Besigye gets into trouble: because he waves at the crowd and goes to the Bank!

besigye-04-10-2016-p1

There is reports that the house of Besigye is barricaded again by Police Officers as he earlier in the day went down-town central Kampala Business District to the Crane Bank to surely just take out some money so he could pay for food and running expenses. Something every man and person needs. So the news that the Police used force and even took him away at the Clock Tower today in Kampala proves the un-necessary effort to stop Besigye in whatnot he does on his daily basis.

A Police Officer around the bank told him: “That he was not allowed to wave at the people”. Mr. Officer which law is your presiding over and who asshole gave you the order today? Was it IGP Kale Kayihura who called it procession and wanted it stop; so we can hear the new fake news from AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi who will speak his nonsense later tonight.

The Uganda Police Force and their laws have an apparent problem with Dr. Kizza Besigye, as they have with the Pro-Change Youths that are often detained at any point when Besigye wants to congregate. If not just stopping by their political figure and show respect to the man who speaks for the people and not for the feeding of the bank-accounts of Mzee.

Because the Police had to take him out of his into the famous van and drive him back to Kasangati, his home after the people we’re circulating his car. As they took him into the van, they used on of their Anti-Riot vehicles to tow his car to his home. They knew that Besigye lack money for gas at this point (joking by the way). Nevertheless, there are striking issues here!

museveni-police-day-2016

Only on today’s heroics of Besigye, the Police Force is reported to have spent 500m shillings on the charade of brilliant behaviour and brutality to silence the opposition leader and legitimate leader, the people’s president as President Museveni we’re busy parading yesterday his Police at Police Day (ironically) at Kololo Grounds; his favourite show-off of power and parading grounds as the shut-off area make it look like he has some sort of popularity. But in reality the people flock around Besigye and Museveni gets the last end of the stick.

This here proves the issuing problem that doesn’t go away, even if the Uganda Police Force besieged the home of Besigye; his support doesn’t dwindle away and his party doesn’t cease to exist. The certainty is that the Police Force and the Government cannot afford to continue the belittling of them in the pursuit of nonsense deteriorating the procedures and rule of law with their impunity towards the man. So Mzee and his cadres looks more and more foolish, more desperate and more weak as their tools are soon exhausted in their rally to demolish and trying with acts of fatigue towards Besigye.

The Police Force isn’t looking professional or acting so as they are using any opportunity to crash, to detain and arrest FDC Youth and Besigye. They cannot help themselves and their cadres for these vile attempts of creating peace, but instead creating violence. They are violating basic rights and acts of citizens to be out. Just as they we’re doing to fellow peers yesterday as over 50 Youths we’re captured by Police in Entebbe. 10 of them we’re taken from Makerere University. Moses Byamugyisha we’re today in Entebbe fighting all day and reported gotten 16 out of jail, but still many lingering without trial or court dates as the impunity are static. Just like the values of Crane Bank who cannot be sold without consent of the Museveni family.

besigye-04-10-2016-p2

Let me be clear, as long as this prolongs the KEY QUESTION for the Police Force is: “Are Besigye a legit citizen?”, “Does Besigye have rights?” ;”Is Besigye allowed to have justice?”, “Are Besigye a man who can have the liberty to walk, work and live?”

These are basic for the Police because they do not care to what extent they steal and thief time and ordinary life from the man. The same Police who doesn’t care if they detain innocent civilians or even tear-gas a couple for the mock of it. The failure of righteous and equal law is now on the forefront as the violent and brutal Police has nothing to deliver or compensate their acts of vile snatching of freedoms. As they do to anybody who is a subject near the Political figure and stature of Besigye. That is something the Police and Government should know, and knows very well, but will not admit as the cowards they are!

It’s time ask, how much can the people see of this acts and this attempts of political prison of a single citizen without acting with peaceful demonstrations against the aggressors and sponsors of this thuggery? Peace.

#BesigyeReturns and the Calvary goes into panic mode!

upf-03-10-2016

“Police is not going to allow any activity that is going to disrupt normal activity in the city. FDC didn’t communicate changes regarding Kizza Besigye’s return. We expected him on September 29,” police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi on FDC’s planned procession to welcome the leading opposition figure” (NBS TV Uganda,2016).

