THE EROSION OF CIVIL LIBERTIES: A DIRECT ATTACK ON THE CONSTITUTION.

A very important point of reference to begin with, the awesome words of A.J.DarkHome: “The values most important to us are always the most easily exploitable”

In the book, THE JOURNEY IS HOME, the renowned theologian Nelle Murton has these words: “Welcome to the Human Race”. It is now very clear that the Museveni government is not in any way going to respect the constitutional rights and Freedoms of the people. It is a shame that a nation which to begin with has God inclusive in the national creed continues to defile terribly everything there is to human decency and Personhood. For a while now this has gone on and yet the populace watches on. I do not blame myself. I have done my part and if anything I don’t like, that many of us hate, I will not have myself to blame. I warned you of foisting a tyrant and demagogue to nation in the call to do the math on the P10 Website and certainly, the agents of darkness didn’t take heed. Uganda is a very young nation but if we don’t drop the childish ways as the scripture says, we are headed into something we may regret the next half century.
Quickly, the most idiotic thing the Museveni government has done is waging war on the media houses. This is not funny. It is one of the dumbest and smartest strategies that I have seen especially when it comes to them trying to cover their ‘rabid asses’ but fantastically embarrassing themselves—because every time they do that, like they did earlier during the elections, they lay bare the hypocrisies they have long tried to sweep under the rug. The media is significantly very important by every stretch of imagination. If I were them actually, I would stop being stupid at least for once, and let the world judge the story rightfully: the Museveni government have reached a point where they have no shame and remorse—they expose their ugliness in broad daylight and annoyingly ask, what do you even think you can do?

Maybe they need to see some action.
In a very short expletive recently on facebook, I tried to explain how these agents of darkness have taken the silence of the common man who is hurting so much as weakness. Looks like by virtue of the fact that the Civil liberties are stepped on one by one, we have been reduced to just barking dogs. I think it’s about time, we reached out for plan B.I am not a fan of plan B,C & D but as goes the American saying: “When Plan A fails , Plan B is already in Progress”. Let us do this folks, I am so sick and tired of these evil men taking us for granted. I want to make a very serious warning about what the men of greed like the apologists of this rotten regime are capable of doing—they steal, kill and destroy. The iconic Joseph Conrad while writing about the colonial rulers in 1902 has  better words for you and I in one of his masterpieces, the HEART OF DARKNESS: “to tear treasure out of the bowels of the land was their desire, with no moral purpose at the back of it than there is in burglars breaking into a safe”. By now you know that Museveni and his agents are as guilty as sin, don’t you? Do not answer; I am not taking No for an answer.

Do not go to bed, stay awake.
The activists may never have to go to bed to take a nap. Going to bed may never yield out to this long journey of unflinching sacrifice to voice out the concerns of the so many millions who relate with your pain—beware the agents of darkness are out there trying to sell their so lame narrative. The other day I saw Museveni at state House (as they chose speaker and deputy) saying that anyone who says that the NRM didn’t win the election is mad. Let me be the first one to comfortably tell him that I am so mad—If that will make him happy. The clincher though is that: “I am not mentally incapacitated as maybe his insult but rather mad because he continues to foist himself unto us even when he knows that he lost massively”. I have no shame; pull the plug, the very desperate NRM Party should just be forgotten already.
The city is under attack and to try a nap at this point in time would only be empowering the very rotten apple this regime is selling. I will leave a few final thoughts for them though: the nation is grateful for what you have done and very sad about that you haven’t done that you keep cheering on—steady progress, so I hear, when: the healthcare is completely gone bonkers, unemployment rates have hit the ceiling than ever recorded in the history of this nation and most importantly though not the least, very highly defiled systems and the systemic harassment of the truth Sayers—the opposition change agents.

I may go easy on Museveni but not his minions.
I may be so mad at Museveni but let me tell you, my angst is more with those that make sure this tyrant stays around, you are the real problem. If you continue to protect and defend something that you know is wrong with everything you applaud, certainly you carry the blame more, unless you say that you are puppets that took the deepest fall. What Museveni has taken advantage of is just one thing—he takes advantage of a weakened immune system, the constitution, and turns it topsturvy just to support his lame narrative. See, you are the problem since you tell him, go on boy. As I said before in my earlier columns, double speak took root in the system of the NRM and every new day, there is a victim. While we decry the ugliness of the Museveni regime, some may want to rest it all upon the cult leader Museveni, but I refuse that myopic insight. The disciples are the ones that have failed to see what we are dealing with here—the existential proof is that everything that he has messed with especially as regards the civil liberties, it has always been you: you are the violent case of dysentery that finally kills the frail man who was already sick with a thousand other exotic diseases. The untrained eye may say the man died because he was vomiting blood, but in truth he was vomiting blood because he was dying.

Why I ditched Museveni on the road.
For over ten years of my young childhood, I really loved Museveni until I learned that if Museveni became President after the two terms, I would possibly never become president, this theory tends to be building a muscle. On this note, I will try to be a little expansive with an explanation: I fear every day that with the help of his disciples, he may declare life Presidency, something I can’t live with. Because, as Alexander Hamilton once said: If we must have an enemy at the head of government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures
Basically, I only see the willful ignorance of the disciples of Museveni because they are aware they are not only derailing the last ounce of redemption but also affirming their quest for the bottom of the barrel.

Your Vote counts make sure it is counted.
The problem with the Ugandan institutional systems is that they have adopted a very deadly mechanism of rule by the law and the rule of the law. Note the difference: the former tends to realize some particular segments of the constitution while starving the other important aspects as long as the ones applied in the show of democracy suit their narrative. For instance, an election is organized, the election is not free and free, petitions will be filled and accepted but the court ruling will be a constant—insufficient evidence to have the election results nullified: the essence of such a sham election is every explanation I can find for intellectual dishonesty that continues to gut down our politics and leadership.
Some say we should just let go and let it rest but I refuse that advice with the bitter-most anger. If you choose to shut up in times of injustice, you are directly empowering injustice, the better we keep exposing it as it is.Yes, I am a Christian, but the hardest thing to do is to forgive Museveni and his mean-spirited minions right now—because I am not ready. As Sharon Salzberg put it: Forgiveness that is insincere, forced or premature can be more psychologically damaging than authentic bitterness and rage”. There is so much at stake and to just let go would wearing a mask I can’t afford because my mental lexicon doesn’t play along with hypocritical villainy as is the case with most politicians. Ps,I am not necessarily a politician, I am an activist for Advocacy and change.

PS:
Do not. I repeat, do not let anyone treat you as though they are doing you a favor when it comes to the inalienable rights. The constitution provides in Article 20 that the rights are not granted by the state but rather are constitutionally provided. If you read more in Article 28, you will find a right to a fair hearing. More rights are ingrained in articles 43 and 50 with procedural guidelines emphasizing what is currently on the missive in the judicial systems—that is the problem I have with the institutions here because they depart from these truths and rule by selective snippets that only suit their soiled and impure narrative. Stay put for the Prize, do not give up on Activism, and stand tall with what is right and Pray Unceasingly.-

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.

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.

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!
