Earlier, This Website published a story where Tumwebaze was requesting the president to settle the pledge of over Shs850m which he borrowed from money lenders to help him win the 2016 By Election.
As it reads,
Re: REMINDER ON PLEDGE TO PROVIDE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Allow me to thank you so much for recently giving audience to the delegation from the Russian Federation, myself and staff from the Ministry of Science and Technology.As a follow up, the technical team and myself will travel to Moscow next week.
Permit me also to thank you for reaffirming the pledge to help me financially on the personal discussions you kindly allowed me to have with you on the same day, after concluding the discussion with the above mentioned Russian delegation.
You reaffirmed the pledge to help me settle the debts that accrued from last year’s successful election of MP Sheema Municipality.
Your Excellency as I informed you then as I had been doing so through many letters of request since September 2018, I borrowed money from Money Lenders and a SACCO and now am under pressure to pay the accumulated principal, interest and now totaling to Eight hundred and fifty million Shillings (UGX 850m).
Any payment can be credited to my Stanbic Bank Account Nakasero branch, Account Number 9030006031454.
I can also provide details of creditors as appropriate.Your Excellency, I shall forever be grateful for your timely rescue. “
Bobi Wine Via his Twitter handle @HEBobiwine thus said, “A minister borrows 850m to run his MP campaign (normally to bribe voters, buy off opponent’s agents, etx) and then expects the tax payers to pay the debt! We are fighting to end this shameful misuse of power, corruption in high offices and the wastage of public resources.” https://t.co/iobxDQFSFC
