Opinion: Museveni, Meal-Ticket Politicians is your “invention” …

Politics is working for the people, to get them out of poverty and solve their problems, not to escape poverty for your own self” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (10.09.2020)

That someone who has rebuilt and remade the political system, the one who has made the new constitution and signed off laws, which has commercialized politics. This being the price of party nominations and the price to pay for nomination forms to the Electoral Commission. Together with the hefty salaries, allowances and perks in-office. The ability to spend the fortunes comes with the opportunities of getting in office after paying back the fees to stand as a flag-bearer.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) and all their leaders have made this system. Ever since the Constitution of 1995 and the laws for elections that has been made with deliberate action. The NRM knows this and the President knows this too.

That’s why his a bit delusional when he says this:

The main reason why people are fighting hard to go to Parliament is because MPs increased their salary. They earn more than scientists and many other important people to our country. I tried telling them not to do it but they insisted. Now, people want to leave their other work to go to Parliament and earn much. Yet, their motivation should be to serve their people rather than earn from Parliament” (Museveni, 10.09.2020).

Because, the President knows about the rise of salaries and allowances within the Parliament and for the Representatives. The NRM have promoted this and made it more profitable to become an MP. They are getting suits, cars, salaries and allowances, which are really making people millionaires over night.

The President knows this very well. Museveni have made this all happen. While endorsing it and knowingly that the cronies have gotten the wealth. The men loyal to him would get a pay-off and kick-backs from the state. That is why the ideal to run for office isn’t all about the representation, but getting rich. This is not strange, as the MPs and candidates has to spend massive amount of money to able to get in office. That has to later be repaid … and therefore, the knowledge of the costs and the needs to get covered after the campaigns.

So, initially the President is saying the rights things, but his actions has made this system. That is why I am not so forgiving. He has promoted and built this regime. That has all benefited him and his associates. If it wasn’t so, this wouldn’t be like this. The whole system and policies have been enacted within the reach of this Presidency. This wasn’t relics of previous regimes, but his own.

President Museveni can be right, but is terribly wrong at the same time. If he was against it. Why didn’t he act upon it? Well, he wants loyal allies and the easiest way is to pay them off, instead of giving them credit. The President, if he didn’t want this to become like this. He wouldn’t have supported, helped and built the system up this way.

That’s why these statements made by him is hypocrisy… however, that is his M.O. these days. Sounds correct, but acts a fool. Hoping nobody catches his game. Peace.

Opinion: Is the DP dying since they cannot field candidates internally? [Mayoral Aspirant of Kampala]

As of today, the Democratic Party under Party President Norbert Mao has fielded an “independent” candidate on the DP ticket. This is happening for various of reasons. The DP as a party have lost vital members, leaders and lawmakers to other parties. The boat is leaking and there is no intent of stopping the leakage, apparently.

Mao has chosen a person who launched her own campaign back on the 22nd July 2020, Beatrice Kayanja to run as the DP Lord Mayoral Flag-bearer for Kampala in the 2021 General Elections. That is fine in itself. Her acumen as a businesswoman and entrepreneur speaks for herself. Her role as an activist for development and leading a conference to bring business to Uganda speaks for herself. Alas, Beatrice as the person isn’t the issue.

It is the supposed grassroot mobilisation. The party structure and the lack of potential new leaders, which should worry. As the man has dissolved the DP Block, the coalition ahead of the General Election. As it didn’t get the spark and the needed juice to become a TDA or IPC. It just became “hot-air” and got forgotten.

It must be a reason, why the party are picking out a person who has been vocal online and in social media. A person who has already retained her own aspiration for the Lord Mayor and would stand alone doing it. The DP must really be weak to do this. That they cannot find anyone of their members, inside the party and within the DP Kampala to stand as the Lord Mayor.

That is how it seems. Since, they we’re already pushing Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone as the Lord Mayor, but he ditched the party for NUP. Their previous and incumbent Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has gone to the FDC. Therefore, the two big-shots, the ones who has a big platform and would be recognized would not stand as the Flag-Bearer this time around.

