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.

DP Statement on current affairs Omoro Election, Kifeesi Police, Parliament Amendments and Police Reshuffle (23.08.2016)

DP 23.08.2016

Kampala August 23, 2016– The Elections for the Omoro District Woman MP will be held next week Monday 29th August 2016. We wish to retaliate that our Candidate Pamella Grace Lanyero is still a front runner in the race. We have finalized all efforts to protect the vote and this week we shall round up the campaigns with three Main Rallies. We shall with effect from tomorrow send our teams led by Members of Parliament; DP Whip Hon Ssewungu Joseph Gonzaga and the Women President Florence Namayanja. The Party President Norbert Mao will be the overall Field Commander. We have mapped the Constituency to the effect that the DP District Leaderships are to be deployed in respective sub-counties. This therefore puts a straight forward warning to all those with ill intensions of pandering in malpractices. The Kifeesi teams, crime preventers and police should therefore limit themselves only to the constitutional provisions pursuant to Electoral laws. We wish to participate in a free and fair process and we shall not be liable for any repercussions pursuant to contradicting the process.

Constitution Amendment Bill 2016

We are also concerned about the proposal, which is part of several amendments proposed in the Constitution Amendment Bill 2016 and is spearheaded by the Nakifuma County MP to provide for an open term of office for Commissioners under the Electoral Commission. The Bill seeking to extend the term of office of the Commissioners from the current ten-year non-renewable term to an open in a guise to allow for the Commission to retain more experienced individuals to run it is a blunder. This move by all means serves interests of Government and the President in particular. The appointment and permanent retention in such a move is ploy of recycled inefficiency and reward for stealing a vote at a period when no one has trust in the Commission as the President’s employees. This is evidenced in rewarding Eng. Badru Kiggundu in his new appointment as in-charge of Karuma and Isimba Power Dams Construction for the job well done in the EC. We are aware that this is a pilot plot to pave way for Life Presidency and we ask the President and his team to put their hands off the destiny of Uganda.

Police Public Relations Office Reshuffle
The country received the news of the reshuffle of the former Police PRO Fred Enanga. It is never astonishing that the Police Spokesperson is reshuffled because we have seen many come and go. What is startling is how a one Fred Enanga is replaced by the cantankerous Andrew Felix Kaweesi. The move saves Fred Enanga from living a life with his foot perpetually in his mouth. The Party is convinced that this reshuffle at such a time is uncalled for, diversionary and a political move from the IGP to cover up his recent mess in the Police but worse still; the organized mob he aided to attack the Courts of Judicature. We wish to stand clearly and state that the appointment of Kaweesi as the Police image, whether in interim or utilitarian capacity is not welcome at all. The personality of the Spokesperson brings out the entire image of the institution and that cannot be Kaweesi. We have a track-record of him from the days when he was in charge of the Police training school in Masindi. All Police officers who were passed out during his time have messed up the institution and haven’t acted any different from Aron Baguma, Arinaitwe Bwana among others. These are the fruits of Kaweesi!

When he was appointed Kampala Metropolitan Zonal Police Commander, his rough, inhuman and deadly actions as an individual are still fresh in the minds of the people of Kampala and the Metropolitan. This was a bit covered up when he was transferred to head the Human Resource Department and AIGP Director of operations. We have for long known that this is the true image of the Police, but the appointment of a person of such calibre will leave all Ugandans weeping whenever he appears in the media to justify police positions. Whereas the entire institution is rotten, we are convinced there is a better rot than Kaweesi! As a Party, we task Kaweesi in his new capacity to parade IGP Kale Kayihura instead of parading lower officers such as the truck driver. The IGP is at large and he disobeyed Court Criminal Summons.

Déjà Vu’: The Kampala Metropolitan Police doesn’t have common sense when it comes to Besigye!

