THIS IS WAR: You Wanted To Sell Bobi Wine To M7: Bobi’s Bodyguard Eddie Mutwe Blasts DP Block, Bwanika Calls Bobi A Dictator, Worse Than Museveni

L-R: Bwanika, Bobi Wine and Eddie Mutwe

Kyadondo East Legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine’s bodyguard Eddie Mutwe has blasted DP block members for trying to sell his boss to president Museveni.

In a post on his page earlier today, Mutwe, who was responding to rants from DP block’s Abed Bwahika and Norbert Mao said that Mao and Bwanika tried to control Kyagulanyi with the aim of negotiating power with Museveni.

Mutwe revealed, “Yesterday, Nobert Mao came out with a long statement in which he directed DP Bloc members not to join or associate with People Power. Today Bwanika was on radio saying that Bobi Wine is killing their project by appointing regional coordinators.

It should be remembered that these two gentlemen have tried unsuccessfully for two years to control Hon. Kyagulanyi. Their ball game was to use him to build DP which died long ago, and when he helps them recover it, be able to have some more negotiating power with Museveni.

Bobi dicovered their trap and distanced himself from them because he is a clever man. He decided to deal directly with the people and not necessarily the leaders who are double dealers.

Their mission has now been fully exposed. But let them know that Ugandans are not stupid.”

MAO BITTER

When Bobi Wine released a list of his regional coordinators, Mao warned him that it is impossible for the new coordinators to work for Bobi without undermining their own parties hence the need for DP members to keep away from him. Mao didn’t disclose what will happen to the DP MPs and other leaders who already accepted positions in PP coordination team but only said more guidance would be issued after their DP Bloc high level meeting on Monday.

The DP boss added that they will summon Bobi and his team to discuss more.

BWANIKA CALLS BOBI A WORSE DICTATOR THAN M7

Today morning, during ‘Palamenti Yaffe’, a political talk show on CBS radio moderated by Med Nsereko, Bwanika denounced Bobi  and portrayed him as a dictator who doesn’t believe in elective processes.

Bwanika told listeners that what happened at Magere on Wednesday, where Bobi unveiled his coordinators amounted to betrayal of the original principles on which they founded People Power and Bobi jumped on the bandwagon later.

“This means it has now become individual power and not People Power anymore,” Bwanika said.

Bwanika warned that Bobi’s list was full of moles, money-makers and self-seekers 70% of whom will by December have defected to NRM leaving Bobi with only 30%.

“This has worked for President Museveni because he now knows who is who and he is going to buy off all of them. I’m here and by December 70% of them will be with NRM. The 30% remaining will be moles just spying for President Museveni on what remains of PP,” Bwanika said.

Bwanika also alleged that many of the people on the list paid. ‘I know of one whose name had been omitted and was only included at the last minute after paying Shs10m. And that isn’t the only one. There are many others who paid to be on that list,” Bwanika said.

He reiterated Mao’s statements that Bobi had no rights to give DP members responsibility without consulting the paarty leadership.

“Even if you are Bobi Wine you don’t just go dealing with our members as DP and giving them responsibility. You have to come through us as leaders. You consult and we give you names of people to include. This is why all those who have denounced membership of that list are right. It simply can’t work that way. You are PP not DP and yet you want DP members to go mobilize for you,” Bwanika ranted.

He added, “We have been speaking to other parties like ANT, JEEMA, DP and even FDC asking each to prepare a proposal on how we can work together under PP as a joint opposition platform but the list Bobi Wine released has taken us back to square one. He has turned PP into a political party yet it was supposed to be the umbrella under which we come together. I have been in talks with FDC Chairman Birigwa and we were expecting their written proposals on how we can work together under PP as a joint opposition front. But now this isn’t possible anymore because he has turned PP into one of the competing entities at the talks.”

Attorney General Defends Appointment of BOU D/Governor, DPP, URA And Prisons Boss During Lockdown In East African Court….

Published

L-R: URA's Rujoki, BOU D/Governor Dr. Antingi, prisons boss Byabashaija and the new DPP justice Abodo

The Government of Uganda through the Attorney General (AG) has defended the actions of President Yoweri Museveni to appoint the new deputy Governor Bank of Uganda, Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Commissioner General Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), Commissioner General of prisons and his deputy during COVID19 lockdown in the East African courts of justice.

