Former Vice president, Gilbert Bukenya, says he is going to vomit one of these days at the sight of presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi’s posters.
Bukenya made the in Luweero district where he was campaigning for President Museveni at the close of the week.
The professor said he feels like vomiting whenever he sees the posters of Mbabazi pinned on the streets.
“That one [Mbabazi],” Bukenya emphasised, “he still thirsts for power.”
“But,” he continued, “he is not yet ready to take it [power].”
Bukenya then told the crowd at his rally that he every time he meets Mbabazi’s posters, he gets a nausea and may be forced to vomit one day.
“Last time I saw one of his posters here in our town, Wobulenzi…I got nausea.”
At the same rally, Bukenya said during his interaction with Besigye and Mbabazi in The Democratic Alliance [TDA], he discovered that apart from fighting to replace Museveni, both presidential candidates were not interested in developing the country.
Bukenya who was once in cabinet with Mbabazi, fell out with Museveni since he was sacked as VP in 2011.
He joined opposition vowing to remove Museveni from power in the 2016 general elections.
Bukenya defected from opposition back to the ruling party in October 2015 saying it was only Museveni who still had the vision for the country.
In response, Mbabazi said he would never do what Bukenya did [support Museveni again].
Mbabazi who served as the ruling party Secretary General said he disagreed with Museveni as a matter of principle.
“My disagreement with the NRM party as it functions now is based on principle. I believe in the rule of law, in civility, in transition of power. NRM today, at least at the top level of leadership, does not believe in or care about those same things,” he said in a statement.
He added: “The members and supporters of NRM largely do but it is very clear the top leadership does not. My disagreement is primarily with that section of the NRM party.”
Bukenya still holds Mbabazi accountable for the suffering he went through in his first phase of service within the NRM government.
