KAMPALA, Uganda: Self-proclaimed Ghetto president, Mark Bugembe aka Buchaman, has attacked the ministry of Gender and social development for hijacking his ‘Every Talent is a Project in the ghetto’ proposal.
Buchaman alleges that the new initiative dubbed ‘Ghetto go Talent search & health awareness campaign’ is his own project pasted by the ministry without bothering to talk to him or pay him copyright fees.
“I and my wife, Mama Ghetto, presented the project to Gen Salim Saleh’s Operation Wealth Creation (OWC). The good General forwarded the idea to the Gender ministry,” Buchaman states.
He adds that had he known that the ministry was going to snatch the golden idea, he wouldn’t have tabled it in the first place. “I didn’t know I was handing meat to the hyenas for safe custody. I thought I was going to be part of the project. Now, see how the powerful people have stolen from me the weaker soul,” Buchaman agonizes.
Now that the technocrats at the ministry have thrown him out of the project, Buchaman vows he is going to take up the piracy with the powers that be. “They seem to be mistaking me for a joking subject, but I can prove a fighter when my rights are being trampled upon. Are these people undermining me just because I am a disabled guy?” the ‘Lwaki Temujangala’ singer, fumes.
As part of the initiative, Buchaman states how he has been engaging the ghetto community in a football tournament that is still underway, which he says, the ministry wants to take over as well.
The Minister of state for youth and Children Affairs Hon. Sarah Mateke Nyirabashitsi, launched the new initiative at the Uganda Media Center on Thursday.
The initiative will focus on talent and skills development, health camps on reproductive health, mitigating effects of mental health caused by COVID-19 and drug abuse with voting commencing on November 11 to 19, and a grand finale on November 20.
“The Ghetto Got Talent Search and health awareness campaign presents an opportunity for the gender ministry to explore a different framework, for doing research that connects more explicitly with the ministry’s objective of supporting marginalized communities, in becoming healthy actors of social change through their various skillset by having community members actually engaged in and designing the research processes,” Nyirabashitsi said.
However, Buchaman has vowed to sabotage the campaign and summoned his ghetto army to counter react the promoters of the drive unless the ministry and his team reach an a agreeable consensus
