Sad; NUP abducted Councillor held incommunicado for 25 days now



Today marks 25 days since this comrade Muwanga Owen Martin was abducted by the military! He remains under incommunicado detention. He is an elected Councillor in Kyengera, and impassioned activist. Ironically, he was taken away by heavily armed operatives moving in a drone UAL 119V as he returned home after the screening of the Documentary about the gross violations of human rights. Although the police spokesperson admitted that he is in the custody of ‘security’, he has neither been produced in court. His family, lawyers, doctors, and friends have all been denied access to him. Today, our legal team will be asking court to issue a Habeas Corpus order for his release. Very sad state of affairs! #BringBackOurPeople

Bobi Wine outraged by rampant poverty in Oyam



President Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine was today outraged by the obscene poverty in Oyam District and Northern Uganda at large.

Bobi had gone to drum up for support for the NUP candidate Daniel Okello who is tussling it out with four other candidates.

In his message, Bobi expressed his disgust at the NRM regime which he says has impoverished the people of Northern Uganda.

Bobi Wine statement;

We spent the day in Oyam North Constituency preaching the message of liberation to our people there! The population in Northern Uganda has been deliberately impoverished and subdued. The levels of poverty are unbelievable. It was very painful seeing old people asking us if we moved with some food because they are starving! The NRM machinery only comes around during elections. It is then that these people get to see the “government” through the long military convoys driving around regime officials! It is during elections that these people are bribed with as little as 500 Uganda shillings and given new empty promises.

Well, we made several stop-overs around the constituency with our comrade Daniel Okello, and yet again reminded these people about the extent of the problem our country faces and everyone’s duty to deliver our nation from this mess. I am grateful to our people for the overwhelming reception, despite all the intimidation and military deployment everywhere! Uganda will be free!

The Constitutional Court will today begin re-hearing the 2022 impeachment case of Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament (MP), Francis Zaake.

Zaake petitioned the Constitutional Court seeking its declaration to, among other things; overturn his controversial removal from the position of commissioner of parliament for allegedly insulting Speaker Anita Among on social media.

This was after Zaake and his lawyer complained of a delayed judgment on June 5 before the court’s administrator Justice Geoffrey Kiryabiwre who informed them that court suffered manpower shortage on quorum following the promotion of Justice Steven Musota to the Supreme Court.

Justice Musota was among the five justices who heard Zaake’s petition in June 2022.

Other justices are; Catherine Bamugemereire, Christopher Izama Madrama, Muzamiru Mutangula Kibeedi, and Irene Mulyagonja.

In his petition, Zaake details the events that took place prior to his alleged removal.

He also claims that each member of the parliament’s committee on Rules, Privileges, and Discipline, who participated in his removal, received a kick-back of Shs6 million.

A total of 155 MPs voted to remove Zaake from the position after being found guilty of disparaging the speaker.

“What a consummate liar Museveni is,” Bobi rips dictator M7 over pretentious letter on Bukedea by-election violence



President Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert popularly known as Bobi Wine has slammed the dictator, days after a letter critical of the Bukedea by-election violence emerged on social media platforms.

In a missive, Bobi accuses Mr. Museveni with being a consummate liar and a hypocrite who purports to condemn the wrong doings of his regime yet in actual sense he is the architect of the misfortunes in the electoral spaces.

Below is the post by President Bobi Wine;

What a consumate lier Mr. Museveni is!

He knows so well that he is still in power today because of these same crimes and even worse that he committed against the people of Uganda in 2021. Yet here he is now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

He murdered, abducted and tortured hundreds of our people. Blocked our campaigns in most areas. Threw us out of radio stations. Arrested our polling agents. Switched off the internet. Deployed the military to tick all ballot papers at many polling stations. Declared a 100% voter turnout at over 409 polling stations — including voters who had long died. Abducted people who had collected our DR Forms and up to now some are still missing. Intimidated judges of the Supreme Court, and is now persecuting Justice Esther Kisakye for ruling in our favor. And this is just a fraction of the many other electoral crimes and crimes against humanity he committed. Yet here he is now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

In the Kayunga by-election where NUP candidate Hon. Harriet Nakwedde won at all polling stations, he shamelessly declared his candidate winner and even congratulated him. Yet here he is now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

In the Omoro by-election, his thugs arrested 62 polling agents out of the 84 polling stations. They spent the night before the election bribing the poor people with little money, salt and sugar. His criminals moved all over with pre-ticked ballot papers in numberless vehicles. Yet here he is now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

In the Kasese by-election, the military took over polling stations and ticked so many ballots in favor of his candidate. RDCs were deployed to give out money and ferry imposters to participate in the voting. Yet here he is now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

In the Pallisa by-election, the NUP candidate was severely intimidated and eventually coerced into dropping out of the race. He was promised hundreds of millions of tax payers’ money. He later came around crying that they had given him a condition to get a letter from our Party dropping him out of the election if he was to get his ‘payment’. Yet here is Museveni now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

In the Soroti by-election, the FDC candidate won fair and square. But Museveni’s thugs were not afraid to do the unthinkable. They arrested several leaders and sent them out of Soroti. They distributed pre-ticked ballot papers under the watch of Byabakama. When the citizens protested, they were quickly arrested and battered. Yet here he is now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

In Kisoro, election observers including religious leaders were assaulted. Polling agents were arrested, placed in numberless vehicles and driven away. They beat up people and went around distributing money. Yet here he is now, claiming to care about the quality of elections!

Well, that is Museveni for you — a pathological liar. It is amazing how at his age he still lies with such confidence! Very, very sad!
