The continuous harassment of the Opposition in Uganda; detained up-to 150 and more to come as the Swearing-In is around the corner!

Lukwago 09.05.2016

There are certain levels of misogyny and agony of the civilians and Opposition leaders that have their houses surrounded and the Police Force closely detaining them.

The levels of impunity and the access of them with that the Media is silenced and stopping to write on it as they fear the National Resistance Movement. The Media and Journalist fears the government so much that they even right after Hon. Jim Muhwezi said it was banned stopped saying the word “Defiance” on live TV; it was so hilarious and sad at the same time.

Today there is still nothing clarified with the whereabouts of Ingrid Turinawe, during the night Wafula Oguttu went from being monitored to become house-arrested. Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda is detained, Lord Mayor Lukwago is house-arrested, Dr. Kizza Besigye is house-arrested, Francis Mwijukye is either house-arrested or detained as his state is not cleared. There are estimated that the FDC Party have a 150 members and leaders in total together with the ones mentioned in jail, house-arrest and detained.

Interim Order Court Uganda April 2016 P1

The word Defiance is banned and the campaign of the opposition is by an unlawful decree or court order illegal. Which have made Forum for Democratic Change them illegal and all activity from them the same. By the ways the Police Force are acting and detaining them. Harassing them and taking them in. Without real charges or illegal activity as the Ruling Party NRM have troubles with Prayers and wearing Blue shirts in the country of Yellow and Steady Regress.

The Ruling Party NRM and President Museveni is gearing up for the Swearing-In to his 7th Term, though officially 5th Term, but it is Seventh Term because I does not cut away the first decade of his rule as he was unelected to that part. He grabbed the first ten-years in power and have done it again. Therefore he has to made FDC illegal!

MuseveniandIdiAmin

The Ruling Party is saying they are starting a NEW ERA with the Swearing-In on the 12th May, if that means to be draconian empire run by a President Museveni who eats alone. Who makes other thinkers and other men and woman criminal by a law that gets used when it fits the Executive! President Museveni is so controlling and so overbearing that he goes into investigations of killings of a Boda-Boda driver, all of sudden shows up at Hospital and complain at the underpaid staff that they are lazy, while his institutions are not delivering as promised equipment or medicines as the monies for this is embezzled by his loyal cronies!

The New Era is and will start with not the words of democratic values as it was ushered in, back in the day, even if there were uncertainties at the time as Museveni had no wish to open up the space for multi-party democracy. And it is now proven that he really never wanted it. It was just done to silence the foreign donors so he could be a continued fueled by donor funding to keep the budget balanced. Now he seems not to care.

Kampala 05052016 Arrest

The New Era starts with relics of the past oppression of opposition. They are detained and arrested. Some are even charged with terrorism by local courts. The other are detained for long and detained in jail. The proud regenerate government that was supposed to deliver something new and make the country stable and safe, not only for the political elite, but also for the people! That is what is happening now and therefore the NRM elite is trying to defend the inaccurate interim order that makes this all happen and mask the illegality of these arrest. As I cannot believe any nation, not even North Korea has laws where the “Prayers for the Nation” is banned and directly illegal.

The Police are surrounding the homes and detaining the FDC leaders in their homes and the silence of the media comes as result of the assault of the freedoms of speech and political liberty of people to choose their political aspiration. Seemingly is that the oppression and the levels of Police brutality as the ruling regime wish to have a silenced country in the coming days as the President is making himself ready for the Swearing-In at Kololo Independence Grounds.

So what more can the Police do then fill the prisons with the FDC members and leaders. House-Arrest their leaders and take them away with no charge or criminal activity behind them. The Police under Museveni is making the FDC the enemy and with a vile force, they might have detained at most 50 FDC leaders in 2011, but now they are up to 150! They want to rewrite history as the rule is illegitimate and not just. The truth is so and therefore President Museveni is Swearing-In with the gun and with the civilians and political advisories detained and house-arrested or taken away to unknown location.

