A minister from Buganda has ‘stunned’ his people by saying he doesn’t respect the Kabaka anymore. Apparently it stems from the treatment he received recently as he tried to meet the monarch. Methinks this is just a ruse. He musta been planning his getaway and he just needed a break. So now we are going to be treated to another round of accusations and he will probably be outed as a non Muganda like a certain Sabalangira Besweri Mulondo who dared “look into the Kabaka’s mouth.”
Red herring, I say. It is designed to make loyal followers of the Kabaka froth at the mouth and stop thinking about what’s important. And of course the minister has chosen his side. He will be taken away from the front, when the president and the Kabaka mend fences tomorrow, and be taken to the secretariat. There, he will be allowed to grow fat and lazy. And if the National Guidance Minister, Alhaji Kirunda Kiveindha’s example is to be followed, after some years, he will be recalled from the back office, dusted over and given a new ministry. That’s how things work, son.
Meanwhile, Egypt is trying to convince the world that they are not giving the countries of the Nile Basin a raw deal. It’s during public disturbances like we have now that big decisions are made. The public’s input is absent in the discourse because the people are someplace else fighting some phantoms.
Oh, and Zzimwe has been contracted to repair the Old Park. I don’t know about your faith these days but after all the potholed roads attributed to this company, I not going to applaud just yet.
