The business community and legal fraternity have hailed President Yoweri Museveni for standing firm and ‘eliminating’ dealers from his cabinet.
The President dropped 23 ministers and among them is ‘Mr 30%’ who earned himself from negotiating deals and walking with 30% commission of the money.
Those known to him say that Ugandans who failed to raise the required 30% wouldn’t be rendered service.
This minister is very conversant with the law and would use the same law to squeeze and exploit needy Uganda.
He is filthy rich, owns expansive skyscrapers in Kampala City, Western Uganda in his home district and in Mbarara.
He was several times named in scandals for grabbing properties in Kampala, but would use his influence to elude justice.
However, with news that he was axed, several top lawyers and businessmen/women took to social media to celebrate his sacking.
“I wish His Excellency had done this long ago, we would be far but nevertheless, it has finally come and for us who have suffered are jubilating because imagine 30 per of Shs100 million. We hope we shall meet in the field with him” one lawyer posted in a Whatsup group.
The said minister is further said to have sidelined some people but had a few clique of others he was using to run his errands. The said minister is fairly young and has been around Kampala for sometimes.
Every single deal wouldn’t go past him without him demanding for a cut- with no regard for investors, youth starting up, foreigners supporting Ugandans- it was all for his pocket.
Some of the deals he made include shs 1.6b and $48,294 in the recent past.
Reports coming from Turkey concerning singer-cum-actress Evelyn Lagu’s health condition reveal that the singer’s body won’t support a kidney transplant.
According to a video that she shared on her online platforms, Lagu explained that after the doctors took tests of her, she was informed that a transplant surgery would leave her lifeless in the theatre or she wouldnt live beyond two years.
Evelyn Lagu was then advised to stay on the dialysis medication in order to live healthily for more years on earth.

At the Ministry of Health, hundreds of people line up standing, others sitting, as the line snakes its way to the vaccination tent. Last week on Friday Sevo announced the second 42-days lock down to encounter the spread of the pandemic.
Since then, various people have opened up how they have lost their loved ones. Notably media personalities like Lucky Mbabazi and Flavia Tumusiime have all had a share of Covid-19’s wrath but manage to heal.
Some like MC Kats and NTV The Beat presenter, Dagy Nyce have already lost relatives.

In a space of 14 days my family lost two unties, sisters to my father but what i never shared is that he – my father was also fighting for dear life on oxygen when all of this was happening. We were advised not to share with him what had happened to his sisters at Mulago & Bugolobi medical Centre. Until he was out of the situation he was in.
