Opinion: I expect that the NUP have to walk on water…

There would no other party, no other opposition party, which would go through so much pain and suffering. Than the party of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. That was to be anticipated ahead of the 2021 General Elections. All the soldiers are out, all the security organizations and the intelligence are watching.

The National Unity Platform (NUP), the former dead-in-the-water party that was resurrected by the People Power Movement (PPM), as they knew damn well that the Electoral Commission wouldn’t allow or accept a PPM registration. That is why the PPM together with its team took over the NUP and the body work. Re-issued a delegation conference last year and settled the score. Got verified by the Electoral Commission and the rest is history.

However, now the former Party President and such are retaliating, because of he relevance and because the state is going after them. The former NUP leadership is now haunted, because they sold and delegated the party to the People Power Movement. They are now in trouble and pushing to pursuit the new leadership of the party too. That’s what is happening.

Am I shocked? No, was this to be anticipated? Yes. Since, at gun-point, as being frightened and ambushed to change. Suddenly, the moves of last year isn’t that golden. The soldiers and police officers are abducting and assaulting the previous leadership. Just like it does to mobilizers of the NUP across the Republic. They are arrested and silenced too. There is no difference there.

Only difference, is that the former leadership is coming with claims and trying to justify to take away the new leadership. Just mere months ahead of the election. Trying to sow doubt and erase the Bobi Wine infused party. The NUP wouldn’t be relevant if it wasn’t for him and the ones around him. The original leadership couldn’t even become LCV Chairmen in their constituency.

That’s why this is forged game by the state. As they were tricked to accept the changes last year and didn’t see the scheme behind their nose. They accepted the changes and was shocked at the new launch. That NUP was revitalized and became a part of People Power.

Moses Nkonge Kibalama was fine with it last year, but now that wind is under his wings. He got to fly and poach the PPM and Bobi Wine for money. Suddenly a change of heart and being besieged by the soldiers around his house. In that way to intimidate and use scare tactics to destroy NUP. That is all it seems.

The NRM and the government wouldn’t use these tactics if it was efficient. They are doing this to weaken and destroy the platform and the political party Bobi Wine has. To do enough damage to hurt the options of the main contender and his allies. They have done this with plenty before him and as long as they are in power. They will do that the next in line too.

There is proof that the paperwork has been made, the registration, the change of location of offices an the delegation conference to elect new leadership of the party. Alas, Kibalama can act a fool now, but he has already dropped it.

This here is a farce and a forged play to hurt and maximize pain on the People Power Movement. They are trying to destroy and use all means to take away what they have. Because, it hurt the pride of the regime. When they were able to go under the radar, re-register the party and get control of it. That wasn’t in the cards and was unanticipated.

They were able to trick it, but now the same ones they were able to bargain with. Are giving way and becoming besieged by the state. That is why they are hurt and they use legal means to return assets. Even if the assets are more valuable now, then when they left it into custody of others.

The NUP wouldn’t mean so much. If Nkonge was still rocking the boat alone. He would alone at sea, but with Bobi Wine. The party has some value and has capacity to reach beyond all expectations. That is why the state attacks it too and uses the former leadership like it does.

Now Bobi Wine have to be holier than thou. He needs to be able to walk on water. Since every move will be tested. If he sinks or swims, that is up to him. While the regime will not let go. They went after the beret, they went after the colour and now they are running after his party. Peace.

National Unity Platform (NUP): Statement on Mr. Moses Nkonge Kibalama (17.09.2020)

Opinion: Bobi Wine retaliated with swagger against Mzee [and I will look into ‘Point 3. We Kill Our Supporters in Order to Blame Government’]

Today, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine dropped an articulated response. A 7 point piece not only defending himself, but addressing the matters of responses to the blogging and retorts made by the President. Which has been directed both at fellow cadre Francis Zaake, but also on hot topics. Which I have addressed on my page.

I will today look on a ridiculous claim by the President, which Bobi Wine addresses with sense. He retorts in a manner more people should do. He is going straight to the heart. Not sure, the President is used to this. He should be though, because with age and his history lessons. The man should know that everyone isn’t eating of his hands anymore. Only his paid-off cronies and token friends are doing so. The rest fears the army and the law enforcement. They don’t want to be violated for being civilians and possible dissidents.

So, I will take the vital pieces of the Point 3 from Bobi Wine’s piece and then discuss it underneath. Something I have done several of times with Mzee and now it’s Bobi Wine’s turn.

