As it is in the Bible that while Jesus’ children were playing, also those of Satan joined them, Like wise on 2nd February 2019 at Nyakashambya primary school while jubilating the recent PLE results, Sheema district Chairman LC 5 canon David Kabigumira crossed the river and started attacking journalists.
Kabigumira accused journalists that they are ever reporting against him that he has tried to keep quiet whenever they report news which don’t favor him but that fire burnt his heart hence coming out openly and broadly to attack them.
Kabigumira also blamed journalists especially TV West journalist Sheikh Abdurhatifu that he has never showed him (Kabigumira) on TV yet he speaks developmental things however that he appears on TV West news when he has done something wrong.
He added that he no longer wants to be humiliated but to always openly introduce some of the journalists wherever they meet in public saying that “tindikuza kworoora omwana webinyoro ngu nyina akunde” meaning that he won’t carry a baby with leprosy to be loved by it’s mother.
On the same ceremony, Sheema district woman MP Hon Atuhaire Jacklet Rwabukurukuru refuted Kabigumira’s words saying that she has been watching and reading News but that she sees him (Kabigumira) there, therefore what he is saying was not true.
She later asked Kabigumira and one journalist to shake hands and reconcile a thing that never happened.
Remember this isn’t the first time that Kabigumira is attacking journalists, last year when Sheema district was passing out budget, he vowed to introduce a four wheel drive against journalists alleging that they were reporting only negative things about him.
He then vowed that he was to call all Sheema district religious leaders, journalists of Bushenyi, political leaders and other stake holders saying that he wanted to ask journalists where they get news they report about him however no one knows where his idea ended from.
It is alleged that Kabigumira’s issues with journalists is all about religion differences saying that he was fighting against former west Ankole diocese His Emeritus Rt Rev Yona Mwesigwa Katoneene and the current Bishop Twinomujuni Johnson, it is also alleged that Kabigumira doesn’t favor non protestants after various media channels reported that he hid from Catholic priests who were to ask him why he doesn’t want Catholic people to work at the district.
