7:35 am
man in his roles philco community i am the editor of african feminism. but as i mentioned uganda is pleading s as an idea a campaign a social media training what does that mean in reality from the last couple of weeks of campaigning in uganda. i think we have to go back a few weeks ago november 18th which was a very dark day in the history of uganda over 50 people were murdered in the city by security forces and we have not. and like the reports of them are going to do. are there were hundreds of people saw the really goes out of that in this not in any talking of just the who was behind this accountability saw definitely sawing that of the lords towards election on generics we've seen.
7:36 am
this not going to be much accountability for this band of. muscle it was a real muscle because there were different people from different backgrounds some people were just walking on the streets and there were some people are just that there are this is in the building soldiers were shooting through the roof the windows so that is really the harsh to. really bring a gun smuggling to this was the largest killing indicates in the compiler a couple of countries so that's where that's what we have to. and you know i know you're always very aware of how the well perceives what is going on in uganda said when the world he is uganda is pleading how would you explain that. when i think that the government has landed itself in a public relations quagmire because it has not been
7:37 am
a properly organized politically to deal with the challenge over and above the wind because it has been almost obscene on social media which is the biggest block from where educated a teacher looked anderson about and i use some of the newest participate in politics and discuss national affairs it was caught by surprise when so many people rose in the right just under. up and out or somebody whining because. institutions for political mobilization or political demobilize issue an undercount the mobilization had to be destroyed because the government side of the ruling party is lacking in a and desist or even a faith in what they're doing most of the activities of police are ended to secure this obvious is and when you have ms and the police and the white is running your
7:38 am
campaign you are likely to get exactly what we we saw in november. we were hoping to have joe sisto own who is the spokesperson for the national unity platform not is a party that is headed up by the wind i'm not sure that we will be out to get him connected to be dot com to the program but if you want to tweet to him bring your tweets into the conversation just connectivity one adores your view that there would be a problem with his life and the dinner are going to get. highly suspicious if you actually. i know babysit my good times let me ask you to come on to the show let me in that we take you back though joking aside to something that's very good as it is our. own december the 1st this is the commune good distrait and this is what happened when we won to peace campaign that i went to have a look to see how things are rabbits.
7:39 am
gas canister this land where we. are explosion. and then a day after these events this is where i'm probably rinds temporarily suspended his campaign. rosedale that scene that exact cheapie call over of a campaign event in uganda right now. what you saw is not out of the ordinary to be our nest what we're seeing or being done to paint has been done it was practiced and perfected on dr cheese a vis the church we know several times that amount of jail or you had to be flown
7:40 am
to nairobi for treatment in the middle. of the pains this has been looked at elsewhere saw in many ways it's not new i think that we have to remember that this kind of violence has been systemic and it's been happening in the country for the last all over the years so i think what concerns us right now is the sheer . disorganization i think that one brings in for their region of preston with 70 in the kind of. people that are drawn in by his campaign kind of building on to the historic think by people like the best in the opposition parties saw this is on our larger scale but it's not new we grew some violence before right even journalists being.
7:41 am
victims of the standard of violence we've seen these images before. no doubt in that so we have we have to. to know that it's a system it is something that works whether for the incumbent to continue to unleash violence on his opponents in creates a very unleveled ground and create an environment of fear. and he's not just about the line because that stance he's cheap between press and stephanie and probably why it's not just about but he when we show you why on here on my laptop from the daily money to me and sustains campaigns of talent seen he's an independent presidential candidate i have mentioned several times now and i'm hunting i think that he's internet connection with the state when i joe. i'm hoping you can see me an immediate very loudly did it take you to hear that something is it's actually very dated but it i'm hoping it's notes it's
7:42 am
a you know so that i miss it gets to the out so yeah that's what i mean do it's a new news folks sponsored of a new key part of the beat of their own was a certain. group what's what's happening in uganda is very disturbing that you have the dictator was being forgotten for years 'd now who does look went in the challenge to he might and i'm not how you construct a vote is just yes hopefully it's still to give every day if i'm not here we have over which i would only send a robot popularly known as will be wife who has said i'm going to challenge you and the people at behind and so there was this violence you know very high handedness you 5 being killers being brutalized. i mean some voice a way that's a support with you and so on but that's a good thing that media too i had my sister was the talk about but that's i think the media because that mediates is exposing them just last week. dictatorial government exports and deported journalists for endemic because they are exposing
7:43 am
that this regime so that wasn't all of this made him drinking whole heating beating up your diamonds and they don't want you to go out there which is very disturbing. i'm just looking at something here when something and i think yeah i don't know sometimes the mistake we make. i think that it would be. it is sufficient for us today automates the problem of uganda as a contest between me. devil my 70 and injure or position plus i don't think that the ugandan political elite have an agreed sit over rules under which political contestation for power. the absence of that shared basic agreement means that oftentimes its side tries to go through or trick or station a means to seek power you see if you look at the behavior to choose the forces it is some of. you you will need to toss out
