Opinion: Countering the nonsense of attacking Besigye as there are more dire need reactions from the supporters if they want change!

Besigye Kampala 11.05.2016 P4

The Defiance campaign couldn’t be an easy run; it would be and is a long walk to freedom. There isn’t a short quick and brief change out of thin air. The wish and concern isn’t only on the FDC Presidential Candidate of late Dr. Kizza Besigye. The arrests for Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka of Nakawa and his Court Martial; together with arrest of the ones who dare to protest against the National Resistance Movement in this day and age. Just like the Youth of Democratic Party who demonstrated against the greedy Members of Parliament we’re detained. The oppression of the NRM regime doesn’t go away overnight like morning dew.

For those of you who thought this would be easy. Yes I had hope in February that the FDC and Dr. Kizza Besigye would win, because of the men running he had the best agenda and the needed remedy. The NRM has involved the Central Government in a way where the directions of the fiscal policies and the cash-barred MPs to beg for greed instead of dropping policies and laws that matters. The NRM machine are more caring about skinny jeans, short skirts and porn than having working equipment in the hospitals and steady delivery of needed medicines. This is the proof of the rigid brown-enveloped system blessed by the almighty at the State House.

While that is happening there people with hope and see that the brown-envelopes won’t create any common good, but only for the current elite who eat the spoils of foreign donors and the secretive agreements between government and businesses. Getting mansions and luxurious SUVs before riding to the closest mall where even the Government Spokesperson Ofwono Opondo stole underwear. It’s just how the system is made to blatant regard the men who in all their honour bow their heads to the Mzee on the top. They are allowed to do anything and get away with it. Therefore the ones who counter this paradigm get whipped, detained or even disgraced in public.

FDC Youth 14.03.2016

Still, with this in mind the blames that the current embattled Besigye is at fault. Not because he hasn’t tried and done what he could empower the opposition with vigour to assemble in Power 10 (P10) Structure and other to counter the NRM Poor Youth or any other group that the Government used to silence the FDC. The FDC mobilisers has been detained as common as the roads development has been bribing state officials; it is so common that the news of detaining a FDC Youth or Mobilisers are day-to-day acts of the Police Force. So it is not like Besigye and the FDC haven’t had heavy-water to carry.

The assurance that the Defiance Campaign wasn’t made in fear of repression from the NRM or the Government; should have been well known as the NRM Regime has since it establishment done what it could to harass and disrupt the rallies of Dr. Paul Ssemogerere and so on. The ones forgetting that is currently forgotten the past. I am sure even the current leader of DP Norbert Mao has had issues under the last Campaign Trial in 2011/2012. Norbert Mao we’re even detained during the campaign in this calendar-year because the UPF cannot help themselves to make life hard for real opposition.

So with that knowledge of this and even after the 10th Parliament have started and the Plenary Sessions begun. This is the start of the new breed of MPs, who wish to get more funds and more salaries then the former legislators. They want to be rich quick and get that on the public funds. They don’t have ideas of their obligations to represent their citizens and not eat of their citizens. Even if they just follow what the ‘Old Man with the Hat’ has teaches them as he came with empty pockets to the Parliament and now decades later are richer than god.

Ready to Move with Sevo Music Campaign for 2016 P4

So if the ones caring thought the Defiance Campaign would succeed on its own like a marching band making noise on the gates when it past and everybody enjoying it. You’re wrong because some hates the marching band and other wish they just went down more street. Defiance of Besigye had to get public support and truly be invested in it to get the change happen. The fear of the repression of the regime and their sanctions might be a reason for why it has partly failed for the moment. Because if they wanted they should do more than quickly after thinking of boycotting the “Tubonga Nawe” artists who campaigned for the Cow farmer.

Besigye had #KigwaLeero wishing for a brighter future and make a difference. He asked for a government with accountability and we’re there for the public. Not like the ones that is there now who is there for former rebel who takes the riches for himself and leaves scraps for the elite who is loyal to him.

Defying the regime could not be done by him alone in Kasangati, it could be only be the hardliners who stood by Besigye in his hardships. It has to be made the ones who really want to get rid of the regime of present. It will not be easy and get there easily. Some has spoken of violence and using the tactics of old, like the ones that Mzee used himself to get power. If you do so wouldn’t you be the same as him? If he used guns and guerrilla warfare to get into power and you use the same doesn’t that make you a rebel who dreamed of power and not a true democrat? Even if Ghana’s Jerry Rawlings made it and ushered in a positive political system, that doesn’t necessary work for Besigye.

