Bobi Wine To Visit Sick Grand Mother Who Went Into Coma When Told That He Was Beaten To Near Death

Published

on

Bugiri Municiplaity legislator Hon. Asuman Basalirwa who also doubles as the lawyer for Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has warned police not to criminalise the joy and excitement that Ugandans want to show Kyagulanyi who is returning from the United states tomorrow.

Addressing Journalists this afternoon at chapter 4 offices, Basalirwa said that Bobi Wine left this country peacefully therefore his return should also be peaceful.
“The constitution prohibits any form of discrimination and application of the law. So, we demand that police should not exhibit any double standards,” Basalirwa warned. According to Basalirwa, the Kyadondo East legislator will be received by his lawyers since they are the ones who saw him off. He will proceed to Najjankankumbi to see his grand mother who went into coma when she was told that her grandson (Bobi Wine) was arrested and tortured to near death in Arua. He will then proceed to Kamwokya where he will have lunch with his family members and then proceed to his home in Magere.

While responding to the comments from Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima, Basalirwa cautioned the general public to be careful because any one who will cause havoc during Kyagulanyi’s return will not be part and partial of the People’s Power.
“We have learnt that there is a move by some goons who have been hired to cause havoc tomorrow. Any havoc caused tomorrow will be well coordinated by the security operatives,” Basalirwa stated. He urged the police to mind their business and stick to keeping law and order. Police should be preoccupied with the so many security concerns in this country. Let them leave Bobi wine alone. They should be present when we need them,” he Added.

 Government Can’t Use Bobi’s Medical Records – Basalirwa

In the same learning, Basalirwa laughed at government mouthpiece Ofwono Opondo’s statement that Bobi Wine should submit his medical report to the medical board so that they may compare it with what they got before he left. In an interaction with the Grapevine, Basalirwa disclosed that Bobi Wine was only asked questions by the medical board and not examined so they have nothing to compare.

“Dont tell me of Opondo’s statements, I was there in hospital and Kyagulanyi was just asked questions not examined it was only Hon. Zaake who was examined. Opondo is just a loud speaker,” Basalirwa told this website.

Basalirwa also laughed off Kayima’s statement that Entebbe residents asked police for protection during Bobi Wine’s return. Basalirwa said that maybe those complaining shifted there overnight. “Besigye, Geatanno, Museveni though he is no longer popular and many others were welcomed with pomp, what’s different about Kyagulanyi. The law shouldn’t be applied in discrimination,” he concluded.

UNTOLD STORY: How Chief Justice’s Illness Delayed Age Limit Judgement, Appellant Mabirizi Threatens To Petition International Courts

Published

on

Sources from the corridors of the Kololo based Supreme court have told the Grapevine that chief justice Bart Katureebe’s illness has influenced the delay of delivering the controversial age limit judgement.

The Grapevine has credibly learnt that two weeks back, justice Arach Amoko, Eldard Mwangusya, Opio Aweri, Lilian Tebatemwa, Paul Mugamba, Jotham Tumwesigye and the Chief Justice, who heads the panel completed their judgement draft and decided on the final factors to be considered in their judgement.

Immediately after the meeting at the supreme court, justice Katureebe developed deadly pain in his hips and arm.

The source revealed that Katureebe was surely in pain and he couldn’t move which sent the judiciary in panic. The decision was taken that the head of the judiciary be flown to South Africa for further medical attention. In South Africa, Katureebe had minor surgery and he was told to rest for a week in Zambia where some of his relatives stay.

Solomon Muyita, the senior Communication officer to judiciary confirmed that Katureebe was unwell two weeks back and had a successfully minor operation. Muyita said that the CJ come back into the country and immediately reported to his office.

On Tuesday, there was a crisis meeting chaired by Katureebe at the Supreme Court to strategise on how they can deliver the age limit judgement because they are running out of time.

Katureebe and team were supposed to deliver their judgement in 60 days after the final submissions of both parties. It is now 75 days since Attorney General William Byaruhanga, his deputy Mwesigwa Rukutana, lawyers Erias Lukwago, Male Mabirizi and others submitted their final arguments on the lifting of age limit for presidential aspirants from 75 years, it’s now open.

In the supreme court meeting, Katureebe admitted that his illness is a big factor which led to the delay of the judgement. He asked his learned judges to bear with him and spend some sleepless night to make sure that they write the judgement and finish it in two weeks’ time. From Tuesday, every morning and evening, the seven justices must have a meeting to compare notes.