There are always low moments in every politician’s career, but it is regrettable that the man who presides over our country has no limits on how low he can descend. I wonder how you sleep soundly at night! I wonder how you can extra-judicially kill our people, and then turn up with a straight face blaming their death on the glorious forces of change” (Bobi Wine, 06.09.2020).

This is really showing no remorse and he shouldn’t either. The way he address it is really unleashing a disgust, as the liberator turned tormentor is using the death of oppositions as a tool and dancing on their graves. The President continues to claim he came with fundamental change, but the pattern of actions from the government isn’t so. The government still kill civilians without consequences and this from a government that was supposed to liberate from similar past governments. This is why the usage of them in the manner the President is disgusting and horrific. Instead of getting justice for their lives, he betrays them even in their deaths. Because that saves his cause, which is to stay in power.

Now General Museveni is telling the nation that we have killed all these people in order to put the blame on his regime of blood and national shame! We are told by scripture that God does not sleep nor slumber. The blood of these innocent brothers and sisters cries from the ground. One day, they will get justice. When your friend Omar el-Bashir was butchering the people of Darfur, (the very same way you butchered our people in Northern Uganda, Kasese, etc), he thought of himself as all powerful and invincible. Today, he must be wondering what went wrong. The arm of justice may take so long, but it eventually catches up with those who commit atrocities and think of themselves as too wise and highly exalted. To draw the parallels for your ease of reference, only in April 2015, Omar el-Bashir had organized a sham election, in which his own version of Byabakama awarded him a sweeping 94.05% of the vote. Today, he is in a cold cage, perhaps wishing he had read the signs. I don’t want to remind you of your other friends Gaddafi, Mubarak, Mugabe, Campoare and the rest. Rest assured, you will end up on the dustbin of history, like all those who came before you. The tragedy is that no dictator ever learns from the fate of the other!” (Bobi Wine, 06.09.2020).

This here is a stern warning, a warning that Bobi Wine will say in vein. A person and a ego like Museveni will not listen to him. People warned that he would be a President for Life before the abolishment of Term Limits. Still, the man promised to retire. This man only listens to himself. Even if the warning is poignant and justified. Bobi Wine speaks the voice of the ones the hurt, killed and detained for the cause. He really does here and also shows what has happen to others who has reigned like Museveni did. Their legacy, their reign and their power, when it ends. All their glory, all their bullets and everything will be lost.

Yes, in the moment of power, in the hour of strength, a man like Bobi Wine isn’t dangerous for a man like Museveni. However, when the pendulum turns. The time is up and someone’s else’s turn. Then Museveni has to pray for mercy for his ills. The actions made and the enemies created. He has to beg them for salvation and mercy from his fate. He put through punishment, atrocities and misuse of power. That is all ills he needs to answer for.

That Museveni doesn’t learn from that. Only shows how the power corrupt. This man knows, he knew the ills of the continent and the problems of Africa. Still, he repeats them, uses them and trust upon the same thing towards the ones he is proud to have overthrown like Mobutu and Habyarimana.

Museveni knows all of this, but still uses this rhetoric against People Power and the National Unity Platform. That is the sort of man Museveni. A man who knows, but ignores this knowledge. Because, it isn’t beneficial and keeps him in power. Also, enrich his family and his associates. Bobi Wine is speaking the truth, but it will only be heard by the choir. It will not be approved by the men and woman who needs it the most. The ones who is eating of the plate of the President. Peace.

Muwanda & Co. Advocates: Electoral Commission fails, refuses & has ignored my formal request to avail nomination (academic) papers of Mr. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the NRM Nomination Candidate in 2016 Presidential Elections (04.09.2020)

Opinion: Why isn’t Museveni’s Credentials released?

Lawyer Muwadda Nkunyingi petitioned the Electoral Commission on the 21st August 2020 to get the credentials and the academic documents of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. This was a retaliation and a mission of showing the true colours of the Presidency. As they have gone after the same for the newcomer Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

Alas, the Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) was very quick with releasing the document of Bobi Wine. The Electoral Commission wasn’t hard to ask either. They both served the lawyer who petitioned for that.

However, we are now on the 2nd September 2020. Long after the petition of Nkunyingi was released. It has gone 13 days and close too two weeks. That is how long it takes to get the proof of the credentials of the President.

This man has run for office steadily since 1996. If someone should have everything in check and order. It is the man who has spent all life in office. The man who has used all time since he worked as an operative in the 1970s to become a rebel and end up as the Head of State.

If someone should have all the ducks in the row. It should be a man like this. He should have copies upon copies. He should have all the books. All the proof in the world. From his birth-certificate, baptism date and when he lost his first tooth. Because, everything he has done should have been dissected by someone already.