I doubt that Besigye want to use violence and rebel through the rifles and assassinate his opponents. As he was parts of the NRA and doesn’t want the change to be of the old ways, only through guns and on the battlefield. There is precisely in history that none President or Executive in Uganda has been changed peacefully through the ballot, instead through the bullets, which makes sense at least to those of us who believes in peaceful transitions.

VPN 18.02.2016 P2

That means that this is not alone on Besigye, this is on the supporters and the opposition itself. That means that struggle of the opposition has to defy the current regime. With means that hurt the regime and that discontinue the fiscal funding of government, that counter the legitimacy of the institutions and the opposition has to build strong grass-root movement that has most of the base in the population. So that you have all corners on the knees and weak; so that the actions of government can be countered by people’s sanctioning them. The best acts of the defiance during the Election period were the use of VPN to counter to Social-Media Ban of the Uganda Communication Commission (UCC). So the people have it naturally in them when they feel betrayed and knowledge of ways to stop nonsense from all-controlling government.

It’s that kind of defiance that is needed. That kind of acts that hurts the MTN and the others who practically funds the regime and keeps the taxation without representation going. Besigye can be blamed, but he is the spokesman and the one who is tormented by the regime already. So the man has done and continues to do his part. The people behind have to use their wisdom and ways to destabilize the regime by peaceful means and even risk their freedoms. As so many youths and people associated with FDC has been during the years. Also other political parties have also felt the pain of being opposition. So the ones blaming Besigye has lost the basic component of it all: the key is always the people! They, the people have the fate of the government in their hands; the Government lives either on the trust from the public or of the fear of the people going against it.

The people decide not only through secret ballots, but through their faith and their assessment of the situation of how they believe they should govern. Some might accept the current regime in silence because of the fear and the belief if they go against it they lose it all. But if those all thinks like this than the organizing against the current regime will not become of anything.

Now with this the FDC and Besigye have to show Defiance and be upfront as they have to use their support to weaken the NRM and their henchmen’s. This is not only defying in court and going from kangaroo courts and smiling on NTV. That is to directly counter the regimes acts in Parliament, demonstrate and boycott. Use other ways with even stronger force and more success than Walk to Work. That will not be easy and that can only happen if the momentum and belief together with the peoples. The Peoples or the Citizens can only act when they are sure they will conquer the regime, if not they will demonstrate and lose the little they have. They lose their hawking job and their voice where they were. That is not acceptable.

Kapwocha FDC 080116 P1

What Besigye has to do is not to give in or give up. He is the voice of hope and a brighter new day. But to get the brighter new day for the Ugandan people under a new government who have other belief in institutions and service delivery than the people has to support Besigye and his cause. Not because Besigye is only one who can do this, but because he is the ones who champion it through defiance on his own.

The ones who attacks Besigye for his campaign hasn’t understood it; but is more worrying is that people can only stand behind their voice in the wilderness or leave the belief of regime change. And giving up a 30 year regime and an Executive that has been there since 1986 is hard. Because of the ways the draconian laws and fiscal policies are set-up. That should give reason for the citizens to react with demonstrations and peaceful mobilizations in the ways of the VPN to defy the all-eating NRM and their in-accurate methods of silencing voices which isn’t their own. Peace.

Budget Financing Lies in Balance – Besigye (Youtube-Clip)

“Former Forum for Democratic President retired Col Dr. Kizza Besigye casts doubt on government hopes to raise 26 trillion shillings to finance the 2016/2017 national budget. Besigye says the majority Ugandans can’t afford to spend on commodities that result in revenues for government, arguing that some have already cut their expenditure” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

Opinion: NRM Fiction continues as Kizza Besigye’s “Treason Trial” at Nakawa Court pending until mid-September!

Nakawa 12.08.2016 KB

As the National Resistance Movement regime continues their oppression against the FDC leader Dr. Kizza Besigye; the treason charges against the Opposition leaders after his swearing-in of himself on the 11th May 2016. We are now in mid-August and still the case is not set in stone. If there we’re anything on the charge of Treason they would have time to collect the evidence and affidavits of the witnesses who we’re connected to the conspiracy.

The Nakawa Magistrate Court had yet another session for the case that continues indefinitely as all the cases against piles up so he cannot live an ordinary life or be a proper politician.

