Opinion: Jajja should just bite the bullet…
“All of you are crying that Government money does not reach you. The mistake is on your side. With the bullets that NRM sent for you to shoot, you focus on the wrong people. You vote people to Parliament who cannot help you” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 10th April 2019 at Kampala Women’s Day Celebration
If you would ever wonder if Bosco, the Jajja of the Republic would show mercy or care for thoughts, which is not his own. Put statements like these on the wall. As it shows his shallow mind and his real motivation.
For President Museveni, the Multiparty Democracy was never the ideal. It was always the motive to make the Republic into the vision of the Movement System. Because through that he could control it and own it.
Yoweri has been constant with this and it shows all the time. He is steady on this vision and the move to silence, stop or even hurt the ones that crosses his way. That is what the President does, that is why the President says, he doesn’t give funds too or says even he has taken districts out of the maps. As the public voted for the wrong party. This is something the President has said in the past. Therefore, what he said today isn’t new, just another quote to his narrow-minded world-view.
He blames the public for not getting state services, because they voted for the wrong people. The wrong people, meaning the opposition like Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and FDC MPs in the Kampala Metropolitan Area. The MPs from Kampala there are 4 MPs from FDC, 4 MPs Independent and 1 MP from the Democratic Party (DP). Therefore, the Capital City have voted for everything else, but NRM MPs.
That is what he said today. He did this, as he thinks people have forgotten how little he cared for even giving the public to chance to vote in the General Election of 2015. However, I do and I know didn’t give them much way. That is why the public didn’t regard much for the elections in Wakiso or Kampala during the last elections.
So, Mr. President, your showing your disregard, not only for multiparty democracy, but also for Statesmanship and grace. Instead of showing mercy and solitude to their acts of choosing other people, than your hand-picked cronies. They voted for other representatives, which was their choice. They just happen to other, than the ones who you saw fit at the time. Because, you expect blind submission and love. However, that is not how the world works. This is also why you lost to Sam Kuteesa in 1980 Election, but we don’t need to discuss about that.
Ragga Dee was nothing compared to Lukwago. We know this, but you act like the Golden Boy of Gen. Salim Selah would change the Capital City. But we know differently. Don’t act a fool, Mr. President. But in this case you do.
Maybe, you Mr. President should get better people to represent you and your causes, whatever they are? They are lost in the whirlwind of time and surely, unless eating GAVI funds was a part of the 10 Point Programme. Who knows what your motivation are? Except for running for life and micro-managing every street of the Republic. That is who you are and acts like.
Your showing your lackluster value of peoples choices, of democracy and also of governance. As you are indirectly saying, that your punishing the districts or counties, where the opposition is represented. This in part show how little your mind is and how much of tyrant you are. Since, you cannot must courage to understand, why people don’t love you or your ways. However, that maybe got lost when you stole milk as a kid or when you went to the Bush. Who knows? Only you I suppose.
Surely, the Republic deserve a fair and respectable leader, not someone entitled as you. You think your the only man with a vision, I beg to differ. There are various of people who has a vision for the Republic. They might even get the Republic into the 5th Industrial Revolution…. Peace.
