Opinion: Tired of NRM apologists defending the record of President Museveni!

It is depressing, it is sad and it tormenting to listen and read the defenses of National Resistance Movement. The defense of the 31 years of rule, the rule of the for life President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his cronies. The cronies and their 10th Parliament, the By-Elections that are rigged in favor of the NRM Regime. The government of Uganda is totally controlled by the one in-charge, the President and kingpin.

The Parliament are following orders and making amends to seem to be different. Therefore, the results of elections are more to just show overpower, but not to have real elections. As the NRM sends buses and pays of villages with small-fees and commodities. There aren’t anything fruitful or sincere by the regime. The ones who put dissidents in the Nalufenya prison. Where they will be beaten, tortured and get ill. As well, as in the overcrowded prison in Luzira. The organized silence of opposition, as their rallies are filled with tear-gas and police brutality. If not the ones who are feared by the NRM are put on treason charges and called terrorists.

President Museveni with his patronage, his bloated State House, the massive cabinet and the Presidential Advisors. There certainly enough ghosts, fake bills and misuse of state reserves to write books ten times thicker than the bible. We can know by the lost trillions of the Petroleum monies, as the “Presidential Handshake” is a drop in the ocean. As the UNRA and other agencies has misused the taxpayers monies. This happens with such ease and lacking finesse, but the agencies looking into graft and corruption is compromised, because the ones leading it are loyal Musevenist.

That the government and budgets are bloated. That the financial and economic state is in deep distress, as the state is suffering from lacking provisions and revenue. As well, as they are struggling with the stop of donor friendly relationships. People’s and Foreigners trust in the leadership of Museveni has been dwindling. President Museveni are also already prospecting the revenue of the oil and petroleum, even before it has surfaced. Therefore, the future will also be compromised by the deals done today.

The defenders of the NRM now, does not believe in real democracy, as they defending the rigging and militant Movement. A President who has no trouble with killing and destroying to stay in power. The ones defending him has no trouble to stand by a man who empties the treasury and state reserves with no hesitation. As well, as the men and woman who stays by the regime, are easily taking land and resources, they are eating of the plate and selling it back to the Ugandans. This with impunity and without any consideration of the ones who loses their chances.

It is a nation who has a government, not based on merit, but on loyalty. The loyalty to Museveni and his agenda. The agenda to work for him and his ideas. Not work to develop the nation, but develop the estate of Museveni. The idea of real Movement is ploy from the master himself. He just needs shadows to work for him and for envelopes. Not a real party who deliver policy or working for the future Republic. No the Movement is now a shell used pounce out the empty ideas of greed, nurture of the estates of Museveni and of the staging the power of the old-man with the hat!

President Museveni and his apologists knows all of this, they live by this and has faith that this is ideal and the dream. That someone comes with empty promises and lives by the fake party celebrating the 1986 coup. The coup that overruled the government and the old constitution, that President Museveni couldn’t pigeonhole. That has he done to his own and plans to do it again for his 8th Term.

The apologists can say he created safety, but he also created warfare and civil-war to get to power. Some called it a revolution, other calls it a takeover. But with time it wasn’t for the idea of a people’s government, but more a government and state built around the revolutionary, who didn’t really believe in the words he spoke.

The ones defending him, is defending a lie and that for the sake of eating. Not for the benefit of the Republic or the public. The struggling public is pawns, they are just needed props now and then for the Movement. As they praise their master, as they know if they get to close or too ambitious they are surely losing their place. Therefore, all of them are loyal cadres, elite and patrons who surely basks in the pasture of the President. But really, they should know it is on borrowed time. No-one knows how long the patronage and military can be serviced, how long they can all live on the charade and the misuse of power.

Certainly, the President knows this too, therefore, he uses all ways to make sure and get people on board. Even if that lets people starve, let them cheat on food reliefs and even use refugees as bailing-out card on the struggling economy. That is solely made of the patronage and grand-corruption orchestrated from the seat of the President at the Okello House. He can created all sorts of schemes and manufacture new ways of promoting better agriculture or better yields, but it is all ploys of generating more funds for his own. Not for the public to earn or get better output of the seeds and seedlings. If so, than the agricultural should be booming after 30 years in power.

