Some Campaign updates from the NRM and Go-Forward today; Fake FDC Membership cards; Tear-gas before NRM rally; Deflections from Amama; and more!

Museveni Mbabazi

I will not write about all the things that actually happen on the campaign rallies, that has been going on for so long. So the rallies in general are not important for me. What the parties does on the outside of that is the important, since it is local pledges and local MPs who surface the campaign rallies. But the big thing in the late part before the polls gets it more interesting. As they will now take stands and make difference as we see how Sam Kuteesa does right now. Will also go into the actions of Amama Mbabazi and his Go-Forward Group! Take a look!

Sam Kutesa

Yesterday before the NRM was to hold a campaign rally in Sembabule. Sam Kuteesa had gotten 540 printed FDC membership cards with aim to show them to President Museveni. As a way of telling a story that 540 FDC members had deflected to NRM.

Before the rallies the NRM has been busy with ferrying people to the venue at Sembabule as they are busy with their second trade Voter Tourism, the new future of steady progress under the NRM! Take a look at today’s photos:

Also before the rallies there been issues between the Police and the NRM Campaign Convoy. The Supporters of Ssekikubo and Patrick Nkalubo that was supposed to have a rally before the President; that did not happen as the police shot tear-gas and dispersed the supports of the fellow candidates.

Sam Kutesa who was busy yesterday getting and producing fake FDC Membership-Cards have been accused for delivering around money and NRM T-Shirts to Nkalubo while the public was trying to get away from the tear-gas.

Ssekikubo said in a rally today before President Museveni spoke said:

“Ugandans are tired of tear-gas and bullets”.  

AmamaNRMElection2016

Now we are going into the Go-Forward Group:

Low Turn-up:

“Supporters of independent presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi are accusing the Go-Forward mobilisers in Tooro region for the poor turn up at his campaign rallies” (…)”At some of the venues especially in Kabarole district, Mbabazi and his team didn’t find people to address, forcing him to wait for more than twenty minutes. His supporters are accusing the mobilisers of the Go Forward team for incompetence, which they say will cost their candidate votes in the general election” (Sanyu Radio, 31.01.2016).

A big hunch of Amama Security team deflects to NRM:

“A group of 68 members of the security team for former Prime Minister and Go Forward Presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi has denounced him and joined President Yoweri Museveni’s campaign team” (…)

”George Sebyala their leader said this: “From today onward, we have parted ways with Mr. Mbabazi to join President Museveni’s camp after realizing we were not achieving what was promised to us while joining the Go Forward camp” (…)”We have realized he is not the right person to lead this country, considering the problems that befell us after the Ntungamo incident .With the huge sums of money and wealth he has amassed, we were not well catered for by Mr. Mbabazi” (…)On the Ntungamo clashes: “The people we beat were brothers and sisters to us and we ask for forgiveness. We were only misled but we pledge not to repeat such inhuman acts to our fellow Ugandans”.

Abandon Frank Tumbewaze for Amama 01.02.2016 Bukwo

As it comes to the rallies today, the locals got bored of listening to NRM Frank Tumbewaze so they left the venue and walked to the nearby Amama Mbabazi rally. That proves that the trusted minister of Mzee doesn’t have the pull as he think he has, as the people just leave him high and dry. As they did today!

I think that is enough. Peace.

Recharging the Security Agencies in Uganda and other breif statements since the Nominations Days

Follow up of some political changes since the Nominations Day’s in Uganda

There been actions and quotes after the start of elections-season in Uganda. The campaigning will not start officially before Monday 9th of November and end 18th February 2016. Still there already campaigning and movement from all parties involved. Even the ones paid to secure the elections and the ruling party. The last report I have to is a continuation of the fear-mongering the President Museveni does. It’s his trademark now. Just like Nike – Just do it! For Museveni it’s if you don’t get me to keep the throne then the guns shall arrive and you will regret trying to get rid of me!

