Dear Ugandans. My Opinion On the looming Poison talk and debate.
Greater possibility and truth is that Poison challenge is real in Uganda during NRM Government by some mafias. What is the evidence to its justification?
1). In Runyankore, there are proverbs that; Zabikwa omurisa oti ziriyo literally meaning that, if your herds boy tells you that, your cows have been stricken by the lightening, how do you insist that your cows are there when the very eye witness is the one telling what he saw?
Omugyezi wamaizi nokwebembeire literally meaning that, he who is a head of you in crossing a river and who is taller than you is being drowned by water , how do expect to cross the very water when your shorter than him?
Now when Army Generals like Tinyefuza ( Sejusa) go on air( NTV) and acknowledge the existence and fear of poisoning, when General Mugisha Muntu talks of poisoning at Parliament as we quote Sunday monitor 20/5/2007. When President Museveni suspected Mayombo could have been poisoned as it was in papers, who are we as locals to deny there is no poisoning under NRM Government?
The greatest problems are; Silence of those who know the truth and keep quiet. Proverbs 10:10, Fortune seekers; those who seek fortunes and can stand to eat poisoned honey as long as it tests sweet in the mouth.
One tribe of people was attached by a lion at night on their way to look for work. The response was amusing,”Mwigirane, kiramujanye” literally meaning that, come close to one another, it has grabbed him. At the end of it all, they were all grabbed. There is a need of one strong voice against the vice or else one by one we shall all be swallowed.
To the mafias, regardless of whatever reason for your vice, you are wrong. Justice yields everlasting justice. Unjust practices will bring you unjust end however much you protect yourself either with money or guns.
Regardless of how many victims you will have carried 6 feet deep, what happened to mafias in other countries is dearly waiting for you.
It is better to suffer miseries first than you being the last with it. Shed off that fog of greed from your eyes and see clearly, otherwise the big and long eyes are on you for you will never go Scott free. It is only time. Did bin laden the best schemer, Ghadafi to giant of Africa, Sadam the great etc. and their Hench men wine their philosophically Cal vision. Look at Mandela and his name. The trick was simple. Justice, Justice, Justice.
