It is not long ago Dr. Stella Nyanzi left Kampala for Nairobi as she feared for her life post-election time. Everyone understood this and applauded her for leaving to secure herself and her kids shelter in Kenya. However, now that she is there…
Here activism isn’t fruitful or doing anything good. Only showing that her focus isn’t as clear as it needs to be. Nyanzi needs to either chill or ask for some guidance. Because, her two last poems only seems like a weird obsession. For someone who has been a Besigye fanatic and supporter. She should know what it does and why she joined Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).
Nyanzi lost her first election and that to the National Unity Platform candidate for Kampala Woman MP. The two last poems seems like she’s targeting Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. One is about his “bullet proof car” that the diaspora and his supporters abroad bought him. The other is about him sexually withdrawing mid-way from the Supreme Court. This is really her character now.
We know she has used sexuality and vulgar language. That is why she was arrested over “buttocks”. Therefore, this is not shocking… but her ways… now she is targeting Bobi Wine instead of Museveni. Wanting Bulletproof buses and cars for all citizens. Wondering, if she was as infuriate when Besigye made his a fortress and made new security features?
I don’t remember her fury and style of response to it. Maybe she wrote about everyone needed steel-reinforcement over the windows and windscreen. I cannot recollect that, maybe I don’t get the memo or the 16 bars of fury from the good doctor.
Nyanzi have worked for the cause and shown character. She has gone through a lot for her activism. Nyanzi deserves credit for that. Nevertheless, this here is a full wasteland. It is a such a sorry excuse from her. If she thinks this is her bread and butter. Good for her… but it is not doing any good.
It is just making trenches between the FDC and NUP. Instead of being on the same side trying to dismantle and remove a dictator. The Head of State get to see a battlefield between the ones on the other side. Museveni must be grinning and thinking…. Nyanzi couldn’t have served a better cold opening and be more self-destructive then this.
That is why even in a Open Letter on NRM.Co.Ug called her now a “comrade” and that says it all. Nyanzi should be so much better then this… but apparently this is her game right now. Instead of using her platform to advance the “defiance” or “Plan B” or anything else to challenge Museveni. She is busy going after Bobi Wine, because he isn’t acting in manner, which she is cool with.
Nevertheless, Nyanzi is maybe not the Bad Man’s crowd. Nyanzi maybe hope the international supporters will by her poems and next book. God knows what her next stage in her career. As her political gambit didn’t pay-off in the first play. She needs some sort of guidance. This isn’t it… unless, she wants less friends.
Bobi Wine has backers and they will help him out. Just like others have helped Besigye and other opposition candidates. This is just how the game goes. The diaspora cannot afford to shelter everyone. Neither can the backers of the FDC. Therefore, the former academic. Should ask for the safety from the government… who is the reason and the needs for bulletproof car and vest in the first place. The rigged court system and predetermined petition as well. Not like her party would even challenge an Presidential Election. So, why have trouble pulling out? When your man isn’t even trying to get it in the first place? He wasn’t even hitting that with his bare-feet?
Therefore, Nyanzi better call Kasangeti and get some feedback. We all understand why she left and that is within reason. Now, that she did that for her safety. She should be the first to understand why others see it important to safeguard their leader. Just like it was fine when Besigye added features to his own SUV back-in-the-day. It all made sense then and it does now.
Also, why have problems with withdrawal, when you men doesn’t even try to hit a shorty up? Your gang didn’t even join the dance and don’t even want to see if they have a shot in the first place? That’s because they have already been told in the past they weren’t all that in the past. This is why the FDC isn’t doing it.
Bobi Wine did campaign. The NUP did challenge within its capacity and they gotten much more weight in the game. It is not all lost. Neither is it for the FDC. However, they both need each other and can make it stronger. However, this bickering here is only making things weaker.
Nyanzi should know better, but maybe people like are asking to much. Maybe she has had enough and needs to vent indefinitely. Maybe she was scorned by the loss in the Election and blame the head of the party who made it happen. God knows, but I don’t….
Nevertheless… in this instance. Nyanzi is in the wrong and doing no good. Doing no good to herself and neither to her cause. If she want change and wants to make difference. She could be on the barricades, but here she’s throwing stones at a ally. Just because he got a car and shown the world how entangled the judges was with the dictator. However, that wasn’t enough for Nyanzi. Who is safe and sound in Nairobi. Peace.
