Ssewanyana MP kidnapped by a “drone” [and kept at a unknown location]

Reports coming in indicates that Hon. Allan Ssewanyana has been kidnapped at gun point at the entrance of Kigo Prison by gun totting operatives shortly after his release by Prisons authorities” (Baba TV Uganda, 23.09.2021).

Again, the injustice and impunity is shown to the world to see. The National Unity Platform MP Ssewanyana who is already facing serious charges pinned on him by the authorities. Have now been taken away by a “drone” or a “Panda Gari” which means they have him in a ungazetted safe-house or unknown location.

This is a total disregard for justice. As the MP have already been behind bars for two weeks and there been nothing produced to prove his guilt. That’s why you know him and his fellow MP have been politically targeted by the authorities. This isn’t anything new, but is just a mere prospect of what is happening in the Republic.

Ssewanyana MP could easily face torture and horrific pains in the hands of the fellow detail who is on his watch now. That is what has happened to others who has had this fate. Therefore, there is no relief or stop of the burden. The state isn’t even trying to show the burden of proof of the allegations made against him and his peer. No, they are just facing farcical trials and kangaroo courts, which is only symbolic.

Sooner or later this case will die down and the value of the prosecution will cease as well. The Masaka murders are still cold and the authorities have no leads there. If not they are shielding the killers to pin these MPs. That’s how sinister these acts are. You serve injustice to fellow citizens to let the ones behind the crimes free.

Ssewanyana MP will face trouble now and the Uganda Police Force will make some foolish accusations. The authorities will play the blame game and they will make “safety” assessment as a reason for the arrest on the gates of the Kigo Prison.

This only shows how the regime is working… and that they have no regard for “rule of law”. They only have time and ability to misuse the courts and the lives of the deceased. Which is all used as pawns for the greater schemes of things.

I pity the fools who believes this is good judgement. Because it is not. It only shows what sort of liberty and freedom, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) lives and strives for. Peace.

Opinion: Chamelone is a waste of time…

The musician Joseph Mayanja aka Dr. Jose Chameleone is not worthy of our time. He is just showing his purpose and why he became a politician. The whole time of the elections just to toy around and play a game. He was a pawn and wasn’t sincere.

That’s why his in the family and the prodigal son the Movement. His heart is yellow and a man of the President. Some of us has been saying this all along. While he was busy scheming in the Democratic Party (DP), Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) and in the National Unity Platform (NUP).

Chameleone was just doing this to play his part, but he was never invested in it. Not like he was campaigning for Museveni or for the Movement. He wants so badly to be recognized and be respected in the National Resistance Movement (NRM).

The musician is getting some cheap token gifts and some monetary gains. However, the man wants true acknowledgement. That’s why he speaks ill of the NUP now. Even though he was never a real deal and the NUP saw that. This is why he wasn’t able to get on their ticket.

Chameleone had a spot ready in the DP and he even toyed around with ANT too. So, it is not like was loyal to anyone. He was just fishing around and trying to find the best outfit to look legit. While he shows he has no integrity or moral compass.

The Dr. Jose is willing to do anything to look like something his not. Say words and statements to look like an opposition. When deep down he would never betray or be behind the flag-bearers of the opposition parties in question. That is how devious this man is and shows what token soldier he is.

Chameleone is just a toy-soldier for the yellow. As he wanted to look like a “changed man” but was just a front. He was fake and a phony. His a real bitch of the President and ready to bend his knee for him too.

Therefore, if he tries this again. No that no one should believe it. This trick is played out and he should just join the parade of influencers supporting Muhoozi. This man should just be by the side of NRM and the President.

He is not conflicted, but a man who knows where the pocket is secure. Chamelone knows where his home is and where the shillings are doled out from. That is why he will always “return” and be “loyal” to him. Because that cause pays and the other places he has to fight. A fight that doesn’t matter to him and his heart isn’t in it.

He rather eats the spoils with the tyrant and dine with his thieves. No matter what he does now. Never believe his acts or his moves politically. That’s a waste of time and his just another Yellow pawn playing second fiddle to act like an “opposition”. Later he will return back and everything will go back to “normal”. Peace.

