Opinion: The Calvary has gone bonkers on the Opposition, today; Because of the Interim Order banning the FDC’s Defiance Campaign

Kizza Besigye 03.05.2016 P1

“It is no longer a struggle between FDC and NRM.It is now a struggle between God and Satan’, between right and wrong, between justice and injustice. Everybody must decide where to belong” – Wafula Oguttu

“The defiance campaign will go on until the NRM regime collapses. The national demonstrations of May 5th will go on.” Dr Kizza Besigye

Its early morning people are supposed to get their morning tea and go to work. That is not the state of affairs in Kampala. Where many Opposition figures and leaders was going to attend the FDC Prayers at the Najjankumbi Headquarters even as the Interim Orders of 29th April 2016 got into effect and was submitted to the FDC on Monday the 2nd May 2016.

Lukwago 03.05.2016

The Uganda Police Force and their Regional Police Commander of Kampala South Geoffrey Kaheebwa who has besieged the FDC Headquarters and taken away the men and woman who wanted to attend the prayers. This would be Dr. Stella Nyanzi, Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, Sheik Katende and Pastor David Ngabo. Muhammed Ssegirinya of Councillor Elect of Kawempe was called by local Police Officer asked not to go to the Prayers! Fred W. Mutibwa the Eastern of the Desk Officer have also been detained.

“The right to worship is not entrenched in the constitution as being absolute. It is like any other form of right. The FDC weekly prayers are a way of mobilising people to demonstrate and these were last week banned by court,” said Gen Kayihura.

The Police have also detained Ronald Muhinda a radio journalist and Daily Monitors journalist Stephen Kafeero was both detained by them today.

“This defiance campaign is not a Besigye’s Defiance. It is the citizens campaign defying injustice. Kavuma decreed that its criminal to address the media but you are all here and I am addressing you. That is defiance.” – Dr. Kizza Besigye

So the actions that the Police Force is showing today are the blatant and violence of the citizens’ rights to express their freedom, even to simply pray for their country is now a crime. That should shock and awe about the steps that the NRM regime goes to silence their opposition now. Together with the threats of the journalists who are covering it will be detained from IGP Kale Kayihura says it all, how little they care for their own people. That the ones that reporting on the matter and being the watchdogs are told to keep their mouth shut, even on the World Press Freedom Day. The Police Force has really become totally political as the ones taking pictures of Kasangati getting detained. The world should suspend their aid and military support to the NRM regime as they don’t care for their own citizens and for any democratic values as long as the NRM and their Executive rules the country.

The actions of today speaks that level and the little care for rights of their fellow citizens even people showing up at the FDC Headquarters is a crime. Not even saying a word, just showing up at the Forum for Democratic Change Party Offices in Kampala. This is the true wonders of the National Resistance Movement; they went to the bush to be able to oppress their own people instead of being oppressed by Dr. Milton Obote. Long live the irony and the bleak sadness.

UPF Najjankumbi 03.05.2016

President Museveni might say he is stronger and better prepared as the procurement of tear-gas and anti-riots Armoured Personnel Carriers to bring down and smash the opposition. Something he often says with different words and with the same dead tone of short stuttering words. The NRM Regime is now so forced to force themselves on the Public that they have to detain citizens for praying. They are now detaining fellow citizens for praying. How does that feel fellow Christian and wanted –to-be Pastor Museveni? Does that feels like justice as you quote bible-words in your speeches and quotes of true democratic belief. While your actions and the actions of your Police Force are harassment of the opposition. That is just evident in today alone, and it’s not only happen today. It’s been a theme through your whole rule the only difference now is that the International media and world can get the information and you cannot supress it.

So in Uganda you have no right to prayer and the Police can detain you for praying. If it is so, then there are no essential freedoms as the People are told what to do and how to act by the Police State and the NRM Regime. They are now in full lock-down on the Opposition and monitoring all of them. More will be taken in and detained. If Kasangati get sealed off again would not surprise me and if the other leaders would be taken would be natural at this point. IF more members of the FDC is also taken it is Modus Operandi by them. Peace.

Standard Group Ltd Journalist David Odongo arrested in Nairobi

Odongo Puff Piece

Well, there been rumored that orders from up-high that Standard Group Limited David Odongo got arrested and detained at Nyayo Embaksi Police Station in Nairobi over a story published in the Nairobian. He is now detained, but the orders from above is not yet approved or claimed by anybody, but if; I see it like this: The IGP Joseph Boinett must have gotten the ‘orders’ and used the local police chief to detain him; Sure that is the Nairobi Police Commander Japhet Koome have to follow the orders of Boinett, as Boinett followed orders from above.

Nkaissey 2016

My theory as the reason is that Interior Cabinet Secretary Hon. Joseph Nkaissery, who we’re in charge of detaining John Ngirachu of the Daily Nation, James Mbaka of the Daily Star and Alphonce Skiundu of the Standard Group Limited. That he got detained and questioned for writing about questionable use of government funds in December 2015. Certainly I believe he was in-charge and he is the one from ABOVE. I would not be surprised or shocked. But he has already a track-record for this kind of rash actions; so why not now?

Not that it is shocking that the David Ondongo the writer and Journalist who wrote this piece recently in the Nairobian: “Meet Kimani Rugendo, the billionaire businessman” that got published on the 9th April 2016. That was a puff piece on a business-man who has made business with bottle-water, drinks and some army contracts. So if that is worrying for the nation of Kenya, then what is?

Odongo Standard Group Ltd

He wrote this on his own facebook yesterday where he was critical about the Kenyan Government Spokesperson writing a Statement that was criticizing PBS for their “Kenya Corruption Documentary Series”. Where he was writing: “Eric Kiraithe, being a spokesman doesn’t mean you have to speak even when you have nothing to say. Are you mad? Do you live in Kenya? Get off your ivory tower and come back to reality. If I posted your number here so that Kenyans can call you every time a cop demands a bribe from them, you will run mad. Your phone won’t stop ringing. Do you know how much Kenyans are suffering? So now, Mr Kiraithe you want to blame the civil society for the mess, you and your fellow cops put us into? Stop taking Kenyans for fools. You must have worked hard to be in the position you are right now, stop cheapening yourself by making statements, that you, deep in your heart know isn’t true. Can you look at your children, straight in their eyes, and tell them the video by PBS is fiction? I also don’t like my country being portrayed negatively by foreign media, but the truth can’t be hidden. You have some good officers in the force, but majority are rotten to the core. ‪#‎EndOfRant” (Odongo, 14.04.2016).

So do I believe that he was detained for a puff piece in the Nairobian on the 8th of April? No not really, because his own will and his own words on Social Media as a writer and journalist will be recognized just as the words of Charles Onyango-Obbo (COO) quotes on Twitter will create views and questions on Policy. The same reach does not David Ondongo have, but he still have his space and his followers. So I believe that, that statement on Social Media is more worthy of creating some fuzz, then the piece on the business-man who trades bottled water and also investing in Sterling Craft Kenya Limited that they are starting to make ‘Water Tanks’ not tanks for the Kenya Defense Force (KDF). So the puff-piece must be used for deflection for the statement on the Facebook yesterday. As the Government got the whiff of his ideas and attack on the Kenyan government, that should be the case; not the puff-piece. Peace.
