Yoweri Museveni

Media in Uganda has been awash with a scandal involving President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s younger brother and a woman said to be his side chick and also a senior staff at the Ugandan State House.

According to a story published by the country’s main online publication – New Vision, State House had been reported to be behind the plot to defrauded the family of late Bishop Shalita of their land with the help of Museveni’s brother Shadrach Kaguta Nzeire.

A later publication, however clarified that State House was not in anyway behind the plot.

“Our core investigations unearthing the orchestrated plans to grab the late Bishop Shalita’s land in Kiruhura has exonerated State House whose reputation had been brought to near shame. One State House Staff has meticulously, for a long time managed to make different bodies of Government knock heads over a scandal involving a few members of the first family attempting to steal Bishop Shalita’s land at Ekimomo, Kyeera, Kayonza, Kikatsi in Kiruhura district.”reads the story.

One Ndyomugyenyi Sandra, it is reported has been in a secret marital affair with the Kaguta brother who often prefers calling himself “Kaguta”, to cunningly evoke his relationship with H. E The President and intimidate unknowing victims of his trade.

Some of the Government officials who have talked to our reporter in confidence allude to the inconvenience of the selfish behavior of the duo. Officials have been intimidated almost to submission.

“The trick stars alleging the President sends them to relay his State House directives aggressively on a daily basis coerce the officials to effect the unwritten directives of the President,” one senior Government official lamented.
In a recent meeting held under the auspices of Ministry of Lands at the Hearing of the Bishop Shalita and Kajundira fraud title scam, a one Grace Majoro rebuffed Sandra in public putting her on the back foot when Grace said “” State House does not make verbal orders, they always  make formal written communications.”

Sandra was able to save her face by staging a walkout.
Deep findings revealed that the lady purporting to be dragging State House into the 4 illegal title woes, the said Sandra Ndyomugenyi is indeed acting on her own.
This is not the first time Ndyomugyenyi is facing ‘fire’ and being distanced by State House.

Last year the Presidential Press Secretary released a statement rubbishing a letter signed by Ndyomugyenyi on behalf of the President’s Private Secretary Dr Kenneth Omona.

This was in a matter involving an allegation of non-payment to cyber security experts where Sandra Ndyomugyenyi, purportedly wrote on behalf of the Principal Private Secretary to H.E the President without authorization, in reference to a complaint about Non-Payment for work done by Cyber Security Experts.

“We would like to assure the general public to totally disregard the letter and its contents for it is baseless, false and should be treated with the full contempt it deserves,” PPU said in a statement dated 28th October, 2022.

Documentary Evidence

Highly confidential documents we have seen reveal that Ndyomugyenyi is intimately working to promote the interests of Nzaire Nuwomugisha Sedrack, alias Kaguta, President Museveni’s younger brother who is also the NRM Chairperson of Kiruhura District where the purported illegal four titles were planned from.

Conflict Of Interest Unearthed.

Sandra Ndyomugenyi works as a Legal aide in State House, where she is supposed to mediate neutrally when issues regarding conflict resolution are brought before the Fountain of Honor.

For starters, the lawyers MNA (Mpamizo, Nabaasa & Akineza Advocates) representing the Christopher Kajundira, (the alleged grabbers of the late Bishop Shalita land) are the same lawyers working for Sandra Ndyomugenyi  in her  other private matters which documents show she has joint interests with Nzaire.

Top State House officials have revealed to us in confidence that State House as headed by H.E President Museveni is not taking any sides in the land wrangle that has lasted for over 30 years and more so when Courts have already pronounced themselves over the matter.

We can reveal that Sandra Ndyomugyenyi in an affidavit application in support of a Caveat of a property allocated jointly to her and Nzaire by the Departed Asians Property  Custodian Board, located on Plot 2 Fort Road LRV 118 Folio 8, located at Old Kampala,
Kampala, she uses the same lawyers representing the late Kajundira family, as her lawyers in the matter. Evidently this was not planned by State House.

