Panic In MP Kato Lubwama’s SOLIDA Camp, Bobi Wine’s People Power Finally Get Candidate To Oust Him

L-R: Kato Lubwama, Bobi Wine and Mukasa

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.

M7 Is Using All His Powers To Die In Power, How Do You Arrest Besigye When Full Figure Is Holding A Press Conference In Kisenyi And Usafi? Mao Rallies Ugandans To Boycott The 2021 Elections

Published

on

Democratic party president Norbert Mao has urged Ugandans to boycott the elections in 2021.

While addressing the press today at the DP headquarters at City House along dustar street in Kampala, Mao said that they are not ready to participate in an election that is controlled by Mr. Museveni who is greedy for power.

“I think we should not be part of this forthcoming elections, because even if we participate and win, Museveni will be declared a winner, he is greedy for power and not willing to handover,” Mao said.

He added that, “Mr. Museveni is using all his powers to die while a leader and to stop the opposition from exposing his weaknesses.”

He further condemned the brutality that was used by the police while stopping former Forum For Democratic Change (FDC) president Kizza Besigye from holding a press conference at Namboole National Stadium.

“When I look at the way Col. Kizza Besigye was brutally handled, I think that’s not right because police are there to provide peace but not to torture people,” he added.

He urged the deputy Inspector General of Police ASP Sabiiti Muzeeyi to work for the people of Uganda but not the NRM government since he is paid using tax payers money.

“Muzeeyi should work for us but not NRM government, we are the people who pay him. But how can he order for the arrest of Besigye when Full Figure is at the same time holding a press conference in Kisenyi and Usafi market? Is it because Full Figure is nowadays Museveni’s diehard and Besigye is for opposition?” he asked

“How can journalists be beaten and arrested because of covering Opposition stories? How will we survive in such situations, is there democracy in Uganda really,” Mao wondered?

He urged Ugandans who seek for change and democracy to struggle and use all the relevant means to change Uganda’s leadership.

“Therefore, Ugandans who want change will use all means they know to withdraw Museveni, if it means boycotting the incoming elections let us do it, like the way Congo citizens did to Kabira, they boycotted the elections and Kabira knew the outcomes and therefore handed over the power,” Mao suggested.

He said that Museveni has lowered his level of the presidency to an extent of saluting miner people instead of those who fought with him to rescue Uganda.

“I was surprised to see Mr. Museveni saluting Buchanan, hugging Full Figure and Kusasira, yet there are generals who were dumped without any acknowledgment. Museveni is now gifting Kusasira and Full Figure with cars and money leaving people who fought with him, that shows a clear image of who Museveni is,” Mao said.

However, when asked about DP ‘s next plan on the increasing torture of Ugandans by the police, he said they are going to focus on the Public Order Management Act (POMA) that suffocates freedom of gathering without being disrupted.

9 MUK STUDENTS SUSPENDED, 26 WARNED: M7 Family Have Overseen Corruption For 33 Years, They Can’t Condemn It – Besigye, You Can’t Run A Country With Advisers Like Buchaman – Ssewungu

Published

on

Four-time presidential candidate Rtd. Col. Kizza Besigye has blasted President Museveni and his family that they don’t have credibility to condemn corruption because they have been cited in corrupt cases in united court of justice.

Through his twitter account, Besigye stated that, “Brave! I don’t expect Mr. Museveni and his family to still talk about corruption after the conviction (in the open US Federal court of bribery, Mr. Chiping Ho! It’s the corruption they have overseen for 33 plus that denies young people free quality university education like Museveni himself got!”  Besigye said.

The FDC strongman was responding to a statement issued by the First Lady Janet Museveni who is also the Minister of Education. In her statement yesterday, Maama Janet reasoned that the strike by Makerere University students has been powered by corruption tendencies and fueled by some opposition members.

Mrs. Museveni explained that there are opposition characters who are bribing Makerere students to riot over the  15% tuition increment.

She insisted that the tuition increment was agreed upon by both the guild council and the university management. Police publicist Fred Enanga had earlier told journalists that police had discovered a mobile money shop where opposition agents were withdrawing money from to give to students to riot.

Enanga further said that some of the rioters are not students of Makerere but were transported there just to riot. Besigye also branded Enanga a liar, “one must be totally immune to shame to be a spokeperson of Uganda police force or NRM or Museveni junta! Many more people will increasingly get paid to fight for their rights –get ready” Besigye said.

MP SEWUNGU INSISTS M7 CANNOT SOLVE MAKERERE UNREST WITH ADVISERS LIKE BUCHAMAN

Without mincing his words, the Democratic Party chief whip who also doubles as the Kalungu West Member of Parliament Joseph Ssewungu advised president Museveni that if he wants to end the unrest at Makerere, he must stop getting advisers like newly appointed adviser on Ghetto affairs Mark Bukenya alias Buchaman. MP Ssewungu said that Museveni cannot end unrest in Makerere if is still relying people like Kusasira and Buchman. The legislator was giving his opinion to the media on the continued unrest at Makerere at parliament.

FDC Are Masters Of Violence And War Not Peace – UPC Blasts Nandala/FDC For Calling Them Museveni’s Servants…

Published

on

Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) party spokesperson Michael Osinde Orachi addressing the press today

Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) party spokesperson Michael Osinde Orachi has cleared the air on the recent allegations that their party are servants to President Museveni.

While addressing the press today at UPC headquarters at Uganda House along Jinja Road in Kampala, Osinde said that Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) members are masters in inciting violence instead of promoting peace.

Yesterday, FDC’s General Secretary Nandala  Mafabi  accused DP and UPC of working for Museveni in the Inter Party Organisation for Dialogue (IPOD) with an aim of frustrating FDC.

“I would like to inform Mr. Nandala that UPC is not like FDC which believes that this country’s problems can be solved by war/violence. We believe in a peaceful dialogue that can bring change. That is   why we dialogue with Museveni,” Osinde said.

“UPC party will never work for Museveni but we will be there to advise him where he has gone wrong. If FDC is not ready to sit together with Mr. Museveni in Dialogue, then how will they chair it given that Museveni is part of it?” Osinde wondered.

He further revealed that if FDC does not write a commitment letter to show that they are willing to serve, IPOD office will not be given to them.

“FDC must write a letter showing their commitment to serve the summit, short of that, the office will remain in DP hands. I urge FDC to abandon their defiance approach and follow the principles of IPOD,” he added.

Osinde also concurred with President Museveni’s decision of withdrawing the military from Makerere University. “It is good to withdraw the military because Makerere is not a barracks but a place where students go to study.”

He concluded by arguing the ministry of Education and sports to always respond to the student’s problems swiftly before they resort to striking.
