Exiled former rebel leader Col Samson Mande will miss yet another burial function of his family member; his father Cyprian Kabesiza.
The 95 year old Kabesiza passed on last Sunday morning at Nyakibale Hospital in Rukungiri district after battling a number of old age related illnesses.
He will be laid to rest on Thursday January 28 at Bugongi in Kambuga- Kanungu district at 02:00pm.
Being a political fugitive in Sweden, more about http://cooperativenet.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/nextgen_data/class.image_wrapper.php Col Mande revealed today that would not be able to be part of the send off.
The former leader of the rebel group People’s Redemption Army sought refuge in the European nation after his forces was defeated by the UPDF in neighboring DRC.
“As you all know I cannot come to burry my father. I count on you to step in for me. Go and help me to give my father a decent and huge send off, this web http://darkfey-temple.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-posts-list-table.php ” he said.
Col Mande was also unable to attend the burial of his son Moses Mande who passed in Mbarara last year. Mande believes his son was poisoned.
At the start of last year, http://chipinhead.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/omnisearch/omnisearch-media.php Col Mande revealed that he was finally returning home from exile, placing the homecoming date in July 2015.
He said he wanted to come back home to clear his name in the courts of law, where he faces a number charges relating to terrorism, embezzlement and treason at the Court Martial.
“One of the things I want to come back to Uganda for is to go to court and clear my name. I am not asking for forgiveness, I have a good case; I am now very healthy and will stand trial and win. I will only be requesting the government to allow due course of justice,” he said.
In anticipation of a breakout of widely spread violent riots in the aftermath of the 2016 general elections, seek http://csnn.ca/wp-includes/template.php the UPDF top command under Gen Katumba Wamala has finalised drafting a master plan for defeating planned urban insurrection.
The counter strategy that will see all security organs operating in joint teams to allow proper coordination and efficiency was forwarded to President Museveni late last month.
Opposition strongman Dr Kizza Besigye recently said he would not return to court if elections were rigged and that his grievances would be resolved from the streets.
“We have been scoring a goal over the last [election] games but the referee [EC] has consistently nullified it. But when we this time around score and he nullifies our goal, viagra approved http://crazytour.am/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/integration.php we shall not leave the playground; we shall walk out with the referee because unlike in the past, pilule http://cloud.ca/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-importer.php it’s no longer a joke,” said Besigye.
He further announced the creation of Power 10 (P-10) – a group of ten youth per cell to mobilise and protect votes in the 2016 election.
This compelled Gen Wamala to warn that Besigye’s ploy aimed at raising a militia ahead of the February 2016 elections.
“Power 10 means the citizenry who have decided to say that we want to liberate our power from the captors who wield guns; now what do you do to such people?” Besigye wondered.
Army spokesperson Lt Col Paddy Ankunda fired back, saying security organs “will deal firmly with anyone who incites the public to violence.”
He said there was no apology for that.
Highly placed security sources told ChimpReports that the defence of the nation against the planned acts of violence will start from Kampala.
Security in Kampala will be in the hands of the army.
The Mountain Brigade which provided the better part of security during Pope Francis’ visit is expected to be deployed in and around Kampala to protect key installations such as ministries, Parliament, security facilities, stadiums, round-abouts and public areas such as shopping malls.
This Brigade was formed recently and provided specialised training to manage security and confront threats in urban areas.
The 2009 Buganda Riots caught the army unprepared to decisively confront urban-based violence, leading to deaths of scores of violent rioters.
At one point, Gen Kale Kayihura who had set up a base at Kampala central Police Station was so overwhelmed by the street battles that he had to recall all the DPCs who were undertaking a commanders’ course at Kabalye Police Training School to Kampala to contain the situation.
The unprecedented violence in urban areas was later investigated by a joint committee of security chiefs including then CMI boss Maj Gen James Mugira.
Lapses in security command structures, infiltration, money laundering, hate speech and high levels of unemployment were cited as some of the reasons behind the violence which lasted almost a week and spread widely outside Kampala.
According to the 2016 security master plan, police counter terrorism units will be patrolling the city to crush pockets of possible armed resistance.
Every major police station will be used as a tactical base for soldiers and police to maintain security in their respective areas.
For example soldiers deployed at Katwe Police station will be required to provide adequate security and crush all forms of resistance in Katwe, Makindye, Kibuye round-about neighbouring suburbs. The area will have a commanding officer and intelligence unit reporting directly to the central command.
The military police is set to be deployed in hotspots such as Kampala downtown, Bwaise, Makindye, Kasubi, Mukono Town, Nateete and along Entebbe Road.
At the national level, regional Joint Operation Centres have been created to oversee operations against any form of insurgency. They comprise regional security heads from CMI, ISO, Counter Intelligence, police and counter terrorism.
With fears that Besigye’s P-1- supporters could cause violence, security has already identified leaders of these groups for arrest.
“Our local intelligence officials in cooperation with RDCs have been identifying these P-10 people. We shall deal with them decisively,” said a security source who preferred anonymity so as to speak freely.
Tumwiine Ssekitoleko who served as Go Forward strategist told this website that independent presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi has been working closely with Dr Besigye to create clandestine resistance forces to prolong the post-election violence so as to warrant the intervention of the international community.
“They may have had their disagreements but the two politicians have been working closely on this project,” said Ssekitoleko, a former campaign strategist and chief coordinator of Go Forward.
The two presidential candidates have since ruled out using violence to take power from Museveni.
