Opinion: Kutesa lives in an alternative reality [and I needs to know how he got there]

Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa yesterday published a press release where he addressed Western Powers and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). Which in itself is a natural thing to do for a Foreign Minister. Especially, when you want to address or explain certain situations for context to the international community. However, his so far from planet earth. He must either already entered Akon City or gotten a VIP ticket to Wakanda. Where I want to join him in the near future. Because, it must be bliss to live like him.

Kutesa is really out of line and lying out of his ass when his saying abductions doesn’t exist and arrests only happening through due process. The minister needs a reality check and maybe someone should enlighten him. He must living on pink cloud and drinking some powerful juices to not be able to apprehend the truth.

The Minister should connect himself with the Jeje Odongo and Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. Even have a talk with the IGP Okoth-Ochola , Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga and others who are associated with the abductions, kidnappings and unlawful detentions. There are several of reports and security outfits, which has been in direct connect with the “drones” or “Panda Gari’s”. That is the state effort before, during and after the elections this year. Therefore, Kutesa needs to get his mind right and corrected.

He knows perfectly well that this has occurred and happened in the Republic. His just hoping the International Community and these dignitaries are naive. That these folks knows nothing and will eat the lies of his hands. While civilians are getting court martial like soldiers. People are abducted and the state doesn’t even produce the proper list of the ones who is taken away. That is why its disrespectful to the relatives and the loved ones of these individuals that the Minister says this.

Kutesa should know better, but rather live on a lie, than speaking the truth. That is the character of him and the regime he serves. The Minister is a reflection of how the NRM operates and how they think they can whitewash the sinister acts they do. That is just the reality of it all and its tragic.

Sam Kutesa needs to produce does tickets and ways to get Wakanda. If not how he already has entered Akon City. Since, with this sort of statement he cannot be sincere. It is false and a lie. The minister needs to chill or apologize about this.

The Minister needs to get an understanding or back-off. Because, the lies is easy to decipher in 2021. It is not like the grapevine is silent and the truth isn’t leaked out. This isn’t the bush and where you can control all aspects of information. That is impossible at these days and he cannot pull up a smokescreen to hide the facts.

Kutesa needs to call up Odongo and get some knowledge. Clearly that’s not happening. If not, his trying to deceive the world and that wouldn’t be shocking in 2021. Peace.

Uganda: UN experts extremely concerned at serious rights violations linked to general elections (13.04.2021)

GENEVA (13 April 2021) — UN human rights experts* today called on the Government of Uganda to immediately stop the brutal crackdown on its political opponents which began in the lead-up to January’s disputed general elections and continues to suppress opposition supporters.

“We are particularly alarmed by the reports of widespread and continued repression against opposition leaders and their supporters,” the experts said. “More than 50 people have been killed as a result of the brutal policing methods, including the use of live ammunition fired without warning, and at least 20 others have lost their lives in incidents linked to the electoral context.”

They urged the authorities to immediately and thoroughly investigate and prosecute all human rights violations, including allegations of extrajudicial killings, arbitrary arrest and detention, enforced disappearance, torture and ill treatment, deprivation of due process of law and assault on freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.

Several thousand people have been arrested and while some have been released, others have allegedly been tortured before appearing in military courts, the experts said. Relatives of others often do not know their fate or whereabouts. “It is outrageous that those who are requesting information about their forcibly disappeared relatives are further subjected to reprisals and arrest,” the independent experts said.

“We are urging the Government of Uganda to take all necessary measures to immediately stop the concealing of information concerning individuals arrested in the context of the general elections, a practice amounting to enforced disappearance, and reveal their fate and whereabouts.

“The arbitrary house arrest between 14 and 25 January 2021 of the prominent opposition leader known as Bobi Wine (Mr. Kyagulanyi), which a High Court ruled to be unconstitutional, is symptomatic of the flagrant suppression tactics of the opposition and the absence of due process of law,” the experts said.

