{UAH} OFWONO OPONDO TIRED OF NRM !

Mulengera media 
OFWONO-OPONDO HINTS ON RESIGNING, ADMITS NRM IS IN TURMOIL 

Govt spokesman Ofwono Opondo (who also speaks for NRM party) says things aren't good in NRM anymore and fears the ruling party could crumble anytime soon unless urgent reforms are carried out to make the party more attractive to especially young people. Opondo, who during the Saturday Capital Gang hinted on his exit from public service, says NRM has been hijacked by fortune-hunters and political careerists, something that has pushed ideologically serious cadres to the periphery. Opondo says NRM has degenerated to a level where positive criticism and ambition has become criminalized and now top officials fear to say anything during Caucus, NEC, CEC & National conference meetings. This, he says, has made President Museveni to appear like a Catholic Priest whose Sunday Holy Mass Christians attend unquestioningly without ever being permitted to make any criticism regarding the priest's personal conduct. Opondo (who has spoken for M7 for 19 years) repeats what Andrew Mwenda said recently that NRM bosses now can only go to places like Makerere University and get an audience to address only if they are given money to give the young people to come and listen to them. Opondo says unlike opposition supporters (like those of Bobi's people power) who are hardworking and self-driven, bosses in NRM can't do any political mobilization unless Museveni first gives them money. Opondo advises party members to overcome fear and become outspoken about the problems affecting the masses. If they don't, they risk becoming irrelevant in the country. Many have since likened Opondo's latest critical views (published in today's Sunday Vision) to the 1999 critical document that preceded Dr. Kizza Besigye's acrimonious departure from the NRM...More details in this story....

{UAH} As Khashoggi crisis grows, Saudi king asserts authority, checks son's power: sources

Friends

 

It is a great stretch to think that this killing was blessed by the crown prince. If he had been involved into it, so many stupid things would not have happened. This is a very low based plan that simply failed. Look at the trail of data they left behind, look at the location they decided to pick him from when he had frequented the embassy a couple of times. Did it have to be the embassy? Lastly on the hate between Turkey and The Crown, let us be very careful with the information we are getting only from Ankara. And I have a very serious issue with the King's decisions, based on his health.

 

It is important as well to recognize that Jamal Khashoggi was close to Osama Bin Laden and they held several meetings in Sudan, a time when The Sudanese government actually raised a red flag on Bin Laden and demanded to hand Bin Laden  and Jamal Khashoggi to United States. The democrats that were in power at a time under Bill Clinton rejected the offer. It is very interesting that today both men are dead,  if what Obama told us and what the Turkish governments are telling us is true. Only Democrats know where Bin Laden was buried and only Turkey know where Khashoggi was buried.   Don't dare ask me why, for I might respond that it is because both are actually alive and in Louisiana playing street soccer with kids.

 

Now you know how fucked up is American politics.

Trump hardens tone on Saudi stance on murdered journalist

Yahoo Finance Video

DUBAI (Reuters) - So grave is the fallout from the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi that King Salman has felt compelled to intervene, five sources with links to the Saudi royal family said.

Last Thursday, Oct. 11, the king dispatched his most trusted aide, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, governor of Mecca, to Istanbul to try to defuse the crisis.

World leaders were demanding an explanation and concern was growing in parts of the royal court that the king's son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to whom he has delegated vast powers, was struggling to contain the fallout, the sources said.

During Prince Khaled's visit, Turkey and Saudi Arabia agreed to form a joint working group to investigate Khashoggi's disappearance. The king subsequently ordered the Saudi public prosecutor to open an inquiry based on its findings.

"The selection of Khaled, a senior royal with high status, is telling as he is the king's personal adviser, his right hand man and has had very strong ties and a friendship with (Turkish President) Erdogan," said a Saudi source with links to government circles.

Since the meeting between Prince Khaled and Erdogan, King Salman has been "asserting himself" in managing the affair, according to a different source, a Saudi businessman who lives abroad but is close to royal circles.

Saudi officials did not immediately respond to Reuters questions about the king's involvement in helping to supervise the crisis. A spokesman for Prince Khaled referred Reuters to government representatives in Riyadh.

Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and leading critic of Prince Mohammed, vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. Turkish officials say they believe the Saudi journalist was murdered there and his body removed, allegations which Saudi Arabia has strongly denied.

