Presidential advisor for media matters, Tamale Mirundi, has once more insulted Kampala Capital City Authority [KCCA] executive director, Jennifer Musisi.
Mirundi was on Tuesday hailing the late John Ssebana Kizito who was twice a mayor of Kampala city.
Mirundi said the difference between this generation and that of Ssebana was that they were not thieves even when they had opportunities.
“The theft in KCCA is extreme,” Mirundi said while appearing on NBS TV ‘extra’ programme.
He added: “Musisi is fake. She has done nothing for Kampala.”
In March 2017, Mirundi claimed Musisi would lead to the fall of President Yoweri Museveni’s government.
“Jennifer Musisi is deceptive. Her ways may lead to the downfall of President Museveni,” Mirundi said while appearing on a local radio.
He cited Musisi’s bitter political bickerings with Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, saying these would later cost the ruling NRM governemnt.
“What bonds Lukwago and Jennifer Musisi is Kisekka market. They sold it to vendors but I hear Museveni is not happy,” Mirundi said.
He asked her to concede defeat to Kampala Minister, Beti Olive Kamya, who has ‘stolen her show’ and stop antagonising City Hall.
Now Mirundi says the generation of the Ssebaanas’ can never be gotten back, claiming that is why Museveni cannot see theft in the government.
“Like any other person, President Museveni faces pressure. He has been let down by intelligence department,” Mirundi said today morning.
Mirundi who describes himself as “a liberated man” asserts that the time to manipulate him has long gone and will thus say things the way they are.
“Mafia groups have distracted President Museveni and they are going to cause his downfall,” Mirundi repeated.
Appearing before the parliamentary committee investigating the bonus payments paid to 42 public officers recently, Musisi told the MP’s that she regretted being appointed to head the authority.
“It is not something I would have wanted to do if I had the choice. But because I love my country and wanted to make a difference, I decided to make the sacrifice.”
She added: “Had I known what this job involves at the time the president asked me to take it up, I would have declined and preferred to be self-employed.”
