My letter to the 10th Parliament on their reckless behaviour!

10th-parliament-sep-2016-p2

Dear Members of Parliament!

I know by now that you doesn’t’ care much about the National Economy or about Transparency as you excluded yourself from the citizens you represented when you gave yourself a giant tax-break with no-income tax. That is the way you are I guess, reckless misbehaving children who are creating havoc in the candy store pointing at all the different kinds of treats and wants them all, even if it make them sick of sugar; they still want it all!

You guys, ladies and gentleman, the so called nobles, the so-called honourable citizens of the Republic have no totally forgotten your place and your reason for co-existing in the Republic. You might think that your above the people, the citizens, the one that you represent exist because of. Even if you think you exists and breathes eats and have pleasure because of President Yoweri Museveni, let’s be clear he is just using you!

I am not mad that you want to have air-conditioner in the North or the Eastern Building of the Parliament, it’s hot and you guys doesn’t want to turn into hot-air or Wokoloso. I know that, you want to peaceful creatures, which doesn’t kill Kasese or support arms for the rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo. You want to keep cool and be great support of the Republic.

I am furious over you wish to grand yourself 4 station wagons for whatever purpose of trading socks at Kololo Airstrip or having secretaries to drive some of you around on your shopping spree at Game or Garden City. That is all up to you and the use of the Station Wagons that you acquire to Parliament. You already have a massive fortune in Car money and doling it out when you started your terms as MPs because your official duty needs that the public offer you luxurious transport. Not take Taxis, Specials or boda-boda’s to Parliament Avenue, which is beneath you. You just like eating the monies of the public who would so!

I understand that the Parliament isn’t built for nor have the facilities for all the MPs now. Since you’re Executive, the chief of Rwakitura and the whole nation has let the nation sore with districts and parishes since his dire beginning of power in the 80s. It was nearly any districts when he entered the building as a Defence Minister under Dr. Milton Obote, now it is more than pages in the Kampala Eye and whatnot Tourist Information brochures that are delivered at Entebbe International Airport. Therefore the amount of MPs has soured with the amount of districts; a cow hasn’t been butchered as many ways the districts in Uganda has been during the last decades under Museveni.

So that the MPs needs office space and rebuild their accommodations is responsible acts of the Parliament, though costly because the share amount of MPs created under the President all of his terms. The MPs are in this one reacting with sense, but they should question the need for all of their services, even if it means giving up their wealthy new acquired lifestyle in the Capital.

What makes doesn’t make sense to me, in a nation where the state doesn’t have enough funds to allocate for the Presidential Jet or Helicopter of the farmer of Rwakitura. So when the current reflection of that in mind, the 10th Parliament are allocating funds and finding ways of giving Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah. Because these noble creatures and honourable minds needs to take into air and land wherever. Since their roles in Parliament is damn important that they need to follow the Presidential Jet and Helicopter that the State House cannot allocate enough funds too. So they can all stand still at the Helicopter Landing-sites in Kampala. At the Merry for the Kadaga and Oulanyah who dearly need them for their service of the country. They need to be mosquitos who can travel in the air and suck funds out the taxpayers coffers like the mosquito suck blood of their pray. If the Speaker and Deputy Speaker are lucky they will give the nation malaria as of the purchase and maintenance so the inflation keeps rising and the dwindling economy needs more debt to feed the fiscal imbalance of the state budget. The same state budget the Parliament allocated funds to their helicopters. Their needed helicopter that they will silence the MPs and show their way in Parliament; the Parliament will controlled by the waving wings of silence and the blood sucking drones the Speakers have become.

If you don’t understand the spending is of the chain, when the Mulago Hospital still lacks needed equipment, when other state institutions is depleted and civil servants not getting salaries. At that moment of time… the Speakers doesn’t need more perks, they need to be fiscal responsible and show the Executive just ways, since he is not caring about the Bank of Uganda’s hard work to stagger Inflation and the running debt rate. So when they are using public funds as their playground, these runs rapid wild in spending to be sure they can play all the cool games and be spoiled kids. That is what the Parliament and MPs are right now. Time to stop, rehash ideas and think of accountability, transparency and being fiscal responsible! Peace.

Mzee is missing a “Presidential Handshake” to maintain the Presidential Jet!

m7-presidential-jet

Long live the almighty President Yoweri Museveni, who can spoil his fellow cronies and mismanage funds in a splendid way that even his Presidential Jet is lacking funds. He is the only Executive and President who has this capacity and this arrogant ignorance to pull this one off without any consideration to the current state of the economy or the implications of where the funds has to be taken from. There are certain lack of fiscal policies and holding procedures as the constant scrutiny from Auditor General and other Government Officials are steady on the allocated funds used without supervision or proof. Therefore a Presidential Jet and Helicopter at the State House budget is not overwhelming, it is more of the same. Apparently, the maintenance of the Jet and Helicopter is underfunded and need to get money.

As the Parliament Watch so wonderfully stated today:

“State House is seeking for Shs 6.2 billion shillings to facilitate routine maintenance of the presidential jet and helicopter. State House Comptroller, Lucy Nakyobe, while presenting the institution’s budget for the 2017/2017 financial year before the Presidential Affairs committee on January 23, 2017, told legislators that the current budgetary estimates are meager to fund maintenance of the chopper and jet. Nakyobe presented the budget before the committee, in which under unfunded priorities, Shs 4.6 billion is provided by the Ministry of Finance, out of Shs 10.8 billion budgeted for by State House. Committee chairman, Fred Mwesigye acknowledged the need for money to maintain the presidential jet to be provided. “These machines must be properly maintained so we need to get the money,” Mwesigye said” (Parliament Watch Uganda, 24.01.2017).

