GENERAL OTAFIIRE: AM GEN. MUSEVENI’S MINISTER NOT FOR MITOOMA, I WONT DONATE EVEN KG OF MAIZE FLOUR TO DISTRICT COVID 19 TASK FORCE
By Wilber Muhwezi Kasibante
The Minister for East African affairs Maj.Gen. Kahinda Otafiire has revealed that he is a minister for President Yoweri Museveni not for Mitooma district as residents want to perceive it.
He said this today 30th April 2020 in a telephone exclusive interview with www.mknewslink.com managing editor. Kahinda was in Kampala while the managing editor was in Bushenyi.
He noted that he asked people of Mitooma to represent them in Parliament but they sent another person therefore they should look for their MPs to help them but not him.
“Am a minister for president Museveni not for people of Mitooma, Gen.Jim Muhwezi ,Prof. Kabwegyere and Dr. Chrispus Kiyonga lostÂ elections but they did not get ministries but president Museveni appointed me so am not for people of Mitooma,” Kahinda noted.
All the three MPs for Mitooma; Kahonda ,Thomas and Kamateeka have contributed to the task force but sources from the district say the task force is struggling as it has no fuel plus other resources.
The person to run to would be the powerful minister and Major General Kahinda Otafiire to mobilize resources and help people of Mitooma but he is defiant.
www.mknewslink.com pressed Kahinda on why he is not mobilizing the people of Mitooma living inside and outside the district and he said that it is not his work.
When challenged that contribution towards the fight of the pandemic is for everyone, Kahinda asked the www.mknewslink.com managing editor whether he has contributed for Mitooma task force.
