Two junior brothers of Bank of Uganda Governor Emmanuel Tumusime Mutebile are fighting for the Kabale Municipality seat.
Major General Timothy Sabiti Mutebile who retired recently to join politics and his young brother Joseph Mutebile a banker want to contest come 2021 parliamentary polls.
Joseph who has contested twice and lost (2006 and 2011) to the current MP Andrew Baryayanga an independent says his supporters want him to continue with his project while his senior brother says he is just stepping in the race to spoilhis votes.
The General announced early this year that he would contest for the seat on the NRM ticket but needed to be retired from the army.
Speaking to www.mknewslink.com Sabiti said that Joseph contested and hardly raised 1% of the votes wondering why he wants to come again after he scored badly.
Gen Mutebile also said that Joseph was trying to blackmail and intimidate him by announcing that he is in the race
but did not give details of the allegations.
He however said Joseph was free to contest.
Joseph Mutebile answered and said, “he thinks I have scored less than one percent but let him step in the race and ‘test the water’ he will tell us its temperatures.”