Opinion: Chameleone was always yellow and was never even green…

The singer was speaking at an event organized by Toyota Nuwagira when he went on record to say, he has never left the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM). “My greatest witness can be Mr. Toyota, my friend, I am still your family, I have never left NRM. If you doubt that, put up your cameras and record me. I am still NRM,” Chameleone said” (Crispus Mugisha – ‘Chameleone develops weak knees in front of Museveni’s brother, says he has never left NRM’ 20.09.2021, Nilepost.ug).

Dr. Jose Chameleone aka Joseph Mayanja shows his true colours. Instead of lying and acting insincere, which was his deal in 2020 and early 2021 before the general election. At one point he was the Democratic Party Mobilizer before he went to try to be the Lord Mayoral Candidate for the National Unity Platform (NUP). However, he was blocked and wasn’t allowed to stand as a candidate in the NUP. That is maybe forgotten, but Chameleone had a longer stay in Norbert Mao’s party than under the wings of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

This is why Chameleone is only showing that his yellow. Some of us said that and never trusted this man. Now the likes of us is vindicated. He is a man of the President and he would easily take a paid check by the tyrant.

Dr. Jose would easily trade his integrity and his moral judgement to participate in campaign rallies. Not to talk about being one of the main stars in a gig-song for the Movement. That is the sort of fella he is and nobody should ever think otherwise. The man congratulated Museveni after “winning” in 2016. It is not like he changed that quick and would suddenly be defiant.

The ones who believed that was sadly fooled and mocked. Mao should feel betrayed and played by Chameleone. Unless, Mao has made secret deals to be a “fake” opposition party. That is something for another day, but he had several of questionable candidates in the recent election and not only giving Chameleone a big platform in the party.

The yellow should be happy how this man could be used and play around. He could even test these parties and toy around with a grift of a campaign. This man was never true to his cause or political ambition.

I said he was Yellow and now he verifies it himself. I even had a headline stating this in July 2019: “Chameleone isn’t green, his heart bleads yellow!”. This is all true and anyone questioning it is foolish.

It was all a lie, as he said this the same year: “This is a new crusade. They branded us thugs but it was because we trusted them and they left us poor. In 1986, I was like 6 or 7 years when they took over and welcomed him(Museveni) as our darling but has let us down and people have lost hope in the country” (Jose Chameleone, 16.07.2019).

So, he just shows how fake he is and says what he needs to say to be in character. Dr. Jose is willing to lie to play a role, but when reality hits the fan. We just know his another yellow fellow. The yellow is all in his heart. Chameleone is a man of the President and it’s all clear as day. The time in DP and trying to be a mayoral candidate in NUP was a fraud.

It is now proven and the ones following this man. Has to now that he is willing to be fake and be a pawn for the Movement. Peace.

Spygate: CMI “arrested” Victoria University Vice Chancellor Dr. Muganga

Today, there was leaked video clips of Dr. Lawerence Muganga of a violent arrest of the Vice Chancellor of Victoria University. The “Panda Gari’s” or “drones” usually tend to come in plain-clothes and do it “discreetly”. However, in today’s instance it went viral and was all over the web.

The authorities claims this was a joint-operation to apprehend a foreign spy. There are claims that the VC have had close ties to Rwandan President Paul Kagame. That his education at Makerere University was sponsored directly by him. It is reported that he worked in the Presidential Office of Rwanda as Researcher together with David Himbara. In addition that he got the current job through Andrew Mwenda who has also been funded directly by Kigali in the past. Also, unverified reports that he used a Rwandan passport whenever he travelled.

However, all of that stated above isn’t written in stone, but it is a clear intent when this sort of play is happening. The V.C. have been a visible character and been even on NBS Television plenty of times. It is not like he has lived a life in hiding or tried to be Clark Kent. No, parts of his life has been on all public display and it’s weird that his spying too.

