Joining Bobi Wine’s NUP Is Like Flogging A Dead Horse And Then Trying To Sit On It For Transport – Stella Nyanzi Vows To Stick With FDC Symbol…

Dr. Stella Nyanzi

Makerere University research fellow Stella Nyanzi has revealed that she will not seek endorsement from Robert Kyagulanyi’s new party National Unity Party (NUP) even though she still subscribes to People Power.

“I never submitted my forms to NUP. I am not seeking the endorsement of NUP because I do not belong to NUP. But I took my forms to People Power where I belong,” Nyanzi said on Facebook.

Nyanzi said that even though she belongs to FDC and People Power, she will use FDC symbol because that’s her party, not NUP.

She emphasized that she rightfully belongs to FDC, and in People Power, not NRM, DP, UPC, GF, Jeema, PPP, CP and NUP.

“I’m a Christian woman married to a Muslim man and with ancestors who were African animists. I congregate in all those congregations. I am working hard to oust dictator Museveni using nonviolent methods. And I am secure in my spaces of political affiliation,” she said.

Nyanzi said she cannot join a party which has been irrelevantly been in existence for around one and a half decades.

She compared seeking NUDP endorsement to flogging a dead horse and then trying to sit on it for transport arguing that the party has been dormant and insignificant for many years.

Nyanzi wants to stand for Kampala woman Member of Parliament in 2021.

Drama As Divorced Wife To Traffic Police Boss Musinga Storms Church To Stop His Wedding To Wife No. 2…

Musinga with his new wife Ankunda

On Saturday, there was drama at All Saints’ Cathedral, Kampala when the divorced wife to the commander of Kampala Metropolitan traffic police SSP Norman Musinga stormed church to stop his wedding to wife number two.

It was about 8am when Esther Kyinkuhaire, wife number one to Musinga, accompanied by her sisters, drove their posh land cruiser vehicles to church and straight away moved to Bishop James Abola’s office to stop Musinga’s wedding.

“They entered into Bishop’s office claiming that they had a letter from their lawyers of Ojok and Company Advocates caveating Musinga from getting wedded or receiving wedding blessings from church claiming that he is still legally married to Kyinkuhaire,” one of the eye witness told theGrapevine.

The ladies were welcomed in the Bishop’s office and immediately Musinga was called in the office since he was already at the church.

Sources who attended the meeting revealed that when Musinga entered the office, he started exchanging words with Kyinkuhaire, they each abused each other for over ten minutes in front of the man of God and other top religious leaders who were invited by Musinga.

In his defense, Musinga told the Bishop that his marriage to Kyinkuhaire was dissolved in 2019 and she didn’t appeal against the decision of the magistrate’s Court.

He gave the Bishop a letter from his lawyers of Kampala Associated Advocates (KAA) and accused Kyinkuhaire of wasting his time.

Musinga insisted that the reason why he went to church was to receive blessings from church not to be weeded because he was already officially wedded by the registrar of marriages, to his new wife Ankunda.

Sources who attended the meeting told us that when Musinga mentioned Akunda’s name during the meeting, Kyinkuhaire shouted out on top of her voice which forced Musinga to call security from Central Kampala Station (CPS) to restore peace.

When police arrived, Kyinkuhaire was immediately arrested together with her sisters and taken to CPS where they were detained for hours until prayers were done.

They were rescued by their lawyers led by Rtd. Major Ronald Iduli and suspects were not charged.

Upon her release Kyinkuhaire claimed that while having an argument with Musinga in the Bishop’s office, he seriously kicked her in a dangourous spot, she threatened to institute charges against him.

Musinga divorced Kyinkuhaire after accusing her of practicing witchcraft.

Maggie Kayima, the former girlfriend to fallen Kawala Revival Church senior pastor late Augustine Yiga commonly known as Abizaayo and her sister Bennah Namisinga have been grilled over Shs.5bn scum.

The two sisters were grilled by detectives attached to State House Anti Corruption Unit commanded by Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema on their involvement in the Shs.5bn scum where top government officials, State House staff, city pastors and singers were implicated.

According to Mariam Natasha, the spokesperson of State House Anti Corruption Unity, the two sisters were arrested in the same vehicle at Mutukula Uganda-Tanzania border with controversial Bombo Revival Church senior pastor Siraje Ssemanda who is the main suspect in the scum, trying to escape out of the country.

Natasha revealed that after over five hours of grilling, the suspects were released on bond.

She further disclosed that their detectives have issued fresh criminal summons against celebrated singer Catherine Kusasira who skipped her bond.

“She did not give us reasons for nonappearance but our investigators have issued fresh criminal summons against her,” Natasha said.

In the same development, Lt. Col. Nakalema rubbished claims that city pastor Flankline Mugisha Mondo, one of the suspects in the scum, is being witch haunted because he prayed for National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine at the burial of pastor Yiga.

Lt. Col. Nakalema said that no suspect is being witch hunted, her team is investigating fraud with instructions from president Museveni.

Detectives told this website that Mondo is expected to appear before them today for further interrogation over his involvement in the fraud.

Others under investigation include president Museveni’s senior advisor Hillary Musoke commonly known as Kisanja.

They were accused of fraudulently obtaining Shs.5bn from different religious leaders promising them jobs, scholarships and travels to Israel and South Africa respectively.

M7 Has No Moral Authority To Criticize Others Concerning Tribalism, He Practises It But Attacks Us Who Merely Talk About It – Bobi Wine…

NUP presidential candidate Bobi Wine (L) and NRM's Tibuhaburwa Museveni (R)

The National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has mocked President Yoweri Museveni of stooping too low to employ hate Politics as his main strategy to justifiably keep himself in power after 35 years of rule.

Kyagulanyi, a staunch muganda who married Barbie Itungo from Western Uganda argued that if there is anyone promoting tribalism in Uganda, then that is President Museveni who practices it, and not him who merely talks about it.

The youthful leader holding the NUP flag to the 2021 presidential elections disclosed that as he has been traversing the country to seek for support, he realised that all the DPC’s are coming from the same area. He argued that that is exactly what makes Museveni’s regime really look ugly. “Museveni has lost all the moral authority to talk about tribalism,” Kyagulanyi said.

Kyagulanyi further explained that NUP and himself condemn all sorts of tribalism and those who practice it. “That’s why we are called the National Unity Platform, because we believe in National Unity,” Kyagulanyi added.

He also asserted that Museveni is too scared of him that he has now resorted to spreading homophobia as a campaign strategy, because he cannot explain his thirty five years of administering Uganda.

The NUP presidential hopeful also reiterated that all his campaigns are funded by Ugandans in Uganda and abroad, who he thanked for supporting their party activities since they started their campaigns till date.

“Museveni can not make any point. He cannot explain his 35 failed years of administering Uganda but what he does is tell lies,” Kyagulanyi said.

“All he will say is that we are being funded by homosexuals and foreigners. When we demand for our freedom and justice they call us tribalists,” he added.

Kyagulanyi also accused the president of trying so hard to portray NUP as a violent group so that he can justify his violence towards them.

Kyagulanyi will today extended his gospel of the new Uganda to the areas of Lugazi and Mukono.
