MP Lwemiyaga County, Hon. Theodore Sekikubo, has asked President Yoweri Museveni to restrain Foreign Affairs minister, Sam Kutesa.
Sekikubo was Monday speaking at Museveni’s rally in Ssembabule district.
Sekikubo asked the president to reign in on Kutesa who he accused of suppressing his [Sekikubo’s] supporters with ruthless violence.
“We are under you. You are the chairman of NRM party and president. It’s you who holds a flag and I follow you,” Sekikubo said amid wild cheers.
When the noise had subsided, Sekikubo told the president point blank that they were tired of being mistreated.
“We are tired of being teargassed everyday here,” he said, as cheers gained pace once more.
“We are tired of being shot at. Bullets everyday!”
Sekikubo continued, “tell us whether it’s you who is the president or whether Kutesa is the president.”
Kutesa, who is also the MP for neighbouring Mawogola county denied the allegations and said he has no interest in the outcome of the Lwemiyaga MP race.
“I was surprised that Lwemiyaga problems are blamed on me,” Kutesa told NTV.
“I have no interest in Lwemiyaga. I would like to work with Sekikubo.”
Museveni on the other hand ignored Sekikubo and talked about the development projects his government is undertaking in Sembabule district like providing clean water system and fix the roads in the district.
