Maldives: People’s Majlis Secretariat Press Release (24.07.2017)

The New York Gang, apparently again not so transparent since Kushner, Manafort and Trump Junior are all having their Senate Hearings behind closed doors!

 

If ever President Trump complains about former FBI director James Comey or Attorney General Jeff Sessions, know that they had the courage and the capacity to be asked in public about their acts and their meetings that was involving the Russian Probe. Not that Sessions said much or could recall anything, at least he could sit there and take it like a man. I respect that part, not that I like the AG Sessions, but give credit where it is due.

On the other hand, the rest of the New York Gang, who had the famous June 2016 meeting are this week been called for public hearings and questioned by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Where Senator Grassley sadly has accepted that Jared Kushner, he is the man who can solve all crisis, Donald Trump Junior, the current chief of Trump Organization, and former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort will testify behind closed doors! They cannot be perceived as transparent ever again, they cannot even tell the truth under oath on C-Span.

What a weak brigade of gangsters, who cannot even take their plausible interactions with foreign officials and questions about their possible lies and ever changing stories into the public sphere. It is as if they got too much to hide and has only dropped a few tears, and not the whole bucket of water, but that is just how me sensei see it!

Not like the Trump Organization or the President likes transparency, if not he would have showed the world when running as nominee or even as Presidential Candidate the IRS Tax Returns, for himself and his business. However, with the shady backdrop of business transactions of the so-called empire. It would be more believable if it was not just a spreadsheet of possible values as been given ever since.

It is not like the son-in-law Kushner has all truthful in the paper-trial on the revised forms; there are always coming new loans and estates, businesses and people that he met. However, he still have security clearance and possibility to do as he please. The same has been done by AG Sessions, he did not disclose meeting with foreign officials when sworn-in. Therefore, the New York Gang is not about the transparency, not the one in the Presidents eye, Trump Junior who is so transparent, had to revise his story three times over the weekend about the Russian meeting, as more people connected became news.

So that these people are now behind closed doors and not sworn-in under oath as Jack Tapper reported yesterday is insane and show how little integrity and pride for the Republic the New York Gang, if they had nothing to hide. Why not release all call-logs, e-mail chains and all sort of data in combination with the questionable meetings with Sergey Kislyak and other Russian during the Trump Campaign. Why not release the documentation for instance on the financial transactions in/with Russia? That is if, you want to be up-front and has nothing to hide, but clearly you do, since you have no interest doing so in the past and neither today.

That is why the President blames both democrats and republicans on Capitol Hill for not supporting him. As if it is their issue, that the President has not been truthful and knows what troubles he is in. The Presidency might be powerful, but is not all-powerful. The President is neither a monarch nor God. Therefore, it times to drink the Kool-Aid and revise, maybe even come forward. It will cost, cost so much and the efforts to undermine the democracy and state should go. Not that they will, since they have it and they will not let it go.

We will not know what sort of intelligence or information that comes out of the closed-doors meeting in the senate. That will come later in reports, if not in drip-drops like everything in this matter. I hope that Robert Mueller, the Special Investigator into the case will find some insights and can dig deeper in the New York Gang. Therefore, the truth and the most likely collusion can come forward with all of the federal charges that the Trump Organization might have committed. Since it has been all hidden, until he took public office and were scrutinized.

We know of some dealings and some shady practices, some lacking payments of contractors, of salaries and even being behold to agreements. That has been shown, also that the Trump Tower was helped by mafia to withhold the work force in the midst of strikes. In addition, the frauds like Trump University and others, where the striking salesperson Trump used his name to trick people to buy into the “get-rich-scheme”. He cannot use the gig now in the same manner and a person like Mueller has fried bigger fish than him. I cannot wait to read his reports and his investigation documents. When they are released, whenever that might be, the whole operation and the details will shed light on the dark secrets the New York Gang has so desperately hidden. Peace.

Pardon me Trump, you are not above the law Part II

I have to continue since you are so persistent in your belief that you are greater and grander than the law. It should be insulting the American people and the Constitution to have such a President like you Trump. Who has the audacity to put himself on the pedestal and think he could do anything to anyone and then get away it with it. It is insulting and beneath the office and beneath the possible position your are holding at the moment. Donald J. Trump, you act like thief and act like disgrace in the White House. If you we’re innocent and your family we’re the same? Why need to be pardoned. If the Trump Campaign and the Trump Organization was clean of guilt, why need the pardon? Do you think the American people are that ignorant and stupid, to not see this. The whole world see it and how you are eaten inside by the guilt of your association and use of Russian questionable financial transaction to keep yourself afloat.

