Well, the Museveni Wealth Creation Tour of 2019 is continuing and the stories, the endless endorsements in every creek, corner and by everyone breathing is there. I am anticipating a vote for the almighty by the association of goats, wild boars and guinea pigs by the end of next month.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is preparing for 2021, but cannot he just start to do so for the 2026 or the next after that? Since his already doling money and asking for favours like he always do. The President can offer more City Statuses and create more districts. So, that we all can be confused and also the Electoral Commission, so that it cannot see the difference between a previous sub-county and the new district in Kaabong. That is just what is up.
The National Resistance Movement and Government of Uganda, acts like this the new normal. That the President is running around like it is no tomorrow, even when the EC have told that no one should campaign before the Elections Road Map, which is a saga in itself. Not that Bosco or Jajja listens, but we couldn’t expect that from a man with advanced age. These people usually doesn’t listen to younger folks, but gives them lectures. Just like this president does all the time.
That is why the NRM, if it was honest, if it was sincere, would already endorse Museveni for 2026. Even if it many years in advance. Well, 2019 is only two years in advance of the General Election of 2021 and by this count its only 7 years ahead. A little over one term and a bit. Just like it’s a bit and then its polls again.
Well, we know this will not happen, because that would be foolish. Even if it foolish to have the same sole candidate, the same flag-bearer as chairman for 33 years and counting. Well, his the guiding star, the only one close to God and the only one with an vision. So, forgive me for not understanding his place on planet earth. No one can pass his being, his position nor his grace. That is why his the eternal fountain of honour, the one mere mortals only shall ask favours from.
Therefore, if the mere mortals are wise, they could start endorsing him for 2026 to ensure and show loyalty 7 years in advance. That will show the world, the district, the sub-county and their baby mama, that they are genuine supporters of the President. Not like these other fools, who only pledge two years in advance. The people had better show support and now, as they need to get the golden touch, the vision and enlightenment from his almighty now.
No time to throw away. Time to do it now. Peace.
We can lie to ourselves, we all do it now and then, and even the most holy of us does it, but acts like saints. Nevertheless, the realities are hard-hitting and not as people tend it too be. In the recent days, there been steady scandals in two institutions connected to the government of Uganda. This being the Bank of Uganda and Uganda Telecom Limited. Both whose place is vital and both under “ownership” of the state.
They have very different roles in society, as one is the Reserve Bank and the one that follows direct guidelines of the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development, while the same Ministry owns the other! That is why there are some of the same aspects, as the stories are pouring out.
The BoU is rocked by lack of due diligence, lack of minutes, lack of working after protocol and procurement. The UTL is lacking leadership, lacking structure or even basic control from the state. Both is run by the MoFPED and still has the same issues. It is like they are two ugly siblings and none of these bastards can get a date.
The BoU is the epitome of corrupt behaviour from buying pens, securing quick-fix funds for trading commercial banks and so on. While the UTL have shady-back-door deals with willy-nilly abroad in Mauritius or Nigeria, even some skeletons in Libya. Still, even if Hon. Evelyn Anite tries every avenue and use all parts of the dictionary, she still doesn’t have the powers to sack the ones running UTL, because the MoFPED is involved and who knows how the President Museveni micromanages these state owned enterprises. Since his known for guidance everywhere in the Republic. That is why Hon. Anite had to send a letter to him to further her cause in the UTL saga.
We can lie to ourselves, but not that it does any good. At this point, the involvement of the state, the known actors and only the small-fries are getting caught. The ones doing the heist, doing the handshakes and getting the kick-backs from there is working directly with the State House. That is well known and not unknown, they even ask permission before doing so. This is what they do. Its only the ones who doesn’t ask who ends in the files of various departments fighting corruption. Even if they end up there, they might lose the paperwork or minutes before investigation, as the loyal subjects clear the house. So, that the big-man on top, doesn’t get humiliated.
This is just what is up and what is going down. These men who runs these SOEs are allowed to what they do, because the higher power let them do it and they are all eating. Especially, when the “high above” sanctions it, its all cool, but if he doesn’t get a cut; than there is an issue and someone have to pay. That is the end-game, that is why it continues and why it floats like this. Not because this is a healthy practice or even a way that the state should govern, but this is what they are known to do.
The UTL and BoU have similar issues, they are doing similar acts, but with different enterprises. We can act a fool, but that will still not save the face of the ones running it. Sooner or later, someone will fall on the sword of their master. Right now its not needed, but when these two institutions needs a boost of confidence, someone will swallow their pride and do their last act of mercy. That is just how it goes. We just don’t know who will fall and for what cause, other than saving the high above from humiliation. Peace.
