The EC Bans Presidential Candidates from Public buildings

Uganda-Electoral-Commission

The Electoral Commission in Uganda have now officially banned all candidates from visiting hospitals, schools and places of worship during the campaign trail. They are not allowed to attend or have campaign rallies near public buildings.

That means that Amama Mbabazi or Dr. Kizza Besigye can’t visit the buildings that Museveni has built during his 29 years of steady progress. The Steady Progress is now that the chairman of Electoral Commission is showing his loyalty for getting more millions shillings each month.

Mbabazi M7 Besigye

This all happens after the painful pictures from Abim Hospital that shows how the kingdom of Museveni is looking and how weak his institutions are. That is why he can’t drive around in Personnel Armed Vehicle like he did in Abletong.

I just wait personally to when Amama Mbabazi or Dr. Kizza Besigye not allowed traveling on the roads to see the districts and villages. Because that will show how bad the structures are after 29 years of NRM. Though Bebe Cool will say they are magnificent!

We know that Yoweri Kagtua Museveni doesn’t have Statesmanship because that isn’t his ways. Just like the way he order police to follow and block opposition candidates or detain those loyal to his foes. He can’t help himself!

The IGP Kale Kayihura follows the order like a blind dog and can’t think for himself even his life depends on it. He is the definition of the mouthpiece of Museveni except for Captain Mike Mukula who is drinking the yellow drink and having yellow fever in this campaign season. Because he was quoting seriously saying: “Only Musveni have managed Uganda well”.

Kale Kayihura

Well Captain Mukula the other ones running and managing Uganda is long dead and no other have tried. So your premise is kind of weak, but you have the yellow fever and are excused.

We can see that the Electoral Commission is more and more partisan because of the weakness of the Steady Progress. The is understandable about the issues of weak and sick at the hospital and their sorry state shouldn’t be pressured with campaigning. That is acceptable if that we’re state of excuse from the Electoral Commission. The reality is that they fear showing the initial state of the premises and excessive neglect from the government which it hasn’t provided the public for 29 years. That pains Museveni now, since he is supposed to be Teflon by now! But he is not…

The Schools and house of Prayers is just because the government and NRM knows the popularity of Dr. Kizza Besigye and don’t want to get the congregations and churches to validate his candidacy. Amama Mbabazi have not been in churches during the campaign or invited too much. The Electoral Commission and the NRM fears more the power and public perception it gives the People’s President.

The Independent Prof. Venansious Baryamureeba we’re showing pictures of schools early in his northern Uganda campaign and claiming foul play by government for not providing sustainable educational components to the kids and the public. This must have been a sore and sad for the Steady Progress campaign. As we have seen today when the Police barricaded the Karuma Primary School for Dr. Kizza Besigye so he couldn’t see the school and discuss the state of it.

We can see that the Electoral Commission is living now in the fear level of NRM, an is not acting as a political partisan but as a mouthpiece of NRM and Museveni. That is something we have known for a while. But this is pure proof of the matter. They will now serve the matters of IGP Kale Kayihura and Museveni, not think themselves. That is illegal and dangerous. FDC and Go-Forward will continue to have issues with the Police and the Electoral Commission. They will be barred from visiting public buildings and have more trouble in January and February into the final days of the campaign trail as Yoweri Kaguta Museveni fear them more and more. Peace.

My letter to the Minister of Interior Affairs of Kenya Hon. Joseph Nkaissery on detaining John Ngirachu

Nkaissey 121115

Dear Sir Honorable Joseph Nkaissery!

You did say this yesterday!

To the whole world you said this:

 “Listen there is way, to tell you, You cannot get AWAY with allegation. So it is up to you, if you don’t want to relieve the sources, then you’ll fry Alone! It is…It begins today, if you’re telling the truth. Don’t worry if our friend will be saved. So long as he is telling the truth. If anybody, if you understand ENGLISH, anybody, except two people; the president and his deputy; anybody will be writing statement if you make an allegation, beginning today!”

We know the man frying at that moment  is John Ngirachu; the journalist of the Daily Nation; who was at a Police Station detained by the CID, after writing a story about your Ministry, which you runs honorable Nkaissery. There was to other journalist involved in the stories and not detained yet James Mbaka of the Daily Star and Alphonce Skiundu of the Standard.

This after your Ministry had questioned by the Auditor Generals query on the usage of funds and the use of total Ksh. 3,8 billion in a single day. Honorable Nkaissery you was even questioned on this matter by the Public Accounts Committee in the Parliament.

