“FDC Announces Peaceful Demonstration” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)
Don Museveni and his loyal capos, his underbosses and his Crime Preventers filled the Kololo Independence Grounds, with the quality of voter tourism and the staged affairs. With a 140 cakes with the giant Yellow Bus; as a proof of the ushering in the NRM Bus Company and it’s Steady Progress. “The total cost is 30 million and the who gross cost at Kololo is 2.2 billions” (Breaking News Uganda, 09.04.2016). The 30 million is the value of the 140 cakes, the rest of the NRM celebration at Kololo independence grounds! “Today’s NRM election victory party at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds cost Shs 1.5 billion according to the party’s Secretary General Kasule Lumumba” (The Observer, 09.04.2016). No matter if it 2,2 Billion or the 1,5 billion on a victory celebration. That is just too much and waste of government funds while the State House and Defense Ministry needed grand amounts of shillings for the event.
People from Kampala is not attending the Celebration as the villagers are ferried in, just as the NRM Bus Company is famous for, even when they offer money and food for the attendance at the Celebration of the Election Victory. For Boda-Boda and Taxis they are offering free fuel for the ones who are driving people the Kololo.
They have even used government school buses to get people to come to Kololo like this, the Kigezi High School bus have been used to get people there.
The NRM is celebrating winning the election and the Supreme Court verdict, still the way they did it should be celebrated as they have controlled the whole election and celebrating that is just pissing on the democratic values and the truth accountability for justice for the ordinary Ugandans, and instead they are all now respecting Don Museveni.
Jose Chameleone is having yet another concert for the Don and proving his loyalty to him and the crowds before the Don arrives on stage to say that he deserved 80% of the votes and that the country should have been better sanitized for the message of the movement. The values of the racket and that he is alone the kingpin of the country.
What the NRM Party said this:
“A very beautiful morning to you all. We thank you for voting and supporting NRM in the just concluded elections. Join us today and be part of the national celebration for the victory of our candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds. Lets celebrate together.. The victory is ours”. (NRM, 09.04.2016).
The NRM enjoys celebrating themselves and their ability to use their buses to get people to listen to their paid entertainers and the Don Museveni. So the NRM finish the General Election the same way they started. Ferrying Voter Tourists to the Kololo Independence Grounds as they also did in November 2015. Peace.
Dr. Kizza Besigye Statement after midnight at Kasangati:
“IGP Kayihura once again deceived Ugandans today that I’d been freed. It was fools day anyway!!! I took the pictures here after midnight- on 2nd April 2016. It terrible to have a leader of a police force that breaks the law routinely and willfully; that seems to enjoy telling lies; and that has no regard for the opinion of others!”
And here his last released picture to the Public from Kasangati:
FDC Statement on it earlier in the day on the 1st of April 2016:
“What was an open secret that Mr. kale Kayihura had instructed his policemen to move away from Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home has now turned into a fat lie, the Uganda Police Force has actually multiplied in number”.
My take on it:
IGP Kale Kayihura of the Ugandan Police Force might have had the ability to fool some people. But the pictures and the manifestation of the Police Officer talking in the phone while monitoring Dr. Kizza Besigey should be send a clear message, while they talked about the leaving the premises of Besigye’s gate and compound; they still have the metal-teeth and the Police Officers squatting in reach of the gate and still having the ability to check-in everybody who enters and leaves his home. So Practically the House Arrest never stopped and the illegal detention and unlawful detaining of the FDC Presidential Candidate and the man who never had the ability to really content the result of the February 2016 Presidential Elections have been sufficed to his own gates and home without being the ordinary man who can walk to work or even go out to buy his food. This has been going for over 40 days, since straight before the Election Day on the 18th February. So you know that the Police Force is still besieging the Compound at Kasangati.
Truly and clearly the IGP Kayihura lied and tried to deceive so that his master and the Government could work in Peace and hopefully without issues from the outside world; as even the U.S. Mission talked about progressing toward democratic elections in recent statement. I am paraphrasing the U.S. Mission, but that is in general what the army ally wrote as the Post-Election Period is going away and “ordinary” State of Affairs resumes before the swearing-in and the 10th Parliament sessions starts. As paraphrasing is not good enough here is actually the main quote in my opinon from the United States Embassy that is worth noticing.
Here what the U.S. Mission in Kampala says in their Statement to the Public:
“The U.S. Embassy notes today’s Supreme Court ruling affirming the results of Uganda’s February 18 presidential vote that saw President Yoweri Museveni re-elected to his fifth term. We encourage all Ugandans to respect the Court’s decision, and express their views in a peaceful manner” (U.S. Embassy of Kampala, 31.03.2016).
Certainly one thing is clear. The House Arrest of Dr. Kizza Besigye never happen and the orders from above would not let that happen, as he is the epitome of everything President Museveni is not, a legitimate leader compared to Executive; who have to House Arrest his main opponents. Peace.
“NRM supporters in Mukono celebrated President Museveni’s victory in the Amama Mbabazi petition which was dismissed today by the Supreme Court “(NBS TV Uganda, 2016).
Today there was the Supreme Court ruling that dissmisal of the Election Petition number one, and therefore there was all of a sudden a giant celebration, so big that we can forget the Nomination Day in Kampala; when Dr. Kizza Besigye was sitting on the chair between Central Kampala to the Stadium where he had the first rally of the pre-election period and Presidential Campaign. Here is two pictures show’s the” massive” grand celebration for the NRM and the President Museveni re-election in Kampala!
How the NRM got the crowd today:
“The National Resistance Movement – NRM hired boda boda riders and skate boys to hold stage-managed celebrations in Kampala, amid heavy police deployment. The public ignored them, which is a huge political statement indicating the unpopularity of President Museveni’s electoral and court victory among Ugandans”.
Somewhere sits Dr. Kizza Besigye, wait, he sits in house-arrest in Kasangati and laughs at the meager display from the NRM-Regime. He should have a laugh at this, because this proves his rhetoric and arguments earlier today. Peace.
“Besigye reacted to the dismissal of Mbabazi’s petition saying he has been under house arrest since election day and was not able to file his petition” (NTV Uganda, 2016)
