State Minister for Economic Monitoring Hon Henry Banyenzaki was petitioned to intervene in the matter, but local leaders would not heed to his instructions.

Minister Banyenzaki recently wrote a letter ordering Mbarara RDC Nixon Kabuye to allow commencement of the construction of a new market but this has been disregarded.

The traders accuse their chairperson Margaret Bagezire of clinging onto the market land title.

It is said that the chairperson used the land title as collateral to acquire a loan of about Shs 900 million.

Mrs Margret reportedly borrowed Shs 800 million from a tycoon named Dubai, and another 110 million from one Chris Boona who is husband to the district woman Mp Emma Boona.

It is believed that the market land title is between these two tycoons.

The traders’ association chairperson Margret was elected in 2007 and her term in office expired some time back but she has refused to go.

The traders are now worried that once the association is dissolved, they are likely to lose the market.

“You will be saved by your deeds because at the level of primaries, we are all equal and stopping someone from standing would send a bad signal to the people. Don’t forget that we have competitors in other political parties who are monitoring whatever we are doing. Just identify your weaknesses and plan to be stronger rather than blocking other people who want to stand against you.” He said.