Because of this and your continues allegations and attacks on peers. Your misuse of power and your wish to undermine the American democracy and institutions. It is time to again. Go back in time, last time it was the advice Richard Nixon asked for days before his impeachment for obstruction against justice. The same sort of acts President Trump is currently doing and undermining the law as much as he can. Therefore I have to go back to a document based in 1998, when Law Professor Rotunda are writing to Judge Kenneth Starr on indictment. This was on the matter of then President Bill Clinton. But worth noting certain fragments of document to show the capacity President Trump has under current legislation. Not that he understands it, unless it 140 words or explained to him on ‘Fox and Friends’. Still, worth noting though!

For Example, if the President in a moment of passion slugs an irritating heckler, he has committed a criminal battery. But no one would suggest that the President should be removed from office simply because of an assault. Yet the President has no right to assault hecklers. If there is no recourse against the President, if he cannot be prosecuted for violating the criminal laws, he will be above the law. Clinton vs. Jones rejected such an immunity; instead, it emphatically agreed with the Eight Circuit that: “the President, like other officials, is subject to the same laws that apply to all citizens”. The “rational for official immunity is inapposite where only personal, private conduct by a President is a issue”. The President has no immunity in such a case. If the Constitution prevents the President from being indicted for violations of one or more federal crime statutes, even if those statutory violations are not impeachable offences, then the Constitution authorizes the President to be above the law. But the Constitution creates an Executive Branch with the President under sworn obligation to faithfully executive the law. The Constitution does not create an absolute Monarch above the law” (Rotunda, P: 5, 1998).

As Nixon vs. Sirica carefully noted: “Because impeachment is available against all ‘civil officers of the United States’ not merely against the President, it is difficult to understand how many immunites peculiar to the President can emanate by implication from the fact of impeachability”. Moreover, it would be anomalous and aberrant to interpret the Impeachment Clause to immunize the President for alleged criminal acts, some which occurred prior to the time he assumed the Presidency and all far removed from any of the President’s enumerated duties: witness tampering, destruction of documents, subornation of perjury perjury, illegal pay-offs” (Rotunda, P: 7, 1998).

Later, in Clinton v. Jones, the Court rejected any notion of Presidential immunity (even a temporary immunity) for the President who is sued by a private civil litigant for damages involving acts not within his Presidential duties. In that case, President Clinton’s “strongest argument” supporting his claim for immunity on a temporary basis, the Court said, was the claim that the President occupies a “unique office” and burdening him with litigation would violate the constitutional separation of powers and unduly interfere with the President’s performance of his official duties” (Rotunda, P: 36, 1998).

These factors all buttress and lead to the same conclusion: it is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting President for serious criminal acts that are not part of, and are contrary to, the President’s official duties. In this country, no one, even President Clinton, is above the law” (Rotunda, P: 55, 1998).

This conclusion does not imply that a President must be required to serve an actual prison term before he leaves office. The defendant President could remain free pending his trial, and the trial court could defer any prison sentence until he leaves office. The defendant-President may petition the courts to exercise its discretion in appropriate cases. It is one thing for the President to petition the court to exercise its discretion; it is quite another for the President to announce that he is above the law and immune from criminal prosecution” (Rotunda, P: 55, 1998).

This letter of Law Professor Rotunda states very clearly the provisions and special place within the Republic the President has and the laws that needs to be extended to prosecute him/her. So with this in mind, no one not even President Clinton was above the law. The same scenario remains today with President Trump. That Nixon tried to find ways to pardon himself is clear, the same does now President Trump.

The possible collusion and collaboration with foreign officials and entities will be more clear as the investigation and drops of information leaks to the press. The more meetings, lack of disclosure from the Trump Organization and the Trump Campaign. The same is it his family and associates, as long as the narrative still exists and there are plot-lines to define. The story will live on and the investigators will look into the possible breaches. The Office of Special Council Robert Mueller has lots of power. Something, President Trump cannot stop. Therefore, Tucker Carlson and others trying to gain leverage and saying the investigation makes everything in Mosciw illegal, like buying cigarettes in Moscow. That show’s the disrespect of a criminal investigation by the Trump Friendly Press like Fox News and Sinclair Media.

