Agreeing with Besigye and it feels good; though sadden by the wisdom Hon. Kiiza…

Besigye Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

Eh! It feels good to have same opinion as the incarcerated Presidential Candidate of the Forum for Democratic Change Dr. Kizza Besigye, he have lately been able to drop a few words to the public from his jail cell in Luzira Maximum Prison, this happens as the FDC scrambles for etiquette and justify their place in the 10th Parliament.

First he will address the Shadow Cabinet, and say similar words to my own. Though he is the freedom fighter and proves that with his words, as he knows the caliber of oppression the regime have and the legitimacy the Shadow Cabinet does. Take a quick look!  

First Point – Shadow Cabinet!

On the Shadow Cabinet:

“I do not think MPs should be reduced to fighting for small positions in Parliament. What we need to be fighting for is different. We need to struggle to strengthen our position on the ground and form structures like the Power 10 we used in elections to develop capacity to take on the regime that we know has lost credibility. In Parliament, they are just there to make numbers they can’t change anything President Museveni wants whether in Opposition or not,” (…) “We can’t allow positions in Parliament that mean nothing to cause rifts yet we have much to do,” (…)“I have spent much of my youthful age in the struggle, now I am over 60 years, I am not growing younger. What is remaining is that we must fight to the end whoever dies, others will continue. We can’t hold on any more until we get peace, justice, freedom and equality before the law,” – Dr. Kizza Besigye (Rumanzi, Perez – ‘Nothing to fight for in Parliament, says Besigye’ 26.06.2016 – Daily Monitor).

Kiiza Article Daily Monitor

What Winnie Kiiza has said of late on the Shadow Cabinet:

“… Many people look at Opposition as enemies of the state … people don’t want to associate with us in the Opposition … In multiparty dispensation, opposition parties are supposed to guide and check government, Ugandans should know that at the time we are taking on leadership, as opposition we are facing tough times, so let’s join hands for a better Uganda” Hon Winnie Kiiza (Leader of Opposition).

When you the incarcerated Besigye, the leader who have been able to unify the opposition and also being the man who made progress on the frontline and talked about the real change in the country, to create accountability and democratic values, that Hon. Kiiza who are part of his party is first throwing him under the bus and dodging the entangled issue. While she is defending the righteous ways of being a opposition leader in Parliament, also giving up the principals and all the oppression for quick silver and made-believe possibilities, if not the sealing of the Ministry of Education and Sports after the swearing in Janet Museveni, if the NRM regime and ruling party where democratic then the Ministry would be allowed to use phones and not run under the strict control of the First Lady of Uganda. And this is the regime that LoP is serving and not giving way for liberation and freedom from the Police State under the NRM. That is something she cannot run away from, but easy to attack Besigye while he is behind bars and not visible, but he is the epitome of everything the regime is not. That is also what the issue and the reason why Hon. Kiiza have to defend her place in the Parliament…

kavuma

Second Point – Deputy Justice Steven Kavuma:

Points taken from the letter to Stephen Kavuma:

“LETTER FROM LUZIRA PRISON: ‪Dr. Kizza Besigye ‪of the ‎FDC has petitioned the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) to investigate the suitability of Justice Steven Kavuma as a justice of the Court of Appeal/Constitutional Court. In a June 16 letter from Luzira prison, BESIGYE alleges that Justice Kavuma is close to the Executive and that instead of doing judicial work in line with the oath he took, he is allegedly doing the bidding of President Museveni, the appointing authority. In a five-page letter, BESIGYE alleges improper conduct, abuse of office, neglect of duty and maladministration by Justice Kavuma which he says should be investigated and appropriate action taken against him. The core mandate of the JSC is to recruit and discipline errant judicial officers. “The conduct of Mr ‪‎Steven Kavuma, over the years since he joined the ‪#‎UGANDAJUDICIARY was initially frequently suspicious, then later frequently outrageous and currently, predominantly improper to point of going against the oaths and the standards expected of such a judicial officer,” Dr Kizza Besigye” (Forum for Democratic Change, 27.06.2016).

