The first bank in The Ganda Kingdom

By Henry Lubega

Posted  Sunday, March 1  2015 


Before 1906, there was no banking institution in Uganda until November of the same year when the national Bank of India opened its first branch in Entebbe, and four years later it opened the first bank in Kampala, although it was later taken up to become Grindlys Bank.

The National Bank of India was followed by Standard Bank of South Africa Limited when on September 19, 1912, it opened its first branch in Kampala. And a few years later it opened another branch in Jinja.


Barclays followed in 1927 when it opened two branches in Kampala and Jinja. In 1954 three more banks; Bank of Baroda, Bank of India and The Nedelandsche Handel-Maatschappij M.V (Netherlands Trading Society) opened in Uganda.

According to Saben’s commercial directory and handbook of Uganda, as early as 1949 the banking system had been established in Uganda but did not control much of the financial liquidity that was in circulation across the board in the country.

“Much of the money was controlled in the bazaars and other channels which were predominantly controlled by people of the Asian origin. These people played a key role in the buying of cotton.

However, areas where banks were non-existent, merchants in those areas played the part of the banks. This was through taking drafts in exchange for cash or physical items in exchange for hard cash,” Saben wrote.

By 1950, it was realised that to bring more Africans into the business there was need to provide them with credit. Unfortunately, the commercial banks at the time would not extend credit to Africans because of the nature of their securities.

Under Ordinance number 20 of 1950 the Uganda Credit and Saving Bank was created purposely to extend credit facilities to Africans with the aim of furthering agriculture, commercial building and co-operative society purposes.

On October 2, 1950, the bank was opened and by 1961 it had spread to places like Arua, Fort Portal, Jinja, Soroti, Gulu, Masaka and Mbale, taking only African deposits.

Building Society

Two years later, the first Building Society in Uganda was opened as a subsidiary of a Kenyan owned firm Savings and Loans Society Limited. 

More financial institutions continued to open up in Uganda with Lombard Bank from Kenya, in partnership with Uganda Development Corporation, opening the Lombank Uganda Limited in 1958. It was this bank which first introduced the hire purchase system of shopping in Uganda.

It was not until 1966 that through an act of Parliament that Bank of Uganda was created. Prior to this, issues to do with money were handled by the East African currency board which had its head offices in Kenya.

In daddy’s scientific footsteps: With her 5th degree, Butambala girl lives the American dream:

Written by Joseph W. Kamugisha & Ronnie Mayanja

 Created: 29 May 2012


PhD Holder: Dr Sala Nanyanzi Senkayi(centre) and mother(right) and supervising Professor(left)

   Sala and her Daddy.

It is every parent’s dream to see their children grow up and graduate from university.

But often do you meet a five-degree holder, topped off with a Doctorate degree or PhD?

Well, recently the Ugandan community in Dallas Fort Worth not only embraced one, they also welcomed their community’s first and youngest female PhD holder in the names of Dr Sala Nanyanzi Senkayi. It has been a long time coming for the young lady, the daughter of Dr Abu Senkayi (PhD) and Sunajeh Senkayi, having began her humble journey at Texas A&M University, with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree.

She would later pick up two other B.Sc degrees and a Master of Science degree) from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). And then came her PhD in environmental science from the same University of Texas at Arlington, for which she wrote a dissertation on “Proximity to Airport and Cancer Incidences in Texas”.

Many people will be familiar with the adage that it takes a village to raise a child; that is what many friends and well wishers of the Senkayi family said during Sala’s graduation party. The proud parents could be seen beaming with excitement as speaker after speaker, spoke about their daughter’s achievement.

Emcee Frank Sentamu, added excitement to the evening when he suggested that the two doctors should change their names to Dr Senkayi Senior and Dr Senkayi Junior as a way of separating father and daughter.

The journey that first inspired the young Sala could be traced back to her childhood. According to her father, on the day he got his PhD, Sala ran to the stage, grabbed her Dad’s hat and put it on her own head, as if to suggest that one day she would wear her own. Several years passed but Dr Abu Senkayi did not imagine ever having the pleasure of participating in the hooding process of his only daughter.

The hooding process is normally reserved for the graduate’s major professor, but in one of those rare occasions when a parent of the student is a Doctorate degree holder, the pleasure and opportunity of carrying out this exercise is often passed on to the parent, which in this case was Dr Abu Senkayi an environmental scientist himself.

Sala owes her success to the inspiration and support of her parents, and brother Ali Senkayi, an electrical engineer. She is also quick to mention the collective effort of many other community friends and relatives who encouraged her along her academic journey.

Dr Abu Senkayi, an official Buganda Kingdom representative in North America, also mentioned that Sala had been involved in planning for Buganda cultural activities in Dallas. In 2001, young as she was, Sala played a prominent role during Kabaka Ronald Mutebi’s, visit to Dallas. The same was the case when the Nnabagereka of Buganda, Sylvia Nnaginda, visited in 2005.

The Senkayi family, originally from Kibibi in Butambala, left Uganda in the 1970s and settled in the United States. They visit Uganda regularly and were here only last December, to participate in the Ugandan Diaspora conference the Serena Hotel. Dr Sala is also an active community organizer who spends time going to schools and colleges to talk about Environmental protection.

Besides her commitment to the community, Sala maintains a full time job in the same office block and department with her father, at the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Her EPA mentor proudly noted, during the evening graduation dinner, that Sala is “a very dedicated girl, who takes her job very seriously and devotes a lot of time into everything she does.”

Before Sala joined her father as an EPA employee, the father remembers bringing her to the office on special days when employees are allowed to bring their children to the office. One could say that all this gave the little girl some early inspiration to follow in her dad’s footsteps.

But when asked why she chose environmental science Sala said: “I’m not trying to follow my dad’s footsteps per se, because I like Biology and my dad is a soil scientist. But I also like my dad because he is a cool guy!”

Sala says she enjoys her work environmental protection, and her fellowship in the Ugandan community. “Getting a degree is just part of the story” she says. “Making friends, helping each other, as Ugandan community members to advance each other, is what will help us succeed here in the Diaspora.”

With her five degrees, the single Dr Sala intends to keep her job at EPA, although she could go into academia; and she still cherishes working with children on environment-related programmes.

“I can now say that I’m free at last,” she says. “I have all the time I need to live and enjoy my life.”

Buganda Land Board’s Chief Executive Officer Kiwalabye Male

The Buganda Land Board wrote to the Uganda National Roads Authority (Unra) commission of inquiry raising concerns on land compensation.

The board noted that the Kabaka has never been compensated since the inception of Unra and that they demand nearly Shs 10 billion for Unra’s failure to pay the Kabaka. This prompted the commission to ask the Buganda Land Board chief executive officer, David Kyewalabye Male, to re-appear at the inquiry.

The inquiry, chaired by Justice Catherine Bamugemereire, has commissioners Patrick Rusongoza, Abraham Nkata, Ben Okello Luwum and Richard Mongati, with Andrew Kasirye as lead counsel. ZAHRA ABIGABA brings you excerpts from the proceedings:

Kasirye: What is your name?

Kyewalabye: I am David Kyewalabye Male.

Kasirye: How old are you?

Kyewalabye: I am 46 years old.

Kasirye: What do you do for a living?

Kyewalabye: I work as the chief executive officer of the Buganda Land Board.

Kasirye: When did you join the Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: Since February 2007.

Kasirye: What is the Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: The Buganda Land Board is a company mandated with the management of all the land vested in his royal highness the Kabaka of Buganda. This mandate includes the collection of all rental and related income accruing from the use of the Kabaka’s land, including compensation by the state and related organs or bodies.

Kasirye: What are the complaints you are bringing on behalf of the Kabaka and the Buganda Land Board against the Uganda National Roads Authority?

