Mission accomplished: Adam Kalungi has been acquitted of the murder of the late Butaleja woman MP, Cerinah Nebanda

Birds of a feather: when Babylon USA trains its slave states to kill and formally hide all traces: MP Nebanda: Kalungi found guilty of manslaughter : Compare with: Lydia Draru, found of manslaughter for killing Gen.Kazini

Will the Nebanda-Kalungi trial be similar to the Dralu-Kazini trial?? Detectives say they might prefer manslaughter charges against Mr Kalungi, accused of supplying drugs that reportedly killed the Butaleja Woman MP 


Police officers held for murder of Andrew Felix Kaweesi

Written by URN
The Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) is holding five police officers over their alleged involvement in a string of malefactions. 
The officers held include; Nickson Agasirwe, the former head of the Police Special Operations Unit at Nalufenya in Jinja district, Joel Aguma, the commandant Professional Standards Unit (PSU), Alex Tumukunde and Faisal Katende, both operatives from the Flying Squad Unit and an intelligence officer only identified as Magada.

Aguma and Agasirwe were detained on Tuesday evening when they appeared at CMI headquarters for the third time in less than a month for questioning. The other officers were detained on their first appearance.

Police spokesperson, Asan Kasingye declined to comment on the arrests and referred URN to the army spokesperson. The army spokesman, Brigadier Richard Kalemire denied knowledge of the arrests when reached.
According to information obtained by URN, Aguma is being investigated for allegedly repatriating several refugees to Rwanda. Agasirwe and the three others are wanted in connection to the murder of former police spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
Nickson Agasirwe (R) is held for alleged involvement murder of Andrew Felix Kaweesi (L) in March this year
In 2013, Aguma was implicated in the kidnapping and illegally extraditing Lt Joel Mutabazi, a former bodyguard of Rwanda President Paul Kagame leading to his suspension from the force for two years.
Lt. Mutabazi was kidnapped from Sky hotel in Naalya, a city suburb where he was living with his family. From his suspension, Aguma bounced back as the deputy director crime intelligence from where he was promoted to head PSU.

The arrest of the five suspects comes few days after President Museveni reportedly directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to order four police directors to appear before the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) and CMI for questioning in relation to a missive authored by Ali Kabanda, a former police operative.

Kabanda allegedly wrote to the president implicating the officers for their alleged involvement in dubious deals including undermining investigations into the murder of Kaweesi and making wrongfully arrests. 
An officer involved in the investigations told URN on condition of anonymity that plans are underway to transfer the suspects to Makindye military police barracks.

Kaweesi murder suspect abuses Nakawa magistrate

Written by Derrick Kiyonga
One of eight people who were yesterday committed to the High court for trial in the Andrew Felix Kaweesi murder case lost his cool and insulted Nakawa grade one magistrate, Noah Sajjabi.
Joshua Kyambadde suddenly started shouting at the top of his voice, denouncing Sajjabi as a “Kafir”.
Kafir is an Arabic word meaning “one who covers the truth” or “one who covers something”, also translated as “infidels” or “unbelievers” according to Wikipedia.
Kyambadde, who was standing together with 22 other co-accused, was astounded when Sajjabi said “Kyambadde together with seven others murdered the former police spokesman and assistant inspector general of police in Kulambiro.”   
He raised his voice, babbling a lot of incoherent things. The magistrate calmly asked him to behave himself and tried to inform him that at this stage he isn’t allowed to say anything but the suspect kept on.
“I have never been to Kulambiro,” Kyambadde started.

