Early Politicking is not developmental: MP Kamuntu

By APN Reporter


Vices of early politicking mushrooming in Kigezi sub region are
retarding development, Moses Kamuntu Mwongera  Rubanda West County Member of parliament has said.

Kamuntu stressed this on Saturday while speaking as the guest of honor
during the Alumni reunion and fudaraising ceremony at Bukinda
secondary school commonly known as Highland in Bukinda sub county,
Rukiga district.    Kamuntu expressed disappointment over early
campaigns that have already started to uproot the incumbent
legislators in Kigezi particular Rukiga district.

In Rukiga district, Moses Kanunga, Patrick Kiconco Katabazi and
Lastone Besigye have already come out to publically conduct campaigns
to contest against the incumbent Rukiga County Member of parliament
during 2026 general elections.  Some of them have already printed
t-shirts bearing their images and names and words wooing voters to
back them in 2026.

However, Kamuntu says that early politicking makes voters go stray in
demanding services from incumbent leaders.  Kamuntu wonders why some
people are involved in early campaigning instead of helping leaders
still in service to advocate for services like tarmac roads and
factories in the district.

Rukiga County MP, Rolland Bish Ndyomugyenyi urged learners to be
disciplined if they are to perform better.  Preaching during the
service, the Bishop of the Diocese of Kigezi, Rt Rev Gaddie Akanjuna
asked the people to always avoid despising the humble beginning of any
project, saying that everything has a small beginning. He advised
christians to avoid extravagant spending on the money they have been
saving for the entire year, instead only spend on basic needs only
because of the current economic crisis.

A total of total of 112 million shillings both in cash and pledge was
today collected towards the completion of the Staff house. 79.5
million shillings was in cash while 32 million shillings was in
pledge. Kamuntu contributed 7 million shillings while Ndyomugyenyi
contributed 5 million shillings.
