Minister of Science, Technology and Innovations who is also aspiring MP for Sheema Municipality Dr.Elioda Tumwesigye has warned that he will investigate thoroughly a report about electricity in Sheema given to President Museveni by some leaders.
What angered most the President and Dr.Elioda during his rally today July 19, 2018 at Kihunda playgrounfd in Kagango division excluding Kihunda ward on the list of areas to benefit from the electricity.
President Museveni while campaigning for Elioda and the NRM mayoral candidate Abel Kahaara at Kihunda playground wondered why Kihunda had no power. He read through the list that was given to him but Kihunda was not there.
“Me, I thought I was in DR Congo because I don’t see electric polls and wires in Kihunda. We have managed to extend power to far rural areas like Ryamiyonga and Mwizi in Rwampala, How can Kihunda fail to have power?” –Museveni Wondered
The president called Minister Elioda on the podium to explain why Kihunda has not had power and even was not on the list of areas to benefit soon.
Elioda told the president and the people of Kihunda that Kihunda was on the list to benefit through a loan from the Islamic development bank. He added that the areas the president read benefited from French Grant.
Dr.Elioda added that he will investigate the people who made the report to discredit him before the president and the people of Kihunda.
The president advised the voters in Sheema not to vote Virginia Mugyenyi of FDC whom he termed as just a mere small woman but later said the law would catch him up because he had used bad language and started addressing her properly.
He also called upon the voters in Sheema municipality to vote for Mayoral flag bearer Mr.Abel Kahaara. He warned voters that if they vote for opposition or non-NRM members, they won’t get services.
He gave an example; for Buhweju constituency and Buhweju district which voted for FDC’s Mwijukye Francis who is always moving around making noise attacking NRM and Museveni but his people are not getting services.
The president also addressed the second rally at Kabwohe playground which by the time we wrote this story, it was still ongoing. He also addressed rallies for NRM flag bearers in Ibanda Municipality.
