Striving for Peace, Decent Life for All, ‘Very Pertinent’ UN Assembly Theme, Says Ugandan President

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda, took the podium expressing support for the theme of the United Nations 72nd General Assembly – ‘Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and a Decent life for all on a Sustainable Planet’ – questioning why the world’s elites failed to see its pertinence.

“Who would lose if all the people on the globe led a decent life,” he said, namely by having enough food; inoculations for “immunizable” diseases; drinkable water; education; clean electricity; fair-paying jobs; and respectable homes. “Parasitism is the only obstacle to global affluence, prosperity and peace,” he added.

Turning to “the dangerous situation on the Korean Peninsula,” he believed that, as “kith and kin,” the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic Republic of Korea (DPRK) would do well to alone discuss their re-unification. He cited a unified Viet Nam, as well as that of Germany in 1990. Noting the strength of a unified Korea, he posed the queries, “Why do some actors fear strong nations in the world? Why should the Koreans themselves (North and South) allow external forces to continue to divide them?”

“We always strive not to allow actors, foreign or local, to divide the African peoples, regardless of the complications involved,” he underscored, saying that Uganda accommodates many African refugees on account of a conscious ideological position – “not to allow any actors to divide us. We only fight traitors.”

On “the small issue” of enforcing sanctions against the DPRK, Mr. Kaguta told the Assembly that Uganda is in compliance. “We do not have to trade with North Korea. We are, however, grateful that, in the past, the North Koreans helped us to build our tank forces,” he concluded.

The Church Can Stop Life Presidency

opinionBy Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda

There is something important our revolutionary leader, Gen Yoweri Museveni, has skipped this year – celebrating his birthday.

This is something he has religiously done annually since 2014 when he turned 70. On his 70th birthday celebrated on August 15, he revealed that he was born “around September 15, 1944.”

Skipping this annual family fete tells you how cautious Gen Museveni has become with his age. He doesn’t want to be reminded when he was born. Reminding him, I think, is about to be declared an offence.

The truth of the matter is that even after all the alleged editing has been factored in, Museveni will be 76 in 2020 and, therefore, ineligible to appear on the 2021 presidential elections ballot paper.

That is why fortune-hunters have seized the moment to help him change the Constitution so he can realize his dream of dying in the presidential office.

I don’t intend to dwell much on the demerits of life presidency. This is something more qualified people dealt with starting in 2003, again when Museveni shamelessly started mooting the idea of removing the presidential two-term limit.

I assume that everybody in Uganda appreciates the danger of a life presidency including those parochial NRM MPs who want to become its champion.

What we must not forget is that there are personal rewards for pushing for it. MPs Peter Ogwang from Katakwi and Evelyn Anite from Koboko, who are part of the gang pushing for the constitutional change, will never feel for Museveni like Eriya Kategaya, Mugisha Muntu or Augustine Ruzindana [all NRM veterans] did. And Museveni knows it.

They are just hunting for fortunes. That is why those of us fighting to stop them must avoid looking like them. We must avoid presenting ourselves as publicity-seeking politicians who have seized on this campaign to make names for ourselves.

Seeking personal heroism and manoeuvres has, in the past, cost us some battles. That is why we must be as cautious as Museveni is with his age.

In Zambia, the population was able to stop President Fredrick Chiluba in 2001 from changing the Constitution to remove presidential term limits because it allowed the Church to lead the campaign.

Unlike ours, the Church in Zambia took up the fight to safeguard presidential term limits as a Godly project. First, the Christian Council of Zambia, the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia and the Zambia Episcopal Conference drafted a declaration pleading with Chiluba not to change the Constitution.

It urged him to “exercise statesmanship by unambiguously pledging to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution of Zambia and not contest the 2001 presidential elections.” It also appealed to the Zambians (the likes of Ogwang, Anite, Adolf Mwesige, etc) to protect democracy.

The Church organized and even led demonstrations. The Church had played a similar role to end Kenneth Kaunda’s life presidency project. In fact, the pulpit became the main platform against Kaunda’s hold onto power.

