Opinion: Museveni needed to warn the public on his Nomination Day…

I hear chatter about those who intend to cause chaos. I am a Presidential candidate but I’m still President. I can assure you, nobody is going to threaten our peace. Those who will attempt it will regret it. We don’t joke around, NRM fought to bring peace. Nobody has more guns than we do, but we don’t go around intimidating people. I hear they are working with foreigners. No foreigner is going to change anything here in Uganda. To Ugandans, if you have information on such stupid acts, report it to authorities. It is possible some Police officers are corrupt, but you can use other channel” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on 2nd November 2020 (Nomination Day for Presidency).

The President has today gotten nominated as a “presidential candidate” for the 2021 elections. Though this was just a automatic event for him and the National Resistance Movement (NRM). We all knew this day would come. It has been scheduled since 1986 and was a “non-starter” for the most of us.

It is not he would be annulled or be rejected from standing as a candidate. The President was confirmed and verified by the Electoral Commission first. The old man with the hat is only going through the motions. As he could have been riding in on a donkey or on a electric kick scooter, as he would pass through the suburbs of Kampala. However, we knew the man would never do that. He needed the Presidential Convoy and all of his guns on display. 

What we do know and what he did was incite fear and intimidation. That is his steady M.O. and what he has done forever. We know that he has the backing of the army and the police force. That CMI, ISO and other outfits works directly for him. This is common knowledge and isn’t new. He even have LDUs ready to aim at the ones standing in his way. Therefore, the cause of fear and stirring the pot. Is so common for this man.

A man that has been in power since 1986. Still has to use these tactics. Shows how far he has come. That he haven’t ensured real peace and true popularity with the people. If he had the popularity and the trust in the people. He wouldn’t swing out with the guns and the need to speak like this. Because, if he was truly popular. He would feel the love and would bash in it. Not use weapons, the army or the authorities to keep people in check.

However, that is what he does and got too. Because, this is the only way he stays ahead of the curve. This man wouldn’t be the President or have power, if it wasn’t for guns. That is why he clings on to it and uses it at any means. The guns and the soldiers are his buddies and the ones saving his day. He wouldn’t have the audacity or the power, if it wasn’t for them.

That’s why he had to say it. He wasn’t even discreet about it. The man just said it: “nobody have more guns than we do”. That is his message. That is his measure and his safety pin. This is what keeps him relaxed and at sleep at night. That he has the guns and the others doesn’t. He got the army, the police and everyone else armed to their teeth’s. As long as it stays like that.

He feels safe and secure. Not worried about anyone, because he can always aim those guns against the ones standing in his way. That is the memo we can get from today. Peace.

Opinion: It’s either another rap or another lie [the Mzee Akululu Saga]

There been stirred controversy this week as the former People Power singer and National Unity Platform (NUP) Ronald Mayinja released his song ‘Mzee Akalulu’. As song which praises the President and the National Resistance Movement. Today, there is even more ripple effect.

As Mayinja states this: “I said that I am not going to contest. Now that I am a musician, I got a client from NRM who asked me to do for them an advert and that is what I did” (…) “Just like a TV station like NBS TV will play an advert for NRM and in the evening they play an advert of an opposition party and we can not say that it is partisan, I also just want to work” (Jonah Kirabo – ‘Mayinja: I am still in NUP, I just recorded an advert for Museveni’ 31.10.2020, Nilepost.co.ug).

This here clear the air right? Well, it isn’t that easy. Since he wants to say his a bought musician and did trade his political affiliation. Only got used for a few tokens and a few silver coins. However, there is certainly more to this.

As Secretary General of the NRM Justine Kasule Lumumba said this: “We welcome musician Ronald Mayinja to NRM, but I must say, NRM didn’t pay him for the song. He did it on his own as a musician” (…) “This is a sensational hit that will boost the party’s mobilization for President Yoweri Museveni” (David Lumu – ‘We didn’t pay Mayinja for ‘Mzee Akululu’ song – NRM’ 01.11.2020, New Vision).

This seems like a prequel to this campaigns ‘Another Rap’ or last campaigns ‘Tubonga Nawe’. The NRM and the President surely has that prepared to fill the airways with their song. To hopefully go viral and have a clip that people talk about. Have the right amount of popular musicians and get the verses that sings of glory for the regime.

