National Resistance Movement (NRM) Party leaders hailing from Bududa and Sironko districts have rubbished claims that Bugisu has endorsed Mukula as their sole candidate.
Speaking to this reporter today 27th July in Mbale City, the Delegates led by Chairmen Wabuyobo Ibrahim of Bududa Sub County and Mugusha Simon of Zesui Sub County said Mukula is lying.
Recently the media was awash with news that Capt. Mike MuKula, the incumbent NRM Regional Vice Chairman Eastern had been endorsed by Bugisu and Kapchorwa delegates as their sole candidate.
“In fact for us in Bududa and Sironko, our candidate is Sanjay Tanna and not Mukula who has never met us since he was elected the regional Vice Chairman,” said Wabuyobo.
The duo revealed that there is no way they are going to re-elect Mukula because he has let them down.
“Mukula is self-centered and does not care for the NRM Party leaders at lower levels,” lamented Mugusha adding that they have not received what the President promised them because their regional leader has not pushed enough.
“President Museveni promised Sub County Party Chairmen a motorcycle each and one heifer. These have not been fulfilled till now.”
Wabuyobo also accused Mukula of dragging down the popularity of NRM in Eastern Uganda. He said Mukula does not where NRM Party leaders are since he has never met them from the time he was elected to the position.
These two accused Mukula of recently convening a meeting of only 82 Party members in Mbale. These represented all the 6 districts of Bugisu sub region sidelining most of them who are on the ground.