The point is valid as Stephen Kavuma has done more to show loyalty to Museveni and NRM than keeping up with unlawful practice. The Justice been more entangled into the works of conducting the orders from above and prove that he justify the truths of the NRM Regime, and the Police State under control of the above high. Together with the Uganda Police going against the opposition and being a tool to control the dissidents instead of stopping criminal activity, also bribing people to be witness and create fake affidavits to secure the rulings in favor of the ruling regime, instead of justice; and it is in this regard that Besigye also write to the Justice Kavuma, it is not a personal vendetta, more of a justified question, as the judge went directly and at one point made FDC party illegal; something that the justice shouldn’t do as a respectable state, as the Defiance shouldn’t be an issue in the nation of Resistance.

So I say this, and for those that are surprised by the assessment, I agree with both pieces and opinions from Dr. Kizza Besigye. His words on LoP and Shadow Cabinet, is similar to the ones I have addressed, they must surely be hurtful for Hon. Kiiza and Gen. Mugisha Muntu, as the proof in the words are addressing the reality on the ground, the same I have written in the recent months.

Muntu Besigye Delegation Conferance 2015

The same feeling about the Judge and his activity that is more about personal attitude and serves the Mzee instead of being a man of justice, a judge who respect the law and does not serve the Executive, but the laws and regulatory of the state.

There is more to come, as the court-rooms and litigations will continue to be given to Dr. Kizza Besigye and Forum for Democratic Change, while the ruling regime does what it can to take down the opposition and doing that with the main competitor as Besigye are usually silenced by the prison cell and by the alleged crimes put on the politician.

And Mzee must be happy that he can create fuzz between the Muntu-FDC and the Besigye-FDC, as he also did with the UPC-Otunnu and UPC-Akena. Just think about that for a minute, and say I am wrong? Peace.

Mzee have finally wiped out the opposition as he promised after the announced victory!

Museveni Kenya Speech 2016

“I will wipe out the opposition completely in the next 5 years. NRM is going to be stronger” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni

Let be clear, right after announced victory from the Electoral Commission and Eng. Dr. Badru Kiggundu, President Museveni said that he would wipe out the opposition and he has done it with passion and certainly soon done it as his duty. In a way to make sure that the Multi-Party system in the Nation is a flop.

The opportunities and the silver coined framed opposition figures in the Forum for Democratic Change are joining forces in the Shadow Cabinet to gain some estimated figures from the coffers of Parliament and play the parliamentary pawns that Mzee needs this term.

Betty Amongi Jimmy Akena Statehouse 21.06.2016

While the Uganda People’s Congress are busy trading their soul with NRM, as they are getting two slots in the 81 size cabinet of 2016-2021. The rest of UPC under Olara Otunnu are distancing and in general might even create another branch, and party that becomes a new profile, since they don’t want to be part of the NRM and Obote’s son selling of inheritance to Mzee.

Uganda Federal Alliance have also sold their fortunes for a Cabinet position and is therefore silenced by the Mzee, as she the leader of the party want to serve him and also be a part of his established court.

The hardliners of FDC are either lingering in jail, detained, house-arrested or kidnapped by security forces as the rest of the party are playing hide-and-seek close to Yusuf Lule Road in Kampala. So the party of FDC is even into the half who wants to continue the defiance of Dr. Kizza Besigye, and the ones that are settling for the silver-coins with the lingering blood on it.

