Full List of MPs Elected in the 2011 Elections


Since our journalist colleagues here appear too busy, I took advantage of my day off to compile the full list of newly elected MPs. About for names are still missing. It is not a very scientific one because it does not include who beat who, which big name lost and by what margin etc. I hope it helps.

Museveni’s ”Cannibalism” Statement Has Reminded Ugandans of Iddil Amin


Coutesy of John Nsubuga

Dear Ugandans,
I still cannot believe it that president Museveni said:”I will eat Besigye like Cake or Samosa” during NRM’s victory celebrations at Kololo. Such a statement alluded to President Museveni is very disturbing to many of us who have struggled to defend Ugandans who many foreigners think are cannibals because of former president Idi Amin’s utterances. As you might recall, former president Idi Amin used to swear that he would “eat” anybody who threatened his government, ”alive.”

So when Ugandans began disappearing with no trace of them being seen, rumours of skulls and human flesh began circulating that such items where delicacies of our then president. Even his last born son, Moses, was rumoured to have been eaten. And when the film,” The Last King of Scotland” was screened, Amin was shown inviting his visitors to a meal where he said something like, ” eat this meat, this one is not human flesh, just enjoy…” making the fans believe that indeed the man/Ugandans eat human flesh.

yyyyI have told members that just that statement, ” eat this, this one is not human flesh,” made me lose my beautiful lover who must have narrated to her parents, friends and other people how she must have survived being eaten. Initially, Victoria was so fond of me and whenever we had any discussions on African International Relations in the 20th Century or parties or other events, we always went together, she was proud of me and I had planned to marry her, but after watching that Amin movie, Victoria got so scared about Ugandans and kept asking me, “Simon, is it true, do you people eat human flesh?” I regretted taking her to that movie, you could see how scared she was. And at another separate occasion, one carpet cleaner I had hired to clean my stuff told me of how Ugandans were a terrible group of people, and when I asked him to explain, first he asked me where I was from so when I told him that I was from South Africa, he felt comfortable to talk about Uganda, he said that Ugandans eat people and the worst “eater” was Idi Amin whose meals consisted of human brains for breakfast, human hearts for lunch and for water he drank human blood. The guy continued to talk like he was actually the man who prepared Amin’s meals. I just told him that my parents escaped from Uganda where they worked as expertrates, so the man said, ” you see!”

Now President Museveni has said he will eat Besigye like he eats cakes and samosas. Most people enjoy cakes because of their taste, so if President Museveni compares Besigye’s ( human) flesh to cakes, doesn’t that infer that there has been previous experience of savouring human flesh? While Amin stories might have taken months or years to reach foreigners because of poor communication technology then, it is worrying now because with these innovations in communication technology, the news of another Ugandan president eating human flesh must have reached parts of the world, and again Ugandans, especially those in the Diaspora, will pay the price as they will be feared. For those who are nurses, mid-wives, baby-sitters, those who care for the elderly, those who guard at night and even lawyers or teachers, it will be hard time getting or keeping their jobs as the clientile will be scared.

But was president Museveni serious when he made that statement? President Museveni should substantiate his statement.I said that the matter is disturbing indeed considering that we have lost our children when they were burnt in dormitories in various schools in Uganda during this regime by unknown people, might such statements offer some clues where investigations should be directed? Of those burnt, how much of the body parts were recovered, were there missing parts, and did relatives of the burnt people have chance to check how their people were burnt? What about those burnt in Mukura Railway station in Kumi, Teso, were all parts recovered? It is worrying if people start bragging openly how they can eat other people.

I do not know what defence mechanism to use to dissuade human eaters from targeting us. Perhaps farting in public everywhere and all the time you meet security guys, no bathing or washing clothes for months/years may make them let “bad meat”pass. Like in Amin’s time, one could keep ones’ car without risking it being taken away or owner harassed by “denting” the new car to make it look old, so the SRB guys would not bother disturbing a poor man with a DMC vehicle as you enjoyed your car!

