Gay “rights” Vs Ugandan morals


Members- As i write this,i’m nursing emotional injuries me and many other Ugandans sustained upon learnig about the fix our legislators are in over the stalled homosexuality bill.
 
But first,i want to applaud the legislators’ wisdom of inniating such a noble idea by trying to close the loopholes that are in the exising law which the coming generation would use to render the law weak and therfeore spearhead this unnatural,barbaric and generally western habit!
 
The bill, viewed in the Ugandan context should have been passed into law as soon as it became a motion.I bet that if a refferendum was held over the matter,over 99% would approve its signing.
Therefore,the much resistance it has got is purely western(read Europe,Americas)in kind and making and it does alot to narture evil than good in Uganda and Africa in general.
 
Finally i urge our leaders to act naturally and work on more pressing issues and pass the bill into law irrespective of the aid-cuts the west is threatening.

One opposition presidential candidate in 2011


Kampala city on the outskirts

In my view, the way the political system is structured in Uganda, the only way there can be change of leadership at the top is the opposition party to sponsor one presidential candidate. Even then there is no guarantee that such a candidate would win, but there are possibilities. If term limits hadn’t been removed, I don’t think opposition joining hands would be necessary because to a certain extent the level of playing field would have been  evened  out since the incumbent would not be part of the equation. If the new leadership  were to ascend to power then the issue of term limits should be revisited. I also think serious consideration should be given of getting rid of Vice President portfolio  and have a Prime Minister appointed by the President to be in charge of the cabinet.
This could save taxpayers’ money. The American way is too expensive for a poor country like Uganda. If I may add I don’t think Uganda can be said to have  a viable political system until there is a smooth transfer of power from one leader  to another on regular basis. More often than not, violent means has been the most  common way to effect change.
