Opinion: Rukutana is clearly above the law [and your not!]

The high ranking official and the beloved appointee of the “high above” Mwesigwa Rukutana have been acquitted by the courts after shooting and killing a civilian, as he lost the National Resistance Movement Primaries in early September 2020.

He was the incumbent MP in the Parliament, but lost. However, the man has been a Minister of various Ministries from 2001 to 2015. He was the Deputy Attorney General from 2015 to 2019. While being the MP from 2016 to 2021. The MP is now out and lost his seat.

Still with all of that his out of legal jeopardy. A man who can use his AK-47 and use vile force. However, have no consequences. A Minister for 14 years, Deputy Attorney General of the Republic for 4 years.

If a man who has been such a honourable for so long and had titles in Republic should know better. He should be a better man, apparently that is too much to ask.

Rukutana used his weapon for no other reason that he lost his place and had to retaliate against the ones who humiliated him. The entitlement is real, but his still served with it. As he could get away with the usage of weapons on others.

Two weeks later in Fresh Primaries he became the winner of the Primaries too. That was after the first round of Primaries. He needed to get his way and couldn’t accept anything else. This shows how some are “better” and is “above the law”. A lawmaker like this is apparently so in this regime. He got the stripes and a second chance.

However, the former Minister was booted out in the General Election in January 2021. Just like he was in the first bloody Primary in September 2020. Rukutana was now acquitted in April 2021 for the actions done in September 2020. That says a lot… while he still lost his seat as an MP.

What we can say by all of this. Is that if your part of the Movement and anointed by the high above. You can easily get a out of the jail free-card. That is what he did while others are lingering in jail for their political affiliation.

Rukutana … is not only lucky but entitled. He has the character and the ability to shoot someone and get away with it. We know the opposition cannot even sneeze on the streets or gather without legal jeopardy. While the Movement own can do whatever and get run away from the law. They are above the law and cannot be touched. However, if anyone around Bobi Wine did the same. They would be charged with murder and the prison officials would throw away the keys.

Nevertheless, Rukutana isn’t with the umbrella, but his anointed by the yellow bus. That is why his off the hook. If Nubian Li or anyone else did this. They wouldn’t see the light of day. That is just the reality of it all and its distasteful and disgraceful. The state shows how the law doesn’t matter for some. It just matters that you have the right people around you and suction to the State House. If you have that… you don’t have to worry about the law or the courts. That is for the peasants or the opposition. Peace.

NRM Primaries: Rukutana got a third life

Some people are apparently entitled to run and be the victors. One of these is the forever loyal cadre Mwesigwa Rukutana who has been proclaimed winner of Rushenyi County in Ntungamo District for the second time. The third official results from this district since the National Resistance Movement (NRM) held their primaries.

The last time he was proclaimed winner was on the 9th September after being released out of prison on bail after post-election violence that led to one innocent civilian killed. However, that case is pending and without any trail in the near future.

On the 5th September 2020 the Minister and loyal cadre was dismissed and lost the elections. He was one of the big-men losing in the polls. Nevertheless, that has since changed twice.

First there was 12 ghost polling stations arriving on the 9th September and now on the 23rd September he apparently won with only 20 voters. If you find this suspicious. Well, you should, because this whole exercise is dumb at this point.

This is not examination of the voters will, but bugging the numbers, nudging the polls to fit Rukutana. That is how it looks and no matter what spin the NRM the agents of the party does. It is the perception the public gets and they will most likely rig him in the general election in 2021 too.

The NRM seems to whatever they can to scrap some of the loyal cadres. Suspend elections and suddenly tally the votes not only twice, but three times to get the supposed verdict. The people voting didn’t matter, it was the gentlemen or the people inside closed chambers who mattered. They ensured one man could win.

He could use force, he could use his title and the reach within the party to get his way. Not because his a beloved character, but because the President needs men like these. Apparently so. A man who can easily pull the trigger and take a life. That is the sort of man the President wants to promote, yet again.

That is the tragedy in all of this. Rukutana isn’t suited for a high ranking official job. He should answer for his crime and his action earlier in September. While now his praising himself and his team to crowned the NRM Flag-Bearer. That is what has happened.

