The Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) supporters in Mitooma district were left disappointed after the party presidential candidate, Gen Mugisha Muntu failed to turn up for the campaigns.

Muntu was supposed to address his supporters at Bitooma in Katenga sub-county. However, party leaders and some supporters had to wait for most of the afternoon until 6:45 pm when they left the campaign venue disappointed.

Winnie Kiiza, the outgoing Kasese Woman MP and national campaign manager of Muntu, who was at the venue refused to comment why Muntu failed to turn up for the campaign.

Kiiza only opened the ANT party offices in Mitooma town and rallied voters to support Muntu if they want a fundamental change.

Yedidia Nyakahagura, the ANT party flag bearer for MP Bushenyi Ishaka municipality, said that the rains in Ntungamo where Muntu was, could have delayed his trip to Mitooma. 

“We were told that heavy rains in Ntungamo that started in the early afternoon before he had finished forced our party president from travelling and he had two other districts Rwampara and Mitooma, so he missed”. he said.

Today Friday, Muntu is expected to continue his campaign trail in the neighbouring districts of Rubirizi, Bushenyi, and Sheema.
