{UAH} We told you Muslims wouldn't tolerate: UMSC warns on red caps


During a press briefi ng on Friday at Old Kampala, the UMSC spokesperson, Haji Nsereko Mutumba, said wearing Muslim caps damages the image of the Islamic religion.
"We have no problem with anyone showing their dissatisfaction with the political situation, but our concern is using our attire during the demonstrations, especially by non- Muslims who may end up wearing it to bars and pork joints," Mutumba said.
Of late, Members of Parliament opposed to the lifting of the presidential age limit and their supporters, have resorted to wearing red caps and ribbons.
Mutumba noted that they have received numerous petitions from the Muslim fraternity over the matter from various parts of the world.
"Actually, we are not coming out because we are against their cause, but a number of Muslims have threatened to attack them. Therefore, we call on all those who wear red caps, especially non-Muslims, to stop wearing them before Muslims launch attacks on them," he said.
Mutumba also attacked Muslim MPs whom he said, had failed to put on the caps when the operationalisation of the Kadhi courts was blocked by Parliament.
However, he lauded Democratic Party vice-president Fred Mukasa Mbidde and FDC strongman Col. Kizza Besigye for desisting from wearing Muslim caps during their demonstrations.
According to Mutumba, non- Muslims should only put on Muslim caps during Muslim functions, to match the occasion.
Mutumba also expressed concern over the non-inclusion of Muslim clerics in the recently organised parliamentary prayers, which he said is a sign of segregation against Muslims.
"We have Muslim MPs who profess the Islamic religion, but, if their leaders are not included, what does that mean?" he asked.
Efforts to get a comment from the Parliament's director of communications and public affairs Chris Obore, over the matter were futile.
Mutumba also warned Kampala Capital City Authority councillor Muhammad Ssegirinya and his team against organising what he called bogus prayers.
A group of Muslims that include Ssegirinya have been reported in the media as having conducted duwa (prayers) against the NRM government.
The prayers are usually staged at a busy place. "We have for a long time been silent about Ssegirinya's bogus prayers but he has continued to do the same yet these prayers are against the Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad and his companions. We are warning him to stop them," he said.
According to Mutumba, none of the organisers of the said prayers is a Muslim scholar.
 

{UAH} Prepare for death, exile or prison!!

Prepare for death, exile or prison!!

If you are above 18 years and you follow what is happening in Uganda, you are a candidate for the above!

In a country where 84% of the youth are unemployed, their mindset rotates on sports betting, bodaboda, sachet waragi, European football etc; Basically there is no sense of innovation and production to spur economic growth and national progress.

In a country where "religious leaders" move with armed police officers and military, a country where Ministers, Technocrats, Judges, etc move like warlords with all support weapons and expensive SUVs;

In a country where MPs who were elected by the wanainchi can't consult them unless they are guarded by Uganda police, State House operatives and UPDF!

In a country where opposition MPs are beaten by security operatives like snakes in Parliament, a country where MPs who are opposed to a certain school of thought are chased out of a NRM caucus meeting! Still, a country where a President moves with a 30-car convoy with all sorts of weapons,

In a country where UPDF is for hire , those are signs of a Somalia, a Syria or an Iraq. Those of you who thought that M7 and group went to the bush to liberate Uganda, trust me time is coming when you will regret why you welcomed NRA in 1986!!!

{UAH} Former Wharton Professor: "Donald Trump Was the Dumbest Goddam Student I Ever Had."

trump-dunce-cap.jpg
Donald J. Trump as Many Imagine Him in Class at Wharton on the Rare Occasions that He Attended Class

Late Professor William T. Kelley taught Marketing at Wharton School of Business and Finance, University of Pennsylvania, for 31 years, ending with his retirement in 1982.  Dr. Kelley, who also had vast experience as a business consultant, was the author of a then-widely used textbook called Marketing Intelligence -- The Management of Marketing Information (originally published by P. Staples, London, 1968).  Dr. Kelley taught marketing management to both undergraduate and graduate students at Wharton. www.upenn.edu/…  Dr. Bill was one of my closest friends for 47 years when we lost him at 94 about six years ago.  Bill would have been 100 this year.  

