Archive for the tag “Declaration Forms”

Darius Tweyambe released after 11 days at Kireka and after the release he visited Kizza Besigye!

Darius Released

Finally released, though 11 days without “charge” for carrying Candidates Declaration Results forms that says the Polls and votes from Poll Stations in the area. That Darius Tweyambe, the FDC Official in Rukungiri was detained for collection DR Forms, not inciting crime! That is what the Police Force in Uganda are doing and getting away with! Nobody is saying anything or addressing the matter.

A statement from the U.S. Embassy in Kampala regarding the Ugandan elections of February 18 and the detention of Dr. Kizza Besigye (26.02.2016)

US Mission to UG

The U.S. Embassy calls again on Ugandan authorities to release Dr. Kizza Besigye from house arrest and to permit him to travel freely. We note that Dr. Besigye has been under near continuous police detention since the February 18 election, has not been charged with any crime, and was denied his constitutional right to participate in the February 24 elections.

We further call upon Uganda authorities to cease and desist from any further harassment or intimidation of members of the opposition, such as the reported arrests of FDC party agents. Officials of all parties, including the opposition, must be allowed to provide their leadership with polling data collected during the vote, free from intimidation or threat of detention, in accordance with international norms and the principles of a democratic society.

We are also deeply concerned by the Electoral Commission’s delay in releasing polling data. This, along with Dr. Besigye’s detention and arrest of party agents, has inhibited citizens’ ability to verify vote tallies and potentially challenge the election results in court within the constitutionally mandated ten-day period.

We expect the Ugandan authorities to uphold the rights of all of their citizens, regardless of political affiliation, and allow the opposition to play a legitimate role in the country’s politics. We further expect all parties to refrain from actions or rhetoric that may lead to violence and to resolve their disputes peacefully.

Road Block at Kasangati 22.02.2016

While trying to go to the Electoral Commission offices this morning, the Police had different ideas about the plans Dr. Kizza Besigye had, as when he went out of the gates of his home in Kasangati. The Police stopped his car and taken him away.

He is now in Mukono or in Mukono district at Naggalama Police Station detained. As with his house arrest and his ordinary detaining terms is without reason or warrants. This is the Modus Operandi of the IGP. Gen. Kale Kayihura by now, the man who follows orders blindly from his Commander-in-Chief President Museveni; as he uses Public Order Management Act, as it the proper tool to take down and shut-down the opposition in the country. That is what has happen today while Dr. Kizza Besigye was taken from the gates of Kasangati and detained at Naggalama Police Station where they must have named a Cell after him by now.

Police KB Kasangati 22.02.2016

The Locals in Kasangati because of the steady levels of Police and roadblocks has nicknamed Kasangati “Benghazi” after the war-zone in Libya. It is surely a feeling the locals justified to have as they have more police there, as Besigye must be seen as the worst criminal in the land, by President Museveni; as he knows that he is epitome of what he is not; a man of the people and therefore he has to be contained; even if he hasn’t done anything else then living in the same country as the President.

CP Fred Enaga had his lies to tell the press as ever:
“Besigye’s plan to destabilize the city are foreign funded”. Mr. Police Officer, I hate throw shade on your pay-check, but your budget is donor funded and been for decades; so it’s more likely that the brown jersey your wearing with your name has been paid by a foreign government; you have to have a better argument Mr. Police Officer!

The Police has also been besieged the Electoral Commission headquarters as the Police has such a fear of the presence of the people to search or appeal the result; as the result has already been set and the Police as a NRM outfit will secure their longevity by any means at this point. Also at FDC headquarter of the Najjanankumbi the Police has sieged the offices there as well today.

Later after the sieging of the Police they took it further as the FDC party is officially illegal, totally illegal, that is the indication for the moment as the Police Force raided the offices and rounded up the FDC staff. While even later the Party President Gen. Mugisha Muntu showed up at the gates of the offices and was not allowed by the Police to access the headquarters. As he got picked up and also detained. They went to pick the Declaration Forms, as the Electoral Commission and the Police Force has to clean-up the mess they have done as they have stolen the election; since their sins are visible in the indications of the copies of the Electoral Declaration Forms; that the Government of Uganda by all means don’t want released to the public as it is their venom.

Hon. Ofwono Opondo said on NBS TV today:
“To think your win is valid while win over others from the same election isn’t abuse of Ugandan intelligence”. Well, your insulting people while not really counting the ballots and rigging the elections; while telling the same people pointing it is insulting the Ugandan people; I don’t follow… as the Hon. Opondo the reason why people like me can’t see validity in this election as the too much that has occurred to counter the value of the ballots and the peoples will. Something you should know as the election has happen in a speed and way that should make people shut-up and hide your mind; because you’re a loyal cadre that is eating because of President Museveni, and if it wasn’t for him, you wouldn’t be anybody! Just as his boss Hon. Opondo said this as well: “We don’t care what the international community care thinks”. I am sure you and your boss care if the international community cuts more or suspends direct donor aid, IMF and World Bank suspends projects as the Taxes does not help the Ugandan National Development Program II, is so big that if the government supposed to fulfill the pledges of that one, the Ugandan Government need the international community, so continue not to care about the international community!

