How the State weakens the communities

Standard

Sometime back I did a survey in Luwero. I moved on bicycles and foot from Nakaseke to Kiwoko. I went inside villages and visited relatives and friends. Some 17 years after the war, people were in total fear. All the people I met never wanted to hear anything about NRM – that is in Luwero.
They lost a lot of people. And they know, had it not been for NRM their loved ones would be alive today. One elder man lost all children. As he saw me arriving the first thing he told me was that all my children are “lying their” dead. I told him I wanted to come back to the village – as the rest of villagers told me – was that it was dangerous and meaningless – they thought the war was still going on!!
This is exactly what is happening in Atiak to Gulu. In West Nile people are very guarded since they fear any retribution as a result of Amins era.
a similar survey in Masaka established that their misery on squabbling by the Democratic Party who actually held power. If you ask any person in Kampala Markets who has held these people back – they will tell exactly who by name.

Political parties in the opposition do merely not understand the issues and political topology. Do you here any politician seriously talking about corruption, murder of children, theft, and poverty NO why because they earn from the chaos.
The only solution is for the people to turn their loyalty to their local traditional leaders and culture to save us from Political Corruption by politicians. Culture will always be in contradiction with political ideologism.

What is the chronological history of elected members of parliament in Luwero (Bulemezi), Kyadondo, Acoli (entire), West Nile and Masaka? So what are the political party issues really? and why aretalkng about NRM

In Luwero, I know of Victoria Mwaka, Kisamba Mugerwa, Kiddu makubuya, Rose Namayanja, Abraham Byandala, Kisiki etc all NRM

Who are the MPs in Acoli land Reagan Okumu, Mao, Latigo, odongo otto, Ocenge Penytoo

Who are the MP in Masaka, John Kawanga, Lule Mawayi, Ssekandi, Mugerwa Sauda, Balintuma Nsambu  Maurice Kagimu

So I am asking you how come that we still have the same party in power?

  1. I fail to click Bwanika’s point. Does he want us to forget what happened to thousands of people before our own eyes?Who will forget how their sons and daughters were butchered? Of course not. The fear in those elder’s eyes, is real and it would not go away until they join the relatives they lost three decades ago.

    Talking about political topology, I only wish you don’t suggest that anyone should politik with the deaths of parents, leaving children orphaned – many died as they ran away from the enemy – and for your information – even those who made it to the NRA camps, were unfortunately used as killing machines?

    That Bwanika is suggesting politicians to use Luwero for their votes, is proof enough that he is not a son-of Luwero, and if he is, he was not in the triangle when atrocities were being carried out in this graveyard of thousands of Ugandans. The scar of Luwero, brother Bwanika, is not something to earn political capital but a shame that befell this country, which we shall remember for generations.

    It was very insensitive of you reminding those elders, you allude to, the painful memories of their children and relatives who were butchered like goats. I am sure no honourable person will use Luwero to politick. The only way forward was Otunnu’s suggestion – an inquest into the massacre so as everyone involved in this conflict would come out clean (or dirty). Those found guilty, they should apologise to us and we shall forgive them.

  2. Mao a human and person hit the road

    Is there a political difference between the parliamentary and presidential elections.

    Mao a human and person not a politician should be in the slums of Mbarara, Kinoni , Kahiki Ntungamo towns and dialog with Banyankole to understand why waragi and charcoal burning are a common preoccupation than cattle farming, education and industry.

    Mao go to Bamunanika, Namasale in Bulemezi and converse with people why 27 year after Luwero war Luwero is as it is.

    Mao should be in Atuturu and invite a dialog with the citizens why healthy care facilities can’t work.

    Mao should visit Kaiso, Bulisa,Tonya and visit fishing villages and markets and ask the people why their fishing trade has not peaked and still as it was 40 years ago!

    Mao should create a dialog with people in Bukoloto Bugerere, why pineapples grown in their region have not been processed and why they no longer can get more from their coffee, and bananas are no longer a viable crop in nrm Uganda.

    Mao should not struggle for space at city square it is counterproductive.

    Mao a human and person not a politician should visit once vanilla and cocoa farms in Kiswera Namataba, Mbalala Mukono, and converse with people what happened to their crop.

