OP-ED

Everyone MUST engage in production for Uganda to develop without World Bank

By Akampa Tanbull

Well, as I write this, the talk of the Nation on streets, bars, arcades, Parliament, State House, and media channels including digital/social media is the World Bank’s decision to suspend or halt future loan requests from Uganda.

The biggest reason as to why World Bank reached this decision is that the Parliament of Uganda passed the Anti Homosexuality Bill which was signed into Law by the President of Uganda, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni Tibuhaburwa.

Now, one wonders why the money World bank gives out as loans must be given out based on sexual orientation? This really defeats logic of thinking!

If a sovereign state like Uganda decides to legislate on behalf of her people. Why should her be denied a right to borrow to meet her collective development priorities? This clearly shows how such agencies like World Bank are just extension arms of neo-colonialism and thefore it is an eye opener to other African Countries to go slow on such agencies.

Yes, some of the gay rights activists are happy by the decision of the World Bank but the good news is that majority of Ugandans seem to be more determined to face whatever comes.

The President of Uganda, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni Tibuhaburwa wrote back through his Twitter handle and assured Ugandans especially the Bazzukulu to be steady fast and know that Uganda will develop with out loans from World Bank.

Mr Museveni categorically states it clear that Uganda will not trade her values and diginity for loans from those lenders who seem not to respect Uganda’s sovereignty.

Now for me and those several other patriotic Ugandans, this is a great opportunity for Uganda and Africa to break away from the debt trap and encourage or even force every Citizen to work, every adult Ugandan should be doing something productive so as to make sure that we generate incomes to sustain families, produce fairly enough food for all citizens and add value or even export to other Countries so as to generate incomes to build roads, hospitals, Schools and much more.
By doing all this, we will be a step ahead in building a resilient, self sustaining Economy.

Government must review it’s expenditures, give priority to areas of production to generate more incomes.

We must collectively tripple our efforts as a Country in fighting #Corruption, this is the worst enemy of our time. All citizens especially the Bazzukulu have a role to play in this fight, focus should be on tracking where Government puts public resources and monitor wether these resources are being put to proper use, and whether Citizens are getting value for money on all Government funded projects and programmes.

Let every Ugandan engage into producing something at whatever level he/she is. Get started from where ever each person is.
Together we will build a better resilient and self sustaining Economy, time is ripe and it’s now.

For God & My Country Uganda.
