{UAH} Seeking Work in Rwanda Declared Illegal as Two Female Ugandans are Deported

Friends

 

Not new it has happened every day as Ugandans allow the Allan Barigye’s to run, piss, dictate, but attack Ugandans in UAH. And you know, Rwandans would have never harvested Uganda this cheaply but when society builds its self with weak minds, minds without nationalism, minds without the ability to assess the damage done to its country, minds like Peter Simon Okurut and Mayimuna Kenyi that fail to create solutions from their own country, but look for cheap solutions. Rwandans like Allan Barigye become the cheapest solution, for from time memorial The Barigye’s are hitchhikers that walk into your country, your forum, for you have left the God Damn door open. That opening can happen in very many ways, stupidity as the case of Uganda being number one.

 

And it remains interesting that the Barigye’s remain the greatest infestation in East Africa for example, yet they do not run Kenya, they do not run Tanzania and they do not run any other African country. Why they only run Uganda? Because Uganda degree holders like Peter Simon Okurut use them as their defense against fellow Ugandans. Remain in this forum and watch how Okurut attacks Rwanda for treating Ugandans this way. Nope do not hold your breath for it is not Rwandans that have been mistreated. Had it been Rwandans deported out of Uganda,  Peter Simon Okurut would have ran out of firkin streets naked screaming how this is so firkin un African.

Seeking Work in Rwanda Declared Illegal as Two Female Ugandans are Deported

The formerly thriving Katuna border is now a ghost area on account of Rwanda's closure of the border.

 

Authorities in Rwanda have declared as illegal, Ugandans seeking work in their country as the small East African country deported two female Ugandan nationals over the same.

The two Ugandans identified as Birungi Monique, 25 and Kansiime Lillian, 26, both residents of Nyarutuntu Subcounty in Ntungamo district, were arrested on April 14 at Kibuye in Rwanda and later detained at Burera district in the Northern part of the country.

The duo would later on Tuesday 18 April, at around 6pm be dumped at Katuna border post with a deportation note referring to them as ‘prohibited immigrants.’

“Take note that you are declared a prohibited immigrant in Rwanda within the meaning of Articles 12 and 15 of law 57/2018 of 13/08/2018 on Immigration and Emmigration in Rwanda,” reads the note by the Rwanda National Intelligence and Security Service.

The youthful female Ugandans who by press time had proceeded home, were strangely referred to as male in the note seen by this news website.

“I thought just as many Rwandans live and work in Uganda, I could also work in Rwanda but I am happy to be free from Rwanda security and to be back home,” Kansiime Lillian said when contacted by SoftPower News.

Kigali’s decision to deport Ugandans seeking employment in Rwanda violates several treaties and agreements ratified by East African Community Member States that provide for free movement of persons, labor and services amongst themselves.

Rwandan authorities have in the past shot dead dozens of Ugandan traders who travel to their country for trade and visiting relatives. Many of these Ugandans are falsely accused of being smugglers. They have also shot Ugandan nationals within Uganda.

In January this year, a Ugandan, Teojen Ndagijimana, aged 26, was shot dead by Rwandan Defence force (RDF) in Kumugu Trading Centre in Musanze District inside Rwanda, about three kilometres from the Uganda border.

Other Ugandans who have been shot dead by Rwandan forces are Alex Nyesiga, 32, who was killed in May last year together with a Rwandan national as they entered Rwanda from Uganda.

On November 9, two other Ugandans Job Ebyarishanga and Bosco Tuheirwe, both residents of Rukiga District near the border, were shot dead about 1km inside Rwanda. Rwanda police later claimed the deceased were smuggling raw tobacco into the country.

The killed Ugandans and Rwandans are never tried by any Rwandan court of law but shot at.

It should be noted that Tuesday’s developments happened amid the ongoing efforts to mend the relations between Kampala and Uganda.

Relations became frosty in February 2019 when Rwanda closed its border with Uganda at Katuna in February last year, stopping movement of goods and people from either country. It would later bar Rwandan nationals from crossing to Uganda by road through Katuna border citing mistreatment in Rwanda.

However, Rwandans who travel to Uganda by air through Entebbe are not stopped by the Rwandan authorities.

Ugandan authorities on the other hand said that while Rwandans are welcome to Uganda as always, the country will not tolerate comprising of its national security. A number of Rwandans were arrested inside the territory of Uganda and charged for kidnapping Rwandan refugees and asylum seekers and illegally repatriating them to Rwanda, among other security related charges.

Uganda hosts more than one million refugees including Rwandan refugees who have over the recent years left the country in thousands.

Uganda’s open-door policy to refugees is hailed by the United Nations (UN) as the most progressive in the world.

{UAH} Pompeo broke ethics rules by asking his staff to do personal errands, internal watchdog finds

April 16, 2021 at 7:43 p.m. EDT

Former secretary of state Mike Pompeo broke federal ethics rules when he and his wife asked staffers to book restaurant reservations, take care of his dog, go on shopping trips and perform a wide array of other personal errands that did not pertain to official business, according to the State Department's Office of the Inspector General.

