As President Museveni have the Inauguration for his 7th Term tomorrow; he has done this: “Ugandan Citizens are living in a situation where the injustice and incarceration of democracy is happing as we speak”; So I don’t care who shows up at Kololo tomorrow!

Kampala 11.05.2016 Military

Let me clear I don’t care who is showing up for the event and the Inauguration of President Museveni for his 7th Term as the Executive and Head of State in the Republic of Uganda. This event is not something I see as significant or worthy of taking my precious time or mind.

As the breach of ordinary justice to the citizens as the Opposition is the epitome of regime for the moment. If it was a legitimate regime and authorities had a mutual understanding and cheer between each other. Just as seen earlier in the day when Dr. Kizza Besigye drove into Central Kampala, until the Police and Army decided to disperse the people with tear-gas, beatings and other violence to shut the cheering crowds down.

Kampala 11.05.2016

The injustice from the Government of Uganda to make tomorrow look perfect is into the insane, with the heavy deployment of Anti-Riot Police, Army Personnel and other security arrangements. Could think it was occupation of the capital city, not an inauguration of the newly elected President. Just as recently the Army had to fly a few Russian Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets to intimidate, and they flew low over the city.

The Army and the Police is the vital ingredient in the President Museveni dogma of leadership. He only knows violence and aggression, not really dialogue or accords. That is why the Nairobi Talks of 1980s faltered and we’re a farce of an extension towards goodwill between then friends and foes. Something that has failed, as much as the Inter-Burundian Dialogue, because President Nkurunziza want to do the same as President Museveni, he wants all power in his hands and take away the ones the opposition have or want to have. And with that admission there can’t be discussion or relief of power towards a unity of some kind.

Airtel 11.05.2016

But, let me clear way, as the Uganda and the Republic of Uganda is making way for yet another Inauguration Ceremony. In the time before the VPN business is the high-rising one as the Uganda Communication Commission is silencing the Social Media Platform, while the Army and Police silence the Opposition and detain the ones who might create fuzz in the country. President Museveni wants it done in cheer and joy with silence from the men who are not in line. Therefore have the Forum for Democratic Change been illegal and the Police Force have gone after them like they are serious killers and terrorist, even charging them with treason and terrorism charges. I am not kidding fellow activists in Rukungiri got charged with Terrorism! Fellow FDC staff that used the printer at Najjankumbi are charged with treason. This is happening during the last few days.

Jim Muhwezi Press Conference 05052016

So the Social Media Ban is the last piece of destruction of freedom, liberty and so on. As Ministry for Information and National Guidance Rtd. Maj. Hon. Jim Muhwezi and Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura have said that all coverage of “Defiance” and the Forum for Democratic Change is illegal and the media houses who does so can get their broadcaster or licence revoked. So the Freedom of speech is already in a thin thread as the Media are to follow the order of the President Museveni and write about the Health Care and other issues, not write about the Crack-Down on the Opposition.

The same happen on Election Day as youth connected to the FDC was even then arrested together with the leadership. Dr. Kizza Besigye have close to 50 days in house-arrest in 2016 alone, and then we don’t count the amount of times he has spent his lunch at Kiira Road Police Post, Nagalama Police Station, Kasangati Police Station or any other Police Station that the Police Officer have detained him at. Together with close leadership of the FDC who has nearly all of them at one point been behind bars or waited for hours while the Police have gone to pick-up more activist that are connected with the Party.

Kasangati 09.05.2016

The freedom of expression, the freedom of movement, the liberty to decide and to control the people, while the hospital are depleting and empty of medicines, if they have they will be sold like the Yellow Fever Vaccine in Kampala, that we’re supported to be given for free. Still this is typical levels of ignorance from the government that doesn’t deliver the needed treatment and the famous Carol, is put her treatment on hold even when she has been able to get needed cash for treatment abroad. The other is the schools where even President Museveni with pledges of free schoolbooks and geometry sets to Primary School students. Some promises and pledges that have already been given up as the government doesn’t have funds for that; as the State House coffers where empty and needed new fiscal funds after the campaigns. Something the Ugandans know and the monies went to the Buses, Bribes and T-shirts. Not to needed pledges or ordinary transparent government procedures and procurement, but that is not important under NRM as the word of President Museveni is the ones that matter.