It’s ironic that the Police Spokesman and that the Authorities has questions towards normal activity as of just hours ago the Kampala we’re busy with the KCCA sponsored Carneval where Dr. Jennifer Musisi drove a expensive Mercedes and the different sponsors had tents and concerts while the Kampala we’re decorated for festivities and other acts that the Police accepted, but that FDC and Besigye planning something is “disrupting normal activity” which means disrupting the embezzlement and power of the people like the regime does daily. Well, here is my reports and quotes from what happen on this day!

Just as the roads to the Entebbe International Airport we’re closed with roadblocks to close off the Airport as the Kenya Airways containing Besigye we’re arriving this morning. The Journalists wishing to attend and see the arrival we’re blocked from doing so. The Pro-Change Youth who wanted to decorate roads around Entebbe we’re arrested the numbers we’re up to 26 people alone there.

While at FDC Headquarters Najjankumbi we’re besieged by the Police Command of the area and there we’re even a military helicopter flying over. While 200 supporters and FDC leadership we’re stuck inside as the Police Officers and such kept the Political Party of Besigye under siege yet again.

fdc-hq-10-09-2016

As the Airplane arrived and opened for the people to disembark the security outfit, somebody claims the Flying Squad aka Special Force Command that is under Museveni’s son Brig. Muhoozi. That they we’re going into the plane with Civil Aviation Authority clothes and kidnapped him one the spot as they whisked him into a CAA vehicle on the ground. They just took him without his passport and his luggage as he was taken away without knowing his final destination. Nobody knew but the captors.

In the early morning the FDC officials and FDC VIPs like FDC MPs we’re not allowed by Airport Security to even be at the VIP Lounge to congregate and make festivities for the arriving Besigye, as they didn’t know at that point that he would be kidnapped by CAA people or people we’re CAA clothes.

There we’re roadblocks between Kampala and Wakiso, to be correct into Kasangati where Besigye resides and famously known as Kasangati Statehouse. That we’re blocked and there we’re mambas and Anti-Demonstrations vehicles all around the roads as the fear of the government as the Political Party leader of FDC we’re coming home.

As in Kampala the Clock Tower we’re sealed off, there are even reports of tear-gassing the public on Jinja Road. While the Police Officers and Police Cars we’re everywhere taking civilians into jail or whisking them away.

“Moses Walugembe (NBS reporter): “We’ve been told journalists aren’t allowed to proceed to the airport. We have asked the officers why we are being blocked and an officer told us they are under orders. Access to the airport is limited to passengers” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

At Kitubulu on Entebbe road from the packed Kajjansi Police Post the traffic corresponding the area, all of them we’re checked by the Police Officers before being allowed to continue to pass towards Entebbe. The same Police even stopped a man for going with Matooke on the side of the road and took it from the man.

Doreen Nyanjura statement today:

Here at Entebbe police station, Police goons have come with stones, sticks and pangas! They want the activists to take photos With the stones, sticks and Pangas! Fortunately they are defying and I have joined them in the defiance. We have chased the camera man away. What nonsense is this! This is not the first time these goons are doing this!” (Nyanjura, 2016).

The Supporters ready to greet Besigye in Kampala with Blue Colours and gear we’re either whisked away or detained as the regime don’t want to look weak as the People’s President we’re arriving home.

besigye-kasangati-03-10-2016

Kizza Besigye: ”What happened today is a clear demonstration that I am the people’s president. I got here with a whole convoy of police cars, all with sirens, bringing the president back. I have not come back officially. My passport is not stamped. My luggage is still at the airport. Some police officers went to claim my luggage, a thing Kenya Airways refused to do” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

At Makerere University Pro-Change students who we’re preparing for activity today we’re also detained as they we’re not allowed to celebrate the return of Besigye.

There we’re so much un-necessary behaviour of the Police, but this is the proud men of IGP Kale Kayihura and Mzee, they cannot do otherwise. The planned meeting and the regiment of Police earlier days ago we’re not transparent as they had to violently and with brutal misconception of freedom take him away from the airport.

The NRM regime is weak when they fear the man this much and does this to civilian without an army or a guerrilla. They do this to man who wants accountability and transparency, a government governed by the people. He is flogged and stolen away his freedoms for the cause of them. President Museveni and his elite is weak unit when they cannot muster a gentler force and better will power than this.

The FDC and Dr. Kizza Besigye knows that this cannot go on indefinite as the use of resources and time will trickle on the power and their reputation as the news of their unneeded activity towards the opposition like today. The repressive and oppressive behaviour that I hope leads into more Organizations and more Multi-Nationals like World Bank and AIG pulls out their support of funds towards the NRM regime and their eating of the poverty of their citizens while the voices of the citizens struggle to live and have freedom. Peace.    

