    Your Boss Keeps Changing Her Skin Colour To Look Like Them And You Are Wearing Their Wig – Bobi Wine Stings D/Speaker Tayebwa On Attacking Whites Over Resolution On Uganda’s Oil….

    on

    National Unity Platform (NUP) president Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine has stung Deputy Speaker Rt. Hon. Thomas Tayebwa over his statements attacking the European Parliament resolution stopping the construction of the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP).

    Addressing press today, at the party headquarters in Kamwokya, Bobi Wine appreciated the European Union for the resolution they passed the Oil pipeline partnership agreement between Uganda and Tanzania.

    “We are glad that they cited the issues of gross human rights abuses and gross environmental abuses. For a long time, we have been calling upon the international community to stop being Museveni’s wings,” he said.

    He added, “We have been asking them to stop standing with dictator Museveni. We all remember the issue of parliament passing a resolution condemning the rigged elections of 2021.

    “We know that we need our oil, we know that that oil is supposed to change the lives of the people of Uganda. But we also know that General Museveni has said it not only once that, that is his oil. We want to tell Museveni that it is not your oil, it is our oil.”

    A furious Bobi Wine divulged that it will be a disservice to the people of Uganda if the world democracies stood with a dictator who is only using the resources of Uganda to enrich himself and to subducate the people of Uganda.

    “We, therefore, welcome that resolution and we want even more. We have been calling for sanctions and it is at this time that I want to salute our diaspora teams and all Ugandans that have added their voice to our calls.”

    He added, “I saw Tayebwa saying that we cannot work for the whites yet he is putting on their wig, not knowing what it even means. As for his boss (Rt. Hon. Anita Among), she doesn’t want people to know that she is from Uganda and that is why she keeps changing her skin colour.”

    Speaking of the interparty Organisation for Dialogue (IPOD), Bobi Wine revealed that they told IPOD that they are not Museveni’s friends.

    He contended, “We are not interested in having dinner and taking pictures with him (Museveni) because that is in a way legitimising his rule. So, we are thankful that IPOD also saw what we want.

    “You know that we took Museveni to the International Criminal court and so we are looking forward to a day when the ICC will also sanction Museveni, his son, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba.”

    Kyagulanyi propounded that if they have Museveni longer, they are going to have a more divided Uganda because he focuses on diving Uganda.

    “That is why we want to weaken Museveni in any way, we want to dismantle the Museveni dictatorship, we want to remove a dictator, we want Museveni to fall that is why we are going to cut all his ties.”

    NUP Spokesperson, Joel Ssenyonyi also unveiled a new team in the NUP leadership that was voted in July by the National Executive Committee (NEC).

    “In July we had a NEC meeting which approved some new leaders because we had some gaps that were important for us to fill.”

    The new leaders include; Mr. Muwanguzi Andrew (Acting head of training and ideology), Mr. Kanabi Moses (Acting organising secretary), Ms. Namutyaba Sylivia (Deputy Head of Youth in Central), Mr. Adonio Micheal (Deputy head of the Youth in Northern Uganda), Mr. Tulit Simon Akecha (Acting head of policy and reserve), Mr. Byarugaba William (Acting secretary for the elderly), Ms. Kassim Fatuma (Deputy head of the Women wing for Western Uganda), Mr. Aguda Moses (Deputy youth for Western Uganda) and Mr. Emachu Arnold (Acting head of the informal sector).

    Security On High Alert After Sunday ADF-Linked Bomb Blast Near Uganda, DR Congo Border

    Published

    on

    Uganda security agencies have been put on high alert after a bomb linked to the Allied Democratic Forces – ADF went off yesterday near Uganda, Congo border.

    The incident in the Eastern DRC happened at Pentecostal Church in Lhubirira, an immediate town located 4kms after Mpondwe border point. At least 10 people died on the spot and 47 others suffered injuries.

