The NRM revolutionary agenda is slowly aging and turning of great strategic importance to this demographically young country although the waters are turbulent and hey… let’s balance the boat!
Many leaders in the party ranks and Members of parliament are simply making a fortune out of this situation and are actually accomplished predators, parasitesbankrupt of the commitment to keep Uganda a pearl now.
Most of the members of parliament today, even those you see making noise are just shaking the tree to have fruits , others in the frenzy to position themselves for cabinet appointments for their own interests at the expense of the ordinary Ugandan. This term, from 2016 May it’s so far terrible. No legislation has ever been championed by our leaders for the benefit of a common person. Environmental degradation is at its peak, corruption a custom, counterfeit goodsawash on the market, education system over commercialized with no checks and balances, young people hoodwinked into politics for survival, as opposed to service, etc.
They concentrate on ping-pong with the state, turned the temple of legislation into a casino hall where gambling and deals are cut as they wet their beaks and fill their bellies,glitter their lips up.
It’s important for the young people to take centre in the politics of this country and this is through ideologically sound political participation, qualityrepresentation driven by the zeal to foster the plight of thecommon person.
Once we do this,we shall have legislation that targets to sort out all economic huddles that require political goodwill to be addressed thereby harnessing our economic gain and strategically setting our country to steady fast strides towards the middle income status.
We should appreciate those who have played their part in the last 15 years but practically we must agree that all those who have served whether in NRM or the opposition for more than 10years apart from the visionary father of the NRM revolution must be shown the exit through the ballot and a new generation leadership takes over come 2021.
We have a crop of young people from all regions of the country ready to take the mantle and deliver Uganda but as we all know,no commander wins without troops and weaponry.
You fellow Ugandans especially in the NRM are the troops;your votes are the weapons. Forget about the billions earned a wrong way to be splashed to you in exchange for votes.
Forget the flamboyant stunts. Discard the deception,let the average person take over so that the lower person may raise.
We within the entire network know that this is achievable and we shall present ourselves to offer leadership as long as you rally behind and in front of us.
Those in Sheema we no longer want patronage. We want projects for the poor.
We want quality roads. We want alternative less land intensive economic activities for the landless. We want quality trade. We want tailor-made economic interventions for all gender. We want consultativeand participatory representation.
My fellow NRM party members, let’s clean our house and rejuvenate the might of our party. Let’s give the young hope and confidence in their party.
Let’s bequeath good political practices to the young generation and secure the future of our country.
