Opinion: Bikoy charged with libel, so Project Sodoma was a political hit-job then?

Here we go again. It is for a reason, why someone who leaked the videos and the supposed narco-list in the Philippines, suddenly is charged with Cyber Libel and can possible spend up to 8 years behind bars. This is Bikoy, who released a who’s-who list of opposition members, clergy and whatnots, who is against Duterte and claimed he had videos, which incriminated these to conspire to topple the President.

Alas, someone has lost it and certainly, the man who did is in serious trouble. Bikoy is now facing the Republic Act 10175 – Cybercrime Prevention Act of September 12, 2012, Section 4 – Libel. Which stipulate, the possible offence and sentencing to be up to years. This is a hard punishment for the crime in question, but also made like this. Therefore, that if people break this law and falsely accuse and misuse their rights of publishing. They can pay fines and spend time behind bars for doing so.

That Bikoy now is charged with this, prove that the alleged Project Sodoma was questionable at best. It was a forged narrative and not real, that the whole speculations of this, was made to enforce and criminalize several of opposition figures and the ones who are critical of the President. In a way, that make them commit treasonous acts. However, that cannot be true, if the man behind the leak is charged with cyber libel, then it doesn’t add up.

A man who leaks this is charged and into custody. Surely, this shows that the whole play was foul. Because, if the man who did it and showed it the world, was fake and a fraud. It cannot be real, if your taken in for cyber libel for the released content. It is that simple.

If he wasn’t taken in, and the Solicitor General, the Department of Justice and everyone investigating Project Sodoma, would show another result. Instead, we are seeing and the press is showing, that the man leaking it is taken snaps of and shown with his mug-shot. Clearly, that is not a sign of confidence, for the ones thinking the Project Sodoma was real.

It seems like a very bad movie, not even a B-Movie. The ones straight to DVD with bad CGI and actors who couldn’t make it to Hollywoood. The ones who think they are hot-shots, but is really TV-Theatre at best.

That is what this seems. I had a feeling this was a political hit-job, but with the fella in question charged with libel. It proves that the hunch was correct. That the ones playing this one out, didn’t really have the content or evidence to back it up. If they did, then the mastermind, the leaker behind it. Would have challenged the opposition members in question in court, not be there himself as a suspect.

Feel me, Project Sodoma, smells like hoax, taste like a hoax and is most likely a hoax. Halo-Halo anyone? Peace.

MYCAT: Press Release – Global Tiger Day 2019 (28.07.2019)

Opinion: Annoy the Presidents of our time, expect the authorities to knock-on your door!

 

Well, were living the year 2019 and some things doesn’t change, the Excellences and the high above are still filled with vanity, which even make the kings of the middle-ages a bit jealous. They are all living in mansions, having power to end people’s lives and give it those who begs them mercy. That is who these men are, these President who has the armies behind them, have security organizations and have the police. If they are lucky, they have appointed all parts of the Courts, to ensure and secure the verdicts of Court cases to go their way.

That is why, it is dangerous to paint or play with photographs of the President of out day. If you do so in Burundi. You will get into trouble and get possible jail time. The same can happen, if you put a hijab over the Tanzanian President. You will get into legal trouble too. If you make a mockery of the United States President Trump in a cartoon, you might even be sacked from your newspaper. The same might happen if you mock the elite and the President in Kenya too. In Rwanda political satire is banned and also political cartoons, because of the fragile mind of the President. He cannot handle that someone makes fun of him and his ways. His vanity self-destruct, every time someone write something funny about him. That is why Kigali is so clean, because nobody is writing silly cartoons about the President. In China, Winne the Pooh, Peppa Pig and other cartoons are banned, as they have been used to mock the President and he cannot handle that. That is why they are banned too. That is just the way the world moves these days. The freedom of speech is limited to these men.

