Mzee’s story has changed on the Arua By-Election

It is very simple, that President Museveni and his team of spin-doctors cannot keep their tongues straight. Today, we have caught the President in a little lie. It cannot be true. In 2018, the President claimed the helicopter was used to save people in the midst of fracas and violence happening after the Arua By-Election in August 2018. However, today he said it was used to capture the “ring-leaders”. That is very simple lie to catch someone in.

When a leader can lie about the usage of helicopter. Why aren’t there more lies in his texts? The window was destroyed with perfection. The whole Arua By-Election was state sponsored violence and torture of civilians. Usage of military soldiers to arrest, abduct, torture and harm opposition leaders. That is what is visible after the post Arua By-Election.

The two stories told by the same man… shows that he uses it for political propaganda fitting to his paradigm at any given day. There is no need for truths, because why change the story? Why is it international interference in a by-election in 2020, but not mentioned in 2018? Why is the people so important in 2018, but invisible in 2020? That’s because the vilification of Bobi Wine is more important in 2020, then it was in 2018.

Just look at these passages from two “informative” texts in the different years.

In 2018:

If the Army had not intervened in Arua, a lot of people would have been killed by this Bobi Wine group. They had gathered stones, knives and there were reports of even guns. Why is it that we have never heard of any incident where the NRM supporters have ever attacked the Opposition supporters? Do you remember how the Bobi Wines were attacking the other MPs in Parliament? Are we to allow them to attack the Wanainchi in similar ways? How about assaulting soldiers or policemen? Do you remember the policeman, Ariong, who died from a stone throw? The security forces should be commended for saving mass deaths in spite of the fact that many of them were not equipped for anti-riot” (…) “His mistake may be to organize and participate in such a violent procession and to import illegal voters. The court will decide according to the evidence. Stop supporting impunity, stop supporting election cheating, stop supporting violence whatever side you are on. As already said above, I am investigating the circumstances of the driver of Bobi Wine who died. Five people were also reported in hospital with gun-wounds. We shall get the circumstances of those cases. In certain circumstances, the Police can use live bullets if they are not equipped with anti-riot equipment and the rioters are on the verge of killing innocent people. That is also possible. The question is: “Why do you riot? Why not use legitimate and peaceful ways of expressing your opinion?” When they stoned my car, what was the reason? If they could be so reckless to attack me, how would they spare the poor Wanainchi? Good enough, my protection force did not respond immediately. They delivered me to the helicopter and went back to rescue the Wanainchi, which they generally did in spite of the circumstances. That is why no local mwanainchi was killed by the hooligans. They did not have enough time to do the damage they intended” (Museveni, 2018).

In 2020:

Hon. Zaake has been tortured but his torturers were not punished. LDUs are punished. First of all, Zaake and a few others are a misguided group being used by some foreigners to destabilize Uganda and for many months now. You remember their actions in Parliament when they jumped on tables, tore away the microphones of Parliament, beat others. Here is the video. In Arua, they stoned my vehicle and attacked NRM supporters who were coming from my rally. They had even driven a road grader (tinga tinga) all the way from Kampala, I think, to use in ramming our vehicles (kutomera). The SFC soldiers in a disciplined way delivered me to the helicopter first and went looking for the ring-leaders – Bobi Wine, Zaake and others. Eventually, they found them in a hotel. These wonderful gentlemen tried to assault our soldiers with punches. The soldiers punched them back until they subdued them. It is very impressive that the soldiers never used guns against Bobi Wine and Zaake in the hotel rooms where they were making a fool of themselves trying to box soldiers as if they were boxing village thieves. One person died outside the hotel in mysterious circumstances. These groups have been in collusion with foreign enemies to infiltrate groups with guns to kill demonstrators and say that Government is the one killing them. We are patiently following up those. You remember the piki piki riding killers that killed Abiriga, Kirumira, Kiggundu etc.? We have defeated them and we shall unearth them” (Museveni, 2020).

The really rich thing about it all. The guns and ammunition found in the hotel of Bobi Wine was later retracted from the state as it was “evidence” pinned on the politician. There been no proof of the supposed weapons from the “assailants” on the President’s car. Neither, have there been any evidence of a gang going against the President. Instead, the proof is on the side of the state and they are no willingly to see into the state sponsored violence. While trying to make the opposition look like bad-guys.

