Opinion: Opposing the NRM is apparently going against God…

Leadership comes from God. All those opposing the government are going against God’s will”Rogers Mulindwa (NBS TV, 02.01.2021).

The National Resistance Movement Spokesperson Rogers Mulindwa on the 2nd Day of 2022 has said these words. He has taken a deity and a using the transcending powers to get people to be loyal to the NRM and the Government of Uganda. I am sure God has bigger worries and better things to do.. than ensure people natural loyalty to any government on planet earth. As God almighty has to listen to all the pleas, prayers and acts of faith from all believers across the world. He should be preoccupied with healing hearts and taking care of the souls who wants to be redeemed. Alas, not worry about about opposition to Museveni or any of his party affiliates.

That’s why I have to drop some wise words from the Proverbs, since it seems a sensible way to prove my argument today:

12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men,

from men whose words are perverse,

13 who have left the straight paths

to walk in dark ways,

14 who delight in doing wrong

and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,

15 whose paths are crooked

and who are devious in their ways” (New international Version, Proverbs Chapter 2, 12-15).

It is wicked to think opposition to a tyrant and his tyranny is going against God. That is the wicked men and the false prophets, which Jesus spoke against. As Museveni and his kind speaks of peace, but deliver brutality and death. That’s why you know their acts aren’t sincere or within reason. It is just to stay in power.

We are now seeing NRM Spokesperson saying being in opposition to the government is against the will of God. Isn’t that making God a very tiny person and such? Why should we delight in the people who do us wrong and delivers evil? It shouldn’t be this easy, but the spokesperson is defending a government that uses violence, torture and arbitrary arrests of civilians. A government that plans to stop the opportunity for bail or bonds. So, we know law or justice isn’t a main concern for this government, neither is due process, as several of political prisoners are kept behind bars without any sincere action of the authorities.

That’s why, I feel more sorry for the plights and legal jeopardy the weak, the poor and the ones suffering, because of the government. It gives God more reasons to listen to them and help them. Instead of being there for the wicked, perverse and crooked government, which the spokesperson defends by any means. I am sure God prefers to be there and heal the suffering of which the government put on it’s citizens.

12 I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;

I possess knowledge and discretion.

13 To fear the Lord is to hate evil;

I hate pride and arrogance,

evil behavior and perverse speech.

14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine;

I have insight, I have power.

15 By me kings reign

and rulers issue decrees that are just;

16 by me princes govern,

and nobles—all who rule on earth” (New International Version – Proverbs Chapter 8, 12-16).

This proverbs here prove again what is wrong with the NRM and it’s government. As it’s Ministers, Head of State and everyone in office is arrogant. They are so proud and vicious. Yes, to fear the lord is to hate evil. However, what is righteous is to not be evil and participate in all acts, which God doesn’t prefer. Which we know the NRM and their leadership indulge in. Therefore, the bible itself is speaking up against the rulers and the government. The bible is opposing the NRM and it’s leaders. That should be a warning and their wicked ways should be exposed. That’s what the opposition does and it’s not offending God.

The opposition is actually showing it’s wisdom and is not following wicked men. That should be the reality of it all. However, don’t expect a spokesperson or anyone associated saying this. They will dismiss it and find some excuses to defend their actions. These folks don’t mind the civilians dying or the arbitrary arrests. As long as the evil deeds are not happening to them. Peace.

Will CJ Owiny Dollo circumvent the Constitutional rights of Bail by using his Constitutional Powers?

Today, there have been leaks of a Court Justice Alfonse Owiny Dollo has written a guidance, which will circumvent and guide judges to block “bail” for certain offences in the Republic. This is happening, as President Museveni and his allies have worked overtime trying to find ways of doing this. CJ Owiny Dollo would give way and make things easy by doing this. 

133. Administrative functions of the Chief Justice

  1. The Chief Justice—
  1. shall be the head of the judiciary and shall be responsible for the administration and supervision of all courts in Uganda; and
  2. (b)may issue orders and directions to the courts necessary for the proper and efficient administration of justice

(2) Where the office of the Chief Justice is vacant or where the Chief Justice is for any reason unable to perform the functions of his or her office, then until a person has been appointed to and has assumed the functions of that office or until the Chief Justice has resumed the performance of those functions, those functions shall be performed by the Deputy Chief Justice” (Constitution, 1995). 

