OPINION: To Bobi Wine My Son: The Population Is Not Confident With The Guys Around You, With Them, I Don’t See You Near State House But In The Gates Of Luzira Prison

Actor Haji Ashraf Ssemwogere has given some peace of advice to ‘his son’ Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine to get professional people as his handlers as he bids to contest for presidency.

In a letter on his Facebook page, the writer has warned Bobi that the people who are currently hanging around him are not going to help his presidential ambitions, instead, he may find himself in the gates of Luzira prison.

Below is his letter verbatim:

LETTER TO MY SON BOBI

Dear son hope this letter finds you in good shape. Kulikayo mukuziika Bishop Bamwoze. I saw you exiting the mourners.

I’m happy that you came out to announce your intension to contest for the big seat.. Some people who read my first letter criticised me for speculating that you will stand for President. I’m glad to write to a presidential hopeful.

I state it again that you have support, east west, south, and north of Uganda big enough to win you that seat. Something I’ve not seen in Uganda for my life time of maturity. Even President Museveni was resisted both in the bush and before he could warm that chair. I still ask whether you will manage that success and the luck you have in the next 2 yrs before the elections. Bobi there is nothing difficult to manage like success, especially when it involves the population. For you may have a mass of support, but I doubt their confidence in you to lead the nation. You need to start building and consolidate that confidence, both local and international. We are left with two years but I don’t see you preparing for presidency. I see Bobi, a people’s darling, God forbid, but aiming at “Hajj agambye” to “Bobi agambye”. Haaaa I doubt whether this can win you that seat. A democratic state is run by a group of people. A group in your capacity building I’m yet to see. I always see people around you very tough and ready to die for you. But are they the people your supporters would love to see you with?.

The Baganda have a saying that “mbulira gwoyita naye….” (tell me your “friend” and I describe your character). Also, science intellects tell that, “some genes can be inherited due to the surroundings”. Sincerely speaking the population is not confident with the guys around you. They are like buddies.

Buddies who always want to hear positive about you. They will always act ruthless to any negative word against you. Even if it’s true. They may even hate this letter. But that is also another weakness a political disease. A good politician should always be eager to know his/her negative and use it to his advantage. Otherwise the opponent will always capitalize on your negatives to bring you down. For example, I would give my hand and disagree that you were part of the organisation to attack Dr Besigye at Bulange. However, because of your history and the buddies near you, a few will give you a benefit of doubt. Bobi you were lucky that the Arua saga was very poorly planned. Otherwise it would have been very difficult for you to deny ownership of those guns “found” in your room.

And don’t forget the case is still in court.

President Museveni has already started organising for 2021, as Col Besigye, Gen Muntu and DP’s Mao are doing the same. Where are you Bobi my son. The population is puzzled whether you are with DP or coming as independent. 2021 is no longer far to wait. Its high time you straighten out, otherwise I don’t see you anywhere near the state house. But I dream seeing the gates of Luzira prison opening to receive you for various crimes not necessarily committed by you, but under circumstantial evidence to push you in. Dr Besigye was once nominated in absence. Who will stand with your picture at Namboole if you are arrested on the nomination day. People want to see those strong individuals.

Today all the political organizations would love you to be on their side. You are clear that change is your goal so the incumbent becomes an opponent. FDC’s Besigye has also declared his intention another opponent. I don’t know much with Gen Muntu and Mao. Hopefully if they come too, you will have four strong organized opponents. The saying goes you either join them or they fight you.

They will fight you with all the dirt until you are down..

The formation of peoples government by Dr Besigye made the incumbent relax his muscles against you. You are like a political gift to him.

It’s now peoples government against people power and the would be referee, DP is boxing FDC strongly and otherwise. The end is still puzzling me. But apparently if we move like this, come 2021, I see mama Janet rearranging the state house for another 5 years.

BOBI YOU NEED PROFESIONAL AND CREDIBLE HANDLERS.

SAY NO TO KUJOOGA! I’m Going To Lead The Battle To Save Kampala From M7 Take Over At The Expense Of The Urban Poor – MP Nambooze….

Published

on

Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke has vowed to lead the battle to stop President Museveni’s takeover of Kampala.

In a post on her Facebook page titled ‘People’s Battle For Kampala n’emiriraano-2020….Temutujoga Kampala City Yaffe…. Tukooye Ejjoogo!’, Nambooze said that, “Mr. Museveni tried to win votes in Kampala and other Metropolitan constituencies but failed. He turned to buying off opposition political leadership of Kampala but the converts failed to influences masses to go with them, the opposition only became stronger.”

She added, “He moved Parliament to amend the Constitution to give himself a law granting him power over the City and brought around a callous woman Jennifer Musisi but the Battle hardened Lord Mayor Lukwago fought this move both legally and politically and soon Museveni got to acknowledge that he was failing….. He bought a machinery in the hence to opposition “Princess” Beti Kamya and a number of councilors to use their expertise in City Affairs made another move to amend the law to abolish the adult suffrage elections for the Lord Mayorship and other issues in relation to extend the boundaries to cover the neighbouring districts of Wakiso, Mpigi and Mukono but lost it in Parliament.”

Now Mr.Museveni through his Ministers has allotted to themselves powers over Kampala thanks to Covd19. Imagine a Central Government Minister taking over the role of assigning taxis stages. Why doesn’t Katumba Wamala if he is really organising public transport also call Gulu, Kabale, Arua, Hoima, Masaka, Mbarara taxis to register and be assigned stages by his Ministry?” Nambooze asked.

