Bobi Wine is Pre-Emptive House-Arrested in Magere, Wakiso district

It is now official on the 15th January 2021. The Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) have breached the compound and has now pre-emptive house-arrested Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. This have happened to the main opposition in 2016. When Dr. Kizza Besigye home in Kasangati was closed off and besieged by the authorities for a long period of time.

Now Bobi Wine will go through the same motions as Besigye did. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is using the same means now on the National Unity Platform (NUP) Presidential Candidate Bobi Wine is getting the same treatment.

Even the sorts of pictures released from Magere in Wakiso districts looks like the ones of Besigye. This is repeating the same sort of action towards the main competitor. Nobody should be shocked, but know this is Modus Operandi (M.O.).

The ones that is shocked haven’t followed an election in Uganda before. The NRM is always using the military to supporting its political arm. That is why the soldiers are stationed and has arrested Bobi Wine without any proper charges or reasons. This is an un-warrented arrest of a Presidential Candidate the day after the polls.

That is the sad reality … and only shows the injustice and impunity ravening the Republic. Peace.

Uganda Decides: Bobi Wine’s House Besieged by the UPDF

Today on the 15th January 2021 in Magere, Wakiso district the soldiers and law enforcement in plain clothes have ceased onto the property of the National Unity Platform President Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. The house has already been under siege and military have been around it for over 2 months.

Last night there was reports as well, but that was quickly dismissed. Though today, the news is coming out and Bobi Wine stated it online. His practically house-arrested and that was to be anticipated. As Bobi Wine is challenging Museveni and in the head of the old man, that’s treason. So, Bobi Wine have been treasonous and the issue is that his been successful in challenging him.

Today the UPDF and possibly Special Force Command (SFC) have escalated the pressure and is acting up like they did in previous election too. The army and police did house arrest Besigye for months. Now, its starting with Bobi Wine. His now the main target of the state and that is why they are doing this now.

This was to be anticipated. At one point or another. Now, we can just wait for the treason charge and the choppers take him to up-country, and charge him at a Court Martial. That is the next step and what I am awaiting. As this is the escalation from the authorities. This is an pre-emptive arrest and house-arrest of Bobi Wine.

Bobi Wine is now under siege. That was to be expected, because that’s what the state do. They are incriminate Bobi Wine, because he challenged Museveni and that’s enough for them. Peace.

African Elections Watch – Uganda: Authorities must release 26 civil society members arrested for observing elections (15.01.2021)

Opinion: A rigging machine with serious malfunctions …

We are confident that we defeated dictator Museveni by far. I call upon all Ugandans to reject this blackmail. The dictatorship is falling” Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine (15.01.2021)

Yesterday’s polls was happening with all the irregularities that appeared just yesterday. There is little showing that the government, the authorities or the state is really giving way or crossing over to a peaceful transfer of power. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) and the President will cling on to power.

Even when they have glitches in the system, as the National Unity Platform (NUP) is getting a broad mandate of Members of Parliament. While the NRM is losing cabinet members and high ranking officials in government. The President cannot play this out and say the public is tired of just them. They are tired of him too.

President Museveni and his Electoral Commission is already issuing over 60% victory of partial results. While his MPs are losing their seats. That is even happening with the massive gerrymandering and intimidations. The state have used all of its means, but still the public rebuke so many of their MPs.

The NUP, which is in its new form has already gotten a broader mandate then what the naysayers would say. These folks are aligned with Bobi Wine and therefore, they got an head-start. The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) have already conceded to NUP as the main opposition party in the 11th Parliament. That shows the democratic values and maturity of FDC. That deserves recognition.

That the NUP gotten so many Polling Agents arrested. That the FDC Polling Agents arrested. That the ANT Polling Agents arrested as well. Therefore, the EC wanted to be able to rig without any questions. It is a reason why the opposition have been targeted and hit by the authorities. It is a miracle that the NUP is getting as many MPs as they are. Since, there was no outcome looking like they would get as much people behind it. They have slammed dunk where they could and proven real stamina in the election. As people are tired of NRM and the government itself. Therefore, in response, they have voted for NUP aspirants. Somewhere circulating that the NUP with its little machinery and party organization have won over 50 MPs into the 11th Parliament. However, that is preliminary results and could easily be changed by the authorities. However, the numbers game of winning MPs and getting a mandate. That seems legit and real at the moment. It also shows that there is signs of change and a will to vote for the people who wants the same.

The President and his EC will have a hard time explaining the astonishing rise of NUP and Bobi Wine. Still, he will only be announced with a fringe number. While his organization, a little party who has been able to create a real mandate and be vibrant in a manner, which the NRM and the President wasn’t prepared for. The public is signalling the wish for change and their votes is proof of that. To such an extent… that the Presidential Election should reflect that and the propaganda peddlers cannot sustain the argument now.

It is not like the FDC and NUP isn’t getting a great mandate in the 11th Parliament. Not like these parties doesn’t have a say and had the votes in the Parliamentary Elections. Therefore, it would be weird if that wasn’t really reflected in the Presidential Election as well. That is why we know the rigging is going on and the EC is fixing the results in favour of the President. Peace.

Uganda Decides: Bobi Wine will lead in the preliminary results, but Museveni will be announced

Today was the polls in the Republic. This has been an awaited moment. However what is happening now will be anticipated. No matter what results and Declaration Forms is saying online. These results will be disputed. The ones uploaded to Uvote App will be good to save and have for a Constitutional Court petition, but these will not be final.

The Electoral Commission will use the 48 hours from the final polls to announce the final result. Even if everyone knows and has an idea. The game will be played some drops showing Robert Kyagulanyi in the lead. However, with every small drop this will cease and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will be winning. There might even be funny glitches and weird statistical errors, which is beneficial for the incumbent. That’s just what happens.

Why I am saying all this? Do I want President Museveni to win?

Hell to the NO, but I have seen this before and therefore, not on the bandwagon of a VICTORY LAP. When I know how this pans out.

This Electoral Commission and Commissioner is making Badru Kiggundu look smart. The appointed head this time around is the epitome of crony and loyal cadre. To such an extent that nothing he does is believable or trustworthy. His a blind servant of Museveni and that is his endgame too. To get a giant mansion and live of the perks of serving Yoweri. That is really it.

So, expect the stats to flustered and bamboozled. Expect the results to rigged, mismatched and even in perfect tandem. Just so one man and his loyal subjects get elected. So, that yet again he has a mandate and can get his Eight Term in Office.

I saw the same drill and games of results dropping in favour of Besigye in 2016. Saw the possible change and defiance strategy panning out. Where there was hope for change, but in the end Museveni went to Kololo and got sworn in. While foreign dignitaries and envoys all made it legit. Therefore, please… even if Bobi Wine and NUP is winning. Don’t expect the result to reflect that.

In the end… there will be raids of NUP headquarters and Bobi Wine’s home. Especially, at the offices of lawyers who plans to petition the courts. Anyone who collects copies of Declaration Forms and other data will be targeted. As the state will secure all evidence and proof of the actual results.

So, know that the game is happening now. Museveni is using the army, the police and everyone to ensure his prolonged reign. There will be injustice, will be more suffering and more hardships. This junta will use force and law enforcement to get their way. It is just a matter of time.

This have been most tragic, horrific and campaign with rampant impunity from the state. The authorities have attacked and misused their offices in all efforts to stop and stagnate the opposition. Therefore, the only good news from today is that the polling happen in peace. Where only a few incidents, but not a blood-shed. However, it is when the counting happens the issues spark.

That is what is worrying me. As now the game of crooks begins and how that plays out can be vicious. Because, that will be done in favour of one man and nothing else. Peace.
