More Musevenisms as the cronyism is real!

Danger, danger, be alert, this here will be sinful text. As the sins of the minds and spirit is shown again and again. By the same system and the same lord, nothing is changing only the names on the boards and on the appointments, but the same insignificant attributes continues. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has during the last appointed and re-appointed twice Residential District Commanders, he has also redirected appointments directly at Makerere University and to top it off, he has sacked and re-appointed a Executive Director and board for Uganda Investment Authority (UIA). All of these within days.

What is striking is how the State House is all involved in these matters, how connected the actions of the President and his will is the main factor in the decision made by the state. The government is de facto the President, we all knew this, but with the RDCs, UIA and Makerere, the Ministers and the Ministries, the experts and whatnot’s all have to wait for the blessing from Museveni.

It isn’t weird things are going slow, as the rubber-stamping son-of-a-gun in Entebbe has to deliver the verdict and put his seal on the matter, as he has to validate and secure every single appointment, even the janitors are surely hand-picked by the President. This is the proof of cronyism if there ever is one. The way he has to single-handedly decide and give people merits. After a month of speculation and a claim from Hon. Evelyn Anite that the Executive Director of UIA was corrupt and now the President has re-appointed someone else, while the former ED is challenging the merits of the case. It is really astonishing.

Just like the one day, a new batch of appointments and redeployment of RDCs came about, a day later revealed that some had been dead, one all the way back to 2014. Therefore, kind of hard to be a RDC when your deceased. That is why, on the 15th June 2018 the new list came into circulation and people started to speculate. However, by 24th June 2018, the RDCs fraternity had to be calm down await new orders, as the list was changed and by 25th June 2018, Uganda Media Centre had to write similar to calm it down. It just shows the madness in system and the erratic behaviour has consequences on the ground.

Jolly Kaguhangire, the now former ED of UIA is the crown-example of cronyism in the time of Museveni. The relative of the First Lady Janet Museveni. Who has been the ED since 2017 and now fired in mid-2018. Certainly, the stand-off, the whistleblower to the IGG and the whole farce will continue and persist as the family squabble will hit the headlines. There aren’t anything, which that will stop that at this point. The UIA is used as pawn in a game and the reality is that the Musevenism is the end-game.

This here will not end with the squabble between the board of directors, neither the IGG or even the Minister Anite who has used her role as the one with oversight to look into the activity of the UIA. But this will end with either ruthless activity, re-appointment or even being posted somewhere else, the ED of UIA is a family member, she will in the end be shielded. However, this shows why the family sagas and the interference are dropping the level of integrity and transparency, as they are obliged to be in-charge. Not on merits or skills, but because of their entitlement to the first family.

This is cronyism at its worst, where the ones either in family or loyal to the President get favours, either as RDCs or as Executive Director of some sort of government Authority. It is just a play of games with the taxpayers, with the citizens and the ones hurt is the innocent, while the elites created by the President continues to merge and surge. There isn’t anything that they will not do to get the cash-in-full. Peace.

Museveni statement: Confusion at the Uganda Investment Authority (28.06.2018)

[Militarism] MPs begs Mzee for soldiers to guard them!

A coward dies a thousand times, a soldier dies but once.”Tupac Shakur

Today on the 27th June 2018 after the recent assassinations of AIGP Andrew Kaweesi and former MP Ibrahim Abiriga, the President had to have a special meeting with the Members of Parliament, because of international travel and meetings in Khartoum. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni had its postponed second meeting on security. This time not in a speech of lecture for the whole world to hear his vision, but a closed session in Parliament, which even the Opposition MPs was shunning.

Therefore, the reports coming from this meeting is interesting, as the MPs have told they are afraid and also their police officers, which are in the car with them. The guards of the MPs are afraid of cross-fire and taking a bullet like the recent bodyguards and drivers of Kaweesi and Abiriga. That is natural, no one in their right mind wants to lose their lives on a job.

That is why the report from the meeting is not only saying the MPs own police officers are afraid and not wanting to stay in the cars. The MPs feels insecure with the Police and therefore, Museveni has ordered soldiers to guard the MPs.

