Opinion: Demoted MPs in the 10th Parliament are a sign of the fraudulent election

MPs Parliament Uganda 16.05.2016

The cards game of the 10th Parliament has started in the recent days, not only with the vetting of the Members of Parliament, but also the grievances of the regions not represented in Pax Musevenica 7th Term Cabinet of 2016-2021. So with that in mind there are rulings and changes, which are small, but important, as they set the precedence for the loyalty to the ballots and the election that we’re held. We knew it was rigged and was a sham, so that a few MPs getting kicked out for the Qualifications are nonsense, as they are handpicked men by Dr. Tanga Odoi or by the NRM Regime, National Resistance Movement we’re picking new loyal men and loyal to the brown envelopes of President Museveni, those who thinks differently have lost the plot.

We have already gotten Busiro South MP, Peter Ssematimba and Lugazi Municipality MP, Isaac Mulindwa Ssozi, Vincent Woboya, Budadiri East MP, Lucy Aciro Otim, Aruu North, Pader MP, Lillian Nakate Ssegujja, Luweero Woman MP; they are disqualified in Court on their Academic Qualifications oron Electoral Malpractice before becoming Members of Parliament (MPs) in the 10th Parliament. This is just a few of the MPs that have been kicked out of Parliament after trouble in court recently!

There are total of 40 MPs who are questions in Court over their standing after the General Election of 2016. This is 40 MPs out of over 458. Still a massive amount as the FDC has only about 30+ MPs in the Parliament and not really having a voice in the Parliament at all. The NRM have the majority and creative control and legislative balance of the house. So with the fall of up to 20 MPs sets also the standard of internal NRM Party and NRM Electoral Commission that couldn’t even have the structure to validate own candidates before the vetting in the 10th Parliament. That is an embarrassing view and proves yet again the stagnate truth, that they are handpicked from “above” and not “elected”. Therefore the vicious handouts get now slapped by the court-cases that cannot kiss the ass of the President and his loyal vision.

So that some of the 40 MPs from the NRM fall short is not surprising, but another proof of the sham that occurred in February and the Eng. Dr. Badru Kiggundu shady hands into the coffers for tripling his pay right before the polls.

If you think it is bad, then look at this:

During a Caucus meeting of NRM MPs at State House on Friday, Government Chief Whip Ruth Nankabirwa told the President that the party may lose seats in the 10th Parliament if he does not come to the financial rescue of those battling petitions in courts. Yoweri Museveni subsequently directed the party secretary general, Ms Justine Kasule Lumumba, to compile a list of NRM MPs with petitions in court and compile a budget of the financial requirements. More than 40 NRM MPs are defending their seats in court”.

With all of this in mind, the NRM have to cough of more money, as they already misused state funds and empty all of the safes on both Entebbe and Nakasero Statehouses during the Campaign Trail between 2015 to the 2016. The General Election have already been costly as the Police Force have already spent over budget with feeding and fuel for driving Besigye back and forth from Kasangati in Wakiso to Naggalama Police Station in Mukono.

So the National Resistance Movement continues to sparkle in glory of theirs, in the basking vision of Museveni and his cadres, which they all are. So with that in mind, they are all begging for his help to fund the court cases, as much as the ones who lost the NRM Primaries asked for help to cover the campaign and local pledges in October of 2015. The Money issues always come back when it comes to NRM. The same is with the NRM MPs who are in court defending their Electoral Malpractices and Academic Qualification, and if they lose it in court, they have not only been vetted to early, but also proved the ‘stealing of an election’. It’s the thieves theme with another rap on the flip-side.

They wouldn’t not lose their position and seats if they we’re really elected and had the followed the guidelines to become Members of Parliament, as some are taken to court on bribing voters, others that they haven’t real school-papers or Academic Qualifications as they are forged documents claiming their status of education. So to be undressed and kicked out of parliament because you never went to Makerere, Kyambogo or any other higher education… lied and came with documents that weren’t verified from institutions who are concern with the Academic merits.

That together with the ones that have clear evidence of electoral frauds and malpractice as bribing voters and also bribing Electoral Commission officers; that secures the place in the Parliament, instead of the men and woman who went into a fair game, and used other practices to fix themselves inside the legislators chambers instead of men and woman who actually had the right and the vote of the people in the county and district.

So with the knowledge of all of the malpractices of the General Election 2016, for every MP that are kicked out of Parliament through a legal process where they cannot defend their title and place, proves the systemic malpractices that I and other have said it we’re. For 40 MPs to be challenged and with already dozen backhanded and lost their place, proves the validity of the claim of a fraudulent election. If it was justified… and if it was a free and fair election, it wouldn’t be that many, in my calculation about 9% of the whole Parliament. That is big reach to have that many questionable MPs in one election alone. Together with the knowledge that certain candidates we’re unopposed in their constituency like Hon. Sam Kuteesa for instance. That should really say something about the sham that occurred and should not be forgotten. Peace.
