Bobi wine the Mp ok Kyadonda commonly known as the leader of People power Movement commented on what the Army did to the ladies who were peacefully demonstrating over the 15% increase in their tuition.
In his words, bobi wine said , “Earlier today, female students’ leaders at Makerere University set out to hold a peaceful demonstration against a 15% tuition raise. They rose up to speak on behalf of so many poor students who end up having to drop out of university on account of very high tuition fees.
Instead of protecting their constitutional right to protest peacefully, the military was called in. Students, especially ladies, were roughed up and arrested. Others were brutalised and taken to jail. Information coming in shows that some are being dismissed from the University, while others have been given warning letters.
For starters, I must salute the courage of these young women. It gives me great pleasure to see women rise up to speak for social justice. This is evidence that our struggle has come of age- dictatorship and bad governance are in trouble.
In the same manner, I condemn the violent crackdown of a peaceful demonstration by unarmed students who are only expressing their frustration with an unfair and oppressive policy. It is not a crime to peacefully demonstrate! It is a right! Our struggle is about restoring fundamental human rights, as well as ensuring social justice for all citizens.”
I Wanted to stand but for the Good of the Struggle I gave up to Dr Besigye so that he can race also with my support. That’s where the saying “Hajji Alagidde Tuwe Besigye Akalulu” came from
“Hajji Nasser Ntege Ssebagala on Bobi Wine”
While appearing on local tv station Former mayor kampala Al-Hajji Nasser Ntege Ssebagala commonly know as Seya had to say this. Many people have a lot of hope in him,the only challenge he has now is persistence. This is the right time for Bobiwine to challenge president Museveni.
Me I supported Dr Besigye not because I had failed. When they stopped me from contesting for presidency ,we had three options on the table. 1. To go to the bush, 2. To wait for another elections. 3. To get some one who had the same ideas like us.
We agreed with the last one and we supported Dr Besigye whole heartedly, this is where the famous HAJJI ALAGIDDE slogan came about.
The same situation therefore has resurfaced but this time to Dr Besigye, he must command all his people and support to yet another political giant and its BOBIWINE.
He has been approved by al most all people and most importantly has the support of international community. I therefore urge Dr Besigye to give a stick to this young man”.

Their was a war between MP Amelia Kyambadde and Dr Hilderman where Amelia was claiming to have helped alot Hilderman, Hilderman has responded so straight in the statement below.
MAWOKOTA ISSUES ARE MORE MAWOKOTANIAN TO BE INDIVIDUALISED.
NEW VISION News paper on Saturday published an Article that AMELIA HITS BACK AT HILDERMAN. As I went through events of the day I landed on this one which looks almost similar. I decided to pen to the public a few things.
Am a son of Mawokota being legible to serve Mawokotanians at any level because am more than qualified basing on requirements. At 38yrs now, am No longer a small boy, our Jajas joined public work young than us but we fail to understand why in their regime they do not respect us but rather call us boys while they were respected and supported by our grand parents of that time.
Why i am contrsting for MP Mawokota North come 2021.
1) It’s my constitutional right as a son of Mawokota.
2) I have necessary requirements
3) As a son of Mawokota I am interested in serving the Mawokotanians, they are my parents, relatives and my real people. The personal attachment to the community is far than the office many are yearning for.
4) With due respect Hon Amelia announced serving us for the last term. I respect people with integrity that’s why I am affected with some statements from her. As sons of the soil we began to prepare ourselves.
I have nothing personal with Jaja Amelia, I am contesting as a son of the soil to carry on with her achievements and also rectify her weaknesses. No body is perfect but reasons why public offices have durations and contracts is to have and allow different talents. It takes civilised people to apreciate this principle.
Amelia did stuff for me, but these were all done for the many things I was doing in return. Actually I did more but because Mawokota was more than my personal gains I took on whatever offers she could have had not considering the genuine payments if I regarded her as a project.
Mawokotanian challenges are more than dishing out money and each gets a 2000/= or more. They need the hook to fish than the fish to eat that single day. The Mawokotanians have primary challenges which can actually be solved by themselves but need mobilisation.
Mawokota needs a leader than an administrator, the governor attitude in Mawokota and Mpigi in general have collapsed all organs.
We want and need a leadership connection is Mawokota and entire Mpigi in general. Challenge me with how many meetings organised for leaders from LC3, District Council and Hon members of parliament for the past 9yrs collectively with emphasis of Mawokota issues. We need a united Mawokota but not an individual driven district like it is now. Leaders only smile to each other in public but unable to offer the other a signature if required. These are all key issues.
At 38, I want to preserve and carry on with Hon Amelias achievements, and also work on where she has failed. If DMS records had not given me an offer to record Mazongoto, I would not be here.
So is leadership, before given platform no body can never realise your potential.
It’s Hon Amelia’ s turn to show if she can support another candidate or addicted to being supported.