The Members of Parliament will get soldiers around them, because they are insecure. There we’re earlier this month reports, that the Age Limit supporting MPs gotten the Special Force Command aka Presidential Guards to follow them. Now, the rest of the National Resistance Movement (NRM). Will have soldiers guarding them and driving in own cars. They are shadowed and monitored by the army.

The people’s representatives, the ones who are supposed to be supported by the people and be in the hands of the people. Are needing the army, because they are afraid of the society they represent. They are so important, that the UPDF needs to be stripped and have own operation covering MPs.

Resurrection of the National Resistance Army (NRA) is in full affect. Because who needs the support of the people, when you can grab 27 guns and takeover with a bush-war. That is how the President did.

The NRM MPs are really showing their fear, the mediocre attitude, as their high importance are so staggering, that the citizens are lucky to even get their police report investigated if their has happen anything. While they are getting all the perks of the state and now also soldiers securing them. That shows the weakness of the state. When the NRM MPs needs this and wants this. That Museveni and the NRM cannot claim to live in a peaceful society, when the soldiers are following and monitoring the MPs.

It isn’t just in spirit and in actions from the State House, even the MPs knows this. Everything is solved with guns, therefore, stay loyal with the people’s with the biggest guns. That happens to be army and the soldiers.

It is really weak and forgetting who they represent. They think they represent the President, but they represent the people. They shouldn’t be afraid of the people, but apparently they are. MPs whose afraid of their own society isn’t a sign of strength. However, it is a proof of insecurity and lackluster institutions, who is supposed to control the safety and rule of law.

Who need the people, when you have soldiers, right? Peace.

The NRM have fixed Butebo and Pallisa District By-Elections before the polls starts!

The newly created district Butebo district out of Pallisa district, where the boundaries was even contested in Parliament before the creation of it in November 2017. Therefore, the coming election for 28th June will be with National Resistance Movement MP Flag-bearer Samuel Keddi. You know the district is poor, when the district itself only have one car, this is owned by Butebo Sub-County District Councilor Gabriel Enyaru. That is why this By-Election is showing how unfavorable the wealth is shared in the Republic.

So, the NRM today came out with Press Release mocking the Opposition for not fielding a candidate, however, that is untrue. With the creation of the Butebo District. Forum for Democratic Change was ready to field their candidates in the district, by they were all disqualified by the Electoral Commission. This was preliminary precaution of the NRM. To secure a victory without any real contest. The biggest losers here is the residents of Butebo and Pallisa, who doesn’t have real competition for their voters for their new District Chairman and Woman MP.

The reason we know this is because: “there is an affidavit certified by URSB and in The Uganda Gazette clarifying on the issue of names but the Mr. Museveni has still insisted on disqualifying the FDC candidate by Monday 18th June 2018” (Harold Kaija, 15.06.2018).

That is why the NRM regime is securing the Butebo MP without really trying and fixing the results before it begins. The NRM is afraid of any real effort. The Bugiri By-Election is already heavy contested and is a worry, combined with the Jinja East, Kyadondo East and Rukungiri By-Elections. The NRM doesn’t want the Butebo District and Pallisa District to become another win for the Opposition. It has been insulting enough. That is why Museveni have ordered the EC to deliver the results on a silver plate. That is why they have also disqualified Pallisa Woman MP Candidate Achola Catherine Osupelem from the FDC.

Seems like Museveni gets his will, the FDC will not be allowed to run their Chairperson Flag-bearer Sam Khalwa against Keddi. That is weak-tea. When the NRM claims there was no opposition candidate for that role, when Khalwa was ready.

How stupid does the NRM think the people are?

They have disqualified the FDC candidates in the Butembo and Pallisa Districts. Therefore, the retribution from the public, should be defy the polls and not show up on 28th June 2018 in Butebo, as the NRM has fixed the result in their favor already! Both Woman MP and District Chairperson have been barred from the race. Peace.

NRM Secretariat – Re: SG Lumumba in Butebo Today (23.06.2018)

#SecurityUG: Museveni repeats himself, again!

For someone who has said everything and commented about everyone. You would think he would look into advice and policies before opening his mouth, alas that is not the case. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, addressed the Parliament like an open book and without any hesitation. None idea to stupid or to hard to achieve. There we’re no person whose place in the state couldn’t be addressed by him either. As his achievements and his works shouldn’t be shattered even. There is always root causes back to colonial times and because of the British. It is not him and his works behind no, no, that is lie in the eyes of Museveni.

