    The leadership of the joint security agencies has come out to express its gratitude to all security personnel, for successfully policing the swearing-in ceremony of the new President of the Republic of Uganda on 12/05/2021.

    There were initial breports of pupported violence from the camp of one of the January Election contestants, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine following claims that Museveni had rigged the election.

    As witnessed across the country however, security was extra alert, with very robust overt and covert presence on foot and motorized patrols, at hotspots and tactical areas countrywide.

    Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga said, “At the end of the day, it enabled us to protect the new President, all visiting heads of State, VIPs, dignitaries and all other invitees. We thank them all for taking time to attend and witness the swearing-in ceremony.”

    “It was an affirmation of our democratic system and a reminder to all Ugandans and in particular the electorate, that it is their voices which count. The joint leadership of the security agencies are pleased with how the ceremony turned out to be one of the safest. All credit goes to the very effective planning out of the security master plan 202,” he added.

    Police has now shifted focus on the swearing-in of parliamentary and local government positions during this week.

    “Even if there are lesser threats at this level, we continue to assess the security posture at tactical and operational level, in anticipation of all forms of threats and vulnerabilities,” Enanga said, adding that all territorial commanders are tasked to ensure all invited persons follow the health, safety and security protocols in place.

    Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja

    President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s advisor on media has pinned Internal Security Organisation (ISO) operatives over their involvement in deadly move to assassinate premier Robinah Musafiri Nabbanja.

    Yesterday, Nabbanja revealed to fellow Members of Parliament from Bunyoro region that her life is in danger after unknown people started sending her threatening messages.

    She disclosed that this week, someone drove from Kampala to Kakumiro district where his brother is a Town Clerk and told him to warn his sister to stop fighting them because they are deadly.

    Nabbanja unveiled that she is very soon going to report the matter to the appointing authority to sanction investigations on who is behind the threats.

    She however maintained that her zeal to fight corruption will not be interrupted by death threats because her goal is to make sure that the local person benefits from quality government services.

    It should be noted that this week, Nabbanja directed Col. Edith Nakalema, the head of State house Anti Corruption Unit, the Inspector General of Government and the Criminal Intelligence Department of Uganda police to investigate the Circumstances under which poor quality blankets were procured and given to people affected by floods in Kasese.

    However, while appearing on Pearl FM radio, Mirundi revealed that there are some ISO operatives behind threats on Nabbanja’s life.

    She revealed that these operatives are working for some people who want to sabotage Nabbanja’s plans in the Prime Minister’s office especially her tough stance on the corrupt since they have been beneficiaries.

    Mirundi opined that these ISO operatives were behind the double payments made to some beneficiaries of government’s Shs100,000 Covid19 relief funds to the vulnerable families.

    He also revealed that over 170,000 telephone numbers which received the Shs. 100,000 Covid-19 relief were fake while others were owned by these ISO operatives.

    Senior Information Minister Dr. Chris Baryomunsi recently revealed that over 6000 families received double payment of Covid-19 relief and government is investigating how and why it happened.

    A number of people who received double payments come out and complained against telecom companies for locking their mobile phones lines because they failed to refund the extra funds.

    How Senior Judge Saved Gen. Lokech From Angry Wounded Gen. Katumba Suspected Attackers Over Torture And Violation Of Their Rights…

    Justice Ssekaana and Maj. Gen. Lokech

    High Court Civil Division senior judge has saved Maj. Gen. Paul Lokech, the Deputy Inspector General of Police from Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala’s angry wounded suspected attackers.

    Hussein Ismail Sserubula, Yusuf Siraji Nyanzi, Muhammad Kagugube, Kamada Walusimbi, Siriman Ayuub Kisambira, Abudlaziz Ramathan Dunku, Habib Ramathan Marjan and Muzaifa Wampa dragged Gen. Lokech and the Attorney General to the High Court seeking compensation in billions of shillings.

    They also asked for a public apology, a Court declaration that they were subjected to torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and their rights were violated.

    The applicants through their lawyer Anthony Wameli insisted that Gen. Lokech should be held personally liable for having individually in association with others violated their rights and they wanted him to be punished by Court.

    The applicants also pleaded to court to issue an order directing the Attorney General on behalf of  government of Uganda to facilitate and pay for their treatment and rehabilitation at the African Center for Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture Victims or any other similar facility.

    They wanted Court to direct that they are unconditionally released from Kitalya prison where they were remanded on charges of murder, attempted murder and terrorism.

    However, Justice Musa Ssekaana, the head of High Court Civil Division disallowed the application for a certificate of agency on grounds that there is no urgency to have this case heard during lockdown.

    Ssekaana also reasoned that the applicant did not present enough proof that the prisons department had failed to handle them in prisons facilities.

    He maintained that there was no urgency in their matter given that there are many people whose rights are violated during the lockdown including bodaboda riders but they haven’t run to court to seek for a certificate of agency to deal with the alleged violators.

    The applicant’s lawyers pleaded with Ssekaana to withdraw their matter instead of dismissing it.

    It was a double loss because before that, some of the applicants had withdrawn their Habeas Corpus application since it was overtaken by events when all of them were produced in court and remanded.

    On the issue of the four suspects who were killed during arrest, the Attorney General through Johnson Natuhwera produced a post-mortem report in court showing that they were killed.

    The deceased are Idris Sserwadda, Mustafah Kawawa, Hussein Lubwama and Juma said.

    Gen. Lokech told the media that the suspects were killed as they tried to escape and fight security.

    Gen. Katumba was attacked by gunmen who killed her daughter Brenda Nantongo Katumba and driver Sgt. Haruna Kayondo.
