The Democratic Party President Norbert Mao and DP Candidate Tonny Kitara have tonight been detained in Lokodi, Gulu District

 

AcholiFlag

As we speak the Democratic Party President Norbert Mao and the DP Candidate for Aswa County Tonny Kitara have been detained. This occurred while they we’re participating in a tradition meeting of the Acholi People called ‘Wangoo’ discussing “Home Affairs”. They are both detained at the Lokodi Police Station.

Mao Masaka Mbabazi 091115

Next week Norbert Mao was supposed have joint rallies with Christopher Okidi the DP Candidate in Agago where they we’re supposed to travel though the district together. This seems now not to happen as he is detained in Lokodi.

He was in Lokodi Trading Centre, Punena Parish, Aswa Sub-County in Gulu District. That is where he was during the ‘Wangoo’ in the Lokodi if you didn’t think it happen there and was some strange reason he was detained at the Police Station in Lokodi. Gulu DPC Martin Okoyo must be busy or following orders from above, meaning IGP Kale Kayihura. That this happens so close into the General Elections shows that something is up! That this all happens in sweeps is certainly suspicious considering Gen. Sejusa was detained in Makindye Military Barracks earlier today. The NRM-Regime must do this for a reason, especially since they have already done damage to Mao by not letting him be able to contest for MP for Gulu District in the coming elections. Peace.

BTW – If you can follow this instruction:

“This is the phone number of the OC operation 0714028378 call him to release Honourable Norbert Mao and Honourable Tonny Kitara the DP candidate for Aswa County unconditionally!”.  Words of unjust behavor from the Government, spreads like fire in dry grass. Time to speed the flame up, shall we?

NRM continue to address the public with violence if they lose power; a sign of toxic leadership from Mzee.

NRM-701x350

There will be a media event from Uganda Media Centre at 10 where they will talk about the Pre-Election environment, the government should talk about what their own men is saying and doing. I will not comment more on the NRM SG Justine Kasule Lumumba and IGP Kale Kayihura how they would shoot and arm Crime Preventers. This here is a continuation of it. Where the NRM people spoke their minds and continue with fear-mongering. In a level that is sky-high.

Ssegawa NRM Masaka

If Defeated…

“In the event that President Museveni is defeated in General Election, the country should expect violence!” (…)”where shall we go if Museveni is defeated? We shall not accept it!” warns NRM Chairman Ssegawa Katumba in Masaka on the 30th January in 2016.

Well, this says it all about the ignorant blatant attitude from the NRM Chairman of Masaka. That he is claiming that the rise of violence will happen if the NRM is defeated. This proves that they can’t accept losing power and their answer is to not accept it. Their answer with violence, as the will of change of guards is not accepted by people like him. Proves the opinions and leaders of NRM have learned well from their master, because he speaks like he was the clone of Mzee.

On Corruption:

“When a farmer stores his millet and rats keep stealing it does not mean the farmers should give up farming. You must continue farming and look for methods to kill the rats. You must put a cat to catch the rats. During the colonial times, there was a subcounty chief but this was replaced by LC III. We also have the LCV chairman at the district. These are the people to catch the rats that steal money meant for service delivery” said Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at a rally in Hoima in 29th January 2016.

Mzee has the ideas and speak like Andrew Mwenda, seems like they have become brothers in spirit. He has to go back to colonial time, and the issue is not for the farmer, the farmer should continue to produce while the production can still be stolen from. He also blames the local leaders for bad service delivery. That is a way of Mzee to clean his hands. Mzee is never to blame, it’s either his PM, Members of Parliament, Opposition, the Western donors and never himself. He wish the local people take down the corrupt forces in the country, that means the people should initially go after the NRM and the Local Government, who happens to be NRM. It is just bloody brilliant that he says this, while we all wonder if the Government of Uganda ever will release the agreements between the Oil Companies and the Government. That would be an exciting read!

