EU Delegations are headless chickens; sorry let me be correct: They are White Zombies with no Character as they are reaffirming their relationship with Uganda!

EU EOM Press conferance

Sometimes I wish I was naïve, blond-dumb and totally stupid. Sometimes I wish I did grasp the movements in politics and was not allergic to bullshit; not that it is shocking that the European Union walking away from Museveni because of ICC statement from Museveni. While they are still wishing to have a cordial cooperation between the Europeans and Ugandan Government, as that what they said today in the Chimps Reports. That was a sad read… and silence hit the room!

The white zombies said this to Ugandan Press:

““In response to press reports, the EU Delegation wishes to put on record that the EU Head of Delegation attended the 12 May inauguration of H.E. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, and was honoured to witness the full swearing-in ceremony with other invited guests” (…)”The EU Head of Delegation left the ceremony after the official swearing-in, due to the observed non-cooperation with the International Criminal Court, and for that reason only” (…)”The EU Delegation takes this opportunity to reaffirm its close partnership with the Government and people of the Republic of Uganda” (Mugume, 2016).

Total rig Uganda

Well, the short term memory of these European diplomates who either works directly for Total E&P who is steady waiting for the suspended case at the International Centre for Settlement and Investment Disputes under the World Bank, as it was suspended recently; latest was that the case was suspended and will be considered again when all parties are savvy and that happens on the 18th August 2016; if not when Hon. What’s His Face is selected by President Museveni to run the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development. But that is then, and must be the priority of having a cordial relationship with Uganda.

As they have all forgotten what the European Union Election Observers Mission found out and should have shunned the Swearing-In ceremony if any of the words in the report was worth typing:

“Vital electoral reforms did not take place prior to the 2016 elections. Proposed amendments to the electoral legislation, compiled under the ‘Uganda Citizens Compact’, aimed at enabling the conduct of democratic elections, including to increase transparency in the appointment of the EC’s members, to restore presidential term limits and to improve parties’ financial accountability, were disregarded by the executive. Consequently, the legal framework contains gaps and ambiguities and therefore, in several instances, falls short of international principles for holding genuine democratic election” (…)”While legislation contains provisions on reporting and disclosure of political finance, these are neither followed by parties and candidates, nor enforced by the EC. This lack of transparency weakens the credibility of the elections” (…) “Consequently, the legal framework contains gaps and ambiguities and therefore, in several instances, falls short of international principles for holding genuine democratic elections” (EU EOM, 2016).

So, the works of Eduardo Kukan seems to be in vain or only done so he could get a Splash and write a report, while the European Diplomates could go back to busy as normal, only with scrutiny of the ICC comment and trying to leave the election behind. As they now are wanting to this and forgetting their own credible and just had an election that falls short of international principles for holding genuine democratic elections; but that is not important for the European diplomates, because February 2016, is so far away from May 2016. It’s like a life-time in European time and in diplomatic pressure time, as it is such a fuzz to ask for justice and credible elections when you are a donor country and giving aid to the Government of Uganda. It is like President Museveni is right, foreign diplomates and Western diplomates doesn’t have heart to really do scrutiny, unless it is LGBTQ or they we’re detaining white journalists.

These White Zombies who are in it to win it, even if faking it to make it or something like that. What the European Union gains at the moment except for being hypocrites and short-term memory and not having any character, other than weak as sass. Soulless bastards from Europe with no swag and honor of fellow brethren and just throwing the works of even other EU personnel who made time and effort to scrutinize the whole affair of an election and you show up, to the man who held not a genuine election and lack of transparency to reaffirm you partnership with that guy. Are you serious, where do you European Union diplomates stand? Either you are dancing on sea-waves smoking some pot in a shisha or your totally dead-inside, henceforth a Zombie diplomat with no character as you are only there for business of the European nations and not to really stand for anything politically. As the walking away is not really doing anything then looking like kids who didn’t get to play with the cool-kids at the birthday-party; so congrats European Diplomates, you have yet again done a splendid job in Uganda.

