Some questions to Besigye before Buganda endorses him


who is Besigye? The man that opposed restoration of kingdoms during army council in Gulu in 1992? The man who refused to stand in respect of Ekitiibwa kya Buganda while being played at Kiboga? The man who detained Abdul Nadduli for demanding restoration of kabakaship? “Eddiba ly’ennyama terikuliisa kaamuje.”

Have you forgotten that he was the one who led a government delegation to Bilerus? He was Chief (not mere director) of Chieftainancy (not directorate) of Logistics and Engenneering in UPDF. His companion had imported one side shoes under under sized uniforms form China. They now call themselves Mr.. and Mrs. Clean. Ugandans are not gullible.From Bilerus, we got junk helicopters. Besigye led the government delegation.

  1. Yoga Adhola,

    Among these tensions one in particular has decisively shaped the country’s politics, the tension between the Baganda and other peoples of Uganda. Politically, the tension takes the form of the Buganda question, the dimensions and ramifications of which are many but the core of which can simply be stated: what place should Buganda, its ruler the kabaka, and its people the Baganda occupy in the emerging national society? It has not been an easy question for Ugandans to answer. To many Baganda, they are an elite people, endowed with a superior culture, superior economic wealth, and superior political traditions. To those among them who have thought about the matter at all, it was until fairly recently almost inconceivable that they should not provide the leadership of the new state. To many non-Baganda such claims have appeared pretentious, the wealth not wholly deserved, and the traditions a liability. While valuing much that Buganda had attained, particularly the relative well-being of its people and its political success during the colonial period, the others have been no more prepared to put up with Buganda overrule than with British overrule.

    “The Buganda question and its organizing role in Uganda politics form the principal subject matter of this essay. It is for such a young country, an old problem, for its roots lie in actions taken at the very beginning of the colonial period. Only in the 1950s, however, when the nationalist movement was getting underway and Ugandans began to concern themselves with how the new state should be organized, did it come sharply into focus. But at that point it rapidly devolved into the overriding problem for the country, and it retained that position throughout both the period immediately proceeding independence and the first four years of nationhood, from 1962 to 1966, the period this essay is mainly concerned.” (Hopkins, Terence K. 1967: 251).

  2. Museveni will go down in the books of history as the giant that finished off Buganda, legally, peacefully, and with the support of the Baganda themselves through the MP’s from Buganda. What Obote started in 1966 Museveni has brought to conclusion.

    Another thing Museveni is helping Uganda with is to eventually erase Buganda completely from the map of Uganda. That feat will come too. Maybe not this year or the next. But eventually, even if it be 30 years. I think it’s worth the wait. The Baganda were too elated during the time of the British. It will be good riddance.

    Those who doubt the prospect of Buganda disappearing from the map of Uganda should consider the fact that the City of Kampala is not in Buganda. The motion was supported by the Baganda themselves through the Buganda MP’s. Remember also that the power to extend the boundaries of Kampala lies with the Minister in the Central Government. The plan is to extend the boundaries of Kampala from time to time, year by year, until eventually the boundaries of the City of Kampala will encompass the entire boundaries of what is now Buganda. There will then be no Buganda anymore.Even now Buganda is as good as dead and yet the Baganda continue to give Mr. Museveni votes, poor blinds that they are. Long live Museveni.

    Standing for an athem is not compulsory, are we really going to start throwing people into jails for they have not stood for it? Athems are symbols of national indpendence and that indpendence must give us a right to stand or not to. On his going to Belerus that is very important for it was that trip in which we even lost a Uganda Air Line plane that Yugoslavia took, but how is that conected to Buganda? Isn’t that a national issue? Just curious.

    I am having some problems in communication and have been with them for some moths now, but we are working on them and will be back. Do not use my email adress for it was disconected due to the volume it was dumping on my server, the Email will be reconected as soon as I can communicate. Mwami Abbey Ssemuwemba call me kindly.

    All be well and happy holidays.
