The charges against Bobi Wine is like clockwork!

Work is a necessity for man. Man invented the alarm clock”Pablo Picasso

We now after a few days knows the verdict of the house-arrest and the charges put on Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. Whose been in house-arrest since 22nd April 2019 or Easter Monday. As he had scheduled a Press Conference on his property, as the state had barred and blocked him from holding his Kyarenga Extra Concert there later that day.

However, the Police Force violently took him from his Toyota Land Cruiser and also used water-canons, and tear-gas to get people away from the convoy of the politician/musicians. That is not seen as illegal or as a criminal affair. As they are the law-enforcement is allowed to use brute force and take people away. Even when there is no warrant or legal justification to do so.

Now, days after, the Police Force have sent a letter to Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga, saying the reasons for his arrest. They claim that the MP was inciting violence and unlawful gathering. This is common crimes in Uganda, they are soon more common than pickpocketing and theft. Since, the Police Force issues these alleged crimes as often, that its as common as the sky-rocketing rate between the shilling and the US Dollar.

It is hard to see the MP to incite violence, as he was driving his car to his property. If it is illegal to gather on his own property too. Than, surely we should be worried about the gatherings in the compound in Wakiso District too. Surely, Barbie should be afraid of even meeting with her husband now. Since, just to meet and greet him could be seen as a criminal offence. Maybe even drive home to Magere could be seen as unlawful gathering. Who knows? Because, if your someone who challenge the throne, they will pin whatever on you.

This is just another method of the NRM and IGP Okoth-Ochola to misuse power. In the means of silencing a big critic. This time being Bobi Wine, next time, who knows, but could be anyone. Because, if your someone who goes against the President and his click. Expect the vile force of the Police Force to pin your some charges and have to answer for it. Even if it doesn’t stick in court or have the evidence. That is what they do. Peace.

State Minister Obiga says Bobi Wine “committed some crimes” but we know he offended the Don!

The Police is still at Hon Kyagulanyi’s home who will make a statement at the police tomorrow over a range of charges, and it is improper to make a statement” (…) “Police says Hon Kyagulanyi has committed some crimes, so he has been summoned to make a statement at the CID either today or tomorrow. Because the Police are preferring charges against him, i am unable to make a statement beyond this” – Internal Affairs, State Minister Obiga Mario Kania explaining the House Arrest today in Parliament on the 24th April 2019

There are sometimes things get stupid before they get better. At this moment, we again see how the orders high above makes everyone around seem dumb. Today, the State Minister of Internal Affairs Obiga Mario Kania shown utter ignorance and also showing how little rule of law means to him. As he cannot explain to fellow lawmakers, what supposed laws Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine have broken and what warrants the house-arrest of the MP.

This we already knew yesterday, when the MP was house-arrested, that the Police Force nor the National Resistance Movement (NRM) can directly have evidence of a crime. That is why they still doesn’t have the Arua Stone or evidence on the treason charge put on him from August 2018. However, they are now making up a new case because of he Easter Monday 2019. They will try to make something up, as they we’re the one violently arresting him and tear-gassing the public. While the criminal, is the one who just tried to show-up on his own property. Which is by all means, very impressive even for the Uganda Police Force.

This shows more of the impunity, the lack of the rule of law and the misuse of power. At this very moment, Bobi Wine is the victim of this. His just the latest target of Police Force and the NRM. That is why they are again trying to find fault and make him a criminal. So, that the politician cannot do his work or his profession. That is why they are blocking his concerts and also his ordinary life. This is the cost of standing up against President Museveni and his rule.

President Museveni doesn’t care, as long as his enemies pays or gets intimidated by him. This is done with the Public Order Management Act, the Penal Code or any else breach they can pin on somebody. This time its Bobi Wine. Even if the State Minister Obiga cannot answer the reason for his house-arrest.

It could be anything, but most likely, he has offended the DON and killed his MOJO. He has hit the pride and the arrogant cow-herders buttocks. So, that he cannot stomach it and has to use the law-enforcement against him. Peace.

Bobi Wine is now under House Arrest!

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine after the violent arrest yesterday, as his Easter Monday Concert was blocked by the authorities, today, the Police Force and the authorities itself have sealed of his home in Magere. His wife Barbie and the kids was stopped at the roadblock nearly not allowed to go out of the home to school.

Clearly, the message of protest against the impunity and lack of freedom is issuing fear within the National Resistance Movement. As they have to go to extreme measures and house arrest Bobi Wine. Without a court order or without any proof of crimes. They are doing a pre-emptive measure, which means they will say his “inciting violence” or destroying “public order” without any proof of it. That is just how they operate.

