Uganda police force top crime detectives under the Directorate of Criminal Investigations has held a very special meeting to strategize on how to handle the frequent kidnap and murder cases which are increasing in the country especially in Kampala and the suburbs. 

Charles Twine, the CID mouthpiece revealed today that in a meeting attended by CID boss Grace Akullo, Commissioner homicide, CID Commander Kampala metropolitan, Regional CID Kampala South among others, they put emphasis on how to handle persistent kidnaps and murders.

“The meeting was called by CID Director to strategise on how to handle this murder wave in the country especially that of the late Maria Nagirinya and his body guard Ronald Kitayimbwa,” Twine revealed.

NAGIRINYA’S HUSBAND GRILLED

Sources at Kibule based CID headquarters revealed that yesterday, police detectives on the instructions of AIGP Grace Akullo summoned Edger Gateni, the husband to the late Nagirinya. He was grilled for more than five hours before the detectives proceeded to his home in Lungujja. Multiple sources told the Grapevine that at Gateni’s home, detectives search the house and there took some items from the house to help with the investigations.

When our source was asked about the items that were taken and how they are connected to the murder of Nagirinya, he refused to reveal more information.

We also established from another source that the detectives searched Gateni’s phone but later returned it to him. Multiple sources told this website that detectives are investigating the strange behavior of Nagirinya’s husband before and after the murder. 

When asked to confirm on the matter, Twine said, “I am not in position to comment on that matter but let me talk to Afande Akullo, I will return to you, though I don’t think that she will pick my call since she is still in a special meeting.”

On Monday, seasoned private investigator David Fredrick Egesa told Ono Bwino, a local Luganda newspaper that the detectives who are investigating the murder of Nagirinya must put a lot of emphasis on the three clues. These are her past and recent relationship, her workmates and her family members.

28-year-old Ms. Nagirinya Mariam, a project manager at Community Integrated Development Initiative (CIDI) and her driver Mr. Kitayimbwa were kidnapped by unknown gunmen at the gate of Nagirinya’s rented residence in Lungujja near Busega on August 29. They were driven away in her own vehicle, a Spacio registration no. UBA 570V. The car was later abandoned in Kitooro Zone in Nateete, Rubaga division.

Nagirinya’s body on Friday discovered alongside Kitayimbwa’s dumped near a swamp at Nakitutuli along the Mukono-Kayunga road in Nama sub-county.

Minister Janet Museveni said this in the post on her Facebook page. Janet wrote: “I have received reports of students who missed writing their final UNEB exams on account of their schools’ refusal to allow them to sit exams because of school fees balances. This is against standing government policy. No school administrator is allowed to stop any UNEB registered candidate from sitting his/Her final exams because of unpaid school fees balances.”

She added, “Exam results however of the candidate can be withheld by the school administrators until he/she has cleared all outstanding fees. I have accordingly instructed the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Education & Sports and the Executive Secretary UNEB to investigate this matter and take the necessary action.”

On Monday, 15 candidates at Top Care Secondary School in Iganga District were stopped from from sitting for Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) by the school authorities over school balances.

Ugandans Who Will Refuse To Sign On ICC Petition To Have M7 Indicted Will Be Committing Treason – Besigye…

Published

on

Four-time presidential aspirant, Col. Kizza Besigye has warned Ugandans who are planning to dodge the signing of the petition entitled: “Uganda people’s petition to International Criminal Court” that they will be committing treason according to Article 3 of the constitution.

According to Besigye, all Ugandans are held responsible to fight for their fundamental rights and other rights granted by the constitution.

“Every person has a responsibility of protecting his or her rights, if you see someone abusing your right then you have to deal with that person in courts of law, since the constitution under Article 3 allows you to fight for your rights, Ugandans who have declined to sign on the petition are committing treason,” Besigye said.

He said this at the people’s government offices along Katonga road in Kampala where he officially lunched the signing of the petition that is aimed at compelling ICC to summon president Museveni.

In a meeting attended by Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, Ken Lukyamuzi, Leader of Opposition Betty Aol Ochan and other the opposition members, Besigye said that the petition is a universal petition that caters for all Ugandans both in Uganda and abroad who have been victims of Museveni’s torture and his poor governance.

