Opinion: Mzee’s nonsense apology…

After the recent days of Tweets from now General Muhoozi Kainerubaga. The father has intervened and written an apology to the Kenyan people. President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni was forced to do something and he did. He had to save face for the family and his regime. Because, his son who is in a few years 50 years old had acted scandalous.

Muhoozi should know better, but his arrogance and entitlement, he don’t know better. There is no constraint or abilities to silence him. He is a braggadocios being and a proud one at that. Muhoozi was born with a silver-spoon and he gotten massive fortunes because of his father. It is not earned on merits or qualifications. Everything has befallen him because of his father. All we know of him and the reasons for his promotions is only out of family ties. The case of Muhoozi is the stereotypical nepotism and nothing else.

That Museveni has written an apology is following where the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Press Release from the day before. These two are both trying to downplay and hope for no aftermath after the Tweets. That’s the reason this happen. It is really interesting in the apology itself that Museveni says this:

I ask our Kenyan brothers and sisters to forgive us for tweets sent by General Muhoozi, former Commander of Land Forces here, regarding the election matters in that great country. It is not correct for Public officers, be they civilian or military, to comment or interfere in any way, in the internal affairs of brother countries” (…) “Why, then, promote him to full General after these comments? This is because this mistake is one aspect where he has acted negatively as a Public officer. There are, however, many other positive contributions the General has made and can still make. This is a time-tested formula –discourage the negative and encourage the positive. Very sorry, ndugu zetu Wakenya” (Museveni, 05.10.2022).

We know it’s ironic that Museveni writes these words, like we don’t know what his armies have done in neighbour countries. As if, we don’t know what he has done in the past and toppled regimes to install Museveni friendly leaders there. That’s why it’s sort of hypocritical of him to write this. Yes, his right about that part, but his also the wrong man to write these words. I don’t believe them, because of Museveni’s own past and those ghosts should haunt to eternity.

The other part is just merely insulting, that someone can breach the UPDF Act, act scandalous and spread harmful propaganda. While his still promoted for doing so. His losing the title and being a direct army commander, but his becoming a General at the same time. That’s why the son isn’t really punished, but is instead promoted. If a civilian, an activists or an opposition wrote something similar. He would be bound by law and be in legal trouble right now. He wouldn’t get a fancier suit and be held in high regards.

No one with common sense should believe this apology. Yes, the father has responded and tried to save face. However, the damage is done and its obvious. There is also fear in the Republic of the power of Muhoozi and his insider connections. Since, the MoFA Press Release didn’t mention him or any of his characterizations.

A 48 year old man lacks manner, honour or the understanding of his role. That is so poignant after all of this. If he had felt the rank and office, which he was residing in. He wouldn’t have risked it and acted like he did. However, he don’t have to care, because there is no consequences to him. His only getting elevated by failing. That’s the gist of him here.

Next time he fails. Maybe he will be promoted to the Commander of Defence Forces (CDF). That’s the only thing missing now. Before he resigns from his military roles and the UPDF. This is what his missing of titles and roles at this very moment.

Muhoozi knows he can get away with everything. There is no oversight or transparency about his activity. His just allowed to operate and without any sort of scrutiny. That’s why he has such bravado. Peace.

Uganda: President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – Statement On Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s Tweets About Kenya (05.10.2022)

Opinion: Muhoozi becoming General by default…

After days of causing controversy on Twitter, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga has been promoted to a General. He is now Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga by just living and breathing. There is no efforts or achievements, neither is there any progression or actions made on the battlefield. Because of the humiliation and bad press. The father had to act and he lost the position of being an army commander, but keeping the title of Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations. Meaning Muhoozi still have access and power.

Gen. Muhoozi have gotten a superior rise to become General. This progression has happened quickly and it’s not on merits. No, this is just family matters. That’s why Muhoozi has now gotten a title, but has demoted in the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF).

The father has promoted and demoted him at the same time. That’s because of how his acting as a public figure and army commander. Yes, his out of the army now and could practically run for office in 2026. That’s something the 48 year old man wants to do. Even if he has no oral skill, obvious popularity or achievements worth noting. His just another General with no party or civilian support. The only civilians really supporting is either on his pay-roll or dubious character selling a nightmare.

