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.

ALL EVIDENCE PINS HIM: State Asks Court To Convict Tycoon Sebuufu On Murder Of Businesswoman Katushabe

Published

on

Businessman Sebuufu (L) with the late Katushabe (R)

State prosecutor Michael Ojoko has asked High Court Judge Flavia Senoga  to convict pine car bond proprietor Muhammad Sebuufu and six others for killing city businesswoman Donna Betty Katushabe.

In their final submission today, Ojoko told court that the prosecution has proved that Sebuufu and the co-accused murdered Katushabe. He submitted that Sebuufu planned the murder of Katushabe because two days before the murder, he kidnapped Katushabe from her home in Bwebajja, Wakiso district. Sebuufu also sent his security assistant Shaban Oduutu  to open a car theft case  number SD-54-17-10-2015 at Kampala central police station.

Ojoko told court that Sebuufu’s mission to open up this case was to prove that Katushabe was a thief who stole a vehicle from Pine car bond and it was the reason why they killed her. He further said that Sebuufu never followed the case he opened. Ojoko cited the testimony of Specioza Nyanza a police officer who commanded the arrest of Katushabe. Specioza told court that during the deceased’s arrest, she was fine and did not look sickly as the defendant claimed. Ojoko revealed that it was after the deceased was beaten and tortured at pine that she died. The pathology doctor William Mutumba indicated in his pathology report that Katushabe died because of blood tumors.

He said that the tumor was as a result of torture and constant beatings. She further explained that even the laboratory tests indicated that the blood found on the wall in Sebuufu’s office was corresponding with that of Katushabe which proves that she was murdered in Sebuufu’s office.

He explained to the presiding judge that even though the trading license found in Sebuufu’s office was not in his names, there were witnesses who pinned him that he used that office to torture Katushabe. He submitted that Peter Tumusiime, the lawyer who was sent by his boss Annet Kobusingye, a lawyer to Katushabe told court that he found Sebuufu and five well-built men beating Katushabe who was undressed and on handcuffs.

He added that it was Sebuufu who called Kobusingye, the lawyer to the deceased ordering her to bring his balance of Shs9m which Katushabe owed him after the purchase of a Toyota Premio car. He added that Sebuufu even warned her that if she failed to raise the money, he was going to kill Katushabe which he did. He said that it was the first time for Kobusigye to talk to Sebuufu so there was no reason why he would have deceived court. Ojok told court that the phone communication showed that Sebuufu was at pine by the time Katushabe was murdered not at Mwanga 11 court as he claimed.

He said that the conviction of Sebuufu will save the public from people who are killing others unlawful. The case is still on ongoing.

If My Client Is Killed In Luzira Prison Lt. General Gutti Will Be Answerable – Kittata’s Lawyer Bangs Tables

Published

on

Abdallah Kitatta

Lawyer Shaban Sanywa who is representing embattled bodaboda 2010 patron Abdullah Kittata has warned that if his client dies in Luzira government prison Lt General Andrew Gutti, the chairperson of the Makindye based court martial will be answerable.

Sanywa first protested state prosecutor captain Samuel Masereje’s submission. Capt. Masejere submitted that Kittata must be remanded to Luzira or Kigo  civilian prisons because the threats against his life were no more and his case reached an end.

However, Sanywa challenged Masereje’s arguments saying that his client should be left in Makindye Military prison because he is safe there. Sanywa revealed that there are people who are targeting Kitatta’s life. He cited two people who were arrested at Makindye Military prison trying to poison Kittata.

Even though Sanywa put up a spirited fight to have his client remain in Makindye prison, General Gutti turned a deaf ear and remanded Kittata to Luzira prison. Earlier, court was told that the three witnesses who were summoned by defense lawyer Sanywa to come and testify on Kittata’s side refused to honor the summons. Sanywa told court that he had served three witnesses but they intentionally refused to appear in court.

Later, Sanywa told the media that if his client dies in Luzira prison, the court martial boss Lt. Gutti will be answerable.

The suspects include Private Kenneth Okello, the officer in charge of Old Kampala police Armory, Sgt Allan Matsiko, the second body guard to Kittata and Vine Tea Hotel manager where Kittata arrested from with guns by military police. Kittata and nine others are facing charges of unlawful possession of firearms, ammunition and military gears which the state says they are a monopoly of only defense force.

The Blind Cannot Lead The Clear-Sighted; Kyagulanyi Is Lost And Blind – President M7’s Office Responds To Bobi Wine Over Arua Jibe

Published

on

The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) through the office of the party chairman who is also the president have responded to Bobi Wine over his attack on President Museveni.

While in Arua yesterday, During the area MP Kassiano Wadri’s thanksgiving ceremony, Bobi told president Museveni that his days are numbered. He warned the president to stop telling him to stick to music because he didn’t also stick to cattle keeping.

In a message on their page, the president’s office said, “Kyaddondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine), has been quoted as saying that the days of the National Chairman of NRM, President Yoweri Museveni, are numbered. The MP was speaking in Arua over the weekend.

In making the statement, the MP forgot to say that so many detractors have predicted doom and wished the NRM National Chairman ill luck for longer than anyone can remember but he has broken all records conceivable to be who and where he is. Only God can number his days.”

They added, “Instead, it is Kyagulanyi’s days that are numbered. Why? He attempted to jump into the deep end without any iota of intellectual and ideological propulsion leading to shameful spectacles such as the failure to define “fiscal policy concepts” as the world recently witnessed on live TV that left the MP with egg on his face. In comparison, when National Chairman Museveni was breaking his teeth in mainstream politics, he was so sophisticated in his ideas that Ugandans didn’t believe he was one of them. They were used to mediocrity and incoherence. When, eventually, he proved that his ideas were not meant for America or Europe but for Uganda, they embraced him and have never looked back since.

Ugandans expect no less a level of grasp and articulation of ideas decades on. Museveni’s being 33 years in power is not accidental but incidental to personal preparation and natural endowment.

When he told Kyagulanyi to concentrate on music, National Chairman Museveni was advising the manic junior politician against parading himself cluelessly in elevated circles of leadership without first garnering minimum thought and grasp of concepts, let alone articulating them to publics. High level leadership is far detached from music, comedy and social scandal. Any budding leader with hope of building a career to talk of would take such counsel in good faith and learn from the best.”

“The blind cannot lead the clear-sighted; Ugandans are clear-sighted, Kyagulanyi is lost and blind.
In Luganda they say: Nantabulirirwa asabala gwa bbumba (He who is hard of hearing takes the clayey path-and sinks in the marsh-despite being warned).

In Runyankole they say: Obinga ibiri, imutsiga (He who chases two animals in one go loses both). That’s the unfolding story of Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine!” they said.
