Oulanyah’s burial budget causes outrage
Business has not been anywhere close to usual in the Pearl of Africa ever since the death of the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanyah Lokori.
Yesterday, reality continued to manifest as the body of the fallen speaker arrived at Entebbe International airport days after citizens had been kept waiting ever since the fallen speaker breathed his last during medication in Seattle, USA.
A series of controversies have happened since the speaker’s death but his Shs2.5 billion burial budget caused the most outrage.
However, the authorities have since slashed the budget to Shs1.8 billion.
Meanwhile, Oulanyah’s body has been handed over to Aplus services. There will be a service at his home on Sunday. On Tuesday, his body will be at parliament before being taken to Kololo on Wednesday. His burial is slated for Friday.
Court orders Teddy Naluswa to return Pastor Bugingo’s belongings
The high court family division has ordered Teddy Naluswa to surrender cards for three cars, seven land titles located in Wakiso, Mukono, and Kampala, their marriage certificates, and pay PastorAloysious Bugingo’s costs he wasted in the divorce case file.
According to the report filed by a local newspaper, the judge was convinced by Bugingo’s proof through his affidavit, which was filed in court to support the application, that the said documents were very instrumental in prosecuting his divorce case before the court.
It was reported that Justice Joseph Murangira insisted that Naluswa knew very well where the said documents were kept because Bugingo left them with her when he walked out of their matrimonial house in Kitende Wakiso in 2016.
The Judge also refused Naluswa’s defense filed in court in her affidavit, seeking more time to look for the said documents, claiming that she is still sick.
