Police in Kalungu district have recovered three National Resistance Movement (NRM) voters' registers that were reportedly stolen from the party office.

The three missing NRM registers have been recovered from Daniel Sejjoba's home at Kiwesa village, Lusango parish in Bukulula Sub County in Kalungu district.
 
The registers are for Kansamba village in Bugonzi parish, Muwomya village and Kasenyi village. Muwomya and Kasenyi villages are all in Kyambala parish, Bukulula sub county in Kalungu district.
 
On Monday police arrested Christopher Mulindwa, the Bukulula sub county NRM registrar and Daniel Sejjoba, the area district councillor over the stolen registers.
 
Kalungu District Police Commander, Abudulatif Zzake says that after spending several days in police custody Ssejoba confessed to the plot to steal the registers.
 
Ssejoba reportedly revealed that he had connived with Mulindwa to sneak into the office to steal the party registers for Bukulula sub county.
 
Ssejoba, who is seeking to retain his councillor seat, asked Mulindwa to help him delete some names from the register and insert others. Ssejoba offered Mulindwa 500, 000 shillings to do this.
 
Ssejoba then revealed to police that he had hidden the registers at his home in Kiwesa village. He then led police to the scene where the registers were recovered.
 
Zzake says the two men have been released on police bond.
 
Livingstone Matovu, Kalungu district NRM registrar, urged police to investigate claims that Ssejoba may have handed over photocopied copies of the registers to former NRM Secretary General Amama Mbabazi.
 
Matovu says he has information that Ssejoba is the coordinator of Mbabazi activities in Kalungu district. Sejjoba was unavailable to respond to these allegations.
