Calling President Museveni a liar does not make him one

The Sunday Monitor of August 29, 2021, published an article were the writer Musazi Namiti claimed that the Death of General Lokech was suspicious due to lack of trust in Leaders.

However in his biggest reason of thinking, he did not provide any argument that held water in that context other than pouring out a sentimental innuendos not any different from what he writes often.

He zeroed down on the smallest bit that questioned the pathologistโ€™s post mortem report. ย The post mortem report was carried out and approved in the presence of the Generalโ€™s family members.

Carrying away people from the issues at hand and politicizing even the smallest issue has become a trend among columnists who seem to have run out of ideas to present. Namiti in his seniority, this time has chosen to join that category.

In his opinion โ€œGen Lokechโ€™s death is suspicious because trust in leaders is dead.โ€ He argues that President Yoweri Museveni has in the past deliberately said things that are not true.

He highlights example of a video that he saw last year days after Rwandaโ€™s 26th genocide anniversary and appears to claim that President Museveni harbored rebels that later on overthrew Habyarimana even when he had promised that he would not do so.

The big question is?ย  Should Uganda fight wars of that nature? Has Uganda stopped relating with Congo because ADF rebels have used it as a haven to launch attacks on Uganda?

We shall not focus to answer some of these questions when the President in the interview with France based TV 24 Journalist, said that the one who closed the borders between Uganda and Rwanda is the one fit to answer them. But to Musazi, why then did he close the boarders if Museveni helped him against his predecessor.

The burden of responding to a presumably experienced scribe like Musazi on obvious and easy to comprehend issues is exhausting and it is more annoying when he chooses to become a liar. The media should stop being misused by people who have the space.

I challenge you Namiti to write an opinion article if you are not the liar, and highlight the achievements and accord credit to the president where he has scored.ย  I am sure this is going to be a challenge to your Monitor editors.ย  That is if they will actually go ahead to publish it.

The president you are calling a liar the same that has over seen Uganda increase its road cover less than 1000Kms to over 7000kms as we speak. He is the one that has led to a legislation where women now are more than 50 percent represented. He is the one that has defended the nation from instability. He is the one that has offered you the freedom of speech and press that you are using against him when he liberalized the media in 1992. The man you are calling a liar has been true to his cause by uniting the regions even with the underlying challenges.

It is the children that forget that they could not have existed without their father, that kill him in order to inherit his property. It is time the media and writers started reporting our nations affairs framed in our local context.ย  Itโ€™s not a level of independence when our style of writing and reporting is still the CNN, BBC or Al Jazeera style which Namiti employs.
