Now that it’s official and the voting tomorrow is in session. The news that Chief Whip Thomas Tayebwa is the anointed Deputy Speaker to take the place of the current Deputy Anita Annet Among. We know the drill here and the most likely result tomorrow is that both of these gets the promotions in Parliament.
So in advance, congratulations and hope you can resurrect your legacies. However, in the grand scheme of things of things. I doubt it… and these two cadres are the token loyalists and egocentric puppets, which are the sort of fishermen that the President has prayed for entering his party all his life. These sort of small-time schemers and elite, which is easily corrupted and tricked into thinking they are doing their own gains, but initially just serving the purpose of the State House.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni must be so happy. That his getting the partisan people of Tayebwa and Among to these roles is just a blessing for the old man. He gets the epitome of hacks and insufferable people to represent his causes in the Parliament. These will wait for the whistle and ensure the NRM is at the heart of things.
Tayebwa has proven this all on his own. That he says just censoring Muhwezi was a target against all of the members of the Movement. When he could say that as a Chief Whip and staunchly defend the merits and questionable act of the Minister. We know that he has the ability and heart to strike even harder as the Deputy. He will follow the foot-steps of Among and cause even more damage without proper procedure or protocol. Just to throw the opposition into a tail-spin and escalate even more tension between the parties.
Among already proven that with her handling of the Zaake case and removal of title as Commissioner. Therefore, we know how she plays and used the office as Deputy. Now that she’s the boss and the Speaker. She can be even more ruthless and insincere. I don’t expect her to change or suddenly become a person of integrity or honesty. As that ship has sailed and she has proven there is one standard for NRM and another for the rest. That’s just how things goes and now the Parliament has to follow these sets of guidance and rules. If not… she can use the same argument again to revoke or censor someone.
When we know all this and this is the outcome of the death of Oulanyah. It is clear that the cadres and the well-grounded MPs within NRM is becoming extinct. When this is the best they have to offer and who they are endorsing to such roles. Theses people should be trusted and be people who will follow the words of the procedure and the law. However, these are so partisan and so selective in their reasoning. That I doubt they will ever do so.
These people will bargain and ensure the NRM and the President decrees are followed. Without any oversight or accountability. I expect the 11th Parliament to be so partisan, that the Leader of Parliament will often boycott or not participate. Neither will many of the Opposition MPs. Who don’t see grounds or values in the Plenary Sessions. As they are muffled and not taken into consideration. The majority and the NRM has a head who will silence and brutally engage with them. Therefore, things are not getting, but instead worse…
These two running the show. It will be a circus and a partisan at that. There will be no middle-ground or sort of impressionable scene. The ones that is chosen has already proven that by their actions and words. The titles and ranks might change, but we know these two bleeds yellow. Therefore, the sights on the Parliament will be so too. These will not account or care, because these has only interest of the Movement and nothing else.
That’s why there should be other types of cadres and MPs elected to these roles. However, the NRM CEC and the likes doesn’t even shield the need to totally suffocate the opposition. Peace.
“But your ethnic leader, you who were demonstrating, was transported in a presidential jet on public funds he was not entitled. You did not demonstrate. Is it because Oulanyah is an Acholi? Is it because Oulanyah does not speak your language? Only a wicked person, can fight a person fighting for his life. Only a super wicked person can fight the dead. Actually for us it is an abomination which has no named” – Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny Dollo (23.03.2022).
It seems to always be fitting to target and speak of ill of the “Central Region” or Buganda. These sentiments are clearly in the back-head of many people. As they are speaking with a tone and manner, which doesn’t seem fitting.
It is now done by the Court Justice Dollo… who can easily go after the Kabaka and the Baganda Kingdom. As he took an KLM flight to Germany for treatment. While he forgets that the state paid for the special flight of Oulanyah to Seattle. Again, the hospitalization abroad isn’t the issue, but the tribe. That is tragic… as in both instances… the lacking health care and medical facilities to treat this people are worrying. When VIPs has to go abroad to get help and the expenses are on the state. Alas, CJ Dollo isn’t smart here, but playing along tribal lines.
What is striking is how easily the loyal cadres and people in the inner-circle of power can use tribalism. When the President is often quoted to speak up against preaching sectarianism. However, the first moment when the iron get hot. The people come out of the woodwork and does just that.
