The minister for Justice and Constitutional affairs; Maj.Gen.Kahinda Otafiire has lashed out at Capt.Kahonda’s supporters calling them stupid who just talk what they don’t understand.
In an exclusive telephone interview with www.mknewslink.com editors, Kahinda dismissed allegations that he uses his office to trouble Capt.Kahonda and the people of Ruhinda constituency at large.
Kahonda was lected the MP for Ruhinda County in last parliamentary election, defeating Maj.Gen.Kahinda Otafiire who had been in the seat since 1994.
Kahonda is currently in Kirinya Government prison serving a nine month imprisonment following a forgery case filed against him by the state. However, he has appealed in high court and applied for bail which is to be heard on 24th July 2017.
Since Kahonda’s detention his supporters have been accusing minister Kahinda Otafiire of using his office to antagonize Ruhinda voters.
Friday morning over 300 people calling themselves supporters of Kahonda stormed Entebbe state house demanding President Yoweri Museveni’s assistance to secure Kahonda’s release.
However, they were denied access to the president hence pitching a camp at the state house gate.
Maj.Gen.Kahinda Otafiire was recently in Mitooma district where he allegedly boasted against the voters there saying that they voted wrongly.
