    Buganda officials narrate their ordeal in detention

    ROBERT MWANJE & RISDEL KASASIRA

    Kampala

    Buganda’s Deputy Minister of Information, Mr Medard Lubega and Ms Betty Nambooze, the head of Buganda’s team that is campaigning against the proposed land reforms appeared before Nakawa Chief Magistrate Deo Nizeyimana and were released on bail after being charged with sedition.

    The kingdom’s Information and Cabinet Affairs minister, Mr Charles Peter Mayiga, was released on police bond at Jinja Road Police Station the same day. The trio spoke to Saturday Monitor about their arrest and ordeal while in detention.

    Betty Nambooze: I was blocked by a security operatives’ car at Spear Motors Ltd at around 10pm on my way to Mukono. I was travelling with my assistant Edwin Kibuuka, councillor Joseph Kakembo and John Feffeka, a Lukiiko member.

    The abductors immediately smashed Ms Nambooze’s vehicle windscreen pulled her out through the window, dumped her in their vehicle and drove off towards Kololo.

    They told me that I was the coordinator for the Allied Democratic Forces [ADF] and they wanted me to show them the people I deal with. I was then driven to Mubende on Saturday [July19] evening, a day after my arrest and during this time one of my abductors tried to strangle me as we were approaching Nateete junction.

    When he tried to strangle me I screamed and another operative whom I only identified as Esther placed her hands on my mouth to stop me from crying out. I was hit on the neck several times and I’m still suffering great pain in that part of my body. They drove me to Kyenjojo where I stayed until Monday.

    The cell conditions were not good at all. The place is very cold especially at night but somehow some civil police officers helped out by calling to inform my family of whereabouts. On Monday (July 20), I was taken to Lake Albert where the car I was driven in was parked at the edge of a cliff.

    They kept asking me uncoordinated questions about the Kabaka. At one time they wanted to know where the Kabaka gets the money from, where I ‘purchase’ the guns I supply and why I criticise President Museveni. Of course I didn’t have any answers for those questions because none of the allegations they were making was true.

    The next day (July 21) “From Lake Albert, I was driven to Bundibugyo and detained in a room, too small to allow me to stretch my legs. It was torture of the highest degree which no human being should be subjected to in these modern times.

    On Wednesday, (July 21) I was driven all the way from Bundibugyo to Rwenzori and Kagadi forests. My abductors kept asking me to show them the people I coordinate with. I was later dumped at Kyenjonjo where I found Mr Sseggona Lubega ( co-accused). The next day, (July 22) while still at Kyenjojo we were freed and re-arrested.

    The way these people handled us surely they didn’t respect the rule of law let alone the court orders which clearly stated that we had to be released because we had been kept in detention illegally. We were then taken to Fort Portal Police Station and later to Kampala Jinja Road Police Station before we were produced in court at Nakawa last Friday.

    Peter Mayiga: I was arrested from my restaurant, ‘Ekitoobero’ on Nakasero Road at around 11pm [July18]. This was a few hours after seeing off the Kabaka of Buganda who had closed the Buganda Conference at Hotel Africana.

    They arrested and blindfolded me. They surprised me when they said that I was coordinator for a certain rebel group. I was later detained at Kira Police station before being taken to the west [Kyenjojo] on Saturday.

    The next day (July 20) I was taken to Kamwenge and spent the entire day driving around with my captors in a tinted vehicle. On Monday (June21) I was driven to Fort Portal where I spent the whole day in the vehicle.

    I was later taken back to Kamwenge in the night and on Wednesday (July 23) and was taken to Kyenjojo. On Thursday (July 25) I was driven to Bundibugyo after we were re-arrested together with my co-accused, Ms Nambooze and Mr Lubega Sseggona.

    This was however a dramatic scene because none of us expected this apart from Ms Nambooze who had hinted about it. We were freed for less than five minutes at Kyenjojo. No sooner had I hugged my wife than I was rearrested. It was a frightening moment before the eyes of our relatives and friends.

