KCCA Prepared for Cup Final; Kabugo Sidelined

News reaching ChimpLyf is that singer Desire Luzinda is getting married! To whom, more about we can’t tell yet, this web but she did confirm the development on Friday on social media.

She posted pictures of herself trying on a wedding gown with comments that expressed a blend of delight and excitement.

“God has plans for everyone. Am surprised this is happening sooner than I thought. Do not despair, his plan for u is happening soon,” she noted.

Desire had a few days earlier, after she was photographed with Buganda Katikkiro Peter Mayiga in the US, asked her fans to wait for some really big news.
The former Prime Minister and Leader of Government Business in Parliament, site Amama Mbabazi did not appear at the State of the Nation Address by President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday at Serena Conference Center.

Mr Mbabazi was expected to attend the session, website like this by virtue of being a Member of Parliament representing Kinkiizi West.

The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga who made communications prior to inviting the President to give his speech, did not mention any apologies from Mbabazi for not appearing at the event.

Our sources at both Clerk and Speaker`s offices say the former PM didn’t tender in any writing giving reasons for his absence.

“We didn’t receive any official communication from him indicating that he would not attend the State of the Nation Address,” a source from one of the above two offices said.


ChimpReports has however learnt that Mbabazi who was also ejected from the ruling National Resistance Movement party, is out of the country for a yet to be determined business.

Since his dramatic sacking from the executive and NRM, Mbabazi has never attended any national function presided over by President Museveni.

Fascinatingly, Mbabazi who has never stepped foot where Museveni is with the exception of a Church function in his home district Kanungu, recently joined the president`s number one challenger and critic, Dr. Kiiza Besigye during a Parliamentary Committee meeting debating electoral reforms.

Our several attempts to get a comment from Mbabazi were futile as he didn’t pick our calls though the number appeared to be roaming.
