    SWORN ENEMIES: Is Pastor Bujjingo Battle With NBS Boss Kin Kariisa Soon Turning ‘Bloody’? And Is His Degree Fake!…

    House of Prayer Ministries International lead pastor Aloysious Bujjingo has fired back and Next Media boss Kin Kariisa for allowing his journalists to use his platforms to attack him.

    On Friday, Bujjingo joined 65 other graduands who graduated in different discipline at Kayiwa International University (KINTU).

    KINTU is owned by Professor Simeon Kayiwa, who is also a Pastor at Namirembe Christian Fellowship. It is located along Balintuma Road, in Mengo.

    Bujjingo, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Salt Media, the biggest and most popular Christian founded media house, graduated with a Bachelor of Theology and Integrated Studies.

    After his graduation, some media houses led by NBS and Bukedde newspaper were quick to punch holes in Bujjingo’s degree.

    During his Sunday Service yesterday, Bujjingo said, “I wanted to ask Frank Gashumba, since I always see him on NBS, and he is social, to help me ask his Muvandimwe colleague Kin Kariisa, what beef does he have against me. The true Beef.

    “If I respect his degree, why is his establishments (media house) spreading wrong information that my degree is fake! They are spreading this wrong information ignorantly, not knowing that I’m not looking for a job. I’m an employer. I’m not looking for a job.”

    He added, “When they alleged that I didn’t go to school, they give it publicity, when you go to school and finish studies, they say it is fake. When you get married, they blame you for it, yet we know that the number of women they have cannot be counted.”

    GENESIS OF THE PROBLEM

    The battle between Bujjingo, Kariisa and Vision Group (under Kabushenga), started when Bujjingo filed for divorce at the High Court family division.

    Bujjingo wanted to divorce his wife Teddy Naluswa citing irreconcilable differences.

    Naluswa denied Bujjingo’s allegations and vowed never to divorce him because it is against her faith.

    During this battle, Naluswa used New Vision and Bukedde, all under Kabushenga by then to write stories that cheered her and castigated Bujjingo.

    Later, Naluswa also got allies from Kin Kariisa’s NBS TV.

    During Uncut Kalakata gossip show on NBS at 7:45pm, before it was shifted to 10:00pm for violating UCC rules, Bujjingo and Naluswa saga was always the lead story.

    At the height of the saga, NBS published a video of the home of Bujjingo’s parents in Rwanda and the presenters of the show accompanied it with statements insinuating that he had failed to take care of his parent who are living in a small ram shacked house in Rwanda while their son is living large in Uganda.

    This video and the demeaning statements that accompanied it angered the Salt Media boss and he vowed never to forgive Kariisa for allowing his journalists to invade his parents private space.

    Sensing the trouble their son was in, after the controversial video, Bujjingo’s parents quickly travelled to Uganda (from Rwanda) and apologetically told their son that their grand daughter (Doreen Gift Bujjingo) tricked them and recorded a video of their home in Rwanda without their knowledge which she gave to NBS.

    They told their son that they thought that their grand daughter was recording moments between a ‘Muzzukulu’ (grand daughter) and her grandparents, but they were shocked to hear news that they were on TV and all over social media.

    Bujjingo’s parents further told him that they were ashamed of what their grand daughter did. They told him that they are proud of the simple life they are living in Rwanda and the support he gives them was enough.

    During one of his sermons, a bitter Bujjingo castigated Kariisa and asked him how he would feel if his parents’ private space was invaded and exposed.

    “I can forgive him (Kariisa) for all the wrongs and malice from his media house, but exposing my innocent parents and bringing them into our issues was inhuman,” Bujjingo told a friend.

    Meanwhile, Kariisa’s NBS kept firing in the stories for Naluswa and against Bujjingo supported by New Vision and Bukedde, led by Robert Kabushenga by then.

    When the battle subsided and court started hearing Bujingo’s divorce case, NBS went mute on the matter.

    Along the way, Kabushenga was fired as Vision Group CEO, and later, his colleague Godfrey Kulubya, who was the head at Bukedde newspaper was forced into retirement.

    It looked like the war was over.

    KABUSHENGA IN THE MIX

    Fast forward last weekend, when Bujjingo graduated from KINTU, Bukedde ran a front page screaming headline in their Sunday edition saying: “Bugingo: Engeri Kayiwa Gy’amusibye diguli ey’ebicupuli” translated as, “How Kayiwa gave Bujjingo a fake degree”.

    This angered Bujjingo who decided to turn guns on Kabushenga blaming him for nurturing the journalism that only looks for bad things at Vision Group.

    Still in his Sunday sermon yesterday, Bujjingo said, “I see some people like Robert Kabushenga crying in videos on different social media platforms. He is saying he is broke since he is not working, but so many people lost jobs while he was at the helm of New Vision.

