According to sources very close to him inside his camp, the Usuk County MP in Katakwi district Peter Ogwang believes his biggest political rival the big girl Jessica Alupo was behind the chaos at his Ojuwai rally in Usuk Sub County where angry voters threw stones at him.
Led by William Omeke the Ongongoja Sub County LC3 Chairman, the angry voters mostly the youth overpowered the elite body guards Ogwang has and assaulted his PA Simon Peter Ojaman while putting him on panga point. Many of the locals carried machetes while baying for Ogwang’s blood. They accused Ogwang of being a sycophant peddling life presidency when his voters are choking on poverty and rotten hospitals, bad schools and impassable roads. Majority of the people at the meeting were NRM and they said they will keep attacking Ogwang until he abandons his plans to rape the constitution Article 102(b).
Omeke said Ogwang and others can use their numbers in Parliament to remove age limits but they will make sure Ogwang is uncomfortable for the rest of his life each time he steps foot in Katakwi. The youthful MP was accompanied by Katakwi woman MP Violet Akurut who was whisked off by Ogwang’s heavily armed police and elite security garrison. The voters said they were ready to be shot and thumped like SFC did to MPs but they were not ready to keep quiet when their country’s constitution is being destroyed to favor one man. Ogwang later said to his team as they left the chaos at the venue that this must have been the work of former minister of education the big girl Jessica Alupo. She is the biggest opponent to Violet Akurut and Alupo nowadays fully stays in the village where she is carrying our large scale commercial farming. Ogwang and Akurut think that even though she is the diehard M7 supporter, Alupo benefits from local residents fighting at their rallies because it shows M7 she was the best mobilizer compared to Ogwang and Akurut Adome. Ogwang also sounded like Tamale Mirundi when he told reporters that the people who were throwing stones were working for the opposition especially Mbabazi’s Go Forward group.
Surprisingly Ogwang keeps saying there is no more opposition in Katakwi but on this occasion he is saying these were opposition people yet organizers made sure they invited only NRM supporters hoping they
would eat food, drink soda and get transport refund and then endorse life presidency which didn’t happen. The hungry residents first took the sodas and everything that was there and then showed their MP Ogwang what they are made up of. Ogwang, Akurut and their security forces fled the rural Usuk Sub County and run to find safety in Katakwi town which has more active youths. Our reporter on the ground was left wondering how much hostility Ogwang will face in the town if all that for yesterday was in the village where you would expect to find many supporters of the Magyezi’s motion. Omeke the LC3 chairperson also wondered how deleting Article 102(b) will reduce unemployment and make hospitals better if M7 hasn’t done that in the past 35 years.
You Used Me And Dumped Me – Abiriga Cries To M7
By Jamil Lutakome
Arua Municipality Member of Parliament Ibrahim Abiriga is bitter with president Museveni for jettisoning him after passing the Age Limit bill.
Speaking to NBS, Abiriga revealed that president Museveni broke his heart after he refused to give him the huge sums of money he promised him.
“When I was still an RDC, I meet president Museveni and explained to him how I used my money to solicit support for him. He promised to refund all the money but up to now, he has never given me that money,” Abiriga cried.
He further explained that when he started the Age Limit bill, he again reminded the president of his promise. Museveni assured him that he will pay him after the bill is passed. Abiriga says since the bill was passed, he has tried to reach the president but he never picks his calls.
“I’m excluded in everything in the NRM party, those people who are near the president are telling him lies about me, that’s why he doesn’t pick my calls,” Abiriga grieved.
Abiriga added that he now survives on loans and borrowing to cater for his extended family needs and his electorate. He says people think he got a lot of money from the president to blow the trumpet for the age limit bill which is not the case.
Abiriga however boasted that he is glad that people in Buganda love him and wherever he passes, they sing praises to his name.
Kitata Is Still Our Chairman – Tang Odoi
By Mboowa Nathan
NRM Electoral Commission boss Dr. Tang Odoi has advised Rubaga NRM youths to stay calm and follow the right procedures if they are to impeach their leader Abdallah Kitatta.
Speaking about the fate of Abdallah Kitatta, who is the NRM Chairperson of Rubaga Division, Tang Odoi advised the youths to wait for investigations to be done. “Let them investigate, charge him in court and if he is found guilty, that’s when he can be suspended. Automatically the Secretary General of the party will write to the Chairman Electoral commission to organise fresh elections.”
Tang further cautioned NRM leaders to always serve with integrity of the highest pedigree. Tang Odoi also noted that if Abdallah Kitatta is found guilty, he will also face the disciplinary committee of the party.
Yesterday, NRM youths from Rubaga division gave an ultimatum of three days to their bosses to organise fresh elections in Lubaga after denouncing Abdallah Kitata as their chairman.
M7 Defence Minister Almost Beaten At Parliament
By Stella Mugoya
Museveni’s defence minister Adolf Mwesige has survived the wrath of MPs the parliamentary defence committee.
The fight was sparked off when the deputy chairperson of the committee, Kezakia Mbogo failed to manage the meeting in the accepted manner, after trying to protect the minister who was dodging some questions from committee members.
It all started when MPs Ssekikuubo Theodore, Muwanga Kivumbi and Gilbert Olanya asked the minister to explain why Ugandan troops are still camping at the Congo-Uganda border. The MPs also tasked the defence minister to explain why the army is doing police work and why they are releasing criminals that are arrested by police. The minister refused to reply to the MPs questions which forced the committee chairperson to adjourn the meeting immediately without agreeing with fellow committee members.
This sparked off a fight as MPs blocked the minister from vacating the room before answering their queries. They immediately stood up and locked the exit door shouting and ordering the chairman to call the meeting back to order so that the minister can answer them.
“Tell us, when is he going to answer our questions, if not we shall not allow him out. Let’s go back and sit, call the meeting back to order and let them all sit down. Afande, you are mature enough you can’t just push me. Just go back and sit and let the meeting be adjourned properly,” Ssekikuubo and Olanya geared on while standing at the locked door.
The minister tried to look for a way to escape but the biter MPs could not allow him access to the door. “Are you the sergeant at arms, let them settle first then we shall leave the door,”Ssekikuubo said while fighting fellow MP from Ntoroko, Rwenulikya Ibanda, who was trying to defend the minister.
He added that,” These queries must be answered by UPDF, they must tell us but our chairman is here saying it isn’t of concern. We need to know who ordered the army to cross the borders.”
The bitter MPs criticised their chairman for having a hidden agenda. “Chairman, if you have a hidden agenda in these matters, then we are opposing it,” Ssekikuubo warned.
Muwanga Kivumbi, one of the committee members, expressed his bitterness at fellow committee member Rwenulikya Ibanda for trying to be a Judas. Kivumbi said that it was Ibanda who confessed, while they were compiling the committee questions, that as a boarder MP, he saw Ugandan troops in Congo, but after seeing the minister, he started changing his statements. “He is just hopeless,” Kivumbi blasted Ibanda.
Olanya, a committee member, blasted the acting chairman saying, “We have a duty of protecting our soldiers and our country. I support the calling of a committee meeting to examine the role of the chairperson. Nabakooba had problems of managing this committee, she had challenges and we thought that since you are a senior member you could manage it better.”
Kato Lubwama, who is also a committee member warned, “the biggest problem this committee has is some people who think they are bigger than others, all of us are MPs but it comes to a point when some members don’t want all of us to speak. Yes, you are a chairman but all of us are part of this committee. You must respect us and if we have a mandate to remove him let us do. Go back to school and learn these things.”
Kezakia was acting as the chairperson of the committee since Nabakooba, who is the committee chairperson was not around.
