Uganda: (Besigye & Lukwago we’re…) Planning Illegal demonstrations (30.10.2016)

Kasangati 09.05.2016

Uganda Police Force has received reliable information from intelligence sources that Dr. Kiiza Besigye, Mr. Erias Lukwago and other political actors have been mobilizing and meeting vendors who were recently removed from the city streets with the aim of staging illegal demonstrations on Monday October 31, 2016.

Uganda Police Force wishes to inform the general public that it has not received any notification concerning the planned demonstration and that any person who participates in such illegal activity commits a crime.

Police shall take all necessary measures to prevent such illegal acts and ensure that no persons disrupt the normal business life and peace in the city.

The public is cautioned not to be misled and hoodwinked by such opportunistic individuals whose agenda is to cause the breach of peace in the city.

Vendors and hawkers are advised to be patient and work with the ministry responsible for Kampala Capital City affairs to find alternative solutions.

Police Confines Besigye Again (Youtube-Clip)

“The FDC women in command, a female pressure group that on Saturday, occupied the Police check point at Dr. Kiiiza Besigye’s home in Kasangati, have lost control to police. The fearless women group lost their base when they retired last night for family obligation. Their attempt to fight back and gain control was futile as Police surrounded Besigye’s home again” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

Concerning Besigye; The Police Force of Uganda only abate their own crime, apparently!

kasangati-17-10-2016

Well, it’s one of these days. Not in the name of CP Fred Enaga where-ever he rest his shallow head; the new muppet in charge of nonsense from officials on regards of House-Arrests and illegal detaining of fellow citizens is AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi. The noble man himself we’re publicly utterin these words:

“Police is continuing to monitor and regulate the movements of Dr. Kiiza Besigye as a precautionary measure because he has openly confessed to continue carrying out his defiance campaigns. “We can not abate and aid that crime, “ said Kaweesi. He added that Dr. Besigye is not under police siege as some media houses are portraying it. If he doesn’t involve in activities that breach peace, he is a free man noting that recently, he was in Mbale and Namutumba” (Uganda Police Force, 17.10.2016).

Still, if this is not taking away the freedoms of a man having closed of his property, not allowing him to leave to go to court. Just taking him away without any reason or any charge. Than he is not free. That is not about Defiance Campaign, Defiance Campaign in that regard is a silly excuse, as silly as the excuse of a man Andrew Felix Kaweesi must feel. He is just there because it feeds him and his folks. He can be so proud of his achievement that he is defending the blistering wrongs of National Resistance Movement. The Resistance Movement are having grand issues with Defiance. If it doesn’t sink in, then nothing does!

It besieged if you are booking all guests, throwing food to ground and ransacking every individual going towards the gates of Kasangati. Can somebody please start ransacking everything moving inside and outside the house of Mr. Kaweesi? Also, block his driveway and stand guard 24/7. Then he might now what kind of activities he is sponsoring with his uttering words.

They are monitoring and regulating, but without any consideration of freedom, liberty and justice involved. There are no fresh charges and the Court Orders are now non-existent as the breeches of impunity is staggering. The defence of these activities are just foolish at this point. How can you be a free man when your home is guarded, when your moves is monitored and regulated? Maybe that is Uganda Police thing, that under the following orderly blindly IGP Kayihura is the main assets of his mean. It is certainly not wits. Not that they can understand how the laws works and how they are breaching them, while they continue to pursuit Besigye!

There is not peace and is not freedom at Kasangati in Wakiso at the moment. Nobody claim there is real justice or just behaviour from the Police Force, they way they are acting around Besigye and his property! These acts of brutality where they steal what we common folks call ordinary life. Where his guests are violated as they enter his gates; these without charges or sentencing, proves the neglect of rule of law in the grand Republic of Uganda and under the Executive, the President Museveni who currently lets his Police Force silence his opponent with guards, guns and detentions when it pleases him! Be sure that Mr. Kaweesi has answers for the nonsense, as that is his paid job. Peace.

