{UAH} THE EU SHOULD STOP PLUCKING FEATHERS OFF THE DOVE OF PEACE!


Photo: EU Parliament (Source: Google images)

When there is de-escalation and real prospects for peace, the EU should be careful not to rush into the issue, recklessly adding fuel to the fire. The announced unilateral withdrawal of M23 from area's it captured is a prospect that must be cautiously welcomed, and well managed by all stakeholders, as it represents a ray of hope shining on hundreds of thousands of poor, traumatized civilians in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Any mishandling of the matter literally means death for some innocent civilian.
What the EU should be doing at this material time is support peace, not issue poorly-timed sanctions. This is not Ukraine where everyone, including the EU, wants war!
To cut matters short, a full internationally-monitored public demobilization of M23 is the only guarantee that local populations get back their lives, and have a chance to freely express their humble aspirations for their country peacefully during the fast approaching general election, out of the dark bottomless pit of death, suffering and squalor that insatiable greed has brutally forced on the impoverished population for decades. How we get to this demobilization will require tact, and putting aside anger in exchange for diplomatic pragmatism.
Nobody should be giving anyone reasons, no matter how senseless, to renew conflict, just when the guns are falling silent.

{UAH} Why Biden Shouldn't Have Invited Ugandan Thief Museveni to U.S.-Africa Summit

[Commentary]

Why Biden Shouldn't Have Invited Ugandan Thief Gen. Museveni to U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit 

By Milton Allimadi

The Biden administration has invited one of Africa's most brutal and corrupt dictators, Uganda's Gen. Yoweri Museveni, who once praised Hitler and said people captured into slavery were "stupid," to attend a summit in the United States. 

Billed as the "U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit," the event will be hosted by President Biden in Washington from December 13 to 15. African leaders will discuss a range of issues with administration officials and U.S. business executives seeking investment opportunities. 

It's hard to imagine who's bone-headed decision it was to include Gen. Museveni on the invitation list. Museveni has held power since Ronald Reagan was in office. His tyranny in Uganda and regional militarism—invading Rwanda, Congo, and South Sudan—has spread death and destruction. His conduct repudiates all the ideals the Biden summit claims to support. According to the announcement on the State Department's website the summit's goal is to build on "shared values" between the U.S. and Africa—"Advance peace, security, and good governance," and to "Reinforce commitment to democracy, human rights, and civil society."

This must be a cruel joke, considering that Museveni remains in power by force of arms and by rigging elections. The 2021 vote was so brutal that Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued a statement declaring the election as "neither free, nor fair." In other words, Gen. Museveni isn't even Uganda's legitimate president.  

In November 2020, two months before the Jan. 14, 2021 election security forces massacred Ugandan supporters of the main opposition candidate Robert Kyagulanyi, a.k.a. Bobi Wine, whom many believe is the actual winner of the election. Dictator Museveni himself admitted that 54 people were killed--its believed the true number is well over 100. 

Secretary Blinken in his statement announced sanctions including travel restrictions against unnamed Ugandan officials responsible for the violence before, during, and after the election. Since Gen. Museveni is in charge of Uganda's security forces, and bears direct responsibility, shouldn't he be on the Blinken list of sanctioned officials? How then is he invited to the Biden summit?  

The atrocities continued after the vote, with a campaign of kidnapping, torture, and killings of Bobi Wine supporters

Separately, in December 2021 the U.S. Treasury Department announced sanctions, including asset seizure, against Gen. Museveni's internal intelligence chief, Gen. Abel Kandiho, for the continued campaign of terror. According to Treasury Gen. Kandiho personally participated in the abuses, including sexual torture.  

Museveni thumbed his nose at the Biden administration by transferring Kandiho to the Police force and promoting him to another command position.

Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, son to Museveni and potential successor has been delegated more torturing responsibilities. One of Gen. Kainerugaba's high profile victims was Kakwenza Rukirabashaija, the 2021 PEN Pinter prize International Writer of Courage awardee, and a columnist for my publication Black Star News. Pliers were used to pluck off skin from his legs, thighs and buttocks; he was whipped so brutally that lacerations on his back recalls the iconic image of a formerly-enslaved African in the United States.  Rukirabashaija fled to exile in Germany. 

Even though Gen. Museveni is one of Africa's most corrupt rulers, and his officials embezzle aid money, the U.S. bankrolls his regime to the tune of almost $1 billion annually in American taxpayers' money. 

Museveni's corruption is legendary. In December 2018, a U.S. Court convicted Chi Ping Patrick Ho, a Chinese wheeler-dealer of bribing Gen. Museveni and his foreign minister Sam Kutesa $1 million for concessions in Uganda's emerging oil industry and other businesses on behalf of a Chinese conglomerate. The payment was disguised as contributions to a "charity." When an FBI agent went to Uganda he found no such charity existed. 

The U.S. gained jurisdiction because Ho, who was sentenced to three years imprisonment, wired some payments via a New York-based bank. Ho delivered $500,000 in cash, wrapped Mafia-style as a "gift," when he visited Museveni in Uganda in 2016 to ink business deals. 

If all of these crimes don't faze President Biden—who claimed his foreign policy would be anchored on human rights and democracy— then what about Museveni's comments about Hitler and slavery? 

