Opinion: Amama Mbabazi chosen silence is a token of his loyalty to the NRM!

I have never left the NRM. I just happen to be an NRM member who wants change” Amama Mbabazi

I wonder if some has to put a sign or use one of those big posters by the Constitutional Square or the Square in Central Kampala with a giant picture of Amama Mbabazi and have a quote over it saying: “this guy has been missing, if have any information, give it to the proper authorities”. Maybe, then he will reveal himself and actually speak in public. Its like he is paid to be silent, that after a long campaign since 2015 and the takeover of The Democratic Alliance (TDA) under the political umbrella of Go Forward. He just has gone missing after his election petition was dismissed. He had some days of siege and was under house arrest, but he haven’t been vocal. Utter silence. Nothing.

Mbabazi, the former notorious devious character within the National Resistance Movement, the man who was a giant supporter and organizer, the man who fought cases abroad and internally. The man that pushed the NRM in the direction that pleased the President. Was suddenly to ambitious and the man clipped his wings. Not like Gilbert Bukenya will ever play a vital role anywhere. He is a stooge and massive bouncing balls of jello, moving where the envelopes are given. Not sure if the same is now the activity of Mbabazi. But his silence is a statement.

Amama Mbabazi rocked the scene and made himself a viable candidate for many, even got the Democratic Party Norbert Mao supporting his candidacy. Mbabazi seemed like a real contender and used massive funds to use Go Forward and even build up offices around the country. Even as his consultation meetings met the same fortune as the FDC and Besigye. Met with tear-gas and often harassment by the police. He got the taste of the Public Order Management Act (POMA), that he had supported and used against Besigye. So he got the feeling of being on the fringes and standing on guards against his former President and party. Even if he said he was still a member of it. The former Prime Minister and Secretary General of the NRM.

Mbabazi silence on all matters is visible, it is a token of his dying loyalty to Museveni. The man that built him up and later destroyed him. Mbabazi was a loyal subject, but when he started to show ambition, he was thrown to the dogs. That is why Vice-President Edward Ssekandi just existing and not even in the public much. He is just collecting his salary and not saying much, if anything at all. Seemingly, like the outcast Mbabazi.

Mbabazi might do this in solidarity with the President. Just sitting in his home and saying nothing. Not acting, just living and taking care of his spoils. His businesses and whatnot he has. Only mentioning the Uganda Cranes of late, other than that nothing.

We knew you traveled through desert between 2015 and 2016, even passed through a den of thieves and came out with scratches and humiliating results. Still, you didn’t expect fanfare and being called a legend after what you passed while being a NRM cadre and leader?

Let’s be clear, the silence is a token of your loyalty. That is why he doesn’t say or do anything. He is a NRM Member and NRM loyal subject, who still wants to show that to the President. Mbabazi don’t have the character or the guts to do anything else. He wont risk his ill-gained wealth or proposed possible authority, that could be given him at a later stage. Since he knows how the President operates and he is anticipating his next move. Peace.

Besigye, Lukwago in Kabale court over 2012 offences (Youtube-Clip)

“Former FDC presidential candidate Dr. Kiiza Besigye appeared before the Kabale chief magistrates Court to answer charges of malicious damage to property and inciting violence” (NTV Uganda, 2016)

Throwback Clip: “Treason test: State has hard test to prove” (19.10.2011)

“What does it mean to face a treason charge? And does taking part in the walk-to-work protests amount to plotting to overthrow the government? And what are the chances that the suspects will be convicted?” (NTV Uganda, 2011).

My 2 Cents: 

Instead of Walking to Work, it is now “Defiance”, but the same actions, just more vicious. The Internet doesn’t forget. Remember that! Peace.

Besigye and Lukwago in a Kabale Debacle; and the Calvary hurries to tow-them and arrest them in the mountains (Updated)

Kabale Blocking Hotel 19.04.2016

As of yesterday the FDC Leader travers from Kasangati to Kabale and even had an unintended procession through Mbarara as a result of driving through the town to get ready for the court and charges given in Kabale Court.

Earlier in the day the Uganda Police Force who have followed the cars of the FDC through the country had gotten orders to stop the FDC convoy from entering the Court at Kabale. The Uganda Police Force had put up road-blocks around the hotel of Dr. Kizza Besigye. So that he could not answer the case together with his counsel of Erias Lukwago.

Kabale 19.04.2016

FDC Prayers in Kabale today!

If this the right case it is the continuation of servings that have been served FDC and A4C activist after the “Walk to Work” in 2012. That the Kabale High Court has given them before and in midst of last year Besigye and Lukwago did not show up in September 2015. This was because the Kabale Municipality said they incited violence in Kabale in 2012.

Here are the statements on what happen on the day and there is more to come.

