Kampala: The Electoral Commission (EC) has suspended campaign meetings in Kampala and 10 other districts and cities in the country due to the escalating  Covid-19 infections and continuous violation of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) by some political candidates.

The EC spokesperson, Paul Bukenya on Saturday revealed that campaign meetings in the said districts which are considered by the Ministry of health to be registering high spread of the virus have been suspended starting December 26, 2020, until further notice.

Other districts where campaign meetings have been suspended include Mbarara, Kabarole, Luwero, Kasese, Masaka, Wakiso, Jinja, Kalungu, Kazo, and Tororo.

“The EC has suspended campaign meetings in districts/cities categorized by the Ministry of Health as having a high spread of Covid19. From 26/12/20, no campaign meetings will be held in Mbarara, Kabarole, Luwero, Kasese, Masaka, Wakiso,  Jinja, Kalungu, Kazo, Kampala and Tororo,” Mr Bukenya tweeted.

This development comes just hours after the Ministry of Health on Friday confirmed 446 new Covid-19 infections with a total of  33,360 cases and 245 deaths.
