    M7 Employs Two Diplomatic Experts To  Groom Gen. Muhoozi On Fulfilling Presidential Ambitions…

    Published

    on

    Veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda’s job of guiding Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba to the highest office in the land through properly handling international relations and diplomacy has been eased.

    Gen. Muhoozi, the Senior Presidential Advisor on Special Operations always travels with Mwenda when he goes for international engagements.

    Highly placed sources in the MK Movement, a political pressure group which is mobilizing political support for Gen. Muhoozi to win people’s hearts and be elected the next president of Uganda after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni revealed that when Gen. Muhoozi made threatening statements against Kenya, where he said that his army can capture Nairobi within a week, he had to send Mwenda to talk to President William Ruto over the matter.

    Sources claim that Mwenda convinced Dr. Ruto to let the statements go and this happened after President Museveni’s apology to Kenyans and President Ruto over Gen. Muhoozi’s statements.

    The ‘Stand-by Generator’ as his supporters call him also made controversial statements against countries like Italy, America, Ukraine, and Democratic Republic of Congo and praised countries like Russia, Rwanda, South Africa.

    Sources disclosed that for years Museveni has been grooming his son for presidency but he recently realized that he needed more guidance on issues of diplomacy which is very crucial in handling State power and that’s why he decided to employ two diplomatic experts to groom and guide him.

    The latest in the MK Movement is that the big man from Rwakitura has directed the foreign experts to train Muhoozi on how a president conducts himself.

    The two experts include a woman from Britain and a man with African blood from America. Sources intimated to this website that the experts have already commenced their training sessions both physically and virtually.

    The source added that the intensiveness of the training explains why Muhoozi is very rare these days in the public eye and on social media platforms.

    Another source which followed the development since the experts arrived last month says that Muhoozi spends most of his time now with the experts.

    That the experts are guiding him on all the etiquettes expected of a modern president. The areas of the course include public speaking, interaction with members of the public, conducting meetings with diplomats, dressing and walking.

    However, when contacted for a comment on the development, Frank Gashumba, the MK Movement national vice chairperson in charge of Buganda noted that he was not aware of the said development.

    Efforts to talk to Mwenda the MK Movement chief spokesperson were futile after he failed to pick our calls.

    MK Movement leadership led by their national vice chairperson in charge of Buganda Balaam Bagaruhare, are already opening up branches around the country.

    The branches are meant to mobilise support for him so that when the right time comes, and his father okays his bid, he is ready for the job.

    MK Movement Buganda region spokesperson who is also the Senior presidential advisor in charge of media, Joseph Tamale Mirundi declared that Muhoozi project for presidency is unstoppable and warned those against the movement.

    MASTERS OF CHAOS! Minister Mao Warns Bobi Wine To Prepare For The Worst From Mpuuga, DP Block Politicians…

    NUP boss Bobi Wine. Inset L is DP's Norbert Mao and R inset is Matthias Mpuuga

    Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister who also doubles as the Democratic Party President General Norbert Mao has warned National Unity Platform (NUP) President Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) to prepare for the worst from Mathias Mpuuga Nsamba and members of the DP Block.

    Exclusively speaking to theGrapevine, Mao explain that when he saw Mpuuga and his friends who were formally members of Suubi, a political pressure group and DP party crossing to NUP, he envisioned what is happening right now.

    He added that the said people were a problem to DP and when they joined NUP, the DP problem crossed to Bobi Wine.

    Bobi Wine is under attack from members of his party who crossed from DP to NUP. They have even threatened to reveal their next political action next month at Mpuuga’s thanks giving ceremony where Charles Peter Mayiga the Buganda Kingdom premier is expected as the Chief Guest.

    Highly placed sources revealed that Mpuuga and his group are planning to reveal a new political pressure group which will tour the entire country getting views from their supporters concerning their next course of action after disagreeing with Bobi Wine’s leadership.

    George Musisi, one of lawyers for NUP accused Mpuuga’s blue eyed boy Samuel Lubega Mukaku of supporting the NUP faction led by Moses Kibalama.

    Sources allege that Mpuuga’s faction are confident that Court is going to declare Bobi Wine’s leadership at NUP illegal and the party will return into the hands of Kibalama a move they think will give them the opportunity to use NUP as a vehicle in the 2026 general elections.

    Other sources claim that Mpuuga and group are planning to use Buganda Kingdom leadership structures from the village level to mobilize support in Buganda come 2026.

    Mpuuga is confident that it was Buganda structures that helped Bobi Wine to defeat President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his NRM party in Buganda and without them, Bobi will lose.

    However, Nakaseke South legislator Paulson Lutamaguzi Ssemakula rubbished Mpuuga’s political calculations explaining that Bobi Wine will remain strong whether Buganda’s Mayiga supports him or not.

    He asserts that Bwanika and Mpuuga are working for President Museveni and he has always deployed them whenever election period approaches and help him to divide and disorganize the opposition.

    Ssemakula said that in 2021, when Bobi Wine was planning to work with Dr. Kizza Besigye, Bwanika abused Dr. Besigye and accussed him of working for Museveni to distract Baganda.

    He added that in 2006, Bwanika swore an affidavit in support of Museveni against Dr. Besigye before the Supreme Court and his evidence saved Museveni and stamped his win.

    However, Bwanika also accuses Bobi Wine of working for Museveni to stop the opposition from taking state power.

    The Bobi Wine/Mpuuga misunderstanding deepened when Bobi Wine ordered him to apologise to the nation and return the Shs500m bribe he admittedly received from the parliamentary Commission as a reward for being a good Leader of Opposition in parliament. Mpuuga was also told to resign from the office of the Commissioner of parliament which he declined to do.

    Bobi Wine also suspended Mpuuga from the office the national vice president in charge of Buganda region on top of sending him to the party disciplinary committee.

    Panic Among Ministers, M7 Set To Hold Cabinet Sittings At His Kisozi Farm With Tough Conditions…

    Published

    on

    Ministers have started panicking upon learning that very soon, their boss President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is set to hold cabinet meetings from his Kisozi country home.

    Highly placed State House sources revealed that Museveni wants to test the knowledge of his ministers when it comes to issues of fighting poverty among Ugandans through government programs.

    “The president is tired of hearing his ministers telling people to participate in government programs like Parish Development Modal, Emyooga, the four acre farming modal and others. He now wants to know and challenge them on which other initiatives they have put in place to fight poverty among the communities surrounding them,” a source said.

    The source added that ministers are going to be given enough time to make submissions concerning their own initiatives with evidence showing how the public has benefited from them.

    He added that the president is also going to invite experts on development and those producing farming products with value addition to lecture ministers on how their communities can benefit from them.

    Museveni recently boasted of how he fought poverty among his neighbours in Kisozi.

    The President disclosed that as a way of appreciating his efforts, his neighbors have started giving him money and other products to thank him for the advice he gave them and they are no longer begging him by blocking him to ask for money when he is driving to his farm.

    “In the 2026 presidential campaign, the President doesn’t want Museveni Abeewo, he wants his campaign team to stick to developmental issues which help Ugandans to fight poverty,” a source said.

    The cabinet meetings at Kisozi are also expected to be attended by NRM officials from the party Secretariat, those from the Offices of the National Chairperson in Kyambogo and other top government officials.