Ronald Mayinja did right on his song. He dropped the dime and showed the supposed “greatness” of this President. Put him into video-clips of big-man leadership. It wouldn’t be shocking if someone connected to NRM hired him to sing this. The song is a gig-song. The song is made to fit a campaign. Maybe, the NRM haven’t paid directly, but through a middle-man.

There is always some straw-men working and maybe Lumumba doesn’t know. It is also possible that Mayinja is lying and tried to get suction with the President. That wouldn’t be shocker either, but because of the backlash. He needed to back-track the tune and make it look otherwise.

Therefore, it is a lie here somewhere. Everything is speculations until the bank-accounts and the pay-offs are proven. Until then, there is only allegations and hear-say. Mayinja should know best, but he might come with a little fig to get off the hook. Lumumba might lie, because she either don’t know or had any prior knowledge to it.

There is also been reporting on giving a car to the musician, which wasn’t stated why. That shows there been some monetary gains for the artist. However, your not getting a vehicle for nothing. So, there is a possibility that Lumumba doesn’t know about the transaction composed with the Land Rover Model 2018 in question.

That is why the song have a questionable history. The origin and the reason for its existence is already questionable. This is before it has even hit the airways properly. We know what the songs presence and what it does, but if it was ordered by someone connected to the President.

That is why we can state that there is a lie here and someone is lying. We just don’t know who does it. To be frank it is just a song… a gig song and not the first nor the last to praise the “old man with the hat”. Peace.

The Campaign of Fear 2020 Edition: As Museveni prepares for 2021 Presidential Elections

The National Resistance Movement (NRM and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is preparing for the 2021 General Elections. As always the President and his regime is using all means to have access and control ahead of the polls. This giving supplementary budgets to the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF).

The red berets ban of the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) is one key component this election cycle. Everything looking alike military attire can cause trouble. This being berets, clothes and even logos. The UPDF will use force and also call in the Police Force to take the goods and charge the ones wearing it. They have even arrested 70 year old lady for wearing red. That is how far they are taking it this election cycle.

One thing they are also doing this year is to re-issuing the Violence Suppression Unit (VSU) at the Uganda Police Force ahead of the Polls. This is a units specifically aimed at the crowds and the gatherings of people, as the state is having “scientific” campaigns. Therefore, the ordinary fashion of campaigning is suspended within this election cycle.

The UPDF have also made use of Local Defence Units (LDUs), which will be used as a tool to incite fear and intimidate the public ahead of the elections. As they are locally trained armed personnel, ready to shoot and kill. If anyone dares to question the authority of the state.

Another newcomer is the joint security and media council, which is issuing guidelines for the Media Houses. One that has barred National Unity Platform (NUP) aspirants across the republic and especially, if they are wearing red berets. The Media Houses have also been warned by the Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) to not host NUP aspirants, as memos have been and possibly loose license to broadcast, if they do. That is the initial campaign strategy of the regime to bar the real opposition from the airways.

The continued pressure now ahead of nomination days is that Uganda Police Force is coming with warnings of processions and gatherings around the Presidential Aspirants. As they have put curfews over several parts of Kampala. They have given out warnings of tear-gas, arrests and said boda-boda’s shouldn’t gather. Calling groupings of boda-boda’s militias even. That is how far the authorities are going these days.

We can see how the state is working on overtime. The UPDF have already stated they are a partisan government entity under the NRM. Civil servants are supposed to be automatically loyal too and so fourth. The State is really using all means to keep the system alive and kicking. This is why the army and police force is coming with intimidating force ahead of the campaigns.

Instead of being there serving everyone equally, the NRM are using the state and its arms to beat the public into submission. The armed personnel and police force is there serving the NRM as an entity and not serving the whole state. That is the brutal reality in all of this.

That is why the State House and the President have ensured they have LDUs, VSU and other ones to ensure total control ahead of the polls and during campaigns. The President is allowed to have much people around his nomination day, while the others are banned from having over a certain amount of people following the convoy of the candidate.

Surely, there will be blood, there will be tears and there will be suffering. As the state will address all opposition with a rough hand. There will no mercy and also fierce retributions towards the public. That is the reality of it all.

