Opinion: OO’s defence of Muhoozi is pointless…

The government spokesperson and forever lingering subject of the Republic, Ofwono Opondo dropped a piece recently on Uganda Media Centre called: “MUHOOZI KAINERUGABA AND THE TINGLING POLITICAL FLAMES”. This piece is written like it’s still up in the air and in the open what the plan is. Like there haven’t been a “Project Muhoozi” and the machinery is behind his candidacy, even before he get dusted or even tested. That is evident, as his one of the owners and part of the inner-circle by definition of birth, rank and title at this very moment.

Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba is on the rise and is most definitely aiming for his fathers throne. As he speaks of winning the hearts, minds and all of the Republic. His brash and arrogant stances in combination with promises of a political program. Just shows how he intends to stand and be next in line. That’s National Resistance Movement (NRM) MPs have talked of a rebrand of the party to National Progressive Movement (NPM) and the NRM Youth League has already endorsed him. So, everything is on the table and it up in the open.

That’s why it’s striking that OO writes this: “Muhoozi’s admirers, who seem spread countrywide, and calculating possible windfalls, argue that the ‘MK movement’ is spontaneous although many people disagree and insist it’s well-calculated to give it a veneer of legitimacy so as to shield him from accusations of disregarding the constitutional provision which bars serving UPDF soldiers from involvement in open politics” (OO, 08.05.2022).

OO is writing like they are building up a momentum of sorts. That there is sort of organic traction to Muhoozi, which there is not. It is all artificial and OO knows that. It is within reason to be suspicious and question the legitimacy. When one man has held office since 1986 and suddenly in 2022 his son is aspiring to takeover. That is not organic or by the popularity of public opinion. This is another hostile takeover and not a peaceful transition. It is just a mere change of faces within the family and is suited for a monarchy, but not an elected position.

As OO continues later on: “The birthday carnival involving sports activities and merrymaking at venues across Uganda are indicative of latent mobilization which he has said is unstoppable. On his twitter account, Muhoozi has taunted his haters to watch the unfolding events saying “The enemies fought us for so long! They abused me with every name they could find! Now they can’t believe we have taken over the country! We will not stop until we are in complete control!” There’s no doubt, that Muhoozi, a disciplined professional soldier of repute, on his own merit, attracts great attention, and could as well upset the political alignment should he join the fray” (OO, 08.05.2022).

Well, the birthdays, the marathon and everything else is handled by paid performers and inner-circle officials. This is state sanctioned enterprises, which is reflected by the attendance and the need for free food and concerts to get people to show up. This is half-baked rallies to establish Muhoozi as a viable candidate and an aspiring as such. As his soon ticking 50 years old and still haven’t held any office or been active to prove himself. His only gotten advanced in the army and within the State House, because his the First Son of the President.

OO further says: “The widespread perception until evidence is adduced, is that Muhoozi, a serving officer, contrary to the Constitution and laws governing UPDF, is getting involved in what appears to be open politics and not being called to order. Muhoozi and many supporters present their acclaim as a generational shift to save the NRM revolution from decay among the restless young people who constitute over seventy percent of Uganda’s population whose aspirations aren’t being met” (OO, 08.05.2022).

Here is where OO must take people for fools. When everything is up for grabs. Everything is aligned and prepared for it. It is also very unique that a man close to his fifties is speaking and is tie to the youth. While all of his work is being an avenger and a man of ruthless violence. There is nothing in the past of Muhoozi, which is family friendly or of the sorts of peaceful mind. No, he comes to conquer, to destroy and avenge his father. That’s what he does with brutal results.

So, saying Muhoozi represents a generational shift… it is at least one lost generation plus the ones that is growing up today, because of his fathers lingering leadership. The lack of progress and regress is systemic. A part which Muhoozi a part of and is responsible for keeping alive. Muhoozi isn’t a voice of a new generation or of the decaying youth of the Republic. No, his just a continuation of his father with predetermined entitlement and arrogance.

The most ironic part was this: “There is need for NRM cadres to reinvigorate a culture of spirited debates in the marketplace of ideas because open criticism has declined, while obscurantism and dirty tricks become the dominant face of NRM politics. In this vision, ideological and intellectual exchanges should be unencumbered by personal attacks, harsh judgment, need for self-preservation or risk of occupational hazards. The main objective should be to preserve freedom of inquiry. Many leaders in NRM today seem more focused on curbing disagreements within and outside than finding and pursuing a principled ideological correct line to serve NRM and public interest. At the start of 11th parliament in 2021, NRM took its MPs-elect to the National Leadership Institute (NALI), Kyankwanzi for an orientation in liberation ideology, patriotism, commitment to national duties, political discipline, and humility in leadership” (OO, 08.05.2022).

The party of which is bound by the decree and orders from it’s chairman and the head of state. That one is supposed to get a new culture of spirited debates. The party of which all rebels and all dissenting voices has either been muted, banned or thrown out. The party that goes after the opposition with violence, pre-emptive arrests, torture and extra judicial killing. That party will suddenly become an open forum of ideas?

