Dr. Kizza Besigye’s advice for termination of the NRM!

If you ever want the clear advice to bring down the dictatorship of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who now acts and lives like he owns the Republic Uganda. Than if you want to get rid of that and want to use the advice of Forum for Democratic Change founder and former Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye. Than his words and inspirational words should be for you. He explains the whole story and the whole theft of the state and how it was built around the President. How Museveni has taken all the institutions and the state is embedded with him. But that we already knows, therefore I have taken the part that people should listen to and use. The true defiance and defy the Museveni state, so that there are possible a peaceful transition from his rule. Where the state doesn’t belong to Museveni or the Movement, but to the people. The Citizens has a government who cares about delivery and not if Museveni get an expensive enough airplane or helicopter. Take a look!

Outtake from the Press Conference of Dr. Kizza Besigye today:

Regardless of what the regime does, the people of Uganda are definitely closing in to take back their power and embark on a TRANSITION to a new dispensation.

The NRM/Museveni Junta has no legitimacy to amend the Uganda Constitution as it’s planning to do. This will be an activity of the TRANSTION PROCESS.

Immediate task: Termination of the NRM/Museveni Junta:

The following needs to be done to terminate the Junta’s control of our country:

1) Intensify the “awakening campaign”, for most Ugandans to become active in the processes of achieving a transition. Everyone has a role to play in achieving this.

2) Forming activist networks to make it possible to act together and to be coordinated.

3)Everyone seeking a democratic transition should take deliberate actions, individually or in concert with others to disempower and break down the Junta. Each one’s actions, however small, contribute significantly towards the desired change.

4) Public servants, including those in the security and military are called upon to join the struggle for democratic transition.

5) In coordination with other political and civil society formations, we’ll soon start various activities that will disempower and bring the, now fragile, Junta to an end.

The transition:

A transition process will start when the Junta ceases the control of the state- either, through popular actions or a dialogue process.

The key activities of the transition period are:

1) Government of National Unity.

2) A comprehensive review of the Constitution.

3) Rebuilding State institutions to ensure transparency in recruitment and a national character, a high standard of performance and public accountability; non-partisan character; high standard of discipline and professionalism etc.

4) Truth telling, justice and reconciliation.

5) Free and Fair elections” (Dr. Kizza Besigye, 11.07.2017).

The acts of defiance and trying to coordinate the powers to be. Make the state dissolution over the citizens who doesn’t act upon the oppressive measures dropped by the central government. That they does what they can locally to make changes to the state. This done in demonstrations and stop using the state based operations that makes the NRM regime so rich and can rig themselves into power. That they follow a leadership similar to Besigye and other who trying to dismantle the Presidency. For the simplest reason of getting democracy and getting rid of the dictatorship of Museveni. These words of Besigye should be seen as the guidelines for the patriots and the ones who wants the Republic run by elected men, and not selected men by the NRM. This is how it is now.

The NRM acts like they own the nation and the state, the State is controlled from the State House and the orders are from there. There aren’t anything done without the State House involved, that isn’t a healthy state. That is a Banana Republic and an undemocratic state where one-voice control it all. There is time for change, it has been a long time for change. This cannot only be done by the freedom fighter Besigye, but has to happen by the will and acts of the people. The people have to say, enough is enough. The impunity, the theft and the ignorance of needs of the people is enough. Time to stand-up and be together in the struggle for just ice, liberty and accountability. For a regime who wants to deliver government services and also give taxation with representation. Something that isn’t done now by this government and the President. Peace.

Opinion: It’s total silence not defiance anymore

Dr. Kizza Besigye Quote Outspend

The Campaign of Defiance is dead, because the compliance has sunk the ship of Defiance that we’re ushered in with the Presidential Campaign of 2015/2016 of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and for the Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye. The rigged and fraudulent election went down, the President since 1986 President Yoweri Museveni triggered election victory with 100% in dozens of districts and acted vicious in others; that are known opposition strongholds like Kampala, Wakiso and others. Therefore the FDC and Besigye should have and could have grievances on the methods of suppression of the votes.

