“FDC Announces Peaceful Demonstration” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)
Don Museveni and his loyal capos, his underbosses and his Crime Preventers filled the Kololo Independence Grounds, with the quality of voter tourism and the staged affairs. With a 140 cakes with the giant Yellow Bus; as a proof of the ushering in the NRM Bus Company and it’s Steady Progress. “The total cost is 30 million and the who gross cost at Kololo is 2.2 billions” (Breaking News Uganda, 09.04.2016). The 30 million is the value of the 140 cakes, the rest of the NRM celebration at Kololo independence grounds! “Today’s NRM election victory party at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds cost Shs 1.5 billion according to the party’s Secretary General Kasule Lumumba” (The Observer, 09.04.2016). No matter if it 2,2 Billion or the 1,5 billion on a victory celebration. That is just too much and waste of government funds while the State House and Defense Ministry needed grand amounts of shillings for the event.
People from Kampala is not attending the Celebration as the villagers are ferried in, just as the NRM Bus Company is famous for, even when they offer money and food for the attendance at the Celebration of the Election Victory. For Boda-Boda and Taxis they are offering free fuel for the ones who are driving people the Kololo.
They have even used government school buses to get people to come to Kololo like this, the Kigezi High School bus have been used to get people there.
The NRM is celebrating winning the election and the Supreme Court verdict, still the way they did it should be celebrated as they have controlled the whole election and celebrating that is just pissing on the democratic values and the truth accountability for justice for the ordinary Ugandans, and instead they are all now respecting Don Museveni.
Jose Chameleone is having yet another concert for the Don and proving his loyalty to him and the crowds before the Don arrives on stage to say that he deserved 80% of the votes and that the country should have been better sanitized for the message of the movement. The values of the racket and that he is alone the kingpin of the country.
What the NRM Party said this:
“A very beautiful morning to you all. We thank you for voting and supporting NRM in the just concluded elections. Join us today and be part of the national celebration for the victory of our candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds. Lets celebrate together.. The victory is ours”. (NRM, 09.04.2016).
The NRM enjoys celebrating themselves and their ability to use their buses to get people to listen to their paid entertainers and the Don Museveni. So the NRM finish the General Election the same way they started. Ferrying Voter Tourists to the Kololo Independence Grounds as they also did in November 2015. Peace.
Dr. Kizza Besigye Statement after midnight at Kasangati:
“IGP Kayihura once again deceived Ugandans today that I’d been freed. It was fools day anyway!!! I took the pictures here after midnight- on 2nd April 2016. It terrible to have a leader of a police force that breaks the law routinely and willfully; that seems to enjoy telling lies; and that has no regard for the opinion of others!”
And here his last released picture to the Public from Kasangati:
FDC Statement on it earlier in the day on the 1st of April 2016:
“What was an open secret that Mr. kale Kayihura had instructed his policemen to move away from Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home has now turned into a fat lie, the Uganda Police Force has actually multiplied in number”.
My take on it:
IGP Kale Kayihura of the Ugandan Police Force might have had the ability to fool some people. But the pictures and the manifestation of the Police Officer talking in the phone while monitoring Dr. Kizza Besigey should be send a clear message, while they talked about the leaving the premises of Besigye’s gate and compound; they still have the metal-teeth and the Police Officers squatting in reach of the gate and still having the ability to check-in everybody who enters and leaves his home. So Practically the House Arrest never stopped and the illegal detention and unlawful detaining of the FDC Presidential Candidate and the man who never had the ability to really content the result of the February 2016 Presidential Elections have been sufficed to his own gates and home without being the ordinary man who can walk to work or even go out to buy his food. This has been going for over 40 days, since straight before the Election Day on the 18th February. So you know that the Police Force is still besieging the Compound at Kasangati.
Truly and clearly the IGP Kayihura lied and tried to deceive so that his master and the Government could work in Peace and hopefully without issues from the outside world; as even the U.S. Mission talked about progressing toward democratic elections in recent statement. I am paraphrasing the U.S. Mission, but that is in general what the army ally wrote as the Post-Election Period is going away and “ordinary” State of Affairs resumes before the swearing-in and the 10th Parliament sessions starts. As paraphrasing is not good enough here is actually the main quote in my opinon from the United States Embassy that is worth noticing.
Here what the U.S. Mission in Kampala says in their Statement to the Public:
“The U.S. Embassy notes today’s Supreme Court ruling affirming the results of Uganda’s February 18 presidential vote that saw President Yoweri Museveni re-elected to his fifth term. We encourage all Ugandans to respect the Court’s decision, and express their views in a peaceful manner” (U.S. Embassy of Kampala, 31.03.2016).
Certainly one thing is clear. The House Arrest of Dr. Kizza Besigye never happen and the orders from above would not let that happen, as he is the epitome of everything President Museveni is not, a legitimate leader compared to Executive; who have to House Arrest his main opponents. Peace.
Ugandans will not allow Museveni to impose himself on the country using NRM cadre judges, and the savage barbarism of Kayihura//Muhoozi killer-torture squads. The nation’s patriotic youths are igniting the fire of Revolution that will spread across the land in the coming months.
Uganda’s Revolutionary youth are leading the Struggle for Freedom, and their message of DEFIANCE is spreading like fire across the Motherland.
As the ‘CHAIN’ WARRIORS’ were successfully highlighting the state of terror in the country, by chaining themselves in strategic areas of the capital city, Music Superstars, like Eddy Kenzo, Bobi Wine, etc, were making their contribution by using their performances as a launch pad for mobilising the masses.
