NRM Primaries 2020: What have we learned from the polls…(?)

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) held their Primary Elections today on the 4th September 2020. Some polls have been postponed because of the election violence between the candidates in the constituencies. That is not new, but it is between family members of the President and his nearest in-laws. Who are fighting for the next generation, who wants their next of kin in office.

What we can see as the Primaries have been going on. They are letting candidates be elected with polls in lines. There is no social distancing, masks or any other efforts of Coronavirus or COVID-19 Guidelines.

The Presidential Directives on gatherings, distancing and masks are down the drain. It isn’t important at all. The candidates and the NRM operatives are not following these. Neither, is the state sanctioning the party. They are even seeing violence between the candidates and trying to investigate after the melee. That is why there is reported of 4 deaths and more injured in various of districts.

The ones who voted for the Age Limit and OTT Taxes have in many places been hit and lost their seat. The incumbents MPs who did this and the Ministers have lost seats. Their choices in office has cost them. The electorate is remembering that and sending these folks out of office.

If NRM thinks this show their greatness, their pan-African and anti sectarian attitude. The NRM shows the opposite here. It shows their greed, their use of all methods to win and their lack of respect of the electorate. They are willing to use them and cheat to get ahead.

Not that any of this is new. The NRM has filled with this in the past. The same happens every single time. The new is the standing in line and not following COVID-19 Guidelines. The Police isn’t interfering or contributing to the violence. That is something it would have done, if this was done by any opposition or dissidents of the ruling regime. They would have shut-down the exercise and silenced it quickly with tear-gas, arrests and live-bullets.

What we are seeing is that some of the old heads are taken out. Also, that the NRM is ushering in their next generation. As the kin of the leaders are introduced like in the Kampala Central MP race, Cedric Babu has become the NRM Flagbearer to compete in that race. Just like Kuteesa¨s daughter and Museveni¨s son too. There are enough issues ahead, but shows the signs of a pattern here.

There will be more, as the postponement of some primaries will be returned. The deals have to either made behind closed doors or not. Just like reports of Beti Kamya paid of Singh Katangole 550m UGX for securing the Rubaga North. Wouldn’t be shocked if there was more deals like this behind closed doors. Where the documentation wasn’t out in the open.

That is also a very vital part of these elections. It is about ensuring your time to eat. So, that you have your slot, your seat and your money-bag from 2021. That is why its such a high reward for the risk of running in these elections.

The NRM Primaries are filled with irregularities, violence and use of force. They are always like that. That is why people are dying so some folks can secure power.

The NRM have in their slogan the word “Unity”. However, these elections are unifying, but showing a sign, which they shouldn’t be proud of. This is not the fault of the NRM Electoral Commission, but a party culture that been running rampant for years. That is the commercialization of the politics, the cost of operation and the price of losing. This is why the NRM is operating like this and with the risks of self-destruction at places too.

As they flaunts guidelines, social distancing and doesn’t safeguard the voting public. While holding rallies, polls and political meetings in the middle of global pandemic. Surely, the results of this will be more spread of COVID-19 and the state will pay that price.

What was the main lesson of today: The NRM Primaries is a circus, just another one compared to the ones in 2015. Peace.

Opinion: Mzee trying to be cute with his responses…. [on retirement]

How long do you think I am going to go on slaving for you? I am now 57 and I have been working for more than 30 years. Of course I will retire” Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (New Vision, 08.11.2001).

We know its elections on the horizon, when someone response willy-nilly and trying to enlighten. However, when you have been in the public sphere for decades and ruled the republic since 1986. There are certain aspects, which you cannot defend that easily anymore. Especially, the ones that counters your own statements in the past.

That President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni isn’t retiring is self-serving at its best. He said Africa’s Problem was that people lingered in power. Seeing how he has done himself. By still being in office in 2020 and planning for another term. Proves that he is a problem himself. That is why it’s cute that he defends this today.

New Vision reported in 2001: “PRESIDENT MUSEVENI has made it categorically clear in a London interview that this is his last term in office. On several occasions including on the Capital Gang, Museveni has indicated that he will respect the constitution and retire. However his critics have persisted in spreading the rumour that he intends to amend the constitution to stand for a third term” (New Vision – ‘Museveni to retire’ 09.11.2001).

