Even if he gets the ministerial position, Batte says Mao can’t influence how Museveni does his things in the country.
“Museveni likes buying old things which have no use. He likes keeping things that will never have any use. What is Mao going to add to NRM? Nothing. He has absolutely zero influence on how Museveni is going to be doing things.”
However, Batte says he understands Mao because he has been opposing Museveni for 30 years without success. It’s only time for Mao to maybe cross over to join those he has been fighting.
“What you saw was something between Museveni and Norbert Mao, not NRM and DP. I understand Norbert Mao. You have lived 30 years opposing the man, but he is going nowhere. The only way Museveni is going to leave Statehouse is when he is dead.”
However, some members of the public have opposed the fact that Batte to is calling Mao of no value.
“Just because something has no value to you doesn’t mean it doesn’t to the other person as well. Mao was purchased with a whole ministerial position and other things that we don’t know. This shows that he is worth more… Perhaps he was a spy and now he got rewarded,” a one Kataike Matha reacted.
“This is not right. Mao’s head if compared with yours, you may be placed in Karamoja. Making such a hard decision for a person of his profile should not be taken easily. Whatever it is, he is more capable and knowledgeable than all the noise makers on twitter here,” a one Eddie Ojara said.
