The Ngarambe sex scandal and Uganda’s other political couples

The Ngarambe sex scandal and Uganda’s other political couples

For the last two weeks, since April 3, the sex scandal involving the First Secretary of the Rwandan embassy in Kampala, John Ngarambe and a married Ugandan woman, Joyce Rugunda, has been the talk of town in Uganda.

In an operation commanded by General David Tinyefuza, the presidential advisor on the intelligence services, Ngarambe and Rugunda were allegedly caught red-handed in room 220 at the Lake Victoria Hotel on April 1, having sex.

A diplomatic row between Uganda and Rwanda has once again broken out.

The question is, what is there in the Ngarambe scandal that is surprising in Uganda? these things happen all the time between the top leadership in Uganda and their women and boyfriends.

Radio Katwe has told you in detail of the endless sex scandals of President Yoweri Museveni. Many people who once respected him have been shocked to hear of these sickening things.

We have seen Joyce Rugunda and John Ngarambe.

But there is more. Here is the list for you of Uganda’s hot sex couples.

Janet Museveni and Philly Lutaaya

In the 1980s during the NRA war, the Museveni family was granted political asylum in Sweden.

During those idle years, Janet Museveni met a young Ugandan singer called Philly Lutaaya. He was struggling to make a career in music and the two became close. A few sources who know the inside story say that Janet Museveni got her HIV-infection from Philly Lutaaya and they claim that she might have infected Museveni.

Others say Museveni was infected by other women.

But the relationship was for real and the Ugandan community in Sweden saw it openly and knew about it.

That is why when Philly Lutaaya returned to Uganda and declared that he had AIDS, it is Janet Museveni who used her influence to see that he was given a national platform and he became a national hero.

But if you remember, Museveni tried to ignore Lutaaya. He was supposed to be Uganda’s new head of state who had led Africa to see the problem of AIDS, but he was refusing to work closely with Lutaaya.

If you read through his book “Sowing The Mustard Seed”, you will not see anywhere where Museveni says anything about Philly Lutaaya Uganda’s anti-AIDS campaigner.

In fact, a source has told Radio Katwe that if you check the book, you will be surprised that when Museveni is talking about his life and his achievements, he is completely quiet about the subject of AIDS.

He only talks about AIDS on one page, page 214, and there he is accusing Joseph Kony’s LRA men of infecting people with AIDS in Acholi.

At that time in 1996 when the book was completed, Museveni knew he was HIV-positive and his anger at being HIV positive because of Janet made him refuse to even talk about one of his otherwise major achievements, fighting AIDS.

Janet Museveni and James Tumusiime

Before the Museveni family went to exile in Sweden in 1983 or 1984, they stayed in Nairobi.

Naturally Janet became lonely. When her husband was out in the bush fighting his war of fundamental change, Janet found consolation in James Tumusiime. Museveni it seems did not know that Tumusiime was bonking Janet because at Tumusiime’s wedding, Museveni’s daughters Natasha and Patience were bridesmaids.

When Museveni found out that Janet had been sleeping with Tumusiime, he was so angry and jealous.

But he could do nothing. That is why he tried to keep Tumusiime down in Ugandan society. Tumusiime was prominent enough to be a minister in the first NRM government of 1986 but Museveni put his foot down.

Tumusiime was appointed the editor of the New Vision when it was started in 1987. But as soon as Museveni had a choice he appointed William Pike to head the New Vision and keep Tumusiime under Pike as deputy. .

Jovia Saleh and Hope Mukasa

During the Obote II regime, Hope Mukasa a young singer befriended the wife of a Major in the UNLA army. The Major wanted Mukasa’s neck and that is how he fled into exile in Kenya.

When he was in Kenya, he met a beautiful Kenyan from the coast called Sheena. She looked after him and tried to promote his music career.

Hope came back to Uganda in 1987 or 1988 and set up a recording studio in Kampala.

