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.

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.”

KAMPALA, UGANDA.

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.

Kabaka Ronald Mutebi on Wednesday, 25th May 2016,  launched a book about the struggles of his late father and former Buganda king, Edward Muteesa II, touching on Uganda’s history before and after independence.

The book titled The Brave King, revisits the stories of Muteesa’s exiling, first between 1953 and 1955, and again from 1966 to 1969 when he died in London. The author, Mr Patrick Makumbi, drew from the documents preserved by his father, 99-year-old Thomas Makumbi, who was an official at Mengo, Buganda’s power capital.

“I was very happy to write the preface to this book,” Kabaka Mutebi said, adding: “It will help the readers understand what Kabaka Muteesa went through in those days.”

When Mutesa was exiled in 1953, the older Makumbi, the father of the author, led a team of six Buganda officials to negotiate with the British about the king’s return to Buganda, which was secured in 1955. The other members of the team were Mr Apollo Kironde, Mr Matayo Mugwanya, Mr Amos Sempa, Mr Eridadi Mulira and Mr Ernest Kalibbala.

Kabaka Mutebi, while officiating at the function, called on more people to document what they saw during those days, saying “it is a good thing” that some of those who witnessed or participated in the events are still alive. Muteesa himself wrote about the period in question in his autobiography, The Desecration of my Kingdom, and Kabaka Mutebi’s endorsement of Mr Makumbi’s new book will be seen as an extension of the kingdom’s bid to manage the narrative.

Mr Apollo Makubuya, Buganda’s third deputy Katikkiro, at the launch held at Bulange-Mengo said there have been attempts to misrepresent history by “those who do not like us”.

Accusations and counter accusations of betrayal between Buganda Kingdom and Obote are rooted in a rather happy start, when Buganda’s party Kabaka Yekka (KY) teamed up with Obote’s Uganda People’s Congress to defeat the Democratic Party and form government at independence in 1962.

But the two centres of power soon quarrelled violently and were involved in what many have regarded as a critical turning point in Uganda’s history. The army, on Obote’s orders, stormed Muteesa’s palace on May 24, 1966, killing multitudes and forcing the king-president into exile.

Mr Makubuya said his grandfather was among those killed during the attack, an occasion the kingdom commemorates yearly on May 24. He said in addition to explaining how Buganda and Muteesa suffered during that period, Mr Makumbi’s book will clarify a number of other issues, including how colonialism thwarted Buganda’s development efforts.

He said Buganda stiffly resisted colonialism and the demands of colonial governor Andrew Cohen in particular, to the extent of winning a court case in London against the exiling of Muteesa. In all its efforts, Mr Makubuya said, Buganda was consistently seeking autonomy, and that the kingdom can “never” lose sight of this objective.

Mr Makumbi, the author, said his father could not attend the launch due to old age.

The publication of the book was financed by Dr Colin Sentongo, who said at the launch that KY, which ceased to exist in the 1960s, is the only political party he has ever belonged to.

The fathers of Mr Makumbi and Dr Sentongo met with Muteesa as students at Kings College Budo, from where, Mr Sentongo said, the three men forged a life-long friendship. It is probably much for this reason that Kabaka Mutebi warmed up to Mr Sentongo and Mr Makumbi at the launch.

On the 56th-year-old birthday of Uganda, this country is still battling with  self-rule and Presidential cash handouts:

Dr Milton Obote swears in as president at Kol

By Monitor team

Kampala- Fifty-six years ago, today, Uganda’s first executive prime minister Milton Obote set four-fold priorities for an independent Uganda: political stability, safeguarding the economy, improving social services and building an efficient civil service.

“There is a place in Uganda for all who have her interests at heart, whatever their tribe, race or creed. Let all of us, who wish to see Uganda prosper, join together in resolving to build a great and united nation,” he said while receiving the instruments of power from departing British colonialists.

That was at Kololo ceremonial grounds in Kampala on the night of October 9, 1962. 
This morning, and about 180 kilometres away in Kyotera District, President Museveni will, for the 33rd time, ascend the rostrum to speak to Ugandans as they observe the 56th anniversary of independence.

If the country had been an average Ugandan citizen, it would have risen and fallen through the undulations of childhood and adolescence, made plentiful mistakes, endured the goads of formal education, scaled the travails of job search and plunged in the comfort of its perks while closing in on retirement at 60 years.

Perhaps more importantly, it would be seven years shy of dying if the Uganda Bureau of Statistics-calculated life expectancy of 63 years were to apply.

So, what is the report card on feats and failures of 56-year-old Uganda ensnared in the battle between autonomy and dependence? 

Wealth and debt
The World Bank in a 1993 report described Uganda’s economy at independence as one of the most promising in sub-Saharan Africa. 
The country was self-sufficient in food, export of coffee, cotton and cocoa brought in plentiful foreign exchange, a vibrant local manufacturing sector supplied basic inputs and consumer goods. Copper and cobalt exports added to the riches, providing a positive balance of trade.

Fiscal and monetary management was sound, and the domestic savings rate averaged about 15 per cent of the about $6m (about Shs21.6b) Gross Domestic Product.

The GDP had ballooned to $25.89b in 2017, according to World Bank. However, Oxfam has warned that widespread income inequality and concentration of riches in the hands of politically well-connected individuals places the country on a self-destruct path.

Worse, the debt has piled to $10b (Shs41 trillion), according to the latest Finance ministry figures, even after Uganda benefitted debt relief in four cycles between 1998 and 2005.

Debt undermines sovereignity, according to Uganda Debt Network, and diminishes the power and influence of independent states against creditors besides chippings away future wealth.

Balance of payment position
One measure of a country’s actual wealth is a comparison of its earnings from exports and expenditure on imports. An independent Uganda depends more than it did 56 years ago on foreign manufactured goods.

These include basics such as needles and China-made tooth picks to grand machinery, electronics, automobiles and wines and spirits. 
As a result, the country’s Balance of Payments position is in the red; with $348.5m trade deficit of as of August 2018. 

Education
The 7-6-3 primary, secondary and university education model in force is a colonial inheritance. Little has changed in the curriculum, even when the needs of an independent Uganda have rapidly evolved.

Teaching is rarely aligned to generate knowledge and skills critical to place Uganda on a pedestal to achieve development goals enunciated in national medium and long-term blueprints.

Increased enrollment in primary schools from a few thousands to millions has been undercut by quality deficits where passage through classes is, under the universal education programme, more a ritual than scholarly exercise.

Ugandans, who can afford or are gifted to snap up foreign government-offered scholarships, feel more fulfilled to study in the West, including in Britain.

A diminished education sector is yielding mass educated and unemployable youth.

Geo-political card play
In theory, independence meant Uganda would make all key decisions. In practice, it never did. The immediate post-independence governments battled with the allures of capitalism and communism, prompting President Milton Obote’s 1969 move to the Left, a marginal shift to socialism, policy proclamation.

President Museveni, an intellectual socialist, on capturing power embraced a free-market economy, including the Bretton Woods institutions-dictated 1980s Structural Adjustment Programmes. This made him a darling to the West that viewed him favourably as a reformist leader.

A closer scrutiny injured the economic and diplomatic relations, prompting Mr Museveni to turn to China, which funds most of Uganda’s big-ticket infrastructure road and energy projects costing billions of dollars, for economic and political benefaction. 

Dependence versus autonomy
From towering external debt burden to cash hand-outs by the President, both Uganda and its citizens suffer one ignominy: elusive self-reliance. 
It is one country where a President can carry money in a sack or car boot to hand out to eager recipients mostly identifying themselves as regime lackeys or credit and saving schemes, many founded overnight to tap into a presidential largesse.

That tokenism extends to the administrative reconfiguration. Whereas Uganda had 16 districts at independence, it has today been balkanised into 125 districts, with more lined up for operationalisation at the start of subsequent financial years.

This in theory is a success score of decentralisation; taking services closer to the people.

However, insufficient local revenue has meant the districts rely almost entirely on the central government to finance development projects and recurrent expenditure, turning them into captive political constituencies with additional dividends of gerrymandering.

BLACK COLONISERS

Independence did not significantly re-order the power relations between the leaders and the led. 
The presidency remained imperial under the constitution. Its trappings armed the office holder to patronise both Parliament and Judiciary, the other two arms of government created in law to exercise checks and balances. 
From perks to power, the only visible difference between a colonised and independent Uganda, according to critics, is that black citizens substituted the British.

In Uganda, a District meeting was disrupted and later terminated, after an opposition councillor referred to the President of Uganda as a 'Bosco'

September 27, 2018

Written by URN

NRM councillors stormed out of the meeting

A council meeting at Wakiso district was this evening turned chaotic after an opposition councillor referred to President Museveni as 'Bosco' as she was debating.

 

Zamu Kyeyune, the Nabweru Division representative, who had risen to inquire about the functionality of toilet facilities at the district headquarters, ended up diverting from the topic under discussion.

She asked why the Buganda king (Kabaka) Ronald Muwenda Mutebi's portrait in the council chambers was so faded and old compared to that of the president.

 

"Mr speaker let me take this opportunity to ask the Works committee chairperson why the Kabaka's portrait hanged in this chamber is more faint than that of Bosco [Museveni]?" she said. 

'Bosco Katala' is a derogatory name that many Ugandans on social media adopted in reference to President Museveni following the Arua arrests which saw a number of legislators and their supporters detained and later charged with treason.  

The name was lifted from an advert promoting the use of cashless transactions by telecommunication giant, MTN.

 
The advert tells the story of village man who came to the city and rides his bicycle through metal detectors, escalators and supermarket aisles.
 
When he enters the shopping mall, Bosco is shown how to pay using mobile money much to his amazement.
 
Parody videos of the advert have been circulating on social media showing President Museveni riding a bicycle at his demonstration farms and carrying cash handouts in sacks. 

 

Kyeyune's reference, however, sent the meeting into disarray as the ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) councillors started fighting - throwing plastic chairs at the councillor.  

The NRM councillors pleaded with the speaker to order Kyeyune to withdraw the 'Bosco' reference or suspend her from the council. However, the speaker insisted that there was no cause of alarm ordering the Works committee chairperson to proceed with the presentation.

The speakers' decision angered NRM members who later walked out of the meeting in protest. Although the speaker had ruled that the meeting continues, the NRM councillors caused chaos outside the chamber, forcing the meeting to end prematurely. 

Busi sub-county councillor Hood Kaweesa says they could not tolerate such disrespect to the person of the president by their colleague.

 
Hajji Abdu Kaggwa, another council, says that nicknaming and calling the president with whatever names is intended to marginalize NRM representatives to the district council.
 
"That 'young girl' referred to our president as Bosco. Whether you don’t believe in him, he’s still the president. Moreover she did it from an official council meeting. She said Bosco nga anyilira (Bosco is looking awesome). How could she? You just can’t belittle the president like that. Let her go and belittle her husband."

Tom Muwonge the Kasangati town council representative said he does not know why their NRM colleagues had to storm out of the council over a mere nickname.
 
"The NRM councillors are just amazing. Who is Bosco? It seems these councillors have nothing to discuss. She simply said the Kabaka's portrait looks faded just as she’d seen one at Bosco’s house. Let these councillors go home since they have nothing to discuss but the electorate will vote them out." Muwonge said. 
 
In an interview later, Kyeyune denied calling the president 'Bosco', saying that the accusation was intended to tarnish her image.
 
"I simply asked the Works committee to replace the Kabaka’s picture because it's faded. I did not refer to anybody as ‘Bosco’. They know where they got it from and they have their unknown reasons for attributing it to me." she said. 
 
Since the beginning of this financial year 2018/2019, Wakiso district has held two council sittings which have both ended in chaos as a result of disagreements between the NRM and opposition councillors.

Nb

It should help everybody if these photos are established online so that one can make out ones own opinion. One hopes the Ganda people in Wakiso when they see the two pictures will make their own decision on this Administration hi-cup! No need to shed tears Honourable NRM Civilized Councillors. Do not bring in the Kiboko crime preventers for heavens sake!

 

 

 

 

 

In Uganda, the NRM Majority Parliament is fed up with the threats to Mps lives as it goes about with its daily legislative assembly: 

Killings: MPs press panic button:

As the saying goes, you dig a hole you end up falling in it:

By Solomon Arinaitwe

With the country locked in the throes of a “security crisis” marked by a spate of high-profile assassinations, MPs are living on the edge with some saying they are receiving death threats while others say they have been trailed by suspected assailants.

Over the past one month, at least three MPs have come out in Parliament to say their lives are under threat, saying they were being trailed by motorcycle riding strangers.

A number of MPs, sources say, have secretly registered fears over their lives with the authorities at Parliament.

Away from Parliament, a number of Opposition politicians say their lives are in danger and they are taking measures to try and elude the people they think are hunting them.

What is missing in the discussion about assassinations and feared assassinations, however, is the motive of the killers.

President Museveni and security bosses have spoken about the recent killings on many occasions, but they hardly comment on why Ugandans are being killed, driving up fear among many.

One puzzling thing about the killings is the victims are drawn from a wide spectrum, including an ardent supporter of the establishment (former Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga), a critic of the establishment (former policeman Muhammad Kirumira), a prosecutor (Joan Kagezi), Muslim clerics, and former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi.

In the recent past, the victims of the killings first claimed their lives were in danger and they indeed got killed in the end.

This was true with Kirumira, Abiriga and Kaweesi, and before them, Muslim clerics.

In light of this trend, the Parliamentary Commission is not taking the claims lightly, and it on Monday met over MPs’ security fears and resolved to write to President Museveni asking him to order intelligence organs to enquire into case-by-case threats faced by MPs and compile a report to guide the next course of action.

An MP who attended the meeting said the Parliament Commission will give details of the threats faced by individual MPs to President Museveni and ask him to direct intelligence services to investigate the specific threats.

The Parliamentary Commission has also advised MPs who are facing security threats not to divulge vital details about the nature of threats they face in order not to give potential assassins clues and also throw investigations off-balance.

The commission also turned down a proposal by Mr Museveni for each of the over 400 MPs to be given an armoured vehicle with army sharpshooters on grounds that such a security venture is not economically viable.

When Mr Museveni announced the security measures for MPs in July, this newspaper interviewed car manufacturers who revealed that a 2017/18 model bullet-proof Land Cruiser pick-up costs about $520,000 (about Shs1.9b) while a 2017/18 model bullet-proof Hilux pick-up costs about $166,000 (Shs630m). Based on such estimates, to procure bullet-proof cars for the 456 MPs at Shs1.9b each, government would pay out Shs866b, which dwarfs the less than Shs600b that the police force is allocated per year. By the same estimates, a 2017/18 bullet-proof Hilux model at Shs630m would cost government Shs287b.

MP Arinaitwe Rwakajara, a commissioner, who attended the Monday Parliament Commission meeting, confirmed that each individual threat will be handled on its own merits based on a report to the President.

“There are [MPs] that have been receiving messages. Some are getting information that they are blacklisted and will be finished. But of course with the general security situation, everyone is fearing for life,” he said.

Speaker Rebecca Kadaga told MPs that the Parliament Commission convened over growing security fears but said she would not divulge details of the resolutions reached.

“We [Parliamentary Commission] agreed that those MPs who feel endangered shall ask government to give them special attention depending on the degree of concern to their security,” Ms Kadaga to MPs.

The threats

MPs started ringing alarm bells that they were fearful for the lives during the run-up to the debate and passing of the controversial Constitution Amendment Bill that removed presidential age limit from the Constitution last year.

As tempers flared over the removal of presidential age limits late last year, some MPs who were very outspoken in favour of removing age limits ran to President Museveni who in turn provided them with guards from the Special Forces Command (SFC).

Some of the MPs that were provided with SFC guards are Raphael Magyezi (Igara West), Jacob Oboth-Oboth (West Budama South), Grace Balyeku (Jinja Municipality West), Simeo Nsubuga (Kassanda South) and Peter Ogwang (Usuk County).

With MPs already living on the edge, the killing of Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga on June 8 further stoked the fears. President Museveni directed the Finance ministry to immediately buy escort vehicles for all the 456 MPs while the army would provide them with “sharp shooters” to protect them from what he called “terrorists.”