He promised again CCTV Camera’s that is a promise that reappear every time some significant dies or assassinated. Because that is a costly budget post and eats of the bribes needed for the constant cronyism. A new one was the Fingerprinted ID Guns, that is a good idea, but with Forensic Laboratory, does the state has enough resources or even digital structure to pull it off?

He again promised registered number-plated helmets which is processed and in the registry. Who will actually do it and what it will cost. Who knows at this point, but some nut-job in the civil service will in the end crunch the numbers. Alas, the magical enterprise is also banning hoodies, and hoods from drivers of boda-boda and vehicles in general. Because you become a villain and a gangster for wearing one. Wonder if he will ban the burka’s and other head-wear like hats? Since the law should be equal, that everything covering the eyes should be illegal and when you cannot recognize the person. It is a no-go as the driver of the moving object.

As he continues the assault on boda-boda’s he wanted them to have specialized digital number-plates. So if the owner did something, they could easily find it in the registry. However, does this solve it if they tries to cover the plate or even take them off before the deed. Therefore, the exercise itself might futile, even some criminals might interchange number-plates so they can pin the crime on someone else. That is why the possible use of this is questionable at best. But having a registry for ownership of boda-boda is good in all sense and purpose of a state.

You know he really has thought through a new idea when he the name of the Canine Unit is being established to hunt for the criminals stealing produce like Coffee and Tea in the rural areas. This means a separate police unit with dogs will sniff after possible produce stolen from farmers. Instead of looking into the gangs or the ones trading-off the ill-gotten goods, they are looking into minor offenses with a new mighty barking unit. Such a Noble idea!

Therefore, listening to Museveni for advice at this point is hard. Because he has said and pledged the same sort of stuff before. Like the CCTV and the massive registration of anything considering Boda-Boda’s. Not thinking of the implications, neither of the cost or whose job it is book-keeping it. That always comes in the aftermath and is the Ministries problem. Not his problem.

Secondly he comes with the weird as topics of a Canine Unit for the Police Force to sniff out agricultural produce. Not having dogs to sniff out cocaine or illegal drugs. No, sniff after coffee and cash-crops in the villages and in rural areas. They will have killer and kick-ass dogs sniffing into oblivion.

There is never a dull day in the mind of Museveni. It cannot be and neither anything spotted in his mind, that is dumb. Because his solutions is always golden. He is like MIDAS. Everything turns to gold.

Are you ready for dogs sniffing after coffee in Ibanda? Museveni is… Peace.

Opinion: Museveni and his four excuses for losing the recent by-elections!

We can just wonder, when this grows old, kinda like the 1986ing the issues, and saying he has solved issues ever since then. Therefore, he has the answers and no one else. They are just not listening to him and his ways. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni have now written an analyzes of the losses of the recent losses in Rukingiri, Jinja-East and Kyadondo East. Three contested By-Election that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) has lost. In all of them, the NRM has used their machinery and the acts ruling party to get their candidate through. Even without achieving it. They haven’t had the plan or the message that could gain the ballots. They are tired of the regime and of the President. Who is all ruling on borrowed time, as he uses all times to put blame on others. Like he has done today in his statement on the By-Election. I will take on excuse after another. He says its the four mistakes, I would say it his four excuses for losing.

First Excuse:

Leaders not linking with the economic interests of the Local people in a systematic way. The People need clear examples, in each area, of how they can get out of poverty by implementing our 4 acres plan model, or the different variations of it” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Full Statement: Museveni Analyses Parliamentary By-elections’ 16.06.2018).

It isn’t like he didn’t try, he came with bashing glory of all sort of gifts and funds for the youth, the NAADs and the SACCO’s. Therefore, the NRM did this and at the blessing of Museveni. It wouldn’t be that sort of rally without him. You should wonder if he should have explained the use of the motorcycles and the gifts to the business-groups better himself? Since he as the President is nearly there just for show-off and also PR Stunt to show the greatness of the NRM. As the gifts are pouring into the region, when the By-Election is going on.

