A look into how little the Wakiso Vote mattered to President Museveni in General Election 2016!

You would think on a day like this as the final rallies in Kyadondo East, which is part of Wakiso District, that the National Resistance Movement and the Police Force would bring peace. But they didn’t, they created chaos and moved independent candidates, as well as detaining them for interfering in their campaign rallies. This is the proof of vicious ruling regime and how the basic freedoms are limited for others, than the NRM elite and the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, rallying for his candidate in the district. But it seems strange that he cares, since with all due respect. He didn’t care about their votes in the General Election of 2016, as these areas have been a stronghold for opposition party Forum for Democratic Change and because Dr. Kizza Besigye reside in Kasangati, which is a vital part of Kyadondo East.

In Kampala and its adjacent districts, the Group observed voting delayed by as much as two to four hours and subsequently observed polling locations where voting was delayed by as much as six to nine hours. Anecdotally, in Kampala, there were several polling stations located within minutes of the premises of the Electoral Commission that did not receive voting materials on time” (…) “The voting hours were subsequently extended in Kampala. However, it appeared that this information was not extensively communicated, as voters and polling officials appeared confused and uncertain of the process. The EC announced that polling would continue in a number of constituencies in Wakiso and Kampala districts the following day. Turnout, however, was low on the second day – which was a working day – and it is possible that many potential voters decided not to attempt to vote, after having waited for many hours the previous day”(Commonwealth, P: 13-14, 2016).

Furthermore, eight teams across the country reported that polling stations could not open before 10 AM. A number of polling stations, notably in Kampala and Wakiso, had not opened within six hours. Significant delays and a lack of effective communication by the EC fuelled frustration and tensions among voters, with EU EOM observers and media reporting about large crowds protesting against being deprived of their right to cast the ballot. In at least four cases, the police used teargas to disperse voters at polling stations. Only shortly before the official closing of the polling stations at 4 PM did the EC chairman announce the three-hour extension of voting in Kampala and Wakiso district. This was poorly communicated to the polling staff in affected areas, and EU EOM observers reported polling stations being closed at first and only after some hesitation did the polling staff improvise and try to re-open voting sites” (EU, P: 29-30, 2016).

The EC failed to communicate and declare final results of presidential and parliamentary elections in a comprehensive, timely and transparent manner. The announcements of the presidential election’s preliminary results started while voting was still ongoing in parts of Kampala and Wakiso. The final results were declared within the legally binding 48-hour deadline, but they did not contain data from seven per cent of all polling stations, and therefore excluded some 675,000 votes cast. The EC delayed the publication of the final results broken down by polling station till 25 February and uploaded them on its website in a manner that did not allow for easy access or use. The EC also did not publish the scanned copies of the DRFs online although they were readily available in electronic format, thus further reducing voters’ access to information of public interest and in contravention of the principles outlined in the ICCPR” (EU, P: 3-4, 2016).

The 2016 Elections witnessed a number of violations of the right to vote, most notably due to late delivery of materials in Kampala and Wakiso districts, described by the Supreme Court as evidence of incompetence and gross inefficiency by the electoral management body. A number of potential voters we’re disenfranchised during the voting exercise, in particular persons who turned 18 between May 2015 and February 2016, detainees, including some pre-trial dententions and Ugandans in the diaspora” (FHRI, P: 25, 2016)

So both, the Commonwealth report, FHRI report and the European Union Observer Group saw the same vast indifference for the votes and voter turnout in Wakiso, the same was seen in capital, but that isn’t where the By-Election is happening now. This proves the lack of care and common sense as President Museveni drives Tuk-Tuk and talk of importance of electing people who serves him. He might say he wants to be challenged in Parliament, but everyone knows that is a lie. Therefore, he detained Bobi Wine earlier in the day and moved him to Gyaza town, so his presence could be in Kasangati and at Szasa Grounds. Not like he could be more ruthless, but surely he would rig these election like he did in 2016. Nothing new there, if the turnout would be meager and lack-lusting that would hurt the old-man. Since he cannot show 90-100% turnout, when there would be no lines of people showing up. Harder to rig just a bunch of paper compared to buck-load, which can be pre-ticket into ballot boxes and look legit. That is how they do, especially under President Museveni. The man who made himself a revolutionary by claiming UPC rigging in 1980s. Such a class-act the President, becoming worse than the ones he toppled! Peace.

