The chairperson of Mbarara Network of Farmers’ Voice,Robert Kabatereine has accused Mbarara municipality Member of Parliament (MP) Tusiime Micheal for using his capacity to sabotage their activities.

Without giving any financial contribution for development of their farmers SACCO, minister Kabatsi assured them of government support,especially president Museveni.
According to the Network chair Kabatereine, Hon Tusiime influenced some state house officials to hamper farmers access to the President.
Hon Tusiime couldn’t be reached for a comment because the ‘SFC-guarded’ legislator’s known phone numbers were not reached.
