Son of Uganda counterintelligence chief sentenced to 32 years in prison for the brutal murder of his 22-year-old girlfriend














Son of Uganda counterintelligence chief sentenced to 32 years in prison for the brutal murder of his 22-year-old girlfriend
Brian Bagyenda, the son a retired military officer Colonel Frank Kaka Bagyenda has been sentenced to 32 years in jail for the murder of his girlfriend, Enid Twijukye after he saw text messages she exchanged with another man.

Colonel Bagyenda, is a retired military officer in the Uganda People's Defence Forces and current Director General of the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) Uganda government's counter intelligence agency responsible for providing national security intelligence to Uganda's policy makers.

Bagyenda, a pharmacist was on Monday, February 17, 2020, convicted of murder by Justice Moses Kazibwe of the High Court in Kampala alongside his accomplices Innocent Bainomugisha, a-24-year-old cleaner and Vincent Rwahwire, a 28-year-old casual worker.

Enid Twijukye, a 22-year-old former student of Makerere University Business School (MUBs) was killed in January 2016 and body dumped in a swamp.

Enid had disappeared after having lunch with her family that day in Bweyogerere and was never seen home again. The following day her phones went off, prompting her mother, Esther Mirembe Nkoko to contact her other daughters about her whereabouts.

Police later recovered Twijukye’s decomposing body in Namanve forest, 11km away from the murder scene after the family had reported her missing. Bagyenda reportedly told the investigating officers at Jinja Road Police Station that his first statement about how his lover had robbed him of Shs4 million was not true.
“I killed her because I loved her so much that I could not allow her to get married to a Rastafarian. I learnt of her other man from the messages they were exchanging and what pissed me off mostly was Enid fixing a day to take the Rastafarian to meet her parents in Kiruhura instead of me,” he reportedly told cops,

Justice Kazibwe, among other things, said that Bagyenda was of sound mind when he killed his girlfriend.

According to him, this was evidenced when Bagyenda sent his maid to Kalerwe market, which is more distant from his home instead of Luzira, to buy him a bottle of soda before he increased the volume of the music system and drew down curtains to prevent anyone from seeing what was happening in the house.

Justice Kazibwe further noted that the evidence given by prosecution witnesses was enough to pin the other accomplices, Bainomugisha and Rwahwire for murder.

He said that it was clear the two participated in the gruesome murder since they did not report the crime to police after they were paid by Bagyenda. He convicted them before adjourning court proceedings for about an hour.

When court resumed, the prosecution side led by Ms Joan Keko and Mr Joseph Kyomuhendo, in their mitigating factors, asked court for a death penalty given the nature of the crime.

Prosecution noted that Twijukye, a university student at the time, had a bright future ahead of her. They further argued that police records indicated that there were thousands of homicide cases and therefore, the convicts deserved no mercy from court to send a signal to other would be offenders.

However, Bagyenda's lawyer, Mr Allan Sserulika contended that the murder cases referred to by prosecution had not been committed by his client and therefore, he deserved a lenient sentence since he was a first-time offender and had a mental illness at the time of the offence.

After weighing evidence from both sides and listening to the mitigating factors, the judge reasoned that prosecution had given enough evidence to show that Bagyenda had premeditated to kill his girlfriend from Januray 3, 2016.

According to the judge, disagreements in love relationships are a common occurrence and should not be reason for ending one’s life.
“Life is sacred to be taken in non-legal circumstances. The deceased was a young person responsible for assisting her family and had a future ahead but all these were cut short by the inconsiderate and criminal behaviors of the convicts,” he said before adding that Bainomugisha and Rwahwire could have avoided participation in committing murder.
“They are not are not robots to be ordered contrary to the submission of their lawyer who insisted that they acted under the command of A1 (Bagyenda). But I do not find this to be rare of the rarest cases meriting the death sentence. A custodial sentence is fitting in the circumstances considering all the mitigating factors,” Justice Kazibwe said before sentencing them to 32 years each.

Since they had been on remand for three years, the judge said their remand period would be reduced from their sentence of 32 years.
“However, all three can appeal within 14 days from the date of judgment,” Justice Kazibwe said.

"Blood ain't family" Tonto Dikeh says as she thanks her "big baby" for being there on her son's birthday












"Blood ain
Tonto Dikeh took to Instagram to thank her "big baby" for "all the love" he showed her son on his birthday.

This comes after her ex-husband took to Instagram on their son's birthday to claim Tonto Dikeh has kept him from seeing their son even though the court granted him access to King Andre with a nanny present. He said he's been kept from seeing his son under the guise that King Andre doesn't have a nanny (read here).