You can wonder what sort of intelligence this man was supposed to get. Was it supposed to get minutes and orders from the Ministry of Education and the prayers of Mama Janet? I wonder what this sort of fella would help Kigali with?

If he was a foreign operative and actually worked with espionage unless the authorities of Chieftain of Military Intelligence (CMI) or Internal Security Organization (ISO) have collect something we don’t know. Because, the VC had to do some real James Bond or Jason Bourne. God knows… what he did or didn’t do.

However, the way they manhandled him on public display and directly kidnapped him. Yes, they have hours later said he was arrested. Nevertheless, the citizen wasn’t warranted or informed of the pending charges. Well, it if it a matter of espionage and national security. We understand that they kept it secret.

Still, the authorities have arrested political operatives, activists and leaders in the same manner over the last few years. So, it is not like this is a new practice. The “Panda Gari’s” is a thing and surely like the ungazetted safe-houses across the republic as well. It is just common means to an end for the ones in-power at the marvellous times we are currently living in.

The VC might be an spy and might just be a foreigner working illegally in Uganda. If not.. .for a man living so long in Uganda. It seems weird that a public figure and of an educational institution have been able to keep all this under wraps.

That’s why I wonder how this continue. Will he be deported and expelled? Will Victoria University have to hire someone else?

If not this is a real stupid act. The state should explain how a VC in the open can be a hidden spy. That’s what is weird to me here. If its an “illegal alien” case… that makes more sense than he has done lip-service to Kagame on the regular. When Kagame have spent fortunes on Pegasus and listen through “the wire”. Therefore, an operative is only useful if you hope he will rise to the upper echelon to suddenly get into “confidential” documents. However, I doubt that will ever happen at Victoria at this point.

That’s why this seems like a weird situation and I wonder how this will unfold. Nevertheless, this will not make sense to me. Unless, someone has a notes, reports and shows the secret life of the VC. Where his capable of wiring, wire-tapping and getting intelligence from the Ugandan government through this office. I really want to see that and what sort of “valuable” cables he would send to Kigali.

I’m looking forward to read that and while I wait. I might watch another spy-movie on Netflix. Peace.

Opinion: Nabilah it isn’t the process, but its all on you

Nabilah Naggayi Sempala is most likely coming third in the Lord Mayoral Race of Kampala. Incumbent Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago seems to be supreme yet again. Even as Lukwago has gone all the way from the Democratic Party (DP) to become a Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) candidate. However, that has been in the wood-works for so long, as his been a steady ally of Dr. Kizza Besigye. Therefore, the political change in the sense of Lukwago is a manner of integrity.

While Nabilah who has gone from the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) where she had been the Kampala Woman MP and now went into the election with a bogus method. There is nothing that make it seem legit from the outside. Yes, the FDC wasn’t all good with process and the agreements made with Lukwago. Just like Nabilah didn’t want to challenge Dr. Stella Nyanzi. Who also came third in the race for Kampala Woman MP on the 14th January 2021.

Nevertheless, Nabilah is questioned for her actions and her meal-ticket ways. I was against her standing for the National Unity Platform (NUP) for Lord Mayor. That wasn’t because of Latif Ssebagala who was first vetted to be the Lord Mayoral Candidate for the NUP. He dropped out and instead decided to stand as an Independent. Nevertheless, that man lost his election as Independent too. As the NUP candidate won that election in that Constituency, where Latif was the incumbent MP.

The NUP did in their first round of vetting ensure Latif, but they did also drop Jose Chameleone who also wanted to be the Lord Mayoral Candidate. Who had gone from being the DP Mobilizer to become a NUP Member. Still, the NUP didn’t take him in or give him an opportunity. No, they ditched him.

Instead with all of this. The now outcast within the FDC, Nabilah suddenly went over to NUP and became the appointed Lord Mayoral Candidate. So, the whole process was hectic. Nabilah had already tried to get her way in the FDC. But, that didn’t work out and she tried to challenge the one who had secret agreement within the FDC.

