Gen Olara Okello given 15-gun salute: 


Posted  Monday, February 16  2015

At Kitgum, Gulu Acholi, Uganda - 

A Gun fire shook the serene flat plains of Madi Opei, Lamwo District, in whose midst many sons and daughters of Acholi lie.

To the passerby and residents in far flung villages, the deafening gun sound could have been mistaken as resumption of the ebbing Lords Resistance Army rebellion that ravaged Acholi several years ago.

But this was the culmination of ceremonies by the Special Forces of the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces to send off another of Acholi’s sons, Lt Gen Bazilio Olara Okello, with full military honours.

Under the command of Capt Moses Kaniini, the army accorded Lt Gen Olara Okello a 15-gun salute, in a reburial on Saturday afternoon.

Gen Olara Okello died in exile in Sudan on January 9, 1990, and was buried in Omdurman near Khartoum.

His remains were returned to the country last Thursday.

The reburial was attended by some UPDF top brass and local politicians.

The casket draped in national colours was heavily guarded by the military police, the same force that forced him into exile in 1986. A military drum was sounded 15 times before a red flag was raised to flag off the 15-gun salute.

Clad in ceremonial military attire, eight colonels “stood to attention”, tightly holding onto their swords. They drew them, pointed them into the sky as pallbearers led by Brig Charles Otema Awany carried the casket to the grave.

As the casket was lowered, a soldier sounded the bugle- the last post-to announce the demise of a general as part of the military burial ceremonies. The clergy led by Vicar General of Gulu-Archdiocese Mathew Odong led prayers for the repose of his soul.

The reburial invoked emotions among relatives and residents who lived when Gen Olara Okello and his men were in charge of the nation.

However, by granting him a befitting send off by his former adversaries, was a sign of reconciliation between his family and the current government.

Gen Museveni commanded the National Resistance Army (NRA) rebels, now UPDF, that toppled the UNLA troops commanded by Gen Olara Okello. When the NRA took power in January 1986, Lt Gen Olara Okello fled to Sudan where he sought asylum. He later succumbed to diabetes and was buried in Omdurman, Sudan.

Speakers described Gen Olara Okello as a courageous fighter.

Gen Olara Okello commanded troops that staged a coup against former president Milton Obote and was in charge of the country as de facto head of state between July 27 and 29 before handing over power to the Gen Tito Okello Lutwa.

Gen Olara Okello left behind two widows, 19 children and 31 grandchildren.

The salutes

According the commonwealth military burial customs, a four-star general is given 17 gun salute, 15 for a three-star (Lieutenant General), 13 for a two-star (Major General), 11 for a one-star (Brigadier). A President is given 21-gun salute.



"Don’t use my name to grab traditional lands" - says the long serving President of Uganda as he campaigns for democratic re-election for a 6th term in office.


Posted  Tuesday, December 1   2015


President Museveni has ordered for the arrest of any person found using his name or that of State House to grab land in Karamoja region.

President Museveni said this last Thursday at a press conference held at Morulinga State Lodge in Napak District.

The President’s orders came after he was asked by a journalist whether he was aware his name was being used by land grabbers claiming to be working in State House.

The Presidents replied: “I have never sent any one to get land in Karamoja. Whoever wants the land should follow the right procedures,” he said.

According to the survey carried out by the Ecological Christian Organisation (ECO), 97 per cent of the land in Karamoja has been licensed to 147 investors who are holding exploration and mining licenses ranging from 10 to 30 years but the community does not know yet the land in the region is owned communally. The President said he would write to the ministry of land to cancel some of the licenses acquired illegally.



Over 100 mineral companies in Karamoja

By David Lumu


The frantic jostle for minerals in Karamoja by companies has caused a problem of large scale land acquisition, a preliminary report by the Center for Basic Report has revealed.


Prof. Josephine Ahikire, the executive director of the Center for Basic Research (CBR) said that the concentration of mining companies in Karamoja has a direct implication on women rights and how communities interface with companies that have acquired land to establish mineral industries.


“It is not really about pin-pointing, but identifying communities that have experienced the large scale land acquisition problem and looking at how women are interfacing with the process,” she said.


Land policy experts also argue that the quest for land acquisition in Karamoja is raising a puzzle of land development versus the protection of individuals and communities.


Dr. Rose Nakayi of Makerere University Law School told New Vision that although large scale land acquisitions are not an accident of contemporary time, government must come up with a clear delimitation between government and public land.