Uganda: IGP Kayihura on “Home Coming for Dr. Kizza Besigye, 29th September 2016 (28.09.2016)

upf-besigye-28-09-2016

Opinion: Fear for tomorrow’s Homecoming of Besigye, not for the reasons you might think!

Entebbe Road Kampala 11.02.2016 FDC Convoy P2

Entebbe Road on 11th February 2016 – FDC Convoy!

I fear for tomorrow and for the roads from Entebbe International Airport tomorrow. That is because the Uganda Police Force have beaten civilians with batons and thrown tear-gas steady through 2015-2016. As long as the Forum for Democratic Change and former Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye have drove or been around somewhere the Police Force has used excessive force towards the ordinary people.

I also fear for the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), even as the organizers of the return of Besigye have been at the Police Force. They we’re detained as is tradition by now for the IGP Kale Kayihura colleagues and family. Who takes in Political Opposition into jail daily if they could for no apparent reason; but on this rare occasion the Police actually talked to FDC Youth and others who are behind the procession.

The Procession will happen if they we’re organizing or not, since if you have followed the political leader Besigye, you know his real popularity and the reasons for his epical rise. Also if you have followed the man you know the ending of it; if it is business as usual in Kampala.

The National Resistance Movement and Uganda Police Force are two tightknit bodies who work for the general calm and control of all people under the vision of the old man with the hat. That is an unwritten rule and guideline that was forgotten to amend into the 1995 Constitution; nevertheless, the outcomes are usually the same.

There will be Police Brutality and will be people detained tomorrow, the Besigye himself will be taken from his car at some point. Harold Kajja, Ingrid Turinawe, Erias Lukwago, Pastor David Ngabo, Doreen Nyanjura, Wafula Oguttu and others might be detained after their cars been taken away at the same time. The planned rally or consulting meeting will be dispersed by the Police Force as well.

Kale Kayihura Choose Peace

Afterwards the AIGP Kaweesi will sweet-talk on NTV Uganda and NBS TV using all kind of excuses and say the Police Officers was doing so because of criminal activity, looting, exodus of rats, thieving and the unauthorized movement not complying with Public Order Management Act; the infamous Anti-Besigye Act. Because it was created to silence the public and the opportunity for him to garn crowds without having the authorities to silence them with protection of a government sanctions towards him and his party.

With this in mind, I fear tomorrow, it should be jolly, but I don’t. I have no faith in the NRM and their Police Commanders doing something positive and something that resemble justice at this point .The rotten acts of misbehaviour and violence that has been sanctioned over decades under President Yoweri Museveni doesn’t just stop. Even if he is living in riches and ignorance of the commoners struggle. Hey, he is rich and has all the wealth he could dream of in the bush before overthrowing the Kampala Political-Junta of the time.

So, with this in mind he has taken it all for granted and his nemesis is arriving on Entebbe tomorrow. It will be hostile and the suspect of treason arrives from Europe. I am not hopeful, I am not; do I wish it was different? Yes! Do I think it will be different? No. Not unless there are some people who a filling in forms for redemption.

The Police Force I expect tomorrow to create chaos on the road between Entebbe-Kampala-Kasangati. That the FDC Headquarters in Najjankumbi might even also be hit as the Treason Charged Michael Kabaziguruka and Dr. Kizza Besigye both might still have evidence shelved there.

The Police and their henchmen will use all kind of accusations to validate the violence on the citizens and the FDC who organize tomorrow “Homecoming” of Besigye. If not there are clearly a charade of decency that is unnatural under the leadership of Gen. Kayihura and Gen. Museveni. They cannot do anything else than use their tools to oppress their civilians. Peace.

Opinion: Why I have a giant problem with the Military Courts are pending the ‘Treason’ charge of Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka!

Hon. Michael

Today the case we’re adjourned at the Makindye Military Court as the Lieutenant General Andrew Gutti we’re receiving and holding the court martial over the newly elected Member of Parliament representing in Nakawa district of Kampala. He beat the former MP Hon. Fred Ruhindi of National Resistance Movement, the former Attorney General in Parliament who must feel the pain of not gaining public support after being loyal to his master in President Museveni.

