FDC opens up for an audit of Presidential Election of 2016: However, I doubt Mzee will ever do it!

The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) dropped today a report on the first 100 days of Patrick Oboi Amuriat as the Party President. This is a transparent and open move, to show what is happening behind the scenes, also show what they are doing at Najjanankubi Headquarters. It isn’t just mere hearsay, but recorded for the future to back-into the promises made and the building of party organization. This show resiliance, but also strength in the midst of oppression.

The paragraph that catched my eye was this one:

Review of the initiatives on 2016 Election Audit process

A number of development partners and donor agencies have been met to highlight what went wrong in the Presidential elections of 2016. The failure of government to implement recommended electoral reforms and the rushed and forceful amendment of the constitution were addressed to the country’s

partners. The Party is persuaded about the reluctance by Mr. Museveni to agree to an Audit of the 2016 Presidential elections outcome. Whereas we are open to dialogue, we wish to maintain our demand that this will only be based on the Audit of 2016 Presidential Election being on top of the Agenda” (FDC, P: 10, 2018).

After a hurdle of an election, a rigged affair with a math question, a questionable equation that doesn’t fit the numbers. That is what the Electoral Commission dropped in favor of the National Resistance Movement and the President for Life Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Therefore, the lines here from the FDC. Says a lot about the stalemate, that the lacking care and the forced changes of the Constitution with the Amendment, that gave him life presidency. That has been more vital for the regime, than making sure there is provisions for free- and fair election.

The FDC knows that the NRM will not audit or have serious look into the General Election and the Presidential Election of 2016, because the NRM knows what the result will be. Therefore, the agenda of the FDC will not change the matter. The ghost of the past will come out and scare Museveni in his sleep. He has stolen and rigged a victory. That the donor agencies and development partners have gotten information is fine, but they are still supporting and working directly with the NRM. They have not stopped being partners with Museveni, even if they know that he has stolen it. The NRM rigged it and took the Republic for a ride.

The wish for dialogue with Musevni, will only end-up in fashion of Nairobi-talks of the past. Museveni will never accept to lose, he might play, but he will end on top. If not there isn’t anything in it for him. The President is only in it if he gets to eat and be the king. If the President isn’t king, than he will not accept anything. He knows that it was rigged and it was rigged on his orders. Therefore, an audit cannot happen, because then the obvious rigging will be exposed.

So, POA and FDC can wish for dialogue on this, but they are losing the premise. I think they know that, but it shows character that it is mentioned nevertheless. Peace.


Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) – ‘OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT – 100 DAYS’ (19.03.2018)


Opinion: Government Whip Nankabirwa claims Museveni is God-Sent, I beg to differ!

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:14 (KJV).

Another day, another drama, and another praise that is out of bound with scripture. This was normal in the last years of the rule of Robert Mugabe. Now the National Resistance Movement (NRM) are turning to the scripts of ZANU-PF. It is sad to see it, because it show how cult like the party is. How they are spending narratives to build Museveni into almighty and transcendent spirit, that has all right to rule forever. I am waiting for the time, when they say he can run for President when he is already dead. Because that happen in the case of Mugabe and now the path of NRM is similar. Seriously, this has happen elsewhere and now the NRM is copying. Really really, sad state of Affairs, but lets judge it for a moment.

““He is a very devoted man. Like Jesus, he left the comforts of the world and decided to use his life to help Ugandans out of poverty and misery,” said the government whip” (Tugume, 2018).

I don’t know about you, but the Chief Government Whip Ruth Nankabirwa has another view of what it measns to leave the comforts of world, when rough estimates by several sources in 2016, estimated the net wealth of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to be about $4bn. Which by converting it to the Uganda shillings it is: UGX 14,627,996,745,075 or over 14 Trillion Uganda Shillings. The total of the 2017/2018 Yearly Budget for the whole Republic was 29 trillion Shillings. Meaning he has the estimated amount of cash, which is half of the State Budget. Your not leaving poorly or leaving beneath the level of office. When your having an amassed wealth that could be close to half of the State Budget. That isn’t the initial wealth, because what is hidden beyond the books, beyond knowledge and what is subsidiaries run by straw-men is hard to know the total liabilities and estates owned by the President. I doubt the estimates from 2016 is accurate, but it gives a feeling. Therefore the devotion is not really, it is get rich-scheme.

