Tumwebaze Stings Amama: You are Exhausted

Minister in Charge of the Presidency and Kampala Capital City, Hon Frank Tumwebaze has once again unleashed verbal artillery at Ex Prime minister and 2016 presidential aspirant John Patrick Amama Mbabazi.

No nonsense Kampala Minister Frank Tumwebaze.

While commenting on the letter that Mbabazi penned to President Museveni, Frank noted that if the NRM system is tired, then Mbabazi must be exhausted.

“So what makes the system “tired” and himself who was at the vanguard of steering that system in various roles, “fresh and new”?. If the system is tired, then he must be exhausted himself,” said Tumwebaze in a statement he posted on his official Facebook page.

Tumwebaze however noted that Mbabazi is free to vie for any office be it in NRM or elsewhere

“As said earlier Mbabazi is free to vie for any office be it in NRM or elsewhere. But he contradicts himself a great deal on many issues.”

Below is Tumwebaze’s Full statement

I have seen and read Hon Amama Mbabazi’s letter to HE President Yoweri Museveni.

Below is my brief response to some of its contents that I feel I deserve a comment or two;

“As said earlier Mbabazi is free to vie for any office be it in NRM or elsewhere. But he contradicts himself a great deal on many issues.

For him to lambast other leaders in NRM and call them fortune seeking cadres is very unfortunate of him. So does he want to say that all the Time he worked as the party’s chief mobilize (party Secretary General) responsible among others for mentoring and recruiting cadres; he only mentored fortune seekers? If that is what he means, then it means he was the pioneer of that fortune seeking ideology. And in any case which cadres did he mentor?

He talks of a tired system and efficiency in government. So what makes the system “tired” and himself who was at the vanguard of steering that system in various roles, “fresh and new”?. If the system is tired, then he must be exhausted himself. So, is his legacy all about mentoring fortune seeking cadres and creating a tired system? Has he only realized all those alleged defects in the system after his involuntary exist? Am happy he is launching his bid with such shaky and contradictory arguments. It gives the NRM members an a opportunity to discern him with ease. I wish him well”