He added that King is his blood and no one can turn his face away from him. 

Afterwards, Tonto took to Instagram to thank and declare her love for Ahmed for all he's done for her and her son. Apparently taking a swipe at ex Oladunni Olakunle Churchill's statement that King is his blood, Tonto added that blood isn't always family.

She wrote: "God bless you Ahm, for loving us and taking care of us as a package... Ahm, today you showed me that blood AINT FAMILY... We love you big baby/Uncle Ahmed... From Kingy and I."

Also, apparently referencing Churchill's claim that he's been kept from King with the excuse that his son has no nanny to be present during his visit, Tonto wrote: "King's nanny and his adventure partner Dauda gave Kingy a really look present."

"Blood ain

In an earlier post that came before Churchill's birthday note to their son, Tonto referred to herself as King's mom and dad.

"#MR MOM... #MAMA D' PAPA... MAMABEAR... A MOTHER'S LOVE," She captioned a photo of herself taking 700 roses arranged as a teddy bear to her son.

She also wrote in an earlier post: "Thanks Ahmed for all the love towards my son... Thanks baby. We love you. Happy birthday our sonshine. From Uncle Ahmed and mummy."

'He isn't your prisoner or your property' - Super agent Mino Raiola hits back at Man. United boss Solskjaer for comments about his client Paul Pogba














Super star agent Mino Raiola, has come out to blast Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer in an explosive Twitter rant after Solskjaer made comments about his client Paul Pogba.

                                      

Pogba's desire to leave Manchester United has dominated media headlines the last two years and his relationship with the club hit a new low when he said he wanted a 'new challenge' during the summer transfer window.

Pogba signed from Juventus to Manchester United for a then world record fee of 80m pounds, and has played just eight games for Manchester United this season, with his last appearance coming on Boxing Day, as a persistent foot injury has kept him out of action.
                               
                                        

He and his agent Raiola have flirted with Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona in the past, but Manchester United have held firm to their asset declaring he isn't for sale, much to the ire of Pogba whose demeanor at times on the pitch cuts a forlorn figure.

His agent, Raiola, notoriously known for spiking the media to raise transfer fees and establish transfers for his players has always been in the news talking about Pogba and in a recent interview said Pogba will only stay at Man United beyond this season if the sporting project at the club is an ambitious one.


On Monday, Solskjaer said: “Paul is our player and not Mino’s. I haven’t sat down and told Paul to tell his agent what to say. I’ve not spoken to Mino, that’s for sure.”


Raiola, hearing of Solksjaer's comments, objected to Solskjaer saying Pogba was ‘our player’ and wrote a lengthy statement on social media slamming his choice of words. Raiola said Pogba is ‘not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s’ and that 'no one can own a human being for a long time in the UK'.


Posting three write ups on his Twitter handle; Raiola said;


 
“Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s. You cannot own a human being already for a long time in the UK or anywhere else.

“I hope Solskjaer do not want to suggest that Paul is his prisoner.

“But before Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said.

“I am a free citizen who can think and express my thoughts. Until now I was maybe too nice to him. Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul.

“I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about. At least if I was him I would.”


Apart from Pogba, Raiola's huge clientele includes Erling Braut Haaland, Zlatan Ibrahimovi?, Mario Balotelli, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Étienne Capoue, Blaise Matuidi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Matthijs de Ligt, Moise Kean, Lorenzo Insigne, Marco Verratti and Jesse Lingard . Raiola is among the richest sports agents in the world according to Forbes.

The north will destroy itself if it doesn’t change - Emir Sanusi

















The north will destroy itself if it doesn?t change - Emir Sanusi
The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi has warned that the northern region of the country will destroy itself if it doesn't change its ways. 

Speaking at a programme to commemorate the 60th birthday celebration of Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, the Kano monarch stated that repeating the same thing and expecting a different result shows that something is wrong.

Emir Sanusi who pointed out that the country is moving on, stated that real change can only come in the region if things are done differently.

He also averred that a day will come when there will be a constitutional amendment that addresses issues of quota system and federal character, because the rest of the country cannot continue educating their children who will remain unemployed because they come from the wrong state. 