The fallout of Chameleone must really hurt Mao. As he offered appointments and political capital to him before he went to NUP. It was just the ambition and the meal-ticket politician who left DP for NUP. That wasn’t shocking, but shows that even Mao’s offerings wasn’t that sweet. If it was, a man like Jose would stick around.

You can wonder, why does the oldest party of the Republic got to pick a random candidate of their own? If their was picking outside their own party, why not start negotiations with Nabilah Naggay Sempala, the Woman MP for Kampala? She cannot stand as MP and have been blocked from the FDC. She has a name and is well-known, why go for Beatrice?

That is why the DP is weak. The decisions seems to be short-sighted at best. Yes, it is better to field someone like Sempala MP. If they are believing in the race and wants to invest in it. Use a familiar face and re-issue her as a priced deflector. That would be a bet and show some political game. Not that Sempala MP has any positive reputation and is another one of those who does what it takes during campaigning, but is never seen after the elections. Still, she would have some character into the mix. Not sure what Kayanja will do…

It only shows that the DP doesn’t trust their own and doesn’t promote their own. At least not to the positions that counts. The ones with prestige and honour. There they need the names, the shiny diamonds and the ones who can spark interest. Instead, of considering using own machinery and vet their own. It might have failed in the first run, maybe even in the second. But, when a man or woman campaigns enough and proves their pedigree to the public. They could easily get elected, as they know this activist and this politician isn’t all talk, but actual game too…

Mao seems to have forgotten that and wants to do the quick fix. His fielding someone new. Someone who hasn’t the grand stand, his fielding an “independent” as his own and apparently deliberately so. He has picked a quick fix, gotten Kayanja’s blessing and a agreement to make it happen. Before they did launch it and now made it official. Still, it’s more a gain for Kayanja, than it is for DP. It just makes DP look weak and lack of internal candidates to back-up the needs of the party. Since, they had to pick someone from the outside again to be fielded.

It was first Jose and now Beatrice. Who knows how they fix others, but this is surely not from a place of strength, but of weakness. Peace.

Kampala Lord Mayor Race: Is DP’s Kayanja a wild-card?

Now, the Democratic Party have finally fielded a candidate to become Lord Mayor of Kampala. This being Beatrice Kayanja, a businesswoman who has resided in the United Kingdom and visited the farms of the President in the past. She is now the one taking over for Erias Lukwago on the DP Ticket.

That happens after Jose Chameleone is running on the National Unity Platform (NUP) for Lord Mayor of Kampala. He was previously the DP candidate for this slot, but he moved to NUP instead of DP. That is why the DP needed to find someone else.

As well, as Erias Lukwago officially entered the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and will be for the first time running for the Lord Mayor on this ticket. While Nabilah Nagayi Ssempala MP, the former Kampala Woman MP for the FDC is running in the same race.

While the NRM might field Ragga Dee again or former Lord Mayor Nasser Ntege Ssebagala. The race is already heavy packed and with Kayanja. Will it make a difference? Has the DP found a successor?

Because, Lord Mayor Lukwago is the incumbent and a respected leader in Kampala. He has a standing and you need to be special to beat him there. That is why the DP needed something refreshing and new to pick up the ante.

This is why they wanted first Chameleone, but he ditched them. Even as he was appointed mobilizer for the DP, but still wasn’t seeing enough options there. That is why he fled to the NUP and has bigger hope for his candidacy there.

While Lukwago was lost… he had already moved on and only made it officially. That is why the Independent Running candidate Kayanja could become a DP Flag-bearer. She officially started her campaign in July, but is announced in September. Meaning she has been campaigning and building up her team for months before Mao rubber-stamps her.

That is why its a race with many characters, but the voters and the public has to see who they will trust. The DP is for the ones who are willing. The FDC got a winner, the NRM might field former losers or even stalwarts of the party. Because, the opposition has a stronghold of the capital. That is why the President has disrespected the leadership there for so long.

