Gidudu fights off critics over Elderly house seat slot
By Kitts D.Mabonga
The outgoing national chairman NRM Elders league representing Eastern region and a central executive committee [CEC] member of the NRM party Mr.Dominic Mafwabi Gidudu has scoffed at his critics who claim that he was unfair to contest for the elders representative in parliament.
Mr. Gidudu told this website last week in Kampala shortly after attending a consultative meeting with the party electoral commission discussing the elders election road map.
DISCUSSING ISSUES OF THE ELDERLY; Mr.Mafwabi Gidudu making his contribution during the elderly aspiring candidates with the NRM electoral commission bosses chaired by Dr.Tanga Odoi last week in Kampala.
He said that much as he was a CEC member, it was his constitutional obligation and right to contest for the elder’s parliamentary slot representing Eastern region because that responsibility allows him to draw funds from the consolidated fund of the state a sitting legislator.
‘I don’t see any logic coming from my opponents who claim that as a CEC member, am wearing a big hat therefore I should not contest as MP which is wrong because as a CEC member, I don’t earn a salary as the job is purely voluntary therefore it was my right to contest for the parliamentary slot because as representative of the elder on CEC, it was time for me to join parliament and effectively articulate issues affecting the elderly’ noted the nonsense Gidudu.
He pointed out that if it was not cowardice of the highest order and panicking from his opponents like Capt Edward Babu and Capt.John Otekat among others, he will go ahead and grab that seat come 10th/10/2020 because he had done his underground campaigns effectively.
He used the opportunity to urge all the voters from the Eastern connection to vote for him because of his vast experience in political matters affecting the elderly persons and also his close relationship with state house which sounds with a big drum.
