The unprecedented defection happened after Museveni addressed a rally at Karambi grounds.

“Primarily, I was in Kasese to remind the residents about NRM’s formula of improving household income. You must differentiate between development (roads, electricity etc) and wealth (individual income). The government will bring you development but you must work for your wealth,” Museveni said.

He added, “I thank the people of Kasese for the warm reception, the area NRM leaders for organizing the activities and the area MP, Hon Godfrey Katusabe of the FDC, for supporting them. I am glad we had a successful bi-partisan gathering.”