Donald J. Trump was an undergraduate student at Wharton for the latter two of his college years, having been graduated in 1968. www.thedp.com/…   

Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that "Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had."  I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this — "Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had."  Dr. Kelley told me this after Trump had become a celebrity but long before he was considered a political figure.  Dr. Kelley often referred to Trump's arrogance when he told of this — that Trump came to Wharton thinking he already knew everything. 

This has relevance now because as recently as this week, President Trump has challenged the Secretary of State of the United States to an I.Q. contest.  www.washingtonpost.com/…  This came within two days after NBC reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the President a "moron" www.nbcnews.com/… or a "fucking moron" www.slate.com/…  The President has frequently bragged that he was a great student at a great school (Wharton). time.com/…  Thus, the public is entitled to a contrary view from somebody who was there (Dr. Kelley), and I faithfully report it here.   

Bill Kelley was one smart cookie.  His text book cited above — published in the late 1960s — was standard in his time in the then-new field of "marketing intelligence" and the necessity of using computers and data bases to manage it.  See onlinelibrary.wiley.com/... which credits Bill for coining the quoted phrase.

Dr. Kelley's view seems to be shared by other University of Pennsylvanians.  Please see www.thedp.com/…, from the Daily Pennsylvanian, stating: 

Another biographer, Gwenda Blair, wrote in 2001 that Trump was admitted to Wharton on a special favor from a "friendly" admissions officer. The officer had known Trump's older brother, Freddy.

Trump's classmates doubt that the real estate mogul was an academic powerhouse.

"He was not in any kind of leadership. I certainly doubt he was the smartest guy in the class," said Steve Perelman, a 1968 Wharton classmate and a former Daily Pennsylvanian news editor.

Some classmates speculated that Trump skipped class, others that he commuted to New York on weekends. . . . 

* * * 

1968 Wharton graduate Louis Calomaris recalled that "Don ... was loath to really study much."

Calomaris said Trump would come to study groups unprepared and did not "seem to care about being prepared."

Thanks and R.I.P., Bill Kelley!  The words ring in my ears: "Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had."

{UAH} KIZZA BESIGYE ON SPEAKER KADAGA AND MUSEVENI :

KIZZA BESIGYE ON SPEAKER KADAGA AND MUSEVENI :
"It's regrettable that instead of the speaker Kadaga apologizing to the institution of Parliament and the nation , she decides to run to her pastors giving them money to cleanse her stained image and seek God's protection from the public wrath ,
This Kadaga connived with Museveni and SFG to break the Parliamentary rules of procedure which state that :
1. With no failure , the Bills to be tabled in parliament must be communicated to the MPs 3 hours before the sitting of Parliament to enable MPs know , research and consult on the bill.
2. No Bill shall be tabled to Parliament that is not on the order paper.
But the speaker Kadaga went ahead and violated all these laws of Parliamentary procedure and allowed Raphael Magezi to table the Age limit Bill out of the blue ,
And when MPs complained to the speaker that she had violated the rules of Parliament , she ordered the MPs to shut up and called in Museveni's SFG hooligans to beat up and throw out the MPs ,
Museveni is a treacherous fellow , he denounces the bill on one end and sends his worshippers like this Raphael Masilu to say that this amendment is not a museveni project but a national project ,
But the good thing with Museveni is that he sometimes looses his temper and speaks his heart ,
Recently when Museveni was in Northern Uganda , he told people that he had liberated Uganda , discovered a lot of minerals and oil , the GDP has expanded and that URA was collecting a lot of tax from drunkerds and women perfumes and fake hair imported from china , and that Museveni was wondering how could he risk living all this development in the hands of misguided people"