Ken Lukyamuzi

The Grand question is: where is the Conservative Party of Ken Lukayamuzi? They are not to be seen, JEEMA are they still out there? Justice Forum and their men who even have been besieged by the Police during the days of officiating Mzee; the smaller parties are totally silent or at a non-approach. Democratic Party and Norbert Mao have addressed concern and the initial connection with the shoot-out in Gulu, while that was not true and government made conspiracy, and with the newly dispatched Amama Mbabazi, the party should be stronger, though their lingering nothingness, proves that the ability that Mzee have had since leaving for his swearing in,

The Police Force monitoring and detaining, silencing and attacking the opposition, together with trading with weaker minded opposition have made the stalemate livable, as the mentor and ticking problem of Besigye, is going from court to court, and addressing charges after charges and even treason, as IGP Kayihura are paying criminals to be witnesses and uses all means, and even most brain-dead police officers to lie in court; like he did in Kasangati Court of late; when the justice had to listen to the testimony of the Police Officer who was a former colonel, but never been to the army. So the truth is that, as long as he doesn’t have a voice, the men are walking around unsure of how behave towards the oppressive and militarized government of National Resistance Movement.

Besigye Nakawa 18.05.2016

All of the Opposition parties are toothless right now, the Human Rights Organizations of Kampala are raided and nothing happens. People and activist are kidnapped, soldiers are being shot and killed in made up conspiracies, while colonels and sergeants are detained as well. The paranoia of the state combined with the militarized politics and police force are taken freedoms and taken all parts of the state. The Opposition is on life support… Who is out there to save it, as the big man Dr. Kizza Besigye is away and nobody else have the legitimacy or the charisma to fight the powers with peaceful means while Mzee uses every tactic in the book to destroy and conquer them. Something he has been successful with ever since election and the reaping results are happening now, as he 10th Parliament are soon in function and the government are soon departing into brown envelopes, as business is back to normal after a hectic year. Peace.

Throwback Clip: “Treason test: State has hard test to prove” (19.10.2011)

“What does it mean to face a treason charge? And does taking part in the walk-to-work protests amount to plotting to overthrow the government? And what are the chances that the suspects will be convicted?” (NTV Uganda, 2011).

My 2 Cents: 

Instead of Walking to Work, it is now “Defiance”, but the same actions, just more vicious. The Internet doesn’t forget. Remember that! Peace.

My 2 Cents: 

No Reason for pulling the Application and Affidavit of IGP Kale Kayihura today, well, IGP Kayihura have other tactics to stifle the Opposition in his sleave, if not he get orders from up-high. Peace.

FDC NEC with their recent actions “acting like a fish out of water”

FDC NEC

As the news of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) National Executive Committee (NEC) accepted two persons who wanted to be in shadow cabinet in Parliament of Uganda. The ones that are shocked that certain parts of the FDC-O wanted this, shouldn’t be, as the FDC have been there before and is going back into its shell, like a tortoise.

FDC under Rtd. Maj. Gen. Mughisha Muntu who proclaimed victory over Museveni and his NRM in February have either swallowed a lot of scallops or lost the bargained time and though a WhatsApp update was to reinvent the internet. While his man and the one who made the campaign of 2015/2016 so massive is lingering in Luzira, and for those who don’t know that is Dr. Kizza Besigye.

While certain FDC candidates, leaders and others have been house-arrested, kidnapped or even tortured. So for their hardships certain parts of central leadership have given them up. Like the FDC Youth leader who was tortured in Northern Uganda. As much as the FDC candidate against Jacob Oulanyah, the new Deputy Speaker in Parliament is reported to be detained around Kololo. So while the FDC members and leaders, candidates even tortured and arrested without reason. Certain MPs still have the armor and Teflon to say they we’re loser and want to bend backwards towards the NRM and Museveni.

NBS Presidential Election Petition 2016

The 10th Parliament is a sham; it is rigged to fix the stamps for Museveni and his vision. While the rest of the men are puppeteers who are there to mop the floor of the vomit that is coming out Mzee mouth. I am just saying what so many are thinking, but not having the honor of saying. With this in mind, while he is handpicking the most useless heads to run dozen ministries, to follow his vision and his proposed laws.

