Opinion: Tumwebaze thinks people are naïve… [on succession of the “high above”]

“The time for NRM to declare an alternative presidential candidate will come. You will be shocked that NRM has a pool of bale leaders”Frank Tumwebaze

That the Minister and High-Ranking Official within the National Resistance Movement, Frank Tumwebaze thinks people are stupid. At least think they are naïve and cannot see the realities as they are.

The NRM is built around the sole candidacy of the President. His words are law and his directives are the gospel. He is both the salvation, the redemption and the punisher. All in one package. It is just like the Minister doesn’t know this.

Frankie Boy might think this is brilliant to say in the future there will be another candidate. In the future there will be another Presidential Candidate from the Movement. That will only happen when the current one stops breathing.

When the Minister speaks of pool of leaders. There been plenty with ambition to beat and overcome the President. That is well known, there been Besigye, Mbabazi, Bukenya, Muntu and so forth. There are plenty who been part of the Movement but gone tired of the Sole Candidate and left the building.

The honourable minister knows all of this but acts like it’s not a thing. We all know, that the son is aiming for the throne. Muhoozi wants to become the second-generation President. Just like a royalty. While, Tumwebaze thinks of others, however, he cannot mention him. We know that he has gotten higher and higher roles. That is why the NRM is awaiting his time.

The President is the sole candidate for life. There will be no other as long as his alive. Unless, the army makes a coup d’état. Until then, will the President be golden oldie Yoweri. That is just the way things is. There is no denying in that.

Frank might think he can play with words, because in some sense its true. However, indefinitely it will be the “High Above”. The NRM will not switch away from him. That will be seen as treason. If the honourable had said something else, he would be on the chopping block or become an independent.

The time for a new presidential candidate in the NRM is only when Yoweri stops breathing. Until then, he runs the shop and owns the shop. It is Yoweri’s shop. That is just the mere reality and Frank cannot run away from that.

There will be no sudden changes of leadership here. Museveni is going down the Mugabe route. The indefinite ruler, the survivor and advanced age overlord of the Republic. The party will not change that. He will not suffer the humiliation of seeing Amama or Gilbert on the throne. No, there will be none of that.

Succession will not happen through protocol, but through order of life. Meaning, only when the lifer is gone and vigils in Parliament have been held. In the meanwhile, we can play footsie with the idea, but there is no real challenge. The sole candidate is for life and no one else will dare to question that. If they do, then they are gone in a hot minute. Peace.

Uganda: Reclaiming our County and Kin (ROCK) – Press Statement (01.07.2020)

Opinion: Kabuleta, the Prince without a Kingdom

“I’m the prince of the city, I studied Machiavelli” – J. Cole on ‘Villuminati’ (2013)

Today, the slick city pastor Joseph Kabuleta, the former journalist and now pastor is now becoming a independent presidential candidate in the race for the General Elections in 2021. Kabuleta is known for his writings and his insightful wit. The man knows how to trigger the authorities and went behind bars because of his statements in print on social media.

The pastor knows this game and surely has followed. The man behind the Watchman Ministries, the man who annoyed the President and got charged for doing so.

He has gone from writing in the New Vision as a sports journalist to now become a Presidential Candidate. In the meantime, before he annoyed the President, he kissed the feet of the prophet Elvis Mbonye, so the man knows how to create a show around his persona.

So, what can we expect of Kabuleta?

Well, he can annoy the President and his allies a bit more?

He will put forward petitions and pressure the Electoral Commission. The pastor will be vocal and speak out. This man will not speakeasy. That’s not in him and not his way. I don’t blame him for speaking out. That is all good, but without a constituency and backing. How far will this bring the man?

Yes, Kabuleta is known and his writings on Facebook has been shared. He has poked at the Leopards Anus and went behind bars for doing so. However, is that all it takes to run for the Presidency?

Wouldn’t this man be better off trying to vie for Member of Parliament (MP) or Local Councillor in one of the divisions in Kampala. I know that the prestige and the honourable position is the one of the Presidency. Even if the Pastor wants to be knighted and become the crowned prince.

The man is allowed and can seek the highest office. Kabuleta can do this and as he see fit himself. However, it will humiliate him, and he will suffer. There will be no positive returns and only more pain. He could have taken an easier route to become a representative, but he chooses this one.

I could wish him all the best, but the road his taken will cost. The ones before has seen it and he will get the same. The drill is there, and the challenge is enormous. The man can write and speak, but can he muster support on this scale at this point? I don’t know but doubt that. Unless, he gets divine intervention to save his soul and his campaign. Peace.

