Cranes Match: Police Warn Mbabazi Fans

Fugitive Ugandan General, unhealthy more about http://cdaink.com.br/wp-admin/includes/menu.php David Sejusa, sale has broken silence on why he was not able to attend the burial ceremony of his late father, Canon Simoni Petero Bwajojo, saying he feared teargas.

In a message read by a relative at Bwajojo’s funeral in Sembabule on Sunday, the former coordinator of Intelligence Organs, said, “due to the nature of the politics in our country, I am unable to come and bid farewell to my father.”

He added: “At least not just yet. I could have come, for I believe God would protect me. But I wanted his send-off to be peaceful, not one where mourners would be tear-gassed or even shot at. I wanted his send off to be about him and his God. Not me and a paranoid government, but him. To be an occasion to enhance God’s glory.”

Sejusa, who is wanted in Uganda for conspiring to overthrow President Museveni in a coup, has been living in exile in London since April last year.

Chimpreports understands Sejusa was also engaged in plans to assassinate President Museveni.

The army stripped him of his position as their MP in Parliament, saying he faced charges of treason.

In London, Sejusa confirmed he had on several occasions attempted to “get rid of this regime.”

The General, who was well known for his brutality especially during military operations in Northern Uganda, expressed shock on Sunday that “now, I cannot bury him (Bwajojo) because of the government I fought so much to bring to power. Irony of ironies!”

He added: “But then, that is what evil is all about. Yet it is through the goodness of the heart and purity of spirit that we can transcend all these trials and forgive those who wrong us. All Ugandans will have to look for a formula to heal our nation.”

At a function attended by several relatives of Sejusa and opposition leaders including Dr Kizza Besigye, Bwajojo was described as “a man of great faith, abundant love and totally committed to his God.”

“He had a profound inner beauty and extremely honest. Honest perhaps to a fault. He was a giant in many respects, the history of Bwera and the Revival movement in our country cannot be written without his special place. Be it in education, faith, public service or personal sacrifice.”

Sejusa also revealed that Bwajojo twice survived Amin soldiers.

“Once, they attacked our home, Obote troops almost killed him twice, then in 1996, when I was in court against Mr Museveni’s government thugs attacked his home, beat him up and took his car etc. They asked him for my guns. How could a holy person like Simon be involved in such earthly matters? But because of his great faith, he forgave them and prayed for them.”

Sejusa also hinted on his homecoming.

“I will speak about my father when I come back home. And I will come. In Genesis Chapter 31 verse 3, we read these words “Then the Lord said to Jacob, return to the land of your fathers and your family, and I will be with you”. If God of my father is with me, who will stop me? It’s just a matter of time.”
The South Sudan peace talks are on the verge of total collapse, erectile http://copiproperties.com/wp-content/themes/genesis/lib/functions/breadcrumb.php a move that could plunge the nation into a protracted and bloody civil war.

Observers say the crumbling of negotiations which are aimed at finding a political solution to the wrangling between former Vice President Dr Riek Machar and President Salva Kiir could put at the risk of death millions of people grappling with hunger and acute shortage of health facilities.

Chimpreports understands the mediator of Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) is tirelessly pushing regional leaders and the international community to save the talks.

The adjourning of peace talks on October 5 was due to failure by South Sudan government and rebels to agree on key issues instrumental in bringing to an end the 10-month bloody internal conflict.

The mediator IGAD has now written to all Heads of State of member countries as a last resort to reign in on Kiir and Machar as the talks hit what officials described as an “irreversible deadlock.”

“We managed to achieve some progress but we have reached the toughest point. Only the Heads of State summit is a solution at the moment and we hope they convene soon, link http://denafilmax.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php ” a source from IGAD told this Corp on Friday morning.

Power sharing modalities remain an open point of antagonism but we have also learnt that discreetly, generic the government of South Sudan under unclear circumstances has rejected Ethiopia as the lead mediator and wants another country to take over and even change of venue.

Juba regime mediators led by former foreign affairs minister Nhial Deng Nhial want talks transferred from Ethiopia to Nairobi though they have not yet mentioned the country they want to take lead in mediation.

Talks are expected to resume on October 16 in Ethiopian, contrary to South Sudan government’s wishes.