So the Army deployment today, the Police Force that are on every corner, that the Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) that rides on the street while the M23 and other security organizations have stifled and silenced the population who was cheering for Besigye when he passed the central parts of Kampala. This is the ordinary as the deployment is done to make the perfect scenario as the citizens are not for the President and he has overstayed his time. The wish for change is there.

Vincent Kaggwa 2107Pic1

The fear and the weapons are the only thing he has, he can afford to pay a NRM Elite and get them in line as the army and Police arrest even their own and former close network of the NRM. This is say because Vincent Kaggwa of NRM Poor Youth has been arrested today.

No matter what words President Museveni and his NRM Elite uses tomorrow and in the future, the actions against their own citizens, the actions during this General Election 2016 and the general thieving of government funds has gone too far. It is time for change and new leadership. Because using the Army and Police force, clearing the Central Kampala, rewriting the history and silencing media and own citizens is not a genuine peace.

Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

The PEACE created now is with intimidation and why certain shops are closed. Why the emptiness is the words. Why the waste of air-time and the waste of VPN. The Defiance and disobedience of the population comes because they feel violated and taken for granted. They feel that the government doesn’t represent them and at this point it doesn’t. The Members of Parliament and the selected men of National Resistance Movement represent Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, not the Republic of Uganda. That is an initial fact while the NRM regime lives in a stolen fiction, a novel of inaccuracies of nonsense.

The silence of Opposition is because they are detained, their organizations are deemed illegal and the men and woman who organize peaceful political framework are terrorised while the National Resistance Movement is proclaiming themselves in the shades of fellow mates who does not care of their will of their people and what the event of tomorrow represent. Tomorrow’s inauguration does not represent democracy or free and fair election. Tomorrow represent the stolen affair that the guests are validating for different reasons and for the friendship to Museveni, not to the Ugandan People. Some of these men and woman who are attending are doing the same to their own like President Mugabe.

VPN 18.02.2016 P2

The violations and the injustice, the impunity and the little care for general freedoms are just manifested in the Social Media Ban. The most important violations are the banning of “Defiance” and the crackdown on Forum for Democratic Change is GIANT stain on the ruling regime and their master. The Master who will in-general swear-in himself with selected men around him and with a crowd either paid or voter tourism to his dear Kololo. The nation and all institutions are infested with his dictations and the controls are in his hands for now.

President Museveni was once a “New Breed” of leader, now his the old-school kleptomaniac, totalitarian leader who uses the Police and Army to silence all open opposition, who steals government funds to expand his own wealth and the other goes to loyal cronies. As the nepotism is fierce in the institutions and the deals are around the master and his family. The transparent and procedural procurement happens on his watch, not on government procedures where established norms matters, the government is infested with leadership and waiting on orders from upon high. With that in mind, no man should have a vision other than him and the last words are his. He decides the faith and orders the arrest and detains. Because he believes he is the only one who can lead Uganda. Something he even said on the #UGDebate16 in February 2016. If you forgotten that part?

FDC Supporters Detained Kampala 17.02.2016

The incarcerations of Democratic Values are real, they are happening in Kampala and in the state of National Resistance Movement. The Social Media is the long line of freedoms, liberties and values that doesn’t matter for the President who are getting sworn-in tomorrow while his Army and Police is keeping the areas silenced and tense. Since the weapons are there and used. Shops even closed as the Police Violence happen in the streets and the footage was shocking!

I don’t really care that this other leaders are giving way to the President as they are not caring about their own people, though President Magufuli care more about Rates on the Crude Oil Pipeline than on principal in this matter, even when fellow brothers and sisters are living in a situation where the injustice and incarceration of democracy is happing as we speak.

Oil-pipeline

That the JEEMA headquarters was also raided today proves the levels of integrity as the party have nearly no following and the level of campaign was non-existing still with their planed celebration of 20 years existence tomorrow, they had to be raided by Police Force today! They just had to, to celebrate on the same day as inauguration of Museveni is a crime in the nation. If you celebrate something tomorrow keep it in silence and eat a rollex, okay?

Kampala 05052016 Arrest

The detaining, the violence and the harassment of opposition should be the worry, the social media ban is just the last piece of the puzzle, but a tiny one compared to the ones who has been going on with lightning speed since days before Election Day when the Police Force went up their Ante and took more charge on the Forum for Democratic Change as they feared the level of support and the organization that they have built up over the years. Peace.