Initially the king, who has handed the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to his son, commonly known as MbS, was unaware of the extent of the crisis, according to two of the sources with knowledge of the Saudi royal court. That was partly because MbS aides had been directing the king to glowing news about the country on Saudi TV channels, the sources said.

That changed as the crisis grew.

"Even if MbS wanted to keep this away from the king he couldn't because the story about Khashoggi's disappearance was on all the Arab and Saudi TV channels watched by the king," one of the five sources said.

"The king started asking aides and MbS about it. MbS had to tell him and asked him to intervene when Khashoggi's case became a global crisis," this source said.

Since he acceded to the throne in January 2015, the king has given MbS, his favorite son, increasing authority to run Saudi Arabia. But the king's latest intervention reflects growing disquiet among some members of the royal court about MbS's fitness to govern, the five sources said.

MbS, 33, has implemented a series of high-profile social and economic reforms since his father's accession, including ending a ban on women driving and opening cinemas in the conservative kingdom.

But he has also marginalized senior members of the royal family and consolidated control over Saudi's security and intelligence agencies.

His reforms have been accompanied by a crackdown on dissent, a purge of top royals and businessmen on corruption charges, and a costly war in Yemen.

Khashoggi's disappearance has further tarnished the crown prince's reputation, deepening questions among Western allies and some Saudis about his leadership.

"Even if he is his favorite son, the king needs to have a comprehensive view for his survival and the survival of the royal family," said a fourth Saudi source with links to the royal court.

"In the end it will snowball on all of them."

Saudi officials did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment.

MISCALCULATION

Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied any role in Khashoggi's disappearance. But the sources familiar with the royal court said the reaction from the United States, an ally for decades, had contributed to the king's intervention.

"When the situation got out of control and there was an uproar in the United States, MbS informed his father that there was a problem and that they have to face it," another source with knowledge of the royal court said.

The crown prince and his aides had initially thought the crisis would pass but they "miscalculated its repercussions", this source said.

Turkish officials have made clear they believe Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate, and two Turkish sources have told Reuters police have audio recordings to back up that assertion.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican close to President Donald Trump, on Tuesday accused MbS of ordering Khashoggi's murder and called him a "wrecking ball" who is jeopardizing relations with the United States. He did not say what evidence he was basing the allegation on.

Trump said on Thursday he presumed Khashoggi was dead but that he still wanted to get to the bottom of what exactly happened. Asked what would be the consequences for Saudi Arabia, Trump said: "Well, it'll have to be very severe. I mean, it's bad, bad stuff. But we'll see what happens."

Trump has previously said "rogue killers" may have been responsible and has ruled out cancelling arms deals worth tens of billions of dollars. On Tuesday, Trump said he had spoken with MbS and that the crown prince told him he did not know what had happened in the consulate where Khashoggi went missing.

The case poses a dilemma for the United States, as well as Britain and other Western nations. Saudi Arabia is the world's top oil exporter, spends lavishly on Western arms and is an ally in efforts to contain the influence of Iran.

But in a sign of the damage, a succession of international banking and business chiefs, including IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, JP Morgan Chief Executive Jamie Dimon and Ford Chairman Bill Ford, have pulled out of a high-profile investment conference in Saudi Arabia this month.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday also abandoned plans to attend, as did Britain's trade minister and the French and Dutch finance ministers, putting the event in question.

Saudi officials have said they plan to move forward with the conference, scheduled for Oct. 23-25, despite the wave of cancellations.

Neither JP Morgan nor Ford would elaborate on the reasons for the decision not to attend and did not comment on whether concerns about the disappearance of Khashoggi were a factor.

Lagarde had previously said she was "horrified" by media reports about Khashoggi's disappearance. An IMF spokesperson did not give a reason for her deferring her trip to the Middle East.

TAKING CONTROL

Before the king's intervention, Saudi authorities had been striking a defiant tone, threatening on Sunday to retaliate with greater action against the U.S. and others if sanctions are imposed over Khashoggi's disappearance. A Saudi-owned media outlet warned the result would be disruption in Saudi oil production and a sharp rise in world oil prices.

"Reaction and threats to the possible sanctions of the last 24 hours were still (coming) from the crown prince," the businessman close to royal circles said on Monday. "The king is now holding the file personally ... and the tone is very different."

The king has spoken directly with Erdogan and Trump in recent days. Both the king and his son met U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo when he visited Riyadh on Tuesday.

