I Am Going To Bewitch Someone – New Vision’s Tegusulwa Warns Boss Kabushenga After Being Served With Forced Leave Letter…..

Tegusulwa and Kabushenga (inset)

New Vision’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Robert Kabushenga is in fear for his dear life after being threatened with witchcraft for sending staff on forced leave for three months.

A credible source at Vision group has told the Grapevine that on Thursday afternoon, Tegusulwa, who anchors a motivation slot ‘Toli Mwavu Mutwe gwo gwe mwavu’ on Bukedde TV was among the staff who were served with letters sending them on forced leave by NV’s Human Resource Manager.

This did not augur well for Tegusulwa who first thought that it was a joke since he considers himself as one of the essential staff at vision group given his vast experience and dynamism.

With the forced leave letter in his hands, Tegusulwa, a law student at Kampala International University (KIU) did not believe what he was reading. He immediately stormed Kabushenga’s office for an explanation insisting that it was a mistake to serve him.

Kabushenga boldly informed him that it was not a mistake but the company had decided to send some of the staff home as they try to weather the COVID19 storm.

This website has been reliably informed that Tegusulwa pleaded with Kabushenga to change his mind because he has a lot of responsibilities like paying his tuition at KIU and taking care of his family but all these pleas fell on deaf ears. Kabushenga insisted that it was the company stand.

He further told Tegusulwa that it was not a personal decision and he should not take it personal on him or the Human Resource Manager to the extent of not greeting them when they meet.

When Tegusulwa left the CEOs office, he stormed Bukedde TV newsroom and threatened that, ‘I think I should now turn to witchcraft and bewitch this man’.

In the letter, Tegusulwa is going to be paid half of his salary which means he is going to be paid Shs.500, 000 for upkeep during the forced leave.

However, this website has learnt that some of the staff sent on forced leave like James Serunkuuma the Manager of Bukedde TV 2 had refused to vacate office but Kabushenga ordered security not to allow any of them to access their offices.

Efforts to speak to Tegusulwa were futile.

It should be remembered that two weeks back, Kabushenga issued a memo to all the New Vision staff that the company no longer has money to cater for all of them due to the economic crisis brought by COVID19 pandemic.

Balaam Asks For Shs.1billion From Kabushenga Led Kampala Sun For Portraying Him As A Fraudster And Extortionist…

Published

It seems the troubles of Robert Kabushenga led Vision Group are not about to end.

This is after events promoter and National Resistance Movement (NRM) party diehard Balaam Barugahara threatened to sue them if he is not compensated with Shs.1bn.

Through his lawyers of Isabirye and Company Advocates, Balaam claims that, Vision Group, through its weekly newspaper the Kampala Sun defamed him when they alleged that he was muscling Uganda Cranes players for a share of money allegedly paid to them by President Museveni.

“Needless to say, that the publication was false, baseless and not with any truth but has none the less damaged the reputation of our client in a manner that is irreparable, as when construed and contextualized in its natural, and ordinary meaning, or by innuendo, said article is understood to mean and to suggest that Mr. Balaam Barugahara, our client, is a criminal, an immoral and indefensible man,” Balaam’s lawyers stated in their letters.

They insist that the Kampala Sun article under the headline ‘Balaam harasses Uganda Cranes over Sevo Cash’ negatively impacted on the integrity of their client, demeaned his reputation in his capacity as a businessman and a family man in the eyes of reasonable Ugandans, East Africans, Africans and the world at large to the extent of him being viewed as a fraudster and extortionist.

“In addition to causing him to limit his interaction with his peers, contemporaries, business partners and colleagues in order for him to avoid the contempt and ridicule that he suffers when amongst them, this emotional suffering has caused him to suffer stress and affected his moods and behavior in a depressing manner,” the lawyers added.

They claim that because of such suffering, their client demands a public apology for the claimed false story and compensation of Shs.1bn.

They gave vision group only three days from yesterday to do so.

Last week, Uganda Communications Commissions (UCC) suspended Urban TV’s Scoop on Scoop gossip show after socialite Sheilah Gashumba petitioned the commission over defamatory statements from the show host Tina Fierce against her. Urban TV is another Vision Group product. Sheilah also asked for Shs.400 million compensation.

URA Speaks Out On The Fate Of The New 150 Recruits Who Are Struggling Financially After Resigning From Their Jobs During Covid19 Crisis….

Published

on

Uganda Revenue Authority finally speaks out on the fate of the 150 new recruits who were given appointment letters to join the national tax collecting body.

Vincent Seruma the Authority’s Director for corporate affairs and communication said that they know them but the situation right now cannot allow them to accommodate the new recruits.

He explained that due to COVID19 crisis, the Authority was forced to even send half of its staff to work from home.

He noted that they did that to respect the social distancing directive in the fight against COVID19 pandemics.

The soft spoken Seruma disclosed that they explained to the new recruits but it seems they didn’t understand that is why they are running allover claiming that they were dumped.

On the issue of paying them, Seruma said that they will start receiving their salaries and other allowances when they report to their working station.

Over the weekend, over 20 new URA recruits approached this website complaining that they were dumped by their new bosses because of COVID19 crisis.

They said that on 11th March 2020, over 150 of them received appointment letters confirming them as URA staff after going through a series of interviews.

They claimed that all the new recruits, were supposed to work in the domestic and customs department and were supposed to report to their new stations on 23rd march 2020.

They claimed that when the president declared a nationwide lockdown over COVID19 pandemic, their reporting date was extended.

They explained that they went through a lot of financial hardship since many of them had resigned from their previous jobs in the middle of the month of March.

They claimed that since March, they haven’t received any salary from URA and they are now suffering at home. President Museveni declared a cleanup exercise in URA where a number of staff were fired including their boss Doris Akol who was replaced with John Rujoki Musinguzi.
