Mukono Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke once described our lovely country-Uganda as a place where all things are possible, It is in Uganda, where Termites eat iron bars.
This is seemingly a Joke cracker, but indeed, it is Uganda where they can parade a former convict as a celebrity.
Celebrity is a noun that refers to a widely known person. That person can be a social celebrity, hero of science, business, politics, religion, a theatrical luminary; a big name in sports; a notable of the concert stage, a personage in the field of philosophy among others.
Uganda’s leading online News Paper –The Newz Post carried out an independent research leading to top Ugandans who have risen to celebrity status for the Wrong reasons.
We are not suggesting that they should be in jail or otherwise, but we are setting a reminder for the public to know who they call celebrities.
Hajji Nasser Ntege Ssebagala (Seya) – Thefty
Don’t think of his language buffalos No! His rise to fame came when he attempted to defraud US Banks only to be arrested and convicted.
From the US cells, the once mighty Political king maker received a heroic welcome at Entebbe International Airport. He was later elected Kampala City Mayor.
It’s crucial to forget his double standard tendencies and remind ourselves that he is the reason why Top political figure Dr. Kizza Besigye is flying high. It is clear that Besigye was unveiled by Seya with the infamous chant -Hajji Alagidde in 2001.
