Mailo Land Saga: Former Minister Al-Hajji Nadduli Says Musevei Is Playing With Fire

Former Minister and NRM bush war hero Al Hajji Nadduli has come out to warn his boss President Museveni that he’s playing with fire.

He was commenting on the issues of mailo land in Buganda saying that if the President presses any further, he might not like the outcome.

Nadduli further said that Museveni’s goal is not to settle the land wrangles. He instead wants to weaken Buganda kingdom which was vital in his rise to power.

The former bush war hero further said that he was disappointed with Mr Museveni who has constantly violated the treaties he signed with the Kabaka.

These agreements were signed when the Kabaka was still a prince. They expected that Museveni would hand over all confiscated properties of Mengo soon after capturing of power.

“I was present when Museveni was agreeing with the Kabaka to hand over all Buganda’s properties to the kingdom if we help him capture power from Obote. Something we did but he has since refused to honor and keep his word.” Nadduli said.

Nadduli went ahead to compliment the mailo land system saying it’s one of the best. He also added  Museveni and his people are trying to turn it’s advantages into disadvantages. This is because his people are the ones involved in land disputes.

He went ahead to caution President Museveni that he’s digging his own path to downfall if he decides to wage war on Buganda.

Nadduli cites some leaders who have crumbled after attacking Buganda. He reminded Museveni not to bite the hand that once fed him.

Mr Museveni is a staunch critic of the mailo land system especially in Buganda saying it hampers development.

Earlier this week, the two figures met at State House Nakaseero although they didn’t divulge thedetails of the meeting.