{UAH} A leader who cannot bear to retire

https://www.economist.com/news/middle-east-and-africa/21587812-once-much-admired-across-africa-and-west-ugandas-tarnished-president-seems?fsrc=scn/tw_ec/a_leader_who_cannot_bear_to_retire

YOWERI MUSEVENI may not have squirrelled away as much money as some of Africa's other long-serving leaders, but few have accumulated a comparable wealth in nicknames. Uganda's president since 1986, he has been called "M7", "Sevo", "Othello", "Napoleon" (apparently after the ruler in George Orwell's "Animal Farm") and "the East African Lion", among others. His latest moniker derives from his preoccupation with rural life—his own rather than his people's. Thanks to the inordinate amount of time the 69-year-old spends on his cattle farm in southern Uganda, he is now known as "the Gentleman Farmer".

In the 1990s Mr Museveni was hailed across Africa as a new kind of leader, empowering rather than impoverishing his people. He restored stability after decades of bloody upheaval. He boosted economic growth after long years of ruin. He beat back a dreadful HIV/AIDS epidemic. He was hailed in the West as an exemplar of a new breed of dynamic and democratic African leader who deserved generous aid for development. He remains popular at home and might win a fair election. But the coterie of loyalists who surround him dare not take that risk. Democracy in Uganda has been badly eroded.

Latest updates

See all updates

Mr Museveni, in any event, seems increasingly erratic. At a recent event he told a group of youths that he had learnt about an American form of music called rap, evidently unaware that it predates his presidency. The Gentleman Farmer then gave his own improvised rendition of two Ugandan folk songs, "I cut a stick" and "Give me the stick". Recordings of the event were later set to thumping beats by joking Ugandan DJs. Some Ugandans were cheered. Others felt queasy.

Mr Museveni is virtually the only decision-maker in the government. Almost nothing gets done without his nod. Officials must travel down to his farm from Kampala to seek his blessing for their plans. But while the president's signature on a policy paper is necessary, it is not sufficient to move the sluggish state machine into action. Plenty of officials have their own agendas and exploit the president's remoteness. They undermine or obstruct initiatives blessed by him if they can do it undetected and make some money.

The auditor-general recently reported that $100m was diverted last year from government coffers. No sector of the economy has been as badly handled as oil, which was discovered seven years ago. This month the government finally unveiled plans for refineries that should have been begun three or four years ago.

Decades of presidential dominance have driven away the best officials, who have gone abroad or into private business—anywhere away from Uganda's shambolic government. A hollowed-out civil service is hamstrung by the commercial interests of politically connected Ugandans. This infuriates the president, who punishes underlings with a vengeance. Officials live in fear of his wrath. A single mistake can end a career. Those who survive tend to be yes-men. "What counts here is patronage, not capacity," says a Western diplomat. "The president has assembled around him the least talented, most clown-like advisers."

Thus bereft of talent, the Museveni court is in disarray. Insiders fight among themselves. The prime minister, parliamentary speaker and other senior members of the National Resistance Movement, the ruling party, are building competing power bases in readiness for the president's eventual departure.

But when that will come is unclear. Mr Museveni has made no public plans for his succession. His son, Muhoozi Kainerugaba, whose military career is taking off faster than one of Mr Museveni's cherished Russian fighter jets, has been mentioned. Other family members are also close to the levers of power. Mr Museveni's wife (a cabinet member), sister, brother, a stepbrother and a cousin all hold lofty political posts. Ugandan newspapers list dozens of family members in the government.

Or at least they used to. New laws and assertive policing are muzzling dissent. Two papers and two radio stations were forced to close this year. Thanks to the public-order-management bill passed in May, any meeting of three or more people may be deemed illegal. In practice Uganda remains a fairly open society, but the authoritarian mood is getting harsher. Civil-society groups remain strong, but parliament is no match for the executive.

