IN DEFENSE OF Dr. KIIZA BESIGYE: Andrew Mwenda, Lets PUT THIS TO BED, at ONCE!




In the TV Series, REVENGE, Chronicling the life of a Distraught Emily Thorne: SEASON 1, EPISODE 7 "Charade”, As Hamlet said to Ophelia, "God has given you one face and you make yourself another." The battle between these two halves of identity who we are and who we pretend to be is unwinnable. (This is referring to Shakespeare's famous tragedy Hamlet. These words are said to Ophelia, Hamlet's girlfriend, in anger and frustration). Just as there are two sides to every story, there are two sides to every person. One that we reveal to the world and another we keep hidden inside. A duality governed by the balance of light and darkness. Within each of us is the capacity for both good and evil. But those of us who are able to blur the moral dividing line hold the true power.
I am an ardent lover of the Law and Scripture and I always believed that: “no matter who is President, Jesus Christ is King”. There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labor in His service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them. Truth is something like the cluster of the vine: if we would have wine from it, we must bruise it; we must press and squeeze it many times. The bruiser's feet must come down joyfully upon the bunches, or else the juice will not flow; and they must well tread the grapes, or else much of the precious liquid will be wasted. So we must, by meditation, tread the clusters of truth, if we would get the wine of consolation therefrom.

From the MEDITATIONS OF MARCUS AURELIUS, ELEVENTH BOOK: Pg. 98 of 128 we read: “To grow together in a matter of a good correspondence and affection; but not in a matter of opinions. They that shall oppose thee in thy right courses, as it is not in their Power to divert thee from thy good action, so neither let it be to divert thee from good affection towards them. But be it thy care to keep thyself constant in both; both in a right judgment and action, and in true meekness towards them that either shall do their endeavor to hinder thee, or aleast will be displeased with thee for what hast done. For to fail(either in the one that give over ,for fear, or in the other to forsake thy natural affection towards him, who by nature is both thy friend and kinsman) is equally base, as much as savoring the disposition of a cowardly fugitive soldier”

#FREEBESIGYE:"There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a timewhen we fail to protest."― Elie Wiesel

 “Having then a great high priest, who hath passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God; let us hold fast our confession.


For we have not a high priest that cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but one that hath been in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” .



