How Judiciary PS Kagole Kivumbi Spent Four Months Fidgeting With Accountability, Why Judiciary Staff Are Celebrating His Troubles

Published

on

The Grapevine has unearthed new shocking details of how judicial officers pocketed over shs34bn and failed to account for it. This week, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chaired by FDC secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi grilled Kagole Kivumbi, the Permanent Secretary (PS) to the judiciary after the Auditor General discovered that Kivumbi misappropriate part of the money allocated to the judiciary in the 2017/18 budget year. The fugitive Kagole first failed to appear before the committee and instead sent his lawyer to represent him claiming that he was sick but on Wednesday he was forced to appear in person.

Members on PAC were very shocked by the way Kivumbi failed to account for over shs34bn, they asked the police CID department to investigate Kagole and other judicial officers who are still at large.

On Thursday, the Grapevine landed on the shocking documents allegedly issued by nonsense Kivumbi to one of his colleagues on the accounts committee naming people who were given money but failed to account for it. “These were never inquired by the auditor general staff because they were beneficiaries of the rot and they were related to the Former accounting officer,” the handwritten document read in part.

Multiple sources confirmed to this website that the handwriting was for Kagole Kivumbi and he was fighting back and asking the charged Members of Parliament to exonerate him and put the burden on the named judicial officers.

KAGOLE SPENT FOUR MONTHS FIDGETING WITH ACCOUNTABILITY

Sources within the judiciary have further revealed to this website that upon learning that the auditor general had made a bad report against him, Kagole spent four months trying to cover up the gaps in the auditor general’s report. He started by building a lane for the disabled at High Court, renovated a number of courts and these include Buganda road court, Wakiso Court and High Court criminal division. Sources further pined Kagole for collaborating with suppliers of building materials to inflate the prices of pavers which were used in renovating the High Court criminal division.

They first sold each paver at shs1200 but when people started complaining about the price, the suppliers returned shs400 on each paver to the judiciary. Sources in the judiciary also accused Kagole of being behind the shs500m which was used in the hearing of the age limit case at the Supreme Court. Supreme Court Justice Faith Mwondah recently questioned the shs500m extravagant spending during the hearing of the age limit case yet judges are crying of poor pay and poor working conditions.

JUDICIARY STAFF CEREBRATES KAGOLE’S TROUBLES

Judiciary staff from the Supreme Court justices to the sweepers who exclusively spoke to this website are celebrating Kagole’s troubles.

“I am telling you when Dorcus Okalany was still here as the Permanent Secretary to the judiciary, we were very happy. Kagole promise us a lot but we have suffered during his period here. This is a man who doesn’t have respect to judges. It’s in his regime that judicial officers including judges have gone on strike,” one of the judicial officers told this website.

A court of appeal justice told this website that when Kagole took over office he stopped judicial officers from accessing his office including chief justice, his deputy and the principal judge. He further revealed that he even stopped picking their phone calls as Okalany used to do.

“Kagole even stopped judicial officers from using their official vehicles to do their personal work like taking their children to school. It was my sister justice Mwonda who refused to obey Kagole’s orders. She used the judiciary vehicle to take his grand children to school and one time the vehicle developed a mechanical problem and Kagole ordered her to repair it.

She turned tables and refused to repair the car,” a top court of Appeal judge said. Our source further added that judicial officers were even stopped from accessing courts on weekends even after claiming that they were using those weekends to do research and organize their worker. A top judge told this website that Kagole used to order high court judges to go up country to handle criminal court sessions without paying them but kept lying to them.

Ugandans Should Start Telling More Lies: Nambooze Attacks Museveni For Calling Buganda Katikkiro Mayiga A Liar

Published

on

Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze has rallied Ugandans to start telling more lies because the word has changed meaning and government officials are calling the truth lies and lies truth.

During his address to the nation yesterday evening at State House Nakasero, a furious Museveni warned Buganda Kingdom Prime Minister (Katikkiro) Charles Peter Mayiga to stop uttering nonsense concerning the registration of coffee growers.

“About the licensing of coffee, there is no license, this Katikkiro was telling lies. I sent a message to someone that this Katikkiro should stop this nonsense. He was lying, and he should stop. There is no licensing, what is happening is registering and the reason for registering is exporting,” Museveni said.

