Stop Embarrassing Yourself, Learn How to buy Your Own Car And Pay Your Domestic Bills – MP Nambooze Stings Bagyenda

Published

Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze Bakireke has blasted Bank of Uganda’s Justine Bagyenda to stop fighting over a government vehicle and learn that now that she is out of Bank of Uganda, she needs to learn to buy her own car, hire her own guards and pay her own bills.
In a post on one of his social media pages, the shadow government spokesperson told Bagenda to stop embarrassing herself. Below is her post verbatim:
Absolute power spoils absolutely….During the Xmas holiday….Mr Museveni drove around his private farm in a Presidential car completely fitted with a National flag…so the President of Uganda was touring Mr. Museveni’s farm….I understand Uganda government best veterinary Doctors work on Museveni’s farms as herdsboys !

I also hear there are some powerful people who have government employees,soldiers and policemen working as shamba boys,herdsmen at their private homes farms, businesses plus chuffering around their spouses and children in government cars. Their children are studying in foreign countries on scholarships,they don’t know what we go through to raise school fees. They converted public houses in Kololo into their private homes ,upgraded them using government facilities for no pay and Parceled out to themselves square mailos of land off Uganda’s public land.

When government employees are deployed to run private businesses of our big men and women they continue to pick government salaries and benefits and work as if they serve the public. When these people and their families travel out of the country for holiday they depend on our embassies and at times make ambassadors run into debts to pay their hotel bills,shopping and other luxuries. They pick official travel tickets and fly around the world in business class for free.

As they live such life, these people pour scorn on our people that they are poor because they do not work hard. With free labour and farm inputs they think farming is easy, with tax free businesses run basically as public enterprises they think businesses in Uganda is easy, with campaigns run by DISOs,RDCs,DPCs and an electrol commission that favors them, they think running for political offices is easy, because they serve in public offices were they owe no body accountability or hardwork they think being a civil servant is easy.

One day power vanishes, these special situations cease to be… Our great farmers loss the free labour,our great businessmen loss the tax free and exemptions,our great politicians lose the rigging machinery and the true Ugandan life sets in and they cant cope!

I saw this today, watching COSASE proceedings on TV and I saw how Bank of Uganda officials were trying to justify why Justine Bagyenda their retired and former employee has to retain the Official car, driver and guards. It set in my mind that the Billioneer Bagyenda has never learnt to buy her own cars and pay her domestic staff.

But Betty Nambooze knows to pay over ten people who are in her service, she knows how to buy her cars and fuel them, she knows how to own her houses and look after her big extended family. She has no pending accountability issues and serve without cheating the public. Ugandans pay her a salary and she is grateful and serves them with all her strength, she hussle and she has husled all her life….if God gives her good life, at clocking her retirement age, she will retire to her small house in Buvuma, write books and visit places to give speeches. She will bask in humble but joyful life with her grandchildren… That is her dream. I thank God that I have never had absolute power to spoil me absolutely.

One wise man said that the day you learn to fetch your water is the day you will learn to value every drop of water. To sister Justine Bagyenda, please Nyabo kindly learn that a car for a lady of your level costs about 200 millions( ours cost much less) and you need only 1,000,000/= to hire both a private guard and driver per month….. Stop embarrassing yourself and making headlines….Welcome to Uganda.

I Have Been Forging Documents Since My Childhood: Former URA Staff Boasts Before Bamugemereire

Published

Semanda before the land probe

Former Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) staff Steven Semanda boasted before Justice Catherine Bamugemereire’s land probe that he has been a forgery expert since his childhood.

Semanda testified that he has on several occasions been charged in different courts and recorded a number of police statements on uttering forged documents.

“Yes, it’s true I have been making a lot of forgeries but much of the time it’s my friends who ask me to forge documents for them. My Lord, I also don’t want be named to be in such things,” Semanda said. He told the commission that the evil of uttering forged documents started when he was still a young man.

“It was foolish but I forged my father’s signature and withdrew his money from his bank account,” Semanda added. Justice Bamugemereire the chairperson of the commission asked him whether he was the one behind the forging of documents indicating that the 28 acres of land in Kitezi were owned by his brother Charles Mulinde.

Bamugemereire cited the testimony of Mulinde who told the commission that he never owned the contested land but one day, he received a phone call from Semanda asking him to meet and sign certain documents for him. Mulinde said that it was his other brother Apollo Lumu who stopped him from signing the said documents because he (Semanda) was targeting their father’s estate.  Mulinde further told the commission that Semanda was fired from URA after forging documents and embezzling a lot of money.

Semanda admitted that he forged the said documents but clarified that he did it under pressure from his brother Lumu who wanted to own their father’s land saying their elder brothers were not serious.  He denied proceeding with the process because his elder brother Dr. Fred Kambugu warned him to stop forging documents with the aim of stealing their family’s land.

Dr. Kambugu, the Kampala skin clinic boss ran to the commission claiming that there are people who fraudulently grabbed their father’s estate including their family members.

