Opinion: Tired of NRM apologists defending the record of President Museveni!

It is depressing, it is sad and it tormenting to listen and read the defenses of National Resistance Movement. The defense of the 31 years of rule, the rule of the for life President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his cronies. The cronies and their 10th Parliament, the By-Elections that are rigged in favor of the NRM Regime. The government of Uganda is totally controlled by the one in-charge, the President and kingpin.

The Parliament are following orders and making amends to seem to be different. Therefore, the results of elections are more to just show overpower, but not to have real elections. As the NRM sends buses and pays of villages with small-fees and commodities. There aren’t anything fruitful or sincere by the regime. The ones who put dissidents in the Nalufenya prison. Where they will be beaten, tortured and get ill. As well, as in the overcrowded prison in Luzira. The organized silence of opposition, as their rallies are filled with tear-gas and police brutality. If not the ones who are feared by the NRM are put on treason charges and called terrorists.

President Museveni with his patronage, his bloated State House, the massive cabinet and the Presidential Advisors. There certainly enough ghosts, fake bills and misuse of state reserves to write books ten times thicker than the bible. We can know by the lost trillions of the Petroleum monies, as the “Presidential Handshake” is a drop in the ocean. As the UNRA and other agencies has misused the taxpayers monies. This happens with such ease and lacking finesse, but the agencies looking into graft and corruption is compromised, because the ones leading it are loyal Musevenist.

That the government and budgets are bloated. That the financial and economic state is in deep distress, as the state is suffering from lacking provisions and revenue. As well, as they are struggling with the stop of donor friendly relationships. People’s and Foreigners trust in the leadership of Museveni has been dwindling. President Museveni are also already prospecting the revenue of the oil and petroleum, even before it has surfaced. Therefore, the future will also be compromised by the deals done today.

The defenders of the NRM now, does not believe in real democracy, as they defending the rigging and militant Movement. A President who has no trouble with killing and destroying to stay in power. The ones defending him has no trouble to stand by a man who empties the treasury and state reserves with no hesitation. As well, as the men and woman who stays by the regime, are easily taking land and resources, they are eating of the plate and selling it back to the Ugandans. This with impunity and without any consideration of the ones who loses their chances.

It is a nation who has a government, not based on merit, but on loyalty. The loyalty to Museveni and his agenda. The agenda to work for him and his ideas. Not work to develop the nation, but develop the estate of Museveni. The idea of real Movement is ploy from the master himself. He just needs shadows to work for him and for envelopes. Not a real party who deliver policy or working for the future Republic. No the Movement is now a shell used pounce out the empty ideas of greed, nurture of the estates of Museveni and of the staging the power of the old-man with the hat!

President Museveni and his apologists knows all of this, they live by this and has faith that this is ideal and the dream. That someone comes with empty promises and lives by the fake party celebrating the 1986 coup. The coup that overruled the government and the old constitution, that President Museveni couldn’t pigeonhole. That has he done to his own and plans to do it again for his 8th Term.

The apologists can say he created safety, but he also created warfare and civil-war to get to power. Some called it a revolution, other calls it a takeover. But with time it wasn’t for the idea of a people’s government, but more a government and state built around the revolutionary, who didn’t really believe in the words he spoke.

The ones defending him, is defending a lie and that for the sake of eating. Not for the benefit of the Republic or the public. The struggling public is pawns, they are just needed props now and then for the Movement. As they praise their master, as they know if they get to close or too ambitious they are surely losing their place. Therefore, all of them are loyal cadres, elite and patrons who surely basks in the pasture of the President. But really, they should know it is on borrowed time. No-one knows how long the patronage and military can be serviced, how long they can all live on the charade and the misuse of power.

Certainly, the President knows this too, therefore, he uses all ways to make sure and get people on board. Even if that lets people starve, let them cheat on food reliefs and even use refugees as bailing-out card on the struggling economy. That is solely made of the patronage and grand-corruption orchestrated from the seat of the President at the Okello House. He can created all sorts of schemes and manufacture new ways of promoting better agriculture or better yields, but it is all ploys of generating more funds for his own. Not for the public to earn or get better output of the seeds and seedlings. If so, than the agricultural should be booming after 30 years in power.

However, the defense of this will be in the patronage and by the spokespersons appointed by the President. These ones will make a fuzz and say the Opposition never was a viable option and never had the leadership to overturn the Movement. The Movement has always been the only option, they say and use new ways of saying so. But that doesn’t make it true, as the rigging and the intimidation is used to forge this facade. The flawless untouched ballots doesn’t exists, there has been all sorts of play to get the will of the President.

