UGANDANS WITH DUAL CITIZENSHIP SHOULD LEARN FROM KAREGEYA EXPERIENCE


Folks:The most despicable thing is for Uganda to be taking orders from Rwanda. Well, it is events such as this one that could lead to something bigger and hopefully better for our region. For how long does Kagame think he will terrorize DRC, Uganda and other countries? YKM may take it but TZ will not. More turbulence in the region.

Kagame has milked the genocide so far that as you point out many are now starting to say, wait a minute. But the dictator has recruited many Ugandans to do his bidding. Many in the media and even academia white wash his dictatorship on grounds that the man has delivered. My foot.

YKM should stand up to Kagame and say enough. Col. Karegeya will be buried in Uganda period. For how long is YKM going to appease dictator Kagame under the so called coalition of the willing?

Kagame’s tactics are setting up the so called coalition of the willing against SADC.

BTW, let me ask many Ugandans on this forum, if Col. Karegeya who was born in Uganda (so Ugandan by birth), and took up Rwandese citizenship does not fit the criteria to be buried in Uganda, what about many of us who have taken on American, British, Canadian, Swedish, French, Norwegian citizenship etc.? What message is YKM sending to the rest of Ugandans in the diaspora by listening to dictator Kagame? And if that is the mentality what the hell are they doing breaking up UNAA? Put simply, why does Uganda send huge delegations to waste donor and taxpayers money attending a forum of Ugandan born but now American/Canada citizens and permanent residents?

Let us be clear: irrespective of what we feel about Col. Karegeya, it is a big shame and total disgrace for YKM and Uganda to be taking orders from Rwanda/Kagame. It is actually an embarrassment. Everybody knew YKM was a nyampra of the West but Rwanda, Phew!

Something tells me that the assassination of col Karegeya could have unintended consequences that could resonate within the region.

DID ANYONE UNDERSTAND TINYEFUNZA’S SPEECH IN LONDON?


I am sorry but I expected an analysis (genesis, growth, effects, consequences, impact, projections) of Uganda’s problem from Gen Sejjusa’s statement, his proposed solution, strategies to achieve the solution. I expected to learn what FUF stands for and how it will deliver Uganda). All I learnt was his disapointment with M7, how votes are stolen by NRM and that KB won te 2006 elections. To his credit, he does say, and I agree with him entirely, that the problem of Uganda is bigger and older than M7, but he does not say what the problem is. Can somebody who understood the Gen help me?

Beti Kamya
—————————————————————–
TINYEFUNZA’S FAMOUS SPEECH AT THE LAUNCH OF FUF IN LONDON!
It is never too late to do the right thing. I stand here before you not as a saint, for that is not what my purpose is. My purpose is not to proclaim my sainthood but it is to undo the wrong I could have participated in. my second job is to contextualise for Ugandans to know what the real problem is. For defining the problem correctly, is solving the problem half way. I do not think we understand the nature of the problem and the forces that confront us as Ugandans but also as African people.

That’s the context within which that lady came. And I agree with her. I understand her. I understand her emotions and she is also right. We must confront those issues, look them straight in the face if Uganda is to heal and move forward. There should be nothing to be ashamed about what that lady was talking about. People in the north died. They did. She is not lying. How many, by who, is a matter of detail. We must confront it. This is it. This is it. But also we must know that the deaths in the north and the suffering under NRM was not the beginning of the problems of Uganda, that there is a historical context to it.

To heal is to have a broader view of where we’ve come from, where we are. There is nothing short of that. If we do not accept that, then we are in trouble. I personally, my struggle is larger than Mr Museveni’s. It is bigger because Mr Museveni is merely a representative of a tragic situation, is a representative of an experiment that has gone tragically wrong both in Africa and in our country. Museveni is merely a representative. It cannot be an accident that 50 years on after independence, those who got in in the 1950s like Ghana and Sudan and so on, that the African state is in conflict, that African peoples are the poorest in the world, that per capita it’s [Africa] the lowest in the world, that interest rates [in Africa] are the lowest in the world, violence index is the highest in the world, that balkanisation is the highest in the 54 countries of Africa. When you look at Africa, I think the German has something like three point something trillion, United States has about 15 trillion, China has about eight trillion and Africa with almost 1.6 billion has about three trillion, When you come to the economy of Africa, when you look at the biggest economies of Africa, I think South Africa is about 450 (million), Nigeria is about 415 (million), Egypt is about 200 something. They do not add up to the GDP of Texas. These are the strongest economies in the world.