MABIRIZI THREATENS TO PETITION INTERNATIONAL COURTS

Maverick lawyer Male Mabirizi, one of the appellants in the age limit case has threatened to petition the international courts over the supreme court’s failure to deliver their judgement in the stipulated time. In his letter, Mabirizi wants a satisfactory explanation from the panel why they have failed to deliver the judgement on time.

The lawyer who doesn’t have a practicing license threatened to petition the international courts of justice, the East African Court and African court over the failure by the supreme court of Uganda to deliver the judgement in the stipulated time. It should be remembered that in his final remarks, Katureebe assured Ugandans that they will deliver their judgement in time adding that if they don’t deliver their judgement in time, Mabirizi can drag them to international court.

M7 Finally Calls Bamugemereire On Phone Over Attorney General Rukutana’s Abuses, Orders Her To Recall Him For Questioning, Issues Arrest Warrant To Rukutana’s Henchman

Published

on

Credible Sources in the Commission of Inquiry into land matters have told the Grapevine that the Commission’s chairperson justice Catherine Bamugemereire finally talked to president Yoweri Museveni the appointing Authority.

“She has been talking to the president, no one can interrupt the chair’s attention in the middle of the hearing apart from the president.  From yesterday, the judge has been waiting for the president’s call. She has many matters to report to him,” our source revealed. He said that Molly Kamukama, the Private Secretary to the president reported to the judge that the president received her letter where she asked the president for guidance after clashing with Attorney General Mwesigwa  Rukutana, who was dismissed and discharged from the commission’s record. Kamukama told the judge that the president wanted to talk to her on phone.

On Thursday, when the commission was handling the Kamwonkya land scandal, the judge told the public and the commission’s Assistant lead Counsel Andrew Odit that she was expecting a very important call from a very important person in the country within ten minutes. She told him to keep it in his mind. Within eight minutes after Bamugemereire’s pronouncement, her phone rang. She immediately adjourned the hearing and moved out at a very high speed. After 30 minutes, Odit told the public that the hearing was adjourned to Monday. Our source revealed to us that the judge and the president talked about a mountain of issues including giving her new instructions on the Mutungo land saga. We were told that some of the instruction given to Bamugemereire include summoning Rukutana back to the Commission to testify.

Bamugemereire told the president that Rukutana intentionally disrespected the commission and provoked them to avoid questions fired at him by Ebert Byenkya the Commission’s lead Counsel concerning his legal opinion concerning the payment of shs26bn to city businessman Dr Muhammad Kasasa on Mutungo Land.

Bamugemereire reported to the president that the commission has been investigating the manner in which the government acquired the 640 acres of land on Kyadondo Block 237 plot 56,49 and 27 measuring. Bamugemereire explained to the president that in 2009, government fully paid shs2.4bn to Kasasa but the commission wanted to get his legal opinion on another shs26bn payment to Kasasa.

BAMUGEMEREIRE ISSUES ARRESTING WARRANT AGAINST RUKUTANA’S HENCHMAN 

Earlier, the judge issued an arresting warrant against Sabastian Ruta Ngambwa the alleged henchman to Mwesigwa Rukutana. Odit reported to the judge that Ruta Ngambwa, a director with Prime Real Estate Properties limited has jumped three witness’s summonses where he is supposed to submit to the commission all the documents that lists the names of tenants, he claims to have paid during the evictions in Bukusukuma sub county Nasana municipality. “My lord, this is now the third time Mr. Ruta Ngambwa is refusing to honor the commission’s summons. My lord does hereby issue a warrant of arrest against Mr. Ruta Ngambwa,” Odit prayed. Bamugemereire agreed with Odit and issued the arresting warrant against Ruta Ngambwa. The judge ordered police to arrest Ruta.

“This is a warrant of arrest, under section 9 of the commission of inquiries act, any and every police officer to arrest Ruta who was supposed to provide documents to the commission,” the judge ordered. Ruta Ngambwa is alleged to have been used by Attorney General to grab over 630 acres of land in Buso, Buwaga, Makenke in Nansana municipality, Wakiso district. Ruta is also accused by the family of late Joseph Katerega for grabbing their 235 acres of land in Buwaga.