Kayanja is a wild-card. Do I believe she will win? No, but she is a fresher in this field. She has to make herself relevant in the eyes of the nation and in the capital. The DP have captured someone who has already started and can build on that. However, they are also showing that they didn’t have any internal candidates to field. As they just snapped and communicated with an “independent” to make them officially part of the team. That should worry the ones who are behind the DP banner.

Enough for today. Still a long time to the polls. Peace.

NRM Primaries: Mzee’s defence is surreal… Part II

Yesterday, the first defence of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Primary Elections of 2020 came out. Today, the second edition came out. Now, he has to drop the skulls of the Luweero Triangle to warn people standing in his way. Even if the whole NRM is filled with his vision and his party culture. If it is like it is, it’s because the man has created this monster and he runs it. This is what his liberation party have become too. As the power corrupts and destroys. It even does it to its own.

He defends the lining behind candidates for stopping election rigging, however that hasn’t been the case. The President continues with the village scenario, even if the cattle corridor with the men of power and close association with you are the ones behind the worst violence. You don’t name-drop them, and the open bribery of the big-men. They are not looked after, but only for political brownie-points.

That is why you wrote this:

However, I want, for now, to repeat a few points. By going back to lining behind candidates, the NRM laid a good trap for the cheaters (the riggers). The voting is done and concluded in each village and the scores are witnessed by hundreds of People. It is shallow criminality to think that you can enter false numbers on a piece of paper known as DR form and that that will give you the flag. You will end in prison for forgery and subversion instead of Parliament. An audit of village by village will expose you. The villages have not shifted. They are still there. Even if you bribe the agents of the victim candidate to tell lies, the People who voted are there. They will bring out the facts” (Museveni, 08.09.2020).

The NRM knows this and the President knows this. It wasn’t a trap, it wasn’t a trick, but a cheap way of using old methods of voting. As the school-yard picking captain for a team is the way your picking leaders, lawmakers and MPs. That shows how the lack of secret ballots and voting. Because, the art-of-peer pressure is the thing of the 2020 apparently.

In the age of social distancing, the President calls this a trap for cheaters. They could all stand in line, but the numbers could still be rigged. Who knows how many who stood in line at any given time? There is no proof? Only talk and rumours after the fact? If the ones counting them switched the amount and even miscounted.

That is why its really rich to defend it like that. Use these means… and being proud of re-using methods that the NRM was supposed to stop and ensure more credible elections. Alas, the NRM uses the means of the parties, which it was supposed liberate from. The rigging, bribery and untrustworthy elections is the reason for the existence of the NRA/NRM and the loss of lives in the Luweero Triangle. However, these lives are now used to defend the same tactics and same means as the ones he opposed back-in-the-day.

That is why this defence script part II is surreal. He is defending the same reasons for what brought him to the bush. He is running similar operation to the ones he went to war for. That is why the grievances within his party is even more richer. The use of all means to get ahead. The mentality and the party culture cultivated by this man. The man who was supposed to bring a fundamental change.

That change is apparently more of the same. The same greed, the same addiction of power and misuse of it.

The President can promise the right things, say the right things, but as long as he promotes the wrong ones. It doesn’t make it true or make sense. If he didn’t use these means himself and techniques, he wouldn’t be ahead himself. He isn’t in office because of love, but for the power of the gun. Peace.

Uganda Peoples Congress (UPC): Court Appeal Judgement Overtaken by Events (08.09.2020)

OTT Madness Part II: A Crackdown on Online Publications…

Yesterday, the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) issued a statement that they would need to obtain persons who are operating online and publishing content online. That is not only blogs, but video and media in general. This is if you are on social media or just a blogger. Everyone in the Republic must be authorized and registered as such to be regulated by the UCC.

This is happening in the short span of the Over-The-Top Taxes, the Social Media Tax, the 200 shillings of doom. The state continues their crackdown and wanting to monitor and control the publications, the content online. This is a deliberate effort to know about who is behind the online media and who is posting online content.

