Ugandan politician admits to have repossessed ambulance donation after losing election



A female politician in Uganda has electrified the internet when she outright confessed to repossessing an ambulance she had given to her constituents in exchange for their support.

Many people were astonished when Anite Evelyn, Uganda’s current minister of finance for investment and privatization, revealed to having actually reclaimed a pre-election payment while adamantly claiming that the donors were an ungrateful bunch.

The news about her post-election reaction was released by an X account with the name @AfricaFactsZone, which is how the entire disclosure got started.

“Ugandan politician, Evelyn Anite took back an ambulance she donated to her district, after losing an election in 2021,” they tweeted.

Normally, this is something for any self-respecting public figure to be ashamed of, but not Anite Evelyn. She literally took up the matter herself and clarified her actions, remorselessly.

“@AfricaFactsZone, Thank you for bringing this up. First, it’s true I took back my ambulance & I have no apologies for that. Why did I do it? It’s because they didn’t vote for me. So did you expect me to walkaway with nothing? Galatians 6:7 A man reaps what he sows!” she wrote in a tweet.

After the shocking admittance, someone replied, “You are shameless. So it’s just in ur(sic) compound?” to which she retorted, “I am shameless to the extent that I sold it!”

Anite, who seemed to have plenty of free time on her hands and was obviously unimpressed by the criticism from X users, even corrected a fan who had rushed in to protect her honor by asserting that she was not capable of doing such a thing.

“Fake news. My best friend @HonAniteEvelyn can not do that. She has done more for her region than most of politicians from that region…” someone pointed out.

Again, Anite struck back, remind all and sundry that she can not only be petty but can also find a way to rope in the scripture into the script.

“My dear, I actually did it, and I am very proud of my action! Once they said go away, I packed all my belongings and left them. Now I hear people crying as if I was the first one to call it quits. The Bible says the wage of sin is death!” she corrected the fan.

To the poor people of Koboko Municipality, whatever you do, please do not fall ill. Suddenly.

We are not taxing till numbers – KRA



We are not taxing till numbers – KRA

The public is being cautioned by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) about a widely shared post on the internet that purports to show that the taxman is now looking into Till numbers.

KRA made it clear in an official statement on X that these allegations are wholly untrue and advised the public to be caution when it comes to possible fraud.

“Not true. Till numbers are NOT subject to taxation, and KRA does not collect any such taxes. Beware of fraudsters purporting to do any of the above.”

The revenue authority directed citizens to verify KRA staff by dialling *572# or through their official website

In September, the government proposed amending the Data Protection Act of 2019 to exclude KRA from its regulations, aiming to facilitate access to information.

The proposed change was to empower the tax agency to retrieve data from Kenyan citizens, including real-time details of financial transactions conducted through mobile money.

Tragic explosion in Mexico leaves Kenyan man in a coma



A Kenyan man residing in Mexico is currently fighting for his life following a devastating explosion.

The precise whereabouts and origin of the blast are presently undisclosed, along with any knowledge of additional casualties.

It has been reported that the man, identified as Francis Kamau Chege from Kiambu County, Kenya, is currently in an induced coma. Regrettably, he was left unattended at the medical facility for several days, as his relatives were unaware of the incident until they unexpectedly came across pleas for aid on social media.

Chege’s girlfriend, who initially shared the details on the internet, had sought assistance to notify his parents and other kin.

Chege’s family from Githunguri, Kiambu County has expressed their deep appreciation to the online community for spreading the important news.

They are relieved that his severe burn injuries have promptly been brought to their attention. Meanwhile, they have reached out to his girlfriend and the relevant authorities as efforts are being made to contact officials in Washington for urgent assistance.

Mexico does not have a Kenyan embassy and instead depends on the embassy located in the capital of the United States. The family is thankful for the swift dissemination of this vital information. Activist Simon Mwangi draws attention to a series of explosions that have taken place in Mexico recently.

These explosions have been triggered by gas-related incidents and natural disasters caused by volcanic activity.

“Thank you for speedy sharing, the father and brother have reached out. We have notified the contacts in Washington for a quick response. Be blessed good people,” activist Simon Mwangi wrote.
