Opinion: Museveni, the liberator turned oppressor!

I am not a liberator. Liberators do not exist. The people liberate themselves.”Ernesto “Che” Guevara

Back-in-the-day, in a far-away timeline, early in the mid-80s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was seen as the liberator, the one who bring hope and possible make a transformational change. However, with time his shown that power is more important than results, than achievements and even his own legacy.

The Republic came out of terrible civil-war, a bush-war, depleted and destroyed after several years of bad leadership, corruption, nepotism and all the ills a society can have. There is no doubt about that from Idi Amin, Tito Okello, Godfrey Binaisa, Milton Obote II and so on. However, with time his started to use their tricks and become like the ones he defeated.

What is more striking is that Museveni has taken techniques used by Mobutu and Moi too. Just because he has the hang of it and can use their skill-set locally where he reside. That is just what he does with power.

He strikes with furious anger, he brings his enemies to their knees and he hope that gifts will turn them over on his side. If they don’t, then they will perish, they will suffer and regret that they opposed him. That is just what he does.

Even amongst his own, the ones former allies and people closely connected has perished and vanished. They have died by mysterious ways. Still, people will not address this or hope that people forget they even lived.

That is why it is interesting, that all the yes men, praising tarmac, bridges and vanity projects. Isn’t seeing that his destroying the economy, his enforcing his will onto every breathing person in the Republic and his misusing his power by arresting, detaining and deciding whose legally in trouble.

If your wearing the right hat, if you have broken the right code and if your treacherous. That is all his decision to make. The President that either bless you or disgrace you. The President can either give you a bread or ensure your dead. That is what he does and what paths his walking on.

He overpowers institutions, he silence radios, he stops the broadcast, he ensures loadshedding and he even sends the army to signal his MPs of what is the right direction. That is what he does, and nothing stops him.

That’s the New Vision, that is the future, the past and present. All in the same memo. The President has no trouble house-arresting, detaining and using safe-houses to silence dissidents. He has no trouble scarring people for life for standing up against him. Using military and security organization to stifle the political movements opposing. That is what he does and frequently.

That is why the opposition are evil and dangerous, because they challenge him. They are boggling his mind and his spirit. The eternal overlord spirit of Nakasero and Okello House. The grandest chief and mastermind, the great schemer and autocrat with a flair.

The National Resistance Movement was in its inception made because of one rigged election in 1980. However, they have presided over rigged elections since 1996 and continues to this day. The charade and hoopla happens with every junction. The President whose supposed to make a difference.

Does just the same. His acts are even more despicable because of that, because he knows. In his heart, in his spirit and his mind, he knows all of this. But he will not say that. That he betrayed his mission, his life achievement and the goals of the liberation. If he does, than he says his a failure and with an ego like him. That will never happen.

He rather aim a gun at me and shoot, then saying he was wrong and that betrayed the NRA. Since, that is what his done. They didn’t go to the bush to get wealthier than God and let Karamoja starve. No, it came to power to liberate and make a new Republic. Which it has done, but also continued on the ill behaviours of the past. To say otherwise is naive. The dead doesn’t speak, neither the hurt in the villages. But there are many lives scorn, just so the President can be in power. Don’t doubt that, if you do, than your neglecting the facts.

There will be a day of reckoning. I don’t know when, but it will happen, eventually. Because nothing last forever. At one stage, the house will loose and the people will win. We just don’t know when the central leadership gives way. Peace.

Opinion: In the mind of Museveni, there is no need for a succession plan, just because…[Insert excuse]!

Again, again and again, he retort and blaze fire to show that he is the only one with a vision, the only one who can run Uganda, because no one else has the capacity he has. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the one who has run the Republic since 1986. Has to understand, even if it is hard, that his isn’t the only leader capable of running the Republic. Even if his deluded mind is destroying that vision, because everyone else makes mistakes and doesn’t do things correctly, so Mr. Sunday can come in and save the day. That is just how it is, and how it has been. Here is a report of what happen at a National Resistance Movement meeting on 20th December 2017, when the heist of the century occur, as the state and NRM was launching his Life Presidency, though the abolishing the Article 102(b) of the Constitution. Those was the days, and at that day, Mr. President aka Sunday had to defend himself.

According to an NRM MP who was part of the meeting, Baryayanga waited for Museveni to conclude his speech before he dropped a question that made the president lose his cool. “You have talked about so many things, and we would really want to support you on this [amendment] but in all your statements, you are not talking about the transition; when you intend to leave power yet some of us would want to be President of Uganda. When are you planning to retire?” Baryayanga reportedly asked Museveni” (…) “Museveni shot back; “You Baryayanga? You think you can be president? I don’t want to be president, I am only sacrificing myself for you.” (…) “Soon, he was back to the issue of the presidency. “Baryayanga, you think you can be president? You think you can manage my Generals? You? You?You think you can manage my Generals?! You think you can manage Tumukunde, Muhwezi… you? You?” Museveni asked Baryayanga” (…) “The MP remained silent for a while before he responded, “Your Excellence, with your help, I think I can manage. I am still a young and vibrant man, I really think I can manage.” In response, Museveni said, “Unless those Generals are dead, you can’t manage.” (…) ““I used to see [Godfrey Lukongwa] Binaisa posing around that he is a former president. What impact did he create? Then you see [Kizza] Besigye with walk to work…Besigye can’t be president for even three months,” Museveni said” (Kabuubi, 2018)

We can see that Baryayanga is just asking a fair question, that the President is losing his cool over. Like the paternal leader and eternal God of all, the only one that can manage it all is President Museveni. Mr. Sunday, Mr. The Only Man with a Vision. Couldn’t keep his cool and his temper. Surely, it is tiring to defend himself and always runs to the guns if people oppose him. It is like he thinks he is the only one who understand the NRM 27 Guns and the NRM Historicals and Stalwarts! It is insane, but that is how deluded he is at the moment. That he is the only one with the keys and no one else has the capacity or the strength to turn the door-knob.

