In this book ” Uganda Without Museveni” Nkwene makes analysis of Museveni’s quest for power, manipulations and schemes that have prolonged his rule and Insurgencies against his regime.
“My core focus is on sharing opportunities for citizens’ participation, in particular youth, at local and national levels outside established political institutions, in championing economic and socio-political transformation,” he says.
“Also, I share my thoughts on (1) Strategies to overcome political oppression, (2) Reducing the power of the oppressor, (3) new models to dismantle systems of subordination and injustice (4) concept of the right of revolution/mandate of heaven. In relation to oppression, I tell a story of Wakaima and pigs!”
The fact is that about a two-thirds of the Uganda population which is comprised of youth is face with blocked transition to adulthood due to multiple social, economic and political exclusion, Nkwene explains.
“In this regard, I make analysis of youth and politics in a contemporary society; and share youth-led collective action models that in other parts of the world have proved decisive in combating societal challenges.”
A review is made of Jinja Town―Busoga’s lost opportunity and the infamous 2009 Buganda uprising.
“Also, I make a Presentation on the cost of being a political change activist in Uganda. I further discuss how dangerous man becomes when desperate; under the topic; Ugandans are desperate for change.”
Lastly, he makes emphasis timeline of events in Uganda since 1979, when Museveni’s FRONASA and other rebel groups ousted president Idi Amin.
