Residents of Butobere ward central division in Kabale municipality Kabale district have rejected piglets donated to them by the Kabale District Woman Member of Parliament Catherine Atwakiire Ndamira.
Atwakiire on Saturday at around 8 pm delegated two people whose names were not clearly revealed to distribute piglets in Butobere ward.
However, the residents were surprised when political assistants told them that each village had to get three piglets.
The residents opposed the decision and insisted that each resident is given a piglet but the Political assistants declined which forced the residents to walk away in protest.
Niwahereza Bruce, a resident says that giving three piglets to a whole village was a sign of hoodwinking the electorates politically.
He says that residents rejected the offer because electorates have already lost interest in her.
Kennedy Tweyongere another resident says that he also rejected piglet after realizing that sharing three piglets as a village was unfair since some of the residents will miss out.
Kennedy accuses Atwakiire of poor planning and bringing the piglets at a wrong time woo them politically.
Atwakiire declined to comment on the matter when contacted saying that she is unaware.
On May 4th 2019 the same legislator while heading in Butanda subcounty Ndorwa West was attacked by angry mob in Muyebe, Kabale district and over 5 pigs were killed in the scuffle.
