Friday, 31 October 2008
The Price of the Red Pepper has been hiked from 1,200/- to 1,500/- with effect from 3.Nov.2008. The hike which will apply to the Onion tabloid too was announced yesterday by the Operations Director Johnson Musinguzi. The increase has been propelled by general increase in the cost of production. The cost of printing materials has also sky rocketed, the depreciation of the shilling against the dollar plus the recent fuel prices have contributed to the increase.
The waiver on Diesel was removed mid this year by government and yet generators at the production plant in Namanve run constantly.

Jane Nakabugo of Uganda Christian University(UCU) in Mukono had her friend or roomamate for that case who got attracted to her boyfriend and the two became lovers in the process. Jane felt betrayed that her best friend had snatched her man away.
She moved on and got another man who was quite old and hit it off with him. It turns out later that the man was infected and when Jane tested her self the results indicated she was infected too. She knew all this had been brought about by this friend who betrayed her. She decided to call the ex boyfriend who responded and asked him to sleep with her even though she was in another relationship. The man obliged and the two did not use any protection and that is exactly how she got her friend and the ex boyfriend trapped.
This story was published last Sunday but throughout the week students have been frequenting the clinics around for AIDS tests and the few who have got results have come out very miserable. This has forced girls to go for similar tests.
Meanwhile local people in Mukono are complaining of the long queues of the students who flood the clinics and delay them.

The Red Pepper has landed on shocking details that led to the popular presenter, Rachael Kiwanuka a daughter to Halima Namakula to be sent on forced leave.
The popular presenter was proud and disrespectful to some staff members something that did not go down well with the staff members and to make matters worse she was a pal to the top boss, Gordon Wavamuno. Sources from the station added that Racheal is close to one of Wavamuno's sons which made her feel invincible. This brought about an anti Rachael K Camp that peddled lies against her to management.
A good number of managers have been interested in Rachel and have been laying strategies for bedding her but the no-nonsense Rachel turned all of them down. An sms from one of the managers read:'' Hi Rachael, Do you mind if we have a chat at Serena Hotel at 10:30? I will be through with my work..Urgent Dear" and Rachael's response was "Thanks. I'am very busy at no end studios. May be another time though I think its better we meet at office!"
This reply made her extremely worried but at least she was not about to sleep with that man. This man was aging and suspected to be infected. The very manager intensified plans of her sacking.
Other issues were Rachael's fashion and Design. She dressed like Alicia Keys among others and some of the babes were envious of this. Most of her attire is imported and she likes expensive jewelry and shoes. Now that Rachael has one of the furnished and loaded wardrobes in town and she is very kind to help girls who storm her place borrowing clothes, she has ended up in lots of problems.
When she fired back at the cleaner who insulted her that was the last blow. She was summoned and sent on forced leave.

David Arinaitwe was remanded to Luzira prison on allegations of stealing a car. He had earlier accused Pastor Kiwewesi of Sodomy a case that court later dismissed due to insufficient evidence. Arinaitwe said: "I feel a lot of pain in my bones, and in my stomach, the doctor said If I had not received medical treatment I would have possibly died by the end of this week, I suspect someone poisoned me while I was in Luzira."