    We were then driven back to Fort Portal Police Station together with Ms Nambooze and Mr Sseggona before our abductors drove us to Kampala.
    I was then dumped at Jinja Road Police Station and later freed on police bond at around midday the following day (Friday). The prisoners were so friendly and I was not harassed in any physical way. The prisoners showed me respect especially when police officials briefed them about me.

    Medard Lubega Ssegona :
    I was slapped by plain clothed security operatives who abducted me on the morning of Friday 18 at William Street. I was walking towards my car when they grabbed and dumped me into a waiting double cabin pickup truck and drove me to Central Police Station.

    When we reached CPS I was told to keeping looking down for almost one hour and by the time they directed me to look up, my captors had left and I could only see policemen around me.

    I was then taken to Room six on the ground floor where I was ordered to hand over my wallet, phone and shoes. It seems my detention order was prepared earlier and at around mid-day, I was locked up in the police cells. I spent the night in police’s ‘Sheraton’ (guest wing) with only a blanket to cover myself.

    On Saturday morning, they allowed my wife and lawyers, Erias Lukwago and Apollo Makubuya to see me. My wife had brought for me food and the lawyers requested for police bond but they said the bond was beyond them.
    The police I was being charged for inciting violence, terrorism and promotion of sectarianism.

    At around 6pm I was handed over to a policewoman who told me to carry my toiletries and I thought I had been set free. But the policewoman instead led me to the CPS parking yard.

    I was then told to get into a waiting police pickup truck and when I asked where I was being taken they told me we were going to Criminal Investigation Department head offices in Kibuli.

    But when we reached Clock Tower instead of going to Kibuli they drove straight to Kibuye. When I inquired were we heading the policemen told we were picking somebody from Natete which we did. We then took the Mityana route and I was told we were traveling to Kasese to meet some people.

    When we reached Kyenjojo the speeding vehicle branched off to a place I later learnt was Kamwenge District. Here I could not ask more questions because death crossed my mind. We reached Kawenge at about 1 am in the night and I was put in a cell with a mattress but I could not sleep because of cold.

    On Sunday at around Mid-day a senior police officer came to my cell and asked whether I knew Allied Democratic Forces rebels. I was told that I had been moving around recruiting rebels. They asked me about places like Kagadi, Kibaale, Bundibugyo, Mpondwe, Kasese and Fort Portal. Among all the places mentioned I had only ever been to only been to Fort Portal and Kasese.

    Buganda will not be intimidated

    [Daniel Muliika]

    DANIEL MULIIKA is a Senior Advisor to Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II. As Katikkiro of Buganda between 2005 and 2007, he was a vocal supporter of Buganda’s demands. He told EDRIS KIGGUNDU why Buganda will not give in, whatever the case.
    As a former Katikkiro of Buganda, what do you read into the recent arrests of Mengo ministers by the central government?
    To understand these arrests we have to go to our Constitution [of 1995] although I do not think it is a good constitution. Government is violating the Constitution. According to the constitution, somebody cannot be guilty before until proved so in the court of law. Secondly, there are methods of arresting people. Somebody should be arrested with human dignity. You serve summons, call me and if you see I am not worth being among the society, you arrest me. It is now the government attacking the people using the very authority, the Police and Army to violate the rights of the people. The arrests have proved that it is not a government of the people. It is a government of a few individuals. Why have they [Mengo ministers] refused their relatives to see them? It is even already being rumoured by those who have experienced the same that in those detention centres, you can be injected with unknown substances.

    What about the nature of some of the charges, such as being linked to armed groups?
    As far as I am concerned, it is the government telling us they are rebels but are you convinced they are rebels?

    May be government established through its intelligence that the ministers have links with armed groups.
    This intelligence is unintelligent. But even if this was true, it means there is something which is wrong about government. Why should people become rebels? May be they (rebels) are being created by government like we have seen before.

