Busiro East Member of Parliament, Hon Medard Ssegona, has criticised President Yoweri Museveni for reportedly moving around the country teaching about land laws yet he doesn’t know the law.
“He is not authoritative enough to explain the law…,” the East African Legislative Assembly [EALA] member told NBS television in an interview.
“I have always respected the president for knowing many things apart from the law. I read one of his books where he studied law for only one day,” Ssegona recalled.
The Democratic Party [DP] politician said he even disputes the claim that Museveni stepped in a law class because he knows Museveni has no admission to a law school.
“A person who runs out of class after one day is not authoritative enough to explain the law.”
He added: “My understanding is that you can only teach what you know. The president does not know law.”
According to Ssegona, Museveni can move around and explain what he understands as a president as long as he doesn’t stop others.
“There is a ministry responsible for land and that for justice and constitutional affairs. He killed those ministries. If the ministries have failed, then he has also failed.”
He added: “This confirms his [Museveni] incompetence. We have an incompetent president. He is just moving around wasting time.”

Ssegona claimed people are just meeting the president for his handouts but have nothing to learn from him.
Uganda is dead?
Speaking earlier on NBS “Eagle” programme, radio personality Mivule Basajja, said everything in Uganda shows the country is a dead one.
“We just lack the person to read the death announcement. I have been telling you that this country died long time ago. Now I see you shuddering.”
Mivule was commenting on Museveni’s silence at the peak of Wakiso murders and Internal Affairs minister, Gen Jeje Odongo’s claim that the murders were a result of witchcraft.
“If Minister Jeje Odongo says these murders are ritualistic, then the patron of witches, Museveni, should do something,” he pointed out.
Mivule maintained that the fountain of honour is the head of witches in Uganda. “He is their patron. The delay to understand what is killing people is bad and it worries the country.”
Sembabule district NRM youth league leader, David Kabanda, said it wasn’t new for a minister to talk about witchcraft.
“The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga went a cave to thank ancestors after re-election,” Kabanda recalled.
