On the Correct line?, Kiggundu’s Election prayers, Hon.Mafabi and LAVIT.
I did not know any of FDC President Rtd. Col. Dr. Besigye’s siblings apart from Musasizi Kifefe who died after endless battles in court and detention in Luzira prison and numerous safe houses over terrorism/ treason charges. Am sure not so many people knew either. So Dr. Olive Kobusigye, Dr. Kiiza Besigye’s younger sister’s book – The Correct Line? Under General Museveni has kicked off a mini storm in the mainstream media and in
Engineer Badru Kiggundu and his team organized a prayer session at Kololo airstrip to pray for peace and stability before, during and after the 2011 general elections. Why is kiggundu calling on divine intervention for guidance and support during next year’s Presidential and Parliamentary elections? I think the guy is preparing us and asking God to help him be strong enough to announce a Dr. Besigye victory come February 2011. You wonder why Kiggundu and Co. seem worried this time round. In the last two General elections, they have been at fault - not reigning on NRM candidates acting with impunity, hijacking polling stations and materials, beating up, arresting, intimidating and killing opposition candidates, agents and supporters. The courts of law have put this on record. And kiggundu is not your 100m athlete or budding footballer that you can argue will get better with time. He seems to perform poorly with each passing year. But like any elite professional, he seems bent on redeeming his legacy and thus is calling on God to give him the guts to declare Dr. Kiiza Besigye winner next time round. The NRM folks seem to have smelt this already, no wonder their Chairman and party top dogs, snubbed this national prayer event at Kololo. Keep your fingers crossed, 2011 is not for the faint hearted.
In light of next year’s Presidential and General elections, if the electoral commission ensures and delivers a fair contest in this political arena of ours, two gentlemen will be back in the august house. Hon Nandala Mafabi, MP for Budandiri East and also chairperson of Public Accounts Committee (PAC), and Hon. Nabetta Igeme, MP for Jinja West and more importantly Director/ Project Manager of the LAVIT project (
