Keeping up with Kaguta S1E19: 9 million radios and running

The government plan for long-distance learning through the provision of the 9 million radios sets is on course, the money is available and those radios will be provided” Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (20.09.2020).

Yet again, the President, the marvel and the relic of the Bush-War is holding another National Speech on the matter of COVID-19 or the Coronavirus. To direct, deflect and buy time… as there are always underlining elements, which are either ditched or forgotten about. The President and his handlers doesn’t look at these or says it isn’t wise.

The President have hold these speeches on a semi-regular since the first lockdown in March. He has prolonged the journey and be careful to open up society. Something he continues, as the elections are getting closer and the usage of the pandemic seems more and more obvious. As he don’t want to open to much. As that would allow the opposition and others to gather more frequent in the time ahead.

Today, I will only digress into the favourite quotes of the evening, as the whole speech is to much. He will pledge, offer tokens, which will not be delivered. Just like the Village TVs and Food Delivery during the first lockdown stages….

Here is the best quotes of the evening:

We plan to distribute radios for distance learning but the parents might take them from the children to listen to disco” – Museveni

Long distance learning will continue. The rest of the world is learning online. This route of distance learning is a very good route, and we will consolidate it” – Museveni

I therefore call NRM members not to fight. Why do you fight? Suppose you lose a tooth? Fighting is useless. Write a letter and send to Tanga Odoi. We shall come and audit” – Museveni

Bars remain closed because most of them are in enclosed areas. But also because drunkards can’t control themselves, and would therefore struggle to comply with Covid-19 prevention guidelines” – Museveni

So, here we are… there are still curfews. Restrictions on bars, pubs and elsewhere. Churches can gather, but with a limited crowd. Also, sports can resume and play, but without any spectators. Gyms and casinos are closed still… months upon months with lockdown.

He can try to play cute and funny about things. However, his still serious about the pandemic. Using it as tools for the up-coming elections. This speech was no different. The promises of radios are re-used and it will be an empty pledge.

This is just another edition of the President. With new directives yet again. Also, defensive…but that is to expect. That he defends the NRM and the NRM Primaries. Even saying staying in line for voting isn’t called a gathering. That shows the foolish of the enterprise of this President.

President Museveni can talk… that’s why its no need to look through the whole speech. This is a little gist. Peace.

Keeping up with Kaguta S1E18: The Documentary….

Well, so there is another one. Would think there have been enough speeches and national addresses on the matter. Just like always, because I don’t care to be to specific or care. I will only address the funniest quotes. Address them and let, bygones be bygones.

There will be seriously pledges that the President cannot commit too. Neither have infrastructure or funds to do. Like he has promised, masks, radios and Village TVs. However, little to non has been given. Only more Presidential Directives and Guidelines, which have to be explained the next day by various of ministries and parastatal’s who has do the bidding to fix.

Therefore, this edition will not be different from President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Who was late to the party, but still delivering his common posho and calling it a day. Also, today he dropped a trailer or a documentary, where undated clips from South Africa and Brazil, where the situation on COVID-19 is dire and harder hitting than in the Republic. A nice scare tactic to ensure him reasons for extended lockdown and continue to block public gatherings.

Favourite Quotes of the Evening:

Like you’ve seen in the video, you notice that many of these countries have so many sick people but they don’t have beds. Because of the firm steps we took, that’s why we have few numbers, much less than beds” (Museveni, 21.07.2020)

We shall not accept anything that threatens life. That is why I involve our scientists in everything I do. We are fortunate to have good scientists. If you attack our scientists, I can tell you to go to hell” (Museveni, 21.07.2020).

Therefore salons shall open, provided they ensure masks for everybody and face shields for the operators, temperature guns, social distancing and no air conditioning” (Museveni, 21.07.2020).

For the bodas, the boda rider shall put on a helmet to cover the face and enclose the mask. The person behind shall have a mask. The rider should record every person he transports. They will start on the 27th of July” (Museveni, 21.07.2020).