Kyewalabye: Our complaint as the Buganda Land Board on behalf of the Kabaka is with regard to the failure and the refusal by Unra to provide the Kabaka with compensation for the use and acquisition of large tracts of land in spite of various demands and reminders to pay. My lord, what puzzles us is that leasehold tenants and bibanja tenants continue to be compensated while the Kabaka is completely ignored.

Kasirye: Do you know the roads /areas affected and Unra never compensated?

Kyewalabye: The areas include Kibuye-Entebbe phase 2 which was completed in 1998 but up-to-date we have not seen any attempts at payment for Kibuye-Zzana (a 5km stretch), Kampala Northern bypass, Masanafu-Bukalagi-Namungona-Kasubi; all these have not been compensated yet works are going on. Then we have got the Entebbe expressway, which also includes the Munyonyo spur, Kigo, Lunya, Buggu-Kibiri-Kirindi and Mutungo, Mpigi-Maddu, Sembabule road, Lukalu B, Kiriti Sabwe hill, Kabasanda, Mirembe and Ngomanene villages. Mukono-Kyetume [the famous Katosi road], Kisoga-Nyenga road and the affected areas include Kiyola, Katosi central and Kiwologoma villages.

Kasirye: Are there any other complaints you have to table before the commission?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. There are titles given to third parties on the Kabaka’s land without going through the normal process and the areas affected are Munyonyo block 255 and plot 98. The Uganda land commission issued these titles [but] they were fraudulently acquired.

Kasirye: What does that particular road have to do with Unra?

Kyewalabye: The claimants at Munyonyo road have already contacted Unra with their fake titles and compensation is done. Again, the same block 93 where the Catholic shrine is, Mr Obey got the titles on the same piece of land and claims have been passed on to Unra and Unra seems to have recognised it and we are asking for the titles to be recalled and cancelled.

We, therefore, request the commission to go on with the investigations and verify all titles issued on this land before any payments are being made. Otherwise, we will suffer irrecoverable damages if these dubious payments are made at our own expense. And our humble prayer to the commission is that, ‘make all necessary recommendations to enable the payments of all dues that are by law ours.’

Kasirye: Is there any other thing you would like to add?

Kyewalabye: The issue with Kampala northern bypass, Unra took titles and has not returned them. Unfortunately, the Kabaka’s land titles comprise huge chunks of land, like 300-600 acres of land. Unra takes land titles and takes ages without returning them and this affects other tenants on the Kabaka’s land.

Kasirye: Do you know how much Unra is supposed to pay Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. It is close to Shs 10 billion.

Kasirye: And do you know the acreage of land to be compensated?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. It is close to 70 acres of land. And if Unra fails to pay the Buganda Land Board in the given time we have given them, then the matter will be taken to court.

Mongati: Mr Kyewalabye, I just want clarification. The normal procedure is that when they are paying kibanja owners, the mailo owner or superior owner must approve. Has this been done?

Kyewalabye: In some cases, my lord, but not all.

Mongati: So, are you saying that bibanja owners have been paid sometimes without the consent of the owner?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord.

Mongati: Do you know these cases?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. We have evidence, for instance on the Mpigi-Maddu road, but I think they are quite a number of them.

Nkata: Is the Kabaka’s land, wherever it is available, well demarcated? Are there maps and plans one can see?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. We have titles and in some areas the boundaries have been opened, but various consultants have been involved in these processes. They know how best you can arrive at this.

Nkata: For the interest of the general public, do people know where the Kabaka’s land starts and stops, especially in the central region?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord, they do.

Nkata: Soon Salama road is going to be worked on and I am aware that there are multiple land tenures on that road and the issue that has always been contagious is people claiming that they are on Kabaka’s land. Then there are also princesses and royals on that land that claim that it is their land and also landowners. Has this matter been clarified because, as the Munyonyo road will be worked on, this matter is likely to delay the public good because of that unclear demarcation of land? Can you assure the public that this matter has been sorted?

Kyewalabye: Thank you, my lord. As you are aware, the Kabaka is a land title holder, not kibanjas holder; so, once it is titled land, it is very clear with demarcations and we work with land surveyors. And even the various royals who hold land, they are also indicated on the titles and the 1993 Act that invested the land to Kabaka indicates the royals; either it’s the Namasole, Katikkiro, Omulamuzi. But once we have the titles, that is no problem.

We have always requested Unra to work with Buganda Land Board when it comes to Kabaka’s land. The Kabaka is a very big landlord, not somebody who just holds two or three acres of land. We are very committed to this because we are interested parties to the development of this country and, in any case, when these roads are done, the Kabaka benefits more because it uplifts the value of the land.

Bamugemereire: Thank you very much and we appreciate that you have found the commission useful in assisting you to investigate this matter further. We will do our best and I hope that you find the answers.

Kattikiro wa Buganda akyaye okwanirizibwa nga Kabaka wa Buganda---Owebweru?
On January 28, 2015, in a move that may surprise both his admirers and detractors, the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga announced that Buganda chiefs and other hosts must stop welcoming him to their areas in a manner which should be reserved for the Kabaka. The televised announcement came after more than a year of complaints by Baganda of different walks of life that the Katikkiro was trying to replace centuries-old Baganda cultural institutions and traditions by expanding his powers and responsibilities beyond what the Baganda constitution (Ennono) allows.

Addressing Ssaza (county) and Ggombolola (sub-county) chiefs, at Bulange Mengo, the Katikkiro told them that going forward, they must stop welcoming him in a style that befits the Kabaka. People must stop erecting archways (ebiyitirirwa) for him, prostrating before him and doing other things that should be reserved for welcoming the Kabaka. Speaking in Luganda, Mayiga said, “In the past I have been to many events where I am inappropriately welcomed, although I cannot blame you because of the high excitement you may have. However, you must reserve those types of welcomes for the Kabaka.”

Since he got his job, Mayiga has endured frequent criticism from members of the Buganda royal clan (Abalangira), Baganda youth organizations (Nkoba za Mbogo, BANGAWA and Ffe Buganda Nze Buganda), Baganda groups in Diaspora and many ordinary Baganda who accused him of, among other things, attempting to destroy Buganda’s cultural foundation. The fact that Katikkiro Mayiga has been a key player in several widely unpopular Buganda deals with President Museveni (Regional Tier and MOU) and, recently, the Aga Khan plan to commercialize the Kabaka’s Palace, has widened the divide between the Katikkiro and traditional Baganda of all shades.

One of the most visible and contraversial practices by Katikkiro Mayiga is his use of a large motorcade, with a heavy detail of AK-47 totting Uganda Special Forces soldiers which project military power on his tours around Buganda. And the fact that the tour organizers often erect archways (ebiyitirirwa) and hire boda-bodas (motorcycle taxis) to enhance crowds and excitement.  Many traditional Baganda allege that this is clear evidence that Mr. Mayiga is trying to overshadow the Kabaka and isolate him from his people. Mr. Mayiga’s announcement on Wednesday seems to have been directed at addressing this issue.

Notably, one group of people that has consistently stood behind Mr. Mayiga and his programs are certain Kampala traders, money lenders, sports betting operators and local real-estate investors. And for the most part, Mr. Mayiga’s wealthy supporters have helped him raise billions of shillings under his Ettofaali campaign. Even most of his detractors privately admit that Mayiga has done an impressive job in inspiring Baganda to wake up and believe that they do not want to be victims forever. Lately, however, there are signs that both Baganda and other Ugandans are starting to develop Ettofaali fatigue and the awakened Baganda seem to be expecting Katikkiro Mayiga to start delivering from the billions of Shillings that he has collected.

The audio recording below is one example of the many speeches that have been made in protest of  Mr. Mayiga’s policies. Ow’ek. Ssewava Sserubiri, former minister in Buganda Government, made that speech in mid-2014, at a party organized by Nkoba za Mbogo student’s organization.

