UGANDA: NRM thugs use army chopper to airlift sick official
National Resistance Movement (NRM) party on Friday employed the services of a Uganda People Defence Forces [UPDF] helicopter to airlift a sick official.
Christopher Mulenga, the Kabale District NRM party treasurer reportedly fell in a bathroom at his home in Ihimbi cell Kabale municipality.
He got fractures on the knees and ribs. He was first admitted at Muhunde Clinic in Kabale town.
A UPDF chopper was later called and the official rushed to Nakasero Hospital in Kampala.
The helicopter was requested by Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda and Minister for Planning David Bahati.
Mulenga, the Kabale District NRM party Chief Whip and Councillor representing the Northern Division, has been suffering immense stress due to failing businesses.
He owns Little Litz Gardens and Hot Loaf Bakery which, according to sources have not been doing well financially.
Mulenga, a cousin to tycoon Amos Nzeyi has reportedly done a lot for NRM but his business empire has been crumbling slowly and yet no one seems to care.