With the schools, we have to make a decision before September because that is when the 3rd term is supposed to start. This is a big issue. We are going to put a lot of emphasis on distance learning like providing radios to learners” (Museveni, 21.07.2020).

For the churches, I have asked the scientists to continue consulting with them on how they can meet safely. So for now, let them remain closed” (Museveni, 21.07.2020).

The airport and border points will remain closed until the situation abroad settles down. I know we are losing a lot of money because of tourism, but life is better than wealth” (Museveni, 21.07.2020).

This selfishness is not acceptable and in some cases, we’ll have to confront it. If you don’t care about our country, we shall not care about you. you must care, if you don’t care about us, go to another country. Those threatening to riot, we shall crash you” (Museveni, 21.07.2020):

My 2 cents to this mess:

What we are really seeing is that his proud of all his measures. That the Republic been able to stagnate the Coronavirus. It has cost, but it has been able to stop it by the lockdown. That is why his proud after dropping a documentary about elsewhere today.

We are seeing his defending the scientists. The scientists that finds solutions for him and decisions for him. He follows them or if not his guiding them to make sense.

Today, he will struggle to defend. His opening salons and arcades with strings, also in a weeks time opening up for boda-boda’s. All with measures and needs for both the operators of boda boda’s and the salons. These are now able to open, however the airport and houses of worship is still closed. Like there can be no measures there to stop the spread and scientific reasons for so.

It seems that the President keeps the churches closed, because if that opens than rallies and campaigns can be legal and he wants to keep scientific elections by any means.

Also, he continued the promise of far distance learning and radios for the villages. That shows that the previous promise returns, but still no proof or plan to actually do it. The state has to make up stuff and explain that one.

There will be guidelines made tomorrow. Statement from various of ministries will come out too. To explain the new measures and everything. That is just how things are and some ministers are busy writing to print tomorrow. Peace.

Keeping up with Kaguta S1E17: A hot stone for a hyena

Therefore our scientists have been tasked to audit all the remaining restrictions and advise. In particular, some of the stakeholders have been petitioning that we lift them all” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (22.06.2020).

Another day, another speech. We have been here before and this is the 17th Edition this year of these COVID-19 speeches from President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. If your thinking this is getting old. Then its been like this for over a month and the best thing is that its been less of them of late. Maybe, there is a need for clarifications the rest of the week, but that is standard. That some authority, some ministries and ministers has to clarify and explain what the President said.

So with that in mind, we cannot take this too serious. Since, there will be backlash and will backfire. It is just a matter of how much and who will capture the burden. Some ministers should prepare their pen, their writing game and find solutions quickly to resolve the newly minted guidelines, restrictions or regulations inflicted on the Republic.

Like always, because I don’t want to bore you to death. That we already have the President to do. As he speaks two hours straight and says very little of use. He could have with a favoured made a compact speech and settled for 30 minutes. However, he wouldn’t be himself if he didn’t cover every angle, historically, military and civilian in extraordinary fashion. If he has done that 17 times. Therefore, I will do like always, drop my favourite gems. Discuss them briefly and call that a day.

Just look:

Even me, I began to ask what the curfew was for, if cars were already moving, as long as they are three in the car. However the scientists say the aim of the curfew is to reduce the high risk of nocturnal activities” – Museveni, 22.06.2020)

Don’t be like a hyena which found a woman, sought for meat and was lured by sweetness (Obunuzi) of fat and hot stone. It could neither spit because of Obunuzi nor swallow for the hotness” (Museveni, 22.06.2020).

Boda bodas if allowed to carry people can spread the virus even further because of the numbers of people they carry and the areas they can reach” – Museveni (22.06.2020).

There was the issue of increasing the number of people in private cars. This can be increased to four people in the vehicle but the requirement of masks to all passengers should be maintained” – Museveni (22.06.2020).

With the school population, let us be patient. In the meantime, we are going to launch a big long-distance education programme, certainly through radios. We are going to give free radio-sets to all the homesteads. Radios will soon be distributed” – Museveni (22.06.2020).

