PHOTOS: Kibazanga Takes Oath to Defend NRM

Former Busongora South FDC MP, here discount http://clintonhouse.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-get-customcss.php Christopher Kibazanga took oath to defend the NRM ideology and principles after defecting from the main opposition party, http://ccrail.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/3rd-party/polldaddy.php FDC.

According to pictures released by State House, http://coaststringfiddlers.com/wp-includes/class-wp-widget.php the once outspoken FDC firebrand is seen holding a bible and taking oath before President Museveni at State House Entebbe.

The NRM Secretary General Kasule Lumumba also graced the occasion.

In Parliament, Kibazanga made a name for eloquently articulating the needs of the common man and condemned government excesses.

The timing of the top FDC official’s defection comes just a few months ahead of the 2016 general elections.

On October 6, 2011, Kibazanga said he would not return to Parliament because his efforts in fighting corruption had hit a dead end.

“I am happy for having been a member of the sixth parliament that tried to clean government of corrupt officials, only to be returned by President Museveni who saw no need of fighting corruption by then,” he said then.

“What we saw 15 years ago some short sighted Ugandans can see it now after 15 years. What we see while kneeling down some Ugandans who think they have vision cannot see even when you take them on top of mount Rwenzori. What a leadership we have, God is not fair to us. But society gets leaders it deserves.”

ChimpReports broke the news of Kibazanga’s quiet defection in July 2014.

Kibazanga, who is the younger brother of Rwenzururu King Wesley Membere, crossed to NRM with FDC bigwig, Gideon Mugisa.

During the State House function, President Museveni held discussion with cultural leaders from the Rwenzururu Kingdom of Kasese and the Obudhingiya of Bundibugyo.