Opposition leaders and their supporters have protested against alleged electoral irregularities and the prohibition of gatherings under the guise of preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The massive deployment of armed forces in cities, as well as the intimidation and attacks of opposition observers at polling stations, reportedly affected voter turnout; while the interruption of internet services slowed the voting process and affected counting.

“The curtailing of freedom of press and media, the intimidation, ill-treatment and assaults of journalists covering the elections and especially the opposition is simply unacceptable. The Government must provide immediate remedies and reparation to all the victims,” the experts said.

The NRM MPs at the Kyankwanzi retreat bonded over Bobi Wine

One of the biggest benefits out of this retreat has been to enable members to bond with one another. We expect that this bonding will help members to relate well with one another in the 11th Parliament” (National Resistance Movement, 12.04.2021).

We know that the President and the ruling regime have been focused on Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. It is now clear that its their message. They are really fearing the “upstart” and his political party. If they didn’t feel it like that. They wouldn’t use the start of the retreat with the newly elected Members of Parliament (MPs) to be aimed at him.

If the NRM retreat was about their plans and the manifesto was the vital for the 11th Parliament. The MPs telling this in secrecy wouldn’t leak this information. Because, the NRM is clearly looking at Bobi Wine and continuing to go after him.

As it is reported today:

A source who happens to be an MP from Eastern Uganda says since the Kyankwanzi retreat kicked off on Friday, the main discussion has been hinged on the National Unity Platform party leader, Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine. “We expected the heated speakership debate to be settles but up to now, our trainers are preaching only Bobi Wine and NUP since Friday,” the MP told this reporter. “We are being told not to allow Bobi Wine to confuse the youths. I don’t what our trainers mean by that,” he adds” (Emmanuel Busingye – ‘Bobi Wine is Uganda’s enemy, NRM tells MPs in Kyankwanzi retreat’, 12.04.2021, Ekyooto.co.uk).

This is not shocking… and it is anticipated in some matter of fashion. The NRM have targeted and the state has targeted him and his party. That is a simple verdict, as everything he has done has either become illegal, detained or even silenced. The man cannot do anything without getting into trouble.

The NRM and the state is in default setting: “Go after Bobi Wine. All means possible and no method is to much”. That is why they had to discuss Bobi Wine and NUP at the Kyankwanzi retreat. The NRM will have the majority in the 11th Parliament. They are the ones that can set the policies and the legislation ahead of the next term. However, they are busy finding ways to undermine the opposition. Because, they stand for so little that they have to go after him.

This shows how little the ability and power means to the NRM. When they are using their time to plan the 11th Parliament policies. That is such a waste of time and shows their lack of progress. This is the fellows who promise securing people’s future, but they are lost in the whirlwind of politicking.

It is clearly a sign that Bobi Wine will be the enemy of the state and his party will be the aim. That is what is happening and it will continue until the end of time. As long as Bobi Wine dares to challenge Museveni and the NRM. They should have capacity to make a use of their mighty power. Instead, they are showing how they fear the opposition. That is ironic and tragic at the same time. Peace.

Opinion: Museveni should just graze those cows…

The President since January 26th 1986 should resign and retire. The old man with the hat and advanced age should be humble and hang up his boots. Thought we know deep down in our hearts that this man will only retire when he catches his last breath. This sort of man doesn’t retire or let go. No, his a man who will prolong his stay and overstay in office.

President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni will not retire. Though it would be a friendly surprise to see him constantly be grazing his cows at various of farms or ranches he owns. Where he could drive between them in his SUV and not be continuing his overdue time in office. However, this man who came in with the gun, will die by the gun or if not… by age.

Yoweri will not go out easy. That is why his still there and has outlived most of his enemies. The old man has overcome big hurdles and even gotten away from several of wars. This man has gotten rid of people who could have succeeded him. However, that will not be told stories about now. He has also been implicated in changes of powers in the neighbouring countries as well. That has been done to further his role and also wanting to become a “kingmaker”. Where everyone has to be loyal to him.