After this I gave up, I didn’t care anymore. I’m sure there would be more gems, but the President seems not to change to much anyway. That is why churches is still closed, arcades too. Boda-Boda’s just for cargo and a prolonged curfew.

Empty promises of radios, as the free masks are not there. Neither is the food delivery to all the ones social distancing at their homes. The President haven’t delivered on his promises during these troubling months. He doesn’t have the capacity nor the genuine interest to serve the public. That is proven as he wants more cars, than medicine and pay the frontline workers.

Just like he wanted to save the daughters from drivers in the past. Now he wants to save them from hyenas. He really doesn’t have a positive view of the ladies and their urges, to repopulate earth isn’t a positive vibe and being intimate is also something he got issues with. Maybe, that’s why his hampering on this sort of thing at this given time?

Nothing here was shocking. More of the same. The same spirit, the same old man and therefore, I quit talking. Peace.

Keeping up with Kaguta S1E16: Village TV to the Rescue

If drivers from other countries had not been sent back to their countries of origin and recorded there, we would have had about 800 cases registered today (at least)Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (01.06.2020).

Last time President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni held his traditional and steady National Address was on the 19th May 2020. Therefore, his kept it low for a minute. This is the 16th National Address, which is made in connection with the global COVID-19 or Coronavirus Pandemic.

Nevertheless, there will time to digress, but not today. As standard procedure in this manner. I will not deep dive. Just take my favourite quotes from the speech and drop my 2 cents on the matter. There is so much to life, than listening and analysing another speech word-by-word by the Self-Styled President for Life.

Here we go:

Given that the vulnerable economy is suffering we cannot, therefore, lose earnings from the exports of coffee (by blocking the trucks) “the trucks also bring in raw materials for factories like Mukwano industries” – Museveni (01.06.2020).

Fighters don’t panic, you should persevere in all the necessary efforts that are crucial Museveni (01.06.2020).

So really,there is no need to panic, what we are doing is in order” – Museveni (01.06.2020).

Boda bodas have been agitating to resume work, but no. They cannot practice social distancing because the passenger is too close to the rider. What the boda bodas can do in the least now is to keep quiet & wait until the virus is over” – Museveni (01.06.2020).

If you don’t have the right mask stay home. Be on sunshine for at least one hour a day to get vitamin” – Museveni (01.06.2020).

Government to give two TV sets per village and a radio per household to ease distance learning” – Museveni (01.06.2020).

The provisional food will continue, we have just finished one phase. I appeal to you to stop telling lies, don’t say, “I didn’t get food” when you got” – Museveni (01.06.2020).

Well, there we have it. I will not drop more gems, someone else can collect them all. I am tired of it. Sure, the ones living in the Republic is even more. As there are no clear cut direct message.

What is striking is his continues defence of the truck-drivers and their importance today. However, today he wasn’t afraid of the daughters touching the drivers, maybe that has changed with social distancing. Who knows, right?

Also, he had to drop a proverb on the 1986 and the bush-war, as the perseverance of it lingers today in his mansion and his enriched lifestyle. Living safe and sound in luxury, while most of his citizens and peasants are living in utter poverty.

He has even blocked the boda-boda further, one profession blocked from working. In the past, they were at least allowed to carry things and bob’s for people. Now, they are supposed to be stand-guard and await the cure of COVID-19. They cannot even carry cargo, if I understood the President right.

The issues of masks persist and surprise, surprise the state cannot deliver enough mask on time or in the fashion of need. They will struggle to do this and produce enough of it. The old promises (which is just a few weeks old, actually) is clearly to much to handle.

That is why today is even more rich, as the President has already promised steady food, masks and now will ensure TVs and Radios. There are 140,000 villages, if they are getting two TV’s each that is 280,000 TVs alone. LG and Samsung must pray to the gods if they get this order. Whose donating this or paying this bill? Secondly, isn’t there villages lacking electricity or having steady load-shedding? Last, but not least, wouldn’t that mean the village will congregate around the TVs and not follow the Scientific Social-Distancing?

