Mr. Richard Tabaro, the Hoima Deputy Resident District Commissioner was filmed fighting with a woman, beating with a cane.

The woman tried to defend herself using fists and kicks but the RDC had severely insulted her.

According to Daily Monitor, the woman seen in the video fighting with the RDC is identified as Ms Elizabeth Katungi, a sister to Ms Asinansi Nyakato, the Forum for Democratic Change candidate in the Hoima woman MP race that took place on Thursday.

“We have a video footage of Mr Tabaro beating up Ms Katungi with a stick when she asked him to refrain from engaging in election irregularities,” Ms Nyakato said on Friday.

According to Nyakato, Mr Tabaro, guarded by UPDF soldiers was protecting a group of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) supporters that were intimidating voters and moving with pre-ticked ballot papers to various polling stations.