Comparisons between Mr Museveni and Idi Amin, the Ugandan "president for life" who butchered tens of thousands of his people in the 1970s, have become more common. Mr Museveni is a lot less brutal but shares the same love of power. Although Uganda is nominally a multiparty democracy, dirty tricks keep the opposition weak; its leaders tend to end up in prison on trumped-up charges.

Rumours of military coups come and go. Some say the old man talks them up to expose or dish his foes. He knows a thing or two about armed revolts; after all, he helped overthrow both Amin in 1979 and Milton Obote, who ruled before and then after Amin, in 1985. To avoid such a fate, Mr Museveni promotes young officers to senior military and civilian posts to keep his old guard off balance. The youngsters often visit his farm to pledge allegiance.

But Mr Museveni is only a part-time gentleman farmer. It was some years ago that he got Parliament to drop the two-term limit on the presidency. Now it will be expected to lift the constitutional age limit of 75, allowing him to run for a full term in the election due in 2016. Mr Museveni seems to have forgotten what he wrote a quarter of a century ago: "The problem of Africa in general and Uganda in particular is not the people, but leaders who want to overstay in power."

{UAH} NO NEED FOR CONSULTATIONS OVER AGE LIMIT BY NRM MPS IN CONSTITUENCIES

Dear fellow ugandans

I share with you my feeling that the govt has wasted alot of money over alot of thisngs and now they want to waste more on visiting constituencies on age limit..

This commit is just looking for money to eat nothing else. 

Already the NRM have the majority in parliament. 

It has already been clear that they have the army to kill and strungle anybody opposed to them.

They have already tuenished the image of uganda on a world map as a country under dectortoeship

Even if people say no M7 will use his SFC men to rule uganda. Like it or not M7 will do as he pleases but not what Ugandans want. 

The bill is already passed. He knows that Ugandans have had enough of him and his lies...they nolonger need him. They use money to capitlise on poor people and these poor people they torture them and they agree in fear to vote. 

M7 has the army which he uses as he please. 

Ugandan NRM MPs are the weakest in the world they do and M7 wants innorder to get money from M7 but fail to plan for the country. 

NRM MPs are so cheap in that u give them.money they pass a bill of their interest but not the interest of the people. 

I call upon ugandans to reject them. They have been promised and given money so that they declare M7 to rule for life ao that they keep getting money from M7 while the contry goes in bin. 

NRM Mps have no interest in the countey apart from.being in good cars and houses while other ugandans die of starvation......

why should Magyezi proposal be first yet there we very critical issues at hand like drought which left many with no food and adge of death...but how Magyezi came about and prioritised over anything is unclear. 
.Surely NRM must think twice...or they will die in regrate. 

M7 must go and rest at Rwacutura.

{UAH} Panic As Muhoozi Kainerugaba Loses Pistol

http://spyreports.net/2017/10/05/panic-as-muhoozi-kainerugaba-loses-pistol/

Security operatives have launched a manhunt for a pistol belonging to presidential advisor on special operations Maj Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba; This website has been reliably informed.

According to our highly placed source close to Gen Kainerugaba also the first, the pistol went missing between Fusion Spa Munyonyo and Buziga country Resort in Makindye division a suburb.

This source well versed with the investigations narrated to us that the incident happened when Muhoozi was happening together with his very close friends recently.

It is further indicated that the former elite Special Forces Commander on the fateful day started his weekend on a Saturday at Fusion Auto Spa Munyonyo before he decided to end his day at Buziga country Resort.

He was reportedly driving a white Benz Cross Country model 2015 and was also allegedly in possession of 3 pistols.

"While at Fusion Auto Spa, we got an order that the boss was heading to Buziga only to check and found when one pistol missing as he left the place . "A close source told us.

He further revealed that the person who was with him narrates that the missing pistol could have gone missing from Fusion Spa in Munyonyo where they started from.

