“Karuma dam is going to produce electricity that is four times that of Jinja. These are things the media should focus on and not trivia” – President Museveni.
There is movement on the Karuma and Isma Dam. Now are the two letters that are clarifying the situation and the works of the dam. I have said one or two words about it before. But I prefer that the letters says it all and express what is needed. This here is yet again a public fueled funding into a massive construction and energy project to prove the ability of the NRM to do something for the state.
Here is the first letter:
Here is the second letter:
Also this one – Energy Officials Ignores Warning on Karuama and Isma Dams, Written on 4th April 2016:
Energy Infratech, the company said to be responsible for supervising works at the plants says that they have written over 1000 letters about shoddy work being done and the ministry officials seem to be giving a deaf ear, according to Mr.Velusamy Vasu, the Chief Executive officer.
ISO chief, Mr.Balya managed to commission a team to follow up the non compliance and they gave the report to President M7 who reffered the matter back to the Ministry. According to sources from ISO, they found out that the consultant kept raising the red flag to the contractor but Ministry officials kept covering up Sinohydro, and they suspect that they are shy bse there must have been money which crossed hands.
Should the work go on, we are likely to see a scenario wen Gilgel Gibe 111 dam high roller compacted concrete dam in Ethiopia and critical water passage tunnel collapsed. Should the works stop,there might be high litigation costs and tax payers money will be wasted. Ugandans will also suffer with low capacity of power since our target was 600MW frm Karuma and 183MW frm of Isimba.
We shall also experience constant repairs and faults in the plants. As youth leaders of this country for example Youth League, National Youth Council, what is you input? What is your role? This is a youth project of which you should be fighting for. Why wait for the old generation to plan for your future?
Youth power Research will be carrying out independent audits to all govnt projects and we shall always be giving our findings to the President’s office, Youth Ministry and other relevant stakeholders for action.

My short take on it:
I think that is enough about it for now. Peace.
We hereby inform the general public and all the poor Youth fraternity in Uganda that we have rebranded from NRM Poor Youth Forum to “Uganda Poor Youth Movement” to continue mobilizing and organizing the poor youth to oppose President Museveni dictatorial Rule which has made almost all youth poor and unemployed.
The Uganda Poor Youth Movement is a mass protracted poor youth Liberation movement operating at village level in all parts of Uganda to oppose Museveni Tyrannical Rule and we are finalizing a one year process of constituting 100 Poor Youth committee per village which started last year and it will oversee poor youth mobilization and development in every village of Uganda. We are much focused on development and organizing the Youth to demand for there rights.
The Uganda Poor Youth Movement will represent the interests of the poor youth of Uganda from time to time because many constitutional youth groups have neglected them such as the Natinal Youth Council; the NRM Youth League is only for the sons and daughters of the rich and government officials.
In February 2014, the NRM POOR YOUTH FORUM was founded to among others fight for internal democracy in NRM Party, we officially resolved to support the then prime minister Amama Mbabazi for president of Uganda 2016, we categorically challenged the Kangaroo resolution of NRM Parliamentary caucus which sat in kyankwanzi and declared president M7 a sole candidate in NRM and NRM Party chairman without election.
We have since mobilized the people of Uganda to oppose M7 and his dictatorial rule, we have mobilized the people of Uganda to support Hon Amama Mbabazi for president of Uganda 2016, etc.
We have decided to rebrand and expand our scope to involve both the peasants, the middle class, the un-employed and working class of Uganda to lead a protracted struggle against president M7 and his dictatorial regime. This is not our struggle but a struggle for the common good of the people of Uganda and the generations to come. If we don’t act now to defeat president M7, then our country will trek towards anarchy and instability.
Mr. M7 has over stayed as a president and he has indeed championed sectarianism, racism, favouritism, corruption, etc in both NRM Party and in the Government.
President Museveni has presided over a government with no institutions effectively functioning, he has led a country where patronage rule, he has led a country where poverty is now a culture and part of Ugandans, he has led a country where unemployment is now a disease with no medicine, he has led a country where rule of law is only in papers, he has led a country where external debt burden is now cursing all the common people, he has led a country where his family rule is visible, he has led a nation where poor service delivery is a norm and where corruption is an extension of the wishes and will of M7 the man. He has led a country where youth leaders and political leaders are used and dumped by M7 and members of his inner circle, he has led a country where all intellectuals are now beggars and puppets of Museveni and his henchmen.
Our country is indeed in political limbo; our country is sitting on a time bomb.
M7 has led a country where we are not sure of peace tomorrow or after him; he has led a country in which Ugandans are not sure of life if M7 die of a natural death today.
Our determination and will is clear. We must mobilise and unite all Ugandans to support the poor youth led protracted peaceful liberation struggle that will bring an end to M7 Social-economical reign of terror and hence total liberation of Uganda in 2016.
In Executing our Aspirations, we are shall focus more on the objectives below.
• To Mobilize and Organize Youth for Final Liberation of Uganda from Dictatorship
• To Mobilize and Organize Youth for sustainable Peace and Development
• To Mobilize and Organize Youth to demand for Equal Opportunities

• To operate a global social media campaign to create Global Awareness on Museveni dictatorial rule
• To mobilise and organize youth to fight Corruption in Public Service

In the coming few days, we shall publish our “The Ideology of Uganda Poor Youth Movement” and Our Poor Youth Brigade which will focus more on Mobilization for development and safe guarding our votes on 18th February 2016.
Special thanks to Rt Hon Amama Mbabazi, Rtd Col Dr Kiiza Besigye and the development partners within and outside Uganda for all your contributions towards liberation of Uganda.
