Amuria Woman Member of Parliament, Susan Amero is the latest People Power ‘recruit’ to distance herself from the recent appointments to a coordination team by founder Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, alias Bobi Wine.
Amero who is subscribed to the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM), claimed she had no idea she had been appointed to the coordination team prepared and presented to the public yesterday by People Power leadership, at Magerere, Gayaza, Wakiso district.
Social media reports filtered in claiming that the legislator had distanced herself from the appointments, and when contacted by Nile Post, she said the reports are true.
“Yes, if you have seen the reports on social media, it means it is true because it came from me,” she said.
On further inquiry to obtain her personal view besides confirming social media reports, Ms. Amero lost her temper and switched off our call.
Amero was appointed to lead the Teso People Power team ahead of the 2021 elections, despite being an NRM member.
She becomes the second legislator following Jie County MP Moses Bildad Adome, who was announced team leader for Karamoja Region, rubbished his appointment by people power leadership and claimed he was not part.
“Looking at the list, it’s surely a presumption by the people power group that whoever voted against the age limit is for them. This is not true to some of us,” said Adome.
“Whereas it’s also my right to belong to any political party, it is also my right to be protected from circumstances that may be of jeopardy to my roles as a member of parliament from NRM. I will request to know what exactly the People Power stands for, what they would wish me to do and how they expect me to do and how possibly it may be of help to the people I lead. Short of the above, I won’t be fooled to accept what I don’t see light in.” he wrote on his Facebook page.
