Published

on


Former State Minister for Labour, Employment and Industrial Relations Herbert Kabafunzaki has said he is more than prepared financially to seek re-election to parliament in next year’s election.

The Rukiga County Member of Parliament who was in 2017 arrested for soliciting a bribe from an investor and subsequently fired as minister, said he has enough money to convince voters to send him back to parliament.

Addressing residents of Kamwezi sub county, Kabafunzaki warned those eyeing his seat that they won’t be able to outmuscle him.

“I sometimes hear funny statements that I no longer have money. If I don’t have the money, then who has it?” he said.

Kabafunzaki went on to say that his private businesses have made his so rich that he decided to donate his salary from parliament to his constituents.

He added that he keeps some of his money in sacks in his house, add added that none of his contenders stand chance of outspending him.

Kabafunzaki was in 2016 elected as MP on the NRM ticket after defeating FDC strongman Jack Sabiiti.

This time he faces challengers who include former Rukiga MP Adison Kakuru and Dr Alexander Kampikaho the Rukiga LCV chairman. These two will be battling the minister in the NRM primaries.

Others are Roland Ndyomugyenyi and Sepi Brian Musinguzi who are independents.

Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.