Somewhere, somehow, the wife of Major-General Salim Saleh, a one Jovia, eyed Hope Mukasa and she decided that she wanted him.

With Jovia, she does not wait for men to woo her. She is the one who gets the men she wants. Jovia came in and took over Hope from Sheena.

Sheena would feel so bad about it but she could do nothing. Jovia was mad about Hope. If Hope flew out of the country to Sweden, Jovia would jump on the next plane and follow him.

If Hope went to London and Jovia did not know about it, as soon as she knew of it, she would buy a ticket and fly to London. Jovia was chasing Hope, not the other way round.

Hope’s sister Juliet used to caution her brother about the affair. She said he had been exiled once because of playing around with the wife of an army man and it could happen again. But Hope could not shake off Jovia because she persisted.

When Hope Mukasa’s father became sick, he was admitted at the Kisekka Foundation Hospital in Kampala.

Jovia used to visit him almost everyday and she took care of the bills. When the old man died, Jovia Saleh was devastated.

At the time of the burial, Jovia ordered a whole Tata truck full of army beer to be taken to the burial site of Hope Mukasa’s father.

Jovia told some close friends that as far as she is concerned, she has never loved a man the way she loves or loved Hope Mukasa. Jovia said that General Salim Saleh is a boring man in bed and he does not know how to make a woman happy.

She said Saleh “finishes” very fast and she does not have time to enjoy sex.

Jovia Saleh has also been befriending young boys, and one of them used to come to sleep with her on a boda boda.

General Saleh has been humiliated as a man by his wife, but again, what can he do?

Hope Mwesigye and Sam Kuteesa

It is well known in some circles in Kampala that the Minister of State, Hope Mwesigye who is a sister to Jacqueline Mbabazi the Defence Minister’s wife, has become a concubine of the Foreign Minister Sam Kuteesa.

We are not sure when the two began sleeping together, but they are a tight match. Hope Mwesigye’s husband has had no choice but concede that he has lost his wife to Kuteesa.

Rose Kateera and Mwesigwa Rukutana

The Minister of State Mwesigwa Rukutana is another man who should not be laughing at the plight of the Rwandan diplomat.

Ever since the Kampala laywer Jonathan Kateera died in 1996 or 1997, Mwesigwa Rukutana has been doing the husbandly duties on Mrs. Rose Kateera.

In fact, one time Rukutana’s wife came to know about these two bedmates and she laid a trap for them.

They used to meet in the go down restaurant below the Crested Towers roundabout near Nile Hotel.

Mrs. Rukutana laid the trap and when the bonking had started, she stormed the love bed and caught the two embarrassed people in the same position as how Tinyefuza’s men grabbed Ngarambe at the Lake Victoria Hotel.

Susan Muhwezi and Yoweri Museveni

As we told you in our story on “James”, that is Jim Muhwezi, President Museveni has made Susan Muhwezi his bed partner. This has hurt Jim Muhwezi and humiliated him before his fellow men, but what can he do.

He decided to take revenge by sleeping with Museveni’s favourite child Natasha. In his humiliation, Muhwezi decided to grab money and become stinking rich as a consolation.

If you know of any other political couples who make Joyce Rugunda and John Ngarambe look so innocent, feel free to send in their names and their love stories to Radio Katwe.

Our mission is universal primary education, educating Ugandans on their true history between 1986 and 2006.

Major Muhoozi Kainerugaba --- up close and personal

Major Muhoozi Kainerugaba --- up close and personal

Radio Katwe promised its readers in March that we would bring you a dossier on the third most powerful man in Uganda, Major Muhoozi Kainerugaba.

Here it is for you.

Muhoozi as we all know is a son of President Yoweri Museveni (also known as “Mzee”).

The official line is that Muhoozi was born in 1974, but some sources say he could have been born in 1972 or 1973.