Fictitious Property Allocation Busted

On October 12 2021, the Departed Asians Property Custodian Board issued a temporary allocation of a property on Plot 2 Fort Road LRV 118 Folio 8 Kampala (See letter below) to Sandra Ndyomugenyi and Nzaire Nuwomugisha Sedrack.

This was in response to her application of 15 Sept 2021. Surprisingly, DAPCB allocated the property in just one month!
The allocation letter was signed by Bizibu George William the Executive Director DAPCB. (look out for the details in one of our publications )

Who is Nzaire in the Illegal title scam

An Incontrovertible source has revealed to our reporter, how Nzaire has been the architect of the creation of the 4 illegal titles over land occupied and owned by Bishop Shalita’s family and realtives. Thescam was processed through the Kiruhura Land Board.  Nzaire is Chairman of the ruling party in the same District.

It has been revealed that Nzaire’s interest goes beyond the obvious marriage relationship with the Kajundira’s, a plot to buy the land from Kajundira’s after the battle with the Family and relatives of Bishop Shalita has already been mooted between Nzaire, and one other younger Kaguta brother of his.

Blood Relationship 

It is now a well-confirmed fact that Nzaire Kaguta is related through marriage to the family of Kajundira and therefore, he must have found it inevitably strategic to use his powers in Kiruhura to perfect the crime with the creation of the 4 illegal titles on Block 90 Plot 12 in 2022, and have them mounted on top of the old existing Survey of Bishop Shalita of 2005, with the assurance of protection from his well placed Sandra.

Harun Aydin, the Turkish businessman associated with Deputy President William Ruto has been arrested.

Aydin was arrested on Saturday morning at Wilson Airport in Nairobi while re-entering Kenya from Uganda.

Reports indicate that he is currently being held at the Old Nairobi Area Police Station.

Aydin came to the limelight after it was alleged that he was among five people scheduled to accompany the DP to Uganda.

The others are; MPs Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Oscar Sudi (Kapsaret), Benjamin Tayari (Kinango), Mombasa based businessman David Lang’at, Elijah Rono and Eric Ruto.

Earlier on, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen had predicted that the State would arrest the businessman. 

Harun who was being sought by detectives before he checked out of a local hotel where he has been staying runs a company known as Unit 2HA Investment Energy Africa Ltd.

Harun has been staying at a local hotel within the city since June 24, 2021, when he arrived in the country until August 3, 2021, when he checked out just three days after DP Ruto’s saga at Wilson Airport.

The Turkish national who holds passport number U20470175 was issued a working permit by the Department of Immigration Services in Kenya on June 30, 2021, and it is supposed to expire on June 29, 2023.

Harun first jetted into the country in 2018.

DP Ruto has hence dismissed reports that Harun Aydin, is a man of questionable character.

He mentioned that Aydin is a respected Businessman who has a permit to operate in Kenya and even the Turkish embassy has confirmed the same.

Oscar Sudi who was part of the Uganda trip claimed that the media was being used to tarnish the reputation of the businessman and in extension, that of DP Ruto.

Sudi said that Uganda President Yoweri Museveni would not have allowed someone of questionable repute to invest in the country.

Days after Deputy President William Ruto aborted his trip to Uganda, the Yoweri Museveni-led country has issued a statement to clarify the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Ruto was set for a private trip to the neighbouring country on Monday, which was to be his second trip in a month but was blocked by immigration officials at Wilson Airport.

After waiting for clearance for about five hours, the DP is said to have given up and returned to his office.

Ruto’s communication secretary David Mugonyi said Ruto was asked to seek clearance from the Head of Public Service and Secretary to the Cabinet Joseph Kinyua.

The incident stirred mixed reactions, with some Kenyans arguing that Uganda was meddling into Kenya’s affairs.

However, Uganda in a statement has said that it had not arranged any protocol for DP Ruto.

Uganda’s ministry of foreign affairs said the Protocol Department has no record that there was a request for them to provide protocol services to Ruto.

“I was not informed by the chief of protocol being requested by the Kenyan High Commission in Uganda to provide protocol services to the Deputy President,”  State Minister for Foreign Affairs Okello Oryem said.

