    on

    The Buganda Kingdom clan heads were shocked to learn that Sylivia Nagginda Luswata the Queen mother of Buganda is not among the individuals Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi chose as his next of kin.

    In their planning meeting on the trip to Namibia to meet Kabaka Mutebi, clan heads were advised that before leaving the country, they should first know the people registered as next of kin to Kabaka because they will need their approval to access the king.

    Many rubbished their friend who made the said submissions boasting that with the help of Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo the former Buganda Kingdom minister and also the junior minister in charge of technology and information in President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, they cannot fail to access Kabaka.

    They claimed that Nabbosa is a close friend to Kabaka Mutebi but also a relative and friend to Nagginda who has the final say on accessing her husband.

    The planning meeting was held at Mengo in a place opposite Bulange building the headquarters of Buganda Kingdom. A decision was taken to first consult and confirm that Nagginda is among the next of kin to Kabaka Mutebi.

    However, they were shocked that she is not among them.

    Their investigations established that Kabaka registered his young brother Prince David Kintu Wasajja, Buganda Kingdom Premier Charles Peter Mayiga and his sister Nnaalinya Agnes Nabaloga Lubuga as his next of kin.

    One of the clan heads told theGrapevine that last week when they met President Museveni, he promised to facilitate their travel to Namibia where Kabaka Mutebi is allegedly receiving treatment from but advised them to first agree with his immediate family.

    Sources said that before the end of this week, clan heads are going to meet clan council speaker and also the Kkobe clan head omutaka Ssalongo Augustine Kizito Mutumba on the way forward, and they are proposing to lead a delegation to go and meet Mayiga over the matter.

    Mutumba confirmed to Grapevine that a resolution was passed in their council to send a delegation to Namibia to visit Kabaka so as to check on his health status.

    Another clan head told theGrapevine that President Museveni confirmed that he is ready to help them to talk to Namibian authorities so that they have a save passage there.

    He divulged that the President however insisted that they should first secure the approval from Kabaka’s immediate family members.

    A section of clan heads have started processing their travel documents and are very excited.

    “We were told that even Nagginda or Kabaka’s children have to first seek approval from the next of kin to see him. But, I don’t think Mayiga will allow us to access Kabaka in Namibia,” a clan head said.

    Kabaka Mutebi, members of the royal family and Mengo administration officials missed Nagginda’s book launch at Sheraton hotel in 2022 sending a big statement of the misunderstanding in the palace.

    Since 2019, Kabaka Mutebi has been in and out of hospitals locally and internationally and Mayiga.

    On a related development, Buganda Kingdom chief prosecutor and also the clan head of Empeewo omuttaka Nadduli Kibale Mayiga has threatened to storm Mayiga’s office to get an explanation from him on who is eating gifts donated to Kabaka by his subjects.

    Nadduli explained that he has been receiving a lot of complaints from people that they are collecting gifts and sending them to Bulange but they don’t know who is eating and benefiting from the gifts because Kabaka is abroad receiving medication.

    According to Mubiru Njuuki, a Buganda Kingdom historian, Nadduli culturally is the one responsible for mediating Kabaka when he gets into any misunderstanding with his wives.

    Nadduli made the threatening statement in a meeting with Church of Uganda Bishops led by the Archbishop of the church of Uganda Dr. Stephen Kazimba Mugalu at his home in Wakiso district.

    It has been revealed that several emergency meetings were summoned by people termed as mafias strategizing on their next move after a strange disease attack celebrated 1986 war veteran and also President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s most trusted and beloved brother Gen. Salim Saleh.

    Joseph Tamale Mirundi, a long term friend of Gen. Saleh and also the Senior presidential advisor in charge of the media, confirmed the development.

    “When I saw people I know as mafias fighting to take over power after President Museveni’s government panicked, I got scared and I picked interest to establish what was going on because I know them, they can overthrow the government without our knowledge,” Mirundi said.

    He added that his sources in the corridors of power informed him that they were panicking because they want to use the opportunity of Gen. Saleh’s sickness to steal his money.

    He claimed that in one of the meetings, they were planning on how to access the bag where Saleh kept billions of money in cash.

    Mirundi revealed that with immediate effect, he contacted Gen. Saleh’s assistants to confirm what was told to him and they confirmed that the General is sick.

    “I pray for his quick recovery, you know our people thought that big people like Gen. Saleh I don’t get sick, we also get sick because we are human beings, but my brother Gen Saleh is recovering,” Mirundi said.

    He said that after the Mafia’s failed to steal Gen Saleh’s money, they are now spreading malicious propaganda that he mismanaged the money given to him through the Operation Wealth Creation.

    Kira Municipality legislator Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda noted that Gen. Saleh is the next powerful person in the country after president Museveni and it is the reason why whoever is given a top government job, they first seek appointment with Gen. Saleh to appreciate and confirm that he or she will follow his instructions.

    How Massaging Two Male Legislators At A Go Placed Masaka City MP Kakande’s Marriage On Verge Of Collapse…

    Juliet Kakande Kikomeko

    Even though troubled Masaka city female legislator Juliet Kakande Kikomeko is boasting that she is a happily married woman, Denis Ssekabira the Katikamu North Constituency insists that her marriage is on the verge of collapse.

    During a live TV talk show, Ssekabira revealed that since the day Kakande was captured on camera in the middle of parliamentary proceedings massaging two male legislators, her marriage turned chaotic because her husband started suspecting her of having other men.

    Ssekabira accused Mpindi Bumali one of the male representatives of the people with disabilities in parliament of causing trouble for Kakande adding that he is a man who has no respect for women and always feels happy whenever he sees them crying.

    Kakande was captured on camera massaging Mpindi. She later turned to Kyamuswa county legislator Moses Kabusu who forced Kakande’s hands to his head and was seen feeling the sweetness of the massage to the extent of closing his eyes.

    A bitter Ssekabira exposed Kakande’s secrets when while reacting to Mpindi’s verbal exchange with Mawogola South legislator Gorreth Namugga whom he declared incompetent and not fit to be a Member of Parliament.

    Namugga also responded by declaring Mpindi an idiot who sold his soul to defend corruption yet Ugandans are crying due to the hard economic situation they are going through.

    A bitter Namugga wondered how a well thinking MP like Mpindi can praise former Leader of Opposition in parliament Mathias Mpuuga Nsamba for accepting the Shs500m service award of being a cooperative Leader of Opposition in parliament.

    Mpindi maintained that Mpuuga deserved the money given to him and other three commissioners of parliament; Esther Afoyochan, the Zombo district Woman legislator; Prossy Akampulira Mbabazi, the Rubanda district  Woman legislator; Solomon Silwany the Bukooli Central legislator and in total they shared Shs1.7bn.

    Mpindi was very bitter with fellow legislators who are leading the move of collecting signatures to force speaker Annet Anita Among to call parliament and debate the said scandal claiming that the said legislators and those who signed including Namugga and Ssekabira are exposing their ignorance before their voters.

    He further challenged Ssekabira to also speak about the married woman he snatched from another man insisting that he has a list of women he used.

    Former Kawempe South legislator Mubarak Munyagwa pleaded with the said legislators to calm down because fighting live on a  TV will please President Museveni because he is the one behind the Service award and also the censure motion to divert Ugandans from discussing serious issues in the country.
