Wakiso district council meeting was yesterday evening turned chaotic after an opposition councillor referred to President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as ‘Bosco’ as she was debating a council resolution.
Zamu Kyeyune, the Nabweru Division representative, who had risen to inquire about the functionality of toilet facilities at the district headquarters, ended up diverting from the topic under discussion.
She asked why the Buganda king (Kabaka) Ronald Muwenda Mutebi’s portrait in the council chambers was so faded and old compared to that of the president.
“Mr speaker let me take this opportunity to ask the Works committee chairperson why the Kabaka’s portrait hanged in this chamber is more faint than that of Bosco [Museveni]?” she said.
‘Bosco Katala’ is a derogatory name that many Ugandans on social media adopted in reference to President Museveni following the Arua arrests which saw a number of legislators and their supporters detained and later charged with treason.