Opinion: Muhoozi needs to watch the Firefly episode called ‘Jaynestown’

It’s my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of him was one kind of sumbitch or another” – Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly, episode 4 – 2002).

Sometimes reality isn’t far from fiction, not even far from science-fiction. Yes, in some sense President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni could been deemed a hero and living legend. Yes I say that, but with hesitation, because he misused his offerings to the state and forgotten also the reasons for a fundamental change. Its all self-centred egotistic military government that keeps a choke-hold of the Republic.

If this was early 1990s and he had retired, he would have been seen and looked like a hero for plenty. Than, the President would have left a legacy, which wasn’t only self-styled President for Life. Who misused his time in office and squandered his potential. However, that has all been lost in the game of being for life president.

Why do I state all this, well because this:

The greatest military heroes in Africa’s history. Generals Museveni, Saleh, Rwigyema and Kagame. They achieved the impossible. We should build statues in their honour in every town in Uganda and Rwanda” Kainerubaga Muhoozi on Twitter on the 4th June 2020

I’m only looking into Museveni, because that’s enough for one piece. Muhoozi should watch or rewatch Firefly episode number 4 ‘Jaynestown’. This episode could significantly put forward why people are putting up statutes. They are doing it for the creation of heroes. Jayne of the Firefly crew had become a hero in Canton, because he robbed the owner of the corporation on the planet and dropped his fortune to the mudders there.

Well, let me just say, they made him a hero on the assumption, that he did that on his free will. Not on the ironic loss of the big-bank in the sky as he was fleeing the robbery with his ally. An ally he dumped with the money. This was a robbery gone wrong and the mudders got the wealth. They made him a hero because of it.

In the same sense, Muhoozi wants to make Museveni a statute and a hero today. This statute will not be put up in Canton and for the honour of Jayne made by the Mudders. The statutes Muhoozi speaks of is his father and the one who fought with him. It’s like Muhoozi forgets everything he has done since the Bush War. Also, the questions by the legitimacy of that war itself.

Especially, since he has not lived up the promises and reasons for going to civil war. Museveni knows this, Muhoozi knows this, but they will both act a fool. Since, that is water under bridge, but they want to celebrated as heroes still. Every heroic moment has to be lived through again. Since, this is the moment that transpired to make them kings. This is the reality.

Muhoozi wants to make the legacy of his father into the upper echelon. I cannot blame the son for praising his father. That comes naturally for him and is obligated. As if he would ever stand a chance of succession. He needs his father to be remembered as a hero.

However, Captain Mal sums up what plenty of people thinks of people made statutes of. That should be a worrying sign for Muhoozi, but don’t expect him to listen to anyone. He rather send people like me behind bars and than claim superiority after. Because, I am the dumb-dumb for actual leadership and taxation with representation. Not a military government overpowering the public at any given moment.

Maybe its those 26 guns he wants saluted at every statute in the Republic. Peace.

Project Muhoozi is clearly a thing…

Well, surprise, surprise that the high above wants to handpick his successor in the Republic. Like the son is the only one who can rule after him. That the President thinks so and the Kitchen Cabinet accepts is all natural at this point. Because Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has decided everything since 1986 and therefore, they are all eating on his behalf.

This thing has surfaced before, General David Sejusa aka Tinye aka Tinyefuza revealed this letters back in early 2013. That after the President finally retires, his son will take over the commando and be His Excellency. Like Muhoozi Kainerubaga is the only one fitting the role of the Presidency after him.

What is striking about this is that they are treating the Presidency and the Highest Office like a monarchy. They are thinking because its within the bloodline, he should reign automatically. Not that its a need for vetting, party protocol or anything. Since it comes from the high above and that’s why its a thing.

Seemingly, the President will not push for his wife Janet, like Mugabe tried to or planned too. Even if she’s a minister for the second time. Its like they can find ways to manoeuvrer things for themselves. To push their son in the forefront. Surely, their been party lackey’s who wanted to get to the upper-echelon. Some for the will of getting more power, other to show flex and last they deemed itself time for a new broom in the State House. However, Museveni have never made that possible.

The Project Muhoozi has been in the open. Even Muhoozi has started to wear hoodies in public. During the COVID-19 donations and food deliveries have been marked with donations from “friends of Muhoozi”. To top it off, the future King supports several of bloggers, activists online and vloggers. Who all will surely write favourable blogs, make soft-praise videos and on social media platforms. That is why they are getting food from him delivered through Promoter Balaam and “Social Media Coordinator” of NRM with Duncan Abigaba.