Today, however, in a another response to online comments. The President who has lingered in power since 1986. Wrote this: “Museveni should retire? There is no problem with Museveni retiring” (Museveni, 03.09.2020).

That is from the same man, that said he didn’t want too… to rule for more than two terms, as it was in 1995 Constitution. However, he abolished the two terms to rule for a third. That is why he abolished the Age Limit too. So, that he wasn’t to old to stand in 2021. This man did a coup in 1986. Didn’t have elections before 1996 and not having multi-party elections in 2006 after a two referendums.

It is a problem that Museveni isn’t retiring because he spread falsehoods and does bad self-defence that only works on the naive of folks. The ones who doesn’t know.

A man like Museveni like too look good, but these sort of responses only undermines his own messages. He has promised to retire before and now he defends the reasons for overstaying. It is like he thinks his special. The ones claiming in the end of the 1990s and early 2000s who said he would be a President for Life. Was damn right and is right to this day. Because, there is no proof that his leaving… Peace.

Magyezi MP sealed his own fate…

To a lackey no man can be great, for a lackey has his own conception of greatness.” – Leo Tolstoy

I cannot feel sorry for a man who is willingly and defending a private motion to change a constitution to create a President for life. In that regard, Raphael Magyezi have been in parliament for Igara West County since 2011. So, when this second term ends in 2021 he got ten years as a lawmaker and representative for National Resistance Movement (NRM).

Magyezi is a lackey, a proud one too. Who cannot understand why people hate him. He has made his bed and now he got to sleep in it. When you launch motions like the abolishment of Age Limit and preaches to the choir that the President needs more time. You are selling your soul for that cause.

Magyezi isn’t a victim, but a man feeling the consequences of his actions. That he did this and stood high is now costing. The MP for two terms has become synonymous with life presidency. That he wrote the motion and got it voted in.

The man can ask for sympathy and well wishes, but his a lackey. A loyal lackey who have delivered everything the President and his associates wants. If it was life presidency: check. If the president wants more gerrymandering: check.

The man always delivers to the needs of the Movement and the President.

Magyezi is tainted by his own actions. His bleeding yellow and cannot run away from it. Agent Yellow will flee the parliament and not run for a third term. The locals have thrown stones at him after the abolishment of age limit and he knows this was a unpopular move. However, he did it for selfish reasons to gain momentum with the President.

He has pulled out of the race for 2021. However, don’t be shocked if he get appointed to the cabinet or even a state agency. This man is done with politics. Just a man who knows his yellow heart isn’t appreciated.

Raphael did something great for one man, but he did not serve the whole republic. The MP did that for selfish reasons and it has backfired. The State House loves the man and NRM CEC vouches for him. However, in the streets he cannot walk in peace.

Magyezi MP has done this all to himself. This is self-inflicted and that why its hard to find mercy for the man. It is different if he had stumbled or fallen by mere unluck. However, the man did it all on its own and stood up like a champion for it.

In the end his just a lackey. Magyezi and the abolishment of article 102(b) is who he are. He stood on the pedestal and preached sermons for this matter. That is why he has to find solace on his own.

Magyezi MP is wounded, but he will not go away. He will be appointed or get a hack-job elsewhere. As the throne appreciate the loyalty and will offer some tokens for favours done in past. Peace.

Museveni: How many times can you sell the same dream?

These things appear to be happening quick. Todays launch of his candidacy as President and Chairman of the National Resistance Movement (NRM). It is just all protocol and more of the same. It is neither funny nor insightful. Just another day in the Republic.

That Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is a Presidential Candidate was written in stone. It was in the hieroglyphics and in the ancient scrolls long before we were born. This is a way of life and how it treats us.

The removal of both term limits and age limits has all been in favour of one man. The man who proudly put these mechanisms in the new Constitution but deleted it when it didn’t fit him anymore. He didn’t change the law for the betterment of the Republic, but for his own selfish gain.

We can act like today is special, that the announcement is shocking. Breaking news. Read all about it. Well, we knew this was happening. Only the blindfolded, the ones with naïve thought someone else would pass the throne. That would be a miracle and a sensation. This would have sparked amusing tones and wonders. Because, it would not concur with the legends of ancient times.

This has been the case since the takeover of Kampala, 26th January 1986. Since then it has been all Museveni. He has ruled supreme. Been the Don and the Kingpin. The man in-charge and the only man with a vision. The one who is only fit to rule, and the rest must beg for mercy. That is what it is.

