Mubiru stated the reason of the deployment was the presence of First Lady Janet Museveni in the area, which is her home district.

Mafabi calls for calm

“After a long standoff the Police and the state machinery succumbed to the pressure because the man of Budadiri was not about to give in. As I report the delegates meeting is going on,” said Mubiru.

However, sources in security have told Chimpreports that most FDC delegates in Ntungamo, the birthplace of Mugisha Muntu, had threatened to attack Mafabi for questioning the former army commander’s nationality.

It is important to note that Muntu’s departed father Oyera was a prominent figure in Ntungamo politics during the reign of Milton Obote.

A school, Muntuyera High School, Kitunga was constructed in memory of Muntu’s dad.

Mafabi is beseiged by police officers

Mafabi’s camp was lately hit by a smear campaign scandal, with the legislator’s strategists especially Rtd. Maj Rubaramira Ruranga, labeling Muntu an NRM mole and “Rwandese,” statements that stoked tensions in Ntungamo.

Muntu is also one of the most respected figures in the region, considering the role he played in the NRA war that ushered President Yoweri Museveni into power and later as army commander in the 1990s.