His Muslim tunic swishing about as he gestured in anger, Kyambadde shot back: “This government is nothing, this is just life; we shall all die! I have never killed Kaweesi, this is all government, God will judge you.”   
Taken aback, Sajjabi ordered prison warders to take him out of court. Kyambadde unleashed another torrent.
“God is going to judge you! All of you, God is going to judge you!” he shouted while being led away with his hands now shackled.
“You kafir, you kafir, Allah Akbar (God is great),” he said. The charges were later read to him in Sajjabi’s chambers amid tight security.   
The magistrate indicated that out of the 22 people who have been charged with killing Kaweesi, eight were committed to the High court for trial.
They include: Abdu Rashid Mbazira Buyondo Muhammed, Aramazan Higenyi Noordin aka Taata Abdallazack , Mugerwa Yusuf aka Wilson, Bruhan Balyejusa aka Masiga Jimmy Ogutu, Kyambadde,  Jibril Kalyango,  Abu Aisha, Yusuf Nyanzi Siraje aka Ssentamu Jimmy and Shafiq Kasujja.
According to the DPP, the accused committed acts of terrorism when for political or religious reasons they involved themselves in or were complicit in the murder of Kaweesi on March 17.  
They are also charged with murdering Kaweesi, his bodyguard Kenneth Erau and driver Godfrey Wambewa. Charges of robbery have also been brought against them in respect to the robbing of Kaweesi’s pistol and the escort’s SMG rifle at gunpoint.  
According to a summary of the evidence, police investigations led to the arrest of Mbazira.  The DPP alleges Mbazira revealed that he was involved in the planning and execution of the murder. Mbazira is said to have identified some of his accomplices as Higenyi, Mugerwa, Balyejusa, Kyambadde, Kalyango, Nyanzi, Siraje and Shafiq.
Mbazira, according to the DPP, revealed that the assassination of Kaweesi was ordered by the rebel Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a terrorist organisation.
Mbazira allegedly revealed that ADF plotted to assassinate top government officials and that Kaweesi was one of their targets.  
Upon obtaining information from Mbazira, the DPP says, police tracked down his accomplices. Higenyi was arrested on March 21, in Kasese aboard a bus en route to Mpondwe, which the DPP says is a notorious crossing point for ADF rebels and recruits into DR Congo.
“He was in the company of a young boy and upon search, he was found in possession of a forged a national ID card which he revealed was made for him by accused eight (Kasujja),” the indictment says.
The DPP says it was established that the juvenile Higenyi was being transported to DRC to join the rebels. Police arrested Kasujja from the home of Balyejusa and interviewed him.
Kasujja allegedly led the police to his workplace on Nasser road in Kampala where the DPP says a computer containing digital images of forged national IDs were recovered.
Kyambadde is also alleged to have been present during a meeting where Kaweesi’s murder was decided and assigned the role of reconnaissance at the deceased’s home.
In respect to the 14 who were not committed to High court, Sajjabi said he will convene a court session next week to hear prayers to have them discharged.

