Opinion: When will the UPF stop blaming the victims?

At this very moment of time, the authorities and the Uganda Police Force are currently busy dropping Press Releases and Press Conferences after the fact. Where they always blame either the victims or some alien outsiders, which are hooligans, hoodlums or supporters of the opposition. That is what the state does and it’s not funny.

This is a endless cycle where the authorities, the law enforcement comes out with guns, weaponry and tear-gas, where they come in with full force and being on guard. To disrupt and disperse the public. That is what they are doing with live-bullets, tear-gas and other means. As they are assaulting themselves and violating the space just to prove their vigilance. And it always happens to appear in front of the main opposition. It never happens around the people supporting the regime. No, then they are onlookers and in good spirit letting processions, rallies and greetings happening.

This is why reading the press releases and the reports from the press conferences are infuriating. They are putting forward narratives to clean their hands. As they have the weapons, the machinery and the ability to cause harm and injury. Still, it is always the fault of the citizen,s the campaign convoy or anyone not associated with the brother who held the gun, throw the tear-gas or acted violently towards fellow citizens. No, it is the injured fellows fault, it is the car of the convoy and for the Love of God. The Opposition should always know better. Still, the same actions and the same meetings are appearing with the ruling regime, but never ever this outcome.

That is why it’s two republic’s at the moment. One for the ruling regime and one for the opposition. It is one police force for the regime and another brutal vile animal for the opposition. The opposition got to act like saints and if not just do all party work at their headquarters. These headquarters can even be raided without warrants too. So, its not like these parties are “legal” in a sense. They are defying the state and the regime itself. Therefore, the Police Force are allowed to breach their human rights and their constitutional rights to assemble. Because, the state is only directly allowed to have one “party”.

This is how it seems. It doesn’t matter who is opposing or working to topple the President on the ballot. It could be a headless chicken at this point, still that chicken would be violated, thrown in jail and would be barbecued very quickly by law enforcement. That is just the sad reality at this point.

The Uganda Police Force always, always blame the opposition. It always has a reason to ambush, besiege and ruthlessly interfere in the campaigning of the opposition. There are some weird hoodlums, hooligans or extremists who plans to undermine the republic and they are always a part of the opposition. It is just a coincidence that it happens again and again. Like we are supposed to believe that and that its a coordinated effort to create insecurity in the Republic.

Alas, that insecurity or unwarranted attack always appears around the opposition. However, if someone sincerely should create insecurity they should have done that around the President and his associates. They are the ones ruling the Republic and running the nation. Not the Opposition. So, these folks they are monitoring and coordinating insecurity is dumb. That’s why you know these arguments are out of thin air and their existence is as shallow as the ego of His Excellency himself.

So, please for the Love of God. Can you stop the madness and the election violence. Uganda Police Force it is steadily happening on your watch and does this make you proud? Is this why the Police Officers wakes up in the morning? To create havoc and put citizens in danger for their political affiliation? Is that your mission and your lives work?

If so… your worthless civil servants. Who are only serving one master and not the whole nation. You are only doing the bidding of one man and not serving the Republic. That is a disgrace and very unfortunate. Because, you could have been proud of your days work. However, you instead have chosen to be beggar of one man. Instead of showing loyalty to all citizens of one Republic. Peace.
