Another Day, Another Bail hearing for Besigye as his treason case is now 413 days old!

To say that Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leader and former Presidential Candidate Dr. Warren Kizza Besigye Kifefe (as almost everyone knows as Kizza Besigye), knows the court system of Uganda and knows the terms of his proceedings. He is still charged with treason, he was first charged in Moroto Magistrate Court on the 13th May 2016, which means his pending trial has lasted 1 year 1 month and 17 days in total or 413 days to be exact. That is severe violation and his times for bail hearings has been steady since then. Before this at least twice he has already vowed not to come back to Nakawa Court. Which isn’t strange, but that he does again today. Hopefully he will continue with defiance within his own realm, since that is needed. The State is clearly stalling time and keeping him at bay, with the easy monitoring of his acts and appearances all around in the Republic.

Here is today’s statement after being again at the Nakawa Magistrate Court after another bond/bail-hearing:

Some time back, I had decided not to come to Nakawa court, but at that time, my bail reporting which was at the high court (Registrar) was shifted to Nakawa Magistrate Court. I have been reporting here both for bail and therefore for appearance in the Magistrate Court. I think the time has come to also say no to the bail because it is the bail that was still bringing me here. So I have informed my lawyer that I will not come back to this court over this matter. They can cancel the bail, I have no problem at all- they can cancel the bail and take me back to prison if that is their wish. From today, I will not come back to Nakawa Magistrate court for appearance or for bail. I will not appear in this court on 1st, Sept, 2017.” – Dr. Kizza Besigye

All who has followed the situation or understand the simple plain fact, that if the government had a case against Dr. Kizza Besigye, it would been in the works and the bail-hearings would just continue. Since they haven’t really started any investigation or planned anything. If it was so, there would be more collecting evidence against him and the FDC Party. Because if this was a serious case, they would have done more with the first days after the General Election in 2016 and the Swearing-In.

But the Police Force and the State Legal Team hasn’t considered or done so, this has been for a show and been to keep the FDC and Besigye occupied. Not a serious charge, neither an honest investigation into the supposed crimes against the state. If the republic really feared Besigye and though of him as an arch-criminal, they would have made sure he was indicted and gone through the court process. Therefore, the whole operation has been to stop him from working against the state. But not really trying him for treason.

Unless, they have reports and affidavits of the ones knowingly of his acts of treason comes forward, unless the justices and judges are making a case worth damn. Which seem unlikely at this point, since May 2016 has left, the same has May 2017. Its over a year and nothing. Tiwali, non, any kind of way you say nothing. Besigye if he had done anything treacherous they would have actually gotten the intelligence and the culprits together with him. They would have all been soaking time in Nalufenya. Were none of the bandits that tried to counter the state are kept. Certainly a man who does a treasonous usually doesn’t do it alone.

But hey, maybe the Republic and the Courts has some answers for their one period of keeping the suspense and has some secrets at the Okello House, as there usually all acts of the State is sanctioned from. Peace.

Opinion: NRM works on overtime to delegitimize the FDC though various media, since they are themselves an illegitimated regime!

fdc-01-12-2016

There are running battles between the shadows of the Movement and the Forum for Democratic Change has been going on for a while. This has happen as Secretary General Nathan Nandala-Mafabi wrote this in the EALA Nomination letter to the 10th Parliament wrote: “These clearly spell out the positions of the Ruling Party and the Official Opposition Party in the multiparty democracy. In regard to numerical strength. EAC Treaty is also clear on multiparty democracy”.

So now that the FDC is the official opposition party and not the winner of the General Election 2016, even though the rigging master Eng. Dr. Badru M. Kiggundu of the Electoral Commission and the deputy chief justice Stephen Kavuma had to ban the campaign of defiance, that was the Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye who run hard against the ruling party and the ruling regime of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his National Resistance Movement.

So with that in context, the months after has been smeared with irregularities and malfunctions as the NRM and their Police has targeted FDC with full force. This they did with detaining members and leaders without court order, house-arrests, blocking of the headquarters and all sorts of other injustices done with an ordinary fashion of contempt of the constitution and law. These have been done as the 10th Parliament was sworn-in and the President was busy having dignitaries from Turkey and South Korea.

mwenda-and-kagame

Now that 2017 has arrived and ever since December 2016 the Independent Magazine editor and founder Andrew Mwenda has gone all wild on social media. At the same time TVO has disgraced him and his magazine. The graceful attempts have not been there as the words have addressed each other in fashions that would be in bars and not all in public. So Mwenda are using all tricks with his connections as he even seemingly has traded his popularity and his work ethic for goods from the ruling regime. Because he has gone from being a fierce critic of the Movement and now he defends them.

