FACE Industries Ltd boss Faruq Ntege, young brother to former Kampala Mayor Alhaj Nasser Ntege Ssebaggala ‘Seya’ has been arrested and detained at Katwe Police Station on allegations of disobeying presidential directives.
Haji Faruq is eyeing Makindye West MP seat occupied by Democratic Party’s Allan Ssewanyana commonly known as ‘Bwino”.
He was arrested on Wednesday evening at Muganzirwazza in the constituency alongside members of his camp who included councilors Karim Lukoda and Konde, while holding a meeting.
On his arrest, Haji Faruq the Makindye West People Power’s favourite was whisked away to Nateete police Station where he was dumped only to be picked from there and taken to Katwe Police Station today (Thursday) afternoon.
According to Yanga Bbosa, Haji Ntege’s blue eyed boy, he was accused of disobeying presidential directives against political gatherings during Covid-19 lockdown.
“This was just an excuse, Haji Faruq was in a meeting with his team and they were observing social distancing. It is as if police want to tell us that meetings be it of three people were banned.” Said Yanga Bbosa vowing that, this won’t in any way stop Faruq Ntege from carrying out consultations ahead of 2021 Scientific General elections.
Money magnet Ntege is expected to give Hon. Sewanyana a run for his money in an election whose winner the Makindye West political analysts say, is still hard to predict.
Sewanyana must quickly revise his notes, go back to the drawing board and reorganise his foot soldiers otherwise, Haji Faruq will easily uproot him from Makindye West.
