Live: #Museveni opens speech @ #NRMConference, paying tribute to party members who passed away since last conference

12:45pm: Museveni begins his address at Namboole:

I greet all of you the delegates of the National Conference.  I extend condolences to all of us for those of our members who, since the last conference, are no longer with us on this earth.  One of those who left us is the Rt. Hon. Eriya Kategaya, one of the Executive Committee Members of Fronasa in 1971.  Let us stand up for a minute of silence to remember all those of our comrades that left us.  May their souls rest in eternal peace.

When we talk of political organizations, if we are to do so meaningfully and profitably, we must talk about three words: ideology, progressive politics which means applied ideology and organizational work which means the forms of political organization and the methods used in the process.

Let us start with ideology.  Ideology is the sum total of both the diagnosis of societal problems and the prescription for their cure.  I do not have to protract this discussion by quoting the writings of the various cardinal historic thinkers and actors over the ages such as Adam Smith, Karl Marx, Lenin, Maynard Keynes, Mao Tse Tung, Mwalimu Nyerere or Samora Machel.  They were all grappling with these two aspects: the diagnosis of society’s problems and the prescriptions for the cure of those problems.  When the diagnosis is accurate like when Adam Smith said in his book, “the Wealth of Nations”, that “Industrialised production is admirably suited to the application of the division of labour, whereas agriculture, by its very nature, resists specialization,” then society is able to move forward until it meets a new obstacle that needs fresh diagnosis.

He gave the example of a pin which, though small, had 18 specialised operations. His pointing out of the importance of the division of labour and specialization was a historic understanding to the struggle of producing more wealth. Of no less importance, was his pointing out, at that time in 1776, that while agriculture was important, it is manufacturing that made countries richer.

He wrote on page 13 of his book, “The Wealth of Nations”, as follows: “The most opulent Nations, indeed, generally excel all their neighbours in agriculture as well as manufactures; but they are commonly more distinguished by their superiority in the latter (Manufacturing) than in the former (Agriculture)”.   Society, guided by that insight, will progress until it meets a new obstacle that needs fresh diagnosis and prescription.  He also helped to understand the role of self interest (private enterprise) in creating wealth.

One of his famous quotes on this issue goes like this: “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner but from their regard for their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love.” In otherwords, the butcher, the brewer and the baker work so hard in order to serve us, not out of their ultruism and love for us, but out of their self-love. If, on the other hand, the diagnosis is inaccurate like in the case of the bullionists who held that wealth is measured by the amount of precious metals owned, society will stagnate like Portugal and Spain, who excelled in stealing gold and silver from South America and killing the Red Indians, did.

In the case of the NRM, after many years of scrutiny, we discovered two useful words and targets.  The two words were: Prosperity and Security.  The question we had to answer was: “What are the factors that can lead our society, our tribes, our clans, our families, to prosperity in the context of the modern world characterized as it is by the money nexus?  What are the factors that can lead these component parts of society to security?  The two words:  Prosperity and Security.

What does prosperity mean in the modern context?  It means that each of our individual families has sufficient income to live a good life, the family members are educated and they are healthy.  Where will the income come from?  The income can only come from any one of the 5 sectors: commercial agriculture, industries (manufacturing, processing ? big and small), services (shops, transport, hotels, professional services, etc), ICT (ebyuuma bya kalimagezi) and Public Service.

Family members who are old enough to engage in gainful employment can participate in four of the above sectors either as entrepreneurs or workers. The four are: commercial agriculture, industries, services and ICT.  As far as the fifth one, Public Service, is concerned, people can, of course, only participate in the form of employees of the central government, local governments, municipal council governments or government parastatals and agencies.

What, then, are the factors that can stimulate, sustain and cause to thrive the four sectors that can guarantee the prosperity of our families?  There are three major factors that can do that.  These are a critical mass of the buyers and consumers of the goods and services produced by our families and communities; infrastructure to support the production and exchange of those goods and services (electricity, roads, the railways, ICT, etc., etc.) and security of person and property (in otherwords, peace in the country).  There are other subsidiary and supplementary factors such as regulatory framework, etc.  However, in my opinion, those three are the basic and cardinal ones: market (buyers of goods and services); infrastructure; and peace ? security of person and property.

It was this understanding that helped the NRM to defog the ideological and political situation that we confronted in the 1960s, 70s and early 80s.  The question we had to answer was: “If the prosperity of families and communities was dependent on markets to buy their goods and services, on good infrastructure and on peace, what, then, should be the ideological principles of a political organization that could have the capacity to provide a solution to the predicament of the people?

This is why I always like to descend to the lowest rung (level) of the ladder, the family and the community (the latter commonly referred to as the tribe).  Who buys the goods and services of a given community?  Most often those goods and services are not bought within the tribe.   Why not?  It is, mainly, because many of the tribes or sub-tribes produce similar products as already pointed out.  Hence, A in that tribe cannot buy from B or vice-versa because they are producing similar products.