The TV and Radio thing is a paradigm shift, the sort of Universal Primary Education sort of pledge. Where all houses are getting a free radio. Unless, he has a Chinese conglomerate on speed-dial delivering these at retail price. There is no way this is happening. Not now and not never, he has to burn his Switzerland account or something to pay this one off and he will not sacrifice his wealth at this point. Especially not for radios for everyone. Not even in a up-coming election year. He still haven’t delivered the promised garden hoes to all families across the Republic, which he pledges in 2015. So, aye aye Captain and good luck.

The last one is just disgraceful and distasteful, as the state haven’t delivered and haven’t supplied the public. If it has, it been one deliver during the 75 days of lockdown. Its beyond devestation and despair at this point of time. Instead of begging forgiveness for his mediocre performance, he instead expects applause. Something he doesn’t deserve.

I’m looking forward to see the receipts for the tenders and the procurement of radios and TVs as the state will mess this up. One way or another. Mask-Off or Face-Off, nevertheless, I’m awaiting the verdict of the Minister for Crocodiles. Peace.

Keeping up with Kaguta S1E15: Clarifications

I thought that I could clarify about a few points that I read out yesterday. I read out a list of long restrictions” Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (19.05.2020).

Today’s 15th National Address on COVID-19 Pandemic is in response to his own National Address yesterday. No, this is not a joke, but our mere reality appearing in front of our eyes. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has to answer to his own stuttering words. He doesn’t even need someone to spar with, he just need to battle himself and that’s self-explanatory. Sadly, this is true..

So, here we are on the 19th May 2020 and have to listen to the 15th National Address and still confused. The President will back-track and make people even more fuzzed than the day before. Just expect someone be typing statements like crazy tomorrow and some ministers listening in. To ensure their authority and their ministries are covered with explanations ahead of the current lockdown. As the measures are as steady as the mind of the old-man and his lonely vision.

With this in mind.

Here is the quotes I find unique from this evening:

Private cars will be allowed to move on the 26th but must wear the right masks and those who can get masks on their own, we don’t mind provided they are the right quality” (Museveni, 19.05.2020).

For the other measures, like shops,hotels, restaurants, operations should start on the 26th of May but considering all the measures put in place” (Museveni, 19.05.2020).

The Public service tried to convince me to be like other presidents and get a lot of money but I said NO. I have been earning just 3.6M since 1996” (Museveni, 19.05.2020).

The clarifications was a few more dates, as the uncertainty to what happens before the 2nd June ending of lockdowns was there yesterday. Today, there are more uncertainty, but also a closure of people riding in cars. They cannot be half-full, before the passengers and driver wears masks, apparently.

We are seeing the “clarification” on shops and such too. So, its not like shops whose not connected to arcades or malls can open up. Neither can the ordinary ones with possibility of social-distancing. They all have to wait over the weekend still. So, there is no quick opening here. Just more waiting and suspense.

Last piece worth noting was the lie of his salary. That will be his nominal salary, but his State House gets billions on shillings every year. Everything is covered and the State House even has a giant donation budget. So, if the President boost about giving away money. He has allocated money for that every year. Secondly, we all know he own businesses, hotels and whatnot. He owns ranches and other things in the Republic. The salary he has is only a tear-drop into the Atlantic Ocean. His richer than God and the Vatican. The President can buy out Uganda, maybe once or twice. However, he will claim to be a “wealthy” man, but his filthy rich.

That’s enough for today. The saga continues. Peace.

Keeping up with Kaguta S1E14: Mask-on or Mask-off?

There is a season 4 of lockdowns, as there will be extended for another 21 days until 2nd June 2020. The Republic is still under lockdown. Even as there are some measures, where the Presidential Directives giving way and letting people go back to work. With his 14th National Address yesterday. He pushed it even further. What was also striking about yesterday, was that the Address itself was supposed to happen today. So, maybe the posho-stunt wasn’t enough. Therefore.. sigh.. he had to show up early to steer conversation.