That didn’t work out, apparently. The voters doesn’t trust Nabilah. That isn’t because of the NUP. It is because of how Nabilah is playing around at election time. Nabilah did the same in 2016. When she was jumping between stages with Mbabazi (Go Forward), President Museveni and returning to the nomination of Besigye (FDC).

So, if people looking for someone to believe in or think they are working for something bigger then themselves. Then the likes of Nabilah isn’t the character you think off. She is trying to finesse the game and get ahead. Trying to find her place to ensure a secure office. Not that the office or service matters. As long as she is part of a movement with momentum. That is why she double dipped and suddenly turned red from blue over night.

What is really striking is that Daniel Kazibwe, the NRM Lord Mayor came before Nabilah. The Salim Selah operative is more popular and supported then Nabilah. This is from the same city she has represented as Woman MP and they don’t see her as viable.

This is the third term of Lukwago and second party doing it. He shows strength and that the city believes in him. The way Kampala politics is… they need a veteran and someone who knows the hectic mess, President Museveni have made. That has been done to clear oversight and to many chefs in the kitchen.

Nabilah can cry foul, but she should know its all on her. A cynical meal-ticket politician who has been revealed and she doesn’t have the ability to change. The only thing she can do is to create headlines, but not be a loved character. It is actually tragic, but she should look into herself and maybe do some soul searching before she finds a new home. Peace.

Chapter Four: Update on the Frivolous Charges against Nicholas Opiyo (24.12.2020)

Uganda Law Society (ULS) Statement on the Illegal Arrest of Advocate Nicholas Opiyo (22.12.2020)

Human Rights Lawyer Opiyo arrested in Kampala

The Human Rights Lawyer Nicholas Opiyo was arrested by security officers in plain-clothes earlier today at Lamwaro Restaurant in Kamwokya in Kampala today. This after his house was raided by unknown people a few days ago.

This is going after a government critic and lawyer who works for human rights and against injustice. So, because of what he does. He gets arrested too. Not that this was warranted or have any open charges on the lawyer.

The location of the arrested lawyer is unknown … and we don’t even if these security operators was part of CMI, ISO or anyone else within the authorities. Because, this is just arresting and abducting a civilian for no apparent reason. That is what the state does to its critics.

Usually they are mobilizers or activists for a opposition and they are getting phony charges. These are taken away at night or early morning. Later the party and organizations wonders where they members and activists are. Therefore, what happened to Opiyo isn’t a new thing, but a worrying sign still.

That someone like his is targeted and easily taken of the streets without any warning. That the state can issue an arrest and abduct him without any precautions. This isn’t a good look. We can wonder how many more who is taken away like this and who is monitored by state. As they have been following Opiyo for a while.

The government of Uganda doesn’t want good press. They just want depressing news, apparently. Peace.

Kampala Lord Mayoral Race: DP sends in their third aspirant now!

What is happening within the Democratic Party and what is up with the leadership of Norbert Mao? I just got to ask. Because, this all started with Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone. He was the supposed Lord Mayoral Candidate after Erias Lukwago went to the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).

Alas, he went away and the DP had to get someone else. In early September the shocking pick of outside forces went to Beatrice Kayanja. However, by early October, the party and herself found out that she wasn’t eligible. Therefore, the party had to look out for someone else again.

Today, there is a sudden rise of a Charles James Senkubuge as the Lord Mayoral Aspirant for the DP party. His nicknamed Siasa, a veteran dramatist. Who at one point ran as a Presidential Candidate, but bowed out only after a month. The man has also been a radio presenter on Radio Simba as well. He has worked in SALT Media, working in radio and television for Pastor Bugingo. In July 2017 he retired from the stage himself.

However, now this man has returned to politics. Instead of seeking the highest office. The dramatist wants to enter the stage of Lord Mayor. He wants to make a fool out of Lukwago. However, I think that’s a fools play. He is bound to loose at this point. Just like all the others aiming at him. That is what Latif Ssebagala already have understood.

The newest recruit and actor, the former Presidential candidate, comedian and one who feared and was intimidated to drop-out in 2001. His back and wants to run against Lukwago. The third aspirant of the DP. That is how much the DP is fishing.

