Lubaga north legislator Moses Kasibante has lauded President Museveni’s government for granting Ugandans freedom to drink alcohol whenever they want.

According to Kasibante, the move has saved lives of people who were drinking in hiding during Idi Amin’s regime who had banned some types of alcohol.

Kasibante who was weighing in the proposed Bill by Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze told CBS FM on Friday morning that he cannot support Nambooze’s Bill because he doesn’t want to drink his alcohol in hiding.

Nambooze and Kasibante who are good friends, crashed on the floor of Parliament when the later stood up on point of procedure challenging the Speaker who had allowed Nambooze to seek leave of absence to draft her Alcoholic drinks control bill.

Nambooze however says Kasibante was one of the supporters of her Bill and she was surprised to hear him challenging the Bill that could help thousands of people and families ruined by uncontrolled manufacturing and selling of alcoholic drinks.
