Research has proved it beyond doubt that there is no country in the world assisted by Western developed countries and has developed socially, economically and politically.
Some of these assisted countries have even become poorer and failed states while others are in endless wars.
Any one seeking Western powers to provide a lasting solution and create a new positive change in the developing world, it may be so far to reach.
The best example is Liberia whose Constitution was written by US using Harvad Academicians in 1841 and later the president of America James Monroe helped his son Joseph Roberts Jeckins whom he produced in the Black American to be the first president.
The capital city of Liberia which is Monrovia was named after him. Liberia is like an extension of USA as the two countries use almost the same Constitution.
Liberia also uses US dollars as their local currency. Liberia land was bought by America Colonisation Society when it needed to send back Black Americans to Africa.
The country is expected to be the Africa model of the Western assisted countries. But the country has lived in wars throughout and the hope to stabilize is far to reach.
President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf tried to keep the country together and peaceful in her two terms but she was under the influence and protection of UN which provided most support and protection under United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).
UN pulled out after two terms of president Johnson and life has become hard again in Liberia under president George Weah.
Before two years in office the country was on fire until elders and many agencies sat and provided temporary peaceful resolutions which is still guiding the president.
Liberia may need a peacekeeping mission again as it has been the case. Uganda is among the African countries to send army for peace keeping mission in Liberia.
Uganda sent UPDF to help Liberia get peace and the first team of 173 UPDF well trained soldiers arrived in Liberia in 1994 under the command of Gen. Ivan Koreta. The team was later re-enforced with more officers from Uganda who joined forces from other countries. Uganda did great work in Liberia which gave it a big name on Africa continent.
Since then, Uganda has become the most instrumental force in peace keeping missions in Africa and beyond. Liberia has remained unstable yet built on a solid foundation of Western powers.
Africa has lost million people in wars which would have been saved by so called super powers, but they look on when people are being butchered. They always have their hidden agenda and report late when the biggest damage is already done and spend most of the time dealing with post war effects and blamig Africans.
Some of African wars are manufactured in the West to destabilize economies so that they take advantage during these wars.
Another good case in Africa, is Rwanda genocide where 800,000 people were killed while the Western powers watched. During the genocide Americans and the British held biggest positions on the UN Security Council but closed doors of their offices when people were being killed in Rwanda and started shouting after killings. They used beaucracy to delay the whole system and when they come to Africa they want things rushed in one day using some undefined terminologies like democracy and human rights.
Rwanda is the biggest lesson to those who think that the Western can help any country to solve problems and fully develop. Those interested to understand Rwanda case how Nations and United Nations failed to save people should read more on Rwanda genocide and find the plain truth and untold ugly stories.
The best book is by a Canadian who headed the UN Mission “Shake Hands with the Devil; The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda” by Lt. Gen. Romeo Dallaire who was Force Commander UN Assistance Mission for Rwanda.
In his heartbreaking book , he writes that when going to Rwanda thought he was going to help two warring parties to achieve peace which both sides wanted.
Instead , he and members of his small international force were caught up in a vortex of civil war and genocide. Dallaire left Rwanda a broken hearted man, disillusioned, suicidal and determined to tell the ugly stories about the genocide which are evil, ugly, bad and heartbreaking.
On arrival back home his first statement “I know there is a God because in Rwanda I shook hands with the devil, I have seen him, I have smelled him, and I have touched him. I know the devil exists, and therefore I know there is God.
There are many books on Rwanda but Dallaire who was on the ground and touched devil has the best on Rwanda. There are other best ten books on Rwanda genocide which include; The Rwanda Crisis, a History of the Genocide ( Gerald Prunier), A People Betrayed ;The Role of the West in Rwanda Genocide (Linda Melvern), A Problem from Hell; America and Age of the Genocide (Samantha Power), Eye Witness to a Genocide; United Nations and Rwanda (Michael Barnett), Leave None to Tell the Story; Genocide in Rwanda (Alison Des Forges), We Wish to Inform you that We will be Killed Tomorrow with Our Families: Stories from Rwanda (Philip Gourevitch), The Shallow Graves of Rwanda (Shaharyar Khan), Guns Over Kigali (Ghanaian Brigadier Henry Anyindoho), Preventing Genocide; How the Early Use of Force might have Succeeded in Rwanda (Colonel Feil) and When Victims Become Killers (Mahmood Mamdan). United Nations Mission in Uganda and Rwanda (UNOMUR) was in Rwanda to stop the genocide but could not do much as UN failed to provide in the most crucial time of the genocide.
The new world order which was planned in 1990s to destroy the world using different actors deadly weapons and then rebuild it as one nation working with international alliances, is now in progress using most sophisticated knowledge which should be noted watched carefully especially African states.Fransis Fukuyama who an American advisor on international issues has always warned about imported democracy which cannot be definined in the local context and an Italian philosopher Giovanni Sartori defined democracy as a pompas description of something that doesn’t exist.
Democracy has been analyzed, defended, ignored, practiced, destroyed and restored, but still it is a big challenge to the world with many countries not practicing it trying to force other countries to embrace with their own guidelines.
The Western powers are using this as an entry point and motivate opposition and other forces to rise up and demand for undefined democracy and human rights.
Democracy and human rights advocated for is not anywhere making most countries trying to put them place. Laws and policies which are in place based on specific countries are being challenged by the West to create an entry point.
