An Impoverished population is easy to rule over and control. A country where the majority do not read or learn of want to know information is a sure guarantee of non development.
This is my second year trying to understand #Uganda. Not that my people cannot read and we do have a democracy as we elect our president with each term.
What I find as a hindrance to Uganda's development is the people who do not read and do not want to read. They are much too contented in their poverty and the country cannot develop with such people. I have watched many other Ugandans who care (in the country and in the diaspora) and try to inform and educate. Yet many of them face nothing but abuses from people who can even barely communicate in the country's official language - ENGLISH. Then so many complain about unemployment. Yes, we have over 80% unemployment but if you write horribly and abuse anyone and everyone who could help you, then how do you dare ask the government to help you get a job. How many of you have even written business plans or project proposals? Yet when asked to write such a thing, you cannot because you have taken the easy path of blaming Museveni for everything.
I am aware too that education in Uganda is not the best. Well, then why do you not apply for the opportunities to study abroad like the kids of the rich people in your country? How many times have I posted scholarship and education opportunities abroad only to be told that "it does not load on my phone, can you do the applications for me?". Take a step back. If the government favours certain tribes and families, then why do you not use the information we give you where it is you alone for those scholarships without any government intervention? It is your life. ENOUGH. Wake up. We need to all wake up if we want a better Uganda.