Nakayi said that what is spanning out in Karamoja is “a challenge of international capitalist players and the desire to have Uganda develop.”


“Acquisition of land by foreigners must be explained to the local communities. Foreigners cannot acquire customary land, they can only acquire leases,” she said.


Eng. Simon D’ujanga, the state minister for energy said that ever since the country’s remotest area was pacified by disarming cattle rustlers, over 100 mineral companies have been set up by investors.


“In the recent past, we have tried to market the region and the country at large. We now have over 100 mineral companies in Karamoja and we are encouraging more investors,” he said.


First lady, Janet Museveni, the minister for Karamoja affairs is credited for championing the transformation of Karamoja by courting donors to invest in the region.


A 2011 survey by the Uganda department of geological survey and mines at the ministry of energy found that Karamoja has gold, limestone, uranium, marble, graphite, gypsum, iron, wolfram, nickel, copper, cobalt, lithium and tin.

The survey indicated that land in Karamoja is owned communally, which makes it difficult for the mining companies to identify the rightful owners for compensation or consultation.


Prof. Ahikire said that as companies begin to explore the minerals in Karamoja, voices of land grabbing, environment damage, limited information of land laws and marginalization of women are starting to come out.


D’ujanga said that land in Karamoja is acquired by investors according to the law. The Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) puts the population of Karamoja at 1.2 million people.

Kyankwanzi now place for wicked decisions - Fr Gaetano


Posted  Sunday, February 15  2015



The parish priest for Kitanga in Kabale Diocese, Fr Gaetano Batanyenda, has said whereas the NRM/NRA high command used Luweero to liberate Uganda, they are currently using Kyankwanzi to bring down all they promised Ugandans.

Fr Batanyenda was on Thursday addressing the press in Kabale Town where he said all the undemocratic decisions that do not have popular support such as the lifting of presidential term limits, endorsing President Museveni as sole candidate and the proposed lifting of the presidential age limit are always first taken to Kyankwanzi for endorsement during NRM party retreats.

“It’s as if Kyankwanzi has been turned into a place to turn down all the democratic ideals that were hatched during the NRA/NRM liberation struggle in Luweero. All religious leaders in Uganda should join us in preaching against the negative trends our country is taking to avoid disastrous situations,” Fr Batanyenda said.

“Kyankwanzi has become a place of condemnation where negative seeds about hatred, nepotism, sectarianism and other forms of injustices are being sown, contrary to the spirit of the Luweero Bush War struggle...,” Fr Batanyenda added.

He said if the information that MPs are demanding Shs300m to allow President Museveni rule for life are true, it would prove how greedy our leaders are, instead of demanding better salaries for health workers and teachers and ensuring enough drugs in government hospitals.

UPC calls for Reconci-liation Commission 


Posted  Thursday, February 19  2015

Kampala- Uganda:
Uganda Peoples Congress (UPC), another old dictatorial political party has demanded the establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, describing as opportunistic, the way NRM government is forgiving past political leaders it demonised yesterday.

“One minute a leader is labelled a swine and before you know it, he is turned into an eminent hero.

The NRM government should stop the ad-hoc forgiving of political figures, it is an opportunistic way of handling a very traumatic period of our past,” Mr Joseph Bbosa, the UPC vice president, said yesterday.

Mr Bbosa’s comments come in the wake of Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) taking over the reburial of the remains of the late commander of the Uganda National Liberation Army (UNLA), Lt Gen Bazilio Olara Okello.

Lt Gen Okello was exiled to Sudan in 1986 when the National resistance Army (NRA) under the command of President Museveni toppled the Gen Tito Okello Lutwa government. Lt Gen Okello was then commander of the UNLA.

He is said to have succumbed to diabetes in 1990 and was buried in Sudan.

Mr Bbosa said the commission will be charged with investigating and forgiving every political crimes offender and would be comprised of eminent persons in and outside Uganda.

He pointed out the war in northern Uganda from 1986-2008, the September 2009 riots in Buganda and the Luweero triangle war of 1981-1986 that brought President Museveni to power as some of the incidents that need to be investigated by the proposed commission.

However, the government spokesperson, Mr Ofwono Opondo, said government does not see any need for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

“The UPC has all the platforms to express their issues including the media, courts of law and Parliament which has a Human Rights committee. Let UPC first tell Ugandans why it abolished kingdoms and made Uganda a one-party State,” he told the Daily Monitor on phone yesterday.