However, the defense of this will be in the patronage and by the spokespersons appointed by the President. These ones will make a fuzz and say the Opposition never was a viable option and never had the leadership to overturn the Movement. The Movement has always been the only option, they say and use new ways of saying so. But that doesn’t make it true, as the rigging and the intimidation is used to forge this facade. The flawless untouched ballots doesn’t exists, there has been all sorts of play to get the will of the President.

President Museveni, even detain opposition, he uses safe-houses and some like Sam Mugumya are detained in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with no plan of getting him home. Him and others are lingering abroad as the political prisoner lingers in uncertainty. This is the legacy of the revolutionary, who became the draconian and the militarized government who uses all means to stay. He uses all methods on earth, Machiavellian and Orwellian blended in a Yellow Color with no fear of repression… no fear that the Movement can be touched, but when the moment appear. Than the Ugandans shouldn’t lose it, because they have already lost so much in the name of Museveni. Museveni has stolen the past and the present. His men has rewritten the history and tried to become the grand hero, and the generations from the rebellion is dwindling away. The young generation only knows the folklore and should beware, it is not all what it seems. The ghosts are not only in the budgets, but they are haunting the President from the past. They are the ones he stole to gain power and to silence the opposition. These souls will ask in the after-life, why he did what he did to them and also why he punished their grand-kids. Since they all lead the same faith. They all got to feel the pain, with no mercy from the leadership controlled by the President.

That is why there are no defending a man like Museveni. He has used all tricks, even was able to deceive the west for decades to pay for his decadence. Certainly, he must laugh about the dumb-white men and their agendas. His grin must be wide thinking of all the sorts of cars, airplanes and ranch expansions that are paid by the friends of direct-state aid. They have kept his roof and his ammunition, to oppress and to relief his patronage. Therefore, if someone is defending this man. Think of his track-record and all the souls he has left behind. Peace.

Opinion: These two ideas shouldn’t be thing in 2017: Goats for tuition fees and Jerrycan-Irrigation!

NRM in July 2016 in Kakinga in Western Uganda.

In the Republic of Uganda and Zimbabwe there are two issues that should not occur or need to happen, as the societies under Zimbabwean African National Union Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) and National Resistance Movement (NRM), that President Robert Mugabe and President Yoweri Museveni has been the Executives for decades.

These two republics has both their issues concerning these gentleman, though not the same. Still, the republics has some dire needs. You know so, when President Museveni has to spread this message in the year of 2017:

I continue to encourage farmers to use drip irrigation. Even as we wait for government to roll out mass irrigation, farmers can irrigate their crops with basic tools like bottles. No one should let seedlings go to waste on claims of drought yet we are surrounded by water” (Yoweri Museveni, 16.04.2017).

The Jerrycan and bottle irrigation mantra in the land of steady progress, you can wonder and pound about the agriculture reforms that was about to happen when the NRM came into power. Where the wealth creation and the cash crops we’re supposed to change the economic landscape. Still, since the Movement ceased power in 1986, the same President as back-then has to spread the message of a drip-drop irrigation system based on bottles and jerrycans. Instead of modern agriculture, because of how he misused the state reserves and the donated aid. Therefore, the lacking facilitation of agriculture. So it is sad to know that the President Museveni has to propagandize the jerrycan irrigation system, like it is a fantastic invention and something that would really be a paradigm shift.

Than you have in Zimbabwe, the county of the Lancaster House Agreement, the ZANU-PF elite and the Bond-Notes, with a massive movement behind the voices of opposition, as well as the financial troubles under President Mugabe. Who has turned the Southern African breadbasket unto a food-import heaven as his land-reforms has destroyed the agricultural production as well as the economic climate. Therefore this news shouldn’t be a thing of 2017!

