My belief now is that the President Museveni we now see; Is a leader without a Vision!

M7 NRM

The Parliament of Uganda is supposed to discuss and read the Constitutional Amendment Bill of 2016. This happens as both Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah will not want to be responsible for ushering in the bill. As the current parts of the bill is to amend the Constitution.

The 1995 Constitution that already have been amended and fixed to be perfect for the Executive and his party; the strangest thing is that President Museveni didn’t see his future and how he would act. Because the Constitutions have already abolished the Presidential Term limits, something that happen just in time for the third term; for some reason the President had only written the ability to have two terms. That is without counting the first period where he wasn’t elected, but selected by the gun!

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his National Resistance Movement (NRM) prove again their inability to be honest with themselves and with the public. That is because their leader and President don’t have a true vision. Except for the vision that is the man with the vision, without knowing what that vision is. Because if he knew what vision he had the stability of government functions and built institutions would be steady. Since it isn’t so, it’s a proof of the inability to have a steady vision.

Because of that lack of vision and ability to see his own future and how it will turn by his actions; it was by rare luck in the race between him and Dr. Paul Ssemogerere that he blasted out the pledge the citizens the promise of Universal Primary Education (UPE) and he actually worked for it for a while, especially when the donor funds to it came as well. The President Museveni doesn’t have a vision and has an ability now to fix his future. If he had than he been on the farm and not spoken the same lingo of fighting corruption while dropping brown envelopes and extra fees for signing bills and acts in Parliament. That is why the Parliamentarians are travelling to the United States.

That the man who spoke of leaders sitting to long and talking retiring after two terms is still there shows that he has no real vision. If he had a real vision he would have left behind a legacy, a fiscal responsible government and made ready for the next in line to continue his progress. But President Museveni doesn’t have it in him, his only vision was himself. So the Constitutional Amendment is in another Member of Parliament’s Hon. Kafeero Ssekitoleko and Hon. Paul Amoru who doing the bidding for their master.

Museveni Kyankwanzi 01.08.2016

Even if it was his idea as it is not really news, it has been at former leadership trainings on Kyankwanzi Resolution of 2014 of the Movement said this:

“Live in Kyankwanzi where the NRM orientation and retreat is on going! Resolution has been passed to extend the term limit from 5 years to 7 years!”.

This never happen, because the vision of the President is not existing. If so then he would have managed to pulled through the 2014 Resolution from the Leadership Conference of the Party. But the Museveni doesn’t have that. He we’re able to pull through as younger man and still without fatigue of age the Constitution and nearly 10 years later fixing the Constitution again to amend his lacking vision.

The lack of vision, the vision which isn’t a vision; if he had a vision he wouldn’t be a walking budget who drops 100m Shilling at Nakawa SACCO and also at certain public NAADS in Mukono recently. If he had a vision there would be accounts, accountability and structures for these monies and not just when he pop-by like limited edition Santa Clause. Well, that is because of lesser known vision and knowledge of the reality on the ground.

Just like the vision must be lost in all the giant programs and infrastructure projects that doesn’t seem to be genuine and honest to fix them all; seem more like business to get loans and aid than actual development. That’s like recycling old pledges and promising town and city status during the campaign. Yet, another proof that he has lost his touch and views of any kind of vision.

So that the man is now using MPs to secure his future and getting MPs to vote himself into longer stay in power, isn’t powerful, it isn’t revolutionary. If it was revolutionary than the former despots and tyrants of the world was the ones who drove engineering and invention; most likely that happen in places where people wasn’t told how to think. In the same mind when a leader doesn’t accept the will of the ones he leads; he isn’t visionary. What he really is? More scary; because the values of the citizenship… gets devalued because their leader doesn’t have any vision and doesn’t need to deliver anything to his citizens.

I know it is harsh, but I have compelled him to be racketeering gangster. A man without a vision and just running government on random is being on the up-and-up!

