    Stop Lying To People That Nyege Nyege Is An Immoral Festival – Kadaga To Speaker Among, MPs…



    Speaker Anita Among (L) and Minister Rebecca Kadaga (R)

    The First deputy Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga has appreciated Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Anita Among for giving Nyege Nyege free advertising.

    Kadaga, who doubles as Minister for East African Affairs, appreciated  Among and other Members of Parliament (MP) for promoting the festival.

    Kadaga’s sarcastic appreciation comes at a time when the Speaker disagreed with the festival terming it ‘immoral.’

    Nyege Nyege set social media ablaze when it was brought to the floor of parliament as a point of debate and most MPs stood with the Speaker that the festival should be stopped.

    This however caused a rival between the Legislative arm of government and the Executive who wanted the event to be held with strict guidelines.

    Whereas most people had no clue about the ‘immoral’ festival, it was finally brought to their attention and many including prominent politicians, business people and MPs vowed to attend for the first time to have a Nyege Nyege feeling.

    Speaking at Bugembe Kingdom Headquarters during the 8th anniversary of the Kyabazinga of Busoga, Kadaga said that Nyege Nyege is the only festival in Busoga which brings in a lot of money into the region.

    “As I speak right now, 4000 people have travelled from Kenya, some are in Iganga and others are in Lugazi, they are in our hotels and giving us money. In Tanzania we have 1500 people, from  Rwanda they are over 500 who travelled and also from South Sudan,” she revealed.

    Kadaga added, ” Therefore stop lying to people that it is an immoral festival. The Ugandan government does not deal with immorality and so you cannot buy a ticket from wherever you are saying you have gone to do immoral acts. I therefore invite all of you to go and attend Nyege Nyege festival at Itanda falls.”

    She contended, ” I want to appreciate those fighting it because the more you tell people not to go, the more they are concerned to know what happens there. So, thank you so much for fighting our festival because you are promoting it.”

    Kadaga further condemned Maurice Kibalya, the Bugabula North MP who used his position in Parliament to ban the festival from his home area.

    Nyege Nyege festival is set to kick off on Thursday, 15th to 18th, September, 2022.

    Pastor Bugingo, Wife Makula Trash Breakup Allegations



    Pastor Aloysious Bugingo of House of prayer Ministries and wife Suzan Makula have trashed allegations that they broke up.

    Social media has been awash with news alleging that Pastor Bugingo and spouse Suzan Makula were at bad terms because the Pastor had committed adultery. The news also indicated that Makula had abandoned church over the same reason.

    However, the two have come out to deny the breakup allegations and said nothing but only death will separate them.

    In a YouTube interview with Kasuku, Suzan Makula and Pastor Bugingo trashed the rumours. Makula said she has been away from church because she had to attend to her mother who had been bedridden.

    Makula further said that she is at times busy ministering at Sunday school and that aside, she goes to church to pray not to exhibit her presence.

    Makula blamed the rumours on citizen journalists who circulate information before verifying its authenticity.

    Pastor Bugingo on the other hand said the rumors making rounds are not true. Bugingo said he has stopped his wife Makula from taking the matter to court and urged her to remain silent.

    “I told her to be silent on the matter and not go to court. Never step so low to take a stupid person in the courts of law,” Bugingo said.

    The two also revealed that they have been together since 2017 as opposed to media reports that they started their affair in 2019.

    In 2019,Pastor Bugingo filed for divorce with then wife Teddy Bugingo. Shortly after he paraded Suzan Makula as his official lover.

    VIDEO: Chameleone Runs To Pastor Bujjingo To Break Gwanga Mujje Curse, Musician Uses Full Bottle Of Anointing Oil To Drive Away ‘Demons’…



    Legendary Musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone has run to House of Prayer Ministries International (HPMI) Pastor Aloysious Bujjingo to break Gwanga Mujje curse.

    Of late, Chameleone has been shrouded in problems after his highly advertised concert was cancelled due to heavy rains that destroyed the stage on which he was set to perform that evening.


    Sources at Wakaliga based Salt Media, where Pastor Bujjingo sits as CEO told theGrapevine that Chameleone stormed them at around 5:00pm in the evening in his black range Rover sport with GWANGA MUJJE number plate to be anointed and be prayed for so that the blessing of the Lord Jesus Christ fight for him on 24th February when he steps again on stage.

    Chameleone was warmly welcomed by Pastor Bujjingo and some of his assistants led by Pastor Denis Mukulu.

    He was taken to Bujjingo’s office where the prayerful youthful pastor prayed for him and even anointed him with oil.


    “They almost used a full bottle of anointing oil on him,” a source who attended the prayer meeting told theGrapevine.

    It should be remembered that on Friday 10th February, Chameleone was set to step on stage again for his one-man concert dubbed Gwanga Mujje.

    However, in the afternoon, heavy rains hit the magnificent stage and the section of the VIP. Some of the stage organisers were left hurt and Fenon Events equipment destroyed.


    What happened with Jose Chameleon was the first ever of its kind. According to music critic and events’ organizer Eddy Ssendi, a similar event had happened in Nabugabo when promoter Abitex musinguzi aka Abitex promotions organized a stage on the shores of Nabugabo sand beach.

    According to Top Secrets, a local English tabloid, Biggie Events, the official organizer of Ggwanga Mujje had already paid  Chameleone Shs.150m and she was only waiting for her returns on investment.
