MURDER IN THE PEARL OF AFRICA
Let me bring this on Ground…
1: A business man comes all away from Ivory Coast to make his projects and developments in Uganda spends millions and Billions, Now a Ugandan Tycoon I won’t mention comes in claiming the land on which the Ivorian’s project is yet to start is his and he is not will to sell or sit on a round table! Anhaaa here I come, The Ivorian takes the case to Police and the case file is handed over to The Late AIGP, since 2003 to date nothing like Justice to the Ivorian business man who spend millions and Billions…..Later news comes in (AIGP assassinated)
2: Nakasero Mosque recently was invaded and torn into pieces due to terrorism alerts, The Late comes out in public and says “What police did was in order because Moslems all over the world are suspected to have links with terror groups, so We did wat we were supposed to do As police”!! later (AIGP Assassinated)
3: Kasese attacks left hundreds mourning no joke on this one guys pple lost lives out there. Now see this scenario, the late comes out in public after all those incidents that were visibly noticed and said, ” The people of Kasese and Uganda at large should know that police and Army out there in Kasese is not responsible for the killings going on police is keeping law and order and Army is protecting lives” This pained many who witnessed what was taking place and caused more harm than good…..Later (AIGP assassinated)
4: We all saw this and it was obvious, Among all senior police officers the late had 100% ability to be the successor of the Out contracted IGP (Kale Kayihura) which silently didn’t hav much support by these fellow long serving senior officers….And here later (AIGP Assassinated)
Now all these 4 gathered information and suspected ideas should be used to come out with the reason why this poor man was Assassinated!!March 27, 2017 at 2:26 pm #589
EAST AFRICAN OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES ARE PARTLY TO BLAME FOR INCREASED INSTABILITIES IN THE REGION.
This whole Subject has about 6 factors and I will be for purposes expounding then clearly like one who eats an elephant, take a piece by piece.
Unlike Rwanda and Tanzania where Democracy seems to have an upscale that limits Political activities Pre and Post Elections, Kenya, Uganda and South Sudan have in the past five years suffered the consequences of laying a democratic surface that open for everyone as it is required but does not necessitated a satisfaction in the process of pleasing and displaying the guarantee of freedoms. As an individual the Amin Control of Freedoms was the best though with Awkward appearance. “You have freedom of Speech but not the freedom after speech”.
Anyway let’s focus on our Number one factor. Focusing on East Africa, the three counties Uganda, Kenya and South Sudan have in the last 10years invested heavily in Political intelligence and crowd control which seems to be the survival of these and other states across the African continent which has increased Lapses in Covert and Overt Intelligence.
In the ears of a stranger this sounds as a rhetoric but to someone who has followed the geopolitics of the region, at least in the last one decade this echoes well with the events but to the lay Thinker it looks like weaknesses of Leaders, but let’s look at 6 fundamental Factors that has led to the Increase of the curve of Political Intelligence over Covert and Overt Intelligence on our Graph.
1. Globalization, Imperialism, Neocolonialism, Trade Organization, Multinationals, Humanitarian Agencies, Governance Institutions, International Universities, Human Rights Foundations all have different definitions but with one similar agenda of having control and visibility across the globe their seems to be one fully fledged Battlefield left which is Africa as Asia and The Middle East are upping there priorities towards Development hence monopolizing Politics while Africa is liberalizing it.
The above players to be in business, they must heavily invest in Instability, regime change and Liberalization of politics whereby that can only be achieved by investing in Opposition Political Parties against Existing Legitment Govt. Let’s dig a little deeper in relation to the Topic.
Riek Machar of South Sudan who is said to have been Empowered with Military Warfare Equipment that are compared to that of the state, with no evidence of his wealth as an individual, how does he sustain and access such Hi-Tech Equipment if he is not deeply rooted and sucking in these mega organizations?
Odinga of Kenya, has in the last 15years years been actively 24/7 investigating in Political activities aimed at causing unrest in the interest of outing elected leaders with a reason of dissatisfaction of Election Results.
Besigye Kiiza in Uganda has been a victim of circumstances. In the 2016 elections, European Union Envoys, American Ambassador, the French and UK envoy actively Participated in Campaigning and Funding The Oppositions Candidates, not until at later stage towards elections, they had failed to choose between Besigye and Mbabazi since they still beloved that both combined, they could deny Museveni the required percentage of 50+1 threshold.
These are just basic examples that can be easy for one add up together.
How does the above contribute to the decline of the curve of political intelligence over that of Covert and Overt intelligence?
Instead of focusing covert intelligence that is aimed at keeping the country from internal and External dishonest intruders, both Man and Equipment Machinery is borrowed mitigate the challenge of political unrest. Opposition benefits in loss of lives and crippled economy because they find Lapses of criticism and weakening the incumbent to whom evaluation at the end of the term will render him either a failure or weak to execute as promised.
Kenya has lost over 300 lives to terrorism case in Point is The Garrisa University Shooting and the West gate Bombing and shooting which left hundreds dead, injured and businesses in disarray.
But also we need to remember that around that time, Odinga and his allies were tickling the state over crowd mobilization on streets which diverted all the efforts of security forces towards Barring crowds from flooding on streets something that is not health for business and others traveling.
Now, when Political unrest is in the country, there is insecurity in the country and the state for it to remain stable and continuing, it must divert all its efforts towards solving the existing events which renders other sectors vulnerable.
No one can sit and watch as they are weakened and they don’t revert. The question would be, should the opposition sit and ignore positioning itself into strategies aimed at strengthening it? I would also say No. Again to Preempt being biased, the Question would be, What should Opposition do if it’s not to unrest the existing Govt?
Those demarcations can be only be drawn by Dialogues, monopolizing Politics, Limiting Freedoms, coming up with a National Consensus on matters of Politics and Hopefully Decentralization of strong power units that could result into Federal System which is Regional block basis, Now that seems not to be a discussion that can not be tolerated due to circumstances well known to players involved.
This will introduce you to my next article that will be “How Politicking won’t usher us to stability and how Opposition is a Passive participant”.