While that goes on, the 1998 letter show’s that the President can be prosecuted and is not a person who cannot be put on trial. What is different unless there is a special court and trial, the criminal offenses done before his Presidential Term and his sentencing has to be served after his term. That because of the Executive Branch and the august role of government the President are. Certainly, ironic writing that while describing Trump.

This will be lines from the letter, that says the most for me, because the criminal offenses before the Presidential Term: “it would be anomalous and aberrant to interpret the Impeachment Clause to immunize the President for alleged criminal acts, some which occurred prior to the time he assumed the Presidency and all far removed from any of the President’s enumerated duties: witness tampering, destruction of documents, subornation of perjury perjury, illegal pay-offs” (Rotunda, 1998).

So obstruction of justice, which is witness tampering and destruction of documents are likely things that people knows Trump has done or wanting to do. That is why Special Investigator Mueller has asked the government and White House to keep their documents relating to Russian affairs and the known meetings with Russians. So the investigation looks into the possible crimes of the Presidency before and also, within, but the impeachment would happen with a federal grand jury, where the President is sentenced for crimes, which is not in the President’s Office duties. So, the possible grand jury are there as much as it was for Nixon and was for Clinton. No difference for Trump, unless the House of Representatives and Senators at the Congress are spineless individuals who are all loyal to Moscow and Russians like Trump. Peace.

Kenya: NASA Condems Plans for Military Involvement in Election (23.07.2017)

My honest letter to the now lost Hon. Beti Kamya!

Dear Beti Kamya!

There are so many words to describe you right now, but I will be frank and honest. Since you have turned 360 around. It seems like in your lifetime you have gone from a fierce critic of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. To accept being a Minister in his bloated Royal Cabinet in the 10th Parliament in charge of the Ministry of Kampala. Where you are sanctioning your wisdom, controlling the City Hall and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA). You seem to enjoy playing cards with Executive Director Dr. Jennifer Musisi and Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago. The role of Minister seems to fit you well, since you prefer ordering, not guiding or leading. That is why you suddenly have said this during the last two days, which is both flabbergasting!

Hon. Beti Kamya says Museveni is a gift from God who should rule beyond 75 years. She says age limit must be lifted” (NTV Uganda, 21.07.2017).

For the little time I have worked with the president, I find him, a very informed and tolerant leader. I sit in cabinet every Wednesday, but actually I think he is more intelligent than cabinet combined. Therefore, you just can’t do away with him,” Beti Kamya” (The New Vision, 22.07.2017).

You have in the past asked if President Museveni had a heart, she wrote a piece on that in 2008. I think you have forgotten that, aye? Also, you said this in 2011: “We must get rid of Museveni by all means because he has become a Monster”. Seem like heart has change and your mind at the same started to praise the man with no heart and who you said was a monster.

In the past you have worked against him, back in the day even been a part of the Reform Agenda and part of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) before joining your own struggle with the Uganda Federal Alliance (UFA). With your recent statements you can wonder if you have forgotten this history. Since your statements now counter all what you worked for in the past. The 360 is to visible and unbelievable. Your like a political Mwenda. Andrew Mwenda was a starch critic against the NRM and Museveni at KFM Radio, but over the years he is sounding more like crony and a partisan support of the regime. Now the same has happen to you!

Beti Kamya, I wonder how does it feel to trade your values and political beliefs for the safety and being loyal to the regime despised. Seems like you traded away all of your belief of who the President was for something else. You were a critic with finesse and words. Now Beti, you are crony and praising him onto levels beyond reasoning. Since, you who knows his track-record and his past. Knows that your words aren’t true.

President Museveni is only using Honorable Kamya, you might not want to hear this, but that is the fact. He is using you and your former stances, to prove that he cannot be so bad after all. Since has given way and let you inside his cabinet and fold. You who was a fierce critic and said he had no heart and was monster. So when you this week says he is “gift from god”, “tolerant leader” and “I think he is more intelligent than cabinet combined”. We know something has changed you and busted your brains.

If he was a gift from god, would he need to rig the elections? Would he need to kill innocent people in Kasese? If he was a tolerant leader, why is the FDC leadership near prison sentences every time they conduct public meetings? If he is so intelligent, why does is his NAADs, SACCOs, Youth Livelihood Project and all other public schemes fail?

