Former Vice President Bukenya to Nabbanja: Take it easy on the mafia; they despise being disturbed.

According to the former Vice President, there are too many mafias in government, and doing the right thing can irritate them.

Former Vice President Prof. Gilbert Bukenya has encouraged Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja to ‘take it easy’ in her duties so as not to irritate the government’s “mafias.”

According to the former Vice President, there are too many mafias in government, and doing the right thing can irritate them.

Bukenya made these comments on Thursday’s episode of NBS Morning Breeze.

“ I send my prayers to Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja. “I encourage her to do it slowly since these individuals (the mafia) aren’t used to being disturbed,” Bukenya explained.

“The mafia is a large organization that engages in corruption and will cut down any tree, no matter how deep its roots are. The mafia organization seeks to take control of the country. It will make every effort to destabilize anyone who is loyal to this country.”

Bukenya claimed that while in government, he attempted to bring up the subject of the mafia in the state but was disregarded.

“I was ignored, but haven’t you heard anything about them lately?” he inquired.

Prime Minister Nabbanja told journalists in July 2021 that she had been receiving death threats from unidentified people requesting that she ‘back off their deals.’

The threats came just days after Nabbanja rejected a variety of aid materials supplied to flood victims in Kasese District, claiming that they were of poor quality.

Nabbanja orders the IGG to look into the source of the substandard items given to flood victims in Kasese.

 

Bukenya has now warned Nabbanja to be cautious while dealing with government business, warning that the “mafias are genuine” and will stop at nothing to get their transactions done.

“I’ve started getting death threats,” Nabbanja says.

 

According to Bukenya, when trying to nurture leaders, the government may have made a mistake and cultivated some “arrogance,” which is why the mafia currently exists.

Bukenya may have been the first government official to admit to the existence of a “mafia,” but he is far from the last. Since then, a slew of authorities and private citizens have hinted at persons who have undue influence over government operations.