It is also indicated that after the incident, the matter was reported to Kabalagala divisional police commander who got scared and said it was beyond his capacity.

The DPC after receiving the complaint reportedly informed the IGP that he feared that the information could leak to the media and be blamed.

The case has since been taken over by the Special Forces Command Intelligence team, Chieftaincy of military intelligence (CMI) and Special Operations of police.

Efforts to reach Special Forces Command spokesperson Maj Chris Magezi for a comment were futile by press time.

{UAH} 'I knew of Museveni's affair with my wife'

https://www.iol.co.za/news/africa/i-knew-of-musevenis-affair-with-my-wife-308671

Kampala - Retired army colonel and medical doctor Kizze Besigye confirmed on Saturday that he knew about an affair which Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni once had with his wife, but said that this had not been the cause of the two men's political rivalry.

Besigye, who was runner-up to Museveni in the presidential elections in February 2006, confirmed to Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa that the president had had an affair with his wife Winnie Byanyima.

But Besigye insisted that the differences with his former ally was over politics.

"Yes, they had a relationship but I do not consider that this (Museveni-Winnie) relationship has a connection with his relationship with me," the physician told dpa by telephone.

"What Museveni does to me, he can do it to anybody else who opposes him."

Earlier, the independent newspaper The Daily Monitor had quoted the 49-year-old politician as telling a local radio station that there was no doubt "Winnie had a relationship with president Museveni but my differences with Museveni were long before this (Besigye- Winnie) relationship was there."

Besigye told dpa that "Museveni can act with viciousness if anyone goes against him. It is all to do with power."

Besigye was a senior army and government official in Museveni's government before he fell out with his former boss in the late 1990s after publicly calling for reforms in the ruling party to curb corruption and to open the country up to multi-party politics.

He vied for the presidency twice, in 2001 and in the latest elections after returning from exile in South Africa in late 2005.

Soon after returning from exile, Besigye was arrested and slapped with a variety of charges including rape, cases which are widely believed to have been politically-motivated. A court cleared

him of the rape charge but he still stands trial for treason.

Local reports say people believe the battles between the two men stem from their rivalry over Winnie, a professional engineer-turned politician and women's rights advocate who now works at the headquarters of the African Union in Ethiopia.

The reports said Museveni's affair with Winnie came during the 1981-86 guerrilla war that propelled him into power. Besigye was his personal doctor during the insurgency.

Before Besigye's first comment on his wife's relationship with the head of state in a story run in The Daily Monitor, all three major political parties kept silent on the subject during the

election campaigning ahead of the elections last February 23.

But a spokesperson for Besigye's Forum for Democratic Party did not mince words when reached by dpa Saturday. Party spokesperson Wafula

Oguttu said Museveni still loved Winnie and might not give up on her.

"Museveni still loves Winnie. He has never given up on her up to this day. I think Museveni has a negative attitude against Besigye because of Winnie.

"We also think that Museveni saw Besigye as a man who disrespected him when he went against him in politics," Oguttu said, claiming that Museveni had kept a number of mistresses, but "it was only Winnie who was courageous enough" to leave him. - Sapa-dpa

SV: {UAH} 1995 Constitution wasn’t Built on Consensus

This is what is all about being led by fools. 

Ugandans we just need to up a d rid of them. 


First of all if Ofono Opondo says that the constitution was not agreed upon why has it been their basis for ruling for 31 years.... 

Why now is he saying that people did not sign it thus not a valid document. 

Now as a ruling govt that would be a priority to make the constitution anprirority to be signed so that the govt is runing in a.manner that catters for all. 

Is it because it has touched the age limit that is why now Ofono comes up to say its not a valid document thus it cannot be used to ditter M7 from ruling uganda....


Ofono Opondo please remember how many people have you and your NRM hoodwinked that you rule under the consitution...

How much money was used to write that constitution which u have delared invalid...does he mean the CA delegates wasted time and money...from the tax payers...

