Stella Nyanzi in court today

There was drama in court today when Makerere University research fellow, Stella Nyanzi was brought to court over cyber offences.

This afternoon in court, the Makerere University Researcher appeared for formal charging on offenses relating to attacking the privacy of President M7 and his late mother, Esteri Kokundeka.

Nyanzi  was brought to court in a salon police car and was led by security personel into court through the rare exit gate.

When the charges were being read to her, Nyanzi tasked the Court clerk to read the charges in her mother tongue (Luganda), she repeatedly  kept on reminding him to mention the exact words she used  to refer to certain body parts  in her native tongue.

Nyanzi was charged with 2 counts of cyber harassment and offensive communication. Prosecution said that she had an intention of disturbing the peace of President Museveni and posted obscene messages on her official Facebook page while attacking the privacy of the  President and that of his late mother, Esteri Kokundeka.

Prosecution states that Nyanzi committed the offenses on the 16th September 2018 through an ironic birthday congratulatory message she   dedicated to the president. She was however not allowed to plead to the charges because grade one magistrate Esther Nahilya had no powers  to entertain her charges .

Magistrate Nahilya remanded Nyanzi to Luzira prison until Friday this week when she will be brought back before  trial magistrate Gladys Kamasanyu for purposes of taking plea.

Nyanzi was arrested on Friday Last week from Wandegeya police station where she had gone to seek permission from security to organise a peaceful demonstration against Makerere University’s refusal to re-instate her as a researcher following a 2 year suspension due to alleged misconduct .

This is not the first time Dr. Stellah Nyanzi is charged before court on offenses relating to attacking the person and privacy of President Museveni .

It’s should be remembered that in 2016 , she was charged before Buganda Road court on similar offenses and remanded for a month at Luzira prison but was  cautioned not to post  further offensive messages to the first family until the final disposal of the case.

However, this case has since been stayed awaiting  the Constitutional Court to  determine a Petition she filed challenging the compulsory subjecting of all  criminal suspects to a mental examination procedure before trial.

In a related development, Dr. Nyanzi has also dragged Makerere University to High Court Civil division for refusing to re-in state and promote her as a senior researcher.

In her plaint drawn by her lawyers of Centre for Legal Aid, Nyanzi said that on two occasions, the University’s staff tribunal has lifted her suspension and ordered that she be re-instated, promoted and paid her accumulated emoluments; something she claims the University has ignored .

Nyanzi says she needs her job back because she has to take care of her three kids and also pay her legal representatives.

Published

on

Security has arrested socialite Isaac Nduhukire Nasser alias Don Nasser Izo for allegedly conning over 30 billion shillings from different business people.

Don Nasser was picked hiding in ceiling by the time of his arrest. It is alleged that he conned over $10m this year from different people.

Among them included a one Johnny Hill, an American who says he sealed a deal with Nasser that required him to supply 75kg of raw gold at $1.5m (approximately UGX 5.5Billion). Nasser disappeared with the money which forced Hill to hire Interpol to look for him.

“I came to Kampala on February 19 with Massy Mastula, my girlfriend and met Don Izo (Nasser) who told me that he had a connection with gold mines, we talked about it and became partners in business. Nasser told me that the suppliers had given him 72Kgs of gold to sell at market price..Nasser told me that taxes and workers had to be paid, taxes alone were 525,000 dollars. I went to my bank account, messed up my credit card, took a personal loan and sent money through Western Union and I gave him $280,000 cash money,” Hill said.

Hill also supplied copies as evidence to show how transferred money to Don Izo. He added that he has opened up a case of fraud against him.

Hill becomes the third victim to conned by Nasser and joins a Dubai businesswoman who cried foul after losing over $5.5M (nearly 18.8 Billion Uganda Shillings) in a similar scam orchestrated by the self-proclaimed Don and another Ugandan lady who also lost USD 360,000 (nearly 1.3 Billion Uganda Shillings).

Don Nasser is known in town for splashing money and driving expensive rides. He dated tycoon Mutaasa Kaferro’s daughter, a one Mastulla Kafeero and the two departed bitterly due to alleged infidelity and alcoholism from the Mastulla.

Jinja Road Police has arrested 44-year-old British Nigerian Charles Nwabuikwu Lambert for the second time in a period of four months on allegations of fleecing money from unsuspecting Ugandans in a grand scam.

Charles Nwabuikwu Lambert, the director of Development Channel, was first arrested on 23rd August 2018 by Kira Road Police after angry employees from various transport companies tried to set ablaze one of the premises owned by Development Channel and also trying to lynch over their unpaid arrears.

Richard Kimuli Ssenoga the head of transporters told police that, Development Channel had since February 2018 hired a total of 63 PRADO SUVs to ferry various dignitaries around different parts of Uganda promising the owners daily income of 150000/=.

Lambart sweating like a he goat

Upon his first arrest, Mr. Lambert paid a sum of 17 million and agreed to pay the remaining balance in a period of 2 months which he failed to adhere to hence accumulating to 213 million Uganda shillings as of today 20th November 2018.

His yesterday evening was sparked off as a result of a number of unfruitful excuses fed to the angry creditors by the company director hence a consequent response by Jinja Road Police to solve the concern.

Development Channel has been running a complex scheme under the guise of a poverty alleviation company aimed at empowering Africans with a lifetime payment in a ruse designed to defraud victims located throughout Uganda.

Shock befell the aggrieved clients when they found out that the Bukoto based company Offices had been closed down and all properties sold out. Its indeed true that thousands of Ugandan citizens had been duped into investing in this scam business.

Sharon Nakkazi, a 24-year-old marketeer told police that she paid a sum of 270$ for a No Drop Out tablet in January 2018 and was promised a guaranteed monthly payment of US$ 100 for the rest of her life. However, she had taken (10) months without receiving the promised dividends on her account, she decided to open up a case of obtaining money by false pretenses on SD REF 64/21/09/2018.

In a verbal statement, Mr. Nwabuikwuhe stated that his company had been paying off money to old members through the cash injected by new recruits.

Over 200 complainants were registered yesterday at different police stations which include Jinja Road Police, Kira Road Police, Katwe Police Station and CPS Kampala requesting for police intervention in the process of recovering their lost monies and proper justice against the people that take advantage of the poverty-stricken citizens.

A GEF 07/2018 was opened up at Jinja Road Police Station to investigate the claims by various complainants. This brings it to two general inquiry files opened up against the suspect in a period of four months. Another GEF 30/2018 is still under inquiry at Kira Road Division and other isolated cases at various police stations in Kampala Metropolitan Area.

Nwabuikwu is currently detained at Jinja Road Police Station.