“House-Arrested without a new Charge”: Dr. Kizza Besigye could not go to registrar at the Judge; where he were to honour his bail requirements!

besigye-17-10-2016

Again, this is again, again! The Police Force under IGP Kale Kayihura have decided with no pre-warning or added charges to house-arrest Forum for Democratic Change leader Dr. Kizza Besigye. Just because they can so, it seems. The inevitable actions of impunity and disgracing the rule of law. Here is one take on the matter!

Kizza Besigye has been stopped from going to court to fulfill part of his bail conditions as ordered by High Court Judge Masalu Musene. Besigye is supposed to report to the registrar of Criminal Division of High Court once every after two weeks” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

With this the Courts are not getting him by the registration that are supposed to be kept until further notice, as the proceedings of the case and the collection of evidence is supposed to happen simultaneously as the charged possible felon can walk and do his normal business until trial. That is not happening with Besigye, as he has to be House-Arrested in Kasangati, Wakiso. Yet, again, just like during the weekend when he been picked up the Police Force and “black-Van” the Torture Van of Kifeesi Police Squad to silence the man and his activities.

He were barred from answer and follow requests from the courts. He is isolated without any consideration to his freedoms, liberty or justice. It is containing him without any justification. The imminent question: are the any precautions rules and acts that can validate these efforts against the citizen?

We should ask that as the continued strive to keep him at bay, arrest, house arrest and detain. To tow his car home and take him to nearest police post together with loyal allies. That is what happens at any threshold of any week. The continued validation of concern of justice arise anytime he thinks of leaving home and going to do both party-work and for instance ordinary stuff as taking out shillings at the Bank.

This is just enough. They continue to arrest, thief the freedoms and liberties of random citizens, but he is not allowed the same. The double Standard that was evident during the General Election is at standstill now after the ballot is cast and sworn-in 10th Parliament. If this does show how weak and fragile the current government is that they without question, without charges are detaining fellow citizens and the ones not fearing the restrictions coming from doing so. We can only a matter of time ask ourselves if the people can accept one of their own are harassed and tortured in this manner. That none of what think is ordinary is there, because the Security Organizations are there to detain and house arrest you at any point and have the Torture Van to pick you up to Nagalama Police Station in Mukono if you ever think of leaving. Peace

Opinion: Besigye arrested again! Can’t Mzee just create a ‘Besigye-Stay-Home-Act’ to legitimize the illegal detention of Besigye?

besigye-15-10-2016

Today just outside his gates in Kasangati, Wakiso, Citizen Dr. Kizza Besigye we’re arrested and taken to nearest police station, most likely his second home Nagalama Police Station in Mukono. Because citizen Besigye doesn’t deserve freedom or common-man liberty of movement, political affiliation or even congregate outside his compound. His home is a prison and if he walks or drives out he enters prison somewhere else.

This is the we’re getting close to that he has been detained as many times as Manchester United scored goal during 2015/2016 season and that is not funny either. But a sad fact of the state of affairs, under the President Museveni and his loyal subject IGP Kale Kayihura; who really just silences the opposition with powers of impunity and not rule of law.

A report about today:

“Part of efforts being made are to pursue case in court but also petition parliament to prevail on Police to act legally, observe the constitution and respect people’s rights. Renown constitutional lawyer Ladislaus Rwakafuzi and the parliament petition will be presented by Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze to be supported by Buhweju MP Francis Mwijukye” (Katonga Express, 15.10.2016).

I wonder if the Uganda Police and National Resistance Movement have to make a specific law considering people like Dr. Kizza Besiyge and the likes, because they soon to make reasons for the arrest and detaining before crime happens. Since he is arrested every time he moves and thinks of going outdoors and beyond his gates in Kasangati, which is impressive feat how that is a criminal offence to walk outside your home.

The Besigye-Stay-Home-Act as the Public Order Management Act cannot be effective in that manner and President Museveni should know that already, even his credibility must muster something powerful and existential to achieve at this point. The Police Force needs some guarding levels and more than the Colonial Laws as the Habitual Criminals (Preventative Detention) Act of 1951.  But what kind of charge can you put on somebody for walking out their gate?

