Inside Chaka Chaka Deportation: She Shouted At Police Officers Who Were Trying To Tell Her To Follow The Law And Demanded To Be Escorted To The Airport, Bobi Wine Supporters Should Stop Spinning The Story – Mwenda

Published

Journalist Andrew Mwenda has told People Power supporters to stop spinning the Chaka Chaka story.

In a post on his page, Mwenda said that he talked to Fox Odoi who gave him a detailed blow by blow account of what happened yesterday.

“Fox Odoi has given us the most actual account of what happened to Chaka Chaka. Attempts by some people to add the Bobi Wine spin on this story are both wrong and misguided. First let us let the facts speak for themselves,” Mwenda said.

Below is the account of what happened:

Yesterday in the morning I was at the Pearl of Africa Hotel when the Chaka Chaka saga happened.

  1. Police visited the hotel when Chaka Chaka was making her way out in a convoy of three vehicles . The police politely requested to have a discussion with her and her team. The discussions happened at the drop off area of the hotel.
  2. The police pointed out to Chaka Chaka and her team that they had credible information that she was about to engage in a commercial activity that would contravene the terms of her tourists Visa. That she didn’t declare the correct purpose of her visit both at the time of applying for the Visa and at the port of entry.
  3. The police requested Chaka Chaka and her team to stay at the hotel and refrain from the commission of Visa violations.
  4. Chaka Chaka was rather angry throughout the discussions and kept shouting at the police officers who, in all fairness remained professional.
  5. For some reason, Chaka and her crew had already paid their hotel bills and checked out.
  6. The police also insisted they needed a full disclosure of her itenary in order for the force to be able to offer sufficient protection for her team
  7. We intervened in the discussions and the police offered to drive Chaka Chaka’s promoters to the Ministry of Internal Affairs so they could apply for a Work Visa.
  8. Chaka Chaka declined.
    She demanded to be escorted to the airport and declared she was leaving the country. A number of us pleaded with her to give her team and the police time to sort out the Visa issue. She refused
  9. The police officers at the scene explained to her that their instructions were not to escort her to the airport. Their instructions were to ensure she doesn’t violate the conditions of her Visa. They spent quite some time consulting on phone before they were permitted to escort her to the airport as she had demanded.

“Where does the Bobi Wine story come in here? Police was willing to help her get a work visa and do her performance. Do many of us think Chaka Chaka should be allowed to violate the law for fear that insisting on the rule of law will be used to claim some political persecution of Bobi Wine?” he asked.

He noted, “Finally for bobi wine supporters and sympathizers: Chaka Chaka herself posted on her twitter page that she was not deported. Where did daily monitor, and many of you, get this idea?”

State House Disowns Kusasira, Buchaman: They Are Not Entitled To Salary…

Published

on

Appearing before the Presidential Affairs Committee, State house comptroller, Lucy Nakyobe has said that musicians Catherine Kusasira and Mark Bugembe alias Buchaman are not Presidential Advisors because the president has not yet put their appointment in writing.

Nakyobe and a team from the State house had appeared before the committee to Present the institution’s budget estimate.

The repport compiled by the State House team shows that there were no changes in the amount estimated for Presidential Advisors’ salaries even though the President had appointed a few more in 2019.

When the MPs on the committee tasked the comptroller on the salaries of presidential advisors, Nakyobe said, “It is for that reason that they are not entitled to salary as State House staff.”

Recently, the Ministry of Public Service made it clear that Kusasira and Buchaman were not civil servants yet and are not entitled to the salary.

“The appointments are based on one’s social standing, it can be on technical competence, but we have not seen Buchaman and Kusasira’s appointments,” David Karubanga the State Minister for Public service said.

Late last year, President Museveni announced the appointment of Catherine Kusasira and Buchaman as advisors.

Museveni Is The Most Honest Person On Earth, Those Fighting Him Are Selfishness, Chaotic And Violent – Big Eye Praises M7 After Getting Brand New Tundra Car….

Published

on

Musician Ibrahim Mayanja alias Big Eye has praised president Museveni as the most honest person he has ever seen on the face of the earth.

