Bobi Wine Has No Ideology, Besigye Is Still Oppositions Strongest Candidate Even Though M7 Will Win The 2021 Elections – Minister Betty Kamya…

Published

The Minister for Lands, Housing and Urban Development Betty Olive Kamya has told People Power supporters that Museveni has already won the 2021 elections even before votes are cast.

Kamya contends that opposition cannot win because they are only concentrating in urban areas that have just about 20% of voters. Kamya adds that despite the readiness of Bobi Wine to go against Museveni, she thinks Dr. Kizza Besigye still holds the highest share of opposition votes.

“The people of Uganda are very comfortable and secure with the leadership of the NRM. The level of tolerance of President Museveni has not been seen among other parties or in other countries,” she says.

“People like to support something strong. The die-hard opposition will support Besigye because Bobi Wine has no ideology” she adds.

Kamya claims that President Yoweri Museveni and the NRM party are heads and shoulders above other politicians and political parties respectively.

Kamya also praised the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) under the leadership of President Museveni as the most appropriate political party that every Uganda should join due to its comfortable environment.

Minister Betty Kamya bragged that joining NRM government is like coming back home from a desert place with no water.

“Being in the NRM is like coming back home. The story of the prodigal son happens often and mine is not different. My coming back home is not a surprise,” Kamya says.

Kamya, the former President of Uganda Federal Alliance (UFA), on Tuesday formally joined NRM party. According to her, many opposition members from different political parties yearn to join the ruling government but they are shy because of their actions.

“I formally joined President Museveni yesterday and I promise to work hand in hand with him for the progress of our party. I know many opposition members would like to join NRM but they fear due to their acts,” Kamya adds.

The minister revealed that for the short time she has been engaging with members of the NRM, she feels it is the most comfortable environment.

When asked whether she will contest for Rubaga Division North seat in the 2021 elections, Kamya said that she is still consulting his new boss (Museveni) and if given a way forward, she will contest.

“I still have interest in my Rubaga Division but I have to first consult the president but if given a go ahead, I will contest,” she says.

Rubaga Division north is currently represented by independent Kasibante Moses.

President Museveni’s son Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba who also doubles as his senior adviser on Special Operations has given him advice never to fight with his former bush war colleague, Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

Muhoozi was wishing Rwandan president Paul Kagame and the people of Rwanda a respectful Kwibuka. Kwibuka means ‘to remember’ and describes the annual commemoration of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

This year marks the 26th commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. Kwibuka26 provides an important opportunity to Remember and honour the over one million victims of the genocide, preserve its evidence and educate Rwandans about its history as well as the lessons that Rwanda has learned.

Lt. Col. Nakalema Directs Arrest of Asian Tycoon Abid Alam Over Rape, Torture Allegation In Mubende…

Published

on

The State House Anti- corruption unit boss Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema has directed the Uganda Police Force to summon Indian Investor Abid Alam to Kasanda police station to record a statement on allegations of torture and rape.

According to credible sources at the Anti-corruption unit, Nakalema today morning talked to Maj. General Sabiiti Muzeeyi and asked him to intervene and assist a one Arthur Mugyenyi who accuses Alam’s workers of torturing his family members and raping his wife in presence of their children.

Sources further revealed that Mugyenyi with the help of their area Member of Parliament Simeo Nsubuga petitioned Nakalema’s anti-corruption unit claiming that they were not helped by the area police when Alam’s goons terrorised them. Last week, Nsubuga said that Alam sent 60 workers to Mugyenyi’s home with machetes and threatened to kill Mugyenyi and his family members.

He said Alam’s workers also cut down Mugyenyi’s banana plantation, destroyed his two houses, and took his 200 cows and 500 goats in a bid to evict him from his land.

Efforts to speak to Alam were futile since his known phone numbers were off.

VIDEO: Please Government Get Us Out Of China: We Are Being Tortured, Discriminated And Chased From Houses Already Four Of Our Colleagues Are Dead – Ugandans In China Cry Out….

Published

Ugandans and Africans who have been plying their trade in China have cried to their governments to get them out of China.

According to a video from one of the Ugandans who is locked down in china, that was shared by Kampala Central legislator Mohammad Nsereko, they are being ejected from houses, denied access to health care and ejected from public transport and already 4 of their colleagues have died under unclear circumstances.

“The Chinese are discriminating us, when we enter their busses they all run out of the bus. These people are showing us their true colours, we are asking government to help. The Chinese should allow us to go home instead of forcefully arresting us and testing us,” he said.

He added, “We are being tortured, i call upon government to help us leave this country. Already four of our colleagues are dead. Let them allow us to go home. The landlords are chasing us from their houses and asking for a lot of money in rent yet we are not working. Everywhere we go we are being chased, we are now in hiding.”

Nsereko called upon government to immediately intervene and stop this alleged discrimination and inhuman treatment.

“I have received disturbing reports and videos of Ugandans and Africans in China being treated in a degrading manner. I have been informed that some have been ejected from houses, others denied access to health care and ejected from public transport. This is very unfortunate; we call upon the Ugandan government to intervene immediately in this matter.”
