NRM MPs Kyankwanzi Resolution: Shows there is no free thought in the Movement!

Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front”Nelson Mandela

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) have resolved nothing during the Kyankwanzi Summit in 2019. They have implemented the resolution, which honours the NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC), which had already on the 19th February 2019 endorsed President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as the sole candidate for the General Election in 2021.

Today, the NRM MPs or Caucus at the Kyankwanzi have resolved that the future needs the leadership of Museveni, not only for the 2021 Election, but also beyond. That is two months apart, that the NRM MPs shown their token and loyalty to the almighty President. The President for life. That they are now promoting and directly saying:

We need Mzee more now, than ever before”, also to top it off, like anyone who is blind and not having ability to think freely, the NRM MPs states: “We need his firm guidance in mentoring and growing ideological, political and technical cadreship for protecting the gains of our revolution, as well as securing the future of the Ugandan and African people”.

That is what these people are able to say, they are Members of Parliament, the lawmakers and the elite of the Republic. Still, they are as worshipping their leader, like he is a cult leader, a deity, who has to guide them and lead them to redemption. They are awaiting his teachings and knowledge, because they don’t know where else to seek it. They are just awaiting the enlightenment from Mzee, the Bosco, the Mr. Sunday or Yoseri even.

Now they are waiting to get a vision, a sight and clear themselves from the desert and into a mirage; they want him to save them from hell and bring them into heaven. Because, that is the initial message from the latest NRM Kyankwanzi Resolution of 17th March 2019.

These MPs cannot ever be taken as free thinking individuals after signing off to this document and accepting the wording. They are all blind slaves, all minions of the President, these people doesn’t have any idea of leadership, neither what guidance is.

The NRM MPs doesn’t have the capability or mind to cope without the President. Since, they are just existing because the President. Therefore, they got to show him submission, praise him and be his servants. That is who they are, if they claim otherwise, just show their resolution. Nothing else matters, that is their ideas put into print. That is their life, this is their leader for life and they cannot see anyone else. This is why they are blind as bat and cannot see anything, not even how this sort of resolution or decision to again make the President a Sole Candidate.

Nothing is showing progress, nothing is showing excellence or integrity. They are just showing, that they cannot function or see a future without Museveni. Like there have been no Uganda before him. That is cult like behaviour. If the MPs don’t like it, that is fine, but this how it seems.

Mzee can do whatever, say whatever, act like whatever and still these people will praise him. No matter what happens, he is the guiding star, the man who has the answers. That is why they are never wearing hoodies and wanting snipers in their cars, as they drive through Bombo Road in Kampala. Peace.

NRM Kyankwanzi – Resolution (17.03.2019)

NRM Kyankwanzi Summit: Only shows again, that the party is a bunch of minions of Jajja!

Well, it is that of year, that time of the prequel before the next General Election. This time, its the National Resistance Movement (NRM) gathering at Kyankwanzi, where they are having a retreat to find their way and show their tokens of loyalty to their master. Especially when his around, when he comes in army fatigue and is prepared to sensitize them. Which will happen eventually. Because, nothing is left to chance.

Just like earlier in this year, the NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC) endorsed Yoweri Kaguta Museveni for sole Presidential Candidate in 2021. The MPs and the Delegates at the NRM Kyankwanzi retreat, is doing the same. It is just like clockwork.

What is more striking and vindictive, but in mercy of their almighty leader, is that the Caucus at the Summit are planning another constitutional change, just to fit the Program of their leader. This time a newly minted age limit on the youth. In a way to close of the Presidency for the youngest citizens of the state. This time, you cannot run until your of 45 year old. That means you not eligible before turned 46 years old.

What is more striking, in a Republic where about 95 % of the population is under 54 years. Under 24 years of age is about 69 % of the Population. Therefore, the NRM is proposing to ban the average Ugandan for eligibility to stand as President. Not that everyone and everybody is able to run or neither fit to do so. But not even having a head start, but being blocked because of the average age says a lot. Because the estimated population above 54 years is about 5 % and really isn’t much, considering that is biggest part of the pool of the candidates. That is if the NRM Kyankwanzi idea gets put into law.

