Opinion: I think Yoweri is frighten of COVID-19

This is just my train of thought. There is no proof of this, but it does make sense. Yes, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is of advanced age or an elder. The President needed to abolish age limit to stand in 2021. This because he knows his ageing and we all do. However, his in the age bracket where plenty of people have fallen or died because of the Coronavirus or COVID-19. That is the reason why in the Western hemisphere the virus has hit Nursing Homes and in Long-Term Care Facility. They are in age group of the President.

That is why I he think he fears the COVID-19. His body isn’t resilient or ready for this like it is for plenty of us. I understand the fear. The man got everything to loose. The President will not only loose his life, but his whole family might suffer when he falls. There is no direct plan of succession. Still, he plans to go ahead with yet another election.

This election has been now revised twice in the Election Road Map. The second revision came today. As the “Scientific” election or Digital Campaigning will happen. That’s why its supposed to happen for Presidential Candidates between November 10th 2020 to January 8th 2021. While the Presidential and Parliamentary Polls on the 8th February 2021.

It is clear that he fears it. As there are rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in the Republic. However, with the opening of the most of society. There are some businesses and parts of transportation, which is still not back to a new normal. Still, we know plenty of ordinary actions are happening and the struggles to social distancing is overhanging issue for the Republic to struggle with.

This is why the Electoral Commission and the President to simplify this is going for digital campaigning, meaning on social media, TV, Radio and so fourth. This here is a clear message that the NRM and the President is going ahead with this.

For me that is a man worried and blatantly trying to avoid the masses. I don’t blame him as the virus is spread in groups who is close and not wearing masks. There are reasons to be worried and about how far the virus really will be spread in the community. As there is surely not a total knowledge of how big ratio of the illness is in the community. Since there hasn’t been community testing and checking of possible positive cases randomly. This is why the President is right to be aware and worry.

However, what he also does is to stop ordinary campaigning. Yes, that is a danger, but so is to go to the markets without proper cleaning of hands, sanitizers and securing the stalls. There is easily transmission there as much as it could happen at a rally. Therefore, if he keeps one open, he should be able to do the other. That only makes sense and common sense. If one isn’t deemed dangerous, but the other is. Then it seems to be put forward like that, because of the fright of possible catching the virus.

There could be venues made for smaller rallies where people could social distance and the guards could secure that the public isn’t to friendly to each other. While also giving masks in the entrances for instance and also washing stations. However, that would be hectic, but possible. However, we can feel that the President is so afraid of this illness.

If he wasn’t afraid, he would be either in Kabarole district, Ssesse Island, Abeletong district or in Kaabong. Trying to sway voters and drop of some gems to the public. Maybe revise old pledges and come with new ones as well.

The President seems worried. He seemed shocked and shook by it actually. It is an invisible enemy he cannot control and therefore. The President uses these measures to secure himself and his closest associates. Because he doesn’t want them or him to catch it too. Peace.

“Scientific” Elections with 15 new counties: These MPs are touched by the changes

The second document released today on the matter

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.

Otto Edward Makmot NRM Agogo County (Agogo West)
Stephen Kangwagye Rwakanuma NRM Bukhanga County (Bukhanga North)
John Kamara Nizeyimana NRM Bukimbiri (Bufumbira North County, Kisoro District).

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.

The first document released today…

Opinion: Nangalama forgets the grim reaper

There are one of those days, when you let your anger strike you too hard and you write something in an infuriating state. Where you mind boggles the facts and deeper understanding of the things. What the Ugandan blogger based in Canada did was very easy microwaving the message without considering the implications of it. Like, the Opposition should react, instead she said it shouldn’t campaign or shouldn’t even try create change. If she got her will, the demolition of opposition would be fixed. Mzee, Bosco or Mr. Sunday would be very happy, because people listened to Nangalama. They put down their swords and became silent like graves. 

