Opinion: The Ghosts Continue to Haunt the YLP!

The Youth Livelihood Programme (YLP) by every minute going, seems like a forged project and fake government projects. In ways to secure funding for other things for other Public Officials, why do I say that? Because the YLP have been given a red-flag before. The YLP should be known for its ghosts and its forged documents.

The ones running it should be questioned, as the YLP is under the Office of the Prime Minister. Therefore, the known OPM who has misused funds, which is not breaking news, but more of the same. While it was revealed there was ghosts in the YLP. This has been known for a while. The was a similar report made in 2017, as it was in 2019. That is why I will show them. To prove the similarities and lack of change.

Just take a look.

Article from 2017:

A recent government investigation has unearthed gross corruption, ghost groups, illegal fees charged for application forms and poor monitoring of the programme countrywide. The same evil has crept into the newly established Women Livelihood Programme started in 2015. The new findings back up the 2016 auditor general’s report, which found the Youth Livelihood Programme did not have a proper accounting framework. The report also found that recovery of funds was so low and some beneficiaries had vanished in at least 35 districts, including Masaka, Rakai, Wakiso, Kalangala and Kalungu. According to the ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development, at least Shs 84.55 billion has so far been disbursed in loans to over 144,235 individuals affiliated to 11,503 youth groups countrywide, but only Shs 6.7 billion had been recovered by the end of January 2017” (Arua District Local Government – ‘PROBE FINDS ROT IN YOUTH LIVELIHOOD PROGRAMME’ 22.07.2017).

URN reported on the 4th January 2019:Among the queries raised by the auditor general John Muwanga in the reports, is the existence ghost beneficiaries under the Youth Livelihood Programme (YLP) – noting that about 527 million of the fund money is non-traceable. The money was allegedly spent on ghost groups in 30 districts randomly sampled during the audit period” (URN – ‘MPs grill Bigirimana over youth fund ghost beneficiaries’ 04.01.2019).

Before, I settle down on the matter, there was also a communique from the National Resistance Movement Youth League letter of the 14th October 2016, when the Minister of State for Youth and Children Affair Hon. Nakiwala Kyingi, that all Youth Chairman should be connected with Local Technocrats, where they decide that NRM-YL had to use the YLP system to get funds. This was decided in 2016. Therefore, since then, the NRM-YL and others have to make YLP Projects to get funding and loans.

As we knows that, at the same time-frame of the Auditor General report claims funds gone mission in various of districts, also ghost projects and others. Proving this is deliberate actions done by people, who are eating of the YLP. They are using this designated funds to secure wealth or spend on whatever, without any proof.

This is clearly evident of corrupt behaviour and misuse of government funds. That is not new in the Republic either. The YLP is following a long line of short-cons in the government. In 2017, there was talk of vanishing funds in 30 districts, in 2019, there is talk of 35 districts. Certainly, this is managed and mismanaged deliberatly by the Public Officials. Peace.

OPM Refugee Scandal: Reloaded!

You would think that the Office of the Prime Minister, who is in-charge of the Refugees in Uganda, would trade the waters carefully, after the last year scandal of thousands upon thousands of ghost refugees. Which the OPM and the state was cashing in on. No, no, no, they are having yet another scheme, as the government are planning to misuse the refugee crisis in the neighbour countries to their advantage. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) have no trouble doing so.

The Prime Minister Dr. Rugunda Ruhakana has clearly not lost the touch of deception or lying to the International Community for a buck. Here is yet another scheme made up to make the numbers sky-rocket!

More than 1000 Ugandans living in areas neighbouring Kyangwali refugee settlement were forced to attain refugee status in order to retain ‘ownership’ of their land. The scheme was reportedly crafted by Charles Bafaki, the principal resettlement officer in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), Jolly Kebirungi, the camp commandant Kyangwali refugee settlement area, in the newly created Kikuube district and Lutaaya Vianney from ministry of Lands” (URN – ‘OPM forced Ugandans to register as refugees in Kyangwali’ 02.01.2019, link:https://observer.ug/news/headlines/59562-opm-officials-forced-ugandans-to-register-as-refugees-in-kyangwali).

