DP Statement on current affairs Omoro Election, Kifeesi Police, Parliament Amendments and Police Reshuffle (23.08.2016)

DP 23.08.2016

Kampala August 23, 2016– The Elections for the Omoro District Woman MP will be held next week Monday 29th August 2016. We wish to retaliate that our Candidate Pamella Grace Lanyero is still a front runner in the race. We have finalized all efforts to protect the vote and this week we shall round up the campaigns with three Main Rallies. We shall with effect from tomorrow send our teams led by Members of Parliament; DP Whip Hon Ssewungu Joseph Gonzaga and the Women President Florence Namayanja. The Party President Norbert Mao will be the overall Field Commander. We have mapped the Constituency to the effect that the DP District Leaderships are to be deployed in respective sub-counties. This therefore puts a straight forward warning to all those with ill intensions of pandering in malpractices. The Kifeesi teams, crime preventers and police should therefore limit themselves only to the constitutional provisions pursuant to Electoral laws. We wish to participate in a free and fair process and we shall not be liable for any repercussions pursuant to contradicting the process.

Constitution Amendment Bill 2016

We are also concerned about the proposal, which is part of several amendments proposed in the Constitution Amendment Bill 2016 and is spearheaded by the Nakifuma County MP to provide for an open term of office for Commissioners under the Electoral Commission. The Bill seeking to extend the term of office of the Commissioners from the current ten-year non-renewable term to an open in a guise to allow for the Commission to retain more experienced individuals to run it is a blunder. This move by all means serves interests of Government and the President in particular. The appointment and permanent retention in such a move is ploy of recycled inefficiency and reward for stealing a vote at a period when no one has trust in the Commission as the President’s employees. This is evidenced in rewarding Eng. Badru Kiggundu in his new appointment as in-charge of Karuma and Isimba Power Dams Construction for the job well done in the EC. We are aware that this is a pilot plot to pave way for Life Presidency and we ask the President and his team to put their hands off the destiny of Uganda.

Police Public Relations Office Reshuffle
The country received the news of the reshuffle of the former Police PRO Fred Enanga. It is never astonishing that the Police Spokesperson is reshuffled because we have seen many come and go. What is startling is how a one Fred Enanga is replaced by the cantankerous Andrew Felix Kaweesi. The move saves Fred Enanga from living a life with his foot perpetually in his mouth. The Party is convinced that this reshuffle at such a time is uncalled for, diversionary and a political move from the IGP to cover up his recent mess in the Police but worse still; the organized mob he aided to attack the Courts of Judicature. We wish to stand clearly and state that the appointment of Kaweesi as the Police image, whether in interim or utilitarian capacity is not welcome at all. The personality of the Spokesperson brings out the entire image of the institution and that cannot be Kaweesi. We have a track-record of him from the days when he was in charge of the Police training school in Masindi. All Police officers who were passed out during his time have messed up the institution and haven’t acted any different from Aron Baguma, Arinaitwe Bwana among others. These are the fruits of Kaweesi!

When he was appointed Kampala Metropolitan Zonal Police Commander, his rough, inhuman and deadly actions as an individual are still fresh in the minds of the people of Kampala and the Metropolitan. This was a bit covered up when he was transferred to head the Human Resource Department and AIGP Director of operations. We have for long known that this is the true image of the Police, but the appointment of a person of such calibre will leave all Ugandans weeping whenever he appears in the media to justify police positions. Whereas the entire institution is rotten, we are convinced there is a better rot than Kaweesi! As a Party, we task Kaweesi in his new capacity to parade IGP Kale Kayihura instead of parading lower officers such as the truck driver. The IGP is at large and he disobeyed Court Criminal Summons.

IGP Kayihura internal briefing letter to Police Commander’s on Kifeesi Police Groups in July 2016!

Besigye makes appearance at High Court as part of bail requirements (Youtube-Clip)

“Crowds followed the Former FDC presidential candidate Dr. Kiiza Besigye shortly after reporting to the High-court’s Criminal Division to fulfill one of the conditions court set for his bail on release.
This is the first time Besigye is reporting back before the court’s deputy Registrar since his release on bail on the 12th of this month by Highcourt Judge Masalu Musene” (NTV Uganda, 2016)

Opinion: IGP Kayihura need help and that quickly!

