UNTOLD STORY: How Minister Kibuule Ordered For The Arrest Of Wife Blaming Her For His Twins Death In Heated Family Meeting



There was tension at the home of the Minister for Water and Environment Hon. Ronald Kibuule who also doubles as the Mukono North Member of Parliament when he ordered the arrest and squeezing of his wife over the death of his lovely twins.

A credible source who attended the secret family meeting held in one of the rooms in Minister Kibuule’s posh house in Mbalala, to discuss the steps to be immediately taken to investigate the culprits involved in the sudden death of Rayden Kato and Raymond Wasswa , told the Grapevine that  Minister Kibuule surprised other government officials and members of the clergy when he ordered for the arrest of his wife Fortunate Alindinda Kibuule Nnaalongo.

Minister Kibuule speaking to mourners

Kibuule explained that his wife was at home the entire day and he had information that during the day, she even went swimming in the swimming pool that later took the life of his two twin sons. In the meeting, Kibuule wondered why she didn’t take good care of the kids and monitor where they were. The nonsense Minister even raised his voice and ordered CID director Grace Akullo who was also in the meeting with other police operatives both from Mukono police and detectives from Kibuli CID headquarters to arrest his wife immediately.

Government Chief Whip Ruth Nakabirwa later calmed Kibuule down and pleaded with him not to lose his temper because his wife is also mourning just like him being the mother of the deceased.

Akullo also told Kibuule that they cannot arrest the wife because she is still in grief. Other religious leaders like pastor Henry Nyanzi of Seeta Victory church and pastor Samuel Lwandasa of the Mt. Lebanon church also calmed the minister down. Pastor Nyanzi was heard telling Kibuule that he has to accept God’s will. He asked him to praise God for the life of his kids. Nakabirwa also told Kibuule to respect his wife instead of humiliating her before the public in such a trying moment. Nakabirwa also advised Akullo not to think about taking Kibuule’s wife to Police. Kibuule’s young brother later came to Fortunate’s rescue when he told the meeting that she spent the entire day at their construction site and refuted claims that she was at home.

The religious leaders also pleaded with Kibuule to calm down and give space to police to do its work. Sources further told the Grapevine that the meeting also decided that police should arrest Peace Nakunda, a housemaid, Scovia Nabubwema, also housemaid, Lawrence Kibaya, a shamba boy and Agripa Kamanya, a security officer at Kibuule’s home. Deputy police spokesperson Patrick Onyango confirmed the arrest and stated that very soon the prosecution file will be sent to the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) for sanction.


Many residents Kasenge village, Mbalala Nama sub county, Mukono District were not convinced with the explanation given to them by the eye witnesses and the minister’s family members.

Some resident cited witchcraft in the death of Kibuule’s children.

Our reporter who attended the vigil overheard locals saying that Kibuule has angered many people and some even cursed him before his boss the president when he visited Kirangira village in Mukono North constituency recently. The residents were accusing the minister of conniving with tycoons who demolished their homes and evicted them from their land. They allege that the minister was behind their eviction because he wanted the land to be given to Chinese investors to set up factories.

Some residents allege that it might be the furious victims who sent Kibuule witchcraft that took his two sons. It must be remembered that Mukono district is one of the areas where witchcraft is practiced day and night.

Others mourners revealed to this website that Kibuule’s kids are not the first to die in the very swimming pool. They told us that during the NRM party primaries, one of Kibuule’s supporters was found dead in that very pool, some told us that he was jubilating after his candidate Kibuule defeated Kenneth Nsubuga who was eyeing to stand on the NRM party ticket in Mukono North. However, some residents refuted the witchcraft claims saying that it’s Kibuule’s ignorance of not covering the killer swimming pool. The residents are still debating the matter and some have started to use it for political benefit by asking for a sympathy vote for Kibuule. They are asking locals to vote for the minister in the next election as a way of consoling him for the loss.

Stop Debating MP’s OTT, Concentrate On Where The Money To Finance Next Year’s Budget Is Going To Come From – MP Nambooze



Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze Bakireke has cautioned Ugandans to stop concentrating on small diversionary matters like MP’s OTT and instead focus on where the money to finance next year’s financial budget is going to come from.

Below is Nambooze’s Facebook post:

When MPs were given iPads, I felt that it wasn’t necessary and hence I don’t use one. The ongoing OTT hullabaloo has nothing to do with Nambooze. I have my own gadgets and I service them…I can’t use Parliamentary iPads that are on one central server and I believe in teaching myself to live- off free things.

But still I am surprised at the way Ugandans behave….as a Country we pick on small matters sentionalise them, become cynical and get diverted from the most important things! And we opposition Politicians are not innocent at all we are guilty of ridding on excitement created by the media and doing so little in guiding public debate.

Now,apart from diverting society what is in 36000/- to a member of Parliament AND what is in 110 million to Uganda? What if every MP pays his/her OTT or what if Parliament picks the bill.I mean what is big about this matter whichever way it goes? Suppose Parliament drops this expenditure as they are likely to do,will that turn the next budget into a prudent and fair economic plan?

The important matter remains leveling a tax on social media use;it’s unfair and a primitive tax. At the moment government would be telling us how much they collected from OTT in it’s first year and how the funds from this new tax we’re utilised.

Two, the 2019/2020 bugdet is being projected at 34,trillions.Ugandans would be interesting themselves in knowing where this money is to come from.

The Health budget is reducing from Shs2.3 trillion to Shs2.2 trillion.

Education is equally in facing a cut from Shs2.7 trillion from shs2.6 trillion.

Ministry of Works has increased its claim from Shs4.7 trillion to Shs5.3 trillion, maintaining their lead in allocations.

Treasury operations, which deals with domestic debt refinancing, still takes a total of Shs9.5 trillion, which must worry everybody.

There is need to drastically restructure government agencies to curb sagging expenditure and relocate funds to sectors that benefit our people. In 2017, government announced merger of its agencies to improve efficiency and end duplication of roles; why isn’t this being inplemented?

On Security, which is classified expenditure, the budget is giving them Shs1.9 trillion while Agriculture is getting only Shs919.8 billion. Uganda is not at war,why put more money in security than Agriculture?

Shouldn’t the debate be about these important matters instead of the diversionary MP’s OTT?

Another Source from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has told this website that the government of Uganda has spent over shs100m on the process of extraditing Pato. He told us that the DPP’s office last spent such huge amounts of money during the Jamil Mukulu extradition from Tazania.

President Museveni himself revealed that he had to talk to his counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa, the president of South Africa about Pato’s criminality.

Pato is accused with 8 others of Kidnaping and killing Suzan Magara who was the administrator of the family businesses as well as a cashier for Bwendo Dairy Farm in Hoima. The suspects after being paid ransom of shs700m from the family of the diseased, even after the president had at first refused them to pay the ransom went ahead and killed Magara. Magara was murdered and her body was dumped on Entebbe express high way.
