  • The wishy-washy, unconscious, and self-regarding Uganda elites

    The online dictionary defines “elites” as “part of a group that is superior to the rest in terms of abilities or qualities” (Refer to Classical Elite Theorists such as Pareto, Mosca, Michel, Mills, Putnam etc). For this article, elites are those who have attained certain privileges in society, such as higher education, formal employment, exposure […]


  • Explaining “defiance, noncompliance” to Eng. Kiggundu

    Since last week, the Chairman of Electoral Commission, Eng, Badru Kiggundu appears more distraught than stressed.  His biased utterances show that Eng. Kiggundu has lost his sense of fairness and he should step aside. The role of the Chairman of an Election Commission is that of arbitration, refereeing. And, like most referees, he should exercise […]



  • 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.

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 […]


  • Political greed is killing Uganda

    The approval of 65 more constituencies in Uganda by parliament only serves to highlight how low this country has sunk in determining its national priorities.  It also indicates how greedy and unethical the institution of parliament has become. 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 […]