President Museveni, even detain opposition, he uses safe-houses and some like Sam Mugumya are detained in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with no plan of getting him home. Him and others are lingering abroad as the political prisoner lingers in uncertainty. This is the legacy of the revolutionary, who became the draconian and the militarized government who uses all means to stay. He uses all methods on earth, Machiavellian and Orwellian blended in a Yellow Color with no fear of repression… no fear that the Movement can be touched, but when the moment appear. Than the Ugandans shouldn’t lose it, because they have already lost so much in the name of Museveni. Museveni has stolen the past and the present. His men has rewritten the history and tried to become the grand hero, and the generations from the rebellion is dwindling away. The young generation only knows the folklore and should beware, it is not all what it seems. The ghosts are not only in the budgets, but they are haunting the President from the past. They are the ones he stole to gain power and to silence the opposition. These souls will ask in the after-life, why he did what he did to them and also why he punished their grand-kids. Since they all lead the same faith. They all got to feel the pain, with no mercy from the leadership controlled by the President.

That is why there are no defending a man like Museveni. He has used all tricks, even was able to deceive the west for decades to pay for his decadence. Certainly, he must laugh about the dumb-white men and their agendas. His grin must be wide thinking of all the sorts of cars, airplanes and ranch expansions that are paid by the friends of direct-state aid. They have kept his roof and his ammunition, to oppress and to relief his patronage. Therefore, if someone is defending this man. Think of his track-record and all the souls he has left behind. Peace.

President Kenyatta orders that imports of Sugar and Milk Powder to be tariff free until August 2017, who in the Jubilee will eat the spoils?

President Uhuru Kenyatta finally found a solution to the rising the prices and inflation on basic foods. Therefore on the day there is 30,000 tons Sugar coming in at Mombasa this morning.

This after the first Executive Order of Kenyatta this year said: “That the drought and the famine in parts of Kenya is a national disaster, duty shall not be payable for the following items- 

(a) Sugar imported by any person, with effect from the date of Notice to the 31st August, 2017; and

(b) nine thousand tonnes of milk powder imported by milk processors, with the authority of the Kenya Dairy Board, with effect from the date of this Notice to the 31st August, 2017 Dated the 11th May 2017” (The Kenya Gazette, Vol. CXIX – No. 62, Nairobi, 12th May 2017).

So as this happens, you can wonder if the Sugar millers and Sugar exporters are connected with the government. Since the 30,000 tons just appear on the day after the gazette. That means, someone knew about the plans of the government and let it happen. It isn’t just appearing from the sky, that a holy angel sends 30,000 tons of sugar to Kenya and the Port of Mombasa on the day after the Executive Order was signed and than relieved to the public by Cabinet Secretary for the National Treasury Henry Rotich. He is just a useful CS, who certainly will have his pieces of deliverance of all the duty free goods.

That the government, close connections with the Jubilee government and the Sugar cartels will surely gain profits on these exported foods. This been in a country where the tariffs has been a 100% on Sugar and added VAT 16 %. Therefore, this reactions seem to be a ploy to earn monies on gullible people and think that the people will take it as goodwill. This is happening at the same time, as the prices on sugar is still on a two year low worldwide. President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto, might think the Kenyans doesn’t see through this. But they should question the companies, the boats and who orders the duty free goods to Kenya from today and until 31st August.

Like who earns the profits on the sugar and the milk powder in these months. They are clearly planning it and not only for the famine and drought. But for sole purpose of gaining massive amount of funds in the period of campaigning. This just appearing and ordered in the critical time. The Jubilee government doesn’t know how to be subtle. Can wonder if any of the corporations and importing businesses owned by the Kenyatta’s or Ruto’s would benefit from this. I wouldn’t be shocked, neither if anyone else of the Jubilee government got a payday and huge amount of Bob’s in their accounts. Peace.

The law: 

Kenya: At the moment, Sugar is not sweet for Jubilee!

The prices of Sugar in Kenya is special experiment, as the taxation on imports of sugar is a 100% and also 16% VAT on the sugar imported. Secondly, the industry is controlled by the state, there been talk of privatization of millers owned and the Kenya Sugar Board who regulate the industry. As well as the Ministry of Agriculture is making sure the output of the farmers are corrected.

Therefore, as the prices worldwide is sinking and going-low, the prices of sugar are going up. This is happening in the months right before election time.

The government must know the industry is struggling as the only private miller Mumias are again on a downward spiral:  Already, the miller has been closed for three months. According to managing director Errol Johnson the closure was meant to fix equipment, which had contributed to the company’s poor performance due to inconsistent maintenance. The closure from April 11 came barely a month after the cash-strapped miller received Sh239 million from the government, as part of the bailout strategy” (BiznaKenya, 2017).

That the Mumias miller proving the big-problems in the Sugar industry, as it has been evident for years. The agricultural output and yields haven’t been the issue alone, it is denial of the state to figure out working changes to the millers, the import and also control it has over it. That the government has the oversight and the insight to the issues, are clearly that the Jubilee haven’t been interested in-changing it, as the benefit of this system. Therefore, President Kenyatta and Deputy President Ruto hasn’t touched it or done anything else than bailing out Mumias on the last dive of the company. Therefore, the reports shown here. Proves the initial factors to the grand issues and why the prices are sky-rocketing, while the international prices are falling. Take a look!

