UGANDA'S MEDICAL BRAIN DRAIN IS A GLOBAL PROBLEM:

December 14, 2016

Written by PETER MUWONGE

Health experts from across Africa have expressed dismay at the failure by Uganda’s government to stem the tide of skilled health workers leaving the country for greener pastures.

They voiced their disappointment during the third Congress of the African Health System Governance network (ASHGOVNET) in Kampala last week. The congress was held under the theme,“Fostering capacity for health governance and leadership with a focus upon health work development.”

The health experts argue that if the current hemorrhage of the country’s workforce continues unchecked, it will be extremely difficult for Uganda to fulfill its commitment to regional and global Human Resources protocols such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) Workforce 2030 Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health to which Uganda subscribes.

“It is disappointing that officials at Uganda’s ministry of Health (MOH) evaded all our efforts to discuss the extent of the problem of medical brain drain in this country and the possible measures to bring it under control,” said Dr Patrick Kadama, the executive director of the African Platform on Human Resources for Health (APHRH), an NGO committed to the fight against brain drain on the African continent.

Uganda subscribes to the road map for scaling up human resources for health for improved health service delivery in the African region 2012-2025, which was adopted by African health ministers three years ago in Angola. But experts say the evident apathy towards brain drain means health improvement targets are unlikely to be met.

“No one seems to care when health workers exit this country. When you express worry about the problem to MOH officials, they tell you there is a capacity to replace those who have migrated, when it is actually not true,” said the president of the Uganda National Academy of Sciences, Dr Nelson Sewankambo.

Mr Severino Lukoya walks out of Gulu Central Police Station last year after briefly being detained following the death of a child at his temple.

UGANDA, GULU

AGAGO:


From casting himself as the untouchable almighty god (Lubanga Won) in late 1980s, it now required the intervention of an earthly police force in Agago District to save the father of late Holy Spirit Movement leader Alice Auma Lakwena from an angry mob.

The mob accused Mr Severino Lukoya Kibero, a self-proclaimed prophet, of preaching what they termed as false prophesies in their area and wanted to lynch him.

Mr Lukoya had travelled with his team of ministers to Kalongo Town Council to conduct door-to-door prayers, claiming that God had sent him to cleanse the area. Mr Lukoya is the leader of the New Jerusalem Tabernacle Church in Gulu Municipality where he preaches a mixture of Acholi traditional religion, Christianity and Islam.

It’s reported that before Mr Lukoya could embark on ‘redeeming’ prayer sessions, hundreds of angry residents confronted him and he was only rescued by the police who whisked him away to safety in neighbouring Pader District, several miles away.

Mr Albert Onyango, the Agago District police commander said: “Residents hate him because of the past rebellion his daughter led. They also believe Lukoya is a cult leader whose presence brings bad omen.”

Mr Onyango said Mr Lukoya’s activities in Agago District were in violation of a district council resolution that barred setting up of any prayer shrines.

“I think it is time Lukoya realised that he is not wanted in the district. This is the fourth time in less than two years that people are attempting to kill him,” Mr Onyango said.

Earlier last week, Mr Lukoya had told Sunday Monitor in an interview that God had called him out to walk on foot and do a door-to-door preaching until he covers the entire country.

“God wants peace to prevail in Uganda. He wants everyone to accept His word,” Lukoya said.

This is not the first time Lukoya’s activities are being stopped by residents and district leaders in Acholi sub-region for fear that his preaching could brainwash young people into another rebellion.

Background
After the defeat of Lakwena, Mr Lukoya launched another Holy Spirit Movement in Acholiland. But unlike Lakwena, Mr Lukoya didn’t attract the same big following as his daughter. He surrendered to the government in 1989, but has continued to re re-emerge from time to time.

In August 2011, Mr Lukoya and his followers survived death when residents hurled stones at them injuring him and his followers in Mucwini Kitgum District. In March 2015, police in Gulu District arrested Mr Lukoya over an illegal assembly after he and his church members stormed Gulu Town and disrupted traffic and businesses.

In August 2014, authorities in Kitgum District demolished Lukoya’s temple after complaints that a paralysed man had died while being prayed for there.

In 2008, Mr Lukoya was arrested on accusation that he wanted to revive his daughter’s Holy Spirit Movement rebel outfit. But the High Court acquitted him and awarded him Shs13 million in damages for malicious arrest.

The African self made Republic of Uganda demands apology from Kenya over Bobi Wine protests:

August 30, 2018

Written by Josephine Namuloki

Government through the East African Affairs ministry has written to the parliament of Kenya demanding that its legislators apologise for allegedly abusing Uganda President Yoweri Museveni.

Last week, some Kenyan MPs threatened to stage demonstrations in Kampala if the Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine was not released within a week’s period. Kyagulanyi was arrested alongside over 33 others on allegations that they had stoned Museveni's convoy. The suspects have since been charged with treason and granted bail.