Second Excuse:

The lack of organisational linkages with the grass roots is the next problem. In the case of Rukungiri, in spite of some elements using crude sectarianism, the people could not be swayed. What, then, did the opposition do? Use manipulation taking advantage of the lack of linkages between the Local people and the NRM leadership that was directly managing the operation. One of the rumours they started was that the FDCs had been given money by the NRM. They said: “Itwe nitutuunga sente, Imwe muteera oburuuru mutaine ekimutungire”. This could be translated as: “for you, you vote for the NRM, while for us the NRM leaders give us money even when we vote against them!” With our fast communication with our mobile phones, this would have been detected by our grass-root groups and counter-acted with SMSs. After campaigning very successfully on the 28thand 29th of May, 2018, holding 9 big or very big rallies at the Sub-county levels except for Nyakagyeme, I did not follow up again and I shouldn’t have done so because there are people to do that. Only to find out later that, that was one of the problems” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Full Statement: Museveni Analyses Parliamentary By-elections’ 16.06.2018).

This excuse is because of how the party and the leadership of Museveni has been. Everything has to sanctioned and accepted from the State House. All and everyone who matters are decided from the State House. If there is anything happening, the orders has been from the State House and with the blessing of the State House. Therefore, the lack of grassroot organization is a systemic issue that Museveni himself has created. Because of his obsession with power, that is the reason for this. This is not the local leadership issue, the excuse is worthless at best. The President knows this and said it in the end. “I did not follow up”, that shows the initial problem with his leadership style and organizational focus, as he has to follow up and he has to guide, he has to delegate and control. That is the reality and he says it himself. Like he admits his excuse, but still blames the local leaders, when he himself didn’t follow up on it.

Third Excuse:

The third mistake appears to be some of the NRM Leaders taking sides in the intra –NRM competitions. When, some weeks ago, I met the confused Catholic Priests, led by one Katsigaire, they were bitterly complaining about Major General Jim Muhwezi’s bias, or opposition to, Hon. Paula Turyahikayo and yet she was the Movement flag bearer. Apparently, Jim fought her in the primaries and, even after she won the primaries, the priests were alleging that the Jims promoted an Independent against her. When I met Leaders at Ntungamo, I criticized this. I had criticized this tendency in the past. When Hon. Janet K. Museveni developed interests in competing in Ruhaama, I first opposed the idea totally until the Local elders insisted” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Full Statement: Museveni Analyses Parliamentary By-elections’ 16.06.2018).

When Museveni says someone is confused politically, it is always, that they are not in accordance or within his camp. They are usually a problem or someone who is thinking freely outside the borderline crazy control freak of Museveni. That is why Katsigaire are getting called that and told-off like that. This is just standard by him and his excuses. That he defends his loyal cadre Muhwezi is natural and had to show loyalty to his wife Janet. Because both of them cannot do anything wrong. What the President wants is that he wants all of NRM to follow his favorable NRM Flag-Bearers and his candidates. So that the party continues on his line and his vision under him. No one else understands, if they oppose that. Then they are confused. That is why he is a borderline crazy control freak.

Fourth Excuse:

Finally, the problem of lack of thorough preparation. Rukungiri has got 16sub-counties, 75 parishes and 280 polling stations. Surely, the NRM leaders should have had their agents per polling station to, first of all, verify the voters on the register. Are they the true voters known in the area? Secondly, ensuring that, through cheap means, you keep in touch with the 30 leaders per village, who also keep in contact, by word of mouth, with the NRM members in the village. Thirdly, when it comes to the voting day, we should have our own hard cover book where everybody that comes to vote will be recorded, so that we guard against votes stuffing” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Full Statement: Museveni Analyses Parliamentary By-elections’ 16.06.2018).

This here is just insulting and insinuating that the opposition are stuffing ballots and rigging. As the NRM has to prepare to secure the vote. It is like he doesn’t know what his party does and the fantastic levels of rigging the NRM are doing. That is why Pre-Ticked Ballots and marked ballots are common place in the police stations and with the NRM leaders in the elections. Therefore, writing like this is to shelter his own, when he certainly knows what the NRM leaders does. He even sends the army to intimidate and harass the locals to vote in his favor. He uses the police to detain and take away the polling agents of other parties. Uses all sorts of methods to intimidate the opposition. That is why the preparation excuse is just insulting our intelligence. It is like he says his democratic, when he really uses all tricks to get his way.