This is to definitely strike at Robert Kyagulanyi and his candidature, also if others like Joseph Mabarizi or anyone else of youthful stature seeks the highest office. However, we all know this game. We knew the previous age limit was cancelled because it fit the Presidency. If the President see this as a fitting request. He will get it through Parliament as well. That is just the way he is and operates.

Just as the loyalty of the NRM CEC, the NRM at Kyankwanzi has to shows token of loyalty and pay homage to the old man with the hat, the only man with a vision, the almighty Bosco and his clan. They have to show grace and hope for mercy. Even if they only get a yellow t-shirt or jersey for their work and dedication.

You couldn’t expect anything else, the sessions and plans ahead of 2021 are all there. There is nothing new under sun. The sun is shining, but the light its shining is clearly not enlightening all of us. Since, they are following the pattern of submission. Not thinking on their own and not even trying to show any committed to better judgement. Peace.

Opinion: Kyaligonza, I will joke with you!

“Let me tell you, Kyaligonza is not a person to joke with” (…)“You must not forget that I contributed to the peace you are enjoying in the country, yet you ridicule me?” – Maj Gen Matayo Kyaligonza (New Vision, 26.02.2019).

Well, Mr. I’m Above the Law, because I went to the Bush in 1980s. What’s up?

How is it hanging? Right, left or straight? Because, your not entitled to force yourself on people, to harass and harm them. Because you took arms and brought down a government in the 1980s. How entitled are you?

When can this stopped being invoiced to the public? Since the public is continuing to pay for the misgivings and hardships, you and your comrades did in the 1980s. The bills never stops, the reality of it all is that it continues to this day.

The so-called liberation has only been for a few, the way you act Kyaligonza and other weapon brothers act. The high-ranking officials of the Bush-War, which has now their entitlement put into stone and the rest, can just vanish. They are just people that can used and let be canned. That is how you act.

You deserved to be mocked, as your act oblivious to the fact, that you act like your superior, above the law and like you’re the esteemed bourgeois, whose only supposed to get served and be high and mighty. The rest are your slaves, they are not supposed to order you around or tell you anything. Your so special, so unique and smell of royalty. That is who you think you are.

That the Bush-War and the legacy of that entitles you to slap woman, grab land, be grandeur and get away with any legal ramification. Since you picked up the guns in the 1980s and because of that, you should be shielded from the law, forever, ever since.

Let me be straight with you Maj. Gen. Kyaligonza, as you have to force yourself on woman, use your armed guards against a traffic officer and surely you would easily repeat this offence. Let me tell you this, your are a coward, the only difference between an ordinary coward and you? Is that you’re a coward with a gun.

You wouldn’t act like this if your were righteous, if it was correct, but because of stature, you have allowed to act this way. It is beneath your station and stature, but you think you can do it. That is who you are, a bonafide coward with titles and a bush-war legacy. Your not great, your weak and your only manhood is proven, when you take others freedom, liberties and even their dignity away.

Your not a man of principal or ethics, your not a man of honesty or of justice, you’re a man of entitlement and scaremongering. You are still a foot soldier for the President. He will not save you, even if you think so.

Kyaligonza… shish, you think your all that, but in reality your not. It is a reason you’re the ambassador to Burundi. You’re a crony and imbecile, who force yourself and your titles on people. Time for you to retire and maybe serve with grace, though it’s a waste saying that. Because, you never will. Your like your master, will linger in the realms of power until your last breath. Peace.

Opinion: Nothing is more endearing than NRM Rebels!

No matter how you look at it, it is just sweet and cuddly, the ideas of National Resistance Movement (NRM) rebels. They are just a rare breed of people. Their persistence on the ethical backbone, the narrative, that they are fighting a just cause, while still being tied directly to the oppressor. Is just unique, it is just amazing. That they are supposed to be cherished and become so special.

