Tamale Mirundi is the perfect match for Nambooze, Lukwago, Segona and Nsambu

Standard
To all Ugandans-at-Heart:

I am a Ugandan hailing from Eastern Uganda. My granfather was born in a family of 8 boys and all his other seven brothers converted to Buganda and even their grand children today are Baganda in the Fumbe Clan. I do not clearly know why my grandfather in particular refused the conversion upon migrating to Kyagwe.

However, as we grew up, he told us that he enjoyed warm relations with the people of Buganda and as such I find myself knowing more about Buganda tradition that my tribe’s tradition. I support each and every other cause that unites the people of Uganda.

However, as a member of Democratic Party, I am rather disappointed with our party members who have chosen to mix politics with culture. I am of the view that people like Nambooze, Sebaana Kizito, Erias Lukwago should steer clear of Mengo and the same should apply to Nsubuga Nsambu, Husein Kyanjo,Semujju Nganda and all other partisan politicians.

I believe that for us who want to support Buganda in its quest for Federo will continue to find it hard to defend its arguments when it is clear that the Mengo Establishment has been eaten up by clear partisan politicians.

For God’s sake, the reason we continue to demonise Tamale Mirundi is because he tries to bring out the distinction between the Kabaka (who is non-partisan) and the Mengo Establishment which has taken to Partisan Politics.

My prayer would be for the Kabaka to sweep out all partisan politicians from Mengo and let them to come to us in Politics in their respective Parties and then the Katikiro(Eng. Walusimbi is not known to be a partisan politician of any Party) can assemble a neutral team to advance and advocate for Buganda interests.

Demonising Joseph Tamale Mirundi will not deliver Federo. Why do we demonise Tamale Mirundi when Peter Mulira and Gilbert Bukenya continuously carry the same message though delivered with a different tone. The tone differs because Tamale Mirundi is a villager living beyond his dreams, Bukenya is a professor of Medicine and Peter Mulira grew up in a decent Family and has attained ivy league Education.

I think we need to bring that into perspective and excuse Tamale Mirundi  and leave him as he is. Museveni is a master at this game and he believes in the old adage that set a thief to catch a thief that is why he chooses to use Tamale Mirundi at a time when Mengo is using Mirundi’s class of Nambooze, Segoona and Lukwago.

It would have been a different story if Mengo had been using people like  Prof. Frederick Ssempebwa to advance its cause. This also agrees with Solomon’s proverb that give a foolish answer to a foolish question. When Mengo sets the stage professionally, Museveni will be challenged to match the standard and issues will be discussed.

Segoona Lukwago, Nambooze Nsambu and Mirundi may differ in age and may hail from different parts of the Kingdom, but they are the images of one character and therefore must be dumped by their bosses because their rhetoric is toxic and intolerant.

Thank you! Ssabasajja Awangale.

  1. Thanks, Ssebo Egesa
    I will differ with your opinion on almost everything.

    People who potray themselves as Ugandans like you have failed to enlighten us what Uganda means. Maybe if you did this most of us who look at ourselves as Baganda will buy into your message.
    The people you are accusing of mixing culture and politics are patriotic Baganda fighting for the rights of Buganda. Is that politics or culture? When Lukwago speaks about Buganda issues he is speaking as a Muganda and he has all the rights to do so, the same applies to Namboze, Ssegonna etc.

    You may think that Museveni is the master of the game,But which game are you talking about? What is the point off getting a Muganda who we all know is just a mouthpiece to express your views? That is called “cowardice”. If Museveni is brave enough let him come out and stand infront of the Baganda and say what Mirundi says.”You may fool the people sometimes but you cannot fool them all the time.” He is certainly not fooling me probably he is fooling you. But not many Baganda.

    If Museveni was the master of the game he should have realised that the Kabaka is not only a and cannot only be cultural leader. He got himself into a mess that has forced him to be another Obote-Idd Amin. He is trying desperately to manage the situation but its a matter of time before Buganda gets what it wants. To people like you (Ugandans) just pray that they(Baganda) stop with Federo, but if you are wise i would not put my money against Buganda eventually demanding sovereignty.

    What the people of other parts of Uganda have got to understand is what and who the Baganda are what they want and like Archbishop Lwanga said negotiate with them. Anything else is a waste of time.

    Museveni may be the master of the game but its a fools game.

  2. Augustine Mukasa surely you don’t know what you are saying. What you portray is sheer ignorance and pity. The whole Uganda knows how baganda shift grounds and is one Muganda in (Mirundi) has come out to tell you the truth about yourself, you call him a villager.
    All I see in you is like any other of your kind, who are on rampage of wild thinking or day dreaming. It’s fools game (like how you like terming it) which Buganda is pursuing of sovereignty. I wish you luck.