The Church played the same role in stopping Malawi’s Bakili Muluzi. Muluzi threatened the Church not to interfere with politics but they didn’t relent.

Again, the Church had played the same role during dictator Hastings Kamuzu Banda’s era. Kamuzu Banda, at one time, sentenced eight Catholic bishops to death for attempting to remove his government, but they didn’t waver.

For us in Uganda, the Church looked the other side as the revolutionary changed the constitution. Rwanda soon followed suit and Burundi was taking note.

An opportunity has availed itself to us again and we must cautiously seize it. Let the Church and maybe the Ummah lead or at least join the campaign to stop the life presidency.

The traditional leaders must also not only speak out, but actively participate in this campaign. If we don’t stop Museveni, he is willing to go down with our country. It is today or never.

Land – Museveni Can Have His Cake and Eat It Too

opinionBy Charles Onyango-Obbo

President Yoweri Museveni has run into some serious headwinds, in his plans to change the Constitution to make it easier, basically, for the government to grab one’s land for “development” for the price of the first stanza of the National Anthem.

The 1995 Constitution was, in several ways, revolutionary when it provided that land belongs to the people. And with that was enshrined the idea that if the government wanted land, it could not acquire it compulsorily without compensation valued at close to the going market rate. I do fully appreciate that there is scalping in land pricing when all of a sudden there is a plan for some high value infrastructure to run through it. Fellows come up with the craziest prices, but there is a smarter way of going around these things than diluting people’s right to their property.

This column has written before that one neat way to do this is to impose a land tax.

The second one is to offer people equity in the project in exchange for land. These market mechanisms that some people like to rail against these days, have their time-tested value.

For every acre of land, say the tax on it is Sh10,000 a year, on average. It can be more than double that near Kampala, and a quarter of that figure in a corner of pristine Koboko.

It can be backdated, say, to five years ago, for purposes of argument. The ka-fellow with a prime 10 acres on Entebbe Road, would have to pony up Sh100,000 a year.

If there is a development on the land, the first 10 acres of a piece would be levy-free. The tax would apply to the rest of the acres after the 10. But if the whole land is covered with maize or cattle, then the tax doesn’t apply. You tax the crops and crops when they are sold.

Now, of course, most Ugandans wouldn’t be able to pay. But that doesn’t mean they would lose their land. No, the system would be such that the tax is debited against them every year.

So, again to our brother on Entebbe Road. If he does nothing and just squats on the land, after 10 years, he would owe the government Sh1 million. If the levy was 10 times higher, he would owe Sh10 million.

If the government decides to build a dual carriageway that passes through his land, the law could be such that he cannot price it more than 50 per cent beyond the Sh10 million he owes. The most he could sell it for, therefore, would be Sh15 million. But the law would be such that the government would net off Sh10 million, so he would get Sh5 million.

Now, there is some land that has deep cultural and spiritual purposes, and there is also that which belongs to churches and mosques.

Cultural land would have a baked in premium.

Thus if the land on Entebbe Road was a sacred burial or worship ground, it would get Sh1 million points on its 10 acres every year. The idea is that when the tax levy applies, its rate becomes zero.

There are some churches in Uganda that have vast lands carried over from the pre-independence period when they were privileged by the colonial order. Today, some of it is leased out by corrupt bishops and priests. The amount of church land that is tax-free needs to be limited to no more than 20 acres, in places where they do not have a school, hospital, or some community project.

This single move would see the tax woman (since it’s Doris Akol) with billions more in revenues pouring out of her ears. It would also entrench cultural property. But it would throw the land completely open and unleash some very disruptive but creative forces.

It would also make it much easier and cheaper for government to get land for “development”. And it would not require a Constitution amendment.

So why isn’t this market-clever and neat option being pursued? Simple, because it would apply to everyone, and right now, the powerful people, including possibly the President himself, hold vast tracts of land.

Part of the spoils of office, and the patronage these landed people enjoy, is that they get to hold on to large pieces of land for speculative purposes without having to pay a penalty for their market-distorting behaviour. Seizing it punishes the smaller powerless men and women.

