    Kirumira posted a picture with his family celebrating (Mwesigwa’s downfall) and thanked the president and the new Inspector General of Police for cleaning up the police force and putting Mwesigwa in his right place. Below is Kirumira’s post:

    Kirumira celebrating with his family

    We are happy as a family that some policemen both high and low, who were behind the framing of cases against me have also been reshuffled from their comfort zones.

    The head of the group was CP Mwesigwa Frank former Metropolitan Police Commander, who stood up in State house in May 2017,during a security meeting while His Excellency The President of Uganda, was inquiring about my whereabouts and he said I deserved to be Buyende, (using it as an abuse),he said I was a thief, etc and he championed the court proceedings to justify his lie, via convincing the Former head of police to use that court to dismiss me in order to fulfill his motives.

    He had developed bad feelings against me and he worked in a project of discrediting my work thru various circles.

    He assigned a certain journalist from a local diary to make several bad stories against me even while I was in Buyende.

    Until when I answered them back.

    Hope they heard me my roar too.

    He was simply worried of working with me, but I assure him plus all his associates both in open and secret that all of them will be reshuffled and I assure them further that I will not rejoin their institution .

    Let them keep being disturbed as they figure out how wat to do.

    I thank God, His Excellency the President and the new police bosses.

    Continue cleaning pakalast. For me I’m here eating Rolex.

    Some of the senior actors in ebonies

    Ebonies actors and actresses have cried out for help claiming that they are sleeping hungry and being chased out of houses for failing to pay rent.

    One actor who preferred to remain anonymous revealed to theGrapevine that the Ebonies management has spent close to three months without paying some of them.

    “We are tired of sleeping hungry, they are chasing us from houses of Shs.30,000 because we don’t have money to pay yet we keep working and entertaining people,” he said.

    She further revealed that on complaining to their boss, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Ebonies, told them to be patient with him because, at the moment, the company doesn’t have money.

    “He called us to a meeting where he started telling us how the company doesn’t have money. He told us to give him time to borrow money to pay us.”

    When theGrapevine reached out to Mr. Sam Bagenda alias Dr. Bbosa, one of the senior members of Ebonies who has spent many years in the acting industry, he refuted the allegations noting that it is not true that actors and actresses are not paid.

    “I already put out my statement on those issues a longtime and like I said, it is false,” he said.

    Bbosa added that their business is moving on so well that people are even enjoying the different plays at National Theatre.

    “People are just trying to get likes and subscriptions so they create information from nowhere but you should know when you are excelling in a certain field, you always have the negative energy trying to pull you down,” he divulged.

    Bbosa furthermore told this website that if one is not strong enough, only that can disorganise the whole progress.

    He then insisted that their business is moving on well and no one is complaining.

    I’m Going To Celebrate My Rank Down On Kampala Road – Muhoozi Vows After His Father Promotes Him To Rank Of General…

    Published

    on

    The First Son Muhoozi Kainerugaba welcomed the rank of General given to him by his father President Yoweri Museveni.

    “I thank Ugandans for loving me. I will wear this rank, we celebrate and work continues!” Muhoozi tweeted.

    “We are going to have a celebration down Kampala Road for this rank. I thank my father for this great honor!” he added

    President Museveni, who is Commander in Chief of the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF), also dropped Muhoozi as Land Forces commander.

    In a statement released today by UPDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Felix Kulayigye, Muhoozi will continue with his duties as Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations

    The statement reads, “H.E the President and Commander in Chief of the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces has promoted and appointed General Officers as follows: Lieutenant General Muhoozi Kainerugaba promoted to General and continues with duties as Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations.

    “Major General Muhanga Kayanja promoted to Lieutenant General and appointed Commander Land Forces. The Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs and UPDF fraternity congratulate the General Officers upon their well-deserved promotions and appointments.”

    Muhoozi’s promotion and demotion follows uncontrolled tweets from him with one stating that his army would capture Kenya within two weeks.

    “It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, two weeks to capture Nairobi.”

    “I’m happy that members of our district in Kenya, have responded enthusiastically to my tweet. It’s still two weeks to Nairobi,” he sarcastically said.

