We have reached a level of hopelessness never witnessed before in the history of the country....evil men and women sit in high places and belittle honest and well meaning Ugandans.
Yesterday while in Parliament Owek. Hon.Ruth Nankabirwa Ssentamu came to where we were sitted and tried to intimidate Maama Cecilia into silence...I couldnt establish the reason why the Nrm Chief was blackmailing the old legislator.....but when I told her to stop harassing the old woman she (Nankabirwa) gathered herself up and told me that due to my stupidity I was standing alone and isolated since all the other wise Opposition MPs had picked Nrm cash and where infact supporting lifting the age limit....ofcourse she was lying but the firrmness with which she was telling me these worthless words would make Jesus envy satan....Well these are not days for the faint hearted.

Onapito once owned a newspaper the Crusader and it collapsed. He later went to work for Museveni and after Nile breweries as a PRO.
However yesterday while on Ntv's fourth estate he said that M7 has created a level of comfort for Ugandans and the economy is fairly good so there is no reason why ordinary people should join forces of change.

These elites at times make me question how they obtained their degrees. Elitism should be displayed not only in possesing academic papers and speaking good english but also in the way one makes arguements,behave plus one's capacity to guide and benefit society.

However I have noticed that our elites are so indifferent and prefer to act as commentators, bashing and dismissing all efforts meant to create positive change without them suggesting any new approach.

It is as if Ugandan elites dont feel oblidged to do anything in making Uganda a better country. I thought that Education wasnt meant to offer one an opportunity to benefit from his/her country but you to benefit the country.

Do our elites know the truth but they just cant come out for fear of loosing the hand outs from the oppressors or they are not in touch with reality ?

I suspect Onapito is not as comfortable marketing Waragi but he cant do without that job and he knows the oppressor has capacity to cause his dismisal.

How can the economy be okay when the Crusader and several other companies including British Airways, Etihad, Crane Bank, AIG Insurance, Unga, Engen Oil, Warid Telecom, Global Trust Bank,Cranes bank among others have closed operations in Uganda ?

It is also true that thousands of companies and Businesses are struggling while others are on the verge of collapse. In addition millions of small businesses have closed shop. Millions of our youth are unemployeed, underemployed or underpayed at places of work.

Uganda is said to be an Agricultural country but we are doing so poorly in that sector which we have failed to modernise. At the moment coffee and cotton being cash crops remains only in book since on the ground there are no farmers growing these crops aggressively. The little, farmers produce rot in villages because we lack capacity to process for export.

Can this and many other things happening around Uganda be a pointer to a fairly well economy Mr.Onapito?

Mr.Onapito misery is eating up our people,poverty is written everywhere you pass in our villages to the extent that Ugandans have turned into destitutes . This coupled with misrule, injustice and corruption characterised by impunity have together caused breakdown of all institutions of government which has made our country hopeless and its an inslut for anyone to say that Ugandans are comfortable in their present situation.