The International

Criminal Court says that it is on a visit to the Continent of Africa on invitation by its member states:

Posted  Tuesday, March 3  2015


Soroti, UGANDA- The Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court has said the ICC is in Africa on invitation by African countries that are state parties to the Rome Statute and not by choice.

Ms Fatou Bensouda, who finalised her visit of northern and eastern Uganda to acquaint herself with the effects of the LRA war yesterday, said the attack on the court by African heads of state is unfair.

“Leaders should not expect to commit atrocities and expect to be above the law. Those days are over; ICC was created to help the victims,” Ms Bensouda told a gathering comprising civil society, security and political leaders in Soroti Town.

She said African Union and ICC share the same values on human rights and are both against impunity. She said Uganda ratified the Rome Statute in 2003, and requested for help on LRA war crimes. She said investigations are also on going in DR Congo, Ivory Coast, Central African Republic and Mali.

“It’s very clear we work in transparent manner,” she explained.

Ms Bensouda said the ICC believes in fact-finding, the reason she came to listen to the victims of the LRA. One of the LRA commanders, Dominic Ongwen, is at the Hague awaiting trial in January 2016.

Ms Bensouda promised that more ICC officials will be coming to take statements from LRA war victims to help her office table a solid case before the judges. This, she said, is the reason why she asked judges to adjourn the Ongwen case to January 2016 as opposed to August 2015 as earlier indicated.

Mr Musa Ecweru, the state minister for Relief and Disaster Preparedness, thanked the prosecutor for coming to listen to the war victims.

The background

President Museveni has often bashed the ICC. During the Independence Day celebrations last year, Mr Museveni described the ICC as “a biased instrument of post-colonial hegemony.” The President was unhappy with the ICC for indicting two sitting African presidents; Omar Bashir of Sudan and Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya. Mr Bashir was indicted for war crimes in Darfur while Kenyatta was accused of fanning election violence in 2007. Mr Kenyatta’s charges have since been dropped.



Museveni turns coat and apologises to ICC: "We are on same side".

Posted  Wednesday, March 4  2015  


Kampala, UGANDA,

President Museveni has said he is still on the same side with The Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) notwithstanding his .misgivings.

“Despite our differences, we are on the same side,” Mr Museveni told ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on Monday night, according to a statement issued by State House. The ICC Chief Prosecutor has just concluded a five-day tour of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) war-affected areas in northern and eastern Uganda.

“We had to hand over Dominic Ongwen because he was arrested from a different country and had committed crimes across several countries. If he was arrested in Uganda, we would have charged him here,” the President said.

The remarks come less than three months after the President; while speaking at Kenya’s 51st Independence Day in Nairobi last year, said he was “done with this type of court justice"

President Museveni, accused the court of being a tool of Western powers to witch-hunt African leaders. The court handles major war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity, for which a couple of African leaders have been indicted.

“People of the West should leave their foolishness. I am done with the ICC,” the President told a cheering crowd at Nyayo Stadium in Nairobi.

However, in Monday’s meeting, the President further stressed that Uganda will cooperate with the court and avail it all the necessary information and access to witnesses that it may need.

The influence of North American terrorism on the continent of Africa:


It is the spread of the so called fight against state terrorism as done in Guantanamo bay in Cuba or as it was done in Latin America(South America) to fight the spread of Communism:

The law process of stop, grab, arrest and detain or murder is the order of the day in this country. This is done right in the front gardens of the Courts of Law, Kampala.




The Army of Uganda has spoken out against its determined efforts to help America to fight world terrorism whenever it will be.

It has re-arrested a third time the Kaweesi murder suspects as the courts of law releases them for lack of evidence: 


The suspects being shoved into a mi

The suspects being shoved into a mini bus by armed young security operatives, well trained to fight terrorism, shortly after the innocent African citizens had managed to secure bail from the Uganda courts of law. 


The Uganda army has explained the re-arrest of the suspects in the murder of former Police Spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi following their release on bail.

The Uganda Army spokesperson, Brigadier Richard Karemire, says the suspects were picked up by joint security forces and are locked up at a gazetted facility on allegations that they are peace violators.

“Our people deserve peace and security forces will do whatever they can within the laws established to ensure that,” said Karemire, he, however declined to divulge details on where the suspects are being held.

