The Calvary has yet again blocked Kasangati; The Police are dumbfounded about the whereabouts of Besigye!

Kasangati 09.04.2016 P4

Long live the Forum for Democratic Change! This here is the story that is nearly to good to be true. As the house have surveillance and had many more guards than the ordinary State House in Entebbe and Nakasero. It says the story of the level of quality of the Uganda Police. As their DPC Kasangati, James Kawalya cannot feel cool today.

That IGP Kale Kayihura cannot feel good, as he have had the control of the situation and must feel his spine shaking today. That must be the general feeling as his boss, the Don Museveni is in the mountains of Rwenzori shooting and hunting for accidental victims of the Post-Election attacks.

So the Police earlier today detained Ingrid Turinawe the FDC Mobiliser and also the Dr. Kizza Besigye car from Kasangati, as he was not in the car towards the celebration at Nakivubo Settlement Primary School, where he was to attend and be the special guest with Erias Lukwago.

They thought they caught him and got him good. Besigye’s car has yet again towed-in by the authorities to the Kasangati Police Station or luckily the Naggalama Police Station in Mukono.  That is because they cannot help themselves.

Kasangati 09.04.2016

One newly elected FDC MP Francis Mwijuke had this story to tell:

“I drove from Dr. Kizza Besigyes House this morning on my way to town. I was in Dr. Besigyes car UAN 661V. I was being followed by Ingrid Turinawe in a Prado UAW 616W. When I joined the Nangabo rd, about 7 police vehicle broked the road and surrounded. I kept in the vehicle for about ten minutes. Later the police commander moved to me and I brought the car screens down. They found that it was me traveling in Dr. Besigyes car and Kato the driver. They then searched every where in the vehicle including under the seats. After realizing that he was not anywhere, they opened for me after like 20 minutes and I continued to town. I then had the commander pronouncing, he is in the other vehicle. Ingrid didn’t open for them for 30 minutes. When she finally opened for them and they found Dr. Besigye not in that vehicle they towed it with Ingrid in and took it to Kasangati police station due to the embarrassment”.

URN reports this:

“It remains unclear how and when Besigye left the house, but a source close to the former presidential candidate told URN that Besigye left the home shortly before the police deployment. Police is reported to have deployed at the home at 8am to prevent Dr Kizza Besigye from leaving the home” (URN, 2016).

If the Police Force is tooling up and really cutting of the roads, detaining the FDC Officials trying to get the man to planned event in Kampala; than he can’t really be free and the Police Force is again showing how much they are lying to the world. This here is a proof of the evidence of the effects of the Police State and how the affairs in Uganda are. There are even reports of Police Force going during a funeral in the country and throwing tear-gas! Think about that for a hot-minute, wait a hot-second, that is just tragic itself that the Police enters a mourning period for family and loved ones, but also coming in throwing tear-gas!

Nakivubo PS 09.04.2016

This here is while the Police searching for the FDC Presidential Candidate of Dr. Kizza Besigye and not knowning his wearabouts. It’s golden, its wonderful and proving that they need more professional guards to keep him monitored. Because this guys are wicked and hungry, not men who knows their business!

This is just remarkable that he gets out of his home, which been sieged since mid-February with guards, vans and mambas besieging his gate and area. Therefore the classic story of getting away from this is just priceless. UPF can be proud of the hard work and dedication, time to write the Don and apology and hope for forgiveness for you craft. Peace.