When these people our friends in the West and so on when they praise Museveni’s economic miracle. Yes But in 1986 when we came [into power] our GDP in Uganda was four billion. Now it is 19 billion. 19 billion GDP is smaller than the income generated by Tesco or Microsoft which I think is about 50 billion, Uganda is 19. We don’t produce anything, we don’t sell anything. We are bulinding tarmacked roads but we are stepping on them with bare feet. We don’t transport anything on the road. So there are serious structural problems in Africa. There are serious structural problems with the African state that whichever change we may bring, it will not suffice. We need to broaden our focus on defining the enemy.

I am the only person whom you look at who has two faces of the same coin. That’s what makes me to be proud of myself. That’s what has made the FUF experiment promising because what has got to bring on board? Many people ask: “So what are you bringing that others have not tried?” We are bringing a new force, a new force with a broader appeal, a new force with a broader ideology of knowing that every African person or every Ugandan is a captive of history. We need to be freed. We need to free everyone. We need to free our people from the perception of lack of opportunity in terms of organising and mobilising deficit. Before we reach anywhere else, we need to realise that the problems of Africa; for instance if you look at Africa today and what Museveni has; you see Museveni has been a betrayal for our cause is bigger than what people think. Because [for] my personal story, when I went to the bush I was only 24 and there were something big going on. Uganda was not all rosy.

In 1962 as you remember, Uganda had got independence. Our great grandfathers had come her to London at Lancaster House and they had agreed on a constitution of 1962. They came and overthrew themselves, they were fighting against each other and overthrew themselves in 1966. Then in 1967, the independence constitution was overthrown and another constitution was brought in. That meant turmoil. Then that turmoil resulted in Idi Amin. Idi Amin devastated the country from 1971 to 1979. There had never been – there was some attempt by Ugandans in 1972 to liberate themselves but it didn’t work and we were in disarray. In 1979 if Amin had not attacked Tanzania he would maybe have ruled until his death.

So even the 1970 experiment was external engineering. It was by fault. So ever that one was not a Ugandan experience per se. It lacked the internal dynamics of a people rising up, empowering themselves ideologically, and defining their means which were applicable to their means. They were all lacking. Therefore the experiment we got in 1979 was a still bar. It resulted into more chaos; that chaos which resulted into another war. The war of the NRM.

I have a personal story. The father of my wife was murdered. He was a young barrister fresh from Cambridge University and was murdered at 28 by Idi Amin. But I can’t bear on that because if I do that, then that’s the enemy, the enemy that we must shift the poles. We must start thinking about Uganda in broader terms. We have all fallen short of the glory of God. We must start afresh.

What people don’t understand is that when serving under a bad system you become the biggest victim. They do not realise that some of us, for instance me; I have lived a life more at risk more than maybe people who have been in exile. I have not been sitting down. I tried to remove this system many times. I have scars on my body, bullets, inflicted by my own side. People don’t understand. This northern experiment you’re talking about, I was the first to resign. I opposed this experiment in 1993 during the CA. I opposed the changing of what we had agreed in the bush of ruling for four years and extending Mr Museveni. In 1996 I went further. I exposed Mr Museveni’s problems and atrocities; you can go [and check], you know what happened in parliament, against the atrocities in the north and the prolonging of the northern war by Mr Museveni. I was the first to bring it up.

If all that meant I was guilty, I would not have resigned. I even resigned against Mr Museveni. I said [to Museveni] I will not continue. My life was in danger. I almost died. I went to the Supreme Court and won and in the morning Mr Museveni went to the Supreme Court and told them ‘you must reverse’ and he reversed. So I was held captive against my will. When you’re held captive, you’re captive. You either play by the rules or you become an outlaw. Isn’t that what Mandela said?

