A video has made it’s way to social media where Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa is seen sending a scathing message and warning to the NRM historical for the continuous belittling of the parliament he leads.

Tayebwa who is the MP for Ruhinda North in Mitooma district became Deputy Speaker after the death of former Speaker Jacob Oulanyah in March 2022. At the time Oulanyah died, Tayebwa was government Chief Whip and Anita Among was Deputy Speaker, so as Anita upgraded her ranks to Speaker of parliament, Tayebwa dumped the Chief Whip job and joined the race for Deputy speaker which he won.

Both Tayebwa and Anita who are at the help of the 11th parliament are former FDC members but they made their way for the favorite side of the big man who has entrusted in the ranks of NRM.

According to Tayebwa, the questions of Uganda might be the same but the answers are different. He goes ahead to cryptically say the questions of 1986 when some people came from the bush might be the questions of today but the answers are different.

Just like other Ugandans, Tayebwa thinks it’s time we let go of the narratives of ‘We Fought, we went to the bush’ mostly said by majority of Museveni’s bush war historicals who even some times use the slang of we fought to threaten people in Uganda.

“Answers are not those one’s where you have to remind us that you came from the bush, you had guns, no the narrative is totally different. I told one of them that if you had your disagreements, i was born on 10th November 1980 i wasn’t part of your disagreement, we have our own disagreements today”-a visibly furious Tayebwa says.

Tayebwa further says the bush war veterans normally chide to the fallacy by claiming that because the revolutionists are no longer to the forefront in parliament, the house is dead and no longer influential. He says the current generation which is highly educated needs to challenge the bush war revolutionists who took over power and managed a country without even going to school.

“Because in parliament revolutionaries are no longer at the forefront therefore parliament is dead, who told you, so we need to challenge these people and i hope you journalists ca help us challenge these people. I have a parliament where i have very young people with PhDs, masters and you say they can not manager Uganda when you had people who had not gone to school taking over power and managing a country”- says Tayebwa
