{UAH} America’s 25 Dying Industries

Community Members.
 
As we were growing up, my father gave all of us (his children) one particular set of instructions for which he would brook no deviation - Go to college and earn a degree.  Indeed, in our family, not going to college was not an option - period!  However, rightly or wrongly, he gave us full latitude to choose our own majors and career paths.
 
But I do not think that this last part is a good idea especially in the world we now live in.  I do not think that any teenage is sufficiently mature to assess and plan this very important aspect of their future on their own.  As such, I have held extensive discussions with my two sons about their future and tried to help them choose paths that will be both emotionally as well as financially fulfilling.  Let me emphasize at this point that I am not trying to make them pursue something of my choosing, but I definitely want them to look at and fully evaluate all options.  That said, in as much as possible, I have tried to steer them away from careers in which I fear they will face financial hardships.  The very last thing I want is to find either of my sons working at a job where he has to ask, "paper or plastic," or "will you have fries with that?"
 
I have also made it clear to them both that they must not feel compelled to stay in whatever career path they first choose in college as circumstances and more awareness might cause them to change their minds and decide to pursue something else entirely.
 
This article below presents a few industries that are facing seriously tough times and for which the future looks quite bleak.  I would highly suggest it to any upcoming high school graduate (and their parents).  These are industries that I would not encourage any young person to consider pursuing.
 
 
Incidentally, I also have deep reservations about much of the retail industry as a profession.  The internet has wrecked havoc on brick and mortar clothing stores and even entire malls. 
 
I would be interest to learn what you folks think are the careers of the future.

{UAH} Literature Writers: compile people's feeling into readable books

Ugandans

There is a convoluted perception of reality in Uganda. What we need to
bring hard facts of life is to get literature writers to get a
collection of writing from common people and how they feel about their
conditions and compile that into readable books.

From that point you will see quite a lot facts emerging from an
agonised but rather an extremely patient population.

{UAH} Edward Mulindwa/Robert Atuhairwe: GOP insiders slam Trump’s desperate, ‘totally insane’ last-minute push for 100-days accomplishments

GOP insiders slam Trump's desperate, 'totally insane' last-minute push for 100-days accomplishments

David Ferguson

29 APR 2017 AT 17:41 ET                   

President Donald Trump's last-minute push to rack up some achievements to show for his first 100 days in office sent some of his closest aides reeling and further alienated the president from leaders within his own party, said Politico on Saturday.

"The last-minute moves have frustrated some of Trump's allies, caused a scramble across his government and proved once again that decisions are made by one man on his whims — and often with an eye to his media coverage," wrote Josh Dawsey, Tara Palmeri and Ben White.

Trump's vague, hastily-written tax plan and his doomed push for a second "Trumpcare" vote this week were both poorly-planned, desperate attempts, insiders say, to have something to boast about in addition to the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Eight days ago, when Trump announced that his tax plan was nearly complete, no one was more surprised than chief economic adviser Gary Cohn.

"Not a single word of a plan was on paper, several administration officials said, and Treasury officials worked all weekend to draft a one-page summary of his principles with a news conference the president demanding the action," Politico reported.

"This was all about doing something in the first 100 days and really it's doing the process backwards," said one unnamed official.

Trump's call for a second healthcare reform vote in the House of Representatives came as a total surprise to Congress. Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) was traveling in Europe when the news broke. Neither he nor the leaders of key Congressional committees had any warning that the White House would be mounting the initiative this week.

"It was totally insane," one senior GOP aide told Politico. "It made no sense. There was no reason to say a vote was happening this week."

Sources in Congress say that former RNC head Reince Priebus was furiously trying to whip up votes earlier in the week on the effort to "repeal and replace" Obamacare, but that House members balked, particularly when the administration put forth the idea of holding the vote on Saturday, a day House members typically have off.

The abruptly announced and then just as abruptly withdrawn decision to leave NAFTA — which came as a complete shock to the nations involved, including officials within Trump's administration — was yet another failed attempt on Trump's part to put some points on the board for his term so far.

"The looming 100-day marker has sent the White House into overdrive this week. Senior administration officials — chief of staff Reince Priebus, son-in-law Jared Kushner, legislative affairs head Marc Short, chief strategist Steve Bannon and Cohn — have held late-night sessions with reporters to sell the 100 days," said Politico. "Trump repeatedly asked aides for ideas with the marker in mind and has demanded plans for the event and lists of his accomplishments to highlight every single day of the week, administration officials said."

