Observer and political commentary
What does Norbert Mao adage “It time now?” means to the region.
Many school of thought have attributed Norbert Mao’s that it an Acholi region have joined NRM party, given scenario that the National Resistance Movement NRM has embraced him, as Odoch Oalak who double as President Museveni Envoy to Acholi Sub Region, the former NRM political mobilize in the last presidential and parliamentary polls 2021.
So, if true. Acholi Sub Region like West Nile, Teso, Busoga, Kigezi, Tororo and Bunyoro Sub Regions are moving in convoys with the NRM ruling party, this NRM school of thought argument.
Norbert Mao calls for political unity means, the oligarchy regime must open up for the inclusiveness for all Uganda particularly Acholi Sub Region should be incisiveness, while other believed that now its times for Acholi to eat big since Norbert Mao have thrown in the towel, in around Gulu City drinking joint. Most people now say with Norbert Mao, cabinet minister of Constitutional Affairs, it is very easy to see president Museveni since he can talk with him at any time.
In the circle of Northern Uganda Media Club, Norbert Mao political reunion with Sabogabu regime is cannon fodder, others believe that he is Omega and Alpha with Museveni, now Mao will be among the people who can decide cabinet restful.
In the eve of Presidential and Parliamentary 2021 polls, the opinion poll in Acholi Sub Region was that this time President Museveni is ready to hand power to our son, since now Gen. Paul Lokech, has been appointed Deputy Inspector General of Police, Jacob Oulanyah is now speaker of the August House, Alphonse Owiny Dollo Cigamoi is now Chief Justice.
What next! Hardly less than six months Gen. Lokech gone, a year later Jacob Oulanyah was no more., with Norbert Mao now, our son has gotten, we are now in the government. And yet Banyankole even they are not in government, but for them they have consolation to go quite leaver power to Balaalo.
Northern Uganda’s problem is economically, since Norbert Mao joined the NRM regime a year ago. Has Museveni recruited the sons and daughters of the soil into Foreign Diplomacy, apart from the usual adage of land grabbing and Karamja cattle rustling.
Why has Lyandor Komakech, his closest political ally, shifted his close link to Ojara Martine Mapenduzi.
Norbert Mao challenges status quo of political movement
The political pundit described the latest Memorandum of Understanding between the Democratic Party led by Mao and National Resistance Movement led by president Museveni observed that Mao apply the rights of control which the president Museveni has been increasingly using to management both foes within his party, the Uganda People Defense Forces UPDF his brain child armpit army and the members of Uganda opposition parties.
Mao observed the President Museveni for the last 37 years has been deriving the country through foreign power experts rather than relying domesticated, being one of the Mavic opposition leader he sidelines and decamping his peers those who were his guild cabinets when he was Makerere University Guild President by using rationalization to cattails to jumped start his attempt to modernize Pyem Wang oo literary from chest thumbing Acholi political bandwagon of the usual critic of the ruling NRM.
When galvanizing mammoth crowds to hoodwink the Kampala regime claimed that he does not have grassroots support, his moves beat Museveni state monopoly bureaucracy, his body language indicates that his loyal dog the calculation of efficiency. Political pundit observed.
What is ballgame between Mao and Museveni
Why now, president Museveni opted to embrace his political longtime foes, the Northern whom he described when he captured power in 1986 then that those are animals, backward primitive community, has Uganda forgotten history very fast?
The Mao and Museveni ballgame is based on the latter structure that gave rise to a person who has been pushed to the wall, panel beaten and changed to follow the rules of the game. This modern Bureaucrat-Mao who was an expert in Acholi block politics and he is still relevant in the game. Shielded by his community influence that needs economic bargain for the rule of law of fairness and objectivity.
On the other hand, yet another ballgame between the two could be beyond Musevnisim, crush my back I also crush your back, time and again Norbert Mao has been campaigning that president Museveni needs soft landing, who among the devil can grantee the post Museveni’s era. Is only not Norbert Mao. But, even the Biblically stated that my Jew black people who followed River Nile will never be defeated. “The Acholi people”, whether Ugandans like it or not remove Acholi and Lango from Uganda politics you will never manage.
However, divide them, you will rule for life, throw billions of money to them, you.
Therefore, The Mao’s Museveni’s ballgame this shift away from the tradition and inheritance permanently changed Uganda political chest thumping and being double agents, in the day you are leaders of opposition parties, in the night you are adviser of President Museveni eating together in Rwakitura, pumper with billions of taxes payers. Norbert Mao cut the short route to the statehouse by causing Uganda to follow the usual adage of invariably and automatically the objective set down by political authorities, we would be witnessing the first son taking over the mentor of the political helm.
organizations to follow, invariably and automatically, the objectives set down by political authorities.
But who is Norbert Mao?
Dealing Museveni iron law of oligarchy, the top leaders of NRM who control the rule of law through his family setting interest in maintaining their power-controlled-tend to develop a strong personal interest in maintaining their power and privileges, Mao marriage with the NRM party is a claim in an attempt to explain why Museveni the cause of NRM, we all most reaching there.
Norbert Mao is the first son of Dusman Okee, although his mother back was little known
