Opinion: Does the EOM’s have any relevance anymore?

The ones who knows me, knows how I follow elections and the stakes at any election. I will follow and see the campaigns, the political framework and the polls itself. This is seeing how all stakeholders, all parties and state institutions hopefully goes in harmony. They are all working for separate goals, but still for a common goal to get the proper representation within the National Assembly, the Parliament or the highest office, Prime Minister/President. However, that might be.

That is why I look up to election and follow them. Because the elections, usually show the dire truth, the reality of how people and how the leadership handles its people. How, the state and how the parties are addressing each other. The real is coming out. You cannot fake the actions and have just one instance of impartiality over the months of campaigns before any polls. You just cannot muster that fakeness. No one has that ability. That is why I follow elections, to see and to know the leaders, the ideals and the prospects of reigniting the leadership or renewal of it.

With this in mind, with the years from 2015 until the fresh start of 2019. I have follow directly enough. To ask, does the foreign and multi-national Election Observation Missions (EOM) still have relevance in out time?

Yes, if it is rubber-stamping and accepting fraudulent polls, they does that properly. They are saying it is some misgivings. The votes was peaceful, the ques at the polling stations was showing public interest for the votes, but there are legal questions and problematic attachment of the Electoral Commissions or Electoral Bodies. Which has to addressed at a further date, to ensure impartial activity or independent acts of the ones responsible of the counting and announcing the results.

However, that sort of activity from an EOM gets old. Get old really quick. As the Foreign Envoys and the Ambassadors are acting as stepping stones, instead of aliens with a free mind. They are acting as Noble’s of the elites and accepting the inevitable. They are together with the EOM just ensuring the frauds happening. They are looking and seeing, but at the same distancing themselves. Not taking action or really saying the truth.

That is why the EOMs are losing value. They are coming as tourists, who just write long reports. Showing some misgivings, but not really telling the reality. They are condemning some default problems, coming with recommendations to the government. However, lots of times, there is no follow up or no acts of the donors who pays for these EOMs to be there even. Therefore, the value of the aftermath, isn’t even there. If there is no legal reform or electoral laws change after the recommended statements. Than, their visit and popping by the polls is totally pointless. Unless, they are just there as a gift of legitimacy. Surely, that is the only thing they give.

They are giving no bounds of questions or even trying to prove, if there are any problems within the polls. Surely, it must be mandate of the missions, the operations and the lack of resources. If not, the respect of the sovereign nations. That is fine and dandy, but if there is there to observe and state, what so many are seeing elsewhere. When, the evident of a rigged elections, why not say it publicly?

That is why I don’t see them as relevant. When the public are saying the votes are rigged, the local media are saying it, but the EOM says its with misgivings and needs some electoral reforms. That is when I see a red-flag.

So, maybe it is time to stop funding these operations. Unless, the partners have an objective, to keep dictators, their fraudulent elections sensitized and ensure legitimacy for their man/party in-charge, yet another term. Peace.

Statement by Members of Rwenzori Fraternity in Respect of Recent Acts of Violence Reported in Kasese District (14.03.2016)

Kasese Railway Station

As members of the Rwenzori Fraternity, a non-partisan grouping of people hailing from the region, working in different parts of Uganda but mainly in Kampala & Kasese, wish to state as here under.

We learnt of the unfortunate events that happened in Kasese on the 10th day of March 2016 after the just concluded local council 111 elections wherein violence broke up in Buhuhira and Kikongo villages in Hima Town Council that led to the unfortunate loss of lives and destruction of property. We condemn in the strongest terms the perpetuators of violence and send our deep felt sympathies to the families that lost their dear ones both civilians and in security forces. We also pray for quick recovery for those we have learnt are still in hospitals.

While many versions of these events have been out in the media and from government officials namely post election violence, allegations of a Yiira state, tribal or ethnic conflicts, etc, And Whereas we appreciate the concerns of the different stakeholders and the findings so far we wish to state the following. The violence that erupted was purely post election violence that came out of a poorly managed electoral process.

The so called Yiira state is a concoction that has no basis and founding among the Population in the region and we are equally perturbed by this malicious propaganda that has no basis but intended to taint and alienate us the people of the Rwenzori region from the Uganda that we have always belonged to and we treasure.

Ethnic violence.

Where as we recognize that for some time there has been some underlying political issues in the region that are funned by selfish politicians, We do not believe that this was the root cause of the violence that erupted in the past week.

We have lived as different ethnic groups in the region. We have been accommodative to each other socially, politically and economically and we would not wish anybody to appear to destroy the co existence that has been existent in the region for generations.

In the premises we ask our people back home in Kasese and the entire Rwenzori region to refrain from such acts that may cause violence and instead embrace peaceful and legitimate processes of resolving outstanding challenges at both individual, community and institutional levels.