Besigye’s campaign of defiance was a grand idea in the darkness of an oppressive regime under the National Resistance Movement. The NRM has for decades and during previous elections used public funds, used the state and security organizations to spread fear instead of free and fair election. As well as hiring fellow cronies in the Electoral Commission that we’re working directly on orders for the Movement instead of securing the popular vote, as well as using the Police Force and the Army to show where the loyalty should be, also gifts of soaps, food and small fees to take part of rallies in the districts. This has been NRMs way of spreading loyalty and fear mixed together.

So the Defiance campaign was a good idea, to defy the rigged system and state apparatus that has eaten the whole plate and only follows orders of loyal cronies of Museveni. That in itself was genuine and straight-forward plan from Besigye, only if more of the citizens and the party he was apart of really believed in it. As with time the defying plans has been silenced, the fighting the machine and corrupt behaviour of the state has turned silent.

MbabaziTDA110915P1

The FDC and the defiance after the failing Election Petition of the Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi in Supreme Court, the FDC and Besigye hasn’t had the levels of defiance in them or tried to defy the structures that validates the regime. The FDC has turned into compliance as the swearing-in of Museveni happen and the Members of Parliament we’re sworn-in after the fraudulent election. It was topped when certain MPs went into Shadow-Parliament and legitimized the Movement.

So with this the FDC themselves did comply with Museveni and his fellow cronies instead of defying the ruler. They went into the chambers made sure they got paid and later trying to follow the lead of Besigye isn’t believable. That the same men and woman who easily take the small-change at the Parliament and later goes to FDC Prayers is playing to games.

The Short-Con is the Shadow-Cabinet and validating the rule of Museveni to make sure their pockets are filled and that their MPs respectability is fixed so their families and friends are secured. But with this they are forgetting the long-term damage to be parts of Movements skin-democracy.

The Long-Con is that with the sharing parts of the skin-democracy and playing the game of the freedom fighters while not really working the cause. So the long-con is some of the FDC leadership roles right now, only patching the hurt, but not trying to rebuild.

FDC 05.05.2016 Planned March

The Defiance Campaign was about defying the Movement… something that the FDC didn’t do, which is complicated and also lacking of moral support from the FDC while he was serving time in Moroto and Luzira. They might show up to gates of the prison and even say publicly that they condemn the Police Force actions against the democratic and rights to assemble as an opposition party.

So the plan of Defiance wasn’t supposed to be one-man band, Besigye wasn’t supposed to carry it on his own. Besigye weren’t alone as we could see youths, P-10 Groups and FDC-Diaspora we’re supportive efforts. You had and still have Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and Gen. David Sejusa. Still, they have very few others who have been under fire at the same level without trading their souls, there is Ingrid Turinawe and Doreen Nyanjura has fought battles without much to gain.

That the silence in general should be worrying as the Police Force are continuing to battle with Besigye, his house is still besieged and the man is monitored every movement. If he breaks the barrier and creates public excitement, than it’s straight into detention or police brutality cases towards the crowds that surge the man.

Besigye should be free, the country should be free, but the silence isn’t saving anything. The silence has settled the defiance campaign and the mentality of the defiance agenda. They didn’t build momentum enough to stop the daily life and hurt the business of the movement. The defiance didn’t stop the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) from collecting VAT or stop exports of fuel. The Defiance didn’t stop the UPDF from getting new recruits or any other possible monetary deficiency the campaign could do. Just like the shops stopping trading as the shop-keepers we’re even detained for doing so, because it hurt the taxation and trade that the Movement needs to run their merry-go-round of graft and embezzlement of public funds.

The Defiance could have worked if the FDC and Besigye had gotten the momentum and had the public will behind them, not the half-ready pile of work, sort of like the way the Police Force in Uganda picks up intelligence as they see fit in forged police case. The FDC could have used the anger and frustration of the public, the citizens who feel used.

