DAILY FILE – A disgruntled politician who suffered a defeat in Uganda’s parliamentary elections has reacted by removing boreholes he commissioned while in office.
The boreholes have been a major source of water supply for residents in Nebbi Municipality, a district in northern Uganda, for over two decades, local media reported.
Patrick Okumu-Ringa was reported to have dismantled around 10 boreholes earlier in the week and told locals to find another source of water.
The politician told Uganda’s New Vision he believed locals abused “his generosity” and refused to support his bid for a re-election.
“Our people are not appreciative. All I wanted from them was votes”
