Opinion: Museveni’s response to Kaweesi’s assassination is horrendous, typical blame-game and pure retaliation with force!

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is more focused on putting blame on anyone else than himself, yesterday as the family and friends we’re mourning the killed police officers and driver. Instead of coming with a speech of solace and care for the deceased, care about the loss of life and show some integrity as the President. Instead, the man of 3 decades tried to pin the assassination on all other institutions and on all other leaders who has failed, but not him. The outtake of the speech and message is under neath!

President Museveni message at the house of Kaweesi yesterday:

Now these criminals have shifted to methods of using motorcycles. They are doing this because the boda bodas are many and they think they can hide. We have arrested some of these criminals and others are still at large. I want to tell these criminals that we shall get you. We shall kill you or capture you. But if they don’t want to die, let them surrender. I want to assure Ugandans that this is a cowardly crude act that we shall defeat. These criminals are going to die because they’re killing our people, young people who we are using to build institutions. The second group are the public servants. I have had a hard time explaining our priorities as a country to this fraction of the population because their commitment is to themselves alone. Projects like the installation of security cameras on roads have been stalling because of misplaced priorities into salary increments and such. As a result we now have idiots getting away with murder and instilling unnecessary fear in our people. This is putting undue pressure on our security agencies who are working under very strenuous circumstances in cases like these. This must stop. The third group is the Police and other security agencies. There is a growing concern of infiltration in these organs. Stories of leaking information, intimidating and even sometimes killing witnesses are coming to me. This is undermining our strong relations with the wanainchi who now don’t want to work with our security organs. I would like to caution that you young people in these agencies are letting yourselves down” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – 19.03.2017).

That there are problematic crime and violence is not something to hide, that their killings and murders happening in Uganda, as the Teso killings and others are being uncovered, as there been reports of criminals interfering in the Police Force. That should be priority of the President to change leadership and stop the groups creating violence and killings. Not just blame them when on of the men in-charge, the AIGP Kaweesi was brutally murders 100 meters away from his own home.

That the President Museveni says this murders put fears into people, the same levels as the killings of Police Force during the rallies at the election, the post-election killings in Bundibugyo or Kasese. Therefore, there are instances where the Police Force could have shown the ability of transparency and justice. Instead, the republic are now filled with uncertainty if they can trust the police as the 3rd in command of the Police could even be touched and fall.

That President Museveni talks about avenging the murder on a wake, is spineless and shows his fatigue as a leader, instead of begging for mercy and asking forgiveness as the man in charge and the man who played a vital part in the AIGP life. He stood there blaming the Police Command and blaming civil servants. Not a second he cared about the family or the deceased legacy.

President Museveni was more concerned with putting blame on the ones that we’re around him. Not trying to be the one in charge. Since everyone is else is at fault. So now the IGP Kale Kayihura has work to do, as the President has designated that all issues is in his shop! However, this is more systematic than that when the third in command of the Police is gunned down with his loyal men on an early Friday morning.

Still, the President ungrateful and unforgiving puts blame on the ones he can and says he has done enough. AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi was a loyal Police Commander and one who worked tirelessly for the regime, still his own legacy will be tarnished by the acts of his fellow commanders. Kaweesi, did his duty to suppress people and work under IGP Kayihura. What President Museveni didn’t do in speech on the wake of Kaweesi, was to let the man rest in respect and let the fellow men who fall, fall in grace for their duty. Instead, the Commander-in-Chief is more working for his own goodwill, than caring for the ones who lost their lives. Peace.

Opinion: Why was the Police blocking Besigye from the Requiem Mass At Rubaga Cathedral?

I am sometimes boggled by the disregard for justice that are in Uganda, that the Opposition leader Dr. Kizza Besigye of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) that had been to Nakawa Court to prove that he had not fled the country, while his long-term pending treason charge case continues unto the heart of President Yoweri Museveni stops beating, that is my guess by now.

Still, Besigye could not be part of the Requiem Mass at Rubaga Cathedral, as the dignitaries and mourning family was gathered to remember the assassinated Assistant Inspector General of Police Andrew Felix Kaweesi. This was a mass in celebration for the life that the AIGP did have before the fatal mourning this Friday.

