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.

We can do it alone as People Power – Okoler Opio Enoch

My colleague whose Identity I won’t disclose here holds the opinion that, we were rigged in Hoima because Mr. Museveni vowed to have that slot under all circumstances.

Well, civility requires that I respect his viewpoint even though we disagree on it.

Our only point of agreement, not in toto is that, the disagreements in opposition consciously or subconsciously orchestrated by the conduct of a few of our colleagues in People Power certainly negated our bid. That we agree until the point of asking to what extent did the same create effects to our detriment? He argues that, the effects were so insignificant that even without such we would still be rigged, that left him without reasons as to why we lost save the reason he gave and those advanced by Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi

The facts on two nailed NRM supporters – Okoler Opio Enoch

Nkoma in Mbale District is where it is alleged that one Isaac Katoogo an ardent supporter of NRM and President Museveni was nailed.

It is alleged further that, he was nailed by unknown persons for carrying a speaker while playing the “Kadongo Kamu” song he composed praising Mr. Museveni.

Comparing his case and that of Baker Kasumba, the 21 year old who was allegedly nailed in the palm of his hands in Bwaise or around a few weeks ago, I do infer that, even though, the assailants in both cases are not known, the similarity betwixt the two incidences is to the effect that the tormenters of the two victims mean the same and most likely they are the same.
