Kamapala City is an endowed city not just in terms of nature but people as well. The famous city of seven hills has bred all kinds of people and in the field of politics, the city has produced all kinds of politicians. Imagine a district filling the house with Mubarak Munyagwa, Kato Lubwama, Kasibante Moses, Muhammad Nsereko, Nabilah Naggayi, etc. Comic, right?
But let us look at the duo from Kampala Central and Rubaga South. Muhammad Nsereko is in his second term as MP while Kato Lubwama is serving his first term. Nsereko reportedly woed Kato Lubwama when the later joined parliament. Nsereko, well known for his undercover work of bribing opposition politicians in the city on behalf of President Museveni, thought that Kato would ride on his popularity as a stage hoodlum, locally known as Dikuula, to win over Kampala the way Nassser Ssebagala did. Nsereko’s plan was to use Kato as a magic wand that would turn many Kampala politicians; afterall Kato was already DP Chairman for Rubaga, a darling in the TJ Solida group and close to the Lukwago camp. This calculation saw Nsereko take Kato to America for an all expense paid tour and shopping in 2016. Ever since then, the two have been in a marriage of sorts.
Kato has since then done Nsereko’s bidding. What Nsereko fears to do, he unleashes his “Dikuula” to do. When Nsereko disagreed with Hon. Muwanga Kivumbi, it was Kato Lubwama who stepped up to the challenge, unleashing a vulgar tirade against Kivumbi that left many shell shocked at how one could be uncouth and sit in Parliament. When Nsereko wanted to attack Lukwago, it was his trusted lieutenant Kato that delivered the blows. Kato has lashed his dirty tongue at everyone who has disagreed with Nsereko. The cunning Nsereko has always been behind the curtains, pulling the strings.
Enter Bobi Wine and People Power. When Nsereko attacked Bobi WIne and the People Power movement, it was only a matter of time before Kato would join the fray. Since then, Nsereko in typical style has gone into hiding and unleashed his “Dikuula” to come out and do what he does best; crack uncouth jokes. Kato has since lashed out at Bobi Wine, attacked people power, dressed up in the famous red beret of the people power die-hards and in a bizarre move, declared himself Chairman People Power in Kampala!!
Whoever has been following the two will know that Kato Lubwama is working on the orders of Nsereko. He is doing his dirty work. Nsereko wants to be seen as the cool headed NRM person that identifies with the opposition yet in essence he is an NRM operative hell bent on breaking the opposition. He thus uses Kato Lubwama to do his dirty work, afterall, Kato is used to scrumming through the mud!