Big Eye said this after receiving a brand new yellow colored Tundra from president Museveni to be used in the campaigning process.

“Mr Museveni is the most honest person I have ever seen on this earth; he understands every person. In fact, I don’t regret supporting him. He has just gifted me with a brand-new car that is going to be used in the 2020 campaigns,” he said.

In A brief phone interview with the Grapevine, BigEye said that president Museveni is the only person who can understand Ugandans and other people, including people power activists who want to unseat him very selfishness, chaotic and violent.

“Other politicians are selfish; they are working for their families. People Power members are characterized with chaos and violence; they cannot rule our country.  We have to vote for the right person and that is President Museveni,” He emphasised.

Big Eye Is one of the local musicians that have been insulted, pelted with empty battles after expressing their support towards the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) ahead of the 2021 presidential elections.

Others include Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool, Catherine Kusasira, Jenifer Nakanguubi alias Full Figure among others. However, Big Eye bragged that he has earned much from the torture he recently experienced, saying Mr. Museveni has compensated him with a lot of things.

“I was tortured, they insulted me and pelted empty bottles at me thinking that I will stop (supporting Museveni) but instead I have gained a lot from it like a brand-new car. I have 30 herds of cattle and am living a good life,” he bragged.

He further urged other youth to leave other parties which have no future and join the ruling party (NRM). “What I can tell other youth across the country is they should do what Hassan Ndugga did, they should join NRM because president Museveni is there to serve them,” a proud Big Eye said.

Recently, Kadongo Kamu singer Hassan Ndugga, a former People Power activist crossed to the ruling NRM party and even participated in the Afrika Kwetu Trek.

Ndugga told the media that he crossed to NRM because he never wanted to die poor. “Those criticizing me have never given me even a single penny, including Bobi Wine apart from praising me. I don’t want to die poor, that is why I joined the ruling party,” Ndugga said.

You Asked For 2 Billion From M7 To Fight Bobi Wine – Bajjo Pins Mayinja: I Would Sue Bajjo If He Was Not Mad -Mayinja…

Published

L-R: Bajjo and Ronald Mayinja

Local musician cum politician Ronald Mayinja has blasted events organizer Andrew Mukasa Alias Bajjo for attacking him over his new pressure group ‘Peace For All, All For Peace’.

Yesterday, Bajjo told the media that Mayinja met president Museveni and made a deal with him worth 2 billion shillings to abandon People Power and launch a new pressure group with intentions of breaking up People Power and fighting Bobi Wine’s support.

Bajjo and a one Kaweesi Yasin accused Mayinja of getting shillings 600 million deposit (on the 2 billion) from Mr. Museveni something that Mayinja vehemently refuted.

“My movement not a political party but a movement that agitates for peace not votes. Bajjo is mentally unstable. If he wasn’t, I would sue him so that court compels him to bring that evidence,” Mayinja said.

Mayinja added that he has met the president three times and in public places.

“I have met President Museveni 3 times only, in Kyanamukaka when Hon. Edward Ssekandi was made Vice President & his people requested our band to perform on his event, in Kiboga when Nankabirwa invited me and finally Serena at Kusasira’s show! All the meetings were public and in camera, those who say I met him and got 600m should bring pictures besides those 3 meetings!” Mayinjja said.

He added that he cannot risk meeting the president in secret or in the absence of the press.

“I cannot meet president Museveni privately because I disagree with him,” he added.

On Wednesday Last week, Mayinja launched ‘Peace For All, All For Peace’ pressure group at Calendar Hotel in Makindye, a Kampala suburb.

During the launch, Mayinja said that his team will move across the country to popularize the movement through organizing legal concerts with permission from the Police.

“We are going to promote mutual respect for one another regardless of one’s political affiliations, religion or tribe because we are all Ugandans,” he said.

The Peace for All Movement comes nearly five months after Mayinja stirred up controversy in September last year by singing his ‘Bizeemu’ song at Catherine Kusasira’s tears of a woman concert where president Museveni was chief guest.
