Go-Forward meet hardships in Kaabong; Plus election violence towards the Go-Forward/TDA in the rest of the country

Amama Kaabong 5th Jan 2015

Today the Go-Forward Group and the TDA Joint Presidential Candidate have been in hot water all day. Yesterday in Northern Uganda there we’re rumors and reports about booing him and making mockery of him while on stage because of his deliverance in NRM government. That is not something I will focus on, because with his history in mind. It is understandable, wish they would do the same to Mzee though! But then they the Police and Crime Preventers would make issues so understand their silence when he entered the town in Karamoja. I wish I was writing something profound and deep, meaningful and giving. Instead I litter of the sadness and tragedy that follows the Go-Forward and the TDA supporters and team.

Amama Kaabong 5th Jan 2015 P2

Today in Kabong Town in Kaabong district the public and citizens we’re expected and told to wear NRM t-shirts. While the town and people knew that Amama Mbabazi we’re expected to hold a campaign rally there. DPC Peter Cherome has made his people busy today and the forcing the public to wear NRM clothes is just the beginning.

Well, Amama Mbabazi tried to visit Kidepo National Park, but the Police blocked it and closed it. So he could not check the conservation and resettlement of the animals in the National Park. That is not allowed I suppose! Yeah, it is not a prayer house? Not a school? Not a, well, house with sick people called Hospital! So why can’t and where is the rules from the Electoral Commission or Police stopping his movement? Please explain?

Museveni Kalibi Kabale 05.01.2016

This morning in Kabale this happen:

“Hon. Stephen Kalibba, the former Prime Minister for Tooro Kingdom, and former Member of Parliament who has been Go Forward Cordinator for Tooro and Rwenzori sub-regions has defected to NRM”.

Yesterday in Bukedea district:

The Amama Mbabazi aid in Bukedea district we’re attacked and flocked by local NRM supporters and badly hurt. The pictures of the man are spreading online; the sadness of how the NRM-Regime goes against their opposition. I will not show the picture, but think the story should be told!

Reports from Amudat yesterday:

“Currently happening in Amudat one of the districts from Karamoja region the mobilizers of Hon. Amama Mbabazi have been identified and bundled in different cars including Police cars forcefully now crossing to Kenya”.

Ntungamo 13.12.15

In Ntungamo and aftermath of the clashes in the town last year:

“Eleven supporters of independent Presidential Candidate Amama Mbabazi who were charged with assault, causing grievous harm and malicious damage to property, have been remanded for seven more days at Ntungamo Central Prison, due to lack of sureties and legal representation” (…)”Seven of them were first remanded five days ago after pleading not guilty, to the charges presented to them before Grade One Magistrate Richard Ndangwa. The magistrate said he needed more time to peruse through documents tendered in court by their sureties before granting them bail”.

Amama Mbabazi Security Team involved in a car crash:

“Three people were this morning injured in an accident involving members of the Security Team accompanying Presidential Candidate Amama Mbabazi to Karamoja Sub region. The team was on the way to Kaabong and Abim districts where Mbabazi is expected to hold a rally this afternoon when their vehicle, a Toyota Super Custom, registration number UAT 654Z swerved off the road overturning three times”.

“No one showed visible injuries at first but three of them collapsed and were rushed to a nearby hospital back to Moroto,” said the former Director-General of Uganda’s External Security Organisation Mr David Pulko, now working as Mr Mbabazi’s campaign mobiliser.

Amama Kaabong 5th Jan 2015 P4

If you though this we’re worse. The planned campaign rally in Kabong town we’re blocked by Police and had to be held 70 kilometers away. This was happening today while the IGP Kale Kayihura told about 600 peaceful campaign rallies during the election periods. Not about the dirty dozen actions of his police in opposition Presidential Candidates hardships to actually work during the so called harmonized and Election Road Map worked together with Badru Kiggundu’s The Electoral Commission. Well, Hon. Amama Mbabazi had to move his main campaign rally because the local Police Force decided to do him wrong and he had to have the campaign rally in Karenga.

There been too much sadness brought to the table. Amama Mbabazi finally getting the Dr. Kizza Besigye treatment and harassment; nobody wishes to get it or feel the pain of humiliation and following of the police and governmental forces together with NRM-Supporters in the districts. Therefore the violence and extent of viciousness coming forward is dramatic and this just 45 days before the polls and general election proves that the NRM can only win on intimidation and fear, not on certainty of their political craft.

2nd Update of the hardship of the Go-Forward which continued after the publish of this article! 