    Muhoozi further provoked tweeps that they (Kenya and Uganda) are going to be one country. Any war against them will end quickly.

    “The borders that were established by the colonisers mean nothing to us, revolutionaries. Nairobi.”

    His tweets forced the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to clear the air on how they conduct the country’s foreign policy.

    According to a statement dated October, 4th, 2022, Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted that the debate on social media in respect to the relationship between Uganda and the brotherly neighbour, the Republic of Kenya, (initiated by Muhoozi), should not be taken seriously.

    “The Ministry wishes to emphasize that the Government and the people of the Republic of Uganda treasure the existing strong bilateral relations between the people and the Government of the Republic of Kenya based on our shared history, common values, mutual respect, trust and the desire to build a unified East African Community,” the statement read.

    “To this end, the Government of the Republic of Uganda wishes to reiterate its commitment to good neighbourliness, peaceful co-existence and cooperation.”

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs further clarified that the Government of the Republic of Uganda does not depend on social media sources in dealing with other sovereign Governments.

    “The Government of the Republic of Uganda, therefore, wishes to reiterate its cordial relationship with the Republic of Kenya and assure the people and the Government of the Republic of Kenya of our harmonious relationship that we value.”

    Minister for Security, Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi has distanced himself from the matter noting that he doesn’t want to talk about media reports because it is not authentic and not worth the energy to talk about it.

    “Someone asked about media reports (Gen Muhoozi’s tweets) and I don’t even remember what it was about but I don’t want to talk about media reports. It is not authentic and not worth the energy to talk about it. I have no comment about that.”

    Mwenda Narrates How Intelligence Advised M7 To Fire Kagame Girl Who Prepares His Bedroom….

    Published

    on

    Veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda (L) and President Museveni (R)

    Celebrated veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda has narrated how intelligence advised President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to fire president Paul Kagame’s girl to save his life.

    Mwenda revealed that when the misunderstanding between Rwanda and Uganda was at its peak, with each nation accusing the other of espionage, intelligence operatives advised President Museveni to fire all his assistants of Rwandan descent.

    Mwenda said that among the people that intelligence wanted to be removed from the state house was the beautiful Munyarwanda woman who has been in charge of President Museveni’s bedroom for a long time.

    He added that after reading a strongly worded intelligence report, Museveni took his time to interrogate the dossier and he took a strong decision which hurt his intelligence team by refusing to fire his assistants.

    While moderating ‘The hot seat’ talk show on KFM radio on Friday, Mwenda explained that Museveni trusts Rwandese more than Ugandans that’s why all the people surrounding him are Banyarwanda.

    It is on this note that Mwenda wondered why the President does not come out to rescue Rwandans from the ongoing harassment from country’s immigration department.

    He revealed that he has investigated and established that these people are facing a lot of hardships to get passports and National identity cards.

    He said that many of the people who have Rwanda like name are stateless because Uganda refused to give them passports and National Identity cards yet they cannot go to Rwanda because they were born in Uganda and all are parents have lived, died and have been buried in Uganda.

    Mwenda gave an example of Ritah Kanya, a news anchor with NTV Uganda and wife to senior investigative journalist Raymond Mujuni who is currently stateless because both her National Identity card and passports were canceled at the Immigration over her Rwandan roots.

    He insisted that Kanya was born in Uganda in Kisoro district and his grandfather was a sub county chief, so it is wrong to declare her stateless.

    He pleaded with President Museveni to intervene in the matter because National Unity Platform(NUP) supporters are also threatening Banyarwanda that when they take power, they will be sent back to their country.

    Land forces commander and also first son, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba led the Uganda-Rwanda negotiations which resulted in the reopening of the Katuna border which was closed by president Kagame in 2017 on allegations of mistreating Rwandese in Uganda.

    Lt. Gen. Muhoozi revealed through twitter that very soon, he is going to travel to Rwanda to meet his loving uncle.

    Efforts to reach Simon Peter Mundeyi, the immigration spokesperson, were fruitless because his known phone numbers were not going through.
