Opinion: Bobi Wine needs figure out his own way, don’t copy Mzee!

“It should be known that Uganda is not short of amazing policies. We have had very many propositions that have been very well-researched intelligently thought through and presented. However, because of the rampant corruption, and the lack of the rule of law, none of them have been implemented. Our policy is implementation, even if we implemented the 10-point programme that Museveni was singing 33 years ago, we would be ahead” (…) “Yes, we have had very many programmes, the Vision 2040, and many others, that have been presented and shelved. They are not implemented because of the rampant corruption. And most of the corruption scandals are traced back to the President’s Office, to his family members and cronies. So, our main target is implementing the policies and programmes that have been suggested in the past” – Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine in an Interview 15th June 2019 (Paul Murungi – ‘Uganda: I Will Implement Museveni’s 10-Point Programme – Bobi Wine’ 15.06.2019).

I don’t know if Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine sees it or not, but these sorts of statements make him less like a viable character and less of change of guards. What difference is it between him and Museveni? That is if you are planning to follow the guidelines and the programmes, made in the past.

Why do I say this?

Well, if a man is supposed to challenge someone and show finesse. As a musician, you don’t bite another man’s lyrics, bite his beats and his stage persona. No, you make your own lyrics, your own rhythm and beat the crap of the others on stage. However, Bobi Wine is biting and copying Museveni without any consideration.

This is disappointing. Not that the 10-Point Programme wasn’t a fine paper. Not that the Magna Carta wasn’t a fine paper, the 1995 Constitution was commendable. Still, the new leader post-Museveni should find his own way and secure the future. Not use the techniques of the old. Bobi Wine should be different, if he want to be a positive change. Not just, photocopy and hope people spot the difference.

Let’s get serious, will Bobi Wine consider taking the programme of Uganda Patriotic Movement too? While he is at it? Because now he seems positive to the government own programmes and what sort of framework they have put out. Even if none of these is implemented as per say, shouldn’t he at least come with some significant policy of change?

This is showing a lack character and lack of progress, when your copying the talisman of old. When your not configuring the future and thinking on your own, but just biting off the former heads. If he wants to be different than Museveni, why take his mojo? If he wants to be seen as progressive and a fighter against the junta, why take their old plans and revitalize them?

It just doesn’t make sense. Not to me at least and I want to see change, but by following the policies and guidelines of Museveni. There will be none. It will be more of the same and just more reckless behaviour. Not less of it. Therefore, to think of making the 10-Point Programme viable again. Maybe, just maybe.

Bobi Wine should try to formulate his difference strategy, his sort of plan of a transition and his arrangements for a better governance without Museveni. Because, at this very moment, I don’t see it. Other than a naked populist without a touch of grace, even Besigye has a own plan and wording on how he see the next steps. He is not copying anyone. This is what Bobi Wine needs to do as well.

Bang out a few hits, find the formula and spread the news. Not copy. That is sloppy. Peace.

Joint Press Release: WHO Director General Visits Uganda to Assess Ebola Response (17.06.2019)

Another day, another Bank of Uganda Scandal!

The Bank of Uganda has had their magical pens, they have had their crazy foreclosure of Commerical Banks and now they are procuring and producing banknotes without proper function of the state. This is inside trading and kleptocracy to another level.

The Bank of Uganda is already showing their acts, as they didn’t minutes to closure of a bank and not even following protocol doing that. In the same regard, surely there was no minutes written when the high ranking officials fixed and gotten specialized transport plane filled with billions of Ugandan shillings in freshly minted banknotes.

We know this is a game been missing and sudden death is coming quickly. Because this is a rotten institution to the core. There been proof over a long time, but with every scandal, there are meat to the bone. It is ready for a stew or barbecue.

This bank has been like this under the Presidency, ever since the cross-over of the double digits in 1987 and cut of 30% for the clients using it. This is how they do. The Bank of Uganda is the reserves and the securities for the regime. They do not care how they clear their tab, but the bank will fix it.