Besigye Kabala 19.04.2016

Erias Lukwago statement:

“We travelled long hours, and spent a night in Kabale to answer tramped up charges before the chief magistrates court in Kabale, following a warrant of arrest that was issued against us at the instance of the state, only to be informed by a Grade one magistrate that the trial magistrate is on leave. The case has been adjourned to 6th June 2016” (Lukwago, 19.04.2016).

Kizza Besigye statement:

“Our case has been adjourned to 6th June, 2016 and the reason is that the magistrate who was supposed to handle the case is away on leave. As we were on our journey back around Butobere we were cut off and surrounded by 3 Police vehicles plus the notorious Police van UP 4860 that is driven by the goons” (Besigye, 19.04.2016).

Rukungiri 19.04.2016

Latest Update!

“The Police has brought an armoured carrier and now they are fixing the winch to tow us away in the mountains towards Rukungiri” (Besigye, 19.04.2016).

“Our vehicle being pulled by a police truck through Kabale mountains, on a terribly bumpy and slippery murrum Road towards Rukungiri. It’s raining cats and dogs” (Lukwago, 19.04.2016).

19.04 Mountains Besigye

So without charges or any reason have the Ugandan Police taken them by the force and using an Armored Personnel Vehicle. This is the democracy of Uganda at the moment and the fight against the rigged election should continue; as the 10th Parliament is just a fraud as long as the Police can tow-cars with Party-Officials and Opposition leaders with no apparent reason.

Further on the way: 

“Now at Rwamucucu, heading towards Muhanga in Rukiga county” (Lukwago, 19.04.2016).

Mountains Part 2. 19.04.2016

“We are between Rwamucucu and Muhanga in Rukiga, they have stopped in a swamp and they are holding canisters of teargas they want to break into our car and get us out” (Besigye, 19.04.2016).

 Mountains Part 3. 19.04.2016
I think that is enough for now. There will be more to come. Peace.

Mbabazi your either a NRM member or a Opposition Candidate; You can’t be NRM and Oppositon at the same time!

UGDebate2016 P8 Amama

If you was like me and wondered what was with the answers and figure of Honorable Amama Mbabazi on the #UGDebate16. Now he went on the first radio program after that. This is just days after and 30 days to go polls.

Why I react today is that he said this on the radio today:
“I have never left the NRM. I just happen to be an NRM member who wants change”.

Whatever he will say the rest of the program doesn’t matter. He has lost something or forgot something. Why is he still trying to be loyal to NRM? It might be true that you officially never left. The way you fired from being Primer Minister and losing your position in the party. Both Dr. Ruhakana Ruganda who took that place for you and how Justine Kasule Lumumba as the Secretary General in the NRM, both positions Honorable Amama Mbabazi had until recently.

In September 2014 he was fired from being the Prime Minister of Uganda. This happen after the PM was against the constitutional change in the party so that Mzee could be the presidential candidates for yet another time. So the power-struggle led to his downfall from the higher parts of hierarchy in the NRM party and in Government. The trying to topple the President Museveni and stealing the hot-seat, and becoming His Excellency in the ruling party were to be expected! That Mzee would not forgive him for trying to take his posistion as he has done before. 

NRM

Then this happen in January 2015:
“NRM’s National Executive Committee has approved members of the NRM Secretariat who were recently appointed by the party chairman President Yoweri Museveni during December’s delegates conference” (NTV Uganda, 08.01.2016).

From there it has been issues lasting all summer with his ambitions of being presidential aspirant in the NRM, even when you had the new laws and amendment on the constitution of the Party to fix the motion to make it work; so that Mzee could continue as party Chairman and Presidential Candidate. This was something Amama Mbabazi at some point couldn’t accept. Because of that he lost his meal-ticket in the government and also in the party. That has apparently not stopped him. AS we have seen all through 2015 and beginning of 2016.

Now today he was on the 93.3 KFM Radio and he was quoted saying that he never left the party and was still a NRM member. That is conflicting since he is a so-called independent Candidate running also as the front-man for The Democratic Alliance (TDA), a loose based opposition alliance to counter the NRM, or was that not so?

Bukenya A

He might be a member of the NRM since he is a NRA historical as some of the other presidential candidates pointed out at the debate this weekend. Still, it is suspect on his motives in opposition if he still feels loyalty to the party he has been running as Secretary General and been in different positions in Government for. That we already knew and his display on Saturday on the debate pointed that out. Though this one was on another level, like he we’re literally saying “I never left it, but I never really left it”. Either you did leave or got kicked out. Depends on how blatant you see the specifics of the actions of his former executive, and how he executed his order to when he was his subordinate. That is just me I guess. Since that is something that has died down and not really been discussed because everybody knows that you do not go against the king, and the king is Mzee, the executive who knows how to deal with those who wants his place. As he done with Bukenya and other before Mbabazi, for some reason that get forgotten now and then.

