“I was going for a meeting like this, they told me that something (protests) was happening in Kampala and that I should ring there and also stop my campaigns. I said I won’t interrupt my plans with that nonsense. I said they will handle them………I was sure no one can disorganise Uganda because I know we have a strong army” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in Kapchorwa in Sebei Sub Region (27.11.2020).
The President sends a clear message to the grand public. That their grievances and their suffering isn’t important part of his plans. They are just nonsense and an interference to his plans. This says a lot about how he values the citizens and the civilians.
When a man in power, who is the commander-in-chief and the head of state can say this about the civilians protesting. You know that he doesn’t see the public as important. They are just useful pawns and underlings to him. These are the peasants that are supposed serve him and acknowledge the big-man. They are not supposed to raise their voice or even question his orders.. Since his the colonial overlord currently reigning over this enclave.
The President who is in-charge of the army and police. The ones taking up weapons, using tear-gas and directly ordering law enforcement on the streets to quell the riots and demonstrations. That man calls the expression and frustration with the system “nonsense”.
The old man with the hat still doesn’t send condolences or any sort of grief to all the families that lost their loved ones during those days. Not, these deaths and extra judicial killings by the state isn’t worth his time. These lives could just die, because they interfered with his plans…
Does this old man hear himself and talk to his handlers before he speaks at all?
This is garbage. This is actually hot-garbage. The sort of infuriating and insulting attitude that only serves his own agenda not the betterment of the Republic. A sort of arrogance, that isn’t worthy of his office. No accountability or acceptance of blame for what went down. Where he doesn’t care about the voices or the reason for why it happened.
Just calling it nonsense. Shows his hubris… which is always important to show. Never show any humility or grace towards the ones who got caught in the cross-fire, hit by a stay-bullet or was directly aimed at during the riots. No, these people are worthy of his time. They are just nonsense anyway and the army can handle them. Because, who needs to have their civil rights and their rights to demonstrate. No…
Civilians and peasants needs to extend their tax-base, earn money to feed the army, but not be shielded from that same army. No, that is nonsense. This army isn’t there to protect the civilians, no it is there to protect the elite and the President. The people should know that and it is clearly evident by how they have acted during the recent days.
It is not the Republic for all the people, but a Republic serving Museveni. Peace.
