Ugandans stop crying and stand up for change – Mulindwa Andrew

My fellow Ugandans, as a concerned citizen, I found it necessary to write to you in response of our beloved Uganda and the current status of our country in connection with Dictator Museveni and his government.

We have for so long cried and nothing has changed only to keep on crying but in reality our cries has never been considered by anyone, we thought that western countries could hear our loud voices but they have only kept on promising to end our pain and later seen chanting with our oppressors.
I may ask you a question if you could fairly answer me, if you’re in that great pain, whom do you think to carry away your pain if you yourself can’t stand and find a solution to your pain?