Bobi Wine isn’t the first nor the last person to get this treatment, as more opposition figures and dissidents will get this treatment from the Police Force. This is the way they are, as the orders from High Above, states this.

Bobi Wine’s own Statement on today:

“Police and the military have been deployed at my residence since yesterday, after the violent arrest. My home is under siege. They have surrounded my fence and installed barricades on all roads leading to my home. It is today when I attempted to move out of my home that the police told me that I am under house arrest. I was headed to Police headquarters in Naguru to deliver a notification about our planned peaceful demonstrations against police brutality, injustice and misuse of authority. When they blocked me, I asked my lawyers to deliver the letter, but they too have been blocked and stopped from accessing the police headquarters. A public office! They were ordered to leave the gate to the police headquarters immediately or face arrest! Since they have refused to receive our notification as commanded by the law, WE SHALL GO AHEAD AND DEMONSTRATE PEACEFULLY AS GUARANTEED BY THE CONSTITUTION. This is our country!” (Bobi Wine, 23.04.2019).

When a Member of Parliament is under house arrest for doing his civic duty. You know something is wrong with the justice system and with the state of affairs. When a MP and a citizen can loose all his rights. He is just one out of plenty, who if they use their voices, it will be shut-down. Just like in the past, it will happen in the present time too.

Bobi Wine is getting the Besigye treatment, the House Arrest without a Court Order or a Warrant. Just a mere reflection if the injustice happening in the Republic. Peace.

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine: Press Statement (22.04.2019)

Greetings, countrymen and countrywomen.

Yesterday, the 21st day of April, 2019 the Uganda Police Force once again blocked our music concert which had been scheduled to take place today at One Love Beach Busabala. Their letter also indicated that all our other planned shows across the country stand cancelled. For clarity, we have been planning to hold mega music concerts in the districts of Lira, Gulu and Kitgum and police had been duly notified. This brings the total number of our shows which have been blocked by the Police to 124!

Every citizen of Uganda knows what this is about. President Museveni is simply not happy with what I sing. He would simply want me to sing praises for him, and since I have refused, he won’t let me perform anywhere in Uganda. Being the coward he is, his government has even proposed ridiculous regulations that would ensure that I don’t perform outside Uganda without clearance from the government. He simply can’t stand our message being aired out anywhere.

Let me remind the nation that we have so far taken the following steps from the time these violations started in October, 2017. We filed a case in the High Court in 2017. To date, judgement has not been delivered. We petitioned the Uganda Human Rights Commission. We are yet to get a hearing. We petitioned the Parliament. Parliament passed a resolution against the blocking of our concerts and ordered the police and other security agencies to stop this unconstitutional conduct. They totally ignored Parliament’s resolution. We held meetings with the police leadership asking them what law we had violated. All they said was that they were acting on orders from above!

Let me also remind us all that it is not only our music shows that have been illegally blocked- I have on several occasions been barred from moving freely in this country. Several events that planned to host me have been cancelled, including a graduation event in Kasese. A few months ago, police attempted to block me from attending my sister’s wedding in Gomba district- I only eluded them and got to the event. In the recent past, police teargassed a church congregation that I attended in Kayunga. I have been put under 24 hour surveillance as if I am a criminal. People Power activities across the country have been blocked with impunity. Several of our songs have been banned on radio and television Stations. All these illegalities have been orchestrated by a few people in the police leadership, acting on the orders of President Museveni.

While these illegalities have been meted out on me, my family and the People Power movement, our other comrades in the struggle have not been spared. The police has violated clear constitutional provisions and blocked FDC activities across the country. Radio stations have been switched off for hosting comrade Dr. Kizza Besigye. Several events organised by the Democratic Party have been blocked without explanation. Colleague Members of Parliament have been arrested for protesting against evictions of our people in Apaa. Traders in Kampala have been brutalized for trying to peacefully protest against several injustices. Comrades such as Hon. Francis Zaake have in the recent past been violently arrested by the police. Other comrades such as Dr. Stella Nyanzi are being illegally detained. Many political activists are being illegally detained in ‘safe houses’ and being subjected to all manner of torture. Even our Muslim brothers and sisters have been blocked from holding public prayers in protest against the injustices on the muslim community. Journalists have been brutalized by the police and the military for doing their work.

The citizens have been watching all these injustices, and have been asking us- WHAT NEXT?

As I have labored to explain, we have made resort to all lawful avenues to have these illegalities struck down without success.