With this in mind, the government are putting lives in jeopardy, making the citizens play as refugees, and not being citizens themselves. Supposed to seek refugee in a camp instead of living their ordinary life. This in a way to get higher numbers of refugees and more need of aid to take care of them. If this isn’t misusing resources and also reckless behaviour against own citizens. Nothing is. This is what Steady Progress means in the NRM land.

The OPM are already known for inflating numbers, but now they cheating also by making Ugandan citizens into refugees. That is really ensuring the UNHCR and all agencies for fools. As the GoU and OPM have no trouble risking their own citizens as pawns in a scheme to secure funding. While, also using this scheme to scare locals of losing their land, if they didn’t play along. That is how far they take it.

No mercy, no problems ensuring suffering for people, as long as the OPM secures more funds to itself. Peace.

AG Byaruhanga tries to make a bribe into a donation: Per President Order!

Do not act as if you had ten thousand years to throw away. Death stands at your elbow. Be good for something while you live and it is in your power.”Marcus Aurelius

Today, Attorney General William Byaruhanga delivered his Interim Report on the indictment and the criminal charges of Patrick Ho in connection with Minister of Foreign Affairs Sam Kuteesa and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. This has been known now and if these was just mere charges, than the Chinese National wouldn’t get charged and sentenced in a United States Court.

This is because the Chinese National offered a bribe of 500,000 USD each for a possible Oil Deal for a Chinese Company in Uganda. Therefore, the Chinese National made it possible for the high-ranking officials in the Ugandan government to solicit half-a-million United States Dollars for it. That is why we are here today. This was signed off as a Campaign contribution, but by that time, the President had already been re-elected in 2016. We know this, but has to say all this before I quote the Interim Report. What is special about the case too, is that the government will claim the Foundation owned by Kuteesa, but has anyone seen it outside of a paper and a registered entity outside of Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB), which it was in 2015. That is why today is special, because a ghost entity got good money for a possible business transaction… that would favorable for the repentance, which happens to the Minister and President.

What is also important to state, which is already white-washed in the interim report, is the delivery of the bribe. That went through customs, which was mailed between the Chinese National and the Minister. Who both combined their efforts to send the money and deliver it in cash, in secrecy, as it was intended to a favorable transaction. Not something that was supposed to end up in Court Documents in the United States and incriminate one, while implicating the high-ranking officials in Uganda.

With that in mind.

The quote:

The Foundation received a sum of US$ 499,993 on 9’h May 2016 from a Hong Kong-based NGO known as China Energy Fund Committee. The money was a donation to the Food Security and Energy Sustainability Foundation which Hon. Kutes a and his wife started as a vehicle for enabling Hon. Kutesa to continue to champion some of the causes he had spearheaded during his tenure as the President of the General Assembly of the United Nations with respect to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals”.

While that quote is special and says a lot, it does trying to clear the implicated Minister in the Corruption Scandal that has rocked the man. That the Auditor General did this on direct order from the President. This was to ensure the President and his ally Kuteesa got off the hook. That is why the Foundation and the “donation” we’re the Chinese National had reasons to give there. Like we are naive.

The Foundation is just based on paper. There are no proof of their work or whatever their supposed to do. Certainly, they are servicing some special and unique unicorns, sorry, ghosts. Because, this money came by plane from the United States to Entebbe International Airport, as it entered the Customs as warned to the parties involved.

So, I have a hard time believing the AG in this matter, as he is trying to figure out a way to clear he Minister of his implication, per order as a loyal subject of the President. Who also got money in the transaction done by the Chinese National. They all know this.

Time for the AG get his act together, unless he is a blind soldier for the President. Peace.

Joint Local Statement on the Uganda refugees’ response (14.12.2018)

Opinion: If this isn’t your war Bosco, maybe you should just retire?

“Why arrest people for being Idle and disorderly, those are colonial tendencies, how do you arrest someone in his country that he is idle and disorderly?”Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (10.12.2018).

Today, was the day of yet another into the bunch of Anti Corruption and Financial Monitoring Authorities within the Republic. This time its a fixed Unit at the State House. That is why it is ironic, that Mr. President doesn’t say it is his fight. That his fight was in the 1980s and not now. That his done with fighting, but are just watching it all. That is not true, as he is usually implicated in it all. If you look thought the scandals, he is either involved or allowing the culprits to get away. That is just the way it is.