Posted  Friday, February 20  2015

Traditional, religious and political leaders in Uganda, Kenya and York in Britain have paid homage to the late Bishop of the Equatorial Africa James Hannington at the Hannington Shrine in Budimo village, Busia District.

Religious leaders led by Archbishop of York John Sentamu, Bishop of Bukedi Diocese Simon Bogere Egesa and Bishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Tororo Emmanuel Obbo among others, attended the function on Wednesday.

For the first time in more than a century, the great grandsons of the chiefs of the two kingdoms where Bishop Hannington was loved and where he was killed, met.

Chief Luba Munulo Juma, the great grandson of chief Luba in whose dominion (Busoga) and on whose orders Hannington was killed, met with chief Peter Mumia II, the great grandson to Paramount chief of the Wanga Kingdom Nabongo Mumia, who had given Hannington porters and guides to Kabaka Mwanga’s palace.

The paramount chief later allowed Bishop Hannington’s remains to be buried in his territory at the cost of his people.

During his visit to the shrine, Archbishop Sentamu commissioned the construction of the administration block of Bishop of York Bible College, Canterbury Square, Hannington Tabernacle Chapel and the York Gardens in Budimo.

Sentamu’s visit was crowned by the ecumenical service conducted by bishops Bogere Egesa and Obbo.

The head of the organising committee, Justice James Ogoola, said Archbishop Sentamu’s visit was not only a religious symbol, but a reconciliation ceremony between the people of Luba in Uganda and their counterparts from Mumias in western Kenya.

“I wanted to reconcile the descendants of the two dramatists in Hannington’s last days. One gave him escorts and guides, the other killed him. The two families met for the first time and I made sure I gave each of them a Lusamia Bible and asked them to shake hands as a sign of reconciliation,” Justice Ogoola, also the chairperson of the Uganda Judicial Commission, said.

The place was first dedicated by then Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey in 1998, as a Hannington shrine.

Chief Luba Munulo Juma in his remarks said: “I don’t feel guilty for what my great grandfather did, the bishop died because of his stubbornness before the cultural leader.”

Chief Peter Mumia II said Bishop Hannington was a Christian not an explorer, killed by those who did not understand him.

More developments

According to Justice Ogoola, plans are also underway to make the shrine a national pilgrimage for Christians to remember Bishop Hannington for his sacrifice for the new Christian faith that had just arrived in the middle of the continent of Africa during 1888.


Nantaba wants elderly scheme probed

Kayunga. Outgoing Lands state minister Ida Nantaba has asked the Inspector General of Government to investigate how the outgoing Kayunga District leadership selected beneficiaries of the Senior Citizens Grant given to elderly persons.

Ms Nantaba, who is also the district Woman MP, claims the 100 elderly persons per sub-county in the district were selected based on sectarian and political grounds.

“It hurts me as a leader to find that more than 900 beneficiaries of the senior citizens’ grant in this district all come from the same area and are from almost one tribe. I ask the IGG to take interest in this matter and probe how these beneficiaries were selected,” Ms Nantaba said on Tuesday.

Take oath

This was during the swearing-in of the district LC5 chairperson, Mr Tom Sserwanga, and his councillors at Ntenjeru District headquarters.

The grant, one of the core components of the Social Assistance Grant for Empowerment, started in 2010 with financing by government and development partners.

Kayunga is among the districts where the programme will be rolled out during this financial year.

However, the Elderly and Disabled Affairs State minister, Mr Sulaiman Madada, dismissed the claims by Ms Nantaba, saying beneficiaries had been selected on merit.

The former district LC5 chairman, Mr Steven Dagada said: “The selection of beneficiaries was based on age, but also on who is in more need for assistance.”

The Constitutional Court has ruled that police was wrong to prevent the Kabaka of Buganda from visiting his subjects in Kayunga district on September 12, 2009.

In a majority ruling of three to two, Justices Remmy Kasule, Egonda–Ntende and Rubby Opio Aweri concurred with the four petitioners, all Buganda kingdom subjects, that it is everyone’s right to move freely, reside or settle in any part of the country. The judges concluded that the Kabaka was exercising his constitutional right of free movement.

“The role of the Uganda Police was to regulate and put in place security measures to ensure that both Baganda and the Banyala who had threatened to demonstrate over the said visit are safe,” the judges noted.

The judges ordered government to pay costs of the case to the petitioners. There is no compesation whatsover for those who lost their lives and property. Mr Edward Lugonvu, Dr Adam Kimala, Mr Charles Ssenkungu and Ms Saida Najjuka. However, two of the judges - Eldard Mwangusya and Prof Lillian Tibatemwa, dissented and agreed with the government that blocking the Kabaka’s visit was to ensure peace because there was imminent chaos.

In Uganda, as the Uganda Army brutalised the Makerere University students, the Courts ordered the unconditional release of all those arrested:


One of the lecturers joined the strike as he was not at all happy with such behaviour by the African military Police:

October 25, 2019


Police arrest a student

Police arrest a student


Buganda Road Magistrate's court has ordered for the unconditional release of 46 Makerere University students who were arrested for protesting against 15 per cent tuition increment.

Court presided over by the acting chief magistrate Robert Mukanza issued the order on Friday following an exparte application filed by human rights lawyer Eron Kiiza.

“It is hereby ordered that the applicants, students of Makerere University be unconditionally released and every police officer is directed to comply with this order," reads the magistrate's order in part. 


The Uganda Military Police do not want to take the responsibility of it all 

Kiiza contends that the students have been in police custody since October 23 without being presented in any courts of law. On Wednesday, more than 100 students of Makerere University were arrested during protests against the 2018 University Council's decision to cumulatively increase tuition by up to 65 per cent (15 per cent annually) on all undergraduate programs every academic year. 

Meanwhile, more videos are emerging showing barbaric Uganda People's Defence Forces brutality against students. In one video sent to The Observer, soldiers are captured on camera flogging students, forcing them to roll half-naked on the tarmac while some a kicked near Lumumba hall.

It is unclear what the students had done to warrant such illegal torture meted on them. On Tuesday and Thursday army personnel raided Lumumba and United Hall (UH) and broke into student rooms, indiscriminately beating whoever they came a

Some of the students' property like television sets, laptops, computers and mobile phones were destroyed. Students also reported that soldiers were extorting money from them at night so as to spare them arrest. Some students are still hospitalised with some reporting broken limbs following the army beatings. 


But despite the continued highhandedness of the police and army, the strike entered into day three but it was not as intense as the past two days. Earlier today, security officers attempted to pounce on a Uganda Radio Network journalist, Davidson Ndyabahika who was capturing the events at Makerere but retreated after the other journalists from other media houses formed a human shield around him in solidarity.

Prof Ben Twinomugisha of School of Law has also laid down tools in protest against the brutality meted out on students last night when the army broke into students rooms and started beating them indiscriminately. In a social media post, Twinomugisha said he can't continue to look on and pretend everything is normal at Makerere when students rights are being tramped on. 

Prof Ben Twinomugisha

"I will not step at Makerere today. I must rebel individually in protest against the vulgar, indespicable, horrendous mistreatment of students. What happened in Lumumba is reminiscent of Amin soldiers' brutal treatment of students and lecturers. Anyone pretending that the situation is normal is like the proverbial ostrich - hiding his or her head under the sand." he wrote.

On the continent of Africa, Sudan's former President, Omar el Bashir got $90 million euros from Saudi Arabia to use as he wanted, an investigator has told the courts of law in Sudan:



Added 19th August 2019


His relatives in the courtroom chanted "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest), to which he responded with the same words.

Police Brigadier Ahmed Ali said at the opening of Bashir's corruption trial, which an AFP correspondent attended, that the former president told him that the latest payment was "delivered by some of Mohammed bin Salman's envoys".
Bashir, whose military Islamist regime ruled Sudan for 30 years, arrived at the Judicial and Legal Science Institute where the trial is taking place in a huge military convoy.
Inside the courtroom, he was sitting in a metal cage, unshaven and wearing a white traditional gown.
His relatives in the courtroom chanted "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest), to which he responded with the same words.

