MUSEVENI’S LONG STAY IN POWER HAS KILLED AMBITIONS!

Friends,

According to Hon.Mp Bakireke Nambooze’s online paper, the Spear, FDC’s Dr. Frank Nabwiso will rejoin NRM soon. I dont know how old this gentleman is but I think there is some kind of a ‘death’ of political activism and opposition in the country at the moment, that is causing people to review their political careers.Ten years ago, many young people were idealistic fire brands who wanted to change the country – through revolution and very likely bloodshed. Then those people either lost their enthusiasm, or simply “joined the system”. In the meantime they brought much grief to those who copped their belligerence – people who simply wanted to live in peace.

Basically, because an old Museveni is showing no signs of giving up on power, or giving anybody a chance to lead, there’s that feeling of ‘what can i do now’ among a lot of people who harboured presidential ambitions, or careers in a new govt. With Besigye now rocking 60 years old and getting tired himself, there’s no visible opposition anymore. So, i’m not surprised when I see especially a 50 year old plus joining the govt.

A lot of young people that had presidential ambitions have also kind of given up. They watch with grief and pain as young leaders, such as Emanuel Macron, take over in France, and yet it looks almost like a dream in Uganda. Now, with the talk of removing age limits, everyone is scracthing their heads for a quick alternative.The opposition has to wake up and go back on the drawing board. A leader who stays long in power kills ambitions and quality for everyone and inhibit progress.

Politicians too often go into Politics with the noblest of ideals. Then they too get corrupted by the wealth to be had – the kickbacks, bribes, etc. and become yet just another politician.