Oh Uganda the land of mysteries where presidents eat their citizens!

Uganda Police issues a statement that Stops the Opposition from Peacefully Demonstrating


Cartoon of the week - Life presidency 2069(Courtesy of Alan Barigye)


The Uganda Police Force has received reliable information that sections of the opposition leadership intend to use the pretext of peaceful demonstrations, allegedly in protest of the outcome of the recent Presidential and Parliamentary elections, to cause widespread and sustained violence and destruction, and in process, destabilize the peace and security in the country.

While the Constitution grants the right to demonstrate peacefully and unarmed, this right comes with conditions and responsibilities. The overriding condition is that, any person exercising this right must do so without prejudicing the rights of others or public interest. Public interest includes national security.

Under Article 212 of the Constitution, it is the constitutional responsibility of the Police to safeguard these rights, by preserving the peace, maintaining law and order, and detecting and preventing crime.
This is particularly so in situations where the exercise of these rights is likely to result in conflict of interests of parties involved or affected, or put innocent lives, and property, in imminent danger.
It is for this reason that Section 32(1) of the Police Act empowers the Police to regulate the conduct of public meetings and processions.

In executing its regulatory function in regard to public meetings and processions, the Police require organizers of public meetings and processions to notify the Police, in advance of any intended public meeting or procession.
The purpose of the notice is to enable the Police plan for the security of the function, ensure that the rights of other persons not involved are protected, and protect national security.

In the notice, the organizers are required to provide details of the venue, time and number of persons expected, in case of public meetings; and the intended route, time and number of persons expected, in case of processions.
This, in fact, is the standard practice the world over, in other established democracies, as well as sister Commonwealth countries.

In the present case, the leadership of the opposition and organizers of the intended demonstrations, have neither notified the Police, or provided the requisite details as required by procedure, to enable the Police provide security, and ensure that the demonstration is peaceful.

Any planned demonstration or procession, in this instance, is therefore, unlawful, and shall not be allowed to take place.
I, consequently, caution any person organizing, or intending to hold or participate in such unlawful demonstration, which has potential to degenerate into a riotous situation, that such action constitutes a criminal offence, and the Police shall take firm and resolute action against such persons.

I would like to advice members of the public to guard against misleading statements, leaflets, as well as media and other means, whose purpose is to use the public to pursue their selfish and evil agendas.
The Police shall continue to cooperate with the public, and other security agencies, to maintain law and order, prevent crime, and ensure the safety and security of the country.
Thank you.

Semei Nyanzi Was One of The Unsung Heroes of Uganda


Dear Ugandans at heart,

Semei Nyanzi died about five or so years ago in Brighton (UK). He was one of the unsung heroes of Uganda. Advise the NRM Award Nomination committee not to forget him next time around.Please forward this to Gen.Elly Tumwine’s committee which is chaired by NRM’s( yellow man), Prof.Mondo Kagonyera who has been in government before l was born, and has not retired or is not retired yet.

Nyanzi was a Lecturer in Economics at Makerere University before independence with the likes of President Mwai Kibaki. When J Simpson resigned as Chair of Uganda Development Corporation, Obote took unexpectedly bold step and appointed an African Nyanzi in his place. There was not much murmuring because most Ugandans took him by his name not knowing he was an Acholi. He was named after Semei Nyanzi, a Muganda CMS missionary who worked in northern Uganda.

Nyanzi as Chair of Uganda Development Corporation, presided over one of the best managed development corporations, a model that was replicated in other Commonwealth countries. By the time Amin, and the likes of Robert Rutega and Bob Astles began to shamefully dismantle the giant, he was presiding over several companies from mining, hotels, manufucturing, finance, property and tourism. In a book published in the 70’s by All African Council of Churches “Who Controls Industry in East Africa” Semei Nyanzi featured as one of the most influential in the industrial development of East Africa as he was Chair of 52 UDC group of companies.

