UGANDA: The wonder of Bobi Wine & #PeoplePower

What a ride! Eighteen months ago if you asked me if Bobi Wine could galvanize Uganda into what we are facing now, I would have told you “I do not even know a single song he has sung”. Out of no where, he won a parliamentary seat.  That was fantastic.  Because all odds were against him.  It is now history. I did not campaign for Bobi Wine at all.  I only told my Uganda youth followers “this is your time.  vote for someone close to your age group”. For someoneRead More


LOVE: Kahlil Gibran on Love

Kahlil Gibran on Love  When love beckons to you, follow him,Though his ways are hard and steep.And when his wings enfold you yield to him,Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.And when he speaks to you believe in him,Though his voice may shatter your dreamsas the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branchesRead More

UGANDA: Why does Bosco keep borrowing from China?

That is a question which Uganda opposition needs to ask but it is not a question which any of them dares to pose.

To this day, no one in Uganda, regime or opposition, can say how much money we have borrowed from China. No one will say what our collateral was.  No oneRead More