With this in mind, this is a case that has been going for a while since his firsts arrest, raiding of his homes and detaining. After that the detained Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka have been tormented at the Kireka SIU, been changed prisons and not allowed to get visitations. While the Ugandan Police in May 2016 where looking at the working place, the home and any indication of the Treason plans “we’re supposed to have”. As much as the Forum for Democratic Change Dr. Kizza Besigye we’re also charged with treason and taken to Moroto and back to Luzira to serve his charge and waiting the pending case. He has been later taken on bond and has to go to court every second week. This kind of pleasant piece of freedom is not something the Republic gives to Hon. Kabaziguruka.

Hon. Kabaziguruka are charged and we’re supposed to plan to ‘assassinate’ the executive, the long-serving president, his excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on his farm or so. As insulting and wild assumptions of the Uganda Police and their defense… this is sadly not a new way of silencing the opposition as they have done this before. That they did with detaining Besigye before and also his brother for the same charges. So the stories of this seem fabricated to suit the powers to be and keep them on top while the Opposition goes for justice in kangaroo-courts.

The Hon. Kabaziguruka is to set a standard and set the level of fear the NRM regime can put in line. They are putting a non-military man and not a soldier, lieutenant, sergeant or any kind of military position man, but a civilian through Military Court. If this we’re General Sejusa than it had made sense, as he hadn’t until one point not gotten his retirement from the UPDF. The issue with Hon. Kabaziguruka, he is not a military man who are a part of the UPDF at this point. Therefore he should been taken to ‘Ordinary’ Court and not Military Court. He should be tried by the people and their representative of understanding the law; not by military men who are loyal to Lt. Gen. Museveni, but a court who are supposed to be loyal the Constitution and the laws that are applied in the land.

This case shouldn’t be going in a military court; it has nothing there to do. It is a fiction of imagination that the society is so militarized and the levels of fear from the Executive that he has to take citizens who is not connected to his army to military courts to answer for phony charges. The case will be back to surface again on the 23rd August 2016. As the FDC Honourable have yet again to answer for made-up charges. The reality of the extent of impunity under Museveni is now ridiculous and malicious. What the outcome and if the silencing of the up-coming MP is an indication this 7th Term President and 10th Parliament MPs will have a hard way of legitimizing the political climate they are showing with  these arrests and this Police Force violently and with charges providing unsound methods to secure the power of NRM. But is it worth it though; When everything is corrupt and nothing is pure not even real or just? Is that what the legacy of Museveni will be that he corrupted all institutions and defended his accusation of grabbing power by taking innocent political careers as feeding his ego on the farm? Peace.

NRM proves their control with two cases today: One with Lumumba’s planned power and promotion of Ruhindi for the EC!

NRM-P

The NRM and President Museveni cannot help himself to centralize the power around his loyal men and woman who he knows he can corrupt. This can be done by money and they’re not getting trouble as Mzee hides the issues of this corruption. Therefore the Kyankwanzi words of Museveni that he would fight corruption are three-decades in and useless uttering of hot-air. As seen by the recent actions, only today alone. Take a look!

Justine Kasule Lumumba

First NRM Case- Secretary Justine Kasule Lumumba order:

“One of the resolutions read thus: “The Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, and relevant Ministries, shall submit loan requests one month in advance to the Prime Minister and the Secretary General for inter-sectoral scrutiny before loans are contracted, to confirm that the said loans are aligned to the NRM Manifesto, and the Strategic Guidelines and Directives.” (…) “The NRM leadership and the Secretariat shall be involved in all aspects of policy formulation and implementation, and in the national budgeting process,” agreed the ministers and permanent secretaries” (…) “Further, the Kyankwanzi meeting also agreed that “The National Development Planning processes, policy formulation and implementation, budgeting, among others shall faithfully reflect and embody the NRM Manifesto 2016 – 2021, and the Strategic Guidelines and Directives issued by the President to Cabinet” (TheInsider.co.ug, 2016).

The Secretary General that took over for Amama Mbabazi wants to flex more after the General Election and Campaign period where she promised to kill the ones going against the NRM Organization and Party. As the NRM we’re destined to run the country. This is again proving that the NRM EC and NRM NEC doesn’t have it in them to fulfil the forms after the General Election where they we’re questioning her leadership abilities. Now months after this grievances are left behind. She is suddenly a controlling mastermind that is loyal to Museveni and therefore deserves the nudge of checking the transactions of the Ministries and Parliament budget; as the small loans in the Public Finance Management Act Amendment of 2015, could let the Ministries when needed short term loans take them from Bank of Uganda without the permission of the Parliament. Now the shortcut of the laws is taken one step back, but will be transparent through the leadership and Secretary General of NRM Lumumba. This proves the impunity and disregard for the Parliamentary procedure of procurement. The Ministries when needed loans have to go to Lumumba for their debts and the need for new fiscal funds to finance their work; that is just so accountable as she can accept monies for her friends and NRM loyalist, but from others she can discard. As the request are deemed in her hands, not in any other. NRM will control the requests for loans for the ministries before the PFMA 2015; that is just showing how democratic the NRM have become over the years.

