#Museveni crosses Red Line by forcing #Ugandans to accept #AgeLimit, #LandGrabbing bill

Museveni’s cynical land grab and life-presidency plans are key pointers to the final demise of his repressive and corrupt regime.

[A Free Uganda Communication about the state of Ugandan Freedom Struggle – By Dr. Vincent Magombe, Secretary Free Uganda Leadership Committee and Press Secretary FU – 26/08/2017]

There is no doubt about it, the freedom struggles against Mr. Museveni’s cynical land-grab and life-presidency plans are key to the ultimate liberation of Uganda. And Mr. Yoweri Museveni is best advised to start preparing for an inevitable end to his over 3-decades long tyranny in Uganda.

Historical precedents in contemporary freedom struggles across the world, including in African countries, have shown that power-hungry dictators, in the final moments of their reign, are usually too obsessed and fanatical about their power grab and exploitative ways to notice the red-lines drawn by the people and the realities of an approaching END-GAME.

In Uganda, today, My Yoweri Museveni, who has ruled the East African nation with an iron grip, while attempting to transform the country into an exclusive family centred oligarchy, has gone into overdrive partaking in some of the worst eccentricities ever known to the citizens in the entire post-colonial era.

Massive land grabs, actualised through extreme violence and heartless killings of defiant local populations, have become the norm. This, at the same time as frenetic constitutional manoeuvrings to create conditions for a Museveni life-presidency and an indefinite family-based totalitarianism are gathering speed.

In his own warped mind and his incredibly crazed irrational political pursuits, Mr. Museveni sees no reason whatsoever to stop and reflect on those moments of contemporary history that saw many a dictatorial regime terminated and brought down by the over-arching greed and raucous insatiability for too much power, too much self-gratification and too much vanity that soured beyond the narcissistic.
Does Mr. Museveni realise that it is political gluttony and the maniacal absolutism of wanting to consolidate already entrenched tyranny and totalitarianism that brought down renown autocrats, such as Romania’s Nicolae Ceausescu in 1989. Closer to home, African despotic rulers who relentlessly exploited, enslaved, repressed and dehumanised their fellow country folks, and went on to attempt to own whole countries as personal property – the likes of Liberia’s Charles Taylor, Ivory Coast’s Laurent Gbagbo, and, more recently, the Gambian ‘Strongman’ Yahya Jammeh, were humiliatingly toppled in People’s revolutions when the citizens finally said “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH – IT IS TIME TO GO!”

And who knows, perhaps Museveni’s own good friend – the all-powerful Libyan leader, Muamar Gadhafi, who has been widely praised for the high levels of economic growth enjoyed by Libyan people under his rule, and also for his Pan-Africanist and anti-imperialist credentials, might still be alive today, had he not been so obsessed with building such an undemocratic and autocratic political dispensation that was going to crack and implode at some future point in the future, even without the intervention of his arch-enemies from without.

It is almost incredible to think that Mr. Yoweri Museveni, a man who went to the Ugandan jungles of Luwero, supposedly to fight for democracy, could sink that low as to rig his way through a milliard sham elections, and is now hell-bent on the obscene raping of the country’s constitution, with intent to abolishing the 75-year age limit that prevents any Ugandan from seeking to stand as a presidential candidate after clocking this advanced age.

In addition, Museveni and his cronies and business allies have set their eyes on the peoples’ land across the country, determined to forcefully grab and own the very last life resource God provided to people, through the processes of hereditary ownership as well as direct self-empowerment. Mr. Museveni is trying his best to make Ugandans landless, under the guise of the so-called ‘state-acquisition of land for development.’ As most Ugandans know, behind every land-grab, there is a ‘Museveni-grand agenda’ to own what does not belong to him and to share the loot with his family members and his ‘shadowy’ and ‘not-so-shadowy’ business associates.

But really, doesn’t Museveni not know that these ‘Life-presidency’ and ‘Land-grab’ machinations and political manoeuvrings are the very RED LINES, which increasingly informed and ideologically empowered Ugandans expect him or, for that matter, any his cronies not to cross.

O, Good Lord! How blinded can some people be by the material pleasures of this world! How insane can the pursuit of obscene amounts of power drive men and women to ignore the most obvious signs of their own impending demise.

Isn’t it quite telling that multitudinous anti-land grab and anti-life presidency storms have of late been brewing right across Uganda? Doesn’t Mr. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni realise that the END of his political journey is nigh?

One simple pointer that might perhaps convince the Ugandan dictator to wake up and save himself and his beloved ones from impending tragedy -  Mr. Yoweri Museveni, do you see the growing anger and desperation of Ugandans to get rid of your regime? Perhaps you might wish to look closer to yourself, if you do not believe that the rest of Uganda has turned against you. Just look at your own NRM party, where even your own close associates and supporters are now making a stand not to allow you to grab the People’s land and not to have your way as regards the constitutional amendment to lift the 75-year age limit.


The Struggle Continues!
