Abtex And Bajjo Are Conmen, They Want Bobi Wine To Fall Into M7’s Trap – Tamale Mirundi: Some People Have Been Paid To Be Stupid – Abtex Fires Back

L-R: Events organisers Abtex and Bajjo with Mirundi

President Museveni’s former Press Secretary Joseph Tamale Mirundi has warned Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine to be careful while dealing with people like events organisers Abtex and Bajjo claiming they are conmen.

While speaking to Sanyuka TV’s Uncut, Mirundi cautioned Bobi Wine to be careful because the two events managers especially Abtex will fail him. He added that the two are claiming that they are putting up Bobi concerts yet in actual sense they are trying to lure him into a trap by getting money from Museveni.

In his words, Tamale Mirundi said, “the one who stopped Bobi Wine from singing is the one who will allow him sing again so, now they have not allowed him to sing. Secondly, Bobi said he wants to be president, he is not a candidate now. The law allows a candidate to stage rallies but that will be in 2021 when the year is ending, they will give them three months. He is not a presidential candidate now. He is the Kyadondo east Member of Parliament meaning he is not allowed to stage rallies,” the presidential adviser on Media warned.

He continued, “thirdly, the government said Bobi Wine turns his concerts into political rallies, this man who puts on a hat (Abtex) has over failed Bobi Wine, I wish some people attack him because they are playing Bobi. If those men just come up and say that they are going to share the money they get from Museveni with Bobi wine, he will have fallen because he will have deceived his fans, people will think he is a thief.”

ABTEX FIRES BACK

When the Grapevine contacted Abtex, he told us that people like Mirundi have been paid by the state to be stupid.

“People saying such things have been paid to be stupid. Right now, Bobi Wine has put a lot of pressure on Museveni, He never expected a young man like Bobi to put him under a lot of pressure, he was used to the Maos and Besigyes. I cannot at the moment present myself as the person trying to fight Bobi Wine. When Bobi entered politics, he wanted to leave stage performances, I personally convinced him to keep performing on stage. Tony Sempijja, who is an NRM mole took some events organisers to President Museveni who gave them over 1.8 billion, now, me and Bajjo never went there. I personally fought enemy forces to make sure that Bobi performs at the Kabaka’s enkuuka fete. How can a man who did all that fight his own creation. Right now, they have hired bloggers and people like Mirundi to spoil our names. We were arrested and caged with Bobi Wine because we were fighting hard to make sure that his Busabala concert stands, how them can one say that we want his downfall?

We don’t want any compensation from president Museveni, we just want him to allow Bobi to sing and hold his concerts,” Abtex said.

He added that they have hired the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago to handle their court case in which they have taken government to court for stopping Bobi’s shows.

MOWZEY RADIO TRIAL: I Saw Radio Pour Booze On The Bar Owner, He Ordered His Bouncer To Throw Him Out – Four Witnesses Testify As Fallen Musician’s Trial Begins…

Published

on

Mr. David Ebanget (37), a Music Producer and resident of Kulambiro has told the High Court that sat in Entebbe today that while at De Bar hangout, Godfrey Wamala alias Troy, the man accused of killing musician Mozey Radio,  grabbed the deceased from a one Pamela Musimire, threw him down and took off.

Mr. Ebangat who says he had known Mozey Radio for 10 years told presiding Judge Jane Francis Abodo that on the fateful date, “Radio poured booze on some people before a one Ms. Pamela Musimire and another person only identified as Mr Ategeka intervened and took him out of the bar.”

Troy in court today

He added that when Radio was taken out of the bar, Wamala grabbed him, pushed him down and took off into hiding in Kyengera- Wakiso District, until 4th/February/ 2018 when he handed himself into police hands upon hearing that Radio was dead.

The second witness was Musimire Pamela (37), a resident of Abaita Ababiri told High court that on 22/January/2019, the deceased (Mowzey Radio) called her and directed her to find him  at Debar. On reaching there, she found Troy, the bar owner, a one Hassan  Muwonge and other people she could not identify.

“Mowzey asked the bar owner to buy for him booze, but the bar owner told him that he had no money. He however ordered the waitress to bring a bottle of whisky, on bringing it, Mowzey didn’t drink it but instead poured it in glasses of other people, and poured the remaining booze on the owner of bar which angered him,” Pamela testified in court.

Pamela told Justice Abodo that the owner of the bar then asked her to take Mowzey out which she did, and it’s at that moment that Troy followed them and pulled Mowzey from Pamela and pushed him down and he took off.

The third witness was Mowzey’s mother Ms. Jane Kasubo who implored court to exercise justice in this case. The fourth witness was a friend to the late Musician, Mr. Hassan Muwonge 28, a resident of Entebbe Church road.