Therefore, the President had again to back in history, to revisit the dead, because the ones who used to rule is all gone. He defeated them all and never gave anyone else a chance. Succession is poison to the blood-vessels of Museveni. It is like he thinks he himself will become an issue for a successor, he said it with comparing Godfrey Binaisa with fellow man Paulo Muwanga and Dr. Milton Obote, who all shared the throne during the year of 1980. The year and rigged General Election that brought Mr. Sunday to the Bush. Oooh those where the days. Well, he has to go there, to get legitimacy to still sit on the Throne.

Well, if Besigye cannot rule, who can expect you? What sort of rigged paradigm shifting focus of militarism are you implying Mr. Sunday? Why are you so special? There are nation of leaders and upcoming men, whose not Besigye, who can rule and can delegate people. I am sure they have more than enough skills to push the UPE to the next level and actually get proper use of UNRA and UMEME. Something you are not capable of Mr. President.

The issue is that you have created these Generals, but they will not stop following orders if someone else pays and comforts them. Unless, you give them reason to use the Crime Preventers as a militia and start war-lording against someone else who gets grip of power. Because that is the only thing you know, that is why Gen. Muhoozi, has been in the military and ran the Special Forces Command. To learn the tricks you needed in the 1980s. Oooh, you think we didn’t see this coming, did you?

We are not deluded Mr. President, you are and someone has to say it. I am sitting miles away with no fear. You cannot raid my living-room or touch my mind. But I can tell you, its long gone the time of your retirement. Besigye could run Uganda, Mbabazi could have run Uganda, even Otunnu or Ssemogerere could have been a possible men to become successors. But you have destroyed all of them and rigged yourself in.

I think there would be a learning curve and the need to find their way, they wouldn’t run it like Mr. Sunday, but they would be able to administer and to delegate the priorities needed to be Statesmen. Neither, of them got the ability to even try, so it is all just mere say, because we have no evidence. But we have the long history of mismanagement, patronage and rigging from Museveni. Therefore, it is foolish of him now to not try to sway people, that he has a plan for succession, but his EGO and his deluded mind is in his way. Peace.

Prof. Joe O. Onyango calls Mzee an ATM; the same day reports of doling out money to a SACCO and to the Buganda Caucus!

yoweri-museveni-ronald-kibuule

I been saying it too for a while… that the Presient Yoweri Kaguta Museveni spends money where the mouth is. That is for the ones loyal to him and the ones he wants loyal to him. So that hearing a Professor Joe Oloka Onyango from the Makerere University saying the same. Thank you Professor for describing the truth… surely that must not give him peace as he walks home.

Because the National Resistance Movement doesn’t like dissidents and pays to silence critics; President Museveni cannot enjoy being called an ATM, even if it is true. Mzee, gives money to anybody who is loyal or to the Elite. He is taking money from the Bank of Uganda and spending as he pleases and where he see fit without budget or allocations. Therefore we saw straight after the General Election needed addition funding in Trillions upon Trillions.

Here is two stories from one SACCO and the Buganda Caucus, one to pay-off opposition through a fiscal funding and the other to keep loyal MPs in Buganda Caucus.

Mzee gives money to a SACCO:

“The drama was captured during the launch of Muyoka Sacco last week where Mr Museveni handed members Shs100m to mobilise themselves into income generating activities” (…) “NRM members were challenging President Museveni’s action to hand money to people, majority of whom were recently drafted into NRM from the Opposition” (…) “Muyoka Sacco is composed of more than 3,000 members who were recruited by a former DP member Rose Kafeero ahead of the February 18 elections to consolidate NRM’s support in Kampala” (Wandera, 2016).

More Money from Mzee:

“Watchdog has been reliably informed that President Museveni through NRM chief whip Ruth Nankabirwa and Kampala Central MP Mohammed Nsereko, spent sh500 million on the event in order to determine who goes through” (…) “The president paid for the full board accommodation at the hotel. Every participant however received a million shillings in transport reimbursement and Sh100,000 for night entertainment. Ssenyonga, a first term MP, replaced Godfrey Kiwanda who was appointed Tourism state minister. Buganda Caucus is the largest regional caucus in Parliament, and if led well, it can offer a strong voice for regional issues in the House” (Watchdog, 2016).

nsereko-money

Museveni State House is a ATM:

“Prof Joe Oloka Onyango said every crisis in this country is being solved by way of brown envelopes, a scenario he described as being sad and far below the rule of law in the country” (…) “In early 1980s, when this country was under the leadership of Godfrey Binaisa Lukongwa, State House was like a market place. Today, State House has been converted into an ATM,” he said amid cheers” (Wesaka & Adengo, 2016).

Mzee, has been giving away to his men for a long while not caring about budgets and such. Therefore we have heard both Bank of Uganda and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED). Its reasons for the amounts of government debt and inflations that can come from this kind of behaviour and the rising prices on the goods; this is the effect of reckless spending without implemented plans or budgets. Therefore the funds are taken from wherever at amp speed just like an ATM and not with allocated budget or references as where it was supposed to be used. Peace.