The internal watchdog report, released Friday, concluded that the Pompeos made more than 100 requests that "appeared to be personal in nature" and violated regulations. The report did not recommend any punishment for Pompeo, as he no longer works in the department. But it said the department should set up a new system for staffers to report such violations by government employees.

Pompeo, a close ally of former president Donald Trump, harbors future political ambitions and is often mentioned among other Republicans as a 2024 presidential contender.

In a statement, Pompeo rejected the report's assertions. "At no time did I, or my wife Susan, misuse taxpayer money or violate rules or ethical norms," Pompeo said. "This latest IG report is yet another attempt to slander me and worse, my wife by our own government."

The former top diplomat's lawyer, William Burck, criticized the report, saying it revealed "bias" on the part of the authors.

Pompeo and his wife, who often traveled with him on official State Department business, made requests to a political appointee and other staffers in his office to run errands such as "picking up personal items, planning events unrelated to the Department's mission, and conducting such personal business as pet care and mailing personal Christmas cards," the report said.

The Pompeos asked staffers to make "restaurant reservations for personal lunches and dinners with Pompeo family members or friends" at least 30 times, the report says. It also says a State Department employee was asked to book two hair salon appointments for Susan Pompeo; another employee appeared to help their son get a discount for a hotel, the report says.

The internal watchdog office, charged with investigating alleged corruption and wrongdoing, had a notably strained relationship with Pompeo ever since he orchestrated the firing of the office's longtime leader, Steve Linick, last May and called him a "bad actor" who was not a team player. Linick was succeeded by Stephen Akard, who served less than three months after coming under congressional scrutiny for alleged conflicts of interest and close ties to Vice President Mike Pence. Matthew Klimow succeeded Akard, who also left after roughly three months resulting in the promotion of another acting IG, Diana Shaw.

The State Department did not weigh in on the specific findings of the report, but said it accepts its recommendations.

"The department appreciates the work of the Office of Inspector General, and, as the report notes, concurs with all the recommendations and will proceed to implement them," a department spokesperson said in a statement.

The IG's findings were first reported by Politico.

{UAH} THE INCREASING NUMBER OF JOB SCAMS.

THE INCREASING NUMBER OF JOB SCAMS.

By Dr. Ssekyanzi Bob a.k.a Sente Ewoma

Let me start off with a disclaimer! I am neither a recruiter nor HR Consultant.
About a month ago, there was a story in the newspapers about a recruitment company that had 'eaten' job applicants' money. Unfortunately, two of my friends were victims of the scam which was so organised that it would take an expert to smell a scam.

It started off with a professional well edited job advert that was designed in a format similar to that of job adverts in New Vision, only that this didn't run in the daily.
It was quickly shared in all whatsapp groups. 

The job advert claimed an urgent need of 38 entry level data entrants, 64 field assistants, 8 drivers, 6 cleaners and 18 security guards, it ended with the usual annotation of "send your CV, copy of academic documents to xxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com". They set the deadline for handing in applications to 7 days later, most probably not wanting to give the victims time to do their due diligence. 

A week later, they shortlisted about 700 candidates for interviews and told them to send copies of their national IDs plus paying a non-refundable registration fee of 200,000/= meant for securing each an "in-service code" (whatever that means). True to their word, they sent each a code which was a combination of arbitrary numbers which was supposed to be presented on the day of the interview.

A week before interview date, each was called by a 039XXXXXXX number and by someone who clained to be an "insider" of the company and gave them a deal. If each was to send the "insider" 1.25M, he would place them on the friendly interview boards with a guarantee to secure the job. He went further and told them the starting net salary of each position; data entrant-2.8M, field assistants-3.8M, drivers-1.3M, cleaners-700K. He made sure the financials made sense, bribe with 1.25M and earn 2.8M a month later. Many fell victim and gave in the 'kitu kidogo'.

The group had hired a residential house in Naguru, furnished it as an office with a board room plus receptionists to make it look like a legit organization.
They conducted the interviews in Naguru and proceeded to offer appointment letters to 200 successful individuals. Appointment letters were on premium headed papers with a stamp and a seal with eye-watering salaries plus allowances. They were scheduled for training which was to be paid for a fee of 250K which would cater for training material, uniforms, ID and letter of good standing from Interpol.
Looking at the salaries, everyone with an appointment letter paid the training fee, who wouldn't?.

The same 'insider' who offered them friendly interview boards proposed to them a deal of 300K for any one to be placed in a district of their choice for those who didn't want to wait for the randomization.

