SHEEMA- Sheema district RDC Frank Kyereere Besigye is in a hot soup after some of Sheema municipality NRM leaders petitioned president Museveni and Minister of presidency Hon Esther Mbayo asking them to him (Kyereere) accusing him of dividing NRM party in Sheema district.
In a today’s press conference at Sheema district NRM offices in Kabwohe town, Orisiima Milton Kahindi aka Kayaman the Sheema district NRM publicity secretary said that RDC Kyereere has totally failed his responsibilities and instead of uniting the NRM party members, he is busy threatening some of them.
“While other RDCs are working harder to convince opposition members to join NRM, Kyereere is also busy threatening some party members who have already come out to support independent candidates forgetting that the independent candidates and supporters are ours (NRM).
Therefore we have today written to the president to tell his RDC to stop intimidating and abusing us as if we are his children. We are old people and we know what we want.” Kayaman told the presser.
Kayaman added that as NRM leaders passed a resolution to support president Museveni and shall not first seek permission from the RDC as he claims because he is busy creating boundaries in president’s supporters. If the whole president can go to the ghetto to look for votes, then why not RDC Kyereere?” Aggrieved Kayaman questioned.
Frank Kyereere the accused RDC however told our reporter that those who are accusing him of favoring non NRM candidates.
“I can’t blame Kayaman for his words because he is shameful of his deeds. How can an NRM publicity secretary support an independent candidate yet we have a flag bearer? If he (Kayaman) is saying that I’m dividing the party because of supporting NRM flag bearer, what about him who supports an independent candidate?’ bitter Kyereere hits back at Kayaman.
The RDC added that “I therefore request these people to come out and support flag bearers because I will never bend for his mistakes of supporting an independent candidate, I request all Sheema district voters to vote only NRM flag bearers” RDC Kyereere advised.
It should be remembered that the Sheema district NRM chairman who doubles as cabinet minister for science innovation and technology Dr Elioda Tumwesigye Katsyamutwe stood as independent against Dickson Kateshuumbwa aka Katesh who is now the NRM flag bearer for the Sheema municipality Parliamentary seat.
