The Luwero Bush fighters are are the biggest winners and landowners in Uganda today



BY SSEKAGA VIA THE UAH FORUM

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.

Saleh is now among the biggest land owners in Uganda


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!!

I don’t think Bobi Wine has the mojo!


Bobi Wine: I will not support the age limit bill; the man has ruled us for many years

BY AKIM ODONGO VIA UAH FORUM

You can take a man from the ghetto but the ghetto will never leave them! We have seen the same phenomena in The US where a ghetto fellow who happened to be very rich and managed to etched his way to the statehouse and now what we have a is a state house full of the ghetto stench. Do we want the same for Uganda?

Bobbi Wine is not the first Musician to send political messages through his song, most musicians in the north have been doing that close to a decade, its only that the words may not be understood across Karuma but all along northerners have been dancing to tunes echoing imbecility, ghettoism and corruption in the leadership in Kampala.

I agree with Abbey Semuwemba that Bobi has appeal and youthfulness is on his side and also that he has ambition but that is about all he can deliver. However, Uganda as nation in a modern world, needs more than that and i don’t think Bobi Wine has the mojo, the capacity to deliver that. Albeit, where we are, anything can do at moment!. Any form of transition at this point in time, is better than no transition at all, especially if it inching towards federalism and so i will accept and support Bobi’s ambition. It has to said that, Bobi’s ascendancy will very much depend on the support from the central. As longer Musevenis bread is still being buttered by the untiring hands in the Central, Bobi Wine should content with the wine in his cellar!

Hon.Nabila is being fought because she’s a social person who associates with anyone!


Nabilah Naggayi Sempala

By Isaac Balamu via UAH forum

Hon. Naggayi Nabilah’s problem with Besigye dates back long time ago, these are not new unless you are just hearing these issues, but i have put all these issues on the forum before, the reasons why Nabilah is being fought is her closeness to Nasasira, at one time they wanted even to expel her from the party claiming she was soon going to join NRM and this is the problem Besigye has, how can someone not associate with anyone from NRM yet represents a constituency with NRM members. Why should people be divided on such lines?

For those who know Nabilah she was like that right from school days, she was an outgoing person, she is a social person, and why should she change just because she is in politics. Some of the people she is being accused to associate with she knew them long ago before even Besigye run away from NRM, now does she have to drop her friends just because Besigye says so.

It is like a person who falls out with his galfriend and tells all his friends not to associate with the gal as if it concerns them. NRM is the sitting government, MPs have to associate with minsters who are policy makers to bring services to their people. What is happening to Nabilah is the same what happened to the Kumi woman MP.

Museveni has reached his sell by date and everybody knows that but there is no alternative at the moment!


BY AKIM ODONG VIA UAH FORUM

The composition of the opposition leadership is vital to the current politics but not the party they represent. It is common knowledge that Ugandans overall are fed up with the NRM and they want change. Unfortunately, none of the opposition leaders seem capable of convincing the masses that they are agents of change, worse still the masses belong to different parties and crucially, alot of them are floating as a result of discontent, this is the crucial mass that is able to sway to the oppositions. The fact is, should they turn to the multiple opposition, their vote will still count for nothing. This is the reason why it’s crucial that the opposition merge, into one with a single head inorder to capture this floating voters, who could be the determinant of the outcome of the next election.

The opposition without wasting time should temporarily suspend their individual status and form a single body manned by a dream team under a charismatic leader. A leader who is able to articulate the issues that matters to Ugandans most and able to take on Museveni. The new interim body set for the sole purpose of fighting the election should then be the one challenging the EC and other issues there on. The performance of the new body pre-election, will be determine who wins the election.
The present arrangement, means that the opposition are all speaking, albeit the same subject but as individuals. This to many, does not mean alot and may not sway them as long as they still have Olara,Akena,Besigye, Mao and Muntu as heads of individual parties.

Ugandans are desperate for change and anything could do at this point. Its a question of getting the right person to lead a united front and this what the opposition are failing to deal with, creating a united front for fear of losing the dimmest chance to be seen to stand up to the ogre.
Museveni has reached his sell by date and everybody knows that but there is no alternative at the moment. Ugandans are looking for united alternative capable of sweeping them all and jenka an opposition strong enough to defend them from an NRM backclash once defeated. The fear ofcourse is that should the NRM loose power, then the LRA may return or even Amin might just resurrect to torment them all over again. So without a united and strong enough opposition then, its a question of better the devil you know.

