    Payback Time As Namere Goes Native On Redpepper



    By Justine Namere

    In its Years of existence, Red Pepper created many enemies including top TV personality Justine Namere who has decided to vent her anger and dance on the proverbial grave of its directors who are right now languishing in Luzira Prison. Below is Namere’s rant that she posted on her social media page;


    INTRODUCTORY PART; It doesn’t surprise me that many people are cerebrating Redpepper’s debacle! If there’s a group of people that has caused pain and suffering to this country, it is that group of goons called Redpepper owners that the country is now taking a break from as they are kept away in Nalufenya. You have defamed people, you have destroyed people’s careers and relationships, you have shattered dreams, you have undressed mothers, disabled fathers, you have crushed role models, belittled Kings and Queens, you have accused men of God falsely, you have told material falsehoods about people you have indeed made money out of sowing in the Devil’s Gardens.

    DEAR FELLOW UGANDANS PLEASE GIVE THESE DETAILS JUST A LITTLE OF YOUR TIME; I got the chance to witness part of Eddy Kenzo’s background, at some point he was helped by my Father; I remember him telling my Dad when he gave him a good pair of sneakers “Mzee sambalanga Ku ngatto nnungi, nyinza obutasobola kutambula” to mean “Dad I don’t think I will be able to walk because I have never worn nice shoes”. My Dad struggled to smiled, he was clearly so touched. Kenzo had come to play for my Mzee’s club, Masaka LC in exchange for school fees. I later got to learn that he used the money to educate his little siblings and didn’t go to school. He went through the worst hustle and made it to the cream de’ La cream of African Musicians. He has big awards to his name, made the hit Ghetto kids, has clubs in countries like Italy, Malawi, France etc named after him, he’s a disciplined young man; has theme night performances all over the world, he is an inspiration to the kid with a poor background and what does Redpepper and their Kamunye counterpart do? Call him a murderer, a sorcerer, a gay prostitute, illuminati, local, uneducated, all sorts of trash; I remember how Redpepper climbed a whole Speaker of Parliament, she won a 150m defamation case against them in 2016; they climbed a whole former Chief Justice Wako Wambuzi and when he took them to court, they bragantly said for them they’re connected and untouchable, Court ordered them to pay him 500m; oba what are untouchable people doing in Nalufenya?!

    When they started on Tooro kingdom, they forged up all sorts of lies about the King , the Princess, Queen Mother and Tooro officials. It became too much that at some point Tooro Kingdom dragged them to Court and called for a boycott of their “newspaper”; I remember when Redpepper accused the Vision Group CEO Robert Kabushenga of having evicted his mother from her house and her land and that he had been arrested for it and was in jail and could be arraigned in court the next Monday but the man was at Vision Group doing his work; It was a topic of talk for all employees of Vision Group as people wondered why people from the same journalism fraternity would mudsling a whole CEO of the biggest media company moreover telling broad day lies and today the same people apparently want the journalist fraternity to push for their freedom; no Redpepper no one will advocate for you; you cannot conveniently remember to pull the ” fraternity” card now; when you were harassing  Sarah Kagingo and scorning her over the torture she had gone through plus other TV and Radio personalities who you accuse of material falsehoods how come you don’t remember that they’re your colleagues?!

