Mzee have finally wiped out the opposition as he promised after the announced victory!

Museveni Kenya Speech 2016

“I will wipe out the opposition completely in the next 5 years. NRM is going to be stronger” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni

Let be clear, right after announced victory from the Electoral Commission and Eng. Dr. Badru Kiggundu, President Museveni said that he would wipe out the opposition and he has done it with passion and certainly soon done it as his duty. In a way to make sure that the Multi-Party system in the Nation is a flop.

The opportunities and the silver coined framed opposition figures in the Forum for Democratic Change are joining forces in the Shadow Cabinet to gain some estimated figures from the coffers of Parliament and play the parliamentary pawns that Mzee needs this term.

Betty Amongi Jimmy Akena Statehouse 21.06.2016

While the Uganda People’s Congress are busy trading their soul with NRM, as they are getting two slots in the 81 size cabinet of 2016-2021. The rest of UPC under Olara Otunnu are distancing and in general might even create another branch, and party that becomes a new profile, since they don’t want to be part of the NRM and Obote’s son selling of inheritance to Mzee.

Uganda Federal Alliance have also sold their fortunes for a Cabinet position and is therefore silenced by the Mzee, as she the leader of the party want to serve him and also be a part of his established court.

The hardliners of FDC are either lingering in jail, detained, house-arrested or kidnapped by security forces as the rest of the party are playing hide-and-seek close to Yusuf Lule Road in Kampala. So the party of FDC is even into the half who wants to continue the defiance of Dr. Kizza Besigye, and the ones that are settling for the silver-coins with the lingering blood on it.

Ken Lukyamuzi

The Grand question is: where is the Conservative Party of Ken Lukayamuzi? They are not to be seen, JEEMA are they still out there? Justice Forum and their men who even have been besieged by the Police during the days of officiating Mzee; the smaller parties are totally silent or at a non-approach. Democratic Party and Norbert Mao have addressed concern and the initial connection with the shoot-out in Gulu, while that was not true and government made conspiracy, and with the newly dispatched Amama Mbabazi, the party should be stronger, though their lingering nothingness, proves that the ability that Mzee have had since leaving for his swearing in,

The Police Force monitoring and detaining, silencing and attacking the opposition, together with trading with weaker minded opposition have made the stalemate livable, as the mentor and ticking problem of Besigye, is going from court to court, and addressing charges after charges and even treason, as IGP Kayihura are paying criminals to be witnesses and uses all means, and even most brain-dead police officers to lie in court; like he did in Kasangati Court of late; when the justice had to listen to the testimony of the Police Officer who was a former colonel, but never been to the army. So the truth is that, as long as he doesn’t have a voice, the men are walking around unsure of how behave towards the oppressive and militarized government of National Resistance Movement.

Besigye Nakawa 18.05.2016

All of the Opposition parties are toothless right now, the Human Rights Organizations of Kampala are raided and nothing happens. People and activist are kidnapped, soldiers are being shot and killed in made up conspiracies, while colonels and sergeants are detained as well. The paranoia of the state combined with the militarized politics and police force are taken freedoms and taken all parts of the state. The Opposition is on life support… Who is out there to save it, as the big man Dr. Kizza Besigye is away and nobody else have the legitimacy or the charisma to fight the powers with peaceful means while Mzee uses every tactic in the book to destroy and conquer them. Something he has been successful with ever since election and the reaping results are happening now, as he 10th Parliament are soon in function and the government are soon departing into brown envelopes, as business is back to normal after a hectic year. Peace.

Deadline day for petition deliverance for the ones the opposition to counter the Electoral Commission final result the 20th February; Journalist and Turinawe arrested at Kasangati today; while Mwenda and Dr. Kigozi enters the Compound and FDC Officials not allowed in!

Supreme Court 01.03.2016 Waiting for Lawyers

Early in the morning today there was reported that Independent Magazine editor and owner Andrew Mwenda entered and was allowed to enter Dr. Kizza Besigye home and discuss with him. The high work ethic of Andrew Felix Kaweesi and DPC Kasangati of James Kawwyla is busy arresting and sending people away from the area and usually not letting people in. IGP Kale Kayihura must find some well spoken word of wisdom must come soon, as the journalist detained and the amount of FDC agents and mobilisers are piling up into the deadline. While CP Fred Enaga can’t keep up with actions from his peers, the Police Force is acting as a tormentor of the people and opposition; not preserving the peace of the people. As much as the army is still staying in the streets of Kampala and other places on deployment to secure that Regime lives on in a tense state and not in a peaceful harmony between government and its people.   

