A month ago, three of Mukono municipality legislator’s political Aides; Mawanda Allan, Kiyimba Fred and Arafat Kanakulya threw in the towel and Left Hon Betty Bakireke Nambooze’s team accusing her of poor payment.
It is alleged that the three were scraped off pay roll by Mp since August last year and we’re replaced by her son-in-law. Nambooze had promised to pay them directly but it’s a promise she has never fulfilled till today.
A close source reveales that after leaving Nambooze, two of them chose to work with Mukono district woman representative Hon Nabukera Hanifah.
According to them, they moved from Nambooze camp in search for greener pastures. They also appreciate the time they worked with her as it helped them polish their street and market politics.
“We are still NUP though we are no longer working for her after her failure to pay us for eight months now. We have responsibilities to meet thats why we moved on” Aides noted
A source reveals that Allan Mawanda has been one of Betty Nambooze’s strongest pillar having worked as her Public Relations Officer for quite a number of years representing Hon Bakireke on political functions and radio talk shows especially during the period Nambooze spent bedridden after the parliamentary ruckus that happened in 2017 over the constitional amendment. Kiyimba worked for her for over 12years as her driver and Arafah has been her IT expert.
It is believed that Kiyimba and Arafah are currently working with Mukono district woman representative Hon Hanifah Nabukera who is paying them handsomely while Mawanda resorted to farming and brick laying.
It is also alleged that it is MP Nambooze’s habbit of disposing solders every after election. Kiyimba and Arafah were both replaced with Mp’s Son Jeff Kisawuzi and Joseph Bomboka.