Barriers for Sugar Productions:

Sugar milling is a high fixed cost business requiring substantial economies of scale in cane crushed to break-even” (…) “Existing relationships of patronage between governments and large milling companies serve to align the incentives of government and millers such that new entrants would find it difficult to compete with incumbents and obtain the same benefits” (Chisanga, Gathiaka, Onyancha & Vilakazi, P: 12, 2014).

Government ownership in the sector remains large, despite higher relative efficiency in the private sector and long term plans for privatization. While some privatization has taken place over the past decade, government-controlled factories held a 37 percent production share, with additional non-controlling shares in other firms. Part of the argument in favor of privatization is the relative efficiency of production in private mills over those controlled by the government” (…) “The local sugar milling market is quite concentrated, and combined with the barriers to trade this suggests that the largest players have significant power over prices. Mumias, the largest sugar company, had a market share of 38 percent of domestically produced sugar in 2011, lower than its typical market share due to cane shortages. Combined with the government-controlled share of the industry, this implies that essentially two entities control at least 75 percent of local production. The shares of local producers in domestic market sales vary quite widely depending on the period, as the volume of imports fluctuates a great deal. For example, Kenya Sugar Board data from the first two quarters of 2012 show importswere approximately 33% of local production” (Argent & Begazo, P: 5-6, 2015).

Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, a government (Jubilee) body, reports that 2.2 million Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) have closed shop in kenya over the last five years. These are some of the reasons that inform our opposition to Jubilee. Personally, I think Uhuru and Ruto are fine Kenyans; wonderful husband to their spouses; incredible fathers to their children; and great benefactors to their elite friends, but have terribly failed in the duties of the office of the presidency” (…) “All sectors of Kenyan economy has been negatively affected by the floods of cheap imports, brought into kenya by unscrupulous businessmen connected to those in power, having unbridled freedom to import anything of their choice without paying taxes: From sugar industry; to textile; to agriculture, denying kenya the much needed revenue for development. Over the weekends, the leaders behave like Frank Lucas, donating part of the proceeds from these imports to the same societies they are killing by giving out these import certificates” (Sadat, 2017).

That the government haven’t made sure the industry and financial markets been sufficient is proven with the macro problems in Kenya. The import sanctions together with the stronghold control of certain millers and Kenya Sugar Board, there are patronage and cartels that sets the prices and the payments for the yields. Together with the storage and cane production that is initial to the issues that are there today. That President Kenyatta and DP Ruto hasn’t taken charge and paid amends is the reason for the prices at this point. That the Sugar Barons, Sugar Cartels and Sugar Companies are connected with government is understood as the politicians are taking handouts from them as well.

As the COFEK open letter to Kenyatta said so well and I will end with:

No one in your government can categorically state how much stocks are being held in the strategic grain reserves. Casual talk of wanting quality of the same maize, from the millers lobby, heightens speculation that your government is unwilling to walk the talk on cutting the cost of living. As things stand, it is fair to say that your Government has taken a holiday on consumer protection as cartels take over the all-important food security sector. It follows that your government, is therefore, in breach of Article 46 of the Constitution you swore to protect. Needless to mention, it is a tall order for you to protect and uphold the sovereignty, integrity and dignity of the people of Kenya if they remain hungry – with a single or no meal at all, thanks to the high cost of living. Your government supposedly offers huge subsidies to farmers through farm inputs like fertilizers which do not get to them. It’s the middlemen and cartels who end up smiling to the bank as farmers toil in vain” (COFEK, 2017).

Peace.

Al Jazeera’s interview undress Mzee’s so-called Democracy!

Again, President Yoweri Katuga Museveni tried use the trick of democracy, as the ballots and the Electoral Commission, didn’t cook the numbers like a drunk cafeteria staffer and tried to sell it Michelin Star Restaurant. Mr. President has try to sell it other numb-sculls than me, but I am not his target audience.

Let me address one thing Al-Jazeera did wrong, they called him a five time term President, as off his elections. Certainly, the Media House are forgiven for giving way to the propaganda arm of the Movement and their rewriting of history. But there is decade when he wasn’t elected and postponed elections. Sort of the same trick President Joseph Kabila tries to pull of in Democratic Republic of Congo. Well, that is another story for another day. What Al-Jazeera does is to erase the years between 1986 to 1996. Since he wasn’t elected nor had an election, as the rebel and two time General going in and getting rid of the ones on the throne. That is easy to forget as the time past and most of his citizens are born since the 1990s.

Well, before more comments. Look at this interview and the comments of the long-term dictator and ruler of the Republic of Uganda.

Outtake of the Interview:

Museveni: Have you heard of something called democracy? Democracy means you elect the people you like. We had elections about one year ago and my party won 62 percent of the vote. That does not show that the people of Uganda are fed up of our party because they have voted for us five times.

Al Jazeera: According to some reports, you have demanded to be given the right to choose the next leader of Uganda. You were unsuccessful.