Certainly, the President needs to shake his own hands and find the needed funds. Because there are apparently enough there to pay the cronies and “winner” of the Heritage Oil and Tullow Oil drilling tax case. Still, there is not enough to buy parts and fuel for the Presidential Jet. Which is ironic that it is about the same amount of monies that are spoiled on the Presidential Handshake. If the President was wise he would see this malfunction, but I think he rather take monies from a ghost-SACCO or ghost-NAADS than actually take the ill-given funds to his own Presidential Jet.

President Museveni surely would be reckless to take the funding from Health Care and allocations there, as the state of Ministry of Health is dwindling, not only with fires, but also with lacking medicine and procured machinery for their treatment. It is reasons why the rich and the elite fly abroad to salvage their health. Still, the State House really needs money for this plane, they do not want to be in charge when the Presidential Jet falls from the sky and the reason is a knock-off unit from a Ukraine Airplane instead of the real-deal fresh from the factory without any defects or even been used in 10 planes before.

We can surely see the headline: “Museveni dies in Plane Crash: Cheap parts for the wings are the reason for the crash”. First line of the article reads: ‘Let us wait for the black box to determine outcome of preliminary results of the crash-site, which is look after by the Police and Interpol’. That would be dangerous and misgiving that the lack of oversight was the reason for the technical deficiency because of his own Presidential Handshake. That the President are his own worst enemy, the sole reason and sole candidate for the lacking funds to his own airplane. Sounds like a bad movie, but still very real.

President Museveni has a Presidential Jet that lacks funds, that lacks maintenance and needs new fresh funds. Certainly all he needs is a Presidential Handshake! Peace.

Mzee defends his “Presidential Handshake”

m7

“Do not malign the good people. You know i will defend them because I am the one who gave them the money. You are abusing them, I do not want to hear that anymore.” – President Yoweri Museveni (Daily Monitor, 19.01.2017)

We know by now that you are corrupt and keep your cronies satisfied with crony capitalism and loyal services rendered through paychecks instead of good governance and accountability. Since that has not mattered since 1986. What matters is loyalty to you first and then the knowledge that. That pays off!

They could be similar to Mother Theresa, Jesus and all the other good people, but it is the principal that they get a payout for serving their nation and their republic. That because the Republic won a case against a Petroleum and Oil Drilling Company, which justify the means of transactions to various accounts of different civil servants and leaders in government institutions. It is not abusing them; it is questioning the reason for the increased salary as an effort of awarding without practical procedure. That is what counts Mr. President.

I know it is a hard concept for you to grasp as you see the public coffers and taxes as free fund to salvage as much wealth as possible while you are breathing and leave behind as much property for the next generation of the clan of Museveni to live happily until oblivion. Therefore, a few extra shillings is a small bargain in the end.

I understand why you do not want to hear more about it, it makes you look like a fool. As a fool who allocated funds without proper procedure and spent unwise tax-money that in effect. It seems like a chaotic situation, where you are orders a cash-bonanza. A cash bonanza of free government funds ending up in the pockets of loyal cronies. These funds could been used on government institutions or payed ordinary civil servants salaries. Instead, they are inappropriately gave away to the fellow loyalist in disregard of the public. So I understand why you don’t want hear about that anymore, just like you are happy that people have forgotten about CHOGM monies and other sagas of theft from your administration. Because there are enough tales of maladministration and corrupt behaviour when your been in-charge of steering the wheels. It is well-known and common practice. What was not known before this was that the knowledge of “Presidential Handshake” as a common thing? Certainly, what was we could not know was that you sanctioned these handshakes and gave them away as a rewarding system to keep men and woman loyal to you?

So now matter who you gave this money too. The issue is not the people who got the money. They are “innocent” to a certain degree, but your act of doling the monies away with no regard of the citizens. That is the insulting part of your handshake. That the people have so little value compared to your highly paid elite. If you cannot see that issue, you cannot see anything, because that blinds your efforts and acts of accountability. Which is not something you have flexed since coming into power in the 1980s. Accountability and Transparency is two things you hate… we know it and so do you know very well. Peace.

Statement on by H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta on the Tribunal to Investigate the Conduct of Justice Phillip Tunoi (24.02.2016)

Kenya Tunoi 05022016

After further consultation and review of the relevant provisions of the Constitution, and given the strict timelines for the setting up of a Tribunal for the investigation of a Judge, I have today suspended Justice Philip K. Tunoi, as a judge of the Supreme Court, with immediate effect, and appointed a Tribunal to investigate his conduct.
I have made this decision, despite my concerns regarding the pending matters before the Court of Appeal, as to the correct age of retirement for Judges who served under the previous constitutional dispensation. I believe that my concerns may now be addressed by the Tribunal itself, which may independently consider the merit, if any, of such concerns, should it be raised before it.

I reiterate my commitment and fidelity to the Constitution of Kenya, and confirm that I will continue to uphold and defend it, as I have from the first day I took oath of office as President. Nothing less should ever be expected from me and the office I hold in trust of Kenyans.

I hereby appoint the following to be the members of the said Tribunal:

  1. Justice Sharad Rao – Chairman
  2. Roselyne Korir
  3. Justice (retired)Jonathan Bowen Havelock
  4. Judith Abrahams Guserwa
  5. James Kaberere Gacoka
  6. Abdirashid Abdullahi Hussein
  7. George Munji Wakukha
