“The MP who moved motion for my recall is stupid. I am shocked at the manner in which parliament handled my fate. How can a house with MPs who jump over chairs and do many dubious things pre-judge me without a chance to be heard” (…) “You have never been recalled for breaking microphones. Whoever moved that motion…it is a woman. Why can’t she respect herself as a woman? And parliament…you start saying Kyaligonza must be recalled, are you the one who put me there?” (…) “I have already recorded a statement to police on the matter but I still insist that I am a smart person and not a criminal that media portrayed” – Maj Gen Kyaligonza speaking to the Press on the 1st April 2019
Well, Major General Matayo Kyaligonza, the Ugandan Envoy to Burundi. Your surely not as bright you think you is. You are entitled to your opinion, but still that doesn’t make it a fact. What it makes you instead is ignorant and acting above the law. Which is not new in your manner.
Since, your a Bush-War General, your were not supposed to be stopped by the Police Officer, they were supposed to let you go and accept that you soldiers beat the Police Officer there. Since, then the video of the offence was leaked. Then, your own statements shows your disregard of rule of law and thinking, that because of your acts in the 1980s and your place in society. That you should shielded from justice and from the courts of law. This is again proven to the public, when you come with statements like this.
We know that he wouldn’t be anybody if it wasn’t for the blessings of the President. He is the guy that keeps promoting the Major General. Even if he continues to regard himself above the law. Still, the President continues to find places for him in the realm of power. Because, of loyalty and because the President needs these guys. As they remind him of the loyal people who fought with him.
Well, on the matter of being smart and what the media portrayed. Have portrayed what he has said and did. The video itself and still-pictures, show what he and his people did on the 24th February 2019. This is now known, he cannot deny that. He can create a false statement and call himself king. But that doesn’t make it more true. The video of the event and the other witness statements, will show how he sees himself above the law.
So, if he is so smart, so brilliant and so wise, why didn’t he just wait to follow the Traffic Officer?
Who was there to guide the traffic on that February day?
Doesn’t seem so bloody brilliant for a Major General and High Ranking Official in the Republic.
Aye, we can really say that he is high on himself. He does need a detox from this diet and maybe go to a school where he learns about proper self-searching, inner-awaking and even humility. It wouldn’t hurt. However, don’t anticipate it.
This is an NRM General and he will not act like a gentlemen, but as Big-Man with no Common Sense or even the courtesy like everyone else. Just following the laws, just driving like you supposed to and let it be. Instead he had to grab to intimidate, violence and use of excessive force on serving Police Officer. That is what he did.
Since then, trying to defend it. Now, pledging that the MPs should get silenced, because he is there assigned by the President. We know that already, all his beloved cronies are blessed by old man with the hat. Still, that doesn’t justify aggression and breaking the laws as you see fit. No it doesn’t, even if you think so Mr. Maj. Gen. Peace.