Salim Selah NAPIL

President Museveni doesn’t have a clear vision, when the main goal is getting fellow Members of Parliament to vote himself for life. That is the endgame of the Constitutional Amendment Bill of 2016. If they abolish and rewrite the words of a President cannot be older than 75 years old. The Old man with a Hat doesn’t have a vision under the hat. On his head now he has a hat and he has an expensive car, he buys the MPs to vote his will and uses the speakers to whip them into his line. If he doesn’t’ do that his family leader Gen. Salim Selah talks and fix. Just like he did with the lost-boy Go-Forward Christopher Aine of the Amama Mbabazi Campaign Team; who he got to show up like a rabbit out of a hat.

President Museveni isn’t visionary anymore; he isn’t clear and doesn’t have clear prospect of what he want. Other than getting loyalty by the ones he can pay for their silence and get credit for other people’s work. If not he will complain that others haven’t completed it.

The President is without a vision and only leads because he get checks and controls the people, not because he cares about Government or the Institutions of Government; he is there for his ego and his own wish to rule them all. Therefore he has pushed for the East African Federation, but he will not get the will of the Tanzanian, Rwandan or Kenyan to set him over them. They don’t respect him in that way, unless they can gain some pocket-change from the old man with the hat (Still not a vision). That is why they we’re both fighting for his attention now recently, because the Tanzanian and Kenyan wanted to be sure of the Crude Oil Pipeline.

By now, he doesn’t work for better government, but for a better position for himself and his family. That he even said in an interview to BBC in 2014. So the people shouldn’t forget that. Peace.

Letter – Parliament of Uganda Re: Plenary Sittings of Parliament (31.08.2016) – Parliament suspended until 9th September!

Besigye campaigns for FDC candidates in Omoro district (Youtube-Clip)

“FDC’s Dr. Kizza Besigye has pitched camp in Omoro district where he is campaigning for the Forum for Democratic Party candidates contesting for the woman parliamentary and District Chairperson seats. Besigye implored locals to fight poverty and disease” (NTV Uganda, 2016)

Mzee have finally wiped out the opposition as he promised after the announced victory!

Museveni Kenya Speech 2016

“I will wipe out the opposition completely in the next 5 years. NRM is going to be stronger” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni

Let be clear, right after announced victory from the Electoral Commission and Eng. Dr. Badru Kiggundu, President Museveni said that he would wipe out the opposition and he has done it with passion and certainly soon done it as his duty. In a way to make sure that the Multi-Party system in the Nation is a flop.

The opportunities and the silver coined framed opposition figures in the Forum for Democratic Change are joining forces in the Shadow Cabinet to gain some estimated figures from the coffers of Parliament and play the parliamentary pawns that Mzee needs this term.

Betty Amongi Jimmy Akena Statehouse 21.06.2016

While the Uganda People’s Congress are busy trading their soul with NRM, as they are getting two slots in the 81 size cabinet of 2016-2021. The rest of UPC under Olara Otunnu are distancing and in general might even create another branch, and party that becomes a new profile, since they don’t want to be part of the NRM and Obote’s son selling of inheritance to Mzee.

Uganda Federal Alliance have also sold their fortunes for a Cabinet position and is therefore silenced by the Mzee, as she the leader of the party want to serve him and also be a part of his established court.

The hardliners of FDC are either lingering in jail, detained, house-arrested or kidnapped by security forces as the rest of the party are playing hide-and-seek close to Yusuf Lule Road in Kampala. So the party of FDC is even into the half who wants to continue the defiance of Dr. Kizza Besigye, and the ones that are settling for the silver-coins with the lingering blood on it.