Who is OO kidding here? Not me… maybe a few gullible fellows who is sitting sideways on the porch. While the rest of us knows the gist. Muhoozi isn’t a man of free speech. Muhoozi isn’t a man of honour or bravery. No, his a man of brutality and an onslaught of violence. That sort of man will not come in peace and offer a new beginning. That isn’t happening. His not that kind… the leopard doesn’t change it’s spots. This is why the President called himself the “Leopards Anus” and said no one should “touch” him. Therefore, we are supposed to believe this? Now? After 36 years of the stalemate and one-man politicking? That his son will change that?

The ones who believe that must be deluded. The Lt. Gen. has been aspiring and wanting to takeover from his father. It wouldn’t be without a reason the Red Pepper and Daily Monitor closure for a week in 2013 and the exile of Gen. David Sejusa over nothing. That’s because this has been planned and is coordinated. Now the state and the government spokesperson tries to deflect and downplay it.

While it’s all in the open and the man itself is showing his plan on Twitter. His using social media to gain attention and show where he stands. If it is by the bullet or by the bible, which at times seems like both. However, hallow or shallow the faith is or as we all know.. that he swears to the gun and presumably prays for solace in church. Peace.

National Resistance Movement (NRM): NRM Youth League endorsement of Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba (11.05.2022)

Opinion: Muhoozi will not save you…

I hate to be the messenger, but someone has to say it first: Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba will not save you…

Like father like son. He might tell stories, promise elaborate things and promise change. However, don’t count on it. His an arrogant, anger-filled, short-tempered and fierce individual. Who has run his maverick rise in the ranks of the army. An avenger of the father and not a man of mercy.

Muhoozi will not make things better. Only for self justification and enrichment. His self indulged and has been brought up in luxury. He haven’t had the need or the probabilities of hardships. He has maybe had hard times in military schools in the United States and North Korea. Still, that is nothing compared to the peasants and the civilian living from hand-to-mouth. The gig-economy is saving nobody and is only pleasurable for the elites.

When the lack of charisma and lack of honour approaches. You know that a man of this sort of character will bring no good. The only reason his name is at play and is regarded, is because of his family ties and the political dynasty his a part of. Not like he has build bridges, captured hearts or been a revolutionary of any sort of capacity.

His just a soldier showing that he wants to join politics. His a Lt. Gen. who wants to get taken serious and outside of the bounds of the army. He wants to be seen as the successor of his father. Nevertheless, the gig is the gig and you cannot trade that away.

It is said to be lonely at the top, but in some respects this man is at the bottom. His maybe a high ranking official and a Lt. Gen, but the public cannot trust him. The time as the commander of the Special Forces Command he shown his merciless attack on civilians. The SFC has been used to torture, detain and kill. His totally ruthless and that hasn’t changed a single bit. The burning destruction of Kasese and the recent escapades in Karamoja. Only shows he lacks heart and soul, because lives doesn’t count, unless it’s himself or his dear wife.

Muhoozi will never be beloved. His just one of them. One of them men who will kill, destroy and be a brute. There is nothing good about him. At least not what the naked eye can see. His just the epitome of everything wrong with this regime. As he come in huge convoys, expects bottle-service and the finest wines. He participate only with the rich business-men and influential musicians. Alas, his not a man of the people, but just another racketeering soldier wishing to be crowned king.

That’s who he is. He might not say or spell it out. Nevertheless, we know this and should say it. Since he will not be held to account or take any sort accountability for his actions. No, he will no shed tears or mourn the lives his taken. Neither will he repent for the damage, the pain and the suffering he caused to civilians. No, he expect the same people to dance, sing and praise the grounds he steps on.

Muhoozi will never be a proper gentlemen or a statesman. He doesn’t have it in him. This man cannot even fake it or shield his brutal past. No, his a gun-slinger and a vicious man who rather destroy someone, than building them up. That’s who he is and it’s so obvious.

That’s why his wearing the fatigue and hoping people find endearing. Alas, it is not… it’s just the hypocrisy and the levels of intimidation he brings. Because, he know there is no love lost… since there was nothing there to begin with. Peace.

Opinion: Is ‘Project Muhoozi’ resurfacing?

I beg to question, what is so special about Maj. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba? What is so unique and such leadership skills he has that should make Youths and Ugandan citizens interested in this man? There are dozens of younger leaders within the Republic, which has more swagger, more profound qualities of leadership and has a positive public standing. None of the above is key features with this man.

The only thing and the only reason this is a piece and the reason why I write this. Because suddenly the Sunday Vision has a main story, that the Youths wants this man. I have a hard time believing it. At this point if it was Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine or even of the other renegade Members of Parliament. Has bigger standing in the public, than the son of the current President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. That Muhoozi is famous and known, is not strange, he is part of the leadership and is a Presidential Advisor. He is also a former leader of the Special Forces Command. Therefore, he has been in key roles on occasions and also gotten military training and teachings in specialized school in the United States. So it is not like he has no skills, but being a profound leader of the Republic. He is not and has no entitlement to be.

