UPDF Brigadier, Kasirye Gwanga, has threatened to come after former Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, should he dare leak cabinet secrets as promised.

Addressing press in Arua on Tuesday, Mbabazi threatened to disclose Cabinet secrets if provocations against him continue despite being bound by the Official Secrets Act.

“Even now, I am not disclosing any secrets that came to me by way of my office. Not yet in anyway. I feel bound by them, these provocations notwithstanding,” he is quoted as saying.

“But if these provocations continue, I will say it (what transpired in Cabinet).”

Mbabazi said he is nolonger bound by Cabinet collective responsibility saying it was not true that all members of Cabinet are in agreement with all decisions of Cabinet but once decisions are made, it is a requirement that there is Cabinet responsibility.

Amama said he was surprised by President Yoweri Museveni who has always praised his work ethic is now claiming he can’t hand power to Mbabazi for lack of a mission.

Museveni said he sacked Mbabazi for telling lies that he [the president] was grooming his son, Brig Muhoozi Kainerugaba, to succeed him as president.

Speaking in Fort Portal recently, Mbabazi told Batooro to demand for a report following the death of Brig Noble Mayombo.

On Thursday 27 April 2007, Brigadier Noble Mayombo felt unwell and was admitted to Kololo Hospital, a small private hospital on Kololo Hill.

He was diagnosed with Acute pancreatitis, a sudden inflammation of the pancreas, which causes the organ to leak its enzymes into the surrounding tissues and organs, leading the pancreas and surrounding organs to start digesting themselves (autodigestion).

The next day, his condition having worsened, he was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit at International Hospital Kampala.

His condition deteriorated further and on Sunday 29 April 2007, comatose, on life-support systems, he was flown to Agha Khan Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya.

Museveni gave permission for the presidential Gulfstream IV-SP to be used to fly the Brigadier from Entebbe to Nairobi.

On Tuesday 1 May 2007 at 3.00PM local time, Noble Mayombo died at Agha Khan Hospital in Nairobi, due to complications of acute pancreatitis.

At the time of his death, he was only forty two years old.

Responding to the question of Mayombo’s death in Arua town, Museveni said his former trusted cadre had died of natural causes.

Museveni said Mayombo’s family had been given the report on their son’s death, contrary to the picture that Amama thought to paint.

Gwanga warns

Brig Kasirye says if Amama dares leak any secrets, he will be arrested.

Kasirye told Pan-African Pyramid founder, Andrew Irumba, in a chit-chat at his Makindye home all government officials are bound by law not to reveal any government secrets.

“Amama has to spend 50 years outside government for him to reveal its secrets, short of that we shall arrest him, period!” Kasirye warned.

“What he is talking now is total crap, he is just a civilian who worked with us but he didn’t learn anything in the military junta.”

The soldier added: “I can tell you this is not a Museveni-Amama affair, you are dealing with the security of our country. Does he know how many people died in the struggle? Did he loose a brother in the struggle like me?”

Kasirye is the same soldier who said the former Internal Affairs minister, the late General Aronda Nyakairima, had been killed over immigration scandals and that the army would avenge his death.