Fred Ruhindi TV

Second NRM Case- Fred Ruhindi to take EC Commissioner’s seat:   

“According to credible sources, Ruhindi, a former Attorney General and Minister for Constitutional Affairs will replace Eng. Badru Kiggundu whose tenure reportedly ends at the end of this month” (…) “The soft-spoken Ruhindi lost the Nakawa seat to Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Michael Kabaziguruka, and has since then withdrawn to private life” (Kawalya, 2016).

The Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka who are still detained for treason as he was plotting to get rid of President Museveni; the man who brought the Attorney General position in Parliament to an end. Therefore the resurrection of the Museveni loyalist wouldn’t be surprising as the resurface of Gen. Kahinda Otafiire in the cabinet as the other loyal cadre lost both the NRM Primary and the General Election this year. President Museveni has a way of paying back to loyal man. If he would give this role to Fred Ruhindi it would be fitting to have a blind “yes man” as the Electoral Commission leader, as the EC have failed and lost so many NRM MPs after the election as the EC didn’t vet and check the credentials of the candidates properly before running the ballot. Also the frauds of the election have also been very evident therefore many reasons for the President to change leaders of the EC before next election to not lose face again. With the fraudulent recent election has backfired and somebody has to fall on their sword; luckily for the Ugandans not the head-honcho, but the puppet filling in the forms for the Mzee. Peace.

UHRC: Quotes for a thought; a must read on Human Rights breaches in Uganda!

uganda-masaka-prison

“I had a case of my brother who was arrested by police and was asked to pay UGX 100,000. But after the community meeting by UHRC, I learnt that police bond is free.” A participant in a community meeting in Luweero District (UHRC, P: 64, 2016).

As there been a hectic year for Uganda, with the preparation for the General Election of 2016, the report from Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC), should have lots of instances where the breaches of violations towards political opponents and dissidents from the NRM-Regime. As the system is to uphold the status-quo and respect Mzee. I will today look through the Report and find the most staggering numbers and tales. To show what kind of actions the government does against their own citizens, in the name of the Executive and his reign to keep rule all for himself!

Alone alleged violations in Uganda that we’re registered in 2015 we’re “Torture, cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” total of 345, “Deprivation of personal liberty/detention beyond 48 hours” total of 247, “ and kind of violation in 2015 we’re 909 to all the offices of UHRC. As seen the registered complaints to the UHRC; the respondents are the once claimed to be responsible for the violations. Here is the one usually behind it:

“The top five respondents over the past six years (2010-2015) have remained the UPF, private individuals, UPDF, local governments and the UPS. In the six years, the UPF had a total of 2,646 (the highest number of complaints registered against a respondent), while private individuals had 1,271. The UPDF had 622; UPS, 205; and local governments, 200” (UHRC, P: 15, 2016). This here proves the level of violations from the Army and Police; the once that are surprised by that haven’t followed how the Modus Operandi of the security organizations in Uganda.

Kakira Prision

One testimony to the UHRC:

“I was told by the investigations team they would follow up my complaint of being detained for eight days at Kakira Police Station. Indeed the Uganda Human Rights [Commission] team did so. I was never at any one point in time asked for facilitation to conduct the investigation until it ended. I now await the outcome of the investigation. By the way, it is upon the Commission’s intervention that I was released immediately. Investigations were conducted objectively and thoroughly to the extent that the perpetrators asked for my forgiveness.” (UHRC, P: 15, 2016).

Second testimony to the UHRC:

“I was arrested by the police from Adjumani Central Police Station on allegations of theft. During detention, my money [amounting to] UGX 200,000 was taken and kept by the police. After conviction and serving my sentence in prison, I went to claim my money, but police told me it was an exhibit in court. When I reported the matter to UHRC, it was registered and investigated and all my money was paid back.” (UHRC, P: 16, 2016).

