Another day, another day of violating human rights of movement for everybody who is not Mzee; CP Enaga argues for continuing a “house-arrest” even if court rules against it!

Kasangati 22.03.2016 P2

Today again, after the Kasangati Magistrate Court decided over night to send the court petition to Criminal Division Kampala North. This here is another detail into the compiling case of criminal activity against the Presidential Candidate and the opposition leader of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC). That has been over the edge and continuing disregard for justice for anybody else than Mzee and his elite click in the NRM. Just read his day’s quote!

Today’s message for CP Enaga:

“Even after court ruling, we’ll pull a few metres away from Besigye’s home, but we’ll not leave completely” (…)”Police stated they want Dr. Besigye to disown the defiance message he has been preaching before and after elections” (Issa, 2016).

This here proves the disregard for justice and lawfulness that are in the country as the Police and Army can do as they please and use any kind of excuses to not care for civility or justice for fellow countrymen. Even if the courts and by understanding of law justifies them to leave the home of Dr. Kizza Besigye, they will still monitor him and keep him under siege as he felon.

I find it ironic that they still have issues with the message of defying the government and state, while they are arresting the people’s president and the people who do not need security organizations to keep the things in order. The message he sends is conflicting as his breadwinner is under the flag of NRM, which is a Resistance Movement. Resistance is a stronger an profound stronger word in the sense; then the trouble that the Police Force has with the defying aspect and the Defiance. So they better get their minds right, or even their arguments straight. Because it is non-sense at this point; since the Police fear Kizza Besigye, for his legitimacy as leader compared to their breadwinner Mzee who in the shadows orders the arrangements together with the IGP Kayihura who follows orders from the top like a blind dog.

They will continue with road-blocks and secure the premises as he is kept on short leach and proves the little value as a security outfit the Police Force has, as they have to use militarized activities towards civilians. Peace.

Kasangati Court has a “Volunteer-day” and stalls the verdict for Dr. Kizza Besigye House-Arrest!

Daudi Mpaka Kasangati Court 18.03.2016

Kasangati Magistrate Court yesterday Ajured the case, today they put a Pro Bono day. That means that the officials say they work for free this, in the UK a Pro Bono is a volunteer act for the public good. From Wikipedia: “A judge may occasionally determine that the loser should compensate a winning pro bono counsel”. That is a compensation of a losing case so that they get counsel, but the court of Kasangati called it Pro Bono Day, meaning that they don’t need to work the case, but giving the lawyers of FDC and Dr. Kizza Besigye compensation as Pro Bono, for the common good. Though it is literally one thing, stalling of time…

As the Legal-Dictonary.theFreeDictonary states:

pro bono: adj. short for pro bono publico, Latin “for the public good,” legal work performed by lawyers without pay to help people with legal problems and limited or no funds, or provide legal assistance to organizations involved in social causes such as the environmental, consumers, minorities, youth, battered women and education organizations and charities”.

So if the Kasangati court would do the public some good, they woudn’t do what they did today, with stalling the case another day. Here is from the official!

From the FDC:

“Disappointing..that officers of court should use technicalities to perpetuate abuse of individual’s rights. The police chief isn’t untouchable, can be sued. “ -Mr. Daudi Mpanga, Barrister for Dr. Besigye. Dr. Besigye’s case adjourned until Monday because it’s pro bono day”.

Kasangati 17.03.2016

From Erias Lukwago today:

“With the Court Of Appeal Justice, Remmy Kasule and Madam Ruth Ssebatindira at the Uganda Law Society probono day at the Railway Grounds this morning. It’s a day where members of the legal profession offer free legal counsel to the indegents and renew our commitment to uphold the values of eqity and social justice”.

So Yesterday the Kasangati Court said the government needed more time, today they have only volunteers and can’t address the case, a Pro Bono litteraly means, but the government has enough resources to keep the Police and Military Police around his house, his area and roadblocks from Kampala as we speak, and get everybody interviewed, filmed and recorded before entering the gates of Kasangati, as the House Arrest continues. That is acceptable in the state of Uganda, as President Museveni continues to linger in power and keeping innocent men in jail and house-arrest without charges or reason for the arrest. A continuation that has been steady since before Election Day on the 18th of February 2016 and seem to go on until the swearing-in at this point.

That being said as a reminder of the lawfulness of the Kasangati Court as they work with orders from above, not from following the law for preventative arrests or anything else, that specifies time for it and release of the prisoner, as they have never taken away that Colonial law as the Government of Uganda has the need for it, it seems. Peace.