What was up today:

“Former Forum for Democratic Change presidential Candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye is this morning (9am) expected to appear before the Nakawa Magistrates Court for mention of treason charges preferred against him. Besigye will appear before court chief magistrate James Eremye Mawanda” (Radiocity 97FM, 12.08.2016)

Defence in court today:

“…my Lord there is no law that says investigations should take 6 months. All the issues they are raising to charge me are all obvious and true.  They say I demanded an audit and it’s true, they say I won elections and yes it’s true. So what are they investigating? Your worship I ask the court to put an end to this “.

“”They said I had asked for an independent Audit, yes I did. They said that I said I had won an election yes I did. The said that I had put in place a cabinet Yes I did”

“So what is making them to take this long to charge me? They can reinstate the case whenever they are ready.  I pray that this case is stopped today.”

What is the end of today in Nakawa:

“Nakawa court has adjourned the hearing of Dr Kizza Besigye treason case to September 12th over pending state investigations” (NBS TV Uganda, 12.08.2016).

KB Nakawa 12.08.2016

So the continuation of the Court dates for Dr. Kizza Besigye and trials proves how much the Government works to silence the Opposition that are questioning the legitimacy of the NRM Regime. Therefore they are continuing to pound on the man. Because they doesn’t have the evidence or the witnesses to the case yet, even if they have continue this prolonged investigation and trial dates.

The NRM and the Ruling Regime is really conning when it comes to this war-games with fellow opposition as this is not the first time Besigye has a Treason charge. By the time now it doesn’t seem to end. The Cases even from Walk to Work protest in Kabale Magistrate Court is prolonged and this 2016. It proof of fiction from the ruling regime and no other probable causes… if so the evidences would already be collected and taken to court.

The reality is that President Museveni and his cronies think they are so wise and genuine, but they are not. They are just playing shadow games with their own destiny and their little reputation as they use the oppositions as Pawns. That is why they all of sudden have the Uganda Federal Alliance in Cabinet of the 10th Parliament, together with the Uganda People’s Congress and one from the Democratic Party. This proves the level of extent for validation the NRM government needs, but doesn’t get from Dr. Kizza Besigye.

With this in mind… with the reality of the fiction that they claim to be reality they pursue their own demise and their own tales of trials against fellow citizens to continue to hold power. Something that proves: how little rule of law and elections matters as they are only hold to continue the prolonged escapism of Musevenism. Peace.

CJ Bart Katureebe cares about justice, the man who banned a word from the dictionary? The word of Defiance! I am impressed by his words to the Press yesterday. This came out yesterday.

 

Besigye is free, but I got a strange feeling…

Besigye High Courts 12.07.2016

“Do not fear them, this is our country” – Dr. Kizza Besigye

A hunch, a smidge of interest and a worry as this is a sign of what to come. This is not a token of goodwill from the state, the state under President Museveni will continue to pound on Dr. Kizza Besigye; something he has done so frequently since he left the NRM back-in-the-day. The 100 Million bonds from High Court proves that State Officials and the Government backed sanctions we’re a façade, a high rise with empty rooms and not a functioning building.

Today is a weird day, supposed to be celebrating, but parts of me is feeling that the Courtships and harassment will thrive, as his stage and place is countering the legitimacy of under the current leadership. It’s the true color of smacking the fist to the table and feeling the pain of actually doing so. I am supposed to be happy that the Nobel politician and freedom fighter is released after months behind bars in Luzira Maximum Prison on phony charges, I should be happy that Judge Wilson Musalu Musene gave him a hefty bail. Still the Treason Charge is still on him and not entirely free, he still have to fight the case, one court date at the time every second week starting 26th of July 2016. So the Government and Lawyers and State Prosecution is still working on the matter and finalizing the evidence of the conspiracy.

Besigye Heroes welcome

Why we know that authorities does in these occasions by now:

“A traffic gridlock is building up in Kampala Central District for the second day running. Several roads leading to and around the high court in the heart of Kampala have again been closed by the police ahead of the ruling on the bail application” (88.2 Sanyu FM, 12.07.2016). As there are even reports after the hearing and the scheduled driving home through Central Kampala as people wanted to greet the battled politician who we’re driving home, the Police had to beat on the public to get them away from the car and the areas surrounding it. The famous “Koboko Squad” they are nicknamed.

