“Besigye reacted to the dismissal of Mbabazi’s petition saying he has been under house arrest since election day and was not able to file his petition” (NTV Uganda, 2016)
Mzee had today a Press Conference at the Masindi State Lodge in between campaign rallies. He has had issues with the press recently and this here is the memorable quotes from it!
The memorable quote worth taking from Today’s Press Conference:
“Is it not abuse of power to go in public and talk about something you don’t know?” Mzee continued saying this: “Daily Monitor is also bad paper. Some of these groups like Monitor and NTV don’t know there is a God. They just tell lies. They think that they are the end of the world but God is there looking. You wait. NTV is bad television. NTV is an enemy television”. He continued to say this at the press conference:“Have I wasted my two hours talking since I have not bribed you? Will you air this program?” Also said: “Why do you publish naked women? Why don’t you publish the wealth creation message?”
Mzee doesn’t have it easy lately especially how he looks like a coward after not participating in the debate. A debate for schoolchildren where the other Presidential Candidates was speaking on live TV and discussing governmental matters; that is abuse Mzee that is democratic development where you try to find solutions and explain how they would run their government. As you did in 1980 as a UPM leader and failed. I am sure Milton Obote didn’t call out foul for how he was addressing the papers and radios at that present time. When you did go to the bush, didn’t really know how to run the government because you had run it for a hot minute and been part of Obote’s second term in charge. But is just me right?
Well, this here is pre-bush-war and liberation struggle of President Museveni. Who did what he had to do to reach power. He can’t help himself. Then he has be pastoral again, be preachy as Pentecostal pastor as God being mixed into the freedom of the press and the free speech scenario. NTV and Daily Monitor is now bad paper and telling lies. If so, why does New Vision come with the same poll 5 years apart mister Mzee?
His Excellency is proclaiming they are so bad that their bringing back the end of the world with their reporting. That is what he is initially saying to the other press today. That they have become his enemies; that NTV is about partisan politics towards him and also creating bad programs. As they don’t know they don’t know about the almighty lord. He is calling them bad and atheist! Since NTV is bad and doesn’t see God who is looking at their work.
The worst part of this address is that Daily Monitor and NTV is bad, and doesn’t know God. Mzee has lost the plot. This here is another level of harassment on the media from the President. The ban of NTV has burned like fire in dry grass and that is for reason. Nobody else then Mzee has had the media coverage or control of the media as him. Right now the Media isn’t telling the stories he want them tell. The adventures and fairytales of the NRM are not being portrayed in the Daily Monitor or on NTV. They ask questions to his reign, not as UBC and New Vision who process the stories of Ofwono Opondo or Mike Sebula without questioning it. Just like they did when they published the recent 71% lead to Mzee, the same lead he apparently had in 2011. We can’t help to question that or the motivation to get the same coverage in all parts of the media.
That an President proclaims in the end of the campaign period and at the same time says as it the end of the world; also that the media who address the world different than his party are enemies! Surely that is not democratic or justified. Sure he could use some drones to fill in the voter tourism at his campaign rallies or have less UPDF people to keep the people at the rally. So they can’t leave until they are told so.
The programming of the TV Station is for the TV Station or Radio Station to decide depending on what they see as relevant to their schedule and their viewers wish to see it or enjoy it. That is just rude from the President to tell the journalist: that he nearly decree them show his press conference without questioning if they have something else to show. I am sure because he moves his brain and mouth everywhere, so it not literally news anymore. Yeah, I know me playing with the leopard’s anus. But next time maybe not ban a TV Stations before telling the ones showing up their thinking of airing it that is just disrespectful!
Then you tell Red Pepper what to address in the paper, especially not write about human rights violations of the Police, which it is when an opposition woman get undressed in public while travelling to an opposition rally. Instead you want to them to write about your pyramid scheme called the Operation Wealth Creation (OWC), that does not prove any yield yet, that is why I call it a pyramid scheme. You have come up similar programs since taking power in 1986. They have a saying if you lie enough times you believe it as truth. You, Mzee have told the stories on how you will make the country prosperous, instead you have gotten wealthy, while the country you been running is not. That is the reason why Red Pepper writes about Human Rights violations instead of OWC.
Your address the journalist and media as underlings and people, who don’t understand anything, while wanting them to broadcast your stories. You don’t see the misconception in that? This here press conference proves the vile attempt of self-rule and justifications on his own behalf, instead of coming with the tone and gentleman’s approach to the media. Instead he goes gung-ho and address them in a manner that no statesmen would do. Neglecting the fact of how journalism works and that his dedication and presence does not entail a special treatment. You can talk for as many hours as you please and continue with your rallies, but as long as your progress is to stifle media, tell media what to broadcast and also put God into the mix; your losing the basics of news. Media would address you and describe your things if they we’re worthy, or if they we’re paid to do so, as your press are doing constantly like UBC and New Vision. They will have special reports on you and pieces on the achievements of the NRM if you order it. That will not happen from your so-called enemies. If you make them your enemies, then you expect them address your properly? Do you expect people to show you appreciation if you discuss them in volatile way instead being in dialogue? You’re even saying they doesn’t know the almighty God and his overview of the situation, something that you’re implying that your seeing. Isn’t that being a bit naïve and also telling your enemies to be unholy to clean your own hands?
Why should we trust your stories when you tell them the way it makes you look great at any given time, instead of giving the same story! That your implying that you speak the truth while NTV and Daily Monitor tells the opposite. Proves that he has already decided that they are evil and lying to the public, because they don’t tell his stories anymore in the reflection that he wants; because if you don’t tell a story as Mzee then you’re lying; that is my public announcement and keep that in your mind when writing about him. That is what he wants to control your mind so you write the stories he wants; so please Red Pepper, Daily Monitor and NTV address the Operation Wealth Creation, forget the woman of the country and human rights, that doesn’t matter, that is if: Mzee still have the authority to control the creative control of the media and take away the freedom of speech and freedom of the press. That is what he fought for in Luweero in 1980s so he could run the country, not have a free the press or freedom to the people, or have I lost the plot? Peace.
Grace Natabaalo Adyeeri har lagt bilde ut på Facebook. Dette er tåregass. Her er et direkte sitat fra Ivan Okuda: “there was one that police detonated at Monitor, i held it playfully and OMG…i naively rubbed my eyes, the irritation was worse than hell”.
Bilde er lagt ut av Shawn Mabiru. Bildene er tatt av Isaac Kasamani. Mabiru – “The media is the seer for the speechless and in any nation where the rights and freedoms of the media are trampled upon, plainly means that there is no rule of law and democracy”.
Sier ikke disse bildene nok???!!??? Likevel står det ingenting i norske medier. Det er fordi de er pyser!
Dette er bilder jeg har fått tak og sitat jeg fått fatt i via venner og måtte bare spre. Fordi dette er forferdelig og ingen ting om dette i media. I det hele. Heller om Ole Gunnar Solskjærs muligheter i Everton. Noe som ender opp mest sannsynlig med Robert Martinez. Noe som er i for seg grei nyhet. Men dette er virkeligeheten. Som er så langt fra et sukkersøt disney eventyr. Peace.
