    M7 Chief Campaigners Fight Over Bread – Balaam, Bebe Cool, And Ashburg Katto have Formed Rival Cliques Within The NRM…



    L-R: Ashburg Kato, Balaam Barugahara and Bebe Cool

    As the 2021 general elections draw closer, pressure is visibly mounting amongst the various parties, mostly for the presidential position.

    Within the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM), there’s a silent but very intense battle raging on.

    Museveni’s chief ground campaigners have initiated petty infighting over non clear issues, but highly attributed to uneven distribution of monetary resources, and craving for attention from the chief general himself.

    Singers, Bebe Cool, Big Eye and Catherine Kusasira have their own clique, these have taken to the upcountry regions to convince people on why they should vote Tibuhaburwa as the president. theGrapevine clearly understands that Bebe Cool’s camp was initially installed to counter National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine’s huge crowds, to prove that Museveni’s NRM can also attract huge crowds.

    However, due to public outcry after Bobi Wine’s arrest, the strategy was disbanded. They are now famously doing their boss’ job by moving house to house distributing yellow masks and T-shirts, as they ask the voters to vote for the incumbent president.

    Museveni’s social media warmonger, Ashburg Katto also seems to be commanding his own troop comprising of motormouthed Wisdom Kaye, talkative Kafeero Innocent alias Dr. T Amale, and blogger Isma Olaxess. Ashburg Katto has initiated a program where he has printed Yellow-shirts and inscribed messages of Peace and reconciliation. This group is clearly a strategy to counter Bobi Wine’s huge presence on social media. Ashburg however, has gone as far as provocatively stating that his Museveni T-shirts are more expensive than Bebe Cool’s. This clearly looks like a desperate move to prove more allegiance to their boss.

    There is also a camp for events promoter and self styled NRM fisherman, Balaam Barugahara who has taken upon himself the responsibility of recruiting new supporters into the party, alongside top executive officials like the Presidential Press Secretary, Don Wanyama and SG Kasule Lumumba among other top officials in the NRM party.

    It’s not clear to ascertain which side Full Figure falls. The motormouthed singer cum presidential advisor, real names Jennifer Nakanguubi is all over the place most of the times, attacking any and everyone there’s to attack. She has however gone quite silent since she was bounced by security from attending Museveni’s manifesto launch shortly after his nomination earlier on this month citing no invitation to the occassion.

    Unlike all the others, only Balaam has been so physically seen close to the president since the campaigns officially kicked off.

    In a related development, Don Wanyama and Balaam have also lately rebutted claims that the events promoter was together with Parliamentary backbench commissioner, who is also Bukooli Central MP Solomon Silwany thrown out of the State Lodge in Soroti by President Museveni’s Special Forces Command (SFC) guards earlier in the week.

    Mr. Barugahara, in a Facebook post described the reported events of him being barred from seeing the President as untrue, saying that he understood the procedure of meeting the No.1 citizen and cannot simply show up without clearance of the Principal Private Secretary.

    “Its not true at all. I spent my day in Kumi mobilising for President Museveni. I even attended the last meeting of our Party Chairman,” Mr. Barugahara wrote.

    The position was also confirmed by Presidential Press Secretary Don Wanyama, who said Mr. Barugahara was never bounced as earlier reported.

    “Claims that Balaam Barugahara Ateenyi was kicked out of Soroti State lodge are false. Treat them as such. The immunised mutabani is busy in Eastern Uganda combing every nook and crevice for votes for Mzee wa Kazi YK Museveni,” Don Wanyama tweeted.

    State lodges are used by the President as residential places whenever he visits the countryside and they are manned by SFC, an elite unit responsible for the security of the President of Uganda and other special operations.

    Both State House and Balaam have disputed the reports, after reports had earlier on indicated that MP Silwany was moving in his official Parliamentary car Reg No. UG 0344H along Balaam who is the Managing Director of Balaam Marketing and Promotions Agency in Uganda.

