Does the US Gov. care how their Security Aid is used on the civilians in Kampala?

Since 2012 the United States have donated Security Aid to the Republic of Uganda in the total amount of $291,096,088, in 2018 alone they have donated $80,665,000. These numbers are taken from the Security Assistance Monitor. So, these are legit numbers. This is giant numbers, as the republic are parts of peacekeeping missions in AMISOM and in Central African Republic. However, some of these funds are used locally and on training of soldiers, which could be part of the Special Force Command as we speak.

What does the United States of America and the US Ambassador Deborah R. Malac feel about that? Are they proud that their military ally and for life President is working to become their modern day Mobutu. Which they also supported for decades, until he became a sore thumb and they had to overthrow him. Like they did with his predecessor together with Belgians in the than Zaire.

Will the United States stop their relationship and their military support of the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) and the Special Force Command, as they are used to attack civilians, as they are in on the streets to torment the public.

I wonder if they have any sort of plan now, as their “aid” is now really hurting people, the training from American Military and the certainly the arms-trade are now used directly at civilians. It is not used to fight the wars the Americans don’t want to participate directly themselves. Now, it is used to actually kill innocent civilians and used to prolong Museveni’s tyranny. Is that what the US ideal in East Africa is about?

Will the United States be responsible for their cultivation of Museveni and for all the weapons, the training and the direct military support of the republic.

We can wonder if they are proud that the helped trained soldiers are used to silence the media, silence the voice of the people and to prolong the dictatorship. That should make the Washington D.C. so proud, that their funds are directly a life-line for the President for life.

The Ugandan republic is sovereign and should be able to determine their own political trouble on their own. But when we know that the US is participating at these levels with security funding. They should take responsibility and man-up. Suspend their security aid and step away. Until someone who is suitable and actually elected by the people is running the Republic. Right now, its one man forcing his rule on the people with the arms traded with the US. That should be a worry the USA, even with their history of interfering and securing their men in power. Peace.

A Military Takeover as the Kampala Riots continues for freeing Bobi Wine!

There been parts of Kampala like in Kamwokya, where there been riots for over three days. While today there been riots across the city for Kisekka Market, Makindye, Kamwokya, Ntinda and the Old Kampala. This is showing, that after some time, the people are have started to demonstrate over bigger areas. As the weekend started in Kamwokya and some parts into Gayaza road in the Kyadondo East district which is Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine was elected from. Therefore, the youth and people is demonstrating for him and the rest of the arrested MPs in the custody of the authorities.

Result of today:

70 people reportedly arrested in protests against MPs’ arrest. Riots started in Kampala spread to Mukono, Kayunga and Jinja” (NTV Newsroom, 20.08.2018).

There been several of journalists detained and arrested because of the riots, as they were monitoring and reporting on it. Both in NTV journalists Juma Kiirya and Ronald Galiwango was arrested, while being on the streets of Kampala. Also, James Akena of Reuters was beaten by the soldiers. On Nasser Road soldiers forced hundreds of people down on the ground to kneel and have the their arms in the air. To really show who was in command. On Kampala Road people was walking through with their hands in the air.

There was burning tires, tear-gas and soldiers across the city. There was across town reports of soldier going around masked. Meaning they were covering up themselves and shows their lack of understanding of what they are doing. As they are harassing and tormenting people to stay in power. Because they are starting to question the power of the people. They are burning tires and showing their discontent they way they know, while the soldiers and police are tormenting the public.

The President have clearly ordered the Special Force Command to contain the riots of Kampala. There are also some reports of stay-bullets used by these men hitting people. But the amount of shot or killed is uncertain. At this point, each one is too many. Each one of them is done as the President ordered. He accepted their fate and are responsible.

To know the real results to this matter. It is hard to know at this present time. However, what this is a proof of the militarism and the answer to every single move. Is to call in the army and violate people’s right to demonstrate. They are not allowed to have a voice and answer back to the authorities who oppress them. Who take their leaders and only put toils, sweat and tears back to them.

Now, the authorities are answering back with the military, trying to stop people from monitoring or even documenting the riots. The President have forgotten why he supposedly liberated people, to actually free them, not torment them as he does today. That is what is happening.

The people are the losers, as they are still under siege and the riots has to continue, as the soldiers and Presidential Guards had the capacity to contain the riots. But this is a sign, that the people are tired and answering back to the President and his army. They are not afraid and starting. Even as they are still humiliated and arrested by him for doing.

