    MAID TO PIN SIPAPA, WIFE: Socialite In More Trouble, UPDF General Reveals Shocking Evidence Against Him…

    Incarcerated self-claimed city businessman Charles Olim alias Sipapa and his wife Shamirah Nakiyimba are in more trouble after celebrated UPDF General, Rtd. Lt Gen. Proscovia Nalweyiso, who also doubles as the senior presidential advisor on security revealed shocking evidence against them.

    On Friday, Makindye Chief Magistrate’s Court remanded Sipapa and wife to Luzira prison after they pleaded not guilty on six counts of aggravated robbery.

    State alleged that the accused persons together with others still at large attacked South Sudan businessman Jacob Arok and robbed him Shs1.65b, television sets and expensive phones.

    State further claimed that part of the exhibits was recovered at Sipapa’s home in Kira Municipality Wakiso district.

    State added that they used CCTV cameras from Arok’s home to identify the accused persons and this evidence will be used by prosecution against the accused.

    State claims that the footage secured by police’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) detectives from Arok’s home shows the accused person and others breaking into the house.

    When they reached inside, they sprayed a certain substance which they suspect to be chloroform which made the victims lose consciousness and they robbed them clean.

    Even though the accused persons denied the accusations against them, Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso insists that they committed the crimes.

    “For a long time, I have been fighting against Sipapa and I directed security to withdraw UPDF and police guards from him because he is among the people who command criminal gangs in the city,” she explains in a recording released by the police’s CID department.

    “I don’t think they are accusing him falsely. Sipapa is a thief, I have been on his case even police officers know that. He is one of the people who enter people’s apartments and they enter over 30 people to steal people’s laptops, phones even cars.”

    She adds that Sipapa has been using the photos he took with powerful government officials to intimidate police officers and officers from other security agencies.

    Nalweyiso pleaded with officers to stop being compromised while on duty and remember that they have a duty to keep Ugandans safe with their properties instead of being threatened by criminals like Sipapa.

    “I request all people to intervene in this war and police officers to fight this,” she pleaded.

    She cited another person who behaves like Sipapa who drives an army green Landcruiser V8 old model with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s photos as his motor vehicle number plate.

    It should be remembered that during the 2021 general elections, Sipapa stormed the National Unity Platform (NUP) offices at Kamwokya and shot bullets at their gate injuring some of their supporters.

    In another development, theGrapevine has established that among the star witnesses the state is going to parade to testify against Sipapa and his co-accused include the maid to Arok.

    State alleges that in her statement, the maid told detectives that she remembers whatever happened when the accused persons stormed her boss’ home up to when she lost consciousness as a result of the substance they sprayed in the house.

    The Maid was among the first suspects arrested by security but she was released from Kabalagala police station when officers established that she was innocent.

    Security is still looking for other suspects who they claim work with the accused persons to terrorize Ugandans especially in Kampala, Mukono and Wakiso.

    Among the suspects on the run include a Chinese international and a senior female police officer who it is alleged have run out of the country.

    PICTURES:  Pastor Bujjingo Fills Up Kololo Grounds During Independence Night Prayers; Pr. Kayiwa Asks His Brother Kato Lubwama To Get Saved…

    Published

    on

    Thousands of believers flocked Kololo Independence grounds to Pray, Praise and worship the Almighty God.

    This was during the Independence Night prayers organised by House of Prayer Ministries International pastor, Aloysious Bujjingo.

    Believers from different parts of the country and abroad withstood the rain to worship and pray from Friday 6:00am to Saturday 6:00am.

    Independence night prayers are organized every year every year towards independence.

    Pr. Bujjingo revealed that just like Uganda was able to get independence in 1962 from the British, he decided to organise these prayers to pray for believers so that they are liberated from whatever is distressing their lives.

    The theme for this year’s prayers was ‘Pursue, Overtake and Recover All’, from 1 Samuel 30:8 where King David inquired from God concerning launching an attack on Israel’s enemy, the Amalekites, “Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And He answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

    Pr. Bujjingo told believers that through constant prayer, trust and faith in the Almighty God, He will give them victory in anything that they need and pray for including fighting their enemies both seen and unseen just like He did for David.

    He further told believers to always depend and rely fully on God for a good life here on earth and also for the inheritance of eternal life.

    Believers were seen in deep prayer with some rolling on the floor as they were delivered from demons.

    During prayers, Pr. Bujjingo invited his spiritual father, Pr. Simeon Kayiwa, the Vice Chancellor for Kayiwa University who appreciated him so much for saving his brother former Member of Parliament, Kato Lubwama.

    Through a song, Pr. Simeon noted that Lubwama loves Pr. Bujjingo so much that he (Lubwama) tried to understand how to pray.

    “I know most of you people were not aware that Kato Lubwama is my biological brother and that we share the same mother,” he said.

    He added, “I know he is not saved but I believe one day he will because he loves you (Bujjingo) so much. Thank you for loving him too.”

