City socialite Sheila Gashumba has once again differed from her dad.
Through her Twitter page, Sheilah refuted claims that she has intentions to lead this country, a wish her dad held and once boasted about on one of the national TVs.

This was after one of her fans attacked her saying, “so @Sheila Gashumba , your father wants you to lead this country , but for you ,you are dancing obubadi , moreover wearing snake prints . Tell me , aren’t you a bad child???”
Sheila replied, “lol l don’t remember ever wanting to lead a country in my life . I never do what anyone wants me to do , I only do WHAT I WANT to do !! And if l’m a bad child at least the burden isn’t yours right !! Stay in your lane.”

Sheila’s father Frank Gashumba recently told NTV that, “we are grooming Sheila with her friends to lead this country. Don’t be surprised in future if you see Sheila on TV leading a Ugandan delegation to Germany or when she’s the Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority or the president of this country. The whole village will say that’s our daughter,” Gashumba, who recently is not on good talking terms with his daughter boasted.

UNTOLD STORY: How Chief Justice’s Illness Delayed Age Limit Judgement, Appellant Mabirizi Threatens To Petition International Courts

Published

on

Sources from the corridors of the Kololo based Supreme court have told the Grapevine that chief justice Bart Katureebe’s illness has influenced the delay of delivering the controversial age limit judgement.

The Grapevine has credibly learnt that two weeks back, justice Arach Amoko, Eldard Mwangusya, Opio Aweri, Lilian Tebatemwa, Paul Mugamba, Jotham Tumwesigye and the Chief Justice, who heads the panel completed their judgement draft and decided on the final factors to be considered in their judgement.

Immediately after the meeting at the supreme court, justice Katureebe developed deadly pain in his hips and arm.

The source revealed that Katureebe was surely in pain and he couldn’t move which sent the judiciary in panic. The decision was taken that the head of the judiciary be flown to South Africa for further medical attention. In South Africa, Katureebe had minor surgery and he was told to rest for a week in Zambia where some of his relatives stay.

Solomon Muyita, the senior Communication officer to judiciary confirmed that Katureebe was unwell two weeks back and had a successfully minor operation. Muyita said that the CJ come back into the country and immediately reported to his office.

On Tuesday, there was a crisis meeting chaired by Katureebe at the Supreme Court to strategise on how they can deliver the age limit judgement because they are running out of time.

Katureebe and team were supposed to deliver their judgement in 60 days after the final submissions of both parties. It is now 75 days since Attorney General William Byaruhanga, his deputy Mwesigwa Rukutana, lawyers Erias Lukwago, Male Mabirizi and others submitted their final arguments on the lifting of age limit for presidential aspirants from 75 years, it’s now open.

In the supreme court meeting, Katureebe admitted that his illness is a big factor which led to the delay of the judgement. He asked his learned judges to bear with him and spend some sleepless night to make sure that they write the judgement and finish it in two weeks’ time. From Tuesday, every morning and evening, the seven justices must have a meeting to compare notes.

MABIRIZI THREATENS TO PETITION INTERNATIONAL COURTS

Maverick lawyer Male Mabirizi, one of the appellants in the age limit case has threatened to petition the international courts over the supreme court’s failure to deliver their judgement in the stipulated time. In his letter, Mabirizi wants a satisfactory explanation from the panel why they have failed to deliver the judgement on time.

The lawyer who doesn’t have a practicing license threatened to petition the international courts of justice, the East African Court and African court over the failure by the supreme court of Uganda to deliver the judgement in the stipulated time. It should be remembered that in his final remarks, Katureebe assured Ugandans that they will deliver their judgement in time adding that if they don’t deliver their judgement in time, Mabirizi can drag them to international court.

M7 Finally Calls Bamugemereire On Phone Over Attorney General Rukutana’s Abuses, Orders Her To Recall Him For Questioning, Issues Arrest Warrant To Rukutana’s Henchman

Published

on

Credible Sources in the Commission of Inquiry into land matters have told the Grapevine that the Commission’s chairperson justice Catherine Bamugemereire finally talked to president Yoweri Museveni the appointing Authority.

“She has been talking to the president, no one can interrupt the chair’s attention in the middle of the hearing apart from the president.  From yesterday, the judge has been waiting for the president’s call. She has many matters to report to him,” our source revealed. He said that Molly Kamukama, the Private Secretary to the president reported to the judge that the president received her letter where she asked the president for guidance after clashing with Attorney General Mwesigwa  Rukutana, who was dismissed and discharged from the commission’s record. Kamukama told the judge that the president wanted to talk to her on phone.

