Ugandans in some parts of the country, especially Kampala, where the Police  are  frequently in running battles with opposition and some civil society groups over disobedience.


The vision of democracy and freedom can be hijacked due to lack of national unity and reconciliation among the people.

The solution will never be an eye for an eye because it will not work. The solution must be to reconcile, work together, unite, listen to each other, respect each other, talk and we will find the answer.

I suggest that national reconciliation council to be set up to bring different factions together for a better Uganda and to debate issues that are of national interest. This council must include all people and must be functioning in the way that our people can see peace and unity.

We cannot continue fighting each other and yet we have a lot to do for the future of this country and the young generation. Let’s address the issue on national unity by putting our difference aside for a better Uganda.    

We can talk to each other to find the common solution for a common problem and other challenges that we face.

When we are united we will encourage foreign investors, tourists and create more jobs and increase peoples incomes to better their livelihoods. Why can’t the Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago and Rtd Col Kizza Besigye work with President Museveni for the benefit of Ugandans and the country at large? It is better to save the revenue we lose every day in battles and fighting in the streets of Kampala.