Besigye 25.07.2016 P2

It’s is a déjà vu’ for Dr. Kizza Besigye today as he must have felt it, yet again entering Makindye Court to answer yet another case in-front of another judge; The Judge must really like Posho, because the charge was soft and gooey. Even ACP Polly Namaye claimed the infamous law Public Order Management Act on the detaining and stopping Besigye from attending the Tuesday Prayer at Najjankumbi Headquarters in Kampala on the 4th April 2016.

As the Police at that time called it a planned procession through Metropolitan Kampala as he was driving from Kasangati through the town. That day he was planning to cross Mulago toward the Central Kampala, but as Police Commanders under orders of Kampala Metropolitan Commander Andrew Felix Kaweesi. Then his car was whisked away as he was taken to Old Kiira Road Police Station. This was as he had disobeyed Police Orders at a Roundabout towards Kalerwe not far from Mulago. So the Police had already decided to detain him!

Besigye Jinja Road 25.07.2016

Now today he entered the Makindye Court together with Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago at his side, to address the court of the unlawful behavior and disobeying police orders in April 2016. Apparently the earlier trial dates are showing that the Government defense of the case was manufactured and wasn’t clear. As the State-Witness on the 22nd May when addressing the court was even contradicting himself and wasn’t really saying anything considerate about the case. For instance at one second he was a higher level officer in the Army before becoming Police, later he countered that statement with saying he never we’re in the Army. If that is the truth than he had a hard time becoming an officer in the army, when he never was there! Therefore the evidence of the crime we’re properly dismissed at Makindye on the 25th July 2016. This proves that the Police Force and Government have wasted lots of time creating issues instead of actually governing.

So the continued aggression from the state came quickly as the word of the dismissal and public walked and greeted Besigye in the Central of Kampala. This was not accepted by the government and Police. The Police still under Andrew Felix Kaweesi, had to silence the brief greeting the public. As the “procession” made-up by random people and supporters shows the popularity of the FDC leader.

Therefore today’s activity from the Metropolitan Police must feel back to the normal as he quickly from leaving the Makindye Court we’re taken to Jinja Road Police Station; while he car we’re towed away from the place in town he we’re picked-up by the Police. So the reality is that the Police is creating a problem; instead of erasing problems. They claimed his car was shoddy and a DMC or a Defect Automobile (Dangerous Mechanical Condition). So the White Toyota Land Cruiser been the criminal passing town and apparently the driver or driven by Besigye. So they couldn’t charge him with procession, I am sure the Police Officer wasn’t sure how to write that; as the Police Officers have written that wrong before.

Besigye 25.07.2016 Jinja Road

At the Jinja Road Police Station the detained politician and arch-nemesis of Museveni, Besigye we’re spending time with loyal allies in Lord Mayor Lukwago, Wafula Oguttu, Hon Amuriat, Hon. Geoffrey Ekanya and Ingrid Turinawe. As he we’re also collecting his statement on disobeying police orders, while his car we’re lucky to be claimed to be a DMC, while the footage on NBS and NTV of the matter shows the “damage” is fiction from the Police Officers to find reasons to detain him again and create new possible trial dates to stop him from attending and questioning the rule of law in the Nation.

So the phony and laughable perfect IGP Kayihura has yet another question about the man so-called fighting him. As he under his leadership tormenting Besigye another day at one of his Police Stations in the Central Uganda; one of the Police Stations Besigye knows well. Surely one of the places he should have wall where he could use chalk to imprint how many times he has been detained there. So IGP Kayihura must be proud of Commander Kaweesi for yet another time finding a solution to silence Besigye, with the charge of DMC. The car that the Police have broken before in 2016 to tear-gas the ones sitting in the car! Did you forget that, yes you did; and at one point Kayihura even promised a new car to Besigye, like that would happen?

Besigye 25.07.2016

Well, let’s be clear, this a phony charge, in the levels of impunity of the Calvary, the Kifeesi Police who has respect and want’s to silence the opposition with the detention of vocal opposition and men of defiance against the status quo of those who are dropping funds after NRM Cronies in scam-bailouts. That is the ones that are detained today and the conflict of justice for all is not there; it is only justice for elite and the men kissing Mzee’s ring. The rest can end-up behind bars, beaten by the police or shedding tears after shooting at the public with teargas.