Oryem said Ugandan foreign policy is very clear that they don’t interfere in the internal affairs of any country whatsoever.

“We have no authority, we have no power over Kenyan government, they have their own reasons why they prevented Ruto from coming to Uganda,” he said.

during an interview with Inooro FM on Wednesday, Ruto said he has previously travelled without obtaining clearance.

“What happened at Wilson is part of the onslaught on me in the supremacy fights in the ranks of Jubilee,” the DP said.

The deputy president said he has been sidelined in government for quite some time.

Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine can now breathe a sigh of relief.

This is after a Ugandan court on Monday, January 25 ordered security forces to cease surrounding the home of the opposition leader.

Bobi Wine, whose house arrest since a mid-month presidential election has drawn international pressure, has been crying foul on social media.

Troops have blocked the 38-year-old pop star-turned-politician from leaving his house in a suburb of the capital Kampala since he voted in the January 14 election where he ran against long-serving incumbent President Yoweri Museveni.

“The judge ordered that the state and its agencies should immediately vacate his property and his right to personal liberty should immediately be reinstated,” Bobi Wine’s lawyer George Musisi told Reuters.

Museveni, 76, who has been in power since 1986, was declared winner of the poll with 59% of votes versus 35% for Wine, who had for years denounced corruption and nepotism in his songs. 

He rejected the result, alleging fraud which the government denies.

Musisi said the judge also ruled that if there were any serious allegations against Wine, he should be brought before a court or police.

Police spokesman Patrick Onyango said he had no immediate comment as the ruling had not been received.

There was no immediate reaction from the government or confirmation from the court.

U.S. ambassador Natalie E. Brown had tried to visit Wine at his home, drawing an accusation of meddling and subversion from the Ugandan government.

During the campaigning security forces routinely broke up the 38-year-old pop star-turned-politician’s rallies with teargas, bullets, beatings and detentions.

They cited violations of laws meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus for those actions.

In November, 54 people were killed as security forces quelled a protest that erupted after Mr Wine was detained for alleged violation of the anti-coronavirus measures.

Bobi Wine’s property had been “completely sealed off” since election day and journalists and lawyers had been unable to get inside to speak to him.

 As Covid-19 continues to bite the economy of most nations around the globe, some African lawmakers have resolved to distributing food among their constituents, to save them from this hard times.

In Kenya, several Members of Parliament have been on the front line distributing food to their people. Embakasi East MP Babu Owino and Lang’ata’s Nixon Korir are among the lawmakers that have shown this commitment so far.

However, the case looks different in the neighboring Uganda.

Police in Mityana District, Uganda on Sunday evening arrested Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake for allegedly distributing food to his starving constituents.

The Wamala region police spokesperson, Rachel Kawala, said the MP was arrested on allegations of distributing food items to constituents in Buswabulongo, Busimbi Division in Mityana municipality contrary to the presidential directives.


Police said the MP had also flouted measures and guidelines of the Covid-19 national taskforce, led by Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda, on food distribution to vulnerable people.

“Today evening at 6 pm, we arrested the honourable Member of Parliament and he is kept in our custody at Mityana central police station for defying the president’s directives,” Ms Kawala said.

She said more details would be provided later by police spokesperson Fred Enanga.

The MP’s arrest comes hours after he posted that it was his conviction that government could still deal with starvation without “thieving” from the poor.

“I have been clandestinely giving out relief food items to my constituents, this I will not stop doing. In the same spirit, today we have successfully shared more food items in Mityana,” he said.

About four hours later, the MP tweeted that his home had been raided by security operatives.

“The tormentors have broken into my home, they are breaking every door of my house searching to arrest me for the crime of sharing food with starving people. Sad!” he said.

Member states of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) have agreed to forge a joint approach to curb the spread of Coronavirus disease.

The Heads of States of Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Sudan, Somalia and South Sudan today held a teleconference where they discussed the challenges the region is facing in managing the global pandemic.

The Heads of State tasked the IGAD Secretariat to urgently formulate a regional response to COVID-19 that adopts a whole-of-government approach.

