Keeping quiet for a longer period than I expected, I have been on the sidelines standing and keenly watching, while at the same time mocking politicians on the other side [opposition], that has shaken the oak tree, Museveni, for more than thirty years now.
Who will really go to heaven among politicians in Africa? Before and immediately after the parliamentary and presidential polls on January 14th, Ugandans, full of hope, thought that revolutionaries who commenced controlling Uganda in the late eighties, would be squeezed into quitting. This never happened.
We who think before others do knew the incumbent would emerge victorious. Museveni won. He was sworn-in in May as Bobi Wine and others gazed in disbelief.
The common man in the streets is there, still, expecting something to happen, perhaps because plan B is there, on its way coming.
Experts that consider politics as oxygen they breathe know that there is no plan B.
Museveni will, without any interruption, rule until his term ends in the 2026. We shall tell you why. Today is an introduction.
Politicians on opposition had a way that could be seen by all – toppling Museveni in a free and fair election. They slumbered. He won.
All unbiased men and women who mastered the art of creating sense with their pens know that this opposition in this country couldn’t, in an election, win an organized and experienced leader, Museveni, whose only business is to rule.
I am now among the very many Ugandans who are puzzled. I really know how long-serving leaders are sweet talked from their thrones. No one is willing to listen.
We shall one day conclude that politicians from poor countries will agree when poor. When their problem, hunger, is solved, they forget about the electorate and concentrate on hungering for more money and manna, availed to them by rulers that they once hated.
Those that could be shaking NRM’s hand so that the appetite inducing meat may be dropped are all keeping quiet, in the August house eating, and learning more about the science of lying to ignorant and poverty-stricken voters.
Opposition politicians in Africa have a habit of forgetting to work to accomplish goals once food is thrown to their once rickety tables.
I am truly intelligent that no one can deceive me because they are shouting, asking ministers and secretaries responsible to answer questions asked them by opposition politicians from toothless gangs. We are sober, as we were about seven years ago.
Accepting to race to parliament and to accept to gobble the tax payer’s money, in parliament is among the convincing reasons why I sometimes take some opposition politicians in this country for granted. There is always calm after threatening storms. We thought Uganda would burn to ashes before the ageing president could be sworn-in. No rich politician wages war. Uganda is calm. Expected.
It totally confirms to me that opposition huge bellied men and huge bottomed women shouting all the time are just barking dogs.
Who never saw us waking up during small hours so that we could scribble lines that advised men in power on what to do, week in week out?
We worked for free for long. We are very fed up. We embarrassed ourselves for long that some of our relatives will never talk to us again.
We ran to the other side that they never understood, and talked politics. We were hated.
I am happy to announce that I am today born again, and will, therefore, never use my pen, again, to write to please unfocused people that are today on opposition and in parliament, richer than they were late last year.
You should apologize to people who queued up in sun to vote for you people. Masaka is fully opposition.
The killings that were rampant during those days happened…Think before concluding.
Hunger and poverty are among the factors that have weakened the opposition in Uganda to this extent. They are in august house and elsewhere eating manna, some of which is provided by the rulers of the country, and the tax payer.
Expect perhaps a lot from yours truly, every week, on this platform. Shame on you opposition men and women.
We shall explain to our readers here why Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo and others dumped opposition at the time they were really wanted. Expect me here again in a few days. Stick around. firstname.lastname@example.org
