President Museveni sanctions now all information on emergencies from the State House!

If you ever needed proof that the departments, ministries and institutions don’t have values in Uganda, than you need the newest revelation. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni of the National Resistance Movement (NRM), who has run the nation for over three decades. This is proven with the Presidential Handshakes, the growing amounts of MP’s, Ministers and of newly created districts and sub-counties. That sort of government both state-wise and locally has grown out of proportions, this to make it possible to have enough cronies close by and hire them. The government has been built around President Museveni, still he has to control it even more. Take a look!

President Museveni has ordered ministries to stop declaring state of emergencies without his prior approval of their messages to the public. He accused government officials of using loose words which have ended up scaring away potential investors and tourists. President Museveni voiced his concerns in a letter he wrote to the Vice President and copied to all permanent secretaries of all ministries on January 20, this year” (Ahimbisibwe, 2017).

So the controlling behavior of President Museveni, now is to another level since he cannot even trust that the message spread by his ministers are sound enough. He is now controlling the releases of information and vouch for the ones spread from the NRM. The Government is so controlled by him, that it all has to pass by him. Because his rubber-stamp has now to be on the messages.

That the President needs clearance and cannot trust in his ministers, not the agencies or state institutions, proves the lack of transparency, as even the messages has to pass by him before the public gets to know. If it is first in emergencies, than it will on the Presidents desk and he will rewrite it, so that it fits his understanding of it. So if it needs to be addressed as enclave, a colonial relic or even if it is climate change, the President has to speak his peace.

That the Police Force, the Army or any of the ministers can address the matters first in public, to regain trust or even try to amend in the emergency that arrived. That the President shouldn’t have the capacity to control each and every single message the government spreads out. Surely, the President cannot have capacity to follow Hon. Frank Tumbewaze or Uganda Media Centre Chairman Ofwono Opondo’s remarks on the matters. As much as the President cannot have the time or the ability to understand the different events that occur in the Republic.

This here proves that President Museveni only trust himself and no-one else, all his vision has to be spread and people have to believe him. President Museveni wants to control it all and not give way, it is all him and his behavior. Not like Museveni wants to trust anyone. They are only around for Presidential Handshake’s and Brown Envelopes, that is because they follow his system. They know if they stay around and needs it, he will help them out and also create needed jobs for the closest associates.

President Museveni proves with this what we have known for long, that the institutions and the ministries is shell-organizations for the supposed operations of the state. Museveni has to be informed and engaged before actions happens. If it doesn’t happen that way, it is the wrong way and his feels betrayed by his own. Therefore, the ones that falls stopped informing and being independent of their master. Which is Museveni, who feels he is more important than the institutions. Museveni thinks he is the pillar of the State and the key to all the works of the State.

That is why the newest order of controlling information and the flow of information to the public, the enforcement of this proves the systematic control that he has from the Okello House. This proves how belittling the state is and how important the President thinks of himself. The way the State is now his playground and no-one else can play like he do. Peace.

As President Museveni have the Inauguration for his 7th Term tomorrow; he has done this: “Ugandan Citizens are living in a situation where the injustice and incarceration of democracy is happing as we speak”; So I don’t care who shows up at Kololo tomorrow!

Kampala 11.05.2016 Military

Let me clear I don’t care who is showing up for the event and the Inauguration of President Museveni for his 7th Term as the Executive and Head of State in the Republic of Uganda. This event is not something I see as significant or worthy of taking my precious time or mind.

As the breach of ordinary justice to the citizens as the Opposition is the epitome of regime for the moment. If it was a legitimate regime and authorities had a mutual understanding and cheer between each other. Just as seen earlier in the day when Dr. Kizza Besigye drove into Central Kampala, until the Police and Army decided to disperse the people with tear-gas, beatings and other violence to shut the cheering crowds down.

Kampala 11.05.2016

The injustice from the Government of Uganda to make tomorrow look perfect is into the insane, with the heavy deployment of Anti-Riot Police, Army Personnel and other security arrangements. Could think it was occupation of the capital city, not an inauguration of the newly elected President. Just as recently the Army had to fly a few Russian Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets to intimidate, and they flew low over the city.

The Army and the Police is the vital ingredient in the President Museveni dogma of leadership. He only knows violence and aggression, not really dialogue or accords. That is why the Nairobi Talks of 1980s faltered and we’re a farce of an extension towards goodwill between then friends and foes. Something that has failed, as much as the Inter-Burundian Dialogue, because President Nkurunziza want to do the same as President Museveni, he wants all power in his hands and take away the ones the opposition have or want to have. And with that admission there can’t be discussion or relief of power towards a unity of some kind.

