President Museveni has said that he was not aware of the detention of slain Buyende District Police Commander (DPC) Muhammad Kirumira at Nalufenya.

In a meeting with president Museveni at Nakasero state lodge, the executive members of late Muhammad Kirumira‘s Nalufenya torture victims group were shocked after the president revealed that he never knew that Kirumira was at one time arrested  and detained at Nalufenya during general Kale Kayihura’s tenure as Inspector General of Police (IGP).

Led by Rt. Maj Godfrey Galabuzi  Musisi,  the group had met the president to hand in another report  on why the slain cop was at war with his superiors in the police force and why he might have been killed.

According to a source who also attended the meeting, Museveni said that until this meeting, he has not been aware that Kayihura sent Kirumira to Nalufenya police detention centre which is now Nalufenya police station.

“On receiving the report with the signature of the late Kirumira as the chairman, M7 asked Maj Galabuzi if indeed Kayihura had taken Kirumira to Nalufenya.

He even called Maj Gen. Proscovia Nalweyiso to cross check and Nalweyiso answered in the affirmative,” a source said.

The group that met the president in late hours also included BK Bukenya who was arrested by police and displayed by the then IGP Gen Kale Kayihura  as the man who was behind the rampant panga attacks and killings also known as ‘Bijambiya’ before he was later cleared by ISO and other security groups for being arrested in error.

During this meeting, it’s said the Commander in Chief also promised security to the Nalufenya team who felt that their lives were in danger.

We were also told that the president cleared those with military background to get armed if they so wished to boost their security.

Just like former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi, Kirumira was also assassinated a few meters from his home.

Residents of Buyinja village near Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home in Kasangati are in shock after a woman strangled herself on finding out that she was HIV positive.

Jennifer Tumuhereze (35) was found in her rented apartment in Buyinja village hanging by the rope. Neigbours told this website that Jennifer killed herself after she received terrifying news from the doctor that she was HIV positive.

“When Tumuhereze tested positive with HIV, she ran mad and was rushed to Butabika mental hospital. She later returned stable and started taking her medicine,” one of the locals told the Grapevine.

She was later heard asking neighbours from time to time that, “if someone wants to strangle themselves, what do they do?”

Ronald Namugowa (28), the husband to Jennifer said that, “I woke up in the morning and went for work, I left her in the house healthy and fine. Later in the evening when I came back with a pineapple and ‘kikomando’ (Chapati with beans) to surprise her, I was shocked to find her hanging on the rope next to the entrance of our ‘muzigo’.

Kasangati police was alerted and they removed the body from the rope and took it to Mulago for postmortem before taking it to Kabale for burial.

A mother has been convicted of abusing her 3-year-old daughter in Britain’s first successful prosecution for female genital mutilation.

The 37-year-old Ugandan woman was found guilty Friday at London’s Central Criminal Court. The mother isn’t being named to protect her child’s identity,

She claimed her daughter suffered an accidental injury, but jurors concluded the child had been cut deliberately.

Metropolitan Police Detective Chief Inspector Ian Baker said the girl “was subjected to horrific abuse” but made a good recovery.

However, the woman told court the baby “fell on metal and it ripped her private parts” while trying to get a biscuit in August 2017.

Judge Philippa Whipple said a lengthy prison term is in store at the woman’s March 8 sentencing.

Female genital mutilation – intentionally altering or injuring female genital organs for non-medical reasons – has been a crime in Britain since 1985, but this is the first prosecution to result in a conviction.