Though as the state did attend the Police Officer and Guard in Amuria district:

Internal Affairs Minister, General Haji Abubaker Jeje Odongo has arrived at the burial of Corporal Kenneth Erau who will be laid to rest today in Orungo sub-county in Amuria district” (87.7 Baba FM, 20.03.2017).

IGP Kale Kayihura and the NRM regime must be insane to stop him, but let all the others attend the mass. That just shows the, not pardon me, the tyranny and the standard of oppression the NRM are doing on the daily basis to the ones questioning the legitimacy of the NRM. That they cannot have the stomach and the ability to let him take part of state mourning of a fallen comrade in the Police. The man who has spent the most time in prison and been detained by all of the politicians combined in the republic. So, if somebody should be parts of the mass, it was him!

This regime doesn’t have the courage or the ability to give any way or show mercy on anyone, except for the ones loyal to the President. The rest are in the wind without any safe land to land on. I don’t know who gave this order if it was UPF Kayihura, CID, Special Force Command, Gen. Salim Selah or President Museveni himself. Still, it seem like a foolish betray of justice and rule of law to stop, yet again the opposition leader to be in church. They have detained him for going to church in All Saints after the election in 2016. This is in the same alley. So the UPF and the Security Organizations of Uganda has nowadays no quarrel to challenge the idea of what is justice and the injustice. Peace.

Quotes and Outtakes from the newest UN Report on Violence in South Sudan!

South Sudan Cartoon

Here is the basic outtake from a report that was released on the 9th March 2016 from the United Nations Office of Human Rights Council. This focused on the matters of human rights and dignity, as it looks at the laws and regulations, how the state affairs with the matter and create safety and security for their people while not taken away their trust and their justice as free men and woman. As the Government of South Sudan has signed and ratified certain statues and human rights laws into their own as a civilized government who want to be respected and seen as a respectable state.

The major problems and issues is not only stemming from sexual violence towards the public as many has addressed, I have also taken that into the picture, but I want to show you the more of it, but not go into the laws and the ratifications, as that is important. For the moment we should all just see the pains that have unjustified hit many of the South Sudanese as the differences between Generals has hurt them. Take a look!

Salva Kiir P2

Internally Displaced Persons in South Sudan:

“By December 2014, more than 1.4 million South Sudanese had been displaced internally, while approximately 467,000 people had fled to surrounding countries. Additionally, roughly four million people in the country faced serious food insecurity. Humanitarian access continued to be hampered by fighting and violence perpetrated by both parties to the conflict against aid workers, equipment and infrastructure. In Unity and Upper Nile states, active hostilities and insecurity continued to disrupt humanitarian assistance as well as, road and air access” (…)”By mid-December 2014, more than 100,000 civilians were housed in UNMISS compounds – designated “protection of civilians sites” (POC sites) – because they were too afraid to return home, fearing potential violence. The bulk of these internally displaced persons (IDPs) were in Bentiu (43,000 people), Juba (32,000) and Malakal (17,000)” (UN OHRC, 2016)

Violence against IDPs:

“For example in Bentiu the SPLA soldiers have taken aggressive postures towards civilians in the PoC site. On 30 September, UNMISS witnessed approximately 20 SPLA soldiers in uniform, including child soldiers, outside the entrance of the PoC site pointing their weapons, including a vehicle with a mounted machine gun” (UN OHRC, 2016).

In Lakes State:

“In Lakes State, inter-communal conflict among different Dinka clans has continued despite efforts by the Government and state authorities to defuse tensions. Revenge attacks, including acts of sexual violence, continued in relation to the killing of a Paramount Chief in Cuei-Chok Payam on 5 August. In response to the violence, the Government has increased its security presence in the State. However, this has given rise to further violations as a result of heavy handed measures sometimes adopted by the security forces” (UN OHRC, 2016).

In Easter Equatoria:

“Eastern Equatoria has also witnessed major incidents of inter-communal violence, including on 6 December, in Loronyo, Torit, where several civilians, including women and children were killed. Reports received indicated that human rights violations were committed by security forces sent to the area in response to the violence, including sexual violence and looting of property. Likewise, the deterioration in the security situation in Chukudum in Budi County, Eastern Equatoria, in September and October, led to allegations of human rights violations by the SPLA, including arbitrary detention, torture and extra-judicial killings” (UN OHRC, 2016).

