Finance Minister Matia Kasaija letter to UIA ED Jolly Kaguhangire to “Hand-Over Office” (09.07.2018)

More Musevenisms as the cronyism is real!

Danger, danger, be alert, this here will be sinful text. As the sins of the minds and spirit is shown again and again. By the same system and the same lord, nothing is changing only the names on the boards and on the appointments, but the same insignificant attributes continues. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has during the last appointed and re-appointed twice Residential District Commanders, he has also redirected appointments directly at Makerere University and to top it off, he has sacked and re-appointed a Executive Director and board for Uganda Investment Authority (UIA). All of these within days.

What is striking is how the State House is all involved in these matters, how connected the actions of the President and his will is the main factor in the decision made by the state. The government is de facto the President, we all knew this, but with the RDCs, UIA and Makerere, the Ministers and the Ministries, the experts and whatnot’s all have to wait for the blessing from Museveni.

It isn’t weird things are going slow, as the rubber-stamping son-of-a-gun in Entebbe has to deliver the verdict and put his seal on the matter, as he has to validate and secure every single appointment, even the janitors are surely hand-picked by the President. This is the proof of cronyism if there ever is one. The way he has to single-handedly decide and give people merits. After a month of speculation and a claim from Hon. Evelyn Anite that the Executive Director of UIA was corrupt and now the President has re-appointed someone else, while the former ED is challenging the merits of the case. It is really astonishing.

Just like the one day, a new batch of appointments and redeployment of RDCs came about, a day later revealed that some had been dead, one all the way back to 2014. Therefore, kind of hard to be a RDC when your deceased. That is why, on the 15th June 2018 the new list came into circulation and people started to speculate. However, by 24th June 2018, the RDCs fraternity had to be calm down await new orders, as the list was changed and by 25th June 2018, Uganda Media Centre had to write similar to calm it down. It just shows the madness in system and the erratic behaviour has consequences on the ground.

Jolly Kaguhangire, the now former ED of UIA is the crown-example of cronyism in the time of Museveni. The relative of the First Lady Janet Museveni. Who has been the ED since 2017 and now fired in mid-2018. Certainly, the stand-off, the whistleblower to the IGG and the whole farce will continue and persist as the family squabble will hit the headlines. There aren’t anything, which that will stop that at this point. The UIA is used as pawn in a game and the reality is that the Musevenism is the end-game.

This here will not end with the squabble between the board of directors, neither the IGG or even the Minister Anite who has used her role as the one with oversight to look into the activity of the UIA. But this will end with either ruthless activity, re-appointment or even being posted somewhere else, the ED of UIA is a family member, she will in the end be shielded. However, this shows why the family sagas and the interference are dropping the level of integrity and transparency, as they are obliged to be in-charge. Not on merits or skills, but because of their entitlement to the first family.

This is cronyism at its worst, where the ones either in family or loyal to the President get favours, either as RDCs or as Executive Director of some sort of government Authority. It is just a play of games with the taxpayers, with the citizens and the ones hurt is the innocent, while the elites created by the President continues to merge and surge. There isn’t anything that they will not do to get the cash-in-full. Peace.

Uganda: Office of the President – Press Release concerning RDCs Fraternity (24.06.2018)

2 Weeks 2 Go: Let’s add a Supplementary Schedule No. 3 for the Financial Year 2017/18!

Today, the Parliament approved a Supplementary Schedule No. 3. for the Financial Year of 2017/2018, which is ending in eleven days or 30th June. That means the Parliament approved a new added funds to needed government expenditure and spending between 19th June to 30th June 2018. This means this funds that are approved are supposed to cover until the Financial Year of 2018/2019. That budget wasn’t approved long ago either. Therefore, it is hard to take this sort of business serious.

That the Parliament has accepted a third supplementary schedule for covering expenses until the next Financial Year. This was accepting 377bn shillings or $ 97m United States Dollars. If you shouldn’t question this, then you shouldn’t question anything the state does. Because this is really questionable activity.

How come the need of these amounts of money? Why wasn’t this covered on the Supplementary Schedule No. 2 for the Financial Year? Because if the Ministry of Defense and others who needs the added funds was serious. They would have covered this and made sure to have the funds. This is making the daily supplement 34 billion shillings for whatever purpose they professed. But it is fishy this late to add. Especially this big amount of money. Are they trying to cover the expenses for the recent by-elections?

It is hard to believe the necessity, unless they have trouble with the water at the State House. Needs more Presidential Handshakes and secure other private deals of the President. Because they need to cover 34 billion shillings each day. That should boggle your mind.

This is on top of the 1.3 trillion shillings that was put in the budget. Meaning the 1.3 billion shillings wasn’t enough. They we’re not able to plan the spend of defense in the FY 2017/18. Does that mean the recently established Budget for Financial Year of 2018/19 needs to billions too? Because the state didn’t have the capacity to plan or reconfigure the spending of other sectors?

This means the state needs the 1,677 billion shillings on the Defense in this Financial Year. That should also show how much of the state spends on this.