King Salman, 82, spent decades as part of the inner circle of the Al Saud dynasty, which long ruled by consensus. In four decades as governor of Riyadh, he earned a reputation as a royal enforcer who punished princes who were out of line.

Whether he is willing or able to resume that role in this crisis remains unclear, palace insiders say. One source with links to the royal court said the king was "captivated" by MbS and ultimately would protect him.

Still, there is precedent for the king's intervention.

He stepped in this year to shelve the planned listing of national oil company Saudi Aramco, the brainchild of MbS and a cornerstone of his economic reforms, three sources with ties to government insiders told Reuters in August. Saudi officials have said the government remains committed to the plans.

And when MbS gave the impression last year that Riyadh endorsed the Trump administration's still nebulous Middle East peace plan, including U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the king made a public correction, reaffirming Riyadh's commitment to the Arab and Muslim identity of the city.

Despite these rare instances of pushback, several of the sources close to the royal family said that King Salman had grown increasingly detached from decisions taken by MbS.

"He has been living in an artificially-created bubble," said one of the sources. Lately, though, the king's advisers have grown frustrated and begun warning him of the risks of leaving the crown prince's power unchecked.

"The people around him are starting to tell him to wake up to what's happening," the source said.

{UAH} Now Tell Me, Is It Idi Amin Abducting & Killing His Political Opponents Last Week

Fellow Ugandans,

You all saw this video of a disturbing abduction by state agents in broad daylight last week. I want to ask all those who for the last 40 years have been chest-thumping about "fighting dictatorship" that What is this? And where are you now?
Oh I forgot. You are still in your so-called "Struggle". Trying to liberate Namboole stadium with 20,000 people power bums swerving round and round all night in the Kyarenga concert mbu 🎼fighting for freeedoooom🎵.
Whoever has cancelled that bullshit concert has unknowingly saved Ugandans from wasting their resolve to cause real political change for themselves. The cancellation is therefore probably a blessing in disguise for Uganda.
But on a more serious note, Am I the only one seeing the US military's M4 Assault rifles being used in every brutality and murder in Uganda today, or are our media people and so-called security analysts that dumb and actually that incompetent that they can't adequately analyze what is right in front of their eyes in broad daylight? What is this being held by the killer on the left in a grey khaki trouser nearest to the camera? In fact in the full video (link below), the last gentlemen to board the public taxi and shut the door (tight blue T-shirt) is also brandishing the exact same kind of weapon, and nobody is asking SFC and the Americans what their weapons are still doing here terrorizing Ugandans. Is that part of their military cooperation? While there have been claims that the goons were police officers or regular soldiers, the reality is that there is only one unit in Uganda today that was exclusively given this weapon in a public ceremony of US military cooperation. The reckless and clearly ill-disciplined so-called "Special Forces Command". Yoweri Museveni's bodyguards. And here they are using those very weapons to terrorize Ugandans and his political opponents instead of using them to fight Al-Shabaab terrorists as was their original purpose right?
Obviously this is a deliberate abuse of the trust not only of the Ugandan people, but also the American people plus their government who had offered these weapons free-of-charge as assistance for a good cause: Fighting terrorism. Meaning that the Americans never made any sale or dollar from this cooperation. In fact what a waste for their people who are now being made part of this criminality instead. Aren't they here in the hands of possibly ideologically criminal goons who are harassing and killing Ugandan citizens and their politicians with impunity lately in the sole goal of doing anything they can to help their so-called commander cling to power by hook or crook? I remember even warning people about who might be the serial killers raping and killing the over 30 women found dead during the 2017 Entebbe Women murders that took place in a town where the SFC is based.
And how come in the past when President Idi Amin spoke about his enemies being the ones abducting his government officials, his statements have been deliberately left out from any existing historic record available today. But for the last 40 years, the real most corrupt leaders, killers and liars that Uganda has ever had, namely the Obote's, the Okello's, and the very "Commander in Chief" of the killer squad henchmen seen here, have all been frantically telling the world all sorts of lies including mbu "It is Idi Amin who abducted Ben Kiwanuka", and everyone immediately nods their head in approval like the blue headed konkome lizard?
Usually when the known biggest liars (who also happen to be the biggest criminals and the most corrupt thieves ever) start repeatedly telling you bad things about one particular person who is known to have never stolen even a single coin from anyone, what is usually going on?
Now is it Idi Amin abducting this political opponent in broad daylight in the middle of the city or is it "General" Museveni?