It appears to have been largely for naught, as Pres. Trump prepares to hold a campaign-style rally in Harrisburg, PA on Saturday, he will have little to tout aside from the Gorsuch nomination.

One unnamed White House official told Politico, "I can't wait for the 100-day sh*t to be over."

{UAH} MULINDWA.: Trump administration's hardline immigration stance in Supreme Court case could see Melania Trump deported



  1. An 'immaterial' error on a form is enough to see an entire citizenship application refused, according to a Justice Department lawyer

The first lady allegedly earned more than $20,000 (£16,000) in the seven weeks before she acquired legal permission to work in the country AFP/Getty Images

The argument that even an "immaterial" error on official paperwork can justify deportation, put forward by the Trump administration in a recent Supreme Court case, would be sufficient to deport the President's wife, Melania.

The First Lady of the United States reportedly failed to disclose earnings from nearly two months of illegal work in the USA on a visitor's visa, and subsequently failed to mention the offence on immigration documents.

A Serbian woman was recently deported for failing to disclose her husband's history in the military, thus setting a technical precedent for deporting Ms Trump, as Slate reports.

Trump appears to check who Melania votes for

In 1996, Ms Trump—then Knauss—was paid for modelling work undertaken in the United States while travelling on a tourist visa, according to documents obtained by the Associated Press. This violated her terms of entry.

The first lady allegedly earned more than $20,000 (£16,000) in the seven weeks before she acquired legal permission to work.

She went on to apply for a green card in 2001 and became a naturalised US citizen in 2006 without disclosing any past indiscretions.

Despite the recent revelations about her career history, however, she seems unlikely to face deportation.

By contrast, Diva Maslenjak faced summary deportation when it emerged she lied about her husband's service in a Bosnian Serb military unit when securing US citizenship in 2007.

Sevnica: Melania Trump's home town

      She arrived in the United States as a refugee in 1999, fleeing persecution as a Serb living in Bosnia. She claimed her husband had never served in the army, but this was proven to be false and she was deported.

      Under new rules brought in by the Trump administration last month, immigration officials are required to prioritise the removal of any foreign national who has "engaged in fraud or wilful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter or application before a government agency".

      Defending this stance during a Supreme Court case which challenged the ruling against Ms Maslenjak as unconstitutional, Justice Department lawyer Robert Parker suggested a minor 20-year-old offence such as driving at 60

      {UAH} Nothing to sell but Museveni is looking for foreign markets

      Nothing to sell but Museveni is looking for foreign markets

      April 26, 2017 Written by Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda

      Our great brother revolutionary leader Gen Yoweri Museveni and his dear wife Janet Kataaha who is also minister of education and sports were in Qatar last week.

      They were accompanied by, among others, their in-law Sam Kutesa who is Uganda's foreign affairs minister. Kutesa is the father of Maj Gen Muhoozi

      Kainerugaba's wife. Kutesa's late wife Jennifer Kutesa was a cousin to Janet Kataaha. The only non-family member in the delegation was finance minister Matia Kasaija.

      This reminded me of an article titled, "Museveni govt's family tree" that Andrew Mwenda published in 2009. Later, Amina Hersi, of Somali origin and owner of prime properties in Kampala, joined them in Qatar.

      Because these things have happened for a long time, we have learnt how to live with them. I mean family rule which I consider the highest form of corruption.

      Anyway, in Qatar, our rulers met the emir of that tiny but wealth country, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. This year I will make 44 years. This Qatari ruler is eight years younger than me. He was five years when Museveni seized power in 1986. To be exact, he is 36 years old.

      His father Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani handed over power to him in 2013. The father was 61 years old when he handed over power to a 33-year-old. He said in a speech televised by Al Jazeera that Qatar needed more youthful hands.

      I think it takes extra courage for a 73-year-old Museveni and a 68-year-old Kutesa to carry a begging bowl to a 36-year-old emir. There are things our revolutionary leader should be ashamed of doing. You have run (managed) a country for a period of 31 years and you go to beg from a person who was five years old when you became a leader!

      Of course Qatar is a wealthy nation, one that should be visited by anyone in need. What surprised me also is Museveni's failure to know that Qatar is a strong Islamic country. In fact, they are the only Gulf state that supported the Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt and condemned the latter's removal from power.

