{UAH} BodaBoda Murder Case in the Monitor

CCTV cameras cover only about 40% of the city. Uber , Safeboda etc,.
already exist and those are genuine actors.

Bodaboda crime is to stay with us for quite sometime, even get worse!

Bodaboda murders as far as I have been looking at that particular
crime sector is nation wide with an average of 5 bodabodas riders
murdered and/or brutally injured in theft attempts on a daily basis
nationwide.

The bodaboda issue in Uganda is far more complicated than you can imagine.

Bodaboda crime is will not stop soon so long as invisible actors
remain at large.

Bodaboda riders have been used partly by the state as well as other
private actors in different covert and overt schemes (Kitata BodaBoda
2010 group)

President Museveni has on several occasions, instructed that Bodaboda
are electronically tagged - why has that not been done?

Jeniffer Musisi was stopped from regulating bodabodas in the city for
reason only NRM government can explain!

Crime in Uganda is a result of many things mainly:

1. Inconsistent Military and Political policies
2. Incompetent Socioeconomic policies
3. Organised crime
4. Poverty Structure (majority bodabodas are not above 13 years of education)
5. Some people in public service including police officers are
bodaboda owners they hire out for daily income. Two bodabodas can earn
you between UGX 20000- 30000 per day.
6. Failure by the state to regulate the Transport Sector.
7. State disrespect of the (Traffic) Laws - this has a cultural background!

I remember 20 years ago discussing bodaboda issue with Benedict
Mutyaba former MP. He blatantly told me if you want to fight poverty
allow bodabodas - he was talking of tukutuku the kind existing in
Vietnam. That is how Bodabodas became a transport system in Kampala!

{UAH} Former Bradford MP bids to unseat Labour deputy leader Tom Watson

George Galloway Plans To Come Back- Tom Watson, The Deputy Leader Of The Labour Party Is A Traitorous Lump of Horse Manure And Trojan Horse Inside The Party.

Former Bradford MP bids to unseat Labour deputy leader Tom Watson

Veteran left-wing politician George Galloway has announced he will bid to unseat Labour deputy leader Tom Watson at the next general election.

Mr Galloway, the former Bradford West MP, is planning to stand as a pro-Brexit, pro-Jeremy Corbyn independent candidate against Mr Watson in his West Bromwich East constituency.

The 64-year-old former Labour member said he is planning to hold a campaign launch event in the Black Country "within 10 days".

He claimed Mr Watson had tried to "wreck" Brexit and had been the "driving force" behind Labour's break with a 2017 party manifesto pledge to honour the referendum result to leave.

Responding, Mr Watson said Mr Galloway had "caused more reputational damage" to Labour than almost any other politician, and called the announcement of the electoral contest "nonsense".

The incumbent senior Labour party figure has held the seat since 2001, and had a majority at the 2017 election of 7,713.

A crowd-funding website to raise £25,000 towards Mr Galloway's campaign has raised more than £5,000 in 24 hours.

Speaking to PA Media, Mr Galloway said: "The whole thing has really taken off.

"This is the most popular thing I have ever done and I have been in politics 50 years - it has gone like wildfire."

He said: "Tom Watson has spent the last years trying to wreck any possibility of a pro-Brexit Labour government.

"More importantly, he's spent the last three years trying to wreck Brexit, even though 68% of his own constituents voted in favour of leaving."

He added: "I believe he has betrayed Brexit and betrayed the people who need a Labour government.

"He has been the driving force fighting the British electorate's decision in 2016 (to leave the EU) and in breaking the Labour manifesto pledge in 2017 to respect the referendum result."

Mr Galloway said he "used to be friendly" with Mr Watson, adding "I have the texts to prove it".

He linked his prospective candidacy announcement to a critical letter written by Mr Watson to Labour National Executive Committee (NEC) general secretary Jennie Formby, over the bitter anti-Semitism row which has engulfed the party.

