U.S. Urges its Citizens to Leave Burundi

One of the Presidential Candidates Prof Venansius Baryamureeba has cautioned Ugandans against being swayed by some of his fellow contenders’ massive crowds at their rallies, sildenafil http://clipvoice.it/administrator/components/com_users/models/note.php saying that most of these are not genuine but borrowed.

Prof Baryamureeba explained to press on Sunday morning how some of his fellow presidential contestants were investing heavily in getting big crowds to their rallies.

The 46 year old science professor stated that majority of the people attending the rallies of the three major candidates Col Kizza Besigye, thumb http://crosscon.ca/wp-includes/class-walker-page.php incumbent President Yoweri Museveni and Hon Amama Mbabazi have been paid to do so, recipe and that the real truth about their support would be seen in next year’s election results.

“Everybody wants to claim victory after February 18th next year. All these crowds you are seeing are borrowed crowds. When someone is going to Masaka, they pick people from Lyantonde, from Kiruhura, Mbarara and other neighboring areas. The people at the venue are actually much more than the population of the area,” he said.

While updating the press about his campaign progress at City Royal Hotel in Bugolobi, Baryamureeba predicted that one of the three major candidates would get less than 5 percent of the vote.

“What is going to shock you is that one of those so-called big candidates is going to get less than 5 percent of the total vote. It will be shocking and very embarrassing but it will happen,” prophesied Baryamureeba.

He argued that the candidates are buying the crowds, first to create an impression that they have a lot of support countrywide and second; to create an excuse once the election results go against them next year.

“Assuming that Museveni wins, Besigye and Mbabazi want the basis of telling the people that their votes stolen,” noted the former Makerere University Vice Chancellor.

“I want to assure you that these are the same people you are seeing on different rallies. Even when you look closely at the body language of the crowds, they are not genuine supporters who are excited to see their candidate. They simply stand there and watch.”

Prof Barya’s assertions come on the heels of accusations by one of the presidential candidates Amama Mbabazi against the ruling government that some people were threatened in Kabale district not to attend his rallies.

Mbabazi’s camp accused the Kabale RDC Darius Nandinda and other NRM top shots including Augustine Caesar Mulenga and Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde of using threats to stop residents from going to Mbabazi’s rally venues.

But Barya stated that playing the crowds game would not help the candidates, because the masses know what they want.

“They forget that things have changed. Every part of this country now has a community radio. These radios are relaying the manifestos of each one of the candidates. People know what we have promised them even before we go to their areas; they are aware and very vigilant and they know who to vote come February,” he noted.

Professor Barya revealed that he is currently near half way through his national campaigns, having carried out 112 rallies in 41 districts so far.

United States has warned its citizens against all travel to Burundi and recommended those already in the war-torn country to “depart as soon as it is feasible to do so.”

The latest travel warning comes against the backdrop of the worsening political turmoil in Burundi.

Over the weekend, more about http://chachanova.com/wp-admin/includes/class-theme-upgrader-skin.php heavily armed gunmen attacked military installations in Bujumbura, site http://chipinhead.com/wp-admin/includes/misc.php sparking off intense fighting with government forces.

On Friday morning, viagra 100mg over 97 dead bodies of perceived opposition supporters were found on Bujumbura streets.

Some of the bodies had gunshot wounds on the head with the arms tied from the back.

These horrid scenes of terror have since shocked many and attracted worldwide condemnation.

As a result of continuing violence, the Department of State said in a statement that it had “ordered the departure of dependents of U.S. government personnel and non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Burundi on December 13.”

The U.S. Embassy in Bujumbura said it was “able to offer only very limited emergency services to U.S. citizens in Burundi.”

Political violence persists throughout Burundi in the aftermath of the country’s contested elections, an attempted coup d’état and the debate over the President standing for a third term.

Armed groups operate in Burundi and gunfire and grenade attacks occur with frequency.

The U.S. said its private citizens’ homes have since been inspected by police as a part of larger weapons searches.

“U.S. citizens interested in departing should therefore monitor the media, check with airlines to verify flight schedules, and also check U.S. Embassy Bujumbura’s website for the latest consular information, including security messages. The U.S. Embassy continues to monitor potential airport and land border closures,” reads the statement issued by the U.S. State Department on Sunday.

Condemnation

Earlier on Friday, the United States said it was deeply alarmed by the attacks that occurred overnight and continue in Bujumbura.

“We condemn this violence in the strongest possible terms, and we call on all sides to refrain immediately from violence.”

Washington said the East African Community should “immediately convene high-level political dialogue between the government and opposition to defuse the situation,” adding, “recent indications from the region suggest no serious remaining barriers to these talks, so there should be no further delay in commencing them.”

The United States also reiterated its readiness to pursue additional sanctions against individuals responsible for — or complicit in — actions or policies that threaten Burundi’s peace, security, or stability.
