One has to question just who is behind the death of one of the largest cops in Uganda. Was it the opposition or is  the current Ugandan president? It is the perfect excuse to impose an even more draconian state of security upon Uganda. Despite the many murders in Uganda there has been so few convictions. 

Uganda continues to head towards the age of big brother.

The killings are brazenly and methodically being carried out by assassins, one can't help wonder from where they are coming from? What is in the future for Uganda as the attacks seems to target those close to the government?  Or are some government factions now turning against each other for high-stakes?

I think something bigger may be happening right now.

I was just recently hearing a BBC report that people are charged with minor things like vagrancy, there is no hurry to charge them in court, in fact the time on remand ends up exceeding the maximum sentence allow for under law.

 

this is repressive


Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.

Unfortunately, true. Such a shame. 

Thank you for sharing, optig. BTW, the BBC link does not seem to work, but the other link is fine.


Lives of great men all remind us
   We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
   Footprints on the sands of time.