      One can argue that they supported it because it was a democratically elected government.

      Why, when visiting such as country, don't you go with some Muslim ministers and Muslim leaders? That may appear small, but it can open wide taps. I think Kenyans were not stupid to assign Industry, Trade and Cooperatives cabinet secretary Adan Mohamed to receive a delegation of investors from Saudi Arabia on April 12, 2017.

      This delegation was led by Saudi minister of Commerce and Investment Majed bin Abdullah Al Qasabi. Saudi Arabia allowed Kenya to export 100,000 domestic workers during a meeting. This is the central theme of my article today. Yes, exporting domestic workers is the main theme of this article.

      Why? The emir of Qatar advised Museveni to take advantage of the demand in Qatar of over two million workers. Employing domestic workers is the biggest offer from Gulf States these days.

      Qatar is a country of 0.3 million citizens. The rest 2.3 million residents are foreign workers. Mind you this is a country with GDP of over $300 billion and I think the biggest purchasing power parity per capita in the world, estimated at $140,649. Qatar has 10 per cent of the world's oil reserves and a $335 billion sovereign fund.

      What any wise leader in Uganda or Africa should do is to increase agricultural output and plead with wealthy countries like Qatar to buy your products. I hope you have not forgotten the story of Egypt which offered Uganda a market for yellow bananas. Their cargo aircraft made three rounds and finished all the bogoya (yellow banana) from Uganda. The supply lasted three months.

      I think Stella Nyanzi was harsh to describe our great revolutionary leader as a "pair of buttocks", but looking for a market for what you don't have is real madness.

      That is why we have been reduced to exporters of labourers to these wealthy nations. We are told agriculture grew by 3.2 per cent in 2015/16 but the food and fishing sub-sectors grew by just 1.1 per cent and 1.2 per cent respectively.

      Our target should be to supply food to these desert but wealthy countries. I recently bought a tiny pawpaw in a supermarket in Dubai at 13 dirham, which is about Shs 15,000.

      That story of a Kenyan minister negotiating to export vulnerable Kenyans to Saudi Arabia is very painful. That our leaders cannot feed us, they are now exporting us to work as house helpers. Shame!

      What is the difference between them and the colonial-era slave traders? State House issued a statement to suggest that Museveni had signed memoranda of understanding on defence, agriculture and trade.

      His travel coincided with lifting of a ban on exportation of house helpers by Uganda. Other people are exporting commodities; but for us, we are busy exporting human beings. God save our country.

      {UAH} The famous presidential handshake was a bad deal from the word go

      By Omara Guevara Ogaram

      The famous presidential handshake was a bad deal from the word go. Now, its taking a new twist. Everyone involved in it is caught in a web. Let's begin from the beginning. What will my sister do after the man who gave her a go ahead to deep her hand into the public fund says, it was a mistake? What about the Attorney General? Will our learned friend stand his ground and say, his advise to the regime leader was legally solid? Will he also be humiliated like his former colleague who advised that, the peoples president should have not been nominated in 2006 presidential elections because the regime had remanded him? What about the motor mouthed journalist? Does he still have any credibility to comment on public issues?

      When this dust settles, what recommendations will the Bugweri kid make? Will he have the balls...big balls to recommend beneficiaries of the presidential handshake, also called "Economic Heroes" to refund the money? Will he......will he pick a pen and say, the person who authorized payments and later admitted this was a mistake be impeached? Will Parliament has the balls to impeach the regime leader? Or the famous MPs Will block this report once its presented on the floor of parliament? What will happen to this report?

      As for us, the ordinary fellows, we shall continue to our taxes and watch this hakuna muchezo drama unfolding.

      {UAH} WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH ITESO AND ENGLISH?

      By Omara Guevara Ogaram

      Next time, you take a ride to visit Ofwono's Village Mulanda in Tororo, don't waste your money an interpreter. A majority of the old people including herdsmen speak very fluent English.

      This is what we experienced a few days back. The old folks there, not only expressed themselves eloquently in english but were also able to comprehend and articulate concepts.

      In one meeting, an old man on first sight who looked like a herdsman shocked us. As a member of the village health team, he was to discuss in detail the 90 90 90 new AIDS strategy. He knew new things called mainstreaming, suppression, viral load testing, targeted audiences and non suppression. Similarly, an old woman also a member of the village health team spoke eloquently in English. She told us how people living with HIV can no longer adhere to treatment because of looming famine.

