  1. Now i can not wait to see the reaction of our president of Uganda Kagutta yoweri Museveni sabarwana kawo kada, golora2, bush warrior of all times, luwero witness, NRM leader, Money Distributor and giver, the only one who has served Uganda many years than any other president,, kyankwanzi chairman, Putins best friend, the one who does not tack in, the one who critizes western culture but hardly put on African attires and lastly but not least “ORDER FROM ABOVE Name them all…lol

  2. I have never supported the idea of having UPDF Representatives in Parliament! if that’s the case, even Police, Prisons and other Government Agencies should be represented too!

  3. I think right Honorable Kadaga has got what it takes to control the affairs of the big house. I think being eloquent and dissent is not bad because it helps the parliament and the government to check where it has gone wrong.
    Uganda is one of the country which can be peaceful under responsible leaders but we simply have to have a big picture of what we want our country to be. This is because we have enough resources to support us all only that some few indisciplined citizens simply prove to be selfish.

  4. The Prominent MPs are finally out of the hands of the Ruling Party which had wanted to push them out of Parliament like dogs kicked outside the huge pile of meat before them however These are learned and outspoken Lawyers and intellectuals Uganda has that have made Museveni and his other MPs Party members that Uganda cannot be drugged into dictatorship so openly,freely and without willingness the battle is almost over and the Museveni and his weak supporters are seeing the light of what Justice and peace means to any given country.

  5. Bravo Kadaga !! This iron lady has got both the balls and bottle stand her ground in the name of justice.

  6. Waleya needs prayers, all he does is attack the President even when the artcle of the day does not concern Museveni