Ken Lukyamuzi

The Grand question is: where is the Conservative Party of Ken Lukayamuzi? They are not to be seen, JEEMA are they still out there? Justice Forum and their men who even have been besieged by the Police during the days of officiating Mzee; the smaller parties are totally silent or at a non-approach. Democratic Party and Norbert Mao have addressed concern and the initial connection with the shoot-out in Gulu, while that was not true and government made conspiracy, and with the newly dispatched Amama Mbabazi, the party should be stronger, though their lingering nothingness, proves that the ability that Mzee have had since leaving for his swearing in,

The Police Force monitoring and detaining, silencing and attacking the opposition, together with trading with weaker minded opposition have made the stalemate livable, as the mentor and ticking problem of Besigye, is going from court to court, and addressing charges after charges and even treason, as IGP Kayihura are paying criminals to be witnesses and uses all means, and even most brain-dead police officers to lie in court; like he did in Kasangati Court of late; when the justice had to listen to the testimony of the Police Officer who was a former colonel, but never been to the army. So the truth is that, as long as he doesn’t have a voice, the men are walking around unsure of how behave towards the oppressive and militarized government of National Resistance Movement.

Besigye Nakawa 18.05.2016

All of the Opposition parties are toothless right now, the Human Rights Organizations of Kampala are raided and nothing happens. People and activist are kidnapped, soldiers are being shot and killed in made up conspiracies, while colonels and sergeants are detained as well. The paranoia of the state combined with the militarized politics and police force are taken freedoms and taken all parts of the state. The Opposition is on life support… Who is out there to save it, as the big man Dr. Kizza Besigye is away and nobody else have the legitimacy or the charisma to fight the powers with peaceful means while Mzee uses every tactic in the book to destroy and conquer them. Something he has been successful with ever since election and the reaping results are happening now, as he 10th Parliament are soon in function and the government are soon departing into brown envelopes, as business is back to normal after a hectic year. Peace.

FDC NEC with their recent actions “acting like a fish out of water”

FDC NEC

As the news of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) National Executive Committee (NEC) accepted two persons who wanted to be in shadow cabinet in Parliament of Uganda. The ones that are shocked that certain parts of the FDC-O wanted this, shouldn’t be, as the FDC have been there before and is going back into its shell, like a tortoise.

FDC under Rtd. Maj. Gen. Mughisha Muntu who proclaimed victory over Museveni and his NRM in February have either swallowed a lot of scallops or lost the bargained time and though a WhatsApp update was to reinvent the internet. While his man and the one who made the campaign of 2015/2016 so massive is lingering in Luzira, and for those who don’t know that is Dr. Kizza Besigye.

While certain FDC candidates, leaders and others have been house-arrested, kidnapped or even tortured. So for their hardships certain parts of central leadership have given them up. Like the FDC Youth leader who was tortured in Northern Uganda. As much as the FDC candidate against Jacob Oulanyah, the new Deputy Speaker in Parliament is reported to be detained around Kololo. So while the FDC members and leaders, candidates even tortured and arrested without reason. Certain MPs still have the armor and Teflon to say they we’re loser and want to bend backwards towards the NRM and Museveni.

NBS Presidential Election Petition 2016

The 10th Parliament is a sham; it is rigged to fix the stamps for Museveni and his vision. While the rest of the men are puppeteers who are there to mop the floor of the vomit that is coming out Mzee mouth. I am just saying what so many are thinking, but not having the honor of saying. With this in mind, while he is handpicking the most useless heads to run dozen ministries, to follow his vision and his proposed laws.

Hon. Winnie Kiiza of Kasese is now the Leader of Opposition and has taken the token over from last term Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi. The second position went to FDC Spokesperson Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju becoming the Chief Whip of the shadow cabinet in Parliament. So the FDC-O or the FDC NEC feared losing this would lose their little entitlement in Parliament in this term, even if this is smidge of gain, not even worth talking about. It would be like given Ministry of Information and National Guidance or some other tiny ministry without access to any central funds or such.

Defiance Pens

The action is countering the whole Defiance campaign and the one that the Party was standing behind went it was hot. The heat and the intimidation together with the little fear the Democratic Party MP or Uganda People’s Congress MP could shelf them even more in the Parliament; I presume that is the case. But what is to gain for compliance when you have fought with defiance?

Dear FDC MPs and FDC NEC what was with the defying the NRM and Museveni, was that a joke to you? Was that something that clings nice in November 2015 until March 2016? Now it’s like a living fish on land for certain of you, as you try to become fish in the water again.