With allegations of torture of the suspects particularly Kyagulanyi and Mityana MP Francis Zaake, daily demonstrations erupted in Uganda and abroad - with Kenyan youth being very vocal over the issue, arguing that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Kyagulanyi was initially charged with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition in an Army court in Gulu and remanded to Makindye military barracks in Kampala. The charges against the MP were later dropped but he was subsequently charged in the Magistrate's court with treason.

According to Daily Nation, Kenyan lawmakers including Jared Okelo (Nyando), Babu Owino (Embakasi East) and Gideon Keter (nominated) of the Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association said they would first stage a protest against the arrest and torture of Kyagulanu at the Ugandan embassy in Kenya before escalating it into Uganda.

Now, ruling party lawmakers in Uganda are demanding that action be taken against the Kenyan MPs for what they called meddling into the affairs of a sovereign state.

East African Affairs state minister Julius Maganda Wandera told the parliamentary committee on East African Community Affairs yesterday that 'action' had already been taken against the Kenyan MPs.

Unsatisfied by the minister’s verbal ‘action taken’ statement, Rukiga Woman MP Caroline Kamusiime Muhwezi insisted on knowing what action had been taken against the MPs, whom she said used abusive language to the person of the President of Uganda, which to her was unacceptable.

“After the recent protests, the Kenyans including MPs came out and abused our president but nothing was done by the ministry. They were demanding our president to free Bobi Wine. Free Bobi Wine, as who?” Kamusiime said.

Daily Nation reported that while addressing the press on August 15 at Parliament Building in Nairobi, the lawmakers said they would speak out against abuse of human rights being meted out on Kyagulanyi and others following their arbitrary arrest in Arua.

Maganda said his ministry had through the Uganda parliament speaker Rebecca Kadaga, written to Kenyan parliament over that matter.

The minister concurred with Kamusiime that the reaction that emerged from MPs of Kenya calling for the release of the Ugandan MPs who had been arrested due to the violence in Arua was “more less undermining the position of the President of Uganda when they were using abusive language.”

“We as the ministry have already taken note of the comment which doesn’t sound so well at bi-lateral level where it is supposed to be encouraging Ugandans, Kenyans and East Africans… where we allow each partner state to keep its sovereignty and governance as much as we operate under a treaty for the establishment of the EA community,” Maganda said.

“We have written through the speaker of parliament to address her fellow speaker of Kenya so that they can make these MPs of Kenya to understand the rules of procedure and the diplomatic relationships and the messages that should be done especially when they are meant to address issues that pertain to the [other] state,” Maganda added.

He threatened that if the Kenyan parliament does not take action against the legislators, the ministry would not hesitate reaching Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta for redress.

“And we want a comment to come out officially either to retract that statement of the MPs or to apologise or else we might seek through our embassy to have these matters placed before the president of Kenya. We are not taking this matter lightly as a country and as a ministry. We are taking it as a serious matter,” Maganda said.

Maganda however said the action demanded by the ministry would not negatively affect the two countries’ relationship but there was need for Kenyan MPs to understand diplomacy.

“We want the MPs of Kenya to understand and appreciate that there is a diplomatic way how they should address matters that pertains to a partner state where you don’t have a bigger jurisdiction in their decision making,” Maganda said.

Prior to Arua suspects' release on Monday this week, religious leaders, Buganda kingdom, musicians, opposition leaders and foreign missions had issued strong statements against the torture of the suspects and general brutality of the presidential guards.

The US government in a statement reminded government that all the detained people have a right to humane treatment, due process, access to lawyers and to their families and a prompt and fair trial.

“We urge the government to show the world that Uganda respects its Constitution and the human rights of all its citizens,” the US statement said.

The European Union also weighed in condemning the violence that occurred before and after the by-election.

The European Union urged that the government, political parties and civil society should cooperate to ensure that the events that have caused much suffering to citizens and damaged the global image of Uganda are addressed swiftly and transparently.

What sort of governance exactly is Uganda and its friendly African countries exporting to Somalia and South Sudan?

 

It seems that this minister of state for Uganda has brought out the cat from the bag. Uganda, Burundi and Ruanda together with Kenya have been working hard in Somalia to bring some sort of tolerance and harmony to the two fighting political forces that have messed up their country like in Syria.

 

They are trying it in South Sudan. What if the present Somali government comes out and questions exactly what the troops of Uganda are doing standing well in their sovereign country for now over 10 years?

 

It is wrong for someone to blame others for ones sins.

 

The old Uganda political party the UPC taught M7 every thing that needs to be done to keep the Republic of Uganda as Obote declared it 1966.

 

Mengo and the State of Buganda have all kept silent about it for 50 years now so that those who want Uganda to stay as a Republic can enjoy their dream.

