The newly appointed presidential advisor, Ms Catherine Kusasira has declined to meet Kampala NRM party leaders especially, Mr Salim Uhuru (Kampala Central NRM Chairperson).
The local artiste who President Museveni appointed last month as his advisor on Kampala Affairs told NTV on Saturday that as an advisor, she is more superior to any of the NRM party leaders in Kampala and therefore they have to write to her formally if they want to meet her.
“The position I have is more superior whether they want it or not. They have to formally write to me if they want me to meet them. To be a senior presidential advisor, it means I’m above them. They have to request me to go meet them to see how we can develop Kampala,” the Sonyiwa Bano singer said on Saturday during the launch of an NRM youth group in Busabala.
During the function, Ms Kusasasira asked the youth to vote for Mr Museveni in the 2021 presidential elections.
President Museveni last month appointed Kusasira and singer Mark Bugembe popularly known as Buchaman as his advisors.
Buchaman who has been doing music for more than a decade, starting out as Bobi Wine’s wingman in the Firebase Crew, was appointed Museveni’s envoy on Ghetto Affairs which appointment is perceived as move by President Museveni who has been in power for over three decades to endear himself to the ghetto people ahead of the 2021 presidential elections.
After their appointment, Mr Uhuru said he would invite Kusasira and Buchaman for a formal introduction today (November 9) since he’s the party leader for Kampala central.
"I am the elected chairman for NRM in Kampala central and there is no doubt about that. If she says she's my boss then she should convene a meeting for NRM party in central and I'll believe she's my boss," Mr Uhuru told NTV in a phone interview.
