President Museveni and Gen. Muhoozi are in a mock political race.

The Black Star News political analyst observation according to Uganda political timeline.

In 1986 when the National Resistance Movement came to power, President Museveni came with 10 points, some of his programs were Fundamental change. Soon it became a slogan for Uganda which was obsessed with political democratization, it was easy for President Museveni to woo them. The first victim was the members of Democratic Party Opposition, the former president General Dr. Paul Kawanga Ssemogerere and all his loyalty to the NRM ruling power.

Later President Museveni who came out with socialist Leninist to the pro Eastern World, promised Ugandans that he would rule only for four years and later open political space under a single party system and called early election which elected Members of Parliament in 1989.

And later, in 1994. The then former Chief Justice, Justice Benjamin Odoke came up with the Uganda Constitutional Review commission that later on elected members of Uganda Conditional Members Delegates Member (DA) the constitutions which were amalgamated and named the 1995 Uganda new constitutions.

Later, in 1996, the first Uganda election was marred by rigging. The 1996 presidential elections, which saw the Movement’s face off with a combination of both multipartite and some of those who had fallen out with the NRM, came 11 years after the coup which saw Obote deposed by the Okello.

Dr. Kawanga Ssemogerere stood under the Inter Party Alliance, which was the only genius opposition party attempted.

How the NRM used Dr. Kizza Besigye to woes and hoodwink members of opposition parties

{However, in 2021 the attempt by Dr. Kizza Besigye who came up with  Reform Agenda slogans, the personal doctor to President,  Bush war Doctor Kizza Besigye only an attempt to create vacuum political space  which was put in limbo by the ruling NRM government  could have yield fruit, if he had agreed with the UPC alliance and DP to use the USA demand that wanted him to forced Museveni, he refused to telling off those wanted him to do so that they have learned from Obote’s regime how the Acholi and Lango had been engaged to disorganized the Obote II regime.}


All the attempts by Dr. Kizza Besigye fourth times in the reign of political attempt to challenge President Museveni status quo was only a game playing, because in 2010 and 2011 when Dr. Prof. Ambassador Olara John Otunnu was about to form single presidential candidate against President Museveni, there were members of opposition the likes of Forum for Democratic Change, JEEMA Party, DP and Conservative Party all were ready to support Dr. Olara Otunnu for single presidential bearer, to gang up against President Museveni Oligarchy regime.

What happened, later, Dr. Kizza Besigye was lured by President Museveni to ditch Dr. Ambassador Olara Otunnu, when one time he was called by his former boss when the National Resistance Army High Command was holding their top meeting in Karamoja, remote area Moroto town, Dr. Kizza Besigye was airlifted to go and attend the NRA high command top organ meeting, when he arrived, he was welcome as one of the top members.

The Black Star News Political pundit has learned that Dr. Kizza was told by his former boss Yoweri Museveni why he was supporting Dr. Otunnu, does he forget so soon that when Dr. Otunnu is calling for accountability in the Luwero triangle, Northern Uganda massacre and Mukura Teso massacre, he is not aware that is part of the war crimes atrocities.

“Forget, what you are advocating for is a candor box, get this money UGX 5 Billion and go and distribute it to members of opposition parties.”

When Dr. Kizza came back from The Karamoja region, his language changed, instead of supporting Dr. Olara Otunnu, he opted to stand alone under the FDC party ticket, and Norbert Mao also supported him to stand for DP party ticket as Presidential aspirant under.

In the end, Dr. Olara Otunnu was frustrated, to the extent that he didn’t even vote for his Uganda People Congress Party.

Again in 2016, President Museveni created yet another shadow Uganda Opposition party bearer John Patrict Amama Mbmazi, under Go Forward party ticket that was a tactful means of denying Dr. Olara Otunnu, and the person used to avoid single party strong opposition was Dr. Kizza Besigye in 2016.

Now Who is Muhoozi?

Gen. Muhoozi is the first son of Gen. Museveni who has been promoted to from Lt. Gen. to General recently, may political thinker in this country believed that his father who is the president of Uganda soon giving him president to replace him.

However, recently Gen. Muhoozi is eyeing his father seat, is moving countrywide campaigning telling Uganda that he is ready to stand come presidential polls in 2026 it seems that he is rebelling to test the popularity of president Museveni, he is being used as a yardstick to measure depth of the political limelight.

At the end, Gen. Muhoozi who wooed members of opposition including Uganda Young populations, especially the Youths, toward the end. He stepped down for President Museveni. with the hope that all his political loyalty which the youth’s population will be under Museveni, since they have hope in him.

Weak Uganda political opposition

However, members of Uganda opposition parties their glitches are silent and in adequate moves to challenges status quo, the opposition parties core value is one of the frameworks that often deployed in dealing with post-conflict societies and reconstruction is transition justice, it considered to be essential if Uganda is to achieve and end to political impunity, gross human rights violation and the reckless plunder of precious natural resources that the country has been witnessing.

Members of Uganda opposition parties are reluctant to calls for the accountability in a stronger voice, in the same demand like what is taking place in Kenya between Raila Odinga Amollo and Kenya president William Ruto, there is a correlation between unchecked impunity, weal intuitions, unaccountable governance and abject impoverishment of Uganda and its peoples, addressing impunity, economic fragility and poor governance that the opposition should have echoed to a critical step in tackling poverty and underdevelopment.

A nut-shell the major short fall without much interrogation, we have judiciary   forms and processes are sine qua non of the struggle to end political impunity, because the cadres of National Resistance Movement ruling organ instead of providing batter jurists, better courts, more vigilant prosecutions which is the hallmark separation of powers, the rule of law. The Uganda Law Society is just moonlighting with the regime, they are mere tools and approaches to legal social engineering.