With this in mind Mwenda has attracted and attacked with more and more staunch words, even as he becoming a laughing stock and a wild-card. Even if he would have pieces of truth, the spin and the propaganda fashion of it all is spoiling facts that might be there. Just like Uganda Media Centre and Hon. Ofwono Opondo spills the beans and defends the Movement with all means. Though his entitled way of sounding more like a NRM Spokesperson than a man who is government spokesperson is showing the transgression of the party itself; just like the NRM inner party election for the EALA done over two days there.

This is still not an issue in nation of Uganda and under the rule President Museveni, which want to be legitimate by every mean possible. Therefore he uses the media and false stories on NTV Uganda where the Party Constitution of FDC is in question. As NTV Uganda wrote yesterday:

A plan to amend the constitution of Uganda’s main opposition party, the Forum for Democratic Change could cause a huge rift among its members if it goes through. The plan is to change clauses in the constitution to allow former FDC leaders another go at the helm of the party. According to the movers, many of FDC’s past leaders have been rendered useless to the party and yet they still have a lot to offer.” (NTV Uganda, 08.02.2017). However, as the story unfolded the FDC leadership debunked the story, Besigye said he would never run as a candidate under that or heard about it. TVO came out saying it was Mwenda who was the source and Hon. Francis Mwijukye wrote this about the farce:

“ Am told that there was a confusing story on NTV last evening about ammending the FDC constitution. Will be hosted on NTV Uganda 8.00 to 8.30am today morning. Let me go and make it clear. I think I was misquoted” (…) ”We were asked about the future of former FDC leaders and party founders. All I said was that I would support an inclusion in the party constitution of a party organ to deal with a council of Elders whose sole role would be to advise where necessary and for institutional memory. There was nothing like allowing former leaders to compete for top FDC positions in the party asked to me. Otherwise I can’t support that amendment” (Mwijukye, 08.02.2017).

When the higher echelons from the FDC are addressing the matter nearly simultaneously with the clip of the story aired, there are clear indications of malpractices in the standard. The NTV surely did this for political purposes. Just as there we’re reports that NTVs Sheila Nduhukire did directly celebrate with the NRM Party when they had done their EALA Primary Elections at the State House. Certainly the media and media houses are getting to close to the ruling regime.

We can just expect that government fuel illegitimate stories in their portrayal to demoralize and legitimize their own existence in power. Because they cannot do it by their own merit anymore, that gravy train left the station long time ago. They will use all means to establish and make the blatant ignorance of Mwenda and use their connections in NTV Uganda to portray the FDC as wolfs or even better wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The NRM and the Movement cannot sell the truth at this point, because that will undress their own existence and their own established fanfare of just cause. The probable cause that has left long time ago, the decades of bribes, thieving and misgivings has now caught up with them. The rigging and ill-forced ways are now what entitles people and therefore EALA elections are ugly instead of silent shows of democratic balloting. The NRM has to use the media and spin to make their biggest threat FDC into a shambolic affair of political charade. Since they have the ability themselves to make itself look unwise.

So the spins and the lies of deception will continue to fluster from the NRM and their media hawks, but still the truth will shine in the end. Peace.

Besigye not returning to Nakawa Court over the forged “Treason” Charges!

besigye-court-25-01-2017

Kizza Besigye: “It’s costly both in time and resources to keep coming to this court for charges that are not going anywhere. I would like to respectfully tell you that I will not be coming back to this court over this matter” (NBS TV Uganda, 25.01.2017)

It’s been now months upon months end. He has been back and forward between the courts and the prisons to address a treason charge that has gone nowhere. It is in the air, but not letting the man himself breath. The man we are talking about is the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Dr. Kizza Besigye get rest.

The Police Force and the legal instruments continues to pound on the man, they continue to fling his flesh into court, without new evidence or affidavits to salvage a case; therefore the preliminary acts should be to dissolve and stop working on the case. Stop wasting time in the courtroom and use of space for real cases of breaches of law. That is not something the National Resistance Movement regime has any indication of caring about. They just want to silence the Opposition leader and continue to keep him at bay. Since he has bail-hearings coming every month at the Nakawa Court and the Kabale Magistrate Court that still works on forged case since Walk to Work demonstrations back-in-the-day.

