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


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)

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

The next Inspector General of Government (IGG) will have to struggle with untouchable government officials accused of stealing government money while also being undermined by the increasingly influential State House Anti-Corruption led by Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema.

This is the dilemma IGG Justice Irene Mulyagonja (Pictured) found herself in this year. 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.

Mafabi was all smiles shaking hands with the president at independence day , its a good gesture – Sam Evidence

Independence day celebration went on well, with hosting the Zimbabwean president and later seeing pictures of the FDC General secretary Nandala Mafabi smiling all through while shaking hands with the President. The picture which has gone viral on social media has indeed amazed me and triggered me to put down Something.

The extremists in the opposition have introduced a new name for our president and you must have read it somewhere. They call him “Dictator”. They freely say it out even to the audience which has People who have tasted on the good leadership and good personality of President Museveni. President Museveni’s leadership is built on tolerance and being accommodative for people you don’t agree with Politically..those who call him dictator am sure if we asked them why they do so, most of them would run out of answers.

You complained of NRM failing Uganda Airlines , its now revived – Sam Evidence

When Rwanda purchased planes and entered into air transport business opposition was all over social media and the mainstream media criticizing NRM for failing Uganda airlines. Pictures of old uganda Airlines planes were posted alongside the current Rwanda air planes as away of empathizing their crirism. I am not saying they were wrong but it’s now clear that our national Airline is now revived with a number of planes now purchased and fully operational.

It’s now the responsibility of all Ugandans including those in opposition to make sure that the company makes profits and doesn’t fail again. They will do so by using uganda airlines each time they want to travel especially to the cities where the Uganda airlines operates from. We will understand their unseriousness and unpatrioticism if they choose another airliner instead of our own.
