Allow me to contradict myself but I am beginning to see much sense in this woman’s recent behavior. And I should be excused for thinking that she has won both the war and the battle head high!
Forget all the moral hypocrisy most of us have exhibited here and elsewhere. We all have a sex and obscene animal in us which we exhibit from time to time, mostly behind the closed doors of our bedrooms and/or bathrooms.
Dr Stella has gone one better over us by exploiting this animal and unleashing it vs her tormentors. With it she has struck two birds with one stone. She has not only turned a would-be internal matter into a national and probably an international one but has also let loose her hitherto deep-seated agony of sexual, social and probably physical abuse.
Let the moralists cry foul as loud as they wish but the woman has caught everybody’s attention and has not only exposed the oppressor, who’s now on the defensive, but has just opened a new chapter of peaceful defiance and resistance. We have not seen the last nudity protest and only God knows which oppressor will be tamed next.
Has this woman broken any law? Her lawyer thinks otherwise and it’s noteworthy that up to now Kaihura has desisted the temptation to pounced on her. The University Disciplinary Authority will have to comb the University disciplinary rules to make a water tight case against this woman. I hear they are riding against the storm!
There’s just one thing that worries me, Edward. It’s this thing of death striking in the family in the August of each of the past two years. Is it a coincidence? Do you see a trend? Who’s next in the queue?
By the way, does anyone know if Aunt Susan and Uncle Andrew have been kind enough to answer the woman’s questions?
RAJAB ALI, LONDON, VIA THE UAH FORUM
I celebrate my use of nudity, obscenity and profanity to protest against six years of the brutal rape and sodomization of my employment contract. My family members that matter all accept the necessity of my protest. Against intense pressures from many distant relations suddenly interested in my wellbeing, my close family clearly distinguish the protest as a work-related struggle that must be solved between myself and the public institution that employs me. That is the position of my family members that matter.
Now, wiseacre relatives who are clueless and distant to me are going into the limelight of the cameras to ‘apologise to the public on behalf of the family’. Blithering ignorant bumbling fools! I am neither apologetic nor regretful about my nude profane and obscene protest. Do not puncture my sails. You speak for neither me nor my sisters! You only want to enjoy the camera lights.
My father died in August 2014. My mother died in August 2015. None of these family members ever came to check on me, my siblings and my children. But now they had the audacity to apologise to the public for my nudity, obsenity and profanity. Fucking impostors.
Auntie Susan Bidandi Ssali, what were you doing in Bukedde apologising to the public for my nudity? Who sent you? Were you doing damage control or what? Why? Was it because you love us so much that you were helping to cleanse us from your perceived sense of the shame and disgrace facing us? Why didn’t you come and ask me if that is what I wanted? Did you ever apologise to the foreign public for the time you were found abroad when insane and stark naked because of schizophrenia? Why did you feel the need to undo what I am doing? Auntie Susan Bidandi Ssali, nvako. Tomanyira. Nja kukwanika mu lwattu bwewakumpanya Mummy essente ze ezettaka okutuusa lw’eyagenda emagombe. Nzungira ko mpola.
Uncle Andrew Lwenswa, what do you know about me, my life or my wishes? What were you doing on Bukedde apologising to the public about my nudity? Did you ever apologize to anyone for trying to forcefully have incestuous sex with one of my father’s daughters? Do you remember that night when we found your naked buttocks sneaking into her bed? Will you apologize for this attempted incest as well? And you desecrated my parents’ memory by lying about my upbringing in your apology. Wabadde weegula biki? Ssebo nvako, nvirako ddala. Kitange teyakundekera nga awandika ekilamo kye. Nzijjako obutaala n’akamanyiro. Tonjogerera nze!
As for Jaja Maria, I am at a loss for words. You are responsible for years of immense pain and suffering among my sisters due to your scorn at my mother for bearing your son no sons. Lwaki watukyawa ffe bawala ba Nyanzi abakulu? Obukyayi bwebwakututte ku Bukedde nga welokompojja? Jajja Maria nvako! Weefula afaayo enyo. Nze ndi Nnalongo owennenne. Buli lwempemula nga abalongo bakula. Abalya mmere wabula muwalampa. Nzijjako gasiya!
