KAMPALA — Busiro County East legislator Medard Sseggona has said the Museveni trek is a mockery of the people especially the Ugandans in Kiboga.
Ssegona made the remarks while in an interview with a local television on January 6.
According to Ssegona, the government has not done anything in memory of the people that died in the war.
“In Galamba, there is no significant thing this government has done in memory of the deaths they caused by the war they started. There is no health centre; locals cross over to my constituency. The only road that used to link them has washed away,” he said.
However, the Deputy Government spokesperson, Rtd. Col Shaban Bantariza trashed Ssegona’s allegations as false saying Galamba is not isolated.
“The people of Galamba aren’t an isolated entity. We have over 90% of health centres IIIs all over the whole country,” Bantariza said.
Ssegona added that, “The people of Galamba fought for a bigger picture, they laid their blood and bones for Shaban to be where he is today. In Rwakitura and others in the generic string, there is piped water and electricity.”
He said that his heart bleeds when he sees people being imprisoned in a turbulent history they never contributed to as opposed to taking them forward.
“If after 34 years, the best you can still tell Ugandans is where you have come from, but have no idea where you are taking them, that by any stretch of the English language can’t be referred to as a success,” Ssegona said.
Sseggona on the Bobi Wine consultations standoff noted that he saw it coming.
“We decided to tempt the liars, illegal as the conditions are, we shall comply. We have complied including doing what they are supposed to do, like providing traffic and safety plans.
For now, we are not into violence. With the partisan police we have, we have dispatched a team to go to Naguru explore further possibilities. We don’t want to bring our country to a standstill even when we have the capacity,” he said.
