M7 Hides Behind Different Faces To Attack Naive And Unsuspecting Ugandans – Gashumba….

Published

on

Businessman and Sisimuka Uganda boss, Frank M Gashumba has asserted that peace loving Ugandans have no genuine reason to celebrate about the notable changes sacking going on in powerful positions.

The motor-mouthed political commentator says that  as long as Museveni is still the President, he is the man in full charge, and a mere shift in command doesn’t necessarily guarantee that the situation will improve under the same chief commander.

He argued that Ugandans are simply naive and absent minded, if not so forgetful to fail to account for events like those surrounding them.

Gashumba, who is famed for coming up with controversial political opinions quickly recurred to about a month ago, when Ugandans on various social media platforms, TVs verbally ran riot on CDF Gen. David Muhoozi, accusing him of involving himself in partisan politics, after it was allegedly stated that he had secretly met with Mr. Kibalama of NUP in an attempt to manipulate his stand on the NUP party ownership.

Gashumba opined that all the atrocities committed by chief security agancies are masterminded by President Museveni himself, who only assigns his messengers to finish off the job for him.

“What you need to know, however, is that there is a 90.9% chance that the CDF met Mr. Kibalama on orders of the Commander in Chief, Gen of the National Resistant Army (NRA) and our current president, Yoweri Kaguta Tibahaburwa Museveni Ssabalwanyi,” Gashumba stressed.

Gashumba cited, Gen. Kale Kayihura, Col. Frank Kaka Bagyenda, Gen. David Tinyefuza, Kakooza Mutale, CDF, Gen. David Muhoozi and labelled all of them president Museveni’s Messengers, insinuating that Ugandans should therefore be on the look out for any other messengers of the same being. “Is there any messenger you know?” he asked.

Gashumba ascertains that everything that Kayihura did as the IGP was simply to protect his master Gen. Museveni.

“It’s on record that Gen Museveni praised the then IGP Gen Kale Kayihura as the best cadre NRM has ever produced simply implying that he was implementing the NRM work plan,” he stated.

He recited that the torture chambers like Nalufenya where civilians were overwhelmingly tortured from was done  under Kayihura’s watch and supervision. Gashumba asked if Kayihura’s being sacked as the IGP has stopped the atrocities against the opposition and the civilians. He said that crimes have not reduced significantly, but are rather on the rise.

“What you need to understand is that the people committing these crimes are not the problem but rather the appointing authority under whom they operate. Instead of focusing on the instigators of these atrocities, we need to recognize the elephant in the room and know that for as long as it’s still seated in our midst, not much is going to change,” suggested Gashumba.

Gashumba submitted that Gen. Museveni for a specific mission and given period of time deploys someone who will execute his mission and later dumps them by having them sacked.

He further put forward that when Museveni appoints such people in various positions, he ably provides them with all the money and power and the pomp to match the status.

Hopping to the most related incident, Gashumba quickly pointed at Col. Frank Kaka Bagyenda who was sacked by Museveni after serving for about two years as the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) chief.

“I see these wannabe lawyers in the city claiming that Colonel Kaka Bagyenda is personally liable for the alleged torture of Ugandans in various safe houses in the country. To you jobless lawyers, safe houses have existed in Uganda since 1986 and even after Kaka’s exit, they will continue to exist until we solve the problem of the appointing authority,” Gashumba stated, ascertaining that safe houses cannot exist in a country without the prior knowledge of the President.

Gashumba recalled the controversial statement made by Gen David Tinyefunza, the then coordinator for intelligence services when the black mamba attacked the High Court in 2005?

He quoted him to have stated, “Invansion of the high court couldn’t have occurred without the express authority and instruction of the highest office of the country”.

“By the way, does anyone remember the atrocities committed by the Kalangala action plan in the early 2000s? Who was behind these atrocities? And on whose authorization were those atrocities committed? Do you remember when Gen Museveni reprimanded his VP Gilbert Bukenya?” Gashumba queried, submitting that Bukenya’s crime was meeting with the Buganda Generals at the time.

Obote Son Beats Up MP Akena Before Their Old Mum Miria Obote At Their Kololo Home…

Jimmy Akena (L) and Miria Obote (R)

The children of Milton Obote are unhappy with Jimmy Akena for dominating everything in the family including the billions they get annually as benefits because their late father was both Prime minister and President of Uganda.

