Opinion: Jajja should just bite the bullet…

All of you are crying that Government money does not reach you. The mistake is on your side. With the bullets that NRM sent for you to shoot, you focus on the wrong people. You vote people to Parliament who cannot help you” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 10th April 2019 at Kampala Women’s Day Celebration

If you would ever wonder if Bosco, the Jajja of the Republic would show mercy or care for thoughts, which is not his own. Put statements like these on the wall. As it shows his shallow mind and his real motivation.

For President Museveni, the Multiparty Democracy was never the ideal. It was always the motive to make the Republic into the vision of the Movement System. Because through that he could control it and own it.

Yoweri has been constant with this and it shows all the time. He is steady on this vision and the move to silence, stop or even hurt the ones that crosses his way. That is what the President does, that is why the President says, he doesn’t give funds too or says even he has taken districts out of the maps. As the public voted for the wrong party. This is something the President has said in the past. Therefore, what he said today isn’t new, just another quote to his narrow-minded world-view.

He blames the public for not getting state services, because they voted for the wrong people. The wrong people, meaning the opposition like Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and FDC MPs in the Kampala Metropolitan Area. The MPs from Kampala there are 4 MPs from FDC, 4 MPs Independent and 1 MP from the Democratic Party (DP). Therefore, the Capital City have voted for everything else, but NRM MPs.

That is what he said today. He did this, as he thinks people have forgotten how little he cared for even giving the public to chance to vote in the General Election of 2015. However, I do and I know didn’t give them much way. That is why the public didn’t regard much for the elections in Wakiso or Kampala during the last elections.

So, Mr. President, your showing your disregard, not only for multiparty democracy, but also for Statesmanship and grace. Instead of showing mercy and solitude to their acts of choosing other people, than your hand-picked cronies. They voted for other representatives, which was their choice. They just happen to other, than the ones who you saw fit at the time. Because, you expect blind submission and love. However, that is not how the world works. This is also why you lost to Sam Kuteesa in 1980 Election, but we don’t need to discuss about that. 

Ragga Dee was nothing compared to Lukwago. We know this, but you act like the Golden Boy of Gen. Salim Selah would change the Capital City. But we know differently. Don’t act a fool, Mr. President. But in this case you do.

Maybe, you Mr. President should get better people to represent you and your causes, whatever they are? They are lost in the whirlwind of time and surely, unless eating GAVI funds was a part of the 10 Point Programme. Who knows what your motivation are? Except for running for life and micro-managing every street of the Republic. That is who you are and acts like.

Your showing your lackluster value of peoples choices, of democracy and also of governance. As you are indirectly saying, that your punishing the districts or counties, where the opposition is represented. This in part show how little your mind is and how much of tyrant you are. Since, you cannot must courage to understand, why people don’t love you or your ways. However, that maybe got lost when you stole milk as a kid or when you went to the Bush. Who knows? Only you I suppose.

Surely, the Republic deserve a fair and respectable leader, not someone entitled as you. You think your the only man with a vision, I beg to differ. There are various of people who has a vision for the Republic. They might even get the Republic into the 5th Industrial Revolution…. Peace.

Besigye under house-arrest, yet again!

besigye-05-10-2016

The Uganda Police Force has put the former Presidential Candidate and Forum for Democratic Change flag-bearer under house arrest as he just arrived from diaspora. Yesterday he was towed from the Central Business District of Kampala after visiting the Crane Bank.

Therefore this morning… the Police are keeping him under siege again without any court order as they fear his presence as it turns into processions and public reactions to the man being free.

“The police mouthpiece Andrew Felix Kaweesi told Chimpreports on Wednesday that the blockade was only precautionary in nature. “We stopped Dr. Besigye from leaving home today under preventive measures. We had received intelligence reports that he and his group had organized to cause havoc in the city,” Kaweesi told us” (…) “Whenever we get information of planned unrest we act. We’re also are using a containment approach which is keeping close watch on all his movements and activities,” he said.” (Waswa, 2016).

This is what the rule of law has boiled down to:

Besigye is not allowed to justice, freedom or liberty. While his “Treason Charge” is being prolonged as possible; Dr. Kizza Besigye is not allowed to leave his home anymore. The Uganda Police Force is claiming that he is the problem. Their reasoning is that Besigye is causing a stir; initially it is the Police who cause it together with orders from above high.

Besigye is claimed to be the problem, not the police who uses the tear-gas, batons on the civilians and roadblocks to create havoc. That is not something one political person is doing on his own that is the Police making. Since it is like that the innocent man Besigye who has fought for justice is deliberately taken away from him.

The unrest is created by Police as they are trying to contain a popular man who has the support of the people, that is why there are only hired crowds and many people on the parades of Museveni as they are served and paid for their travels; while Besigye shows up on every corner and shows that he is the legitimate leader. Something that the leadership cannot handle at the moment… that is why the Police have troubles with Besigye! Peace.

