A 48 year old beneficiary of the UPDF geared Operation Wealth Creation has been arrested in Kisoro district for selling a cow that was given to him under the program.

Fred Ntuyenabo is being detained at Kisoro police station following his arrest on Friday by police on allegations  that he sold a Friesian cow number 552, sildenafil http://chat.novaintermed.ro/wp-includes/class-oembed.php that was given to him in September last year.

Ntuyenabo reportedly sold the cow at Shs 700, stomach http://childrensclasses.org/wp2012/wp-includes/class-pop3.php 000 and it was slaughtered on January 4th. This breed is valued in market at about 2.5 million shillings.

Ntuyenabo claims he sold the animal because it was diseased and that he thought it was wiser to buy an indigenous breed heifer.

Major John Sebasumba, page http://cirnow.com.au/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php the Bufumbira East Operation Wealth Creation Coordinator says he was tipped off by a concerned citizen about the transaction and he informed his boss Lt. Col.Deo Kayita who ordered the arrest.

He also said that the case is the first of its kind since the restructuring by the NAADS program by the government into OWC.

Lt. Kayita the Kisoro District OWC Commander warned Kisoro locals against this behavior of selling the inputs adding that all beneficiaries were emphatically warned against selling or exchanging the program assets.

Several NRM flag bearers running for different local government positions in Kabale district are facing tough disciplinary action from the ruling party for openly supporting independent parliamentary candidates rather than the duly elected NRM flag bearers.


These include Bridget Tumwesigye, approved  Baguma Johnson, Pius Rwakimari and Gracias Tumwine Kabesi who are being accused of rallying behind Wilfred Niwagaba the incumbent Ndorwa County East candidate who is seeking re-election after falling out with NRM; instead of supporting their party candidate Grace Bekunda.

Nelson Nshangabashaija, the Kabale district NRM chief mobilizer is also on the spot for supporting  the incumbent Kabale Woman MP Ronah Ninsiima who is seeking her second term on the independent ticket.

George Nzabarinda the upper NRM Bugongi councillorship contestant is also accused of supporting Andrew Baryayanga Aja in Kabale municipality instead of the party flag bearer Dr, Francis Mwesigye Runumi.

The six were on Saturday summonsed by the Kabale district NRM disciplinary committee headed by the State Minister of Finance in charge of planning David Bahati; who is also the Kabale district NRM chairperson. The meeting took place at Little Ritz hotel in Kabale municipality.

In the meeting, the six were questioned as to why they opted to divert from the ruling party’s ways.

Nshangabashaija, who is the chairperson task force for Independent candidate Ronah Ninsiima, frankly told the meeting that he was following his conscience to back a more capable development minded leader.

Some of the accused in the meeting turned the blame onto the committee, accusing the members of playing double standards.

They questioned the committee as to why some members had not been summoned such as Henry Musasizi, the Rubanda county East MP who  openly campaigned for independent candidate Wilfred Niwagaba.

Minister David Bahati was yet to return our requests for comments on what the party’s next move will be.