This week, Busongora North MP William Nzoghu and Buhweju County MP Francis Mwijukye talked of security threats to their lives. Mbale Woman MP Connie Nakayenze expressed similar fears for her life last week. 
MP Nzoghu reported to MPs that he has noticed suspicious people trailing him up to his home.

“I noticed suspicious persons trailing me. Even at my home, we are seeing suspicious people around my perimeter wall. My life is in danger. I want the government to assure me whether I am safe. This country is slipping into a situation where we are not sure of what is happening,” Mr Nzoghu said.

Mr Mwijukye gave details on how he was trailed from a supermarket in Bukoto, a suburb near the city centre to Gayaza in Wakiso, a stretch that is around 15kms.

“When I left Parliament, I went to UMI (Uganda Management Institute) where I am studying and when I left UMI, I went and stopped in Bukoto, bought things in the supermarket and when I was going home, I saw people following me. I reached Kyanja and I asked the driver to rotate around the roundabout about three times. We sped off towards Gayaza road,” Mr Mwijukye said.

How the constitution of Uganda is changed anyhow to suit various political interests:

How the majority NRM Members of Parliament were duped a second time on changing the Constitution of Uganda:

6 August, 2018

Written by Baker Batte Lule

From start to the closing arguments, it was clear government was determined to lean on the five Constitutional court justices to uphold the lifting of the presidential age limits and strike down any other lesser provision deemed unconstitutional from the Raphael Magyezi promoted Constitutional Amendment Act No 1 of 2018.

In his closing prayer in Mbale, deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana dropped his strongest signal when he beseeched the justices thus; “In the unlikely event that court finds that some parts of the process contravene the constitution it should apply the principle of severance and save the lawful bits and nullify the unconstitutional provisions.”

That veiled prayer brought into public view glaring divisions between the ruling party MPs and the government side. From the word go, MPs had been warned on the floor of parliament that a term extension was unconstitutional.

And days after the ruling, senior NRM officials one-by-one have begun to put some distance between government and ruling party MPs who they claim have themselves to blame after the Constitutional court on Thursday, July 26, declared the extension of their tenure of parliament and local councils unconstitutional.

In the dodgy Uganda Parliament, the money minded Members of Parliament debate the age limit bill back in December 2017

In December 2017, the MPs unilaterally voted to stretch the House term from five to seven years. The term extension, many MPs believed, was a tradeoff for lifting the presidential age limits, the only remaining hurdle that stood in the way of President Museveni’s re-election in 2021 after clocking the mandatory 75 year upper cap for a presidential candidate.

The bill’s passage was a divisive process marred by blatant bribery, arm-twisting, blackmail and regrettable violence. The term extension was made against the counsel of President Museveni, government spokesman Ofwono Opondo said over the weekend.

The executive director of the government media centre observed that smuggling the proposal into the bill to scrap age limits despite Museveni’s advice clears him of any subsequent failing.

“The findings of court have absolved the president. What was processed from the word go in the private member’s bill to cabinet; to the caucus of NRM in parliament, was the original Magyezi bill which was attempting to address the directive of the Supreme Court in the Amama Mbabazi election petition and then Raphael Magyezi’s own intuition of lifting the age limit for elective leadership in the country,” Opondo said.

For those MPs now feeling exposed by the court ruling, Opondo reminded them that during debate, extending tenure of elective office was never part of the conversation.

“The president actually advised the people who were mooting the extension of parliament to drop the proposal in the caucus. However, when they went beyond the caucus, where the president doesn’t sit, on the final day of the consideration; the second and third reading of the bill, they smuggled it back,” Opondo said.

On Thursday, July 26, Deputy Chief Justice Alphonse Chigamoi Owiny-Dollo, president of the Constitutional Court, led a four-to-one majority decision in the petition challenging Constitutional Amendment Act No 1 of 2018.

The law enacted in December last year had amended Article 102(b) of the Constitution under which the 35-75 year presidential age limits had been provided. With the ruling, Museveni who will be 76 at the next election can now run for office for life.

Other judges on the panel were Remmy Kasule, Kenneth Kakuru, Elizabeth Musoke and Cheborion Barishaki. Kakuru was the only dissenting judge, determining that the entire law was null and void given the illegalities fraught in its enactment.

His colleagues, however, only agreed with him in striking down the term extension for MPs and local governments. They also threw out the clause which had reintroduced the two presidential term limits originally struck out of the Constitution in 2005, ostensibly to allow Museveni run for a third term.

The 2005 term limit amendment occurred in an environment just as chaotic and was also widely unpopular. But this did not stop MPs from the ruling National Resistance Movement party from receiving Shs 5 million in exchange for their vote.

Seven year extension

When the private member’s bill tabled by Igara West MP Raphael Magyezi was read for the first time in September last year, it only included bits relating to the qualifications of a presidential candidate.

Other proposals related to change in days in which the Electoral Commission could organise fresh presidential elections following a successful petition challenging a result and period for filing and deciding in the Supreme Court. 

As the government washes its hands of the matter, memories return of how West Budama North MP, Jacob Oboth Oboth’s Legal and Parliamentary Affairs committee smuggled term extension and term limits into their controversial recommendations.

The committee’s majority membership comprising NRM supporters issued an ultimatum; they would not pass amendment of Article 102(b) unless their interests were incorporated. They recongnised then that going against the wishes of the people in lifting age limits would see them punished in 2021, hence the extension was insurance.

Museveni had warned that the proposal was unconstitutional. But even his own deputy Prime Minister Moses Ali reportedly brushed him off in one meeting, saying that Ugandans had elected Museveni on the understanding that this was his last term.

But it would now seem that his reluctant acceptance was doubled-edged. In the euphoria which followed what some saw as a reluctant acceptance by Museveni, the MPs got carried away and passed the sections on term extension and term limits in flagrant disregard to procedures laid out in the constitution and other laws. This was pointed out by the Constitutional court in striking them down.

Also, speaking to CBS radio on Monday last week, Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister, Maj. Gen. (rtd) Kahinda Otafiire has said that extending the tenure was never agreed upon in cabinet where he sits. He said MPs introduced it and the government had no way of stopping them.

Enter Kadaga

There were other warning signs. When Oboth Oboth presented his committee report speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga cautioned against introducing extraneous matters foreign to the so-called Magyezi Bill.

She wanted to know how such proposals which were not part of the original Bill got to be considered by the committee. After she went on the record, she still allowed debate and adoption of the proposals.

However, in the certificate of compliance accompanying the bill she sent to the president for assent, Kadaga made no mention of all the provisions that were foreign to the original Magyezi bill. This omission became one of the key grounds on which the court stood in scrapping tenure extension and term limits’ reinstatement.

Was Kadaga acting knowingly? Was she under instructions of someone?  These questions might never be answered considering that the court declined to summon her for cross examination.

So, why did the president not point out these omissions, or those elements he was unhappy about like he always does before assenting to the bill?

Opondo provides part of the answer and probably confirms that Museveni possibly noticed the Kadaga omissions.

“Looking at the controversy and acrimony that had surrounded the introduction and processing of that bill, and also the popularity of the term extension among MPs, the president chose not to take it back to parliament because that would be an effort in futility,” he said.

“Thank God that somebody went to court and a judgement against it was made,” Opondo said.

However, in the ensuing grumbling by regime MPs following last month’s verdict, Museveni released statement on Monday, July 30.

“With the five years, a lot of time is spent on electioneering and less time on development; the first two years settling in, the third year some work in the constituency and then by the fourth year electioneering again,” Museveni wrote in a message in which he criticized the judges for concentrating on form rather than substance. 

What the judges said

All the five judges held that parliament acted with greed. In great length, they described the reasons given in parliament [the same Museveni is giving] for the two year extension, such as the need to afford MPs time to acclimatise.

They also, however, pointed out that the law sets a high academic qualification for one to be MP, suggesting that house members are expected to find their feet quickly and effortlessly.

“It is quite apparent therefrom that peace and development of Uganda, or any of the other permissible justifications for amending the Constitution, did not feature at all in Parliament’s consideration of the motion for the amendment of the provision regarding the tenure of parliament. The purported reasons given for the extension were evidently personal to parliament; which was most unfortunately self–serving,” Owinyi-Dollo’s 201 page judgement reads.

Kakuru put it even more bluntly when he observed that parliament has no power to amend, alter or in any way abridge or remove some provisions of the constitution, as doing so would amount to its abrogation.

“The people made it clear that; parliament must not be permitted to usurp the sovereignty of the people by extending its term of office. It was also unanimously expressed that parliament should have a term of five years, with many saying it should not be possible to extend the term under any circumstances. To hold otherwise, would create an absurdity,” Kakuru ruled.

If left with power to amend any provision of the constitution, Kakuru observed, parliament would every five years or seven, extend its term without having to go for elections!

“Even worse, it could abolish elections and declare its current members to be members for life. Parliament could even abolish the Judiciary and vest judicial powers in itself. Once the principle is set that parliament has a right to amend any Article of the Constitution, simply by voting “yes” there would be no limit to their demands,” Kakuru said. 

Like Owiny-Dollo, Kakuru observed that the people did not elect MPs for them to go and learn parliamentary rules and procedures for two years like Mbarara municipality MP Michael Tusiime said while introducing the tenure-stretching amendment.

“The law provides for minimum qualification for Members of Parliament. Mr Tusiime appeared to suggest that Members of Parliament are either unknowledgeable or unqualified,” Kakuru added.

Judge Musoke said when MPs gave themselves two additional years without declaring their interests, they grossly violated the National Leadership Code of Conduct enshrined in Chapter 14 of the Constitution and Part III of the Leadership Code Act.

The above provisions prohibit leaders from having personal or conflict of interest in the execution of their official duties.

“It is clear from the available evidence that public interest was curtailed when a group of Members of Parliament by their conduct made it impossible for the debate process of the Bill to proceed peacefully,” Musoke said. 

Barishaki concluded that the impugned amendment sought to change the term of office of MPs and other leaders, an action too critical to be decided without the involvement of the very people.

Age limit

The crux of the consolidated petition was to challenge the validity of the lifting of presidential age limits. All other grounds were mainly geared towards finding the entire constitutional amendment bill unconstitutional and therefore null and void.

At a total 814 pages, the July 26 ruling is easily one of longest in Uganda’s history. However, despite its considerable length, not more than 28 pages were dedicated to the central issue of presidential age limits.

Writing in an Op-Ed piece published by The Observer on August 1, Makerere University law professor, Joe Oloka-Onyango, witheringly described it as being rich in length but hollow in substance.

“On the critical issue of the lifting of the age limit, the majority of the bench failed to appreciate two central features of the preamble to the Constitution and the democratic principles enshrined in the National Objectives and Directive Principles of State Policy. These are the history of political and constitutional instability which the Constitution is at pains to ensure is not repeated, and the democratic principles that are supposed to guide the State and its agencies,” Oloka-Onyango wrote.

“The issue of the age limit cannot be divorced from that of term limits which were a central feature of the 1995 Constitution when initially enacted. With term limits enshrined in the Constitution, it did not matter at what age one became president, or indeed when they left the Presidency, as there was a finite period within which one could hold the office.

This explains why the provision was not entrenched. With term limits removed, the only safe-guard becomes a limitation on the age at which one can cease to be president, short of which we are left with a president-for-life. It is strange that the court could declare itself alive to the dangers of life parliamentarians and at the same time be silent about the very real danger of life presidency.” 

Some of the petitioners like Kira Municipality MP Ibrahim Ssemuujju Nganda, Hassan Male Mabirizi Kiwanuka, Francis Gimara of the Uganda Law Society and others have already expressed their dissatisfaction with the ruling.

They seem inclined to appeal the matter in the Supreme court.

The Theft of public resources is breaking up Uganda, the Kabaka of Buganda has warned the Uganda Central Government lead by President Museveni for 32 years:

 

Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II

BUGANDA, UGANDA,KAMPALA: Kabaka Ronald Mutebi II used the silver jubilee anniversary of his coronation to call for a halt to widespread greed and corruption that he said have placed Uganda on a path of self-destruction.

“Previously, parents taught children how to avoid greed and indeed children grew into good-mannered citizens. But during this era, there is a lot of greed among people and this is why we witness a lot of corruption,” the Kabaka said.
Uganda, he noted, will continue to “deteriorate if prevailing levels of corruption remain unchecked”.

In a more cryptic message, which echoed nationwide distress over official graft, the king of Uganda’s most populous region, said: “You cannot fetch water in a basket and deliver it home. If greed is not decisively handled, our nation will not develop yet our people are determined to work for national development.”
The Kabaka spoke amid deafening ululations by subjects who trooped in from the kingdom’s 52 clans and thronged Mengo palace, the venue of the fête outside the city centre.

Traditional affair
Majority wore bark cloth and the traditional kanzu and gomesi outfits, reinforcing the event’s cultural blend.
Loyalists carried the king shoulder-high to the rostrum and he waved to the multitudes from side to side while grinning.
In the royal tent was a special guest; the Asantehene of Ghana’s Ashanti Empire, Otumfour Nana Osei Tutu II.
He had arrived two days earlier, with his own dancing troupe, and two of the female Ghanaian entertainers besotted the crowds by dancing beautifully to the approval of the royals and onlookers.

Kabaka Mutebi, in his speech, adopted a more universal message, speaking broadly on subjects from inequality to crime, government’s missteps in revival of cooperatives and the gloom of rising HIV infections, as well as haemorrhaging of public resources.
“I appeal to leaders and parents to caution our youth to be wary of greed. I appeal to whoever is responsible for money to deliver it to intended destinations so that people can receive services to develop our nation so that people are happy in their nation [instead of] looking for greener pastures,” he said.

It was a message that echoed beyond the kingdom.
Massive corruption, the king added, has led to a broken healthcare system, education, politics, economy and a retarded national growth.
He decried the counterproductive re-engineering of Uganda, marked by islands of the super-rich living in a sea of poverty-stricken people.
“This is not good at all”, he stressed, linking the growing crime in the country in part to this inequality.
Mr Edward Ssekandi, the Vice President, represented the central government at the celebrations attended by a horde of ministers, Members of Parliament, cultural and religious leaders, and diplomats.

The Kabaka decried the high unemployment rate among Uganda’s youth, many of them university graduates.
“Farmers’ cooperative unions enriched ordinary people, who earned from cotton and coffee sales to support families and educate their own,” he said, crediting the foresightedness of our grandfathers who initiated the cooperatives to spur economic growth.
“These unions died in wars and, unfortunately, many have not been revived. Cooperatives come from people and not the government and the government is simply a regulator,” he said.

The Kabaka added: “I implore our people to do all [that] is possible like our grandparents did; to revive cooperative unions so that we work together and mobilise money [so that] our children will be employed.”
He spoke approvingly of Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga, whose rollercoaster work includes public fundraising to finance reconstruction of the gutted Kasubi royal tombs and building of a perimeter wall fence there, alongside popularisation of coffee growing in the kingdom.

Mayiga took in the praise gaily, having in his speech earlier exalted the Kabaka for being the glue between the kingdom and its subjects by caring for all, over the last 25 years.
“Despite the challenges,” Katikkiro Mayiga said yesterday, “Kabaka has united the people of Buganda and a number of development programmes have been witnessed over the past 25 years.”
The crowd roared.

Message to Buganda
He asked the Baganda to implement the Kabaka’s directives, endure and keep united so that the kingdom can regain its former glory.
“The kingdom defines our lives. Since Kabaka’s enthronement, we have witnessed a lot in education, health and poverty eradication,” Mr Mayiga said.

In his speech at the function, that delayed by two hours, the Kabaka warned that official statistics indicate that HIV infection is again rising after years of decline.
The Kabaka, who is a UNAIDS goodwill ambassador, urged people to go and test for HIV so that they can start medication early to live longer.

In Uganda, the Director of Public Prosecution has reduced his long charge list because many of his prisoners have not as yet been arrested:

Some of those arrested have been in detention for over 18 months on investigation over treason charges.