Parents who cannot raise tuition fees for children can offer livestock in lieu of payment or do chores for learning institutions, a Cabinet minister has said. The Sunday Mail understands that several State-run primary schools in Glen View, Harare have already adopted the arrangement. Primary and Secondary Education Minister Dr Lazarus Dokora told this paper last week, “Our schools have to be flexible and ensure those who do not have money to pay fees can work. For example, if there is a builder in the community, he/she must be given that opportunity to work as a form of payment of tuition fees” (…) “On the issue of livestock, the community has to arrange a market where everyone participates; from the school authorities, local leadership and parents themselves to avoid parents being duped” (Gwete, 2017).

So in the proud republic of Zimbabwe the Cabinet Minister Dr. Lazarus Dokora, says parents who doesn’t have enough cash to pay tuition fees can now pay in livestock or goats. We know by now that the faith in the Bond-Notes is abysmal, still that the Republic has such little cash flow; that can take animals as payments. Shows the neglect of the state, the little money circulation and the financial vows right now. If the financial market and the currency we’re in a better condition, than such massive amount of parents wouldn’t have to trade their goats and livestock so their kids can go to school.

That under President Mugabe, the citizens have to use their livestock and goats as trading tools, or even as currency because of the lack of stable financial policies. This shows the draconian state and what sort of government that is in charge. When they are more concerned about their Mercedes Benz’s than the population!

That the Zimbabwean people and citizens of the Republic run by Zanu-PF should feel betrayed by the lack of governance and care of the taxpayers funds. The Zimbabwean people should be in sorrow as even as their state is insufficient, it now has a plan not to only eat their monies, but also take their animals. So that the future of Zimbabwe can learn how to read and write, even type and some hopefully understanding better what it means to be a Statesmen. A Statesmen that cares about its constituent and their struggles, not just eat of it and leave them to rot. That is what the Zanu-PF elite does right now.

What we have have seen with these two stories is clear lack of policies and wish to intervene in the struggles of the citizens. We can see two governments, that is Zanu-PF and NRM, who clearly are both out-of-time and out-of-pocket as they scrap their best ideas to salvage some hope. The hope is that some can be duped by the idea and support the so-called progress. That it is progressive to take goats as currency to pay for tuition and the other revolutionary idea of using bottles and jerrycans to irrigate the dirt. That President Museveni and President Mugabe is over-due is proof with this. The milk is thick and nasty. The milk is not drinkable and if so you will vomit. The reality is that these men doesn’t see or doesn’t want to see.

They are eating of the plate and sells their propaganda, the own mindset of lies and deception, and it has been said so many times that the old-men believes. Even if it isn’t so. The manufactured reality and the destruction of the society, is the reasons for these tales, many factors involved, but the Presidents has been there through the stages. They have seen it all and created policies that has changed to this level of underdevelopment. If they really did care, than the countries would have looked different. If they would have created parliaments for serving cadres for the people and not their own bellies like right now. That is why many of them think these sort of policies are acceptable and even profess to them. Therefore, the republic’s are living in a state they doesn’t deserve and the citizens are used as pawns. Peace.

31st Celebration of NRM Regime with a Yellow Jerrycan’s into the future!

NRM in July 2016 in Kakinga in Western Uganda.

NRM in July 2016 in Kakinga in Western Uganda.

The National Resistance Movement had their Celebration Party and unleashed their new ruling-party national newspaper. I thought that was the New Vision? Apparently, I am other we’re wrong on the Bukedde and New Vision ass-kissing mission during the three decades of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Well, there is so much to celebrate for the NRM!

They have yet another election that rigged and had a new number of sole candidates without any competitions. This is a real victory like stealing candy from a little kid. The NRM can be so celebratory as they are having a too small Parliament, having to few cars for their MPs, added more debt every year into the state coffers with added interest rates on these loans. Together with the waiting of petroleum monies that seems more and more likely to happen closer to 2020 than ever.

NRM can celebrate that they have had a bunch of Vice Presidents, but none has outlasted the long-serving rebel on the throne, that has installed the Jerrycan irrigations as the State cannot afford proper relief or modern irrigation to the their farmers. The cash crops are also struggling as well as staple-food, even the cattle is dying in the cattle-corridor. The NRM has certainly built a perfect nation.