State House must fall under a government department with a permanent secretary


BY GEORGE OKELLO VIA UAH

State House must fall under a government department with a permanent secretary who deals with all management and disciplinary matters in his department. It is truly shocking that an employee takes it upon herself to report suspected criminal conduct or serious misconduct to the police authorities. Are there no management systems, including investigatory and disciplinary procedures in place? Why does it have to be the police or the president to deal with minor administrative matters? I work in the civil service myself and on a daily basis, we get reports of serious failings in NHS hospitals and GP Surgeries. But it is not my job to report these incidents or in fact any incident of a criminal nature to the police. If I did it, I would be sacked on the spot. A few weeks ago, we had an incident where a surgeon removed a patients testes, mistaking them for a gall bladder. Obviously this was serious negligence or even potentially criminally negligence. But it is not the role of my office to deal with criminal matters. We only deal with contract matters.The NHS has a specific office that deals with such matters and it is to that office that we quickly sent the complaint. Museveni’s penchant for micro management has totally destroyed the Ugandan civil service, It can no longer function normally, if at all. A matter that these women are feuding about at State House would normally be resolved by Supervisor or Line Manager as it is so minor it would not even require the attention of the HR or Personnel Manager, let alone the Permanent Secretary, and god forbid, the President. But you have the unbecoming spectacle of a whole President sacking an employee on social media, and threatening her in the process.

The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age?



BY JOHN NSUBUGA VIA UAH FORUM

Don’t you know that, the secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age? That is what some of our leaders are practicing. Old age is not a sin, but it’s not a joy either, any one can get old, all you have to do is live long enough. So, I’m not here to despise our elders, because I know they can be useful, but not every where. Once upon a time, whenever president Museveni was addressing Uganda, every citizen of East and Central Africa tuned in to listen to this sharp Munyankore son of Africa roar. Today when he speaks, cows, pigs, goats, birds, babies, money lenders, eeeeeverything goes to sleep.

Surely when your steak has to be put through a blender before its served, or when you wake up as many times during the night, but not for the same reasons, you know you’re too old to be president. When you put on a thick winter jacked and hand gloves like our president does in temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius, you know you’re too old to be president. Haven’t you heard that every thing that goes up must come down, but that there comes a time when not everything that’s down can come up?

What I’m saying is that, when age catches up with you, there are many warning signs, you will know it, therefore, you do not need a piece of paper to be reminded how old you’re. The excuse that some people do not know when they were born, is one of the very reasons we have “prohibitive lines in the holly constitution” for checks and balances purposes. Removing age limits will attract interested candidates in their 90s, being aided by push chairs. What do you do then, especially in our corrupt infested Uganda, where money changes hands in exchange for power?

Please be reminded that, it is very important that a country keeps on introducing fresh blood into the political system to maintain a healthy country. If these 90yr old somethings cling on to power, then I ask you, will Abbey Ssemuwemba ever contribute as president of Uganda? I know you mean well, but ours is a unique political environment, dominated by dictators and thieves. He rules you for 50yrs, he dies and his son takes over, and the sequence goes on.

We must maintain both age and term limits.

Akena and his wife have sold UPC to Museveni but we shall resist them!


Jimmy Akena and Betty Amongi

BY GEORGE OKELLO VIA UAH

It is really mystery how a mental midget like Akena could ever aspire for leadership of a great party like UPC. let alone be a national leader. The man does not have the intellectual capacity to be even a village leader. Just look at is record as a member of parliament. In more than 8 years sitting in that bogus house, have you heard Akena move a motion on any economic or social policy, or even debate on anything of substance? He has been telling his psychophants that kayibanda has promised to hand over power to him, just like Moi annointed Kenyatta’s son Uhuru as his successor. He clearly does not understand Kenyan politics- and the fact that Uhuru tred to create his own power base, seperate from KANU, which was already a badly soiled brand in any case. he does not understand Kemya politics. His only selling point is that he is the son of president obote. beyond that he does not have a clue as to what he would do with power, should he accidentally stagger into it.

The debate inside the UPC is very necessary at this moment in time, because I dont think we can carry on with Akena and his wife any longer. The two are scum, and make our task even more difficult to rebuild the party and get back to power and to where we belong.The issue here really is if James Akena and his wife Betty Amongi are beyond redemption or reached a point of no return..

