Opinion: The Ugandan Police is so embedded into the Politics; that it’s level is questionable; as IGP Kayihura decides and ushers political work: when he should focus on crime and not on Besigye!

Anti Riot Police 30.01.2016 Before FDC Campaign Kabale

The Ugandan Police have monitored and been a political engine for long but the recent days and months to prove to what extent. As the realization of how embedded in the ruling it is. There is not only the ways the Uganda Police Force is detaining Opposition and Monitoring Opposition leaders. That with the knowledge of the Democratic Party members, Forum for Democracy leader and supporters; the way the Police uses it’s time to cause havoc around Besigye every time he kicks his shoes on the outside of the compound of Kasangati, Wakiso.

We are at the point as I have realised something that is not only a Police State where the Police is embedded with the Political Framework and monitoring the Opposition. That is bad enough. It is nothing positive when you know that the Police is Preventative Arrest and dropping more charges on the Opposition leaders then there are Malaria Medicine at the Yumbe Referral Hospital. Not that says lots of the state of Yumbe Hospital, more about the state of Police who has the time to add charges on every movement from the several citizens who have a mind of not being parts of the National Resistance Movement, henceforth challenging the freedoms and liberty of these individuals deserve.

Well, the Police Force have taken the liberty to involve themselves directly in the Politics. As the Inspectorate General of the Police have taken decisions that he shouldn’t have. Not in an ordinary state of affairs, as his job should take criminals not decide political issues. The IGP Kayihura have taken the decisions to crash consultations meetings and stopping the opposition from having ordinary work and assemble in districts and towns around the country. Well, that is under framework of the Public Order Management Act. That is not what made me think today. It is because as the Councillors of Kampala was sent to the Executive or President Museveni, with the cover-up of the involvement of the Police in that shin-ding.

Kale Kayihura Letter to Amama 040915

“He [Kayihura] made telephone calls to some councilors who were having second thoughts about attending the meeting,” one of his aides told us” (Kiggundu & Lubwama, 2016). This proves his involvement in politics and using his networks of security organizations in Kampala together with talk to bring them to the State House. That is not the job of them, but in the regime these days it is…

What made me think was the knowledge of the existence of a Senior Super of Police Susan Kasingye Commissioner Electoral & Political. That the Uganda Police Force need a person to commission the Electoral and Political offenses and the admission of doing political work in the country as she must have a Commission who monitors and decisions of the Political Parties as she can’t be as useless as Hon. Byandala the Minister without Portfolio. Ms. Kasingye the daughter of Kayihura must have something to do, as she must be involved in the care of collecting information and spying on the Political Parties. If Norbert Mao thinks of drinking in Gulu or Padre; If Mbabazi thinks of filling gas on the only car he has in his driveway and so on.

But to have Directorate and Commission on Electoral and Political should boggle your mind and send the “Yes, Minister” squabble and crass reality as if a man throws the egg to the wall and think that it still be a whole egg. An egg is fragile and will break on the moment it hits the wall. That is something we knows as we know how weak the eggshell is before throwing it into the air.

As we still remembers how the public shunned the local councillor elections and the tiny numbers as the Electoral Commission was tallying the results. In midst of this there was waiting for the final call from IGP Kayihura to verify if Makerere Division of Kampala where the results was showing that Doreen Nyanjura was the winner, but the EC didn’t verify and accept the result before Kayihura had given his thumbs-up; as there was speculated that he tried to trade the position to somebody else and the deal went through. And if it is so, then the Political system is totally infiltrated by the Police Force.    

When you also knows that the Daughter of Kayihura is a SSP Kasingye and works with the Political Aspect of Policing then you can start to wonder what they are up-to and to what extent as the Police Force have already destroyed and inflicted their presence into the sphere of the opposition parties and their assembly. The other is the way the IGP Kayihura have all through the Pre-Election period and Campaigning either stifled the opposition or ushered the stage for the ruling party. That is evident through the stages, radio-closing, guarding the government buildings, anti-riot police following the campaign trails and detaining opposition members and electoral monitors right after polls. The Police involvement is embedded in the structure of the state. It is not the equation that they should be in, they should catch and secure that their no theft, killings and crimes done, not what Mbabazi or Besigye is up to as citizens of the Republic of Uganda.

Up and About – Besigye Speaks out on Next Plan (Youtube-Clip)

“FDC Announces Peaceful Demonstration” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

FDC 05.05.2016 Planned March

Police on Besigye (Youtube-Clip)

“Former presidential candidate Dr. Kiiza Besigye has ignored the sermons that were issued by the magistrates court to answer to charges of holding unlawful processions, disobeying police orders. Police spokesperson Fred enanga has now warned that the police will use its ion fist to force Besigye to court” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

The Calvary has yet again blocked Kasangati; The Police are dumbfounded about the whereabouts of Besigye!