    “He will be answerable before the Lord for the people and businesses he killed. You cannot tell me that you head a company but you do not know what is going on.”

    He added, “I manage Salt Media group with a lot of wisdom from God, but if my editorial team is going to air or broadcast some things, they first ask for my opinion.

    “Even when I don’t have too much knowledge about it. They have to ask me and I use my God given knowledge to stop it especially if it will lead to breaking someone’s family or integrity or business. The standard that Kabushenga built at Vision Group was to look out for bad things only.”

    Bujjingo asserted that Kabushega is lying about being broke, “He is not struggling like he says. He made a lot of money soiling our names and even set up a farm, he is ok. But he is now making an alarm to attract the President’s attention.”

    IS BUJJINGO’S DEGREE GENUINE OR FAKE: KINTU SPEAKS OUT

    When theGrapevine spoke to Prof. Kayiwa on phone, he declined to comment on the matter until after two days.

    “Get back to me after two days. In two days, I will be able to comment on that matter,” Kayiwa told theGrapevine on phone.

    KINTU was given a stamp of approval by National Council of Higher Education (MCHE) and given an operation license number UIPL027 on 28th September, 2015.

    However, Bukedde newspaper on Sunday quoted an anonymous source saying that NCHE wrote to Kayiwa in 2018 asking him to fulfil some requirements in 6 month.

    The paper further alleged that in March 2020, after failing to fulfill the requirements, NCHE revoked KINTU license.

    However, independent sources at KINTU intimated to theGrapevine that the University is an affiliate of United Graduate College and Seminary International (UGCS), a biblical seminary that teaches through E-learning.

    When we searched the internet for UGCS, we finally traced their website. They described themselves as, “A non-traditional, online, biblical, Skills & Philosophy education where your smart phone can be your campus!”

    UGCS has offices in Kenya (under Prof. Jared Akama Onyari) and Mozambique (under Prof. Nathan Kahara).

    IMPUNITY: Ugly Side That Bebe Cool Is Hiding In Late Night Bar Brawl Story; Did His ‘Kanyamas’ Beat Security Officer! Shocking Details On Man Who Allegedly Knocked His V8…

    Published

    on

    Musician Bebe Cool

    New details have emerged on the scuffle involving musician Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool and an unknown security person who wanted to shoot him.

    The unknown person, who was at the bar during the incident, shared what he saw on social media detailing what happened.

    He disclosed that he has read various social media comments where Bebe is using the advantage of his popularity and huge social media following to twist the story and hide the truth.

    The unknown person narrated,” As I retired from the bar, time was about 2am, I found over 5 hugely built men surrounding a saloon car and one of the men was shouting at his loudest.

    “I realized it is one of my favourite singers, Bebe Cool who was shouting. I tried to ask some of the people who were also watching the fracas from a distance on what was going on.

    “I was informed that a drunkard had knocked Bebe Cool’s V8 as he attempted reverse in the parking. Of course, there is no way many of us would pick our cars to go home until the matter was settled. The crowds kept growing, and I had to move near to watch what was happening.”

    He recounted that as he got nearer, he saw one of the men (Kanyama) pushing his hand in the saloon car which he later realised was a Benz fighting to pull out the car key.

    He narrated that he later learnt he was acting on orders from Bebe Cool who insisted that the drunkard should be arrested as he called out his military guard and other security guards of the bar to take action.

    The unknown person revealed that, “The person who was inside the small car whom Bebe Cool called a drunkard had lowered the windscreen to talk to the kanyamas, that is how one of the Kanyama managed to pull out the car key, and in a blink of an eye, they pulled out the man as they beat him.

    “In the process of roughing him up on handcuffs, I realized he had a gun which had fallen and Bebe Cool and his Kanyama whom I learnt is called Cobra had got the gun. Bebe Cool started shouting as they slapped the man already on handcuffs that he was armed. It is from there that they all understood that the man was a security officer otherwise how could he be armed.

    “I also realized that he was not as drunk as Bebe Cool kept referring to him because he kept very calm and engaging Bebe Cool that this was not a matter that should be escalated.”

    He added that the man’s shirt had been torn and he was clearly embarrassed.

    He divulged, “Because had he been that drunk and armed, I don’t think he would allow to lower his windscreen to talk to ‘Kanyamas’ who dragged him out of the car.”

    He still disclosed that Bebe Cool had called police who came with a patrol truck and threw him on as he was handcuffed.

    He disclosed, “One of the men who I think works at the bar and was talking to Bebe Cool all the time, had been with the car key of the man and entered his car to give way for Bebe Cool and all followed the police truck.

    “So, I wondered why would you drive a car of a man who could have been a security officer. Even not being a security officer why would u drive someone’s car who he is not around and has not authorized you to?”