I always like to give the example of the Banyankore who specialize in producing milk, beef, bananas, coffee and tea.  As far as the first three products are concerned, they rarely buy from one another on account of producing similar products.  Who, then, are the rescuers of the Banyankore in the form of buying their products?  It is the people of Kampala, the people of Uganda who buy their products.

Hence, the prosperity of the Banyankore is not, mainly, based on the Banyankore but on the rest of Ugandans.  Coffee and tea are bought by the international community; but, of course, they are conveyed to the coast through the non-Banyankore parts of Uganda and other parts of East Africa.  Even in these, the Banyankore are dependent on the other Ugandans and East Africans for prosperity.

Even in the pre-colonial, pre-capitalist times, barter trade existed throughout the whole length and breadth of East and Central Africa ? between Bunyoro and Buganda, between the interior and the coast.  Banyoro, for instance, used to specialize in hoes manufacture, Kooki and Buhaya in bark-cloth, etc. Unfortunately, the tribal kings would foment endless troubles through inter-tribal wars which would, somehow, interfere with this trade.

It is this realization that galvanized our abhorrence to the sectarian ideology of tribes or religion, the chauvinism against women and the marginalization of the disabled, the youth, etc.   It enabled us to firmly and scientifically distil the first principle of NRM from the fog of perceptions that were abundant in Uganda at that time. This is the principle of patriotism or nationalism as it is sometimes described. It, therefore, became the first ideological principle of the NRM.

In order to guarantee the prosperity of the families and the communities, we have, however, already seen that the internal Ugandan market is not enough ? first of all, the coffee and the tea of the Banyankore are consumed mainly outside Uganda and conveyed to the coast through the other parts of East Africa.  Besides, even for the products consumed in Uganda ? milk, beef, bananas, etc. ? the internal market is not enough.  Our prosperity will be better if our regional partners in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Congo, etc. buy from us as they are doing.  You all have seen the impact of those markets on our economy and prosperity.  This need for the Ugandan market and the regional market is necessary for all the tribes of Uganda, not just for the Banyankore.

10:50am: Chimp reader, Ronald Agaba Bills says he woke up only to find soldiers near his residence in Bweyogerere.

9:59am: Chimp Corp Sam Waswa gives now gives us latest live report from Namboole. He says the delegates’ conference has been closed to the media.

On this bright Monday morning, the sharp sun rays pierce ferociously through the eastern side of the great Mandela National Stadium as it all gets hotter and yellower with more arrivals.

About 10,000 delegates of the ruling National Resistance (NRM) are expected here to discuss and endorse the party’s constitutional amendment proposals that were over the weekend received and approved overwhelmingly by the party’s top organs CEC and NEC.

Atop the agenda is a major one that proposes to empower the NRM chairman, President Yoweri Museveni to handpick the party Secretary General as opposed to being democratically elected by party members.

While this could be the latest deadly blow to the ruling party’s founding principle of democratic governance, it is being received with much enthusiasm as an antidote for the much needed balance of power inside the NRM.

The recently severed relations between president Museveni and SG Amama Mbabazi, observers say, have made it cumbersome for the former to run an NRM institution with another elected bull therein.

The atmosphere at the stadium is not that of a mouth-watering game of the Uganda Cranes but an anticipated election victory.

The security detail of a normal presidential function has been multiplied two or threefold, quite a nightmare for especially journalists who are the only team being issued official accreditation tags today.

The rest of the delegates were accredited over the weekend 11 kilometres away at the Kololo Independence grounds.

President Museveni and First Lady Janet paid a surprise visit last evening to the accreditation team and delegates at Kololo to ensure that all is intact for today’s function.

Most of the delegates Conference proceedings we are being informed are closed to media.

“You can only cover the Opening ceremony, and after that, we will request you to leave us. We will pick you again at the media centre at 5pm to cover the closing ceremony,” said a media coordinating officer.

As per the dictates of the this National Delegates Conference (#NRMConf2014 on Twitter)’s organizing committee, only Yellow T-shirts bearing the picture of president Yoweri Museveni are tolerated inside and around the stadium.

There’s so much colour sensitivity here that as a news reporter, I elected to don those that wouldn’t get me into trouble. They are much more neutral.

Notable police and UPDF deployment is visible around the stadium and the neighbouring townships of Bbanda, Kireka and Bweyogerere, following previous reported plans by Amama youthful supporters intended to storm the delegates conference.

Meanwhile, there’s  a lot of evidence that the spotlighted Amama Mbabazi, who is yet to arrive at the venue, will not have much to do to reverse this move save for challenging it courts of law, as he was recently quoted in the media.

Some of the delegates speaking to us look excited by the fact the Mbabazi will be isolated though the day.

“He’s going to be one against 10, 000,” says one from Western Uganda.

But for a clever politician that he is, there’s not much know about what Amama Mbabazi’s next move is going to be after today.

It’s only anticipated that only after being defeated here, will he will come open on his 2016 strategy. It is what he reportedly told a group of supporters he recently met in Mbarara town.

