Golden Band Musician Ronald Mayinja has been ordered to return the money and cars he got from President Yoweri Museveni over failure to deliver.
This development comes following the Musician’s failure to deliver what was expected of him to President Museveni.
According to Mayinja’s business partner Amon Arinaitwe, the musician was given three cars to help him run his political movement activities under the ‘Peace for All, All for Peace’ initiative.
Amon added that whereas the cars were intended to ease their work as they traversed the country preaching the “positives” of Museveni’s government.
Mayinja launched his Peace for All initiative at the beginning of this year attracting criticism from the People Power Movement where he initially belonged and he was also accused of receiving money from Museveni to counter Bobi Wine which he kept denying until images of him and President Museveni circulated on social media.
At the ‘Peace for All, All for Peace’ initiative launch in January, Mayinja outlined five key tasks that they intended to accomplish, including carrying out nation-wide tours to sensitize Ugandans on the importance of peace, compose music that promotes peace in differed local dialects, and downplaying divisionism.
Others were to promote mutual respect among Ugandans irrespective of their divergent views on social, political and economic trends in the country and mobilize more Ugandans to be part of the peace movement.
According to Mayinja, they decided to establish the Peace for All initiative to foster peace and co-existence as a key factor in social, political and economic transformation.
“We members of Peace for All, All for Peace, recognize that our country’s history is characterized by social and political instabilities, with the absence of peace since independence; that social and political instabilities are the fundamental bottlenecks to social, economic and political transformation; that some actors do not appreciate the importance and prominence; resolved and undeterred with commitment to foster positive change in the cause of a peaceful Uganda….,” the document read.