 

Museveni Odoi EC Flag Bearer P2

Mzee on losing power:

“How can you security officials let Besigye garner such huge crowds including in my own village where people are now chasing him with cash gifts and even fish? How did the intelligence machinery allow those opinion polls to show, I am dropping down with over 25% like the price of cabbages; while Besigye is rising astronomically like the prices of Gold? You have now made Besigye hot-headed and tomorrow he will start behaving here like his friends Ouattara (president Ivory Coast) and that other one called Raila (former PM, Kenya). This is too dangerous for my health, I can’t stand the shame should Kiggundu (EC chair) declare Besigye the President…no I will not let that happen, I will commit suicide. General Katumba Wamalwa (UPDF) & General Kayihura (Police Chief) must ensure Besigye does not win, my supporters will also commit suicide. ” said Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in Mityana today 30th of January in 2016.

Kiruhura District Kazo Sub County FDC Campaign 29.01.2016

He we see how far it has gone, the man who blames everybody blames his own intelligence team and closest people around him for the great campaign Dr. Kizza Beisgye had in Kiruhura District, his home area where the public showed the gratitude for his campaign rallies there.

UN Ouattara Ivory Coast

Mzee says he will turn around and be like Ouattara the man who got his own rebel army after losing a rigged election. I cannot see Dr.Kizza Besigye going that way, then he would have done it in previous elections. Dr. Kizza Besigye has also more people behind him then Raila Odinga ever will have in comparison.

That this hurts Mzee health is not strange with his continuation of Voter Tourism and paying crowds to show up to his campaigns. The expenses and travelling in his age must be eating his power to regain the power. The U.S. Embassy Polls must also hurt where he has 30% Mbabazi having 15% and Besigye 53%. That must be a hurtful to see that the people are not there for you. Usually you would have used an rhetoric where it sounded more like Ssegwa Katumba where the world would drop into pieces, the whole Ugandan country would end in anarchy and noting that you keeps holy would stay as long as you vote for NRM and Mzee. That is something to expect from Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, but the way he said this is still in the same lingo.

IGP Kale Kayihura 16.12.15 P2

He promises that IGP Kayihura and General Wamala will use their forces of the police and army to get the citizens to understand the necessity of the NRM-Regime and his reign. The Public have to understand that with fear of the governmental violence and rigging. Because Mzee can’t lose power, then he stops breathing and will take his own life.

This is the most cult-leader like quote from Mzee, as saying; #if he did lose power!” he would expect “his loyal cronies would kill themselves together with him”. That is not pure-leadership qualities!

steve-biko-quotes-5

That is toxic leadership let me quote this for minute:

“Toxic leadership is a combination of self-centered attitudes, motivations, and behaviors that have adverse effects on subordinates, the organization, and mission performance. This leader lacks concern for others and the climate of the organization, which leads to short- and long-term negative effects. The toxic leader operates with an inflated sense of self-worth and from acute self-interest. Toxic leaders consistently use dysfunctional behaviors to deceive, intimidate, coerce, or unfairly punish others to get what they want for themselves. The negative leader completes short-term requirements by operating at the bottom of the continuum of commitment, where followers respond to the positional power of their leader to fulfill requests. This may achieve results in the short term, but ignores the other leader competency categories of leads and develops. Prolonged use of negative leadership to influence followers undermines the followers’ will, initiative, and potential and destroys unit morale” (Wilson, 2014).

This here is in the same place the same toxic ideas from Mzee go down to the system, in corruption and in eager for violence if they don’t vote for him. His eager to use force of the police and army to secure his position is not a sign of trust, but mismanagement between government and their citizens. This environment should be talked about it, I doubt it, since their will surely down talk the opposition and their behavior instead of looking at their closest allies as the toxic venom they sometimes address the public and the media. As I have covered before. Peace.