Complaints completed in 2015:

“In 2015, UHRC closed 382 complaints after investigations. Of these, 287 were backlog files and 95 were fresh complaints registered during the year. 382 complaints were closed for various reasons, including successful mediations, insufficient evidence, receipt of remedy by the complainant, requests from the complainants, referral to other institutions, cautioning of respondent and not revealing any human rights violation. Other reasons included merging of files, failure to trace respondents and death of complainant” (UHRC, P: 17, 2016).

Human Rights 17.11.15

Outstanding compensation from Attorney General to the Tribunal:

“Therefore, the UGX 758,552,86813 that MoJCA paid as compensation to victims of human rights violations in 2015 did not cover any beneficiary of the complaints decided by the Commission during the period 2013 to 2015 (refer to Annex A). As of 31st December 2015, the outstanding awards against the Attorney General was UGX 5,047,671,968 (Uganda shillings five billion, forty seven million, six hundred seventy one thousand, nine hundred sixty eight)” (UHCR, P:31, 2016). Here is the reason for the delayed compensation of the awarded through the tribunal: “Delayed payment of Tribunal awards. Respondents, especially the Attorney General, take long to pay tribunal awards. Although the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs has argued that this is mainly due to limited budgetary allocations, UHRC has realised that the delay is sometimes caused by the bureaucratic processes that require the respective state attorney to form the first opinion on whether to appeal or clear payment of the award. This has caused untold delays, especially in cases where the state attorney may not be willing to recommend payment of the award, particularly where the Attorney General was not represented during the hearings” (UNHCR, P: 32, 2016).

Prisoners awaiting Ministerial Orders:

“K.S Awaiting ministerial order for 24 years. It was reported that he does not get visitors” (…) “B.E Awaiting ministerial order for the last 15 years” (UNHCR, P: 37, 2016).

Third Testimony:

The human rights training we attended were very helpful. I learnt that when I torture a suspect it is entirely on me and me personally…”said an officer from Kasangati Police” (UNHCR, P: 37, 2016)

A little on how the detainees and Prison conditions are:

Many places don’t have transport for suspects of crime, they are taken random by public transport in places like Kole, Erute, Lira, Anyeke, Otuke, Pece and Kinene. With this result on place as well: “At Kamwenge and Bigere police posts, suspects were transported to court and back on bodaboda at a cost of UGX 60,000” (UNHCR, P: 44, 2016). Also inaccurate salaries and compensation of Police officers: “At Buganikere police post, an officer had not received salary since December 2013 and at Hima police station, five staff members had missed their salary of September 2015. At Rwangara police post, staff could not easily access salary because the bank was far away and they would have to incur transport costs” (UNHCR, P: 44, 2016). Even lacking basic structures is a problem at Police Post, Police Stations and Prison cells: “Detention facilities that did not have adequate water for sanitation and personal hygiene included Kiboga, Kasangati and Rubanda prisons, as well as Buseruka Police Post and Nakaloke and Bunkhongo police stations” (UNHCR, P: 51, 2016). When it comes to sleeping facility for detainees: “UHRC found that 234 out of the 896 detention facilities inspected did not have adequate beddings; so, detainees used either tattered blankets, mats or pieces of papers. This was observed in 41 prisons, 192 police detention facilities and one military detention place inspected. These facilities included: Mutufu and Ngora prisons; Ngai, Iceme, Aber, Kwera and Kangai police posts; as well as Dokolo, Otuke (adult cells), Agawata, Adwari and Olilim police stations” (UNHCR, P: 52, 2016).

AGEWATCH-summary-of-summary

The Senior Citizens Grants for Empowerment roll-out plan:

UHRC noted with concern that although 1.2 million people in Uganda were aged 65 years and qualify for the SAGE programme, only 123,260 were benefiting. However, in August 2015, the government announced the roll-out plan of the SAGE programme to 40 more districts across the country over the next five years, beginning with 20 in the FY 2015/16 and subsequently adding five districts every year for the next four years until FY 2019/20” (UNHCR, P: 103, 2016).

Digital Privacy:

“There were allegations of infection by malicious software of communication devices belonging to various individuals, including journalists, believed to be instigated by state agents.156 It is alleged that once infected with this software, a person’s computer or phone could instantly be remotely monitored; passwords, files, microphones and cameras could be viewed and manipulated without the owner’s knowledge” (UNHRC, P: 141, 2016).

