Serious crackdown on the Opposition from the Police in Kampala as the Swearing-In Ceremony of President Museveni happens tomorrow; while the FDC continue to Counter the NRM-Regime even in the midst of Police harassment!

Kampala 11.05.2016

“There is news going around that I have passed away on social media. My relatives informed me about my death but I want to let the public know that I am ALIVE and in good health disregard those rumors. The news is that we have a President in Uganda he is HE Dr. Kizza-Besigye” – Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda

There are initial reports that the Police Force have attacked and dispersed the crowds with tear-gas and beaten them who meet around the car of Dr. Kizza Besigye as he drove around Central Kampala.

“Kampala warms up for the swearing in ceremony, students stranded in Qualicel park as tear gas rocks the street a head of Kiiza Besigye’s arrest” (Northern NewsWire, 11.05.2016).

Inspector General of Police Kayihura said “cars carrying building materials and fuel tankers have been burned from from accessing the central business district until Friday”.

“More than 300 junior police officers and 217 military personnel will be deployed as part of the tactical security team for President Museveni’s swearing in ceremony due to take place this Thursday” (Primeradio Kampala, 09.05.2016).

There been deployed over 1,000 extra Police Officers in Kampala as orders of IGP Kayihura. This is reported in the Obsever.ug at the 11th May 2016. As seen also the Police are re-directing the roads as central roads around Kololo Independence Ground.

Kampala 11.05.2016 UPDF Parade

Uganda Police Defense Force (UPDF) parading along the streets of Kampala following the swearing in of the president on Thursday.

This is happening while Vincent Kaggwa of NRM Poor Youth Leader arrested from his home today. Also Michael Kabaziguruka his home is sealed off by the Military Police and is not sure how the MP-Elect will be allowed to leave his home tomorrow!

As we speak the FDC Activist in Rukungiri is still detained MP-Elect Dickson Nampumuza of Rukungiri have even gotten Court Order that was set to release him, but the local Police Force denies him that, while also the other activist in the town are still detained without court order or charge while waiting for their destiny.

Entebbe 05.04.2016 Clear cut

Some FDC Activist we’re released in Entebbe:

“Entebbe Chief Magistrate’s Court has released five Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leaders and supporters who were arrested last week by police over allegations that they had planned to participate in the party’s countrywide defiance demonstrations. Her worship, Ms Mary Kaitesi, granted the five FDC members, who included the Entebbe party chairman, Mr Alex Gitta, a cash bail of Shs200,000” (EABizInfo.com, 11.05.2016).

So today another Political Party also get to see the Police Force:

“JEEMA Headquaters raided by armed police, instructing every one to leave. Armed Police deployed at the premises”.

What the Police do to every car going to Swearing-In:

“The Regional police commander Kampala East Siraje Bakaleke reveals that they have instructed DPCs throughout the country to provide security to all vehicles that will be transporting people to kololo to attend the swearing in ceremony” (91.0 Best FM, 11.05.2016).

Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

While this is what the Police will do for the NRM tomorrow:

“Kampala Metropolitan Area East Regional Police Commander (RPC) Siraje Bakaleke says police will escort buses ferrying NRM supporters to Kololo for the inauguration” (Observer.ug, 10.05.2016).

What more the Police does to prepare Kampala for tomorrow:

“Police deployed at the Kawuku along Entebbe road diversion. Only boda bodas and government vehicles are allowed to use the Entebbe main road ahead of President Yoweri Museveni inauguration ceremony tomorrow. Motorists diverted to Ssissa village” (Daily Monitor, 11.05.2016).

Besigye Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

If you wonder about Besigye: 

Dr. Besigye after riding in Central Kampala today was arrested and is now detained at Naggalama (Nagalama) Police Station in Mukono. So the Police Force couldn’t let the man have a day in freedom. That is to much to ask, right? 

Kampala 11.05.2016 Shops closed

There will be more and Police Force cannot help themselves to cause havoc and destroy the establish factum that the Swearing-In of the Declared President is a flawed Ceremony in the lights of maladministration, electoral fraud and cranked-out crack-down Police who attacks all people who can or should speak against the NRM. Therefore the ones who has a little inch of Defiance in their body will be detained or intimidated. The ones that are not close NRM Elite will not feel freedom as the Army and the Police use their weapons and ability to arrest fellow opposition at every possible moment.

Kampala 11.05.2016 Military

So the cars and people who are Forum for Democratic Change or other Opposition members will be under fire tomorrow and the days ahead as the Police and Government wants to shut-down all activities of other Political advisories as them all should be under the President Museveni line and listen to his vision and schemes for a steady regress… Peace.

FDC Activist arrested on Christmas Day!

fdc1

FDC activist in Kigumba , Yusuf Ramadhan , was arrested by police on Xmas day from his home and is now detained at Kiryandongo police post. This is political persecution because he refused to mobilize for NRM/Museveni and insisted on sensitizing his community on the message of change. We call on well wishers of change to come out and offer any support to stop persecution of change agents in Kigumba , Masindi Port and larger Kiryandongo district. We need legal support for the arrested.
