Ahead of the polls: Is the state targeting boxers?

Before the 2016 General Elections there was several of cases of abductions, murders and killings of Muslim Clerics. That happened all through the 2015 and 2016. These cases haven’t been answered and we can wonder if the state was behind these too. As the state cannot implicate the high ranking officials who could order it and the inner-circle who was behind it.

The President and his team seriously knows why these things are happening. Just like the Muslim Clerics was targeted before the previous election. It seems this time around the boxers are the new issue. As they are disappearing and dying. The biggest one for the moment is “Zebra”. However there are more.

Joseph Lubega aka “Joey Vegas Lubega” is now feared dead after gone missing. This case is similar to the murder case of Isaac Senyange aka “Zebra”, which the President profoundly addressed in his New Years Message to the nation. Therefore, there is a campaign against boxers in the nation right now.

This after weeks of a disappearance of boxer Justine Juuko aka “The Destroyer”, as he was detained incommunicado and without a trace. The man wasn’t killed, but was gone for over 14 days before he returned back to the public.

Also before the 2020 was over. There was a report that boxer Robert Mukasa was found dead too. Therefore, the state is targeting them. When it is 4 boxers gone after this last few days. This all happened during December 2020. All of them suddenly missing and killed as well.

If the state want to speak about “securing your future” is it worth it? When lives is this cheap and this is people who have excelled in their field. The state can take these one out like a fish in a barrel. This is extra judicial killings and systematic going after boxers. Just like they went after Muslim Clerics. These cases was never fully investigated and resolved. The same will happen to these boxers. That is the sad state of affairs.

This is the Second Round K.O. of the state. They are out-boxing themselves and it is so vicious. That citizens can be abducted, murdered and “white-washed” by the state. Who empty promises of investigations that will go nowhere. As we know these will go cold, as nobody will really implicate the killers who most likely did it on orders from “high above”.

It is tragic. We are starting another year with a Modus Operandi of state sponsored murders. That is sad, but the reality we are living in. Peace.

Opinion: Zebra’s murder was an act of extra judicial killing!

When I heard of the unfortunate death of Isaac Ssenyange alias Mando Zebra, Uganda’s boxer and former captain of the Bombers. I telephoned his wife who narrated to me the events in detail. Zebra was an NRM supporter, & was mobilising for us so well. He was also training many youth in the ghetto & giving them hope in their search for meaningful life. Indeed, Zebra was meant to come and see me when he was killed. Zebra’s wife told me people in police uniform came to pick Zebra but he jumped over the wall and could have met another group who shot him first, I thought they were thugs disguising in uniform, but as I investigated, I found out that he was killed by security personnel. This is sad and devastating and I am very sorry about this. I will keep on this case and will bring every finding to the knowledge of Isaac Ssenyange’s family and the murderers will be dealt with accordingly. I am so sorry” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (31.12.2020)

Today in his New Years Message to the Nation, the President, His Excellency and Commander in Chief in explicit detail told that his security operatives have no issues to be the judge and the hangman. They can both seal someone’s charges on the spot and take their lives. That is how much value a persons life has.

That someone like Isaac Ssenyange aka Zebra can be taken that easily and cheaply says it all. This is a sign that lives are worthless and can be sold for a chapati. There is no value or concern. The order to take a life is without consequence and can be fixed. Heads and skulls can be broken, the heartbeat can be stopped and the person be silent forever. That is the memo from this New Years Message.

That the President and the Law Enforcement. That the ones who are supposed to save lives and be there to keep them secure. Have no issues to be the fatal force and end people’s lives. They can be judge and the hangman. They can in the blink of an eye take a life and serve no punishment for it. That’s because the authorities and the state allows it to happen.

This is extra judicial killing. A murder in broad daylight sanctioned by the state towards a citizen without a trail, without a court and without charges. A blunt attack on the persons rights and freedom to live. No decency and just death.

This is the state that the President is proud of delivering to his citizens. First kill the and later “investigate” as the case goes cold and nobody will ever know what happens. Secondly another similar affair happens and he promises to “investigate” and that case goes cold too. That is how he runs things. It is a reason why so many cases is never solved and the killers never are caught.

These men was ordered from “high above” or the inner-circle to do their bidding. As they needed to get rid of someone. This time it was Zebra. That says it all and it was all in the sphere of the Presidency. As the man was supposed to met the President too. Just like other high ranking officials killed before meeting him. This follows a tragic pattern.

If you don’t know. Now you know. This was an extra judicial killing and the state will never solve it. It will be a cold case until a new regime gets in power. Until then, this and so many other similar cases will be indefinitely unsolved until eternity. Peace.