President Museveni wants a favourable legacy and known as farmer. Though his CV is filled with bloodshed, conflicts and use of war. This man is a General and a Warlord. Museveni will not be known for peace or negotiations. He will only be able to settle the score across the borders, but never within. In his own neighbourhoods or districts he will get rid of the enemies or silence them with compromising agreements. Where he get the upper-hand and sold out their causes to buy “peace” with him. Museveni doesn’t accept to loose, but he will win by all tricks possible.

That is why the pictures of his grazing the cows is fine and dandy. Nevertheless, the farmer should stay on the farm. He should maybe avoid the State House or politics in general. As it seems his now fitting here more and is more relaxed. Instead of stressing with politics and politicking. He could just chill and be out of sight, and out of mind. That would be healthy for the Republic.

After his been for years now the Personification of the State. The President should try to figure out a way to retire or going into another chapter of life. Surely, the President fears to do so. Since, he has created so many enemies. The old man has used power with ruthless force and the general public isn’t really loving the old man.

The President should consider this, but we know that won’t happened. The old man has promised several times of retiring. Promised to not to change the Constitution or laws to fit his prolonged rule. Nevertheless, betray all of those and hope people forgets.

President Museveni should just stay on the farm and leave the general public a rest. We know that will not happen. The President will only bury all of his enemies and use the state for his own benefits for yet another term. We can expect him to continue this scheme until death. That is just who he is and what his reign is all about.

There is nothing else to speculate on and the pictures on his farms is just to make him more a “commoner”. Though his richer than God and has more money than anyone else in the Republic. Museveni and his family owns the vital businesses and keys to Republic. That is the general rule and how things are going. As Museveni micro-manage everything and has to have his verdict before things get resolved.

The “high above” will stay the “high above”. Nothing will change there and he will not change too. That is a cause you can give up. Even if it would be progress and would be huge achievement to have a peaceful transition without guns involved and have a former president grazing some cows. Peace.

Opinion: They don’t need a ‘bad dream’ when people living in a ‘nightmare’

I assured them that they were very lucky to have woken up from such a ‘bad dream’ because we were so ready for them. I thanked them for realizing the need to come forward so we can work together” Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at Entebbe State House (30.03.2021).

After 35 years in power, the Ugandan President have nothing to offer. He held a meeting with “disgruntled youth” and Inter-Religious Council yesterday. These is unofficial group of youth and religious leaders gathered to “buy peace”. However, that is a false hope at this point.

When citizens are taken by drones, arraigned in military courts and served injustice. It is hard to get a real peace. When citizens are dying, because they got tortured, detention without a trial and kept incommunicado for days. People who are affiliated and representing the opposition is “fair game”. Therefore, it is hard to believe that the President really cares about the liberty, justice and freedom for all.

President Museveni is the nightmare for so many. His not delivering anything else than a despots rule. His the Grand Dictator who reigns supreme and uses all parts of the state machinery to get rid of his enemies. These is his own citizens and their only sin is supporting someone else than him. That is the tragic reality in 2021. This is the fundamental change he offered in 1986. Instead of Idi Amin and Obote, we have Museveni who acts like a forever monarch in office.

He got nothing to bring to the table. He can only pay off fools like Balaam and Jennifer Full Figure, but he cannot bring changes. Except if the World Bank or International Monetary Funds are doling out funds blindly. The President will not work hard or prove anything. He will only go after his nemesis and arch-enemies. If that is Besigye or Bobi Wine. That is what he does and continues to do so.

This isn’t a bad dream, but a real life nightmare. When associates of politicians are lingering in safe-houses, behind bars and charged just because they are affiliated someone else than him. It is really rich that when people turn to the President they are suddenly living in a dream. Certainly, that hasn’t happen to everyone else who has gone from the opposition to the NRM. If that was true, then certain individuals would live better then they actually do.

The President cannot run away from the injustice that his serving the general public. His Excellency cannot just bash in glory … and think he can wash away his sins. The blood is on his hands. The citizens who died for just participating in demonstrations. When the state sent soldiers from Somalia to go after them. That is the sort of finalization of the nightmare the President is serving.