While Muhoozi become a General. If others in the army had acted like him or if civilians had tweeted like him. We know the Computer Misuse Act would have been used to charge him. The authorities would have gone after him and he wouldn’t have seen tomorrow. If he was an ordinary person he would have been treated brutally, but in the end been released on bail. While only having a brief window to go into exile. That’s what happens to other people speaking openly like him.

If he thinks this is a winning formula. Well, his just a General boosting his ego like a Kabuleta. He is all out there, but have no natural progression or sort of crowds following him. No, his just the egocentric and self-centred as always. This will not stop him or wherever his planning to go.

We can anticipate the rise of the Team MK, as he calls it. Where the National Progressive Movement (NPM) becomes a thing or some sort of similar organization made out of thin-air. Just like his rise from soldier to a general. There is nothing that has been ordinary or through proper protocol. No one else has risen this fast and with lack of merit.

This is surely to boost his ego, as he lost the rank of being the Commander of Land Forces, but keeping the Senior Presidential Advisor is showing his still on government payroll. He will still have power and be within the realm of influence. It isn’t like his outsmarted or kicked out totally. No, he was promoted for a reason and to make him more prestigious.

We all should see the “Project Muhoozi” for what it is. Even if the Twitter tweets has failed him right now. He still have not really lost anything. Yes, no one can take him serious or see him as an army commander. It is easy to see that Muhoozi is far from a capable leader. He don’t have the ability to see himself or reflect on his actions.

That’s why we know… this will have internal ramification and the nepotism of Muhoozi will haunt the President. That he has done this with his wife and his son. Just like he has done with in-laws and other family members too. So, it is not like Muhoozi alone with getting a favourable title and work from within.

However, his just the one who has rose from a civilian to a general within no time. He has gone through the ranks and been promoted rapidly. While there is no sort of proof that he was worthy of any of these, expect he got it because of his father. That’s why this isn’t really it.

Muhoozi is a disgrace and by acting so he got promoted. That’s the story and it’s stupid. Peace.

Uganda: Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Press Statement on the Muhoozi Tweets (04.10.2022)

Opinion: Muhoozi should be busy trying to mount a ‘socialite’

Today Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga has been lightening up on Twitter. War-threats, invasion of Kenya and where he wants to reside after a two week operation to invade Nairobi. Planning where to settle. Also beefing with President Ruto, as he said Uhuru Kenyatta should have stood for a third term… and that just shows what sort of man he is.

Lt. Gen. Muhoozi wouldn’t be a worry, if a was a regular man visiting bars and clubs as a citizen. Nevertheless, his the third in command in the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) and Senior Presidential Advisor. In addition to those roles, his by birthright the First Son and the Son of the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. So, with that in mind…

Muhoozi is playing with fire here. The Kenya Tweets is just showing his ignorance and his blatant disregard for his own position as an army commander. Muhoozi should know better, but his to busy ego tripping and being high on his own supply. His clearly not feeling the tension in the air or the way he bruises the neighbours. It is like the reality doesn’t face him.

When you are a high ranking official, you should be careful on social media. Muhoozi should taunt the neighbours. Speak weirdly of Uncle Kagame or be vigilant about Mother Russia. Neither should he speak of a 2 week operation to invade Nairobi from Uganda. It is not like he should try get the bride price for the new Prime Minister of Italy either. However, that’s how Muhoozi operates online and he should be more offline actually. Unless, he can get handlers or civil servants to takeover from him.

The First Son, the Commander of the Land Forces and Senior Presidential Advisor. The man of the birthday bashes and of public wastage of funds. That man should be busy on the social scene. He should try to get babes and side-dishes. He should enjoy the spoils of the wealth. Muhoozi calls himself a revolutionary, but his just a cadre of a junta government. His a man who enjoys wealth and power. It isn’t like he has fought for anything or gone through the hard-knock life. No, Muhoozi gotten spoiled and is a brat with military fatigue. That’s why he can openly torture, kidnap and silence the ones who speaks ill of him. This because, he has never faced any real challenge or consequence for his actions.

I know, if I was based in Kampala and wrote this. I could be in danger of a “drone” and a “Panda Gari”, and I wouldn’t blame anyone else than myself. I wrote it and the authorities would use Computer Misuse Act, the Penal Code and whatever they could against me. That’s just the game of the state and how it operates. Muhoozi would send the Special Forces Command (SFC), CMI, ISO or anyone else.