NRM Letter to President Museveni: “Re: Memorandum of Important Issues Affecting Our Party and The Running of Government under the National Resistance Movement” (03.03.2017)

Opinion: Tired of NRM apologists defending the record of President Museveni!

It is depressing, it is sad and it tormenting to listen and read the defenses of National Resistance Movement. The defense of the 31 years of rule, the rule of the for life President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his cronies. The cronies and their 10th Parliament, the By-Elections that are rigged in favor of the NRM Regime. The government of Uganda is totally controlled by the one in-charge, the President and kingpin.

The Parliament are following orders and making amends to seem to be different. Therefore, the results of elections are more to just show overpower, but not to have real elections. As the NRM sends buses and pays of villages with small-fees and commodities. There aren’t anything fruitful or sincere by the regime. The ones who put dissidents in the Nalufenya prison. Where they will be beaten, tortured and get ill. As well, as in the overcrowded prison in Luzira. The organized silence of opposition, as their rallies are filled with tear-gas and police brutality. If not the ones who are feared by the NRM are put on treason charges and called terrorists.

President Museveni with his patronage, his bloated State House, the massive cabinet and the Presidential Advisors. There certainly enough ghosts, fake bills and misuse of state reserves to write books ten times thicker than the bible. We can know by the lost trillions of the Petroleum monies, as the “Presidential Handshake” is a drop in the ocean. As the UNRA and other agencies has misused the taxpayers monies. This happens with such ease and lacking finesse, but the agencies looking into graft and corruption is compromised, because the ones leading it are loyal Musevenist.

That the government and budgets are bloated. That the financial and economic state is in deep distress, as the state is suffering from lacking provisions and revenue. As well, as they are struggling with the stop of donor friendly relationships. People’s and Foreigners trust in the leadership of Museveni has been dwindling. President Museveni are also already prospecting the revenue of the oil and petroleum, even before it has surfaced. Therefore, the future will also be compromised by the deals done today.

The defenders of the NRM now, does not believe in real democracy, as they defending the rigging and militant Movement. A President who has no trouble with killing and destroying to stay in power. The ones defending him has no trouble to stand by a man who empties the treasury and state reserves with no hesitation. As well, as the men and woman who stays by the regime, are easily taking land and resources, they are eating of the plate and selling it back to the Ugandans. This with impunity and without any consideration of the ones who loses their chances.

It is a nation who has a government, not based on merit, but on loyalty. The loyalty to Museveni and his agenda. The agenda to work for him and his ideas. Not work to develop the nation, but develop the estate of Museveni. The idea of real Movement is ploy from the master himself. He just needs shadows to work for him and for envelopes. Not a real party who deliver policy or working for the future Republic. No the Movement is now a shell used pounce out the empty ideas of greed, nurture of the estates of Museveni and of the staging the power of the old-man with the hat!

President Museveni and his apologists knows all of this, they live by this and has faith that this is ideal and the dream. That someone comes with empty promises and lives by the fake party celebrating the 1986 coup. The coup that overruled the government and the old constitution, that President Museveni couldn’t pigeonhole. That has he done to his own and plans to do it again for his 8th Term.

The apologists can say he created safety, but he also created warfare and civil-war to get to power. Some called it a revolution, other calls it a takeover. But with time it wasn’t for the idea of a people’s government, but more a government and state built around the revolutionary, who didn’t really believe in the words he spoke.

