I am a crusader for Good Governance. My mission is to contribute to the promotion of Good Governance and more specifically Democracy ideal for Uganda.
At the beginning of democratic reforms in Uganda in 1986, a new legal framework was instituted to ensure that future governments are elected to replace authoritarian regimes of the past. As Uganda move towards the third cycle of elections, there is an increasing despondence with elections as a means of transferring political power. Constitutional safe guards on executive recruitment have been lifted to allow for life president. The Constitutional court has found following the 2006 and 2011 Presidential and Parliamentary evidence of electoral fraud by the incumbent government but failed to overturn the elections. This has led to the loss of faith in the judiciary as an institution for protecting democracy and opposition leaders are quoted as saying that Museveni should be removed by force. Freedom of expression is shrinking. Opposition political parties are threatening to boycott future elections. Museveni and his army commander are quoted as having threatened a military coup if his patronage is challenged. Have the democratic gains Uganda gained since 1986 been eroded? Is Uganda on the verge of returning to violent struggles for political powers? How have the rules for managing political competition and or transferring political power been supervised? Can Ugandans change their government through elections?
