Opinion: The Special Forces Command got an upgrade

President Museveni today elevated the Commando Battalion of Special Forces Command into a Brigade after passing out over 1,000 commandos who have been undergoing specialised training. The Brigade is in charge of special operations. Let nobody think of messing up with Uganda” (Duncan Abigaba, 08.05.2021)

Yesterday the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni upgraded the Special Forces Command (SFC). It has gone from being a Command Battalion to a Brigade. The SFC passing out 1256 commando soldiers too. This meaning the SFC will be more important for the President.

The SFC is already commanded by the Presidential Advisor for Special Operations and Commander of the SFC being Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga. Who happens to be the son of the President. This is why it’s suspicious, but giving him more power.

The Son of the President is getting more people to command and order around. This is upgrading his role and also stature in the army. Muhoozi has already gotten titles and roles because of the lineage. Not because his so special or have other abilities.

The SFC have already had more power and participated in the inner-works of the current regime. The SFC was part of the massacre in Kasese. The SFC was the armed forces who invaded the chambers of Parliament. The same forces who has also abducted, kidnapped and even extra judicial killed civilian dissidents in the recent elections.

Therefore, the upgrade and the boosting of SFC is to give Muhoozi more power. A man who already been able to serve injustice and have no accountability for it.

The SFC have violated people, killed civilians and still there been not aftermath. Now the Special Operations under the UPDF is bigger. Giving the son more armed men to follow his lead. They have the ability to do more damage and cause more harm. This isn’t a positive. The pain and suffering served in the recent term. Could turn even worse.

As Muhoozi have now a brigade behind him. These will follow his orders and his words. If he see it fit or righteous. These soldiers can now not only knock-on doors, but brutally attack opposition. These soldiers are trained killers and could easily be used to thwart anyone opposing or trying to demonstrate.

Muhoozi has now been given a huger portfolio. This is a blessing for him and a validation of what he has done to serve his father. The General is giving his Lt. Gen. more men. A clear proposition to continue what he does and approach people the way he does.

This isn’t good news, but worrying news. As the rise of power and usage of military power shows the true vicious signs of this regime. There isn’t anything positive here. The public will suffer and the dissidents especially.

If there will be another Kasese or something similar wouldn’t shock me. When they have promoted and given the Lt. Gen such a role after all of this. This is happening because his the son and the heir. He is rising and getting stronger. Though that is all through the military and not true the support of the people. Peace.

Opinion: Electoral Commission is in a pickle [since it still hasn’t released the “declared results”]

The Electoral Commission in 2021 is doing itself a disservice, as it is has no released or made the declared Presidential and Parliamentary Results public on its page. Just as the polls of 14th January 2021 is “contested” but more “rigged” than truthful. It is not like the public can trust these results, when the main contender is house-arrested and his allies is rounded up and detained indefinitely. It is not like the state or the ruling regime wants it to be legitimately at all. Their actions speaks of rigging, injustice and impunity.

The EC could have been transparent and the authorities could have acted like that. They National Talley Centre could have been sincere and open, but it wasn’t. It doesn’t help that law enforcement and soldiers are doing what they can to get their hands of Declarations Forms from the opposition. Just so the opposition doesn’t have the first declared results from their polling agents. While the state also arrested so many polling agents from the opposition the day before the polls itself. Therefore, the state does what it can and deliberately make it all go into the dark.

Now that we are on the 24th January 2021 and the announced results was on the 16th January 2021. The amount of days makes people question it even more. The secretive measures, keeping the declared results under wraps. Uploading and later deleting it too. Doesn’t make someone trust the EC more. It makes you wonder, if they found issues in the algorithms that made the “results” possible.

The EC is showing its a heist. Because, if the numbers and percentages of a victory was real. They would have released the results as soon as possible. The EC is quickly releasing By-Election results when its in favour of the state. The same should be possible here. However, the DR Forms uploaded to the UVote App and that will distort the possible breaches. Just like the results first dropped proved some polling stations had more voters, than registered voters there.

This is why the EC is still keeping it under wraps, even when the President has “won” and its over with. If it was already fixed and done. It should be in the public domain. As the NBS Television and NTV Uganda proclaimed it. The EC had their presser and announced it. Still, the lack of transparency and accountability proves they are neglecting their mission. They are not counting the initial votes, but is fixing the results in favour of man. That is why its hard to jumble the results and get it correctly to what they said.

