Police Impunity: Dr. Besigye from Prayers for Kasese at Najjakumbi to be towed by Police home to Kasangati!

fdc-01-12-2016

Earlier in the day the Forum for Democratic Change had prayers at their headquarters of Najjankumbi in Kampala. Where the Party we’re holding a prayer meeting for the Kasese Clashes.

As that happen this was reported happening at the HQ:

“The Leader of Opposition in Parliament Winnie Kizza has said that Museneni himself and his son Muhoozi gave orders to massacre people in kasese. Muhoozi camped and stationed the command post at Margaretta hotel in Kasese. Kizza made this revelation while addressing a congregation at the prayers for the people of Kssese who lost their lives in the recent clash. The prayers have been organised at FDC head office Najjanankumbi today Thursday” (Francis Bahene Tumwekwasize, 01.12.2016).

With this in mind he travelled from Najjankumbi to a meeting. This was not verified by the Police Force under orders from Regional Police Commander Geoffrey Kahebwa where FDC leaders had a meeting at Katonga Road. They suddenly came around and started to tow the car, which they did from the Katonga Road until Kasangati and the compound of Dr. Kizza Besigye. The other FDC Leadership tried to explain the RDC about the meeting, but they didn’t care, as they continue do what they do.

Updated: Dr Kizza Besigye comments – “The recovery truck that towed me from town got stuck at home!! Now, a Mamba APC has come to tow it away- God’s case?? Prayers work!!” 

kasangati-01-12-2016

We can see what they do! How they operate and what they do with their own. This is a continued humiliation from the NRM regime towards Besigye and his FDC, because they cannot accept his popularity and his will of defying them. They cannot control him and own him like they own the ones they pocket.

FDC’s Dr. Kizza Besigye is not a free man or having rights or justice, only when the Police Officers looking a blind eye, but if he tries to do too much, as going to the bank or going to meetings with fellow supporters in Central Uganda he could be detained and arrested at any moment. Peace.

Besigye tear-gassed and still arrested at Kiira Road Police Station!

besigye-16-11-2016-p3

As he earlier in the day left the Nakawa Magistrate Court and drove further down Gyaza Road, the Police incepted him as the crowds around his. As usual the Police starting towing the White Van from the area and unto the compound of the Kiira Road Police Station. Something that has dozen times in past and not the first, nor the last time Dr. Kizza Besigye, the nemesis of Museveni will end there.

So the Kampala Metropolitan Police has decided to let him be in his cars for ours. Not allowed to leave it or let anybody see him. As the Police Officers in and around their compound has tear-gassed the area. Which means that they have tear-gassed Dr. Kizza Besigye and the people around the Police Station. This all has happen without any indication of the crime or reason for the day’s arrest of Besigye. Another proof of the ignorant belligerent Police Force currently working under President Museveni.

Stop the Police Brutality and nonsense! Peace.

Besigye again at Nakawa Court pending the Treason Charge; later in the day detained at Kiira Road as well!

besigye-16-11-2016

The nonsense courtship of Dr. Kizza Besigye continues as he was towed from Uganda House to the Courtroom, because valid reasoning for the Police Force at this point, is actually pointless. They just keep his house under siege and house-arrested without warrants and without fresh charges, in the view of the Political Sphere right now, Besigye is guilty for existing.

Therefore his quote in court after being charged in May 13th 2016 by the State Attorney with the Treason Charge section 23 under the Penal Code Act by the powerful D/SSP Mark Odongo of Moroto Magistrate Court. The days he we’re airlifted from Kampala in the midst of darkness while the President Museveni we’re making ready for his Swearing-In Ceremony in bliss lights of dictators at Kololo. Oh Gee, since May the Courts have bounced Besigye more around than Mario Ballotelli have scored this year in the French League.

