The continued bickering between Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja and Kakumiro District LCV Chairperson Joseph Senkusu Sentayi has left members of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party divided.

The bitter fight between the two NRM bigwigs went public on Saturday, July 22, 2023, when Nabbanja appeared on her own radio station, Kakumiro Community Radio (KCR), at 6:30 a.m. and started attacking and slandering the district LCV Chairperson and his group for defying her directive.

The latest feud arises from Nabbanja’s directive to all Government schools not to charge parents any charges, arguing that everything is catered for under the Universal Primary Education (UPE) and Universal Secondary Education (USE) programs, something the LCV Chairperson and other district leaders disagree with.

Additionally, The district political leadership has been encouraging parents with children in Government schools to be cooperative and support teachers who are not yet on Government payroll. The leaders argue that it will help the children get the better education they deserve.

However, In her verbal artillery, Nabbanja claimed that Headteachers of UPE and USE schools are always thronging the district Chairperson’s office with ‘brown envelopes’, suggesting that the money schools are getting from parents is shared between the head teachers and the district chairperson.

The PM asked Sentayi to quit his LCV position if the money in his office wasn’t enough. In another leaked message to Sentayi, Nabbanja told the LCV Chairperson that “from today I know you don’t know what you’re doing.”

In conclusion, Nabbanja also claimed that she spent Shs63m to facilitate Sentayi’s campaigns in 2016, but he (Sentayi) should ‘feel free’ because “I don’t need any refund, but I had to inform the public for them to know who you are.”
