Sophia Namutebi alias Maama Fiina has threatened to mobilise fellow witch doctors to quit the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party and join People Power.
In a meeting with fellow witch doctors recently in Bulenga a Kampala suburb, Maama Fiina, who is the president of the witch doctors community revealed that they spent sleepless nights asking the spirits to help Museveni win the just concluded presidential elections but it’s a pity he has never given them a shilling.
“I can get the president anytime I want, but it is very hard to lift the fetishes of each and every witch doctor and I take them to him.
“Right now we are gathered as a group so I will not hesitate to tell him our problems, if he fails to listen to us, we will leave him and join people power. we will only give that person who gives back to us,” Maama Fiina said.
She added, “We are very many witch doctors, we are actually more than 280,000, why should he undermine us. He should know that he needs people. Since president Museveni took power, the witch doctors have been fighting on his side, but it is a pity they have never got even a single shilling from him.”
“During elections we light the fires and call upon the spirits to help president Museveni get votes, so president Museveni should think about us,” she said