It is tragic, but its so 2020. This is so NRM and its bloody insane. However, this is what the President promotes and gives the public. Making opposition felons, while promoting real felons within his own ranks. Peace.

NRM Primaries: Rukutana MP gets a second life… [12 ghosts comes and saves him]

On the 9th September, Minister Mwesigwa Rukutana was announced as the loser of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Primaries, as he was supposed loser of the race for MP in Rushenyi County. Today on the 15th September 2020 he was released bail after using weapons and discharging guns at the winning team after the polls.

Not only was he released, but the NRM Electoral Commission have now announced him as a winner after a recount. This shows that the Bush-Men can win elections, even when they are loosing. There was to many Ministers losing, so the “high above” had to save him.

The man who has been a minister from 2001 to 2015 and Deputy Attorney General from 2015 to 2019. The State Minister for Labour still have to answer for the life of Dan Rweiburingi. The fatality after the post election violence that happen after Rukutana was announced the loser.

So, it’s not funny that the NRM EC and Dr. Tanga Odoi have now a week later changed the results. This just spitting in the face of the voters and the supposed members of the NRM. That is just a selection of a candidate, not an election. As the incumbent and big-man could just overturn the poll.

The NRM now says they didn’t count 12 polling stations before the first announced results. That sounds like ghosts appeared. Since, its weird that they didn’t have this on the first round. If you want contested results and questionable results. Then you delver life altering results this far after.

The person who has now lost the Flag-Bearer as MP for Rushenyi County for the NRM should petition the courts and go after the NRM EC. Especially since it out of nowhere there was 12 new polling stations.

The NRM must really believe in ghosts. Suddenly ghosts voted for the Minister and the ally of the President. To ensure his victory. They just appeared late after the fact.

If you want to believe in the results of an election. This is not the way to generate trust. Since, this seems like election rigging after the fact. Just to favour a beloved and trusted character of the President.

So, the ghosts of 12 polling stations gave him a second life, which is only because of his stature around the President. If he didn’t have a special place … he would have been ditched, but suddenly the NRM EC had a new tally. They could just configure the polls to fit the needs of the Rukutana. Peace.

NRM Primaries: Rukutana’s actions should land him in prison… [and hopefully an end to him being a high ranking official too]

Just imagine being anybody else. If a random bloke would pick up a AK-47 from a soldier and kill a civilian. That is what Mwesigwa Rukutana did after losing the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Primaries ahead of the General Election.

Instead of being humble, showing grace and being a man who concedes defeat. He instead picked up a gun and shot a agent of another campaigner in Rushenyi County in Ntungamo district.

He was the incumbent MP in the Parliament, but lost. However, the man has been a Minister of various Ministries from 2001 to 2015. He was the Deputy Attorney General from 2015 to 2019. While being the MP from 2016 to 2021. The MP is now out and lost his seat.

There is reports of his arrests. However, this man been part of the NRM from the beginning. This man is one of the loyal cadres of the President. Him killing a man will not stop that. Sooner or later, the acquitted case or dissolve the case. Someone picking up the pieces and stopping it. Even if there are viral videos of the act and the pictures of the deceased are all online.

The big-man has fallen. We have seen other Ministers gotten away with crimes and gotten vindicated. They have to act upon him. He killed an innocent civilian who happen to be associated with someone who he lost too.

The man is a member of Uganda Law Society, a lawmaker and former Deputy Attorney General. This man should know better, but apparently his ego and his entitlement is over the roof.

Rukutana has told people to “go hang” and that the President “is a gift from God”. His the loyalist of all. The one who tells off others and says they need to back off. He has done that as a man of power and is used to get away with it. The man can have a sex-scandal and still get away with it.

Still, this time it might be different. Yes, his arrested and charged. However, we know that this man has his whole career been loyal to Museveni. Museveni promotes fella’s like this and gives them titles. Let them get rich, eat the spoils and swim in impunity.