That’s why today isn’t special. His been selling the same story since that day. The day of fundamental change, the correct line and all of that. It has been his mustard seed of hope, which has turned into despair. We can act like everything is cool, but the man who will drop a manifesto for his 8th Term. Will most likely promise similar things of the past. The same sort of promises and possibly new lingo, but still the same tools from the shed.

It is a revised 10-point programme. The same sort of pledges and promises of a dream never succeeded. Because, he never intended to put the work in or deliver any of those. Just by mere luck that donors paid the duties and costs for a while. To keep the charade going.

Now, we are in 2020. In a time where his preparing for 2021. Alas his legacy is distorted, as people are arrested for poems, Facebook posts and jokes. There is no bottom, only an endless pit of suffering for the ones who oppose this man. Sooner or later the law catches up with you and give you a phony charge. A charge that you will keep and will haunt you.

So, will you believe in the man that has given out promises all his career and all his life? Only to determine or not even prioritize them. A man who has decided his own reign counters all other obligations of the state. Everyone must be jolly that he rules, and that his words are divine.

Today, was all ready prepared. Everything was aligned with it, the stars, the moons and the nsenene. Everyone was ready for this. It was inevitable. This wasn’t a journey; it was a road already taken. We have been here before and we just repeating the same thing over, and over again. Peace.

Opinion: Museveni, running for his eight term… [1986-2026]

Well, the scholars will say its his 6th Term, which I defiantly says “no” too. That is not true. They are currently saying his on his fifth term. That he was elected in 2016 for his 5th. However, if you do that, then your taking away his first 10 years in power. You are initially deleting the years between 1986 to 1996 and that is not fair. That is unjustified behaviour and rewriting history. The Republic of Uganda doesn’t deserve that.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is currently in his Seventh Term. You can calculate the 5 times and see that I am onto something. That the man who has run the Republic are in his 34 years in power and by 2021 is at his 35th. By the end of the next term he will be close to 40 years. Which by dividing 40 by 5 turns into 8. It is every simple Math.

I know, I will read in the big-media houses like BBC, AP News and others where it will say that his going for his 6th Term. These fellas who write that doesn’t care that he went a decade in power without any elections. That he suspended it and didn’t want to hold any. No, they are just making click-bait and not holding the President accountable. He should be counted for the first years of his presidency. Even if his achievements from those years are long forgotten and his killing of enemies those years. Are also long time buried and dead.

Never the less. Let me just reissue this short time. So, that everyone understands my equation and how I get to 8th Term for Museveni. This here should be the gist, but I am sad to say. The international media will say its 6th because they don’t know better.

Short Timeline:

1986-1991 First Term by seizing power/coup d’etat,

1991-1996 Second Term by suspending elections.

1996-2001 Third Term by First Election after the coup d’etat.

2001-2006 Fourth Term, Second Election. Abolishing Presidential Term Limits.

2006-2011 Fifth Term, Third Election – First Multi-Party Elections since the Coup d’etat.

2011-2016 Sixth Term – Fourth Election.

2016-2021 Seventh Term – Fifth Election  -Abolishing Presidential Age Limits.

2021-2026 Eight Term –Sixth Election

This is just my gist of it and how easily it can be calculated. Something, I find important, because all years should count. Not only the timeline from the election in 1996 until now. Than the same media houses should say he has ruled for 24 years, instead of 34. Why?

They are not counting it in the sense of terms, when they are accepting not to count the 10 years of suspended elections and coup d’etat. If your straight about, be straight forward and not glean in the middle.

Take the whole account, the whole time served and not just from the first election. That is just fair. This President has rigged elections and will rig the upcoming one in 2021 too. It is just a matter of levels and to what extent. Also, what sort of play he wants to do. He decides. His legacy is already tarnished and this election will not make it better.

His the soon, eight term president. Remember that. It is insane, but still true. Peace.

Opinion: The NRM Rebel MPs bowed to their King

I met our NRM Members of Parliament who have previously opposed certain party positions, hence being named “rebel MPs”. They called on me at State House Entebbe to seek the party’s forgiveness. Subsequently, I made their case before the party’s Central Executive Committee yesterday which resolved that for the party’s cohesion and discipline, we interact further and guide these MPs” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 17.07.2020).

