The noble people of Sudan,
Our triumphant revolution is reconstructing across Sudan; in cities, villages and, the countryside, renewing the covenant with our beloved brothers and sisters who despite their deaths live with us forever. The Sudan we all want and for which they have sacrificed their lives shall become a reality, a respectable sovereign nation.

There been yet another day of Presidential Rallies. There been more movement from all candidates. NRM continues… Go-Forward and Amama Mbabazi has had a hectic day. The FDC team and Dr. Kizza Besigye have been in Busoga… the other candidates were there also on the trail… Let’s continue!
He continued to travel in the Northern Uganda on his trail. And the UPC candidates continue to support NRM like they are the same party. Akena must sit somewhere proud. Otunnu must be sad somewhere else… Milton Obote be pissed at his son somewhere in his eternal rest. Well, let’s go back to the trail!
YKM said this today:
“We are in alliance with the UPC” said today by Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Also saying today: “Whoever who ate that money, going to vomit” (…)”Some problems in the Health Ministry – Corruption, Stealing drugs”.
Before his campaign rally in Hoima the police has thrown out tear-gas to scatter the public who was supposed to go the venue where Amama Mbabazi.
“Hoima District, 16th November, 2015:
On our agenda for 2016-2021 shall be revisiting land compensation for those who were not compensated for loss of land during the oil exploration exercise. This will be resolved. Additionally we intend to empower local governments to manage their own budgets for infrastructure development especially municipal roads”.
Sunday 22nd November 2015 is the new date set for the release of the Go-Forward and TDA joint manifesto release.
The race has been halted by the issue that the professor doesn’t have the money for his campaign. There it has been postponed. He has been steady tweeting all day!
The Joseph Mabirizi and Maureen Faith Kyala were scheduled to have rallies in Butaleja and Kibuuku District today.
Abed Bwainka had today campaign rallies in Iganga, Kamuli and Namayingo.
He has been talked in Irudu in Buyende district. Later he had rallies in Bukungu.
In Kamuli this is what Dr. Kizza Besigye said:
“We shall improve agriculture. We shall invest in research, promote irrigation, establish a farmer’s bank, insure gardens. We shall also fix prices so that any farmer knows that u can’t sell below that price. We shall have silos”.
Dr. Kizza Besigye after the rallies today:
“We want to thank the people of Buyende and Kamuli for the warm welcome to Dr. Kizza-Besigye Wrn. He discussed with them how the Fdc govt will solve the problem of poverty thru putting in place people centered programs and projects. We implore you to go door to door and spread the message of Liberation. Kigwa Leero”.
“I can confirm that we are in talks whereby the core UPC minimum agenda that addresses key issues like health, education and agriculture will guide all engagements over the next 5 years. As UPC we firmly believe in the need for a peaceful transition and recognise that this could only be the last term for President Museveni and therefore any meaningful transition cannot exclude him and NRM from this transition. UPC from its founding as political Party, sought the preservation of national unity and integration which remains a key guiding principle” (…)”As the UPC President, I am committed to abide by the National Council decision to build the party from the grassroots in preparation for the 2021 elections. I am similarly urging all UPC members to actively support and campaign for UPC candidates contesting for elective positions from LC I to Parliament in the 2016 elections”.
Written by UPC President Jimmy Akena.
Hon. Frank Tumwebaze statement on the KCCA ACT:
“Broadly why are we amending the kcca act law? In 2005, Article 5 of the Constitution was amended to reflect the special status of Kampala as the Capital City of Uganda, which means that Kampala ceased to be a district under the Local Government system, and that the Capital City was therefore to be administered by the Central Government. That provision is in the constitution and its supreme. Any other law made under the same constitutional provision must not contradict it or attempt to undermine the spirit of the constitution framers in as far the administration of Kampala is concerned” (…)”The objective of the aforesaid constitutional amendment was to introduce reforms to the governance of the Capital City in a bid to address the numerous issues that Kampala faced at that time, for example poor transport infrastructure, traffic congestion, uncontrolled developments, flooding, unregulated transport industry, illegal street trading, corruption, poor service delivery etc…” (…)”In order to give effect to the new status of Kampala under Article 5 of the Constitution, Parliament enacted the Kampala Capital City Act, 2010 which came into force on the 1st of March 2011. The provisions of the Kampala Capital City Act 2010 prescribe, among others, the administration of Kampala by the Central Government, the establishment of the Kampala Capital City Authority (hereinafter referred to as the KCCA) as the governing body of the city, the composition of the Authority, election, removal and powers of the Lord Mayor, Deputy Lord Mayor and members of the Authority” (Tumwebaze, 16.11.2015 – Press Statement).
Side Note – NRM Primaries:
“Police arrest 20 youth with sticks in 2 vehicles moving towards Rubanda, Kabale. This happens as the NRM Primaries is underway” (CroozeFM News).
Conservative Party is set to expel their leaders Ken Lukyamuzi.
Side-Note 3 – TIC Statement on the Police:
TIC CONDEMNS ATTACK ON DELTA TV JOURNALIST
The Independent Coalition, TIC, condemns in the strongest terms the police shooting of a Delta TV journalist on duty. Thus occurred during another blatant attempt to stop the Lord Mayor from leaving his home to exercise his democratic rights, who was also illegally arrested. TIC calls upon the Uganda Police Force to remember that they are expected to be non – partisan.
I think this was enough for today, a bit better then yesterday on the trail. Peace!