There is a very dangerous notion that the NRM apologists and their boss subscribe to; “that every critique no matter how true is wrong”. I accept, Let me the fool here, but accept this rebuttal. The EC boss Badru Kiggundu, Uganda Police and their architect Mr.Museveni + 1, Andrew Mwenda, among the many have built some frenetic agenda—you are welding our nation march head-long into tyranny and despotism and the cattle following are quite aware of this, and yet enthusiastic about, where the cattle train is going. Now lest you think that my angst is with just Mwenda (and a large part to it),my biggest angst is with everyone who applauds and empowers the ugliness.Mr.Museveni will not repudiate having the interests of the privileged future taken care of(while the majority are taken for a ride; it hurts that his personally infatuated YES-MEN can wake up to this heart-wrenching reality)The singular explanation I have for such kinds of people though is; they have long been repudiated from Freedom and independence and Museveni’s operating procedure of do as  I say has sunk in them so deep.  But in the end, the world will know the truth. Apparently, truth is the most valuable thing, we have to economize it.There could be smatterings of Justice needed to start it off to the camp of Freedom—where we will see the Barrack and Michelle Obama of Uganda walk with ease to state house to serve by the will of the people.
There has been a very false claim led by Andrew Mwenda that Dr.Besigye didn’t win the election but only won a ‘propaganda war’—I totally refute those flat-out lies. The good news, my Skepticism is a refreshing alternative. Museveni’s candidacy was so dreary—the dreariness begun with a move to have himself as a sole candidate for the NRM Party for the 5th term in a row; that’s when his best ally the former Prime Minister, John Patrick Amama Mbabazi,was pushed out of the limo and told his lifts in the limo are done with(If you remember, he has since been looked at as an alien)—this is something you should relate with Andrew Mwenda;do you remember when you called Museveni a Villager and you were imprisoned? You sure have learnt nothing and forgotten nothing. Where did you even find the nerve to question what the FDC has learned from losing four times? I will call Mr.Museveni what he is and please tag along because this shoe fits you perfectly, Andrew Mwenda.He is a tyrant and pathological liar—even if the whole country goes to the voting booth and votes him (which can never happen), I can never murder my conscience empowering the ugliness. You are a reflexive liar and he is a clinical narcissist; yes you two make a good team, kudos! Let me make this a little easier for you to understand; in the words of Larry. P. Arn: “Tyrants are hated because they rule by force—one of the things tyrants have to do is longevity in office—because, as Aristotle said, tyrannies don’t last very long—is they have to declare war on every kind of excellence. Especially contemplative kinds, especially kinds owed to God. Because they can’t really get their way with people who think there is something higher than them, and they really can’t get their way with excellent people,so they tend to do things to corrupt the people
Dr.Besigye has paid his dues and surely for anyone to try and cheat us out of the hard-won Victory is trying our Patience and yet someone who can’t afford his own lies is out here promoting the vilest gospel of foolery I have read and heard in a long time. He enthusiastically applauded candidate Museveni and put on a pedestal while presenting Dr.Besigye as a soar loser.Thats the biggest air of pestilence this article is going to clear. I am one of the people who sees hopeful possibilities (even if the Museveni government and his minions fantastically try to blur these hopes) even when ‘others’ claim that  it is going to hell in a hand basket;I will not let cynics like you do eye-surgery on me, this I promise you. I have decided to think of my life as a trajectory instead of plans, it makes more sense. Show me one person who makes others suffer and I will show you who is working with him to pass on the suffering even to other more people. Earlier in the early days of the Presidential race, when Andrew Mwenda endorsed candidate Museveni, I didn’t get surprised. I have gotten used to his hypocrisies that there is nothing that I take serious that he says anymore. I was only shocked when he told President Obama to stay away from Africa in a letter he wrote after he had just left Addis Ababa for Washington DC.I couldn’t contain it, so I rebutted, actually in my 2ND Letterto President Obama, I made sure he understand that there are Ugandans who appreciate what he said while in Africa. Something that I am going to do again in this article. Let me ask you something, do these lessons from the iconic Nelson Mandela strike you as important? I pray I give you the best rebuttal since you had the audacity to ask for it (If it doesn’t satisfy you, I challenge you a debate on national TV, of your choice).I can only hope that he was compensated for his soul when he sold it.I have no idea where this is leading but my Prayer is that my name will be engraved upon the marble of history as one that didn’t shrink in the moment when the truth was obvious to the discerning eye.

I would like us to read Laurence Ferlinghetti’s poem together: “PITY THE NATION
Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
And whose shepherds mislead them
Pity the nation whose leaders are liars,
Whose sages are silenced,
And whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity the nation that raises not its Voice,
Except to praise the conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero.
And aims to rule by force and by torture
Pity the nation—oh, pity the people who allow the rights to erode
My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty”.
If you are applauding what candidate Museveni and his minions have done to silence Dr.Besigye,you are very terrible human being, much as I can bet my bottom dollar that you aren’t having lesser nightmares. You are explicitly shoving in a man who promises to to rule as a despot obedient only to his fickle and ever changing whims. You are deliberately playing your lot choose tyranny either because you are too obtuse to see it ahead of time or too lazy or too pathetic to care.Please,implore you Andrew, do not be a lunatic: when your car is headed for a cliff, the last thing you want is a quiet flag man.
Silence in the face of evil is evil itself: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.
In the word of the Scripture, Ephesians 5:11: “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness but instead expose them”—thus sayeth the LORD.I knows you do not believe in GOD (I personally heard you say it when you came to speak us when I was a University student at Uganda Christian University, I haven’t forgotten).But I will call your attention  to the  word of the Scripture in 1 Samuel Chapter 8 the strayed people made a very terrible mistake and they asked : “Give us a king”, the people pleaded. “We want to be like other nations”, the people pleaded. They abandon God’s way. The prophet Samuel warned Israel that there would be consequences for allowing a king to rule over them, but in spite of the warnings—they still demanded a king and they wanted someone other than God to protect them from their enemies—to fight for them. They chose man to be the source of their greatness not God. And how did it end? NOT GOOD. To me, the gospel Andrew Mwenda is preaching strikes me as presenting to ours Mr.Museveni as a King to whom he lays the future of each one of us unto him, I have never had a nightmare of this magnitude and Andrew Mwenda is to blame!!

