Kiyingi fans flames as rebels recruit to topple Museveni

Australia based Ugandan cardiologist Dr Aggrey Kiyingi has raised his voice condemning Uganda Special Forces for raiding the country’s parliament and executing rough justice on members in the parliamentary chambers.

“Be strong fellow Ugandans and keep up the pressure on dictator Museveni. Do not allow term limit removal!” said Kiyingi who tried to contest for presidency against President Museveni in 2016 only to be disqualified.

He congratulated Members of Parliament who put up a spirited fight even as a minority.

“The people are with you. I would appeal to the NRM MPs who still want the term limit change to back down.”

Kiyingi has been vocal against the government of President Museveni urging Ugandans to rise and topple the over 30 years NRM regime.

Rebel links

A few days back, reports emerged of a rebel group codenamed Super Coalition Against Despots (SCAD). It is reportedly based both in Uganda and the Diaspora.

Its spokesperson Joel Wakayima in an audio clip that circulated on WhatsApp platforms introduced himself as a Ugandan living in Netherlands.

He says they have resolved to take up arms against President Museveni and his “corrupt” government after which they will drag him to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity.

Wakayima was later linked to Dr Aggrey Kiyingi, who is now based in Sydney. This time round, Kiyingi is not part of the said movement.

He has before been accused of funding rebel movements like the Allied Democratic Force [ADF] and People’s Redemption Army [PRA].

Wakayima believes his movement can crush Museveni who allegedly uses an empty slogan maintaining a strong security apparatus that “doesn’t exist”.

“Museveni’s fake government must fall,” Wakayima reiterated saying Uganda, like Germany’s iron chancellor Otto Von Bismarck believed, can only be liberated through “blood and iron” not parliamentary majorities or speeches.

The movement has since met Ugandans abroad and liaised with non-governmental organisations to remove Museveni from power.
