The US Senator of New Jersey, Robert Menendez, and his wife, Nadine Arslanian, are being investigated by the Federal Prosecutions Service for allegedly taking bribes from politicians and businessmen to gain favors from the US government.
Sen. Menedez shares a critical relationship with the leader of the National Unity Platform, Robert Kyagulanyi.
“We are investigating Senator Menedez and his wife, Nadine, for allegations of bribery by African politicians and businessmen from within and across Africa. The duo are also being investigated for receiving bribes of one million US dollars from Wael Hana, a beef exporter, and Bobi Wine,” a US Federal Persecution Service source said.
The source noted that the senator has also been receiving unspecified gifts from Dr. Salomon Melgen and Bobi Wine, whom he is on record as having aided in their international political engagements.
A highly secure source within the Central Intelligence Agency based in the US has revealed that Senator Menedez was bribed to push for sanctions against some officials. On several occasions, Menedez has been at the forefront of planning and organizing Ugandans living in the US to engage in several demonstrations against the Ugandan government, according to the CIA source.
“The Federal Prosecutions Office discovered suspicions of bribery among other crimes committed by Senator Menedez. He is thought to have been paid well to mislead the US about African governments, particularly Uganda. He has been so vocal on matters pertaining to Uganda,” the CIA source said.
The source further revealed that Menedez was also at the forefront of the continued attempt to frustrate a cordial relationship between the US and Uganda.
It has also been established that Senator Menedez is currently involved in organizing the forthcoming demonstration by NUP stalwarts living in the US.
Recently, Kyagulanyi said he had been engaging the US government with the support of Menedez to impose a travel ban on the President of Uganda following the invitation of the US President.
“Thank you, Senator Menedez, for this important statement on safeguarding democracy in Uganda. Truly grateful to the leaders of the world who are standing with the people of Uganda in our pursuit for democracy and the rule of law,” Kyagulanyi tweeted recently.
According to a CIA source, it was upon this background that a probe was ignited to ascertain the clandestine dealings between Kyagulanyi and Senator Menedez.
