I saw red when Janet Keinembabazi Kataha Museveni, the wife of Ugandan despot, was appointed a minister in charge of the historically impoverished and semi-arid north-eastern Karamoja region her husband ruined.
I sensed something nasty with more magnitude of megalomania than even that of Zimbabwean killer, Robert Mugabe. Even an imbecile like Idi Amin did not attempt this mania.
Astonishingly, the husband is president. Sadly, the wife is first lady, minister and an MP! To add insults to injuries, the son’s an army command of his elite group! Museveni’s younger brother, Caleb Akandwanaho, is senior presidential advisor on defence, not to mention his daughter Natasha Karugire, private secretary to president. This, among others, is an inner-inner sanctum of Museveni.
Hold your breath. There are still other surprises of other swindlers from Nyankole tribe (especially from Ntungamo), fully parked almost everywhere money can be printed and be stolen in Uganda.
When asked why he appointed his wife to ministerial position and if this was not nepotism, Museveni gave hoo-ha and hogwash… that there was no person that would like to take up this post! This is Museveni position. M7 tell it to the birds. They’re so many Ugandans ready to serve under any capacity if you let them.
To the contrary, Mrs Museveni says: she’s sent by ‘God’ to fulfill this “difficult role that others fear to serve- Karamoja”! This is the second time for ‘God’ to send Mrs. Museveni. The first time it’s when she was running for Ruhaama consitituency for which she is an MP. She alleged that she was sent by God to serve the people of Ruhaama.
In other words ‘God’ is Museveni (husband). And this means Uganda now is the kingdom of god on earth.
Watch out. The other day she’ll say: she’s sent to serve the whole country after her husband (who was sent by the devil known as weapon and greed) ruins it. This is possible. Maybe, this aims at preempting the whole plot. Currently Yoweri and Janet are like yin-yang to Uganda . They are everything and above everything.
Now Museveni in Uganda is everywhere. He is in the sitting room as well as in the bedroom almost in every house!
After turning Uganda into his private estate, Museveni by appointing his wife, he’s broke the record. And methinks, this is paving the way to appointing his soldier son, Major Muhoozi (son of Museveni’s ayah-cum girlfriend, the late Hope from Bunyoro), so that when he’s gone, the son should take over as it happened in DRC, Togo and it will soon happen in Egypt.
In fact, Musevi did appoint his wife in order to measure the waters. He wanted to assess the reaction of Ugandans and the world on this. This though it seems, there are those that doubt it. For, it’s likely Muhoozi and his step-mother might be in power struggle. So, maybe, just maybe, Museveni appointed his wife to assure her of his support or to tell his son: his time is still yet to come.
