Opinion: IGP Kayihura court case adjourned as the State suffers to produce key witnesses; also the violent demonstrations against petitioners show the impunity!

Makindye Court 09082016

“If someone files a case against you that you believe to be foolish & lacking in merit, don’t get a mob. Get a lawyer. They know what to do” – David F.K. Mpanga

The Police Brutality case at Makindye Court today where weak and flawed as the IGP Kale Kayihura have for two days now let the people in his honour be able to demonstrate against his courtship. Unprecedented in the Uganda we know today where the Police crackdown on any dissidents and any reactions of the citizens. So the ironic part is that it is a just cause to celebrate and demonstrate for justice for the Police Officers, which brutality attacks innocent civilians. But if the civilians and citizens demonstrate for another cause that isn’t for the state than the Public Order Management Act (POMA) comes to effect immediately.

“Pro-Kayihura placard-carrying protesters inside Makindye court where police boss is expected. Nicholas Opiyo, a lawyer who has been at the court since 6:00AM says the group was transported to the court and “deployed” by the Kabalagala DPC” (NBS TV Uganda, 09.08.2016).

Therefore the case in Makindye Court, we’re profound and important for the Citizens versus the Police. Because the Police is there for the Citizens and not for the Police itself or the ruling regime; the Police might act as an prolonged arm for the ruling regime, but in theory they should represent and secure the safety of all citizens not only the Executive and his NRM Elite.

Makindye court has allowed Director of Public Prosecution to formally file application for consideration to join case as court adjourns to 29th August. IGP Kayihura and seven other officers have failed to appear in court” (NBS TV Uganda, 09.08.2016).

Makindye Court 09082016 P2

So as we speak and nobility of men is supposed to be profound, but that is dimming and getting grounded at Makindye Court as the Police Officers charged never got summoned and the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Edward Kale Kayihura never turned up. As the importance of the matter wasn’t there; he and the Police Officers knew it was fraudulent as all the political cases against opposition in courts this year. Therefore the validity of showing up to it was pointless. The result of it and the determined subject doesn’t need take a stand for the questionable behavior of the Police.

There the Mayor of Kampala who appeared in Court wrote this:

“I can’t believe what am witnessing at Makindye court; total breakdown of rule of law. Now confined in the Magistrate’s chambers as the situation in court’s premises is fluid” (Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, 09.08.2016).

Lukwago 09.08.2016

The irony about the demonstrators they we’re all shipped in and didn’t become more. As the Police Officers have let them in peace; there is also evidence of that one guy have written the placards with the same handwriting in 5 languages. As the supporters of the Police are hired men who demonstrates; therefore the hired demonstrations are okay in Uganda, but public dismay is cracked down with force from the Police Force. Therefore the Court and Case in the Courtroom today even it if has released or given any indication of justice today.

As the Police gave the Police Supporters leeway that they even went into vandalism and not only threw water on Lawyer Abdalla Kiwanuka, but also went into destroy the lawyers car on the outside of the Court.

The men like Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and others who went to be witness in the case against the Police have been left behind and under Court Arrest by the same Police Force that we’re in question for their behavior. Also with his is Kawempe Local Councilor Muhammed Ssegirinya who presided with the friends of Lukwago.

“Barricaded in the Chambers of the Chief Magistrates Court of Makindye. Rowdy protesters want to beat up lawyers representing complainants” (Nicholas Opiyo, 09.08.2016).

Reported also be even getting to the Court, there we’re not rumors but in the press that a set of witnesses had backed out of affidavits and their testimonies as the men didn’t show up or wanted to. Because the reports saying some men or woman where paid by the Police to be silenced, if so that is worrying and signs that the Police doesn’t care to what extent they follow orders for the Executive in the republic.

“3 of the 5 witnesses pulled out saying they were bribed to testify” (Nduhukire NTV, 09.08.2016).

