10th Parliament MPs is extra greedy as they are eating another Shs. 100m. each!

You know there is something special, you know there is something out of bound and something compelling, when the Members of Parliament (MPs) who has no quarrels with eating without taxation, without thinking of their salaries compered to the ones who they represent. The constituency of the MP must feel betrayed as their allowances and their benefits are enormous, to say it at least, they are gigantic! But take a look at the latest big payment for the MPs!

Parliament — MPs are smiling all the way to the bank after the government authorised the release of an extra Shs45b to Parliament, with each of the 449 lawmakers set to get an additional Shs100m, ostensibly to buy cars for constituency travels” (…) “In a June 13 letter titled: ‘Additional cash limit of Shs45.8b for the Parliamentary Commission’, Mr Keith Muhakanizi, the Secretary to the Treasury, authorised Ms Jane Kibirige, the Clerk to Parliament, to spend the cash as part of non-wage recurrent budget in the fourth quarter of the Financial Year 2016/2017. The clearance comes barely two weeks to the end of the Financial Year” (Arinaitwe & Manzil, 2017).

So the Members of Parliament are clearly getting another pay-day without passing to much legislation or any sort of consideration of the proposed budget or pledges they had for the financial year 2017/2018. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and the NRM Caucus have clearly made together with the Parliamentary Commission to make a new pay-day for the MPs, yet again!

The National Resistance Movement and their MPs clearly like to get extra brown-envelopes without any considerations of the state of the budget or the way the funds are raised. It is not shocking, it seems like an ordinary event at this point. Not like it is the first time, the MPs uses their Noble place in the august house to enrich themselves and add cost to the state. Therefore, the added debt and interest payments should be feared by the MPs. Instead, they are adding debt and creating more interest without concern of the citizens.

The citizens are going to pay extra for this, they are the ones that are ripped off at broad-daylight. They are eating directly of the state reserve and does it with impunity. Also worth noticing, President Museveni is not sanctioning against it, since he can do as pleases. Since he is eating directly and misuse s it whenever he wants. Peace.

My letter to the 10th Parliament on their reckless behaviour!

10th-parliament-sep-2016-p2

Dear Members of Parliament!

I know by now that you doesn’t’ care much about the National Economy or about Transparency as you excluded yourself from the citizens you represented when you gave yourself a giant tax-break with no-income tax. That is the way you are I guess, reckless misbehaving children who are creating havoc in the candy store pointing at all the different kinds of treats and wants them all, even if it make them sick of sugar; they still want it all!

You guys, ladies and gentleman, the so called nobles, the so-called honourable citizens of the Republic have no totally forgotten your place and your reason for co-existing in the Republic. You might think that your above the people, the citizens, the one that you represent exist because of. Even if you think you exists and breathes eats and have pleasure because of President Yoweri Museveni, let’s be clear he is just using you!

I am not mad that you want to have air-conditioner in the North or the Eastern Building of the Parliament, it’s hot and you guys doesn’t want to turn into hot-air or Wokoloso. I know that, you want to peaceful creatures, which doesn’t kill Kasese or support arms for the rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo. You want to keep cool and be great support of the Republic.

I am furious over you wish to grand yourself 4 station wagons for whatever purpose of trading socks at Kololo Airstrip or having secretaries to drive some of you around on your shopping spree at Game or Garden City. That is all up to you and the use of the Station Wagons that you acquire to Parliament. You already have a massive fortune in Car money and doling it out when you started your terms as MPs because your official duty needs that the public offer you luxurious transport. Not take Taxis, Specials or boda-boda’s to Parliament Avenue, which is beneath you. You just like eating the monies of the public who would so!

I understand that the Parliament isn’t built for nor have the facilities for all the MPs now. Since you’re Executive, the chief of Rwakitura and the whole nation has let the nation sore with districts and parishes since his dire beginning of power in the 80s. It was nearly any districts when he entered the building as a Defence Minister under Dr. Milton Obote, now it is more than pages in the Kampala Eye and whatnot Tourist Information brochures that are delivered at Entebbe International Airport. Therefore the amount of MPs has soured with the amount of districts; a cow hasn’t been butchered as many ways the districts in Uganda has been during the last decades under Museveni.

So that the MPs needs office space and rebuild their accommodations is responsible acts of the Parliament, though costly because the share amount of MPs created under the President all of his terms. The MPs are in this one reacting with sense, but they should question the need for all of their services, even if it means giving up their wealthy new acquired lifestyle in the Capital.

What makes doesn’t make sense to me, in a nation where the state doesn’t have enough funds to allocate for the Presidential Jet or Helicopter of the farmer of Rwakitura. So when the current reflection of that in mind, the 10th Parliament are allocating funds and finding ways of giving Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah. Because these noble creatures and honourable minds needs to take into air and land wherever. Since their roles in Parliament is damn important that they need to follow the Presidential Jet and Helicopter that the State House cannot allocate enough funds too. So they can all stand still at the Helicopter Landing-sites in Kampala. At the Merry for the Kadaga and Oulanyah who dearly need them for their service of the country. They need to be mosquitos who can travel in the air and suck funds out the taxpayers coffers like the mosquito suck blood of their pray. If the Speaker and Deputy Speaker are lucky they will give the nation malaria as of the purchase and maintenance so the inflation keeps rising and the dwindling economy needs more debt to feed the fiscal imbalance of the state budget. The same state budget the Parliament allocated funds to their helicopters. Their needed helicopter that they will silence the MPs and show their way in Parliament; the Parliament will controlled by the waving wings of silence and the blood sucking drones the Speakers have become.

