Mzee ushers in the LDU like he did with the Crime Preventers before 2016!

Since the NRM has already addressed the other bottlenecks such as ideological disorientation, a weak state (no Army etc.) and market integration, we are now able to move decisively on building an integrated and self sustaining economy that is independent. Here independence has never meant isolation. It means participation in the World economy on an equal and comparative basis” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Speech at the opening of NRM MPs retreat, 2019’ 15.03.2019).

We have seen this movie before, we have seen the stages of building up a military parastatal organization to ensure and have enough guards in the streets ahead of the General Election. That was the Crime Preventers in 2015 and 2016. Since then it has been disbanded and stopped functioning. Even if it was founded in 2014, it would be fitting to see the similarities.

This happen in 2015:

President Y.K. Museveni on Tuesday the 18th August 2015, passed out 3,348 crime preventers after undergoing a seven weeks training at Police training school Kabalye in Masindi district under the theme: The fight against unemployment and poverty through enterprise partnership and production. The crime prevention and self-defense course was aimed at equipping the youths with skills necessary for job creation in a bid to fight poverty through enterprise partnerships. The crime preventers were drawn from higher institutions of learning throughout the country” (Uganda Police Force – ‘Pass out of Crime Preventers’ 18.08.2015).

Now in the 2019, the Local Defence Unit (LDU) is being ushered in, even earlier, than the regrouping and the impressive stature of National Crime Preventers Forum (NCPF), which was important and a group cleaning the slate for the state during and before the polls last time. We can anticipate this new unit doing the same. Even if it is more directly with guns and training, as the CP was more of police foot soldiers, whose less training and active by measures of the Police. The LDU is directly under the army and is a outfit directly there.

The President is clearly preparing to ensure the public to know of the amount of security organizations, soldiers and even LDU’s in the streets. This is the same he did with the Crime Preventers. LDU’s in this narrative makes sense. He has used the excuses of street violence and riots to create it, but will use it to intimidate during elections. Just like he did with the Crime Preventers and the President cannot use the same outfit again. Than, he will look ugly to the Election Observers, whose not following it steady.

LDU’s today:

This evening, I passed out 6,239 Local Defence Unit (LDU) trainees at Kaweweta Military Training School. The recruitees from Wakiso, Mukono and Kampala districts have completed 16 weeks of basic military and tactical training. In defending a country, you must look at the economics and find an affordable formula. You may not have such a big army but you must ensure it has the necessary strategic elements. For the UPDF, these elements are in place and we are enhancing them. We have the infantry which is easier and faster to train. It should have officers and men ready for duty. Then you have the reserves, like these LDUs, from whom we can recruit rifle men and machine gunners when necessary. When not on military duty, these reserves will be into other work like farming. But as the budget improves, we shall ensure they have frequent refresher courses. This LDU training is a robust programme. We focused a lot on the villages and some people thought they could destabilize Uganda by attacking towns because of heavy motor and human traffic” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 15.03.2019).

He calls them reserves, he is calling them an extra army and the training of them must be for some reasons, other than riots and demonstrations. This is a clear vindictive tactic, both to show power over the people. Its not enough with the laws, restricting their political freedoms, liberties or even ability to act upon the supposed multi-party democracy it’s supposed to be. However, that is not enough, how easy it is to be a political criminal. That is why the Police Force doesn’t have enough manpower, neither the Courts or any part of the Legal System is there for citizens, but for the patronage of the President.

That is why he needs more security forces for the elections, to intimidate and show his strength. Because, the President and his Party doesn’t have the popularity or the public support. He needs guns, he needs guns in the streets to show his greatness. Therefore, the LDU’s comes in as a substitute for the Crime Preventers. He just need a new program to be set-off for the old ones.

The LDU’s are reserves now, but will get more vital, more funding and become important in the hot minutes before the polls. The LDU’s will be stationed all across the Republic and with time also get posts where its needed. The LDU’s will not be used for just stopping possible urban demonstrations. Because, the President wouldn’t invest this much, if he couldn’t use it for his needs. They are up and coming.

Don’t get shocked, don’t get confused, this is preparations for the 2021. Mzee has played this game before and the saga continues. Peace.

Mzee’s answer to everything: Bring out the Guns!

There is something magical, something so magnificent and unique. That every time there is a problem, the BIG GUNS have to show up. The President, the Almighty, His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has to address the problem with hiring, appointing or ordering the military to intervene. They even have a commercial arm to assemble cellphones in the near future.

The army is already involved in the NAADS and SACCOs as well as other Operation Wealth Creation (OWC) projects. They have been involved in arresting people and disrupting rallies, not to talk about pure election violence. The army has been involved in invading the Plenary Chambers of the Parliament. There is nowhere the army and these branches of it isn’t touching.

If there is a problem. The President orders the Special Forces Command to monitor riots in Kampala. The President orders to combat army-worms and pipeline problems together with the KCCA. This is just mere simple example of the usage of the army.

