For someone who has said everything and commented about everyone. You would think he would look into advice and policies before opening his mouth, alas that is not the case. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, addressed the Parliament like an open book and without any hesitation. None idea to stupid or to hard to achieve. There we’re no person whose place in the state couldn’t be addressed by him either. As his achievements and his works shouldn’t be shattered even. There is always root causes back to colonial times and because of the British. It is not him and his works behind no, no, that is lie in the eyes of Museveni.
He promised again CCTV Camera’s that is a promise that reappear every time some significant dies or assassinated. Because that is a costly budget post and eats of the bribes needed for the constant cronyism. A new one was the Fingerprinted ID Guns, that is a good idea, but with Forensic Laboratory, does the state has enough resources or even digital structure to pull it off?
He again promised registered number-plated helmets which is processed and in the registry. Who will actually do it and what it will cost. Who knows at this point, but some nut-job in the civil service will in the end crunch the numbers. Alas, the magical enterprise is also banning hoodies, and hoods from drivers of boda-boda and vehicles in general. Because you become a villain and a gangster for wearing one. Wonder if he will ban the burka’s and other head-wear like hats? Since the law should be equal, that everything covering the eyes should be illegal and when you cannot recognize the person. It is a no-go as the driver of the moving object.
As he continues the assault on boda-boda’s he wanted them to have specialized digital number-plates. So if the owner did something, they could easily find it in the registry. However, does this solve it if they tries to cover the plate or even take them off before the deed. Therefore, the exercise itself might futile, even some criminals might interchange number-plates so they can pin the crime on someone else. That is why the possible use of this is questionable at best. But having a registry for ownership of boda-boda is good in all sense and purpose of a state.
You know he really has thought through a new idea when he the name of the Canine Unit is being established to hunt for the criminals stealing produce like Coffee and Tea in the rural areas. This means a separate police unit with dogs will sniff after possible produce stolen from farmers. Instead of looking into the gangs or the ones trading-off the ill-gotten goods, they are looking into minor offenses with a new mighty barking unit. Such a Noble idea!
Therefore, listening to Museveni for advice at this point is hard. Because he has said and pledged the same sort of stuff before. Like the CCTV and the massive registration of anything considering Boda-Boda’s. Not thinking of the implications, neither of the cost or whose job it is book-keeping it. That always comes in the aftermath and is the Ministries problem. Not his problem.
Secondly he comes with the weird as topics of a Canine Unit for the Police Force to sniff out agricultural produce. Not having dogs to sniff out cocaine or illegal drugs. No, sniff after coffee and cash-crops in the villages and in rural areas. They will have killer and kick-ass dogs sniffing into oblivion.
There is never a dull day in the mind of Museveni. It cannot be and neither anything spotted in his mind, that is dumb. Because his solutions is always golden. He is like MIDAS. Everything turns to gold.
Are you ready for dogs sniffing after coffee in Ibanda? Museveni is… Peace.
