    OPINION: The Legality Of EC’s ‘Scientific’ Election And Why Byabakama & Gang Must Be Arrested For Treason…..

    Published

    on

    Fellow Uganda citizens;

    1. I have taken time to respond to the Byabakama Simon Mugenyi (I do not want to call him Justice because by virtue of article 60(5)(d) of the Constitution, he must have relinquished the office of a Justice of Appeal)’s fraudulent roadmap issued on 16th June 2020 in which he claimed that he will not allow candidates to campaign. This is because I was very busy with another struggle intended to free us from feudalism, that is the Kabaka’s case where my appeal from the illegal decision of The Court of Appeal (Ntende, Obura & Muhanguzi) setting aside the order my Judge Basaza-Wasswa for Kabaka to show his Bank Statements, land titles and Register of Occupants was heard by the Supreme Court(Oio-Aweri, Mwondah, Prof.Tibatemwa, Buteera & Mugamba) on 18th June 2020 and Judgment reserved to be delivered later.
    2. After Byabakama admitting that he got instructions from Museveni, you now see why I up now insist that he must be out of that commission. Article 62 of our Constitution provides that “Subject to the provisions of this Constitution, the commission shall be independent and shall, in the performance of its functions, not be subject to the direction or control of any person or authority.” This man who was at the centre of fraudulent rape and treason prosecution of Dr. Besigye in 2005 chose to disregard the constitution in preference to the wishes of the 34-old junta.
    3. Under article 1 of the Constitution, power belongs to us, the people and not these job-seekers at Electoral Commission (EC) headed by Byabakama and as rightly held in JUSTICE KALPANA v. THE JUDICIAL SERVICE COMMISSION & ORS, Kenya Court of Appeal Civil Appeal No. 1 of 2016, that “….in exercise of their sovereign power the people of Kenya can do virtually anything they wish,…invocation of sovereign power remains powerful and unquestionable…In our view, the principle that a people have the power to change,…The principle of sovereignty belies such precept…”, we can choose to chase them and re-organize ourselves because although our sovereignty cannot be taken away without a referendum, Byabakama and his team can be sacked, arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned without even a Parliamentary resolution.
    4. By article 260(20)(a) providing that our right to ‘express our will and consent on who shall govern us and how we should be governed, through regular, free and fair elections’ can only be removed through a referendum, the framers were aware of people like Byabakama who would come up with fake schemes to rule us by force. These framers were also smart enough to have provided under article 3(2) that “Any person who, singly or in concert with others, by any violent or other unlawful means, suspends, overthrows, abrogates or amends this Constitution or any part of it or attempts to do any such act, commits the offence of treason and shall be punished according to law.”
    5. In the instant case, Byabakama and his gang, most of whom are not qualified to be in those offices are using trickery and fraud hiding under Covid-19 to overthrow our Constitution which is clear under:
    6. Paragraph II(i) of National Objectives and Directive Principles of State Policy that “The State shall be based on democratic principles which empower and encourage the active participation of all citizens at all levels in their own governance.” Byabakam is opting for passive participation of the people by claiming that they should listen to radios yet the Constitution intended to make us public participants as opposed to ‘listening posts’
    7. Article 1(4) that “The people shall express their will and consent on who shall govern them and how they should be governed, through regular, free and fair elections of their representatives or through referenda.” The meaning of word free means without restrictions and you cannot tie us to radios and Tvs and claim to be organizing a free election.
    8. Article 38(1) that “Every Uganda citizen has the right to participate in the affairs of government, individually or through his or her representatives in accordance with law.” Contrary to this, Byabakama is telling us to sit back in our houses as he purports to manufacture election results upon which we will be governed for the next five years. This is real treason by this man and his gang.
    1. I know that the incompetent lawyers and politicians will start claiming that campaigning through radios, Televisions and Social media can result into a ‘free and fair elections’ but I just pity them because while nullifying Kenya 2017 Presidential elections, in ODINGA V. UHURU & ORS, Presidential Election Petition No. 1 of 2017 Kenya’s Chief Justice David Maraga with his 3 other colleagues guided that “[212]…. elections are a true reflection of the will of the Kenyan people. Such an election must be one that meets the constitutional standards. An election such as the one at hand, has to be one that is both quantitatively and qualitatively in accordance with the Constitution. It is one where the winner of the presidential contest obtains “more than half of all the votes cast in the election;…. the election which gives rise to this result must be held in accordance with the principles of a free and fair elections, which are by secret ballot; free from intimidation; improper influence, or corruption; and administered by an independent body in an impartial, neutral, efficient, accurate and accountable….”
    2. It is easy to see that Corruption is already at helm of the Commission which is headed by a man who refused to relinquish his position as a Judge, a man who leads his team to meet Museveni at his home well aware that Museveni will contest in the election and with most Commissioners who are actually NRM mobilizers. This gang now wants to ease its robbery of our sovereignty through their ‘scientific election’.
    3. There is nothing scientific in the electoral fraud organized by Byabakama because science is based on facts which are proved and verifiable yet this Museveni-Byabakama elections is based on dishonesty, criminality and without any verifiability. It’s indeed another fraudulent scheme to call it ‘scientific’.
    4. Fellow Ugandans, Section 15(1) of our Criminal Procedure Code Act gives you powers to arrest Byabakama and his gang because it provides that “Any private person may arrest any person who in his or her view commits a cognisable offence, or whom he or she reasonably suspects of having committed a felony.” The term cognisable offence is defined by section 1(b)(i) as any offence—which on conviction may be punished by a term of imprisonment for one year or more while a felony is defined by section 2(e ) of The Penal Code Act to mean an offence which is declared by law to be a felony or, if not declared to be a misdemeanour, is punishable, without proof of previous conviction, with death or with imprisonment for three years or more.
    5. I have already stated that Byabakama and his gang of Aisha Lubega, Stephen Tashobya, Peter Emorut, Justine Ahabwe Mugabi, Mustapha Ssebagala Kigozi & Nathaline Etomaru are committing treason under article 3(2) of the Constitution and by Section 23(1) of The Penal Code Act, a person convicted is liable to suffer death hence it’s a cognizable offence. This means that I and any other person who suspects that Byabakama and EC commissioners have committed treason have a right to arrest them and I will start my hunt for them so that they can be brought to justice before its late just like you should also start your hunt.
    6. The action of arresting Byabakama and other EC members is well protected by article 3(4-6) of our Constitution which provides that “All citizens of Uganda shall have the right and duty at all times— to defend this Constitution and, in particular, to resist any person or group of persons seeking to overthrow the established constitutional order; and to do all in their power to restore this Constitution after it has been suspended, overthrown, abrogated or amended contrary to its provisions. Any person or group of persons who, as required by clause (4) of this article, resists the suspension, overthrow, abrogation or amendment of this Constitution commits no offence. Where a person referred to in clause (5) of this article is punished for any act done under that clause, the punishment shall, on the restoration of this Constitution, be considered void from the time it was imposed, and that person shall be taken to be absolved from all liabilities arising out of the punishment.” You are perfectly covered by the law.
    7. Byabakama and gang, just know that you did not come from mars, you came from amongst us and do not be blinded by those mean-looking gun-wielding men who are indeed under our command because they serve in our interests. Comply with the Constitution and organize a credible election putting in mind that no amount of bribery, fraud and foolery will make Ugandans shift from here to elsewhere or will make you change your birth places from Uganda.
    8. It is so dangerous to know a fraudster from day one and continue to play by his tricks because if you do, you will be aggravating your damage. This is the reason why we, as Uganda People’s Interests cannot waste any energy is participating in this Museveni-Byabakama fraudulent scheme named elections.
    9. Fundraising for our East African Court of Justice Ref. No. 6 of 2019 against age limit removal is on-going via 0701881231/0779869880. The hearing will be via video-link on 13th July 2020.