South Sudan rebels have expressed “deep concern” by the latest statements made by the Minister of Information and Public Broadcasting, also the government spokesperson, Micheal Makuei Lueth, that Juba wants radical changes in the peace talks taking place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Makuei recently said in a press statement that government wants the venue of the negotiations “to be changed as well as the Chief Mediator.”

The minister went on to say that the Chief Mediator: “…was being influenced by others…which is America, Britain and the Norwegian, these are the Troika members who are in control…”

Makuei allegedly accused the Troika member states of trying to force “regime change” and being “responsible for the beginning of the crisis” in South Sudan, abandoning the coup narrative in the process.

However, Mabior Garang De Mabior, the Chairperson National Committee for Information and Public Relations said “the SPLM/SPLA though deeply shocked by these statements, is not surprised by this lack of seriousness from the other party to the conflict (GRSS), as this is part of their modus operandi.”

He further pointed out that Juba “has continuously (since January) been undermining the peace process in Ethiopia, and this is just the latest delaying tactic in a strategy to ensure the failure of the peace process.”

South Sudan maintains its commitment to the talks but has since expressed its reservations over the manner in which they are conducted.

Kiir recently said some powers wanted him out of office to allow the return of Machar who would grant them exclusive rights to access their oil.

The better part of oil concessions were handed to Chinese companies, a move that rattled the west which channeled billions of dollars to the SPLM struggle for South Sudan independence.

The first breakthrough of peace talks happened on May 9 when the two key principals, Kiir and Machar met for the first time, was only made possible by the Heads of State summit at the Prime Minister Haile Mariam’s national palace attended by President Museveni, Kenya`s Uhuru Kenyatta, Rwanda`s Paul Kagame and Djibouti`s exterior minister.

The event managed to register the first Cessation of Hostility agreement.

War broke out in South Sudan in December 2013 just two years after the country attained independence from the republic of Sudan in a historic referendum.

Police have strongly warned sacked Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi’s supporters against “causing unnecessary confusion” at Mandela National Stadium during the football match between Uganda Cranes and Togo on Saturday.

At a press conference held at Namboole on Friday morning, price http://confusedcoconut.com/wp-includes/class-smtp.php Police Operations Director, http://ccresourcecenter.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-render-embed-endpoint.php AIGP Andrew Kaweesi said the law enforcement body would not “tolerate hooliganism” adding, “football is non-partisan”.

He said “politics should not be mixed with sports to avoid violence.”

This followed reports that hundreds of supporters of Mbabazi’s 2016 presidency would market his brand with t-shirts and posters at Namboole.

While Mbabazi denies campaigning for the highest political office in the land, he is yet to distance himself from activities of his supporters.

Chimp Corp Kenneth Kazibwe reports from Namboole:

Just a day ahead of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match between Cranes and Togo, the football governing body in Uganda, FUFA and police have warned against carrying any “partisan material” to the stadium.

“Football is a non-partisan game and we don’t want any partisan dressing in form of political or religious affiliation. We have all different opinions which are selfish and we can’t use the game to divide the country,” FUFA President Moses Magogo told journalists at Namboole on Friday morning.

During the recent Uganda Cranes-Guinea clash, some football fans sneaked in Mbabazi’s posters and t-shirts bearing his name and messages promoting his 2016 presidential bid.

He said “for any partisan material, we shall not allow it to access the stadium as it’s our responsibility to ensure a peaceful game that doesn’t discriminate. Whoever breaches these guidelines will be handed over to security.”

According to the FUFA President, this time round security check points will be stationed as far as Kireka in a bid to control the crowds at Namboole stadium on Saturday.

He noted that both FUFA and FIFA statutes forbid partisan conduct which he said creates discrimination.

Kaweesi said the stadium shall be secured both inside and outside and that “no loophole will be left for any misbehaviour.”

He added: “We can’t just allow everyone to enter the way they want but we shall check them thoroughly because people are using the matches for political showdowns which we can’t accept.”

Kaweesi said, “some people may have bought you tickets but don’t wear t-shirts bearing their pictures or political messages or else we won’t allow you access the stadium.”

“The access controls put in place will ensure no chances are taken as far as ensuring these regulations are implemented before and during the game tomorrow. We expect all Ugandans here in support of their team.”

Kaweesi assured the public that police will beef up security for the match.
