Ingrid Turinawe gets hostile reception at Eala campaigns

What you need to know:

  • Today is the day when the MPs vote for Uganda’s representatives. Various nominees have been campaigning on the floor or Parliament, trying to convince the rest that they are worthy of being selected. So Ms Turinawe’s nomination as one of the two Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) nominees to the East African Legislative Assembly afforded them an opportunity to “punish” her.

  • Ms Turinawe’s nomination has been eventful. At one point, the President of FDC Major General Mugisha Muntu rescinded her nomination. Ms Turinawe would later say she had not agreed to withdraw from the race. Maj. Gen. Muntu later said he had been misled.

As political activist Ingrid Turinawe made her way from Najjanankumbi to Parliament in the centre of Kampala, charges against her floated through Parliament’s corridors.