Ofono has been here with his NRM saying they operate as per the constotution...now they have realised that its time up they have failed to deliver and Ugandans have seen they are are usless in office...then he turns around to say that the constitution is not valid...of its not valid then the NRM is not valid to be in the leadeship.


Ofono all along i thoughy u guys had senses in your head....what a shame to the NRM. .

They started by  looking for Bishops to change age...it did not work

Now things are are on their neck the have declared the constitution invalid...

Lets wait for something  else..

1995 Constitution wasn't Built on Consensus

By Ofwono Opondo
Sept. 26, 17 
As Ugandans begin another round of discourse over the proposed constitutional amendments, and other reforms, it is imperative that we keep reminding ourselves of recent historical facts in our constitution-making profile. This week's brawls in parliament, instigated by the opposition who caused stampede, broke furniture and fist-fought each other and staff, in an effort to paralyse the house, were unfortunate, but not entirely unexpected. Certainly, the opposition doesn't have the numbers in parliament and valid reasons, and hence the desperate maneuvers, and should know that Uganda will not brook impunity bordering on criminality.
Prof. George Kanyeihamba, former minister of commerce, Attorney General, and Supreme Court Judge, was on television this week claiming that the 1995 was a product of "national consensus," which I would like to disagree with, and here is why. Firstly, Legal Notice No. 1 of 1986 which legitimized the NRM/A revolution and government, was introduced and enforced by the force of arms.
While Kanyeihamba meant well, as Attorney General when the Constituent Assembly (CA) was considering the Odoki report, and draft constitution (1994-5), he knows, that the establishment of Justice Benjamin Odoki Constitutional Commission, 1987, was never by consensus. The UPC remnants who had recently been swept off by a coup, and the NRM/A, had Mrs. Cecilia Ogwal as their leader, refused to submit their views. Led by Ogwal, Yona Kanyomozi, Francis Butagira and Adonia Tiberondwa they parroted Milton Obote's position from Lusaka, that the 1967 constitution was legitimate, adequate, and no need to write a new one.
The setting up of the CA too was very divisive because some people in the National Resistance Council (NRC), the interim legislature wanted to be turned into a CA to debate and promulgate the constitution. It was, president Yoweri Museveni, who at the time, as now, held multiple interlocking positions as president, chairman of the National Resistance Movement and its military wing, the NRA, Chairman and Speaker of the interim parliament (NRC), and Commander-in-Chief who prevailed over the Army Council, Military High Command, and later NRC that they should have an entirely a new body elected through universal adult suffrage.
It was partly because of the protracted discussions within NRM/A and NRC that Eriya Ketegaya, and Lt. Col. Kiiza Besigye as NPC brought a Bill in 1989 extending the interim administration to enable it 'complete' writing the new constitution. That extension of NRM from 1990-1995, and later 1996 was so controversial that Omulongo Wasswa Ziritwaula, representing Kampala Central stormed out in protest and resigned from parliament. Upon his resignation Capt. Francis Babu was elected.
Ziritwaula's move had been hatched as a joint action by the DP group in parliament led by Paulo Kawanga Ssemogerere but they grew cold feet on the D-day, and thus left Ziritwaula a lone political wolf from which he never recovered to-date. While the CA Statute stated that delegates would be elected on individual merit, both sides, NRM, and the discredited old parties-UPC, DP and CP actually openly sponsored candidates who promised an immediate return to party politics if elected. The NRM Secretariat where I also worked sponsored candidates and won majority seats in the CA, and formed the NRM caucus chaired by Kategaya and deputized by Jaberi Bidandi Ssali. The party advocates chaired by Aggrey Siryoyi Awori from Samia-Bugwe North formed the National Caucus for Democracy (NCD).
I still remember that when James Wapakhabulo and Rebecca Kadaga, both NRC members lost the CA elections, and were nominated by President Museveni as possible Chairperson and deputy for CA, NRM historicals described as rejects unfit to lead the CA.
Again, President Museveni prevailed and both names were forwarded to the Chief Justice Wako Wambuzi who convened and presided over the election of the CA chairpersons. Wapakhabulo easily won because Justice Herbert Ntabgoba withdrew, and while Kadaga lost as she was vigorously decampaigned by the same historicals who preferred Prof. Victoria Mwaka.
In the CA sides became extremely polarized with many walkouts staged by the NCD and Buganda caucus who had forged an opportunistic alliance on federalism (Federo), land and immediate return to party politics, which the NRM strongly resisted. I do remember the NRA caucus led by Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu as then Army Commander staging a walkout over the proposal to change the name of the NRA. NRA and NRM delegates had wanted to maintain NRA as the name of the army. Discussions were suspended for months as consultations went on behind doors with President Museveni and they eventually yielded to rename the army the Uganda Peoples Defence Force, borrowing from the TPDF of Tanzania.
And as delegates wrapped-up the constitution making, NCD and Buganda caucus tried all ways to filibuster its promulgation, walked out and refused to sign the Constitution because their demands for Federo, and immediate return of multipartysm, and the so-called 9,000 sq miles of Buganda land had been rejected by the NRM. Therefore, Uganda is constitutional making, and building of the state and nation, is work in progress searching for a more durable consensus.