He is using the violence happening in Parliament as defence. While not condemning the assault on MPs inside the Parliament. As he accepts the ideal of having weaponized strangers to benefit his cause in the Parliament, while dismissing the civilian lawmakers defending themselves. That proves what sort of man the President is.

The helicopter story is twisted now. That really shows that this man cannot keep his stories straight. If he did, he would have said the same, but alas he didn’t. This is why the opposition will be implicated and be the ones to blame. Even if the government and the security organization went full gung-ho and didn’t leave anyone behind.

The stoning of the car is always the pin-point and reason. But wasn’t a old person charged with it and not in association with the Arua 33? If so, why blame Zaake or Bobi Wine, when his not associated with them? That doesn’t make sense, but that doesn’t fit the mind of Bosco.

Well, enough rubbish. There should be a proper investigation into what happen. As there was to much hurt, but the Special Force Command will never get charged. These people will only get promoted and eat at the table of Mayors and the elites. Peace.

Reference:

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Facebook Post on Arua on the 20th August 2018’ (20.08.2018)

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘reply to comments made by Mityana MP Francis Zaake, where he made several distortions regarding COVID-19 and the Arua Fracas’ (27.08.2020)

Opinion: Maybe the Arua treatment should be given to Museveni…

They[court] actually wanted to punish the boys [SFC] for torturing Bobi Wine. I said no! no! no! This was rubbish. It was the other people [Bobiwine] who were in wrong. This was because the SFC people who are not police minded because they are used to doing other things, went to the room where the MP and other people were,they tried to box them so they boxed them. They acted in self defense and so it was in order” Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 21st August 2020

Sometimes I wonder if the President would have accepted the treatment his giving others. Because, if he did. He would accept being sheltered in a safe-house, being abducted, arrested and charged for no other reasons of annoying someone. Not even being a criminal. Robert Kyagulanyi was only arrested, tortured and abducted, because he offended the President and his team. They have served him injustice and his defending it.

For someone dropping bible-verse, saying he was supposed to be a preacher. The President should know a passage from the book of Matthews. He clearly need a fresh reminder. Because, what happened in Arua and in the aftermath. Is something that shouldn’t have happened to the Arua 33 and Bobi Wine. However, he said yesterday it was fine and dandy. That shows that the grand lecturer is cruel human being who wants people ill and not saint like he proclaims to be.

Just look what the words of the scripture says:

Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets” – Matthew 7,9-12 (New International Version).

Because, when I read the defence of the torture, impunity and cruel arrests of the opposition in the post Arua By-Election. Then you know, that the President has no hear, just like Beti Kamya stated years ago.

We are seeing what Jesus is saying to his disciples in the book of Matthew. It states that you should do unto others as you wish to be treated yourself. In this regard, does the President wants to be abducted, tortured and charged with treason for campaigning in a By-Election. That is what I get from the President.

I don’t want the President to get the treatment Bobi Wine got after Arua. I don’t want a single person to get that. However, if we are learning anything from the scriptures, then he wouldn’t have defended it. It shows a sinister side of the President and his allies. That they will defend it and stand by the torturing of a fellow human being.

So, the President wants to offer someone stones instead of the bread his asking for. He rather give a snake, instead of a fish.

Museveni, would you accept that the Special Force Command would storm one of your homes, raid it and abduct you. Family members, lawyers and such not knowing about your location for hours. Also, tortured and injected with poison by the law enforcement before charged with treason for being part of a by-election. Is that cool to you? Would you accept that?

I’m thinking, you as a man wouldn’t accept this. You would scream “hell no” and move on. Still, a a man you accept the fate of others. As a President you should condemn and charge men who does this to others. Alas, we know you promote those … Peace.

Opinion: Whose not annoying and ridiculing President Museveni at this point?

24. Penalty for acts intended to alarm, annoy or ridicule the President:

Any person who, with intent to alarm or annoy or ridicule the President— (c) assaults or wrongfully restrains the person of the President, commits an offence and is liable to imprisonment for life” (Penal Code, 15th June 1950).

We know they fought, we know they won and the rest is history. The 1986ers are running the Republic and doesn’t care if their revolution is eating and killing its kids. They just don’t care, everyone is charged with phony charges, taken by the courts in premeditated statutes and usage of colonial laws to pin them as criminals for standing up against the President and his patronage. They own the land, the rest is the peasants, whose lucky enough to live on rented time on the soil of the Republic.