As we have been reporting and as the late President Milton Obote told the country long ago, Muhoozi was born out of a union between Museveni and a young Mutooro woman who either worked for the Foreign Service or was a recruit in the FRONASA organisation.

She was called Hope and had been Museveni’s housekeeper. She was a sister to Museveni’s former classmate Valerino Rwaheru at Ntare School in the 1960s.

Some UPC sources who know the story well say that one day in Tanzania, maybe in a state of mental breakdown or depression, Museveni pounced on Hope and cut her up with a panga (machete), killing her.

Other people say he suspected she was a spy planted on him by the Amin regime and he decided to murder her.

But the fact is that Muhoozi’s mother was murdered by Museveni and it has been and remained a closely guarded secret known to very few people.

Anyway, one day in 1978 when the Museveni family was still in exile in Dar es Salaam, Natasha who was still very young became sick with malaria.

Museveni came home in the evening and shouted at Muhoozi, asking him why he did not look after his sister so that she does not get malaria. You can imagine a man who shouts at a young boy who did not even understand what being sick was!

That is how Museveni’s relationship was and has remained with Muhoozi. They are not close in an emotional way. Muhoozi behaves toward Muhoozi as you would behave towards your boss at the office.

When Museveni came to power in 1986, Muhoozi and Natasha were taken to Kampala Parents School which was the best primary school at that time in Kampala.

Muhoozi was raised like his sisters Natasha, Patience, and Diana in the strict Mulokole (born again) way which Janet adopted a few years after Museveni came to power.

His friends at Kings’ College Budo used to wonder when they would see him going to the school chapel alone as a teenager and reading the Bible a lot. He was quiet and down to earth. You can even say he was humble.

He was the same person when he went to St. Mary’s College Kisubi for A’Level.

During their primary and secondary school days, Museveni’s children were not very bright in class and the First Couple used to hire teachers to come to State House and coach them during the holidays.

Museveni feels that his daughters are not very intelligent because they inherited their mother’s dullness.

But he does not tell us why Muhoozi is also not very sharp and yet Janet is not his mother.

Muhoozi did not perform outstandingly his A’Level and he was sent to Nottingham University to study economics and political science.

Some people claim that when Muhoozi was sent to Nottingham University, a one Fideri Kirungi who was an ISO agent was also given a scholarship to Nottingham under the cover of being a student, but that his main work was to safeguard Muhoozi and report on any threats to the President’s son.

Kirungi came back, got a job at the Monitor in Kampala and while he was there, he used to pass information on to ISO about Monitor activities. He later left the Monitor to start the Weekly Observer along with a number of Monitor staff like the late Kevin Aliro, Linda Nabusayi, and Ibrahim Semujju.

A number of reports reaching Radio Katwe say that Muhoozi was dull in school and they go so far as to say he did not even finish his Bachelors of Arts degree.

At the time Muhoozi came back from Nottingham University, Uganda was a country crazy about celebrity and the newspapers reported on any celebrity gossip.

Some observers have reasoned in submissions to Radio Katwe that if Muhoozi had finished and earned a degree, his Nottingham graduation ceremony would have been given mazimum publicity in photo displays and gossip stories in the Ugandan newspapers.

This did not happen at all and it proves that the rumours that he did not finish university could be true.

Instead he came back home and joined the army. He got a number of young people to start undergoing military training somewhere at Kasenyi near Entebbe where the Presidential Protection Unit used to train.

These young people included Victor Rumanyika, Jimmy Bageire, Brian Walusimbi, Bob Drani, and others.

Drani is the bald-headed guy who commanded the Black Mamba during their raid of the High Court last November and it is suspected that Brian Walusimbi who is now in America is one of the ESO agents stationed in North America.

Muhoozi, Victor Rumanyika, Charles Mweibeha, and Karoli Ssemogerere (son of DP heavyweight Paulo Ssemogerere) started the “Frontline” magazine in 1994.