It is decent of man wanting change, though he still want’s be affiliated with NRM that he never left. That is bugging me; if he really wants change then he should try to distance himself from the former executive and his party, even if Amama Mbabazi feels ownership in it since he invested such a great piece of his life into it. The matter is the impression that he still feels so interconnected with the party that he has had issues with all through 2015. Still he points out he never left it. Still, is a member of the party while being a presidential candidate for Go-Forward and under the opposition TDA umbrella alliance who kept most of the essential opposition parties in the country.

MbabaziTDA110915P1

If you don’t see something wrong in that, how is it possible to be viable as a opposition leader in the newly started Go-Forward party/group and becoming a presidential candidate in a alliance of opposition and still be a member of the ruling party! How can you live with that? Doesn’t add up, there is an extra piece in the puzzle and shouldn’t be there, because Amama Mbabazi should be either or?

Share A Coke W Amama 101115

He can’t be a part of the ruling party and be an opposition at the same time, it’s like Pepsi will be Coca-Cola or Coca-Cola trying to be Pepsi. He can’t be part of the ruling party while being in opposition, that doesn’t work; he can support the ruling party, but not be genuine part of it. That is a hard task since you should represent a different approach and reaches other parts of the public and citizens then the ruling-party; also address the issues in the country in another way then the ruling party. Hon. Amama Mbabazi has to distance himself if not he will look more like a knock-off version of Mzee, something that will not be going forward instead going backwards into the same snake-pit that eats the government funds like ants going after sugar.

Uganda-parliament-2

Amama Mbabazi have a great issues if he is still part of the National Resistance Movement; even if he didn’t take part of the general conferences and other bigger councils in the previous year; this after his sacking  as the Prime Minister. The issue is that he can’t be a serious opposition candidate while being affiliated with NRM. That is not a great way and paved way into change, that is a goal and manifesto that his outfit now is supposed to have. Go-Forward or is it Go-Forward-NRM, since you never left? Then there are issues for CP, PPP, JEEMA and DP who still is a part of the TDA, are they supporting a NRM-ish candidate or are they supporting a opposition candidate against Mzee?

Mzee is the ruling party and its commander as he has been from the get-go, Amama Mbabazi have been a loyal subject and subordinate to him, therefore seems to be embedded to him still; that is natural for him and therefore he was acting like he was on the #UGDebate16, that was cleaning himself of the actions of his past. This answer proves also the clear past that everybody knows and why you can ask questions to his real motivations as a Go-Forward and TDA Presidential Candidate while calling himself a member of the Ruling Party NRM. That does not make sense.

Museveni-with-a-dummy-map-of-uganda

Any member of NRM are allowed to want change and make a difference, though to a state that they cannot break the chain in command and go against its Mzee. Go-Forward can’t be independent and opposition while their leader still affiliates with the ruling party. Then their mixing their roles and isn’t either or… A boat has to have harbor where it sets sails from, right now he seems to be middle of the sea and hasn’t decided which harbor that he want to anchoring at. He is either anchoring at NRM or at the Opposition. That should not be confused or played around with. Amama Mbabazi who has been a political person for so long should know this simple rules of engagement and codes of conduct as man involved in the politics.

Go-Forward has many former NRM as it is natural, as they have former men from Activist4Change, FDC and other opposition parties, even people who haven’t been affiliated with any party before. Therefore it is centered on the faith and belief that Amama Mbabazi will bring change and difference, be a viable candidate who can become the President. He tried to become the Presidential Candidate through the NRM during summer which leads to NRM CEC meeting during July 2015. So the issues is that it seems the man is either not sure what he is or who he sends the message for, if he really want to be president on his own behalf or want to have loyalty towards the NRM. Go-Forward is a fresh party and built around him. Go-Forward has alliance and built a machine around the TDA. This can’t be a sideshow to the NRM, and if so: they are not really opposition.

Amama 53rd

I feel that if he was saying the truth at the radio, than he is a NRM member who runs a Opposition party in an Opposition Alliance. That sounds wrong in all ways and make his Go-Forward/TDA/NRM kind of constellation mixed of ruling-party and opposition, so how does that goes on a political scale between liberation force and wish of change, and is the change that you’re going to be you hopefully getting the executive power and becoming the president, or making a genuine change in a new NRM outfit named Go-Forward. That is an honest question, because if you are a NRM member, then Go-Forward is a NRM-outfit since the creator is still being a part of them. That is what I struggle with and makes his quote and words on the radio worrying. But that is just me. Let me clear: there is not possible to be part of the ruling-party and opposition at the same time. That is something that everybody understands. Except of JPAM aka Amama Mbabazi aka Deflectionator. Deflectionator, I am just kidding. I had to. Peace.

Mzee doesn’t feel the Calvary can protect the election anymore; therefore he changes guards and get the Army to flex for him

IGP Kayihura Gen Katumaba M7

There been news that Mzee have ordered the Uganda People’s Defence Force to be in-charge of the security during the rest of the election-time, because in the previous elections the people or citizens of Uganda have been sleeping. They we’re sleeping so well and misunderstood by Mzee. He must have forget the reactions to the recent General Election in 2011 that ended in public display and post-election violence; at the strange past, where the now Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye and other politicians started the demonstrations with the group of Activist4change and “Walk to Work”.