Today, at the State House, there was a meeting of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Members of Parliament (MP) who have dared to challenge the President and his legislation. These are the ones who voted against the abolishment of the Age Limit and so fourth. These MPs actually dared to question the President and not following the correct line.

The MPs in question was today summoned to the State House to be informed on how to move forward. In an exercise to show loyalty and also settle supposed grievances. The President simmer it down really quick when he writes that they will guided further and follow Party discipline. That is why these fellows should not dare to undermine the President again. They should just vote as they are told and not think.

That is why rebellion in the NRM is so endearing. Such a assumption that these are rebels. They stood up for one cause and now they have to kiss the ring to get the goods again. As long as they show loyalty and blind discipline to the party, which means loyal to the President. Not question his actions, his legislation or his policies. Only follow the President and his steering committee the NRM CEC.

The President can act like this was a day filled with hardliners, questionable MPs who didn’t know better and needed more education. That these MPs are indecent and disingenuous. However, these are already yellow fellows. The only thing they have done is to vote against a President for Life. A person they had no trouble bowing their knees for and asking for forgive. They were asking for mercy. To ensure they could get another term in office and get the positive vibes ahead of elections.

This is all political games. The NRM Rebels wasn’t true revolutionaries. These people wasn’t defiant in the sense of person, just one simple cause. They stood up and said “nay”, when others said “yay”. Yes, they did the good thing at that vote, but they didn’t work to directly undermine the ruler or his associates. They were all along part of the party, following procedures and being their MPs.

They were maybe not invited to the State House for NRM Caucus Meeting, losing out of some envelopes. However, they are neither true opposition or someone who defiantly standing against the President. If they were and not willingly to work with the Self-Styled President for Life. They wouldn’t show up and bend over for the old man.

He also said:

Our people are waking up. It explains why we have bumper production of milk, sugar, bananas, etc. Leaders must work for the prosperity of their people. That’s the most important thing” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 17.07.2020).

It is really special that he says leaders have to work for prosperity. When he has prospered, while his citizens haven’t done so. That they have to do that now that its really rich in way. Promise wealth, but not delivering it. That is the final message for the rebels. The ones who stood against him on one cause. A cause that was for selfish reasons for one old man with a hat. The one man with a hat, who they shall not rebel against again. That’s why his showing them mercy now. As long as they are following his orders. Peace.

Opinion: [Don’t be shocked] NRM MPs always eats!

We are living in 2020 and the abolishment of Age Limit still haunts the chambers of Parliament. As the payouts for it is coming to the ones who favoured the Self-Styled President for Life. That all happen a while ago, but the 317 MPs is getting all the love.

Now there is report of a more millions of shillings coming their way. As there was a special delivery of 40 million shillings each. The money was already late and delayed. There is also claims this is for hardship of voting for the motion to praise the “high above”. No matter what, their representation is clearly a pyramid scheme. Where the drips of money comes down to them, when they favour the one on top of the pyramid. After that they are selling his empty dreams to public and hoping no one is understanding the prolonged scheme.

In this regard, they are promised even more, just like they we’re promised more favours too during the Age Limit saga. They were planned instalments for favourable voting. They are anticipated to get another 60 million. When they vote against the NSSF Act. Because, that is how you run a state. Bribing MPs to vote on your whim. So, that they have extra funds to campaign and pay-off old debts. That’s what you do.

These MPs have already allowances, fees and perks to the skies. They are already eating like crazy. This here is just eating of the plate of the public. While the state is taking more loans from World Bank and IMF. They are eating on the borrowed money and hoping this doesn’t hurt the state down the line.

These NRM MPs are just the epitome of greed. They are selling their souls for very little. This is short term gains and will backfire eventually. Onto the up-coming elections, these MPs will use any opportunity to get some money. Because, suddenly they need to fix local schools in their constituencies. Suddenly, they will need to buy rice, soap and small tokens to their constituents. Even pay courtesy to the local radio for air-time. Maybe, even pay some random designer to make posters and gear. That’s what they do.

So, always know. The NRM MPs always eats, don’t be shocked. That’s what they do. They eat and figures out ways to trick the system in their favour. Especially, doing the will of the State House and getting paid for it. That’s why the big-man is stressed, he always have to pay them extra to “get thy will done” as it is in Rwaiktura farm and on Nile Avenue. Peace.

