Opinion: NRM Isolated Youths is fishing for relevance
The National Resistance Movement – Isolated Youths is run by the Chairman Ibrahim Buyinza, whose a former reporter at the New Vision. He is now on the sole mission for finding his cash-cow. Just like the previous balloon-organization NRM Poor Youth. Surely, the statement written by the NRM Isolated Youth is just special. However, I am pounding the reasoning for becoming an organization now.
That Buyinza wants relevance is clear. Just like the NRM Poor Youth. Surely it happens just in the close window before the election. The mushrooming organizations associated with the NRM in hopes of handouts and job opportunities. This is happening as the NRM is already making other organizations to battle the possible rising popularity of other opposition parties and pressure groups. Therefore, the NRM are really spiralling out and the structure seems a bit fluid.
A piece of the Statement dropped today:
“The majority Isolated Youths in Uganda are hindered with the country’s economic limbo that has disabled the large labour force to engage in the productive market. This has evidently attributed to the escalating unemployment thus substantiating radical poverty amongst the youths. “We are Isolated maybe because of tribe and religion.” Buyinza said. NRM is now operating against the principal of impartiality and nuetrality, equity and justice. The youths thus need to ambivalently demand their generational Youths should improvise means or defecting their support from a regime and leadership which is against Mass Low’s Hierarchy of Needs Theory. According to NRM ISOLATED YOUTHS National Chairman Buyinza Ibrahim in an Executive meeting yesterday” (Buyinza Ibrahim – ‘Generational Obligation’ 08.12.2019).
Buyinza hadn’t dropped this on activists groups on Facebook, if it wasn’t for fishing for relevancy. Because, he will not have the hot-line to New Vision any-more nor being relevant for NBS Television.. Therefore, he had to fish there to show existence.
However, the NRM Isolated Youth seems like a fishing expedition. It is like the NRM Poor Youth. We can await the NRM Isolated Youths will crash the NRM Parliamentary Caucus or NRM CEC or something to gain relevance. But they will be arrested like the Poor Youth did. Than, people will notice them. Not like the NRM Isolated Youths is scheduling demos or campaigns for their causes. Neither showing their structure to the world either. So, it seems like a briefcase organization developed and run by Buyinza.
Therefore, don’t expect magic. Don’t expect this to be a vital one. It will be a side-show and someone who will cry loud, when the waters are dry and no funds are dripping on the organization. Since, that is the reason for it all happening. Not like the Isolated Youths exists, because its really fighting. Since, there is no proof that the organization even tries to do something vital and changing.
Buyinza really needs to prove that. Heavy is the head and it cost to carry it. It is not like when he worked on orders at the New Vision. He has to carry itself and make his own way. That is not done by dropping statements on activists groups on Facebook. Peace.
