Kenya’s David Wakhu Wins Pro – Am

Tamale Mirundi has thrown another spanner in the works, medical information pills saying he could reject President Museveni’s new appointment as advisor on media affairs.

The sacked presidential spokesperson made the rabble-rousing remarks while appearing on Radio Star on Tuesday night.

Well known for his venomous attacks on Mengo, the Catholic Church and now State House where he served for 13 years, Mirundi said he is “consulting because I can’t rule out the possibility of rejecting my new position.”

The controversial activists vowed never to return to State House, adding, “Even when I am dead, I don’t want my children to go there.”

Many people including top shots in Buganda Kingdom had severally complained to President Museveni that Mirundi was damaging their reputations on radio stations.

Politicians and businessmen, according to sources, were giving Mirundi money to abuse and humiliate their rivals – a charge Mirundi vehemently denies.

The last straw that broke the camel’s back was when Mirundi launched a scathing attack on the persons of President Museveni’s assistants – Maj Edith Nakalema and Brig Proscovia Nalweyiso whom he accused of facilitating the plundering of State House coffers.

President Museveni subsequently dispatched deputy Special Forces Commander, Col Sabiiti Magyenyi to deliver Mirundi, who had absconded from duty, to State House.


Mirundi found the President and his assistants listening to the audio recording detailing the formers’ toxic accusations.

Asked by the president whether he was abusing alcohol, Mirundi went on the defensive: “That’s totally untrue. But I heard from a waitress at a bar along Dewinton road that she had been approached to poison me.”

Meanwhile, Mirundi yesterday continued to attack State House officials, saying they should not have harassed him as he was only earning Shs 800,000.

During the radio talk-show, Mirundi said he was sick and tired of being asked silly questions.

He blasted Mengo officials for engaging in “cheap talk” on radios instead of participating in commercially rewarding projects.

“I, Mirundi, can’t stoop that low,” he charged.

The former journalist enjoys a huge audience in the country due to his controversial and radical views.