Mbabazi is said to have walked out of Saturday’s NRM  Central Executive Committee (CEC) infuriated by a majority vote for the president to appoint the party SG.

He however denies the claims, asserting that he only walked out with permission from the president, to further scrutinize the constitutional amendment.

7:30am: The much-anticipated NRM National Delegates Conference kicks off Monday at the tightly-guarded Mandela National Stadium, a few kilometres from Kampala city.

Dozens of Special Forces Commandos have been deployed in and outside the stadium.

Elite military and police units, sniffer dogs and armoured fighter vehicles have been stationed at the stadium to boost security at the high profile and historic event which will be presided over by President Museveni.

Chimp Corps Kenneth Kazibwe and Sam Waswa who are giving live coverage from the venue say the military has been deployed along Kampala streets right from Kololo ceremonial grounds where accreditation of delegates was taking place last week – through the Jinja road stretch up to Namboole.

Soldiers carrying AK 47 rifles and police patrol cars are a common feature in the neighbouring suburbs.

In Kireka, several routes have been diverted and others closed to allow ease of access by the delegates.

Some journalists have since complained that their names were scrapped off the list for unknown reasons.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) National Executive Council (NEC) has adopted the proposed amendments of the Party constitution from the Central Executive Committee and forwarded them to the National Conference that is slated to take place today Monday at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole in Kampala.

During today’s discussion, President Museveni is expected to give a speech to the NRM delegates.

Presidential sources said Museveni will contextualise the history of the NRA revolution that gave birth to the NRM political party, the organisation’s ideology, challenges and future plans.

The head of state will as well speak about the NRM achievements and mechanisms put in place to consolidate them and also condemn corruption that has tainted the government’s image.

Sources further said Museveni will also emphasise internal cohesion and rebuke divisive forces hell-bent on destroying the party from within.

The NRM delegates are also expected to endorse the resolutions of the National Executive Committee which include having a National NRM Secretary General who is appointed by the party Chairman.

This amendment is likely to attract stiff resistance from embattled Secretary General Amama Mbabazi’s supporters at the conference. The claim such a move would disenfranchise delegates and give more unchecked powers to the chairman.

However, Museveni supporters say he needs more authority to crack down on undisciplined and divisive members in the party to maintain internal cohesion,

The delegates are also expected to show support for the idea of having a chairperson a Chairperson and one other member of high moral character and proven integrity to lead the party’s Electoral Commission.

NEC last night proposed that the Secretary General, the National Treasurer, the Deputy Secretary General and the Deputy National Treasurer shall be “full time Party Officers who shall not hold office in Government or any Government department or Agency of Government or a local Government department.”

The NEC yesterday resolved that such persons shall not be part of anybody in which government has a controlling interest and shall not stand for any elective Party or national office.

Today’s conference will decide whether to endorse such a move that would see non-government officials take over the NRM secretariat which Museveni recently accused of presiding over “dormant” structures.

Buganda Road Court has sentenced Jolly Tumuhirwe, malady http://communityartsprogram.org/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/textarea.php a 22-year-old maid accused of torturing 18-months-old Arnella Kamanzi in Kampala to a four-year sentence at Luzira prison.

In her ruling, viagra sale http://citrusresearch.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-pagenavi/scb/options.php magistrate Lilian Bucyana said despite the fact that the maid pleaded guilty to save court’s time, visit this site the act of torturing a kid simply because she was being mistreated by its parents was not right and that “it was a bad decision to transfer one’s anger to an innocent child.”

The magistrate ordered Luzira prison to ensure Tumuhiirwe is rehabilitated so that “when she comes out of prison after serving the sentence, she will be a reformed person.”

While appearing before City Hall Grade one magistrate Moses Nabende, Tumuhiirwe recently admitted torturing Arnella before begging for mercy from parents of the baby.

She further asked the angered nation: “It was an error on my part. I request the whole country to forgive me. This will not happen again.”

The state prosecutor, Jolly Tushabe, requested court for more time to produce more witnesses and facts to expose Tumuhiirwe’s brutality.

Police had also released more investigation findings indicating that the infamous Kampala brutal maid had a history of torturing babies.

Speaking at a press conference at the police headquarters in Naguru last month, Police’s Director of Criminal Investigations Grace Akullo said Tumuhiiwre brutalized children of her former employees as well.

The suspect was in November secretly filmed battering baby Arnella, a clip that went viral majorly on social media, sparking nationwide public anger.

The graphic footage, which is taken from a camera hidden in the corner of the living room, shows the woman thumping the little girl when she resists feeding and then throwing her to the floor, beating her with a torch, before stepping on her and kicking her.

The father of the tortured kid, Erick Kamanzi, welcomed the sentence, saying “it will serve as an example to all maids who mistreat people’s children wherever they are to work.”

He also thanked God that his kid is alive and welcomed the guilty plea that “proved to the world that the video was not edited.”