Political activist arrest after monitoring the arrest of Gen. Sejusa

David Sejusa House 31.01.2016

Today the Police have gone all gung-ho. Yet another person is jailed for his political affiliation. Mr. Milton Tumwine Kyalimpa. Today he decided to follow after the arrest of the Uganda Youth Platform and Free Uganda General David Sejusa was taken to Makindye Military Barracks. He is an FDC official in Kamwengye District. It ironic he has been called the NRM prophet… but Hey that is only in Uganda, right? Now he is detained as we speak. More to come; the Governmental forces right now are full-fledge going after opposition who question them. Well, not fully fledged since he was bought of around the 19th January by the NRM and distancing himself from the FDC, so it proves that he could be bought, the price for his loyalty was UGX 300k. Now, that money didn’t save him and the Social Media Activist who turned is detained. He should have known. Peace.

Military Police detain Gen. Sejusa today at Makindye Military Barracks; With a Message from Gen. Sejusa in captivity

David Sejusa House 31.01.2016

Today the Police and the Army went into fully fledge attack on a tried to retire army general in his home. First the Military Police jumped over the walls into his home and surrounded his home in Naguru near Kololo in Kampala.

Gen. David Sejusa aka Tinyefuza is hours later taken by the Military Police to Makindye Barracks. He was taken in a convoy of ten cars and driven away from his home to the barracks.

This here proves the level of insecurities the government is working under, or is it trying to hide from the fact the proof of the stop-over in Kigali of the Ethiopian Airline Plane that was supposed to travel directly from South Africa to Entebbe? It is not hard to see why this news will shut it down, though we know Museveni has a grudge towards Gen. Sejusa for a while since he will not stay in the fold and be loyal to him. This will shut down his messages and talks with Free Uganda and Uganda Youth Platform as he has done in the recent years. Therefore he will stay silent while being detain in the Makindye Military Prison.

Gen. David Sejusa message from the Makindye Military Barracks:

“Let me make it clear my people this struggle is wide than you think even above myself arresting me doesn’t mean i’m not wired stop third world revolutions lets match,if we drop you in a sea or ocean a submarine can’t detect you….. style up i’m still in Uganda and change is coming just know Muhoozi the son to dictator Museveni and family are in charge with Salim Saleh on my detention but Uganda doesn’t want to know.For Gen.Kayihura on my siege i will give him a job after this struggle. My whole body is chipped Detention Technology Transmitter  – I’m wired to a Palm Pilot and GPS landsat transducer for satellite remote sensing and telemetry you are yet to get my spinning live footage at ARSO special US Embassy NOC desk.The UK royal guards have sent a warm message but StateHouse Micheal Kalungi is on board”

NRM Press Release 29.01.2016

The adventures towards the polls 18th February; how the last days might go

UGDebate2016 P6 Together

We are in time and days where the government will be questioned for all their actions and all their misbehaviour towards its citizens. Not anymore that it is some foreign NGOs who complain first, no it’s public and opposition that discuss it in viral formats online. That makes the government and its regime look weak since they can’t spin those stories.

It is truly special times in the Pearl of Africa, voter tourism will be the new word of 2016 unless Mun G or Radio & Weasel makes up a new word for catching babes in Kabalagala. Until then remember the magic word of VOTER TOURISM. If you don’t know what that is about, that is about Mzee, the ruling president of 30 years who wants to have big crowds, but not pulling them. So to get that he pays attendance, gives them food and t-shirts, pay for rental of buses and get them to the campaign venues. Just like certain corporations does with foreigners when they travel in packs to National Parks to see the wild animals, they get that while the local public get to hear the recycled pledges of the old man with the hat. And for a free t-shirt, food and transport, it might be worth it, to listen to the old man for two hours… and that ladies and gentleman is Voter Tourism. Ferrying of voters and ferrying of crowds. A beautiful industry co-owned and run by the ruling NRM Campaign machine and Mike Sebalu. He must be so proud.

