“WITHOUT my beautiful wife, Susan, seated here with me, I would never have gone through the 17 years as minister in the Movement Government where I served for 15 years as the local government minister, in 1986 as labour minister and 2 years as energy minister.

“WITHOUT my beautiful wife, Susan, seated here with me, I would never have gone through the 17 years as minister in the Movement Government where I served for 15 years as the local government minister, in 1986 as labour minister and 2 years as energy minister. She helped me absorb shocks and find comfort,” outgoing local government minister, Jaberi Bidandi Ssali, said recently.
He held a large audience spell-bound last Friday night as he reflected on his life until the recent Cabinet reshuffle in which he was replaced by another veteran Prof Tarsis Kabwegyere.
Ssali, dressed in a crisp burgundy single-breast suit, introduced to the cheering audience, his smiling wife clad in an elegant yellow African garb of polished cotton crowned by a queenly red head gear at a farewell party by the local government ministry at the Kampala Mayor’s Gardens on Friday night.
“While I am very grateful to people like the late PS Gasasira, Tecla Kinalwa, F.X. Lubanga, David Ebong, Lwamafa, many of whom are now respectable permanent secretaries plus Hon. Otafiire (Environment Minister) and others who worked with me over the years and assisted me in formulating and implementing the Movement’s most fundamental baby of decentralisation, but my here Susan deserves special thanks”, he said as he pointed at her.
She smiled and waved gingerly at the clapping audience.
“This lady you see here is very useful. She helped me absorb so many shocks that I just pity her and then thank her very much,” he said.