On Thursday, when the commission was handling the Kamwonkya land scandal, the judge told the public and the commission’s Assistant lead Counsel Andrew Odit that she was expecting a very important call from a very important person in the country within ten minutes. She told him to keep it in his mind. Within eight minutes after Bamugemereire’s pronouncement, her phone rang. She immediately adjourned the hearing and moved out at a very high speed. After 30 minutes, Odit told the public that the hearing was adjourned to Monday. Our source revealed to us that the judge and the president talked about a mountain of issues including giving her new instructions on the Mutungo land saga. We were told that some of the instruction given to Bamugemereire include summoning Rukutana back to the Commission to testify.

Bamugemereire told the president that Rukutana intentionally disrespected the commission and provoked them to avoid questions fired at him by Ebert Byenkya the Commission’s lead Counsel concerning his legal opinion concerning the payment of shs26bn to city businessman Dr Muhammad Kasasa on Mutungo Land.

Bamugemereire reported to the president that the commission has been investigating the manner in which the government acquired the 640 acres of land on Kyadondo Block 237 plot 56,49 and 27 measuring. Bamugemereire explained to the president that in 2009, government fully paid shs2.4bn to Kasasa but the commission wanted to get his legal opinion on another shs26bn payment to Kasasa.

BAMUGEMEREIRE ISSUES ARRESTING WARRANT AGAINST RUKUTANA’S HENCHMAN 

Earlier, the judge issued an arresting warrant against Sabastian Ruta Ngambwa the alleged henchman to Mwesigwa Rukutana. Odit reported to the judge that Ruta Ngambwa, a director with Prime Real Estate Properties limited has jumped three witness’s summonses where he is supposed to submit to the commission all the documents that lists the names of tenants, he claims to have paid during the evictions in Bukusukuma sub county Nasana municipality. “My lord, this is now the third time Mr. Ruta Ngambwa is refusing to honor the commission’s summons. My lord does hereby issue a warrant of arrest against Mr. Ruta Ngambwa,” Odit prayed. Bamugemereire agreed with Odit and issued the arresting warrant against Ruta Ngambwa. The judge ordered police to arrest Ruta.

“This is a warrant of arrest, under section 9 of the commission of inquiries act, any and every police officer to arrest Ruta who was supposed to provide documents to the commission,” the judge ordered. Ruta Ngambwa is alleged to have been used by Attorney General to grab over 630 acres of land in Buso, Buwaga, Makenke in Nansana municipality, Wakiso district. Ruta is also accused by the family of late Joseph Katerega for grabbing their 235 acres of land in Buwaga.

Rwanda, Uganda Saga Deepens:  Security Beefed Up, Buses Carrying Rwanda Nationals To Uganda Are Now Being Fined

Published

on

Besides the diplomatic means that are being pursued between Rwanda and Uganda diplomats, to find a better way of easing the tension between the two states, news coming from Katuna Uganda border indicates that the situation is still tense.

A source at Katuna Boarder has told this website that right now once a bus is caught trying to sneak Rwandans out of the country, they are fined. However, busses carrying Ugandans are allowed to leave Rwanda.

“Here at boarder, security and RRA officials are seriously fining buses carrying Rwanda nationals to Uganda at a tune of Shs18 million,”‘ a source told this website on phone call. We have also learnt that Rwanda nationals near the border are not allowed to cross at Katuna to buy food or water

SECURITY TIGHTENED AT BOARDER POINTS

We have also learnt that Rwanda army and intelligence operatives have been deployed across Katuna, Mukaniga, Byumba ,  Buganza and in Chanika in Kisoro district. There is also increased heavy artillery deployment by the Rwanda defense forces.

However, in the same learning, a source in security has confirmed Uganda’s deployment today at border points. “All security operatives near Rwanda, Uganda boarder points have been instructed to beef up security. They will work in 4 shifts, two during day and two during night,” the source added.

The dispute between Rwanda and Uganda broke up earlier last week after Rwanda blocked Ugandan trucks and buses from crossing into or out of Rwanda. Initially, the official reason given, was that Rwanda was upgrading its one stop border post at Katuna border. Ugandan trucks and bus drivers were advised to use Chanika border post as an alternative. However, the same border post was also blocked and moments later, Rwandan minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Richard Sezibera tweeted that Rwandans are strongly advised not to travel to Uganda due to ongoing arrests, harassment, and torture.