    When Sanyu Robinah Mweruka was going through her rough times, what didn’t you yap you goons?! I once read one of your dailies where you accused Sheila Gashumba of being a prostitute, a wannabe; she was only 17years old then; I kept that newspaper at my place; a young girl trying to be somewhere in life, inspiring teenagers to value work and old for nothing men haranguing her trying to put her down; didn’t you know then that she was your media colleague?! Now you magically remember to cry to your colleagues?! You like writing about about fellow men mbu they are cheats but who doesn’t know how much of womanizers you are in this town and when are you writing about yourselves?! You goons! Juliana Kanyomozi was a woman who everyone knew never responded to her attackers; you always defamed her and the woman kept quiet but when you for over a month wrote shit about her and her dead son, Juliana rose up, Juliana roared, she broke down; I looked at parents torturing a woman who has lost her only child, and you call that press freedom?! Press freedom to attack, insult, demean, character assassinate and forge things about people?! I saw you pretending to celebrate Hon Bobi Wine, the same newspaper that falsely accused him for apparently stealing cars from Red Cross society, siring children out of marriage, among other crap. Now what if your accusations had terribly altered his ego and he decided to say move out of the country, would he be the MP you were pretending to celebrate so much you hypocrites?! You get people’s mothers and write about their private parts, their personal problems, their body shapes! mbu “Dry pussied Zari”…Karistas has….who and who….Jesus! OK if it’s about press freedom you also write about your wives, mothers and daughters’ private parts so we understand you practice press freedom without fear or favour.

    I remember when you defamed my Fiance’ mbu for dating me, what was wrong with my Fiance’ dating me?! It’s just because one of you had vibed me while I was still at NTV and I said no! You forged up shit about my Fiancé just because that gu funny big faced guy, one of you vibed me and I said a big no! I was the public figure here, why didn’t you attack me instead of my man?! Am still with him now die! I still have the evidence of your silly messages, open your mouth and I release! You redpepper persistently for two years told lies about me, demeaned me, insulted me and did everything to put me down but me am rock and metal! When I resigned my job at Minibuzz because I was pregnant with my first born and my health wasn’t well, I couldn’t keep up with waking up so early and traveling so much as was required at Minibuzz, you fools lied to people that I had been fired! You had already told the same lie when I resigned from NTV. Yet Minibuzz threw me a good bye party, Minibuzz threw me their own baby shower, contributed officially to my Kukyala, released a press statement thanking me for my work and really kept a good relationship with me. Those Bazungus felt so bad when you misrepsented my departure from Minibuzz, they even advised me to go legal because they had seen your consistent deliberate effort to defame me! And it’s after I went legal that you gave my name and my family a break.

    But a thief has 39 days you devils, you will see the anger of God some day.  I know a friend of mine who paid you over 20 million to prevent you from writing stories about her, you took the money and you still wrote the stories! So cheap! You extorted 10 million out of Maama Fiina, woman who has helped many Ugandans but you still published her nudity and forged up stories about her yet you ate her money! An uneducated woman who has struggled to be where she is and has even helped many. You the educated ones is that best you would do?! I will pray I will fast, I will call God and one day all the innocent people you have wronged will get justice! You once extorted 50 million out of some guy who was working for UN and you still went on to write a bad story on him that led to the loss of his job, the guy was taking care of his family alone, educating all his siblings; that Guy’s mother cursed you and I hear in that very year one of you who led that particular extortion mission gave birth to a blind child, your child after that one is also blind, you have tried all hospitals in vain. I feel bad for the innocent angels but you their father could have caused them this suffering! May God have mercy on them and heal them and punish you instead! So now that you care about your jobs and your families as you cried to court why don’t you think about other people’s jobs and families as you do your crap?! And what’s most annoying is you don’t pay your workers you selfish goons. You make money out of people’s tears and you cannot even share it with the people that donkey for you?! And now your very few sympathizers are yapping mbu “do you know the livelihoods affected by your closure and jailing”… Lol do you know how much Redpepper employees and your former employees are celebrating your beleaguered times?! Go to the few pages that struggled to put in a word for you….your workers came and assured them that you were lying mbu their livelihoods are affected because you operate a brief case company where all the money you make a day you share immediately. Looks like more dogs are out on you. They are looking for lawyers to take you on for none payment of their salaries and the girls you sexually harass in exchange for job security. Organizations like The American Press Association and the Ethical Journalism Network, among others all agree that the first obligation that journalists have is ” the truth”; the first loyalty is “to citizens” and the first discipline is verification! Do everything to hear from all sides. I don’t sympathize with you, great majority of Ugandans don’t, there will be no hash tag for your release or mercy but the opposite starting here #letredpeppergoonspay. Even if you get out of the physical prison, you have tested social validation where Ugandans have showed you hate, activists are quiet and ordinary Ugandans are indifferent, they don’t wanna know, not interested! You now know that you are cursed! Save your children and grandchildren from the curses that millions have sent to you, when come out of your nalufenyas; JUST LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE! The Sun in the UK is also a tabloid newspaper but they will only write a scandal that they have thoroughly researched. Remember the “WaterGate scandal” where journalists unearthed a scandal that was of such national importance that it led to President of USA resigning! You should investigate scandals that will inform policy; for example these brothels in town with teenagers; body organ stealing where men take girls to Dubhai under the pretext of “love”, etc.

