President Yoweri Museveni has castigated Wilfred Niwagaba, the incumbent Ndorwa East Member of parliament and asked voters to kick him out.
Museveni was scheduled to visit Ndorwa East on Wednesday afternoon, but abruptly called off the meeting.
He however, used his rally at Kabale Municipal Main Stadium to ask voters to punish Niwagaba by voting him out saying he was anti development.
Museveni claimed that Niwagaba has devoted most of his time to frustrate government programs.
Niwagaba is one of the four legislators who were kicked out from the ruling National Resistance Movement for alleged indiscipline.
The others Theodore Ssekikubo, Lwemiyaga MP, Muhamad Nsereko, Kampala Central and their Buyaga counterpart Barnabas Tinkasimiire.
The four legislators ran into trouble with the party for opposing key party positions. The NRM leadership tried to have them thrown out of parliament in vain. Their case is before the constitutional court.
Niwagaba, who traveled to the constituency to attend the president’s rally, says it is unfortunate that instead of focusing on developmental issues such as improving service delivery, Museveni chose to decampaigning him.
He accuses Museveni for trying to shield his corrupt officials because he feels offended when they are exposed.
He says the failure by Museveni to visit his constituency and use rallies in other places to decampaign him doesn’t scare him since his voters have their reasons.
Johnson Baguma, the LC V councilor Buhara sub county says he was not happy by the decision of the president to call off the rally in Ndorwa East.
He suspects that the president called off the people because of the poor turn up resulting from the poor mobilization by the office of the resident district commissioner.
Baguma says that the voters Ndorwa East support their MP alongside President Museveni and sees no reason why t
Earlier in the day, Museveni addressed at a rally at Nyeikunama Primary school and launched the Muhanga town council gravity water flow scheme.
He also visited to Kitumba Sub County to inspect the ongoing construction of a Tea factory and visited the family of the late James Karambuzi, one pioneer recruits of the Front for National Salvation-Fronasa.
Karambuzi was killed by firing squad together with other activists on February 10, 1973 at Kabale Municipal Stadium.