Police Maintains Dr Besigye Siege (Youtube-Clip)

“A cloud of uncertainty hangs over the busy Kasangati suburb, an area now synonymous with opposition Forum for Democratic Change’s demands for change.  The Police have been deployed at every turn along the Kasangati – Nangabo road; with two road blocks mounted before one reaches Dr Kiiza Besigye’s home. Bird songs can be heard in the silence. It has been mostly like this for the last 15 days, as police bids to ensure Dr Kiiza Besigye’s attempts to leave home are nipped in the bud. It is a hustle for Politicians and journalists to go beyond this particular road block.. In Kampala, Forum for Democratic Change strategists are spending sleepless nights trying to find ways of ending the blockade.  In an exclusive interview, the Party’s Secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi told NBS that the Police have only two days to leave Dr Besigye’s home.  The party plans to mobilize its supporters nationwide to march to the offices of the Electoral Commission in Kampala to force it announce Dr Besigye duly elected president” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

Dr. Kizza Besigye went to All Saints for Service; detained straight-away after Service at Kiira Road P.S.; Before escorted back to Kasangati for more House-Arrest!

Kizza Besigye 28.02.2016

This day started as it has done in the recent days at the besieged Kasangati in Wakiso District, where Dr. Kizza Besigye is under house-arrest with heavy deployment of the Police; the Police have sealed of the area and getting people detained for trying to get to the house of the presidential candidate.

Today Reverend Augustine of Namirembe Diocese in Kampala has arrived at Dr. Besigye’s residence to pick and take him to church at All Saints. First the Police officers around the home would not allow him to leave the compound. Even with the reverend taking him there!

Kizza Besigye 28.02.2016 P2

The good news before the church-service is the people turned around the car of Kizza Besigye, just as they did during the campaign and pre-election period. While the fear was gone even when he was escorted by heavy police presence like he was the most dangerous person in Uganda!

Even the Journalist have to discuss the oppertunity to monitor the situation:

“Following “serious consultations”, journalists have been allowed to enter All Saints Cathedral with their phones and cameras” (NBS TV Uganda, 28.02.2016).

All Saints 28.02.2016 KB

After some time:

“Let’s all head to All Saints, Nakasero for prayers with Dr. Kizza Besigye. He’s been released after thirty minutes of waiting and phone calls from “above” (Forum for Democratic Change, 28.02.2016).

The message from the Service at the All Saints:

“Rev Dr. Medard Birungi leading service at All Saints Cathedral Nakasero falls short of declaring Kizza Besigye president!” (…)”Uganda is going to be a nation of One Uganda One People Moving Forward in Steady Progress” (…)”God is going to punish this country. Because what is going on in Uganda is against God’s will. All institutions are dead. Hospitals are dead, school system is dead ……ooh God the Electoral Commission. …. (he pauses) Yamaweeeee….!! This nation is dead, it needs to raise again. The Uganda electoral commission…how can people go to a polling station, they vote for a person but EC declares a different person. What is going on is treating symptoms. Beating demonstrators is not a solution to Uganda. You need to ask yourself why people are demonstrating then solve the problems. God is weeping over this nation. He is weeping over Kampala today. Jesus will never leave u alone. When EC steals your election, just call the Lord and say JESUS WILL NEVER LEAVE ME ALONE!” (…)”There are people who celebrated when Jesus died on Friday but on the 3rd day, they melted like ice. Those who had put a big stone on the grave could not understand what happened.” (…)”He told a story of the disaster he went through when his team Liverpool was playing the Champions League final against AC Millan. The first half was a disaster. Liverpool had been beaten 3:0. But then the 2nd half started and Liverpool charged. At the end of it Liverpool was champion” (…)“I tell you my brothers and sisters your second half is coming. Just stay focused and steadfast. You are going to be the champion.” (Forum for Democratic Change, 28.02.2016).

All Saints 28.02.2016 KB P2

Then when he was leaving the church and the service, the Police went back to normal. The Police force started to tow his car on Nakasero Road and make sure that Dr. Kizza Besigye would not go home directly to Kasangati.

Kizza Besigye Message after the Service today:

“Glad that for first time in a week I left home. Attended All Saints church service. Now detained at Kiira Rd Police Station”.

