Tinkasimire breaks into dance on seeing Museveni


Tinkasimire greets the president


On Tuesday, President Yoweri Museveni visited Buyaga West County in Kibaale district to preach wealth creation.

The president’s visit excited the area MP, Barnabas Tinkasimire, beyond description.

To express his excitement and gratitude, Tinkasimire broke into a dance that many claim is the kind that hasn’t been seen in the area for decades now.

Tinkasimire is one of the four NRM rebel MPs who were expelled from the party and later kicked out of parliament in 2013 for standing against the president.

The other are; Theodore Ssekikubo (Lwemiyaga county), Mohammed Nsereko (Kampala central), and Wilfred Niwagaba (Ndorwa East).

Tinkasimire was the first to appeal before court reinstated them.

In January 2013, Sekikubo and Tinkasimire were seen enjoying a meal at the NRM retreat at Kyankwanzi yet before the NRM Parliamentary caucus retreat, they had threatened not to eat food on suspicion of “food poisoning”.

In February 2014, Tinkasimire was arrested for attempting to cause mayhem at the wedding of Denis Namara, then Namara is the National Resistance Movement youth chairperson and senior presidential advisor on youth affairs, held in Rutete sub county Kibaale district.

He was charged with disregarding traffic instructions on an event attended by President Yoweri Museveni.

In May 2015, Tinkasimire invited former Prime Minister and NRM Secretary General, Amama Mbabazi, as a chief guest on his wedding.

Yet, the dance and excitement Tinkasimire exhibited at seeing Museveni, if to go by, could indicate a dramatic comeback.

Last month, Ssekikubo made headlines when he sang praises to Museveni describing him as the best leader ever.

It is not clear what exactly the rebel MPs are up to.
