Former Kyotera Member of Parliament and Minister of State for Micro Finance Kyeyune Haruna Kasolo has left several of the residents in Bukoto Central mesmerized and gratified with Christmas gifts offered to the different people who engaged and played in the Kasolo Christmas Cup.
The tournament is one of the activities introducing the Minister into a nee constituency, Bukoto Central. He is expected to contest against Eng. Richard Ssebamala who took over from former Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi in 2021.
The tournament saw Kakunyu FC from Kabonera win and Zimmwe FC from Kyanamukaaka. The tournament also saw people engage in a cycling race.
The best team was offered Ugx 10 million by the Minister while the runners up (second position) was offered Ugx 5 million. The best in the cyclist competition was also offered a Bajaj Boxer motor bike.
Also, the winners and runners up in the Netball competition was offered gifts, from the first to the fourth runners up.
Other gifts included four cows, Television sets, Solar Panels, hard cash among other gifts. Other games played included Ludo and a contest to carry jericans of water.
The Minister, known for his generosity in Kyotera decided to set ground and contest in Bukoto Central just after being trounced in a hotly contested Kyotera county election in 2021. He lost to John Paul Mpalanyi a member of the opposition Democratic Party.
Remembered for his Kasolo foundation, Kasolo engaged several communities in the outskirts of the constituency in Kyotera to engage in savings, skillings and human capital development a trait many of the people within the country adored.
It remains unclear why he lost the seat to Mpalanyi however, several pundits within the area attributed the lost to infighting and violence that marred the Kyotera election.
His change of plans from Kyotera to Bukoto Central has been met with gratitude amongst the NRM leaders and supporters within Bukoto Central saying, he would perfectly replace former Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi who retired from active Politics.
He has so far distributed several motor cycles and other freebies to the people within Bukoto to engage in further political mobilization within the area.
