They claim that the two adults’ in the video were embarrassed by police and their privacy rights were violated. 

Casmir’s saga remains a heated debate both on social media and public domain with different opinions landed with many people arguing that he didn’t commit any crime by having sex with a married woman and the police shouldn’t have been involved.

Even though adultery is no longer an offense, different cultural and religious institutions have varying punishments for individuals caught cheating.

Museveni suggests that Bobi Wine’s NUP gets off IPOD funding list

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni; the NRM party chairman has suggested that leading opposition party, National Unity Platform(NUP) should be scrapped off the list of those supposed to benefit from IPOD funding for refusal to  join the political party coalition.

NUP recently said they will not join IPOD because the platform has largely been used to legitimize the NRM that has no regard or respect for democracy.

“The regime uses it (IPOD) for political gain, far from its intended objective of strengthening Uganda’s multiparty democracy. You will agree that in the past ten years of IPOD’s existence in Uganda, the democratic space has shrunk, going from bad to worse every successive year” said NUP Secretary General Lewis Rubongoya.

The dialogue for IPOD Council of Secretaries General of member political parties at State House Entebbe was yesterday graced by Richard Tadwong, the NRM Secretary General, Gerald Siranda of Democratic Party (DP), Mohammad Kateregga (JEEMA) and Ebil Fred of Uganda People’s Congress (UPC).

Speaking at this council, Museveni who is also the current chairperson of the IPOD urged all political parties in Uganda to work together and resolve the issues affecting the country.

Museveni says despite the political differences political parties should take lead in the promotion of peace and stability in the country.

President Museveni’s remarks about peace on Twitter.

“Because the idea is, although you have differences, please work for stability by sharing some common positions in a forum and the only forum is this one (IPOD),” said Museveni.

He noted that although IPOD brings together all political parties represented in parliament, some do not want to cooperate with others and therefore, these should not qualify for government funding under IPOD arrangement.

“It should even be put in the law that those who don’t want to be part of the forum, should not share that money since their work is contrary to the spirit of dialogue and unity for the country,” Museveni stressed.

According to the IPOD Council Chairperson, Richard Todwong, NUP is getting more funding than UPC, DP and JEEMA since these funds are allocated to the seven political parties in Parliament in accordance with their numerical strength.

At the May 2019 IPOD summit, President Museveni committed to increase public funding to political parties from shs10 billion to shs35 billion.

“Indeed, the shs35 billion funding was made available and in the January-March quarter, shs23 billion was released by the Ministry of Finance out of shs35 billion passed by parliament in the supplementary budget for funding political parties under IPOD,” Tadwong remarked.

According to the allocation; NRM got shs17 billion (74%), NUP got 3.1 billion (13.5%), FDC got shs1.7 billion (7.4%), DP and UPC each got shs 485 million (2.1%) JEEMA and PPP each got shs 53 million (0.2%)

President Museveni maintained his earlier position that 15% of the total amount should be shared equally among member parties for administrative expenses, another 15% to be allocated to the IPOD secretariat for joint activities for the member parties and 70% be allocated based on numerical strength of parliamentary representation of member parties.

IPOD is an organization that brings together all political parties represented in Parliament with a cardinal objective of promoting meaningful interparty dialogue in pursuit of the peaceful coexistence of national development activities.

Former CMI boss sued for allegedly torturing Kasese district NUP coordinator

Government together with the former Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence(CMI) boss, Maj Gen Abel Kandiho have been sued over the alleged torture of Samuel Masereka, the coordinator of the National Unity Platform (NUP) in Kasese district.

In a case file before the Civil Division of the High Court in Kampala on Tuesday morning, Masereka a student of Medical Radiography at Earnest Cook, Mengo in Kampala says that on January, 7, 2022, at around 6pm while playing pool at a local pub in Kasese, three security operatives clad in UPDF attire attached to CMI arrested him and later confiscated his phone.

He says that immediately after the arrest, a pistol was pointed to his mouth and asked to remain silent, before he was dragged into a waiting drone car and whisked away to Kasese Central Police Station and later to Kilembe Police Post where he spent the night.

Masereka says UPDF operatives in the company of officer Bwambale then picked him from the cells on Saturday, 8, January, at around 9am and asked him to lead them to his home in Nyamwamba East.

Masereka added that while at his home, despite the absence of his lawyers, a comprehensive search was done & his laptop, national ID, flash disk, sim card and National Unity Platform documents used for mobilization were confiscated as exhibits. He says that he was later driven back to Kasese Police Station from where he recorded a statement and later handcuffed and driven to Kampala accompanied by 3 UPDF officers.

“Upon reaching Busega, I was hooded and then proceeded to an unknown destination. When the hood was taken off, we had reached our destination. I was totally undressed, even with no under garments and my particulars taken at the reception. During the night, I asked some of my fellow detainees where we were and I was told that it is Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) Mbuya,” he said.

