A presidential candidate that will win the hearts and minds of Ugandans to bring forth the so much needed change in leadership personnel will not raise from the activists flame and we have seen many hopes shuttered to prove this.
The following are the key factors I will look for in a presidential candidate that will spike my interest and excite me:
The same should clearly acknowledge and outline the positive changes or developments over the last several years even if the count might call for only one hand.
The same should promise to keep the integrity of the current system and make necessary countrywide civil servant changes overtime based on qualifications irrespective of tribal affiliations or the path of ascension to positions in question.
The same must emphasize rule of law not vengeance.
The same must acknowledge that all Ugandans are the same and have a right to privileges they qualify for.
The same must promise necessary changes and express visions based on current state not past or historical precedence.
The same must present developmental programs that are fully supported by teams of knowledgeable people in the field in question.
The same must present a progressive, coherent and detailed plan to the extent they can, addressing all government sectors in the country moving forward.
The same must be open to debate their visions and plans in a public forum when called for.
The same should have a supporting base rooted in a diverse political party or collation of independent fellow citizens.
The same must be chosen by fellow citizens in free and fair elections.
The same must be qualified as outlined in the constitution of the Republic.
The same must acknowledge the services offered by current leaders and propose ways and means through which their accumulated knowledge can be used for the best outcomes of the nation.