That is happening, while the state combined with their institutions are gearing up for a “Scientific” election in 2021. As the campaigns, the electorate and the political operatives must use either online outlets or print media. If not broadcasting either on-air og on television.

So, it’s not shocking that the UCC does this. Just like it did the Sim-Registration drive as well. They are suddenly acting swift in the name of the authorities to ensure they can have access and control of a certain part of the public space.

It is just interesting that they need this now. Just as the Electoral Commission and everyone else is gearing up for the various of flag-bearers and candidates. That they need to access these places, knowing about the news publications on Facebook, the ones dropping teasers on Instagram and the verified accounts on Twitter. Because, that is suddenly important now. So, they can deem your ass fit or not.

They will likely try to crash down on the media houses, the outlets and the publications who are deliberately spreading bad news for the regime. The ones who like TVO style and hurt the pride of Muhoozi and Bosco. That is just life, I suppose and how narrow minded the regime is at this point.

The OTT Tax and Social Media Tax is just a proof of how far the state will go. That is already limiting the space online and the amount of content. With this, the people will be even more limited and the ones who has their own platforms and uses it. Has to register and maybe will be revoked. Even if they have paid a third-party, have agreements and payment-plans for their operations. Still, the UCC can and will stop you from doing so.

The state has pushed for digital and online campaigns, but these sorts of actions speaks another tone. Seemingly, the only one allowed in the end is the “NRM Friendly Press” and “Associates of the Online Brigade”. The NRM SOMA and outreaches of Uganda Media Centre are allowed to operate, the ones like Ashburg and other content creators. While the rest are blocked or lost their privileges by the state. I don’t believe the UCC does this to be kind and keep a registry for “fun”. No, this is not that sort of business and the UCC isn’t a friendly uncle, but a tool for limiting the freedom of expression.

The ones who differs, be your guest, but don’t be shocked if someone loses their livelihoods and their platform. Because, they are voices of dissidents and the opposition. The ones who dares to speak against the President and his Party. They are all under fire by this. The NRM operatives will move along and get even more space. However, the others will be in trouble…

This is a crackdown; we just don’t know to what extent. The UCC will claim and say otherwise, but we all know the drill. Peace.

 

NRM Primaries: Mzee’s defence is surreal…

After the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Primaries was held recently. The President has celebrated the results and he winners. Alas, his been silent and looking over the ones rigging, fixing and bribing themselves to a position in the General Election in 2021. However, that is steady progress in the eyes of NRM.

That the President now promises less violence, rigging and issues within the Primaries is what he does. He condemns on the one hand, but he grows the impunity with the other. He speaks of peace, but sponsors war. That is the sort of fella the President is. It is just like he doesn’t think people knows.

That is why I won’t dwell on the history lesson or his contextualization of the Primaries. As he wants to bring history into the game. While not looking into how his NRA Historicals, the entitlement and the rich NRM high ranking officials and their families who are causing rift. The NRM knows this… the violence and the rigging is made by the ones who are close associated or been high ranking officials. Not just random blokes from the suburbs of Kampala or hooligans from the border towns. No, its been people with money and power. Still, the man never addressed that. Because, that get to close to home.

That’s why I only take this paragraph from his piece of defence of the NRM Primaries:

The NRM elections are village based. They should begin in the village and end in the village. Once the counting is done in the village, the elections are over. The rest is adding. It will, therefore, not help anybody to mis–add because the original village generated numbers are there and the People who are aware of these numbers are many. Any other shallow schemes like moving voters on Lorries from village to village are easy to unearth. Those are all crimes for which the perpetrators will be answerable criminally. This, therefore, maybe the tail end of cheating in the NRM. Even the victims of these schemes should be steady. Just get facts from your village agents (truthful facts); the crooks are wasting their time and ours” (Museveni, 07.09.2020).