The acts of Nasser Road today, should be moment, where you see how the supposed “freedom fighter” gave way to be the tormentor of every single citizen if he has too. Peace.

African Centre for Media Excellence Condemns Attacks on Journalists (20.08.2018)

More Merciless spin from President Museveni: “Security forces should be commended for Arua”

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni are on the verge of mental headbanging the youth, the people and everyone who is loyal to him. The Arua By-Election and the days after have shown the state violence and stay bullets hitting anyone from Parliamentary Guard in Kampala to Football Fans in Mityana. Therefore, it is a bit rich, that he continues blaming the unarmed civilians, while his army and his security organizations are shooting and killing people.

President Museveni are showing his ignorance and lack of understanding. He cannot run away from the reality, which he cannot propaganda this and win. That time has left the building since he abolished the term limits. Now he continues blaming anyone else. This time not explaining the health of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, but says it was a group who planned to terrorize Arua. If that wasn’t the Special Force Command who shot people and not the people of the Opposition? That isn’t something the President can now cover up. He can try, but we will not forget that.

Part I:

The problem in Arua was caused by Bobi Wine’s group together with Kassiano Wadri, who attacked me, a useless action because I am protected and I can defend myself. The more serious issue is these chronically indisciplined people attacking women and children, destroying people’s property etc. Who is Bobi Wine or anybody to beat our people and for what? Watch the videos of Jinja and Bugiri, which are attached to this post. Should that happen in Uganda and why? If the Army had not intervened in Arua, a lot of people would have been killed by this Bobi Wine group. They had gathered stones, knives and there were reports of even guns. Why is it that we have never heard of any incident where the NRM supporters have ever attacked the Opposition supporters? Do you remember how the Bobi Wines were attacking the other MPs in Parliament? Are we to allow them to attack the Wanainchi in similar ways? How about assaulting soldiers or policemen? Do you remember the policeman, Ariong, who died from a stone throw? The security forces should be commended for saving mass deaths in spite of the fact that many of them were not equipped for anti-riot” (Museveni, 2018).

I look forward seeing the old man with the hat going into the streets and against the riots. Standing there and taking charge. Since, he seems more entitled to some of his estates. Than actually protecting and defending himself. He thinks he is Napoleon Bonapart, but he gotten into exile. Maybe, that is time for this old man too. As his ghost-stories and weird stories doesn’t make sense. As the supposed healthy Bobi Wine are able to rattle these people, while his car was perfectly damaged in Arua and driving the next in Kampala. Should commend people for shooting live rounds at unarmed civilians? What sort of mad-man does that? That is only someone who doesn’t value other people’s life you like you.

Part II:

His mistake may be to organize and participate in such a violent procession and to import illegal voters. The court will decide according to the evidence. Stop supporting impunity, stop supporting election cheating, stop supporting violence whatever side you are on. As already said above, I am investigating the circumstances of the driver of Bobi Wine who died. Five people were also reported in hospital with gun- wounds. We shall get the circumstances of those cases. In certain circumstances, the Police can use live bullets if they are not equipped with anti-riot equipment and the rioters are on the verge of killing innocent people. That is also possible. The question is: “Why do you riot? Why not use legitimate and peaceful ways of expressing your opinion?” When they stoned my car, what was the reason? If they could be so reckless to attack me, how would they spare the poor Wanainchi? Good enough, my protection force did not respond immediately. They delivered me to the helicopter and went back to rescue the Wanainchi, which they generally did in spite of the circumstances. That is why no local mwanainchi was killed by the hooligans. They did not have enough time to do the damage they intended” (Museveni, 2018).

Why are you claiming a violent procession was appearing now, when there was no reporting by the fake media doing so? When there was no official violence or any sort of ill activity until the Presidential Guards hit the scene and blasted fire against the ones you saw fit? What about Mr. President? Do you see how your malice and ignorance for facts are going?

Like when have you cared for the ones killed of the opposition or rallies in general. We still have no real answer for what happen to Andrew Kayiira? When will that be delivered. Not like you care for the opposition or the wannachi, unless, they are useful pawns for donor aid or for fixing the polls. The rest of the time, they linger like old stenching fish. You can make up stories, but that doesn’t make sense.