The commission is still investigating the matter.

Published

on

President Museveni’s former press secretary Joseph Tamale Mirundi has revealed that there are many signs showing that the mafias in president Museveni’s government are fighting each other over money and power.

“You know we intellectuals have information that mafias are fighting each other that is why dead bodies are now being thrown on the streets. Mafias here are very deadly and I’m telling you Uganda will end up like Somalia, they are going to kill themselves,” Mirundi, who was hosted on Pearl FM radio on Saturday said.

He noted that the mafias in Museveni’s government first fought and chased all the people who were loyal to Museveni under the guise of preventing them from stealing tax payers money. Mirundi said that by the time Museveni supporters like him, Ministry of Education Permanent Secretary Asuman Lukwago were kicked out, the mafias were working together.

Mirundi however said that their tormenters have now developed misunderstanding over money and power that’s why they are fighting each other.

The self-claimed media consultant and private investigator further revealed that the mafias in government have guns which they are using now to kill themselves, he gave an example of the gruesome murder of Joshua Nteyireho Ruhegyera and Mary Tumukunde who were gunned down on Entebbe express highway. Mirundi rubbished the arrests made by Uganda police and other security agencies over the current string of murders and kidnaps adding that the arrested suspects never committed these crimes.

I WANT HER TO VOMIT MY LAND: Mulago Hospital Doctor Drags Former Minister Maria Kiwanuka To Land Probe For Grabbing Her 9 Acres Of Land In Munyonyo…

Published

L-R: Nabukeera and former minister Maria Kiwanuka

The troubles befalling former finance minister who is also the general manager of Radio one, Akaboozi kubiiri Maria Rhoda Nabasirye Kiwanuka keep pilling each day.

A senior Mulago hospital doctor has now dragged her to the commission of inquiry into land matters for grabbing their 9 acres of land in Munyonyo Kampala.  Rhone Irene Lubega Nabukeera testified before the commission of inquiry into land matters that her father the late Solomon Lubega Byatike Matovu (60) bought 9 acres of land on Kyadondo Block 257 plot 5 from prince Alfred Kigaala, a son to fallen Buganda King, Sir Daudi Chwa in 1964.

“According to the agreement we found at the department of mapping and surveying in Entebbe, our father fully paid the money for the land and lodged a caveat on it to stop unscrupulous people from selling it again, unfortunately, he died before transferring the land into his names,” Nabukeera said.

She told the commission that as a family, they knew that their father left land in Munyonyo but they did not have the documentations until 2006 when a one Yusuf Mukasa, a friend to their late father brought to them the documents.

She said that they went to the registrar of land titles in the Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development to find out the status of their late father’s land. She narrated that at the ministry of lands, they were told that the ministry cannot locate their land because it was still in folios even though it was still caveated. They further advised them to consult Entebbe department of mapping and surveying.

She testified that at Entebbe, they carried out an investigation and found out that their land was subdivided was currently on Kyadondo Block 257 plot 5 and 433. Their findings further revealed that the land was registered in the names of Ambrose Wafumba in 1975.

Nabukeera with her lawyer before the commission

They further discovered that the land was transferred from Wafumba and registered in Alima investments Uganda limited which is owned by Maria Nabasirye Kiwana  Kiwanuka, Margate Kiwana, Nakato Mbekeka, Margate Ndibalekera and Janet Nkabidwa, the shareholders of Alima investments. She revealed that efforts to speak to the owners of Alima investments limited were futile and they decided to use legal means. However, every lawyer they approach for assistance abandoned them. Nabukeera revealed that they discovered that there was an invisible hand influencing lawyers to abandon them.

However, Nabukeera found a tough time when commissioner Dr. Rose Nakayi, a Makerere University law don tasked her to present evidence that the land in question was sold to her father.

Nakayi, basing on the documents before the commission told Nabukeera that the land was owned by King Daudi Chwa on behalf of Buganda so his son Kigaala had no powers to sell it.

In response, Nabukeera insisted that the land was given to Kigaala by Chwa so he owned the land in his personal capacity.  She further testified that even her late mother Dorothy Nasolo benefitted from that land as a daughter to king Chwa.

Former Buganda minister Robert Sebunya supported Nabukeera that the said land was owned by King Chwa in his personal capacity not a king. 

Justice Catherine Bamugemereire the chairperson of the commission promised Nabukeera that very soon, Maria Kiwanuka and others will be summoned to explain how they got the contested land.

Maria Nabasirye Kiwanuka is still battling with her husband’s son Sebuliba Kiwanuka who dragged her to the high court civil division accusing her of fraudulently changing the administration of their father’s companies including Oscar industries limited. Sebuliba asked High Court judge Musa Sekana to issue an order to have his father Mohan Kiwanuka’s mental status examined claiming that her step mother Nabasirye is using him to sign strange documents giving her powers to administer his properties.