Here is an out-take from Red Pepper, which has resurfaced on social media:

Ugandans should be demanding from their opposition leaders why their kids are being killed. Opposition leaders should not be taking the killings as political capital. They should suspend all their rallies, consultations and kwekalakasa to demand justice for the dead and imprisoned. You surely do not think we have opposition in Uganda. Here is the BIG News, there is no opposition in Uganda” (Martha Leah Nangalama – ‘People Power Movement Should Not Use Death for Cheap Political Capital’ 29.02.2020).

All of this happens because People Power Movement (PPM) are seeing their activists killed and associates being murdered. She is initially stating that Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is wrong and doing it badly.

As she started her piece like this: “Bobi Wine should sack his media team and hire a professional.  Capitalizing on the death of two young people is not my cup of tea. Those two kids are in the same age group as my kids so I fly to Toronto, Canada to capitalize on deaths!! With a poster like this. Who is gonna raise their kids? The opposition needs to learn from Gen. Mugisha Muntu” (Martha Leah Nangalama – ‘People Power Movement Should Not Use Death for Cheap Political Capital’ 29.02.2020).

It is like this have never been done before, all political movements has had their martyrs, especially the ones who fought against a junta or a miltiary dictatorship. Because, the junta will use their force, because they have no other methods of control of dissidents. That is why the opposition is so split and attacked by the authorities. All means are used against them, even killing by trying to stop the opposition from gathering or even assemble in public. This is something Nangalama knows, but doesn’t care to dig into. Maybe, that isn’t important to her?

She just want friend sheep like Mugisha Muntu, whose loved by the NRM and whose so pragmatic, that he cannot even pass a street without asking authorization by the local RDC. That is how it seems. This from the lady from ‘Peril of Africa’, the lady who always goes hard. However, here she went a bit left. Especially, if she yearns for change or more of the same?

It is like she wrote in rage, I understand and we both agree. That no one should die because of politics. Each life taken is one to much. However, the brutal reality is that the army, all security agencies and so-on use all means to shut-down the opposition. They know everything, because the opposition needs to notify and spell out their activity to the authorities. Therefore, they got no way to hide or escape the armed forces, either if they like it or not.

In that reality. She wants a compromised leader, a leader who doesn’t dare the authorities nor the structure itself. A man whose not honest in his approach to his start-up party Alliance of National Transformation (ANT). She accepts this, because, she wants that easy-picking approach. Not even use the ills against you. However, Muntu like anyone else uses burials and funerals as rally grounds for political messages, but that is cool right?

I understand her frustration, as the dead is named and put on like martyrs. No one wants to have that. No movement wants that, but when your fighting the powers to be with all their forces. They use all means to stay in power. They are not redeeming or a forgiving organization. No, they come with bullets, tear-gas and prison. This she knows, but wants them to silent and not speak up about it.

Only lay-down and die. Not speak out, not address it or continue. She wants suspensions and not civil disobedience. If you think that works, then you will give life to the Movement for a few more decades and a Muhoozi Presidency when Yoweri “calls it a day”. Because, why fight them or undress them at all?

When you want men like Muntu? Why even use time to blog or speak of the ills of society? Only when it doesn’t cost? Should the opposition suspend it all and really die? In your eyes, they are dead anyway?

I am sure Kizza Besigye and POA will disagree with that. The same will Bobi Wine, who you disagree with. There are opposition, but nearly impossible to do party work or assemble. If they do so, there is costs, there is pain and suffering. Unless, people stand up against that. The cycle of violence, arrests and misuse of power will continue. However, the stance in her piece. Isn’t creating anything positive. It is neither showing any will of stopping of it, but instead giving ways to the authorities who is sanctions this actions towards the youths who dies for their political affiliation.

Even if I believe it comes from a true place, that Nangalama means well. It doesn’t serve anyone. Except for the ANT and Muntu. Who easily speaks with everyone, but is of no concern to the State House. That is why his out there. However, the ones who is a of a concern and who creates fire is dismissed and said to lay their tools down.

How will that generate change? It will not, especially, if the ones whose new and who has the youth behind them. Suddenly, supposed to suspend their actions and be silent. Not even try to be relevant. That is reality of what she wrote. Because, of the deaths and the usage in public. The PPM and Bobi Wine should lay their tools down and not do anything.

