Mr. President The Situation Is Very Tough And Each Day We Miss Working, We Lose Money – Traders Cry Out, Roads Closed As Museveni Tours Kampala

Published

Business has come to a standstill today in the central business district as a section of traders await president Museveni’s visit.

Most roads in the busiest parts of Kampala like Nakivubo, Nakasero, Old Park, Owino, Namirembe Road have been sealed off from 6:00AM as security forces prepare for Musevenis visit to these areas.

However, a section of traders who do business in these areas have cried out to the president to tell the organisers of these tours to do proper planning without discorganising their business routines because since morning they have done nothing and earned nothing after security operatives closed most of the roads to their businesses.

“The president himself has always told the opposition not to hold rallies in the busy centres in town where traders do business from. Surprisingly, he is now doing the same thing that he always asked others not to do. Our businesses are at a standstill, we have not worked today, everything is disorganised and people have not come to the city centre,” one of the traders told the Grapevine.

Access roads to Nakasero market have remained closed since morning with security operatives checking everyone who wants to access the market where the president is expected to hold a rally. We witnessed the same at the old taxi park as well as the areas around Namirembe road.

“I advise our beloved president that the situation is very tough and each day we miss out of work is a very big setback in our businesses. He once said that they won’t allow politicians in the city, we ask him to respect those words whether it’s opposition or NRM,” another trader said.

Police in Mukono has arrested Rehema Mahayana 24 for allegedly cutting off her boyfriend’s penis.
Rehema told police she waited until her boyfriend Anthony Sekawa 28, had fallen asleep then cut off his manhood with a 4-inch knife.
Sekawa told police that he got into a fight with Rehema as he was trying to save his life because the she never stopped at taking his whopper but she also tried to slit his throat.
Sekawa was later saved by his neighbours who heard him shout because of the pain after his penis had been detached.
Upon arrest, Rehema told police that she had recently discovered her boyfriend was seeing different girls at a brothel located in Wantoni Mukono District and hatched the revenge plot against Sekawa.
“I discovered that he was secretly going out and flirting with other girls at different bars. This made me very angry. I was full of anger inside and couldn’t relax,” she narrated.
Sekawa was rushed to Namirembe Hospital for treatment while Kabayana was arrested and held in custody over the attack.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire confirmed that Mukono Police had received an emergency call about a man’s penis being cut off with a knife and responded so fast.
Owoyesigyire said that police arrived along with rescue staff and found the man severely injured and was rushed to hospital.
Detectives have discovered that the two had longtime relationship misunderstandings and that the suspect had on several occasions demanded he ceases contact with any other women, including not talking to them, answering their calls or even smiling at them which he however declined to adhere to.
The victim told police that he loved his girlfriend and believed she maimed his manhood in a grizzly bid to make sure he did not stray looking for other women.

MP Who Told Ugandans Who Don’t Want To Pay Mobile Money Tax To Die Chased From Burial By Angry Mourners

Published

Bunyole West MP Hon. James Waluswaka

Members of Parliament have started facing the wrath from their voters for supporting the passing of Mobile Money tax.

On Monday, Bunyole West MP Hon. James Waluswaka was chased away from the burial ceremony of one of the locals by angry mourners for supporting the tax.

The lawmaker had turned up at Mugulu-Busolwe Sub-County headquarters, where mourners were paying their last respects to Yokonan Were, the father to Butaleja District Planner, Sam Taata.

Before Mr. Waluswaka could get out of his vehicle, mourners swarmed on him accusing him of supporting the tax without consulting them.

“We expected him to vote against the tax but he betrayed us; we no longer want him to address us,” the mourners chorused. They also accused him of ‘lying’ when he said on the floor of Parliament that his constituents support the tax.

Mr. Waluswaka is infamously remembered for advising Ugandans to ‘die’ if they don’t want to pay Mobile Money and social media taxes.

Finance The NRM Primaries Instead Of Giving Out Money To Fake NRM Supporters – NRM Candidate Advises Museveni

Published

Jane Nantongo Semuddu

KASANDA: National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate vying to represent the party in the coming woman Member of Parliament elections for the newly created Kasanda district has advised president Museveni who also doubles as the party chairman to first solve the in-house problems before looking outside.

Jane Nantongo Semuddu, one of the contestants in the NRM primaries has called upon the president to intervene in their NRM primaries because the party electoral commission boss Dr Tanga Odoi has failed to organise the primaries claiming that they don’t have money.

Nantongo says that it is a pity to see the president dishing out money to different groups of people some of who are duping him yet his own party cannot organize primaries because of funds.

“It’s very disturbing to see our chairman giving out money yet the secretariat says they have no money to organise the primaries. Can’t they talk to the national chairman and this is solved? We resigned from our jobs, we have families, there is no way we can look after them when we are not working, it’s now more than six months and we are seeing nothing yet other areas are getting by elections, why not us from Kasanda? Look, Shema North had just been created but they got their leaders, what’s wrong with us?” Nantongo asked.

While meeting different stake holders and residents of Bukuya Town council in  Kasanda district  last evening, Nantongo revealed that other political parties at Kasanda district are very organised and have already got people flag bearers unlike NRM where things are being mishandled, she warned that this is weakening the party.

“What is so special in Sheema North, Sheema Municipality, Bugiri, Busia and others where elections and primaries have been held that is not in Kasanda, sometimes we have to be very realistic,” Nantongo lashed

Five people are contesting to be the NRM flag bearers of the newly created Kasanda district which was cut off Mubende district.

However the NRM electoral Commission recently communicated that they don’t have money and the primaries were postponed until further notice.
