This report ruffled feathers in FMU, with officials threatening to take a stern action against the organisers of the rally.
In an attempt to resolve the standoff in motorsport, Bakkabulindi on Monday met with the executive of UMRDC at his ministry’s office.
He denied being involved in the banning of drivers.
The minister promised to meet the FMU executive about the issue but he is yet to schedule the date for the meeting.
“We met the minister who told us he has never been involved in our wrangles but he is ready to meet the two sides so as to bring the house into harmony,” said Nasser Mutebi, one of the suspended drivers who attended the meeting.
However, in the meeting, Bakkabulindi pleaded for a fair punishment.
He warned against the “unrealistic” penalty of six years, saying “the game still needs these talented drivers.”
