“She has already admitted possessing our recordings so she will have to explain to court where she obtained the stolen police property. We will prove beyond reasonable doubt that we are the owners of the original recordings which she claims to have played for the President, http://cineaverde.com/wp-includes/class.wp-dependencies.php ” said a top police source.

“At first we thought she had her own tapes but this was not true. Ms Mbabazi told the nation lies that she had evidence to implicate the IGP.”

Ms Mbabazi recently told a newspaper in an exclusive interview that she had recorded Police boss Gen Kale Kayihura as he coached NRM mobilisers to implicate Mbabazi in a conspiracy plot to challenge Museveni in 2016.

While standing for election is not a criminal case, Kayihura recently said the interrogation and arrest of NRM youth leaders perceived to be supporters of Mbabazi was part of a wider investigation into reports that “individuals associated with the NRM party are going around the country securing or attempting to secure signatures, using methods that amount to criminality such as using bribery or on the basis of falsehoods.”

He said police received reports of a group of people moving around collecting signatures from people in Kampala, falsely claiming that the intention was to take them to the President so that the longstanding promises the President are, at last, fulfilled.

“Others were paid money (actually bribed) ranging from shs 50,000 to 500,000 depending on their respective status in the NRM,” said the IGP.

Ms Mbabazi retaliated by claiming Kayihura “and his lumpens have been coaching these youth to make certain allegations and I even had a chance to record him. I have recorded him. In this recording which I am going to make publicly available, the IGP and one fellow, Sebina, were coaching a youth called Kasirivu from Kayunga District. I have played this recording for the President to listen.”

How tapes leaked

Chimpreports has since established that Police recorded NRM youth mobilisers as they chatted with IGP Kale Kayihura on how Mbabazi’s family has been splashing money and sending emissaries to grassroots in a covert operation to defeat Museveni during the NRM delegates conference.

Kayihura never takes records when meeting members of the public.

However, when listening to informers, the IGP reportedly records the conversation or asks an aide to take notes.

By the fact that he chose to record his conversations with the NRM youth mobilisers, Kayihura was not taking the matter lightly.


As part of the investigations, Kayihura asked a special team of experts to review the recordings with the view of prosecuting all suspects involved in bribery acts.


It’s after the evaluation of evidence that Police decided to take the matter to the DPP who later sanctioned charges against pro-NRM youth for reportedly engaging in acts of criminality.


Sources say the Police intended to tender the recordings as evidence against the NRM youth.


“Ms Mbabazi as a surety of the NRM youth was well aware that making public comments about a case in which she is a party is not allowed by law. We will ask court to take a robust action against her – she is trying to obstruct justice.”

President Museveni and Mbabazi have been struggling for power ahead of the 2016presidential elections.

While Mbabazi has denied mobilizing for Presidency, Museveni’s strategists believe he means the opposite.
