Uganda’s president, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni said he’s pleased to be back in Zimbabwe, having been there first in 1980 at their independence ceremony where they marked another victory in the struggle against colonialism on the continent of Africa. The next time was in 1989 when Uganda was also just freshly resurrected from a nightmare.
Indeed, the struggle for Zimbabwe, like for South Africa, and Kenya, had peculiar challenges as these had been marked as colonies. This meant that the colonialists had decided to take over the land. A one Ian Smith put it like this; “We shall be here for the next 1000 years”.
Fortunately, because of co-coordinated strategy to resist, the pronouncement was to be thwarted.
On that note I salute all the revolutionary leaders, freedom fighters and the people of Zimbabwe who brought Zimbabwe to independence,’said Museveni.
It is therefore my hope, and aspiration, that Africa once again rises to the call of unity. I do not support the concept of imposing sanctions on any country because of perceived weaknesses of one leader,’he said.
In fact, it is a cowardly act that also counter-intuitively gives one an excuse for failing. If one’s methods are wrong, they will fail and be resisted by their own people, without foreign interference.
He said that Africa is stronger than it was in the 1960s, so we should rally each other for co-operation against this imbalance. Africa still exports money and jobs through selling raw materials in agriculture, minerals etc. This should not be the case.
Finally, it is my pleasure to invite H.E Emerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa to Uganda for a state visit and more discussions for our countries. The last time he was in Uganda was in 1963 as he transited through Entebbe to Egypt, where he trained under the ZANU PF to liberate his country and that is an imbalance we must correct first,’he added.
