    This was after Kampala tycoons under their umbrella body the ‘Baggaga Kwagalana’ cried to Museveni for help after failing to convince Dr. Talemwa to release the body for burial.

    Dr. Talemwa was forced to release Kaki’s body for burial at his ancestral home in Mukono district.

    While talking about the deceased who he claims was his close friend, Mirundi disclosed how his boss got to know the deceased.

    The faded media consultant said that Museveni was a good friend to late Cranmer Kaaya Njego who was Kaki’s father.

    “During the 1986 war in Luwero, Kaaya was a very rich man with a lot of cattle and plantations where the rebels harvested food for the war. Mzee Kaaya facilitated the war that is why Museveni has always been in touch with his son Kaki,” Mirundi said.

    He added that before Kaki breathed his last, he invited him in the hospital and told him a lot of his secrets including the illness that killed him and protested doctors report that he died of Covid-19.

    Appearing on Kawala based ABS TV, Mirundi insisted that the ‘Baggaga Kwagalana’ group are hiding what killed Kaki.


    Yusuf Saidi Safari, a city businessman who deals in furniture has cursed the late Kaki over a woman. Speaking to theGrapevine, Saidi said that in 2020, he filed an assault case against the controversial tycoon on reference number SD 39/11/03/2020 at Lungujja police station.

    Saidi, a resident of Mengo a Kampala suburb alleges that on the 11th day of march this year at around 11:30pm, he survived being shot dead by Kaki, who always moved with guns.

    “I was preparing to close my workshop in the evening, out of nowhere, this man drove to my shop, got out of his car, beat me up and when I was on the ground, he urinated on me. When I asked him why he was urinating on me, he arrogantly abused me and slapped me in the face. I was furious, so I tried to defend myself so we started fighting. My friends came to my rescue because the man was too powerful and he was killing me,” he narrated.

    He divulged, “When my friends surrounded the man, he pulled out a pistol and placed it on my head, another man who we later identified as his bodyguard pointed a big AK47 gun at my friends. When I feel to the ground, he pointed the big gun to my head.”

    He further revealed that Kaki told him that he has been looking for him to take revenge on him for flirting with his girlfriend, a one Laila behind his back.

    Later, Laila came out of the shop and blasted Kaki for always assaulting her guests.

    She pleaded to Kaki not to kill him because he will cause trouble for them. Kaki then pushed pushed him into the nearby trenches.

    Yusuf disclosed that when he moved out of the trenches, he ran to Lungujja police post where he filed his case but police refused to handle him claiming that he is drunkard even though they could clearly see that he was a Muslim.

    He was later advised to go to Old Kampala police station. He explained that at Old Kampala, he was again told to go back to Lugujja police post.

    After being tired of being tossed up and down, he pleaded with Old Kampala police officers to give him a police patrol to escort him to his workshop so that he could remove his goods because Kaki was still there and could kill him.

    When they reached Mengo, they found Kaki there. The officers feared and advised Yusuf to settle his matter with his tormentor.

    Howevert, one courageous officers told Kaki that what he did was inhuman. Kaki kotowed and promised to pay Yusuf’s medical bills.

    Laila gave him new clothes because he was nearly naked since his clothes were ripped during the fight and smelling urine.

    He explained that from that day, he never received any assistance from Kaki and whenever she tried to talk to Laila his girlfriend, she only advised him to leave the matter because it will cost him his life.

    He explained that he is spending a lot of money on medication as a result of the assault from Kaki because by the time of his death, he had not yet compensated him.

    Kaki’s family could not reach for a comment.

    Minister Esther Mbayo

    Former Minister for Presidency Esther Mbayo has survived arrest after secretly presenting herself to Kibuli based police’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to answer charges related to corruption and nepotism.

    Last month, police threatened to arrest the Luuka district woman Member of Parliament for refusing to respect the criminal summons issued against her through the office of the Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah.

    Mbayo pleaded with the speaker for assistance claiming that the police detectives are being used by her political opponents to humiliate her and brand her a criminal.

    However, the speaker advised her to go to CID and record a statement since police have followed the necessary requirements to summon her as an MP.

    On Monday last week, Mbayo sneaked into CID together with her lawyers and she was grilled by detectives led by Julius Twinomujuni.

    Sources at the CID disclosed that Mbayo was grilled on allegations of influencing the Uganda Printing and Publishing Corporation(UPPC) board to approve her sister Christine Mayengo as the Finance and Accounting manager yet she lacked the required qualifications.

    It is alleged that Mbayo used her influence as the former minister to put pressure on the chairperson Finance, Investment and marketing committee Dr. Patrick Ibembe and Managing Director Tom Wasswa to omit the capable  candidates for the job as advertised in mainstream media in favor of her sister.

    It is further alleged that Dr. Ibembe disclosed that they did not have to engage any external consultant for the said recruitment.

    Sources revealed that Mbayo was told that her sister emerged second in the interview but she was declared the best candidate.

    Sources state that as a token of appreciation to these officials, Mbayo increased their retainer fees from Shs2,500,000 to Shs3,500,000 and Shs2,000,000 to Shs3000,000 to Board chairperson and other members respectively.

    Mbayo was also grilled on allegations that she benefited from the Shs9bn cash which was paid to UPPC by the Electoral Commission to gazette the elected political leaders and polling stations in the recently concluded 2021 general elections.

    Investigators allege that Mbayo directed UPPC management to share the Shs9bn and she was given her share which was used in her 2021 political campaigns in Luuka district.

    Sources revealed that the former minister denied all the allegations and she was released on a police bond.

    The current minister for presidency Milly Babalanda suspended the UPPC board and the management on allegations of corruption, abuse of office and embezzlement.

    Police discover Shs600m in the course of investigation and it alleges that this was part of the Shs9bn paid by the Electoral Commission.

    The police are still investigating the matter.