    30 Things You Didn’t Know About Archbishop Ntagali’s Adultery Scandal With Bummy Married Woman He Snatched From Junior Priest…



    Arch. Stanley Ntagali with his wife (L) right is the Side-dish Judith Tukamuhabwe

    The Church of Uganda was this week hit by a blistering sex scandal after Archbishop Dr. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu  suspended his predecessor Archbishop Emeritus Stanley Ntagali, for sinning by committing adultery with a married woman.

    Following the scandal, who cast the Church of Uganda and Archbishop Ntagali in bad light, Arch. Kazimba decided to suspend him from all church duties until further notice.

    Arch. Ntagali’s suspension letter from Arch. Kazimba reads in part thus; “It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my predecessor, retired Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, has been involved in an extra-marital affair with a married woman, which he has acknowledged. This adultery is a grievous betrayal on many levels.

    Retired Archbishop Ntagali has betrayed his Lord and Saviour, his wife and their marriage vows, as well as the faith of many Ugandans and global Christians who looked to him to live the faith he proclaimed.”

    However, it should be noted that although Ntagali is yet to issue an official statement about this sex scandal which has since gone viral on all media platforms, the Grapevine reveals that there are very many things that Ugandans out there don’t know about the adultery scandal, which we bring you today.

    For starters Ntagali is married to Beatrice Ntagali since 1978, and they are the parents of five children.

    He was born in 1955 in Kigezi District, is a graduate of St. Paul’s University, Limuru, Kenya, and holds Masters of Arts in Theology from Oxford Centre for Mission Studies, Oxford, United Kingdom.

    Ntagali was ordained in 1981 and consecrated bishop on

    December 19, 2004 by Henry Luke Orombi.

    It is alleged that he was unhappy in marriage and lacked a feel of some warm blood, reason why he reached out to Judith Tukamuhabwe, who welcomed him with open hands.

    Pals reveal that Judith is a very Waterlogged babe who enchanted Ntagali with her ever-flowing River between, which often over-flooded whenever she drank some Nile Special beer.

    Ntagali’s Side-dish Judith is not only very bummy but also overtly bootylicious, to the extent that she is so irresistible, even to an ordained, married man of God.

    We have since established that  although  it is claimed that she is married, Ntagali side-dish Judith actually separated from her husband, identified as Rev. Christopher Tugumehabwe popularly known as Rev. Chris, of the Church of Uganda.

    This means that Ntagali snatched Judith from a junior priest in the Church of Uganda (Rev. Chris.)

    But fresh details indicate that Judith filed for divorce at Kabale Grade One Magistrates Court through her lawyers of M/s New Mark Advocates, citing cruelty and desertion by her husband.

    Although the divorce hasn’t been granted by court yet, that didn’t stop her from dishing out her Sumbie to Arch. Ntagali.

    The Grapevine has also learnt that Judith is some sort of bedroom tigress because before she hooked up with Ntagali, she had been juggling both Rev. Chris and another man.

    Rev. Chris is a lecturer at Bishop Barham University College Kabale.

    Insiders reveal that Rev. Chris, who is a widower, hooked up but later decided to estrange himself from Judith after learning about her infidelity with another man.

    Judith and Tugumehabwe wed at Rugarama Cathedral in Kabale on December 15, 2018, according to papers filed in court, a few months after his wife had passed on.

    However, their wedding was shrouded in scandals after Judith was linked to another man, an employee of a beverage company in Uganda.

    She told court that as a result of being “assaulted on several occasions”, which matter she reported to police, she decided to stay alone in Mbarara City where she pays her house rent.

    However, information indicates that she fell out with Rev. Chris after he realized that she had conceived yet he was very sure he wasn’t the one who had ballooned her.

    It is also alleged that bills at the apartment she rents in Mbarara City are being catered for with support from Ntagali.

    On top of committing adultery, it is also alleged that the Archbishop emeritus Ntagali sired a child with Judith.

    But the court records do not indicate whether the accused husband filed a response or appeared in court in person or through an agent on December 15, 2020 as the Kabale Grade One Magistrate ordered.

    However, putting the adultery momentarily aside, sources within the Church of Uganda intimate that there is also a long-running feud between Archbishops Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu and his predecessor Ntagali.

    It is because of this feud that Kaziimba rushed to the media to expose Ntagali’s dirty linen in public, yet under normal circumstances he would have handled the matter quietly, like an elder, well-knowing that if it went public it would turn into a full-blown Church of Uganda sex scandal.