Armed security operatives on Wednesday re-arrested four of the eight people shortly after being discharged by the Registrar of the International Crimes Division of High Court Ms Esther Nasambu, following their bail release by Justice Lydia Mugambe.

They are Yusuf Nyanzi, Jibril Kalyango, Joshua Kyambadde and Yusuf Mugerwa. The four were picked up together with their lawyer, Mr James Mubiru.

Both uniformed and plain-clothed security officers closed the main gate of the court premises to block the suspects from leaving.


However, the operatives opened the gate when a vehicle attached to the Office of the Director of Prosecution, approached the gate.

As the car exited, the suspects who were riding in two vehicles; belonging to Mr Mubiru and another belonging to Mr Godfrey Turyamusiima, a lawyer, tried to exit the court premises but were rounded up into a waiting vehicle and driven to an unknown destination.

Kaweesi was shot dead on March, 17, 2017 together with his bodyguard Kenneth Erau and driver, Godfrey Mambewa.
Days later, the suspects were later picked from various districts in the country and charged with murder, aggravated robbery and terrorism.






In Uganda, the Northern province is involved in a fishing war  betwen Pallisa and Ngora districts on Lake Nyaguo off Lake Kyoga:

Tension emerged between the fishermen of Pallisa and Ngora over illegal fishing gears that were being used on the lake. 

It is all about appreciating the environmental problems the Northern province is faced with as the Great Northern Sahara Desert comes closer to the Equator: 

5th January, 2019


By Mudangha Kolyangha


Local leaders from the two districts of Pallisa and Ngora have resolved to suspend all fishing activities on Lake

Nyaguo until issues causing tension between the two
communities are resolved.

During the inter-district security meeting, both districts agreed that fishing activities should be temporarily suspended to pave way for the two communities reach to a common understanding on the fishing gears.

The Pallisa LC5 chairman, Mr John Micheal Okurut told Daily Monitor that ever since tension broke out between the communities on either side late last year, resulting into the death of two people, the district has been the epicenter of fights.

“We have held a series of meetings in which the inter-district security committee resolved that all boats and fishermen should be registered and also fishing activities be suspended until further notice.This was done to curtail further clashes between the two fishing communities,” Mr Okurut said.

He explained that no body will be allowed to fish on the lake until all the issues raised have been properly discussed and action taken. 
Tension emerged between the fishermen of Pallisa and Ngora over illegal fishing gears that were being used on the lake.

Both sides were counter-accusing each other  of illegally using fishing gears that were not recommended. This however, sparked off a disagreement amongst the fishermen operating on Lake Nyaguo. 

The Beach management committee [BMC] headed by Mr Faustino Mwanika, and his accomplice attacked  Mr Calvin Opedum, Mr Omunyokol and Mr Silas Omudu from Ngora district, for using illegal fishing gears.

During the operation by the Beach Management Committee, a fist fight erupted and in the process two people; Calvin Opedun and Omunyokol, reportedly drowned into the lake while Mr Silas Omudu  survived.

Upon the death of these two people, angry relatives armed with machetes and clubs stormed the village on the side of Pallisa, looted goats, sheep and valuable house-hold properties forcing police to respond.

The Agule LC3 chairperson, Ms Jane Francis Atuko, said that ever since  the nasty incidence has left many families traumatized and fleeing their homes for fear of revenge.

Lake Nyaguo is a finger of Lake Kyoga that is shared by three districts of Pallisa, Kumi and Ngora and remains the biggest livelihood for the communities around the lake. 

“This is not the first time these two communities are engaged into fighting over use of  illegal  fishing gears. We have had several meetings but the situation continues to worsen and lives are lost because of the matter,” Ms Atuko said

The Deputy Resident District commissioner, Mr Emokol Onyango, said the move to suspend all fishing activities on the lake was because of the prevailing circumstances that was still breeding insecurity on the lake. 
“We need to harmonize the situation on both sides because if the status quo remains the same, it will not end the fight,” Mr Onyango said.

He said that despite the situation being under control, the police remain on standby to maintain surveillance in case of more attacks. “We need not to give room and people kill each other because of fishing gears.We need to work as brothers and sisters for betterment of our families since majority depend on this lake for livelihood” he said.

Fishing activities on Lake Nyaguo is no-more until the inter-district security committee finds it more peaceful to allow the two communities resume fishing but this will be done if the fishing communities comply to the laid down guidelines and this will involve fishermen and boats getting registered for easy tracking.