He said; 

“It is almost correct now to say that, if you are seen as normal, if you are a governor in the north or a leader in the north, and you are seen as normal in the sense that you continue to do what your predecessors have been doing, doing the same thing, which has been normalised, then, there is something wrong with you. You are part of the problem, ” Sanusi said.
“The real change in the north will come from those who are considered mad people, because you look around and say if this is the way we have been doing things, and this is where we have ended up, maybe we need to do things differently.
“If the north does not change, the north will destroy itself. The country is moving on… If we don’t listen, there would be a day when there would be a constitutional amendment that addresses these issues of quota system and federal character.
“The  rest of the country cannot be investing, educating its children, producing graduates and then they watch us, they can’t get jobs because they come from the wrong state, when we have not invested in the future of our own children."

He also disclosed leaders from northern Nigeria can't afford to be happy when about 87 percent of poverty in Nigeria is in the region. 

Emir Sanusi added;

“Nobody who is a leader in northern Nigeria today can afford to be happy,” Sanusi said.
“You cannot be happy about 87 percent of poverty in Nigeria being in the north. You can’t be happy with millions of northern out-of-school children. You can’t be happy with nine states in the north contributing almost 50 percent of the entire malnutrition burden in the country.
“You can’t be happy with the Boko Haram problem. You can’t be happy with all the issues.
“So, we wish Nasir a happy birthday, but we do not want him to be happy as a leader. Because you are happy when you think you have reached a state of delivering and taking your people to where you want them to be.”

Emir Sanusi also commended Governor El-Rufai for addressing the main issue in his state which is education. 

He said; 

“If you look at what Nasir is doing in Kaduna, with 40 percent of his budget in education, that is the only thing that is going to safe the north. I know that, when we say these things, they don’t go down well."

Father of two and his four colleagues burnt to death in horrific road crash in Edo (photos)














Father of two and his four colleagues burnt to death in horrific road crash in Edo (photos)
Five members of staff of Okomu Oil plc, in Edo State were on Friday evening burnt to death in a road crash that occurred along Benin/Iguobazuwa road, in Ovia South-West local government area of the State.

The accident occurred when the bus conveying the victims from Extension 2 farm of the firm to the head office of the company at Okomu community, rammed into a lorry that crossed the road.

Two others were said to have sustained serious injuries in the ghastly accident and  are said to be currently receiving treatment.

According to an eyewitness, Max Iyase, they could not render assistance to the victims, as the flame was ferocious. He identified one of the victims as Elvis Odia, a married father of two.
"Yesterday experience on the road was so horrific as I drove into the scene of the accident along Benin Iguobazuwa road which had many people burning inside the vehicles. I met a crowd of commuters pulling over a distance from the spot of the burning vehicles by Iguomo village, before Ovia river. My wife and I quickly ran to join others trying to rescue victims from the vehicles, but it was too late. The flame was so ferocious that no one dared to go closer. I supported in salvaging one SUV from being consumed after the owner jumped out and escaped to save his life. We succeeded in removing the car and putting out the fire that had barely just burnt part of it.
People burnt beyond recognition inside the bus while some were burnt laying dead on the ground.
I never knew who the people were until I got home later in the day and received a call that some of them were our relatives and some friends travelling down from Benin to Okomu. I could not believe my ears until so many people came and confirmed the story.
The accident had resulted from two vehicle on head collision. There was a bush fire burning blazingly on both sides of the road. The smoke was thick and another timber lorry(agbegi) was in front of the tipper lorry yet with heavy smoke bluring the visibility. As the tipper lorry tried to move away from near the bush side to the centre of the road because of the fire, the oncoming bus conveying the passengers was also fogged by the heaving emission of the timber lorry. They then had a head on collision and fire sparked and picked up instantly, killing all occupant except one.
May their souls rest in peace. Amen."

Meanwhile, an official of the company who confirmed the death of their staff, described the incident as sad day for workers in the company.
“We are yet to confirm the number of our personnel involved but we have confirmed five. Two are in the hospital,” he said.

Donald Trump slams Obama for ‘trying to take credit’ for US economic boom














Donald Trump slams Obama for ?trying to take credit? for US economic boom
Donald Trump blasted his predecessor Barack Obama for claiming that he's responsible for creating legislation that caused economic booms in both of their administrations.

On Monday, Obama tweeted a photo of what appeared to be his signature at the foot of the Recovery Act, a stimulus package passed in February 2009.

"Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history," Barack Obama wrote.

And Trump took to Twitter to slam Obama's claim as a "con job."

He tweeted: "Did you hear the latest con job? President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration. He had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing. NOW, best jobs numbers...."

In a subsequent tweet, Trump decried the economic recovery under Obama as the weakest since the Great Depression of 1929. He also asserted that the US would be in dire financial straits had the Democratic party won the 2016 presidential election.

He wrote: "....ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