      We were amazed. These were ordinary community people yet very intelligent and knowledgeable. Where do these fellows learn those concepts? How comes they know current events unlike some of the younger generation? We were informed many of them received excellent education during Obote government. As a result, they speak good English and have interest in self continuous education. Obote must be smiling in his grave.

      If we could invest a little more in education, we could be able to have another highly skilled and honest generation by 2062.

      {UAH} DESH KANANURA GETS AWAY WITH MURDER

      By Afunah Dixy.

      Badru Kateregga like any youth, he left his family of five; a wife and four kids and moved to Kampala in search of opportunities to provide for his family.

      He fortunately landed a job as a waiter at one of the bars in town.

      With just 4 days to earning his first salary at the bar, Kateregga was beaten to death. He is said to have been beaten to death after he was found in possession of 30k (about $8) which had been given to him by a client as a token of appreciation.

      Apparently possessing shs30k and above by waiters is illegal at the bar henceforth the reason he was beaten to death as punishment from people who were said to have included his boss.

      His boss immediately flew out of the country; to UK following the incident. He was placed on police's wanted list. He would return to the country three months later and was briefly detained together with his brother and others. They were freed shortly on bail and have been free since then.

      During this time, his wife who couldn't stand the life she was going through abandoned the kids at Kateregga's father home and left to start a new life.

      Kateregga's dad really wanted justice for his deceased son and grand children who he was taking care of. He would sell off all he could to raise transport of 30,000 (the same amount for which his son was killed) from Mbale to Kampala. The case was always pushed to another day and he would find himself sometimes making 3 or 4 such trips in a month.

      Unfortunately, even Kateregga's dad, who was following up the case and also the bread winner for the orphans also succumbed to pressure before even the first hearing of the case.

      The case would stall for years. The judge who was in charge of it would push it to another judge. It would also take another long spell; years before the suspects are brought to court.

      That judge too would quit the case citing pressure. The next judge would start hearing the following year, 5years after the murder. After some of the witnesses had disappeared? Dead?

      Well, the hearing of the case finally kicked off this year. And I hear all of the suspects have been found innocent. Ironically, the same judge says Kateregga's life was ended unlawfully. If none of these is guilty, does this mean the deceased killed himself? #CryTheBelovedCountry

      {UAH} NOTES ON HOW TO KILL ANY UGANDAN YOU WANT

      By Omar Kalinge-Nnyago

      NOTES ON HOW TO KILL ANY UGANDAN YOU WANT

      1. HOW TO KILL ANOTHER PROMINENT UGANDAN. Announce that the police and security forces have been infiltrated by mafia, thus preparing the people for the next assassination. In that way you also play victim too – 'you are infiltrated'! Organise a huge funeral. Cry if you can. When it gets too hot, get some 'suspects' from the stock of suspects in 2 (below). Arrange a suspect parade. Go ahead with your normal business of zeroing on the next victim. Hit again. Repeat.

      2. HOW TO KILL UGANDANS AND GET AWAY WITH IT. Arrest people indiscriminately in 'security operations' and lock them up. (That is called Suspect Stocking). Go ahead and kill any number of Ugandans you want. Vow to arrest the killers. Go to your "stock" and parade the 'killers'. Coach them on what to say in exchange for promise of their eventual freedom. Make sure at least 80% are Muslims with beards. If you don't have enough, make non Muslims t grow beards during the stock fattening period and give them Muslim names. It is looking good already. Muslims are murderers no? Case closed.

      3. HOW TO GET RID OF THE IGP: I pity people who are imploring Mr. B to fire the IGP. KK is implementing his employer's plans. You are lucky that in the course of implementation, Mr. B knows that KK wants to be president (which even a fool can see anyway) - so he will sort him out in good time. And before he does, he will make him commit the most heinous crimes against humanity hoping that he can regain Mr. B's confidence. That's how Mr. B works. Does this sound familiar?

      Have a nice day.

      {UAH} Those were days, when justice was really justice.

      By Omara Guevara Ogaram

      When a retired colonel was accused for allegedly raping a woman, the wheels of justice moved at the speed of light. The big man took over the case. The victim was given maximum protection.

      The head of criminal investigation took over the case personally. The colonel was quickly remanded as the police combed everywhere for evidence. When he appeared in court, the director of public prosecution personally appeared in court to cross examine him.

      Those were days, when justice was really justice.

