FDC Floors NRM in Mbarara Boda Polls

Mbarara bodaboda cyclists went to polls yesterday in protest of delays by the Municipality

Bodaboda cyclists in Mbarara yesterday organized their own elections to choose their leaders after they were held back by the Mbarara Municipality leadership.

The cyclists say they decided to hold what they termed as ‘protest polls, shop ‘ after the Municipal council kept procrastinating on the exercise since September.

These believe the municipality has been postponing the polls to favor the current chairman of the cyclists association, and one Arinaitwe Shwento, drugs who is also a local NRM cadre.

Elected chairman James Arinaitwe said he joined the business as far back as 1993, and believes he will steer the association to the right direction.