She told residents that now that Parliament had removed the only hurdle for people with stamina Museveni to run for President, She and other women around the country would ask him to run again in 2023. “Women in the country are set for war with President Museveni to ask him to stand again in 2023. It is the belief of Ugandan women that this man is God-sent. We know that he will not disobey God.” (Tugume, 2018).

We knew that this was coming, the Age Limit abolished from the 1995 Constitution, as the Article 102(b) was taken away, therefore, the National Resistance Movement and the ones around him. Are doing their best to make sure he can run again. If not they wouldn’t have acted as they did in 2017 and also now after in 2018.

If you ever wonder, the Musevenist are strong and they starting to use similar fashion and rhetoric, like they did in Zimbabwe. They are now starting to making the President Godly, just like the ZANU-PF and the G-40 did to Mugabe. The only difference is that the President is Ugandan and not Zimbabwean. It is the same kind of revolutionary party that is eating itself and becoming its own enemy. Now that the President is God sent.

How can a man like the President be God sent? Did he come from the gates of Heaven with 27 Guns and reinvented salvation with the bullets and with the killings in Luweero? There are so many questionable actions and orders by Museveni, when did they become blessed by the Almighty? He has done vicious and vindictive things? There haven’t been much mercy or grace by him? Museveni if you turn against him, he destroys you. That is more of the devils work and out of Jobs Book, than out of any of the book of the Gospel’s. Since the forgiveness and mercy comes on those asking God, because of the acts of Jesus, that offer redemption to the human kind. Therefore, it is hard to see the significant similarities with Museveni. Who hasn’t saved any or if he has it has been done for his own goodwill, if anyone has ambition he will retribution and discipline them.

It is insulting to the intelligence, to the believers in the Republic to put this in order of God and Jesus. Putting Museveni in the same regard, when he hasn’t acted as a Noble man himself. He can be forgiven by God if he asks it and wants redemption. That is up to God to decide on the day of judgment, but as fellow human being. He has to answer for the violations, the thievery and the assault on the Republic as a President. Whose now serving for life and not planning to step down.

The Chief Government Whip Nankabirwa is wrong, he is not heaven sent, neither is he hell-bound. That is up to God to decide not me, but I can tell, that he is not choir-boy and an innocent Executive and Commander-in-Chief. President Museveni has enough dirt on his hand, to ever to be able to just wash it off. He has to answer those, people can try to deflect everything and try to alter the image, but that doesn’t make it true. Peace.

Opinion: The NRM need to send Snoop’s Gummy Bear Army to the next By-Election!

There is something seriously wrong the National Resistance Movement (NRM), it is so systemic, so rampant and self-destructive, even more than 50 Cent. It is as if the NRM needs to find itself out and understand what it is. Because right now, they are trying to blindfold the public, trying to subdue the masses and lie on a grand scale. They are trying to put all blame on the opposition that won, when they ordered the soldiers into the streets. When they put the police in-charge and detained over 50 Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) activists and Campaign Officials. It is time to look at it 20/20 and get a new perspective, because right now, it is dumb, dumb dumb and dumber.

Time for the NRM to use the Sour Patch Kids of Method Man to dance on the tables, even use the Gummy Bear Army of Snoop Dogg from the Katie Perry song back-in-the-day. Because this is not cool anymore. That the party using intimidation, the ones collectively pre-ticketing ballots are complaining about the FDC. After they lost, a fourth round in a row they lost in Jinja East Constituency.

