Lillian Aber Stirs Up Paranoid

What's Kitgum Woman Member Of Parliament Up To?

Using her Social Media Platform, Kitgum Woman member of parliament made a statement that has been construed as unpalatable information meant to stir up tribal sentiments against the Baganda. Although this statement was  meant to show her total support to the Acholi team which was due to tussle it out with Buganda in the FUFA organised tournament  quarter final first leg, code named “celebrating our ancestry” the mean statement with  such a hash tag has elicited diatribes.

Just as it is a norm for participatory global village streets on social media, different interpretations and reactions are flying like rockets in the air.

Many including fellow legislators believe the MP’s statement was made in a bad spirit bearing in mind that currently Jakana Nadduli, son of bush war hero and former minister for general duties in Museveni’s government, Alhaji Abdul Nadduli,  is on remind at Butuntumula prisons in Luweero charged for promoting sectarianism and hate speech.

Advertising

Jakana, similar to what Lillian did, took to his online TV and made statements about the late general Tumwine, and painting a picture of what would happen to  generals Salim Saleh and Museveni.