    Besigye Challenges Bobi Wine, Other Opposition Bosses to One-On-One  Debate Before Public On Agenda Each Has To Oust M7…

    Published

    on

    Leader of the People’s Front for Transition (PFT) political pressure group Dr. Kizza Besigye has challenged opposition political parties bosses for an open debate on the agenda each of them has to oust president Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Museveni.

    Among the political parties’ leaders Besigye wants to debate with include; National Unity Platform’s Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine, Democratic Party’s Nobert Mao, JEEMA’s Asuman Basalirwa and others.

    Besigye says the debate will help the public to understand the agenda of their leaders who are promising them change.

    “I am tired of always being hosted alone on these media talk shows. We always met with those opposition leaders but the people who are the owners of the struggle are not given an opportunity to understand their agendas. That’s why I am proposing an open debate on one platform, me seated here, my brother Hon Kyagulanyi there and others, and we debate before the public,” Besigye said.

    He added that Ugandans know very well what to do for meaningful change to happen but they have been betrayed by their leaders especially those in opposition who do not mobilize them well for change but only fulfill their personal goals after they get political offices.

    Besigye made the remarks while hosted by senior journalist Evans Walusimbi on radio Simba’s Olutindo talk show.

    He also explained that the reason why he decided to form PFT was to establish a front to be used by all opposition politicians to strategise on the way forward to oust Museveni’s regime even though some opposition politicians intentionally misinterpreted the Front’s goals.

    He insisted that each and every political pressure group formed adds something to the struggle and shouldn’t be rubbished.

    “Uganda is sitting on the time bomb and we should all prepare for the worse situation ahead. People are crying due to the increase in commodity prices and no one is there to mobilize them to fight for themselves because many of those who would have fought for them are on Museveni’s drip, getting something from the state and they don’t want to interrupt the big boss,” Besigye said.

    He added that Museveni himself knows that Ugandans are tired of him that’s why he no longer associates with them as he used to when he had just captured power.

    “He is now moving in the armoured cars with alot of guns surrounding him,” Besigye said.

    The four time presidential candidate laughed at opposition members who think that they can use the ballot to oust Museveni.

    “For us we established ten years back that a ballot cannot remove Museveni from power and we have been telling our friends but for their personal benefits, they rubbished us until they tested on him,” Besigye said.