Even if the President of current believes so and trying to make it seem so. But that is only in his delusional mind. The makeshift of trying to forge a scheme to prepare next elections for Maj. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba is insane, but also shows the lack of understanding of certain key elements that are lingering in the public. The people are already tired of the father and his rule, why would they trust the son to be better or be less of crook in charge? It’s true they are two different persons and theoretically be totally different. However, he has been within the reach of power all his life, seen how his father has maneuvered and acted. Without a doubt, the son will do the same as father. Treat the Republic as he playground and crush the ones who stands in his way. He has already on few occasions proven the quality of SFC and used it even to exile the Rwenzururu King to the Baganda.

Therefore, I doubt people want a man like this, the only reason for his rise and his position, is not for his brilliance, not for his street-smarts or his public persona. Do he really have one worth considering? Even certain NRM historicals has more of a public standing and deeper roots in society, than the son of Yoweri. Let’s be clear. The youths who made this show, we’re most likely paid for it and their gear was made by the Museveni family themselves. To try to make it look like there are people who wants him.

The only time Muhoozi mattered a lot was back in 2013, when Gen. David Sejusa or Tinyefuza who dropped a few dossiers too Red Pepper and Daily Monitor, which initially was closed and suspended by authorities within May 2013. Part of the Second Letter from the General was this, which is striking in itself: “Of course it takes the lead off the can and its not only bad for the boy but actually dangerous to that ambition. Thats the truth. But of course its like the “tower of babel” you wonder if they they understand even what they are saying.( A distinction should be made between Muhozi the man and Muhozi the UPDF officer. I personally would never for even a second discuss the affairs of that young man as a person, for it would be wrong and unacceptable. But then once you make him a general in the army, he ceases to be a private person in that regard and must pass certain scrutiny. )” (General David Sejusa, May 2013).

So if you have forgotten the whole thing, this is even as revealing of the long-term plan of it all: “The government’s anger was prompted by a story in the paper said to reveal details of a plan by senior officials to assassinate rivals opposed to a scheme by President Yoweri Museveni to arrange for his son to succeed him in office. By exposing deep rifts within the ruling establishment, the paper has shaken Uganda’s political establishment to the core. The Monitor quoted extensively from a letter by a senior intelligence officer, General David Sejusa, calling for an investigation into claims that the government is planning to target opponents of the so-called “Muhoozi Project,” an alleged plan to pave the way for 39-year-old Brigadier Kainerugaba Muhoozi (pictured left), commander of an elite army unit, to take over the presidency. The state-owned Uganda Communications Commission (which controls licensing) warned radio stations that they would be shut down for airing the story of Gen. Sejusa’s letter” (Batanda, 2013).

Now in the 2017, the state and agencies are clearly preparing something again. Since they even uses their Newspaper to prop up the son. The son whose supposed to have no ambition and not wanting to become President(he said that earlier this year, not that anyone believed the man). Now, there are Youth prepared for seeing him in. It just happens as the lifting of the age limit is prepared for his father. Just so perfectly and the timing so striking.

That the Muhoozi Project surfaces like an old fish. The old fish is now stinking up the place with the family succession, to a man with no merit or finesse in public. There isn’t anything that could be said about Muhoozi that gives way to say, he should be our next leader. Other than he is the son of previous one. Like that is good fix, just look at the Democratic Republic of Congo and Joseph Kabila. He is such a lovely fellow and statesmen, who has no trouble killing and creating insurgency to stay in power. Not like we need another country with that issue, just because Muhoozi is following the bloodline of Museveni.

I would not be surprised if the 2013 Project came to life and lit up the place. Put some petrol into the steamy age-limit debates and just proves the entitlement of the Museveni-Clan. Since he own the removal of the Age Limit from the Constitution. Clearly, he doesn’t give a fig about how people sees him or his rule anymore. He just wants to rule and if that meaning to secure his family set, when he is left. Then be it. But Muhoozi is a non-character and nobody who seems like a candidate for leadership. He is just there because of his father. There aren’t anything of his persona that says, well, he could be “good one” even. He just have too, since he is already there.

All of that is nonsense and I had to bring up the May 2013 drama around Red Pepper, Daily Monitor and Gen. Sejusa, because it was said to be “Project Museveni” by the government back-then. Clearly, they we’re lying. But that is not so weird too. It is not strange that Museveni wants his son to someday take his place, but that doesn’t mean he has a right to do so. There are enough men and woman who has more public standing, natural leaders or even has the public persona that can be trusted compared to him.

With time there will not be less of leaders and people who could contest for the role, enough people with leadership experience and public standing to take the place of Museveni. There are so many who could and who deserves to try. The Project Muhoozi is back in full steam, by the demands of the old man, not because the people really want him. It is just propaganda by the state who wants people to believe so. Peace.

Batanda, Jackee – ‘A leak in high places puts Ugandans on edge’ (22.05.2013) link: http://foreignpolicy.com/2013/05/22/a-leak-in-high-places-puts-ugandans-on-edge/

Opinion: Gen. Muntu wished back to NRM by Lumumba, is this another sign of disarming the opposition?

