Ugandans should shun 2016 elections in order not to legitimize President Museveni ‘s fraudulent election.
Having followed the conduct of President Museveni, we should not expect credible elections under his regime with its partisan electoral commission and police . This regime came to power guns blazing and under false pretense of rigged election, but up to nowt the greed and thirst for power being exhibited by President Museveni is still phenomenal as in the previous elections of 1996, 2001. 2006 2011 and up to now it looks to be as if he has learnt nothing and forgotten nothing. President Museveni is now used to beating people into submission using security personal to cause election violence such as police ISO, DSO LDUs armed militias to terrorize Ugandans create a state of fear among voters so that they can see him as the custodian of security . In the past elections we have witnessed soldiers being deployed near voting booths to intimidate opposition supporters and the weak minded voters especially in the rural areas. In Uganda president Museveni has brought a new culture of violence in our society as it has already been reflected in constant violent strikes in schools.
As we winded up 2015 Museveni was back to his best with violence which we saw in Ntungamo this is something that had been brewing up for sometime . Before this incident NRM had openly used under hand methods to undermine Mbabazi’s campaigns wherever he went. ,We saw Tumukunde with his chopper. using taxpayers money bribing people not to attend Mbabazi’s rallies. The question is where do they get this money from. As our hospitals are rotting away. Museveni is so obsessed with staying in power now he has gone an extra mile by renting political crowds The event in Ntungamo was an early sign of telling Ugandans to expect more violent times ahead.
After the Ntungamo skirmishes president Museveni while addressing the press at Mbale state Lodge called those that attacked NRM supporters idiots thugs promised that they will pay dearly wont hide unless they go to heaven .It may not be surprising that President Museveni may have judged, sentenced and guillotined Anie sending him to heaven as promised.According to some sources President Museveni wasn’t happy with Anie after government sending him to guard and spy on Mbabazi .Anie instead joined the Mbabazi camp and was the one identifying among the NRM demonstrators solders that were among the demonstrators this enabled the Mbabazi camp to give them a thoroughly beating that resulted into some of them being hospitalized . With these skirmishes the Electoral Commission ‘s hands were tied because the provocative actions were organized by the NRM camp therefore it couldn’t do anything.Its only General Kale Kayihura that vowed to arrest Mbabazi s supporters that were defending themselves from NRM hooligans that had thrown stones to their convoy as best defence is defence itself .NRM members thought they had monopoly over violence but were taught a good lesson .
Now Mbabazi is having a dose of his own medicine this time its being administered by his former boss Museveni. In Kanungu his home district Mbabazi ‘s posters have been defaced with Museveni s poster s nothing has been done by the concerned authorities , one of his supporters Daniel Ayugi of Abim was picked up by security operatives at Uganda house and tortured. In Lira district Mr Okello was also harassed and assaulted .Again in Bukedea district Mr James Aogon and Mr Okwii Isaac were severely beaten up dragged along the tarmac road resulting in the loss of skin .
With what Mbabazi s experiencing this may be a good lesson for those still serving the dictator that one day if they fall out with him they will face the same fate .
Ugandans should remember that in all the past elections we have been experiencing election violence .I dont think this is new to make Mbabazi lament about mistreatment ,while still in government at no time did we hear him condemn state brutality that was being unleashed on Dr Besigye as of now he’s crying of state harassment.Ugandans should know that no regime lasts forever. .All Ugandans need to stand up and condemn Museveni s brutal acts in the strongest terms possible .We are requesting the international community to come out and help Ugandans to get rid of President Museveni before he begins his terror on innocent Ugandans using crime preventers