The President when the Members of Parliament asked for more security, he ordered sharpshooters and specialized cars for the MPs to security their movements and travels. It was later turned down, but the way of the President to resolve the matter, was by getting the soldiers on stand-by and secure the VIPs.

This is how the President moves, now that Chinese Investors are afraid. The President has ordered soldiers to facilitate and secure the Chinese investments and investors themselves. The answer isn’t looking into the ruthless and insecurity. Instead, put out more guns in the field. Thinking they will solve the issue.

This is the militarism of the President. Where he sends the para-military Police Squads against oppositions. Where he had the Flying Squad, the Special Force Command, Crime Preventers, the Internal Security Organization (ISO) and the Chieftain of Military Intelligence (CMI) or even foot soldiers on the streets. Just to prove to the people, that he is boss!

That is just a sign of the lack of progress, the lack of development. When every crisis, when every need and whim of the President. The ones he is calling is the military and the soldiers, not trying to figure out the needed remedy. That gravy-train has left.

It is time to ask the President is if he has other advice and other solutions, because calling the soldiers to fix defects in society isn’t their role. Their role is to guard the borders and secure the Republic, not being the waiters and dancers at the party. That is how they are playing today. I am just awaiting seeing pictures of soldiers dropping off Waragin and Beer to VIPs. Because that is the only thing they isn’t doing. Since it isn’t long ago, when they even was in charge of a Beauty Pageant. Peace.

#SecurityUG: My take as nearly all Security Organizations are doing Police Work!

In this present state, we can start to question the safety of the public, not only that the Gen. David Muhoozi, the CDF of Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) thinks it is all cool; that the UPDF or the Army are investigating and arresting people. This is happening as the Internal Security Organization are doing the same. While the Flying Squad of the Police Force have sacked their Operatives and the Crime Preventers have become Reserve Army. While Boda Boda 2010 have been disbanded and Kiatta’s fate is all in limbo still.

We can certainly see the fluid situation, as the Flying Squad, the Chieftain of Military Intelligence (CMI), ISO, UPDF and Police Force are all directly trying to address the same problems in society. Even when needed, the President comes to scatter crime scenes and orders the Special Force Command (SFC) to tdo their thing.

Clearly, this is all should send the memo. That there are many cooks, many orders and units, but few who cooks perfectly. Because there are so many chefs, but so little output. Maybe that is the point to, as this is not the whole spectrum, but a big part of the Security Organizations involved.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) and the President have built this system. We know it is messed up and that is because he has arranged it like this. Made a dozens outfits, possible to combat various intrusions and whatnot’s, but goblins doesn’t just appear from the thin-air. So, they got to do something.

That is why suddenly the UPDF are implicated in Police work, the Crime Preventers was too, but now are in the shadows, the Flying Squad was around flexing muscle, the CMI attacking and detaining people without warrants, but the Police Force was preoccupied following and monitoring opposition politicians. That is just the way things are and is, apparently, not to forget SFC was both doing political ambushes, also following President direct order to assault and detain politicians without any other reason. That they are in the near facility of his highness.

It is sad that all questions revolves around the President, even with the personal changes of new IGP or new CDF. The situation isn’t strengthening or becoming better, it is more of the same. Political prisoners kept long without trial like Dr. Stella Nyanzi. There are other too, but she is the biggest catch of the month. There are nothing happening with Sam Mugumya in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Therefore, the security with murders, assassinations and arrests, without the violence stopping. The salvos of attacks on the streets from CMI, shows the brilliance of the police brutality to whole world. It was broadcast from the street of Kampala.

Therefore, as the Flying Squad is demoted, the Boda Boda 2010 is too, the CMI acting out, the SFC wilding out and the list goes on. We can wonder what will be up, but there is nothing that is promising for a better security situation, as it has deteriorating a bit. Also, the lack of action and promise that is profound. The NRM and the President knows this, but just patching the hurt. They are not healing wounds or even closing the unanswered cases. As with time there are opening new cases and they move on. Even as the victims and their families are left astray, by all the organizations that is supposed to protect them and defend them. Peace.

UPDF: Arrest of Four Suspected Armed Criminals in Areas of Buziga-Kampala (13.10.2018)

UPDF Press Statement on opening recruitment of the Local Defence Unit in Kampala and Wakiso (22.09.2018)

Uganda: Press Statement by Mrs Angela Kayihura (18.06.2018)

UPDF Press Statement on Gen. Kale Kayihura 2.0 (14.06.2018)

The Final Twisted tale of Kayihura! [Officially detained at Makindye Military Barracks]

Now the General, the former Inspector General of Police Edward Kale Kayihura is now taken into custody, he is charged with the killing of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi from last year. He was taken from Mbarara, the police searched the hotel in Lyantonde and even sent a military chopper to his farm. Clearly, they had planned to apprehend him. The UPDF Statement of yesterday was vague at best and the reality has hit the fan. The kingpin, the man behind the shield is now in custody.

We know they are really gone after him too, as four of his close associates is also behind bars. The men around in leadership roles within the police is now also arrested. That is serious business. Means, that the time of freedom and liberty after ended service is now all gone and the state has started its retribution. This time in the name of Kaweesi.