They are continuing to issuing new legal breaches without evidence or any concurring acts of evil intent. This is happening on a basis of silencing him and stopping him from having an ordinary life and stopping his work as a political figure in Uganda. That is the real wish of the Courts and the NRM Regime. To stop Besigye from acting and talking, questioning and achieving the dismantling of their rule.

The ploy and gig is up. It should be in the wind. The horns of deluded mindful ignorance of the ruling regime should be stop and the curve of just rule should appear. However, the reality is that FDC and Besigye can still get under hot water and taken by the law without any consideration.

We are here at a crossroad or junction where the fraud and fiction is more close to the reality than the truth and facts. If mere facts, evidence or even affidavits actually presented to the court, if witnesses and proof of the alleged crimes had materialized to the court. Than the case would matter and the alleged treason charge would mean something. However, at this point it don’t and it doesn’t, it is mere fiction from the NRM regime. A tale of long standing grievences against the opposition and their leaders continue with impunity and injustice. Peace.

Kizza Besigye’s document on Police ‘Acknowledgement of Prisoner’s Property’ (16.11.2016)

besigye-16-11-2016

Besigye tear-gassed and still arrested at Kiira Road Police Station!

besigye-16-11-2016-p3

As he earlier in the day left the Nakawa Magistrate Court and drove further down Gyaza Road, the Police incepted him as the crowds around his. As usual the Police starting towing the White Van from the area and unto the compound of the Kiira Road Police Station. Something that has dozen times in past and not the first, nor the last time Dr. Kizza Besigye, the nemesis of Museveni will end there.

So the Kampala Metropolitan Police has decided to let him be in his cars for ours. Not allowed to leave it or let anybody see him. As the Police Officers in and around their compound has tear-gassed the area. Which means that they have tear-gassed Dr. Kizza Besigye and the people around the Police Station. This all has happen without any indication of the crime or reason for the day’s arrest of Besigye. Another proof of the ignorant belligerent Police Force currently working under President Museveni.

Stop the Police Brutality and nonsense! Peace.

Besigye again at Nakawa Court pending the Treason Charge; later in the day detained at Kiira Road as well!

besigye-16-11-2016

The nonsense courtship of Dr. Kizza Besigye continues as he was towed from Uganda House to the Courtroom, because valid reasoning for the Police Force at this point, is actually pointless. They just keep his house under siege and house-arrested without warrants and without fresh charges, in the view of the Political Sphere right now, Besigye is guilty for existing.

Therefore his quote in court after being charged in May 13th 2016 by the State Attorney with the Treason Charge section 23 under the Penal Code Act by the powerful D/SSP Mark Odongo of Moroto Magistrate Court. The days he we’re airlifted from Kampala in the midst of darkness while the President Museveni we’re making ready for his Swearing-In Ceremony in bliss lights of dictators at Kololo. Oh Gee, since May the Courts have bounced Besigye more around than Mario Ballotelli have scored this year in the French League.

So when Dr. Kizza Besigye says this, it’s within his right:

“Its now six months since I was arrested but up to now the state has not found the case against me, this court should have dismissed this case if it has powers to do so. I’m not coming back to this court, when they are done with the investigation they can inform me, they know my address or if they want they can arrest me and put me in until they finish their investigations” Dr. Kizza Besigye

President Museveni is now continuing his impunity towards his fellow Opposition, because he knows that he is not popular and has to silence them. The indication is from the rallies recently around up-country where the masses have showed giant support for Besigye and his struggle, which at this is all of theirs.

IGP Kale Kayihura can continue to be the laughingstock and the FBI honorary Police Officer, but his acts is vicious and show of the level of disgrace towards common-sense and justice towards a citizen, who just happen to question the legitimacy of Museveni’s overstaying Presidency.

besigye-16-11-2016-p2

As he left for his home in Kasangati, the Police Van took him to the Kiira Road Police Station, as the crowds on Gyaza Roads circulated his car. Which makes the Dictator Museveni sneeze. So the Police had to arrest him again and surely will write him off with a “Procession” charge of some kind, I guess, because that is their M.O.

Peace.

Hon. Kabaziguruka finally put on bail; free from the shackles of the fabricated charges!

hon-kabaziguruka-20-10-2016

Good news, sort of as Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka the honourable Member of Parliament from Nakawa District of Kampala is finally released from his Treason charges after months in detention. Being detained, house ransacked, under house-arrest and all kind of treatment at Special Investigation Unit at Kireka and been at Makindye Magistrate Court and Makindye Military Court, even has he was a civilian and not a military man.