Airtel 11.05.2016

But, let me clear way, as the Uganda and the Republic of Uganda is making way for yet another Inauguration Ceremony. In the time before the VPN business is the high-rising one as the Uganda Communication Commission is silencing the Social Media Platform, while the Army and Police silence the Opposition and detain the ones who might create fuzz in the country. President Museveni wants it done in cheer and joy with silence from the men who are not in line. Therefore have the Forum for Democratic Change been illegal and the Police Force have gone after them like they are serious killers and terrorist, even charging them with treason and terrorism charges. I am not kidding fellow activists in Rukungiri got charged with Terrorism! Fellow FDC staff that used the printer at Najjankumbi are charged with treason. This is happening during the last few days.

Jim Muhwezi Press Conference 05052016

So the Social Media Ban is the last piece of destruction of freedom, liberty and so on. As Ministry for Information and National Guidance Rtd. Maj. Hon. Jim Muhwezi and Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura have said that all coverage of “Defiance” and the Forum for Democratic Change is illegal and the media houses who does so can get their broadcaster or licence revoked. So the Freedom of speech is already in a thin thread as the Media are to follow the order of the President Museveni and write about the Health Care and other issues, not write about the Crack-Down on the Opposition.

The same happen on Election Day as youth connected to the FDC was even then arrested together with the leadership. Dr. Kizza Besigye have close to 50 days in house-arrest in 2016 alone, and then we don’t count the amount of times he has spent his lunch at Kiira Road Police Post, Nagalama Police Station, Kasangati Police Station or any other Police Station that the Police Officer have detained him at. Together with close leadership of the FDC who has nearly all of them at one point been behind bars or waited for hours while the Police have gone to pick-up more activist that are connected with the Party.

Kasangati 09.05.2016

The freedom of expression, the freedom of movement, the liberty to decide and to control the people, while the hospital are depleting and empty of medicines, if they have they will be sold like the Yellow Fever Vaccine in Kampala, that we’re supported to be given for free. Still this is typical levels of ignorance from the government that doesn’t deliver the needed treatment and the famous Carol, is put her treatment on hold even when she has been able to get needed cash for treatment abroad. The other is the schools where even President Museveni with pledges of free schoolbooks and geometry sets to Primary School students. Some promises and pledges that have already been given up as the government doesn’t have funds for that; as the State House coffers where empty and needed new fiscal funds after the campaigns. Something the Ugandans know and the monies went to the Buses, Bribes and T-shirts. Not to needed pledges or ordinary transparent government procedures and procurement, but that is not important under NRM as the word of President Museveni is the ones that matter.

So the Army deployment today, the Police Force that are on every corner, that the Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) that rides on the street while the M23 and other security organizations have stifled and silenced the population who was cheering for Besigye when he passed the central parts of Kampala. This is the ordinary as the deployment is done to make the perfect scenario as the citizens are not for the President and he has overstayed his time. The wish for change is there.

Vincent Kaggwa 2107Pic1

The fear and the weapons are the only thing he has, he can afford to pay a NRM Elite and get them in line as the army and Police arrest even their own and former close network of the NRM. This is say because Vincent Kaggwa of NRM Poor Youth has been arrested today.

No matter what words President Museveni and his NRM Elite uses tomorrow and in the future, the actions against their own citizens, the actions during this General Election 2016 and the general thieving of government funds has gone too far. It is time for change and new leadership. Because using the Army and Police force, clearing the Central Kampala, rewriting the history and silencing media and own citizens is not a genuine peace.

Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

The PEACE created now is with intimidation and why certain shops are closed. Why the emptiness is the words. Why the waste of air-time and the waste of VPN. The Defiance and disobedience of the population comes because they feel violated and taken for granted. They feel that the government doesn’t represent them and at this point it doesn’t. The Members of Parliament and the selected men of National Resistance Movement represent Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, not the Republic of Uganda. That is an initial fact while the NRM regime lives in a stolen fiction, a novel of inaccuracies of nonsense.

The silence of Opposition is because they are detained, their organizations are deemed illegal and the men and woman who organize peaceful political framework are terrorised while the National Resistance Movement is proclaiming themselves in the shades of fellow mates who does not care of their will of their people and what the event of tomorrow represent. Tomorrow’s inauguration does not represent democracy or free and fair election. Tomorrow represent the stolen affair that the guests are validating for different reasons and for the friendship to Museveni, not to the Ugandan People. Some of these men and woman who are attending are doing the same to their own like President Mugabe.