The truth for matter it is, the house in Kasangati, just by pictures of his release home. Proves that Kasangati Police Force have been put in regard of the situation and I am sure that Police Commander James Kawalya are prepared with all the tools as his disposal, as they would not totally grant his freedom, even if the General Election is over and the “Business as Usual”. Though they, the NRM and President Museveni have the problem of legitimate rule as long as Besigye is around and questioning them.

What sure will happen on one point is that his staged freedom from the Government, will become so much that he will detain him at Naggalama Police Station or Kiira Road Police Station, before the sunrise that particular day as the nuances of crowds and cheering public when he passes by, just as seen today. The friction between the public and the police are also vivid as the second nicknamed police “Kifeesi Police” is around and violating their rights as there are beating and harassing citizens who comes to greet the People’s President.

Besigye Kasangati 12.07.2016

We can now ask ourselves, in honest approach, even with a little happiness as the waiting for his release from unsolicited detention as a suspect of treason. What will be the next verdict and the next way for the government to torment the man and arch-nemesis of Museveni? Because it is about time and effort from the Executive to take man down and trying to break, even if it has failed a hundred times already.

I wish it would not happen and that true justice would prevail, if so the man would be residing and be the man who runs the State House at Nakasero and in Entebbe. But alas that is not the equation right now, as the stolen country and stolen funds are in the hands of gun-loving President who has no fear and no quarrel to lie and deceive to keep the power he remains. The question just happen to be, by what force and to what extent does the Police Force and Army plan to continue their Post-Election Modus Operandi and to what degree?

He has his momentary freedom back and greeted by his supporters, but for how long. How long will the authorities, accept the conundrum and let it be. What will the Army infused NRM do to the greatest dissidents and his loyal cadres? That they haven’t already done and what level of oppression against the already hard-battled and destructive political games from the Executive? We can just question, but in the next few days the picture will be clear, and the obvious result is that somewhere will Besigye be behind bars and inside a Police Station, while waiting to be sanctioned his God given freedom, yet again. Peace.

“Shock at the kasangati court as a police officer testifying against Dr. Kiiza Besigye fails to corroborate his earlier testimony with the recorded video he produced in court to pin Dr. Kiiza Besigye on his defiance case. The officer’s evidence a video detailing incidents said to describe Besigye’s disobedience came under tight objection after it contradicted with the police statement he recorded earlier implying the video may have been edited” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)

Kizza Besigye at Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court 15 June 2016 (Full) – (Youtube-Clip)

Dr. Kizza Besigye appeared before the Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court on 15th June 2016 to hear a ruling on whether the treason case against him would be heard in Luzira Prison Court instead of Nakawa Chief Magistrates as the state had wished. Nakawa Magistrates Court Chief Magistrate James Ereemye Mawanda dismissed the application by the prosecution to have the mention of Kizza Besigye’s treason case transferred to Luzira prison court house.  Chief Magistrate James Ereemye Mawanda also ruled that prosecution’s claims that the former FDC presidential candidate’s security is at risk are hearsay and not supported by any evidence.  The Chief Magistrate said the mention of Besigye’s case should proceed at Nakawa until the Chief Justice decides otherwise. The matter was adjourned to the 29th June and the file in this case has been called by the High court to have Besigye’s right to bail considered. During the proceedings Dr. Kizza Besigye also listed a number of concerns he had about the conduct of his case up to that point and he pleaded with court to heed to his concerns about having a fair and judicious trial” (NTV Uganda, 2016).

Lukwago 02.06.2016

“Am short of words to express my disillusionment with this level of impunity and bastardisation of the country” – Erias Lukwago

There have been a few nights and few days with sorrow for the Forum for Democratic Change and their leadership, that is far from over, as long as President Museveni and National Resistance Movement exist. So with this in mind, there are still Courtship for FDC MPs, FDC Leaders and Activist that are involved in the Defiance Campaign of the 2015-2016.

Just as the IGP Kale Kayihura written a Motion and Affidavit on the 30th May 2016, as they will continue with the “Interim Ex Parte Orders in AG V. Besigye (Constitutional Petition No. 13 of 2016)”. This happens after the suspended orders went out on the 1st June, as they got this served yesterday at the FDC Headquarter on the 1st June 2016. So with that in mind, the Uganda Police Force together with Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma, the man who was officiating or swearing-in President Museveni on the 12th of May. In the midst of the period that the Political Party of FDC was sieged and even the FDC HQ was at one point a crime scene by the Police Force.

