I guess as an OB 😁 of @newvisionwire (23 years) who has been through the reign of 2 CEO/MDs, 4 Editor-In-Chiefs, 3 News Editors, 2 Finance chiefs, and about 5 HRs, I qualify as an expert to comment on the succession plans there underway. Short #thread loading....
@newvisionwire 📌 It was actually a dream 26 years - 3 as freelancer, 23 staff!
✳️ Wrote my first article for @newvisionwire July 1989, during vacation @MakerereU, retired in December 2015. In that time, 2 CEO/MDs, 4 Editor-In-Chiefs, 3 News Editors, 2 Finance chiefs, 5 or so HRs
#HOPE has two beautiful daughters. Their names are ANGER and COURAGE; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are

Let us accept our mission to bring liberation of the body, of the soul; of financial liberty. Do not leave it to Museveni or Bobi Wine. We should all find out how God is calling us to change Uganda for better
— FR. MUSAALA
With no promise at all for financial relief for us ordinary citizens after the lockdown, THE LEAST Uganda 🇺🇬 can do for us, is save our lives.

@TioKauma@ntvuganda@HonAniteEvelyn MPUUGA: Buganda has moved first to the clarion call we have been making. It is not the first time Buganda is moving before other regions. It moved first by working with Museveni and opposed Obote. Buganda moved first to fight for Uganda's independence.
#NTVOnTheSpot@TioKauma@ntvuganda@HonAniteEvelyn MPUUGA: For years we have seen the results from western Uganda. I suppose that is democracy not sectarianism. The highest level of sectarianism is nepotism. Should we discuss nepotism as part of sectarianism, whose incubation centre Anite very well knows.
EVELYN ANITE: Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) is not under house arrest, they are just protecting him
KAMARA: From who?
ANITE: From himself
PATRICK KAMARA: ...Alright.....let me first rest.
📹 @ntvuganda#NTVOnTheSpot@ntvuganda MATHIAS MPUUGA: Our NUP team officially went to the EC to request for official results for Presidential elections as declared. They do not have them! What they declared is a huge contradiction to what people voted & declared at the polling stations.
That would be the best govt actually, with some checks. This usually happens in the US with voters ensuring president does not have both House & Senate. But also, cabinet members in opposition will also want development. The president of Uganda is so powerful - let me illustrate
How can you fail to push your agenda after appointing 31 Cabinet ministers, 49 Ministers of State, over 130 RDCs, over 130 Gisos, The Police Chief, Army Chief, Prisons chief, UNRA, URA bosses, have classified budget in trillions.... You would just be a poor leader. #JustThinking

Since Trump cannot tweet or post on facebook, he has issued a statement.
Let me help him share it 😀😀😀😀
TRUMP: Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. 2/4 #TrumpStatement
Marx had postulated that 'force is the midwife of every old society pregnant with a new one'
— MUHOOZI KAINERUGABA
✳️ Excerpt from book 'Battles of the Ugandan resistance: A tradition of #Maneuver'
It is the ambiguity about the role of individuals in the making of history that presents the greatest problem with the deterministic notions inherent in Marxism's conception of history.
MANDELA: A judiciary controlled entirely by whites and enforcing laws enacted by a white parliament in which we have no representation, cannot be regarded as an impartial tribunal in a political trial where an African stands as an accused

GEN TUMUKUNDE: Three quarters of your news bulletin @nbstv for example is on one candidate. You show him launching something, then his election rally, interview his officials before anything else.....is that what you call free access to the media?
#Interview #NBSMorningBreeze@nbstv GEN MUNTU: I avoid confrontations because all you gain is publicity, nothing else. Beyond publicity, I need to actually get to the voters. All my effort is in how best to reach the voters at the least cost.
As it is #Christmas today, will keep content light, jolly.....
All those hitting at my Archbishop, the pseudo intellectuals like OO @OfwonoOpondo , I will spare you today, but dare repeat the accusations 'outside today' ...then you will 'know' 😅😆😁
@OfwonoOpondo#Google, like the governments from the West in the case of @nickopiyo , want to dictate how we live our lives, what choices we make, what we can & cannot do....until they met South African former Deacon, freedom fighter & poet Mzwakhe Mbuli ! 😅😆😁