We also implore government and all security agencies to take more interest in thorough intelligence gathering in the region. We call for more proactive rather than reactive approach to policing in the region. Government should endeavor to work closely with local, religious and community leaders during their operations. In the same vein, government spokespersons should desist from making alarming statements that may seem to seek to escalate the already porous situation but rather more calm statements.

We ask the government, the Civil Society Fraternity and all friends of the Rwenzori region to quickly focus on having a multi – stakeholder dialogue on the Rwenzori question and encourage local communities to actively engage in these peaceful efforts.

As a FRATERNITY, we think now is the time to start the journey to a long term and sustainable peacemaking processes. We have also resolved as a Fraternity to engage the different stake holders in the region in order to find a permanent solution to the Rwenzori question.

We also implore religious leaders, all newly elected political and local leaders to work together in an endeavor to foster peace and harmony in the region.

FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY.

FOR AND ON BEHALF OF THE RWENZORI FRATENITY.

The Police shows their arrogance toward the FDC; the Police said they had the ability to fill in the Petition!

Enage 02.03.2016

Well I will start with a quote from the Uganda Police Spokesman as it says it all! Read what he is saying: “Confining Dr. Kizza Besigye could not prevent FDC from filling a petition if they wished so” – CP Fred Enaga (Kampala Dispatch, 02.03.2016) to the press on the 2nd March 2016.

The days on end with house-arrest, the days on end with detaining at Naggalama Police Station and Kira Road Police Station for going out his home, and that is not preventing him filling a petition? Mr. Fred Enaga is you listening to your own reasoning?

You guys in the Police have done everything in your power to destroy the ability for the FDC to fill a petition. You have guarded the FDC Headquarter at Najjankumbi, attacked and arrested FDC staff at one point. You have stopped FDC Officials and FDC agents who had the Declaration Results Forms. So you could get the DR forms and save face for the mismanagement of the Electoral Commission during the days after the Election Day and the tallying.

If it is arresting continuously FDC agents and men who have evidence of rigging; if that is not stifling the works on gathering evidence to file a petition, than your stupid or ignorant Mr. Enaga. But you’re just saying the words IGP Kale Kayihura want you to say.  You are just proving that the Police is one of the tools to demolish the opposition; as that is the wish of President Museveni.

If not stopping Journalist around Kasangati to report the movement of your police force is not stifling the world to know your mental violence against Dr. Kizza Besigye. Than I don’t know what freedom is?

A little example to you Mr. Enaga:

Mr. Enaga, I hope you get house-arrest, get your people who work for you perpetrated by men of law, and stifle your every movement. Take your car away from you while you go to church. Get your credited police force to get tear-gas into the offices where you work and get men with riot-gear to detain you. Guard the building you work at and not give your ability to work. I will execute this orders to this to you because I have: “intelligence that you’re terrorizing your own citizens and planning to persecute innocent people and hurting them with mambas in the street and house-arresting people without charges”.

Than you can try to do police work and speak your mind to the public. I am sure you couldn’t even put a parking ticket in Kasangati, which was the official excuse for detaining Ingrid Turinawe of FDC and NBS reporter Remmy Bhati who was on Live-TV yesterday.

I do not really wish you this treatment Mr. Enaga; the treatment your Police Force has been doing to the FDC has gone through. For the simple reason: I don’t wish any men or woman go through the hardships that the FDC are and the life that Dr. Kizza Besigye has right now. Mr. Enaga, you sound like fool and act like a fool. Please look at yourself and your police force, be proud of your nonsense. Peace.

Ugandan Elections: How Museveni Killed Democracy (Youtube-Clip)

“This week on KIRWA, President Yoweri Museveni once again rigged the election in Uganda, declaring himself the elected president for the 5th time” (Kirwa, 2016).

Fourth Day of Presidential Rallies in Uganda + Electoral Commission Rigging leaks

M7 121115

In which nation is it natural that the President who campaigns rides around in Personal Armored Carrier in Abletong. While Dr. Kizza Besigye had a special day on the road helping other traffic and vehicles to cross broken bridge in the Kanungu district. Later he held rallies in the area. Professor has turned into social media. Maureen Kyala continued to campaign in Jinja. Ben Binaro has even had a campaign and the first campaign day for Abed Bwainiko in Kairo and Budaka! Congrats, welcome to the race and Go-Forward was in Luweero today! And here are the details, also so side-notes. Not as sad as yesterday, though the ones caring for the economic future for Uganda should mourn. But let’s take a look!

TDA said this today:

“Today, Dr. Besigye and the FDC team winding up a rally in Kanungu while Hon. Mbabazi and the Go Forward team have effectively engaged Luwero. Each one of them committing to bring about change and create conditions for equal opportunity and shared prosperity”.

Quote of the Day:

“Amama Mbabazi is working with Electoral Commission to rig elections and he has people everywhere intimidating my supporters. I will not accept the results if EC declare Mbabazi or Kizza Besigye. We need an independent EC “ – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni teold NRM CEC Members.

