In Summary

Here is my advice to Ms Rebecca Kadaga: Tread carefully, Madam Speaker...don’t fall prey to those political gimmicks of ‘people’s call’ or ‘ God has asked you to save His people’.

I have read many stories in the media where the Parliament Speaker’s name has come up as a possible presidential candidate in 2016.

Here is my advice to Ms Rebecca Kadaga: Tread carefully, Madam Speaker...don’t fall prey to those political gimmicks of ‘people’s call’ or ‘ God has asked you to save His people’.

Are you ready, for instance, to take on a system where individuals are above institutions; where citizens demand districts, envelopes, political posts for their children in exchange for political support?

This country is not yet politically, socially and democratically mature to embrace 1) A female president and 2) A civilian with no military attachment. It is unfortunate but therein lies reality. Good Luck though.