We are seeing here that the CJ has the constitutional power to guide and issue orders for proper and efficient administration of justice. Alas, if CJ Owiny Dollo does this he needs the legal arguments and ramifications for his guidance. Since, he needs to prove if it is proper or within the current laws and efficient administration of justice. That is what CJ Owiny Dollo needs to do. As his the man who vouch for and supports this idea by signing his name into the guidance of the courts. 

Yes, this is giving way to the President who wants this change. As he wants the state to be more strict and use the leverage of law to punish his enemies even harder. This isn’t used to fight crime or criminals, no this change of laws will go after the political prisoners and activists who fight for justice and liberty. Which is ironic, as the ones who will be targeted by this change and guidance, are the prisoners of conscience and not career criminals with manslaughter, murder or being a serial killers. No, this will hit opposition MPs and the ones who have offended “the Don”. 

CJ Owiny Dollo will be this term Raphael Magyezi, as he intends to revise the Constitution in favour of the President. Owiny Dollo is willing to risk his name and everything his worked for. Just to serve the President and his whims. This isn’t to better the republic or make things more just. No, this is just the recent revision which fits the current state of affairs for the President. 

It is really foolish to do this, the President and his people are really shortsighted. As this will get applied to the opposition and dissidents right now. However, if the pendulum suddenly changes and the current elite is losing power. They could be the end of this stick and be punished with the same manner. This means the high ranking officials and their associates could be taken in and not be released in a timely fashion. Because, the President and National Resistance Movement (NRM) did this in 2021. So in 2026 or any other year the stakes might be different and the ones in power deserve to feel the pain they put on others. 

CJ Owiny Dollo should fear for the future if he is allowed to use his office to make this happen. It is just like former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi who ensured the Public Order Management Act (POMA) becoming a law, which was used against him when he stood as a Presidential Candidate. The law that he pushed got used against him. If someone finds something serious in the past of the CJ Owiny Dollo he could be detained without question. No only the men or leaders around Bobi Wine, but someone who used to be a token ally of Museveni. 

The end of bail will haunt this government. This tool will not only go against the current enemies of the state. No, this can be used against others too and give credence to keeping people behind bars without proper justice. As the state doesn’t have to produce or ensure proper proceedings, as the state can use without court orders or sentencing making people guilty. That the state does this to its citizens shows how far the dictator and the President are willing to go. As the law isn’t only battered on innocent civilians and dissidents, no the state is rigged against them, in such a manner that the Constitution doesn’t matter. Since, the latest CJ has given guidance, which is countering it. 

The ones sharing this on will possibly be backfired on. CJ Owiny Dollo can carry the water for His Excellency, but this will not clench his thirst. At some point of time, the President wants more than water and more than a cup of tea. He wants the bar and the side-dish. CJ Owiny Dollo is serving a purpose now, but if he doesn’t comply later. He will be stationed elsewhere or be retired… Peace.

The NRM are preparing to scrap bail permanently

Cabinet queues behind President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as they heed to his call for the lifting of the right to bail. Lawyers want wider public consultation on the same & strengthening of investigations by the security agencies rather than scraping off the right to bail” (Red Pepper Uganda, 16.10.2021).

The National Resistance Movement and President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni is all out and against the opportunity for bail before release of criminals in the Republic. This is clearly a plan to reform and again change the 1995 Constitution. However, this is setting a dangerous precedence, which could inflict harm on the ones enacting it.

What is striking here that one key principal of law is abolished by doing this. The state is practically implicating a person and saying they are guilty before trial. They are not innocent before proven guilty. The state can pin and put on charges on political prisoners and activists, which fits the penal code. Where the application for bail after per review of a judge isn’t needed. Alas, meaning the person is seen as a criminal and felon before even tested in the judiciary system. That is neglect of rule of law and injustice.