While Dr. Kizza Besigye who is still in Luzira, was supposed to be tried first day on his “treason charge” against the Republic of Uganda, to be correct dishonoring President Museveni. Since he is such a problem for the state of affairs, he is National Security threat as he can weakens all transport in Kampala, not in the same way as the jams recent days with Turkey VIP Erdogan and South Korean President Park Guen-Hye, as the central Kampala and roads to Entebbe International Airports was closed. The Same Police Force could not also as they we’re on standby for the President and his guest, be able to see the KCCA Councilors and Lord Mayor Lukwago, as another excuse of the matter.

Well, today the Police and Judiciary continues with the struggle against Opposition, as the incumbent Mayor Lukwago had to show up at Makindye Magistrate Court, where 7 persons from FDC was represented to answer to the Interim Order of Stephen Kavuma, but Dr. Kizza Besigye for the second day in row couldn’t be produced to Court.  The action of today’s court was the actual extension of the ban of “Defiance Campaign”. Because Lukwago and Besigye at one-point was charged with “Illegal Assembly” at Nsambya Sharing Hall in 2015; a trial that happen today without one of the main suspects as he is supposed to answer and the continuation of the suspension order of the “Defiance Campaign”.

Museveni 31.05.2016

This happens in the same space as the President Museveni in his speech in Parliament, at the State of the Nation Address, is saying this:

“The only pollution to this glorious and massive Liberation Movement has been the mistake of the careerists introducing the use of money in electioneering.  We shall also struggle against that.  Therefore, democracy is one area where we do not need aid because that is what we fought for here and in the rest of Africa for many decades”.

Ingrid Turinawe 01.06.2016

This happen while certain close in the leadership of FDC Doreen Nyanjura and Ingrid Turinawe was arrested around the Nakawa Court yesterday. While the level of tortured FDC leaders and youths have also been showed to the world in the recent months. As there was at one point a dozen FDC Youth detained in a Container on the Outside of the Rukungiri Police Station, they we’re charged with “Terrorism”. As their leaders was also detained and not charged for days in this May 2016. Hon. Moses Byamugyisha, was working for their freedom for days upon days. As the Police even when Rukungiri Court Order their withdrawal of justice, they still lingered in the Container there.

Now with this in mind, there are still charges on Dr. Kizza Besigye served in Kabale Magistrate Court together with Erias Lukwago, the same is surely also in Kasangati Magistrate Court, where he has served charges against the State for their unlawful house-arrest of Besigye himself, days upon days without charges in February and March in 2016, when they we’re besieging his home in Kasangati in 40 Days straight. Something that IGP Kale Kayihura should answer for!

Besigye Detained

There are reported that Besigye will be produced at the Constitutional Court as they will answer to affidavit of IGP Kayihura as he had intelligence of FDC Supporters was supposed to make problems around Nakawa Court, yesterday, apparently. There are also reports that the Police have sealed of Constitutional Court, as he is set to come there from the Fairway Hotel Junction down to Mulago-Wandegeya routes are closed as the Black Van with Besigye supposed to pass. So that the Judge presiding, surely Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma will continue the “Interim Order” with the passage of National Security as the DPP Mike Chibita couldn’t produce him yesterday as the passage would counter the news of Turkish President and President Museveni smiling on the front-pages on New Vision today. It would look foolish towards the new donors and allies from Turkey. Therefore they had to wait until today when both Presidents had left the Central Business District of Kampala and could siege the roads for the return of Besigye  to the Constitutional Court, where he last time we’re in late April 2016.

What I expect is that it will be continued as he is now by the Authorities and Legal forces seen as a “National Security” issue and a man who creates havoc and problems. Even when that is not true or proven; as much as the President wants to silence the FDC and hope that the population soon forgets the General Election of 2016 and the shameful rigging of Presidential Election 2016. That with the Army deployment and the continued stronghold of Police, as they continue to detain and harass the opposition, therefore the Democratic Party and Uganda People’s Congress is so silent, except that Hon. Jimmy Akena had to take his last shot at Dr. Olara A. Otunnu and blame him for the election. Not for his maladministration and agreement with NRM led to people despising the UPC, as they are now a branch of the NRM-O.