So my regret is that I should have come out earlier on. I have no doubt about it. But what happened then, since we have a constitution and Mr Museveni can abuse us only for so long. In 2005 he changed the constitution. I was in Kimaka Commandant Staff College and I was representing the army in parliament in 2005. We were picked at night, those of us who were there, to go and vote to remove term limits. And those of us who wanted to reject, like somebody called Bogere were virtually under detention and were told we must remove term limits. There was no discussion. We went in a bus and you don’t do anything. The day I stood up and said ‘no’ you see where I am. This is the cost of trying to say ‘no’.

So it’s not so easy. You either go all the way and say ‘no’ and fight the regime like I am doing, or you play inside and ultimately you’re soiled and you wear that guilt and become part of the system. This is how bad systems destroy our people. And this is how we must free all our people. My call is that all people must be freed by understanding that they are all captive.

This is how bad governance shrives, by putting people in small groups, with smaller interests, and small organisations. Bad systems rule people in perpetuity. Walter here spoke about something important. He said in Uganda for the last 27 years, maybe what people outside may not understand, every region has opposed Museveni. There was a war in Buganda against Museveni – it was a Buganda war. There was a western war by the people in Kasese – the Kasese war; there was a war in eastern Uganda – the eastern war; there was a war in West Nile – it was a West Nile war; then there was a war in northern Uganda – it is a northern war.

You must reject that. That’s what FUF says. We must have a Ugandan movement to fight dictatorship. That’s what we bring on board. What we bring on board is the galvanisation of our people’s general consciousness – the mass movement of people to get to a critical mass to free themselves. That’s my mission – no less, no more. Where does it start? It starts by me admitting I am wrong and say I am sorry. But I must move forward. I must move forward. I must not be captive of a bad past because the bad past would have won. I will defeat it by defeating the wrongs of the past.

Therefore stand with me, Ladies and Gentleman, and know that you have a serious fighter. I have three scars from Idi Amin. Some of you here were with me at university. I started fighting Idi Amin as a young boy. And I have other scars. I thought I was doing something better for Africa, for Uganda. I was betrayed. We thought when we were in the bush what Mr Museveni had come to promise as a fundamental change – what we had in mind was to fundamentally change the African colonial state, remove the bottlenecks of Africa – these competing armies.

You know the military expenditure in Africa – right now in East Africa, there is an arms race, huge arms race among East African countries. Who’s the enemy? Whom are they arming each other against? Against their own people. All the money instead of going into development it is in an arms race. This is the nature – the tiny states of Africa which are unviable. The lack of integration. We thought that Mr Museveni would actualise our integration of East African states, the markets – to remove the perpetual fear of military attacks across these artificial borders – of creating bigger trading enclaves – of freeing our people. He let us down. Instead, he started building his personal bay? To the extent of bringing in his family, his wife, and his children – some things which are so decadent I don’t know in which century they belong, maybe the 12th? I don’t know and you don’t know. And how in this 21st century can somebody bring his wife to be a minister and then his son to [command the army]? They are so decadent.

So the new thing that FUF has done is uniting our people. The people of the media you should not lose the significance of that. That lady (the one who had earlier interrupted the meeting to protest against what Gen Sejusa did while commanding troops there) was from northern Uganda and the people who were trying to stop her were from northern Uganda, not western Uganda. This is a fundamental shift (clapping). It was people from northern Uganda protecting me and saying we want to move forward. Thank you very much. Thank you.

So what is the way forward? There are many people asking us: “Therefore, are you going into elections or are you going to fight?” The general approach is simple. We have realised what is going on in Uganda and everyone now agrees that we must have change. Our job is to cause this change. There are means that have been provided by the constitution but Mr Museveni has subverted them. He has changed the constitution. He has removed term limits which meant to account for power. If peaceful means therefore, which are within the constitution say, even our friends will have to tell us. We as a people, do we have a right to be free or not? Should we be prisoners or should we free ourselves?