Besigye’s Car towed by the Police in Central Kampala, today! (Youtube-Clip)

Kizza Besigye Sworn in as Ugandan President (Short Version) – (Youtube-Clip)

“President Kizza Besigye at his swearing in at the head of Uganda’s New Government on May 11, 2016” (My NewUganda, 2016).

Serious crackdown on the Opposition from the Police in Kampala as the Swearing-In Ceremony of President Museveni happens tomorrow; while the FDC continue to Counter the NRM-Regime even in the midst of Police harassment!

Kampala 11.05.2016

“There is news going around that I have passed away on social media. My relatives informed me about my death but I want to let the public know that I am ALIVE and in good health disregard those rumors. The news is that we have a President in Uganda he is HE Dr. Kizza-Besigye” – Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda

There are initial reports that the Police Force have attacked and dispersed the crowds with tear-gas and beaten them who meet around the car of Dr. Kizza Besigye as he drove around Central Kampala.

“Kampala warms up for the swearing in ceremony, students stranded in Qualicel park as tear gas rocks the street a head of Kiiza Besigye’s arrest” (Northern NewsWire, 11.05.2016).

Kampala 11.05.2016 P2

Inspector General of Police Kayihura said “cars carrying building materials and fuel tankers have been burned from from accessing the central business district until Friday”.

“More than 300 junior police officers and 217 military personnel will be deployed as part of the tactical security team for President Museveni’s swearing in ceremony due to take place this Thursday” (Primeradio Kampala, 09.05.2016).

There been deployed over 1,000 extra Police Officers in Kampala as orders of IGP Kayihura. This is reported in the Obsever.ug at the 11th May 2016. As seen also the Police are re-directing the roads as central roads around Kololo Independence Ground.

Kampala 11.05.2016 UPDF Parade

Uganda Police Defense Force (UPDF) parading along the streets of Kampala following the swearing in of the president on Thursday.

This is happening while Vincent Kaggwa of NRM Poor Youth Leader arrested from his home today. Also Michael Kabaziguruka his home is sealed off by the Military Police and is not sure how the MP-Elect will be allowed to leave his home tomorrow!

As we speak the FDC Activist in Rukungiri is still detained MP-Elect Dickson Nampumuza of Rukungiri have even gotten Court Order that was set to release him, but the local Police Force denies him that, while also the other activist in the town are still detained without court order or charge while waiting for their destiny.

Entebbe 05.04.2016 Clear cut

Some FDC Activist we’re released in Entebbe:

“Entebbe Chief Magistrate’s Court has released five Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leaders and supporters who were arrested last week by police over allegations that they had planned to participate in the party’s countrywide defiance demonstrations. Her worship, Ms Mary Kaitesi, granted the five FDC members, who included the Entebbe party chairman, Mr Alex Gitta, a cash bail of Shs200,000” (EABizInfo.com, 11.05.2016).

So today another Political Party also get to see the Police Force:

“JEEMA Headquaters raided by armed police, instructing every one to leave. Armed Police deployed at the premises”.

What the Police do to every car going to Swearing-In:

“The Regional police commander Kampala East Siraje Bakaleke reveals that they have instructed DPCs throughout the country to provide security to all vehicles that will be transporting people to kololo to attend the swearing in ceremony” (91.0 Best FM, 11.05.2016).

Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

While this is what the Police will do for the NRM tomorrow:

“Kampala Metropolitan Area East Regional Police Commander (RPC) Siraje Bakaleke says police will escort buses ferrying NRM supporters to Kololo for the inauguration” (Observer.ug, 10.05.2016).

What more the Police does to prepare Kampala for tomorrow:

“Police deployed at the Kawuku along Entebbe road diversion. Only boda bodas and government vehicles are allowed to use the Entebbe main road ahead of President Yoweri Museveni inauguration ceremony tomorrow. Motorists diverted to Ssissa village” (Daily Monitor, 11.05.2016).

Besigye Kampala 11.05.2016 P3

If you wonder about Besigye: 

Dr. Besigye after riding in Central Kampala today was arrested and is now detained at Naggalama (Nagalama) Police Station in Mukono. So the Police Force couldn’t let the man have a day in freedom. That is to much to ask, right? 