Reference:

Waswa, Sam – ‘Police on Why Besigye Cannot Leave His Kasangati Home’ (05.10.2016) link:

Besigye gets into trouble: because he waves at the crowd and goes to the Bank!

besigye-04-10-2016-p1

There is reports that the house of Besigye is barricaded again by Police Officers as he earlier in the day went down-town central Kampala Business District to the Crane Bank to surely just take out some money so he could pay for food and running expenses. Something every man and person needs. So the news that the Police used force and even took him away at the Clock Tower today in Kampala proves the un-necessary effort to stop Besigye in whatnot he does on his daily basis.

A Police Officer around the bank told him: “That he was not allowed to wave at the people”. Mr. Officer which law is your presiding over and who asshole gave you the order today? Was it IGP Kale Kayihura who called it procession and wanted it stop; so we can hear the new fake news from AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi who will speak his nonsense later tonight.

The Uganda Police Force and their laws have an apparent problem with Dr. Kizza Besigye, as they have with the Pro-Change Youths that are often detained at any point when Besigye wants to congregate. If not just stopping by their political figure and show respect to the man who speaks for the people and not for the feeding of the bank-accounts of Mzee.

Because the Police had to take him out of his into the famous van and drive him back to Kasangati, his home after the people we’re circulating his car. As they took him into the van, they used on of their Anti-Riot vehicles to tow his car to his home. They knew that Besigye lack money for gas at this point (joking by the way). Nevertheless, there are striking issues here!

museveni-police-day-2016

Only on today’s heroics of Besigye, the Police Force is reported to have spent 500m shillings on the charade of brilliant behaviour and brutality to silence the opposition leader and legitimate leader, the people’s president as President Museveni we’re busy parading yesterday his Police at Police Day (ironically) at Kololo Grounds; his favourite show-off of power and parading grounds as the shut-off area make it look like he has some sort of popularity. But in reality the people flock around Besigye and Museveni gets the last end of the stick.

This here proves the issuing problem that doesn’t go away, even if the Uganda Police Force besieged the home of Besigye; his support doesn’t dwindle away and his party doesn’t cease to exist. The certainty is that the Police Force and the Government cannot afford to continue the belittling of them in the pursuit of nonsense deteriorating the procedures and rule of law with their impunity towards the man. So Mzee and his cadres looks more and more foolish, more desperate and more weak as their tools are soon exhausted in their rally to demolish and trying with acts of fatigue towards Besigye.

The Police Force isn’t looking professional or acting so as they are using any opportunity to crash, to detain and arrest FDC Youth and Besigye. They cannot help themselves and their cadres for these vile attempts of creating peace, but instead creating violence. They are violating basic rights and acts of citizens to be out. Just as they we’re doing to fellow peers yesterday as over 50 Youths we’re captured by Police in Entebbe. 10 of them we’re taken from Makerere University. Moses Byamugyisha we’re today in Entebbe fighting all day and reported gotten 16 out of jail, but still many lingering without trial or court dates as the impunity are static. Just like the values of Crane Bank who cannot be sold without consent of the Museveni family.

besigye-04-10-2016-p2

Let me be clear, as long as this prolongs the KEY QUESTION for the Police Force is: “Are Besigye a legit citizen?”, “Does Besigye have rights?” ;”Is Besigye allowed to have justice?”, “Are Besigye a man who can have the liberty to walk, work and live?”

These are basic for the Police because they do not care to what extent they steal and thief time and ordinary life from the man. The same Police who doesn’t care if they detain innocent civilians or even tear-gas a couple for the mock of it. The failure of righteous and equal law is now on the forefront as the violent and brutal Police has nothing to deliver or compensate their acts of vile snatching of freedoms. As they do to anybody who is a subject near the Political figure and stature of Besigye. That is something the Police and Government should know, and knows very well, but will not admit as the cowards they are!

It’s time ask, how much can the people see of this acts and this attempts of political prison of a single citizen without acting with peaceful demonstrations against the aggressors and sponsors of this thuggery? Peace.

#BesigyeReturns and the Calvary goes into panic mode!

upf-03-10-2016

“Police is not going to allow any activity that is going to disrupt normal activity in the city. FDC didn’t communicate changes regarding Kizza Besigye’s return. We expected him on September 29,” police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi on FDC’s planned procession to welcome the leading opposition figure” (NBS TV Uganda,2016).

It’s ironic that the Police Spokesman and that the Authorities has questions towards normal activity as of just hours ago the Kampala we’re busy with the KCCA sponsored Carneval where Dr. Jennifer Musisi drove a expensive Mercedes and the different sponsors had tents and concerts while the Kampala we’re decorated for festivities and other acts that the Police accepted, but that FDC and Besigye planning something is “disrupting normal activity” which means disrupting the embezzlement and power of the people like the regime does daily. Well, here is my reports and quotes from what happen on this day!

