Ruth Nankabirwa, the Minister of Energy and Mineral Development was humiliated in Canada over the weekend where she represented President Museveni as guest of honour at an NRM symposium
A group of Ugandan emigrants in Canada sought to block Nankabirwa from addressing them—accusing the former NRM Chiefwhip of aiding human rights violations and corruption.
Social media footage showed a very frustrated Nankabirwa stranded at Niagara Falls Hotel where the symposium was held.
“We have no conversation with you. We cannot be allowed in Canada because you are from a country where people are dying. You are in the wrong place. Here is the minister Ruth Nankabirwa, one of the people who works for dictator Yoweri Museveni and she is aware that the world hates Museveni,” one of the activists said, telling Nankabirwa off that “we had to leave the country because of the mistreatment and abuse of human rights in Uganda”.
“Ssegirinya, Ssewanyana and other prisoners are rotting in prison, this is because of the injustices in the country,” another activist said.
Commenting on the incident, Nankabirwa described it as the politics of intolerance demonstrated by the emigrants.
Instead of protesting, Nankabirwa said these groups should be supporting the growth of their country and create investment opportunities for the people of Uganda.
