Police Is On A Shoot To Kill Mission Using POMA, Rugunda Should Now Tell Us Whether Govt. Nolonger Needs Opposition – FDC’s Ssemujju…

Opposition leaders Under the Inter-Party Organisation for Dialogue (IPOD) led by Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Secretary General (SG) Nathan Nandala Mafabi have summoned the Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda to explain the continuous murder and torture of opposition members and Ugandans.

This was revealed by the FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda during the party weekly press briefing at the party headquarters in Najjanankubi, a Kampala suburb. According to Ssemuijju, Rugunda has to explain why the Public Order Management Act (POMA) only favours the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) and does not apply to other political parties.

“The SG of political parties with representatives in parliament will in an effort to save the 2021 general elections meet the Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda. In this meeting, Dr. Rugunda has to interpret the true meaning POMA. He should tell us if his government has now outlawed political competition. He should tell us if multiparty system has now officially been overthrown. This Act has been necessitated by the continuous violation against opposition ahead of the elections,” Ssemujju said.

“Police uses the POMA to fight all opposition aspirants instead of using it to guide the gatherings. A good example is the way our FDC founding president Dr. Kizza Besigye was twice violently arrested as he went to attend FDC event in Jinja district. Infact, on the second day, police raided the hotel where he had stayed overnight and towed him away, we are tired of this,” he added.

In a meeting that is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 4th March, 2020, at the IPOD offices in Ntinda, a Kampala suburb, FDC has vowed that if the meeting does not yield any results, they will engage another gear of refusing to attend any other IPOD meeting.

“While violently dispersing our meetings, police hides under POMA, If the Wednesday meeting fails, we shall introduce another method of stopping those who violate our rights as political parties,” FDC’s ssemujju said.

On the current security situation in Uganda, Ssemujju insisted that the recent murders are spearheaded by police and Local Defense Unit (LDU) team who were ordered to shoot to death.

“Police is doing all this to threaten the local citizens. The recent murders were committed by police, police shot the two deceased persons knowingly,” Ssemujju insisted.

It should be remembered that early last week, two People Power supporters Rita Nabukenya and Kyeyune Daniel died under mysterious circumstances in Nakawa and Nansana respectively.

However, the Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) spokesperson Patrick Onyango refuted allegations from People Power supporters and leaders that these two were killed by police.

President Museveni’s son Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba who also doubles as his senior adviser on Special Operations has given him advice never to fight with his former bush war colleague, Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

In a post on his twitter page, Muhoozi told his boss that, “Brothers/Comrades and Revolutionaries can quarrel but they should never fight. We have come from very far. I wish His Excellency General Kagame and the people of Rwanda a solemn and respectful kwibuka.”

Muhoozi was wishing Rwandan president Paul Kagame and the people of Rwanda a respectful Kwibuka. Kwibuka means ‘to remember’ and describes the annual commemoration of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

This year marks the 26th commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. Kwibuka26 provides an important opportunity to Remember and honour the over one million victims of the genocide, preserve its evidence and educate Rwandans about its history as well as the lessons that Rwanda has learned.

Lt. Col. Nakalema Directs Arrest of Asian Tycoon Abid Alam Over Rape, Torture Allegation In Mubende…

Published

on

The State House Anti- corruption unit boss Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema has directed the Uganda Police Force to summon Indian Investor Abid Alam to Kasanda police station to record a statement on allegations of torture and rape.

According to credible sources at the Anti-corruption unit, Nakalema today morning talked to Maj. General Sabiiti Muzeeyi and asked him to intervene and assist a one Arthur Mugyenyi who accuses Alam’s workers of torturing his family members and raping his wife in presence of their children.

Sources further revealed that Mugyenyi with the help of their area Member of Parliament Simeo Nsubuga petitioned Nakalema’s anti-corruption unit claiming that they were not helped by the area police when Alam’s goons terrorised them. Last week, Nsubuga said that Alam sent 60 workers to Mugyenyi’s home with machetes and threatened to kill Mugyenyi and his family members.

He said Alam’s workers also cut down Mugyenyi’s banana plantation, destroyed his two houses, and took his 200 cows and 500 goats in a bid to evict him from his land.

Efforts to speak to Alam were futile since his known phone numbers were off.

Ugandans and Africans who have been plying their trade in China have cried to their governments to get them out of China.

According to a video from one of the Ugandans who is locked down in china, that was shared by Kampala Central legislator Mohammad Nsereko, they are being ejected from houses, denied access to health care and ejected from public transport and already 4 of their colleagues have died under unclear circumstances.

“The Chinese are discriminating us, when we enter their busses they all run out of the bus. These people are showing us their true colours, we are asking government to help. The Chinese should allow us to go home instead of forcefully arresting us and testing us,” he said.

He added, “We are being tortured, i call upon government to help us leave this country. Already four of our colleagues are dead. Let them allow us to go home. The landlords are chasing us from their houses and asking for a lot of money in rent yet we are not working. Everywhere we go we are being chased, we are now in hiding.”

Nsereko called upon government to immediately intervene and stop this alleged discrimination and inhuman treatment.

“I have received disturbing reports and videos of Ugandans and Africans in China being treated in a degrading manner. I have been informed that some have been ejected from houses, others denied access to health care and ejected from public transport. This is very unfortunate; we call upon the Ugandan government to intervene immediately in this matter.”