When you do fraud at least try to make it seem legit. However, the EC cannot even do that. They have stolen the money from the bank, but they are not even willing to spend the money. They are not buying flashing cars and expensive meals. No, they are keeping it in another vault and hidden. These folks did the robbery, but will not prove their heist. Because, if they did. The ones looking through UVote results versus EC announced results would get two different outcomes. Which we know will happen, but they are just postponing the inevitable. Peace.

Uganda Decides: IGAD EOM Preliminary Report is hot garbage

The 14th January 2021 is sort of concluded, even though we are in early stages of the post-election and between the 10th Parliament and the 11th Parliament. The drill is the new ones are sworn-in and a massive show of power at Kololo before the President is sworn-in himself. Therefore, the whole parade of glory is soon upon us and with that the mediocre and lacking reports of the Election Observation Missions (EOMs).

This election was only the toothless and spinless organizations allowed to watch. The continents own IGAD EOMs, EAC EOM and AU EOM. These are usually rubber-stamping any event or election in favour of the regime currently reigning. They are not composed to tell or expose the realities on the ground. These are just there to legitimize the affairs and do the bidding of the member state. In this regard today. Yesterday’s released IGAD EOM Preliminary Report on the Uganda Elections of 2021.

The 7 page leaflet isn’t giving you any insights or deeper understanding. Just a poor excuse for someone to have a journey to Kampala and eat matooki. The IGAD sent 22 observers and was led by Siraj Fegessa and he would not really say much about what went down.

Like you know they are not all that. When they were not observing the voter registration process. Neither was the EOM following the campaign process. That means whatever happened before the 14th January. They we’re not participating or even seeing. This really limits their scope and what can really say.

The limited mission was able to say that the election was “conducted in an orderly and peaceful manner”. Even when they we’re stating some minor grievances at the polling stations, the material and such. However, they we’re not indulging in that. Neither was that stated in the conclusions. Only that the Internet shutdown “affected coordination” made it for the EOM to operate.

The IGAD had a few recommendations, but we know by history that Museveni and NRM will bin these. They only wants the statement of “orderly and peaceful manner”. Which they will use for headlines and seal the deal of the polls. So, that they can move on and crown themselves kings again. Peace.

Gen. Museveni returns triumphantly after rigging his sixth election

I am not going to be polite to people anymore. I normally show politeness but people don’t pick up” – Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Musveni (16.01.2021)

Yet again, another day and another National Address by General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Since his wearing military fatigue. I anticipate his in the role of General and not as President. This must be to intimidate even further. As his main opponent is under House-Arrest. Most of the opposition activists and mobilizers are behind bars. Therefore, the victory of 14th January 2021 is as hallow as it can be. Because, what sort of victory can you proclaim. When you have directly arrested, harassed and brutally attacked during the campaign period.

There is nothing today that makes this process legit or make it seem credible. This is an election heist. Because the President appoints the Electoral Commission, the authorities and has the armed forces behind him. If he didn’t appoint or command all parts of government these sorts of schemes would work. However, since its so embedded and the President can touch all parts of government and order it. That is why today happened and his glorious televised is happening during a internet, social media and media black-out. Which is vicious attempt to stop information from flowing and the sad reality of a stolen election.

If you cannot go down and know the problems of the people then you cannot be a leader on our side. I have been following what has been happening. There is nothing I don’t know. I know who has been giving money to who. They were talking of a new Uganda and yet they wanted to bring back an old Uganda that failed. The Uganda of tribalism” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (16.01.2021)

This is the sort of man he is. He speaks for instance of politeness. However, calling people parasites and insects isn’t a man who is polite. Neither is a man who uses the guns, the authorities and the state to oppress, arrest and torture civilians for their political affiliation. There is nowhere in the last few years where he has shown humility or even care for the general public. No, he rather see villages burn and people get destroyed for standing in his way. It is not like General Museveni is caring or even showing any sort of grace. He even getting old people on their knees while they beg to give him money. Was that polite of him? No, it wasn’t, but that’s who he is.