Mzee have a little amnesia and even have forgotten that have got so much money to spend on post-election violence. But why postpone the violence when you can intimidate the public in 40 days before the Election Day and polls. That sounds so much sweeter, right? Why wait to be hit and the international media on your agenda when you can do it more in silence now.

Mzee have the plan since he is seeing the Go-Forwand/TDA and FDC Presidential Candidate during better than expected. While Mzee and his party is like ferrying more people than the ordinary safari company in the country and especially countryside where he have lost support. So the easy way is to rent buses and get people from other districts to look like you still have the power and suction in the country.

Mzee have issues, strong issues with opposition; that’s why when he looks back in time. He remember with joy the times between 1986 to 2005; when there wasn’t anything else than his own built Movement Political System. That went away with the 2005 referendum. That has opened the gates for other people then Mzee to actually rule! While Mzee did apparently around the same time he did take away the Presidential Term Limits, that why still Mzee have executive powers and campaigning for yet another term.

Mzee have seen the rise of people lately and that people aren’t eating of his hand and enjoying his speeches as they once did. While the Uganda Police Force and IGP Gen Kale Kayihura doesn’t make the people fear Mzee and his folks enough. Not even Mzee’s Wife’s grin and speeches can’t beat the lions into shape, the people are to touchy with the Leopard’s anus. So he has to switch up.

Leopard

Mzee has already switched up in the UPDF and gotten his loyal friend Chief of Defence Forces Gen Katumba Wamala. Since IGP Kayihura haven’t played this well enough and his spokesman CP Fred Enanga looks foolish. That makes Mzee looks like dumb-dumb and he can’t have that. To look dumb isn’t respected and Mzee need all respect and honor to man.

Mzee can’t have this and the way Hon. Amama Mbabazi of the Go-Forward his new arch-nemesis and former arch-nemesis Dr. Kizza Besigye of the FDC is making is life and election campaigning so hard. The Police can’t even beat them enough or the block their campaign rallies. They are not creating enough havoc so that the people lose hope in them. The police aren’t even jailed enough FDC people or Go-Forward to secure Ugandans from them. Because Ugandans are NRM; Mzee is that right or have I misunderstood you? No wait, Ugandans are the ones that will work for you and under your executive power.

cadets10 UPDF

Later today he released this through State House of Uganda:

“President Museveni has assured Ugandans that no one can disrupt Uganda’s hard earned peace and security. President Museveni said: “The Army and other security agencies are strong enough to handle anybody who attempts to interrupt the peace that is prevailing in the country.”

The Security Agencies went into collaboration before the election as they made 40 Units consistence of Uganda Prisons, Internal Security Organization, External Security Organization, Uganda Police Force (UPF) and Uganda People’s Defense Force (UPDF). This was in the middle of 11th November 2015. So this measure seems now in beginning of January 2016 to not be enough, together with the Electoral Commission’s not use of UPF as much as they have done to now during this stressful time.

Gen Katumba Wamala

Now that the letter between President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni the executive power of Uganda have ordered the Chief of Defence Forces Gen Katumba Wamala to deploy troops around the country to secure the election. So that he will take over for IGP Gen Kale Kayihura is following the Presidential Candidates and other ones trying to get voted in for the general elections in February this year. Just 40 days before the Presidential polls happens. It must be a tactic of fear. The power of anti-riot police following Go-Forward Presidential Candidate Convoy isn’t enough. The stressful movements of the police towards the Forum for Democratic Change Presidential Candidate Convoy that have done what it could even violence when it has to. For Mzee that is not enough and safe enough; Bukwo District against the FDC and Northern districts policing of Go-Forward. That has not been cutting it. The defiance and struggle of the opposition is not enough.

Mzee need bigger guns to control these vile political parties that he didn’t really wanted. That is why he had elections for it twice. Not only in 28th July 2005 where the “Yes” for Multi-party system against the Movement System where 92, 44% versus 7, 56%. They had a previous try out before the election in 2001. That was in 29th June 2000 when 90, 71% voted for the Movement System versus the Multi-Party System who got 9, 2%. So Mzee got one less election with more parties then NRM, I am sure he wished the result in 2005 could be reversed since there is so much work with elections after releasing UPC, DP, PPP, PDP, TIC, TDA, FDC etc etc. To keep the NRM people secure because the true Ugandans are NRM.

NRM 13.11.15 Kole South

Mzee and have enjoyed in silence the words of his chairman. The man he employed in the Electoral Commission who said that he would call on the military if needed to keep the elections peaceful. You have ensured that he doesn’t have to do that. Mzee have done it today!

