Col. Ochola Walter, you are a disgrace to the civilised races and the people you represent

25 Jan

By Stephen Twinoburyo

Can you believe Col. Ochola Walter used the following statements last night against two women he disagreed with in a debate on on facebook? This man, according to his profile is employed by the president’s office. He is the Resident District Commissioner (RDC) for Gulu and is a representative of the NRM in Acholi. He is now contesting for Gulu District LC 5 Chairman position on the NRM ticket. That this man is the one who on Radion Uganda in 1985 announced General Tito Okello Lutwa’s takeover of government after the overthrow of Milton Obote says a lot about that government. Some opposition parties in northern Uganda have accused him of arming thugs to terrorise them – the kind of language and mental intent displayed below makes one wonder whether this is not true. I have been dismayed that this man holds high positions in this government, my dismay based on the various remarks he has made on facebook over time and the language he has been using.

 

From the Col Ochola Walter:

 
 
 
 
 

Gulu RDC and LC 5 Chairman candidate

 

 

 

Col Ochora Walter: XXXX look for a husband and give him that advise. you know you will never represent the Acholis.

Col Ochora Walter: YYYY we dont have male prostitudes in my community unless you want to share with me how much you charge for a round of KASHABALI.

Stephen Twinoburyo: Sincerely speaking I think Nathan you should help us and remove this piece of filthy misfit from this debate otherwise the rest of us can’t share a stage with such rottenness.

Ochola, if you don’t apologise to the two ladies or Nathan does not block you, some of us cannot share a stage with you. I don’t remember when I last heard such language and I cannot imagine any environment, leave alone facebook, when I would meet it. I don’t want those kinds of words in my inbox.

Those who come from Acholi, please tell the people of Acholi the kind of person Col Ochola is. I can’t believe that this man can lead or represent even two people and worse still that the NRM would have him on their ticket. What crime would… the people of Acholi have committed to deserve such a man if he were to be thrust upon them? The words coming out of his mouth tell a lot about the kind of person he is. No wonder the previous regimes he represented failed. If this man represents any position in any government, then that government deserves to be disliked. What a pity that there are people who look up to him. I wonder what his family go through if he has got any. If there was a misconception that rotten minds no longer exist in this world, this is a rude wake up

David Wlliam Rukanshonga: @Steve. Imagine someone like him representing you in parliament and taking a decision on your behalf. What a shame. Does this filth have kids who call him dad, coz honestly I feel sorry for them.

 

Ruhweza Patrick: Nathan, I request you delete Ochola from this debate or you delete me. Am sorry but i can’t stand it any more…… I am very comfortable to leave than stand his vulgar language! XXXX, I request you not to respond to Ochola’s posts.

Jennifer Oola: I have been reading through this post and am speechless, I cant find words to use. God help the Ugandan!!!!!

Drew Ddembe: This is one thread I have not been following closely. Quite frankly the involvement of Col Ochora on this forum made it unattractive!

I find it useful to discuss issues with intelligent people however misguided they maybe. Intelligent people… review their positions and listen to new facts and arguments. A discussion with intelligent people is a dynamic event!

From what Col Ochora has written here so far one sees a man if one can call him that who is not worth one’s time engaging in any form of debate! He has so far said nothing except to yell slogans and offensive vulgarisms!

That the people in the NRM consider this man to be one of them instead of shunning someone who is obviously no better than a jumped up street thug who has got to where he is by wielding a gun without a brain behind it is reason for concern.

There were three types of followers in the book “Animal Farm”. The sheep and the faithful “simple” and hard working horses and the dogs -nasty pieces of work with small brains whose roles was to attack anyone who questioned the way the animals revolution was being run by the pigs! Col Ochora is a dog! He is no better than a pimped up dog in a suit. I normally reserve the term “paesants in suits” for our leaders but calling Col Ochora a paesant in a suit is an insult to paesants in Uganda! This piece of garbage cannot possibly be one of them -people who for the most part are respectful and do not use the kind of gutter language he choses to use! This idiot reminds me of Obote’s soldiers and the way they behaved and is a reminder we still have such idiots among us! Most of our paesants would be appalled at the use of such language!

My grandmother always told me that it was very important who you associated with! that you could tell ones character by the type of people he or she associated with! Museveni choses to associate with Col Ochora. He should be judged for that! We have got to assume that they have got something in common else they wouldn’t be together!

We too have to make the same choice -to associate with or to shun this man who choses to disrespect women on this forum whose only crime is to disagree with him!

The way we treat our women, says a lot about who we are as a society! I would like to believe that the way that Col. Ochora addresses women is not how “gallant” Acholi men treat their women or the way that we as Ugandan men treat our women.

I would therefore like to add my voice to all those who have called on Nathan to block Col Ochora from this forum to please do the needful! We should chose who we can and cannot associate with and i for one do not see the need to share space even on FB with this idiot! I also request everyone to flag Col Ochora’s comments and report them to FB as offensive!

