With the disagreement of whether musician and philanthropist Angella Katatumba is the Pakistan Consulate or not still ongoing, she has shown that she holds the power of choosing who her second in command is.
Angella Katatumba yesterday entrusted her twin brother Rugiirwa Katatumba as her assistant. They did this over some drinks in a night out and Rugiirwa was so honored for his new role.
“I was publicly appointed by the Ag. Honorary Consul of Pakistan to Uganda HE. Angella Katatumba as the Deputy Honorary Consul of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan Uganda,” Rugiirwa posted.
This comes after the ‘Angella Katatumba Foundation’ founder publicly faced rejection and hostility from Raza Bashir Tarar, the current Ambassador Pakistan to Kenya who insists that the position of Pakistan Consulate to Uganda is still vacant and that Angella is occupying it illegally. Angella one the otherside in a show of defiance rubished the claims and insists Raza is fighting her for personal reasons.
Mr Tarar recently issued a letter warning whoever deals with Angella, does it on his or her own peril and requested the Ministry of Internal Affairs to act accordingly.
In Protocol, Uganda has no official embassy therefore Katatumba was supervised by the ambassador posted to High Commission in Nairobi and this was all after the death of His Excellency Boney Katatumba, a recognised Pakistan’s Honorary Consul and father to Angella. She went ahead and claimed that it was her dad who elected her his vice when he was still alive.
The offices of the Consulate are situated in Muyenga just next to Hotel Diplomate which Angella also runs as the Managing Director. Tis new development tells us that these sagas involving the singer are not yet over especially at a time when she has dragged workers of Chicken Tonight for beating her and Jamaican Kuz Kz.