Hon. Winnie Kiiza of Kasese is now the Leader of Opposition and has taken the token over from last term Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi. The second position went to FDC Spokesperson Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju becoming the Chief Whip of the shadow cabinet in Parliament. So the FDC-O or the FDC NEC feared losing this would lose their little entitlement in Parliament in this term, even if this is smidge of gain, not even worth talking about. It would be like given Ministry of Information and National Guidance or some other tiny ministry without access to any central funds or such.

Defiance Pens

The action is countering the whole Defiance campaign and the one that the Party was standing behind went it was hot. The heat and the intimidation together with the little fear the Democratic Party MP or Uganda People’s Congress MP could shelf them even more in the Parliament; I presume that is the case. But what is to gain for compliance when you have fought with defiance?

Dear FDC MPs and FDC NEC what was with the defying the NRM and Museveni, was that a joke to you? Was that something that clings nice in November 2015 until March 2016? Now it’s like a living fish on land for certain of you, as you try to become fish in the water again.

Besigye Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

I just have to ask, since this counters what Besigye who have heart and is stuck in prison for his faith in the will of change in the Nation. Not to be obedient to Museveni, as he sells his soul for an extra cow to his farms. With that he will soon be on trial for treason against the state. While the MPs and Central leadership tries to salvage some silver and gold in Parliament as Opposition. That is weak tea

Don’t FDC Party President Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu cares about all the ones who were detained for the cause? Doesn’t the rest of FDC NEC care to: Vice Chairman Proscovia Salaamu-Musumba, Leader of Oppostion Hon. Wafula Oguttu, Amb. Waswa Birigwa, Hon. Cecilia Ogwal, Hon. Jack Sabiiti, Patrick Baguma, Hon. Ronald Reagan Okum and Nabilah Naggayi Sempala. And others who might be on the FDC NEC meeting this week and decided for Hon. Winnie Kiiza and Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju.

Winnie Kiiza 26.05.2016

We are allowed to question after they we’re so hardline and astute during the campaign and after, as the FDC headquarters we’re besieged and even made as a crime-scene. Party Youth and other activists we’re taken, even just pedestrians passing by demonstrations gotten detained because of the cause, the defiance of the NRM and Museveni; something that is now lost. As the FDC NEC accept the military takeover and the Police Brutality of the party and the members. The Defiance Campaign from their standpoint is just nonsense, when they sell their cause for a meager and meaningless position. If it was a position worth a damn, wouldn’t the ambition of the man as Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi say “no” to it now. That because he knows how little it really matters.

The only one who has won on this is Museveni and his 10th Parliament that was rigged in favor and have the amount of MPs set for NRM Regime, so they set the standard and fixed to work well for Museveni, that is why the business as usual with Hon. Rebecca Kadaga as Speaker and Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah. They don’t care much for the opposition, and they will care even less, when they see how easy the FDC gave way. The Museveni have spoken many time to crash and crush opposition. This is a little kiss of death.

Like the one held by Special Forces Command who confirmed beaten Hon. Oulanyah in the rigged election Simon Tolit of Omoro County. NRM regime even tried to buy him with a job in Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) and 1.5 billion, so that he would silently go away from the victory, since he didn’t he got kidnapped for his defiance. So since he defying the business as usual, he has to now be detained in the mercy of the SFC.

Tolit Victory

With that in mind, The Museveni has the ability to tangle a little candy and the FDC NEC went to eat it. Instead of standing by the men and woman who have been and still are detained because of the Defiance Campaign, and actually defying the NRM Regime. That is just bickering sad and mediocre actions from the central leadership. They didn’t regain anything; they didn’t win anything and with taking the positions in Parliament, only lost…

After the knowledge of how little NRM plays a fair game, how it eats all parts of society and takes everything for itself, why validate the rigged election and now yet again look like a fish out of water?

They can’t be both winners with defiance and also losers with compliance, which is math that doesn’t add up. You can’t be both working against a Police State and being parts of it at the same time. You can’t hire certain MPs and use them as pawns and think that people will like it.