7:44 am
a lot to get behind it and that the logic is 'd that. the opposition have been saying they have a plan b. elections cannot lead to the power source they have also a plan b. to promote subversion is it your forces when they intervene it's not true that they're necessarily dealing with the small politicians but it's a deposit or subversives who have our agenda butyl actions and they say to themselves so this under under hood really you don't know that they're not a system that is that pretty quickly well a problem so you're going to calibrate it and you know how let's put it in a very scientific and you know how to live and i'm deciding is going to get out as i like you and i'm going to. unreactive sounds exactly what i'm saying it is they don't i don't. know i actually i actually try not heed you both together the internet connection is not strong enough for me to keep us together usually i can do that so i can't today and engine issue time i finish my point. i get invited to
7:45 am
sing to the point. or. so i was saying that the suspicion on the part of the state which is also grounded in reality that the opposition and look just opposition but they're also involved in political subversion lead to the kind of behavior you see with the state and i think that politics in a poor country is where the elite good not cover agreement ok i'm going over to joe in a child xander and i'm going off to pick up this but. if you say the challenge with them was of in the propagandists like under when that is that they try to hide the truth a bit so he say that there's no i wonder when i'll have a constitution in that country it's rules that should be played by you know awkward situation places though i mean somewhere i'm not in our elections and all of that i do say that you know we have being brutalized we are being killed because apparently we might be surprised how do you explain under journalists that are
7:46 am
being beaten up this when we don't know he said i know it's because where they've been some of us if my dear it were that i've been killed in our streets you know that innocent people this is the ugly either who was feeding me i saw the eyes were fastened by the streets and that's what's filming that dream that i'm showed. so that's exciting that there was something before that we want to justify. that you know this is what i've been beaten because that some of us even though these different things innocent lives are being lost under under rule when you as still very much in the media i think if i'm deaf and interested us i just always say joe you know i think. just how tight and then i don't want to go into and his history because we don't have time for that i wouldn't iran's now can you have a new can we not to here we are. in this to play this kind of president i will not be losing i'm losing this. ok arguing with riff except for the home tie for a moment roaster i am wondering in all of this back and forth are we losing what is
7:47 am
a real issues that ugandans care about heading towards the general election we are an online what are the issues that you are looking at which she's just trying to survive and then a more detailed response from talia to me are serious good health care access to education job creation a system that is inclusive that is based on skills not nepotism corruption dictatorship and tyranny so that some a more in-depth agenda there for what tamiya would you hope to get. election issues and surplus issues to address are you seeing politicians addressing is or are they in their manifestos well spent. i think having a manifesto is one thing but making these issues articulated in every day it becomes difficult each have our own opposition politician or in stumping in wearing
7:48 am
. a bullet proof vest to avoid any kills saw somehow because of the violence that unfortunately there are of the cultural issues that we should be talking about for that mission talking about the fact that we have gone to the poverty in the initial is. an economic crisis triggered by. millions of people are losing their jobs they can't afford i mean everything but it's covered when you have bodies on your on your street because they're being short sort of issues take a back seat unfortunately but these are the issues that has talked about what we should be able to speak up about if not centuries that 7 government is the fact that magic of uganda is in different parts of the country don't feel that the government represents their gen win because they don't. people who look like them carrying out on top government bodies so we need to talk about that but also i want
7:49 am
to say under the only person in uganda all of cuts of power so one of us should i mean this president was 70 and really it's just so on so i hope that he can give us just about what i think the point i want to make here is that it is and we're still a single story about uganda because during his demonstrations many of which were there russian i remember that too many young people set up roadblocks bunch of cars in the middle of the road attacked supporters of government to loot to the property there of the government is this sure law and order once you sent it your forces to issue an order is very difficult to avoid mistakes because the looks of these mistakes. that were not it is simple except that they're under a gun. and we're not going to tell us i'm leaving and i live only for god to fight if you think people that you can talk the same policy reaction towards that when people are educated you can't go insult them point blank that is not that is not
7:50 am
a mistake it is up but it is a systemic response to anything that you got and it's about there is think of course there were some people who were attacking other supporters but the reality is that the people that are talking to supporters or is that instead of violence we have must've state sponsored violence which is the root cause of all of this the 2 happening in the streets i answer again changes and just what i'm not against insurgents initially are so many and i'm doing it is not for my own voice but i'm doing it because we have so many people on the ship i'm going to ask you to briefly respond to their questions and nice says and i'm going to see you joe one doesn't have any key policies because he seems to only focus on telling people that the alliance would be better there's no serious platform for him joe briefly respond to nice nice new cheap what you might now. that the us actually looks through of course you know regime program this will keep trying to paint that image
