Opinion: If you can silence Museveni’s Guns, then you have a shot for succession!

There is a very obvious reason, why President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is going on a Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) Tour of late. That is to show his force, his power and his army. As long as the President has his army, has his security organizations like ISO, CMI, Flying Squad and the Special Force Command. Now even the LDUs and possible Crime Preventers. The President has so many outfits fighting his battles and defending him. He don’t have to care about the ballot or the will of the people. He has soldiers, spies and police officers fighting his battles anyway.

So, for the ones believing in the ballot, believing that the man of 1986 coup d’etat and never leaving the office. Will leave peaceful, because he suddenly overnight lost to Bobi Wine or Kizza Besigye. Better be smoking or drinking hard, it must be liquid courage, because it is not bloody brilliant. More mere ignorance of who they are fighting.

The President uses all means to stay in power. The ones he cannot compromise or pay-off, he challenge and intimidate, the ones he cannot sensitize and the ones he cannot convert. He kills off and silence. The ones that knows to much and been in to close relations will be kept on payroll, even if they got nothing in government to do. The same with former comrades who needs a pay-check even if their time is over. That is just the way it is.

The President will do whatever to stay in power. Making insults against him criminal, making staging rallies in the same area as him as crime. Making posters on top his a crime. Everything at opposes him is a felony and you will pay for doing so. It is just a matter of time, before you get apprehended and taken care off.

Therefore, the ones believing that the President are playing democracy and would initiate a transition. Is believing in their own juices and the own air their breathing. Because, that is far from reality.

The only way to get rid of Museveni is either by natural death. May, the almighty answer the prayers of plenty who has been suffering during his three decades and leave them be. Alas, it is up to God to know when he is soul is leaving his body. The only other way, except natural death is to do something as special as silencing his GUNS.

That is why he is so militarized. This is the only thing he got, that he does well. The only thing that he can command and actually follows every single word. The President control of the army, the security organizations and the intelligence operations. Are the reason for his steady control of the Republic. So, if someone takes that away from him. Then there is hope. Either a Popular Uprising, at levels where the whole state stagnates and stops functioning. Because, the public is demonstrating so heavy, barricading roads and closing the civil service. That the President and his administration have to step down.

The other way, which is in similar fashion. Is to get the Police, Army and other Security Outfits to do a mutiny, to lay down the weapons or decide to not follow his orders. That they are standing down. They are rebelling and becoming mutineers. That they are standing up for the public and helping to topple and control the government, by using the manners and techniques learned while being part of army, police and other security outfits.

Therefore, the need to SILENCE the GUNS. By any means. That is where the power of Museveni are and has been. Ever since he went to the Bush. His safe-guard, his partner and friend in crime and passion. Has been the gun, the rifle, the ammunition and the guerrilla warfare. That is what has been his staple, been his meal-ticket and his way of getting the Republic under his spell. Using enough of the weapons to silence them all. Fear and respect him, because he got the weapons and if you don’t follow him. You will be dealt with.

So, for you who believes in the ballot, trust me the bullet is his friend. He only ushered in the ballot, to get funding and loans, legitimacy and get great alliances with foreign forces, which could strengthen his grip. Something it has with training of the military, the ones assigned in foreign missions and even imports of army equipment. All, because of the steady need for ballots. Even, if all along, the only measure needed and his loyal weapon.

The GUNS would be there to save the day. The GUNS would there to save tomorrow and beyond. Peace.

Opinion: Bobi Wine throws a grenade into the 2021 elections!

For a leader to say a vote can never oust Museveni without offering a solution is disappointing. We believe in democracy and it should not depend on us but on people. What politicians can not solve, the people of Uganda can solve, they should continue to register as voters and be many” (…) “Don’t talk about democracy and stand four times and on the fifth time you say it doesn’t work, we believe it works” (…) “We have spent two years organising our people and we think now there’s strong competence to regain the control of the country. Apart from the ordinary people being organised, we need better organisation as political leaders. We need to be synchronised, coordinated to achieve what’s needed to be achieved, focused on where the problem lies…There has been some uncoordinated movements sometimes. This year is to make sure this is kept in the past and we move as a purposeful pro democratic force” – Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine on 4th April 2019 on the Launch of the Democratic Party Block or the Memorandum of Understanding between Democratic Party and Peoples Development Party and Social Democratic Party.