The ones defending him, is defending a lie and that for the sake of eating. Not for the benefit of the Republic or the public. The struggling public is pawns, they are just needed props now and then for the Movement. As they praise their master, as they know if they get to close or too ambitious they are surely losing their place. Therefore, all of them are loyal cadres, elite and patrons who surely basks in the pasture of the President. But really, they should know it is on borrowed time. No-one knows how long the patronage and military can be serviced, how long they can all live on the charade and the misuse of power.

Certainly, the President knows this too, therefore, he uses all ways to make sure and get people on board. Even if that lets people starve, let them cheat on food reliefs and even use refugees as bailing-out card on the struggling economy. That is solely made of the patronage and grand-corruption orchestrated from the seat of the President at the Okello House. He can created all sorts of schemes and manufacture new ways of promoting better agriculture or better yields, but it is all ploys of generating more funds for his own. Not for the public to earn or get better output of the seeds and seedlings. If so, than the agricultural should be booming after 30 years in power.

However, the defense of this will be in the patronage and by the spokespersons appointed by the President. These ones will make a fuzz and say the Opposition never was a viable option and never had the leadership to overturn the Movement. The Movement has always been the only option, they say and use new ways of saying so. But that doesn’t make it true, as the rigging and the intimidation is used to forge this facade. The flawless untouched ballots doesn’t exists, there has been all sorts of play to get the will of the President.

President Museveni, even detain opposition, he uses safe-houses and some like Sam Mugumya are detained in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with no plan of getting him home. Him and others are lingering abroad as the political prisoner lingers in uncertainty. This is the legacy of the revolutionary, who became the draconian and the militarized government who uses all means to stay. He uses all methods on earth, Machiavellian and Orwellian blended in a Yellow Color with no fear of repression… no fear that the Movement can be touched, but when the moment appear. Than the Ugandans shouldn’t lose it, because they have already lost so much in the name of Museveni. Museveni has stolen the past and the present. His men has rewritten the history and tried to become the grand hero, and the generations from the rebellion is dwindling away. The young generation only knows the folklore and should beware, it is not all what it seems. The ghosts are not only in the budgets, but they are haunting the President from the past. They are the ones he stole to gain power and to silence the opposition. These souls will ask in the after-life, why he did what he did to them and also why he punished their grand-kids. Since they all lead the same faith. They all got to feel the pain, with no mercy from the leadership controlled by the President.

That is why there are no defending a man like Museveni. He has used all tricks, even was able to deceive the west for decades to pay for his decadence. Certainly, he must laugh about the dumb-white men and their agendas. His grin must be wide thinking of all the sorts of cars, airplanes and ranch expansions that are paid by the friends of direct-state aid. They have kept his roof and his ammunition, to oppress and to relief his patronage. Therefore, if someone is defending this man. Think of his track-record and all the souls he has left behind. Peace.

Al Jazeera’s interview undress Mzee’s so-called Democracy!

Again, President Yoweri Katuga Museveni tried use the trick of democracy, as the ballots and the Electoral Commission, didn’t cook the numbers like a drunk cafeteria staffer and tried to sell it Michelin Star Restaurant. Mr. President has try to sell it other numb-sculls than me, but I am not his target audience.

Let me address one thing Al-Jazeera did wrong, they called him a five time term President, as off his elections. Certainly, the Media House are forgiven for giving way to the propaganda arm of the Movement and their rewriting of history. But there is decade when he wasn’t elected and postponed elections. Sort of the same trick President Joseph Kabila tries to pull of in Democratic Republic of Congo. Well, that is another story for another day. What Al-Jazeera does is to erase the years between 1986 to 1996. Since he wasn’t elected nor had an election, as the rebel and two time General going in and getting rid of the ones on the throne. That is easy to forget as the time past and most of his citizens are born since the 1990s.

Well, before more comments. Look at this interview and the comments of the long-term dictator and ruler of the Republic of Uganda.

Outtake of the Interview:

Museveni: Have you heard of something called democracy? Democracy means you elect the people you like. We had elections about one year ago and my party won 62 percent of the vote. That does not show that the people of Uganda are fed up of our party because they have voted for us five times.

