Opinion: It’s total silence not defiance anymore

Dr. Kizza Besigye Quote Outspend

The Campaign of Defiance is dead, because the compliance has sunk the ship of Defiance that we’re ushered in with the Presidential Campaign of 2015/2016 of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and for the Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye. The rigged and fraudulent election went down, the President since 1986 President Yoweri Museveni triggered election victory with 100% in dozens of districts and acted vicious in others; that are known opposition strongholds like Kampala, Wakiso and others. Therefore the FDC and Besigye should have and could have grievances on the methods of suppression of the votes.

Besigye’s campaign of defiance was a grand idea in the darkness of an oppressive regime under the National Resistance Movement. The NRM has for decades and during previous elections used public funds, used the state and security organizations to spread fear instead of free and fair election. As well as hiring fellow cronies in the Electoral Commission that we’re working directly on orders for the Movement instead of securing the popular vote, as well as using the Police Force and the Army to show where the loyalty should be, also gifts of soaps, food and small fees to take part of rallies in the districts. This has been NRMs way of spreading loyalty and fear mixed together.

So the Defiance campaign was a good idea, to defy the rigged system and state apparatus that has eaten the whole plate and only follows orders of loyal cronies of Museveni. That in itself was genuine and straight-forward plan from Besigye, only if more of the citizens and the party he was apart of really believed in it. As with time the defying plans has been silenced, the fighting the machine and corrupt behaviour of the state has turned silent.

MbabaziTDA110915P1

The FDC and the defiance after the failing Election Petition of the Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi in Supreme Court, the FDC and Besigye hasn’t had the levels of defiance in them or tried to defy the structures that validates the regime. The FDC has turned into compliance as the swearing-in of Museveni happen and the Members of Parliament we’re sworn-in after the fraudulent election. It was topped when certain MPs went into Shadow-Parliament and legitimized the Movement.

So with this the FDC themselves did comply with Museveni and his fellow cronies instead of defying the ruler. They went into the chambers made sure they got paid and later trying to follow the lead of Besigye isn’t believable. That the same men and woman who easily take the small-change at the Parliament and later goes to FDC Prayers is playing to games.

The Short-Con is the Shadow-Cabinet and validating the rule of Museveni to make sure their pockets are filled and that their MPs respectability is fixed so their families and friends are secured. But with this they are forgetting the long-term damage to be parts of Movements skin-democracy.

The Long-Con is that with the sharing parts of the skin-democracy and playing the game of the freedom fighters while not really working the cause. So the long-con is some of the FDC leadership roles right now, only patching the hurt, but not trying to rebuild.

FDC 05.05.2016 Planned March

The Defiance Campaign was about defying the Movement… something that the FDC didn’t do, which is complicated and also lacking of moral support from the FDC while he was serving time in Moroto and Luzira. They might show up to gates of the prison and even say publicly that they condemn the Police Force actions against the democratic and rights to assemble as an opposition party.

So the plan of Defiance wasn’t supposed to be one-man band, Besigye wasn’t supposed to carry it on his own. Besigye weren’t alone as we could see youths, P-10 Groups and FDC-Diaspora we’re supportive efforts. You had and still have Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and Gen. David Sejusa. Still, they have very few others who have been under fire at the same level without trading their souls, there is Ingrid Turinawe and Doreen Nyanjura has fought battles without much to gain.

That the silence in general should be worrying as the Police Force are continuing to battle with Besigye, his house is still besieged and the man is monitored every movement. If he breaks the barrier and creates public excitement, than it’s straight into detention or police brutality cases towards the crowds that surge the man.

Besigye should be free, the country should be free, but the silence isn’t saving anything. The silence has settled the defiance campaign and the mentality of the defiance agenda. They didn’t build momentum enough to stop the daily life and hurt the business of the movement. The defiance didn’t stop the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) from collecting VAT or stop exports of fuel. The Defiance didn’t stop the UPDF from getting new recruits or any other possible monetary deficiency the campaign could do. Just like the shops stopping trading as the shop-keepers we’re even detained for doing so, because it hurt the taxation and trade that the Movement needs to run their merry-go-round of graft and embezzlement of public funds.