    And you dare climb me because I have spoken out on you, my legal engines are raving to go! I will give you a defamation trial you will never forget you devils! Fellow Ugandans, human rights activists, Lawyers, Parents, Leaders let’s rise up against the national bullies called redpepper before our younger generations and our children suffer as well. Journalism fraternity get up and denounce these black mailers, crooks and liars, promote professional journalism in Uganda! I hope no sponsor or brand ever associates with you bullies! I plan to petition the Speaker of Parliament to caution Government on why they have been looking on as red pepper damages society to the point of forging very serious allegations that could compromise national security and the economy; and to also denounce them because they have been abusing human rights claiming to be so connected in the powers that be!

    Leaders Of Traders Panicking After M7 Directs Investigation Over Allegations Of An Invisible Foreign Hand Fueling Their Strikes To Sabotage Economy…



    L-R: Some of the leaders of traders: Godfrey Katongole, David Kabanda and Thadeus Musoke

    Kampala Metropolitan Senior Minister Hajjat Minsa Kabanda has exclusively confirmed to theGrapevine that president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has directed the country’s intelligence organs and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to investigate the alleged invisible hand behind traders’ leadership.

    She explained that preliminary investigations have established that some leaders of traders who are advocating for endless strikes are biased in their decisions because there is an invisible hand pushing them with an agenda of sabotaging the country’s economy and creating an ungovernable situation.

    “We know whatever they are planning. Our people are on ground, so they should stand warned,” Kabanda said.

    She revealed that President Museveni was shocked to establish that in Kampala city alone, traders have more than 30 associations and each one of them has command.

    This has created suspicion and the need for an investigation to establish their true motives.

    The development comes at a time when traders are threatening to go into a two months strike without opening their shops in the city center if president Museveni doesn’t address their demands including the banning of the Electronic Receipting and Invoicing System (EFRIS).

    On 7th May 2024, Museveni directed Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) to sit down with leaders of traders and sort out their differences.

    The President guided that once these leaders and URA agree, they should make a joint report which they should read to him and other traders on 20th of June 2024 at Kololo independence grounds.

    However, before that meeting, Minister Kabanda has disclosed that Museveni is set to meet leaders of traders in the State House to have some issues sorted out noting that government is doing everything in its power to make sure that what happened on 7th May 2024 never happens again.

    She explained that it was bad for traders to shout at the President and embarrass senior government officials to the extent of accusing some of corruption insisting that traders’ behavior sent a warning signal to government that there must be an invisible hand influencing and facilitating them.

    theGrapevine has established that the leadership of Kampala City Traders Association(KACITA) led by Thadeus Musoke Nagenda, Federation of Uganda Traders Association(FUTA), Katukazane Shoe Dealers, Kampala Arcaders Advocacy Forum, United Arcarders Traders Enterprenuers Association,  Uganda Needy and Squatters Association have resolved to join hands and strategise on how to come up with a common voice before the President.

    Highly placed sources in intelligence have revealed to theGrapevine that all eyes are on David Kabanda who is being investigated for working for some opposition bigwigs who promised him support in the coming elections.

    Sources said that Kabanda wants to become the city councilor on Lord Mayor Ssalongo Erias Lukwago’s council.

