Let Him Pay For His Sins: NRM Speaks Out On Kitatta’s Arrest

Published

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) party has finally come out on the arrest of their own,  Abdallah Kittatta, the NRM party chairman Rubaga division.

Kitatta who is also the patron of Boda Boda 2010, was arrested on Saturday by CMI operatives, after getting information from his brother Kiwalabye Muzairu, that he was involved in the murder of Case Hospital accountant Francis Ekulangar.

NRM publicist Rogers Mulindwa noted that party members and especially the leadership are supposed to be law abiding citizens and anyone who breaks the law must be punished. “NRM allowed the arrest of their chairman while they are control of the government to show that as a party, we are law abiding citizens. We will let the law take its course,” Mulindwa noted.

He emphasised that as a secretariat, they are very worried about the way security has always been handled in the country. Rogers said he has always suspected that there are people within security agencies who have been working for the down fall of the NRM government.

He gave an example of when security agencies kept silent during Christmas festivals when suspected ‘Kifeesi’ gang members came out and informed the country that they were not going to steal anyone during the festival, and it happened just like they said.

According to Mulindwa, that meant that there are some people within security who are behind those criminals with an intention of showing that the NRM government is controlled by criminals which is not true. “However big you are in those security offices, you must understand that there is a higher office which oversees you, and which you must respect, be answerable to and follow,”Mulindwa warned.

He wondered how people were killed in areas of Masaka and Kampala metropolitan, how criminals bragged that they work with police while executing their criminal activity and the police just kept quiet. He called upon the security minister to take action before the collapse of their government, because many criminals are using NRM party to hoodwink Ugandans and commit crime.

However, Herold Kaijja, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) deputy Secretary General revealed that the arrest of Kittatta and his co-members of boda boda 2010 is a sign of multiple organ failure of the NRM government which needs to be changed early before more Ugandans are killed.

He noted that most of the security agencies are working for the survival for Museveni’s regime instead of working for the interests of Ugandans, to keep them and their property safe, as per the constitution. “That’s why CMI orders the release of known ‘kifeesi’ chief Sobi before even parading him in courts of law.”

Kaija said the arrest of Kitatta and the group is aimed at showing president Museveni that they are working and they need money for facilitation because police has the lion share of the security budget.

IS KYAGULANYI SAFE? People Power In Fear Bobi Wine Might Be Arrested In Tumukunde Treason Saga…

Published

on

People Power Movement top leadership is in fear after being tipped off by intelligence that their boss Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine might be arrested in embattled Lt. Gen Tumukunde’s treason saga.

Multiple credible sources from different security agencies which include Internal Security Organization (ISO), Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) and the Criminal Intelligence Department of the Uganda police (CID) have revealed that there were frequent talks between Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine the People Power boss and embattled former security minister Lt. Gen. Tumukunde before his arrest.

The Grapevine has been told that investigators have established from interrogating Tumukunde’s aides who were arrested recently that before his arrest, there was communication between their boss and Kyagulanyi.

Credible sources told this website that before president Museveni freed Tumukunde from the UPDF, he first planted spies close to him after getting information that he still had presidential ambitions.

Speaking exclusively to this website, one of Bobi Wine’s confidants who told us not to reveal his identity accepted that Bobi Wine met Tumukunde at his offices in Kamwokya and they talked.

“Yes it’s true Tumukunde talked to Bobi Wine. Bobi was actually the first person to know that Tumukunde was going to announce his readiness to challenge his former boss. What surprised all of us who were in the meeting is that Tumukunde wanted us to rally behind him. I remember Bobi Wine told him that he still has a big trust problem from the electorates and he has to first prove himself. They of course disagreed because Bobi told him that People Power cannot stand behind him,” Bobi Wine’s assistant said.

He further told us that Tumukunde was furious with Bobi Wine’s statements. Bobi however told him that they can meet later when he sorts out the issues they had discussed. Unfortunately, he was arrested before they met again.

Bobi’s assistant accepted that its true they fear that the regime might misinterpret the meeting and drag their boss into Tumukunde’s treason woes.

He also revealed that for precaution purposes, they have prepared a number of lawyers to defend him.

Efforts to speak to people power publicity Joel Senyonyi were futile since he was not picking his known numbers for a comment.

Malimbolimbo talking to Bobi Wine, inset is Bobi Wine with Nambi

People power’s strongman Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine’s Personal Assistant is in trouble for taking a bribe from National Resistance Movement (NRM) National Vice Chairperson Hajji Moses Kigongo’s daughter Hajjat Faridah Nambi to meet his boss.

A group of people power supporters and sympathizers including Kaweesa Kaweesa, a personal assistant to Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze ran to social media and asked the public to rescue the 2021 presidential aspirant from captivity of mafias who are surrounding him.

