Dorothy Shonga

Socialite and self-styled millionaire, Dorothy Shonga and her business partner Collins Magalasi have been arrested and charged with fraud.

MERA Chief Executive Officer, Collins Magalasi and spokesperson Maulidi were arrested on Monday 27/07/2020 while Shonga was arrested yesterday at 3pm.

Shonga has been on the run since 24th July, 2020 but she decided to give herself in to Malawian authorities after getting tired of running.

It is alleged that Shonga and Magalasi opened an illegal advertising company called D&C Brand Cloud which they used as a conduit for their unlawful dealings.

State accuses Magalasi, Maulidi and Shonga of forcing the MERA Internal Procurement and Disposal Committee to award a contract worth KW107 million (535 Million Uganda shillings) to their company D&C Brand Cloud which was illegal in August 2019.

Section 331A (1) of the Penal Code as amended in 2011 before the 2017 Financial Crimes Act was passed to the states that “any person who engages in money laundering shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable to a fine of K2,000,000 and imprisonment for ten years” yet Section 42 of the country’s Financial Crimes Act passed in 2017 sets a maximum of life imprisonment .

The state prosecutor asked that the trio should be held in custody as police continues with the investigations.

The ruling on the matter will be made by Chief Resident Magistrate Violet Chipao on Friday 31st of July 2020.

Shonga has always described herself as a self-made millionaire claiming she made her riches while working on the campaign trail for Zambian President.

Musician Mayinja Makes U-turn, Seeks Solace In Bobi Wine’s NUP….

Published

Bobi Wine with Mayinja

After a short spell away, veteran artist, Ronald Mayinja has returned to the mainstream opposition from his own Peace for All political movement.

Mayinja was most active in politics as a member of the Democratic Party (DP) before party officials denounced him following his performance at one of the ruling party’s (National Resistance Movement) event last year.

The motive was however linked to his close collaboration with the rebellious DP members, such as the Mukono Municipality MP, Betty Nambooze, who has been at loggerheads with the party President, Nobert Mao.

Mayinja was warmly received by newly formed National Unity Platform (NUP) president, and fellow artiste, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, alongside others artists Hussein Ibanda aka Swengere and Aloysius Matovu Joy.

The “Tuli ku bunkenke” singer who earlier on had initial intentions of contesting for MP in his home area in Gomba publicly declared that he has not offered himself for any political position.

Besides all the anomalies, the soft spoken singer evidently has a soft spot for the People Power political pressure group led by fellow artiste Bobi Wine. He was quick to apologize to all his, and NUP fans, and his reconciliation seemed to come so easy.

“My brother Ronald Mayinja has inspired many of us over the years, and I am sure even when he wandered off at some point, I know that his heart was always with us. I am grateful that you comrades have given him a warm welcome back home,” Bobi said.

Bobi also commended comedian Swengere for not only being funny but also intelligent, thoughtful and solid human whose heart is with the people.

On Aloysious Matovu, Bobi referred to him as an elder and senior citizen who has been a personal inspiration over the years.

“I feel extremely humbled seeing such a noble citizen come to join NUP. All these things are evidence that we represent what is right and just,” Bobi added.

NUP embraced many other leaders at different levels. These included the KCCA Speaker, Kawalya Abubakar, and several other KCCA councillors, Division councillors, and leaders of other areas.

Presidential Advisor Catherine Kusasira Embarrasses Self On Live TV, Fails To Spell Her Title…

Published

on

President Museveni’s advisor on Kampala matters, Catherine Kusasira was caught off guard when she failed to correctly spell the word ‘Presidential advisor’, her own job title, as tasked by events promoter cum politician, Andrew Mukasa alias Bajjo Events.

Appearing on Baba TV’s political show yesterday, Bajjo and Kusasira engaged in a heated verbal exchange where the former claimed the later attained minimal education.

Kusasira had earlier threatened to expose Bajjo’s illiteracy, accusing him of possessing fake academic papers from Nasser road.

“I will bring my papers here and shame you. You have qualifications from Nasser road,” Kusasira ranted.

In reiteration, Bajjo revealed how Kusasira never went beyond ordinary level of the Ugandan education system, offering therefore to voluntarily “teach” her. That’s when he brought in the primary level brain testing game, tasking her to spell the word ‘presidential advisor’, to which she wrongly spelt as ‘presidencal adversar’.

Kusasira later on appeared on another TV station to defend her public image, spelling the word correctly, off paper though.

I Have Never Gained Anything From This Gov’t, Why Do They Want To Kill Me! – M7’s Boy Ashburg Katto Who Crossed From People Power Cries Out For Help…

Published

on

Former People Power diehard turned NRM mobiliser Ashburg Katto has called on President Museveni to rescue him from a one ‘Kojja Omugezi’ who is threatening his life.

In a video on his Facebook page, Katto said that Kojja has been trailing him for a long time.

“When I made research, I was told Kojja Omugezi is a former Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) of Jamil Mukulu but he was given amnesty by government, he’s now living in Ireland,” a tearful Katto said.

“I’m called Kojja Omugezi I do not hide, I want you to take this audio in good faith.I have got information that you are working for the NRM regime.If we find out that you are against the people of Uganda,we shall see what next. I know where you stay and your movements,” Kojja Omugezi allegedly warned Ashburg Kato in an audio.

Katto added that at first, he had taken the threats lightly but he’s now scared.

“For Uganda to get back to track, we must kill some people, this is the fact. Let us isolate Ashburg Katto. We know where you stay, maybe you go and get shelter at Muhoozi’s residence,” Kojja Omugezi allegedly warned Katto.

While asking for help, Katto gave an example of Afande Mohammed Kirumira who warned that some people wanted to kill him and they finally did.

He alleges that the reason why Kojja Omugezi wants to kill his is because of his immense support for President Museveni.

“I have never gained anything from this government I’m even using boda bodas as a means of transport. Why do you want to kill me? I even fear to move out. Please Afande Ochola, Sabiti Muzeeyi and good father President Museveni come to my rescue,” the NRM social media activist added.