If you can preventative arrest people for just walking out the gate, why doesn’t this happen to the VP, MP of NRM or of some family members of Yoweri Museveni Brahima-clan in Kiruhura and the married in through Minister of Foreign Affairs Sam K. Kuteesa. Because none of them get detained through walking passed their gates. None of their houses are under siege and none of the loyalist of the Movement is ever really taken. The once taken to court is because of fraud and thieving, but even as the Movement and Mzee has eaten the accounts of Crane Bank are silenced; that should sanctioned against the Bank of Uganda doesn’t have the flex to question the misbehaviour of Crane Bank and the owners of Crane who is either Museveni-clan or his Elite. Because if there we’re somebody else they would have blead in the streets of Nakawa.

Still, this thieving is not sanctioned, but a citizen, a leader in the opposition is illegal alien in his own nation, as he is only allowed to be inside his own compound and even has trouble going to court to answer his phony charges made by the Movements courts that is figment of imagination and set-up to silence him. Besigye-Stay-Home-Act is what President Musveni misses now!

After 30 years in Powers, he has to make a law that reasons for the detaining and house-arresting over time a citizen without reason, as the POMA and Habitual Criminals are not functioning anymore, the extent of these laws are not coving this. It cannot be Preventive Criminality when somebody walks from home, either a possession or public meeting for somebody when they travel from home to Political Headquarter or to the bank.

The Movement and President Museveni, this is not funny, it is not noble and not justice. You’re so far from freeing the nation and steady progress. The only thing steady is the actions of impunity and disgraceful behaviour of the Police towards innocent citizens. As the playing-field is not alike and the rights of people is diminishing in the light of ‘Old Man with the Hat’ who controls and use the government to punish the ones who doesn’t subscribe to his greedy vision. Peace.

Dr. Kizza Besigye released from Bond from Naggalama P.S. for “Unlawful Procession” in Kampala today (05.04.2016)

Besigye Release on Bond 05.04.2016 P2

“Just released from Naggalama Police Station. I was Charged with Unlawful Procession! I left home with one vehicle and never disembarked” – Dr. Kizza Besigye

I have to ask; Where is Wangegeya Police Station, Mr. Officer? I think you guys arrest and detained wrong person as Dr. Col. Kiiza Besigye must be an interesting character! The same UPF Police Officer also wrote “Prossession” when tthe right word is “Procession” as Dr. Kizza Besigye is quoted with as well.  Well, what else can you expect from a Police Officer who clervly just follows orders and does not think for himself. As the Naggalama Police Station is an ordinary place for Dr. Kizza Besigye to spend his time in.  Must be weird for the Officer to write a bond as he is not used to either. IT wasn’t done during the routinly activities after the Presidential Elections. So why now ,Mr. Officer? With the current and adherent stay from hours during day eating dinner there and then going back to rest in home. Something Besigye did many days during the late February, but does this look like a organized procession?

FDC Besigye 05.04.2016

No, it doesn’t look like a planned event! But the NRM can’t help themselves.

Kampala NRM Celebration 31.03.2016 P1

This is an organized one right? Why wasn’t any of them in detained? Well, wait there where more people praying at Watoto;then in the streets of Kampala at this moment of celebrations for the NRM in Kampala. My bad Mr. Officer. Forgive this is the almighty N-R-M. No-Rescue-Me. Not-Repeat-Me. Nonsense-Raised-Me. And so on.

Dr. Kizza Besigye can show up in Wandegeya Police Station close to Makerere University. I am surely he will struggle to pass without making an illegal pocession through Central Kampala. As was the issue before the grand Election Day, but the NRM have forgotten that piece of intelligence together with their ability to write correctly.

I rest my case. Peace. 

Besigye had planned to participate at the Prayers at the FDC HQ in Najjankumbi by the Calvary; As praying is a tool of ‘Evil’ for the NRM-Regime; Dr. Kizza Besigye detained before the prayer and taken from Kiira Road P.S. to Naggalama Police Station to be detained!

Besigye Kasangati 05.04.2016

Today the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) had yet another planned Tuesday Prayers at their headquarters all over the country. This is the continuation of the boycott that has been going on from the Political Party since the Announcement of the Result from the Electoral Commission and Eng. Dr. Badru Kiggundu. So today was the first day that Dr. Kizza Besigye has driven out of his home since he went to All Saints, when he was detained straight after Service.