Al Jazeera: According to some reports, you have demanded to be given the right to choose the next leader of Uganda. You were unsuccessful.

Museveni: No. I cannot demand that. The people are there. The people have been electing me, in spite of Al Jazeera.

Al Jazeera: Are you going to run for another term?

Museveni: We follow our Constitution.

Al Jazeera: There are reports that you are about to change the Constitution so that you can run for another term. Is that going to happen?

Museveni: I cannot change the Constitution because I do not have that power.

Al Jazeera: Reports also say that you are now preparing your own son, who is now highly elevated in the army and he’s your special adviser on certain issues. Your wife is also a minister – she sits next to you on the cabinet. Reports are you are preparing one of the two to become the next president of Uganda. What do you say to this?

Museveni: Why should I prepare them? The people of Uganda will choose the one they want.

Al Jazeera: People in your family are very close to you right now, closer than anybody else. There are reports that you are focusing on your own relatives and this is nepotism – giving them higher seats in the government. Isn’t that nepotism, Mr President?

Museveni: That’s not nepotism. The few members of my family that are involved, I involve on their own merit. My wife, against my advice, stood for election and had the biggest majority in the whole country – because the population appreciate what I have done(Talk to Al Jazeera, 2017).

I wonder if President Museveni feels that as a sole candidate and NRM Flag-Bearer for three decades, that he knows there hasn’t been any suggestion of other people running the country. Why are Dr. Kizza Besigye, Dr. Olara Otunnu, Dr. Paul Ssemogerere and Amama Mbabazi never became Presidents after you? Certainly one of them could have been legitimate presidents and de facto leaders as well. Not only you Mr. President of a so-called democracy? But hey, you took the grip of the nation by the gun and never let-go!

He speaks about electing him, if he means he puts up elections and than makes sure rigging it and using the military to spread fear in the villages; than he would be closer to the actual fact. The time when he was popular have gone, as the pictures only today in the villages when Besigye rode around the whole village turned-up to the car of the opposition leader. Something that wouldn’t occur on the watch of the President, as people more fear him and the security forces around him.

That President Museveni speaks of respecting the constitution, he has already pigeon-hold it to fit the paradigm of longevity of himself. If someone we’re up to change the age-limit on the Presidency, it wouldn’t be out of his character to drop of a few suits to the MP’s and have a summit at Kyankwanzi where the subject came and the Movement would celebrate in the progress the party has made. So the use of democracy and constitution is just fronts to look uptight, when the reality is much more bleak.

Let’s be clear if the Ugandans really could choose, it wouldn’t be you, you are already old milk that is not drinkable. The fatigue and disguise of so-called democracy doesn’t work anymore, the gig is up Mr. President. The evidence is right there, on the kangaroo court, the post-election violence and the disappearance of governance from the Central Governance. It is all circled around you and not the institutions of the government. If so there wouldn’t be given food to district who doesn’t need so and the districts getting who needs so are not getting enough. Just as the proof of the food relief in Lira, Abletong and Dokolo this weekend.

The first lady and Minister for Karamoja says she will not be seeking re-election as MP for Ruhama County in the 2016 elections. In a statement to her constituents, Mrs. Museveni said she had reached the decision after a lot of thinking and prayer. She asked that her constituents to understand her and accept her message within grace” (NTV Uganda, 22. May 2015).

So how Mrs. Janet Museveni is on merit and was elected to her role as Minister in his cabinet, is not only violation of her place, but he directly lied to Al-Jazeera, but calling Uganda a Democracy and calling himself elected by the people is a forgery. President Museveni knows it and the world does to. The rigging and the pre-ticked ballots is known by the ones googling away. The history on how he changed the constitution in the past is there too. Not like it is not well known. The ignorant are the ones who doesn’t know.

That President Museveni uses the Flying Squad or Special Forces Command to kill and get of rid of dissidents isn’t a rumor or a mirage, it is mere fact of sadness of overstepping powers. As the ones with detaining dissidents and opposition voices like Stella Nyanzi, but also others. Therefore, keep in mind that Uganda isn’t democratic. That President Museveni is on his 7th Term, not on his 5th that is National Resistance Movement rewriting of history and the world has swallowed it! Peace.

