Often times, his political opponents have accused him of utilizing his top position to sweet-talk his deemed nemeses into loyalty.

His trick, critics say, has been silencing the noisiest and most uncooperative members especially within the NRM by appointing them to ministerial posts, while at the lower level, as RDCs, CAOs etc.

There they can concentrate more on the bread than talking: hence — you don’t talk when you’re mouthful, so they say.

State Minister for Economic Monitoring, Hon Henry Banyenzaki has not been left out by this bread syndrome, according to some of his colleagues at Parliament, and they recently told him off, he had been bought by the president like a commodity.

It all started at a recent conference in Kampala where the Rubanda West MP accused new MPs for slowing down Parliament business and national development because they lacked sufficient training.

He noted that most of the new members were too inexperienced to understand basic things like the Millennium Development Goals.

In attendance, however, were a few of the new MPs who immediately shot back, labelling him a president’s puppet.

“As young a student, I always aspired to be like Hon Banyenzaki. He is one of the people that inspired me to come to parliament,” commented Budadiri East MP, Hon Isaiah Sasage at Parliament on Monday.

“He used to be a principled legislator and known for not mincing his words on matters concerning people’s interests even if it meant confronting the President. But that was until he was appointed minister.”

Sasage went on, “Today I look for the old Banyenzaki I always craved to emulate in Parliament but I don’t see him.”

The minister grabbed the microphone mike and defended himself saying that he was still the old assertive Banyenzaki even in cabinet.

He stressed that he was even pushing to open up all cabinet meetings to the public by allowing them full media coverage.
