Kabushenga made the comments in a video that has since gone viral where he says that he used to be highly respected but that those were simpler times.

“I used to be a big man, big boy, big size. Today, zero!” Kabushenga said.

He adds, “So, I go somewhere to see a big man like Mukisa. I must also first stop at the reception..There’s one famous question that people used to ask when coming to see me, now, I am the one asking it; Is the big man there?

“Then the girl tells you, ‘umm let me find out’. Then she first goes on the phone. So you wait, you stand there. Then she rings and then they tell her he’s in.”

“Then she says, he’s there but I think he is in a meeting..I tell him you’re who? And then I say, tell him I am Kabushenga. She’s asks, Kabushenga of where? I reply, a ‘street vendor” Kabushenga says.

Kabushenga waxes philosophical about how one should not go around throwing their weight, adding that one must be polite to people saying that as life goes on, you realize that not everybody knows you.

“Even those who do, don’t care. And if you want to get along you say, ‘I’m sorry but tell him if he’s busy, I can come back. So, you sit at the reception quietly.” he said.

In another clip, Kabushenga is seen saying that something needs to be done about the high commodity prices because "we are broke, we cant afford life."

Kabushenga has been slammed by social media users with many exhibiting disbelief at his claims, adding that he is dog-whistling for a large position from government. They have accused him of keeping a blind eye to the suffering masses when he was in 'things' only to start crying after now.