If you don’t understand the spending is of the chain, when the Mulago Hospital still lacks needed equipment, when other state institutions is depleted and civil servants not getting salaries. At that moment of time… the Speakers doesn’t need more perks, they need to be fiscal responsible and show the Executive just ways, since he is not caring about the Bank of Uganda’s hard work to stagger Inflation and the running debt rate. So when they are using public funds as their playground, these runs rapid wild in spending to be sure they can play all the cool games and be spoiled kids. That is what the Parliament and MPs are right now. Time to stop, rehash ideas and think of accountability, transparency and being fiscal responsible! Peace.

Misappropriate funds instead of feeding the hungry in the districts; 10th Parliament greedy MPs only see their bellies and not that they represent the ones that are starving!

kayonza-parish-isingiro-5-nov-2016

Something is just wrong, something is seriously wrong, as the misappropriated funds and public coffers in Uganda; there is something sinister going on. It is okay that a government and administration cannot make it rain or make sun shine, but they can make sure the people together with public gathering technics make sure when there is plenty of water. It’s in tanks and other barrels until needed for the crops and enough for drinking. This is practices mankind has done since the Roman Empire. It’s not spectacular, but convenient.

On the other hand, since Roman Time, there has always been corruption, and men has always been corrupted by gold, silver and sparkly things. So as the citizens are hungry, the starvation isn’t only in Isingiro, where the starvation is dangerously high, there are other districts severely hit by the draught and the lack of rain.

Hunger in the districts:

Already, 1.3 million Ugandans, the minister said, need urgent food aid and so far, 600kgs of maize flour and 300 kilogrames of beans have been sent to Isingiro Districts where some people have starved to death” (…) “According to Mr Kibazanga, 65 per cent of people in Karamoja sub region have one meal or half a meal in a day as opposed to three meals while 35 per cent of the population in the districts of Katakwi, Amuria, Kumi, Bukedea, parts of Serere and Kaberamaido are in the same phase with Karamoja sub-region” (…) “Mr Kibazanga also revealed that 50 per cent of the people of Koboko, Yumbe, Moyo, Maracha, Arua, Zombo, Nebbi, Adjumani, Amuru, Nyoya, Gulu, Pader, Lamwo, Kitgum, Agago, Soroti, Ngora, Amolatar, Pallisa, Butaleja, Rakai, Isingiro and Tororo have access to a meal a day. The districts of Oyam, Apac, Kiryandongo, Masindi, Bulisa, Kyankwanzi, Nakaseke, Kiboga, Mubende, Luwero, Kyegegwa, Sembabule, Kiruhura, Lwengo, Ntugamo, Kamuli and Kibuuku are in a minimal phase of food insecurity, meaning the people can still afford all meals though stocks are running low” (Tajuba, 2016).

So when the Government knows about that and they continue with their inappropriate idea of giving new cars for the Members of Parliament, something that the 10th Parliament MPs have been waiting for. It is in their duty and now getting a free-ride for their services; this they do while districts upon districts lack food and water, while they are starving… the reckless thieving of state coffers instead of supplying needed food from the budgets !

april-cars Uganda

New Cars for the MPs:

“Parliament has received a release of Shs25 billion for payment of vehicle grant to members of parliament. The money will cater for at least 250 MPs out of 431. According to parliament’s director of communcations Chris Obore, the Parliamentary Commission will first pay new MPs. The new MPs to get first are those without election petitions in court. The old MPs will be paid when the Commission gets a new release. It emerged recently that each Member of Parliament will bag Shs200m instead of Shs150m as had earlier been budgeted by the Parliamentary Commission. This means Parliament will spend more than Shs85 billion on all the legislators” (the Insider, 2016).

As much as there are money in the system for unnecessary expenditure from the 10th Parliament, that with no thought or consideration thinks about the consequences for the once they are supposed to represent. They apparently wish to become greedy like the former EX-MPs who we’re taken to court and charged with massive thieving, though where the money really went nobody knows. They surely pocketed some of it, but the where it we’re supposed to go, is not hard to know. Because the pay-outs we’re to ghosts, ghosts are invisible creatures not of the living.

Pension Scam:

“Anti Corruption Court in Kampala has found three former top employees of ministry of public service including Jimmy Lwamafa, the ex-permanent secretary guilty of all the ten charges slapped against them by the state.  Presiding judge, Lawrence Gidudu summarised in his ruling that the fraud to steal the Shs88.2 billion was hatched in the public service, smoothened in finance ministry and executed in Cairo bank where the money was finally paid out to ghost pensioners” (Ndagire & Wesaka, 2016).