This will continue as the NRM-Regime cannot help them, they are on sail-boat at the middle of sea, far from land without any wind and trying to find oars to row into land; but they are hidden behind deck and the Mzee doesn’t seem to know because his vision doesn’t say so. Therefore the men who are lost at sea are waiting for accurate statement and direction to the oars while the problem of no wind let them left at sea instead of getting into shade at the harbor. Peace.

FDC 184/IGP/1/04/16 – “Re: FDC Demonstration and Procession (25.04.2016)

Letter to IGP Kayihura 5th May 2016

Opinion: Preventative Arrest is used against the Opposition, especially the ones that are in the sense of the President is violating his playground.

Rukungiri 19.04.2016

I don’t know what the plan is for these Police Officers of the NRM regime now-a-days. It’s like it is their plan when they wake up and find some opposition members to detain. Not find some murders or criminals, but political opposition.

Today after driving from Kabale there level of arrest and towing of cars in convoy over the mountains shows the depressing levels of oppression towards the opposition. It was not only Dr. Kizza Besigye! The other ones who also was taken in custody by the Police we’re Erias Lukwago, Munyagwa Mubarak and Ingrid Turinawe. We could see pictures of the towing over the Rwamucucu toward the Ntungamo. So the actions of the Police was clear, ride them over the mountains with all force where they got towed by an Armored Personnel Carrier (APC). In Ntunagamo they destroyed the car of Besigye and sprayed them with pepper-spray. From there taken away in the well-known Police-Van that has been in public display of character since Mid-February!

Besigye Release on Bond 05.04.2016

So the madness of today proves the value of disgrace the government and security agency have against their own citizens and political active citizens. Instead of using intelligence to catch killers and thieves the police officers are busier to write bond papers with “prossession” and Preventative Arrest than doing proper police work. This must be the idea of the 1986 generation and use of the liberation that we’re to happen.

The NRM regime is busy using the Police Force and Army to spread fear and intimidate the locals and citizens then creating freedom and liberty. The Police Force are detaining politicians who are not the voice of the President. The President decides how easy life can be for the opposition and oppositional figures. With the long-serving Erias Lukwago has to continue to court to be justified to work as Mayor in Kampala.

Kampala 16.11.15 UPF 2

That the streets with mambas, APC and other anti-riot police cars that are riding in the streets. We can now see the manifestation of the suspect spying and following opposition leaders from the Police Force. That they are espionage are important part of the Police activity. As the limited freedom of the opposition is clear!

The Preventative Arrest is used by the Police by any means. Certainly the Police Force should have other means and other tasks at hand. Still, even getting people hired to monitor the Anti-Porn bill. Instead they are busy with spying on the Opposition and detaining them. The law that is in-force is called this: Habitual Criminals (Preventive Detention) Act 1951. An is used to catch opposition day-after-day!

That the Police Force we’re saying that certain routes of driving is wrong and not-right to drive for an Opposition leader, since he had planned to travel to Rukungiri after being in Kabale. That proves the non-sense and attitude of the ruling regime. And that should be questioned. President Museveni and IGP Kayihura knew that this would happen as the orders usually happen from above. They would only happen if the DPC wanted to show progressive thinking and try to take the space of Andrew Felix Kaawesi in Kampala. But I doubt this was the case today.

The action of deciding where a supposed “free” citizen is driving is insane. The sudden actions from the Police prove the malice. This malice and clear message is only in the mind of the IGP and the President. That Besigye and the other FDC leaders is used to being in the spot-light of the Police. That comes with the territory. The Territory that President Museveni sees as his playground. The Playground that FDC and opposition violates. So the Preventative Arrest is supposed to be a warning of his power and his justice. Not the justice or freedom after the codes of law. The rule of law doesn’t matter when you have a ruler of Museveni. The types of Museveni think he is above the law and the one that matter is him. Therefore the Opposition is a hassle and shouldn’t do anything but be a silent minority. So the arrests are set to stop the actions of the opposition and the recruitment of them.

