RECENTLY, President Yoweri Museveni gave a free political lecture to all MPs. The President noted that many MPs did not know how to handle political issues as they continuously engage in loose talk. â€œMany of you take politics as a career,â€ he said. At the mention of this, opposition MPs shouted ICT minister Aggrey Aworiâ€™s name claiming that his crossing to the NRM earned him a job. But to their amusement, the President said that Awori was a very wise comrade who sees well when others cannot read the compass correctly.
Lwemiyaga MP Theodore Sekikubo was recently humbled during the public accounts committee proceedings. The finance ministry permanent secretary, Chris Kassami was was explaining why sh8.5b was diverted to fund the construction of the Northern Bypass but Sekikubo continuously harassed him urging him â€œto take matters like a manâ€. Kassami counter-attacked and hit him where it hurt most. He said: â€œHonourable Member, remember that some of us have relatives in Sembabule. You will need us when the time comes.â€ After that Sekikubo ceased fire.
After being grilled by the public accounts committee, the finance permanent secretary Chris Kassami was exhausted and hungry and told the committee so. â€œI really donâ€™t know how I can go through this without taking anything,â€ Kassami told the committee chairperson, Nandala Mafabi. Mafabi immediately offered him a plate full of mandazi and sausages which he gladly accepted amidst cheers from MPs who said this was part of the CHOGM cake.
President Museveni wants Africa insured. Recently, he observed that unlike other indigenous people from other continents that were colonised, Africans braved colonialism and survived. â€œIt is not easy to kill Africans because of our strong genes. Look at America; it is occupied by the British calling themselves Americans. The original Americans were all exterminated,â€ he said. The President reasoned that if Africa is not insured, it is likely to be colonised again and its people might disappear.