This is the short commentary to the nonsense of the day. It isn’t the last time Museveni will come with excuses. That is something he could do all day, he will complain even back to the enclave and the British arriving in Uganda. He expect the Ugandans to be like Tippu Tip who left everything for Stanley to explore the DRC. The same Museveni expects of his people, that they leave everything behind and follows his lead. Peace.

Mzee: Your new Security Guidelines are going stupid, not going better!

Trust me, under the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Nothing will be seen as foolish, nothing will seen as bonkers, every single possible way of securing the people will now appear. If that is registering all cars, lorries, tanks, motorcycles and bikes. Nothing will be left behind, even thongs will have special registry within the Ministry of Ethics and Integrity. We can just await that, all to stop the assassins from killing someone.

We can await that if the president is serious, there should be some CCTV put-up everywhere. They should be able to keep up with moving traffic, even help the metropolitan police to keep up with traffic violations. However, that will not happen. President Museveni has promised this in the past, but haven’t had the capacity.

The President did today say he would ban hoodies and such on motorcycle drivers, also get the drivers to have helmets, which is visible in the night and numbered. I don’t think the clue is in the hoodies, as much as it is in thongs. It is that someone will drive unregistered and unlicensed motorcycle, than carry guns to blast someone into oblivion. That happen to Kaweesi and Abiriga. The hoodie wasn’t the issue, it is that the police haven’t the proper registers for guns or for the gangs who carries illegal firearm. That is why the gangs and mafias get to continue their unlicensed business.

The issues isn’t to register, to uniform all the drivers of that and also get specialized headgear. Also ban hoodies and let the smile of the driver be seen in middle of the night. It is the NRM and the President who haven’t been responsible or accountable. They should have reacted before and considered what is lacking, instead of creating issues to a whole transporting industry.

This is the same that happen after Kaweesi, when the NRM relaunched the registration of Sim-Cards and harassment of civilians, they had to go through long routes, before the final registration of the Sim-Cards. The Telecommunications companies followed suit and the citizens too, until they got the replacement of the Sim-Cards. The whole situation created by state was hectic and chaotic.

President Museveni, wants every single person driving motorcycles to be visible and registered now, because the second time of killers driving that. Instead of getting his police and intelligence officers actually following the gangs and the possible criminals. That is unlikely at this point, they seem more preoccupied with monitoring Besigye, than catching killers and thieves. The Security Organizations and Presidents should be ashamed by themselves.

The new Security Guidelines for Motorcycles are really going stupid. It is going foolish, becoming nonsense. Nothing is left behind… the President will soon make sure your register ball-pens and the ink-pens, because you can kill someone with that too. Should he do that too? Because that is the next level? When he is already talking about GPS monitoring of Motorcycles and also uniforming the drivers. What else is left?

That is why this is overzealous and to another level. That is why I expect thongs and underwear to marked, secured and GPS on. So the Dictator can follow everyone around and what they do. Since everyone driving motorcycles is an issue and last year everyone with a cellphone. He continues with stupid countermeasures. Instead of actually letting his Security Organization fix the situation. Giving them way and looking into the crimes committed. Peace.

NRM’s Official Bitch Move: Impounding the bribed boda boda’s after losing Rukungiri By-Election!

In advance of the Rukungiri By-Election in April 2018, the National Resistance Movement and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was giving away a lot of free stuff to the constituents. That was in favor of securing their candidate in the by-election that was held on the 31st May 2018 and the final verdict came on the 1st June 2018. That the Forum for Democratic Change MP Candidate won. Now we are in the midst of June, the date is 11th June 2018 and the state have addressed their concerns now.

Now in the midst of all this. The NRM and Museveni has now impounded the Boda Boda’s they gave to the public. They offered a 1000 boda boda’s to the Rukungiri District. We are surely soon seeing the lorries and the wood-machines also being pounded by the state. Because they didn’t deserve this stuff, when the ruling regime lost the battle in Rukungiri.

