The deputy government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo has described Makerere’s History Professor that he is intellectually dishonest.
“It is very sad to find some intellectual brains from our universities to come on a national radio like this and you speak like you are speaking,” Said Opondo on the capital gang.
Professor Ndebesa was speaking on the recent election violence in Ntungamo where he blamed the Inspector General of Police for siding with one side that had provoked the acts.
“Ntungamo lies in Mpororo and we have had our historical discontentment. Mpororo was cheated by the Rwanda kingdom and Ankole kingdom and the bahororo cannot just keep quiet.”
He added that Ntungamo lies in the Mpororo region whose history does not allow injustices.
“You cannot do anything provocative to a muhororo and you walk away with it. Omuhororo tokumweyarira okamweshweeka,” Mwambusya added.
Ofwono Opondo said he was not in support of the violence although he was bitter with professor’s presentation.
“I don’t condone NRM people who use violence that should not have been the day for NRM to distribute T-shirts, posters on a day when another candidate is having a rally. I don’t agree with the fact that when a presidential candidate is having a rally, other people should not appear,” Oponda said.
In his response, Prof. Mwambusya Ndebesa said it was at the discretion of the listeners to decide who was a mole between him and Ofwono Opondo.
“Whether fake or not fake, the listeners out there will know who is fake. I am not going to enter any argument with him, it is up to his discretion to say I am fake but for whether I am fake or not, let the listeners decide. I know Ofwono is the most intellectual and wiser than all of us in studio, that is why he was given a job as the information disseminator,” responded Mwambusya.
