The Kitanga Parish Priest in Kabale Diocese Rev. Fr. Gaetano Batanyenda is jubilating that God has finally forced the Former Minister of Security Elly Tumwine to remind President Yoweri Museveni about retirement.
While handing over office to the New Security Minister Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi on Wednesday this week, Gen. Tumwine revealed that after assuming his new role as Senior Presidential adviser on security, he will help Museveni to prepare for a “Peaceful transition of power.”
Tumwine said that Museveni would only achieve a long term stability of Uganda if he prepares for the peaceful transition of power.
The former bush war fighter who has been working with President Musevein since 1985 as a minister of Uganda said he would keep advising the president in order to save him from turning into ‘Ngambe Nyenka’ which literally means a dictator.
“It should be our duty to save him from the disease of being Ngambe Nyenka. He has served this country with diligence and therefore deserves a honorable retirement,” said Tumwine.
Now, Fr. Gaetano compared Tumwine to the Biblical Prophet Jonah and the Apostle Paul who were forcibly used by God.
Batanyenda said that God could have seen Gen. Tumwiine as a perfect choice to speak to Museveni about Uganda without him
On the issue of helping Museveni to avoid becoming a dictator, Fr. Gaetano said it is too late since Museveni is already one.
He predicted that Tumwiine would be excommunicated soon or later for daring Museveni.
Fr. Gaetano however challenged every Ugandan to take up the responsibility of supplementing Tumwine’s call for a peaceful transtion of power.
It should also be remembered that a section of top leaders in Musveni’s government have tried to challenge his “overstaying in power, ” but ended up parting ways with him.