Besigye Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

I just have to ask, since this counters what Besigye who have heart and is stuck in prison for his faith in the will of change in the Nation. Not to be obedient to Museveni, as he sells his soul for an extra cow to his farms. With that he will soon be on trial for treason against the state. While the MPs and Central leadership tries to salvage some silver and gold in Parliament as Opposition. That is weak tea

Don’t FDC Party President Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu cares about all the ones who were detained for the cause? Doesn’t the rest of FDC NEC care to: Vice Chairman Proscovia Salaamu-Musumba, Leader of Oppostion Hon. Wafula Oguttu, Amb. Waswa Birigwa, Hon. Cecilia Ogwal, Hon. Jack Sabiiti, Patrick Baguma, Hon. Ronald Reagan Okum and Nabilah Naggayi Sempala. And others who might be on the FDC NEC meeting this week and decided for Hon. Winnie Kiiza and Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju.

Winnie Kiiza 26.05.2016

We are allowed to question after they we’re so hardline and astute during the campaign and after, as the FDC headquarters we’re besieged and even made as a crime-scene. Party Youth and other activists we’re taken, even just pedestrians passing by demonstrations gotten detained because of the cause, the defiance of the NRM and Museveni; something that is now lost. As the FDC NEC accept the military takeover and the Police Brutality of the party and the members. The Defiance Campaign from their standpoint is just nonsense, when they sell their cause for a meager and meaningless position. If it was a position worth a damn, wouldn’t the ambition of the man as Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi say “no” to it now. That because he knows how little it really matters.

The only one who has won on this is Museveni and his 10th Parliament that was rigged in favor and have the amount of MPs set for NRM Regime, so they set the standard and fixed to work well for Museveni, that is why the business as usual with Hon. Rebecca Kadaga as Speaker and Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah. They don’t care much for the opposition, and they will care even less, when they see how easy the FDC gave way. The Museveni have spoken many time to crash and crush opposition. This is a little kiss of death.

Like the one held by Special Forces Command who confirmed beaten Hon. Oulanyah in the rigged election Simon Tolit of Omoro County. NRM regime even tried to buy him with a job in Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) and 1.5 billion, so that he would silently go away from the victory, since he didn’t he got kidnapped for his defiance. So since he defying the business as usual, he has to now be detained in the mercy of the SFC.

Tolit Victory

With that in mind, The Museveni has the ability to tangle a little candy and the FDC NEC went to eat it. Instead of standing by the men and woman who have been and still are detained because of the Defiance Campaign, and actually defying the NRM Regime. That is just bickering sad and mediocre actions from the central leadership. They didn’t regain anything; they didn’t win anything and with taking the positions in Parliament, only lost…

After the knowledge of how little NRM plays a fair game, how it eats all parts of society and takes everything for itself, why validate the rigged election and now yet again look like a fish out of water?

They can’t be both winners with defiance and also losers with compliance, which is math that doesn’t add up. You can’t be both working against a Police State and being parts of it at the same time. You can’t hire certain MPs and use them as pawns and think that people will like it.

Mugisha Muntu 23.01.2016 Hoima District

The FDC should be defiant against the meager offer of silver. Said “No” give it UFA, DP or UPC. UPC should have had it, they are a Museveni branch anyway, and they are working hand in hand in harmony, something that FDC should not do. They should stand on the point that they won the election and deserves to be compensated and get justice. Not stand nodding heads to the NRM and say “Yes we do, Sir!” This is happening while Museveni is using the Police and SFC to detain the FDC to silence them and crashing them. For the Museveni, this is perfect for him, and worse for Besigye who are lost nearly alone in Luzira, while his party said “Yes” to tainted silver. Hope that silver saves you, because you gave way to Museveni and NRM Regime by doing so, instead of standing on the barricades and actually weaken his force, day after day, and make him more and more dishonest. Make him more and more paranoid as he would do what he could to silence you and the actions would tarnish him, more and more. Now he can get away with all the nonsense and Badru M. Kiggundu can say: “I was sort of right” since the FDC gave-up. Peace.