Opinion: The 10th Parliament should be consistent on advanced age

The parliament’s appointments committee has rejected the re-appointment of Dr Johnson Byabashaija as the commissioner-general of the Uganda Prisons Service on the basis of old age. The same committee also rejected the appointment of James Mwanje as his deputy on the same grounds. Both Byabashaija and Mwanje appeared before the committee chaired by the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga today for vetting. But sources from the closed-door meeting rejected their appointment on grounds that the two, have already clocked 60, the mandatory retirement age of public servants” (URN – ‘Parliament rejects Byabashaija reappointment as prisons boss’ 06.04.2020).

It is not long ago, when the 10th Parliament pushed the agenda of not having age as an issue for the Presidency. The Abolishment of Age Limit within the 1995 Constitution. Therefore, opening for the current President to run in the 2021 General Election. This is well known and isn’t just mere fiction.

So, the 10th Parliament, the Members of Parliament, the Speaker of the Parliament Rebecca Kadaga who worked directly with the President, State House and the National Resistance Movement Caucus. Knows this, so this petty politics of blocking Byabashaijja is foolish now.

Not because it isn’t healthy to change leadership, to let people retire of old age. However, the Cabinet of the President is filled with people in the age of pensioners in the Civil Service. The President has associates and Senior Presidential Advisors whose as old as Johnson and even older.

Therefore, the consistency isn’t real. The old age isn’t a problem for the PRESIDENT. Than, another leader of an institution should also be able to die in office. It shouldn’t just be for one brother, but all brothers. One for all, all for one. That is how it should be.

You can act a fool, try to act sincere and righteous here. It might be true that Johnson isn’t fit because of his age. However, the same questions should be asked about the Presidency too. Because, if your age is a problem to run prisons, what about the whole Republic?

Your counterpoint the agenda of the abolishment of the Article 102(b) which the 10th Parliament worked to so hard to dismiss. The whole NRM and the President should see this. This is really stupid and foolish. This is dumber and dumber. Stupid is what stupid does. Peace.

Opinion: The ‘NRM Rebel MPs’ proves the democratic deficiencies within the party

When Secretary General of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Justine Kasule Lumumba barred 30 Members of Parliament for the Party to be delegates at the NRM Delegates Conference on the 25th January 2020 at Mandala Stadium (Namboole). Because, these 30 MPs voted against the abolishment of the Age Limit in defiance of the President, the Party Chairman and Supreme Leader. Therefore, SG Lumumba and the President have directed them not to come.

It is funny that a party made out a rebellion is sanctions its own rebels. I always find that endearing of the NRM. That the ones who should understand and support this behaviour. Since that is how the party got made to begin with.

What we are seeing is a President, his party and his secretariat not accepting other things than the party line. Everyone is supposed to follow the guidance and the beliefs of the President. Everything else is out of question. In addition, if you dare to go against it, there will be sanctions, ramifications and consequences.

So today this news broke out: “Oscar John Kihika, the Director Legal Services NRM Party has said the 30 Party MPs who opposed the lifting of the Presidential age limit have a right to attend the Party’s Conference as per Article 11(2) (i) of the NRM Party Constitution” (91.2 Crooze FM, 15.01.2020).

That is why, the NRM own constitution doesn’t ban them, but the President and SG wants to do it. They might show up then, but don’t expect celebrations or huge relief. These MPs might get into trouble by defying that too. These people might just end up like Muhammed Nsereko, NRM leaning Independent, which will vote in accordance with the party, but as “independents”.

What we are seeing is singling out the ones who doesn’t following the program and the regime of Museveni. The ones inside his own camp whose daring to oppose him and his self-styled President for Life. Which is his memo and life work. They are defying that and because of that. The President are initially saying they have “no say” and “nothing to offer” in his party.

If they did, they would come with open arms, discuss why did what they did and talked it out. Instead his banning them and closing the door shut. No way to return, no mercy, no justification. Just, you didn’t do as your told. Therefore, now you got to suffer, outside alone and not allowed to play us friends inside. Real kindergarten stuff, not a grown up party with proper measures and protocol.

It is so endearing, the NRM Rebels, but the party doesn’t think so, apparently. For them, they are nuances and a reminder, that not everyone follows one man blindly, but that they can on their own. Peace.