Mr Watson has written to Ms Formby calling for the party to publish its submission to a watchdog investigating anti-Semitism claims and raising allegations that she had deleted emails relating to cases.

The NEC general secretary has denied Mr Watson's accusations.

The letter came in the wake of a damning BBC Panorama documentary about Labour's handling of anti-Semitism claims.

Labour has denied the allegations and written a complaint to the BBC.

But Mr Galloway said that what he termed as Mr Watson's "criticism of Jennie Formby" had been "the straw that broke the camel's back".

He added: "Attacking a woman with breast cancer in the middle of chemotherapy in completely misleading terms, went well beyond the pale."

Dundee-born Mr Galloway said he would not be moving to the Black Country constituency "unless and until" he was elected, to avoid disrupting his children's schooling.

"I have decades of involvement with the politics, society and culture in the Black Country and Birmingham area," he added.

Mr Watson said: "George Galloway has caused more reputational damage to Labour than almost any other politician.

"Now he says he will stand against me to achieve a Corbyn government. I am certain the good people of West Bromwich East will see this nonsense for what it is."

Mr Galloway was a Labour MP from 1987 until 2003, when he was expelled after the party found him guilty of bringing the party into disrepute.

At the time, he claimed to have been the victim of "a politically-motivated kangaroo court".

He was last an MP with political party Respect, becoming MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in 2005 and later representing the Bradford West constituency following a 2012 by-election before losing the seat three years later.

Mr Galloway was sacked last month from his TalkRadio show for making allegedly anti-Semitic comments online.

He celebrated the defeat of Tottenham to Liverpool in the Champions League final saying it meant there would be "No #Israel flags on the Cup".

{UAH} Boris Johnson is often compared to Trump, but he is even more dangerous – here’s why

Essential but scary reading.
'Johnson and Trump get away with it because people do not take them seriously enough until it is too late. But they press the same political and emotional buttons as the fascist leaders of the 1920s and 1930s.' 

Bobby

Boris Johnson is often compared to Trump, but he is even more dangerous – here's why

Voters in England have always been suckers for politicians who present themselves as bit of a wag – they don't take them seriously until it's too late

Is the rise of Boris Johnson to be the next prime minister the product of a soft coup? Does Donald Trump's racist demonisation of four non-white congress members prove him to be a "fascist" leader like Mussolini and Hitler? The two questions should be answered together because political developments in Britain tend to emulate those in the US, and vice versa, though the latter is less frequent. The Thatcher-Reagan years in the 1980s were an example of this cross-infection and it happened again in 2016, when the British electorate voted narrowly for Brexit and American voters (though not a majority of them) chose Trump as president. 

I used to be wary of alarmist talk of "soft coups" and analogies with the rise of demagogic populist nationalist leaders in Europe in the 1920s and 1930s. But the parallels and similarities between then and now are becoming more menacing by the day. Observers who forecast that Trump and Johnson would face too many political obstacles to gain power got something very wrong.

Democratic choice will have played only a limited role in the selection of Johnson as prime minister, if that goes through as predicted. He will have been chosen by 160,000 Conservative Party members – a highly unrepresentative group – of whom, as others have pointed out, more than half are aged over 55 and 38 per cent are over 66 years of age. Johnson will head a minority government elected under a different Conservative leader, Theresa May, and will depend on the votes of a Protestant party that is the product of the sectarian politics of Northern Ireland. 

Johnson's supporters say that one should not take too seriously his overheated and mendacious campaign rhetoric, implying that he will adopt a more moderate approach in office. I would not count on it: many in Washington said the same about Trump, claiming that once in the White House he would come to his senses. Commentators forgot that leaders who believe that they have won power by demonising foreigners and minorities, and accusing their opponents of treachery, see no reason to abandon a winning formula.