    However, veteran journalist and the Senior presidential advisor on media Joseph Tamale Mirundi advised Museveni not to take lightly statements made in the United Kingdom’s House of Lords that King Charles’s leadership should influence regime change in Uganda.

    He explained that the western powers are going to use all the available means to sabotage Museveni’s leadership insisting that there is invisible hand in traders’ frequent strikes.

    But a section of KACITA leadership told theGrapevine that there are people in President Museveni’s government who are facilitating the creation of endless traders associations with the aim of benefiting from them and fighting the unity among traders.

    Bedridden Mukono Municipality mayor Erisa Mukasa Nkoyoyo. Inset is the area MP Betty Nambooze

    Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze Bakireke has confirmed that the Municipality’s mayor Erisa Mukasa Nkoyoyo has been admitted to Mulago Specialised Hospital.

    Nambooze explained that last week, she went to hospital to check on him and discovered that his health condition was worsening.

    She said that Nkoyoyo needs very expensive medicine which he has to buy from one of the big pharmacies near the hospital because inside the hospital the medicine is not there.

    She added that because of the expensive medicine, Nkoyoyo is buying it in piecemeal which places his life in more danger.

    She disclosed that the Municipality has no money for his treatment.

    Few months back, theGrapevine reported how Mukono Municipality town clerk Majeran Luboyera and other technocrats rushed Nkoyoyo to Butabika mental hospital but he was later discharged.

    Friends and family members cited witchcraft in Nkoyoyo’s sickness claiming that his political competitors who want his office come 2026 are the ones who want him dead.

    Luboyera confirmed that Nkoyoyo’s absence has created a leadership crisis in the Municipality because currently, it is like the Municipality has no mayor.

    Since the day Nkoyoyo decided to attend the local government retreat at Kyankwanzi leadership training, National Unity Platform principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) him a betrayer.

    The party leadership stopped Nkoyoyo from attending the said retreat but he defied them and attended.

    Nkoyoyo later explained that his decision was based on his hunger to develop the Municipality and they could not achieve the development they wanted without working together with the ruling party.

    RDC Mbabazi, Sseninde In Secret Tug Of War Over NRM Ticket For Wakiso District Woman Legislator…



    Rosemary Nansubuga Sseninde (R) and Justine Mbabazi (L)

    The mighty Grapevine can exclusively reveal that Rosemary Nansubuga Sseninde and Justine Mbabazi are in a secret fight over the National Resistance Movement (NRM) ticket for Wakiso District Woman Member of Parliament.

    In the 2021 parliamentary election, Sseninde was defeated little known Betty Naluyima who held the National Unity Platform (NUP) ticket.

    After the defeat, President Museveni dropped her as the junior Minister for Education.

    However, because of the good relationship Sseninde has with the first lady maama Janet Kataha Museveni, she was appointed as a Director at NRM Secretariat in charge of mobilization.

    When theGrapevine asked her whether she is coming back in elective politics, she only responded with “don’t wake them up”.

    We have established that she is making clandestine mobilization to contest for the same seat come 2026.

    But political observers in Wakiso told theGrapevine that Sseninde is going to find a hard task to secure the NRM ticket because Mbabazi is also interested in the same ticket and she is also doing clandestine mobilization.

    “Mbabazi is on the ground, she always stands with people when it comes to the situation of challenges, especially on the land issues. Minister Sam Mayanja has also helped her to popularize herself because whenever he goes for a land matter, he has to go with her and praise her before the public as a very hard working lady and an NRM cadre,” one of the political observers said.

    However, Sseninde is also not sleeping. She is using her position NRM director Mobilisation to hit two birds with one stone.

    She is popularizing President Museveni’s achievements across the whole country and at the same time doing ground mobilization among the locals in Wakiso district.

    Others interested in the seat are Rose Kirabira, Sylivia Namutyaba, Naluyimba is also coming back among others.
