Opinion: Lt. Col. Nakalema aim wrong with her 4th December march

Lt. Colonel Edith Nakalema has today launched the first public march sponsored by the outfit she’s running. That will be a state owned march on the 4th December 2019 with the special guest, His Excellency, the Fountain of Honour, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

What is really colourful about this enterprise is the message and the slogan of it all. That is the beautiful wording of “A Corruption-Free Uganda: It Starts With Me”. It is really rich coming from the State House. Really ironic and special, that the unique Anti-Corruption Unit of the State House are usually catching the small fishes, but not touching the kitchen cabinet nor anyone in close association with the President.

That’s why its very rich of the State House and its outfit to have a theme like this. Like the people don’t know whose doing it and whose letting the grand corruption happen. The President has even accepted the Presidential Handshake. He has accepted that businesses get started, get tax-holidays as long as he gets kickbacks. Not like he will let any opportunity of a short-sighted funds go away. Even if it means selling the most prominent building in Kampala, Mabira Forest or anything else. As long as he can get something out of a deal, he will do it eventually.

President Museveni and his handlers will secure that, that’s why his not touched, even with abundance of agencies combatting and securing the government tenders, procurement and budget. However, none of them have ever had the capacity to arrest or charge Amama Mbabazi, Sam Kuteesa, Kahinda Otafiire, Elly Tumwiine and so-on. They are all living lavish, but came out of the bush-war piss-poor. You go figure how their wealth got started.

With this all in mind, the theme should be rewrote, “It Starts with the President”. That would have been accurate. It would have targeted the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and their cronies. Instead, they go after the chicken-thieves and the ones that has no power, no suction or connection within the deep administration. The ones who are rightfully wrong in their actions, misusing local government tenders, creating ghost teachers and whatnot. Still, the biggest culprits, the ones who does it on large scale, the ones who has made and forged the system. They are walking beside the President, they are appointed by him and are untouchables.

That’s why, if the Anti Corruption Unit was sincere, they would have targeted not “me” but the President, Museveni himself. But she did so, she wouldn’t see another day in her office. So, we do understand. She doesn’t want to bite the hand that feed her. We all get that, but if they wanted to be honest. The aim should be at the King, then you best not miss. Peace.

Opinion: Otafiire better line-up a viable argument next time

I have heard all this noise about People Power, which power do you represent, where all these people? The one we know is the LC 1 Chairperson, People Power is exercised by LC1 chairpersons through the ballot box and we will guard this power using the army and air force. Whoever tries to disrupt this power, you are welcome but what will come next don’t regret”Kahinda Otafiire on the 28th October 2019

First and foremost, it is rich and funny that the Minister of Justice Kahinda Otafiire speaks of the value of the ballot box in concern of the LC1 Chairperson elections of 2018 wasn’t done through the secret ballot, but through the art of peer pressure or should I say by lining up behind the one the village or town wanted to have to represent themselves. Therefore, the Honourable clearly have forgotten how the state and the Electoral Commission did their work in 60800 villages last year.

Secondly, that he will guard the lining up of villagers for an election is showing that the backwardness of the National Resistance Movement (NRM). Instead of moving forward and doing elections with secret ballots, the Minister of Justice wants to defend the ideal of school-yard picking football captains in the villages. He will go so far to send the army against the ones going against that. That is loyalty towards the President and his self-styled President for life.

Well, thirdly, the Minister of Justice really thinks his smart, but I have already destroyed his arguments before he started. Because, the People Power is the power of the people. That they are stronger together and has the initial power of the government. Because the government is supposed to represent the people. As they are representatives of the people. Therefore, it is rich that that army has to defend that and not defend the people from enemies invading the territory of the people.

That is why you know the former NRA fighter and for life loyalist of Museveni sounds like this. His trying to sound wise, but instead sounds stupid. He sounds ignorant and dumb. That is a feat in itself.

But we can never take away this from him: “I can’t be a Minister for Crocodiles” and in the same regard. He cannot be the Minister for a Good Memory either. Peace.

Uganda: Letter to Dr. Rose N. Lukwago – Interdiction from Exercising the duties and functions of your office (11.10.2019)

Opinion: New strict campaign finance limits in the new Electoral Reforms…

I got to go at this law one more time, as there is one more consequential thing in it, that cannot be understated. This is real worry, because, this really limits the reach for the candidates, as they have to prepare in advance all the funds and everything before the elections. They have only two weeks to declare how they have raised funds, by whom and also the amount to able to campaign.

