KAMPALA–Famous Makerere University Researcher Stella Nyanzi has lately come to be known as an iron.
This is because she is a lady hardly out of wars. If she is not fighting with the First lady Janet Museveni, then she is either fighting President Yoweri Museveni or her employers.
Well, she is back at it again and today’s opponent is quite a surprise. She is involved in a verbal fight with her kid sister, city lawyer Sheilah Nyanzi.
The fight has been sparked off by Stella Nyanzi as she tried to explain why she is not interested in contesting for any political office despite pleas from several people requesting her to contest for a political office in Kampala.
“I am very hesitant to contest for MP because of the traumatic experiences my family underwent when my father contested for a similar position. Politics can make one mad! Because he was spending a lot of money on his MP election campaigns, my father refused to pay school fees for my mother’s last born child. Because he was paying for food and drink to be consumed during his political rallies aimed at soliciting for votes from villagers, my father came home and proudly declared that he was not going to spend any more money on my sister’s education,” she wrote Thursday on Facebook where she commands a huge following.
However, her post seems to have rubbed Sheilah on the wrong side.
She quickly hit back exposing her big sister as a liar only interested in washing their family linens in public.
“Stop the foolery! I have paid fees for your 3 children since 2011 to 2017. Did I have to tell the world that you were just roaming the globe whilst leaving no fees or support for them? No, it was unnecessary and we shielded the family from it. Have you paid back those debts accumulating: Not at all. But we don’t hang you dry for the public to scorn, mock and learn from you about lack,” Sheilah wrote.
“When you brag as a single mum who supports her kids, do we shoot you down that you are living off other people’s kind contributions? No, we don’t. We protect you from the shame of a mother not being able to support her children. So why the foolery? Why the ingratitude against Daddy? she asked.
“Leave the dead alone. My father paid my fees all my primary and secondary life and now you are screaming because you paid for one term? Really? My father made me and not you. Do not discount his contribution by putting yourself in the limelight of my education. Stella you are going to stop making yourself a saint by blackmailing our parents. I am ready to fight your half truths against them until I drop dead,” Sheilah continued.