We have now decided to resort to another lawful avenue to protest against injustice by the leadership of the Uganda Police Force. We are invoking Article 29(1)(d) of the Constitution of Uganda which guarantees every citizen the right to assemble and demonstrate peacefully unarmed, and to petition. We shall hold peaceful demonstrations against the brutality, injustice and misuse of authority by the leadership of the police.

We call upon all those who have been victims of police brutality, injustice and misuse of authority, as well as other well meaning Ugandans to demonstrate peacefully against these illegalities.
We have written to the Police informing them of our intention to protest against the Police, as required by law. On Tuesday, 23rd April, 2019 I will use public transport and if necessary walk to the Police Headquarters in Naguru to deliver the letter notifying them of our intentions. All other Ugandans who wish to protest are also encouraged to write to the police and walk or drive there to deliver the letters of notification. We cannot continue to live as slaves in our own country!

Your brother and comrade,

Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert- Bobi Wine

Bobi Wine arrested on the way to hold a Presser at One Love Beach, Busabala!

As we knew yesterday, that the concert scheduled today on the One Love Beach at Busabala, or the Kyarenga Extra Concert was blocked. Early this morning the Police Force had put up road-blocks and massive amount of police officers at the venue. They didn’t have the manpower for the concert to be held, but enough to close-off the venue. Shows the priority of the state.

In that manner, as they have blocked the up-coming Kyarenga Concerts as well, as the one tonight. The man behind it, Roberty Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the MP and singer was trying to access his property and hold a press conference there. However, the authorities are in acceptance mode.

The road-block was put in place as the convoy of Bobi Wine was passing to his property. However, the Police Force broke a window on his car, forcefully arrested him and even threw tear-gas at him. The Police did the same at the public and the crowds around the car. They used water-canons on the public, as well as tear-gas, also using live-bullets.

Bobi Wine wasn’t the only arrested today, also his promoters Andrew Mukasa and Abbey Musinguzi were taken in custody. At this point of time, we don’t know where they are detained. The same can be said about Francis Zaake MP. Whose also was arrested as he was supposed to go there too. Nubian Li is the only one who walked away without being arrested.

We know after all the fuzz, the Police have driven Bobi Wine directly to his home in Magere. So, that he cannot address the public or be at his other property. Because, that is decided from high above.

Surely, this was well planned manoeuvrer to stop it from ever happening. As they were there from early on today and had all equipment, manpower and the means to stop it. They knew that Bobi Wine and friends could try to access his own land. Still, they wouldn’t let him. Even as they had already blocked the event from happening through letters.

Therefore, the actions was in ordinary fashion of the Police Force. With violence and arrests. This is just what they do. Pre-emptive strikes and attacks on the public. That is just what they do. The Police Force use all means to silence the opposition. They have done it again and surely can report giddy to Okello House. That they have saluted Bosco with a mission accomplished. Peace.

Uganda Police Force: Statement on Kyarenga Extra Concert (21.04.2019)

Bobi Wine’s Kyarenga Extra Easter Monday Concert: Blocked!

Bobi Wine is an artiste. This [politics] isn’t singing. If you are an artiste, go to Suzanna and Nakulabye” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 15th March 2019

Again and again, the ones who oppose the Presidency and his reign are blocked from their functions. After the Athens Promotions have been informed by the authorities on the 19th April 2019, two days ahead of the scheduled Kyarenga Extra Concert on the 22nd April at One Love Beach, Busalaba. If you ever thought the authorities would relent and make it possible for Bobi Wine aka Robert Kyagulanyi to keep his career. Your wrong. This is continuing to stop him performing. So, in the end, he just have to become a full-time politician and fight with legislation.

This has been a persisting problem, which have occurred again and again. This is what the Police Force does, as they have rules and regulations that is used to stop the Opposition from gathering. While the President can stop at a round-about without any pre-warning and make a rally. While his opposition will be forced with tear-gas and arrests. If not, they are not allowed to entertain the idea of meeting up. That is why they are blocking the Kyarenga Extra at his own property. An property, they have previously allowed it and there was no insecurity or violence there.

It doesn’t matter how much the Athens Promotions, the Firebase Entertainment and the rest of the team around Bobi Wine are applying. They will fall short, because they are on the wrong side of the aisle.

This is the misuse of the Public Order Management Act (POMA) as they can portray it whichever way they want. But the reality is that they are stifling the opposition and their possible ways of earning a living. For a President just last month, saying that Bobi Wine should stick to singing. Kinda hard to that, if your concerts are most likely blocked or suspended? If they are not allowed to happen or the authorities blocking the venues?