7:51 am
if they have been attentive we have been clearly articulate in the issue of you know we keep raising this feast because it's 5 critical issues that we want to talk about and we've been talking about these things up or to sound like a broken broken record you know but in the void if people see that government that's important for us you're talking about inclusive economic development of the whole our land our natural resources getting to be used and what's been than the situation is the 4th being equal access to quality education and health care all right the other issue being international relations we will have quite a challenge with that of course our national security so. these are part of our money for a store which we have been putting out for those that can't produce in but some clearly could divide us you know what i want to save. i have another question i wanted to shave all right with out what is on you tube i know you know that's an important audience particularly for you if their own social media i know that's an important audience sophia be what changes will miss 70 make if he's reelected in
7:52 am
the city for years that he has been that uganda has not appeared to progress even if both unqualified isn't change needed and i'm not going to say to jump into the head of precedent 70 but that my dear about change needed a study for yes and then and then more coming up for the next year i was you respond to me are still who are on the list and anybody who wants a change in the president of uganda i am number one nobody believes in you and that somebody has to see that in a change. in a change is there another is going to change that is when the 2nd thing clearly is that it's not true that you're going to if you like the news right now they have put it at least in the face best they can before me economies in the world and uganda is number 2 in the one at the number 5 you know what number 2 enough record uganda has sustained an impressive group of economy to grow over the last that if i
7:53 am
look at my the troops it has been 11 split this group you couldn't go where you are going to play just this record in terms of g.d.p. growth back up and down the road of expansion of welfare is a matter of a base that has been you're going to start getting the opposition wants to deny this reality they were doing just don't understand you could explore a split in the they don't understand economics there is a great ad that i'm getting there has been abandoned you have to be open as good as . your guesses things i mean i'm clueless about remember what i had going for it i'm going to come i'm going to like it or not if i'm not i'm yours you know it was already out and it was but i don't know not to mention so sad talk. transformation just by looking at him because it's about who. is it more 70 of his cronies is there any 4 around the time small tight private sector that serves the president and his family and his glands well it's growing or it's being left behind unfortunately this group up and. going to do that also.
7:54 am
inequality many a gun that's what every you gonna that's out of over the top for about what we know about that is also a record against all our clothes i want everything you have you heard earlier all it wants another is what one class it actually feels about it what it was called tide a moment because i literally cannot hear you i'm going to take a course because we're almost at the end of the show but i want to bring in supreme and safina we've been talking about silence from talk about political manifestos be talk about different campaigns but safina has one idea for how you gander moves forward and this is what she told us earlier have a listen millie similar to that as she runs this insurance. industry. this is how. for their.
7:55 am
favor there may turn out to vote. in the region or send the moderate arabs. for the 3 being army lisinopril the other yes this year. of our 1000000 engineers returning. from richest most. so head of the show we did a very unscientific stream co and we said you can decide 2021 who do you think will win the 2021 presidential election this is unscientific present you erema 70 gets 30 percent but we wind get 69 percent in every unscientific poll and any comments uganda will decide to vote for but we why but was 70 we just when know it's a cynic's in the stream online community classy seriously i mean you very seriously asking this question talk about something else as cedric this is not
7:56 am
a question to ask a 70 were never let go of his presidency you can look underneath that weight that's on a.j. stream to see more of those responses let me go back to roosevelt rosabel this idea about the can there be a free and fair election on january the food t.v. with the person gets the most votes actually become president is that possible in uganda today. from west and it is almost in course of all because we have into the course for the last 5 times i have fought in most of the elections since i turned 18 and these elections some of them the courts of law have stayed though i don't see and we have seen the last exon 26 in the military was deployed in that position media was on the house arrest to talk to control any kind of response to the election so we have known for a long time that we don't have an impartial and actual commission and the process
7:57 am
is not free and fair from the campaigning to write to the county so i'm wondering actually ask someone like joel what pushes you every day you know i think right now homeless i will write it so immediately i went to share. writing a lot of. that stuff we're going to read it so i just thought it was very much you know what are the chances i can say you have to answer in 30 seconds can you do that very important for me to say this or not to say the government's not understand economics i'm thinking are you kidding me there were lots of economics when they don't have pocket money in their pockets when the i mean program the general said about how about but maybe how i'm going to work only with family not just me and now an easy exit out there right around everybody i remain friends and here is my last article you know the conversation hasn't ended yet how i behaved to my laptop let me show you that we will take a groundswell to instagram live at 2030000 and t. to continue the conversation thanks about uniquely i see mixed.