Senkubuge isn’t a winning ticket, but finally a ticket indeed. The DP maybe have another wild-card. Who will be as useful as Ragga Dee. Instead of being a direct musician, the DP can spread jokes and drama. He can even mock Nabilah Naggayi Sempala.

If people should take him seriously? Well, I won’t, because his a side-show. A sort of mockery of it all. The punchline on stage, but not the man to behind. He even said he stood for the KCC and not the KCCA in a statement. The man isn’t aware that the KCC is defunct for awhile. Therefore, this man is only small player on a giant stage.

This man isn’t prepared for this. If you felt Chameleone didn’t know what he was doing and jumping erratic around. Senkubuge won’t be any different. Only difference is that the DP has him as an aspirant.

What else can we say?

Maybe close the curtain and stop the show. Peace.

Lord Mayoral Aspirants of Kampala: Two lucky losers [because of Latif Ssebagala]

I am still a NUP member much as the party has decided someone else to contest for the same position. I decided to defy the party to come as an Independent after I was denied a card for NUP…The city is not looking for an Opposition leader. It needs a capable leader who will be able to promote development and come up with strategies to create jobs for the youths” Jose Chameleone (Job Bwire – ‘I support Bobi Wine but I’ve my ambitions, says Jose Chameleone’ 01.10.2020).

The National Unity Platform (NUP) have accepted and endorsed Nabilah Naggayi Sempala MP as the Lord Mayoral Aspirant for Kampala. That happened after the first round of nominations where MP Latif Ssebagala dropped out of the day after getting the nomination. In that race to become the Lord Mayoral Aspirant for the NUP, one of them was Joseph Manyanja aka Jose Chameleone.

Chameleone lost to Ssebagala. However, he dropped out as he wanted the Opposition to have a joint candidate in Kampala. That is something the NUP didn’t accept, as they want to challenge the status quo and go after the incumbent Erias Lukwago.

It is ironic that the NUP has Sempala MP as the Flag-Bearer as she intended to run for the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) for the same role. Alas, she was blocked first because of the agreement between FDC and Lukwago. Later, Lukwago got nominated directly when he shifted parties and became a FDC Member. Therefore, Sempala bears grudges, as she knows she would struggle to defend her place as Woman MP against Dr. Stella Nyanzi. This is why she fled the FDC for NUP.

So, Sempala has found herself a new home. However, her campaign now is more throwing a tantrums against her former party. It is understandable that she is hurt. Nevertheless, she has jumped ships before and returned home. This time it seems more permanent. While it will be fruitless.

I doubt with the standing Lukwago has, that he will be defeated this time around. He has the gravitas and the field for himself. The man has won twice and could easily do it again. The NRM sending Ragga Dee is just mockery of the race. Because, they know they cannot win it.

Chameleone running as independent with the People Power sticker will not make significant change. He will maybe steal votes for Sempala, but not take away from Lukwago. That is why they are both lucky losers.

Chameleone and Sempala are running a race to the bottom. It is just a matter of how fast it will happen. Chameleone could have run on the DP Ticket, but he ditched that and they have another candidate in his stead. Sempala couldn’t face Lukwago and Nyanzi in the FDC. Therefore, she needed to run somewhere. That just happened to be NUP.

Neither of Chameleone or Sempala are people who are trustworthy in the public. They are looking like meal-ticket politicians. When it quack like a ducks and sounds like a duck, it is most likely a duck. These two are that by all definition. These are not people serving the interests or trying to conceal it even.

This is why, if I have faith in the people living in Kampala. They are seeing the same and doesn’t want to waste their votes. Yes, the NUP is a power for change and wanting to dismantle the NRM. However, a person like Sempala isn’t the trick. She will bend wherever she needs to get in office. Chameleone will do the same and that is why he has switched so quickly too.

That is why these two are not it. They are not showing anything in manifestos or pledges. Except, they are the magic potion to fix everything…. I don’t believe that, but that is the play they are playing. Peace.
