After labeling events promoter Balaam Barugahara as a “useful idiot” on a local television program, the Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze has given the true meaning of the term. Now through her Facebook page, the legislator explained why she had to call Balaam a useful idiot and what the term means. She said, in wikipedia a useful idiot is defined as a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause’s goals, and who is cynically used by the cause’s leaders.“ For example a dog is a useful idiot when it’s used by man to hunt down other animals. Such people are useful to the oppressor,” Nambooze said on Wednesday. The genesis of it all came when the Mukono MP felt irritated by Balam’s suggestions on the topic hence throwing jabs at the events promoter something that set social media ablaze.
