Former Executive Director of The New Vision Mr Robert Kabushenga has no sweet words for Uganda’s law making house after it stopped the Nyege Nyege festival from taking place.
Nyege Nyege festival is an annual social event and this year the festival that is scheduled for Thursday, 15 September 2022 for three days at the source of the Nile in Jinja district was first held in 2013.
However, there have been numerous concerns about the promotion of immorality and issues to do with homosexuality.
According to Kabushenga, the Parliament of Uganda has no difference with the Nyege Nyege festival because the top players in the house use tax payers money to irregularly buy ultra luxury cars at inflated prices but at the same time they are denying the tax payers an opportunity to earn a little money from their hustles.
Kabushenga said that this is infact a moral hazzard because Parliament should not forget that what pays them and what they use to spend extravagantly is this very money that the tax payers fight hard to earn.
A bitter Kabushenga further said that it is by far better to fill Parliament with water to rear crocodiles instead of having Parliamentarians who see everything with negative lenses yet they have not passed any bill that directly impacts the economy positively.
“It is common knowledge that Parliament is itself a Nyege Nyege Festival that runs in five year cycles. And using taxes to irregularly buy ultra luxury Benzes at inflated prices while denying ordinary folks an opportunity to earn a little money from an event is a moral hazard!” Kabushenga noted.
