Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo is ready to pull some money out of his wallet and purchase an old English novel “Tale of Two Cities” which he will hand to Amama Mbabazi.
“l wanna buy for Amama Mbabazi a copy of A Tale Two Cities,” the Media Centre boss tweeted.
“A Tale of Two Cities” (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution.
The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period.
Opondo’s decision to buy the novel and give it to Mbabazi came after Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that President Yoweri Museveni was validly elected as President of the Republic of Uganda in the just concluded February 2016 Presidential polls.
All the nine Supreme Court judges agreed unanimously to the decision and dismissed the petition against his Presidency without costs.
“So at this rate so far at the Supreme Court where is Amama Mbabazi standing,” Opondo had earlier tweeted as Chief Justice Bart Katureebe delivered his ruling.
Opondo advised Mbabazi to keep “sipping some water to avoid choking everyone” as he lost his petition.
“What has Amama Mbabazi legal team been doing to rely mainly on hearsay? Gona be good, it seems,” he stated in response to CJ’s revelation that most of the evidence provided by the former Prime Minister’s lawyers was based on hearsay other than factual information.
“Folks, we NRM have fought this hard battle of opposition negativity and shall triumph.”
Opondo further wondered whether there is there any correlation between Mbabazi’s over 15,000 followers on Twitter and the votes he got.
“He should have stayed on twitter.”