The Defiance could have worked if the FDC and Besigye had gotten the momentum and had the public will behind them, not the half-ready pile of work, sort of like the way the Police Force in Uganda picks up intelligence as they see fit in forged police case. The FDC could have used the anger and frustration of the public, the citizens who feel used.

So the May Protest this year we’re starting of profound messages that the citizens we’re on the road of pressing the government. So much we’re ready as they remembered the recent thieving of their future from the Movement yet again, the wounds we’re fresh. Still the army had been in the streets, the Police Force we’re targeting the opposition and also civil society offices we’re attacked.

FDC Youth 14.03.2016

The people shouldn’t be silenced as the Christmas season are in line, the FDC cannot carry this alone, not that all of them wanted the defiance; they wanted the easy compliance life of the pseudo-opposition instead of a fighting defying organization that could get rid of the militarized movement that been running it since the 1980s. That should be KEY. That should be the goal of the FDC; instead many went into legitimizing it.

So the silenced is understandable, Besigye and his trials cannot be of only him and it isn’t, but it is many who has given in and went back to business-as-usual. Besigye could have more support from the FDC NEC, but he hasn’t. They don’t have the backbone and the wish to succeed. They gave in when it was going against the grain. They we’re risking it all and couldn’t. While Besigye is again under a “treason” charge as others who are questioning the Movement; the others are walking free and without any Court Orders in their name.

It’s not like the man who took the power by the gun want to leave silent or let it go easy, he fought a brutal bush-war. Now he has a big-army and guerrillas of M23, Museveni got allies of USA and Russia dropping arms in his favour so he can suppress his people. Citizens can fight this, but they cannot only rely on Besigye. Besigye only has power if the people are behind him. If the people are working with to dismantle the regime, but the silent obedient citizens are changing an illegitimate regime. Civil disobedience and systematic effort to discontinue the regime would be true defying the Movement. Instead the silence is what is running the tides as 2017 are coming around the corner. Peace.

[Insert a bogus charge] Besigye detained again at his home in Kasangati

besigye-31-10-2016

Another day, another empty charge, another time Dr. Kizza Besigye detained for no other reason that he is home and breathing. Like the crimes of the Forum for Democratic Charge ever has amounted to anything, because it’s all political and controlled from above. The Police in-charge knows this and uses all kind of spin-control to make it look otherwise, because they think the citizens of the Republic of Uganda is blatantly stupid and ignorant like their leadership.

Therefore as he arrived during the weekend and on Sunday morning the Police Force set their guards at the gates, as they put out metal teeth’s and such to stop cars from entering the compound of the political man. He was taken together with his famous driver Fred Kato, who has charges because of his allegiance to Besigye, but they have all been dropped. Besigye we’re also taken with Christine Behimbisa.

The black “Torture” van picked them up and the Lord Mayor of Kampala Erias Lukwago together with Farouk Mugerwa went to Naggalama Police Station and Prison in Mukono, to see if they could get him released from his detention today.

While Ingrid Turinawe, the FDC Mobiliser has been detained on the way to Kasangati and her whereabouts is still unclear as the charges for driving to Kasangati has not been written as a cardinal sin, but we can surely see that information soon coming out of the mouth of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi. I should not know the Name of Police Officers, but I do, because this arrest of FDC people has constantly and with rampant acts. Like the arrest of Doreen Nyanjura who had this Friday closed of the Kasangati for the arrival of Besigye. Because of this insult to the Police, she was detained without charges and we’re bailed out the day after.

So we all know where we are going, the NRM Regime cannot help themselves as they are on a spiral of killing innocent and rule of law to the level of fearless non-sense like this. Where they arrest people for no apparent reason than they exists and without charges, because they apparently at this day and need none. They are okay under the wings of IGP Kale Kayihura and Mzee.

The is the acts compared to Medieval kingdoms with kings who thought they we’re God and had all reason to spread their justice over all men kind or in meagre existence inside their own fiefdom. The pride that the Republic of Uganda is now the same, as it all connects to the power-hungry President who will tarnish his reputation and his legacy over continuation of these acts of impunity. He can bike around and act like road-show to try to overshadow these acts of violence against own citizens, but the truth will conquer that vile attempt of spin-control. Peace.