Another report is that the money-man during the elections that had a son running as a Western Youth MP Gen. Tukumunde was either hurt by a canister of tear-gas or a bullet; the demonstrations against the result of the Western Youth MP.  Even the Police and Army entered the venue of the 800 youths voting for their representative of their region.

While also journalist are sitting and waiting at Kololo to see the opposition delivers the petitions at Supreme Court. They are waiting for the lawyers of the opposition to come with the petitions.

Muntu 01.03.2016

On Facebook after visiting Dr. Kizza Besigye:

Today I visited Dr. Besigye at his home in Kasangati. I did this after reading his Facebook post where he said he felt like becoming a real terrorist. Seeing his dilemma, I understand this sentiment even though I do not agree with it. We held very fruitful discussions on the present and future of Uganda. Even though we disagree on how to promote democratic reform, I have no doubt that he is genuinely convinced that he is working for the good of our country” (…)”But as an old man I told Dr. Besigye that truth is never objective but subjective; it is plural and not singular. We will never resolve the truth of who won the last presidential election but we can begin a dialogue on how to build a better future for our country. I hope all sides to the Uganda political debate see the need to work together rather than to work against each other. Hate will not bring us deliverance but destruction” (…)”If both sides cannot accommodate each other through compromise, there will be no winners. And Uganda will lose. Besigye represents a large disgruntled voter segment. We cannot afford to dismiss their disenchantment. Museveni represents an even larger voter segment. We cannot ignore their views. The challenge is how to create a common ground” (Andrew Mwenda, 01.03.2016).

Mugisha Muntu says: “Police was suggesting to send in their own representative. That is the level of arrogance we are dealing with”.

FDC 01.03.2016 Leave Cars to meet Besigye

The FDC said this:

“We are now heading to Kasangati to meet Kizza Besigye and come up with a conclusive decision” (…)”We are operating under very hostile conditions. Our candidate has been arrested 8 times in 10 days” (NBS TV, 01.03.2016).

Continued House-Arrest:

“Our reporter Bahati Remmy in Kasangati says Police is still deployed outside Kizza Besigye’s home” (NBS TV Uganda, 01.03.2016).

As the media is following the Kasangati, the one journalist detained and taken cameras from yesterday Abubaker Muwonge, was supposed to get back his gear today; instead he will not get for some reason from the Police.

FDC not allowed to have a meeting with Besigye:

“Party officials allowed to meet with Besigye. Only if they leave their cars at this cross section” (Nduhukire, 01.03.0216).

As the NBS TV follows the situation at Kasangati and the FDC meeting at the place today; the NBS Journalist Remmy Bhati has been beaten up by the Police and manhandled by the police.

NBS 01.03.2016 Arrested Journalist Kasangati

NBS TV on it themselves:

“BREAKING: Our reporter Bahati Remmy arrested by police live on air in Kasangati” (NBS TV Uganda, 01.03.2016).

On the FDC that had to leave their cars and supposed to be allowed in, that changed by the minute as the Police has changed their minds.

Turinawe 01.03.2016 Kasangati

Ingrid Turinawe said this hours before press conference and the arrival at Kasangati:

All earlier efforts, engagements and attempts to have Dr. Besigye freed by police remain imposible. The deadline for presidential elections court petition is today. FDC NEC meets today at Najjanankumbi. We still wait for Dr. Besigye to attend this meeting. He is expected to give direction and his views about the matter. We still keep the hope and patience despite dictator provocation. In case police block him again from attending or arrests him again… The party will communicate to Ugandans the next course of action” (Turinawe, 01.03.2016).

Kasangati 01.03.2016 FDC Leaves Cars

On the FDC:

“HAPPENING: Mugisha Muntu and other FDC members blocked from accessing Kizza Besigye” (NBS TV Uganda, 01.03.2016).

Turinawe 01.03.2016 Kasangati P2

The FDC Report on the matter:

“This is the current situation at Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home. The NEC has been told to leave its cars on the junction to Dr. Besigye’s road to the home. Heavy police present that outnumbers everybody else” (Forum for Democratic Change, 01.03.2016).