There will be more and the next 48 hours will be testing. The state have prepared for this. They are inciting fear, using intimidation and using the joint security apparatus to silence people in their way. That is what they do. They cannot act with humility and give people way. No, they got to shoot and then investigate why they shot later. Peace.

Opinion: Baffled that VP Ssekandi won his race…

If there was one National Resistance Movement (NRM) Candidate for Member of Parliament (MP) that I would thought would cease to exist, it would be current day Vice President Edward Ssekandi. Who was running for another term in Bukoto Central County in Greater Masaka.

So, to know that he again get a chance to run in a General Election in 2021. A man who has been an MP since 1996. His been the VP since 2011 and this would continue as long as he got ambition to succeed the President. By all his actions and his way of being in the wind. The VP is secured and can eat like crazy.

VP Ssekandi is a ghost and irrelevant. Still, he was able to get recognition in his constituency. This is why its weird that nobody else would win over him. Someone who would go door-to-door over the years. Steady campaign and be recognized.

Everyone knows that VP Ssekandi exists. No one can state what he has done or delivered. Ssekandi is just a mirage, someone behind the scenes who happens to appear every blue moon.

That’s why its weird that he even get voters behind him. VP Ssekandi might be able to shake a few hands and say a few words at a burial. Nevertheless, his not a great lawmaker, neither is he a representative for change.

VP Ssekandi is the one who doesn’t make a fuzz, doesn’t make a difference and doesn’t even utter a public word. Unless, it is a tribute and a speech for the deceased. The Bukoto Central has initially given way to another public speaker to officiate events. Yes, his not won it yet, but don’t expect shock in the up-coming elections in 2021.

This man will win there too. If his on it, because he knows his the VP for the President for Life. The one who has no ambition and only serves his master. The VP for the bad days and for the glorious occasions. However, he will never be there to say anything to rock the boat. Neither, will he cause any controversy or even issue a statement on a scandal.

This man is the true testament to live ghosts. The silent whisperer and the one haunts the VP position.

Ssekandi is like an eidolon or a poltergeist, even if he is a real person. Because, he is usually not seen or in public. Even if he is a high ranking government official and a MP.

It is hard to think he is a mortal, but immortal instead. A supernatural person, who gets re-elected and continues to be spirit flying over the Republic. For some reason, the state, the party sees him as useful.

That’s why he “wins” elections. Because, it cannot be for his charismatic persona or his track-record. Because, anyone who has made a motion, petition or even an article in New Vision has done more than this man. Peace.

Mzee celebrates mediocrity ahead of 2021…

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni knows there is no real challenge ahead of 2021. The General Election of 2021 is rigged and fixed. Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine knows this. The Self-Styled President for Life will not accept a loss or losing. That is why he will use all means to do so. We all know this. The election results of 2021 was written in stone and was secured with fatal bullets in the mid-80s. That is the mere reality.

So, Museveni can come with a quick comment, but it shows his true face:

Whether Ugandans want Bobi Wine or “Bosco” (I am made to understand that means Museveni), that is a matter that will be settled early next year. However, recently we had semi-finals in the form of elections of the disabled, the elderly and the youth. Who won the matches in the 3 matches?

Bosco won without too much preparation. I am looking forward to the finals. Greetings to your foreign backers who fear a strong Uganda. Too bad for them” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, 28.08.2020):

We clearly see his message. He celebrates victories on the special elections. It is every rich to celebrate victory over Bobi Wine who has only had months to prepare a party and run candidates. The NRM is the state and has fielded easily candidates everywhere. Often unopposed and sole-candidates like in all elections. The President is celebrating mediocrity, when he screams of joy and celebrate this.

He says without much preparations? Seriously? There was well planned party structure for so long. The NRM knows this and the population knows too. The Electoral Commission and everyone else knows this. It is just a mockery to act like it was done on a whim.

That he looks forward to the “finals” is to be expected. He knows his winning. The President is winning, not because of policy, manifesto or achievements, but because he got the public at gun-point. His awaiting the rigging and misuse of power to linger in office for life.

It’s funny that the President pushes the ideals of foreign backers for Bobi Wine. The President wouldn’t have a long lasting time in office, if foreign backers didn’t offer grants, aid or donations to his government. His army and government institutions needs foreign funding to run. The President can act like a foreign lawyer is a foreign backer. However, the NRM and the President … wouldn’t be what it is … if it wasn’t for money from elsewhere.