On the General Election:

“UHRC noted reports of the overzealousness and selective application of EC guidelines by the UPF, leading to their alleged interference in and denial of some campaign rallies, prevention of opposition accident victims from accessing a health centre for treatment, prevention of people from attending opposition rallies, violently dispersing opposition rallies and injuring supporters; and the arrest of opposition officials and confiscation of opposition materials such as manifestos. It is worth noting that the UPF took action on some of its errant officers and instituted investigations into the incidents” (…) “There were concerns about the alleged discriminatory nature in the way political players enjoyed rights and freedoms of assembly, movement and personal liberty, which did not, in many cases, favour opposition leaders during the electoral period” (…) “Although UHRC noted positive developments, such as strengthened internal mechanisms in political parties, the successful nomination of presidential, parliamentary and various candidates at the local government, and introduction of new technology, such as SMS and the online system, there were challenges that still hindered the realisation of the right to vote. UHRC also noted that some of the challenges identified during the previous elections, such as the timely review of electoral laws, had not been addressed in the run-up to the 2016 elections. In addition, UHRC notes that there is need to address evolving challenges, such as lack of internal democratic party processes, the emergence of crime preventers and militia during the electoral period, and the varied interpretation of laws, in order to ensure that the right to vote is realized” (UNHRC, P: 169- 172, 2016).

UPF 2008 Torture

Proposed amendment of the 48 hour rule:

“There have been proposals to amend Article 23 (4), which prescribes for the production of a detained person to court within 48 hours from the time of his or her arrest, on grounds that the prescribed 48 hours is insufficient to bring a person to court” (… ) ” UHRC, therefore, recommends that:

  • Article 23 (4) should be retained and priority placed on enhancing the investigative capacity of the Uganda Police Force” (UHRC, P: 203-204).

Uganda Police Force should urgently address the issue of detention of suspects without files. If there are no files or charges against them, they should be released:

UHRC made this recommendation to the UPF in 2013. In 2015, the UPF informed UHRC that police commanders and officers in the Criminal Intelligence and Investigative Directorate (CIID) were tasked to ensure that whenever suspects are arrested, files should be compiled, proper and timely investigations carried out, and the necessary procedure followed to take the suspects to court immediately. With the establishment of the Directorate of Human Rights and Legal Services at police headquarters and the deployment of regional human rights officers in 16 regions, this problem was partially addressed” (UNHRC, P: 223, 2016).

Aftermath: 

Here you saw the definition of Human Rights issues, there we’re even more labor questions and education on Human Rights. The certainty is the levels of force from the Uganda Police Force (UPF) and Uganda People’s Defense Force (UPDF) that are extending themselves into the citizens sphere and not being there to create security; instead breaching the levels of trust from the security organization and the citizens.

If you feel I left something behind, please put it in the commentary. This is for me the most important details; I couldn’t pick it all; as there we’re many breaches and many questionable actions towards the citizens that could be posted today. Because this is close to 2000 words, but the report are 296 pages. So the amount of details in the report could fill many pages more and a bigger article. This here is just a hunch of the breaches that the government and their institutions are doing, also the missing pieces to the laws and the institutions that’s securing the rights of the citizens. Peace.

Government conspiracy against the FDC continues; as Hon. Kabaziguruka are charged with ‘Treachery’ at Makindye Military Court!

Makindye Military Court 28.06.2016

Even as the 10th Parliament is starting and continuing to vetting the new Members of Parliament, as the Parliamentary recently said that Ugandans should put the country, before the Party; though the irony is that the Executive controls the Parliament and the NRM caucus and therefore validation of speaking alone and making decisions on their own in the NRM, is a laugh or a banana flies flying around the dying banana. The same feeling I have today.

As there are other movement that is actually interesting as the lies of the Parliament and sham of Electoral Process, doesn’t cover the aftermath of the General Election of 2016. In this mayhem of deceit as the Uganda Police Force and Army have shuffled their way and made FDC activists and leaders criminals. Still, with this in mind, some of the FDC MPs are still talking about possible ability to make a difference in Parliament. That is another laugh, but in sadness instead of satire as the NRM MPs are not told what to vote or paid to vote by the Executive.

With this all in mind while Dr. Kizza Besigye is still in the midst of lots of litigations. Where he is going back and forth to court, and in this connection with his ‘Treason’ charge against the state; the State have produced another vindictive person in the FDC, the newly elected MP for Nakawa Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka that we’re charged with offences ‘Relating to Security and Treachery’. This happens as he was taken to Makindye Military Court by Keefesi guards and have heavy toll by security personnel in the two recent months. While they have either kept him in house-arrest, kidnapped him to SIU Kireka and also raided his home near Lake Victoria.