Amama Voice of Karamoja

Updated after first publish:

Amama Mbabazi we’re supposed to be attending and sharing his opinion on the Radio channel of Karamoja (Voice of Karamoja), but the Police continued their unbiased work and blocked him from entering the Radio’s premisis as the gentlemen of IGP Kale Kayihura usually do. Another proof of yet another type of place that other Presidential Candidates… can’t enter on their campaign trail. Be so very proud of your hardwork Police men in Northern Uganda hope you get your pay on time as teachers have struggled with in recent years in Uganda. Surely hope Mzee pays you well for tornmenting and harassing opposition candidates! Peace.  

New Years day campaign; interfered by the unpopular calavary

This first day of 2016, starts the campaign like the ending of 2015. Not surprisingly the Police are interfering in the Leaders of Opposition. Today both the FDC Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye has issues with the police. The same have the independent Go-Forward and TDA Joint Presidential Candidate Amama Mbabazi.

Karuma School 1.1.2016 FDC Pic

In Karuma the Police we’re out and we’re shutting down the hospital so that the FDC Candidate couldn’t enter the place. Also in the Karuma School the Police we’re guarding like a fortress and not letting the campaign convoy visit today.

Karuma School 1.1.2016 FDC Pic 2

While this is happening today the Police themselves want to prove seriousness and have put up a 20 Million shillings fee to those who can tell the where-about of Amama Mbabazi Bodyguard Christopher Aine today!

KaleKayihura

IGP Kale Kayihura Said this:

“Police has issued notice to the public appealing for any information as to his whereabouts so that we apprehend him to answer charges relating to the incidents of beatings in Ntungamo district. We have put a reward of Shs 20 million for anyone who can help Police with information leading to his arrest and prosecution”.

Today the Yellow Music Team in Gulu wants money from the NRM campaign team for their performances during the campaign trail. They are said to not be paid the amount of money they have been promised. Therefore they miss Shs7. Million from the NRM-O and their organizer of the campaign for Mzee.

AmamaNRMElection2016

Amama Mbabazi said this at Masindi Hotel today:

“I asked him what wrong Kanti had done by going to hospital. He told me he was taking pictures. That will be sorted out anyway, it will. But anyone has a right to go to anywhere and ask about the issues there. The policemen are good people but are working on orders of someone, Kale Kayihura. It’s unfortunate….”.

Kanti Rodgers has also been arrested; as so many other opposition figures have been taken to custody by the Police recently after the Ntungamo clashes.

Amama Mbabazi stormed the Masindi Police Station to get out the Go-Forward supporter who we’re jailed there today! He has done that before during the campaign trail and seems like have to do it again.

Endorsment NRM Poor Youth

POOR YOUTH BRIEFING.

Its 38 days to the end of M7’s 30 years leadership resulting in to social stagnation, sheer terror, misery, vicious cycle of humiliating poverty& unemployment. The poor youth are ready for change from dictator Museveni to Amama Mbabazi. The choice in 2016 is clear; change or more of the suffering. In special way I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.

Vote AMAMA.

NRM POOR YOUTH FORUM

God bless you all

Afterthought:

That we’re all for now, have a wonderful new year and let the campaign go smooth, we don’t need the endless violence and interference from the police until February 2016. Peace

A walk through the current election time in Uganda 2015

Mbabazi M7 Besigye

We are coming to the years end. In a little week we will kiss the new-year and touch 2016. What a day that will be! We have seen and felt in 2015 what politics do and does to society in Uganda. This would have sounded differently a few months ago. This is a quick current pre-view and I hope you don’t mind! 

NRM-ballot-boxes-599x250

The General Election is set for mid-February that means we have over 50 days still of campaigning. The Campaign rallies will feel a déjà vu at this point and would not be different unless the NRM, FDC or Go-Forward does any major stunt. The minor candidates are dwindling in the wind and are gone as quick as they set of at their nomination day.

Badru EC

The Chairman of the Electoral Commission got a heavy pay rise and earns now 35 Million shillings a month. That must be to settle the score for the government and secure the rigging system. We can’t not believe earning all of sudden 29 million more shillings a month comes for free and not with a price. He surely will pay Mzee back.

Ntungamo 13.12.15 Yellow

The IGP Kale Kayihura went into the Ntungamo after the clashes in the town. The reports we’re blaming NRM big-men and Police to taking charge against the Go-Forward Supporters at the venue. Gen. Kayihura has said after “he only went on orders”. We can also see a week or so after there have been arrested many of the leaders and campaign officials for Amama Mbabazi, but none of the NRM men. Later Mzee has promised to pay a sustainable fee to the NRM-Supporters who was hurt, but not the others and it was 1, 5 million shillings each to mend their wounds.

FDC Convoy Attack 22.12.2015 P1

We can also see how the Police get more and more violent on the campaign trail. There been attacks by NRM men towards the FDC convoy when they trailed the north. Deputy Speaker Oulanyah was in charge of the men standing off towards the FDC and their convoy. Nothing has happen ever since that happened. The FDC has had stand-off near Fort Portal and in Gulu with no feedback from Authorities on the matters. The Go-Forward have also had issues in Northern Uganda. The police interfere and also shut down venues as they feel. They are interfering into politics more than the UPDF Members of Parliament do!