If the public cannot trust the inner-circle of the Bank. Who can trust it? Since the BoU is supposed to be the institution that ensures the currency and the economy together with the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development (MoFPED). They are supposed to deliver what the state needs and secure the economy together. These two institutions are supposed to be the bricks to secure the foundation. Instead, we are questioning one, that breaks down the bridge of trust. So, there is no possibility of crossing that river.

The Bank of Uganda has again come into trouble. Not that its shocking, been a minute where the bank was off the hook. But now the state is trying to fix it without arresting the ones doing the illegal deeds. Surely, these people will be off the hook and off the books, just like their mission was supposed to be. For some reason, the state want to reveal it and surely to embarrass someone behind it. Don’t expect them to spend time behind bars, because these people are connected with the kitchen cabinet and the high above. Since, if the BoU was really in trouble, they wouldn’t have gotten away with their previously done deeds. Therefore, there is more behind closed doors, than what we know.

The Bank of Uganda is in another scandal. It is not strange. Its anticipated, this bank is made to the fortunate and the ones in the inner-circle. The rest just got to beg for mercy. As long as this regime is in power. This will not change, because this not profitable. But as long as it is… it will keep up and the leadership will continue. Since, the President trust them and knows they are carrying water for him. They are getting a cut for doing it too, as long as they are not telling the public.

That is why this latest is a leaked story to get rid of a inner-circle dude, who the leadership doesn’t like or trust. They feel he cannot be one of them and need him to humiliated. The President knows this, the Speaker knows this and the Parliament knows this too. However, they will not say it.

The Bank of Uganda is rocked by another scandal and its not shocking. What it was that it wasn’t bigger and more people getting a cut. It should have been more of the big-men connected with a piece of the trade-off. Because, they didn’t get it. They had to blow the whistle, then it wasn’t acceptable. Peace.

Uganda Police Force: Police Statement on Armed Criminal Gang (15.06.2019)

King Mumbere in Exile gets 14 days to visit his Kingdom just to bury his mother

Ever since November 2016, the Kasese killings, the fire of the Buhikira Royal Palace and the killings of several of the Rwenzururu Kingdoms Royal Guards by the Special Force Command and the Flying Squad. Ever since then, the Obusinga bwa Rwenzururu Charles Wesley Mumbere and 190 Royals Guards have awaited trial and sentencing.

Still, to this day, as the charges of terrorism and since January 2017 after a bail hearing, been living in exile in Kampala with restricted movement and conditions awaiting trial. Now for the last few days after his mother passing in Kasese. He had to go to trial to be allowed to enter his own Kingdom and be back in Kasese district, where the Kingdom of Rwenzururu reside. However, it’s been granted today. Nevertheless, we have seen how court orders have given way, but the Police have re-arrested a person on the fly a minute after.

This Court Order will not stop the Court Ship, nor the legal trouble of the King. Even as the state has promoted the leaders and commanders within the army, who attacked this kingdom and killed his kin. That is the sort of the leadership that is in Kampala these days, maybe some have forgotten that, but Gen. Elewu have gotten a raise and more responsibility after the acts done that in Kasese.

The Exiled King would only get a brief 14 days to visit his Kingdom, act ceremonial and bury his mother. The rest is going back to Kampala and living as a man charged with terrorism, but no pending trial nor proof of discovery on the matter. Therefore, his case is prolonged and his future is uncertain. As he lives in Buganda Kingdom, waiting to be allowed to rebuild and run his ceremonial kingdom in Kasese. This is the sort of nation the NRM has created.

The Exiled King will stay exiled for now. Not like if he returns and will get to stay. The President, the Special Force Command nor the leadership in Kampala is interested in that. They want to keep him away. That is what it seems, since they have not pinned him to the cross and they don’t want him to pay for their sins.

If they did, they would have done it already and figured out a way to cleans the hands of blood from their own. Peace.