Museveni: No. I cannot demand that. The people are there. The people have been electing me, in spite of Al Jazeera.

Al Jazeera: Are you going to run for another term?

Museveni: We follow our Constitution.

Al Jazeera: There are reports that you are about to change the Constitution so that you can run for another term. Is that going to happen?

Museveni: I cannot change the Constitution because I do not have that power.

Al Jazeera: Reports also say that you are now preparing your own son, who is now highly elevated in the army and he’s your special adviser on certain issues. Your wife is also a minister – she sits next to you on the cabinet. Reports are you are preparing one of the two to become the next president of Uganda. What do you say to this?

Museveni: Why should I prepare them? The people of Uganda will choose the one they want.

Al Jazeera: People in your family are very close to you right now, closer than anybody else. There are reports that you are focusing on your own relatives and this is nepotism – giving them higher seats in the government. Isn’t that nepotism, Mr President?

Museveni: That’s not nepotism. The few members of my family that are involved, I involve on their own merit. My wife, against my advice, stood for election and had the biggest majority in the whole country – because the population appreciate what I have done(Talk to Al Jazeera, 2017).

I wonder if President Museveni feels that as a sole candidate and NRM Flag-Bearer for three decades, that he knows there hasn’t been any suggestion of other people running the country. Why are Dr. Kizza Besigye, Dr. Olara Otunnu, Dr. Paul Ssemogerere and Amama Mbabazi never became Presidents after you? Certainly one of them could have been legitimate presidents and de facto leaders as well. Not only you Mr. President of a so-called democracy? But hey, you took the grip of the nation by the gun and never let-go!

He speaks about electing him, if he means he puts up elections and than makes sure rigging it and using the military to spread fear in the villages; than he would be closer to the actual fact. The time when he was popular have gone, as the pictures only today in the villages when Besigye rode around the whole village turned-up to the car of the opposition leader. Something that wouldn’t occur on the watch of the President, as people more fear him and the security forces around him.

That President Museveni speaks of respecting the constitution, he has already pigeon-hold it to fit the paradigm of longevity of himself. If someone we’re up to change the age-limit on the Presidency, it wouldn’t be out of his character to drop of a few suits to the MP’s and have a summit at Kyankwanzi where the subject came and the Movement would celebrate in the progress the party has made. So the use of democracy and constitution is just fronts to look uptight, when the reality is much more bleak.

Let’s be clear if the Ugandans really could choose, it wouldn’t be you, you are already old milk that is not drinkable. The fatigue and disguise of so-called democracy doesn’t work anymore, the gig is up Mr. President. The evidence is right there, on the kangaroo court, the post-election violence and the disappearance of governance from the Central Governance. It is all circled around you and not the institutions of the government. If so there wouldn’t be given food to district who doesn’t need so and the districts getting who needs so are not getting enough. Just as the proof of the food relief in Lira, Abletong and Dokolo this weekend.

The first lady and Minister for Karamoja says she will not be seeking re-election as MP for Ruhama County in the 2016 elections. In a statement to her constituents, Mrs. Museveni said she had reached the decision after a lot of thinking and prayer. She asked that her constituents to understand her and accept her message within grace” (NTV Uganda, 22. May 2015).

So how Mrs. Janet Museveni is on merit and was elected to her role as Minister in his cabinet, is not only violation of her place, but he directly lied to Al-Jazeera, but calling Uganda a Democracy and calling himself elected by the people is a forgery. President Museveni knows it and the world does to. The rigging and the pre-ticked ballots is known by the ones googling away. The history on how he changed the constitution in the past is there too. Not like it is not well known. The ignorant are the ones who doesn’t know.

That President Museveni uses the Flying Squad or Special Forces Command to kill and get of rid of dissidents isn’t a rumor or a mirage, it is mere fact of sadness of overstepping powers. As the ones with detaining dissidents and opposition voices like Stella Nyanzi, but also others. Therefore, keep in mind that Uganda isn’t democratic. That President Museveni is on his 7th Term, not on his 5th that is National Resistance Movement rewriting of history and the world has swallowed it! Peace.

Apparently, Mzee needs counsel from 163 appointed individuals!

It is just one of these days that the souring networks of brown-enveloped friendly figures in Uganda gets to level that is certainly, only one thing, and one thing only: “Bonkers”. That the Republic of Uganda, has such a giant cabinet already, should be a warning sign, but now with the extended Presidential Advisors, the levels of cronyism, isn’t funny, but a sincere apology to anyone who thought President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni cared about Steady Progress. The progression, apparently, meaning him giving favors and creating jobs for loyalty.