Besigye 04.05.2016 P1

While at the FDC Headquarter the Police have sieged the building and discontinued the planned prayers. Journalist from the area has been whisked away as the Police do not want this to be reported in the spirit of the new Kampala Metropolitan Police chief Andrew Felix Kaweesi.

Besigye 04.05.2016 P2

FDC reported:

“Many are gathered at our HQ, waiting for Dr. Kizza Besigye to arrive. The police has stopped him from proceeding and journalists denied the right to do their work. Police is armed to the teeth, beating up people” (Forum for Democratic Change, 05.04.2016).

Besigye Car Towed Yusuf Lule Road 05.04.2016

FDC’s Presidential Candidate’s Dr. Besigye car was towed away by insecurity police. This is a photo taken by Besigye’s in the car .Now at Yusuf Lule road. Meanwhile the FDC prayer has been disrupted by the same Uganda police.

Najjankumbi 05.04.2016

Dr. Kizza Besigye while being towed:

“Scared regime!! We couldn’t be allowed to get to Fdc Hqs for prayers. Now being towed to… I don’t know where!”

As the day went ahead and the Prayer was stopped and the Police had stopped the FDC convoy at Kalerwe and they planned to drive over Mulago to Central Kampala and the FDC Headquarter. But the Police towed his car and detained Dr. Kizza Besigye at the Kiira Road Police Station.

Besigye Kiira Road P.S. 05.04.2016

MP-elect Francis Mwijuke statement:

“We were towed together with the president of the people Dr. Kizza Besigye and taken to Kiira rd police station. We were led to the DPCs office. Two minutes later we were asked to get out and board a police van. When we reached at the van UP 4860, only Dr. Was forced into the van and driven away. Meanwhile there was an van UP 4861 which police surrounded to confuse the journalists and the public. Later the journalists followed the second van and then we were release” (Francis Mwijuke, 05.04.2016).

FDC Najjakumbi 05.04.2016

Certain FDC Officials are now traversing to Kasangati, others plans to see at Naggalama Police Station where Dr. Kizza Besigye have been detained before. As the Uganda Police Force continues to display arrogance towards the opposition party and destroy their peaceful prayers. The final news is that Besigye is detained at Naggalama Police Station in Mukono.

FDC Besigye 05.04.2016

Kampala Police Spokesperson Onyango Said: “Besigye defied orders, charged at Wandegeya police station with participating in unlawful procession”.

Let me explain:

So for those who don’t know the coded langauge of the Uganda Police the people who turned up to finally see Dr. Kizza Besigye and followed him by their own will. Made a Procession that was not seeked for; as the Police Force need to award the Opposition Party and Opposition Officials for the planned activities that any other then NRM have to follow under the Public Order Management Act (POMA); who nicely been dubbed the Anti-Besigye-Act (ABA); so if Besigye to be allowed riding down to central Kampala and go to his office he has to file papers to allow his movement. If not the Police will through tear-gas, storm the Najjankumbi Headquarters of the FDC in the name of that draconian law!

Police 05.04.2016 Mukono

So as I expect and what we thought the Police would do when he entered out the home; Dr. Kizza Besigye would enter into pastures where he is well known in the Police Stations of Kiira and Naggalama, as the NRM-Regime keep him under surveillance and want to stop him from doing political work and drain his spirit. While he is strong keeps pushing the peaceful actions against the regime that uses tear-gas and preventative arrest of him and others to keep the opposition on leach. Peace.

Mzee is either in the darkness of the forest or walking in the banana-plantation; he surely have no plans to leave; that is the true #SteadyProgress

m7-1970

It’s hard for me to write this in all seriousness. Since I writing about an African President whom himself said this in 1986: “The problem of Africa in general and Uganda in particular is not the people but leaders who want to overstay in power” (Ross, 2011).  The President in particular is His Exellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the President of Uganda for 29 years and counting!

Mzee said this in 1980 while running as a presidential candidate:

“Using a government position to a mass wealth is high treason. If the UPM is not going to be supported because it denounces such methods of getting rich, let it be”.

This he said while campaigning in Bushenyi and Mbarara districts(Weekly Topic, August 27. 1980).

So Mzee have  had a few points back in the day and knew this was an issues. Now he deflects  them to the extreme, to a point where it nearly get’s boring. Still here is his recents comments on the matter of riches and staying in power.