President Museveni can act a fool, but his only a dummy for doing so. He can cheer for the mediocrity, but that doesn’t make it great. Peace.

Opinion: Museveni doesn’t need to win, but he needs legitimacy…

The ones who thinks that the 2021 elections is about the polls and the ballots. They are blistering naive, because it couldn’t be further from the truth. The election in the republic isn’t about pledges, policies or even the legacy of the President. No, its about his legitimacy.

We can wonder, is the public willing to give him that? Is the public and international community prepared to cheer in the 8th Term of the President?

Yes, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is running for his eight term. The President who has been in-charge since 1986. The President and his party, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) needs the legitimacy. They need credit and accreditation. The state needs to be relied upon and outside support.

The state is borrowing to its knees. The lack of proper grants and donor-funds is hitting the fan. The state is having an evil cycle of loans, borrowing new money to pay interests of the previous ones. While the grace period of major infrastructure development projects will come into action as well. The budgets will be strained and the lack of domestic revenue will be more vital. As the donors, the lenders and everyone else see the tragic demise and self-destructive ways of the regime. You cannot build a sufficient state on borrowed money.

The NRM knows and the President needs to accepted and respected. The results needs to be verified and result in overall positive vibes. The President cannot afford to be looked a cruel henchman, but a statesman. A man who used to be the future, but now is a wise lecturer. Who has the vision and knows what the state needs to be fixed.

Even though the old man, the President has promised the same development, the same economic turnaround and changes in society. He has had the three decades to deliver that, but he will speak of it. Claim people are lazy, opposition are insects and so-on.

While the things he needs the most is the craving for recognition. The President needs to be acknowledge and in high regards. That is why the election need recognized and legitimized. The results are already printed in stone. They were on the skyline since the mid-80s.

President Museveni doesn’t need love, but he needs credit and needs security. The state needs that and the NRM does so as well. Because, if it don’? Then the negative spiral and crippling economy will sooner or later hit the armed forces and the President will loose his most trusted allies. The soldiers and security organizations, which keeps a iron-fist over the republic.

He need that stamp and verification to move on into another term. Peace.

Mzee’s unhinged speech

If you stand in the way of the NRM after patiently working and negotiating, we shall remove you. If you are doing other things, we may not be happy, but we shall ignore you” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (20.08.2020).

Today is the final day of the National Resistance Movement Delegation Conference ahead of the 2021 elections. It has been very standard, but the today the President is holding his Address to the Nation. Which is like most of his speeches. He has done the same over the years. Tonight is no difference.

He will do his thing and tonight was nothing different. That’s why I will just take a few small quotes. Address them and call it a night.

Here we go:

I thank NRM people for participating in the past election. Stop being enemies of yourselves. Our only enemy is the one who tries to block our forward movement” (Museveni 20.08.2020).

That is why we fought with Idi Amin. Some people say we fought Amin because he killed people. Even if he hadn’t killed people, we would remove him because he didn’t understand our mission” (Museveni, 20.08.2020).

‘I have met people like Full Figure, Buchaman. I demand that the NRM leaders avoid the politics of elitism. In Luweero, when we were fighting, we were with the people” (Museveni, 20.08.2020).

It is just like we are supposed to brush over these things. That the President goes to these attacks on people. He does it so easily. Makes people targets and shows his attitude. The president always got to remove, crush or get rid off. That is just his ways and he doesn’t know anything else at this point.

What is also striking is that he continues to forge the narrative around the bush-war. It is a story that never gets old. It a revolving door. He even proves what was his mission. The mission wasn’t to liberate, but for him to rule. To ensure that the NRM got power. The importance wasn’t to get rid of Amin and Obote. No, it was only for the NRM to rule and for him to stay in power. This is what he initially stated today. You gloss over that, but incidentally what his saying, which is showing the grim reality of his reign. When that was the goal of the whole bush-war for him.

That his continuing to pound for the ghetto as a result of Bobi Wine’s rise. His doing this to prove his stature that and also his party. However, that is a neglected area. He can try to softly make it into the struggle story, but that doesn’t make it more true. As the NRM haven’t done much for the ghettos, but now want to be seen as the saviours of it.