“The move is in keeping with the president’s tradition of shoring up the numbers of his presidential advisors after every election cycle or cabinet reshuffle. However, the request, which would raise the number of presidential advisors from 145 to 163, has met strong opposition from members of Parliament. According to the 2017/18 ministerial policy statement for the Presidency, the appointment of the 18 presidential advisors will push the wage budget for the advisors up by Shs 28.5bn. By the time he was sworn-in last year for his fifth elective presidential term, Museveni had 141 advisors. He drafted in four former ministers who lost the February 2016 elections. The 18 new advisors will be appointed on ministerial terms, joining another 12 who were previously appointed on similar terms” (Kaaya, 2017).

If progression only means massive amount of cronies put into his sphere of influence, than the Republic should be booming. With the patronage and the extended surplus civil servants with portfolios, that does not even know the agencies beneath or the toil of their reach. That the Presidential Advisors are former MPs, former Permanent Secretaries or just people who has an old promise from the old man with the hat. Who knows really?

Certainly, he should be the most enlighten president and the one who should have the most balanced approach to the state, if all of the Presidential Advisors was educated professionals in their respected fields. Well, we know it is not so, or cannot be so, since he has not appointed 145 specialists. Rather it being cronies who are there for their paycheck and their brown envelope before returning home for their daily bread.

President Museveni is either a genius or gone bonkers. Why? Well, if he is wise, than it is because let all of his advisors spit poetry of knowledge into his earholes and that in-depth understand of the subject are understood by the old man, before his decisions are made. I doubt it is so, more like his own arrogance and struggle to find suitable positions for his cronies. He creates more positions instead of building institutions or departments, even agencies who actually are technical and advance. Because why bother? They might undermine the intelligence of the President and his merry counsel.

That President Museveni has no quarrel or any issues concerning this growing amount of advisors is mere a reflection of his patronage and wish to control. Not to listen or gain knowledge, if so the 145 already appointed should or could give the man a moment or two with brilliance. Neither is happening and the status quo, is that this sort is mismanagement and waste of state resources is only to keep the loyal subjects close to Museveni, not to build a better state. Peace.

On Hon. Nsereko: he is an Imposter of the Yellow, not so “independent” apparently!

nsereko-luuka-09-10-2016

The former National Resistance Movement Member of Parliament in the Buganda Caucus cannot be seen as anything else than a skeleton of political figure after the reason actions by the man. He has been in the 9th Parliament into squabble with his mother-party NRM as he fought against it and even won as NRM Rebel MPs like Hon. Muhammed Nsereko tried to find a new “home”. That ended up sort-of being affiliated with the Forum for Democratic Change as he was running as an “Independent”. Nsereko had to take his rebel case all the way to Uganda’s Supreme Court and won over the State of Uganda there in midst of October 2015. Something that is just a year ago, now!

So after winning a seat in Parliament again, he ran wild on trying to upset the NRM rule of the August House of Parliament with ousting Hon. Jacob Oulanyah, he tried to do what the wifes of Hon. Oulanyah does, without making it apparently because Oulanyah came this time. Hon. Nsereko wanted to be the Deputy Speaker and be the underling of Hon. Rebecca Kadaga.

That was flawed from the get-go as the NRM Machine was working overtime and giving money for new suits and such to bribe the MPs into submission and get the MPs that Mzee trusted to follow the guidelines of his MPs. So Hon. Nsereko who tried with his posing as the Opposition candidate and the man to stand for FDC, DP and UPC to be the man for them to have, as the August House of Parliament deserved his service and his work ethic to keep the Parliament in order. That was something that wasn’t working as the service rendered from the bribed MPs came into order and his candidacy as flawed it could be.

After this and just being an MP and working as normal, even as the wealthy business man, who even these days have proven his wealth. He even showed up on the Independence Celebration of Mzee at Luuka District all smiling with the First Lady Janet Museveni and all of his noble clan of dignitaries. Where they we’re celebrating the independence in the name of greed and glory of the Movement.

So when he did so and when this week started as the man under Buganda Caucus was expecting money the Caucus to silence the Opposition and even trying to persuade the MPs there to go for working for the Ruling Regime. This was happening as an event we’re given directly from the State House 500m shillings. That we’re partly directed by the “Independent” man Hon. Nsereko who had been smiling in Luuka. The proof is right there…

Nsereko 19.05.2016

If you cannot believe it now, it is right there and visible like a the sun is shining. The former NRM Rebel, isn’t really a NRM Rebel as his cash-cow and money hungry soul who owns a parts of Football Club and even apartments’ in Zambia doesn’t’ want to divorce himself from NRM, that is just a play of guards and to look good in public. In reality with all of connections and with the knowledge that you need to know people and grease people to do business; the Hon. Nsereko must use the entire extended network for his personal gain. As he did in the Opposition, something he really wasn’t when you look into it.

So the pictures of his acts, his words against the Defiance and the Jobless Brotherhood another way of seeing that he isn’t really a opposition or wishing to be so. He we’re just there because he rebelled and now he tries to get back into the mother-party and good graces. Therefore smiling with Janet on the Independence Day and acting all sort of giddy while the affiliated with the FDC during the campaigns who he supposed to represented we’re detained, house-arrested and silenced at that moment. Though Nsereko we’re initially running as an “independent” because of his past aggression and misbehaving in Parliament: so this independent candidate isn’t that independent as he now could just become Yellow again if he was honest with himself and his stature; though that is in the mercy of Mzee and his NRM Electoral Commission.

