Opinion: Matsiko, it would have been better if you remained silent…

Here we go again; Dan Matsiko of NFT (New Form of Thinking) Uganda is at it again. This time really out of line with both the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), which his supposed to be part off and also People Power Movement head Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. The attempt to sway opinion and dropping a statement on Facebook. Only shows his intent, which isn’t for the good, but for his own pockets.

Why do I say that? This man remains silent and dubiously away in the times of hardships. His gone missing, nowhere to be found, but when Campaign season hits the fan. His suddenly everywhere and trying to inject himself to the public sphere. Like his a phenomenon worth following. That’s why his insulting Besigye and Bobi Wine, also POA while his at it. Just take a look at this mess.

Matsiko Statement:

Though NFT Uganda was privy to Muntu ‘s fall at FDC we didn’t takeup the FDC headquarters, supporters of Kizza Besigye shared the spoils amongst themselves. Went public chest thumping forgetting their victory was partly engineered by other two party presidential candidates who criss – crossed the country decampaigning Mugisha Muntu” (…) “Our presidential bid in 2020 -2021 is a vote of no confidence in the Amuriat run FDC, Besigye controlled FDC headquarters and Katonga group and above all to the entire class members of 1986, Museveni, Muntu and Tumukunde are all part of the class and mere pretenders in the politics of Uganda. We don’t expect much from Robert Kyagulanyi because he was part of IGP Kale Kayihura’s brutality machinery in the Uganda police force” (Dan Matsiko – Special Update, 06.03.2020).

Bobi Wine statement after the sacking of Kayihura:

Unfortunately, it seems he wants to hold on until he too is showed the exit door, and that day will surely come. I am sure Kayihura didn’t think he would wake up sacked and Ugandans celebrating his exit. Another thing here is that unfortunately these people never learn. President Museveni has mastered the art of using them and dropping them when they have served his purpose but also turned themselves against the population. No one has harassed the opposition and worked hard to entrench this dictatorship than Kayihura. Today, after serving the purpose and turning himself into possibly one of the most hated Ugandans, he has been dropped” (Bobi Wine, 05.03.2018).

Why I am dropping this today, because of his reckless statement. That will be shared on various of social media groups and finally end up shared on WhatsApp. This is why it needs to be dismissed as hogwash. His insinuating things and massaging his message in a fashion that is disrespectful. Not only to Besigye and Bobi Wnie, but also to everyone involved in the manners.

When Matsiko says he has a presidential bid, he said the same in 2016, but didn’t stand up for the bill or even run. People was actually waiting for the man to be certified and ready to run. Something he never did. Therefore, his really brave now in 2020 speaking like a big-shot, when he hasn’t even proven his paperwork with the Electoral Commission like other Presidential aspirants.

Secondly and last. His lies about Bobi Wine is just outrages. It is insincere and ill minded. The same about his attempt to discredit Besigye, a man whose taken the cost to stand up against the junta and the dictatorship, more than anyone and more than Matsiko could ever pull off. Therefore, Dan, back-off, be silent and shut-up. Unless, you got something positive or constructive to do. Because, this is not it. Peace.

Press Statement: Dear Ugandan voter and citizen you have the right to know what the Government in Power does with your hard earned Tax Money (22.10.2015)

Malcom Matsiko

Ugandans should be bold to ask tough questions. The committee in parliament on public accounts committe should come more often to account or expose the flaws in spending public money.

I would like President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and the presidency department to account to the tax payers of this country the money he has spent in on foreign trips or travel since he become a head of state in 1986.

I recently approached protocal office at the Ugandan parliament with the intention to meet the president in person and put point blank the reasons I will never support him in this country. Among the issues our team wanted him to respond on was how much does he spend on frequent trips outside the country?

I was told I can’t meet him because the head of state is booked from now to next year May for NRM party activities and trips around the globe.

I was frustrated and am still with the burning issues we had prepared to deliberate on.

Atleast in the last 30 days , the president was in Khartoum Sudan, was in Kenya Nairobi, was in Rome Italy, He was in New York ,Algeria and I think other countries.

The president’s handlers should avail all the details on these trips sponsored by the Ugandan citizen and tax payers.

I guess the figures are exceedingly huge whereas civil servants and pensioners are not paid their little money, salaries/wages since July todate.

The children in Northern Uganda dieing because they can’t have a plate of food to eat in 24 hours if not at the border with Tanzania in Rakai district there are tens and hundreds reported dead because of lack of food and water. Many of these dieing are mostly refugees that were expelled by the government of Tanzania a few years ago and were allowed into Ugandan territory hurriedly without any prior consultations with primary stakeholders.

The prime minister’s office cut off supplying the refugee camp with food and water putting the lives of human beings in that camp at stake.

It was reported that men throw themselves in the nearby river to die instead of helplessly watching their loved ones starve to death.

The other day a couple of people called us saying we are not patritic because we referred to Mr. Yoweri Museveni the President of Uganda , his dim lieutenants and pals in government like Anite Evelyn, Kenneth Omona, Omondo Omondo, Namara , Kibuule , Hon.Ogwang and many others young or old government advisors as highly decorated opportunists Uganda has ever produced since time immomerial.

What justification can the whole band of “Tubonge Naawe” give to call for the commedians in luganda the”dikulas” of this country like Bebe Cool, Jose Chameleon , Juliana Kanyomozi and the entire crew of artistes that feasted with Mr. Museveni in Munyonyo luxury hotel last week wheras hundred of population starving in country supposed to be a basket of Africa???deaths of people within our borders due to lack of a mere plate of food and a mere glass of water to drink? Yet they gladly met to con Mr. Museveni under the auspice of NRM lady Anite Evelyn a minister in the current insensitive , elitest , lukewarm regime.

Uganda needs a third liberation, this time around by us Ugandans not foreigners like in the case of 1978/79 and 1981-1986 bush war that saw Rwandan commanders like Late Fred Rwigyema , Beingana, Bunyenyenzi, Katureebe , Kalegyeya and Gen. Kagame fighting and handing over power to rebel leader Yoweri Museveni. In 1979, unsung Tanzanian heroes liberated this country and handedover power to Ugandan renegades Yoweri Museveni inclusive.

So for one to really overstate that Yoweri Museveni is the father of this country, the liberator, the saviour and etc, like Anite Evelyn misleads the un informed Ugandans that is to be a pathetic and celebrated liar in modern times. The man was in sweden eating sauges when kampala fell and late Dr.Obote was overthrown by his very own solidiers , the Okellos and Milton ran to exile in to Zambia. The solidiers were later fooled by late Rwigyema led group and Salim Saleh to lose kampala to the NRA where Museveni outsmarted the NRM political wing and was sworn in as the junta leader of 1986. By now you can perfectly and orrectly understand why we said that Museveni is a highly decorated opportunist in Uganda.

We need the figures to see how much he spends on foreign presidential visits begging other countries to grant expensive loans to this nation since he become president and compare huge with the thorny challenges this country is bedevilled with .