It was supposed to be a magazine on current affairs in Uganda but focusing on the NRM “struggle” and the armed conflicts in Uganda since 1962.

When Muhoozi joined hands with Ssemogerere’s son in a publishing venture like this, observers felt that he was showing some tolerance and liberal thinking which respects other political views, unlike his father Museveni who hates views different from his.

But around 1996 after the presidential elections, the old liberal Muhoozi began dying out. He was being groomed by his father to succeed him and Museveni was making that clear to the boy. “Frontline” magazine died out.

In 1996 or 1997, Muhoozi once tried to have sex with Lenina Mbabazi the daughter of NRM heavyweight Amama Mbabazi at the conference center or the Nile Hotel.

Nina resisted his advances and he then tried to rape her. He failed to rape her and the scandal was quietly buried.

Muhoozi became interested in a number of girls and wanted to get married, but Janet Museveni would vet them and refuse them.

Muhoozi once dated a girl called Flower who used to work at Wina Classics boutique on Kampala Road.

He invited her to State House one day for lunch. Flower came in a sexy and provocative dress. The whole family was at the table.

Museveni kept eyeing Flower and asking her questions about her life, her family, and her school. He was enjoying himself and he found Flower amusing.

Janet was seated at the other side of the dining table and she was becoming angry at the attention her husband was giving Flower. She knew what he wanted from Flower.

Muhoozi was quiet the whole time and said very little.

After that, Janet flushed Flower out of State House and told Muhoozi point blank that she never wanted to see Flower again there.

Muhoozi after that dated Olivia Sabune (or Sabuni). Janet Museveni refused to hear Muhoozi when he wanted to marry Olivia. She was vetoed by Janet also.

Olivia Sabune is now living in Sweden.

Muhoozi clashed over Olivia with a guy called Andrew Kananura or “Desh” as he is nicknamed.

A big problem came when Natasha Museveni became crazy about Desh. There was no way Muhoozi was going to allow Natasha to marry Desh when Muhoozi was a bitter rival with Desh over Olivia.

There was another problem and this problem made Janet Museveni almost go mad.

Andrew Kananura’s mother, Stella Kagandi Kananura, was a first aunt of Winnie Byanyima. Andrew and Winnie are first cousins.

There was no way in hell that Andrew was going to marry Natasha and then at the wedding, Janet Museveni finds herself sitting in the same room as Winnie and moreover from then on, Janet and her bitter rival Winnie become in-laws!

The relationship between Desh and Natasha was crushed to death. But up to now, Natasha says that is she had had her way, she would have married Desh because that is where her heart was in a sincere way.

When Muhoozi’s turn came to get married in 1999, Janet made it clear that all other girls had been vetoed and Muhoozi was instead to marry Charlotte Nankunda Kuteesa, the daughter of Sam Jennifer Kuteesa.

Muhoozi complained and complained but Museveni and Janet put their feet down.

Just before their glamorous wedding in July 1999, Muhoozi went on a sex spree with other girls as a protest against being forced to marry Charlotte whom he did not love or like.

After they got married, Muhoozi refused to sleep with Charlotte for even one hour for the first three or four months of their marriage. He even left Charlotte and moved to another house in Entebbe.

But Janet and Museveni forced him with threats to go back to his wife. Muhoozi’s life became a living hell to this day.

He went on with his sex sprees. One of the high profile girls he slept with was Jackie Rwivanga Rugasira, the wife of the businessman Andrew Rugasira. What could Rugasira do but swallow?

Muhoozi is reported to have even slept with Susan Muhwezi, wife of Brigadier Jim Muhwezi but Radio Katwe cannot confirm this yet.

Muhoozi was sent to the military college Sandhurst soon after his wedding. How Muhoozi went to Sandhurst showed the criminal character of Museveni, a man who will bend any rule and tell any lie without shame to get his way.