The government will provide standard masks to all Ugandans aged 6 years and above, these will be distributed through the District Local Council system. Each person will be allocated one mask which must be worn all the time when in public” (Yoweri Kaguta Musveni, 18.05.2020).

Earlier in the year, the President has said NYTIL is the local producer of COVID-19 Masks. However, there is a new statement where the machiens are working, but still their levels of production isn’t as high as the needs. This means, that the President has to procure like crazy to cover all citizens with free masks. Not like the state has been able to distribute food and steady enough. That is why he had to show how little posho a person needs to eat. Scientifically off course.

Just like it will be magically distributed across the Republic, as the Task-Force haven’t managed to distribute food to 1,5 million people in Kampala and Wakiso district. Therefore, it is very rich that the same folks are supposed to be able to give away masks to everyone. They need a streamline ordering from Taiwan yesterday evening or best in February. So they are sure the boat with masks are arriving in time for the two week deadline. As it has to secured paperwork in Mombasa Port too.

What is special is that there is a ban up to about 14 days to the public is supposed to have all free masks. While the borders are closed for 21 days. Also still a closure of mostly everything in every border district, which is plenty and all around the Republic.

What is more striking is also that the President opened at one minute for public transport if there was three persons in the car. However, is this with or without masks?

Yes there are still closed bars, saunas and gyms. Shops in malls closed, but the ones detached are able to open. As long as they can social distance. Also other things.

So, what we do need is maybe one of his bunch of ministers to follow the directives and directions of the President. Explain what this means and what really goes. Since, there will easily be confused by the old man. He says one thing, but it differs from the other statement.

Seems like there will be more hazardous problems ahead. Just like the empty promises in the past addresses. The same will happen now. It is no one who can produce the amount of masks the Republic needs in two weeks. Neither seems it like Ali Baba founder Jack Ma will suddenly do a “Dumbo drop” on Kololo Airstrip within a few days. Unless, he has some secret procurement from the public and actually uses the Confidential Expenditure for the common good. However, don’t expect that. That’s all for his spoils and his enrichment.

The public needs food and not only masks. The COVID-19 Fund haven’t done its job. That’s why the public is starving. Where they are struggling to eat, because of staying home, lacking funds to buy needed staple food or areas of landslides. Therefore, there are plenty of issues at hand, not only COVID-19 lockdown, but landslides, locusts and so-on. The state should answer to this, not only where they didn’t do the job. They are representing the whole Republic and need

So, you can wonder how hard this continued lockdowns without measures in place to help. There is too many people who hasn’t gotten the help they need. That should worry the President. Instead, he loves the flashing lights and stopping ordinary broadcasting. So, that he can ramble without a coherent ideas. That’s why there is report of a 15th National Address tonight to address the uncertainties created last night.

Showing again. That the man and his handlers knows the problems with his utterance yesterday. Because, who knows what goes. He should be as direct as he was with the knocking down of a goat the other day. If he was a direct as that. Than, the LDUs, Police Force and everyone else would know what goes. However, with the man its hard to know.

Maybe, some of his advisors and press cadres could write it all and then he would read it to the public. Even give the old man a Teleprompter and ensure he gets steady on a topic. Instead of suddenly going into a pastoral mode and reading scriptures, instead of policies and new regulations to follow. That make sense right?

Let’s see, but don’t expect to be enlighten. Only brazen misuse three hours of your life and only getting a sentence or two, which makes sense. Peace.

Keeping up with Kaguta: Went from the running-man to posho-man!

I had earlier consulted scientists on how much food calories an individual can consume in single day sustainably and they said 250g of posho would be of enough calorie composition for a single individual intake. Now is the food being distributed enough? It is optimum, if we can ration the intake with mind that we can not consume as much as we have always wanted, but can survive on an economical consumption” Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (18.05.2020).