Amin appointed him Minister of Small Scale Industry in 1975 and replaced him at the UDC with Lt Col Ndhendakaire. He fled Uganda in 1975 on relaese from Luzira prison.

He resurfaced as the second Chair of the Moshi conference and was appointed as one of the key members of the Uganda National Liberation Front of Yusuf Lule. He fitted very well in Lule’s circles (“men of circumstances” as they were called)- anti Obote, highly educated, married into Mmengo establishment family etc. (he married the Dentist sister of Michael Kawalya Kagwa). I was told by a person close to him that he cried on hearing on BBC of Prof Yusuf Lule’s overthrow while on emissary to London.

Opposition Parties Call For Fresh,Free And Fair Elections.They want the just Concluded Elections Results Nullified


1. Introduction

We, 2011 Presidential Candidates , Dr Kizza-Besigye (IPC/FDC), Mr Olara Otunnu (UPC), Mr Samuel Lubega (Independent) and Mr Norbert Mao (DP), have met and agreed to work together to establish a common non-partisan platform of political parties and civil society organizations with the objective of advancing democracy. We have jointly reviewed the entire electoral process, its outcome of 18 February 2011, as well as the failed LC5 elections of yesterday, 23 February 2011. We have also considered the prevailing deep political crisis in the country.

As has been repeatedly pointed out by the opposition political parties and the civil society, the entire process and its outcome have not been free and fair. The election was characterized by widespread bribery by NRM using public funds, intimidation and threats of violence using the security forces, pre-ticking of ballots and ballot stuffing, multiple voting, ghost polling stations, disenfranchisement of voters, arrests and obstruction of opposition polling agents and all manner of cheating. The electoral exercise has been a sham. We categorically reject the results of this scandalous process and will not recognize any government formed out of these elections.

2. Context

For the past two decades, the people of Uganda, through their opposition political parties and civil society have been in a protracted struggle for peace and genuine multiparty democracy. At every turn, the NRM and Mr Museveni have been obstacles to the people’s aspirations. Even when he was prevailed upon by internal and external forces to embrace multiparty politics, Mr Museveni did so reluctantly and continues to undermine its genuine operation.

The people of Uganda led by the opposition parties have actively participated in four general elections (1996, 2001, 2006, and 2011), in which the NRM and Mr Museveni, subverted the will of the people through cheating and grossly violating their human rights.

Opposition parties have challenged the results in courts of law two times and successfully proved that the elections were neither free nor fair. However, on both occasions, the courts declined to cancel the fraudulent election results. In an effort to improve the management of the 2011 elections, opposition parties and civil society filed a number of court cases. These cases have either been dismissed on questionable grounds or are still not yet heard and concluded.

In addition to these efforts, the opposition political parties and civil society have also sought solutions through constitutional and legal reforms. The NRM and Mr Museveni have failed these efforts through reckless misuse of their parliamentary majority.

It is now very clear that Ugandans cannot advance democracy through elections, the courts or parliament under Mr. Museveni and the NRM leadership. Other constitutional options have to be used to pursue democracy.

Ugandans will recall that in 1980, Mr Museveni alleged that the general elections had been rigged. Without seeking a solution from courts of law or parliament, he launched a war that cost an estimated 300 000 Ugandan lives and the destruction of an entire region of the country (Buganda). It is now evident that this high price that Mr Museveni made Ugandans to pay was not for genuine democracy but for his personal power.

In contrast to Mr Museveni who chose a violent option as his first solution, we have explored several constitutional options with no success. Nevertheless, we are determined to use constitutional means to advance democracy. The only option left, that is allowed by the constitution and which is peaceful to challenge the results of this sham election, is for the people to assert their sovereign power under Article 1 of the Constitution. Under Article 3, the people of Uganda have the right and duty to defend the constitution and ensure that they are led by only those who have been elected through free and fair elections.