Mbarara Buses 12.01.2016

Other activity that doesn’t stop during these elections times is either the blatant attack on media and journalist. Like throwing cameras, shooting them, banishing them, getting them to delete pictures and get media houses to shun campaigns or campaign trails. The NRM have been vocal against radio stations for hosting Dr. Kizza Besigye and Mbabazi have seen their issues with Radio stations. NTV has also had issues early for not showing favourable pictures from the campaign. They we’re even detained together with Daily Monitor at some point. Now the barrier has been broken and the NTV cannot follow the campaign trail of Mzee anymore. Also if Mbabazi is at a radio stations like in Karamoja he couldn’t attend the radio station, other places they have shut of the transmitter after the airing of Mbabazi. The media and journalist have had hard treatment and been costly to follow the campaign trail, with the ones being in the middle of melee like the journalist covering the first planned campaign rally for Erias Lukwago in Kampala was actually shot, but not killed. There been violence in Northern region against Mbabazi and Besigye convoys as they have also hit against media. I assume that this will not stop without a big bang, like the Ntungamo clashes. It has be in those levels if there will be a total shut down.

Wenger Mourinho

Well, when we speak of violence we do not speak about specialized in failure like Arsene Wenger, sorry, I am not supposed to speak about football, and the man who said that was sacked for the second time in that club, so Mourinho is really the special one or the sacked one. Let me get back on the campaign trail. Violence isn’t coming from one man or one party. It usual contributed to the acts of the Police who interfere as NRM Police force, and not a political partisan unit, that was even seen in the primaries in Northern Region where fully uniformed police officer voted. So there traits are there and the IGP Kayihura was on second delegates conference in Kololo to vote for Mzee sole candidacy project, as he does, he just follows orders.

NTungamo 13.12.15 NRM - Amama

The violence of Ntungamo is the epitome of the violence during the campaign trail. There been violence pre-campaign trail when the opposition tried to hold meetings and get delegates to come forward as the police couldn’t accept this. They went fully fledge armoured with tear-gas and guns against people with not even a blade. As they we’re petty criminals instead of bank-thieves. The irony of that is that certain Police has during the campaign trail actually robbed a bank and is now jailed by the government. So there been actions from certain police and police interference into politics. Just like before the presidential campaign trail when IGP Kayihura told the world about the journalistic integrity, this was before his men was undressing opposition woman on the way to Rukungiri. Well, the Police have interfered though silent before Papal visit. It was so scary peace, a unusual peace. Now that the Pope is only sharing the #VoteSevo poster on some roundabouts around in the country; the police have after he left started with ordinary actions towards anybody else then NRM. We can see that they jails people for talking about partial voting, human rights activist for talking about human rights in up-country, detain people for pinning over NRM posters, while the Police help pinning up NRM posters, the police tear-gas late venues, they shut down hospitals for opposition leaders to see, the schools guarded, so guarded that the police stations or post are empty when the Mbabazi or Besigye is in the area. The proud police is busy containing the elements of opposition and even majors are shutting down opposition office in districts! The Police and army are busy being loyal to the NRM-Regime.

NTV Uganda Presidential Debate 2016

While this is happening the opposition have been busy at the #UGDebate16 while Mzee was moving his mouth and brain in the districts, because he couldn’t discuss his policies or be questioned by either TV moderator or fellow Presidential Candidate, that is because Mzee is Carte blanche from those events, even if it is the first of its kind in Uganda. That is why Mbabazi was sounding like NRM spokesman. Something that has continued ever since for some strange reason!

UGDebate2016 P8 Amama

Mbabazi is curious pickle in the mix right now. He is neither nakati nor posho. He seems to want to be both at the same time. He can’t decide on the matter. Mbabazi is running as independent candidate with an independent mandate, in a independent party in a an independent coalition called the Democratic Coalition. The one coalition where Uganda People’s Congress went out off, and also Forum for Democratic Change went out of when Amama Mbabazi became their joint Presidential Candidate; the independent candidate Amama Mababazi; who still sees himself as part of NRM and as a NRM member is an independent presidential candidate. That is hard matrix of thought and also hard equation, even a PHD in math can’t get the numbers to be correct. There is a mix of check and balance that doesn’t add up. Mbabazi is political schizophrenic and can’t be both NRM and Opposition, though he struggles with that… Seems like he want to be friend of Mzee still, even if his friend Dr. Ruhakana Ruganda has taken over his place in NRM-Regime, that must be sad sight.