Declartion President M7 20.02.2015 P2

 

President Museveni of his Seventh Term looks through you, I a pundit shoots you down and others are calling it theatrics and a stunt with no real value; which I hate to say is true as weak tea need a load of sugar to be tolerable to drink. Time for the European Union to either step-on or step-off as they can’t one day say that the Government of Uganda is cheating their elections, then weeks after wanting to reaffirm relationship with that cheating government; that is not real and shows that the EU Diplomates are only empty suits, zombies with no values and could easily be changed with some Boris Johnson assholes or another numbskull from Amsterdam instead of the ones that are parts of the EU Delegation to Uganda. As these men does not care about European Union Election Observers Mission and cares more about certain known values, as they are funding AMISOM and other missions that Ugandan Government carries out, so that EU doesn’t need to send armies to certain areas on the African continent. Why can’t these Zombies just say that, instead of acting so porous and wage, like cracker on the end of the table instead of hard as rock; they could act as men, but that is not diplomatic in the eyes of the European Union, I guess? Peace.

ICC Request Republic of Uganda to answer for not arresting President Bashir of Sudan at the Swearing-in, recently!

ICC 17.05.2016 Bashir

Statement by the Spokesperson on Uganda and the International Criminal Court (14.05.2016)

Uganda-Inauguration-1205122016_w540

Committed to preventing crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide, and to avoiding impunity for the perpetrators of such crimes, the EU confirms its continuing support for the ICC and its work.

Full cooperation with the ICC is a prerequisite for the Court’s effective functioning.

In accordance with established approach of the EU and its Member States, the EU regrets that Uganda, a State Party of the Court, did not fulfil this week its legal obligation, in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 1593, to execute the arrest warrant against any ICC indictee present in the country.

Opinion: The only good news from Kololo, today; and also surprised that the Western diplomates didn’t know President Museveni sentiments on the ICC (or tried to forget)

M7 Guards Inaguration 2016

Well, the good news is not that there was a Swearing-In of President Museveni for his Seventh Term, bite me, it is not fifth, it’s Seventh! Got to teach the National Resistance Movement to count, after that the international media some recent history to not shave off the first decade in Power for Mr. Yoweri in Uganda.

The good news was:

“Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said U.S. Ambassador to Uganda Deborah Malac and a visiting Washington-based official, along with several European and Canadian diplomats, abruptly left the inauguration after Museveni made negative remarks about the International Criminal Court in his inaugural address. She added that the U.S. also objected to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir’s participation in the inauguration. Al-Bashir has been charged by the court for atrocities in Sudan’s western Darfur region” (Lee, 2016).

ReaganMuseveni

Because this set the perimeter of next inaugurations as Uganda is not the only country where the Opposition is under fire and where the human rights are squabbled for the Ruling Regime to control. But the reaction from the European Union representative and the United States is a bit late now. United States Government have supported them the Ugandan Government for three decades as the Ugandans have fought wars you wouldn’t touch with a your little finger. The European Union have done so in good faith and with the hopes that this will be one of their success stories as the beginning of Museveni terms he was actually sounding like a democratic ruler and had swagger like no-one else and even swallowed the Structural Adjustment Program; more than many other leaders did for long-term loans and direct-budget aid to the Ugandan government.

But that is not why the diplomates left the Inauguration of President Museveni at the Kololo Independence ground. They left the event in midst of the speech and everything because of mentioning of International Criminal Court, the discontent that exist in certain parts of Africa, as the ICC have target many African leaders and Warlords, while nearly none of the allies of European or American Government have been taken. Which make it seem like Post-Colonial tool and certain totalitarian, and Police State leaders feels that especially since they might be the next in line to be charged by the ICC.

Museven Debate16

Even on the second Live Presidential Candidate or the second #UGDebate President: “A founding signatory of the Rome Statute, on ICC: Yes we should be out of the ICC. ICC is not serious. It is partisan. There are so many people who should have been tried if they were serious. The way to go is to have our own African Criminal Court. Trying to work with ICC was a mistake”.

So if the American or European diplomats were surprised by the words uttered by the President, they should check his track-record, and are you naïve? He is the same brother who toyed with the worlds in the Nairobi talks in 1980s, muffled the involvement in Rwandan Patriotic Front, the direct involvement in wars in Democratic Republic Congo that got rid of both President Mobutu Sese Seko and President Laurent Kabila. His involvement in South Sudan and also the claimed help of President Nkurunziza after the coup d’état in 2015; there are too many instances where he has went to the gun for himself and others. So that he dislikes the ICC should be seen as natural for his Western Allies, that have given military experts and equipment over decades.