Museveni can speak sweet, but his actions is bitter. There is no denying in that. He got a new prison filled with opposition members. He doesn’t need Luzira prison as much. The Court Martial is not freeing them, because he wants to prove point.

So, when the President speaks now. The acts of the state is more alarming and nothing is happening about it. The various security organizations are keeping citizens behind bars and without a fair trail. People are returning with scars for life and some even turn up dead. Therefore, there is a real nightmare going on and its happening as we speak.

He can be spotted with a few “disgruntled youths” but that is only for PR. The reality is still dark and grim. There is little hope or anything that shows progress. Only more destruction and devastation. Because, the only things that matters in the end… is that his in office and the Head of State. The rest is just history and present day, which we all live through. We should not accept his means to an end. If we do… then we are accepting the nightmare that his giving to so many people and they are not allowed to wake up. Peace.

Uganda Civil Society Leaders’ Demand Immediate End to Abductions, Torture, Illegal Detention and Extra Judicial Killings of Ugandan Citizens (23.03.2021)

Opinon: CJ Owiny-Dollo needs his own ‘Plan B’

“Supreme Court Justice, Esther Kisakye has accused Chief Justice, Alfonse Owiny-Dollo, of confiscating her file which includes her minority ruling on the withdrawal of the presidential poll petition. The justices are Thursday are giving a detailed judgment on why they allowed former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi to withdraw his poll petition. Kyagulanyi, who ran to the highest court to challenge the outcomes of the presidential elections later applied to withdraw his case citing several reasons including the kidnap of his witnesses and bias on the side of the court. “I am here today to give my ruling in the recently withdrawn presidential petition. What is of surprise to me is that my file has apparently been confiscated on the orders of the chief justice,” Kisakye said. She said she has asked the court staff to recover her file so that she can give her dissenting ruling” (Betty Amamukirori – ‘Election petition: Justice Kisakye accuses Chief Justice of confiscating her file’ 18.03.2021, New Vision).

Chief Justice Owiny-Dollo is now undressed. The whole Supreme Court and their planned efforts are now proven in the courts of opinion. The total shambolic affairs is now in the public view. Even a dissenting Justice Kisakye wasn’t allowed and her minority was reported to be confiscated. That says it all really.

There was no factor or ability for anyone to overturn or nullify the Presidential Elections. The ideal of equal before the law or even serve documents was to be finessed. This was all just the final stroke of legitimizing the elections and getting everyone to mov-on. As the legal position and verdict would seal it for the future. It would be a final destination and Museveni would ride to infinity.

We knew the courts would be one sided and they would find all reasons to vote in favour of the incumbent. That was well versed reality and there was no other way this could go. Therefore, the recent revelation only proves why it was right for Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine to withdraw. As there was no option or opportunity for a fair verdict. The court was settled even before the evidence was coming to them.

It is now time for CJ Owiny-Dollo to write his thesis on ‘Plan B’ or find his own. Because, his career and life now depend on Museveni. He got nothing else. Unless, he suddenly wants to go rouge, which is very unlikely. It will take a master stroke for him to suddenly turn on his master now. Especially, since he is indebted and holds this role because of him.

With that in mind. The CJ Owiny-Dollo should consider his way forward. As his legacy is now tarnished. All his career and everything he possibly stood for is now into ashes. There are no redeeming qualities there. He risked it all and took the prestigious appointment but has squander his own name.

He is now a loyal puppet of the President. That is all he is. The Judicial puppet and “Yes-Man” who delivers what the “high above” says. That is the route has chosen. Surely, there are so current pay-offs and wealth attributed to it. However, those will not last forever and whatever his getting. Its not enough to damage hurt.

Bobi Wine and the NUP have now shown the world the state of the judicial independence in the Republic. They have proven it by the acts and the way this has played out. Now, the President and his team can only try shield over the fact. But… this final act only prove what some of us has said for a long time. The Supreme Court and others are there to serve man and not serve justice. Peace.

