Robert Mugabe Kakyebezi aka Etaara was sworn in as the first City Mayor for Mbarara as he mocked his enemies and haters who recently been plotting to put an injunction against his swearing ceremony over an allegation that him and City Clerk extorted money from councilors.
Speaking to the congregation that attended his swearing in Ceremony which held on Wednesday at Mbarara City Council offices, Kakyebezi shocked the people after revealing that there was a group of people in Mbarara who have been working on an injunction to block his swearing in.
He said that he landed on the information that some people who include some of the councilors of the former Municipal council have been influenced to put an injunction over concocted matters that him and the Town clerk failed to pay allowances for the Councilors who were stopped to have council meetings.
Among the councilors who were in the move to processing an injunction include Imam Shaf Kajiko former councilor Katete ward who lost the race on the Mbarara City South MP slot, Disan Kajubi who lost the seat for councilor of Nyabuhama ward in the recent concluded election.
“I actually I am surprised seeing members who wanted to block my swearing in Ceremony here present today”, Kakyebezi said. He pointed out Kajiko and Kajubi Disan.
On the same function, about 16 City Councilors including the City Speaker who was voted on that day Bony Tashobya Karutsya were also sworn in.
Tashobya bounced back as the City Speaker Mbarara City after beating Eunice Asiimwe with 9-7 votes out of 16 casted votes by Councilors.