The other option is equity. If you are building a toll road through the land, give the landowners a share in it. If it is an airport, let them own a piece of it and share in some of its revenue. Since Museveni wants to be on the throne for life, this is the more peaceful path.

President, UK’s Boris Johnson Discuss Somalia, South Sudan, Burundi

President Yoweri Museveni poses for a photo with UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson during a meeting in New York City on September 18, 2017.

New York — President Museveni has held candid talks with the United Kingdoms Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on the situation in Somalia South Sudan and Burundi.
Mr Museveni told Boris that there must be a more serious concerted effort to flush out and stop al-Shabaab militants from Somalia and called for the strengthening of AMISOM through provision of more equipment and personnel to finish the job.

Uganda was the first country to deploy in Somalia in 2007, under AMISOM. Together with other Troop Contributing Countries (TCCs), they have made significant contribution to peace and stability in Somalia, providing a conducive environment for social and economic development of Somalia. Sporadic attacks by militants however threaten to reverse the peace gains.

On the situation in South Sudan, the President said regional leaders are involved in a flurry of activities to reconcile factions in the South Sudan conflict to stop the suffering and stem the flow of refugees to neighbouring countries.

According to the UNHCR, an average of 1,800 South Sudan refugees have been arriving in Uganda every day over the past 12 months. Uganda is host to about 1.3 million South Sudan refuges.

Additionally, there are more than one million South Sudanese refugees being hosted by Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Central African Republic. President Museveni said they are working on efforts to ensure unification in Burundi.

Mr Museveni who is in New York to attend the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly was meeting Mr Boris Johnson at the Uganda Permanent Mission Offices in New York. Uganda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Sam Kutesa and the Permanent Representative to the United Nations Adoniya Ayebare attended the meeting.

Uganda Moves to Scrap Presidential Age Limit

By Kate Hairsine

Lawmakers from Uganda’s ruling party have voted to introduce a bill to abolish presidential age limitations. When passed by parliament, the changes will let President Yoweri Museveni extend his grip on power.

Members of parliament from Uganda’s ruling party, the National Resistance Movement (NRM), overwhelmingly voted on Tuesday in favor of a formal motion to remove presidential age limits.

The move is seen as a thinly-veiled push by Museveni, who has ruled Uganda for more than three decades, to hold onto power.

Uganda’s constitution currently bans anyone over 75 from becoming president, which stops Museveni, now aged 73, from standing for elections scheduled in 2021.

In July, with Uganda swirling with rumors about the possibility of lifting the age limit, Museveni said it was “mere speculation” and that he was “too busy to bother” with the idea.

A foregone conclusion?

DW correspondent in Kampala, Alex Gitta, said the bill is expected to be formally proposed to parliament this week.

Few believe the motion will fail as the NRM holds a two-thirds majority in parliament. However, some independent politicians have promised to do everything they can to stop the bill.

“We are ready for a battle within parliament, no one will read that bill,” said independent MP Muhammed Nsereko in a fiery speech at a parliamentary press conference on Wednesday.

“We shall grab it, we shall tear it, we shall do everything that is possible not to let you speak on that floor of parliament.”

If passed, the bill will still need to go through the normal parliamentary process of debate, review and a second vote before becoming law.

Speaking at the same press conference, Theodore Ssekikubo, one of the few NRM politicians to publicly criticize Museveni, called for the president to retire honorably.

“You have done enough, you have done your part. Enough is enough and it is now time to go slow on these matters,” said Ssekikubo.

Museveni the rule changer

On the streets of the capital, Kampala, people didn’t see much hope of keeping the presidential age limits in place.

One man told DW he believed Museveni would pay off any MPs opposed to the amendments, while another said the opposition was “wasting their time” because there were so few of them.

If successful, the amendment will be the second major change to Uganda’s 20-year-old constitution to directly favor Museveni’s continued stay in power.

In 2005, parliament voted to change the constitution allowing a president to serve more than two five-year terms. Although he came to power in a rebellion in 1986, Museveni ran the country unelected for ten years until 1996 when Uganda lifted its ban on political parties. The 2005 amendments allowed Museveni to stand again.