Today, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is charged with annoying, ridiculing and blocking the road in Arua, as the President was passing with his convoy. The other Arua 37 was charged with this too. This is not new, because anyone can be charged with it these days. These people are still facing treason charges from the same Post Arua By-Election, so what the state put these additional charges on them.

There takes nothing to insult the President, if your Joseph Kabuleta writing about Project Muhoozi. If Bobi Wine tries to use his popularity to win By-Elections, which is demeaning to the almighty President, whose supposed to be the most loved person ever to grace the planet earth. You get charged with cyber harassment, if you just write a poem about you, this is the fate of Dr. Stella Nyanzi. Whose now under more trouble for demonstrating in the midst of sentencing on the last Friday.

So, we know that people are annoying, bugging and has to be charged for doing so. Even if the President says no-one is arrested for annoying him. Apparently, plenty are and in legal jeopardy. If you just spit in the wrong pit, they will charge you for it. However, in this regard, the citizen can just be in wrong place, at the wrong time and the state will capture you. That is what the state is doing.

The state and the authorities are using the Penal Code, Public Order Management Act and Computer Misuse Act to take people away for any reason from her until the sun. There is nothing the state cannot pin on its dissidents. They will create mirages, they will fix the codes and pin it on someone who happens to be the opposition to the regime. This is what they do.

At this moment, anyone can be charged with annoying the President. If you write a poem, if you drive on the wrong road, if you don’t take his biscuits as he doles it out through his aide, or dare to speak ill of him in public.

This shows the foolishness of the state, as they think they are bloody brilliant. The charges are forged, manufactured and if a serious court would look at it. They would dismiss it, because there is no case. If the state was serious, the Treason case against Bobi Wine and the Arua 33 wouldn’t last this long, but these bastards doesn’t care. They have not produced any evidence or affidavit to prove it. Even if their lives depends on it. Because, they know its just playing and misusing the time of the ones charges. So, that Bobi Wine and the rest have less time politicking. That is what the state does.

That is why everyone is annoying the President and he just have to pin something on them. Peace.

Museveni’s Legacy: Using colonial law to supress dissidents!

This is not the first time nor the last, when the National Resistance Movement (NRM) will use the legal means to supress or oppress certain dissident or individuals who oppose his regime. The NRM and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, claims to be a freedom fighter, but he enjoys the perks of colonial laws and has not abolished them like the Age Limit. No, his authorities are frequently using it, whenever they deem it fit.

Now, instead of charging the Opposition MPs and the Arua 33 with treason, illegal firearms or throwing the Arua Stone. The results are out and the verdict in the open. The NRM and the Courts are using the 1950 law of Penal Code article 24 (c.), which states:

“24.    Penalty for acts intended to alarm, annoy or ridicule the President:

Any person who, with intent to alarm or annoy or ridicule the President— (c) assaults or wrongfully restrains the person of the President, commits an offence and is liable to imprisonment for life” (Penal Code, 15th June 1950).

Surely, the convoy of Opposition should trade the waters carefully when the President arrives on the scene. Anything can be disobedient or seen as a mockery. Especially if you bend your hat wrong or tries to stutter like the President does.

Now, everyone who was in the near proximity and is associated with the Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is charged with this. That is what the state of affairs. By all means, who wouldn’t ridicule a President of 33 years? We are not Dr. Stella Nyanzi, but who doesn’t find easy ways to mock or annoy a man of advance age, who still thinks he has the rights to lecture every single subject?

Pardon me, right?

Well, at this mere junction. This is the foolishness of the state, trying to pin any sort of code, violation or charge on the ones they don’t seem fit. At this very moment, Bobi Wine cannot expect a welcoming parade when entering the Republic. Neither should Francis Zaake. They are both awaiting a hostile return. As the state configures new methods of silencing them.

They have dropped plenty of charges already, but will add new ones to ensure; that this people will revisit the courts and answer for their “crimes”. That is just what the state does and has operated with during the recent years. They have done this with several others and now it’s the People Power Movement and their associates to go through the wind and fire of the state system.

