Who is Museveni’s patronage in Acholi Sub Region, just a mock show or real political marriage? Or just “a cardiac arrest.”

Norbert Mao says there should be a contentious process of social integration where ex combatants engage with the community.

Who is Museveni’s patronage in Acholi Sub Region, just a mock show or real political marriage? Or just “a cardiac arrest.”

KAMPALA-UGANDA: President Museveni tyranny appointed Justice Owiny Dollo Cigamio Uganda Chief Justice on Thursday, August 20, 2020. Making Justice Owiny Dollo to be the first son from Acholi Sub Region Chief Justice.

The appointment of Chief Justice Owiny Dollo happened on the very day President Museveni was endorsed sole presidential candidate flag bearer for the National Resistance Movement ruling party to stand in 2021 presidential polls.

The Deputy Speaker, Jacob Oulanyah the Omoro MP also won the seat for National Vice Chairman for Northern Uganda, making him the Kitchen cabinet member of NRM, the Central Executive Committee.

The Museveni’s move to appease Acholi Sub Region must go hand in hand with the reconciliation and truth telling process in Uganda, there must be Mato Oput Acholi traditional justice system between Acholi community and Museveni’s kin. The Westerners especially Munyankole. Political pundits within the northern corridor argued.

President moves to capture Acholi sub region has realized the power of globalization taking root at the end of Northern Uganda long conflict pitted North against South as was the collapse of communism in the 1990s seducing his arch rival into believing that conflict had become pointless obsolete.

In that calamite of euphoria he has deployed economic rule to catch the big sort Chief Justice Owiny Dollo and Jacob Oulanyah who lately composed themselves to be a moderate’s son of Acholi

However, Samuel Baker Ochola a Political commentator urges that there is already a bigger problem in Acholi Sub Region that the entry of Museveni to embrace Acholi leadership in his government wholesale, the fear is based on Justice Bamugemereire land Commission recommendation report.

Ochola cited the Justice Catherine Bamugemereire Commission report on land which says that all land in the country should be put on a register after an adjudication process, Bamugemereire said.
The Commission also recommends the establishment of an institutional framework for administration of customary land within Uganda Land Services Bureau framework.

The Land dispute situation, according to Bamugemereire was found by the commission to be a pandemic, in which mostly the well-to do persons have obtained land through illegal means, bribing their way through all systems of land administration and registration.

In his remark, Ochola argues that land from northern Uganda will be taken as President Museveni make in road in Acholi Sub Region by embracing us.
Thus; according Norbert Mao President General of Democratic Party (DP) party argues that Uganda has a history of bloody conflict, most of the rebel’s army are full of abductees.
Therefore, in our action discussion we are trying to be balanced in three ways.

That is accountability, justice and reconciliation. We also have to consider the paradox of victim’s perpetrators.

Mao argues that rebel leader LIKE Kwoyelo was abducted as children, but eventually started committing atrocity as an adult.

In debating this important subject of amnesty in the context of peace and reconciliation there is no room of dogmatism, Mao urged.

He further added that no one should tell us that something should be believed, therefore, we must face squarely the reality of conflict and its consequences.

Mao reason that he wish to warns the former LRA abductees against those who say that there is a choices between blanket Amnesty or whole sale prosecution and other alternative accountability

The Commission of Inquiry into Land Matters has called for a tax on large tracts of privately-owned idle land across the country in order to encourage its productive use.

The tax is among several proposals, including a cap on how much public land individuals can own, to make land ownership more equitable, management more transparent and transactions less corrupt.
“In a developing country aspiring to achieve middle-income status, it is deemed necessary to devise strategies to induce owners of such idle unutilized land to put it to productive use,” the Commission said in a statement issued after it handed its final report to the President on Wednesday at State House Entebbe.
“There are direct benefits and spill overs realizable from unlocking idle land by putting it to productive use.”
The seven-member team led by Justice Catherine Bamugemereire said the proposed tax could vary based on the location of the land, the national soil map, weather patterns, crucial information and land use zoning.
“Taxation of land should be only for idle private land above the threshold of half a square mile (320 acres),” noted the Commission. There should be a covenant on title intimating that land will be taxed. The tax revenue should be applied to the Land Fund to facilitate redistribution of land.”

Individuals and organizations applying to take over public land would also be subjected to a cap of half a square mile, if the proposals are adopted. Requests for bigger chunks of land would be subjected to a two-stage approval process involving the Uganda Land Services Bureau (ULSB) board and then the Cabinet.
“The commission noted large chunks of land across the country that lie idle and unutilized. There is need to regulate the limit of land one can possess at a given time in order to bring about an equitable distribution of land, especially in rural areas to serve the common good,”.

The Major Powers and international institutions take it for granted, in the South, democracy is subornational to their own economic and strategic interest. And they try to shape democracy in such a way that it becomes more a form of face market management.

According to Oxford, TRIPS and GATS restricted democracy in the Main ways, their investment liberalization agenda put transnational in a dominant position promoting private interests and denying local people the information necessary to make decisions about economic policy.

Second, these agreements and pharmaceuticals impose the privatization of public services and utilities.
Third, patenting provisions privilege research generated knowledge agrochemicals and pharmaceutical making it expensive to obtain while leaving unprotected traditional and community based knowledge.

Oxford developed these ideas by arguing that the trumpeted linkage between trade and human rights which would allegedly, “Hominies” global capitalism, impose trade and human rights which follow a Christian model sacrifices in which the market has replaced God Human rights and democracy claims to break away from the sacrificial economy.
