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 πŸ“Œ 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

πŸ“Œ LIKE, if you agree

✳️ The COVID-19 vaccine should be given out free to every Ugandan citizen. FREE.

✳️ It has been done before, with @gavi support, for all the other immunisable killer diseases.

#GoodMorning πŸŒ„
#Uganda πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬ @gavi After the incomplete story of :
πŸ“ Food
πŸ“ Masks 😷
πŸ“ Radios

With no promise at all for financial relief for us ordinary citizens after the lockdown, THE LEAST Uganda πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬ can do for us, is save our lives.

βœ… FREE COVID-19 vaccines and medicines πŸ’ŠπŸ’‰ for all Ugandan citizens

@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.

πŸ“Ή @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.

The most priced item in Uganda now. DR forms! The way I know Americans, if they really want authentic copies of DR Forms...they have them already😁.

Did Byabakama brag about his 'Ugandan internet' that transmitted results. Let him cross check the system did not copy the #CIA without his knowledge.

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

Marx had postulated that 'force is the midwife of every old society pregnant with a new one'

✳️ Excerpt from book 'Battles of the Ugandan resistance: A tradition of #Maneuver'

#TraditionOfManeuver 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.

The key lesson for Uganda's politicians and generals ...

"Has it ever occurred to you, that we can all be winners?" #BattleOFCuitoCuanavale 1/2

Has it ever occurred to you that we could both be winners?

What do you mean?

πŸ“ŒStart the year with a LONG READ!

βœ… The scene...

▢️ Nelson Mandela, conducting his own defence in his 1962 trial.

▢️ Presiding, is a 'white' magistrate

▢️ Mandela starts with an application asking magistrate to recuse himself....


#GreatReads2021πŸŽ† 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?

#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.