I would like to add that having read both Ms Lalobo’s and Ms Ssuuna’s contributions to this forum, I have gained immense respect for their intellect abd debating skills and wonder why we leave idiots like Ochora to “lead’ our nation!

To Ms Lalobo, I think you would do the people of Gulu a great favour if you were to chose to join politics and remove this piece of garbage from our politics! This is one thread I have not been following closely. Quite frankly the involvement of Col Ochora on this forum made it unattractive!

I normally reserve the term “paesants in suits” for our leaders but calling Col Ochora a peasant in a suit is an insult to peasants in Uganda! This piece of garbage cannot possibly be one of them -people who for the most part are respectful and do not use the kind of gutter language he choses to use! This idiot reminds me of Obote’s soldiers and the way they behaved and is a reminder we still have such idiots among us! Most of our peasants would be appalled at the use of such language!

Godfrey Kahangi: Ochola. You are a dirty old man. This forum has witnessed many forms of debate and attracted a wide array of discussants, with a myriad of political views, but this is the first time we’ve ever encountered such raw vulgarism as a format of discourse.

You’re a disgrace! Your derogatory remarks to our esteemed and revered discussants, XXXX and YYYY, reveal not only a dirty mind but also a propensity to violence towards ladies. We acknowledge that your comments are not representative of either the Acholi men or males generally. They are a product of your private warped mindset.

Like all before me, I add my voice in condemnation and demand, NOT an apology, as it would not be sincere, but demand that this forum is rid of your filth by blocking you and removing your sorry existence from this discussion. Once again, you are a disgrace!

 

Muhiire Nathan: Col. Walter Ochora, you have really tested my patience. PleaseI I beg you to make an apology in the interest of Acholi community, NRM your family and God. I cannot believe this oh my God! I had not seen other comments! What careless remarks from a candidate who is compaigning to lead a traumatised district?

YYYY: Nathan since I am currently not seeking for any elected office in Acholi or elsewhere for that matter the ‘cynical talk’ from the Colonel serves no purpose.

Just so that I can make myself clear, there is absolutely nothing vulgar or …wrong with looking for a spouse. Most living creatures do that and it is normal and highly encouraged as relationships form the basis of families and hence the entire society. There is no culture in Uganda that practices polyandry. Maybe Ochora wants me to become either a Maasai from Kenya or Tanzania or better still from Asia -Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka or Mongolia where some communities practice polyandry. That I am afraid is not an achievable desire.

Maria Bisaso: Col Walter Ochola how can you write such rubbish? i’m a mother of five grown up women who are on facebook and following these forums. Are you a parent? why should NRM field such uncivilised characters of your behaviours?. Ee can disagree politically but it doesn’t require one to use such language in an international discussion. you are the biggest embarrassment. Nathan, delete Ochora’s comments they are not fit to be on anyone’s wall. i will not miss to contribute where such rubbish has been posted. how will my children, relatives & associates view my association with such characters.

David William Rukanshonga: Maria. I’m a man but was so embarrassed to read the trash he wrote. Glad to see NRM has some sensible women like you.

Stephen Twinoburyo: Maria, thanks. Much as we may disagree, there is a level of respect that must be maintained. For instance Maria we have disagreed a number of times but I still respect you and would sit and have a cup of coffee with you. But how can a per…son sit with a man like Ochola? He is a disgrace to all the people he represents.

Those who come from Acholi, please let the people know what kind of man Col Ochola is. He is not fit to represent any human being. He deserves to be sent to obscurity and never appear on any public forum that represents Uganda or her people.

Drew Ddembe: In any other country, Col Ochora would have been asked to resign immediately!In the early years of the NRM, Otafiire, probably the most crude member of the NRM high command crude as in lacking polish not gutter crude like Ochora, drew a pistol after being insulted by the wife of Kuteesa another NRM minister.

Otafiire was required to resign and did so immediately! Everyone expected that thats the way things should be!

In later years Otafiire was reinstated which is not necessarily a problem. The problem is that even after he ended up in court for refusing to pay child support, he still stayed put as an NRM politician!

Could this be a sign of the changes in character and the values of the NRM? Opondo got caught up in the “underweargate scandal” soon after shooting and killing a man and didn’t get so much as an inquest. Mukula and Muhwezi remain big men within the NRM. An NRM politician was convicted of using the diplomatic bag to carry drugs to Europe while another convicted and jailed in Europe for his role in the CHOGM money scandals remained an employee of the government! Fox Odoi bought and sold land strategically placed along the route of the northern bypass and claimed ‘compensation’ for what could have only been the result of insider knowledge then later shot a man during elections! Nasser Ssebagala was “rewarded” for a job well done in presiding over the most corrupt and incompetent Kampala City Council government with a state house and a position “behind” President Museveni’s behind while Col Ochora, he with the foul mouth remains the NRM’s strong man and power broker in the north specifically Gulu!!

Of course we know that Col Ochora is not going to resign and the NRM will continue having him on their cards as their man in the north!

Nathan, in my opinion, you should block Ochora.

The only useful purpose he serves at present is to embarrass the NRM, otherwise he is no use to the debate.

