Mark Bugembe also known as Buchaman, the presidential advisor on ghetto affairs is currently admitted at Malcom Clinic – Kibuye after brutal arrest by the Uganda Police force.
Buchaman was on Thursday June 18th 2020 arrested for allegedly disrupting a meeting organized by National Environment Management Authority –NEMA.
Patrick Onyango, the Kampala police spokesperson, said Buchaman was arrested by Katwe police after he mobilized the youth to disrupt a NEMA meeting on Thursday afternoon.
Police said Buchaman stormed the meeting saying it was not supposed to be held in his area without his involvement as President Yoweri Museveni’s advisor. Onyango added that Buchaman told the organisers that he did not want the meeting to take place.
“After their assessment, they gathered the community and they were addressing them. Bugembe gathered other unruly youth and they stormed the meeting with intention of disrupting it that he is a Presidential Adviser and he doesn’t want the meeting to take place,” Onyango said.
President Museveni appointed Buchaman to be his advisor on Ghetto matters in October last year during a meeting held at Kibuye, Makindye West constituency in Kampala. At the same meeting, Museveni appointed another singer, Catherine Kusasira, as his advisor on Kampala.
