Impeccable reports reaching Taarifa Political Desk confirm that Several Kampala city dwellers have opted to travel upcountry in fear of the unfolding situation as the military war machines begun rolling into the streets ahead of Thursdays Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
Monster military trucks never seen by most Ugandans, have been flagged off from their warehouses onto the streets and are already patrolling the entire capital city- this has left several people in panic.
A former coordinator of intelligence in Uganda, Gen. David Tinyefuza now a staunch critic of President Museveni has observed that pooling military tanks onto the streets is a grave mistake and a return into the past.
“This is exactly what Kampala was before I and General Museveni went to the Bush. We went to fight anarchy, unexplained disappearances of innocent and unarmed citizens and general lawlessness. Ugandans must not accept this situation. I therefore wish to call upon all of you Ugandans, young and old to stand and rise above this intimidation and go cast your vote. Other than installing fear tanks mean nothing, I once commanded them, Besigye Commanded them, Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu did the same but now we dont have even a pistol. I hope that General Museveni realises that he is making grave mistakes and reverts some of these actions sooner than later.”
President Yoweri Museveni has also switched to his military uniform and warned that he will not allow anyone messing around with his country- according to him, the Opposition is clandestinely being funded by foreign elements whom he accuses of not being happy with his government’s progress.
Security agents have been arresting several opposition supporters and sending them into detention centres around the country. The government has also cut off internet and social media platforms. Smarter youths are employing other techniques to access social media using VPN.
However, ICT Minister Judith Nabakooba has warned Ugandans against the use of VPNS, “We have closed Facebook for a moment and whoever is using social media is against the laws of our country. I would like to inform you that even if you are using VPN, we are going to block all kinds of VPNs.”
Kavuma Baker, a Ugandan on Facebook social media noted, “You would at least have closed your eyes and leave this one because everybody predicted it and they already have un-lockable VPN!”
