Contrary to what many people know, renegade Gen. David Sejusa a.k.a Tinyefuza is a deep political ally to Hajji Nasser Ntege Sebaggala aka ‘Sseya’
Our Sources are privileged to reports that their friendship grew even deeper during the 2006 general elections when Sseya rode on Besigye’s popularity to win the Kampala Mayorship.
We are told it is Tinyefuza who told Sseya to swallow his pride and work with Besigye who was selling like hot cake at the time. To be precise Moses Bigirwa, who was Sseya’s personal secretary at the time and is now an adviser of sorts to Ssejusa, says it was Tinyefuza who prevailed on UNEB,NCHE and other relevant bodies not to entertain any petitions challenging Seya’s academic qualifications which in 2001, only five years earlier, the same bodies had equated to PLE certificate.
When Sseya got the office he closely worked with Tinye for whom he got new friends like Mukasa Mbidde and Micheal Mabikke who were then Sseya’s aides at city hall.
It was also under Sseya’s reign that the defunct KCC Councillors were arm- twisted to donate the mayor’s official residence at Mabua road in Kololo to Gen Tinyefuza only to eventually be humiliatingly evicted by new KCCA ED Jennifer Musisi.
Indeed Sseya, who has lately been very intolerant to Museveni’s critics, has refused to antagonize Tinye in his weekly radio shows on Luganda radio stations in the city.
