Kibuli: Renegade troubled Journalist Dean Lubowa Saava will spend the night at Kabalagala police otherwise code-named ‘University’ of understanding as police prepare his file to appear before a competent court to answer a number of offenses.
Our sources at Kibuli CID HQ have confirmed this evening that the pencil-thin former NTV, NBS, BBS and CBS journalist is being detained at Kabalagala police and will soon be taken to court to answer three charges as of Wednesday night, which include; Criminal Libel, Offensive Communication and Cyber Stalking, a source told our reporter.
Yesterday police detectives from CID HQ Kibuli finally surrounded Dean Lubowa Saava in his hideout around Mengo where he had been holed up for weeks and arrested him.
“Yes, we have this purported self-made ‘investigative’ con-man in our hands, we finally nailed him after weeks of the hunt. We’re actually approaching Kibuli and CID where we shall present him before the press,” said one of the officers on phone in the car that was driving him to Kibuli.
A few weeks ago Rtd. Flight Captain John Kasaami wrote to IGP Martins Okoth Ochola complaining about Saava’s social media posts in which he accused him of several crimes including murder, homosexuality, high jacking a government plane, recruiting youth into lesbianism and homosexuality, being in possession of illegal arms among others. After the petition, IGP picked interest in the matter and officially wrote to CID Kibuli in which he directed them to investigate, get more information that would assist to pin the Saava.
It’s against that background that Saava has been a matter of interest to police, in order to divulge more information that they could use in prosecution if need be. However, in an event that Saava fails to prove his allegations, then he is likely to be charged with libel, computer misuse among others.
Genesis Of All This
In our previous editions on this investigation, our reporter discovered that online trending videos against Kasaami including those accusing him of operating gay activities in Uganda, all emanate from an incident where a group of girls reportedly visited him at his home and then asked for the toilets to ease themselves. On the way to the loose, they passed by his drawer, opened it and allegedly stole USD15000 from him. After discovering that his money was stolen, Kasaami later reported at Entebbe police and the suspects were arrested. In a bid to set themselves innocent, they allegedly started conniving with poverty-stricken former NTV staff Dean Lubowa Saava to ensure they malign him.
It’s alleged that Saava first sent his emissaries and demanded shs100m to ‘kill’ the whole ‘scandal’ or would suffer from the negativity it would create him. Of course, the battle-hardened retired captain rubbished him.
This prompted Saava to start recording live videos via his social media platforms including YouTube, smashing all sorts of dirt against the 80+-year-old Muzei Kasaami, a devoted Catholic who never misses a morning mass daily at Bugonga Church Entebbe.
Via his YouTube videos, Saava alleged that Captain John Kasaami, rented a hostel in Kampala city where they train and recruit the youth into homosexuality, although he doesn’t mention the name of the hostel or location. As if that was not enough, the journalist who was disgracefully kicked from the Serena based station NTV over claims that he would use the station’s hard-earned reputation to defraud the public, alleged that Kasaami also used his Bulago Island On L.Victoria, in connivance with songbird Irene Namubiru to murder his worker over yet to be known reasons.
“He usually invites University students to parties and when he invites you, he tells you to come with a friend. The drinks on his organized parties are always drugged so when students start losing it, he puts them into pairs; a boy to a boy and a girl to a girl before ordering them to start making love,” Lubowa claimed in his recorded video clip making rounds on social media.
He added, ”Kasami works with police in Entebbe to deal with those big-headed would-be recruits. I would like to call upon the UPDF leadership to deal with their soldier who is busy recruiting our young people into homosexuality.” However, according to our sources, Kasami is not an army captain but a flight captain. “To know that, that guy has no clue about what he is writing because he heard ‘Captain’, now he is referring to me as an army captain, and he is calling upon the army leadership to discipline ‘their errant officer’ Kasami wondered.
Interacting with our investigative reporter on Friday, furious Kasaami noted that he is still in shock as to why such a young man who doesn’t even know him can malign the image he has sacrificed for, for over 80yrs.
“I can’t understand today’s young people. You see, in my entire life of 80+ yrs, I have never committed an offense, I have never been to police or court over any wrongdoing. I’m a private person who enjoys my quiet peace, but I can’t understand what exactly is running in his head. Now, let him bring the evidence of whatever he has said to the police. Let him prove his words,” Kasaami vowed.
