Consider rotational presidency for peaceful transition

The East African of May 31 reported that some politicians in South Sudan have revived debate on federal system of government with rotational presidency as a way of ending the on-going conflict.
This was supported by church leaders who said, “We have tried a centralised form of government and decentralised system but have failed. We now suggest considering a federal system of governance to address the ethnic and regional imbalance in the national constitution”.
These words fit well with Uganda’s situation. Uganda is a nation which has been at war with itself since independence and has never changed power peacefully.
