After Ugandan independence by 1962, there was much hope of prosperity because at that time, agriculture, mining and manufacturing industries were all doing well.
Tourism was also a promising area of development.
Haaaa! When it came to approximately 2000, all had just changed totally. Uganda nolonger had democracy and good governance.
population policies were changing drastically, as the national constitution had been over changed as it is upto today in order to favor the ones in power as a means of misuse of power.
on its own had/is at its peak, talk of Poverty as its in Ugandan districts such as Busoga, kibale, etc thus relying on foreign companies to come and take a hand in exploiting our own resources which results in local population unemployment.
Inefficiency is also inturn causing a lot of economic trouble as much of our funds is being wasted due to negligent leaders as you can really witness with Katosi road sag, also relate to Global funds, which at large is contributed to corruption in the country.
economic collapse on its own as a source of poverty in rural areas due to inflation in the country, over exploitation of the poor by kafuna groups in some underdeveloped districts e.g. kibale , Busoga kyegegwa Hoima where we find some people who give loans to local people at high interest rate to an extent of even 100% mostly to farmers, this causing the poor to remain poor as the rich grow richer.
Dictatorship as when one rules a country for his own benefits, not for the common cause of the population. This happens as some acquire power by coups, and when others are elected and then continue to rule ignoring the democratic process and the need for new elections. Most answers are within your minds. This results in seeing killings or suppressing the high figures in government such as the death of Brig Nobble M, Gen Kazini J, Hon Celine N and even the still controversial death of Maj Gen
Here we see dictatorship also causing tribalism and nepotism, as there are no safeguards to prevent leaders from using the security forces as their own personal army/police force as its the case with Yoweri
ni and Maj Gen Kale Kaihura claiming the ownership of the army and police respectively.
The system of education, famine and poor nutrition without forgetting Illiteracy.
Now after looking at such,
1.How have Ugandans managed to keep moving inspite of such instability?
2.Looking at Uganda and it’s leaders today, how have they managed to combat and fight against the above challenges as a reason to come seeking your vote for the next term in parliament?
