The National Unity Platform party leadership has dismissed earlier reports claiming that Butambala County MP Muwanga Kivumbi got an accident.
Earlier reports making rounds on social media had suggested that Muwanga Kivumbi who is also the Chairman of Buganda Parliamentary Caucus was involved in a motor accident at Kammengo on Kampala- Masaka Highway.
Reports further suggested that outspoken government critic sustained injuries and is apparently being treated in a local hospital in Mpigi.
However, in a turn of events, the NUP secretary general David Lewis Rubongoya took to his social media to make clarifications that their MP has not been involved in an accident as per the earlier social media reports.
“Just spoken with Hon. Muwanga Kivumbi. He is well. Ignore the false news claiming he’s been involved in an accident. It’s not true,” Rubongoya tweeted to dispel the fake reports.
NUP supporters believe that perhaps this rumour could have been initiated by NRM social media propagandists whose motives are yet to be known.
