Opinion: Abiy’s recent move is a mandate to burn two regions to the ground

If you thought the Operation Law Enforcement in Tigray and the crackdown in Oromia could be worse. Expect the Federal Government to come with swift force and use more means. There will no reflection and the tyrant is dancing on people’s graves.

The Council of Ministers and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali statement today of classifying Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and Shene (a made-up unit of Oromo Liberation Front/Army (OLF/A). Will be used to deplete, annihilate and deplete the Tigray and Oromia. These regions are already suffering, but now the state have mechanisms to go after anyone “supporting”, “aiding” and whatnot.

Prime Minister Abiy is showing no remorse or plans to have any credible dialogue with anyone. He is just planning to kill, destroy and make people suffer. There is no supposed peaceful minute or hope in the air. This man is supposed to have people able to make it rain. The man who cannot even silence a weapon or talk to his “enemies”. That sort of man wouldn’t be able to trick the inflation or lacking domestic revenue.

This is the nail in the coffin for any peaceful resolution. The TPLF and their Tigray Defence Force (TDF) is already able to prolong a war that was supposed to end in late November 2020. The TDF is able to fight back against a Tripartite Alliance of the Ethiopian National Defence Forces (ENDF), Eritrean Defence Forces (EDF) and Amhara Para-Military Forces (Fano). These are going after TPLF/TDF. Still, they are not able to conquer them. Not even when the region faces starvation, looting, massacres and constant warfare.

The state will also continue its purge on the Oromia. Where the state has already arrested thousands of people. Where the state are using means of “Command Post” and killing civilians on the regular. The state have been relentless to the region. The use of making “Shene” as a terrorist organisation is clearly targetting the queerro and everyone else. They are just making things up and calling the dead “terrorists” after. Just like the Americans have done after drone strikes all-across Somalia in the recent years. It is the same strategy and everyone they will hunt, detain, torture or kill will be a part of Shene and be a reasonable target by the state.

This is the tyranny of the Prosperity Party and Prime Minister Abiy. The man has no heart. He only see himself as the king. Abiy will be a ‘Mad King’ . A tyrant and a liar. A man who was willing to bury the children of the Republic so he could be crowned king. This man wants to speak of elections and credible ones too. While his going to war in huge regions. Creating conflicts and not silencing the guns. These sorts of moves only entrenches the state and gives it means to an end.

Dan Jones writing about another Mad King: “John also earned a reputation as vindictive and even murderous. It was believed that in 1203 he killed his nephew and rival, Arthur of Brittany. One chronicler heard that John had done the deed himself, “after dinner, when he was drunk and possessed by the devil,” and thrown the body into the Seine. In 1208 John fell out with a close associate named William de Braose and pursued his family to destruction, starving to death William’s wife and eldest son in the dungeons of his castle. (William died in exile in France.) John mistreated hostages given to him as security for agreements: The knight William Marshal said he “kept his prisoners in such a horrible manner and in such abject confinement that it seemed an indignity and a disgrace to all those with him.”” (Dan Jones – ‘The Mad King and Magna Carta’ July 2015, Smithsonian Magazine).

This here will not make Ethiopia better, but worse. This is total destruction. It is ensuring the state has the reason to implicate people as “terrorists” without proof or cause. This is using the powers of the state to burn these regions. If you thought the “state of emergencies” of the EPRDF was bad. This will be much worse. The state of affairs is already horrific and the levels of atrocities is just growing. The massacres of Tigray and other regions is just showing the rivers of blood on the watch of this Prime Minister. His willing to let people die without any proper trial or justification. People are dying because he ordered it and his sleeping without any remorse.

Prime Minister Abiy shows his true character here. The Council of Ministers are just giving him and the state a go ahead to bury anyone who opposes it. Dissidents and activists against the Prosperity Party will not breathe. The ones who stands up to the regime in Finfinne will not get any mercy. There is only death and bloodshed ahead. It has already been so pain and suffering during this term, but he will not enforce things who are worse. That¨s because he has legality to do so. The injustice and impunity, the state can serve that to these regions and the bodies can be claimed to be “terrorists” after the fact.

Abiy has his wish and gotten a “go ahead” for extra judicial killings. Which is already happening at a worrying scale. Now he just have a label and can call them “terrorists”. That is the tragic timeline we are living in.