MPs Want 85 Billion Shillings for Cars (Youtube-Clip)

“In the 9th parliament, the Parliamentary Commission gave each legislature 103 million shillings to procure vehicles that meet their standards as members of Parliament . The story of the 10th parliament is different as the new legislators now want this fee almost doubled. They are now asking for 200 million shillings and if approved then the government will have to part with a total of 85.4 billion shillings for the vehicles alone. They argue that given the state of economy and the new taxes that were imposed on Vehicles, this increment is justified. The new legislators also demand for the reinstatement of the Constituency Development fund that were scrapped in the 9th Parliament. Before scrapping of the fund each legislator was being given 10 million shillings cash annually for the development of his constituency. The legislators also demand for an increment in their monthly emoluments from 26 to 50 million shillings. If Parliament is to pay 50 million shillings per legislator, the Parliamentary commission will then be mandated to spend 21.3 billion shillings on the emoluments of the 427 legislators per month. So before the new legislators can have even their first sitting, these are the demands and before we know it, they will definitely be more than this” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

Hon. Nsereko for Deputy Speaker was flawed from the get-go; we knew the paid NRM MPs would honor their Executive by voting for Hon. Oulanya; and my comments towards the Empty Suits!

Uganda-parliament-2

I am sorry to say this, it’s the spirit of Olara Otunnu that is running through me; the 10th Parliament is running on the same veins as the end of the 9th Parliament. A rigged and well-fueled spirit of the Executive, as the bribes from above high set the standard.

Even Judge Stephen Kavuma, the man behind the decree suspending and abolishing the FDC Party, solemnly swore in Rebecca Kadaga, the loyal bird with feathers for the Executive into Speaker of Parliament, as she speaks and thinks like the Executive. Who knew right?

And you the run for Nsereko is not fair one when the National Resistance Movement even get people like Col. Kulagye to step down for Hon. Oulanyah who has no scruples to gain certain levels of power. As Jacob Oulanyah knows and all who follows knows is that he is elected on ghost votes and not on the local voters as they shunned him.

Hon. Joshua Anywarach wanted to suspend the secret ballot on the Deputy Speaker rally between Oulanyah and Nsereko as then the NRM could check who ate the money fairly and who might not be loyal to the party line under the Executive, though the Speaker Kadaga did not accept that ruling.

That Hon. Oulanyah becoming the Deputy Speaker is not surprising as the money was thrown to the NRM MPs to buy “Suits” and be loyal to the party line, and select the men who the Executive had handpicked for the affair, as he knows that he can control them and their decisions, by throwing pocket-chains while the Executive clears the Bank of Uganda and all other funds for himself. As he keeps the Members of Parliament Ignorant and silence the Opposition… those who don’t believe that ask either FDC or JEEMA about that recently?

Even if Nathan Nandala-Mafabi was a part of the opening of the House and the Parliament, still the Forum for Democratic Change is not in a peaceful place and in a honorable position, while they are either in courts, detained or harassed by the Police Force.

So the news of this today shouldn’t surprise you:

“Only 398 members of 427 MPs have so far registered for the sitting today. Voting delayed as Clerks counter check” (NBS TV Uganda, 19.05.2016).

I am sure 20 of them is either on house-arrest or even detained as we speak, because they surely parts of the few MPs from the FDC that the NRM Regime and their Police Force have silenced as the crackdown on the opposition, that went into high gear in the days running up to the swearing in of Museveni for his seventh term.

NTV Uganda 19.05.2016

“Hon. Rwamirana and UPC’s Hon. Betty Amongin second nomination of Hon. Oulanyah as deputy Speaker of the 10th parliament” (NTV Uganda, 19.05.2016).