Kampala 11.05.2016 Shops closed

There will be more and Police Force cannot help themselves to cause havoc and destroy the establish factum that the Swearing-In of the Declared President is a flawed Ceremony in the lights of maladministration, electoral fraud and cranked-out crack-down Police who attacks all people who can or should speak against the NRM. Therefore the ones who has a little inch of Defiance in their body will be detained or intimidated. The ones that are not close NRM Elite will not feel freedom as the Army and the Police use their weapons and ability to arrest fellow opposition at every possible moment.

Kampala 11.05.2016 Military

So the cars and people who are Forum for Democratic Change or other Opposition members will be under fire tomorrow and the days ahead as the Police and Government wants to shut-down all activities of other Political advisories as them all should be under the President Museveni line and listen to his vision and schemes for a steady regress… Peace.

Besigye arrested after making surprise visit to downtown Kampala (Youtube-Clip)

“Dr. Kizza Besigye, the former FDC presidential candidate, has been arrested by police after drawing huge crowds in suprise visit to downtown Kampala on Wednesday morning. Prior to Besigye’s arrest, security forces were seen dispersing crowds with using and teargas. In the ensuing chaos Dr Besiye was arrested by police and reportedly driven to Nagalama Police Station in Mukono district. It is not clear how Dr Besigye made it to the city centre since he has been under preventive arrest at his home in Kasangati on grounds that he posed a threat to public order. Besigye, who has been claiming the February 2016 elections were rigged in favour of President Museveni, has repeatedly claimed he was the rightful winner of the elections. Deputy Chief Justice, Steven Kavuma had recenytly issued a court order barring FDC or any of the party’s agents against organising any procession or carrying on with the defiance campaign pending determination of a constitutional case filed by government” (NTV Uganda, 2016)

People’s President Campaigns in Kampala today! Footage from Youtube!

Here is different footage from Kampala as the FDC or the Forum for Democratic Change had campaigns in Kampala today the 10 February 2016!

Here is the first one from Lubaga Division, Nedeeba. 

Here is the seceond one from Katwe Division:

Even the Museveni Channel had a postive clip of the Campaign in Kampala: 

NTV Coverage on the Kampala rallies:

“As the presidential and parliamentary campaigns enter the home stretch, the struggle to get the blessing of opposition icon Dr. Kiiza Besigye among opposition politicians is hitting fever pitch. At Besigye’s main campaign rally in Katwe, a Kampala suburb, Makindye West parliamentary contender Allan Ssewanyana was nearly strangled as he struggled to accessing the platform where Besigye was to speak from. Besigye spent the day traversing city suburbs where he promised that an FDC government would promote all-inclusive development in Kampala and pledged better planning for the city” (NTV Uganda, 2016)

Dr. Kizza Besigye Message after the Rallies today:

“It was a busy day in Makindye and Lubaga, we are grateful for your contribution to this campaign. Thank you for the support. Many of you left your places of work and came to be part of this historical moment where Ugandans will place their power in the hands of one their own and take charge, and that leader will be accountable to all the people of Uganda. 18th February 2016 ✅ote Kizza Besigye for President of Uganda. Good night!”

Yesterday in Kasana, Luwero; Kizza Besigye said: “We want a new Uganda that will serve all Ugandans equally” (Youtube-Clip)

“Dr. Kizza Besigye addresses the people of Kasana in Luwero where he spoke about a new Uganda for all Ugandans”.

Run-up to the Mbarara Rally of the FDC today; Muntu Rally blocked by the Calvary yesterday; the Calvary set up roadblocks in Mbarara today as a preparation for the entrance of the People’s President

Road Block From UDPF 02.02.2016 Close to Mbarara

This here will not be about the rally that will happen in Mbarara and the speeches. This here is about the ride into the Mbarara Rally of the FDC. As a legitimate attention to how the Police is interfering the democratic and freedoms of a political party during pre-election times. As we see and as I discussed yesterday about the fear Ofwono Opondo spread, shows that it is the Police that creates issues, not the citizens celebrating and greeting Dr. Kizza Besigye, it is the Police that shuts down Kisoro rally for Muntu and putting up roadblocks for today’s Mbarara Rallies!

