Ugandan politician destroys boreholes after losing election
A former Ugandan minister, who lost in a recent Parliamentary election, has dismantled all the boreholes he had sunk that have been supplying water to Nebbi Municipality residents for the past two decades.
The former minister accused Nebbi Municipality constituents of abusing his generosity by not supporting his bid for MP. The process of dismantling the boreholes started on Monday and was concluded on Wednesday, three days after the election results were announced.
“I am hurt, but I will reconcile with them. However, for now, let them look for water elsewhere.Our people are not appreciative. All I wanted from them was votes. I have educated so many children, but all they tell me is I have done nothing.”
Asked whether he was hurting the Government he once served, Okumu-Ringa said the Government should instead pay him for supplying free water to citizens.Also checkout: Mr Eazi gives back to his community
“I don’t think the Government should be offended. I used my money to sink the boreholes, and in any case, even National Water and Sewerage Corporation doesn’t supply free water,” he said.
