M7 Was Anointed To Lead Uganda, You Will soon fall in the heap of the “tried and forgotten” – NRM Blast Bobi Wine Over Pharaoh Comments



The office of the Chairman of National Resistance Movement (NRM), who also doubles as the president has warned Bobi Wine that prophets do not annoint themselves but they are divinely annointed assigned visions to carry and fulfill just like president Museveni.

During the DP Reunion at Kakinda stadium in Jinja, Bobi equated Museveni to Pharoah who was given ten signs before he could let the Iraelites leave Egypt.

Bobi said, “The people of Uganda are ready to get rid of your oppressive regime. You still have a chance. In the Bible, in the book of Exodus, God gave Pharaoh up to ten signs! When each sign was given, Pharaoh simply hardened his heart.

At each turn God was saying to Pharaoh, let my people go! But Pharaoh refused. Locusts came, then frogs, lice, boils, a hailstorm, etc. But Pharaoh refused to heed the signs. He continued to harden his heart! Well, until it was too late and he fell into the Red Sea with his entire army.”

Bobi added, “Likewise, God has over the years sent different signs to you, President Museveni, and told you, “Let my people go.” There was a sign of Dr. Paul Kawanga Ssemwogerere. Then a sign of Dr. Kizza Besigye your former personal doctor. Then the sign of Gen. Mugisha Muntu, your former army commander, and all your comrades who said enough was enough!

Then God sent you the sign of your good friend Gaddafi in Libya. It didn’t end there- Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Zimbabwe were all signs to you. Just a few months back, you got the signs of Algeria and Sudan!”

He Continued, ” Sadly like Pharaoh, you have ignored all these signs and hardened your heart even more. Like Pharaoh, the more signs you get, the more you increase the oppression of the people. You have ignored the signs of Professors and Generals. The signs of doctors and engineers. All of them! Having ignored all these, God is sending you one more sign- the rastas have risen up and are demanding for democracy. The sign of the determination of Uganda’s young people is clear. Will you heed this time round? The choice is yours. You can redeem the little that is left, or you can wait until it is too late.”

In answering Bobi, the NRM said, “The DP reunion held in Jinja this week proved to be a fiasco as it became a forum for leaders to jostle for positions and goodies in a government they have not formed and which they will never form.

One of the key speakers, Kyaddondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu (Bobi Wine) continued to exhibit lack of knowledge of historical facts when, using the Biblical analogy of Pharaoh and Moses, he claimed that he was the last sign to NRM National Chairman, President Yoweri Museveni, to leave power, naming the other “signs” as Dr Kizza Besigye and Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu.”

They schooled Bobi that, “If Bobi Wine cared to learn, he would appreciate that “prophets” do not anoint themselves. They are divinely anointed and assigned Visions to carry and fulfill. National Chairman Museveni has carried his Vision for more than five decades during which time he has defeated a long line of obstacles including Idi Amin, Obote, Gen. Tito Okello Lutwa, Joseph Kony, Lakwena, Itongwa; numerous other armed and civil groups, local and international. His triumphs speak divine ordination.

Besigye and Muntu have been a walk over and they are welcome to the contest. For Bobi Wine, well, what is he compared to the named vanquished obstacles in Museveni’s way? It is only a matter of time before he falls on the heap of the “tried and forgotten.”

POLICE SPEAKS OUT ON NAILED M7 SUPPORTER: We Cannot Trust These Hooligans With Power – Bebe Cool Stings Opposition



Dancehall musician Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool has attacked the opposition for being violent towards a president Museveni supporter.

Today morning, a gruesome picture of a National Resistance Movement (NRM) supporter was shared all over social media. In the picture, the NRM supporter was nailed with a six-inch nails in the hands because he was putting on a yellow cap that had a picture of president Museveni.

Later, the Kampala Metropolitan Police PRO, SP Patrick Onyango released a statement identifying who the man was and what happened.

Onyango’s Statement read, “Police in Wandegeya is investigating an incident where a man identified as Kasumba Baker, 21 years, a resident of Avis Kivulu, Kawempe Division Kampala who was putting on NRM cap was intercepted by two unidentified men who hit him on the head and lated nailed his hands.”

“According to Kasumba, on 28/8/2019, he left his work at 10:00pm at JESCO Ham shopping center, heading home, but he realised that he had spent some time without visiting his mother. He decided to go and check on her. He decided to take a short route through Kalerwe where old spare parts of vehicles are sold, as he was about to reach the flyover, two men grabbed him and nailed his hand with two nails of 6 inches.,” the statement further reads.

The statement adds, “two ladies who were looking for their child that went missing saw the men and shouted that they should leave their child alone. They thought the two men were kidnapping their child. The two men decided to run away when the wome reached the scene, they made an alarm and police of Kibe/Kalerwe responded and Kasumba was rushed to Mulago Hospital where he is currently receiving treatment. He is out of danger.”


In a phone interview with the Grapevine, Bebe Cool warned this violent group is known very well and this is not the first time this is happening.

“If this group can do this without power, how about if they are entrusted with power, what will they do and what will happen to this peaceful nation of ours? These are hooligans who want to destroy the peace of this country.”