This was what Mzee said in November 2015:

““I have my own job at home of keeping cattle. Why would I stay when I have been defeated in the elections? I am not power hungry but I have missions to accomplish. I can’t leave without finishing with them” (Kazibwe, 2015).

Well, he has promised to step-down before, doubt he means this for long or even if this utter words was sincere other than for a show. This was for show from Mzee because of the coming Papal visit in Uganda (all seriousness the visit happen around 2 weeks after this interview). Well, let me continue on what he has said over the new-years and his ordinary modus operandi. When the pope has left the country and he could do what he normally do!

e8807-votemuseveni

Mzee saisd this on 5th January 2016:

“I have been hearing people accusing me of sticking around; that I don’t want to leave government. Why would I want to stay in government?” (…)”First of all I am a very rich man. I have a lot of wealth and therefore it cannot be riches that I am seeking in government” (Waswa, 2016).

Well, you have in been in power since 1986. That is sticking around for a while in government and as executive power for nearly three decades. We know you are rich you have a giant farm in Ankole, you and your families own a dozen businesses, some hotels and even some transport businesses as well. You started earning big bucks on transport under the DRC war in the 90s, but that is a nearly forgotten chapter for you and your brother Salim Selah, right? Still you’re in government because you fear what will happen if you leave it. Especially when there is oil-money soon coming into the accounts of Uganda and you want that slice to. The minerals and wood from Kisangani will be small-fry a bogoya. Well, we know about that and as your businesses and family businesses can be lost if you leave government. Therefore you want to secure those, it is a valid argument to stick around in government for wealth as man men make their wealth that way, one of the reason why you went to the bush to eradicate corruption and embezzlement. Well, that chapter is also forgotten and loyal cronies is more and more important therefore we have NRM-Independent and NRM Flag-Bearers in the coming elections, this is new and the NRM-Independents are breach of inner-party law. We know it is okay as long as Mzee,says it’s okay; he even pays the fees for the NRM-Independents to the Electoral Commission. This is to gain their loyalty as well as the ones the members picked in the district and sub-county. That is beautiful right? So, that is the reason why people wonder why you stick around and what can you do now that you haven’t already done? Still, let’s continue to the 10th January 2016.

MuseveniQuote

Mzee said this on 10th January 2016:

“cannot leave power now because all he planted has started bearing fruits” (…)”Those who say, let him go, let him go, they need to know that this is not the right time. This old man who has saved the country, how do you want him to go? How can I go out of a banana plantation I have planted that has started bearing fruits?” (…)”We can’t be in the middle of a forest and want the old man to go. This is not right. We must concentrate on development, my time will come and I will go. I don’t fear going because I have where to go, but we must first see where we go” (…)”We can’t be in the middle of a forest and want the old man to go. This is not right. We must concentrate on development, my time will come and I will go. I don’t fear going because I have where to go, but we must first see where we go” (Rumanzi, 2016).

Now he is proclaiming that he has made a country into a banana-plantation, where it is finally bearing fruits. That means sweat bananas with good yields. That must be from the mustards seed he planted in 1986. Wait, this isn’t a mustard farm, but still the metaphor can be extended to the Banana farm. Yes, he has made the country into a Banana farm or should I say a banana republic. Now that all of that was daft, but the point is clear.

The economic state is getting dire in Uganda, the loans rate on the government budget is going up while the aid and donor funds goes down. While the oil-price lowers before the oil-monies are getting in. The sale of coffee is growing but it has not the yielded price on it neither is the sale of the tea. Like they are not producing enough sugar for consumption and have to import from Kenya.

Bank notes Uganda

IMF in July 2015 wrote in their report this: “Short-term benefits of the oil price decline have been less pronounced in Uganda than in other countries in the region. In the past nine months, petrol average pump prices have declined by 10 percent in domestic currency”.

He surely isn’t done by seeing all the campaign teams struggling with the villages roads his been building since 1986. Since FDC Campaign Convoy have been stuck in Rwenzori and in certain northern districts, while Mzee himself needed a military vehicle to be able to get to campaign rallies in Abletong. Well, the Banana-plantations don’t need a good road as long as the banana gets to market?

