With deep mourning, International Justice Mission (IJM) today announced that three individuals associated with the organization, including staff member, Willie Kimani, IJM client, Josephat Mwenda, and taxi driver, Joseph Muiruri, were killed following their abduction in Nairobi on June 23rd.

The bodies of the deceased were found in the Ol-Donyo Sabuk River to the northeast of Nairobi on July 1, following an extensive search led by Kenyan police and IJM staff. The group went missing on Thursday, June 23, as they were returning to their homes following a court hearing. No arrests have been made.

“We are deeply mourning the loss of our colleague, Willie, our client, Josephat, and taxi driver, Joseph, and strongly condemn the perpetrators of these murders and the horrific violence inflicted upon these men,” said Gary Haugen, CEO of International Justice Mission. “IJM exists to protect the poor from violence, and Willie’s life was taken while courageously pursuing that mission. As we work to provide comfort and support for the families of Willie, Josephat, and Joseph, we are grateful to the U.S. embassy, the local Kenyan police, and our partners globally and on the ground who responded swiftly and professionally to our requests for help. We are deeply grateful to our colleagues on the ground who bravely worked in dangerous conditions to try to locate these men, and we are as committed as ever to our IJM Kenya team and to their struggle for justice in their nation. We will seek justice for Willie, Josephat, and Joseph, and will not cease in pursuit of this case until that end is secured.”

IJM is closely collaborating with Kenyan local and national law enforcement officials who are leading the ongoing investigation.

Within hours of learning of the incident, IJM leadership activated crisis response teams in Nairobi as well as Washington, DC, to work closely with police officials on the ground and to support the families involved.

IJM’s focus moving forward is to ensure the safety of the families and staff affected by this crime and provide necessary support to law enforcement officials during this critical time.

Kenya Police Service Statement on the ‘Disapperance’ of Kinuthia, Muiruri and Mwenda (01.07.2016)

Kenya Police Statement 01.07.2016 P1Kenya Police Statement 01.07.2016 P2

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.

Side-Note 2 – Dr. Kizza Besigye Statement on KCCA ACT and UPF actions yesterday:

“Dr. KIZZA BESIGYE’S STATEMENT ON KCCA AMENDMENTS.

I was made aware immediately by my aides of the sad events that happened in Kampala yesterday, well that was quite obviously expected”.

“In the course of this electoral process, we are going to have similar incidents because!, first of all, we have in place an incompetent and partisan Electoral Commission. The Electoral Commission has already made blunders and caused confusion by dancing to the tunes of the dictatorship, its evident they are preoccupied with changing the rules of the game in the middle of the game”.

“The changing of the electoral laws in the middle of the election is illegal, hence the Electoral Commission has become a willing partner in commission of these illegalities. Therefore for the electoral commission to issue a statement stopping the nomination and election of the Lord Mayor on mere speculation that the laws are being amended is utterly disgraceful and questionable. The Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago was duly elected but the dictatorship and police have in most cases with violence obstructed him from serving the people who elected him”.

“Therefore in accordance to the philosophy of my campaign of wining by defiance, I not only condemn the actions of the Executive, the Electoral Commission and the Police who continue to commit crimes, but will shall rally the citizens to resist them”.

“The attack on journalists is deplorable and criminal act ,it must stop. The perpetrators must know that they will be answerable individually or collectively. In the demonstration of civil disobedience through the now empowered citizens the Junta was able to rescind their intention to block the nomination of Lord mayor Lukwago. I recognize that the refusal by the Lord Mayor and his supporters to surrender to the dictator is the first victory of our strategy of winning by defiance and not by compliance”.

“Therefore in winning by defiance and not compliance , I urge whole the forces of pro-democracy, pro- change and above all the people of Kampala to turn up and offer massive support to the Lord mayor Erias Lukwago as he goes in for his nomination tomorrow the 18th November”.

“We shall move on with the strategy , sensitize the whole country and we shall ultimately liberate ourselves. For God and my country.

Dr. Kizza Besigye”.

The Media Council of Kenya strongly condemns the alleged shooting, by police, of a  journalist in Uganda. The journalist, Isaac Kugonza, working with a private station, Delta TV, was on Monday allegedly shot on the head and is fighting for his life in Mulago National Referral hospital. From press reports, Isaac is the third journalist to be shot while covering political events in less than two months. Others who were shot last month are Matovu Enock of NTV and Ivan Vincent Mukisa of Radio One. It’s astonishing and disgraceful for the government of Uganda and President Yoweri Museveni’s regime in particular. It is a sad period for the journalism fraternity in the region. We urge Ugandan authorities to investigate and bring to book those behind this cowardly act. For democracy to prevail, journalists should never be intimidated or harassed in their line of duty. Such acts undermine freedom of the media and democracy in the region.

Haron Mwangi,PhD Chief Executive Officer and Secretary to the Council