However, when we tasked him to name the group of people who are doing such acts, Bebe said that everybody knows them and they are the very people who are yearning to take power.

Bebe later posted on his Facebook page, “I condemn such acts of intolerance, intimidation and violence that some political groups are trying to bring in our peaceful country, six inche nails nailed in the hands of an NRM /president Museveni supporter!

If without power this who they are, how about if they are granted power?! Let’s embrace democracy and condemn violence!

I am an NRM and president Museveni supporter and it’s my constitutional right to choose who I support!”

I Want This Regime To Know That I’m Not A Village Dog You Beat And Walk Away – Nambooze Drags SFC, Police To Court



Mukono municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Balireke has dragged security forces to court for brutally assaulting her when they invaded parliament 2017 during the ‘togikwatako’ debate.

Hon. Nambooze asserts that; on the 27th day of September, 2017, Parliament was besieged and blockaded by the combined forces of the Uganda Police force and Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) personnel who ordered MPs to park at National Theatre Kampala and made MPs access to Parliament to transact business very difficult.

At the commencement of the plenary sitting in the afternoon of 27th September, 2017, the Speaker of parliament (Rebecca Kadaga ) cited and arbitrarily suspended 25 MPs, the Applicant inclusive, and accordingly the proceedings were suspended for 30 minutes to allow the suspended Mps move out and asked Sergeant at Arms to ensure compliance. No sooner had the speaker of Parliament risen to exit from the chambers than several security personnel stormed the chambers and started molesting several MPs on the opposition side.

Together with other MPs, Nambooze was tortured, harangued and arrested in a cruel, inhuman and degrading manner, which amounted to a violation of her Constitutional rights. Upon her illegal arrest, the she was illegally detained in police custody at SIU Kireka in Wakiso District for the rest of the day.

The conduct of the combined forces of the Uganda People’s defence forces, the Uganda Police force personnel and other militia was high handed, malicious and illegal and as a result, the Applicant was subjected to physical and psychological torture, mental anguish, embarrassment, humiliation and emotional stress for which Government is vicariously liable.

Upon that background therefore, the Opposition strong lady through her lawyers (Erias Lukwago and Mpenje Nathan) of Lukwago and Co.Advocates is seeking a declaration that the brutality, humiliation and embarrassment meted out onto her amounted to inhuman and degrading treatment under Art. 44 of the Constitution.

This case is has been brought Under Art. 44(a), 45, 50 of the Constitution, Ss. 3 & 4 of the Human Rights (enforcement) Act, 2019, S. 33 Judicature Act and the Judicature (Fundamental Rights and Freedoms)(Enforcement Procedure)Rules, 2008 in an action for redress for the violation of the rights to liberty, freedom from torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and the matter will commence anytime at High Court.
Nambooze later took to her Facebook page and said, “I have today taken a step further by going to Court to seek redress in relation the harm I suffered on the 27th of September 2017,when SFC soldiers invaded Parliament.” The Mukono legislator adds, “My brother and Counsel Erias Lukwago will lead our team to seek for a declaration that the torture brutality and violence on me by SFC, Uganda Police and other Militia amounted to violation of my Constitutional rights and freedom as enshrined in the Constitution Artical 24 and 44.”
“I particularly want the regime to know that am not a village dog that you can beat, maim and walk away with impunity. We shall never tie until we get justice,” she says.

People Power Is A Bastard Child Of Defiance – Mwenda Attacks Bobi Wine/Besigye In New Rant



Journalist Andrew Mwenda has attacked Bobi Wine’s people Power Movement and baptized it as the bastard child of Kizza Besigye’s defiance in his latest rant.
Through his Facebook page, Mwenda said that Bobi (who he kept referring to as Bobby ) and his People Power Movement lack vision to lead this country.
Below is his rant verbatim:

Last week, it became apparent that the initial news that a one Michael [K]alinda aka Ziggy Wyne had been kidnapped, eye yanked out, fingers chopped off and face burnt using a flat iron were exactly that – a hoax. Ziggy had a nasty motorbike accident at 7.30pm on July 21. People around the accident scene picked him up and took him to the nearby Hope Clinic. The nurse at the clinic referred him to Mulago for urgent medical attention.

But the first version of the story was more appealing for two reasons. First, it fitted the narrative about the state in Africa – as being brutal, violent and cruel to its citizens. It is a story Western media and human rights organizations (and naively followed by us African elites) love to embrace and tell in their everlasting (perhaps unconscious) desire to project Africa as the “heart of darkness.” Second, it provided political fodder for opposition politicians like Bobby Wine to project himself as the champion of human rights and democracy against the forces of tyranny.

However, the indefatigable Canary Mugume of NBS, then Tom Malaba of Daily Monitor, and other reporters went to the scene of the accident and interviewed eyewitness who told the story of what actually happened. For this, these reporters, but most especially Canary, became a victim of the most savage hate-filled personal attacks from supporters of People Power. Incidentally, none of Canary’s critics made any effort to challenge the facts he told.

