Denis Nzeirwe, this web http://craigpatchett.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/markdown.php the Rukungiri Deputy Resident District Commissioner has blamed the outspoken Kitanga parish priest Rev. Fr. Gaetano Batanyenda for causing the confusion in the NRM party in the district.

“Now Fr. Batanyenda has abandoned preaching about God and Satan, sales http://concernedafricascholars.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-direct.php the job he was ordained to do, as he is now all the time talking about president Museveni whom he criticises each other day that passes,” said Nzeirwe.

Nzeirwe who was the former Kamuganguzi sub-county LC3 chairperson in Kabale made the remarks while speaking to Chimpreports in Kabale town on Monday.

“The other day, Batanyenda was fighting Hope Mwesigye, who is Amama Mbabazi’s in-law. Now that the Mbabazi family don’t want Museveni, he is on their side,” said Nzeirwe.

“Batanyenda used to criticise Mbabazi over the Temangalo scandal but he no longer does that. He is a man without vision,” said the RDC.

This is the latest attack against Batanyenda who in recent years stepped up harsh rhetoric against Museveni.

He was once faulted for having campaigned against then powerful Agriculture Minister Hope Mwesigye till she lost her MP seat in Kabale in 2011.

It is alleged Hope Mwesigye said Batanyenda, a priest, should get himself a wife to be occupied.

Nzeirwe yesterday said Fr. Batanyenda should stop being jealousy of other people as president Museveni appointed him to the Constituent Assembly.

“Fr. Batanyenda was in 1994 appointed by president Museveni to the powerful Constituent Assembly. Was he voted? Why doesn’t he want others to be appointed the way he was appointed? He has no moral authority to question NRM’s decision to allow the party chairman appoint the Secretary General and Treasurers,” said Nzeirwe.

The ruling party on Monday voted for the constitutional amendments allowing the party chairman to appoint and disappoint the Secretary General, marking the end of Mbabazi’s reign.

Contacted, Fr. Batanyenda said he felt sorry for Nzeirwe.

“He is protecting his job and working hard to be elevated to the post of full RDC.”