What is always so striking about the rebels in this party, which was based on rebellion and even a bush-war. Is that, they will be hunt down and strike back hard, against the ones that counters party line. It is so novel in their approach. It is deep and the surge usually uses all the tricks in the book. There is nothing left to chance, they are getting demoted, kicked out of the party and sometimes if lucky. If they repent, they can enter again. That is the road ahead, which is far from open to anyone. Who has already crossed the army-fatigued party line.

Why am I writing this? Today and in the coming days, there will be some NRM rebels coming forward for reasons of disloyalty or even trying to gain popularity, as the NRM CEC have endorsed the President. Not that it was a shocker or a misconception that he would run in 2021. It is just that, the NRM rebels would think the process should be done differently and they should have a voice. Not just the highest body in the party delegating whose the main candidate. However, Museveni wouldn’t do that, he leaves nothing to chance when it comes to his livelihood. That is just well known facts and the insiders, these rebels should know it best.

That is why it just seems like a play for the stage, they are just playing out their grievances, like married men who still not being laid. They have to complain and get annoyed, that their wife isn’t doing it anymore. Not that their breath doesn’t stink or their pockets are empty. That the wife is tired after working. No, it is all the wife’s fault, because they have done nothing wrong. The wifey will think otherwise.

It is the same sentiment I get out a NRM rebel. They knew this going in. The main rebel, the resistance captain, the chairman and the supposed liberator is not someone you should challenge. That is known since 1980, because he couldn’t manage to loose, even back then.

Therefore, NRM Rebels might defy, they might resist, even go in with words of fire and fury. However, they knew when they became flag-bearers and honourables, that they would play a secondary role to the Master.

That is why the rebels who went against the abolishment of the Age Limit lost the privilege of the trips to the State House, to be part of the NRM Caucus before the voting of vital bills. Some has been outcast and become “independent” MPs whose sole cause is themselves and own agenda. Even if they still are voting with the NRM on most things. That is why, the rebellions are quickly squashed.

Not only because the NRM rebels are fighting themselves, but because they are needing the pay-check and making their ends meet. They are really trying to figure out ways to get into the fold and kiss the ring. That is why these rebels are so endearing. Because, at one moment, they are defying the king. In the next moment, they are invited to the king and bowing their knees in loyalty. It is just a matter of time.

Unless, they are some resilient fellows, who got balls of steel and is ready to push the envelope. If so, they got some character, but usually, they give way and give in. They just tried to play to the popular stance, but in the end had to give up. They gave up because knew their fight was ill conceived and wouldn’t bear fruits.

That why I salute their hustle, but don’t anticipate a revolution or a true rebellion, because they will in the end. Give way to their master, yet again. Peace.

NRM CEC Retreat Concludes with Directives to Government to Effect Urgent Changes (19.02.2019)

The Forever Young: Jajja Museveni will run again!

Mr. I Never Run Out of Age. Mr. Sunday, Bosco/Bosiko or even Jajja. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is now officially the sole candidate of the National Resistance Movement. Not that is surprising to anyone. Because, Mr. President have been running for highest office since 1980 failed elections and took power by force in 1986. Since then, he has never left. He is officially on his 5 term, but we all know its his 7th and from 2021 – 2026 would be his 8th Term.

Therefore, when the NRM Central Executive Committee resolved, whatever they needed to resolve today. They surely fattened their own pockets or are ensuring someone is paid off. So, that all eyes will be on Mr. President since 1986. The man of the enclave, bottlenecks and forever promising to take the Republic to a First Nation/Middle Income Country. However, never succeed doing so, because him and his cronies are steady eating. If it is breadcrumbs or if it Toyota Prado’s, they are surely taking a mouth full.

That is why this was anticipated, as the NRM Roadmap for 2020-21 have already been launched. The plan for the NRM Primaries are soon put into print and the budgets for the coming time is also put through parliament. As the stages of General Elections and Campaigning is soon arriving.