There are today signs, that Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine are imagine himself in the likes of DP’s Norbert Mao, PDP Abed Bwanika, SDP Michael Mabike, also with the ANT’s leader Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu and also JEEMA’s Asuman Basalirwa. It shows the friends of the rising star on the political spectrum. However, while he is speaking with peace, he is at the same time throwing grenades into the field of Opposition. Targeting directly FDC’s Dr. Kizza Besigye. That is shown today at Hotel Africana.

What Bobi Wine is showing today?

Partly, a bit of political naivety, a bit of ignorance and secondly, also a bit self-righteousness. Which all I will explain. Because, it is fine and dandy, that all these parties want to show an agreement to work together. That is fine for them. They can collectively achieve, what they think they will achieve. As the PDP, SDP, JEEMA and DP haven’t been boasting big of late. That JEEMA got an MP, their own Party President is good, but not a giant victory. Neither is the MPs won by the DP itself. PDP is one-man band cannot be seen as viable organization. Last, ANT of Muntu is just established and registered after a prolonged consultation period and mix of underlying needs, which haven’t been publicly specified.

Alas, if they think DP Block will be powerful and able to topple Museveni. They should look into the Inter-Party Cooperation (IPC) of 2011 and The Democratic Alliance of 2015. Alas, these sort of projects should be gone, because they are not strengthening the Opposition, but weakening it instead. However, I wish them good luck on their endeavours. Surely, Bobi Wine should take pictures of more books to learn from the past. This is the little notice on his political naivety.

On ignorance is on his attack of Besigye. As does he think Kizza Besigye would have run if his party didn’t send delegates to pick him? Does the politician himself, think Besigye would been on the ballot this many times if there was no internal political discourse within the FDC and established his candidacy? Isn’t that, why he believes in Democracy, because the FDC party has elected him to be their Presidential Flag-bearer?

However, in this regard, the man who has not aligned with any party before or been built an organization with a protocol. Shouldn’t he study that first, too? Shouldn’t Bobi Wine understand, why Norbert Mao can run again on his third stint? He couldn’t run last time, but would have if they allowed him. Is that Democratic, then? Secondly is democratic that Bwanika has run for President since 2006 on his own ticket? Again and again, believing that his church and Party would blow the Republic away. But it never did.

So, Bobi Wine should look around his own and what they been doing before throwing grenades at the FDC and Besigye. Surely, the DP Block will be no more than fling. A tiny fire with hope like the TDA for Amama Mbabazi. Because, nothing will topple Museveni at this point. As long as there is elections with Museveni on the ballot. There will be no peaceful transition. The last time he lost, he went to the bush and since taking power. There been no cheap-shot of a peaceful transition happening in the Republic.

Therefore, I don’t believe Bobi Wine, any Opposition Coalition or Joint Candidates can beat Museveni and the National Resistance Movement (NRM). For the simple reason, the President lingers and secures his allies places. While, he will intimidate, rig and do whatever it take to own the Crown. There is no democracy in that sense. He let the Opposition and the others win some bread-crumbs to look like it. But, still, there is like war-zones and planned interference in the By-Elections, that makes them more violent and sinister, than it needs to be.

Nevertheless, the hope for a better future, the hope for a transition is good and needed. But it is a false-flag right now. That a man who at the same moment claiming that he wants UNITY is still throwing grenades at the biggest Opposition Party. That shows that the UNITY isn’t that UNITED. It is just partly united and not in all sense. This is why the leader and the one whose been standing in the battle. Getting thrown under the bus. Because, why not right?

If it had been a democracy, been a righteous and fair elections. Than, the elections of 2015, 2011, 2006, 2001 and 1996 would have looked differently. Even by this time, the President wouldn’t have been the same over that time. It would have shifted. Also, the FDC has changed their Party President. Something, certain other parties that Bobi Wine is aligned to hasn’t done since its inception. The DP have changed, but the rest are Parties of One-Men Bands who are existing because of them and might be gone, when they have left the building too.

So, it is self-righteous of Bobi Wine, that is what is today. Instead of taking the high-road and such. He sounds more like Mao rip-off and its weak tea. Bobi Wine should know better, but apparently he don’t. I don’t know what got into him, but surely his showing his blazing glory. That his message and memo to the rest.

That he has utter faith in the Electoral Commission, that the appointed men of Museveni, the Security Apparatus and everyone else. Will obey the codes of law and pass over to the DP Block, because of their UNITY will be able to Topple Museveni. Sorry brother, but you got to be kidding me.

