Ugandans want a country in which we are all equal under the law to enjoy our civil liberties, dignity and contributing to our collective advancement and national defense. It is the basic function of the State to preserve and protect.
Your partisan efforts in building a terror machine however clearly are for a Uganda in which a small minority have crowned themselves LORDS and exclusive owners of the Uganda estate and the rest of us taking on the role of powerless SUBJECTS with no rights of protection from your KIFEESI police, Sir.
Ugandan is not cowards as many of your friends have chosen to assume & test fate. They will NOT beg you or your friends in treating them with dignity. They demand and will continue to demand that you do because they have paid you and continue to pay you to protect them. So the people you perceive as weak are resilient Ugandans who love their country. Their patience with you and your friends testing fate abusing them with impunity is rooted in their love for country.
They are warning you to stop killing their children with impunity. Women are crying for their children you cripple through torture. The wanton abuse of citizens rights is now unacceptable. Yet they are still hopeful that someone will listen and change course. They still believe in their country bequeathed to them by their forefathers. Ugandans know the country belongs to them. The Lords whom you serve as guarantor are just mere custodians.
The moment they are convinced by your actions that the country no longer belongs to them; then their patience will have run out. Unfortunately, you and I don’t know when this will happen. It is the reason why I refer your actions and arrogance to testing fate.
The “law” you are “protecting” is the walking STICK of the “LORDS” against the SUBJECTS who form the majority aching for a livelihood and paying taxes to the oppressor you serve. Before you forget, the current LORDS today you are working overtime to protect were SUBJECTS a few years ago and did not even own a bicycle. As recent as 1986, most of them were hapless poor citizens(subjects) demanding the same protection from another group of state operatives who controlled the state of the time.
When Gen.Sejusa was still perceived to be powerful holding some levers of state power in Kampala, it was thought he was the architect and anchor of violence against the population. Ugandans have overcome many despots over the years. And quite honestly, Ugandans are not afraid of you or your friends with whom you are consumed by a false sense of security.
In trying so hard to protect Mr.Museveni’s power schemes, Gen.Kaihura you are trying so hard to be the guarantor of a rotten regime by building a criminal anti-people kifeesi police. How do you turn a police force into a criminal gang for terrorizing the very people they are supposed to protect? Stop planting fat seeds of destruction of what remains of the nation called Uganda. Uganda must be for all Ugandans not a protectorate of a chosen few.
The methods being deployed in Kampala against the population we have seen before in Libya. The reason Libyans burnt down their country is because the dictator abused them so much that they wanted nothing to do with him in their lives. So the seeds of destruction of Libya were planted exactly by people like Kaihura who thought they loved Libya more than other Libyans.
Two years ago Mr.Museveni during one of his many State of the nation’s addresses applauded IGP.Gen.Kale Kaihura for a job well done calling him an NRM cadre.
Since 2009, from the Kayunga riots, security operatives have gunned down unarmed civilians in cold blood in many parts of the country with no accountability. This explains the recent tacit endorsement from the IGP that police brutality is now part an official cookbook of the Uganda Police Force.
The options for Gen.Kale Kaihura and those he thinks he serves are very limited. The country is tired and increasingly impatient with Mr.Museveni. And there is no doubt after 30 years in power the man had to wear down and his popularity too. The data available on the inhuman treatment of Ugandans by security forces is glaringly unacceptable and a recipe for instability. The people can only hold on so much for sanity to prevail. The anger simmering in the population will be sparked by just one more event and Kaihura will never ever want to wear a Police or Military uniform again.
Gen.Kaihura you are a small pawn in the whole grand scheme of things. When everything is removed from you, you will be shocked how light you are in the public space. You were not bigger than Gen.Sejusa during his hay days. You will get off this stage badly. We know you are just a front like Gen.Sejusa was back in the days. You are the bad cop while Muhoozi is acting the good cop in the background. We know Gen.Muhoozi whom you claim to be your “friend” is the author of this violence against civilians. You are the poor executioner and the man supposed to speak and defend all this police brutality against Ugandans.
Recently you blamed the media for reporting against Police brutality. Why blame the media for reporting what your criminal institution is doing to civilians? You have assassinated Ugandans calling it SELF DEFENSE. You have ABDUCTED Ugandans calling it police work. You have tortured suspects in detention calling it INVESTIGATIONS and intelligence gathering. You have been heard on audio recording actively undermining political opponents of your benefactor contrary to your constitutional mandate.
There is a problem. Mr.Museveni is an old man and some of us respect him for just that. He has done his modest bit. He would wish to do much more. But his son Gen.Muhoozi who many of you are now working for to extend his father’s stay in power is going to cause Uganda problems. The seeds for the destruction of Uganda to uproot this “Museveni” and anything associated with it have been planted and you are holding the small hole.
Either we build a Uganda of shared dreams for all of us to live comfortably or we shall have to destroy it completely for everybody so we rebuild something that we all can live in share comfortably.
