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.