With that sort of thinking, Bobi Wine is never winning. It is just the matter of which ways he looses. He looses if he acts and looses if he stands down. He cannot even participate without someone saying his actions are wrong.

Wonder if Nangalama thought of that? I didn’t think so. Peace.

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine: International Press Statement on the Increasing Cases of Imprisonment, Torture and Murder of People Power Supporters in Uganda (09.03.2020)

I want to bring to your attention the deteriorating human rights situation in Uganda.

President Yoweri Museveni’s regime is increasingly resorting to extreme means to silence the voice of the people of Uganda who are demanding the opportunity to end his 34 years of rule and his progressively brutal regime.

The People Power Movement is a non-violent movement. It brings together Ugandans from different political parties, professions, regions, and religious groupings to unite in peaceful protest against a military dictatorship which violently restricts any form of democratic opposition. The movement is demanding the independence of the judiciary, the police force, the army, the press as well as the Electoral Commission. We are struggling to ensure that the people of Uganda have the opportunity to decide their own future, for the first time since Uganda’s independence from colonial rule.

Anyone who associates with me has become a target for kidnap, imprisonment, torture and death at the hands of the Uganda security forces. These violent forms of intimidation are orchestrated mainly by elements serving in the Police, Internal Security Organisation – ISO, Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence- CMI, Military Police, as well as the Local Defence Unit- LDU.

On 24th February, 2020 a supporter and leader in the People Power movement was murdered when a police truck struck her in Nakawa Division, Kampala. At 8:00am, Ritah Nabukenya, who was aged 28, was a passenger on the rear seat of a motorcycle. She had just dropped her young daughters aged 6 and 4 at school. Because RITAH and her rider were dressed in ‘People Power’ attire, they were easily identified as members of the group.

The driver of the police truck swerved to hit the motorcycle and eye witnesses later confirmed to the media that the police truck had deliberately targeted Ritah.

She was pronounced dead at Mulago National Referral Hospital, and the motorcycle driver sustained injuries.

Police officers who were moving in the patrol vehicle immediately took up positions around the scene with weapons and ordered the witnesses not to take any photos or videos of the incident.

Our demands for CCTV footage from the incident have not yielded anything and the police spokesperson said that CCTV cameras were not operational at the time of the killing.

Ritah was laid to rest on 25th February, 2020. On our way back from the funeral, thousands of young people lined the roads of the various towns we passed through to express solidarity with the movement and to recognise the sacrifice that Ritah had made.

When we got to Nansana town, uniformed police officers as well as elements of the Local Defence Unit (LDU) opened fire with live rounds on the crowd which had gathered peacefully.

Dan Kyeyune, who was aged 33, was shot through the eye and died instantly. At least two other people received severe gunshot injuries. Yet again, the police claimed that the CCTV footage of the incident was unavailable.

These two murdered people are in addition to Asuman Walyendo (shot dead on 19th July, 2018 in Bugiri district), Yasin Kawuma (shot dead in Arua on 13th August, 2018), Vincent Sserugaya (shot dead on 23rd August, 2018 in Gomba), Kalende Yusuf (deliberately knocked by a police truck on 27th August, 2018 in Luwero), Hannington Ssewankambo aka Sweet Pepsi (brutalized by the military on 20th September, 2018 leading to injuries which he would succumb to in October 2019), Lukoma Stephen Ssalongo (shot dead on 7th June, 2019 in Buvuma District), Michael Kalinda aka Zigy Wyne (kidnapped and severely tortured before dying on 4th August, 2019), and Hakim Ssekamwa (deliberately knocked by a police patrol truck on 6th August, 2019). There are several other unreported cases where supporters have been abducted and murdered. In all such cases, there has been a clear lack of interest in conducting investigations by state agencies!

In addition to these extra-judicial killings by the state, security operatives have kidnapped several supporters, tortured them and subjected them to all manner of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. To date, our coordinator Johnbosco Kibalama is still missing, having been abducted in June 2019.

