We Shall Soon Expose What Is Hidden In This MAFIA Versus MAFIA War – Mukono MP Betty Nambooze Warns Anite, Says They Are Investigating The MAFIA Who Stole From UPTC

Published

on

Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze has warned the State Minister for Privatisation and Investment, Evelyn Anite that very soon, as the Shadow Minister for Information, Communication and Telecommunication, she is going to present before parliament the mafia who shared properties belonging to Uganda posts and Telecommunication Corporation (UPTC).

UPTC was later split into Posta Uganda and Uganda Telecom Limited (UTL).

This week, a whistleblower wrote to the IGG claiming that Anite’s fight with UTL administrator Bamanya was  fueled by the fact that Bamanya had offered the deal to invest in UTL to Teleology holdings limited which had offered USD70m compared to the Mauritius Telecom limited which had offered USD45m for the assets of the limping Uganda Telecom Limited.

The IGG Public Relations Officer (PRO), Ali Munira, when contacted by this website confirmed receipt of the whistler’s dossier and said, “It true we have received the complaint against honourable Anite and the file is being handled by the deputy Inspector General of government (Geroge Bamugemereire the husband to land probe boss Catherine Bamugemereire).”

Anite addressing the press today

Today morning, Minister Evelyn Anite called a press conference at the Ministry of Finance offices in Kampala and warned that the mafia are trying to frustrate her efforts to clean up the mess at UTL. Anite said, “I have no relationship with Mauritius telecom company. The report by financial intelligence is what prompted me to support them. My name has been tarnished but I have to continue fighting for the truth. The plan by the mafias is to take Anite out of the picture, I might die but history will judge them. you know the mafias; they are the ones who have been blocking the audit. These mafias are not jokers. go and ask Abiriga. I will die with my mouth open, i will die while shouting the mafias are coming until they take me down. They are tapping my phone, I hear their voices when i pick my phone,” Anite said.

She said, “My issue is that the telecom has to be saved, whether abimanya is in or out. i have struggled to save that company three times, the first time we argued with attorney generals, they said we must liquidate it. private lawyers argued the case against liquidation, and we won.”

MAFIA VERSUS MAFIA WAR – NAMBOOZE

In a post on his Facebook page, Nambooze warned the Mafia including Anite that, “This Week in our capacity as Shadow Minister for Information, Communication and Telecommunication we embark on and shall put a touch on defunct Uganda posts and Telecommunication Corporation (UPTC). Of specific interest as a way of starting off a series of presentations before Parliament on this matter, we shall demand for payment of terminal benefits, pension package and court awards to 823 former employees of this parastal totalling to 10,000,000,000/=”

She added, “I understand that Anite is shopping for new buyers of this corporation and the fight with her colleagues, she categorizes as Mafias is all about sharing the spoils in this formerly very rich Corparation….Land, telecommunication installations, buildings, Motor vehicles all were lost. For those people who know where the Watoto Tent church is situated at Kazinga is an example of the UPTC prime properties that were shared out. We are doing our independent investigations and we shall soon expose what is hidden in this MAFIA versus MAFIA War.”

Published

on

On his way to work today, His Excellency, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president of Uganda for the very first time visited the site of the recently demolished St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba.
The President expressed his sorrow triggered by the ugly incident, and gave the church assurances that whoever is responsible will pay a hefty price.
Museveni stressed that the resolution to order the demolition of a church was extreme, he suggested that dialogue amongst the stakeholders would have been most appropriate to resolve the matter, however much the church could have been caught on the wrong side of the law.
“Judges should have limits and understand public interest. Demolishing a church is a curse,” the president said, warning the general public against believing any false reports that the government is responsible for demolishing the said church.
Museveni revealed that he will very soon invite the Namirembe Diocese Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, and engage with all parties involved in this conflict to find a lasting solution.
He gave assurance that the Church will retain the disputed land at all costs, and an even better church shall be erected in the same place, publicly declaring that he has now personally involved himself in the bitter land wrangle.

Our Mass Defection Was A Collective Decision – MP Nambooze…

Published

on

Democratic Party (DP) president, Norbert Mao has assured party members that they are still standing strong even after many of their senior members defected to Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine’s National Unity Party (NUP).

The studious politician likened DP’s current situation to a farmer who loses his crops, but remains with the seeds, hinting on replanting.

While appearing on the Frontline, a political talk show on NBS, Mao said the DP will utilise this uncertainty that has befallen their party to not only heal, but also renew and rebuild their DP house.

“DP will have to look inside itself and look for the reason as to why it has been resilient for 65 years. It is time for strategic reorientation, to look at our strengths rather than our weaknesses,” Mao said, emphasizing that they (DP) are so capable of rebuilding the party.

Mao stressed that trying times like now call for calmness, and that DP will now focus on its strengths and what has remained rather than lament on its weaknesses.

The lawyer also admitted that the MPs who defected might leave political wounds to the party, but added that they will heal and so will DP.

“They might leave scars, but they eventually heal. And gaps can always be filled. Every organization must have an inbuilt capacity to heal and renew itself.

Some people have lost both hands, but life doesn’t end there. Infact, you can find your purpose from there,” Mao said.

Betty Nambooze, one of the former key members who defected to NUP insinuated that they conveniently made the healthiest decision for them and their former party where they have been the trouble causers, adding that the transfer will now also give them an opportunity to go where they shall be utilized, because they are appreciated.

The Mukono Municipality lawmaker also revealed that their resolution to massively withdraw from DP to NUP was more collective than personal.

The outspoken journalist cum politician revealed that she could not follow her close colleague Erias Lukwago the Kampala Lord Mayor to Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) because she has never fancied being a member of the Najjanankumbi based party.

She however said that she will support Lukwago for the Kampala mayoral seat, and not NUP’s Joseph Mayanja aka Chameleon.
