Kabarole Clashes: Guns and Machetes Recovered (Youtube-Clip)

“Security has been beefed up in kabarole district as a joint operation of the police and UPDF continues a search for dissidents believed to be in the hideouts in the hills a day after eight were killed in a shoot out
Bodies of those killed have been retrieved and guns and machetes recovered” (NTV Uganda, 2016)

Here are some of the current issues in Uganda; my quick opinion on them without organizations or order; just as my mind is adressing them; from Yiira Republic to Sipi Falls, until the Butabika Hospital and so on.

Opondo Museveni

We all know lots of things is happening as the Police Force is monitoring every movement of the Opposition and closer than ever before. The squad cars and the flying squad is more active than the government facilities in the country. There is only one brain who speaks to motion of the Don, which is Ofwono Opondo who I am soon think is a blood brother of Museveni; because they are two people, but they are argument and ideas are just the same. If not then the Don have messed with the mind of Opondo and made into his clone. Something he did not manage with Tamale Mirundi, but Mirundi is shooting at everybody like a AK47 does, and Opondo knows that. Therefore he sounds like you Don. Museveni, but let’s look at the current things that are clearly active issue after this rigged elections.

Rwenzori and Rwezori Sub-Region and the Yiira Republic it must stain the mouth of Mzee to utter those words. Yiira Republic of the proud mountain tribes of Rwenzori, eh! The one nation resurrected every time there is violence in the area. Kind of like every time Louis Suarez, Neymar or Messi scores the trio of MSN works to perfection for the Catalonian team of FC Barcelona.

FDC Besigye 05.04.2016

The newly insurgents in Kasese and Rwenzori Sub-Region have claimed to work for this Yiira Republic, that preposterous idea that have no substance. That Don Museveni even claims that Dr. Kizza Besigye have promised the locals this, is not true, even Dr. Kizza Besigye says so at once on his Facebook status. And it is not strange, when the Yiira Republic is a made up NRM needed excuse for militia works in the region. To put blame on locals instead of taking in the Police Force who has been killing royal guards of the Rwenzururu Kingdom. But that will not happen, as they are associates and close connected in some ways to the NRM Mafia.

There are some wonder of the word, there is Sipi Falls and Murchinson Falls, and ten there are the Karuma Dam who is not well-made at construction, so before opening the grand project the issue of the construction are falling apartand that happens from the get-go. That can only be seen as symbolic relic of the empty promises of the current regime. The contractors have not worked well for the state and delivered quality construction.

Karuma Dam Project

The Regime have been loose on the money as the UNRA have fired most of their staff recently as the World Bank suspended most of their budget support for their road buildings during late 2015. So there been reported that the Kampala Northern Bypass the new extension of the carriageway was set to cost $2,5m per kilometre instead it cost $9,4m shows the placement of government funds and the NRM Regime let the contractors easily eat the money without any consequence. But hey, this is not a monumental dam, where the construction is weak and not well made.

Kasangati 01.03.2016 FDC Leaves Cars

The Ugandan Government cannot help them to attack Dr. Kizza Besigye of the FDC. He is the main target first for offering the Rwenzori the Yiira Republic, which was made as a suggestion and proposal from the kingpin of Museveni. Second attack on him personally was from CP Fred Enaga of the Uganda Police Force, who claim that Besigye disobey Police Orders because of the Illegal Procession. If you read the Police Bond it was saying a “Illegal Prossession” which I am not sure what is a “Prossession”. If Besigye was in a Pros-Session like skaters usually are in the U.S. then he would skate away from the matter, something CP Fred Enaga should do. Since they have more to answer, as Besigye was illegally under house-arrest for over 40 days, when the laws of Uganda, gives it max over 40 hours! 40 hours is like 2 days in my calculation, and means that the Uganda Police Force have violated Dr. Kizza Besigye for over 38 days and CP Fred Enaga, IGP Kale Kayihura and the Don Museveni should ask for forgiveness for their hatred towards Besigye and the political party of the FDC.

Cobalt-Machine

You also have Cobalt 60 Teletherapy Machine have been down for a month at Mulago Hospital Complex at the Ugandan Cancer Institute. And there issues are the neglect and missing funds for the supposed building and procurement of the new Cancer machine for Chemotherapy and happen to be the only one in Uganda, and it has not gotten any new since 1995. There only been slight repairs while the patients are expected to be charged 30,000 shillings for going there. Still, there are no funds for getting a new machine, even if there been steady funds and a procurement already paid for. There is someone who is eating the money that was supposed to facilitate the cancer sick!

There isn’t only Dr. Jackson Orem of Mulago who is working under torn mechanical issues, even at Butabika Hospital Director David Basangwa told Parliament today that their 400m shilling machine broke down last month. But this is just scratching an itch for the ruling regime, as they recently fixed more money, but not for the health care that has dire need for it!

Kayihura Kasese Bundibugyo 24.03.2016

As recently the Uganda Police Force have been lucky for their great work of keeping Besigye under siege in Kasangati and gotten supplementary budget of 34 Billion Shillings in the 2015/2016; then there is the Ministry of Defense gotten the supplementary Budget of 253 Billion Shillings in the 2015/2016. State House because of being broke after using the funds for the Presidential Campaign and buying votes they got supplementary Budget of 21 Billion Shillings in the 2015/2016. This is not enough for the President as he has not eaten enough yet, therefore the Office of the President getting also supplementary budget of 8.6 Billion Shillings in the 2015/2016.