CJ Dollo is no exception to the rule, as his just doing this in regard to the Muganda and their cultural leader. If this had been towards the Bunyoro or the Busoga it would have been wrong. Heck, no one should do this to the Langi or the Acholi either. It just shows how things are backwards, instead of moving forward.
What his saying is lingering on hate speech and should be condemned. This is coming after the Acholi and Greater North MPs wanted to “ring-fence” the position in Parliament. However, we know that is not happening and the Deputy is getting a promotion. That shows the National Resistance Movement wasn’t following the pleas and the petitions to follow ethnic lines for a role in government.
Nevertheless, we know the NRM has a problem with this and not because Among is from the East. No, the NRM has a problem that they have favoured Westerner and Ankoli for a long time. They have a click and a power-base, which has been steady since the bush-war. Therefore, the ethnic and tribal accusations can easily be pinned on the NRM. That is a reaction to the NRA historicals and the manner of which the President has governed.
So, CJ Dollo is just going after the Baganda and the Muganda. A kingdom and a region, which has dared to vote against the NRM and pick opposition leaders. That is just showing how staged this is. The opposition run demonstrations wasn’t directly at Oulanyah in Seattle, but a reaction to the medical tourism and wastage of government spending. This was the reason and Oulanyah was just the latest high ranking official to do so. It wasn’t long ago since former minister Lokodo was abroad for treatment before his death too. Therefore, this is a lingering problem and not an Acholi or anything else problem. It is a system default which is bad for the whole society. Since the hospitals and the health centres cannot cater and deliver the needed health care treatment in the Republic.
However, this sort of speech does nobody any good and the CJ should be better. Nevertheless, the death and demise of Oulanyah exposed his true character, I suppose. Peace.
“Rt. Hon Anita Among has been endorsed as Speaker of parliament by NRM CEC, NRM Secretary General Richard Todwong has confirmed” (94.3 QFM LIRA, 23.03.2022).
The news are now out of the bag. The waiting game is over and the finalization of what to come is here. The current Deputy Speaker Anita Among is getting the nomination and getting vouched by the National Resistance Movement – Central Executive Committee (NRM-CEC) that was anticipated and it’s not shocking.
Though now the NRM MPs from the Greater North in Lango, Acholi and West Nile have to either stand by their words or bow to the command of the NRM CEC. Because, the NRM CEC decisions tends to be final. Just like the direction and decisions made at the NRM Caucus at the State House. These are the end-game and how things are resolved. Where the mater is up for the high above and his final word settle the score.
In this round, it’s the Deputy becoming the Speaker. Meaning there will possibly be a double election. As if she wins the race as a speaker, which she is bound too. Among has the majority of MPs behind her and there is now way the numbers game change in any shape or form to help any opposition to counter it. Therefore, the decision and endorsement is the end.
This means that the 12 other was dismissed, even as one Minister had already revoked her candidacy and with doing so… only making it 12 candidates instead of the initial 13 reported. However, her candidacy was a long-shot and it was wise just to back-out anyway.
We will see the hurt and the pain in concern to the Acholi and the North, which wanted to ring-fence this position. They wanted this office to reflect the powerhouse of the North. That is how they have spoken since Jacob Oulanyah passed away. Therefore, the NRM CEC and the President didn’t want to honour that and instead picked the most loyal cadre, which is Among.
The ones thinking this is good choice. Well, they can look into the case of Zaake and how his been treated by the Deputy Speaker. Knowingly that is how she operates as the Deputy and would most likely be more fierce as the Speaker. The 11th Parliament will be a dungeon of partisanship for the NRM and there will be no grounds or trying to make it seem any different.
Anita Among isn’t the like or concern for protocols, neither is she worried about the grand scheme of things. She seems only to be worried about her ego and her titles. That’s why she fits well with the current NRM. Who doesn’t care about the laws or the ramifications of their actions. As long as the enemies suffer and the opposition lingers in purgatory. That’s how she operates and I can only expect more of that from her. She will use any excuse or deliberation to mock, take shots and even revoke their privileges. That is how she are and now she is promoted for it too.
While the ones wanting an Acholi or a Northerner is left behind. They shouldn’t expect anything else. There is no law or a wording, which stated this or said so. It was wishful thinking, but the President and his CEC didn’t see the value in it. They rather have status quo and call it a night.
