The NRM Chief mobilizer Hajj Abdul Nadduli was Yesterday for the second time chased from a meeting organized by NRM officials to support amendment of the constitution at Summer gardens in Mukono Municipality
Museveni life presidency advocates have found it hard to have a room to address residents of Mukono on allowing to amend article 102(b).
The well attended meeting had district and LC 5, 3 councilors, LC-3 chairmen and NRM party flag bearers at all levels from the districts
Unlike in the first meeting on the 6th when Nadduli was allowed to speak before members told him off the constitution and nearly lynched him for transport allowances, this time he wasn’t even given time to speak.
Mukono district chairman Andrew Ssenyonga informed Nadduli that he thinks that Uganda will end with Museveni arguing that NRM party should look for a new leader.
Ssenyonga asked Nadduli why he wastes his time promoting life presidency of Museveni when even in NRM party there are people who can be better presidents than Museveni.
Drama continued when Mukono district speaker Emmanuel Mbonye, on behalf of all councilors told Nadduli and government in general to first recognize district councils as a second level legislation body next to parliament
Mbonye argued that in the current case their importance must be reflected atleast financially and asked Nadduli how much money he had brought them for togikwatako endorsement.
Nadduli said each is to get 30,000/=, This sparked anger from members who rioted and interpreted it into an abuse, as they calculated it to be 0.0000001% of what MPs got for the same, yet its them who reach down to people and know their opinion.
Mbonye further told Nadduli that constitution change is not just an NRM-party issue but a public issue which must be discussed in councils after councilors are given facilitation to make public consultations on the same-as it was with MPs.
Enraged Nadduli grabbed the microphone and told members not to behave like “villagers from ‘deep down in Kyazanga”. That was his only statement on the day as
Kasawo sub-county woman councilor Damari Musenero pounced on him saying: “Can someone from Luweero call anyone in Mukono a villager?” She asked
“You sold off all your teeth to rats for money but you are still yawning and selling off your country for money, respect your age” She added to crown Nadduli’s rude welcome into Mukono
As tempers rose, MP, Muyanja Ssenyonga, MP Kusasira peace and NRM chairman Ssebagala Twairi abandoned the meeting and left Nadduli alone.
The speaker told him that Mukono has 5MPs and each was given 29m to consult them on age limit but none has consulted them on the same because they know the district stand then why should Nadduli waste their time?
Kisakye Timothy, the district councilor representing Ntunda sub-county told Nadduli to first spread the kugikwatako gospel in Luwero before bringing it to Mukono where people are already decided.
It was at this time that Nadduli angrily moved out of the meeting being followed by words from members that a person at his age, like Museveni should be resting somewhere as they can no longer handle the new generation.
