Events Promoter Balaam Barugahara has dismissed claims that he was kicked out of Soroti State Lodge by Special Forces Command (SFC).
Since Monday, rumours have been making round on social media that the NRM power broker along with with Bukooli County MP Solomon Silwany were bounced at the State Lodge by President Yoweri Museveni’s elite forces. It was alleged that the duo was sent packing because they were not on the appointment list to see the president.
However, responding to the allegations, Balaam said the stories against him were not true and he termed them as fake.
He says, he spent the entire Monday in Kumi district mobilizing support for President Museveni and that Ho Silwany was also in his constituency busy with his campaigns.
“DISREGARD FAKE STORIES circulating on social media of Balaam being kicked out of state Lodge soroti along side Hon Solomon a Parliamentary commissioner . This is not true at all . I have not been to State lodge soroti I spent my entire day in Kumi district mobilizing for President Museveni. I even attended the last Campaign Meeting of Our Party Chairman . HON Solomon his in his Constituency Bukooli central busy with his campaigns,” Balaam said in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
“I know the rules of visiting State lodge or State house clearly well . The PPS is solely responsible for fixing and confirming appointments i can’t go there if am not on the PPS list . So the Sfc officers are highly professional service men & Women who can never harass anyone. So dear friends lets focus on hunting for Nrm Votes disregard the paid Fake news aimed at diverting attention . The time now is for vote hunting not visiting Mzee to take Tea . Thank you every one who got concerned from the force , State house and general Public . The Struggle is on we should not be diverted by Negative Fake Online Media agencies and the Hate funders.”