ON the 8th of June 2016 he we’re arrested and detained for charges of Treason, as CP Enaga himself proclaimed to the world that it was a sensitive matter. The sensitive matter was to try to fabricate a story of wishes to overthrow by force the President Museveni; and use that as a target to get former Auditor General Fred Ruhindi into Parliament again.

Well, as the demoted MPs are already many by that time, it would be beautiful fairy-tale that fitted Museveni’s deluded paradigm of power and deception. The Fabricated nonsense of idiocrasy where the powers of becoming Middle-Income in his time as his economy is weaken, lesser fiscal cash as the foreign donor-funding dwindle together with meagre foreign loans as even World Bank suspends their fiscal loans for the State budget. They even suspended loans for the Infrastructure development through Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA).

In this world of fictions from National Resistance Movement under the leadership of Museveni where so many opposition has gone to court, detained for no apparent reason that they are opposition; Hon. Kabaziguruka got into trouble as well for running a successful campaign and knowing his constituency.

The Courts might ban Defiance and other campaigns in their suspended belief in Multi-Party Democracy as a token of allegiance to Museveni. Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma might do something in the reason of Steady Progress instead of rule of law. As the days and many days for now that the Hon. Kabaziguruka has been detained without any evidence of ill will and conspiracy ever been true.

If they would have had any case to deliver and been an honest court-system than a citizen like Michael wouldn’t have tried to been tried in a Military Court first, before taken back to Magistrate Court.

court-20-10-2016

He is free and is on bail. Finally out of the shackles of a fabricated case. As reported:

High Court in Kampala has today granted a cash bail of Shs5 million on addition to another non-cash bail of Shs10 million to release our Nakawa Division Garrison Commander, Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka, who is being facing treachery charges before the Army court” (…) “The presiding judge Yasin Nyanzi however, ordered Kabaziguruka to report to the court registrar every after 15 days as part of his bail conditions. And in case he’s to travel outside Uganda, he should report to the court registrar for permission”.

With this in mind his case is still pending and will continue… because the Government and NRM Regime cannot help themselves. They do this to the ones who defy them. Peace.

Besigye’s “Treason Charge” adjourned to mid-November 2016; Waiting indefinite to Sentence him as they are silencing the People’s President through another day of Mock-Court!

besigye-12-10-2016

Just as we are talking today we’re in mid-October and the Presidential Election are already months away and the Treason charge continues to linger over the life Forum for Democratic Change Dr. Kizza Besigye. He had to today again had to pass out of his home in Kasangati, that has been besieged around the weekend and been detained without reason or charge during the Independence Day, he was that together with many of the FDC leaders and FDC Youth League who we’re captured like their we’re doing co-operated effort to directly undermine the authorities, instead of celebrating the Nation 54 years of Independence from the United Kingdom and their British Empire.

Well, let’s be clear that is not cool, no matter what excuse the poor excuse for a man called AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi displays of meagre character and use of laws that makes CP Fred Enaga into a legend of spin-control. That says more about the Police Force disposition as the carrier of rule of law and instead their work to institutionalize their oppressive behaviour against the Political Party and their Defiance Campaign.

Today as the Treason Charged man called Besigye we’re passing through from his homestead towards the Nakawa Court. He we’re blocked at Sheraton Hotel as the Police Force wouldn’t even let him answer to the call of a case that the DPP Mike Chibita hasn’t been able to carry out the collection of evidence or credible courtship for Besigye. The Treason Charge against Besigye we’re filed on the 13th May 2016 from the CID Headquarters of the Police Force, the noble man charging him we’re D/SSP Mark Odong. He must surely be remembered for signing of on this nonsense as the loyal muppet he is for the NRM Regime. Here are the words that Besigye said on the Court-Steps of Nakawa today!

Besigye addressing the Press today:

”I am about to protest coming to this court, I will continue fulfilling my conditions of bail on the same case. When they are ready they will call. It’s been more than 5 months since o was arrested and there is still no case that they have to present against me”.
Again: Nakawa court adjourned the treason case to 16th November 2016. Postponing the case indefinite to make his life in the limbo and courting him like they have done for years for charges under the Walk to Work, even in Kabale Court, which still in 2016 is not yet finished or even sentencing on year upon end; the phony charges and court games are used to silence and stop the Opposition leader from having capacity to live normal and work as a political figure against Mzee. That is the plan all along.

