The commitment to answer a question yesterday got over run by the 1st ever presidential debate right here in the pearl of Africa and was it fun or what?
Right now am trying really hard not to make this about the debate where by the way I learnt some profound lessons.
1. President Museveni doesn’t give a damn about all you urbanites and your version of democracy..
He is not debating with the rest of you folks who think he needs to retire.
He is too busy campaigning in a place where after 30 years people neither have a television nor care who Allan Kasujja is.
Actually they are the ones who vote.
He is like..
Mabirizi is just the best. He taught me that you don’t have to know sh*t to run for president in this country.
Who vets these people? How in the name of everything that is good did he end up here?
He could have been in his own version of Fun Factory at this point
But he gets an A for effort and for being a part of history..
He took a plunge.. He may have hit his head but hey he showed up.
3. Don’t trust Amama Mbabazi.. This guy’s arrogance is almost attractive.
I kept waiting for a single moment when he would take one chance to own up to his reign of terror and corruption, before he turned into a woman scorned and nothing.
He dodged the tough questions and even asked tougher questions..
His answer to whether he supports gay people was somewhere in the region of if you think think am gay, feel free to come and take it for a spin…
4. You have to hand it to a general who uses sports metaphors.. General Biraro taught me that presidential debate or not always carry your sense of humor
5. The judiciary should hire Professor Venasius Baryamureeba.
I know for a fact that court registries are rotting with decades worth of files.
Wouldn’t it be nice to put “Mr I am a professor of IT” on it..
God knows my job would be way easier if every court file was a click away. .
He could even create an app for it.
6. When your the only lady in a battlefield with men, the best strategy is to completely go off script, come armed with your answers and deliberately disregard the questions.
She did a pretty good job of telling us what she stands for..
Who cares about oil and policy when the grass is greener on one side of the Nile right? ( Some one hand this girl a seat in parliament for the Eastern region already)
7. Dr Kizza Besigye’s entire manifesto might as well be named “The Museveni Hate Speech”
I mean he just can’t help himself but point out what’s wrong with this government
Which makes me wonder, has he been too busy finding out what’s wrong that he has had no time to manufacture great ideas? ( A lot of people have criticised him for being weak on matters of policy but then again doesn’t he have a point?)
8. Dr. Abed Bwanika takes all. He slayed that debate. He did his homework and proved that he knows his stuff.
He was eloquent, smart and answered every question without a shade of ambiguity.
The rest of the bunch sure can pick a leaf or better still uproot the whole tree.
He was amazing and my absolute favorite
If president’s were determined by debates then ladies and gentlemen I present to you His Excellency Dr Abed Bwanika.
On a completely unrelated note I have a question to answer from http://www.atimmercy.wordpress.com which is
“Stay home mum or career woman? “
The career shall definitely be pursued from every angle.
Because its the reason I pump my head with all kinds of laws and all other related matters everyday regardless of the weather, mood or amounts of sleep.
Because my kids need to know that being a great mother doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your dreams.
Because there is too much the world has to offer beyond the matrimonial home.
Because I don’t want to wake up somewhere in my forties and realise that my life passed me by..
Because every woman is so much more than the name by her Mrs and the children she bears.
Because it’s not the 70s anymore and so we don’t roll like that.
Because some one is going to get themselves in lots of trouble some day and am going to have the absolute sheer joy of getting them out of jail.
Because all those amazing suits, bags and heels aren’t going to wear/carry themselves..
Because I can…
Because Mother Dearest was not a stay home mum, and I don’t know if you have met me but I turned out pretty awesome …