That is even worse than Kiggundu math. Get back to the drawing board and re-invent magic. Because, that doesn’t add up. Maybe, Bobi Wine has some love-potion or something to beat the Elections his way. Since, it doesn’t seem so to me. Peace.

Bobi Wine Blocked Again: Kyarenga Extra Concert in Gulu stopped!

Today, again the Uganda Police Force has blocked another Concert, which the Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine from doing on the 2nd December 2018 in Gulu. This is not the first time he has been blocked. It is very common for the Police to block the opposition and their leaders.

This is just a long run of impunity… it is tradition and not surprised, especially considering the Trial Date for the Treason Charge and the Election Violence case on the 3rd December 2018 at the Gulu Magistrate Court tomorrow. Even if that wouldn’t happen, the Police would block it as it is troubling to see a figure of the stature of Bobi Wine come to town. They surely used the Public Order Management Act and to secure the public, but this was within one venue that was notified in the 4th November 2018 and suddenly closed off. The day that the concert was supposed to happen.

Bobi Wine’s statement:

So yet again, our concert in Gulu has been blocked by the police! We wrote to them three weeks ago informing them of the show and requested them for security. We compiled with all the laws and invested a lot of resources preparing for the show. Today, the police showed up at the venue cutting all banners and other advertising material without giving any explanation. Police patrol vehicles have been moving around Gulu town, removing all the banners and posters! The promoters have been trying to call all responsible officers, and all they say is that they have ‘orders from above’ not to let me perform. Dear brothers and sisters in Gulu, I was looking forward to having a good time with you tonight. Very soon it will be possible. I know that God willing, one day, we shall free ourselves from this mess and be able to enjoy ourselves in the new Uganda. In the meantime, we shall stop at nothing in challenging this kind of injustice and gross violation of rights. We shall communicate to the nation about our next step. Tomorrow we shall be at Gulu High Court at 9:00am, concerning the tramped up charges from the Arua incident” (Bobi Wine, 02.12.2018).

This side of story is sadly to common. If your someone who the authorities and the government sees as a threat. You will be under fire, struggle to do your business and operate as a political party or entity. The ones who are the opposition will be in trouble. As shown with plenty within the Democratic Party, Forum for Democratic Change and Independents. Right now, Bobi Wine is an arch-nemesis on the line of Dr. Kizza Besigye. The only thing missing right now is that Bobi Wine are getting house-arrested like him.

We are seeing, what we have seen before. This is currently the attitude of the police and the NRM regime. Who are attacking their rights to assemble and even stopping their livelihood. When concerning Bobi Wine, it is stopping his musical career and his concerts. He was able to pull of the album launch. Only when he fixed it on his own plot on One Love Beach. Before that, the authorities was blocking him and made change dates.

For Bobi Wine he is starting to feel it and that is showing what troubles that is ahead. They will not make it easy for him. The authorities will clearly make life hard for him. Bobi Wine are now one of the targets of the state. His People Power message is scaring the government and the President. It hits a nerve at a tired public of the 32 years and counting. They are not the automatically loyal subjects of the President or his Movement. Even if that is what the President wishes. Peace.

The letter notifying the authorities:

Mzee’s answer to everything: Bring out the Guns!

There is something magical, something so magnificent and unique. That every time there is a problem, the BIG GUNS have to show up. The President, the Almighty, His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has to address the problem with hiring, appointing or ordering the military to intervene. They even have a commercial arm to assemble cellphones in the near future.

The army is already involved in the NAADS and SACCOs as well as other Operation Wealth Creation (OWC) projects. They have been involved in arresting people and disrupting rallies, not to talk about pure election violence. The army has been involved in invading the Plenary Chambers of the Parliament. There is nowhere the army and these branches of it isn’t touching.

If there is a problem. The President orders the Special Forces Command to monitor riots in Kampala. The President orders to combat army-worms and pipeline problems together with the KCCA. This is just mere simple example of the usage of the army.

The President when the Members of Parliament asked for more security, he ordered sharpshooters and specialized cars for the MPs to security their movements and travels. It was later turned down, but the way of the President to resolve the matter, was by getting the soldiers on stand-by and secure the VIPs.

This is how the President moves, now that Chinese Investors are afraid. The President has ordered soldiers to facilitate and secure the Chinese investments and investors themselves. The answer isn’t looking into the ruthless and insecurity. Instead, put out more guns in the field. Thinking they will solve the issue.

