The Bushenyi district Lc5 chairperson, Jaffar Bassajjabalaba, has declined to forgive his former opponent in the 2016 general elections, Mr. Paul Kahiigi court costs.
Jaffar said this during an exclusive phone interview with the Managing Director mknewslink.com in response to the appeal made by the Mitooma North Member of Parliament Mr.Thomas Tayebwa who wanted the Kahiigi court costs forgiven.
Jaffar revealed that he can only forgive Kahiigi if his comrades in NRM forgive their opponents.
He cited the case between the Bushenyi-Ishaka municipality Member of Parliament Mr. Gordon Arinda alias ‘Cowboy’ and his predecessor Mr. Odo Tayebwa; the Igara East Member of Parliament, Mr. Micheal Mawanda and his former opponent Mr. Andrew Martial.
Jaffar called upon the public not to over exaggerate his issue yet he is not the first and only.
Kahiigi lost a court case in which he was accusing Bassajjabalaba of election malpractice in the 2016 general election on a post LC5 chairperson for Bushenyi district which was won by the later.