The students who are admitted to Sandhurst must be soldiers already but Muhoozi was not. So State House created the lie that Muhoozi was a Local Defence Unit paramilitary soldier and he qualified.

Pressure was also put on the British High Commission in Kampala to put in a word for Muhoozi and he ended up being admitted to Sandhurst.

There is a Japanese army officer who was a student at Sandhurst at the same time as Muhoozi. One day he met a Ugandan in Tokyo and when the Ugandan told the Japanese that he was a Ugandan, the Japanese officer asked him what he thought about Muhoozi.

The Japanese laughed and said he had not seen an empty head like Muhoozi’s for a long time. He said at Sandhurst, Muhoozi failed to impress anybody and he was always at the bottom of the class.

Another Ugandan familiar with Sandhurst said Muhoozi never used to feature much in the classes for strategic planning and military doctrine. He was usually in the gym and the physical fitness classes.

But when the boy graduated, his graduation was given several pages in Uganda’s newspapers and he was treated like a celebrity. Museveni attended the ceremony in person along with two of his daughters.

That is why we are telling you that if Muhoozi had finished at Nottingham University, we would have seen his graducation photos everywhere in Uganda.

After his Sadhurst course, he was deployed in the Presidential Protection Unit. Muhoozi recommended that the Commandant of the PPU should be Lt. Leopold Kyanda.

There was a time when Leo Kyanda was making a habit of sleeping with many men’s wives and one of these women was Alice Kaboyo, who is related to Janet Museveni. Alice Kaboyo’s husband, the late Kenneth Kaboyo complained bitterly at what Kyanda was doing with his wife.

When the scandal became too much for State House, Kyanda was transferred to become the Chief of Military Intelligence, to cool the situation down.

Muhoozi has now become the right-hand man of his father and he is a deputy to his uncle General Salim Saleh in doing special duties for Museveni.

The latest reports we have are that Muhoozi is the guy who actually runs the External Security Organisation and Lt. John Maku-Iga is just a miserable figure head.

Muhoozi walks to ESO and gets the largest chunk of the operational budget and spends it as he likes. The staff at ESO have become demoralised.

Agents and operatives who work for ESO and ISO are given 300,000 shs. A week as an operational allowance but many in ESO are complaining that they are no longer getting their benefits because of Muhoozi.

Muhoozi has taken charge of a top security site on Mutungo Hill called the Katonga Complex. This is where ESO has its listening station and gadgets to intercept satellite phone communication and conversations.

We also have reliable information to the effect that in the Presidential Guard Brigade, the soldiers who guard the First Family do not like Muhoozi at all. They see him as a privileged boy who does nothing but order them around.

The hate and resentment became so serious that since February, the PGB has slowly been undergoing a reshuffle and many PGB boys have been re-deployed to other units in the regular army.

This is why Museveni is wearing body armour so much these days. He knows that even the PGB can no longer be counted on to be loyal to him. The problem is that the PGB is made up mainly of the Bahima who are the people in Uganda who are the closest to Museveni and who have benefited most under his regime.

Museveni now wonders that if the Bahima are becoming disgruntled, who can he turn to?

Muhoozi now takes care of the First Family’s business interests. When the issue of selling the Dairy Corporation to a Thai “investor” collapsed, Andrew Rugasira contacted some South Africans to see if they could become the new owners.

He was doing the deal on behalf of the First Family and he got a phone call one night. Muhoozi was on the line and after talking to Rugasira, he transferred Rugasira directly to a line where Museveni was waiting.

Museveni stated the First Family’s interest in the deal and Rugasira took his marching orders.

This is why we wonder when some people still believe that Museveni is not the Thief-in-Chief of Uganda. He is the Mastermind of all the corruption we see.

Muhoozi’s wife Charlotte opened an Internet café at Garden City in Kampala.

When another company also came up and tried to open a café there, Charlotte ordered the authorities to block the other café from operating there. She said point blank that she did not want competition near her business.