Kasangati 09.04.2016 P4

Long live the Forum for Democratic Change! This here is the story that is nearly to good to be true. As the house have surveillance and had many more guards than the ordinary State House in Entebbe and Nakasero. It says the story of the level of quality of the Uganda Police. As their DPC Kasangati, James Kawalya cannot feel cool today.

That IGP Kale Kayihura cannot feel good, as he have had the control of the situation and must feel his spine shaking today. That must be the general feeling as his boss, the Don Museveni is in the mountains of Rwenzori shooting and hunting for accidental victims of the Post-Election attacks.

So the Police earlier today detained Ingrid Turinawe the FDC Mobiliser and also the Dr. Kizza Besigye car from Kasangati, as he was not in the car towards the celebration at Nakivubo Settlement Primary School, where he was to attend and be the special guest with Erias Lukwago.

They thought they caught him and got him good. Besigye’s car has yet again towed-in by the authorities to the Kasangati Police Station or luckily the Naggalama Police Station in Mukono.  That is because they cannot help themselves.

Kasangati 09.04.2016

One newly elected FDC MP Francis Mwijuke had this story to tell:

“I drove from Dr. Kizza Besigyes House this morning on my way to town. I was in Dr. Besigyes car UAN 661V. I was being followed by Ingrid Turinawe in a Prado UAW 616W. When I joined the Nangabo rd, about 7 police vehicle broked the road and surrounded. I kept in the vehicle for about ten minutes. Later the police commander moved to me and I brought the car screens down. They found that it was me traveling in Dr. Besigyes car and Kato the driver. They then searched every where in the vehicle including under the seats. After realizing that he was not anywhere, they opened for me after like 20 minutes and I continued to town. I then had the commander pronouncing, he is in the other vehicle. Ingrid didn’t open for them for 30 minutes. When she finally opened for them and they found Dr. Besigye not in that vehicle they towed it with Ingrid in and took it to Kasangati police station due to the embarrassment”.

URN reports this:

“It remains unclear how and when Besigye left the house, but a source close to the former presidential candidate told URN that Besigye left the home shortly before the police deployment. Police is reported to have deployed at the home at 8am to prevent Dr Kizza Besigye from leaving the home” (URN, 2016).

If the Police Force is tooling up and really cutting of the roads, detaining the FDC Officials trying to get the man to planned event in Kampala; than he can’t really be free and the Police Force is again showing how much they are lying to the world. This here is a proof of the evidence of the effects of the Police State and how the affairs in Uganda are. There are even reports of Police Force going during a funeral in the country and throwing tear-gas! Think about that for a hot-minute, wait a hot-second, that is just tragic itself that the Police enters a mourning period for family and loved ones, but also coming in throwing tear-gas!

Nakivubo PS 09.04.2016

This here is while the Police searching for the FDC Presidential Candidate of Dr. Kizza Besigye and not knowning his wearabouts. It’s golden, its wonderful and proving that they need more professional guards to keep him monitored. Because this guys are wicked and hungry, not men who knows their business!

This is just remarkable that he gets out of his home, which been sieged since mid-February with guards, vans and mambas besieging his gate and area. Therefore the classic story of getting away from this is just priceless. UPF can be proud of the hard work and dedication, time to write the Don and apology and hope for forgiveness for you craft. Peace.

More people demonstrate in Kampala City Center where they chain themselves!

Chain Themselves 02.04.2016

As the IGP Kayihura and James Kawalya the DPC Kasangati who does not release the House Arrested Opposition leader Dr. Kizza Besigye; who is still under the same treatment as it has been since mid-February.

That is the reason why men is chaining themselves as a message to the government that they have put their leader in chains as his home becoming a prison in Kasangati. The IGP Kale Kayihura can play the international media, but he cannot play the local community and the Political Party who knows the situation with their leader. This is Youth on their own addressing it peacefully and showing disgust, most importantly disregard for the Authorities who detain and arrested their leader without a charge for over 40 days and they feel wronged. This can’t be seen any longer as one proud man who stood against the Police and the Government. Now there more people and they are showing their stance with silent protest against it. Not hurting anybody, except the pride of the Government as this is open demonstration is showing it all. Peace.

Police still deployed at Besigye’s home despite despite order to withdraw (Youtube-Clip)

“in spite of Gen. Kale Kayihura’s directive, the police are still deployed at Dr. Kizza Be-sigye’s home. Kasangati DPC James Kawalya said he was yet to receive an official or-der to withdraw. Besigye’s lawyer David Mpanga said they will continue to pursue the case requesting the police to leave his client’s home” (NTV Uganda, 2016).