So the living in the districts are either this days getting screwed by their own representatives of the 10th Parliament, as they are more keen on perks and riches than helping the citizens they represent, that is what their President Museveni has been teaching for three decades now. So the people are starving and not getting valuable food or needed water for their daily life, while the MPs are riding in flash, posh cars in Kampala. That is happening while their predecessors are being detained for thieving from coffers to bail-out ghost pensioners, while the results of the matter are not told where the money went.

We can wonder since it is not told, that somebody did their bidding and stole the monies for the bigger plan of their President, and when they we’re not needed to do their service they gotten taken to court. That wouldn’t be surprising as that has happen before in the times udner the Executive Museveni. It’s just new names who done similar things in the past. The billions of shillings are levels of stealing while the hunger is running rapid is worrying; together with the wishes of lavish lifestyle by the men who supposed to represent them. Instead they represent themselves and not using their powers and reach to service the famine ridden districts, because they only see their own tummy. Peace.

On Hon. Nsereko: he is an Imposter of the Yellow, not so “independent” apparently!

nsereko-luuka-09-10-2016

The former National Resistance Movement Member of Parliament in the Buganda Caucus cannot be seen as anything else than a skeleton of political figure after the reason actions by the man. He has been in the 9th Parliament into squabble with his mother-party NRM as he fought against it and even won as NRM Rebel MPs like Hon. Muhammed Nsereko tried to find a new “home”. That ended up sort-of being affiliated with the Forum for Democratic Change as he was running as an “Independent”. Nsereko had to take his rebel case all the way to Uganda’s Supreme Court and won over the State of Uganda there in midst of October 2015. Something that is just a year ago, now!

So after winning a seat in Parliament again, he ran wild on trying to upset the NRM rule of the August House of Parliament with ousting Hon. Jacob Oulanyah, he tried to do what the wifes of Hon. Oulanyah does, without making it apparently because Oulanyah came this time. Hon. Nsereko wanted to be the Deputy Speaker and be the underling of Hon. Rebecca Kadaga.

That was flawed from the get-go as the NRM Machine was working overtime and giving money for new suits and such to bribe the MPs into submission and get the MPs that Mzee trusted to follow the guidelines of his MPs. So Hon. Nsereko who tried with his posing as the Opposition candidate and the man to stand for FDC, DP and UPC to be the man for them to have, as the August House of Parliament deserved his service and his work ethic to keep the Parliament in order. That was something that wasn’t working as the service rendered from the bribed MPs came into order and his candidacy as flawed it could be.

After this and just being an MP and working as normal, even as the wealthy business man, who even these days have proven his wealth. He even showed up on the Independence Celebration of Mzee at Luuka District all smiling with the First Lady Janet Museveni and all of his noble clan of dignitaries. Where they we’re celebrating the independence in the name of greed and glory of the Movement.

So when he did so and when this week started as the man under Buganda Caucus was expecting money the Caucus to silence the Opposition and even trying to persuade the MPs there to go for working for the Ruling Regime. This was happening as an event we’re given directly from the State House 500m shillings. That we’re partly directed by the “Independent” man Hon. Nsereko who had been smiling in Luuka. The proof is right there…

Nsereko 19.05.2016

If you cannot believe it now, it is right there and visible like a the sun is shining. The former NRM Rebel, isn’t really a NRM Rebel as his cash-cow and money hungry soul who owns a parts of Football Club and even apartments’ in Zambia doesn’t’ want to divorce himself from NRM, that is just a play of guards and to look good in public. In reality with all of connections and with the knowledge that you need to know people and grease people to do business; the Hon. Nsereko must use the entire extended network for his personal gain. As he did in the Opposition, something he really wasn’t when you look into it.

So the pictures of his acts, his words against the Defiance and the Jobless Brotherhood another way of seeing that he isn’t really a opposition or wishing to be so. He we’re just there because he rebelled and now he tries to get back into the mother-party and good graces. Therefore smiling with Janet on the Independence Day and acting all sort of giddy while the affiliated with the FDC during the campaigns who he supposed to represented we’re detained, house-arrested and silenced at that moment. Though Nsereko we’re initially running as an “independent” because of his past aggression and misbehaving in Parliament: so this independent candidate isn’t that independent as he now could just become Yellow again if he was honest with himself and his stature; though that is in the mercy of Mzee and his NRM Electoral Commission.

We can now see his true Yellow colours, they are waving as flags in the wind. There are no questions that the rebel isn’t as rebellious as his greed and guts are more important that standards and development. His own personal interests and wealth is more important, just like the monies for cars, expenses and extra engorgements through the Parliament as MP is vastly more peculiar to him than delivering any policy or change that matters for his Buganda Constiuency. Trust me, he will only be a puppet for the NRM machine in this 10th Parliament, that is why he is there, though in fake pretence as a “Independent” because nothing about this man is “independent”. He is currently a stooge under the portfolio of Mzee. Peace!

Prof. Joe O. Onyango calls Mzee an ATM; the same day reports of doling out money to a SACCO and to the Buganda Caucus!

yoweri-museveni-ronald-kibuule

I been saying it too for a while… that the Presient Yoweri Kaguta Museveni spends money where the mouth is. That is for the ones loyal to him and the ones he wants loyal to him. So that hearing a Professor Joe Oloka Onyango from the Makerere University saying the same. Thank you Professor for describing the truth… surely that must not give him peace as he walks home.