 

Today Mengo has said it clearly that it has been a victim of all the violence that the African Republicans have proudly instigated on the Ancient African Kingdoms and their peoples for now 50 years and they are still counting.

The long serving Inspector General of the Uganda Police forces has had his home at  Muyenga, Kampala, Uganda sealed off:

 

By Hadadi Mubiru of the Grapevine News

 

 

The residence of fallen Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura in Muyenga has been sealed off by heavily-armed military forces and Counter Terrorism personnel just after he was airlifted from his country home in Kasagama in Lyantonde to Mbuya.

Over 20 security operatives are searching Kayihura’s home both inside and outside.

 

Defence spokesperson Richard Karemire was seen at Muyenga and when asked by our reporter Hadadi Mubiru asked him why the army had sealed off the place, he jokingly told journalists that they have just come to pay a visit and are doing their job just like the journalists are doing.

While his house is being searched, Kayihura is allegedly currently being quizzed by his boss the Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi at the General Headquarters- Mbuya.

The following year all responsibilities and powers were passed over to The Electoral Commission after the introduction of a multiparty system of democracy. Where the National Movement system of governance metamorphosed into a new single political party and was hurriedly registered under this current electoral commission as one of the current political parties of Uganda . Over 30 political parties were registered apart from Kabaka Yekka. This is the reason given by the letter of the Electoral Commissioner.

Please refer to the above outlined subject.

According to available records you were advised by the Assistant Registrar of Parties, to change name because Kabaka Yekka was likely to be confused with the Kingdom of Uganda in contravention of the Provisions of Sections 5(1)(a) and 16(1) of the Political Parties and Organizations Act 2005.

 

This is therefore to reiterate the advice earlier given to you regarding this matter.

Mukuwulizinganya omusango banamatteeka bano okuva kubyebaali bateseza bayongerako no kwogera mu kkooti.

Nze nga Omulamuzi kambitwale mumaddinganwa gaabyo.

Okugaana kw’Omuwaabirwa asooka okuwandiisa ekibiina kya Kabaka Yekka kuwubisa, na kumenya mateeka gebitundu 72 (1) ne 29 (1) (e) mu Ssematteeka era ekikolwa ekyo kikomekkerezebwe kivewo.

Ms Luswata-Kawuma kulwabawaabira yayongera okukigumiza nti Omuwaabirwa asooka okugaana okuwandiisa ekibiina kya Kabaka Yekka kikontana ne kitundu 72 (1) ekya Ssematteeka. Ekitundu kino kiwa obuyinza obutajjulira omutuuze we nsi ya Uganda okuwandiisa ekibiina ye kyaba ayagadde. Era mukugaana kuno okuwanndiisa ekibiina kino Omuwaabirwa ono amenya etteeka mu kitundu kya Ssematteeka ekya 29 (1) (e) ekiwa eddembe abantu okukolagana nga bo bwebaba basobodde mubibiina.

Munnamatteeka ono nategeeza kooti nga byonna ebyetagisa okukolebwa bwebyakolebwa, nga ekibiina kyobufuzi tekinaba kuwandiisibwa ebilambikiddwa mu tteeka erifuga ebibiina byobufuzi (PPOAct). Omuwaabirwa asooka yagaana okuwandiisa ekibiina. Ensonga zaawa azilaga mu bbaluwa jeyawandiika nga abulira Abawabi bano nti erinya “Kabaka Yekka” lyali lijja kutabulatabula n’ Obwakabaka bwa Buganda mu kumenya amateeka agali mu katundu 5(1) (a) ate ne mu katundu 16 (1) mu tteeka lya PPO Act.

Okusinziira ku munnammatteeka ono, Omuwaabirwa ono teyalaga engeri obutundu bunno jebwamenyaamu etteeka lino. Akayana nagamba nti abakulira ekibiina kino era nabo ba members abakirimu tebali mu lukalala lwabantu abogerwako nga abaganibwa mu katundu aka 16 (1) mu tteeka lino. Agatako nti obwa member bwe kibiina kino tebuli mu muttemwa ogugaanibwa mu katundu kano 5 (1) (a) mu tteeka lya PPO Act. Okusinziira ku bujjulirwa obwo Muwaabira asooka obwa member bwe kibiina bulaga enfanana ennungamu nga eva mu Districts 19 ezilungamya ebitundu byamawanga ebitaano ebiri munsi ya Uganda . Tewali nakamu ekiraga nti waliwo okwawula oba okukubira oludda kuludda lwa Bakyala bokka oba oludda lwa Baami oba okusosola mu mawanga. Kino kikakasa nga ekibiina bwekirina byonna ebyetaagibwa mukuzimba eggwanga mubujjuvu. Yasaba kkooti erowooze nyo kumuganyulo gwobutundu buno 5 (1) ate ne 16 (1) mutteeka lya PPO Act nomulimu gwabwo nga esinziira mu makulu ga Ssematteeka wa Uganda .

