ISO – The Internal Security Organization has rubbished the claims that the writer of “Museveni’s side chic” poem is in plans to meet with the President soon.
Annah Ashaba, Makerere University fresh graduate, was summoned by Uganda’s Internal Security Organization (ISO) following her hard-hitting poem “I want to be Museveni’s side chic”, which caught widespread public attention.
This sparked public conspiracy on social media with some saying that sources from State House indicate that the president was open to meeting this Ashaba over her article.
“We have however established that stories have a different agenda and is working to serve the interests of particular individuals to water down the good gesture and patriotic move by the DDGISO to harmonize the working relationship with the disgruntled youth”. ISO said in a statement.
The Deputy Director-General ISO Lt. Col Emmy Katabazi, who had met with Ashaba days back said in a telephone conversation that while they had discussions with Ashaba over the weekend, both parties resolved to always work together to address issues of national concern whenever the need arises. Ms. Annah Ashana in a report posted on her Facebook page did not mention anywhere that she was interested in meeting the president, over an article she wrote, and neither did the Deputy Director-General ISO promise anything in that regard”
Ashana acknowledged that she was treated with utmost integrity, by the Intelligence Boss, and resolutions were made but did not include meeting the president at any point in time.
“Information from the two parties does not indicate that there was need to meet the president and henceforth disregard any information indicating that the president has picked interest or wishes to meet this youthful lady,
Ashaba recently penned down an erotic poem decrying the continued closure of schools, among other political issues.”