Because the National Resistance Movement doesn’t like dissidents and pays to silence critics; President Museveni cannot enjoy being called an ATM, even if it is true. Mzee, gives money to anybody who is loyal or to the Elite. He is taking money from the Bank of Uganda and spending as he pleases and where he see fit without budget or allocations. Therefore we saw straight after the General Election needed addition funding in Trillions upon Trillions.

Here is two stories from one SACCO and the Buganda Caucus, one to pay-off opposition through a fiscal funding and the other to keep loyal MPs in Buganda Caucus.

Mzee gives money to a SACCO:

“The drama was captured during the launch of Muyoka Sacco last week where Mr Museveni handed members Shs100m to mobilise themselves into income generating activities” (…) “NRM members were challenging President Museveni’s action to hand money to people, majority of whom were recently drafted into NRM from the Opposition” (…) “Muyoka Sacco is composed of more than 3,000 members who were recruited by a former DP member Rose Kafeero ahead of the February 18 elections to consolidate NRM’s support in Kampala” (Wandera, 2016).

More Money from Mzee:

“Watchdog has been reliably informed that President Museveni through NRM chief whip Ruth Nankabirwa and Kampala Central MP Mohammed Nsereko, spent sh500 million on the event in order to determine who goes through” (…) “The president paid for the full board accommodation at the hotel. Every participant however received a million shillings in transport reimbursement and Sh100,000 for night entertainment. Ssenyonga, a first term MP, replaced Godfrey Kiwanda who was appointed Tourism state minister. Buganda Caucus is the largest regional caucus in Parliament, and if led well, it can offer a strong voice for regional issues in the House” (Watchdog, 2016).

nsereko-money

Museveni State House is a ATM:

“Prof Joe Oloka Onyango said every crisis in this country is being solved by way of brown envelopes, a scenario he described as being sad and far below the rule of law in the country” (…) “In early 1980s, when this country was under the leadership of Godfrey Binaisa Lukongwa, State House was like a market place. Today, State House has been converted into an ATM,” he said amid cheers” (Wesaka & Adengo, 2016).

Mzee, has been giving away to his men for a long while not caring about budgets and such. Therefore we have heard both Bank of Uganda and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED). Its reasons for the amounts of government debt and inflations that can come from this kind of behaviour and the rising prices on the goods; this is the effect of reckless spending without implemented plans or budgets. Therefore the funds are taken from wherever at amp speed just like an ATM and not with allocated budget or references as where it was supposed to be used. Peace.

Opinion: 10th Parliament MPs proves that their Greed is more important than the Government programs and running expenses!

10th-parliament-sep-2016

This is growing concern not because of the World Bank suspending loans and funds to the development projects or anything else. The ways the allocated funds and tax funds are used in the 10th Parliament shows their level of reckless spending and no concern of accountability.

This happens on the week the Daily Monitor shows reports of 80% of Primary Teachers that teach who can’t read while being government civil servants. These Teachers are the ones learning their inabilities to the future. So the misappropriate funds for the Educational Sector comes into fruition. The Universal Primary Education is surely improperly balanced together with the mismanagement of buildings and salaries; if they get salaries that usually never on time, teachers can wait for months upon months to get their pay. There are enough fallen and depleted schools.

While the Education Sector is in shambles the Members of Parliaments are allocating more money for their private cars. So they can drive around like King-pins in their constituency. They can ride around in the Toyotal Land Cruiser Prado and feel special while their citizens they represent have teachers who can’t read and supposed to teach Vincent grammar. That is just so special ignorance of their duty those 30 years of the Movement should have had enough time to make difference and not make the schooling system weaker.

This is happening in the week that the imported Anti-Retroviral Drugs (ARDs) where National Medical Store (NMS) are distributing medicines, but they are sold more expensively locally than internationally. The Ugandan population are doing the same as Americans who pays an extra fortune for their EpiPen Auto-Injector. Together with the other issues around in the Hospitals like Uganda Cancer Institute and their breakdown of hte Cobalt 60 Teletherapy Machine. That still isn’t fixed and was the only one in the great nation.

While the Health Care and Health Sector are not as functional as it should be. While this is happening the MPs have allocated funds and bought Tablets or Ipad’s for a fortune for themselves. Because these MPs need tablets to write notes and such even if am not sure Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Ruganda or Vice-President Edward Ssekandi can even use one of them. So they spending a on this while medicines are missing or empty at a time or another.

The MPs salaries, the MPs Allowance and the MPs wish to exempt their salaries from Tax. Together with appropriating lots of funds for travelling for days to the United States and Boston for a Seminar; together with the extended funds for burials, this is happening so they can have an extravagant lifestyle into the casket.

This is happening while the government institutions and programs are weak or nearly non-existence. They have surely ghosts like the ghost SACCO Mzee gave to a non-existing organization. While the MPs representing their people are living like royals in the National Assembly with fancy cars and houses while the unemployment levels are still strong and the educations of their kids are made by teachers who can’t even write. This shouldn’t be happening, but apparently it is.

