This act caused him to make quite a bit of noise claiming
unfair play. Larry in his post attacks this behavior by the politician
saying, " The airport scene is exactly what you would expect from an individual
so accustomed to privilege that they have come to expect it – entitlement. A
man who represents one of the poorest counties — in fact, poorer than the
national average — reminding us all how wealthy and powerful he is.”
He went on
to add, "They lord it over you on the roads, with their sirens and road-clearing
goons, while you cower subserviently in endless traffic jams. They take over
your weddings and funerals, shouting themselves hoarse about worthless political
ideologies, while your ceremonies remain suspended".
Though many good points were raised in the article, one of
his followers struck out at the writer saying “ If Larry Madowo meets
Wetangula today, he won’t discuss the same issues he did in this article; he
will take a selfie and post here.” This drama seems to be building momentum on
his facebook page as the day goes on. Check out more on the matter here: https://www.facebook.com/LarryMadowoFor the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
