UGANDAN FANTASTIC ACHIEVEMENT: President Yoweri Museveni ¨sweeps the polls¨ just like Hosni Mubarak and Saddam Hussein did in their final elections!

President Museveni ¨winning again¨ in Uganda
UGANDA:

¨The President is winning with more than 70% of the vote. The city is in virtual lockdown with troops on every street corner. The ruling party is on course to take a 3/4 constitution changing majority in parliament.¨


EGYPT:

¨Remember Egypt. Remember Mubarak. At the last election in Egypt, then President Mubarak swept the polls with 83% of the vote. What a fantastic achievement.¨

IRAQ:

¨Remember the referendums in Saddam's Iraq, when he used to win more than 99.9% of the votes? Wonderful, wasnt it?

With that, I end my political commentary.

Museveni courts cult, witch doctors and religious heads

Thursday, 17 February 2011 04:25

Anglican Archbishop Henry Orombi (big red hat and chair), LGBTI demonizer and ¨religious head¨ -- pictured in yellow hat/gown is Hosni Mubarak´s very recent ¨former¨ supporter, Anglican Archbishop Mouneer Anis of Egypt
¨He removes his grey hat, closes his eyes and bows his head, humbling himself before Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi of the Anglican Church of Uganda, who asks God for the President’s protection ahead of tomorrow’s election and its aftermath.

President Yoweri Museveni is deeply immersed in the prayer and if the Holy Spirit came at that point, he would be the first to be thrown off balance. Yet a few hours earlier, Museveni had sat in Mandela National Stadium Namboole where he prayed with traditional healers who predicted a landslide victory for him.

The spirits have told us you will win by 87%,” Patrick Mudungu, vice president of the Traditional Healers Association, told him.

Sitting in the pavilion surrounded by his security detail, Museveni smiled at the traditional healer who looked like he was about to be possessed by demons. His display of undying love for Museveni was resounded in the stadium as another traditional healer thanked the President for his support to their work.

Two days before that meet, Museveni had sat at Nakivubo Blue in the heart of Kampala, with the faction of the Muslim community headed by Sheikh Zubair Kayongo, seeking their prayers, blessing and support.

Such has been the President’s schedule in the last two weeks, as he winds up his campaigns for a fourth term. He has been meeting religious leaders, firmly aware of the command they have over their flock.

Sham elections eventually do blow up in the faces of the dictators. Perhaps President Museveni might try a strategy where he wins by only a simple majority. Might make it look a little less rigged!

I know, of course there were 8 Presidential candidates--makes me wonder if he hired them all?

There is such National confusion in Uganda--one would think with all the ¨religiousmania¨ the bigshots would know the difference between basic right and wrong.

Sick and sad and dangerous.
