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.

Opinion: Awaiting Museveni to appoint himself King of Rwakitura Kingdom and anoint his royal court!

We are tired of a situation that our constitution is only amended when Mr Museveni feels that he desires something. When his term expires, the constitution is changed to give him another term. When attains the age limit, the constitution is amended to lift the age limit. When he becomes weak to campaign, the constitution is amended to have him on the throne without elections”Betty Nambooze MP (30.01.2019).

Well, as anticipated, as the National Resistance Movement (NRM) have delivered their Road Map for General Elections in 2020/21. We can anticipate that the NRM and their NRM Parliamentary Caucus, will either drop some Private Bills or direct Electoral Reforms directly right before the polls. Just like it has done in the past. Like changing the boundaries of districts right before and ensuring more favourable candidates in these compared to the Opposition ones in the same region.

This is well-known tactics now during the last day, there been speculations delivered by the fantastic reporting of Sadab Kitatta Kaaya in the Observer, that the President are tired of hungry MPs and want to self-appoint them as he see fit, according with the results in any given district. So if he win Arua Municipality as President, the MP there would got to the NRM. That is the principal.

Also, with this move, the President is evidently taking away the opportunity for the NRM Members to vote for their given candidate, as they can handpick one favourable crony. Like in October 2015, the loyal crony and Minister of Justice Gen. Kahinda Otafiire lost to the detained Capt. Mugabe Dononzio Kahonda. So, the MP for Ruhiinda County went someone else, than the one in favour with the President. However, with the new rule, no Captain Mugabe would win, but Otafiire would be the chosen one. That is just the slim-picking of the President.

With the Age Limit, with the change of Presidential Terms, the Self-Styled President for Life, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will fix the laws as it favours him. Expect more of that in the coming time before the General Election of 2020/21. As he has seen the fire and swift changes within the electorate as Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has risen from the ashes of the ghetto into prominence.

He is not run-of-the-mill politician, neither is he part of the Bush-War Generation or anyone whose been associated with President. Certainly an Independent spirit, who the President cannot reside with and cannot contain. That is why, the changes of law, would be directed because he has seen the capabilities and the rigging couldn’t stop the new type of leadership. That is why the NRM and Bush-War Generation are calling him out and singling him out. Just like they did with Dr. Kizza Besigye.

For certain, the only awaiting the Republic is to change the form of government from Multi-Party Democracy and Republic, into a full fledged Kingdom, where the current day President Museveni turns into eternal King, the ruler of all Ugandans and with all it posses. Where his vision is the law, where his words are the fountain of glory and where his men is anointed into power. No need for elections, as the King by decree is levying who gets to be lawmakers, who gets to be merchants, who gets to be generals, who gets to be soldiers, who gets to be peasants and so-on.

That is what the game is missing after 33 years. As the NRM playing the court, playing the public and international community. With small legislative changes and rumours of twists, to ensure more control and less questions from anyone else. As the self-serving man and ruler, wants to reign without questions. That is who he is, the ones praising him for being the New Breed of Leadership in the 1990s, didn’t know him really. Because, with the years his character has been shown to the world and no PR Stunt can overshadow it.

President Museveni are ready to be King. Museveni, who is ready to become a royal monarch and let it be known to world. That the citizens of the former republic of Uganda, will be subjects of his Kingdom of Rwakitura. Where they are like livestock and not independent citizens, they are people who are there to serve the King and be his loyal subjects. The are supposed to bow for the King and feel blessed that he uses his time on them. Not complain and just be there as props in his Monarchy. Where he can order them around, but they are not supposed to address him back. Because, he as King is the word, that is holier than God and has more vision than anyone else. That is who he is, in his naked mind and how he acts.

He just need it enacted, get he ACTS and BILLS through Parliament. Than, it could be official. Also pay enough shillings to the NRM Caucus MPs. Time will tell, but by his actions and words. This wouldn’t be far fetched. Especially not his dreams of total control. Peace.

