In the news release of 9/11/2009, president Museveni blames Mengo for not accepting
an elected Prime minister and a regional tier.
Please help me to answer the following questions:
1- Prof Nsibambi is Prime Minister of Uganda. In what constituency was
he ever elected – yet he has much more power than the Katikkiro of Buganda?
2- Was regional tier meant only for Buganda? Why was it not implemented in
other parts of Uganda?
3- In the press release, the President clarified that the current Mengo institution is
not political. It is not a government; it is not a non-government organization.
It is a cultural institution and cannot have Ministers.
QN: If that is the case, then why does the central government want to impose an
elected Katikkiro on a non-government organization?
4- The president said, “The regional tier is still in the constitution and can be
implemented even tomorrow”.
QN: If those supposed to benefit from it do not want it, why try to impose it on
them? Is there a hidden agenda in this so called regional tier?