The people power coordinators have urged their fans to Go and verify their voting power VERIFICATION EXERCISE HAS STARTED
You are hereby informed that the voter verification exercise has started today Monday 21 October 2019. It is going to be conducted at village level during village council meetings that will be carried out for a period of eight (8) days until Monday, October 28, 2019. The purposes of the verification exercise are:
a) To allow persons who may have applied for registration by NIRA and desire to vote, ascertain whether their names have been included on the National Voters Register.
b) To provide an opportunity for public scrutiny of the voters’ roll in each village in the district in order to identify particulars of persons who are ineligible (i.e. those who neither reside nor originate from the respective parish) from appearing on the register (i,e. the Dead (D), those persons who may have Left the Area (LA) and Other reasons).
c) To raise awareness about and encourage participation in cleaning of the National Voters’ Register at village level.
d) To identify all Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) in the respective villages for purposes of compiling the registers for PWDs in preparation for the update exercise.

The nile news reported Little has been done despite plans to get rid of street children and no one seems to be listening to the government directives on removing these children from the streets.
According to the report released by AfriChild, a civil society organisation, poor circumstances, trafficking and abandonment remain the major causes of the ever-growing numbers of children on the streets.
It is estimated that the global number of street children is over 100 million and in Uganda, estimates indicate that there are between 10,000 to 15,000 children on the streets around Kampala, Jinja, Iganga and Mbale.
According to the study, many factors ranging from domestic violence, poverty in homes and mistreatment have pushed some of the children to the streets
The Executive Director of Africhild, Timothy Opobo, said the plight of children on the streets is a very big question to the country that must be tackled with immediate effect
Opobo noted that government needs to move faster and resettle and rehabilitate these street children because they can be a threat to the country’s development.
“These children are going to become social problems. They are going to be the one leading in crime, recently we saw the directive from the president directing the police to address the gangs but the gangs are an after effect of these children who have stayed on streets without love ,without any attention resorting to crime as the next means of survival,” he said.
Andrew Ndyaguma from the Haven for African Children, said the public has continuously judged children on the streets harshly which does not solve the challenge.
“Some of them steal not because they want to. Some of these children actually are good,”he said.
The digital trends says that The Nürburgring is where automakers go to set lap records, but Mini had a different point to prove when it showed up at the German racetrack with its first all-electric model.
The 2020 Mini Cooper SE did not set a blazing fast lap time on the 12.9-mile ‘Ring, but the lap was impressive for another reason. The driver didn’t use the brakes.
Like most electric cars, the Mini Cooper SE has both conventional friction brakes and regenerative braking, which uses the resistance of the electric motor to slow the car down. This is primarily used to recapture energy that is normally lost as dissipated heat, helping to recharge the battery pack. But it also allows the driver to control speed solely with the throttle, what electric car drivers fondly refer to as “one pedal driving.”
The news from car connections indicates that BMW will recall most of its newer models, including the Toyota Supra, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Phantom, for a rearview camera flaw.
The camera settings in those cars can be adjusted to no longer project a rear image when in reverse, and that setting stays the same the next time the vehicle is put in reverse, which doesn’t comply with the NHTSA standard for “rearview mirrors.”
The recall for the design flaw covers 257,481 models made from 2018 onward, according to paperwork filed with federal regulators this month.
Included in the recall are 2019-2020 3-Series, 2018-2020 5-Series, 2018-2019 6-Series, 2019-2020 7-Series, 2019-2020 8-Series, the 2018-2020 X3, and the X4, X5, X6, X7, and Z4 from model years 2019-2020.
This is the second time BMW has recalled the 2020 Toyota Supra, which is a joint product development based on the Z4 roadster. In addition, the recall includes the 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan and 2018-2019 Phantom, which have the same rearview camera setting.
News from verge, Instant messages from 2016 suggest that Boeing may have misled the Federal Aviation Administration about a controversial safety system of its grounded 737 Max jets, Reutersreport http://Nailes.com
The messages, between two Boeing employees, raise questions about the safety of the MCAS software that is thought to have brought down two 737 Max jets, killing a total of 346 passengers.
In the messages, a Boeing pilot named Mark Forkner griped that the MCAS system was making the plane difficult to fly the 737 Max in simulation, according to a similar report in TheNew York Times.
“Granted, I suck at flying, but even this was egregious,” Forkner said, according to a transcript reviewed by the Times.
Motoring News, Truck YeahThe trucks are good! G-Wagen, Jimny, or Jeep? Three squared-off boxes designed to keep going when the asphalt runs out and the going gets rutted.
Despite their outward similarities, these three trucks have very different approaches to making the most of their off-road gifts, and the guys at CarWow put them all to the test.
The big contrast here is between the high power, high tech, and high weight of the nearly 600 horsepower G-Class against the diminutive and dirt-simple Suzuki Jimny.
The Wrangler, equipped with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder, rounds out the trio as perhaps the most accessible of the three for American buyers, who can’t get the Jimny over here and for whom the G63 represents a lottery-winnings fantasy item.
I do have some reservations about the criteria for this test.
The format leaves a lot up to driving skill which would seem to favor the more technically advanced and powerful G-class over the manual-equipped Jimny and built-for-volume Jeep, but with a number of challenges, it seems like all three trucks have pros and cons out there in the mud.
Do you have a favorite of the three? One you’d rather take out on the trail? Let us know in the comments.