If President Museveni wanted another legacy, he wouldn’t have used the same tricks as the Colonial administration, but apparently, he does. He did it with Kizza Besigye, Erias Lukwago and plenty of other fellows, who stood in his way. That is why civilians have been before the Military Court Martial at Makindye Barracks, and not in civilian courts. That is just the man that the President is and is proud of being.

He calls himself a freedom fighter, but in general, as a General, he takes away people’s freedom. Kudos for that. Peace.

State Oppression Continues: The Arua Stone Case continues to haunt Opposition MPs!

Today, the 4th July 2019, the day where again several of Opposition Members of Parliament was summoned to Gulu Magistrate Court to follow up on the treason case going from the 13th August 2018. The prolonged case and lack of discovery, combined with very little movement of authorities, other than making new court dates. Has surely let them believe that this case is dead on arrival. Especially since the state has charged an advanced age man last month for throwing the Arua Stone.

Therefore, today’s news of a judge actually ordering the arrests of the Opposition MPs, whose some are even abroad in a Conference. Shows, the issues of the state and their monitoring of their own. As they should know about their movements and know why didn’t show today. Also, others suffered mechanical challenges, which should have given way too. Alas, that wasn’t the case.

Take a look:

Gulu Magistrate Court presided by Grade One Magistrate Kintu Isaac Imuran, has issued criminal summons to 10 accused persons who failed to appear in court today. These included MPs Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine Zaake Francis, Gerald Karuhanga, Paul Mwiru, Abola Jane, John Mary Ssebuwufu and others. Defense lawyer, Tony Kitara informed court that both Bobi wine and Zaake were attending a conference in United States while others suffered vehicle mechanical challenges while coming to court” (87.7 Baba FM, 04.07.2019).

This is the same-old, same old. If these people only had bribed the Republic like Dott Service or been connected like the ones ordering the Santana Cars back-in-the-day, they wouldn’t have had any issues. Not even if these people had suction like the ones inside in the Bank of Uganda. Than, would have gotten away with murder. Alas, these people are opposition. They cannot do anything wrong. Then, they will be punished.

Even if the state doesn’t have a case, they are just pursuing empty leads. Just like it did on Gen. David Sejusa aides, who was freed recently after years in the pen. The same is happening here, the state is making a case, not a solid one, wasting time and trying to dodge this people from campaigning or even having a political life. That is why the case is running, months on months end.

There is no sentencing, there is no proof or evidence brought to court. There is no affidavit or even witnesses coming forward, which would be evident of a prolonged case for these suspect. Alas, the state has just built another case against individuals it cannot stomach. This is an ancient tactic in the Republic.

Just like others has answered for years, nearly a decade on old cases in towns all across the Republic. Bobi Wine and associates will do too. That is because they defied the King, the mighty mighty President. Peace.

The man behind the Arua Stone is charged, but why not drop charges against “Arua 33” and MPs?

The 13th August 2018 are haunting the people who was part of the Arua By-Election. The Members of Parliament, the Arua 33 and the ones who was part of the opposition team beating the National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate there.

There been plenty of charges, gathering of evidence, even arms and bullets discharged. Still, there been no case, no profile and no verdict on the People Power MPs nor their supporters. An almighty and powerful Arua Stone attacked the Presidential Convoy, which have never surfaced, while no one has to answer for the driver of Bobi Wine death. Until today, someone has to answer for the stones hitting the convoy, but the others are still in legal jeopardy.

This is 311 days, 10 months and 7 days. NBS Television reports: “A 70-year-old man has been arrested in Arua for allegedly stoning President Museveni’s car and smashing its rear door glass on 13th August 2018. Omar Risasi was summoned on Tuesday to make a statement and later detained” (NBS Television, 20.06.2019).

This should mean that the charges against the Kyadondo MP Robert Kyagulanyi, Francis Zaake MP and others should be dropped, since the authorities have found an culprit. Which isn’t any of the high profile or any of the Arua 33.

Since, the charges against the ones are still viable, the pending trail is still on-going and the evidence collected against them are still in Arua. Therefore, the UPF and the authorities are still acting as the Opposition are the ones behind it. Even if they have now a new suspect and even detained a whole different person for the crimes against the President. We are now also seeing that the destruction of a luggage car of the President is more valuable, than the life of an citizen, the driver who got killed during the same day. Which still isn’t investigated or even cared for, his life is without value in the sense of the authorities.