Kiir Road 28.02.2016

Kampala Metropolitan spokesperson Partick Onyango has uttered these beautiful quotes on the detaining of Kizza Besigye at Kiira Road Police Station:

“Kizza Besigye is not arrested or detained but he is a Kiira Road Police Station he is “chatting with people”. Well, the spokesperson continued: “Kizza Besigye wanted to go home via the Kiseka Market is a “hotbed of strikes”. If you thought he was done Onyango said this to: “he is still free as a bird”. MR Onyango a free bird doesn’t ask permission to go to church or get his car towed. I think somebody should give you permission to talk, since you have today just talked nonsense.

KB 28.02.2016 Car Towed

Back to house-arrest:

“Dr Kiiza Besigye back at his Kasangati home after police escorted him there following brief detention at Kira Police Station” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).

If you wonder about the security detail to his place from Kampala to Kasangati:

“There are now three road blocks to KB’s place, One is in Lutete before you reach Kasangati, the second one is in Kasangati trading center, the third is on the route that branches off to KB’s home, Police thoroughly checks each and every vehicle, if you miss the first and second road block minus being netted, you will definitely be netted on the third one and they (police) will immediately disperse you” (Paisely, 28.02.2016)

So things are back to normal, he got a brief time of some strange sort of freedom and feel the presence of people and the country where he was campaigning for the cause of liberty and justice. Something that he still does not have; the Police continues to keep him on lock-down and under siege in his own home. This Sunday was rear, but still only a bliss moment of normalcy, but the totalitarian state that is now under control of President Museveni could not see Dr. Kizza Besigye walking around with the people as they surrounded him just on the way to Church. Peace.

Uganda Elections unfolds; Dr. Kizza Besigye under house arrest; Erias Lukwago arrested; NRM Tally Center legally address the press(?)

Kampala 20.02.2016

The third day and the polls continue to dropped while ballot boxes comes to surface as we know the police officers took them away on the polling stations. There has now been found at NRM candidates as Hon. Oulanyah of Omoro had boxes hidden, and Police had boxes containing the votes for Dr. Kizza Besigye.

Kasangati 20.02.2016

The Dr. Kizza Besigye story continues:

As the third day and the counting continues. Dr. Kizza Besigye is after being arrested twice, is now put under house-arrest in his home in Kasangati in Wakiso District, after being taken by force yesterday from the FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi.and later detained at Nagalama; and at late night driven home by Police, even if the FDC men wanted to make sure that Ingrid Turinwa was also safe, but the Police whisked away the men and sent them home. That was not only Besigye, but also Gen. Mugisha Munut and Biriggwa Wasswa.

Red Pepper writes:
“DEVELOPING STORY: Police has blocked all roads leading to the home of Kizza Besigye in Kasangati. No person is allowed to enter or leave his home. Journalists have been turned away” (Red Pepper, 20.02.2016).

Daily Monitor writes:
“A heavily armed police garrison at Dr. Besigye’s home blocks our editor, Bagyenzire Atuhaire Alex from accessing the home of the FDC presidential flag bearer; they won’t take questions on who has ordered them to block visitors to Dr. Besigye’s private home. Besigye is under siege, he can’t leave home. All entrances are blocked by police” (Daily Monitor, 20.02.2016)

As well as journalists not allowed at the gate of his home, his lawyers Daudi Mpanga and Ernest Kalibbala have been turned away at the gate. The FDC Campaign has also not been allowed to enter his home or be there together with Dr. Kizza Besigye.

Dr. Kizza Besigye was taken home by the Police without a belt, phone or money. Besigye does not have a phone for the moment, the internet in the home is jammed by the police. This is reportes of this from Winnie Byanyima the wife of Besigye .

The amount of Police in the surrounding areas:
“1200 policemen and military have been deployed on all major roads that lead to Besigye’s home in Kasangati” (Kampala FM, 20.02.2016).

Muntu 20.02.2016 Kasangati

As Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago tried to access the house of Besigye he was arrested by the Police today. FDC Party President Gen. Mugisha Muntu has not been allowed through the gates to Besigye’s home.

Amama Mbaabzi house in Kololo suburbs of Kampala was sealed off yesterday by Police and Field Formation Unit. Have not heard any reports since then, so expect that he is still under house-arrest today, and would like to be verified if not.

