The Calvary sieged the Bukwo District; because the fear of the FDC Campaign convoy

Bukwo FDC Campaign Trail 060116 P1

The Calvary continued to stifle for the FDC convoy in Bukwo district. There we’re violence around the Teriet IDP camp earlier today, but the RPC of Sipi Gerald Twishime has been busy today! Where many of the FDC convoy got hurt in the battalion with the Police and two police officers also got injured by the tear-gas, live bullet and road blocks around the camp.

The campaign trail where scheduled to continue in the district. He also making ready to campaign in Seibei region, but they has been silent after the campaign rally around the Teriet IDP Camp.

When you see the photos of other places that we’re expected to have a visit of Dr. Kizza Besigye and the FDC Campaign Convoy it seems like the Police is ready for warfare and not campaigning. Is that the legacy of Museveni and the NRM-Regime? Not proper democratic values, instead they show violence and unjustified actions that is later claimed to be right by central police spokesman CP Fred Enanaga. We knew that we’re coming, they can’t help themselves. The police are a tool of the regime and the RPC or DPC is just a mouthpiece and the G.I. WOW of IGP Kale Kayihura who follows blindly his master and issues the laws when he can justify unjust behavior of his men, but that is not something we don’t have to worry about right?

Because we know Gen. Kayihura does just what his ordered to do. Just as the Electoral Commission uses the regulations as it fits Mzee, and makes it harder for the opposition, just as they have done today. The lawmen have gone more army fitted then UPDF and with machineguns bigger than Rambo. Stallone must grin where he is sitting and looking at the photos of his lookalikes in Seibei sub-county and Bukwo district! Instead NRM and NRM-Regime need a reality check for their election-violence that they sponsor, and this is what they will be remembered for. Be proud!

The NRM Chairman for Bukwo after seeing the violence in the area has deflected to FDC today after seeing how the Police treated the locals and the eruptions that it created.

Later in the day after the IDP Camp this happen:

In Napada Trading Centre when the FDC convoy came there the Police started yet again shot live bullets against crowds and cheering public to see the People’s President.

#Wesige Besigye! Peace.

Press Release: UPF tries to reason for their violent actions around the Teriet IDP Camp today (06.01.2016)

Besigye IDP 06.01.16 P1

Today, Wednesday, 6th January, 2016, the Police at Bukwo, restored law and order, after it dispersed violent crowds at Teriet IDP camp using means within its dispersal powers that included the use of rubber bullets.

The public order concern arose after the FDC Presidential candidate, Dr. Kiiza Besigye, who had successfully held two campaign rallies at Bukwo Trading centre and Suam Border Town council, diverted from his harmonized schedule to Amananga primary school playgrounds, and unjustifiably chose to proceed to Teriet IDP camp at Kapkoros. As a result, acts of public disorder emerged due to the indiscipline from the FDC camp.

During the course of engagement, two men were taken to Bukwo Health Centre with injuries sustained while policing the protests, that are however, not life threatening. These included Kokop Walter who was allegedly injured to the right hand by a stray rubber bullet and Kewei Augustino who was injured by a stick hurled from the violent crowd. One officer, PC Ngabo also sustained minor injuries.

The FDC presidential candidate cancelled his unscheduled visit and reverted to his campaign schedule. He proceeded to the two remaining venues at Amananga Primary school play grounds and Sosowel sub-county headquarters that ended successfully.

The police that is in charge of providing security during the electoral process, will continue protecting all law abiding people and political actors who play by the guidelines of the electoral commission.

We want to thank all candidates who have conducted themselves in a peaceful manner and caution those who fail to adhere to the guidelines issued by the Electoral Commission, that the police will not tolerate any acts of political violence, because it is criminal and punishable by law.

The Calvary went violent around a IDP Camp; when the People’s President we’re about to address them

Besigye IDP 06.01.16 P1

Yet another day of campaign rallies for the People’s President, who we’re campaigning in Bukewo district. He had already today had campaigning in villages before setting up for a rally near the Teriet Internally Displaced Camp in Kapkaros sub-county.

Besigye IDP 06.01.16 P2

This was not something that the Police of the area accepted. Gerald Twishime the  RPC Sipi and the police went totally gung-ho on the FDC campaign convoy. First they threw their natural instinct in and with that tear-gas into the crowd to disperse the people. Also shooting live bullets into the crowd; two people we’re seriously hurt and shot in their legs. The FDC men we’re manhandled. People who we’re hurt by the police we’re Nandala Mafabi, Sadik Amin and Ingrid Turinawe got one her leg broken by the police.

Besigye IDP 06.01.16 P3

Reason for this:  “The Police said Dr. Besigye has no right to address a gathering near an IDP”. Which law and why all of sudden is that not allowed?

Besigye IDP 06.01.16 P4

Hours earlier FDC had a successful campaign in Bukowo Town. So it’s sad that the whole day couldn’t be filled with that kind of actions and peaceful interaction between the public and one of their Presidential Candidate. But the Police in the area wouldn’t be remembered that way, sincerely yours IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura be proud of your men, your right?

Bukowo Town Besigye 06.01.2016 Campaign

Why couldn’t the rally around the IDP camp look like this, which we’re earlier this morning? Because the Police can’t help themselves, instead we got something as ordinary as election violence from the Uganda Police Force.

FDC continue with your defiance this election violence is nonsense from the forces of the government. Not righteous or justice, just foolish and damaging. Peace.
