Mr. [Edris] Kiggundu of [the] Observer (Dancing on 11/7 victim's graves).
Is the media helping government cover-ups?
Read Mr. Kiggundu's article:
It is surprising that in the midst of this high profile investigation the state has
decided to mislead us the victims of this tragedy for its failure to stop the bombers.
Now the regime's security organs are diverting the public's attention by pretending to be working. They are secretly conniving with unprincipled journalists like Mr. Edris Kiggundu in his so called EXCLUSIVE Observer article of 21 July 2010 "Telecom manager held over bombing".
Mr. Kiggundu's article is intended to calm us down and reassure us that the
investigations are on course. However, we the residents of Mutundwe are not
convinced, because the media's reporting on 11/7 is full of security briefings.
These security organs are on the defensive to justify their huge budget allocation.
This article shows how the government is in a credibility self-destruction gear by
misleading the large (50 plus) strong number of FBIs investigating the 11/07 twin
bombings in Kampala.
There is lots of information Mr. Kiggundu as a journalist is not telling us, why?
For example this Yemeni terrorist controller who slipped out of the country in April,
what are his names, did anybody in Kisigula zone ever sight this man? Yes he is a terrorist but not a needle. Surely we would have seen him at least once.
If Mr. Kiggundu is not conniving with the security agencies did he take the trouble
to note that the so called hide out house for the terrorist in Kisigula Zone,
Mutundwe, a Kampala suburb is one of the uncountable "safe houses" where Ugandans are being tortured on a daily basis.?
The house in question is one of the many prisons controlled by Brigadier [Elly] Kayanja.
The people of Uganda know it very well that [President Yoweri] Museveni is surviving on disinformation. We should not be fooled by this regime. We the residents of Kisigula zone and other places in Uganda know how JATT and other secret security organs operate.
They always ferry people for torture in houses in residential areas to cover their acts.
To prove the above point you may remember the New Vision article of 27 June 2010 by Herbert Ssempogo "Suspected Thug Shot At Brigadier Kayanja's Home".
The article went: "A suspected thug was on Saturday shot dead at the home of Brig. Elly Kayanja,...The unidentified man allegedly trespassed into the soldier's compound at Kanaala Zone, Mutundwe, a Kampala suburb".
Interesting, again Mutundwe -- a Kampala suburb, what a coincidence!!! The article further went on: "The bullets hit the man's stomach and he died on the road, a few meters from Kayanja's home".
The article was accompanied with a picture of a naked malnourished male dead body. As they say a picture tells the story. This showed a story of a poor tortured Ugandan in one of the Mutundwe safe houses, we know these prisoners are kept there in inhumane conditions, no food, only in clothes they arrest (kidnap) them in.
This man dying on the road, he had taken advantage of laxity of the guards who were dozing off because of their previous busy night torturing prisoners.
This landlady is nothing but the work of security operatives, who was set up to
brief the FBI. It is the security operatives that choose who should speak to the
"A house became a bee-hive of activity with lots of people moving in and out".
Mr. Kiggundu give us a break in Uganda nothing like that can go on without the
watchful eye of the LCs.
According to Kiggundu's article "Forensic experts led by FBI agents ransacked the
house on Tuesday for about six hours.
The house, according to our sources, was virtually empty without any furniture save
for a single mattress..." but this is the way the Museveni safe houses are set, this
was a perfect dungeon for the poor Ugandans but sadly the FBI team is being mislead
diverted from the real task at hand.
In another twist, what Kiggundu does not reveal to us is an open secret of loose talk
by UPDF soldiers in barracks and to their family, friends and within the media
They are talking of a fierce battle between the UPDF and the ADF in Western Uganda and some of them (UPDF) are defecting to the liberation front (the ADF).
Instead of Kigundu informing the public of what he knows from the frontline between UPDF and ADF, he instead informs us that ADF is Al-Shabaab and the other way
In order for our people to be protected from journalist like Kiggundu and the
government who always dance on victims graves, we have been forced to volunteer to inform the public, a role the media houses in Uganda have decided to shun away from, they only prefer to manipulate public opinions by reporting about the president's
tours (campaign) in safe areas Uganda.
Therefore, from our Kafunda club (joint) in Ndeeba we tasked Mr. Mubangizi our
member to head to western Uganda on an expedition to report back his findings on the ADF and UPDF skirmishes.
After a long week in the West, Mr. Mubangizi's report was moving and interesting to
listen to. He reported that the gallant sons of Uganda all over Uganda, with
different backgrounds (a real sample of Uganda) under the guidance of ADF are
involved in vicious battles with UPDF on a daily basis and the UPDF is on the run
most of the time.
He said that it will not be long when Uganda will be free from the NRM-Museveni occupation.
Mutundwe – Kampala
Why Al-Shabab and Butambala?
If you were a profiler of criminal minds, the kinds of Al-Shabab, ADF or terrorists
in general, how much will the following be a coincidence:
1. In the wake of the bombings on 11th July 2010, police said that the arrested a
Ugandan link in Kenya "Is born in Butambala" and nothing much of his identity,
friends, family, work place or residence in Uganda. If police wants information from the public on the "mug shots of the dead bombers", why not display a living Ugandan
to seek the same information?
2. On Monday 19th July 2010, a caller from Mpigi informed Akaboozi Ku Biri FM [radio station] in their 10:00 p.m local music show with Sara Lee that a van full of Somalis was seen heading to Butambala. Why Butambala? This is the Buganda county that will next week host the Kabaka to celebrate 17 years on the throne?
Immediately after the call, listeners were drawn into discussion of the Kabaka's three-day visit to the county. Many preferred calling off the visit or beefing up his
security by Mengo and the state. Was the van seen or a well-planned prank call?
3. On Tuesday 20th July, Kamunye newspaper Page 2 reported that Hassan Batabaire was arrested with bomb-making devices in a coconut at the Agricultural show in Jinja during the Kabaka's closing visit at the exhibition. If the show was on Saturday 17th July, that was page 2 news on Tuesday 20th and a mere police case CRB/2684/2010 at Nalufenya police.
Why would Somalia's Al-Shabab, ADF..... be interested in Butambala or the Kabaka? How much of a coincidence can the word Butambala be of mention to terrorism at the time of the Kabaka's visit?
Please arrest my fears.