      Two weeks back, a young girl reported to police how she was sexually assaulted by a powerful man. This time, the wheels of justice seem to have rusted. The police are accusing the girl for not providing sufficient information into the matter. The director of public prosecution as turned into advisor to the victim. ":She has many options to report her case if police is not helpful" he says.

      To date, the accused person has not been arrested. He seems to have not recorded any statements in police. Instead, he runs to the big man and accuses a minister for allegedly soliciting for a bribe. The big man gives him a go ahead to lay a trap for the minister.

      The powerful man walks freely as if sexual assault allegations don't matter. When police is asked why no action has been taken, the say there is no enough evidence to support this case.

      This country is interesting. In other countries, this powerful man would be in police custody. You don't insult, beat or harass a woman without attracting the wrath of the state. A mere fact that a woman reports an assault is enough for police to commence investigation.

      Where are women activists to stand shoulder to shoulder with this helpless young girl? Who will speed up the wheels of justice so that this girl gets justice against the most powerful men of this world. The people who advocate for women empowerment should stand up and support this young girl.

      {UAH} This is one of the SADDEST stories ever told in Hollywood.

      This is one of the SADDEST stories ever told in Hollywood. His name is Sylvestar Stallone. One of the BIGGEST and Most famous American Movie superstars. Back in the day,Stallone was a
      struggling actor in every definition. At some point,he got so broke that he stole his wife's jewellery and sold it. Things got so bad that he even ended up homeless. Yes,he slept at the New York bus station for 3 days. Unable to pay rent or afford food. His lowest point came when he tried to sell his dog at the liquor store to any
      stranger. He didnt have money to feed the dog anymore. He sold it at $25 only. He says he walked away crying.

      Two weeks later,he saw a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and that match gave him the inspiration to write the script for the famous movie,ROCKY. He wrote the
      script for 20 hours! He tried to sell it and got an offer for $125,000 for the script. But he had just ONE REQUEST. He wanted to STAR in
      the movie. He wanted to be the MAIN ACTOR. Rocky himself. But the studio said NO. They wanted a REAL STAR.

      They said he "Looked funny and talked funny". He left with his script. Afew weeks later,the studio offered him $250,000 for the script. He refused. They even offered $350,000. He still refused. They wanted his movie. But NOT him. He said NO. He had to be
      IN THAT MOVIE.

      After a while,the studio agreed,gave him $35,000 for the script and let him star in it! The rest is history! The movie won Best Picture,Best Directing and Best Film Editing at the prestigious
      Oscar Awards. He was even nominated for BEST ACTOR! The Movie ROCKY was even inducted into the American National Film Registry as one of the greatest movies ever!

      And do You know the first thing he bought with the $35,000? THE DOG HE SOLD. Yes,Stallone LOVED HIS DOG SO MUCH that he stood at the liquor store for 3 days waiting for the man he sold
      his dog to. And on the 3rd day,he saw the man coming with the dog. Stallone explained why he sold the dog and begged for the dog back. The man refused. Stallone offered him $100. The
      man refused. He offered him $500. And the guy refused. Yes,he refused even $1000. And,Believe it or Not,Stallone had to pay $15,000 for the same,same dog he sold at $25 only! And he
      finally got his dog back!

      And today,the same Stallone who slept in the streets and sold his dog JUST BECAUSE he couldnt even feed it anymore,is one of the GREATEST Movie Stars who ever walked the Earth!

      Being broke is BAD. Really BAD. Have You ever had a dream? A wonderful dream? But You are too broke to implement it? Too tiny to do it? Too small to accomplish it? Damn! I've been there too many times!

      Life is tough. Opportunities will pass you by,just because you are a
      NOBODY. People will want your products but NOT YOU. Its a tough
      world. If you aint already famous,or rich or "connected",Youwill find it rough.
      Doors will be shut on You. People will steal your glory and crash your hopes.You will push and push. And yet NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.

      And then your hopes will be crashed.You will be broke. Damn broke. You will do odd jobs for survival. You will be unable to feed yourself. And Yes,you may end up sleeping in the streets.
      It happens. Yes,it does.

      BUT NEVER LET THEM CRUSH THAT DREAM. Whatever happens to
      You,Keep Dreaming. Even when they crush your hopes,Keep Dreaming. Even when they turn you away,Keep Dreaming.
      Even when they shut you down,Keep Dreaming.

      NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EXCEPT YOURSELF! People will judge You by HOW you look. And by WHAT You have.
      But please,Fight on! Fight for Your place in history. Fight for your glory. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

      Even if it means selling all your clothes and sleeping with the dogs,ITS OKAY! But AS LONG AS YOU ARE STILL ALIVE,Your STORY IS NOT OVER. TRUST ME.

      Keep Up the Fight. Keep your dreams and hope alive.

      {UAH} JOURNALIST WRITES TO M7 ABOUT KAYIHURA

      Your Excellency, please accept my apology in advance to reach you through this means of communication. As the fountain of honor, I am well aware of competing national demands, its' not possible to gain private access to you, hence the reference as above.

      I'm a writer; reporter aged 45 years, to this end, the CEO at the Investigator Publications (U) Limited running an online newspaper – www.theinvestigatornews.com, my meaningful and gainful living. Over the last two decades, I have practiced journalism without any glitches. Hence my concern about recent episodes on the Late Wilberforce Wamala and AIGP A.F Kaweesi, for unclear and unknown reasons I started encountering serious life threats from police operatives and the Inspector General of Police, Gen. Edward Kale Kayihura.

      The Genesis

      Your Excellency, specifically, from March 20th 2017, I started receiving terrifying telephone calls and subtle messages through parties unknown to me concerned security and police sources. The aggregate were warnings to me to watch my back because of the salient information I share in the court of public opinion had clues on who committed the brutal offence. More ominous is that an action of last resort to stop me may be at best a kidnap, and worse to torture me into a vegetated state. As a loyal citizen, I am simply following Your Excellency's open outcry of criminal infiltration in police. To this end our editorial team resolved to run supportive investigative stories, pointing out the rot and where possible, name and shame the culprits, which would be helpful to IGP to 'clean his house.'

      Those I have privately shared with the above predicaments advised that I appeal to the court of public opinion. I followed this hunch and made the alarm on social media platforms. I admit here that the investigator runs the series code-named 'CIP Records' (Crime Infiltrated Police Records). Along the way, the newspaper published a laundry-list of Gen. Kayihura's most trusted operatives, namely SSP Nickson Karuhanga Agasirwe and SPC Hajji Abdu Ssemuju aka Minaana's criminal records. Both of them have murder files written to their names and they were the very people at the center of Kaweesi's murder investigations. Further to this was a report that the duo had arrested and presented 'fake suspects,' who, suggestively, had no idea of the location of the scene of crime in Kulambiro. The Advisory Columns too pointed at how best police can clean their image.

      On the evening of April 8th 2017, I had received a telephone call from one Charles Etukuri, a journalist with New Vision and, ostensibly, Gen. Kale Kayihura's social media Platforms' Manager. This caller wanted to meet me. At my prompting he gave me a hint on the meeting agenda as sent by the IGP Gen. Kayihura. The following day, I requested two personal confidants one from Okello House and another from OPM to join me for the evening mchomo to witness a journalist being used to frustrate fellow journalists' professional works. Indeed, Etukuri came and told me the IGP wanted to talk to me over the 'negative' stories about police. I told Etukuri that the IGP should summon me to his office but through his assistants or PRO's office, but not through journalists. He further informed me that even the First Son, Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba was bitter with me. He warned that I stop the series or I will be stopped.

      The following day, the same caller, insisting that we travel to Jinja where, the IGP was to see me. I reiterated that I had no intention of meeting the IGP but in case he wanted to see me, there are channels through which he could use to see me, like officially summon me to his office. The threatening retort was I quote 'If you can't look for the IGP, he will look for you and you wouldn't like the idea'. Noticeably, I started seeing trailers on my foot prints including friendly insider telephone calls from police and security operatives as well as crime journalists, advising me to switch places. The civil but yet more overt action is the recently secured interim court order from Court by the IGP stopping me from publishing stories about Kaweesi murder investigations.

      On Saturday 22nd 2017, I received two calls. One was advising me to stay indoors and another warned me to momentarily leave the city. Both callers told me that Col. Atwoki Ndahura of Crime Intelligence had succumbed to the IGP's pressure to have me kidnapped. Tired and angry, I called Col. Ndahura who only picked on the third attempt. I asked him where they wanted me to report instead of tracking me with the use of arguably crime-laced operatives. He first denied knowledge of the development but I insisted with facts. He opened up and said I had become a stress to the IGP and the police work in general. I told him that the methods they were using only fitted the times of the fallen regime of Idi Amin. He promised to talk to the General whom he described as 'very bitter and stressed.'

