MABIRIZI VS BOBI WINE ROUND 1: I’m Not Willing To Give Dishonest DPP My Case, Use Your State Machinery To Bring Kyagulanyi To Court – Mabirizi Tells Court…



Controversial city lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi has put up a spirited fight protesting the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) move to save National Unity Platform (NUP) party Principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu from being privately prosecuted on dishonesty charges.

Replying to State Attorney Peter Mugisha, Mabirizi insisted that DPP does not have any good will that once they take over his application to privately prosecute Kyagulanyi, they will do so in the interest of the public interest and administering justice.

“Your worship, on 2nd of this month, these people from the DPP’s office expressed interest in taking over my case, but why don’t they use the state machinery they have to bring the accused to court? They should not merely come here and tell court that they want to take over our case, we put a lot of effort in these investigations that is why we shall not allow,” Mabirizi submitted.

The revolutionary lawyer tasked the State Attorney to produce evidence from the DPP Justice Jane Frances Abodo that she is the one who instructed them to apply to take over his matter instead of relying on the mere letter from her office.

Mabirizi boasted before Buganda road court magistrate Stella Amabirizi that he is not just a common man but he is an accomplished lawyer who knows how legal issues are handled.

He insisted that there is no way DPP can take over his case since he is already cooperating with government agencies like the Electoral Commission and Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) that is why they gave him all the evidence pining Kyagulanyi.

Mabirizi prayed to the trial magistrate to act independently and not rely on previous cases which the DPP took over with the hidden agenda of frustrating the process of prosecuting the culprits.

Mabirizi tasked the State Attorney to prove to court that they are serious and won’t frustrate his case like they did in Gen Kale Kayihura’s case and Minister Sam Kutesa.

The controversial lawyer later asked court to disregard DPP’s prayer to take his case and proceed with issuing an arrest warrant against Kyagulanyi and bring him to court.

Earlier, State Attorney Mugisha had asked court to first put on hold criminal summons issued against Kyagulanyi until the state fully takes over the case and a new charge sheet is made.

Mugisha told the court that charges against Kyagulanyi were not properly handled while the public had a lot of interest in it.

The trial magistrate adjourned the matter to 28th Sept for a ruling.

Is It Illegal For A Private Citizen To Discuss Political Issues With Veterans: Gen. Tumukunde Runs To Constitutional Court Challenging Judge Ssekaana’s Decision….



Tumukunde (L) in court today

Former Security Minister Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde has run to the Constitutional Court challenging High Court Civil Division Judge Musa Ssekaana’s decision favoring AIGP Grace Akullo the Director of Criminal Investigations in Uganda police.

Through his lawyers led by Anthony Wameli, Lt. Gen. Tumukunde wants the Constitutional court to interpret whether it was legal for the presiding judge to refuse to remove the Attorney General from his case so that he pursues Akullo in her personal capacity.

He insisted that he also wants court to pronounce itself on whether it is legal for the Attorney General to represent a public servant who has been dragged to court in her personal capacity.

The presidential aspirant also wants court to interpret whether it is illegal for a private citizen to discuss political issues with veterans as Akullo claims in her criminal summons he served him.

The former spy chief based his argument on an affidavit sworn by city lawyer Geoffrey Turyamusima who told court that he was present in court when the Attorney General represented Akullo when she was accused in her personal capacity of violating the human rights of a private citizen.

He added that the presiding judge based on the arguments of the Attorney General to dismiss with costs Lt. Gen. Tumukunde’s application of a temporary injunction stopping the CID from summoning him to record statements on charges related to treason.

Lt. Gen. Tumukunde ran to Court challenging Akullo’s criminal summons issued against him where he is being accused of meeting security veterans and discussing political issues stealthily.

Court has not yet set the date to hear Lt. Gen. Tumukunde’s petition.

I WILL NOT SPARE ANYONE: Angry Bobi Wine Knifes Top NUP Registrar For Soliciting For Bribe From Party Members Who Wanted Party Flag…



NUP Principal Bobi Wine

National Unity Platform (NUP) party Principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has started biting by knifing party Electoral Commission bosses who have been implicated in bribery.

The first to test Kyagulanyi’s wrath was Saul Nsongambi the NUP Electoral Register Jinja who was accused of asking for a bribe of between Shs500,000 and Shs1m from members who wanted the party flag for various positions in the looming 2021 general elections.

“It’s true Nsongambi was directed to step down after being implicated that he was involved in corruption tendencies as investigations continue. Such acts undermine our core values of Democracy which NUP stands for,” Alex Waiswa, the NUP Electoral Commission Coordinater confirmed the development.

This website has established that Nsongambi was arrested and detained at Jinja Central Police Station on Tuesday on charges of bribery and receiving money by false pretense but he was later released on police bond.

Waiswa further revealed that the party has suspended the screening exercise until all the complaints filed before the party top Electoral Commission are resolved.

This website has also established that over 200 complaints have been filed by disgruntled party members to the party leadership challenging the manner in which the vetting exercise was handled.

Many of the complaints are implicating Kyagulanyi’s family members and his closest friends of influencing the vetting exercise and favoring their friends.

During the Monday meeting held at Kyagulanyi’s home at Magere in Wakiso, the bitter NUP Principal told the top NUP Electoral Commission bosses led by Mercy Walukamba that he is going to take disciplinary action against any person who was involved in illegal acts during the vetting process because it has put him and his party in bad light.

God Will Ask You How A Good Musician Went Bankrupt – Museveni Launches National Intellectual Property Policy, Inventors To Be Fully Protected By The Law…



President Yoweri Museveni has today presided over the launch of the National Intellectual Property Policy at State House.

Intellectual Property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. Intellectual Property rights grant the owner of the work exclusive rights to exploit and benefit from his/her creations.

The National Intellectual Property Policy will therefore give Ugandans full protection from the law and enable them to earn from their toil and sweat.

The IP plan is a visionary tool looking forward to a Uganda where innovation and creativity can efficiently stimulate sustainable development.

The strategy is aimed at creating a robust IP value chain that fosters innovation and creativity as pillars of sustainable development in the country.

At the launch, President Museveni commended that it is crucial that individuals are rewarded for their innovations. He however cited that IP rights cannot be talked about without addressing the issue of funding for scientist who are behind most of the innovations.

On the same occasion, Museveni also noted that the National IP Policy doesn’t only cover the work of scientists, but also protects the creative work of artists like songs, paintings, among other artistic works.

“It is also a calling from God because God will ask you how a good musician went bankrupt,” he humorously commented.

“It is not good to betray the people you serve. When you serve, you should make sure there are no stones left unturned,” he added.

“For many years, African literature was oral. We now have an opportunity to preserve our rich African literature through copyright. It is important that the government creates an environment where creativity and innovation can thrive,” Museveni said.

President Museveni said that the NRM is committed to supporting innovations aimed at increasing the profitability of Ugandans engaged in different enterprises because one of the leading factors contributing to effective policy implementation is the political commitment and will from the highest level of government.