While the Uganda People’s Congress, was as expected acting as a NRM branch of token loyalty, something Otunnu 2 years ago spoke about that the NRM had paid several of the leadership to follow Museveni instead of the Party Line, so the historical party have switched from being a one of kind and instead is as loyal to the Executive as the other parts of NRM-O and the NRM CEC. That is sad sight and shows what price the agreement between Hon. Jimmy Akena and his central leadership in the UPC have done with the NRM during the Election. 

Just as the Executive have crashed the opposition, he has also done everything in his power to succumb the Media as he hated the release of the obvious Muhoozi Project that even escalated this week, as he sieged Daily Monitor and shut down the paper for days after a letter was released through the paper and from Gen. Sejusa’s files. People forget that so fast. So yesterday’s announcement should be put into the space:

“President Museveni has appointed former Daily Monitor Managing Editor Don Wanyama as his Presidential Press Secretary replacing Tamale Mirundi” (NBS TV Uganda, 18.05.2016).

Secret Ballot Parliament 19.05.2016

So the Daily Monitor who has been less of an opposition paper and been more in favor of the NRM, shows it’s true face as in the reality they have been shadowed by the regime ever since. So with this in mind, that an opposition like Muhammad Nsereko tries to become Deputy Speaker is flawed, as the UPC and Daily Monitor is not really opposition anymore, you have to fly birds with Chimps Reports. While just let the boggled mind still believe that Andrew Mwenda is think-tank on his own, while sounding the horn of the corruption and his own corrupt mind, that is fitting with the ush. 5M suits of 19th May that gave way to Jacob Oulanyah and his gracious ways.

So my mind went like this while the MPs we’re voting in the Parliament. This is what happen after the secret ballot that even certain MPs was afraid about, since the NRM MPs gotten more money to vote for the candidate that the Executive have decided for them. As Hon. Rebecca Kadaga:  “If everyone has voted I now invite MP Nsereko and MP Oulanyah to nominate atleast 2 agents”.

Deputy Speaker Uganda 19.05.2016

Kadaga and the Parliament are after two hours voting as the Speaker didn’t’ need a vote, since she was unopposed. While the Deputy Speaker between Hon. Oulanyah and Hon. Nsereko. Even as the counting was going on, the Executive wanted to control the voting and tallying as he wants his vision on everything and that has gone stronger with his age, soon he will tell the cooks at the parliament how much bananas they need in the matooki to make it the Western Ugandan way; President Museveni: “I would like to raise a point of order”.

Speaker Kadaga: “No your Excellency. As this happen”.

As they count Daily Monitor recounts the tallying like this:

“CORRECTION: MP’s jeer when Nsereko’s name is read out. Well It is Oulanya, Oulanya, Oulanya and they reply yeeee” (Daily Monitor, 19.05.2016).

Nsereko 19.05.2016

So seems like this set the standard and that Oulanya or Oulanyah is the one to be the deputy speaker in Parliament, as I expected when I woke up this morning and would be the same when I was going back to bed tonight. President, the Executive Museveni had paid the NRM to be his puppets in the house and Parliament and he will continue to pay them to act in his stead in Parliament. It cost to be an empty suit in the Ugandan Parliament first of the verdicts and bought choices of the Executive is 5 Million Shillings and surely give way for Hon. Oulanya.

The results of voting in the Parliament on the Deputy Speaker were this:

Oulanya – 300 Votes,

Nsereko – 115 Votes,

Invalid – 1 Vote.

The one invalid vote must be somebody special, who do you think is the fellow who made the bo-boo in Parliament today?

As the NRM Party wrote seconds after the announcement:

“300 votes cast in favour of Jacob Oulanyah for Dep Speaker of #10thParliament” (NRM Party, 19.05.2016).

Oulanyah 19.05.2016

With this result is there some way that Eng. Badru M. Kiggundu the voting genius can cook this result to a massive result, and make it even more aggressively win in the Parliament, as the Executive believes he should have sanitized the whole of the Parliament.

