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.

Mushega advises
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. “I 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 tiger’s back regardless of where it goes!” Superb advice Afande Mushega.


Adamant Buturo
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: “God was not a fool when he assigned each part of our bodies a specific function!” Pressed that donors might isolate Uganda, the minister quickly added: “Uganda 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.”

Kanyeihamba’s titles
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: “Let 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!” This was during the second Buganda conference at Hotel Africana last week.


Cultural leader
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 ‘cut’, meaning circumcised. Immediately Odit stood up and asked: “Honourable Speaker is it in order for Honourable Nandala Mafabi to claim he is a cultural leader and at the same time be a people’s representative in the august House?” MPs laughed off the joke but Nandala said he was not like the Emorimor but an expert at circumcising!
That is great expertise!