She said, “Since the unfortunate outbreak of Covd19, the junta moves day in day out to take over Kampala at the expense of the urban poor, the ordinary city dweller and it seems, they want to see how far they can go before they get anyone to challenge them.”

Nambooze disclosed that on Monday, she is going to address the press in her capacity as the Alternative Minister for Kampala.

“People’s Battle for Kampala 2020. Our Battle is legally correct and politically, socially and economically a must. Our right and justification to declare this battle is in Article one of the Constitution that provides that Power belongs to the People and they will exercise it through their democratically elected leaders,” Nambooze said.

Ugandans Will Kill You, Besigye Is Fooling You Not To Stand In 2021 – Mirundi Warns Bobi Wine…

Published

on

President Yoweri Museveni’s senior advisor on media Joseph Tamale Mirundi has warned People Power strongman Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine that Ugandans will kill him if he takes the advice of the four time presidential candidate Kizza Besigye not to stand for president in the 2021 general elections.

Joseph Tamale Mirundi said that he was reliably informed that last week, Kyagulanyi met Besigye and the main purpose of the meeting was to convince him not to stand for president in 2021.

He disclosed that Besigye told Kyagulanyi that Museveni has benefitted from the COVID19 lockdown and it will be very difficult to defeat him in an election.

Mirundi revealed that Besigye further told Kyagulanyi that even the playing ground is not leveled and Museveni will not allow other candidates to campaign around the country.

Mirundi said that Besigye told Kyagulanyi that Museveni is planning to tell them to use social media and transitional media to carry out campaigns which will be very difficult them.

Mirundi said that according to information he gathered from the meeting, Kyagulanyi is willing to take Besigye’s advice but warned him that Ugandans will kill him.

According to Mirundi, Besigye wants Bobi Wine to join him.

“Bobi Wine is like Hajji Nasser Ntege Ssebaggala, you people have led to the death of Ugandans claiming that you are fighting for them yet you have your personal agenda,” Mirundi said.

“No Bobi Wine, try it and join Besigye, people will kill you. They trust you because they know the people behind Besigye,” Mirundi said.

He added that Besigye is just fooling Kyagulanyi not to stand in 2021 because he has already cut a deal with former security Minister Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde to stand for President. Efforts to speak to Joel Ssenyonyi the spokesperson of people power movement were futile because he has been not picking our calls.

TOUGH GUIDELINES ON MASKS: No Politicizing The Issue, Gov’t Bans Branded Masks, 17 More Companies Given Permission To Help Nytil…

Published

Bobi Wine wears the People Power mask

Government is set to ban all branded masks in a move that will stop the politicizing of the mask issue.

Just like it was at the beginning of the Covid19 crisis, when politicians seized the opportunity of delivering food and relief items to the vulnerable people to drum up support in their areas, there is fear from government that the mask issue is also being politicized.

However, in a move to put a stop on this, new guidelines have been issued on the nature of masks that will be allowed.

It should be remembered that when President Museveni announced that everyone will be required to wear a mask when they are going outdoors; individuals, companies, political parties and pressure groups started manufacturing their own branded masks.

However, a letter shared by Impact Media Agency alleges that Uganda Manufacturers association (UMA) held a meeting with officials in the Prime Minister’s office and they agreed to contract more companies to make enough masks to meet the high demand.

In a letter dated 19th May, 2020, signed by UMA Board Member, Mr. Richard Mubiru, tough guidelines have been issued to the 18 companies that have been selected to manufacture masks.

“Reference is made to the meeting that you chaired today at the OPM Conference Hall that featured manufacturers of Masks with the view to galvanizing the national capacity to produce the 35 Million Masks necessary to ensure that all Ugandans above six years are able to wear Masks before the further opening up of the country from the current lockdown, due in two weeks’ time from yesterday’s Presidential address,” the letter reads.

The letter adds, “Rt. Hon Prime Minister, arising from the meeting and the further consultations that ensued between Masks manufacturers and the Scientists deputed by the Ministry of Health, the following resolutions emerged:

(1) That the specification acceptable for Masks shall be two ply of cotton fabric, with an opening that can be used to insert a filter by the user, where possible;

(2) That the Masks color shall be any color other than red, blue, green and yellow associated with political organizations in Uganda;

(3) That individual potential suppliers were to contract as individual entities to ease traceability and accountability for public funds involved to ensure good value for money;

NRM mask

(4) That samples shall be shared with UMA who shall in tum submit the samples to Ministry of Health by Wednesday, 20th May 2020, the procuring entity as guided by the Ministry of Finance during the meeting;

(5) That no form of branding shall be applicable to the Masks to ensure that production capacity is not compromised;

(6) That a Representative Committee was constituted, chaired by a UMA Board Member, Mr. Richard Mubiru that shall be responsible for coordination of the procurement and production activities alongside UMA to ensure that the process is as seamless as possible;

(7) That UMA reaches out to non UMA members that have capacity to produce Masks so that such entities capacity is added onto the UMA based capacity for Masks production;

(8) That the confirmed daily capacity is in the region of at least 1,120,300 Masks per day for the participating entities is contained in the capacity Annexure hereto attached.

UMA later tweeted, “UMA is coordinating the manufacture of masks by our members. UMA so far has 18 companies lined up to produce the said masks and is working to ready more manufacturers for this task. So far capacity stands at 1.12 million masks per day.”