Therefore, it is easy defence of the man. He wants to make some men criminalized, but not mention the ones who are behind it all. Because, they didn’t do this election rigging and election violence in a vacuum, but in a fashion that the President knows.

He can act like he can solve all this and resolve the matter easily. Come with some new solutions to iron the things out. However, the reasons why the NRM Primaries are the way they are… is both because of the commercialization of the position and the “winner takes all and eats all”. They are making it a “do or die”.

When you have made system where the victory means so much. As the NRM controls the state, the Electoral Commission and society in general. The NRM knows this and the ones running for knows this too. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t spend, risk and act like they do.

That the President tries to deflect and use this rhetoric isn’t shocking He needs to prove progress, but also say he condemns certain aspects. The NRM is in the image of the President and the way he has envisioned it. They are following him and he cannot run away from it. Even if he tries like he did today. The NRM Primaries wouldn’t be like this, if the big-men and the ones in power wouldn’t benefit from it.

That is just the mere reality. If you didn’t need to bang for you bucks, you wouldn’t bang at all. You would just continue … Museveni knows this, but instead trying to move the goal-post. Instead of fixing the party culture, which he has cultivated and now trying to stop. This a party who is mirrored through him and he cannot deflect that. Even if he tries.

We know, he knows and here we are. The NRM stays the NRM. Peace.

Opinion: Bobi Wine retaliated with swagger against Mzee [and I will look into ‘Point 3. We Kill Our Supporters in Order to Blame Government’]

Today, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine dropped an articulated response. A 7 point piece not only defending himself, but addressing the matters of responses to the blogging and retorts made by the President. Which has been directed both at fellow cadre Francis Zaake, but also on hot topics. Which I have addressed on my page.

I will today look on a ridiculous claim by the President, which Bobi Wine addresses with sense. He retorts in a manner more people should do. He is going straight to the heart. Not sure, the President is used to this. He should be though, because with age and his history lessons. The man should know that everyone isn’t eating of his hands anymore. Only his paid-off cronies and token friends are doing so. The rest fears the army and the law enforcement. They don’t want to be violated for being civilians and possible dissidents.

So, I will take the vital pieces of the Point 3 from Bobi Wine’s piece and then discuss it underneath. Something I have done several of times with Mzee and now it’s Bobi Wine’s turn.

There are always low moments in every politician’s career, but it is regrettable that the man who presides over our country has no limits on how low he can descend. I wonder how you sleep soundly at night! I wonder how you can extra-judicially kill our people, and then turn up with a straight face blaming their death on the glorious forces of change” (Bobi Wine, 06.09.2020).

This is really showing no remorse and he shouldn’t either. The way he address it is really unleashing a disgust, as the liberator turned tormentor is using the death of oppositions as a tool and dancing on their graves. The President continues to claim he came with fundamental change, but the pattern of actions from the government isn’t so. The government still kill civilians without consequences and this from a government that was supposed to liberate from similar past governments. This is why the usage of them in the manner the President is disgusting and horrific. Instead of getting justice for their lives, he betrays them even in their deaths. Because that saves his cause, which is to stay in power.

Now General Museveni is telling the nation that we have killed all these people in order to put the blame on his regime of blood and national shame! We are told by scripture that God does not sleep nor slumber. The blood of these innocent brothers and sisters cries from the ground. One day, they will get justice. When your friend Omar el-Bashir was butchering the people of Darfur, (the very same way you butchered our people in Northern Uganda, Kasese, etc), he thought of himself as all powerful and invincible. Today, he must be wondering what went wrong. The arm of justice may take so long, but it eventually catches up with those who commit atrocities and think of themselves as too wise and highly exalted. To draw the parallels for your ease of reference, only in April 2015, Omar el-Bashir had organized a sham election, in which his own version of Byabakama awarded him a sweeping 94.05% of the vote. Today, he is in a cold cage, perhaps wishing he had read the signs. I don’t want to remind you of your other friends Gaddafi, Mubarak, Mugabe, Campoare and the rest. Rest assured, you will end up on the dustbin of history, like all those who came before you. The tragedy is that no dictator ever learns from the fate of the other!” (Bobi Wine, 06.09.2020).