Kale Kayihura Choose Peace

This is not something I wish to say, but somebody has too. The man, the Commander, the loyalist to the NRM-Regime and Mzee, IGP Edward Kale Kayihura needs help. I don’t know what kind of help, but something to make sure his spin-control or Consultant Company to make sure his resume gets respected.

He has always blamed the opposition not to following laws or following the Electoral Roadmap, even when it is the police who are besieging the events. They have been stopping meetings, detaining fellow citizens for walking by opposition meetings. Crashing streets with tear-gas and brutally stop the meeting between the opposition and the people.

Then he claimed back in the day that the media we’re to embedded with opposition figures and their convoys instead of covering politics and policing fairly, but he didn’t question the police when they destroyed cars, detained people without charges or even undressed political activist; that was all okay!

UPF Road to Kasangati 09.04.2016

So this one day in July he confessed that he wasn’t ready for the Dr. Kizza Besigye release on bail, as he has been detained and jailed for all kind of reason; he is surely still monitored and followed by his men. They are obsessed with the man and his stature as they had to while he was driving towards FDC headquarters in Najjankumbi, the Police Officers we’re driving behind and caning by-passers on the road cheering Besigye’s arrival.

Still, the Commander so obsessed with following Mzee, is now spinning the issue towards Besigye and saying he is working against him. That is partly true, as he wants to change and wants a democratic Police Force, as well as accountability and transparent government. Instead you are accepting the NRM cronyism, while you are following Mzee obediently. With that in mind even when violence is used against innocent citizens, the problem is Besigye. It is always Besigye, not the system and Police Force working to silence opponents of Mzee. No, that cannot be the case or the matter; especially for a loyal Commander Kayihura.

Kayihura needs help, really needs help; he just doesn’t know that himself yet. Because he is stuck behind a hard place and a rock; neither is going to be peaceful or just. They just are going to be hard and narrow. The Commander does not understand what harm he does to himself and his family, because he is lost in the tangle-web of Mzee and needs his grace.

UPF 11.02.2016 Block FDC P3

Therefore the Commander blames everybody else for the issues of his Police Force and misuse the draconian laws, instead of securing the public and citizens. He is instead a force for oppression against the public and silencing them. The worst it seem, the Commander think he have the ability to legitimize his actions towards the. That is why he needs help because brutality isn’t Besigye’s fault; he is passing by and driving!! He is not caning and using tear-gas against civilians. That is the Police Force doing under the Command of Kayihura. That is why he needs help and understand his twisted fortune, twisted fortune that is stuck behind loyalty to oppressive behaviour and self-belief in justifying violence against civilians.

I know it isn’t easy to him understand, but if somebody hurt his family often, detained his cousins without charges and destroyed his office as a crime-scene. Then he might understand the oblivion of unlawfulness he has created per instruction of the NRM-Regime. If he would though, as nobody would like to give him the same treatment in a just society; he would be court-side answering for the all the men and woman without charges lingering in jail and all the safe-houses not answered for. This are your legacy together with oppression of opposition with brutal force; not good policing and detecting conspiracy to solve serious crimes. As a commander Edward Kale Kayihura will always be connected with POMA and the destruction of fair political landscape as the Police Force does more to detain opposition than stopping ordinary criminals. The UPF could be respected, but since the Kifeesi squads and their violence is going against the public on your watch. That is what is done on your duty Commander!

So you need help so-called honourable Commander Kayihura, because your ways are apparently twisted and you’re justifying violence under the banner of defending citizens. So with that Police Brutality against innocent civilians proves that you’re not policing, but instead being a useful tool for oppression under the NRM-Regime. That is your legacy, even if you like it or not. Peace.

Remmy Bhati interviews Besigye: “Besigye’s social life in Prison” (Youtube-Clip)

Kizza Besigye addresses press at FDC’s headquarters in Najjanankumbi (Youtube-Clip)

“Kizza Besigye: Before my arrest, I had been under illegal detention at my house in Kasangati for quite a while. He says police is “incompetent” despite the resources they “waste”. Says he defied acts of impunity when he escaped to town

Kizza Besigye narrates his arrest ordeal:

– I was taken first to Nalufenya in Jinja from where I was removed and taken to Moroto.

