    Kulthum Nabunya and her new husband to be Akram Gumiziriza

    The Late Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata Batte’s widow Dr. Hajjati Kulthum Nabunya Muzaata is set to legalize her new relationship with the love of her life, Akram Gumiziriza.

    Hajjati Kulthum and Akram became household names in January 2022, when they both revealed that they were head over heels for each other, and now next on agenda is making their marriage official in a mega introduction followed by the wedding.

    Speaking to theGrapevine, Hajjati Kulthum confirmed that she is set to introduce her husband to be in a mega ‘Kwanjula’ ceremony that will take place on November 25, 2022, followed by a wedding on December 18, 2022.

    “Yes, it’s true that the marriage ceremonies are happening, Kwanjula is on 25th November this year then the wedding is on 18th December 2022, and only invited guests with invitation cards will attend both ceremonies,” Hajjati Kulthum told theGrapevine.

    Asked where the ceremonies will take place, Hajjat Kulthum told theGrapevine that she will share the details in August or September when the dates for the functions are closer.

    She further noted that marriage and her religion are very important to her that’s why Akram made a visit (Kukyala) to her ancestral home.

    “I always tell women to ask men for an official marriage before even staying together,” she noted.

    Despite the heavy criticism that came along when they made their relationship public, Hajjat Kulthum boldly assured haters and social media in-laws that her relationship with Akram is a perfect match that was made in heaven.

    Hajjati Kulthum has one child with her late Husband Muzaata who died on December 4th, 2020 at International Hospital Kampala (IHK) where he had been admitted for several weeks.

    At the time of his death, Sheikh Muzaata was a Muslim leader heading Imams in Uganda. He was also the head of Dawa in Uganda, an Arabic teacher, marriage teacher, and counsellor.

    According to Hajjat Kulthum, Akram is an engineer by profession and has a technical training institute called Interlink Technical, PTY.

    Asked why she chose him among the many applications that she had on her waiting list, she intimated to us that she followed the Quran guidelines listed under Chapter 4 where Allah tells Muslim women to get married for 4 reasons which Akram had all the boxes ticked.

    She noted that among the qualities she looked for included, ‘’A God-fearing person (he is a Muslim), one with a good family background. All his brothers and sisters are highly educated doing good business. And some are high-profile Judges.

    “He is economically stable and he is someone who is pleasant. Akram has all those qualities, so having passed the Islamic criteria I had to accept his proposal for marriage.”

    Some of the senior actors in ebonies

    Ebonies actors and actresses have cried out for help claiming that they are sleeping hungry and being chased out of houses for failing to pay rent.

    One actor who preferred to remain anonymous revealed to theGrapevine that the Ebonies management has spent close to three months without paying some of them.

    “We are tired of sleeping hungry, they are chasing us from houses of Shs.30,000 because we don’t have money to pay yet we keep working and entertaining people,” he said.

    She further revealed that on complaining to their boss, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Ebonies, told them to be patient with him because, at the moment, the company doesn’t have money.

    “He called us to a meeting where he started telling us how the company doesn’t have money. He told us to give him time to borrow money to pay us.”

    When theGrapevine reached out to Mr. Sam Bagenda alias Dr. Bbosa, one of the senior members of Ebonies who has spent many years in the acting industry, he refuted the allegations noting that it is not true that actors and actresses are not paid.

    “I already put out my statement on those issues a longtime and like I said, it is false,” he said.

    Bbosa added that their business is moving on so well that people are even enjoying the different plays at National Theatre.

    “People are just trying to get likes and subscriptions so they create information from nowhere but you should know when you are excelling in a certain field, you always have the negative energy trying to pull you down,” he divulged.

    Bbosa furthermore told this website that if one is not strong enough, only that can disorganise the whole progress.

    He then insisted that their business is moving on well and no one is complaining.

    PICTURES:  Pastor Bujjingo Fills Up Kololo Grounds During Independence Night Prayers; Pr. Kayiwa Asks His Brother Kato Lubwama To Get Saved…

    Published

    on

    Thousands of believers flocked Kololo Independence grounds to Pray, Praise and worship the Almighty God.

    This was during the Independence Night prayers organised by House of Prayer Ministries International pastor, Aloysious Bujjingo.

    Believers from different parts of the country and abroad withstood the rain to worship and pray from Friday 6:00am to Saturday 6:00am.

