National unity platform (Nup) party vice president Dr. Zedriga linah Waru has come out to apologise to Dr Besigye who he addressed as rotten meat not fit to be compared to Nup’s principal bobiwine.
In her podcast with big conversations, Dr zedriga rubbishes those who compare bobiwine and Dr Besigye politically.
“….You cannot, Besigye wasn’t a pop star, he was military, already dirty with his history and association with museveni. Bobi is clean plate , cut clean , clean meat. Besigye in politics was rotten meat , thrown over And cleaned a bit. He was their doctor and then disagree and these citizens don’t want to associate with any one with any attachment and connection with museveni” Zedriga had earlier said
Her reckless utterance angered many FDC and Besigye supporters who retaliated with bitters words.
Over the past week, FDC and Nup have been at loggerheads over Besigye and Nup leaders.
“I have now come to terms that Nup Leaders are indeed empty tins, empty kabisa, their agenda is blackmailing Dr Kizza Besigye nothing else . Hear the way she spitting nosense while stammering like a dog on h**t , total garbage ” Henry Chemba FDC activists posted
Zedriga and Besigye fallow out in 2000’s when zedriga’s husband was on run in foreign countries after things become tough for him , he was charged of terrorism for his association with reform Agenda movement which was led by Dr Besigye. When her husband was on run she announced him dead and even procured death certificate and I’m mediately started altering tittles to his properties. Dr. Besigye and others stood by him and got him a passport in foreign land .
Early this morning zedriga posted apologising to Dr Besigye and Ugandans at large claiming that the podcast was maliciously cut and doctored out the whole episode.
“A podcast reflecting citizens conversations where I participated with other citizens on a range of issues was maliciously cut and doctored out of the whole episode. It has caused heart aches, anger, stress to scores of citizens especially at this stressful moments. I sincerely apologies to each and every person, especially to Dr. Besigye Warren , my team, and all Ugandans. To erre is human and to forgive is divine”. Zedriga’s apology
However zedriga is not the only Nup leader who attack and asaluted Dr Besigye recklessly.
In 2019, during the official launch of DP block where Democratic party, social Democratic party and people’s developmental party and Jeema signed a memorandum of association, Nup’s principal Kyagulanyi sentamu attacked Dr Besigye when he accused him of sidelining elections he has been participating.
In 2019 a group of people power turned Nup activists led by Chief Mbowa and Mubiru James ambushed Besigye at Bulange where he had gone to attend a radio talk show , they abused him and asked him to hand over political space to their leader bobi wine.
Again in 2019, During Hoima city by election Waiswa Mufumbiro Nup activists attacked FDC president Patrick Amuriat Oboi sending threatening signals to Dr. Besigye who was coming to campaign for FDC candidate Nyakato A’s asinansi.
Former PDP president Abed Bwanika, Bloggers Lumbuye and kabuye Boston have been seen abusing, castigating and issuing death warrant to Dr Besigye for not throwing his Political weight behind their presidential Candidate kyagulanyi whom they address as God sent.
