The Government of the Republic of Botswana is once again very alarmed by the reported crimes against humanity and humanitarian catastrophe that continue to take place unabated in the Syrian Arab Republic. Many of these murderous acts are perpetrated by President Assad, his illegitimate regimes and allies. We are deeply moved by recent images of injured civilians, including women and children in this savage and senseless war. Botswana is also dismayed by increasing reports on the use of chemical agents against the civilian population in Allepo by the Assad Regime.
The Government of Botswana wishes to make an appeal, for the sake of humanity, that all parties to the conflict cease indiscriminate attacks on civilians, including civilian infrastructure and medical facilities. We further call on the Assad Regime to allow immediate and sustained humanitarian access to all people in need, throughout Syria, in accordance with UN resolutions. The international community has allowed the Syrian people to suffer.
The United Nations Security Council has failed dismally in its mandate to lead international efforts to find a lasting solution to the crisis, and to protect the vulnerable population in this conflict. We cannot just standby and do nothing, for history will judge us harshly. We therefore, urge all parties to the conflict, and other members of the international community, to promote and support a political settlement in Syria.
We further urge all States who are increasingly being drawn into this conflict to stop any material or financial support to groups designated as terrorist organisations.
Today again, after the Kasangati Magistrate Court decided over night to send the court petition to Criminal Division Kampala North. This here is another detail into the compiling case of criminal activity against the Presidential Candidate and the opposition leader of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC). That has been over the edge and continuing disregard for justice for anybody else than Mzee and his elite click in the NRM. Just read his day’s quote!
Today’s message for CP Enaga:
“Even after court ruling, we’ll pull a few metres away from Besigye’s home, but we’ll not leave completely” (…)”Police stated they want Dr. Besigye to disown the defiance message he has been preaching before and after elections” (Issa, 2016).
This here proves the disregard for justice and lawfulness that are in the country as the Police and Army can do as they please and use any kind of excuses to not care for civility or justice for fellow countrymen. Even if the courts and by understanding of law justifies them to leave the home of Dr. Kizza Besigye, they will still monitor him and keep him under siege as he felon.
I find it ironic that they still have issues with the message of defying the government and state, while they are arresting the people’s president and the people who do not need security organizations to keep the things in order. The message he sends is conflicting as his breadwinner is under the flag of NRM, which is a Resistance Movement. Resistance is a stronger an profound stronger word in the sense; then the trouble that the Police Force has with the defying aspect and the Defiance. So they better get their minds right, or even their arguments straight. Because it is non-sense at this point; since the Police fear Kizza Besigye, for his legitimacy as leader compared to their breadwinner Mzee who in the shadows orders the arrangements together with the IGP Kayihura who follows orders from the top like a blind dog.
They will continue with road-blocks and secure the premises as he is kept on short leach and proves the little value as a security outfit the Police Force has, as they have to use militarized activities towards civilians. Peace.