Okuggumizza kukino yaleetayo okyokulabirako ekyomusango gwa Attorney General lweyawoza omusango ne Salvatori Abuki nga ajjulira mu Ssematteeka ku number 1. mu mwaka 1998.

Munnamatteeka ono akiggumiza nti omuganyulo oguva mu Ssematteeka kwe ku kulakulanya eggwanga erya Democracy, eryesigamiziddwa mu kwegatta, mubwenkanya bwabantu nokugenda mumaaso kwabwe nga bemalirira mubuyinza bwabwe obwabantu abakulu aberowoolereza. Munnamatteeka anyonyola nti mukutuula kwo Muwabirwa asooka ye nasalawo okugaana okuwandiisa ekibiina nga akozesa obutundu 5 (1) (a) ate ne 16 (1) obwetteeka lya PPO Act amenya matteeka ga Ssematteeka agakuuma obuvunanyizibwa nobuyinza bwabantu obulembekeddwa mu bitundu 72 (1) ne 29 (1) (e) mu Ssematteeka wa Uganda .

Munnamatteeka ono asaba kkooti ekirizze okuwaabira kuno.

Munnamatteeka awolereza eggwanga lya Uganda okuwabirwa kuno takukiriza. Aggummizza bulungi nti okusalawo kwa chairman wakakiiko akakola kubyokulonda era nga ye muwalaabirwa asooka yasalawo mubutuufu obutawandiisa kibiina kirina linya lino erya Kabaka Yekka. Ensonga gyeyawa nga agamba nti abantu babulijjo abakulu nga ate bateegera bulungi bajja kutabulatabula erinya lino Nobwakabaka bwa Buganda .Era bwekityo mungeri eyo ekikolwa kino kijja kumenya obutundu 5 (1) (a) (b) ate ne 16 (1) obuli mu tteeka lya PPO Act. Era okusalawo kuno tekulina bwekumenya matteeka nakugaddibaganya mu bitundu bya Ssematteeka 72(1) ne 29 (1) (e). Munnammatteeka ono ayongerako nagamba nti enjogera ettegerekeka mubujjuvu bwokuvunnula Ssematteeka, Ssematteeka yenyini alina okutwalibwa wamu nga omuganda ogumu.

Nagamba nti newankubadde waliwo okuweebwa obuyinza obujjuvu okukola ebibiina byobufuzi mukitundu kino 72(1) ekya Ssematteeka naye ate obutundu (2) ne (3) nabwo bukwtagana nekitundu kino. Ye Munnammatteeka ono mukulowoozakwe agamba nti Ekitundu 72 kiteekeddwa okusomebwa awamu. Ayongerako nti ekitundu 72 (2) ne (3) mu Ssematteeka bitteekwa okukolaganira awamu. Olunyiriri (2) lugamba nti tewali kibiina kijja kuddukanyizibwa okujjako nga kitukiriza ebyo Ssematteeka byakiririzaamu. Ebikiririzibwaamu biri okwegata, emirembe, okwenkanankana, democracy, neddembe. Ate ku lunyiriri (3) Parliament yattekebwawo okukola etteeka lyokulabirira enkola yebibiina byobufuzi. Olwensonga eyo Parliament nettekawo PPO Act nga etteeka.

Munnamatteeka ono agamba nti ekitundu 5(1) (a) ekyetteeka lya PPO Act ligaana omuntu yenna okukola ekibiina kyobufuzi nga kyesigamizzibbwa kubakyala bokka oba abasajja bokka, kumawanga, oba ku langi ezenjawulo ezabantu, ku ggwanga oba obuzaaliranwa, enzikiriza ye ddiini oba ebifananyiriza ng’ ebyo. Ekitundu 5(1) (b) nakyo kigaana okukola ekibiina kyobufuzi ekikozesa ebigambo oba enjogera oba obubonero ebiyinza okuleetawo enjawukana zonna ezinyonyolwako mu lunyiriri (a)

Agamba nti ekitundu 5(1) (a) ate ne (b) biteekwa okusomebwa awamu. Munnamatteeka ono ayongera nagamba nti okusinziira kukitundu 72(2) ekya Ssematteeka. Bwowandiisa ekibiina mu linya lya Kabaka Yekka oba oyonoona ensonga enkulu ddala eri mu kweggatta kubanga erinya ng’ eryo lireeta okusosola mumawanga kubanga Kabaka linya lya mufuzi we nnono omukulembeze mu bwa Kabaka bwa Buganda . Abantu abalowooza obulungi bajja kukitwaala nti akulira ennono ate wuno yeyingizza mu bibiina byobufuzi ekitakwatagana na kitundu 246(3) (e) ekya Ssematteeka ate era nekitundu 16 ekye tteeka lya PPOAct. Obwakabaka bwa Buganda nabwo bwagaana okuwandiisa ekibiina kyabawaabira bano nga “Kabaka Yekka.” Abawaaba bano bagana okukyusa erinya newankubadde nga baweebwa nyo amagezi bakyuse erinya.

