NRM continue to address the public with violence if they lose power; a sign of toxic leadership from Mzee.
There will be a media event from Uganda Media Centre at 10 where they will talk about the Pre-Election environment, the government should talk about what their own men is saying and doing. I will not comment more on the NRM SG Justine Kasule Lumumba and IGP Kale Kayihura how they would shoot and arm Crime Preventers. This here is a continuation of it. Where the NRM people spoke their minds and continue with fear-mongering. In a level that is sky-high.
“In the event that President Museveni is defeated in General Election, the country should expect violence!” (…)”where shall we go if Museveni is defeated? We shall not accept it!” warns NRM Chairman Ssegawa Katumba in Masaka on the 30th January in 2016.
Well, this says it all about the ignorant blatant attitude from the NRM Chairman of Masaka. That he is claiming that the rise of violence will happen if the NRM is defeated. This proves that they can’t accept losing power and their answer is to not accept it. Their answer with violence, as the will of change of guards is not accepted by people like him. Proves the opinions and leaders of NRM have learned well from their master, because he speaks like he was the clone of Mzee.
“When a farmer stores his millet and rats keep stealing it does not mean the farmers should give up farming. You must continue farming and look for methods to kill the rats. You must put a cat to catch the rats. During the colonial times, there was a subcounty chief but this was replaced by LC III. We also have the LCV chairman at the district. These are the people to catch the rats that steal money meant for service delivery” said Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at a rally in Hoima in 29th January 2016.
Mzee has the ideas and speak like Andrew Mwenda, seems like they have become brothers in spirit. He has to go back to colonial time, and the issue is not for the farmer, the farmer should continue to produce while the production can still be stolen from. He also blames the local leaders for bad service delivery. That is a way of Mzee to clean his hands. Mzee is never to blame, it’s either his PM, Members of Parliament, Opposition, the Western donors and never himself. He wish the local people take down the corrupt forces in the country, that means the people should initially go after the NRM and the Local Government, who happens to be NRM. It is just bloody brilliant that he says this, while we all wonder if the Government of Uganda ever will release the agreements between the Oil Companies and the Government. That would be an exciting read!
Mzee on losing power:
“How can you security officials let Besigye garner such huge crowds including in my own village where people are now chasing him with cash gifts and even fish? How did the intelligence machinery allow those opinion polls to show, I am dropping down with over 25% like the price of cabbages; while Besigye is rising astronomically like the prices of Gold? You have now made Besigye hot-headed and tomorrow he will start behaving here like his friends Ouattara (president Ivory Coast) and that other one called Raila (former PM, Kenya). This is too dangerous for my health, I can’t stand the shame should Kiggundu (EC chair) declare Besigye the President…no I will not let that happen, I will commit suicide. General Katumba Wamalwa (UPDF) & General Kayihura (Police Chief) must ensure Besigye does not win, my supporters will also commit suicide. ” said Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in Mityana today 30th of January in 2016.
He we see how far it has gone, the man who blames everybody blames his own intelligence team and closest people around him for the great campaign Dr. Kizza Beisgye had in Kiruhura District, his home area where the public showed the gratitude for his campaign rallies there.
Mzee says he will turn around and be like Ouattara the man who got his own rebel army after losing a rigged election. I cannot see Dr.Kizza Besigye going that way, then he would have done it in previous elections. Dr. Kizza Besigye has also more people behind him then Raila Odinga ever will have in comparison.
That this hurts Mzee health is not strange with his continuation of Voter Tourism and paying crowds to show up to his campaigns. The expenses and travelling in his age must be eating his power to regain the power. The U.S. Embassy Polls must also hurt where he has 30% Mbabazi having 15% and Besigye 53%. That must be a hurtful to see that the people are not there for you. Usually you would have used an rhetoric where it sounded more like Ssegwa Katumba where the world would drop into pieces, the whole Ugandan country would end in anarchy and noting that you keeps holy would stay as long as you vote for NRM and Mzee. That is something to expect from Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, but the way he said this is still in the same lingo.
He promises that IGP Kayihura and General Wamala will use their forces of the police and army to get the citizens to understand the necessity of the NRM-Regime and his reign. The Public have to understand that with fear of the governmental violence and rigging. Because Mzee can’t lose power, then he stops breathing and will take his own life.
This is the most cult-leader like quote from Mzee, as saying; #if he did lose power!” he would expect “his loyal cronies would kill themselves together with him”. That is not pure-leadership qualities!
That is toxic leadership let me quote this for minute:
“Toxic leadership is a combination of self-centered attitudes, motivations, and behaviors that have adverse effects on subordinates, the organization, and mission performance. This leader lacks concern for others and the climate of the organization, which leads to short- and long-term negative effects. The toxic leader operates with an inflated sense of self-worth and from acute self-interest. Toxic leaders consistently use dysfunctional behaviors to deceive, intimidate, coerce, or unfairly punish others to get what they want for themselves. The negative leader completes short-term requirements by operating at the bottom of the continuum of commitment, where followers respond to the positional power of their leader to fulfill requests. This may achieve results in the short term, but ignores the other leader competency categories of leads and develops. Prolonged use of negative leadership to influence followers undermines the followers’ will, initiative, and potential and destroys unit morale” (Wilson, 2014).
This here is in the same place the same toxic ideas from Mzee go down to the system, in corruption and in eager for violence if they don’t vote for him. His eager to use force of the police and army to secure his position is not a sign of trust, but mismanagement between government and their citizens. This environment should be talked about it, I doubt it, since their will surely down talk the opposition and their behavior instead of looking at their closest allies as the toxic venom they sometimes address the public and the media. As I have covered before. Peace.
