Former Makindye East MP Micheal Mabikke must have been born unlucky. Snoops are saddened to report that the politician was recently destined to be appointed Deputy KCCA Executive Director under Jennifer Musisi.
Sources say everything had been done and security agencies had given their no objection for his appointment but things backfired when State House weighed in saying the man wasn’t good enough for the job.
We are told even Jennifer Musisi had given her no objection to being deputized by Mabikke whose hatred against Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago is well known.
We are told even Premier Amama Mbabazi had endorsed the move to make the Kampala Mayoral flop deputy ED. However, sources have revealed to us that state house aides loyal to first Lady Janet Museveni blocked the deal saying Mabikke is unfit to be deputy ED.
Their reasoning was that he was the chief strategist in the past discredited regimes of Seya and Sebaana Kizito who orchestrated scandals and dubious transactions at City Hall.
They argued it were his godfathers named above who messed up things resulting into dubious compensations to tycoons like Basajjabalaba. Sebaana and Seya’s regimes are the one which leased city markets to Basajjabalaba who later demanded to be compensated before leaving space for the vendors.
The other concern for Janet’s loyalists is that when he was still an opposition diehard, Mabikke used to be hostile to the first family members to the extent of abusing President Museveni’s parents during the radio talk shows. In fact he was one time detained at CID headquarters Kibuli after his talk show on radio Simba where he was alleged to have uttered uncharitable things about President Museveni’s late mother, Esteri Kokundeka. “He may be our sympathizer and good ally in as far as extinguishing opposition in Kampala is concerned but we can’t allow him to become deputy ED at city hall because he used to attack members of the first family a lot when still active in opposition politics,” sources quoted Janet loyalists at State House as saying about Mabikke.
They want the man to start as RDC if at all he is willing to serve under the Movement government.
