Besigye Wants To Use Lukwago To Finish Bobi Wine – Rwomushana Narrates Why And How He Was Arrested….



Presidential aspirant Charles Rwomushana has told theGrapevine that he was jailed on charges of violating presidential directives on the fight against COVID19 pandemic.

The former ISO spy revealed that he was arrested immediately after discussing a number of political issues NBS TV, “You know I hammered them that is why Museveni directed my arrest, they don’t want to tell them the truth behind Lukwago’s defection to FDC,” Rwomushana spoke from the cells.

On Tuesday night, police and other security agencies surrounded the Kamwokya based TV station with the aim of arresting top politicians who included; people’s government spokesperson Betty Nambooze, opposition’s Chief Whip and also Kira Municipality legislator Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, People Power’s Fred Nyanzi Sentamu, Kabula county legislator James Kakooza and Charles Rwomushana  over some of their utterances.

Upon getting information that patrols were waiting for them outside, Nambooze, Nyanzi, Semujju and the programme host Zabali Brasio Mukasa took cover inside NBS studios but fearless Rwomushana walked out of the next media building together with Kakooza and drove off in his Mark II car.

Rwomushana said that he was intercepted and taken to Kira police where he spent the night.

Rwomushana said that he was charged with offences of violating presidential COVID19 directives by traveling during curfew hours.

Before his arrest, Rwomushana revealed that four-time presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye has hired Kampala City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago to finish off Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi’s dream of becoming the President.

The nonsense political commentator insisted that Lukwago’s move to officially join Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party is a political calculation made by Besigye to weaken Kyagulanyi.

“Lukwago was hired as a tribal weapon to finish Kyagulanyi because he is threatening his position as opposition leader. Besigye hired Lukwago to silence Kyagulanyi’s supporters since most of them are here in Buganda,” Rwomushana said.

He explained that Besigye has been enjoying a lot of support in Buganda and now that this support has shifted to Kyagulanyi, the only way to bring his supporters back or divide Kyagulanyi’s support was to bring another Muganda who is loyal to him.

He added that Besigye has been using his henchmen to put down his political opponents, he gave an example of Mugisha Muntu.

He disclosed that Besigye personally facilitated Patrick Oboi Amuriat the current president of the FDC to weaken Muntu’s camp which was a threat to his presidential ambitions.

Rwomushana insisted that Besigye’s move worked because Muntu gave up and left FDC and formed his own Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) party.

However, Rwomushana’s submissions were rubbished by Semujju who said that there is a move by non Baganda and NRM government agents to disorganize any Muganda who wishes to stand for President.

The FDC strongman wondered why it’s okay for the likes of Angelin Osege, Elijah Okupa and other top politicians to leave FDC headed by Oboi from Teso region but bad for Lukwago a Muganda to leave Democratic Party which is predominantly supported by Baganda.

Ssemujju warned Rwomushana and others to stop using the excuse of tribalism to frustrate Baganda’s efforts to take over state leadership.

Don’t Be Fooled, Kutesa And M7’s Families Are Positioning Themselves For A Bigger Project – Semujju Nganda, NRM’s Dombo Explains Why They Did Not Use Tibuhaburwa Name On M7 Posters…



L-R: Dombo, President Museveni and Ssemujju

Emmanuel Dombo, The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Director for Information and publicity has disregarded the widely spread perception that his Museveni led party is gradually loosing it’s authoritative ground, having failed to resolve a feud between Museveni’s brother Aine Kaguta alias Sodo and Minister Sam Kutesa’s daughter, Shartsi Musherure.

Sodo and Musherure were nominated as independents to run against each other in the Mawogola North constituency parliamentary race after they failed to agree on who won the party ticket.

Dombo projecting a win for one of the two, said with confidence that whoever will be elected in Sembabule will still be NRM leaning because the opposition could not raise a candidate.

He said, “When you look at the elections that have been conducted so far, the performance of the opposition has been very low. In these areas where we have had our councilors unopposed, who will be their (opposition) polling agents?”

Kira Municipality MP, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, referring to the same incident insinuated that in Sembabule, NRM is projected to win because it is Museveni’s own family matter.

“Kutesa and Museveni’s families don’t need Parliament salary. They are positioning themselves for the future. To them Uganda is their property. The country must begin looking at the transition from Museveni because it is about to happen,” he said.

On why President Museveni’s official campaign portrait was unveiled with his other official name Tibuhaburwa missing, Dombo explained that they started the process at the secretariat minus putting the president’s Tibuhaburwa name.

“It is going to be fixed with time. It is not true that we fix the president’s picture because when he is speaking on TV he is live,” Dombo argued, disregarding MP Ssemujju’s sentiments that President Museveni has to have his face made up to look younger on set. Semujju reiterated that President Museveni is an old man who is literally tired.

Dombo provocatively stated that Semujju like other opposition entities should admit that President Museveni is too hard for them to beat. He added that Semujju’s verbal energy should rather be diverted to the population to decide who’s more powerful.
