It is evident for every single day. That the Republic isn’t the same for the opposition in comparison to the National Resistance Movement (NRM). It is two separate entities, as the rules are not the same for one party versus the others. That is really proven by the actions made by the state in recent days.
A few times now, a Presidential Candidate, I don’t take seriously, but the state does. Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde has been blocked from campaigning several of places. The local authorities have blocked him.
Also, a lot of tear-gas and blocking of rallies towards Patrick Oboi Amuriat. The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Presidential Candidate is also seeing the blunt force of the authorities. They are coming with weapons, tear-gas and using all tools to stop the campaign of the FDC front-runner.
They you have Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the National Unity Platform (NUP). The Presidential Candidate who are always under fire. Bobi Wine cannot do anything without being followed by both Police and army. The police has already arrested him and he spent two days in jail for trying to campaign. His Presidential Advance Team was arrested yesterday. Several of the Aspirants for MP has been behind bars in the recent days too. Therefore, know that the NUP and Bobi Wine is challenged at every single move.
So, today’s tear-gas and blocking Bobi Wine from accessing a town isn’t new. However, it shows how the state operates. Because, the state and the ones aligned with the President can breach the COVID-19 regulations, they hold processions and have giant rallies in their campaigns. As long as your Yellow. The sickness and COVID-19 doesn’t affect the politics. Nevertheless, it is easily spreading when the Opposition candidates shows up. Then its a danger and read-all-about-it.
Not like the President and his candidates isn’t breaching it. They will claim they have smaller rallies for the photo-ops of the H.E. Nevertheless we are seeing the pictures of Bebe Cool and others waving on the roadside with several of people. Far reaching the levels of appreciated crowds for the opposition.
That is why there is one Republic for the NRM and the President. Where certain rules and regulations doesn’t matter. It hasn’t any consequences…
Still, the same laws and regulations are applied totally differently for Bobi Wine and the rest of the Opposition. These are living in a different Republic…
It cannot be the same place or with the same rules. As it isn’t applied in the same manner. It got to be the same place. If it was, why do they at all crazy and violent when the opposition shows up? But is all at ease on the crowds with the NRM?
This is why it cannot be the same place, the same Republic and with the same government. It cannot be and it shouldn’t be. One is Uganda and the Wakanda. The NRM cannot defend this and it is impunity. It is injustice and unfair. However, that is what the NRM does and we know it is the same place. Even if it shouldn’t be. These two actions under the same regime shouldn’t be possible, but it is. Since, the army and police is only honouring the President and not the general public. Peace.
