Opinion: Museveni’s own pigsty

After the assassination attempt on General Katumba Wamala this week. The President have again called the assassins or killers ‘pigs’ that he will hunt down. He has again promised leads and that they will be hunted down. However, we know the drill and know this will be a never ending story.

Just like other cases of the recent years. These deaths, murders and extra judicial killings will have no end. The state is sanctioning it and allowing it too happen. The murders of either high ranking officials and civil activists is happening on broad-day-light and the boda-boda assassins are trailing their victims before taking aiming at the target. Therefore, this isn’t new, but a well known play at this point.

If the ones deceased are boxers, party activists, party officials, members of parliament or even generals. If it is police officers or even high ranking state officials, everyone can be taken out by this measure. The men ordered with the hit-job dips easy out after the shots been made. They will not resurface until they have a new hit-job. That’s how these things are going and that’s why they are happening on semi-regular basis.

The state clearly knows about this. Since there is never anyone charged, indicted or put on trial. Only a few handful of subjects, subjugated to a disgraceful public display before allowed to return to “normal” life.

The President has created this insecurity and his thriving on it. He gets rid of his enemies or prospects of ambition. He incites fear and ensure loyalty to death. Everyone can become a target and he has a group loyally silencing anyone he likes. That is the power he has and enjoys it.

That’s why he uses the same rhetoric. The same baseless narrative and promises to crush things. Because, it is not like he can create or develop things. It is easier to deplete, annihilate and completely destroy.

This is why this is his dirty pigsty. The rotten game, old food, half-eaten bugger filled vegetables and smelly dirt filled with pig feces. The unbearable stench it was the President has created. He has ensured the pigs can roll, dip and move-on. They don’t need to value life and can kill. The amount of bullets doesn’t matter, as long as the ones they aim at dies. This is why they shot at the General’s car over 50 times week. Still, even with all those loads of bullet. They still couldn’t the General.

However, the same gentlemen and the same groups have succeeded in the past. Their missions have been successful. They have had missions complete. The ones who they sought got dropped and smoked. They got ghosted and their tally got registered. The ones who ordered the hit got their pay-off and they moved-on. The President called them ‘pigs’ and awaited the next prey.

Now, this is the game the state plays and its getting old. If these wasn’t men or people ordered by the high above. If it wasn’t untouchables. They would have been slaughtered and been taken in to custody. They wouldn’t be mass killers and gotten away with these senseless killings.

That is what’s happening and the President has created this pigsty. He is accepting and letting the pigs go wild. He is letting them stench up the place and leave the dead behind. It is tragic and devastating, but still a fact.

What remains is for this too stop, but don’t count on it. If it did stop. It would only be temporary until the President and his men finds new target to prey upon. Peace.