The former strongman was forced from power on April 11 after months of protests. A transitional constitution meant to guide Sudan towards civilian rule was officially signed on Saturday.
Bashir faces a raft of charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide from the International Criminal Court over his role in the war in Sudan's western Darfur region.
However, the jailed leader appeared in court Monday on charges of receiving and possessing foreign funds illegally.

The police investigator told the court that nearly seven million euros ($7.8 million) were found at Bashir's residence, as well as smaller amounts in US dollars and Sudanese pounds.
"The accused told us that the money was part of a sum of $25 million sent to him by Prince Mohammed bin Salman to be used outside of the state budget," Ahmed Ali said.
The investigator said Bashir had said he also received two previous payments of $35 million and $30 million from Saudi's King Abdullah, who died in 2015.
The investigator said Bashir had said the Saudi money was exchanged and spent and that he could not remember how nor did he have documents providing further details.

The Kampala legendary tycoon , Gordon Balaba Kasibante Wavamunno is going to sue the reporters who misquoted him that he does not like the current President of Uganda:














Kampala legendary tycoon Gordon Balaba Kasibante Wavamunno has poured out his heart like never before daring President Museveni, whose bush war he risked financing, to tell him what the Wava family did to him to deserve so much torment and economic marginalization.

By World Media

17th July, 2019

Wava says he did many great things for President Museveni (waving) and the country but the man from Rwakitura has paid him back with torment

The 76-year-old businessman from Rugaaga in Isingiro district (who has always been known to be grumbling quietly) broke his silence recently when he hosted 6 eminent journalists/political pundits at his 3 square mile size commercial farm in Nakwero near Gayaza.

These are Peter Kibazo, Ahamed Kateregga Musaazi, Charles Rwomushana, Aisha Kabanda Nalule, Siraje Lubwama and New Vision editor John Kakande. Every Saturday, these converge at Bukoto-based/Wava-owned Radio Simba to participate in Gasimbagane ne Bannamawulire [face the journalists], which by far is a leading weekend Luganda radio program airing 10-12pm. It airs on Simba 97.3fm and its moderated by Kibazo, one of Uganda’s most  knowledgeable and well-read talk show hosts.


Wavamunno with dear wife Morine

Among those Wava hosted, two (Kabanda & Rwomushana) were until not very long-ago influential assistants in President Museveni’s office but have since turned into avid critics of his regime. Veteran journalist Siraje
Lubwama has this Tuesday morning published excerpts of what a tearful Wava told them while at the farm and published them in “Ono Bwino,” a Luganda weekly paper famous for insightful political reporting. It’s actually one of Uganda’s two leading Luganda newspapers the other being Bukedde.


Wava, who is also a diplomat being the consular for Hungary in Uganda, recalled then rebel leader YK Museveni sneaking into his home along with his 2nd in command Eriya Kategaya at the beginning of the NRA war. They used tricks and borrowed his monstrous Benz vehicle saying they had luggage of clothes to transport for the fighters.

He says this was untrue because in actual sense they loaded it with guns which Museveni, having curiously disappeared from Kategaya, dropped in different places including Ntinda and Mathew Rukikaire’s home in Makindye.
Wava, who has been a self-made tycoon since the 1960s as a young man, says he is shocked Museveni has never returned his Benz nor found time to have any discussion about it. He maintains the two rebel leaders were clear they were borrowing as opposed to permanently taking his Benz. Wava says he was shocked to read in Kategaya’s book (Impassioned by Freedom) that Museveni
 told him (Eriya) that he returned the Benz to owner Wava which isn’t true.

The influential Muganda tycoon, whose father Yovani Wavamunno only migrated
to Ankole to take up the job of Muluka chief, had no kind words for President Museveni throughout his encounter with the big-name media personalities at the farm.

Describing him as a user who never remembers those who stand with him in difficult times, Wava also recalled the President’s mother Ester Kokundeka lodging out in his garage as her son executed the NRA war against Obote. That Wava tasked his young brother John Kamya Wavamunno to always deliver food and ensure the old lady had a good time from the refugee of his own home but Museveni paid back the family by being spiteful. He says in 1999 when Kamya was arrested for participating in a robbery targeting a Barclays Bank bullion van along Entebbe road from which $20,000 was stolen, Museveni ensured the man was jailed longer than even what the judge had decreed in the final sentence.
Siraje Lubwama quotes Wava as telling the senior Gasimbagane scribes that, whereas Kamya’s other co-convicts were jailed for 20 years up to 2015 as court decreed, President Museveni ensured Kamya stayed in jail for three years longer. He adds that as a result, Kamya who was a very rich man lost many things and by the time he was freed, a vast component of his large estate was gone.

Wava told the group that as a family they economically lost lot of things, on top of the risk they took associating with Museveni in such a big way, but are surprised the man from Rwakitura has paid them by visiting so much torment on them as a family. “We did a lot and lost many things for his sake but because of the fatigue he now suffers from, he forgot everything. He is clearly taxing us out of business and that is how my WBS, which was the most prominent TV in Uganda, went under and was taken from me. My brother John Kamya who looked after his mother and fed her from my garage had to be jailed longer than the courts had ruled,” Wava is quoted as saying.

Wava’s latest book sharing his insights on the failings of all Ugandan regimes since Independence. The 138 narrative is equally critical of the Museveni era.

Wava, who is a close confidante of Tamale Mirundi (of the Abanyampi fame), has lately been speaking with anger about the Museveni system including appearing on Kabaka’s BBS TV to curse the NRM for shunning and mistreating his best friend Apollo Nsibambi who died recently.  Using the same BBS, Wava has equally been very outspoken against state brutality meted out on
Bobi Wine and Kizza Besigye supporters. His other confidante Minister Amelia Kyambadde, rumored to be equally disgruntled, had much earlier cried out against state brutality after her protégé Mohammed Nsereko was brutally picked from his home.


Gloria Wavamunno is among the business-active children Wava referred to in his chat with senior scribes

After narrating several injustices, he believes have deliberately been occasioned unto him, clearly aimed at economically crippling him, Wava turned and asked his guests: “As a family we deservedly want to know what did we do to this man [Museveni] to deserve such maltreatment. He has punished us too much. I’m a businessman who has made myself for all this period but why should Museveni viciously target me to lose much of my business empire in such a way?”

 As he declined their request to interact with Kamya, Wava said as a family they need time to first establish what they exactly did to Museveni. “I know many of those people who came from the bush but just, like Museveni, they have all not remembered me,” an emotionally broken Wava is quoted to have told his guests. “I have helped many of those people. I’m the one who got Mbabazi from the village when he was still wearing short trousers. I carried him on my truck which was carrying offals to Kampala and he at least remembers me. Even Gilbert Bukenya I helped him a lot.”


Peter Kibazo (L), the very reflective Gasimbagane moderator who led fellow scribes to the Nakwero encounter.

Some pundits think Wava’s disgruntlement with the Museveni system began in 2007 when his contract to transport Chogm guests was cancelled at the last minute in favor of another company and his Spear Motors took government to court for that repudiation.

He told his guests that taxation is manipulatively being used as a weapon to cripple his businesses and turn him into a pauper. That his Wava water is being overtaxed to create room for foreign investors. Referencing on the Lubowa hospital investor, Wava said the Museveni state these days favors what he called Mafia foreign investors while strangling indigenous entrepreneurs like himself.