That people believed this man would create peace was foolish. The ones believing this man would create better dialogue and talks between parties. They were clearly wrong. Abiy will not only kill, destroy and annihilate anyone in his way. This will now happen at a large scale and anyone who they distrust. Will be in legal jeopardy and even silenced indefinitely.

Don’t be shocked if the times of “Command Post” and “State of Emergency” looks like child’s play. Because, this Prime Minister doesn’t value liberty, freedom or justice. No, this Prime Minister only wants to be remembered as a ‘Mad King’. That is who is his and the bloodbath he ordered on his watch. Peace.

Somalia: Somali National Salvation Forum letter to African Union (AU) Chair of the Peace and Security Council Amb. Mohamed Idriss Farah (21.04.2021)

Opinion: Lil Nas X is free to express himself

That Montero Lamar Hill aka Lil Nas X dropped a new video (Montero – Call Me By My Name)) – where he killed the devil and that shouldn’t harm your faith. His an artist and a musician who is free to express it the way he feels. That he sells a shoe with blood is just his prerogative. Just like 50 Cent sold water with vitamins. That was his business and now Lil Nas X has his gimmick.

Let’s be clear. I am a Christian and I don’t care what Lil Nas X does. He can do whatever he feels and is free to drop whatever he see fit. Yes, he shouldn’t be blasphemous and mock anyone’s faith. However, what I have seen of the music video. It wasn’t really all that. His just doing him and fine by me.

If we are reacting and shocked by this. Then we are forgetting about Madonna, Marilyn Manson and so many others who has used Christianity in their videos. There have even been films where main character has used the cross in a sexual manner. So, its not like this is new and it’s just a way to cause a stir or a controversy.

Lil Nas X is getting that. He is causing all the issues and the conservative is spearheading this. Like this is a destruction of society and Christianity too. Not like “Like A Prayer” or Nas’s “Hate Me Now” did it. Neither will song. They will just be controversial part of his discography.

This sort of art piece and music video isn’t for everyone. Neither is the deemed Christian music for others either. There is a time and place for everything. It is not like Lil Nas X was screwing his significant other on the altar or trying to force his belief system on anyone. He just made his entertaining piece and you decide if you want to watch it or not. Not like his forcing anyone to care or watch it.

It is just his controversial piece and his getting people to talk about him. Lil Nas X is winning this way. Not that everyone should listen to Jerusalem, Creed or Skillet. No, that is for the ones that likes that. However, there is a different crowd for that and not the ones following Lil Nas X.

Art reflects its times and the perspective of the ones composing it. The artists is free to make his pieces and do it. There been so many using Christian symbolism and even scripture without being directly Christian. Even Yelawolf was filming his video with Eminem in a Church. Where he was speaking of the Trinity and it didn’t make the world shake. Nevertheless, Lil Nas X does with his piece.

Clearly, it is a “cultural” nonsensical war. If your a person of faith like myself. You will not eat the horse-shit and accept it as an attack on it. If God is as great as the scriptures says he is. Then, I don’t fear a artist, but I fear God. If the powers of the almighty is as grandeur as the holy texts say he is. Then anyone can mock and ridicule it, but he will decide in the end our fate. That is how I see it. We all live accordingly to our conscience and believes. I will not feel targeted or insulted by Lil Nas X.

He just expressed himself and can do so. The ones saying its bad for the kids. Let the parents act like a parent. If the kids see it. Talk to the kids and let them understand it. Just like anything else they can see and browser on the internet. That is what you do and you use your parental guidance as well. That is not the role of Lil Nas X. Just like it never was Eminem’s role to raise me as youth either. Still, I listened to his music and bumped Xzibit and others too.

So, no… Lil Nas X isn’t damaging my calm or my faith. It takes more than a music video and some lyrics of his. This will not leave me into temptation and lack of faith. Instead, it will only let me reflect on it and move on. Like anything artistic should do.

Please, this selective outrage isn’t doing anyone any good. You are not showing your faith either. Just that your limiting someone’s freedom to express themselves. That serves no one any good and only shows your lack of tolerance, which is ironically counterproductive. Peace.

Opinion: Does the Nolan Principals matter anymore? [or is Boris Johnson above them?]

Prime Minster Boris Johnson is in a new scandal. His whole reign has filled with it. Somehow his skating by and getting away from it. The Cabinet Secretaries can do whatever, so can his closest associates and it doesn’t cost him anything. It is sort of his demeanour that is obnoxious.