Besigye Kanungu 121115

FDC Rallies today:

Dr. Kizza-Besigye Wrn and the FDC Team are stuck in Kanungu because of the broken bridge. After 30 years, NRM is proud to preside our a broken infrastructure system. We can’t wait to sort out this mess. Kigwa Leero

Finally,‪the FDC has resumed the journey on the Kabare-Kanungu road after the cars were pushed across a broken bridge . Dr Besigye will be addressing a number of meetings in the district before the final rally in the afternoon. We shall overcome,some day (40 minutes later).

At Kihihi Town rally Dr. Kizza Besigye said this:

“”When this corrupt government is out of power next year in May, the tarmac road that started from Ntungamo and ended in Rukungiri will be extended up to here Kanungu and up to the boarder We have an elaborate policy alternative on building infrastructure like roads that facilitate free movement of persons,goods and services”.

FDC Kihihi 121115

Towards the Kanungu Town the crowds went in procession and meeting the FDC team in the town following the rallying team for party towards the venue where the rally supposed to happen. It will be where Dr. Kizza Besigye is about to have the final rally for the day. He had police escort into town when they finally arrived after struggling on the washed away roads.

Kanungu 121115 Town

Message from Dr. Kizza Besigye after Kanugu rallies:

“To the men, women, young people and brave children that defied the rains in Kanungu we say thank you as Forum for Democratic Change – FDC, we believe that our nation is in need of that same spirit that we felt and saw in Kanungu where rains couldn’t stop us as a people from the change that we all deserve. The poor road network in the region speaks for itself, but together with a hand we can change the bad state of social services in Kanungu because we belong to a nation with a lot of resources. ‪#‎AreYouReady? ‪#‎IamReady ‪#‎WesigeBesigye”.

M7 121115 P2

NRM rallies today:

In Abletong he drove with Personal Armored Carriers in the area to get to the venue in Abletong to have his rally! He needed the Army vehicles to get around and he has been in charge since 1986.

M7 121115 Lira and Alebtong

He had also a rally in Lira. The venue of the rally was the Golf Course in town.

Kyala 121115

TIC candidates:

Joseph Mabirizi still claims that the Police have refuted his kidnap story; he has told NBS TV that he has no reason to lie and will not be shaken.

Maureen Faith Kyala held rallies in Kamuli today and later today in Jinja.

The Prof’s campaign:

Professor Baryamureeba has official suspended his campaign, but after a day he has taken it to social media. “Has refuted claims that he has quit the race. Barya says he had only paused his campaigns, citing security concerns but vows to continue with his ambitions for the presidency. He has appealed to the Electoral Commission to ensure that candidates, especially those who don’t enjoy the benefits that come with incumbency, are supported” (NBS TV Uganda).

Today’s quote from the Prof:

Prof Baryamureeba said; “People are obsessed with public rallies. I know some people have become rally fans. They only contribute to 15 per cent of the voters yet less than 50 per cent of them actually vote. My concentration now is on the more than 70 per cent of the voters in villages and in gardens digging”.

Another General:

“Benon Biraaro, is set to hold his first rally in Budaka. Delayed harmonisation, on his part, of his campaign programme set him four days behind” (NBS TV Uganda).

Another candidate:

Abed Bwanika has held his campaign rallies in Kairo with a message of change. Also in the Budaka as well if you wondered where he was trying to hunt for votes.

Amama 121115 Wobulenzi

Go-Forward Rally:

They had a rally that was stopped by the Police in the Wobulenzi and the crowds were cut off by the UPF. They even beat some of the crowds who were wearing Amama Mbabazi T-shirts. Surely the Police have learned a lot by the NRM-Regime in the area.

Amama 121115 P3

Amama Mbabazi said this:

“Poverty Stinks! We need to fight it. We will give you an idea how we intend to do that”.

He had a rally in Matuga as well.

Amama 121115 P2

A move to Go-Forward from Dr. Kizza Besigye:

DP’s Brenda Nabukenya trounced NRM’s Rebecca Nalwanga.

But in this election, I saw FDC’s Kiiza Besigye working so tirelessly to see Nabukenya wins. He fronted the idea of having a one joint Opposition candidate and defended it so Fiercely that’s why his party did not bring any one to contest against her. He moved with her to the trenches of Luweero to canvass for votes. He left the tally Center at 3am after the returning Officer declared her the winner. I was really impressed by the kind of Support he extended to Brenda Nabukenya. Today, Hon Brenda is not for Besigye, She is decampaigning him, She is going Forwad. She Believes Rt. Hon. Amama Mbabazi is better than the man who made her (My sources say so).

She put announcements on the radio inviting all the people of Luwero to attend Hon. Amama Mbabazi’s Fourth Rally today.

Deflection to Go-Forward:

Mary Alip goes independent and also becomes a part of Go-Forward she runs for MP in Moko Sub-county in  Lira District.