Well,  since the General Election of 2016, there been all sorts of play from the National Resistance Movement (NRM). Where the Opposition parties has either gotten ministerial posistions, EALA slots or even been detained. In ways of solidifying the NRM regime and their President for life – President Yoweri Museveni. Therefore the news that the NRM Secretary General Justine Lumumba wishes the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) President Gen. Mugisha Muntu, shows there some foul play in the cards. The deck is usually sealed and this cannot be the party line, as the talks of succession is a stalemate as long as Museveni breathes on planet earth. But take a brief look at the quotes from the Secretary General Lumumba.  

“Ms Justine Lumumba, who represented First Lady Janet Museveni at a belated Women’s Day celebrations for Ntungamo District at Rwenanura Primary School playground in Rweikiniro Sub-county, said: “Gen Muntu comes from this district, from Kitunga, I even know the village where he comes from, he is a sober man but he is walking with wrong company. Talk to him as his brothers that he comes back, if there are any grievances or anything that angered him, we can resolve it.” (…) “He is someone who can bring back the presidency here; he is such a good player in a bad team,” she added” (Rumanzi, 2017).

That Lumumba said the FDC was a bad team, was expected as she has that view of anyone who isn’t in the NRM Organization or the Movement. Therefore, that Gen. Muntu is around Lukwago and Besigye, means he is in a bad team. That Muntu is suddenly in the wrong company, means that he isn’t directly a part of the NRM. The right party and company is the NRM. That is if you get the deeper meaning of what NRM Secretary Lumumba was saying yesterday.

The good company is the 31 year old regime under President Museveni. It is not like the NRM has ever consider succession and using that as sweet gift to Gen. Muntu is most likely hogwash. As the Maj. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga is most likely the next in line, if the President get his wish. Why else would he stop the Daily Monitor Press a few years back when the Gen. Sejusa tale leaked to the Press?

If the NRM would offer anything it would be a ministerial role, an ambassador and trading away the normative and legitimate leadership role of Gen. Muntu. Even if Gen. Muntu sometimes isn’t progressive, aggressively enough against the regime, who use all sorts of tricks to manipulate and control the Republic. Therefore this must been seen as a ploy to destabilize the FDC. As they hope the fraction and people loyal to Muntu would be swayed back to fold. Leave Besigye and the hardliners behind.

This would be typical way of offering a gift and then destroy the competition, as they know many of the FDC NEC and FDC leadership has no real need of either going back to the NRM or any wish to be back there. Since many of the FDC leaders has been former NRM, especially the ones who established the party and wanted a significant different party than the NRM.

So the Machiavellian approach by Secretary General Lumumba and the NRM, can be seen as a tactic to undermine the leader in the FDC; while offering and saying he would be fit to come after President Museveni. Like the NRM could offer anyone that, as the NRM couldn’t do that to their own like Amama Mbabazi or back-in-the-day Kizza Besigye. So why should Gen. Mugisha Muntu suddenly be good enough? Do the NRM think their citizens are generally stupid?

Peace!

Maj. Gen. Muhoozi, says “he has no ambition for Presidency”, but the meteorically rise seems like ploy to usher him in!

No, I do not have the ambition to be President. I am very happy being in the military and that is where I intend to stay for some time,” Maj Gen Muhoozi said (NBS TV Uganda, 31.01.2017).

Major. General Muhoozi Kainerubaga spoke out in an interview yesterday, not that it out of water now that he has gone through the ranks in the military, had years of specialized training in the United States and we’re running the Special Forces Command or the Flying Squad. That he is the son of the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, do show that family matters and the reason for the meteorically rise. Maj. Gen. Kainerubaga can claim otherwise, but deep in his heart he knows that is the reason.

Muhoozi Kainrubaga has been a project in the making, that when revealed documentation from Gen. David Sejusa aka Tinyefuza who leaked it to the Daily Monitor. “Gen. Sejusa has kicked up a storm after the Daily Monitor last week published a letter he wrote to the director of the Internal Security Organisation, asking that he investigates claims of plots to assassinate top government officials opposed to the “Muhoozi Project”” (Splash Radio, 13.05.2013). So the questionable rise to power and to become a Senior Presidential Advisor after years inside the army. Therefore, the letter didn’t just stir troubles for Gen. Sejusa, but also closed the Daily Monitor after the release of the letter. Like the Government and Army didn’t like the release of this information.

So if the army and government didn’t like this internal plan come into the public. Than, why was their an issue with the closure of a newspaper and the leadership? One of who is today the Presidential Spokesperson Don Wanyama, who know is crony instead of an opposition voice inside the Monitor journalist.

In 2016 to the Observer he said:

As you heard, I don’t have the ambition to be president. I am very happy being in the military and that is where I intend to stay for some time. It [Muhoozi Project] doesn’t exist, non-existent – that is a red herring. You have never heard of a message where I promote myself, it is always from the promotions board. That is the process in the military” (David Muhumuza – The Observer, 25.05.2016).

So that the Maj. Gen. Muhoozi could easily now be the giant plan the President has in the making, as the years goes and his age sinks in, he needs somebody to carry the torch. Still, the Ugandan Republic isn’t a family company or LLC. Even if the President acts of the state funds and Bank of Uganda is his coffers.

