BATTLE OF GENERALS: Stop Attacking My Court: Military Court Martial Boss Gutti In Bitter Exchange With CDF Muhoozi

Published

on

There is a silent cold war between Makindye based court martial chairperson Lt. General Andrew Gutti and the Chief of Defense Force boss General David Muhoozi. Sources in the corridors of court martial revealed to the Grapevine that there was a bitter exchange between the two Generals over incarcerated former Bubulo Member of parliament Tonny Nsubuga Kipoi.

Multiple sources revealed that after Kipoi had accepted the treason charges of trying to overthrow the legitimate National Resistance Movement (NRM) government and applied for amnesty, the court martial allowed Kipoi’s application for amnesty and he was supposed to appear before the court martial to receive his amnesty papers but he didn’t appear.

“On Monday (yesterday), Major Raphael Mugisha was summoned at CMI headquarters where he spent the entire day and he was not allowed to communicate to anybody. When he came back in the evening, he briefed   his superiors what transpired at CMI headquarters. It was a heated meeting and the chairperson was heard raising his voice,” a credible source revealed. He further narrated to us that Mugisha briefed court martial officers that he was told at the CMI headquarters that the military was very ready to re-arrest Kipoi because the government and military were not convinced with court martial decision to allow Kipoi to be granted amnesty.

“I am telling you I saw something I have never seen in my life for the seven years I’ve worked with General Gutti. He stormed out of his office while raising his voice that he was tired of being undermined. He even angrily opened his car door for himself and ordered his driver to quickly drive off. While in the car, he was furiously talking to someone on phone. We passed via Jinja road and along the way, we met the CDF’s convoy.

General Gutti moved out of his car and met the CDF who also moved out of his car, they talked for about 30 minutes,” our source, who is always very close to the court martial boss revealed. He said that during the discussion, the two Generals talked about Kipoi’s matter and Gutti made reference to High command meetings. Gutti wondered why CMI is always undermining the court martial. The court martial boss reminded Muhoozi how former flying squad commander Hebert Muhangi was re-arrested inside court martial premises after he was granted bail.

“General, you people you must understand that the court martial has the same status as the high court, stop humiliating us,” General Gutti was quoted telling Muhoozi.

He explained to his commander General Muhoozi that court martial nowadays is receiving a lot of criticism from the public. The calm Muhoozi apologised to the already charged General Gutti and promise to do more consultation. On Tuesday, Kipoi was expected to appear before court martial but Gutti stopped Luzira prison services from bringing him to the Makindye based court until further notice. Kipoi was extradited from Swaziland where he was in exile after running out of the country. It is alleged that Kipoi tried to establish a rebel movement to overthrow the NRM government.

COURT MATIAL TENURE EXPIRE THIS WEEK

The tenure of the current court martial chair and his members is going to expire this week. A source revealed to the Grapevine that Lt. General Gutti is no longer handling any case until the decision of the commander in chief. Lt General replaced the late General Levi Karuhanga.

Ugandans Should Start Telling More Lies: Nambooze Attacks Museveni For Calling Buganda Katikkiro Mayiga A Liar

Published

on

Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze has rallied Ugandans to start telling more lies because the word has changed meaning and government officials are calling the truth lies and lies truth.

During his address to the nation yesterday evening at State House Nakasero, a furious Museveni warned Buganda Kingdom Prime Minister (Katikkiro) Charles Peter Mayiga to stop uttering nonsense concerning the registration of coffee growers.

“About the licensing of coffee, there is no license, this Katikkiro was telling lies. I sent a message to someone that this Katikkiro should stop this nonsense. He was lying, and he should stop. There is no licensing, what is happening is registering and the reason for registering is exporting,” Museveni said.

The president said that he was the one who ordered his cabinet minister of agriculture Vincent Sempijja to go and explain the Katikkiro what the government wants to achieve by registering Coffee farmers.

The president said as a cattle keeper from Ankole, he has been registered and they have their chairman.

