Demonstration 5 Aug ’23 Western hypocrisy: Do only Ugandan LGBT have human rights?

Announcement of demonstration during Gay Pride, Amsterdam, 5 August

Human Rights are Universal, but not in the eyes of Western countries

For decades Ugandans have pointed out to the United States & Europe how the dictatorship of Yoweri Museveni violates human rights. Still, they decide to continue their financial and military support of the dictatorship.

Ssebyara Majibu is not homosexual. This is the reason why the Western donors of the AMISOM peace force in Somalia took no interest when he was tortured by Ugandan soldiers and the picture below was taken.

As a result of his torture Ssebyara is now impotent. Because he complained about his treatment, his torturers then accused him of theft. A Ugandan judge sentenced him to 20 years in cell.

All of this was no reason for the Dutch and other European governments to stop their support of the rotten Ugandan judicial system. They even financed Kitalya prison, where thousands of opposition members were tortured.

According to the National Unity Platform all humans have the same Human Rights. We object against the double standards that the West are applying.

The Western governments and press fail to understand that Yoweri Museveni is playing with them. Since Uganda has no Rule-of-law, this law is a just a piece of useless paper. Top officials in Ugandan government are homosexual, and none of them will be arrested. Museveni needs to distract the attention from rampant corruption and state violence.

Just this weekend 137 Ugandan soldiers were killed in Somalia in an attack by Al-Shabaab. It’s a reflection of how Uganda is turning into a failed state, that’s not even able to pay it’s own soldiers, while Museveni and his friends put the millions of dollars that the west is sending for AMISOM in their own pockets.

It’s a good decision to stop the financing of the Ugandan dictator, but the moment is wrong and shows a disregard for all human rights.

To highlight the hypocrisy of the west when it comes to Human Rights, the Dutch chapter of the National Unity Platform will be demonstrating during the Gay Parade in Amsterdam of Saturday 5 August 2023.

During the 4 May War Commemoration the Dutch chapter had a similar demonstration to expose the Western hypocrisy. They held up placards with the text “White Money, Black Genocide” showing the children killed in Kasese, Western Uganda in 2016.

On 5 August, we will be carrying the torture pictures of private Ssebyara Majibu, whose torture was financed by the Western donors.

White money, Black genocide

The Dutch community of Ugandans is drawing attention to the financial and military support of the Dutch government for the Ugandan dictatorship. Every year, 70 millions euro’s is sent to general Museveni, who uses that money to rape, torture, abduct and kill Ugandans.

The bodies are the children of Kasese, tied and then killed by Museveni’s security forces as revenge for not voting for him during the 2016 elections.

Our demonstrations have been ignored. Foreign Affairs have listened to us and sent us away. News programs only report on Uganda if LGBT-right are at stake. But don’t the other Ugandans have human rights too?

On 4 May 2023, we will silently draw attention to genocidal regime that is sponsored by the Dutch.

The Dutch audience doesn’t know. Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs falsely informs the Parliament, and nothing is done about it. We will carrying these flyers with more information.

8 February 2023: Demonstration at NIMD Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy

On Wednesday 8 February 2023 the Ugandan opposition will demonstrate at NIMD. Their activities have not contributed to democracy but only strengthened the position of the dictator.

The central problem is the country manager of NIMD, Frank Rusa. In it’s actions and expressions NIMD in Uganda does not appear to be neutral, but rather indirectly supporting the dictatorship

  1. Just after the violent and rigged elections of January 14th 2021 NIMD put out the following tweet and statement suggesting the violence came from two sides. Over a 100 Ugandans lost their lives.
  1. According to their certification, the dialogue model of NIMD is only applicable in young democracies. But independent parties such as freedom house do not qualify Uganda as a democracy or young democracy, but as a authoritarian regime.
  2. Frank Rusa, the country representative of NIMD was a (former?) active member of NRM. He later became Head of Legal of the Electoral Commission. The Electoral Commission is one of the most loyal institutions to the Museveni dictatorship. Members and personnel of the EC are appointed by Museveni himself.
  3. Thijs Berman at first denied angrily that Rusa was connected to the Electoral Commission, referring to it as ‘accusations’. When screenshots were shared of Rusa’s LinkedIn profile, showing he was Head of Legal of the EC, Thijs Berman changed the story. Rusa had indeed been working for the commission, but was no member of the EC and those appointments are not political. An expert that we spoke to reacted to the distinction that Berman made with laughter.
  4. After a demonstration had taken place at NIMD head quarters, this is what Thijs Berman had to say about NIMD silence of 2 MPs, Ssegirinya and Ssewanyana, being locked up for years by the dictator on bogus charges.

