9 MUK STUDENTS SUSPENDED, 26 WARNED: M7 Family Have Overseen Corruption For 33 Years, They Can’t Condemn It – Besigye, You Can’t Run A Country With Advisers Like Buchaman – Ssewungu

Published

on

Four-time presidential candidate Rtd. Col. Kizza Besigye has blasted President Museveni and his family that they don’t have credibility to condemn corruption because they have been cited in corrupt cases in united court of justice.

Through his twitter account, Besigye stated that, “Brave! I don’t expect Mr. Museveni and his family to still talk about corruption after the conviction (in the open US Federal court of bribery, Mr. Chiping Ho! It’s the corruption they have overseen for 33 plus that denies young people free quality university education like Museveni himself got!”  Besigye said.

The FDC strongman was responding to a statement issued by the First Lady Janet Museveni who is also the Minister of Education. In her statement yesterday, Maama Janet reasoned that the strike by Makerere University students has been powered by corruption tendencies and fueled by some opposition members.

Mrs. Museveni explained that there are opposition characters who are bribing Makerere students to riot over the  15% tuition increment.

She insisted that the tuition increment was agreed upon by both the guild council and the university management. Police publicist Fred Enanga had earlier told journalists that police had discovered a mobile money shop where opposition agents were withdrawing money from to give to students to riot.

Enanga further said that some of the rioters are not students of Makerere but were transported there just to riot. Besigye also branded Enanga a liar, “one must be totally immune to shame to be a spokeperson of Uganda police force or NRM or Museveni junta! Many more people will increasingly get paid to fight for their rights –get ready” Besigye said.

MP SEWUNGU INSISTS M7 CANNOT SOLVE MAKERERE UNREST WITH ADVISERS LIKE BUCHAMAN

Without mincing his words, the Democratic Party chief whip who also doubles as the Kalungu West Member of Parliament Joseph Ssewungu advised president Museveni that if he wants to end the unrest at Makerere, he must stop getting advisers like newly appointed adviser on Ghetto affairs Mark Bukenya alias Buchaman. MP Ssewungu said that Museveni cannot end unrest in Makerere if is still relying people like Kusasira and Buchman. The legislator was giving his opinion to the media on the continued unrest at Makerere at parliament.

Ugandans Who Will Refuse To Sign On ICC Petition To Have M7 Indicted Will Be Committing Treason – Besigye…

Published

on

Four-time presidential aspirant, Col. Kizza Besigye has warned Ugandans who are planning to dodge the signing of the petition entitled: “Uganda people’s petition to International Criminal Court” that they will be committing treason according to Article 3 of the constitution.

According to Besigye, all Ugandans are held responsible to fight for their fundamental rights and other rights granted by the constitution.

“Every person has a responsibility of protecting his or her rights, if you see someone abusing your right then you have to deal with that person in courts of law, since the constitution under Article 3 allows you to fight for your rights, Ugandans who have declined to sign on the petition are committing treason,” Besigye said.

He said this at the people’s government offices along Katonga road in Kampala where he officially lunched the signing of the petition that is aimed at compelling ICC to summon president Museveni.

In a meeting attended by Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, Ken Lukyamuzi, Leader of Opposition Betty Aol Ochan and other the opposition members, Besigye said that the petition is a universal petition that caters for all Ugandans both in Uganda and abroad who have been victims of Museveni’s torture and his poor governance.

“The petition is for all Ugandans, its intended to bring peace to all, we need Museveni out of power with the help of ICC since he cannot handover peacefully,” he insisted.

“Anybody aggrieved with Museveni’s policies of violating our rights like freedom of speech and expression, freedom of assembly and right to life should provide evidence and join in the signing of petition,” he said.

He further urged all police persons and military to abandon violating commands that are given to them by their Commander in Chief.

“The police should work for Ugandans, they should abandon the violating commands that are given to them by Museveni because everyone is accountable for the crimes they commit, no one will ask for who ordered you. Look at Kayihura now, he is suffering alone though he was working on Museveni’s orders,” Besigye added.

He revealed that the petition will be wired online for all Ugandans both in Uganda and abroad to sign.

“Our petition is going to be wired online and links are going to be circulated for those outside Uganda,” he said. He further urged NRM members who have known the weaknesses of President Museveni to join the petition for a better tomorrow.

“Members from the NRM party who understand the weaknesses of their president should join us because this is about Museveni not NRM. Members of other opposition parties and movements like Hon: Kyagulanyi, Gen. Mugisha Muntu, Nobert Mao and other leaders, join us and we defend our country from dictators,” Besigye rallied.

According to Besigye, the process of signing the will take long period of time since they plan to spread it country wide.

CELEBRITY GOSSIP

Sipapa, Full Figure Are Using M7’s Money To Kill Us: Music Promotors Bajjo, Abitex Cry Out ….

Published

Abitex and Bajjo addressing journalists

Events promoters Andrew Mukasa alias Bajjo events and Abbey Musinguzi alias Abitex have pinned socialite Charles Olim alias Sipapa and Jennifer Nakaguubi alias Full Figure of using the millions of money given to them by president Yoweri Museveni to kill them.

Bajjo told journalist in Kampala that on Wednesday evening, he survived being killed by armed hooligans holding machetes at Makindye, a Kampala suburb.

“I have audio recordings of that fool Sipapa and Full Figure strategizing on how to finish our lives. I heard Full figure tipping Sipapa to tell his gangs to locate us and kill us using stones,” Bajjo said.