That is why I have no faith in a new Unit in a Republic with the IGG, OAG, PPDA, FIA, UPF, The Judiciary and new State House Anti Corruption Unit with a telephone number to call. All of these bodies are supposed to stop it and expose the graft, expose the corruption, however, that is not the wish of the President. Because in the end, that would show his sins. Sins the President is not supposed to have, but does have. We know this and not just mere hearsay. Since there been plenty of scandals since he started his reign in 1986. But hey, will not go into that, because that is doctorate or a book in itself. As the National Resistance Movement (NRM) have been implicated and created it time and time again. There is just new Government Organizations and new names, but the similar scheme, different company tender or another government facility where the culprits close to the President or even himself was eating.

Look:

My war was that of guns and I fought and finished it in Luweero. This war on thieves is yours” (…) “Thieves are there where you are. You see them” (…) “The NAADS people who steal government money; doctors who steal medicine, police officers that solicit bribes, you see all of them. There isn’t any evil that happens down there that you know nothing about” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Corruption is not my war; I fought and Finished Mine in the Bush – Museveni’ 10.12.2018 link: https://chimpreports.com/corruption-is-not-my-war-i-fought-and-finished-mine-in-the-bush-museveni/).

With all of this, Museveni, knows perfectly well. That is why he says stuff like this. Acts the way he does. He is cleaning his hands, while he knows the dirt of his sins will not go off. As he never plans to confess or come clean. That means he will humble himself and show the world his con. The President has lived on the Long-Con.

Therefore, Museveni saying this isn’t his war. Is saying it is not for him to clean up his mess. Which is pretty insulting to all intelligence. As he is the Executive, he is the President and the Government itself. The President could have shown character and been bold, instead he is cleaning his hands or trying to.

The President is trying to fool the public, but ends up fooling himself. As he looks like a schmuck. That is evident with his words combined with years of action. He can blindfold the Movement people and the ones imprinted with his propaganda, but the reality is different.

Bosco can speak hard, but if he cared, he wouldn’t have let all of these activities happening around him or the cronies. All of which is known, but he is thinking the rouse works. However, it doesn’t because people knows it all so perfectly well. That is why people are mocking and playing around with the new Unit. No one believes it.

The President can play around and toy around like King. However, he is still a fool, saying this isn’t his war. Not so strange, when he is the General ordering everyone around and doesn’t want jump on the sword. The President doesn’t want to be credited or charged for the own crimes, but wants fool the rest of world. Even when he has so many authorities to do the job. They cannot do it, because you order them around. We know it, but you will not say it. I have to say it: “You don’t have the heart”.

Secondly, if this isn’t your war, you should retire. As they have to clean up from your mess. Your issues and the chaotic mess you have created. Peace.

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine Statement on the new State House – Anti Corruption Unit (10.12.2018)

So today President Museveni has asked Ugandans to listen to him as he announces new measures against corruption. What a joke! After 32 years of empty promises, he is promising yet again!

How can we depend on the man who created the mess to clean it up?

How can a man who has created and presided over one of the worst corrupt systems talk about fighting corruption? How can a man, who goes around bribing citizens with sacks of public funds purport to fight corruption? How can a man, who was only last week linked to receiving a bribe of $500,000 in a United States federal court, say anything about fighting corruption? What can a man who has established, nurtured and supported political and economic corruption talk about combating corruption? A man who bribes MPs to pass decadent laws? A man who only two weeks ago admitted while in Kenya, that he bribes Ugandans, so as not to lose votes? A man who treats our nation’s treasury as if it’s his own purse? A man who treats Uganda’s natural resources as his own?

It is because of that corrupt system that hospitals have no drugs. That schools are rotting. That the levels of unemployment are sickening. That we have no public transport. That our infrastructural projects are inflated, costing many more times than they do in other countries, and yet we end up with shoddy works. That our nation suffers and bleeds.

If corruption in Uganda is a baby, President Museveni is its midwife. If it is a football game, he is a striker. If it is a song, he is the producer. If it is a building, he is the chief architect. And yes, if it is a plant, he is that fertile soil that has enabled it grow, blossom and flourish! He has appointed, reappointed, and elevated the corrupt and most compromised people in public office, and protected them.

Mr. President, you have no moral authority to say anything about fighting corruption. You are not just part of the problem- you are the biggest stumbling block in any effort to rid this country of corruption, patronage and abuse of public funds.
