As some words and songs go against odds and become anthems in the city, it practically wise if one said that Gender, Labour, Social Development and Culture State Minister Hon. Peace Mutuzo, Ebbango Baliwanika (setting grade so high!!). Like it or not, the soft spoken politician is busy living in your future dreams and aspirations with mansion estimated to have swallowed close to 1 billion shilling.
Besides the huge farm in the village, Community Development projects and the fleet of cars, Mutuzo’s Multimillion mansion has thrown the country into multitudes of mixed reactions over its nature, makeup and maintenance visa-vi the duration she has held the juicy office. This mansion is under surveillance, has a gym, no swimming pool but with classy compound.
This Four strode Hotel-like residence is located in one of Kampala City urban suburbs (Scene withheld) where she stays with less than 3 people in the main house implying that calculatedly each person naps on the entire floor.
Though it looks beautiful and fully finished, according to our insider, this mansion continuously undergoes several repairs on complains by Bunyangabo’s princess who says the colours no longer suite her standard over and over.
“Yes, we call her Mama here because she treats like her real children. All I can say about her is that unlike other politicians, Mama loves people regardless of their way of life or social status but that doesn’t take away her love for classy things, Mama ayagala Amassape!!.” Said our insider.