This is the answer. The choice is Mr Museveni’s. To free Uganda or we shall force him to free ourselves. Therefore before I go to stand, we must have the Uganda we want which is capable of organising an election, which is capable of uniting a people and capable of operating outside this kind of fear. You cannot organise an election in these types of conditions. He must stop misusing the military. He must stop buying the elections. He must stop violence. No I don’t think I can participate in Mr Museveni’s elections. Never – because I know how it works.

Kizza Besigye won by the way in 2006 – I can as well give you another testimony (laughter and prolonged clapping). In 2006 Besigye won by maybe 69 per cent. Mr Museveni as an incumbent got something like 50 something. By the time an African incumbent gets 50 something you know he has already lost. So it’s not even in debate. But how was it stolen?(laughter and prolonged clapping).

We organised another electoral commission of intelligence at Basiima House and all results from the electoral commission would pass through our electoral commission and it is our results that we would push through to the [official] electoral commission. How can you win in that type of situation? Yes. I must say it all now because I am a new man (prolonged laughter and clapping). Yes. We did it. Yes (more laughter and clapping from audience).

So of course it is a waste of time. It is deceiving our people. And Mr Museveni has no democratic credentials – has never had them. I was with him in the bush. I have been with him all along. I have told you through all my history. I have stood up to these undemocratic tendencies. You hear some of our neighbours are in the ICC (International Criminal Court). Mr Museveni should go to the ICC like [Charles] Taylor (former President of Liberia). You know Taylor went to the ICC because of his role in Sierra Leone. So he (Museveni) participated in that work in Kenya. That’s why the people of Kenya uprooted the rail lines going to Uganda. Parts of Nairobi, Kibera and Kisumu. They knew that Uganda played a part. It shouldn’t be Mr Ruto (Kenya’s deputy president) alone, Mr Museveni should go [to The Hague]. (Someone in the audience asks what about the role Museveni played in the Democratic Republic of Congo) Right now Uganda has to pay US$10 billion to the Congo government for him (Museveni) and his family stealing gold and timber of Congo and diamonds, and shamelessly we shall pay as a government.

You know with the late Garang (former leader of south Sudan’s government), I can give you this story. They were going for a referendum. This is how he fell off with Mr Museveni. The leadership in south Sudan know. So Mr Museveni tells Mr Garang: “We must win this referendum at any cost.” And then Mr Museveni said: “You know I can give you two million of my Bakiga, they go there and fix things for us. But the idea [for Museveni] was to have a strong hold in south Sudan. Bakiga is a tribe in Uganda (a man in the audience shouts: I am one of them). How can such a person like that be a democrat? How? How can he be? And that was the fallout when it started.

So my answer is we need to look at this whole experience of elections and the world must also understand. But also the world must understand that the geopolitical machinations of Museveni are a fassad. They are a lie. Because Museveni is not Uganda. He is a representative. We are the people who can make change in a sustainable way, the people of Uganda, not an individual. And they should learn from what happened in other countries not to invest in individuals because individuals expire. During the cold war, the people who invested in Mobutu, what happened? You look at the DR, look at the North African countries.

So our involvement in Somalia was because we had genuine interests in Somalia. 1.5 million small guns cross from Somalia into Uganda every other two years. This is a huge thing. So it is in our interests to have a stable Somalia. So no one should tell us that if Mr Museveni is not there, then Somalia will go. No we shall do our job because we too have our interests not Mr Museveni. They are Ugandan interests. There are other issues. The world must know that it can be served better by sustainable engagement of country than individual. Individuals have subvert the movement of history and cause instability. If unstable countries were the best for Western cooperation, why is it then that their volume of trade, their relations are higher with countries which are stable?

Look at Asia, look at everywhere. It means that the African states that are unstable must be replaced in order that there is a genuine sustainable progress in the world. And the West must also know that an unstable Africa is bad for the world. These strong men don’t ensure stability. For example I can tell you that by 2040, the forest cover in Uganda will be finished. What does that mean? It means drought, and the undermining of food security. Some of the lakes in Africa have dried up like Lake Chad and others. Lake Victoria is shrinking. If the water sources are gone and yet Mr Museveni is building hydro-electric dams everyday but is cutting forests. So he does not understand the relationship between the environment and power generation. He doesn’t understand.

