Understanding Gen Otafiires’s wrangles with the first family ~ Nkwene Nelson

UNDERSTANDING GEN OTAFIIRE’S WRANGLES WITH FIRST FAMILY, HE TRIED (S) TO SAVE ABAIRU FROM BAHIMA DOMINANCE, YOU MAY NOTE THIS!

Let’s look at how it all started, at least you remember when a muhima woman called Abairu amazi and Kahinda a colonel then pulled out a gun to shoot her! Since then, I’ve not again heard this word used publicly to abuse non-bahima Ankole natives – mission achieved ; Kudos

However the result ended personal, to us that have been following trends, General has not been at good terms with the husband of this notorious lady who publicly called Abairu amazi.

Looking at unfolding events am made to believe, this huband, a close relative of the first family is behind all Gen’s political problems as he finances the political opponent(s)

The Young King and A Snake: the cost of generational blame game in Uganda ~ Christopher Okidi

A young king ascended to the throne after the death of his father, but like British Politician Lord Acton said of power, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The young monarch immediately purged his father’s old servants, banished the old and invited his young friends to manage the affairs of the kingdom. Young as they were they abdicated their royalty duties and indulged in binge drinking, party after party. Pandemonium soon set in when the king drops on the ground and a snake crawls into his mouth.

The puzzle the young rulers were confronted with was how to remove a snake from the King’s mouth without injuring him? None of the new replacements of the old timers in the royal service knew exactly what to do. When push came to shove as the situation was dire, the servants went out to look for elders to help resolve the crisis. His loyal servant returned with one of elders who came with a bag and a rat in it, because he was already briefed of what had befallen the king. On arriving where the King was, he opened his bag picked out the rat and threw it on the ground, when the snake heard the rat squeak, it got out of the King’s throat immediately and started chasing the rat, that is how the crisis was resolved.

Gen Muhoozi warning came at the right time ~Sam Evidence

Using his Twitter handle Lt Gen Muhoozi praised the UPDF and Special forces and sounded a warning to any enemy of Uganda who may be thinking of distablizing our country that he will be crashed. This has not gone well with some people especially the opposition after reading it from newspapers with twisted words but whatever it is, it is a warning coming at a right time.

Uganda in the past few months has passed through a number security problems. We have woken up to sad news of assassinations of high profile people by criminals who shoot them and run away. It had become a common story and some ugandans were afraid which was the target of the criminals to create fear amongst the population. It’s like when you’re trusting your dog and it runs away from the enemy. Obviously you lose hope and get frightened in fact if not strong you may even faint.

Beware of disinformation, character terrorism and reputational mudslinging cowards online~Odrek Rwabwogo

About June of this year, I received a phone call from a telephone number, +260-958-117-776. It was a male voice with a familiar sounding Kiganda/English accent. However, I couldn’t put a face to it in my mind. The fellow said he was calling from South Africa from a place he called ‘The people’s agency’. The blackmailer said he called to warn me about what he termed as “your ambitions”. He added “we are going to release information unless you can talk to us in a good way……” I have since seen several telephone numbers from this fake blackmail group send messages and redistribute them across social media.

I took this as a redundant annoying (crank) call and told the fellow to go find something better to do with his life. Suddenly in July, I begun to notice simultaneous despicable lies circulating on social media platforms and shared by some of the people we work with. These shameful lies target our business and my person. I asked a lawyer to take up the matter with UCC and file a complaint against the number and the source of the caller.

The search for next IGG on as Mulyagonja quits for Judiciary

She applied for a vacancy at the Court of Appeal and now with her appointment to the latter court by President Museveni, the IGG position will be vacant in a few weeks. Mulyagonja had long voiced her frustration at being IGG.