You should already know this, but your hooked on the power of your ministry and want to be a loyal subject. You want the good graces, you want the services provided and police security of your home. You want the paid SUV, the perks of an MP and become a giant in politics. An by doing so you had to align yourself with your enemy. That you have done Beti and very well. You now sing of praise and begs for his mercy. Your of joy of getting all of this. Therefore, you are praising him to make sure he doesn’t take it away.

That is his wisdom, he got you and your taken by him. He knows this since your in his hand and he knows as long as your there. You wouldn’t dare rebel or act all out. Even if that was your core belief. Since you are there, you have traded it all and given him, you as a platform and you let him use you. This is sad, very sad, it is astonishing that you have let him. Alas, there we are and this is what we see.

You have gone from being a true opposition, a fighter for justice and democratic values, to become a spineless crony of Museveni. How surely you must be proud of yourself! Peace.

IGP Kale Kayihura orders all Public Meetings concerning the Constitutional Amendment Act of 2017 have to notify the Police (21.07.2017)

House of Lords recommend flexible approach to migration because of Brexit!

The United Kingdom and their tales of glory, the former Empire and giant industrial hub of Europe, clearly have forgotten their place and trying to distance themselves from Europe. It will not be as easy as the Brexiteers and the Conservative Party. The Tories has to find their way while the negotiations are continuing with the European Union (EU). The leaving will cause grand-issues with migrations and also how the borders will close or be have different visa procedures. Therefore, the labour market and businesses will be hurt by this. Not only the direct trading between the UK and EU, but who get ability to be hired and who cannot come and work in low-educated jobs and low payed jobs. This is what the House of Lords looked into, and it is important to look into the matter. Because the matter isn’t straight forward. The answer is more flexible than what the UKIP and Brexit supporters inside the Conservative Party. Just take a look!

Labour and Immigration:

EU nationals make up 7 per cent of the total workforce. The Labour Force Survey provides estimates of the number of EU nationals working in particular sectors and the proportion they make up of the overall total. For example, the concentration of EU nationals is significantly higher in some sectors, reaching 14.2 per cent in accommodation and food services” (House of Lords, P: 19, 2017).

We strongly recommend that the Government develop a new immigration policy for implementation once the UK has left the European Union. It should consult on the needs of business and on a

time frame for implementing the new policy. Any new immigration system should not make an arbitrary distinction between higher skilled and lower-skilled work on the basis of whether a job requires an undergraduate degree. British businesses must have access to expertise and skills in areas such as agriculture and construction that would at present be categorised as lower-skilled occupations” (House of Lords, P: 24, 2017).

Lack of Migration workers – higher cost for consumers:

As some of our witnesses highlighted, pay is not the only consideration but there are now a large number of migrant workers in some sectors who will not easily be replaced by domestic workers. Competitive labour markets will see some price adjustment in response to labour shortages, with an associated increase in local labour supply. However, in some sectors, business models may have to change. As noted in the example of agriculture, this is likely to lead to higher prices for consumers” (House of Lords, P: 26, 2017).

We warned in our 2008 report on immigration that employment of migrant workers could lead to businesses neglecting skills and training for British workers. As the example of nursing highlights, these fears appear to have been realised. Training for the domestic workforce needs urgently to be given a higher priority” (House of Lords, P: 28, 2017).

The Government must also acknowledge that in order to achieve some of its other policy objectives, such as building 225,000–275,000 new homes each year, lower-skilled immigration may be required in the medium term to provide the necessary labour” (House of Lords, P: 31, 2017).

The objective of having migration at sustainable levels is unlikely to be best achieved by the strict use of an annual numerical target for net migration. Instead, such a target runs the risk of causing considerable disruption by failing to allow the UK to respond flexibly to labour market needs and economic conditions, as the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union has suggested is necessary. The objective of reducing migration to sustainable levels should be implemented flexibly and be able to take account of labour market needs, in particular during the implementation period” (House of Lords, P: 37, 2017).

You can easily see and envision the lack of agricultural short-term workers for heavy and low-paying jobs. This has to be hired by others and if they are UK citizens and such, they will not work for slice, but wont the whole pizza. That is why the end-game will be more cost for the consumer for what they in the past paid less for. Since the salaries of the UK citizens over the migrant worker are vastly different. Also, the possible problems of getting enough nursers and other educated to take the low-paying civil servants positions needed in the National Health Service. The House of Lords report can really show the implications of the migration and labour market the Brexit will have. Unless, the UK are planning such a soft border and open for EU nationals, than the changes will not be like night and day, but more like a similar day and just a little bit later on the same day.