Opinion: The Leopards Anus was apparently wrongfully offended by some Buttocks!

Just because you’re offended, doesn’t mean you’re right.”Ricky Gervais

Apparently the Leopards Anus is mad or crazy, or his ordered to be offended by the civil servant, the lecturer at Makerere Dr. Stella Nyanzi, as the First Lady Janet Museveni has ordered her husband who speed dialed Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura, so the case could move forward and the charges could be put. Therefore, the Police is a useful tool for the State House and the Presidential couple, who cannot manage to live with vocal voices anymore. They so fragile and pale leaders who are charging citizens for writing “buttocks”.

But in not to long ago, the President himself on the Mbale State Lodge in December 2015 said this: “If you go and put your finger in the anus of a leopard. You are in trouble, you are in trouble. Ho! Ho! I cant believe how people could do so. NRM?, you attack NRM people in Uganda here?! If it is in South Sudan or Kenya, yes we may have some problems. But in Uganda here?! Where do go? Where do you go?! So there will be no problem here. Those people made a big mistake, those individuals and those children are going to regret. And whoever sent them will also regret if we come with evidence we shall go for him or her – the one who said ‘you go and beat them’”.

So when he call himself the Leopards Anus, why charge an academic person for buttocks!

Dr. Stella Nyanzi Particular of the Offence was this: “Stella Nyanzi on the 28th January 2017 at the Kampala District or thereabout used a computer to post on her facebook page “Stella Nyanzi” wherein she made a suggestion or proposal referring His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni amongst others “a Pair of Buttocks” which Suggestion/Proposal is obscene or Indecent” (Uganda Police Force – CID Headquarters – E/79/2017 – 23.03.2017).

The yellow movement are like minions of Museveni now, following orders blindly and using the Police to silent the dissidents to levels that are obscene. That the NRM and Museveni cannot handle to be questioned by a Makerere lecturer is insane, but also the state of affairs. The fragile little minister and his first family who cannot handle buttocks.

They have with age become weak at heart and soft as statues on pedestals, as they cannot be moved or touched, because if you do so. They might break and go into a million pieces. That the President and his First Lady is so fragile, that a word means ass and meaning the behind makes someone a criminal. Proves how little value their government and their rule is. That the NRM and their President cannot manage to be described as a buttocks, but calls himself as a big-man the “Leopards Anus”. Proves the double standard and the double legality, as buttocks is seen as obscene, but the Anus is OKAY.

The little man in charge of Uganda and his wife doesn’t have courage or strength anymore. They should be farmers and under the banana-trees, not run a republic when a buttocks comment is to much to handle. These leaders just control and micro-manage, nor actually run it. That President Museveni has to charge Dr. Nyanzi over that, show’s how tiny his mind is and how marginal understanding of criticism are.

One popular new plastic surgery technique is called lip grafting, or “fat recycling” wherein fat cells are removed from one part of your body that is too large, such as your buttocks, and injected into your lips; people will then be literally kissing ass.” David Barry

Well, David Barry has a point, because the reason why Dr. Nyanzi is in a situation is like this because the President is used to ass kissers who praise all his activities. Therefore, that he was pushing forward with the charge on “buttocks” proves that he has lost touch with reality. That President Museveni and his family are now ruining the republic. Not that this is news, but the effects of his measures now doesn’t makes sense. That his government structure or policies are now so draconian.

That the man who called himself Leopard Anus should have more serious charges against a citizen if he was offended. Surely, the other opposition like Beti Kamya even said he had no heart. I don’t know what is more offensive, been called heartless or an ass. An ass is subjective that your doing dirt, but if you have no heart, than your not caring or careless in your acts as a person. Nevertheless, Kamya is a State Minister and Dr. Nyanzi is behind bars until mid of April. Since justice is optional in Uganda.

