PRESS RELEASE:For all Baganda in consultations with all Ugandans in Diaspora

Standard

PRESS RELEASE
We the Baganda in the diaspora in consultation with other Ugandans convened on 4th November 2011 at 20-30 London Road, Barking. London (United Kingdom) and resolved to demand what the government of Uganda owes Buganda within a period of sixth months from today.

The acrimony between Buganda and the central Government stems from the failure of the NRM government to honour Buganda’s demands. These demands are part of an agreement between Buganda and the NRA/M reached as a prerequisite for Buganda’s involvement in the 1981 Luweero Bush war.

The resolutions are:
1. Buganda and other regions of Uganda be given full federal status as recommended by the Odoki report where 97% in Buganda and 65% in Uganda demanded for federal status.
2. The central government pays the 23billions Uganda shillings debt it owes Buganda in Rent and returns all Buganda properties including land.
3. The government releases with immediate effect all people detained without charge since September 2009.These include all Ugandans detained during the Kayunga and walk to work demonstrations.
4. The NRM government stops fragmenting Buganda region into unnecessary districts with the ultimate aim of weakening Uganda.
5. The government stops the rampant corruption, nepotism and marginalisation of sections of Ugandans.
6. If these demands are not met within the stipulated six months period, we shall announce the next step.

  1. Surely, fellow Sisters and Brothers of Uganda,

    It has to be restored as it was before in 1962. Then we shall have sanity, freedom and peace in Uganda. We need a paradigm shift. We need a destruction of the warped thinking of unitary that has been forced on us, imposed on us, now by foreigners, non Ugandans, it has not worked and cannot work. We need a reconstruction of our mindsets for a federation system as God instituted it for us in our groups in which we belong and identify like a family unit. Have you ever seen a “katogo”/ melting pot family where anyone from anywhere claims to belong in it and is not rejected? Do the genes look alike? Does the DNA match? Do they even look alike? Do they share a history that is cherished? Can it even work?

    If all non human creation can do it, why can’t we humans with intelligence achieve it? Why are you so easily fooled?

    Fellow Ugandans, we should look at how God ordained the world. It is in natural principles that create a harmony from all the different chords.
    There is no discord! Get in sync(hronisation) with God’s ordination. Why would you fall gullible to lies that people concoct? That are unnatural to the natural order? Can a cow walk like a duck? Jesus asked, can an orange produce a mango? Do not be deceived by genetic engineering or genetically modified foods. They are not life creating but life destroying! The same goes with life destroying politics. Vampire sucking blood politics and ideologies that have been proven wrong time and time throughout history. Politics built on greed and envy! Politics built on strife – okufuba! Politics built on shedding of sacred and innocent blood! ” God created us in Their own image. Genesis 1:26-28

    He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground.” Genesis 4:10.

    Revelation 6:10, “They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Revelation 6:10

    Numbers 35:33 “‘Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it.”

    Can anyone dismantle what God has constructed and live in peace?

    Empires have been built and destroyed for they have been life suffocating. NRM supporters and others, wake up! For if you don’t you will surely be destroyed by the same mechanisms you are using to destroy those you hate and those who oppose you! Milton Obote did not die a happy or prosperous man! Neither his followers! Nyerere Kambarage did not die a happy man? What didn’t they have in power?

    Do not be deceived! Listen to God’s prophets! We don’t come in the shapes, sizes or colours or gender you know or think about! But we are and we shall continue to proclaim that unpopular message. John has chosen the weak of this world to glorify Himself always. Katonda yalonda ebinafu byensi aswaaze ebyamaanyi. Oluyimba 334 Enjatula. We are men and women who have a conviction and we shall not rest for the spirit of God is upon us. Jeremiah 1:1 ff.

    We were not created to conquer one another, but to love one another just as you love yourself. It is a command.

    A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”
    (John 13:34 ESV)
    “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
    (John 15:12 ESV)

    Get on board God’s politics for people to govern themselves, not outsiders. Let us chose capable men and women among us. Many people in Uganda have lost all morality for no one cares what they are doing. People are no longer ashamed to do evil, wickedness and corruption for no one really knows them! Tebakyaswala! Tebakyawemuka! You only build and keep a reputation amongst those who know you well from your father’s or mother’s home. People are floating from one end of the lake to another – nga ekiddo. Leero bali Luzira, enkya bali Buvuma! People are not rooted in anything, or anywhere for they have rejected our natural God given principles and laws. Do you need Bazungu to give you Workshops and Seminars like you don’t know what to do? Like you don’t know what went wrong? Confess, repent and arise.

    13 The next day Moses took his seat to serve as judge for the people, and they stood around him from morning till evening. 14 When his father-in-law saw all that Moses was doing for the people, he said, “What is this you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit as judge, while all these people stand around you from morning till evening?”
    15 Moses answered him, “Because the people come to me to seek God’s will. 16 Whenever they have a dispute, it is brought to me, and I decide between the parties and inform them of God’s decrees and instructions.”
    17 Moses’ father-in-law replied, “What you are doing is not good. 18 You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone. 19 Listen now to me and I will give you some advice, and may God be with you. You must be the people’s representative before God and bring their disputes to him. 20 Teach them his decrees and instructions, and show them the way they are to live and how they are to behave. 21 But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. 22 Have them serve as judges for the people at all times, but have them bring every difficult case to you; the simple cases they can decide themselves. That will make your load lighter, because they will share it with you. 23 If you do this and God so commands, you will be able to stand the strain, and all these people will go home satisfied.”
    24 Moses listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said. 25 He chose capable men from all Israel and made them leaders of the people, officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. 26 They served as judges for the people at all times. The difficult cases they brought to Moses, but the simple ones they decided themselves.
    Exodus 18:13-26

    Note: These were not non Israelites! They were from the twelve tribes of Israel – from rank and file.

    Rev. Jessica

    “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
    Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

  2. The only true Liberty for the people of Buganda in this world of 7 Billion people where resources are becoming too scarce would be to secede from Uganda, this would give chance to the descendants of Kintu to enjoy our God given heritage. Why keep begging something that truely belongs to us. Its like we are not quite sure its our right to demand a system of Governance that we cherish (Federalism), if we cant get it, then let us acquire it by force.
