Museveni vows never to hand over Kayihura to the US
Over the weekend, President Museveni gave his insight on USA’s sanctions to his once blue-eyed man, General Kale Kayihura. Museveni questioned opposition’s excitement about the issue before revealing that Uganda is in great position to handle most of her issues especially when it comes to those who are suspected to have made mistakes.
“For Kale or other Ugandans who are suspected to have made mistakes, they will always be handled in Uganda. That is why we shall never handover any Ugandan to, for instance, the Court in The Hague- the ICC. Kale is already facing whatever mistakes he is suspected to have committed in our Courts,” Museveni explained.
Museveni’s only disappointment would be hearing that Kayihura abandoned Uganda to go and make investments in the USA.
MC Kats lands greener pastures after sack

Former Buganda minister, Rajni Tailor arrested over bounced cheques
Tycoon and former Buganda Kingdom finance minister Rajni Tailor was on Saturday locked up by Police over bounced cheques. Tailor is accused by some members of the Indian community of failing to pay back the accumulated amount of money they lent to him.
It is believed that the money is in hundreds of millions. In an effort to pay the debts, Tailor reportedly issued a number of cheques but they all bounced. The members reported to police who swung into action by locking up the businessman.
This is the second time that the businessman is being held over bounced cheques, having been arrested over similar charges in March this year.
Museveni lashes out at Ronald Mayinja for using music to “spread lies”
On Friday last week, Catherine Kusasira’s “Tears of a woman” concert at Serena Conference Hall became very political after fellow artiste Ronald Mayinja sang a song titled “Bizeemu” in the presence of President Museveni.
The song accuses the NRM government of perpetrating human rights violations against the people of Uganda in a similar fashion like the past regimes.
However, even before Mayinja’s performance, the concert had already taken on political undertones given Kusasira’s open support for the regime.
While addressing the revellers, President Museveni cautioned musicians against misusing their talent to spread lies. He urged them to use their God-given talent to promote peace in the country.