CMI police arrests, details revealed 

Written by Sadab Kitatta Kaaya
The widening Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence investigation into police has claimed more scalps of senior officers, sending a huge panic wave within the force’s rank and file.
As the dragnet spreads, six officers have been placed under lock and key at Makindye maximum security military police facility on the outskirts of central Kampala, sources revealed.
By yesterday, insider sources said CMI and Internal Security Organisation agents had been dispatched to the notorious Nalufenya police station in Jinja to arrest yet another senior police officer there.
Other operatives were almost simultaneously on board a flight to Algeria to retrieve Joseph Baroza, a former assistant to Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura.
Baroza is presently a police liaison officer at Uganda’s mission there assigned with monitoring, informing and implementing exchange programmes on African Police Cooperation Mechanism (Afripol) such as trainings, visits and others.
IGP Kale Kayihura
Herbert Muhangi, the commandant of the Flying Squad, a unit dedicated to combatting violent crime, was according to sources, interrogated but later released. Muhangi neither picked nor returned our calls yesterday.
Senior Commissioner of Police Joel Aguma, the commandant of the police Professional Standards Unit; Senior Superintendent of Police Nixon Agasirwe, the former special operations unit boss at Nalufenya in Jinja district; Faisal Katende, an operative in the flying squad; Assistant Superintendent of Police Magada (crime intelligence); AIP Mpambuzo, Sgt Abel Tumukunde, the Kampala Metropolitan Police flying squad commander, and Ali Kabanda, a flying squad operative, are being held at Makindye Military Police Barracks.
Agasirwe, Baroza and Katende are reportedly suspects in the aggravated robbery and murder of an Eritrean businessman. Deniel Weldo was killed in cold blood in December 2016. His killers then tried to steal two million euros (Shs 8bn) from his account operated in Stanbic bank.
The 32-year-old man had operated his business from South Sudan. He left that troubled country for Uganda after renewed armed conflict broke out between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and his former first Vice president Riek Machar.
Aguma is being investigated for allegedly engaging in subversive acts, including colluding with foreign security agents to abduct and forcibly return Rwandan political asylum seekers/refugees to Rwanda.
According to insider police sources, these dark dealings came to light when former flying squad operator Ali Kabanda reportedly fell out with colleagues. He started telling all and sundry that his life was in danger. Sources say that Kabanda took to social media to highlight these alleged threats to his life.
Soon, CMI reportedly took interest in his case and approached him. Military intelligence offered to protect him in exchange for what he knew.
Kabanda allegedly blew the lid on how a Rwandan double agent, who had spied on both Uganda and Rwanda, was eliminated. Kabanda’s information was that this double agent picked information on Uganda and fed through channels that purportedly ended at the desk of Rwandan President Paul Kagame and vice versa.
The agent, sources say, was known in well-placed political and intelligence circles in Uganda. But he was killed on Ugandan soil and his body dumped in Kisoro district, which borders Rwanda not long after Kigali learnt he was double dealing.
According to Kabanda, the killing was done by top Ugandan police operatives at the urging of their Rwandan counterparts.
When President Museveni learnt of the agent’s death years ago, he assumed the Rwandans had done the hatchet job.
But years later, Kabanda was singing a completely different tune about that death. When CMI got this useful information, they passed it on to the president. The president reportedly invited police chief Kale Kayihura and asked whether he knew that his officers were accused of bumping off the spy.
Kayihura, sources said, promised to investigate. But CMI again advised the president that Kayihura might not be a reliable investigator as he is part and parcel of the very police now under suspicion.
On second thought, the president asked Kayihura to drop the investigation. He later asked CMI and ISO to investigate.
As the investigation widened, more aspects cropped up, including the forced repatriation of Rwandese nationals (some of them on the run from Kigali security) and the murder of the Eritrean.
All these crimes reportedly pointed at senior police officers. As CMI tightens the noose, police officers are in a state of panic.
Interviewed, several police officers, who declined to be named, said yesterday they don’t know who will be picked next.
“We don’t know what is going on in police now. Most of the officers have been picked by CMI and arrested without clear charges. We don’t know how and where they are detained. We are living in fear because we don’t know who will be picked next…,” a source said.
One officer said if CMI operatives turn up at his gate without clear charges, he will fight them.
“The moment I see them, I will first let my dogs attack them before firing at them. They shouldn’t arrest us anyhow over unexplained issues,” the officer said.
Another officer said most police officers have been arrested by plainclothes soldiers and taken to unknown places where they could have been tortured.
“We are hearing rumours that the arrested officers were investigated for many cases including murders, business deals that went wrong, robberies and issues of deportation of Rwandese and South Sudanese refugees,” a source said.  
Police spokesperson Asan Kasingye confirmed the arrests yesterday and said senior police staff are rattled because army personnel are not explaining why they are arresting these individuals, and where they are holding them.
“They are just picking people; we don’t know what they are investigating and where they are taking them.  We also don’t know how many they need. Let CMI and UPDF explain why they are arresting police officers and on what charges…,” Kasingye said at the police headquarters.
UPDF spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire didn’t pick his phone calls but has been quoted elsewhere saying the army is not holding any police officer.
Col Frank Bagyenda Kaka, the ISO boss, didn’t give away much when interviewed yesterday.
“In fact we shall arrest you. You are interrupting our investigations. It’s not right when we are investigating such sensitive issues and you put them in papers. You are not doing good service to the public,” he said.