“The petition is for all Ugandans, its intended to bring peace to all, we need Museveni out of power with the help of ICC since he cannot handover peacefully,” he insisted.

“Anybody aggrieved with Museveni’s policies of violating our rights like freedom of speech and expression, freedom of assembly and right to life should provide evidence and join in the signing of petition,” he said.

He further urged all police persons and military to abandon violating commands that are given to them by their Commander in Chief.

“The police should work for Ugandans, they should abandon the violating commands that are given to them by Museveni because everyone is accountable for the crimes they commit, no one will ask for who ordered you. Look at Kayihura now, he is suffering alone though he was working on Museveni’s orders,” Besigye added.

He revealed that the petition will be wired online for all Ugandans both in Uganda and abroad to sign.

“Our petition is going to be wired online and links are going to be circulated for those outside Uganda,” he said. He further urged NRM members who have known the weaknesses of President Museveni to join the petition for a better tomorrow.

“Members from the NRM party who understand the weaknesses of their president should join us because this is about Museveni not NRM. Members of other opposition parties and movements like Hon: Kyagulanyi, Gen. Mugisha Muntu, Nobert Mao and other leaders, join us and we defend our country from dictators,” Besigye rallied.

According to Besigye, the process of signing the will take long period of time since they plan to spread it country wide.

Sipapa, Full Figure Are Using M7’s Money To Kill Us: Music Promotors Bajjo, Abitex Cry Out ….

Published

Abitex and Bajjo addressing journalists

Events promoters Andrew Mukasa alias Bajjo events and Abbey Musinguzi alias Abitex have pinned socialite Charles Olim alias Sipapa and Jennifer Nakaguubi alias Full Figure of using the millions of money given to them by president Yoweri Museveni to kill them.

Bajjo told journalist in Kampala that on Wednesday evening, he survived being killed by armed hooligans holding machetes at Makindye, a Kampala suburb.

“I have audio recordings of that fool Sipapa and Full Figure strategizing on how to finish our lives. I heard Full figure tipping Sipapa to tell his gangs to locate us and kill us using stones,” Bajjo said.

He revealed that when he received an audio from a friend, they decided to run away from Baba TV where they had been hosted for a talk show. He said that when they reached Makindye, a group of people attacked them with machetes and stoned his car. Abitex said that he received credible information from state house that both Sipapa and Full Figure told Museveni that they know Abitex and Bajjo and that they will help him silence them at all cost.

Abitex warned that the act of giving people free money will increase criminality in the country because people will start thinking that they don’t have to work but can always be given free money. Both promotors filed their complaints at Katwe police station. Full figure was not reached for comment since she was not picking our calls.

PROMOTORS LIKELY TO LOSS BILLIONS

Earlier, lawyer Erias Lukwago, who was  representing the two promoters pleaded with High Court judge Lydia Mugambe Ssali to save his clients from losing billions of money and jobs in the coming 2019 festival season. Lukwago submitted that the directive issued by the Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola stopping his clients from organizing musical concerts will deny them employment since their source of income are the music shows.

Lukwago told court that his clients lost over Shs200m when Ochola stopped their concerts at Busabala, Gulu Lira and other places yet they had already paid all the necessary requirements including security.

The presiding judge Ssali asked both applicants why they didn’t proceed with organizing concerts of other musicians because it seems the IGP only stopped them from organizing Bobi Wine’s concerts.

Lukwago with people power lawyer Shamim Malende tried to plead to Ssali to accommodate their matter before the Christmas festival because it’s the period when his clients work more.

This was after judge Ssali had told them that she was assigned to go to high court criminal division to handle very serious criminal cases.

However, after Lukwago’s plea, Justice Ssali changed her mind and asked Lukwago to take their file back to the registrar so that it can be allocated to another judge which Lukwago refused. Mugambe further advised the applicants to stop exaggerating their case. The judge ordered both parties to submit written submissions instead of oral as Lukwago was proposing. The matter was adjourned to 13 December.
