The deputy government Spokesperson Shaban Bantariza has said that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) would rather go back to the bush other than succumbing to pressure from Kyadondo East legislator and People Power movement boss, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.
Bantariza said that if Bobi Wine thinks that he has ‘Kasukali’ (sugar), the NRM has fire and they will respond to him with the same fire if he (Bobi Wine) continues with his activities which Bantariza said are aimed at distorting peace in the country.
Bantariza was speaking at the Kampala’s NRM leaders meeting at Nakivubo Blue Primary School play ground.
“If there is anything that wants to take us back from where we came from (in the bush), my guns are ready. I have three of them on stand by. Bobi Wine says that he has ‘Kasukali’ (sugar), ours is fire. For us we don’t use Kasukali, we shall use fire to put off that Kasukali and maintain peace,” Bantariza said in part.
Bantariza said that no should be misguided to think that NRM will handover power to people who want to sabotage the peace that they fought for.
On recent presidential appointments
Bantariza called the NRM leaders to order saying that they don’t want to hear conflicts in the party because everyone has their own duty to perform.
“We don’t want to hear those conflicts again. The one who appointed the presidential advisors (President Museveni) gave each of you a duty and responsibility. In the army, every soldier has their own ‘arc of fire’, I want each one of you to focus on your own arc of fire,” he said.
The meeting was held to resolve the conflicts in the NRM party following the recent appointments of Full Figure, Catherine Kusasira and Mark Bugembe alias Buchaman.
The NRM Chairperson in charge of Kampala central, Salim Uhuru organized the meeting and said that they have resolved to work together hence forth.
