Uganda without Museveni: Nkwene calls for an end to widespread discontent at Museveni’s dictatorship.


Uganda Without Museveni: Museveni’s Quest for power, who pays the price? Is a Newtalk serie  making Nelson Nkwene one of the soon to be most – sought – after-political author in Uganda.

The 186pages worth 10 Chapters Book is a “political handbook” with an in depth analysis of the Museveni regime and how he has consolidated himself into power at the dissatisfaction of many oppressed Ugandans since 1986.

Nkwene, alias Chairman Nkwene urges Ugandans particularly the  Youth to actively participate in the struggle against Mr. Museveni dictatorship.

He says that Ugandans are too thirsty to have a fundamental political change dismissing claims that they are depressed by the discontents caused by the ruling regime.

“I disagree with those who think Ugandans are cowards and have resigned into depression,” he writes.

He shades a picture of how different ethnic diversities, lack of access to information due to limited internet, controlled media, religious/tribal indifferences, have kept Ugandans a part thus delaying political changes.

He is optimistic that the book will be used as a tool to close inter-religion, inter-tribal and the information gap that have kept Ugandans indifferent to struggle for their political rights.

On Dedication, The book is dedicated to the two-thirds of the Uganda’s population who are faced with blocked transition to adulthood due to economical and political exclusion created by the NRA/M government.

He suggests for a collective-citizen led movement to regain political rights through which accountability, equal opportunities can be obtained for all citizens and oppressions overcome.

But who pays the Price?

In the Book, Chairman Nkwene analyses that manipulations, oppressions and other schemes  characterize Museveni’s consolidations in power adding that a peaceful and timely transition of power is needed lest Ugandans would pay the price for his quest for power by all means possible.

“If Mr Museveni chooses no peaceful power transfer or unnecessarily prolongs it, Ugandans are righted to up rise and demand for political change,” Nkwene writes.

A number of scholars have authored books, on Anti-Museveni rule and  the “Uganda without Museveni”  is nothing but a contribution to the available scholarly literature.

With a blank space per at the end of each chapter the book allows a reader to take own notes of political events resulting from Museveni’s presence in Uganda’s politics, recommendations etcetera. This engage readers in critical thinking, analytical discussions with the author thus making the message effective.

Although many people have authored books on Anti-Museveni rule, President Museveni has shown he is not tolerant to his challengers. 

They include; Dr Olive Kobusingye “The Correct Line?: Uganda under Museveni” Kakwenza Rukirabashaija “The Greedy Barbarian”  Rev Fr Denis Mayanja, “People Power” Journalist Jackee Budesta Batanda, “A sharp piece in the Buston globe,” Vincent Nzaramba “People Power – Battle the Mighty General” Doreen Nyanjura and Ibrahim Bagaya “Is it a fundamental change? Unveiling the hidden truth,” among others.

These have become subjects of arrest or have their materials censured.

With this background which shows how vulnerable criticising Museveni’s rule is, no one can neither tell if Nkwene’s ‘Uganda without Museveni’ will have space on the Ugandan Book industry nor  predict about his likelihood to be “arrested” for his publications.
