AUPL: Vipers Stun Simba in Bombo

Police are detaining six suspected armed robbers at the Central Police Station (CPS) in Kampala in connection with the theft of a truck Lorry Reg. Number UAX 009F.

Police Spokesperson, cialis 40mg Fred Enanga told the media at CPS that the suspects were arrested during an operation conducted by the Police’s Flying Squad having trailed them for days.

“When we got surveillance that the group was selling the vehicle, we worked it out with the buyer and that’s how we got them,” Enanga revealed.

Those in custody are; Agaba Osbert, Eddy Twahurwa, Andrew Wanyama, Ruutu Kiseka, Charles Mwebaze and Mwesigye Mohamad  who were arrested in the areas of Lubiri in Kampala.

Police recovered a star pistol number 29023419 with 6 rounds which the group used during their operations.

Enanga said, “We are building on the information that we already have to identify other members of the gang because we believe they are not working in isolation.”

On the other hand, Enanga noted that the Flying Squad also foiled attempts by some suspected arsonists who wanted to burn houses in Kisenyi following a conflict over land ownership.

He revealed that the land owner James Dagirira made attempts to evict occupants on the contested land but had not succeeded


“The intelligence that we have is that Dagirira hired Michael Ssekizivu to use Petrol bombs to burn down close to ten houses on his plot of land.”

“We have recovered 10 Jerry cans of Petrol; we arrested the two for conspiracy to commit a crime and are under our custody.”
State Minister for Youth and Children Affairs, page Evelyn Anite, unhealthy has warned Dr Kizza Besigye against what she described as “unwarranted acts of intimidation,” saying the FDC Presidential candidate should not expect to score above 10 percent in West Nile during the 2016 presidential elections.

Anite was responding to Besigye’s threats of “consequences in future” should she continue harassing his supporters.

“If people like Amama Mbabazi are running away from Museveni and NRM who is this girl called Anite?” wondered Besigye as he addressed crowds at Obachi grounds in Koboko town on Monday.

“I have been told that she has been moving around town intimidating and harassing our people. Such people should be careful.”

In response, Anite said she simply “did my ground work and mobilised people to support President Museveni. People just don’t like Besigye. He should concede that we are better mobilisers,” said Anite.

In an exclusive interview with ChimpReports on Wednesday, Anite wondered how “a young girl as Besigye described me can intimidate men. The people are just tired of Besigye’s lies.”

It is understood that Besigye did not pull mammoth crowds as his strategists expected. In Maracha, the situation worsened with the FDC strongman addressing rallies of less than 100 people.

Besigye was informed that Anite had bribed local leaders to mobilise people not to turn up at his rallies.


Observers say Besigye is finding Northern Uganda a much more difficult terrain compared to 2001 and 2006 when the people were frustrated by government’s failure to completely end the war and initiate recovery programmes.

During the 2006 elections, Besigye performed superbly in Lango, Teso and Acholi sub-regions – defeating Museveni with over 70 percent.

However, there was a significant shift of loyalty in 2011 with Museveni winning in 17 out of 20 districts which acted as Besigye’s fortress in Northern Uganda. This was after the defeat of rebel LRA movement and its leader, Joseph Kony.

In the 2011 elections, Museveni’s votes increased to 5.4 million from 4 million in 2006.

This implied an increase of 1.3 million votes – most of which were derived from northern Uganda.

Yet, Besigye’s national vote tally tumbled from 2,592,954 in 2006 to 2,064,963 votes in 2011, representing a loss of 527,991 votes.

Museveni emerged victorious in 107 out of 112 districts with Besigye only managing to win in the four districts of Soroti, Serere, Kaberamaido and Kampala.

Anite speaks out

Anite hit the national limelight when she knelt before the NRM caucus to move a motion to endorse president Museveni as the party’s “sole candidate” in the 2016 elections.

The motion caught many by surprise including then powerful NRM Secretary General Amama Mbabazi who was quietly nursing presidential ambitions.

Since then, Anite has been clandestinely mobilising for president Museveni.

She told this website that “I see Besigye getting less than 10 percent from Northern Uganda. The things he used to decampaign Museveni such as insecurity, bad roads and lack of access to energy have been addressed. The road from Arua to Koboko via Maracha to Oreba has been tarmacked. All our districts are connected to electricity – so what message will Besigye sell?”

Anite added: “The women and elderly can’t support Besigye because there are entrepreneurship programmes which have economically empowered them. The youth are benefitting from Youth Livelihood Programme.  The ground is harder for him than ever before.”

Reminded that even Mbabazi who was close to Museveni chose to jump off the NRM ship, Anite responded: “Besigye’s threats don’t worry me. I have reasons why I support NRM. The likes of Mbabazi were undisciplined. They left Museveni – he did not leave them. He even gave them chances to return to the party but they refused to take the offer.”
With the first half of the season wrapped up, price Vipers coach Edward Golola will have over a month plus of relief before the second leg resumes in February following the Tuesday 1-3 win away to Simba on Bombo.

The manager was under intense critism after the champions recorded a string of poor performances including the latest 2-0 loss to Express Fc at Wamkulukuku on Boxing day.

Vipers goals came from Patrick Sembuya, case Farouk Miya and Erisa Sekisambu. Aggrey Kirya pulled one back for the soldiers before halfime stroke.

The victory pushes the Buikwe side to second place just a point below leaders KCCA FC who failed to beat Soana at Kavumba. Simba remains in the relegation zone with a dozen points.

Erisa Sekisambu and Farouk Miya’s strikes puts them among the top five marksmen in the division at third and fourth best with 7 and 5 goals respectively.
