“You see these people in NUP must appreciate Museveni and NRM for respecting democracy. Where in the world can an opposition politician defeat a minister? Don’t you think we have to appreciate our NRM democracy?,” she said adding, “If we were not democratic, the judges in our courts would not have allowed your MP (Bagala) to defeat a Minister (Nabakooba).”
Upon finishing her speech, Nabbanja donated UGX 10m to support the construction of the church while Minister Judith Nabakooba who was present also donated UGX 2m.
Over 120million shillings was realized in cash an pledges during the fundraising drive that was attended by a cross section of MPs, Local, Religious and opinion leaders.
