The former leader of witchdoctors in Uganda, Sophia Namutebi alias maama Fina, who is also a mobiliser of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) has revealed that some party elites have stolen a lot of money meant to help Ugandans and are keeping it in their homes.
Speaking to the media recently, Namutebi said that the NRM elites put their chairman and also the president of Uganda Yoweri Museveni under captivity which has enabled them to steal every coin that crosses their way.
“They don’t love the party, they only put on nice ties and suites. When they hear that there is a by election, they start giving themselves roles with an intention of stealing money. They use the bags of money that the president gives them to mobilize for the party support to give surprises to their girlfriends and boyfriends and others build mega houses,” Maama Fiina said.
On the two by-elections that the ruling NRM party has lost, Maama Fiina said that, “In the Kyadondo East by-election, we had a weak candidate. I told them that our candidate (Mike Ssebalu) cannot win against a very strong Bobi Wine. In Jinja East by-election, we had a very strong candidate, but the people who went there to help him look for votes just wanted to make money. We had so many NRM leaders going to Jinja but they didn’t go to campaign for Nabeta, they went to eat Museveni’s money.”
She revealed that after the by election in Kyadondo east, where Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi wine defeated them, she was called by one of the top NRM leaders to his home. When she reached there, he took her in a room which was full of money in dollars and shillings and told her to bless it. Maama Fiina refused to bless the money and told this NRM top honcho that he was very rich and didn’t need any more blessings.
“People are very hostile these days against NRM candidates, you know those educated people think that they are the only ones who have to be with money because they speak a lot of English. We have decided to leave them with their party until the president will wake up, but I don’t know whether he will be still the president,” Namutebi said.
She added that because of the NRM’s thieving leaders, she has also stopped helping people who come crying to her for.
She warned president Museveni to wake up and arrest all those who steal public money.
