Uganda’s Foreign Affairs minister and Member of Parliament for Mawogola County in Sembabule District Sam Kuteesa announced that he is retiring from active politics over the weekend and shockingly introduced his daughter as heir to the Mawogola County seat in Parliament.
Kuteesa said it was time the Old breed gave space to the new energetic young Genearation only for him to spoil the event by introducing his Daughter Shatsi Musherure Kuteesa as heir making the Mawogola County position hereditary.
Kuteesa has served as the Ministry for Foreign affairs for 14 years since 2005 and he desperately implored the electorate to stick to the NRM party, and support the youths who have better ideas for developing Ssembabule. His remarks were made during a community service initiative to clean up the various trading towns and villages in Sembabule.
As the Old continue to get scared of the new political breed of the People Power Movement, Kuteesa was compelled to further discourage the People of Sembabule from associating with the People Power brand and revealed that he will not tolerate the People Power pressure group operating in his constituency.
Speaking to the Electorate, Kuteesa’s daughter Ms. Musherure said her father was tired of speaking all the time and that it was time to give chance to the youth urging the residents to trust her to lead them.
Kuteesa was the Attorney General from 1985 to 1986. He was a member of the Constituent Assembly, in 1995. From 2001 through 2005, he served as Minister of State for Finance, Planning and Economic Development, in charge of investment, and from 1996 to 2000.
Aged 70, Kuteesa holds an Honours Degree in Law from Makerere University and is an advocate of the High Court of Uganda, having completed post-graduate studies in legal practice at the Uganda Law Development Centre and has over time been involved in corruption scandals.
