“They[court] actually wanted to punish the boys [SFC] for torturing Bobi Wine. I said no! no! no! This was rubbish. It was the other people [Bobiwine] who were in wrong. This was because the SFC people who are not police minded because they are used to doing other things, went to the room where the MP and other people were,they tried to box them so they boxed them. They acted in self defense and so it was in order” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 21st August 2020
Sometimes I wonder if the President would have accepted the treatment his giving others. Because, if he did. He would accept being sheltered in a safe-house, being abducted, arrested and charged for no other reasons of annoying someone. Not even being a criminal. Robert Kyagulanyi was only arrested, tortured and abducted, because he offended the President and his team. They have served him injustice and his defending it.
For someone dropping bible-verse, saying he was supposed to be a preacher. The President should know a passage from the book of Matthews. He clearly need a fresh reminder. Because, what happened in Arua and in the aftermath. Is something that shouldn’t have happened to the Arua 33 and Bobi Wine. However, he said yesterday it was fine and dandy. That shows that the grand lecturer is cruel human being who wants people ill and not saint like he proclaims to be.
Just look what the words of the scripture says:
“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets” – Matthew 7,9-12 (New International Version).
Because, when I read the defence of the torture, impunity and cruel arrests of the opposition in the post Arua By-Election. Then you know, that the President has no hear, just like Beti Kamya stated years ago.
We are seeing what Jesus is saying to his disciples in the book of Matthew. It states that you should do unto others as you wish to be treated yourself. In this regard, does the President wants to be abducted, tortured and charged with treason for campaigning in a By-Election. That is what I get from the President.
I don’t want the President to get the treatment Bobi Wine got after Arua. I don’t want a single person to get that. However, if we are learning anything from the scriptures, then he wouldn’t have defended it. It shows a sinister side of the President and his allies. That they will defend it and stand by the torturing of a fellow human being.
So, the President wants to offer someone stones instead of the bread his asking for. He rather give a snake, instead of a fish.
Museveni, would you accept that the Special Force Command would storm one of your homes, raid it and abduct you. Family members, lawyers and such not knowing about your location for hours. Also, tortured and injected with poison by the law enforcement before charged with treason for being part of a by-election. Is that cool to you? Would you accept that?
I’m thinking, you as a man wouldn’t accept this. You would scream “hell no” and move on. Still, a a man you accept the fate of others. As a President you should condemn and charge men who does this to others. Alas, we know you promote those … Peace.