Mzee, this is ironic, it’s your people who are violent, most likely the Police and Crime Preventers are the ones who usually are behind the issues. The NRM Primaries we’re the King-Kong Cadres who came with security agents and took the paperwork and results to clear it before delivered to the NRM Electoral Commission for review. The same is happening here, the NRM is initiating together with the Police or the Police alone after orders from the Electoral Commission. So the opposition convoys are in the field not knowing what kind of police are there or what kind of crime preventers who enters the area of campaigning. That is why the violence has not erupted at Mzee’s Campaign Rallies; instead it is just poster perfect and wonderful yellow flowery smiles. Up to a point where it looks unrealistic and the perfection is just like Insta-DAMN. Well, that is not enough for Mzee, he doesn’t like that. Because FDC and Go-Forward campaigning is big and without ferrying voters from districts that is from other ones than where Mzee actually campaign giving them a bus-ride and paying for support. That must hurt after 29 years and nobody giving you love!

Mzee, you must be desperate to see the people going to FDC instead of you, even to Mbabazi then you! Therefore you have to use the trick of old since you haven’t learned any new. UPM is reacted. Uganda Patriot Movement; is resurrected through National Resistance Movement. They need to go to the bush, this time they are the UPC and have the UNLA in new name and state govern facilitated through the now UPDF! The generations have moved on and there new people in the army, still some old leaders from Luweero, though very few are still there. Mzee has kept a few of his men close and other have scattered like the ones who are his main opposition. So they know the Movement system and the way Mzee thinks. Still they try!

NRA M7

Mzee needs the army and bush-war tactics again, because he doesn’t trust anything else. Since he can’t produce any moral fiber or make anything worthwhile. Mzee lives and strides on the fear and not on the actual political platform or agenda since that is rewind from former elections; Mzee is not committed to deliver to the Ugandan people anymore, therefore he needs the army to secure that the Electoral Commission and Uganda Police Force is necessary tools for Mzee to get his will. That is so he can continue being the Executive Power and His Excellency President of Uganda. Mzee can’t trust the Uganda Police to deliver anymore and since it getting closer to the General Election in February 2016. That is why he trust now more in the advanced weapons then the Police to secure that he get the prize again, even if the opposition looks like it’s winning over the people this time around. Peace.   

A Weekend where the Police is creating havoc in Uganda and the FDC is the prey.

Uganda FDC 101015 P3 Rukungiri

It’s been two days since the 53rd Independence Day in Uganda. Yesterday was a day of mayhem from the Police against the political party of FDC. They trashed the cars and sent people who were going to the event in Rukungiri. On the road in the Greater Masaka area DPC Maximal Ogwang even put metal trenches to stop the cars. The pictures from yesterday tell its tale. The FDC  people that had issues with the police and also got into trouble because of their travels was Hon. Godfrey Ekanya, Hon. Patrick Amuriat, Fred Turya, Dr. Kizza Besigye, Hon. Amuriat Semujju and Hon. Kevina Taaka.

In Rukungiri this led to arrests of unnamed people who were a part of the organization who was setting up the equipment for the event and arrangement. DPC Wotwali just followed ordered from up high.

The day before the NRM had issues in another district. This after the NRM-Regime got in trouble with vote rigging. “Supporters of Mr Benon Matsiko Kyampa, who was contesting for NRM flag for Ngarama LC3 top seat stormed the sub-county headquarters where they abandoned their party cards protesting poll results announced by the sub-county registrar, Mr Robert Baingana, in favour of Mr Silver Kiiza”. This led to even rubber bullets and agony in the district. So the way the police is used to quell issues is really a pattern. Which lead to this: “The deputy RDC Isingiro, Mr Damiano Turyatunga, said they will investigate why police fired bullets and will ensure calm is restored in the area” (Mugume, 2015).

But let me go back to the troubles of the FDC:

And he did this because of this:

Press Release and Letter from the IGP Kale Kayihura

Later on the day the FDC men got released from the prisons they we’re put in. The worst was seeing the pictures of Fatuma Zaina was put on a truck and undressed in a display from the police that isn’t justified anywhere in the world.

In Rukungiri the people who were supposed to attend even went to the Police station to get the people freed from custody. The reports I have has said that even the people was jailed where freed after the reactions from the people in the town.

Museveni Gulu 091015

In the same time as this happen to the opposition the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni said this in Gulu:

“It is that if the country is going into election, some ‘people’ threaten violence, Uganda has long passed that kind of nonsense that portrays backwardness” (…)”I thought in elections you just talk and convince people, but in any case you want to cause violence, we also know how we shall deal with you because we shall not tolerate it” (Makumbi & Ocungi, 2015).

So the actions happening in the rest of the country towards the FDC is in his own words backwards. IGP Kale Kayihura has gone back in time and dropped the knowledge of oppressive behavior and misuse of the Public Order Management Act (POMA). That is because the President himself must fear the power of the FDC since he even gets the DPC to destroy the cars of they have.

