Renowned Ugandan music producer, Diggy Baur can’t cease spitting fire at celebrated music legendary Jose Chameleone following their nasty brawl on Tuesday.

By BigEyeUg Team

The pace at which Ugandan South African-based businesswoman, Zari Hassan is muscling her hand into current affairs and politics, is strange.

It’s already a week off but the mother of five is cruising with an open mind stressing about issues that are affecting people in her home country, dumping her renowned socialite life.

This is drawing suggestions into people’s minds that the South Africa based Ugandan could be eyeing a political seat back home.

After splashing mud at People Power political movement supporters, Zari has now embarked on pleading to the government to lift the four months COVID-19 Pandemic lockdown.

As usual, the socialite took it to her social media and humbly requested the government to let boda bodas operate like they did before the lockdown as this would lower the crime rate in the country.

Zari Hassan

She also said it would be better if saloons and its related minor activities were allowed to reopen because of the lower income status viable to its beneficiaries for daily sustaining of their families.

Zari took time to bear thought about the currently stack businesses in the closed arcades, leading to commodities expiry despite the accumulating rent debts in favor of the landlords.

The CEO ‘Brooklyn schools’ also advised government to revise the curfew hours for the well-being of its citizens.

Plea to the Ugandan Government

It’s a humble request to lift the lockdown. Let bodas operate, the crime rate will rise with no income. Let saloons operate, aba saloon ne cutex bafuna mele yalelo. Reopen arcades, business people emali zabwe zitude, landlords babanja almost 4 months. Just to mention a few. Let curfew hours be revised as well. It’s a humble request Thank you in advance.

Dark days continue to hit Kampala City tycoon, Brian Kirumira aka Bryan White’s to the peak of struggling for his life.

Bryan who was admitted last month at Nakasero hospital after contracting some intestinal complications, has been discharged and taken back to his home notwithstanding his persistent illness.

Tycoon Bryan White

In a video that was posted by his Personal assistant at the same time Public Relations Officer, Mr. Isaac Katende (Kasuku), Bryan’s health proved still in a worrying state as he was moved out of the ambulance to his house while lying unconsciously on the hospital bed rail.

If you can recall last week, Bryan White’s blood samples were jetted to South Africa for detailed examination by experts but since then, the later status has been held confidential.

Apparently, the CEO Brian White Foundation has been asked to wait for the samples’ results at home.

However, the status for his Sexual harassment allegations as filed to the Parliamentary Human rights committee, remain unknown.

We wish him a quick recovery.
