The incumbent Bufumbira South Member of Parliament in Kisoro District, Sam Kwizera Bitangaro has been arrested by police for flouting Covid-19 measures by addressing large crowd of his supporters.
Bitangaro is the latest NRM MP that has held a campaign rally despite warnings from President Yoweri Museveni and the Health ministry.
On Wednesday, the MP was filmed in a clip that has since gone viral on social media, addressing a big rally in Kisoro District.
Elly Maate, the Kigezi Regional Police Spokesman says the Mp was picked yesterday Friday and detained at Kisoro Police Station.
However, some of the residents of Kisoro have decried selective application of the law. They say several ministers have been seen holding big rallies and processions but have not been arrested.
