BUDIOPE ELECTORS GET FREE PAY TV ACCESS AS MAGOGO DIGS DEEPER
By Mulengera Reporters
Eng Moses Magogo, who is aspiring to become MP for Budiope East in Buyende district, has continued using his coordinators to woo over potential voters for 2021 by doing for them things his archrival Geoffrey Dhamuzungu (the incumbent) can only fantasize about. As Muslims continue preparing to celebrate Eid in the midst of the COVID19-inflicted economic challenges, Magogo’s coordinators (led by Prossy Mwanjuzi) have this weekend erected a tent in a residence in Luzira where financially-challenged sons and daughters of Budiope living and working in Kampala have been picking goodies to go through the weekend.
Buyende district, of which Budiope is part, is home to many low income earners who survive in Kampala by way of being taxi drivers and boda riders or even car washers. These fall exactly under the category that has been worst hit by the lockdown Gen Museveni imposed on the whole country. Some work in factories and the financially vulnerable Badiope in Kampala number several hundreds. The Magogo goodies received this weekend ahead of Eid have comprised of Matooke, sugar, salt, rice, beans, cooking oil and even maize flour. This follows up on another set of goodies some of the Badiope received earlier resulting from a joint fundraising drive to which the different Badiope leaders resident in Kampala contributed to support their own working and living in Kampala but are now hard up because of the lockdown.
Late last year, Magogo initiated the idea of bringing Badiope together to get to know each other and have some fan. The event was held at Hotel Grand Global in Kikoni Makerere where many influential Budiope leaders, including woman MP Veronica Kadogo, joined Magogo to have fan with their less privileged brothers and sisters from Budiope land. At the Kikoni party, held shortly before Christmas, there was enough for everyone to eat and drink (all courtesy of Magogo’s generosity).
Away from all these interventions, Magogo has also invested in ensuring his people in Budiope trading centers freely access and watch DSTV entertainment whereby huge flat screens have been erected in all trading centers to enable the community members to watch football and other news/entertainment programs available on both local and international channels. Magogo is the one meeting the cost for both power and monthly subscription. Yet that isn’t all. Those who wish to access entertainment through video halls are free to do so in all Budiope East’s trading centers and all this is courtesy of Eng Magogo’s huge purse. The FUFA president also intends to carry on with his habit of bringing musicians to entertain people in Budiope East (once the lockdown restrictions get wholly lifted).