The Old Man with the Hat has to re-engage and ensure his stamina. That the people inside the party is following his vision, whatever that is at this stage and time. If he goes yellow, mellow or just saying “Hello”. Whatever it is, isn’t trying to succeed the initiated 10 Point Programme, the Vision 2020 or 2040, but something else of his own fan fiction. Because at this point, that is what his plans are.

The President is only working for himself and not for the Republic. The party is filled with stooges and he is only looking for ways to keep people preoccupied or happy. As long as he stays in power, while his son Muhoozi is higher ranking and prepared as final heir. When the old man finally succumb to final destination. Natural death, which seems like the only likely way out of office. If the Ugandans will accept a dynasty, that is time to tell, but at the moment. No one will conquer, the President in an unfair challenge at polls. That is because, everyone is owned and controlled by the puppet master and Commander-in-Chief. The almighty Bosco, the Jajja Bings of Politics and mockery of democracy.

That is Yoweri for you, the one who thinks his supreme and the overlord of the Republic. The man entitled to rule, the one entitled to teach and to lecture, the one whose decree and word is law. The man who uses scriptures and uses medieval tactics against his opposition. There are no hope of a positive or change. Only more self-styled dictatorship and self centred laws in the time ahead.

The NRM CEC gave the public and the world, what it anticipated, because they are blind sheep, whose only destiny was to continue to milk this dying cow. To get the last pieces of milk and hopefully not spoil it.

Congrats Yoseri of Kaguta, you got this one, you carried it, but if it was wise. That is another question. Your apparently not following your own words. As Africa’s Problem was that People Overstay in Power. But these words wasn’t meant for you, but for Mobutu and the likes. You Museveni are supreme and people like shouldn’t address you. However, we do, because the Ugandan people deserves better than you. Peace.

NRM Primaries in 2020 will be like the Resistance Councils election in 1989!

All our politics must be development oriented” Yoweri Kagtua Museveni on 11th April 1989

We know that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) is a big organization and run by the President himself. He has never let his hand out of the cookie jar. Especially now, as the NRM Electoral Commission and the whole NRM are planning their Roadmap for General Elections of 2020/21. However, the President and his CEC has decided that they are copying the LC1 Elections for the Primaries.

Not t that its shocking, as the NRM Primaries of late, has been tragic and so rigged, that even NRM Party Offices gets burned by angry party members. Therefore, the NRM Primaries of the 2015, was even described by Gen. Kahinda Otafiire as a Circus at one point. Surely, because he lost his Primaries. There was so much shocking nonsense happening, that NRM CEC wants the NRM EC to have a easier job and secure the elections being held like kids does when picking their team captain or class-captain. Not for picking candidates as legislators or their representatives. It was done in the recent LC1 Elections in 2018,

What was done in 2018 was ordinary procedure in the 1980s and 1990s, as the people was lining behind the candidate they favoured. Therefore, the NRM is re-issuing the method that was done by the predecessors, instead of ensuring the secret ballot is respected. As they want the peer-pressure to reign in the Republic. So, they can secure the candidates, that the NRM CEC has selected, because no one wants to be foolish standing behind the wrong person.

Report from the NRM CEC:

From their deliberations this Saturday 16th February 2019, the members of the Central Executive Committee (CEC) have agreed to recommend to members and other organs the amendment of the Party Constitution to provide for lining-up as a mode for all internal elections. CEC has also set up a Sub committee to enhance resource mobilisation for the party and its expected to report back to CEC within a period not exceeding one month. The Committe will be chaired by the 1st National Vice Chairman of NRM Hajji Moses Kigongo with the National Treasurer Hon Rose Namayanja Nsereko as its Secretary. Other members on the committe are Hon. Sam Engola (Northern), Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi (Veterans), Hon. Mike Mukula (Eastern), Dr. Robert Rukari (Entreprenuers) and the Deputy National Treasurer Dr. Kenneth Omona” (Rogers Mulindwa – ‘NRM: CEC APPROVES LINING-UP FOR INTERNAL ELECTIONS’ 16.02.2019).

