KADAGA: I’M A LOYAL NRM CADRE WHO CAN’T REFUSE MZEE’S CABINET POSITION
By Mulengera Reporters
Contrary to online media reports alleging that she felt insulted and won’t be accepting to serve as 1st Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for EAC Affairs, Rebecca Kadaga maintains that she is more than ready to commence work in her new role.
“Just ignore that social media wolokoso. We are in touch with Mama and she hasn’t indicated anywhere that she isn’t taking up the job. In fact, all she has said so far is that she will be taking it up because being a loyal cadre of the Movement, there is no way she can insult the President by declining his assignment,” a source very close to Kadaga confided in Mulengera News this Wednesday afternoon.
Many commentators, including NUP MP Betty Nambooze who claims to be a strong Kadaga ally, have been suggesting that a senior person like Rebecca Kadaga having to serve under new Prime Minister designate Robinah Nabanja, who previously was always her junior and diehard supporter, is a derogatory act by the appointing authority which the Kamuli woman MP, they assert, must protest by politely declining the job so that she concentrates on excelling as a back bencher.
However, knowledgeable sources say that in her heart of hearts, Kadaga would currently not want doing or uttering anything that can ignite open political confrontation between her and her mentor Gen YK Museveni who is renowned for decisively crashing provocative foes who dare engage him in a fight.