Therefore, we know this very well planned. If you gone on social media, been with UoT on Twitter or in a Ugandan Facebook group. Someone will praise the man to skies, his the greatest military commando and government official since Napoleon Bonaparte and so fourth. The greatness of Muhoozi shows no bound, his generosity is endless and that’s why everyone should see that.

If Muhoozi touches something it will turn to gold. He will be grandest and best big-man in history. There is no bound to his strength, mental capacity nor his will to be a ruler. His predetermined by the High Above, the Gods and his we the rest just his underlings. There is no choice, because Muhoozi is the chosen one. The juju is strong with this one, the Empire is rising and Starnet has crashed. He can be the only guy to rule the nation. The public just got to accept that.

This is the sort of thing that will come out and is online. That his the great man, the lover, the husband and the son of the President, who is the next in line. Like there is no one else in the Republic who can take the mantle.

Well, there is plenty of big-men waiting in line. There is plenty civilians who has the ability and capacity to takeover from Museveni. However, his thin-skinned man who doesn’t want to loose the cookie-jar and wants his family to eat from this plate. Because, he knows what happens to the families who are cut off from it. This family will be even more, as there might be inquires and investigation into the massive wealth gained in office. That would be righteous.

But… but… if he gets his son on the throne, then he will not question that. Because he eats from the same plate and has the same power. There will be no difference. Just a man who has been in the chambers of powers and been close to the top all of his life. A man whose seen how conning and actions made by his father. He will do the same or even amp it more up. Since, Muhoozi has been vocal online and shown a fierce tone for a Presidential Advisor. He gotten away with it, since his the son.

Project Muhoozi is a thing and its alive. They are slowly enforcing it. Step by step. What was shocking to them. Was that Gen. Sejusa leaked it to the press and it was supposed to be in the fringes and made normal. Now they are doing that, they are normalizing his presence and his stature.

Muhoozi claims he doesn’t have an ambition, but that is a lie. He wouldn’t done everything his father wants and using the COVID-19 for political capital. As they will remember he gave them beans and posho. That is the reality.

This ship hasn’t sailed. It is on-going and its a reality. That the State House thinks they can do this and get away with it like its a monarchy. When its not… There are plenty of kings in the Republic, but the highest office in the land isn’t. That’s why its a President and not a KING. Peace.

Statement by the People Power Movement on the IMF Rapid Credit Facility Announced on 6th May 2020 (09.05.2020)

Opinion: Don’t let Mzee pimp a second round of debt relief

Back in the day, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in the end of the 1990s the World Bank let the Republic of Uganda the opportunity to join their Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) to cut the debt of the Republic. However, even with the massive amount of debt relief done in 1998 and later never stopped him from taking up more debt.

That is why the amount of interests paid on every single budget is debt burden, which is created by the President himself and his extensive cronyism. The President has ensured that the state owns so much money, while he stills continues the drill by financing half of it by more debt. Which has been method the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and Mzee has used in the recent years.

That is why such a big amount of funds is going into interest payments. Also, why the Republic are going in a negative spiral, while the lack of domestic revenue isn’t following the projections of growth that the state always promises.

With the knowledge of this, as the President is asking for a debt relief now. His using the Coronavirus or COVID-19. The whole world are into a recession because of this. It is the perfect smokescreen. The President had the 2000s and 2010s to fix issues, but instead the plunge the economy anyway. He just need an excuse for a bailout.

Last time it was Universal Primary Education, a empty campaign promise and now there are plenty of dilapidated schools. They played and tried to focus on it, but gave it up along the way. Because, doing this properly would actually cost time and effort. The President and his big convoy would actually have invested more, than they wanted too. More promising spending on proxy-wars, than on proper education for everyone.

So, knowing that the Multi-National Organizations, Bretton-Woods Organizations and donors gave way to the Uganda in between the late 1990s and early 2000s. They offered billions in various of schemes, not only HPIC and Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP). This has been done already and still the state is bound by loans and grants to function its government. Therefore, the bullet of debt relief has been wasted.

The amount of US Dollars spent on the debt relief earlier in the reign of Museveni. The Head of State has misused this in the past. Not like he will change now. He has used the system to pimp his budgets and his wealth. His enriched himself and his cronies. While the Republic is still poor and the revenue isn’t growing like the economic recovery of the 1990s said it should have done. If the cure of the past would have worked, than the need for debt relief now would be unnecessary.

In 2020, the Republic shouldn’t get debt relief. It will be only spoils for the elites and the cronies around the President. It will be used buying tear-gas and SUVs. The WaBenzi will eat the spoils and only give away beans to the ones in need.

