Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda on Sunday urged Rukiga MP Jack Sabiiti to return to the ruling National Resistance Movement from the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).
Rugunda spoke at a fundraising function for Kamwezi Catholic church in Rukiga county, Kabale district, hailing Sabiiti as a development-minded and effective MP.
“There is a step which Hon Sabiiti needs to take – to come back to the party that is supported overwhelmingly by the majority of the people of Rukiga county, NRM,” Rugunda said, to deafening applause.
Sabiiti replied that he was happy to remain in FDC, but thanked Rugunda for uniting people across party lines. At least Shs 40m was raised.
