Below is the official statement from the Minister himself.
Frank K Tumwebaze
Friends, greetings and happy New Year. Just to alert you to ignore and treat with contempt the rumour being peddled and doing rounds on various social media pages and whatsapp that am on suspension. Its all rubbish. It’s not surprising though. I know the group and their political master behind all this. After he schemed unsuccessfully to achieve his political maneuvers, he now sees Frank Tumwebaze and some others as his biggest obstacle. My assurances to him and his agents however is that; no amount of their cheap blackmail and mudslinging will silence me into submission. Am happy they feel me as a pain in their crumbling political infrastructure. I am not about to desert the NRM struggle. Unless they succeed in eliminating my life, a venture they have also been investing in, no amount of their cheap propaganda will kill my spirit and political activism ability in defence of the NRM revolutionary principles. Their cheap falsehoods against me are easy to discern and dismantle. But the short of it is that, they are desperate and believe that by targeting to tarnish the image of people perceived to be NRM and m7 strong activists, they will succeed in intimidating them into submission and therefore into silence. I pity them.
See the rubbish they have authored and promoted on various social media platforms and whatsapp groups;
