Pastor Mondo Mugisha gifts Presidential candidate John Katumba a campaign vehicle

City pastor Franklin Mondo Mugisha has offered a vehicle to aid the movement of independent presidential candidate John Katumba as he traverses the country to woo voters.

It comes a few days after Uganda’s youngest presidential candidate started complaining that he lacks a vehicle to use for his countrywide campaign tours.

The 24-year-old pleaded with the Electoral Commission to allow him to use the truck provided for his security detail in vain.

While speaking to reporters recently, Katumba said he was considering using boda bodas and taxis for his movements should he fail to secure a vehicle.

However, Mondo of Empowerment Christian Prayer Center International offered Katumba a Super Custom van, saying that Katumba is his spiritual son, who he doesn’t want to see lamenting over something he could easily offer.

Before the October 2015 amendments of the Presidential Elections Act, Electoral Commission would provide each presidential candidate with Shs 100 million (in-kind), an official car, and double-cabin truck for their security detail.

However, the provision was scrapped on account of locking out ‘jokers’ from the presidential contest. This time around, the candidates were only given a double-cabin truck for their security detail.
