Kuteesa is an MP and Foreign Minister. He and Museveni were DP youth wingers and were in FRONASA in the seventies, and Kuteesa retreated to DP and Museveni proceeded to UPM and found themselves in NRM.
However some people dispute about Hon. Kuteesa being a FRONASA. They say that he was connected to the Amin Regime in the 1971-73 period and that he played a leading role in supporting the Amin regime to consolidate the revolution against what he termed as the remnants of UPC tyranny. Some of the statements of Sam Kuteesa as the Chairman of Mitchel Hall are in the Newspapers of the 1971-72 period and thus his true position at the time can be verified. There is a lot of un-verified but very credible information of State contacts between the Makerere students who supported Elly Karuhanga against Tumusiime Mutebile and the students who supported Amin against the 1972 guerillas from Tanzania. Hon. Sam Kuteesa falls in this category.
Meanwhile, Paulo Muwanga, Lutakome Kayiira, Evaristo Nyanzi, Anthony Wagaba Sekweyama, Maj. Fred Mpiso, are among the first people charged with treason under NRM government. They were however acquitted after a year.Nyanzi was a guest of honour at a DP Mobilisers anniversary at DP headquarters in 1991, he was too personal against Museveni. Nyanzi ended up in a federal rebel group under a then Mengo minister Duncan Kafeero, was charged with treason against, applied for amnesty and was pardoned. He is keeping a low profile, and very elderly.
