There is panic in the camp of incumbent Lubaga South Member of Parliament (MP) Paul Kato Lubwama after a number of SOLIDA members and area councilors fronted People Power diehard to oust him.

On Sunday evening, the Grapevine scribe landed on a group of Lubaga south councilors in a private political meeting at Javine hotel near Pope Paul hotel in Ndeeba, a suburb in Lubaga division, brainstorming on how to put him down.

The Grapevine scribe established that the meeting was political after hearing voices of the members swearing that they are tired of Lubwama’s laziness in the August house. “We have to start looking for a formidable MP now otherwise we shall remain the same if we wait for Byamukama’s electoral Commission program,” one of the SOLIDA members was heard telling other friends in the meeting. One councilor we established as Hajjati Fuge, representing Busega parish in KCCA told friends that their constituency has lost out on many government programs due to lack of a vibrant MP.

She explained to her colleagues that they were expecting the construction and completion of the Nalukoloongo channel this political term of 2016-2021 but this has failed because of the area MP has failed to voice out their problems on the floor of parliament.

Isaac, another councilor told colleagues that they are likely to lose their seats because voters are not happy, the voters blame the councilors for misleading them by recommending Lubwama. In the same meeting, one of the members whom we establish as Julius Katongole, a people power coordinate in Lubaga South revealed to his friends that as people power crusade, they are fronting a one Aloysious Mukasa to oust Lubwama from Lubaga South and they have already started drafting strategies to see that Lubaga South gets someone who will competently represent their interests.

Katongole told the over 30 councilors that what he wants from them is to join hands and liberate Lubaga South by supporting Bobi Wine’s diehard Mukasa.

“In the last general election, like other city constituencies, we voted leaders under the bandwagon effect without verifying them, someone of them told us to send them to parliament so that they can also eat. What do you really expect from such a leader?” Katongole said.  Katongole added that Mukasa, who they want to replace Lubwama, is a well-known businessman in the area who is not looking for a job like other leaders who won in the previous elections.

He added that as People Power Movement in Lubaga South, they are going to start moving from parish to parish endorsing candidates to stand on people power ticket, he warned councilors not to condemn him if the crusade drops them for not fulfilling the pledges they made in the previous term.

Katongole said that in July this year, the Lubaga South People Power wing is going to have a private political meeting with their national president Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, the Kyadondo East MP to discuss how they can politically take over Lubaga South from local level to parliamentary level.

Lubaga South is made of parishes of Najjanakumbi 1, Najjanakumbi 2, Nateete, Ndeeba, Busega, Kabowa, Mutundwe and Lubaga. Efforts to speak to MP Kato Lubwama were futile since he has been not picking our calls since Tuesday.

Abusing The President Is A Sign Of Poor Upbringing – NRM

Published

on

The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party has warned a section of Ugandans who have made it a hobby to abuse the president that doing so is a sign of poor upbringing.

In a post on their website, the NRM said, “Under Section 24 of the Penal Code Act, it is an offense to alarm or annoys or ridicule the President and the maximum punishment for one found guilty of this offense is imprisonment for life.
This provision is valid until such a time as when it is repealed through the widely known lawful channels. The President is the Fountain of honor protected by law. That is why he also enjoys immunity from prosecution.
To abuse him is to abuse the office he holds in trust of the greater citizenry.”

They add, “Doing so (abusing him) is not a political statement or a victory in settling scores; it is a sign of poor upbringing. Parents, please groom your children and show them the way you would like them to take!
Proverbs 22:6 says: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.
Show them good examples, educate them; inculcate in them good cultural practices! Thankfully, the law is clear and will always take its course on defiant ones, here and in the afterlife!”

Nambooze Is Dead Politically, She Is Now Trying To Get Back To The Lime Light By Jumping On Every Thing – Musician Full Figure

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.

MY SON CHAMELEON, Politics Is Not Music: You Deceived Muslims That You Converted To Their Faith, You Have Been Using Dangerous Drugs And Have Failed To Turn Up For Concerts After Being Paid – Actor Ashraf Simwogerere Pens Letter To Son Chameleone

Published

Asalaam alaikum warahmaturahi wabarakatuh.

Letter to my “son”,

JOZE CHAMELEON MAYANJA.

Dear Joze hope this latter finds you in a good shape. We last met sometime back at Fairway hotel. I remember you had been confined in a wheel chair after that accident in Tanzania. Haaaaa that was the time when the law of diminishing returns in entertainment was still very far from acting on you. Reaching you was not easy but you managed to extend a hand to greet me as an elder. I admired and appreciated you for that.

Up to today, I have to confess. Valu valu is my best song even if I don’t understand a single word. You showed the power of relics in that songs. Thanks a lot son.

Having said that, I was very much impressed when you decided to come out openly and fully join politics. As an artiste myself, I will always support a fellow artiste who declares his intention to join politics. Even if politically we may not agree, ideally dad Ashraf will support any artiste being NRM, DP, FDC, PEOPLE POWER, ETC. Artistes who have participated in Politics have given our industry milage, for we were nobodies in this country. If lawyers, doctors, teachers, priests, soldiers, business ppl, agriculturists, etc join politics why not artistes?.

However CHAMELEON, politics is not like music where one time at Africana hotel in a concert you jumped high from the stage and fell into the soft hands of the audience. In politics when you jump high in air, any mistake you do while up there will cause the audience (read supporters) to run away for you to land on the hard surface. Hajj Ssebagala has the best story. Lord mayor is struggling in air to avoid the hard fall.

Secondly, in politics, your history will either run before or after you. Yours is no better. In anyway your history is going to run after (against) you.

The day Chameleone announce that he had become a Muslim

Your historical basket is full of rotten eggs. A good politician will not deny ownership of his rotten past. But he/she will use them to boost his/her support. Read Obama when he was accused of smoking weed. He did it perfectly. Your negative past should not be a reliability but make it an asset to gain votes.

Starting with your nick name; 1.”CHAMELEON”. On many occasions you have acted like that “ka” animal. You are the guy who change any time. In art, many times you have been paid in advance and reluctantly fail to turn up for concerts. 2)’ You deceived Moslems that you converted to their faith, only to chameleon back to your religion the following day. The moslems are already insinuating that Catholic DPs have brought a moslem catholic CHAMELEON, to fight Latif and Erias (Moslems) for mayorship. 3). We all know that at one time my “son” you used dangerous drugs. 4).There is also that story of some man who was killed in your compound under unclear circumstances. 5) Fighting has been part of your celebrity life.

I repeat all this rot shouldn’t threaten you but make it your challenges of life.

Chameleone with DP boss Norbert Mao

Chameleon you have a tendency of talking any how to disgust your listener. Please your status has changed look up for a respected political manager to manage your oratory and movements. And please respect your manager. Otherwise this is not music where you sacked your managers every week.

Desist from being used to fight other people’s wars otherwise your political carrier will be destroyed. For example already ppl are saying that DP is using you to fight the Load mayor. Always use your consciousness.

Most important my “son”, remember you are carrying a big and heavy mantel for artistes, your family and yourself. Your failure will haunt us all. You successfully carried this mantel in music for 15yrs. Will you carry a political one successfully?. The ball is in your hands.

I wish you the best.

Stay good.

Dad Ashraf Simwogerere.
