I have read a piece in the local press depicting Kabaka Muwenda Mutebi as a scapegoat. I think this is a warped view of the presidency and of President Museveni as the office bearer.

The unrest that took place in Kampala has little to do with the Kabaka or his standoff with the central government.

The Kabaka’s failure or inability to go to Kayunga had nothing to do with looting businesses in Kampala and harassing non-Baganda who are a part of a progressive business class in cosmopolitan Kampala.

Whoever raises unrest in a business centre is not judged according to his/her motivation but the negative outcome of such unrest.

It is unfortunate that the leniency of Uganda Police and UPDF in handling the demonstrators has been taken for granted.

Those boys who threw stones at armed police/army men would be dead now if there had been no restraint.

You don’t need to be an armyman to know that that kind of provocation attracts deadly returns. Indeed by now, we would have more numbers among the dead compared to the arrested.

The writer is wrong to suggest that the private sector which Museveni has aggressively promoted is falling out with him.

Let the writer give reasons why a Ugandan businessman would be against President Museveni.