There have been put up roadblocks on Entebbe Highway around Lubowa and it’s been there since last night!

Roadblocks mounted on major roads in & out of Kampala: Jinja Gayaza, Kampala-Gulu, Masaka, Hoima, Kampala-Mubende & Entebbe” (WBS TV Uganda, 20.02.2016).

In Kasese:

“Reports reaching us indicate that: One person shot dead as police disperse protesters in Kasese. People are demanding release of final results for Thursday elections” (Hello Uganda, 20.02.2016).

Ofwono Opondo has continued his arrogance on today’s Capital Ganag:
“It is not enough people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything”. Comment: He has just followed the Dictator of Joseph Stalin and he is such an inspiration these days for you.

Missing boxes 20.02.2016

As the missing ballot boxes seems to surface:
“Besigye has won Acet, Odek and Omoro counties, but Police hid the boxes” (87.7 Kampala FM, 20.02.2016).

Oulanyah House 20.02.2016

Hon. Oulanyah reports:
“A total of seven white ballot boxes, three of which had pre-ticked ballot papers were found in Hon. Oulanyah’s Omoro constituency this morning, reports indicate” (Red Pepper, 20.02.2016).

Transmission of Results Omoro

Interesting right? Especially with the findings in this home as well. There is certainly big tale of fixing results from Omoro alone. And wonder if that is the only area where the elections has unfolded like this. Let all of us just think about that while the Electoral Commission adds more numbers from their cooked numbers as we speak.

Release Bond 20.02.2016

I wonder what the reason by this story:

Here is a woman released after Electoral Violence detained on 17th February and released late last night on 19th February. She was Carol Natukunda and what did she do, that is what I wonder about, what was the reason for the Police to detain her on the 17th February?

Another missing story is this one here: 

House Police 20.02.2016 UPF

What was in the house and story am I missing?

A Plot Twist:

“Kasibante has Declaration forms that show he won the 2016 Lubaga North parliamentary election. The Electoral Commission ordered by Museveni to declare Betty Kamya (Ask yourselves Why?)! The good thing the gentleman has all his forms signed by all officials” (Radio Free Buganda, 20.02.2016)

I have officially quit listening to Andrew Mwenda as he describes the world in a sense seems like a fairytale world. His tweets are like a dream-land and defending the NRM into oblivion and attacking the opposition while the opposition is jailed, detainer or arrested. Even Abed Bwanika has been detained yesterday if you didn’t capture that in the FDC saga and demonstrations in Kampala, that happen after the Police went crazy at the FDC HQ.

Find one thing wrong during my last remarks:

Today the NRM Talley Center at Jokas Hotel has addressed the media on 20.02.2016 while FDC tried to the same at their Headquarter on the 19th January and then the Helicopter with tear-gas came and the military police arrested them all. Why didn’t the Police enter and take down the NRM tally Center as the Electoral Commission is only allowed to do so, they said that yesterday didn’t they?

Well, there seems to still not being close to being a level playing-field in this elections. And there will continue with political movements until it is all uncovered. Peace.

FDC demonstrate in Mbale today!

Mbale 16.02.2016 P1

As the public gotten the news the people reacts to the arrest and violence of yesterday, even in outside of Kampala. The Forum for Democratic Change has reacted in Mbale. There the people has gone to the streets and demonstrated at the actions of the Police yesterday. Arresting their leaders; because of that they went into the central streets and around the Clock Tower. Where the Police later came with tear-gas and dispersing the crowds as they have done so diligently under the NRM-Regime! The Demonstrations started to get more heated as the Police arrested more and more FDC Supporters. As the Regional Police Commander James Ruweza is in charge of the detail and taking charge in Mbale; as surpressing the citizens in the town. The People also stormed the Central Police Station, before the boiling took over the town.

As the Police went in on the demonstration in the towns as the pictures show!

