    OPINION: One Million March: Don’t Be Misled By Bobi Wine…



    Bobi Wine at one of his rallies. Inset is the writer George Mubiru

    After president Museveni and his government granting him a chance to traverse the country making political rallies (a chance he later misused by making reckless and irresponsible statements), National Unity platform’s  Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine immediately flew to Canada to meet his diaspora supporters and donors.

    Much as police later banned his rallies, being granted the right to do something doesn’t mean doing it wrongly. He misused his right because his hate speeches of tribalism could plunge this beautiful country into genocide.

    It should be remembered that he first went to the U.S with his family to premier a film on how Uganda is bleeding and on his return, he immediately announced his plan to make country wide tours.

    I believe all this was a calculated move to simulate the masses, go back to the imperialists and come back with the One million reception we are all hearing to distabilise the country with hopes of eventually overthrowing a legitimate government with the help of some western enemies of Uganda. Very unfortunate!!!!

    To a lay man who may not know the logic here, Bobi Wine has minted and bagged billions of money from his overseas donors. He is ridding on shoulders of innocent Ugandans hoodwinking them to make money and he has successfully achieved this.

    Bobi Wine’s mythology calls with ruthlessness symbolizes selfishness, opportunism, greed and calculating plunders through applying the most heartless measure of inciting the innocent people into danger for personal gains.

    If you’re one of those people being blind folded to be part of the illegal and unpopular One million march on October 5th 2023, ask yourself these questions below;

    1. Do you have an armoured vehicle like that of Bobi Wine?
    2. Does Bobi Wine share all that money he gets from his donors with you?
    3. If you don’t share the money with him, then who does and how do you benefit from the so called struggle?
    4. Which strength do you have to successfully fight one of the strongest military and police in Africa?
    5. Are you ready to die or be crippled forever?
    6. How well have you prepared and organized your family financially, socially, etc incase you die or get crippled?

    I appeal to Ugandans most especially the youths, to shun Bobi Wine, avoid danger and concentrate on their businesses. Most of these politicians are opportunists and money makers.

    We exist in an abundant world with enough for everyone but there are those hoarding the resources while telling you they are scarce and doing it knowingly to exploit you as their capital. Ugandans are meant to direct the anger and disgust at Kyagulanyi.

    Make use of the flourishing political stability and peace in the country to improve on your socio-economic status. Bobi Wine will not pay your bills, buy food, build a house etc. for you.

    We should not greedily take in any lie that flatters us and sip only little by little at a truth we find bitter.

    Selfish, Shameless And Proud Of It! M7 Minister Makes A ‘Nyokory’ Of Herself: Narrates Why She Sold Off Ambulance She Had Bought For Voters After They Refused To Vote For Her….



    Minister Evelyn Anite

    Decency and integrity in this .com generation has gone to the dogs, even among those holding public offices.

    Just yesterday, State Minister of Finance for Investment and Privatization Evelyn Anite; you’ve guessed right, the one who kissed her hubby and shared the pictures on X bragged about selling the ambulance she bought for her voters when they denied her votes.

    “I am shameless to the extent that I sold it,” Minister Anite said in one of her replies.

    It all started when African Facts Zone, a platform on X that posts African news took a swipe at Anite with a post, “Ugandan Politician, Evelyn Anite took back an ambulance she donated to her district, after losing an election in 2021.”

    Anite proudly posted back that what they had posted was true, she is proud of what she did and she has no apologies.

    “@AfricaFactsZone, Thank you for bringing this up. First, it’s true I took back my ambulance & I have no apologies for that. Why did I do it? It’s because they didn’t vote for me. So did you expect me to walkaway with nothing? Galatians 6:7 A man reaps what he sows,” Anite answered back.

    When a one Ssesanga tried to call it fake news, Anite told him that it was not fake news, she did it and she is proud of it.

