This week was a sad one for Uganda in general. While we poked fun at Hon. Abiriga and his street ab-irrigation at ministry of finance, the fist fight that went on inside the house of parliament and the man handling of grown and respectable men making them squirm like little piglets in full view of their children was not good for our nation.
I have listened and read many pieces by both intellectual commentators and the cynics that get a high from dropping everyone else’s’ energy levels and brewing storms in teacups. I have listened to them all. I have listed to radio talk-shows where the death of women in Entebbe is talked about with simplicity and rhetorical statements that make it sound like simple political strategy. The lives of some being treated as mere pawns on a chess board. – People it HURTS!
It rubs me the wrong way when I see grown men and women tell blatant lies on national television and radio. Listening to grown people spending hours of productive time demonising INDIVIDUALS and in the process leaving the ISSUES to go free. They leave all puffed up and feeling witty because they vulgarised a debate that could have left them better.
I have nothing to say but to call for all of us to STOP and truly meditate on what we need to do to build a better nation for our children. As I prepared to go to our monthly Praise Prophesy and Prayer Night event today, I thought about two “P’s” that I will be evoking – Power and Peace!
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6
My prayer is that we put our faith in action and evoke the POWER of the PULPIT in the POLITICS of our nation. May the Grace of God reign over every arm of Government in Uganda.
Friends, let us PRAY for Our nation and those in authority.