It is vindictive and very rare moment, that the by-elections swings this way, most of them has gone in favour of NRM. The one most significant before this was Kyadondo East, where Bobi Wine won the election over a NRM candidate. Therefore, this is a blow to the supremacy, but it was a narrow escape, in Kyadondo, the numbers was with such a margin the NRM couldn’t rig it, even if they tried. They did, but the public wouldn’t have it, just like they didn’t in Jinja East.

If the NRM should complain about the narrative of the fraudulent affair from the FDC. Why did none of them end behind bars? Why did none of them have issues with the soldiers? Why did they do whatever? They even pre-ticket ballots to the staggering numbers of 8,000 for their candidate, while walking away like nothing. Therefore, it is hard to defend that the FDC did something wrong, other than contesting and actually proving that they have the public behind them.

It is hard to take the NRM serious in this matter, when they are attacking the FDC for the same reasons, everyone else could question the state. The misuse of the police, the soldiers should be evident enough, that the state was ready and spent massive fortunes to win it. While the FDC hold campaign rallies and had help from FDC Central Executive Committee, as they camped there the week ahead. That is natural, when the NRM shots off all cylinders to take it.

It is time for the NRM to send the Gummy Bears, if they want to cry foul, not send highly trained military personnel into a civilian area, unless they want to cease local government and annex it directly to the State House. It just don’t make sense, the amounts of mambas and soldiers. Therefore, the NRM Secretary General Lumumba, should just have delivered the petition to the court and get a fifth round in Jinja East. Which, they will also loose, because their man isn’t any good. That is why the President want him just to sleep in the parliament and send him to India if he get sick.

Send the Gummy Bears and stop the nonsense. Peace.


Jinja East By-Election: Gen. Mugisha Muntu Statement (16.03.2018)


Jinja East By-Election: NRM Press Statement (16.03.2018)


Jinja East By-Election: FDC Candidate Paul Mwiru won the seat again and it wasn’t easy!

For the fourth time, the Forum for Democratic Change Paul Mwiru won the seat in Jinja East By-Election today. Earlier in the day it was dark, it was bleak, not because he lacks public support. The rallies has been packed and the support of the citizens been there. The police and the army was all out, they were doing the work of the National Resistance Movement (NRM). It would have expected to move it in favor of the NRM Candidate Nathan Igeme Nabeta. By the standard of things, the Electoral Commission would cook the numbers together with the pre-ticked ballots and proclaim Nabeta the winner. Because that would fit President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. However, the social media, the CCEDU presence and the people questioning the ill-behavior stopped the madness.

Even if the streets was filled with soldiers, even massive scores of soldiers at the polling stations. FDC activists and leaders detained. Even in the days before and today, the Deputy Secretary General Harold Kajja was detained today. We could have expected also Secretary General Patrick Amuriat Oboi too, who posted pictures with ballots earlier in the day, but Kajja wasn’t that fortunate. There are still many of the FDC activists, the ones meeting at the FDC Office after the final rally on the 13th March 2018. They are still not released. The NRM are not forgiving and has no problem with acting against the law, when coming to detaining political prisoners. This is not new in the Republic, but yet another election with this sort of intimidation and harassment of fellow citizens who is naturally loyal to the Movement.

So, the incumbent had his joys, even as the NRM used all their force, all the government extravagance and even the President rallying for his NRM Candidate. The same candidate that Mwiru has challenged since before 2011. With similar numbers as today. The state hasn’t sufficient support for their man in Jinja East, they are trying the same lingo, but dropping the spoiled goods every time. They have now called for new elections in between 2011 and now, therefore, he has been elected four times. We understand that Museveni wants his own guy, but Jinja East doesn’t support Nabeta that much.

Museveni can send the army, pre-ticket ballots counting 8000, when the total tally of counted ballots today was 12,103. That means with the numbers Nabeta got, he would have gotten today 5,043 + 8000 is totally 13043. If that had been so, it would have been more voters than possible. That meaning the EC was planning big scale locally cooking of the numbers to get Nabeta in Parliament. You should wrinkle your mind there. When considering that Paul Mwiru got 6,654 votes today. Which was significantly enough to beat Nabeta with the government backing.

