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: Succession when talking about Mzee is nonsense!

“You do not lead by hitting people over the head — that’s assault, not leadership.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower

There is an ancient saying that you cannot teach old dogs new tricks, neither can you do with President who has been running a republic since 1986. Therefore, with this in mind, the new comic relief from the National Resistance Movement (NRM) is hard for me to take serious. Certainly, with the knowledge of all the men and possibly woman who could have become the leader of the party and the Executive of Uganda.

Still, in 2017, we are at the same crossroads, the same junction and nothing has changed. The partners and participants are practically the same, unless some new cronies and sugar-babies of the Movement comes into the mix. Perhaps, the most stunning fact is that old men like Gen. Otafiire steadily sink the world with his endless wisdom.

It is as if Museveni still is the Shepard and the Ugandan people is helpless sheep needing his guidance. The reality is that the belief that he can do something he has not done is pointless. The only card he has left is to destroy more kingdoms with force and kill more his opposition. If he had proved some sort of democratic figments in his in body, it has surely died with age. As his words are now more important than legislation.

The President handpicked elite and cronies, the suiters and the ones trying to eat while can. As they know not what will happen when their master stop breathing. The plans and the succession plans has not been official or even portrayed, there been rumors of Maj. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, those leaks turned into a besieged offices and depleted staff at Daily Monitor, back-in-the-day.

Still, if he is the viable candidate to takeover and the family dynasty that the President tries to create is hard to know. Since none in public can read the mind of the old man with the hat. So that the “news” that NRM Members of Parliament finally planned to talk about the succession seems far-fetched! Should it been done a decade or two ago, if it was a serious attempt?

He is on his unofficially seventh term as President and leader of the NRM. The founder and current leader of it. Not as he has given in without weapons in the past and instead of dialogue, he still sends Special Force Command or the Flying Squad to doze of possible enemies. Not as if it is an open discussion, more like a ruckus of who can get first to the brown envelopes and get the license to blead the state out of more funds.

Therefore, here I am, and not believing one single bit that President Museveni or the NRM NEC or any other parts of the NRM have the slightest care in mind to change him for somebody else. NRM and the NRM elite needs Museveni and his cronies, the crony system is there because of him. No question and no one with a clear mind would not see that. He gives and takes away as he sees fit. When he needs you he pays you and your extended family, but when your aspirations or goals to become bigger than him. Then you securing that you become a fringe candidate.

Museveni and his family, Museveni as his business partners does not need succession. The ones asking for it now will become renegade NRM MPs and could end up independent in the Parliament, as in the past when MPs has taken a stand towards the NRM NEC or the almighty himself. I doubt there will be change of guards, as there have not been for decades upon decades.

What we can be sure of is that President Museveni and President Mugabe are doing the same thing in their nations, holding the power without hesitation of what will happen when they leave and what sort of power vacuum that will be unleashed. What we do know is that the NRM will use all of their tricks and manipulation, all sort of writings and public display to make this sort thing normal. Peace.

Tanga Odoi cautions NRM speaker aspirants against personal attacks (Youtube-Clip)

The Chairperson of the NRM Electoral Commission Dr Tanga Odoi has cautioned aspirants for the position of Speaker that they risk being stripped of their candidature it if they continue using the media to malign each other.
Tanga has now issued a directive stopping the candidates from visiting media houses, which he claims has offered a platform of personal attacks. He says the central executive committee, which is the second highest organ of the NRM is due to sit on Monday to decide the selected names that will forwarded to the NRM parliamentary caucus” (NTV Uganda 2016).

Gen. Kayihura knows politics better then Politicians apparently; the Master Yoda of Uganda is Kayihura!

FDC P10 Card

Well, yet again the Ugandan Police Force decides to be a Political actor during election times. As IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura has told Journalist how to do journalism during 2015; he knows now’s how to build party structures, as there is only allowed for NRM to have branches on their organizations. As they have NRM CEC; NRM Historicals, NRM Youth League, NRM Poor Youth and so, and all of them are legal, while FDC can only have their offices and main party but not anything else it seems. Here is what he is initially saying!

What the Inspector of General of Police said today:

“Police have told the Forum for Democratic Change to disband Power-10, a grouping of 10 people per village, which the party says mobilise support for its candidate and will protect votes on election day” (…)”The Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura, said FDC officials have been officially informed about the disbandment of what he called a militia. “If there is any violence, we are going to deal with it,” Gen. Kayihura said” (Bagala, 2016)

Here is the FDC’s Instructions for the P10 Program:

“1- If you want to vote Dr. Besigye, don’t give him only one vote. Please mobilise and recruit 10 more votes for him.

