The Minister without Portfolio Hajji Abdu Nadduli, has laughed off Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi’s alleged presidential ambitions as immature.
The bush war hero opines that the youthful legislator still has a lot to learn in politics before guns for the presidency. He was addressing journalist at Parliament.
According to Nadduli, Bobi Wine does not have the clout to become Uganda’s president.
“If we fought Kony what do you expect of Bobi Wine, is he stronger than Kony?
Naduli who also doubles as the NRM deputy vice chairman for central region maintained that the ruling party is not in anyway threatened by Bobi Wine and his cohort.
“If we didn’t fear Obote who was in government, how will we fear this young fella (Bobi Wine)? What experience does he have in this country’s leadership?
Nadduli said that Bobi Wine could as well be like Obote who came to power without experience.
“Obote and group made so many mistakes because they came to power inexperienced, no one would consult the other because they were all poorly experienced,” he said.
According to Nadduli, Bobi Wine and group should take the example of Museveni and his guerilla war fighters, and take the war to the bush, where it should instead of turning the streets into the bush.
“Did you hear us stoning people’s convoys. If you want to overthrow the government, look for a good bush and enter it, but if you keep coming to streets like elephants going through a garden, you are dead- No one will spare you,” Nadduli said.
“There is no government anywhere, that will look at you walk around majestically that you have come to overthrow them, how a fool can you be? My advice to Bobi Wine is that if he wants power by force, he risks causing himself and those supporting him trouble,” Nadduli said.
Nadduli is one of the few senior NRM leaders who have downplayed Kyagulanyi’s message of change.
His boss Museveni has however partly adopted the youthful legislator’s methods of mobilization by using social media platforms and writing letters to the masses, especially the bazzukulu or youth who largely make up Kyagulanyi’s following in which he tackles current problems.