Sorry, wange, sorry brother; it’s enough, your gig is up. Please stop the Mock-Courts, the Kangaroo Courts and the misuse of funds to save face. Wait, the Ugandan Government cannot get enough money to keep the upkeep of Makerere University Hospital or Electricity at times for Mulago Referral Hospital, while the President has funds to buy new Russian Helicopter to his expansive US aided army. Peace.

Opinion: Can’t Museveni create his One-Party state already? I’m getting tired of this nonsense!

Museveni-with-a-dummy-map-of-uganda

Today I read and not in aw that the Uganda Police Force have not allowed the Forum for Democratic Change have separate Luuka celebration or celebration or possessions on the Independence day and in the Independence week. So initially the only ones independent and free is the ones following allegiance to the ruling regime and National Resistance Movement. As the others has to follow their program and effort, bow in silence and with relief of their limited liberty.

The ashes and razors of the Movement are now clear. The dusts of past glories are now overshadowing the marginalization’s of the open multi-party democracy that President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni never really wanted or in-accurately really wanted to usher in. As the double unknown ballots and elections got it in. Still, the well rigged machinery and securing control of selected men has continued as the skeleton of free democracy has been there, but none in the sense that people really elected the men and woman to rule the nation. Because that we’re chosen from the National Executive Committee of the Movement or from the head itself.

In clarity I am tired of the charades of courtship when there ones taken there are for show or for the reason of making it look like rule of law. When the reality seems more following orders, than following laws and the institutions of justice; the elections are more fragile fully fledged money hungry politicians who ask for favours than trying to come with real policies or political framework to change Uganda. The few who do is very few and the Electoral Commission leaves very little circumstance as they cook the ballots to fit the program of President Museveni and by no-chance in burning hell leave the Parliament to other parties than his beloved Movement.

The initial tiredness today is not only because of the House-Arrest of Dr. Kizza Besigye, the knowledge of many FDC Youths lingering in jail, FDC members and leaders with the same faith, Democratic Party Youth and Leaders detained and political activists waiting trial and detained at random. That is just vicious effect of the political space and thin air of judgement from the master on top that want to have total control of monies, power and trying to capture respect.

President Museveni, do yourself a favour, I am tired and those who see what you do is tired. Not as the recess of Parliament is until 14th November, after a lousy-goosy month of September when the Parliament even we’re closed-up for while many MPs travelled to United States on Seminar. No the tired Mr. President comes from one thing, the impunity and the accessibility of liberty and freedom for other than the Movement. It is so limited for the rest like a parade.

Beti Kamya M7 01.09.2016

Museveni, the Parade, see what I got, see what I got: I got the Democratic Party, Uganda People’s Congress and so on; though he won’t be proud of FDC and the other defiance chapter of Multi-Party democracy he wished in his heart that everybody we’re as soft as Hon. Beti Kamya of Uganda Federal Alliance or Hon. Jimmy Akena of the Uganda People’s Congress.

So when the Police Force is continuing to disallow a political party to act, to be apart or have their own. They are struggling just to be allowed to have consultation meetings before the Campaign trial of General Election 2016. This is the proof of the little wish the Police Force and the Movement wants them to co-exist. They only let the ones co-exists if they are no threat or just for show. There are times the Democratic Party have been taken by local Police by just campaigning at night, while President Museveni had a car and lights into the late evening on his trail. It’s just a façade of rule of law and multi-party democracy.

And when it is sham, a charade and a façade, because that is what it is at this point. With the main contender, the power-broker behind bars in his own humble home in Kasangati. Besigye is the one that cannot be contained behind his gate and President Museveni knows this. He is creating havocs on his own with the force of his security organizations called the Police.

President Museveni your games should stop. Your nonsense and your misbehaving should stop and you should just close the gates. Something you really never wanted to open. You are not a democrat and never wanted to act as one. This is your only way to rise to power we’re through a Bush-War and devious killings of close allies and enemies to settle score to stay in power.

museveni-police-day-2016

You can use all kind of laws to settle the score, to keep them at bay and silence them. That is why the oppressive behaviour and the continuation of deliberate acts impunity and taking away freedom and justice for the ones who allegiance to other than the Movement. This is the proof of the recent act of Luuka preparations. As the FDC did comply with Public Order Management Act to file in the request for a public political event; as they did so the Police ordered it unlawful as they often do.

