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.

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



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.
