One of the stern supporters of the controversial constitutional amendment to remove the Presidential age limit Hon Ibrahim Abiriga, recently received a pleasant surprise from State House.
The Arua Municipality MP, sources told us, has received Shs24million to help him acquire a new specialized car.
The 61 year old MP caught media public attention, after joining Parliament last year owing to his different dress code.
The MP enjoys donning everything, from top to bottom yellow, his NRM party color.
Chimpreports understands Abiriga has been admiring to cruise in yellow a Volkswagen and he was pictured posing with one.
The car (pictured below) belongs to a Chinese national who had promised to sell it to him but later declined for unknown reasons.
Sources tell us Abiriga, an NRA Captain later approached the President about his desire and he was promised help to acquire his own.
“Abiriga recently received a call from a State House staff who informed him that money was deposited on his Housing Finance Bank account; a total of Shs24million,” said a source told us.
Abiriga, the source tells us withdrew the money and moved around different car bonds along Jinja Road, before placing an order for one to be shipped in at Shs 18million.
“The Volkswagen he ordered for is yellow both outside and the interior,” the source said.
Chimpreports made efforts to reach at Abiriga but his known numbers were off; we later learnt that he was on his way to Arua.
Senior Presidential Press Secretary, Don Wanyama told us he wasn’t aware of the development.
Last month, Abiriga, now a known darling of President Museveni’s received a special of gift of locally made sandals from the Commander in Chief’s collection during the Budget Reading at Serena Hotel.