Kisoro FDC 01.02.2016 Muntu Rally Police

Mugisha Muntu’s rallies in Kisoro yesterday:
Whereas Besigye was in Rukungiri, Rt. Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu was in Kisoro covering areas that were not covered by Beesigye in Novemeber when he visited. Police attempted to block the FDC party president but people were equally so many to quickly be frightened. It ended with that the Police denied FDC s Mugisha Muntu to hold a campaign rally at Mayor’s Gardens in Kisoro municipality.

Reason why the DPC blocked the venue for Muntu:
FDC Party president was accompanying innocent one contesting for councillorship on FDC ticket in central division of Kisoro municipality. his was after the candidate had paid for the venue but was later locked out of it because they suspected Mugisha Muntu to be canvasing votes for Dr. Kizza Besigye. All efforts by Gen. Mugisha Muntu struggling with the district DPC to access the venue were futile because DPC saw the truth but later feared to lose his job. Meanwhile each Ugandan village is to receive 250,000/= to bribe people for NRM votes.

Mbarara Police 02.02.2016 FDC Campaign Convoy

Police Warning ahead of the Mbarara Rally today:
“With 15 days to the General Election, FDC’s presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye has now traversed 102 districts and has 10 more to go. As Besigye campaigns in Mbarara today, Police in Mbarara has emphasized that they will not tolerate any kid of hooliganism. Mbarara district police commander Jaffar Magyezi said those caught in acts of hooliganism will be dealt with accordingly” (91.2 Crooze FM, 02.02.2016).

FDC Police in Mbarara 02.02.0216 P2

This here was the people before the FDC rally in Mbarara. Take a look how the have made the city blue before Dr. Kizza Beisgye and the FDC Campaign Convoy starting.

FDC Police in Mbarara 02.02.0216 P3

As the Campaign Convoy was travelling:  
Mbarara police is proving to be the most notorious in western Uganda. The two pick up police following Dr.Kizza Besigye’s convoy are interfering with the convoy. Wrecklesdly driving, blocking some cars in the convoy from following Dr. Kizza Besigye… Despite efforts by KB’s security to explain why police is not allowed to move in the middle of Kizza Besigye’s convoy, police led by one Magezi remained defiant. But the Mbarara boys later showed police what they are; on the way to Kabindi on Mbarara Ibanda road, the boys stopped police and confronted police with sticks which forced police to leave the convoy.

Before Mbarara Rally FDC 02.02.2016

At the Boma Grounds an hours before the rally happening are covered with Mbarara Prison Guards guarding the place and the venue. The public have warned them for interrupting the rally desists from creating chaos. DPC of Mbarara Jaffar Magezi must have been busy ordering his men around today and yesterday.

On the road into the Mbarara town, there are a 15 kilometer long traffic jam; called the Blue FDC Campaign Convoy with Anti-Riot Police in between the FDC supporters, Dr. Kizza Besigye and all the boda-boda drivers. As the Convoy into town is coming, the Police had put into place roadblocks for them. These had to move as the public together with FDC was coming into town.

This is enough and shows the magnitude of Dr. Kizza Besigye’s momentum right now. Peace.

FDC Campaign Convoy 02.02.2016 Into Mbarara

The adventures towards the polls 18th February; how the last days might go

UGDebate2016 P6 Together

We are in time and days where the government will be questioned for all their actions and all their misbehaviour towards its citizens. Not anymore that it is some foreign NGOs who complain first, no it’s public and opposition that discuss it in viral formats online. That makes the government and its regime look weak since they can’t spin those stories.

It is truly special times in the Pearl of Africa, voter tourism will be the new word of 2016 unless Mun G or Radio & Weasel makes up a new word for catching babes in Kabalagala. Until then remember the magic word of VOTER TOURISM. If you don’t know what that is about, that is about Mzee, the ruling president of 30 years who wants to have big crowds, but not pulling them. So to get that he pays attendance, gives them food and t-shirts, pay for rental of buses and get them to the campaign venues. Just like certain corporations does with foreigners when they travel in packs to National Parks to see the wild animals, they get that while the local public get to hear the recycled pledges of the old man with the hat. And for a free t-shirt, food and transport, it might be worth it, to listen to the old man for two hours… and that ladies and gentleman is Voter Tourism. Ferrying of voters and ferrying of crowds. A beautiful industry co-owned and run by the ruling NRM Campaign machine and Mike Sebalu. He must be so proud.

