Why Col. Abiriga’s village house is AIGP Kaweesi’s pigpen

Col. Ibrahim Abiriga is the M.P for Arua Municipality. He was born in 1956 and joined the army in 1971. He was at one time the Manager of Pakuba Lodge owned by the government. He has served in different military and civil service positions including Resident District Commissioner. He is now regarded as a top Museveni life Presidency scheme promoter. The recent stage-managed arson attempt on his village home brought to the public eye his dilapidated village house that is located within Arua Municipality. The dilapidated structure looks like theRead More


Boda boda 2010 vow to beat up and maim all opposed to Museveni life presidency

A group of passenger motorcycle riders dubbed Boda Boda 2010, which is feared for its attacks on government critics, has launched a campaign to confront groups opposed to the removal of the presidential age limit. Mr Abdullah Kitatta, the patron of Boda Boda 2010, a quasi-militia group, said the rallies by groups opposed to the removal of presidential age limit are intended to illegally topple the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party from power, an act they cannot tolerate.

MPs’ pay held to fund age limit consultations

In order to raise the Shs 29 million for each MP to go and consult constituents on the age limit removal bill, parliament has cancelled foreign travel bookings for its staff and parliamentarians.

How narcistic Museveni rediscovered Uganda’s need for him

In the mid 1990s when I lived in Tanzania, I had a Ugandan friend, John Omara. John, an Acholi from Gulu in northern Uganda, was brilliant, deep and thoughtful. He spoke in a low measured tone almost in a whisper, calmly and politely, letting you soak in what he was extrapolating. When we were not busy, we killed time by discussing the latest trends in media and journalism, East Africa’s current affairs and political economy, and African and world history. We agreed on many issues and many are the timesRead More


Isn’t it time for Uganda opposition to consider an armed struggle?

It is Ugandans who are interested in suffering the consequences of Museveni’s autocratic regime and I am eager to express that as my actual feeling, indeed it is. Look, in the whole world never has happened for a dictator to perform peaceful transition of powers to mere civilian body;  it has never and will never happen. Now ever since Museveni exceeded term limit, how many good politicians and with good wills that have been confronting him and accusing him for the same, the answer is very many, and during suchRead More

More than 50 Ugandans dead in Middle East trafficked as modern slaves

However, reports of inhumane treatment have continued to filter back and there is no end in sight.

America’s scramble for Africa

The ugly row over whether President Trump disrespected the young widow of a fallen American soldier has overshadowed a bigger issue.
