Kayunga Vet Officer Wants Untouchable NRM Boss Karangwa Jailed For Spreading Cow Disease…

Moses Karangwa

Kayunga District Veterinary Officer (DVO) Dr. Ronald Kanakulya has accused area NRM chairman Moses Karangwa of being more dangerous than the Coronavirus itself because of intentionally moving cattle from one place to another and in the process potentially facilitating the spread of the foot & mouth disease.

In a three page dossier dated September 8th 2020 to the police bosses, Dr. Kanakulya asked the Kayunga DPC to ensure that enough policemen are deployed to stop Karangwa from violating the cattle movement quarantine restrictions that were put in place by the Minister of Agriculture demanding that no cattle should move from one place to another within Kayunga district.

Karangwa is one of the powerful NRM officials in Kayunga and is known to own a lot of cattle and land. The DVO says that under the protection of security guards from Star React Security Company, Karangwa’s cows have freely been moving from Kinnamawanga village in Kasokwe parish to other villages and in the process increasing the risk of the spread of F&M disease.

The DVO says that the LC bosses who are supposed to enforce the quarantine rules fear stopping Karangwa’s herdsmen because they think his armed security guards will beat them up or even shoot them dead.

The DVO says the cows belong to Karangwa because they each have the label INL which the area LC leaders say is a serial number used to identify Karangwa’s cattle in Kayunga.

The quarantine has been in force since 28th September 2019.

Dr. Kanakulya travelled to Bbale to investigate this risk after three orphans Mustapha Kiggwe, Yusuf Kiwala and Jennifer Nsubuga who have been fighting Karangwa in court over 540 acres of land in Misanga village filed a case at Kayunga police accusing the NRM tycoon of illegal cattle movement.

The case was filed as SD11/06/09/20. When summoned at police, Karangwa denied responsibility of any wrongdoing and said he had sold the cows to Richard Mushabe, a man considered too broke to buy anything from such a tycoon.

The DVO requests the RDC Kayunga to beef up the DPC to ensure Karangwa’s illegal cattle movement is blocked and stopped because there is high risk of increasing the spread of F&M disease in the area.

He adds that the same cattle movement is also illegal as it’s against the recent court ruling by Justice Margaret Mutonyi from the Mukono High Court where she stated that the land (block 38 plot 2) belongs to the three orphans meaning Karangwa has no right to take his cows there.

The three orphans have decided to report Karangwa back to court and they want him jailed for contempt of court. The land originally belonged to their father Yonadabu Bidandi Nsubuga who died in 1995 leaving two square miles of land and thousands of cattle.

Bidandi left his property in the hands of heir and oldest son Christopher Kikku Nsubuga who the three orphans say they lost trust in after he started working with Karangwa to sell off part of their father’s land to the Madhvani group for sugarcane growing.

The Madhvani group has since become the owner of 900 acres of land from this family after they bought it from Karangwa who at first rented the same from Kikku.

That matter is already in court of appeal where the three orphans want Karangwa’s Madhvani Group to be forced out because the land is theirs and not for Kikku who they say cannot be trusted anymore because he is compromised by Karangwa to betray them through using fake letters of administration and fake land titles.

The three orphans recently wrote to the Principal Judge and complained against Mukono Registrar Ssali Nalukwago who was eventually transferred to Supreme Court. They accused her of being biased in favor of Karangwa, Kikku and other tormentors who are eyeing their father’s land.

Buchaman and some of the military wear he handed over to police

Musician Mark Bugembe alias Buchaman has submitted a number of military attire that he has been possessing illegally.

The Self-proclaimed presidential advisor on ghetto affairs handed over the attire to the Kampala South Police Commander, James Ruhweza in Makindye, a Kampala suburb today in the company of his wife, kids and other ghetto members.

“I have been on a mission to collect all military attires from my ghetto people. I want to send my voice and appeal to all ghetto members throughout the country that we have only one army, called the UPDF,” Buchaman said.

Buchaman also issued a 14-day ultimatum to anyone with military and any security attires to follow the directive to hand over all the military attires or face the wrath of the law.

“Take all military attires you have any nearby police station. Even those calling themselves ghetto presidents, you need to heed to this directive,” he warned.

The Kampala Metropolitan South Police commander, James Ruhweza applauded Buchaman and his ghetto group for leading by example.

Recently, police spokesperson Fred Enanga warned that security forces will continue with operations on illegal use of armed forces uniforms.

He cautioned that the operations will be targeting illegal manufacture, supply and distribution and selling of the armed uniforms across the country including berets, pips, ranger boots and heavy jackets.

Last week, a combined team of security forces raided National Unity Platform offices in Kamwokya and other parts of the city where several people were arrested and other military attires confiscated.

Shortly after the raid on NUP offices, army spokesperson Brig. Flavia Byekwaso said that a joint operation is ongoing to recover military and police stores and other military/police patented designs from the public.