[Insert Stupidity from the UPF] New-confined House-Arrest of Besigye!

nbs-tv-uganda-30-10-2016

“Police have again taken over security outside Dr Kizza Besigye’s Kasangati home after a group of women blocked their access yesterday. The leader of the group said the police took over security early morning” (NBS TV Uganda, 30.10.2016).

Again the Police Force has taken the home of Dr. Kizza Besigye under siege, as he had 12 days abroad as per request and allowed to while the Government continues to work on forged allegations of treason. This continued war-path and destruction of liberty and freedom for the political leader and former presidential candidate.

This is a farce and continued presence of Police without warrant or charge on the man. The decision to house-arrest the man because of so-called intelligence of planned demonstrations with him together with comrade and loyal friend Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago in Kampala. As Hon. Beti Kamya continues to force vendors of the street and alleys while the streets are cleared with violent force of Police. That is the only thing the Police under IGP Kayihura knows anyway.

This is a continued injustice is just getting to far out of hand. I don’t know how many times I written about it, but the Penal Code and the Preventative Arrest, the Colonial Law inherited from the British have been now certainly used more by the NRM Regime, than the years under the British Lords. I am sure the record for most Preventative Arrest in Ugandan History is Dr. Kizza Besigye. That says more about the authorities than of the so-called illegal activity of Besigye. Besigye is soon not allowed to think or breathe; as no matter what he does he get detained, arrested and such.

Just like Doreen Nyanjura has been detained and arrested, even tortured and not allowed food from the Police Officers at the prison. That shows the level of impunity as she just tried together with other woman that their leader should have justice and freedom as anybody else.

I am tired of the political police force and their misuse of power against civilians, political persons and others are easily picked without charges or cases to be made. That proves that injustice bounces over rule of law. Again, Again and Again! Peace.

Uganda: (Besigye & Lukwago we’re…) Planning Illegal demonstrations (30.10.2016)

Kasangati 09.05.2016

Uganda Police Force has received reliable information from intelligence sources that Dr. Kiiza Besigye, Mr. Erias Lukwago and other political actors have been mobilizing and meeting vendors who were recently removed from the city streets with the aim of staging illegal demonstrations on Monday October 31, 2016.

Uganda Police Force wishes to inform the general public that it has not received any notification concerning the planned demonstration and that any person who participates in such illegal activity commits a crime.

Police shall take all necessary measures to prevent such illegal acts and ensure that no persons disrupt the normal business life and peace in the city.

The public is cautioned not to be misled and hoodwinked by such opportunistic individuals whose agenda is to cause the breach of peace in the city.

Vendors and hawkers are advised to be patient and work with the ministry responsible for Kampala Capital City affairs to find alternative solutions.

Police Confines Besigye Again (Youtube-Clip)

“The FDC women in command, a female pressure group that on Saturday, occupied the Police check point at Dr. Kiiiza Besigye’s home in Kasangati, have lost control to police. The fearless women group lost their base when they retired last night for family obligation. Their attempt to fight back and gain control was futile as Police surrounded Besigye’s home again” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

Concerning Besigye; The Police Force of Uganda only abate their own crime, apparently!

kasangati-17-10-2016

Well, it’s one of these days. Not in the name of CP Fred Enaga where-ever he rest his shallow head; the new muppet in charge of nonsense from officials on regards of House-Arrests and illegal detaining of fellow citizens is AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi. The noble man himself we’re publicly utterin these words:

“Police is continuing to monitor and regulate the movements of Dr. Kiiza Besigye as a precautionary measure because he has openly confessed to continue carrying out his defiance campaigns. “We can not abate and aid that crime, “ said Kaweesi. He added that Dr. Besigye is not under police siege as some media houses are portraying it. If he doesn’t involve in activities that breach peace, he is a free man noting that recently, he was in Mbale and Namutumba” (Uganda Police Force, 17.10.2016).