Even with all of this, we are learning the values of this government. AS they are persisting to assault the freedoms of people, take people for granted and not dropping charges, even as the discovery and finding evidence doesn’t pull way against the ones the state wants to indict. The NRM and the government are looking foolish, just like the stories about that window.

Seems like they just found a character they could depose and suspect after ten months, instead of actually trying to find the ones breaking the glass. Because, the windows of that Presidential Car was broken perfectly without any damage of the paint, nor any significant damage on the rest of the car. Like the tinted metal could manage everything, while the window could just give way.

This seems like a fishy move, but if it was believable, the state would have dropped charges against the Arua 33 and the MPs in question. Alas, they are not doing that, so the political motivated investigation and charges are still alive and living colour. Peace.

Opinion: Do you want to drive Tax-Free on the Toll-Road? Dip through as part of the Presidential Convoy!

“The House has passed a clause in the Road Bill, 2018 that provides for paying of road tolls. The clause provides exemption to presidential convoy, emergency vehicles like ambulances, fire engines and military, police and other security vehicles on emergency duty” (Parliament of Uganda, 14.05.2019).

Well, if you find it expensive or outrages the new toll-roads built by the government. Where the public have to pay down debts as toll to pass. Then, you have one way to get rid of that problem; this is all thanks to the gentleman and nobles at the Parliament. Yesterday, they put a clause, an exemption for the Presidential Convoy. So that the convoy doesn’t need to pay to pass on these roads.

This is opening new possibilities. So, if your driving on the Entebbe Expressway. If you have the time. Just wait until the President and his people is riding pass. So, that you can join the convoy, because who knows whose part of it or not. Especially, if you have a tinted SUV or a White/Black Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. You are set for life on this place. You might never have to pay again. Because your naturally part of the Presidential Convoy. Its all magic baby.

That is the gift of the Republic, where his majesty, His Excellency, the Fountain of Honour is blessing his peasants and servants, as they should oblige and follow suit. This meaning, every time they pass by the Convoy. They should dip through traffic and pass into it. Because, no one really knows whose a part of it or not. Except for the snipers, the luggage-cars and whatnot the President needs at all time. Also, a few of his advisors, as he has over a 100 of them to pick off at any moment of time.

That is why, the new way of driving cheaper is to tax into the convoy and drive through the tolls, as that is the way of exemption. Be a leech and a smart pawn. A person who is ruthless and has the ability to blend into the long line of cars, which is all supported by several of police cars, mambas, Special Force Command and an unlucky cousin. So, in that mix, a fellow random gentleman should pass by too. In such a manner, that he also escapes the added tax on the toll roads. That is just fair game. Peace.

Opinion: Joint Candidates for the Opposition is a sign a weakness towards Bosco!

Do the Opposition want to look viable?

Does the Opposition leaders want to look serious?

Are they concerned about their credibility before the electorate?

That is what they should ask themselves, as the new IPOD leader and Democratic Party President Norbert Mao is calling out to all Opposition parties to go in for joint candidates for the General Election in 2021. However, that is a false flag, it is weakening the base of the Opposition, instead of strengthening them.

What Mao haven’t learned from is the Inter-Party Coalition (IPC) and The Democratic Alliance (TDA), which have been used as Opposition coalitions to try to challenge President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and the National Resistance Movement (NRM). However, they have been futile, as the state apparatus, intimidation and rigging has secured the ruling regime all the fortunes.

Therefore, Mao should know better as we’re in the 3rd Decade of the Museveni era. This is the sinister part of the times under him. Where the gloves are off and he uses all methods to stay in power. There are nothing he doesn’t touch and tries to manipulate in his favour. That is why, Mao and the rest of Opposition should work together, but not in a way, where they are betting on one ticket.

It is easy to see, that the NRM will get the majority, will get the Presidency and get the crown jewels of the Republic. That is what the NRM does and everyone should know this. Therefore, why risk it all on one ticket and one flag-bearer?

This is really not salvaging anything, but trading away what you have. In a system built for Museveni and his kind. Even if it is so, the Opposition shouldn’t give up and throw in their candidates. If the Opposition are only fielding on MP in every district, a Mayoral Flag-Bearer and whatever else role the Opposition want to aspire to get.

