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

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.”

I Have Been Forging Documents Since My Childhood: Former URA Staff Boasts Before Bamugemereire

Published

Semanda before the land probe

Former Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) staff Steven Semanda boasted before Justice Catherine Bamugemereire’s land probe that he has been a forgery expert since his childhood.

Semanda testified that he has on several occasions been charged in different courts and recorded a number of police statements on uttering forged documents.

“Yes, it’s true I have been making a lot of forgeries but much of the time it’s my friends who ask me to forge documents for them. My Lord, I also don’t want be named to be in such things,” Semanda said. He told the commission that the evil of uttering forged documents started when he was still a young man.

“It was foolish but I forged my father’s signature and withdrew his money from his bank account,” Semanda added. Justice Bamugemereire the chairperson of the commission asked him whether he was the one behind the forging of documents indicating that the 28 acres of land in Kitezi were owned by his brother Charles Mulinde.

Bamugemereire cited the testimony of Mulinde who told the commission that he never owned the contested land but one day, he received a phone call from Semanda asking him to meet and sign certain documents for him. Mulinde said that it was his other brother Apollo Lumu who stopped him from signing the said documents because he (Semanda) was targeting their father’s estate.  Mulinde further told the commission that Semanda was fired from URA after forging documents and embezzling a lot of money.

Semanda admitted that he forged the said documents but clarified that he did it under pressure from his brother Lumu who wanted to own their father’s land saying their elder brothers were not serious.  He denied proceeding with the process because his elder brother Dr. Fred Kambugu warned him to stop forging documents with the aim of stealing their family’s land.

Dr. Kambugu, the Kampala skin clinic boss ran to the commission claiming that there are people who fraudulently grabbed their father’s estate including their family members.

The commission is still investigating the matter.

Published

on

President Museveni’s former press secretary Joseph Tamale Mirundi has revealed that there are many signs showing that the mafias in president Museveni’s government are fighting each other over money and power.

“You know we intellectuals have information that mafias are fighting each other that is why dead bodies are now being thrown on the streets. Mafias here are very deadly and I’m telling you Uganda will end up like Somalia, they are going to kill themselves,” Mirundi, who was hosted on Pearl FM radio on Saturday said.

He noted that the mafias in Museveni’s government first fought and chased all the people who were loyal to Museveni under the guise of preventing them from stealing tax payers money. Mirundi said that by the time Museveni supporters like him, Ministry of Education Permanent Secretary Asuman Lukwago were kicked out, the mafias were working together.

Mirundi however said that their tormenters have now developed misunderstanding over money and power that’s why they are fighting each other.

The self-claimed media consultant and private investigator further revealed that the mafias in government have guns which they are using now to kill themselves, he gave an example of the gruesome murder of Joshua Nteyireho Ruhegyera and Mary Tumukunde who were gunned down on Entebbe express highway. Mirundi rubbished the arrests made by Uganda police and other security agencies over the current string of murders and kidnaps adding that the arrested suspects never committed these crimes.

I WANT HER TO VOMIT MY LAND: Mulago Hospital Doctor Drags Former Minister Maria Kiwanuka To Land Probe For Grabbing Her 9 Acres Of Land In Munyonyo…

Published

L-R: Nabukeera and former minister Maria Kiwanuka

The troubles befalling former finance minister who is also the general manager of Radio one, Akaboozi kubiiri Maria Rhoda Nabasirye Kiwanuka keep pilling each day.

A senior Mulago hospital doctor has now dragged her to the commission of inquiry into land matters for grabbing their 9 acres of land in Munyonyo Kampala.  Rhone Irene Lubega Nabukeera testified before the commission of inquiry into land matters that her father the late Solomon Lubega Byatike Matovu (60) bought 9 acres of land on Kyadondo Block 257 plot 5 from prince Alfred Kigaala, a son to fallen Buganda King, Sir Daudi Chwa in 1964.

“According to the agreement we found at the department of mapping and surveying in Entebbe, our father fully paid the money for the land and lodged a caveat on it to stop unscrupulous people from selling it again, unfortunately, he died before transferring the land into his names,” Nabukeera said.

She told the commission that as a family, they knew that their father left land in Munyonyo but they did not have the documentations until 2006 when a one Yusuf Mukasa, a friend to their late father brought to them the documents.

She said that they went to the registrar of land titles in the Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development to find out the status of their late father’s land. She narrated that at the ministry of lands, they were told that the ministry cannot locate their land because it was still in folios even though it was still caveated. They further advised them to consult Entebbe department of mapping and surveying.

She testified that at Entebbe, they carried out an investigation and found out that their land was subdivided was currently on Kyadondo Block 257 plot 5 and 433. Their findings further revealed that the land was registered in the names of Ambrose Wafumba in 1975.

Nabukeera with her lawyer before the commission

They further discovered that the land was transferred from Wafumba and registered in Alima investments Uganda limited which is owned by Maria Nabasirye Kiwana  Kiwanuka, Margate Kiwana, Nakato Mbekeka, Margate Ndibalekera and Janet Nkabidwa, the shareholders of Alima investments. She revealed that efforts to speak to the owners of Alima investments limited were futile and they decided to use legal means. However, every lawyer they approach for assistance abandoned them. Nabukeera revealed that they discovered that there was an invisible hand influencing lawyers to abandon them.

However, Nabukeera found a tough time when commissioner Dr. Rose Nakayi, a Makerere University law don tasked her to present evidence that the land in question was sold to her father.

Nakayi, basing on the documents before the commission told Nabukeera that the land was owned by King Daudi Chwa on behalf of Buganda so his son Kigaala had no powers to sell it.

In response, Nabukeera insisted that the land was given to Kigaala by Chwa so he owned the land in his personal capacity.  She further testified that even her late mother Dorothy Nasolo benefitted from that land as a daughter to king Chwa.

Former Buganda minister Robert Sebunya supported Nabukeera that the said land was owned by King Chwa in his personal capacity not a king. 

Justice Catherine Bamugemereire the chairperson of the commission promised Nabukeera that very soon, Maria Kiwanuka and others will be summoned to explain how they got the contested land.

Maria Nabasirye Kiwanuka is still battling with her husband’s son Sebuliba Kiwanuka who dragged her to the high court civil division accusing her of fraudulently changing the administration of their father’s companies including Oscar industries limited. Sebuliba asked High Court judge Musa Sekana to issue an order to have his father Mohan Kiwanuka’s mental status examined claiming that her step mother Nabasirye is using him to sign strange documents giving her powers to administer his properties.