The general levels of repression have increased. Although the Presidential Elections Act, 2005, permits intending presidential candidates to carry out nationwide consultations ahead of nominations, police and the military have blocked me from reaching out to the people of Uganda for these lawful consultations.

We have so far made attempts to consult in eight districts and all of them have been met with extreme brutality against me and our supporters. We are not permitted to carry out any public meeting. Recently on January 31st police fired teargas and live bullets to break up a thanksgiving ceremony where I was due to speak.

Many of our supporters have been arrested and kept in prisons for days, weeks or months.

The regime has become paranoid to the extent that they are arresting people who associate with our movement even when they are not directly involved in our activities.

On 28th February, 2020 Julian Friesinger, a PhD student from Germany was arrested by military operatives in Lira District. He was arrested together with two of our coordinators who he had gone to interview for his research project. The two Ugandans (Adonyo Michael and Oguttu Nicholas) were kept in military detention for three days while being beaten. Julian whose devices (phones, laptops, etc) and passport had been confiscated was interrogated by the Internal Security Organisation, before leaving the country.

In another case, Moses Bwayo, an independent journalist and film maker was arrested alongside eight people with whom I was working on a music project. They were kept in detention for several days and are now facing charges of unlawful assembly whose particulars include singing a song subverting the government of Uganda.

Last week, more than 50 of our supporters were being held in different prisons across the country. Some of whom were arrested for merely wearing our attire. Our supporters Denis Senono (Den City) and Bobi Young were held under military detention. Whereas Bobi Young is still detained, Den City was released; his body bearing torture marks. He reported that he was injected with an unknown substance by security operatives and now lives in fear for his life.

While this is going on, President Museveni who has been in power for 34 years has been desperately moving across the country campaigning for a seventh term with sacks of tax-payers money. He is hoping that he can buy the support of a people, who he has not only impoverished but has nothing left to promise or offer to them. Those who will not be persuaded will be intimidated, tortured and even murdered.

With the political space shrinking further and the human rights situation deteriorating, the economic condition has continued to worsen. There is little provision of basic services to the citizens. The state of education and healthcare have continued to decline. The levels of unemployment as well as poverty are on a sharp increase. Corruption and misuse of public resources are at an all-time high.

The young people of Uganda continue to be excluded by the power structure whose only interest, is enriching themselves, and keeping power at whatever cost.

As we head towards the 2021 General election our demand for free and fair elections is unequivocal. We are committed to ending President Museveni’s brutal regime of blood, plunder and national shame.

We call upon the world and the international community to continue standing with the people of Uganda in these very difficult times.

We shall certainly overcome!

People Power – Our Power

Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert
“Bobi Wine”

Part II: No ballot will beat Museveni, but a revolution would

We just have to patiently wait… since there is no sense to believe that the ballot will bring down Museveni. It will not… If you thought to, sorry, but not sorry. That is how I ended the last piece on this subject and therefore, I start from where I finished off last time.

Since, there is something that need to be stated here. Is that Dr. Kizza Besigye have given the needed guidelines for a public destruction of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and a peaceful transfer of power. However, this seems still to be forgotten. Like he never did or even tried to get it across.

He called it defiance or an awaking campaign, like in July 2017 he stated this:

The following needs to be done to terminate the Junta’s control of our country:

1) Intensify the “awakening campaign”, for most Ugandans to become active in the processes of achieving a transition. Everyone has a role to play in achieving this.

2) Forming activist networks to make it possible to act together and to be coordinated.

3)Everyone seeking a democratic transition should take deliberate actions, individually or in concert with others to disempower and break down the Junta. Each one’s actions, however small, contribute significantly towards the desired change.

4) Public servants, including those in the security and military are called upon to join the struggle for democratic transition.

5) In coordination with other political and civil society formations, we’ll soon start various activities that will disempower and bring the, now fragile, Junta to an end” (Dr. Kizza Besigye, 11.07.2017).