Nolwekyo Awawabirwa asooka okugaana okuwandiisa ekibiina kyobufuzi ekya Kabaka Yekka talina kyamenya matteeka mu kitundu 72(1) ate era ne mukitundu 29(1) (e) ebiri mu Ssematteeka. Munamatteeka wa governmenti wano nasaba kkooti okugaana omusango guno.

Nga sinaddamu ensonga esooka nina okukakasa kunsonga enkulu ddala mukuvunula Ssematteeka ezitteekeddwa okulowoozebwako mu kkooti eno. Munnamatteeka owabawaabirwa aleese ensonga entuufu egamba nti bwoba ovunula Ssematteeka ekitabo kyonna olina okukitunulamu mubujjuvu. Ekyokulabirako kye kya Paul K. Ssemwogerere nebane ababiri nga bawoza ne Attorney General mukujjulira mu musango gwa No. 1. ogwa 2002 Omulamuzi Mulenga kulupapula 4 ne 5 wagambira bwati: Lino etteeka lya mugaso munene nyo bwoba ovunula Ssematteeka erigamba nti ebitundu bya Ssematteeka ebikwata kunsonga emu bitteekeddwa okukolagana so si okukontana. Ssematteeka asaanidde okusomebwa nga akwatagana nokugendera awamu. Kkooti enkulu eyo mu America(U.S.A) mu nsonga za Smith Dakota Vs North Caroline 192 US 279 (1940) nazo zalaga ensonga eno bweti:

Etteeka kulu ddala Ssematteeka bwaba nga azimbibwa nti tewasanye kwawulibwamu bitundu nebilowoozebwako byokka okuva kubinabyo naye kisanidde byonna ebibeera nga byogera kunsonga emu bileetebwe wamu mukulowoozebwako nokutunulibwaamu okusobola okulaga obulungi ekigendererwa ekyomumugaso mu kitundu kya Ssematteeka ono.

Tewali alina buyinza obwo okujjako kkooti ya Ssematteeka eweereddwa obuvunanyizibwa bwokutuukiriza obwenkanya buno.

Ebitundu mu Ssematteeka ebyo ebikwatagana ne ddembe erryannamma ddala, nga bwekiri mu musango guno bisaanidde okuweebwa okuvunnula okukkakkamu mundowooza yo buntu. Nga bwekigambibwa Omulamuzi Mayindo mumusango gwa Major General David Tinyefuza nga awoza ne Attorney General kumusango gwa Ssematteeka No1. mu 1996 kumuko gw’olupapula 16 agamba bwati:

Mukulowooza okwange ebitundu bya Ssematteeka bisanye okutwalibwa mpola nga tebitawanyizibwa munsonga ezamanyi enyo. Newankubadde nga lwo olulimi lwa Ssemateeka telukyuuka naye ate embeera zabantu zikyuuka neziwa amakulu amalala ebitundu bino.Ekitundu kya Ssematteeka ekikuuma eddembe lyobuntu eryomuwendo omunene ekitundu kino kibererawo emirembe gyonna. Kkooti kyeva esaana okubeera enegenderevu mukulaba nga ekwataganya ensonga eziwerako mukulungamya omugaso gwa mateeka gano eri abantu bonna nebyo byebaba bagala okutukiriza. Mubigambo ebirala Kkooti essaanide okugaziya so si kufunza ebitundu bya Ssematteeka bino. Ebitundu bino bisaanidde okukozesebwa mubugazi bwabyo okutukiriza eddembe lyobuntu kwabo abateekwa okufuna eddembe lino.

Omuwaabira yenna bwalaga obukakafu mukuyikirizibwa mutteeka nga lino eryeddembe atteekwa okuweebwa obuyinza bwe amangu ago.

Naye ate kkooti eyinza okugaana okumuwa obuyinza bwe singa ekizzuula nti mukifo kyokutwaala mumaaso eddembe lino nokulikozesa obulungi ate kijjawo ddembe nabutali bwenkanya. Oba kkooti bwekiraba nga tekiri nakamu mubwenkanya olwokubanga waliwo ebikolwa ebiguddewo nebikyuusamu kumbeera. Nze mukulowooza okwange mba siraba njawulo nnenne nyo wakati wobukulu bwe tteeka lyeddembe lino ate era netteeka eryabulijjo.

Mukwemulugunya kwabawaabira bano munsonga esooka bagamba nti ekikolwa ky’Awawabirwa asooka ekikolwa kyakola kiba kimenya ekitundu 72(1) ate era ne kitundu 29(1) (d) ebiri mu Ssematteeka.