This is an deliberate act and a sinister one at it. The NRM and the President will with this have yet another legal tool to keep people indefinitely behind bars. As they can be charged with serious crimes of murder, manslaughter or treason. While being behind bars and not able to challenge it in the free world. They will be behind bars and not have access to attorneys or help. That will help the government to silence dissidents and the ones who are vocal against it.

We should be worried about it. The Constitution has been revised after wishes from the President before. That has been directly for selfish reasons and for his own benefit. Now, it is to prove his power and his whims. The Cabinet has no balls or ability to say “no”. They cannot say this wrong or even not right. These folks doesn’t have the spine, as they are “yes men” for the President. While these people could easily when fallen out of favour with the President be charged and taken to cout. They could suffer the consequences of this law. That wouldn’t be shocking. Neither would it be, if Odrek, Muhoozi or even Salim Selah could be touched by this one. They could all be victims of it and justifiably so.

The NRM is playing with fire. The state is already misusing the penal code and the justice system to crackdown on the opposition. It is already violating the Constitution and keeping people detained without trial, sentencing and tortured in ungazetted safe-houses. Political prisoners are kept for a year and even longer behind bars without any proof of their alleged crime. They were punished for insulting the Don. That’s all really and now they will have legal intent to keep it that way. This is really at a dire stage. There is no jokes here and only no mercy.

Museveni and the NRM have no heart. This sort of enacted law and change of constitution shows their way of governing. There is no middle-ground or concern, only the vision of man and his every wish. Museveni clearly cannot foresee the future and what this can cause. He can ensure innocent civilians are behind bars without proper procedure. Manufactured charges and they have no remedy to challenge the system. That’s what he wants and it’s tragic.

This is disgusting and disgraceful. Nobody should accept this. The NRM should know better, but clearly they don’t. The Cabinet is filled of cronies and puppets who dances to whatever song Museveni sings. That’s so sad and at this point it’s inevitable.

I just wonder, in his after life and Muhoozi Kainerubaga is behind bars on phony charges. Will he cry river from the clouds or will be giddy? Because, his manner and ways punished his son… that could easily happen as a retribution to all the years of tyranny of the father. Don’t be shocked if these things happen. That is how mankind is and revenge is a powerful sentiment. Never underestimate what people are willing to do after being scorned for years.

I know Museveni doesn’t consider that. His in advanced age and thinks his a demigod. However, he should reconsider this stance. We know that will not happen, but it would be refreshing. Peace.

FDC’s Ingrid Turinawe Statement after being released from the Unlawful Arrest of the Police and the Experience She had while being detained at Nakasongola Police Station (10.05.2016)

Nakasongala FDC Convoy 3.1.2015 P3

Very annoyed but not frustrated, very weak but not down, very hungry but not ready to eat, i resolved with courage and determination to die of hunger but not Poison. I was certain it was the only defiance Tool that would help me communicate my where a bouts with my People. For two days and two nights! I did not taste even a spoon of water in Nakasongola police cells. At the same time, I loudly demanded to eat and I wld only eat food From home.
Yesterday at around 11am An exchange, started, very hot and loud! It was between the ‘arresters’ and the ‘keepers’, issue was About the ‘kept’- ” come, take your woman away, or call her family to bring her food, or else we release her to go now. We cannot keep a suspect who is not eating, not in our custody! She will not die Here”

Nakasongala FDC Convoy 3.1.2015 P2

I overheard this Exchange which went on repeatedly . At midnight, the arresters arrived.. I did not even imagine a whole trained Police officer at the rank of DPC would open a female cell to hand her over to some goons at such time. I protested and opted to remain with my hunger as mosquitoes feed on me than enter that van. This time it dint work! I was forcefully thrown into van- yes, very worried and not aware of what they wld do to me, i was Driven at a neck breaking speed. Deep in night from Nakasongola to kireka. At 3 am i was entered into the suspects entry Book (back dated), they signed me in and asked me to sign out (at the same time). They gave me BOND, drove me up to my gate at 4am.

Her Bond Paper: 

Ingrid Bond Paper
“Detained in nakasongola, two days and two nights, but charged in kireka in the wee hours of today. Dropped at my gate” – Ingrid Turinawe

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.
