Mzee William Mukaira 89, a seasonal politician has warned president Museveni to reward the people he fought with whom he currently decided to leave behind.
Mzee Mukaira noted that Maj. Amanya Mushega and Professor Tarsis Kabwegyere were instrumental in the struggles to chase away Idi Amin and Milton Obote but they are now there and completely forgotten.