The Opposition should use all forces, use all parties and all manifesto’s to prove their difference from the NRM. The Opposition should field people from JEEMA, DP, UPC, FDC, ANT and whatever else existing out there. All parties should try and go up against the NRM. They got nothing to lose, only prove their point and configure their strategies both locally and also nationally. This to prove their difference and their plan, if the public want to see them fit to rule post-Museveni.

Mao doesn’t sound sincere or strong in the path to Presidency, when he doesn’t believe his own people can run as flag-bearers, but thinks he can negotiate and assemble strength by fixing one-by-one flag-bearer or candidate in every district and even Presidential Candidate. Alas, that will just weaken the possible Opposition. That is a gift-card to the President. This can silence the pressure of the People Power Movement, the ones who are still believing in Defiance against the state and all the others who want the Museveni to cease. However, that will not go down. Not even by a National ID-Drive or trying to WIN by the POLLS. That has be insignificant for 2 decades.

Therefore, the Opposition have figure out a way of getting a popular uprising and fight the oppression. Not continue to be under submission of the President and his made system.

Also, don’t show weakness, don’t be fatigued and give way to the President. He already tarmacking it and doesn’t give a rats-ass about you. That is why, the Opposition have to show character and stamina against the old man and his devious tactics.

Because, he would use that as a way of saying the Opposition stands for very little or have lack of principals. Since they can all work together and only seeking meal-tickets. Not that is not throwing stones in a glass-house, as his cronies are all seeking for their meal-tickets. But, the Opposition should look smarter and look like they actually want to govern with good governance and sincerely develop the Republic. Not only eat the plate of the state and see the schools fall-apart a little bit more, or more hospital without medicine or electricity. Because, that is what the state is offering the citizens at the moment. Also some added OTT Tax and using MTN Licenses to pay for Airplanes. That is how life goes on in the Republic.

Therefore, the Opposition has to look different, sound different and not look defeated. That doesn’t mean they cannot stand together in the fight against Museveni. But its the way they do it. Because they have tried the IPC and TDA without any results. So, for the L-O-V-E of God, prove your value and your mandate for the public. Let them see your true character. So, they can see the difference between you and the hungry looters who are residing their currently. Peace.

Opinion: A staged opposition in-fighting is a automatic victory for Bosco!

Yesterday’s unneeded drama and heckling outside of CBS Radio Station as Dr. Kizza Besigye left the station. It was speculated that the ones doing this was associated with the People Power Movement and Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. However, he has disassociated and said that isn’t the way.

We have to reconfigure something, as the radical people will always surface in any bracket of the public. In any part of a party and in a movement. That is a natural feature within any party and for all sorts of reasons. That is why we get days like yesterday. This is not a vindication of Mwenda’s attacks on the Bobi Wine and Defiance Campaign of Besigye. No, it is just a reality check, because, it matters everywhere. The majority isn’t like that, but a selected few.

What we do know now, is that these who went there yesterday might be staged or hired to do so. They were not directly ordered or behind it, as it has been speculated that a James Mubiru is behind it. Which hired people to carry on with the slogans of Bobi Wine and his movement, while heckling and addressing Besigye yesterday. This is then not an direct attack of Bobi Wine or his people, but instead a hired man, whose using money to get people to create a staged fuzz.

Therefore, the disassociation of Bobi Wine makes sense, but as it is staged. It is important that this is supposed to make these two look like enemies in the public perception. Even though that is far from true, as these two has been close and also talked on various occasions. Both Opposition leaders are working for the same cause. However, for the NRM to look strong, the Opposition needs to be infighting and needs to weakening itself. Because, then the NRM is the only viable avenue, even when the side-roads are better. Since, it looks hectic and filled with blockades, instead of a straight road to redemption.

That is what is up. That the NRM and the President is having a quick victory if the People Power and FDC is fighting. If Besigye and Bobi Wine is fighting too. If the NRM gets the DP, UPC, JEEMA, FDC and People Power all against each other. Than, the NRM will easily win. Not that they need it peaceful and friendly atmosphere. Because, the NRM will rig the up-coming elections.

Still, for the public perception sake, the NRM needs the infighting and the bickering, where the Opposition seems more fragmented than it is. Then the President can proclaim that he is only viable way out and the Opposition is just mess. That he is the only saviour and the NRM only has the solutions, because the Opposition is making havoc, even without power. This is the ambition of this sort of play.

