Trust me, under the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Nothing will be seen as foolish, nothing will seen as bonkers, every single possible way of securing the people will now appear. If that is registering all cars, lorries, tanks, motorcycles and bikes. Nothing will be left behind, even thongs will have special registry within the Ministry of Ethics and Integrity. We can just await that, all to stop the assassins from killing someone.
We can await that if the president is serious, there should be some CCTV put-up everywhere. They should be able to keep up with moving traffic, even help the metropolitan police to keep up with traffic violations. However, that will not happen. President Museveni has promised this in the past, but haven’t had the capacity.
The President did today say he would ban hoodies and such on motorcycle drivers, also get the drivers to have helmets, which is visible in the night and numbered. I don’t think the clue is in the hoodies, as much as it is in thongs. It is that someone will drive unregistered and unlicensed motorcycle, than carry guns to blast someone into oblivion. That happen to Kaweesi and Abiriga. The hoodie wasn’t the issue, it is that the police haven’t the proper registers for guns or for the gangs who carries illegal firearm. That is why the gangs and mafias get to continue their unlicensed business.
The issues isn’t to register, to uniform all the drivers of that and also get specialized headgear. Also ban hoodies and let the smile of the driver be seen in middle of the night. It is the NRM and the President who haven’t been responsible or accountable. They should have reacted before and considered what is lacking, instead of creating issues to a whole transporting industry.
This is the same that happen after Kaweesi, when the NRM relaunched the registration of Sim-Cards and harassment of civilians, they had to go through long routes, before the final registration of the Sim-Cards. The Telecommunications companies followed suit and the citizens too, until they got the replacement of the Sim-Cards. The whole situation created by state was hectic and chaotic.
President Museveni, wants every single person driving motorcycles to be visible and registered now, because the second time of killers driving that. Instead of getting his police and intelligence officers actually following the gangs and the possible criminals. That is unlikely at this point, they seem more preoccupied with monitoring Besigye, than catching killers and thieves. The Security Organizations and Presidents should be ashamed by themselves.
The new Security Guidelines for Motorcycles are really going stupid. It is going foolish, becoming nonsense. Nothing is left behind… the President will soon make sure your register ball-pens and the ink-pens, because you can kill someone with that too. Should he do that too? Because that is the next level? When he is already talking about GPS monitoring of Motorcycles and also uniforming the drivers. What else is left?
That is why this is overzealous and to another level. That is why I expect thongs and underwear to marked, secured and GPS on. So the Dictator can follow everyone around and what they do. Since everyone driving motorcycles is an issue and last year everyone with a cellphone. He continues with stupid countermeasures. Instead of actually letting his Security Organization fix the situation. Giving them way and looking into the crimes committed. Peace.