Alas, the North and Acholi might feel betrayed… but the High Ranking Officials and the roles of government isn’t ring-fenced or bound by law to one group, unless it is a cultural institution or a monarchy where family lineage matters. Therefore, this was a mission impossible for the Northerners to begin with.
Everyone can say the Westerners and the family affairs of the President makes it seems like other positions are filled with this and the North should have their say. That is true, but it wasn’t in the cards and they didn’t have a fitting character or the leverage with CEC. Because, if they had a person who had the connection, the leverage and the needed qualification of the President. That person would get endorsed. However, that didn’t happen and Teso got the golden ticket this time around.
Am not shocked, as she was one of the front-runners and naturally so. Since she was already the Deputy. This is just continuing the current affairs and nothing else. Among will just pursuit her interests and be a cog in the machinery for the NRM. That is evident by how she was running things and now she has gotten a promotion. Peace.
“Members of Parliament from Acholi, West Nile, and Lango sub-regions have threatened to boycott the elections of the Speaker of Parliament if the Central Executive Committee of the NRM fails to nominate the candidates they endorsed for Speakership. The group wants the Speaker’s position ring-fenced in relation to the region’s contribution in last year’s general polls” (NBS Television, 22.03.2022).
The Acholi Parliamentary Group has already endorsed Hilary Onek, as the Minister and MP for Speaker. While the recent reports and the NRM Electoral Commission had a list of 13 MPs wanting to be the Speaker. Onek wasn’t on the list published by Dr. Tanga Odoi today. Meaning he has not shown interest or in time for the NRM EC to be eligible for the election.
By the list of NRM EC the ones who fits this description is Jackson Atima of Arua, Denis Hamson Obua of Abletong, Felix Okot Ogong of Dokolo, Jane Ruth Aceng of Lira and John Amos Okot of Agago.
So, out of the 13 MPs seeking to be Speaker … 5 of these are from the Greater North or the region of which they ring-fencing the Speakership of the Parliament. This is making it tribal and using the Acholi or North as a reason for someone to get elected. It is not saying they have the best person or the one who is fit to be the speaker.
We know that the Northern MPs and Acholi Parliamentary Group can petition all they want and say they want it again. Because, late Jacob Oulanyah came from the region. That all makes sense, but there is no ownership of the office of speaker. Just like there is no ring-fencing of the Presidency or anything else. There is no unwritten rules either. At least not by the Constitution or anywhere else.
This is just sentiments to ensure the Acholi and Greater North has a say. That all makes sense. However, the ideals will all depend on if any of the NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC) will put this into consideration or implement it. Because it all depends on this body and than later in the election the NRM follow this decision. That is how things goes and this will be no different.
If the Greater Northern MPs thinks so. They have to prove it, but they shouldn’t count on it. The NRM can use the tribalism and these grounds to not accept it. Since, they can speak of merit and qualifications. Nevertheless, the NRM has a hard choice and a region wants answers. This will not be easy…
The NRM CEC isn’t fileld with Northerners either. The NRM have an issue of appointing Westerns to the highest offices and become prominent within the party. So, if they want to give the Republic another picture. They can prove that very easily. Nevertheless, it is hard to count on it.
The nomination is up for grabs and everything is just speculations. The truth will be out tomorrow and the NRM CEC has a die to cast. No matter what eyes they get. It will have ramification and one favoured MP will become the next Speaker of the 11th Parliament. Peace.
Today there are 13 National Resistance Movement (NRM) MPs who has decided to stand as a candidate and field interests in becoming the next speaker in the 11th Parliament after Jacob Oulanyah died in Seattle, United States of America. Because of the unfortunate death of Oulanyah, by law and after Constitutional Law the Parliament had to focus on an election of a Speaker before transacting any business in Parliament. Meaning it couldn’t function or have plenary sessions without a speaker.
This is why the acts of NRM Electoral Commission and the Parliament itself to schedule a new election of speaker has come so quickly. Since, the Parliament would loose a lot of time and the term, if it awaited a long mourning period or whatnot. Sadly, things has to move-on, even when the biggest men or the highest ranking official dies. The Republic continues while the families are holding the memory of deceased near their hearts.
The NRM Central Executive Committee must be happy that so many stepped forward and was willing. Because, some of these 13 candidates are risking their current positions or offices to get another one. They have faith that the NRM and the President see them fit. Because, the will of NRM CEC and the NRM Caucus is usually final.