Guidelines on age limit consultations

Having observed what is going on in the consultations held so far, as a patriot, I find it important to issue some guidelines to be followed.
First of all, both sides should keep in mind that this is not meant to be a serious consultative process but a formality.
What we shall do in the end is none of the electorate’s business. So, please desist from wasting time that our people should have spent in their gardens and businesses. You should not abuse their right to work by engaging them in rallies.
Those who are opposed to the age limit amendment bill should keenly take note of the following:
Ideally, consultations should be conducted in maximum silence, and, at best, without any crowds. But if you can’t avoid this, then it shall not be allowed for people to scream in excitement and to chant songs against the regime. That is inciting violence and it contravenes principles of patriotism.
You are allowed to sing if you must, but make sure that the songs you sing do not annoy anyone who is in support of removing age limits. In future, you should consider informing police about all the songs you intend to sing during your consultations.
You will also need to write your speeches and send us copies before we allow you to speak. We are also considering coming up with a word count for your speeches and are compiling a list of prohibited vocabulary.
Words like ageende, we are tired, SFC, corruption, life presidency, dynasty, elderly, etc are being unpatriotically misused and may soon be banned in consultations. We have also received shocking information that k’ogikwatako is a vulgar word and we shall soon send it to the anti-pornography committee for vetting, to see if it’s fit for public use.
We have also observed with much concern that your use of public address systems at consultations is in blatant contravention of Nema [National Environment Management Authority] regulations on noise pollution.
Therefore, the use of loud speakers might be reconsidered. We advise you to use your natural voices in order not to disrupt other people’s conversations.
Consider also that standing on roofs of cars while addressing your rallies violates traffic rules and the integrity of cars. Please stand on the ground and speak. If you can’t follow these regulations, please stay at home.
Research by colour psychologists has showed that colour red is associated with danger, war, and aggression. It increases heart rate and makes people breathe faster.
It also excessively stimulates a person’s eyes and can cause irritation. All this on top of attracting lightning! It is, therefore, obvious that this colour is both unhealthy and incites violence. In line with our mandate of protecting Ugandans, red may not be allowed at consultations. Consider using the colour of the sun, which is friendly and less risky.
Intimidation of those who support the bill will not be tolerated. On the other hand, intimidation and harassment of those who do not support it is a patri... Oh, what did I want to say? I think I have forgotten! Let’s move to other more important guidelines, I will come back to this when I remember.
Those who are in support of the bill should be guided by the following considerations:
First, beware of the public. Do not move around anyhow without security. Even when you go to ease yourself, don’t leave your bodyguard behind. The public is a security risk in this matter. We shall always be present to gas them up whenever they start their misinformed nio nio nio.
Keep in mind that they do not know what they want; you are the only one who knows. They envy you for your immense wisdom and foresight; so, they could easily harm you out of ignorance. But what is more important for you to remember is that they voted you to think for them.
Cognisant of that beautiful fact then, consultation is not really relevant for you. Simply go home, look for the few who think like you and discuss how to skip the useless ignorant masses.
Don’t organise rallies where their numbers will make the bill appear unpopular. Being the majority and being right are two different things, except in parliament.
Don’t get carried away into thinking that you were actually sent to consult. In actual fact this is time for you to scheme and establish ways of coming back with the view you already held (or were told to hold) well dressed up to appear as if it is from the people. No matter what they tell you, simply go back to the House and state your personal view by saying: “My people have said...”
Nobody will ask you for statistics or any other kind of evidence to back up your report. So, you are totally safe. That’s why I advised you earlier not to take the consultation thing too seriously; it’s impotent.
Regarding processions and demonstrations, both sides are not allowed to organise demonstrations/protests about this bill. But we are facing a challenge in implementing this. You know the yellow colour is a bit invisible.
So, quite often, those wearing it demonstrate and sometimes beat up members of the other side in our presence but we can’t see them.
However, we promise that after the bill is passed, we shall find a solution to this small problem. If our suggestions hurt anyone, you are free to migrate to another country.
For God and my shamelessness.