Instead of showing up for his court case IGP Kale Kayihura continued with his ordinary work and we’re meeting with foreign dignitaries as the Algerian Police delegation at the Central Police Headquarters in Kampala, as that is more important that actually answering for his misgivings and the brutality from under his leadership. Just like he didn’t care to show up for the Parliamentary Committee recently to answer their either. If you ever wonder if the man thinks he is above the law, the reality is that he thinks he sets the law and justifies it by being the General and Police Commander.

Because of the created havoc on the outside of Makindye Court Lord Mayor Lukwago had to be evacuated by the Police Officers through the Police created protest. The same lawyer of Chapter4Uganda Nicholas Opiyo was saying to the Police it wasn’t safe to leave the premises for him as the demonstrators are in lynching mode.

How Lukwago left the Court:

“VIDEO: Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has safely left Makindye court under heavy police protection from pro-Kayihura protesters ‪#‎KayihuraInCourt‬ HT/@micoh” (NBS TV Uganda, 09.08.2016)

So let it be known to what extent the IGP Kayihura and the NRM goes to silence the ones questioning them. This happens as the mob of demonstrators are now going against the petitioners who questioning the brutality of the Police towards demonstrators and civilians who pass by Opposition Politicians.  The men demonstrating for Kayihura can throw stones and act as vigilantes without any cost, but if somebody else did for a cause against the ruling regime they would been taken to prison, to court or being beaten senseless in the streets.

This is just not justice for none, not for the citizens and not for the Police. The questions remain if the demonstrators we’re doing for somebody else if they would have done while being guarded by the Police officers themselves. The Justice and rules of law are a charade at this point. The legality and the means of laws to regulate and set the standard for civilian liberty is doubting when the demonstrators works without any sanctions. They we’re shipped by the Police early in the morning and harassing the petitioners after the Court where adjourned. This proves the mentality of the rules and fairness in the Republic. Something the IGP and President Museveni must be so proud of. Peace.  

Déjà Vu’: The Kampala Metropolitan Police doesn’t have common sense when it comes to Besigye!

Besigye 25.07.2016 P2

It’s is a déjà vu’ for Dr. Kizza Besigye today as he must have felt it, yet again entering Makindye Court to answer yet another case in-front of another judge; The Judge must really like Posho, because the charge was soft and gooey. Even ACP Polly Namaye claimed the infamous law Public Order Management Act on the detaining and stopping Besigye from attending the Tuesday Prayer at Najjankumbi Headquarters in Kampala on the 4th April 2016.

As the Police at that time called it a planned procession through Metropolitan Kampala as he was driving from Kasangati through the town. That day he was planning to cross Mulago toward the Central Kampala, but as Police Commanders under orders of Kampala Metropolitan Commander Andrew Felix Kaweesi. Then his car was whisked away as he was taken to Old Kiira Road Police Station. This was as he had disobeyed Police Orders at a Roundabout towards Kalerwe not far from Mulago. So the Police had already decided to detain him!

Besigye Jinja Road 25.07.2016

Now today he entered the Makindye Court together with Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago at his side, to address the court of the unlawful behavior and disobeying police orders in April 2016. Apparently the earlier trial dates are showing that the Government defense of the case was manufactured and wasn’t clear. As the State-Witness on the 22nd May when addressing the court was even contradicting himself and wasn’t really saying anything considerate about the case. For instance at one second he was a higher level officer in the Army before becoming Police, later he countered that statement with saying he never we’re in the Army. If that is the truth than he had a hard time becoming an officer in the army, when he never was there! Therefore the evidence of the crime we’re properly dismissed at Makindye on the 25th July 2016. This proves that the Police Force and Government have wasted lots of time creating issues instead of actually governing.

So the continued aggression from the state came quickly as the word of the dismissal and public walked and greeted Besigye in the Central of Kampala. This was not accepted by the government and Police. The Police still under Andrew Felix Kaweesi, had to silence the brief greeting the public. As the “procession” made-up by random people and supporters shows the popularity of the FDC leader.