We can now see his true Yellow colours, they are waving as flags in the wind. There are no questions that the rebel isn’t as rebellious as his greed and guts are more important that standards and development. His own personal interests and wealth is more important, just like the monies for cars, expenses and extra engorgements through the Parliament as MP is vastly more peculiar to him than delivering any policy or change that matters for his Buganda Constiuency. Trust me, he will only be a puppet for the NRM machine in this 10th Parliament, that is why he is there, though in fake pretence as a “Independent” because nothing about this man is “independent”. He is currently a stooge under the portfolio of Mzee. Peace!

My letter to Hon. Nsereko on recent outburst on NBS towards the Jobless Brotherhood!

mpigs-uganda

Dear Muhammad Nsereko, whoever you are affiliated with and assemble with; I write to you today. Because of your words that you uttered on NBS TV Uganda yesterday and needs to be put some reflection on. Your wealth and continued terms in the Parliament makes you blind the reality. First your own words, than my take on you Honoarable!

Hon. Muhammad Nsereko on NBS TV Yesterday:

“This is not new in Parliament. These are young men being given ‘something’. My immediate reaction was, ‘ohh, I saw this coming’. Pigs were thrown in front of Prophet Muhammad’s house several times. All this is happening because I didn’t support defiance. Most bloggers writing about me are Besigye apologists. They are just being used by Besigye,” (…) “These people’s next move is ‘occupy Parliament’, I know everything. If the demonstration was about greedy Parliamentarians, wouldn’t it be us? I think not, because we don’t represent that category.”

Yep, you’re a brutal speaker and direct as always. That you are connecting Norman Tumuhimbise and his Jobless Brotherhood with the Forum for Democratic Change former Presidential Candidate Besigye; Mr. Tumuhimbise has been arrested, attacked and gotten abducted for his campaign against the NRM. This is the same as Besigye, which is what they have in common Hon. Nsereko. The reason why you are not in the NRM anymore is both of your own implications and also because you know Kampala is hostile to NRM. Therefore to win your seat your alliance with others to get your place in the National Assembly; so you should be a bit more soft-spoken about the people who has opened their arms to you! Looks like to me that you don’t represent Kampala but only yourself and selfish rich interests.

There been reports before you we’re detained in 2012 that you we’re flashing a FDC sign as you reacted to your stances in Parliament and becoming parts of rebellious MPs of the 9th Parliament. Still, that doesn’t sound real. If you don’t believe my sayings, it is something you can look at when there is a report about you in 2013; that says this:

“Politically, Nsereko has been representing NRM in a constituency of Kampala central which has always been very hostile to NRM.  His support base has been made of frustrated Kampala dwellers that are fed up of NRM due to numerous reasons ranging from the challenging economic situations, the high taxes, rent, Jennifer Musisi’s hostile activities of the KCCA’ constant evictions” (…) “Economically speaking; while his accomplices who have been surviving on proceeds from parliament are definitely going to find the economic aspect to find life difficult to cope with, Nsereko is instead likely to enjoy himself. This is because he is known to be very wealthy with financial connections at home and abroad” (…) “Those close to him claim that he is one man who can seal a deal of a million dollar in just two hours. But the NRM might counter this economic advantage by using the money laundering law to stop the foreign dime from flowing to him. And indeed at the height of his disagreement with his party leadership, Nsereko was arrested and detained in crane bank for obtaining huge unexplainable amounts of money” (News.ugo.co.ug, 2013).

So you are one of the men with massive amounts of monies in Crane Bank, maybe you can become their investor? Your connections can really change guards as you have gone from being NRM to become who you are now. That you are hostile to KCCA and Dr. Musisi is not alone, maybe she is stifling your millions and secret agreements that secure your funding and wealth as the connections are used establish yourself.

You had to be kicked out of NRM, still yesterday you are an apologist for the Movement still. Honourable you have just used your place after the ceased trial to cater to opposition while still being loyal to NRM. As I am sure all your rich connections are and still are. Your wealth has to come from the ruling regime and not from dust. With this in mind what you did in 2015 we’re not a surprise:

“Serbian Simo Dubajic has brought his colourful 4-year association with SC Victoria University to an end after sanctioning the sale of the Uganda Premier League club to the Kampala Central Member of Parliament (MP) Muhammad Nsereko in a major takeover (70%)” (…) “MP Nsereko is one of the richest MPs in the country with sources close to youthful legislator intimating to us that Nsereko has got huge investments in the Zambian capital Lusaka and St. Livingstone a suburb in Zambia” (Muneza, 2015).