The Uganda Airways, Uganda Telecom, Uganda Broadcasting Company and others  are either gone, near depleted or living on their last legs. UTL the phone company is dead-broke and on life-support. UBC is the only State financed Television Company that couldn’t afford to get licence to send the African Cup of Nations from Gabon this AFCOM2017. NRM has so much to celebrate.

Certainly the lucky guests who got a Presidential Handshake can be all smiles and grin, as the illegitimate government are postponing and struggling with infrastructure projects, as they are all embezzlement projects for the UNRA to trick monies out of the state. The expenses or building roads have sky-rocketed, the Mukono – Katosi Road Project and Kampala – Entebbe Expressway is examples of the open-air bazar of looting under the NRM.

We can question the ambition of the NRM, as they have included all sorts of missions and promises. Most of them shelved out every election cycle, but then forgotten when the NRM MPs and President has entered the Parliament Avenue. The certainty of Steady Progress isn’t there, except for puppy talk of the loyal Musevenists.

nrm-m7-july-2016

This can be said as National Medicak Stores (NMS) are often empty of needed medicines or issuing issues with the sale of copy medicines that we’re not supposed to be on the market. The Hospitals lacking medicines, enough trained personnel, lacking payment structures and salaries as the nurses and teachers even have cash-crops or other jobs to survive. The lacking structure and care for the Health Care is evident as the Nobel men and honourable are travelling abroad for their curing of sickness, as even some of the Generals are suddenly dying as they are travelling to their Asian allies.

We can question if the NRM should celebrate that Nakasero Hospital is now seen as the National Referral Hospital instead of the historic hospital, the Kings Hospital Mulago, the Mulago Referral Hospital Complex that is even missing a well-working cancer machine. The only one that was last bought in 1990s and early in the reign of the NRM! The NRM forgot their mission and let it dwindle like so many other institutions; there are many hospitals without working X-Ray machines and other needed equipment to help the sick patience. This is happening on the daily. The responsibility of this fate is their maladministration and it’s all in the hands of the NRM.

Certainly they can take their Jerry-Cans into the future, with the yellow t-shirts and yellow flags. Still forgetting their mission and their purpose, they have forgotten why they exists! Since they are now only bowing their knees for the Mzee instead of workingfor the citizens. Right now the liberation was only liberating Museveni, but letting everybody else being under his mercy. That isn’t freedom, liberty or justice. That is a dictatorship and Museveni is dictating everything and behind all acts. Just like the biggest scam of 2017, the Presidential Handshake. That proves how little NRM Regime has to really celebrate. Peace.

Uganda Law Society Statement on 10th August Attack on the Courts and Members of the Legal Profession (11.08.2016)

Opinion: Museveni and NRM think nowadays that the Ugandans are stupid!

Museveni Kyankwanzi 01.08.2016

In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.”

― Napoléon Bonaparte

I might be first to say, but the acts of the Government and the details of conspiracy from the Ugandan Government. They must think that their citizens are stupid or at least fools for accepting their acts of the Executive and his party. The NRM cronies in their minds are paying to save businesses connected with brother of the Executive. Imagine, this being Museveni’s brother Gen. Salim Selah and other contributors, who happen to donate to the expensive campaign and the NRM House that never see the light of day. While claiming this is for saving businesses connected with the now civil-war actions of South Sudan, there might be businesses from Uganda or Ugandan owned in the South Sudanese country, but the list of businesses that we’re released online. None of them had connected businesses in Juba or directly exporting to South Sudan. So Museveni, thinks the Ugandans are stupid or acts like they are.  

This together with the UBC land that got sold to Burahya County MP Margaret Muhanga for 10 billion shillings, she happens to sell enough cows and goats to get the money for the 23 acres land. As the government controlled broadcaster could accept the monies. The idea of gathering enough cattle and goats are flabbergasting, and she claimed people we’re laughing at her for that claim. That is not so strange even the Executive doesn’t have enough cattle to fetch 10 billion shillings for a giant property. The good news is that today reported from Parliament that she has do deliver the deed back to Uganda Broadcasting Company by Friday. Though wonder if the government would have pushed for the same if the land was sold to foreign investor in the name of Aga Khan or other ones buying hunting ground in Amuru?

