Things fall apart: Andrew Mwenda’s brutal take on ISO chief Col. Kaka’s shock sacking

Published

on


President Yoweri Museveni has planted the sharp axe on the neck of Internal Security Organisation boss Col. Frank Kaka Bagyenda.

President Museveni has gone ahead to appoint Charles Oluka as the new ISO chief and deputised by Emma Katabazi.

Experienced journalist Andrew Mwenda took to social media to weigh in on Col. Kaka’s sacking. Mwenda links Kaka’s dismissal to safe houses and cooking up intelligence reports.

The former scribe explained: “ISO Director General Kaka Bagyenda has been fired forthwith. This follows after President Kaguta Museveni sent SFC to open his safe houses and release the victims of his torture leading to a shootout! Kaka has also been fabricating intelligence, polluting the air.”

He narrated: “As I said on last year, we Ugandans did not need Western human rights pretenders to fight evil in our system. Kaka forgot that the ideological foundations of the NRM/UPDF/ISO stand in opposition to the thuggish methods he used. So his fall was inevitable and had to be domestic.”

“His worst contribution to our intelligence system was to destroy whatever good that had built in ISO, and then running torture chambers euphemistically called safe houses where he brutalized his victims with the barbarity of Idi Amin’s goons. But all is well that ends well,” Mwenda brutally argued.
