Well.. Mr. Sunday, M7 or the Old man with the hat has run this lap to many times and the sad truth is… that he has nothing new to offer. He got nothing, nada to prove or deliver. This man has shown his character and how he rules over the years. Things will not get better. No, they will only get worse.
President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni will only show the Republic two things in the up-coming term. These are death and destruction.
The deaths we are already seeing and it will come steady. The republic is using the security apparatus with full force and impunity. There is no wiggle room or justification anymore. It is just a total attack on anyone and anybody who dares to associate or be active in certain spheres of society. There is no space or possible other way to see. The drones or “Panda Gari’s” is the truth of this. The same is the safe-houses, the use of the army, Special Force Command and other outfits to hunt, abduct, detain and even kill on orders of the state.
The destruction is more for us mere mortal who follows from afar. Except more devastating news that the state is crippling economy, rising interests rates and lacking forex reserves. The state will not get funds as it is sanctioned. The state will be poor and the loan repayments are to high in comparison to the domestic revenue. The revenue collected from new taxes will not service the short-fall between it either. As the general spending is too high with the huge patronage and expensive beneficiaries of the state needs to be greased. If not the President and his elite will struggle to be active. This is why things will become even more dire with time.
That is why he will not bring hope or steady progress. The President doesn’t have the trust or allies securing his bank. The State House doesn’t have a wand to settle old debts or re-issuing grace periods. The President has tried to sell himself as a fighter against terrorism and be a operator of brigades for peace-keepers. However, that only take you so far.
At some point, all the death and destruction will turn against him. When everyone is struggling. When the elites and the decreasing middle-class isn’t feeling any development. The time when the ones who accepted the plights of others are seeing that everyone is going hand to mouth. When all government schemes are eaten by high ranking officials and not serving the general public. There is not money for light-bulbs at public schools, but ministers can buy imported luxurious goods. They can wear expensive suits, fresh Italian leather shoes, one of kind cell-phone and jewellery.
That’s why the President and his party has nothing really to offer. They will only continue their rampant self-destructive ways to further feed their cause. These folks only are there for eating themselves. The President has said his nobody’s servant, but works for himself. That is why you shouldn’t expect for him to care.
Museveni will not make a difference now. That time is long gone. Now, he will only order death and destruction. Right now he will only torment people and cause more suffering for plenty. It will get worse. Expect hyper-inflation, lack of goods and other hiccups, which they will make all sort of excuses over.
The state who loans to pay salaries and do the basics. Will sooner or later deplete the warehouses and cripple the economy. It is just a matter of time before civil servants aren’t paid. Teachers, nurses and others are going for months without pay. While the soldiers and key security outfits are covered to safeguard the regime. Don’t be shocked if this is coming. With so many years of greed and stagnation. It is at this point… that the never finished revolution starts to eat its own. It is tragic to say so, but we are soon there.
Museveni is reckless and brutal. That is why his willing to take this far. This is why he does, because it hasn’t cost anything in past, but soon he needs to do it. Why? Well, he wants to save his own skin and kin. As the battle for breadcrumbs will arrive and true survival comes for the wealthy too.
That is why he will only continue to deliver death and destruction. This is his steady progress and securing your future is all about. Peace.