He revealed that when he received an audio from a friend, they decided to run away from Baba TV where they had been hosted for a talk show. He said that when they reached Makindye, a group of people attacked them with machetes and stoned his car. Abitex said that he received credible information from state house that both Sipapa and Full Figure told Museveni that they know Abitex and Bajjo and that they will help him silence them at all cost.

Abitex warned that the act of giving people free money will increase criminality in the country because people will start thinking that they don’t have to work but can always be given free money. Both promotors filed their complaints at Katwe police station. Full figure was not reached for comment since she was not picking our calls.

PROMOTORS LIKELY TO LOSS BILLIONS

Earlier, lawyer Erias Lukwago, who was  representing the two promoters pleaded with High Court judge Lydia Mugambe Ssali to save his clients from losing billions of money and jobs in the coming 2019 festival season. Lukwago submitted that the directive issued by the Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola stopping his clients from organizing musical concerts will deny them employment since their source of income are the music shows.

Lukwago told court that his clients lost over Shs200m when Ochola stopped their concerts at Busabala, Gulu Lira and other places yet they had already paid all the necessary requirements including security.

The presiding judge Ssali asked both applicants why they didn’t proceed with organizing concerts of other musicians because it seems the IGP only stopped them from organizing Bobi Wine’s concerts.

Lukwago with people power lawyer Shamim Malende tried to plead to Ssali to accommodate their matter before the Christmas festival because it’s the period when his clients work more.

This was after judge Ssali had told them that she was assigned to go to high court criminal division to handle very serious criminal cases.

However, after Lukwago’s plea, Justice Ssali changed her mind and asked Lukwago to take their file back to the registrar so that it can be allocated to another judge which Lukwago refused. Mugambe further advised the applicants to stop exaggerating their case. The judge ordered both parties to submit written submissions instead of oral as Lukwago was proposing. The matter was adjourned to 13 December.

Lawyer Mabirizi Asks East African Court To Halt 2021 Election Preparations Until Their Ruling Of The Age Limit Appeal

Published

Mabirizi presenting his case before the East African court of justice in Arusha Tanzania

Controversial city lawyer Male Mabirizi Kiwanuka has asked the East African court of justice in Arusha Tanzania to issue a court order stopping Uganda’s Electoral Commission from conducting the 2021 general elections.

Mabirizi submitted to the five justices of this court led by Lady Justice Monica Mugenyi (Principal Judge), Justice Dr. Faustin Ntezilyayo (Deputy Principal Judge), Justice Audace Ngiye, Justice Dr. Charles O. Nyawello and Justice Charles Nyachae that his case is very serious because it raises questions relating to the governance of Uganda’s parliament, executive and judiciary.

“I will suffer irreparable damages if the application is not granted since Article 3(4) of Uganda’s constitution empowers me to defend the constitution from illegal amendments,” Mabirizi submitted. He told court that after resolving the grievances in his case, the electoral commission can conveniently resume its processes. 

In his defense, the solicitor general Francis Atoke put up a spirited fight and asked court not to allow Mabirizi’s application because it can cause instability in the country and erode constitutionalism.

Atoke argued that halting the 2021 elections will be so dangerous that he doesn’t want to be in Uganda to see what will happen if elections are suspended.

“My Lords, since the applicant pleaded for damages and interests, in my view, court should instead award him damages at the end instead of stopping the elections,” Atoke submitted. In his rejoinder, Mabirizi stated that halting the election process of 2021 cannot cause instability in Uganda as the solicitor general claimed but it will instead instill constitutionalism in the country. He insisted that there is no amount of damages that can adequately compensate the collapse of the rule of law, good governance and disrespect of human rights.

Mabirizi told court that during the passing of the controversial age limit bill in parliament in 2017, Members of Parliament were seriously beaten and their backs broken, and even if they are awarded with damages, their backs can never be healed.  The judges promised to give their ruling on notice. 

However, court declined to strike off the Attorney general’s defense as Mabirizi had applied claiming that his defense was filed out of 45 days’ time as prescribed by the rules of the East African courts of justices. 

William Byaruhanga told court that it was not their intention to file their defense out of time as Mabirizi claimed but the delay was caused by one of their staff who negligently without knowing that the matter was of public importance failed to do her job.

Court also refused the Attorney General’s affidavit sworn by senior state attorney George Kalemera who wanted court to strike out Mabirizi’s case claiming that he exhibited vexatious and frivolous behaviors in the conduct of his petition during the constitutional court hearing and at the supreme court.

Kalemera told court that Mabirizi abused and disrespected justices of both the constitution court and supreme court. In response, the justices agreed with Mabirizi that the AG’s affidavit was scandalous and irrelevant to the court.

The government team led by the Attorney General William Byaruhanga (L), his deputy
Mwesigwa Rukutana (C) and the solicitor General Francis Atoke (R)

Mabirizi ran to the East African court after losing in the constitutional court and supreme court of Uganda which decided that article 102(b) was properly amended and the lifting of the age limit was done legally. The government’s 15 team of legal brains was led by Attorney General William Byaruhanga, his deputy Mwesigwa Rukutana, solicitor General Francis Atoke, Director Civil Litigation Christine Kaahwa, Director commissioner  civil litigation Martin Mwambustya and others against Mabirizi and his assistant.
