Statement by the Secretary-General on the passing of former Secretary-General Kofi Annan (18.08.2018)

Kofi Annan was a guiding force for good.  It is with profound sadness that I learned of his passing.  In many ways, Kofi Annan was the United Nations. He rose through the ranks to lead the organization into the new millennium with matchless dignity and determination.

Like so many, I was proud to call Kofi Annan a good friend and mentor. I was deeply honoured by his trust in selecting me to serve as UN High Commissioner for Refugees under his leadership. He remained someone I could always turn to for counsel and wisdom — and I know I was not alone. He provided people everywhere with a space for dialogue, a place for problem-solving and a path to a better world.  In these turbulent and trying times, he never stopped working to give life to the values of the United Nations Charter. His legacy will remain a true inspiration for all of us.

My heartfelt condolences to Nane Annan, their beloved family, and all who mourn the loss of this proud son of Africa who became a global champion for peace and all humanity.

Museveni State of the Nation Address 2016: Guns and Glamour, but nothing worth listening too…

museveni and his gun

“I’ve been dealing with guns a long time, I know the cost of an AK47 in China and Yugoslavia. You can’t cheat me of that” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni

I should listen and care about what President Museveni says in the State of the Nation Address today, well, I don’t he will proclaim to be the most genuine democrat, the grand master who have made such progress, and on the way to middle Income Country. He will proclaim the soon added revenue of Petroleum Money. That he and his cronies are fighting corruption, while buying suits to vote in Hon. Oulanyah for Deputy Speaker in Parliament.

He will say that Uganda is the epitome democracy, where we all can learn from and where Human Rights are respected. When he speaks of democracy is that his words are law and his action becomes regulation of state. That has secured the nation and boundaries. The level of growth, the growing levels of cash crops like Coffee, Tea and others are steady growing.

State of Nation 2016 Uganda

“IN PROTEST: Opposition MPs Allan Ssewanyana (Makindye West) & Mubarak Munyagwa (Kawempe South) walk out of the hall after being ordered by the speaker to put down their placards. The placards had words “Release Besigye”” (Daily Monitor, 31.05.2016).

As he continues he will speculate and say that it’s the citizens or politician that is the blame for the corrupt behavior, not him or his allies. Because the resistance will clear that out in the Army, civil servants or politicians; Well, he have run the nation for 30 years, but still have issues with the same as when he came in. Now the name has changed, it isn’t Yugoslavia anymore. President Museveni either buys from Serbia, Montenegro or Croatia for instance, but that European Politics isn’t important. The place only matter as long as he gets his weapons to a fair price. And can use them against opposition or made-up opponent in the land. Maybe even for some of African Union Peacekeeping missions.

Not forget every-time he speaks he have to come with close advice for small acre farmers who needs to handpick certain vegetables to become wealthy, as the Operation Wealth Creation and other schemes he have made and hired Gen. Salim Selah to run is the best option for the Nation.

Ugandan state is good, as long as they don’t question his government. As long as they are nodding to his words of wisdom; because his vision and his changes is the healthy ones, not what the other people they are talking nonsense, they are not resistance fighters! You need Resistance Fighters and need Bush War ego to run Uganda and President Museveni have that.

Just as he was saying this today:

“Some commercial banks and money lenders use unethical methods to steal Ugandans, we will deal with them” (…)”There is the problem of Government not paying arrears of private companies that supplied to Government” (…)”Companies that supplied to the Government of South Sudan but were not paid, I’ve already directed government to help them” – Yoweri Kagtuta Museveni

Because it is not the Ugandan Government who is the problem and how they are handling their procurement or the use of money, it is the banks that are the problem in Uganda. If not there are examples of South Sudan Government that have not made amendments with their imports from Uganda. So the President Museveni and his regime have to clear the slate for their misgivings, because he doesn’t make anything wrong, it is everybody else. He is never at fault and that is consistant with every move he have ever done. It was Idi Amin who was the problem, it was Obote who was the Issue. Now it is the Western Powers and Aid that is the issue, while he doesn’t complain with new-money and aid from South Korea or others as long as they doesn’t put strings on the money!