But I feel I am naive if these Number 3 funds getting used for food and other needed equipment for the military. Would be less shocked if it went to a By-Election or even bill collectors, that are knocking on the State House doors. Since they have been waiting for their invoice to be accepted and get a payout on the outstanding debt of the state towards them.

This here is just weird adding a supplementary funds just mere two weeks before the Financial Year end. That would be like adding more funds for Christmas Bonus just mere last Sunday before Christmas Eve. That is what they are doing. It is weird and cannot stop saying it. Peace.

Resident District Commanders Re-Shuffle: A list of Honourable Mentions!

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has professed that the Resident District Commanders are lazy and useless. Even so he has now reshuffled them again and have newly promoted and some switched. I will not look into all of them, but here is a few honourable mentions.

Salim Komakech has been posted in Kagadi District from 23 August 2016 until 13th June 2018, when he was moved to Apac District.

Hellen Pulkol goes from being the RDC in Moroto to be appointed in Abim District.

Alijong Modest goes from being the RDC in Nebbi to be appointed in Nakapiririt district.

Elijah Madoi goes from being the RDC in Namutumba to be appointed in Butaleja district.

Samuel Odong goes from Uganda National Youth Council and get appointed to become RDC of Kaberamaido

Moses Mugweri, the former deputy RDC of both Makindye Division in Kampala and Namayingo gets promoted into the role as RDC in Adjumani District.

James Musoke, he is the former NRM Flagbearer for the LC3 Elections in Bugiri, the now former Deputy RDC of Tororo have been appointed RDC in Kayunga District.

Former Musoke Kintu is appointed to be RDC of Sembabule District. He is a former Prime Minister until 1999. Therefore, he get’s appointed a local leadership role for his services to the President.

Journalist turned RDC, former Mitooma District Aharikundira Africano, have been reaffirmed as the RDC for Nakaseke District.

These are the ones I caught an eye for in the mix. Surely I missed someone special. If I did, please comment. Because it is always interesting to see, how the NRM Cronies are pushed around and re-appointed, now and then. Peace.

#UGBudget18: Museveni – Was this a budget speech?

I don’t know where start or where to finish. As I am not a tool of propaganda and here to make the President look like super-star with a brilliant mind. Warning the media, banning Police Bond for Killers and all other spats of nonsense, which has nothing to do with the budget. It is just like he has defend himself. As President, he even attacked MPs and their attitude. They were ATMs to their voters, something he is and been called himself. He even recently tried to bribe his MP into position in Rukungiri. So that the President has short-term memory is evident.

You know he is in self-hostile territory, when one of the biggest donors and on of the biggest media owners Aga Khan gets a warning. Surely, the President cannot handle journalism and only care about praise. He cannot manage that people are looking into the growing debt. As this budget alone is 10 trillion back-pay of loans of the 32 trillions spent. While there is shortfall and growing deficit and the donor funds are still dwindling. Therefore, the need for loans to cover the shortfall is needed. So what the President is creating is a debt-trap. He can say he managed that since he used 27 guns, but different to blow former-leadership into oblivion and actually being able to repay your debt.

I am just awaiting the salute and the simple minded changes he is progressing into middle-income country, as the President is showing less intent of doing anything. He just talking about nothing and everything. Quoting the bible and acting holier than the pope, while warning everyone else. Not that it is securing anything. He will secure it all, as he is the man who has the answers. If this is getting boring, is that he has done this for 32 years and counting. And has not changed, other than his face and tenure of hair on his head.

It is like he doesn’t care and just say whatever that is on his mind. No one will fact-check or really check the relevance, because why mind. Its a deluded old man, who has been so long in power, that the ones going against are either in jail or possibly monitored by the sleeping police officers his been talking about. He is again blaming the mindset of Ugandans. Because there is never his fault. He has just been running the enclave and people gotten lazy, awaiting handouts. Not like he has delivered any of his pledges, built institutions or prosperous organizations for the citizens. That is just his lack of mindset and work ethic.

Therefore, there is no need to really dig deep into the speech. It is mere facade, a mere forged mirage of utter nonsense. A speech rampant of lies and warnings. If your a journalist or MP, you should feel offended. Because he expect to be praised, while your supposed to carry the nonsense from him.

The saddest part is that he takes no responsibility, that he has no accountability or no common sense. That this man just continuing to utter these words, like a word-salad of mockery of intelligence. While expecting that the spinning-machine of his party, his spokespersons and friendly media will make him look a giant. They will eat the crap out of it and make it look like gold, but its only fools gold. Not worth the bling its made off, better to buy a Rollex in Wandegeya, it will at least fill your tummy for a moment. Because the fools gold will be worthless and just ready for the bin.

President Museveni has no cards to play or nothing to say that changes the narrative. Only 1986ing the world and hoping he can get away with it. However, the debt trap should worry him. Nevertheless, it is the next generation that will pay-back it and he will be dead by then. Peace.
