During An Interview
PRESS: Mr Seya, a lot has been said accusing you of crossing to NRM. What's your take?
SEYA: You know when many insects are walking, one off is kaasa so am kaasa (meaning eyawukana ko mugendo efuuka kaasa}
PRESS: Seya, thank God you are still alive. What do you want to say about your sickness?
SEYA: It's none of my business. My doctors talk for my disease. I do not die because I fear the coffin.
PRESS: I thought Muslims are not buried in coffins?
SEYA: You are not the one who born me (to mean you didn't produce me). My busiiramu doesn't touch on you.
PRESS: Why had you refused to talk to the press?
SEYA: I'm still too dead to talk to the press now
His Quotes During the elections
"The erection of the president is determined by the women because they are the majority"
About how Mao cheated him during DP primaries; -"He cheated on me during voting of erections, he used children to erect him, and when I ask him, he says those are the bakonjo pigmies from the country of Kasese. Otherwise it was insobokable (kyali tekisoboka) for him to won."
During his fights with Mabikke;- "I don't know his father and not even his parents"
Questioned whether he was born in Kampala City;- "No, no I was born here in Kampala; in Kisaasi, just 3km ago (for 3km away)."
When he started his own party; "First, I will make a speech in English then in our local government (to mean local language)"
Asked whether he was of age to stand for President, "Mr Mayor, are you 63 yrs old"? No, no, no, am not sixty fili. My mother born me in 1947 and …aaahh…that makes me sixty fili yrs. Yes, you are right."
His experiences during the presidential campaign tours -During the presidential campaign tours, the man didn't disappoint, he threw everyone in rib cracking laughter. Like when he was told to address the people of Akokoro and how happy he was to see them excited to meet Museveni, this is what he said: "I am surprising you are very many and am happy that we are being happy times. Because the other time I came, we were condolences." Did he want to say they were mourning the last time he was there? Hmnnn
His relationship with Desire Luzinda:-Leave us alone because those are our private parts. We can't share them in pubic.
About his life at Oxford University; -"You know at foxford, soxford, fosord…until the interviewer stepped in to help.
When asked who stopped him while he was driving;- "Can you imagine the police man who stopped me is even a woman?"
When he came late for a conference; "Hajji nga you are late?
Seya; You know we had a punctual (read puncture) because the ball of the car burst on the way.
While parked at a certain place with a parking notice that read "Vehicle parked at owner's Risk". Then he was trying to give directions for someone who wanted to meet him. Instead Seya told him "Find me here parked at Owners Risk." Heheh

Nutritionist Mandy Dunlop reveals eight secrets which help the Dutch keep the bulge at bay.
What is it about the Dutch and their great love of fattening food? If they are not nibbling on deep fried meat rolls they are happily scoffing down fat sodden ‘oliebollen'. Yet judging by their slim figures, they effortlessly manage to ward off the bulge. The Dutch after all, are one of the least obese populations in Europe. So what are their slimming secrets? As an expat nutritionist, I went on a mission to find out:
1. Portion Control
The Dutch love greasy foodstuff but have cleverly mastered eating in moderation. You will rarely see supersize portions served in restaurants here and one will often come away from a meal feeling satisfied as opposed to ‘'stuffed''. Indeed, portion control is a fundamental tool to weight management in the Netherlands. Unlike America and the UK, who have progressively adopted a
‘go large' approach to eating, the Dutch are still a good few years behind in these food trends.
2. Milking the benefits
Dutch people like to drink milk, a lot! Luckily, milk is a healthy choice if you are attempting to lose weight. Not only is milk low in calories, but also an excellent source of calcium, vitamin D and protein which have all been linked to weight loss. In fact, recent research has shown that frequent consumption of low fat milk helps reduce body fat in both men and women. Flavoured
milk such as chocolate and coconut are favourites with the Dutch and available fat free (0% vet).
3. Guilt-free snacks
Although the Dutch might have you believe that they eat only deep fried snacks, this is normally only a weekend indulgence. To stay in control of their weight, the Dutch prefer low-fat nibbles; Ontbijtkoek, Dutch ‘'breakfast cake'' is a popular choice. This scrumptious cake can be bought as a sliced snack and with less than 1g of fat per serving, is virtually fat-free. Another popular
bite is the eirkoeken (egg cake). These spongy delights are low in fat and high in protein- ideal for filling you up.
4. Good timing
Unlike other Europeans who traditionally eat their evening meal after 8pm, the Dutch prefer to eat earlier at about 7pm. Although eating late per se is unlikely to result in weight gain, it may however contribute to more rapid fluctuations in blood sugars, ultimately leaving you more susceptible to overeating. So, eating earlier may minimise cravings and help you to make
more sensible food choices.
5. Balanced lunch
Lunch in the Netherlands is usually a quick and light meal at around 12.30pm. A popular choice is cheese and meat layered on fresh bread. This provides a sensible balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat which, in combination, keeps blood sugar levels balanced. Having a portion of good quality protein such as ham or cheese for lunch will also leave you feeling more satisfied and less likely to snack in the afternoon.
6. Coffees not lattes
The Dutch drink a lot of coffee. In fact, after the Scandinavian countries, they are the world's largest consumers. Surprisingly however, there is not a huge selection of coffee choice available here. The Dutch prefer black coffee over commercial lattes and mochas, which is good news for weight-watchers. Black coffee is fat free with only 4 calories per cup whereas lattes can contain up to 300 calories. Perhaps the Dutch were on to something when they named the latte, "koffie verkeerd", meaning "wrong coffee."
7. Cheese please
The Dutch love this stuff. When you consider that Dutch people have been making cheese since 400 AD, it's had little impact on the nation's waistbands. The secret ingredient: calcium. Cheese is a rich source of this essential mineral which has shown in numerous studies to enhance weight loss. Cheese is also a good source of protein which boosts metabolism and can help burn an extra 150-200 calories per day. The key is to eat full fat cheese in moderation and choose low fat varieties whenever possible.
The Dutch travel almost everywhere by bike. These two wheeled contraptions are so well
ingrained in Dutch culture that on average, each household owns at least three. Just going
for a gentle 30 minute ride can burn 200 calories and if you're going out for dinner, be sure
to take it along. Research has shown that leisurely cycling after eating turns more of the
consumed calories into heat, resulting in faster weight loss.