Fast forward, 2 weeks later on the scheduled day of training,they all made their way to Naguru at the 'head office' only to find an empty house with a neat "HOUSE FOR RENT" placard. When they tried calling the number on the placard, the land lord shocked them that the occupants had vacated the house 3 days prior. The police estimates the total amount obtained from the victims was upwards of 1.2 billion shillings

The most recent story is a well orchestrated heist in which more than 50 health workers were conned of $1,620 each with prospects of working as emergency COVID19 medical workers in one of the affluent international NGOs.
Definately, I did my quick maths and it hit me that the con artist had walked away with $81,000 the equivalent of 300M UGX

Well, the moral of the story is that before you share that juicy job advert in your professional, family, alumni groups, do a little background check because there are desperate jobless people out there who are looking for any ray of hope to land them a job.

For whatever reason, there is a tendency of people applying for jobs in secret without seeking counsel or opinions from their friends or family. Most probably, they want to surprise their kin when they land that good job.
If its too good to be true, most probably it is not true.

{UAH} THE WHITE SUPREMACISTS THAT PETER SIMON OKURUT HAS WARNED YOU ABOUT

Texas shooting suspect Stephen Broderick was ex-sheriff’s detective

Police, SWAT and medical personnel respond to a fatal shooting in the Arboretum area of northwest Austin.AP

The suspect in the Texas shooting that left three dead Sunday is a former sheriff’s office detective who had been charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, according to a report.

Stephen Nicholas Broderick, 41 — who is still being sought in the deadly shooting spree in Austin — retired from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office last year after being charged and jailed for allegedly molesting the girl, the Austin American-Statements reported.

Broderick was arrested by US Marshals on June 6, three days after the teenager reported that he assaulted her in a home in Elgin, Texas, the newspaper said at the time.

Broderick was ordered held on $100,000 bail in the case and placed on administrative leave without pay, the American-Statements said Sunday.

He was held in jail for 16 days before he posted a reduced bail amount of $50,000.

Broderick’s wife filed for divorce and obtained an order of protection after his arrest, according to court records reviewed by the outlet.

He resigned from his job as a detective with the sheriff’s office after his release.

Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon did not identify the three victims in Sunday’s shootings but described them as two women and a man.

Chacon said cops were called to the scene at 11:42 a.m. and found all three had been shot. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

He said the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police and the FBI have issued “shelter in place” orders in the area.

{UAH} FRIENDS WE HAVE A WISCONSIN TAVERN CHAOS

Sheriff: 3 dead, 2 wounded in shooting at Wisconsin tavern

an hour ago

Investigators confer during an investigation outside the Somers House Tavern, in Kenosha, Wis., Sunday morning, April 18, 2021. Authorities say several people were killed and a few were seriously wounded in a shooting early Sunday the tavern in Kenosha County in southeastern Wisconsin. (Deneen Smith/The Kenosha News via AP)

 

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Three people were killed and two were seriously wounded in a shooting at a busy tavern in southeastern Wisconsin early Sunday, sheriff’s officials said.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth said the suspect in the shooting at Somers House Tavern in Kenosha County is still at large, but that he believes the public is not in danger.

“We believe our suspect knew who he was targeting,” Beth said during a Sunday morning news conference. He asked that anyone with information about the shooting contact the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department. Kenosha is about 30 miles (50 kilometers) south of Milwaukee, not far from the Wisconsin-Illinois border.

The suspect had been asked to leave the bar, but returned and opened fire. Beth said shots were fired inside and outside the bar, which he described as “very busy” at the time. He left open the possibility that there was more than one suspect. He said he believed at least one handgun was used.

Officials were still working to determine the identities of the people who died. Beth said two people died at the scene. The third person hopped in a car with two other people, who moments later flagged down a police vehicle. The officer drove the victim to a hospital where that person was pronounced dead, Beth said.

The two people who were shot and wounded were taken to area hospitals. There may have been more people with less serious injuries, and the sheriff’s department has contacted local hospitals to find them, Beth said.

He said investigators are reviewing surveillance video from the scene. The tavern installed video cameras a couple of years ago, Beth said, but he didn’t know if the surveillance video is from the business.

Sgt. David Wright, sheriff’s department spokesman, said authorities are gathering evidence and are waiting for “tips and other information” before they release more details.

A man who lives near the bar, Peter Ploskee, told WLS-TV that he heard gun shots, looked out a window and saw “people running from the bar in every direction.”

“It was just chaos,” he said. “People are just running, people screaming.”

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers called it a “senseless tragedy” and said he and his wife are “thinking of the families and loved ones affected and the entire Kenosha community as they grieve and grapple with yet another tragic incident of gun violence.”

It was the latest in a recent string of shootings across the country, including the killings of eight people at a FedEx warehouse in Indianapolis on Thursday. Last month, four people were killed at an office shooting in California, eight people were fatally shot at massage businesses in the Atlanta area, and 10 died in gunfire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado.

The nearby city of Kenosha was the scene of serious unrest last summer, after police shot a young Black man, Jacob Blake, leaving him paralyzed. A white Illinois teenager was accused of fatally shooting two people during the Kenosha protests. Kyle Rittenhouse of Antioch is charged with homicide and attempted homicide in the Aug. 25 shootings. He has pleaded not guilty and says he fired in self-defense.