What the NRM are proposing are going back in history, not only doing it like the LC1 Elections in 2018. This is a practice the NRM did the first time in 1989 for the Resistance Councils back-then. Where they we’re lining up behind the candidate of choice. Therefore, the NRM are not moving forward, but moving backwards. They are using techniques and methods of old, instead of innovating or even trying to fulfil the possibility of a secret ballot.

Therefore, the NRM CEC is going for old trick in the NRM Primaries. They are entrusting themselves in old methods. Instead of trying to go digital or even configure the measures of the 2015 Primaries. They are doubting Dr. Tanga Odoi and the whole NRM EC. The NRM CEC is initially saying, the party is not able to run an election as professional or sincere as others. They have to use school-kid, UPE ways of picking the class captain. They are not able to create the environment to ensure the ballots, that is why they are going back to lining up behind their candidate of choice. This is in the end, a way of defeat. Where there isn’t steady progress, but more steady regress, because the NRM Primaries are becoming like the first Resistance Councils was elected in 1989.

That is why Museveni is securing his legacy, that he is showing the world. That instead of going into the future, he is going into his past. Instead of delivering and securing the future, he is just securing himself. The President is more keen on consolidating power and his cronies, than genuinely offering a democratic model. As he has even by this means, scrapped the secret ballot internally within the ruling party. That is how weak his ideas of democracy and his lack of concern of privacy of the voters. As it will be all in the open, instead of being a secret choice.

They will stand upright like school-kids voting for their candidate of choice. Instead of getting the ability to honour their candidate in secrecy. The choice they do will be public, where the possible fear, intimidation and even peer-pressure will be more prominent. As if the NRM selected candidate for the constituency will maybe gain more, than a upcoming candidate, which is not the favourable one. Peace.

Opinion: Mzee, its your system that let the Minister’s sleep!

Do not blame people and their attitudes: the problem is not corruption or greed, the problem is the system that pushes you to be corrupt. The solution is not, “Main Street, not Wall Street,” but to change the system where Main Street cannot function without Wall Street.” Slavoj Zizek

That this is an issue now isn’t strange. The National Resistance Movement have run the Republic since 1986. The growing amount of cronies, corruption and filled with useful idiots around the President. The President are clearly acting out. The NRM knows this, because they have made the entitlement, the ones who are eating, but not talented or anything. They are appointed, not on merit, but by either family or loyalty. That is why the Ministers and Presidential Advisors are like they are.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni knows this perfectly well. He could have sacked all of them. The growing level of the Cabinet, which is about 81 Ministers in total and 146 Presidential Advisors. They can all chill-out, as they can rarely be changed or even sacked. Cannot remember that in a long while. If something is happening, there are some minor changes or they end up in the NRM Party Organizations, like Dr. Tanga Odoi ended up with NRM Electoral Commission for the Primary Elections. That is how the NRM does and the President knows. Therefore, there are no need to overwork or do to much. Because, there are no sanctions or such. Since they are all secured and eating as they are in office under this President.

Many of my ministers are sleeping. They are selfish and only think about themselves. Ugandans know how to listen if they are told the right things, that is how we managed to build the Movement by learning and listening to others” Yoweri Kaguta Museveni while addressing investors during the sixth Presidential Investors Round Table (PIRT) at State House on the 8th February 2019 (Misairi Thembo Kahungu – ‘Museveni: My ministers are selfish, sleep on job’ 08.02.2019, link: https://www.monitor.co.ug/News/National/Museveni—My-ministers-selfish–sleep-job/688334-4971964-60mn1qz/index.html).

There are reasons why they are sleeping. There are Ministers for small or minor Ministries with Micro-Budgets, where they have a lax mandate or not even enough Principal Secretaries or Organization that matters to fulfil the work they need. The Ministries are inter-connected and doesn’t have the funding or the manpower. As there are so many Auditor General reports, where the open post of lacked hired staff comes up, again and again.

