Lwengo, Greater Masaka: Bruce Tushabe Nzabanita, the President of Volunteer Uganda Extra Limited (VUEL) has affirmatively sought for action against alleged Presidential Advisor and CEO TM TV, Justine Nameere for offending him publicly by use of vulgar words on him on WhatsApp platform of over 300 people.
Bruce said that on Sunday, Ms. Nameere while on WhatsApp Platform called (AGAFA E MASAKA) failed to control her speech and ended up erupting into vulgar words ‘(ebigambo ebitayisibwa mukamwa oba ebyobuwemu- Luganda)’ against Bruce’s mother which did not go well with him (Bruce).
This bad blood between the two has not started today, this website has subsequently published stories on their misunderstandings where by Justine Nameere went ahead to cause arrest of Bruce Tushabe and was imprisoned for three months on alleged violation of Section 25 of Computer misuse act or cyber harassment.
“I humbly ask the President of Uganda, Office of the President, Ministry for Presidency to take this lady for psychiatric checkup because a person of her valor cannot base on the platform that has over 300 members with people of great integrity and squander such awkward words against a person. If the report comes out that she is having a psychiatric condition, I will chill but if it comes out that she is okay, I will then issue her 14 days ultimatum to sound a public apology for offending me and my late mother and if she fails, I will quickly take legal action”. Bruce Tushabe vowed.
Bruce says enough is enough, it is high time that some action should be taken against Nameere from her bosses as she alleges.
“It is so disappointing for such a person of integrity to squander words of such magnitude on a public WhatsApp group as well hyping herself for having imprisoned me for three months in addition to threaten to cause my arrest again- which shows that there is a hidden negative intention on to my life”. Said Bruce Tushabe.
“It is so hurting that she (Nameere) has been doing all this without negative retaliation from but I now feel that enough is enough, Office of the President which directly supervises her should come out and take some action on its own employee because she alleges to be Senior Presidential advisor for Greater Masaka Affairs”. Bruce seeks.

In a letter that this website accessed, Lawyers saidt that, their client highly expects all this in pursuit of executing the mandate of the organization. However, it is regrettable that officers of government who would be giving a helping hand to enable the organization execute its mandate are the same people used to fight it. That notwithstanding, this will make the organization stronger.
