I react to the bold front page headline in one of the Dailies, 15th/Aug/2019 and ask does Uganda need Chineses’ Huaei and Israelites to hook local hostile personalities among whom is purportedly is Robert Kyagulani a k a Bobi wine ?.
Those who are spearheading the People Power movement are ourselves in government and we have handed significant cost-free power dynamics, first by Parliament that is frequently making anti-population legislations, the Executive that is sanctioning, initiating or formulating many of the annoying laws and to a large extent the judiciary that is entertaining politically instigated cases hence playing in opposition’s much needed publicity and mass support.
Haven’t our own spy networks in the country up to now built capacity and attempted to link the current political anger (storm) to our own background of 1980-81 where we the youth of that time supported then Uganda Patriotic Movement (UPM)’s candidate Y.K Museveni as just as a bait for we had foreknowledge that the angry population and the international community, just like it is at the present time could not co-operate with Obote’s second coming (regime). We were de-campaigned by Apollo Milton Obote and group as bandits and thugs.
It is true that in the minds of we, UPM supporters, there was a waiting Luweero Triangle or any other location but in Buganda region (where anger was maximum) that would provide a salient option for bullet boxes instead of ballot boxes, the latter Obote was so brilliant to manipulate.
Is God annoyed with Uganda that there is not even 50, 45 or just 5 of our own spies to handle simple political animosities within our boundaries just as it was with Abraham at the time of Sodom and Gomorrah. Genesis 18:20 forward and the Lord said, because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it which is come unto me, and if not I will know. And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom but Abraham stood yet before the Lord. And Abraham drew near, and said Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: Wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for fifty righteous that are there in?. That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee, Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?. And the Lord said, if I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
First forward in verse 32 And he said oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once peradventure 10 shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.
Verse 33 and the Lord went his way as soon as he had left communing with Abraham and Abraham returned unto his place.
Can’t Uganda raise only ten of her own spies to depend on Israel and China?
