    Government spokesperson, Ofwono Opondo has insisted that security under president Yoweri Museveni is tight despite “a few” insecurity cases.

    According to Opondo, the incident in which Gen. Katumba Wamala was attacked by assailants and shot in his arms is a one-off,  but highlighted because it is high profile.

    In the assassination plot that saw the four star UPDF General’s daughter and driver both death with bullet wounds, Opondo sees it as no reason for panic.

    “We should say as Ugandans, we want to live with freedom and safety. Bit you should remember that even in the most developed countries, big people have been shot. The President of the United States, J. F Kennedy was shot,” Opondo stated.

    Opondo noted that Gen. Katumba chose to have light security especially in public but he has lead security, including that day, they were not with him.

    “Some pigs may be still roaming. Insecurity is not the dominant feature. The state has the capability,” Opondo stated.

    “People fly here to enjoy the nightlife. You can’t make a sweeping statement that Uganda is not safe. Uganda is very safe under Yoweri Museveni Tibuhaburwa. We should not alarm Ugandans,” journalist Margaret Muhanga stated.

    “There are very few countries with no crimes for example the Scandinavian countries,” she added.

    She noted that in the US, they have failed to do gun control and killings. “Here it is not common that someone will have a gun. But because we have porous borders, illegal guns are sold,” she noted.

    Mwenda Narrates How Intelligence Advised M7 To Fire Kagame Girl Who Prepares His Bedroom….

    Celebrated veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda has narrated how intelligence advised President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to fire president Paul Kagame’s girl to save his life.

    Mwenda revealed that when the misunderstanding between Rwanda and Uganda was at its peak, with each nation accusing the other of espionage, intelligence operatives advised President Museveni to fire all his assistants of Rwandan descent.

    Mwenda said that among the people that intelligence wanted to be removed from the state house was the beautiful Munyarwanda woman who has been in charge of President Museveni’s bedroom for a long time.

    He added that after reading a strongly worded intelligence report, Museveni took his time to interrogate the dossier and he took a strong decision which hurt his intelligence team by refusing to fire his assistants.

    While moderating ‘The hot seat’ talk show on KFM radio on Friday, Mwenda explained that Museveni trusts Rwandese more than Ugandans that’s why all the people surrounding him are Banyarwanda.

    It is on this note that Mwenda wondered why the President does not come out to rescue Rwandans from the ongoing harassment from country’s immigration department.

    He revealed that he has investigated and established that these people are facing a lot of hardships to get passports and National identity cards.

    He said that many of the people who have Rwanda like name are stateless because Uganda refused to give them passports and National Identity cards yet they cannot go to Rwanda because they were born in Uganda and all are parents have lived, died and have been buried in Uganda.

    Mwenda gave an example of Ritah Kanya, a news anchor with NTV Uganda and wife to senior investigative journalist Raymond Mujuni who is currently stateless because both her National Identity card and passports were canceled at the Immigration over her Rwandan roots.

    He insisted that Kanya was born in Uganda in Kisoro district and his grandfather was a sub county chief, so it is wrong to declare her stateless.

    He pleaded with President Museveni to intervene in the matter because National Unity Platform(NUP) supporters are also threatening Banyarwanda that when they take power, they will be sent back to their country.

    Land forces commander and also first son, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba led the Uganda-Rwanda negotiations which resulted in the reopening of the Katuna border which was closed by president Kagame in 2017 on allegations of mistreating Rwandese in Uganda.

    Lt. Gen. Muhoozi revealed through twitter that very soon, he is going to travel to Rwanda to meet his loving uncle.

    Efforts to reach Simon Peter Mundeyi, the immigration spokesperson, were fruitless because his known phone numbers were not going through.

    According to police mouthpiece, Fred Enanga, the summon was sent through the office of the Rt. Hon. Anitah Among to appear at CID Headquarters on October 4th 2022, at 10 am.

    He revealed that Hon. Alioni Yorke Odria is alleged to have acted in a disorderly manner on 29th September, 2022 in Parliament where he attacked and punched a police officer who was on duty without any legal justification.

    It should be remembered that on September 29th, at about midday, Mr. Alioni Yorke Odria stormed the House with a ballot box of pre-ticked ballot papers and accused some individuals of ballot stuffing and rigging the elections.

    Alioni insisted, “There is rigging happening here. Vote rigging! Vote rigging. I am ready to die. The ballot boxes have been stuffed.”

    Moments later, he punched a police officer on the neck. The officer quietly walked away from the legislator.

    Hon. Odria then hurriedly walked off to Parliament’s South parking lot where a team was setting up ballot boxes [under a tent] that were to be utilised later for the voting exercise.

    “Media should stay here because there is rigging taking place,” Hon. Odria said. He eventually walked away.