July 20, 2018

Written by URN

 

Mr Jamil Mukulu

The director of public prosecutions (DPP) has amended the charge sheet of former Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebel leader Jamil Mukulu.

According to the amended charge sheet, criminal proceedings against three of Mukulu's initial co-accused persons have been dropped while two suspects added onto the charge sheet.

The amended charge sheet presented before High court judge Eva Luswata today, Friday dated June 27 indicates proceedings against Ugandan Australian based cardiologist Dr Aggrey  Kiyingi, Muzafar Kaule and Sheikh Swaliden  Baligeya have been temporarily discontinued pending their arrest.

Those added on the charge sheet are Joseph Masereka and Adam Dean Muhooza, bringing the number of suspects to 38.

Mukulu and 37 others are awaiting trial before the International Crimes Division of the High court on charges of terrorism, murder, crimes against humanity, aiding and abetting terrorism, attempted murder, aggravated robbery among others. 

They are also linked to the murder of 80 students of Kichwamba Technical Institute in 1998, the killings of Muslim clerics, Muzamir Babale and Abdul Karim Tenywa, two police officers who were shot dead at Bugiri Police Station in Busoga in 2015. 

During the pre-trial session, the DPP failed to disclose the evidence and exhibits he will use against Mukulu and his co-accused.

John Baptist Asiimwe, the assistant director of public prosecution informed court that he failed to meet the time frame given by court to disclose evidence due to logistical challenges. He asked for two weeks to enable him serve Mukulu's lawyers with evidence and to also convene a meetings for parties to view both documentary and physical exhibits.

Justice Luswata adjourned the hearing to August 15, 2018 with orders that the DPP meets his deadlines. Outside court, Mukulu attacked the media for tarnishing his name by reporting false stories.

He also shouted at some of the Muslims who were outside court arguing that he used to help them before he was arrested, but have now abandoned him.

Nb

It is very clear to all  that want to capture power as this current government of Uganda did, that they will be taken to courts of law. If these culprits have a conscience as law abiding citizens of Uganda that have not committed any offence, well then they should proceed with a Hunger Strike. It is wrong to accept to be on remand for over 3 to 6 months for no offence and just sit on the prison bench willingly and  stuff yourself with prison food.

 

 

 

 

 

In Uganda, many Diplomats of various countries have expressed concern over a delayed age limit petition ruling by the courts of law:

June 26, 2018

Written by URN

Ambassadors accredited to Uganda have questioned the delayed delivery of a judgment on the consolidated petition challenging the amendment of the Constitution to remove the presidential age limits.

The ambassadors were today meeting the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga to discuss trends on Uganda's democracy and good governance. This is the second ambassadors' meeting with Kadaga following an earlier meeting in December 2016. 

The delegation had the Germany ambassador Dr Albrecht Conze, the United States ambassador Deborah Malac, France ambassador Stéphanie Rivoal, Peter West, the British high commissioner, Swedish ambassador Per Lindgarde, Japanese ambassador Kazuaki Kameda, Norwegian ambassador Susan Eckey, and the Italian ambassador Domenico Fornara, among others. 
 
Speaker Rebecca Kadaga meeting the foreign diplomats at parliament today
Similar to a protest letter written last week by city lawyer James Byamukama to the chief justice Bart Katureebe, the ambassadors demanded for the immediate delivery of the judgment on the consolidated 'age limit' petition.

Germany ambassador Dr Albrecht Conze observed that two months since the hearing of the matter at the Mbale High court was concluded, the judgment should have been delivered by now. 
 
"It is now, I think more than two months, it was on the 19th of April, the court in Mbale closed its proceedings. It’s now more than two months that the Constitutional court concluded the grand hearing of five petitions challenging the constitutionality of the process that had led to the amendment of the Constitution in late 2017." he said. 
 
"The petition of Uganda Law Society focused on the perceived contravention of the Constitution as different times for different elections were at stake and on the violation of the integrity of parliament regarding to the entrance of presidential guards in the House of parliament in the course of the deliberations. Uganda Law Society argued that the amendment of the Constitutional Act should be declared void. The MPs suspended by you, madam speaker during deliberations also filed legal petitions."
 
Conze cited Article 137(7) of Rule 10 of the constitutional petitions & references rules, which require judgment on constitutional petitions to be delivered in 60 working days.
 
"The 60 working days timeframe that is provided for by the Uganda code of judicial conduct has a timeframe within which the court to deliver its ruling has just been exceeded. Now, there is a provision in the law that says; if there’s good reason not to abide by the timeframe, then it can be exceeded. This is a very interesting opening subject for our deliberations today, and we would be happy to have your comment on the current state of affairs, and also what you would think the timeframe could now be. Of course, it’s up to the courts, the courts are independent but am sure you have an interesting statement to make," Conze added. 

The Constitution Amendment Bill No.2 of 2017 emanated from a private member's bill tabled by Igara West MP, Raphael Magyezi. Its enactment removed the upper age cap of 75 years and the lower age cap of 35 years for any citizen to contest for the highest office in the land.
 
It also extended the term of office parliament, and Local Governments from five to seven years and reintroduced presidential term limits that had been removed in 2005. But the amendments were challenged by seven petitioners, whose petitions were consolidated at the time of the hearing. They include Male Kiwanuka Mabiriizi, Winnie Kiiza, the leader of opposition in parliament, Uganda Law Society, opposition chief whip Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, and four other legislators.
 
The petitioners demanded that the Constitutional court overturns the controversial amendment on the argument that it was passed out of a violation of the Constitution, the supreme law of the land. 
 
The petitioners questioned an allocation of Shs 13 billion which was shared among members of parliament to conduct consultations on the bill.  Parliamentary guidelines stipulate that a private members bill can only be accepted if it does not have any financial implication on the consolidated fund.
 
They added that the president acted out of the law when he assented to the bill in absence of certificates of compliance from parliament. Reacting to a concern by the ambassadors on the delayed decision on the matter, speaker Kadaga said that it was not proper for her to comment on the matter currently before the judiciary.
 
Kadaga's response prompted further inquiry by Swedish Ambassador Per Lindgarde who tasked her to clarify on the atmosphere under which parliament passed the 'age limit' bill.
 
"Well, the proceedings are before the judiciary, so I can’t comment on their speed or lack thereof. I cannot anticipate what they are going to say. So for me,  I did my work and that’s finished. So if the court says something else, we wait for that. On the suspension, I don’t think you need to make serious issues about suspension - all of you [ambassadors] have parliaments and I do know that members get suspended. So no one should really make an issue about suspension. It is the right of the speaker to keep discipline in the house," said Kadaga. 
 
Ambassador Lindgarde put Kadaga on the spot to explain the invasion of parliament by the presidential guards, Special Forces Command (SFC) to evict members of parliament suspended by her during the age limit debate. Kadaga said, she shouldn't be the one made to explain the invasion in parliament as invasions have happened before at other institutions including court. However, she said, she has effected changes to ensure that the December 2017 raid on parliament does not re-occur. 
 
"I believe, you recall that the High court was invaded some years back. I don’t think you can ask the chief justice to explain what happened. If you’re invaded, you’re invaded. But what I have done here; is to eject any forces that are not civilian police. Those who used to hang around here, I also sent them away, so they are no longer here. I also closed access from the Office of the President into parliament. So what we have here is the Uganda Police Force under the parliamentary police. That is all I can say...." she said.

Recently, the judiciary senior communications officer Solomon Muyita said that the judges handling the judgment on the consolidated 'age limit' petition are currently working on the final judgment and that the judgment will be delivered in not so long a period from now.
 
Muyita, however, said that the constitution does not necessarily give timelines for judgment on a constitutional petition to be delivered.

Kampala. The government is to start paying civil servants according to the number of days worked rather than a guaranteed monthly salary, a senior official said yesterday.

Prof Ezra Suruma, the head of the Delivery Unit in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), said they are for a start installing biometric gadgets at public health and educational institutions to monitor clock-in, clock-out of health workers and teachers at their duty stations.
Prof Suruma said salaries of absentee civil servants will be deducted equivalent to work days missed, he said.

“Last week, we were in Jinja for a meeting with district local governments and we were told that some districts no longer pay civil servants who absent themselves from work. We want other districts to follow suit because this is kisanja hakuna mchezo (no playing games),” he said yesterday.
Kaliro, Kayunga, Buvuma, Bulambuli, Bugiri and Bududa districts-- all in eastern Uganda-- are already implementing the scheme.

Prof Suruma, the former Finance minister and current Makerere University chancellor, made the comments while receiving an assortment of biometric machines donated by the British government through its overseas development arm, the Department for International Development (DFID).
The gadgets will be installed at public facilities in 22 districts in eastern Uganda piloting the scheme and the supervisors will be required to file daily reports of their supervisees’ attendance to OPM.
Bureaucrats say the previous practice of registering staff presence at work manually was ineffective and susceptible to errors.

Prof Suruma said citizens dissatisfied with delivery of government services had started reporting absentee employees directly to authorities using social media platforms, particularly WhatsApp.
“This has increased the level of community engagement in ensuring service delivery,” Prof Suruma said.

Mr Adrian Green, the head of Growth and Economic Management at DFID, said the equipment they donated also included laptops, printers, computers and their accessories.

They will be deployed for gathering, processing and analysing biometric information on teachers and health workers to improve the quality of service delivery at schools and hospitals.

“This is a grant worth half a million British pounds for a partnership we have been implementing with government for essential service delivery since 2015 where we have registered tremendous results,” Mr Green said.

About biometric tool. A biometric time and attendance system is a time clock that tracks some unique physical characteristic of each employee when they clock in or out. Biometric data comes in many forms, such as vascular patterns, fingerprints, iris patterns and voice recognition. Biometrics cannot be forged.

ENSONGA: OKULUNGAMYA EBIKWATA KU FEDERO

Sebo Katikkiro, tusaba otukkirize tuyite mu ggwe okunnyonnyola obuganda kalonda akwata ku Federo emaze emyaka nga etawaanya ebirowoozo by’Obuganda.

 

Twagala tulage Endowooza ya feredo engeri gye tateekebwa mu birowoozo by’Abaganda n’ekyagiteekesaamu. Tulage ekiseera w’eyogererwako, tulage engeri gyeteekebwawo, Esabibwa busabibwa oba Egabibwa bugabibwa?, tulage by’eteekawo  n’Enkizo z’erina ku nfuga Endala.

 

Ebyafaayo:  Obuganda bwe bwamala okulaba ng’Omuzungu yalina Ekigendererwa eky’okugattika Buganda mu Mawanga amalala  olw’okutondawo Omugattiko gwa Uganda eyo mu myaka gy’ana (40), Obuganda  ekyo bwakigaanira dala nga bulengedde Ag’azibu agaali gajja okuva mu mugattiko guno.

 

Agazibu kati ge tutubiddemu bajjajjaffe baagalengera nga sigannateekebwawo era ne bagezaako bwezizingirire okugagema n’okugaziyiza!!

 

Olutalo lw’okugagema lwazuzumba nnyo nyo ng’Obuganda bugamba Omungereza Endagaano Buganda ze yakola naye zikomezebwe, Buganda yeefuge ereme okulinda okuteekebwawo kwa Uganda n’okugattikibwa mu Uganda.

 

Ekya Buganda okukomya Endagaano Omungereza kyamuwunyira ziizi kubanga kyali kisaabulula Ekigendererwa kye eky’okutondawo Uganda asigale ng’atufugiramu Obuddu ng’asinziira ewaabwe, nga kati bwe kiri!!! Obuganda  bwalaba Omuzungu abutwaliriza mpola abutuuse ku saawa eyokutondawo Uganda ku ntandikwa y’emyaka gy’enkaaga (60), mu October wa 1959, Obuganda bwalangirira Okukomezebwa kw’Endagaano z’Omungereza wamu n’okwefuga kwa Buganda.

 

Okulangirira kwa Buganda Omugereza kwamutuuza obufoofoto nga talaba ngeri gy’ayinza kukumenyawo oba okukumenyesaawo Buganda. Ekyo kyekyamutumisa wano Lord Munster, wabula naye natafuna kigendererwa kyamutumya kubanga Obuganda bwagaana okwogera naye okuva  lwe  bwali bumaze okulangirira  okwefuga kwa Buganda.

 

Olw’okubanga mu kiseera ekyo Obuganda bwali butandise okuteeka obwesige bwabwo obusinga obungi mu Buyigirize ne mu Bayigirize. Omuzungu mu Bayigirize mwe yayita Obuganda okubusuuzaawo Okwefuga kwa Buganda!!!

 

Enfuga ya FEDERO Omuzungu yagiwa Abayigirize ba Buganda abaalimba Obuganda, mu bugenderevu oba mu butamanya, nti Enfuga ya Federo yali efaanana era nga yenkanira ddala okwefuga Buganda kwe yali erangiridde !!! Okwo Abayigirize baagattako nti naye Federo “Enkizo” gye yalina kwe kuba nti yali esobozesa Buganda okwefugira mu Uganda mbu ekyali kijja okufuula Kabaka wa Buganda owa Uganda yonna!!!

Obuganda kino bwe bwakitunuulira nga kyali kijja kubuyamba okuggyawo Okutiisatiisa kwa Bungereza ku Buganda olw’okulangirira Okwefuga ate Kabaka wa Buganda kimufuule owa Uganda yonna, mangu ago, bwefukulula ne begenda ewa Gavana  bumugambe nti “ bwali buyinza okukkiriza okwefugira mu Uganda singa Gavana akkiriza Buganda okufuna Federo, ng’Obuganda  sibumanyi nti Gavana yennyini ye yali awadde Abayigirize Abaganda ekya Federo bagende bakisimbe mu birwowoozo  by’Abaganda!!!

 

Bw’etyo Federo bwe yaleetebwa mu Buganda era eky’okusuuzaawo Abaganda  okwefuga kwe baali balangiridde kye kyagireesa!!! Kinakuwaza nyo  okulaba n’okuwulira ng’Abaganda, na buli kati, bakyalowooza n’okukkiriza nti bwe bafuna Federo baba bafunye ekyenkana  Okwefuga, kubanga Federo eba ejja kubawa Obuyinza obwefuga n’okweramula, ebawe Eddembe ery’okwesalirawo ku bintu byabwe n’obuwangwa bwabwe!!!

 

Twogera di ku Federo:  Embeera eri emu yokka gye twogereramu ku Federo. Amawanga amatuufu nga buli limu lirina Obuyinza bwalyo obufuga n’obulamula, nga buli limu lirina ebyalyo, ng’ettaka(territory) , eby’obugagga byalyo era nga buli limu lirina Eddembe lyalyo erijjuvu ery’okwesalirawo,Amawanga ago bwe gasalawo okutondawo Ensi eyawamu, nga bwe gwali ku Uganda mu 1962, amawanga ago Ensi ey’awamu Gagisondera eby’okugiteekawo n’okugiyimirizaawo, nga gatoola ku byago. Eggwanga erisalawo okwesigaliza obuyinza obufuga n’obulamula obusinga obungi ne lyesigalaiza ebyalyo n’eddembe lyalyo ery’okwesalirawo n’obuwangwa ebisinga obungi, eryo Eggwanga liba lyewadde Fedro mu nsi ey’awamu etondeddwawo Eggwanga lino olw’eddembe lyalyo eryu’okwesalirawo, bwe liba lisondera Ensi ey’awamu teriba na gwe liteesa naye alikkirize okuleeta kye lireese. Bwe wabeerawo agezaako okuligaana kye lisazeewo okusonda, awo Ensonga ligivaamu buvi ne liddayo ewaalyo .

 

Bino bye tuyiga mu kitundu kino:

 

  1. Federo ssi basaba nsabe era ssi bagabangabe, wabula beewa neewe.

 

  1. Federo Obuyinza obufuga n’obulamula, obwannannyini ku bintu n’Eddembe ly’okwesalirawo bye bizaala era bye biteekawo Federo.