I will not release the whole State of Nation this year, because, why bother? He is a blatant totalitarian ruler, who uses his police state to apprehend opposition and detain his arch-enemy in Luzira while he proclaims democracy. A man who does that does not deserve to get his voice and his whole speech delivered online. That is waste of energy, right?

So he would speak of what I talked about and I found some wonderful quotes that shows the arrogance and the rigid mind of Museveni of 2016. Who has all the answers and blames others when the system doesn’t work, even if he has been behind the project since 1986. That is the irony and sadness of the matter. Peace.

Crime in the Crimean

Everybody who hasn’t lived under stone since 2013 has gotten with the news of demonstrations going on in Kiev in Ukraine. Ukraine who been split by two parts, the one who want a close connection to Russia and the one who want to get closer to EU. So there we have it! Viktor Yanukovich who has been ousted before is now in the wind in Russia. Last time was the Orange revolution in 2004. So ten years later it happened again!

This time Vladimir Putin the president Russia who was using the bargain chip of the vast issues of economic downturn in Ukraine. So there is an issue where Ukraine has a downturn and is borrowing in an up scaling rate. Russia would offer this money if they passed on the deal for a step towards getting a EU membership. That wasn’t acceptable for Putin or Russia. This is in the close hinterland of Moscow. Where famous battles of ancient Russia have fought and had made history there.

Ukraine has a sovereign right to the area. The only issue that Russia has rights there is that they have had agreement with the Ukraine government to have a navy-base fleet in the Black sea. This is the best place considering most other harbors in Russia would be frozen for a long time of the year.

We can all learn by history of action rash. The way of the future madness it can lead into. The way military units move into the region. The Ukraine is unstable because of fresh leadership and ousted of the government of Yanukovich. Putin is fairing the safety of the navy-base and warships.

That USA is calling this 18th century ways of acting. It’s kind of unreasonable of the country that has attacked countries without caring about the UN resolutions or the safety council accommodation. John Kerry attacking Russia is a bit of throwing a stone in glasshouse. USA went into Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya. Only a few times US has been right in aggressive military action is as recent “white” war of Balkans during the 90s. Now were in present time after a period of Bush wars and giving other countries the clean-up missions that they couldn’t do: in the likes of AMISOM mission in Somalia and the MONUC mission in Democratic Republic of Congo.

So here we have it! Putin who has been just finished a polished and beautiful Olympics in Sochi. Then he tried to make a positive impression on the world. Now, we are here where Russia is going into the Ukraine with a force to just secure … the navy-base in Crimea for its warship fleet and also excusing itself for the Russian inhabitants. We have heard sorry excuse before by other power in the 20th century it’s was a certain Nazi Germany who attacked parts of Poland and Czechoslovakia for its German citizens there and the League of Nations had no power to stop it or Neville Chamberlain.

It has some similarities we all now, but doesn’t have the same ending or the same pretext. We’re just in a situation where Putin has to save face and Ukraine has to do the same. Where USA and western hemisphere isn’t happy for the actions of Russia, at some point this will give other issues as well. Canada has already called back its ambassador from Moscow. The United Kingdom has already pulled itself out of the G8 meeting which was supposed to be in Sochi, Russia.

You can wash your hands clean and then call yourself guilty… Still your actions tell more than the lies you told yesterday. The same must Vladimir Putin feel today or yesterday since he order troops into the Crimean-peninsula. Mother Russia doesn’t have the rights to this. US is correct though they isn’t the right actor to talk. They have broken the same rules whenever it have pleased themselves in recent years. So if Canada or UK is attacking Russia for their actions they have more credibility then USA for the moment. Barrack Obama can talk peace, but he should instead spend time selling government cheese inside his own border then resume and judge Vladimir Putin. The French who has jumped to the Francafrique – the French Africa in this instances we talk about Cote d’Ivoire and Central African Republic. Cleaning out their own “commonwealth” or should I say: “Francafrique”.

So here we are in position where mighty people play with high stakes. So high haven’t we been in ages. The outcome can be either little or big. We can know for the moment. The people of the Crimean-peninsula are the pawns in this and it’s sad. So as outsiders we can only act with condemnation and pray for the right way out of this. This is still a crime and is a foul. If it had been a football match they would have given Russia as a player least a yellow card and maybe even warning that next action could lead to a red card! Peace.