The president said that he was the one who ordered his cabinet minister of agriculture Vincent Sempijja to go and explain the Katikkiro what the government wants to achieve by registering Coffee farmers.

The president said as a cattle keeper from Ankole, he has been registered and they have their chairman.

It should be remembered that the Katikkiro, during the Buganda budget reading on Monday cautioned government the new laws which the government plans to slap on coffee growers in the country are in bad faith. It should be noted that coffee is one of the popular cash crops grown in Buganda region.  

In the same address, the president told security organs to stop arresting people for annoying him.

“I don’t mind being annoyed. I have no problem with being annoyed. That was a colonial law that I used to hear about. The bigger issue is telling lies, inciting and sedition. Those are the areas of substance that police should concentrate on,” Museveni said.

WHY ARE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS CALLING TRUTH LIES?

Mukono municipality legislator betty Nambooze Bakireke has attacked the president for calling Buganda Premier Chales Peter Mayiga a liar.

Through his Facebok page, Nambooze said, “At State House last evening Mr.Museveni called the Buganda Katikiro a lier and a perdon who speaks rubbish…. His I mention was to belittle the Katikiro for he Insisted that his interpreter Rose Namayanja gives his word their true meaning in Luganda. Mr.Museveni said that farmers are to be registered because foreign buyers if coffee want to trace the coffee bean right from the farmer…so because of this what the Katikiro is saying are lies and Nonsense!”

She adds, “In Parliament, State Minister Mutuuzo on the floor of Parliament said the same things about me… she said that I am a liar when I say that Ugandan girls in the Middle East are being enslaved. She justified her submission with telling Parliament that these girls bring in 600 million dollars in the economy annually…so because of this, I who was talking about their plight was a liar and speaking Nonsense.

I therefore wish to inform Ugandans who care for our country to start telling the lies and nonsense like the Katikiro….. The two words changed meaning, they mean to oppose policies, actions and laws that disfavor Ugandans by exchanging their rights with foreign interests.”

Don’t Be Stupid, You Are Fools To Think That Bujjingo’s Followers Will Run To Your Churches – Mirundi Blasts Pastors Kiganda And Bugembe, Reveals Shocking Information About Teddy

Published

on

Self-claimed media consultant Joseph Tamale Mirundi has blasted and warned pastors under the National Fellowship of Born-Again Pentecostal churches to stop celebrating house of prayers ministry international senior pastor Aloysius Bujjingo’s woes.

Mirundi said that born again pastors must learn that the reason why people are still at Bujjingo’s church is because of the miracles Bujjingo performs and his preaching and the day they discover that he no longer performs to their expectations, they will leave on their own.

“I was suprised to see the likes of pastor Bugembe, David Kiganda cerebrating the troubles of their fellow pastor Bujjingo stupidly, thinking that they will get his followers.  They don’t know the reasons behind Bujjingo’s problems, it’s a big scheme that can only be understood by us who eat enough food,” the celebrated political analysts stated. 

He wondered why Bishop David Kiganda sided with the mafias who want to put Bujjingo down yet he also once tested the bitterness of these mafias when he was embarrassed in public that his wife was snatched by a chapatti maker which was not true.

He insisted that the scheme to put Bugingo down was planned by mafias because of his steady progress spiritually and economically which made him a political threat to those who are fighting to succeed President Museveni.  A bitter Mirundi blasted the women who participated in the demonstration against Bujjingo saying that they were just hired as machineries to humiliate the man of God. 

He boasted that through his Mirundi Internal Security Organization (MISO), he has collected enough evidence pinning Naluswa that she was cursed by her father after conspiring with her mother to harass the old professor until he died.

The former press secretary to the president further blasted journalists who were beaten at Salt Media based home at Lugujja in Lubaga division, he branded them as machineries hired to tarnish Bujjingo’s name like they did to him during his tenure as the President’s press Secretary.

“I was accused and called all sorts of names, that man Kulubya of Bukedde even called me a mad,” a bitter Mirundi said.  The cerebrated journalist warned that if journalists don’t stop being used, the public will continue beating them up.  However, Mirundi blamed Bujjingo for miscalculating and always responding to his enemies.  He predicted that Bujjingo will not lose the battle though he must be prepared for the war if he is to decisively defeat his enemies.