3. Call to Action.

Therefore, the time is now for the people of Uganda to rise and peacefully protest against the outcome of the 2011 elections and;

i) Demand that no further fraudulent local government elections be conducted by the existing partisan Electoral Commission.

ii) Reject any government that may be formed out of these sham elections,

iii) Demand that fresh, free and fair general elections be organized under the following minimal conditions:

a) An independent, competent and representative Electoral Commission, composed through criteria agreed to by all stakeholders be established.

b) A clean voters register be compiled

c) A uniform method of voter identification be established

d) The UPDF, the ISO, ESO and all paramilitary groups be withdrawn from providing security during elections. This function should be left to the police

e) Illicit and massive deployment of money, most of it public funds; to bribe voters, polling agents and election officials be stopped.

f) All candidates be availed equal access to pubic media.

g) Voter education be conducted.

iv) Sign the Blue Book petition and other petitions and memoranda calling for free and fair

We call upon all our leaders in every district to organize and address peaceful public rallies and matches to call for fresh elections under the terms above. We encourage all other peaceful and lawful actions by Ugandans everywhere, including the diaspora, to call for fresh elections.

DATED at Kampala, this 24th Day of February 2011.

Jessica Nakawombe,a Resident in USA ,voted as the Best Original Writer & Best peacemaker by Ugandans


Rev. Jessica Nakawombe

Dear members,
As promised last year, below are the results of the Ugandans At Heart (UAH) Awards 2009/2010. Sorry for the delay as we had hoped that more members would participate in these polls to sort out the tier between Mr.Ahmed Katerega and Mr.Wafula Ogutu for ‘Best Uganda History Writer’. We should congratulate all those who have won these awards and we hope they inspire others on the forum to achieve the same in future.

The winners were voted by fellow members of UAH through our online polls at : http://ssubi.wordpress.com/polls/

Best Original Writer:
A member who normally writes in his or her own style- without necessarily copying anybody’s work.
Winner is: Jessica Nakawombe

Best peacemaker:
A member who always try to calm down other members who derail from the intended debate and start virtually to ‘shoot’ each other. Obviously, this is the role of the Head Moderator or Moderators but we want members to look at some one else other than the Moderator.
Winner is: Jessica Nakawombe

Best Uganda History Writer:
A member that you feel has taught you a lot about the history of Uganda ever since you joined the forum
Like i said,there was a tier between Ahmed Katerega and Wafula Ogutu. So we thank them both. Unfortunately, we are not gonna go for rerun.

Reveland Jessica Nakawombe is a Uganda resident in in Los Angeles, California. She had her primary education at Kololo High School before joining Kololo Seconday School. She finished her undergraduate studies at Uganda christian University in Mukono in 1994 before joining Episcopal Divinity School in USA. She is a humble lady and prides herself in loving God and her original country.She has been a member of Ugandans At Heart(UAH) for over 4 years now.

As a head moderator, I would like to thank all members of UAH that participated in these polls. We hope our work is recognised by other people in other places outside the forum since we are not paid by anybody to do this. In effect, we hope we shall be on the list of people that receive awards in future in various mediums for what we do here.

I would also like UAH members to try bring topics that will educate us about different issues . These topics dont necessarily have to be about politics. We should try to encourage some form of bonding and linking among members if we are to turn UAH into a community in future. I’m sure some of you already feel connected to certain members, because you feel you seem to agree or disagree on a lot of things. Let us all try to build a sprit of brotherhood amongst us and see if this will lead to something that may turn out to be good for all of us.

Ugandans Should Not Lose Hope. Change Will Happen in Uganda when least expected



Dear Ugandans,

To be alive even against many odds is great luck, and to have gone to school is even better and to have got chance to get international exposure is best. Having got such chance, I live a happy life because temporary success of some individuals is less comparable to better life some people enjoyed right from birth yet they had to experience the worst of the worst. When I was new abroad, the first job that I got like most other immigrants was in factories where I did manual jobs. I was again lucky in that as an orphan, those were the kind of jobs I did at my relatives but what was interesting was that some of my colleagues from different countries had been royals, managers, generals to mention but a few.

