KAMPALA – Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has revealed how she exposed a group of leaders from Busoga sub-region who were purveying false information about her to President Museveni.
Speaking during a talkshow on Kamuli Broadcasting Services Radio (KBS radio) on Wednesday, Ms Kadaga said recently, the President summoned her to State House and availed her a 7-page document, authored by State Minister for Karamoja Moses Kizige cataloguing several falsehoods about her.
“Recently, the President summoned me to State House and availed me a 7-page document, authored by Kizige, cataloguing several falsehoods about me. Fortunately, the President summoned Kizige and several other leaders from Busoga to attend the meeting,” she said.
“I disproved the litany of lies. Some of the leaders in attendance, such as Minister for the Presidency, Esther Mbayo, disagreed with the allegations. The author had not expected the President to show me the letter. Instead of succoring development for our sub region, some colleagues are engaged in such acts,” she added.
The Speaker’s remarks come weeks after she claimed that many NRM leaders were sponsoring party members to decampaign her during the party’s Central Executive Committee elections.
Ms Kadaga, who was re-voted 2nd National Vice Chairperson (Female) of NRM Central Executive Committee, said some party members were paying delegates not to vote for her.