So my thoughts from this morning was justified, as the Executive had to be there and spread his fear and intimidate the newly selected NRM MPs who doesn’t know his procedures and his rule. In the Parliament in Uganda, you are if you are a NRM Member there, you are a mouthpiece of the President Museveni and not your own mind, just look at Otafiire, did he sound like a wise-man or somebody who thought on his own? The same will be with his new cabinet, where people will work for the Executive, not for the grand state or the progress of Uganda, but to centralize the Power amongst the Executive, nothing else, and the Opposition who is there, is so that he can pin-point at them and smile to the Donors, “We have sort of Multi-Party Democracy, but they got no party in decisions, but they are there, remember give me and my Government money!”.

Enough of the nonsense at Parliament while Dr. Kizza Besigye ferment in Luzira, and is charged with treason, while the Opposition is harassed and treated as criminals, because they stand-up against the Executive and does not follow his mission, sorry vision. To the Executives way to gain wealth for himself and his family that he has worked on over time. Still, I will leave with the statement from the FDC Secretary Harold Kaija as he was freed today after days on days in SID Kireka. Take a look!

Harold Kaija

Harold Kaija’s statement after being released from SID Kirek Prison:

“FREE AT LAST

I want to thank all that stood with me when the Dictator jailed me for 9 days at SID Kireeka for defying Justice Kavuma’s order!

In the Kireeka cells I found Ariho Sam well known in the FDC circles at MUK. He is charged with treason. He inserted my name and that of Michael Kabaziguruka in his statement as one of the people he consulted while starting his activities. I asked him why, he told me he had been beaten. I find this strange!! The truth is that I had not seen him for 7 years. He called me one day and u invited him to office. I told him that our party was only involved in Non Violence Actions.

I want to thank my Brother Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi I made a One Man Protest at the SID offices until I was released yday. He asked to be jailed with me if they didn’t allow him to go with me.

From what we gathered, all FDC cases, the IGP has the final case.

I can’t forget those who didn’t fear to come to Kireeka to visit me. Hon. Mwiru Paul, Hon. Adeke Anna Ebaju, and her sister, Hon. Wafula Oguttu, Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju, Dr. Odwer, Senior Counsel Rwakafuzi.

Activists Kigongo Ayub, Fred W Mutibwa, Ayub, Kalule Sam, Namutebi, Richard Nyombi Byemalo, Musitwa, the NRM Poor Youth,

My family David, Ruth and Edna.

I also want to thank the Social Media Activists for demanding for my release that one day the Kireeka leadership had to come to my cell at mid night to find out if I was keeping my phone. There was Punic allover the place for two days.

Lastly I thank Ingrid Turinawe and Doreen for the mobilisation.

What I can authoritatively tell u is that we have a lot of support in the forces” (Harold Kajja, 19.05.2016).

That’s enough for now. Peace.

Hon Willian Nzoghu Questions Presence of Museveni as Voting for Deputy Speaker Goes On (Youtube-Clip)

NRM MPs Get 5M to Buy Suits (Youtube-clip)

The ruling NRM legislators in the 10th Parliament have each received sh5 million from President Yoweri Museveni to help them buy suits and organize small parties for their supporters after swearing in. Also from Parliament, legislators are expected to meet tomorrow to elect a new Speaker and Deputy Speaker to steer the country’s 10thHouse. Whereas the incumbent Speaker Rebecca Kadaga is poised to retain her seat, the race for the Deputy Speaker is wide open, with two of the three candidates all having equal chances” (NTV Uganda, 2016)

Continued Oppression of the Opposition without any level of Peace; while the NRM tries to consolidate the power amongst the Presidents family with the elevation of Muhoozi!

Besigye Nakawa 18.05.2016

Still days after the Swearing-in of both Presidents of Uganda, the Opposition is still under fire. The fire is burning and the opposition have to fight still for their liberties while the NRM-Regime tries to act as nothing happen. The National Resistance Movement and their Members of Parliament that are sworn-in tries to act normal.