    “Fake news. My best friend @HonAniteEvelyn cannot do that. She has done more for her region than most of politicians from that region,” Ssesanga posted.

    Anite replied, “My dear, I actually did it, and I am very proud of my action. Once they said go away, I packed all my belongings and left them. now I hear people crying as if I was the first one to call it quites. The Bible says the wage of sin is death.”

    From then, Minister Anite went into a war of words with netizens who attacked her for being; selfish, heartless, shameless and a mountain of other insults.

    “They made you who you are today! Without them you wouldn’t be known. It was pettiness! Sometimes we need to appreciate and understand when it’s time to let go! Those are your voters and I believe you’ll come back to them before 2026. Be Real,” Ronnie Roland said.

    Anite replied, “You have no idea what my background is read more about me on how I started.”

    Gabriel K wrote, “Am I reading right? How about the many who voted you? .. these are our leaders? God have mercy!”

    Anite responded, “My dear they should have defended their votes.”

    Dr. Bale wrote, “This is the level of embarrassment we are now happy about. A minister is happy to withdraw service. You wonder, do you still serve the same people as minister? The statement would be good if you rejected the ministerial position and went private as you say.”

    Minister Anite replied, “I am also in private sector. My dear you are not even feeling the pain I went through after losing elections. What makes you think what they did to me was good and what I did was bad. Feel the pain I felt that day.”

    However, there were some who supported her actions.

    John Paul Guminkiriza wrote, “Even if I was the one I withdraw it, if you vote someone else, Let the one whom you have voted buy it for you. You are a true business lady and investor you can’t invest where you don’t expect ROI.”

    Below are some of the screenshots of the exchange between Anite and a section of netizens.

    FROM BEING M7 DIE HARD FAN TO BECOMING HIS NO.1 ENEMY: Inside Story Of How Dr. Kiyingi Turned Guns On M7, Battled Gen. Kayihura, Cursed Family And Opposition Top Politicians; Widow In Trouble As Family Ask Hard Questions Concerning His Death…



    President Museveni (L), Dr. Aggrey Kiyingi (C) and Gen. Kayihura

    The State Minister for foreign affairs Henry Okello Oryem confirmed to theGrapevine that the family of the late celebrated international cardiologist Dr. Aggrey Kiyingi Ssebowa has to first seek permission from President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s government for his body to be allowed into the country for burial at his ancestral home in Busukuma Division, Nasana Municipality, Wakiso district.

    Last week, Mariam Nakayiira, wife to Dr. Kiyingi through her social media platforms, announced that the father of her kids had died.

    In the early 2000s, during the burial of his mother Norah Kiyingi Ssebowa at Seeta village, then Busukuma Sub county Wakiso district, Dr. Kiyingi declared support for the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

    By then, he revealed that his family is political and has members supporting different political parties. He gave the example of his young brother Samuel Kagulire Ssebowa who was a staunch supporter and a founding member of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and Dr. Kizza Besigye.

    He welcomed opposition legislators who attended the burial led by Winnie Byanyima, wife to Dr. Besigye.

    The NRM was highly represented and President Museveni sent his condolence message. Among the government officials who attended the burial included; the late Gen Elly Tumwine, Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala the current senior works and transport minister, Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi the current security minister among others.

    Dr. Kiyingi’s father the late Azalia Ssebowa was a strong supporter of Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) and Dr. Milton Obote murdered him because of politics.

    Dr. Kiyingi was praised for loving his mother to the extent of taking her to good medical facilities some of the most expensive hospitals.

    Because Dr. Kiyingi was an international cardiologist based in Australia, this attracted to him popularity countrywide particularly in Buganda and his name was always mentioned on Buganda Kingdom’s Central Broadcasting Services (CBS) where he was always praised as the only black cardiologist who operated hearts of the rich and powerful of the world including American presidents.

    Dr. Kiyingi through his Dehezi Computer International built CBS radio website and he started donating computers to schools in Buganda including Namulonge Primary School where his mother was a board member sitting on the PTA Committee before her death.

