KAMPALA, UGANDA: The bitter fall-out between Rubaga North MP Hon. Abubaker Kawalya and KCCA Lord Councillor for Rubaga Hon. James Mubiru has taken heights, and seems not likely to end soon, the DailyExpress understands.

In a cold war ongoing between the two leaders, who both subscribe to the opposition National Unity Platform – NUP, this website has exclusively learnt that MP Kawalya has is seemingly losing the battle of blackmailing the ailing NUP councilor, after a recent exposure of his fake doctored letter that sparked off the baseless allegations.

The genesis of all this started when Kawalya doctored fake allegations against Mubiru showing how the LC5 councilor wrote a letter to Prime Minister Robinah Nabanjja requesting for financial support towards his medical bills in Nairobi.

However, after a thorough undercover investigation, our sources have learnt that Kawalya doctored the letter using a Nasser-Road-based company we’ve identified as “Print Me Now” and one of the MP’s one companions only identified as Ssebuliba being the one who made the fake letter.

According to our undercover snoop, the legislator went ahead and funded different media channels with Next Media’s NBS TV and Nile Post, Pearl FM being the headliners to publicize the blackmail story although some media houses and online channels dismissed the funds well-knowing that it was being done out of malice.

The vibrant Mubiru didn’t wait for the blackmail to put him down but rather sent a message through his Facebook page Hon James Mubiru and Twitter account cursing Kawalya Abubaker for the attempts to cause damages to his name.

Determined to pull him down, Kawalya later embarked on creating another story through News Editor Online blog and other digital media outlets alleging that Mubiru was not ill and admitted to Aga Khan hospital as he had earlier told reports. It is estimated that he injected about 30m into this project

Further reports confirm how this move also failed to blackmail after finding out mainstream media, NUP party, and Mubiru’s family confirmed to reports of his hospitalization admitted on patient number 1-32456, not only in Nairobi but also in Lubaga hospital and Mulago hospital.

Dying in his invented movie, he (Kawalya) could not swallow his humiliation but went on to push the blame to his team that has been plotting plans to blackmail Mubiru on what is termed as Failed Mission.

Reports indicate that the former Kawalya (the former KCCA Speaker – now MP for Rubaga North MP is playing these malicious games intended to tarnish Mubiru’s name whom corridors say is envisaging his seat come 2026.