This here is a stern warning, a warning that Bobi Wine will say in vein. A person and a ego like Museveni will not listen to him. People warned that he would be a President for Life before the abolishment of Term Limits. Still, the man promised to retire. This man only listens to himself. Even if the warning is poignant and justified. Bobi Wine speaks the voice of the ones the hurt, killed and detained for the cause. He really does here and also shows what has happen to others who has reigned like Museveni did. Their legacy, their reign and their power, when it ends. All their glory, all their bullets and everything will be lost.

Yes, in the moment of power, in the hour of strength, a man like Bobi Wine isn’t dangerous for a man like Museveni. However, when the pendulum turns. The time is up and someone’s else’s turn. Then Museveni has to pray for mercy for his ills. The actions made and the enemies created. He has to beg them for salvation and mercy from his fate. He put through punishment, atrocities and misuse of power. That is all ills he needs to answer for.

That Museveni doesn’t learn from that. Only shows how the power corrupt. This man knows, he knew the ills of the continent and the problems of Africa. Still, he repeats them, uses them and trust upon the same thing towards the ones he is proud to have overthrown like Mobutu and Habyarimana.

Museveni knows all of this, but still uses this rhetoric against People Power and the National Unity Platform. That is the sort of man Museveni. A man who knows, but ignores this knowledge. Because, it isn’t beneficial and keeps him in power. Also, enrich his family and his associates. Bobi Wine is speaking the truth, but it will only be heard by the choir. It will not be approved by the men and woman who needs it the most. The ones who is eating of the plate of the President. Peace.

Opinion: Baffled that VP Ssekandi won his race…

If there was one National Resistance Movement (NRM) Candidate for Member of Parliament (MP) that I would thought would cease to exist, it would be current day Vice President Edward Ssekandi. Who was running for another term in Bukoto Central County in Greater Masaka.

So, to know that he again get a chance to run in a General Election in 2021. A man who has been an MP since 1996. His been the VP since 2011 and this would continue as long as he got ambition to succeed the President. By all his actions and his way of being in the wind. The VP is secured and can eat like crazy.

VP Ssekandi is a ghost and irrelevant. Still, he was able to get recognition in his constituency. This is why its weird that nobody else would win over him. Someone who would go door-to-door over the years. Steady campaign and be recognized.

Everyone knows that VP Ssekandi exists. No one can state what he has done or delivered. Ssekandi is just a mirage, someone behind the scenes who happens to appear every blue moon.

That’s why its weird that he even get voters behind him. VP Ssekandi might be able to shake a few hands and say a few words at a burial. Nevertheless, his not a great lawmaker, neither is he a representative for change.

VP Ssekandi is the one who doesn’t make a fuzz, doesn’t make a difference and doesn’t even utter a public word. Unless, it is a tribute and a speech for the deceased. The Bukoto Central has initially given way to another public speaker to officiate events. Yes, his not won it yet, but don’t expect shock in the up-coming elections in 2021.

This man will win there too. If his on it, because he knows his the VP for the President for Life. The one who has no ambition and only serves his master. The VP for the bad days and for the glorious occasions. However, he will never be there to say anything to rock the boat. Neither, will he cause any controversy or even issue a statement on a scandal.

This man is the true testament to live ghosts. The silent whisperer and the one haunts the VP position.

Ssekandi is like an eidolon or a poltergeist, even if he is a real person. Because, he is usually not seen or in public. Even if he is a high ranking government official and a MP.

It is hard to think he is a mortal, but immortal instead. A supernatural person, who gets re-elected and continues to be spirit flying over the Republic. For some reason, the state, the party sees him as useful.

That’s why he “wins” elections. Because, it cannot be for his charismatic persona or his track-record. Because, anyone who has made a motion, petition or even an article in New Vision has done more than this man. 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.
