MBABAZI IS NOT FIT TO BE UGANDAN PRESIDENT
For those of you who are jumping at JPAM band wagon for presidency, please note the following;
Mbabazi does not qualify to rule Uganda because;
JPAM and M7 have presided over the government for almost 3 decades with many financial scandals with almost impunity to the people involved. He is not credible, and not fit for purpose to be Ugandan president.
He was at the centre of the government which changed the constitution, when they removed the term limit, to benefit his crony M7. Big mistake.
His involvement in Temangalo land saga which was blatant corruption with inflated prices(even though the court found him not guilty) Of course it had to find him not guilty because he was the PM and M7 defended him.
He was part of the government which squandered(squandering/back hands) $740m to buy 2nd hand fighter jets from Russia in 2010/11 on pretext that Uganda needed these jets to protect oil(really???). That money would have been put to better programmes which benefited all Ugandans.
You cannot first fall out with your leader and then start seeing what is wrong with him. For me personally that is hypocrisy of highest order. He is no different of what he will do as President in government from M7
He has been at the centre of the government for a long period of time which has deliberately or incompetently killed almost all the institutions which are very critical at the functioning of any government eg; the Police is completely rotten and very ineffective in every department. The judicial system, the parliament, local governments. If M7 does not get involved almost nothing is being done, thank God at least they got KCCA and URA right so far. To put is frankly he(JPAM) is as tired as the person is challenging. They have ruled and treated Uganda as their personal property
He has been at the centre of almost all high profile programmes which have failed because of corruption, such as the Global fund, NAADS, bonna baggaggawale etc. I can go on and on
He cannot now turn around and act to be different. I find it laughable that many people are jumping on the band wagon of JPAM presidency. He is the same man who has been seeing what was going on acting like everything was alright. Not credible at all. If we Ugandans can be easily fooled like that, God help us we shall continue going in circles…
wait for part 2 tomorrow
