Maria and Nabagereka

Radio One Managing Director Maria Kiwanuka has been named Finance Minister.

Yes, Maria Kiwanuka is appointed Minister of Finance, the challenge is that she is coming on a Buganda Ticket, whether she will have the mandate to settle the long outstanding bills which are owed by the central Government to Buganda arising out of a deliberate plan to frustrate Buganda.

Wish her best of luck in the new job.