All of Kayihura and his crew, his farm is sealed off and the ones big-man has now lost all his spark. As he is detained at Makindye Military Prison. Certainly, the arrest of Kayihura is big and many has awaited this. The last 48 hours shows so, as he has arrested many and plenty of petty matters and used political arrests frequently. Clearly, all of the families who has seen their relatives goes punished for being political will get their prayers answered with seeing the culprit behind the matter behind bars.

Here is the new fresh reports:

“Monday night security chiefs meeting sealed Kayihura fate. The decision to arrest former IGP Kale Kayihura was made during a high level security meeting held at State House Entebbe on Monday” (PML Daily, 14.06.2018).

“Kayihura met with the Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi at the army headquarters in Mbuya, Kampala. At Mbuya, he was interrogated for about seven hours until around 8:00pm when a heavily-guarded military convoy of military trucks escorted him to Makindye” (91.2 Crooze FM, 14.06.2018).

“Former Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura has been detained at Makindye Military Barracks. Gen Kayihura, according to Defence Spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire, was airlifted from his farm in Kashagama, Lyantonde District” (91.2 Crooze FM, 14.06.2018).

This here is really showing how his fate was sealed. The State House decided that now was the time to set it off and signal him off. Even after many years of being obedient and loyal cadre. He is now an outcast and an outlaw. His rank and profile doesn’t matter, he is no a common criminal.

All of this just settle it. The ones time a favourite of the President is now just old hot-garbage. That will get the same treatment has Kayihura has served others in his role as the IGP. He is now soon giving the same plotted downfall as we have seen with other big-men Museveni want to get rid off. This is certainly, because Kayihura knows to much and has had to much connections. That is why he has to taken down now, before he spiral off and even reveal it.

It is official, he is arrested and detained. Certainly, not what Kayihura thought would be the end of his career. Now he will answer for the brutal assassination of Kaweesi. No one anticipated that, but that is front. Since so many people have been put forward as suspects in that case. This is just the nail in the coffin of Kayihura. Peace.

UPDF Press Statement on Gen. Kale Kayihura (13.06.2018)

The Leopards Anus is now going after the Bean Weevil!

There are something strange going-on in the Republic, the former Inspector General of Police Gen. Edward Kale Kayihura is being haunted by the authorities. The fall from grace is magnificent. It isn’t a year ago since he was awarded an award by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and not even a year ago since he was reappointed as the IGP. That after already serving as the IGP since 2005. However, the bucked stopped in March 2018 as the President sacked the former loyal cadre.

Today, the total has appeared, the former loyalists and kingpin, the man who has followed all orders from above is now being searched for by the Police and Military in Lyantonde. We can just wonder what sparked this and what he knows. It is just weird, just as the fall of Abdullah Kiatta of Boda Boda 2010. The fall of Kayihura is sudden out of nowhere.

The Bean Weevil surely has to fly, it has to get enough wings and get away from the Leopard. The leopard is hunting for his prey. I would expect a gazelle or buffalo, but maybe the leopard aren’t that hungry anymore.

We can certainly see that loyalty within the National Resistance Movement (NRM) isn’t worth it. As soon as your used up, get ready to be deemed criminal. The cadre who followed orders and did the needed deeds of the movement is now ready to thrown away like garbage. Because outlaws and criminals, like petty thieves. This being the former IGP of the Republic, who had the role for 13 years and was in the ear of the President. Surely, that should pay-off, instead he loses everything as soon as the title is taken away. That must hurt his pride.

He went from being regarded and respected, hated too, but also a man whose orders meant something. His choices and his appointments meant a lot for the ones who was selected by Kayihura. Now the same people are haunting him. They are hunting him and that is blessed by Leopard.

The leopard doesn’t care, he is just ready for his prey. He is ready to take the bean weevil down. The reports are the Special Force Command of Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the Presidents Guards, who has arrested him and being detained at the Seniors Officers Mess in Kololo, Kampala (NBS TV, 12.06.2018). Clearly, he must be stunned to be captured there. What the police did in Lyantonde. Who knows, but they we’re out looking for insects. So maybe they catch a few ratchet grasshoppers on the way. So that Kayihura doesn’t feel so lonely. Today, on the 13 June 2018, there are verified reports that Kayihura is now summoned to the CDF David Rubakuba Muhoozi. So there is still uncertainty, but that he is trouble, that is for sure.   

What we know by now, is that the leopard has no mercy and not even to his own. He will not leave the wounds open and leave the ones leaving the fold, without some sort of retribution. No one crosses him without being touched. This is the fall, the mighty, mighty fall. Mount Everest and down to Sea-Level.

The Leopards Anus has now taken the Bean Weevil, what is the next move? What will you do now and for what reason will you use? Is he threat? Has he kidnapped the soul of the President? What did Kayihura do?

We can only await, but surely he will not be a cadre anymore, he will be a common criminal in the hands of the authorities. The state has taken by the presidential guards. There is no turning back now. The Bean Weevil are lucky if he can escape his fate now. Peace.
