“Africa to Obama: Mind your own business“, so says ” the mighty” Andrew Mwenda!!!
Since when did Andrew Mwenda become Africa? Or since when did Africa appoint this Mwenda its spokesperson? Someone was innocently asking whether Andrew Mwenda is mad when he wrote this hopeless article on Al Jazeera website.
Mwenda it’s only the unborn in Africa who does not know his source of ill gotten riches by being a parrot-parole of bloody dictators general Paul Kagame of Rwanda, and general Yoweri Museveni of Uganda. He has been sighted in farms in Rwanda sharing cows with Museveni and Kagame, and his presence in Rwandan cabinet meetings are a common sight to all who want to see. Mwenda has even the powers to participate in Rwandan cabinet meetings chaired by the bloodiest African Dictator Kagame in poor Rwanda!
Mwenda, in his third paragraph of the mentioned article, he referred to himself as an African elite? This is a total abuse of African elites Mwenda! No informed African elite would want to share breathing space with him, leave alone belonging to his class!
From what the world knows, Kagame, Mwenda’s pay master, is the most wanted criminal serving as a President in office today! The innocent human blood on Kagame’s hands is so fresh that it is only bigoted sharks like Mwenda who cannot see it.
Mwenda, when you start attacking the President of USA Barack Obama on a piece of advice he gave to African dictators against turning their countries into their personal businesses, don’t you think you are undressing your greed too much? Surely, Museveni has been in power for almost 30 years, Kagame has ruled Rwanda for almost 21 years, is this because they are the best rulers these two countries can offer? Do you ever sit down to think how much innocent human blood is dripping from the hands of these two mass murders? Because the duo are your friends and your cash providers, the rest of us citizens in these countries suffering under their regimes are irrelevant?
However, I beg you to tread carefully, because the Americans you are attacking today, are the same group that brought and are still funding your shameless dictators. We all know how much Ugandans paid and are still paying for bringing up these criminals in office today. The build up of the Uganda external debt under president Museveni, coincided chronologically with the Rwandan and Congolese civil wars. Museveni came to power in 1986 when Uganda’s external debt was at 1.3 billion dollars. with the gush of fresh money, the Uganda external debt increased almost threefold to 3.7 billion dollars by 1997, of which 2 billion dollars was new money from The World bank! We all know how USA’s Bill Clinton defended Uganda’s defence spending in this period. They allowed a big part of this money which had been tagged for civilian programs to be diverted into funding Museveni’s UPDF defence forces, which in turn would use the money in military operations in Rwanda and Congo (then Zaire).
So Mwenda, in case you didn’t know, it is America which authorised this Ugandan external debt to build while being used to finance these military operations to bring Kagame your boss and comrade in crime into power despite the human cost involved. What moral authority does Mwenda have to champion the African cause when he is dining with these bloody dictators who are setting pace to become life presidents, if I may ask?
Finally, in your article Mwenda, you are saying that it was USA that propped up incompetent and corrupt African tyrants like Mobutu, Samuel Doe, and Said Barre; please on this list, add on Paul Kagame, and Yoweri Museveni if you want us to believe a grain of what you are saying.
