We Can’t Vote For A Homeless Boy, First Show Us Your House – Koboko Voters Reject Ayume’s Son…

Published

on

Voters in Koboko Municipality have shifted goal posts including those who last weekend had a protest against Minister Evelyn Anite who is their MP.

They have also denounced Dr. Charles Ayume who is standing against Evelyn Anite saying they can’t elect someone who doesn’t even have a house and sleeps in hotels. Many of the young people have been going to the NRM leaders in Koboko to register their apology saying they were manipulated by opposition leaders from Obongi County and Maracha who poured them into Koboko town to tear down the Minister’s posters.

Last weekend, a large crowd matched through Koboko town denouncing Anite and they even overpowered police in the area. They pulled down and burnt her posters and those of the President saying they are tired of the incumbent. It was a revenge to the larger procession Anite’s supporters had staged in the same town. And when they realized that NRM leaders had reported to security and they were being hunted throughout West Nile, the boys surrendered and apologized to NRM leaders in Koboko.

At the same time, an old man by the names of Misairi who has been heading Dr. Charles Ayume’s taskforce for the NRM flag has fled Koboko to hide in his home district of Maracha. Hippo another Charles Ayume supporter has also escaped from Koboko and he is hiding in Yumbe after the Kakwa boys who are Anite’s tribesmates vowed to revenge on him over last weekend’s violent procession.

Gen Baguma, another campaign manager for Ayume, has gone into hiding fearing the Kakwa boys who wanted to castrate and skin him alive.  This has left the few Ayume supporters standing alone and very frightened. It’s because of this that the young boys have decided to hand themselves over to NRM leaders and apologize for the last weekend procession.

They have resorted to spilling Ayume’s secrets including revealing that the Mbarara University medicine graduate doesn’t have a home in Koboko. He doesn’t live in Koboko and doesn’t have any property there apart from just bragging about the late Ayume’s name.

They claim that each time he comes to Koboko for his campaigns, Dr. Ayume sleeps in Pearl Inn Hotel which is like his country home and voters are saying they can’t abandon Anite who has a well-known address in the constituency which is her mansion.

The only structure Dr. Ayume would call home is the late Francis Ayume’s house which he left at the foundation level in 2004 when he died in a car accident. It has remained at the foundation without Dr. Charles Ayume doing anything yet he claims to be a very important person in the community.

The slab was abandoned by the children including Dr. Charles Ayume and these days it’s used by low income earners mostly the women and youths who put there tarpaulin tents and turned it into a large tea restraint. The voters are saying somebody who can’t even complete his father’s house can’t be their leader in Koboko moreover to replace a whole Minister who has done for them many things. The concrete for the Ayume house foundation is located in Koboko Central cell in the middle of Koboko town.

He explained that what he wants is justice, not money. Efforts to speak to Angume were futile since he was not picking our calls.

Don’t Be Fooled, Kutesa And M7’s Families Are Positioning Themselves For A Bigger Project – Semujju Nganda, NRM’s Dombo Explains Why They Did Not Use Tibuhaburwa Name On M7 Posters…

Published

L-R: Dombo, President Museveni and Ssemujju

Emmanuel Dombo, The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Director for Information and publicity has disregarded the widely spread perception that his Museveni led party is gradually loosing it’s authoritative ground, having failed to resolve a feud between Museveni’s brother Aine Kaguta alias Sodo and Minister Sam Kutesa’s daughter, Shartsi Musherure.

Sodo and Musherure were nominated as independents to run against each other in the Mawogola North constituency parliamentary race after they failed to agree on who won the party ticket.

Dombo projecting a win for one of the two, said with confidence that whoever will be elected in Sembabule will still be NRM leaning because the opposition could not raise a candidate.

He said, “When you look at the elections that have been conducted so far, the performance of the opposition has been very low. In these areas where we have had our councilors unopposed, who will be their (opposition) polling agents?”

Kira Municipality MP, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, referring to the same incident insinuated that in Sembabule, NRM is projected to win because it is Museveni’s own family matter.

“Kutesa and Museveni’s families don’t need Parliament salary. They are positioning themselves for the future. To them Uganda is their property. The country must begin looking at the transition from Museveni because it is about to happen,” he said.

On why President Museveni’s official campaign portrait was unveiled with his other official name Tibuhaburwa missing, Dombo explained that they started the process at the secretariat minus putting the president’s Tibuhaburwa name.

“It is going to be fixed with time. It is not true that we fix the president’s picture because when he is speaking on TV he is live,” Dombo argued, disregarding MP Ssemujju’s sentiments that President Museveni has to have his face made up to look younger on set. Semujju reiterated that President Museveni is an old man who is literally tired.

Dombo provocatively stated that Semujju like other opposition entities should admit that President Museveni is too hard for them to beat. He added that Semujju’s verbal energy should rather be diverted to the population to decide who’s more powerful.
