Covid-19 brought with it belief that there are some things that are impossible.
With a well-organized curfew in place and the inability of more than two hundred people to gather, we sit often in our study rooms and wonder how disunited opposition men and women can think of a dependable path that can be taken, to dethrone wise Museveni.
The day Beti Kamya and Jessica Alupo were seen on top of the list of those to think for the NRM chairman, both, is the day I accepted that the struggle had commenced plunging into a sea similar to the red one.
I am this bold to tell you that opposition politicians are the same. Kamya saw it in dreams. She, immediately, crossed to ruling NRM.
Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo, even in her heart, knows it that no one there where she was has time to think of the exact path to take to squeeze leading men in this poverty-stricken country into quitting power.
Someone is whispering to me. What can they [badly-groomed Erias Lukwagos] do? Football that we used to ardently follow is shitty, and MP Magogo, the current FUFA president, also knows it.
Before I admired my rare pen here [a few moments ago], to grab it to write, to open your eyes, Express FC had, already, been dehumanized by newly promoted Arua Hill at Betway Muteesa II stadium.
Where can we run, for solace now? As usual, politicians have shown it to us that their main mission now is to remain relevant.
We have agreed that their hated regime has no reason to fear, for they [some MPs] will, until dreams are transmuted into reality, be down near the ordinary voter, convincing them that electricity will reach every house, that roads through villages will be similar to that called Tirinyi.
Education for all will one day be real. A Ugandan in a sub-county where Museveni is voted knows that opposition politicians are jokers. Poverty will one day too end now that peace is almost everywhere.
Bandits recently in greater Masaka were neutralized by police and an army that will, in less than ten years from now, be hugely professional.
He [Besigye] is a spent force as NUP members have reiterated it on a daily basis but they should know that Besigye almost single-handedly paved the way to where we are today.
We may refuse to accept it but, Kizza Besigye accepted to confront hugely powerful men then and risked his life, so hard, that he catapulted himself into the caliber of the most arrested politicians in the world.
We were created by the same God. He, Kizza Besigye, is a politician like me. He can too can refuse to ignore the hunted animal so that he may leave it for others to enjoy it so that they may have freedom to climb powerful men and to, eventually, forevermore, eat because the Besigyes sweated.
Besigye has thought for more than a year now, he sees no reason why he must give up. He started the struggle about 23 years ago.
The late Nasser Ssebagala had no feared academic credentials but his brain was so much irrigated that he eventually endorsed Besigye.
Besigye should not fear. Bobi Wine, a man whose team is good at making social media noise, is in fact far behind Besigye in ability.
Kizza Besigye is surrounded by mostly outdated politicians but, trust me, they will talk and talk until president Museveni hears what they will be shouting. He is not as old and outdated as we think.
He has waited for more than thirty years, he still can wait until his time comes. The nagging has been annoying. Besigye has been abused enough.
He thinks it is time for him to turn back from far away from the Promised Land to the path, he made, leading to it. I have been impressed by his recent lectures on coronavirus virus.
Let Besigye be left alone. Like those in NUP, he thinks he thinks better than his friends. Hard work pays. Singing for years, made Bobi Wine himself a millionaire at less than thirty years of age [the line is intentionally manufactured]. Besigye has been persistent enough.
He dumped glittering academic papers and headed to monkey-infested forests to fight for this freedom and peace. He should be informed that Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years.
It can be done. He is a sane Ugandan. Moreover a patriot. He can be president. Kifefe Besigye should be convinced into fighting on until Museveni chooses to quit after seeing the transformed Uganda he, on a daily basis, thinks about.
Plan Bs are impossible. These confusingly disunited opposition politicians should rest. Behind the scenes, our rulers are working. email@example.com