In Western Equatoria:

“In Western Equatoria, the influx of armed Dinka pastoralists from Lakes and Jonglei with their large numbers of cattle has seen an increase in tension with host communities, particularly in the Mundri West County areas.  In Central Equatoria State, UNMISS monitored developments in clashes between the Kuku and Madi communities spanning the border between Kajo Keji in South Sudan and Moyo district in Uganda, resulting in several deaths in both communities and the displacement of between 8,000 and 10,000 civilians from the Ugandan side to the South Sudanese side of the border” (UN OHRC, 2016).

UNMISS

Conflict related sexual violence:

“State officials allege that at least 20 women were abducted from Souq sabi, Dere, and Lich University and taken to Guit and Nhialdiu. Allegations have also been made that SPLM/A-IO used rape as a punishment for suspected Government sympathizers” (…)”In another incident, in December, three women out of a group of 30 were reportedly raped by SPLA soldiers while proceeding to a village located near the PoC site in Bentiu, after soldiers allegedly asked them to join them and then shot at the group” (…)”Incidents of sexual violence have also been reported in the context of inter-communal violence. In Lakes State, women and children have reportedly been used as proxies for revenge, including through rape. In Rumbek East, the allegation that the paramount chief of the Guony clan was murdered by the Thuyic clan reportedly ignited a wave of retaliatory attacks, including reports of rape against women and children” (UN OHRC, 2016).

Child Soldiers:

“Child soldiers have been observed in Bentiu, Malakal and Kuajok. Between September and November, UNICEF documented more than 70 incidents of grave violations against children affecting more than 2,000 children” (…)”During the reporting period, the SPLA issued new orders prohibiting the recruitment and use of children by the SPLA as well as occupation of schools. On 8 October, the United Nations submitted to the Government and SPLA a list of 20 schools reportedly used by the SPLA for military purposes” (UN OHRC, 2016).

I think the words in the reports say’s enough and I won’t comment on it; as the violence and actions are so straightforward and harsh. The people are victims and the reasons behind it should be sorted out. As they are violated, injured, harassed and killed by armies and militias while they are searching for power or keeping power. Peace.

Press Release: Missing Aine Christopher still wanted by Police (Published 08.01.2016)

Go Forward 17.12.15 Free Aine

This is to inform the public that the police are still actively looking for Aine Christopher, who remains missing, but believed to be in hiding, over his alleged involvement and connectivity to acts of assault occasioning bodily and grievous harm, to several victims in Ntungamo District, and also, in response to the criminal summons issued against him by the Chief Magistrates Court, in Jinja.

We want to reiterate that despite the fact that questionable images of a “dead photo”, were published and also posted in the print and social media, we highly believe the suspect is alive, and our police notice for his arrest remain valid. We therefore, call upon members of the public who may be having knowledge of his whereabouts to provide it, so as to enable us establish the circumstances surrounding his alleged disappearance.

We are also calling upon Aine Christopher to come forward and hand himself over to the police for statement recording that would be beneficial to him as an individual, his immediate family, the public that has very keen interest in this matter and for criminal justice.

The police have meanwhile arrested Charles Rwomushana, on credible information that the dangerous and questionable pictures of a “dead Aine” were widely circulated by him online. He is now assisting police with investigations. The two others who published the photos without verifying their correctness and authenticity were released on police bond upon recording their statements.

The sad story of Christopher Aine

Amama Masaka 16.11.15 Poster

We live in times where the regime has gone further and made moves that is just unjustified. Hon. Amama Mbabazi the former PM of Uganda and one of the independent presidential candidates in the general election of February 2016; have strong issues with the ruling NRM-Regime he we’re a former member of and in the inner circles of.