Mbarara Buses 12.01.2016

Other activity that doesn’t stop during these elections times is either the blatant attack on media and journalist. Like throwing cameras, shooting them, banishing them, getting them to delete pictures and get media houses to shun campaigns or campaign trails. The NRM have been vocal against radio stations for hosting Dr. Kizza Besigye and Mbabazi have seen their issues with Radio stations. NTV has also had issues early for not showing favourable pictures from the campaign. They we’re even detained together with Daily Monitor at some point. Now the barrier has been broken and the NTV cannot follow the campaign trail of Mzee anymore. Also if Mbabazi is at a radio stations like in Karamoja he couldn’t attend the radio station, other places they have shut of the transmitter after the airing of Mbabazi. The media and journalist have had hard treatment and been costly to follow the campaign trail, with the ones being in the middle of melee like the journalist covering the first planned campaign rally for Erias Lukwago in Kampala was actually shot, but not killed. There been violence in Northern region against Mbabazi and Besigye convoys as they have also hit against media. I assume that this will not stop without a big bang, like the Ntungamo clashes. It has be in those levels if there will be a total shut down.

Wenger Mourinho

Well, when we speak of violence we do not speak about specialized in failure like Arsene Wenger, sorry, I am not supposed to speak about football, and the man who said that was sacked for the second time in that club, so Mourinho is really the special one or the sacked one. Let me get back on the campaign trail. Violence isn’t coming from one man or one party. It usual contributed to the acts of the Police who interfere as NRM Police force, and not a political partisan unit, that was even seen in the primaries in Northern Region where fully uniformed police officer voted. So there traits are there and the IGP Kayihura was on second delegates conference in Kololo to vote for Mzee sole candidacy project, as he does, he just follows orders.

NTungamo 13.12.15 NRM - Amama

The violence of Ntungamo is the epitome of the violence during the campaign trail. There been violence pre-campaign trail when the opposition tried to hold meetings and get delegates to come forward as the police couldn’t accept this. They went fully fledge armoured with tear-gas and guns against people with not even a blade. As they we’re petty criminals instead of bank-thieves. The irony of that is that certain Police has during the campaign trail actually robbed a bank and is now jailed by the government. So there been actions from certain police and police interference into politics. Just like before the presidential campaign trail when IGP Kayihura told the world about the journalistic integrity, this was before his men was undressing opposition woman on the way to Rukungiri. Well, the Police have interfered though silent before Papal visit. It was so scary peace, a unusual peace. Now that the Pope is only sharing the #VoteSevo poster on some roundabouts around in the country; the police have after he left started with ordinary actions towards anybody else then NRM. We can see that they jails people for talking about partial voting, human rights activist for talking about human rights in up-country, detain people for pinning over NRM posters, while the Police help pinning up NRM posters, the police tear-gas late venues, they shut down hospitals for opposition leaders to see, the schools guarded, so guarded that the police stations or post are empty when the Mbabazi or Besigye is in the area. The proud police is busy containing the elements of opposition and even majors are shutting down opposition office in districts! The Police and army are busy being loyal to the NRM-Regime.

NTV Uganda Presidential Debate 2016

While this is happening the opposition have been busy at the #UGDebate16 while Mzee was moving his mouth and brain in the districts, because he couldn’t discuss his policies or be questioned by either TV moderator or fellow Presidential Candidate, that is because Mzee is Carte blanche from those events, even if it is the first of its kind in Uganda. That is why Mbabazi was sounding like NRM spokesman. Something that has continued ever since for some strange reason!

UGDebate2016 P8 Amama

Mbabazi is curious pickle in the mix right now. He is neither nakati nor posho. He seems to want to be both at the same time. He can’t decide on the matter. Mbabazi is running as independent candidate with an independent mandate, in a independent party in a an independent coalition called the Democratic Coalition. The one coalition where Uganda People’s Congress went out off, and also Forum for Democratic Change went out of when Amama Mbabazi became their joint Presidential Candidate; the independent candidate Amama Mababazi; who still sees himself as part of NRM and as a NRM member is an independent presidential candidate. That is hard matrix of thought and also hard equation, even a PHD in math can’t get the numbers to be correct. There is a mix of check and balance that doesn’t add up. Mbabazi is political schizophrenic and can’t be both NRM and Opposition, though he struggles with that… Seems like he want to be friend of Mzee still, even if his friend Dr. Ruhakana Ruganda has taken over his place in NRM-Regime, that must be sad sight.