Rhino Health Care Arua 29.12.15 P4

On the 29th December a traditional day of rallying the FDC convoy got violent meeting with police while going to Rhino Camp Health Care facility in Madi. The Go-Forward aspirant Bright Muhumuza we’re supposable jailed in Ntungamo for his involvement in the Ntungamo clashes. While this was happen around the NRM who we’re sending men door to door in Kalangala and offering the people 500 meager shillings to shun the rallies of Go-Forward Amama Mbabazi. This is just another day in the democratic nation of Uganda.

Elton Joseph Mabirizi 17.11.15

An Independent Candidate Elton Joseph Mabirizi was early on the campaign trail taken and kidnaped. He we’re returned after that but his campaign has been silent and not made fuzz since.

NRM PRimaries Pre Ticket

We have seen the NRM Primary Elections which have been fraudulent and tragic events, not only for the losers, but for the party in general. Hard to take serious with the magnificent missteps and arrogance not only from Dr. Tanga Odoi and the other men running it. Okay that Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba can be mad and or whatever potion she is on to save face, still the NRM looks weak and foolish. The Unnecessary violence, rigging and bribing makes it looks a picked race from the get-go not a fully-democratic-exercise where the NRM members decided who is their favorite, instead sole candidacy and a few fallen Minsters are the outcome and NRM looks weaker than before, instead of a strong force behind their almighty Mzee.

NRM UPC Arua 16.11.15

The Uganda People Congress has had their wrangles before the up-coming general elections. First with the issues within the opposition alliance TDA or The Democratic Alliance! This shows that the TDA-wrangle proved to have split leadership something have been brewing for a while. Ever since Jimmy Akena became the President in the Party in November 2014 there has been issues. This been visible with the former-president Olara A. Otunnu who has led the party for a decade before, the wrangle led to the UPC going out of the TDA alliance as they picked their common presidential candidate and FDC went out of the TDA a little later as well. The UPC went further with their trail in this elections, the new leadership has lost in court and have to give back to Otunnu, even though Akena will reaffirm the party with a new National Council and get his position as president again. This is not the only thing Akena has been doing. They have no Presidential Candidate and pulled out of TDA. Therefore he has gone and done something that would be unheard and should be unheard of since looking at the history of the party, the UPC has gone into alliance and will collaborate with the NRM in the General Election, there been reports of decent pay-off to Akena, and that would surprise me or anybody else for that matter, but the legacy of his father is really vomiting on.

Mao Masaka Mbabazi 091115

The DP and Norbert Mao have also gone into a strange state. The UPC is two of many parties this time that doesn’t have a presidential candidate. Norbert Mao have been a vital part of the TDA and is as a rare breed, a President of a Party and not officially running for MP in his constituency even if he have been running there since the 90s. There must be somebody grinning in Gulu knowing that UPC and NRM can take the spot. The DP have weaken themselves with the alliance. They need a good result from Go-Forward Presidential Candidate to eat well and see the fruition of the alliance. Neither or they looks stupid with their loss of their main candidate. They have also missed their prime candidate in Kampala Erias Lukwago who have gone independent and is supporting Dr. Kizza Besigye for presidency instead of Mbabazi. Therefore the DP is struggling and will not be seen as a vital part or piece in the election. They will be more a tool in the tool-box for the TDA instead of strong force anywhere.

Police in Bugiri 21.10.15

If we go a bit back in time again, there been steady spread of fear and fear-mongering from Mzee. Something that I have seen all 2015! We can see that with the condition, that he is the only one who can control the UPDF; that is the definition of spreading fear.

Amama Mbabazi Masindi Police Station 27.12.15

There will be more empty promises from the NRM-Regime, be more police interference in the coming elections and after since they have promised much more money since they gotten post-election violence money.

There is too much who is wrong. There might be European Monitoring team of the election period in Uganda, but doesn’t seem to stop the violations from the central government. The only one who let it be peaceful in November was the expected and two-days of papal visit in Kampala and to the martyrs resting place. After that the Police and NRM have gone back to normal. The only one with some peace and only some attention from the Police is the FDC presidential Candidate.

Lukwago-Eria

The mayoral candidates of Kampala Erias Lukwago have also met strong opposition from the local community and police in the city. That might happen again. I would not be surprised. It is natural that they support the NRM candidate.  I am sure that the EC and KCCA have a plan to upset and cut the grip on the public that Lord Mayor Lukwago have on Kampala.

