Golden Band singer Ronald Mayinja asked President Yoweri Museveni for Shs2 billion to ‘finish’ Bobi Wine’s political career.
This stunning report comes days after the singer launched his own pressure group, after ending his association with People Power.
Mayinja launched a pressure group, Peace For All, All For Peace.
Since it launch, Mayinja has faced the wrath of Bobi Wine’s supporters.
Now reports circulating on social media indicate Mayinja met with Museveni on 31st of last month in Kisozi, Gomba.
Unlike with the former prime minister Amama Mbabazi who also met Museveni on the same day, and agreed to share his pictures while meeting with President, Mr Mayinja didn’t like the idea of sharing his pictures meeting with President.
He instead asked to keep a low profile as he begins his new assignments.
Mayinja, we are told, on meeting the president asked for Sus2 billion to promote his new political pressure group.
He told Museveni that he would use the pressure group to neautralise Bobi.
As he explained, Museveni listened attentively before he directed tge singer is given Shs600 million shillings in cash, with more to come as he executed his duties.
Catherine Kusasira helped Mr. Mayinja to meet a president.

Kusasira and Mayinja are bandmates in Golden Band.
Earlier today, Kampala mobiliser Full Figure confirmed that Mayinja had joined ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM).
Taking to Facebook, Full Figure welcomed Mayinja to the ‘winning team’ which she also called home.
Ever since the launch of his group, Mayinja sent tongues wagging with many widely interpreting it as a competitor group to Bobi’s People Power.
At the launch, Mayinja said his objective was to unite all Ugandans regardless of political affiliation. This included ruling NRM.
To many in Bobi’s camp, this was viewed as betrayal of the highest order, and since then Mayinja has endured a tirade of abuses from People Power on social media.
The musician finally addressed his issue with Bobi insisting all is good.
He wrote on Facebook: “Hello my fellow Ugandans, I want to make this clear to the public about peace for all, All for peace.
I’m not here to fight anyones political belief, cultural, social, religious, environmental beliefs or any other aspect but I want everyone’s idea to be tolerated in this country as long as it brings peace, for example, if you allow Catherine Kusasira to make a launch, let Mayinja also be allowed too. But I can’t reach my voice alone, that’s why I have come up with this initiative “Peace for All, All for Peace.”
