In 1937, the Imperial Japanese Army descended on the then capital of China and ended up taking the lives of about 142,000 people. No one has ever forgotten this blatant war crime.
77 years later, at Nanjing again [belonging to the Chinese too but not in China but in Uganda] a group of conspirators sat to ‘cook-up a creeping coup against the Ugandan constitution through a by-pass action at Kyankwanzi indoctrination centre.
The coup would among other things, sentence suspected pedophiles and deviant ‘behaviorists’ , and by extension political rivals, ‘opposition politicians’, to imprisonment without trial for 180 days. It would also create an apartheid state in Kampala where by, of all the Ugandan citizens of Uganda, only 3 million Kampalans shall cease to elect their own 4th-tear [district] leaders. Most important, it would sanction the installation of an Emperor via a ‘life-presidency.
These actions, Nanking-II enactments in reality, put together may lead to the death of a 15 million Ugandans, making the renown 1937 Nanjing massacre look like child-play.
Young hecklers overthrow own party? The non-agenda item at the NRM retreat to overthrow the competent party organs and therefore confirm the “Life-Presidency” has succeeded in one major aspect: in diverting us from the real issues facing the party and state.
First, the issue was non an agenda item (agendas are prepared by the Sec. Gen; so no wonder as he was the target). at disenfranchised the party faithful and the Ugandan masses.
Second, it helped open the eyes of those who still had hopes in the big man: he’s a conspirator a la Brutus [Vs Julius Caesar] He was the architect of the whole rowdy, blackmailing exercise: proof: He never opposed the motion nor restrained the ‘mad’ youth.
Most important, the 10-day ‘imprisonment’ of 400 productive Ugandans in a backward economy is proof that the NRM top-dogs do not care about service delivery to the citizens. Millions of activities were tied up by their absence from their desk or duty areas [not only MP’s but drivers, experts, drivers, cooks, guards, scientists, etc].32 thousand ‘man-hours’ hied up to serve or offer a ‘propaganda stunt’ is no mean waste in a banana republic.
The coup [choosing candidates in a preserve of the delegates conferences, not MP’s] by the hired NRM hecklers at state expense , against their own party organs has no basis in law but is a good opener to who is leading us and pointer to where we are headed.