    He also started donating money and other requirements to churches and one of the beneficiaries was Katuso church at Buziga in Makindye Division Kampala city where he was given a special seat which no one was allowed to use even while he was away.

    Dr. Kiyingi started meeting and holding meetings with high level clergy from the Church of Uganda especially West Buganda dioceses and Namirembe dioceses.


    Highly placed sources at Mengo revealed to theGrapevine that President Museveni was later briefed by intelligence that Dr. Kiyingi was building a political base in Buganda and had started meeting key Buganda Kingdom decision makers and church leaders privately with former Vice president professor Gilbert Bukenya and they were cooking a political coalition.

    As Museveni carried out clandestine investigation, sources claim that Dr. Kiyingi started getting suspicious that his first wife Robinah Kayaga Kiyingi was being used by the State to spy on him.

    He was advised to file a divorce case at Mengo court accusing her of adultery.

    Sources claim that Dr. Kiyingi’s suspicion increased when his secured a well paying job at Transparency International, an organisation fighting corruption.

    Before joining Transparency International, Robinah was struggling with her Kiyingi and Company Advocates.


    When Dr. Kiyingi filed for divorce, his wife opposed it.

    She explained that Mengo Court lacked jurisdiction to handle the matter.

    She filed similar proceedings in an Australia Court, where she thought and believed her property interests and other interests would better be catered for because of the property the family had in Australia and by the fact that the petitioner had a dual citizenship in Australia and Uganda.

    She also further accused Dr. Kiyingi of plotting for her death and she expressed this plot overtly by talking to various.

    She reported one such incident to police and to her relatives whereupon she expressed fear that Dr. Kiyingi, was after her life.

    As the legal battles proceeded in Uganda and Australia, Robinah was gunned down on 11th July, 2005 at around 9.00pm while she was entering her gate in Buziga at 8pm and the prime suspect was Dr. Kiyingi.

    Kiyingi was humiliated at the burial of his wife and his mother-in-law nearly slapped him.

    His children also refused to greet him, his brothers-in-law insulted him and he was saved by security.

    Sources claim that a decision was taken to arrest Dr. Kiyingi at the burial of his wife but Gen. Tumwine advised that he should be given time to mourn his wife’s death as investigations proceed.

    However, detectives at the police’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) claimed that the Australian government was planning to help him run out of the country to survive arrest.

    Security was heavily deployed at his Buziga home.

    He was slapped with murder charges together with Charles Berwanaho and No. 22682 D/C Mugisha Bob.

    The late Joan Namazzi Kagezi, a nonsense prosecutor with the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), who was also a close friend to Robinah led the prosecution team.

    They told the now late Justice Robby Opio Aweri that Dr. Kiyingi masterminded the brutal murder of his wife because she was threatening to have a share of their multibillion empire.

    Dr. Kiyingi was saved by the criminal law giant MacDosman Kabega who put up a spirited legal fight and he was exonerated when Justice Aweri ruled that he had no case to answer.

    Once the judgment was delivered, Dr. Kiyingi immediately ran out of the country after being advised to do so to avoid re-arrest because the State was planning to appeal the ruling.

    Counsel Kabega was supposed to attach some properties of Dr. Kiyingi because he disappeared without paying him fully.

    Another remembered scenario in Kiyingi’s case was the death of the prime suspect whom State accused of pulling the trigger that ended Robinah’s life, he died in the prison’s bus while he was being driven back to Luzira prison.


    Dr. Kiyingi was humiliated to the born marrow in court when his own children testified against him in the murder case. He later told his close friends that his young brother Kagulire Ssebowa and their maternal and paternal uncles and aunties influenced them and he cursed them.

    Sources in the Ssebowa family told theGrapevine during our investigations that Dr. Kiyingi claimed that his family members wanted him to be sentenced to death so that they could grab his multibillion empire.