Again, he speaks also that his the oracle of the Republic. The man who knows everything. The only man with a vision. “There is nothing I don’t know”. Apparently, he has eyes and ears everywhere. The man who knows the insights to everyone and can assess their thoughts. However, if that was so. Maybe, he would have won an election and not rigged it. Maybe, if that was true. Maybe he would be smart enough to retire. If the old man knew everything. He wouldn’t still be running this charade and act a fool in a military fatigue.

You know his not a favourable person or a man of the people. When he had to state this: “ I told you that the riots will not happen and if they did try, they will be dealt with. Not like the other time when the police was caught by surprise” (Museveni, 16.01.2021).

Instead of understanding or taking accountability for the riots. As it was per his orders and his law enforcement that made it happen. His again going after the victims and the possible future victims. Because, it is never his fault that his overstaying in power and isn’t the popular leader anymore. His just another tyrant who disrespect his population, again and again.

In the end he ends with this nonsense: “The important thing is to maintain peace so that any dialogue is peaceful and meaningful. If anybody tries to disrupt our peace, we shall deal with them decisively” (Museveni, 16.01.2021).

A man who chooses the gun and use lethal means to settle the score. He speaks of dialogue, but that is the same man detains, torture and kills his enemies. It sort of hard to have dialogue when you using vile force. Your the sort of man who only uses dialogue to find the ones who can be compromised and paid-off. Not, using dialogue to build a broader platform or fight the injustice. An injustice, which is promoted and embedded in this government.

Again, he ends with a warning. That is directed at the opposition. The ones scorn and beaten by the authorities. They have no legal remedies or place to settle grievances. The state only assaults them and violates their rights as citizens. So, if they do riot or demonstrate. The state will answer with fierce and lethal force. Therefore, there is no way this can end well. Peace.

African Election Watch (AEW): The European Union must not endorse Military Coronation in the name of Elections (16.01.2021)

Museveni “Won” [but what Bobi Wine does now is important]

The election of 14th January 2021 is going as anticipated and following ordinary scheduled programming. It is now on the 16th January 2021 that incumbent President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni won the Presidential Election. Media houses is stating this is sixth term, which is wrong. As then your deleting a decade of his rule. He had two terms between 1986 to 1996 without any elections, as the President suspended elections after the coup in 1986. Therefore, these two unannounced terms needs to be counted. Not only his rigged elections ever since, which counts to 6. That is why they say his on the sixth term. When his in reality on his 8th term by 2021. If he stands in 2026 he would by my calculation be on his 9th term.

Alas, what has happened now was the finalization of the cooked results. Announcing the results in favour … of the President and his party – National Resistance Movement (NRM). The NRM have control of the 11th Parliament and the Presidency. Yes, the opposition got lots of seats and Bobi Wine’s NUP has a mandate. However, they will be a big opposition party, but not taking any stakes of the plate and Museveni has enough minions to keep power.

What Bobi Wine does now is vital. As he will be called a criminal and his party will be targeted. The headquarters might be raided again. Bobi Wine most likely will be charged with treason and flown away from Buganda. That is what has happened before with other candidates. Bobi Wine will get the colonial treatment by the NRM and President.

Bobi Wine and National Unity Platform better get the hard-drives and the documentation of the electoral fraud. The massive targeting of the party and proof of how the state has rigged this election. Put a giant petition to the Constitutional Court. Yes, that Court is filled with career judges who will not judge in favour. However, the act of doing this is proving the allegations and showing the truth. A truth that the state distorts and will peddle lies about. They will mock and joke about this move. However, that will historically prove that Bobi Wine is the big-man. Just like Besigye did in the past and did what he could to prove the malicious system of rigging in favour of Museveni.

Bobi Wine and NUP will struggle. They are walking targets and that hasn’t changed. The NUP have been targeted, assaulted, arrested and even extra judicial killings. Therefore, the elections might be over. However, the oppression and impunity will not stop. That will persist as long as this system is alive.

Museveni only have strength, because he has the army and commands it. The President will use that and law enforcement to ensure his prolonged time in office. Not like the President is wanted or has the love of the general population. He doesn’t have the aspects of liberator anymore. His the tyrant and grand dictator. The man who has an office, because he got the guns, but he doesn’t have the love.

