The Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) party is losing support in Samia Bugwe north constituency in Busia district.

The party members said this while electing the interim committee at Angels Hotel in Busia town on Tuesday.

They blamed the weakening support and disunity on information and communication technology minister, Aggrey Awori.

Geoffrey Mbulu, an adviser to the party, said Awori was using gifts and closely working with the party leaders in the constituency despite that fact that he defected to the ruling NRM party.

“Let Awori’s departure not divide us. We can do without him because no one is indispensable in UPC,” said Mbulu, a former supporter of Awori.

He appealed to the party supporters not to disunite because of the small money they were getting from Awori.

He explained that the small things Awori was doing to maintain his relationship with UPC supporters should have been done in the past.
“We missed many things because of him. He is even supposed to do more, not just this radio station that he is using to divide you,” Mbulu said.

He added that he was personally lured with sh40m to quit the party but he rejected it.

Gideon Ojambo the chairperson UPC Samia Bugwe south, cautioned the party supporters against being swayed to Awori’s influence, saying the party’s problems were linked to him.

Recently, George Kikomeko, the district party chairperson, and his executive committee members, resigned after being accused of closely working with Awori.
