The Rubanda East Member of Parliament Henry Musasizi on Sunday clashed with the Rubanda district Chairperson Jogo Kenneth Biryabarema and Christians of Kigazi COU in Hamurwa Sub County Rubanda district, when he asked Christians to arrange another fundraising function and invite him as the guest of honor if they want him to give them a better contribution towards the completion of their church.
Sunday’s fundraising had Biryabarema as the guest of honor where a five million shillings was raised towards the completion of the church.
However, when Musasizi who also attended the function was invited to speak,he said he was only going to contribute 30 bags of cement adding that the church should arrange another fund raising and invite him as the guest of honor if they wanted a better contribution.
Musasizi told the Christian that by giving a better contribution he will have belittled the guest of honor who is also vying for the Rubanda East Parliamentary seat.
This angered Retired Rev Simon Komunda, the former Nyamabare parish priest who led the service describing Musasizi’s words as disrespectful not only to Jogo but also to the entire church.
Biryabarema also asked for respect and cooperation among political leaders in the area saying that such utterances were un called for since development is key on his agenda.