That their has been less of questionable reporting of the acts of the Flying Squad or the Special Force Command as they have violently oppressed people, can be understood that the Maj. Gen. Muhoozi has even had a close relationship and it could be romantic with Journalist Sheila Nduhukire, who has traveled with the general to Somalia and other UPDF missions with him. So the comforting news instead of questing the UPDF and rise to power, haven’t really been there.

Therefore, the son of the President except for the dossier released by Gen. Sejusa has skated by and enjoyed the rise. While other in his generation haven’t gotten to his place or had the possibilities. They have all been left behind or is still in lower level in the army. If it wasn’t for being groomed and made ready for bigger stage. The army is also so he should be rougher and experienced in battle, as the father was a bush-warrior and general. The father wants the same for his son and therefore the Special Force Command was to check if he could do operations and could carry out assaults on the ones who needed to be silenced.

However, he continues to play the role of I have “no plan” and doesn’t want to be President. Still, the rise to power and the senior adviser role is made for him to be the next in line. Gen. Muhoozi, the Presidents son certainly has the initial hope to keep the torch lit. Still, this is not family business, even if the President acts like it is.

President Museveni as all fathers wants the best for his family and sons. That means that Gen. Muhoozi has gotten special treatment and own parts of the army to lead. Therefore, he went from Special Force Command into the Senior Adviser role, proves that the father wants him to learn the political game too. So that he knows the guns and commando operations. Now he will learn to venture into politics.

So this is yet another step into the reigns and the control of the National Resistance Movement, as the father and son plans away to make it natural change. How it will happen, but surely Gen. Muhoozi has no plans to dwindle into a village and be a farmer, just like the father has no plans to run one of his farms. As the NRM Regime plans to subtly subdue and suddenly over night change from Museveni to Muhoozi. Like we didn’t know and forgotten the dossier in 2013.

The Presidency in Uganda isn’t a family matter, even if the current President thinks so. He can even switch the constitution and amend it. So that Muhoozi by law has the rights, soon the President might do as they have worked for long change the age-limit. Museveni has no legitimacy and would use all tricks to stay in power. Therefore, using his son as sideshow could possibly be a sort of play of the old man. Still, he would also see that Muhoozi takes over for him when he is done.

We can just wait and see, if like the first lady becoming a minister in the cabinet, the son could soon in the next shuffle in Parliament become a Minister for Defense, so that he follows the family line. Museveni was a Minister for Defense, before becoming a rebel and going against the then Obote government. Peace.

Opinion: Fake Conspiracy to clear the gates for Muhoozi and oppress the Opposition to interconnected the supposed plot to ‘overthrow’ the NRM regime…

UPDF Rwenzori

In the midst of the fire and the oppression, men can wonder why the oppressive state continues to forge stories, charges and reasons for detaining. They can wonder why the government continues to claim conspiracy against the up-high and coup d’état against the sitting president, as they once back in the day took to the gun and overthrew an ‘illegitimate regime’ of the day.

The National Resistance Movement are right now in a ghost hunt, claiming DP connected man in Gulu, Makindye barracks was shut-up by one soldier who wouldn’t accept to be detained, Lira barracks have solders and colonels been detained by the government forces. Even CDF Gen. Katumba Wamala reported detained at Makindye and Col. Dan Opit Odwee been detained after Gulu Barracks attack. Together with so many other soldiers and such who has been picked up in their own home and not made report of since departed with security forces from their homes or work.

Besigye Detained

This together with the pick-up of Forum for Democratic Change men like Hon. Michael Kabaziguka who have been tortured and detained at SIU Kireka, also other men have been taken for question and been asked for in the conspiracy. While innocent police men and others have been killed in the attacks of Lira, Gulu and Makindye, like flies with no names. Like they don’t matter in the grand scheme of things, as they are useful pawns on the chess set, to set the center stage for the grand conspiracy that are made up by the state for ‘attacking’ and planned ‘coup d’état’ against the Presidency.

It’s all like a wind, it is there, but no visible, you believe it exist, and can feel it now and then, but it is not something that is static and visible to the naked eye. The wind just touches the ones that are literally within the wind-fall, but for the ones who is not there it is just hearsay. So with this in mind, the UPDF and UPF are creating a ghost, a conspiracy that doesn’t exist and at the time, use feasible means to oppress the ones that are not loyal to the “above high”.

Besigye Nakawa 18.05.2016

As the named up rebel forces, acronyms of so-called rebels will pop-up like staged theatrics from the Government, as they comes when needed and gone as quick as they surfaced on the ground. The ability of the army and security forces continues to spin the stories and tales, as the validity of the norm. This is happening as they trying to combine the wished rebellion in the army connected with the handpicked victim of Hon. Kabaziguka and the ‘treason charged’ former FDC Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye, while he lingers waiting trials for all kind of charges all over Uganda.