There are so many systemic defects, but surely that is done deliberate by the President. As he offers the most funds to the Ministry of Defence, State House, Office of the Prime Minister and so on. The others are getting less, as well, as the amounts of funds that goes to pay back loans that the state has collected. This is known, as the deficit are filled not with donor funds, but loans, which they are now paying more and more by every year.

The President can complain about his Ministers. But he appointed them and trusted them. He has made their positions and made them responsible. They are supposed to answer to him and follow the mandate the government have given them. The possibilities to do so, are made by the budget and funds given. Also, the strategic and willing to let them develop it. However, the President usually goes for quick fixes and not for long-term planning, as his erratic micro-management style. That is well-known. As well, as the President always blame others, but take all CREDIT.

Therefore, this President is not someone who will stay behind his people, but push them to the crocodiles, if they are not doing their thing or if they become to ambitious. Certainly, the President can complain, if they don’t do enough. He should sanction the ones or give them a carrot to act. Peace.

Opinion: The Ghosts Continue to Haunt the YLP!

The Youth Livelihood Programme (YLP) by every minute going, seems like a forged project and fake government projects. In ways to secure funding for other things for other Public Officials, why do I say that? Because the YLP have been given a red-flag before. The YLP should be known for its ghosts and its forged documents.

The ones running it should be questioned, as the YLP is under the Office of the Prime Minister. Therefore, the known OPM who has misused funds, which is not breaking news, but more of the same. While it was revealed there was ghosts in the YLP. This has been known for a while. The was a similar report made in 2017, as it was in 2019. That is why I will show them. To prove the similarities and lack of change.

Just take a look.

Article from 2017:

A recent government investigation has unearthed gross corruption, ghost groups, illegal fees charged for application forms and poor monitoring of the programme countrywide. The same evil has crept into the newly established Women Livelihood Programme started in 2015. The new findings back up the 2016 auditor general’s report, which found the Youth Livelihood Programme did not have a proper accounting framework. The report also found that recovery of funds was so low and some beneficiaries had vanished in at least 35 districts, including Masaka, Rakai, Wakiso, Kalangala and Kalungu. According to the ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development, at least Shs 84.55 billion has so far been disbursed in loans to over 144,235 individuals affiliated to 11,503 youth groups countrywide, but only Shs 6.7 billion had been recovered by the end of January 2017” (Arua District Local Government – ‘PROBE FINDS ROT IN YOUTH LIVELIHOOD PROGRAMME’ 22.07.2017).

URN reported on the 4th January 2019:Among the queries raised by the auditor general John Muwanga in the reports, is the existence ghost beneficiaries under the Youth Livelihood Programme (YLP) – noting that about 527 million of the fund money is non-traceable. The money was allegedly spent on ghost groups in 30 districts randomly sampled during the audit period” (URN – ‘MPs grill Bigirimana over youth fund ghost beneficiaries’ 04.01.2019).

Before, I settle down on the matter, there was also a communique from the National Resistance Movement Youth League letter of the 14th October 2016, when the Minister of State for Youth and Children Affair Hon. Nakiwala Kyingi, that all Youth Chairman should be connected with Local Technocrats, where they decide that NRM-YL had to use the YLP system to get funds. This was decided in 2016. Therefore, since then, the NRM-YL and others have to make YLP Projects to get funding and loans.

As we knows that, at the same time-frame of the Auditor General report claims funds gone mission in various of districts, also ghost projects and others. Proving this is deliberate actions done by people, who are eating of the YLP. They are using this designated funds to secure wealth or spend on whatever, without any proof.

This is clearly evident of corrupt behaviour and misuse of government funds. That is not new in the Republic either. The YLP is following a long line of short-cons in the government. In 2017, there was talk of vanishing funds in 30 districts, in 2019, there is talk of 35 districts. Certainly, this is managed and mismanaged deliberatly by the Public Officials. Peace.
