Why my cause, more than ever, is Buganda and Buganda alone

A nationalist. That is what President Museveni called Katikkiro Jehoash Ssibakyalwayo Mayanja-Nkangi. I believe he says Mayanja-Nkangi was a nationalist, because Mayanja-Nkangi agreed in the mid-80s to join the NRM in its bush war to unite Ugandans. In my opinion, Museveni concludes that this means Mayanja-Nkangi must have been working for a unitary Ugandan government.

My two cents’ worth: Museveni could win without open Election Day vote-stealing

My two cents’ worth: Baganda will achieve true political power if they adopt a new way of thinking

In my opinion, we Baganda should stop thinking that we must, first, secure national political power, perhaps through a friendly Uganda president, in order to achieve economic development and success. In the 18th century, Jews had no...

My two cents’ worth: Baganda beware, win or lose, Museveni cannot hand over power to Besigye or Mbabazi

Kiiza Besigye, a Mukiga from Rukungiri in Kigezi, Amama Mbabazi, another Mukiga but from Kanungu in Kigezi, appear to command approximately equal shares of Baganda support in 2016 as does Yoweri Museveni, a Munyankole from Ntungamo in...

My Two Cents’ Worth: Katikkiro Mukasa Was Behind Many “Mwanga II Executions”

Ssekabaka (departed King) Danieri Mwanga II is notorious for having executed the 22 Uganda martyrs. However, most of this notoriety should go to his Katikkiro (Prime Minister) Mukasa. For example, as soon we shall see, Mukasa guaranteed...

My Two Cents’ Worth: Gashumba Only Re-energizes Baganda Self-determination Fight
