I agree with Michael Senyonjo that Kabaka should not meet Kaguta. Our Kabaka was blindly convinced to join the war in Luwero which NRA was loosing. Kabaka mobilized the rest of Baganda to increase their support for that war efforts. Had support drifted to any other fighting group, say UFM, again victory would have gone to that other group – not NRA.
However, since NRM came to power, how many prominent Baganda have been killed in mysterious circumstances? Did the restoration of the Kingdom came on a silver plate? Even to allow playing “Bika” football tournament was a tug of war!
Whoever wanted to set up FM radio stations did it easily but was it easy for Buganda? Schools have been burnt with no proper investigations being carried out to compensate the loss of lives and properties.
It is only Buganda in the whole of Uganda which is begging for its future existence. The Government is increasingly embarked on clandestine sinister plans to destroy Buganda. Which other region is threatened like Buganda? Which other areas are threatened by “ssabamoris”?
For 23years Buganda is engaged in negotiations with the Govt. but what has it achieved? All the time is only harvesting hatred and isolation from the rest of the country. It is always seen as an opportunistic region which craves for a special status. It is only now that Buganda is extracting itself from the isolation that the Govt. wants to negotiation with the Kabaka badly!
The list of suspicions for Buganda goes on endlessly under the current NRM regime. The more the Kabaka negotiate with Museveni the more Buganda endures the suffering and sets the failures to achieve its goals to benefit Buganda and Uganda in general. I believe it will be unwise for our Kabaka to enter into such negotiations with Museveni without negotiators from other regions accompanying him.
Obote isolated Buganda by rigging DP votes outside Buganda and succeeded!! Museveni has done it in different ways for 23 years! Baganda are living in constant suspicion of NRM’s sinister plans against them. Every prominent Muganda is being keenly watched through that strategy. They are all being kept in a careful check.
If such a meeting is to take place with Museveni, other regions must be incorporated. Our Kabaka should stay away from that meeting. Museveni is the one fomenting the creation of such a funny special status for Buganda. We should avoid to be accorded such a status.
Should such a meeting take place; people should anticipate a catastrophe to befall on Buganda. Buganda must stand with other regions if we are to a achieve sanity.