So when Dr. Kizza Besigye says this, it’s within his right:

“Its now six months since I was arrested but up to now the state has not found the case against me, this court should have dismissed this case if it has powers to do so. I’m not coming back to this court, when they are done with the investigation they can inform me, they know my address or if they want they can arrest me and put me in until they finish their investigations” Dr. Kizza Besigye

President Museveni is now continuing his impunity towards his fellow Opposition, because he knows that he is not popular and has to silence them. The indication is from the rallies recently around up-country where the masses have showed giant support for Besigye and his struggle, which at this is all of theirs.

IGP Kale Kayihura can continue to be the laughingstock and the FBI honorary Police Officer, but his acts is vicious and show of the level of disgrace towards common-sense and justice towards a citizen, who just happen to question the legitimacy of Museveni’s overstaying Presidency.

besigye-16-11-2016-p2

As he left for his home in Kasangati, the Police Van took him to the Kiira Road Police Station, as the crowds on Gyaza Roads circulated his car. Which makes the Dictator Museveni sneeze. So the Police had to arrest him again and surely will write him off with a “Procession” charge of some kind, I guess, because that is their M.O.

Peace.

Besigye’s “Treason Charge” adjourned to mid-November 2016; Waiting indefinite to Sentence him as they are silencing the People’s President through another day of Mock-Court!

besigye-12-10-2016

Just as we are talking today we’re in mid-October and the Presidential Election are already months away and the Treason charge continues to linger over the life Forum for Democratic Change Dr. Kizza Besigye. He had to today again had to pass out of his home in Kasangati, that has been besieged around the weekend and been detained without reason or charge during the Independence Day, he was that together with many of the FDC leaders and FDC Youth League who we’re captured like their we’re doing co-operated effort to directly undermine the authorities, instead of celebrating the Nation 54 years of Independence from the United Kingdom and their British Empire.

Well, let’s be clear that is not cool, no matter what excuse the poor excuse for a man called AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi displays of meagre character and use of laws that makes CP Fred Enaga into a legend of spin-control. That says more about the Police Force disposition as the carrier of rule of law and instead their work to institutionalize their oppressive behaviour against the Political Party and their Defiance Campaign.

Today as the Treason Charged man called Besigye we’re passing through from his homestead towards the Nakawa Court. He we’re blocked at Sheraton Hotel as the Police Force wouldn’t even let him answer to the call of a case that the DPP Mike Chibita hasn’t been able to carry out the collection of evidence or credible courtship for Besigye. The Treason Charge against Besigye we’re filed on the 13th May 2016 from the CID Headquarters of the Police Force, the noble man charging him we’re D/SSP Mark Odong. He must surely be remembered for signing of on this nonsense as the loyal muppet he is for the NRM Regime. Here are the words that Besigye said on the Court-Steps of Nakawa today!

Besigye addressing the Press today:

”I am about to protest coming to this court, I will continue fulfilling my conditions of bail on the same case. When they are ready they will call. It’s been more than 5 months since o was arrested and there is still no case that they have to present against me”.
Again: Nakawa court adjourned the treason case to 16th November 2016. Postponing the case indefinite to make his life in the limbo and courting him like they have done for years for charges under the Walk to Work, even in Kabale Court, which still in 2016 is not yet finished or even sentencing on year upon end; the phony charges and court games are used to silence and stop the Opposition leader from having capacity to live normal and work as a political figure against Mzee. That is the plan all along.

Sorry, wange, sorry brother; it’s enough, your gig is up. Please stop the Mock-Courts, the Kangaroo Courts and the misuse of funds to save face. Wait, the Ugandan Government cannot get enough money to keep the upkeep of Makerere University Hospital or Electricity at times for Mulago Referral Hospital, while the President has funds to buy new Russian Helicopter to his expansive US aided army. Peace.

Uganda Human Rights Commission: “Re: Complaint No. CTR/13/2016 Dr. Kizza Besigye Kifefe and Attorney General” (05.10.2016)

Opinion: Countering the nonsense of attacking Besigye as there are more dire need reactions from the supporters if they want change!