    Hasn’t this rebel link injured the reputation of Mengo in the eyes of some people?
    Tarnishing names is part of government’s divide and rule system. They can say Muliika is a rebel such that other people fear to associate with me. But you remember what [Herbert] Itongwa [a rebel leader] said one day when people were being killed in Nateete? That it was part of government organising the attacks. How are we sure now that this [rebel creation] is not part of it? I have not seen any successful case of someone being convicted a rebel in court in Uganda. But if these are rebels and intelligence has come up with good reports, let them be taken to court.

    After this arrests, are we likely to see a timid Buganda, which will fear to express grievances openly?
    You can subject us to fear as individuals but Buganda as an instutions will not be intimidated. Our cause will remain. Because even those people subjecting us to fear will die whether naturally but Buganda will remain. The Israelites were enslaved and subjected to suffering for many years but the cause remained. I do not advise any good leader to tamper with Buganda’s cause.

    But if you heard President Museveni’s speech at Gombe sub-county, Luwero district, where he criticised Mengo for fighting him personally, then you should know that he is also not about to relent. He talked of starting a radio to fight Mengo ‘lies’.
    You should differentiate between President Museveni as the President and Mr Museveni as an individual. I heard the speech but unless something terribly wrong is happening in government, I do not believe there is a President who should call the people wajinga (fools). These were remarks from Mr Museveni. It is high time those advising him especially his party told him that if he has grievances with the people he should use better methods of resolving them.

    Some people would argue that Mengo has in some instances over stepped its line
    I disagree. In fact Mengo has been demanding less. Buganda joined the entire Uganda as a nation on 8th October, 1962 [a day before national Independence]. What we have and what we get, we deserve. Buganda has been mild in demanding what it wants. But because we want harmony and have been soft, other people have instead stepped on us.

    In your view do the arrests indicate that government no longer wants dialogue with Mengo as the case used to be?
    Now I cannot talk on behalf of Mengo but when I was in Mengo I had told Ugandans that it is wrong to over praise the central government. It is supposed to be the custodian of the people’s wills but it is not. The people are in this case are the Acholi, Baganda, Basoga, Banyoro, Banyankore etc. They are supposed to put limits on how the central government should operate and in this situation it should have been the people to question whether the central government is using the power correctly. This [harassment] is going to happen even to other tribes. None of our local governments has attacked the other. It is the central government attacking the local governments. So the solution is for all of us to come together and tell the central government that this is abnormal, we are not going to accept this.

    How is a joint effort going to be achieved when Mengo appears to be isolated from other areas which disagree with its demands?
    Buganda is not isolated but other stakeholders have not realised that central government, because it wants to cling to power, has to divide us by saying Buganda are against you. It’s the people who should know the enemy of Uganda and unless this is corrected we shall have one revolution after another.

    Are you saying the people are not doing enough? What else should they do beyond condemning and criticising government excesses?
    They haven’t [done enough]. Individually people have come out but this has not worked because if I come out alone, government will say, “Muliika is a hardliner.” So I am talking of delegations from Acholi, Buganda, Ankole, Busoga and other areas coming together to put more pressure on government. Right now I can say it is Obote-ism at work. We have a leader who thinks he has got the vision for the whole country. If we think of putting a very effective system of governace in place, such things will not happen.

    What happens to the rest of Buganda’s demands, shall Buganda seek negotiation again?
    Those artificial negotiations should not happen in the first place. Going and pleading in State House does not solve anything.

    But it is the best avenue…
    Read the constitution. Power lies with the people not with State House. Why does government seek power from the people every five years? We should come together as people and solve our problems. Today if you elected me a president, I have no right to take Acholi’s land.

    How do you think this latest episode between Mengo and government is going to end?
    The central government must come back to its own senses not to violate the Constitution. I have never heard anybody convicted of being a rebel.

    You were criticised for being too aggressive as a Katikkiro, do the arrests vindicate your style of leadership that may be we should be hard on this government?
    I was not hard.

    But even President Museveni claimed you were a difficult person to negotiate with, influencing your sacking from Mengo.
    Claiming is one thing and reasoning it out is another. I sent him a letter saying why we had rejected the regional tier system. He did not even answer anything. So who was difficult? To go and say Muliika is hard is an opinion. Kabaka appointed me without me sending him an application letter and he had a right to drop me. He did not tell me that Museveni or any other leader influenced me. I saw that in the press.

