President Museveni is Lacking Vision for Uganda – Miria Matembe

Early this year, the Great Lakes Eye shared with you an opinion by an exiled Ugandan politician, who is of the view that Museveni is a disgrace to Africa; yesterday a female politician revealed that Museveni is lacking vision for Uganda.

Australia-based Ugandan physician-cum-politician Dr Aggrey Kiyingi has been closely monitoring the goings-on in this part of the world, most especially in his country Uganda.

The outspoken consultant cardiologist, who has previously attempted to run against long-serving President Kaguta Museveni, had an interview with The New Times in which he enumerates the ills that have characterised his political opponents 33-year rule.


On Tuesday, 26 November 2019, the former Ethics and Integrity Minister Miria Koburunga Matembe has come out to accuse President Yoweri Museveni of lacking a vision for the country. Speaking at the Inter Party Organisation for Dialogue (IPOD) Women’s conference in Nsambya; Matembe, a former NRM stalwart said citizens must be in sync with their leader’s visions under normal circumstances. But in Uganda’s case, she observed, citizens aren’t aware of their leader’s long held vision, which she termed unfortunate. “We are going to 35 years, and nobody has caught your vision. Is that really a vision? Have you known what it is?” she said.

Citing President Museveni’s address on NRM’s 31st anniversary celebrations in Masindi town, Matembe said it was clear that the president is not a servant leader. “He said if you think I am your servant, you mistaken. I am not your servant; I am a freedom fighter. I fight for my ideals and beliefs,” she noted. Adding to this, Matembe called upon party women representatives to be consistent and persistent as far as espousing their visions is concerned. She pointed to NRM’s Ten Point Programme, saying it failed to succeed largely due to lack of persistence and perseverance on the part of the president.