So the May Protest this year we’re starting of profound messages that the citizens we’re on the road of pressing the government. So much we’re ready as they remembered the recent thieving of their future from the Movement yet again, the wounds we’re fresh. Still the army had been in the streets, the Police Force we’re targeting the opposition and also civil society offices we’re attacked.

FDC Youth 14.03.2016

The people shouldn’t be silenced as the Christmas season are in line, the FDC cannot carry this alone, not that all of them wanted the defiance; they wanted the easy compliance life of the pseudo-opposition instead of a fighting defying organization that could get rid of the militarized movement that been running it since the 1980s. That should be KEY. That should be the goal of the FDC; instead many went into legitimizing it.

So the silenced is understandable, Besigye and his trials cannot be of only him and it isn’t, but it is many who has given in and went back to business-as-usual. Besigye could have more support from the FDC NEC, but he hasn’t. They don’t have the backbone and the wish to succeed. They gave in when it was going against the grain. They we’re risking it all and couldn’t. While Besigye is again under a “treason” charge as others who are questioning the Movement; the others are walking free and without any Court Orders in their name.

It’s not like the man who took the power by the gun want to leave silent or let it go easy, he fought a brutal bush-war. Now he has a big-army and guerrillas of M23, Museveni got allies of USA and Russia dropping arms in his favour so he can suppress his people. Citizens can fight this, but they cannot only rely on Besigye. Besigye only has power if the people are behind him. If the people are working with to dismantle the regime, but the silent obedient citizens are changing an illegitimate regime. Civil disobedience and systematic effort to discontinue the regime would be true defying the Movement. Instead the silence is what is running the tides as 2017 are coming around the corner. Peace.

My letter to retired Gen. Mugisha Muntu on the recent moves made by the FDC

Mugisha Muntu 23.01.2016 Hoima District

Oslo 15. August 2016

Dear Gen. Mugisha Muntu and the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) National Executive Committee (NEC). This is not easy to write to you, so forgive me for my misgivings, but this has to be addressed.

I write to you today because of the worrying disbelief of methods to get rid of the police-state and the totalitarian behaviour of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and the three decades run of affairs under President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. The reason for my writing is the concern of your party and the ways of backing away from going against the NRM.

I know you will not like my words Gen. Mugisha Muntu, even as democratic men we are we have to listen to each other and respect the opinions as they are for the greater good in the end. Like the Executive, President Museveni wouldn’t listen to me at all and wanted to jail me in the first second, I guess becasue he knew of my toxic writing. Because he is always right and the only man in the nation with a vision; I believe you are different and wiser than the current leader of your nation.

The state of affairs is not solid. President Museveni is a walking budget and uses the army and police to monitor and throwing your leaders and supporters behind bars. Using the judiciary as a tool of oppressing the FDC; the party you lead isn’t as strong as you think. If it we’re than you wouldn’t go against the man who gain public endorsement and public admiration anywhere in the republic. Something you are not gaining. I know you want to be more central, but you will always be second in command after Dr. Kizza Besigye. Besigye will lead in frontline, the hardliner and not the compromised parts of the party you run.

The compromised party of the FDC are the FDC NEC that let go of the man while he was lingering in Luzira Maximum Prison on the Treason Charge that he is still battling for questioning the “victory” of the NRM after the casting of the ballot in General Election 2016. This should been known and understandable of those feelings. As him and his loyal ally Erias Lukwago are still battling charges of the election of 2011 and the ‘Walk to Work’ protest. This should give you an indication of the usage of political gains through the courts instead of through the ballots.

Gen. Mugisha Muntu, I will be frank the Shadow Cabinet you have approved should be revoked and discontinued as it is not another thing that validating the Executive and his 10th Parliament. Your decisions after the equilibrium and defeats of the Defiance campaign; you gave up and gave in to a few silver coins and made-up titles to stay so-called relevant in current politics. Instead of giving legitimacy to the NRM Regime you are supposed to stop and work against.