Hon. Amama Mbabazi is running and has a campaign team under the Go-Forward Group and The Democratic Alliance (TDA). Parts of that is a security detail that is restricted under the Electoral Commission under guidelines of the Uganda Police Force. Dr. Badru M. Kiggundu should know about this because he verifies and validates the running sheets and applications. IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura has knowledge of the security detail and usually adding people and weapons to secure the presidential candidate.

Go Forward 17.12.15 Free Aine

In this picture we’re the Security Detail of Amama Mbabazi where a brother who run it and we’re the aid of him, Christopher Aine. He is now a pivotal man and also a part of the struggle that Mbabazi had with the government. On the 13th December 2015 the election-violence that we’re sponsored by NRM and showed with cars of Sarah Kaglingo; this is where the local Regional District Police Commander helping to facilitate the Crime Preventers to make it happen!

The aftermath have been Go-Forward Security Team have been jailed. Christopher Aine went missing from around 17th December 2015 and never really surfaced since then. Mr Aine was picked up on December 17th at a round 6:00am by security officers from Bbunga, a Kampala suburb and taken to unknown destination along Luwero.

MuseveniQuote

On 20th December 2015 Mzee said this:

“If you put your hands in the anus of a leopard, you are in trouble” (…)“Thugs attacked NRM supporters. They are being rounded up, you cannot attack Ugandans. How can you attack NRM supporters in Uganda?  They’ll regret it”. He surely meant somebody in general that day.

The rest of the Go-Forward Security Team went to jail and other people involved in the campaign of Amama Mbabazi went to jail in the two weeks after Ntungamo clashes and election-violence. There we’re 17 people arrested at the Headquarter in Kampala on the 21st December; on the same day at the residence of JPAM four people we’re jailed. But still at this time there we’re no proof of Christopher Aine.

IGP Kale Kayihura Quote

1st January 2016 IGP Kale Kayihura went public with this:

“Police has issued notice to the public appealing for any information as to his whereabouts so that we apprehend him to answer charges relating to the incidents of beatings in Ntungamo district” (…)”We have put a reward of Shs 20 million for anyone who can help Police with information leading to his arrest and prosecution”.

2nd January 2016 IGP Kale Kayihura said this:

“Aine is the key suspect in the Ntungamo incident but he has not yet been apprehended, as he is on the run or in hiding. As police, we are offering a Shs20m reward for anyone who will tell us where he is hiding”.

On the early 6th January IGP Kale Kayihura have asked the Go-Forward Camp to bring forward Christopher Aine. Since they must be hiding him somewhere; Kayihura accuses the camp of hiding Aine, who is wanted for participating in clashes between National Resistance Movement (NRM) and Go-Forward supporters in Ntungamo district.

On the late night 6th January the photos of a deceased Christopher Aine arrived online. I will not show it. This photos we’re released by Charles Rwomushana. They we’re later released on the 7th January in the Daily Monitor and Red Paper newspapers this have led to the editors being jailed for showing them to the public, which we’re already floating online for close to 24 hours. Here is the letter that the Police sent to Red Pepper today.

Aine 7.1.16 UPF

 

Also on the 6th January 2016:

“Youth activists led by Norman Tumuhimbise, the National coordinator of the Jobless Brotherhood launched a manhunt for Aine at the home of his mother Jennifer Namuleme in Katale zone in Semuto town council in Nakaseke district. According to Tumuhimbise, they intend to raise Shillings 40 million to reward whoever will provide information on Aine’s whereabouts”.

On the 7th January 2016 CP Fred Enanga has claimed the photo circulated where manipulated. While the sister of Christopher Aine and brother has claimed it to be him and have visited the Kampala Capital City Authority Mortuary to find the body and collect the remains of their deceased brother. Relatives of missing independent presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi’s aide Christopher Aine, have failed to trace his body at the mortuary, where they had gone to check for the reported dead body this morning. So after this the have claimed again that the family and Go-Forward are hiding Aine somewhere.

Also today the sister of Aine want’s the police to issue an warrant on the media who have published the photos, while CP Fred Enanga want the Jinja Road Magistrate to issue an warrant for the missing Christopher Aine. Later in the day today we’re just one editor of Red Pepper Newspaper who had to give statements to the Police. Now hours after three editors are detained from the paper is under arrest for releasing the story to the press. Police claims they know where he is missing.