Also happening the FDC Secretary for Mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe together with a journalist has been arrested and is driven away to a unknown destination. As NTV describes it: “Ingrid Turinawe and a journalist have been held and detained in this van here in Kasangati” (NTV Uganda, 01.03.2016).

As the event’s unravel on the gates of Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home and FDC Officials are not allowed to enter to finish the petition to have the ability to deliver it to the Supreme Court in time. While that is happening, Dr. Maggie Kigozi has arrived at Kasangati. Gen. Mugisha Muntu and the FDC official’s plea with the Police enter the compound, as Andrew Mwenda could enter without any fuzz. Do you also see the double standard of the loyalist of Museveni and the others?

From Parliament:

MP Odo Tayebwa: “I am not in the mood to attend this plenary session, Mugisha Muntu has been denied access to Dr. Kizza Besigye”. Also: “MP Odo Tayebwa asks for leave from parliament, saying he is not in the mood to attend the session because of what is happening in Kasangati”. Proves his manner to justice, props to Tayebwa!

Womans Situation Room Besigye 01.03.2016

While the FDC Officials was not allowed to enter his home, the Dr. Maggie Kigozi and the Woman’s Situation Room have been allowed to enter and discuss matters with Dr. Kizza Besigye, while the time is ticking to the end of deadline day. As this is a sending that has come to stall the time until the Supreme Court closes.

Hon. Ofwono Opondo are not for press freedom anymore:

“Media Outlets that are gonna be hacked by me are: New Vision, ChimpReports and Bukedde. HACKING in Progress. Thanks”, what pissed on his bonfire today?

While the actions and sieging of Kasangati continues. There was movement and people arriving at the Supreme Court. Here is the report:

Vex Kingo 01.03.2016 Supreme Court

“Vex Kingo ”Absolute Ambulera Govrnorment chairman as he claims has just arrived at Supreme Court Kololo to file his petitition.in brief he wants all recently concluded Presidential and Parliamentary Election be nullified because they were not carried out in accordance with eletral laws. VEX Kingo is known to be a political dramatist. But his arrived helped journalists break the boredom as the result of long day waiting for election petitioners”.

Yet more information about the Road-Blocks towards Kasangati:

“We are dealing with very unique and challenging times. A major route from Kiira-Matugga has been cut off. That means that many people are blocked and cut off to other destinations including Kasangati, a very sad state of affairs” (Forum for Democratic Change, 01.03.2016).

Amama Lawyer at Supreme Court 01.03.2016

After the time and closure of the Supreme Court the Amama Mbabazi legal team came. They came at 17.05 when the time for addressing the court with petition was original time was set for 17.00. So that the Supreme Court. Registrar says he’ll accept their petition after 17h. That is big-men of the court. The Lawyer Severino Twinobusingye was the one representing Amama Mbabazi and was the one who was able to deliver a petiton from the oppostion to counter the result of the election and final annoucement.

Petition 01.03.2016

From the FDC:

“We have failed to file an electoral petition today. We shall announce our next best steps on Wednesday 2nd March, 2016 at 11:00 EAT”.

There will come more as the story unravels. Here is what has happen this morning and the day is far from over and the Police and Government of Uganda. Will not let this one go, they do what they can to hold their hands over the opposition and with force at moment. Everything to stifle their chances to deliver the petitions while using unlawful methods as they have done since pre-election period. It is systematically from the Police and the Security Outfits in a display of arrogance and betrayal of freedom for the ballot or the FDC as civilized party during election time. This here is all nonsense and innocent journalist getting beating and arrested is just a manifestation of the militarized politics under President Museveni. Peace.  

Dr. Kizza Besigye taken from House-Arrest; AGAIN! Detained at Kiira Road P.S.; Planned to meet at FDC HQ for a National Executive Council meeting to discuss Court Petition; While Journalist detained in Kasangati to follow the situation; Police blames journalist for “Disseminating information” to the public!

Kizza Besigye 23.02.2016

As the House Arrest continues, Dr. Kizza Besigye has still limited access to the world. He had planned to meet fellow FDC officials. That he was not allowed to does his party work, still days after the Election Day.

Police 29.02.2016 Kasangati

Reported:

“Dr. Kizza Besigye arrested this afternoon outside his home as he attempted to go to Najjanankumbi for an FDC Management committee meeting which will be followed by the National Executive Committee meeting tomorrow”.