Go Forward 13.11.2015 Luwero Campaign

The other piece of hardships is the accidents of Go-Forward convoy, the deflections of his MPs and candidates, the little piece of men who turns over to him. The way it seems to many NRM moles in the Go-Forward camp, while he has been trying to capture big-fish from NRM without succeeding. Even if certain members leave in the villages there is many big-men and Woman MPs who has left his fold and regretting standing by him on nominations day. Something that hasn’t happen in the same fashion for Dr. Kizza Besigye during the campaign trail; the trying of fetching the NRM Primaries losers; who also was already MPs and Ministers proved to be meagre failure for the Go-Forward. So that he still get crowds and people behind him is good, but not in the extent of Besigye.

FDC 141015 KB

NRM have continued to trail and travel around the country. With their Voter Tourism, paying people to show up and using government institutions and facilities, also travel methods to show the beauty of their campaign. NRM have also used a fortune on the campaign compared to the opposition. The report that came in January showed the massive amount of war-chest that the President has. Hiring also and paying in towns that they didn’t have rallies so that the boda-boda drivers and other local’s transporters would be able to be used by Go-Forward or FDC in the area.

Museveni Idi Amin

Fear-mongering rhetoric comes from the NRM-regime and their cronies, not only Mzee, but their spokesmen and loyal party officials. That is either Police or Secretary General, even members and former members, talking coup d’état or vote rigging. Even shooting and killing the opposition if they feel the election was stolen away from them. IGP Kayihura wanting to arm his Crime Preventers to secure the NRM-Regime, while one of the Generals says to the media that he will not turn down and give away power if they lose the elections. Proves that the fear they are spreading to the public is staggering. Mzee has told for long he is the only one who create and keep peace within the army and to the public, Mzee has said he still isn’t done with his project; the one is his been doing for 30 years. While this is doing so the Police and Electoral Commission will go after the FDC for using the Defiance, while the Police are detaining and blocking them from travelling on while they are campaigning. So it is some kind of justice happening, but only against opposition, while supporting NRM. Who knew?

M7 NRM

NRM has been campaigning under the #VoteSevo or #SteadyProgress, while the Opposition has gone after this ones at every turn, especially when showing the schools and other government institutions who has deteriorating during his three decade tenure. Like Aswa bridges and Abim Hospital, that has been the epitome of the neglect of the government to serve the people. While NRM have come with the same pledges and same kind of attitude as they have done in two last campaigns. So people are tired of it, even in the place called Isigniro the people was so tired that they left in the middle of the speech of Mzee, that must hurt him, the ones left behind was crime preventers and paid crowd, the locals left the venue when they heard enough of the same kind of empty promises. As the rest of public is, not everybody, but a big bunch seems to be; since the crowds for Besigye isn’t going down and Mbabazi get decent crowds, and the two other ones doesn’t pay them to attend or use the tool called: Voter Tourism.

Uganda EC Wall

The initial scare is the coming rigging and the partiality of the Electoral Commission as the chief got a heavy pay check to stay as boss. Loyalty pays when it comes to Eng. Dr. Badru M. Kiggundu. He has gotten ballot-papers from South Africa, biometric-machines and promised to have enough people to make impartial voting process happen. As well as COMESA and the EU have sent monitors, the Commonwealth was monitoring the last election, not that; that made a difference. It was more we can now show after the rigging that the election was filled with malfunctions during counting, fraud and also buying voters as they did in the General Election 2011. Why should not Mzee use the same tricks now? If the NRM Primaries are a story of what can come then there will be a “Circus” as Kahinda Otafiire said then. As the pre-ticked ballots, stuffed ballot-boxes, MPs and winners in prison while the results coming, as the candidates comes into the tally offices and takes the register and the ballot-papers. This happen so that the NRM-EC couldn’t validate the result from the area. They we’re also using security officers by the polling station to make the voters afraid and scare them to vote for their candidate, so democratic of those NRM big-men who used this tactic.