This five points has to followed, it is a deliberate attempt of forming a people’s revolution against the government and the state. This is the action that needs to be done. Because, through the General Election of 2021. It doesn’t matter if the public are either voting for Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine or Kizza Besigye. The results will be in favour of President Museveni with a flick of his finger.

That is why, the ballot is worthless. The whole state is rigged in favour of man and his orders. There is no other way to change this. The people need to use their power, their feet and their voices. The army cannot contain them all, neither can all the police officers. All of them will be overpowered by the people, as long as they revolt and does it steadily.

They got to use their weapon of civil disobedience, their weapon isn’t compliance or trying to follow the rules. The rules are only made to stifle and hurt the voices of the public. That has been proven again and again. While Bobi Wine cannot do an consultation, neither can the FDC celebrate their 15 years. Today, Evelyn Anite could campaign with rallies in her Koboko today. The same week the President and his soldiers killed people leaving funerals in connection with the opposition leaders. That shows that these games are rigged and no mercy at all.

That is why an election is not real at this point. The public will not be listened too. The ballot is a waste, the polls are just for show and the results are just for validation of the President. There is nothing else too it.

Unless, there is a real will for change. Unless, there is a real structure and will, the status quo will continue. Unless, the state kills the wrong person, unless the state suffocates the public space to a level, which a small move will make it spark. These sort of things happens and suddenly the leadership looses control.

However, there is a need of will… that will power has to come from the public. That is a revolution. That is the will of a peaceful transition with a push to end the dictator and his regime. Unless, that happens. There will be more bloodshed, be more pain and hurt. There will be more tears and fear, more intimidation and also striking indifference to all the ones suffering. As the elite is eating, the foreign investors are looting and the armed forces are settling the score.

The only this will change is listening to the mind of Besigye. However, don’t anticipate it. They have been able to get away with it since 1986. So, the NRM seems to be able to pull it of yet another term. Unless, there is a will… Peace.

Opinion: No ballot will beat Museveni

If you’re patiently waitin’ to make it through all the hatin’

Debatin’ whether or not you can even weather the storm

As you lay on the table, they operatin’ to save you

It’s like an angel came to you, sent from the heavens above” – Eminem on 50 Cent’s – ‘Patiently Waiting’ (2003)

This here will be short and brief as possible. There are just so many ways you can say the same thing and publish similar content. However, I does this as people are gearing for voter registration and election road map for the General Election of 2021. Thinking there will be possible changes in the Republic by forcing another election.

I hate to break it to you. If you don’t know, you will know now. That President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and National Resistance Movement (NRM) cannot be beaten though elections at this point. That is impossible. It has to be godly intervention, of a demigods or simply a divine invention. Which would change government and head of state. However, we will be lucky if God intervenes and uses his will to give way to others. Nevertheless, we can pray, but don’t anticipate that he will answer us. Since he has given way to Museveni since 1986 and we just have to patiently wait.

That is why, the man whose appointed everyone since the 1980s. Who has kicked the army into gear. Who has the all the intelligence operations, configured the laws and owns the state. The President who micro-manage every single thing and deal with foreign investors. The man who runs it all through decrees and presidential handshakes. Will not be brought down by an election. He will not risk it in a fair fight. He never will, he doesn’t have the courage or the balls to do it.

He will use fear, intimidation and rig it to oblivion. The NRM, the government of Uganda and Museveni. Will spend money on the elections like it is no tomorrow. Pay off friends, enemies and even some foreign strangers, to legitimize and secure another term. There will be usage of all tricks within electoral malpractices. There will be extensive force against dissidents and civilians who dares to stop him. They will face the brutality and force, which should be used to enemies, which would plan to invade the Republic. Instead it is used against their own, as they are not loyal to the President and his cause. Himself.

The ballots will be boiled, cooked, screwed and manipulated. No matter who you vote for, it will be configured to fit the narrative that the President needs. He will have the Parliamentary majority. He will have a big win over the other presidential candidates. All of them will fall like dominoes.