To an extent yesterday the Danish Ambassador of Uganda had to go to the police and got Dr. Kizza Besigye and other FDC members out of prison. That tells the dire straits of the lawfulness. The Police of Uganda even drove him back to Kampala after the incidents on the road from Rukugiri. The same day after similar incident his own car was towed to Lyantonde. Where it surely still is sitting since the Police destroyed and trashed a few cars likes of Hon. Ekanya and Hon. Wafula.

Today this Sunday the 11th October there been report that the once who got the FDC leaders out of prison in Lyantonde has themselves ended up in cells there. This people are FDC chairman in town Yusuf Matovu, Woman’s secretary of town Yudaya Naiga and Chairman of the Town-Council Richard Kayondo. The DPC in the area must be irritated man and need some love!

The brutality and sadness of reporting this! But somebody got to show the suspect behavior that continues into a brutality that is inhumane. The way they crashed the cars and undressed a certain FDC woman is insane!

Besigye 101015

Kizza-Besigye said”It’s very clear that the NRM and Museveni Police and Electoral Commission are intent on denying the opposition a chance fair chance to compete. This further underlines the fundamental importance of fighting for political reforms. It further shows why we must have a defiant campaign”.

I also will show back to something I even wrote a time back. Read this:

President Yoweri Kaguta Musveni Campaign of Fear

The must be a change from the Police and NRM-Regime. The way the FDC political leaders, men and woman of the political party treatment are dire and sadden. Nothing about the recent events is about justice and rule of law. IGP Kale Kayihura and his DPC have taken the levels of bullishness to another level.

What happen on the road and convoys of FDC personnel is just astonishing. The way the cars and upon cars with police in Rukungiri and the way they shut it down was insane. The warnings and arguments from the IGP is misuse of the POMA law. Amama Mbabazi must be sad the way he argued for the law a few years back.

Refering the POMA as this: “A short trip back in history will show that the POMA was designed in the heat of the Walk-to-Work (W2W) protests led by opposition leader Colonel Kizza Besigye. Besigye has thrice stood against President Museveni, with the latest controversial poll on 18 February 2011 being won by the incumbent. In a broad sense, the POMA can therefore be referred to as the ‘Anti-Besigye Act’ or the ‘ABA’, as it was clearly designed to tighten the grip of the Police and security forces in the wake of the protests which rocked the country in the aftermath of the election” (…)”Secondly, the ABA/POMA places an inordinate degree of discretionary power in the police, and specifically in the inspector general. This is obviously problematic because it makes the IGP prosecutor and judge in his own case, violating basic principles of natural justice. Thirdly, the law gives lower-ranking police officers the perfect excuse not to take action which supports human rights. Rather, they are encouraged to curtail them. Hence, the first words out of the mouths of officers charged with breaking up an opposition demonstration are: ‘I’m (simply) acting on orders from above’” (Oloka-Onyango, 2014).

POMA is used as the Anti-FDC law and give the token to Police to cross all levels of human dignity to against the opposition. The way this weekend has unfolded and the way the words has been said. Justice it’s not. Dignity isn’t something the NRM-Regime is showing to the world. The way and run up to the election will be violent. Not because the Opposition is gripping and being violent. It’s because the Ugandan Police Force is using rubber bullets, tear-gas and undressing woman in broad daylight. Also trashing cars and showing it’s true color. Museveni isn’t a man who can be proud of his loyal cronies. Since the actions are just dire and sad. The grips of power are now put into a state where the state is using the force and laws in ways that shouldn’t have occurred. This will light the fire of the opposition and give more energy to the struggle against the NRM-Regime. Not because the Opposition is always right. But because the NRM-Regime is so wrong and acting so insincere. There no justice in the vile attempt to secure peace.

The IGP Kale Kayihura and Yoweri Kaguta Museveni need a reality check. The recent events happen on their watch and the world is watching. People like me won’t accept that. Peace.

Sagaen om Prosjekt Muhoozi forsetter (og noen Press releases og andre nyheter)

Jeg har venner i FDC og A4C. Via disse har jeg disse nyhetene. Ikke at dette er interesant for Norsk presse. Av den enkle grunnen til de kjenner ikke til historien til personene som er i sentrum av sagaen. Idag har det blitt gitt beskjed at Kale Kayihura er blitt general, og han er allerede overhode over politiet i Uganda.

Daily Monitor, Red Pepper og 2 radio stasjoner ryktes forsatt å være lukket. Gaten rundt Monitor Media er stengt. Samtidig er det blitt rokkeringer i hæren. General Katumba etter at Sejusa er borte.

