Buganda under a State of Emergency again


1/4. In selected areas of Buganda, at least according the GoU/NRM mouth piece, the New Vision [20th Sept. 10] any meeting between 5 people or more (whether family members, school buddies or not] will need the permission, not of just the Police but of the IGP _ the Inspector General of Police, who happens not to be a Police man, after all.

2/4. The sad thing here is that, last time Buganda was placed under emergency Rule [’66-’71], the then Dictator had the bravery to use Parliament to rubber-stamp the decision, which had to be renewed every 6 months.

3/4. Today, this is done without even a Cabinet paper, let alone a pronunciation on it. It is done by the “security” Forces, on orders from the ‘Almighty ABOVE” [who ever this may be].

4/4. Conclusion:

In other words, the freedoms enshrined in the Constitution are now taken away at his whims, fears, like and dislikes of a brutal, selfish, group, scared even of children gathering to play a ‘banana-fibre’ game of football. Hmmmm???
