However, the former ministers who were defeated in the 2021; Elioda Tumwesigye and Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu attended and were given a chance to speak to the people.
The voters who spoke to www.mknewslink.com after function revealed that they were extremely unhappy for electing leaders who don’t respect the president whom they are supposed to ask for services when he visits the area.
“These four MPs Kateshumbwa, Mushemeza, Nyakikongoro and Kibaju have be shamed us,” one of the voters said.

The president was represented by minister of trade and cooperatives Francis Mwebesa who read the president’s speech that was rich in parish development model, Emyooga and other development related issues.