    However, theGrapevine has learnt that he forgave them and by the time he breathed his last, he was on good terms with children.

    Sources told theGrapevine that as years went by Dr. Kiyingi’s fellow doctors here and in Australia advised him to get another wife because he was lonely, always in deep thought.

    That is how he was connected to Nakayiira, a singer from Gomba in Masaka District.

    They later got married and had children but some of the family members told theGrapevine that she has been controlling him and preventing them from talking to him.

    These family members also allege that they want the Australian government to investigate Nakayiira because they are not buying her narrative concerning the cause of Kiyingi’s death.

    “We haven’t yet received the postmortem report, we are sure that the Australian government is investigating the death of Dr. Kiyingi because has been an asset,” a family member told theGrapevine.

    Nakayiira is a young sister to Aisha Nakasibante who was charged with terrorism, murder and treason charges together with tabliq sheikhs led by Sheikh Yunus MUhammad Kamoga and her boyfriend Sheikh Multerd Bukenya who is also young brother to Sheikh Kamoga.

    They were later exonerated at the Court of Appeal after appealing at the Crimes War Division of the High Court.


    Former Makindye East legislator Ibrahim Kasozi was among the many opposition politicians and journalists who survived charges and detentions on allegations of cooperating with Dr. Kiyingi to overthrow President Museveni’s government.

    Former Inspector General of police Gen. Edward Kale Kayihura, in one of the briefing to President Museveni told him that Dr. Kiyingi had entered a deal with Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) founding Commander Jamil Mukulu Kyagulanyi and he had become one of the funders of the terrorism group.

    Gen. Kayihura also accused Dr. Kiyingi of masterminding the murder of Sheikh Ibrahim Hassan Kirya, Sheikh Mustafah Bahiga and government officials.

    During the whole saga, Gen. Kayihura wrote to the then speaker of parliament Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga asking her to pass over criminal summons to MP Kasozi asking him to appear before Kibuli CID to record a statement on allegation of supporting terrorism and rebel activities in the country.

    Sources claim when summoned to collect his summons, Kasozi cried in Kadaga’s office and pleaded with her not to hand him over to Kayihura’s men.

    He denied being a supporter of Dr. Kiyingi. Kadaga told Kasozi that the only thing she can do for him is to help him get audience with President Museveni which Kasozi welcomed with open hands.

    Kadaga herself drove Kasozi to State House and they met Museveni and he pleaded his innocence. Museveni made a phone call to Gen. Kayihura stopping him from pursuing Kasozi.

    When Dr. Kiyingi received the information that Kasozi had betrayed him, he revealed to his supporters that he had dismissed Kasozi as his director for mobilization under his political party the Uganda Federal Democratic Organisation (UFDO).

    Dr. Kiyingi through political journalists like Siraje Lubwama kept on threatening that he is coming back to contest for president in 2016.

    However, Gen. Kayihura influenced the move to slap criminal charges on him noting that the State was going to arrest him once he steps foot on Ugandan soil.

    Gen. Kayihura even planted spies and commandos to follow Dr. Kiyingi’s movements.

    He survived being arrested in Nairobi Kenya when he came for a high level meeting with his party mobilizers from Uganda. He had to change the venue of the meeting to South Africa.

    During the course of investigating this story, theGrapevine has established that Dr. Kiyingi never talked to Jamil Mukulu even though he sent him a number of requests to meet him so that they discuss plans to overthrow Museveni. However, Mukulu did not trust him since was not a Muslim.

    Sources in intelligence told theGrapevine that because Dr. Kiyingi wanted to meet Mukulu, he decided to start recruiting Muslim sheikhs through his sister-in -law Aisha Nakasibante but before meeting Mukulu, he was arrested in Tanzania and extradite back to Kampala.

    Mukulu is currently detained in Luzira prison while he awaits for his trial on murder, terrorism and treason charges.
