“I have lost everything because of my party NRM,,there is alot of unfairness in NRM as a party..you work hard and be committed to everything in the party for the betterment but never to be appreciated..I really sacrificed alot during the last campaigns where I even went for bank loans and started projects as a way of motivating the youths as a tactic of fighting the pressure group that had arose(NUP).Why NRM..I have lost alot because of you.. business..friends and fans bkoz of choosing you as my party…I thought president MUSEVENI was the commandant and his was always respected by his representatives but then it’s vise versa bkoz for whoever he directs to perform they do the opposite..” (Kusasira, 29.01.2022).
It wasn’t a long time ago, as Cathrine Kusasira was appointed as a Presidential Advisor in 2019 ahead of the 2021 polls to takeaway and be a musician favourable for the Yellow and be vocal voice to the ghetto and the ones who would follow Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. That was an deliberate act of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) as a way of swaying the public and using the image of her and Butchaman ahead of the 2021 General Elections.
However, it is now January 2022 and a year since the polls, which means the need and use of Kusasira is up. Her own office and space is maybe out of date. She was appointed as the Presidential Advisor on Kampala Affairs, got an office, a vehicle and a salary. It was to boost the ego and the party own ability to be viable in the ghetto, but also in the slums of Kampala. Alas, that was something, which wasn’t built on a mountain, but on sand.
Kusasira is now crying out loud. She is on social media calling out for money and getting refunded for her loans. The loans she took out … to support youth and projects on her own merit. Which means that the NRM wasn’t involved and neither the state. Yes, she was a Presidential Advisor and a member of the NRM. However, she did it all alone and on her own accord. Therefore, the singer and advisor should carry the blame and the debt on her own.
It is really pathetic the way she post about this yesterday and today on Facebook. She is looking rather ignorant and was high on her own supply, as she thought everything would be covered by the state eventually. As she was the Presidential Advisor and did so as a state representative. However, it seems that she had to clarify yesterday’s statement, which only making it more obvious.
“I did it because I love my party so it was for swagger this is dotcom generation infact I used that money to buy welding machines that I distributed to youth from different parts of our country this intended to have a good image of our Government to our youth who were being driven to bad acts by selfish minded people during election period who ever is using this propaganda is not real, the car the mafia usually talk about it was a gift from the president, I know mafia must come back with such videos to tint the message with in my recent post (kisajjagwe ne Nekikazi gwe) yo the real first enemies of NRM in fact yo the real enemies to my family and the orphans I take care of I will not keep silent to the propaganda being accelerated by the idiotic Mafia so I assure you that I won’t keep quite see my properties go like that” (Kusasira, 30.01.2022).
What Kusasira should know… is that she’s just showing what we all have said all along. That she was a pawn and a tool, which would loose value. As the President and his team only invited her in to be in the way and gain attention away for the People Power Movement. She was supposed to inspire and elevate a part of the public, which the NRM has lost. However, that wasn’t something she was able to or had the grasp of doing.
Kusasira just became another mercenary for the yellow brigade. It like she cannot handle the truth and think she was more special. She was picked for a purpose and that was it all. Neither was she elected or had the capacity to be on a ticket. No, she was just a pawn and got played.
Kusasira seemingly didn’t get that and thought she was a unique maverick of a politician all of a sudden. Like she suddenly could shadow-play and forge a narrative like other seasoned politicians, sorry but not sorry. She wasn’t one of them and the tide has turned.
Kusasira was used, played and is now left in the dark. She has played her part and have to dance to another tune now. Go back to her roots, since she’s not a grand standing or an important part of the NRM. Catherine should wake up and smell the coffee, but I doubt she ever will. Peace.