Usually, someone in his place would act with care. A Prime Minister would be careful and wouldn’t try to keep things hidden away. Neither, not enlighten the world on his acts or what he possibly has done. Every time there been questions of inquiries into questionable spending, communication or usage of public funds. The Whitehall or Downing Street will not do it or have no plans of doing so.

The same government that can with ease return people who has been living for generations in the United Kingdom Can suddenly become exiled or sent away from what they have called home for over 20 years. The Windrush Generation could just be shipped back to the Caribbean without any hesitation. However, the same principal isn’t applicable to the Prime Minister or his Cabinet.

No, these guys can get away with anything. They are supposed to follow certain principals and guidelines as civil servants. However, those Nolan Principals isn’t worth anything. Neither is the word integrity, accountability or honesty. As the Prime Minister doesn’t care about either of these.

This man cannot be loyal or honest to his wives. A man with two ex-wives and several of mistresses. One is following another and its a steady stream of them. His now living in Downing Street with his current girlfriend. Which is fine and dandy. He can love whoever he wants, but the manner happens is troubling with his role as the Prime Minister.

Especially, when he has done so with several. The mannerism where he can be a “ladies man” and easily cheat on them. He jumps from one bedmate to another. Like his trying to have a shagaton, which he couldn’t do at Eaton. Gods know why his like this, but he clearly cannot keep his pecker in order. He just got to stick it in and do it while his respective other is somewhere else. Such a Casanova and big pimpin’ moves.

Boris Johnson isn’t just a private person. His also a head of state. That adds much pressure on his personal life and life choices. At that sort of position. You cannot act like a nonchalant pick-up artist. Even if the office gives you more finesse and ability to get laid. That has been the downfall of plenty leaders in history and they have to resign for betraying their trust.

Now, Boris has a decision and it will not be easy. Will he downplay the affairs and what it has costed? Will he act unaccountable, untrustworthy and dishonest? Is that all the that the PM has? It is seemingly so at this point.

Prime Minister Johnson your role in government isn’t made for you to get girls. The PM should come clean. He got a history of cheating and mischief at home. When he does this to his loved ones, what will he be capable of doing in office? If he can easily lie and play them… what will he do to everyone else?

That is what the general public should think off. That is what the Conservative Party should consider too. Is that the sort ideal they have of leadership?

A lying conniving cheat and an adulterer, who is supposed to be head of state? Is that who they are and is that values of the Tories?

I don’t have the answers, but if the Tories are saying others should comply in Public Service to the Nolan Principals, shouldn’t the PM be the first in line? Peace.

Opinion: Have Kembo Mohandi violated article 106(2b)?

Are you alright now?… Are you alright now? Can you give me a fuck now?” – Vice President Kembo Mohandi

One of the Vice-Presidents of Zimbabwe Kembo Mohandi have gotten into a pickle. The old man of 71 years is clearly vigorous. As the leaks of phone calls with his “lovers” been released to the public. Surely, the VP didn’t wanted this out in the public. Someone dropped this to hurt him and maybe get someone else promoted or appointed in his place. Since this is making the old man looking “sexists” and “questionable”. The manner, which he spoke to the ladies in question is also showing his true character.

That he has affairs and sexual relations with people is usually personal business. However, when you are an VP there is other standards. Also, the manner, which these leaks have been released shows how he interacts with his “lady-friends”. As these are also married ladies as well. This shows that he doesn’t care or thinks because of his position that he got the magical stick. Since, the young ladies will throw themselves at him and he can enjoy the spoils. This seems like the thing of the VP.

Not that I am shocked that someone like the VP would use his position to get ladies. That is what men like he does. He get the perks of the office. VP Mohandi is not the first or the last. However, the way he spoke and did it wasn’t all that good.

That is why I’m just quoting the Constitution to prove what the VP has possibly violated it.

Article 106 (2b) states:

106 Conduct of Vice-Presidents, Ministers and Deputy Ministers

(2)Vice-Presidents, Ministers and Deputy Ministers may not, during their tenure of office—

(b) act in any way that is inconsistent with their office, or expose themselves to any situation involving the risk of a conflict between their official responsibilities and private interests” (Constitution of 2013).

The VP should answer to this article, as it states a vital point for his office. That he shouldn’t have conflict between his official responsibilities and his private interests. We can surely question of making love at the office is a breach of his official responsibilities, as that is all his private interests. His privates are all active, while his using the public office to activate that. This is therefore not only a moral question. As he should answer and atone for his sins where he see fit. Since these woman are reported to be married already. So, this is infidelity, but that both has answer for on their own.