He added that even at Nakawa where his Spear Motors is headquartered, there have been efforts to use KCCA to distort his lease holding and get him out of the way. That outrageous demands were made requiring him to develop the place much faster than he could afford to mobilize the finances to erect the developments that were being required of him.
Wava told them there are many unappreciated contributions he continues to make to build Uganda as a private entrepreneur including employing many Ugandans scaling his monthly wage bill to over Shs1bn. He turned and told his visitors: “Once I begin to enumerate the things I have done for Museveni and this government; I’m afraid you people may have to spend a night in Nakwero. [Referring to the accommodation facilities, he added] The
good thing I have been developing this place for a long time ago during Amin’s time and you can’t fail to get where to comfortably sleep.”

He enumerated some of the businesses he, as a patriot, has founded to develop this nation and these include a farm in Karamoja, another at Equator, Radio Simba and Nile Bank out of which he says he was frustrated by people using politics and extreme taxation clearly aimed at discriminating him out of business.
Wava, who is also a close confidante of the Kabaka, told his guests that over taxation forced him to sell his Nile Bank shares to Barclays Bank. He
says he has also had to buy out some local-owned businesses after the original proprietors becoming very frightened of over taxation. As he repeatedly kept calmly saying “Museveni what did we do to you?” Wava also reflected on Sudhir Ruparelia wondering how he made so much money in such a short time. He recalled Sudhir being a forex dealer closely working with Nile Bank. He contrasted this with hard-working tycoons with a verifiable record of hard work who have had to sell off their possessions to overcome being jailed for defaulting on bank loans.


Wava, whose ancestry is in Kooki Rakai district, told his guests that even some few family members who doubted Museveni hates them confirmed recently when his brother Pidson Wavamunno died and the President showed no sympathy yet they expected hearing from him. Pidson lived at a place called Gaba Mission in Makindye Division. Wava says that the H.E. didn’t send any message yet this was a well-known person. Neither was there any official representation from government. Only Kampala Minister Beti Kamya attended the requiem mass and this was in her personal capacity as a family friend and someone from Kooki too.
Wava says Kampala Minister Beti Kamya was the only government official at the funeral of his brother Pidson recently & she came in personal capacity.


Wava, whose Nakwero complex comprises farming activities, a museum and accommodation facilities, told his guests that just like Museveni who joined politics at a younger age, he too plunged into business as a young man and its all he knows. He spoke about the importance of transition in everything narrating how he has gradually been exiting the day to day management and running of his business empire to his children and called on Museveni to do the same: prepare to leave politics within NRM and the country to the younger actors. “I’m only now an advisor as the children run all my businesses. Museveni should cleverly be advised to leave the country in 2021. Let him identify a young man he can trust and hand over to that one,” Wava advised as he saw off his guests.



Wavamunno has published his memoir so that he can, dispel these reports about his fallout with the long serving President of Uganda:


The top cover of the book of Mr Gordon B.K. Wavamunno


Sir Gordon Wavamunno, the business mogul behind Spear Motors, has authored his latest memoir: Independent Uganda: Reflections and Recollections.

In the 140-page book, Wavamunno mainly offers his views on Uganda’s economy right from the colonial days. He also delves into the influence of politics in business, plus how Uganda can build on external relations to improve the economy.

Wavamunno also reveals his brief stint in politics when he was a councillor in Kampala in the seventies and why the politics of intrigue forced him to quit politics for good. 


Wavamunno, who was knighted by the Queen of United Kingdom for his services towards charity, further talks about how his experience as the Hungarian consul to Uganda has helped both countries explore trade opportunities, and offers advice on how to guard Uganda’s best interests.

“I wrote this book as an educative composition of my experience in business, politics and diplomacy,” he told The Observer on July 10. “I hope to formally launch the book in a few weeks’ time after putting everything in order.”

Meanwhile, Wavamunno says he holds no grudge with the state in spite of the recent media reports that he is discontented.

“I have been briefed that some media outlets claim that I’m disgruntled but my relationship with President Museveni remains solid. That is defamation and I’ve already instructed my lawyers to sue them for defamation,” he said.

“I and the president update each other on so many things but it seems there are some elements that want to feast on my name to get the president’s eye.”

President Museveni of Uganda's political donation money has reached the rate of Shs 200 billion every year:

May 15, 2019

Written by Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda



 The President of Uganda recently gave out tax payers money to the Uganda Orthodoxy church for the church to prosper.


Eastern Orthodox theology is based on the Nicene Creed. The church teaches that it is the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic church established by Jesus Christ in his Great Commission, and that its bishops are the successors of Christ's apostles.


As a diversion and cover up, Gen Yoweri Museveni is attacking MPs, his usual punch bag and scapegoat for many failures.

While presiding over a function to launch a book on his contribution to the Muslims in Uganda two weeks ago, Museveni attacked MPs for increasing their allowances. He also used the same function at Saza ground in Kasangati to attack me and Kyadondo MP Robert Kyagulanyi. We - Kyagulanyi and I - are the reason people in this area are poor.

The civil society, especially a group calling itself Budget Advocacy something, even addressed a press conference to attack MPs. They reasoned and rightly so that the about Shs 63 billion that MPs have budgeted for fuel refund can actually help buy medicine if given to National Medical Stores (NMS).


My opinion on MPs and their allowances is now known. But I can restate it for purposes of this article.  I think Uganda can do better with less than 200 MPs. I also think these MPs (200) should be properly facilitated. We are now 450. I have also presented a motion for a motor vehicle loan scheme which government requested to stay.

Back to the MPs’ allowances. There is a proposal in the budget to calculate MPs’ mileage allowance as per the pump fuel price. At the moment, we are paid, I think, about Shs 3,600 per litre. Because our mileage is calculated in terms of litres required, I think it makes sense to keep adjusting it when fuel prices go up or down.

That is the proposal in the budget. It is to bring the cost to the pump price. Trouble is that because of the huge numbers involved, any adjustment ends up in billions. And parliament is not an easy group to defend. There are many unforgivable mistakes we have individually and collectively made. Our performance remains questionable.

The budget of parliament has, for example, as a result of these adjustments, now gone to Shs 561 billion. This means that the tax-papers are spending Shs 1.5 billion on parliament every day. This is the money that parliament requires to pay about 400 members of staff, 450 MPs, building a new chamber because of numbers, building a new parking because of numbers and buying all sorts of things from vehicles to furniture.

This is a big figure considering that the total budget for the judiciary is Shs 151 billion only. The country in fact needs more judges and magistrates than MPs. Unfortunately, Museveni these days also donates constituencies and districts.

Be that as it may, I think the media and civil society have naively misdirected the debate on the budget. For example, the media has not informed the public that Museveni’s budget for donation has jumped from Shs 80 billion of last year to Shs 200 billion in the next budget. Mulago hospital budget is Shs 71 billion.

This is one of the items to be financed under State House budget. In total, State House budget has grown from Shs 274 billion in 2018 to Shs 407 billion. And by the way, Uganda Heart Institute needs Shs 256 billion to build and equip itself, which is not provided for in the budget. And Museveni has given himself another Shs 68 billion for classified expenditure under State House. Classified expenditure under Defence is now over Shs 600 billion.

What the public must know is that a big portion of this money that is being splashed is borrowed money. If you look at what the ministry of Finance calls resource envelope, our budget will be Shs 40 trillion.

The item that will consume more money is interest payment at over Shs 3 trillion. And nearly half the budget will be financed by borrowed money. We will borrow Shs 6 trillion to pay money we have picked from commercial banks through treasury bills and bonds. We will also borrow more than Shs 7 trillion from external sources such as the World Bank to finance roads and other projects.

It is the reason our debt as a country is now, I think, over $12 billion yet our total GDP is $27 billion. I know stories about MPs are sensational but we need to discuss abuse of public resources in general.

Museveni’s ostentatious expenditure should receive the same amount of publicity as that of MPs. In fact between Museveni and MPs, our money can be redirected to better use. Maybe the country has given up on Museveni. The MPs and parliament are a legitimate target over budget but let us not use them to let the man himself escape.

The author is Kira Municipality MP and opposition chief whip in parliament.


