It’s a 27-year Scandal – Buganda must secede

Standard

It’s a 27-year Scandal

Buganda, Alur, Bugishu, Karamojong, Tooro must defend her women, etc., against political party maddeness with power and the glory that never comes. Women must demand that nrm and its affiliated/opposing political parties committees themselves to offering them a monthly fund equivalent, to a balanced dairy meal and medicare to their children from 1 day up to 15 years of age.

Why should women otherwise vote for these parties?

There are only two methods an agricultural based economy can develop. That is by simultaneously stimulating both the supply and demand side of the sector. The above structure does not work independent of primary arrangements such as:

i. Transport facilitation

ii. Storage facilities (granaries or silos)

ii. Processing capability (drying, grounding or packaging)

iii. Packaging capability

iv. Marketing strategy

v. Subsidies, negative Taxation etc.

Which of the above, has nrm political economy scientist done in its 27 years of existence – none! nrm/nra can’t even produce packed beef from ‘Chinese’ owned meat factory in Lira or high-energy biscuits from Kawempe cassava factory for their ‘army’, which Amin a buffoon, kept doing all along his 8 year tenure!

In fact i – v encourage supply or demand automatically, on condition that

I.                   Medical workers

II.                Teachers

III.             School children

IV.             Prisoners

V.                The army

VI.             Police men/women

are organised to consume the above items i.e. if National (Libyan) Housing Construction Corporation was building organised human settlements for them.   The Colonial government never considers financing University Meals, and School Children (upe) meals carrying mawooru (left over) to primitive village schools as agricultural production strategy.

If naads money (billions stolen) went to buying 7 million litters of milk, orange, mango, pineapple and passion fruit juice, tinned beef and high protein biscuits monthly – more people will be in agriculture and no money will be stolen.

Why? A few Factories will be supplying directly to schools, colleges, universities and barracks and the a few banks will be crediting aro-processors accounts.

It is a 27-year scandal and Baganda support such nrm?!

nrm irrational programmes (naads, pma, peap etc.) virtually all of them have focused their vexing apathy on stimulating the supply side. That is government increasing money supply i.e. liquidity to farmers (access to money) to produce more (supply) albeit without, the needed agro-processing capacity. This money has also gone to acquiring wooden carts for cart pushers in Mukono!

By magic the creation of naads, then sacco’s it was thought, will instantly get people very rich from agricultural production! Now just imagine, that by a miracle about 10 million farmers all produce the same crops. What will be the end result in the present circumstance where there is neither agro- processing capacity nor consumption strategy? Majority people in the colonial state depend on subsistence for food provisions.

Notice, the entire colonial state of Uganda has only one and I emphasise only one centre of high consumption that is Kampala.

Irish potatoes and onions from Kabale are sold in Kampala.

Milk and banana from Mbarara are sold in Kampala

Rice and upland rice from Wakiso is sold in Kampala

Oranges, sweet potatoes and onions from Mbale sold in Kampala

Vegetables and maize sold in Kampala.

Sweet Bananas and Bogoya from Kalangala is sold in Kampala

Gojja from around mabira forest and sesse is sold in Kampala.

Fish is sold in Kampala

Eggs

Pineapples

Now, if the supply side in agriculture is to be fully effective and real, I mean real literary, certain precondition must be wholly insatiated.

  1. Post harvest mitigation measures i.e. storage capacity of surplus food stocks must be in place.
  2. Farmers must be guaranteed farm subsidies, to mitigate losses
  3. Cooperative unions must unite farmers. Bugishu, Karamoja, Buganda, Bakiga Produce Marketing Boards/ Banyankore kweterana /Bugishu coffee produces must be in place.
  4. Agro-processing industry must be fully functional. Diary aka sameen Corporation
  5. Tax regimes and non-competitive measures must be in place.
  6. Boost demand through internal consumption of agro products. (Uganda Foods and beverages)
  7. Agriculture Research (Serere, Kawanda, Nnamulonge etc.)
  8. Transport facilitation i.e. TransOcean, Uganda Railways or rvr(!) and Uganda Transport cooperative union.

Can you imagine post harvest waste and damage along transport routes? Mangoes season has end with tonnes of loses and the same will happen with oranges.!

Industrialisation!

Mark you all throughout the 70’s Uganda was transporting pineapples, cabbages and such to Europe using Uganda Airlines!

Which of the above a- h has nrm ever created or supported – none! Not even buying surplus produce like cereals (simsim, millet), beans, peas, maize, etc. which previous governments were doing through foods and beverages and the Produce Marketing Boards.