You also have the fight for the Speaker in the Parliament under the 10th Parliament that is for the Rebecca Kadaga and the Jacob Oulanyah works both to become Speaker and Kadaga as Incumbent feels that she is deserves to be it again. While again Hon. Sam Kuteesa says he doesn’t want the special chair and respected position there. As Hon. Kuteesa are happy to be an unopposed MP for the NRM this coming term. Certainly there will be some action between Jacob and Rebecca as they both wants the Nobel task in Parliament.

Museveni Debate16

There will be happening more of this; because the NRM can’t help not to deliver to other things than to their Executive, their paid elite and again praise the Don! On his quest through the playground and total control of the Government of Uganda and their funds; with his racketeering through the NRM and hope to be not questioned how he does use the funds or take it when he needs. Peace.

Press Release: MRG calls on Uganda government to investigate cause of escalating violence in Rwenzori region (04.04.2016)

Kasese attack

Minority Rights Group International (MRG) expresses grave concern about recent clashes between the Bamba-Babwisi and Bakonzo communities in the Rwenzori region, and calls on the Ugandan government to investigate the root causes of the conflict.   The violence has left at least 33 dead, 10,000 displaced and 366 houses burnt.

The first attacks broke out following the declaration of local council election results on 27 February, although many brushed them off as simply post-election violence. However, despite heavy police and military deployment, the killings have continued, with victims including a 13 year-old in Kanyansiri village in Bundibugyo district.

Addressing a press conference, President Yoweri Museveni told media that although his government had never deployed the army to quell a tribal conflict, he was going to now do so.

‘While we understand the President’s urgency to solve this problem, a military solution treats the symptoms not root causes. There is need for genuine dialogue among communities in conflict, mediated by a team of experts,’ says MRG Africa Office Manager, Agnes Kabajuni.

The events playing out in Rwenzori replicate a scenario in 2014, when violence between communities claimed 72 lives.

According to MRG, the causes of the current conflict in Rwenzori date back many decades.

For instance, to solve the Rwenzururu war, a guerilla campaign waged by both the Bakonzo and Bamba to gain recognition and secede from Toro Kingdom, then President Idi Amin negotiated a settlement to create Rwenzori District for the Bakonzo, Semliki District for the Bamba and Kabarole District for the Batoro.

Charles Wesley Mumbere

The Rwenzururu Kingdom, now comprising Bundibugyo, Kasese and Ntoroko districts has since the 1980s established itself as a movement which has continued to pose a serious threat to central government control. In order to calm the ethnic tensions in the region, the government in March 2008, after a ministerial committee recommendation, endorsed the Kingdom of Rwenzururu as a cultural institution headed by King Mumbere.

However, the decision to endorse Rwenzururu Kingdom was done with no prior and adequate consultation of both tribes in Kasese and Bundibugyo, pre-empting demands for recognition of other tribes like Basongora, Banyabindi and Bamba.

‘It is telling to see two groups, which have long co-existed and intermarried, now fighting with each other. At a political level, the government has to facilitate a genuine mediation process involving the Bakonzo under the Rwenzururu Kingdom and the Bamba cultural institution in order that they may peacefully co-exist once more,’ says Kabajuni.

‘As a long term strategy,’ argues Kabajuni, ‘the government has to address the economic marginalization of the communities in the Kasese, Bundibugyo and Ntoroko Districts, caused by historical injustices relating to land, equality, decision-making and economic opportunities for all tribes.’

Another Obusinga Bwa-Rwenzururu Royal Guard gunned down (Youtube-Clip)

Obusinga Bwa-Rwenzururu royal guard has been shot dead today near Sauriyako market in Kasese town and one arrested by Security operatives.

“Juma Miliki now behind bars is on police wanted list over a suspected gang that killed a policeman in Kidodo” Polly Namaye said.

About the Deceased:

“Police has said the deceased is called Yozefu Mugoye, a resident of Kihyo, Kitswamba sub-county and that he was shot when he was attempting to grab a gun from security operatives that were hunting for a one Juma Miliki who is suspected to be a member of a gang that killed a policeman in Kidodo recently. The deputy police spokesperson Polly Namaye told URN reporter that Juma Miliki is on a police wanted list who knows the whereabouts of the gun stolen from the Kidodo incident. Namaye added that the deceased was found with a package of black stones and small sticks tied on the legs suggesting defensive charms plus Obusinga Royal Guards identity cards. She added that the deceased died on his way to Kilembe hospital due to over bleeding. But in a press briefing this afternoon at Buhikira Royal Palace, Omusinga wondered how a royal guard who had just been sent to buy food in the market ended up being shot in unclear circumstance.  The King said that some recently sacked kingdom officials are conniving with yet-to-be identified groups of people to target and kill other kingdom workers. Mumbere mentioned Benon Mahighura, Sualit Kule, Yosufu Kiduha, Joshua Mwami and Noah Nzaghale with UPDF that was sacked lance corporal Edmon Baluku among those giving security officials what he termed wrong information. “Time is now to take care all Banya-Rwenzururu, because they want to kill us all, someone unarmed but you be killed” King said.
He added that the royal guard was shot in his way to buy food from the market after being given 200000 shillings” (Umbrella For Journalists In Kasese, 31.03.2016).
