The loose-tongued presidential advisor for media, Tamale Mirundi, is sure no one will be affected by singer Juliana Kanyomozi choice to support President Yoweri Museveni.
Mirundi launched his scathing attack on the musicians yesterday while appearing on NBS TV.
“No one can take Juliana’s message serious,” the outspoken president’s dog said.
“Because,” he continued, “every man has used her and dumped her”.
Mirundi’s remarks came on heels of similar attacks from her fans who expressed their disappointment in Juliana.
“13 mothers die every day while giving birth becuase of his [Museveni’s] incompetence…you too rushed your kid [late Keron] to Nairobi because our hospitals couldn’t handle his situation….you deserve better like all of us. Think again,” a fan painfully reminded Juliana.
Juliana defends her decision to support Museveni:
“Ndi munnauganda nga abalala bonna. It means we all have the same fundamental rights regardless of our positions in society, or political beliefs, or even life experiences. But there’s one thing that brings us together, and that’s humanity, obuntu. We are all from the human race.
There’s no need to use abusive, disrespectful, judgemental and insensitive language towards each other simply because of our different beliefs. That is not going to add any value to you or me. No need to use hateful speech to drive a point across. Let’s agree to disagree on certain things, but respectfully. Rather than try to intimidate me to believe in what you believe in…. You also have the choice to support me in this musical journey or not to. I see absolutely no problem in that. I may be a musician and public figure, but away from the glitz and glam.
I’m also a human being just like everybody else. When I started singing, it was never about getting rich or becoming famous. And till today, I don’t base my happiness on those things because they come and go. I just wanted to sing and that’s what I still want to do, JUST SING and also continue to grow as a God fearing woman who respects her elders and love and love as much as I can. It doesn’t mean my life has been perfect,
I’ve been through some of the most painful experiences, just like most of you. But those values have not changed till today. I would rather sing for 10 people who will see me beyond the lights, camera, make up, hair extensions and high heels but see my soul, happiness, tears , pain and flaws, and still love me regardless. And I will be happy with that. Everything I do, I do for God and my country. Be blessed everyone.”
