Brexit: Jeremy Hunt MP letter to Boris Johnson MP (21.06.2019)

MP Zaake’s Magical Journey has ended!

“MP Francis Zaake off the hook. Grade one magistrate Swaleh Asiku, has acquitted the Mityana Municipality MP, Francis Zaake of the case of escaping from Police custody in Arua on August 14, 2018, a day before the Arua Municipality by-election” (New Vision, 21.06.2019).

Well, the lies and deception is finally over. As the tortured soul post Arua By-Election 2018 has now gotten one final verdict on one of his charges. The Member of Parliament Francis Zaake was charged with escaping Police Custody. Even if the Security Officers dropped him off at a hospital after days in unknown territory last year.

Therefore, the whole process and justification of the charge has been bogus and a bogey since get-go. There been no justification or within reason to charge the man with fleeing. When he couldn’t even walk or have capacity to run away from his own shadow. The MP was in dire need of medical attention and even struggled to get allowed to travel for visa to India.

That is why the whole case been magical journey of lies and deception. Where the state has thought they could fool everyone, but only fooled itself. Zaake is out of this charge, but surely they will pin more on him. As he is a People Power Movement MP and is a sharp critic of the regime.

Zaake is not out of the woods, but has one less charge on his name. Still, there is more Post Arua By-Election to come. Since, the state is still working on cases considering the people involved in that. It is just a matter of time, before more happens. However, we all knew that Zaake couldn’t flee last year. He couldn’t even walk nor run. He was bedside and in need of medical care. Peace.

Cameroon: President Paul Biya – “Objet: Consultation” (17.06.2019)

USA: FEC – Statement Regarding Illegal Contributions from Foreign Governments (13.06.2019)

Opinion: Boris the Blade, sorry Boris of the Tories at the helm?

Abed Nadir: “Chaos already dominates enough of our lives. The universe is an endless raging sea of randomness. Our job isn’t to fight it, but to weather it together, on the raft of life. A raft held together by those few, rare, beautiful things that we know to be predictable” (Community, Season 3, Episode 4, 2011).

Well, it the Conservative and Unionist Party, the Tories elects Boris Johnson to take over the helm after Theresa May. Surely, the Brexit will end in an utter fiasco, the party will be in shambles and the populists will get a hold of power.

Boris is the sort of man, whose had no trouble stabbing people in their back and moments later kissing their asses. That is just who he is, also is a womanizer, racist and a man of total disregard of people, except himself. An Etonian without no high regard for the common man, except when he needs their votes.

Who knows if he will beat Dominic Raab, Michael Gove, Jeremy Hunt, Matt Hancock or Rory Stewart, because this is just first of plenty of votes. Even if Boris got the best results in the first tally in the internal voting. However, this is just the start, but shows some intent.

That Boris is the frontrunner and has such a big margin from the get-go is a worry, as the signs of the tides, which are ahead. That the MPs are voting in favour of him. Shows also their fear and their reckless attitude towards it all. Boris wasn’t a smooth operator as a Foreign Secretary, he didn’t deliver anything substantial or help the Brexit Process as an Brexiteer. No, he did nearly nothing, just like several other hard-liners.

Therefore, this vote will be a shambles, this is the mere travesty, where the Tories get to have a new vote, to have a referendum on their leadership. While the public have to look at it and squint at it too. While the Tories themselves will not give the public a second chance for a snap election nor a new referendum, as the Brexit is already a beacon of self-destruction. Just that the leadership of the two major parties won’t say that, in fear of the fearmongering salesman of Nigel Farage and Company.

If Boris Johnson takes over, expect more resignations, more troubling negotiations and also fabulous expenses put without consideration of the tax-payer. That is the sort of man he is and he shows it again and again. Boris will misuse the power he has and scrap vital things, just to have the seat. He just don’t care, as long as his the king.

Boris will not bring wealth, stealth and health, only chaos.

This is the darkest timeline, surely, the Community show warned us, but we didn’t listen. It was shambolic under PM May, but will not become smooth sailing under the leadership of Johnson. He will only undermine himself and his allies, he will come with empty pledges and knowingly, know that the EU will not comply. Because, he knows this, but want to be popular in the eyes of the people, even if it means not staying true to the reality. That is why the Brexit process been such a mess and continues to be so.

Boris the Blade, Boris Johnson will not succeed, it isn’t in him. He might win this leadership contest, because of his savvy ways with political infighting, but externally. He will loose, BIG. Peace.