Now that the foreign wealth in Zambia, owning a Football Club and other unknown wealth as you have already lately showed of your court while going to Parliament; shows how far away from the average man you have become. You’re the NRM Elite, the man who represents the ones who has earned on your allegiance towards the Movement. Therefore your defense of yourself and the acts of greed in Parliament is not shocking.

It would be shocking if you stood by the principals of honesty and accountability. Than you have had to show your wealth in public and not just flaunt it like you do now. Hon. Nsereko you’re a wealthy man in gold and silver, also ambition, but not in respect. You’re tactless and dishonest. You play games for your own gain and not caring about the ones you represent in Kampala.

nsereko-money

Clearly your wealth is your pride, but Hon. Nsereko you might have your wealth and cash-flow more than I can ever dream of. But with that you have to kiss the ring of NRM even when you outside of the Party. You’re a loyal dog to the ‘Old Man with the Hat’ as you know this is the only way to survive the businesses and valuable estates. You can think your Teflon and has the power with your riches. But Hon. Nsereko it is borrowed and when the time is it, it might go into the wind as quickly as your raised it.

That you now trying to connect innocent Norman Tumuhimbise of Jobless Brotherhood with the FDC and Besigye; they are both opposition and work for the same cause getting rid of the draconian regime of Museveni. Still, the reality is that they are only working for the same, but are not run by either or. Hon. Nsereko tries to connect all kind of demonstrations on Besigye and blame him for the difficult political climate. Instead of seeing that people doesn’t’ always work on the same cause together. Even if the NRM has to connect the MPs in USA to a seminar to get them benefitted and bribed in line, as much as the “training” at Kyankwanzi after the election is supposed to do the same. There is supposed to be the same between Tumuhimbise and Besigye. If you can find the missing MoU between FDC and Jobless Brotherhood I wish you the best in your duck-hunt hon. Nsereko!

In 2015 in an interview Mr. Tumuhimbise said this:

“None: One [Mbabazi] whose wife is currently admitted has been part of the past regime and I do not think he can change what was there. The other [Besigye] said he will not come back provided Kiggundu is the Chairman Electoral Commission, he is now back. Surprisingly, If Muntu had gone through, I would be with him running around the whole country, it’s a personal opinion though” (Tukel, 2015).

So Hon. Nsereko before you pick your words knows about the ones you describe, but the wealth has blinded you. The leader of Jobless Brotherhood would have campaigned for Gen. Mugisha Muntu and not even Besigye, the man who apparently using him for his cause. Not like you are being used by the Movement for their cause to look like Opposition. While you in reality are NRM in clothes of opposition just like Hon. Beti Kamya and so many others. Can’t you just talk to Dr. Tanga Odoi and others trade with them like Gen. Otafiire and then you might get a place back again where you rich soul belongs.

Do you know something else that I agrees with Mr. Tumuhimbise said in 2015:

“(Journalist questions him) Rate the current government in one word?

Norman answers: It is taken up by greed!” (Tukel, 2015).

Hon. Nsereko he is speaking about you and your kind who buys football clubs instead of good governance. He describes your disrespectful behaviour and your trading graces to gain popularity. You don’t care about your constituency Hon. Nsereko as you are addressing the Jobless Brotherhood this way. Like Action Aid said in their stats that 62% of all Youth between 20-31 years in Uganda that year in 2015. I am sure honourable that the numbers are most likely the same today. Surely some of the unemployed youth that Tumuhimbise is parts of his demonstrations, as much as there are even more in of them in the Central Kampala.

You are the greedy man that Tumuhimbise is acting upon and that Besigye wants accountability in Parliament and in Government. Something that might look into your portfolio and your connections Honourable Nsereko; that is why you are connected to men you don’t want to disclose and at the same time you want to attack the men who are not like you!

That should you think about if you ever read these humble words I have written to you. Peace.

President might re-appoint ministerial appointments rejected by Parliament (Youtube-Clip)

“It has emerged that the president may re-appoint some of the ministers who were dropped by Parliament’s Appointments Committee last week over concerns about their competence. The Government Chief Whip, confirmed the development to NTV’s” (NTV Uganda, 2016).

Uganda: New Cabinet List Out (Youtube-Clip)

Opinon: Museveni’s growing ‘royal’ court

Parliament Uganda

As of today the Executive, the 7th Term of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni that started now recently after a rigged election. There been selected 31 Ministers, 49 Minster of State and one Vice President. The total amount of honorable Ministers is 80! The one career that is resurrected as he is the ‘Minster for crocodiles’ Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafiire, the man who lost NRM Primaries this last fall in 2015, and lost again in the General Election in 2016, still he was able to escape and be get brownie points for Mzee.

Hon. Betty Kamya who has defended and attacked Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and Besigye through her campaign, have been also elevated as she run for the Uganda Federal Alliance (UFA), she took over the Minister for Kampala City after Hon. Frank Tumbewaze who is now the Minister for Information, ICT and Communication, a Ministerial Post; that the now gone MP Gen. Jim Muhwezi.

