Ruranga is not first, last to crisscross

The NRM party and President Museveni have always been castigated for intolerance and harshly dealing with defectors eg the ‘Rebel MPs’. The actual purpose in Maj Rubaramira Ruranga’s migration may not have anything to do with intolerance in his former marriage but, as it is the practice in the neighborhood, he wasn’t seen off well.
I refer to the way he was condemned and ridiculed by the opposition fraternity, save for a few a humorous remarks like those of Namboze, “we will miss you.” I asked myself, what if they had seen him off positively, for example, with a dinner to recognise him for his input, wish him well and pledge to receive him back, be it halfheartedly.
I have a feeling he would be coming back soon since he is not the first to crisscross between parties and I doubt he will be received wholly where he has gone.
