Very annoyed but not frustrated, very weak but not down, very hungry but not ready to eat, i resolved with courage and determination to die of hunger but not Poison. I was certain it was the only defiance Tool that would help me communicate my where a bouts with my People. For two days and two nights! I did not taste even a spoon of water in Nakasongola police cells. At the same time, I loudly demanded to eat and I wld only eat food From home.
Yesterday at around 11am An exchange, started, very hot and loud! It was between the ‘arresters’ and the ‘keepers’, issue was About the ‘kept’- ” come, take your woman away, or call her family to bring her food, or else we release her to go now. We cannot keep a suspect who is not eating, not in our custody! She will not die Here”
I overheard this Exchange which went on repeatedly . At midnight, the arresters arrived.. I did not even imagine a whole trained Police officer at the rank of DPC would open a female cell to hand her over to some goons at such time. I protested and opted to remain with my hunger as mosquitoes feed on me than enter that van. This time it dint work! I was forcefully thrown into van- yes, very worried and not aware of what they wld do to me, i was Driven at a neck breaking speed. Deep in night from Nakasongola to kireka. At 3 am i was entered into the suspects entry Book (back dated), they signed me in and asked me to sign out (at the same time). They gave me BOND, drove me up to my gate at 4am.
NOW, – you camped outside my home and arrested me as soon as left, where or when did i incite violence? – In which area of jurisdiction did i commit the offence in order to get me detained in nakasongola . – why detain me in nakasongola but charge me in Kireka? -As a suspect, dont I have rights to have my People know where Im detained? My lawyer? My family? Any way, No turning back!
Today the Uganda Police Force in Nakasongola district has followed the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) convoy for the presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye. He we’re not allowed to watch the situations of the schools or other public buildings. They we’re shut down by Police. The Highway Police force we’re following the FDC Convoy. DPC Charles Nsamba have been busy ordering his troops around and following the FDC men and their campaign trail, as they are seemingly committed to attend and follow the public rallies they have.
He was visiting water-wells to check the water quality and the police didn’t stop him. Where he we’re proving the point that water the people of Nakasongala is drinking, are the same as the ones that animals drinking. And it doesn’t look to clean or sanitized. This was a stop near Migyera town in the district.
In Migerya town the NRM People couldn’t help themselves, they tried to get the boda-boda drivers to shun the rallies and public event of the FDC convoy. They we’re getting paid if they didn’t ride around and gotten people to the event. Also a free yellow t-shirt by the NRM organizer; when the money didn’t come from the NRM organizer! They pleaded with FDC leaders to get paid… while tucking away the yellow t-shirts. Because they needed money for fuel, but the plea didn’t leave to anything and they left the plot in Migerya town. So they we’re trying to be doubled paid that day and still do ordinary work.
He also visited the Kitalaganya landing site where it’s visible that the state of the water is not good and far from clean.
Reports from this district earlier last year in 7th October 2015:
“Nakasongola district is struggling to attract and retain teachers as the staff turnover persists leaving the education sector in turmoil. Records from Nakasongola District Education Department show that there are only 133 out of the 285 required secondary school teachers in the district” (Radio Buddu 98,8 and 95,5).
And a report that is to interesting not address while we’re in Nakasongola district:
That this trucks that drives from Hoima through Nakasongola where a helicopter comes and picks it up! This a business done by President to sell oil-blocks shaded in transports saying – “hazardous waste” and amidst broad day light. A truck like this have 20 blocks of oil or more. The company who earns on the business is Great Lakes Company (From a great source).
We can see that this is an interesting district. All the projects that I have looked through in the Nakasongola have been subsidized from foreign donors. So if the Government of Uganda have done anything in the area, they have been funded by donor money and not by own tax-base. That is something to think about, especially with the water-crisis and steady issues with drought in Nakasongola. Time for the Nakasongola District to get enough teachers’ so there people can learn from the past and make a better future. Peace.