Therefore, the President should be warned that the political musician, might turn into a full-time politician and become even more savvy in that field. As your blocking his revenue stream. He will hit harder at you, the cattle-rancher turned self-styled life-President. Maybe, he should go there and hang-out with his favourite cows? Instead of silencing the Republic where his been reigning over for 33 years?

Well, this is just one of plenty of problems in the Republic. Just the proof of how vindictive and aggressive the Police Force and authorities are against their dissidents. That they are not even accepting a concert on your own land. This is the sort of thing that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) have normalized. They are continuing to do it and surely thinks its cool. While the reality will sooner or later hit them. When they have blocked enough political gatherings, enough political actors and also their inner-party work. When the people think its enough…

When that time comes, I don’t know, but this sort of actions. Will cause an effect, as people can react to the continues attack on their freedom and liberty to even participate or have leaders who can be leaders for them. They are awaiting the blessing of the Republic to build their political parties and engage the public. Because, if they start to hold rallies, radio-interviews, concerts, inner-party meetings or even party conferences. They can all be shut-down, either will on-air or before it even happening. This is just what the Police Force is up-to.

Therefore, Bobi Wine isn’t an exemption, but yet another Prime-Example of how the NRM and their Police Force is operating. Peace.

Letter from the Police:

Opinion: If you can silence Museveni’s Guns, then you have a shot for succession!

There is a very obvious reason, why President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is going on a Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) Tour of late. That is to show his force, his power and his army. As long as the President has his army, has his security organizations like ISO, CMI, Flying Squad and the Special Force Command. Now even the LDUs and possible Crime Preventers. The President has so many outfits fighting his battles and defending him. He don’t have to care about the ballot or the will of the people. He has soldiers, spies and police officers fighting his battles anyway.

So, for the ones believing in the ballot, believing that the man of 1986 coup d’etat and never leaving the office. Will leave peaceful, because he suddenly overnight lost to Bobi Wine or Kizza Besigye. Better be smoking or drinking hard, it must be liquid courage, because it is not bloody brilliant. More mere ignorance of who they are fighting.

The President uses all means to stay in power. The ones he cannot compromise or pay-off, he challenge and intimidate, the ones he cannot sensitize and the ones he cannot convert. He kills off and silence. The ones that knows to much and been in to close relations will be kept on payroll, even if they got nothing in government to do. The same with former comrades who needs a pay-check even if their time is over. That is just the way it is.

The President will do whatever to stay in power. Making insults against him criminal, making staging rallies in the same area as him as crime. Making posters on top his a crime. Everything at opposes him is a felony and you will pay for doing so. It is just a matter of time, before you get apprehended and taken care off.

Therefore, the ones believing that the President are playing democracy and would initiate a transition. Is believing in their own juices and the own air their breathing. Because, that is far from reality.

The only way to get rid of Museveni is either by natural death. May, the almighty answer the prayers of plenty who has been suffering during his three decades and leave them be. Alas, it is up to God to know when he is soul is leaving his body. The only other way, except natural death is to do something as special as silencing his GUNS.

That is why he is so militarized. This is the only thing he got, that he does well. The only thing that he can command and actually follows every single word. The President control of the army, the security organizations and the intelligence operations. Are the reason for his steady control of the Republic. So, if someone takes that away from him. Then there is hope. Either a Popular Uprising, at levels where the whole state stagnates and stops functioning. Because, the public is demonstrating so heavy, barricading roads and closing the civil service. That the President and his administration have to step down.

The other way, which is in similar fashion. Is to get the Police, Army and other Security Outfits to do a mutiny, to lay down the weapons or decide to not follow his orders. That they are standing down. They are rebelling and becoming mutineers. That they are standing up for the public and helping to topple and control the government, by using the manners and techniques learned while being part of army, police and other security outfits.

Therefore, the need to SILENCE the GUNS. By any means. That is where the power of Museveni are and has been. Ever since he went to the Bush. His safe-guard, his partner and friend in crime and passion. Has been the gun, the rifle, the ammunition and the guerrilla warfare. That is what has been his staple, been his meal-ticket and his way of getting the Republic under his spell. Using enough of the weapons to silence them all. Fear and respect him, because he got the weapons and if you don’t follow him. You will be dealt with.