500px-Uganda_Regions_map

Or is it the growing amounts of districts, sub-counties and municipalities? Is that your proud work to make sure that that every corner of the country have a local council to control 1000 people and have loyal payment from you?  That seems like the final goal while going through your banana-plantation. In 1967 there was only 18 districts, by 1989 where already 34 districts and 150 counties. By my reckoning in late 2015 there are 111 districts and 167 counties. So the numbers has grown staggering amount of districts and steady rise of counties. Was this the big plan in 1986 make sure that there 3 times over district then when you came to power?

You might feel that you’re in the forest and not really in the mellow place of the banana-plantation since the situation economically, infrastructure, youth-employment, industrial-development, police-violence and so on. There are much darkness in the forest and not any sweat yields of the banana-plantation. The development that you have left is surely questionable; secondly the legacy you’re leaving behind is not the ones you wish you had. You could have been a man who led to real progress and stand for something new.  Instead you’re the same old tribe of African leaders who overstays in power and does let other people rule.

The economic state, together with the lower prices on coffee and oil should be worrying. Together with edged prices on imports as Uganda imports are higher than their exports. The weaker currency and higher inflation makes the trading barrier even higher. There are so many signs that the general election together with the laws that parliament passes gives more and more power to the Executive and his regime. Ever since Public Order Management Act there been more and more laws who gives the government more stronghold over the public instead of giving them freedoms and opportunity to evolve and think on their own. The laws that gives the government carte blanche to borrow money through the new Public Finance Management Act; one section of this law says this: “Amendment of Section 36: (5a) In addition to subsection (5), a loan raised by the Government as a temporary advance by the Bank of Uganda, which does not extend beyond a financial year shall not require to be approved by the Parliament” (P5, 2015, PFMA). That says how the government can initially use the Bank of Uganda as an ATM, was that the problem you had in the forest or the fruits your having yield on the banana-plantation?

NAADS Piggery Enterprise Ibanda

I know that you have no plan of stopping being in power, I am just wondering when you actual thought of leaving since you have been there as long as have lived. Something not many Presidents have done except your friend in Zimbabwe, and maybe aquatints like Paul Biya in Cameroon, and Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatoral Guinea. But hey, they are from francafrique countries so I only expect you smile at them when you arrive at African Union meetings in Addis Ababa. Since they know and you know that all the fellows who meet with decades ago are no longer there.

We know that what you said before new years are utter rubbish since you have promised before to step down and haven’t. That has happened before 2001 and before 2006. Even before you got the multi-party system back into place; Gen. Benon Biraaro said this early part of his campaign in 2015: “When we captured power in 1986, Mr Museveni promised to rule for only five years and after he will go and look after his cows, I never knew his cows would be Ugandans”.

Old Taxi Park

Surely, if his still is in the forest or in the banana-plantation or even with his cows in Ankole, it is for certain he is still the executive power and will do what he can to keep that in 18th February 2016 or make sure the counting is fixed to measure the right way. Mzee will make sure that the counting of the ballots from the Electoral Commission declares him the President, AGAIN! If not he has prepared the police with a bucket full billions of shillings for post-election violence. So he must have looked in the darkness of the forest and worried for the outcome. In the sense that he smells the people are not his anymore. They do not follow him blindly and let him guide them freely. The banana-plantation is not as peaceful as it once was; This means that Mzee is not directly entitled anymore, to get the fruits of the plantation without any questions, from the people who are working on it. Peace.

Kampala’s renegade Police shuts down Lukwago speech of awareness

Lukwago 30.11.15

Today I will talk about the Kampala Capital City Authoriy and Kampala Metropolitian Police… they doesn’t have it easy, because they have a painful history with a Mr. Erias Lukwago, he happen to be loved by the people. That kind of people is not the Police or the leaders of KCCA who is chosen by the NRM. Erias Lukwago is far from NRM and is a strong supporter and ally of Dr. Kizza Besigye and the FDC, even if he has been affiliated with Democratic Party (DP). Norbert Mao is now a part of Go-Forward Umbrella, so surely DP is not a strong unit. That is why that Erias Lukwago goes independent and the DP need a new candidate to run for the Mayor in Kampala. Let’s take a look what the Police done today in the Central Business District of Kampala. Take a look!