You can read more on Muhoozi in our earlier story on how he was ordered by Janet Museveni to kick Amelia Kyambadde out of State House after the Kisozi ranch title was registered in the names of Amber Kyambadde, a child who Museveni has with Amelia.

We shall be bringing you more dossiers on the top people in the NRM inner circle so that the cycle of ignorance that Ugandans have suffered is broken.

What is driving Jim Muhwezi's actions?

What is driving Jim Muhwezi’s actions?

Last week, the Minister of Health and former Director General of the Internal Security Organisation, Major General Jim Muhwezi, was in the news again. He was appearing before the commission of inquiry into how the Global Fund on AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria was misused in Uganda.

The swindling of the money led to the fund cutting off more than 145 million dollars in funding in 2005 to Uganda.

The public has failed to understand this man Muhwezi. He has been censured before but was re-appointed. He has money that cannot be explained except for massive corruption, but he cannot be removed from the political scene.

When he faced Justice James Ogoola last week to testify his side of the story, Ogoola asked him, “Have you no sense of horror?”

Ogoola was asking the wrong question and addressing the wrong man.

In this intelligence briefing, Radio Katwe will trace the public life of Muhwezi and we shall help the public understand how he operates.

Jim Muhwezi was born into a family in Rukungiri in western Uganda. His father was an Anglican Protestant Reverend and a staunch supporter of the Uganda People’s Congress ruling party of Milton Obote.

Muhwezi is a Muhima of the Bahororo sub-tribe (the same group of the Chief of Defence Forces, General Aronda Nyakirima.)

Radio Katwe has not managed to find out the name of the secondary school Muhwezi attended for his O’Levels, but what we know is that he fled that school after raping a female student there.

He completed his A’Level exams at Old Kampala Senior Secondary School. He joined Makerere University in the late 1970s where he studied for a Law degree. At that time, he also secretly joined FRONASA, the rebel group commanded by Yoweri Museveni.

Museveni found a way of getting Muhwezi to join Idi Amin’s State Researh Bureau, the intelligence service at that time. Muhwezi was planted in the State Research Bureau to gather information that would help Museveni fight Amin better.

Muhwezi during his time at the State Research Bureau saw something which shocked him. Most of the killings under Amin which were allegedly being committed by Amin’s Kakwa, Lugbara and Nubian tribesmen were actually being committed by the exiled Tutsi refugees in Uganda (the Banyarwanda) on orders of Museveni.

The purpose was to commit these heinous crimes and have the world blame them on Amin. That was when Muhwezi developed an intense hatred for the Tutsi.

After Amin fell, Muhwezi joined the Uganda police force while still a Museveni sympathizer. He was arrested in 1981 after Museveni started his bush war and he was detained by the UPC government at Jinja Road Police station.

He escaped, he claims, with the help of Hope Kivengere, the daughter of Bishop Festo Kivengere.

In the bush, Museveni appointed him head of intelligence after the head of intelligence, David Tinyefuza, misbehaved so many times.

Muhwezi continued in that role when the NRM came to power in 1986.

In 1987, Muhwezi married a pretty girl called Susan Kabonero and their wedding reception was hosted at State House.

According to some reports Radio Katwe has, Muhwezi like many of his fellow NRA officers became a serial womanizer and he got a child with his cousin, a woman who worked with the UNDP either in Nairobi or Kampala.

He also loved the flashy life and used to siphon off money from the classified ISO budget for his extravagant lifestyle.

Some relatives who have lived in the Muhwezi home say he is vain and childish like Kampala businessman Peter Sematimba.

These relatives say that Muhwezi and his wife Susan used to spend around the same time in front of the mirror each morning.

One day at Kisementi in Kampala around 1997 or 1998, Muhwezi was trying to impress a certain woman at the Just Kickin’ sports bar. He pulled out a ward of U.S. dollar bills from his wallet and was running his fingers through them.