That is vital information, as this limits indirectly, the reach of the opposition and their campaigns. This should also stop the National Resistance Movement (NRM) from finding new funds, new money to suddenly have gifts, voter tourism and whatnot, which they didn’t announce two weeks after the nomination.

Take a look!

Section 22:

“(1b) candidate shall declare to the commission, within fourteen days after nomination day, the source of funds for financing his or her election.

“(4) (a) A candidate or candidate’s agent shall not- obtain, solicit or receive any financial or other assistance from any foreign Government, institution, body or person which or who has demonstrated an intention to overthrow the lawfully established Government of Uganda, or to endanger the security of Uganda;

(b) obtain, solicit or receive any financial or other assistance from an organisation which has been declared a terrorist organisation under the Anti-Terrorism Act, 2002” (Presidential Elections (Amendment) Bill, 2019).

The law is also scary vague on key components like the issue of financial or other assistance from foreign government, institution, body or person, whose intention is to overthrow a legal established Government of Uganda. This means, any sort of organization, whose funding is foreign and who works with governance could get into trouble to finance NGOs and others, which implies in a Multi-Party Democracy, that someone else than the incumbents should actually have the possibility to win. Alas, we know, in an Ugandan election that is impossible. Because, the House always WINS, sort of like the rigged Casinos.

This amendment is clearly stifling the ideas like we saw in the previous election, where the citizens gave gifts and donations all along, as Kizza Besigye travelled across the Republic to give small donations here and there. Clearly, because, the NRM and their allies want to underscore and know how much they have on the books and verify their sources. Since, we know, they will not tell how much of the State House budget, the OPM or others goes directly to the President and his team of associates. No, they will make a way to be the smooth operator, but this law is get more strings attached to the opposition.

By all means, no political party or candidate should be used a foreign party to intervene or to overthrow an government, neither should money or funding play into it. That is fine, but that the Electoral Commission needs to know 14 days after the nomination, are really limiting the scope for fundraising, especially with all the conditions put into play.

The rest of the law is straight forward and understandable by all accounts, it is a measure to secure where the funding is from and not laundering money from unsolicited sources, which can be connected to terrorism and other illegal activity, which is fine. That shouldn’t be the case anyway.

But it’s the rest that put real strains on a campaign and ensures, that the candidates have to have a vault of funds to able to campaign and be running in 2021. That is if this goes through parliament and becomes actual law. Peace.

Opinion: Are the electoral amendments a way of outlawing NRM’s own “Independent” MPs?

Well, the first initial reports of the Presidential Elections (Amendment) Bill of 2019 wasn’t accurate, the rumours and speculations wasn’t all truthful. Who knows who leaked it like that and for what reason. That is up to TVO to conspire and show the paperwork off. That is his dish to serve and he does it with such skills.

Alas, this piece will be about independents candidates and their eligibility as candidates. Because, that was also important in the leaks and also the associations between organizations/pressure groups and party members. There are still legal boundaries to this, but now more restrictions, than in the past. Just take a look.

9A. Eligibility to stand as independent candidate.

(1) A person is eligible to stand for election as an independent if that person is not a member of a registered political party or organisation having ceased to be a member of a political party or organisation twelve months before nomination day; or having never been registered as a member of a political party or organisation.

(2) An independent candidate shall be taken to have ceased to be a member of a political party or organisation under subsection (1) (a), if that person has complied with the constitution, rules and regulations of the political party or organisation to which he or she belonged, that relate to cessation of membership of that political party or organisation and was discharged by the political party or organisation.” (Presidential Elections (Amendment) Bill, 2019).

Well, this is straight forward, but this outlawing a practice, which has been done in most parties of late. Most notably in the National Resistance Movement (NRM) where the incumbent loser in any given district or county, have re-run as independent candidates, even while being members of the party. There was even meetings with about 20 Incumbent MPs who lost their Primaries in 2015 at the State House mid-December 2015 ahead of the 2016. Surely, there was also some more who ran on their own accord after losing their primaries earlier in the year. There was also a rise in the amount of Independent MPs in the 10th Parliament. This means, that this method will not be allowed from neither the UPC, DP, FDC or the NRM for that matter. Especially,as the NRM as they have had the most these type of candidates in the previous election.