The opposition can field a candidate or candidates, but doesn’t stand a chance. They are fish out of water. Not because they are not eligible or have possible characters that could fit the description of speaker or deputy speaker for that matter. For one simple reason: The opposition don’t have the numbers or the majority on their side. The NRM tends to support their own and most likely will vote for own candidate.
What is striking is that current Deputy Speaker Anita Among is throwing her weight into it. As she is currently the deputy and thinks she is the right fit to become the current one. Yes, she has held most of the plenary sessions since the 11th Parliament started, because Oulanyah only had like 3 plenary sessions. So, she has had to some time and proven herself. There are even a letter circulating proving that she did resign. Nevertheless, it is all up to the NRM CEC and their choices tomorrow.
The NRM CEC can know about the support and the possible alliances, which are everything from the ones who are supported by the Acholi Parliamentary Group to the ones going on TV and going to the NRM EC in favour of Among. There is all sorts of interests at play. Clearly, some are eyeing a possible upgrade or a promotion. Others are hoping to galvanize support or get recognition. Since, some of these MPs aren’t all that.
We can wonder, if the Ministers in the race has resigned from their offices, this in concern of Jane Ruth Aceng, Sarah Opendi, Jackson Kafuuzi, Jacob Oboth-Oboth or Denis Hamson Obua. I am saying that… because by law and the articles of the Speaker they cannot be both Speaker and a Minister at the same time. Meaning they are possibly risking their offices and has to resign as well.
The likes of Deputy Attorney General Kafuuzi is awaiting recognition from the NRM CEC tomorrow before resigning. Therefore, his awaiting the outcome of tomorrow before going all in. This shows that he has thought ahead, but it is a risk…. Since this signals to the President and the State House, that there are many who wants to get prestigious appointment and get higher up the ladder.
We know that the President don’t approve of naked ambition, but he cannot deny the swaying power of it either. That’s why he creates so many offices and possible state organizations to appoint his loyal cadres. Therefore, he shouldn’t be shocked about it.
The only thing we can do is now to await the results of tomorrows meeting. We have to see who has a shot and such. Since we know the Chief Whip Thomas Tayebwa will get everyone or most of the MPs in line to vote in the direction the NRM CEC commands them to do. This is will be the final straw and the end of the matter. The election and the polls in Parliament will only be formalities after the NRM CEC decisions been made. The results are sort of made when the President and his council has decided.
The NRM MPs will follow that and this the end-game. Peace.
This is common at this day and age, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) is carving out new districts and constituencies at a rate where the state functions are not in place. Neither the designated government services either. The only thing that get in place is the high ranking officials for the Parliament. The rest is left hanging and the district, sub-counties and parishes are left alone. Only the big-men eating in the capitol, while the province is starving.
This is the steady business model. Before every election this is happening. There is swift changes of constituencies and sub-counties. In a manner, where the electoral history of the area vanishes and the amount of voters gets squandered. It is all made to ensure possible rigging and tricking with the ballots.
What is interesting that the Cabinet are hitting certain areas. Where the MPs are less popular or where the President the constituency was erased from the map (Buhweju county). We have seen that in our day and now his carving that one out too. Just to secure a possible NRM MPs instead of opposition ones. That is just what he does.

This here is my quick fix list of people hurt by the changes. This is the key MPs who will have changed constituencies or counties, which implicates their voter mass and their reach for ballot in the up-coming elections. Incumbents can struggle with the changes of carved districts. That has been proven before and could easily happen again in 2021. As the Parliament is ushering these in from next year. Just in time for the 2021 General Elections. Peace.
If you ever thought the Supreme Court would allow the appeal on the Age Limit or the abolishment of the Article 102(b) your wrong. The 1995 Constitution is a document that is to change, as the President see fit or as he is in need.
The ones that believed that the Supreme Court would dismiss it. The result 4 Judges to dismiss versus 3 to appeal. Seems more like trying to make it balanced, than it really is. Because, the judges could have just made it 7 to dismiss or even 6, maybe even 5. Since, the result is practically the same. Close, but no cigar.
There are nothing that is changed, only that all legal remedy before the General Election 2021 is gone. The road for the sole candidate of the National Resistance Movement. Nothing will stop him, yet again. Like it is child’s play, which it is. Because, everyone around him plays to his tune. The ones who doesn’t end behind bars for silly reasons like Besigye. That is just life in the republic.
