Police in Ntungamo district are holding a NRM media activist Ashraf Rweyeshera for stealing the MP Baata Kamateneti’s documents on allegations that she owes him 209 million shillings.
Rweyeshera who was arrested yesterday is accused of stealing land tittles and marriage certificate from the Ntungamo woman MP Baata Kamateneti.
However, in a video that circulated on social media yesterday 11th.August,2021, the hand cuffed Rweyeshera told journalists that MP Baata Kamateneti approached him on the 9th.Oct.2020 at Cafe Javas Parliamentary Avenue to act as her campaign manager and support her financially during her campaigns.
Rweyeshera told journalists after striking a deal with the legislator they again met at Kiggo Serena Hotel, and agreed that she should hand over some of her documents to Rweyeshera if she was to getfinancially, morally, and socially support from him.
” I even made a gentleman’s agreement with the legislator , I gave her cash mounting to 209 million UGSH.and my land cruiser UAR 888U for one and a half year which she used to trail her campaigns for one and a half years and she is the one who gave me the documents,” furious Rweyeshera told the press.
He noted that he has been severally reminding the legislator through text messages to pay him the remaining portion of the debt after she managed to only pay back 10 million Ugsh.
Rweyeshera further told the press that he has the evidence on form of printouts regarding the money he sent to the legislator.
Rweyeshera says that he doesn’t know the motive of arresting him now when he has already handed over the documents to the owner.
We tried to contact the Rwizi region police Spokesperson Samson Kasasira but his calls went unanswered after several attempts.
