For many years, leaders in East Africa have tried to create a Federation that would see the countries in the region merge into one.
This was proposed as early as the 1960’s with the formation of the East African Community.
This was however suspended with the emergence of Uganda’s president Idi Amin who undermined other East African leaders.
However, with the emergence of Museveni, the idea has slowly been re-adopted and has surely made positive strides.
There has even been addition of several countries to the bloc such as DR Congo, South Sudan, Burundi and Rwanda.
This is from the original 3, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
However, not all politicians are in favor of this project especially opposition politicians.
NUP leader Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine who has become a vehement critic of anything Museveni-esque took to his Twitter page to oppose the idea.
He said that the Museveni family do not care about the good of this project, all they want is personal ambition.
Therefore progressive nations can never be part of such a project.
The East African Federation will therefore only happen after a set of values respected by everyone are agreed upon.
To make these comments, it was after Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba showed the scramble and partition of leadership roles once this Federation is effected.
According to Muhoozi, his father Museveni will be the president deputized by Kenya’s William Ruto. Uhuru will be the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kagame the Minister of Defense while Muhoozi wants to be the CDF of the East African forces.
