Minister Namuganza threatens to bring Kadaga down

Lands state minister Percis Namuganza has spit fire and threatened to disperse all those wedging their efforts to fight her.

Speaking to our Insider, Minister Namuganza warned the speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga to stop poking her nose in her business otherwise she is touching a wrong button.

“Kadaga needs to mind her business but if she doesn’t know I don’t fear her and have capacity to bring her down because I have fought more battles to get where Iam today. Therefore if she thinks she can swing I the chair and begin fighting me, then she is mistaken.” Namuganza stated.

The vocal lawmaker insists that the decision made by the Busoga parliamentary caucus to suspend her over what her colleagues described as unbecoming conduct was baseless and biased.

At a meeting held at government chief whip’s boardroom at parliament, 13 out of 32 members in attendance also resolved to institute criminal summons on grounds that Namuganza threatened to harm their king, Kyabazinga William Wilberforce Gabula Nadiope IV and speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga.

Bukooli North MP and caucus lawyer Gaster Mugoya Kyawa read the resolutions, which include banning of Namuganza from caucus among others.

The caucus accuses Namuganza of threatening as well as inciting her voters to kill, injure and harm the Kyabazinga and Kadaga at a rally she held at Ivukula in Namutumba district last week.

Namuganza allegedly insulted the Kyabazinga and Kadaga after installing a new chief in her Bukono constituency behind her back, which to her was a serious issue.

At a function to launch boreholes in Bukono, Namuganza reportedly told off Kadaga and Gabula to concentrate on ‘fighting jiggers in Kamuli’, which to her are a serious threat than ‘poking their noses’ into Namutumba affairs.

“Kadaga should have declared war on the famine and drought that has hit Busoga. She should have declared war on jiggers that attacked Kamuli. But for her to come and declare war on me, I will also declare war on her because she isn’t immune from death,” Namuganza said.

According to video recordings, Namuganza rallied her voters in Bukono to use stones and sticks to chase away the Kyabazinga if he ever goes back to that area in her absence. The caucus and some people within Busoga sub-region have since protested against Namuganza’s attack to the Kadaga and Kyabazinga arguing that her actions contravene section 83 of the Penal Code Act.
