Internal Security Organization (ISO) has reportedly made it clear there will not be any meeting between Makerere University fresh graduate Annah Ashaba aka Ashana.
Annah Ashaba Ashana stole news headlines over her poem titled ‘I want to be Museveni’s Side Chic.’ (Read the poem here).
Days after the ‘I want to be Museveni’s side chic’ poem went viral , Ashaba met ISO officials.
Later, reports claimed Museveni would meet Ashaba over the viral poem.
Now, ISO has dismissed reports that Museveni would meet Ashaba soon.
In a statement, ISO claimed the reports that Museveni would soon meet the fresh graduate teacher were part of a plot to gain popularity and fulfil selfish interests.
“We have however established that stories have a different agenda and are working to serve the interests of particular individuals to water down the good gesture and patriotic move by the DDGISO [Deputy Director General ISO] to harmonize the working relationship with the disgruntled youth,” said the security agency in a statement.
“In our bid to clarify the report by Ashana, the Deputy Director General ISO Lt. Col Emmy Katabazi in a telephone conversation, he vehemently stated that, while they had discussions with Ashana, both parties resolved to always work together to address issues of national concern whenever 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.”
According to ISO, there is no need for Ashana to meet Museveni.
“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.”