Museveni is now serving his fifth term as Uganda’s president, after winning the 2016 elections in a poll marred by allegations of vote fraud.

“Museveni was quite appealing when he came [to power] because of Uganda’s violent history and the challenges the country was facing. He was kind of a breath of fresh air,” Norbert Mao, the president of the opposition Democratic Party, told DW.

“But he has shattered our hopes. He manages to stay in power by changing rules to serve him.”

Has Museveni Finally Touched the Ugandan Leopard?

opinionBy Timothy Kalyegira

In December 2015, Chris Aine, an aide to the presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi, led a scuffle with soldiers of the presidential guard, the SFC, during preparations for a campaign stop by Mbabazi in the western district of Ntungamo.

President Yoweri Museveni, incensed that Aine could dare manhandle what was supposed to be troops from the elite SFC, vowed his vengeance, warning that Mbabazi’s supporters had touched the anus of a leopard and would face the consequences.

Aine soon after was arrested and vanished from public view for several weeks amid rumours that he was dead.

This utterance by Museveni has since then become one of the most quoted and joked about.

Given the current uproar over the proposed move by the government to secure public and private land and lawfully compensate owners for it and then put it to use for major public works like road highways and railway lines, Museveni’s own leopard imagery might be worth appropriating.

Could Museveni himself have finally touched the leopard that is Ugandans’ most sensitive part, land?

As a grocery shop owner in Makindye asked this columnist last Thursday, will Museveni take the land or will land finally take him?

Meaning will he once again prevail in this matter or will land become the issue that finally angers and unites Ugandans against him in a critical mass?

Hundreds of thousands of voters can willingly take money in exchange for their ballot paper partly because state power feels distant from them and they think, anyway, it makes no difference who leads the country.

Ugandans and other people can be relatively indifferent to elective politics when their immediate personal security and especially economic livelihood are untouched.

Once people feel economically threatened, they become alert to public policy.

Land is such a deeply elemental feature of any society, be it industrial or agrarian-feudal.

It becomes much more emotive in a place like Uganda where it also doubles as the final resting place for the majority of the population.

Here is a situation that Museveni can’t manipulate using his tools of divide and rule. He can’t personalise it to past leaders, the Opposition political parties or the media.

He can’t hand out T-shirts or Shs20,000 notes in exchange for land. He is now dealing with the most important treasure that most Ugandans will ever own or hope to own.

Cynicism has so entrenched itself in the society, that few take the government or the President at their word.

Land is something whose financial, emotional and cultural value they understand.

The proposed giveaway of part of Mabira forest 10 years ago in 2007 was the first indication that Ugandans can take their geographical assets seriously enough to oppose the government and stage riots.

If a forest, whose main utility is to help regulate the climate, can impassion Ugandans that much how much more land with more immediate agricultural and other commercial utility?

Today, the largest number of court cases in the upcountry towns and districts revolve around land disputes.

The fact that Museveni has to personally tour the country to explain to the population the importance of the proposed land legislation shows two things.

The first is that even the President realises how emotive this matter is. The second is that his bloated government and Cabinet is shown for the ineffective entity it is.

With the largest Cabinet in Africa and a large public service sector, Museveni still cannot delegate to the line ministers.

No matter how long and how much he explains, the public will hear only one message: The government wants to grab their land.

Or rather: The thieves now want to steal our land, after stealing everything else that belonged to us.

Museveni, then, has become the boy who cried wolf once too often in jest until one day the wolf really did come but by then the villagers thought it was just another of his pranks.

After letting corruption and rule by impunity take on lives of their own for the last 30 years, it is too late now for anyone to believe that Museveni can be well-intentioned, even if he for once really means well.

Let’s watch how this land saga unfolds.

If it becomes obvious to Museveni from his consultation with politicians, the church, crowds at public rallies, the media and others with an interest in the country that this is the one policy he can’t win and he withdraws from it, he will have blinked.

It could embolden those who seek to conflate it and take the discussion to the question of the life presidency.