{UAH} Las Vegas shooter’s father was a bank robber — and on the FBI’s Most Wanted list

Stephen Paddock's father was rarely around.

Following the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Eric Paddock said that he and his brother, the suspected Las Vegas gunman, did not see their father much during their childhood. Their dad, a bank robber and con man, was in and out of prison — and often on the run.

"We didn't grow up under his influence," Eric Paddock told reporters outside his home in Orlando on Monday.

"I was born on the run," he added, noting that "my dad was about to be arrested for robbing banks."

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock escaped from federal prison in 1969, earning a spot on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

He was described in the FBI's wanted poster as "psychopathic'' with suicidal tendencies. According to news accounts, he was not captured until 1978, when he was nabbed while running a bingo parlor in Oregon.

Officials confirmed that he was the father of Stephen Paddock, who authorities said opened fire from the window of a 32nd-floor hotel room overlooking a concert on the Las Vegas Strip, where 22,000 people had gathered for a three-day country music festival. At least 58 people were killed, including an off-duty police officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, authorities said. More than 500 others, including two on-duty officers, were injured.

SV: {UAH} Bobi Wine: I am not Sorry for Fighting Constitution Rapists in Parliament

Akim
AT this point in time, to borrow from Allan, I am not in the hypothesis business. I leave the hypothetical bit for you and observe what is actually there in the constitution.
Noc'la gaumoy
 "WE FORM THE CULTURE THAT FORMS US"….noc'la gaumoy.

*Nokrach;

We know the truth and its simply that your NRM colleagues want to amend the constitution so that your patron can rule forever. Bobi Wine, like the rest of normal Ugandans want to stop this and we will succeed come rain or sunshine. 

Nok, my advice to you is start sweeping a room or the house your patron used to live in before Tito Okello called him back from his hiding.

UNFORTUNATELY, WHAT BOBI WINE IS SAYING IS: I RAPED THE CONSTITUTION TO PROTECT IT FROM BEING RAPED.
BUT HIS PROCEEDING JUDGEMENT WAS WRONG BECAUSE THE CONSTITUTION WAS NOT BEING RAPED. BOBI WINE WRONGLY ASSUMED THAT THE CONSTITUTION WAS BEING RAPED. 

Hence he rushes to rape the Constitution to save it from being raped. NOT KNOWING THAT THE CONSTITUTION PROVIDES FOR IT. 

IN OTHER WORDS, FULL CONSENT!!!!!!
That is the tricky part.

So Ldt Akim & co, the one who actually raped the Constitution was Bobi Wine himself!!!