BoU Scandal: Speaker Rebecca Kadaga letter to PAC-Cosase Chairman on “Re: Re-opening the Investigation into the Bank of Uganda Closure of Commercial Banks by the Committee on Commissions State Authorities and State Enterprises” (10.06.2019)

[A Memo] The NRM will never accept Bobi Wine!

If you didn’t the get the memo.

You can get it now.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM), President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and all his comrades will never ever accept Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. They will never ever take him in or give him way.

President Museveni called him in the midst of a speech today “indisciplined” and Muhammad Nsereko said he couldn’t other things than his family. Both of them is part of the Junta and the regime itself. They are just not as fabulously worded as Tamale Mirundi and Andrew Mwenda. Still, the same sort of affair and wording is there.

The President and the NRM will never ever open up the door for a Bobi Wine. Just like it never opened the door for Dr. Kizza Besigye. They have used the same words and opinions against him. This is recycled propaganda and rhetoric aimed at another political advisory. Now its Bobi Wine. His is in the spotlight and is the bird that is shoot down.

The bus isn’t letting anyone who isn’t anointed by His Excellency. The chairman and the Executive is now disbarring him. Just like he and his allies has done in the past. It doesn’t matter if Bobi Wine would speak of genuine dialogue and actual peaceful change. The President doesn’t want to step down and he expects blind loyalty like from the people. That is why the MP and artist is indisciplined.

We know that the ones defying and actually resisting the general of the Resistance Movement gets into trouble and get all kind of names. Right now that is Bobi Wine, he just happening to be the guy who stand on a mantle, just like Besigye have done and does. Therefore, his not the cadre or the minion that the President wants. Peace.

Ministry of Health: Update on Ebola Outbreak in Kasese District (13.06.2019)

New details in the UN Experts Report: On the Illegal Gold Export from Butembo to Uganda!

This is now more than known, that the Gold Refinery in Entebbe is a source of gold from Democratic Republic of Congo. Where the illicit gold export persists. This is a problem, where the state are not able to catch and the wealthy traders in Butembo/Bukavu bribe the local government associates. This here is showing how the President of Uganda and his family is involved in the illegal trading of gold. As the African Gold Refinery, which the First Family is owning is involved in. They are not transparent and for the reason, that the state doesn’t want to take responsibility for this trade.

“Several sources associated with gold trade told the Group that wealthy traders in Butembo and Bukavu or buyers in transit countries and Dubai financed the smugglers, enabling them to buy gold and transport it to foreign markets. Two sources directly involved in such transactions with gold traders based in Butembo told the Group that traders with no affiliation with the gold trade lent money to their bosses. The latter used the money in order to buy gold in Butembo. Traders who lent money were paid back in cash, either in Kampala or in Dubai, by those who received gold. The Group believes that circumventing the banking system through gold-based financial transactions generates a lack of transparency and violates the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force as reflected in Congolese legislation” (Final report of the Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo, P: 35-36, 2019).

“Uganda declared gold exports of 12,000 kg, but the United Arab Emirates said that it had received 21,044 kg of gold from Uganda” (…) “The Group noted that, at the time of writing, the authorities of Uganda had failed to send the Group the report of their investigations into the activities of Kampala-based gold traders, as officials had promised. On 16 January 2019, the Group met with representatives of African Gold Refinery Ltd. (AGR) at AGR premises in Entebbe, Uganda, and discussed in particular the fact that AGR had yet to provide the names of its suppliers to the Group” (Final report of the Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo, P: 36, 2019).

This is just verified reports from the United Nations Experts, whose investigated it. They have digging deeper. The Report is continuing to show how the state is benefiting of the illegal trade, as long as the Democratic Republic of Congo is missing it. They are being looted by illegal logging, trading, smuggling and not doing due diligence of the mineral resources produced there.

The Ugandan authorities doesn’t care that this is stolen and not verified, as the refinery is showing that they are not caring about the production or the proper protocol of the mineral production, as long as they are profiting from the illicit trade. This is the moral of the story, as the elites of Kampala are eating of the illegal trade. They are doing this and continuing to do so. Peace.
