Mp Kangwagye was elected in 2003 after winning a byelection between him and Nathan Byanyima the former Bukanga Legislator. This after the death of one Gregory who was the area MP then.
During a press briefing, Kamurari blasted Kangwagye for supporting Tanzanian people in the recent invasion where some people from Tanzania came and encroached Ugandans at the border of Isingiro and Tanzania with an intention to overtake their lands, “we used our forces and those people who had encroached our lands ran away and escaped” Kamurari said.