Again, and again, all the remedy, all the legal and Parliamentary steps is taken to secure the Self-Styled dictatorship of the President. In the vision and way of Museveni. If you think it is brilliant. It is not, it is just misuse of state institutions and ensuring one man get everything.
This isn’t validating a constitution or rule of law. This is validating the Presidency and his cronies. There is nothing noble or justification of it. Except keeping the status quo and the misuse of the power, which the NRM and the ones around the President already does.
If you think the verdict of 18th April 2019 is splendid and worth celebrating. Than celebrate the arrests of opposition members, the assaults on civil society organizations, political rallies ambushed, concerts blocked, journalists silenced, radios losing their licenses and everything else that is used to stop the opposition from organizing. It will only get worse, before it gets better.
For one reason, there is less and less reasons for Museveni to play around. He has everything and all laws is in hands. All the security organizations is following his memos and the Parliament is doing as directed. There is no one questioning or stopping him from doing what he says. Even if it failure and foolish.
Don’t anticipate this verdict to make things better. It won’t, it will just give the President all the reasons to continue his run. To continue his persistence of stealing, dealing and killing everyone else seeking office. Ensuring overpower and control. Giving no way. Just being him. There is no other way to look at it.
This is again, giving all the powers to the same man, that has run the republic since 26th January 1986. We could joke, may even say Bosco is out of his mind. But he isn’t, his just using the Supreme Court, like he has used everything else for 3 decades.
He just got the final nudge, the final nail in the coffin. He has abolished the term limits, now he officiated the destruction of the age limit. Who knows what is next, but this man will do whatever it takes to be in power. To think otherwise, is a lie or you haven’t gotten the whole picture. If not you are naive and thinks this is a good. Which is not.
This is validating the corruption, the arrest of democracy and also the ability of others to compete. As it is yet another fixture ready for the victory of Team Museveni. Peace.
What if I told you that, based on the incoming numbers from today’s reporting and last year. We can establish the certain cost of the Age Limit Bill and how much the National Resistance Movement (NRM) or the NRM MPs has cost in total. An amendment of the Constitution, which in purpose have given President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Life Presidency.
With that in mind, I have calculated what each of the NRM MPs have gotten in payment. As it first was the cost of Consultations and the total value of that, later I have taken the direct payment for passing the bill. So take a look!
Latest report on the payment:
“The first installment of Shs 40 million was paid before the amendment was passed in 2017 with another installment of Shs 100 million coming immediately after the passing of the Bill. The final installment of Shs 60 million was to be paid on November 30 last year. At the beginning of this week, the MPs received telephone calls from the leadership of the NRM Parliamentary caucus to go for the money but instead of the Shs 60 million, the MPs received Shs 45 million” (Kabuubi, 2019).
Lets do some calculations:
Each of the 317 Members of the NRM Caucus have gotten in total Shs. 85 million shillings or offered this, as it is reported. I will look at the whole sum for everyone, as it is to hectic to calculate the ones that didn’t receive it all, as they wanted the whole sum of Shs. 100 million, but the proof of cost is still up-to-date. As it shows how much the state anticipated to pay for the whole operation to the MPs in question.
So the sum for passing to date is about Shs. 85 million Ugandan shillings doesn’t say so much internationally, so if your using the foreign exchange today. Each MP would get in about $22,740 US Dollars. That is in both instances with the total fee, however, today, they got equlent about “only” $ 12,041 US Dollars or £9,415 Great British Pounds.
This is the payment done for the bill itself, but for the ones remembering back in time. This isn’t the first fee, these honourables got for doing so. The MPs got a consultation fee each. Which I stated like this in October 2018, when the MPs got Shs. 29 millions each for consulting their constituents.
To put the 29 million in perspective is about $ 8000 United States Dollars or £ 6000 Great British Pounds (With the exchange rate in October 2018). So it isThe whole cost of the consultation of the bill was $ 3,553.660 or about 3,5 million United States Dollar. That is the cost of the MPs consultations is equivalent of 13 billion Uganda Shillings or about 3,5 million US Dollars.
That was then, but now with the revelation, there are more money at play. Making the calculation more interesting. As the whole freaking project is getting under wraps. Because, we should calculate all the millions spent on these MPs, to prove the value of Life Presidency in the eyes of Bosco. As he sees this sums fit to give life to his dream of ruling until eternity. The $ 3,5m USD was premature. Since there was even the direct payments to the 317 NRM Caucus MPs. Which was revealed today.
