    I Used To Be A Big Man, Big Size, Today, I’m Nothing – Robert Kabushenga Reveals Humbling Life Experiences After Quitting Vision Group…

    Former Vision Group boss, Robert Kabushenga

    Former Vision Group boss, Robert Kabushenga has revealed how life outside Vision Group has given him experiences that have humbled him the most.

    Kabushenga who served at Vision group as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) from October 2006 until January 2021 when he called it quits noted that his life has turned up side down.

    After quitting Vision Group, Kabushenga resorted to full-time coffee farming at his Rugyeyo farm in Wakiso district where he is also minting millions of money but people no longer care about his existence or who he used to be any more.

    Kabushenga shared his experience in a video on his socials describing his new life as ‘very humbling’ since resigning from his full-time job.

    According to Kabushenga, he used to be accorded much respect while making people sit at the reception to wait for him but now it’s him to wait for them.

    “I have been humbled by the experiences of life, the most recent one was leaving my former work, I used to be a big man, big boy, and big size. Today, zero!” Kabushenga said.

    Kabushenga further noted that he never imagined that a day would come when he would also have to wait at the reception to see someone and on top of that not even be recognized and has to first introduce himself and seek appointments before meeting the so-called bosses.

    He narrated, “So, I go somewhere to see a big man like Mukisa. I must also first stop at the reception. There’s one famous question that people used to ask when coming to see me, now, I am the one asking it; is the big man there?

    “Then the girl tells you, ‘umm let me find out.’ Then she first goes on the phone. So you wait, you stand there. Then she rings and then they tell her he’s in.

    “Then she says, he’s there but I think he is in a meeting.I tell him you’re who? And then I say, tell him I am Kabushenga. She asks, Kabushenga of where? I reply, a ‘street vendor’’

    After facing the real-life experiences, Kabushenga noted that he has realized that one should not go around throwing their weight and that people must learn to be polite to people.

    “Life goes on, you realize that not everybody knows you. Even those who do, don’t care. And if you want to get along you say, ‘I’m sorry but tell him if he’s busy, I can come back. So, you sit at the reception quietly,” he added.

    While quitting Vision Group last year, Kabushenga disclosed that he had resigned for personal reasons and asked the board for an early retirement which was accepted.

    “I am proud of the success we achieved and the impact we have had in society. This was possible because we worked together as a team. For me, it was an absolute honour and pleasure to have done so’’ Kabushenga said in his resignation letter.

    Kabushenga joined Vision Group as CEO in 2006 replacing William Pike. He previously worked as Executive Director of the Uganda Media Centre as well as the government spokesperson.

    He had earlier worked as Board Secretary for New Vision for three years until 2005, as a company secretary and legal officer as well as a legal administration officer for Monitor Publications limited.

    Having joined at a time when the company was transitioning from a government-owned media to a partially private listed company, Kabushenga had the challenge of restructuring the company to become competitive and answerable to shareholders who demanded profit.

    Under his tenure, Vision Group expanded its portfolio from its primary print holdings to include broadcast and digital media, such as Bukedde TV, TV West, and Urban TV. It also expanded to include radio and TV stations in Southwestern, Eastern, and Northern Uganda.

    The group launched its global mobile application (E-Paper) in 2015 but disabled it in 2019. They later upgraded it in 2020 into a one-stop point for all its platforms.

    Vision group also signed partnerships to promote the Uganda film industry, a legacy that Uganda cannot take for granted all courtesy of Kabushenga.

    IMPUNITY: Ugly Side That Bebe Cool Is Hiding In Late Night Bar Brawl Story; Did His ‘Kanyamas’ Beat Security Officer! Shocking Details On Man Who Allegedly Knocked His V8…

    Published

    on

    Musician Bebe Cool

    New details have emerged on the scuffle involving musician Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool and an unknown security person who wanted to shoot him.

    The unknown person, who was at the bar during the incident, shared what he saw on social media detailing what happened.

    He disclosed that he has read various social media comments where Bebe is using the advantage of his popularity and huge social media following to twist the story and hide the truth.

    The unknown person narrated,” As I retired from the bar, time was about 2am, I found over 5 hugely built men surrounding a saloon car and one of the men was shouting at his loudest.

    “I realized it is one of my favourite singers, Bebe Cool who was shouting. I tried to ask some of the people who were also watching the fracas from a distance on what was going on.

    “I was informed that a drunkard had knocked Bebe Cool’s V8 as he attempted reverse in the parking. Of course, there is no way many of us would pick our cars to go home until the matter was settled. The crowds kept growing, and I had to move near to watch what was happening.”

    He recounted that as he got nearer, he saw one of the men (Kanyama) pushing his hand in the saloon car which he later realised was a Benz fighting to pull out the car key.

    He narrated that he later learnt he was acting on orders from Bebe Cool who insisted that the drunkard should be arrested as he called out his military guard and other security guards of the bar to take action.

    The unknown person revealed that, “The person who was inside the small car whom Bebe Cool called a drunkard had lowered the windscreen to talk to the kanyamas, that is how one of the Kanyama managed to pull out the car key, and in a blink of an eye, they pulled out the man as they beat him.

    “In the process of roughing him up on handcuffs, I realized he had a gun which had fallen and Bebe Cool and his Kanyama whom I learnt is called Cobra had got the gun. Bebe Cool started shouting as they slapped the man already on handcuffs that he was armed. It is from there that they all understood that the man was a security officer otherwise how could he be armed.

