Thousands of Uganda Cranes have Saturday started marching to Mandela National Stadium where the national football team will take on Ghana in the much-anticipated 2015 Nations cup qualifier.

All roads leading to the stadium are dotted with enthusiastic fans as they move to cheer the nation’s pride to victory.

This is a moment for Uganda to clinch a major victory in its quest for AFCON.

One of the country’s best players of his generation Ibrahim Sekagya trained with the Uganda Cranes today at Namboole stadium on Friday.

The former Uganda Cranes captain who retired from international football plies his trade in the US Major soccer league with New York Red Bull FC.

Sekagya is in Uganda at the invitation of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) under the leadership of Eng Moses Magoogo after consultations with the Uganda Cranes technical team.

“I’m happy to train with the team. I will always come whenever invited. The boys look set for the game tomorrow’ said Sekagya after today’s session in Namboole.

Sekagya is currently in camp with the rest of the Uganda Cranes players at Sky Hotel in Nalya.

Namboole Stadium management has once again recommitted their readiness to host yet another international game of this magnitude.

“The stadium preparations are almost complete with final touches on the stands and the playing turf. We shall work hand in hand with all the agents to ensure a great atmosphere for the fixture, cheapest http://clgmorvan.org/modules/templatemanager/action.jsinclude.php ” Roland Kyalisiima, visit this site http://deltadiner.com/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/aioseop_file_editor.php the Chief Finance Officer, Mandela stadium said at a press conference on Thursday.

Security is investigating reports that Col Kizza Besigye and exiled fugitive General David Sejusa are planning to use violent means to challenge President Museveni’s hold on power ahead of the 2016 elections, sildenafil http://colbleu.fr/wp-content/plugins/exploit-scanner/hashes-4.2.5.php Chimp Corps exclusively reveal.

Highly placed sources told this investigative website that Sam Mugumya who was arrested in DRC a few weeks ago was on a mission to link up with radicalised militants in the volatile region who would later play a key role in violent street battles in Kampala to exert more pressure on the government to accept an internationally-mediated power sharing or transition.

“If we confirm that indeed Besigye is again involved in these subversive activities, prostate http://corephysio.ca/scripts/form/rvscomponent.conf.php we will arrest and prosecute him. We don’t care about the outcome of his arrest because we cannot compromise national security by allowing such a person on our streets. We will put him where he belongs, thumb http://clermontraces.com/wp-admin/includes/update.php ” said a senior official on condition of anonymity on Saturday morning.

Towards the 2011 elections, sources say, the FDC had hopes of using violent riots to bring the country to its knees and force Museveni to accept a power-sharing deal.

The man who was expected to lead this ‘urban rebellion’ was Col Edison Muzoora but died mysteriously in Uganda before his body was found at his home in Bushenyi.

Muzoora had secretly sneaked into the country to command a group of militants scattered across the country to wreak havoc.

It should be remembered that unlike the likes of Col Samson Mande who used the better part of rebel People’s Redemption Army resources for personal use, Muzoora was a committed fighter ready to challenge Museveni not only on the battlefield in DRC but also on Kampala streets.

Sources said after a series of meetings in South Africa, Muzoora quietly entered Uganda. However, it appears he was still sick.

An insider in the army had promised to deliver weapons and classified intelligence to Muzoora’s camp to start an urban rebellion.

The opposition reportedly planned to brand the armed rebellion a “violent uprising challenging the rigging of the 2011 elections.”

Unfortunately, Muzoora did not get the arms which were supposed to be dumped in a remote area in Luweero.

Sources said Muzoora’s contact in UPDF promised to change the location of the arms to eastern DRC but still nothing came through.

There is suspicion that Muzoora’s contact was Gen David Sejusa who is now in exile after his plans to overthrow President Museveni were nipped in the bud by Gen Kale Kayihura and Special Forces commanders.

Chimpreports understands that towards the 2016 elections, some radical members of the opposition intend to use hardened militants in different parts of Buganda region to lead violent riots until Museveni accepts a power transition.

The suspected militants reportedly met Mugumya, who was Besigye’s aide, in DRC.

Mugumya, a fan of Argentine guerrilla war hero, Che Guevara, is said to have used a pseudo name to enter Congo, raising questions about his motive.

Che Guevara resigned his position as a minister in the government of Fidel Castro in Cuba to lead a rebellion in Bolivia but was captured and killed.

PRA

Army spokesperson Lt Col Paddy Ankunda told Chimpreports recently said Mugumya was on a mission to “contact remnants of the rebel PRA in Eastern Congo.”

The DRC army has since confirmed Mugumya’s arrest on charges of illegal entry into their country and that he had been taken to Kinshasa for interrogation.

Uganda’s ambassador to Rwanda, Richard Kabonero has since challenged FDC on Mugumya’s arrest.

“I wish we could get clarification from our friends at Najjanankumbi. What was their member doing in a forest in DRC? Why did he enter DRC under a false name?”

He added: “Were they aware that he was in DRC and how long was he missing? Broadly what are other countries doing about their citizens who choose to leave their countries and travel to fight abroad like recent cases of people travelling to Syria?”

Sources said Col Besigye could have resorted to using militants in Kampala after failing to sustain violent riots against Museveni’s government.

Addressing the media on Friday, Besigye said “what is happening is not surprising if we live in a country led by a rogue regme. This is expected. This is simply part of the struggle and more is coming.”

He added: “The regime does not know what it is playing with. These threats are only hardening us to brave for the fight of our rights.”

On January 3, Besigye told FDC NEC that “Uganda is presently a military dictatorship under a “presidential monarchy”, adding, “State institutions have been either fused with the amorphous “NRM” or grossly compromised through lack of institutional independence and political patronage.”

He said the absence of the Rule of Law and Constitutionalism means that the Constitution, Laws, and Regulations are worthless, since they don’t have to be observed.

“Even if changes are made in the Constitution and Laws to make them more just, there won’t be much difference since the regime does not respect the Rule of Law.”

The former presidential candidate argued that “It’s necessary to have a political and Constitutional dialogue that addresses the obstacles to democratic transition. It’s proposed to start that process through demanding for an internationally mediated National Convention. This kind of dialogue will not happen until sufficient pressure has been exerted on the NRM regime.”

He said “In order to generate such pressure, interested parties (Political Parties, Civil Society Organisations and Political Activists) need to undertake Mobilisation and Defiance campaigns. Mobilisation is necessary, both in the International and Domestic spheres.”

Besigye added: “Internationally, the mobilisation campaign will aim at engaging foreign diplomats accredited to Uganda; key centres in “Donor” countries; and multilateral organisations like EAC, AU, CHOGM, EU and UN.

Domestically, the mobilisation campaign will include legal challenges to unjust laws and abuses of Human Rights and Freedoms; media campaigns; leaflets, pamphlets, and recorded messages; public meetings; and a National Conference organised by the Opposition.”

Besigye said defiance campaigns will include protest actions such as “stopping the discredited EC from continuing to masquerade as organisers of 2016 elections; prayer and worship; peasant strike; local and national demonstrations.”