As side-note from Kabale District:
“This is it inform the world that on Saturday dawn 4.30AM the Army and Police stormed in Rukiiko hall Kabale District headquarters where tallying of votes was taking place. They forced a one Juma Shesa, the District returning officer to park all the computers as well as available declaration forms; he was taken to Kampala to the EC head quarters. Incidentally , due to the pre-ticked ballot papers in favour of the NRM presidential candidate as well as other NRM parliamentary candidates, numbers could not balance. Up till now the Woman MP results for Kabale District are not yet announced” (FDC, 22.02.2016).

So it’s truly one thing is happening from the authorities in Uganda, that the FDC and the Forum for Democratic Change is the biggest force of criminals as they are hounded detained without warrants, reason or justification other then they are an issue for the legitimacy of President Museveni official 5th Term, sorry the 7th, he can never in my view rewrite history and shave of his first decade in power. Well, this here will continue the oppression and totalitarian regime that is faking it until they hope to make it. On the way they are harassing and oppressing the parties and people who do not kiss the ring of President Museveni. Peace.

Dr. Kizza Besigye: “My Message To The Youth Of Uganda: Claim Your Country! Claim Your Future!” (21.02.2016)

FDC Kizza Besigye Home Kasangati

Thank you for fulfilling your civic duty by voting for change. Your enthusiastic participation in the stolen 2016 elections demonstrates that you wanted to change the politics of this country and secure your future through the ballot box; only to be frustrated by partisan security agencies and an incompetent electoral commission. The electoral process was rigged using intimidation of voters, imprisonment of opponents, sabotage of rallies, late delivery of election materials, delayed opening of election centers, vote falsification at undisclosed tally centers, and bribery, among other malpractices.

But do not be discouraged — the struggle for a democratic dispensation did not start and end on Election Day and the electoral process itself did not end with the announcement of doctored results. Therefore, do not surrender. The majority of you were not even born when the current NRM regime came into power in 1986. Yet all you have inherited are the consequences of its bad governance.

Youth unemployment in Uganda is known to be the highest in Africa estimated to be between 62%, and 83%! I addressed the unemployment rate, deteriorating quality of education, corrupt credit schemes that did not benefit you; and the desperate circumstances of Uganda’s youth during my campaigns. You know your conditions better than me. The election has been rigged and the government is doing all it can to silence me. It is time for you to claim your rights and lead this struggle.

Uganda’s future, your future is in your hands. Remain firm. We can make this country work for each and everyone of us. But you must assert yourselves and claim your future. There is no other person who will do it for us.

Here is where we are: As of now there is no winner, the election process has not ended. The law gives us 10 days after announcement of results to challenge the outcome that is announced. As you all know, I have spent the first of those ten days under house arrest. I am now left with 9 days to exercise this right. Therefore, tomorrow I am going to the Electoral Commission to receive their results. I will then meet the campaign team and following that we will go around the country and collect all our information in order to prepare a well-considered response. This is a right we take for granted and are not asking for permission.

I invite you my friends,

• To rally behind the demand for an independent and transparent audit of the 2016 presidential election results. Explain this to all your friends.

• If you are in Kampala join me to walk to the Electoral Commission. We leave my gate at Kasangati at 9:00AM. Police will try to stop us, I know; but this is about claiming our rights. We will walk peacefully.

• In every village, collect the Declaration Forms that may still be in your possession. Use your phone or camera to photograph the results Declaration form. We will tell you how to transmit them.

• My friends online, engage our African brothers and sisters as well as the international community to reject the results and support our demands for an independent audit.

FDC HQ 19.02.2016 Police Siege

Friends, I have warned that we are witnessing a creeping military coup that aims to subvert the will of the people. We set out to claim our rights and our country through defiance not compliance. We are still on that path and we shall win by defiance NOT compliance. The NRM government believes that by isolating me the defiance campaign is dead but it was not a one-man campaign. This was your campaign and you must now LEAD IT! Peaceful protest is a human right that is in our Constitution. As you know whenever we have gone out to exercise that right peacefully we have been met with extreme violence. But we will not be cowed. The most brutal dictatorships have crumbled when the people asserted themselves. In Philippines, Romania, Guatemala, Tunisia, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso we have seen them fall when the youth stood up for their rights. There will be pain and sacrifice. I am ready for it and I have been absorbing it. Do not be afraid, it is our historic duty.

Aluta Continua
For God And Our Country

Dr. Kizza Besigye