While the reports of further deployment of troops in Kampala of 5000 soldiers to secure the peace of the election, or to shut down if the people reacted to the result and claim the rigging for the NRM-Regime, as they have done before, last time was in 2011. Something they want to be sure about. The General Katumba Wamala has said that the army will take control if the people are not accepting the result; I know I am paraphrasing, but that is initially what he meant. It is similar to the NRM-Regimes scary rhetoric, but he got the guns to blast Kampala into oblivion.

Topowa Vote

There rumours of more ballot-papers coming in the once who came to Entebbe on 28th January 2016, there rumoured that their will come a second batch ballot-papers from the Island state of Seychelles or Mauritius on the 4th February, to deliver and be able to pre-ticket them before arriving in Uganda, to secure the NRM and their men their seats in Parliament. We would not be surprised if this would happen, they have done something like this before.

Road Block from Police

The next days will be more police around the opposition rallies, they will block the people and be rowdy as the tension and fear of losing grips will take its toll on the police. While the NRM will portray the perfect picture and look beautiful towards the Election Observation Missions from COMESA and EU, while they will do the opposite to the opposition. Tear-gas venues, block venues, stop processions in towns, stop pinning up poster or detaining people for pinning posters or affiliated with the opposition. We will see more radios losing their transmitters, TV stations taking down content questioning the regime as the NBS Sunset did recently questioning the IGP Kayihura, TV-Stations being banished from the NRM or talked about in a vicious way. TV-Stations will either lose their licences or transmitter for having Mbabazi or Besigye, even if they have messages that are negative on the governance levels of NRM. If the NRM-Regime could they would have shut me down… but that is another story.

Museveni Gulu 091015

We will see coming and coming general election that will be questionable, the cringes to power… they will not let it go easy, President Museveni feels he owns the people and the country, even if the people doesn’t feel the same, as seen in Kiruhura district yesterday, his home area was totally blue and no people ferried there. As the FDC doesn’t have the budget of NRM or War-chest of the long-serving president. That will continue until the people goes to the polls. People will try to be bought before going into the voting booth, villages will be visited by NRM millionaires and billionaires who will lose their wealth if the NRM loses their power; so the way to keep their riches is to pay the locals to vote for NRM candidates and sole candidate Mzee. We will see and hear about giving goats, cows and gasoline to boda-boda drivers, as they will give away soap and other merchandize in town-centres from Tororo to Lira. We just know they will go to any measure to secure the power yet again.

So if there will be some other stories then the ones I accessing is because the Orwellian monster will not turn overnight, especially when they have built the King Kong monster over 30 years. So it is a giant who makes the Presidential Palace at Nakasero and Entebbe Statehouse wealth looks tiny. We can’t expect anything else, therefore FDC have to continue with defiance, and the opposition have to stay strong, because the Police have already funds for the post-election violence, and the UPDF is starting to prepare their security of the NRM-regime force of keeping power. So there is little to see unless the people goes back instead of reacting and then goes back to the villages to feed their families. We can hope for something else, but the fear to lose life for the power and seeing how it has turned; an also become after the people demonstrated in 201 P1. So there will be issues in the coming days and the police will show its flex and the army is starting deployment. This here  is not looking positive with the knowledge how this regime is keeping power and wanting to reign as long as possible.Peace.

Kiggunddu faces tough time convincing Uganda Law Society of EC readiness for elections (Youtube-Clip)

“Chairman of the Electoral Commission Dr. Badru Kiggundu had a torrid time during a meeting with members of the Uganda Law Society, the umbrella body of lawyers in the country. During the meeting that focussed on the readiness of the commission to conduct free and fair elections next month, Dr. Kiggundu held his own, insisting that his team was doing everything in its power to deliver a credible election s expected. But as Raymond Mujuni reports, Dr. Kiggundu said the commission would not hesitate to call on the army for help if the need a intervention” (NTV Uganda, 2016).