Age Limit: The value of the Life Presidency is now about two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita!

What if I told you that, based on the incoming numbers from today’s reporting and last year. We can establish the certain cost of the Age Limit Bill and how much the National Resistance Movement (NRM) or the NRM MPs has cost in total. An amendment of the Constitution, which in purpose have given President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Life Presidency.

With that in mind, I have calculated what each of the NRM MPs have gotten in payment. As it first was the cost of Consultations and the total value of that, later I have taken the direct payment for passing the bill. So take a look!

Latest report on the payment:

The first installment of Shs 40 million was paid before the amendment was passed in 2017 with another installment of Shs 100 million coming immediately after the passing of the Bill. The final installment of Shs 60 million was to be paid on November 30 last year. At the beginning of this week, the MPs received telephone calls from the leadership of the NRM Parliamentary caucus to go for the money but instead of the Shs 60 million, the MPs received Shs 45 million” (Kabuubi, 2019).

Lets do some calculations:

Each of the 317 Members of the NRM Caucus have gotten in total Shs. 85 million shillings or offered this, as it is reported. I will look at the whole sum for everyone, as it is to hectic to calculate the ones that didn’t receive it all, as they wanted the whole sum of Shs. 100 million, but the proof of cost is still up-to-date. As it shows how much the state anticipated to pay for the whole operation to the MPs in question.

So the sum for passing to date is about Shs. 85 million Ugandan shillings doesn’t say so much internationally, so if your using the foreign exchange today. Each MP would get in about $22,740 US Dollars. That is in both instances with the total fee, however, today, they got equlent about “only” $ 12,041 US Dollars or £9,415 Great British Pounds.

This is the payment done for the bill itself, but for the ones remembering back in time. This isn’t the first fee, these honourables got for doing so. The MPs got a consultation fee each. Which I stated like this in October 2018, when the MPs got Shs. 29 millions each for consulting their constituents.

To put the 29 million in perspective is about $ 8000 United States Dollars or £ 6000 Great British Pounds (With the exchange rate in October 2018). So it isThe whole cost of the consultation of the bill was $ 3,553.660 or about 3,5 million United States Dollar. That is the cost of the MPs consultations is equivalent of 13 billion Uganda Shillings or about 3,5 million US Dollars.

That was then, but now with the revelation, there are more money at play. Making the calculation more interesting. As the whole freaking project is getting under wraps. Because, we should calculate all the millions spent on these MPs, to prove the value of Life Presidency in the eyes of Bosco. As he sees this sums fit to give life to his dream of ruling until eternity. The $ 3,5m USD was premature. Since there was even the direct payments to the 317 NRM Caucus MPs. Which was revealed today.

With that in mind, lets do the Math:

Shs. 29m + Shs. 85m = Shs. 114m or $ 30,501 USD or even £ 23,844 GBP each.

That is what the MPs gotten each in Consultation Fees and Direct Payment. We should still look at the whole shindig. Therefore we have to look into how much Shs. 114m are times 317 MPs. That is about Shs. 36 billion or into $ 9,6m USD, or about £ 7,5m GBP.

To put that in perspective how much that really is. In Ugandan Perspective, it is as much as the Namugongo Museum Development Committee planned in 2016 to spend on Anglican Martyrs Shrine in Namugongo, as they would develop the museum, build a conference centre, guest house and a library.

To do another one, the value of the Age Limit bills as of today, it is about the value of two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, which is valued about $4.8m USD. Which is an upgrade, as in October last year, the value of the Age Limit was valued to one single Aston Martin. Which is fine itself, but a bit low, considering the value of the Presidency and its perks. The Presidency should cost more and be more expensive. This is still cheap, even if two Koenigsegg is a costly affair.