Then the whole anti-Europe parades and campaigning lost. Since the Brexit became a shell of what it was supposed to be. It will be good for Europe and a pain for the Right in the UK. Certainly, the Farage’s of the world will hate this sort of report. Since the needed flexibility flexes against the will of the UKIP and Brexiteers amongst the Tories. They will be attacking this sort of report. Even if the Lords are impartial and uses accurate data. This shows the estimated effects of Brexit and the words of the Lords wasn’t dim! It can bring hope to Europe, but if the government will follow the recommendations and advise from the Lords; is something that time only can tell. Since the Tories would be showing weaker will to implement the idea behind the Brexit election, if they follow the advice of the Lords. That is not a easy bargain, but who said it would be? Peace.

Pardon me Trump, but you are not above the law!

It is one of these rare moments, when the powerful and executives understand how hard their case are failing, how much dirt and how much sinister outrage that will come out an investigation, that they will do and use all kind means to get there. That is the state of affairs within the New York Gang aka White House aka Trump Organization aka Russian Mob. There are just too much collusion and shade of grey to cease to amaze. The connections and inner-works. If President Trump was innocent, he would threat and sack law officers like James Comey or trying to figure out how to do it to Special Investigator Robert Mueller. He would have continued to spend time at Trump Resorts and played golf. Instead, he does this:

“Trump has asked his advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe, according to one of those people. A second person said Trump’s lawyers have been discussing the president’s pardoning powers among themselves Trump’s legal team declined to comment on the issue. But one adviser said the president has simply expressed a curiosity in understanding the reach of his pardoning authority, as well as the limits of Mueller’s investigation” (Washington Post, 20.07.2017).

It seems like the President knows his predicament and trying to figure a way out and not leave scores of hurt for his family and his empire. Since Mueller is extending his team and his efforts into investigations. That is why Trump are disgusted with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the Russian Probe and answered out of loyalty to the Senate. Certainly, the tale of how the President will maneuver and act is not predicable, but he will only act in own interests and not for the sake of justice. If so, he would have given more funding to the works that former FBI director Comey was doing. Alas, he did not. The specialness out of it all, is that President Richard Nixon, asked the same questions about possible pardoning of himself and his team. Just days before his end of reign. Here is what the then Department of Justice representative wrote on the matter in 1974!

“Presidential or Legislative Pardon of the President:

Under the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case, the President cannot pardon himself. If under the Twenty-Fifth Amendment the President declared that he was temporarily unable to perform the duties of the office, the Vice President would become Acting President and as such could pardon the President. Thereafter the President could either resign or resume the duties of his office. Although as a general matter Congress cannot enact amnesty or pardoning legislation, because to do so would interfere with the pardoning power vested expressly in the President by the Constitution, it could be argued that a congressional pardon granted to the President would not interfere with the President’s pardoning power because that power does not extend to the President himself. August 5, 1974” (Mary C. Lawton, Presidential or Legislative Pardon of the President – 1974).

So now, the President is looking for a way out. The road ahead looks rocky for the President who has internal shake-ups and well as finding the best way out the scandal and mess. Who does not look better for by every day that passes by. The more people look into his business, his New York Gang and everything with his name. It turns sour.

Just as CBS News reports: “There’s been a shakeup in President Trump’s legal team. Marc Kasowitz is out as Mr. Trump’s personal attorney, CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett reports. And Kasowitz’s spokesman, Mark Corallo, has resigned, Garrett says.The reasons for the moves were not immediately known” (CBS News, 2017).

The legal team that now have to defend the President is Ty Cobb, Jay Sekulow and John Dowd. Clearly, these men has enormous challenge ahead as the legal case are growing and the relationships, the financial transactions and the whole Trump Organization is scrutinized by the Mueller investigation. Nothing is left to fate and see, it is checked and verified by the ones who has the authority. Even as the threats and the rumors of firing Mueller have come as well. Just as he fired Comey, but how much tampering with his own investigation can the American people.