 

  1. Federo tesobola n’akatono kuzaala oba kuteekawo Buyinza bufuga, bulamula, tezaala bintu bya gwanga wamu n’Eddembe lyokwesalirawo, nga’abaganda abangi bwe basuubira ebyo bye bigizaala era bye bigiteekawo, omwana tasobola kuzaala amuzaala.
  2. Atalina Buyinza bufuga na bulamula, atalina bibye ng’ettaka n’ebirala atalina Dembe lya kwesalirawo oyo aba talina bisaanizo bya kwogera na kusuubira Federo.

 

  1. Bwolaba nga buli lwoyogera ku Federo owalirizibwa okugisaba obusabi, kimanye nti Ebisanizo oba tobirina. Bw’oba nga muli owulira wettanira nnyo okubeera ne federo, sooka olowooze ku ngeri gyoyinza okufunamu Ebisaanizo nga bw’onoomala okubifuna olyoke olowooze ku federo.

 

 

Wano twagala okukikkaatiriza nti Federo atalina Buyinza bufuga na bulamula era atalina bibye na Dembe lijjuvu lya kwesalirawo  yo federo tesobola n’akatono, kubimuwa kubanga byo bye bizaala Federo era bye bigimuwa. N’olwekyo, Federo terina w’efaananira na kwenkana Kwefuga, nga Gavana bwe yalimba Abaganda mu 1961. Kye kyava kiba nti 9thOctober 1962 bwe lwatuuka,  twagenda e Kololo tubeerewo Kabaka Muteesa II ngafuuka Kabaka wa Uganda yonna!!! Kyatubuukako bwe twalaba nga Muteesa yeesimbyewo butengerere, ng’omujulizi, nga Milton Obote akwasibwa “Obuyinza” bwa Uganda !!! E Kololo twavaayo tutolotooma!!!

 

 

Tusanidde okukitegeera nga bwe tulabye wagguli, nti Federo tekuba kwefuga wabula kika kya Bufuge, kati obutukaabya  akagiigiiri. Buganda bw’erya e kibanja mu Uganda ekiyitibwa federo, kino kitegeeza nti waggulu wa Buganda wabeerayo Uganda. Ate waggulu wa kabaka wabeerayo  pulezidenti . Buno buba bufuge bwennyini!!!

 

Federo  Buganda gye yafuna mu 1962 yali ewa Buganda  Ekitongole kya poliisi n’Ekiramuzi ebijjuvu. Mu 1963 Buganda yatandika okuzimba police posts zaayo e Nateete, e Kalungu n’e Kayunga. Wakati mu kuzimba police posts zaayo, gavumenti ya Uganda yalagira Buganda eleker’awo okuzizimba era, wakati mu kuba nti Bwino yali awa Buganda  ebbeetu okuzizimba, Buganda ssi yaddayo kuzizimbako wadde etoffaali erimu (1) n’okutuusa kati, anti “Akunsinga akukubisa gw’okutte. “ Kino tukiggyeyo okulaga Obufuge obuli mu Federo!!

 

Ebyo byonna nga bikyali awo, wakati mu kuba nga gavumenti ya Uganda n’amateeka gaayo ssi bamanyi era ssi bakkiriza nti Eggwanga Buganda n’Obwakabaka bwalyo weebiri era n’ENDAGAANO Buganda mwe yayingirira mu BUDDU bwa Uganda  nga yamenyebwawo mu 1966, kati oluyimba lwa federo lwe tukooloobya lulina mugasoki, lulina makuluki     era luyinza kutuwaaki???!!!

 

Kyetaagisa nyo nyo Abaganda TULEKER’AWO okusambagalanga obusambagazi mu nsonga za Nyaffe Buganda. Tuteekwa okusooka okumira, tuve ku nyimba era tusengeke ensonga za Buganda tumanye ebisooka n’ebikomererayo.

 

Sebo Katikkiro Mayiga tukwebaza nnyo okutukkiriza tuyite mu ggwe okulungamya Ensonga  ya Federo.

In Uganda, there is the Age limit legal case about the long serving President of Uganda wanting to rule the African country for the rest of his life:

Mr Mabirizi, a lawyer has declared that the Parliament of Uganda overthrew the constitution any how for the President's benefit:

Mr Mabirizi all loaded up with paper work in the court. He has no time to buy himself a modern language suitcase with wheels in which to load in his heavy reference documents 

In Summary

By Misairi Thembo Kahungu

Uganda, Mbale Lawyer Male Mabirizi may have had a false start to the hearing of the age limit case by making wild claims against one of the judges, but he made a stunning comeback on Tuesday with a thrilling submission to the Constitutional Court sitting in Mbale that left the justices spellbound. 
Social media erupted with praise for his talent and delivery, with some users comparing him to some other maverick global figures.
“My God, this Male Mabirizi guy is probably the smartest Ugandan,” Titus Seruga, whose profile shows him as a Ugandan living in Belgium, posted on Facebook, adding: “We officially have a Mike Rose in Uganda, this kind of smartness needs to be rewarded with a parliamentary seat.”
Seruga was probably referring to Mike Ross, the fictional character in Suits, a popular American legal drama television series, about a brilliant but unqualified lawyer.

His submission 
In the eastern Mbale District, Mr Mabirizi, who is a qualified lawyer but not an enrolled advocate of the High Court, was not allowed to make his submissions from the bar --- a courtroom area set apart for lawyers.
“I call upon you, my Lords, to find that Parliament did colourable legislation for Articles 1 and 2 and actually when you look at the Hansard (official record of parliamentary proceedings), it amended Article 260 directly,” he said.
“They (MPs) did not separate the two sittings of Parliament with 14 sitting days, and without referring the matter to a referendum before the assent.” 
317 MPs in December voted for and 97 against a motion to amend the Constitution and, among other things, scrap the presidential age limits and extend the tenure of the President and Parliament from 5 to 7 years, beginning with the current officeholders. The petitioners, including Mr Mabiriza and Opposition MPs, want the Constitutional Amendment Act nullified on grounds that the lawmakers subverted the Constitution by failing to follow laid down procedure for changing the supreme law. 
Mr Mabirizi elected to represent himself unlike other petitioners that hired the services of enrolled advocates. 
“Parliament did what we call constitutional replacement and overthrew the Constitution,” he submitted, adding: “This is the reason, my Lords; you should throw out that amendment so that the Constitution is upheld.”
Article 260(1) of the Constitution provides that a Bill seeking to amend any of the provisions in Clause (2) of the Article shall not be taken as passed unless - a) it is supported at the second and third readings in Parliament by not less than two-thirds of all members of Parliament; and b) it has been ratified by at least two-thirds of the members of the district council in each of at least two-thirds of all the districts of Uganda.
This elaborate procedure, Mr Mabirizi argued, was not followed. 
“My issue, from the [records in the] Hansard, is that Article 260 was amended and even the Speaker never bothered, and so by not separating the two sittings, she abrogated her constitutional duty,” he added. 
“This Male Mabirizi man is something else. The man understands what he does. No wonder D/AG (Deputy Attorney General) Mwesigwa Rukutana, (minister) Hilary Onek and the judge never found time to sue him for the children claims,” journalist Sadab Kitatta tweeted under the hashtag #AgeLimitPetition. 
The judges sat with rapt attention, rarely interjecting the way they have done with other petitioners’ and government lawyers since hearing of the petition began on Monday. 
Frank Mugisha, who identifies himself as director at Kream Zone Media Uganda Ltd Company, posted on his Facebook page that “Male Mabirizi Kiwanuka is serous this time after taking on Buganda Kingdom.”
Mr Mabirizi shot to fame and received approval from sections of tenants when he sued Buganda king Muwenda Mutebi for illegally collecting land fees (Busuulu) and demanded, among other things, for a disclosure of his bank account details. 
In the run-up to the hearing of the constitutional petition, the lawyers asked Justice Elizabeth Musoke to disqualify herself from the Coram over conflict of interest arising from allegations that she had had fruitful affairs with Disaster Preparedness minister Hilary Onek, and Deputy Attorney General Rukutana. 
Mr Rukutana, who is leading the government team at the ongoing Constitutional petition hearing, dismissed the claims as unfounded.
Mr Mabirizi dropped the preliminary objections, giving him the leeway on Tuesday to address the judges and steal the thunder the way Kethi Diana Kilonzo, a young lawyer, excelled as head counsel for Africa Centre for Open Governance petition during the presidential election petition against Uhuru Kenyetta’s 2013 declaration as Kenya’s president.

UGANDA RURAL MEDICAL HEALTH MANAGEMENT



KAMPALA - The in-charge of Semuto Health Centre IV, in Nakaseke district, Dr Bernard Kakeeto could hardly express himself as he appeared before the health committee of Parliament on Wednesday over gross management of the health facility.

The MPs were interacting with the district officers led by Ignatius Koomu, the district chairperson.

The MPs on the committee chaired by Dr Micheal Bukenya accused Kakeeto of performing poorly despite being the highest paid civil servant in the district.

Kakeeto earns sh2.5m monthly, while other health officials earn sh1.5m. He also has a car and house provided by the Government to enable him do his work effectively. 

Bukenya said on the January 25, the committee visited Nakaseke district to assess the impact of the alleged outbreak of the Crimean Congo fever, which was reported to Parliament by the Nakaseke South MP, Paul Lutamaguzi.

During their visit, the committee visited a number of health facilities, including Semuto Health centre IV, where they observed issues related to administration.

“When we reached the health facility, it was bushy with rubbish cluttered on the ground, yet the it has rubbish bins. The mama kits delivered by National Medical Stores are allegedly stolen continuously and there were allegations that health personnel extort money from patients. The health facility is almost non-functional,” said Bukenya.

Joel Yoweri Ssebikali, the Ntwetwe county MP, said when the team members entered the laboratory, the lab technician was smart, but the lab was dusty, the mortuary was surrounded by the bush and staff quarters were being encroached by weeds from nearby gardens.

Edward Ssembatya, the Katikamu south MP added: “Some of the medical staff were demanding for money from the patients, before they were discharged,”
It was from these raised concerns that Kakeeto was asked to defend himself.

In a low tone, Kakeeto said: “I will not take the raised concerns personally, but will explain what happens. On why the facility’s environment is dirty, it is situated in a town area, not fenced and people litter the place. However, sometimes, the rubbish is blown by the wind to the health centre,” he said.

On staff absenteeism, Kakeeto admitted the problem exists, but added that the involved personnel were counselled.

Explaining why the centre could not carry out C-sections despite having a theatre, Kakeeto said the health center lacks a blood bank to store blood that can be used during emergencies.
 
Some of the committee members demanded that Kakeeto resigns from that position over abuse of public funds and mismanagement of the facility, which they said denies the public the right to health services.

It is probably better for the President of the Republic of Uganda to rule this state under Federalism than Unitary: 

Third Deputy Prime Minister and constitutional

Kampala. A senior member of Buganda kingdom, Apollo Makubuya, says the current polarization, political chaos and government paralysis is a clear call to revive federalism to avoid a failed state.

Mr. Makubuya says the current political crisis is a result of lack of respect to the constitution, broken rule of law and the neglect to the people’s popular will. Makubuya is the third Deputy Prime Minister and constitutional affairs Minister of Buganda Kingdom.

He says article 1 of the Uganda’s constitution states that “All power belongs to the people who shall exercise their sovereignty” and that “people shall be governed through their will and consent”.

“Few individuals cannot and should not impose their will or their vision and rule on people against consent. I believe that the people of Buganda and generally Uganda wish to benefit from federal. But also those not wanting it, can remain in the unitary system” Makubuya says.

He was speaking to Daily monitor from his Diamond based offices in Kampala in an exclusive interview on Saturday.

“What we see today is people forcing self-ambitions regardless of the popular demands and this has polarized the country. Everyone looks at the other as an enemy. People are playing zero sum politics. We should be able to listen to each other. In other multi party democracies, politics is not all about fights or hate,” Mr. Makubuya said.

“The broken health care and education services, the struggling economy, the non-democratic tendencies puts the country into a scenario of a failed state, totally failed, Mr. Makubuya says adding that democracy, the economy, rule of law, the entire constitution have all collapsed.

He said the current paralysis in the nation where medical, judiciary, education go on rampant strikes can be eliminated with federalism.

“I don’t believe because we have a constitution, regular elections, the parliament, judiciary and those arms of government that we have democracy. They must function independently then we say we are a democratic, peaceful and stable nation,” he said.

“How do you assert that POWER lies in the hands of the people when their popular demands are brushed aside? We need a change of political strategy that will promote democracy and this is federalism,” Mr. Makubuya added.

Buganda Kingdom has persistently called for federalism; a question Mr. Makubuya says should be resolved. Speaking from Mukono last month, Buganda Kingdom King Ronald Mutebi called for inclusion of federal in the ongoing constitutional amendments.
Buganda lost federal when the then Prime Minister Milton Obote abrogated the 1962 constitution in 1966 where the kingdom of Buganda had been awarded the system. The 1995 constitution didn’t reinstate the system although the Benjamin Odoki and Fredrick Ssempebwa reports had shown overwhelming support for the system from regions of Buganda.

Government says that Mengo has not formally presented its quest for federal.

“We have not received any federal requests from Mengo,” Gen. Kahinda Otafiire the constitutional and Justice Affairs minister told Daily Monitor by telephone.

Mengo replied Otafiire saying he's just playing around.

"It is the government that set up the Odoki and Ssempebwa commissions. The largest part of Buganda and generally Uganda were clear about the quest for federal system. Those are the proposals the government should use. We dont have to make new requests. If they have lost the copies of our proposals, we still have them and can avail copies," Mengo spokesperson Noah Kiyimba said on Sunday.

President Museveni has repeatedly indicated government will never grant federalism because it creates two countries.

Mengo signed an agreement with the British in 1961 and federal was awarded to the Kingdom abandoning the quest for self-independence.
Mr. Makubuya says that a situation where the opposition can’t talk with the ruling party with confrontation all the time is deplorable.

He spoke of the regional tier that Buganda rejected in 2006 saying that it falls short of “the kind of aspirations” Buganda wants.
“We will continue to push for federo of course working with political actors like those who want to push for private members bill to include federo into the constitution but they need to consult with us,” he said.

He says that the unitary system has simply undermined the even development of the country and over centralized power in the hands of the ruling class at the expense of the regions.

“Although there is a decentralization mechanism, we know for all-purpose the central government wields power over the unviable decentralized units. We in Buganda believe peace prosperity, development and stability of the country would best be served under federal,” Makubuya says.
He says the size of the country does not matter in a federal setting. Countries like Switserland which is many times smaller than Uganda is under federal system. And that federal can co-exist with unitary yakking, the example of the United Kingdom.

“The international trend is federalism. When there is empowerment of regional states there is respect for diversity and pursuit of unity. Federal will help this nation progress, stabilize and develop,” Mr. Makubuya said adding that government should resolve this question.

Traditional institutions and Buganda in particular, he says have a serious role in promoting commercial undertakings, socio services, health care and preservation of culture.

 

Confrontation between Mengo and the central Gov’t

Mengo has previously had face-offs with the central government with major one being in 1966 when then Prime Minister attacked Kabaka Edward Muteesa’s palace forcing him into exile. This was after Buganda parliament ordered for the removal of the Central government from the soil of the state of Buganda.

In 2008 Lukiiko opposed the expansion of Kampala city as per the Kampala Capital City Bill 2009 and resolved to press government for federal status beyond what is granted under the regional government system.
This caused the arrest of three Buganda officials; Betty Nambooze, Peter Mayiga and Lubega Seggona over the Land Bill.

The July 2009 conflict where then Buganda Premier was blocked from entering Bugerere ahead of Kabaka’s visit.

The 1995 CA failure to include federal in the new constitution. The match to parliament led by the then Premier Joseph Mulwanyamuli where Buganda officials were arrested and detained.

This is an example of African political actors listening with one ear and then what they have heard goes out through the other ear.

The real photo of King Muteesa I of the Kingdom of Buganda:

 

28 October, 2017

 

By the Observer

kaggwandre@gmail.com

 

 

Ssekabaka Muteesa I Mukaabya Walugembe Kayiira is an important fixture in Uganda’s history.

Yet no one knows for sure, what the man looked like. It is Muteesa I that welcomed the European missionaries and explorers that would later open the way to colonization by England.