Bobi Wine arrested as he leads a peaceful protest in Kampala

Today Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and fellow National Unity Platform (NUP) Members of Parliament held a peaceful protest in the Central Business District of Kampala. Unsurprisingly, they arrested them.

The latest update is this: “Update: Police has released Bobi Wine, 8 others and taken them to their specific homes. This follows their arrest during protests today in Kampala, KMP deputy spokesman Luke Owoyesigyire” (Africa Facts, 15.03.2021).

We knew this would happen when the NUP and the Opposition would demonstrate. They could have applied for it, but we know the application would be dismissed or denied. Bobi Wine wouldn’t have been allowed to do so.

Some has called the NUP all keyboard warriors, also that Bobi Wine is all talk. However, he proves he went to the front-line and tried. Now, his house-arrested and this might last a long time again. The same with the MPs who stood with him.

Ugandan politician Bobi Wine arrested today as he was taking part in a peaceful protest against the abduction, torture and murder of his supporters” (Switch Kenya TV, 15.03.2021).

We know that the rule of law is applied only to the opposition and not to the National Resistance Movement (NRM). The NRM can steal, loot and do whatever they want. The SOPs of the COVID-19 regulation is only applied to the opposition and not the ruling regime. So, if they use this excuse. Then they are hypocrites, as we have seen processions, rallies and whatever in regard to this when the yellow bus is around.

That is why we know the law is one for the opposition and another for the ruling regime. It is two Republic’s at the moment. Where one is above the law and the other is oppressed by the same law. That is how the law enforcement is operated.

The opposition was trying to protest the oppression and the answer was actually more oppression. That is impressive and an action in the wrong manner. It shows how the state is run wrong. This was bad when they did it to Besigye and it is wrong when they do it to Bobi Wine.

What value does the Constitution of 1995 have, when some of the articles in it has practically no value? What values have the liberties and freedoms in it, when they can be abused and taken away from the public with no consequences?

We can expect the Military and Police Force to surrounding his home in Magere in Wakiso district. The other MPs who participated will be under surveillance too, if not they are house-arrested too. This last for a while now. Especially, when the President yesterday came with the empty claim of destroying the swearing-in in May 2021.

However, there is no proof of this. Only that Bobi Wine wants civil disobedience in general. Which proven by today’s action… will not be allowed and that was to be anticipated by how the state has acted towards the opposition in the past. It was to be expected and how the state acts towards the dissidents. Peace.

Opinion: Gen. Museveni will tell any story that benefits his agenda..

They have been planning that they will stop swearing in of the president. They won’t. They plan all sorts of things including killing their own opposition people to say it is the government”Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni national address on the 14th March 2021

The old man with the hat, the ageing general and self-styled President for Life Museveni told various of stories yesterday. Not that it will amount to anything. It is just more alleged things and allegations pointed in the other direction. That could easily be put towards him.

Museveni knows he couldn’t win this election without intimidation, fear and open bazaar rigging. That is a reality. He has been rigging elections since he lost in 1980. That is what he does and he uses the state machinery to help his cause. This is so evident.

You know your a sinister old man… when you claim the opposition kills itself to make you look bad. Your really the devil, when you who has the army, security agencies and using the state machinery to oppress opposition. Says they are doing suicides to make you look ugly. That is beyond comprehension, but that is what he said yesterday. How come this is a thing?

If you thought that was bad enough.

He put up the ante:

It was Kyagulanyi and the team that cheated massively. Especially here in Kampala , Mpigi, Kyotera and in some parts in the Eastern like Busoga where our agents were weak, a lot of ballot stuffing happened. Thank God we emerged winners. In his petition, Kyagulanyi said he had evidence showing how Ballot stuffing was conducted, intimidation of their voters but when asked of the evidence, he didn’t show anything”Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni (14.03.2021).

This sort of statement is really strange. If the National Unity Platform should rig an election. Why do it only in one region(s) and not the whole nation to get the upper hand in the Parliament and in the Presidential Elections. Therefore… the idea itself is really rich.

