    Mr. David Ebanget (37), a Music Producer and resident of Kulambiro has told the High Court that sat in Entebbe today that while at De Bar hangout, Godfrey Wamala alias Troy, the man accused of killing musician Mozey Radio,  grabbed the deceased from a one Pamela Musimire, threw him down and took off.

    Mr. Ebangat who says he had known Mozey Radio for 10 years told presiding Judge Jane Francis Abodo that on the fateful date, “Radio poured booze on some people before a one Ms. Pamela Musimire and another person only identified as Mr Ategeka intervened and took him out of the bar.”

    He added that when Radio was taken out of the bar, Wamala grabbed him, pushed him down and took off into hiding in Kyengera- Wakiso District, until 4th/February/ 2018 when he handed himself into police hands upon hearing that Radio was dead.

    The second witness was Musimire Pamela (37), a resident of Abaita Ababiri told High court that on 22/January/2019, the deceased (Mowzey Radio) called her and directed her to find him  at Debar. On reaching there, she found Troy, the bar owner, a one Hassan  Muwonge and other people she could not identify.

    “Mowzey asked the bar owner to buy for him booze, but the bar owner told him that he had no money. He however ordered the waitress to bring a bottle of whisky, on bringing it, Mowzey didn’t drink it but instead poured it in glasses of other people, and poured the remaining booze on the owner of bar which angered him,” Pamela testified in court.

    Pamela told Justice Abodo that the owner of the bar then asked her to take Mowzey out which she did, and it’s at that moment that Troy followed them and pulled Mowzey from Pamela and pushed him down and he took off.

    The third witness was Mowzey’s mother Ms. Jane Kasubo who implored court to exercise justice in this case. The fourth witness was a friend to the late Musician, Mr. Hassan Muwonge 28, a resident of Entebbe Church road.

    Mr. Muwonge told court that on that fateful day, Mowzey came with Producer Washington to De bar, Muwonge said that he saw Mowzey pouring booze on the bar owner which angered him. The bar owner told Pamela to take Mowzey out, while Hassan took the bar owner to the washrooms.

    However, Hassan said that he didn’t see who beat up his friend.

    However, when Troy’s Lawyer Mr. Leonard Kasibante cross-examined the witnesses, he tasked them to explain to court how they got to know Troy;  Washington told court that he knew Troy through Pamela, while Pamela testified that she had seen Troy at Debar although she didn’t know him until she was called to record a  statement at police.

    The fourth witness Hassan Muwonge said he is the one who introduced Troy to Pamela while at Debar, a hangout in Entebbe.

    Mirundi Narrates How He Survived Bullets After Allegedly Urinating On Pastor Ssenyonga’s Building…

    Tamale Mirundi

    President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s Senior Presidential Advisor on Media has narrated how he survived bullets while urinating on the building belonging to Pastor Jackson Ssenyonga of Christian Life Church in Bwaise a Kampala suburb.

    Joseph Tamale Mirundi revealed that one day, during the days when he was still being hosted at Pastor Ssenyonga’s top radio every Monday, he was approached by a Local Defense Unity (LDU) Soldier who accused him of dirtening their place of work. The LDU officer told Mirundi that his action were likely to cause deadly diseases to those who attend the church.

    Mirundi said that when he denied committing any crime, the LDU officer started pointing at the zip of his trousers claiming that it was open. He carefully observed him coaching his gun.

    He boasted that his senses informed him that the LDU man wanted to shoot him. He jumped in the air like an SFC Command and kicked the LDU soldier in the chest sending him tumbling down.

    He added that he stepped on his neck and the LDU officer was saved by Mirundi’s SFC Commandos who were given to him by Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba who pleaded with him not to kill a government soldier.

    “For me I fear those LDU people and I don’t want to come close to them because they are naive and they always want to show the public that they know how to use a gun. They don’t normally get the opportunity to fire bullets like other soldiers who go to war. So I don’t want them to make me their shooting target,” Mirundi said.

    He further revealed that he made investigations through his Mirundi Internal Security Organisation (MISO) and established that there was a senior pastor who was behind the LDU soldier who wanted him dead because of his loyalty and support to House of Prayer Ministries International senior pastor Alosious Bujjingo.

    He claimed that the said pastor had a misunderstanding with Bujjingo and was the one behind Teddy Bujjingo Naluswa who is fighting Bijjingo’s divorce case at the Family Division of the High Court.

    TROUBLE: How Top Magistrate Fueled City Businessman’s Divorce To Chew His Wife…

    Published

    on

    Drama ensued recently when a Master of Ceremony (MC) was forced to withdraw a microphone from a city businessman who attacked a male magistrate accusing him of fueling the collapse of his marriage.

