The Uganda Issue
My brothers and sisters, Uganda must move forward.
We should not delay its development any longer.
I am a very strong supporter of King Ronald Muwenda Mutebi and the Kingdom but I am also a very strong supporter of the Democratic Republic of Uganda in which the Kingdom is.
This means that we have to leave political power to the elected leaders of Uganda and cultural power to the Kingdoms and other cultural leaders within Uganda. These leaders know details of everything and if we give them time and a suitable environment they will surely come to a consensus. Distorting this will mean violence because we will react before knowing the bottom line of the situation.
We, the Baganda must know that we live in Uganda with other people of the same rights. When we demand, they also have a right to demand. When we destroy their properties, they may also have a right to do so.
Why can’t we live in harmony, love each other, respect each other and stop abusive language and the feeling that you are the only one!!!
My friends in the Diaspora just imagine you being segregated and even forced to leave where you are now because the natives don’t want you in their countries anymore? Would you welcome that?
Let us stop inciting hatred and confrontation. When one draws the gun what happens?? The innocent suffer and even die.
The question of a regional government is the answer to devolution of power. If the central government surrenders power to regions to manage education, health, road networks, culture, agriculture etc. this is a good beginning and regions can ask for more in the future after proof of efficiency and effective management.
Whatever we aspire to achieve, must be supported by other Ugandans.
We cannot work in Isolation.
Friends, alone we can do so little but together we can do so much.
