Green Party’s Frank Gabineza has announced he will not campaign in Nyagatare District until the District Mayor and Rwimiyaga Sector Executive Secretary resign.
Habineza told the media on Tuesday after closing his campaign rally in Kayonza before continuing in Rwamagana ahead of the forthcoming presidential polls scheduled on August 4th.
Habineza said his campaign rallies had previously been interrupted in Nyagatare and in Kirehe and recommended that justice should hold accountable anyone who was involved in such frustrating interruptions.
For the case of Nyagatare, Habineza revealed that he is yet to campaign in the Eastern Province-based district, where school children challenged his rally by interfering the party’s morale with puzzling vocals in the process. He says he plans to go to campaign at the district site again only if some of the district staff resign.
He said, “We are waiting to hear that they resigned before we go back there for the campaign. We did not campaign in Nyagatare because they [district officials] stopped us from campaigning there and took us to the grave, instead”
Leaving there [from the grave], we were badly welcomed until motorcyclists attempted to put us in danger by voluntarily trying to cause accident on us. I think you saw it happen. We are waiting to hear that they resigned before we go back there for campaign rally”
He suggests the District Mayor and the Executive Secretary of Rwimiyaga where he expected to rally his campaign should resign.
Habineza adds that continued investigations are being held in Kirehe, too. “The place has been the scene where over 200 school children gathered at the site and started to oppose everything we were talking about, by instead beating our political party people. We are waiting for the response on both issues. I also believe you saw how motorcyclists blocked our way holding sticks and flags of another political party,” he said,
He appeals that local leaders should treat all candidates in the same way while he was wondering why they interfere his campaign while theyare there to serve the community.
“The mayors are there for us, the people, the same to local leaders. They should therefore understand that a candidate is not a different person and deserves respect like others”.