It should be remembered that the Katikkiro, during the Buganda budget reading on Monday cautioned government the new laws which the government plans to slap on coffee growers in the country are in bad faith. It should be noted that coffee is one of the popular cash crops grown in Buganda region.  

In the same address, the president told security organs to stop arresting people for annoying him.

“I don’t mind being annoyed. I have no problem with being annoyed. That was a colonial law that I used to hear about. The bigger issue is telling lies, inciting and sedition. Those are the areas of substance that police should concentrate on,” Museveni said.

WHY ARE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS CALLING TRUTH LIES?

Mukono municipality legislator betty Nambooze Bakireke has attacked the president for calling Buganda Premier Chales Peter Mayiga a liar.

Through his Facebok page, Nambooze said, “At State House last evening Mr.Museveni called the Buganda Katikiro a lier and a perdon who speaks rubbish…. His I mention was to belittle the Katikiro for he Insisted that his interpreter Rose Namayanja gives his word their true meaning in Luganda. Mr.Museveni said that farmers are to be registered because foreign buyers if coffee want to trace the coffee bean right from the farmer…so because of this what the Katikiro is saying are lies and Nonsense!”

She adds, “In Parliament, State Minister Mutuuzo on the floor of Parliament said the same things about me… she said that I am a liar when I say that Ugandan girls in the Middle East are being enslaved. She justified her submission with telling Parliament that these girls bring in 600 million dollars in the economy annually…so because of this, I who was talking about their plight was a liar and speaking Nonsense.

I therefore wish to inform Ugandans who care for our country to start telling the lies and nonsense like the Katikiro….. The two words changed meaning, they mean to oppose policies, actions and laws that disfavor Ugandans by exchanging their rights with foreign interests.”

Don’t Be Stupid, You Are Fools To Think That Bujjingo’s Followers Will Run To Your Churches – Mirundi Blasts Pastors Kiganda And Bugembe, Reveals Shocking Information About Teddy

Published

on

Self-claimed media consultant Joseph Tamale Mirundi has blasted and warned pastors under the National Fellowship of Born-Again Pentecostal churches to stop celebrating house of prayers ministry international senior pastor Aloysius Bujjingo’s woes.

Mirundi said that born again pastors must learn that the reason why people are still at Bujjingo’s church is because of the miracles Bujjingo performs and his preaching and the day they discover that he no longer performs to their expectations, they will leave on their own.

“I was suprised to see the likes of pastor Bugembe, David Kiganda cerebrating the troubles of their fellow pastor Bujjingo stupidly, thinking that they will get his followers.  They don’t know the reasons behind Bujjingo’s problems, it’s a big scheme that can only be understood by us who eat enough food,” the celebrated political analysts stated. 

He wondered why Bishop David Kiganda sided with the mafias who want to put Bujjingo down yet he also once tested the bitterness of these mafias when he was embarrassed in public that his wife was snatched by a chapatti maker which was not true.

He insisted that the scheme to put Bugingo down was planned by mafias because of his steady progress spiritually and economically which made him a political threat to those who are fighting to succeed President Museveni.  A bitter Mirundi blasted the women who participated in the demonstration against Bujjingo saying that they were just hired as machineries to humiliate the man of God. 

He boasted that through his Mirundi Internal Security Organization (MISO), he has collected enough evidence pinning Naluswa that she was cursed by her father after conspiring with her mother to harass the old professor until he died.

The former press secretary to the president further blasted journalists who were beaten at Salt Media based home at Lugujja in Lubaga division, he branded them as machineries hired to tarnish Bujjingo’s name like they did to him during his tenure as the President’s press Secretary.

“I was accused and called all sorts of names, that man Kulubya of Bukedde even called me a mad,” a bitter Mirundi said.  The cerebrated journalist warned that if journalists don’t stop being used, the public will continue beating them up.  However, Mirundi blamed Bujjingo for miscalculating and always responding to his enemies.  He predicted that Bujjingo will not lose the battle though he must be prepared for the war if he is to decisively defeat his enemies.
