    A number of restaurants in Wandegeya, a suburb in Kampala have threatened to arrest former Kawempe South Member of Parliament Mubarak Munyagwa for failure to pay Ugx 11 million food arrears.Munyagwa, until 2021 May was the MP for Kawempe South. He was replaced by Hajji Bashir Kazibwe. However, in the run up to the January 14th elections, Munyagwa used to send his supporters and campaign agents to restaurants such as Dreams Restaurant but failed to pay.

    The former MP was a regular client at the restaurant until when the meals/food arrears reached Ugx 11 million and decided to runaway without paying.

    “Even when I call him to pay, his phone never goes through. He seems to have blacklisted me,” Resty Namubiru, the Dreams Restaurant owner told this news site.At one point, Namubiru opted to report the case to police. However, Munyagwa has also not appeared at Wandegeya Police to record a statement.

    Also, the restaurant owner opted to arrest Munyagwa herself when he appeared on a show on NBS, “however, he refused to get out to the studio because he was told we wanted to arrest him,” she says.

    Namubiru is not the only restaurant in Wandegeya where Munyagwa demanded food bills. Several other restaurant owners who asked not to be named told Entebbe Post that Munyagwa has refused to pay them more than Ugx 7 million.

    “We are now getting used to his character. He no longer features yet he was a regular client. This is only because he refused to pay.” A restaurant owner who asked not to be named told this website.

    Other restaurant owners say, they gave up on demanding him because, since he lost the election, he seems to have lost a lot of money and “seems to have run bankrupt.”