The Leopards Anus has spoken, the fragile little President at the Okello State House, cannot even manage without getting hurt by some bum fun and some backhanded slaps. That he feels that he is taken from behind and cornered. Such from a freedom fighter and a revolutionary Marxist. So I hate too, wait I love to be use the words of Ricky Gervais, even if your offended, doesn’t mean your right Mr. President. It just mean your wrong for the unjust reasons. That the injustice you are selling to the tribes and the Republic is now manifested with the charge on Dr. Nyanzi. Peace.

NAB – “Re: Attack on NTV Journalist” (10.04.2017)

She must be the Holiness, the First Lady, Janet Museveni: since anyone questioning her powers gets into trouble!

“It is true that when we harm others, we harm ourselves; but it is just as true that when we help others, we also help ourselves.”Desmond Tutu

It has to be true, it has to be true, that the most holy and the most significant female walking in the Republic is Janet Kaguta Museveni, the First Lady and the Minister for Education and Sports. The one who cannot fund maxi-pads for woman or take care of the Primary School buildings. That is the most holy person and the one that cannot be touched!

Why cannot not be touched or questioned? Well, Dr. Stella Nyanzi has spent time in questioning by the Central Investigation Division at Kireka and been detained for both fixing woman some pads and questioning the reasons for lack of government support for the same. Especially since this was one of the grand promises of the National Resistance Movement, in the recent campaign. How time is a wasting, when you are in power, Ay?

That the First Lady has little or no problem using force is evident since Dr. Stella Nyanzi is awaiting three counts of her crimes, as the lecturer at Makerere University has offended he high and mighty. So she hires the Police Force and Commanders like lap-dogs who catches the people questioning her powers. IGP Kale Kayihura must be on speed-dial and every-time a brother or sister questions her existence they will end behind bars.

So, when NTVs Miss Gertrude Tumusiime Uwitware, was abducted yesterday by unknown men on Nile Avenue in Kampala after she had made a critical piece on the First Lady. We know that she is behind it, because Janet Museveni doesn’t have the capacity or understanding, that if your are minister and a public figure. You can be ridiculed and your acts will be either praised or criticized. But the illiterate minister cannot comprehend that fact, apparently!

That the First Lady does have the character, the swagger or the ability to handle critical voices is clear and evident. As the recent acts of the Police and Security Officials within her power has taken both NTV journalist and a lecturer, who has all been critical about her ways. Therefore, she is not in a mental state to be a leader, neither a government officials. Since she cannot sustain that people questions her or even tries to reason with her. If she was a serious minister who could be taken public court, she would have possibly been worse treated, as the achievements under the NRM and her rule is dwindling. Therefore, they have to detain the ones questioning her. Janet Museveni knows that the failing schools and also failing promises.

The worst part of it all, she thinks she is entitled to use the Police Force and call IGP Kale Kayihura, demand the arrests as these people hurt her feelings. That she asks her husband to act upon the vile words against her Royal Court. That Janet Museveni might feel so, might be true, who knows except herself. What we do know is that she doesn’t have the character to be Minister, neither a leader who get questioned for her acts. Since she detain and harass the media who does so. She shouldn’t be minister, but she is because she married Yoweri Kaguta Museveni back in day. No merit or qualification considered whatsoever.

She married the school debater of Ntare School on the outside of Mbarara district. So she know is entitled to take away the freedoms of all citizens with the whip of her mind. Janet Museveni is so holy and untouchable, that no-one should take her name in vein. The lord called her and husband to control and install their presence for eternity for all citizens of Uganda. She will follow the dissidents and the ones not believing her will, will pay the price of their liberty and peace, as she can command their downfall. That is what the holiness Museveni commands! Peace.

Dr. Stella Nyanzi behind bars, because the NRM Regime cannot have vocal dissidents!