The other two Obote’s sons Eddie Engena Maitum and Tony Akaki are unhappy that Akena and his wife Betty Among are monopolizing all the money without giving them anything. Akena is also politically enjoying all the benefits got from the Obote name in Lango without allowing his brothers to benefit also by shining politically.

When Apac municipality was created, Engena, who is also a pastor in Kenya came home and demanded to stand there on the UPC ticket but Akena blocked him and gave the UPC flag to someone else. Engena went ahead and stood as an independent against Akena’s candidate but lost.

He has been grassing since that time and one afternoon recently, he stormed his mother’s house in Kololo where he demanded to know why he should live in poverty when his father was a very rich man and former President of Uganda. Akena was there, he confronted him and the two exchanged blows until Miria their mother separated them.

Engena accused Miria of favoring Akena even when he mistreats them by denying them benefits of being Obote’s sons. A tearful Engena cursed Akena and assured Miria he will never come back again. Bishop Engena became so much annoyed that even when his Kenyan wife died recently, he grieved alone without involving Akena and other family members.

The miserable Bishop buried his wife in Luwero where he bought land and says he isn’t interested in the Oyima clan things anymore because Akena has monopolized everything back home in Akokoro.

M7 Gives Me Everything I Ask For, I Can’t Be Corrupt – State House Anti-Corruption Unit Chief, Col Edith Nakalema Emphasizes She’s Clean…

State House Anti Corruption Unit boss Lt. Col. Nakalema

Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema has applauded the establishment of the State House Anti Corruption Unit, and says it’s a very great work in progress.

Lieutenant Colonel Edith Nakalema, is a Ugandan military officer, who graduated in August 2018, from the Higher Command and Staff Course at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, in Watchfield, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, where she had been admitted in 2017.

The State House Anti Corruption Unit headed by Nakalema was set up to counter overwhelming corruption cases in late 2018 will now make 2 years on 10 in December this year.

Commending herself for a job well done, Nakalema said, “I am grateful to the appointing authority that made me join the rest of the anti-corruption agencies and become the link between State House and other agencies and the public. We all have to work together.”
She disregarded statements that her unit is overshadowing the other anti-corruption agencies, and argued that they instead work together.

Discussing the progress of the barely two year old unit, Nakalema disclosed that they have managed to recover over UGX 1 billion during the execution of their duties.

“We have also managed to bring back Ugandans who were stuck in the Middle East and unfortunately returned some dead bodies. All the companies that export workers abroad that were not licensed have been closed – about 88 of them,” she said.

“For citizens who have paid to meet the president, it is not too late. We are ready to clean up the State House as long as you show us the dirt,” she added.

According to Nakalema, 247 have so far been investigated and arraigned before the courts of law by the unit, plus 24 convictions within two years.

“We are grateful to the judiciary because our cases have special court hearings in different parts of the country,” she said.

Nakalema however admitted that fighting corruption is not easy at all, but a determined team has made it possibly successful to a certain extent.

She said, “Corruption changes face. People are not ready to expose the corrupt because they benefit. A number of the corrupt have been exposed with the help of the media, whistleblowers, and my team, and we have acted.”

“Corruption starts from family. How you bring up the children matters. The schools they go to and what they are taught matters. You find that little children have to buy sweets for their campaigns in schools,” she added, citing that corruption is a rooted evil.

Denying corruption allegations, she said, “I cannot be corrupted when I have a God who can give me anything and also, I can ask for everything I want from President Museveni.”

M7’s National Address Postponed As Bobi Wine Also Announces Address At Same Time…

NRM presidential candidate Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Museveni (R) and his NUP opponent Bobi Wine

The Presidential Address that was scheduled for 7pm today has been deferred to a new date that will be announced, Museveni’s press secretary, Don Wanyama has revealed.

Museveni was slated starting this Sunday, and every other Sunday during the campaign season to conduct a televised national address.

Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, the National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate has also announced that he will address the nation today at 7:00 PM via Facebook and all other social media platforms. He added that a wide range of matters of national importance are to be communicated in his address.

Meanwhile, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has officially written to the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) demanding to be enlightened about what President Yoweri Museveni is set to air out this evening.

NAB says that it will not kowtow to UCC’s directive if it finds out that Museveni is among other things slated to also seek for votes instead, or else he pays for the airtime.

According to UCC’s directive, all political aspirants are entitled to equal opportunity to speak to Ugandans to enable voters to choose from an informed perspective. The above directive therefore implies that it is wrong and unfair if Museveni as the president is allowed to freely campaign on TV.