We should expect more, as we know how the prices on good players are in the Premier League, they are through the roof and a slot of the Presidency shouldn’t be sold for cheap, it should be some Gareth Bale, Christiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappé or Neymar. The Ugandan President cost as much as the transfer of Nottingham Forrest Michael Antonio to West Ham in 2016, which in the schemes of things. Is nothing in comparison to the trade of Age Limit. The gift of extension of Presidency and being the Head of State, the Commander-in-Chief and so-on. That should be valued more.

Two fantastic Koeningsegg or a Championship transfer to the Premier League isn’t capturing the seriousness in the trade. To get the opportunity of becoming President for Life, should cost more. We all should agree on that. Peace.

Gyagenda Kabuubi – ’Cash bonanza in Parliament as MPs get paid age limit balance’ 09.01.2019, link: https://intelpostug.com/2019/01/09/cash-bonanza-in-parliament-as-mps-get-paid-age-limit-balance/

Opinion: No need for a Constitutional Review, when you have a self styled President for Life!

Let me be clear, as long as Mr. 1986 and his Generals are in power. The changes and amendments of law. Will not be the betterment of the Republic. However, they will made for his clientele and cronies. They will be amended either to fit the Executive, the President, His Excellency or his closest associates who has stood loyally by him. It will not be for the greater good. That ship has left the port long time or go. Or for a landlocked country, that train has left the station.

Because now there is news of a 14 people appointed to a Constitutional Review Commission to consider various Constitutional reforms. These reforms are clearly following the Age Limit boosting of the Constitution of 2017. Also, the other amendments done to abolish terms before the 2005 General Elections. Therefore, it is now certain, that the President has eager to get his ways.

This is now coming up again, as the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and the President are planning again to revise the Constitution. Clearly, this is more on the land reforms. As the President had a second amendment in mind. Which he didn’t deliver at the same time as the Age Limit. As the President wants to secure easier access through law. So, that the state can access land and expropriate it when needed. Or whenever it is profitable for the ones in the State House.

There been things in sessions, but not acts which has been fruitful. Therefore, this process is a way of swaying it further and give it a nudge. Because, the President knows that he cannot push things to far at a time. Only micro-manage it little by little, so that people are getting used to closing of Radio Stations, Opposition leaders behind bars and other lingering around with treason charges.

Still, with all that in the context, the State and the Judiciary are certainly doing this to please the President. TO ensure his orders from above is followed and administered. This is only for appearances sake and not for the just cause. If so, why didn’t they appoint these people to look into properly the Age Limit Clause and Legal Argument of the Magyezi Bill of 2017?

It is because it didn’t matter that much, as the rule of law is the words of Museveni. He can change it and turn cow-turds into gold. That is what he does. That is the real metaphor for the ways of the President.

I don’t this, because I don’t trust the process and I always thinks there is an end-game for the President. He will configure some move or spectacle to get it his way. Where this might go, but the Judiciary wouldn’t do this, if there wasn’t any plans from the above. There are always some scheming going on and Museveni plays it like chess.

Therefore, he might be a slow king, but a king who knows the way. He always sends the useless pawns in his battles, the knights and the towers. But leave the queen to clear the table and for him to eat without even cooking. That is just what he does.

The same feat will be done here. It is just a matter of time. This Review will be centered on what Museveni. Not what the Republic needs. Peace.

A Breakdown: A Pattern of condescending retorts going Bobi Wine’s way!

Well, when you get to certain levels of fame, fortune and political leverage. The other players and politicians take notice and therefore, you either become someone you aspire to be or someone you tries to downplay. In this regard, this piece is about the ones who tries to downplay Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. This is all to be expected at this point. As the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and the President wants to discredit any voice or dissidents that are there. That is natural. So the first one commenting, is coming as clockwork, the second one too. Which also striking in the regard, that its perspective is militarized and belittling Bobi Wine. Take a look, before resume!

If you surrender government to small boys like Bobi Wine, you would declare the entire country a national emergency in a period of 6 months. These small wanainchi think running a nation is like managing a small music band” – Gen. Kahinda Otafiire.