2- On voting day…make sure you GET OUT THE VOTE. Let nobody stay home! You must especially ensure your Power 10 members go in time to the polling station to cast their votes.

3- After voting, protect the vote. You cannot protect it alone! Please be 10 to Protect the vote. 10, 10, 10, at your respective polling stations.

4- After casting and protecting the vote, the final task is to protect victory. The winner must be declared and the loser must accept defeat.

NOTE: -10 people around you is powerful security to each of you. Move together, coordinate together, Vote together” (FDC Mobilisers).

How the NRM intimidate a crowd with the help of UDPF:

Here is their money service delivery with their village bribery program:

Gen Tukumunde Entebbe Dec 2015 - Money Man for NRM

If you see that the FDC is such a danger as they mobilize their supports, just as the executive leaders in the Villages under NRM. But that is NRM, as the NRM as allowed to do anything. They can even pay the villagers, pay and give gifts for votes. As in Kamuli on the 10th February the villagers in the area was given UGX 3k for their vote for the NRM-Regime. That Police doesn’t stop that non-sense is beyond me, but Gen. Kayihura is only following Mzee. The NRM has this Village Program where they give for the total amount of people UGX 250k shared on everybody. In some villages that leaves the amount of value of the vote down 100s or 600 shillings; As in Kikgate sub-county in Isingiro District where each person got UGX 1k yesterday! On the 4th February NRM gave UGX 3k in Kitete Village in Mukono District. As in Bubulo East County in Manafwana district, MP Simon Mulongo Wetende, Mr. Simon diligent job as NRM man delivered UGX 250 to the villages. While the Bupoto Primary School is still neglected; take a look:

Bupoto Primary School in 10.02.2016

Which it cannot only be worth as the amount doesn’t add value to life or even ability to buy anything of worth, and the only thing this program does, is eating tax-money with leverage; NRM using their position to buy votes, something Gen. Kayihura has no troubles with.

While he claims the P10 is illegal militia, the P10 does not carry weapons or sticks, they are not in it for violence as the other outfits of his Police; the Police in charge of inciting more violence, as I have reported over a long time. The Crime Preventers are more a militia then the P10 ever will be.

It is a reason why the Crime Preventers had to be probed in Parliament:

“Prime Minister’s Time, Dr. Rugunda said, “They are not supposed to be playing partisan roles. If there are any errors committed, we shall follow them up and ensure that they are stopped.” Hon. Okumu, a Parliamentary Commissioner, said Police crime preventers were campaigning for the ruling NRM and intimidating supporters of other parties. He added that instead of crime prevention, they were causing crime and had become partisan. Crime preventers, who are mostly youths, undergo training in community policing courses aimed at empowering them with self defense skills, ideological orientation, crime prevention and patriotism.  Similarly, while responding to a question by Mukono Municipality MP, Hon. Betty Nambooze (DP), the Prime Minister said the role of the Police is to enforce the law without discrimination” (Parilament.ug, 2015).

As the Crime Preventers have self-defense training and at Police Schools around the country with sticks, they have more violent tone and a brigade that the Police can enforce to distress the elections; while the P10 is a 10 volunteers who stand-by and stand together while waiting for results and the counting during the elections. As a democratic way of seeing that the votes are conducted correctly by the tally officers and in-charge of the ballots after receiving them. As there been conducting and results for rigging before under President Museveni; Gen. Kayihura shouldn’t enforce and use his Police Force to stop a branch of another political party; as it undress his political ambition and loyalty towards NRM. Uganda Police Force is more looking as a NRM security outfit, then trying to keep the whole country safe as he defends the NRM by any means, also follow orders like a blind dog. Gen. Kayihura is meddling in everything because of his position and because of his loyalty to Mzee. But that doesn’t save the fact that your using rhetoric and actions that counters righteous ways, how to build society and making sure of the safety of the actual citizens that Gen. Kayihura is supposed to do. Instead he creates a force of Crime Preventers that creates violence and tension; generate also fear with the violence and using his police to follow the opposition with Anti-Riot Police and Special Force Command to ensure that the FDC or Go-Forward doesn’t break the regulations set by the Electoral Commission.

Kayihura Mentoring Service

Send a mail to Kayihura: “so you can conduct yourself correctly” — Trust me he will help you out! — It offically Kayihura Mentoring Service! 