Before the Courts open the Police had made roadblocks around the building and area around the Nakawa Court, so that not even boda-boda’s to pass, bicycles and cars was not allowed to enter the perimeter of the court. They did this to make sure the judgement and verdict of today’s court we’re not on public display!

As the FDC Presidential Candidate and the ones that question the Power of President Musveni, Dr. Kizza Besigye who we’re charged with Treason for his second time by NRM Regime, we’re today set in Court at Nakawa Magistrate Court. He came directly from Luzira Prison and back to Luzira in quick speed.

Besigye 18.05.2016 Nakawa

As FDC explained the Courtship of their leader:

“President Kizza Besigye has been charged with treason at Nakawa Court early this morning and remanded till 1st June. At 08:30 am Dr. Olive Kobusingye was near court but by the time she entered court at 08:40, The President was being taken away after being charged within a few seconds earlier. Media, lawyers, supporters and friends we were locked out” (Forum for Democratic Change, 18.05.2016).

Turinawe 18.05.2016 P3

Houses of Michael Kabiziguruka and Ingrid Turinawe have been closed and monitored by the Military Police.

Turinawe 18.05.2016 P1

As Ingrid Turinawe states herself:

“Comrades, police has cordoned off my house. Deployment very heavy! They have Taken positions all around the house. I can’t guess what they want to do next, it’s deep in the night. They arrived at exactly 1am. Two police trucks just parked crossing my way outside the gate” (Turinawe, 18.05.2016).

While Lord Mayor Lukwago had to hassle with Police Officers to be allowed to go to Court and defend his case, as he had today been up-to 14 days under house-arrest without a clear charge. The Police Officers accepted it finally. While he had courted a case with a legal team comprised of Hon. Sseggona, Asuman Basalirwa and Isaac Ssemakadde. The ones Judge looking over the case was G1 Magistrate, H. W Semondo of the Makindye Magistrate Court.

Lukwago 18.05.2016

The verdict was finally positive as Lord Mayor Lukwago states:

“Isaac Ssemakadde formally moved court to, inter-alia order police vacate my home and forthwith set me free. Before court could give its ruling, which is reserved for 27th May, they hurriedly fled from my home. THANK YOU all for your prayers and support. Aluta continua” (Lukwago, 18.05.2016).

The newly elected Councillor of Makerere Doreen Nyanjura her former rental room have been sieged by a commando of military Police during the night, as the Police Force seemingly doesn’t know the right house.

This here is just a few cases as there is surely more and more coming in the coming days as the NRM regime is in shock mode to silence the Opposition and crush it, like President Museveni spoke about during the campaign and after. He has no quarrels of doing so to consolidate all power, that what this term is all about, therefore seconds after swearing-in Muhoozi Kainerugba was elevated from Brigadier to Major General and also wanted to establish a higher order for the Special Force Command, which initially the son of the President is in charge of.

So the regime is centralizing more and more power as even Gen. Salim Selah have been in charge of the Operation Wealth Creation and henceforth rigged the systems and funds so that the development haven’t really been there, as the Museveni-family could eat some of the funds from there too, do you think a family connected leader inside a project, wouldn’t be there for niceness of the President, no to control it and embezzle from it.

This here is happening while the FDC and FDC members linger in a limbo, while they are detained, house-arrested and intimidated. Not only the leadership and the headquarters, but the homes and others who has been a part of the Defiance campaign!

FDC Members Makindye 18.05.2016

With that earlier today:

“FDC party members at Makindye court to answer charges of participating in the parties defiance activities. Reports Stephen Otage” (Daily Monitor, 18.05.2016).

There will be more to come and struggle continues as the National Resistance Movement and their head honcho Museveni who will use all the tools he has to silence them as he owns no legitimacy and honest leadership, as he orders inner-party and now pay the MPs to follow instructions, as the rumoured shillings 5m to vote for Hon. Jacob Oualanya for the Deputy Speaker in Parliament. So there are something brewing and the NRM Regime thinks it is back to normal, it isn’t as the FDC are still hunted and questioned at every second; also at all stages of the political spectrum. Peace.