      That same day, I had an appointment with a musician, Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleon at Lubowa-based Quality Supermarket. While there, a detective attached to Crime Intelligence came first and took position at a nearby restaurant. Shortly afterwards, Chameleon came with his kids and a young man whom I know very well, is a police informer. Joseph explained how he wanted the Investigator to help him ran campaigns of his forthcoming concert. To say the least, I was shocked that he had called me over such a minor issue. He knows who handles that docket and they are friends. Even more shocking, was the telephone call I received from a friend from security circles, he advised me to escape, "you are just 10 minutes away from being kidnapped." I confronted Jose Chameleon but he denied having any knowledge of the same. On my insistence, a fidgety and nervous Joseph evacuated me in his car. When we reached Entebbe Road, there was heavy traffic. At the end of my tethers, I jumped ship onto a boda-boda which helped me to flee towards the direction of Entebbe.

      At Kajjansi, I called my friend who drove me up to Busega through the under-construction Entebbe Express Highway. My security situation was deteriorating under my very eyes. I had earlier talked to CMI Boss Col. Abel Kanduho who openly told me he couldn't help. I had also reached out unsuccessfully to Security Minister Gen. Henry Tumukunde's assistants, and Your Excellency's personnel. Efforts to reach Gen. Salim Saleh were also futile. I was advised that either I seek your attention and or think of leaving the country. I know of many Journalists who have left Uganda because of similar life threats but I am not about to jump ship.

      Why Gen. Kayihura?

      After the above Lubowa incident, I was embittered and, around midnight in frustration, I called Col. Ndahura again. He listened to me for about 40 minutes as I lamented my ordeal. He sounded touched. "Ndugu Stanley, hariwo ekintu kigumire munonga. I'm also concerned." Col Ndahura promised to call me the following day. On Monday, a one Wilson Nkeiza (whom my sources tell me is Moses Tandeka) called me. He asked to meet me on Col. Ndahura's advice. That afternoon, we met at a restaurant near Bank of Africa in Ntinda. He asked what I wanted from Gen. Kayihura and I told him, my freedom is what I wanted.

      Kayihura
      I am now a fugitive in my own home and country at the behest of the IGP, supposedly, a public protector. Adding, I may know of his personal deeds but the newspaper is not concerned and or interested in sharing those in the court of public opinion. Furthermore, it is a duty or a calling to help and support the fountain of honour on this matter of cleaning the rot within the police, as a public protector. Moreover, the newspaper has illuminated scenarios where, the police failed in the investigations. Col Ndahura and Nkeiza, concurred, arguably, that I had no problem but the General. They promised to plead and 'calm' him down.

      On Tuesday 25th April 2017, Wilson Nkeiza called me and asked me to call Col. Ndahura. The Colonel told me that he was happy for me – Reason? "I have been withdrawn. I'm no longer on your back. I have orders from my boss to let you be… (Further confirming the General's hand in all this)" He however said, this will only come to pass if I stopped writing and pulled down all the stories from the website. In brief, I am under command to buy back my freedom with a staggering cheque worth my two-decade long professional work, the main source of income for my family and fifteen members of staff as well as my legacy!

      Your Excellency, for the last decade and half, I have been practicing and horning this skill as a Crime Investigative Journalist and can proudly add, I have never attracted a court case, simply because I only report about facts. It is surprising that other media houses and writers have made similar reports but are free of any intimidation. As I write this, several people who are suspected to be my 'informers' from security circles are facing the same threats yet the IGP Gen. Kayihura has not stated for any of our stories to be false. He simply wants us stop writing about the rot in the police, a matter of public interest, a public service. I will not flee my country, for I have no crime committed. I can't leave my country because I dared to expose the truth.

      The purpose of this letter to the Fountain of Honour, and Court of Last Resort is a humble request to protect my practice and my profession within the laws of the country. I yearn to enjoy my gainful and meaningful living, more so in conjunction with Team of Investigators in our profession; and to this end to retain a modicum of credibility in the court of public opinion. If I may end here, I said earlier Your Excellency; I will not flee my country. That means without your positive response, the unintended consequences of the IGP course is being left to the mercy of my oppressor(s), my children and wider family will be the worse without me.''