Kambiwandiike nga bwebiri:

Ekitundu 72(1) kigamba bwekiti:

Okusinziira ku bitundu bya Ssematteeka omuntu waddembe okukola ebibiina byobufuzi nebibiina byonna ebirala ebyabulingeri era eddembe lino lyabwemage

Ekitundu 29(1) (e) kigamba bwekiti:

Buli muntu yenna alina eddembe; okwetaba munkolagana yonna era nokwetaba mukukola oba okwenyijira mubiina byonna oba bya Union mubusuubuzi nemukupakasa oba ebyobufuzi oba okkukkulakulanya eggwanga.

Ekitundu 72(1) kiweera ddala omutuuze wa Uganda okukola ekibiina kyobufuzi naye ate obuyinza buno bulina okukwatagana nensonga za Ssemmatteeka. Mukitundu kino kigenda mumaaso nekiwa ekyokukolerako mubitundu no. 2 ate era ne no. 3 bwekiti:

(2) Ekibiina kyonna tekijja kuddukkanyizibwa nga ekibiina kyobufuzi oba ekirala kyonna okujjako nga kimaze okutukiriza ebikulu ebilembekeddwa mu Ssemmatteeka era nga kiwandiisiddwa.

(3) Olukiiko lweggwanga mumatteeka lujjanga kulabiriranga enfuna ya sente awamu nemirimu gye bibiina bino ebyobufuzi.

Abawaabira bano kyebasinga okwemulugunyamu kwekukwasisa amateeka okuli mu kitundu 5(1) ate ne mukitundu no.(2) ne no. !6(1) ebiri mu tteeka erifuga ebibiina- PPOAct. Ensonga zino ziremesa okusaba kwabwe okuwandiisa ekibiina kya Kabaka Yekka.

Obuyinza bwa Bawaabira bano okukola ekibiina kyobufuzi buteekwa okulabibwaamu nebitundu ebiri mu tteeka lino PPOAct.ate era ne bitundu ebiri mu Ssematteeka.

Ssemmatteeka wa 1995 yesigamiziddwa ku nsonga enkulu enyo ezokwegatta, emirembe, nobwenkanya, democracy, eddembe nobuntu bulamu obusaanidde mubantu nga bukulakulanya nensi.

Ekitundu 5(1) eky’etteeka lya PPOAct. ligamba bweliti:

“Omuntu tajja kukola kibiina kya bufuzi oba ekibiina kyonna ekyengeri endala yonna-

a) Ababaka baakyo bwebaba nga besigamiziddwa ku musajja oba mukazi yekka, amawanga, langi oba eggwanga, obuzaaliranwa bwomuntu, eddini, oba ebyawula ebirala byonna, oba

b) Ababaka abakozesa ebigambo, enjogera, oba obubonero obuyinza okuleetawo enjawukana zonna ezinyonyoddwako waggulu mu katundu ka (a).

c) Ekitundu 16(1) ekye tteeka lya PPOAct omufuzi we nnono oba ow’okubuttaka takirizibwa kwenyigira mu bibiina byabufuzi byonna.

Akulira akakiiko ko kulonda nga omuwaawaabirwa asooka kyava yesigama kubitundu 5(1) (a) ate ne 16 (1) ebiri mu tteeka lya PPOAct nagaana okuwandiisa ekibiina kya Kabaka Yekka ekya bawaabira bano. Ensonga ye enkulu emuganyisa agamba nti kijja kuleetawo okutabulatabula mu Bwakabaka bwa Buganda awamu nokumenya amatteeka agali mu tteeka lya PPOAct.

Nze nga Omulamuzi simatiddwa nsonga za munammatteeka wabawaabira bano nti nga bwebamaze okukola buli kyetaagisa okusobola okuwandiisa ebibiina by’obufuzi mu Uganda nga bwekirambikiddwa mu kitundu no.7 mu tteeka lya PPOAct., omukulu wakakiiko kokulonda asaanidde okuwandiisa ekibiina nga tafuddeyo ku linya lyaakibiina ekyo. Nze kubwange nina endowooza eyange nti newankubadde nga ekibiina kino kirina ababaka baakyo mu districts 19 eza Uganda, era nga balina enjawulo mu langi, gyebava mubuzaaliranwa, ne ddiini, era nga mulimu abasajja na bakazi naye ate erinya kintu kikulu nyo. Omukulu wa kakiikiko akadukanya okulonda nga yaloopebwa yalina okusalawo okuwandiisa oba obutawadiisa kibiina kino mulinya lya Kabaka Yekka. Naddala nga waliwo ensonga entuufu olwekikolwa kye ekyo.

