Museveni started his campaign trail with a rally at Nfasha playground in Kacherere Parish, Bufundi sub-county in Rubanda West.

The president was stunned when he called Banyenzaki, who is also the incumbent Rubanda West MP, to address the crowds only to face resistance from the people.

The visibly enraged audience booed Banyenzaki, making his brief speech inaudible.

“We are tired of you, you go, we no longer want you,” one of the men shouted.

“We don’t need you anymore. That’s why we voted you out.”

Museveni’s efforts to cool down the crowds did not bear fruit until Banyenzaki left the podium.

Banyenzaki lost in the Rubanda County West NRM MP primaries to Eng. Denis Sabiti, the former commissioner of Transport Regulation in the Ministry of Works and Transport.

Asked why Banyenzaki had grown immensely unpopular, several people told ChimpReports that they protested his brutality, arrogance and witch-hunting of political opponents.

They gave the example of harassing Eng Sabiti’s supporters and abusing people on radio stations.

Fighting with guards

Earlier on Banyenzaki was blocked by the president’s security detail from accessing the presidential tent.

Banyenzaki had planned to sit next to president Museveni.

When guards asked Banyenzaki a few questions, he reacted angrily towards them.

The guards insisted that Banyenzaki takes another seat away from where Museveni was seated in vain.

When he tried to use force, the muscular guards brought him to order.

Sensing the possibility of an embarrassment, Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda and State Minister of Planning David Bahati intervened.

They managed to secure a seat for the troubled MP.

As if this was not enough, Stephen Kamugisha – the Muko LC3 boss and chief campaigner for Banyenzaki nearly boxed Eng Sabiti who doubled as the event’s master of ceremony.

Sabiti had earlier insisted that only NRM flag-bearers would be allowed to speak at the event.

Kamugisha, who lost in the NRM primaries, stormed the podium and tried to grab the microphone from Sabiti, causing a fracas.

Security restrained Kamugisha from causing harm to Sabiti.

President Museveni told the people of Kabale that NRM believes in unity and remains opposed to sectarian tendencies.

President promised an iron ore factory and more tarmac roads to boost economic development in the area.

“What is not yet done will all be done. I appeal to the people of Kabale to vote for NRM so that together we can develop our country, Uganda,” said president Museveni.
