I FIND IT HARD TO GET TO TERMS OF WHO ACTUALLY MUSEVENI IS
I am fortunate to have had a practical experience with Museveni in 1979 when he participated in the removal of President Lule. I was then a student of St. Mary's College Kisubi. News got to us of the removal from office of President Lule. Or reaction like a number of Ugandans was demonstrating. We were fortunate to be intercepted by Museveni who was then Minister of defence. His men surrounded us and he instructed us to get back to the school. from that day on, Museveni became my enemy. I however kept on watching him, unfortunately, many opportunists in Uganda have failed to learn who Museveni is. he has used many of them and they have been left by the road side. Many have helped him and are long dead. The case of king Mutebi is good testimony. Surely, Museveni would give what is due to King Mutebi, but the King does not reside in his official palace, because Government is still using the property meant to house the Katikiiro. The rent due to Buganda has failed to come forth, and the release of a number of properties including land that were taken in 1966. There was a very controversial development when Gilbert Bukenya as Vice President ended up in a shrine for 3 rd term to be granted to President Museveni. Today, still has the courage of standing as an NRM but he has suffered so much for the party. The Speaker of Parliament Hon. Kadaga may not be on good terms with the President simply because she is footing the people's line, and it is only God who knows how far she will go. President Museveni's wish to be always right is a problem for those who have to do assignments as they have to die alone.
