Opposition under siege in Uganda today!
There are a day off action and activity in Uganda today that is out of this world. I am sure the businessmen that Mzee tries to convince of the wealth-creation abilities in his country, surely should be baffled by the state of affairs when he is not there. Mzee surely ordered this because while he is gone… the other candidates, especially the big ones like Dr. Kizza Besigye and Amama Mbabazi has had a harder time campaigning and campaigning well.
This is a statement coming from Amama Mbabazi yesterday:
“Dear Friends. We will be taking a break today to finalize the National campaign task force”. Surely the UPF heard that and let me elaborate on that as well.
IGP Kale Kayihura said this today:
“Today, I am announcing it as IGP that militia moving with Mbabazi will be arrested, it must be dismantled. It was not for those people there would have been no incident I think”.
Today the chairman of the Electoral Commission Eng. Dr. Badru M. Kiggundu has ordered suspensions of the campaign rallies. This happens on a day where Amama Mbabazi and his secretariat at Nakasero in Kampala we’re under siege. There we’re police officers shut down the offices and traffic to it, the people who has set the offices under siege been called for wearing plain clothes and they are there in order to arrest the security personnel of Amama Mbabazi. The Plain ones actually came after the UPF called the uniformed men back. Certain other reports that I can’t verify is that this men was sent by the IGP Kale Kayihura the flying squad or the Special Forces to arrest the men who keeps Amama Mbabazi safe during his campaign and was until the arrest located at the Nakasero office of the The Democratic Alliance and the Go-Forward Secretariat. This can be democratic to do? Would the same forces go the offices of National Resistance Movement and take the men who keep Mzee safe? Wait, they can’t arrest themselves! My bad!
Also the Police picked also up people and equipment from the Amama Mbabazi office in Kololo, not on Nakasero and the TDA office who got under siege today for the former PM. Not easy to opposition in the country today!
If that wasn’t bad enough for Amama Mbabazi has issues with lawful payment for the logo and campaign material to an designer or company owner with the Civil Suit of 1519 who was signed by the Court of Mengo chief magistrate, where the Colin Assimwe sues him for 48M UGX, either stop using the logo’s within 10 days or pay the plaintiff and cost of courtship. That must sting a bit, still not as much as having your offices sieged.
Outside Kampala, a place where Forum for Democratic Change and their Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye we’re out keeping his campaign going; in the villages and towns of the country. Today after Dr. Kizza Besigye held a rally in Kawenge Town there was a police presence on the roadside. There been reported up to 40 police officers stopping the Presidential Candidate and ordering him to drive back home to Kampala, or if they know Wakiso district. They we’re planned to travel to Ntala. The Police just kept the blocked road and persistently told the FDC Campaign team to go back to Kampala. They finally let him go, after he talked to the Police men and they let him go so he could ask his supporters forgiveness for not having a campaign as scheduled.
Dr. Kizza Besigye statement after the rallies today:
“Kamwenge today defied intimidation and blackmail, they did not comply to the threats issued to them. They stood firm with us even when Police tried to block us after our last rally at Kamwenge Town Council as we proceeded to Ntara” (…)“Thank you Kamwenge for receiving and hosting us in your district. Hold on and hold tight liberation is at your door and the change we all deserve is coming. #UgandaDecides #WesigeBesigye”
This here proves the hardships that Dr. Kizza Besigye has had for so long and finally Amama Mbabazi is trying out.
This here proof that the Electoral Commission shows that their changes in the Election Roads Map for 2016 as they please, that puts into effect for all the candidates, together with another loyal cronies IGP Kale Kayihura claiming that the Amama Mbabazi is having militias who created the hazard recently in Ntungamo around his rally. That is why Electoral Commission had to write to him and get him to arrest the people behind the madness. Instead of arrest his fellow yellow brethren in the NRM. He has gone gong ho on the organization and vile on random supporters of Amama Mbabazi in Ntungamo. Together with making roadblock cutting the FDC Campaign team and halt their campaigns in the districts of the country. This is all happening while the Mzee is in Saudi Arabia eating kaspa (Chicken and rice) together with their kings and noble men. Which is a far from the reality in Kampala and districts.
This here can only be seen as vile attack on the FDC and Go-Forward campaign teams. There is certain ways to go about it. The Electoral Commission out of the blue suspended their own road map and harmonization of the Campaign between the Presidential Candidates, this in effect lead to partly how IGP Kale Kayihura reacted. He also reacted to the letter sent by the Electoral Commission plea to catch the perpetrators of the hazard caused in Ntungamo. Instead they are going after innocent people and Police Chief Kayihura explains it and justifies it calling certain parts of Amama Mbabazi team militias… Sorry brother your wrong on that your hired Crime Preventers are systemized thuggery for small peas and shillings to dissolve ordinary campaigning and party works. The police is instead showing doing this! Really! Take a look at the picture from Mbale recently!
That is enough violent actions and sudden stupidity in one day. UPF and the EC has been to foolish! Peace.
