President Yoweri Museveni didn’t know that Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga was a good mobilizer until he was shot dead.

Abiriga and his brother Said Kongo Buga were murdered at Kawanda, Wakiso on Friday.

The MP,  former Resident District Commissioner (RDC) for Arua and Yumbe, was a staunch NRM supporter, famous for donning yellow clothes.

Yellow is the party colour for Museveni’s ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM).

Museveni said he only thought Abiriga was a loyal cadre, but would later learn that he had excellent mobilization skills.

“Hon. Abiriga was known to me as a very loyal NRM cadre,” said Museveni in a statement issued on Sunday.

“I did not know that He was such a good mobiliser. My visit to the area of Kirinyabigo and Kawanda – Kaayi yesterday, showed me how much the people loved him on account of interacting well with them and, especially, the children.”

Museveni is expected to attend Abiriga’s burial on Monday afternoon at Rhino Camp in Arua following the chaotic return of the deceased’s bodies on Sunday.