President Museveni should have applications forms to the studies in Dar Es Salaam. The man should have the copies of the bachelors degree and have all the other papers. Because, this man has undermined and questioned everyone else. If his sincere about something. It should be his own track-record.

Alas, that cannot be true. As he has changed birthdays, even years of birth. We can wonder if he has changed place of origin too. This man has changed to the times. Museveni must surely get all his good bookies, bureaucrats and clerks to drop knowledge as we speak. Since, they need to make a perfect combination of education and compared to his birthday. If these documents ever get released.

As the President and the National Resistance Movement (NRM) hope the calls for it dies down. He haven’t seen the need to drop this before and why should he be transparent now? That is just for his enemies and his dissidents. Not for himself. His holier than thou. The President is the closest you get to God and therefore, his majesty is someone you shouldn’t dare to question.

Still, one or two lawyers have petitioned it. They have dared to ask. As it should be easy for the Electoral Commission and the UNEB to drop it and reveal the facts. However, the longer it takes. The more we know, they are either hiding something or they revising it. Since, it needs to fit a story, which the President has told of late. He has to alter reality again to be sure of his age.

That is why lies catch up to you, eventually. Especially, if you are living on ones. They will come to life and will spit right in your face. You dared to live on it and now you have to face the consequences. Peace.

Opinion: There will be more like Basajja Mivule…

There are always some fire-starters, some rascals and some noise-makers. The ones that are just there to incite fear and spread nonsense. The likes of Veteran Journalist and Baba TV Presenter Basajja Mivule.

Who are now on the air and on television. All spreading utter rubbish about People Power, Bobi Wine and the National Unity Platform (NUP). Doing his best to discredit, create a storm and make a lot of fuzz over nothing.

The newest non-asset that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) have taken from the PPM/NUP. Just like Jennifer Full Figure and others before him. They are all acting like they are the visionary, the behind scenes fellows, but when it cooks down. They we’re not even important or had a say.

Basajja Mivule are acting a fool. Acting out a scheme, a pay for play act. Which is to make the People Power foolish and the followers stupid. Making them seem like a obvious obnoxious group nobody should be associated with. Alas, he was just there himself a minute ago.

He is not persuaded by money, cars and whatnot from the NRM. No, it is all on the basis of his good heart and his moral capacity. We are supposed to believe a man who discredits others. The moment he left the fold and now throws around claims like a drunk sailor.

Mivule isn’t that bright when he does so. It just makes him look ridiculous. Andrew Mwenda was dumb enough the other day, but the Baba TV Presenter has amped it up. His up so many levels, that he needs a unique upgrade to get there.

This man will not be last to this. The ones scorned, the ones in it for a meal-card. The ones who thought it was a winning bet. The ones who thought they would strike gold joining. They will cry havoc just like this man. That is why Mivule is not the last….

His just the one screaming loudest and from anywhere people giving him a microphone. If he thinking his fooling anyone. His not and secondly, his not that good at it. For someone working in media. He should know this communication and spreading intended message. However, his only spreading rubbish and looking like a lame duck.

Mivule, you should know better, but you don’t. That is why there is no way for you to turn now. You have put yourself in a corner. Accepted the coins and swallowed the bitter pill. That is why your are sending missiles after cats and dogs, thinking modern warfare is the key to salvation. While those salvos are blasting, you are not hitting anything. Except for losing your credit, your mind and your moral compass. Alas, you are a lose canon and you should be at ease.

Not storm into a fight, which you don’t know how will end. You have reaped some perks now. However, your integrity is also sold. So, now … you have to live with it. Peace.

Opinion: Bobi Wine stood tall today

When in doubt… shed light on the matter, add some context and use your microphone to the wind. So, that no one can judge or misunderstand where you come from. Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine did that today. With his press conference and his statement.

Bobi Wine knows symbolism and knows the hardships of his predecessors. That he proved today with where he came from. He didn’t act out of character, but instead showed both humility and savvy political game. That is the sort of game, that even the worst propaganda spinners cannot create a crisis out of. Because there is none.

The People Power leader and Presidential Contender is proving his worth. His party is mobilizing new offices across the Republic. New candidates are being promoted and grassroot actions are done as well. Even as there are rumours of splitting factions and that the newly minted DP MPs are even bailing out. If they do, then they are meal-card politicians who are only in it for a secure seat and not for any pragmatic reasons. Since, it was so easy to jump and so frictionlessly to do it again.

Alas, Bobi Wine still in the midst of that. Shows courage and attitude. That he will not be defeated and not be mocked by a lawyer or anyone else. They are trying to sow doubt and look like a fool. Like a trickster and forgery. So, that he has to drop out, because his credentials are fake and his background is shady.

