Hamis Walimbwa, Kyagulanyi...were babies when Museveni came to power 36 years ago, so they only know Museveni's Uganda! Their own kids too, will know just Museveni's Uganda!

How many Ugandans of Museveni's age still live & how?

How many Ugandans who fought for/came with Museveni in 1986 are still in posts in the army?

How old will Museveni's son be by the time the dad dies of old age & leaves him the post & what change will this be?

Why are Ugandans alright being slaves of the migrant family, in the zone formed by their tribal lands?

Akot, I do not know whether to wish you a Happy New Year or not.

36 years and counting, Uganda is under the Iron-grip of killers, by killers and for killers.

In other words, in Uganda we live, fall sick, die in grizzly road accidents and/or get shot/killed at our own risk.

We live one day at a time; and we thank God if we wake up and kicking, to to see another day.

This is not a good enough excuse to kill a civilian!