Now allow me to first tell you about Andrew Mwenda & I: Compare & Contrast

·         Both Mwenda and I are Voracious readers
·         Mwenda is very well travelled; I am not necessarily well travelled.
Mwenda is very popular, I am not, and I am comfortable where I am.
·         Mwenda is a hypocrite; I am not and abhor hypocrisy to the letter.
·         Mwenda believes Dr.Besigye didn’t win the election; I refute and defy those lies!
·         Mwenda loves hanging in comfort zones, I do not
·         Mwenda is the ‘old man’ of his clan; I am the ‘young man’ of my clan.
·         Mwenda doesn’t believe in God, I DO!!

Now listen, St. Paul to the Corinthians says: “Do not be bound together with the unbelievers; for what partnership has righteousness, or what fellowship has light with Darkness?” –2 Corinthians 6:14, NASB.
The Scripture in the gospel of Luke 16:3 says: “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate one and love the other, or you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t serve both money and God
Can a man claim Christ and turn around and cheat and steal and expect to be saved of his sins? Accepting Christ means you are trying to follow Him. He atoned for our sins, but He expects us to act differently. We view the trinity of the God-Head as: one, God the eternal father, two: His son Jesus Christ & three: God the Holy Spirit. We pray to the father in the name of Jesus Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ…that our children may know to what source they look for a remission of sins”—-Book of Mormon, Nephi 25:26.Void of any substantial biblical moorings, people are swept away by the impassioned rhetoric of a demagogue (PS: A demagogue is a leader who obtains power by means of impassioned rhetoric).

PS:
I do not write this to you as an authority figure but one citizen who strongly believes that all avenues of truth no matter how dimly discernible should explored. I have said this before and I will emphatically say it again. I want to call upon all the authority figures to try and much as they can to do this for me.About Dr.Besigye’s supporters: they want someone to protect them and their way of life (a life very miserable and way-different from that of the privileged few)vilifying them will not change their minds. Listening and expressing empathy is the only path to light .Of course, doing this requires that we face our own fears first. This is the greatest challenge we as individuals   face through the evolution and awakening of our collective human consciousness. This way, we all win, Peace and security wins: “ONE UGANDA, ONE PEOPLE”. Again, do not write this as an authority figure but only as a citizen who is very much worried and cares about his country. Where I overstate the truth, bear with me and forgive me.And, where I am short of the truth, I pray the LORD shines a light in those places~Grace Abaho Sr, P10 AUTHOR

Grab him by the ballot

Morality can be so interesting to watch when a very immoral person like Donald Trump is playing the morality police. It has been a turn of events since the last debate —when the Donald learned he was losing terribly, he resorted to the final deep end drive into the conquest for the bottom of the barrel—his campaign has been always about impure rhetoric but this time, he didn’t pretend for a second, what I don’t understand though is why a man would pride in being remembered for the creepiest things ever said for a man as old as 70 years. I have seen the very big hypocrites of the republican party ditch their party leader on the side of the road albeit I can’t fathom why and how they stood on his side this long—if there’s one sure thing, putting up with the stupidity that tags along being in the Donald’s cult is a twenty four-hour exercise equivalence, it’s a very tough place to be: full of vile utterances and always denying facts even understood by a five year old.

We were eight Years in Power, a legacy adored.

When I wrote the memoir for my role model , President Obama and his beautiful family, I thought I was saying bye with tears of joy and I wouldn’t be tempted to write anything again before I met him in person—well, I was so wrong, I have since written many pieces where his legendary name surfaces as a re-enforcer to my points [remember, as Mrs. Clinton said recently while delivering her acceptance speech , he is the ‘explainer in chief’]. The beautiful first family:Photo taken off the web What I have learned from this great man and his phenomenal wife, FLOTUS Michelle Obama, is absolutely beyond description: all I can say is that it makes me wake up each day with morale to work hard and one day inspire people like these two have inspired my person over the years. Yes, I have learned over the years that good deeds are contagious—we either do and write about them or live by them our entire lives.That maybe the greatest riddle of our time is the unforgettable question from the iconic

Hillary Clinton is Presidential

I want to begin with what Donald said about Hillary as he openly endorsed her for the job: “she is a fighter and she never quits, I admire that about her”. The last many three decades of the republican witch-hunt on the Clinton family have molded the incoming 45th of the United States, Hillary Clinton: she and her husband have been through the fire but have still soared so high, proof positive that nothing baffles the achemes of the enemy like a composed soul. Being a Clinton maybe hard but might as well be one of the most rewarding experiences in self-composure and self-discovery. As I said in the first debate commentary ; for those who had doubts, she mopped the floor with an ignorant bigot—she did it again and we are proud of her. The last couple of days have been filled with the most sickening news of the republican flag bearer’s advice; “Grab their p***y”; seeing many republicans un-endorse their nominee and billions of people around the world have the republican party for

When they go low, we go high.

