|Evelyn Anite – State Minister of Finance for Investment|
Since she joined Parliament , The State Minister of Finance for Investment and Privatization – Evelyn Anite became one of NRM’s biggest mouth pieces.
The 36 years old woman often comes to media not for national issues but to defend the 34 year rule of Yoweri Kaguta Museveni .
Anite became more known to Ugandans when during the constitutional; amendment when she said ” Her government has the army on their side, so no one can win over them”
Weeks later after the TOGIKWATAKO saga, Anite came out crying of how she was receiving death threats, which blew people’s minds who heard her lamenting how they had the army on their side.
That was a first win for the opposition.
Being a minister in charge of investment, Anite embarked problems while trying to unveil alleged loop holes that she had found in Uganda Telecommunication Limited (UTL) , which indicated that un-known people in the government entity had connived to steal money leading to it’s failure.
The fire mouthed minister later came out yapping that unknown people were sending her death threats , warning her to stop all investigations if not to be killed.
For a person who said they had the army on their side, This was a second loss to her and a win for the opposition.
The most recent one is when she declared to stand for the Koboko Member of Parliament. The NRM strong supporter and member , the incumbent and so called president’s favorite said “People power and the opposition have no place in my area, the gate is closed and only opened for NRM and Museveni”
Few weeks later, She lost the election in NRM primaries, which indicated that she had no influence not only in the NRM but also the constituency where she comes from.
Another win for the opposition.