    Mao should go down in Ntwetwe Kiboga and explain why their road is still unpaved.

    Mao should be in kamusala or kobwin Kumi and dialog with the people if they do not have enough meat what happened to their cows.

    Mao should go to Kapeeka, and ask people why Bumba has not given them a milk cooling plant as those in Ankole.

    Mao should go to the slums of Bwaise, Kampala; Kyanja, Nyendo Masaka and inform the people that the state has a duty to support them build houses.

    Mao should not visit Njeru or Bugembe to fight nrm but to converse with the people why industry is not back in Jinja

    Mao should be in Kidera Kamuli or Namufuna, Busembatia to understand what the people want to live a worthy life.

    Mao should be in Nagongera , Butaleja, Mukuju why new districts have created division among the same people and what he can do for them.

    The same applies to Abed Bwanika, Hussein Kyanjo, Bidandi Ssali for parliamentary democracy it, The law of increasing political party size” that holds concentration and centralization of political ideology are intrinsic to the process of party growth and that as a single political enterprise expand it become complex, muIti-organisational with elaborate vertical beliefs – ideological deepening embedded in people’s aspiration, desires and wishes

    Olara Otunnu, Miria Obote: humans and persons must dialog with people in Busiro, Bulemezi and Buddu, Mawokota and Kyagwe, them as humans and individual persons can do heal past political mistakes.

    These dialogs and acknowledgments should be done on village levels.

    Olara Otunnu, Miria Obote and Jimmy Akena should be in villages of Teso, Busoga, Mbale, Lango for a social dialogue not political conversation with the people in local communities on the future of their communities.

    Besides Buganda will go ahead to use international law to gain her independence from the colonial state of Uganda as a ultimate solution to a nation state solution.

  3. Mwami Bwanika,
    What you have have written applies to all politicians. I’m a bit curious why you had to single out Mao for the many examples you have given.

    Bwanika, you are right, in Uganda most of our politicians are the type that does not what to leave the comfort of the city. It is for that reason that all the demonstrations we have had under their leadership have been within Kampala. I have not seen any of them organizing a demonstration in Soroti to demand that the government restocks Teso. None has lead a demonstration in Kayunga to ask government to set up processing plants for pineapples grown in that region.

    But Uganda has also had a few politicians who have left the comfort of Kampala to reach out to those in the most disadvantaged parts of Uganda like Gulu. The Mao on whom you based all your examples is one such politician.

    The kind of person that you have in mind, Mwami Bwanika, if you succeed in getting him/her, will not be different from Mr. Museveni. You are describing a person who believe that it him/her and only him/her that has a solution to all the problems of the people of Uganda. You are describing a person who does not have structures through which all this information can be gathered. Mr. Mao like some few other politicians in the country works with other people and trusts them. He does not have to physically be in all parts of Uganda as a person to get the kind of information that you described in your article.

    I however like your change in attitude towards Mr. Mao. At one time I think you were among those that thought that he was politically finished. Now you seem to imply that he will survive but the party will not. With time, you will hopefully be convinced that both are not under any threat of extinction.

  4. Mr. Bwanika, which party in Uganda would has ever gotten out of its cradle to elect a leader based on meritocracy regardless his ethnicity?
    Look at the founders of FDC and their perennial contestants for the top position. Look at UPC has just moved out of Obote’s family but still has to remain in the North. Look at NRM which has ring fenced the top position for one person. Look at JEEMA and CP. At least FDC stages some sort of competition but candidates have to come from the West as essential and military background is desirable even when most of their votes comes from the North. When Regean Okumu came up, Besigye downplayed him in preference for Amanya Mushega. What does this tell u?
    The ruling class is sanctioned. Given that which party in Uganda would have given Mao a northerner a chance in a situation where its support base is in another region in this case Buganda?
    Do u think this was a coincedence? In politics u can only get how much u are willing to give away and DP will definately outlive Mao and will continue to groom and produce leaders based on meritocracy.

  5. Bwanika, Idi Lubyayi Kisiki is for Bukomanmsimbi formerly Masaka not Luwero or Bulemeezi. He is a mature student at Makerere after nullified thrice by courts for lack of academic qualifications. He first attempted with a college in Nairobi and later Islamic University in Uganda.