That Museveni says the continent needs debt relief. He means that himself needs it now. Even if his a wealthy guy in an impoverished republic. A republic he has run for three decades. Which already got special treatment and had a controlled Consultative Group. So, its not like this man hasn’t pimped the system already. He has tricked it and promised to juice up vehicle, but instead continue to run it to the ground. Hoping he could trick some new leaders to do the same mistake. Trusting him and his “high above” leadership.

They already spent millions of dollars to cut of the debt of the Republic under his control. The leadership is the same and they will misuse this if they get it again. When he had the opportunity to use it the last time. He instead wasted it and has ensured the state is more addicted to loans. That is why he hopes someone else can bail him out. While his paying ghosts, fake tenders and whatnot.

So, the IMF and World Bank should know this, but they are maybe more afraid of their image, than the result of letting go of some funds. These funds will not help anyone directly out. Only ensure the President longer life in office. This will not help the ones in need. Than he would have already ensured that. Instead his continuing this ballad and serenading the international community. While he hopes that no one knows history.

He has failed the last debt-relief and misused his chance. That is why his continued to grow the debt, addicted to grants and not created a space for more development. Unless, they give the President some handshakes at the State House. This is the way it goes.

The President of the Republic has had all the time since 1986 and we are still here. There are still opposition Members of Parliament who are tortured, there are still lack of free space and militarization of politics. That has never changed, but he hopes nobody notice. That is why he hopes he can pimp the International Community another time. He already did the trick and hope he can get them buzzed by a few buzzwords.

I know for some this is a moment of nostalgia, but for some its deja vu’. We have been here before and we shouldn’t need to repeat the same bad tune, again and again. However, I expect nobody to listen to me. Peace.

Bank of Uganda: Measures to mitigate the economic impact of COVID-19 (20.03.2020)

Opinion: Muhoozi’s entitlement oozes in concern with possible dialogue with Bobi Wine

The Lieutenant General Muhoozi Kainerubaga, the son of the President entitlement has been shown all week. His presence and his stance on social media, as well as his paid handlers to promote the “Project Muhoozi” is a drive to stand as a future candidate. This combined with his sentiment of talks with People Power Movement and Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. Just shows his lack of finesse and understanding of it all.

His grown in the State House, his a Presidential Advisor for Special Operatives and former leader of the Special Force Command. His military training, but has never represented anyone, other than being part of the clan and being next in line to the Ssabagabe of Rwakitura. This is really it. The man should know what troubles, what issues the state has inflicted on Bobi Wine. However, that is not obvious to the man, whose living in a glorified bubble. Certainly either in Kololo or somewhere else in affluent suburbs of Kampala.

Muhoozi should praise the Gods for the reluctant response of Bobi Wine. Bobi Wine could have answered with all guns, he could have retorted with a fierce message. The one scorned by the state is him and his people. He is charged by the state in various of criminal cases, he is charged with treason and awaiting trail for dozens of them. Bobi Wine has been tortured and needed healing, even was blocked for a while to travel to the United States for treatment.

Muhoozi should also not forget all the associates, all the activists behind bars. All the ones who sudden vanished, killed and disappeared. The ones who is close to Bobi Wine get caught and suddenly stop breathing. Because, that is what the state does to them at the moment. Either in the pen or dead. This is the manner of which the state approach him and his people.

Muhoozi when he speaks of war and peace, his father and the agencies around him is in direct warfare against People Power. They are assaulting and directly using all arms of government to oppress and silence them. It is not like Bobi Wine doesn’t know that or doesn’t feel that. Not like he can perform, have meetings or be active. Muhoozi can play a fool, but that’s not cool.

Lt. Gen. Muhoozi is a bubble, a bubble of entitlement and braggadocios flair. That is who he is and seems to be. He got handlers promoting his every breath and former stints. While, the ones rising with popularity is going through hell and fire. The hell and fire created by the state, which let’s the Lt. Gen self-promote himself because of his lineage and not because of anything he has produced or created himself.

Bobi Wine deserves credit for his retort. However, he shouldn’t discuss or participate in talks. Unless, the state changes it ways and the way it oppress his associates. Since, there are to many lives lost, to many behind bars and to many hurt. Just because of association and not even acts of criminality. This is why Muhoozi should think for a little moment, but don’t anticipate that. Since, his is so shielded and highly regarded because the Ssabagabe elevated his stature to the stars.

So, Muhoozi do yourself a favour. If you want to talk peace. Get the commandos and the officers around Bobi Wine to back-down, get the soldiers, LDUs and the police officers to not assault, kill and arrest civilians in association with him. If you do that, then there might be a will. Especially, if the ones killing and torturing civilians get punished in courts of law. That would be even better…

However, Mr. Muhoozi, I know you will never do that. Because, then you would offend the Don. Peace.