Muhoozi project har kommet til pressen og presidenten vil ikke ha noe slikt. Daily Monitor sendte klage til retten, den ble forkastet. Det skal bli satt opp ny høring den 30 Mai. Inntil da ser det kanskje ut som kontorene til avisen vil være stengte – samtidig er statspressen i New Vision i full vigør. Her er offisielle Press-release om saken:

PRESS STATEMENT ON THE SEARCH OF THE NATION MEDIA GROUP AND PEPPER PUBLICATIONS

Members of the Uganda Police Force this morning cordoned off the premises of the Nation Media Group in Namuwongo and Pepper Publications in Namanve. The FM radio stations – K FM and Dembe FM were taken off-air.

This is to reassure Ugandans that the government is not interfering with press freedom.

The search of the above premises comes on the heels of the utterances made by Gen.David Sejusa, aka Tinyefuza which have caused undue excitement. This is being treated as a matter of national security.

However the police is working within the parameters of the law, specifically, section 37 of the Penal Code which bars the publication of information prejudicial to national security.The Police went through the due legal process and secured a court order

which was issued by a court of competent jurisdiction (Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court).There is therefore nothing untoward or surprising about the procedures used, as great care has been taken to follow the law to the letter. For the time being the premises in question are being treated as crime scenes.

As soon as investigations are over

which will be very soon as police is under instructions to handle the matter expeditiously

the premises will be duly handed back to the owners.

About social media

This is also to quash rumours going round that Social Media has been banned or that the platforms are about to be closed. This is not true. There is no plan to switch off or disconnect Social Media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

Minister of Information and National Guidance

Min kommentar på Press release:
For å kommentere dette brevet fra ministeren av Informasjon og nasjonens veiledning. Man kan si at det er en hyggelig form for overtakelse av mediahuset Monitor Media Uganda. Så man kan bare si at hvis man skal kunne påstå at det er relativ media frihet i landet. Da skulle man kunne påstå at slike handlinger er uverdig. President Museveni kunne kanskje på 80 tallet og begynnelsen av 90 tallet å være en man med ønske om demokratiske og frihetstanker til folket. Selv etter å kuppet dette fra Obote II og Yusuf Lule. Derfor kan man lure hva som har skjedd siden 1986 til idag, annet enn at makten har korrupert. For å vise mer galskapen, her er press release fra Politiet:

UGANDA POLICE FORCE
20 May 2013
PRESS RELEASE

Uganda Police, on May 15, 2013, received a Court Order, from the Chief Magistrates Court Nakawa, requiring Daily Monitor journalists to avail and provide the original copy of a letter and other related documents, purportedly authored by Gen. David Sejusa (a.k.a.Tinyefuza), and the source of the said missive. The said documents are to help police investigate criminal offences.Daily Monitor Publications was duly served with the Court Order and confirmed receipt by signature.Though multiple requests were made, the organization has adamantly refused to comply with the Court Order leading to issuance of a search warrant by the same Nakawa Magistrates Court.Today, May 20, 2013, in pursuance of the search warrant Daily Monitor premises have been cordoned off in accordance with the Laws of Uganda. In particular, Section 27 of the Police Act.Similarly a search warrant has been secured for Red Pepper premises in respect of the three press releases allegedly authored by Gen. Sejusa. Uganda Police is currently searching the premises to recover the said press releases.Uganda Police shall continue to occupy and search the two premises until the said documents are retrieved to assist with ongoing investigations.Uganda Police further requests that all concerned parties cooperate with the police in the execution of the search warrant.

Kommentar på denne:
Her forsetter man å forsvare angrepet og hvorfor man gjør det. Man kan si hva man vil. Men vil det forsvare det. Her er det en statement fra den ene avisen Red pepper:

STATEMENT ON CURRENT SITUATION AT RED PEPPER
May 21, 2013
Yesterday morning, we received a search warrant from Magistrate’s Court in Nakawa requiring us to hand over to the police a Press Release that we had received from Gen. David Sejusa’s lawyers and published in the Red Pepper on May 15th 2013.
After consulting with our lawyers, we proceeded to hand over to the police a copy of this same Press Release. The police went ahead and carried out a search of our offices and cordoned of the area. Because of this, we have not been able to publish an edition of Red Pepper and it’s sister papers today.
We are saddened and disappointed that despite us complying with the court’s request, the police have refused to vacate our premises and to allow us to carry on with our work. They insist that they are carrying out more search for documents which they neither told us nor the magistrate who gave them the search warrant.
We have since been informed by our friends in government that this is not about just a Press Release which was distributed to all media in Uganda, but a long term plan orchestrated to cripple Red Pepper economically and disable its capacity to do business in Uganda anymore. We have been informed that the plan is to keep our offices closed for as long as they like, dismantle our new printing press, destroy our computers and servers by installing malicious malware and then hand over the junk when they are satisfied that we have been taken back to the stone age.
We need to remind all Ugandans and the international community that this is not the first time a raid of this nature is happening to Red Pepper. In 2008, men with guns, dressed in military uniform and riding government pick up trucks bombed this same printing press and burnt it down.
The act was captured on CCTV and despite a police investigation; none of the culprits has ever been brought to justice. This latest invasion is therefore another attempt to whet their long held desire to cripple an investment that is employing hundreds of Ugandans. This is a classic case of economic sabotage in which the government turns against a business owned by its citizens.
The Red Pepper is a law-abiding company. We respect the police and the courts of law. But we demand that the police and the courts of law do the same of law adding businesses in this country. There is no justifiable reason why the police and the courts should deny the hundreds of innocent Ugandans who work at The Red Pepper an opportunity to continue earning a living. If there’s a criminal case to pursue, we believe the process can go on without necessarily disabling the operations of a legally established company in Uganda.
We ask that the police and the courts to do their job without interfering with the freedom of the press as enshrined in the Constitution of Uganda.