Mbale 16.02.2016 P2

Hon. Jack Wamanga  Wamai trying to calm down the rioters in Mbalè!

Mbale 16.02.2016 P3

Eye witness:

Mbale has started boiling. It is hot. The police has blocked FDCsupporters from trekking through the city. This has led to a jam at the Clock Tower”.

As more stories came forward the people reacted to the tear-gas that hurt most eyes of the FDC people in the streets. The good news is the hurt and detained FDC supporters in town that earlier got arrested got released by the Police. Even the good news it is still worrying: how the Police controls the public in a way that makes it violent, instead of creating a peaceful atmosphere as the Police does not respect the public and democratic actions as the crack-down on public meetings and public gatherings as a reactions to the violent conduct of the Police in Kampala. That is the reason why the FDC Mbale chapter went to the streets and Republic Street today to demonstrate. Peace.

FDC had successful campaigns in Entebbe; Even as the Calvary set-up roadblocks; Later in Kasanje used “live-bullet” towards the crowd!

Entebbe Road Kampala 11.02.2016 FDC Convoy

The FDC had a convoy from Kampala to Entebbe.

Today we have again seen the power and surge of people surrounding from Kampala down to Entebbe district. The days after NRM have had campaigns; as NRM have had Voter Tourism and their Steady Progress Bus Company or NRM Bus Company with the spokesperson Ofwono Opondo and Mike Sebalu as if there is trouble with the buses, they are the ones to call. While I don’t care about their manufactured Campaigned Rallies and has a picture from the little people really showed up for a stopover.

Museveni in Kayunga 08.02.2016

The FDC and Dr. Kizza Besigye had successful rallies in Entebbe that lasted late into the night; the same as yesterday in parts of Kampala; the continuation of his campaign that has been a victory lap since nomination day in November 2015. Let’s take a look!

Entebbe Road Kampala 11.02.2016 FDC Convoy P2

The Action was the first the total stop of traffic on Entebbe road as the scorn of people surrounded the convoy on the way to the campaign rallies that the People’s President headed to.

UPF 11.02.2016 Block FDC P1

On the road at the Third Hill of Entebbe or the Abaita Babiri where the Police and Police Special Forces Command (SFC) hold the supporters of the People’s President back with the roadblock as they we’re trying to get to his rally.

UPF 11.02.2016 Block FDC P3

Best witness report of the day from Mr. Baron:

“Today NRM learn once, atleast you were taught a lesson. And for those who still think there’s no change today State House Entebbe saw it with their real eyes when Besigye held rally in Entebbe with the biggest crowd who are all Entebbe residents. Museveni held his yesterday still in Entebbe and imported over 50 buses and over 50 taxis of people from Busoga, problem came in today when these very many ferried supporters of his refused to leave Entebbe yet Besigye was coming at 5pm. Pressure started drawing no matter how much the police force begged those NRM supporters to leave Entebbe for security reasons, few went but upto now others still remained. As usual Entebbe people are kind principled and mind of their business. Besigye arrives at 5pm it was a lesson for our Busoga brothers and sisters who were ferried to attend Museveni’s rally, from nowhere Kizza Besigye receives the whole Entebbe residents amidst the heaviest security, intimidation etc. The rally went on very well there were no fights but NRM learnt a real lesson”

UPF 11.02.2016 Block FDC P2

Later in the evening:

“Police has fired dozens of live bullets against Dr. Kizza Besigye supporters in Kasanje and nobody moved an inch! This is the first act of defiance I have seen. The locals blame a police officer identified as Kiggundu. The crowd has forced the OC to call his men to order after about 20 rounds were fired bit crowd simply chanted ‘tetuvawano tetuvawano mumala budde’ DEFIANCE”

Entebbe 11.02.2016 FDC Campaign Rally

Yet another day the Forum for Democratic Change had a great day on the campaign trail as the road to 18th February seems like shot snap of great rallies in every district and many sub-counties in the country, as it has been from Northern, Eastern, Western and now in the Central Region. Peace.