Therefore, the whole speech today was just another one. There was nothing brilliant about it. Just another rant… Peace.

Opinion: Museveni’s stern warning against careerism [is hypocrisy…]

Finally, the NRM needs to expunge the politics of careerism and re-instate the politics of mission-led leadership. It is not just the: “who”. It is, first and foremost, the: “what”? What is to be done for Uganda’s salvation, for Africa’s salvation? Once you remind yourself that the “what” in the case of NRM, means the 4 ideological principles: Patriotism, Pan-Africanism, social-economic transformation and democracy, then, it is easier for you to decide on the “who”.Who is it that seems to understand and adhere to the three principles? Do not intimidate, do not assault, do not insult, do not bribe, but persuade by explaining and exhibiting good conduct” (Museveni, 18.08.2020).

At this point of time in August 2020. A man who has ruled the Republic since 1986. The administration, the government, the Members of Parliament and civil servants are all a reflection of the President. All of the creations of institutions, policies and directives has been made by him or for him. It is not like the system isn’t in the vision of the President.

With this in mind. His speech of “who” and “what”. Goes back long in the lingo of the President. Museveni asked late 1980s and early 1990s. Then he even dropped a book with speeches “What’s Africa’s Problem?”. Therefore, this is following a pattern of this man.

The President have used this argument before to defend his overstaying and lingering in office. That it’s about the causes, the development and wealth creation’s instead of being about him personally. Even if that goes against everything he said and did in early years in office.

The same president that keeps the same entourage and cronies in close association. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) is filled with old relics, people who are having careers at ages when other are forced to retire. The NRM and the Cabinet is filled with old people and meal-ticket politicians. That is all like that, because of how corporate and cash-filled politics has become under his Presidency.

He knows “whose” the problem, but he will not go after himself. That would be out of character. He would never resigned or give way for succession. That will only happen … when he either stops breathing or internal coup d’etat against the man.

Therefore, his final ending and warning to politicians. The type of politicians he has created and awarded. If there wasn’t an incentive to be like that. They would operate like that. They would act differently, because they follow the leader and be examples for the Republic. However, he has made them like this.

He will never take the blame or the responsibility. He is the “who” and the man who never fixed “what”. The man could have appointed “who” and made it possible to fix “what”. Still, there was never a real interest to do so. If so, he wouldn’t need the grants, loans and multi-national organization to cover his tracks. The man knows this and blames for the ways the politicians have become.

President Museveni is the “who” is never solving the “what”. That is why his indispensable and have to continue… and the cycle repeats itself. Peace.

1986 Speeches vs. 2020 Response [Museveni edition]

Well, I had to do this. As the President put forward an ideal of what age does and what politics is. In that regard, to answer him back. I thought what way could I do it best. Well, I remembered some quotations that is another reflection and proves the mind-set has changed over the years. Not strange after 34 years in power. However, President Museveni shouldn’t get off the hook.

That is why I first take a piece of the 12 pages or 13 pages response to Social Media, which the President unleashed on the world. I will not analyse much of it. Because, well, it is waste of time. But I will address one piece and then show what he has said in the past. Just to show how age matters and not just ideology as he said today.

Take a look!

Social Media Response:

You old man, you are too weak, you must retire and hand power to the capable young people. The NRM answer, young and old, is that politics (which means management of society) is not biology (young, old, woman, man) but ideology. Ideology is like diagnosis of a patient and prescribing treatment. Similarly, political actors, individuals or groups, must first carry out diagnosis of the society they want to lead and prescribe a cure in the form of ideology, strategy and programmes (manifesto)” (Museveni, 06.08.2020).

Well, we see the defence there. He surely likes to think that is a brilliant move. However, it is contradictory to himself in 1986. As there are certain things he said and I will show that underneath here.

A piece of the Fundamental Change speech of 1986:

There is, in philosophy, something called obscurantism, a phenomenon where ideas are deliberately obscured so that what is false appears to be true and vice versa. We in the NRM are not interested in the politics of obscurantism: we want to get to the heart of the matter and find out what the problem is. Being a leader is like being a medical doctor. A medical doctor must diagnose his patient’s disease before he can prescribe treatment. Similarly, a political leader must diagnose correctly the ills of society. A doctor who does not diagnose his patient’s disease adequately is nothing but a quack” (Museveni 26.01.1986).