The Governance is not really happening. Because the government are not steering towards any place, they are walking on clouds and not taking steps to change the deteriorating state of education and health care.

10th-parliament-sep-2016-p2

This is happening while the Government are adding more debt and is by end of the year having over UGX 26 Trillion. This is happening while the Roads Development that been borrowed to Uganda National Roads Authority from the World Bank has been suspended. So the worsen economic situation together with lack of funds for fiscal cash proves the weakness of the economy and the national policies.

This is happening also while the Ugandan Government has to tackle more refugees in Adjumani and other districts towards South Sudan as the neighbour continues with internal fighting. This together with the fluid borders into Democratic Republic of Congo. This has been done with armies and guerrillas in the past to get resources something that has led to another expensive debt to DRC for the Ugandan State.

So the mismanagement and maladministration of the Movement that have had the time to fix it has apparently been more sucked into their own rich-elite oblivion instead of serving their people. That is why the MPs are so into fixing themselves up nicely while the other are living in midst of utter poverty. So the debt is rising and inflation is rising. So the value of shilling isn’t worth much while the imports are more needed. NRM Regime is not having a fiscal policy as they are loose with spending without having secured funding. While making grand plans without having the output to secure borrowing…

I am sure there more things that could be discussed, but this is more than enough for today. As the proof is in the pudding; the budget and the inflated expenses of the Parliament shows how little accountability and transparency of their acts are. This is with the knowledge of months after the General Election 2016… the State House we’re broke right after for those that forgotten. Since the State House had used it resources in the Campaign that cost fortunes and after the election they had to get funds to pay the running expenses.

You think the government should be carrying itself better after been ruling for 30 years, but they are not. They are running like lackeys thieving the little pieces they can instead of building. Therefore the MPs are running the mill like the ability is only counted for when they are pocketed. That is why the greed of getting brown-envelopes is coming when the Mzee needs bills to pass. They get both monies and valuable produce to sell after being in the National Assembly. So with this in mind, the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga should silence herself and take care of her people instead of blaming the media… because they account to the people and the MPs should be more careful spending taxpayer’s monies, instead they use the budget for their own sake and not for the citizens who bleed for this. Peace.

My letter to Hon. Nsereko on recent outburst on NBS towards the Jobless Brotherhood!

mpigs-uganda

Dear Muhammad Nsereko, whoever you are affiliated with and assemble with; I write to you today. Because of your words that you uttered on NBS TV Uganda yesterday and needs to be put some reflection on. Your wealth and continued terms in the Parliament makes you blind the reality. First your own words, than my take on you Honoarable!

Hon. Muhammad Nsereko on NBS TV Yesterday:

“This is not new in Parliament. These are young men being given ‘something’. My immediate reaction was, ‘ohh, I saw this coming’. Pigs were thrown in front of Prophet Muhammad’s house several times. All this is happening because I didn’t support defiance. Most bloggers writing about me are Besigye apologists. They are just being used by Besigye,” (…) “These people’s next move is ‘occupy Parliament’, I know everything. If the demonstration was about greedy Parliamentarians, wouldn’t it be us? I think not, because we don’t represent that category.”

Yep, you’re a brutal speaker and direct as always. That you are connecting Norman Tumuhimbise and his Jobless Brotherhood with the Forum for Democratic Change former Presidential Candidate Besigye; Mr. Tumuhimbise has been arrested, attacked and gotten abducted for his campaign against the NRM. This is the same as Besigye, which is what they have in common Hon. Nsereko. The reason why you are not in the NRM anymore is both of your own implications and also because you know Kampala is hostile to NRM. Therefore to win your seat your alliance with others to get your place in the National Assembly; so you should be a bit more soft-spoken about the people who has opened their arms to you! Looks like to me that you don’t represent Kampala but only yourself and selfish rich interests.

There been reports before you we’re detained in 2012 that you we’re flashing a FDC sign as you reacted to your stances in Parliament and becoming parts of rebellious MPs of the 9th Parliament. Still, that doesn’t sound real. If you don’t believe my sayings, it is something you can look at when there is a report about you in 2013; that says this:

“Politically, Nsereko has been representing NRM in a constituency of Kampala central which has always been very hostile to NRM.  His support base has been made of frustrated Kampala dwellers that are fed up of NRM due to numerous reasons ranging from the challenging economic situations, the high taxes, rent, Jennifer Musisi’s hostile activities of the KCCA’ constant evictions” (…) “Economically speaking; while his accomplices who have been surviving on proceeds from parliament are definitely going to find the economic aspect to find life difficult to cope with, Nsereko is instead likely to enjoy himself. This is because he is known to be very wealthy with financial connections at home and abroad” (…) “Those close to him claim that he is one man who can seal a deal of a million dollar in just two hours. But the NRM might counter this economic advantage by using the money laundering law to stop the foreign dime from flowing to him. And indeed at the height of his disagreement with his party leadership, Nsereko was arrested and detained in crane bank for obtaining huge unexplainable amounts of money” (News.ugo.co.ug, 2013).