    Independence night prayers are organized every year every year towards independence.

    Pr. Bujjingo revealed that just like Uganda was able to get independence in 1962 from the British, he decided to organise these prayers to pray for believers so that they are liberated from whatever is distressing their lives.

    The theme for this year’s prayers was ‘Pursue, Overtake and Recover All’, from 1 Samuel 30:8 where King David inquired from God concerning launching an attack on Israel’s enemy, the Amalekites, “Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And He answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

    Pr. Bujjingo told believers that through constant prayer, trust and faith in the Almighty God, He will give them victory in anything that they need and pray for including fighting their enemies both seen and unseen just like He did for David.

    He further told believers to always depend and rely fully on God for a good life here on earth and also for the inheritance of eternal life.

    Believers were seen in deep prayer with some rolling on the floor as they were delivered from demons.

    During prayers, Pr. Bujjingo invited his spiritual father, Pr. Simeon Kayiwa, the Vice Chancellor for Kayiwa University who appreciated him so much for saving his brother former Member of Parliament, Kato Lubwama.

    Through a song, Pr. Simeon noted that Lubwama loves Pr. Bujjingo so much that he (Lubwama) tried to understand how to pray.

    “I know most of you people were not aware that Kato Lubwama is my biological brother and that we share the same mother,” he said.

    He added, “I know he is not saved but I believe one day he will because he loves you (Bujjingo) so much. Thank you for loving him too.”

    Bujjingo prayed through the rain which started at 2:00pm and stopped at 5;00pm leaving many socked in water but that did not stop them from worshiping and praying to God.

    During the night prayers at 11:00pm, Bujjingo introduced his wife, Suzan Makula and the couple excited believers when they danced the “kinyarwanda dance”.

    Over 2000 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ.

    Where Is My Brother And Cousin Who You Picked From Our Home In A Drone? Former NBS Journalist Tasks UPDF…

    Published

    Jornalist Bahati Remmy and UPDF spokesperson Brig. Felix Kulayigye (R)

    Former NBS journalist, Remmy Bahati has questioned government over the unlawful arrest and detention of her relatives.

    Bahati alleges that her family fell victim to the drone abductions yesterday.

    She revealed that armed plain clothed men driving a drone with no plates stormed her 76-year-old father’s house in Fort Portal City under the guise of searching for ‘guns’.

    “They didn’t find any (guns) and abducted my brother, cousin and his friend who was visiting. Their whereabouts are unknown. Help me find them,” she added.

    The US-based journalist has since pleaded with the defence Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye to investigate the matter and help her find her family members.

    “My dad has been going from one police station to the other looking for them but no luck. I demand to know the whereabouts of my brother, cousin and friend identified as Abala.”

    In response to her cry, Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye revealed that last evening, the flying squad arrested a one Allan who has been masquerading as a soldier.

    “Police flying Squad assisted by other security agencies carried out an operation to apprehend criminals who have been masquerading in military attires, conning people in & around Fort Portal City. On a tip off, one Kanyesige Allan, main suspect, was netted in Semuliki Lodge and Bar with a lady accomplice, Peace Sudai.”

    “On brief interrogation, he led the security team to the home of Katungi Kelvin, claiming to be his place of aboard. Katungi Kelvin was also on the wanted list as an associate. He too was apprehended. Two other associates Mugisa lsaaya and Asa ba Abdulatif were also arrested. They are all detained at CPS Fort Portal.” UPDF spokesperson said in a statement.

    However, Bahati told the UPDF Spokesperson that none of the people mentioned is a relative to her.

    “None of the pictures of the suspects shared by UPDF is related to me. UPDF don’t play games with me. I need to know where my brother is. Period! The unlawful detentions, torture and abductions must stop.”

    “Where is my brother Mr. Katungi Kelvin, My cousin Mugume Latif and their friend Identified as Abala who you picked up from home in a drone?” she asked.

    UPDF responded to her that, “I did not say they are your relatives, we have shown you those that we arrested from Fort Portal. That’s all.”

    This comes after a number of alleged abductions of different opposition supporters in the infamous drones.

    National Unity Platform (NUP) president, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine recently demanded the release of these victims dead or alive.

    He noted, “The Drones Are Back.” These past three weeks, 15 of our people have been abducted by state operatives. Most are still missing. Others were brought to court days or weeks later, limping as a result of grave torture.”
