This could have been any where in Uganda! As things get worse with no future for +70% poor Ugandans, more people will become thieves!

Ugandea & tax money belong to Museveni who buys off army, police, tribal leaders, mps, ministers & non of these are fighting for poor Ugandans, but for themselves & families!

Why have Ugandans locked themselves with Museveni tribally, officially, legally, constitutionally to ensure their complete destrucdtion?

So, why are Ugandans still alright with the tribalistic system that ensures they are powerless, while they are becoming thieves, fight one another, thus ensure +36 years of Museveni's evil rule & transfer of power to his son & what change will this be?

Ugandans remain with M7 because he offers and delivers more credible options for security, economy and development for individuals and nation than what you and your ilk offer.
