THE parliamentary campaigns in Jinja East constituency kicked off yesterday with candidates trading accusations against each other.

The Democratic Party flag-bearer, Moses Talugende, sparked the fire when he cautioned people at his campaign rally in Mpumudde division to guard against electing people with bad records.

“Look at the people contesting critically. Some may be using money to blind you from their disgraced reputations. We need people who are strong, with clean track records,” Talugende said without giving names.

But during the rally, the Jinja district DP chairman, Samuel Kitanda, distributed photocopies of a newspaper notice dated March 13, 2002 in which the newspaper cautioned the public against dealing with Moses Balyeku as an employee of the media organisation.

Balyeku, whose photo was placed besides the notice, is also contesting for the Jinja East parliamentary seat.

Others in the race are FDC’s Harry Kasigwa, who is also the incumbent, Najib Kezaala, Wilson Waiswa Nabeeta, Saleh Nakendo and Zaake Kibedi, the Eastern Youth MP.

When contacted, Balyeku said he was not in position to comment about the notice.
