Self-styled media consultant and presidential advisor on the media, Mr. Tamale Mirundi will never forgive whoever was involved in his sacking as press secretary to the President.
Speaking recently, on Top Radio talk show hosted by Stephen Dustan Busulwa, Tamale Mirundi said that if he had spent the years he worked for the NRM government with the late Idi Amin regime, he would be a very happy and rich man.
‘‘If I had worked with governments like that of Idi Amin Dada, I would be a rich man. If I had served under the late Milton Obote government, which valued and recognised the people who worked for them, I would be the happiest man on earth ’’ Mirundi said.
Tamale Mirundi served as press secretary to the president for 13 years. During this time, he did not only praise the NRM government, he also attacked and abused, anyone including NRM cadres who pointed out the weakness within the NRM party and the government.
Mirundi who was dumped as Press secretary last year would call such people ‘‘shortsighted and self-seekers.’’
He attacked religious leaders, cultural leaders, opinion leaders, ministers among others. He only saved the First Family.
