A Message to the UPF: You won’t solve Abiriga’s murder by arresting MPs!
I don’t know if this is the remedy, the Uganda Police Force has or the National Resistance Movement (NRM) have to secure their existence, because at some point of time. They just have to arrest some Members of Parliament on some fraudulent charges. This time it hon. Hassan Fungaroo Kaps, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) the Obangi County MP and also Betty Nambooze Bakireke, the Democratic Party (DP), the Mukono Municipality MP.
Today, the Police Force first took Nambooze from her home in Mukono, than she was put in Jinja Road Police Station before taken to Naggalama Police Station. Where she after a whole day was released. This after producing a statement and let out on bond until Friday, as the probe on Abiriga continues. That is because the Police says the MP has delivered “Offensive Communications”. Meaning, she said something profound online or in a broadcast. Which was insulting the intelligence of the NRM.
Certainly, the same must have been done by Fungaroo too. Both of them have to show up on Friday as the Police are investigating them. This is all a charade, where they are used as pawns to create chaos. Certainly, the UPF and UPDF don’t want people to look into the cover-ups and the sudden arrests surrounding Gen. Kale Kayihura, also the strange events around his airlift. Nothing seems like the statement the UPDF said. Neither, the changing narrative. They are doing that, as people are worked-up of the assassination of Abiriga.
Therefore, because these MP’s was speaking out, writing their heart out and actually taking a stand. The Police are shielding the state arresting them and trying to stop them from questioning the death of Abiriga. That is why the Uganda Communication Commission are also explaining how people should communicate about the investigation into Abiriga, because the state doesn’t like thinkers. The NRM Regime need loyal followers, everything else is sectarianism.
That is why this arrests and this threats against to MPs is just sad. They are used as tool from the state. Their arrests and their investigations into the words they said, won’t bear fruit and create any changes of the cause. This sort of investigation is more a public mirage, than actually making a difference. The investigation should be into the motorcycle killers and the leads from the murder-scene. Not if an MP wrote something on Facebook or talked on NTV. That is just nonsense and the world knows that.
What is saddest is that the state use these tools, instead of solving the murder. They are misusing the state resources on mirages on forgery and not on the initial investigation into who actually killed Abiriga. Because they are more preoccupied playing with these MPs and their lives. Using their time and spirit. This is not making the Republic better. Just hurting it instead and also the integrity of the Parliament. As again MPs are suddenly made criminals for speaking their mind. Peace.