One former Iraqi soldier who worked with me in car-parts quality assuarance depart narrated how they were sturbborn under Saddam Hussien and refused to heed the UN order for them to withdraw from Kuwait and that they thought they were powerful when there was no sign of intervention, they praised Saddam like he was the best of all human beings. My friend stopped inspecting the car-engine parts he was checking and as his supervisor, I asked him to talk but as he works, he just broke down crying and said, ” sir, it is bad to be stupid, we acted stupidly thinking that we were so powerful and that nobody could defeat us, but when the deadline that had been given passed, we saw gun-power you can never imagine of. More than ten thousand Iraqi soldiers got bombed, hit, sprayed with gas, and there was hell let loose on us. I cannot even believe that I am alive today!” Of course I knew all about the international community’s ultimatum to Saddam Hussein to withdraw from Kuwait, but his false pride and thought that as a friend of US, he would receive preferential treatment caused him problems which Bush Jr completed; there is a limit, especially if it causes embarassment to the “great uncle”

As a scholar of IR, I have read about such repressive regimes in the world but what is comforting is that at the end, the ordinary people
triumph.

Back to Uganda. I was a young and vibrant young man during Iddi Amin’s time and I used to get problems with the ‘SRB”guys over petty issues such as challenging then when they asked us to keep quiet, or even they ordered me to “disappear” and I would ask, “why,” and so forth but come 1979, those very rogue and sturbborn boys came to me for assistance and one of them came to me at night to tell me of their last plan for Soroti, that they were going to move from house to house to slaughter any non-moslem in Soroti Town, so he advised me to run away and advised me not to be sturbborn but take heed of his advice. I did follow and by the next morning I was over 25 miles away from Soroti where news reached me that there was slaughter of men in Soroti.The same guy thought that a change in his names in his A’level certificate to “Mustapha D. Okurut” moreover “Okurut” inserted by hand would save him,but wapi! But Ugandans got over that also, there are so many stories about false pride and success.

Ugandans should not lose hope because of these rigged elections, there is green light ahead and many of you are going to laugh when some of those “tough” boys are cowering under no enemy of theirs, only guilt will be hammering them, we have seen many of them.

IPC Rejects 2011 Elections.Uganda Election Marred by violence, electoral malpractices



The election was characterised by:

a) An obscene and open use of money to corrupt the whole process. The unprecedented bribery no doubt subverted the will of people. To clarify the extent, 76 out of 80 districts we have sampled reported this kind of bribery.

b) Multiple voting and ballot stuffing resulting from use of bloated voters register. In the 80 districts we sampled more than half reported this malpractice.

c) Voters turned away without voting. This was reported in 61 out of 80 districts.

d) Biased presiding officers and polling assistants as a result of appointment of movement cadres into the electoral commission system.

e) 66 districts out of 80 reported that a large number of their polling agents were denied declaration of results forms.

f) Wide spread deployment of armoured vehicles and troops in the whole country who were even patrolling polling areas and causing fear in the population.

g) Arrests, detention and removal of our polling agents from polling station. This was reported in 34 of the 80 districts sampled so far.

h) Pre-ticked ballots in favour of Museveni were caught outside polling stations in 28 out of 80 districts sampled.

i) In 19 out of 80 districts we received reports of ghost polling stations.

j) In 44 districts out of 80 materials arrived late and reduced the level of participation of voters.

An election conducted under such environment cannot reflect the will of the people. Clearly the institutions of the state charged with the management of the election have failed the country.

We therefore:

1. Categorically reject the out come of the elections.

2. Reject the leadership of Mr. Yoweri Museveni and any person or persons he may purport to appoint.

3. Have resolved to consult other political actors, religious leaders, civil society and the public to determine how to bring an end to the illegitimate government that may be installed there by bringing the country back to the path of constitutional rule. We will keep the country informed of the next steps.

