Even though Arua Municipality Member of Parliament Ibrahim Abiriga is among the 200 people to receive medals on the NRM anniversary celebrations today, deep inside his heart, he is not a happy man.
During an interview with a local television station, the ‘yellow’ legislator revealed that President Yoweri Museveni ‘used and dumped’ him after executing all his duties for the well of the president and NRM as a whole.
Aggrieved Abiriga says President Museveni has refused to pick his calls for the last six months.
Abiriga who was one of the front-liners of the controversial age limit bill notes that the president promised him huge sums of money as a reward for his contribution towards the party but up to now he has never seen a penny.
He says since the passing of the age limit bill, he has tried to reach Museveni through phone calls but all in vain.
“I’m excluded in everything in the NRM party, those people who are near the president are telling him lies about me, that’s why he doesn’t pick my calls,” Abiriga grieved.
Abiriga added that he now survives on loans and borrowing to cater for his family needs and his electorate. He says people think he got a lot of money from the president to blow the trumpet for the age limit bill which is not the case.