This is the militarism of the President. Where he sends the para-military Police Squads against oppositions. Where he had the Flying Squad, the Special Force Command, Crime Preventers, the Internal Security Organization (ISO) and the Chieftain of Military Intelligence (CMI) or even foot soldiers on the streets. Just to prove to the people, that he is boss!

That is just a sign of the lack of progress, the lack of development. When every crisis, when every need and whim of the President. The ones he is calling is the military and the soldiers, not trying to figure out the needed remedy. That gravy-train has left.

It is time to ask the President is if he has other advice and other solutions, because calling the soldiers to fix defects in society isn’t their role. Their role is to guard the borders and secure the Republic, not being the waiters and dancers at the party. That is how they are playing today. I am just awaiting seeing pictures of soldiers dropping off Waragin and Beer to VIPs. Because that is the only thing they isn’t doing. Since it isn’t long ago, when they even was in charge of a Beauty Pageant. Peace.

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s Message after the successful Kyarenga Concert Yesterday (11.11.2018)

What a day, What a Night, What a Show! THANK YOU to the thousands of friends, supporters and fans who came down to One Love Beach Busabala last night for the #KyarengaConcert. Abaana ba Uganda mwena, I cannot thank you enough for the massive show of support and solidarity. What a night!!! Not only did you show up in record numbers, the vibe was so good. You lit the fire and kept it burning. Thank you for dancing to the songs of freedom. I enjoyed every bit of the night, and it was evident you guys had fun too. I was captivated by your sense of purpose, resilience and determination for a better Uganda. Your faces were all beaming with hope and aspiration even as we danced and sang. I want to send a special thank you to my fellow artistes who made the show even more colourful. Mwe musinga baana ba Taata. Lazima if we all do our part, and God being on our side, olutalo nga luwedde tuliyambala engule mu Uganda empya!

Kenyan MP Babu Owino banned from Uganda: Planning to attend Bobi Wine’s Concert is the reason!

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni are getting more and more touchy with age. He has less and less flex too. That is why the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a Memo has said that the Kenyan MP Babu Owino is Person Non Grata in the Republic of Uganda.

In the Law Dictionary that means: “Latin for a person not welcome; an undesirable, unwelcome or unwanted person”.

So we clearly see the intent of the Republic, as they want to ensure the concert of Bobi Wine tomorrow doesn’t have a high-profiled foreign guests. Expect more nonsense. As tomorrows concert will not go down without any drama. There has been plenty already and expect more, because Museveni is a whiny little cadre, who has to use force and bullets. He cannot establish a pattern of trust nor of betterment of the Republic.

That is why Owino isn’t allowed into Uganda for the purpose of attending the Concert and Album Launch. Because that would enforce and also show strength to the cause of Bobi Wine. That is something Museveni cannot see, Museveni can have over Deputy President William Ruto. But not let the minions grow stronger. That is not acceptable. They are supposed to shielded and follow his command. Not create their own stage and their livelihoods. That is not how the Republic works under Museveni. No, no and no.

Owino is a lost cause here, he could have been a beneficiary and a foreign supporter. Instead he will not be able to attend and surely will be left at the airport or at the border-crossing. Where he will be told and direct back to Kenya. Because, the patrols and the Security Forces will follow the command from above high.

So, if someone is afraid of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. It is clearly the state, as they are making all the ones in association with person non grata. Just like they didn’t allow his foreign attorney to represent him after the torturing and arrests post Arua By-Election. It all fits a pattern and it is not beautiful, but a masterpiece of oppression. Peace.

#SecurityUG: My take as nearly all Security Organizations are doing Police Work!

In this present state, we can start to question the safety of the public, not only that the Gen. David Muhoozi, the CDF of Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) thinks it is all cool; that the UPDF or the Army are investigating and arresting people. This is happening as the Internal Security Organization are doing the same. While the Flying Squad of the Police Force have sacked their Operatives and the Crime Preventers have become Reserve Army. While Boda Boda 2010 have been disbanded and Kiatta’s fate is all in limbo still.

We can certainly see the fluid situation, as the Flying Squad, the Chieftain of Military Intelligence (CMI), ISO, UPDF and Police Force are all directly trying to address the same problems in society. Even when needed, the President comes to scatter crime scenes and orders the Special Force Command (SFC) to tdo their thing.

Clearly, this is all should send the memo. That there are many cooks, many orders and units, but few who cooks perfectly. Because there are so many chefs, but so little output. Maybe that is the point to, as this is not the whole spectrum, but a big part of the Security Organizations involved.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) and the President have built this system. We know it is messed up and that is because he has arranged it like this. Made a dozens outfits, possible to combat various intrusions and whatnot’s, but goblins doesn’t just appear from the thin-air. So, they got to do something.

