Uganda Decides

After 20 years in power, does it make sense for a grown man to promise things like electricity, schools and hospitals? These are things that should have been done in the course of that time. By now, the promises should have changed to something better, like, “If you vote for me, I will make Uganda overtake Malaysia economically..” or, “I shall start another wine factory in Masaka (assuming that there would be at least one already, given the matooke in this part of the country).”

But do we get to be so lucky? No! Instead, we have a president who has refused to see that his dreams have failed to materialise. He is fighting the tide and that can’t be good for the country.

Instead of all the good things we could be getting out of our country, we have to always be on tension. The big guy stubbornly refuses to shift his frame and so there will be those who want to make him see sense. Eventually, it’s the whole African cycle again. Some people want Warren B and his junta to come in, for the sake of change, if not for anything else. Some others who are more concerned with sleeping (“kasita twebaka ku tulo”) are scared shitless and they wont hear of change.

Well, while we let some strong willed politicians control everything; the resources are concentrated in the hands of a few people. Even people who could have helped bring the blessings home are frustrated.

Instead of supporting a brother with an idea to refine coffee and sell it to the world at great prices, government is selling corporations at $1 and diverting the Nile so there is work done but more problems with load shedding.

Sad thing is that these few millionaires with country’s balls in their hands don’t seem to have a clue about what to do with their vast resources. They’ve not read about Bill Gates, I presume.

Welcome back amphibian. Its a pity about Kagu. In my opinion there is little to justify him remaining in power.
My major beef is that he is becoming to meddlesome (he cant let institutions do work) and he doesnot want to listen to anyone who doesnot agree with him.

I see you have a bit of a spamming problem.
