 Mbarara: Robert Mugabe Kakyebezi aka Etaara, the Mayor Mbarara municipality, is  in trouble after being sued over defamatory statements he allegedly made against the vice National Resistance Movement (NRM) chairperson Mbarara district Herbert Kamugisha.

Kamugisha filed a defamatory case at Mbarara central police station against the mayor, claiming that he (Kakyebezi ) was behind the cropped photo of Kamugisha and Bishop of Ankole diocese Fred Sheldon Mwesigwa which is making rounds on social media portraying him as the Anglican political candidate.

Kamugisha, who is also the head of laity Ankole Diocese, said that “I got information that there was a planned move led by Kakyebezi to disseminate the photos at the Mosques and Catholic Churches in Mbarara with an intention to promote sectarianism among religions in Mbarara municipality as the country is heading into elections.” However,  Kakyebezi disassociated himself from the group behind the photo saying that, “The people behind it are intended to create a rift between me and my friend Kamugisha, I can’t do such a thing!” But a one Herbert  Nangumya claims that he received Shs620,000 from Kakyebezi to help in circulating the said photo but he refused doing so, noting that as a youth he could not allow what he termed as evil leaders.