“The Military formation of Uganda i know currently would not allow the civilian likes of Bobi Wine as their Commander In Chief. Museveni positioned their mind in away they can only accommodate a president with a strong military background or a known political veteran” Gen David Sejusa aka Tinyefuza aka Tinye.

Now, that these statements are out of the way. Let me begin. Otafiire is the clockwork man, the ever loyal cadre to Museveni. No one would ever have the statute or the ability to reign, except his friend Yosri. We all know this, they have been thick as thieves since the Bush-War. There is no denying in that, Otafiire isn’t in government because he was elected, no he got promoted as civilian. Otafiire, has as little traction, as he tried to bribe his competition to win the MP spot. Therefore, he cannot even himself stand on his ground. He has to pay-off people to gain their respects. Therefore, Otafiire, should be reminded, that he has nothing to compete or say himself in this manner. Other than another token of respect to his master and President. So, if Bobi Wine is small boy, what you are Otafiire? You lost to guy in prison, twice before the 10th Parliament? So, your a loser than? Let’s say that is noted.

Now, let me take on a man, I have respected and understandably so, because of his defiance against the state. The way he has leaked information to the Daily Monitor and also worked with Besigye. Sejusa are smart, but falls short. The narrative of constant military presence in the State House and Presidency. Will never lead to the peaceful transition needed in the Republic. If the military are involved in internal manners like that. There will never be hope for a democratic elected leadership, as the guns and the guards will matter more.

Both, also addressed the age of Bobi Wine. While forgetting the average of the National Resistance Army guys entering into power, they where in the mid-thirties and early 40s in 1986. The same age bracket as Bobi Wine. To say that the friend Yoser or Yoweri was to young then. Would be wrong now. The only difference is that Museveni has all the sculls of Luweero on his conscience, while Bobi Wine has none.

Therefore, this belittling has to stop. Get another narrative. Get another preposition. Ask Bobi Wine about his policies and political framework. See if that holds water, not his age and if he has been around people carrying guns. That isn’t government and good governance. We all know that, these Generals knows that too. But acts like the reality is different.

When it really isn’t, yes the NRM is militarism incarnated, but that doesn’t mean the state should be likewise. Peace.

Opinion: Ssekandi you should talk to your boss, because he is the one that creates the insecurity!

There is times for the ones in power to called upon their bullshit. This sort of comments is foolish. It is not like the opposition has the army or have the police at their beckoning-call. They are following orders from above high and the authorities run by the ruling regime. The way the soldiers and police officers acts towards the citizens are report-on and uploaded instantly to the social media. So, if the Police or the Army is acting out. The world will know, the foreign investors will know. Therefore, if the President and VP cares about this. Maybe, they shouldn’t crash any opposition meeting. Maybe not send their ill-disciplined security officers.

VP Edward Ssekandi are really using the tactic of warning the citizens, while they are the ones oppressed. It wasn’t them sending the army to Entebbe or ordering the Presidential Guards into Kamwokya, Kampala recently. No, that was from above and their acts in Mityana and elsewhere, just resembles the chaotic nation he speaks off.

GOMBA- Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi has warned that the country risks losing a number of foreign investors if Ugandans don’t shun political violence and land conflicts.“Be cautious about the ugly scenes you’re creating in our country because investors can’t put their money in a chaotic nation. Peace and security are paramount in attracting investments and therefore, I wish to call upon all Ugandans to ensure peace wherever you’re to see miracles of these investors here,” he said” (Mbogo, 2018).

Maybe not speak of chaos, on the day your government order the soldiers and the police to make road-blocks all around Masaka, because Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine travels from Kasangati to Masaka. Clearly, the NRM hasn’t gotten the memo from the big-man Ssekandi. Whose stretch of powers seems abysmal, as the Prime Minister has more of an office and voice within the Presidency.