There are these days when you wonder how little margin of error the citizens of Uganda can have, before they become the enemy of the state. The National Resistance Movement, with the President Yoweri Museveni and the First Lady Janet Museveni, who happens now to Minister for Educations and Sports, who was elected by the people or selected on merits, but she was hired because she married the President. Have not clearly liked the questioning her powers and her reach. Janet Museveni have not taken it easy that a Research Fellow and Lecturer at Makerere University has questioned her acts in government.

That Dr. Stella Nyanzi is a fierce critic and doesn’t hold barren of how criticism is well-known, she know also the possible consequence as her own pen has already told that she expected this outcome. That she would be detained and might even lose her. She has right to fear this as she has risked it all against the NRM Regime who does not care about democratic values and rights, as long as the Museveni’s has all power.

Therefore, the NRM are using the policing and the law-system to order and strike at the visible dissidents, therefore we have seen other FDC sympathizers and leaders either behind bars or put through fraudulent court cases. So it is not like Dr. Nyanzi is the first one to be touched by the regimes long arms of force and vicious attempts to silence opposition voices. This is more the pattern of President Museveni and his Police than anything else.

That Mrs Museveni is thin-skinned, is most likely true, she feels entitled to not be questioned or be spoken against. Therefore, when she entered the Ministry after the election she took control of it with the Police Force and cleared the ones phones and communications materials. To make sure no-one would leak or spread anything that wasn’t in-line with ideas. So when a small citizen who happens to work inside her Ministry questions her efforts or even care of pledges of the husband. Than she felt hurt and wanted to retaliate. That has now been done, the forgiveness of the masters and the chiefs wasn’t sincere. Not that ones that has followed the Museveni’s believed the interview on NTV with Sheila Nduhukire.

So that Dr. Stella Nyanzi has to counts on her for her expression and words online, while Chris Obore uses the words against critics, but does not get any problems, proves that the laws are not equal in Uganda. If your a NRM member and leader you can say whatever, but if you question the Leopards Anus, you will be bitten.

The NRM illegitimate rule is proven with acts like this, as they cannot even handle criticism on social media, they cannot manage that a Makerere lecturer can deliver pads to fellow girls at the schools, while the President and his regime cannot manage to uphold their pledges. They we’re just bait to the poor in the districts and up-country, as they would believe they even would get funding for Malwa groups. Oh golly, the promises of an international airport in Gulu. Look forward to see that surface in my lifetime. Please Mr. President promise world peace on your next time for pre-ticked ballots and probable statistics exercise only possible in elections rigging.

So that Mrs. Janet Museveni, the First Lady being hurt by the questioning of her powers and her position, show how little these two as a couple care for democratic values or freedom of expression. That they cannot even manage a fellow citizens with a colorful language expressing her views on the lacking governance from the NRM. Not like Chris Obore or Ofwono Opondo is writing with a soft pen against the FDC or anyone else who questions the NRM. But they are loyalists to the Movement and can get away with murder. Just like NRM tries to get away with murder if they have too, and they do that once in while. Sadly not in every blue-moon. 

There lacking care of governance and transparency is apparent as night from day. The irrational NRM will continue with their pending obnoxious belief in their right to rule without any consideration of other views or beliefs. That is why Dr. Stella Nyanzi is behind bars, because the Museveni cannot handled to questioned or be revealed for their lacking service delivery. Peace.

My letter to Janet Museveni: “how thin-skinned are you?”

Dear Sir Janet Museveni!

It’s hard to write dear, when I know your greed together with husband has eaten of state coffers for over 31 years. How your husband has used weapons and laws to silence dissidents. That is why I have to write today, as Dr. Stella Nyanzi has triggered.

Today, the Makerere University again has suspended Dr. Stella Nyanzi after you supposedly honorable Minister of Education had forgiven her. Still, hours after your interview, she got axed at the University. She was questioning your husbands giant promises of maxi-pads to girls at schools, since the NRM and the current government cannot afford that.

The government that you represent both as First Lady and as the Ministry of Education. You have high and mighty told how to act and be, how the poor should live, because back-in-the-day, your family was poor. That was before your husband went on the warpath and dissolved all sorts of government in Uganda. But, hey! That is not important for you, since you have eaten of the plate of the government since 1986.