The ones that swallows all of this as sudden wildfires and approaches of misdeeds, does not see the ripple effect of both clearing the army of men that are not loyal to cadre-line of the President and the wished escalating career of his son. Former Brig. Muhoozi, whom in the end also swallowed the loyalty of former Gen. David Sejusa. This is all connected as the Police Force and the Army is all fitted together with central leadership of the President and his cabinet, therefore they still need representatives in Parliament from the UPDF. Because militarism is far from dead, as the guns are close to the heart of the president.

Muhoozi Museveni

That the NRM Regime are right after the General Election going after the ones that supposed not loyal to the Party line and not offering their vote of confidence to the regime, are the ones that are supposed to be detained and taking down the men who doesn’t follow blindly the leadership of the day. This is like the shooter of Makindye Barracks Sergeant Isaac Obua who killed people at the barracks. The ones of Gulu barracks came more in systematic operations and have not really been displayed or called out in public as the men behind it, as they are surely offered some token to create a conspiracy and connect a DP Colonel Odwee to a plot to overthrow the regime. We have no certainty why the Government all of a sudden detained Col. Kibet in Lira and the backdrop behind doing so. And this happens in sort of two weeks all over; therefore there are questionable reasons for doing so. Just like a summer clean-up behind the ranks to fit the ‘Muhoozi project’ or fix more loyal men towards Mzee, as the election and activity from the UPDF didn’t live up to expectations for the President. He wanted a harder force and oppressive behavior and had to both pick ex-M23 men and also hire SPLA from South Sudan to have enough men in the streets around the General Election 2016.

This is just happening while FDC Youth Activist and others who have campaigned with the party have been taken from their homes (Kidnapped) without charges and detained, as the clear fictive oppressive behavior continues with the same speed, as the government tries to silence the opposition and really “crash the opposition” as Mzee stated during the campaign trail during 2015/2016. Just as the FDC General Secretary of Lubaga Division Prince Kahemba Babi who have been detained and kidnapped since before 12th June of 2016 and still not surfaced or any token from the authorities, this happens as the oppression and detain also soldiers and leaders of the army.

issues clinton uganda

So the authorities are cracking down on FDC, like they have done with steady speed since February. Now they are also going after the Army, like they are clearing the shop for the son of Mzee. That is not a surprise, it’s more like a necessity from him as this is the time to do so, as he is already weaken, his legitimacy is not there, as he wasn’t really invited or met by local dignitaries in Germany, proven the signal between Western Countries towards the former new-breed leadership sponsored through Bill Clinton in the 1990s. Therefore the established approached now is to make ready for Muhoozi to control more of the army and not only ‘the Flying-Squad’ or Special Force Command.

So there are many questions and even wonders behind the recent attacks on the Makindye, Gulu and Lira Barracks around the country, while there been violence in other areas like the Kasese and Rwenzori Sub-Region. These been where the UPF have used any kind of reasoning for the killings and taking down Royal Guards of the Rwenzururu Kingdom. But that is not looked really into, as the government sent army men and blasted down as many as possible, both in villages and also around the Palace. Though IGP Kayihura want another story as he want to clean his hands from the blood, as he doesn’t want and see that ‘the Flying Squad’ also went in to renegade against the people and their cultural leader.

So there to many questions and unsolved stories, while the conspiracies and the state affairs are still by all means oppressive and adherent not creating security, but clashing against their own citizens instead of securing their neighborhood. The Police, Army and Security Forces are targeting the opposition and the men of the army who might not be connected directly to Mzee, while the ‘Muhoozi project’ fumes on as he was recently promoted Major General. These kinds of actions cannot happen and not be interconnected, only the blind, cannot see the connection between the promotion, the cleaning in the barracks and the conspiracy that is made-up between the FDC leadership and the UPDF men that are detained in army and the Opposition party. Peace.

Gode nyheter – om Daily Monitor & Red Pepper! +Goverment Statement 30th May 2013

Her er det først et par gladmeldinger fra kjente i FDC og oppisjonen. For så en offisiell statement fra minister i regjeringen til NRM. Check it out!

Uganda Talks: “Government to let Daily Monitor resume business today, Red Pepper to open after on going negotiations are finalised” ca kl 10 Norsk tid.

Francis Mwjiukye: “Monitor, KFM, and Dembe have finally been reopened. The ugly police gangs have left”. Denne oppdateringen kom rundt 12.30 i dag. Francis var på dette tidspunktet usikker på Red Pepper blir åpnet.

Det spekuleres om internasjonalt press har satt dette igang. Noe jeg har ingen anelse om. Annet enn at det var på tide. Hvis landet skal påstå å ha pressefrihet! Aga Khan er forhåpentligvis litt gladere idag. Selv om han sikkert føler seg snytt av oppførelsen til President Museveni. Sagaen er langt fra Project Muhoozi er langt fra ferdig!

GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ON THE POLICE SEARCH AT THE MONITOR PUBLICATIONS, THURSDAY 30TH MAY 2013

1. On the 7th day of May 2013, the Daily Monitor published a classified letter headed “proposed investigations” dated 29th April 2013 purportedly written by Gen. David Sejusa, addressed to the Director General, Internal Security Organisation and copied to a number of senior security officers, including the Chief of Defence Forces and the Director General, External Security Organisation.

