Former East Africa Community secretary general Amanya Mushega has hears and seen it all so he has a stern warning for youths who aspire to lead Uganda. â€œI want to warn you to avoid stretching your hand into national resources. If you do so you will be like a man riding on the back of a tiger. He fears to jump off in case it eats him and even fears to stretch out his hand in case it bites it off so he is stuck on the tigerâ€™s back regardless of where it goes!â€ Superb advice Afande Mushega.
Ethics and integrity minister James Nsaba Buturo does not mince words. He recently sent a clear message to those who enjoy anal sex when he said: â€œGod was not a fool when he assigned each part of our bodies a specific function!â€ Pressed that donors might isolate Uganda, the minister quickly added: â€œUganda wants partners in development but not partners in promoting a practice which they know to be illegal by our laws, abnormal by our cultural standards and religious values and therefore unacceptable.â€
Retired Justice George Kanyeihamba is a well read academic whose titles recently baffled the elderly Mrs. Joyce Mpanga. Mpanga who was chairing a session briefly explained to participants who Kanyeihamba is. In the process he found out that she could not mention all his titles and said: â€œLet me introduce to you Honourable Justice Professor, Doctor G. W. Kanyeihamba, LLB, LLM and all those other titles PhD, LLD, SC, my God they are very many!â€ This was during the second Buganda conference at Hotel Africana last week.
John Odit (UPC) is a very shy legislator. However, when he decides to make his point he minces no words. Recently, Nandala Mafabi (FDC) told Parliament that he is a cultural leader and next year one of his sons would be â€˜cutâ€™, meaning circumcised. Immediately Odit stood up and asked: â€œHonourable Speaker is it in order for Honourable Nandala Mafabi to claim he is a cultural leader and at the same time be a peopleâ€™s representative in the august House?â€ MPs laughed off the joke but Nandala said he was not like the Emorimor but an expert at circumcising!
That is great expertise!