So the West will have immigration, it will have wars and unstable areas in which terrorism will be germinating every day. So it is in the interests of the West to invest in sustainable peace and security. They cannot demand anything else because then their interests will not be met. But they must know that they interests will best served in institutions that are well governed.

So those are some of the details I wanted to talk about. The rest is about the FUF. The FUF has brought in a new ideology, a broad-based movement well beyond groups, recruiting even among the NRM. This is a new movement that recognises the innocence of people. We begin with innocence before we project guilt. Therefore even those people who are in the NRM, they need to come and we will accept them.

GOD BLESS HON REBECCA KADAGA…WHERE IS NIRINGIYE, MATEMBE?


In a situation even where the mightiest of the land are dillydallying over the moral decadence and perversion of the West, she stands tall to be counted. At home and even when she is out. Our media and ‘human rights activists’ need to read and get details of homos and their fate in the West: not allowed to join Boy Scouts or Girl Guides; not allowed to ‘declare’ their status when players in key games: soccer, baseball, et al. No homo is allowed to be chaplain of any youth club. THEREFORE THERE MUST BE SOMETHING WRONG ABOUT IT.

It is only and the end of 2013 that one fellow in Britain believed to be the father of the computer was given a post-humous pardon and rehabilitation: he was condemned for being a homosexual in 1952. CECIL RHODES, the greatest rapist of African resources and sovereignty was banished by his own parents at age 17 to Africa, because he was a homosexual. Conventional history records that he was a sickler, so his parents sent him to Africa …’hoping that he would get better’!!! Imagine a family in 18th century England, sending their teenage son to a ‘dark continent’, with the hope that he would get better!!!!!!

This thing should NOT be seen in isolation. It is part of a larger campaign to eliminate us and occupy our continent: family planning( Marie Stoppes type), the Walter Reed Project ( guinea-pigging us for biological weapons), legalisation of prostitution, weakening the family unit, condemning African names and practices as satanic, GMOs, trafficking of human organs( disguised as ‘ ritual sacrifice), ‘child rights’, foreign aid in every sector and everything( which is actually AIDS), ALL this is should be seen totality, as a package.

The ‘explorers’ coming to Africa expected to find ‘wild naked savages’ whom they would eliminate the way they did in the Americas. Finding powerful empires and flourishing economies, they were shocked. The legacies and records left by those ‘pioneer explorers’ show that ‘other less offensive and subtle means have to be devised by successive generations to eliminate the native…’. This started with the enslavement of the mind, where one feels superior and liberated when they condemn all things African and want to be European, American!!

We stand firm. If you love Africa, why have you not given us the same HIV/AIDS cure that the US uses, instead leaving us for all manner of experimentation????

SOUTH SUDAN: UGANDAN MPs, DR MACHAR: THE ERA OF WARLORDS IS LONG GONE!


Dr Machar’s response to Museveni over the crisis is South Sudan is expected but it ends there. The era of warlords is long gone. The era when innocent citizens would be brutalised and murdered by their ‘leaders’ under the guise of ‘internal affairs’ ‘sovereignty’ and ‘territorial integrity’. By the way, why didn’t you say the same in the early and later 90s as SPLM fought against Khartoum? Or you have chosen to forget? You can run but you will not hide. True, there were weaknesses within the administration, but all you needed was the leadership foresight and humility to sit and resolve them. People died over the 20 years as you ‘struggled’ against Arabs. Where are the Arabs now? How come you can proudly say you are in touch with secretaries in the US, but have the guts to rebuke your next door neighbour and erstwhile benefactor? Who has a bigger stake in South Sudan? The US or the EAC/IGAD/Uganda? You have a window of hope. Cease the fire, save innocent herdsboys from senseless killing and dying, seek the intervention and counsel of elders and lead your people to prosperity. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Equally out of order are Uganda’s MPs who jump on any ‘opportunity’ to arouse relevance. Regional and global dynamics are such that we cant let warlords kill innocent people. Innocent South Sudanese need life. Moreover, you want Ugandans evacuated, yet you question the role of UPDF in Sudan. While it is okay for France to come into CAR and Mali to settle crises, Ugandan MPs find it strange for Uganda to calm a next door neighbour whose fate is intertwined with ours. Honorable MPs, that’s the reality of the current global dynamics. Would you complain if Britain sent in troops to save its former colony? Am sure not….there you go!!

