Kabila’s Presidential Guards sent to intimidate Fayulu!

Kabila’s presidential guard penetrated inside my property today to prevent me from submitting my appeal at the Constitutional Court. Fear is still on their side”Martin Fayulu (12.01.2019).

Even, as the Presidential Candidate of Lamuka, Martin Fayulu was out registering the petition against the Presidential Election of the 30th December 2018 and the Provincial Results, as he believes they should be annulled.

This is happening after CENI announced the provincial results, where Felix Tshisekedi of CACH Coalition first, and third came Emmanuel Shadari of FCC. An the petitioner came narrow second in the results announced from the Electoral Body.

That is why, we are here today, as the Presidential Candidate have delivered his petition with hopefully substantial evidence of rigging and proof of misconduct in such a legal manner. That the cooked results can be “null and void” and hold a new election. Where the results will be respected and not negotiated, even if that would hurt the pride of the Kabila Regime. Which is the ones who is running the show from the sidelines and surely, doesn’t want to be questioned.

Today, we really saw it, as the Presidential Guards visited without any forewarning the house of Fayulu. We have seen this has happen before, as the FARDC, the army has sent soldiers to the house of Moise Katumbi before he fled into exile. That is one of the running mates of Fayulu. Therefore, the pattern is already there. Kabila is using the force and soldiers to get his way.

That is why today, the use of Presidential Guards in a political game to intimidate and control the results. The good thing is that Fayulu was able to deliver the petition and the Constitutional Court now has 7 days to deliver a verdict on the matter. We will really see if there is any independent verdict, which shows the truth. Hopefully, Fayulu has the tallies of the CENCO and can show how the CENI has manipulated the results in the wished favour of the state, instead of the grandest opposition.

Now, we have to wait and see, but we know the Constitutional Court is filled with appointed people of Kabila. They are most likely making a verdict in favour of what Kabila wants. Time will tell. But who knows, right?

The verified results isn’t even announced properly, as Lamuka has started to ask to make them publicly. That is why the CENCO communiques and statements on the Results is a mismatch to the CENI Provincial Results. That is another reason, why this petition will matter, as we can then see what the CENI states, what the judges see fit and how they will argue to sustain the Provincial Results.

What we do know, is that people are trying to disenfranchise and disembark Fayulu as the Western-Puppet, because of the questioning of the current winner Tshisekedi. That is happening before the grievances is even settled. Let me be clear on my sake: I want the just winner, the one that people voted for. Not stand for and celebrated someone rigged in. That is not winning. That is cheating both the citizens and not acceptable. Any rigged leader shouldn’t be praised, but should accept that they used manipulation to get into power. It doesn’t matter if any of these three was cheating, I would have said the same on all three. I would have said the same on Shadari and Fayulu, if any of them was cheated into office. No question. Don’t even think otherwise.

With that being said. The 30th December 2018 Presidential Election is now in the Courts. Let see how this goes. But don’t expect justice or proper justification. That might offend the Don. That might hurt the pride and the tactics of Kabila. He will not take that kindly, as he has negotiated with a back-door agreement with CACH Coalition, as they would be preferred outcome, than letting the heir actually win. That what it all seems like and until that sort of speculation is debunked. It will be in the wind. Peace.
