Government spokesperson, Gabriel Ofwono Opondo has just been approved again as the director of the Uganda Media Center in a handshake approved by Museveni who has just returned from China.
Ofwono who joined the media centre in 2013 after replacing Fred Opolot. He becomes Museveni’s longest serving mouthpiece following his term renewal. Ofwono is instrumental and tactical in his deceptive wooes of blindfolding the public. He literally could be an incarnation of the late Saddam Hussein’s mouthpiece called “Comical Ali” who would lie about even obvious things.
Opondo’s reappointment comes after his successful diversion of the BoU saga from the actual extra cash print to the possession of solar panels aboard the chartered courier service plane. Ofwono’s deception exhibited when he openly trashed the official police statement issued by their spokesperson, Fred Enanga and fabricated his own contrary version of the scandal.
Ofwono announced his reappointment in a tweet where he wrote, “President@KagutaMuseveni has extended my contract of service for a further three-year period effective today July 1st, 2019” and another added tweet, “It is with great gratitude to continue to serve the President, the Government and Citizens of Uganda”