That is why the truest NRM mobilizers on Social Media just call him the “Weedman”, because of his roots and what he did in his youth. Not like anyone has taken to many drinks, hooked up on random and not searched where they shouldn’t search. A true human being do by default and do mistakes. A true man and woman do act to nature and have regrets too. That is part of life.

Bobi Wine sure has his regrets, has his mistakes and his misfortune. Who hasn’t?

That’s why these attacks and these arranged plots to sow doubt was so clear as day. They are just trying to undermine him. Because, Bobi Wine is the front-runner of the opposition. The one aspiring and the one who has to carry the struggle. His the man who are trying yet again to topple a President with peaceful means.

Bobi Wine should know that everything he has done. All the stories, all his businesses and records. Every single piece of life will be put to the test. Not just his birthday, his education, love-life and whatnot. All will be scanned to public to see. If he was a star and celebrity before. Now, as the main contender against the President for Life.

He must stand tall like today… take all the blame and the hurt. Show humility and be brave. He got too. If he wants this mantle and this title. He needs too do this. There is no other way out. The man has to go through wind and fire. There will be storms, hurricanes and hell-fire. He will be dancing with the devil and trying to rock the crowds with the choirs of saints in heaven. There will be a little of everything.

Bobi Wine will not rest. He cannot rest. There will be nothing of the sorts. All tests, inquires and stories will be ballooned into the stratosphere. There will be no safe journey and “go-to-gate”. No, only a one way ticket to the unknown.

This was a personal test for Bobi Wine and he took it. He carried it and made people proud. Peace.

Opinion: Bobi Wine’s age is a side-show…

That lawyer Male Mabiirizi have dug into the Educational Document of Presidential Contender Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is fine and dandy. However, the aftermath and the issues are coming up because of it is not. 

People are rallying and attacking Bobi Wine. Without thinking that documents might be forged. That the Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) might have given the lawyer fake documents and claimed them as real. As the People Power leader and the Party President of National Unity Platform is getting into a heap of trouble.

What is really touching here… is that the President Museveni himself have different dates on official records. He has a different birth-date on the wedding certificate compared to the birth certificate of his son Muhoozi.

With that in mind, Mabiriizi should also be concerned about the right dates and if His Excellency haven’t forged his documents back in the day. As these documents have been out and is known. However, he is so focused on Bobi Wine. Forgetting all manners and ethics. Throwing stones and without questioning UNEB.

Because, it could be reasons for UNEB to suddenly switch birthdate and year on Bobi Wine. Instead of the date he used for the 2017 Kyadondo East By-Election. Alas, if he had faked that, shouldn’t they have dismissed him then and stopped the possible candidacy back then?

The Electoral Commission who is in-charge have really not done their job and verified his candidacy in 2017. If it was wrong back then. It is just mere three years ago and life shouldn’t change that quickly.

What is striking too. Is that the ones focused on this is missing the mark. They are part of a side-show. Yes, a leader should be ethical and be righteous… nevertheless, there might be more to win by the authorities to claim him as a unethical and liar to them. Have people considered that?

However, a President like Museveni and his handlers should look into the old documents, which claims different ages of him. Though, there is utter silence about this. He is allowed to lie and make propaganda.

Bobi Wine have to be a saint… He has to be a angel. Yes, there is nothing wrong to look into the educational papers of a leader. That is fine and dandy. You should also question the reasons for the state to suddenly drop various of birthdates for a man. To sow doubt and questions his morals. Alas, why don’t you do the same for the President too? Or is that only for Bobi Wine?

If you are angered about Bobi Wine and not questions the reasons for UNEB dropping it like this. Why are you not angered about the possible deception of the President? Who has done this for years and tried to deflect it with a passion.

This is why its a side-show… it is fitting piece of nonsense. To vilify an opposition candidate. While the NRM can go on like nothing happen. Peace.

Mzee’s story has changed on the Arua By-Election

It is very simple, that President Museveni and his team of spin-doctors cannot keep their tongues straight. Today, we have caught the President in a little lie. It cannot be true. In 2018, the President claimed the helicopter was used to save people in the midst of fracas and violence happening after the Arua By-Election in August 2018. However, today he said it was used to capture the “ring-leaders”. That is very simple lie to catch someone in.

When a leader can lie about the usage of helicopter. Why aren’t there more lies in his texts? The window was destroyed with perfection. The whole Arua By-Election was state sponsored violence and torture of civilians. Usage of military soldiers to arrest, abduct, torture and harm opposition leaders. That is what is visible after the post Arua By-Election.