The leaders also agreed to intensify information sharing including tracking of infected persons.

Further, the Heads of State agreed to direct their relevant agencies to enhance cooperation in border control and management, with a view of ensuring safety along common borders and guarantee movement of cargo.

The leaders appealed to the international community to provide support for vulnerable groups particularly refugees within IGAD countries and to support national efforts to ensure that humanitarian corridors remain open.

In addition, the Heads of State agreed to pursue joint mobilisation of financial resources from international institutions and partners.

They said the region needs resources to help in combating the virus as well as in mitigating the social-economic impact of the disease.

The leaders urged the private sector to contribute more to the fight against the infectious disease.

To mitigate the economic impact of the pandemic, the Heads of State tasked regional ministers of finance to carry out a comprehensive assessment with a view of establishing an IGAD emergency fund.

Further, the Heads of State tasked the IGAD secretariate to formulate appropriate response programmes that will be discussed by the leaders.

The leaders said the assessment will form the basis for joint engagement with international partners such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the African Development Bank Group, and the G20 for economic stimulus packages.

While briefing his counterparts on the measures Kenya is taking to curtail the spread of the virus, President Kenyatta stated the country’s willingness to assist regional nations that may require its support saying, it is imperative for IGAD countries to forge a common front against the global pandemic.

“My administration will do whatever is within its power and capacity to extend any support that our brothers and sisters in our neighboring countries might require,” President Kenyatta said.

President Kenyatta also briefed the leaders on the outcomes of a teleconference of the Bureau of the African Union Heads of State and Government held on 26th March.

One of the key outcomes of the meeting was the agreement to establish a continental anti-Covid-19 Africa Fund to which members of the Bureau agreed to immediately contribute US $12.5 million as seed funding.

The bureau also agreed to contribute a further US $4.5 million towards boosting the capacity of the African Union Centre for Disease Control (Africa CDC).

On its part, Kenya pledged to contribute US$ 2 million and US$ 1 million to the Fund and the Africa CDC respectively.

President Kenyatta reminded IGAD member states to continue the fight against desert locust invasion even as they work to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus.

He said the desert locust invasion risks plunging the region into a food crisis at a time when the world’s attention is focused on dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Chairperson of IGAD who is also the Prime Minister of Sudan Abdalla Hamdok, President Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), President Ismail Omar Guelleh (Djibouti), Vice President Dr. Riek Machar  (South Sudan) and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia participated in the teleconference.

Ugandan Police and military on Tuesday night pitched camp at Musician and opposition politician Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine’s home in yet another move to put him under house arrest.

According to Bobi Wine, police surrounded his home and private property, One Love Beach Busabala from 11:00 pm on Tuesday.

The People Power leader says the police have intentions of putting him under house arrest and block his planned Independence Day Concert, which is 156th concert in Uganda so far.

Bobi Wine has accused the Yoweri Museveni-led government for denying him right to sing and perform in his own country.

“Since 11:00pm, police & military surrounded my home & my private property, One Love Beach Busabala, in yet another move to place me under house arrest & block our Independence Day music concert. 156th concert so far! For singing truth to power, I can’t perform in my own country,” reads Bobi Wine’s post on twitter.

The inspector general of police Martins Okoth Ochola had earlier on canceled the Kyadondo East MP’s music concert.

Ochola in his letter dated October 2, but released on Tuesday to Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP), said Kyagulanyi did not consider the preparatory plans for medical care, traffic control, crowd control and security. 

“The serves to inform you that the notice to the inspector general of police has remarkably deficiencies, which do not guarantee lawfulness, safety, security for the public and organisers,” reads Ochola’s letter by AIGP Asuman Mugenyi. 

Kampala Metropolitan police spokesman, Patrick Onyango, quoting Ochola’s letter said police in Kampala won’t be in position to provide adequate security since police officers will be at the independence celebrations in Sironko and other authorized venues. 

Kyagulanyi had scheduled a music show dubbed ‘Osobola’ at his One Love Beach in Busabala in Makindye Ssabagabo Municipality in Wakiso district.