The numbers will not make sense, the voter registry and the Return Form for Declaration of Results. Which will be differing from polling stations and the final results of any given district. As there is never any clear guidance and the sense of it all, as the gerrymandering and the curving out districts out of sub-counties will create even more a headache of how its supposed to be.

This is all made to ensure the President and his men. The royal court and his loyalists buddies, will all be greatly provided for and secure a seat at court. There is no way in hell, that anyone will kick him out. Unless, the army goes against him and get tired of paid cents on the dollar. That they are tired of killing their own, silencing and intimidating their neighbours. Because, at some point the generals, the lieutenants and everyone else will act on a righteous cause.

We just have to patiently wait… since there is no sense to believe that the ballot will bring down Museveni. It will not… If you thought to, sorry, but not sorry. Peace.

Uganda Police Force: Police Investigating Murder by Shooting in Nansana (26.02.2020)

One funeral become[s] another one[two]

Yesterday, it was the People Power supporter Ritah Nabukenya. Today its People Power supporter Daniel Kyenye. This story continues and this is depressing. What is the worst about this is that it’s not new from the authorities. The state has done this before elections before and does it again It is just a new label on the opposition, but the same citizens taken out for standing behind another banner than the one of the government. They are not on the bus, they participate in the politics of the opposition and they loose their lives doing so. Surely, what the NRA historicals went for the Bush for… right? Didn’t think. This blood is on your hands. Just like all the rest of the lives taken since you took power.

Yesterday it was conflicting stories on how she was knocked down. The Police Force claims it was collision between two motorcycles, while the People Power says it was a Police vehicle trailing her and did the knocking, which killed her.

Today, the Local Defence Unit (LDU) had a trigger happy fellow who dispersed the crowds in Nansana. They killed Daniel Kyenye there. It was after LDUs and Police Force did what they could to scatter the crowds after the funeral. Today, it is also reported one more too, but not named or identified yet. Also a third person fighting the life at a hospital.

This is all happening in association with gatherings where the People Power Movement are appearing. As the security organizations are attacking and using extensive force to control the affairs. They do that with force, with all will and use all means. Tear-gas, live-bullets and shed no tears of the lost. They make up stories and pin blame on everyone around them. That is what they do and known for doing so.

Its sad that it has come to this. That the authorities are using these means to attack. Silence and get rid of dissidents. This is just citizens affiliated with the new pressure group. Just like people lost their lives for associating them with Go Forward before the 2016 General Elections.

This is just tragic. Loosing their lives for being participate in politics. This is injustice and impunity in action. Lives are worthless to the authorities. They certainly doesn’t act like they value it or care for them. Instead, it is easy to get rid of them. Peace.

Uganda Police Force: Additional Statement surrounding the Fatal Accident involving Two Bodaboda Motorcycles (25.02.2020)

Opinion: When the innocent dies like Ritah … there will be no answers.

The demise of Ritah Nabukenya is another tragic story. As the People Power activist died as she planned to go to the venue of Pope Paul Memorial Hotel in Kampala. The Police Force has one story of her crashing on her boda-boda with another boda-boda. While People Power claimed one of their own patrol vehicle knocked the activist down. The last story isn’t new, as this has happen before when convoys of opposition leaders has passed in a metropolitan area. However, the authorities are dismissing that today.

There is also some reports that the Police Vehicle was following her on the motorcycle and stumbled on her twice. Before leaving her. Then, someone else took her from Rubaga division of Kampala to Mulago Hospital where they pronounced her dead. Therefore, it is a tragic affair no matter what.

This is yet another dying in unfortunate circumstances, because the person chooses side politically and plans to be part of political meetings. This is not the first nor the last People Power associate who will go down like this. Because, into campaign season, the dissidents usually get harsh treatment from the authorities. Yet another proof of that today with another innocent civilian taken out.

This time it was Ritah. Tomorrow might be someone else. We will not get the answers nor the verdict on this one. Just like there was never any follow-up on Ziggy Wine either. This is just another citizen dead, who the security agencies didn’t care for. Peace.
