Published

on

Musician Nakitto Jennifer Nakanguubi alias Jennifer Full Figure has blasted Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke for attacking musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleon.

During a meeting held at City Hall in Kampala yesterday where the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago was meeting vendors and hawkers, Nambooze cautioned the people of Kampala to vote responsibly come 2021 especially on the position of the Lord Mayor that already has a number of candidates vying for it. These include: the incumbent  Erias Lukwago, Kawempe South Legislator Hajji Latif Ssebagala Sengendo, NRM’s Godfrey Nyakana, former Kampala Security minister Gen. Henry Tumukunde and Musician Jose Chameleon .

“Vote wisely when that time comes, know the person who has been there for you, who is still there for you and who will be there for you. Don’t just vote anyhow. Let everyone do what they know best , musicians should concentrate on music as well the politicians play our part. You know where Lukwago has brought you from and how he has fought for you, let no one deceive you,” Nambooze rallied the vendors and hawkers at City Hall.

These remarks left the outspoken musician Full Figure, who is a Chameleone sympathiser unhappy, she decided to fire at Nambooze calling her political future dead.

“Nambooze you are dead, you are just looking for a way out. Stop criticising our own. Let the people decide on who they want to put in power. Maybe you just want to be in the news but I think Lukwago has served enough and it’s time for the young blood to take over,” Full figure said.

Full Figure also reminded the Mukono legislator that all opposition leaders are in the same struggle and there is no need to fight each other because they have the same enemy.

When the Grapevine contacted Betty Nambooze, she declined to respond to Full Figure’s remarks saying that she is looking for cheap popularity since she is already a failure musically.

Early this year, Full Figure announced her intention to unseat the Kampala woman Member of Parliament Nabilah Nagayi Sempala.

Published

on

On his way to work today, His Excellency, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president of Uganda for the very first time visited the site of the recently demolished St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba.
The President expressed his sorrow triggered by the ugly incident, and gave the church assurances that whoever is responsible will pay a hefty price.
Museveni stressed that the resolution to order the demolition of a church was extreme, he suggested that dialogue amongst the stakeholders would have been most appropriate to resolve the matter, however much the church could have been caught on the wrong side of the law.
“Judges should have limits and understand public interest. Demolishing a church is a curse,” the president said, warning the general public against believing any false reports that the government is responsible for demolishing the said church.
Museveni revealed that he will very soon invite the Namirembe Diocese Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, and engage with all parties involved in this conflict to find a lasting solution.
He gave assurance that the Church will retain the disputed land at all costs, and an even better church shall be erected in the same place, publicly declaring that he has now personally involved himself in the bitter land wrangle.

Our Mass Defection Was A Collective Decision – MP Nambooze…

Published

on

Democratic Party (DP) president, Norbert Mao has assured party members that they are still standing strong even after many of their senior members defected to Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine’s National Unity Party (NUP).

The studious politician likened DP’s current situation to a farmer who loses his crops, but remains with the seeds, hinting on replanting.

While appearing on the Frontline, a political talk show on NBS, Mao said the DP will utilise this uncertainty that has befallen their party to not only heal, but also renew and rebuild their DP house.

“DP will have to look inside itself and look for the reason as to why it has been resilient for 65 years. It is time for strategic reorientation, to look at our strengths rather than our weaknesses,” Mao said, emphasizing that they (DP) are so capable of rebuilding the party.

Mao stressed that trying times like now call for calmness, and that DP will now focus on its strengths and what has remained rather than lament on its weaknesses.

The lawyer also admitted that the MPs who defected might leave political wounds to the party, but added that they will heal and so will DP.

“They might leave scars, but they eventually heal. And gaps can always be filled. Every organization must have an inbuilt capacity to heal and renew itself.

Some people have lost both hands, but life doesn’t end there. Infact, you can find your purpose from there,” Mao said.

Betty Nambooze, one of the former key members who defected to NUP insinuated that they conveniently made the healthiest decision for them and their former party where they have been the trouble causers, adding that the transfer will now also give them an opportunity to go where they shall be utilized, because they are appreciated.

The Mukono Municipality lawmaker also revealed that their resolution to massively withdraw from DP to NUP was more collective than personal.

The outspoken journalist cum politician revealed that she could not follow her close colleague Erias Lukwago the Kampala Lord Mayor to Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) because she has never fancied being a member of the Najjanankumbi based party.

She however said that she will support Lukwago for the Kampala mayoral seat, and not NUP’s Joseph Mayanja aka Chameleon.
