  1. Those Of You Who Have Been Bedeviling Uganda Lately Due To A Story Concocted By Some Foreign Group Based Close To The South Pole, What Do Say Now? Uganda Is The Luckiest Country In East Africa. As A Shotgun House As It Is, It Is Deemed Very Lucky That None Of Its Immediate Neighbors Are Willing To Give Any Moral Or Material Support To Any Of The Opponents The Museveni Government. Its Current Leaders Are Not That Dumb To Realize That. They Also Know That Ethiopia Is Just A Stone Throw Away From Their Country And Their Relationship With South Sudan Has Not Been Consistently To Sing About. They Know History. Museveni Is Part Of Generation That Can Vividly Remember How The Late Emperor’s Moral And Material Support To The Anya Nya Movement Had The Then Sudanese Leader Jaafar Nimeiry Come Running To Addis/Finfine In 1972 To Put His John Hancock Signature On The Dotted Line.