There we’re rare luck that the FDC and even Go-Forward at some point in recent months could without any consideration act as free parties, they had to comply with the law; while the NRM and their henchmen could file in the last minute and still be allowed. They nearly did it to save face, not because they really needed it; it was on order from the President to have meetings and celebrations at Kololo Independence Grounds or anywhere else for that matter. But if somebody else where to have something going on, than they had to apply and by luck get allowed to have meeting of their party!

This is something that remains a factor and not a relief this continuation and pro-longed fake democracy and fake ballot-stuffing piece of nonsense that keeps the Parliament and the Local Government in the control of the President; nobody else vision matter, they never have that is why he helped overthrow the other and became a rebel. For President Museveni nobody else’s vision for Uganda matters only his. President Museveni doesn’t even trust enough in his heir of Brig. Muhoozi or Maj. Gen. Muhoozi to be able to rule over anything else then the Special Force Command.

FDC HQ 19.02.2016 Police Siege

At this point of time the Movement and their President isn’t really caring about liberty, freedom or justice; if so the FDC wouldn’t be in trouble over a having a citizen travelling back to the homeland. If the Movement and the ruling regime cared for democracy than they would let the FDC and their members be free to congregate and do party work; instead the Movement uses the Police to siege the home of Besigye, treason charge on Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka, besieging the FDC Headquarters of Najjankumbi and all the other Political Activists who are behind bars.

They are all in the Courts, Detained at the Police Posts and the ones awaiting trial for being part of the wrong party at the wrong time. That is not democracy or justice that is the vision and the will of the President who built this system and fragile institutions that cannot even be able to fight corruption; unless they report directly to him so he can fix it. That is 30 years of concrete planning and marginalize the institutions and procedures so they have to go by the President if they ever where to become something or help somebody.

The Movement right now is the only Party and Institution who are allowed to co-exist with the Government. Well, it is the Government and runs the Government so that Ofwono Opondo can spell-out his lies and deceit still getting paid by hour. That is the wishes of this gracious king, sorry His Excellency President Museveni.

So please, please President Museveni does yourself a favour this façade and charade is too old for the world, for your cow-farming and for your tricks of old. Its time relax; continue to thieving of government funds while getting NGOs to feed the starving refugees as you have had. This while foreign donors get to take land for their business and your citizens get into PoC camps. There is time to silence the critics and be your true self. That is being the anti-democratic person who only believes in his own vision. The vision of your own power and rule is the only one that matters; the rest is rubbish and nonsense. Peace.

Besigye under house-arrest, yet again!

besigye-05-10-2016

The Uganda Police Force has put the former Presidential Candidate and Forum for Democratic Change flag-bearer under house arrest as he just arrived from diaspora. Yesterday he was towed from the Central Business District of Kampala after visiting the Crane Bank.

Therefore this morning… the Police are keeping him under siege again without any court order as they fear his presence as it turns into processions and public reactions to the man being free.

“The police mouthpiece Andrew Felix Kaweesi told Chimpreports on Wednesday that the blockade was only precautionary in nature. “We stopped Dr. Besigye from leaving home today under preventive measures. We had received intelligence reports that he and his group had organized to cause havoc in the city,” Kaweesi told us” (…) “Whenever we get information of planned unrest we act. We’re also are using a containment approach which is keeping close watch on all his movements and activities,” he said.” (Waswa, 2016).

This is what the rule of law has boiled down to:

Besigye is not allowed to justice, freedom or liberty. While his “Treason Charge” is being prolonged as possible; Dr. Kizza Besigye is not allowed to leave his home anymore. The Uganda Police Force is claiming that he is the problem. Their reasoning is that Besigye is causing a stir; initially it is the Police who cause it together with orders from above high.

Besigye is claimed to be the problem, not the police who uses the tear-gas, batons on the civilians and roadblocks to create havoc. That is not something one political person is doing on his own that is the Police making. Since it is like that the innocent man Besigye who has fought for justice is deliberately taken away from him.

The unrest is created by Police as they are trying to contain a popular man who has the support of the people, that is why there are only hired crowds and many people on the parades of Museveni as they are served and paid for their travels; while Besigye shows up on every corner and shows that he is the legitimate leader. Something that the leadership cannot handle at the moment… that is why the Police have troubles with Besigye! Peace.