Besigye reacts to Police Withdrawal from His Home (Youtube-Clip)

Former FDC presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye has reacted to Gen Kale Kayihura’s decision to remove the police from his home saying he is not excited at all with police decision. The FDC leader insists police was at his home illegally and that he finds no reason to celebrate their withdrawal. NBS Richard Olwenyi was with Kiiza Besigye at his Kasangati home at the time the police chief Kale Kaihura made the pronouncement. The news of his freedom reached him at around midday when he was meeting a delegation of interparty youth league who had paid him a visit to express their sympathy with the four times presidential candidate who has been under house arrest for 40 days. In the middle of the meeting, besigye’s cell phone rang, he picked and was informed about the directive to have him freed but he showed not excitement and instead quarreled. Many would think this was good news but the suggestion from his face, depicted he received news that spoiled his day. The continued detention of Besigye according to government was the fear the FDC leader was plotting to mobilize his supporters to engage in violent protest just after the just concluded elections to over throw the government of Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Besigye wondered why the police chief Kaiyhura now says he has withdrawn forces from his residence yet he has been denying he was under house arrest” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

Joseph Elton Mabarizi Statement on the coming ruling from Supreme Court on the Presidential Election (30.03.2016)

Mabirizi Debate16

Friends, I write this at 6.30am March 31, 2016, the day the Supreme Court is expected to announce its decision on the Amama Petition.

As categorically stated before, during my campaign and after the elections, I have little confidence in the possibility of a political problem being solved through questionable legal means. The Independent Coalition, TIC which fronted me as Presidential Candidate, ruled out going to court once the election is/was rigged.

The election was rigged. We all know it. Even Mr. Museveni knows it very well. That’s why he must keep the winner under house arrest.

As our way of setting the record straight, let me on behalf of The Independent Coalition officially congratulate Col (rtd) Dr. Kizza Besigye on being elected President of Uganda.

Whatever the Supreme Court says is its business. The people who are more supreme than the supreme court decided to end Mr. Museveni’s 30 year corrupt rule on Feb 18 2016, and they did.

I appeal to our colleagues in FDC to do more than they have done so far, to lead the struggle to secure the victory of the FDC flag bearer.

If they don’t show real leadership at this stage, then another leadership will be forced to do so, and they should not blame us for claiming their victory, just like Museveni (who had miserably lost the election) claimed Dr. Semogerere’s victory in 1980.

The Independent Coalition, TIC and I shall not legitimise electoral fraud for any reason.

For God and my Country.

Hon. Jim Muwezi talks about justifying the house-arrest of Besigye; that personal freedom loses towards a state’s stability; I differ on those opinions; while he has totally forgotten the invitations from … to the Election Observers Mission.

Jim Muhwezi

When you’re losing a bar-fight and thinking that another beer, will give you extra strength and power to sufficiently hit the high and almighty bastard; that is the reasoning tactics of the Minster Jim Muhwezi today, the minister of Information and National Guidance!

Today Hon. Jim Muhwezi talked out on the FDC on the Breakfast Show on the NTV. Here is what he uttered today!  

 “When Kizza Besigye moves, he is followed by people, some of whom are potential criminals who want to loot. Police has a duty to stop that” (…)”“He [Besigye] is not under arrest. He is being regulated. He is free. Didn’t he go to church? Kizza Besigye is being treated as a security threat. Police can stop you from committing a crime. Uganda Police acts on information they get” (…)”Besigye’s ‘detention’ means government maintains responsibility of keeping law and order because elections shouldn’t turn Uganda anarchical so that is why security takes precedence over personal freedom always” (…)”“Besigye’s ‘detention’ means government maintains responsibility of keeping law and order because elections shouldn’t turn Uganda anarchical so that is why security takes precedence over personal freedom always” (…)”I don’t know the importance of this. They are diverting people’s attention from work. I find it strange that FDC is asking people to stay home. Very few people are following this. They are trying to defy nature and honest If Kizza Besigye wanted to go to court, we would have gone to court. Amama Mbabazi went to court without going to court” (Muneza, 2016).

Kizza Besigye 22.02.2016

Well, this here is not easy to subtle and kindly as he claims ordinary Ugandans are criminals for being supporters of Dr. Kizza Besigye, since the crowds and showing up at every town was big and many of the locals. Hon. Muhwezi follows the IGP Kayihura guideline, which Besigye is not under arrest: claiming the few hours going to All-Saints is the proof. I am sorry Hon. Muhwezi you’re soon getting three roadblocks to your home, getting a visiting book to sign in your entire guest, having police-officers outside your home for 40 days and not calling it a house-arrest. Then I and you can have an honest conversation. Even though the IGP Kayihura lies and you do as well, does not make it a truth!