That is why suddenly the UPDF are implicated in Police work, the Crime Preventers was too, but now are in the shadows, the Flying Squad was around flexing muscle, the CMI attacking and detaining people without warrants, but the Police Force was preoccupied following and monitoring opposition politicians. That is just the way things are and is, apparently, not to forget SFC was both doing political ambushes, also following President direct order to assault and detain politicians without any other reason. That they are in the near facility of his highness.

It is sad that all questions revolves around the President, even with the personal changes of new IGP or new CDF. The situation isn’t strengthening or becoming better, it is more of the same. Political prisoners kept long without trial like Dr. Stella Nyanzi. There are other too, but she is the biggest catch of the month. There are nothing happening with Sam Mugumya in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Therefore, the security with murders, assassinations and arrests, without the violence stopping. The salvos of attacks on the streets from CMI, shows the brilliance of the police brutality to whole world. It was broadcast from the street of Kampala.

Therefore, as the Flying Squad is demoted, the Boda Boda 2010 is too, the CMI acting out, the SFC wilding out and the list goes on. We can wonder what will be up, but there is nothing that is promising for a better security situation, as it has deteriorating a bit. Also, the lack of action and promise that is profound. The NRM and the President knows this, but just patching the hurt. They are not healing wounds or even closing the unanswered cases. As with time there are opening new cases and they move on. Even as the victims and their families are left astray, by all the organizations that is supposed to protect them and defend them. Peace.

Uganda Police Force letter to Kampala Metropolitan Police – “Re: Request for Security for Kyarenga Concert on 10th November, 2018 at One Love Beach Busabala (30.10.2018)

Uganda Police Force – Ref: Cancellation of Kyarenga Concert (30.10.2018)

Third Time the Charm: Kyarenga Album Launch at Busabaala beach, but what tricks will they use now?

That Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the Kyadondo East MP who has tried twice to launch the Kyarenga Album at the Namboole Stadium. He has twice signed an agreement with the Stadium Management, before they at a later date has to reschedule the event or even scrap it. Because of pressure from the Uganda Police Force or pressure on the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) so they would not open the gates for a concert for the crafty opposition politician. The one that has shown popularity and that his message has garned attention, that the President cannot contain.

So now that it has been postponed twice. For various of reasons, but most likely because Bosco and his henchmen think they are clever. He had to switch location, however there turns and tricks for the state to dissolve this one too. They have suction everywhere and they can be used in times of need. Especially, when the possible public would show up for the event on the 10th of November 2018. By that time, there might a curfew on the Kampala – Entebbe Expressway. There will be roadblocks and the Police will re-issue the Public Order Management Act (POMA). Also, use strict regulations and has to have an agreement like the MTN Nyege Nyege Festival in Jinja earlier in the year.

We know, that the National Resistance Movement, the Police Force and all the circles around the President are like vultures around the men who oppose. They all want to show loyalty and show their tokens of appreciation of the masters in power.

That is why expect that something happens in Kibiri, the Catholic’s will shun the event and ask for favors. If not the Kaazi Scout National Ground as the neighbor of the Beach. If not some sort of Uganda National Road Authority (UNRA) upgrade of the Busabaala Road to Munyonyo from the Expressway to the Munyonyo Martyrs’ Shrine. That would just be a-typical of this regime. That is just what they do.

If not Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga are ordered by the King to ask for more money for the lease from the MP, if not they will close the deal and arrangement of the beach.

Know that non of this is active yet, but this state use all methods to silence opposition and the voices who gain popularity outside of the cronies and elites of the President. They are shunned and stopped, this has been seen with Bobi Wine already more than once. He is now getting the issues Besigye has to do things. Without meeting the Police Force or even the army. The Special Force Command and other units might barricade the whole beach and areas, because of intelligence of possible terrorist striking the beach. Who knows, but these people have no nerve, silencing the people who are not on their team.

Bobi Wine was smart to move it to his land and his venue. It wasn’t his garden in Wakiso District, but at another venue closer to home and not owned by a public entity. Even if the 6 acres are leased from Mengo. Clearly, this can have implication combined with the roads to the shrine and possible lackluster misuse of power. That the authorities are doing in this situations. Expect nothing else.

I believe something stupid will appear, as these people shun not tactics to harm the ones who are in their way. Peace.