In his response to the suit filed by city lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi, the Attorney General denied all the accusations and asked that the suit be dismissed with costs.

In his suit, Mabirizi claims that it was illegal for the president to appoint Jane Frances Abodo as the DPP when she is a judge at the High Court.

He protested that the appointment of Abodo will create unfairness against the accused because she knows all the judges and can easily access them something the accused cannot do.

Mabirizi further protested that by the time Abodo appointed the DPP, she was under the Judicial Service Commission yet the law is very clear that for a person to be appointed as DPP, they must be recommended by public service commission. He wants the regional court to declare that Abodo was illegally appointed.

The controversial lawyer also protested that the appointment of John Musinguzi as the new URA Commissioner General was illegal since his name was not recommended by the board to the president as required by law.

He also objected the appointment of the Commissioner General of prison Dr. Johnson Byabashaija and his deputy James Mwanje, the appointment of Dr. Michael Antingi Ego and the deputy Governor Bank of Uganda by the president during the COVID19 lockdown arguing that Ugandans were denied their right and opportunity to raise their complaints against the newly appointed public officials before being approved by parliament.

He asserted that because Ugandans were not allowed to move during the lockdown, when he attempted to go to parliament to raise his complaint against one of the appointees, he was seriously clobbered by security operatives in uniform at Wandegeya a Kampala suburb.

He added that he tried again to challenge the legal declaration of the lockdown without a legal statuary instrument signed by the Minister of Health but his case was removed from the court records on orders of Dr. Andrew Byabashaija the head of High Court Civil Division which was also illegal.

In their defense, the Attorney General insisted that the president has powers to appoint a person to hold or act in any office in the public service of Uganda at the rank of head of department or above including their removal.

He insisted that  Abodo was appointed by the president on the recommendations of the public service commission and with the approval of the parliament. He told court that the person is not qualified to be appointed DPP unless he or she is qualified to be appointed a judge of the High Court.

While defending security forces for stopping Mabirizi, the AG argued that the function of the security forces is to cooperate with the civilian authorities in emergency situations and by stopping Mabirizi, they were implementing the presidential directives against COVID19.

He told court that the President issued the directives to control the spread of COVID19 under the statutory instrument issued by the health minister under the public health Act.

We Have Not Sent You: Buganda Youths Warn Promoter Abtex On Leading Demo To Gashumba’s Home Over Attack On Katikkiro Mayiga ….

Kasolo Walusimbi (R) and Abtex (inset)

Buganda youth under their umbrella ‘Bazzukulu ba Buganda  international’ have warned events promoter Abbey Musinguzi alias Abtex on his planned move to demonstrate at the home of city businessman Frank Gashumba over his misunderstanding with Buganda premier Charles Peter Mayiga.

Speaking to his fellow Bazzukulu at Mengo, Kasolo Walusimbi, the chairperson of the association said that they will not accept non Baganda to be used by some kingdom officials to use Buganda Kingdom name to fight their personal battles.

He challenged Musinguzi to reveal the names of Baganda who asked him to fight on their behalf.

“We are tired of people who are facilitated by our oppressors to frustrate Buganda interests, we don’t agree with the way Gashumba responded to Katikiiro because he is a leader of the kingdom but we also condemn the way the Katikkiro attacks and embarrass Kabaka’s subjects publicly,” Kasolo said.

He further revealed that the reason why Musinguzi is fighting for Mayiga is he wants to be given back the contracts to organize the kingdom’s festivals like Enkuuka and Masaza cup tournament which were given to National Resistance Movement (NRM) party mobiliser Balaam Barugahara.

Kasolo added that the people of Buganda have suffered because of strange agreements signed between Mayiga’s administration and the central government without thorough consultation from Buganda people.

When contacted, Abtex rubbished Kasolo’s allegations adding that he is no longer interested in organizing Buganda festivals.

He said that since he is a Munyankole living in Buganda, he is grateful with Buganda hospitality and he cannot just sit down and look on when the likes of Gashumba are humiliating the kingdom’s administrators.

He declared a war on Gashumba to put him to order.

He revealed that preparations are in high gear to storm Gashumba’s home this Wednesday.

He boasted that he has worked so much for Buganda unlike people like Kasolo who want to make a name for themselves by attacking him.