VPN 18.02.2016 P2

The violations and the injustice, the impunity and the little care for general freedoms are just manifested in the Social Media Ban. The most important violations are the banning of “Defiance” and the crackdown on Forum for Democratic Change is GIANT stain on the ruling regime and their master. The Master who will in-general swear-in himself with selected men around him and with a crowd either paid or voter tourism to his dear Kololo. The nation and all institutions are infested with his dictations and the controls are in his hands for now.

President Museveni was once a “New Breed” of leader, now his the old-school kleptomaniac, totalitarian leader who uses the Police and Army to silence all open opposition, who steals government funds to expand his own wealth and the other goes to loyal cronies. As the nepotism is fierce in the institutions and the deals are around the master and his family. The transparent and procedural procurement happens on his watch, not on government procedures where established norms matters, the government is infested with leadership and waiting on orders from upon high. With that in mind, no man should have a vision other than him and the last words are his. He decides the faith and orders the arrest and detains. Because he believes he is the only one who can lead Uganda. Something he even said on the #UGDebate16 in February 2016. If you forgotten that part?

FDC Supporters Detained Kampala 17.02.2016

The incarcerations of Democratic Values are real, they are happening in Kampala and in the state of National Resistance Movement. The Social Media is the long line of freedoms, liberties and values that doesn’t matter for the President who are getting sworn-in tomorrow while his Army and Police is keeping the areas silenced and tense. Since the weapons are there and used. Shops even closed as the Police Violence happen in the streets and the footage was shocking!

I don’t really care that this other leaders are giving way to the President as they are not caring about their own people, though President Magufuli care more about Rates on the Crude Oil Pipeline than on principal in this matter, even when fellow brothers and sisters are living in a situation where the injustice and incarceration of democracy is happing as we speak.

Oil-pipeline

That the JEEMA headquarters was also raided today proves the levels of integrity as the party have nearly no following and the level of campaign was non-existing still with their planed celebration of 20 years existence tomorrow, they had to be raided by Police Force today! They just had to, to celebrate on the same day as inauguration of Museveni is a crime in the nation. If you celebrate something tomorrow keep it in silence and eat a rollex, okay?

Kampala 05052016 Arrest

The detaining, the violence and the harassment of opposition should be the worry, the social media ban is just the last piece of the puzzle, but a tiny one compared to the ones who has been going on with lightning speed since days before Election Day when the Police Force went up their Ante and took more charge on the Forum for Democratic Change as they feared the level of support and the organization that they have built up over the years. Peace.

The continuous harassment of the Opposition in Uganda; detained up-to 150 and more to come as the Swearing-In is around the corner!

Lukwago 09.05.2016

There are certain levels of misogyny and agony of the civilians and Opposition leaders that have their houses surrounded and the Police Force closely detaining them.

The levels of impunity and the access of them with that the Media is silenced and stopping to write on it as they fear the National Resistance Movement. The Media and Journalist fears the government so much that they even right after Hon. Jim Muhwezi said it was banned stopped saying the word “Defiance” on live TV; it was so hilarious and sad at the same time.

Today there is still nothing clarified with the whereabouts of Ingrid Turinawe, during the night Wafula Oguttu went from being monitored to become house-arrested. Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda is detained, Lord Mayor Lukwago is house-arrested, Dr. Kizza Besigye is house-arrested, Francis Mwijukye is either house-arrested or detained as his state is not cleared. There are estimated that the FDC Party have a 150 members and leaders in total together with the ones mentioned in jail, house-arrest and detained.

Interim Order Court Uganda April 2016 P1

The word Defiance is banned and the campaign of the opposition is by an unlawful decree or court order illegal. Which have made Forum for Democratic Change them illegal and all activity from them the same. By the ways the Police Force are acting and detaining them. Harassing them and taking them in. Without real charges or illegal activity as the Ruling Party NRM have troubles with Prayers and wearing Blue shirts in the country of Yellow and Steady Regress.

The Ruling Party NRM and President Museveni is gearing up for the Swearing-In to his 7th Term, though officially 5th Term, but it is Seventh Term because I does not cut away the first decade of his rule as he was unelected to that part. He grabbed the first ten-years in power and have done it again. Therefore he has to made FDC illegal!

