The Kabale municipality Member of Parliament Andrew Aja Baryayanga has clashed with Rt Maj.Gen Timothy Mutebile Sabiiti, the Retired UPDF Commander in charge of Engineering Brigade over 2021 general elections.
The two clashed over the weekend speaking at a fund raising function at St Theresa Girls Vocational Secondary School in Rushoroza Southern division Kabale municipality. The function held at the school’s grounds was intended at raising funds to purchase a coaster bus for the school’s easy transport means.
It all started when Rt Maj Gen Mutebile who is planning to run for political office in Kabale Municipality Member of Parliament seat come 2021 was called to speak to the gathering and said that he was forced to retire army services to join politics after allegedly a public outcry over poor leadership in Kabale municipality which has hampered service delivery to the people.
Later on, in his speech, Baryayanga accused Rt Maj Gen Mutebile of arrogance speaking. Baryayanga said that if he was not a delivering leader to the people of Kabale as per earlier said by Mutebire , people of Kabale municipality would not have trusted him with another term of office.
This exchange of words took the intervention of the Kabale Resident district Commissioner Darius Nandinda who had represented the state Minister of Finance for Planning as the function’s guest of honor who advised the politicians to always seek people’s support in a peaceful way without talking ill about their opponents.
