Tycoon Hassan Basajjabalaba yesterday left every one doubting when he revealed that he was to ensure that in 2017, Mzee William Mukaira and President Museveni are reconciled.
“Mzee Mukaira you mentioned something in your speech that you want reconciliation in the church and everywhere but there is un impending soar relationship between you Mukaira and museveni. I want to assure every one here that I will reconcile Mukaira and President Museveni” Tycoon Basajabalaba said.
Basajjabalaba said this yesterday during the burial ceremony of Lay can. Robinah Kekuruso in their home Rukindo bushenyi-ishaka municipality.
Museveni and Mukaira are sworn political enemies, Muakira belongs to FDC and is the immediate past chairman of FDC greater Bushenyi.
Museveni ordered the arrest of Mukaira after a key rebel of PRA Col. Edson Muzoora died at his home and mukaira was charged with murder and taken to Ruzira prison. But tycoon Bassajjabalaba and other Bushenyi leaders met Museveni and the president was forced to instruct DPP to withdraw murder charge against Mukaira.
Mukaira has never supported NRM government since 1986, by the time NRM took power, Mukaira was the chairman of Democratic party for greater Bushenyi.
The president was represented at burial by minister of wildlife Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu.
In president’s condolence message, he hailed Robinah Kekurutso for being hard working especially in farming.
He (president) gave the family 10M to cater for burial expenses.