So the issue is that Gen. Kale Kayihura should actually do his job and secure the citizens. An not tell opposition to disband one of their branches, as it is set-up to see that their votes get respected by the regime that Kayihura works for. As Kayihura has told us how Journalist should work, it is not surprising that he know has the knowledge on how opposition parties should work and also do their mobilization as Kayihura is the Yoda of Uganda; the man who knows how everybody should act and also conduct themselves; Kayihura has the answers to how everybody should cross the street, grow bananas and even seek refugees under tropical storms. So if you ever wonder how to act or behave as a person in Uganda, please send a mail to: info@upf.go.ug and he will give you advice that makes Oprah look like a wild kid. Kayihura will help you out, trust me! Peace.

Maj. Gen. Matayo Kyaligonza, the NRM Historical; Who has interesting thoughts on President Museveni’s succession and retiring plans

NRM Ideology.jpg-large 2

Major General Matayo Kyaligonza who is part of the Ugandan Envoy to Burundi has started to speak his mind to the media. He has become critical of the way Museveni lingers in power and trying to get his son-in-law Rwabwogo to succeed him in power in country. At the same time talking about respecting him as the president he still is, but this is totally different from what other loyalist are doing in the country. A breath of fresh air, wonder how Mzee feels about this? Now all of a sudden brigadier Kyaligonza from the bush-war is questioning his methods and continuation of the power in the country.

Maj Gen. Matayo Kyaligonza has been saying recently:

“Let the president call a meeting of NRM top organs of the National Executive Council and Central Executive Committee and we discuss the matter [Sucession]” (…) “Our dear president has also made it very clear. Presidency is not like hereditary club. He should call NEC and CEC and let us discuss. We used to discuss matters in the bush really” (…) “I can defy any other person but Museveni is still the president and I respect him” (…) “the way I see it” (…) “If I meet him (Rwabwogo) somewhere and he says that I know nothing will give him a hot slap” (…) “the one who brought us here? If you want to succeed your father do you kill him in order to get your inheritance?” (…) “Youths shouldn’t think that they will start with wanting to be president. Let them start at the LC-I then we see how they behave. But when you say that the old guard are “bazeeyi”[old] and they don’t know what they are saying then we shall have problems” (…) “[Historicals] don’t want familiarity because when we came [into power] we didn’t disrespect people” (The Insider, 2015).

He has spoken his mind a little bit more:

“Who is that one? Odrek? I don’t know him, I have never even seen him,” he said. “Is he the one who gave me work? He should tell such things [about retiring] to his father in–law [Museveni]. We are the ones that brought his father-in-law in power. Don’t make me talk too much” (…) “As a matter of fact, he was the commander who took down Makindye barracks, attacking Ndeeba from Masaka road. I know that very well,” Rwabwogo said. “I give him the due respect and the honour that you give an elder. However, I stand on the shoulders of the elders in order to do something better because there is always an evening of something and a dawn of another” (…) “When I get annoyed, I really get annoyed and I say the truth. I never sugar-coat in order to make people happy. We [historicals] don’t want familiarity because when we came [into power] we didn’t disrespect people,” (…) ““Look at all those people who are attending [Col Kizza] Besigye’s rallies. They want to support a cause because they are tired” (Kiyonga & Nsubuga, 2015).

Kyaligonza Old Pic

Afterthought:

I think his quotes and words speak of volume on their own. That he is asking questions in this manner also from a man who has been that loyal and becoming part of the Historicals of the NRM. He has gotten even a place in the Ugandan Envoy to Burundi as talk of dialogue there. He straightforward talking about discussion of power in the NEC and CEC proves that their questions from the loyalist even in the party. Even if the Police have gotten control over NRM Poor Youth Forum it will be harder to push on the Historicals because of their history and place in the legendary bush-war that brought the NRA which is now the NRM into power. So the President has to listen to keep things in order he can’t ambush the brigadier in the same way as the youth, even if he ask sincere questions about the succession and sole candidacy that President Museveni lives by. And it should be thought about when he is quoted and clear voice: “I never sugar-coat in order to make people happy. We don’t want familiarity because when we came [into power] we didn’t disrespect people”. That should be red light for the president! That is not GREEN! Not a go. That is what he is saying! Though I believe that the Mzee he has served all this year’s, won’t listen now and he hasn’t listened before. Brigadier can have the best intention in the world and speaking his mind about the president, but he at the same time want to show loyalty, that doesn’t mix with the general words he speaking. Though that is something we can expect, he is after all a military man who want to be frank, but also want to keep up with chain-of-command! Peace.