    To his surprise, however, he woke up in shock of what he was seeing on social media claiming it was full of Bebe Cool’s posts about the incident but he hid some facts as he (unknown person) stated them.

    He divulged that, “I have also watched TV and he still saying the same things. I have also seen on TV that indeed the man was a soldier.

    “I saw a police officer who speaks for police saying this man was admitted, I want to believe so, because the way the ‘kanyamas’ beat him anyone would be admitted. One Kanyama punched him on the jaw and he fell down.

    “At that time, if it were me and I had a gun I can surely spray bullets.

    “As I conclude I want to caution fellow Ugandans let’s be civil. Several times I have seen people involved in a fracas because of an accident.

    “Why would you beat someone that has knocked you? Is there any person who wakes up and goes on the road to knock the other? A car is not God. A car irrespective of the model, whether range rover or V8 or Benz, can be repaired.”

    POLICE SPEAK OUT ON THE INCIDENT.

    Addressing press today, Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said that they received complaints from musician Bebe Cool accusing a security personnel, a one Capt. Namara for allegedly knocking his car which caused a fight.

    “According to Bebe Cool, he alleged that one of our security personnel pulled out his gun and he called his security guards who removed it from him and up to now, we have it,” Owoyesigyire said.

    He however noted that even the security personnel is nursing wounds having been badly beaten by Bebe Cool’s bodyguards.

    “We are investigating two cases that involve an alleged accident by our security personnel and also pulling out a gun.”

    He also added that they will get statements from different witnesses so they can come up with a final statement.

    UMA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SPEAKS OUT.

    Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) presidential candidate, Semanda Mansur alias King Saha has said that Bebe Cool is known for being naughty.

    “He is ever making mistakes, he makes small and huge mistakes, however, I condemn the act of pulling out a gun. Otherwise, he (Bebe Cool) should reduce his stubbornness, everyone should know where he stops,” Saha said.

    He however promised that as an upcoming President for UMA, he is going to investigate the matter and find out the cause of the incident.

    Her Acts Of Adultery Embarrassed Me – Court Gives Tough Orders To Archbishop Ntagali’s Side Dish In Divorce With Husband…

    Published

    Kabale Chief Magistrate’s Court has given tough orders while allowing Ms. Judith Tukamuhabwe, a former side dish to retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Stanley Ntagali to divorce her husband, Rev. Christopher Tugumehabwe.

    On Friday, Racheal Tabaruka, the Grade One magistrate of Kabale Court dissolved the marriage between Rev. Tugumehabwe and his wife Ms. Judith Tukamuhabwe and directed each party to bear their own costs.

    “A decree nisi is granted, dissolving the marriage between the petitioner and the respondent,” Tebaruka ruled.

    She directed that from the date of her ruling, Ms. Tukamuhabwe should stop using Rev. Tugumehabwe’s name on all her documents because they are no longer married.

    However, the magistrate dismissed Rev. Tugumehabwe’s prayer to force his wife to pay him Shs.31m which he used to purchase a car for her.

    The magistrate instead directed Ms. Tukamuhabwe to produce the motor vehicle, a Toyota Rav4 registration number UBG 265T to Court for market valuation before it is auctioned.

    She directed that once the car in contention is sold, Ms. Tukamuhabwe should be given 58% of the proceeds and the remaining amount can be taken by Rev. Tugumehabwe.

    The magistrate also dismissed Ms. Tukamuhabwe’s prayer that they share all the properties they had in their marriage.

    In 2020, Ms. Tukamuhabwe, through her lawyers of New Mark Advocates petitioned Court seeking for divorce accusing her husband of deserting her without a reason. She further accused him of harassing and insulting her.

    However, before the hearing kicked off, Rev. Tugumehabwe also submitted a cross petition asking court to dissolve their marriage on grounds that Ms. Tukamuhebwa was sleeping with several men.

    He further told the Court that because of his wife’s adulterous acts, he has suffered public embarrassment especially when Ms. Tukamuhabwe cheated on him with high profile persons (Archbishop Ntagali).

    It should be remembered that Ntagali admitted that he slept with Ms. Tukamuhebwa, a married woman.

    Ntagali asked for forgiveness from the church leaders and Rev. Tugumuhabwe himself.

    Ms. Tukamuhebwa Married Rev. Tukamuhabwa on December 15, 2018, at Rugarama Cathedral of Church of Uganda in Kabale.

    She filed for divorce two years later in December 2020.

    During the two years of marriage, the couple had one child who surprisingly Ms. Tukamuhebwa said does not belong to Rev. Tugumuhabwe.

    Ms. Tukamuhebwa also had two kids from previous relations before marrying Rev. Tugumuhabwe.
