    I’m Going To Celebrate My Rank Down On Kampala Road – Muhoozi Vows After His Father Promotes Him To Rank Of General…

    Published

    on

    The First Son Muhoozi Kainerugaba welcomed the rank of General given to him by his father President Yoweri Museveni.

    “I thank Ugandans for loving me. I will wear this rank, we celebrate and work continues!” Muhoozi tweeted.

    “We are going to have a celebration down Kampala Road for this rank. I thank my father for this great honor!” he added

    President Museveni, who is Commander in Chief of the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF), also dropped Muhoozi as Land Forces commander.

    In a statement released today by UPDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Felix Kulayigye, Muhoozi will continue with his duties as Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations

    The statement reads, “H.E the President and Commander in Chief of the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces has promoted and appointed General Officers as follows: Lieutenant General Muhoozi Kainerugaba promoted to General and continues with duties as Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations.

    “Major General Muhanga Kayanja promoted to Lieutenant General and appointed Commander Land Forces. The Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs and UPDF fraternity congratulate the General Officers upon their well-deserved promotions and appointments.”

    Muhoozi’s promotion and demotion follows uncontrolled tweets from him with one stating that his army would capture Kenya within two weeks.

    “It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, two weeks to capture Nairobi.”

    “I’m happy that members of our district in Kenya, have responded enthusiastically to my tweet. It’s still two weeks to Nairobi,” he sarcastically said.

    Muhoozi further provoked tweeps that they (Kenya and Uganda) are going to be one country. Any war against them will end quickly.

    “The borders that were established by the colonisers mean nothing to us, revolutionaries. Nairobi.”

    His tweets forced the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to clear the air on how they conduct the country’s foreign policy.

    According to a statement dated October, 4th, 2022, Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted that the debate on social media in respect to the relationship between Uganda and the brotherly neighbour, the Republic of Kenya, (initiated by Muhoozi), should not be taken seriously.

    “The Ministry wishes to emphasize that the Government and the people of the Republic of Uganda treasure the existing strong bilateral relations between the people and the Government of the Republic of Kenya based on our shared history, common values, mutual respect, trust and the desire to build a unified East African Community,” the statement read.

    “To this end, the Government of the Republic of Uganda wishes to reiterate its commitment to good neighbourliness, peaceful co-existence and cooperation.”

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs further clarified that the Government of the Republic of Uganda does not depend on social media sources in dealing with other sovereign Governments.

    “The Government of the Republic of Uganda, therefore, wishes to reiterate its cordial relationship with the Republic of Kenya and assure the people and the Government of the Republic of Kenya of our harmonious relationship that we value.”

    Minister for Security, Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi has distanced himself from the matter noting that he doesn’t want to talk about media reports because it is not authentic and not worth the energy to talk about it.

    “Someone asked about media reports (Gen Muhoozi’s tweets) and I don’t even remember what it was about but I don’t want to talk about media reports. It is not authentic and not worth the energy to talk about it. I have no comment about that.”

    Mwenda Narrates How Intelligence Advised M7 To Fire Kagame Girl Who Prepares His Bedroom….

    Published

    on

    Veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda (L) and President Museveni (R)

    Celebrated veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda has narrated how intelligence advised President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to fire president Paul Kagame’s girl to save his life.

    Mwenda revealed that when the misunderstanding between Rwanda and Uganda was at its peak, with each nation accusing the other of espionage, intelligence operatives advised President Museveni to fire all his assistants of Rwandan descent.

    Mwenda said that among the people that intelligence wanted to be removed from the state house was the beautiful Munyarwanda woman who has been in charge of President Museveni’s bedroom for a long time.

    He added that after reading a strongly worded intelligence report, Museveni took his time to interrogate the dossier and he took a strong decision which hurt his intelligence team by refusing to fire his assistants.

    While moderating ‘The hot seat’ talk show on KFM radio on Friday, Mwenda explained that Museveni trusts Rwandese more than Ugandans that’s why all the people surrounding him are Banyarwanda.

    It is on this note that Mwenda wondered why the President does not come out to rescue Rwandans from the ongoing harassment from country’s immigration department.

    He revealed that he has investigated and established that these people are facing a lot of hardships to get passports and National identity cards.

    He said that many of the people who have Rwanda like name are stateless because Uganda refused to give them passports and National Identity cards yet they cannot go to Rwanda because they were born in Uganda and all are parents have lived, died and have been buried in Uganda.

    Mwenda gave an example of Ritah Kanya, a news anchor with NTV Uganda and wife to senior investigative journalist Raymond Mujuni who is currently stateless because both her National Identity card and passports were canceled at the Immigration over her Rwandan roots.

