Nabbanja was being interviewed on NBS TV in Uganda where she claimed that Kenya has extreme challenges when compared to Uganda as she praised President Yoweri Museveni’s government.
During the Tuesday night, January 25, interview Nabbanja insinuated how Kenya was confronting extreme problems, telling the show hosts that Kenyans were affected by winter.
The Prime Minister was defending President Museveni’s track record by drawing comparisons to Kenya.
“We have a very good country compared to other countries, just go to Kenya here and see. They have winter, and we don’t,” Prime Minister Nabbanja stated.
The Ugandan PM praised President Museveni’s National Resistance Movement (NRM) administration for the 36 years of peace and prosperity and she urged Ugandans to support their government.
“The government has constructed roads. You can move from Busia to Bunagana on the tarmac. If you are giving credit, you would give NRM a lot of marks there,” she added.
Nabbanja further noted that Uganda heavily relied on importing products from Kenya and now the country was among other African countries which are exporting products to other states on the continent.
“Do you know that the trend has changed? Previously Uganda would import everything from Kenya. We are now exporting a lot to other African countries,” she stated.
Her comments rattled a section of Kenyans who questioned her credibility and also pointed out that Uganda was no match for Kenya in matters of economic growth.
Some Ugandans also threw PM Nabbanja under the bus following comments she had previously made on national TV.
“But why do they always give her a platform to embarrass the country. We already are in mud over a lot of nonsense,” a Ugandan named Noreen Agnes stated.
“Madam Robinah here wakes up every day and looks for a new way to embarrass Uganda,” another Ugandan, city of Florence stated.