On the 9th April 2020 the President dropped his work-out video from the State House. Where the old man ran like a maniac inside his huge office. An office, which are bigger than most people’s houses. The President also did some weird push-ups, which was more ass movements than his body. If you have seen the clip posted on Facebook in April. You know what I mean.

So, today his handlers had a grand idea, as his advisors also postponed like his 14th National Address during the COVID-19 Lockdown until tomorrow. Well, that didn’t happen. He changed it again and did it directly after the showing of posho.

They had the brilliant idea of him weighing posho. Show how much posho or ugali its in the given bag of COVID-19 Fund to the general public. Not to forget to prove by weighing the food to prove how much you should eat peer day. Because, that is useful.

The way he did it and showed it. Was like a mockery cooking show. Where he living lavish in abundance. With more helpers than Santa Claus. The man whose the Commander-in-Chief, the Fountain of Honour and His Excellency. Trying to teach the masses how much Posho they should cook everyday. Not like this is an extension of the various dietary needs nor in explaining how a family supposed to live on it.

We didn’t expect the state to deliver full course meals from takeaways. Neither dropping samosa’s or chapiti’s. However, the Head of State should consider his role in this. That he hasn’t sufficiently thought this through. As this only display is micromanaging and mismanaged hack-work he does.

Since, this is the sort of work his MPs gives praise to. Cutting and weighing posho. Just like they were so proud of the man running around like Mad Max in his Office last month. The President should enlighten the public and ensure the public get their nutritious meals.

Just like with the running video, where the road-runner went lost around the desk. His now the big chef of Posho. He went from Running-man to Posho-Man, his still not the Pusha-man. Give him time, maybe he will get there too. It’s more of the white, I suppose.

Well, enough of this nonsense. Peace.

Uganda: Amelia Kyambadde statement on the new guidelines during the lockdown (05.05.2020)

Keeping up with Kaguta S1E13: Another 14 days of Lockdown

Well, it is about that time. Well, the President, the Fountain of Honour, the bravest men of the all and the last Pan-African Hero (if you believe his son Muhoozi). Is back at it again. This time not on schedule, because he thinks everyone can wait for him during the imposed lockdown. Since, no one dares to boil chai or matooke while this man is on Telly or broadcast on the local radio station.

Like the previous editions of these National Addresses, whose way to long to our concern and has to much trash talk from the old man with the hat. The only man with a vision. I will only take my favourite quotes and digest them. Before calling it a day.

Quotes of this late evening:

What needs to be done is for our granddaughters to keep away from the drivers” – Museveni (04.05.2020).

Very soon, Uganda will be exporting sanitizers. Because you have always been having Waragi, killing you, now it’s going to be used to make sanitizers” – Museveni (04.05.2020).

Runyankore Proverb: ‘Owayangire kugojegyera ngu otarota’

Translation: You can’t refuse to sleep for the fear of bad dreams” – Museveni (04.05.2020).

Warehouses are vital for storing of factory products, they will be allowed to operate. Students should first stay at home. I am more comfortable with them being at home than going to school with these kinds of situations” – Museveni (04.05.2020).

Nobody who is coughing or sneezing should be allowed to mix with others. All the other measures will stay in place for 14 more days” – Museveni (04.05.2020).

All we are asking banks and landlords to do is reschedule loan payment, not forgive them. The government will not tolerant such inconsiderate actions of not reconsidering loans” – Museveni (04.05.2020).

So I am done for the night, the importance thing is that the lockdown is extended for the third time for 14 more days. This is from Wednesday. Therefore, the days with lockdown get’s close to two months as we are ticking into 45 days or so in my calculation.

Also, as we are seeing, the President is opening up the Republic. However, slow and soft. Who is wholesaling? Who is the essential mechanic? I don’t know, but Jason Statham isn’t around to verify whose the shooter and whose fixing the Land Rover. What we do see, is that the President is really vulnerable about the lorry drivers and their sexual affections towards the ladies. Its like a personal obsession at this point. What’s up with that?