Your life doesn’t seem easy right now Mr. Nkaissery! You are a public person right? You’re an elected official who are in charge of a government ministry and the funds that brings. Journalist are tiring people, anybody who knows the ways of Daniel Arap Moi; was teaching you this right? Or was it anybody elese?

You sure learned by this history, isn’t that right Honorable Nkaissery?

The Nation has been the subject of frequent government attacks over the past 18 months. Joseph Ngugi, a Nakuru-based correspondent, was one of the first journalists charged in October 1993 with breach of security regulations for attempting to report on political violence in Molo” (…)”Mutegi Njau, the news editor of the Daily Nation, was arrested in April 1994, along with the paper’s Eldoret correspondent, and charged with subversion. The paper had run two stories on official involvement in political violence in the Burnt Forest area of the Rift Valley” (…) “In early January 1995, two Nation reporters were summarily dismissed in circumstances which caused many observers to believe this was a result of official pressure on the company” (Article 19, 1995).

Anybody who knows English and has heard it, remember this one, right?

“Paul Amina was previously arrested in August 1987 (see UA 214/87, AI Index AFR 32/29/87, dated 11 August 1981) and detained under Kenya’s public security regulations, which provide for the indefinite detention without charge or trial of those held to be endangering public security. No reason was given for his arrest in 1987, but it is believed that he was detained because of his reporting of politically sensitive court cases” (…)”Paul Amina, freelance journalist and former prisoner of conscience, was arrested by security police at the International Press Centre in Nairobi on Friday 16 August 1991. He was taken to an unknown destination where he is believed to be held incommunicado. He has not yet been brought to court to be charged with any offence” (AFR 31/26/91, 1991).

Seems like Joseph Nkaissery has learned well, though he needed to teach John Ngirachu a lesson not to make allegations that hurts you. You’re supposed to be Teflon. Anybody should know that! You have only two persons above you and that is The President and his Deputy; therefore detaining a simple little journalist shouldn’t be an issue. You run the Interior Ministry. He only has some Secret Informants and get some leaked information at the Parliament. That bastard!  

The Auditor General shouldn’t even have questioned your for the extra high spending in one day. That is your business, not anybody else, especially not somebody who check society and if there is check and balance. The coverage damage you, therefore it is damaging all of society. Because you’re a pinnacle in society while the Journalist is just a pencil pusher who never couldn’t even have teach the kids of today ENGLISH in Eldoret. You must forgive us. We don’t know English as you honorable Nkaissery.

Honorable Nkaissery you can see from Daniel Arap Moi as your lecturer, he was that also, so you must be one of his noble student. I write this to you because detaining somebody for not giving you the sources of their story on your ministry and monies you’re in charge of. I am sure you wished Ngirachu the treatment of Mr. Njau or Amina of the 90s Kenya. Since you think that is such a proud part of the political heritage! Since you trying to copy it and wish every allegation have to write a statement proving where they got the intelligence. You must be such a noble man Honorable Nkaissery who wishes to have all of this into your ministry. Honarable Nkaissery you must be great fan of extra paperwork to shut down your enemies. And they can’t be trustworthy people if they keep their sources to themselves. They should have Informers in Parliament. That is not noble like you. Anybody would know that.

Honorable Nkaissery what is the truth? What is the honest truth about the monies and your ministry? Why would anybody like the men of the Public Account Committee ask you questions? And why didn’t they ask you directly for statements instead of getting it from informants. You who are such a noble man Nkaissery! Anybody can see that.

I don’t want to to leave you alone or fry you Honorable Nkaissery! But I want to ask how come there was spent so much shillings in your ministry in one day? And why did you detain and ask the two other journalists to be detained for the story? Anybody who has heard the story, wonder about that!

They can’t be saying stuff like they do. Anybody should know the truth. The honest truth from a honorable man like you Joseph Nkaissery! CID got a statement and detained a journalist for an article. That the journalist himself said he got the intel from the Hansard. The Hansard is public property or is there something hidden in the English language that makes them not legal for journalist to read these?

I just want to know the truth Honorable Joseph Nkaissery for why anybody like Ngirachu was detained. That is a statement I want to see and also the reason for why since you have to power over the CID with your station at the ministry honorable Nkaissery. Can you tell that to anybody? I am sure you’re the best source of it. This cannot be seen as political insensitive. It’s just rational sir. So please if you understand my ENGLISH. Please tell this to anybody, the truth in a statement, your allegations of Ngirachu and his colleagues.

John Ngirachu 121115

Sincerely yours

Writer of Minbane.