    Bujjingo prayed through the rain which started at 2:00pm and stopped at 5;00pm leaving many socked in water but that did not stop them from worshiping and praying to God.

    During the night prayers at 11:00pm, Bujjingo introduced his wife, Suzan Makula and the couple excited believers when they danced the “kinyarwanda dance”.

    Over 2000 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ.

    Where Is My Brother And Cousin Who You Picked From Our Home In A Drone? Former NBS Journalist Tasks UPDF…

    Published

    Jornalist Bahati Remmy and UPDF spokesperson Brig. Felix Kulayigye (R)

    Former NBS journalist, Remmy Bahati has questioned government over the unlawful arrest and detention of her relatives.

    Bahati alleges that her family fell victim to the drone abductions yesterday.

    She revealed that armed plain clothed men driving a drone with no plates stormed her 76-year-old father’s house in Fort Portal City under the guise of searching for ‘guns’.

    “They didn’t find any (guns) and abducted my brother, cousin and his friend who was visiting. Their whereabouts are unknown. Help me find them,” she added.

    The US-based journalist has since pleaded with the defence Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye to investigate the matter and help her find her family members.

    “My dad has been going from one police station to the other looking for them but no luck. I demand to know the whereabouts of my brother, cousin and friend identified as Abala.”

    In response to her cry, Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye revealed that last evening, the flying squad arrested a one Allan who has been masquerading as a soldier.

    “Police flying Squad assisted by other security agencies carried out an operation to apprehend criminals who have been masquerading in military attires, conning people in & around Fort Portal City. On a tip off, one Kanyesige Allan, main suspect, was netted in Semuliki Lodge and Bar with a lady accomplice, Peace Sudai.”

    “On brief interrogation, he led the security team to the home of Katungi Kelvin, claiming to be his place of aboard. Katungi Kelvin was also on the wanted list as an associate. He too was apprehended. Two other associates Mugisa lsaaya and Asa ba Abdulatif were also arrested. They are all detained at CPS Fort Portal.” UPDF spokesperson said in a statement.

    However, Bahati told the UPDF Spokesperson that none of the people mentioned is a relative to her.

    “None of the pictures of the suspects shared by UPDF is related to me. UPDF don’t play games with me. I need to know where my brother is. Period! The unlawful detentions, torture and abductions must stop.”

    “Where is my brother Mr. Katungi Kelvin, My cousin Mugume Latif and their friend Identified as Abala who you picked up from home in a drone?” she asked.

    UPDF responded to her that, “I did not say they are your relatives, we have shown you those that we arrested from Fort Portal. That’s all.”

    This comes after a number of alleged abductions of different opposition supporters in the infamous drones.

    National Unity Platform (NUP) president, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine recently demanded the release of these victims dead or alive.

    He noted, “The Drones Are Back.” These past three weeks, 15 of our people have been abducted by state operatives. Most are still missing. Others were brought to court days or weeks later, limping as a result of grave torture.”

    I Have Not Asked Anyone To Bail Me Out, I Will Rise Again Like Job In The Bible – Kusasira Tells Netizens Celebrating Her Demise…

    Published

    on

    Musician Catherine Kusasira

    Senior Presidential advisor and musician Catherine Kusasira has blasted those celebrating her demise.

    This week Cranima Associates auctioned the musician’s house for failing to clear her loan.

    “Upon instructions from our client a registered Mortgagee, we shall proceed to sell the under mentioned property and developments thereon if any, after the expiry of the thirty (30) days from the date of this notice or thereafter unless the mortgagor/debtor, pays all monies owed to our client, plus our fees and costs incurred in the process,” the advert read.

    Kusasira has now assured haters that he doesn’t need them to bail her out because she has not asked for their help.

    “I have not yet asked anyone to bail me out because people are haters. You are saying I was given a lot of money. State House did not give me that money that you saw me showing off with, it is Balaam who gave me that money. State House does not give old notes,” she noted.

    She added, “But what I know is I’m a strong woman, if the house has gone it is okay. I will get another one. I believe that the God who gave me these things will bring them back.

    “I want to be like Job in the Bible, Job was a believer who never lost his faith in God. Even when they take everything, I will never stop supporting President Museveni.”

    However, blogger Ibrahim Tusubira alias Isma Olaxess consoled his fellow NRM die-hard that it is normal for one to make wrong decisions in business.

    “There factors that lead to such problems like financial discipline. When one holds money that they have never held, they start to spend it like nothing and you feel like your life is changing drastically.”

    Olaxess further advised Kusasira that financial discipline is required in business especially when one gets a lot of money.

    Isma sarcastically told Kusasira that if Balaam gave her money at the start, she should go back to him for more.

    “Kusasira said she is a strong woman. Let her find her friends who helped her in the first place to bail her out.”

    He furthermore adduced that people should stop talking about NRM money being cursed.

    “Won’t we drive nice cars; won’t we sit in aeroplanes, because hospitals are not built? They should understand that those hospitals won’t employ us,” Isma said.
