Betty Nambooze, MP Mukono Municipality, has said what President Museveni is doing is to confuse the leader of the urban poor, a man who is a symbol for the youth, the urban poor and a full generation of people.
She was Monday morning addressing the question: “Is opposition threatened by president Museveni’s new appointments?” on NBS TV “morning breeze” programme.
According to Nambooze, Museveni is now attacking People Power Movement leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine with a mission of creating a mirror image sort of leadership.
“He wants to step aside and see Bobi Wine fight with fellow musicians.”
Nambooze told NRM deputy treasure Dr Kenneth Omona who was present o the show that the whole of Uganda today is a ghetto.
She said President Museveni has put the whole of Uganda into a ghetto.
“If you look at Kampala, President Museveni has disempowered the elected leaders of the city. Whatever is being done in the city isn’t done to better the lives of the people.”
According to her, Mark Bugembe aka Buchaman who was appointed presidential advisor on Ghetto Affairs, hasn’t come to do anything to improve the lives of the people.
“He [Buchaman] has come to destabilise different roles. It’s sad that from the presentation of Dr Omona, it seems that the NRM government has no deliberate plan to address issues in the ghetto.”
Nambooze said world over, managers are talking about ethical city management, a project that puts people first before anything else.
“This government has never come out to tell us the number of jobs they have created in the recent past. We must address crime deliberately.”
She added: “He [Museveni] is promoting Buchaman, the model of the urban poor youth, and that is what he is giving to our people. When interviewed, Buchaman said marijuana was medicine.”
