Press Release

12TH March 2012

NRM IMAGINARY REBEL GROUPS EXPOSES MUSEVENI DICTATORSHIP NAKED

1.   The Uganda People’s Congress would like to express its outrage at the behavior of the government of Uganda and state security agencies for harassing, intimidating and framing members of the opposition political parties especially UPC members for allegedly engaging in rebel activities.

 

2.   After the UPC defeated the Yoweri Museveni’s UPM in the 1980 general elections, the defeated candidate did not opt to use civilized and lawful means to change the well deserved victory of UPC. Instead he opted for rebellion and violence to kill the UPC and particularly multipartism in Uganda. The districts that comprise the Luwero triangle are still littered with the skulls of UPM’s / NRA’s military mis advneture.

 

3.   For nearly two decades UPC led the struggle to dismantle the UPM (now called NRM) one party-cum- military dictatorship. The UPC used open methods to challenge the NRA/NRM’s stronghold on our motherland. We used the civic means, diplomatic channels, open but peaceful protests, media campaigns and defiance and the courts of law to expose the NRM fraudulent dictatorship and ensure a return to multiparty dispensation

 

4.   The NRM Mafias prior, during and after the 2011 general elections has been trying to link UPC to several rebellions in the Country particularly LRA. They failed to substantiate their claims and now have adopted mafia strategies of persecuting some UPC members whom they alleging are involved in rebel activities. The several arrest effected by NRM militarist is a big discount to democracy and economic prosperity of the Youth of these Country.

 

5.   These arrests are not accidental but are a well calculated move by the NRM government operatives to implicate the opposition members in imaginary rebel groups created by the government to destroy the credibility of political organizations. The NRM government operatives are professional manufacturers of rebel groups and mafia gangsters as evidenced by the creation of the Force Obote Back Again (FOBA), the National Democratic Alliance, Holy Spirit Movement 11 led by Sarah Nabukonde in Mbale, Peoples Redemption Army (PRA),Uganda Freedom Front and now Uganda National Front Army (UNFA) and Uganda People’s Federal Alliance led by Diaspora-based Lawrence Kiwanuka

 

6.   The timing of the arrest and creation of these imaginary rebel groups, the Uganda National Front Army (UNFA) and Uganda People’s Federal Alliance led by Diaspora-based Lawrence Kiwanuka exposes the NRM hidden agenda to crackdown on the opposition at the time when the Commonwealth team has finished its verification of Uganda’s capacity to host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Conference. This dubious and notorious agenda are:

                                    i.        To have ineffective and weak opposition parties who only exist on paper in our law books and during election years, without capacity to organize and mobilize the people.

                                   ii.        To generate fear in the population by arresting citizens indiscriminately on grounds that they are members of this imaginary rebel group called Uganda National Front Army (UNFA) and Uganda People’s Federal Alliance led by Diaspora-based Lawrence Kiwanuka

                                  iii.        To cripple the entire democratization process so that we revert to single party rule. President Museveni was forced to open up political space in his own words by donors and investors. He does not believe in genuine functional multiparty democracy where there is true competition on a level playing field, that’s why his government has refused to operationalize article 72 of the constitution to regulate and finance parties.

                                vii.        The NRM government should be the last to implicate UPC members in rebel activities owing to our historical track record in this country.

                              viii.        UPC brought independence through negotiations without shedding innocent blood of Ugandans.

            o     We fought for the restoration of multiparty democracy in Uganda politically and through courts of laws.

            o     UPC consistently has advocated for the resolution of the Northern Conflict using peaceful means.

            o     We have demanded for a national dialogue, the setting up of an Independent Truth and National Reconciliation Commission (ITNRC) which eventually would culminate in a National Conference to chart a way forward for our country.

            o     UPC is currently participating in Inter Party Committee dialogue, a forum to build confidence and national trust to open a way to solve our country’s problems. The Museveni Government is undermining this process.

            o     On the other hand, NRM shot its way to power spilling innocent blood in Luwero and it has maintained itself in power for the last 20years through more violence, intimidation, wars(internal and external) and more bloodshed.

 

7.   This subversive campaign will not deter UPC from contesting the forthcoming local council elections now that the courts of law has provided a different framework as opposed to that under the so called Movement System.UPC calls upon the Youth leaders, Women leaders, District Chairmen, the Constituency Chairmen and the Branch Chairmen to actively mobilize and capture all the local council positions. UPC urges the Electoral Commission to provide guidelines early enough to political parties for these LC elections and intensify civic education for the voters. The Electoral Commission should not hurriedly and haphazardly rush these elections

 

8.   I must also inform members that as the National Youth Leader of UPC my advocacy on food security and youth adopting agriculture have yielded big as opposed to luring youth in rebellion being propagated by NRM dictatorship. In Northern and Western Uganda Youth Regional dialogues that took place on 10-12 and 16-18 Feb/2012 respectively in Arua and Mbarara for Youth leaders from seven Political Parties with each Party sending seven delegates on Job Creation, Political Participation and agenda setting, I moved a resolution for youth to adopt Agriculture as a major source of employment and promote food security, that was thunderously adopted and passed to promote economic empowerment, nothing like advocating for rebellion using force of arms.

 

9.   During the inter-party youth dialogue that took place from 23-24 at Garuga Beach Entebbe, the Youth leaders Nationally adopted to engage non-state actors particularly those in food security and agriculture since they now look at agriculture as a major source of employment and poverty eradication, therefore it would be misleading for NRM to implicate opposition youth in rebellion

10.  Finally on 29th February, I proposed alternative policies to government in agriculture in relation to youth employment that later the MPS from the ruling Party adopted and have received appreciation/compliments from those in government during the Inter Party Dialogue.

 

Conclusively, the UPC Youth are highly committed to democratic values based on our historical strategies of using peaceful means to change governments. Our UPC members who are in detention are being persecuted on the basis of their political affiliations since they are UPC’S in the eyes of the dictatorship they have committed treasonable crimes,the same persecution that I personally suffered in many forms in the hands of YOWERI MUSEVENI MAFIA DICTATORSHIP

    I think Ugandans have matured politically and can’t be taken for a ride anymore am not saying the NRM is perfect but only that it has exhibited for the last 25 or so years that they have they have their act together.
    My brother politics is a very competitive game indeed you talk about mobilising from the grass roots get out of Uganda house and go sell your programmes to the people create structures …..! address boldly the issues why your performance in the past elections have been dismal, why are you so thin on the ground etc get out of that cloud and style up the next election is only in less than 3 yrs away.!!
