Here is what Museveni has done since 1986 until now in 2014! 



If this doesn’t make your mind wonder and also how come? Its not more built since 1986..

That is something we all should ask ourself and the NRM government. But, I don’t think they will answer in a proper way which the truth isn’t massaged into a perfect message that fit their view and make everything into a golden goose. Where they will tell that in just a few years it have a economy that is of a middelclass county and be without corruption. Trust me, you will hear that in the near future. An so many times that your ears hurt!




One thought on “Obote Government (1966-1971) versus Museveni Governments(1986-2014)”

  1. Given the classroom attendance of current leaders compared to. H. E. Amin Dada, the latter performed much better than these kleptomaniacs.