While it is like that. Ssekandi should maybe think of what Bosco does and what orders he gives. As it is him whose most responsible for the acts of the Special Force Command and the Police, which is in-charge and the ones doing the torture. Doing the preventative arrests and whatnot else, which is creating chaos and problems. We know that the authorities just turned of the electricity, as Bobi Wine was addressing the nation from the United States. Therefore, the VP needs to address the State House. And not the citizens.

So, VP Ssekandi call-up Bosco, tell him to order the military back to the barracks and battlefields. Not be in public to intimidate and create chaos. Peace.

Uganda Police Force: Public Security Warning ahead of Independence Day Celebration (28.09.2018)

If Bosco thought this Security Presser was reassuring, it wasn’t!

People say I’m a dictator but I don’t know how I dictate. I must be one of the best dictators in the world”Yoweri Kaguta Musveni (15.09.2018).

Today, speech or Press Conference on the 15th September 2018. That wasn’t following his intention or whatever reason he decided to hold this. Because President Museveni are really on the bounds and feels hurt by the pressure preceding because of the Post-Arua By-Election aftermath.

Of course, we knew that these items were growing in number. However, we did not anticipate that evil minded people would want to kutokooza (Runyankore ─ for something bad like a fly falling into one’s food or drink) this success story, to turn something good into an instrument of killing Ugandans” (Museveni, 15.09.2018).

This speech and this sort of affair today is more forged spin from the President. As he is trying to look better than he really is and people has seen it all before, but more like he has to because he knows Bobi Wine aka Robert Kyagulanyi are pressuring him from Washington D.C. The quotes and pledges are not trustworthy.

Not like he couldn’t help himself lying to the public:

The NRM is expert in using guns. There are few organisations in the world that can use guns as well as the UPDF but we never kill people extra-judicially” (Museveni, 15.09.2018).

As we know perfectly well, how the NRM, the Army (UPDF), the Special Force Command (SFC) and the Police Force (UPF) have been killing extra-judicially around the nation. In Arua there was the driver of Bobi Wine, in Mityana after and also in Rukungiri. That is just a few of the people the NRM and the soldiers has killed over the year, extra-judicially. What is new, is that the international media actually cares, as Abiriga, Kaweesi, Kirumira and the other big-shots have also been taken out without anyone charged for these assassinations. Together with the killings of woman in Entebbe and the Muslim Clerics. There are so many killings and so little results to show for, other than the intimidation and the usage of force against civilians have appeared without any consequences. That is the worry and the speech of Museveni today, haven’t changed that.

So after hearing stuff like that, that can so easily be debunked as a solid lie.

That is why I have hard time taking him seriously, as he thinks he can sugarcoat everything. As he can put a few numbers, a few name-calling and also speak ill of the opposition. Also, the continued pressure on the CCTV cameras that will solve everything, even more micro-management of the Security Operations in Uganda.

We can really see, that he is just trying to damage control, thinking this is wise. I don’t know whom of the Presidential Advisors or in-charge of his PR that thinks these recent speeches has spread his message. If has done it on his own, he has really shot himself in the foot. As the reality is that the trust in the authorities isn’t built in his speeches, but actual feeling of safety and also seeing less of the military intimidating presence in the streets. However, that is most likely not happening in the era of Museveni.

The man trying make people feel safe, was actually not long ago ordering sharp-shooters for the Members of Parliament, which they have recently said “no” too. Therefore, it is ironic that Museveni have been talking about amounts of cars, motorcycles and cellphones in his Republic, as well as the method of communication of the Police Officers. As the micro-management continues from the President.

The pigs that have doomed their future by shedding the blood of innocent Ugandans, have only themselves to blame for their eternal damnation” (Museveni, 15.09.2018).

Surely, if Bosco thinks these Pressers are wise, it is not. The President has to act differently, but most likely he will not. The Perfect Dictator will not deliver anything, he rather lie to the public and try to peddle it in his favor. However, people shouldn’t let that happen, as we know the Security Organizations are not working for the people, but for him. That is why he will not find out the reality of Arua or the extra-judicial killings. Because that might hurt him directly and his cronies. Peace.