In 1862, when John Hanning Speke headed to Uganda in search of River Nile’s source, the camera had been invented 26 years earlier.

But even though Speke is documented as the first European to meet Muteesa, there is no photographic documentation to support the fact.

It was not until 1875 and Henry Morton Stanley, a Welsh-born American journalist and explorer trying to map the region in detail, that much of the imagery of the era was taken.

Because of the relationship Stanley had built with Muteesa I, he managed to take the one known photograph of the king, now said to sit in a museum in Belgium.

Mutesa's only known photograph, now said to be in a museum in Belgium

The blurry black and white picture does not give much away, but Muteesa is recognizable, surrounded by his subjects wearing white tunics, some of them with long overcoats.

A number of documents, some of them brought to the public attention by Andrea Stultiens’ research, suggest that those standing around him were chiefs.

Stultiens is a researcher and professional photographer, who uses photo exhibitions as a way of availing history not easily accessible by the public.

In Stultiens’ write up, where she partly quotes Stanley’s 1878 book, Through The Dark Continent, Muteesa is identified as an Emperor of Uganda (Buganda), then two people behind him are identified as Senkembo, a chief of Kyaggwe and Kyambalango, only referred to as a chief. Others are referred to by their titles such as Pokino and Prime Minister.

Since Stanley stayed in Uganda for more than 15 years, the picture was only developed after he left the country but still could not be printed in the book that documented his travels.

“When Stanley’s report on his travels, including the meeting with Muteesa, was published, it was not possible to directly print photographs. The photo was adapted to an engraving and included in his book,” says Stultiens.

Same man, different versions

In Stanley’s book, the engraved picture has more defined features than the original.

“In the process of the sharpening, the engraver significantly altered the appearances of the people he was depicting,” says Stultiens.

Today, most books about Buganda use different illustrations of Muteesa I; for instance, Sophia Lyon’s book, Uganda’s White Man of Work, Alexander Mackay, has the picture mirrored to face a different direction and goes ahead to add limbs as well as make him lighter and older than in the known photograph. Some observers say he looks more Caucasian.

Daniel Kimomera, a custodian of the kingdom’s royal drums, said: “One of the drawings gives him a longer neck, which is very rare among the Ganda people.”

The illustration from the original photograph

Abdu Naru Kimbowa, a former drummer in Muteesa II’s palace, says he has seen so many different illustrations of the ssekabaka that he does not know which of them is his true likeness.

“Almost everyone flaunts a different illustration as Muteesa I; I wouldn’t be shocked if no one knew what the man looked like!” he says. 
Maybe this Stanley photograph will put those fears to rest.

Theories about altering Muteesa’s appearance abound, with some arguing it was a technological challenge, yet others say it was deliberate.

In her book Visualizing Africa in Nineteenth-century British Travel Accounts, Leila Koivunen says: “As a rule, images of African people became more discernibly negroid during the illustration process – besides the systematic darkening of complexions, facial features were modified to reveal elements regarded as negroid; thick protruding lips, big mouths, flat noses…”

Stultiens notes that if darkening Africans was deliberate as Koivunen asserts, then presenting a light-skinned Muteesa was not a technological fail – he was going against their known definitions of a ‘true’ African, so he must have been light-skinned indeed.

It is said that Stanley had developed a special liking for Muteesa and thus while describing him to the English, he referred to him as a handsome man whose mannerisms could easily fit in their own.

In a letter to Queen Victoria published in the Daily Telegraph on November 15, 1875, Stanley describes Muteesa’s curiosity about Christianity and ability to read Arabic while emphasizing his and the people’s intelligence.

It is thought that based on this flattering description, whoever made the illustration thought of Muteesa more as a white man than a black one, due to age-old prejudices.   

Muteesa's journey to Belgium

In Buganda, very little is known about the photograph that inspired the many illustrations of Muteesa I; this is what inspired Stultiens to embark on her research, after learning about the photograph in 2013.

“I was surprised I had not come across it before, since I had been interested in historical photographs in and from Uganda for about five or six years at the time.”

Her next move was to share it on the History in Progress (HIP) Facebook page to see what people knew about it, and to her shock, there was almost no response.

“I wondered why. Especially since I had noticed that photographs showing the late kings, Mwanga, Daudi Chwa and (especially) Muteesa II were always very popular.”

The research led her to the Royal Museum for Central Africa at Tervuren in Belgium, where three copies of the original Stanley photos are.

Stultiens says Belgium’s interest in Stanley’s work is because he worked for King Leopold; “He explored and basically mapped the Congo colony for him and thus their interest in his works.”

In 1982, Stanley’s great grandson Richard M Stanley sold all the inherited material including pictures, maps and testimonies to Belgium after sensing lack of interest from the British government.

In a Skype conversation with The Observer, Stultiens said she had tried to access the original print of the work to have it included in an exhibition, in vain.

Of course as Stultiens puts it, this is symptomatic for the problems surrounding materials very relevant for African audiences yet ‘hidden’ in European archives and museums.

And sadly, the picture does not hold the same value to Belgians as it would for Ugandans; there, it is the photographer and not the photograph that holds value.

In Uganda, the ruling political party is delaying to provide cash to its supporters, who want to get on with convincing the population about the benefits of changing the constitution on Presidential Age Limit: 

The Yellow dressed citizens of Uganda that have high hopes in the government of Uganda

By the Redpepper newspaper, Uganda

2nd October, 2017

All isn’t well in the NRM caucus as members, who are used to being given money for every major decision they make, are in riotous mood wondering why their chairman YK Museveni has lately become very stingy with cash.

RP Online has reliably learnt that since the Magyezi saga started, the NRM MPs haven’t pocketed anything yet they expected a lot from Museveni whose generosity when it comes to procuring political support rivals that of Father Christmas.

 

“We have so far had two caucus meetings and were given only Shs500,000 in each meeting totaling to Shs1m so far yet the population thinks we got billions to pass this thing. The other day I went to my constituency, people almost killed me. They said we were given Shs80m on Wednesday yet there was nothing like that. Even NRM elected leaders in the constituency can’t mobilize any support for the scrapping of age limit. How can we mobilize when we don’t have any money from State House? It’s their party and that’s how Mzee made us used. We can only stage rallies and processions showing support for age limit once facilitated in a special way, otherwise there is no way we are going to face these angry and hungry people in our constituencies. It’s really a bad situation and we can’t use our own salary because it’s being chopped by money lenders and yet even security agencies like UPDF and Kayihura’s police that used to give us fuel for such political mobilization don’t even have enough for their own operations,” ranted one of the senior NRM MPs from Buganda.

 

The MP maintained that unless Museveni releases money, there is no way they are going to face the angry population to market life presidency.

“The way people are poor and angry, even if you give Shs1bn per constituency it won’t be enough. People will chew it in just one week and the MPs will become broke again yet by passing life presidency we are digging our own grave,” said another MP adding that it’s too early for M7 to count it a done deal because the Magyezi thing can still be defeated once there is secret ballot because majority MPs are poor and angry at M7 for delaying to give them money for mobilization.

 

Another MP ranted that even when they are clearly being targeted by the angry population, there has been reluctance to give them VIP escorts on grounds the Kayihura police force is broke (its budget was cut by a half), over stretched and has no money for such unplanned deployments of VIP guards at MPs homes and offices.

Some MPs want police protection for even their children scattered in different schools because the angry young people in Kampala have been threatening to harm their children in Kampala schools and elderly parents in the villages upcountry.

The MPs expect M7 to order Kayihura to deploy police to guard the MPs families and homes both in Kampala and upcountry, something the IGP isn’t ready to do as it requires a lot of money which isn’t available in the police budget.

 
What makes it even worse, MPs are saying they too are broke and can’t meet feeding, transportation and other allowances for such police VIP guards assigned to cater for their personal security, their own children/spouses and elderly parents in Kampala and upcountry.

Some MPs want police guards for even their girl friends and side dishes. What made MPs even financially more hopeless was an event of Wednesday evening. The GCW office sent out messages that something had been organized for them at Serena where they expected to converge and celebrate the thumping of MPs and other Ugandans opposed to life presidency and the passing of the Magyezi motion.

They flocked Serena expecting to pick money just like was the case in 2005 when money was picked at Mosa Courts only to be disappointed with what they found. It was just dinner that was organized for them by State House and M7 was nowhere to be seen and there was even nobody officially to address them on his behalf.

“Instead we were told Mzee is very busy but this dinner has been organized for you by aides led by Gen Nalweyiso who improvised and found Shs40m to organize it for you to reflect on the day’s events,” one MP quoted the organizers as telling them.

The MP adds: “you should have been there to see the gloomy faces MPs wore on being told it was just dinner without any transport allowances or big envelopes thanking them for backing Magyezi.”

Another MP said this Serena fiasco adds onto what they suffered in a meeting with Security Minister Henry Tumukunde recently. “We went for the meeting expecting some good money only to be given Shs100,000 each purporting it to be transport refund,” said the MP adding that Museveni could pay heavily for being mean on them.

One MP said he wouldn’t be going anywhere to market life presidency when public consultations on the Magyezi motion begin without being given a minimum of Shs1bn.

“I go into this knowing this is my last term as MP and I can’t risk my political career on peanuts. The minimum I will accept is Shs1bn or else I’m not into this life presidency project.”

The Buganda Land Claim that colonialist only gave mailo land to cultural leaders is all about telling lies by the government of Uganda:

 

By Mr Peter Mulira

While appearing on Baba Radio in Jinja recently, President Museveni incorrectly referred to mailo land as satanic and alleged that the colonialists only distributed it to cultural leaders.
The claim that the colonialists distributed land to only cultural leaders is to say the least misleading.

In Buganda, cultural leaders are the clan and sub-clan heads with the Sabataka at their head.

These leaders did not receive land under the 19000 Agreement.
Prior to the advent of colonialism land in Buganda was individualised through official (ettaka ly’obwakabaka, clan and chiefs’ land) and personal ownership (ettaka ly’obwesenze.)
Any person owning land under this system, including the “abakopi” or “abeesenze”) could apply to the lukiko to be certified as the owner of his customary holding.

On his application being successful after due diligence, the applicant was issued with a provisional certificate which was filed at the land office for survey purposes and issuance of a final certificate by the Governor.
Section 15 of the 1900 Agreement gives a lie to the claim that the colonialists distributed mailo land.

It reads: ‘As regards the allotment of the 8,000 square miles among the 1,000 private landowners, this will be a matter to be left to the decision of the lukiko with an appeal to the Kabaka. The lukiko will be empowered to decide as to the validity of claims, the number of claimants and the extent of land granted…...”
No one received more than what he owned under the customary system although four developments led to large scale forcing the government to limit to 30 square miles which an individual could own. This frenzy was caused by four developments.
First the cost of surveying land was beyond many people who decided to sell.

Secondly, the plague which afflicted Kyaggwe County forced many residents to relocate elsewhere after selling their land.
Thirdly, some people did not see any value in a mere piece of paper namely the title deed.

Fourthly, the Land (survey) Law and the Land Tax Law forced many people to prefer cash to landholding.

The sales were not arbitrary, but were regulated by the Land (Agreements) Law and all details, including the agreements witnessed by the Katikkiro and two chiefs, the receipts, and the survey records were filed in the land office and are captured on microfilms, which thankfully, are now in the custody of the Commission of Inquiry into Land Matters after efforts to put them out of the way at the land office became public.

In another programme on Bukedde TV Kampala minister Beti Kamya claimed that under the 1900 Buganda Agreement where many of the Kbaka’s subjects refused compensation for land required for a public project, the Kabaka would take the land from him and the land would be vested in the Uganda Land Commission. This was misleading.
In the first place, the minister was reading from section 4 of “The Law to Empower the Kabaka to Acquire Land for Purposes Beneficial to Nation” of 1945, not the Buganda Agreement.

Secondly, under that section, the Kabaka was allowed to force the owner to sell and if the owner refused, then the power to acquire the land would be invoked, but only after a committee of three had been appointed to advise on the purchase price.
There was no mention of Uganda Land Commission, which in any case, was a creature of the 1967 constitution that was enacted after kingdoms were abolished.
It is ironical that the government is now calling in aid a law which was passed 70 years ago by Buganda government to amend a constitution in which federo was rejected..

Land-less Central Government of Uganda rejects the Buganda State land lease systems:

May 26, 2017

Written by Sadab Kitatta Kaaya



In a three-page letter written on May 17 to Buganda kingdom prime minister Charles Peter Mayiga, the minister for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Betty Amongi, raised the government’s strongest reservations yet to the kingdom’s ongoing land titling campaign dubbed Ekyapa mu ngalo.

Amongi’s letter, which is copied to President Museveni, Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi and Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda, among others, also invited Mayiga and Buganda Land Board (BLB) for a meeting the following day, May 18, to address her concerns.

According to Amongi’s letter, a copy of which The Observer has seen, the government is uncomfortable with the Ekyapa mu ngalo initiative because its implementation may conflict with Article 237 (8) of the Constitution and Section 31 (1) of the Land Act.

“How will you ensure that the occupants who become [lessees] do not lose their interest after the expiry of the lease? How will you arrive on the premium, ground rent and other terms and conditions in as far as Section 31 (3)(5)(8) and (9) are concerned?”Amongi asks.

The minister also wondered how Mengo would determine the nominal ground rent set by her ministry in 2011 under the Land (annual nominal ground rent) regulations statutory instrument 55.

“How will you handle tenants who will wish to acquire other registrable interests as stipulated under Section 38 of the Land (Amendment) Act?” Amongi wondered.

She also questioned why BLB, a privately registered company, came to manage land belonging to a cultural institution.

Kabaka Muwenda Mutebi with President Museveni at State House recently

“It has come to my knowledge that BLB has been transformed into a private company with a nominal shareholding by the Kabaka. The original concept of the official mailo is premised on it being institutional land held by the Kabaka as an institution and for the Kabaka to hold it in trust, on behalf of the people of Buganda,” Amongi said.

According to Amongi, a privately registered company cannot be accountable to the people of Buganda in as far as management of the official mailo is concerned.

She also asked how BLB, a privately incorporated company, will cater for the public interest of the beneficiaries of the official mailo. On May 24, Buganda royals petitioned the Justice Catherine Bamugemereire-led commission of inquiry into land matters to revisit BLB’s control over the estate of the late Kabaka Daudi Chwa II.

Prime Minister Rugunda has since asked Amongi to set up a sub-committee to investigate issues raised by Daudi Chwa’s family. The sub-committee is headed by Isaac Musumba, the minister of state for Urban Development. The family claims that part of the 350 square miles returned to the Kabaka belong to them but that BLB and the Kabaka have excluded them from its management.

GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS

In her letter, Amongi further wonders why BLB wrote to public institutions such as National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), government installations and entities, as well as local governments, urging them to vacate the kingdom land or pay “exorbitant ground rent and premium.”

“Under cabinet minute 125 (CT 2016), cabinet directed my ministry to engage the kingdom officials on this matter and report back. Therefore, I would like to hear your proposal on how we should handle this issue of land on which there are government installations, buildings and infrastructure offering public service to the population,” the Oyam South MP further wrote.

The minister has reportedly written to various government institutions urging them not to comply with BLB’s demands. Incidentally, in May 2015, the attorney general, Freddie Ruhindi, advised government entities to regularise their occupancy of Buganda kingdom’s land in light of the 2013 agreement between the Kabaka and the president.

Some of the entities that received Ruhindi’s letter include NWSC, Uganda Railways, the ministry for Local Government, Inspector General of Police, Prisons and ministry of Defence.

Ruhindi premised his correspondence on a 2015 meeting President Museveni convened at his country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhura district, which was also attended by Katikkiro Mayiga.

A source close to Amongi said the minister was moved to act after receiving seven petitions critical of the Kyapa mu ngalo from a cross-section of Baganda who included the Chwa family.

MENGO SHOCKED

Amongi’s letter came two weeks after the minister instructed the Bamugemereire commission of inquiry to take a keen interest in the Kyapa mu ngalo campaign.
Reliable sources say Amongi’s letter shocked and infuriated Mengo officials.