They dislosed that a number of Bobi Wine’s assistants are taking bribes from people especially those who want to meet him without scrutinizing their motives and agenda. They revealed that most of the people close to Bobi Wine want to use his face to win political offices in 2021 General elections.

Bobi Wine with Nambi

The group pined Nicholas Musoke Malimbolimbo, a political personal assistant to Bobi Wine who they accused of getting a Shs.2m bribe from Hajjat Nambi to see Bobi Wine.

They claim that Nambi has been trying to capture Bobi Wine’s attention so that he can help her achieve her 2021 political ambitions of becoming the Kampala District Woman Member of Parliament. They said that Nambi first plotted to ‘bribe’ singer Nubian Lee to take her to Bobi Wine but he refused until she was tipped on a safe passage which was Malimbolimbo.

The group asked Bobi Wine to check some of his assistants who are turning greedy and have been infiltrated by money minded people who will one day throw him straight into Museveni’s trap.

The group blasted Nambi that she is a friend to president Museveni, his son Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, Gen Salim Saleh and other first family members and that she is trying to lay a trap for Bobi.

Other sources in People Power told this Website that it was Malimbolimbo who allowed Bobi Wine to meet embattled General Henry Tumukunde. Joseph Tamale Mirundi, president Museveni’s senior media adviser was the first to disclose that Bobi Wine’s assistants are extorting money from the public to meet him. Mirundi said that such people are becoming a stumbling block to Bobi’s presidential bid.

MALIMBOLIMBO SPEAKS OUT

When the Grapevine contacted Malimbolimbo for a comment, he accepted that he took Nambi to see Bobi Wine because she has been trying for a long time to see him.

He asked People Power supporters to respect Bobi Wine’s assistants because he was very careful when appointing them.

“We built this brand Bobi Wine for a long time when those people who are now accusing us of extorting money are rubbishing him. I know a number of those politicians who asked money from Bobi Wine to support him when he was vying for Kyadondo East parliamentary seat. Now they are claiming that they love him so much, that woman Nambi was did a great job in building this brand Bobi Wine,” Malimbolimbo said.

He explained that People Power welcomes everybody regardless of their political background and tribe. He added that he always first consults his boss before taking any visitor to see him.

He said that their goal right now is for Bobi Wine to be president.

He denied getting money from people who seek to meet Bobi saying that if it was true, they would have fired him from his office already.

Lawyers Weigh In On Tumukunde Arrest, Detention And His Chances Of Winning Court Battle, CID Boss Akullo Warned…

Published

on

Makerere University law don has warned AIGP Grace Akullo, the director Criminal Investigations Department of the Uganda Police that she risks facing the International Criminal Courts of Justice (ICC) over illegal detention and violation of people’s human rights especially Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde.

Nsibambi said that Akullo and other top security operatives are acting with impunity in a bid to appease their bosses and show them that they are working hard to keep them in power.

He predicted that there is no way the state can win treason charges against former security minister Tumukunde .

“I wonder why people in security forces accept to be used, I know that Miss Akullo is a lawyer but the way she is handling Tumukunde’s issue is exposing her. How can you force someone to record a statement without his lawyers?” Nsibambi said.

He said that as a lawyer, Tumukunde tried to explain to Akullo that the constitution does not allow her to search his home without a search warrant from courts of law but she turned a deaf ear.

However, some sources in the intelligence confirmed to

this website that Akullo was waving a search warrant which the police obtained from Buganda road court .

Nsibambi added that Tumukunde being a lawyer asked Akullo to wait for his lawyers to come and witness the search because he feared that some state operatives may plant deadly exhibits in his office and house but Akullo arrogantly refused because she was working under instructions from top officers in government to humiliate Tumukunde.

“You know I have been humiliated by those young security officers especially in Uganda police. One time one of them abused me that I am an idiot. But what I tell them is very simple, you know ICC simplified things when it ruled that whoever violates people’s  rights will face them as an individual without considering his commanders. So whatever Akullo is doing let her know that she will answer for it in future before ICC,” Nsibambi said.

He revealed that as a lawyer, he knows that Tumukunde is going to deny every exhibit that the state found at his office and home because the search was done in absence of his lawyers.

He noted that he is very sure that court will dismiss the matter and Tumukunde will run to the civil court and ask for billions from government.

He said that the government will use tax payer’s money to compensate Tumukunde. Another celebrated criminal lawyer Sam Muyizi revealed that the state cannot defeat Tumukunde because the government is now using treason offence in political matters.

First, Muyizi said that the security personnel tampered with the scene of crime and the entire exhibits. He added that the way the state handle Tumukunde’s treason case is the same way it handled Jamil Mukulu’s case and Omusinga Mumbere, the king of Rwezururu kingdom.

Lt. Gen. Tumukunde is still in detention on charges of treason and his legal team led by Alex Luganda is expecting him in court next week. They were appearing before ‘palamenti yaffe’ programme show on CBS radio.
