After losing the election to Basajjabalaba, Kahiigi challenged the results in High court that also ruled in favour of Basajjabalaba as the winner.
Kahiigi still was not satisfied with the judgment thus petitioning Court of Appeal where he also lost the case and was ordered to pay costs to Jafari Basajjabalaba.
During the burial of late George Tibakuna in Kakanju sub-county on Wednsday, the mourners asked Jafari Basajjabalaba to forgive Kahiigi and exonerate him from the court costs the betterment of Bushenyi district.
In his response, Basajjabalaba said if Kahiigi has financial trauma, he will forgive him because he doesn’t want him to die in prison.