I must outdo Evelyn Anite and declare Museveni God

You see, Comrade Evelyn Anite, I have been watching you consistently.
First, it was the sole candidacy mooting championship of 2015 where you stole the show from me, and I kept quiet. You thought I had not seen you, but I knew what you were doing and that my time would come.
Next, it was the ‘We have the magye’ pronouncement race to remind those who are slumbering in childish illusions of opposing the lifting of the age limit from the constitution. They idiotically think the constitution is also theirs.
They don’t know that it is our constitution. These imbeciles; as if they have nothing better to do! You stole this moment too from me. And as usual, I was watching you but chose to keep quiet. But little did you know that I would have the last word and, of course, the last laugh.
You were underrating my arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). But now you are done; so, it is my time to prove to you who can do it best, in other words, who has the best interest of our beloved country at heart.
You see, Anite, many have tried earlier, including the George Wilberforce Kakomas of this world who, in their usual delusions, thought they were handing our country over to God to nurture and care for. Idi Amin also tried to practise a democracy made in Uganda in order to neutralize the one imposed by imperialists.
Such a statesman he was! But, nevertheless, he, like others that you obviously don’t know for you have just recently arrived from Mars, also failed.
Now my time has come to prove not only to you but also to the rest of the world that I am the best man alive.
Firstly, I hear that in 2015 you were on your knees. Imagine, only knees! And unfortunately for you, the second time
You even forgot your overused little knees. You simply delivered the feeble maggye proclamation before the media! Just seated, imagine! And you think you were serving the interest of the whole Almighty? Sure?
You should have hung for demeaning the great leader. But I was there laughing and saying to myself, ‘Look at this little woman! Who does she think she is? Yeyitaki? Anajeyita nani? I’m going to show her.’
Now my time has come. And by the way, as I’m casting this magic card to neutralise all your laughable attempts; I’m prostrating exactly flat on the ground, more than even those who do so before the Kabaka and my Omukama in Tooro kingdom.
And, of course, you also didn’t know this golden trick, did you? Now hear this! I, Barongo ba Kafuuzi Ateenyi, do declare on behalf of the cursed children of Uganda that Yoweri Museveni takes on the title of God.
Moreover, I don’t mean any little god that you have known around here but the God Almighty Himself. Why?
The reason is simple. This is the only way to immortalize the man and ensure that the peace, stability and steady progress that he alone could and, indeed, ushered into Uganda last forever.
After all, doesn’t Museveni already own the petroleum and minerals in the ground, the forests, the wild parks, the mountains, the hills, the lakes, the rivers and the dams of this small planet Earth? Indeed, not at all different from God!
Who doesn’t know this? Secondly, you see, the endemic apprehension of the anti-age limit proponents like you Anite, is (the Almighty forbid) the ultimate demise of the great man at one time or another.
So, I’m providing a magic bullet against this craze. Surely, does God die? No. Don’t we continue asking Him for our wellbeing even when we don’t see Him? Of course, yes.
And doesn’t He continue providing for us endlessly? Another yes! Then what are we waiting for? Just give the man his rightful title! Of course, I know the Almighty Himself is listening and He has blessed me for the declaration.
And I know that the likes of Raphael Magyezi, let alone you Anite, cannot hold a candle to me at this game. Now you see? I told you. They say the best man always wins and he who laughs last laughs best.
Now you know that I am that very man. Of course, I know you want to threaten me with your sky-high royal carriage that you displayed the other day in Koboko, akin to the 19th century explorers in Africa over those poor Africa souls’ shoulders.
What’s innovative in that; even Idi Amin Dada, the Conqueror of the British Empire, did it over those lousy whites’ shoulders in the 1970s. No! Wait!
Do you know that by my super declaration, I will be laughing, eating and enjoying at the very right-hand side of the great leader, our God Himself?
Can you afford this feat? Of course not! Sorry! Though, it serves you right.