Bary for President

 

Prof. Venansius Baryamureeba, PhD and Presidential Candidate – Statement 5th November:

“I was not disappointed by the comments made by President Museveni when he asserted that I am a young boy who failed to manage Makerere University and that he doubted my capacity to manage this country. It only affirmed my impression of him as a person who is of advanced age and has no more capacity to keep tabs of what is going on and has no idea what is happening on the ground in Uganda” (…)”Of course I know that President Museveni has grown very intolerant of anybody who threatens his hold onto power. It is the reason that he has gone an extra mile to forget the above as seen in his attacks over my personality” (…)”To avoid going back and forth on this discussion, I would like to offer myself for a public political debate with H.E President Yoweri Museveni as we ponder on issues that affect Ugandans and not each other’s ages. It is in such debates that we can be able to engage in mature politics”.

Joseph-Mabirizi

Joseph Mabirizi, Presidential Candidate of The Independent Coalition said this in his speech 4th November:

“I thank those thousands of Ugandans countrywide who signed our nomination forms, without expecting anything in return. This showed us that in Uganda, despite the culture that the 30 year old regime has attempted to impose on Ugandans – that votes are for sale – has not quite taken root. We are confident that this spirit will continue during the election period and beyond. We appeal to all Ugandans to reject voter bribery in all its forms, now and in the future” (…)”I have walked on foot when I had no transport fare. I have struggled to make ends meet. My relatives live in the villages, some work in markets, in garages, others are drivers- name it. Many of my young relatives are un-employed yet educated. I am just a hard working person who believes that with courage and determination, everything is possible. And I will be president of Uganda. With your support” (…)”To all citizens, the time for real change is now. We hear people talk about change” (…)”They have failed the young people. They have failed the women. They have failed the persons with different abilities- they have instead exploited them, manipulated them, given them empty promises and misdirected the nation. We pledge to return Uganda to its rightful path. Change can only come with new people, with new thinking. New attitudes. Don’t be deceived. No one can be able to make any meaningful contribution to governance after 30 years in power, whether as president or in any other capacity”.

Statement on Yesterday’s FDC Nomination Rally:

You made a loud and clear statement yesterday!

Thank you the people of Kampala, thank you the people of Wakiso, thank you the people of Buganda, Northern, Eastern and Western Uganda. Thank you for loving FDC and our charismatic leader Dr. Col. Kizza Besigye – flag bearer.

The journey to bring change has just started, we can not however accomplish this task alone as FDC and or opposition, we equally need everyone including but those in NRM who are pro change. By this we call upon all peace and democracy loving people iregardless of their political affiliation to join hands with FDC to bring about the desired change.

Let us exhibit maturity, respect and tolerance even with those with contrary views. Lets convince one to convince another.

Together We Can and each one of us matters.

One Uganda One People,

Rajab Kaaya Sema

FDC National Vice Chairman Buganda

POLOGY TO MY FDC COLLEAGUES

Yesterday I called the Kizza Besigye nomination event organizers Semujju Nganda and Kikonyogo John N to confirm my attendance at the nomination rally at Nakivubo.

There is no way I could not be with my FDC colleagues on this day. I had really wanted to put the record straight,- that not all JEEMA leaders put their weight being Rt. Hon. Amama Mbabazi (Go-Forward) as is alleged. Those JEEMA officials who have declared support to JPAM did so as individuals, which is their absolute right, especially since JEEMA did not find it strategic to field a presidential candidate in 2016. As some of you know, business to do with “flag bearer” is disposed of only at the JEEMA National Delegates Conference. This was not done.

Unfortunately, I failed to make it as I could not navigate through the jam, for, at 2.38pm I was also nominating a new kid on the block fronted by The Independent Coalition, TIC. His name is Joseph Mabirizi, Engineer, 40. It took us another two and a half hours to return to Kampala.

My reasons for participating in introducing this new face in Uganda’s politics in 2016, whose real political future lies certainly beyond 2016, is ideological. A new generation should be assisted to put its foot forward now, so that they can book their place in the future, at the highest table.