So, for you who believes in the ballot, trust me the bullet is his friend. He only ushered in the ballot, to get funding and loans, legitimacy and get great alliances with foreign forces, which could strengthen his grip. Something it has with training of the military, the ones assigned in foreign missions and even imports of army equipment. All, because of the steady need for ballots. Even, if all along, the only measure needed and his loyal weapon.

The GUNS would be there to save the day. The GUNS would there to save tomorrow and beyond. Peace.

Opinion: Bobi Wine throws a grenade into the 2021 elections!

For a leader to say a vote can never oust Museveni without offering a solution is disappointing. We believe in democracy and it should not depend on us but on people. What politicians can not solve, the people of Uganda can solve, they should continue to register as voters and be many” (…) “Don’t talk about democracy and stand four times and on the fifth time you say it doesn’t work, we believe it works” (…) “We have spent two years organising our people and we think now there’s strong competence to regain the control of the country. Apart from the ordinary people being organised, we need better organisation as political leaders. We need to be synchronised, coordinated to achieve what’s needed to be achieved, focused on where the problem lies…There has been some uncoordinated movements sometimes. This year is to make sure this is kept in the past and we move as a purposeful pro democratic force” – Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine on 4th April 2019 on the Launch of the Democratic Party Block or the Memorandum of Understanding between Democratic Party and Peoples Development Party and Social Democratic Party.

There are today signs, that Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine are imagine himself in the likes of DP’s Norbert Mao, PDP Abed Bwanika, SDP Michael Mabike, also with the ANT’s leader Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu and also JEEMA’s Asuman Basalirwa. It shows the friends of the rising star on the political spectrum. However, while he is speaking with peace, he is at the same time throwing grenades into the field of Opposition. Targeting directly FDC’s Dr. Kizza Besigye. That is shown today at Hotel Africana.

What Bobi Wine is showing today?

Partly, a bit of political naivety, a bit of ignorance and secondly, also a bit self-righteousness. Which all I will explain. Because, it is fine and dandy, that all these parties want to show an agreement to work together. That is fine for them. They can collectively achieve, what they think they will achieve. As the PDP, SDP, JEEMA and DP haven’t been boasting big of late. That JEEMA got an MP, their own Party President is good, but not a giant victory. Neither is the MPs won by the DP itself. PDP is one-man band cannot be seen as viable organization. Last, ANT of Muntu is just established and registered after a prolonged consultation period and mix of underlying needs, which haven’t been publicly specified.

Alas, if they think DP Block will be powerful and able to topple Museveni. They should look into the Inter-Party Cooperation (IPC) of 2011 and The Democratic Alliance of 2015. Alas, these sort of projects should be gone, because they are not strengthening the Opposition, but weakening it instead. However, I wish them good luck on their endeavours. Surely, Bobi Wine should take pictures of more books to learn from the past. This is the little notice on his political naivety.

On ignorance is on his attack of Besigye. As does he think Kizza Besigye would have run if his party didn’t send delegates to pick him? Does the politician himself, think Besigye would been on the ballot this many times if there was no internal political discourse within the FDC and established his candidacy? Isn’t that, why he believes in Democracy, because the FDC party has elected him to be their Presidential Flag-bearer?

However, in this regard, the man who has not aligned with any party before or been built an organization with a protocol. Shouldn’t he study that first, too? Shouldn’t Bobi Wine understand, why Norbert Mao can run again on his third stint? He couldn’t run last time, but would have if they allowed him. Is that Democratic, then? Secondly is democratic that Bwanika has run for President since 2006 on his own ticket? Again and again, believing that his church and Party would blow the Republic away. But it never did.

So, Bobi Wine should look around his own and what they been doing before throwing grenades at the FDC and Besigye. Surely, the DP Block will be no more than fling. A tiny fire with hope like the TDA for Amama Mbabazi. Because, nothing will topple Museveni at this point. As long as there is elections with Museveni on the ballot. There will be no peaceful transition. The last time he lost, he went to the bush and since taking power. There been no cheap-shot of a peaceful transition happening in the Republic.

Therefore, I don’t believe Bobi Wine, any Opposition Coalition or Joint Candidates can beat Museveni and the National Resistance Movement (NRM). For the simple reason, the President lingers and secures his allies places. While, he will intimidate, rig and do whatever it take to own the Crown. There is no democracy in that sense. He let the Opposition and the others win some bread-crumbs to look like it. But, still, there is like war-zones and planned interference in the By-Elections, that makes them more violent and sinister, than it needs to be.