DAILY MONITOR: U NEED CORRECT THIS IN STELLA NJUBA’S STORY


njuba daughter
she narrated “Life changed when her father was arrested by the transitional government of Uganda National Liberation Front (UNLF) government under President Yusuf Lule”.

No. It was the Military Commission under the late Paulo Muwanga as Chairman and Yoweri Museveni as Vice Chairman that arrested and detained the late Mr. Sam Kalega Njuba in 1980. I recall vividly because on that day, there was a massive DP rally at City Square when news broke that the late Mr. Njuba had been arrested on his way to the rally.

At the time Mr. Njuba (RIP) wore multiple hats as Chairman Uganda Law Society and Chairman Express FC.

And let me be clear: for many in DP circles then and now, the chairman and Vice Chairman of the Military Commission were active participants in his arrest. Figure out why.

Quiz: what do these distinguished Ugandans have to do with that period, the late Mr. Saul Musoke (then President Court of Appeal), the late Justice Nyamuconco (SP), and the late Mr. Oluol Wacha?

They were innocent men who had nothing to do with the chaos that engulfed Ugandan then. Honestly, those wakombozi screwed up Ugandan. And I mean that. The returning Ugandans and TZ simply screwed up the country. If there is one single moment responsible for Uganda’s trauma ever since it is that so called liberation.

I wish those who lived in TZ could tell us more but one sensed that life especially in TZ was very tough and dominated by relative deprivation. Why? The returnees were in a rush to catch up and in the process screwed the country for good.

YKM was as much responsible as the late Paulo Muwanga for the arrest of the late Mr. Sam Kalega Njuba (RIP) by the Military Commission in 1980.

If there is one lesson from these articles by the children of those who were impacted by the wars in Uganda, is the unfortunate recognition that the majority (emphasis added) of Ugandans suffer from mental illnesses and historical trauma. Those of us who live in North America and have encountered First Nations or Aboriginal Peoples can testify to the destructive legacy of historical trauma. Things are very bad.

The best example from Africa is how Somali have run amok. Holy cow! Why do you think they are killing each other in such larger numbers in Western capitals? Why is crime rate so high among Somalis? Many suffer from the trauma in their motherland. Yes even those born in the West do because of the historical trauma. The crime, the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the excessive drinking, multiple sex partners and deliberate transmission of HIV/AIDS, rising rates of divorce etc. are symptoms of that historical trauma. It is the scape if you will. I can say without fear that Ugandans have not seen anything yet. Mambo bado or gakyali mabaga.

This brings me to the clinical psychologists and social workers in UAH and Uganda. What can be done to offer effective counseling and therapy to the Ugandans in need? I

But the real burden is the historical violence in Ugandan society. Very few in that wretched country have not witnessed violence.

It would be interesting to hear from the Editors at the Monitor. Why are they running these stories? We also ask hat they should cross check the facts and get them right.

BTW, what happened to the children of the late Oyite Ojok and those who perished on that chopper?

WOMEN SHOULDN’T DRINK BOTTLED WATER LEFT IN A CAR OVERNIGHT, AND DON’T COOK FOOD USING ‘BUVEERA’


Read this carefully!!! No matter how many times you get this message, Please send it on!!!! This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous! On the Ellen show-CBS, Sheryl Crow said that this is what caused her breast cancer. It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue.

Sheryl Crow’s oncologist told her: ‘women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car’.The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water.

Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

2. This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center . No plastic containers in microwaves. No plastic water bottles in freezers. No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies. Don’t freeze plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin into the food. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same result, but without the dioxin.

