LOVE WINS: A DECADE OF LOVE


It is with great Joy that I finally get to write about something that I care about so much—there is no life in a world where there is no love. This is a very astonishing statement yet proven a thousand times every day of our Lives. In one of the Elizabethan theatre plays I did in my literature class in high school, THE TWELFTH NIGHT, Duke Orsino who had suffered from unrequited love laments: “If music be the food of love, play on”. For  Jovitah and I, our Love story is that which defines the audacity of Hope when it comes to Love—we live each day with utmost faith that we will row with the current to the finish line when we finally say, I do and live a happily ever-after. There is a song by Taylor Swift, LOVE STORY; it could best explain our love story. I can fetch a few lines that always melt our hearts every time we listen to it:
“We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flash back starts:
I’m standing on the balcony in summer air
………………………………………………
Romeo, save me, they’re trying to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult but it’s real.
Don’t be afraid, we’ll make it out of this mess.
It’s a Love story, baby just say, “Yes”

A TRIBUTE TO Dr.BESIGYE & HIS PHENOMENAL WIFE, WINNIE BYANYIMA.

A CLINCHER: “Peace is indeed harder than war. Its constant fragility is part of its beauty. A bullet need only happen once but for Peace to work we need to be reminded of its existence again and again”—POTUS OBAMA, while speaking in Belfast Ireland (2013).

This tribute will open with one of my favorite words that guide me in doing that which I believe I have been called here to do and it sets the tone for all there is to the millions of words in this piece. The great Randy Alcon in a very well-knit piece of work, SAFELY HOME, writes—on Pg.89:
 “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep the streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare composed poetry. He should sweep the streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause and say, ‘Here lived a great sweeper, who did his job well”.

THE EROSION OF CIVIL LIBERTIES: A DIRECT ATTACK ON THE CONSTITUTION.

A very important point of reference to begin with, the awesome words of A.J.DarkHome: “The values most important to us are always the most easily exploitable”

In the book, THE JOURNEY IS HOME, the renowned theologian Nelle Murton has these words: “Welcome to the Human Race”. It is now very clear that the Museveni government is not in any way going to respect the constitutional rights and Freedoms of the people. It is a shame that a nation which to begin with has God inclusive in the national creed continues to defile terribly everything there is to human decency and Personhood. For a while now this has gone on and yet the populace watches on. I do not blame myself. I have done my part and if anything I don’t like, that many of us hate, I will not have myself to blame. I warned you of foisting a tyrant and demagogue to nation in the call to do the math on the P10 Website and certainly, the agents of darkness didn’t take heed. Uganda is a very young nation but if we don’t drop the childish ways as the scripture says, we are headed into something we may regret the next half century.
Quickly, the most idiotic thing the Museveni government has done is waging war on the media houses. This is not funny. It is one of the dumbest and smartest strategies that I have seen especially when it comes to them trying to cover their ‘rabid asses’ but fantastically embarrassing themselves—because every time they do that, like they did earlier during the elections, they lay bare the hypocrisies they have long tried to sweep under the rug. The media is significantly very important by every stretch of imagination. If I were them actually, I would stop being stupid at least for once, and let the world judge the story rightfully: the Museveni government have reached a point where they have no shame and remorse—they expose their ugliness in broad daylight and annoyingly ask, what do you even think you can do?

PRAY UNCEASINGLY, THUS SAYETH THE LORD.





We shall open with a quote from Billy Budd, sailor from the complete short Fiction by Herman Melville: “Truth uncompromisingly told will always have its rugged edges; hence the conclusion of such a narration is apt to be less finished than an architectural finial
Mr.Museveni and his agents have something that troubles me so very much—their bed of lies—they have fortified a perimeter with a thick layer of egg shells and they expect anyone who comes near to it to tiptoe with caution. And the agents present Museveni as a very delicate flower to us—they demand a very hard thing for me to offer: to be cuddled and coddled at the same time. I have been wondering why our leaders have made it their job to quell down all possibilities of an external audit of the election results but I found a very simple theory: Candidate Museveni & his minions know that he didn’t win the election, so he has to condescend and peddle fiction as much as he can.The French revolutionary Jean Jacques Roseau put it very accurately for you and I: “Falsehood has an infinity of combinations but the Truth has one mode of being”.