Nevertheless, the hope for a better future, the hope for a transition is good and needed. But it is a false-flag right now. That a man who at the same moment claiming that he wants UNITY is still throwing grenades at the biggest Opposition Party. That shows that the UNITY isn’t that UNITED. It is just partly united and not in all sense. This is why the leader and the one whose been standing in the battle. Getting thrown under the bus. Because, why not right?

If it had been a democracy, been a righteous and fair elections. Than, the elections of 2015, 2011, 2006, 2001 and 1996 would have looked differently. Even by this time, the President wouldn’t have been the same over that time. It would have shifted. Also, the FDC has changed their Party President. Something, certain other parties that Bobi Wine is aligned to hasn’t done since its inception. The DP have changed, but the rest are Parties of One-Men Bands who are existing because of them and might be gone, when they have left the building too.

So, it is self-righteous of Bobi Wine, that is what is today. Instead of taking the high-road and such. He sounds more like Mao rip-off and its weak tea. Bobi Wine should know better, but apparently he don’t. I don’t know what got into him, but surely his showing his blazing glory. That his message and memo to the rest.

That he has utter faith in the Electoral Commission, that the appointed men of Museveni, the Security Apparatus and everyone else. Will obey the codes of law and pass over to the DP Block, because of their UNITY will be able to Topple Museveni. Sorry brother, but you got to be kidding me.

That is even worse than Kiggundu math. Get back to the drawing board and re-invent magic. Because, that doesn’t add up. Maybe, Bobi Wine has some love-potion or something to beat the Elections his way. Since, it doesn’t seem so to me. Peace.

Opinion: Gen. Otafiire is oblivious to how the NRA/NRM always been supported by foreigners since its inception!

Our enemies are those working for the colonialists. You have a quarrel with Museveni and run to United States to report; you get a misunderstanding with Mr Museveni you go to United Kingdom to report him. Do those people govern us? Are you a president for Americans or British, have you ever seen Mr Museveni going to UK to ask for forgiveness?” (…) “If you want to go to report Museveni to Europeans, when you go there, please keep there. You are coming to seek votes then after putting you into power, you use Americans and the British to lead us. No, we got fed up with that. That’s why we are praying that we can build a united Africa so that Africans can lead themselves” – Kahinda Otafiire on 1st April 2019 (FELIX AINEBYOONA & ALFRED TUMUSHABE – ‘Bobi Wine trying to bring back colonialists – Gen Otafiire 01.04.2019).

There is hypocrisy out going in the mean streets of the world. Especially among the ones in power, who think they can blindside people and make them oblivious to certain fact. One of the heads of this practice is General. Kahinda Otafiire, the Minister for Justice in the Republic of Uganda, the former National Resistance Army (NRA) official and later emerging politician in the National Resistance Movement (NRM).

When he says his enemies, it is the voice of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who has an American Lawyer and such. However, the NRA/NRM wouldn’t exist to this date, if they didn’t get help. The almighty President and his people, wouldn’t have participated in the rigged election of 1980, if it wasn’t for the grand support of Tanzania and Julius Nyerere. That chapter might been forgotten by the Bush Warriors.

In addition, that the NRA got in secret deliveries of weapons and ammunition from Col. Muammar Gadhafi back in the day, that is direct Libyan intervention in the internal conflict of the Republic. This was during the 1980s bush-war, while Museveni and NRA was claiming to be self-sufficient. However, that was never the case.

Also, after taking power, if there was IMF/World Bank, no support from President Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. The President wouldn’t have gotten favourable agreements, loans and development funds to fund to rebuild the battle-torn Republic. The NRM will not claim that today, because that was their steady progress. Alas, the Western powers, bilateral agreements and direct donor aid funded lots of government portfolio back-in-the-day. So, Otafiire, better be silent.

This is just the start and not the whole picture even, as of today, the NRM couldn’t have managed doing infrastructure projects in major parts of the republic. If it wasn’t for loans from China or donations from Japan. They are still viable and the ones paying for the building of these. That is just the way it is. In addition, the major investment done by the United States in support of the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF), which wouldn’t been so modern and so well-trained. If it wasn’t for funding, training and direct support. This is well known, as well, as the agreements done with North Korea and others, who are outsiders, but when the NRM does it. It is apparently, patriotic and justified, but when the opposition does it. It is evil.

Therefore, when the NRM and their apologists uses colonists and foreign intervention as support of opposition. It is cool, as long as it happens to happen to them, but it’s a big, big problem, when the opposition does it. Because, the NRM is “Buy Uganda Build Uganda” , they are “Buy Chinese, Build Uganda”, but don’t tell Otafiire that. He will get shocked. Peace.