So you are one of the men with massive amounts of monies in Crane Bank, maybe you can become their investor? Your connections can really change guards as you have gone from being NRM to become who you are now. That you are hostile to KCCA and Dr. Musisi is not alone, maybe she is stifling your millions and secret agreements that secure your funding and wealth as the connections are used establish yourself.

You had to be kicked out of NRM, still yesterday you are an apologist for the Movement still. Honourable you have just used your place after the ceased trial to cater to opposition while still being loyal to NRM. As I am sure all your rich connections are and still are. Your wealth has to come from the ruling regime and not from dust. With this in mind what you did in 2015 we’re not a surprise:

“Serbian Simo Dubajic has brought his colourful 4-year association with SC Victoria University to an end after sanctioning the sale of the Uganda Premier League club to the Kampala Central Member of Parliament (MP) Muhammad Nsereko in a major takeover (70%)” (…) “MP Nsereko is one of the richest MPs in the country with sources close to youthful legislator intimating to us that Nsereko has got huge investments in the Zambian capital Lusaka and St. Livingstone a suburb in Zambia” (Muneza, 2015).

Now that the foreign wealth in Zambia, owning a Football Club and other unknown wealth as you have already lately showed of your court while going to Parliament; shows how far away from the average man you have become. You’re the NRM Elite, the man who represents the ones who has earned on your allegiance towards the Movement. Therefore your defense of yourself and the acts of greed in Parliament is not shocking.

It would be shocking if you stood by the principals of honesty and accountability. Than you have had to show your wealth in public and not just flaunt it like you do now. Hon. Nsereko you’re a wealthy man in gold and silver, also ambition, but not in respect. You’re tactless and dishonest. You play games for your own gain and not caring about the ones you represent in Kampala.

nsereko-money

Clearly your wealth is your pride, but Hon. Nsereko you might have your wealth and cash-flow more than I can ever dream of. But with that you have to kiss the ring of NRM even when you outside of the Party. You’re a loyal dog to the ‘Old Man with the Hat’ as you know this is the only way to survive the businesses and valuable estates. You can think your Teflon and has the power with your riches. But Hon. Nsereko it is borrowed and when the time is it, it might go into the wind as quickly as your raised it.

That you now trying to connect innocent Norman Tumuhimbise of Jobless Brotherhood with the FDC and Besigye; they are both opposition and work for the same cause getting rid of the draconian regime of Museveni. Still, the reality is that they are only working for the same, but are not run by either or. Hon. Nsereko tries to connect all kind of demonstrations on Besigye and blame him for the difficult political climate. Instead of seeing that people doesn’t’ always work on the same cause together. Even if the NRM has to connect the MPs in USA to a seminar to get them benefitted and bribed in line, as much as the “training” at Kyankwanzi after the election is supposed to do the same. There is supposed to be the same between Tumuhimbise and Besigye. If you can find the missing MoU between FDC and Jobless Brotherhood I wish you the best in your duck-hunt hon. Nsereko!

In 2015 in an interview Mr. Tumuhimbise said this:

“None: One [Mbabazi] whose wife is currently admitted has been part of the past regime and I do not think he can change what was there. The other [Besigye] said he will not come back provided Kiggundu is the Chairman Electoral Commission, he is now back. Surprisingly, If Muntu had gone through, I would be with him running around the whole country, it’s a personal opinion though” (Tukel, 2015).

So Hon. Nsereko before you pick your words knows about the ones you describe, but the wealth has blinded you. The leader of Jobless Brotherhood would have campaigned for Gen. Mugisha Muntu and not even Besigye, the man who apparently using him for his cause. Not like you are being used by the Movement for their cause to look like Opposition. While you in reality are NRM in clothes of opposition just like Hon. Beti Kamya and so many others. Can’t you just talk to Dr. Tanga Odoi and others trade with them like Gen. Otafiire and then you might get a place back again where you rich soul belongs.

Do you know something else that I agrees with Mr. Tumuhimbise said in 2015:

“(Journalist questions him) Rate the current government in one word?

Norman answers: It is taken up by greed!” (Tukel, 2015).

Hon. Nsereko he is speaking about you and your kind who buys football clubs instead of good governance. He describes your disrespectful behaviour and your trading graces to gain popularity. You don’t care about your constituency Hon. Nsereko as you are addressing the Jobless Brotherhood this way. Like Action Aid said in their stats that 62% of all Youth between 20-31 years in Uganda that year in 2015. I am sure honourable that the numbers are most likely the same today. Surely some of the unemployed youth that Tumuhimbise is parts of his demonstrations, as much as there are even more in of them in the Central Kampala.

You are the greedy man that Tumuhimbise is acting upon and that Besigye wants accountability in Parliament and in Government. Something that might look into your portfolio and your connections Honourable Nsereko; that is why you are connected to men you don’t want to disclose and at the same time you want to attack the men who are not like you!

That should you think about if you ever read these humble words I have written to you. Peace.