You better not speak of their wives, their kids, whose possible succession is on the horizon. If you do so or call a President a thief, a liar and hypocrite. Expect that you will be arrested and taken to the Courts. No one annoys a modern day President like Museveni on Facebook. No one dares writing something offensive. Especially not something, that might even be true. Because, your only supposed to publish content that has been written by syncopates like Uganda Media Centre, NRM SOMA or GCIC. The rest are supposed to Netflix and Chill, not speak up against the President.

That is just the world we live in, where it is dangerous to annoy our Presidents. They are so high and mighty, but show shallow and prestigious. They are representing us and the citizens of the state, but they are only supposed to kneel to their majesties, not mock them or speak the truth about them. No, we are all supposed to blindly following their footsteps and be honoured to share the same air as them.

We are really living in interesting times, when were supposed to be educated and be able to function as human beings. Where our leadership is supposed to represent us and govern us. Not be almighty gentlemen, who thinks its their right to govern us, they are there because someone has too. It could be their cousin for Gods sake, it could be our nephew, but it is them. Well, they don’t get that and thinks its their divine right and therefore, we better not shatter their calm. That is just the way it is.

As long as we accept this nonsense, that we cannot challenge, cannot joke or poke at the leadership of our time. Than, they will act live demigods, acts like they are above the rest and use the power to assault our freedom. Piece by piece, legislation by legislation. That is just the way it is. Don’t expect gifts, when they are only taking things away.

We need to annoy our Presidents, they need to get annoyed and think why we are doing so. Because, we have the rights to play, critique and ask questions, because they are there for us. Not the other way around. Peace.

Opinion: Duterte won the Midterms 2019!

The Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte can be acclaimed the victor of the 13th May 2019 Midterms, as his candidates all across the board is sealing their victory. The preliminary results within the 24 hours after the polls was already making it look like a landslide and that was all on unofficial results. Now, that more and more results is out. The proof is in the pudding.

There is no denying it, the magic twelve, the 12 Senators of these Midterms is people in favour and associated with the President. All of them is on board and the Opposition Candidates are not able to get in. Not as its only small canvassing left of the votes. Even with the glitches and the problematic SD-Cards, the results are still the same. The ones whose blessed with endorsement from the President has all become part of the magic twelve.

There are also the knowledge of the local governments where allies, associates and former workers of the President have won seats, mayoral or positions of representatives. This is all across the board. They have been announced and the truth is out.

What we have seen is some questionable things, what is more defining is the lack of value of the ballots, as this is prolonging suspension, as the Senators are not finalized after 48 hours. Tomorrow, it will be a week since the 13th May to 20th May 2019.

Because, it is rare, that the official results takes this long time. That we’re on the 6 day since the polls and the COMELEC is not able to issue the Official Results. As they are still partial for the Senators. Still, these results are showing that the President is getting his endorsed candidates.

This seems also likely in the local governments all around. By all means, there districts and towns, where mayors are in opposition, but these are either retaining their place or a minor victory. As there are several of others in the area, where the ones in association of the President are getting positions. Therefore, this is a slam dunk.

The results, the victories been made on both local level and national level is a sign that the President and his associates got a strong grip on power. That the politicking and bargaining will continue, as the dynasties, the plunders and others are still in the realm of power. These people are in and around the President. He might speak vile about corruption, but some of the people he has endorsed are plunders and been charged for that.

President Duterte has won this one, nothing else to say and that the opposition are wiped out. They are really hit hard, even as the COMELEC haven’t delivered proper polls, because the announcing of official results has taken so long. This jeopardize the results and also the credibility of the polls. This is well-known facts and also is a worrying sign. It should have been done quickly and not over this long time.

Duterte should be worried about COMELEC, unless he wants that to stain his victory and possibly next election. As the Commission needs to be revamped and secured enough funds for the up-coming elections.

The President have won now, but if they want to look totally good. The COMELEC needs something, the system needs upgrades, as the days goes by, the strength of the election dwindles. Since, it shouldn’t be this hard to count the ballots. Peace.
