Ishaka central market traders are clashing over money that was donated to them by the Senior Presidential Advisor on media and public relations Ms. Mary Karooro Busingye.
The former minister allegedly visited the market last week and supported them with 1.5 M shillings which she handed to one of their colleagues Mariati Nahwera Nkongoro since the chairman was not present.
Karooro advised that the money be shared equally amongst the traders as a way of supporting them. However, traders claim that Mariati promised to share out the money the following day but up to now they have not received anything.
Speaking to www.mknewslink.com reporter yesterday, Peace Busingye, Faridah Nsimire and Juliet Tusasirwe some of the traders said that when they tried to ask about the money, Nahwera lashed at them with abuses and harsh words which ended into a fight.
Moses Tumuhimbise the Ishaka Central market chairman told www.mknewslink.com that by the time the money was given out, he was not around but only got the complaints from the traders and when he tried to ask the accused, she became rude and tough.
He thus called upon traders to remain calm and asked Ms. Karooro to come and address the issue because it has brought division among traders.
When contact on the matter, Mariati Nahwera the accused arrogantly told our reporter that she had no time to talk to the media.
