While appearing on the Biggest Prime show of 89 Smart FM dubbed Reference point (8th Feb, 2022) hosted by Sir Grace Mwesigwa, Mayuge RDC Gulume expressed his dismay of having not seen Hon members of Parliament from the opposition side especially those from Jinja City on the funeral of the former General Secretary of NRM metropolitan Jinja.
The MPs in question include Hon Manjeri kyebakutwika (NUP), Hon David Agha Isabirye (FDC) & Hon Timothy Batuwa (FDC). Mr Richard Gulume termed the act as a sucidal and defined it as uncivilized politics. Kato was a leader in Jinja and truth be told his contributions towards development of the Area can’t be understimated, boycotting his burial because of him being NRM is not right, Gulume asserted.
Mr. Gulume applauded opposition leaders who attended Kato’s last send off as he termed them liberal minded. These leaders included Mr Maganda C/man FDC Jinja, Mr Meddy Mbentyo, Mr. Ofwono Wycliffe of UPC among others.Gulume thanked Honourable Igeme Nabeta for being a true friend to late Kaziba and being a leader with visible fruits. In the same vain he thanked NRM party members for showing solidarity in times of joy and Sorrow. May Kato Kaziba’s Soul Rest in perfect peace he said.
