The bickering between Capt. Mike Mukula, the Eastern Uganda Vice chairman for the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party and Hellen Adoa Abeku, the incumbent woman MP Serere has reached President Museveni’s desk.
This was revealed by Mukula himself while addressing a press conference at his Soroti City home this morning 12th January 2021.
“My sister is being misinformed, I have contacted the Chairman of the Party and he knows it very well. I supported my sister during the last elections that she won including against FDC. I flew there personally and placed my own resources to make her win. Serere is safe she will win her elections. Am not worried about that,” Mukula said.
The Chairman of NRM Party is President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
Mukula also added that, in politics there are prophets of doom who are merchants of misinformation and has called for calmness during the election process.
Mukula reiterated his earlier comments that Minister Adoa Abeku was misinformed.
Mukula while addressing the media briefing at his residence this morning 12th January 2021 said allegations that he supports Akiror Irene Suzan an Independent to fail Minister Adoa are baseless.
His comments come barely a week after this website exposed how he (Mukula) was having secret talks with independent Akiror.
It was alleged that during that Thursday meeting, Mukula gave Akiror a financial support of over seven Million shillings.
However, Mukula who has repeatedly referred the article as being biased and meant to cause disunity between him and Minister Adoa said the minister will retain her seat.
He also revealed that, he is going to have a meeting with Minister Adoa to harmonize the current impasse.
At least three women have contested in order to unseat Minister Adoa including Alice Alaso of Alliance for National Transition, Suzan Irene Akiror independent and FDC’s Asegge Agnes.
During the same press conference Mukula took time to call on the people of Teso to remain calm and vote leaders wisely.