However, the cheating spouse is one issue on its own and if the VP is a cheating hubby himself. That is moral question, which is bad in itself. Nevertheless, the usage of the office and his position as a VP get laid is more worrying. That his searching for the honeypot and the fountain of youth. If not his searching to get his loads off. No matter what he does. He maybe should have been more careful and not as riled off.

Yes, people are busting his balls right now, but that is justified. The old man is a sexist and using his office to solicit sex. That says it all really. It should have consequences for him. Not just bust his balls. Peace.

Zimbabwe Devine Destiny (ZDD): VP Kembo Mohadi escapdes Disgraces the Nation (19.02.2021)

Opinion: Papa Don is off the hook

The Second Impeachment trial in the Senate is now over after the final vote yesterday. As anticipated, the party of “rule of law” wouldn’t care about the constitution or accountability. The Republican Party vindicated their “dear leader” and “his majesty” Donald J. “Papa Don” Trump. The Republican senators saved his impeachment and acquitted him.

The Republican Senators is allowing Papa Don to incite violence and send a violent mob on the chambers of the Capitol. Where they had planned to go after the Speaker of the House, Vice-President and others to settle the score. To stop the certification of the election and overturn the election. They are all accepting that someone can order a coup d’etat and it’s cool. This is the message they are sending.

The party of “rule of law” is fine with deadly attacks. The party of “rule of law” is okay with sponsoring, helping and promoting domestic terrorism. As police officers died, injured and other civilians died. The Republican is fine that someone in power is not sending in the National Guards in time to stop and secure the lawmakers in the Capitol. That is what they said with letting Papa Don off the hook.

Yes a few Republican Senators voted for it, but not enough to get him “convicted”. That is why Trump won again. The people who did storm the Capitol. The ones who are in custody of the law will pay much more consequences for it. Then the person who actually got them there. The one who spoke, planned and made the event happen on the 6th January 2021. That says a lot of the fall of grace for the United States.

The United States Senators and especially the Republican Senators are okay with treasonous acts against the Republic. The Republican Senators is fine with people conspiring to violently overturn and take over an elected government. Because, that was the initial drive and the reasoning behind what occurred. It is not like this should be forgotten.

Papa Don have clearly broken the ideals and moral backbone of the US. They have no values anymore for so many. They rather be loyal to one man and his political aspirations. Then be following the Constitutions and the current laws. They rather risk destroying what the founders made sacred, then touching their leader. That is what they did yesterday. This is the message the Republican party is telling the world.

The Republican Party rather be loyal and supporting Papa Don, then vote to convict the man that could have ensured their last breath. Because, many of the Senators and Representatives was just minutes or even less away from being caught by the mob on the 6th January 2021. They had prepared a noose outside for possible hanging of certain individuals. Therefore, the Senators who acquitted Papa Don is clearly fine with that. They are positive to the idea of mob justice towards the ones who defies their leader.

If they really was against it and saw this an dangerous affair. They would have addressed it. These folks would have made the leader behind it and the others accountable. Especially, the same party that went after Benghazi and impeached someone over a blow-job. However, domestic terrorism and incite violence is okay when it’s one of their own doing it. Especially, if the one doing it has the party by the balls and he can swing voters their way. That is what is at stake here.

Papa Don owns the Republican Party. They are all his sycophants and “Yes-Men” will serve him by any means necessary. It doesn’t matter the cost or possible breaches of law it seems. As long as they have him behind them, everything goes. Papa Don is the personification of the Republican Party now. They are not willing to break with him or make him accountable for his actions. Only his enemies or opposition are supposed to answer for anything. That is what the world is learning. This is why Papa Don would be a perfect tin-pot dictator, but he never got the legality to become that. Though, the Republican Party would have helped him on the way, if they could.

Now that his golfing in Mar-A-Lago in Florida. His a private citizen answering other cases, which is filed in the courts. Still, we don’t know if there will sentencing or even charges on him directly. As there are investigations into his companies and transactions, his taxes and whatnot else that he has done.

Papa Don have been allowed to do whatever he wanted and still it seems that nothing can touch him. However, at one point, something got to give, but we now know its official the the GOP and the Republican Party is his. The Republican Party is his subjects and they are serving him. Nothing matters to them. Only being loyal to one man. Who knew that the party would become such a disgraceful gang of people. Nevertheless, that what power does and greed corrupts people. This is really evident. Peace.