T his wallpaper and I almost fought a duel to point of death, to take over on my phone and laptop screen saver space, but I had to give up very easily because these beautiful words come from one of the most inspirational people in my life . President Obama you are a very blessed man, no wonder you immediately proudly tweeted: “ incredible speech by an incredible woman.Couldn't be more proud and our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS.I love you, Michelle ”. Michelle Obama stole the show, rather perfectly it turns out—and then there was Sen.Booker,they certainly had to be prime speakers, leave alone for Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders who never minces words when it comes to putting Donald Trump in his place. I have waited for this day, almost very impatiently, until it dawned—it was a very rewarding night for me here in Uganda after the continuous and disastrous bigotry from the Trump camp. I must say with pride that if there is anything

Hillary Clinton is certainly prepared to be President

President Obama & Sec Clinton having a chit-chat T he Question of whether she is the most qualified candidate America has ever had for a presidential candidate has never been so answered; for those who had doubts, she came to stage and spoke it with illustration(s), verve and swagger throughout the 90 minutes of the debate at Hofstra University. She eloquently made it clear to her opponent that not only did she prepare for the debate, that her opponent seemed to have been so yappy about; but also proved and lived to the hype of what was expected of her: she mopped the floor with the Donald, I have never laughed so loud, at an ignorant bigot being thumped by an intelligent woman.

ENVISIONING PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON: “THE BARACK-HILLARY LEGACY”

Photo source: daily dot I am deeply honored to be telling the vision that has since been on my mind for a while in the most possible way I have ever imagined. I have wracked my mind how best I would tell it; it was not until I was admiringly looking at Mrs. Clinton’s photos  recently and I got the picture (above) that would best tell what I envision in the Presidency of the first female President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton . As I have noted time and again, if there is anything that I admire about President Obama and Mrs. Clinton among the very many things, it’s their authentic selves—especially in the realm of political maturity , for purposes of this article. As I noted earlier in the road to President Hillary Clinton , her resilience is certainly a thing anyone in the world would admire, she is indeed is a fighter—“fighting for us, we are stronger together”, do those words ring a bell? By now they should be the words every sane American has subscrib

Dear President Obama, thank you for being.

Dear President Obama,  I greet you in the name above all names. I waited to write to you my second letter after your final SOTU (state of the union) address not as my last letter to you but as a letter of appreciation for the almost concluded two terms of office .Allow me to first express how so humbled to write to a man whose name has been engraved upon the marble of history. I have fortunately had a few days to prepare otherwise I would make very terrible sentences herein. Again, I am lucky to address a man whose kindred spirit is ingrained in equality and the pursuit of happiness. The last time I wrote to you, I critiqued you. Today, I have very deep gratitude for how fundamentally influential you are and will forever be to my Life and I pray to the life of my descendants. I remember well, in the 2007 democratic primaries that shaped the arc of history of the American Dream, I didn’t support you then.Actually,apart from the inescapable thing we have in common,blackness,I

Barack . H. Obama, the Lasting Imprint.

I may never be the President of the United States or even my country, Uganda , but I am going to die one day and when I am no longer here, my son and those that read about my name should know that President Obama & Michelle have inspired my person, a lot. I was reading Christopher Hitchens book, Mortality, a while ago and reviews of his memoir, Hitchens 22 , these words really touched me a lot: “ I have more than once woken up feeling like death. But nothing prepared me for the early morning in June when I came to consciousness feeling as If I were shackled to my own corpse ”—he goes on to quote Saul Bellow : “ Death is the dark backing that a mirror needs if we are able to see anything ”. I told my surrogate mother, Tabitha Scaife , I would do this before I leave the face of the earth and she said, “ Do it sonny, I believe you are very well equipped ”. Ma, thanks for elevating my confidence . Love you, to Life!
