SECOND deputy premier and Minister for Public Service, Henry Kajura, on Saturday held a party to celebrate his reappointment to Cabinet, where his adversaries apologised and called for reconciliation.
Hoima LC5 chairman George Tinkamanyire, who recently criticised President Yoweri museveni for returning Kajura, said, â€œlet us put the past behind us.â€
Bugahya MP William Rwembera, who defeated Kajura in the NRM primaries to take the ministerâ€™s parliamentary seat, apologised to Bunyoro, saying, â€œWe have all wronged.â€
â€œMy appeal to the people of Hoima and you minister is that unity is strength. We should work for that. Those weaknesses should not continue,â€ tinkamanyire stated.
â€œIn our culture, when something happens two times, you say, â€˜Baitu ebyo orabisibira?â€™ (will you eat rumours for lunch; canâ€™t you go and work?). Today I tell you all, fighting each other is over. God bless you,â€ Tinkamanyire said before shaking Kajuraâ€™s hand.
Rwebembera urged Hoima leaders to seize the olive branch and reconcile â€œbecause the fish rots from the head.â€ He said Hoima had had its fair share of bickering and needed a new chapter.