Rukutana has gotten away with land-scandals, insider-trading and other things in the past. Maybe this time. He has to answer for his crimes. Now, he needs to answer for the life of Dan Rweiburingi. Who lost his life after the shooting yesterday.

Not only did Rukutana lose his seat as an MP, but he lost his mind. Thinking he could use a weapon and get back control. A family lost a loved ones. Friends lost a buddy and Uganda lost a citizen. Because, a Minister and a former Deputy Attorney General.

It shouldn’t be like this. A man of this power and allegiances even with the loss yesterday. Could most like likely end up with an appointment somewhere. Alas, what he did was not only killing an innocent civilian, but also ending his career.

His told his as powerful as God, but I doubt that his immortal. Therefore, the mercy and grace has to delivered by the President to save his ass. However, that depends on of his wants impunity and extra judicial killings to be his hallmark ahead of the General Elections. That is not a good look.

Rukutana should answer for the shooting, the deliberate act of violence and murder of Dan. That only makes sense. Everything else is self-destruction of his own career. Peace.

Opinion: Rukutana inserts God instead of Guns…

I want to confirm to you that NRM is still very strong, our chairman is very strong. At age 75 what he does me Rukutana at 60 can’t do; even my friends can’t do them. Pushups he does, the walking, his brain, his thinking, his speaking. He gives a speech even if he has not written; I have moved with him many times and in many places, this man, he was given to us by God, he is a ruler of leaders”Mwesigwa Rukutana, State Minister for Labor and Industrial Relations spoke on Radio Ankole on the 3rd January 2020 (Perez Rumanzi – ‘Museveni is a super human given to us by God- Rukutana’ 05.01.2020).

It is so weird how liberation movements have to make their self-styled Presidents for Life. Give them the power of deities and the power of the Gods. That the men in and around the President have to say his supernatural, that he has forever force. Like his Darth Vader or anyone else who can feel the force. The eternal mastermind has given the President wisdom of the forefathers and so-on. There is nothing he still cannot do, even as his ageing and becoming weaker. Though his closest associates will say he can run marathon and still impregnate virgins.

That is just what it sounds to me. This is coming from a loyalist. Someone who has been close to the President over all these years. He got make President Museveni look like greatest ever setting his feet on the soil of planet earth. With the words of Rukutana, it seems like God had intervened and gave his eternal wisdom directly into the ears of Museveni. As he can naturally speak in tongue, he can reign unbound, because the deity let him.

While his saying this, President Museveni is trekking across the Luweero Triangle, where the National Resistance Army wasn’t an holy movement, neither a Godly organization, but a rebellious armed group trying to topple the government. So, that they could rule and after years in the bush with help of Libyans and others. They got the ability to topple the Military Council and let the previous masters loose power. Therefore, not so much prayers or God given mercy to give Museveni way.

Neither, has it been Godly or merciful, the years in power of this President. It has used the military and the army to control the public. He has helped invasions of Republic that shares borders with his dominion. President Museveni is a War-Lord, by his actions and his usage of supporting militias outside of his dominion. To ensure other people’s death, because you want to loot somewhere else. That isn’t so God fearing of him, neither is it respecting the ten commandments. But, we should know that about the man already.

With all of this, I feel it is Cult like saying this about a Head of State. That his God given power to rule over leaders. Museveni is closer to God and has the abilities he has, because of transcending powers given to him.

Rukutana might not see it this way, but his appointed by the man and is a cadre of Museveni. So, he says this as a sign of loyalty and as a token to his master. Everyone should challenge this sort of rhetoric. Since it only shows how they are trying to use spirituality over actual facts. While many will not question this, because they don’t won’t to offend the Gods. However, I feel this is belittling the Gods, as he has given us a mind and we should use that.

Let me end with a passage from the New International Version:

18 Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”[a]; 20 and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”[b] 21 So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas[c] or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God” (1 Corinthians 3, NIV).

Let me end with that. Peace.

