Capitain Mike Mikula, the the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Vice Chairperson in Eastern Region faced a rough time on Saturday after he was booed by Busitema University students as he tried to sell them the ruling party’s ideology.
Several students within the audience were heard heard chanting ‘People Power Our Power’ as furious Capt Mukula tried cautioned the young people against engaging in actions that threaten the country’s peace and stability.
It all started when Capt Mukula Mikula said that it is costly to try the ideas of testing leaders and Ugandans should not risk returning to the past.
He made the remark while addressing the Inter Institutional Association of University Catholic Community.
He said whereas the choice of governance lies in the hands of the young people, this does not mean gambling with the future of the country.
Mikula who also served as minister of health in NRM government added that Uganda is not a laboratory where a leader is put into leadership to test his or her ability to lead.
However, this did not go down well with sections of students, who interpreted this as attack of Kyadondo East member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who declared his interest to contest against President Museveni.
He said so long as the country was on a correct path, they would not allow it to degenerate to chaos and instability.
Capt. Mukula’s caution followed booing that he received from the students as he was trying to give the country’s background right from the time it got independence.
