SIR- Mr Museveni has been, simply put, the saviour of this country. It has been his courage in the face of considerable adversity that has freed us from murderous regimes. He has put long-term national interests before vote catching. For instance, his principled stand on federo and graduated tax. I laud Museveni's determination to stick to 'unpopular' policy, like taxation despite the temporary unpopularity it earns him. No government can run without taxes despite what Museveni's detractors are saying. One of the duties of high office is the ability to make unpopular decisions for the good of the majority. Liberalisation of the economy has greatly improved our treasury. Universal Primary Education has led to a veritable explosion of private schools, thus creating employment. Given another five years, this should have been translated into greater purchasing power for all Ugandans. For a large number of Ugandans, the last 15 years have been a great opportunity, a period of relative peace and prosperity. But for the native business person it has been a harrowing time. Perhaps Mr Museveni will think of giving Ugandan business people some of the tax breaks foreign investors enjoy. Lastly, I have lived the last 15 years safe in the knowledge that as long as Museveni is piloting the ship of state, there will be a good future for my children. Kibale Kalebbo Busia