Entebbe Road Kampala 19.02.2016. Demonstrations

So the Preventative Arrest and violations of JUST action is just to perceive and preside the power without question. President Museveni is militarized leader and deals through chain-in-command. He is the general everybody is supposed to blindly following his orders. In that sense that the opposition violates that grounds to oppressive behavior. And with the oppressive behavior against him he has to show aggression without mercy. Therefore the Police detain and harass the opposition until they learn to follow. But that is what we ordinary folks called a Police State and Militarized State or Totalitarian State.

NRM Regime is using the Preventative Arrest at every moment towards the Opposition, the ones that are in the sense of the President violating his playground. It is worrying how easy and how much they have done it over the recent months. This has escalated since Polling Day in Mid-February 2016. There been through the Pre-Election Period the same kind of actions as the Opposition have been detained and released on Bond. The Police work to stifle and cross the opposition at every step. This is tool of oppression the Uganda Police uses the most and will continue to use. This Preventative Arrest and also the Public Order Management Act; an Act I have discussed before and can easily address again! Peace.

Chain Protestors For President Elect Besigye in Uganda (Youtube-Clip)

“The Chain yourself movement is ongoing and here is a video from today. Courtsey of The Insider (a news website in Uganda)” (Martha Leah Nangalama, 2016).

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.

The Police shows their arrogance toward the FDC; the Police said they had the ability to fill in the Petition!

Enage 02.03.2016

Well I will start with a quote from the Uganda Police Spokesman as it says it all! Read what he is saying: “Confining Dr. Kizza Besigye could not prevent FDC from filling a petition if they wished so” – CP Fred Enaga (Kampala Dispatch, 02.03.2016) to the press on the 2nd March 2016.

The days on end with house-arrest, the days on end with detaining at Naggalama Police Station and Kira Road Police Station for going out his home, and that is not preventing him filling a petition? Mr. Fred Enaga is you listening to your own reasoning?

You guys in the Police have done everything in your power to destroy the ability for the FDC to fill a petition. You have guarded the FDC Headquarter at Najjankumbi, attacked and arrested FDC staff at one point. You have stopped FDC Officials and FDC agents who had the Declaration Results Forms. So you could get the DR forms and save face for the mismanagement of the Electoral Commission during the days after the Election Day and the tallying.

If it is arresting continuously FDC agents and men who have evidence of rigging; if that is not stifling the works on gathering evidence to file a petition, than your stupid or ignorant Mr. Enaga. But you’re just saying the words IGP Kale Kayihura want you to say.  You are just proving that the Police is one of the tools to demolish the opposition; as that is the wish of President Museveni.

If not stopping Journalist around Kasangati to report the movement of your police force is not stifling the world to know your mental violence against Dr. Kizza Besigye. Than I don’t know what freedom is?

A little example to you Mr. Enaga:

Mr. Enaga, I hope you get house-arrest, get your people who work for you perpetrated by men of law, and stifle your every movement. Take your car away from you while you go to church. Get your credited police force to get tear-gas into the offices where you work and get men with riot-gear to detain you. Guard the building you work at and not give your ability to work. I will execute this orders to this to you because I have: “intelligence that you’re terrorizing your own citizens and planning to persecute innocent people and hurting them with mambas in the street and house-arresting people without charges”.

Than you can try to do police work and speak your mind to the public. I am sure you couldn’t even put a parking ticket in Kasangati, which was the official excuse for detaining Ingrid Turinawe of FDC and NBS reporter Remmy Bhati who was on Live-TV yesterday.

I do not really wish you this treatment Mr. Enaga; the treatment your Police Force has been doing to the FDC has gone through. For the simple reason: I don’t wish any men or woman go through the hardships that the FDC are and the life that Dr. Kizza Besigye has right now. Mr. Enaga, you sound like fool and act like a fool. Please look at yourself and your police force, be proud of your nonsense. Peace.