    As if to shed more light on the beef between the two church leaders, our insiders reveal that Arch. Kaziimba on Thursday held a secret meeting with the cuckolded husband Rev. Chris, although matters that were discussed between them remain a top secret to date.

    What has raised eyebrows however is why Kaziimba secretly med Rev. Chris and why he doesn’t want to make public what they both discussed, yet he was quick to publicly suspend Ntagali from performing all the duties of the Church of Uganda, well knowing that the matter is purely a private, domestic issue.

    It should be noted that by committing adultery, Archbishop Ntagali broke One of the Ten Commandments, because the Book of Exodus in 20:14 teaches that: You shall not commit adultery.

    According to Hebrews 13:4: “Marriage should be honoured by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral,”

    Ntagali and Judith’s adulterous acts have brought to light the fact that there is a lot of adultery happening among prelates of the Church of Uganda.

    For instance, in January 2020, Namirembe Diocese, the first Church of Uganda diocese founded in 1890, suspended Rev. Ronald Kalende of St Stephen’s Church Mwererwe in Gombe sub-county, Wakiso District, a week to his wedding after he admitted fathering a child with a church choir pianist.

    In December 2019, Archbishop Stephen Kaziimba revoked the consecration and enthronement of Rev. Charles Okunya Oode as the second Bishop of Kumi Diocese, following accusations that the latter had fathered a child in an extra-marital affair.

    In May 2018, Luweero Diocese was rocked by allegations of aggravated defilement by high-ranking priests of Church of Uganda and two other lay church leaders.

    NBS TV’s UnCut Kalakata gossip show presenter, Isaac Kawalya commonly known as Kayz, has carried himself with grief back to the Naguru based station to carry on with work after laying his mother to rest.

    Kayz was emotionally hit so hard by the death of his mother early this month, and the mortar-mouthed gossip reporter hadn’t been strong enough to do his duties since then. His bosses at the station understood his situation and granted him a leave. But the “Gossip King” is back again.

    Pallaso Emotional As He Consoles Big Brother Jose Chameleone Who Lost To Lukwago In Kampala Lord  Mayoral Race…



    Jose Chameleone and Pallaso (L) Right is Kampala Lord Mayor Elect Hajji Erias Lukwago

    Musician Pius Mayanja alias Pallaso is in a state of depression following his elder brother Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone’s loss in the Kampala Lord Mayoral elections.

    “Congratulations my brother. We have walked almost every step of this journey together. Thanks to everyone that believed in Joseph Mayanja. I still don’t understand how Uganda will attain change by divisions and disbelief in young leaders. We are stronger together,” Pallaso wrote on social media, to console his brother.

    To express his misery, Pallaso added; “I am also proud of myself as well, I have sang songs, I have risked my life and my career and much more but above all I have done my part. I wish our politics was different. I wish so many things. I wish we were more united that divided, I wish we lift each other more, in the next phase lets love each other more, lets push each other more, let’s be so united that no one can break the bond.”

    He quoted an old African proverb that says; “It’s easy to break one single stick standing alone and harder to break many sticks if combined standing together.”

    Jose Chameleone contested for the Kampala Mayoral Race as an independent candidate after he was denied  the National Unity Platform (NUP) ticket in favour of Latif Sebaggala, who later abandoned it for Nabilah Naggayi Sempala, although she lost to Hajji Erias Lukwago.


    The race had up to 12 candidates, and all the other 11 came behind the incumbent Lord Mayor Lukwago, who reclaimed his supreme seat at the city hall.

    Lukwago will now extend his reign over the capital city to his third term.

    Lukwago beat competition from eleven other contestants including; Jose Chameleone, former Kampala Woman MP Nabilah Naggayi (NUP), Daniel Kazibwe alias Ragga Dee of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM), among others.

    “What a historic moment! Praise be to the Almighty. Thank you Kampala! The Statement is unequivocally loud and clear; OMULOODI WAALI. Our love is etched in stone. Asante sana. Mungu awabarik,” Lukwago wrote on social media Wednesday night after winning.
