Security Guard ‘Sacrificed’ At Akamwesi Hostels Tycoon’s Kanyanya Construction Site…

Published

One of Akamwesi's mega hostel's. Inset is Councillor Ramadhan

A security guard has been killed at the construction site of Akamwesi hostel tycoon Fred Kamwesi on Gayaza Road.

On Thursday, construction site workers in Kanyanya were shocked to find one of their friends, a security guard who works as a porter during day and a guard at night to secure the building materials, dead.

It is alleged that he fell from the top floors of the building where he was participating in the roofing process of the building. He fell flat on his back and the steel iron bars, which had been negligently left open, went through his heart and ripped it apart.

The community was left in shock since the deceased was one of the poor young boys from the community who had been working on the site to earn a living.

His strange death and falling caused fellow builders to spread rumors that he might have been a victim of ritual sacrifice. This information spread like bush fire on the village whatsapp groups and in a very short time many people gathered and tried to enter Akamwesi’s site office to lynch the manager.

Councilor Ramadhan Lukwago

There was a lot of chaos as the unemployed youths shouted cursing the Akamwesi tycoon for bringing this risky investment in their area. They even tried to block the road but Councilor Ramadhan Lukwago who represents Kawempe I West quickly arrived at the scene and saved the situation before police came.

Lukwago is an important PA to Kawempe North MP Latif Sebaggala and when the panicking Akamwesi tycoon heard he was around, he sent for him.

It’s alleged that the councilor entered the office and received Ugx10m to calm down the rioters and pay some of the family members of the dead security guard.

The councilor caused more problems for the tycoon because when he came out, he told the rioters that he had been given Ugx1m for the family to go and bury their son.

The rioters refused this saying it was too small. They continued rioting until police came and shot in the air to disperse them.

The residents vowed to fight Akamwesi until he leaves their area because Ugx1m is nothing compared to life that was lost over negligence.

The residents vowed that they won’t elect Ramadan Lukwago again because he is a traitor. Lukwago is a DP member and wants to unseat Kawempe Mayor Emmanuel Serunjogi in 2021.

He is the brother of Shifrah Lukwago the former speaker of KCC. Voters are also bitter with Latif Sebaggala because when his man Ramadhan betrayed them, he didn’t do anything about the life that was lost at the building site.

KCCA Hit By Financial Crisis After UGX2 Billion Mysteriously Disappears Under Kampala Minister Betty Amongi’s Watch Says KCCA Finance Minister…..

Doreen Nyanjura with Minister Amongi (Inset)

Makerere University Councilor who also doubles as the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Minister for Finance and Administration Doreen Nyanjura has disclosed that Covid cash that was diverted to the office of the Minister of Kampala Betty Amongi has disappeared and cannot be accounted for.

In a post on her Facebook page today evening, Nyanjura disclosed that, “The 2 billion shillings COVID19 supplementary fund as allotted to KCCA has run out. 1 billion has been expensed on emergency services by the technical team while the other 1 billion which was diverted to the Kampala Minister’s office has no trace and therefore remains unaccounted for.”

She added, “This is at a time when COVID19 infections have started taking a community infection trend. KCCA is therefore unable to provide the necessary support in form of ambulance services, Personal Protective Equipment, transport and allowances and other necessities for those at the frontline of the fight to medicate patients and curb further spreading of the virus.”

“As we face this crisis of funds, the Minister of Kampala has unilaterally decreed that the entire Political leadership, the Executive and Councillors of KCCA undertake a 14 days self-isolation. This is happening at the backdrop of the demand by the KCCA Executive leadership that the Minister accounts for the 1 billion shillings that was diverted to her,”  she said.

Nyanjura said, “The pretext of this unilateral decree to suspend the elected leadership is that some personnel at KCCA tested positive for COVID19. The said personnel are technical staff and work directly under the Minister of Kampala. These contacts being within her office, we are wondering why it’s not her and her related staffs that are to go into self-isolation.”

“It is clearly impossible for the KCCA leadership to go into isolation as the duty of resource allocation is critical to their responsibility not less in times of crisis like these where need to find resources to continue the fight against the pandemic,” she said.

Nyanjura urged the Minister of Kampala to; Retract the unilateral closure of KCCA and avails the 1 billion shillings that was diverted to her office, whose purpose is unknown, so that KCCA can continue to carry out the necessary interventions in this crisis.

“The KCCA leadership refuses to abandon the residents of Kampala at a time when there is an urgent need to solve the financial crisis at KCCA and find resources to continue the fight against the continued spread of the novel virus,” she said.
