Senior presidential adviser on media Joseph Tamale Mirundi has stated publicly that he is excited by election of Asuman Baralirwa as the member of parliament for Bugiri municipality constituency.
While appearing on top radio, Mirundi said he cannot congratulate a man who works in KCCA and is fighting government.
Commenting on Bugiri municipally by-election results, the former presidential spoke person had this to say;
“Am not happy for Asuman Basalirwa, i can not congratulate him, he works in KCCA and his fighting the government. Am just happy for Bobi Wine. Bobi Wine is now beating these thieves in govt and am happy for that, Go and read my book called “Bobi Wine influence in Uganda’s politics.”And if i was Besigye i would just run away because the Tiger (bobi wine) has already taken his place…I have written another book about him called “The current political climate favors Bobi Wine.” He has changed politics, many thought that when he enters parliament he will be like Kato Lubwama but his now setting another trend in politics. This boy is so impressive, he is doing miracles.”
Murundi on various occasions attacked the government of Yoweri Museveni accusing it of being infiltrated by mafias.
He is also a known critics of KCCA Executive Director Jenifer Musisi who he say is working to see the downfall of president Museveni by brutalizing residents of Kampala.