MuseveniandIdiAmin

The Ruling Party is saying they are starting a NEW ERA with the Swearing-In on the 12th May, if that means to be draconian empire run by a President Museveni who eats alone. Who makes other thinkers and other men and woman criminal by a law that gets used when it fits the Executive! President Museveni is so controlling and so overbearing that he goes into investigations of killings of a Boda-Boda driver, all of sudden shows up at Hospital and complain at the underpaid staff that they are lazy, while his institutions are not delivering as promised equipment or medicines as the monies for this is embezzled by his loyal cronies!

The New Era is and will start with not the words of democratic values as it was ushered in, back in the day, even if there were uncertainties at the time as Museveni had no wish to open up the space for multi-party democracy. And it is now proven that he really never wanted it. It was just done to silence the foreign donors so he could be a continued fueled by donor funding to keep the budget balanced. Now he seems not to care.

Kampala 05052016 Arrest

The New Era starts with relics of the past oppression of opposition. They are detained and arrested. Some are even charged with terrorism by local courts. The other are detained for long and detained in jail. The proud regenerate government that was supposed to deliver something new and make the country stable and safe, not only for the political elite, but also for the people! That is what is happening now and therefore the NRM elite is trying to defend the inaccurate interim order that makes this all happen and mask the illegality of these arrest. As I cannot believe any nation, not even North Korea has laws where the “Prayers for the Nation” is banned and directly illegal.

The Police are surrounding the homes and detaining the FDC leaders in their homes and the silence of the media comes as result of the assault of the freedoms of speech and political liberty of people to choose their political aspiration. Seemingly is that the oppression and the levels of Police brutality as the ruling regime wish to have a silenced country in the coming days as the President is making himself ready for the Swearing-In at Kololo Independence Grounds.

Kampala 05052016 Army

So what more can the Police do then fill the prisons with the FDC members and leaders. House-Arrest their leaders and take them away with no charge or criminal activity behind them. The Police under Museveni is making the FDC the enemy and with a vile force, they might have detained at most 50 FDC leaders in 2011, but now they are up to 150! They want to rewrite history as the rule is illegitimate and not just. The truth is so and therefore President Museveni is Swearing-In with the gun and with the civilians and political advisories detained and house-arrested or taken away to unknown location.

FDC HQ 09.05.2016

Also the continued siege of the FDC Headquarters at Najjankumbi where the Police are entering and are arresting the FDC staff and bannishing the journalist from the property. As viable proof of the extent the NRM Regime is hassling with the guns to silence the FDC at this point. They are not allowed with party works or with orginizing their party as they are now totally in the mercy of the Police Force who got ‘Carte Blanche’  to take them all without charges or questions. They have even beaten the journalist who are there at the FDC Headquarters to learn them the lesson of not following instructions from the ruling regime.

In numbers the talley of who has been taken today alone: 

“4 FDC leaders have been kidnapped.
1 senior attorney is languishing in hard-core criminal investigation police torture facility.
50 plus FDC Rukungiri supporters including leadership members.
37 other FDC activist brutaly arrested for attending prayers” (Moses Atocon Atyekwo, 09.05.2016).

His Power is not fueled by the People, the popular ballot, but instead by the force of the Police and the Army. As long as he is paying them and making them and the leadership of the army and police happy, then he might sustain, but the people should think about if the FDC and the FDC leadership can be taken without impunity, who is next? Are you or your neighbor as the Police will round you up in your home and detain you at the Police Post or the nearest Prison. Certainly the levels of arrests and detaining is gone too far as the unlawfulness of the NRM is in full bloom! Peace.

President Uhuru Kenyatta Statement: “Congratulating President Yoweri Museveni with the Re-Election!” (20.02.2016)

Kenyatta Museveni

I am very pleased to congratulate His Excellency President Yoweri Museveni on his re-election as President of the Republic of Uganda. The people of Uganda have spoken, and they have spoken very clearly. We respect their choice of President Museveni.

Kenya values its close friendship with Uganda. That friendship is founded on a common history, a common culture, and common interests. In years past, we have worked closely together for the prosperity and freedom of our nations. We look forward to continuing the work that both our nations have already done, together and in concert with the East African Community, the African Union, and IGAD. We look forward, too, to even closer integration.

I wish President Museveni every success as he serves his nation for another term. He and Uganda can count on my support, and my friendship, as well as that of their brothers and sisters in Kenya.
