THE HUNT FOR TVO (TOM VOLTAIRE OKWALINGO) - #UGANDA

For two days now, we have read about the Hunt for TVO. I have no idea why some people think it is a joke and even torment him when he shares about it. Then the wrongful arrest if Shaka. Many Ugandans are still not realizing the implications of curtailing freedom of speech, arbitrary wrongful arrests and bogus Intel using IT with a force with poor experience in Data Mining. You think it is funny? Guess what, one time there will be no one left to fight for your rights. You can ask those who were closest to Museveni and what has happened to them. All this information is public. If you have no support to offer anyone in a time like this, then don't comment on the posts about such issues. Some even insinuate that all the people who talk about our social economic problems are being hunted. Nonsense. You think that Mbabazi could have known what would happen later? No one is immune. If you love your government, then advocate for the rights of the suffering majority instead of enjoying your brown envelop while threatening or attacking people who dare to talk about unemployment, bad roads, corruption, lack of medicine, nepotism, etc.. We are living in a new age now. Everything you say will be uses against you. If you can't face your comment or post appearing on the front page if a major newspaper, then don't say it. Be prepared to defend everything you say on social media. Tuwalanangunzi, tetuwalana gavamenti.
