The action is being pursued by Kabale district administrativeviagra order http://cippico.com/wp/wp-includes/class-wp-oembed-controller.php geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”> secretary, pharm Amos Rwansheija, who accuses members of defying party guidelines.

Those facing disciplinary action include Johnson Baguma, the Buhara sub county district councillor, Alex Owamani, the Kabale district Youth councillor and the district female youth councillor, Adrine Tumukunde.

The accused were among the 23 NRM leaders from Ndorwa East who rejected the proposal of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s sole candidature in the 2016 when the East African affairs Minister, Shem Bageine Bajura, invited them at White Horse Inn Kabale.

MP Niwagaba was expelled for acting against Rule 4 of the party constitution which prohibits the use of bad language and wilfully spreading of malicious propaganda alongside Theodore Ssekikubo (Lwemiyaga), Muhammad Nsereko (Kampala Central), and Barnabas Tinkasiimire (Buyaga West).

The three district councillors who come from the same constituency with Niwagaba have rallied behind him to the detriment of other party executives in Kabale district council.


The district party Administrative secretary Rwansheija warned that the party will not tolerate members who will act contrary to the party guidelines.

He added that their conduct has worsened the ground for the party in the district as they claim to be liberal.

Councillors, when contacted, accused the office of the party administrative secretary for causing confusion within the NRM.

Tumukunde, who is also the district female Youth councillor, said that her support for the embattled lawmaker is based on the fact that court is yet to pronounce itself on the matter.

She, however, faults the party central executive committee for taking a decision against an MP without consulting his constituents.

Alex Owamani said members have no way of distancing themselves from Niwagaba because he remains the area MP who is voted by the electorates not the party.

“The Party leadership here needs to focus on reuniting the members than splitting the members,” he added.