    Last word…
    I appeal to government not to be moved by emotions. If these people are rebels, then that should be proved clearly in court. But some people could be implicating them for other reasons.

    Govt asks Mengo to sack critical ministers

    Robert Mwanje
    Kampala

    The Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Mutebi is under pressure from the central government to drop ministers in his kingdom’s cabinet who are considered too critical of President Museveni’s government and its policies, Daily Monitor has learnt.

    “The government is now pressing the Kabaka to restructure his cabinet because it’s uncomfortable with the contentious characters in Mengo,” said a reliable source, preferring to remain anonymous because he does not speak for Buganda. “This was raised during a meeting between Mengo and the central government on Friday as top Mengo officials tried to [get] the jailed ministers released.”

    Mr Charles Peter Mayiga, Mr Medard Lubega and Ms Betty Nambooze are being held by the police in different parts of the country over a string of criminal charges. The trio is accused of promoting sectarianism, promoting war, inciting violence and terrorism.

    Buganda officials feel that the arrests are connected to the officials’ public statements against the proposed changes to the 1998 Land Act. Mr Mayiga is the kingdom’s minister for information and cabinet affairs, while Mr Lubega is his deputy. Ms Nambooze leads the kingdom’s Central Civic Education Committee, appointed by Kabaka Mutebi to fight the central government’s proposed land law reforms through public activities.

    It is not the first time the central government is said to be pushing hard for the dismissal of Buganda officials considered to be problematic. Mr Daniel Muliika had served only 14 months as Buganda premier when he was dismissed in a dramatic reshuffle in 2006.

    During Mr Joseph Ssemwogerere’s reign as kingdom prime minister, several ministers including Ms Joyce Sebugwawo, Mr Ssewava Serubiri, Kamalaka Namwanji and Jolly Lutaaya were also dropped for allegedly promoting a bad relationship between Buganda and the central government, and for having ties with opposition political parties.

    Relations between Buganda and the central government have deteriorated in recent times, with some kingdom officials openly criticising President Museveni for allegedly undermining the Kabakaship. The President, in turn, accuses officials in Mengo of involvement in politics, contrary to the Constitution that bars traditional leaders from engaging in politics.

    In December 2007, President Museveni wrote to Kabaka Mutebi reminding him of the consequences of his institution engaging in political activities, especially those that undermined the mandate of the central government.

    “As soon as we entered into competitive politics in 1996, however, I started seeing people that were associated with the traditional institutions, especially in Buganda, making it their main business to take sides in political competition,” Mr Museveni wrote. “They especially made it their business to oppose the National Resistance Movement government…the Katikiro, Mr Dan Muliika, went to the extent of holding FDC rallies in Bulange and Kasubi tombs.”

    In a swift rejoinder, the kingdom said that while they recognised the NRM’s contribution to the struggle against dictatorship, “we find it regrettable that the significant contributions of the people of Buganda to this struggle are often overlooked and our aspirations always thwarted”.

    The letter, signed by acting Prime Minister Emmanuel Sssendaula, said: “The people of the Kingdom of Buganda are particularly disappointed by the disparaging language and tone of your letter and statements, Mr President. Because Ssaabasajja Kabaka is the embodiment of our cultural identity, any attacks against him or his government strike at the cultural identity and esteem of all Baganda.”

    Asked to comment on the alleged pressure on the Kabaka to sack some of his men, Buganda Premier John Baptist Walusimbi said: “I’m attending another meeting over the same issue but we are trying to solve the problem. We also got in touch with some government officials on Saturday.”

    Buganda’s minister in charge of Kabaka Mutebi’s travels, Mr Kabuuza Mukasa, said no amount of pressure would force the kingdom to drop its demands or even support the proposed land law. “The government should address the problem instead of postponing it” he said.