That’s why he should be busy fathering bastards and not be involved in politics. Neither does he have the mental capacity or the wits for it. His just a ruthless and reckless man without any sort of common sense. He think his brilliant and has supporters, but the Team MK is a gig and they will wither the moment the wells are dry. The moment the cash-flow is running low and the access to funds are over. The Team MK will become history overnight… and he cannot phantom that. He thinks these moments are forever, but they are sadly on era, which is going away eventually.

In this regard, he has no charisma or personality worthy of anything. It is like he needs an orator to give him lessons. We saw how he was speaking on stage on the birthday bashes. We know his not built for that. That’s why he rather be in the background and incite violence there. Because, his not able or capable to narrate in front of a crowd.

That’s why my advice to Muhoozi is to use his mind, assets and the leverage he currently has. To show his manhood and eat. He has the opportunity now as his father is still in power. Muhoozi has the options of socialites and the prestige of his name. They will not linger around him when his a relic of the past. No, they will be around him now. He got the bank and the power. His maybe professing love for his wife now and then. But there are already rumours of woman he has been with.

So, Muhoozi should act out now. Not come with threats of war or conflict. He should be more silent and in the wind. Though he thinks greatly of himself. Maybe if he was busy trying to flirt and make-out. He maybe wouldn’t have time to cause a stir online. That way he would loose his steam and energy. We would live more peaceful and he would be more fulfilled…

We never know, but maybe someone whose a real socialite who could have done some magic on Muhoozi. Peace.

Opinion: Is it cool that Muhoozi spread harmful propaganda and act scandalous as an officer?

When someone is a Lieutenant General and the Commander of Land Forces in the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF), you would think that person or fella would be of sound mind. That person who is the third ranking official and army commander would be a solid person. However, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga is acting all out on Twitter. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs must be worried to go to the Office. They have to downplay and just say it’s the First Son acting out of spite nad cannot manage his Waragin. Whatever it is… it is not a good.

Just to put things in perspective, here is two articles from the UPDF Act of 2005 that could be issued and invoked in the sense of what Lt. Gen. Muhoozi is doing on Twitter. His spreading dangerous or harmful propaganda. Secondly, these sorts of actions can only be seen as a scandalous conduct by an officer. It isn’t like Lt. Gen. Muhoozi is a nobody and have no say. His the son of the President and third ranking commander. When you have that in your shoulders you should act accordingly, but that’s apparently to much to ask…

137. Spreading harmful propaganda

(1) A person subject to military law who spreads harmful propaganda, commits an offence and is, on conviction, where there is failure of operation or loss of life, liable to suffer death or, in any other case, liable to life imprisonment.

(2) For the purposes of this section, “spreading harmful propaganda” means—

(a) discouraging other soldiers from carrying out an operation;

(b) speculation about an operation;

(c) making oral or written statements ill of the Defence Forces or of the Government not being constructive criticism; or

(d) spreading false stories intended to undermine support for or morale of members of the Defence Forces or to incite support for or boost morale of the enemy” (UPDF Act, 2005).

145. Scandalous conduct by officers, etc

(1) An officer who behaves in a scandalous manner unbecoming of an officer, commits an offence and is, on conviction, liable to suffer dismissal from the Defence Forces with or without disgrace.

(2) For the purposes of this section, “scandalous conduct” means the personal conduct of an officer which is generally against public order, expectations and morality, whether or not the conduct directly or indirectly affects others” (UPDF Act, 2005).

Here just a some copied tweets from the Lt. Gen.:

It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, 2 weeks to capture Nairobi” – Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga (03.10.2022).

I’m happy that members of our district in Kenya, have responded enthusiastically to my tweet. It’s still 2 weeks to Nairobi!” – Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga (03.10.2022).

After our army captures Nairobi, where should I live? Westlands? Riverside?” – Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga (03.10.2022)

General Hannibal Barca narrowly missed capturing Rome 2000 years ago. I shall capture it with cows and love” – Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga (03.10.2022).

If he hadn’t been the first son and part of the First Family he wouldn’t be able to get off the hook. Anyone else speaking like this or writing this with an official title would be in trouble. We people have caught charges with the Computer Misuse Act and he could have been in that realm too. However, as an Army Commander, he beholden to the UPDF Act and should act within those stipulations. Nevertheless, we know his above the law, but I just need to remind the UPDF that there are articles in the law, which could have been used against him. Especially, in the sense of his words his spewing out on Twitter. Peace.