They claim to be providing a solution yet only taking advantage and take control. It is all about economic benefits and nothing beyond and it can be well explained looking at countries where they have worked.
In March 2021 United States Country released Uganda country Report on human Rights with a lot of distortions about elections as if they had limited or were fed with wrong information. For example they never captured Covid19 as the biggest challenge during elections. One may wonder the intention of the report.
Some Ugandans started running all over the world to seek a solution for Uganda. Unless home based solutions are created, the West will do less to restore peace and enhance economic development. It has not happened anywhere and it is not going to be anywhere until Jesus comes back.
Uganda’s solid foundation which was laid by His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni after the liberation struggle is more strong and should be supported by all patriotic Ugandans who know that the country is built by it’s good citizens with homemade solutions.
Uganda’s democracy is not anywhere on this continent and women representation is even ahead of some Western countries. The peace and democracy has enabled Uganda to host the highest number of refugees in Africa. Most refugees in Africa prefer hostel Uganda than any African country.
This is a big sign of peace and democratic governance which the West is trying to dismantle and take charge. Some of isolated cases which happen even in the most powerful countries in the world should not make Ugandans worry as the new world order challenges Africa.
When America made Noise Control Act 1972 and and Quiet Communities Act 1978 was trying to put in order the country and control a section of people who were becoming unruly especially the Black Americans.
Some African countries may put in place laws to suit with the situation on the ground and this should not warrant the West to challenge them provided it is done through right channels.
The speed at which the West moves Africa is terrific and may cause more harm. The time of the Genocide, they needed time to study the situation and American women to be allowed to vote, the process took 100 years in negotiations.
Africa has to process some activities and take a position with enough information.
Uganda needs to set strong new regulations to help her enhance economic growth by suppressing paid Western lobbyists to who are here to drail efforts of development with plans to destroy Uganda economy through many forums.
Uganda has to publish impressive economic and impressive political achievements and Uganda Media should embrace it and take it beyond boarders using different media houses and social media platforms by challenging negative forces turning the country.
Modern States have moved beyond and friends and families in recruiting government serious officers and Uganda should take suit in order to get people who are very productive and willing to shape the country.
Uganda has to bring together most powerful political actors for the common good. One of the reasons why president Pombe Magufuli managed to reform Tanzania, he destroyed many power factions and brokers and created one coordination centre in order to monitor one resource pool.
Leaving powerful politicians in the country and each pulling resources to his interest weakens the economy and monitoring becomes a big challenge to the state.
When Magufuli did this the West got on him. At one time a US based Tanzania social media blogger, was funded to stop Magufuli reshapping Tanzania economy. Mange Kimambe organised demostrations in Tanzania funded by the West. This came as a result of Magufuli tough economic reforms and anti corruption measures where some Tanzanians had connived with the West to cheat the country.
United States, European Union and several Western embassies in Tanzania came out boldly to oppose Magufuli but he affirmed his people that soon Tanzania would be the land of honey and milk. He challenged all Western odds and kept focused.
Policies that respect , protect and serve all Ugandans with accountability, transparent will keep the country on track. Services nearer to people should continue to lead in most governance agencies for a better Uganda.
Uganda should be strong enough in order to protect itself from all challenge today and those to come ahead. Most countries which wait for powerful Nations to support them end in shambles. Some powerful countries like USA took time to plan for their countries and today they can do anything anywhere. America is very strong mainly because of best economy, military science, technology, big population and networks connected through their embassies.
US leads the world with embassies and missions across the globe and every country on the planet Earth has an embassy in the USA. US spends 44 billon dollars on defense and security only far ahead of all Africa total annual budget combined. It has the strongest intelligence agencies in the world like FBI, CIA, US Navy, US Marine, US Air Force etc.
It is advantaged to host organizations which control the world resources like UN agencies, Word Bank and International Monetary Fund. These make US extremely strong almost in all sectors and some of them facilitate its operations to weaken some countries. It is one of the reasons why most African countries today are shifting to Asian emerging economies like China and India for technology and financial support.
Ugandans in the diaspora have continued to be a challenge to Uganda by discrediting Uganda as a failed state and non democratic without observing human rights. This is done most especially by the opposition which is funded by bad elements and Western powers interested in the fall of Uganda so that they can take advantage. There are those whose work is to send information through all major media platforms, governments, inter governmental organizations, Non Governmental Organizations and different agencies including leaders.
The serious campaign is going on but still Ugandans and the world believe that Uganda is still better and more safer with the current leadership.
The NRM winning Uganda North America Association (UNAA), it clearly shows how the party is growing more strong even in the diaspora. The president of UNAA Henrietta Nairuba Wamala is a member of NRM diaspora.
Ugandans should wake up and engage the world through social media platforms and other media agencies about the transformed Uganda. Government media agencies should take lead to keep Uganda image above.
New opportunities in investment, business and trade plus tourism and other opportunities makes Uganda ahead in Sub Sahara Africa and it leads Africa in more sectors.
Ugandans should keep on supporting the regime headed by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni for social and economic transformation. Those who are against the NRM leadership will soon join because of it’s services guided by vision 2040.
Ugandans seeking for the Western to provide lasting solutions for Uganda, should seek for the best option not with the West which come with hidden agenda to destroy our nations.
