    Gen . Muhoozi Is Vying For Presidency Not For Archbishop Or Sheikh, He Is Free To Drink His Favorite Champagne…

    Published

    on

    First and foremost, I pity whoever undermines Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s natural intellect because their criticisms are baseless.

    These critisms emanate from statements always made by Gen.Muhoozi on social media but he intentionally makes those unforgettable and controversial comments to draw attention to himself and he has tactically achieved his long life ambition of capturing the public attention and in reality, Gen. Muhoozi is now politically charged, unstoppable and untouchable in the arena of politics.

    He recently made it clear that he is an adult and no one can stop him from doing anything.

    Some political adolescents will ignorantly say that Muhoozi is in bad terms with his father which is untrue.

    The gist of the matter is that everything is well thought out and planned therefore the supporters of MK project should start buying suits for inauguration ceremonies

    The logic of politics is not complex. In fact, it is surprisingly clear that NO one can defeat Gen. Muhoozi even President Museveni may not defeat him for one fundemental reason, Ugandans want a new face of the president and Gen. Muhoozi is now selling like a hot cake and to be sincere, the MK mighty force has outshined the people power gang on social media.

    Currently, Muhoozi’s message is on unification of East Africa and supporting youths’ interests and we must acknowledge Gen Muhoozi’s intervention in Uganda–Rwanda relation.

    His statements on Kenya, Ethiopia, Russia were calculated and he has been able to capture international recognition.

    We must understand that Gen. Muhoozi is highly trained from the best military academies in the world and he is naturally intelligent though he has been an introvert all along and some narrow minded critics could underestimate him from that baseless analogy but in reality, Gen. Muhoozi is a reader and open minded free thinker.

    His approach on issues seems sophisticated and this has created a false image about him but realistically you can’t act normally in the abnormal conditions

    His counterattack aggressive arguments have made him to be over the top and he has tactically neutralized and silenced his long life critics though the attack is always aggressive but logically compounded.

    You all remember how he silenced Gen. Mugisha Muntu and to be frank Gen. Muhoozi respects Gen. Muntu so much but in politics you must make yourself brightly larger and outshine your opponents which he has vehemently and fearless achieved

    Currently, Gen. Muhoozi is the only hope for Ugandans and he has been termed as a generational leader and a revolutionist and it’s not that he is the best but most Ugandans lost trust and hope in Ugandan opposition politicians and those who are still fundamentally relevant have lost popularity in the population because they failed to produce a baby when they were energetically young.

    Truth must be said, these fellows are ageing to menopause and we shall be dreaming to expect anything new from the same old players and other good fellow, his politics and ideas are extremely fantastic but can well be practiced in Europe but not in Africa

    I started to believe that Museveni was sent by God. Look at how his strong opponent is behaving with his colonial mindset and hate utterances such as “Spread the gospel of change and expose the dictator” and Museveni is not a Ugandan! The fundamental question is; “to whom is he exposing the dictator? Which sane politicians wastes much of their time traveling to Europe and America to fight the regime? Who lied to this fellow that NRM regime can be removed by the Americans? Ugandans were almost conned by a populist celebrity as if Uganda was short of leaders

    The Muhoozi Project has gained unmeasurable momentum and interestingly, it is spearheaded by the winning coalition and these include military officers, senior civil servants.

    I have been in most military barracks like Bombo, Mbuya and Makenke and I discovered one thing, Gen. Muhoozi is highly respected unanimously and undoubtedly recognized as the next president of Uganda. Another group that has been at the forefront of the project is the real selectorate and these include all political leaders and RDCs, their influence is very paramount.

    The big event on the way is the global patriotic youth conference organized by Gen. Muhoozi and this is going to be the biggest challenge to his critics who have been using propaganda and malice branding him as a regular drinker.

    If he is a regular drinker like they allege, then he must be drinking for a special medicine because he is doing well in life but look these presidents who have been heavy and regular drinkers; Goodluck Jonathan missed his slot to address the AU conference in Ethiopia because he was too drunk to walk, Uhuru Kenyatta’s red eyes were as a result of sleepless nights though his handlers once said that he spends nights in presidential office working but we knew the truth, Mwai Kibaki was a regular drinker and he was forced to quit the habit after a serious motor accident in 2002, Edgar Lungu collapsed on podium while presiding over a womens Day celebration in Lusaka and his office blamed his fall to malaria and diabetes but the cause could have been different.

    Therefore Gen. Muhoozi is vying for presidency not for Archbishop or sheikh for that matter using alcohol to criticize him for presidency is cheap and pointless.

    Gen. Muhoozi has never committed any crime on account of being drunk not even fighting or shooting at the people and he has been sober minded and in any case Muhoozi is the First Son but he has never stepped on anyone except the serial abusive writer Kankwenza who really started the fight. You can’t put a finger in a snake’s mouth and you except it to be massaged.

    I believe Gen. Muhoozi can openly campaign and win the elections because he has 3M’s that is money, media and military but I think President Museveni should first appoint him as the vice president as he watches over on how he is doing the executive tasks because this will help him to build a formidable coalition in his next government.

    Who Are The 26 Corrupt High Profile Public Officers Set To Vomit Shs.18.2 Billion? Parliament Tasks Minister…

    Published

    on

    Mityana District Woman MP, Joyce Bagala

    Members of Parliament have moved a motion that Anti-corruption day funds should be earmarked to victims of corruption.

