KIRUNDA KIVEJINJA over 20 year ago predicted the exact situation in which the country is in now.
In his book “UGANDA, THE CRISIS OF CONFIDENCE” the longest serving minister summarized cause of the people revolution that saw off Obote, which is perfectly related to the current state.
“……. …It became absolutely clear that power over the heads of the people was governed by forces other than their votes as has been done in all previous occasions since English colonialism.
The rest were mere hallucinations and pure acrobatics of those involved.
Neither a coup nor a liberation war, nor a peaceful demonstration, nor an election had any relevancy to the wishes of people. The crisis of confidence had only escalated at each of those stages.
Due to this realization, the people sought to reclaim their power by recourse to the age old and time tested arbiter of political conflict. They declared war on the UPC [READ NRM] in 1981.
The leadership for the new emerging nation had failed to inspire confidence! . . . . .
