This Tuesday morning, viagra 40mg http://decoreatelier.com/wp-includes/feed-atom-comments.php Police Counter Terrorism Unit scrambled bomb experts to seal off the Constitutional Square in Kampala and Nakivubo in downtown where suspicious bags were abandoned by the so-called ‘Red Top Brigade’.

Inside the bags were stones and a letter to president Museveni warning him of terrible consequences should he not relinquish power.

The ‘Red Top Brigade’ claims opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye, who is under what officials describe as ‘preventive house arrest’, won the February 18 presidential elections with 53 percent of the total vote count and that Yoweri Museveni followed with only 40 percent.

Police officials at the scenes said this was part of a wider plan aimed at destabilising Uganda which security has since busted.

ChimpReports has seen a document authored by Citizens Coalition for the Implementation of Democracy (CCIDU), a shadowy group, laying down out a programme for “ ’mass demonstrations ‘Paka Last’ to oust the dictatorship of President Museveni in order to free all Ugandans from bondage.’ ”

This meant an insurrection whose timeframe would be determined by the end of Museveni’s reign.   This led to massive deployment of security forces on the streets followed by restrictions on movements of top opposition leaders.

According to the CCIDU document circulated within the opposition and civil society groups, it was alleged that Special Forces Command (SFC) had hijacked the Electoral Commission to distort the electoral process, intimidate voters and announce fake results.

Contacted, SFC spokesperson, Maj Chris Magezi described the charges as “utter rubbish.”

He wondered “How could the SFC, even in remote terms, be involved in the conduct of the electoral process? That mandate lies squarely with the Independent Electoral Commission.”

Magezi explained that the, “The only substantive contribution of the special forces, in tandem with the other state security agencies, has been to contribute to peace and security for the citizens of Uganda before, during, and after the electoral process. This process is still ongoing.”

State ‘collapse’

The CCIDU document further stated that government structures had collapsed leading to poor public service delivery and the civil service was under strain due to dictatorship and corruption.

CCIDU appealed to disgruntled security forces to oust the “ideologically inconsistent and incompetent” NRM leadership.

The obscure movement appealed to civil society and opposition to mobilise massively from the grassroots through radio talk shows, social media and other platforms to remove Museveni.

They would as well use slogans such as Free Uganda Now, No retreat, NO Surrender, We Want Jobs and Power Belongs to the People, Museveni Must Go and others to rally support in the country.

“The aim of the blockade demonstrations is to force President Museveni to resign from office of the president of the Republic of Uganda after the most scandalous ever presidential and parliamentary elections in the history of the country in order to free citizens from the trauma and bondage by the regime,” reads part of the opposition masterplan in the CCIDU document.

It was also planned that Besigye would address the nation on clear transitional arrangements and way forward for the country.

The ‘Paka Last’ demos would take place countrywide at all major trading centres and road junctions.

Opposition would as well hold processions to celebrate Besigye’s alleged victory with “music, dance and vuvuzelas.”

The leaked document also stated that opposition had planned that “police and security forces” would join the protests to support protesters, fire teargas away and finish off Museveni.

Protesters were being mobilised to “have some money, food and water reserves at hand” in preparation for “storming with morale main road junctions in trading centres, towns and municipalities; drinking water reserves, block all traffic except ambulances and medical personnel reporting to hospitals and clinics.”

Museveni acts

ChimpReports understands that following the leakage of this document, Museveni met with security chiefs who decided to block social media to cut off communication platforms used to mobilise the uprising.

It was also decided that Besigye must be blocked from addressing the media after the elections as the event was calculated to give moral support and justification for the mass protests across the country.

Police raided FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi before putting Besigye under a blockade at his residence in Kasangati.

Despite calls from the international community to free Dr Kizza Besigye, Museveni is yet to relent.

According to police chief, Gen Kale Kayihura, the law enforcement body’s actions regarding Rtd Besigye are “justifiable both in law and in fact.  We have a duty to protect the people and their property, and ensure there is law and order in this country.”

He said until Besigye retracts his statements of defiance and incitement to violence, “Police shall continue to regulate and closely monitor his movements so that he does not pose danger to public peace and national security.  Moreover, we have information that his planned procession is not just a procession, but rather beginning of a planned and generalized campaign of violence in the City and select municipalities across the country.”

The FDC have since called upon their supporters to maintain acts of defiance across the country, statements official say have threatened national security.

SFC’s Maj Magezi warned: “We are also aware that some elements within the political opposition class are attempting to foment politically inspired violence for their own selfish gain. This is a betrayal to the aspirations of the people of Uganda, who for a long time have supported the armed forces to achieve the sustainable peace and stability the entire country enjoys at the moment. These gains cannot be reversed.”

Following their inability to constitutionally challenge last month’s election results in court, look http://cctvcameraz.com/wp-includes/bookmark.php the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) have this morning tabled other steps they intend take to keep the fire on National Resistance Movement and their candidate Yoweri Museveni who won the elections amidst contestation.

The party made a list of demands they said government must fulfill in an unspecified time frame, discount http://demo.des.net.id/smpharapankita/wp-includes/rewrite.php among them establishment of an independent audit into the presidential election results.

The FDC believes that their candidate Col Kizza Besigye won the February 19th elections, http://contactburlco.org/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-order-refund.php whose results were manipulated by the regime in favor of the incumbent.

The party president Maj. Gen (Rtd) Mugisha Muntu told press at the FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi on Wednesday that the party was dismayed by the manner in which Museveni “has overthrow the political electoral  process by use of the naked force.”

He noted with concern that the regime broke into their party offices several times, laid siege on their premises, harassed their leaders, arrested over 300 party members, as well as their candidate Col Besigye who was arrested nine times in eleven days.

These and more Muntu said were the reasons for their failure to seek justice through a court petition with in the 10 restrictive days provided by law.

Muntu said however, that the party would not stand by and watch, noting that they would continue to work with the civic society, religious leaders and the diplomatic and international community to ensure that government acts on their demands.

“We demand the establishment of an independent audit of the 18th February 2016 elections,” he said, “There are clear and glaring contradictions between what was declared by the electoral commission and what we have gathered across the country. This can only be resolved by an independent audit.”

The party also demanded that police and army operatives are removed from their head offices and the home of their candidate Kizza Besigye.

They also want all their leaders and supporters and innocent Ugandans who have been detained in relation to the elections released.

Asked whether the FDC were willing to join in the election petition filed yesterday by candidate Amama Mbabazi at the Supreme Court, Muntu said this would have to be discussed first between the two sides.

He said, “When they approach us, we certainly will have a discussion because we want to see change in our country. It is therefore legitimate that we look at all the options, but as we speak we have not held this discussion yet.”