Go Forward 13.11.2015 Luwero Campaign

The other piece of hardships is the accidents of Go-Forward convoy, the deflections of his MPs and candidates, the little piece of men who turns over to him. The way it seems to many NRM moles in the Go-Forward camp, while he has been trying to capture big-fish from NRM without succeeding. Even if certain members leave in the villages there is many big-men and Woman MPs who has left his fold and regretting standing by him on nominations day. Something that hasn’t happen in the same fashion for Dr. Kizza Besigye during the campaign trail; the trying of fetching the NRM Primaries losers; who also was already MPs and Ministers proved to be meagre failure for the Go-Forward. So that he still get crowds and people behind him is good, but not in the extent of Besigye.

FDC 141015 KB

NRM have continued to trail and travel around the country. With their Voter Tourism, paying people to show up and using government institutions and facilities, also travel methods to show the beauty of their campaign. NRM have also used a fortune on the campaign compared to the opposition. The report that came in January showed the massive amount of war-chest that the President has. Hiring also and paying in towns that they didn’t have rallies so that the boda-boda drivers and other local’s transporters would be able to be used by Go-Forward or FDC in the area.

Museveni Idi Amin

Fear-mongering rhetoric comes from the NRM-regime and their cronies, not only Mzee, but their spokesmen and loyal party officials. That is either Police or Secretary General, even members and former members, talking coup d’état or vote rigging. Even shooting and killing the opposition if they feel the election was stolen away from them. IGP Kayihura wanting to arm his Crime Preventers to secure the NRM-Regime, while one of the Generals says to the media that he will not turn down and give away power if they lose the elections. Proves that the fear they are spreading to the public is staggering. Mzee has told for long he is the only one who create and keep peace within the army and to the public, Mzee has said he still isn’t done with his project; the one is his been doing for 30 years. While this is doing so the Police and Electoral Commission will go after the FDC for using the Defiance, while the Police are detaining and blocking them from travelling on while they are campaigning. So it is some kind of justice happening, but only against opposition, while supporting NRM. Who knew?

M7 NRM

NRM has been campaigning under the #VoteSevo or #SteadyProgress, while the Opposition has gone after this ones at every turn, especially when showing the schools and other government institutions who has deteriorating during his three decade tenure. Like Aswa bridges and Abim Hospital, that has been the epitome of the neglect of the government to serve the people. While NRM have come with the same pledges and same kind of attitude as they have done in two last campaigns. So people are tired of it, even in the place called Isigniro the people was so tired that they left in the middle of the speech of Mzee, that must hurt him, the ones left behind was crime preventers and paid crowd, the locals left the venue when they heard enough of the same kind of empty promises. As the rest of public is, not everybody, but a big bunch seems to be; since the crowds for Besigye isn’t going down and Mbabazi get decent crowds, and the two other ones doesn’t pay them to attend or use the tool called: Voter Tourism.

Uganda EC Wall

The initial scare is the coming rigging and the partiality of the Electoral Commission as the chief got a heavy pay check to stay as boss. Loyalty pays when it comes to Eng. Dr. Badru M. Kiggundu. He has gotten ballot-papers from South Africa, biometric-machines and promised to have enough people to make impartial voting process happen. As well as COMESA and the EU have sent monitors, the Commonwealth was monitoring the last election, not that; that made a difference. It was more we can now show after the rigging that the election was filled with malfunctions during counting, fraud and also buying voters as they did in the General Election 2011. Why should not Mzee use the same tricks now? If the NRM Primaries are a story of what can come then there will be a “Circus” as Kahinda Otafiire said then. As the pre-ticked ballots, stuffed ballot-boxes, MPs and winners in prison while the results coming, as the candidates comes into the tally offices and takes the register and the ballot-papers. This happen so that the NRM-EC couldn’t validate the result from the area. They we’re also using security officers by the polling station to make the voters afraid and scare them to vote for their candidate, so democratic of those NRM big-men who used this tactic.

While the reports of further deployment of troops in Kampala of 5000 soldiers to secure the peace of the election, or to shut down if the people reacted to the result and claim the rigging for the NRM-Regime, as they have done before, last time was in 2011. Something they want to be sure about. The General Katumba Wamala has said that the army will take control if the people are not accepting the result; I know I am paraphrasing, but that is initially what he meant. It is similar to the NRM-Regimes scary rhetoric, but he got the guns to blast Kampala into oblivion.

