What would Kabaka have said in Buwekula 60 years ago

Standard

Dear Ugandans at heart,

1/5 This is not a debaters’ beauty contest.  We are here to split the hideous atoms that for years have been swept under the carpet of our chequered history, if only to free you of your tedious phantoms.  We are here to give facts and figures.  We are here to scrutinise each others claims, and respond to them with logical counterclaims and not spite, ridicule, personal attack, smoke screens, red herrings and all the rest of the footsoldiers of the battalion of logical fallacies whose deployment has become your speciality.

2/5 Let us see what RM Mutebi would have said in Buwekula 60 years ago, if today, it is not cynicism that has taken the better of him; hence his references to “peaceful coexistence”, of all places in Buwekula.

3/5 Go today to any archive of your choice, look up the census results of 1948 published by the East African Statistical Department 1950 (Geographical and Tribal studies).  When you go to page 17, you see that the population of Banyoro in Mubende was 70% and the population of Baganda was 21%.  A decade later in 1959, the percentage of Banyoro in the whole of Mubende had dropped to 54% and that of Baganda had risen to 28%!

4/5 Below are the details figures giving the tragedy of the demographic decline of the Banyoro, and the real logical explanation of the quasihigh-minded pontification of peaceful coexistence 50 years down the line.    DEMOGRAPHIC DECLINE OF BANYORO IN MUBENDE (ETHNIC CLEANSING?)

5/5 Then, we shall ask, when RM Mutebi makes reference to “unity”, is he not cracking funny jokes about ropes at the lumbe of a victim of hanging?  What are the referent objects of that new-found unity, or has it been said on instruction?

  1. Major Sabiiti Mutengesa,
    I honestly do not see how exactly the ordinary flactuation in demographics negates a call for unity and respect for each other’s culture, especially since these flactuations are not unique to Mubende, nor indeed to Uganda. You may be alluding to (ethnic) cleansing, albeit without adducing evidence thereto, but I still fail to understand the point you are trying making in connection with His Majesty’s call for unity and mutual respect.

    This is not meant to vitiate the value of your statistics, for what they are worth, nor the effort you have put into digging them up, but how are they negating His Majesty’s call for unity and mutual respect in Mubende? I am just trying to stay focused on the subject, and not digress, if you see what I mean!

    Please elucidate, as I could be quite possibly be missing something lurking behind your posting.