Your estates, farms and businesses has risen, your knowledge of transaction and how to play politics has grown. So you are now in the second Ministerial Position, not on merit, but because your husbands role as President. That isn’t a lie, it is a fact, even Professor. Venansius Baryamureeba would be better choice in a heartbeat. Though you wouldn’t like that assessment would you?

I am supposed to offer you a leaf of appreciation, but I cannot, when I see the regime you work in and the way your acting yourself. You profess yourself to the high and mighty, as even when you entered the Ministry of Education after the election. The First Lady needed all sorts of Police and Security Agents to make sure the dissidents left the building.

So when somebody, a commoner like Dr. Nyanzi writes against you and the NRM, a NRM that has never elected you and you have never had a Primary even to prove your worth. You are not an elected leader, you are selected not on merits, but on affiliation and wedded the President back-in-the-day.

That you are having selective acts towards the ones who parts of your clientele and the ones who is dissidents is proven when it comes to Dr. Nyanzi. She are not allowed to travel on educational travel to the Netherlands, she has been taken to CID on her comments about you and been detained before for her belief in the FDC, instead of the NRM. Therefore, she even got work in South Africa to get peace, but got back now recently. Than, she started where the Ministry of Education failed. Nyanzi started with traveling with “Pads for Girls Campaign”, that have delivered much more than the government who promised it did.

So that must hurt your pride as Minister of Education as a lecture and Dr. at Makerere can do better than the government at their own game. She could gather attention and also inspire people to questions the power to be, that means she questions you and your authority. As First Lady for 3 decades you assume that people respect you, but to honest! They don’t and the way you act, they never will.

Hon. Janet Museveni your years as First Lady and riches has blinded you, it has made you forget the problems of the commoner, and the commoners rather listen to voice of Dr. Nyanzi, than the decadent Minister, which happens to be you. You couldn’t expect that everyone just bow downs and kiss your rings because of your husband, did you?

Mrs. Museveni your husband and his regime is the trouble, as you are making way for the ill ways of the government. Ministry of Education are letting the public schools fall apart and closing private schools, which actually pays their teachers and their staff, also their buildings more intact than the public schools. The district and up-county schools lacks equipment and the teachers rather have small-farms to survive than on civil servants pay. So it is not like your ministry delivers anything else than amounts of ghost schools, ghost staff and illegal tenders.

So that Dr. Nyanzi address you and yours should be expected, that the University is suspending her, that the Police arrests her and that you disclaim her in interviews. Proves that there the classes of highness, which is you Mrs. Museveni and the lower class of Dr. Nyanzi who can easily get ridden off and also use force against.

So don’t speak of respect and honor next time, that you feel is insulted, says more about your lacking understanding of the problems created by the NRM and the lack of accountability and corrupts acts over the years. As the struggles for paying for fees, school-clothes and school-food, is a mystery to you and yours, since you eat of the Reserves from the Bank of Uganda. It is hard in your stolen wealth to understand the poor, when you feel entitled to your position with even merit.

It doesn’t help that you cannot be critiqued and asked of your legitimacy as the pledges of 2015/2016 cannot even be questioned. The Ministry of Agriculture needs funding for their jerrycans and the drip-drop irrigation system that your husband suddenly praise. We hardly believe you as the monies are spoiled and spent on your elite, not on service delivery, if so than the school buildings wouldn’t be falling apart, as the school-kids are the future and not your meal-ticket. Even if you act as they are your meal-ticket and you still eat of the food of the plate,s from the kids and their parents, without any hesitation.

To end this, your thin-skinned and weak at heart, when you cannot handle Dr. Stella Nyanzi! When you cannot handle the voice of reason from a fellow Ugandan. I am not a Ugandan, but surely I cannot accept your intolerance and ignorance as you are a First Lady. Somebody I should respect, but I can’t, that would be lie. Your parts of a thieving elite, who eats off the state coffers without any consideration from the ones you take it from. Peace.