The court documents say the following day he was led for interrogation before four officers and that during the interrogation, he was asked about the funders and plans for the National Unity Platform, his phone conversation with NUP’s Lewis Rubongoya and the opposition party’s next move.

Masereka says he was tortured for several days after his answers never “amused” his interrogators, adding that at one time blood was oozing out of his mouth, nose, genital, and all over his body.

 “The applicant seeks a declaration that the respondent’s actions of battering, flogging, intentional infliction of wounds, harassment waterboarding and torture while in detention at CMI Mbuya threatened and violated his non-derogable freedom from torture, cruel and inhumane and degrading treatment guaranteed by articles 24 and 44 of the 1995 Constitution and section 3(1) of the Prevention and Prohibition of Torture Act 2021,” the court documents say.

He also wants court to declare that his detention for 19 days and in an ungazetted detention centre was unlawful and illegal and consequently wants court to order for special damages and general damages.

Tunisian President Kais Saied dissolves the Supreme Judicial Council

The Supreme Judicial Council is an independent and constitutional institution, formed in 2016. Its powers include ensuring the independence of the judiciary, disciplining judges and granting them professional promotions.

Saied who has repeatedly criticized the judiciary’s delay in issuing rulings in cases of corruption and terrorism says he would not allow judges to act as if they are a state, instead of being a function of the state. Last month, Saied revoked all financial privileges for the council members.

Saied called the council a thing of the past, adding he will issue a temporary decree whose details he did not reveal to the council.

Last month, a plan to redraw the constitution was disclosed when the president initiated an online public consultation and he says drafting a new constitution will be put to a referendum.

In July last year, Saied dismissed the government and suspended parliament, a move his opponents described as a coup. He has been broadly criticized after seizing power and rejecting dialogue with all political parties.

Dissolving the body that deals with judicial independence is a move that has raised fears about the independence of the judiciary and cast doubt on Tunisia’s decade-old democratic system.

I’m still a Staunch NUP supporter- Mikie Wine.

Musician Mikie Wine born Mukwaya Michael, 31 has come out to strongly deny accusations of betraying his brother, Bobi Wine(Robert Kyagulanyi); the NUP president.

His visit to Pastor Aloysious Bugingo’s House of Prayer Ministries Church was viewed by a number of NUP supporters as a betrayal of his elder brother as Pastor Bugingo attacked Bobi Wine and his party National Unity Platform – NUP for months. However, Mikie Wine visited his church and staged an amazing performance.

Many were seen on social media hurling insults at him accusing him of being a traitor who eats with their enemy. He said he used the great opportunity to preach about NUP.

During an exclusive interview on a local Television station yesterday evening, Mikie spoke about his visit and explained that he was taken to the church by Levixone with whom they have a collabo. “Levixone called me and said that Bugingo invited him to his church. He told me there was going to be many people so it was going to be an opportunity for me to sing for them,” Mikie Wine narrated.

“I sang for them and told them about my brother Bobi Wine and NUP. We have to represent the struggle wherever we go and those people needed to also hear our message. I wanted to take ghetto to church just the way Bobi took it to Parliament. Church people also needed to see someone from the ghetto who has become successful so they can get inspired,” He explained.

 “I thought Bugingo wasn’t going to allow me to step on the stage even. You can abuse me on TV but when we meet and you see how I’m a positive person, you change your mind,” He said.

 Mikie Wine collaborated with Levixone on a gospel song dubbed, “Guno Omwaka” and it is receiving fair airplay.

Mikie assured Ugandans that he is still a staunch NUP member.

A new fast-spreading HIV variant has been discovered.

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) says the newly published research from the Netherlands has revealed the existence of a more transmissible and damaging variant of HIV.

The study, led by researchers from the University of Oxford’s Big Data Institute, was the first to discover this highly virulent variant of the subtype-B of HIV. The study also revealed that the variant has been circulating in the Netherlands for years and remains receptive to HIV treatment.

People living with the newly revealed HIV subtype experience double the rate of immune system decline (CD4 count), have higher HIV viral loads (amount of virus in the blood) and are vulnerable to developing AIDS two to three times faster after diagnosis than if they were living with other strains of the virus.

UNAIDS says the variant damages the immune system, weakening people’s ability to fight everyday infections and diseases much faster than the previous HIV strains. This newly identified variant does not represent a major public health threat but underscores the urgency of speeding up efforts to halt the HIV pandemic.

Eamonn Murphy, the UNAIDS Deputy Executive Director said that 10 million people living with HIV worldwide are not yet on treatment, fueling the continued spread of the virus and potential for further variants.

The HIV pandemic continues to take a life every minute and scientists have long worried about the evolution of new, more transmissible, variants of HIV.