    He insisted that Kanya was born in Uganda in Kisoro district and his grandfather was a sub county chief, so it is wrong to declare her stateless.

    He pleaded with President Museveni to intervene in the matter because National Unity Platform(NUP) supporters are also threatening Banyarwanda that when they take power, they will be sent back to their country.

    Land forces commander and also first son, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba led the Uganda-Rwanda negotiations which resulted in the reopening of the Katuna border which was closed by president Kagame in 2017 on allegations of mistreating Rwandese in Uganda.

    Lt. Gen. Muhoozi revealed through twitter that very soon, he is going to travel to Rwanda to meet his loving uncle.

    Efforts to reach Simon Peter Mundeyi, the immigration spokesperson, were fruitless because his known phone numbers were not going through.

    Chief Justice Dollo Is Sleeping On Job, He Has Failed To Bring Errant Judicial Officers To Order – Minister Mayanja; Top Herbalist Runs Into Hiding Fearing Arrest…

    Chief Justice Owiny Dollo (R) and Minister Sam Mayanja (L)

    State Minister for Lands Dr. Sam Mayanja has threatened to report Pius Bigirimana, the Judiciary Permanent Secretary to President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni over allegation of abuse of office.

    Mayanja insists that it is high time President Museveni takes action against Chief Justice Owiny Dollo who has slept on the job which has resulted into the Judiciary, a very important organ of the state, becoming a place where deals are cut.

    He explained that judicial officers no longer follow the Constitution because right now, everyone does what he wants because they know that Chief Justice, who is their head is not active and he cannot bring them to order.

    Mayanja wondered how a Chief Justice can keep quiet when low standard staff in Judiciary are humiliating senior judicial officers who would advise and guide the judiciary.

    He gave an example of Bigirimana who issued a statement against Supreme Court Justice Dr. Esther Kisakye Mayambala.

    Mayanja said that he was shocked to read in the papers that Bigirimana directed Justice Kisakye, the most senior Justice of the Supreme Court to return all the money which was paid to her for the nine months when she was absent.

    “All of us senior lawyers were shocked to see that man Bigirimana’s letter to a senior Judge like Kisakye. How can a mere Permanent Secretary to the judiciary humiliate a senior judge and you keep quite as a Chief Justice? He would have issued a strong statement condemning that man Bigirimana and even petitioning the president to take disciplinary action against him,” Mayanja insisted.

    However, Bigirimana recently said that he pulled out of Justice Kisakye’s scandal and referred the matter to Chief Justice Dollo because he is her supervisor not him.

    He added that as a senior lawyer, he cannot keep quiet when the judiciary is rotting.

    He cited a situation where Judges are imprisoning innocent Ugandans to show superiority.

    He gave an example of High Court Judge Musa Ssekaana who sentenced controversial city lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi to 18 months in prison on fabricated contempt of Court charges.

    He wondered if a judicial officer can give justice when they are the complainant, the investigator, the witness and the judge.

    Mayanja revealed that judicial officials connive to punish those who annoy them, and this is exactly what they did to Mabirizi, denied him bail and dismissed all his Appeals.

    He noted that such impunity has been used by Masaka judicial officers against Bibanja holders which has resulted in frequent land evictions.

    He explained that such corrupt judicial officers are the ones who helped land grabbers like renowned herbalist David Senfuka who based on forged documents to threaten evicting bonafide bibanja owners.

    He revealed that residents of Budda Village, Kijonjo parish Kibinge Sub County in Bukomansombi district brought to him evidence which he verified and established that Senfuka forged documents to acquire over 2 square miles of land.

    “He is a wanted man; he has to go to police and record a statement over criminal charges. His friends were telling me that I am interfering with a Court matter and as a lawyer I advised them that there is a difference between a criminal matter and a civil matter,” Mayanja said.

    He added that the same Masaka Judicial officers are the ones helping Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi’s Buganda Land Board to grab and evict people’s bibanja in greater Masaka.

    He gave an example of the piece of Kibanja on which the State Minister for Health Anifah Kawooya was supposed to build a nursing school.

    He disclosed that the minister was stopped by BLB who accused her of trespassing on Kabaka Mutebi’s land.

    However, Siraje Lubwama, the press secretary to Senfuka revealed that minister Mayanja is spreading falsehoods.

    He added that they are preparing to institute criminal and civil charges against him accusing him of defamation.

    Lubwama maintained that Senfuka was shocked when Mayanja and his boss Judith Nabakooba and declared him a fraudster.

    Minister Mayanja recently told the Grapevine that President Museveni has received a detailed intelligence report profiling the corrupt judicial officials and how they receive bribes.
