Nankabirwa, Bahati survive copter crash in Kabale

Two senior cabinet ministers had their hearts in their mouths on Friday evening after a helicopter they had chartered crash-landed soon after take off in Kabale district in western Uganda. 
Government chief whip Ruth Nankabirwa and state minister for Planning, David Bahati and Rukiga Woman MP, Caroline Kamusiime Muhwezi were aboard the helicopter registration number 5X-KEG.

They were headed to Rukiga district to attend a belated International Women's Day event celebrations at St, Barnabas secondary school Karujanga in Katuna town council, Kabale district. Nankabirwa was the guest of honour at the function.
Alex Rukundo, an eyewitness says that the helicopter flew for about 300 meters off the ground and suddenly lost balance. Rukundo says that it started to suddenly lose height as it quickly descended back on the ground. In the process, it destroyed electricity wires. 

He says that the pilot struggled with the helicopter until it made an emergency landing. Immediately, all who were on board jumped out unhurt. 
The helicopter belongs to Kampala Executive Aviation and was being piloted by two South African pilots, Chris Dewit assisted by Rowen Mcharry. The incident occurred at about 6:30 pm at Kabale golf course on Makanga hill, Kabale municipality. 

After the incident Nankabirwa and Bahati cancelled the journey and went to White Horse Inn hotel.
Addressing the residents of Kabale, Nankabirwa said President Museveni has lots of money, power and other resources and hence cannot be dislodged from power by anyone.
Nankabirwa says no other person in the country wields as much power or has 'other resources' like President Museveni, the only capable leader pushing Uganda to the promised land. 
She mocked the opposition for their wasting time in futility last year to oppose the amendment of the Constitution to lift the presidential age limits.
In December last year, 317 MPs voted in favour to lift the presidential age limits, a move many a commentator viewed as removing the last legal hurdle for President Museveni to seek for reelection.
During the same amendment, the MPs also extended their term of office and that of the presidency from five to seven years.
The amendment has since been challenged in the Constitutional court and hearing of the case started today at Mbale High court.

Poor Nankabirwa is convinced Museveni owns more money, power than Gadaffi, Mubarak etc!

Most of these village idiots shouldn’t even be listened to anyway.

'' Nankabirwa said M7 has lots of money, power and other resources and hence cannot be dislodged from power by anyone.''

I believe many can tell the physical age of this sycophant by the number of wrinkles on it's face but what we cldn't tell is mental age however with it's mouth open it may as well be retarded.

Why wld Uganda miss such a useless thing out of the picture , The nation wld be celebrations.

The declaration of this woman is a proof of premature intellectualism. A lot of money looted from the public treasury. Power grabbed by shedding blood.

Institutions tailored to serve his will. The security apparatus tribally trimmed to protect his power.

That's how Ugandans are under gun point by a dictator. The incapable leader whonis misleading Ugandans from the promised land.

Blaise Compaore's regime in Burkina Faso had the same view point like this opportuniste lady,but fled from the unarmed population. There so many examples to give but the rest is up to these people to look around us and learn the lessons.

In other words, this Nakabirwa cannot be a Ugandan. Between Qaddafi (RIP) and Mr. M7, who had the most money and power Nanka?

And what does not shock me about this lady anymore is: in February, when she appeared at the NBS- Thursday 10:00pm, "Front-liner" Talk Show", like a Scarlet woman. Hon Miria Matembe and other panelist were speechless.

In any case Hon Nanka, except our sweat and blood (tax), where-from does Mr. M7 get the lots of money?

Unless of course he is an extortionist, fleecing foreign investors (industrialists).

Otherwise, except his third world cattle ranches, Ugandans are not aware of any of Mr. Industrial complex where he mints that lots of money.

I suppose Butabika Psychiatry Facility is not yet full.

Otherwise, some of our current politicians like: Hon Nanka and Beatrice Anywar, need to be straight jacketed, belted and wheeled into the "Isolation Ward".

Eish! Otherwise one day when pushed to the wall, they may start throwing their shoes at the media Camera men and women, or worse.

A helicopter is a very convenient but unforgiving piece of equipment. It can at times possess a mind of its own, baffling even the well-trained pilot.

Travelling in a helicopter is like travelling in a lady's handbag. You never now what is inside it.

Or if it is yours, you might search for a particular item and not find it although it will be sitting in one of the nooks. Beware traveller!