On the contrary, Trump has double-downed in his attacks on non-white American politicians as being non-Americans and haters of America who should leave the country. Pictures of Trump whipping up his followers into hate-filled chants at a rally in North Carolina by denouncing Ilhan Omar, one of the four Congresswomen he has targeted, shows that there are no limits to his exploitation of racial animosities.  

A few days after Trump spoke, Johnson was on a platform in Canning Town regaling his audience with a little story about excessive EU regulations strangling the business of a kipper smoker in the Isle of Man. This was the sort of invented, attention-grabbing tale by means of which Johnson launched his career as a journalist on The Daily Telegraph based in Brussels between 1989 and 1994. Then, as now, his stories portraying the EU as a bureaucratic monster sucking money out of Britain were exposed as false, but to little avail because they chimed in so neatly, as they were intended to do, with the prejudices of readers like the Conservative Party members who are choosing their new leader.

Trump's poisonous demagoguery in North Carolina may have rallied his true believers, but it also created a counter-reaction. By way of contrast, Johnson's kipper story was treated derisively but tolerantly, a bit of joke, showing once again that "Boris is a bit of a card", not to be taken too seriously. 

I wonder if Johnson's approach is not more dangerous than Trump's because it is more insidious.

Watch more

Voters in England have always been suckers for politicians who present themselves as bit of wag. Nigel Farage cultivates this sort of public persona with his pint of beer and jocular approach. Johnson and he are part of a tradition of political figures who specialise in Falstaffian bonhomie, persuading voters that – suffer though they may from some very human flaws – they are the salt of the earth. Successful examples of this tactic include George Brown, the notoriously drunken deputy leader of the Labour party, and the Liberal MP Cyril Smith whom, police confirmed after his death, had sexually and physically molested children as young as eight years old (there had been 144 complaints against him, but no prosecution).

Johnson and Trump get away with it because people do not take them seriously enough until it is too late. But they press the same political and emotional buttons as the fascist leaders of the 1920s and 1930s. Like them, they lead nationalist populist movements fuelled by opposition to globalisation, which Hitler blamed on the Jews and the Eurosceptics blame on Brussels. "We want to build a wall, a protective wall," said Goebbels.

It is worth looking at a copy of The New York Times dated 31 January 1933 – the day after Hitler became head of government – which is a classic example of a decent but complaisant person miscalculating the risks ahead. The writer points to the domestic opposition the new German leader would face "if he sought to translate the wild and whirling words of his campaign speeches into political action".

The article looks forward to a "tamed" Hitler of whom it says many Germans are hopefully speaking. Overall, it plays down grim expectations, saying: "Always we may look for some such transformation when a radical demagogue fights his way into responsible office." Judgement should be reserved until it is certain that the new man in power is "a flighty agitator" who would force the German people "to take a leap into the dark". 

Meghan McCain says that Trump's comments about Ilhan Omar is taking away her 'agency to criticise her'

Trump's rhetoric is more belligerent and frightening than anything said by Johnson, but the latter could turn out to be the more dangerous man. The reason is that, for all his bombast, Trump has a streak of realism and caution and has yet to go to war with anybody. It is easy for him to claim to have "made America great again" because the US was already the most powerful state in the world, even if that power has begun to ebb. 

Johnson, if he becomes prime minister, has a far more difficult path because Britain's power in the world has long been weaker than people in Britain – and Conservative Party members in particular – realise. Confronting the 27 states of the EU is going to make it that much weaker and the only alternative alliance is greater reliance on the US at a time when its policies are becoming more mercurial and egocentric. British collaboration with the US in confronting Iran, while at the same time trying not to be targeted as a US proxy, is an early sign of the dangerous path ahead.

Trump is certainly dividing America, but then America has always been divided over race and the legacy of slavery. The divisions of the Civil War 160 years ago are the core political divisions of America today. 

In Britain, the political polarisation stemming from Brexit is much fresher, getting deeper, more uncertain, and – at the end of the day – involves a very risky leap in the dark.