    Appearing before Parliament during plenary that was presided over by Deputy Speaker, Rt. Hon. Thomas Tayebwa, Mityana District Woman Member of Parliament, Joyce Bagala noted that a lot of statistics on money purportedly tracked down, saved and sometimes recovered is not backed by faces that allegedly stole such funds.

    Bagala contended that the minister reported investigation of 26 high-profile cases.

    “We need to know who these high profile public officers are and what was the outcome of the reported investigations warranting recovery of shs18.2 billion,” she said.

    Bagala’s statements follow a report from the State Minister for Ethics and Integrity, Rose Lilly Akello who noted that the Inspector General of Government (IGG) has investigated 26 high-profile cases and directed the recovery of Shs.30 billion, 86 cases were prosecuted and 34 convictions secured whereas the Auditor General made audits which led to recovery of shs.175 billion.

    She added that the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) of the police has registered 318 cases and through prosecutions and recovered Shs.615 billion.

    This comes ahead of the International Anti-Corruption day set to be held on Friday December, 9, 2022.

    During plenary today, Mityana Municipality Woman MP however insisted that the shs.452 million earmarked for the International Anti-Corruption Day should be re-channelled to victims of corruption.

    “The victims of corruption are mothers who die during childbirth due to inefficiencies in the health sector public schools without toilets and communities without clean water. The activities of the anti-corruption day would make sense by thinking of those affected by corruption.

    Kazo County MP, Dan Kimosho asked whether they can look at a sector approach and see what cases are investigated and what is done against the officers.

    “We cannot keep carrying the burden for the corrupt. Whoever comes here should be specific and not demoralize those who are working hard,” he said.

    Ntoroko Constituency MP, Gerald Rwemulitya also urged people fighting corruption to be free and bold adding that there are people shielding the corrupt.

    He propounded, “You here, ‘call from above, he is from my region & religion’. This vice has no side. We need to start attaching property of the corrupt.”

    Leader of Opposition, Mathias Mpuuga however moved a motion that the shs.452 meant for marking the anti-corruption day should be channelled to ‘the victims of corruption in Ibanda District’.

    He wondered why they should put this money to tents, balloons and chairs and yet victims of corruption are around.

    The 3rd Deputy Prime Minister, Hon Rukia Nakadama however revealed that preparations for the anti-corruption day commended earlier, insisting that preparations are already in high gear and some activities have already taken place and so if there is need in the near future, they should come early.

    FOR PRAISING M7: Medical Association President Steps Down To Allow Independent Investigations..

    Dr. Oledo praising President Museveni at Kololo Grounds

    The President of the Uganda Medical Association (UMA), Dr. Samuel Oledo, has stepped aside to allow independent investigations, according to Dr. Luswata Herbert, the Secretary General.

    Last week, during the Patriotism and Youth Investment symposium, Dr. Oledo appreciated President Museveni for the great job when he decided that all scientists must be paid well.

    “We request that you increase the salaries of our brothers and sisters in uniform, the soldiers, Uganda People’s Association (UPDF) prisons, and others.”

    He went ahead and knelt before Museveni and asked him to stand again 2026.

    This has since been condemned by a number of people who have termed his acts of kneeling as disrespectful to the profession and asked that he should resign.

    On 4th December, 2022, UMA released a statement disassociating themselves from the actions of their President Dr. Dr. Samuel Oledo and his Kololo team.

    Their statement read, “Uganda Medical Association is non-partisan and therefore does not participate in political activities of a partisan nature. The current U.M.A President attended the particular meeting in his personal capacity but not as U.M.A and
    his communications at that meeting were not representing the official position(s) of UMA.

    “Uganda Medical Association dissociates itself from any and all partisan political actions or acts, and is constitutionally required to do so. U.M.A is committed to remain neutral to and to serve all Ugandan doctors and persons from all the political dispensations of, and in Uganda and globally.”

    Dr. Oledo’s team of medical personnel with President Museveni

    Today morning, Democratic Party member and Buikwe South Member of Parliament, Lulume Bayigga said that Dr. Oledo should be brought to book.

    Lulume made these remarks while appearing on NBS’ Morning Breeze today following an incident where Uganda Medical Association (UMA) president, Dr.Oledo Samuel was seen kneeling before the president and asking him to stand again in 2026.

    Dr. Lulume noted that when they were in medical school, they were taught to be respected professionals and serve their country by treating people.

    “The engagement we wanted the UMA president to be part of would be to advocate for the improved welfare of the medics to serve the country better,” he said.

    Dr. Lulume added that the people who followed Dr. Oledu were not from Uganda Medical Association, and that’s why Dr. Mirembe is distancing herself from the act (endorsing President Museveni).

    Dr. Joel Mirembe, a doctor at the UMA noted that they are not against Dr. Oledu and just like the UMA statement noted, whatever he did, he did it in his own capacity and so they are here to protect the Association.

    He adduced, “It is sad that the doctors leadership body is invited to discuss a topic of political succession. That is where the issue is.

    “We have reached out to Dr. Oledu and he is okay and safe. He hasn’t commented about his action, he seems not concerned about what is happening.”

    Dr. Lulume however insisted that UMA will continue with its aspirations because it is Constitutional but what Oledo did scandalized the whole Association, and he must be brought to book.

    “Impeachment is one of the reprimanding measures, but the doctors will take the decision.”

    Dr. Mirembe adduced that Dr. Oledo is the President of the Uganda Medical Association, but what he did was embarrassing and wrong for the profession.
