There is something seriously wrong the National Resistance Movement (NRM), it is so systemic, so rampant and self-destructive, even more than 50 Cent. It is as if the NRM needs to find itself out and understand what it is. Because right now, they are trying to blindfold the public, trying to subdue the masses and lie on a grand scale. They are trying to put all blame on the opposition that won, when they ordered the soldiers into the streets. When they put the police in-charge and detained over 50 Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) activists and Campaign Officials. It is time to look at it 20/20 and get a new perspective, because right now, it is dumb, dumb dumb and dumber.
Time for the NRM to use the Sour Patch Kids of Method Man to dance on the tables, even use the Gummy Bear Army of Snoop Dogg from the Katie Perry song back-in-the-day. Because this is not cool anymore. That the party using intimidation, the ones collectively pre-ticketing ballots are complaining about the FDC. After they lost, a fourth round in a row they lost in Jinja East Constituency.
It is vindictive and very rare moment, that the by-elections swings this way, most of them has gone in favour of NRM. The one most significant before this was Kyadondo East, where Bobi Wine won the election over a NRM candidate. Therefore, this is a blow to the supremacy, but it was a narrow escape, in Kyadondo, the numbers was with such a margin the NRM couldn’t rig it, even if they tried. They did, but the public wouldn’t have it, just like they didn’t in Jinja East.
If the NRM should complain about the narrative of the fraudulent affair from the FDC. Why did none of them end behind bars? Why did none of them have issues with the soldiers? Why did they do whatever? They even pre-ticket ballots to the staggering numbers of 8,000 for their candidate, while walking away like nothing. Therefore, it is hard to defend that the FDC did something wrong, other than contesting and actually proving that they have the public behind them.
It is hard to take the NRM serious in this matter, when they are attacking the FDC for the same reasons, everyone else could question the state. The misuse of the police, the soldiers should be evident enough, that the state was ready and spent massive fortunes to win it. While the FDC hold campaign rallies and had help from FDC Central Executive Committee, as they camped there the week ahead. That is natural, when the NRM shots off all cylinders to take it.
It is time for the NRM to send the Gummy Bears, if they want to cry foul, not send highly trained military personnel into a civilian area, unless they want to cease local government and annex it directly to the State House. It just don’t make sense, the amounts of mambas and soldiers. Therefore, the NRM Secretary General Lumumba, should just have delivered the petition to the court and get a fifth round in Jinja East. Which, they will also loose, because their man isn’t any good. That is why the President want him just to sleep in the parliament and send him to India if he get sick.
Send the Gummy Bears and stop the nonsense. Peace.