Topowa Vote

There rumours of more ballot-papers coming in the once who came to Entebbe on 28th January 2016, there rumoured that their will come a second batch ballot-papers from the Island state of Seychelles or Mauritius on the 4th February, to deliver and be able to pre-ticket them before arriving in Uganda, to secure the NRM and their men their seats in Parliament. We would not be surprised if this would happen, they have done something like this before.

Road Block from Police

The next days will be more police around the opposition rallies, they will block the people and be rowdy as the tension and fear of losing grips will take its toll on the police. While the NRM will portray the perfect picture and look beautiful towards the Election Observation Missions from COMESA and EU, while they will do the opposite to the opposition. Tear-gas venues, block venues, stop processions in towns, stop pinning up poster or detaining people for pinning posters or affiliated with the opposition. We will see more radios losing their transmitters, TV stations taking down content questioning the regime as the NBS Sunset did recently questioning the IGP Kayihura, TV-Stations being banished from the NRM or talked about in a vicious way. TV-Stations will either lose their licences or transmitter for having Mbabazi or Besigye, even if they have messages that are negative on the governance levels of NRM. If the NRM-Regime could they would have shut me down… but that is another story.

Museveni Gulu 091015

We will see coming and coming general election that will be questionable, the cringes to power… they will not let it go easy, President Museveni feels he owns the people and the country, even if the people doesn’t feel the same, as seen in Kiruhura district yesterday, his home area was totally blue and no people ferried there. As the FDC doesn’t have the budget of NRM or War-chest of the long-serving president. That will continue until the people goes to the polls. People will try to be bought before going into the voting booth, villages will be visited by NRM millionaires and billionaires who will lose their wealth if the NRM loses their power; so the way to keep their riches is to pay the locals to vote for NRM candidates and sole candidate Mzee. We will see and hear about giving goats, cows and gasoline to boda-boda drivers, as they will give away soap and other merchandize in town-centres from Tororo to Lira. We just know they will go to any measure to secure the power yet again.

So if there will be some other stories then the ones I accessing is because the Orwellian monster will not turn overnight, especially when they have built the King Kong monster over 30 years. So it is a giant who makes the Presidential Palace at Nakasero and Entebbe Statehouse wealth looks tiny. We can’t expect anything else, therefore FDC have to continue with defiance, and the opposition have to stay strong, because the Police have already funds for the post-election violence, and the UPDF is starting to prepare their security of the NRM-regime force of keeping power. So there is little to see unless the people goes back instead of reacting and then goes back to the villages to feed their families. We can hope for something else, but the fear to lose life for the power and seeing how it has turned; an also become after the people demonstrated in 201 P1. So there will be issues in the coming days and the police will show its flex and the army is starting deployment. This here  is not looking positive with the knowledge how this regime is keeping power and wanting to reign as long as possible.Peace.

Today the FDC campaigns in Hoima; The Calvary had to act foolish; but with negations the activist was freed

FDC 22.01.2016 P6 Begining of Campaign in Hoima

Hoima starts off so well! FDC Convoy had their first stop-over at Katanga in Bugambe sub-county. Buhaguzi constituency in Hoima District. The fact that People’s President Dr. Kizza Besigye is addressing his people here in kiswahili points to changing demographics. Thanks to FDC Hoima leaders led by chairman Jackson Wabyona and candidates aspiring on FDC ticket on various positions for the good mobilization.

FDC 22.01.2016 P4

A police man at Kyarushesha police post threatened to shot at Journalists; who were covering the arrest of FDC supporters who were pinning Kizza Besigy’s posters at the venue where Besigye was scheduled to hold a rally there. The police man fired two bullets!

As he (the Police Man) contantly yells at journalists stoping them from capturing his actions. All the shootings happened in the presence of Kizza Bessigye before he start addresing the rally.

FDC 22.01.2016 P1

Defiance in action. We have held our rally at Kyarushesha Police Station; as we demanded the release of our mobilisers; who apparently were arrested by police for putting up Kizza Besigye posters. They fired bullets to chase the crowd away but nobody is moved and instead people continued to come.

By the time Kizza Besigye finished addressing the swelling crowd, our mobilisers had already been released! The power of numbers! #WesigeBesigye!