Opinion: No one is safe – when the authorities can take you in for “guilt” by association

The “drones” or “Panda Gari’s” never left the Republic. It is clear that abductions, kidnappings, keeping people detained incommunicado, torturing and also extra judicial killing is far from over. The authorities does it in broad daylight, they do it in the middle of the day. They come unannounced and without warrants, take away people and their remaining family or friends are shocked.

This can happen because the family is in exile, associated with the “wrong” political party or has some sort “questionable” behaviour. There can be “intelligence” gathered against the person, but nothing has been in the courts. None of the charges or the reasons to apprehend, abduct or kidnapped has been proven or tested. It is only on a hunch and possibly by association with someone. That’s all it takes and there is no other justification for doing so.

This is being done by the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI), Special Forces Command (SFC), The Flying Squad (Uganda Police Force) or Internal Security Organization (ISO). All of them are doing at different times to various of people. It is just so commonly happening. The only reason why we know about it is because people leak videos and messages from “loved-ones” or family members who has been “taken-in”.

The amount of this practice is hard to figure. The numbers fluctuate and the accuracy is hard to know. However, with the lack of oversight and no one been able to look into the practices of “safe-houses”. You just know the state has more facilities where they are keeping “prisoners” or “people of interest”. As they are held without their legal rights or after the 48 hours window to be taken to court to be processed. Because, the entities and the security agencies doing it is operating on a flimsy basis. There is little to no “intelligence” or “proof of criminal activity”. If the security agencies had it. They could have produced warrants and justification for the action in the first place.

The ones that is amazed by this have clearly lost a step. This has been done so deliberately over the years. In such a manner, that the state is now and then forced to pay damages to people captured without a legal basis. That’s why the Courts are forced to so, because the laws are stipulated in that way and the state has to fork out funds. This is for a reason and it happens too. The ones that is fortunate enough to challenge the kidnapping, torture, pain and suffering, which was caused on them by brutal force.

This is the legacy that the National Resistance Movement will leave behind. The acts of the CMI, SFC, Flying Squad, ISO and others will be things that has tarnished its reputation. Everyone knows they are doing it and they cannot run away from it. They have their Argentina House and other facilities that does it. There is no way to run away from it now.

There is no clever spin or sort of reasoning that can suggest otherwise. These actions will remain as dubious and be seen as deliberate acts of vengeance. They are not only done on political leaders, activists and random bystanders. It is also done on people by association and connected by blood. They haven’t even done anything, but their kin did a decision either in absentia, in exile or are already captured themselves. That’s how the state operates and they are not even hiding it. Peace.

Opinion: The NRM will miss the DGF

Now that’s it apparent that the Democratic Governance Facility (DGF) is closing in December 2022. This after baseless accusations and demeaning insults from the His Excellency President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni ahead of the General Election in 2021. Certainly, he that to control the narratives and in general ensure to silence his critics. While the DGF only did what it always has done, which is to support over 30 CSOs/NGOs who works on governance and civil education, which could have strengthen the society at large.

That’s why the closure of DGF will not only hurt a 100 people who has worked directly in the DGF. No, it will hurt the over 30 CSOs/NGOs who was directly funded by the DGF. Also, government entities and structures, which was also funded by the DGF. The DGF over the last five years has ensured a circulation of Shs. 15 trillion shillings. That’s a substantial amount of currency and monies that are taken out of rotation, which would be there to get domestic revenue for the state and ensure livelihoods of plenty. This will hurt service providers and those who is bound by contracts to the DGF and the entities it provided funds for. It is really compelling the damage the National Resistance Movement (NRM) has done here and it will feel it in 2023.

We know things was bad when the President suspended the DGF in February 2021. While he has lifted the suspension in June 2022. The DGF will not continue now and the regime will feel the losses. Just like the DGF together with NIMD used to support IPOD. Now, there are several other entities that is losing out. That will hurt the government and it’s institutions at large, but we know the President isn’t concerned about it.

The donors who made the agreement with Government of Uganda (GoU) to create the DGF in 2011, which happens to be Austria, Denmark, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the European Union might seek other partners or places to fund. Since, they are not welcomed or has the mechanisms to ensure development goals are met. Because, the donors has again to report to their citizens and taxpayers for the usage of funds. Which means they cannot just waste money and not prove any sort of value for money. That is squandered here, because the DGF was an organization and an umbrella organization, which kept it all organized and good oversight over it.

