Ex-Butambala woman MP Mariam Nalubega was for some time very proud of her marital relationship with Kamuli LC5 Chairman Thomas Kategere. Her regular facebook posts always made her seem like a teenager who has just fallen in love. She would post everything she did or moments enjoyed with Uncle Thomas Kategere who, despite being previously married, introduced her to her parents in a manner that left many whispering. Not only did the love smitten Nalubega add Kategere onto her names, she also started staying in Kamuli to make sure the young politician had comfortable nights. She was also often very possessive of Mr. Kategere. But the latest reaching us is that similar to the duo’s past relationships, even this one is now no more if the letter by Kololo-based ARCADIA Advocates is anything to go by. In their 29th October letter, the Arcadia advocates representing Nalubega clearly show there is growing suspicion between the two regarding jointly acquired property. Addressed to the Kamuli District Land Board Chairman, the letter shows that Nalubega is fearful that her former lover Kategere might be nursing plans to deprive her of her share in the land they bought together in Kamuli. The lawyers say that the husband recently moved to have the land titled and registered in his own name to the exclusion of the beautiful but unlucky Mariam Nalubega. They warn the district land board chairman of legal action should he proceed to issue Kategere with a land title on which Nalubega’s names are excluded. Reflecting on the June 2018 local government’s performance scorecard which rated Kategere’s Kamuli worst performing, Thomas’ supporters claim Nalubega had come with misfortunes which threatened to wipe out the man’s political career that has seen him fight unnecessary big wars with giants like Rebecca Kadaga.
