NTUNGAMO- Ntungamo Municipality MP Gerald Karuhanga has announced that he has already laid plans to kick NRM party out of the district come 2021.
Karuhanga said whereas he has a development agenda for the municipality, many NRM party members are working to frustrate him.
“Had it not been my determination and courage, I would not have been elected as MP because I tried to lobby for you but these people in yellow shirts are trying to sabotage the development such that people can mistrust us who are not in ruling party yet we embraced multiparty dispensation in 2000,” he said.
The legislator, who subscribes to Bobi Wine’s people power political pressure group, made the remarks on Saturday in Ntungamo Municipality as he donated Shs50 million to the business community that lost their property when fire gutted Bankoko Market recently.
Karuhanga advised the beneficiaries to use money to eradicate poverty at house hold level rather using it for Christmas.
“Please I advise you share money equally where one will take 1m shillings but not take it for granted as Christmas gift instead use it for development sustainability, “He added.
Ahead of the 2021 election, six people have already signalled intentions of taking on Karuhanga.
They include former MP Yonnah Musinguzi Bikwatsizehi, Tumwine Godfrey Kanuuma and Collins Kateera all who contested but lost to Karuhanga in the last elections.
Others are Edward Beyendeza Bekunda, the city businessman in real estate, Nkirirehi Johnson the NRM administrative secretary Ntungamo district and Mpiriirwe Naboth, the district councilor for Ntungamo Sub County.
