There was drama in Ruteete sub county Kabarole district Sunday evening after local leaders fought for shs 300000 they received from NRM to mobilize the president’s votes.
A fight broke out between Mugisa Deogratious, the LCI chairperson of Kifuka cell, Rweihamba parish Ruteete Sub County and Tumwesige Abudul, NRM chairperson of the same cell when Abdul learnt that Mugisa had used the 300,000 shillings NRM door to door campaign facilitation without his knowledge and had remained with 177,500 shillings.
Two weeks back, The NRM party distributed 300,000shs to all local council one committee and 100,000shs to local council two chairpersons to facilitate the smooth running of virtual campaigns for all NRM flag bearers.
During a village gathering to distribute the money, Abdul accused Mugisa of using a huge amount of money without the consent of the village committee while Mugisa claimed he has been inviting Abdul for committee meetings to forge a way forward on how to use the money in vain, breaking into a fight that left minor injuries on both parties.
Residents who saved the situation agreed to engage Ruteete Sub county LC3 chairperson Musinguzi Deo to find a way forward on the money and give feedback to the residents the next day.
However speaking to our reporter, Aston Kyarigonza the Kabarole district NRM treasurer asserted that the money is meant to help those who will be pinning NRM campaign posters to buy glue and water during the course.
