UPDATE: Sejusa Trail Takes Short Break

National Resistance Movement self-employed mobilizers under their group, treatment http://checkhimout.ca/wp-content/plugins/him_scheduler/view-settings.php Bainerugumya Project yesterday morning stormed the party Secretariat at Kyadondo in Kampala demanding for compensation of over Sh 40M so far spent on President Museveni’s campaigns.

The group of more than 10 people clad in white T-shirts invaded the party headquarters seeking the Secretary General’s audience, nurse http://deepcreekflyfishers.org/components/com_jfbconnect/libraries/provider/yahoo/oauth1.php who at the moment was out of office.

Bainerugumya Project member, order http://codapostproduction.com/wp/wp-includes/ms-functions.php Festo Buba told ChimpReports that the group has existed since the NRA bush war of the 1980s and has campaigned for president Museveni though all the previous elections but has never received any token of appreciation from him.

“The group was formed during the bush war by our forefathers who provided meat, water and any other basic needs to the soldiers, but they died without being appreciated by the president,” Buba narrated.

He says the group has been conducting grassroot campaigning for the president albeit without an appointment letter from the Secretariat.

“We have been using our money without being compensated,” Buba complained. “We are here today to meet the Secretary General to amplify our call to meet the president and seek for financial support.”

He added, “We are a group of over 5000 members who deal in agriculture and other small businesses. “We have so far invested Shs 41 Million in the current campaigns from our savings by printing President Museveni’s T-Shirts, posters, flyers and making campaign announcements.

Buba revealed that Bainerugumya Project operates in the areas of Gomba, Kabulasoke, Mukono and Buikwe.
The once most feared military intelligence officer, recipe http://ca-uqam.info/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-section.php General David Sejusa appears before the General Court Martial at Makindye in Kampala following rabble-rousing media remarks, more about http://cnafinance.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.photon.php Chimp Corps report.

Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo says the NRA war historical went beyond where he was supposed to stop by joining active politics which is barred by the UPDF Code of conduct.

“No serving police or army officer of whichever rank is supposed to be member of a political party, rx support candidates, engage in partisan politics, or campaign for a political party. As you may have witnessed, Sejusa was openly announced as part of Kizza Besigye’s taskforce in Nakivubo last year,” said Opondo.

Gen Sejusa is still a serving military officer after the top army leadership refused to retire him.

Sources in Sejusa’s camp say plans are underway by the youth to hold demonstrations until he is released.

Messages were passed on to supporters through social media on Monday night, calling upon youth to walk in a procession to Makindye to show solidarity with the embattled general.

The military says it will disclose charges slapped against Sejusa during the hearing today.

President Museveni who is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces is expected to appoint an officer at the rank of General to chair the court martial trial.

The current court is led by Lt General Levi Karuhanga who is junior to four-star General Sejusa.

Gen Sejusa’s lawyers said the detained officer is in “high spirits and not shaken by what he is going through.’

The Free Uganda movement led by Sejusa has since warned of a possible revolution if their chairman remains in detention.

“The most powerful modern battles for democratic transition are not fought in the jungles of Luweero. No one intends to fight a six-year long war to overthrow the Museveni regime. The People Power Revolution, is a constitutionally permissible struggle that seeks to gain victory in weeks or months not years,” said Free Uganda publicist Vincent Magombe.

“Today’s battles for change are fought by millions of patriotic citizens going on the streets and overwhelming even the best armed army in the world – so our struggle for change in Uganda is in form of mobilising millions of simple Ugandans to take part in peaceful defiance campaign, the type Dr. Kizza Besigye and now, even Comrade Amama Mbabazi are talking about.

Security sources say before arrest, Gen Sejusa was clandestinely mobilising youth under FDC P-10 to remove president Museveni from power through an insurrection.

Magombe said it was a “big tactical and strategic mistake for Museveni to arrest the leaders of the revolution and, accordingly, fuel more anger and hatred in the hearts of the masses against his evil ways.”

Museveni warns

Speaking at a press conference, Museveni warned that “Uganda is not Ivory Coast. Uganda is not Kenya” – in reference to the political violence that engulfed the two countries after elections.

He said whoever tries to disrupt peace or announce results of the election exercise will find themselves at Luzira Prison.

Museveni further said the country is led by men and women with a background of resistance, adding politicians who choose to take the path of violence after losing elections must prepare for consequences.