Erias Lukwago message this morning:

“There’s a Luganda adage that ”Bwekataligilya elibiika amasumba”; literary meaning that if a chicken survives the claws and talons of hawks or other predators, there are high prospects that it will lay golden eggs. Kindly be part of a memorable occasion today at Nakasero Market Park yard at 2:00pm as we unveil the golden egg (vision) for the transformation of Kampala. I strongly believe that it’s only a shared vision, rather than personal whims, that will transform Kampala into a modern capital city we all crave for. Hope to see you there”.

UPF bans the incumbent Lord Mayor of Kampala Erias Lukwago from having a 2nd Inaguraral rally in Nakasero claiming the venue is for small the rally and will disprut the trading at the Nakasero Market. It would also be inconvenient for the traffic passing by and should look for another venue to have the rally. Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango said: “We have been informed that he intends to hold a rally at Nakasero market but it is illegal and will not be permitted. The venue is not suitable because it is a market in the city centre that attracts many people, which would paralyze business,”He also said: “the youth to desist from participating in the unlawful rally saying those arrested will be taken to the court of law”.

DP Camp Kampala Erias Lukwago Support 30.11.15

Even if the Police suspend the rally at Nakasero Market Park Yard the Erias Lukwago went there anyway despite to block this rally. There were also plans of Mulwana Team to escort them and support Erias Lukwago during his rally there. Today was the day that Erias Lukwago was supposed to introduce his manifesto for the 2016 Mayoral Election.

I am sure that Erias Lukwago is struggling because he is now running independently, but has support of the Forum for Democratic Change as becoming Mayor of Kampala again.

Issa Mayoral Candidate

But the new Democratic Party Mayoral Candidate Issa Kikungwe launched his own campaign today as well, but that wasn’t stopped by the Police like Erias Lukwago rally, the Candidate Kikungwe held a rally in Kawempe.

Ragga Dee Daniel

While this has happen Daniel Kazibe known as Ragga Dee who has been voted to be the NRM Mayoral Candidate of Kampala has said this:

“am not pleased with how Bebe Cool has handled issues regarding the artist’s money from the President as some of the fellow artists on that project are still claiming for their shares. Have you accounted how much funds Bebe Cool spent for his wife’s maternity fees last week and he is currently in South Africa shooting a video? Bebe Cool should responsibly come out and account for the shares to his fellow artists because it’s officially confirmed that he received the funds from the president’s office”.

Bebe Cool Hummer

Bebe Cool retorted:

“I wonder why people always try to attack me, Ragga Dee said that I am greedy but the fact is, he is greedier than me. Let him not fool you that it’s him who got the Tubonge project, it’s me. I heard him saying that he took me to State House. I used to go to State House even when I was young and Museveni is like my uncle, so let him stop talking about what he doesn’t know, he may lose the elections”.

Ragge Dee wants to this if he wins the elections:

“I will first give musicians lessons on how to work together for a general cause and promote one love”.

Daniel Kazibe aka Ragga Dee held his first rally in town yesterday without making any fuzz or having any problems with the fuzz. There must be something behind that! Wait, yes it is, he is a NRM guy, and therefore he can as he pleases, while the others have to fight to the same. That is democracy right now in Uganda!

It seems okay for Mr Kikungwe who can hold his rally, because he is seen not as threat to the KCCA and NRM, or am I wrong? Or is it because there is now official not written law that it’s illegal to hold rallies in a Market in Kampala? Can the UPF and Kampala Metropolitan Police; please explain to a brother; why he is not really permitted? Can it be the most used law of 2015; no not the Tax-Evation laws! Nah it’s not cool enough! I am talking about  the POMA, the famous and most used law by IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura! Public Order Management Act, I am sure that used to stop Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago? Because he creates chaos for his popularity in stark contrast to the NRM-Candidate or other Opposition figures. Right? Yes, I am right!