MPs Want 85 Billion Shillings for Cars (Youtube-Clip)

“In the 9th parliament, the Parliamentary Commission gave each legislature 103 million shillings to procure vehicles that meet their standards as members of Parliament . The story of the 10th parliament is different as the new legislators now want this fee almost doubled. They are now asking for 200 million shillings and if approved then the government will have to part with a total of 85.4 billion shillings for the vehicles alone. They argue that given the state of economy and the new taxes that were imposed on Vehicles, this increment is justified. The new legislators also demand for the reinstatement of the Constituency Development fund that were scrapped in the 9th Parliament. Before scrapping of the fund each legislator was being given 10 million shillings cash annually for the development of his constituency. The legislators also demand for an increment in their monthly emoluments from 26 to 50 million shillings. If Parliament is to pay 50 million shillings per legislator, the Parliamentary commission will then be mandated to spend 21.3 billion shillings on the emoluments of the 427 legislators per month. So before the new legislators can have even their first sitting, these are the demands and before we know it, they will definitely be more than this” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

Hon. Nsereko for Deputy Speaker was flawed from the get-go; we knew the paid NRM MPs would honor their Executive by voting for Hon. Oulanya; and my comments towards the Empty Suits!

Uganda-parliament-2

I am sorry to say this, it’s the spirit of Olara Otunnu that is running through me; the 10th Parliament is running on the same veins as the end of the 9th Parliament. A rigged and well-fueled spirit of the Executive, as the bribes from above high set the standard.

Even Judge Stephen Kavuma, the man behind the decree suspending and abolishing the FDC Party, solemnly swore in Rebecca Kadaga, the loyal bird with feathers for the Executive into Speaker of Parliament, as she speaks and thinks like the Executive. Who knew right?

And you the run for Nsereko is not fair one when the National Resistance Movement even get people like Col. Kulagye to step down for Hon. Oulanyah who has no scruples to gain certain levels of power. As Jacob Oulanyah knows and all who follows knows is that he is elected on ghost votes and not on the local voters as they shunned him.

Hon. Joshua Anywarach wanted to suspend the secret ballot on the Deputy Speaker rally between Oulanyah and Nsereko as then the NRM could check who ate the money fairly and who might not be loyal to the party line under the Executive, though the Speaker Kadaga did not accept that ruling.

That Hon. Oulanyah becoming the Deputy Speaker is not surprising as the money was thrown to the NRM MPs to buy “Suits” and be loyal to the party line, and select the men who the Executive had handpicked for the affair, as he knows that he can control them and their decisions, by throwing pocket-chains while the Executive clears the Bank of Uganda and all other funds for himself. As he keeps the Members of Parliament Ignorant and silence the Opposition… those who don’t believe that ask either FDC or JEEMA about that recently?

Even if Nathan Nandala-Mafabi was a part of the opening of the House and the Parliament, still the Forum for Democratic Change is not in a peaceful place and in a honorable position, while they are either in courts, detained or harassed by the Police Force.

So the news of this today shouldn’t surprise you:

“Only 398 members of 427 MPs have so far registered for the sitting today. Voting delayed as Clerks counter check” (NBS TV Uganda, 19.05.2016).

I am sure 20 of them is either on house-arrest or even detained as we speak, because they surely parts of the few MPs from the FDC that the NRM Regime and their Police Force have silenced as the crackdown on the opposition, that went into high gear in the days running up to the swearing in of Museveni for his seventh term.

NTV Uganda 19.05.2016

“Hon. Rwamirana and UPC’s Hon. Betty Amongin second nomination of Hon. Oulanyah as deputy Speaker of the 10th parliament” (NTV Uganda, 19.05.2016).

While the Uganda People’s Congress, was as expected acting as a NRM branch of token loyalty, something Otunnu 2 years ago spoke about that the NRM had paid several of the leadership to follow Museveni instead of the Party Line, so the historical party have switched from being a one of kind and instead is as loyal to the Executive as the other parts of NRM-O and the NRM CEC. That is sad sight and shows what price the agreement between Hon. Jimmy Akena and his central leadership in the UPC have done with the NRM during the Election. 

Just as the Executive have crashed the opposition, he has also done everything in his power to succumb the Media as he hated the release of the obvious Muhoozi Project that even escalated this week, as he sieged Daily Monitor and shut down the paper for days after a letter was released through the paper and from Gen. Sejusa’s files. People forget that so fast. So yesterday’s announcement should be put into the space:

“President Museveni has appointed former Daily Monitor Managing Editor Don Wanyama as his Presidential Press Secretary replacing Tamale Mirundi” (NBS TV Uganda, 18.05.2016).

Secret Ballot Parliament 19.05.2016

So the Daily Monitor who has been less of an opposition paper and been more in favor of the NRM, shows it’s true face as in the reality they have been shadowed by the regime ever since. So with this in mind, that an opposition like Muhammad Nsereko tries to become Deputy Speaker is flawed, as the UPC and Daily Monitor is not really opposition anymore, you have to fly birds with Chimps Reports. While just let the boggled mind still believe that Andrew Mwenda is think-tank on his own, while sounding the horn of the corruption and his own corrupt mind, that is fitting with the ush. 5M suits of 19th May that gave way to Jacob Oulanyah and his gracious ways.