Amongi declined to be interviewed on the matter when The Observer contacted her on Thursday, but some officials at Mengo accuse her of acting in contravention of the August 1, 2013 agreement signed between Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi on behalf of the kingdom and President Museveni on behalf of the government.

In the agreement, the government undertook to revert to Buganda the former estate of Buganda kingdom comprised in land in urban centres and the kingdom’s former administrative centres, among other key properties.

The agreement also requires both parties not to engage in hostile propaganda against each other.

MENGO RESPONDS

During the May 18 meeting at the ministry of Lands boardroom, BLB officials told Amongi that issuance of leases started way back in May 1919 under the then Official Estates Act, which allowed every holder of the official estate to lease land.

“The practice of obtaining leases was carried on through the 1960s even when the kingdom was abolished in 1966 and official estates vested into Uganda Land Commission [ULC],” BLB stated in its eight-page response.

With regard to compliance with the constitution, BLB said in its statement that the Kyapa mu ngalo campaign guarantees security of tenure.

“The campaign does not in any way adversely affect the security of occupancy; in fact it further enhances it by providing added security in form of a well-surveyed and formally registered piece of land to persons who are merely lawful or bona fide occupants,” BLB stated.

BLB managing director David Kiwalabye Male could not be reached for a comment. He is currently visiting the USA with Mayiga. But in his statement to Amongi, he said BLB respects the law and would abide by the provisions of the Land Act in regard to determining ground rent and the nominal ground rent.

About BLB being a private company, Mengo stated that BLB, as opposed to the 1962 statutory body, is a department in the kingdom.

“In 2015, because of its increasing roles and challenges, it was incorporated into a legal entity solely owned by the Kabaka of Buganda who is a corporation sole under Article 246 of the Constitution,” Mengo stated.

“BLB is an agent of the Kabaka, its role is to manage and administer the kingdom’s estates. It is accountable through its board to the cabinet of Buganda kingdom and ultimately the Kabaka of Buganda who [is] accountable to the people of Buganda through clear cultural and structural systems,” Mengo stated, further telling Amongi that the issue was an internal matter of Buganda kingdom.

We have learnt that the minister has since referred BLB’s letter to the attorney general for interpretation.

Well then how come a ragtag conquering army comes along as well and tries to manage ancient cultural lands in Africa.

In Africa, The Ancient Independent State of Buganda has renewed a 49-year ownership lease on its soil for the land- less Central Government of Uganda:

UGANDA, KAMPALA.

The Buganda Parliamentary Caucus has asked Buganda Kingdom to reconsider a recent directive by Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi to Buganda Land Board (BLB) for the issuance of land titles to all his subjects occupying his land with a lease period of 49 years.

The MPs instead proposed that a 99-year lease period be granted on Kabaka’s land under Buganda’s new initiative dubbed Kyapa mu Ngalo (a land title at your hands), a period they considered long enough for Kabaka’s subjects to legitimise their tenancy, instead of the suggested 49 years.

Announcing the undertaking recently, Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga said the land titles would be valid for a period of 49 years, but renewable at the expiry of that period.

The MPs’ proposal was part of wide range of issues raised in a meeting between the Buganda MPs’ caucus and Mr Mayiga who was flanked by his deputies and members of his cabinet.

The proposal to review the lease years was officially presented by Ms Cissy Namujju, the Woman Member of Parliament for Lwengo District, on behalf of the visiting group, who resounded the public’s fears that the suggested period of 49 years is too short if the exercise is to yield the desired fruits.

The Katikkiro did not give a direct response to the MPs’ concern although he had earlier in his opening remarks explained that the method of renewal for the leases would be automatic at the expiry of the 49 years.

“Renewal is automatic for as long as one fulfils the lease conditions. Most of us may have died and the issue of renewal will be handled by our children. We must maintain a lease system to maintain ownership of the kingdom land,” Mr Mayiga said.

He stressed that in some instances, they will reward commercial developers who will have invested more than $10 million.
Mr Mayiga assured the legislators that the massive lease offer is aimed at creating conclusive evidence of land ownership that will foster development through enabling the masses to access credit facilities as well as get rid of the rampant land conflicts.

He said despite criticism, public response has been good and ‘so far, we have registered about 500 requests for the leases.’
The caucus, according to its chair, Mr Muyanja Ssenyonga, had visited Mengo to get first-hand information on the ongoing ‘Kyapa ku Meeza’ promotion and the controversies surrounding the Buganda Land Board among others.

“We also want to know the development priorities (for Mengo) so that we incorporate them in the national budget as well as seek views of the kingdom on the proposals to form new town councils,” Mr Muyanja said.

Mr Ssenyonga described the meeting as very useful and it was resolved that such meetings would be held on a regular basis to exchange views and get a similar line of transmitting messages affecting the kingdom.

Nb

It was around 1965/66 when this same land ownership problem caused a crisis for this Ancient African Kingdom. Central Government was ordered off the Great Sovereign of Buganda. One wonders if the citizens of the whole country of this Kingdom have been Referred to. It is a Kingdom that is taking on the risks and the inefficiencies of what land less Central Government has all along been messing up. This Kingdom one hopes has the economic muscle to pay up the misery of accumulated international loans. One reckons it will be the Ganda grand children who will foot such international crippling bills in 50 years.

Do not say one never told any one about it in this very difficult economic world. One takes on such difficult decisions at ones own peril.

There seems to be no intention to continue building the Ganda Kings' Tombs at Kasubi, Kampala, Uganda:
 
By Frank Mujabi

2 March, 2017

A reliable source who visited Kasubi Royal Tombs last week has told BugandaWatch that she saw clear evidence that it may take a few more years to complete the reconstruction. She described the progress and future of Kasubi Royal Tombs as unclear.

She explained, “There are so many worker complaints, money is short and I heard that the site project manager is trying but with limited knowledge of Baganda cultural issues.”

 

These are the historical Ganda Tombs which were burnt down and no one has ever been prosecuted for their destruction.

 

 

Work overload, little pay and inadequate food supplies are the biggest complaints she heard about, the source said.

“The 15 disgruntled workers on the job now are too few. I was told they were about 30 until October 2016 when a half of them left complaining that Mengo was not paying them enough compared the workload. The site project manager, Mr. Jonathan Nsubuga promised to bring new workers but none has come.  Because the workers who left were the most skilled, everything slowed down,” the source told BugandaWatch.

On pay, the source said the workers are unhappy because Mengo is paying them less compared the group that abandoned the work used to earn. She explained, “It seems that Mengo let the best workers go; they earned UGX 40,000 ($11) per day but wanted more. The less skilled men who stayed thought they would also earn UGX 40,000 per day but Mengo is paying them only UGX 120,000 per week or UGX 24,000 ($6.85) per day.

In addition to money payments, the workers are supposed to be provided with food allowance. However, the source said, “What I learnt is that the 15 employees get one and a half kilograms of posho (maize flour) which is too small for them. They said that they have complained to Mengo but nothing changes and no one is willing to listen to them.”

BUGANDA STATE AT MPIGI TOWNSHIP:

At least two people were injured on Sunday when Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) enforcement team fired live bullets to disperse an angry crowd that was pelting stones in Buwama town, Mpigi District.

URA officers had come to confiscate rice bought from Tanzania by a one Abdu Mubiru, a businessman in the area.
According to the officers at the scene, about 10 tons of rice were recovered from the store.
Mr Victor Saasi Kule, the Katonga Region Police Commander identified the injured as Mr Jamada Kayemba, 32, a resident of Buwama ‘B’ and Mr Ngoma Ndayi, 43, a resident of Buwere ‘A’ in Buwama Sub-county. They all got cuts in the neck, legs and on their arms.

The Uganda Army disperses angry residents who tried to block the operation.

“The injured were hit by bullet fragments and we have rushed them to our Military Clinic to receive treatment. They will recover soon because their injuries were minor. Our doctor is monitoring them to see that they get better medication,” Mr Saasi said.
According to him, the scuffle ensued because of public misconception.
“The people in this area had never seen such an operation with many soldiers.” added Mr Saasi.

An officer who preferred anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press told Daily Monitor that they got information about this imported rice through their intelligence.


“We are taking the merchandise in our custody at URA offices in Nakawa, Kampala City,” he said.
When contacted for a comment about the incident Ms Sarah Banage, the URA Commissioner for Public Affairs said: “This is a day-to-day work by our enforcement team. We are doing our usual business of taxing food imports into this country. So, those incidences of injuring people do happen every day, every night and occurs everywhere. It is not an issue to put it in the media unless if there was death in the operation. But we shall look into this drama to find out what really caused it.”

In Summary

  • Buganda Land Board last year embarked on registration of all untitled land owners in the kingdom, a move that will see all registered persons gain full tenancy rights over the land they occupy.
  • The Katikkiro’s attacks on media houses were supported by other Lukiiko members one after another proposing that it was high time the kingdom introduced its own newspaper.

BUGANDA STATE, KAMPALA: Buganda premier, Charles Peter Mayiga has accused the press of what he called siding with people he says are enemies to the kingdom and fighting its programs pointing out Mr Male Mabirizi Kiwanuka, who recently dragged the Kabaka to court over the compulsory land registration fees.

Mr Mayiga pointed out particularly Bukedde and Kamunye local newspaper and tabloid respectively, accusing them of giving a wider coverage to the ‘lies’ by the kingdom’s opponents.

"The press especially Bukedde newspaper has done much to promote Mabirizi's interests. Even if he [Mabirizi] just coughs they will give him a full page of coverage," Mayiga told the Lukiiko Monday morning.

Buganda Land Board last year embarked on registration of all untitled land owners in the kingdom, a move that will see all registered persons gain full tenancy rights over the land they occupy.

Mr Male contends that the Kabaka’s land where subjects are living was returned to the king by central government and is public land collectively owned by the people of Buganda and the Kabaka is only holding the land in trust for his subjects.

He said defiant subjects like Mabirizi are used by people who are targeting to undermine Kabaka's authority over land.

"The press will only give us [Kingdom] four lines in the last pages when we come out to speak on important matters and explain the lies by our enemies," the Kattikiro added.

The Lukiiko convened to give an update on the events taking place with in the kingdom and also legislate on other issues affecting the subjects.

He also castigated the media houses who gave a platform to a group of youth that staged a demonstration at the Kingdom headquarters in Mengo last week accusing him of serving president Museveni’s interests instead of those of the Kabaka.

The Katikkiro’s attacks on media houses were supported by other Lukiiko members one after another proposing that it was high time the kingdom introduced its own newspaper.

Mr Mayiga’s attacks on the press come hardly a month after speaker Rebecca Kadaga castigated the media for what she called were inaccuracies and sensationalism reported by journalists intended to tarnish the image of Parliament.

HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN

BUCKINGHAM PALACE

LONDON SW1A 1AA

UNITED KINGDOM.

 

 

Your Majesty,

 

OPPRESSION OF BUGANDA KINGDOM BY A BRITISH-MADE UGANDA

 

We hereby remind you of Buganda’s historical ties with the United Kingdom referred to as Great Britain. In the nineteenth century, your grandparents came to Buganda Kingdom and were received by our grandparents with love and modesty. Kindness to strangers wasn’t a common commodity in the neighbouring cultures those days. The first British bore witness to Baganda’s decorum when they arrived in Kabaka Muteesa’s Palace at Lubaga.

            In addition to the humility and peace shown to the stranger British guests, our grandfathers allowed them freedom to interact with Baganda without holding back. We learnt your religion, language, and all the good ways in your cultures. Instead, the guests returned this kindness by haunting our Kabakas forcing Buganda Kingdom under British rule. The British tormented Kabaka Mwanga in the 1890s until Buganda Kingdom unwillingly became a British Protectorate. As Buganda came to terms with this forceful protection, their agony was amplified by the arrival of British emissaries with instructions to colonise Buganda Kingdom. The games played on Kabaka Mwanga by these British agents were notable, when they even used petty chits to press Mwanga to submit to British occupation. For example, the chit Kabaka Mwanga wrote to Mr. Jackson a British merchant of the I.B.E.A.C requesting for military aid. Captain FD Lugard shamelessly presented that chit in the Lukiiko to prove that Kabaka Mwanga had committed Buganda as a British Protectorate.

            History recorded all the atrocities our grandparents suffered under British agents. The Baganda didn’t err to show kindness to these strangers, that’s what is expected of a civilised Muganda. But for the guests to turn oppressors is the interesting part. Such behaviour is expected from uncivilised people lacking integrity. This ill behaviour led to the invasion and capture of Kabaka Mwanga by British Major Ternan and Colonel Evert. Later, an active black conspirator Apolo Kaggwa was sent to Seychelles island prison to murder his Kabaka, he was thereafter awarded the honour of Sir.

            In 1898 the British succeeded Kabaka Mwanga with a one year old infant which was a violation of our norms, not to mention creating a culture of Regents. Babies don’t ascend the throne in Buganda and there are no regents in Baganda culture. By then Buganda Kingdom was totally under British occupation after the death of Kabaka Mwanga. Buganda was faced with planned plunder by British agents and their African conspirators. The creation of the 1900 agreement yoke created false assumptions to the world that Baganda consented to this theft. Even the British government wouldn’t have enjoyed it if such a scandalous document were imposed on them. They confiscated the best parts of our land and called it crown land; the remainder was given to African conspirators who played a big role in the collapse of Buganda Kingdom. A majority of ordinary Baganda were left out, only to spare 9000 sq.miles in their name placed in custody of a thieving Uganda never to give it freely to the owners. Baganda were greatly disoriented by the new customs of land ownership odd and unfriendly. Britain was deliberately destroying Buganda Kingdom, and Baganda were helpless. It was impossible for Baganda to contest after witnessing British malicious torture and murder of their leaders in 1899, including Kabaka Mwanga.

            Even under these circumstances, when World War I started, Baganda warriors willingly fought on Britain’s side but still British cruelty on them didn’t subside.

 

       The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, United Kingdom, at the Tower of London

               17/10/2014 to remember the war dead who fought on the side of Britain

                        to win the World War I and II (1912 and1945)

 

Instead the oppressors pressed Kabaka Daudi Ccwa to bless the 1900 agreement with his signature. He refused and that led to his death by suicide. The time Kabaka Edward Muteesa II ascended the throne Buganda was in disorder. The colonialist barred the Bataka from performing rituals on Kabaka Muteesa II and ordered them to stop at church. These are times when World War II broke out in mid 1940s. Proudly Baganda warriors again fought on Britain’s side and rescued them from shame. As reward, these Baganda World War heroes received nothing but empty promises of land which were never honoured; only to return home with pride of wearing boots and European costumes.

            After World War II, British governors annoyed Baganda when they openly despised Kiganda culture leading to “Bataka bu” uprisings in late 1940s. Kabaka Edward Muteesa II reminded the British of how they’d come to Buganda as guests, so he was ready to bid them goodbye. He also urged them to cease all agreements they had with Buganda for they were void because as guests, it was not in order to dictate conditions to their hosts. The result was Kabaka Muteesa’s exile in 1953 by Governor Sir Andrew Cohen, to Britain. The Baganda declared independence in 1959, which forced the British to employ Rod Muster to stop Buganda’s autonomy.

            Following these historical facts, we Baganda don’t believe Britain has Buganda’s Kingdom interests at heart as a friend we amorously received. We can’t define the kind of people you are, to plan wickedness for people who loved and respected you, and fought your battles with dignity! Look at the 1962 independence, you created a mask called Uganda in which you hid to exact your goals on Buganda. The 1962 game was to impose a false nation Uganda on Baganda and forcibly plant it on Buganda land. It was a new yoke replacing the 1900 agreement.

