LONDON/KAMPALA —Renowned Ugandan journalist and BBC News presenter, Alan Kasujja, has weighed in on the recent sanctions imposed on Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, by the British and US governments.

Kasujja’s commentary provides insight into the allegations against Among and the international community’s determination to hold her accountable for corruption and embezzlement.

According to Kasujja, Among’s troubles stem from allegations of embezzling government funds with reckless abandon, which she denies, citing political persecution due to her anti-homosexuality stance. However, the British and US governments have evidence suggesting otherwise, leading to unilateral sanctions.

Kasujja notes that Among’s denial of the allegations has angered the British government, leading to unilateral sanctions. He also emphasizes that the international community views this as a personal issue for Among, separate from her role as Speaker. “The Brits and Americans are clear: this isn’t about the Speaker of Parliament; it’s about Anita Among, period,” Kasujja remarks.

The journalist warns that the Ugandan government risks embarrassment if it interferes in the matter. “The message to the government is clear: this is about Anita Among, not the Speaker of Parliament. Stay away, or else your government and the country will be thoroughly embarrassed if you insist on calling us liars and what not.”

As the situation unfolds, Kasujja’s commentary highlights the gravity of the allegations against Among and the international community’s determination to hold her accountable for corruption and embezzlement. “This is a cluster thingy!” Kasujja exclaims. “The Speaker is in trouble, and her supporters are in denial. But the evidence is mounting, and it’s hard to ignore. This is no longer just a Ugandan issue; it’s an international scandal.”
