“Without me NRM was not going to defeat Bobi Wine. I would like to thank President Museveni for appointing me as his advisor, I promise to be loyal to him. My brother Bebe Cool told me that Bobi Wine has one trick that he beats them with, he does not respond to people who attack him. I would like to tell you that I have come with 45 tricks to end Bobi Wine’s political fame” – Butchaman aka Mark Bugembe on 29th October 2019
If Butchaman thinks his an big-shot, his not. Just like plenty of the other Presidential Advisors he will be forgotten in a minute or two. There was over 146 Presidential advisors before the appointments of him and Catherine Kusasira.
If they think they are special. They should be reminded about Boda-Boda 2010 and Abdullah Kitatta , who was useful during the campaign of 2015, but easy a victim and criminal after that. His serving time now for the duties he did while being at the reigns of Boda-Boda 2010.
That is why Butchaman should take it easy. He might be useful like Mbabazi, Bukenya or anyone else. His a fitting the program of having someone with knowledge and speaking the language the ghettos understand. But his not fighting for their cause, only pocketing money like the artists who made ‘Tubonga nawe’.
Butchaman can kid himself. Make him feel important now that he has a government function and a title. Still, his only relevant because Museveni fears the popularity of Bobi Wine. That is why Butchaman even was considered. Since, Museveni don’t know how to relate or be a part of the generation that grew up post-1986. That’s why the likes of Butchaman comes into the picture.
However, Butchaman doesn’t see that. He thinks he has it all figured out. The Ghetto and creed will carry him. Like he doesn’t become a sell-out doing this, just like the artists of the gig-song of 2015 wasn’t shunned for a while after the General Election of 2016. Did Butchaman forget that? Who knew right?
Well, Butchaman might be on his high horse, but he doesn’t know the play it seems. His part of a game he doesn’t know. He has to steady the boat, ensure that he gets to safety. Right now his burning his bridges and he hasn’t even started in his office.
NRM is using Butchaman, not Butchaman using the NRM. Even if Butchaman thinks it differently, because he doesn’t know this play. His a pawn played by the King. The King commands and the pawn has to obey. Therefore, when the pawn is lost, the King will not save him, but will do what ever he can to get “check-mate”. Peace.