Kakati eno ye bbaluwa yomuwaabirwa asooka: Chairman w’akakiiko kebyokulonda mu Uganda

EKITUNDU 5(1)(B) EKYOMUTTEEKA LYA PPOACT EKITUNDU KINO KIGAANA OKUKOZESA EBIGAMBO EBIYINZA OKULEETAWO ENJAWUKANA OKUSINZIIRA MUMUKO OGWA (A). OMUKO GUNO 1(A) TEGUKIRIZA BANTU KUTABAGANA OKUSINZIIRA NEGYEBASIBUKA MUBUZALIRANWA BWABWE NEGGWANGA. NGA KABAKA WA BUGANDA BWALI OWE NNONO ATE NGA YE MUKKULU MUBUTTAKA BWA BUGANDA , OKUKOZESA ERINYA KABAKA KILEETA OBUTATEGERAGANA NOKWAWULAYAWULA MU BANTU.

Nzikiririza ddala mukusalawo kwamunammatteeka wo muwaabirwa asooka nti abantu babulijjo abalina endowooza entuufu batandiika okulowoolereza nti Kabaka wa Buganda yeyingiza mubibiina byobufuzi nga ate aganibwa mu kitundu kya 246(3)(e) ekya Ssemmatteeka wa Uganda . Ensonga eno eyinza okuleetawo enjawukana etetaagisa era nekileetawo okwekutulakutulamu okwabantu okutateekwa mu Ssemmatteeka wa Uganda alimu ensonga enkulu eyokwegata awamu.

Olwensonga eyo waggulu ninna okulowooza kwange nti okugaana kwomuwaabirwa asooka okuwandiisa ekibiina kyobufuzi ekya Kabaka Yekka kituufu era ekikolwa kye ekyo tekimenya kitundu kya tteeka 72(1) ne 29(1)(e) mu Ssemmatteeka. Abaloopa bano tebaganibwangako mubuyinza bwabwe obwanamwa ddala okwetaba mu kutuula nokukola ekibiina kyobufuzi. Ensonga esooka eyabwe njiganye era njigobye.

Kangende nate kunsonga eyokubiri:

Okugaana kwa wawabirwa asooka ono nga akozesa ekitundu kya 5(1)(a) ate ne kitundu kya 16(1) ekye tteeka lya PPOAct 2005 nga anyigiriza abawaabira bano nebatetayiza bulungi mubuyinza bwabwe neddembe lyabwe eribaweebwa mubujjuvu oba mukipimo kya democracy wa Bantu abeddembe ng Ssemmatteeka bwalagira.

Munnammatteeka wa bawaabira bano nga awoza yesigama kukitundu 43(2) (c) ekya Ssemmatteeka kunsonga eno eyokubiri. Obuyinza obuweebwa mukitundu kino ate nebukozesebwa okunyigiriza nokukotoggera abawaabi bano bussukawo mukulabirira eddembe lyobuntu mubantu abatudde obulungi munkolagana eya democracy. Munnamatteeka ayongera okuwoza nagamba nti obanga obuyinza bwe tteeka lino busanidde bwebutyo okunyigiriza abawaabi bano kkooti essanidde okusooka okulowooza kuddembe lino eriyimirizibbwa ate nobukulu bwe ddembe lino mubantu abatudde obulungi mu mbeera za democracy eyesigamye kuddembe lyobuntu nobwenkanya, ate era nekiseera nomugaso ebiri mu kuyimiriza eddembe lino.

Okusinziira kumunnammatteeka ono obuyinza bwabawaabira bano bukotoggeddwa era ensonga eno nkulu nyo. Abawaabi bano tebali mu kibinja kyabo abaganibwa abali mu kitundu no.5 ekyetteeka lya PPOAct. Agumizza nagamba nti okukola ebibiina byobufuzi ate era nokwetaba mukukolagana nabantu bonna abalina endowooza emu kikkulu ddala mu nsi. Nasaba kkooti ekirize omusango gwabawaabira bano.

Munnammatteeka wabawaabirwa ate ye nagaana. Agamba nti okukottogera nokugaana okuli mu kitundu 5(1)9a) ate ne 16(1) mu tteeka lya PPOAct kusaanidde era kukirizibwa mubantu abatudde awamu obulungi muddembe lya democracy. Nayongerako nagamba nti ebitundu bino byateekebwawo okutuukiriza obwetaavu obusibuka mukitundu 72(3) ekya Ssemmatteeka. Nagamba nti nga Ssemmatteeka mu kitundu 72(2) bwekiwa Olukiiko lweggwanga obuyinza okukyuusa munkola nokulunggamya mubibiina byobufuzi nebirala byonna tekiri eri kkooti mubuyinza bwayo okubuliriza buliriza mu tteeka eryamala edda okussibwawo. Nayongerako nti abawaabi bano tebanaba nakamu kuleeta bujjulirwa obukakasa nti kyebemulugunyamu kimenya Ssemmatteeka.

Munnammatteeka ono era naleeta nekyokulabirako mukuwoza nga ajjuliza omusango wakati wa Attorney General nemunnamajye Major General David Tinyefuza ogwawozesebwa Omulamuzi Kanyeihamba. Omulamuzi ono kulupapula 11 yalamula bwati.