FDC 05.05.2016 Planned March

Honourable Muntu, you seem smart and wise. You seem like a man of reason and grand heart as you have showed through the recent years in the leadership of the FDC. But somewhere the battle and the building of the FDC have tired your mind and you seem more defeated than ready to fix the issues of the Republic. Therefore the reasons for defending the decisions to cease the Defiance Campaign and go into Shadow Cabinet shows so; I know that the party are heavy monitored that the Political landscape are militarized and corrupted.

That is why Hon. Mugisha Muntu that the NAADs are broke, companies being bailed out, SACCO’s needed extra funds and this is just basically government programmes to stimulate growth in the agricultural production. The others are the way the government under the NRM are hiring and firing health-works while not sufficiently fund the hospitals or salaries while the Hospitals are dwindling down like water at the Sipi Fall, all the way in a steady pace. And you believe that the negotiations and questioning of power in Parliament will bring down the NRM, really?

There is a part of me that is routing for you and also in sorrow of your bowed head. I understand you need food and your need peace. As the Defiance campaign made the fear of nation go into an evil spiral where even loyal youth leaders we’re tortured and citizens without court orders or a charge where lingering in jail just for being affiliated with the party under your leadership. I understand that might have torn you mind and tormented your faith in progressive change for the better. Because the power of the Police Force and Army has not dwindled or went weak, it has been strengthen and used more illegitimate means to silence the FDC. As with the court order to suspend the Defiance Campaign that had to be suspended after the reasonable doubt of interference in the FDC. This reality seems like has crushed your spirit and hope of a positive journey as long as President Museveni seems to be on the throne and run the nation as his own pocket.

This mentality and broken spirit is visible, the heart and passion of your decisions are not there. It’s hard for me to say this. But I have to, as man who stands by Besigye because he is totally opposite of Museveni. Norbert Mao is cool, but doesn’t have the suction or flamboyant means of gaining popular support. Olara Otunnu have stopped as career politician therefore he is not in the game. Hon. James Akena is pawn for Museveni and therefore the UPC is branch on the NRM-O party tree. UFA and the legacy of the opposition party is history with Kamaya speaking as a true NRM person and lost her ways.

While Besigye is the one within reason and with his mental capacity to fight with his own tears, fears and torture still fights on. He is hitting the wall and being incarcerated again and again. Still, he has more heart than you! Hon. Mugisha Muntu you are not even taking in and detained, most likely it is Ingrid Turinawe, Doreen Nyanjura and so many other top-officials have been either house-arrested or being detained at random. While you could walk around proud in Kampala; there we’re only during certain besieging of the FDC Headquarters in Kampala that you got detained during the last election cycle. Therefore you have a guarding angle who leave you be. While the rest are taken away their rights and freedoms of assembly without question! That should be questioned and I do it here, how come that you often get scotch free while other party members and party officials get detained?

I hope to see the spark, see the light, see the vision of the man I once saw. Hon. Mugisha Muntu, you can be the leader that many of us admire and respect, but if you wavier and give in; you will be remembered for stabbing your own journey for safety instead of finishing the job. Certainly if you show your true character and not the sorry face of desperation and arguments for the Shadow Cabinet… the reality is something you can turn and therefore I write in a plea to you. So you can see. If not than you will go down as sorry man of a possible great party with not only liberation, freedom and peace. Instead you are the one that once again gave way to the NRM to run the nation on borrowed time. Is that your legacy Hon. Muntu?

Peace.

Budget Financing Lies in Balance – Besigye (Youtube-Clip)

“Former Forum for Democratic President retired Col Dr. Kizza Besigye casts doubt on government hopes to raise 26 trillion shillings to finance the 2016/2017 national budget. Besigye says the majority Ugandans can’t afford to spend on commodities that result in revenues for government, arguing that some have already cut their expenditure” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

FDC Not Divided, Insists Gen. Muntu (Youtube-Clip)

“Forum for Democratic Change Party President General Mugisha Muntu has rubbished reports that divisions in strategy to oust president Museveni are splitting Uganda’s leading opposition party. General Muntu explains that he is not opposed to Dr. Besigye’s street activism approach, insisting that the FDC can still claim power with strong and vibrant grassroot structures. Remmy Bahati talked to FDC’s party boss” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

Opinion: NRM Fiction continues as Kizza Besigye’s “Treason Trial” at Nakawa Court pending until mid-September!

