Dr Francis Mwesigye Runumi, http://central-alarm.com/wp-admin/includes/noop.php the former Kabale municipality MP contestant in the February general elections has won the chairmanship of the International Community of the Banyakigezi Uganda Chapter (ICOB-U) after his opponent stood down.

Dr Runumi who is  also the Prime Minister in charge  of Kabale in the controversial “Caesar Mulenga development kingdom” was elected unopposed after  the incumbent   Dr Peter Ngategyeize  withdrew from the race, http://corpuschristimiami.com/wp-admin/includes/meta-boxes.php claiming that some bad elements had been paid to participate in the elections.

Dr Ngategyeize said that he had done a lot for ICOB since its inception, http://corifentreprises.fr/wp-includes/rss.php adding that his decision to quit the race was for the good of the association.

“It looks like my friend Dr Runumi wanted it so badly so he should get it, I will serve elsewhere else,” said Dr Ngategyeize.

The election exercise was delayed for over two hours as calls increased for its cancelation, following reports that some foreigners had been brought in to participate.

In the other races,  Grace Kamusiime Mutebile was elected vice chairperson of ICOB, Consolata N Tumwesigye as  general Secretary   unopposed, to be assisted by  Atwongire Emily Claire.

The new  Treasurer  is Namanya Berna  to be assisted by Lydia Tusingwire  while the representatives are Pauline Rukirande Kasya (Kabale) Oscar Nimpereza (Kanungu),  Kanyamunyu Fidelis  (Kisoro) Scovia Kyarisiima  (Rubanda) and  Benjamin  Akababyeyi for the youth.

The international community of the Banyakigezi convention that begun  on 27th December 2016 ended on 30th December 2016 at the White Horse Inn Kabale under the theme “bringing ICOB to the community “.

The association brings together all the people from the Kigezi sub region that live in Uganda as well as in the Diaspora “out of the arising need to promote the cultural, social and economic development of Banyakigezi in Uganda and in the Diaspora.”
