AS UGANDA ENTERS THE NEW YEAR 2018, THE MOST TREACHEROUS THREAT WE FACE AS A COUNTRY IS THE LEADERSHIP CRISIS.
#endof2017 I have been trying to figure out the most treacherous threat we face as country. I am afraid it is not lack of democracy or insecurity, poverty, unemployment, state institutions breakdown etc., much as these are crucial. Most frightening is the LEADERSHIP CRISIS on all sides.
Leadership crisis in opposition has been a glaring problem for long. What few pay attention to is the crisis in NRMO. We simply link lifting of age limit to vanity and Museveni’s lust for power. But these are just wrappers of real evil, FAILED LEADERSHIP.
Leadership that transforms countries or brings about change in the world shares one key element, A VALUE SYSTEM that puts humanity first. A Leadership immersed in rot and opulence and whose value system is SELF is useless.
A functioning system/leadership tends to limit the damage even when it does wrong. But when you attack MPs with guns on the floor of parliament, attack a palace full of children on camera, openly host an indicted person even if you disapprove of his indictment… That is serious, because law is law!
Such a leadership will find it very hard to organise a credible election, or plan an orderly succession or tolerate dissent from credible adversaries. No wonder, you got to keep comrades locked up in the army to preserve self. That’s the tragedy we face.
But perhaps, the greatest danger this brings about is the creation of the COUNTRY OF THE BLIND, like the story by H.G Wells