In a natural world, practice and intention with starting governmental supported entities (world over) is to support supply through internal demand i.e.

i.                    nrm run down Dairy Corporation producing ghee, creameries, milk products

ii.                  Textile Industries, machines sold-off by nrm functionaries

iii.                Food processing i.e. grain millers sold to nrm mafia.

iv.                Kawempe High Energy Biscuit factory for soldiers from cassava

v.                  Bugolobi coffee sold to agoa then to coffee again!!!!!!

vi.                There was oil production from maize, cotton seeds, nsogasoga, cocoa etc

vii.              Meat production with a factory run down by nrm revolutionally cattle keepers.

viii.            Uganda bread factory

Right from the 60’s throughout the 70s the colonial state infra and supra-structures to support both agricultural supply and demand sides of agricultural production were in place.

Amin Africanised but never ever sold off anything!

a.       Cotton produced was sold to ginners later sold to mulco, nyanza and nytil textiles. Cotton production boomed. Today people wear Mivumba sold on the capital city’s main street Kampala!

b.      foods and beverages sold and marketed Uganda’s agricultural produce within and without.

c.        Lint Market board marketed cotton products

d.      Coffee beans were bought by numerous coffee processors with time these were on their way to becoming big time coffee beverages produces. The same applied to cocoa from Bugerere.

  1. Before considering seceding, i think prospect Presidential candidates should come up with a model of how they think they can get the country out of NRM induced poverty cycle. Then we could judge them accordingly.

  2. buganda must secede to save our baganda economy. buganda region in Uganda does not have a population that requires to meet its demand. i elisted the communites that are in buganda and another furumist also did the same, i thougth that u understand this but you are just think with iced brains, wake up from slumbering. just to remind you baganda of a mamba clan are the ones you would call baganda.

    The ndiga clan are bagisu, the nkiima clan are bagisu, the mpologoma clan the majority are bagisu , ssese that used to be home of the mamba ganda are bagisu, the lake victoria uganda islanda are gisus who were haunted by their ancestors the masaba and they had to follow that route to come back to masaba land the remnants of whom are people of rusinga islands,ssese ,banyoli of kenya etc, kooki arebanyoro, bugerere, are nakasongora gorup whose advanced brothers comprse the busoga ruling clans and the bagwere people in eastern uganda are banyoro.

    nakasongora are banyoro, masaka are banyarwanda, sebambule and kabula are banyankole, kyagwe are bagisu,

    So who are the baganda you pride yourself of. it is better you know your history well than just marauding with empty minds, so who would support a kingdom where some one will be enslaved with not rights to say ngwe to the kingdom enchlons.

    Buganda’s agenda was well known the day the british stepped in Uganda, and the baganda thought they would use the british to get freedom to make own state, the british noted that buganda was not one tribe as you would want me to put it, it was of many communites wth varrying culture, and also these commuties were enslaved to be called bangada not out of their own wish but forced to be so, so buganda could not evena t one point be placed under consideraton for an independent state.

    We know the anglican province of the church of out of uganda was at mengo but the headquarters was chased to set its head quarters at nakasero on the same ground.

    they wanted to call their currency nsimbi meaning money but it failed they made sure that the catholic church is never lead by a non muganda and up to now they wanted it that way and the head quateres in in rubaga, they know makerere university in in buganda and other major universites are in buganda, they know that major scientific research insititutes are n buganda, the hydro power is in buganda, they know that kampla best is very commerlial and is in buganda, entebbe international airport is in buganda, state house is in buganda, good schools are in buganda, the soils are rich and can sustain them agriculturally, radio uganda is in buganda,

    now they WANT CBS AND RADIO BUGANDA TO PROPAGATE THEIR ILL THINKING WHILE THEY 4GET THAT BUGANDA BUGANDA IS SMALL AND NOW WE ARE TALLKING OF EAST AFRICAN FEDERATION. Buganda no longer has any clout to positive thinking so they only need to be ignored and we push ahead with greater and better issues that affect ugandans as a whle than buganda all the time. how about if all other communities in uganda demanded what buganda agitates for, what would be the result, one uganda or small disorganised and backward communities in former uganda. Hey guys knw what is best for uganda and not mediocrisy!

    Buganda thinks that all the public infrasture in their region means that it is their sweat, they would not think ig ceceding before they think of the repercussion ahead of the unforeseen. MAY BE i WONT BE ALIVE THEN! GOD FORBID!

  3. Chief Bwanika,
    i like the issues you bring. I propose you go back on this article and focus on points without emotions. There are good points. may be we need to look and what other services have been provided in the social sector. look at the impact population has had on the service sector. and may be the globalisation phase.
    but i agree you have a right to be angry. and you just want to save Baganda only by suceding? the rest can perish, no you at least need than as a market or potato growers and milk producers,….