– In Moroto, strange things happened. All inmates were transferred to other police stations. I was the only inmate at the CPS.

– Counter-terrorism unit officers (the ones who wear black uniforms) were in charge of the Moroto CPS while I was there.

– I was in Moroto CPS for two nights before being charged on the third day.

– At Moroto CPS, the cell door was left open. At night, I noticed some movements. The fellow was masked but he rushed out.

– Charging me in Moroto was irregular. When I was brought to Nakawa, that is why I was charged again for the same case.

Kizza Besigye: Those of us who chose to oppose must know the dictator’s wrath will be directed towards us. Arrest. Torture. And sometimes death. Whenever I am arrested, I am at ease with myself. I am always psychologically prepared for arrest and torture. I am never stressed.

Dr. Kizza Besigye: Biggest challenge is when you are still in police custody. Police is a direct extension of the dictator. It’s his arm.

I was relieved when I was taken from Moroto CPS and taken to the prison. Biggest challenge with our prisons is overcrowding. Besigye: At Moroto Prison, we were 174 inmates in a not-very-sizeable ward. At night, every space was occupied

Kizza Besigye: Prison orders for prisoners on remand aren’t fault of prison officials but fault of the law which dates back to the colonial times. These prison orders dating back to colonial times are unconstitutional. They must change.

Kizza Besigye: Prison orders for prisoners on remand aren’t fault of prison officials but fault of the law which dates back to the colonial times. These prison orders dating back to colonial times are unconstitutional. They must change.

Kizza Besigye: In Moroto where I was held, there hadn’t been a hearing for any criminal case in over 2 years. This is serious and it needs to change. The judiciary is underfunded. The money is spent by these Kifeesi you see running and bludgeoning citizens

Kizza Besigye: I commend the Uganda Red Cross, especially the International Red Cross. They have made the lives of inmates bearable by providing basics

Kizza Besigye: There are those remanded on minister’s orders; you are on remand until the minister orders your release or commits you to be tried. Some people have been in prison on minister’s orders for 20 years. This needs to stop.

Kizza Besigye: Sometimes, police go to prisons and take out suspects illegally for interrogation. Some are taken up country

Kizza Besigye: I thank all those who came to visit me in prison. Going to visit any prisoner in Luzira is not an easy matter. You pass through five check points. At some, you are undressed and deprived of basic dignity. You must set aside a whole day

Kizza Besigye: Some people are saying I have put on weight. I have been eating a lot without doing much. I tried doing some exercises

KIzza Besigye: The struggle we are in is not to simply get a new government i.e. replace NRM with FDC. We want to change our country. We want to change our country from a country where leaders are masters and the would-be masters, the citizens, are subjects

Kizza Besigye: We have criminals masquerading under the police. The institution of the police must be a different institution. Greatest of our policemen, soldiers are very unhappy with what’s happening. That is why we won at polling stations where they voted

Kizza Besigye: We want a country of masters, not subjects. We want a country where leaders are servants. In the country we’re working for, government institutions must be of the people not of the master/dictator.

Kizza Besigye: Ugandan citizens who are masters of this country are just being given handouts. There is a war between the rulers and the citizens. That is why they beat up the citizens. The regime sees citizens as enemies

Kizza Besigye: What happened in the last election wasn’t mere stealing of votes but a coup d’etat against the voters. People who want us to join the government in the name of serving Ugandans, serve them under which framework?” (NBS Live, 13.07.2016)

Dr. Kizza Besigye statement after release on bail from Luzira (12.07.2016)

Besigye Kasangati 12.07.2016

Praise be to God! I am glad to be back home after two months in detention! I am free for now but I can never be really free until our country is free.

I am grateful to all of you who braved the war-like atmosphere around High Court to attend the court proceedings.

I am grateful to all who enthusiastically welcomed me back along the way home & at our home, the unprecedented police brutality towards you notwithstanding.