Asuman Kiyingi

Even Asuman Kiyingi [of the NRM] the State Minister of Works said this during November about the Kampala Mayoral Elections:

“On this one I agree with Ragga Dee. You can’t do a wedding and then go for kwanjula. Or ask a class teacher to become a class prefect. How did we end up with a flag bearer for a position that we were not sure we needed. We should have spared our people the rancour and hussle of primaries if we planned a mayor elected from councillors. Just how far should we go to fix Erias Lukwago?”

For those who wonders why there is not an official endorsed Mayoral Candidate in Kampala from the FDC, that is because they has gone behind Erias Lukwago to show support for his candidature against the powerful NRM-Regime and also thanks for his loyalty towards Dr. Kizza Besigye which Lukwago has been behind since ‘Walk to Work’ riots in Kampala. So the sorry man in this tale is the Mayoral Candidate for FDC Miles Rwamiti Apuuli who will not be a man who you can vote for, since his candidacy has been pulled.

That means that the elections for Mayor will be Daniel Kazibe aka Ragga Dee (NRM), Erias Lukwago (Independent) and Issa Kikungwe (DP). The Police will be against Erias Lukwago which they have proven again, and again! And again, they hate that he stand against the Kampala Metropolitan Police and Kampala Capital City Authority, not to forget Jennifer Musisi thinks it easier to work without the annoying politicians, especially the likes of Lukwago who makes everything hard to put through, I think that is because he is one of them who wishes to have a loyal crony like Daniel Kazibe who can’t even hold his tongue and win a discussion with the numb-nuts of Bebe Cool, who dances like a fool on every stage for Mzee and his NRM. The money is good for them both while Issa and Erias will fight against the musician.

Backup History (recent) on Daniel Kazibe: 

For those of you have forgotten part of his past. Had in 2014 his own Mercedes Benz impounded by the URA (Uganda Revenue Authority), the musician had at that time forgotten to pay tax. Therefore until he could pay the missing funds of Shs. 1,5 Million to pay URA before he get his car back again. Also in 2014 the same Ragga Dee was reported to be part of the campaign for National ID cards and eating a great chunk of that fund, the fund that got missing remember? Well, Ragga Dee who had now eaten a big chunk by the fund for the National ID cards advertisement; which never happened… That is not the end of the eating money from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, he was after this supposed to eat more money from it for making a recording which would be used to mesmerized the late Gen. Aronda Nyakarima. How much the whole tale cost the Tax Payer, will hopefully be released or found out. 2014 was a busy year for Daniel Kazibe.

Now we see how the UPF, Kampala Metropolitan Police and Electoral Commission work for making the campaign for Erias Lukwago as hard as possible. They are trying to stop it and make it harder than for other candidates trying to become mayor in Kampala. So this will continue because we all know the NRM-Regime and their “Freedom loving” Police, who is not “impartial” or “working against” any opposition member or party in general during these elections. No! No! No! They are not doing that… They are just showing care for the dangers that a rally of an opposition candidate will have at the Central parts of Kampala and will disturb business district of the City. Something that is dangerous to do… Wonder if it would be stopped if it was Daniel having a campaign rally at the same place? I don’t think so. Peace.

(Few hours later: They (UPF) knew after all and the) Police clears Mbabazi Nakivubo rally (Youtube Clip)

Times is a waisting right? UPF has in the blink of an eye changed guards! They had it all in order, but wanted to make an issue and look more wise, but nah wait, now they look more unwise! Congratulation on the press release and reactions has been hillarious! It should not be so much fun to look at how the UPF and Gen. Kale Kayihura tries to make things hard for Hon. Amama Mbabazi and Dr. Kizza Besigye and all the other opposistion leaders in the country. Just look at and laugh. The Uganda Police Force loves to entertain with rubbish and doing it constantly while calling it policing. Because all of the madness the police of Uganda bring to table, not just a T-Bone but the whole GOAT roast. So there is always enough meat on the table; So we don’t need to discuss the tendernes of the meat, because there is so much of the meat! It is always hard to pick what talk about, because the Police leaves so much left on the plate. We all know that the police will make more fuzz until the election. They will use the POMA law as they please. The UPF will use that to destroy or disturb the opposition parties when they have campaigns.  This they will do with their Preventative Arrests, House-Arrest, Stopping the Convoys to campaigns, detain politicans and also use the Electoral Commission Road Map as a Pawn!  Peace!