    “The terror attack shows that terrorism can occur any time and anywhere, and further reminds us all of the terrorist threats that we face as a country. Because of the existing threat environment, our Joint Counter terror task teams from CMI, Crime Intelligence, Counter terrorism, CID in coordination with territorial units, continue to operate with a heightened state of readiness. It is approximately, 425days, since the double terror task at CPS and Kampala Avenue that have led to several investigations, multiple arrests and recovery of an assortment of dangerous weapons. So far, 18 guns have been recovered, 1 PK gun and 116 PK rounds, 1 pistol, 7 IEDs, 21 electronic detoriators, 52 explogel explosives, 2 Axel blades, 2 emulsion explosives, an assortment of bomb making materials, walkie talkies, mobile phones, 185 other types of ammunition, and motorcycles etc. In addition, a total of 57 suspects (terrorists and rebels) have been arrested,” Police Spokesperson who doubles as the Joint Security Spokesman told the media in Kampala on Monday.

    And while those disruptive operations present a positive step in securing the safety of Ugandans, Enanga says that “there is still work to identify ADF cells of agents, collaborators, operatives and sponsors within the country.”

    “Several measures have also been put in place, to avert any hostile infiltrations and attacks at Mpondwe border and all other crossing points. For instance, we have stopped the movement of cargo and passenger boats across Lake Albert, intensified patrols in Bugoma forest and across the borderlines, bolstered security at major installations, markets and parking yards, and intensified intelligence on several targets among others,” he said.

    Enanga, however, asked the public not to be alarmed “by these steps because it is meant for their safety.”

    “We would like to further remind the public that the threats of terrorism are real, especially on soft targets, which are many and sometimes difficult to defend, especially restaurants, markets, shopping centres, public transportation hubs like taxi and bus parks, places of worship and other crowded places etc. as a result, we call upon the public to be extra alert and vigilant, as they go about their activities. Remember, the best defence against any terrorist threats is our collective community effort. Once again, please be alert but not alarmed. And report any suspicious behaviour or activity to the nearest police unit or security agency.”

    City Babe Who Offered Room For Cousin & Her Boyfriend Arrested For Double Murder

    Published

    on

    The police are investigating circumstances under which two young adults died in a fire at Jinja-Nabweru on Thursday evening.

    The deceased have been identified as Patricia, 24, and Kajumba, 27.

    Findings show that the lovers visited Suzan Keitesi, 24; a cousin of Patricia on Thursday morning. Keitesi is a resident in an apartment at Jinja Kawempe Zone A, Jinja Kawempe Ward in Nabweru Division.

    However, the pair were found dead on Thursday evening in a suspicious manner, while Keitesi was rushed to a nearby clinic and later Kawempe hospital for first aid. She was later discharged that day.

    Suspecting foul play, detectives attached to Kawempe Police Station interacted with Keitesi on her hospital bed. Her statement looked uncoordinated. She has been detained as further investigations continue.

    Deputy Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire says Patricia and her boyfriend are suspected to have been murdered.

    “We have reserved the scene for further examination by officials from National Building Review Board, UMEME, and other stakeholders, to ascertain the exact cause of the fire. 

    Whereas the tenant had a gas cooker, it was in a store and it remained intact,” Owoyesigyire said. “We have however arrested Kaitesi Suzan on allegations of Murder as investigations continue.”

    Published

    on

    Police are searching for the Managing Director of Aponye Uganda Limited who went missing on Sunday night.

    Harold Byamugisha is said to have left home on Sunday dressed casually, promising his wife that he was to return.

    “The wife says he left home in a yellow shirt and white shorts. She said he called her around 11pm and informed her that he could return home in 20 minutes. He didn’t return,” Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire told the media yesterday.

    Byamugisha’s family has also put up an announcement, promising a Shs5m reward to anyone who can help them find him.

    “He was last seen in Ntinda on Sunday…driving his motor vehicle, a Range Rover, white in colour number UBF 017D. This is to inform the general public that whoever has any idea of his whereabouts, please call us on 0775363017, 07770611435 or report to the nearest police station. A reward of Shs5m is available,” the notice reads in part.

    But while reports emerged Friday morning that he had been found, security sources say Byamugisha is yet to be found.

    “He called us yesterday and said he is okay. But the wife who reported the case hasn’t physically seen him,” a security source said.

    Owoyesigyire says Byamugisha is still missing.

    “To us, he is still missing,” he said. “So, we are still looking for him and he is not safe and sound like he said.”
