INTERVIEW: Phina Mugerwa Opens up On Music, Cindy and Muyiisa

The regional body, patient store http://connectgroups.org.au/wp-admin/includes/class-theme-installer-skin.php Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Executive Director Mahboub Maalim has congratulated the Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta upon the dropping of charges by the International Criminal Court, information pills http://chipinhead.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sal/class.json-api-token.php Chimp Corps report.

In a letter sent to State House Nairobi through Kenyan ministry of Foreign affairs, http://curiousmediums.com/wp-includes/taxonomy.php the IGAD chief maintained the regional body was behind Uhuru after being charged with crimes against humanity and other related offenses committed in the aftermath of 2007/8 Kenyan presidential election violence.

“I wish to convey my heart-felt congratulations to you (Kenyatta) and the people of the Republic of Kenya on the 5 December 2015 announcement by the International Criminal Court (ICC) of its withdrawal of charges against Your Excellency,” part of the letter seen by this website reads in part.

Mahboub said the charges were politically motivated and insisted Uhuru was innocent.

“In March 2011, I issued a statement in which I maintained that the charges against yourself and all others were politically motivated, and were not the result of a credible judicial process. The IGAD fraternity and I believed then as we do now in your innocence and we are gratified that you have been vindicated.”

ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda Friday said she had dropped the charges against Kenyatta after falling short of getting information to secure his conviction.

She claimed to have persistently sought to secure the cooperation that her office required from the Government of Kenya in this case in order to execute her mandate but Nairobi did not render necessary assistance.

“Crucial documentary evidence regarding the 2007-2008 post-election violence, including concerning the conduct of the accused, can only be found in Kenya  and is only accessible to the Prosecution through the assistance of the Government of Kenya.  This crucial assistance was ultimately not provided, as confirmed by the recent decision of the Trial Chamber,” said the prosecutor.

African leaders accuse of ICC of conducting selective justice that serves interests of powerful countries and lobby groups in the West.

Kenyatta was charged, as an indirect co-perpetrator, with five counts of crimes against humanity consisting of murder, deportation or forcible transfer, rape, persecution and other inhumane acts allegedly committed during the post-election violence in Kenya in 2007-2008.

Mahboub said the dropping of charges against Kenyatta has strengthened the spine of IGAD which rallied African nations to stand right behind Kenyatta.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni who is IGAD`s instrumental member at the Heads of State level recently warned that African Union would consider its cooperation with ICC for harassing African leaders.

“IGAD has been instrumental in rallying other African States for solidarity, particularly against ICC’s targeting of sitting Heads of States. That solidarity has grown so strong in the past few years to the extent of generating a call for mass withdrawal of African States from the International body,” said Mahboub.

The IGAD chief`s letter pointed that the dropping of charges will now allow the body and Kenyatta dedicate time on other pressing issues in the region like peace and security.

“The Republic of Kenya and the entire IGAD region is at the moment grappling with urgent challenges in the areas of peace, security and development. The conclusion of this case will allow you to devote your undivided attention to exercise leadership in addressing all these regional concerns, including your constitutional duties of governing and improving the lives of the Kenyan people.”
Mabior Garang, erectile http://companyimpact.com/components/com_contact/contact.php the son of founding father of Sudanese People’s Liberation Army, buy information pills http://codapostproduction.com/wp/wp-includes/widgets/class-wp-widget-meta.php Dr. John Garang, has for the first time passionately revealed the secrets why he sided with Dr. Riek Machar, the man who betrayed and mutinied against his father in 1991.

Mabior Garang de Mabior who is now the Dr. Machar`s rebel movement (SPLA- In Opposition) Chairman Committee on Information and Publicity spoke to ChimpReports in an extensive interview on Saturday at an exclusive hotel in Kampala which we have been publishing since weekend.

28th August was a dark day in the history of the South Sudanese struggle led by Dr. Garang for autonomy and economic equality from Khartoum regime when SPLA top official, Dr. Machar toed with the enemy Omar Al-Bashir`s government and mutinied in Bor resulting to the death over 100 SPLA soldiers mainly from the majority Dinka tribe that late Garang belong to and wanton destruction of properties.

The two doctors turned liberation fighters (Garang and Machar) were only officially reconciled over 10 years later in neighbouring Kenyan Capital Nairobi in 1992 when the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between SPLA and Khartoum was about to take a centre stage and hence need of full cohesion within SPLA to have a better negotiation capacity.

When the first and bloodiest internal war since independence broke out on 15th December late last year after a sharp disagreement between President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Dr. Machar, the latter and many South Sudanese thought Garang`s son was going to support the head of state against his former deputy because of the 1991 incident.

On the contrary, Mabior and his mum Rebecca Garang Nyandeng who had also on a diplomatic and softer tone disagreed with party chairman, Kiir in the same ruling SPLM party national convention, remained principled and joined Dr. Machar`s side as the party and national army SPLA split into two hostile camps.

On Saturday, Mabior opened his heart on why he supported Dr. Machar.

“Yes, Dr. Machar indeed betrayed my dad in 1991 and the people of South Sudan including Kiir himself and the whole world are wondering why I again sided with same man,” Mabior stated in soft tone.

“That was though unnecessary, a rebellion within a rebellion led by Machar who had his grievances then. They understood mistakes of that time sat down and agreed as men to work together again. Machar himself acknowledged the mishap and got back with my dad,” Mabior added.

“My dad died in 2005 when he had fully reconciled with Dr. Machar and our family holds no single grudge against Machar for 1991 event.”

In another twist of events, Mabior, to the shock of this writer who has been closely following events in South Sudan, disclosed another man whom he said also betrayed his dad. Mabior changed his tone, looked straight into the Chimp Corp`s face, saying President Kiir betrayed his dad in 2004 in Yei, a town near to the border with Uganda which has remained instrumental to the world`s youngest state since the beginning of the liberation struggle.

“Everybody only focuses on 1991 but Kiir also mutinied against my father in 2004 in Yei and no one talks about it. It happened and I am openly telling you now,” Mabior emphasized.

“In fact my dad died in 2005 many years after reconciling with Machar but his demise was only 9 months when Kiir betrayed him.”

Mabior however remained optimistic that Dr. Machar`s side, to which he belongs, shall reconcile with Kiir`s and serve their country together for the better of the world`s youngest nation which only got her independence in 2011.

Phina Mugerwa: I personally don’t take nude photos because I find it immoral.

For my friends, Desire and Brenda I encourage them to start a new life because however much they try, they can’t reverse what has already come into hands of the public.

ChimpLyf: What word of encouragement would you offer to your fans and what should they expect?

Phina Mugerwa: I love all my fans, thanks for your support in every aspect in the hard times and even when things are good, all I promise is not to embarrass you and to keep the music coming.
