On Friday night, Kabonero was in company of Rukutana travelling from a rally in Ntungamo ahead of Monday’s NRM primaries when they fell in an ambush of Karuhanga’s armed supporters.

“The car belonging to Rukutana was smashed with stones and pangas,” said a source who spoke to us on condition of anonymity.

Rukutana and Karuhanga are fiercely contesting in the NRM primaries for Rushenyi County MP seat.

The trio was unreachable for comment when we posted this story.

However, contacted by ChimpReports on Saturday afternoon, Uganda’s Ambassador to Rwanda, Richard Kabonero (Bob Kabonero’s brother) confirmed the incident.

“It is true, my brother and Mr Rukutana were attacked last night as they drove from a rally. The attackers were armed with pangas, hoes as well as guns,” said Kabonero.

“The matter is now being investigated by police,” he added.

This is the latest unpleasant incident in the ruling party’s primaries marred by violence.

NRM’s office in Sembabule was recently torched in the violence that has spread to many parts of the country.

The primaries are slated for Monday next week. The successful MP candidates will then face off with the opposition or independent candidates in the national elections.

Kabonero told us that after being attacked, Rukutana’s bodyguard fired gunshots in the air.

“That’s when the attackers fled. If Mr Rukutana didn’t have a bodyguard, the worst would have happened,” said Kabonero.

We have also separately learnt that Gen Kale Kayihura was contacted last night about the attack thus ordering the arrest of the suspected perpetrators.

“The notorious thugs of Karuhanga only identified as Jamada, Nasser and Kaunda are under arrest,” said a security source.
A considerable number of players from the Eastern part of the country turned up in several outlets to take part in the Nile Special National Open Pool Championship Regional Qualifiers played over the weekend.

A one, illness http://cystiphane-biorga.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/quiz.php Eric Akwi perhaps was among the few who woke up in the right side of Lady luck as he cruised with admirable ease to clinch the top spot in Jinja at Queens Palace bar.

“It was a great but tiresome night, http://covintec.cl/wp-admin/includes/import.php i was a bit shaken by Sebi Onito but after defeating him i had hopes,” An elated Akwi told ChimpSports.

Akwi won 3-1 in a best of five rounds in the beginning stage before coming 2-1 from behind to narrowly overcoming Anito 3-2.

The last eight and semis were rather a walkover cueing past Silas Waswa by 4-0 straight games in a best of seven quarter finals. He then confirmed his Ushs.150, 000 cash prize spinning past Umar Ssempija in the final with a clean sweep in best of nine.

” I will get a better trainer because now i have my eye on the title. Contenders should know that am going to Lugogo for an outright win,” He concluded.
