    Uganda’s Opposition Don’t Want To Remove M7, He Even Knows That They Are A Bunch Of Jokers, Comedians And Money Makers – Former State House Spy Warns…



    L-R: Rwomushana, opposition big wigs Besigye and Bobi Wine and NRM's David Kabanda

    Celebrated political analyst Charles Rwomushana has warned Ugandans to stop having a lot of hope in the current opposition because President Museveni knows that they are a bunch of jokers and money makers.

    Appearing on NBS TV’s Barometer extra, the presidential aspirant revealed that Museveni and his family understand what power means more than many opposition bigwigs that’s why he warned them that no one will just take away the power he captured as they wish.

    He noted that Museveni was very clever, when he took power, he made laws which protect his seat especially from the late Milton Obote who he feared that he could come back to Uganda and contest for presidency.

    Rwomushana, a former Makerere University Guild President insisted that in Uganda there is no opposition because if it was there, the Museveni he knows would have dealt with them, he could not even allow them to access media.

    Rwomushana said that because Museveni understands that most people who want to unseat him are jokers and comedians, he only uses them to legitimize his government.

    He disclosed that he participated in the stealing of votes during 2001 general elections, and after stealing votes in villages, they left the opposition to win in the city center and municipalities.

    He further warned the opposition to stop pressurizing Museveni to declare a state of emergency in the country because if he does, they will end up losing even the little they have.

    “I am telling you the Museveni I know, he will declare a state of emergency in Kampala, Wakiso, Mukono, Masaka and other cities and leave upcountry areas free. This means that the people in the villages who are his staunch supporters will vote in 2021 general elections and those in the city will not vote because he knows very well that they don’t support him,” Rwomushana noted.

    Rwamushana however gave the opposition three options if they want Museveni out of power.

    The first option according to Rwomushana was for people to pour on the streets and riot.

    Once they do this, Museveni will not kill them because he fears facing the international human rights organizations who may recommend that he is charged before international courts and the only option for him will be to run in exile.

    The second option according to Rwomushana is to arrest Museveni like what happen to Sudan President Omar Bashir.

    Rwomushana said that the last option the opposition has is to convince or force Museveni to retire to his country home in Rwakitura.

    Rwomushana guided that once Museveni is forced to retire, they should make sure that he does not interfere in the political affairs of the country like he did to the late Milton Opeto Obote, the former president of Uganda.

    He boasted that he is very serious about his presidential bid because he knows very well where the power which he has come to take lies and he is ready for any eventualities he will face like any other opposition member.

    Rwomushana was supported by David Kabanda, the Kasambye county aspirant Member of Parliament who said that the opposition have kept Museveni in power.

    He reminded the opposition that in 1980 when Museveni declared that the elections were not free and fair, even his MP Crispus Kiyonga who won the parliamentary seat didn’t swear to enter parliament but decided to go to the bush.

    Kabanda said that what happens in today’s opposition is when the opposition presidential candidate losses in an election citing electoral malpractices, he only cries alone, his colleagues who win MP seats go to parliament and start making money.

    He added that right now, the opposition are telling Museveni to declare a state of emergency and threatening that if it’s not done, they will not participate in a scientific election but these same MPs are secretly printing posters, buying masks and other campaign materials.

    He further revealed that many of the opposition members have even bought sugar, soap and other commodities which they are going to distribute to their voters during campaigns.

    He explained that others don’t want the election to take place and are on Museveni’s neck to declare a state of emergency because they fear there is a likelihood of them losing their political offices.

    However, people’s government spokesperson and also Mukono municipality member of parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke branded Rwomushana and Kabanda’s submissions as blackmail.

    Nambooze insisted that Ugandans should not participate in a scientific election because Museveni and his NRM party want to use it to steal votes and remain in power.

    Why Money Lender Is Auctioning Bitature’s Multibillion Posh Hotels, Tycoon’s Lawyers Reveals Next Step…



    Tycoon Bitature (Top R) and some of the properties that the money lender wants to take

    Vantage Mezzanine Fund 11 Partners, a South Africa money lending company through their lawyers of M/S Kirunda & Wasige Advocates have hired the services of Quickway Auctioneers & Court Bailiffs to auction properties worth billions belonging to city tycoon Patrick Bitature, the proprietor of the Simba Properties Investments Companies Limited.

    In an Advert placed in Wednesday’s Daily Monitor newspaper, the Court Bailiffs informed the debtor Bitature that he has only 30 days to pay the amount of money with interests borrowed from their client otherwise his properties will be sold off through auctioning.

    Among the properties which the set to be sold include Protea Hotel-Naguru (Skyz Hotel), Elizabeth Royal Apartments and Moyo Close Apartments.

    Bitature’s troubles started in 2014 when he secured a $10m loan from Vantage Mezzanine and he used the said properties as security.

