In a statement received by ChimpReports, http://davidbrownireland.com/plugins/content/jw_allvideos/jw_allvideos/tmpl/responsive/default.php the minister the incident and vowed that whoever had acted negligently was to face the law after Police finalized investigations.

Full Statement 

I have learnt with sadness about the death of a two-year-old toddler after it was run over by a vehicle belonging to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).

The preliminary briefing I have got from the management of KCCA is that; The mother of the child had been arrested and taken to CPS on the 17th of Nov for street vending contrary to the law and was later brought to City Hall Court.

That two relatives of the detained lady, that is; her mother and a girl came with her baby to see her at the court.

That In the course of their stay the baby strayed away and went down the slope and into the parking lot behind city hall which has mature foliage forming the gardens.

That a driver drove in and after dropping off staff reversed out of the parking and accidentally ran over the child, who just emerged from the foliage.

That KCCA rushed the child to Mulago but unfortunately passed away due to the injuries.

That, Police was immediately informed and further investigations are being carried out.

I wish to confirm that strong Action will be taken on whoever could have acted negligently depending on the police findings.

I have already asked the IGP and his team to fully investigate the matter with a view of apprehending anyone who could have acted negligently!

Law enforcement in the city is certainly necessary, and by arresting the mother of the child for violating the existing city law, KCCA law enforcement officials were doing their job. We encourage them to perform their duties but responsibly.

However, the death of the toddler is an act of negligence which I do not take lightly. The incident shows security laxity within KCCA. Whether the child had an attendant or not, the KCCA security should have the capacity to detect any movement within the court and its entire premises especially of a child reported to have moved away undetected from its minders.

I wish to most sincerely offer my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and as well apologize on behalf of the city leadership. I demand away forward from KCCA management on how such incidents can be avoided in future.

I further direct the KCCA management to take action against whoever is culpable and or could have been negligent on their part and not to just explain away the issue as police expedites its investigations.

Former opposition leader in Parliament, more about http://danceexchange.org/wp-includes/deprecated.php Nandala Mafabi’s remarks thought to be tribalistic have ignited fire on social media platforms, click http://choladathaicuisine.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.photon.php with many warning the politician of stoking ethnic tensions in Uganda.

Mafabi said Thursday that after the population census, “I have discovered Buganda has been taken for a ride by NRM government. This applies to other regions but for now I want to concentrate on Buganda.”

He gave 17 examples which he said show that Baganda are being taken for a ride “and they have kept quiet”.

Mafabi added: “In 1985 UPC government was overthrown by Gen. Tito. The minister then of security Mr. Rwakasisi was arrested. In 1986 Gen. Tito government was overthrown by NRA/NRM. The chairman of UPC Luwero then Hajji Musa Sebirumbi was arrested. All the two were charged for murder during rebel activities and had to hang. Mr. Rwakasisi was the in charge overall of security in Uganda and if there was security issues he was responsible. In short Haji Serilumbi was under Mr. Rwakasisi.”

The controversial FDC politician further said, “If Hajji killed it was on orders of Mr. Rwakasisi. After quick determination of Hajji’s case he was hanged immediately and Mr. Rwakasisi was not. After years NRM government knowing people have forgotten, President Museveni released Mr. Rwakasisi and made him Senior Presidential Adviser. With a fat salary and benefits. Why? Hajji Musa Sebirumbi was a Muganda and Mr. Rwakasisi is a Munyankole from Bushenyi. Nobody from Buganda has complained. Just support NRM.”

Mafabi belongs to the radical wing of the opposition.

While political observers say discussing tribes especially balance of power and equitable distribution of national resources is healthy for a democracy like Uganda, fanning tribal sentiments cultivates ground for ethnic violence.

The CBS radio was in 2009 accused of riding on a tribal card to mobilise and incite youth in Buganda to fight armed security forces on Kampala streets after Kabaka Mutebi was blocked from visiting Kayunga district.

The uprising left a trail of unprecedented bloodshed and destruction.

Mafabi’s comments could be aimed at reinforcing Michael Mabikke’s arguments of “tribal exclusion” at this week’s Free and Fair elections conference in Kampala.

Mabikke said the “continued dominance of national leadership positions by politicians from the western region was no longer acceptable,” urging the “constitutionalization of regional balance” when it comes to selection of the national leaders.

Mr Mabikke demanded at the conference that electoral reforms being discussed should also accommodate a provision for rotation of the county’s leadership.

He stated, “Since independence, the country has been dominated by our brothers from the north and western regions. The latter have done this for the last 28 years.”

“As we talk about electoral reforms, it’s important that we also look at affirmative action for the sidelined regions of central and eastern Uganda which feel left out in the country’s politics,” he added.

Mafabi said if hanging was the case, “Mr. Rwakasisi should have been the first to be hanged” and, “If to pardon all should have been pardoned and in worse scenario Haji should have been pardoned.”

He further alleged that, “During Chogm many ministers were involved in mismanagement of public resources. All those from Western Uganda were exonerated and former Vice President Bukenya from Buganda was taken to Luzira prison and the rest were free.”

The politician added that during the compensation of Haba companies of Shs150bn, “all Buganda ministers involved were censored and the main culprit Governor Bank of Uganda was left.”

Reactions

Ugandans reacted angrily at Mafabi’s remarks:

Ayebale Gideon: Now my comrade Mafabi, you seem to be thinking in tribal lines, which I disagree with you. There are many tribes which have been marginalised, like Karamajongs, Banyoro, etc, but it’s not good to think in tribal lines.

Hillary Kahoza: I’m glad Hon. Nandala Mafabi Nathan – A Leader of Our Generation took time to post all this. It is a really long post. Taking time to read it, I am rather disappointed in a leader I almost trusted.

This kind of argument is rather disturbing and misleading. This kind of propaganda can cause a serious problem, and such a leader in such a big position should concentrate on bringing people together rather than separation and hatred. I wish to inquire on the plan you have as a leader to solve the problem.

Tumusiime Moses: So going by Mafabi’s analysis when the government is making its decisions it uses the Banyankore-Baganda yardstick? Historical facts cannot be disputed but a leader of Mafabi’s calibre should not seek to exploit and gain political capital from such absurd situations. Surely the NRM government has had so many failures that one does not need to resort to inciting one group against another. If the mob that Mafabi seeks to incite started to act on this piece of absurd history, it would not even spare his boss Col. Kiiza Besigye plus some of his own relatives. Let us try to be both reasonable and responsible.

Aomu John: Honourable is not thinking in tribal lines but bringing into reality who Museveni is. Another scenario is for the Global Fund. Hon Muhwezi was implicated with Hon. Mike Mukula but the rest were left free and Mukula was sent to Luzira.

Musiimenta Starin: Hon Mafabi, your party has a slogan of “one Uganda one people”. I really think you have gone tribal by doing this which doesn’t bring out the party’s core values. We should consider things that bring us together not disuniting us.

Kachau Dan: I am finding trouble linking this pedestrian analysis to the Census results. For How long will leaders continue complaining about the past?? “A true leader of this generation” Ought to be Solution Oriented.

David Prince: Almost all incidents of genocide in history have been ignited by opportunistic politicians like Mr. Mafabi no one can argue with the fact that NRM has committed many mistakes over the years but looking at it through a tribalistic scope is not the answer. I was very disappointed with the divisive politics espoused in this post by a man who clearly has his eyes set on being president. So I pose this question to you Honourable: If you were to be successful in your quest wouldn’t you be president of the Banyankole you seem so intent on exterminating?