Quite frankly the message needs to go out that we shouldn’t be tolerating that kind of …politician who is no more than a street thug!

In any other society, that kind of comment to women by a politician calls for immediate resignation and his handlers have got to be seen to distance themselves from him else suffer the wrath of women and all right thinking people at the polls!

Only in a country where women are disrespected can he be allowed to get away with his comments!

Joanita Annete Kategaya: Col Ochola, shame on you; how dare you stoop this low??you are the “rotten tomatoes” in the NRM party..this is despicable and really pity your children and wife!!!political maturity and tolerance are attributes not synonymous with you.. Nathan kindly bloke the Ochola’s of this world.The only useful purpose he has is to bring shame and degradation to the NRM party… We should spread the word on this.. I am really embarrassed and saddened!!!

Nathan, it is not enough for Col. Ochola to apologise.. I believe there is too much water that has gone under the bridge!!! Time always tells the story and indeed Ocola’s true colors are out. Enough is enough.. You know the likes of Ochola think that by being abusive and derogatory, those are signs that they are “NRM Diehards”. This is simply being more Catholic than the Pope.. Also crying more than the bereaved…Nathan, delete/block this loose cannon from our midst. We have been having mature discussions and disagreeing amicably and in a decent manner!!!

Mercy Akongo: I suggest we come up with a petition asking the president to order Col.Ochora to step down. Nathan save a copy of his posts before deleting the comments. We have to get the media involved all around East Africa. Nathan please save a copy of this and let’s draft a petition and send it across networks for people to read and sign. We can start by presenting a copy to the president and request him to act or else, we must involve the public (Ugandans)

 

These are previous statements, among many others, made by Col Ochola:

Col Ochora Walter There is no war in the North.I know you wish it never ended because of your distance from the North. Your human waste will be given a decent burrial when the moment of truth arrives.  January 21 at 9:57pm

Col Ochora Walter Read the Local Government Act and know the responsibility of various stakeholders instead of fucking around ignorantly. January 23 at 9:48am

Col Ochora Walter The facebook rats who waste their time on me should know that i am allergic to fools and the people who know me so well bare me witness. The Acholis know my values and the way i treat serious people not just internet fanatics. January 24 at 11:03am

    Col Ochola is not alone. In NRM party there are a lot of rottenness. On one of the forums where Steve and i are currently participating, one David Rwamutemba wrote about how the ambassador of Uganda in South Africa is rumpen, a drunkard, a womanizer who have brocken many people’s families, turned the embassy house into a hotel and so on and so forth. I was astonished to read that kind posting by an NRM supporter against an appointed diplomat. This alone was enough to supplemenmt on my perception of the NRM dihards. They dont mind what they say where, when and to whom. They are like their leader M7 who has now openly supported Ivory Coast Incumbent Leader Gbagbo, who lost an election and refused to handover power. This explains the tsunami is destined for.

    I haven’t been following this thread of discussion, but was alarmed when I opened and read the words of the so called Col Ochora. It is despicable that we have such men as opinion leaders in the country. By the way the fellow was in the Obote II and Lutwa’s regime? No wonder! He is simply crude as the whole bunch of them that terrorised Ugandans more so people in Luwero as though the nation belonged only to”them”. I pity those he will represent if elected-what good can such do. A river can’t flow with both fresh and stinking water. Can someone do us a favour and get one of the media houses to publish his words for the whole nation to read so that people might get to know him for what he is.You give a bad name to the Acholi people Ochora.

    Well, you can see what kind of people that are aspiring for high positions in our society. How can such a person seek an elective office? How can even people trust him with leadership? What is the thinking of the party that fielded him as their falg bearer. What about the morals of the person that appointed him as a Resident District Commisioner? I have a lot of questions and wonder why in Africa politicians have to use all sorts of vulgarity ano no one calls them to order. I remember Robert Mugabe calling the opposition candidates Charlatans!!!!

    Walter Ochora is NRM representative in Gulu.We in Gulu are sick to the core, ashame and disgusted that such an idiot with a single digit IQ can be allowed to sit in a Forum, this shows the true intellects of most NRM officials in Gulu. Ochora has done nothing, but embezzled funds meant for rehabiltating Gulu. Visit Gulu and see the building this stooge is erecting, where is Ochora getting all the billions from?

    The great news that has come out today is that Col Ochola has failed in his bid to lead the people of Gulu. The people of Gulu did not deserve this man to stand anywhere and say he represented them. Nature has indeed sided with the people.

    That is the best news that welcomed me today to office. Surely God is with the people of Gulu. The Baganda say omulamu tawoneka, but the people of Gulu have liberated themselves from the likes of Col. Ochora.

    Col. Walter Ochora might have died of obesity, heart attach, diabetes, hypertension, etc… his weight bears the story all. God Rest his soul in peace.

    We may have had our own disagreements in the debates but it was sad to receive this news about him. Condolences to his family and may God rest his soul in eternal peace.

    We had different political opinion but your death came as a shock and i am truly sorry for the loss to your family. may his soul rest in peace.
