Chairman LC V Luweero district who is also NRM Buganda chairman ,Al Hajji Abdul Nadduli has said that Buganda Kingdom is likely to be banned if Alintuma Nsambu does not win Bukoto South MP seat.
Nadduli who is currently in Bukoto South campaigning for Nsambu said that Baganda should stop involving the Kabaka in politics if they want a stable kingdom and for their Kabaka to be safe.
He said that Nsambu potentiality should not be under estimated because he abused the Kabaka and advised the voters not to mix the Kabaka issues with partisan politics.
Buganda Kingdom spokesperson, Peter Mayiga said that Bukoto South voters should not be threatened. They should vote for someone who respects the kingdom and the Kabaka because during Obote’s regime Buganda Kingdom was not banned after an election.
Muyanja Mbabaali, former Bukoto South MP also said that he did not support the idea of Nsambu leaving his constituency Bukoto North for Bukoto south and said that he does not support him.
Alintuma Nsambu, is said to have used derogatory language about the Kabaka when he was refused to address a rally during the Kabaka’s visit in the constituency.
Nsambu however denied the allegations during one of his campaign rallies saying they are baseless and are aimed at tainting his political image.
“I am educated beyond Primary Seven, therefore I know what the Kabaka is to all of us Baganda. How then could I dare abuse such a person?” Nsambu said.
