Solving the mystery of Museveni’s true identity

Former Ugandan President Apollo Milton Obote warned in vain about Yoweri Museveni whose first job was in his office in the 1960s.

Events that Friday March 6, 1987 changed the life of yours truly for ever and he has never stepped in Uganda since. For the last 29 years, yours truly has struggled to convince whoever wanted to listen that Museveni was a ‘fake democrat’ and had ulterior motives for power. But his popularity then was so high warnings simply fell on deaf ears. Former leaders like Dr Obote and his former deputy Paul Muwanga also warned in vain about the intentions of Museveni but many saw their warnings as ‘sour grapes’. The most disturbing thing is the lack of any information about the Ugandan leader’s uncles, aunties, grandparents, great parents and the whole line of his family that many of us can easily produce and mention without any difficulty. An African grows up being looked after by many ‘aunties’ and ‘uncles’ and their names stay with you for the rest of one’s life. Why is there a gaping absence of this in the Ugandan leader’s life?

So this week, we will embark on an attempt to expose the lies that Museveni has used to get himself in power and why he is going to fight to the death to keep himself and his family in power AT ANY COST. Most of our sources will come from the very statements he has made and his own writings on various issues in the country. We invite any reader who has any facts regarding this evil man to come out to send them to us and we promise that we will observe the journalists covenant of never revealing one’s source of information even when faced with the threat of imprisonment or death.

 In this Sunday issue of The London Evening Post, yours truly will relive the day of the attack that claimed Dr Kayiira’s life and how the former guerrilla leader spent the last day of his life in the Ugandan capital Kampala. But to kick us off in our efforts to understand what the ‘mysteries’ surrounding the real identity of Yoweri Museveni are, we produce an article authored by one of our regular columnists, Prof Eric Kashambuzi, who was born in Rukungiri District in Western Uganda but is now a resident of New York in the United States of America. He kicks us off by ‘solving the three mysteries about Yoweri Museveni’. We invite readers to take part in this exercise and help us understand who the only man the current youths of Uganda have known as their leader really is.

We would particularly love to hear from those he played ‘hide and seek’ with in Ntungamo, his ‘alleged’ place of birth or those he shared primary school days with. Were you at Ntare High School in Mbarara when he attended high school there? Did you share lectures with him at the University of Dar es Salaam? More precisely, did you fight with him during the struggle to remove Idi Amin in the mid-1970s? Have you any experiences with him while he was commanding the bush war between 1980 and 1986? We would like to hear from you in confidence. We sincerely believe that it is only after learning and understanding what this man truly is that Ugandans can mount an effective campaign to regain their country.

    The Key to Museveni’s destiny is locked up in some room in Mengo. Occupants of that room are the ones who supported him, who nurtured his ambitions, and used him to keep Obote uneasy, troubled, and unstable as revenge for his elimination of Royal power in the country. Since he captured power with direct assistance of the catholic Acholi and Baganda, Mengo has been in collusion with close members of Museveni’s mysterious Clan-(presumably Rwandese), to keep him in power until all their objectives are achieved- especially Land grab, minerals extraction.(oil being a big one) and wealth that will sustain them for generations to come. People from Eastern Uganda, perhaps with assistance from Lango, and non-royal parts of Buganda, and Western parts which hate Tutsis can lead the way to launching a second liberation war. Now, the time is ripe- with Trump – who dislikes dictators, War Lords and long serving, entrenched bureaucrats, someone need to emerge to the level of approaching the White House to discuss the removal of M7 from power by force.

    Dear Mauso,
    Trump is too busy with North Korea. He may not be interested in Museveni. Moreover, Museveni is not
    a fool. It is matter of promising a company from the West ( eg Total) that it will have access to oil, and
    then the West ( including perhaps Trump ) will leave him alone. How did Mobutu manage to stay in power for so long. If change is required, it will be brought a bout by Ugandans and perhaps through
    elections.

    Uganda needs peace that’s true but liberty is a tree whose water is blood. Without blood the tree dries and remember many crimes have been done in the name of liberty. “Oh liberty! How many crimes are done in thy name!” Many call the 1986 Museveni victory up to now liberation which puzzels some brains
