Today, Don Wanyama the Senior Press Secretary for the President. Who was hired directly from the Daily Monitor to serve the President. Now, his using a old video that was shared on WhatsApp before the Tarehe Sita celebration in 2015. It is a 1:05 video clip, which is edited to fit a narrative.
That the National Resistance Movement is using a doctored clip from 2015, which was used to booster the President in 2020 before the 2021. They are using the Besigye clip and a few wordings. As they wouldn’t use the whole clip. Because, Dr. Kizza Besigye wasn’t praising him senselessly, but instead was speaking the truths about it all. Which is something he has done all along.
That is why I will drop further parts of the interview from 2015. These quotations are really saying it all. We all know what he will say, but it still shows the sinister side of the “strategic thinking”, which is what the Don wanted to sell the crowds today. However, if he gave them the whole view. It would be more painful and not such a fake puff piece.
Here’s some of the quotes:
“they were moved by his leadership and articulation of problems that our country was going through and what kind of remedies the country could have after the Idi Amin war.” (…) “one of the most eloquent, articulate leaders of that period in terms of painting a new picture of Uganda should be and that is what enthused us; that is what rallied us behind his leadership. And so we viewed him with a lot of respect and even love” (Besigye, January 2015)
“It doesn’t matter whether the strategy is wrong, but nonetheless, he has one (strategy) in pursues. As we realise now he is on a totally wrong trajectory, a disastrous one in fact; but nonetheless, he has one he is pursuing it whether wrong or right” (Besigye, January 2015).
“Museveni builds a plan (it doesn’t matter whether it’s right or wrong plan) and works hard and focuses on it aggressively everyday. Part of the reason Museveni is still here is because many of our people are not focussed; today he is pursuing one plan and tomorrow pursuing another plan, not following particular path of a plan leading to a particular path and avoiding all sorts of distractions. As you go on that plan, there will be all sorts of distractions; many of our people when a distraction comes, they leave their plan and first pursue the distraction and by the time he comes back, another distraction has arrived” (Besigye, January 2015).
I think those statements says it all about it. They are directly saying what is special and unique about Museveni. About his “strategies” and “strategic thinking”. A sort of leadership that Don Wanyama wouldn’t sell as Rollexes in Wandegeya, Kampala. It wouldn’t be edible and would lack the eggs. It would be part of it, but not the whole deal. You might even miss the red onions, as Museveni would have to many distractions. While you ordered your rollex to eat.
Therefore, the NRM are trying hard. They are working on overtime trying to sell Museveni. Using his old arch-enemy Besigye even. Ronald Muhinda addressed this clip on the 11th February 2019 on Facebook. The video and interview was originally uploaded by blogger Martha Leah Nangalama. So, her means as a government critic has been used as propaganda before and now again.
The NRM cannot help themselves and that’s why I got disturb the peace. In such a manner, where it all get to the court and you for yourself can see the deception made by the Don. Because, he would never use the rest of the interview. Because, that would damage the purpose and the cause. Peace.