Burundi’s opposition calls for AU intervention (Youtube-Clip)

“The main opposition group in Burundi has urged the international community and the African Union to approve plans to send an AU peacekeeping force to the country despite President Pierre Nkurunziza opposing the move. The country was plunged into crisis in April when Nkurunziza decided to stand for a third term, a move the opposition said was illegal and contravened the Arusha agreement of the year 2000 ending a civil war that left 300,000 people dead” (AfricaNews, 2016)

The People’s President had rallies today in Kiruhura and Ibanda; while also inspecting a depleted government school in Kiruhura

Kiruhura District P.S. P3 29.01.2016

It is time again to show a campaign trail day of the FDC Campaign Convoy and Dr. Kizza Besigye, they are holding it up while the driver Fred Kato is detained and in jail. The campaign does not stop because of this. Though it is just the opposition who has to cope with that, it’s not like Mike Sebalu or Ofwono Opondo would be jailed for some nonsense, right?

Pretext to the campaign area:
“On the 6th January 2016 FDC offices in Kiruhura district were broken into by the military, the deadly illegal operation was led by an Army officer known as Major Rutakara (mrs) of Kyakabunga village, Nyakasharara sub-county, FDC materials such as Besigye Posters, T shirts, and P10 cards were confiscated” (Minbane, 06.01.2016).

Paying Boda-Boda drivers to shun the FDC rallies in Kiruhura and Ibanda:
Patrick Bitature was supposed to support men to walk around in the district to give the boda-boda drivers UGX 30k to not drive around people to the rallies in the district today. Just as they have offered before in other districts, they also used the same tactic when Go-Forward was in the area campaigning. The same strategy was used in Ibanda district where the men went around promise them a slaughtered cow if they didn’t drive people to the FDC rallies in the district. This was the promises done before the Dokita rallies in Ibanda.

Other news on opposition issues in Kiruhura district on 28th January:
A Church leader with the name of Justine Namara was thrown out of church after the congregation got to know that the leader was a supporter of Amama Mbabazi. In Kanoni town the Catholic Church Leader who was given a motorcycle by John Nasasira has been harassed by the people and the motorcycle have been withdrawn.

Kiruhuru district rallies didn’t start here, but he had an effective campaign rally in the town of Rushere. Where the locals even gave away NRM membership cards to the People’s President!

Kiruhura District P.S. P1 29.01.2016

Dr. Kizza Besigye between rallies in Kiruhura and Ibanda districts he visited a Primary School in Kiruhura, who was supported by funds of USAID, and now run on the Government funds, and the pictures of the school proves the local neglect from the Local Government Council and allocation to this school.

They telling Kizza Besigye at ” Kyahweire” that he shouldn’t worry.

Kiruhura District Kazo Sub County FDC Campaign 29.01.2016

Police in Kiruhura commanded by DPC Byaruhanga has tempted to break Dr. Kizza Besigye from using a road leading him to some campaign venues claiming there is a market place; where they claim Kizza Besigye was likely to disrupt business. At Bugaruhe police was found barricaded the road using police pick up which forced Dr. Kizza Besigye to ask the why they are denying him the way. After minutes of exchange between police and FDC supporters, police later backed back and left Besigye’s convoy to proceed to the next venue. Surprisingly the place where police claimed to be the market there were no people. Meanwhile the tirn up at Besigy’s rally in Kiruhura district is overwhelming.

Byaruhanga Kiruhura District 29.01.2016

Then we see the people greeting Dr. Kizza Besigye while driving into Ibanda Town before the main rally in town! Massive show-up and turn-up for the team!

As the massive rallies in the district where coming to the end. The Calvary had to show up and show their force as they couldn’t do anything else. In Igorora where he was about to hold his last rally before heading back to Mbarara for the evening; the Police intervened and baptized the crowd in tear-gas and scattered the public who had turned up for the rally.

Kizza Besigye words after the rallies today:
“Kiruhura and Ibanda now better to say thank you! You made it clear to the world some of you through TV interviews like Kiruhura. And many of you through the joy and strength to sacrifice your time and resources to have us continue with this struggle we started in 2001. We thank you for the keeping the faith alive and the support. May God bless each one of you.
Kabale here we come…”

That’s enough for today. Peace.