While this is happening many of the other FDC NEC and FDC MPs are not shedding a tear for the doubt of the future of the so-called conspiracy to topple the Executive. This is happening while the justice of the man is not well kept, as the family has not been able to even meet Hon. Kabaziguruka.

Hon. Michael

This is a plot to get rid of the man who won over the former Attorney General Fred Ruhindi of the National Resistance Movement. As he just happen to get the MP position in Parliament, something that the ruling regime cannot handle and therefore done everything in their power to sabotage and make him a giant criminal. So they had to take him to General Court Martial and build together the strange activity of the State in barracks around the country, as they have turned on their own forces to clear the ship for the son of the Executive, Major General Muhoozi. So they can make up and forge intelligence that make Gulu, Lira and Makindye actions into the pot and call it a feast of the tongue.

So if Mzee thinks he is smart, if Mzee thinks his use of IGP Kayihura in political activity and the ways they are creating a ‘unlawful’ activity and claiming conspiracy, they are screaming wolf, and the villagers are listening… they are crying ‘wolf’ again, the villagers still listen; but if they do it the third time, the villagers will not listen and turn away, even if it is really a WOLF.

Mzee have done this before, Besigye have been charged with treason before and the PRA bluff are now history, as the Mzee tries yet again to consolidate all power of the country, as the weakness of opposition and the central leadership of the opposition is up for grabs. Mzee knows this and uses the Police and Courts to create a fear and control the other parties with that fear, as Hon. Kabaziguruka and Besigye as examples of what he can within his power. Peace.

Hon. Kabaziguka detained at SIU Kireka: ‘charged with alleged planning a serious conspiracy’

 

Michael Kabaziguka

“When I set out to challenge the dictatorship, I knew that I will have two homes. One that I built myself and prison”Dr. Kizza Besigye

Hon. Michael Kabaziguka have been taken from his home earlier today, as there rumors out there; that he has been charged with both “possession of a fire-arm” or a “gun”, and also that he ‘planning to assassinate’ the President of the Ugandan Republic, H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Even some parts of it is in the same level of Besigye, as they are charging him with “Treason against the State”.  So the rumors are heavy on this one.

What could be the reason for doing it: 

They are surely doing this, as they are into doing this as they want to make his Member of Parliament status invalid and reinstate Fred Ruhindi, their loyal Attorney General of the 9th Parliament… As this is all political and Hon. Kabaziguka is not a common criminal, just a guy who actually are more popular than Fred Ruhindi and that eats the NRM Regime, therefore he has been house-arrested and tried to shut him up since the election.

That newly elected Forum for Democratic Change Member of Parliament is detained at SIU Kireka, as they are now questioning him and also detaining him there.

Enage 02.03.2016

Police Statement today:

“The circumstances under which they (the MP and another person) were arrested are very sensitive, and although we cannot divulge any further details at this stage for fear of jeopardizing our investigations, we can only confirm to you that the suspects are helping us with investigations, into some very serious offences that involve other suspects as well,” said Mr Enanga in a statement dated June 8 (Daily Monitor, 08.06.2016).

But as they already have had him under house-arrest for long time after the 11th of May 2016, he surely been monitored and have the intelligence they could get out of a, but certainly the allegations… that CP Enaga is a “Serious Offence” that involves other “suspects”. That means that this is a political motivated detained and alleged crime, as the UPF does what they can to take down the FDC by any means; the same they been working on with Dr. Kizza Besigye and now does with others who are connected to his leadership, as is Hon. Kabaziguka, other men of the FDC like FDC Secretary Harold Kaija been taken there and so many others. So the Political Oppression in Uganda is at all time high and continues while Mzee claims no need to be learn anything about ‘democracy’; let me say one thing.

BTW: If there were any fire-arms that was unregistered in his home, I would believe it was planted by certain Police Officers to make-up charges and reasons for detaining the opposition Politican; as he has a moral and ethical posisiton and he is not yet bought by the Musevenist in Parliament. Therefore they have to silence him by any means.

Mzee, have certainly forgotten everything the lectures he during the University in 1970s in Dar-Es-Salaam, since he knows detains right and left. As with now the men and woman who spoke ‘Defiance’ over ‘resistance’ are no getting detained, as Mzee want to set the record straight. Peace.