If he we’re to fire Mueller, he had to fire Attorney General Sessions, who would give way to Deputy AG Rosenstein, who could appeal the Special Counsel, but if he doesn’t, that means that the President has to fire him as well. Than if possible repeal the act that gives authority to the investigation. That seem far-fetched, but if all botched ideas comes into play and Trump see this as a way out.

My final question, if this Russian Probe was not anything and had no real life effect. Why would Mr. President try to figure out the Powers of the Presidential Pardons?

Since, that is not an authority sanctioned with ease and for fun, except to few turkeys now and then. The rest of the time to serious offenders or for people wrongfully detained and incarcerated. That sort of act has not been done in favor of people close to the President and his family. Clearly, the President thinks that he is beyond and above the law. Peace.

Norbert Mao’s unique experience yesterday; how it opens up the question if it was a real arrest!

When I saw the Democratic Party President residing and discussing change on NBS Frontline, I was shocked, he were arrested in few hours before and the DP headquarters was supposed to be sealed off. What happen there from the morning and the start of the campaign against the abolishment of Article 102 (b) and it seemed fair that the Police did this. When knowing what it did to fellow opposition leaders in the Forum for Democratic Change.

“Arrested for launching campaign against Land And Age Limit Amendments. Our spirits and resolve are strong. The police should not manhandle our people who are constitutionally mandated to exercise their rights. Ugandans join us in the struggle” (Norbert Mao, 20.07.2017).

Well, what amaze me is that in the Police Station he was drinking Pepsi and waiting to be released, not looking bothered by the place he was in. The pictures speak for themselves; we have seen when others been arrested and how they feel. They look miserable and a bit fatigued. However, honorable Mao was just waiting for it soon to be over. There even been rumors that DP Youth and Activist came to his rescue and wanted him free. However, they were getting threats of arrests. So Mao told them to scatter and do not save him.

The whole in retrospect seems a bit strange, since the FDC leaders are still lingering together in the maximum prison of Nalufenya far from where they was arrested in and around Kasangati in Wakiso District. This clearly shows who the real opposition to the NRM are! Since the arranged detaining of Mao had no dire consequence. He could wash it off and spend time talking against Museveni again on NBS TV Frontline, like nothing happen earlier in the day.

Norbert Mao, the former harsh and real critic of Musevenism and the NRM, what have you done? How can this be, in one moment your acts and the parties acts get you into trouble, a few hours later your on stage discussing politics and debating on NBS. AIGP Asan Kasingye even said this: “we just accompanied him to police”. If it is so, then the whole ruckus was a forged and staged affair from both the authorities and the DP. This does not look good. To be clear it insightful to the place Mao has in the political landscape.

If a FDC leader and FDC President were to be detained, he would have been there to late night and any sort arrangement later in the day would have to be postponed, because the authorities would not care. They could even leave you behind bars so you do not get the opportunity to meet in court to answer for another of your crimes. That has happen and will surely happen again, especially since the NRM continues to use the Police Force for political gains!

So the play-play of the matter is still at large and how the outcome will be, if this was a façade or a real deal, I am not sure, because the interesting picture from the Police Station together with the Police Force spokesperson seems odd, in the sense that the fighting in the streets was real and the brutal arrests. However, the aftermath and the ease of getting out of there. Make the whole thing seem a bit strange. Not real, not genuine. The reality of the matter is very unclear.

Because the narrative is not that he got arrested, but the demonstration got squashed, he went on NBS TV and the FDC leaders are still lingering in jail for doing the same acts. This shows the double standard of the Police who with ease are throwing the FDC behind bars, but letting the DP President go. That is what is so rare and shows the reality of his position. The Good DP are so good and can therefore get away. However, if he was Bad DP he might have ended in the hospital.

These sorts of acts adds to the speculations and the arrangement of shadow deals done by the DP and the NRM. Since they are getting away and sipping soda at the Police Station, while the FDC are taken away in haste. Clearly, the reality and the perceived are playing games on you. The strangest of it is that the Police Force was not claiming it and brushing it off. While Mao was condemning the Police and hours later appearing with his usual grin on NBS Frontline. That is just rare and special. If this had happen to Besigye or even Muntu, the whole NRM would praise democracy, but alas it is not so.

This is just the state of affairs and what is beneath the surface is hard to know, but if it is rocks, dirt or oil. Who knows, but what we do know was this whole arrangement looks staged and sounds staged. It is just the matter of how deep the matter goes and who sanctioned it. Peace.