With that in mind, lets do the Math:
Shs. 29m + Shs. 85m = Shs. 114m or $ 30,501 USD or even £ 23,844 GBP each.
That is what the MPs gotten each in Consultation Fees and Direct Payment. We should still look at the whole shindig. Therefore we have to look into how much Shs. 114m are times 317 MPs. That is about Shs. 36 billion or into $ 9,6m USD, or about £ 7,5m GBP.
To put that in perspective how much that really is. In Ugandan Perspective, it is as much as the Namugongo Museum Development Committee planned in 2016 to spend on Anglican Martyrs Shrine in Namugongo, as they would develop the museum, build a conference centre, guest house and a library.
To do another one, the value of the Age Limit bills as of today, it is about the value of two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, which is valued about $4.8m USD. Which is an upgrade, as in October last year, the value of the Age Limit was valued to one single Aston Martin. Which is fine itself, but a bit low, considering the value of the Presidency and its perks. The Presidency should cost more and be more expensive. This is still cheap, even if two Koenigsegg is a costly affair.
We should expect more, as we know how the prices on good players are in the Premier League, they are through the roof and a slot of the Presidency shouldn’t be sold for cheap, it should be some Gareth Bale, Christiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappé or Neymar. The Ugandan President cost as much as the transfer of Nottingham Forrest Michael Antonio to West Ham in 2016, which in the schemes of things. Is nothing in comparison to the trade of Age Limit. The gift of extension of Presidency and being the Head of State, the Commander-in-Chief and so-on. That should be valued more.
Two fantastic Koeningsegg or a Championship transfer to the Premier League isn’t capturing the seriousness in the trade. To get the opportunity of becoming President for Life, should cost more. We all should agree on that. Peace.
Gyagenda Kabuubi – ’Cash bonanza in Parliament as MPs get paid age limit balance’ 09.01.2019, link: https://intelpostug.com/2019/01/09/cash-bonanza-in-parliament-as-mps-get-paid-age-limit-balance/
There are something striking about the defense of the loss in Bugiri Municipality, would think there was warfare and additional cult-like obsessions from the opposition who won. That they we’re tricking the Electoral Commission and that they had the economic capacity of the National Resistance Movement (NRM).
When he claims the losses of the recent by-elections are on voter tourism, have he seen many buses hired by the Forum for Democratic Change? Have he seen or heard reports of dodgy caravans crossing one district to another on polling?
This is the whirlwind of nonsense, as a mad-man using all methods to capture the lack of finesse and use of message from him. President Museveni are using fear and intimidation towards the public, that is why everyone isn’t biting and he cannot manage that. He is now seeing that the opposition if they have the right amount of power behind them, they can actually galvanize popularity. However, he calls it sectarianism and pseudo-ideology, nevertheless, the first I don’t even care for answering, but second needs to be addressed.
By a man of recycled promises, an empty treasure chest, 32 years of rule, less and less results to prove of his ideology or even governance. He shouldn’t claim of others, he should keep his mouth shut and walk-on. Museveni is an empty headed buffoon, whose place is on the farm rearing cows and not being an executive. The defense of the loss in Bugiri proves it.
He call it these things, when they don’t follow the Correct Line, the “Follow My Guidelines”, that is how he is and he cannot help himself. That is part of the lost cause, the man with the old hat. Thinks everything should be focused around and his reign. The ones who doesn’t listen or being servants to his orders, are sectarian or following a pseudo-ideology, if you feel that sounds like hogwash? Your absolutely right.
President Museveni, you have overstayed your welcome, people are tired of you and your lies. You have promised the world, but not even given them a glimpse of honest leadership. That is why people become your enemies, when they are not listening to you or following your commands. Which is sort of a bugging narrative to repeat, but the reality, nevertheless.
You still have the majority, still sitting secure in the State House and controls the army, so right now, Mr. President, you have no need to fear. These elements will always be out there, because everyone will never follow your every command and every word. Because that wise your not and that level of expertise in every field, you have not.
You might have taxed the Over-The-Top Service, but your delivering Down-At-The-Bottom Services to your people. Time for you to relax and figure another way to rule. I know it is to late, but someone has to say it. Best would be to retire and hang-out with Mugabe. Peace.