My personal support for FDC’s Kizza Besigye is rooted in a rich history of trust, respect and common danger that we have faced as change agents at the hands of those whom we know very well. I also know that many other JEEMA members and leaders do support FDC’s KB for 2016. God willing, I will find time at another FDC’s KB public event to repeat these words – and perhaps more, to a wider audience. This is my promise.

Besigye Buganda Kingdom

Saturday 7th November – Baganda Kingdom:

“Crowd goes wild as Kattikiro, Charles Peter Mayiga introduces Kizza Besigye to Ssaabasajja Kabaka of Buganda Kingdom at the youth day celebrations in Kasangati, Kyadondo” – Reports say today!

AmamaNRMElection2016

What A Pro-Museveni has been spreading online:

“Amama seeking for sympathy:

Hey statesmen and women of the great nation Uganda.

In my last article I clearly showed you how Amama uses media to claim to be a billionaire yet he has money just enough for his family.

Yesterday we learnt that Amama Mbabazi was trying to seek sympathies from the public as his team claimed that he couldn’t access his account to facilitate campaigns and yet calling for support by donating via mobile money.

Amama got this from Kizza Besigye but for the money he got from Gay activist and then Temangalo Scandal.

Ugandans are wise Amama is not going to fool us.

Vote wisely

Don’t vote for vulnerable thieves

CHAIRMAN MUSEVENISTS COMMUNITY.

Reports from the Go-Forward Group this Saturday 7th November:

“A MAJOR REBELLION and SPLIT has finally broken out in THE GO FOWARD camp with seven chief mobilisers on the run having swindled 10BN CASH meant for strategic mobilisation! Thousands of GO FOWARD loyalists continue to storm plot 28 nakasero and vow to crush the chief robbers! In a sphere of national confluence we do urge all political practioners to exercise moral prudence, when managing the financial infrastructure of their organisations! And to you chief professional robbers in the GO FOWARD CAMP, please be reminded that your chronic culture of stealing money was well inherited right from the time when you served in the MIGHTY NRM GOVERMENT, a matter worth no indelible suprise! thank you” (Reports say).

Some more aftermath reports from the NRM Primaries:

“Junior minister for Lands Idah Nantaba has been flown to Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi for specialized treatment after police subdued her with pepper spray following a confrontation at Kayunga Police Station in the chaotic NRM primaries”.

Crime Preventers from Up-Country demonstrate:

“80 crime preventors, along with their counterparts from Nwoya and Amuru, are protesting for allegedly having hoodwinked to join the M7 nomination rally on 3rd November. They were ferried from their training grounds with hopes of being passed out, ending up in Kololo!” (Reports from Gulu say’s so today!).

IGP Kale Kayihura Quote

On 5th November the UPF released this information:

“Minister of state for Internal affairs, Honorable James Boliba Baba has today launched twenty seven (27) regional Joint security Operation Centers with the aim of further enhancing crime reduction & management at a regional level. These centers will work hand in hand with the security teams within the districts. The regional centers will also work very closely with the Joint Operations Command center at the national level. The function took place at police headquarters & was attended by representatives from UPDF,UPF, UPS, ESO,ISO, DPP. All regional Police commanders were in attendance. The launch was also attended by Mr Stephen Kagoda, the P.S Ministry of Internal affairs”.

MuseveniNRM2016Election

President Museveni continues with his fear campaign:

“Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has warned Ugandans to prepare for a war if they don’t vote him as president comes 18th February 2016. The president was addressing the nation at statehouse Entebbe and he clearly stated that Ugandans must vote him or prepare for a war (AfroReports, 2015).

Hey! What do you think, wasn’t that all enlightening and giving you a feeling for what is happening and the results of what is going on. There are massive moments and the camps are preparing their campaigns and everything. They way of addressing and deflections, not to mention the state giving police more fancy equipment right now before the elections and also starting joint operations between the security agencies while the President Museveni have to reassure the people what will happen if they don’t vote for him! Something is smells fishy! While the Harmonization of campaigns have been done the Electoral Commission and the days are scheduled and the document is able to get for free on Scribd. For those who are interested. In this days the manifestoes can also be read. But trust me; it is more interesting to see the movement on the ground then empty promises. Peace!