What this also does, limits and restricts the Independents, meaning if they are Independent. They are not even running under an organization. This means, that possibly, running as independent while being part of People Power. Would be impossible, that is if I understand it correctly. That means, someone running for People Power or for Go-Forward in the previous election. Would have to be registered as member and therefore, not really independent. But aligned to the organization or the party. That would limit the ability for certain individuals.

The original law from 2005 stated only this for any candidate:

9. Sponsorship of candidates by political organisation or political party

Under the multiparty political system, nomination of candidates may be made by a registered political organisation or political party sponsoring a candidate or by a candidate standing for election as an independent candidate without being sponsored by a political organisation or political party” (Presidential Election Act 2005).

Clearly, that law was more liberal, more free and gave way to more various of ways into parliament or into public office. However, this is now showing that the NRM wants stop their own practice and also make the road to the 11th Parliament harder. Even for the guy himself inflicting this law. Who did use this method, the Minister of Justice Gen. Kahinda Otafiire ran as an Independent Candidate after losing the NRM Primaries. He lost twice, but got the Ministry still, because his one of the loyal subjects of the President.

Nevertheless, expect this to have ramifications. As this law is limiting the people running for Parliament. Unless, the NRM Primaries and others are held 13 months ahead of the up-coming elections. Also, that is if the Electoral Commission allows the parties to hold the Primaries early. Because something got to give. Peace.

Opinion: Bosco’s weird arguments for blocking public gatherings!

Well, its been a while since the President have addressed the public. Maybe, after meeting the diplomats from European Union at the State House of Entebbe. They told the old man with the hat, that he should try to sway public opinion about the acts of the Police Force and Army, which is used as tools to shutdown the Opposition. The President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni trying to defend the acts of the authorities, isn’t surprising, they are doing his bidding. I will not dissect the whole article published today, but just the vital parts in my opinion. Because lots of is his own self-praising, that he does at every opportunity he have. It is just his M.O at this point.

If you want to hold a public meeting (olu kungana) or a procession (ekivulu) for a legitimate reason, you should liaise with the Police, so that your public meeting or your procession does not endanger the lives of other Ugandans or the safety of their property. You agree with the Police on the route, if it involves a procession, or the venue if it is an event or a rally. The problem we have with some elements of the opposition is that they ignore this. They want to hold meetings or processions near markets or through crowded streets. This one we cannot allow” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 05.05.2019).

What is weird about this argument is that he thinks the public is so ignorant and so blind to the activity of the opposition. Especially, the consideration of the applications and notifications of all public rallies, all ones done by the opposition. They have complied, but still the Police Force have blocked it. If it is concerts of Kyarenga Extra of Bobi Wine or any rally in any district by the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC). The notification and even the paying the stadiums and town gardens are blocked by the Police Force, even before it is starting. So, we know the state is not allowing the gathering of the FDC or real opposition by all means. Not for safety, but because they challenge Bosco. So, his issues are also backfiring. As the government party and ruling regime are allowed to do processions without any issues or public gathering where-ever it fits, even public markets like the Owino Market in Kampala. So, the President really thinks the public is stupid like his cows.

Therefore, if you want to assemble publically or to procession, it must be for a legitimate reason. If it is to preach hate, to decampaign investments in Uganda etc., then we shall not allow you. Those who have ignored this logic have paid a heavy price” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 05.05.2019).

What is legitimate reasons? Is it stand for your sole candidacy or your causes? Because, anyone else will be shutdown, met with tear-gas and arrests. That is just what happens, if not blocked or house-arrested before entering the paid venue. This is just what is happening, as the Police Force are steady monitoring the acts of the opposition and criminalizing all their activities. Therefore, whatever they do is illegitimate in your eyes and by your authorities. They can never win, they can only loose.

They can notify and negotiate with the Police Force for a rally, a conference and even a concert, but by the ordinary option. The Police will block it or even disperse the crowds before entering the venue. That’s why his assessment is bit far fetched. There are no way the Police Force are accepting rallies, except in a limited window of an election roadmap, but even then the Police can close a rally then.

So anything that his not interfering with the ego of the President and his comrades. The rest have to beg for mercy to legitimate or be like Mama Mabira who kissed the ring. That is just who he his. Also, last part, which needs to be addressed:

However, I also disapprove of the method the Police used to break the glass of Bobi Wine’s car. They should have towed the vehicle to wherever they wanted him to be” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 05.05.2019).