Part III:

To destroy property by throwing stones is not acceptable. To disenfranchise Ugandans by importing illegal voters from other areas is tantamount to treason because it overthrows the power of the people in the given area to elect their leaders. If you do not see these as problems, then you are a fascist. The Security forces must be commended because they saved mass deaths by dispersing these misguided people without using rifle fire, considering the fact that many of them were not equipped for anti- riot duties notwithstanding” (Museveni, 2018).

In the fight for justice against the injustice of Museveni, we are called pseudo-intellectual, terrorist and now also fascist. This for accepting throwing stones. However, I am not for violence of any kind. Especially not manufactured nonsense his PR Team has made. While the real violence from his authorities and his security organizations are killing and destroying people’s lives. His orders and the ones in his militarism is the ones that prolonging the tyranny in the Republic.

So, maybe take more responsibility for the pains you have caused to Bobi Wine, all of the others MPs and the families of the ones hurt in the recent days. Because, your blaming everyone else. It is tiring and without mercy. Peace.

Merciless spin from President Museveni: Claims Bobi Wine is healthy and indisciplined!

If you know, you know”Pusha T.

Greetings. Some days have gone by while what President Trump calls “fake news” generators, especially the Monitor and their TV, the NTV, have been putting it out that our grandson, the indisciplined Bobi Wine, is gravelly ill, he cannot talk etc. They were putting it out that because of their “rough” handling of the MPs while arresting them, the Security forces could have done grievous damage to Bobi Wine. I decided to check with Army doctors because, being a disciplined Army, UPDF doctors always take precautions in such situations. Bobi Wine had already been seen by doctors in Arua, Gulu and Kampala. He has no head or chest injuries or bone fractures, they informed me” (Museveni, 2018).

Why are you lying Mr. President, when his own lawyers letter on the 18th August 2017 have stated together with the Uganda Human Rights Commission. That Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine have a damaged kidney, he is suffering from internal bleeding, he has pain in his hips and head, as his detention is at the Makindye Military Barracks, where they don’t have dialysis or the X-Ray to look into the illnesses of Bobi Wine. Why are you lying today? What are trying to do? What is your goal with this?

The biggest problem is political leaders like Kassiano Wadri and Bobi Wine forming, or allowing indisciplined groups to be formed under the cover of elections, groups that form illegal processions in built-up and heavily populated areas, carrying stones, up-rooting side walk pavers to use as missiles, to attack defenceless women, children and other civilians” (Museveni, 2018).

All the clips of tape and following of the Presidential Convoy shows nothing of what you speak off. There was no violence, until the Special Force Command or the Presidential Guards starting to blaze up Arua. As the vile attempt of cover-up continues and you continue to blame the citizens. Not looking into the own guards. Which you defended in the last go-around, that they only resorted to live bullets. Because you they didn’t have anything else. What is wrong with you?

Do you know that people we’re shot today too in Mityana, or the ones hurt in the riots in Kampala in the last few days? Even, do you even care to mention the dead driver of Bobi Wine, which you never even seem to declare anything about. How dare you make up stories yourself! Do you even care about these citizens at all?

Anybody who is a friend of the young politicians like Bobi Wine should advise them that short cuts like cheating, importing voters, intimidating the voters of the other side, ballot stuffing etc will lead them and Uganda to doom. That is what the young politicians of independence thought and did and it led to disaster” (Museveni, 2018).

Why more lies and deception, as you know very well of your making? You are the king-pin of rigged elections. Kiggundu math is a thing because of you, Mr. President. You always counter-claim with similar efforts when you are losing. Because they didn’t follow your guidelines. Mr. President, you are leading the nation to disaster, you are killing the youth and the generations surrounding it. The Police are acting as goons, the Special Force Command means to the polls and changes of laws in Parliament, than even the lawmakers. That shows your intent. With texts like the one you dropped today.

You show, that your reckless, relentless and have no heart for your Republic. I’ll be illdisciplined and be one of the friends of doom. Since what you are serving is collective punishment and injustice at epic proportions. I’ll be a pseudo-intellectual as long as I never represents or supports you kind. Which have no trouble using the arms and guns on civilians, who has no trouble using the Police to create criminals, instead of fighting thieves. As long as you are stealing the future, there will not be better tomorrow. You think you put out statements like this and vindicate yourself?

This isn’t 1986. This is 2018. If you know, you know.

