President Yoweri Museveni has described the former Bubulo West MP Tonny Kipoi Nsubuga as a ‘mad’ man.


“You elected a mad man Kipoi and when he got there (Parlaiment) , he wanted to overthrow the NRM government with guns. We threw him in. But because of the courts which are confused, they released him on bond and he fled to DR Congo. You have been here for long without any representation," he said.

Museveni was speaking at a rally in Manafwa district where he campaigned for Rose Mutonyi, the NRM candidate in the by-election to replace the renegade lawmaker.

The Bubulo West seat fell vacant after Parliament kicked out Kipoi for missing fifteen consecutive sessions without a valid explanation of his whereabouts.

Museveni described Mutonyi as a hardworking and incorruptible lady.

Elections are slated for this month.

"I know this woman. I first met her as a teacher and wife to one of our fighters Natoolo Masaba. I first appointed her RDC and later ambassador to India. She is very strict and hardworking. That is why she quarrels with people who steal money. We need leaders like this to fight thieves,” Museveni said.

 On her part, Mutonyi said that: “If you give me your vote, I will monitor all government programmes because if the money is stolen, we are the losers. When I get thieves I will put them where they belong, away from our midst".
