Mukono municipality Member of Parliament and People Government spokesperson Hon Betty Nambooze Bakireke has attacked for National Resistance Movement Secretary General and TDA Presidential Candidate Rt. Hon Amama Mbabazi for attacking 4 time presidential aspirant and former Forum For Democratic Change (FDC) president, Dr Kizza Besigye.
Nambooze said that Besigye has become a punching bag for everyone who want to grab media attention adding Amama did not do enough to liberate Uganda.
In a post on her Facebook page, Nambooze said, “Everyone will attack Besigye…Now the leader of The Movement for Silent and inactive politicians jumps into action. He had no opinion about Kasese murders, and Lubowa hospital,Ssebulime and other people’s murder,the revival of Uganda airline,the invading of Parliament,the Mbale Constitutional case, the Uganda-Rwanda conflict, Museveni’s sole candidature….The only function he has organised since 2016 was for marrying off his daughter and he invited not Besigye or Bobi Wine but Museveni….This great politician/ liberator has now came out to blame Besigye for refusing to hand over the opposition to him!”
The Mukono legislator was responding to a comment allegedly from Amama, who attacked Besigye saying, “The problem is Dr. Kizza Besigye doesn’t believe in unity. And if its unity he always wants to be the main man to be the flag bearer. He has to learn to accept that things have changed now.”