What is this between Gashumba and nbs tv. .?
Frank Gashumba has misfired on this one. I don’t know why he is attacking Karisa over his ban from TV. I have always told people that Gashumba is another pastor abizayo and because these persons with disabilities are followed by disabled masses it becomes difficult for some of us to make people understand that their celebrities are needy beings who have just been hyped.
It was UCC that called Karisa and Karisa as a gentleman convened a meeting and suggested a way forward to manoeuvre around the system…he suggested they do two shows one weekly and another monthly. He also suggested Simon Muyanga Lutaya as the moderator…to direct the all-over show in the hands of Mivule and Gashumba… Gashumba failed to understand this or maybe he refused due to his personal issues and now he is on Facebook whining and cursing individuals like Simon Muyanga Lutaaya and Karisa…
And I think this is a fallacy in critical reasoning known as AD HOMINEM. (Attacking the person instead of the point). Why attack Muyanga and remind us that he lost an election… For God’s sake…he at least lost but some of us have never even contested.
Uganda is going nowhere mentally if the media houses keep on hyping such individuals at the expense of the intellectuals. When you look at our TVs they host people not because they know but because majority fools hearken to them. This is how we end up with COMMENTATORS at the loss of ANALYSTS. UCC said that Mivule and *Gashumba* are poisonous to the public but they did not unpack the poison in their show…let me tell you friends…the poison according to me who have been watching these shows is simple: while Gashumba assumes that he INSPIRES…the brother is struggling with the dictionary difference between INSPIRING and INCITING. UCC ought to have put it blunt that the brothers are literally not contributing to the country. I know a one Tamale mirundi who is more lethal than these two but he is still on air…let me tell you why: Tamale is not a commentator… He is an analyst… He has the facts and figures… He did political science and journalism… He is not a charlatan and neither is he an impostor like the two.
So friends: as for me I think Frank Gashumba should be attacking NBS and its administration. Karisa and the team are doing their work and they have to maintain their relations with the people who give them license. Mirundi is a smart monkey and smart monkeys do not shit where lions sleep. Unless if Frank wants to remain on Facebook and WhatsApp, he should stop attacking media. KISO KYA MBUZI. Dear Frank it is not Karisa and NBS who messed you up…it is UCC…so continue doing what you do best…curse the government. Please cut the ego and go back to NBS and take what you are given or start your own TV where you will be respected. Mbu karisa disrespected me, who should respect the other… The one with the program concept or the host who takes your views overseas. Do you know how many better program concepts are waiting.
When you are a media creation you must remember not to abuse and attack your creators. You might flop and disappear in no while.
I wish for could continue..but God bless you all and am sorry to those offended by the truth. Trust me surgery is a painful treatment.
I invoke Truth, Reason and Faith

Magezi Moses I think the dictator should close all media houses and feel comfortable. Man doesn’t need democracy…I equate it with what my teacher taught me about the clock aka in English that 7 IS 1
Kwikiriza Eunice Testmony Nbs is NRM wht do u expect money maker for God ad my family do u work in police to investigate namwe mutuleka mu
Adams Nabusagu So NBs investigated the matter and came to a conclusion that Frank is a conman or they acted on rumors. Its a total shame for our media.
Gad Ka Someone yes Said He was Conned by Frank Gashumba with promises to take them abroad on a trip with the president…
Mpawo atakiraba. Let’s keep ? crossed
Paul Collins Owor Hehe.. Why didn’t the complaints come before the earlier shows..?? Ohh Uganda
Buule Salim Saleh True but aside from defending a fellow… Ain’t u aware that the guy is a Ndyanabo! A kaloli.. Takuta.. Name it..
Mugisha Godfrey Kazungu we are in kamoli watching. I like it when Gashumba brings in Mengo as if mengo runs nbs.
Makanga Muwanga Allan It’s a dense press release and believe me it’s from a dense author.
Felix Davis Einyu I have never trusted NBS
McManuel Muyomba The entire country is rotten! NBS has degenerated very very badly!

military is detaining a One Erucu Norman
The NRA occupation al – Nakba. military is detaining a One Erucu Norman who was arrested on Saturday 25th march in Soroti at his shop opposite Soroti public gardens by the military headed by major Justine purportedly mbu mobilizing youth to head to Kampala for the #April revolution.
He is apparently detained at Soroti Flying school military barracks.
That is the Rwabwogo ideology.
Rwabwogo must ensure this young man is released. Your NRA occupation al – Nakba has killed these people and other Ugandans enough. ..March 27, 2017 at 2:44 pm #593
Hardly three weeks after the demise of his dad. Ham has seen his young life brought to an abrupt end by a security guard’s bullet in Hoima. Ham’s remains will be laid to rest in his ancestral home in Kityanga Cell, Buliisa Town Council. My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and friends. 🙁 🙁
