A few days ago, MK Movement deputy spokesman David Kabanda (besides fellow MK Michael Mawanda) was hosted by journalist Goodluck on Kasese-based Mesiah 97.5 fm. The duo was accompanied by Daphine Joyce Walembwa who is the MK Movement Coordinator for Kasese and Rwenzori sub regions.
They were hear to sensitize masses about the MK Movement and the ideals it stands for. And this was days after Bobi Wine visited Kasese and pulled crowds. Kabanda used the occasion to belittle Bobi Wine whose rally size he dismissed as not that big compared to what MK intends to have during his upcoming tours of the same sub region.
The controversial Kasambya County MP claimed that Mr. Wine’s crowd majorly comprised of “hooligans” he ferried and came with from Kampala “who went as far as looting and mistreating poor women selling stuff on the roadside within Kasese town.” Kabanda bragged that his boss MK won’t have to do such a thing because he has organic support among the residents of Kasese who will come to meet and greet him in larger numbers.
Kabanda disclosed that the country’s Standby Generator will commence his tours of the sub region with a visit to the Omusinga whose wellbeing the MK Movement government will be prioritising while making sure he is financially facilitated to lead the mobilisation of his people from poverty into economic prosperity.
Kabanda said that the MK government will ensure the Kasese sub region is enabled to reap from economic benefits deriving from natural attractions like Queen Elizabeth National Park besides Nakasanga airfield which he promised will be developed and upgraded to the level of Entebbe International Airport. That doing such will make Kasese cheaper and easier to access by both Ugandan and foreign tourists since the transport problem will have been solved.
Kabanda then turned to the people of Kasese and advised them to shun self-seeking politicians like Bobi Wine because now must be time for the sub region to rally behind Omusinga and have a good relationship with the Central government to rebuild and catch up on what has been lost in the 8 years counting from 2016 when political turmoil and violence engulfed the Obusinga region.
“That Bobi Wine man is very selfish and insensitive to your suffering. He wants to come here and incite you into conflict with the Central government and when things backfire, he runs to United States of America to join his imperialist friends to chop money. Be careful with such inexperienced leaders who imperialists manipulate very easily for their own agenda. If you think I’m lying just see what a musical DJ, who is an imperialist stooge, has caused to Madagascar. That once vibrant country is all gone in the same way having a comedian as President has caused problems for Ukrain,” said Kabanda renowned for fearlessly taking on Mr. Wine’s sycophants on social media.
In a bid to show how his man will do a much better job building on and consolidating Museveni’s achievements, Kabanda gave the example of his 11 year-old son who he said operates his father’s very sophisticated mobile smart phone better than his dad who bought and owns the gadget. Mawanda immediately jumped in to complement Kabanda’s point on MK’s great leadership credentials by asserting that it’s simply not possible for good milk (which is M7) to produce or yield bad yoghurt (read MK).
This milk-yogurt analogy had been made and popularised by National Guidance Minister Godfrey Kabyanga (a leading MK figure in Kasese) during an earlier community event both Kabanda and Mawanda attended before coming for the Mesiah radio talk show. Mawanda also assured Kasese residents that the MK Movement isn’t out to antagonise or undo Gen Museveni’s legacy because the MK Movement believes in and is prepared to consolidate gains Uganda has made guided by the 4 NRM ideological pillars of Pan-Africanism, Patriotism, Democracy and Social Economic transformation.
Kabanda, in the end, urged Kasese residents to shun ethnicity and other unhelpful parochial considerations by rallying behind their own leaders like Kabyanga, Daphine Joyce Walembwa, Enock Bwambale and others to amplify political support for Gen MK who the people of Kasese have already christened “Baluku” which is one of the common names in the sub region.
He assured his audience that it’s Gen MK, and not the guitarman (a reference to Bobi Wine), that will be next President of Uganda come 2026 immediately after the veteran leader from Rwakitura and proceed to effectively govern it into a first world country because of the enormous experience he has amassed in his public service roles including being the Commander land forces in the UPDF.
