Balaam Successfully ‘Ties’ The Rain After Cashing In 500M

After experiencing heavy rains and chilly windy conditions for the past one month, many Ugandans especially those in the opposition have been hoping that today’s highly guarded swearing in ceremony would be interrupted by the usual down pours Kampala has been experiencing.

Notable NUP supporters like Viboyo of Swang Avenue even came out early this morning and prayed that it rains cats and dogs for the ceremony not to take place.

Perhaps after reading many posts from the NUP supporters wishing the ceremony to flop courtesy of the heavy rains rain, Balaam came out and assured all NRM supporters to stay firm as he had ordered his gods to tie the rains.

It is alleged that Balaam was given over 500 Million to try and tie the rains in the sky, a duty he has successfully executed.

The veteran events organizer even went on his official Facebook page and bragged how his gods (the gods of the bachwezi) wouldn’t allow the rain to pour on such an important day.

”DON’T BE INTIMIDATED WITH FAKE WEATHER FORECAST, NO RAIN TILL AFTER OUR EVENT IN KOLOLO WE ARE DECEDENT’S OF ABA CHWEZI & WE ARE A BANYAKITARA . MZEE GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR 2ND LAST TERM” Balaam posted before giving an assurance that Kampala will have normal weather today ”NO RAIN TILL AFTER OUR EVENT IN KOLOLO . WAMA MZEE FUGA PAKA PAKA 2ND LAST TERM BEGINS TODAY . KYAWA
Balaam Barugahara Ateenyi

Mean while Ugandan security operations have ramped up around the capital ahead of Today’s inauguration of President Yoweri Museveni.  That includes tight security around the home of opposition leader Bobi Wine, who accused the government of fraud in January’s election. The security measures seem to be a warning to the opposition from authorities.

It’s a beehive of activity for security personnel ahead of Today’s swearing-in ceremony for Museveni. Kampala streets are guarded by foot patrols of soldiers, rooftop snipers, artillery pieces, armored vehicles and riot police.