Not that the Opposition needs a new The Democratic Alliance (TDA) or an Inter-Party Coalition (IPC), but an cohesive strategy to show progress and ability to be significant better; than what is currently ruling the Republic. That doesn’t mean that they should follow the DP idea of challenging the NRM with Joint Candidates. With that the Opposition is not showing strength, but creating a two-party system. Because, they lack faith in their own candidates and want to ensure less costs for a possible victory.

Instead, the Opposition should field all candidates and prove their value to the voters. Even if that fragment the votes. Because, that is natural, but at the same time work together with common goals, as they are all supposed to want to show supremacy and better political platform than NRM. That should make sense.

That is why we need to see Bobi Wine and Besigye working together in a cohesive and in a manner, where the public trust their agenda. Where the public perception is positive and where they are showing progressive means to further their work. They don’t need bickering and in-fighting. That is something the NRM can do themselves, as they usually does in their Primaries. We can just await the chaos coming up in the Road to General Elections of 2021.

That is why they stage this sort of operations. To make the Opposition look bad. Make someone a victim and blame someone else. Even if it is a ploy to play the public. They might think they are able to succeed, but when you look through it all. Then you see why and know the agenda. That is why you know it is deliberate by the regime to make a fool of the opposition. Instead, they are looking like Tin-Soldiers on the streets.

What we are seeing is more of the power of Besigye and Bobi Wine, their supporters and their vision. Instead of making them look foolish, which was the goal. Peace.

Apparently, the Katikkiro snubbed Museveni!

Rumors are ripe that am going to be appointed VP; that that’s the reason Pres M7 was hosted by Kabaka Mutebi at Banda Palace so the President might brief the King. I am not the next VP. Iam carrying out my duties as entrusted to me by the Kabaka. I don’t do under table deals. CPM” (Charles Peter Mayiga, 11.02.2019).

Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga has shown finesse and also strength. There been speculations in what was happening within the meeting between Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. The meeting was held this 5th February 2019, it is seen as event , that is happening because of the upcoming General Election in 2021. As the President wants to ensure all his allies are with him and that powerful ones on his side. This is typical him, as he offers money, pledge land-back and whatever else. As it is a trade for loyalty.

Therefore, there are known of some financial implications of the meetings, as the grievances of the theft of Kingdom’s land and other aspects. Has made the President work hasty, as he wants to settle it and look good in the eyes of the Kingdom. Yoweri wants Ronald to not be a voice or renegade against him. Since, he is one who gotten his place back because of him and also his lost titles. If not compensation of the lost land titles. That is if, the NRM and the Ministry of Finance can find the funds to do so.

Whatever this shows is the way that the government manoeuvrer in the time before an election. Try to reign in all, to get all the ducks in a row and make the roads shine. In the meantime, the President can let everything go and eat. While right before an election, he needs to show effort and let other get some scraps too.

What has been special is the rumours and promise of giving the Buganda Prime Minister or Katikkiro Mayiga the role as Vice-President beneath himself. That the President might appoint him, as a token of loyalty to the Kingdom, as the special place it has in the Republic.

If the Katikkiro would get this role, he would be sort of like King Freddie, who was President between October 9, 1962 to March 2, 1966. By all means, King Freddie had actual power in his office as President and King. While, the Katikkiro would be a noble-men, with a high-office, but we all know. That Vice-President Edward Ssekandi is an important as a grape-fruit. He is a nice trophy, but not something you take utter seriously or of vast importance. There are usually more swagger in the Prime Ministers, that the President has appointed. Therefore, the Katikkiro would be a big-man with a office, but not doing anything profound. Because, when did Ssekandi do something magnificent or revolutionary, did something or said something that was worth damn? Well, that never happen. The same would be the role of the Katikkiro.

Katikkiro would play second fiddle and be one of the cronies within the administration of Museveni. He would be nothing else. So, if this was offered to him, it would have been done to show loyalty to the Kingdom and the King. As his men would be directly in the sphere of power. As the President needs the support of this, as the President knows the growing dissidents within the Kingdom against him. The opposition and the ones behind Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine are from this. Therefore, it would been a smart move of the President. He is conning enough to do this.

What we can take from this, that the Kabaka has a loyal servant, who he has appointed and the President got snubbed. Peace.