Afterthought:

This here is starting to seem like UPF need better spin-doctors because nothing fits, I am just waiting for them to detain the sister for false-claim of picture in the media. The Ntungamo Clashes that we’re NRM’s fault have proven the issues of the one-man rule and their way of vengeance. Live free or die harder!

IGP Kale Kayihura tries to look good and make his men look wise. The same with CP Fed Enanga they might trick the die-hard illiterate hillbilly who hasn’t got their mind of their own. The rest of us see through it. There are too many loose points to the story and the police have a violent record that is longer than the hospital records at the Kings Hospital Mulago in Kampala.

That the UPF is after such a long while UGX 20m proves that there is something missing; it must be because he we’re an aide to the Go-Forward Presidential Candidate Amama Mbabazi. If he we’re one of the kids or people being washed on the shore at Lake Victoria during late-December 2015. Then we would know they we’re extra serious, that was a big group of people who lost their lives. Christopher Aine is important and the trust issues between Police Force and the people of Uganda they are supposed to serve. It proves that the Aine case is special and that it wouldn’t be weird if Special Forces Command is behind the abduction and made-him-go-missing. Later letting him loses his life. Uganda Police Force have taken people in the night and after social media and other people react they surface like Norman Tumuhimbise and Vincent Kaggwa we’re missing for two days in July 2015 and the family had to task the Police to release his all of a sudden with bruises and such. There is something wrong with Police and their actions toward opposition members and leaders in Uganda. Christopher Aine’s story is a sad one and he seems like he is deceased and hurt by the Police of Uganda by the Photos released online and published by the Red Paper Newspaper. I am just sad for the family, the Go-Forward Team and the election in general since this a useless death. A person is more valuable than power, money or elections.

That the Police can that easy take a life and get rid-off opposition figures brings worry of the state of rights in Uganda. The Police is not serving the people if they are killing the aid of Amama Mbabazi. That proves the issues between Amama Mbabazi and Yoweri Kaguta Museveni are too deep. Something is missing and this can’t be joked about. Christopher Aine did not live to die for nothing. Nothing is an election that President Museveni rigged, that he rigged yet again. Like he has done before; Christopher Aine was a supporter of Mbabazi. General Election of 2016 is so close and the killing seems forced by the power to sprint fear in the Go-Forward/TDA Camp to intimidate them from delivering and making the election harder for Mzee.

Mzee and his henchmen have gone too far. Mzee and his police have not told anything meaningful on the people on the shore of Lake Victoria. They might not be political killings like Christopher Aine. Aine is a manifestation of political violence and the deepest tragedy in this part of the campaign trail. That is a senseless murder of an innocent guard of a Presidential Candidate after the Ntungamo clashes. The Ntungamo clashes that Mzee claimes is Go-Forward supporters fault; which by now have to be credited NRM and their Police, who is clearing their name by killing Aine. The truth will come out; the worst is that this is just one out of many suspicious deaths. So many cars and automobile accidents with important people dies and election violence from the NRM-Regime will be tainted by this. If the international media catch-on, I doubt that, they only care if it is a gay brother who dies, because they matter more than political-killings for the moment. I don’t know why, but Christopher Aine should matter as much as David Kato, but trust me for the international media; they doesn’t see that way, even if I wish it be different. Aine deserves to be the crown-example of the violence in the name of National Resistance Movements Police Force in Uganda. Surely he is! Though the outcome is sad and that the UPF does what it can to spin-it differently. The world need to know the truth and the world want to know what really happened.

The loss of life that is Christopher Aine for being the aide of Amama Mbabazi in this time and day make me sad and furious. The way CP Enanga and IGP Kayihura tries to pin it differently is to wash their hands clean. Still, there are too many plots moving and the violence of the police and following the Uganda Police Force this seems likely. IGP Kayihura told the press earlier in the timeline that he just follows orders. Mzee can snap his mind and could have ordered it like Pizza and IGP Kayihura would say “Kale Ssebo”. So the life of Aine and his life will be remembered for the way the NRM-Regime acts towards the public and hurts the opposition, not serving them or giving them any steady-progress! Peace.
