It started like a joke to some of us and we did not take it seriously given that previous such organised things heavily publicized on Social Media have come to nothing but from the looks of it, this one might be serious.
The Ugandan government has taken charge of this revolution.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni this week nabbed some high level officers in the Ministry of Finance for corruption. This comes as great news for the organisers knowing that the president is now joining their revolution.
The Ministry of Works has also sacked the Managing Director for the Civial Aviation Authority over incompetence. If this isn't a revolution then what else is?
In another move, IGP Kale Kayihura has reshuffled the top police force and even fired his personal assistant. Things are shaping up really well.
On the other hand, Dr. Stella Nyanzi and Mrs. Janet Kataha Museveni are embroiled in a fight for humanity. One wants to give pads to all the girls while the other one wants Food Flasks for all school going children as well as cars for parents to drive their children to school so that they can avoid those notorious criminal boda bodas.
While on this discussion on efficiency and change, one Ruhakana Rugunda called an emergency meeting with Ministers to get to the bottom of why the Economy is in trouble. Apparently it is now all Buy Made in Uganda. Hallelujah! At least the Rolex stands were not kocked down and now that Nakivubo is gone, everyone can vend their merchandise from their mizigo in the slums of Kampala. Middle Income Status is for real.
In other developments, Uganda National Road Authority (UNRA) is going to spend $40 million to combat gender violence. This likely means they are going to educate rapists that it is wrong to rape women even if you are Chinese. What would be interesting would be if verification of valid work permits is done. Oh, how many pads and food flasks could we buy with $40 million? It is the fault of those who let criminals get away with impunity but the day is nigh. We are going to install CCTV cameras along all roads and make Mexico pay for it.
Mzee Kaguta is not a joking matter. He has vowed to end Urban Terrorism starting with Kampala. Incidentally, it is possible that KCCA does not even know that they are in trouble. Send out all the Crime Promoters mzee, we are making progress. Sorry, I meant Crime Preventers. Slip of the tongue.
Oxfam is joining the revolution by exposing that Rich Ugandans own 35.7% of the country's wealth. The question then becomes, who owns the other 60% based on the assumption that the remaining Ugandans only own 4.3%? The Mafia is real!
Then the schools. Exactly who told you people that Ugandans will let their kids go to schools which are shacks and have no pit latrines or water? Whatever happened to the good old habit of going to the bush and learning under a mango tree? Bring Back Real Education and #MakeUgandaGreatAgain! You do also have the option of sending your kids to the great schools in Kampala area that have all amenties. So what if 1300 schools have been closed so far and more are to be closed? Teach the kids under trees so they can feel the cool breeze of fresh air and have the rain pour down on them and wash away our sins!
Time to check in with #TVO, aka SHAKA for the progress on this new change which is sweeping the country from the hilltops of Mount Rwenzori to the tip of Mount Masaba! Did we hear Gashumba's voice yet? We wait to also hear from UPFF and SCOF.
