The president has denied responsibility whether direct or indirect in last weeks riots that killed over 20 people in Kampala.
Without remorse or sympathy over the loss of lives, the president blamed the opposition for the riot. The president must think Ugandans have eyes but no vision. This is total disrespect especially to those who lost their loved ones. He said the government will compensate those who lost property and if they are to pay relatives for the lives lost, this utter insensitivity from a head of state should cannot be tolerated.
I was in Tortuguero on the day before independence and the performances are so great and so different from Uganda’s where the occassion is about the military marching. Here, ordinary people took time to make constumes and children really look up to the day as they are involved in the day’s performances.People show love for their country. Most Independence days in Uganda, people go about their business and it is almost a government/NRM show which gives one a real reflection of feelings of Ugandans towards this day
