    Uganda Is A Dead Country Full Of Thieves Who Should Be Lined Up At City Square And Fired 300 Bullets In The Stomach – Media Analyst Warns




    Media analyst Basajja Mivule has warned that Uganda is a dead country filled with thieves who steal even the little that would have helped the poor.

    Speaking on NBS Eagle show, where him and FDC’s Harold Kaija were hosted by Simon Muyanga Lutaaya, Mivule warned that it will be very hard for Uganda to survive the looming economic crisis because the three government agencies that are supposed to lead in securing the future of Ugandans politically and economically are the most corrupt.

    “You kill someone who steals chicken and you forgive one who steals millions from the country? They should be lined up at City squared and fired 300 bullets in the stomach. The institutions that are supposed to help Ugandans are the most corrupt. In 2015 the Afro barometer together with transparency international released a report showing that Ugandan police is the most corrupt organization in all the five East African countries and the most corrupt institution in Uganda, in second place is Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) and the judges and government officials tie in third place.

    Now listen to this, when URA collects taxes they first steal a certain percentage according to the report, what remains is what they send to government, which has the thieves in 3rd place (government officials), who also steal a certain percentage.

    Now when they are arrested, police, which is in first place (most corrupt) is supposed to carry out investigations

    They arrest the thief in third place and take him for trial to the institution (judiciary) in second place.  So, how do you expect the corrupt to probe each other? God come down and save this country,” Mivule cried out.

    Mivule said that because of the corruption in these vital institutions, this country cannot survive the economic crisis it is currently grappling in.

    “We are in the world of the dead, Uganda is a dead country. Uganda’s problem is not taxes, there is a lot of money here. But our leaders steal everything that is collected, even the little that would help Ugandans.

    These people are even going to tax us for the air we breathe, they are going to start taxing us for not tucking in. These guys are over taxing us, stealing the money and keeping it for themselves.”

    “Let me give you an example, they gave police 200bn to buy a machine that will help URA monitor telecom companies and know the volume of airtime they sell so that they can levy the right amount of taxes because URA has no capacity to know whether the telecom companies are under declaring or paying the right taxes. Surprisingly, the machine they brought was not working.

    Another example is when the ICT minister Aidah Nantaba said that she has failed to trace over 35bn meant to be given to the youth. The money was swindled.

    I will give you another example, Museveni recently said that he had given 60bn to the youth development programme. I went to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and asked the officials there where the money that the president gave to the youth was because the youth were not getting it.

    I asked them why they were sending the youths to banks which were asking for land titles from them as collateral. Where would a person who has just finished s6 get a title from?

    The officials told me that as soon as the president released the money, some officials asked for the money and they returned it to government.

    The officials plainly told me that it was a ‘kiwaani’ (lie).  That money wasn’t meant to be given to the youth, some people wanted to use the youth as an excuse to steal money.”

    “The issue is not tax collection, Uganda collects enough money but the government officials steal the it.

    President Museveni should emulate other countries by arresting these thieves who are stealing tax payer’s money.

    A police officer in a poor country like Uganda is richer than a police officer in America. I know of a police officer who earns 800,000 shillings monthly but has just built a 700million mansion, this officer has another house worth 300 million. Most commissioners in police are filthy rich. They are richer than their American colleagues.  President Museveni should start by probing such officials.

    Where do his ministers get all those riches to construct such mega building when what they earn so little?

    Which president does not ask these people (where they get their money). That is why we are going to arrest these men.

    We are warning everyone protecting Uganda’s boarders that when the time comes for us to chase these people (and capture them and what they have stolen) not to open the boarders for them to escape because we need to hold them accountable,” Mivule charged.



    Why NUP Want Dead Body Of Bobi Wine’s Bodyguard Exhumed; Mpuuga Set To Make More Demands…



    Bobi Wine (R) with the late Ssenteza (L)

    The Opposition in Parliament lead by the Leader of Opposition in Parliament (LOP) Mathias Mpuuga Nsamba on Tuesday are set to task Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafiire the Internal Affairs senior minister to give a detailed report concerning the circumstances that caused the death of Francis Kalibbala Ssenteza the former bodyguard to National Unity Platform (NUP) Principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine).

