  • How Mr. Museveni became a hostage to Musevenists

    The post NRM Primaries has revealed a lot more about behind the scene struggles that we should analyze. It is increasingly clear that Mr. Museveni is indeed a hostage of a group of exploiters and self-seekers who are accustomed to state patronage, corruption, and are equitable to the Latin America’s fish – Piranhas/Caribes. To shed […]


  • The perils of corruption in Uganda makes it a political problem

    The subject of pervasive corruption in Uganda accentuates a deeply seated sense of pessimism, followed by powerlessness in its victims, which leads to an internalized and normalized justification of it. Corruption, primarily perpetuates itself through a degenerative morality/ethics, feeds the politics of lumpen proletariats, and, in my view, it is the manifestation of the body […]


  • Why is President Museveni Changing the LRA/NRA War Narrative?

    One of the most powerful predictors of success in politics and public policy  is the strength of political narratives. But do political narratives represent political reality? President Yoweri Museveni while addressing supporters at Pabbo Catholic Mission, Pabbo Sub County in Amuru said, ”Northern Uganda owes him for fighting tooth and nail to chase away the […]


  • Go-Forwards’ Sub-County Model of Development Deserves Our Attention.

    Last week when I read the Go Forward Manifesto, I was struck hard by the central piece of their development proposal called Advanced Sub-County Model of Development (pg23). This model deserves our attention as voters as it will remove the clutter in our development planning. The proposal potentiates a standardized, equity-based development plan. The ingredient […]

It is clear that Ugandans are no longer getting value for money from this institution and there […]


  • Blaming MP for Poverty is dishonesty

    While northern Uganda has totally transformed through its twenty years of conflict experience, clearly, Museveni’s scheme for the North has not changed even one bit. His intentions to grab land, enslave the people on plantations, and subjugate northerners, are revealing. Many people, including Kilak County MP, Gilbert Olanya, were shocked when the President blamed the […]


  • Africa must leave the ICC

    It has taken Africa just over a decade to conclude that the International Criminal Court (ICC), established in 2002 by the Rome Statute, is simply unfit for purpose. That certainly is the conclusion of the South African government following the recent African Union summit in Johannesburg. The institution African countries signed up for post 1998, […]


  • Without electoral reforms, 2016 is meaningless.

    The news that the NRM dominated Parliament has rejected all the seventeen (17) proposals, containing the core areas recommended for electoral reforms, leaves this country in an unstable state. It also offers no credibility to the current Electoral Commission, and does not guarantee that the 2016 general elections will be free or fair elections.  Without dialogue […]