Museveni Tasks Makerere’s Nawangwe On Arts Courses

By GODFREY SSALI

Kampala — President Yoweri Museveni has directed the newly installed Makerere University Vice Chancellor VC) Professor Barnabas Nawangwe and the administration to consider phasing out all the non- market oriented arts courses if the institution is to remain relevant to the public its serving.

Museveni who presided over the installation ceremony of the former Deputy Vice Chancellor (DVC) for Finance and Administration as the new VC, said a lot of resources and effort are often wasted on irrelevant disciplines which are unfair to the students and their parents.

He emphasized the need for public universities to always put marketability and needs of the society into consideration.

“The problem of Makerere are these courses that are not market oriented courses because it is both unfair to the country and parents because they pay for disciplines that have no demand in the job market”, said Museveni.

Museveni hailed the outgoing VC Prof Ddumba Ssentamu for his contribution to the growth of university education.

Nawangwe pleads on University land

After promising to turn Makerere University property and assets into revenue generating avenues, Nawangwe said one of the greatest challenges they are facing are land grabbers.

He said they are spending a lot of energy in court battles to secure the university’s land.

In his remarks, Museveni promised to support Makerere university on land.

“We shall cancel any land titles that have been produced on the university land,” he promised.

Nawangwe to boost sports

Nawangwe pledged to re-develop the dilapidated sports facilities at the institution saying the lack of sports facilities accounts for some of the strikes that are often witnessed at the University.

“The lack of sports facilities negatively affects the health of the minds of students who many a times resort to strikes to release their energy”, said Nawangwe

Nawangwe said a new modern indoor netball stadium will be in place by September next year as part of a multi-purpose sports complex that will eventually see the University host international engagements.

“Ultimately the goal is to re-develop the university sports grounds into a multi-purpose modern stadium starting with the indoor stadium to accommodate the third word universities’ world championship that Makerere will host in September 2018 on behalf of Uganda,” said Nawangwe

Uganda’s NSSF Clients to Make Payments on MTN Mobile Money Platform

By Raymond Tamale

Uganda’s National Social Security Fund (NSSF) has partnered with telecom firm MTN as it seeks to increase the number of people saving for retirement with the pension scheme.

The partnership is set to benefit mid-size companies that remit less than Ush4 million (about $1,100), which now have the option of sending their contributions through mobile money platform instead of bank deposits.

Individual savers will also gain from the deal as they too can use the *165*3*4# code and follow the prompts to make their payments.

“An instant confirmation message will be received on the recipient’s number within 24 hours when a member makes his/her monthly contribution,” said Richard Byarugaba, the NSSF managing director.

NSSF hopes that more people from the informal sector will join its voluntary membership plan as the mobile money platform will cut down on the time-consuming process of remitting contributions through banks.

Mr Byarugaba said the new payment method was reached at after a survey, conducted last year on voluntary savers, showed that 67 per cent of respondents preferred mobile money platforms in making payments.

It’s Our Fight for Uganda’s Future

opinionBy Moses Khisa

On Tuesday, the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) parliamentary caucus resolved to press on with the nefarious plot of further entrenching Yoweri Museveni’s life-presidency.

They want to remove the constitutional cap on the presidential age limit. I was in kindergarten when the current rulers arrived. I have since gone to school up to the very highest level and Mr Museveni is still holding onto our country; illegitimately, one might add.

My children are now going to school, and Mr Museveni is still ruling us. Surely, we have to say no, emphatically. And Museveni himself must consider saving grace and avoid the possible humiliation of forced push out of power, which is not entirely impossible.

If the fight to stop General Museveni and the misguided, selfish, and morally reprehensive coterie in parliament and elsewhere belongs to anyone, it’s to my generation. It is our fight. What is at stake is the future of our country, of our children and our children’s children.

From the start, we have been told that it’s fait accompli: the age limit will go if the chief beneficiary wants it to go. We have been prepared by regime sycophants and apologists, who pose as ‘analysts’ and vend themselves around Kampala’s TV and radio talk shows, to accept that the outcome is inevitable.