    Shadow Finance minister and also Butambala County legislator Muhammad Muwanga Kivumbi told theGrapevine that they were not convinced with Gen. Otafiire’s report and they are going to give the country a response through Mpuuga on the floor of Parliament.

    Kivumbi said that among the issues they want explained is the way Ssenteza was killed in a motor accident because Gen. Otafiire’s report claims that he was knocked by Bobi Wine’s Toyota Hiace which he used during the 2021 presidential campaigns.

    He narrated that Gen. Otafiire who signed the Statement, even though it was read by his State Minister Gen. David Muhoozi confirmed that at the scene of crime, there was a military vehicle.

    He added that government intentionally refused to carry out a postmortem report on Ssenteza’s dead body because they feared that it would reveal the cause of his death.

    “He stated that NUP supporters run away with the dead body and it is the reason they gave why they didn’t make a postmortem report but all of us know very well that the State has the capacity to exhume a body and carry out an autopsy because we cannot allow a person to die in such circumstances not subject his body to a postmortem,” Kivumbi said.

    Ssenteza, who was a carpenter at Mulago ku Biiri along Bombo road was knocked dead at Busega roundabout and buried in December of 2020 at his ancestral home in Masaka district.

    Kivumbi added that another explanation they want from Otafire is the circumstances under which Bobi Wine supporter Ritah Nabukenya died in a motor accident.

    He said that Otafire confirmed that Nabukenya was knocked by a speeding police patrol at Nakawa a Kampala city suburb and the driver of the patrol was arrested but the Director for Public Prosecution (DPP) Justice Jane Frances Abodo declined to sanction the file on grounds that it did not have supporting evidence.

    He insisted that the evidence was there but the file was not sanctioned on political grounds.

    However when contacted, Gen. Otafiire boasted that he is ready to face Mpuuga in parliament and he will answer all his questions on the floor of parliament because he will be there himself, not his junior minister.

    Highly placed sources in the LOP’s office told theGrapevine that immediately after Mpuuga makes his response, he will table fresh demands.

    They will include demands for an explanation on the arrest and humiliation of Muslim clerics and the issue of Balalo in northern Uganda particularly in Acholi.

    But Otafiire said that once the new demands are raised, he will ask the presiding speaker to give him more time to investigate the allegation and report back as he did with the first demands.

    OPINION:  Bigirwa Successfully Deletes NUP From Political Map In Busoga…



    Bigirwa (C) salutes Bobi Wine (L). On the right is the writer George Mubiru

    As the elders say, “He who rushes ahead doesn’t reach far.” This proverb explains exactly why Bobi Wine’s National Unity Platform (NUP) rapidly conquered Busoga but drastically seem to have lost it within a twinkle of an eye.

    This has also justified the saying that; “A chick that will grow into a cock can be spotted the very day it is hatched.”

    NUP’s egg will never hatch. The recently concluded memorable royal wedding, which Basoga and the friends of Busoga adhored and witnessed exposed the ill  intentions of NUP towards Busoga.

    In an alleged audio conversation between Bigirwa and the mysterious woman whose efforts were focused on failing the royal wedding, Bigirwa talks about how they (he and his president)  faked the 10M contribution delivery to the Busoga premier as a stunt and PR for the party but they did not do it out of love for Busoga.

    This shocked Basoga and opened their eyes to know how exactly NUP feels about BUSOGA.

    The ill intentions of NUP towards Busoga was further exposed after the royal wedding when Bajjo appeared on one of the Kampala based FM radio stations where he falsely insulted and accused Busoga kingdom that they didn’t invite NUP yet there were NUP officials who attended the function like MP Manjeri Kyebakutika, Swengere, Hassan Muwanga, etc.

    He went ahead to demand for the refund of the money NUP contributed towards the royal wedding.

