I believe we all know where the cause, the fault and Achilles’ heel are, when it come to the land issue, in Uganda, and especially in Buganda.
The land issue is tightly intertwined with Museveni/ NRM bigger political outlook, – land-grab, from the bona-fide owners and transfer to preferred persons/ tribes, at a cost of nothing/ near to nothing. In the process enrich and empower those tribe/s or groups, at the expense of the ones deliberately left landless and impoverished.
This is not a policy that has evolved over a few years, but one that was at the centre to waging a phoney guerrilla war against Obote. It’s no surprise that those who engaged in that “fighting Obote’s dictatorship” charade, are the biggest winners and landowners in Uganda today. Is it not preposterous that by the time Rwigema died, not long after the bush war, he had already carved off a few square miles of land in Mubende. The Rwadese tyrant, Kagame, has his chunk put to one side. The Gestapo Commandant Kale sits well on substantial acres of lands some where in Lyantonde area.
It’s all a joke!!!!
The Achilles’ heel in this whole land grabbing affair is none other all cultural leaders, and the big religious denominations leaders, who are sitting pretty, accepting gifts from the tyrant, while turning a blind eye to what is going on. Mengo is at fault, just as any other significant centre of influence is, in Uganda.
However, we can all sit back, huddle together and morn as the beast picks off one at a time, until the return of Christ, or stand up and put right the injustice, claim back what is rightfully ours, if need be forcefully!!
