    General Yoweri Museveni has met top security bosses over rampant kidnap and violation of human rights of innocent Ugandans.

    Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo confirmed the meeting which took place at State House Entebbe.

    According to Ofwono, the meeting was summoned by the president to discuss the rampant kidnap and human rights violation.

    “As we discuss now, the president is in the meeting with security bosses and the main issue on the agenda is the rampant kidnap and violation of human rights. The government particularly the president is very concerned and on Saturday he will address the nation about the security of the country,” Ofwono said during NBS TV’s Frontline talk show.

    This is the second time the president is meeting security bosses after meeting them early this week and firing Brigadier General Jeff Mukasa, the former Director Counter Terrorism.

    According to Lt. Col. Deo Akiiki, the deputy spokesperson of UPDF, Brig. Gen. Mukasa was transferred to command the School of Military Intelligence (SOMI).

    Ofwono explained that Brig. Gen. Mukasa is under investigation on the directives of the Commander in Chief President Museveni for sleeping on the job while his juniors were brutally arresting poor Ugandans especially youths.

    He added that the president directed the security authorities to take disciplinary action against errant operatives who violate the forces’ rules when conducting security operations and arrests.

    Security sources who spoke to theGrapevine on condition of anonymity said that Museveni directed Maj. Gen. Paul Lokech, the deputy Inspector General of Police to lead the operations against security operatives who are violating the rights of Ugandans.

    Ofwono confirmed that a number of operatives from JATT were arrested and are in detention in different army barracks.

    Credible sources in the State House told theGrapevine that the old man from Rwakitura is under pressure from the international community over the rampant violation of human rights and some countries under the European Union parliament have threatened to slap sanction on top government officials.

    However, in an interview with Bukedde television, Lt. Gen. Proscovia Nalweyiso revealed that a number of the said people being kidnapped are in the custody of the security organisation and very soon they will be produced in Courts of law.

    She added that many of the said kidnapped people were arrested in connection with the November 2020 Bobi Wine riots.

    Heartless Thug Beaten To Near Death After Stealing From Dying Accident Victims Along Jinja Road…

    Published

    on

    A yet to be identified thug was clobbered to pulp after he tried to steal money and mobile phones from two people who died following a nasty accident that occurred in Kireka, along Jinja Road, on Thursday.

    According to ASP Luke Owoyesigire, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy publicist, the police are conducting investigations into the fatalities involving  two motorcycles and one van.

    According to eyewitnesses, two boda-boda riders, who both eventually died, collided while riding from opposite directions, whereby a Toyota Noah van rammed into them uncontrollably after they had crashed on the tarmac following their collision.

    Only one of the two victims has since been identified as Akram Sejjemba.

    Owoyesigire said that; “The police have confirmed that the van driver identified as Rashid Kigenyi, is in custody to help with investigations.”

    He added that; “The bodies of the deceased persons have been conveyed to city mortuary Mulago for postmortem.”

    However, tragic drama ensued at the scene when one of the supposed rescuers dug into the pockets of the victims to steal money only to be pounced on by other rescuers who taught him a lesson.

    Other rescuers on the scene, most of them boda-boda riders noticed it, immediately nabbed him and started  interrogating him but each question came slaps, blows in his face, kicks and all sorts of battering.

    The unidentified thug was later whisked away by Police to save him from the angry mob. But by the time police arrived, he had already been beaten to pulp. He looked so helpless and senseless after the thorough beating.

    The citizens were however so bitter with the police for reaching the scene so late to save the victims who didn’t die on the spot, yet they arrived in time to save a thief from being lynched.

    CELEBRITY GOSSIP

    Valentine’s Day Is Passing: No Roses For Stella Nyanzi. She Is Sitting Alone Away From Home In Kenya. Where’s Her Boyfriend?

    Published

    on

    Unlike the past two Valentine’s Day celebrations, Dr. Stella Nyanzi will not be getting any flowers today from her passionate lover.

    The feminist and political activist fled to Kenya days back to seek asylum with her three children. And her People Power die hard lover, David Musiri’s whereabouts still remain a mystery.

    David Musiri and Stella Nyanzi have taken turns to spend time behind bars for their provocative activism against the regime.

    The outspoken Dr. Nyanzi claims that her partner was abducted and tortured after last month’s elections.

    After the polls in January, Museveni was re-elected for a sixth term after 35 years of rule, amid a nationwide internet shutdown and heavy security presence in the capital, Kampala, that prevented more mass protests on election week. Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, rejected the election as rigged up to now. He has a case in court against Mr. Museveni.

    Nyanzi, who had also contested for the Kampala Woman Member Of Parliament but didn’t win the seat claims that a week after the vote, her partner, David Musiri, a staunch member of Bobi Wine’s National Unity Platform (NUP) was abducted from his car along with his brother.

    She said, “David was pushed into the boot of a private saloon car and driven off to an unmarked facility where he was tortured during interrogation,” Nyanzi said. “His genitals were squeezed so badly, his body was beaten and bruised, and nobody knew where he was for a couple of days.”

    It’s not a mere coincidence though that Valentine’s day brings back so many memories to Nyanzi’s mind; mixed with good and bad evocations, to form a sweet and yet sour taste.

    Nyanzi recounted how on Valentine’s day 2019, probably their first together, her lover, David Musiri gifted her a rose when she was a remanded prisoner in a maximum security prison.

    “The cheap artificial rose flower he brought me carried me through long cold days and nights. It assured me of his love for me even after my womb had lost our only child together,” she said.

    Nyanzi claims she had just suffered a miscarriage of their baby because of torture by prison wardresses.

    A year on, Valentine’s Day 2020 came, and her lover took for her a bouquet of fresh roses, chocolates and apples.

    “He came along with two female friends dressed in red and black. I was a convicted prisoner – still in maximum security prison. I had served fifteen months of a sentence that was later to be declared unlawful,” Dr. Nyanzi said.

    “The fresh rose flowers were surreal in prison. They reassured me of my man’s love even when I was a wrongly sentenced prisoner,” Nyanzi revealed.

    Roughly the 3rd year into Musiri’s romance with Nyanzi, and Valentine’s Day 2021 will only bring back memories of his roses to haunt Nyanzi in exile.

    “I fled from home last month, refusing to become a prisoner of conscience again.

    In the safety of this neighbouring foreign land, I long for deep red rose flowers brought to me in the hands of a lover.

    In this land of newfound protection and safety,” she disclosed.

    The former Makerere research fellow said, admitting that she yearns for the tender look from a youthful Musiri who shamelessly lusts for her.

    “A fresh rose for me in exile would be a miracle! Even a cheap artificial rose would do wonders. Love is love, even in exile,” the doctor poetically narrated.
