Kibuule supported a lot Mutebi current Member of Parliament to oust Lulume since then Kibuule embarked his efforts to evict bibanja holders and no single voice came out from Mutebi to negotiate for the poor people who are being terrorized by that minister.

Before completing compensating all residents at that time Kibuule used security officers and evicted residents forcefully which Lulume opposed.