    Open your eyes Mengo, there is a secret in the Land Bill

    Nicholas Sengoba

    Last week I had a brief lively exchange with Buganda Government Minister Charles Peter Mayiga. At the end of it all we observed that the debate on the controversial Land Amendment Bill LAB 2007 had lately taken to the inner pages of our newspapers. Its replacement being the facade termed the “succession debate” within the NRM and incessant school fires.

    Mayiga was adamant that the land debate would be back soon. Unfortunately, his prophecy has come to pass and left him in trouble. He has been arrested together with Ms Betty Nambooze Bakireke and fellow Mengo Minister Medard Lubega Ssegoona, on possible charges of terrorism.

    This incarcerated lot forms an influential trio from Mengo; the seat of Buganda Kingdom’s government. It’s the most audibly vocal and critical voice of the NRM sponsored Land Bill. It has robustly articulated the view that the Bill is a sinister effort by President Museveni’s government to dispossess Buganda and the Mengo establishment of their land under the guise of “protecting the rights of peasants.”

    The Bill gives ownership rights to squatters as bona fide occupants on “rented” and communal land. Now that the Acholi are weighing in on the side of Buganda, it reminds me of an interesting chat I had with a disbelieving NRM supporter, over lunch, last year. It is my opinion that the NRM as an organisation and its leader President Museveni, espouse a condescending ‘single-bull-in-the-kraal’ attitude. NRM is uncomfortable in situations where it is perceived as being the weaker beneficiary of support, in any relationship.

    Yet the political history of this country shows that whoever seeks to rule Uganda comfortably needs to successfully woo the Baganda for their numbers. Courtship would at some point in time involve granting Buganda special favours and privileges that would be viewed in some circles as “kneeling down.” Any demand from Buganda may similarly be taken as “blackmail!” That would give the NRM a demeanor of “servitude,” yet it restored the monarchy in 1993.

    This, coming after a hiatus of 27 years following the abrogation of the 1962 constitution by the UPC government of Milton Obote (RIP), I told my lunch mate that the Bill to me was a bait being thrown at Buganda to lure it into considering “fighting back.” The Acholi to their great peril in 1987 opted to “defend themselves” after provocation and vengeance from some elements within the “liberating NRA” army led by Museveni.

    The war in northern Uganda has re-arranged the martial status-quo of this country as put in place by the colonial arrangement. Military might which is a great determinant of political control has now shifted from the northern tribes led by the Acholi to the southerners mainly the Banyankole.

    All the six full Generals and most of the high ranking influential officers in the national army are Banyankole. The region of hitherto “proud Luo warriors” has been relegated to a wasteland which will require generations of handouts from a mainly Southern-led government. In this process patronage may be sought in a master-servant understanding.

    For Buganda’s case the age old role of having a say in who leads the country is what is at stake. It is apparent that the support Buganda provided NRM in the famous bush war of 1981-86, constitutes an added asset to Buganda and Mengo and aggravates the liability of the NRM.

    To overturn this, NRM may have to fall back on its greatest strength. It is interred in the realm of public knowledge that Museveni is a gunman of uncontested credentials. His military dexterity is the foundation of his political fortunes.

    Similarly, Museveni, as a great teacher and student of history, knows the significance of land and its centrality in the Kiganda culture. That he is insolent in trying to overhaul this constitutes an attempt to push Buganda and Mengo into an uncomfortable corner.

    Just like his vote to implicitly demean the Kabaka as a “chief.” With full knowledge of the historical resentment between the Baganda and the Luo following Obote’s madness in 1966, Museveni and his minions feel it is the right epoch to inform the Baganda that their kings are actually descendants of the Luo.

    Now that the Kabaka’s ministers, have been imprisoned, it seems like Buganda with its legions of restless, unemployed and impoverished youth, is being led by the devil’s disciple into the temptation of considering blood and iron as the avenue to extricate itself.

    Woe unto the Baganda if they drink from this poisoned chalice! Their “forefathers” the Acholi should be their point of reference. It’s a pity Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga may not be in position to read this today and engage me in another lively debate.