This is a good article that brings out to mind for many citizens of Uganda the question of what type of a leader should this country expect when this big spender ends his reign? 

Should one say multiply the future leader's expenditure by 2 to make 400 billion for his 1st term in office and 200 billion for his 2 term of office? 

Should one now say that the race is on for an African to win the national lottery of 600 billion Uganda Shillings in the next 12 years in Uganda?


Or in a different perspective, even if the current Uganda leader has told the public that he is already rich, that for President M7 to stay put in power for the next 12 years, the amount of expenditure he will have managed to make at the above rate since 1986 for 40 years to 2026 will be in the range of 24,000 billion shillings as Presidential donation money.

General elections will be held in Nigeria on 23 February 2019, postponed from 16 February 2019, to elect the President, Vice President and the National Assembly. They will be the sixth quadrennial elections since the end of military rule in 1999. Presidential primaries were held during the last six months of 2018.

Above is the confusion going on as some election agents have their results made up before these National Elections are done with:







There is no opposition in Uganda, but happy people on either side:

1st March, 2019

Written by Yusuf Serunkuma

 The historical handshake between opposing Presidential candidates from the same tribal Province 


Modern autocracies – which organize elections, have a semi-independent judiciary, and relatively free press – are never defeated via the ballot box.

They are knocked out way before an election. In fact, the election is simply icing on the cake. Now, since violent rebellion and coups (through which traditional autocrats were kicked out of office) ceased being acceptable means of protest after the Cold War, streets of capital cities became the new battlegrounds: Hosni Mubarak, Robert Mugabe, Ben Ali, Omar Al-Bashir, Abdelaziz Bouteflika know this so well.

The Arab uprisings confirmed to us that major towns were not only business and administrative centers, but also legitimate battlegrounds for regime change. Interestingly, although the fighters here need no guns – but determination and tact – they can be killed.

Perhaps the biggest victory that opposition forces managed to pull off in Congo was stampeding Joseph Kabila from standing in the 2019 election cycle. So was Zimbabwe recently, and now Omar Al Bashir. In Congo, victory came way before the election – and remains the biggest achievement of that political cycle.

Most importantly, it was not the mainstream opposition politicians that brought about this victory, but ordinary folks (and the Catholic church). There are lessons to learn for ordinary folks in Uganda expecting speedier change of leadership from Mr Museveni to someone else. [Of course, Museveni will leave office, but if one wants to contribute to Museveni’s exit, and not leave matters to God, there are lessons from elsewhere on the continent].

Across sub-Saharan Africa, opposition politicians tend to suffer three main afflictions – especially since most of them join politics as an escape from poverty: (a) After a period, they become comfortable in their settled careers as opposition politicians. These careers grant them fame and plenty of material benefits for a happy life.

They are the celebrities of town. They are our new role models. They get invited to prime-time TV and radio shows, and are guests of honor at both public and private functions. (b) They become compromisable, or are easily compromised by offers of material and spiritual benefits from the state. (c) because of a predictable ‘opposition routine,’ the state often develops a fine (both violent or legal) methodology of dealing with the opposition.

Over a period, the state crafts laws that are dangerous for opposition activities, and through tax authorities and banks, they could be bankrupted if need be. To this end, opposition politicians are mere artistes, and terrible cowards. While they perform and appear to be angry against the state, they are cautious enough not to lose their comfort.

This is the state of affairs in Kampala, and instead of having an opposition, Ugandans have happy people on either side. Thus, for Ugandans interested in being a part of the transition from Museveni to someone else (the easiest is sitting back and wait for President Museveni to suffer a heart attack, God forbid), do not bank on established opposition groups for leadership and guidance.

Ordinary folks have to drive the movement. Political celebrities in the FDC, DP, UPC are heavily constrained but also happy to continue their lives – and careers as opposition politicians. There is an example of a Congolese small grassroots movement called La- Lucha, which should give Ugandans some learning.

Formed in 2012, La-Lucha, which translates as struggle for change, started organizing small inside homes of activists. Most of them were everyday people, teachers, laborers and university students. Some would even miss school for the struggle. Focused on bringing change to DRC’s political fortunes under Kabila, these met and meticulously planned their next steps.

Among other things, they cleaned market squares, opened clogged drainage channels and sketchily fixed potholes in roads. At the end of every communal activity, they sensitized communities about their movements and about how the regime of Joseph Kabila had handed them unmeasurable suffering.

They often protested and were often arrested. However, from detention, they would be received in churches and allowed to speak to congregants. The state came down harder on them and in mid 2018, one of its most vocal founders, Luc Nkulula was burned in his house.

But steadily, the movement grew bigger and powerful, inspiring several others. An accumulation of these movements reset the political agenda for the country and that is how the world changed in DRC. My point is this: ordinary folks need to start organizing – meticulously and methodically.

In Uganda, the extreme corruption by the Minister of Foreign Affairs in the NRM government of Uganda has not been stopped for many years now:


1st January, 2019


By the World Media


Kutesa named among World’s richest men sheltering huge amounts of cash in offshore tax havens:

Mr Sam Kahamba Kutesa born 1 February 1949 is a Ugandan-Rwanda politician and lawyer. He is now the Minister of Foreign Affairs a position he has held since 13 January 2005 and maintained through three cabinet reshuffles. He is also the elected Member of the Uganda Democratic Parliament. (MP) for Mawogola County in Sembabule District. He was the President of the United Nations General Assembly during its 69th Session in 2014-2015

Uganda’s Foreign Minister, Sam Kutesa has been named in Paradise Papers- a global investigation that reveals the offshore activities of some of the world’s most powerful people, Multinational companies, wealthy individuals, heads of state, politicians and sports stars from around the world.


The Paradise Papers outline the tax and financial affairs of hundreds of people and companies connected to Appleby and the 19 tax havens, with many appearing to have invested or sheltered huge amounts of cash in offshore tax havens
Kutesa is listed with some of the biggest names to emerge so far include the Queen, Facebook and Donald Trump’s cabinet members and advisers.
The report says, Sam Kahamba Kutesa Uganda’s foreign minister and former president of the United Nations General Assembly during its 2014-2015 session, created the Obuyonza Discretionary Trust in the Seychelles in 2012. The trust held shares in the Seychelles Company Katonga Investments Ltd.


Hon. Kuteesa created the trust, watched over its administration and was one of its beneficiaries.
Kutesa’s daughter, Ishta, also is listed as a beneficial owner as well as a future recipient of money from the trust. An internal Appleby document from 2015 reported that the company’s intended activities were “consultancy, investments, trading and airport services in Uganda.”
The money for Katonga was to come from Enhas Uganda Ltd., another Kutesa entity, Appleby’s notes state.
Kutesa has owned Enhas, a ground-handling service at Uganda’s Entebbe Airport, since the 1990s.
In 1998, a Ugandan parliamentary committee named Kutesa and another co-owner in a report criticizing the privatization that helped create Enhas and led to its lucrative airport contract. The report concluded that the privatization had been “manipulated and taken advantage of by a few politically powerful people who sacrifice the people’s interests.”

As part of a periodic review in 2015, Appleby labeled Kutesa’s companies a “high risk,” given his political role and media reports of alleged corruption and bribery involving Kutesa. Kutesa told Appleby that the purpose of the trust was to separate his government income “from his personal assets and belongings.”
In 2015, however, Appleby noted that the companies connected to the trust were dormant and that “it seems that nothing such is being done.”
Kutesa confirmed to International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ’s) media partner in Uganda, The Daily Monitor, that he established the companies, but “I have never done anything with it at all. I told Appleby to close it many years ago.”

He said he had registered a company in Uganda and is paying taxes. “I thought you could avoid, not evade, taxes but I found it was not practical, and unnecessary,” Kutesa told the Daily Monitor. “I don’t have anything to hide.”


Why is it controversial to put money offshore?


