Are u aware that the NRM was behind the appointment of Owek. C P Mayiga as Buganda Premier? NRM cadres in Mengo such as the former Katikkilo Eng. JB Walusimbi, Hajj Kaddu Kiberu(Chief advisor to Kabaka), Levi Zzimbe (former BLB chief) and the late Mulwana all seconded Mayiga to take the Job.
This was done to prevent Mayiga from joining active politics, we are reliably told that Mayiga was planning to stand and replace VP Sekandi in Bukoto Central as MP in 2016.
Mayiga was the most prominent and popular among all Mengo ministers en therefore he could have a huge following in Buganda and further more Mayiga could eventually become running mates with Besigye or Mao to challenge Brig Muhoozi in the 2012 elections.
To avoid that the NRM supported Mayiga to become Katikkilo to keep him away from active politics. Mayiga played a role in the Sekandi vs Mbabali case which eventually saw Mbabali dropping his case against Sekandi after Mengo’s intervention.
Sekandi assured Mayiga he would pave way for him in 2016 .Sekandi also promised Mbabaali that Bukoto Central was to split into two en he would also stand in the new constituency. ……Story continues tomorrow