Later you say the personal freedoms cannot be granted if it is fear of security and anarchical actions. The logic is flawed as your master and you’re Executive; your boss and the man you admire with all of your being Mr. Muhwezi. Hon. Muhwezi is defending a Preventative Arrest without any evidence that it has made an impact or given the country more secure. Law and Order means detaining people without having charges in sake of security, for me it sounds as making people criminal before they have even done a crime Hon. Muhwezi; is that the Information and National Guidance you will be remembered for?

Rukungiri 10.03.2016

Hon. Muhwezi it is ironic and fun to me how the NRM officials and NRM MPs and NRM Spokesmen have issues with the FDC Boycott. Why it’s ironic? If you are the grand-slam winners of the elections and have the majority then the boycott would not matter and wouldn’t be on your lips, right? Since it is, then it is hurting society and the general moral as it is way of peacefully reacting to the thieving of the election and acts of violence from the Security Forces and Police Force for the general public.

Enage 02.03.2016

Then the last point on the Petition squabble, I did address this also with the CP Fred Enaga right after. It is special how the NRM people and Uganda Police sound like they have programmed to address and reasoning the same. Must be the 50 shades of ballot-stealing they are learning at Kyankwanzi retreat. It is hard to discuss this with rational sense that Dr. Kizza Besigye could go to court, he was under house-arrest, his fellow Party-Officials was not allowed to meet, the ones with DR Forms from the Polling Stations met at Gun-Point from the Police and also detained by the same Police; also the besieged FDC headquarter of Najjankumbi and twice raided since the Election Day. Therefore the assessment of easily walking with evidence and precedence to the Supreme Court is flawed one. If the NRM party had the aggravated assaults from the Police Force against their operations then their Executive would have gone back to his guns and taken the “Freedom, Liberty and Justice” for himself, but you know that right, Hon. Muhwezi?

On International Actors during the Elections:

“Uganda’s internal matters” (…)”observers are not in our constitution and we don’t know why they were here” (Gorilla Express, 2016).

Well, you’re a minister of information, but it is the country who get request and takes the Observers Mission sometimes as a way of creating credibility for the election or securing funding for the government as the precedence of the reign of the rule of power is by the ballot box and an election. Just as the Commonwealth accepted the rigged the election of 1980 was to get a positive government that the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom investment could trust, therefore the Election Observers from Commonwealth in the 1980s was there to give credibility to the Obote II Government. You who are man who has been in government for so long should know this?

Your right an election is an internal matter! But that does not make them righteous to do them wrongly, the reason is to respect the ballot and the wishes of the citizens. That is an internal matter and matter of government, to have the representatives and the leaders the people decided to vote for and get in power. Not for the one handpicked by the Electoral Commission or the NRM-O. So the internal matter can be questioned by the people following and outsiders as we can see that the Government does not respect the internal matter of respecting your population and the citizens in general. Complete disregard for the will of the people when the rigged election has appeared and the announcement takes away the will and power of the ballot.

Mou EOM GoU 2015

Wasn’t that why President Museveni had MoU on the Election Observation Mission in December 2015! But that is forgotten in your mind Hon. Muhwezi? The EAC Election Observers Mission came on invitation from the Electoral Commission, which is also forgotten? The Commonwealth Election Observation Mission happens after an invitation directly from the Government of Uganda, so certainly the GoU and the Electoral Commission; they have asked them to come! That is why they were there and observed the elections, apparently. But as a NRM Ministry of Information and National Guidance, your work is to make people forget certain facts to fit into the vision of the only man with a vision, isn’t that right Hon. Muhwezi?

I did the other destroy the words of Hon. Opondo, but you Hon. Muhwezi was much easier and with more delight. Hope you get to read these words and respect them as a advisory, because it could have been less humble and been more disgraceful as you called the men and woman who follow Besigye criminals, which is a low-point and a common disregard to common sense; why? Because the men majority of the men and woman following Besigye is citizens, tax-payers and the “average” Ugandan! Peace.

P.S:

Well, Hon. Muhwezi you’re speaking so biased I am sorry for you. There is not easy to take you seriously. That is because when I sent a question to mail the NRM Party Online Page, I was sent directly to your Ministry of Information and National Guidance; promised an answer within 24 hours in mid-February, and by today; still no answer on a single question.