Free Uganda thanks these patriotic youth for paving the way for the evolving struggle. We applaud their courage and determination in the face of intense brutality and repression from the Museveni / Muhoozi / Kayihura negative forces.
Fellow Liberation Struggle Patriots of the young generation – the CHAIN WARRIORS, the MUSIC WARRIORS, the STREET WARRIORS, the CITY WARRIORS, the VILLAGE WARRIORS, etc, your noble stand against injustice and Museveni’s terrorism is inspiring millions of our citizens and preparing the country for the final show-down in the People’s Struggle for freedom and democracy.
A lot more is to come in the days and months ahead, and Despot Yoweri Museveni must know that the Ugandan People will not rest until he is squarely defeated in his attempt to illegitimately hold onto power after what was the MOST RIGGED ELECTIONS ON THE AFRICAN CONTINENT
Never mind what some NRM CADRE JUSTICES say, in such incredible shameless support for the Despot, Ugandan People are not going to allow the Museveni Family apparatus to continue forcefully imposing itself on the country. Ugandans will not allow Museveni to hang around state house for what are purely egoistical and self-fulfilling motivations.
Museveni must understand that this time round Ugandans are not going to play any SOFTLY-SOFTLY GAMES with him.
The liberty, democracy, happiness and ‘Museveni-less’ future they seek is not negotiable.
Ugandans have decided to move on without Museveni, and it shall be so, whether the despot wants it or not.
And, for God and Country, every means permissible by the Constitution of Uganda will be deployed to achieve the desired outcome.

“Today, Uganda’s Supreme Court dismissed the petition to annul the result of the 18 February 2016 presidential elections thereby validating the result. In its ruling the Supreme Court also identifies a number of areas in need of structural and legal reform.
In this context, the EU recalls the preliminary statement made by the EU Electoral Observation Mission (EOM), and the concerns expressed by both domestic and international observers about serious shortcomings in the election process, including the violation of fundamental freedoms and the obstruction of the opposition’s work in the post-electoral period.
The final EU EOM report, due on 18 April, will make recommendations, including on how the election framework can be improved.
The EU stands ready to continue its dialogue with Uganda to foster democracy. The Government of Uganda, Parliament, political parties as well as the Electoral Commission, and all stakeholders need to build on the experience of this election and to work together constructively and peacefully in the direction also indicated by the Supreme Court.”
Ugandan People Power Revolution in the making. The nation’s Patriotic Youth are leading the way. Freedom is the ultimate Destination.
Free Uganda applauds the courageous Ugandan youths who have today, 31st March 2016 launched the equivalent of the 1980 attack on Kabamba barracks by a small group of NRA guerrillas.
The difference is that this extremely symbolic action by the revolutionary youths of Uganda was entirely peaceful – CHAINING THEMSELVES TO POLES IN STRATEGIC AREAS OF KAMPALA CITY, as hundreds of chanting and singing citizens cheered them on.
The CHAIN WARRIORS have opened one of the most effective pathways to the liberation of Uganda, and they must be applauded for their determination and courage, in the face of brutal police arrests and torture.
Going forward in this Struggle, all creative means of defiance will be deployed by the People Power Patriots, but the Ugandan nation must prepared to confront the extreme and nakedly savage brutality by the Museveni / Muhoozi / Kayihura axis.
It is vital that the People of Uganda, while pursuing the freedom goal through peaceful and non-violent means, acknowledge the need to be open-minded about the possible use of ALL NECESSARY MEANS, and begin to build the necessary capacity for any such eventuality.
This call for preparedness to use ALL NECESSARY MEANS to secure the People’s Freedom and resist mass murder on the part of the Museveni / Muhoozi / Kayihura axis, is directed mainly at our brothers and sisters who are already armed and trained in the use of violent means, i.e those in the Uganda People’s Defence Forces, the Uganda Police Service and the country’s Security Services.
If Ugandans are to achieve the Burkina-Style liberation, which was initiated and overwhelmingly actualised by unarmed and peaceful citizens, those progressive and patriotic brothers and sisters in the armed services must be prepared to intervene on the side of the masses, when Museveni, his son Muhoozi and the rogue police general Kale Kayihura begin to commit mass murder of unarmed civilians or when pro-Museveni sections of the armed services chose to carry out a palace coup, as was the case in Burkina Faso, when the presidential guard attempted to reverse the People’s victory by carrying out a palace coup supported by the deposed president.
This foresight and visionary reflection on how things may go wrong in the course of the People’s liberation struggle is of vital importance to the success of the patriotic mission now underway in Uganda.
It is not good enough for the People to sacrifice their lives through peaceful struggle, only for their victory to be blunted or snatched away by the very illegitimate and criminal outfit that has imposed itself on the nation.
Where necessary, even the civilian population that is now involved in peaceful and non-violent defiance, must be prepared to use ALL NECESSARY MEANS should the evolving developments necessitate that course of action.
So, as the People Power Struggle picks momentum and becomes visible on the streets of Uganda’s capital and elsewhere across the country, it would be of strategic importance for the progressive forces in the liberation struggle not to rule out any RADICAL SOLUTIONS, IN THE FACE OF MUSEVENI’S, MUHOOZI’s and KAYIHURA’s EXTREME VIOLENCE, BRUTALITY and REPRESSION.
The Free Uganda (FU) view on the way forward for the Freedom Struggle is that Ugandan people must be prepared for any eventuality and all the patriotic forces in the country should empower themselves and the masses in ways that will be effective enough to overpower the reactionary terror machine currently assembled by Yoweri Museveni.
The Freedom Struggle is on!
