The Embassy of Uganda in Canada has condemned the physical confrontation against the Minister for Presidency, Babirye Milly Babalanda while on her tour of duty in Canada.

Minister Babalanda while accompanying the Kyabazinga of Busoga on his Diaspora tour in Canada was aggressively confronted by one Ntege, a Ugandan living in Canada accusing her of supporting bad regime.

In a statement issued on Tuesday by the Uganda High Commissioner to Ottawa-Canada, Ambassador Joy Ruth Aceng , the embassy condemned the act describing it as unacceptable.

“I express my disappointment on the act of Mr.Ntege against the Minister for Presidency while on her official duty in Canada,” Ambassador Aceng stated.

According to Ambassador Aceng, this was illegal and irrelevant, therefore, the perpetrator must be made to account for his bad and humiliating actions.

“I strongly condemn this and I’m following it up with the government of Canada and he will account for his bad actions against the Minister, this is unacceptable,” Ambassador emphasized.

In her response to the aggressive act of Ntege, Minister Babalanda urged Ugandans in Diasporas to appreciate the extent to which the NRM regime has restored and built Uganda.

“Those who aspire to lead should realize that it’s too costly to rebuild a nation once it’s broken. The world has many examples. It’s better to build on what’s in place. I call for calmness and dialogue!”Minister Babalanda said.

Ntege’s attempt to physically harm Minister Babalanda was however restrained by other people who were also attending the address by the Kyabazinga.