    As if that was not enough, there are so many bloggers and TikTokers who have continuously abused the king and Basoga using Luganda language as well as attaching themselves to NUP and Bobi Wine. Neither the NUP principal nor the party leaders have come out to disassociate themselves and the party from such individuals, maybe as a sign that they support them.

    To redeem themselves, the party leadership sat and demoted Bigirwa from his position as coordinator eastern region, a move which rubber-stamp their guilt.

    In a dramatic turn of events, Bigirwa has vowed not to drown alone. He has promised to expose the true version of NUP and expose all their misdeeds.

    Nothing disturbs me more than the glorification of stupidity against our culture because of their selfishness interests.

    What’s the significance of all the above?

    In a court of fowls, the cockroach never wins his case. NUP loses; NRM and President Museveni win again.

    1.If you shut out the truth and bury it under the ground, it will grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through, it will blow up everything in its way. Basoga have realized that NUP and Bobi Wine are their enemies. They were hoodwinked by Bobi Wine and given time, the truth has unfolded. After all, how easy is it to make people believe a lie, and how hard is it to undo that work again.

    2.Why is the Guinea fowl not used in rituals despite it’s beauty. The simple answer is in alignment with the popular axiom: “All that glitters is not gold.” Majority of the population in Busoga are so much aggrieved by such actions and have vowed not to support NUP and Bobi Wine anymore. They believe that they have been rediculed enough and have discovered the initial deception of Bobi Wine.

    1. Some Basoga are ready to refund the 10m NUP contributed towards the function as demanded by BAJJO.
    2. If a musoga says NO, he means it. It’s point clear that they have dustbined Bobi Wine and NUP.
    3. NUP is built on opportunism, sectarianism, tribalism and hypocrisy. They are self seekers and therefore the so called struggle is built for personal gains. How ironically it is, they want to reap fat cheques without due work done.

    The reason why president Museveni has remained relevant politically for the last 60 years, is because he takes the line between Uganda and Africa, he doesn’t look at identity. The big problem in Uganda before him was bad politics which he solved immediately.

    As usual, patience is the companion of wisdom, general Museveni will undoubtedly reclaim Busoga in 2026 with a resounding victory. As iron is eaten away by rust, so the envious are consumed by their own passion.

    FDC’s Nsibambi Threatens To Resign From His MP Seat If Ssemujju Tables Evidence Exposing His Dealings With M7…



    Yusuf Nsibambi (L) and Semujju Nganda (R)

    Yusuf Nsibambi, the Mawokota South legislator who also doubles as the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Chief Whip in parliament has threatened to resign his two political positions if Kira Municipality Member of Parliament Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda tables evidence supporting his allegations that he has been having secret dealings with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s government.

    Ssemujju claimed that Nsibambi shocked him when he discovered that the man he has been respecting for a long time as a university law don and the former chairperson of Kampala District Land Board is a mafia.

    He alleged that he has evidence showing that when parliamentary committees made majority and minority reports, Nsibambi always signed on both reports.

    He disclosed that Nsibambi always signed the majority report to show President Museveni that he supports him but also signed the minority report to show that he is supporting the opposition in parliament.

    He added that from then on, he lost trust in Nsibambi and it was the reason why he was not shocked when he decided to attend parliament plenary when the Leader of Opposition in parliament Mathias Mpuuga Nsamba directed them not to attend until president Museveni’s government gives parliament a detailed report on the status of the opposition supporters who are missing.

    However, Nsibambi put Ssemujju on notice to provide proof to support his allegations, promising to resign if he tables the evidence.

    He accused Ssemujju of being one of the new breed of politicians who have mastered the art of playing malice and blackmail politics.

    He said that Ssemujju is using the opposition parliament plenary boycott to carry out his revenge on him after he was dismissed from the office of FDC Chief Whip in parliament.

    He advised opposition leadership in parliament to avoid using the boycott to fight personal battles like Ssemujju is doing because they are dealing with President Museveni who spends over 18 hours a day only thinking about politics.