Besigye Kampala 11.05.2016 P4

The Defiance campaign couldn’t be an easy run; it would be and is a long walk to freedom. There isn’t a short quick and brief change out of thin air. The wish and concern isn’t only on the FDC Presidential Candidate of late Dr. Kizza Besigye. The arrests for Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka of Nakawa and his Court Martial; together with arrest of the ones who dare to protest against the National Resistance Movement in this day and age. Just like the Youth of Democratic Party who demonstrated against the greedy Members of Parliament we’re detained. The oppression of the NRM regime doesn’t go away overnight like morning dew.

For those of you who thought this would be easy. Yes I had hope in February that the FDC and Dr. Kizza Besigye would win, because of the men running he had the best agenda and the needed remedy. The NRM has involved the Central Government in a way where the directions of the fiscal policies and the cash-barred MPs to beg for greed instead of dropping policies and laws that matters. The NRM machine are more caring about skinny jeans, short skirts and porn than having working equipment in the hospitals and steady delivery of needed medicines. This is the proof of the rigid brown-enveloped system blessed by the almighty at the State House.

While that is happening there people with hope and see that the brown-envelopes won’t create any common good, but only for the current elite who eat the spoils of foreign donors and the secretive agreements between government and businesses. Getting mansions and luxurious SUVs before riding to the closest mall where even the Government Spokesperson Ofwono Opondo stole underwear. It’s just how the system is made to blatant regard the men who in all their honour bow their heads to the Mzee on the top. They are allowed to do anything and get away with it. Therefore the ones who counter this paradigm get whipped, detained or even disgraced in public.

FDC Youth 14.03.2016

Still, with this in mind the blames that the current embattled Besigye is at fault. Not because he hasn’t tried and done what he could empower the opposition with vigour to assemble in Power 10 (P10) Structure and other to counter the NRM Poor Youth or any other group that the Government used to silence the FDC. The FDC mobilisers has been detained as common as the roads development has been bribing state officials; it is so common that the news of detaining a FDC Youth or Mobilisers are day-to-day acts of the Police Force. So it is not like Besigye and the FDC haven’t had heavy-water to carry.

The assurance that the Defiance Campaign wasn’t made in fear of repression from the NRM or the Government; should have been well known as the NRM Regime has since it establishment done what it could to harass and disrupt the rallies of Dr. Paul Ssemogerere and so on. The ones forgetting that is currently forgotten the past. I am sure even the current leader of DP Norbert Mao has had issues under the last Campaign Trial in 2011/2012. Norbert Mao we’re even detained during the campaign in this calendar-year because the UPF cannot help themselves to make life hard for real opposition.

So with that knowledge of this and even after the 10th Parliament have started and the Plenary Sessions begun. This is the start of the new breed of MPs, who wish to get more funds and more salaries then the former legislators. They want to be rich quick and get that on the public funds. They don’t have ideas of their obligations to represent their citizens and not eat of their citizens. Even if they just follow what the ‘Old Man with the Hat’ has teaches them as he came with empty pockets to the Parliament and now decades later are richer than god.

Ready to Move with Sevo Music Campaign for 2016 P4

So if the ones caring thought the Defiance Campaign would succeed on its own like a marching band making noise on the gates when it past and everybody enjoying it. You’re wrong because some hates the marching band and other wish they just went down more street. Defiance of Besigye had to get public support and truly be invested in it to get the change happen. The fear of the repression of the regime and their sanctions might be a reason for why it has partly failed for the moment. Because if they wanted they should do more than quickly after thinking of boycotting the “Tubonga Nawe” artists who campaigned for the Cow farmer.

Besigye had #KigwaLeero wishing for a brighter future and make a difference. He asked for a government with accountability and we’re there for the public. Not like the ones that is there now who is there for former rebel who takes the riches for himself and leaves scraps for the elite who is loyal to him.