The two stories told by the same man… shows that he uses it for political propaganda fitting to his paradigm at any given day. There is no need for truths, because why change the story? Why is it international interference in a by-election in 2020, but not mentioned in 2018? Why is the people so important in 2018, but invisible in 2020? That’s because the vilification of Bobi Wine is more important in 2020, then it was in 2018.

Just look at these passages from two “informative” texts in the different years.

In 2018:

If the Army had not intervened in Arua, a lot of people would have been killed by this Bobi Wine group. They had gathered stones, knives and there were reports of even guns. Why is it that we have never heard of any incident where the NRM supporters have ever attacked the Opposition supporters? Do you remember how the Bobi Wines were attacking the other MPs in Parliament? Are we to allow them to attack the Wanainchi in similar ways? How about assaulting soldiers or policemen? Do you remember the policeman, Ariong, who died from a stone throw? The security forces should be commended for saving mass deaths in spite of the fact that many of them were not equipped for anti-riot” (…) “His mistake may be to organize and participate in such a violent procession and to import illegal voters. The court will decide according to the evidence. Stop supporting impunity, stop supporting election cheating, stop supporting violence whatever side you are on. As already said above, I am investigating the circumstances of the driver of Bobi Wine who died. Five people were also reported in hospital with gun-wounds. We shall get the circumstances of those cases. In certain circumstances, the Police can use live bullets if they are not equipped with anti-riot equipment and the rioters are on the verge of killing innocent people. That is also possible. The question is: “Why do you riot? Why not use legitimate and peaceful ways of expressing your opinion?” When they stoned my car, what was the reason? If they could be so reckless to attack me, how would they spare the poor Wanainchi? Good enough, my protection force did not respond immediately. They delivered me to the helicopter and went back to rescue the Wanainchi, which they generally did in spite of the circumstances. That is why no local mwanainchi was killed by the hooligans. They did not have enough time to do the damage they intended” (Museveni, 2018).

In 2020:

Hon. Zaake has been tortured but his torturers were not punished. LDUs are punished. First of all, Zaake and a few others are a misguided group being used by some foreigners to destabilize Uganda and for many months now. You remember their actions in Parliament when they jumped on tables, tore away the microphones of Parliament, beat others. Here is the video. In Arua, they stoned my vehicle and attacked NRM supporters who were coming from my rally. They had even driven a road grader (tinga tinga) all the way from Kampala, I think, to use in ramming our vehicles (kutomera). The SFC soldiers in a disciplined way delivered me to the helicopter first and went looking for the ring-leaders – Bobi Wine, Zaake and others. Eventually, they found them in a hotel. These wonderful gentlemen tried to assault our soldiers with punches. The soldiers punched them back until they subdued them. It is very impressive that the soldiers never used guns against Bobi Wine and Zaake in the hotel rooms where they were making a fool of themselves trying to box soldiers as if they were boxing village thieves. One person died outside the hotel in mysterious circumstances. These groups have been in collusion with foreign enemies to infiltrate groups with guns to kill demonstrators and say that Government is the one killing them. We are patiently following up those. You remember the piki piki riding killers that killed Abiriga, Kirumira, Kiggundu etc.? We have defeated them and we shall unearth them” (Museveni, 2020).

The really rich thing about it all. The guns and ammunition found in the hotel of Bobi Wine was later retracted from the state as it was “evidence” pinned on the politician. There been no proof of the supposed weapons from the “assailants” on the President’s car. Neither, have there been any evidence of a gang going against the President. Instead, the proof is on the side of the state and they are no willingly to see into the state sponsored violence. While trying to make the opposition look like bad-guys.

He is using the violence happening in Parliament as defence. While not condemning the assault on MPs inside the Parliament. As he accepts the ideal of having weaponized strangers to benefit his cause in the Parliament, while dismissing the civilian lawmakers defending themselves. That proves what sort of man the President is.

The helicopter story is twisted now. That really shows that this man cannot keep his stories straight. If he did, he would have said the same, but alas he didn’t. This is why the opposition will be implicated and be the ones to blame. Even if the government and the security organization went full gung-ho and didn’t leave anyone behind.

The stoning of the car is always the pin-point and reason. But wasn’t a old person charged with it and not in association with the Arua 33? If so, why blame Zaake or Bobi Wine, when his not associated with them? That doesn’t make sense, but that doesn’t fit the mind of Bosco.

Well, enough rubbish. There should be a proper investigation into what happen. As there was to much hurt, but the Special Force Command will never get charged. These people will only get promoted and eat at the table of Mayors and the elites. Peace.
