Former Vice President Professor Gilbert Balibaseka Bukenya has come out to expose Social Democratic Party leader Mike Mabikke’s political secrets.
While appearing CBS Nze nga bwendaba” program, Bukenya who previously worked with former Makindye member of parliament warned People Power Movement boss Robert Kyagulanyi against working with the likes of Mabikke warning that Bobi Wine will live to regret his decision to politically associate with any political formation to which Mike Mabikke is a party.
“Bobi Wine has no future or hope to make any progress as long as he works with such people. He doesn’t have to rush. He can wait and build his own thing if he can rather than allying with such people,” said the veteran politician who closely worked with Mabikke and Lubowa in the run up to 2016 general elections.
He advised Bobi Wine to be careful in every political steps he is making warning that wrong decision will ruin his political future.
“Those (Mabikke and company) are political failures. And Kyagulanyi should get a team of new faces because these guys have been failing many times. They are just wasting people’s time and people should shun them. They should first put their house in order. They are double-faced ever saying one thing and doing totally the opposite. They don’t practice what they preach,” Bukenya warned.
Bukenya further revealed that Mabikke tried to use him to negotiate for government job from the ruling National Resistance Movement government.
“It was a very painful experience and that’s why I can’t be in those political things of opposing the government anymore because those guys did many nasty things to me. They appeared to surrender SDP to me yet at the same time they were dealing with Sejusa behind my back. They are very dishonest actors and not the kind this country needs,” says Bukenya who also condemns DP Bloc promoters for priotizing attacking Besigye who is their fellow opposition leader.
He added that DP bloc is dead on arrival and it is the reason they resorted on attacking Besigye in order to capture media attention.
“Why should they fight Kizza Besigye, a man who enjoys being a Presidential Candidate? They should build their own thing and sell it to the people,” says Bukenya who also predicts the DP Bloc will dramatically collapse sooner than many people think.
On claims that he was a mole planted by President Museveni to spy on the opposition and more so the TDA process, Bukenya says that can’t be true.
“Let them not deceive you that I was the problem. Why did they not carry on with their TDA after I had left? Why did they not succeed after Bukenya the mole had left TDA? Is there anyone who doesn’t know how that thing failed because of the cliquism and the scheming those people were practicing? I sat with them many times in those TDA meetings and I can tell you they are just duping people and can’t add anything to Kyagulanyi,” says Bukenya who is said to have parted with Shs300m to be permitted participation in TDA meetings as the representative of SDP party.