Mugisha Muntu 23.01.2016 Hoima District

The FDC should be defiant against the meager offer of silver. Said “No” give it UFA, DP or UPC. UPC should have had it, they are a Museveni branch anyway, and they are working hand in hand in harmony, something that FDC should not do. They should stand on the point that they won the election and deserves to be compensated and get justice. Not stand nodding heads to the NRM and say “Yes we do, Sir!” This is happening while Museveni is using the Police and SFC to detain the FDC to silence them and crashing them. For the Museveni, this is perfect for him, and worse for Besigye who are lost nearly alone in Luzira, while his party said “Yes” to tainted silver. Hope that silver saves you, because you gave way to Museveni and NRM Regime by doing so, instead of standing on the barricades and actually weaken his force, day after day, and make him more and more dishonest. Make him more and more paranoid as he would do what he could to silence you and the actions would tarnish him, more and more. Now he can get away with all the nonsense and Badru M. Kiggundu can say: “I was sort of right” since the FDC gave-up. Peace.

FDC’s Wafula Oguttu on the Eight Day of House-Arrest; also the served letter: “Invitation for an Interview and Statement Recording Vide CID Headquarters E/094/2016” (14.05.2016)

UPF Letter to Wafula Oguttu

Wafula Oguttu Statement: 

“Today is the 8th Day and still l can not breathe. The security forces are still besieging my residence.I do not know why they are doing that because they have not told me anything. Before they respect my constitutional right and tell me the reasons for the illegal incarceration, they have now delivered a police invitation for me to report to one Odongo Mark Paul ,Ag. Deputy SID, CIID Headquarters., tomorrow “Monday at 9.00am without fail for yet another issue, to explain the circumstances under you attend ” …. Dr Besigye ” unlawful swearing in”. Depending on when i get my lawyer, i will certainly be there” (Wafula Oguttu, 15.03.2016).

My two cents: 

They continue to have key-people of the Forum for Democratic Change behind locked doors in their own home or in prison. Detaining Opposition politicans are still under siege and kept silent in their homes. The NRM Regime does not care much for decency or honor. As Wafula Oguttu are invited for “Interview” while he has been hold unlawful under siege in his own home. Seems like the Police Officers should have addressed the situation as this is foolish. The continued harassment of them is just unjust. And nothing about is justice and freedom. This proves to what extent the NRM Regime goes to intimidate the Opposition and keep power. Not in Peace, but with full force of the Security Organizations. Peace.

FDC 14.05.2016

Court Order saying: “Magistrates Court in Rukungiri declares the 6 days detention as illegal and unconstitutional” (11.05.2016)

“Magistrates Court in Rukungiri declares the 6days detention as illegal and unconstitutional , issues another oder directing police of Rukungiri to immediately and unconditionaly release the Fdc youth leader mr Dickson Nampumuza” (Moses Byamugyisha, 12.05.2016).

Afterthought: 

I know the law and it is clear, but in the recent days the National Resistance Movement have not had any interest in keeping the society lawful or justice; when it comes to their citizens as the one-man are the key figure in the Nation and nobody else voice doesn’t matter. The almighty man who will be sworn-in at Kololo is more Important than these fellow citizens who are detained unlawful and is not getting their justice! Peace.

Lord Mayor Lukwago are on House-Arrest on the fourth day!

Lukwago 08.05.2016

As the times goes by the Uganda Police Force is still having the house of Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago under siege. They cannot help themselves and cannot stop with the interference of the Opposition. They have to be armed and be in resistance of themself. This is the day 4 of the House Arrest of the Mayor Lukwago. So the Police Force have occupied his street and his gate. If you wonder it is a breach of the laws of Uganda, but when has Museveni really cared about them? He does what he likes to the cost of the rest of the population.

Here is the words of Lukwago today: 

“DAY 4 of HOUSE ARREST. As pangs of hunger and exhaustion take a toll on the poor policemen, I had mixed feelings; either grab the opportunity of sneaking out or be humane and magnanimous enough to give them some little bite” (Lukwago, 08.05.2016).

I think that is enough for today! Peace.
