King Mumbere Still Being Misled, says Kibazanga


The State Minister for Agriculture, case Christopher Kibazanga has spoken out on the Jinja Magistrates Court incident where he appeared miserable, despondent and frustrated during the release and re-arrest of his elder brother Omusinga Wesley Mumbere.
The picture of Mr. Kibazanga taken on Friday while he was holding his forehead as Mumbere chatted with politicians from Kasese, flooded social media on Saturday with many people wondering how a senior government official of his caliber could look like a homeless orphan.
Numerous Facebook and Twitter users thought and passed judgment that the Minister was disappointed  because of the failure to save his brother from being rearrested after being granted bail.
Mumbere who is facing murder and terrorism related charges was given court bail but later picked by security on new charges.
Kibazanga on Saturday took to  social media, admitting he was both “bitter” and “frustrated”.
“I have read some comments on the thread (Facebook). Yesterday (Friday) was of course not a pleasant day for me but my bitterness and expression of frustration was not because it was clear that the King was going to be rearrested,” part of his statement read.
“It was because I heard and saw with my naked eyes and ears responsible people still misleading him.”
According to Kibazanga, some people from Kasese are misleading Mumbere.
“The question on my mind was why should our own people read the emotional state of the King and use it to flatter him. This was my bitterness,” Kibazanga explained.