He had an affair with the Kampala lawyer and socialite Candy Wekesa.

He is as childish as that. But although he has that pimp-ish character, under his watch for 10 years until he was replaced in 1996, there was no coup in Uganda or too much instability to threaten the centre of power, Kampala.

It seems that late in the 1990s, President Museveni started sleeping with Muhwezi’s wife Susan. Jim was humiliated but as a serving officer he could do nothing about getting even with his commander-in-chief.

In 1998, Museveni told a meeting at State House of Ankole members of parliament that he had information that Muhwezi was plotting against him.

Even recently in February, Smart Musolin reported that Muhwezi had refused to give rooms in his Rukungiri hotel for the Elect Museveni task force.

When Muhwezi is humiliated as a man, he uses sex to retaliate.

In the early 2000s, Muhwezi wooed a girl called Ruth Kandehura (better known as “Kande”) Sabiti. Kande is related to Susan and was brought to the Muhwezi home by Susan as a guardian.

Kande’s father, as Radio Katwe has reported, was Thompson Sabiti, a Muhima civil servant resident in Entebbe whom Museveni secretly ordered murdered in 1983 near the Lake Victoria Hotel so Museveni could put the blame on the then Vice President Paulo Muwanga and also get the angry Bahima to hate the UPC government and support Museveni’s NRA.

Muhwezi started sleeping with Kande Sabiti but it seems Susan Muhwezi did not suspect anything. Muhwezi even put Kande up in a flat in Bugolobi at his expense.

But one day, Susan picked up Jim’s cell phone and noticed that there were many SMS messages from Kande. She wondered what was going on and kept track of her husband.

Susan realized that these two were having a sexual relationship and she went mad.

She called her brother Bob Kabonero of Kampala Casino and they called for a wider family meeting to put Jim to task.

It was decided that Kande, who at that time was in London, should be summoned also to the family tribunal. Muhwezi was at the airport to receive Kande and they came walking hand in hand.

At the family meeting, Muhwezi point-blank told Susan that she was his third wife and Kande was now his fourth wife, so Susan should leave him alone.

Muhwezi asked the assembled family members one question: “What moral authority did Susan have to question his relationship with Kande?”

The family members were quiet because they knew he was hurt and humiliated and he was indirectly talking about Susan’s sleeping with Museveni.

The other way he took revenge for Museveni sleeping with his wife was to go where it hurt Museveni most, that is by sleeping with his favourite child Natasha.

So that is Muhwezi for you. The man you see in public flashing money about and dressed in sharp suits is not a happy man in private.

The way he was answering Justice Ogoola, the head of a commission appointed by President Museveni, told a lot. Muhwezi by trying to dismiss Ogoola was indirectly challenging Museveni to sack him as Minister of Health.

Muhwezi was not really attacking Justice Ogoola. He was hitting at Museveni.

Muhwezi knows that Museveni fears him so a number of reasons. Muhwezi is the one man in Kampala who knows Museveni’s most petty and embarrassing weaknesses better than almost anybody in the world.

It is Jim Muhwezi who has acted as Museveni’s pimp for many years.

When Museveni wanted to sleep with housemaids, cooks, office secretaries and take women secretly on his trips abroad, it was Muhwezi who used to arrange for the women to be put on the presidential jet behind Janet Museveni’s back.

Muhwezi also knows Museveni’s personal record of massive corruption and theft of state money and assets, so he knows that by being accused of embezzling Global Fund money, the real culprit, Museveni, is being let off the hook.

Jim Muhwezi also knows the inside story of who really ordered the shooting down of the plane carrying Rwandan president Juvenal Habyarimana in 1994 and the genocide that followed.

That is why he knows he is untoucheable. He knows who the Thief-in-Chief is in Uganda.

These are things that only Radio Katwe can bring you in Uganda. We explain the political, money, and sexual forces that operate behind the scenes in Museveni’s regime.