The Executive, Museveni thinks Ugandans are stupid and fools, as he thinks they can swallow the shallow excuse to extend his power for life. “A statement from State House Entebbe said the president received the proposal seeking the amendment of Article 102(b) to remove the age limitation from a group from the ruling NRM led by Kyankwanzi woman MP Ann-Maria Nankabirwa. “President Yoweri Museveni has received a resolution from the Kyankwanzi National Resistance Movement (NRM) leaders calling for the amendment of the Constitution by Parliament to lift presidential age limit from the current 75 years to none,” the statement reads in part. In March this year, the proposal to do away with the age cap for those contesting for the presidency is said to have come under discussion during a retreat of newly elected members of the NRM at the Kyankwanzi Leadership Training Institute. However, party officials denied it” (Mpagi, 2016). He the Executive thinks Ugandans are stupid and didn’t see this coming from the man who already scrapped the term limits made in the newly created 1995 Constitution. Therefore that he wished to amend the constitution and laws again to fit his paradigm wouldn’t be altering with the perception and status quo under his leadership. Museveni has always made laws fitting his actions and his perspective of leading. As he has blamed everybody else and claimed there we’re other responsible than him or his political elite. That the Kyankwanzi are trying to put an amendment to the law to fit his now rule-for-life alternative; the Ugandan people must have seen this coming from the man that has ruled with iron and guns since 1986. Therefore the only ones not believing he wouldn’t retract or change the laws to his benefit hasn’t followed the class of Museveni.

So, what do you think? Do you think that Museveni thinks Ugandans are stupid and gullible to believe anything his PR Team and State House gives to the Media; as the placing of changing the laws happens to happen right after the election and when their been speculation about his real age. Do you think he will get away with it as he has the majority rule of Parliament and they will listen to his reasoning as he dolce out monies so they will vote in favour of his changes of laws as they did in the 9th Parliament and before that as well! Peace.

No Remedy Mentioned (NRM) is continuing to run, while they block the FDC with the Calvary and in the Courts!

Lukwago 02.06.2016

“Am short of words to express my disillusionment with this level of impunity and bastardisation of the country” – Erias Lukwago

There have been a few nights and few days with sorrow for the Forum for Democratic Change and their leadership, that is far from over, as long as President Museveni and National Resistance Movement exist. So with this in mind, there are still Courtship for FDC MPs, FDC Leaders and Activist that are involved in the Defiance Campaign of the 2015-2016.

Just as the IGP Kale Kayihura written a Motion and Affidavit on the 30th May 2016, as they will continue with the “Interim Ex Parte Orders in AG V. Besigye (Constitutional Petition No. 13 of 2016)”. This happens after the suspended orders went out on the 1st June, as they got this served yesterday at the FDC Headquarter on the 1st June 2016. So with that in mind, the Uganda Police Force together with Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma, the man who was officiating or swearing-in President Museveni on the 12th of May. In the midst of the period that the Political Party of FDC was sieged and even the FDC HQ was at one point a crime scene by the Police Force.

While Dr. Kizza Besigye who is still in Luzira, was supposed to be tried first day on his “treason charge” against the Republic of Uganda, to be correct dishonoring President Museveni. Since he is such a problem for the state of affairs, he is National Security threat as he can weakens all transport in Kampala, not in the same way as the jams recent days with Turkey VIP Erdogan and South Korean President Park Guen-Hye, as the central Kampala and roads to Entebbe International Airports was closed. The Same Police Force could not also as they we’re on standby for the President and his guest, be able to see the KCCA Councilors and Lord Mayor Lukwago, as another excuse of the matter.

Well, today the Police and Judiciary continues with the struggle against Opposition, as the incumbent Mayor Lukwago had to show up at Makindye Magistrate Court, where 7 persons from FDC was represented to answer to the Interim Order of Stephen Kavuma, but Dr. Kizza Besigye for the second day in row couldn’t be produced to Court.  The action of today’s court was the actual extension of the ban of “Defiance Campaign”. Because Lukwago and Besigye at one-point was charged with “Illegal Assembly” at Nsambya Sharing Hall in 2015; a trial that happen today without one of the main suspects as he is supposed to answer and the continuation of the suspension order of the “Defiance Campaign”.