Burundi: CENI – Communique de Presse (13.06.2019)

RDC: Ensemble – Declaration Politique du 11 Juin 2019 (11.06.2019)

Opinion: [Nothing to see here] Museveni is not campaigning folks!

“President Yoweri Museveni has urged the people of Wakiso to avoid opposition politicians come 2021. This as he presided over the 30th Heroes day celebration in Kasanje town in Wakiso District” (NBS Television, 09.06.2019).

Well, the Electoral Commission has confessed to the public, that unless politicians are campaigning before the Election Road Map, they advice them not to do so and the authorities are allowed to strike with terrible vengeance upon them.

However, the President and his convoy are allowed to travel everywhere. His fellow comrades and supporters are saying this Operation Wealth Creation Tour, the Manifesto Week and such is just spreading the news of his achievements during this current term. However, the President have become the SOLE CANDIDATE and has been ENDORSED in every village and hut his past by. He has hold political rallies and used his usual voter tourism strategy.

We could just stand idly by the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni driving to every stage up-county like its nothing. Spending money like it is no tomorrow. But we all seen this before, as he launching 0,9 km roads and speaking ill of competitors. That is just the way he is and has been for ages. Even if he claims to be longer in opposition, than in government. Someone, please do the Math.

Alas, here we are again, short run up to the elections. No serious electoral reforms, the same rigging machinery in place another blown-up budget and surely there will be a second coming for that. As there is one more calendar year and fiscal year before the polls. There will empty state coffers and the will be several of supplementary funds, which comes to the State House. As they need extra funds for water, wages and whatnot at the State House. Not that its spending on the campaigns, t-shirts, buses, foods, entertainment and a box of Arua Stones. No, no, no, it is spend on the furniture of the President and his Presidential Advisors, all the hundred of them.

We can lie to ourselves, even if the NRM Party says his not campaigning as the sole candidate and getting endorsed. The NRM can say this doesn’t matter, because his not stipulated officially yet by the NRM CEC or NRM internally. However, this will just be rubber-stamped and move along with a photo-session where he runs and goes to the NRM EC and gets the paper by Dr. Tanga Odoi. Dr. Odoi wouldn’t dare to field another candidate against him. That would be the end of Odoi’s career and he would have to flee to Europe as quickly as possible.

Therefore, the NRM and Museveni can lie saying they haven’t been campaigning and only championing the Steady Progress paradigm, while traversing the Republic. But we all know what it is and what he does. If not, he wouldn’t need to be ENDORSED in every village by every goat, man and fellow matooki branch, but apparently he does. Peace.

Opinion: Tshisekedi is in Kabila’s mercy!

There are rumoured of a meeting again between President Felix Tshisekedi and former President Joseph Kabila, as the unholy favourable union of Kabila-Tshisekedi continues. The FCC-CACH is a victory for Kabila without doing much. He has the stakes and the minion is Tshisekedi. This is just public knowledge now.

Kabila called a meeting tomorrow, which will be in the residence of Tshisekedi, while Kabila haven’t left the Presidential Palace and doesn’t plan to do so. This is the man that ruled for long and seemingly controls it all from a distance. Tshisekedi is just a useful pawn, so that Kabila isn’t the face of the state, but still ensures that his allies are favoured. That is why the Prime Minister a former one of Mobutu and himself. It is a man Kabila can trust, not a random technocrat whose might have more qualities as leader at this point.

This is just the typical now, as the Kabila way from closed doors, that is why we are in June 2019 and the sworn-in President is still waiting in the wind to able to swear-in his own cabinet. That is because the President got no leverage or power. The FCC and allies got the MPs, got the Representatives and got the Local Governments too. The Lamuka and CACH got just mere breadcrumbs, this is known, but still Tshisekedi made a secret agreement to fit the bill.

This bill has to paid, as his is literately serving Kabila. Kabila is maybe not the President, but Tshisekedi is no one without Kabila. That is public knowledge. The FCC-CACH is a match made in hell, as the burning fires and everything Felix touches has to be confirmed by Kabila. That is a clear lost.

Felix Tshisekedi has the title and the honour, but not having the power or credibility. The President are a waterboy for Kabila. It must be a bitch to be His Excellency, but still asking for favours from the previous one. That is what he does. Surely, that is not the fate the man wanted, but it is better than being an opposition in exile. Peace.