The NRM has the numbers and Museveni has the money to pay them, we are reminded. But MPs behind plotting to entrench an authoritarian one-man rule, and the schemers available for hire by the real rulers, need to know that there will be resistance. There is pervasive fatigue against this one-man rule.

More important, there is deep indignation against the utter misrule, the plunder of the country; parceling away public land to individuals ensconced to the state and selling away everything we owned as a country; having an economy where Ugandans have very little stake; the sheer collapse of the public spirit and a sense of collective existence; the glaring social injustices at the behest of the powerful; the nepotism and cronyism; the travesty of the rule of law and the mockery of democracy.

This is an endless list of the abuses and betrayal visited on the country under the rule of one man. General Museveni shot his way to power in 1986 and has largely relied on coercive power to sustain his rule, but there is going to reach time when enough Ugandans will call a bluff on the fear of guns.

There is an attempt to couch the nefarious age limit scheme in general terms as a principle worth upholding. Apparently, an age limit provision in the Constitution is unconstitutional because it violates the right to equality of opportunity and the protection against discrimination.

Those making this ludicrous argument are insulting their own intelligence. It is a shallow attempt at creative packaging.

We are stuck with an imperial president whose love for power knows no bounds. For a country that has historically made history for all the wrong things, we are yet again a reference point for rulers who just can’t leave power.

Thirty-five years in power is embarrassingly long enough. To attempt to cling on even longer is simply despicable. Although constitutionalism has suffered a stillbirth in Uganda, there was hope in the last standing constitutional redoubt against the one-man rule: the age limit provision.

The chief beneficiary and, indeed, the lead author of the current dastardly manoeuvre, General Museveni himself, recently revealed that he believes being in power for a short time is a bad thing. And by extension, ruling for long is good. No, sir!

Look around and see the three-decade-long decadent system you are presiding over, where doing something as basic as constructing a road takes forever because of a corrupted system of rent-seekers and parasitic power brokers.

Longevity in power tends to have a corrosive, not progressive, impact. The most impoverished African countries today are also the ones where rulers held or still hold power upwards of three decades.

If long reigns were guarantors for progress, then Angola, Cameroon, Congo/Zaire, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, Sudan, Togo, and Zimbabwe would be high performers and beacons of prosperity. They are not. And Uganda is in the same category after more than thirty years of one-man rule.

Museveni’s long reign has produced institutional dysfunction. The few institutions that were previously islands of decency and modest excellence such as the central bank have not been spared in the latter phases of a wild neo-patrimonial system where institutional autonomy is undermined at the altar of political expedience and lining pockets of individuals.

By contrast, the countries that have posited modest but stable socioeconomic progress and have stabilized their politics, thus making the future more predictable, have not had life-presidencies: Benin, Botswana, Cape Verde, Ghana, Mauritius, Mozambique, Senegal, and Tanzania. For all their severe hovering problems, one can add Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, and Zambia to that list.

East Africa: New Research Shows Novel Way to Tackle Malaria

By Paul Redfern

Scientists exploring new ways to tackle the ongoing problems of malaria in East Africa have come up with the so-called “Trojan cow” project which aims to get mosquitoes to bite cows or goats rather than humans.

The project is one of three currently being developed by a biotech company called Isca Technologies based in California.

The “Trojan Cow” programme works by treating cattle and goats with a formulation that makes the livestock smell like people to mosquitoes.

The odour which mimics the smell of humans, entices malaria-carrying mosquitoes to bite the cattle, which are immune to the disease. A deworming medication in the cattle then kills the mosquitoes.

Trials

Small-scale trials of the programme have already been carried out in Tanzania where initial results were highly promising but a larger testing programme is due to begin elsewhere in East Africa soon by applying it to livestock, such as cows and goats living adjacent to the homes.

“You see goats everywhere,” Agenor Mafra-Neto, the founder of Isca told the Times newspaper.

“We thought wouldn’t it be great if the mosquitoes were attracted to the cows and goats? Cows and goats don’t get malaria,” he said.

If successful, the spray could be incorporated into livestock deworming programmes across the East African region in future.
