Bryan White blocks road ahead of Museveni visit to Kasangati

City socialite, Bryan Kirumira alias Bryan White raised eyebrows and created a security situation on Sunday afternoon when he blocked Kalerwa roundabout on Kampala-Gayaza road ahead of the president’s visits to Kasangati town.    

According to eyewitnesses, Kirumira who was walking in the company of several youths, parked his vehicle in the middle of the road at Kalerwe and started walking on foot for about ten minutes before the president's convoy arrived.

Museveni was dashing from a fundraising at Namungoona Orthodox Church on his way to Kasangati to launch a book commemorating his contributions to the Muslim community in Uganda. Ibrahim Kasenge, a vendor at Kalerwe market, says Kirumira’s appearance at Kalerwa roundabout took security officers by surprise.  

Kasenge says some youths rushed thinking it was Bobi Wine who had showed up only to find Kirumira moving with his gang. Abdul Kaweesi, another eye witness says police officers fidgeted to remove Kirumira’s vehicle and clear the way for the president before UPDF officers arrived to arrest the situation.  

The president’s motorcade arrived minutes after the road was cleared by bikers who were showcasing various stunts. Kirumira’s conduct generated mixed reactions from the public with some, saying the socialite who is close to the president and is known for dishing out cash but with no known source of income, seems to be yearning for a comeback to the limelight after months of silence. 

“Some people have been all over social media saying that White when bankrupt. Now they are going to mute,” one of the residents who identified himself as King Ali said.   

Alex Lugemwa, a taxi driver at Kasangati stage criticized Kirumira's action, saying if it was another person who had blocked the road, he would have been dead or nursing wounds in hospital.  

“We have heard very many people caned by officers for their refusal to respect the president’s right of way but who is Bryan White to do this. What makes him exceptional?” asked Lugemwa.

Because of his self-importance vis-a-vis dwindling popularity, Mr. M7 has become a petty, busybody desperado; running around and presiding over every petty function in the villages.

E.g..because a week ago the firebrand, Orthodox Church Bishop spat fire over police brutality, repression and human rights abuse, Mr. M7 panicked and had to donate handsomely Shs.300 million towards the construction of the Orthodox Cathedral.

But I wish it was his personal money not our tax sweat and blood, which he dishes out with arrogance (without acknowledging Ugandans who sacrifice so much).

In other words, in spite of donating such huge sums of monies to the Churches, and Mosque, he will end up in a rock bottom hell.

But this Bryan Black, who thinks he has arrived because he closely identifies with Mr. M7; is playing into hands of of the Devil. He will one day these day get mauled.

In other words, whoever now brags and identifies with Mr. M7's arrogance, mocks Ugandans in their unemployment, poverty and hopelessness.

Lakwena, thanks!

This kind of action MUST be performed through out the country whenever Museveni imposes himself any where!

Just tribal leaders bringing down the tribalistic system & UNITY of Ugandans will block Museveni from entering any zone in the country!

The outside world is waiting for Ugandans to UNITE & take back their country or we will be outsiders ignored by the rest of the world for good as the country formed by tribal lands belongs to us & not to Museveni!

Not even French government donated tax money for rebuilding Nôtre Dame, but is happy donnations are coming from all over the world! Nôtre Dame brings lots of money to government through tourisme, to French government!

Why does Museveni own tax money, enslave a people who give him shelter & why do Ugandans allow this?

Ugandans do remember the Etyptian standing & blocking military tanks? Was he crushed?

A country belongs to the people & Uganda situation is even easier to handle as Museveni has no tribal land in it; all our people have to do is bring down the tribalistic system & UNITE to block & force him out!

How long will it take for Museveni to leave once he is surrounded, blocked in UNITY?

Will police/army go with Museveni then, will he go with tribal lands, tax money...?

Why is Museveni still tribalistically ruling Uganda, when our people must know no outsider will say a word against the demon as it's Ugandans the tribalists & Museveni only takes advantage of it?

WADADA roger, understood, but,

Will Museveni arrest a UNITED people of Uganda & make the country open prison?

Why is Museveni prefered to even Independent Tribal States?

Why do Ugandans prefer Museveni as chief tribal leader who controls tribal land riches, when they could just live & manage tribal land riches independently & just live well?

We have heard, seen and suffered very many people caned by officers for their non refusal to respect the president’s right of way but who is Bryan White to do this.

What makes him exceptional is his connections to the powers that be of this country. But I will advise Brian White that one day it will not be the same nonsense he is doing today and the earlier you make way the better option.

As Uganda prepares asylum for Al Bashir of Sudan, Rwanda should be doing so Museveni as sure as day light follows the night.
