The renowned National Unity Platform’s Moses Bigirwa has censured president Yoweri Museveni’s sickness, saying the fountain of honor is tricking for public sympathy.
Bigirwa who is the NUP’s secretary for mobilization in Eastern region, told Busoga Today that president Museveni is not sick but instead lacks money to give his people.
“He is not sick, COVID-19 can’t attack him according to his protection,” says Bigirwa.
He says that; “To meet Museveni, one must have tested for COVID-19 which is a signal that he was not infected by anyone.”
President Museveni is battling with coronavirus disease after testing positive last week on Wednesday and he is currently in self-isolation at Nakasero State Lodge in Kampala. This comes after he met a number of local and foreign visitors before his state of nation address where he revealed his illness.
The president delegated all his works to Prime minister Robinah Nabbanja, which has framed a lot of unanswered questions amongst Ugandans.
Bigirwa, however, says the president is just hiding from people whom he is used to give “handouts” whenever he meets them, adding that he is attracting foreign attention to aid him with money.
According to reports from Nakasero, the sick Museveni is getting on well. While addressing Journalists on Monday at Nakasero State Lodge, Dr. Kenneth Omona the principal presidential secretary, said the president is in good spirits and recovering steadily from the illness.
Meanwhile, the sickness attacks Museveni amidst his regional tours of spreading the gospel of Parish Development Model (PDM) which he believes that it “must” get Ugandans out of poverty.
Museveni says PDM is the only way a Ugandan shall stop “kidakyonka” as it emphasizes agriculture which can employ a number of citizens.
In his response, however, Bigirwa lashed the president about PDM which he says it is a fake project with no impact to Ugandans.
“Parish Development Model is a project of NRM cadres at local level to get some money from government,” he said.
“The ten or eleven million at a parish can’t elevate a population of 4000 people a minimum parish maybe having,” he added.