The state even with soldiers, police force active in partisan politics and the machinery ready to move the rigging affair too. If it wasn’t for mobile phones and civil activist for electoral codes in CCEDU. The picture might have been a affair where the NRM had gotten their way. They had intimidated and shut it down in favor of Museveni’s man. Even if the population of Jinja East wants Mwiru again. Because, Museveni doesn’t get that. That is why they exposed all the madness, why the FDC camped there to secure it and not let it go.

It is good to see NRM loose, but it is costly, since they use all vile force, they doesn’t spare the security organizations, they use intimidation and tactics that isn’t favor of a free and fair election. It is so messed up and the ones who follow knows this. It shouldn’t be this hard to get an opposition Member of Parliament elected to the 10th Parliament. However it is, and it says everything about the NRM and Musveni at this point. Peace.


Jinja East By-Election: Return Form for Tranmission of Results (15.03.2018)


CCEDU: Statement on the Jinja East MP by Election (15.03.2018)


Jinja By-Election: Intimidation and Rigging – The whole NRM M.O. in full effect!

Nathan Igeme Nabeta voting at Main Street Primary School in Jinja town.

You know that your candidate sucks, when you have to send the army into the streets of Jinja East. That is at least the evidence found for the National Resistance Movement Member of Parliament Candidate Nathan Igeme Nabeta. Who can sleep and get sick as a future MP, because he will naturally work for the agenda and causes President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni wants him too.

This Jinja East By-Election is just a proof, that the NRM regime are doing whatever they can to stop any independent mind or opposition MP into the Parliament. They use all venues, they arrest FDC personnel, the arrests their activists and their people on the ground. Just this week after the final rally for the FDC candidate Paul Mwiru, the state went to FDC Offices in Jinja and detained 51 of them. Without no hesitation, just to hurt the final stages of the campaign.

This just shows again, that the Uganda Police Force, is more political motivated, than being an actual crime-fighter brigade. Because they are working in favour of the president and his will. They do anything, not just to secure the voters get to vote in peace, but to intimidate, as usual. That is why tear-gas vans and other mambas has driving down the streets. It is insane, but only natural in the republic, which Museveni resides.

There are 47 polling stations, but considering the amounts of police and army personnel, you would not think this was not a by-election, but a hostile takeover. That someone was invading Jinja East and making sure, they did the right thing. In this regard, vote for the future sleepyhead Nabeta. I do not even know if he had a message during his campaign, because all that came out of his rallies. Was the standing and words of the President!

I do not know if that was by accident, but clearly, we cannot mistake that. Just like the clips and photos of the police beating anyone who they think might vote for Mwiru. If you think this democratic, if it is justified, you are wrong. This is just a vicious attempt of taking control of the seat in Parliament.

At this point, the NRM owns the Parliament and has the advantage anyhow, so I do not see it. Nevertheless, Museveni must conspire something out of his sleeve or back pocket. Because he has sent the irons, the blades and the tricks of his trade to the Jinja East.

At this point, the results does not matter, because the rigging, the anticipation for a fair result is gone. This is the sort of staged affair. That should be cancelled and new re-run with serious contending parties and no partial policing in the district, I know that is a dream, but that is if the ruling regime would fair. Which is not and never intend to be.

We know now that Nabeta is a sucky candidate, a candidate not worth writing about, as the popularity is in the hands of previous winner Mwiru of the FDC. However, the NRM and the Police wants it otherwise. I should care about the result, but it’s hard to do so, when the Police and the army is used in this fashion. It is petty politics, where the Commander-in-Chief, where the President sends his forces to teach his people a lesson. This isn’t an election. At this point, it is a Presidential Selection. Peace.
