DEFIANT ZAAKE SPEAKS OUT: They Have Attempted To Kill Me Twice, I was Injected With Slow Killing Poison, I’m Coming Back On Thursday

Published

Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake Butebi has finally spoken out on the Arua incident.

In a post on his Facebook page, Zaake, who is currently receiving treatment in India says they have tried to kill him twice and failed. He says he was injected with deadly poison that kills slowly but thankfully doctors in India quickly removed it.

The legislator says that he will land on Ugandan soil this Thursday 11 October.

Below is his full account:

BROKEN BUT NEVER CHANGED,THURSDAY 11/10/2018 IS THE DAY.

Friends, Foes and frenemies, it has been long since we last communicated. I must profoundly aver that life has not been easy especially in the period between now and the 13th day of August, 2018 when we were attacked by miscreant beings from SFC.

These guys battered me excessively to the extent that my body could no longer feel the pain, I think that after failing to kill me during the “Togikwatako” Saga, they thought that another opportunity had presented itself to them to completely eliminate me. Well, let’s say they had eliminated me. God forbid! Would that stop the incessant killings in Uganda or it would improve on the health care services in HCs? Would it in anyway construct standard roads or it would arrest the escalating pecuniary difficulties amongst the plebs in Uganda? Kindly enlighten us whether it would solve the conundrum of Corruption, nepotism and sectarianism in our Country? Would that really solve the unresolved Land problem in Uganda? If the answer to any of the above questions is no, then, God will erect many youths reading from the same script as myself, trust me when the late Cerinah Nebanda was brutally murdered, many of us joined the struggle and here we are exactly reading from the same script as her.

Last year, when I had just come back from overseas to seek medical treatment, I recollect making statements as to who has authentication to take away my life and I wish to reecho the same here. It is only God who has capacity to end my life at His will because he authored it and for the same reason, I am grateful to Him that I am now feeling better, no migraines, less pain in the neck and for the scars on my hands, back and other body parts, I shall live with them.

It is a public secret that, Health workers that attended to me in Lubaga Hospital were intimidated during and after my admission in the Lubaga Hospital by the state, but, you guys braved the storm by never relenting. In Mannipal Hospital through Ugandan Embassy, the state of Uganda attempted to conspire and obtain my medical documents but the professional ethics that these medical workers exhibit, made their efforts futile.

The other issue prudent for all to know is that, foreign chemical substances were detected in my body system, perhaps slow killer poison but luckily the specialists managed the situation early by a general body cleansing after which procedure the medics declared that, I am out of danger and that I can now completely heal from home an idea which was highly welcomed because this red pepper can really be boring but most importantly, I miss home. With such declarations, on Thursday 11/10/2018 at exactly Midday, I will be back home and home will be sweet home. I am just waiting for a fit to flight document.

Even though I am yearning for Mityana Municipality, the major challenge that befalls me as of now which I think my People should know is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder comingled with Panic attacks on recollection of events stretching way back from 27/09/2017 during the Togikwatako epoch, lack of balance while walking is also an issue now, I must support myself to walk but the good news is that I am told that after continued Physiotherapy sessions, I can walk again.

With much grief, I take this opportunity to commiserate with those families that lost their beloved ones during demonstrations all over the Country that were intended to demand for our freedom, in Mityana Municipality alone many People died in the hands of the Police which is by law mandated to protect life and property but in lieu resorted to killing innocent and unarmed civilians. That was so unfortunate!

There has been propaganda orchestrated by the state to justify their wrong doing that People Power is a violent group. That is not true, we are non-violent, and we associate ourselves with the principle of Mahatma Gandhi which states that an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind. We can never violent and never shall we ever be, we have always advised our followers never to be violent because two wrongs can’t make a right. I want to iterate and reiterate here that People Power is never violent and also our People aren’t violent. We are just seeking transfer of power to a generation that will address the current constitutional crisis that befalls us as a Country and we intend to do this with utmost tranquility unless otherwise the state plants a bad group among us. Upon that, I wish to remind our People to be peaceful, we must show good conduct that distinguishes us from them.

Lastly and important, I wish to thank AAR Insurance for meeting my medical bills both in Lubaga Hospital and Mannipal Hospital whose doctors have been so kind to us, I appreciate your professionalism.
Thank you the doctors and the all the medical of Lubaga Hospital for handling my situation with great care and love, may God bless you
Thank you the People of Uganda for praying with me, I am fine and I am coming home on Thursday this week. When I come I shall many unanswered questions by dispelling the myths about my story in Arua and I will surely disclose what exactly happened.
Thank you
Zaake Francis Butebi. MP Mityana Municipality

MP Kyanjo Rushed To India With Level Four Cancer, Cautions Opposition – Don’t Cry, Keep Strong, One Soldier Down Should Not Break The Struggle, Never Sell Out To The Enemy, Keep Fighting

Published

on

Former Makindye West MP Hussein Kyanjo has today been rushed to India for medication after he was diagnosed with cancer at Level Four.

Kyanjo, who was once a very vibrant shadow minister in charge of the Presidency graced the 8th and 9th Parliament. During his five years in the 8th Parliament, the Makindye West legislator was one of the most vibrant politicians through the now banned open air live broadcast radio debates popularly known as Bimeeza. He had metamorphosed into one of the finest and some would say hardest hitting legislators Uganda has known.

Kyanjo recently travelled to South Africa and London hospitals where doctors told him his condition could have been caused by any of three factors, an inheritance of the disease, effects of a serious accident or poison.

Since returning in 2014, Kyanjo has kept a low profile while receiving serious treatment from local doctors.

Different opposition members have come out to commiserate with the soft-spoken legislator.

Harold Kaija, the FDC deputy Secretary General said, “We shared an emotional talk this morning and his message was; “Don’t cry, keep strong. One soldier down should not break the struggle. For that loss does not in any way strengthen the enemy. He will collapse. I know that many people are hungry for property like land and arcades. They will go with nothing. I only ask u that never sell out to the enemy, keep fighting.”

Hon. Kyanjo is my idol, friend, mentor and Big brother. I ask God for once, pliz give us a MIRACLE. Give Kyanjo more life to see the change he worked for.

Colleagues let’s put him in our prayers and show him love. I am broken but the good thing is that he is strong amidst the pain he is going through.”

Mukono municipality legislator Betty Nambooze Bakireke said, “Put a prayer through for Hussein Kyanjo… God Lord, do us a miracle… The great soldier leaves today for India after being diagnosed with Cancer….Let this medical journey be done triumphantly…..I know that in most cases….the darkest hour of the night is the first hour of the new day. I have talked to Kyanjo and though he is in pain he sounded firm,strong and trusting in Allah the most gracious.

When someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, it is hard to know what to say. That’s okay… but Experts tell us that the worst you can do is to say nothing. If you are open and honest with the person you love, a simple text message or short email may remind them that they are in your thoughts. Let’s kindly show Kyanjo love at this greatest hour of test in his life. Lord hear us.”
