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.

Published

Like we told you yesterday, former Kampala Central legislator Capt. Francis Babu has pulled out the race for National Resistance Movement (NRM) 1st Vice Chairperson leaving incumbent Hajji Moses Kigongo unopposed.

According to the party chairman President Museveni, Babu pulled out of the race in good faith for the interest of the party.

He added, “As we conclude the process, Captain Francis Babu, one of our own long-standing cadres and a worthy contender, having expressed interest in the position of 1st Vice Chairperson and being seconded by CEC, has pulled out of the race in good faith, for the benefit of the party.”

Demolishing A Church Is A Curse – Museveni Vows To Help Ndeeba Church Retain Their Land….

Published

on

On his way to work today, His Excellency, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president of Uganda for the very first time visited the site of the recently demolished St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba.
The President expressed his sorrow triggered by the ugly incident, and gave the church assurances that whoever is responsible will pay a hefty price.
Museveni stressed that the resolution to order the demolition of a church was extreme, he suggested that dialogue amongst the stakeholders would have been most appropriate to resolve the matter, however much the church could have been caught on the wrong side of the law.
“Judges should have limits and understand public interest. Demolishing a church is a curse,” the president said, warning the general public against believing any false reports that the government is responsible for demolishing the said church.
Museveni revealed that he will very soon invite the Namirembe Diocese Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, and engage with all parties involved in this conflict to find a lasting solution.
He gave assurance that the Church will retain the disputed land at all costs, and an even better church shall be erected in the same place, publicly declaring that he has now personally involved himself in the bitter land wrangle.

Our Mass Defection Was A Collective Decision – MP Nambooze…

Published

on

Democratic Party (DP) president, Norbert Mao has assured party members that they are still standing strong even after many of their senior members defected to Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine’s National Unity Party (NUP).

The studious politician likened DP’s current situation to a farmer who loses his crops, but remains with the seeds, hinting on replanting.

While appearing on the Frontline, a political talk show on NBS, Mao said the DP will utilise this uncertainty that has befallen their party to not only heal, but also renew and rebuild their DP house.

“DP will have to look inside itself and look for the reason as to why it has been resilient for 65 years. It is time for strategic reorientation, to look at our strengths rather than our weaknesses,” Mao said, emphasizing that they (DP) are so capable of rebuilding the party.

Mao stressed that trying times like now call for calmness, and that DP will now focus on its strengths and what has remained rather than lament on its weaknesses.

The lawyer also admitted that the MPs who defected might leave political wounds to the party, but added that they will heal and so will DP.

“They might leave scars, but they eventually heal. And gaps can always be filled. Every organization must have an inbuilt capacity to heal and renew itself.

Some people have lost both hands, but life doesn’t end there. Infact, you can find your purpose from there,” Mao said.

Betty Nambooze, one of the former key members who defected to NUP insinuated that they conveniently made the healthiest decision for them and their former party where they have been the trouble causers, adding that the transfer will now also give them an opportunity to go where they shall be utilized, because they are appreciated.

The Mukono Municipality lawmaker also revealed that their resolution to massively withdraw from DP to NUP was more collective than personal.

The outspoken journalist cum politician revealed that she could not follow her close colleague Erias Lukwago the Kampala Lord Mayor to Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) because she has never fancied being a member of the Najjanankumbi based party.

She however said that she will support Lukwago for the Kampala mayoral seat, and not NUP’s Joseph Mayanja aka Chameleon.