Offshore tax havens typically offer low or zero tax rates to non-residents who keep money there.
Experts estimate that around $10 trillion (£7.6 trillion) is held offshore around the world.

That money would potentially otherwise be taxed in the owner’s home country, meaning governments are potentially missing out on billions in revenue.

Okwetegereza ensi Buganda bweyali elabika mu kibuga Kampala 1961

31 December, 2018


Introduced by bazzukulubabuganda international network media:


Kampala emyaka 57 emabega.





In Uganda, the Opposition members, Mr Bobi Wine and Mr Besigye are fighting it out over African tribal Sentiment:

Mr Kizza Besigye

"I’m no African tribalist"


Written by Baker Batte and Simon Rasmussen



Bobi Wine

Mr Bobi Wine


In a video that has since gone viral, Col Kizza Besigye brought a new meaning to the popular People Power slogan Twebereremu, which loosely translates in English as get involved.

The retired colonel suggested the word is a coded catch phrase that carries tribal undertones that could stoke tribal conflicts in the country. Speaking in an interview, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine, the Kyadondo East MP and leader of the People Power Movement, said he is not a tribalist, he has never been and will never be.

He said much as Besigye has since offered clarity to his earlier statements and apologised, he felt offended that he can be portrayed however, subtly, as a tribalist by the four time presidential candidate. 

“I’m not a tribalist and I don’t believe in tribalism whatsoever. I despise people who have tribalistic thoughts. Just like slangs that have been brought like Tubalemese [let’s sabotage them], Twebereremu means; let everybody get involved [in the struggle]. When you look at me and the people close to me, they come from all over the country. When you look at the person I’m married to [Barbara Itungo, who comes from western Uganda] and listen to my message; you will not classify me as a tribalist,” he said, adding, “I’m actually very glad that Dr KB came out and apologised for that misquotation. I hope that helps people understand that I Bobi Wine and People Power are not tribalists. I pray that the constant engagement as leaders will help brothers from FDC and People Power understand that we are not fighting against each other but we are fighting for each other,” Bobi Wine said.

He dismissed as false speculation that there is bad blood between him and Besigye. He said he visits the retired colonel at his home in Kasangati and calls him often.

“The last time I had a phone conversation with Dr KB was yesterday, [last Monday] I called him, he didn’t call me. I have visited him a couple of times and I know that one day I will be able to convince him to see things the way I see them that is if he doesn’t already see them the way I see them. He is somebody I respect and I think he is somebody who is resourceful, somebody who has a lot of experience we have to tap into as young leaders.”

He said however, that young people too have qualities and abilities Besigye can tap into.


“My desire is to be the link between various mind sets, various tribes, various groupings and various generations,” Bobi Wine said.

He however, added that people who have been in politics for some time have a challenge in understanding the emerging leaders and their way of doing things.

“We want to make sure that our elders understand us so that we are not misunderstood to be tribalists. Those in the opposition with us must understand that there is no need for us to fight each other. This is not about who has fought President Museveni longest but a question of how we can free ourselves. Everyone has a role to play. There is nothing like being a professional politician. The struggle does not belong to anybody; there is no forever flag bearer of the struggle; all of us are equally important and we should embrace and respect each other and give each other a chance to contribute to the struggle,” he said

Ban on Music shows

Bobi Wine also vowed to use all the legal means available to fight the police ban on his music shows. Police recently issued a statement banning Bobi Wine’s music shows. His show in Jinja was blocked by police at the weekend and he escaped arrest. Similarly his Boxing Day concert at his One Love beach in Busabala was also blocked. 

He said police has not given him any reason whatsoever for stopping his shows.


“It should be known to everybody that police is operating in an illegal manner and the number one perpetrator of impunity. They are charged with keeping law and order but now they are the custodian of unlawfulness and disorder. It should be remembered that last year when police first blocked my concerts, I went to court but that case is yet to be heard up to now. I have written protest letters to the Inspector General of Police but he has not yet responded. I have walked to his office and I was made to wait for four hours without seeing him,” he said, adding that, “…Even when the director of operations [Asuman Mugyenyi] came to see me, all he said was he cannot give us answers to all the questions we were raising and that the orders they were effecting were orders from above,” Bobi Wine said.

He said he will petition all human rights platforms and parliament among others, to see that his right to a earn a living is protected.

“There are two things; we are either going to get justice or we are going to expose injustice wherever it is. Order from above in Uganda means an order from President Museveni and indeed he told Hon Asuman Basalirwa during the Ipod meeting [last week] that he will not allow me to freely exercise and practice my profession. I don’t know where he gets that power from. One thing I know is that our institutions have crumbled and can no longer act independently but we are not giving up because we believe in right over wrong, in good over evil and we believe justice will prevail no matter how long it takes.” He said what is happening to him is not surprising at all since he has seen injustices unleashed on many other leaders who have come before him.

“One thing we want to guarantee is that we are the last generation that is going to suffer this injustice because we are going to put it to an end. It was not in my expectation that the regime would be so scared of me to this extent. But I would be lying to say that all this impunity and highhandedness was not expected. You have seen how Museveni has treated all voices of dissent and I’m not any different. But the only difference is that we are the generation that is going to send Museveni home and all this impunity is going to end.”


One reckon this Young man Bob Wine is in his thirties or forties like the current President of Uganda in 1986. President M7 came to power preaching the same message to Africans to hate their tribal tendency. That we all Africans in Uganda should embrace the Republic of Uganda with his new NRM constitution. God knows now which sort of people are entitled to people power. The Jaluwos, or Ankole, or Ssese Island people? One thinks that the People Power are well written in the current NRM constitution as about 15 African Tribes. These tribes sat together and formulated by an international agreement to make a country known very well as Uganda.

Yattottodde ebyamutuuseeko ku lugendo lw’e Kooki nga November 27, 2018, abeebyokwerinda bwe baasoose okumugaanira e Masaka okweyongerayo nga kigambibwa nti Kamuswaga yabadde yeemulugunya nti teyategeezeddwaako mu kukyala kwa Katikkiro.

Mu lukiiko lwa Buganda, Mayiga yakangudde ku ddoboozi n’ategeeza nti eriyo abaagala okwawulayawula mu Buganda kyokka n’abakontola nti beerimba kubanga endagaano Mmengo gye yakola ne gavumenti eya wakati, erambika bulungi nti Kooki, n’ebitundu nga Bugerere ne Buluuli bya Buganda.

Kabaka Ronald Mutebi II ne Pulezidenti Museveni bassa emikono ku ndagaano nga August 1, 2013 mwe bakkaanyizza ku nsonga ezaali zirudde nga zigulumbya Buganda ne gavumenti eya wakati era mu nnyingo ebintu omukaaga gavumenti bye yeeyama mwalimu n’okussa ekitiibwa ku buwaayiro bwa Konsitityusoni okuwa Kabaka eddembe okutambula wonna w’ayagala mu Uganda awatali amukuba ku mukono.

Gavumenti bwe yamala okuzzaawo Obwakabaka nga July 31, 1993, Kabaka Mutebi II lwe yatikkirwa, Pulezidenti yayogerera mu lukiiko lwa Buganda olwatuula nga August 2, 1993 mu Bulange e Mmengo n’awabula gavumenti ya NRM ezzizzaawo Obwakabaka okugatta so ssi kutemaatema mu bantu.


Mayiga yasula Masaka mu Brovad Hotel ku Mmande nga November 26, nga yeetegekera olugendo lw’e Kooki mu disitulikiti y’e Rakai enkeera ku Lwokubiri nga November 27, 2018 okukyalira abalimi ab’enjawulo mu nteekateeka eya “Emmwaanyi Terimba”.

Nga tannasimbula yafuna obubaka okuva ew’omuduumizi wa poliisi mu ttunduttundu ly’e Masaka, Latif Zaake nga bwe waliwo obutali butebenkevu gy’alaga nti obugenyi bwe e Kooki bwali bwolekedde okusajjula embeera n’asaba basooke boogeremu ku nsonga zino.