Chris Baryomunsi Quote Daily Monitor

Well, the good news is that Dr. Chris Baryomusi went to the Ministry of State of Housing, went from Health Care, where he said it wasn’t a big deal with the missing Cobalt 60 Teletheraphy machine at Mulago Hospital and the Uganda Cancer Institute, as the Cancer Patients’ would die anyway… So there is some justice in his demoted state into state minister for Housing… the people who has sickness in Uganda should be giddy, but wished that he was out of Parliament as he was so despicable when the Health Care scandal of Mulago came to light!

Well, then there Hon. Simon Lodoko, who for some reason are Minister of State for Ethics and Integrity… who wanted to sack Dr. Stella Nyanzi after her naked crusade after unethical political motivated in April 2016 from Makerere University.

Al Hajji Abdul Nadduli

And you have the wonderful Al-Hajji Abdul Nadduli, the former NRM Vice-Chairmen for the Central Region, gotten the fantastic Ministerial Post that I hope to have one day in my own country; Minister Without Portefolio. He can chill and get the brown-envelope with Ministerial perks and be a secure vote in Parliament as he is a Minister in the Cabinet. If the man ever wants to do crap, and deliver a petition or notion in parliament, it will be a bonus, but he could just relax in Kabalagala or hang out at the ‘Chicken-In’ at Wandegeya.

Well, will not take on more Minister’s even if there more than in enough the Cabinet, as other die-hards and loyalist Gen. Henry Tukumunde aka Money Man of General Elections, got his corrupt hands into a ministry as well, together with other Musevenism ministers like Hon. Sam Kuteesa, Hon. Matia Kasaija, Hon. Adolf Mwesige, Hon. Irene Muloni, Hon. Dr. Elioda Tumwesigye, Hon. David Bhati, Hon. Sarah Ochient Opendi and Hon. Oryem Okello… that I can mention in haste, without caring for their ministries… 9 ministries and ministers, also the First Lady got a bigger role this time Hon. Janet Museveni, she was tired of the Karamoja and not enough funds to take from Northern Uganda Social Action Fund (NUSAF II)…

museveni and his gun

As for the ministers and amount of them, the Executive are hiring more loyal people around him, he want a giant royal court and be midlevel level, as he wants to be the king on the Iron Throne, with the AK-47 and have whispers from every corner as he wants to control all men of his kingdom. President Museveni, are hiring and hiring men who are loyal to him and men who went as independent, as they lost the NRM Primaries… but he still want them around as they are good people for him and will not sell him out, as long as they are kept fed. Take a look at the numbers!

Museveni currently has 116 advisors in the Office of the President; but the statement suggests this number is to rise to 121 this financial year. This is 39 more than the number of advisors the president had at the beginning of his fourth elective presidential term in 2011” (…)”For instance, after the March 2015 cabinet reshuffle, former Attorney General Peter Nyombi and former Finance, Planning and Economic Development Minister Maria Kiwanuka joined the long list of presidential advisors who are former ministers. Some of the former ministers who are advisors include Gerald Ssendaula, Ham Mulira Mukasa, Ezra Suruma, Namirembe Bitamazire, Beatrice Wabudeya and Gen Salim Saleh. Others are former prime ministers Kintu Musoke and Apolo Nsibambi, former vice president Specioza Wandira Kazibwe, Dr James Makumbi and Muhammed Mayanja who were ministers in the 1990s” (Kaaya, 2016).

This proves that men who are loyal and silent without going into opposition, can expect to get a unelected position by serving President Museveni, as he likes loyalty and knowledge that him paying them keeps them close, as he knows the fellows who are corrupted by him and wants his corrupted behavior gone, will not be close; they will be silenced. The strange news from today was this:

“A further scrutiny of the list also found that former envoys Francis Butagira and Ibrahim Mukiibi are also presidential advisors. Two of the listed 116 advisors such as Hajji Badru Wegulo and Besweri Mulondo are dead” (Kaaya, 2016).

Museveni Kenya Speech 2016

2 men are dead that are currently on the Presidential Advisory list of Uganda, that is explanatory of level of scrutiny the governance of Central government needs, the need for restructure and need for change from the Musevenism that everything circles around him and his visions, as they are now so corrupted and so owned by own personal gain… instead they are now all indebted to Museveni, instead of trying to build better government and ministries that serves the people, the citizens, instead they serve Museveni and wants to be in his court and get his word. That is why they want to be hired, instead of actually making a genuine difference and using the state affairs and state ministries to show accountability for state funds and their pledges. They are instead there all to serve President Museveni, and that is not a healthy functioning state, the government is paying for the bloated ministries, ministers, members of parliament, and all the loyal men that President Museveni keeps in his court, as the numbers of men on the State House Payroll, is also staggering, but that is for another day! This is just the official hiring, not the ones that serving the MPs, Ministries and State Ministers… Peace.

PS: I wonder who eats on the dead-men’s salaries, because surely somebody is catching in on the paychecks of the fallen Museveni soldiers… Think about that for a minute.
