Age Limit: The Dawn of a New Day of Destruction, with Soldiers lurking within the Chambers!

Dr Sam Lyomoki: “since you have suspended the rule that governs debate on what rule should the debate proceed?”

Speaker Rebecca Kadaga: “just go on and debate”

We know that the 10th Parliament already has Uganda People’s Defence Force Members of Parliament, but these are generals and high-ranking officials elected there by some sort of function. Which is needed group to secure the National Resistance Movement will and overpower of the minority in the Parliament.

However, as it followed yesterday’s chaos. It has not been any better or faired any smoother in the chambers today. Again, it is not important what been discussed today or which laws that are amended. Even if it is talking about longer extensions of terms for Members of Parliament and by all means the President. This all about the will of the President, who wishes to rule for life. No matter how hectic, how foolish or ignorant of the laws he created in 1990s. There are no bounds to his self-inflicting wounds.

Today there are signs of unarmed police officers in the chambers and also de facto soldiers hanging around eating and enjoying themselves. All of that created massive chaos. So the discussions or debate got silenced. Even several of MPs tried to fight for the microphone. There has been mentioned that it was 300 soldiers within the chapel of the Parliament, fully equipped with arms. Clearly with intention of creating tension. They succeeded.

The Parliament for the second day in the morning was cancelled or adjourned until 2 PM! They do not like to do it the silent way. It has to be a mess, with suspensions and with soldiers. It is much at stake, which strangers has to be in the chambers and security officers of all kinds has to wander in the chambers of the parliament.

We can just wonder what is next. This battle for life presidency is not over and will take its toll and make people wounded. Either in spirit or in their hearts. Certainly, the National Resistance Movement and their President cannot be giddy. This is moving slowly and showing their ignorance of their own chambers, their own National Assembly, just so their master and leader can rule for life. Is that the price for his rule? Therefore, he can destroy the sanctity of the chambers. Make the assembly who creates laws into a place of heresy and make it ungodly? Is that the will of President Museveni?

There is very or little honor left in this men. If there was any, the NRM regime are ready to swallow all the venom, so Museveni can live and die as President. Not caring about the effect or the message, they are sending. The soldiers used the gates between the President’s Office and the Parliament to access the chambers. Clearly, in violation of the order from Speaker to seal of that way. If so, it might just been for the show and they knew all along that they planned to do it this way.

Let the ill-advised saga continue. Peace.

Opinion: Mzee apparently turned a bit honest!

Museveni Debate16

“I am not an employee. I hear some people saying that I am their servant; I am not a servant of anybody. I am a freedom fighter; that is why I do what I do. I don’t do it because I am your servant; I am not your servant. I am just a freedom fighter; I am fighting for myself, for my belief; that’s how I come in. If anybody thinks you gave me a job, he is deceiving himself. I am just a freedom fighter whom you thought could help you also” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (Muzoora, 2017).

The 1986 coup d’état goes full circle; it goes into the wind, get distilled and has been repackaged more than Destiny’s Child best of hits. It’s been sold in so many ways and to so many outlets, that the stories of the battles and reasons for the coup to even happen. I hate that I have to bring up 1986 again. But it’s because the whole legacy and reason for the Presidency of Museveni, is because of his NRA/NRM battle to supremacy in the 1980s. Since Museveni wanted to be different and have a democratic government compared to the predecessors in the republic.

Still, now he sounds more like them and acts like them. He uses the military against them and uses political positions to buy of opposition and even own cronies. Museveni depletes banks and economy. Certainly, together with election rigging and having added economic interest rates, these sorts of significant outbursts prove what is wrong in the Republic.

President Museveni is now showing his true character. Museveni is saying he isn’t a civil servant. That means that he shouldn’t be the Executive, be the Commander-in-Chief or His Excellency. He should be in the bush as rebel. Not be in power and not head of government. Because government is to serve the public with the usage of taxes and using public coffers to deliver public goods and working government institutions that serves the citizens. The government is there for the citizens, not the government for the government itself.

So President Museveni can charge his guns, take his tanks and his jet-planes to scare the hell out of the public during the elections. The rigging might make the President forget his role, as if he we’re legitimately elected he might feared the public and citizens more. But when the public fear him and his guns than they don’t need to have a civil servant, however they have a thief-in-command instead.

President Museveni has invented the “Presidential Handshake” and given way to all sort of non-governance behaviour. As he has tried to get friends and culpable men in power around his neighbourhood, so he has installed and helped keeping totalitarian and despots in Rwanda, Burundi and Democratic Republic of Congo. He has used support of guns to get Paul Kagame as President in Rwanda, sent military support after the third term fraudulent election of President Pierre Nkurunziza, also helped to elect both President Joseph Kabila in the DRC. These men have not proven that they care about democratic societies or the trust in the governance.

Not that Museveni has cared, as he put’s family and loyal cronies in all sort of government institutions, instead of getting the educated or the ones who does it as professions, with lacking level of staff, with massive amounts of ghost workers and forged spending, allocated funds misused and transaction without proof. These is ordinary after 30 years of rule, as rampant corruption, parliamentarian greed and government mismanagement. It is not strange that President Museveni isn’t an civil servant.

President Museveni is the head-crook in charge, the head thief who robs the Republic with passion and for the freedom of his family and cronies, nobody else. Peace.