President Museveni might feel like a winner, but the sad thing is his the biggest loser. Museveni is a loser and not a big-man. The President will be remembered for the atrocities and human rights violations. The mismanagement and maladministration, the grand corruption and lack of transparency. The President will not go down as hero, but as a villain. Surely for the ones following him. Knows that this wasn’t what people thought would happen in the 1990s. When he was crowned the new generation of leaders.

However, that was a lie. Museveni wasn’t a new generation, but someone who could sell a story and become a donor darling. Now he has used that goodwill and acts in open like the ones he toppled. Bobi Wine has proven that and his campaign has undermined Museveni. That will only continue as long as Bobi Wine hogs the airwaves. President Museveni cannot contain him forever. As his life isn’t long enough. The next up is challenging him…. and he will not go away. Even if Besigye didn’t be on the ballot. Besigye have still supported the cause and been a supportive figure in opposition. This means that Bobi Wine and the FDC will still be voices of reason in the middle of oppression. Peace.

Opinion: A rigged election will have inconsistent announced results

The Electoral Commission is announcing the Presidential Elections, which is practically between President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and Presidential Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. The polls happened on 14th January 2021 and it’s now soon 48 hours since it happened. Within the stipulated time for the finalization announced results.

These results will not make sense. There will be to many voters at a polling station. It will be percentages not adding up. Neither will districts or declaration forms versus the announced results will differ.

In this election like previous ones. There will suddenly be announced results where polling stations has 100% turnout and others have extensive amounts of voters. In manner which doesn’t make sense. It is all done to creep the matrix and the algorithms to ensure the results looks significantly true. While the ghosts, goats and twice voters will be important for the President. These are the tricks of the rigging.

That is why EC and the authorities have gone after polling agents and mobilizers of the opposition. So, that they could take the Declaration Forms of the Polling Stations and also take all evidence of fraud. Since, the Declaration Form will most likely have another official result, than what the National Talley Centre is posting.

This sort of manner and sort of election isn’t new. The Uvote App is able to collect a lot of evidence of the fraud. However, these has to be collected for a Constitutional Court petition. Where you meet fellow judges who is all appointed and have a career because of Museveni. These brothers and sisters in chambers of Court is all aligned with the Presidency. Therefore, they will not risk their lives or careers over a just cause. No, these folks will all be behind the President.

That is why this documentation is only worthy for historical fashion. As a proof of how Museveni rigged himself again. The man who went to war over rigged election in 1980 is making a worse one himself. Thanks to the social media, VPN and smartphones. It’s hard to hide the facts and the truths of the systemic efforts to rig this election.

Bobi Wine is now is now in the same juxtaposition as Besigye in the past. While European Union Envoy speaks of “impressive peaceful elections” only proving to be empty suits. It is impressive how violent the campaigns have been, the amount of impunity, the manner the state has arrested opposition activists, leaders and candidates ahead of the polls. While they are now rigging the results in favour the President and his NRM. That is the reality of it all.

Even with the gains of the opposition in Parliament. They will still not cause a giant shift. That because they haven’t been able to challenge and field candidates in many districts. That is a deliberate act of the state to stifle their efforts and pre-rigging the elections. Even getting several of MPs without even having a contest. That is all for a reason in combination with the rampant creation of districts and new constituencies. Not forget all of that. That is why the NRM have the majority and will “reason” for having the Presidency too.

However, the stats and the numbers games is out of whack. It will not be credible results and the announced ones will not either fit any of the pre-fixed numbers. That is why the EC is just busy cooking and the percentages to make it believable. Nevertheless, it is a lie and the President wants to live on lie. Peace.

Bobi Wine is Pre-Emptive House-Arrested in Magere, Wakiso district

It is now official on the 15th January 2021. The Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) have breached the compound and has now pre-emptive house-arrested Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. This have happened to the main opposition in 2016. When Dr. Kizza Besigye home in Kasangati was closed off and besieged by the authorities for a long period of time.

Now Bobi Wine will go through the same motions as Besigye did. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is using the same means now on the National Unity Platform (NUP) Presidential Candidate Bobi Wine is getting the same treatment.

Even the sorts of pictures released from Magere in Wakiso districts looks like the ones of Besigye. This is repeating the same sort of action towards the main competitor. Nobody should be shocked, but know this is Modus Operandi (M.O.).