This one is really ironic, because this has been done to plenty of politicians in Uganda. This is not a new tactic of the Police. They have destroyed glass to throw in tear-gas into the vehicle. I know of plenty of times this has been done in the Republic. The Police Force have even towed Besigye across several districts to the closest prison at one point. So, he wanted the same thing when Bobi Wine crossed to property at One Love Beach and drag him to Mukono. Because, that is okay of them without warrants or even charges. This shows his lack of respect of individual freedom, which is only given to Jajja, but not the public in general.

This text shall be a warning, that all opposition is by all practicality illegitimate in the eyes of the President. Not that this is new, he has called by them all names and said he would destroy them. Surely, this sort of defence is showing his intent before the 2021 election. There is nowhere to hide, as they are clearly not spreading the message, the almighty accepts. But, we knew that already. Peace.

What if the Public Order Management Act (POMA) was aimed at the National Resistance Movement?

I wonder, this is an experiment, what if the Public Order Management Act was measured in way, where it didn’t hurt the opposition or any dissidents of the government, the President and the National Resistance Movement, but instead went directly and worked against them. I know, its impossible at this point of time, but that is why this an example. An example that has been running in my mind all day.

Let’s say President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was stopping in a roundabout in the middle of Kampala or even at Owino Market without any prior notification to the authorities. Where he would cease the ordinary life and people would congregate around his Toyato Land Cruiser, but also around the convoy of Special Force Command (SFC) and so-on. Still, because he didn’t apply to be there and hold this meeting.

The authorities would than be sanctioned to send the Police Force, the Residential District Commander together with the Regional Police Commander and the Kampala Metropolitan Police had to intervene. They could even send the Flying Squad there to stop the crowds to gather around the President. Arrest the “ring-leaders”, the people who he was planning to meet. Seal of the venues and tear-gas the crowds. Even put the President in the back of the black-van and drive him back to Okello House. Where he would be in House-Arrest until he followed the Police Order and didn’t incite violence. As he did on that day without notification to have a meeting with random people on the streets of Kampala.

In the same fashion as the National Resistance Movement was planning to hold a Conference and Leadership Training at Kyankwanzi. The Party would have to inform about the planned scheduled program, about the media meetings and the addresses, where the press is supposed to participate at the venue. Where the Police Force would swiftly deny entry because they don’t have manpower to keep the NRM safe or the public. As the NRM would still go ahead on their own property, the Police Force would have to seal of the venue, arrest Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba, Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda and Dr. Tanga Odoi. As they are parts of this, others that might be picked for rowdy behaviour and inciting violence would be Frank Tumbewaze, Ofwono Opondo, Kahinda Otafiire and Maj. Gen. Matayo Kyaligonza. All of them would be behind bars, awaiting trials for unknown alleged circumstances and the state awaiting to produce the evidence of it.

As those circumstances and contexts seems fine and dandy. There are others, that would seem fitting too. Since the NRM likes to ferry crowds in and around election times. Let say the NRM went around with their gadgets, their little soaps, foods and thousand shillings notes to the villages,as the NRM Village Projects always appear on the Campaign Trail of the Party.

As your playing that in your mind, as the NRM are travelling in the deep villages of Moroto or Adjumani. As the NRM Buses are ferrying crowds to the venues of the nearby stadiums. Where the President, his musicians and the SFC is in and about. The Police Force are coming with their mambas, arresting the coordinators of the Campaign. The driver of the President is taken to unknown location. His Land Cruiser is towed while he is still in it. The shocked NRM Party are following and trying to block the Police from doing this. While Secretary General Lumumba is trying to alarm the press. The NBS and NTV journalists following the Campaign Convoy is arrested and heading by another police van to Arua. The President is landing at the Moroto Magistrate Court, where his charged quickly before his airlifted to Luzira Maximum Security Prison. While the rest of the Campaign Team is either trying to get detained activists out of prison in Moroto Military Prison or awaiting trial themselves. Since, they have all broken the peace and public order by ferrying the crowds to the venue. A venue they hadn’t the clearance of the Police or the Police didn’t care about the notification and stopped it anyhow.

This was just three random scenarios. Very real scenarios, which the Opposition meets every day and all the time. Especially, when trying to gather or do political work. They cannot manage to do it, without the police intervening or being in the way of their work. The Opposition, if they try, they end up house-arrested, detained or charged with a crime. Even if the only thing they tried to do, was to actually do party work.