Washington testifying before court today

Mr. Muwonge told court that on that fateful day, Mowzey came with Producer Washington to De bar, Muwonge said that he saw Mowzey pouring booze on the bar owner which angered him. The bar owner told Pamela to take Mowzey out, while Hassan took the bar owner to the washrooms.

However, Hassan said that he didn’t see who beat up his friend.

However, when Troy’s Lawyer Mr. Leonard Kasibante cross-examined the witnesses, he tasked them to explain to court how they got to know Troy;  Washington told court that he knew Troy through Pamela, while Pamela testified that she had seen Troy at Debar although she didn’t know him until she was called to record a  statement at police.

The fourth witness Hassan Muwonge said he is the one who introduced Troy to Pamela while at Debar, a hangout in Entebbe.

Today, State Attorney Ms. Joan Keko and Mr. Joseph Kyomuhendo finished leading the four witness. Further Hearing of this case was adjourned to tomorrow 6th/September/2019

Mozey Radio met his death on 1st/February/2018 following a brawl at Debar, a popular hangout in Entebbe on 22 January.

How Greedy Men Are Failing Kabaka Radio And TV: We Are Paid Peanuts And It Comes Late, The Bosses Are Running Away With Sacks – Zambali Departure From BBS TV To Nbs Exposes Rot At Bulange

Published

on

L-R: Joe Kigozi, Joyce Bagala, Kin Kariisa, Zambali and Ismail Sembatya

Buganda Kingdom owned television BBS TV board of Directors are receiving frequent and constant phone calls from Buganda chiefs asking them why their favorite news anchor Zambali Bulasio Mukasa left. 

Sources at the Masengere house-based BBS TV have told The Grapevine that clan heads in Buganda, county chiefs and Buganda kingdom ministers were not happy with Zambali’s departure from the kingdom’s TV to Kin Kariisa’s NBS TV because he was a very big brand who inspired young Baganda to work for their king.

“I was surprised to see the way people were concerned over Zambali’s departure, even the kingdom ministers wanted an explanation from the board,” our credible source revealed.

When asked why the so called Zambali supporters don’t put to task the Chief Executive officer of the television to explain, because he is responsible for the day to day running of the television instead of running to the board, the source said that most of the top Buganda ministers feel the CEO has no powers, and the board members are the real people running the show.

 A senior reporter at BBS TV revealed to this website that when NBS TV approached Zambali, he first talked to his senior friends at CBS radio and BBS for advice.

“I advised my man to go and look for greener pastures, you know here we enjoy prestige that we are working for the king and always see him whenever he comes to office but we are poorly paid. People out there think that we are highly paid which is wrong, we sometimes even spend three months without pay even though they pay after some time,” a very senior journalist at BBS TV told the Grapevine.

He further told us that many workers at BBS TV are frustrated because while they are receiving peanuts, which come late sometimes, their bosses are walking away with bags of money.

The senior journalist gave Zambali as an example saying CBS radio is dying from the inside because of mismanagement from some top bosses.

“All Zambali’s friends told him that if he refuses the NBS offer, he will die poor and miserable like sports presenter and musician Mark Augustine Makumbi and Mukiibi  Serunjogi died, or suffer humiliation like CBS sports commentator Yusuf Baliruno. Baliruno recently suffered humiliation during his illness at Kiruddu hospital when his employers first failed to offer him any medical assistance until his matter became the talk of town,” the source added.

Zambali after being unveiled at NBS TV

When Ono Bwino newspaper, a Luganda weekly paper ran Baliruno’s story and confession showing how CBS and Mengo establishment neglected him at the time when he needed them most, he was bitterly blasted by his bosses asking him why he ran to the media that he was not helped.

Sources told the Grapevine that it’s against such background and advice from friends that Zambali decided to tender in his resignation letter to his bosses at Masengere.

Our sources further told us that the BBS management tried to convince Zambali in vain. “It was a very hard time for Zambali because he was promised a salary increment, they even promised to pay him on time and a promotion but the man had already made up his mind after meeting with Joel Kigonzi, NBS TV’s chief strategist,” the source added.

At NBS TV, Zambali faces an uphill task of out competing NTV’s new recruit Sandra Nakiwala (from UBC TV).  According to viewership data from Ipsos and other sources, NTV’s Akawungezi news bulletin at 7:00pm beats NBS’s Amasengejje (also at the same time) and Kaliisa has been scratching his head for someone who can favorably compete with NTV’s winning team of Faridah Nakazibwe, Solomon Kaweesa and Walusimbi Frank.

We now wait to see if NTV team that has been boosted with the addition of Sandra Nakiwala will beat NBS TV’s Zambali, Joyce Bagala and Ismail Sembatya.