Just as before he was taken in a Police-van as he was trying to leave the home and will be detain somewhere as he was driving away from his home; the DPC of Kasangati James Kawalya is still following his orders.

As he went out of the home he got taken by the van and then detained at the Kiira Road Police Station. He has been there the whole day.

About the Meeting that Dr. Kizza Besigye was about to attend:

“Leaders in the Forum for Democratic Change party are meeting today to decide the next course of action as the deadline for challenging the outcome of the February 18 presidential election looms” (…)”The meeting convened by the FDC president Major General Mugisha Muntu at the party headquarters seeks to decide on whether the party’s option of court still holds water, a day to the deadline” (…)”Present at the meeting is FDC chairman Wasswa Biriggwa, Vice President Northern, Reagan Okumu, FDC Electoral Commission Chairman Dan Mugarura, Leader of Opposition Wafula Oguttu, FDC Treasurer Geoffrey Ekkanya, among others” (…)”FDC presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye was also expected to attend the meeting however, he was arrested again by men in Police uniform as he left his home in Kasangati for the meeting” (…)”There is heavy police presence at the party headquarters with regular and field force police officers deployed around the area” (The Capital Gang on 91.3 Capital FM, 29.02.2016).

What I have highlighted is the issue that the Police and the NRM-Regime cannot handle as they have too much to hide by the way they “won” the election. If they didn’t then they would let the FDC and their organization come with evidence to court without any issues together with their presidential candidate. It is obvious that Police is going against the FDC and that shows how the NRM are dealing with their “Knock-Out” win; they are proving by their actions alone. That they fear the petition that the opposition party could come with, also the results of the evidence brought to court. That is something to think about!

UGDebate2016 P3 Bwanika

Abed Bwanika had this to say:

“Today 29-Feb-2016 I am on my way to meet Kizza Besigye peacefully. Thereafter I await to meet National Resistance Movement – NRM Candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni having sent him my notice of intention to meet him. It shall take humility to realize a government of national unity.  For God and My Country” (Bwanika, 29.02.2016).

Mr. Bwanika will not be able to meet with Besigye at Kasangati as he has been detain the whole day at Kiira Road Police Station, and the basis for the meeting and the premise. The planned and sought of Unity between Besigye and Museveni; should be deleted plan as it is not something to go for. The only one winning on that is President Museveni and he does not deserve “Legitamacy” for his power and rule at this point.

NBS 29.02.2016 Kasangati

Also today as journalist from NBS TV arrived around the home in Kasangati and was yet again. This journalist was Elijah Turya and his camera man was taken away. Another reporter was also arrested not at Kasangati, but in Kampala near the State House in Nakasero as the reporter was filming the piglets dropped there earlier today. The reporter was CCTV Abubaker Muwonge. After the report the matters has gotten worse as the Police have asked to get his passwords for his phones to get the information on his phone. He has declined to deliver that request.

Clip from NBS TV:

“With Kizza Besigye under house arrest, it has become increasingly dangerous for journos who cover his stories. Some were recently arrested by the police for inexplicable reasons” (NBS TV Uganda, 28.02.2016).

One Journalist talk about his experience at the Kasangati Police Station:

“Am back from Kasangati police cells with no charges but accused of disseminating information to the public especially covering Besigye. Among other journalists detained but released together were Lubowa Dean Ssaava Nbs Tv, Elijja Turyagumanawe Nbs Tv, Mukose Arnold Anthony Salt Media, Ssendegeya Mohammed CBS and other 3 BBS Tv reporters. This was done by police to smoothly sneak out and arrest Besigye to un known place without being followed by journalists. We appeal to police to professionally work with us because we are not enemies with security agencies and we want one another” (Arnold Anthony Mukose, 29.02.2016).

I hope I disseminating information to the public because I do not want to sound like Adrew Mwenda or Ofwono Opondo as they are the ones are allowed to write whatever and say whatever with getting the police and being detained at the moment. The journalists and the opposition officials are still under hot-water and the police acting “wokoloso”.

The actions towards Dr. Kizza Besigye are as foolish as it has been since he has been day-in and day-out. Still the issues are there and the warrant or charges for the man has not come. So the issue is that the Police and government are violating his freedom of expression and also political life. As he is the man who they fear the most! While now the Police are tired of the expression of the Press as they attacks the journalists and detain them for doing the job, they are alerting the world about the situation of Dr. Kizza Besigye. Something that should not give them a felony! Peace.