Later I visited Mulago and talked to the doctors. Ziggy was brought to Mulago by a “good Samaritan” who said the victim had been involved in a traffic accident and was admitted at about 9.30pm as an unknown person and given the code name “Zulu.” Ziggy was treated, fed, bathed and given fresh clothes; the ones he was wearing at the time of the accident were taken and washed. On July 24th, his family came. He recovered and was discharged on July 28. He was given medicines to stop convulsions. He was later readmitted on July 31; doctors suspect he was not taking his medicines. However, the convulsions he suffered as a result of not taking his medication are the most likely cause of his death.

Yet in spite of this mountain of evidence Bobby Wine went to Mitooma to bury Ziggy and maintained the claim that Ziggy was kidnapped, tortured and murdered. He felt no responsibility whatsoever to provide any evidence to back up his claims. For him, the death of Ziggy only serves an opportunity for him to score political points. This crass political opportunism excites the passions of the hoards that see him as a messiah but shows how he lacks basic human decency and ethics even in the face of the death of one of his “close friends”.

Throughout last week, the journalists who told this truth but most especially Canary, became victims of cyber bullying by supporters of People Power. Rather than respond to the facts adduced by the journalists, the supporters of People Power hurled insults, abuses and false accusations that them. One wonders what sort of government Bobby Wine would preside over given the quality of people he has mobilized to his cause. We must remember that People Power is not supported only by lumpens. Some very smart Ugandans also do. The actions of its supporters demonstrate that behind its madness lies a clear strategy.

People Power is a movement without a cause except to grab power. It seeks so exploit the anger many Ugandans have at the state of affairs of in our country in order to gain power. But it has neither facts not a vision to justify its reckless pursuit of power. So its strategy is to deny all facts and insist that everything is subjective and relative; to dismiss all evidence as forged if it does not promote their political agenda; and to argue that every argument that seems to favor President Yoweri Museveni and his NRM is not based on conviction but has been paid for. It is interesting People Power resembles the Donald Trump movement in the USA although Americans who support it are anti Trump.

As Winston Churchill said, truths is incontrovertible: malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it. But in the end, it is there. Over the last decade, there has been a huge shift in government budgeting from consumption to investment – in roads, dams, power lines, water pipes, hospitals and schools. Defiance and its bastard child, People Power, hate to hear this. They know that the good things happening in our country are contrary to their political interests. Therefore they insist that there is nothing good being done. All there is are the bad things they complain about – which also happen – and which are driving people’s momentary anger.

Hence, they exaggerate the level of decay, disregard and deny all the improvements in the country and intimidate those who stand by the truths. They insist that everyone in Uganda should accept their gross distortion of reality. They do not seek to r persuade anyone to their point of view. They believe in using cyber bullying against all who disagree with them. This way they seek, like the European fascists of old, to rally everyone behind their cause by sheer use of psychological terror.

The aim of this strategy is obvious: bully everyone to believe change is urgently needed to rescue Uganda from catastrophe. They don’t want people to question the change they propose or ask for their alternative policies or even question their intolerant behavior. To question their lack of policy alternatives and the crudeness of their methods is evidence of having been bribed by Museveni.

For them politics in Uganda is a clash between good (People Power) and evil (Museveni); that these are the only alternatives available to us; that to say there is a third or fourth alternative is disguised support for Museveni; that for anyone to prove they support change in Uganda, they must hold fanatical, unthinking and unquestioning support for People Power. Many young people have been pushed into this because to do otherwise is to get ostracized from your circle of friends.

We are told that if Defiance and People Power supporters exhibit intolerance, we should not blame them because that is only an inevitable result of Museveni’s politics; that when People Power and Defiance use violence, intimidation, cyber bullying, blackmail, character assassination and insults against opponents, this does not reflect on the nature of government they will run; that Uganda needs change and it does not matter which methods are used or the behavior of the groups who bring it about. That lies, slander, cyber bullying are “weapons of the weak” fighting to end tyranny.

Lacking a serious policy alternative and being largely composed of the worst elements of our society, People Power needs to sell change as an emergency. This way it can avoid questions about its competence and values. That is why those who try to raise these questions are subjected to physical and psychological terror. This is why it has positioned itself in religious garb as a kind of holly spirit movement.

Yet Defiance and its bastard child, People Power, have failed to subdue the spirit of our nation. Increasingly many journalists like Canary and many others are finding the courage to stand up for the truths and defend it against this demented cult. The story of Ziggy Wine is one such example. These are the journalists who have chosen to swim against the tide of popular rhetoric and self-righteous indignation common among sections of our society today. They have chosen to defend right when it is miscalled wrong, to fight vices such us intolerance, radical extremism, blackmail, slander etc. that are presented to us as virtues.

Everyday, multitudes of elite Ugandans are coming out to say that politics must be about values and must be based on decency. That the role of our leaders should be to articulate these values and impart them on their followers by leading by example; that leaders should not pander to the worst instincts in their followers but try to appeal to the better angels in them. These developments will continue to expose pseudo democrats who, in their genuine opposition to Museveni’s corruption and incompetence, have turned a blind to the forces of evil fighting him.
