Most Youth have become stepping stones for money wielding people, with selfish interests, most youth are being used or have been used before to create wins for other people and later forgotten or dropped, after the winners get sworn into offices, the age group becomes susceptible victims of peanuts in the political waves.
We all see Muzei (President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni) almost retiring but it’s better for us to search ourselves, get organised to be in all inclusive leadership of the country from our elders.
The senior youth need to build a force trusted by this aged outgoing leadership, so us to be guided or be recommended on the right path without emotions, which is seen to be appkied by rowdy group of extremists who may not have issues of the country at heart, but selfish interests to appease there egos or to revenge there personal feelings, since they may have been either dropped or ignored by the regime due to over expectations.
Let’s learn to see the country we would want after us, What do we want our children to inherit from us? What kind of country are we leaving for the next generation after us?
Let’s not allow ourselves to be used by those without clear plan for the country, they maybe coming to destroy the little Mr Museveni has built because all they need is power to show off or to appease some people, but not to serve the nation, Uganda needs listening all inclusive leadership but not showbiz or appeasing leaders.
Lets search ourselves, build team willing to improve and do better than Mr museveni in terms of infrastructure, development, peace, unity, and social political inclusiveness for all.
Musevenis time is up, but we should make him retire peacefully by listening to his voice, let’s take this time to organise one voice and negotiate for ourselves or struggle hard to be part of the transitions but not to be used by people with low thinking holding money.
Let’s put our heads together and get a trusted formidable force and this should cut across political divides, both NRM and opposition within the above age bracket.
We need to wake up and demand inclusiveness, avoid being used, Uganda is here to stay.
Let’s prepare a better country for next generation other than destroying it by supporting extremists, unruly, intolerant, and un advisable group of adults, masquerading to be new generation, pushing their egos, in the name of transition.