Nakawa 12.08.2016 KB

As the National Resistance Movement regime continues their oppression against the FDC leader Dr. Kizza Besigye; the treason charges against the Opposition leaders after his swearing-in of himself on the 11th May 2016. We are now in mid-August and still the case is not set in stone. If there we’re anything on the charge of Treason they would have time to collect the evidence and affidavits of the witnesses who we’re connected to the conspiracy.

The Nakawa Magistrate Court had yet another session for the case that continues indefinitely as all the cases against piles up so he cannot live an ordinary life or be a proper politician.

What was up today:

“Former Forum for Democratic Change presidential Candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye is this morning (9am) expected to appear before the Nakawa Magistrates Court for mention of treason charges preferred against him. Besigye will appear before court chief magistrate James Eremye Mawanda” (Radiocity 97FM, 12.08.2016)

Defence in court today:

“…my Lord there is no law that says investigations should take 6 months. All the issues they are raising to charge me are all obvious and true.  They say I demanded an audit and it’s true, they say I won elections and yes it’s true. So what are they investigating? Your worship I ask the court to put an end to this “.

“”They said I had asked for an independent Audit, yes I did. They said that I said I had won an election yes I did. The said that I had put in place a cabinet Yes I did”

“So what is making them to take this long to charge me? They can reinstate the case whenever they are ready.  I pray that this case is stopped today.”

What is the end of today in Nakawa:

“Nakawa court has adjourned the hearing of Dr Kizza Besigye treason case to September 12th over pending state investigations” (NBS TV Uganda, 12.08.2016).

KB Nakawa 12.08.2016

So the continuation of the Court dates for Dr. Kizza Besigye and trials proves how much the Government works to silence the Opposition that are questioning the legitimacy of the NRM Regime. Therefore they are continuing to pound on the man. Because they doesn’t have the evidence or the witnesses to the case yet, even if they have continue this prolonged investigation and trial dates.

The NRM and the Ruling Regime is really conning when it comes to this war-games with fellow opposition as this is not the first time Besigye has a Treason charge. By the time now it doesn’t seem to end. The Cases even from Walk to Work protest in Kabale Magistrate Court is prolonged and this 2016. It proof of fiction from the ruling regime and no other probable causes… if so the evidences would already be collected and taken to court.

The reality is that President Museveni and his cronies think they are so wise and genuine, but they are not. They are just playing shadow games with their own destiny and their little reputation as they use the oppositions as Pawns. That is why they all of sudden have the Uganda Federal Alliance in Cabinet of the 10th Parliament, together with the Uganda People’s Congress and one from the Democratic Party. This proves the level of extent for validation the NRM government needs, but doesn’t get from Dr. Kizza Besigye.

With this in mind… with the reality of the fiction that they claim to be reality they pursue their own demise and their own tales of trials against fellow citizens to continue to hold power. Something that proves: how little rule of law and elections matters as they are only hold to continue the prolonged escapism of Musevenism. Peace.

CJ Bart 11.08.2016

CJ Bart Katureebe cares about justice, the man who banned a word from the dictionary? The word of Defiance! I am impressed by his words to the Press yesterday. This came out yesterday.

 

The People’s President produced in Nakawa Court yet again; for his trial date for the ‘treason’ charge against him

Nakawa 29.06.2016 P1

Today another day the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) former Presidential Candidate we’re actually produced in Nakawa Court for his conduct during the Campaign and Post-Election period. Where the State and the Republic of Uganda, acts of treason have occurred, like a wildflower spring in the midst of house-arrest and detained for existing in Uganda and driving in the notorious van to Naggalama Police Station in Mukono.