Siste Kommentar:
Yes, her er min siste kommentar. Dette viser hvor alvorlig det hele er. Og ikke minst hvor seriøst det hele er. Hvis ikke bildene på forrige bloggen fortalte sitt språk. Burde disse virkelig fortelle en viss sannhet og løgner. Som ikke kan kommenteres. Ikke minst hvor langt en autoritær stat gjør for å bevare sannheter og prosjekter unna sin befolkning. Håper dette var god lesning. Hvis ikke kanskje det åpnet dine øyne litt. Du kan si hva du vil. Men dette er ikke gjort korrekt ei eller av et statsapperat som virkelig vil ha fri presse. Peace.

#Kony2012 Pt.2 – Kvakksalvere!

Endelig gav de rett fakta om hvor LRA holder til. Som er i en trekant mellom DRC – CAR og Sør-Sudan. Endelig kom en sannhet frem. Om virkelig like mange mennesker har begynt å støtte denne organisasjonen forsett sin kamp. Selv om den har gjort det på feil måte.  Ikke at LRA er en hyggelig gjeng med mennesker som deler ut planter til mennesker som de møter. Men metodene og målet til organisasjonen har ikke vært korrekt. Derfor med denne tredje videoen på kort tid. Kan jeg forsatt ikke støtte dem. Ikke fordi jeg ønsker LRA eller andre militser til å drive med forferdeligheter. Når man alrede vet at UPDF leter og jakter mannen. Samtidig som NRM styret gjør i disse dager all poltisk handling i offentlighet forbudt. Med å bannlyse A4C: eller Activist4Change. Som gjør fredelig aksjoner mot regjerningen for å kvitte seg med korrupte og uærlige ledere i parliamentet. At dette skjer samtidig er magisk for Museveni.

Fordi verden vil bare se på #Kony2012. Ikke på hva som skjer i Kampala eller i selve politiske landskapet i Uganda. Våkn opp! Se! Les. Hør! Ikke at LRA er .. snille og fredselskende personer. Fordi det er en annen ting som vile vært feil. At Touareg har tatt over nordlige delen av Mali, rett etter at oberster har tatt kontrol i Bamako i Mali. Viser forsatt makten i geværet. Selv med små styrker rundt omkring. Ikke så mange årene siden Guinea ble tatt over via ett kupp. Dette er jo det virkelig Museveni frykter etter å holdt makten siden 1986. Men ikke av Joseph Kony, men av FDC, UPC og DP. Som er sammen om å gjøre fredlige markeringer i Uganda via Action4Change. Noe som ingen støtter eller bryr seg om. Så please oversee eøøer være litt ærlig med seg selv. LRA er drit. UPDF leter etter dem. A4C er forbudt. Fritt demokrati er bullshit i Uganda. Ikke minst gjør Museveni det samme som Obote gjorde. Så nå er det spennende å se hva som blir det neste! Ikke minst. Hva er det neste stuntet Invisible Children vil gjøre. Deres forsvarsvideo var forferdelig. Denne er ikke noe særlig bedre. Bare husk: Støtt A4C og UPDF sin leting etter LRA.

Hvis du lurer på noe eller ikke har fått nok svar av meg nå. Kommenter og jeg vil svare. Fordi dette er uverdig og begredelig. Helt feil fokus. Feile poeng. Ikke minst driver ikke organisasjonen arbeid andre plasser enn i Nord-Uganda. Hvor LRA for lengst er vekke i fra. Skjønner du hva jeg skriver? Vil du forstå. Disse er er kvakksalvere. Akkurat slike som selger spesial forskringspremier og alt andre med avtaler som høres bedre ut en det de i virkeligheten er.

Dette skjer idag:

Politiarbeid, tåregass og bli ordnet med “fredlig!”. Her er det en klart svar fra en broder:

Kommer med mer senere, når jeg er i humør til å slakte hele saken. #Kony2012 er bullshit. Vrakgods og fantasihistorier. Som gjøres for å gjøre en amerikaner fet eller noe slikt. Fordi dette er ikke ett bra arbeid. Dette er slett arbeid! Peace.

Så: Stop at Nothing to stop this #Kony2012 scam! Please!