Just as the roads to the Entebbe International Airport we’re closed with roadblocks to close off the Airport as the Kenya Airways containing Besigye we’re arriving this morning. The Journalists wishing to attend and see the arrival we’re blocked from doing so. The Pro-Change Youth who wanted to decorate roads around Entebbe we’re arrested the numbers we’re up to 26 people alone there.

While at FDC Headquarters Najjankumbi we’re besieged by the Police Command of the area and there we’re even a military helicopter flying over. While 200 supporters and FDC leadership we’re stuck inside as the Police Officers and such kept the Political Party of Besigye under siege yet again.

fdc-hq-10-09-2016

As the Airplane arrived and opened for the people to disembark the security outfit, somebody claims the Flying Squad aka Special Force Command that is under Museveni’s son Brig. Muhoozi. That they we’re going into the plane with Civil Aviation Authority clothes and kidnapped him one the spot as they whisked him into a CAA vehicle on the ground. They just took him without his passport and his luggage as he was taken away without knowing his final destination. Nobody knew but the captors.

In the early morning the FDC officials and FDC VIPs like FDC MPs we’re not allowed by Airport Security to even be at the VIP Lounge to congregate and make festivities for the arriving Besigye, as they didn’t know at that point that he would be kidnapped by CAA people or people we’re CAA clothes.

There we’re roadblocks between Kampala and Wakiso, to be correct into Kasangati where Besigye resides and famously known as Kasangati Statehouse. That we’re blocked and there we’re mambas and Anti-Demonstrations vehicles all around the roads as the fear of the government as the Political Party leader of FDC we’re coming home.

As in Kampala the Clock Tower we’re sealed off, there are even reports of tear-gassing the public on Jinja Road. While the Police Officers and Police Cars we’re everywhere taking civilians into jail or whisking them away.

“Moses Walugembe (NBS reporter): “We’ve been told journalists aren’t allowed to proceed to the airport. We have asked the officers why we are being blocked and an officer told us they are under orders. Access to the airport is limited to passengers” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

At Kitubulu on Entebbe road from the packed Kajjansi Police Post the traffic corresponding the area, all of them we’re checked by the Police Officers before being allowed to continue to pass towards Entebbe. The same Police even stopped a man for going with Matooke on the side of the road and took it from the man.

Doreen Nyanjura statement today:

Here at Entebbe police station, Police goons have come with stones, sticks and pangas! They want the activists to take photos With the stones, sticks and Pangas! Fortunately they are defying and I have joined them in the defiance. We have chased the camera man away. What nonsense is this! This is not the first time these goons are doing this!” (Nyanjura, 2016).

The Supporters ready to greet Besigye in Kampala with Blue Colours and gear we’re either whisked away or detained as the regime don’t want to look weak as the People’s President we’re arriving home.

besigye-kasangati-03-10-2016

Kizza Besigye: ”What happened today is a clear demonstration that I am the people’s president. I got here with a whole convoy of police cars, all with sirens, bringing the president back. I have not come back officially. My passport is not stamped. My luggage is still at the airport. Some police officers went to claim my luggage, a thing Kenya Airways refused to do” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

At Makerere University Pro-Change students who we’re preparing for activity today we’re also detained as they we’re not allowed to celebrate the return of Besigye.

There we’re so much un-necessary behaviour of the Police, but this is the proud men of IGP Kale Kayihura and Mzee, they cannot do otherwise. The planned meeting and the regiment of Police earlier days ago we’re not transparent as they had to violently and with brutal misconception of freedom take him away from the airport.

The NRM regime is weak when they fear the man this much and does this to civilian without an army or a guerrilla. They do this to man who wants accountability and transparency, a government governed by the people. He is flogged and stolen away his freedoms for the cause of them. President Museveni and his elite is weak unit when they cannot muster a gentler force and better will power than this.

The FDC and Dr. Kizza Besigye knows that this cannot go on indefinite as the use of resources and time will trickle on the power and their reputation as the news of their unneeded activity towards the opposition like today. The repressive and oppressive behaviour that I hope leads into more Organizations and more Multi-Nationals like World Bank and AIG pulls out their support of funds towards the NRM regime and their eating of the poverty of their citizens while the voices of the citizens struggle to live and have freedom. Peace.    