He also went deep with the Runyankore proverb today. As the COVID-19 shouldn’t stop you from sleeping, but continue to live. Also, the opening of hardware-shops, restaurants for take-away and whole-sale. Not to forget the mechanics and the carpenters. Clearly a sign of less restrictions. However, when these people are crossing the LDUs, the Police Officers and whatnot. Will them get a pass or need a certificate? Since he cars of essential drivers needs that these days. So, how will this be enforced?

Let’s see how this goes. There is so much said in a speech like this, but not much to take from it. Only wondering, if the state will continue to deliver food and at what level. Since this is the third one of these and it only bites more with time. The hit gets harder and the lack of security is ever present. Peace.

Keeping up with Kaguta S1E12: It’s a Stupid Virus and don’t let the daughters touch the drivers…

Twelfth Time the charm, I suppose. As the President of Uganda is addressing his nation. I will not look into it all, neither dig to deep. Just take the gist of it all, as this thing is getting old. This is the second lockdown period and surely he will micro-manage some more and someone has pick up the slack tomorrow. Someone has make press releases and configure whatever the President said today. They will call it a Presidential Directive, but God knows where it is written.

So, with this in mind. I will just take a few favourable quotes. Since, to breakdown this speech is a waste of time and take the best and memorable quotes from him. Because, even if we are under lockdown, in quarantine or staying at home. We still want to spend that time with loved ones and not listening to the old man with the hat or trying to understand the “brilliance” or “vision” from this man.

Best quotes of the evening:

In the remaining days our experts are going to study more. Either our people are not getting sick or our people are dying” – Museveni (28.04.2020).

There is a possibility that there are no new cases. It could also be that people are getting infected but don’t get sick. It means they are getting immunity. 3rd possibility is people are dying but people don’t know it’s COVID19” – Museveni (28.04.2020).

Farmers should continue. This Virus is also stupid in a way. It is attacking people who are concentrated. It forgot that there are those who are not concentrated and yet the most useful” – Museveni (28.04.2020).

Stopping cargo is suicidal and unnecessary,it is suicidal because if we stop cargo how will our coffee, cement, Sugar,Milk etc be transported to our neighboring countries” – Museveni (28.04.2020).

Our daughters, tokwata ku driver oyo ate driver takukwatako. (don’t touch the cargo driver and don’t allow him to touch you)” – Museveni (28.04.2020).

I have been in statehouse here for 34 years but I have never bought even a toilet paper because it is not my job. There is a purchasing officer” – Museveni (28.04.2020).

Not that he said anything significant today or noteworthy. He mentioned how he was viewing the East Africa as a house. Uganda as the bedroom, Tanzania and Kenya as the Sitting-room. But we don’t know what Rwanda, Burundi or South Sudan is this manner. I don’t have the perfect quote, but he did that too tonight. Which is weird one in itself.

However, the rest is very standard. Just broad stories, which isn’t directing people, but just what he wants to talk about. Like the stupid virus who get spread in crowds, but on the countryside. Where the people are further between and farming the land. They are not as hard hit as the urban areas. Just like COVID-19 is hitting the capitals and metropolis of the world. That is why in his mind its stupid.

His then speaking of suicide to stop cargo-transport and also how drivers of those cargoes should not touch girls. Because, in sense he doesn’t want the drivers to be close to his citizens, but only transport goods and move along. Not be intimate or close to Ugandans. Because, the drivers are passing through and could bring the disease and therefore, the way of stopping the spread is not touching. Paternalism is a strong force with this one.

Well, if you thought you would get enlighten. You were apparently wrong. Well, that’s about it. He will come back for another edition or episode before the lockdown. As he has a comprehensive plan. He could have given a memo on that and not held a two hour speech. With little or nothing worth noting. Unless, this is a ego boost for the old man. Bosco aka Mzee wants the public to hear his voice and cough.

This was a waste of time. Peace.