Opinion: Kyambadde knows the truth [but claims the youth doesn’t understand]

Some would tell me that they like me, but they don’t understand the party I am attached to. People are blaming the party because of our over stay. Even with the services delivered, the youth think that they are not prioritised” Amelia Kyambadde (19.01.2021)

The now former Permanent Principal Secretary to President and Minister Amelia Kyambadde has spoken the truth. That is actually not new. Now and then she has blasted the truth in the media and gotten the real in interview. This time is now different.

Even though Kyambadde is part of the Museveni clan. She has all the connections and enjoys the perks of that. Some things we do know is that she will not suffer as long as Museveni is in power. Because, as long as he is in power. She will have access and ability to enjoy the spoils of the Presidency. 

This week again she has spoken the truth. Not that its shocking or anything. It isn’t even that radical or brutal. Just a mere reflection of what is happening and the consequences of their actions. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) have been there and in-power too long. President Museveni have overstayed in office. That is just a mere fact and no reason to run away from it now.

The youth doesn’t feel the services is delivered. When they don’t have work, unemployed and living in a gig economy. In a Republic where one class eats all and the others cannot afford breadcrumbs. That is the sad reality of what the NRM has delivered. Not like Kyambadde was sincere about that part. There is to many lacking factors and options for the youth and citizens in general. Its a deprived state and depleted one. Which the next unlucky loser have to entangle and resolve.

Kyambadde is right the NRM isn’t a party to understand. Since it is a party who only revolves around one person and his whims. His micro-managing and erratic behaviour isn’t making it easier to understand either. However, the final end-game is in his hands and controlled by him. That is just the NRM way at this point of time.

The NRM haven’t cared or invested in the ones she points at. The only interest is in overstaying and securing power. Not to serve or deliver anything anymore. That is why the President could just re-hash old ideas and pledges, as he knows very well … that he didn’t deliver or have the ability to make it happen in the previous term or in the last decade. That is just who he is and the likes of Kyambadde have to act oblivious to the fact.

That is why I will not blindly say she “right” and saying the “right” thing. No, she knows perfectly well the game and how its rigged. Amelia knows how things are working and been in the chambers for so long. That she knows how things get corrupted, stolen and stopped. Kyambadde called out the GAVI funds back-in-the-day and surely seen other things happening too.

Still, she has been part of it and earned her coins. A loyal cadre and a yellow compatriot. That is why I cannot praise her insight. Unless, she wanted to reveal some underlying issues and be a whistle-blower. Alas, she is just stating the obvious, but forging a narrative that the youth doesn’t understand.

However, they do understand and see the game of the NRM. That is why they are voting for the opposition and other parties. In hope that they actually do something. That they are doing the things the NRM isn’t doing. So, that they can have hope for a better tomorrow. Peace.

National Unity Platform (NUP): Press Release to the World from Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentumu Robert (17.01.2021)

Journalists shot as they we’re following Bobi Wine’s Convoy in Masaka

Today as Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine was leaving Masaka district after visiting a church ahead of campaigning in Lwengo district. The authorities and the police ambushed the National Unity Platform (NUP) convoy passing the area. They used live bullets on unarmed civilians.

These bullets apparently hit journalist Saif-llah Ashraf Kasirye, a Radio One journalist and an online Ghetto TV in his head. He got taken to the Masaka hospital for treatment. Others who was also hit and injured by the police was the journalist Ali Mviule and Daniel Lutayaa (NBS TV).

This actions is police brutality and journalism isn’t a crime. These folks and citizens are only covering the campaign of Bobi Wine. They are not criminals and haven’t done a crime. These acts are devious and injustice.

Innocent civilians gunned down for doing their job by the security that is supposed to keep them safe. What the police are doing versus what they are supposed to do.

These actions shouldn’t happen, but they are reoccurring and there is no consequences. The only thing happening for this trigger-happy police officers and commanders. Is that they get moved and stationed elsewhere. There is no consequences if there is fatalities or brutality served the general public.

Today has been bloody and unnecessary so. Three journalists doing their job got injured while working. Because some local officer wanted to show his hubris. That isn’t a good sign and the people pulling the trigger will not answer to any courts or any law. While Bobi Wine and his folks has to thread the waters carefully. Since he can answer the same Police Force anytime. Peace.