    The incident happened at a public engagement meeting that was held at a playground in one of the five Divisions that form Kampala city where the Division leadership and the magistrate (names withheld) were invited by the Division Deputy Resident City Commission to advise the public on how to prevent and fight crime and to assess the public’s views towards the Court’s performance in the area

    When the invited guest had finished making their speeches, the MC invited those with questions to ask for the microphone.

    Among the attendees was a businessman (names withheld) who is popular in the Division.

    When he raised his hand, the MC quickly gave him the microphone.

    “I thank all our leaders here for organising such a wonderful meeting to air out our grievances and problems. I have a serious issue with our magistrate who is here with us, I’m very sure that he knows me very well because I appeared before him defending my marriage but he used the law to make sure that I lose my wife,” the businessman said before the microphone was grabbed from him.

    The crowd started shouting on top of their voices asking the MC why he removed the microphone from their man. The crowd wondered why he was being silenced yet the meeting was called to give them the opportunity to air out their grievances.

    The MC advised the businessman to talk to his lawyers and advised him on how to get justice, insisting that he cannot allow a full magistrate to be humiliated without evidence.

    theGrapevine sat the businessman down quietly after the meeting and he narrated how the said magistrate stole his wife.

    The businessman claimed that it all started when he appeared before the said magistrate to defend the divorce case his wife had filed against him.

    He disclosed that throughout the whole case, the Magistrate was harsh towards him and he did not know why.

    “I pleaded with him to give me six months to sort out my issues with my wife because I was still in love with her given that her issue was very small but the man just directed me to come back the next week for the hearing of the case,” the businessman said.

    He claims that he was surprised one day when after the hearing, he waited at the court premises to talk to his wife, who spent almost an hour inside court.

    When he went back inside court to ask the clerk about the whereabouts of his wife, the clerk told him that she was still inside the magistrate’s chambers.

    He said that within one month after the incident, the magistrate had already finished the case, dissolved the marriage and while delivering his judgment warned him to stop playing with people’s daughters because in the end they kill their future.

    He claims that he did not respond to him but just moved out of the courtroom since he had lost his wife, and his properties.

    He said that the next time he saw his wife moving with the magistrate in the same car and he was told that they are in love which confirmed allegations that he was the one fueling their divorce to speed up the process because he was interested in her even though she was legally married.

    He was advised by his friend who is a lawyer to petition Judicial Service Commission for help.

    Lawyers Want International Police To Arrest Tycoon Bitature, Wife Carol As Court Of Appeal Justice Okays Criminal Prosecution Against Him Over Shs100bn Fraud…

    Controversial city tycoon Patrick Bitature and wife Carol Bitature are in big trouble after lawyers representing Robert Kirunda the agent of the South African based money lending company Vantage Mezzanine Fund 11 Partnership kicked off the process of involving the International police to arrest them on sight.

    The lawyers led by Moses Muziki kicked off the process after defeating the businessman and his wife at the Court of Appeal where Justice Hallen Obura sitting as a single justice struck out the Bitatures’ application and allowed criminal prosecution slapped on them at Buganda Road Court to proceed.

    In her summary ruling, Justice Obura declared that Bitature and his wife’s application was incompetent and was wrongly filed in Court because they lacked locus to challenge the decision of the High Court Judge.

    Last month, Ronald Kayizzi, the Buganda Road Chief Magistrate issued Criminal summons against Bitature and Carol to answer to fraud charges against them.

    The accused persons are supposed to appear in Court next week.

    However theGrapevine has established that they are still out of the country and Kirunda’s lawyers fear that they might not come back but hide in the United States or United Kingdom where they went last month.

    “They know the evidence we have against them and they are on the run, we have to involve International police to arrest them on sight,” one of the lawyers said.

    When asked for the next move, Brian Moogi, the accused’s lawyer explained that he needs to first consult his client before announcing their next move.

    He however did not rule out the possibility of challenging Justice Obura’s ruling before the panel of three justices.

    Bitature and wife rushed to the Court Of Appeal after Justice Rosette Kania of the Criminal Division of the High Court ordered Buganda Road Court Chief Magistrate to reinstate criminal charges against the accused persons which were dismissed by the same court.

    Bitature went to the Court of Appeal claiming that Justice Kania violated his rights and his wife’s rights by denying them the opportunity to be heard when the matter went before her.

    The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) took over the matter from Kirunda the Private Prosecutor and she is expected to proceed with it to its conclusion.

    Kirunda claims that in December 2014 at Diamond Trust Building along Kampala Road, Bitature and his wife through their companies of Linda Properties, Elgon Terrace Ltd and Simba Telecom borrowed Shs38bn from Vantage Mezzanine Fund 11 Partnership and they offered their companies’ shares as security.

    He added that between 2019 and 2020, they both fraudulently altered shares of their companies with intent to defraud Vantage Mezzanine Fund 11 Partnership of about Shs101bn.