Opinion: Rukutana MP as an Minister is another scandal in the making…

Mwesigwa Rukutana, the Rushenyi County MP since 2001, who now has gone from being the Deputy Attorney General to be appointed yesterday as the Minister of State for Labour, Employment and Industrial Relations. His been within the upper-echelon since the 1980s, as he was a Minister of Lands between 1986-88. Therefore, his a man whose served in various position during the era of National Resistance Movement (NRM). So, that his returning from the Office of the Attorney General isn’t shocking.

Rukutana was implicated in the CHOGM Money Scandal, Land Commission Scandal, Commissioning the “Presidential Handshake Report”, Green-lightening the “Coffee-Scandal” of Salim Selah and so-on.

Rukutana is one of the most corrupt gentlemen in the Cabinet now. He would be close to Amama Mbabazi of historically corrupt gentlemen. Surely, Jim Muhwezi, Sam Kuteesa and Salim Selah would be part of the top 10. But, Mwesigwa Rukutuna would join them. His now in-charge of labour and surely will find some ways to find kick-backs to pocket. If he doesn’t he isn’t real to himself nor his mission in life, which is to eat.

Now, even just months ago since he was kicked of a land probe after “misconduct”. And you know something is up with the guy too, when he advices the state not to Audit the Uganda Telecommunication Company (UTL).

Therefore, his something else, his an corrupt soul, who know has more power. Since, his gone from being the Deputy Attorney General to become a minister again. Surely, there will land scandals in the foreseeing future. As his been entangled in plenty and there are more to come.

We would be shocked if he wasn’t rocked by more scandals in the future, especially now that he hold yet another office in the Republic. Peace.

Opinion: The NRA Historicals acts like they are above the law

Let them (land probe) go to the president; I don’t care!” All ‘these things’, the government knows what happened. Let them go to the president, or God!” – Deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana

Surely this is the system of the President, that his loyal allies, the 26 Guns salute are allowed to whatever they feel like. The Entitlement of the National Resistance Amry, the now National Resistance Movement (NRM) Historicals and still vibrant politicians. They are allowed to grab land, be implicated in corruption scandals and even use force without any retaliation.

It is like they, the NRM Historicals are allowed to do whatever, that being Deputy AG Rukutana, Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi or now Gen. Kyaligonza, all of them can do whatever they want. The law will not really catch up to them. The likes of Muhwezi can squat on land and grab it, instead of loose it. He gets the army to cease the land that he occupies to then be delivered to him. That is how they operate. They can acts as overlords, because the President lets them.

Today, there are viral video of Kyaligonza out, on what ill acts the historical are doing in Mukono. As explained here. That the Uganda’s Ambassador to Burundi Gen. Matayo Kyaligonza and his security guards from the Uganda People’s Defence Force manhandled today a female Police Officer, as the Honourable lad took an illegal U-Turn in Seeta, Mukono.

Therefore, we are again seeing the mighty NRA soldiers and Generals are allowed to do as they please. The ushered in the Presidency and therefore, can act as they please. They can be above the law and do whatever they feel.

Like if an Opposition Member said what Rukutana said to Land Commission, they would have been in legal jeopardy, as no one should dare say that. Neither, if anyone else used the Security Guards like Gen. Kyaligonza this week. They would also played with fire. The same can be said if someone squatted on the land or grabbed it like Gen. Muhwezi is known to do.

They are just prime example, just like during the General Election and Campaigns before 2016, the now Minister Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafiire tried to embezzle and pay-off his competitor in the Election in his Constituency. However, there was no aftermath or even investigation. Even as the tape of the suggested pay-off was leaked online.

This is just what they are allowed to do and act, the Historicals can break the law, misuse their power and allegiance to the President. Therefore, they can act above the law and not get court-side or even see law enforce act against them. They are just walking like free birds. They can fly away without being touched.

That is the reality, today proves it again. The NRA/M Historicals can do what they please. There is nothing they cannot do. I am sure they could kill a beggar by the Square in Kampala and nothing would happen. Because, that is who they are and what role they play in society. They are allowed to act like this and the President let them. Because they helped him to power, therefore, he feels they should get special treatment since they are his allies and his weapon-brothers. Nevertheless, the public can feel like second class citizens, because they could never act like this and get away with it. Peace.