            We’re the grandchildren of those Baganda whose goodness you besmirched. The purpose of this letter is to inform Her Majesty of our dissatisfactions and intention to open up a case against her government. The statement is that; the colonial British government imposed a devious Uganda government on Buganda’s land without consent of Baganda. To date the British government nourishes, supports and sponsors the existence of this Uganda empowering it with means to:

  •          keep Buganda Kingdom under occupation to prevent Baganda from freely exercising their tradition so the young are kept from learning their autonomy
  •          keep Baganda in abject poverty so they can’t compete financially to agitate for their natural human rights
  •          destroy ancient marks of Buganda Kingdom structures to break Baganda’s bondage with their culture. Also to populate Buganda with foreigners of strange cultures to suppress Kiganda norms. We’ve experienced torching of our shrines and cultural sites with UNESCO in the background
  •          disperse Baganda to foreign countries (exile) and replace them with foreigners to deny them their natural birthright on Buganda land

 

The British connivance with Uganda against Buganda is evident in the help they extend in light of atrocities the Ugandan government commit on her people. Regime change in Uganda is characterised by reckless murders of civilians by a sitting or coming ruler. Britain knows all this but she never condemns Uganda. She instead gives protection to ousted dictators then forwards a menu of instructions to a new one. Just recently the British government influenced and aided in the enactment of ridiculous bills offensive to our cultures. Once they even pledged a grant of £200m (two hundred million pounds) to Uganda upon passing a controversial land bill to facilitate squatters in Buganda to buy its land from the rightful Baganda landlords.

            The British government should cease shows of unconcern in matters of her Uganda creation. We pray that Britain is polite enough to pronounce Uganda’s illegal existence on Buganda land, and call upon Uganda government to stop its occupation of Buganda Kingdom. Below is evidence proving Uganda’s illegal existence in Buganda since its inception.

  1.     Buganda Kingdom wasn’t a colony but a British Protectorate. It was completely irrelevant to talk about “giving independence”. Buganda didn’t require freedom from the British, because they were here on strictly security terms. Buganda had the freedom. Absurdly, the protector guarding our door turned master of our home and wickedly denied us the kindness we gave her. Only to look down on us as slaves not fit to govern ourselves, so Uganda was created to govern autonomous Buganda Kingdom that has existed since times immemorial.
  2.     In the 1962 transfer of power from colonial British government to newborn Uganda, it was inconsiderate of an experienced British government to rely on the reasoning of a few inexperienced individuals. In such a situation a rational mind is expected to opt for a general ballot. The public (individual Baganda) weren’t consulted to consent submission to Uganda’s rule. Britain and Uganda should’ve organised a referendum. That was possible then before the coming of vote-rigging mores, but there’s no evidence to that effect. It was a syndicate.
  3.     It was unfortunate of an experienced country as Britain to miss out a fact that Buganda was an established self-sufficient nation which couldn’t be governed by uncultured people. Buganda Kingdom has all credentials of a nation, well as Uganda has none. Institutions that qualify as nations must have people, a language, geographical location and a culture to guide them.
  4.     Britain behaved treacherously when she claimed to end all agreements with Buganda but then on the fateful day, she gambled creating a third party (Uganda) and instead ended agreements with that. This was broad daylight dishonesty to give Buganda’s authority to an abrupt creation. Buganda’s military power was transferred to this third party so Buganda was helpless to contest this abuse. It was quite shameful of Britain and Uganda to stage independence since they had no agreement to be ended between them.
  5.     Even if the project “Uganda creation” and its 1962 agreement were to be upheld as true and authentic, it was Uganda itself with Britain that conspired to destroy their own project agreement in 1966. Their plan was to create a precedent to extend their occupation scheme in Buganda Kingdom to continue plundering its resources. Upon the 1966 May, 24th incident, Britain and Uganda don’t have even a legitimate reason to present in defence that Uganda government has genuine mandate to function on Buganda soil or the dignity to govern Buganda Kingdom.

 

We, the Council of Grandchildren of Baganda Clan Elders, therefore seek Her Majesty’s audience to state our grievances in earnest. We want Her Majesty to relieve Buganda Kingdom of the burden her government imposed on us. Our fathers simplified this in 1966 when they held a Lukiiko and passed resolution that Uganda removes its unlawful government from Buganda soil within a period not exceeding fourteen (14) days, or else they “Buganda Kingdom” were to file a case against Uganda for illegal occupation and trespass on Buganda’s land.

Ever since then, Buganda Kingdom has undergone a chain of incessant wars and oppression of regimes planned and supported by Britain. Baganda have lived in fear and panic to date without ability to organise to put into force the case promised by those great Baganda elders back in 1966. We now have the ability and thus pray that the British government announces a public declaration that the government of Uganda is illegal unlawful and should cease its occupation on Buganda land.

 

Yours,

 ..............................................

Embeera y’abakungu e Mmengo okulangirira ebyaama mu kisenge kya Kabaka mu mpapula z’amawulire

Obuganda buli mu katyaabaga olw’abalabe baabwo okutandika okufuuwa eminyaalika nga bateeka ebifaananyi mu mawulire era nga balangirira omwaana JB Walusimbi gweyabatiza mbu Ssemakookiro Richard. Okubaawo kwa Ssemakookiro Richard n’obutuufubwe bibuusibwa buusibwa kubanga abaabitandikawo babbi balulango abataswaala, abalina obusobozi okukola kyonna ekisoboka okukuuma omunyago gwaabwe gwe banyaga e Buganda. Ekisooka baasobya obuwangwa bw’olulyo olulangira ne balingiza mu kisenge kya Kabaka ate ne bagenda nga bawowoggana n’ebyobuwemu, mbu Kabaka yazadde omwaana.

JB Walusimbi bweyasooka okulerembuka n’ebya Kabaka okuzaala Ssemakookiro, twamusaba okuleeta omulangira Ssemakookiro gweyali ayogerako ne nyina. Ekiswaaza ennyo, teyasobola kukolako yadde n’ekimu ku bye twamusaba. Omulangira Ssemakookiro Richard yabula era ne nyina naabula. Kyokka tw’atandika kulaba bya mbyoone ebisinga okuswaaza Kabaka. Olwo nga bannaffe batandise okubuukira buli mukazi mbu yeyazaala omwaana Ssemakookiro, era n’abamu baatuuka n’okuteeka emisango mu mbuga z’amateeka era ne baliyirirwa. Okukkakkana nga omukulu w’ekitongole ky’amawulire kinnanyini kufulumya bya buseegu nga yeetondedde Obuganda mbu bumusonyiwe ebya Ssemakookiro Richard. Ensi yonna yakakasa nti ddala JB Walusimbi ne babbi banne tewali kiyinza kubalemerera kukola ne bwekiba kya muzizo mu Buwangwa n’eNnono ya Buganda singa kibeera kikwaatagana na kufuna nsimbi.

Tulina essuubi ddene nyo nti okulangirira Ssemakookiro Richard, JB Walusimbi ne banne kwe baakola tekwaali kwa bweewussa, nti ddala baakikola tebakimanyi. Wabula baakikola bakimanyi bulungi nga bagenderera okuddamu akakodyo ba Apolo Kaggwa, Zakariya Kisingiri, Stansilas Mugwanya n’abazungu kebaakola Obuganda okusikiza Kabaka Mwanga II ebbujje ely’emyeezi ekumi n’ebiri (12). Abakungu bano abaali mu lukiiko lwa Buganda nga bayambibwaako abazungu, baawamba Kabaka Mwanga nga be bamusalirawo kyokka nga balaga Obuganda mbu Kabaka y’alagira. Kabaka Mwanga  bweyabatebuka n’addukira e Mwanza mu Tanzania, olwo ne bategeka okumutta. Katikkiro Apolo Kaggwa yakuba Kabakawe Kabaka Mwanga ekyaasi mu nsingo n’amuttirawo. Olwo ababbi bano ne bafuna obuweerero nga Kabaka eyali abatiisa avuddewo, era ne bamusikiza ebbujje.

JB Walusimbi ne banne tebalina njawulo ne ba kalibutemu abaali bakulemberwa Apolo Kaggwa, Kisingiri ne Mugwanya. Eky’enjawulo ky’oyinza okulaga nti bali (Kaggwa ne banne) baalina omulangira Ccwa omwaana wa Kabaka Mwanga yennyini ng’amanyiddwa. Bano ba JB Walusimbi tebalina mulangira bwaatyo amanyiddwa ng’Obuganda bumukakasa. Okuziba ekituli kino, balina okuyiiyaawo omulangira bwaatyo era bamwoolesebamukuutire akadingidi Abaganda basobole okumumanyiiza amaaso n’okumanyiira nti omuntu gyaali. Kale abaseegu bano bagende okutandika okusobya obuwangwa nga tewali abakugira. Olwo Abaganda baleme okuwakanya omulangira waabwe singa ekiseera kituuka ng’Obuganda bw’etaaga Kabaka.

Obuganda mulina okw’ekaabirako kubanga Kabaka wammwe Muwenda Mutebi ali mulusuubo. JB Walusimbi ne banne bamaze okumutemerera akakubo k’okufa omutezi k’alimira enkwaale. Okulanga Ssemakookiro Richard tekikolebwa lwabutamanya oba bujoozi, wabula kikolebwa okutegeka Abaganda baleme okutegeera abatemu bano mu kufa kwa Kabaka waabwe.

Tetuwakanya kubeerayo kwa Ssemakookiro, wabula embeera ey’etoolodde obuzaalebwe eriko ebibuuzo bingi ebigaanye okwaanukulwa mu bugenderevu. Ssekawuka kaali kakulumye… bw’okalaba okadduka. Enfa ya Kabaka Mwanga ne ba Katikkirobe twaagiraba era tutandise okulaba ng’ekomawo ku Kabaka Muwenda Mutebi ne ba Katikkirobe. Singa Kabaka Mutebi afa mukaco kano, tewali kubuusabuusa JB Walusimbi ne banne balina okutunyonnyola ebintu bingi ddala. Ffe tulaba nga kaakano bali mu nteekateeka yakutta Kabaka waffe.

Ekirala ne bwe batta Kabaka Muwenda Mutebi, balina okukimanya nti ab’olukiiko omuli katikkiro, abaami n’abakungu tebalina webeetabira mu mikolo gya buwangwa egileetaegikola oba egiteekako Kabaka e Buganda.

Ekisooka bonna ababeera mu lukiiko lwa Kabaka oluyitibwa olukiiko lwa Buganda babeera basiigebe, okuva kukatikkiro, Kaggo, abakyaala okutuuka ku bambowa n’abagalagala. Kabaka waabwe bw’akisa omukono bonnabagenda naye, olwo ne bafuuka basiige mu masiroge. Mu bukulembeze bwa Buganda obw’obuwangwa abo babeera basiige ba Kabaka abuze (omufu). Mu Buwangwa n’eNnono y’olulyo olulangira e Buganda, abafutebagattibwa mu balamu. Abasiige ba Kabaka eyazaama tebalina we beetabira mu bukulembeze bwa Kabaka omulamu, abo babeera bakulembeze mu masiro ga Kabaka waabwe. Kabaka omuggya alonda olukiikolwe nga luggya. Katikkiro wa Ssekabaka mu masiro okubeera katikkiro wa Kabaka omulamu kibeera kya nsobi, kya muzizo mu Buwangwa bwa Buganda.

Oky’okubiri ne bwe batta Kabaka Muwenda Mutebi mbu baleete Ssemakookiro Richard mbu olwo bo babeere bakuzanga bwe kyaali ku ba Apolo Kaggwa, Kisingiri ne Mugwanya; ekyo tekirina wekisangibwa mu buwangwa bwa Buganda. Ekigambo bakuza/mukuza tekirina nnono mu lulimi oluganda, mbu bano bakuza ba baana!!! Ekyo abazungu be baakileeta nekiyambako ba Apolo Kaggwa okubanguyiza omulimu gw’okuzisa obuwangwa bwa Buganda gwe baaliko. E Buganda ffenna tuli baluganda era tekiyinza kuwulikika mu lumbe mbu abaana b’omugenzi balondeddwa abakuza oba omukuza. Abaana bagabanibwa bassengaabwe, bakitaabwe, bajjajjaabwe oba ab’oluganda, era basigala bayita taata, maama, kojja, senga, jjajja n’abalala.

Kabaka w’obwakabaka bwa Buganda tasobola kubeera na bakuza ab’ekika kyokka kababeere ba lulyo olulangira. Yadde abataka abakulu b’obusolya tebasobola kubeera bakuza ba Kabaka kubanga abeera mukulu okusinga Omuganda yenna n’abataka abakulu b’obusolya nga mwebali. Abalangira tebasobola kubeera bakuza kubanga bonna bali muttuluba lya Kabaka, kale okubeera abakuza babeera batudde ku Nnamulondo nga tewali asobola kubajjako. Kabaka tabeera muto era takuzibwa. Obuwangwa busigalawo nti Nyina (Namasole) yemuntu asinga okumubeera kulusegere, kale mmwe abalowooleza mu kukuza Kabaka, Namasole ne banyina (bakojja ba Kabaka) be balina obuvunaanyizibwa obwo mu buwangwa bwa Buganda. Eky’ennaku nti obukojja bwa Ssemakookiro bw’afuuka bwamatankane nga mpale z’abaseveni.

Emitendera gy’omulangira okulya Obwakabaka Kabaka bw’akisa omukono, katikkirowe ategeeza bajjajjaabe abataka abakulu b’obusolya bw’ebika bya Buganda nti, ‘omuliro guzikidde mu lubiri.’ Olwo abataka ne batuma omutaka Ndugwa omukulu ow’akasolya k’ekika ky’Olugave okubikira olukiiko lw’abalangira abakulu b’emituba, era abeera ne muzzukuluwe omusiige Kasujju Lubinga. Abataka okutuma omutaka Ndugwa mu lulyo olulangira nga Mujaguzo empya eri mu kuleegebwa. Omutaka Ndugwa olumala okubikira olukiiko lw’abalangira, alekawo omusiige Kasujju Lubinga. Olukiiko lw’Abalangira luno lwe luwa Kasujju Lubinga emitendera gy’abalangira baateekwa okukuumira mu lukomera okutuusa ng’Obuganda (olukiiko lw’abataka abakulu b’obusolya bw’ebika) bumaze okusumika n’okutuuza Kabaka waabwo ku Nnamulondo yaabwe, ng’era Mujaguzo evuga.

Ng’abalangira b’emitendera egilondebwaamu omulangira anaabikka akabugo bamaze okuku%u014Banyizibwa mu lugo mu bukuumi bwa Kasujju Lubinga, abalangira abakulu b’emituba mu lulyo olulangira batuula mu lukiiko lwabwe bokka. Olwo ne bateesa ku mulangira omutuufu okuweebwaayo (okusiigibwa) mu bataka e Buganda okutuula ku Nnamulondo. Olukiiko lw’abalangira abakulu b’emituba bwe lusalawo omulangira omutuufu, olwo nga balagira Kasujju Lubinga okubikkisa omulangira oyo akabugo. Omulangira ng’abikka akabugo si kyankiso era wabeerawo abajulizi ku mitendera egy’enjawulo. Embeera y’emikolo gy’obuwangwa n’okusalawo kw’enkiiko mu mitendera gino yevaako okuloberaKabaka wa Buganda okulaama oba okukola ekiraamo.

Omukolo gw’okubikka nga guwedde, Kasujju Lubinga aleeta omulangira oyo ow’ensonga mu lukiiko lw’abalangira abakulu b’emituba era ebibye bikoma awo. Jjajja omulangira omukulu w’omutuba omusibuka omulangira ow’ensonga asumika muzzukuluwe ekifundikwa ekiberyeberye. Ekifundikwa kino kye kifuula omulangira oyo ow’omutuba. Kino kye kifundikwa ekimuwa obuyinza okutandikawo emituba egigye (ensibukoye). Era okugenda okuweerezebwa mu bataka e Buganda ng’omulangira oyo amaze okujjuzibwa nga mukulu wa mutuba.