He's held power so long his outrageous date over decades. In April 1998, a Ugandan weekly, The Shariat, published these comments by Gen. Museveni: "As Hitler did to bring Germany together, we should also do it here. Hitler was a smart guy, but I think he went a bit too far by wanting to conquer the world." A "bit too far" eh? No mention of the six million Jews exterminated.

If Kanye West can be taken for task for anti-semitic statements why is it okay for President Biden to invite Museveni the Hitler admirer? Ironically Kanye  and Kim Kardashian were guests of Museveni in 2018. 

With regard to slavery, Museveni told The Atlantic magazine in September 1994: "I have never blamed the whites for colonizing Africa: I have never blamed these whites for taking slaves. If you are stupid, you should be taken a slave."  

David Duke, the notorious racist, would be condemned for such a statement. Yet Biden invites Museveni who uttered these ugly words to a "leaders" summit?

Why is Biden so blind to Gen. Museveni's brutality, corruption, and other outrages? 

It's true the U.S. is desperate to line up the rest of the world--including African countries--against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine. In August, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations even visited with Museveni to try and get him to condemn Russia.  

Greenfield-Thomas extended an invitation to Biden's summit to dictator Museveni, according to media reports. Coming from an African American, this is even more chilling considering Museveni's slavery statement. Where is the shame?

While Museveni hasn't condemned the Russian invasion yet, perhaps there's a quid-pro-quo and he'll do so after the summit. At the end of the day what's clear is that the Biden administration is double-mouthed; preaching democracy and human rights for Africa, while providing succor, comfort, and $1 billion annually to Museveni, one of Africa's most notorious dictators.  

This sends the wrong message to emerging young leaders in Africa like Bobi Wine who risk their lives by standing up to dictators like Gen. Museveni.

{UAH} Museveni's son Muhoozi threatens to 'crush' journalists


Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni's son Muhoozi Kainerugaba is courting controversy yet again.

The former UPDF commander known for making abrasive statements has his guns trained on members of the fourth estate this time around.

In a tweet on Monday, Muhoozi threatened to 'crush' members of a leading media outlet for attacking the NRM.

"For some of those journalists that like to abuse us...let me say. Nobody will protect you when we come to power! You'll feel us soon. We will crush you!!!"

In a consecutive tweet, Muhoozi accused the outlet of spreading propaganda against the ruling National Resistance Movement.

"Why is it that this NRM government has always promoted propaganda against us?? Why? In Rwanda the media is with us but in our own country @DailyMonitor always attacks us?"

He has in between made several other controversial statements which were all downplayed by his father as harmless.

Muhoozi has been in the media limelight since early October when he threatened Kenya with military invasion and the capture of Nairobi.

Museveni even somewhat rewarded his eldest son with a promotion in the military by elevating him to a full General even after the cryptic tweets which threatened to tear diplomatic links with Kenya.

{UAH} Suspected Kampala serial child kidnapper shot dead

A suspected Kampala serial child kidnapper whose voice recording bargaining for ransom with the parents of one of his victims was widely shared on social media platforms was shot dead during arrest, police have said.
The man who police identified as 28-year-old Fred Mwanje was killed by Flying Squad Unit on December 2, 2022 at Salaama – Munyonyo, Kampala during what detectives described as a "violent confrontation" with their officers.

By the time of his death, Mwanje was linked to four cases of child kidnap, according to police.
It's alleged that on November 19, 2022 at around 10am, Mwanje went into the home of one Abdu Bulega and Shamim Nakawungo where he inquired whether they had children who were interested in professional football training. 
Ms Nakawungo who Mwanje found at their home is said to have asked him (Mwanje) to contact her husband, Bulega about their 7-year-old son. She then shared her husband's phone contacts with him.

At around 3pm, their son was kidnapped when both parents were away from their home in Kibiri "A" zone, Busabala ward, in Wakiso District. 
"At around 5pm, the suspect rang the victim's father on his contact number and demanded a ransom of Shs3 million, in exchange for the release of the victim and also for the reason as to why he kidnapped him. Amidst police investigations, the victim paid a ransom of Shs2 million and the victim was handed over to the parents after medical examination," police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said.
On November 29, 2022 at around 5pm, Mwanje is said to have kidnapped another child, a 6-year-old primary pupil from their home at Makerere, Kinoni in Rubaga Division, and demanded for a ransom of Shs2 million.
He reportedly asked the parents to send him the money via Airtel money number 0701790104 in exchange for their son.

{UAH} Government gives me 8 million per month but I eat it in one week- Gilbert Bukenya


The self-styled 'mahogany' made these revelations in a conversation with Miles Rwamiti for his Urban Television show, Rush Hour.

According to the ex-Vice President, he had no trouble dishing out over a million shillings in tips because it was available way back during his tenure in office.

However, he admits that he finds it difficult giving away even shs50,000 due to the current economy.

Nevertheless, he who cries on a bicycle does not shed the same tears as he who cries in a Benz.

Gilbert admits that he still receives monthly remittances from government of about 8 million as benefits for previously having held the office of Vice President.

However, he complains and boats at the same time that it is still peanuts for him as he consumes it all in simply a week.

Nevertheless, he notes that some of his challenges do not faze him as he is already a made man. He boasts of having a Landcruiser, a Range Rover, a Premio and a Probox

On this note, he advised politicians to always have a fallback plan incase their term in office expires.