We will see more foolishness during election time and until February! The NRM-Regime and their forces can’t help themselves! They have a natural talent to throw BS towards the leaders of opposition. Still waiting to see one of the Presidential Candidate in prison or get preventative-arrest. The interesting thing is how little use there been of Public Order Management Act that been used more than toilet-paper by the Ugandan Police in recent times. We will see how it goes and how they will behave. We will also see how the NRM-Regime will continue to accept the FDC progress and the public acceptance of the Go-Forward campaign. We can’t expect it since it’s against the normalcy of the arrogance of Mzee and his loyal paid-off cronies. Peace!

Third time arrested in 2015: Bright Muhumuza!

Bright Muhumuzi

There is a guy who is famous in Mbarara, he was one of the guys who apparently robbed a bank while demonstrating against the regime. He must be a drifty guy since the Police is yet again detaining him today.

Last time he was one of a crew who was supposable behind the robbery in middle of Mbarara the same day they demonstrated. Today he got the same destiny. He was detained again as it happen in September 2015. The Government and local Police Force must hate his guts. Or that he is a vital supporter and organizer for Amama Mbabazi in the area. That must be the vital and key information and intelligence that CP Fred Enanga would say in an interview why they have conducted this actions against him. His crime is to be affiliated with the wrong political leader. Nothing else! He was also arrested in June 2015 for following Amama Mbabazi and standing by his precidency for those of you who might have forgotten that!

AmamaNRMElection2016

Bright Muhumuza a political aspirant for Go-Forward in Mbarara has ended up today in Ntungamo Police Station and Joseph Kiiza tries as we speak to get a Police bond on the Political activist and hopeful.

The CIID in Ntungamo Bosco Gume said: “Bright Muhumuza has been among those wanted by police over the Ntungamo clashes”. That proves how far the NRM-Regime goes to catch others and not inquiry on their own men after the clashes.

What Bright Muhumuza said 4 days ago:

“Going by today’s crowd, Besigye would be the president of Uganda but we all know who will be announced victorious though I am Amama Mbabazi’s die-hard”.

Hope this is enough news on the matter today, but proves how much and how impartial the Uganda Police Force is and by whom it is run, that the orders from IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura follows the words of Mzee and take everybody else then the perpetrators to save face of their own, even if they are the one that threw the gasoline on the fire and made it blast. Instead the Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi supporters get behind bars as they are the worst people of men kind. This is happening while the NRM men and supporters are payed for violent behavior as promised by Mzee. Something that is initially wrong and the world know this! Peace.

Go-Forward get into trouble in Masindi and Bulisa today

Masindi Go-Forward 27.12.15

Today have been a tough day for the Go-Forward Group and it started with hassle where they had issues in Masindi. But the first start is how Mzee serves his men in Ntungamo.

In Ntungamo after the clashes the Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi Team has been handled by the UPF and security agents. Now Mzee says he will compensate the NRM-Supporters with 1, 5 Uganda Shillings. This will go to the ones that we’re injured in the skirmishes and they we’re the one that was in charge of violence ironically.

Public Address System Go-Forward Compond 27.12.15

Early in the Morning in Masindi before the rally the Police confiscated his Public Address System. And the Stadium where the Campaign Rally we’re set as a venue we’re shut down by the Police as well.

Go-Forward Truck Driver Jailed 27.12.15

Also the Go-Forward Truck driver meets with DPC Bakashaba and was jailed while driving campaign material towards the Campaign rally. Amama Mbabazi had to pick up the Public Address System and the Truck Driver in the prison in Masindi. And we’re released both the truck and the driver after inquiry to the matter at the Masindi Police Station.

Amama Mbabazi Masindi Police Station 27.12.15

In Bullisa there became more issues for the Go-Forward because the boda-boda drivers we’re promised monies from the local coordinator to drive people before the campaign rallies. They we’re promised fuel money and weren’t delivered. Because of this they first went house to house to find the local coordinator who promised monies. Couldn’t find him; therefore they ended up blocking the roads towards the campaign venue. The Police to disperse the boda-boda drivers they threw tear-gas into the crowd.

Road-Block from Boda Boda Go-Forward 27.12.15

Later in Semuto near the Hospital there, the Hospital have been shut down by the police and sealed it off from any politician. That is because Amama Mbabazi is not to “disturb the sick”.

The rallies of Amama Mbabazi ended late because of the boda-boda troubles of the day and also the Police actions in Masindi. The Campaign trail will continue. It was later proved that the man promising the monies to the Boda-Boda drivers we’re not a part of the Go-Forward Campaign Team so the Boda-Boda people we’re tricked! Peace.

President Museveni on ‪Ntungamo Clashes (Youtube-Clips)

“”Thugs attacked NRM supporters. They are being rounded up, you cannot attack Ugandans. How can you attack NRM supporters in Uganda?. They’ll regret it” (NBS TV Uganda, 2015).
