An intern who preferred anonymity told Chimpreports that many of their colleagues decided to lay down their tools on last Friday protesting the delayed salaries.

“This strike started on Friday with a few participating workers but after noticing that there was no hope of being paid our arrears in time, all of us have decided to join the strike.”

These students have not been involved in chaotic actions at the hospital because they have decided to stay away from the hospital by staying in their hostels.

The students who have went on strike are those from Makerere University School of Health sciences and those from Mulago Paramedical School.

The recording was made by Police as Gen Kayihura listened to NRM youth mobilisers including Alex Kasirivu whom he offered Shs 1m as “facilitation” to strengthen cooperation.

Later, the recordings were submitted to a special desk for scrutiny.

During that process, Boteri stole the recordings which he handed over to the Prime Minister’s wife, Jacqueline Mbabazi.

It is suspected the detective was bribed by Mbabazi’s loyalists to steal the tapes.

The leaked recordings are part of evidence prepared by Police to pin the NRM youth and possibly Jacqueline.

An investigation has been underway since the recordings leaked last week until evidence pointed at a one Boteri.

Boteri was picked and detained at Special Investigations Unit (SIU) in Kireka, according to police sources.

The controversial spy tapes

In the recordings, Kayihura wonders why Jacqueline Mbabazi, who is the wife to embattled Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, chose to be “our enemy.”

He affirms that Ms Mbabazi was part of the “system” until recently when her behaviour became unpredictable.

The youth member tells Kayihura that he can fix the situation before the IGP dismisses him: “Ok, we will stay in touch; we will give you more facilitation to do the work.”

The tapes come hardly a week when Ms Mbabazi threatened to publish recordings of Kayihura “coaching” youth to frame Mbabazi, former military intelligence boss, Brig James Mugira and Internal Affairs Minister Aronda Nyakairima as supporting the Premier’s 2016 presidential bid.

According to police officials, paying informers is part of Kayihura’s work in gathering intelligence information.

“If you have listened to those recordings, Kayihura expresses shock that Ms Mbabazi chose to leave the system. This is reverse psychology in interviewing informers. He intended to get as much information and clarifications as possible,” said a police source.

“In fact, because of Kayihura’s friendly attitude the informer makes some proposals but the IGP simply responds: ‘Ok, let’s keep in touch and work together (meaning he is ready to receive more information from the chap).”