We know the national budget still needs external funding sources, though the bloated budgets are projecting more domestic revenue by any given year. Though there are common practice of deficits of funds, which leads to more borrowing, either domestically or by other sources. Meaning, the spiral of debts are growing and the nature of financing is becoming more dire. Since, the state has to pay interests and pay old debts to keep up with the programs. Certainly, the state or the republic has no plans to configure or has a back-up for the loss of DGF funding. No, it has lived on these funds for years and thinks the donors are gullible to return the favour anyway.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) has gambled a lot of people’s futures here. The current day-to-day operations of both government entities and CSOs/NGOs will be hurting for a long time. They will not have payroll or be able to keep up with contracts, which was signed a time back. We will see both local government and NGOs cry out. Especially, when the DGF finally close and leave.

It won’t be that easy for the donors of the DGF just to donate or use funds in Uganda after this. They have had mechanisms and organizations, which have followed statutes and means of oversight. That is needed and gives good basis for them to continue to donate in the Republic. However, when that is now gone and cease to operate. The NRM with it’s baseless attacks and wanting to interfere. Has ensured this loss. They will feel the pinch and the loss of domestic revenue through this. They might not consider it right now. Neither the ramifications of the CSOs/NGOs, but their activities and such has ensured livelihoods of lots of people. That’s why this is biting the hand that feeds you. Without having any sort of back-up or other revenue to ensure the longevity of the partners of DGF, which are getting hurt by this.

The IPOD is just one of them, but there are 30 CSOs/NGOs and a few government entities that is losing out too. That’s where there will be shortfall in 2023 and beyond. Unless, the Government of Uganda is able to talk and negotiate again with donors to create another body to have similar functions. Which I doubt, because, why do that? When you have seen how the NRM and the President has acted towards the DGF? Peace.

Opinion: The “drones” never left

The “Drones” or the Panda Gari’s never ceased their operations. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) have only reconfigured things and made it their own. The same resistance group and rebellion, that promised freedom and liberty. Alas, security for all and no fear of sudden arrests, which would happen according to law. However, with the time that has withered and its now obvious that this was a lie.

The NRM wants to rule on intimidation, fear and strike vicious vengeance towards the ones that is defying it. That’s why people are ending up missing. Cheiftancy of Military Intelligence (CMI) is known for suddenly abducting, keeping people incommunicado and some even end up dead.

It is various of authorities who does this activity, not only the CMI, even if that is the one who is most recognized for it. The army own branched Special Forces Command (SFC) has been doing and so has other agencies like Internal Security Organization (ISO). It is not like the Uganda Police Force (UPF) or Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) haven’t worked in tandem on this.

There is a reason why “safe-houses” exists and they are used for keeping people unknowingly. They are there, usually tortured and battered. The authorities using violent means, which are supposed to break the spirit and get them to tell stories. However, this is only showing the brutal side of the government. As these people are detained, tortured and in harms way without any due process. The civilian are taken there and kept without warrants or court order. They are not deemed felons or people who has breached any statute or law. These people just happens to be caught, captured and be maligned for a crime they didn’t do.

That’s the sort of activity the Parliament is condoning, but never acting upon. No, the government isn’t stopping it. The Parliament haven’t been allowed to investigate and the authorities will only give progress or cliff-notes on the few that is mentioned in Plenary Sessions. The vans are coming to a street near you and someone is going to be at the mercy of the law.

When someone is saying it’s hard to spot the difference between a bloody gang and the people running the “drones”. That is saying something about how they operate. There is the same sort of acts that goons or street thugs do. They come silently and strike powerfully. The victim can be taken brutally away from the location and be kept at unknown location indefinitely.

With the usage of these means, it is hard to separate who is criminal and who is law enforcement. It is the same sort of violent approach and it’s no difference then in Amin’s time, which Museveni has said to be different too. He is actually using the same means and intimidation. His security organizations are using similar means and they not even concealing it. That’s why the Penal Code haven’t been revised and the authorities have the same colonial laws to pin civilians in. Heck, the same government is using military court to detain and charge civilians. That is just showing how far the authorities has taken it. There is no boundaries and the state is willing to do everything to silence the ones in its way.