So, when the likes of Frank Tumwebaze saying the Police have made the Opposition heroes. Well, the Police have made them felons and outlaws, by just doing their duty and to be the checks and balances in the system. In a system that monitor, control and charge them, any time they can. This is the system that is built around the Public Order Management Act, as the Opposition has to beg to gather and do political work. Which is not a given, because the Police can use any reason or any excuse not too. That is just the way it is, but the NRM can do whatever, since the President and NRM has the Police and the Army. That is why the President can make a meeting without any form of notification and doesn’t need to follow the POMA. Even if he should, because he shouldn’t be above the law, but actually abide to it. Like everyone else. Peace.

Not Breaking News: The Supreme Court Validated the Age Limit Amendment today!

If you ever thought the Supreme Court would allow the appeal on the Age Limit or the abolishment of the Article 102(b) your wrong. The 1995 Constitution is a document that is to change, as the President see fit or as he is in need.

The ones that believed that the Supreme Court would dismiss it. The result 4 Judges to dismiss versus 3 to appeal. Seems more like trying to make it balanced, than it really is. Because, the judges could have just made it 7 to dismiss or even 6, maybe even 5. Since, the result is practically the same. Close, but no cigar.

There are nothing that is changed, only that all legal remedy before the General Election 2021 is gone. The road for the sole candidate of the National Resistance Movement. Nothing will stop him, yet again. Like it is child’s play, which it is. Because, everyone around him plays to his tune. The ones who doesn’t end behind bars for silly reasons like Besigye. That is just life in the republic.

Again, and again, all the remedy, all the legal and Parliamentary steps is taken to secure the Self-Styled dictatorship of the President. In the vision and way of Museveni. If you think it is brilliant. It is not, it is just misuse of state institutions and ensuring one man get everything.

This isn’t validating a constitution or rule of law. This is validating the Presidency and his cronies. There is nothing noble or justification of it. Except keeping the status quo and the misuse of the power, which the NRM and the ones around the President already does.

If you think the verdict of 18th April 2019 is splendid and worth celebrating. Than celebrate the arrests of opposition members, the assaults on civil society organizations, political rallies ambushed, concerts blocked, journalists silenced, radios losing their licenses and everything else that is used to stop the opposition from organizing. It will only get worse, before it gets better.

For one reason, there is less and less reasons for Museveni to play around. He has everything and all laws is in hands. All the security organizations is following his memos and the Parliament is doing as directed. There is no one questioning or stopping him from doing what he says. Even if it failure and foolish.

Don’t anticipate this verdict to make things better. It won’t, it will just give the President all the reasons to continue his run. To continue his persistence of stealing, dealing and killing everyone else seeking office. Ensuring overpower and control. Giving no way. Just being him. There is no other way to look at it.

This is again, giving all the powers to the same man, that has run the republic since 26th January 1986. We could joke, may even say Bosco is out of his mind. But he isn’t, his just using the Supreme Court, like he has used everything else for 3 decades.

He just got the final nudge, the final nail in the coffin. He has abolished the term limits, now he officiated the destruction of the age limit. Who knows what is next, but this man will do whatever it takes to be in power. To think otherwise, is a lie or you haven’t gotten the whole picture. If not you are naive and thinks this is a good. Which is not.

This is validating the corruption, the arrest of democracy and also the ability of others to compete. As it is yet another fixture ready for the victory of Team Museveni. Peace.

Opinion: Gen. Otafiire is oblivious to how the NRA/NRM always been supported by foreigners since its inception!

Our enemies are those working for the colonialists. You have a quarrel with Museveni and run to United States to report; you get a misunderstanding with Mr Museveni you go to United Kingdom to report him. Do those people govern us? Are you a president for Americans or British, have you ever seen Mr Museveni going to UK to ask for forgiveness?” (…) “If you want to go to report Museveni to Europeans, when you go there, please keep there. You are coming to seek votes then after putting you into power, you use Americans and the British to lead us. No, we got fed up with that. That’s why we are praying that we can build a united Africa so that Africans can lead themselves” – Kahinda Otafiire on 1st April 2019 (FELIX AINEBYOONA & ALFRED TUMUSHABE – ‘Bobi Wine trying to bring back colonialists – Gen Otafiire 01.04.2019).

There is hypocrisy out going in the mean streets of the world. Especially among the ones in power, who think they can blindside people and make them oblivious to certain fact. One of the heads of this practice is General. Kahinda Otafiire, the Minister for Justice in the Republic of Uganda, the former National Resistance Army (NRA) official and later emerging politician in the National Resistance Movement (NRM).