4. We congratulate all the voters who turned out in large numbers in many areas despite the visible presence of instruments of intimidation. We thank all our mobilizers and campaigners who made the campaigns of the IPC flag bearers highly visible, exciting and focused on the issues that matter most to the people of Uganda.
We specially thank the young men and women who worked as our polling agents in particularly hard circumstances. The young men and women who were sent to districts to retrieve results some of whom were arrested. To you our foot soldiers, you are the future of our country. We are proud of you

The worst electoral fraud in Uganda’s history



The presidential and parliamentary exercise that ended yesterday fell far short of expectations. It is unprecedented in Uganda’s elections since 1961. This was not an election in the true meaning of the word. Elections follow norms or standards with minor unintended irregularities here and there which can be excused. The whole electoral cycle was a fraud. The electoral commission chairman’s remarks that irregularities occur in young democracies should not be accepted. To facilitate debate, here are some illustrations of what went wrong throughout the electoral cycle.

1. The Electoral Commission was partial. Museveni refused to appoint an independent commission implying he planned to rig the election.

2. Inflated voter register was compiled by a partial electoral commission. In Museveni’s home area of Ntungamo district where his wife contested a parliamentary seat, there were more than 2 million registered voters. This is outrageous! Earlier warnings that the register in Ntungamo had been inflated were denied. In Kawempe a small residential area in Kampala City another outrageous voter figure of more than 1 million was recorded.

3. On elections day, many voters were not on voter register, others were in different polling stations, others had names but no photographs, yet others had photographs but no names against them and could not vote. These irregularities appear to have affected voters in the opposition camp. Many ended up not voting. So it could not have been an accident.

4. There was an absence of fairness in the sense of a level playing field. There was gerrymandering (new boundaries of districts to favor NRM).

5. Financial resources at the disposal of presidential candidates displayed such a wide gap that disproportionately favored the incumbent to the extent that it made presidential elections a joke. The additional 700 billion shillings at the disposal of Museveni in the final weeks of campaigning made all the difference. It is reported that money was dished out even when voting was in progress. This is against electoral regulations. Museveni had superior resources in money, personnel and the advantage of incumbency that fraudulently tilted the election in his favor. Coincidentally Uganda government has gone broke as reported by the Minister of Finance.

6. Use of media services was biased against some candidates.

7. Lack of security restricted campaigning by some presidential candidates.

8. Intimidation of opposition candidates and supporters was common.

9. Massive presence of military rather than police officers was intimidating and could have affected the results by discouraging opposition voters from voting in case trouble erupts while they are there.

10. Many ballot boxes were not sealed. Others arrived late with adverse implications.

11. Some agents from opposition parties had difficulties monitoring voting because supposedly they presented wrong accreditation letters.

12. Indelible ink was not used in many polling stations, implying voting more than once.

13. Voters were assaulted, arrested and detained by security officers as in Ntungamo district.

14. In some cases voter secrecy was violated.

15. International observers should have covered the entire electoral cycle. Most of them came to cover the polling day virtually leaving out what happened before February 18, 2011.

16. They are expected to be neutral and write an honest report whether or not the exercise was free and fair. They should avoid subjective conclusions based on vague formulations such as “given the prevailing circumstances”. This has been the general formulation since the 1980 elections. This time international and domestic observers should report whether or not the election cycle was free and fair. Nothing in between. Failure to do that will jeopardize their credibility.

17. The chairman of the electoral commission has a solemn duty to be faithful to the people of Uganda and announce real results. That way he will keep his dignity intact and set a precedent for his successors.

18. It has been suggested that the cheated presidential candidates must not go to the Supreme Court again because many Ugandans think they know how it will judge the case. Instead, peaceful methods including demonstrations throughout the country should be used to denounce the results and block formation of a new government. Uganda security forces should not intervene in peaceful demonstrations. The behavior of forces in Tunisia and Egypt should serve as a guide.

19. Museveni thinks Ugandans are cowards and can’t sustain a long demonstration. He believes that once a few bones have been broken the rest will run for cover and never return.

20. Are we really cowards?