Nakawa 29.06.2016 P3

The reality of today is that he was in court addressing his own concern and trial of the charge of treason. Not with lawyers or spokesmen for him. As the FDC supporters and many of the leadership we’re not allowed in, as certain of the leadership as before we’re arrested before arriving. Ingrid Turinawe was arrested at Spear Motors as she was addressing the media. As well as Joram Kyenjojo Mwesige and Davis Kamutima also got detained before arriving towards the court today; together the trio we’re all posted today by the Police Force at the Jinja Road Police Station. Another who also was arrested the Spear Motors was the newly elected MP Hon. Geoffrey Ekanya.

Before the trial at the Nakawa Court the Police Commander and the Police Officers went brutally on the media and even beating the camera-men and journalist who was covering the trial as Besigye arrived and came into the area. For instance one of the journalists assaulted by the police we’re Daily Monitor’s Abubakar Lubowa. The Police commander in charge of today’s brutal events we’re Siraj Bakaleke.

Nakawa 29.06.2016 P2

The words of Besigye as the trial stated the effect of being in prison and the way the charges been put, as the favorable for the Police and not for him as a citizen. As he said: “He thought he was innocent until he was proven guilty, but prison authorities are already treating him like he is guilty”. As he also said on his campaign that has been a torn in the government flesh: “The struggle continues. Encourage our people not to lose hope. If I get bail, the defiance campaign will resume immediately”.

As Lord Mayor Lukwago stated later today:

“The State, that has always treated Dr. Besigye as a terrorist, shamelessly reneged on their earlier commitment to wind up their investigations before today’s court sitting. We hope the Magistrate will be assertive on the issue of our brother’s rights when he visits Luzira prisons early next week, as he has undertaken. It’s also our prayer that the High Court will expeditiously dispose off the bail application fixed for 6th July, in case it’s not Eid day” (Erias Lukwago, 29.06.2016).

Nakawa 29.06.2016 P4

 

With this in mind, the Police Force have adjourning the Treason Case for yet another trial date until the 13th July, where the Police and the State will continue where they left off and continue the charade of masquerade of lawfulness in the matter. While Besigye is still lingering as suspect of foul behavior against the republic as the common criminal he is it seems, and not the opposition leader and people’s president. The reality of the matter is that this is stalling until stop caring about the rigged election and wants to move on, just like Gen. Mugisha Muntu spoke of late. The reasoning for the trial is that he hasn’t done anything and the state cannot produce the evidence and create it, it will not fly in court, just as the witnesses in other cases of the recent weeks where the contradictory statements and witnesses together with weak tea from the preceding judges. The truth will come onto the surface and hit the state with a rock. They cannot silence the men of reason and rule of law, against the one-man rule of Mzee. Peace.

Kizza Besigye at Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court 15 June 2016 (Full) – (Youtube-Clip)

Dr. Kizza Besigye appeared before the Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court on 15th June 2016 to hear a ruling on whether the treason case against him would be heard in Luzira Prison Court instead of Nakawa Chief Magistrates as the state had wished. Nakawa Magistrates Court Chief Magistrate James Ereemye Mawanda dismissed the application by the prosecution to have the mention of Kizza Besigye’s treason case transferred to Luzira prison court house.  Chief Magistrate James Ereemye Mawanda also ruled that prosecution’s claims that the former FDC presidential candidate’s security is at risk are hearsay and not supported by any evidence.  The Chief Magistrate said the mention of Besigye’s case should proceed at Nakawa until the Chief Justice decides otherwise. The matter was adjourned to the 29th June and the file in this case has been called by the High court to have Besigye’s right to bail considered. During the proceedings Dr. Kizza Besigye also listed a number of concerns he had about the conduct of his case up to that point and he pleaded with court to heed to his concerns about having a fair and judicious trial” (NTV Uganda, 2016).
