The Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze secret ties with the ruling National Resistance Movement’s top officials have been revealed.
Early this week, while appearing on the NBS Barometer programme, Nambooze blatantly denied any connections or having ever had secret meetings with any top government officials, including the Speaker of Parliament among others, in private.
MP Abed Bwanika of Kimanya-Kabonera County (NUP) during the same show trashed Nambooze’s claim, describing it as misleading since he is aware of several meetings she has ever held with top NRM strategists.
He further warned MP Nambooze against what he termed “pretense” and she should stop masquerading in the media to portray themselves as being as clean as a whistle.
MP Bwanika confirmed being in possession of critical evidence confirming secret dealings between MP Nambooze and other NUP leaders with the ruling party.
“A lot of pretence from Nambooze; Bwanika is honest, and he’s exonerated on what he was telling pretenders and operatives,” said Emma Tumusiime on Twitter.
Namobooze has since remained quiet, failed to challenge Bwanika’s claims, and couldn’t answer on what grounds she was airlifted to the US for specialised treatment on taxpayer money.
Bwanika went ahead and labelled the likes of Nambooze as selfish and greedy, something that triggered a series of rages from the Mukono MP.
Nambooze overreacted, stood up, picked up her stuff, and threatened to leave the show in anger.
For long, Bwanika has been calling upon his party and the entire opposition to negotiate with the government in order to release many of their supporters who are in jail.
“This is the high time we tried negotiations and stopped cheap politics while other people, our own people, are suffering,” the legislator said.
However, some party leaders and supporters downplayed Bwanika’s suggestion, alluding that the NUP cannot sit at the same table with the NRM government because it has violated the human rights of Ugandans.
Bwanika accuses some party leaders like Nambooze of pretending before the media yet going ahead and colluding with the government for favours for themselves in terms of money and deals, among others.
