Re: Canada must stop sending money to the Uganda government to support dictator Yoweri Kaguta Museveni
On this day, the whole world will remember that there has been rampant hunger in Uganda and on this day, Ugandans had purchased food and loaded up trucks to deliver it to two communities. Katakwi and Toroma which are in the most neglected part of Uganda in the East heading towards Karamoja.
We have pictures of dictator Museveni unleashing tear gas and live bullets on the people who were distributing food to the hungry. We have videos of the brutality.
The last time you received a letter from me was after the Kasese massacre which is well documented including the most recent report from Human Rights Watch saying people were slaughtered.
My friends and I are not asking for anything other than suspending all aid to Uganda. When you think you help Uganda, you empower a notorious killer regime to kill some more.
This picture has been shared around the world of the police arresting an elderly gentleman for daring to come to the trucks to get some food.
While you as our leader uses Canadian tax payer money to feed the refugees flocking into Uganda, you forget that President Yoweri Museveni is a War Monger and The Great Lakes Region has never seen such atrocities till this man came on the scene. Do the history and you will see. Museveni invades countries to cause an influx of refugees so that donors with bleeding hearts can give money. Mind you, he also sends his army to apparently restore peace in those countries because he is paid per head of the soldier.
For decades, you have given money to Uganda. Pray tell us why the people are still impoverished, sick and hungry. Why do they have so much crime that their top officers and senior people in government get gunned down in broad daylight? We should not even get into the killings of the Moslem Clerics or the daily land grabbing.
You make a very big mistake to support this thug regime. One day your children will ask you why you kept sending money to a ruthless regime. The Canadian tax payers need to know how the tax payers’ money is spent and I am going to inform as many as listen that Canada is on record for supporting some of the most horrible atrocities in the world starting with my people.
By the way, it was the Minister of Disaster Preparedness who ordered the Shoot To Kill to the food distributors and people who tried to come and get the food. All my work is documented on my blog and now on the news site www.perilofafrica.com.
