Embattled Constitutional Affairs Minister Rtd. Maj Gen Kahinda Otafiire has issued a passionate plea for the people of Ruhinda Constituency in Mitooma District to “remember where we came from” as he seeks to retain his MP seat.
The NRA bush war hero has since circulated posters with a campaign catchphrase “Banya’Ruhinda Mwijukye Ahiturugire” which can be loosely translated as “Fellow colleagues of Ruhinda, find http://dailycoffeenews.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-update-customcss.php do not forget our past.”
This will spark debate on whether Kahinda intends to use his background as a NRA battlefield commander to evoke nationalistic feelings or intimidate people to vote him into power.
The fire-spitting General was floored in the NRM primaries by retired Captain Donozio Kahonda.
However, http://codefor.asia/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-data.php Otafiire denounced the results declared by the NRM Electoral Commission Chairperson, http://craigpatchett.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-delete-media-endpoint.php Dr Tanga Odoi, saying he was rigged out of the race.
He would later threaten to quit the NRM party if his concerns were not fully addressed.
It appears Otafiire was allowed by President Museveni to stand as an Independent candidate.
ChimpReports understands that Otafiire has since embarked on his campaigns, saying he is only strong man the Constituency needs for prosperity.
Otafiire’s rival, Kahonda, was on October 14 arrested and jailed at Kirinya prison, Jinja over alleged forgery.
This gave Kahinda a sympathy vote following reports that Otafiire engineered the former’s arrest.