We are now seeing how belittling and how foolish these bribes are, they are only acceptable when the NRM wins. They will not touch it and the NRM are now revenging their loss. They are taking back their gifts. Who takes away gifts anyways? How the NRM defend this?

I am not in favor of these gifts. Instead of delivering service delivery and securing funds for government projects. This is one-time gifts which is not sustainable or for the goodness of the community. However, when they are already given to the district and the public. It is disgusting to take it back. Would you take away the roses your giving to your wife? Would you dare to take the candy given to a small child?

That is why this is disgusting and horrific. If the state cared about theses citizens they would keep the gifts and not impound it. Are they clearing the accounts of the SACCO’s and NAADs too? What else are they up to since the NRM is revenging the voters of Rukungiri.

The NRM are acting like an ex-girlfriend wanting their gifts back. They gave nice gifts to the boyfriend, but now demanding them back, because he wasn’t good enough. That is the truth. The NRM is acting like whiny little bitch. Not like a responsible party, the gifts and the bribes is not sustainable. However, it is such a charade when your impounding the gifts given a month ago. How little do you respect the rights of voting for who your favoring?

This is sour and bitter, weak and such a bitch move. Peace.

Museveni stop blaming everyone else!

Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws” – Plato

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni cannot accept rejection, neither defeat, he never has. That is in his veins, he cannot accept being beaten, even when he used all the tricks in his book, paying out funds, using the police and military to intimidate. Still his party the National Resistance Movement (NRM) lost in the 31st May Rukungiri By-Election to the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) candidate for the Woman-MP seat.

What I have to say, is that Museveni always blames everyone else. If the taxes isn’t good enough or made with provision, which handle the reality of the day, it is either Uganda Revenue Authority fault of the Ministry of Planning, Finance and Economic Development (MoPFED). Because it couldn’t be his fault, it never is.

If the lack of organization between all security organizations is never his fault. It is not Museveni who has appointed and given the ISO, ESO, UPF and UPDF the mandates they have. No no, it is the generals who lacks their duty and the police officers whose not educated enough. Not that the state hasn’t sufficient protocol or budgets to actually do their jobs. That is another issue.

It is never Museveni’s fault when there is a new Cholera Outbreak or the health care system is failing. No no, that is the local government, who doesn’t have a dime to buy a cookie, but him in his private plane cannot be blamed. That the hospitals lacks equipment, medicine and even ability to pay their electricity bills. However, that is not to blame Museveni. No everything is fine and dandy, as long as his ministers in the Health Ministry can fly to India for treatment. Don’t blame Museveni, he hasn’t done anything wrong.

If the roads are full of potholes and you have to ride like a drunk on a straight road ahead. It isn’t Museveni’s fault. It is always Uganda National Roads Authority, Local Governments Councils and the developers whose tenders was given by the central government. The deals and arrangement is never Museveni’s fault, even when he allows the likes of Dott Services to continue their forgeries and mockery of road development.

It is never Museveni’s fault, when the education system is becoming a tragic stink. That he hasn’t invested in salaries, in the buildings or equipment to the students. Not able to secure lunch meals for the kids either. Teachers working to jobs, having gardens and boda-boda businesses on the side, as the teachers salaries are not paying enough on the low-level. But that is not your fault, because the State House, Office of Prime Minister and such is eating such a load of the yearly budget. Still, the Ministry of Education and lack of governance. Can only be the principals and others, but not you. No no.

So the list could go on. It is never Museveni’s fault, the Gods knows that. He is innocent, he is never guilty. Museveni is the Saint of Uganda, the greatest man ever to grace the hills and valleys of Uganda. No can ever be on the level of Museveni. He is the grandest king and his holiness, he is the one whose never done a fly anything. He cannot do mistakes.

Just like the pope in the Catholic Church has the teaching of Papal infallibility, where in general the pope cannot fail. It is a misconception, however, the idea is fitting. As Musveni are clearly never able to fall or do wrong. He got a gift like that, if it was so. Why isn’t the golden gates already popping by at the State House of Entebbe? Why isn’t Uganda industrialized and Modernized in the perfect vision of Museveni?

He has had 32 years to do it and still haven’t achieved it. Time to take the cross and carry it. Peace.