Opinion: Museveni’s endearing view on “NRM Rebels”

The rebel without an cause, has an issue with comrades or the fellow Yellow MPs in Parliament, who suddenly rebel against him. That is so endearing. It is so sweet, that he struggles and beats on the NRM Rebel MPs. It is like a beautiful fan-fiction. That he even remind that the Constitutional Court got the case changed by the Supreme Court on the interpreted article of 83 out of the Constitution.

The President is really rich in this manner. Museveni thinks his smart, but he isn’t that clever. Since, there are no place where the law says a NRM MP has to vote with the party. Only a certain quorum and rules for how the MPs can vote. If it is by voice or secret voting. There are stipulations for that, but not statutes nor articles, saying that you have to follow party line and be loyal to whatever cause or law the NRM see fit. That is not put in any law nor code, as such is foolish at best.

That is why yesterdays defence for getting people registered to vote is a weird text at best. I am only discussing the NRM rebellion and why he has a hissy-fit. Because, the President is only fool and nothing else in this matter.

President statement yesterday:

In our own Parliament we have had that problem of the “Rebel MPs”, elected as NRM but conduct themselves like they are not NRM. The Constitutional Court made a mistake because when we asked them to interprete Article 83 that we deliberately put in the Constitution to solve the problem of the 1960s, they interpreted it in such a manner that the MP can do what they want. That the MPs do not have to get permission from those who elected them to do what they are supposed to do. It is a very dangerous disconnection, that of non-accountability” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘PRESIDENT URGES UGANDANS TO REGISTER FOR 2020/21 GENERAL ELECTIONS’ 19.12.2019).

Article 83 of the 1995 Constitution:

83. Tenure of office of members of Parliament.

(1) A member of Parliament shall vacate his or her seat in Parliament—

(g) if that person leaves the political party for which he or she stood as a candidate for election to Parliament to join another party or to remain in Parliament as an independent member;

(Constitution, 1995).

Supreme Court judgement of 2015:

The continued stay in Parliament of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th respondents as Members of Parliament after their expulsion from the NRM Party on whose ticket they were elected is contrary to and inconsistent with Articles 1(1), 2(1), 2(4), 29(1)(e), 69(1), 72(4), 78(1)(a), and 79(3) of the Constitution” (…) “To conclude on this ground, we are of the view that the majority of Justices in the Constitutional Court erred when they interpreted Article 83(1)(g) to mean that members of Parliament who are expelled from their political parties have to vacate their seats in Parliament by virtue of that Article. It was, therefore, wrong for the Constitutional Court to order the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th appellants to vacate their seats in Parliament on that ground. Accordingly ground 4 must succeed” (Supreme Court – Constitutional Appeal No. 01 of 2015, October 2015).

So we have seen the train of thought. That the President has set and fixed a narrative. He has to speak in third person, even as they are supposed to follow him and he uses the NRM as a prefix for that. That is why if a NRM MP vote with the opposition, they are wrong, even if it might be in the interest of the constituents.

He has a problem, that the Constitutional Court interpreted the article wrong. That he cannot expel an MP and get a by-election. This would be a proper tool to ensure the right loyal cadres would be harness and he wouldn’t have to pay them to vote his way. That is why his mad at the Courts, though if he remembered correctly, the Constitutional Court was in-favour of the President, but the Supreme Court validated the rebels.

The expelled MPs didn’t leave, but was forced to go by no action of their own. Except doing something to get expelled. If that was acting like a punk at Kyankwanzi or voting against the interest of the State House. The President wants the magical wand to either have pro-NRM, super-loyalists, who follow him blindly and who doesn’t think.

The rebels are maybe wrong in the eyes of the President. But they are allowed and free to vote, write statements or acting accordingly to their own conscience. They are not children, who need parental advice and guidance to act rightfully within the August House. That is why Museveni has a problem, as the paternal godfather of the Republic.

This is really endearing of the President. As he thinks this is wise to say, as he cannot even pick the right court to blast. The Constitutional Court did a wrong, but rebels are not aliens, which the Court Judgement of the Supreme Court states.

If Museveni really believes his still a freedom fighter, how come he has an issue, that his own MPs has the liberty to accordingly to their own conscience?

Enough bullshit. Peace.
