Francis Okodel a political analyst at Gulu University says people have begun to understand politics as politics but not politics as a way of making money.
“I expect that in the forthcoming polls of 2021, people will be aware of what to do where and when. If you want to prove that money cannot work, the people like Gen. Charles Otema Awany and other NRM officials have been using money to bribe people, but have they succeeded?” Okodel warns
Okodel observes that in the near future, the old politicians who play by the old rules will go down.
He also faults the NRM government for brainwashing the masses and making them to perceive politics as a dirty game.
The Gulu University Don also says the economic incentive that is being promoted by the NRM government will never be a substitute to real politics.
“By promoting science and technology in the education sector in the country at the expense of arts subjects, shows a clear sign that the government is diluting politics by curbing down critical thinkers.” Say Okodel
He advice that the government should not only give university loans to students perusing Engineering, medicine and Economic among other science disciplines, but also supports students pursuing other arts disciplines like social sciences, political science, literature, among others.
Oyeng Yeng News say Under the Kampala regime, politician sciences course has been ban from all the Universities and also the discipline in put on hold in Uganda curriculum vitiate.
In 1770s Napoleon Bonaparte who were at despotic leader in the equal vine like his counterpart Uganda despotic leader Museveni band all (politics) critical thinking.
