Dr. Baryomunsi who is also the Member of Parliament for Kinkiizi County East  in Kanungu district alleges that the company was carrying out fraudulent activities which he wants investigated by the IGG.

Philip Zikampereza the chairperson of Kabale tea nursery bed operators says that recently they met the Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda as government had agreed to pay them the money owed to the association, amounting to 7.2 billion shillings.

He adds that “it was then that minister Baryomunsi turned around and wrote to the IGG calling for the investigations thus government halting the pay.”

Zikampereza asked government to intervene and save the situation saying that “this being the ‘Kisanja Hakuna Mchezo’, president Museveni needs to discipline Baryomunsi for sabotaging government programs of eradicating poverty.”

A one Henry Musekura says that President Museveni should investigate Dr. Baryomunsi as he is fighting the government that he is serving, saying blocking the payment of the nursery bed operators is one way of sabotaging government program of fighting poverty.

“Let the clergy pray for him so that the Satan that is in him should go,” Masekura added.

Johnson Kangwamu one of the tea nursery operators the President needs to reign on this minister since the minister a government saboteur as he is fighting the government program of tea growing which is one of the projects that government is funding in eradicating poverty in the people  of Kigezi.

He accuses the minister of using   tea project to fight his own political wars.

“Baryomunsi should stop his funny politics and separate us from misunderstandings with Garuga. President Museveni should come to our rescue,” said Kangwamu.

ChimpReports’ efforts to reach Dr. Baryomunsi for a comment turned futile as all his known phones were off.
