Most times we have no solid reasons why we are voting for who we are voting for. The worst of all is to hear that someone has voted for a particular candidate because of band wagon.
There is no harm in scrutinizing every candidates’ manifesto. That is your right. It is so sad that most Ugandans don’t even know the plans of their candidates for the country, that is called blind following.
Why would you vote any one in power and yet you don’t know their plans for the country.
This is one of the reasons why it is so easy for politicians to bribe citizens. Someone votes in a person who gave them a thousand shilling note.
Apart from poverty, it also shows ignorance because a person who bribes his or her way through power will do everything to retrieve their money. This even means misusing funds meant to help you develop.
Sit back and think about every reason why you should vote someone into power. Leave alone the song will all know now, “we need change”. We probably do but who is bringing this change? Is he/ she the one we have been waiting for as a country?
Let us not be emotional, let’s choose capable leaders. Let’s think with our heads so that we make the best choices for all of us to benefit in the time to come.