2. Soon after that publication, the Police initiated investigations to establish the authenticity of the letter published by the Daily Monitor.

3. According to the preliminary inquiries, it was established that the Director General, Internal Security Organisation, to whom the letter was addressed, as well as the officers to whom the letter was copied never received it. Evidently, it was only the Daily Monitor in possession of the letter.

4. The Police commenced investigations by asking the journalists and the editors of the Monitor to explain how they got the letter and also to avail the letter. However, the Monitor employees declined to cooperate.

5. Subsequently on the 9th of May 2013 the Police summoned the two journalists who were the authors of the story as well as the Managing Director, Monitor Publications Ltd. They reported to CID Headquarters on the 14th of May 2013. However, they refused to co-operate with the Police.

6. Given the lack of co-operation from the editors and journalists of the Monitor Publications Ltd, on 16 May 2013 the Police applied for and obtained an Order from Court compelling the Monitor Publications Ltd to avail not only the document but also state its source. Again the Monitor Publications Ltd declined to respect the court order.

7. Subsequently on the 20th of May 2013, the Police decided to go to court again and, this time obtained a search warrant authorizing the search of the Monitor premises for the letter as well as any other document related to or similar to it.

8. On the 24th of May 2013, the Police was served with a court order canceling the search warrant earlier issued. Noteworthy, the order canceling the search warrant was issued by the same Magistrate who had earlier issued the search warrant. The Police found this to be highly irregular and has challenged the order and the matter is before courts of law.

9. In order to facilitate the continuation and completion of the search, the Police invoked the provisions of S. 27 of the Police Act, which empowers Police to conduct searches without a search warrant.

10. It should be noted that from the time the search commenced, the Police treated the Monitor premises and had them sealed, as a scene of crime, because apart from the letter, certain crimes had been committed by the Monitor Publications Ltd in particular violations of the Official Secrets Act.

11. In the meantime the management of the Monitor Publications Ltd made contact with me and on the 24th and 25th May 2013 the Government and representatives of the Monitor Publications met in an effort to amicably settle the matter.

12. Later on Sunday the 26th of May 2013, the management of the Nation Media Group met H.E the President in Addis Ababa, where he was attending the AU summit, as a follow up to the above mentioned meeting.

13. As a follow up to the undertakings in the meeting between H.E the President and the Nation Media Group, a delegation led by myself met representatives of the Nation Media Group at the Ministry of Internal Affairs. On the Government side, the meeting was attended by Hon. Rose Namayanja Nsereko, Minister for Information and National Guidance, Gen. Kale Kayihura, Inspector General of Police, Mr. Christopher Gashirabake, the Ag. Solicitor General and Mr. Ofwono Opondo, In-coming Executive Director, Government Media Centre. The Nation Media Group was represented by Dr. Simon Kagugube, Chairman Monitor Publications Ltd and Mr. Linus Gitahi CEO. In the meeting the Media Nation Group made written undertakings to the Government.

Specifically, the following are the highlights:

(i) They highly regretted the story that led to the closure of the Monitor newspaper and KFM and Dembe Radio stations.

(ii) They undertook that the Monitor newspaper will only publish or air stories which are properly sourced, verified and factual.

(iii) They also undertook that the reporting in the Monitor newspaper will always be objective, fair and balanced.

(iv) They undertook to be sensitive to and not publish or air stories that can generate tensions, ethnic hatred, cause insecurity or disturb law and order.

(v) They acknowledged that there had been violations of their editorial policy by their Reporters and Editors in Uganda. They availed us with a copy of their Editorial Policy and undertook to ensure that both the letter and the spirit of the policy are respected.

(vi) They undertook to tighten their internal editorial and gate keeping processes, to ensure that stories that impact especially on national security are subjected to the most rigorous scrutiny and verification process before they run.

(vii) Further they undertook to seek regular interface with the Government of Uganda to ensure that the undertakings they have made will be respected and implemented.

(viii) They undertook to ensure that the Monitor Publications Ltd will observe and comply with the laws of Uganda. In particular they committed themselves to co-operate with the Police on the ongoing investigations.

14. In view of the above mentioned commitments and undertakings by the management of the Nation Media Group/Monitor Publications to the Government; and at the request of the management, the Police has called off the cordon of the Monitor premises so that they resume their normal business as police continue with the search.

Her kommer flere sannheter fram. Denne sagaen er ikke over. Peace!

General Sejjusa andre brev(second letter) – kommentar til stenging av Daily Monitor Uganda og Project Muhoozi.

(Bilde – Tatt fra Daily Monitor Uganda’s Facebook side)

General Sejjusa aka Tinyefuza et nytt brev. Etter at politiet og styresmaktene har stengt av Daily Monitor, Red Pepper og radio statsjoner i landet. Som jeg har dekt ved flere anledninger den siste dagene. Derfor måtte jeg bare spre dette brevet også. Slik at du får hans synspukt. Brig. Muhoozi veien opp til toppen. Som er nå et åpent sår som hele verden kan se.  Les brevet. Det sier alt!