So, such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc. should be removed from their containers and heated in something else. Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s safer to use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. In Africa, people have started using ‘buveera’ to steam food instead of ‘endagala’ but this should also stop.

As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us! Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic!

LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE/GIRLFRIEND/ DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE! AND PSE PUT US IN YOUR PRAYERS!

YES, IT IS FOREIGNERS FANNING REGIONAL CONFLICTS


President M7 is right about foreigners fanning conflicts in the region. But his correctness ends there. The key question is ‘when are foreigners good and when are they bad’? when do they become ‘development partners’ and when do they become ‘imperialists’. It depends on who is talking when to whom.

Tee Ngugi summed it up aptly in the run-up to the Kenyan elections 2013. To him, Kenyans were none the better. What was coming was another class of agents, whose links through international capital were strong with foreign powers whom they call imperialists when it suits the audience. Nyakwangwa ayangwa n’obwe. We reject foreign interference, let’s reject it wholesome. The EALA he was addressing( nay the entire EAC project) survives on hand-outs from foreigners.

The AU, lives in a foreign-donated building, eats from the EU, water from China. The AU IBAR( animal resource body) based in Nairobi reports to France and Spain.

Uganda’s road body, UNRA, reports to the EU. From teaching us how to wash hands to building our president’s office, a foreign hand is prominent.

Kids today aspire to join ‘civil society’ because it is the ‘civil society activists’ leading a flamboyant life: big cars, palatial homes, globe-trotting, five-star hotel conferences, et al. ALL IS THIS FOREIGNERS…The kleptocracy at OPM, the Merc of the PM, is foreign-oiled. Both thieving governments and ‘watchdog’ civil society are pawns of foreign powers, through different channels, while citizens are guinea-pigs: poverty projects, hand-outs, camps, ’empowerment’, GMOs, HIV-trials, vaccine trails, biological weapons trials, human organ trafficking( disguised as ‘child-sacrifice), slavery, et al.

Yes, foreigners are fanning conflict. It’s in their interest. And that of their pawns. Look closely at the South Sudanese refugees denied entry into Kenya or those in Uganda: do you find Kiir’s child or Machar’s child? People starving, while their ‘leaders’ are spoilt for choice at The Sheraton Addis!!

AVOID DRINKING COKE IF THERE IS WATER:


# 1. In many states the highway patrol carries Two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from The highway after a car accident.

# 2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.

The story below was narrated to me by my mother


Around 1980, my father had just returned from Italy to meet the Pope when his bestfriend, Cedrac, introduced him to a gentleman. The gentleman was Amama Mbabazi. Cedrac & Mbabazi married sisters.

Mbabazi introduced him to other very many gentlemen, among whom included Ruhakana Rugunda & Yoweri Museveni. Indeed in the 1980 elections, all the above men, while having lunch at home, my elder sister Carol sang, “UPM, clean leadership” & Museveni said the kid was bright. My illiterate father nicknamed her Bright-a name she holds todate.

In the reign of the Military Commission, Museveni came to kabale to pick some recruits, bt run out of cash to hire a car. My father gave him a Tata lorry.

From time to time, when they had began the guerilla war, my father was called upon to give financial support-which he so willingly gave. Ard 1982, Museveni came home & dad gave him 20k dollars. That day, Obote soldiers almost shot him dead. The bullet marks are still there in the dinning walls.

That same year, his best friend, Cedrac-was captured & taken to Kireeka. My father tried to use Maj. Gen Maruru to rescue him-the day they visited him in prison was the day that he was murdered. My father was also arrested & taken to Makindye prison. A prominent businessman in kabale Canon Batuma rescued him through the then Min. Of Internal Affairs, Luwuliza Kirunda.

In 1983, my father was again arrested from ard Entebbe airport. In the Mercedes Benz he was driving, he had 20m kenyan shillings& 50k US dollars. He was taken to Nile Mansions(present day Serena) then a torture Chamber. That everyday, they would be asked to pray & one of them randomly picked to be murdered. A senior Intelligence officer in the regime called Andrew Tindikahwa together with the then Min of Health, Dr. Nkwasibwe saved him. When he was freed, the soldiers dropped him off at the entrance of Fairway hotel, without a shirt or shoes.