When he says his enemies, it is the voice of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who has an American Lawyer and such. However, the NRA/NRM wouldn’t exist to this date, if they didn’t get help. The almighty President and his people, wouldn’t have participated in the rigged election of 1980, if it wasn’t for the grand support of Tanzania and Julius Nyerere. That chapter might been forgotten by the Bush Warriors.

In addition, that the NRA got in secret deliveries of weapons and ammunition from Col. Muammar Gadhafi back in the day, that is direct Libyan intervention in the internal conflict of the Republic. This was during the 1980s bush-war, while Museveni and NRA was claiming to be self-sufficient. However, that was never the case.

Also, after taking power, if there was IMF/World Bank, no support from President Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. The President wouldn’t have gotten favourable agreements, loans and development funds to fund to rebuild the battle-torn Republic. The NRM will not claim that today, because that was their steady progress. Alas, the Western powers, bilateral agreements and direct donor aid funded lots of government portfolio back-in-the-day. So, Otafiire, better be silent.

This is just the start and not the whole picture even, as of today, the NRM couldn’t have managed doing infrastructure projects in major parts of the republic. If it wasn’t for loans from China or donations from Japan. They are still viable and the ones paying for the building of these. That is just the way it is. In addition, the major investment done by the United States in support of the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF), which wouldn’t been so modern and so well-trained. If it wasn’t for funding, training and direct support. This is well known, as well, as the agreements done with North Korea and others, who are outsiders, but when the NRM does it. It is apparently, patriotic and justified, but when the opposition does it. It is evil.

Therefore, when the NRM and their apologists uses colonists and foreign intervention as support of opposition. It is cool, as long as it happens to happen to them, but it’s a big, big problem, when the opposition does it. Because, the NRM is “Buy Uganda Build Uganda” , they are “Buy Chinese, Build Uganda”, but don’t tell Otafiire that. He will get shocked. Peace.

Opinion: The NRA Historicals acts like they are above the law

Let them (land probe) go to the president; I don’t care!” All ‘these things’, the government knows what happened. Let them go to the president, or God!” – Deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana

Surely this is the system of the President, that his loyal allies, the 26 Guns salute are allowed to whatever they feel like. The Entitlement of the National Resistance Amry, the now National Resistance Movement (NRM) Historicals and still vibrant politicians. They are allowed to grab land, be implicated in corruption scandals and even use force without any retaliation.

It is like they, the NRM Historicals are allowed to do whatever, that being Deputy AG Rukutana, Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi or now Gen. Kyaligonza, all of them can do whatever they want. The law will not really catch up to them. The likes of Muhwezi can squat on land and grab it, instead of loose it. He gets the army to cease the land that he occupies to then be delivered to him. That is how they operate. They can acts as overlords, because the President lets them.

Today, there are viral video of Kyaligonza out, on what ill acts the historical are doing in Mukono. As explained here. That the Uganda’s Ambassador to Burundi Gen. Matayo Kyaligonza and his security guards from the Uganda People’s Defence Force manhandled today a female Police Officer, as the Honourable lad took an illegal U-Turn in Seeta, Mukono.

Therefore, we are again seeing the mighty NRA soldiers and Generals are allowed to do as they please. The ushered in the Presidency and therefore, can act as they please. They can be above the law and do whatever they feel.

Like if an Opposition Member said what Rukutana said to Land Commission, they would have been in legal jeopardy, as no one should dare say that. Neither, if anyone else used the Security Guards like Gen. Kyaligonza this week. They would also played with fire. The same can be said if someone squatted on the land or grabbed it like Gen. Muhwezi is known to do.

They are just prime example, just like during the General Election and Campaigns before 2016, the now Minister Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafiire tried to embezzle and pay-off his competitor in the Election in his Constituency. However, there was no aftermath or even investigation. Even as the tape of the suggested pay-off was leaked online.

This is just what they are allowed to do and act, the Historicals can break the law, misuse their power and allegiance to the President. Therefore, they can act above the law and not get court-side or even see law enforce act against them. They are just walking like free birds. They can fly away without being touched.

That is the reality, today proves it again. The NRA/M Historicals can do what they please. There is nothing they cannot do. I am sure they could kill a beggar by the Square in Kampala and nothing would happen. Because, that is who they are and what role they play in society. They are allowed to act like this and the President let them. Because they helped him to power, therefore, he feels they should get special treatment since they are his allies and his weapon-brothers. Nevertheless, the public can feel like second class citizens, because they could never act like this and get away with it. Peace.