Museveni 31.05.2016

This happens in the same space as the President Museveni in his speech in Parliament, at the State of the Nation Address, is saying this:

“The only pollution to this glorious and massive Liberation Movement has been the mistake of the careerists introducing the use of money in electioneering.  We shall also struggle against that.  Therefore, democracy is one area where we do not need aid because that is what we fought for here and in the rest of Africa for many decades”.

Ingrid Turinawe 01.06.2016

This happen while certain close in the leadership of FDC Doreen Nyanjura and Ingrid Turinawe was arrested around the Nakawa Court yesterday. While the level of tortured FDC leaders and youths have also been showed to the world in the recent months. As there was at one point a dozen FDC Youth detained in a Container on the Outside of the Rukungiri Police Station, they we’re charged with “Terrorism”. As their leaders was also detained and not charged for days in this May 2016. Hon. Moses Byamugyisha, was working for their freedom for days upon days. As the Police even when Rukungiri Court Order their withdrawal of justice, they still lingered in the Container there.

Now with this in mind, there are still charges on Dr. Kizza Besigye served in Kabale Magistrate Court together with Erias Lukwago, the same is surely also in Kasangati Magistrate Court, where he has served charges against the State for their unlawful house-arrest of Besigye himself, days upon days without charges in February and March in 2016, when they we’re besieging his home in Kasangati in 40 Days straight. Something that IGP Kale Kayihura should answer for!

Besigye Detained

There are reported that Besigye will be produced at the Constitutional Court as they will answer to affidavit of IGP Kayihura as he had intelligence of FDC Supporters was supposed to make problems around Nakawa Court, yesterday, apparently. There are also reports that the Police have sealed of Constitutional Court, as he is set to come there from the Fairway Hotel Junction down to Mulago-Wandegeya routes are closed as the Black Van with Besigye supposed to pass. So that the Judge presiding, surely Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma will continue the “Interim Order” with the passage of National Security as the DPP Mike Chibita couldn’t produce him yesterday as the passage would counter the news of Turkish President and President Museveni smiling on the front-pages on New Vision today. It would look foolish towards the new donors and allies from Turkey. Therefore they had to wait until today when both Presidents had left the Central Business District of Kampala and could siege the roads for the return of Besigye  to the Constitutional Court, where he last time we’re in late April 2016.

What I expect is that it will be continued as he is now by the Authorities and Legal forces seen as a “National Security” issue and a man who creates havoc and problems. Even when that is not true or proven; as much as the President wants to silence the FDC and hope that the population soon forgets the General Election of 2016 and the shameful rigging of Presidential Election 2016. That with the Army deployment and the continued stronghold of Police, as they continue to detain and harass the opposition, therefore the Democratic Party and Uganda People’s Congress is so silent, except that Hon. Jimmy Akena had to take his last shot at Dr. Olara A. Otunnu and blame him for the election. Not for his maladministration and agreement with NRM led to people despising the UPC, as they are now a branch of the NRM-O.

Fred Ruhindi TV

The Attorney General of Uganda Fred Ruhindi is issuing the extension of the Interim Order today because of this:

“The Attorney General wants court to declare both Besigye and FDC’S defiance activities as unlawful since they are not in conformity with the prescribed processes of challenging a presidential election. In the affidavit supporting the Attorney General’s interim order application, the Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura says unless court stops FDC’s activities, the country will go back to political unrest and insecurity” (The Street Lawyer UCU, 02.06.2016).