    Family Of Alleged Kampala Twin Bombings Plotter Sheikh Kirevu Petitions UHRC’s Wangadya Over His Killing, Plead With Security To Release Widows…

    Sheikh Kirevu

    The family of the late Muhammad Abas Kirevu has petitioned Mariam Wangadya, the chairperson Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC) over the killing of their relative.

    In his Saturday address to the nation, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni confirmed that security operatives gunned down Sheikh Kirevu who was Imam of Masjid Jamia Ggangu due to his connection to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

    Museveni insisted that Sheikh Kirevu was aware of last week’s twin bombings at Kampala Central police station and along Parliamentary Avenue where seven people died.

    The president added that Sheikh Kirevu was working with Sheikh Sulaiman Nsubuga who is on run.

    The two were wanted for allegedly recruiting young children into terrorism activities under the ADF terrorist group.

    Mr. Museveni promised that his government is ready to reveal shocking evidence before the Courts of law when the trial kicks off.

    However, Sheikh Kirevu’s family led by Ibrahim Abas Ayub Kirevu, the brother to late sheikh Kirevu insists that their relative’s human rights were violated.

    They claim that he was not given an opportunity to defend himself on the alleged terrorism accusations by the state because he was killed on sight.

    “His right to life was violated and as a family we have to fight for his justice, he was arrested, handcuffed and then shot to death, we need justice for our brother,” Kirevu said after a meeting with Wangadya.

    He added that security forces also kidnapped other family members including a guest.

    He said that Amina Nabadda and Sofia Nakachwa, all windows to Kirevu, Mariam Najjuko, a sister-in-law to Kirevu are still in illegal detention.

    He pleaded to the human rights body to pressurise security agencies to release their people or take them to Court if they feel they have charges to answer.

    He further explained that they have checked a number of police stations in Kampala and some military barracks but failed to locate their loved ones.

    Wangadya promised that her commission is going to investigate the circumstances under which Kirevu was killed because he has a right to life.

    Police publicity Fred Enanga said that the said people are still in the hands of security for interrogation on a number of issues relating to last week’s twin bombings.

    Kayunga Is Not For Jokers: Swords Out As Nantaba Vows To Fight Bobi Wine’s NUP In Kayunga By-Election…

    Published

    on

    NUP boss Robert Kyagulanyi (L) and Kayunga woman MP Nantaba (R)

    Kayunga woman Member of Parliament Aida Erios Nantaba and National Unity Platform (NUP) party’s Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine have each drawn out their swords in the by-election for Kayunga district chairperson.

    The Electoral Commission declared that a by election be held in Kayunga after the controversial death of Muhammad Ffefeka Sserubugo (NUP) who was found hanging on a jackfruit tree few months after being elected into office.

    Police’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) spokesperson Charles Twine revealed that Sserubogo committed suicide which was refuted by NUP top leadership who insisted that their outspoken member was killed and hung on the tree.

    Electoral Commission chairperson Justice Simon Mugenyi Byabakama announced that the by-election will take place on 14th December, 2021.

    The biggest competition is expected to be between NRM’s Andrew Muwonge and NUP’s Harriet Nakwedde who has caused the sharp verbal fight between Nantaba and Bobi Wine henchmen.

    Julius Katongole, one of Bobi Wine’s personal assistants and also the Lubaga division youth chairperson, accused Nantaba of trying to compromise NUP’s party Election Management Committee chaired by Mercy Walukamba.

    “Nantaba is among those people who are bitter with our decision to front Nakwedde to replace the late Serubogo. You know she cheated her in the recent Kayunga woman parliamentary elections, she was declared winner at gun point but our president (Bobi Wine) was very clever. He directed Walukamba’s committee not to base on the information given to them in Kampala, he directed them to go to the grassroot and establish the rightful candidate who will secure the party’s victory in the by election and Nakwedde was selected,” Katongole said.

    He added that before announcing Nakwedde, a number of opposition leaders including Dr. Kizza Besigye’s People’s Front for Transition (PFT) had been approaching different candidates including Nakwedde to denounce NUP and contest on their tickets.

    He alleged that Besigye and other opposition parties promised to facilitate campaigns of their candidates if they cross to their camps but they all refused and reported to the party’s principle Bobi Wine.

    Katongole revealed that Bobi Wine has already received the intelligence report from the ground indicating that Nantaba is on the ground decampaigning Nakwedde but vowed to face off with her.

    Katongole also refuted claims from Sserubogo’s family that Bobi Wine betrayed them by not supporting Faridah Nakanwagi, a sister to Sserubogo and his son Jami Kamoga who were defeated by Nakwedde.

    “The process was transparent and all those people were defeated fairly and I am advising them not to fight the party because they will be defeated,” he said.

    However, when Nantaba was contacted for a comment, she laughed loudly at claims from Bobi Wine’s camp and warned that Kayunga is a different playground which doesn’t entertain jokers.

    She revealed that she is going to support Magid Nyanzi as an independent because she is also an independent.

    “The people of Kayunga know very well the land grabbers and their friends who are now jumping on Bobi Wine but they will be defeated. I am telling you,” the soft spoken legislator said.

    The NRM team is also on the ground to reclaim the Kayunga victory which was taken from them by NUP in the 2021 election.
