The Youth MP for Western Uganda was appearing on 'The Spot' a program on NTV that is hosted by news anchor Maurice Mugisha and revealed that his life was in danger. The youthful MP and four others had some information before them that was presented to the house on allegations of top officials receiving bribes from Tullow Oil.
A clip of the Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Kuteesa and MP Gerald Karuhanga exchanging on the authenticity of the documents presented was shown with Gerald insisting that he will stand by them even outside the house.
One of the documents was a photocopy of a bank statement which had no stamp. During the news conference in which the President held on Wednesday at Nakasero State House he termed all those documents forged.
The President actually said that he was the first one to receive those documents and very quickly forwarded them to Malta, London among others for scrutiny only to turn out that they were forged documents.
The President later said that they will investigate the origin of those documents. Maurice was then forced to ask the Youth MP on what was driving him to do all this and Gerald talked of how they recently visited Mulago Hospital and discovered that over 60 premature babies were sharing one incubator and yet the cost of an incubator is Shs 2.5million.
That is one of the many reasons they feel they should serve the people who elected them. MP Gerald Karuhanga has now beefed up his security after a tip off from three people he termed respectable told him that his life could be in danger. The Minister's who are implicated in this have stepped aside but not resigned to allow investigations in the matter.
