OFWONO OPONDO: Cash heist in Parliament and Mathias Mpuuga’s combat for political life

Uganda’s mainstream media homes with almost 100 journalists accredited to cowl Parliament all couldn’t sniff the stench from what seems to be fictitious bills payouts till volunteer digital warriors uncovered it within the ongoing #UgandaParliamentExhibition. Out of embarrassment they’re now diverting debate to the little combat of Robert Kyagulanyi a.ok.a. Bobi Wine and Mathias Mpuuga. In the meantime MPs throughout the aisle are as silent as a tombstone fearing to rock a vicious high to which a lot of them have turn into surrogates.

Many journalists connected to parliament are beneficiaries of sentimental cash handouts and now not able to smelling actual journalism there. Going by the revelations up to now printed in opposition to some high canine at parliament, though but unverified, it seems there’s a cabal run amok with monetary bonanza. It takes a genius to be in two completely different locations on the identical time, and maybe there’s a false perception some folks shouldn’t be accountable. It’s unhappy all that is taking place below a Clerk to Parliament Adolf Mwesige, a senior lawyer, former deputy lawyer normal, minister of native authorities, and defence whose head ought to be on is the chopping board.

Once you inherit a pack of hounds, by no means have excessive expectations they are going to instantly change their searching habits particularly if they’ve lived within the grasslands longer than your self. The Nationwide Unity Platform (NUP) Principal is noisily blowing trumpet that he has caught Mpuuga within the nooks dragging away a 500 million in backhand cost dubbed ‘Service Award” given in Might 2022 earlier than he had accomplished one 12 months, and two NUP MPs have been in jail. The pay was hidden from public data and Mpuuga ought to disclose what he delivered in return.

Particulars now present that serving Parliament Commissioners sizzling the backhand picked from the Parliamentary SACCO to be repaid with curiosity. The Prime Minister, Minister of Finance, and Authorities Chief Whip who signify the Govt on the Fee could have to elucidate what they know.

Kyagulanyi shouldn’t go round making noise if that’s what he’s used to within the ghetto as a result of some may even see you as an incompetent nuisance unable to deal with mundane affairs internally. When Mpuuga and different hounds in DP destroyed their marriage to Norbert Mao, and joined NUP to enter parliament, they first paralysed him past restore, and plenty of laughed. To outlive, Kyagulanyi could should kick them out soonest. Kyagulanyi must be taught NRM’s lesson with its ‘insurgent’ MPs initially stored in parliament by a scheming Speaker, and Courts of regulation, and who’ve received each reelection since then.

Mpuuga and the Suubi pack shaped in 2011 are outdated and skilled sectarian-chauvinist trench conflict fighters who refused to go away DP voluntarily till 2020 when Mao was utterly down. Looking back, many now know that Mao’s capitulation at Hajji Kassim’s ft was on realizing that little or no was left to achieve. Kyagulanyi is deluded to suppose that having barked, Mpuuga’s time below the nice and cozy sunshine is in jeopardy. However you have already got intelligent legal professionals and opposition politicians justifying how completely authorized Mpuuga’s ‘service award’ is which solely riff-raffs aren’t capable of see. This legalese will assist hold Mpuuga within the Council Home till 2026.

Many are mocking Kyagulanyi for goading a combat unaware how lengthy it may run. As the massive hound, Mpuuga is mobilizing different hounds and foxes even when simply to yell irritatingly on the large canine telling him to drop his fats catch. Those that grew up amongst hunters within the countryside understand how harmful it’s to drive your individual hound to drop a recreation between its enamel until you provide it one thing in return. You’ve observed loud-mouthed opposition foxes working to each hilltop with megaphones in Mpuuga’s defence.