    “I also realized that he was not as drunk as Bebe Cool kept referring to him because he kept very calm and engaging Bebe Cool that this was not a matter that should be escalated.”

    He added that the man’s shirt had been torn and he was clearly embarrassed.

    He divulged, “Because had he been that drunk and armed, I don’t think he would allow to lower his windscreen to talk to ‘Kanyamas’ who dragged him out of the car.”

    He still disclosed that Bebe Cool had called police who came with a patrol truck and threw him on as he was handcuffed.

    He disclosed, “One of the men who I think works at the bar and was talking to Bebe Cool all the time, had been with the car key of the man and entered his car to give way for Bebe Cool and all followed the police truck.

    “So, I wondered why would you drive a car of a man who could have been a security officer. Even not being a security officer why would u drive someone’s car who he is not around and has not authorized you to?”

    To his surprise, however, he woke up in shock of what he was seeing on social media claiming it was full of Bebe Cool’s posts about the incident but he hid some facts as he (unknown person) stated them.

    He divulged that, “I have also watched TV and he still saying the same things. I have also seen on TV that indeed the man was a soldier.

    “I saw a police officer who speaks for police saying this man was admitted, I want to believe so, because the way the ‘kanyamas’ beat him anyone would be admitted. One Kanyama punched him on the jaw and he fell down.

    “At that time, if it were me and I had a gun I can surely spray bullets.

    “As I conclude I want to caution fellow Ugandans let’s be civil. Several times I have seen people involved in a fracas because of an accident.

    “Why would you beat someone that has knocked you? Is there any person who wakes up and goes on the road to knock the other? A car is not God. A car irrespective of the model, whether range rover or V8 or Benz, can be repaired.”

    POLICE SPEAK OUT ON THE INCIDENT.

    Addressing press today, Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said that they received complaints from musician Bebe Cool accusing a security personnel, a one Capt. Namara for allegedly knocking his car which caused a fight.

    “According to Bebe Cool, he alleged that one of our security personnel pulled out his gun and he called his security guards who removed it from him and up to now, we have it,” Owoyesigyire said.

    He however noted that even the security personnel is nursing wounds having been badly beaten by Bebe Cool’s bodyguards.

    “We are investigating two cases that involve an alleged accident by our security personnel and also pulling out a gun.”

    He also added that they will get statements from different witnesses so they can come up with a final statement.

    UMA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SPEAKS OUT.

    Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) presidential candidate, Semanda Mansur alias King Saha has said that Bebe Cool is known for being naughty.

    “He is ever making mistakes, he makes small and huge mistakes, however, I condemn the act of pulling out a gun. Otherwise, he (Bebe Cool) should reduce his stubbornness, everyone should know where he stops,” Saha said.

    He however promised that as an upcoming President for UMA, he is going to investigate the matter and find out the cause of the incident.

    Her Acts Of Adultery Embarrassed Me – Court Gives Tough Orders To Archbishop Ntagali’s Side Dish In Divorce With Husband…

    Published

    Kabale Chief Magistrate’s Court has given tough orders while allowing Ms. Judith Tukamuhabwe, a former side dish to retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Stanley Ntagali to divorce her husband, Rev. Christopher Tugumehabwe.

    On Friday, Racheal Tabaruka, the Grade One magistrate of Kabale Court dissolved the marriage between Rev. Tugumehabwe and his wife Ms. Judith Tukamuhabwe and directed each party to bear their own costs.

    “A decree nisi is granted, dissolving the marriage between the petitioner and the respondent,” Tebaruka ruled.

    She directed that from the date of her ruling, Ms. Tukamuhabwe should stop using Rev. Tugumehabwe’s name on all her documents because they are no longer married.

    However, the magistrate dismissed Rev. Tugumehabwe’s prayer to force his wife to pay him Shs.31m which he used to purchase a car for her.

    The magistrate instead directed Ms. Tukamuhabwe to produce the motor vehicle, a Toyota Rav4 registration number UBG 265T to Court for market valuation before it is auctioned.

    She directed that once the car in contention is sold, Ms. Tukamuhabwe should be given 58% of the proceeds and the remaining amount can be taken by Rev. Tugumehabwe.

    The magistrate also dismissed Ms. Tukamuhabwe’s prayer that they share all the properties they had in their marriage.

    In 2020, Ms. Tukamuhabwe, through her lawyers of New Mark Advocates petitioned Court seeking for divorce accusing her husband of deserting her without a reason. She further accused him of harassing and insulting her.

    However, before the hearing kicked off, Rev. Tugumehabwe also submitted a cross petition asking court to dissolve their marriage on grounds that Ms. Tukamuhebwa was sleeping with several men.

    He further told the Court that because of his wife’s adulterous acts, he has suffered public embarrassment especially when Ms. Tukamuhabwe cheated on him with high profile persons (Archbishop Ntagali).

    It should be remembered that Ntagali admitted that he slept with Ms. Tukamuhebwa, a married woman.

    Ntagali asked for forgiveness from the church leaders and Rev. Tugumuhabwe himself.

    Ms. Tukamuhebwa Married Rev. Tukamuhabwa on December 15, 2018, at Rugarama Cathedral of Church of Uganda in Kabale.

    She filed for divorce two years later in December 2020.

    During the two years of marriage, the couple had one child who surprisingly Ms. Tukamuhebwa said does not belong to Rev. Tugumuhabwe.

    Ms. Tukamuhebwa also had two kids from previous relations before marrying Rev. Tugumuhabwe.