So with this in mind, we know the tale will go, it is not all of sudden that the NRM Regime going to work against itself or going to contradict itself, more than President Museveni does with his speeches and development agenda, as that is the same in 1980s, he just don’t know that himself. The Constitutional Court will today continue to ban the Forum for Democratic Change and their Defiance Campaign as the “National Security” will come first. Because that “National Security” is meaning the continuation of the rigged coup d’état from President Museveni and his NRM Elite have done on the 20th February 2016. So the Police Force and their tear-gas brigade fear the people who supported Besigye and the true state of electoral violence created under their reign and their initial Police brutality against civilians. Therefore the Attorney General and Inspector General of Police wants to make sure he is silent behind bars and that his party is muffled; because if so they can continue prosecuting the leaders and head-activist of the FDC party without interference of the population. That is securing the NRM elite and Ruling Party for continuing with some sort of business as usual.

There is now reports that AG Fred Ruhindi: “Attorney General withdraws application for an interim order (incl. an extension) against defiance” (The Observer, 02.06.2016).  So the hardwork and paperwork delivered together with IGP Kayihura will not be worked on.

FDC Lawyer 02.06.2016

Reasons for why they did so: 

“According to the FDC legal adviser and lawyer Rwakafuzi Radsrus,attorney general sought it important to withdraw the case on grounds that they government could not hold the million people who could invade the court and that even Dr. Kizza Besigye as the accused had written to appear in person without being represented by lawyers. Before at around 02:45 Beisgye’s Ernest Kalibala brought a letter signed by the accused (Besigye) himself requesting for his personal presence as by law for the accused to be available in court on such charges. In a letter signed by the Director Civil Litigation Denis Bireije quotes that under section 2 (2) of the court of appeal rules with orders for the government cost and a copy has been sent to FDC and Besigye Kizza. Rwakafuzi further says that the main application of attorney general seeking for the constitutional court to interpret the laws that ban defiance still stands but that it is useless since there has never been any where the government petitions the constitutional court against its citizens on constitutional interpretations” (Mukose Arnold Anthony, 02.06.2016).

Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago statement on today’s affair:

“Today midmorning, Hon. Mp Bakireke Nambooze, Kasibante Moses, Ssemujju Nganda and I visited Dr. Beside at Luzira Maximum Security Prison. We compared notes on the bizarre political developments in the country, including the current legal gymnastics in courts of law. I was personally shocked to learn that the prison authorities were never issued with a production warrant, requiring them to produce him before the Constitutional Court this afternoon, to respond to the AG’S application seeking to extend the ban on the defiance campaign. Besides, I think it is abuse of court process for the State to seek for injunctive orders against a citizen languishing in prison. Little wonder that they opted to withdraw all such applications. on a positive note, our legal team is working around the clock to ensure that Dr. Besigye regains his freedom. Aluta continua” (Lukwago, 02.06.2016).

Still there are enough cases in courts and acts from the Police, even if they are not officially banning “Defiance” they are still monitoring and detaining FDC leaders and activists. While also silencing the Opposition.  Even with the Defiance Campaign partly legal, it is still court cases and charges awaiting, not only Besigye, but many of the other close leadership of the FDC and the Youth Leaders in the Country.

There are nothing set in the stones that they will act differently, but they will follow orders from up-high and from their President, the man that feeds them and continue to inflict electoral and violations against multi-party democracy to protect their master. That is the only thing they know and they are bending their knees to supply the President with orders and tear-gas to assure that they are silencing the people, who are supposed to be sensitized for his ruling and his vision, and nobody else. That is the KEY to the RESISTANCE of Ugandan politics, to be unison agreement with Mzee Museveni and nobody else. Therefore people like Besigye, Lukwago and other have to be silent or not be questioning Museveni, because Museveni is always right and acting correctly. Even if his speech yesterday proves that even with 30 years in Power and Rule, he has the same problems in the Republic of Uganda, as when he took power. Peace.

Lukwago 04.05.2016

It’s a great pleasure that am finally out of those dingy, filthy and mosquito infested police dungeons in Naggalama, where I spent a long night with my brother, Pastor Ngabo and others. Am ready to stand trial on the vexatious charges of disobeying Justice Kavuma’s Interim order, which have been preferred against us before Makindye Magistrate’s court this evening and this will only serve to rekindle our spirit and resolve to fight for the restoration of Rule of Law and constitutionalism in our country. Am extremely grateful for your prayers and support.