Jjajja omulangira omukulu w’omutuba akwaata muzzukuluwe omulangira ow’ensonga n’amutwaala mu lukiiko lw’abataka abakulu b’obusolya bw’ebika bya Buganda n’amwanjulayo nti ye mulangira abaweereddwa okuva mu lulyo olulangira. Abalangira bombi, jjajja ow’omutuba ne muzzukuluwe tebatuula. Omutaka Mugema omukulu w’ekika ky’eNkima asumika omulangira ow’ensonga ekifundikwa eky’okubiri okwongereza ku ky’abalangira, okukakasa nti olukiiko lw’abataka abakulu b’obusolya bakkiriza omulangira oyo ow’ensonga abaweereddwa okubeera Ssabataka waabwe. Omutaka Mugema ow’ekika ky’eNkima yaatuuza omulangira ku Nnamulondo mu lukiiko luno olw’abataka abakulu b’obusolya, olwo n’alagira Mujaguzo okuvugira Ssabataka. Omulangira ow’omutuba afuluma bufulumi naddayo mu lulyo olulangira, n’ategeeza olukiiko lw’abalangira abakulu b’emituba nti ‘Beene gyaali ku Nnamulondo’ oba ‘nti omuliro gukoledde e Buganda’.

Kabaka omuggya ng’ayita mu nkola y’obukulembeze bwa Buganda ey’obuwangwa, alonda olukiikolwe buggya okuva ku Katikkiroomulamuziomuwanika okutuuka ku mwaami ow’ekyaalo. Olukiiko lwa Kabaka eyabuze teruddamu kuweebwa buvunaanyizibwa mu Lukiiko lwa Buganda. Era Kabaka omulamu tabalumbayo mu masiro kubawa biragiro, ago gabeera gafuuse masiro mu lulyo olulangira ng’era g’amuzizo gyaali. Katikkiro wa Ssekabaka mu masiro talamula wa Kabaka omulamu ku Nnamulondo, era bwegutyo n’owomulamu talamula mu masiro. Kakibeere nti Kabaka yabuzeggulo, leero obuwangwa n’ennono bilagira nti abeera afuuse Ssekabaka ng’era olubiri lwe lufuuse amasiro, abantu b’olukiikolwe bafuuse basiige be mu masiro ge.

Ekikulu kiri nti abalangira abakulu b’emituba tebalina kye bamanyi ku Ssemakookiro Richard abakungu gwe beesibyeeko okulaalaasa mu mawulire. Kaakano abalangira bano balisobola batya n’okuleeta elinnya lya Ssemakookiro mu lukiiko lwabwe olusalawo omulangira omutuufu okubikka akabugo? Tewali mumbejja yadde omulangira n’omu ow’ensonga amanyi mayitire ga Ssemakookiro Richard. Wabula tumuwulira mu Bulange mu ba katikkiro n’abakungu ne mu mpapula z’amawulire.

The social media in Uganda has again been blocked by the government of the Republic of Uganda so that the self-imposed President can be seen to take over the government for the fifth time.

 

 

 

The interested colonialists (Europeans and Americans) congratulating the long serving President of Uganda over his victory in the just concluded democratic elections of 2016

 

What started as a social media rumour became a reality when service providers announced that they had been directed by Uganda Communications Commission to shut down social media for the second time in three months.

The first social media shutdown of mainly facebook and twitter was in February ahead of the general elections while the May shutdown was ahead of President Museveni’s swearing for a 5th elective term.

Ironically the service providers used social media to announce the shutdown.

“Dear Customers, as per UCC directive Social media has been temporarily blocked however all our other services are available. We regret any inconveniences cause”, Airtel Uganda one of the top telecommunications and service provider wrote on their facebook wall.

MTN Uganda on the other hand announced:

“MTN Uganda wishes to inform its esteemed customers that in line with the requirement of its license specifically article 7.4 that requires MTN to provide assistance to government in the event of an emergency or crisis related to National Security, the Uganda Communications Commission has issued a directive to shut down all social media platforms immediately until otherwise advised by government. The UCC and other competent government agencies will provide further clarity on the reasons for this directive”.

Government believes opposition leaders, most of whom are under house arrest will use social media to mobilise people to demonstrate against Museveni's swearing in at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds. The swearing in is attended by several African presidents including those from South Sudan, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Chad, Niger, Sudan, Tanzania,  South Africa among others.

Access to the social media is currently only possible via Virtual Private Networks (VPN) which masks the users location and circumvents the blockage. During the February shutdown, users in Uganda downloaded an unprecedented over 5 million VPNs.

There was drama at Christ the King Church in Kampala today afternoon after Police attempted to block the routine lunch-time mass under the guise that it would interfere with traffic.
 
Police deployed around church located along Colville street after rumours spread that opposition political party, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leaders led by Dr Kizza Besigye were on their way to attend prayers at the church ahead of his ‘swearing in’ as the ‘people's president’. Besigye managed to beat a 24-hour police surveillance, surprising security when pictures of him waving to his supporters in downtown Kampala went viral on social media.
 
Police rushed to Christ the King church and officers started screening all those who turned up for the prayers but they were immediately stopped by the church leaders led by Monsignor Gerald Kalumba, the Parish Priest of the church.

He explained to the officers led by Andrew Kaggwa, the Kampala South Regional Police Commander (RPC), that the church has been holding the lunch-time prayers even before deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma issued a ban on the FDC defiance campaign that included weekly Tuesday prayers.
 
He said attempts by Police to block the prayers ‘would go against God’. Despite the fact that Police retreated from the church, Monsignor Kalumba expressed his apparent disgust.

Addressing the congregation moments later, Kalumba said they will not stop prayers at the church just because of an order from court or police, saying God is above everything.

"They are not interested in the church but they will be interested in destroying the church. Let us pray for ourselves, we should have a different Uganda…where there is truth there is no need of panicking, therefore be alert. You are not here for anything else but for prayer. I know there are some security people in this church because they came to see me and I told them we come here for prayer and nothing else. So don’t be nervous, we are here for prayer”, Kalumba told the Catholic faithfuls.

Kalumba said during the swearing in of President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday they will only hold the early morning prayers. None of the FDC party leaders showed up at the church for the prayers as had been rumored. Museveni will be sworn as Uganda president for a fifth elective term having been declared winner of the controversial February general elections by the Electoral Commission.

Meanwhile, police also deployed heavily at Rock International Ministries, which is led by Pastor Happy David Ngabo who shot to the limelight for leading the weekly prayers at the FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi.
 
Deputy police spokesperson, Polly Namaye said that they deployed at the church on suspicion that the party supporter would sneak into the church as part of the banned defiance campaigns.

FDC, later released a suspicious video of the what they called Besigye's swearing in as the people's president. The video appeared to have been produced earlier and pieced together with earlier footage from a different event.

 

Nb

Indeed for the Church the truth of the matter is Christ. Dr Besigye would never come to swear in the Church of Uganda. It is not the church of Christ that elected him. The doctor has all his citizens right to go to KOLOLO, NAKIVUBO or in the BUSH OF THE LUWEERO TRIANGLE,  when realesed and stand up there and swear to those who elected him that he will keep them, represent them and govern them. Really it is up to Dr Besigye's electorate not any one else, to do what they can about their problem.

State House does not pay rent for property belonging to the National Housing and Construction Company which it occupies, a parliamentary committee has established.

 

The property, located on Plot 1, Kyaggwe road in Kampala, houses the Nakasero state lodge. While responding to queries raised in the 2010/11 auditor general’s report last week, Felix Okoboi, the outgoing chief executive officer of National Housing, failed to show Parliament’s committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises a tenancy agreement signed with State House.

 

Describing State House as a “stubborn tenant”, Okoboi, who has since given notice of intent to resign for “personal reasons”, said the company instead resolved to “withhold dividend due to government amounting to Shs 2.11 billion” to offset the rent arrears from State House and the ministry of Defence.

 

That response prompted the committee chairman, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda (Kyadondo East, FDC) , to halt proceedings, saying they needed further explanation on the matter before proceeding with other queries from the auditor general’s report.

 

“State House is a tenant of National Housing, but they don’t have any arrangement they entered into and National Housing doesn’t collect any fee from them,” Ssemujju said. “It appears that State House does not pay for tenancy. Can you imagine Plot 1 Kyaggwe road being occupied by State House for free?”

 

Ssemujju said the committee would ask State House “to get some discipline” because the president cannot occupy National Housing property without paying its rent while the same company persecutes other illegal occupants of its property.

Akukkulumira,  omubaka Ssebuliba Mutumba  nti agenda atalaaga  Buganda ng’atondatondawo obubondo obutali mu mateeka.

“Ng’enda kuwandiikira buli ttabi lya DP   nga nnung’amya ekiteekeddwa okukolebwa kubanga waliwo abakola emirimu gy’ekibiina nga tebagoberera mateeka,” Mao bwe yagambye.

 Mutumba ye mumyuka wa Pulezidenti wa DP atwala Buganda.  Yategeezezza nti tewali kintu kyanjawulo ky'akola  Mao ky'atamanyi. Agamba nti omulimu ogw’okukunga bammemba ba DP mu Buganda yagutandika mu  November wa 2013 era Mao akimanyiiko.

Deputy {Diso}(District Internal Security Officer) in Uganda, Kasese, has been injured and robbed:

By ENID NINSIIMA

Posted  Tuesday, June 2  2015
 
 

Kasese.

Kasese District are investigating circumstances under which the deputy District Internal Security Officer was attacked and robbed of his belongings.
The incident occurred last week as Mr Emmanuel Bagenda was returning home to Kilembe Quarters from Kampala.
He was beaten by thugs before they robbed him at about 1am. 
Security sources said Mr Bagenda was attacked at the junction leading to St Paul’s Health Centre just a few metres from residence where they had just been dropped by a motorcycle.
The officer in charge of criminal investigations, Mr Richard Ssuna, said: “I have no comment about that, but what I know he is at his place of work since he came here on Tuesday morning but if you want more about him, call his phone,” Mr Ssuna said. 
Efforts to reach Mr Bagenda were futile as his phone was switched off by press time.
According to the statement he made at police, Mr Bagenda said he was attacked by unknown people at his gate who robbed him of a wallet, Shs1.2 million and his wife’s handbag.
The area councillor, Mr Medard Muramuzi, who participated in the rescue, said the intelligence officer was hit on the face.

Peers in the British House of Lords are pocketing thousands of pounds in allowances without ever contributing to this House of Lords debates.

1 January 2016
 

Lord  Hanningfield

 

 

 

Hundreds of thousands of pounds in tax-free allowances were paid out during 2015 to peers who went through the entire year without ever contributing to debates in the House of Lords chamber, an analysis by The Independent has found.

The public record reveals that 117 men and women who are still listed as member of the House of Lords – one in seven of the total – never spoke in the main Lords chamber in the past year.

They included at least 49 who signed the register and claimed the £300 daily attendance allowance, with some pocketing an average of more than £4,000 a month.

Although they may have taken part in committees or other work of the House, the low level of their involvement in debates will add to calls for a radical overhaul of the upper chamber.

The findings come at a time when David Cameron is planning to limit the powers of peers who actually do the work of scrutinising legislation, following his annoyance at them holding up the Government’s plan to cut tax credits.

While the Prime Minister also plans to cut down the number of MPs in the more active House of Commons, the Lords has been allowed to swell to 822 members – making it one of the world’s largest legislative bodies.

The Aberdeen North MP Kirsty Blackman, spokeswoman on the House of Lords for the SNP – which does not take any seats in the Lords on principle – said: “This is not the way to run a modern democracy. It’s not the way the country should be run. We have got all these people who are stuck there forever.”

The £300-a-day tax free allowance is supposed to be claimed only by peers who take part in the work of the House of Lords, and not by those who simply turn up to use its facilities, such as the free parking and subsidised bars and dining rooms.

The records for the first half of 2015 show that dozens of peers visited the Lords but did not claim. Some of those who did not speak in the chamber participate in other ways, either helping to organise House of Lords business or sitting on committees.

Others claim that age and infirmity makes it hard for them to participate, but argue that their past service entitles them to continue their membership.

Lord Taylor of Blackburn, an 86-year-old former Labour councillor, was one of the first peers ever to have his membership suspended after he was caught in a newspaper sting in 2009 apparently agreeing to be paid to ask questions. He pleaded then that he was “easily confused”. During six months in 2015 he claimed £29,100 in tax free allowances, though he did not speak in the chamber and according to the official record he has not sat on a committee since 2001.

He said: “I have spoken to ministers behind the scenes during the year. I have attended quite regularly. I have voted quite regularly.

“I’m doing what I was asked to do when I went in the Lords 38 years ago, and that is speak on those things I hope I could contribute to and give advice to ministers.”

He added: “Sometimes empty vessels make more sound.”

Lord Borrie, the 84-year-old former head of the Advertising Standards Authority, claimed £21,300 in six months, though he did not speak in the main chamber all year, and is not listed as having been on a Lords committee for four years.

He said that illness kept him away from the Lords during the second half of the year. He added: “I have been speaking less, but that doesn’t mean I’m not doing anything.

“I have been keeping up with new legislation, especially matters that interest me – the competition field, civil rights and so on. I would like to return to the House of Lords in the near future, but I am also contemplating retirement.”

Lord Davies of Coity, the 80-year-old former head of the shopworkers’ union Usdaw, claimed £14,700 in six months, plus more than £7,000 towards the cost of travelling to and from his home in Cheshire. He served on the Lords ecclesiastical committee for 11 years, until March 2015.

He said: “I don’t suppose I did speak. I didn’t do it much because I have been there 20 years and whether I will go again I don’t know. I have done a lot of speaking over the years. I haven’t been at all since September because I have got a bad back.”

During the past year, several well known peers including Lord Ashcroft and the late Baron (Geoffrey) Howe made use of legislation passed in 2014 which for the first time enables members to retire from the House of Lords.

Retirement is purely voluntary. There is no upper age limit for membership. Until his death, aged 96, just over week ago, Lord Ezra, the former chairman of the National Coal Board, was the oldest serving peer. He signed the attendance register in June, though did not claim the £300 a day allowance.

Two dozen peers, including two members of the Sainsbury family, did not sign the register at all during the first half of 2015. In local government, a councillor who fails to show up for six months is automatically disqualified, but that rule does not apply to peers.

Deserving of office? Rarely heard peers in the House of Lords

Lord Hanningfield

The ex-Tory peer is the most notorious abuser of Lords’ privileges, jailed in 2011 for fiddling his expenses, and suspended in 2014 for claiming an allowance after doing no work. After his suspension ended in May, he received £3,600 in allowances in three months.

Lord Taylor of Warwick

After serving a prison sentence in 2011 for fiddling his expenses, Lord Taylor defied a public plea from a fellow Tory peer, Michael Dobbs, not to return to the Lords. He asked many written questions, but very rarely speaks, though he broke an almost two-year silence just before Christmas. In the first half of 2015, he claimed £22,200 attendance allowance.

Baroness Falkender

In June 1974, the Prime Minister Harold Wilson awarded his political secretary, then known as Marcia Williams, a life peerage. She has never made a speech in the Lords chamber in 41 years, but attends sometimes. In May, she claimed a £300 attendance allowance.

Lord Carrington

The 96-year-old former Foreign Secretary is the longest-serving member of the Lords, having inherited a seat in 1941. He is no longer active, and does not claim the daily allowance, but signed the register in February and in June.

Lord Snowdon

The former photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones became the Earl of Snowdon when he married the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, in 1960. They were divorced in 1978, but he remains a member of the House of Lords, though he last spoke there in 2000.

Lord Archer

The thriller writer, Jeffrey Archer, has not spoken in the Lords since his prison sentence for perjury in 2001, but still qualifies as a member. He signed the attendance register in May, but did not claim the allowance.

Crosby Honour criticised by Tory MP

A Tory MP has condemned David Cameron’s decision to hand his election strategist Lynton Crosby a knighthood for “political service”.

Mark Garnier, MP for Wyre Forest, accepted that the Australian had done an “extraordinarily good job” in guiding the Conservatives to an unexpected election triumph in May, but said that he sympathised with those criticising the decision to award him in the New Year’s Honours list.

Mr Crosby, dubbed the “Wizard of Oz”, was brought into Downing Street by Mr Cameron in 2012 after helping Boris Johnson win successive mayoral elections in London and managing victories in his homeland. Mr Garnier, an opponent of handing out honours to politicians, told Radio 4’s Today: “Is it right to give a knighthood to a political campaigner? I’m probably sympathetic with those people who think it is a bad idea.”