The drones never left. They were prevalent in the year and months in advance of the 2021 elections. They have been active since then too, but now they are targeting more people. It is happening so often and with such haste. You know the government is trying to do a point. Just like it did with the Flying Squad and the Black Mambas. Things are just coming back and we can rest assured that the LDUs will soon kick-it off too.

This sort of government don’t come in peace, but it comes in resounding viciousness and no one is left untouched. That’s the justice and liberty that the NRM serves the public. You have to be careful. One day it might be you. Just because you were associated with the wrong people at the wrong time or the CMI/SFC has grudges against people like you. Peace.

Opinion: Museveni’s deflection on the EACOP…

I spent 12 years studying English and one of the words I picked up in those years is insufferable. Some of these people(EU MPs) are insufferable. You(EU MPs) need to control yourself not to explode.(They are) so shallow, so egocentric and so wrong that they think they know everything broadcasting their ignorance all over the place but they should calm down. This is a wrong battleground for them” (…) “We don’t take kindly to arrogance and that’s why we spent so many years sorting out issues with arrogant people. The plan will be implemented according to schedule. I hope our partners join us firmly and advise them. When you go to the European Union parliament these are just young girls. A young girl is lecturing me what to do in Uganda! I think somebody should counsel those young people” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (27.09.2022)

No one should expect that President Museveni would held himself accountable or be concerned with the grievances in the European Union Parliament Motion “JOINT MOTION FOR A RESOLUTION on violations of human rights in Uganda and Tanzania linked to investments in fossil fuels projects” which has caused issues since 14th September 2022.

We know that the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) and the exploiting of petroleum in the Lake Albertine basin is key for the President. This industrial enterprise and agreements are a life-line for his reign. The currency coming from this has to be a slush-fund and direct funds to ensure longevity at this point. Since, he has no direct support or direct donors who will fund him in the same of which they did in 1990s or early 2000s. That’s why the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and the government have a debt deficit cycle, which is destroying the economy. Only Petro-Dollar can save it and possibly get enough revenue to stop the downward spiral created over the years.

However, no one should believe that the Petro-Dollars or the EACOP will be beneficial for the Republic. If it has been sincere and honestly operating, the whole enterprise, the businesses and the agreements would have been transparent. Secondly, the grievances which was reflected in the motion haven’t been discussed or addressed by the President. That’s the arrogance of Museveni himself showing.

President Museveni isn’t talking about the environmental damages or problems the EACOP is creating. Neither is he talking about the forced evictions or the human rights violations either. That doesn’t concern him. We know this all about “his oil” and the oil development to make his bank-account pregnant. The final heist and the biggest slush-fund ever to President for Life.

The ones believing President Museveni is building and developing the petroleum industry out of the kindness of his heart. I hate to tell you, but this is all for selfish reasons. His doing it to earn money himself and is indifferent about the citizens itself. He will have a buck-load of cash and the costs will be burdened on the next generation. Museveni isn’t in this to do good and he never was. That’s why other industries are depleted, privatized and destroyed over the years in his reign.

It is interesting that his pinning the blame on the EU Parliament. When he doesn’t even see what they said and what the Motion is stating. It’s like that doesn’t matter and like Museveni isn’t reading the room. There are already banks backing off and the IMF/World Bank isn’t interesting in it either. The timing of building the EACOP is wrong. He should have initiated this a decade earlier or so. However, he was busy with other schemes at the time…

President Museveni isn’t saving face here. His just deflecting and not taking into account the Motion itself. That’s apparently beneath him, but he should be concerned by this. They are just proving what sort of man he is and is not willing to see it. He rather rule with his ruthless acts and hope no one every tests him. However, the EU Parliament isn’t beholden to him or have to live by his words. They are independent that way and therefore, he just have to act this way. He can rebuke them… but that doesn’t help his case either. Total is European and French, so that company is bound by the laws and regulations in Europe. Therefore, Museveni cannot just deny the EU Parliament, because they are the ones that are the biggest developers in it too.

That’s why the next moves of Total will be important and if they will defy the EU Parliament itself. This will be followed and we don’t know how that one will go. What we do know… is that its harder for them and banks are not willing to loan development funds to it. In this regard, the Ugandan President should be more humble and be more friendly. However, he prefer being on the warpath, than being a person who reflects on the reality and adjust to it. Peace.
