WE MUST STAY FOCUSED!

27th February, 2019
Brothers and Sisters,

I salute you in the name of our motherland – Uganda and I commend you all for the efforts you continue to put in for the liberation of our nation.
While we, as leaders do our part to give direction to the struggle, it gives me so much courage seeing the increased levels of consciousness and patriotism amongst our people, young and old like never before.
That is what gives us the hope and confidence to wake up each day, working even harder to push this struggle forward.
In the recent days, a lot of things have been happening and so much has been said. I decided to write to you all to give my personal thoughts about where we stand, where we need to go and what we must do to get there.
As we all know, the regime has been in panic mode for the past months because they can clearly see that their fall is imminent.

Their game has been utterly exposed. President Museveni is fully aware that he cannot oppress the people forever. He knows very well the fate of all dictators who came before him. That is why he works day and night, using all machinations to keep himself in power- even though on borrowed time.
For a long time, he has survived by keeping the people of Uganda in the dark because he knows that as Steve Biko said, “The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.” That is why for the past 33 years, his main preoccupation has been keeping the message of hope and freedom away from the people, while feeding them on propaganda and lies that his inefficient regime of national shame is the promised messiah for this nation. The result is that for a very long time, our people were not even aware that they were being enslaved and oppressed in their own country. Indeed, very few Ugandans knew that they deserve better; that they can live in a country where there is justice and equality.

I am most grateful to the many forces of change who have made tremendous efforts and sacrifices over the years to awaken the consciousness of this nation – be it political leaders, a few conscious artistes, the civil society, the media, etc.

WE MUST STAY FOCUSED!