When my father held a meeting with Museveni in 1985, he told him soldiers were lacking gumboots. My father personally delivered them to Fred Rwigyema & Julius Chihandae in Kasese in a Hilux, no UXA 145.

That same year, he aided a group led by Samson Mande, to access money in UCB Kabale. Many of the meetings by people who would come to Uganda through Rwanda in that year were held from home.

My fqther was seriously witchhunted & planned to go to exile. Major Bwende told him to wait-if they crossed Katonga, he would stay (the war would almost be done). If they failed, he advised that it would be bloody. By mid Nov, it was clear they were winning the battle.

The above story was narrated to me by my mother-She strongly believes that their efforts were in vain, the regime has overstayed their welcome & should have left by yesterday. My mother is bitter-that Mr. Museveni has deviated from all the promises he made then

My opinion is different, I think the regime should still be in power. After expressing her opinions on a local radio station yesterday, I callled her & we debated. In my next post, I will explain where her & I disagree.

UAH’s Pamela Ankunda is the daughter of the late Izidoro from Rushoroza


The late Izidoro hailed from Rushoroza. One of his daughters is Pamela Ankunda, formerly of Uganda Media Centre & now at Internal Affairs.I dont know how she is related to Paddy Ankunda UPDF/DEFENCE spokesperson.Pamela Ankunda is not married to that gentleman. Ankunda is her maiden name.

Izidoro was killed by Obote forces in 1980.He shared the same cell with Mr.Kanyima John at the army barracks in kabale town. They were scheduled to be transferred to kampala the next day on orders of Rwakasis. It took the intevention of the late Canon Batuma for Mr. Kanyima to be freed. mr Izidoro was never seen alive agan.

Mr Kanyima was instrumental in helping the NRA secure funds and supplies. Being a business man, exporting produce to Rwanda, he was approached by mr otafire and mr jim muhwezi to sell for them maize and beans and to purchase boots and other supplies on return journeys.

During that time, sacks and sacks of cash were seen being carried from Rwanda practically on the head by porters. That money was returned the otafires. not even a penny was missing. when the raging around katanga and the NRA needed money, they once again appoached Mr. Kanyima who introduced them to Mrs kahirimbanyi the then manager UCB kabale.

Legend has it that Mr kanyima and mr museveni drove to her residence in a jeep. after explaining their dilemma, she agreed to drive back with them, opened the vault and loaded their vehicles with as much cash as they could carry. mrs kahirimbanyi was later made secretary to the treasury (one of the two people whose signatures appear on Uganda currency notes).

Up until his death 11 years ago, mr kanyima was a strong supporter of the movement and even consulted by intelligence on matters of national security. some of the prominent businessmen from Kabale who supported the NRA system financially or otherwise include Mr kanagizi, the late Bainamaryo, the late Safi (also inlaw to mr amama mbabazi). one thing certain about is that system kept promising these gentlemen some form of compensation which never materialized.There were other businessmen who helped those guys. Matthias Niwaine’s father, the late Matiya from Bukinda was one of them. Actually for them, even their own residential house was taken over by the Obote regime & given to a school-todate.

The only tangible contribution that was given was that of shs.50,000 from mr rugunda at the funeral of mr kanyima. I was actually asked by the organisers not read the 50,000 as it would be an embarrassment to the minister and the government. that gentleman who risked his life for the struggle, who hardly saw in my earlier years was my father.

Certainly the principles which brought the movement into power were forgotten a long time ago. I guess insiders looking out imagine any one opposing the system is insane. what they fail to realise is that they went off track a long time ago.

Generally speaking Kabale has been marginalised. How many ministers do we have? Look at the state of our roads, the sewerage on the streets. Kabale is a shadow of its former self. if it wasn’t for business people, the town would be like an ancient ruin

Frank Agaba is the son of late Kanyima