“Tekisaanye kuggumizzibwa nga ekitamanyiddwa nti mu democracy kkooti tezisaanye kweyingiza munyombo ezisanidde okutawuluzibwa abakozi abalala aba Governmenti. Kkooti zissaanidde kuyingira munsonga zino bwekirabika nga abakozi abo bayisizzawo mubuyinza bwabwe nebalabika nga bakozeseza mubukyamu obuyinza bwabwe nebaleeta obulabe nokulumya.”

Munnammatteeka ono kwekusaba Omulamuzi kunsonga eno eyokubiri ajigaane.

Ekitundu43(1) kigamba bwekiti:

“Okukkotoggera obuyinza bwomuntu obwekkomeredde ne ddembe lye elyobuntu.

(1) Mukusanyukira mubuyinza buno ne ddembe ebiri mu kitundu kino tewali muntu yenna ate ateekwa okunyigiriza omuntu omulala yenna mumbeera ze naye zabeeramu wakati nga attudde mubantu bonna.

Ekiwandiiko “okuyitiriza mukulalika mubutenkanya obwandisangibwa mu Bantu abatudde entende mu democracy” tekinyonyolwa nakamu mu Ssemmatteeka.

Omulimu gwokunyonyola (Okutaputa) guli eri kkooti eno. Kkooti eno yakikola mu musango wakati wa Zachary Olum nomulala ate ne Attorney General mumusango gwa Ssemmatteeka no. 6 ogwatuula nga 1999.

Muganda wange Omulamuzi Okello yagamba bwati:

Enjogera: “abantu beddembe abatudde entende mu democracy” kyalowoozebwako mu kkooti eziwerako. Nga mu nsi ye Canada , Kkooti enkulu eri mukitundu kya The Queen Oakes [1987] (Const) 477 awo 498 – 9 egamba bweti.

“Enyinyonyola oba enzivunula eyokubiri (ey’ekitundu no.1) ekozesa enjogera “abantu beddembe abatudde entende mu democracy”. Okukozesa ebigambo bino nga ebyenkomeredde mukukomya kubuyinza ne ddembe lyo buntu kitwala kkooti okujjulira kunsonga zenyini ezagobererwa mu Ssemmatteeka wa Canada mu Bantu abatudde entende mu democracy. Kkooti erina okugoberera ebyomugaso era nga bikiririzibwaamu mu mu Bantu beddembe abatudde entende mu democracy. Ensonga zino ezikiririzibwamu zikwatagana kukusamu ekitiibwa obuyinza bwabantu, obwenkanya nokusala amazima, okuwa ekitiibwa munzikiriza ezenjawulo, okuwa ekitiibwa empisa zobuzaaliranwa ne nnono, nokukiriza okuwa ekitiibwa nobwesige mubukulembeze obukulakulanya omuntu oba abantu bonna. Abantu abeddembe abatudde entende mu democracy bye bibala ebirungi ebireeta obuyinza ne ddembe lyobuntu ebyenkomeredde. Wano wewali ekipimo ekyenkomerero ekikakasa okukoma kwobuyinza ne ddembe lyo buntu newankubadde nga oluvanyuma kyandirabise mungeri endala nemu democracy omulala.”

Okuzziyiza oba okugaana okuli mukitundu 5(1)(a) ate ne 16(1) mu tteeka lya PPOAct, mukulowooza kwange, kulimu omugaso munnene nenzikiriza entuufu essannidde okubeera mubantu abeddembe abatudde entende mu democracy nga ne Ssemmatteeka wa Uganda bwa kakasa. Ebirungi ebikiririzibwaamu nga bwekyogerwa waggulu kwekwewayo mukuwa ekitiibwa obwenkanya nokusala amazima, ate era nokukiriza okussamu ekitiibwa enzikiriza zabantu abalala, obuzaaliranwa bwabwe, ate era ne nnono zabwe.

Omuko ogwa 16 ogwa Ssemmatteeka gutekawo ekitebe nobuyinza bwabafuzi be nsikirano nga ate era bannono. Era nokusinga, Ekitundu 246 (1) ate ne 3(e) bigamba bwebiti:

1. Okusinziira ku nsonga eziri mu Ssemmatteeka ono, ekitebe kya bakkulu ba battaka bano nga Bankansanggwawo nga era bebakkulu be nnono, basanidde okubeerawo mu bitundu byonna eby’ ebyensi ya Uganda okusinziira kumpisa zobuzaaliranwa ne nnono era awamu nokusiima kwabantu abo bekikwatako.

3 (e) Omuntu yenna nga ye mukkulu we bika ne nnono nobuzaaliranwa bweggwanga, takirizibwa kwetaba mu bufuzi bwebibiina.