He used ties to Libya to get arms to bring down Obote, Obote whom he had a agreement with to get rid of Idi Amin. This man has done whatever to get power and get powers other places. He is ruthless and does not care how far he has to go to have it. He builds people up and burry them if they get ambition. So many men have fallen and so many fallen without the reason or the authorities have cleared the cases of the killings. Many men who have had honorable positions and been high up in the military have been silenced by the NRA/NRM. And this isn’t just rumors, this is known, but not something that is talked about.

Face to Face Cote D'ivorie

So European diplomates and American ones, you have to consider your obligation and role in Uganda, the walkout and the assessment of that, is only a small embarrassment, but to cut donor-aid and military equipment would mean something. To endorse directly Dr. Kizza Besigye would be another force of change. That would be like Alassane Ouattara won over Laurent Gbabgo in Cote d’Ivoire in 2010. Who made his own army and took over power when the International Community recognized Ouattara in 2011 and later detained Ggabo. So there are possible ways of creating the changes, but hopefully without guns though that is the only thing President Museveni believes in.

I know he told at one point he wanted to be a Pastor, but over the time he became a gun-loving, bush-war and embezzlement patriarch who oppose the idea of any other human being having a vision of leadership in the country he is running.

That isn’t a beautiful picture, but there certain questions remain why the American and European were mad about this:

“After introducing ICC indictee Bashir, Museveni said: “We lost interest in the ICC. We thought they were serious.” Museveni said he had supported ICC at the beginning but realised that “ICC is a bunch of useless people” (Trending.co.ug, 2016).

This words uttered from the mouth apparently was too much from the Western Diplomates today. Together with them we’re also the invited and warranted President Bashir; for me some strange reason no problem with the other hectic and problematic despots, dictators, lingering Presidents and so on; that also showed-up for the event. Why no problem with Cameroonian Biya? Why no problem with President Obiang? Why not mad about President Mugabe? And list goes on of people who disrespect democratic values and freedoms in their countries… though not sanctioned by the ICC.

For being diplomates, they should have known at least about the words said by the man on the Presidential Debate in February 2016. The ICC has already issues within the African Nations and the African Union have had talks on removing itself from the International Criminal Courts because of Post-Colonial affairs and targeting African leaders. So with that in mind, this doesn’t help the cause for the Europeans or Americans unless they do something serious, a ruthless man like President Museveni. Needs the guns and equipment, if not he trade with Russians and trains together with North Koreans, he has done it before and will do it again. Even order second level army equipment from China instead of getting training and army deals with Americans. The Western diplomats should not be surprised and should know his history and how reckless he can behave.

Why do you think Hon. Paolo Muwanga even feared and was disgusted with the man? He even understood to what extend the President would go when he got into power. Since he spoke beautiful words as it was needed in the Bush, the people and international community supported him.

Now there a long run since 1986, lots of European and United States Presidents have been in Power and changed leadership, while the Ugandan leader have lingered on and not caught flack before now, really? Late to the Party or is it the later redeemer now?

The issue is that they have known he has these sentiments, as the escalated violence, detaining and use of army against his own citizens. We can see it with the recent Post-Election killings in Kasese, the pro-longed Northern Uganda Conflict that lasted since 1980s into peace agreement in 2006; and the Ugandan-Fueled guerrillas in the DR Congo.

So that he is a little rash and rough with the introduction of President Bashir is the issue all of sudden, is sorry to say a little weak tea as you have given way for him to do all the other activities and not really condemn that. This because President Museveni have been a needed ally in the region after the fall of Mobutu, that American Government had for so long; that is why President Clinton even praised Museveni together with other leaders.

Obama Merkel Hollande_0

Today should not be surprising, the European and American Diplomates should have known his sentiments on the ICC, and he want to be a great leader, so he would invite anyone who wanted to show-up. This here is just the proof of it, nobody expected President Obama or Chancellor Merkel or even President Hollande to attend: They would rather have a cup of tea then showing-up. The strangest was that the former loyal ally President Kagame was in the wind… but that just so the strained relationship.

Well, this was my two cents. Not beautiful… just the way it is; when you have trusted a man to fight for you and expecting him to be peace loving democratic values full of integrity and standing by for liberty and justice in his Nation, while they have for decades let him get away with murders, destabilizing neighbor countries and done other adventures without giving him much of even a slap on his face. Then you expect him to be the grandest man… you have lost the plot fellow Western Diplomates. Peace.
