What is wrong with someone vending grasshoppers on Uganda Airlines? Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga

Buganda Kingdom’s premier, Charles Peter Mayiga has come out to question why a fuss is being made about a certain Ugandan who was caught vending grasshoppers on Uganda Airines over the weekend.

A one Paul Mubiru appeared in a video that went viral on social media while selling grasshoppers inside a Uganda Airlines plane.

This had many people wondering how this was possible adding that it only cast a bad image of the infant airlines.

This saw the minister of Works and Transport, Gen Katumba Wamala call for the suspension of all the staff members who were available as this incident happened.

However according to the Katikkiro, this is creating a storm in a cup that is unnecessary.

“I fail to understand the fuss about Paul Mubiru vending Nsenene on a Uganda Airlines flight to Dubai. All airlines vend lots of things in-flight. I have witnessed passengers doing forex exchange transactions on board many times. It’s common to see passengers carry their own food onto the plane – which is cleared by the ground crew.”

“Travellers on buses always vend food and other items. If the carrier disapproves of vending they should simply state so – otherwise those who bought the insects appreciate their taste. Mubiru could be adept at salesmanship. No need to stir up a storm in a tea cup. CMP,” the Katikkiro wrote via his Facebook page.

Shortly after Mubiru’s attempts, the Airline released a statement saying that it does not condone the way Mubiru did his business.

They however said that they are going to start including Nsenene on their menu.

Mubiru also came out to issue a public apology to all those affected.

He added that he was only looking for content for his Tiktok account.