Olwo Poliisi yali eyiye basajja baayo abawanvu n’abampi mu Masaka n’e Kooki ng’abalala bali ku wooteeri Brovad.

Ebimotoka bya Poliisi ebigumbulula okwekalakaasa n’ebifuuwa ttiyaggaasi nga biri bulindaala. Zaake, n’ab’ebyokwerinda abalala nga Dan Atwine, Maj. Livingstone Luttamaguzi akola nga RISO w’ekitundu kino n’abalala baagenda ku wooteeri eno okusisinkana Katikkiro n’ekibinja kya baminisita kye baali nakyo.

Minisita w’Ebyobulimi, Vincent Ssempijja n’omuduumizi w’enkambi y’amagye ey’e Kasajjagirwa nabo oluvannyuma beegatta mu kafubo akaamala essaawa ssatu ng’enjuyi zonna zigulumba n’ensonga.

Mu kusalira ensonga eno amagezi, Katikkiro wa Uganda, Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda yakubirwa essimu bwatyo n’alagira abeebyokwerinda okuleka Mayiga agende e Kooki.

Ensonda zaategeezezza nti Katikkiro Rugunda yasooka kwebuuza ku Pulezidenti Museveni eyasalawo nti Mayiga agende mu maaso n’olugendo lwe kasita abeebyokwerinda bakakasa nti tewaliiwo mbeera eyinza kuvaamu kuyiwa musaayi n’okutabangula emirembe.

Kigambibwa nti kino kyakkaanyizibwako ku ssaawa nga 5:00 ez’oku makya kyokka poliisi teyasooka kussa kiragiro kino mu nkola nga bagamba nti balinda kufuna kiragiro kya Minisita w’ensonga z’omunda, Gen. Jeje Odongo.

Ekibinja kya Katikkiro kyayongera okubalemerako nga bwe waliwo ekiragiro kya Dr. Rugunda. Ku ssaawa nga 7:00 ez’emisana, Mayiga yasimbula okuva e Masaka okwolekera Kooki.

Mu kitoogo e Namujjuzi ng’ofuluma Masaka, poliisi yali esuddewo emisanvu kyokka obudde gye bwali bugenda ng’abantu batandise okwekuhhaanyizaawo.

E Kawenda ku nsalo ya Kooki ne Buddu ku kkubo erifubutaka e Sanje okutuuka e Mannya waali wateereddwaawo emisanvu egyalemesa abaserikale ba Kabaka abasooka okwetegereza embeera mu bitundu Katikkiro gyabeera agenda okukyala. Bano nabo baawalirizibwa okuddayo e Masaka ku wooteeri.

Ku lidda e Kiganda wakati wa Mityebiri ne Kasasa, ate emirala gyateekebwa e Lwanda awali ensalo ya Buddu ne Kooki byonna nga bigendereddwaamu okulemesa Katikkiro okutuuka e Kooki.


Bino bye bigambibwa okuba ebigambo Katikkiro Mayiga bye yayayogeredde mu lukiiko lwa Buganda ku Mmande ng’attottola ebyamutuukako mu lugendo lw’e Kooki. “Mwenna mumanyi enteekateeka eyo ey’Emmwaanyi Terimba.

Tulwanyisa bwavu nga tukubiriza abantu okutandikira kwebyo bye basobola. Mu Buganda omuntu wa bulijjo asobola kulima na kulunda. Waliyo abasobola okusuubula n’abakola mu ofiisi.

Naye okutwaliza awamu mu Buganda omulimu ogusookerwako gwa kulima n’okulunda. Tutuuse mu masaza mangi nga Kabaka agaba endokwa.

Tukola ne Coffee Development Authority era Minisita avunaanyizibwa ku by’obulimi, Hajji Amisi Kakomo ne Ssenkulu wa BUCADEF, Hajji Badru Sserwadda be tutambula nabo mu nteekateeka y’Emmwaanyi Terimba.

Tugenda tuzzaamu abantu naddala abavubuka amaanyi baleme kuggwaamu ssuubi bakole beeyimirizeewo.

Enteekateeka eno emanyiddwa bulungi. Wabula weewuunya omuntu ava ku biyamba abantu nadda mu buzannyo obwekyana ekito.

Nze sizannya mizannyo gya kyana kito ate simala gazannyirwako ntyo. E Kooki eriyo abantu abatayagala butebenkevu n’enkulaakulana.

Mu butuufu abantu abo tebalina bwagazi eri muntu waabulijjo. Kambabuulire lwaki njogera bwentyo:

‘‘Nze Katikkiro wa Buganda, Munnamateeka omutendeke ne nva mu ofiisi Kabaka gye yampa eva eno okutuuka eri ne hhenda okulya enfuufu.

Nandibadde nkima ki mu nfuufu? Nze saagalira ddala bintu bya nfuufu mu bulamu bwange, abammanyi bakimanyi naye hhenda ntya mu nfuufu nga nvudde mu ntebe eriko obwebonga n’empewo ensengejje ezinnyogoga hhende mu nsozi z’e Kooki nga njagala kukola mirimu Kabaka gye yampa oli n’agamba nti tojja kujja wano.

Taba mu mizannyo gya kito. Oyo abantu abaagala? Nze ndowooza bw’olaba akukaabirako nga naawe okaaba.

Ebyembi abantu bano abatayagala butebenkevu n’enkulaakulana era abatalina bwagazi eri abantu baabulijjo, balina banywanyi baabwe e Kampala ababadde bagezaako okubawagira mu nteekateeka zino ez’okututawaanya.

Munno bw’akugamba ekintu ekitayamba omugamba nti naye gundi kino. Ndowooza engeri gye sitera kuyombayomba balowooza nti ndi awo waakutiisibwatiisibwa.

Bwe tunnamugamba nti togenda nga naye abivaako ng’adduka. Nze Charles Peter Mayiga (eeeh..eeehh)-(Katikkiro naasekawo).

Nneebaza abaamagye, abapoliisi ne ISO abaluhhamizibwa abakulembeze abakitegeera nti ffe okugenda e Kooki kigasa Kooki, Buganda ne Uganda.

Yategeezezza nti, ‘‘e Kooki twayaniriziddwa mu ssanyu lingi ddala era n’emmwaanyi bangi bazirimye.

Njagala okwebaza Oweekitiibwa Gertrude Nakalanzi Ssebuggwawo omukwanaganya w’emirimu gya Kabaka e Kooki, olw’okumalirira okukola emirimu gya Kabaka era tujja kwongera tugikole.

Abamu bwe bawulira endagaano zino ze twakola ne gavumenti, balina okukimanya nti tekutulanga Kooki ku Buganda oba Buluuli oba Bugerere. Buganda ekyali wamu ne mu Ssemateeka mweri.

Ayagala okukutula mu Buganda yeesibe enkoba ssatu si lumu, si lumu si bbiri wabula ssatu.


Sikukuuma bulamu bwoka naye nokukuuma ebintu byabwe ebyobugagga, embeera zobudde, obujjanjabi bwokulwala nokuzaalibwa, okukuuma ettaka lya batuuze era nebirala bingi nyo ddala ebiwa bananyini nsi okwenyumiririza mu nsi yabwe nokujagala era nokujagaliza abaana nabazzukulu!


Wano ensonga za Buganda banamatteeka webazifulidde ezokusajiramu nga ebya baana abato so si ebyabantu abakulu abalina obuvunanyizibwa eri okukuuma obulamu bwa bantu ba Tonda.


Kibi nti buli ensi Buganda bwekola endagaano nabantu abagala ensi ya Buganda, bigenda okuggwa nga Ssabasajja mukwate, Katikkiro adduse nga nendagano ziyuziddwa nezitekebwa mu kasero akasulibwamu ebisasiro.