The ones that is shocked haven’t followed an election in Uganda before. The NRM is always using the military to supporting its political arm. That is why the soldiers are stationed and has arrested Bobi Wine without any proper charges or reasons. This is an un-warrented arrest of a Presidential Candidate the day after the polls.

That is the sad reality … and only shows the injustice and impunity ravening the Republic. Peace.

Uganda Decides: Bobi Wine’s House Besieged by the UPDF

Today on the 15th January 2021 in Magere, Wakiso district the soldiers and law enforcement in plain clothes have ceased onto the property of the National Unity Platform President Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. The house has already been under siege and military have been around it for over 2 months.

Last night there was reports as well, but that was quickly dismissed. Though today, the news is coming out and Bobi Wine stated it online. His practically house-arrested and that was to be anticipated. As Bobi Wine is challenging Museveni and in the head of the old man, that’s treason. So, Bobi Wine have been treasonous and the issue is that his been successful in challenging him.

Today the UPDF and possibly Special Force Command (SFC) have escalated the pressure and is acting up like they did in previous election too. The army and police did house arrest Besigye for months. Now, its starting with Bobi Wine. His now the main target of the state and that is why they are doing this now.

This was to be anticipated. At one point or another. Now, we can just wait for the treason charge and the choppers take him to up-country, and charge him at a Court Martial. That is the next step and what I am awaiting. As this is the escalation from the authorities. This is an pre-emptive arrest and house-arrest of Bobi Wine.

Bobi Wine is now under siege. That was to be expected, because that’s what the state do. They are incriminate Bobi Wine, because he challenged Museveni and that’s enough for them. Peace.

Lt. Gen. Muhoozi commands the SFC again [and expect a vicious operation by the SFC during the polls]

JUST IN: First son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has been re-appointed as SFC commander while Gen Sabiti Muzeyi has been sacked as Deputy IGP and sent back for redeployment. The army is set to release a statement explaining the changes shortly” (NTV Uganda, 16.12.2020).

President son and Presidential Advisor for Special Operations have been redeployed to Special Force Command (SFC). The literal Presidential Guards to operate and be their commander ahead of the polls in 2021. Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba wouldn’t be there and at this position if he wasn’t part of the first family.

This isn’t the first time his the commander of SFC… this is something that he has had control over since 2008 or so. Only a short stint with someone else, until his now reassigned. This a family affair and only giving him back the command and control of these soldiers.

As the commander of this outfit he has ordered them to the Kasase massacre and ambush on the Parliament ahead of the Age Limit. Therefore, this man has no issues to answer with violence and do it without any consequences.

So, this man gets that ability in the end of the year and in the up-coming election. Expect him to answer the pleas of his father and do his bidding. Be brutal and violent ahead of the polls in January 2021. This here will not make things better, but expect it to be worse.

To give way and make it possible for a man like this and with his huge ego. We can just wonder what he will do. If the Special Force Command suddenly intervened in rallies of Bobi Wine and POA. That would make sense. If the SFC blocks roads and ambush hotels. That would be natural at this point and then shift the blame on the victims. Who the SFC attacked and did unwarranted operations too.

Therefore, this redeployment is an direct move to intimidate and show fierce force ahead of the polls. Because, the Lt. Gen have no quarrels to send troops and attack civilians. Instead of securing the territory from outside alien forces. This man goes after self-created enemies and create havoc. The SFC will continue to be known for things like this.

A man that would operate the SFC soldiers in plain clothes within the chambers of Parliament in favour of his father. That’s why this move is a dangerous one. He wants to incite fear and uses a known man and loyal to son to serve that. The President does this to prove a point and the timing is perfect for this.

In this regard, expect the SFC to wreck havoc and intimidate as well. The SFC will be operational and used in favour of the President. They will not act for peace, but to brutalize anyone standing in the way of the President and his party. That is why they are prepared and has Muhoozi at the helm just a month ahead of the polls.

If the Special Force Command suddenly does a brutal and gets violent on the opposition or the citizens who gathers around them. If not they are abducting and arresting someone associated without any warrant or charge. That could easily happen too. Especially, when someone like Lt. Gen. Muhoozi is in control.

This does not deem well. The SFC have already been used viciously and with him commanding it. I can only expect more of it. Peace.
