#M7Trek: Full Figure grabs Museveni, sticks on him like glue

Full Figure flashes and NRM thumps up while hugging the president

Musician Jennifer Nakanguubi aka Full Figure has left trekkers at a loss when she grabbed President Museveni and stuck on him like glue.

The incident happened Saturday afternoon at Kyabumba in Masulita sub county Wakiso district.

Museveni is on 100km trek dubbed Africa Yetu to Kibaale district across seven districts of Uganda to honour NRA bush war heroes.

Having set off from Galamba secondary school in Wakiso, Museveni and his trekkers including Bazzukulu and veterans made their first halt at Masulita.

Full Figure had even camped at Galamba school together with thousands other compatriots ahead of the walk.

As the president posed to catch his breath under the harsh January sun, Full Figure sighted the opportunity and took it without hesitation.

A do or die?

The singer who was on Boxing Day stoned at Nabugabo beach in Masaka district along with Catherine Kusasira, jumped and grabbed the president’s waist.

She then flashed a thumbs up sign for the ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM] and smiled for the camera as she stuck on the old man.  

Other musicians who joined the walk include; Ragga Dee (Daniel Kazibwe), Hassan Ndugga and DJ Michael (Michael Mugwanya).

DJ Michael told New Vision his late father was a bush war veteran, who appealed to him before his death to love President Museveni.

The musician’s father, Charles Katumba, was a great admirer of Museveni, the reason he (DJ Michael) has supported NRM for the last 15 years.

He said that he had severally tried but failed to meet the President to remind him of his father and the secrets he left him with.

Ndugga, meanwhile, said he decided to abandon the People Power movement because he said they had started reportedly harassing artistes who did not support their leader, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

Physically fit?

New Vision journalist Eddie Ssejjoba says Museveni is “probably the fittest president in Africa”.

“I bet most of the Bazzukulu can’t outwalk him,” said Ssejjoba who is documenting the entire walk step by step mile by mile.

At Masulita, Museveni took off time to hug Nalongo Masala Nabasirye, one of the civilian veterans who helped fighters during the bush war as a guide.

The president also greeted mzee Katende Ersto of Kyabumba village.

According to Ssejjoba, a large group of Ugandans are already getting a feel of what it was like slaloming through the thickets of some parts of the country during the liberation struggle in the 1980s.