NIMD task is to promote democracy through dialogue, and parliament is the most important place for this. Removing 2 MPs from this dialogue is a mayor democratic intrusion and can be disregarded as a ‘social justice’ issue.

6. NIMD organised a youth symposium where it invited youth leaders of all political parties. However, Francis Zaake, the well-known leader of the Youh of NUP was not invited. Francis Zaake is known as one of the most outspoken critics of the dictatorship. He critized the dictatorship in parliament, which led to him being removed from parliament functions.

7. During this youth symposium there were presentations by Anne Adeka, Doreen Nyanjura & David Lewis Rubongoya. The twitter account of NIMD gave a false impression of what these speakers had said.

We asked Nyanjura if this was a good summary and she told us “Lol, of course it’s not. Missed so many words [..] that’s why I never retweeted it”

We spoke to David Lewis Rubongoya. His reaction: “I never said that”. The argument of age discrimation has been used to change the constitution illegally to keep Museveni in power. Only a Museveni fan could write something like that without feeling the painful memories of the violence used to remove Age Limit from the constituion.

An MP called Betty Nambooze got disabled after being attacked in Parliament by Security Forces that had promised her they would break her back if she opposed the Age Limit reform. NIMD never said anything about this.

8. After clearly indicating we wanted to submit a complaint with NIMD about their country manager Frank Rusa we were referred the very same man to submit that complaint.

Danish support for Museveni’s human rights abuses

Denmark is highly respected when it comes to Human Rights and Democracy. However, the Danish government is supporting the brutal, violent Ugandan dictatorship.

The Danish embassy, the MFA, and development cooperation know about this and choose to remain silent. However, they continue to morally and financially support a dictator responsible for 100.000s of deaths. The reason for this is geopolitical, Uganda hosts 1.5 million refugees and contributes the AMISOM peace project in Somalia. The Ugandan dictator has repeatedly threatened to end this support.

For example, the Danes support the sham organisation “Ugandan Human Rights Committee”. In it’s report this UHRC states “Uganda’s record of respecting human rights is a household reality”. 

This week, the Danish ambassador Signe Winding Albjerg went to the sham UHRC and complimented on their work.

After Ugandans started to confront the ambassador with photos of the many human rights abuses, she closed the comment section on her tweet (see screenshot)

In the past, Denmark has seldomly spoken out to the defense of human rights victims, to mention a few Muhammed Ssegirinya, Alan Ssewanyana, Olivia Lutaaya.

The only exception is  Kakwenza Rukirabashaija. He’s a writer who was severely tortured by the son of the dictator, Muhoozi, because of a tweet. Only after the torture had already ended, the EU came out with a press statement that resulted in his release. He fled to Germany and became my friend. The photo of his back shows the grave torture he endured.


The Danish government should know how corrupt the Ugandan government is, and even the Ugandan embassy right under their nose in Copenhagen. In 2020, an audio leaked of a Zoom call in which the staff of the Ugandan embassy discussed sharing the unspent money to their private accounts.

Refusal of NUP to German Foreign Office Conference

Good morning!

Yesterday we, the Uganda opposition, were refused access to participate in this important conference about Strenghening Democratic Institutions in Africa, organised by the German Foreign Office. We find this strange as 45 million Ugandans are (unfortunately) very experienced with flawed institutions. We have not seen any representatives of other African opposition movements either. This is why our banner says:

Don’t talk ABOUT US without INCLUDING US

With us is also Dr. Nico Schoonderwoerd, EU ambassador for the National Unity Platform, which represent 60% of the Ugandan population. In his book Rigged he provides evidence of the election rigging and excessive violence by dictator Museveni. We have copies with us.

The Ugandan dictator Museveni has been in power for 36 years. He took part in wars in Congo, Rwanda, Sudan which resulted in the deaths of about 7 million Africans. He’s the African Hitler. Thousands of people have disappeared. Hundred thousands of girls have been raped. Writer Kakwenza, who was heavily tortured by the son of dictator Museveni, found exile in Germany, but many Ugandans still suffer and are tortured in safe houses. All of this leads to hardly any critism by the G7 countries. The Ugandan dictator could not stay in power without the financial and military support of them. Is this viewpoint not allowed in this conference?

The reason why we are demonstrating is that we would like to talk to you. So feel free to approach us. If you dont have time now, you can do it later.
