The spokesperson Kibuli Muslim faction, Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata has lashed out at NRA bush war heroes who keep on saying that they fought to librate this country so the country owes them gratitude.
He said those who went to the bush were never sent by Ugandans and should stop reminding us of their heroics.
“We are tired of those words ‘we fought, we fought’ so what if you fought? Who sent you to the bush? You went to the bush because you wanted to chase your deals and you have eaten enough…so stop threatening Ugandans,” he said.
His comments came few weeks after Gen. Elly Tumwine told Parliament to respect the bush war generals because they sacrificed a lot for this country.
Whenever he has come under criticism for his transgressions, Tumwine has been quick to invoke this line.
Muzaata made the remarks at the burial of Frank Gashumba’s father Colonel Antonio Kasumba last week.
He cautioned the bush war heroes to stop taking Ugandans for granted because nobody sent them to the bush.
“They should stop intimidating Ugandans. People are tired of this regime, Tear gas is used to scare away people claiming that they fought,they fought , we will not accept that at all,” the controversial cleric said.
He warned those in power who think they own this country to think twice because so many prominent people who had almost everything in the previous regimes are no more.
“In this generation people can talk arrogantly, remember Abdullah Kitatta had a chance to share and walk with princes and princesses, he thought he is one of them yet he was a no body,” he said.
Kitatta was the patron of Boda Boda 2010 and currently he is serving an eight year jail term after he was convicted of various charges.
Muzaata revealed that religious leaders are being threatened and targeted whenever they come out to give advice on some political issues.
