“Meeting a section of coordinators and members for the opposition National Unity Platform (NUP) at State House Entebbe. I appreciate their views on the different failures of the NRM, and my assurance is that we shall work together to address such” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 06.05.2021).
On the 6th May 2021 there was suddenly a tweet and a dropped piece of information from the President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Musveni. That he held a meeting at the State House with supposed National Unity Platform Coordinators from the recently held elections in January 2021.
This is the Commander-in-Chief, the President and the Chairman of the ruling party, National Resistance Movement (NRM). He has targeted, gone after and ordered his Security Organizations to hunt after the NUP. His government has arrested, detained, kidnapped, kept incommunicado and even killed NUP activists, leaders and coordinators. The state hasn’t been favourable or fair to the NUP. That’s why I don’t believe …. that there was any real NUP Coordinators at the State House.
The NRM Chairman and Self-Styled President for Life isn’t having dialogue with the NUP. Neither did he have the ability to prove anyone of the people in the picture even was part of opposition party. The same party that has been targeted and aimed at all true campaign season.
The President of a ruling regime, which still have the NUP Presidential Campaign Team behind bars, which it has been since the end of December 2020. That’s why the belief of a meeting like this unlikely. It isn’t like the NUP have been in communication or tried to talk with the NRM. They have sent letters to the other opposition parties, but not the ruling regime.
Museveni wants to look like a winner and be praised ahead of the 12th May 2021 swearing in at Kololo Airfield. Where he wants all the dignitaries and the glory of the rigged election ahead of his 9th term in office. The man needs legitimacy and look sincere, though we all know the grift and the reasons for this.
He has no trouble living on a lie. The regime is pushing it. That’s why we know the drill and we have been here before. The NUP isn’t collaborating with the NRM. That is just the truth. The President and State House isn’t straightforward with this. That’s why we know this was a publicity stunt and PR move, but not the reality. If it was… he would have shown their faces and smiled with them. Like the moves with Ashburg Katto, Jennifer Full Figure and everyone else he has “taken” from the NUP in the past.
Now, he just held a meeting, but not showing any of them off. It is just filled with ghosts, unaccounted people and internally displaced individuals who happens to be there. I’m sure more coordinators are behind bars, on bail or been sought after during the days of polls in January 2021. The state have gone after these and they have even killed them too. So, I doubt the party who has been hunted down like the NUP would suddenly let their people greet the man behind the scenes doing these sinister things to them.
Like will you meet the killer and the one punishing your kin? His been doing so without any justification or reason. Calling the NUP coordinators, activists and members as thugs, hoodlums and whatnot. He has talked about crushing them… so why would they even talk to this man? Who only has selfish interests and not care for the Republic?
Museveni can live on the lie. The lies… which is embedded in his modus operandi … and keeps him in office. These lies are what makes him powerful. Still, it is lies and deceit, which isn’t true. That is why he needs to stuff like this to make legit. Though we all know his just trying to take people for fools. People are not that stupid, even if his handlers believes they are. Peace.