FDC HQ 09.05.2016

Also the continued siege of the FDC Headquarters at Najjankumbi where the Police are entering and are arresting the FDC staff and bannishing the journalist from the property. As viable proof of the extent the NRM Regime is hassling with the guns to silence the FDC at this point. They are not allowed with party works or with orginizing their party as they are now totally in the mercy of the Police Force who got ‘Carte Blanche’  to take them all without charges or questions. They have even beaten the journalist who are there at the FDC Headquarters to learn them the lesson of not following instructions from the ruling regime.

In numbers the talley of who has been taken today alone: 

“4 FDC leaders have been kidnapped.
1 senior attorney is languishing in hard-core criminal investigation police torture facility.
50 plus FDC Rukungiri supporters including leadership members.
37 other FDC activist brutaly arrested for attending prayers” (Moses Atocon Atyekwo, 09.05.2016).

His Power is not fueled by the People, the popular ballot, but instead by the force of the Police and the Army. As long as he is paying them and making them and the leadership of the army and police happy, then he might sustain, but the people should think about if the FDC and the FDC leadership can be taken without impunity, who is next? Are you or your neighbor as the Police will round you up in your home and detain you at the Police Post or the nearest Prison. Certainly the levels of arrests and detaining is gone too far as the unlawfulness of the NRM is in full bloom! Peace.

The Oppression of the Opposition in Uganda; continues with vile force from the Calvary!

Ingrid Turinawe

Today on the 8th May of 2016 there is continued oppression of the Forum of Democratic Change as their Defiance Campaign continues!

FDC Mobiliser Ingrid Turinawe have been followed by the Police, and also been monitored by them. She first drove out of their home as they then stalked after her. Ingrid then drove down to Gayaza Trading Centre as the Police followed her. She was arrested around Kyetume Road in Gayaza as the Police surrounded her and have arrested her there.

Wafula Oguttu

He is not arrested by he has been monitored and followed in the recent days by the Police, the FDC leader Wafula Oguttu. The Police have been spying on his movement and not given him peace. As of last evening they even drove around his gate at 10:00 AM on a Saturday evening!

In Entebbe the Express Football Club coach Alex Gitta Mulibanga was arrested on the 5th May as the demonstrations was happening. Yesterday the Police continued his detaining him (7th May), but now put him behind bars at Kigo Prision.

Defiance Pens

As the levels of arrests in Rukungiri yesterday; there been reported that 20 FDC activists was arrested and charged with terrorism at local courts without evidence or any affidavit as the authorities wanted to silence the Political Party in the area. Today as a reaction to actions of the Police Force towards the local Political activist, have entered into anger. There are now reports of the Burning of the Electoral Commission offices in Rukungiri. The media is not allowed to see the offices as the Police are denying entrance to the area where the office is. So the media cannot verify it…

Kololo 09.04.2016 P3. Entertainer

It’s also been said from the official media that all the Presidential Candidates was invited to the Swearing-In of President Museveni at Kololo on the 12th May. But here was the answer from Dr. Kizza Besigye on the matter:

“I haven’t received the invitation yet but if receive it, it will go directly to the nearest dust bin. I will not attend a fake function”.

So the Opposition are still under fire as the Ruling National Resistance Movement is not delivering them peace or taking care of the citizens instead making them criminals for their peaceful assembly and their civil disobedience. Therefore we can feel the tension that is created between civil society and the Police Force, who has all the violence and powers to apprehend fellow citizens as shown in recent days.

This will continue. Peace.  

The Calvary have Charged fellow FDC Youth with a “Terrorism Charge” because he delivered Food to detained FDC Activist in Rukungiri!

Uganda FDC 101015 P3 Rukungiri

Dickson Nampumuza; the Rukungiri District FDC youth activist has been “Charged with Terrorism”. He was arrested while taking food to other FDC youths who are in detention at Rukungiri Police Post!

This is what the Uganda Police Force and the Magistrate Court’s do right now. Take innocent civilians and make them criminals. Just as I have written before. The ones that defy the government now is a criminal and will be courtside. Even for offences that doesn’t exisist. Just like this one. This proves the value of the NRM Regime for the moment and the value of justice in the country. Nothing seem to far fetched as the Police and the other Security Organizations can do as they please, while fellow citizens are prosecuted for taking care of each other. National Resistance Movement is not legitimate when they make a man who delivers food to fellow citizens a criminal. Peace.