Defying the regime could not be done by him alone in Kasangati, it could be only be the hardliners who stood by Besigye in his hardships. It has to be made the ones who really want to get rid of the regime of present. It will not be easy and get there easily. Some has spoken of violence and using the tactics of old, like the ones that Mzee used himself to get power. If you do so wouldn’t you be the same as him? If he used guns and guerrilla warfare to get into power and you use the same doesn’t that make you a rebel who dreamed of power and not a true democrat? Even if Ghana’s Jerry Rawlings made it and ushered in a positive political system, that doesn’t necessary work for Besigye.

I doubt that Besigye want to use violence and rebel through the rifles and assassinate his opponents. As he was parts of the NRA and doesn’t want the change to be of the old ways, only through guns and on the battlefield. There is precisely in history that none President or Executive in Uganda has been changed peacefully through the ballot, instead through the bullets, which makes sense at least to those of us who believes in peaceful transitions.

VPN 18.02.2016 P2

That means that this is not alone on Besigye, this is on the supporters and the opposition itself. That means that struggle of the opposition has to defy the current regime. With means that hurt the regime and that discontinue the fiscal funding of government, that counter the legitimacy of the institutions and the opposition has to build strong grass-root movement that has most of the base in the population. So that you have all corners on the knees and weak; so that the actions of government can be countered by people’s sanctioning them. The best acts of the defiance during the Election period were the use of VPN to counter to Social-Media Ban of the Uganda Communication Commission (UCC). So the people have it naturally in them when they feel betrayed and knowledge of ways to stop nonsense from all-controlling government.

It’s that kind of defiance that is needed. That kind of acts that hurts the MTN and the others who practically funds the regime and keeps the taxation without representation going. Besigye can be blamed, but he is the spokesman and the one who is tormented by the regime already. So the man has done and continues to do his part. The people behind have to use their wisdom and ways to destabilize the regime by peaceful means and even risk their freedoms. As so many youths and people associated with FDC has been during the years. Also other political parties have also felt the pain of being opposition. So the ones blaming Besigye has lost the basic component of it all: the key is always the people! They, the people have the fate of the government in their hands; the Government lives either on the trust from the public or of the fear of the people going against it.

The people decide not only through secret ballots, but through their faith and their assessment of the situation of how they believe they should govern. Some might accept the current regime in silence because of the fear and the belief if they go against it they lose it all. But if those all thinks like this than the organizing against the current regime will not become of anything.

Now with this the FDC and Besigye have to show Defiance and be upfront as they have to use their support to weaken the NRM and their henchmen’s. This is not only defying in court and going from kangaroo courts and smiling on NTV. That is to directly counter the regimes acts in Parliament, demonstrate and boycott. Use other ways with even stronger force and more success than Walk to Work. That will not be easy and that can only happen if the momentum and belief together with the peoples. The Peoples or the Citizens can only act when they are sure they will conquer the regime, if not they will demonstrate and lose the little they have. They lose their hawking job and their voice where they were. That is not acceptable.

Kapwocha FDC 080116 P1

What Besigye has to do is not to give in or give up. He is the voice of hope and a brighter new day. But to get the brighter new day for the Ugandan people under a new government who have other belief in institutions and service delivery than the people has to support Besigye and his cause. Not because Besigye is only one who can do this, but because he is the ones who champion it through defiance on his own.

The ones who attacks Besigye for his campaign hasn’t understood it; but is more worrying is that people can only stand behind their voice in the wilderness or leave the belief of regime change. And giving up a 30 year regime and an Executive that has been there since 1986 is hard. Because of the ways the draconian laws and fiscal policies are set-up. That should give reason for the citizens to react with demonstrations and peaceful mobilizations in the ways of the VPN to defy the all-eating NRM and their in-accurate methods of silencing voices which isn’t their own. Peace.

Budget Financing Lies in Balance – Besigye (Youtube-Clip)

“Former Forum for Democratic President retired Col Dr. Kizza Besigye casts doubt on government hopes to raise 26 trillion shillings to finance the 2016/2017 national budget. Besigye says the majority Ugandans can’t afford to spend on commodities that result in revenues for government, arguing that some have already cut their expenditure” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)