General David Sejusa’s latest Statement – confirmed by his legal team as authentic:

SEJJUSA’S LETTER IN FULL
First, i wish to extend my sympathies to all those that have suffered personal injury, physical ,monetary or any other during this difficult period in the history of our country. Those media houses that were closed and the thousands of workers that have been rendered redandunt including those young pepple who work as news paper vendors on our streets,i extend my solidarity and reassurances that your struggle is not in vain.

The excuse given is that they are searching for the Sejusa letter. Well,they are not because the writer of the letter is known and in any case, Redpepper never published that letter. It just published a press release from lawyers .

So what is this closure about?

One,its panic. Those who peddle the nonsense that the muhoozi debate is good for him think people are stupid. Well,they are not. If its good then why close the papers and radios? Let the papers write freely about it and sure you will then get your reward. Of course it takes the lead off the can and its not only bad for the boy but actually dangerous to that ambition. Thats the truth. But of course its like the “tower of babel” you wonder if they they understand even what they are saying.( A distinction should be made between Muhozi the man and Muhozi the UPDF officer. I personally would never for even a second discuss the affairs of that young man as a person, for it would be wrong and unacceptable. But then once you make him a a general in the army, he ceases to be a private person in that regard and must pass certain scrutiny. )

Secondly, its intended to frighten everybody so that you surrender your country to the highest bidder. I will deal with the question of oppression and fear in my subsequent paragraphs but suffice to state here that the people have matured. You can see it in the resilience of those media houses, those young workers. That’s what is worrying those in power. An assertive population is a death sentence to any regime that becomes intolerant. They know it and hence the terror .

But whatever the case, its rather sad that a regime that cant create jobs for the youth can deprive the few that have some work of that opportunity. There will be no regime survival if the youth are not employed.

For today,however,i wish to address my fellow ugandans on one pertinent issue. This is the issue of abusing the law and institutions just to keep the current leadership in power.Just this one central issue,if not resolved, and pretty soon will lead to ceaseless strife.

This is the issue of refusing to retire officers from the army so that they are rendered captive forever, so that none can challenge the regime. In essence, using UPDF as a prison so that anyone who threatens or is even roumered to have political ambitions is threatened with military law,(,( death sentece and other trash.). This became especially so after Dr Besigye challenged mr Museveni for the presidency. Well, millions of ugandans are perishing due to the breakdown of the state to such an extentent that those death threats are of no consequence. But anyway the point is that military law has become a political weapon for those in charge of the state to keep all potential political challengers under lock and key using that bogey of military law. Thats why Brigadier Tumukunde for instance,would not get a higher sentence than caution. Because sentencing him to a harsher punishment would automatocally remove him from the military. Then what do you do with him when he gets out? Imagine 70,year olds who joined the army before some of us started school still serving and on the army pay roll, the tax payer shouldering the burden to pay thousands of officers, many even on katebe (without work in the army)so that they keep their mouth shut! This abuse must stop. Its this single most abuse of our officers that is creating discontent and anger within the military which is now spilling over to the streets? You remember my case when i wanted to quit yhe military in 1996. Since that time i have not been in the main stream command of the military. So why was i not allowed to retire? Simple, to keep my mouth shut and kill any political ambitions i may have. Its so sickening! I had one person say that i have presidential ambitions, they think its a crime. Thats the mind set. No one else except them,should have political ambitions. So vain and degenerate!
It becomes even more degrading when you want to fast track children to command positions. Its immoral to keep a former commander of the army or such senior people in an army commanded by their children and grandchildren.

The decent thinng would be to retire in honour those gallant sons and daughters of uganda who gave their everything and covered you even in your sleep against all danger. Ofcourse the reason is clear why they cant be allowed to go, eliminate any threat to any power related projects.

However, am now saying enough is enough. Retire us and Spare us the humiliation of having to salute our grandchilderen. Period. Why have this leadership become so vengeful against the people who brought and gave them that power? There is a verse in the bible Hebrews chapter 11:4 which says” Even though he died he speaks”! I know those gallant sons and daughters who died in our struggle, and even those living, whisper to you at night. I would love to know how you answer those whispers! Ofcourse for the record, betrayal never goes unpunished. It may not be you who may suffer it but it surely comes to visit at its own time.

The weopons of the all oppressors are similar. They use the same weapons of control. These are Deception,fear, ignorence of the oppressed, terror, threats, unjust laws, oppressive systems,vulgar, decadent and immoral ways to dehumanise them etc. These weigh down the courage of the oppressed like you see gravity pulling us to the ground. The gravitational pull used against the oppressed is murder, torture, threats etc. Many of us resisted them before. So for me that LINE OF LIMITATION does not apply. I refuse to succumb to perpetual abuse. You must set us free and set my suffering comrades free or we shall free ourselves. I speak for those gallant officers who are virtual prisoners in the army but cant say a word because they fear to be framed and courtmatialled or worse. Let them go. Let them retire, with or without benefits. Freedom and dignity are better that retirement benefits which is merely used as an axcuse.

Thank you Ugandans for that incredible support.

Just remember, always, uganda is for all of us all.