Therefore today’s activity from the Metropolitan Police must feel back to the normal as he quickly from leaving the Makindye Court we’re taken to Jinja Road Police Station; while he car we’re towed away from the place in town he we’re picked-up by the Police. So the reality is that the Police is creating a problem; instead of erasing problems. They claimed his car was shoddy and a DMC or a Defect Automobile (Dangerous Mechanical Condition). So the White Toyota Land Cruiser been the criminal passing town and apparently the driver or driven by Besigye. So they couldn’t charge him with procession, I am sure the Police Officer wasn’t sure how to write that; as the Police Officers have written that wrong before.

Besigye 25.07.2016 Jinja Road

At the Jinja Road Police Station the detained politician and arch-nemesis of Museveni, Besigye we’re spending time with loyal allies in Lord Mayor Lukwago, Wafula Oguttu, Hon Amuriat, Hon. Geoffrey Ekanya and Ingrid Turinawe. As he we’re also collecting his statement on disobeying police orders, while his car we’re lucky to be claimed to be a DMC, while the footage on NBS and NTV of the matter shows the “damage” is fiction from the Police Officers to find reasons to detain him again and create new possible trial dates to stop him from attending and questioning the rule of law in the Nation.

So the phony and laughable perfect IGP Kayihura has yet another question about the man so-called fighting him. As he under his leadership tormenting Besigye another day at one of his Police Stations in the Central Uganda; one of the Police Stations Besigye knows well. Surely one of the places he should have wall where he could use chalk to imprint how many times he has been detained there. So IGP Kayihura must be proud of Commander Kaweesi for yet another time finding a solution to silence Besigye, with the charge of DMC. The car that the Police have broken before in 2016 to tear-gas the ones sitting in the car! Did you forget that, yes you did; and at one point Kayihura even promised a new car to Besigye, like that would happen?

Besigye 25.07.2016

Well, let’s be clear, this a phony charge, in the levels of impunity of the Calvary, the Kifeesi Police who has respect and want’s to silence the opposition with the detention of vocal opposition and men of defiance against the status quo of those who are dropping funds after NRM Cronies in scam-bailouts. That is the ones that are detained today and the conflict of justice for all is not there; it is only justice for elite and the men kissing Mzee’s ring. The rest can end-up behind bars, beaten by the police or shedding tears after shooting at the public with teargas.

This will continue as the NRM-Regime cannot help them, they are on sail-boat at the middle of sea, far from land without any wind and trying to find oars to row into land; but they are hidden behind deck and the Mzee doesn’t seem to know because his vision doesn’t say so. Therefore the men who are lost at sea are waiting for accurate statement and direction to the oars while the problem of no wind let them left at sea instead of getting into shade at the harbor. Peace.

Makindye Court denied bail for the FDC activists that we’re detained yesterday

FDC 04.05.2016

As of the actions yesterday by the Uganda Police Force that detained the men and woman who tried to attend the FDC Tuesday Prayers at FDC Headquarters at Najjankumbi have not gotten bail by the authorities (that is what is rumored to be the end-game). They are now kept in jail and detained as result of the actions of the Police who took them away on the spot.

Makindye Court 04.05.2016

The Activist have taken to Makindye Courts with the likes of Dr. Stella Nyanzi who also tried to attend the prayers without getting there before taking by the Police yesterday. So she and other activist are taken by Force after a day in being detained to court. As the men and woman surely will again be jailed as the Court has denied them bail. Though the certainty of their violation of law is not yet appeared. Other than them was involved in trying to defy the Interim order of 29th April 2016. At the Courts Pastor Sandra K. Ngabo and the kids, was not allowed to attend or allowed to enter the session in court.

So the Police Force and the authorities is busy making common men and woman into criminals instead of actually taking criminals who actually does crime. Peace.