Why are they powerful? why are Muslims powerless?
Here’s another reason. We have lost the capacity to produce knowledge.

o In the entire Muslim World (57 Muslim Countries) there are only 500 universities.
o In USA alone, 5,758 universities
o In India alone, 8,407 universities
o Not one university in the entire Islamic World features in the Top 500 Ranking Universities of the World
o Literacy in the Christian World 90%
o Literacy in the Muslim World 40%
o 15 Christian majority-countries, literacy rate 100%
o Muslim majority – countries , None
o 98% in Christian countries completed primary
o Only 50% in Muslim countries completed primary.
o 40% in Christian countries attended university
o In Muslim countries a dismal 2% attended.
o Muslim majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims
o The USA has 5000 per million
o The Christian world 1000 technicians per million.
o Entire Arab World only 50 technicians per million.
o Muslim World spends on research/development 0.2% of GDP
o Christian World spends 5 % of GDP

Conclusion.
o The Muslim World lacks the capacity to produce knowledge.

Another way of testing the degree of knowledge is the degree of diffusing knowledge.

o Pakistan 23 daily newspapers per 1000 citizens
o Singapore 460 per 1000 citizens.
o In UK book titles per million is 2000
o In Egypt book titles per million is only 17

Conclusion.
o Muslim World is failing to diffuse knowledge

Applying Knowledge is another such test.
o Exports of high tech products from Pakistan is 0.9% of its exports.
o In Saudi Arabia is 0.2%
o Kuwait , Morocco and Algeria 0.3%
o Singapore alone is 68%

Conclusion.
o Muslim World is failing to apply knowledge.

What do you conclude? no need to tell the figures are speaking themselves very loudly we are unable to listen
Advice:
Please educate yourself and your children. always promote education, don’t compromise on it, don’t ignore your children’s slightest misguidance from education (and please, for God’s Sake, don’t use your personal contacts or sources to promote your children in their education; if they fail, let them and make them learn to pass; b/c if they can’t do it now, they can’t ever).
We are World’s biggest and strongest nation, all we need is to identify and explore our ownselves. Our victory is with our knowledge, our creativity, our literacy…And nothing else.

Could the re-introduction of Swahilli as second official language be part of political-placating in E.A. Community…??


BY HANNAH OGWAPITI VIA UAH

I understand that in 1995 they abolished Swahili as the second official language, though a decade later it was re-introduced. Still, I did not find widespread use of it even in 2017.Could the re-introduction as second official language be part of political-placating in E.A. Community…?? You never know..!!

It is unfortunate that Swahili was associated with the military which for long had been an institution of oppression.When soldiers came to loot,rape,kill they spoke swahili,thus it has been hard to convince people especially in the central/south region to speak swahili.

Furthermore luganda being the language widely spoken in kampala,you can be understoood in many parts of uganda when you speak it,since it is widely used in commerce and in Kigali(Rwanda) you can hear luganda spoken.Personally i would advocate for swahili because of its wide coverage,you can hear swahili in kenya,tanzania,comoros,mozambique,rwanda,burundi,congo,mozambique and i hear even namibia!!!!not for getting sudan,somalia.

The language itself developed from the intermarriage of the dialect of these dwellers with Arabic. For historical reasons the language then spread further along the coast as well as in the interior, where it became lingua franca in one version or another.

But it remained a foreign language to most of the population in all places except the coastal origin. During the politicisation of the language issue during the mid-sixties, to a proposal for making Swahili as the sole national language of Uganda, Obote is reported to have asked: “Why Swahili? Why not Gujarati? Both are non-indigenous”.

With a number of their own local languages, Ugandans did not seem to want to put Swahili on a pedestal, especially if it was at the cost of abandoning English as the language of official communication. In academics, there were many with a view similar to the reason for Obote’s rejection of the proposal for making Swahili as the national language.Only political sloganeers loved to promote Swahili on to a pedestal.

MUSEVENI SPEAKS POOR ENGLISH AND ITS EMBARRASSING!


By George Okello Via UAH

I think a leader should be able express him/herself in their chosen language of fluency in an impeccable manner. They do not have to use English, because there are now translators who can do voice-overs. I don’t think Uganda can go on with semi literate leaders like Idi Amin, Tito Okello and Yoweri Museveni, whose mangled attempts at speaking English are just so embarrassing to our younger generation. Of Uganda’s leaders, only Milton Obote could speak perfect English. Therefore, why would Idi Amin not speak in Swahili, Tito Okello not speak in Luo and Museveni not speak in Kinyarwanda and then make use of voice-overs, interpreters and translators?

Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, speaks good English and German, but when he is addressing international audiences, he speaks in Russian and his speech is translated because he does not want to be misunderstood. So does the new French President Francois Hollande who speaks both English and German but makes all his public speeches in French, which is his native language.

So why can’t Museveni speak in Kinyarwanda and make use of interpreters and translators and voice-overs, instead of embarrassing Ugandans with his very poor grasp of the English language?
