Outspoken Presidential Advisor on media, Tamale Mirundi, is back in the news.
On Tuesday morning, he was live on NBS TV discussing the current political events in the country.
Mirundi started by talking about himself of course, revealing that he is the only person in government that has never asked President Yoweri Museveni for money.
He then took on Buganda reminding them that a federal system also being championed by Uganda Federal Alliance president, Beti Kamya, cannot work in Uganda.
“Federal can’t exist in a small state because it involves sharing resources,” Tamale said.
Jumping very fast, Tamale picked the hottest topic of presidential aspirant, Amama Mbabazi, who threatens to oust his boss.
“I detected Mbabazi’s plan many years back but when I spoke out no one listened.”
He said Mbabazi’s “monkey tricks are over”, passing him off as “a spy”.
Tamale agreed Mbabazi gathering press and social media storm, was the fault of the ruling party, NRM.
“NRM party does not value media and this is how Mbabazi is gathering numbers.”
When asked whether Mbabazi was a threat to Museveni, Tamale retorted: “I don’t like going to talk shows where the host is stupid.”
He said The Democratic Alliance (TDA) which is currently embroiled in disagreements, was a creation of Amama.
“TDA was the creation of Amama Mbabazi,” Tamale stated quite clearly.
On Thursday, Mbabazi missed the deadline for returning presidential nomination forms but was given a second chance.
On Friday, he missed the deadline again by two hours and presented faulty papers.
TDA officials once more were lenient allowing him to pick fresh papers which he returned in the night and was nominated at around 10pm.
On Sunday, officials sat at their offices in Naguru and rated Mbabazi above opposition favourite Kizza Besigye.
According to sources, Mbabazi picked a cool 46 percent with Besigye trailing closely with 45 percent in TDA ratings of a joint presidential candidate who will stand against Museveni in 2016 elections.
“For me to support Mbabazi will show that am a stupid person,” Tamale concluded.
Tamale said a group [Museveni regime] that has been in power for a long time “should be allowed to leave power gradually”.
