Mbarara-Last week, there was an MK Movement mega function held at Bwizibwera play ground in Bwizibwera, Kashari North Mbarara district. Allegations thereafter emerged that  some money collected from the well-wishers (sponsors) for the same function was diverted by some individuals.

There were also some rumours circulating that the organisers of the Ankore Sub-region MK Inter-regional Team Building function also received some money from the Office of Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba totaling to shs100mn.

However, Polly Katwire Karamuzi, the Chairman Organizing Committee for MK Interregional  Team Building  activities in Ankore Sub-region has dismissed allegations.

Speaking to this publication, Katwire said that he led the committee and was able to receive some money through contributions that were raised from the well-wishers.

He added that all the money that was received was used for the purpose of the function including other pledges like the cows, water, rice etc and all were used for what they were supposed to do. That all the six cows which were given from the sponsors were all slaughtered and eaten by the masses that turned up on the function.

They used between shs70mn -80mn and there was no balance. That instead some of the committee members put in their own money including himself to a tune of shs8mn.

MP Bazir Bataringaya also supported. Most of the sponsors paid their money directly to the service providers.

He attributed these allegations to some people who refused to accept the notification of all the groups as it was guided by Gen. Muhoozi. He added that the people who are circulating such false allegations are just against him as Katwire particularly.

“We got many forces against us from the time when we launched our activities as MK Movement Inter-regional Team Building in Ankore Region.   I must tell the public that whatever money I got and my committee we used it for its purpose. And I want to dismiss allegations that I received shs100mn from Gen. Muhoozi for the function we did in Bwizibwera.  For us we are a Nyekundire group who put our own money to make sure that we promote our son Gen. Muhoozi. For us we are mobilizers of MK movement,” clarified Katwire.

At the function that was held in Bwizibwera, there was opening of MK Movement offices in Bwizibwera and it was officiated by Minister Frank Tumwebaze who was delegated by Gen. Muhoozi. There were also football matches and entertainment. DEAR READER, DO YOU HAVE A HOT STORY? CALL/TEXT/WHATSAPP 0777959024 OR EMAIL: WITH AS MUCH EVIDENCE AS POSSIBLE.