I’d like to thank greatly all who visited me in prison; all who have been praying for me; and all who’ve courageously sustained the struggle for a free Uganda.

I am grateful to the excellent legal team that fights hard to ensure my freedom.

I’ll be appearing at Nakawa Court at 9am tomorrow, Wednesday 11th July as required. Thereafter, I’ll address the press at the FDC Hqs, Najjanankumbi, at 11am.

The struggle continues and, without any doubt, we shall overcome!

Besigye is free, but I got a strange feeling…

Besigye High Courts 12.07.2016

“Do not fear them, this is our country” – Dr. Kizza Besigye

A hunch, a smidge of interest and a worry as this is a sign of what to come. This is not a token of goodwill from the state, the state under President Museveni will continue to pound on Dr. Kizza Besigye; something he has done so frequently since he left the NRM back-in-the-day. The 100 Million bonds from High Court proves that State Officials and the Government backed sanctions we’re a façade, a high rise with empty rooms and not a functioning building.

Today is a weird day, supposed to be celebrating, but parts of me is feeling that the Courtships and harassment will thrive, as his stage and place is countering the legitimacy of under the current leadership. It’s the true color of smacking the fist to the table and feeling the pain of actually doing so. I am supposed to be happy that the Nobel politician and freedom fighter is released after months behind bars in Luzira Maximum Prison on phony charges, I should be happy that Judge Wilson Musalu Musene gave him a hefty bail. Still the Treason Charge is still on him and not entirely free, he still have to fight the case, one court date at the time every second week starting 26th of July 2016. So the Government and Lawyers and State Prosecution is still working on the matter and finalizing the evidence of the conspiracy.

Besigye Heroes welcome

Why we know that authorities does in these occasions by now:

“A traffic gridlock is building up in Kampala Central District for the second day running. Several roads leading to and around the high court in the heart of Kampala have again been closed by the police ahead of the ruling on the bail application” (88.2 Sanyu FM, 12.07.2016). As there are even reports after the hearing and the scheduled driving home through Central Kampala as people wanted to greet the battled politician who we’re driving home, the Police had to beat on the public to get them away from the car and the areas surrounding it. The famous “Koboko Squad” they are nicknamed.

The truth for matter it is, the house in Kasangati, just by pictures of his release home. Proves that Kasangati Police Force have been put in regard of the situation and I am sure that Police Commander James Kawalya are prepared with all the tools as his disposal, as they would not totally grant his freedom, even if the General Election is over and the “Business as Usual”. Though they, the NRM and President Museveni have the problem of legitimate rule as long as Besigye is around and questioning them.

What sure will happen on one point is that his staged freedom from the Government, will become so much that he will detain him at Naggalama Police Station or Kiira Road Police Station, before the sunrise that particular day as the nuances of crowds and cheering public when he passes by, just as seen today. The friction between the public and the police are also vivid as the second nicknamed police “Kifeesi Police” is around and violating their rights as there are beating and harassing citizens who comes to greet the People’s President.

Besigye Kasangati 12.07.2016

We can now ask ourselves, in honest approach, even with a little happiness as the waiting for his release from unsolicited detention as a suspect of treason. What will be the next verdict and the next way for the government to torment the man and arch-nemesis of Museveni? Because it is about time and effort from the Executive to take man down and trying to break, even if it has failed a hundred times already.

I wish it would not happen and that true justice would prevail, if so the man would be residing and be the man who runs the State House at Nakasero and in Entebbe. But alas that is not the equation right now, as the stolen country and stolen funds are in the hands of gun-loving President who has no fear and no quarrel to lie and deceive to keep the power he remains. The question just happen to be, by what force and to what extent does the Police Force and Army plan to continue their Post-Election Modus Operandi and to what degree?

He has his momentary freedom back and greeted by his supporters, but for how long. How long will the authorities, accept the conundrum and let it be. What will the Army infused NRM do to the greatest dissidents and his loyal cadres? That they haven’t already done and what level of oppression against the already hard-battled and destructive political games from the Executive? We can just question, but in the next few days the picture will be clear, and the obvious result is that somewhere will Besigye be behind bars and inside a Police Station, while waiting to be sanctioned his God given freedom, yet again. Peace.