So my mind went like this while the MPs we’re voting in the Parliament. This is what happen after the secret ballot that even certain MPs was afraid about, since the NRM MPs gotten more money to vote for the candidate that the Executive have decided for them. As Hon. Rebecca Kadaga:  “If everyone has voted I now invite MP Nsereko and MP Oulanyah to nominate atleast 2 agents”.

Deputy Speaker Uganda 19.05.2016

Kadaga and the Parliament are after two hours voting as the Speaker didn’t’ need a vote, since she was unopposed. While the Deputy Speaker between Hon. Oulanyah and Hon. Nsereko. Even as the counting was going on, the Executive wanted to control the voting and tallying as he wants his vision on everything and that has gone stronger with his age, soon he will tell the cooks at the parliament how much bananas they need in the matooki to make it the Western Ugandan way; President Museveni: “I would like to raise a point of order”.

Speaker Kadaga: “No your Excellency. As this happen”.

As they count Daily Monitor recounts the tallying like this:

“CORRECTION: MP’s jeer when Nsereko’s name is read out. Well It is Oulanya, Oulanya, Oulanya and they reply yeeee” (Daily Monitor, 19.05.2016).

Nsereko 19.05.2016

So seems like this set the standard and that Oulanya or Oulanyah is the one to be the deputy speaker in Parliament, as I expected when I woke up this morning and would be the same when I was going back to bed tonight. President, the Executive Museveni had paid the NRM to be his puppets in the house and Parliament and he will continue to pay them to act in his stead in Parliament. It cost to be an empty suit in the Ugandan Parliament first of the verdicts and bought choices of the Executive is 5 Million Shillings and surely give way for Hon. Oulanya.

The results of voting in the Parliament on the Deputy Speaker were this:

Oulanya – 300 Votes,

Nsereko – 115 Votes,

Invalid – 1 Vote.

The one invalid vote must be somebody special, who do you think is the fellow who made the bo-boo in Parliament today?

As the NRM Party wrote seconds after the announcement:

“300 votes cast in favour of Jacob Oulanyah for Dep Speaker of #10thParliament” (NRM Party, 19.05.2016).

Oulanyah 19.05.2016

With this result is there some way that Eng. Badru M. Kiggundu the voting genius can cook this result to a massive result, and make it even more aggressively win in the Parliament, as the Executive believes he should have sanitized the whole of the Parliament.

So my thoughts from this morning was justified, as the Executive had to be there and spread his fear and intimidate the newly selected NRM MPs who doesn’t know his procedures and his rule. In the Parliament in Uganda, you are if you are a NRM Member there, you are a mouthpiece of the President Museveni and not your own mind, just look at Otafiire, did he sound like a wise-man or somebody who thought on his own? The same will be with his new cabinet, where people will work for the Executive, not for the grand state or the progress of Uganda, but to centralize the Power amongst the Executive, nothing else, and the Opposition who is there, is so that he can pin-point at them and smile to the Donors, “We have sort of Multi-Party Democracy, but they got no party in decisions, but they are there, remember give me and my Government money!”.

Enough of the nonsense at Parliament while Dr. Kizza Besigye ferment in Luzira, and is charged with treason, while the Opposition is harassed and treated as criminals, because they stand-up against the Executive and does not follow his mission, sorry vision. To the Executives way to gain wealth for himself and his family that he has worked on over time. Still, I will leave with the statement from the FDC Secretary Harold Kaija as he was freed today after days on days in SID Kireka. Take a look!

Harold Kaija

Harold Kaija’s statement after being released from SID Kirek Prison:

“FREE AT LAST

I want to thank all that stood with me when the Dictator jailed me for 9 days at SID Kireeka for defying Justice Kavuma’s order!

In the Kireeka cells I found Ariho Sam well known in the FDC circles at MUK. He is charged with treason. He inserted my name and that of Michael Kabaziguruka in his statement as one of the people he consulted while starting his activities. I asked him why, he told me he had been beaten. I find this strange!! The truth is that I had not seen him for 7 years. He called me one day and u invited him to office. I told him that our party was only involved in Non Violence Actions.

I want to thank my Brother Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi I made a One Man Protest at the SID offices until I was released yday. He asked to be jailed with me if they didn’t allow him to go with me.

From what we gathered, all FDC cases, the IGP has the final case.

I can’t forget those who didn’t fear to come to Kireeka to visit me. Hon. Mwiru Paul, Hon. Adeke Anna Ebaju, and her sister, Hon. Wafula Oguttu, Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju, Dr. Odwer, Senior Counsel Rwakafuzi.

Activists Kigongo Ayub, Fred W Mutibwa, Ayub, Kalule Sam, Namutebi, Richard Nyombi Byemalo, Musitwa, the NRM Poor Youth,

My family David, Ruth and Edna.

I also want to thank the Social Media Activists for demanding for my release that one day the Kireeka leadership had to come to my cell at mid night to find out if I was keeping my phone. There was Punic allover the place for two days.

Lastly I thank Ingrid Turinawe and Doreen for the mobilisation.

What I can authoritatively tell u is that we have a lot of support in the forces” (Harold Kajja, 19.05.2016).

That’s enough for now. Peace.