The illdisciplined will come after you and your legacy will forever remembered for how you did this and all the others. All the skeletons and all the hurt you have done. We will not forget. Your as evil as the ones you overthrow back-in-the-day. Peace.

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘We shall not allow violence in elections’ 19.08.2018 link: https://www.yowerikmuseveni.com/blog/museveni/we-shall-not-allow-violence-elections

President Museveni warns the ghetto youth: While the Presidential Guards was torturing the Ghetto President!

Those in the ghetto, if you want to get out of ghetto, listen to what NRM is telling you. I was in the ghetto, in Katwe, in 1968, fighting Obote and Amin” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 17th August 2018.

Now, as the President has detained, tortured, arrested, frozen the account and who knows what sort of damage of the body of Robert Kyagulanyi, he went to the Ghettos to spread his positive narrative. That you all have to follow the President and not listen to the Ghetto President, Bobi Wine. That is why he went there now, as he knows what he has done. Therefore, the damage control of the President Museveni is to tell the usual story. Follow me. Follow my guidelines and know that I have all the answers.

That is what has appeared, as several MPs are in dire straits, as their lives in a worry and the dept of despair is not yet certain. But all of that is on his command and after the Presidents will. He has the force, he used his tricks and used his army to toil their desperation. Therefore, he knows perfectly well, how to get them out of it and out of danger. However, he keeps them as hostages and prays for their fall. It seems, as their journey into brutal injustice continues.

That is why in the midst of all that, he goes to the youth of ghettos of Kampala, which he meet this Friday on a ceremony and told them to listen. They have to follow him and NRM. If they ever want to get out. He has the message and he is the way out. NRM is the solution. It is so rich, that the one who has kept them poor and haven’t offered them development for 32 years. Are coming there and telling the youth to listen.

This while the new politician of their generation Bobi Wine is in uncertain territory and who knows if he is at the Makindye Military Barrack or airlifted somewhere else. Because there is speculation, but nothing is certain at this point. What is known, is that his fate is the hands of the President and that NRM.

That the youth and the people of the ghetto are supposed to listen too. Even if they don’t deliver or serve them anything. The NRM that hasn’t even tried to be there or act like it exists. But now that they have the Ghetto President behind bars. The President has to lecture them and tell them the way. How insulting right?

Why should they listen to the NRM?

So that they don’t get tortured, don’t get arrested and don’t get their mobile money revoked?

What has the NRM given the ghetto which is sustainable?

Not much and now he offers them a stern warning.

What is wrong with this man?

Who knows, but his mind and his rhetoric is not fitting the bill. When someone who represents the Ghettos are in dire need and is in his custody. Peace.

Where are those other arrested MPs? Aftermath from the Arua By-Election!

Where is Paul Mwiru, Gerald Karuhanga, Kassiano Wadri and at what state is Francis Zaake? All of this men have been in limbo since the Arua By-Election. Not only Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. All of these men has been tortured, harassed and detained at various locations. These men combined with other opposition activists, which all was taken in the mere days of polls on the 15th August and the aftermath continues.

It is like the authorities thinks we forgetting about the other Members of Parliament, as their fate is uncertain, while the health condition of Francis Zaake and Bobi Wine is uncertain. The lack of reports and knowledge of the others isn’t a good state either. They could be in Gulu or in Arua. Even airlifted to somewhere else. To a godforsaken prison in Moroto. Because the regime likes to act like the colonial powers did to their enemies. That is what the President and his henchmen does. With training from North Korea and their torturing techniques. There is enough soldiers that has gone through that training over the years, to have the ability to scorn a mans life.

So where is Paul Mwiru?

So where is Gerald Kauhanga?

So where is Kassiano Wadri?

So where is Michael Mabikke?

What health care is planned for Zaake?

What health care is planned for Bobi Wine?

What is your initial plan, other than torture, arrest and creating an uncertain future for these legislators. As they deferred your will and ensured another By-Election loss in Arua. That has certainly hit the pride of the President. Which put him into a frenzy and has since then ordered mayhem and destruction over the ones crossing his path. That is initially how it looks. We can wonder, if all these lives and the costs. Would be to much for the President to swallow, as the reactions and possible outcome, would become overbearing. The public would become tired of the militarism and the intimidation of the President. That is only for time to tell.

What we do need to know, is where is these legislators and how are they?

We know the limbo of life concerning Zaake and Kyagulanyi, but not the rest. Peace.