Mr Onyango further said that communities involved in unlawful fishing have to either ditch the banned activities or procure the recommended fishing gears if they will be allowed back to continue with their activities.

Previous incidence
On May 28 2017, Police rescued two fishermen from being lynched after they were suspected to have been part of the gang that has been terrorizing their fellow fishermen on the lake. Mr ChristopherAkamu and Mr Isaac Ariyo, both from Ngora, survived death after they were found using illegal fishing gears and even destroying fishnets of other fishmongers.






The Uganda Army is to try Bobi Wine, the flamboyant Member of Parliament and musician, over the possession of a military equipment around the borders of the Congo, Sudan and Uganda:

Mr Yasin Kawuma, Bob Wine's driver shot dead by one of the thousands of guns in the District of Arua adjacent to the two massive African countries that have been in never- ending civil wars for a very long time. These countries are the North and South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine

Mr Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine 

Government announced yesterday that Kyadondo East Member of Parliament (MP), Mr Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine will today be charged before the army court in Gulu over possessing a gun.

The other detained MPs, including Gerald Karuhanga (Ntungamo Municipality), Paul Mwiru (Jinja East), Michael Mabikke (former Makindye West MP) and Kassiano Wadri (Arua Municipality MP-elect) are expected to be charged today with yet-to-be known offences.

Detectives from Arua led by West Nile Regional CID chief Herbert Mutonyo drove to Gulu yesterday and recorded the suspects’ statements, Gulu CID officer Ronald Were said.
“The alleged offences committed by the suspects happened in Arua town, they are only being detained at our station. The officers from Arua are taking the lead in the investigations,” Mr Were said.

There were conflicting accounts on where the group would be tried, with officials in Kampala saying the suspects would be produced in Gulu magistrate’s court today. But a senior police officer in Gulu said they were to be taken back and charged in a court in Arua where they allegedly committed the alleged crimes.

The fate of Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake was unclear by press time, but photos circulated on social media showed him with a swollen hand and deep cuts to his fingers. Lawyers who accessed some of the suspects said Bobi Wine, was not in the police cells.

Their arrest, just as that of 28 other persons, followed the alleged stoning of one of the vehicles used in President Museveni’s convoy.

Mr Kyagulanyi’s driver, Yasin Kawuma, was shot dead on the same day at Pacific Hotel car park in Arua.
But First Deputy Premier Moses Ali, told Parliament yesterday: “Kyagulanyi will appear before General Court Martial in Gulu on Thursday [today]. Kyagulanyi was found with a gun.”
“Allegations of torture are not true. This is the government statement; there is no torture at Central Police Station cell,” he added.

Gen Ali also said Mr Kyagulanyi had earlier been checked into a military hospital in Gulu.
He added that all the persons arrested are in custody at the Gulu Central Police Station and are accessible to their relatives and lawyers.

Responding to the government’s statement, Mr Gilbert Olanya, the Kilak South MP, FDC, said the government should tell Ugandans what type of gun was found on Mr Kyagulanyi.
“Secondly, he [Gen Ali] dismissed allegations that our colleagues were tortured. We have evidence, photos of our colleagues who are lying in the hospital almost lifeless. For example, we have [a picture of] Francis Zaake. The blood oozing from his hands; the eyes are swollen, the ears are shattered. I do not know if Zaake tortured himself.” Mr Olanya said a police officer in Arua had told him on Tuesday that the government is going to “teach Mr Kyagulanyi and Mr Zaake a lesson that they will never forget.”

The Kigulu South MP, Andrew Kizza Kulaya (Independent), questioned why, if the MPs now in custody were not tortured, why government took Mr Kyagulanyi to a military hospital.
“The [First] Prime Deputy Prime Minister has informed the House that Mr Kyagulanyi was taken to a military hospital in Gulu…I wonder what takes one to a military hospital, [one] who on Monday was very healthy. In the campaign, he – Kyagulanyi – was moving on his own. And the minister comes here to tell us they have not tortured any of our colleagues. What a lie, Prime Minister!” Mr Kulaya said.

MPs Lucy Akello (Amuru), Florence Namayanja (Bukoto East), Monicah Amoding (Kumi), Kabale Municipality MP, Andrew Aja Baryayanga – Independent, Betty Aol Ocan, the LoP, also spoke out against the way their colleagues were being treating.
Meanwhile, six MPs were assigned to follow up the cases.