Besigye Case-State Witness Contradicts Himself (Youtube-Clip)

“Shock at the kasangati court as a police officer testifying against Dr. Kiiza Besigye fails to corroborate his earlier testimony with the recorded video he produced in court to pin Dr. Kiiza Besigye on his defiance case. The officer’s evidence a video detailing incidents said to describe Besigye’s disobedience came under tight objection after it contradicted with the police statement he recorded earlier implying the video may have been edited” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

UPF Press Statement: The Police explain the reason for detaining Dr. Kizza Besigye before going to FDC HQ at Najjankumbi for Tuesday Prayer (05.04.2016)

Besigye Kasangati 05.04.2016

The Uganda Police Force has learnt that tomorrow 5th April, 2016, RTD. Col Dr. Kiiza Besigye will attend prayers at the FDC party Headquarters at Najanankumbi. The prayers shall be held within the enclosed party premises and this therefore does not violate the law.

What is of particular security concern however, is information that after the prayers RTD. Col Dr. Kiiza Besigye intends to drive in a procession from Najanankumbi through Clock Tower to Container Village which is one of the most highly populated areas in Kampala City.

The purpose of this statement therefore is to caution RTD. Col. Dr. Kiiza Besigye to desist from carrying out any procession tomorrow because he has not notified the police in time as required by the Public Order Management Act sec 4 (1) 5(1). Violation of this law calls for sanctions as provided by the Act.

The public is strongly advised to shun anyone who tries to involve them in any unlawful activity that is likely to disrupt safety and peace within the city and which could result into damage to lives and people’s properties.

The Uganda Police Force assures all Ugandans and in particular the business community in Kampala that all measures are in place to ensure public order as well as security for persons and properties.By Blanshe Musinguzi

Free Uganda Statement on the Youth Revolt now underway in Uganda, led by the CHAIN-WARRIORS (31.03.2016)

Demonstrator Kampala 31.03.2016

Ugandan People Power Revolution in the making. The nation’s Patriotic Youth are leading the way. Freedom is the ultimate Destination.

Free Uganda applauds the courageous Ugandan youths who have today, 31st March 2016 launched the equivalent of the 1980 attack on Kabamba barracks by a small group of NRA guerrillas.

The difference is that this extremely symbolic action by the revolutionary youths of Uganda was entirely peaceful – CHAINING THEMSELVES TO POLES IN STRATEGIC AREAS OF KAMPALA CITY, as hundreds of chanting and singing citizens cheered them on.

The CHAIN WARRIORS have opened one of the most effective pathways to the liberation of Uganda, and they must be applauded for their determination and courage, in the face of brutal police arrests and torture.

Going forward in this Struggle, all creative means of defiance will be deployed by the People Power Patriots, but the Ugandan nation must prepared to confront the extreme and nakedly savage brutality by the Museveni / Muhoozi / Kayihura axis.

It is vital that the People of Uganda, while pursuing the freedom goal through peaceful and non-violent means, acknowledge the need to be open-minded about the possible use of ALL NECESSARY MEANS, and begin to build the necessary capacity for any such eventuality.

This call for preparedness to use ALL NECESSARY MEANS to secure the People’s Freedom and resist mass murder on the part of the Museveni / Muhoozi / Kayihura axis, is directed mainly at our brothers and sisters who are already armed and trained in the use of violent means, i.e those in the Uganda People’s Defence Forces, the Uganda Police Service and the country’s Security Services.

If Ugandans are to achieve the Burkina-Style liberation, which was initiated and overwhelmingly actualised by unarmed and peaceful citizens, those progressive and patriotic brothers and sisters in the armed services must be prepared to intervene on the side of the masses, when Museveni, his son Muhoozi and the rogue police general Kale Kayihura begin to commit mass murder of unarmed civilians or when pro-Museveni sections of the armed services chose to carry out a palace coup, as was the case in Burkina Faso, when the presidential guard attempted to reverse the People’s victory by carrying out a palace coup supported by the deposed president.

This foresight and visionary reflection on how things may go wrong in the course of the People’s liberation struggle is of vital importance to the success of the patriotic mission now underway in Uganda.

It is not good enough for the People to sacrifice their lives through peaceful struggle, only for their victory to be blunted or snatched away by the very illegitimate and criminal outfit that has imposed itself on the nation.

Where necessary, even the civilian population that is now involved in peaceful and non-violent defiance, must be prepared to use ALL NECESSARY MEANS should the evolving developments necessitate that course of action.

So, as the People Power Struggle picks momentum and becomes visible on the streets of Uganda’s capital and elsewhere across the country, it would be of strategic importance for the progressive forces in the liberation struggle not to rule out any RADICAL SOLUTIONS, IN THE FACE OF MUSEVENI’S, MUHOOZI’s and KAYIHURA’s EXTREME VIOLENCE, BRUTALITY and REPRESSION.

The Free Uganda (FU) view on the way forward for the Freedom Struggle is that Ugandan people must be prepared for any eventuality and all the patriotic forces in the country should empower themselves and the masses in ways that will be effective enough to overpower the reactionary terror machine currently assembled by Yoweri Museveni.

The Freedom Struggle is on!