Fred Ruhindi TV

The Attorney General of Uganda Fred Ruhindi is issuing the extension of the Interim Order today because of this:

“The Attorney General wants court to declare both Besigye and FDC’S defiance activities as unlawful since they are not in conformity with the prescribed processes of challenging a presidential election. In the affidavit supporting the Attorney General’s interim order application, the Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura says unless court stops FDC’s activities, the country will go back to political unrest and insecurity” (The Street Lawyer UCU, 02.06.2016).

So with this in mind, we know the tale will go, it is not all of sudden that the NRM Regime going to work against itself or going to contradict itself, more than President Museveni does with his speeches and development agenda, as that is the same in 1980s, he just don’t know that himself. The Constitutional Court will today continue to ban the Forum for Democratic Change and their Defiance Campaign as the “National Security” will come first. Because that “National Security” is meaning the continuation of the rigged coup d’état from President Museveni and his NRM Elite have done on the 20th February 2016. So the Police Force and their tear-gas brigade fear the people who supported Besigye and the true state of electoral violence created under their reign and their initial Police brutality against civilians. Therefore the Attorney General and Inspector General of Police wants to make sure he is silent behind bars and that his party is muffled; because if so they can continue prosecuting the leaders and head-activist of the FDC party without interference of the population. That is securing the NRM elite and Ruling Party for continuing with some sort of business as usual.

There is now reports that AG Fred Ruhindi: “Attorney General withdraws application for an interim order (incl. an extension) against defiance” (The Observer, 02.06.2016).  So the hardwork and paperwork delivered together with IGP Kayihura will not be worked on.

FDC Lawyer 02.06.2016

Reasons for why they did so: 

“According to the FDC legal adviser and lawyer Rwakafuzi Radsrus,attorney general sought it important to withdraw the case on grounds that they government could not hold the million people who could invade the court and that even Dr. Kizza Besigye as the accused had written to appear in person without being represented by lawyers. Before at around 02:45 Beisgye’s Ernest Kalibala brought a letter signed by the accused (Besigye) himself requesting for his personal presence as by law for the accused to be available in court on such charges. In a letter signed by the Director Civil Litigation Denis Bireije quotes that under section 2 (2) of the court of appeal rules with orders for the government cost and a copy has been sent to FDC and Besigye Kizza. Rwakafuzi further says that the main application of attorney general seeking for the constitutional court to interpret the laws that ban defiance still stands but that it is useless since there has never been any where the government petitions the constitutional court against its citizens on constitutional interpretations” (Mukose Arnold Anthony, 02.06.2016).

Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago statement on today’s affair:

“Today midmorning, Hon. Mp Bakireke Nambooze, Kasibante Moses, Ssemujju Nganda and I visited Dr. Beside at Luzira Maximum Security Prison. We compared notes on the bizarre political developments in the country, including the current legal gymnastics in courts of law. I was personally shocked to learn that the prison authorities were never issued with a production warrant, requiring them to produce him before the Constitutional Court this afternoon, to respond to the AG’S application seeking to extend the ban on the defiance campaign. Besides, I think it is abuse of court process for the State to seek for injunctive orders against a citizen languishing in prison. Little wonder that they opted to withdraw all such applications. on a positive note, our legal team is working around the clock to ensure that Dr. Besigye regains his freedom. Aluta continua” (Lukwago, 02.06.2016).

Still there are enough cases in courts and acts from the Police, even if they are not officially banning “Defiance” they are still monitoring and detaining FDC leaders and activists. While also silencing the Opposition.  Even with the Defiance Campaign partly legal, it is still court cases and charges awaiting, not only Besigye, but many of the other close leadership of the FDC and the Youth Leaders in the Country.

There are nothing set in the stones that they will act differently, but they will follow orders from up-high and from their President, the man that feeds them and continue to inflict electoral and violations against multi-party democracy to protect their master. That is the only thing they know and they are bending their knees to supply the President with orders and tear-gas to assure that they are silencing the people, who are supposed to be sensitized for his ruling and his vision, and nobody else. That is the KEY to the RESISTANCE of Ugandan politics, to be unison agreement with Mzee Museveni and nobody else. Therefore people like Besigye, Lukwago and other have to be silent or not be questioning Museveni, because Museveni is always right and acting correctly. Even if his speech yesterday proves that even with 30 years in Power and Rule, he has the same problems in the Republic of Uganda, as when he took power. Peace.
