‘KASUKAALI’ AGAINST FIRE: No One, I Repeat, No One Can Silence Me, On Matters I Know Well, Facts, And What I Stand For! – Govt. Spokesperson Warns Bobi Wine Supporters…

Published

on

The deputy government Spokesperson Rtd. Col. Shaban Bantariza has warned Ugandans who are threatening him over his ‘Kasukaali’ (sugar) comments.

Recently, Bantariza was quoted in the media allegedly telling NRM leaders in Kampala at a meeting at Nakivubo Blue Primary School playground that if Bobi Wine thinks that he has ‘Kasukaali’, the NRM has fire and they will respond to him with the same fire if he continues with his activities which Bantariza said are aimed at distorting peace in the country.

Today, Bantariza, who claimed that his message was somehow distorted took to twitter and warned those who are hurling threats and insults at him.

“Masses”, you said? (laughs) For me, if you didn’t know, no one, I repeat, no one can silence me, on matters I know well, facts, and what I stand for! Social media “masses” are a small minority, but since politics is like money, every cent counts! Let me burn down dt can of worms!” Bantariza responded to a one Ugandan Panther who has earlier threatened him that, “Shameless arrogant out of touch @Bantariza opened a can of worms and is facing the wrath of the mases… too blind to notice and apologize boosting with 3guns against 44m Ugandans. The worst is yet to come after the ignorance you displayed.”

Here are some of the exchanges between Bantariza and Ugandans who were angered by his comment:

I Have Never Stolen Anything From Anyone That Is Why I Will Be The First To Stone A Corrupt Person – Physically Fit M7 Warns The Corrupt…

Published

on

President Museveni has warned Ugandans who accept bribes that he will be the first one to stone anyone implicated in corruption tendencies.

The president made these remarks at a function organized by Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema’s State House Anti-corruption unit after the anti-corruption walk that took place today morning.

The walk was organized to highlight the negativity of corruption and also to show the need to end the vice in Uganda. Museveni said he is ready to deal with Ugandans who practice corruption and pretend to be holy.

“Many people are corrupt but pretend to be holy. When you ask anyone who has never stolen, pick a stone and throw at the corrupt, I will be the first to pick it because I have never stolen anything from any one and I am not corrupt,” president said.

The President further revealed that even though he has never chewed a bribe, he is still not poor. “I am not corrupt and I am not poor,” Museveni said.

He further noted that corruption is both spiritual and moral and that it is a practice that makes someone a parasite. “A corrupt person is like a parasite that feeds on people’s blood, you earn what you have not worked for,” he said.

He warned those who got wealth through corruption to be kin because wealth from corruption does not last long. “It seems wealth from corruption does not stay longer, I have never seen corrupt people sustaining their wealth,” he added .

He further revealed that he knows some of the corrupt people but it’s not yet time for him to disclose them to the public.

“I know some of the corrupt people, I will not mention their names but I will expose them when time comes,” he promised.

He urged the public and the anti-corruption agents to corporate and fight against corruption in Uganda. “Corruption can be ended through unity of the public and the anti-corruption agents, we need to work together to end corruption in Uganda,” he said.

The President also took time to answer social media critics who question how he acquired his herd of cattle at his farm in Kisozi.

Museveni said, “I got them cows from my grand and God has kept them. UNLA soldiers wanted to steal the cattle but failed. They even blew up the house of my mother using an RPG but they didn’t steal them because they were hidden in the savanna.”

Museveni asked three government bodies including the Inspectorate of Government (IGG), State House anti-corruption unit and Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) to ensure that they don’t recruit employees only on the basis of qualifications but they should also consider their integrity.