Museveni addressed Dar Es-Salaam University on the 11th July 1986:

You, as young people, should be at the forefront of making sacrifices for Africa. Often, in Africa, instead of young people being at the forefront of the struggle for social justice, they are at the forefront of the struggle for privileges. Your mission is to understand the politics of your country, and of Africa in general, in order to to discover negative and positive politics. You must discover the path Africa should take in order to get out of the situation in which we found ourselves. Whatever profession you choose, you should be an instrument in that struggle for the greater understanding of the economic, social, and political problems of Africa. Therefore, an ideological grasp of what is right and what is wrong becoming crucial” (Museveni 11.07.1986).

Here we are seeing a different understanding from the same man. Which is really special, but nothing new, as this man have to bend on every word he has ever said. With all the years in power. He got to twist his words and trade waters differently. In such a manner, that the liberation got traded away on the altar of power for life.

In this regard, Museveni says that someone uses politics ina manner where it make what is false into true. Which is what Museveni does in 2020. He says NRM is open to everyone and has answers for everyone. However, that bus have left the stage and is already overcrowded.

What is funny is that his still the medical doctor 34 years after. Talking about diagnosis in 2020, as he did sort of 1986. On that point his still the same man. But, on youth and their roles, they are just a part now. Not the front-line, the forefront of the struggle. No, they are just a piece who has to follow the ideology and the management of society. Which is very different from in 1986. When they had to discover the problems and get them out of it too.

Now, they are just supposed be on the bandwagon, the bandwagon that was the issue of the past. As they we’re only in it for the privileges and not to fight the struggle for social justice. Most likely the old man has trouble with the youth fighting for social justice today. Because, they are fighting him to get social justice. That is why his not mentioning that. As he wants everyone on his team and being part of his ideology, but not give the social justice he cried havoc for in 1986.

That’s how easily to show how power corrupts. How a man can go from saying things to inspire, to things to keep status quo. Which means himself and his old guard running the show. Since this man will not let go. Peace.

Work-Out Plan Part II: Museveni’s misguided publicity stunt

“After work last night, I challenged my Bazukulu to an indoor work-out. We did Forty Push-ups. Just like I have always advised, even at your own home, you can stay safe, and remain fit and healthy” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (05.08.2020).

In April 2020 after about a month of lockdown in the Republic. The President after a small waiting period did release a 2-minute tape showing his running skills and his weird push-ups. Which became a running joke and satire. As his ass was so much up, it nearly looked like the old man was training for something else.

Alas, the Point Blank skit is back at it again. He released a new tape, sadly not a Pornhub, but a Work-Out tape part 2. This time it’s a 1,31 minutes long tape, where he runs and take proper push-ups. You still see his wealth and grandeur of his estate. A fancy TV, beautiful blue floors and whatnot. The President got wealth and can prove some sort of health too.

However, this home exercise thing only makes the old man look foolish. It make him look like a joke. Trying to be youthful and of full vigour as his clocking the age of 75 years old. Yes, he can be proud of the ability to move like he does and have the health he do have at that age. Nevertheless, the man is out of bound and out of touch. If he thinks this is the trick to gain support for his overstaying in office.

Mr. Africa’s problem is that leaders never leave office. Is that the fundamental change of guards never came and that no one is following the correct line. Mr. Mustard Seed grown into a big ass tree, who will not serve or not deliver hope to the public, but instead empty yields.

The old man can think this second round of Kanye West Work-Out Video will reach the masses, but he will only be ridiculed. This is not the sort of tape you unleash on the masses, if you want to be taken seriously. No, this is the run of the mill, skit to play for friends and take a shot every time he makes a push-up.

Museveni is a dumb-dumb for this one. His neither cool, collected or seems like a fella who should run any public office. Instead, he should get a personal trainer and go to a gym. Maybe become a Hugh Hefner for the ladies of Kampala. Who knows, but this is not the act of a serious politician. That is for sure.

Bosco, Bosiko or Jajja, this is a bad move. Making you look stupid and that is fine by me. However, kudos and keep on pushing. Peace.