    However, Bitature’s lawyer Fred Muwema rubbished the said auctioning claiming that it is illegal and violates the laws governing the auctioning process.

    The advert in today’s Daily Monitor auctioning Bitature’s properties

    The furious lawyer even threatened to sue the Daily Monitor for advertising illegal and malicious information against his client claiming that the matter was settled in Justice Musa Ssekaana’s ruling.

    He insisted that High Court judge Ssekana refused to allow the auctioning and advised both parties to wait for the pending judgement before the High Court Commercial Division in Kampala.

    Vantage Mezzanine dragged Uganda Registration Service Bureau (URSB), Simba Properties Investment Company Limited, Simba Telecom Limited, Linda Properties Limited, Elgon Terrace Hotel Limited to court for failing to transfer the mortgaged properties into their names.

    When Bitature failed to pay his loan, Vantage started the process of transferring the shares of the mortgaged properties but URSB refused to implement the process that is why they were also sued.

    In their suit, Vantage wanted a Court declaration that it was illegal for URSB to refuse to register documents lodged to transfer the mortgage.

    However, Bitature through his lawyers wants Court to declare that it was illegal for Vantage to register the transfer until the completion of the Commercial Court matter.

    An affidavit from Moses Muziki, on behalf of the applicant stated that on 18th June, 2021, the applicant lodged documents relating to the transfer of shares in Simba Properties Investments Company Limited, Simba Properties Limited, Linda Properties Limited and Elgon Terrace Hotel Limited.

    He added that the respondents did not comply with the law and did not provide the applicant with a satisfactory reason for not registering the shares and their lawyers learnt that the respondent’s lawyers were requesting to halt the process.

    “This Court would have issued an order of mandamus compelling the applicant’s request to consider the registration of their documents on merit or advance reasons for denial or refusal to register the same in accordance with the law,” the judge ruled.

    Muwema based on the above ground to protest the process of auctioning their client’s properties.

    Kabaka Mutebi, Tycoon Ham Kiggundu Kigo Land War Deepens As BLB Boss Faces Prosecution Over Conflict Of Interest …



    Tycoon Ham Kiggundu (L) and Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi (R). Inset is Bashir Juma

    Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi’s Kigo Land war with city tycoon Hamis Kiggundu, the proprietor of the Ham Enterprises Limited has deepened after Ham’s lawyers called for the prosecution of Buganda Land Board (BLB) boss Bashir Kizito Juma over conflict of interest.

    Kabaka through his lawyers led by Buganda Attorney Christopher Bwanika, lawyers from K&K Advocates and S&L Advocates petitioned the registrar Land Registration John Karuhanga seeking the cancellation of land titles Comprised on Kyadondo Block 273 plot 23974, 23976, 23975, 23977 and Kyadondo Block 273 plot 87,99, 110 situated at Kigo in Wakiso district.

    Kabaka asserted that he is the rightful owner of the land and accused Ham of fraudulently conniving with officers at Wakiso district land board to grab his land which he inherited from his father and grandfathers.

    He added that Ham admitted that he illegally obtained the land and accepted the cancellation which he strongly objected to in his defense before Karuhanga.

    In his defense, Ham, through his lawyers led by Fred Muwema contended that he is the owner of the land after he legally obtained it from Wakiso district land board.

    He claimed that the survey report which Kabaka Mutebi based on to argue his case is fake since it is not even dated and that’s the reason why he appointed a private surveyor William Matovu to conduct another survey report which contradicted with that of the Kabaka. He promised to present it to the registrar.

    He pleaded to the registrar not to base on the testimony of Bashir Kizito Juma, the legal Attorney to Kabaka because he has a conflict of interest in the matter.

    “Our contention is that there is an actual conflict of interest in the duties of Bashir Kizito Juma acting both as a public officer and a private officer of the complainant,” Ham’s lawyers said.

    They added, “This type of conduct by Bashir Kizito Juma is against the Code of Conduct and Ethics of Public Service issued under the Public Standing Orders 2010.”

    They divulged that conflict of interest is a punishable crime in Uganda especially where a public officer holds a position in a private body whose operations are in conflict with his official duties.

    He added that the irony of the matter is that the freehold titles were granted by the Wakiso District Land, which employs Bashir Kizito Juma which means that he is both a witness and the architect of the complaint.

    “This tribunal can therefore not entertain this conflict of public officers to pursue a conflicted complaint which derogates all best practice in public law. In our considered view, entertaining this complaint as presently filed is to perpetuate illegality and a constitutionally prohibited act,” they stated.

    Ham pleaded with Karuhanga’s tribunal to dismiss the complaint and declare him the rightful owner of the said land.

    Bashir Kizito Juma is the head Corporate affairs, operations and business development at Buganda Land Board (BLB), a corporate body that runs the kingdom’s land.

    Karuhanga is set to declare his team’s decision this week.