This election was far from free or fair. There was no indication of any sincere or truthful about the election. The polls was rigged and the numbers haven’t made sense. The state had the abilities just like the ruling party in 1980 to field candidates everywhere. While the opposition couldn’t manage to do the same, neither campaign or even try to assemble. That’s why its really a giant lie. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) was bound to win and get their majority by gerrymandering and by rigging the polls. While using the security organizations to intimidate and harass the opposition at the same time.

The General is really making it out of his way to make the opposition look bad and point at them everything he himself is ordering and doing. His even thanking God for rigging an election. That sort of God is not the almighty I believe in. My God isn’t a deity who supporters killers and robbers, but who will serve justice to the ones who trespasses others. Which is what Museveni has done…

He knows that he intimidated the voters. The general even arrested activists, poll agents and others in the night ahead of the polls. Therefore, the reality of this is really out of bound with reality. When his forces even passed through the streets of Kampala within hours before the polls. Who is he kidding here?

The self-styled President for Life only have a life-line … because of army and not because his “loved” by the people. Peace.

Opinion: Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso states that the “Panda Gari” Operation will continue

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s Military Advisor Lt Gen Proscovia Nalweyiso is quoted by the state friendly internet outlet Chimreports.com. where she have said this:

I don’t think when security personnel is arresting a person they first ask them which party they belong to. We have to get rid of the criminal whether or not there is an election” – Lt Gen Proscovia Nalweyiso

Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso also said that they would carry on with the arrests. This is meaning the state has no plans of stopping the “drones” or “Panda Gari’s” of our time. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) and all its security agencies will continue to persist. Especially, when people like she says it so vividly in the government friendly press.

She is a known power-broker in the State House and a trusted aide of the President. Therefore, her words matters. Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso is also the highest ranking official in the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF).

So, when the Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso is supporting and standing behind the ideal of keeping people incommunicado, kidnapped, abducted, tortured and extra judicial-killed. Then you know they will continue to do this. As she knows the hallow halls of power and is a trusted person of the “high above”.

This is the message the State House wants out and also intimidate the public further. The State has decided that these people are “criminals” even without trials, charges or even sentencing. That is alarming, but its fitting the narrative of the President. Which the other day called them “treasonous” and called their acts “treachery”.

Her message today fits that one. As we are supposed to accept the state is arresting opposition members, activists, candidates and leaders an-mass. That is okay, because the state deems these civilians as “criminal” even without any proof or evidence of their supposed criminal activity.

Usually a criminal would be arrested on “criminal intent” or actually have acted criminally. That means a person would have acted upon a criminal conspiracy or done the deed, which is breaching the laws and could be charged for doing so. That would depend on what law the person broke and what sort of charge the person get before getting sentenced and possibly serving time. This should be common knowledge and also a safeguard to not arrest citizens on the whim, but actually with evidence of their crimes or criminal intent. However, in the regard to “drones” and “Panda Gari’s” …. that is all thrown out the window.

The state can deliberately … arrest and do “unlawful” activities without any proof or evidence. They are just organizing these illicit activities to undermine the opposition. The state is not doing this too its own or affiliates with the NRM. No, they are currently tarting the National Unity Platform (NUP) and also the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC). This is happening so rampant and people is later deposed off and dropped randomly dead as well. Therefore, life is very cheap in the republic and you doesn’t have any value to them, if you are associated with the opposition. That is proven now by definition of how they are addressing the misuse of law enforcement to detain people in ungazetted “safe-houses” across the Republic.

Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso is defending this and says it will continue. They will violate the rights of the citizens and their liberty. They are not allowed to assemble, to associate or even acknowledge open support of someone who isn’t Museveni. Because, if you do that, the state is allowed to arrest you without any sort of legitimate way or due process. There is no “equal before law” as anyone they take in or abduct is “criminal” and “treasonous”. They are deserving this and the state just acted accordingly. Which is insane but the sad truth here. Peace.
