Opinion: Lt. Col. Nakalema aim wrong with her 4th December march

Lt. Colonel Edith Nakalema has today launched the first public march sponsored by the outfit she’s running. That will be a state owned march on the 4th December 2019 with the special guest, His Excellency, the Fountain of Honour, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

What is really colourful about this enterprise is the message and the slogan of it all. That is the beautiful wording of “A Corruption-Free Uganda: It Starts With Me”. It is really rich coming from the State House. Really ironic and special, that the unique Anti-Corruption Unit of the State House are usually catching the small fishes, but not touching the kitchen cabinet nor anyone in close association with the President.

That’s why its very rich of the State House and its outfit to have a theme like this. Like the people don’t know whose doing it and whose letting the grand corruption happen. The President has even accepted the Presidential Handshake. He has accepted that businesses get started, get tax-holidays as long as he gets kickbacks. Not like he will let any opportunity of a short-sighted funds go away. Even if it means selling the most prominent building in Kampala, Mabira Forest or anything else. As long as he can get something out of a deal, he will do it eventually.

President Museveni and his handlers will secure that, that’s why his not touched, even with abundance of agencies combatting and securing the government tenders, procurement and budget. However, none of them have ever had the capacity to arrest or charge Amama Mbabazi, Sam Kuteesa, Kahinda Otafiire, Elly Tumwiine and so-on. They are all living lavish, but came out of the bush-war piss-poor. You go figure how their wealth got started.

With this all in mind, the theme should be rewrote, “It Starts with the President”. That would have been accurate. It would have targeted the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and their cronies. Instead, they go after the chicken-thieves and the ones that has no power, no suction or connection within the deep administration. The ones who are rightfully wrong in their actions, misusing local government tenders, creating ghost teachers and whatnot. Still, the biggest culprits, the ones who does it on large scale, the ones who has made and forged the system. They are walking beside the President, they are appointed by him and are untouchables.

That’s why, if the Anti Corruption Unit was sincere, they would have targeted not “me” but the President, Museveni himself. But she did so, she wouldn’t see another day in her office. So, we do understand. She doesn’t want to bite the hand that feed her. We all get that, but if they wanted to be honest. The aim should be at the King, then you best not miss. Peace.

Opinion: President Museveni wants hoes in every area code…

I’ve got hoes, I’ve got hoes

In different area codes (Area), area codes (Codes)

Hoes! Hoes, hoes, in different area codes (Area)

Area codes (Codes)

I’ve got hoes!” Nate Dogg featuring on Ludacris ‘Area Codes’ (2001).

Earlier this month the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Members of Parliaments (MPs) was complaining that the lack of hoes produced in their district would cost them voters in 2021. As the President already had promised the farmers and voters this in November 2015. Now we are four years down the line and still no funds for it. However, he has solved that within two weeks of the complaint. Even if he wrote a letter and asked what happened in 2015.

So What happened?” Well, this has happen:

President Yoweri Museveni has directed the Finance Ministry to raise a supplementary budget worth UGX 80 billion for procurement of 8 million hoes to be distributed to farmers” (NTV Uganda, 29.10.2019).

What is still rich by this, the procurement of 8 million hoes is still lacking the 18 million promised in 2015. This means there is a shortfall of 10 million hoes. Not enough for the estimates done back then. This is patching the hurt, even if it is an expensive cost for a old-school tool for farming. Instead of getting tractors or even better irrigation tools. His securing the small-scale farmers just a tool, which will be destroyed within a few seasons. Not something lasting or changing the circumstances.

Therefore, this is a waste of funds, waste of time to procure and waste of delivery. Only done because the President wants to keep one promise. But he has had plenty more, which he never cared much for to keep. Nevertheless, who can say “no” to some hoes. They needs to be every area code. The President learned that from Ludacris and Nate Dogg. That is another rap.

With this in mind. The President is partly honouring the old pledge of his. But only when the MPs was bitching and in fear of losing their hoes, sorry their voters in their constituencies. Not like the delivery of these are showing proper governing. Because, the Office of Prime Minister never explained why it never was procured, never shown any reason for why it didn’t follow up on the pledge, neither asking for funds in the budgets years later.

That is why its bad to ask for supplementary budgets to fulfil old pledges. This is only done to help prepare and soften the days ahead of the next election. Not because the state really did care. Because of it did. It would have gotten it in December 2015 or at least done something about in 2016, which it didn’t do.

So let me end on how Museveni might be thinking:

Man I’m just scheming on new hoes

I already forgot about my last broad” Rico Love on ‘What About The Rest of Us?’ on the “Southpaw Soundtrack” (2015).

Enough of this. Peace.

The Hoes of 2015 comes to haunt the NRM in 2021!

The distribution of hoes to the communities as promised by President Museveni has divided members of Parliament with sections of the legislators saying it will cost them votes in 2021” (NBS Television 18.10.2019).

On the 20th November 2015 before the General Election and within the campaign period, the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni ordered the Prime Minister and his office to purchase 18 million hoes to 6 million households. With the estimate of 44,700,000 population in the republic and the Uganda Bureau of Statistics Household Survey of 2016/17 said the average amount of people a household was about 5. This means statistically, that there are about 8,940,000 households. This is mere numbers and not the whole package, but it gives you feeling of how many.

Therefore, when the MPs are complaining, the OPM have surely not bought all the promised 18 million hoes. Because, that mean most of them would have been covered, just nearly 3 million household without any. However, there must be short-fall in the amount, as the state cannot deliver to enough regions or district to matter. That is why the MPs are afraid of this.

I can ask like Jajja did in November 2015: “What happened?”.

Because, that this story continues to haunt us in 2019. On the stages and preparations for rallies in 2020 for the General Election in 2021. Surely, this is pure fiction, but sadly our reality. As the Devine powers doesn’t want things to work or succeed. It is a repetition of the mediocre and lazy, lackluster approach to governing. Which is staple with the National Resistance Movement. The party that promise middle-income status and steady progress. But cannot even drop some promised tool on the population.

Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda has had 4 years to deliver 18 millions hoes and still hasn’t finished the task. There been four budgets and four planning stages. Still, it seems like it needs a fifth to get to the finish line. Even with this, there will not hoes for every household nor all families who needs them. As the statistics are not counting the ones living single, the one who has their left the nest and so-on. Therefore, the statistics is lying a bit and just giving a feeling of the state of affairs.

The President and PM has failed. They can come with arguments, but we should ask them: “What Happened?”. Peace.
