Kenya Airways (Government corporation) has just blocked Dr Kizza Besigye from returning back to Uganda .His return coincides with tomorrow’s swearing in ceremony which we have doubted will take place or if it does it will be marred by trouble afterwards.This should not be the case Kenya again betrays Uganda.
With latest updates suggesting that Besigye can return back to Uganda, the Ugandan Government denies claims of ordering Kenya Airways which of course they would love everyone to believe.
How is it that the same Government that blocked Besigye at Entebbe for hours from coming to Kenya is the same one that claims it did not block him from returning to Uganda? Just asking.
How is that Kenya’s Airport officials did not call Besigye a security risk at his arrival but now have called him a security risk at his departure ?
There is a very wrong development of justice in the governments of this world who create crimes that do not exist or what many Americans rightly call pre- crime crime. This is where you are arrested for your thoughts and beliefs or opinions , without committing a crime.
What chaos has Dr. Besigye caused in the Jomo Kenyatta airport ? Has he thrown stones ? Why arrest him by denying him his right to fly back to Uganda ?
Why does the Uganda Police cause fear and panic by issuing details of how Besigye should travel in Kampala as if he has come with armed rebels to take the city ?
Besigye should be arrested when he breaks the law like cause violence or murder .So far murder has been committed by the every people who have said that they are out to bring security !
Secondly, the issue of sovereignty comes in .How can the Ugandan Government order a Kenyan Government Corporation and how can a Kenyan Corporation infringe the right of a Ugandan National.
Welcome to NWO East Africa where Kenya and Uganda and Tanzanian governments are one and the same.
Uganda is going gone gone from the looks of things for Besigye or any other person may not be President because there may be no Uganda to preside over at the end of Museveni’s reign.
Kenya is interfering in Uganda’s affairs and that will not augur well for Kenyans living in Uganda .It is true that Kenya interfered in the elections of Uganda with the Kenyan Executive campaigning for incumbent President Museveni .Now Kenya wants to intervene for whose sake ? Watch and pray we are living in perilous times .
