Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Published

on

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.

Is Johnson Byabashaija courting Enid Kukunda for protection?

Published

on

The very amiable Commissioner General of Prisons Canon Johnson Byabashaija was recently sighted with President Y K Tibuhaburwa Museveni’s second wife Enid Kukunda as the two had a very secretive meeting in one of the city hangouts.

According to our informers, the two seem to be in a deep conversation that they wouldn’t allow a housefly pass around. However, sources further reveal that Byabashaija could have courted the second lady for protection given that he has amassed a lot of wealth and could be a subject of investigations.

Our sources reveal that Byabashaija who carries himself as Mr.I know it all hasn’t met Madam Enid alone but a host of others with connections to the centre of power in the country.

Suspending Campaigns helps Museveni-Joseph Kabuleta

Published

on

Presidential Candidate Joseph kabuleta has rejected the idea of suspending campaigns as a way to show dissatisfaction with the arrest of fellow candidate Bobi wine who was arrested by security organs for allegedly flouting COVID-19 guidelines during campaigns. This follows a spate of campaign suspensions by other candidates such as Gen. Mugisha Muntu, Gen. Henry Tumukunde and John Katumba. Below is Joseph Kabuleta’s full statement

𝐊𝐀𝐁𝐔𝐋𝐄𝐓𝐀 𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐓𝐄𝐌𝐄𝐍𝐓 𝐎𝐍 𝐀𝐑𝐑𝐄𝐒𝐓 𝐎𝐅 𝐏𝐑𝐄𝐒𝐈𝐃𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐈𝐀𝐋 𝐂𝐀𝐍𝐃𝐈𝐃𝐀𝐓𝐄𝐒

Suspending campaigns as a form of protest over the brutal and mindless arrest of our colleagues Patrick Oboi Amuriat and Hon Kyagulanyi Robert can only serve the interests of one person — Museveni.

Boycott would be an effective strategy if Museveni was still capable of being shamed straight, but he isn’t. He can choose to rent crowds in their thousands to follow him on the campaign trail, and in the same twist arrest other candidates for gathering crowds of (genuine) supporters.

If there is one thing that Dr Besigye’s 20 years of defiance showed us, it is that the man we are dealing with is beyond any shame or embarrassment. He is beyond the pale. For him the end justifies the means. By suspending their campaigns over the various injustices and unleveled ground, our colleagues Mugisha Muntu, Henry Tumukunde and other boycotters prove that they entered this race under the illusion of fair play.

I am under no such illusions.

We are 11 candidates, which makes for a football team. If two of our players are temporarily and unjustly taken off the pitch, our best chances of victory lie in the remaining 9 players pulling up their socks and attacking the opponent ferociously. But if they walk off the pitch in protest, the match is easily won by the opponent. And remember, our opponent also happens to be the referee.

I know for certain that if I had been the one brutally arrested, I would have desired that POA and Bobi Wine carry on the fight in my absence. That is why I am not going to suspend my campaign to try and shame Museveni into levelling the ground, because I know he is incapable of shame.