Still, if this is not taking away the freedoms of a man having closed of his property, not allowing him to leave to go to court. Just taking him away without any reason or any charge. Than he is not free. That is not about Defiance Campaign, Defiance Campaign in that regard is a silly excuse, as silly as the excuse of a man Andrew Felix Kaweesi must feel. He is just there because it feeds him and his folks. He can be so proud of his achievement that he is defending the blistering wrongs of National Resistance Movement. The Resistance Movement are having grand issues with Defiance. If it doesn’t sink in, then nothing does!

It besieged if you are booking all guests, throwing food to ground and ransacking every individual going towards the gates of Kasangati. Can somebody please start ransacking everything moving inside and outside the house of Mr. Kaweesi? Also, block his driveway and stand guard 24/7. Then he might now what kind of activities he is sponsoring with his uttering words.

They are monitoring and regulating, but without any consideration of freedom, liberty and justice involved. There are no fresh charges and the Court Orders are now non-existent as the breeches of impunity is staggering. The defence of these activities are just foolish at this point. How can you be a free man when your home is guarded, when your moves is monitored and regulated? Maybe that is Uganda Police thing, that under the following orderly blindly IGP Kayihura is the main assets of his mean. It is certainly not wits. Not that they can understand how the laws works and how they are breaching them, while they continue to pursuit Besigye!

There is not peace and is not freedom at Kasangati in Wakiso at the moment. Nobody claim there is real justice or just behaviour from the Police Force, they way they are acting around Besigye and his property! These acts of brutality where they steal what we common folks call ordinary life. Where his guests are violated as they enter his gates; these without charges or sentencing, proves the neglect of rule of law in the grand Republic of Uganda and under the Executive, the President Museveni who currently lets his Police Force silence his opponent with guards, guns and detentions when it pleases him! Be sure that Mr. Kaweesi has answers for the nonsense, as that is his paid job. Peace.

“House-Arrested without a new Charge”: Dr. Kizza Besigye could not go to registrar at the Judge; where he were to honour his bail requirements!

besigye-17-10-2016

Again, this is again, again! The Police Force under IGP Kale Kayihura have decided with no pre-warning or added charges to house-arrest Forum for Democratic Change leader Dr. Kizza Besigye. Just because they can so, it seems. The inevitable actions of impunity and disgracing the rule of law. Here is one take on the matter!

Kizza Besigye has been stopped from going to court to fulfill part of his bail conditions as ordered by High Court Judge Masalu Musene. Besigye is supposed to report to the registrar of Criminal Division of High Court once every after two weeks” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

With this the Courts are not getting him by the registration that are supposed to be kept until further notice, as the proceedings of the case and the collection of evidence is supposed to happen simultaneously as the charged possible felon can walk and do his normal business until trial. That is not happening with Besigye, as he has to be House-Arrested in Kasangati, Wakiso. Yet, again, just like during the weekend when he been picked up the Police Force and “black-Van” the Torture Van of Kifeesi Police Squad to silence the man and his activities.

He were barred from answer and follow requests from the courts. He is isolated without any consideration to his freedoms, liberty or justice. It is containing him without any justification. The imminent question: are the any precautions rules and acts that can validate these efforts against the citizen?

We should ask that as the continued strive to keep him at bay, arrest, house arrest and detain. To tow his car home and take him to nearest police post together with loyal allies. That is what happens at any threshold of any week. The continued validation of concern of justice arise anytime he thinks of leaving home and going to do both party-work and for instance ordinary stuff as taking out shillings at the Bank.

This is just enough. They continue to arrest, thief the freedoms and liberties of random citizens, but he is not allowed the same. The double Standard that was evident during the General Election is at standstill now after the ballot is cast and sworn-in 10th Parliament. If this does show how weak and fragile the current government is that they without question, without charges are detaining fellow citizens and the ones not fearing the restrictions coming from doing so. We can only a matter of time ask ourselves if the people can accept one of their own are harassed and tortured in this manner. That none of what think is ordinary is there, because the Security Organizations are there to detain and house arrest you at any point and have the Torture Van to pick you up to Nagalama Police Station in Mukono if you ever think of leaving. Peace

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.

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

Museveni Kenya Speech 2016

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

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

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

Betty Amongi Jimmy Akena Statehouse 21.06.2016

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

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

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

Ken Lukyamuzi

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

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

Besigye Nakawa 18.05.2016

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