What do you know? The president-in-waiting of this country is sitting up, sipping on coffee with Andrew Mwenda. A chick I was chatting with just a moment ago snidely commented that we were just looking on a grey man and getting excited. That there was really nothing too earthshaking about a grey man (and she gave reasons why this guy is grey. something to do with medicine and all that…).
Yes, they are having quite the time of their lives. Laughing away and making Ugandans wonder if he’s Superman or the dumbest jerk that ever lived. I mean, how could he say the things he has said about the lubengo man and actually come back here? Couldn’t he just stay out of our hair and…die in exile? Thats what all self respecting opposition politicos have done; Milton, Idi…and the other guy.
Whatever the case, there’s like a million and two Ugandans who actually think this dark man is going to be prez. In fact, there was an avalanche at the EC when the guy came home; suddenly, the voter turn up just went to 90%, it seems.
But who cares? At the end of the day, its going to be the story of another African leader trying to steal the cake out of the baby’s mouth.There’ll probably be tales of shadowy rebels and rumours of some guy who will come back and mete out misery on the baganda. oohps! that guy is dead and buried.
Oh, and Mama Winnie is also sitting up there trying to pass off as a quiet and soft woman in the shadow of her man. I wonder if they left Anselm in the trunk of the car, watching over the hammers.
