First was districts, then Ebola added incentives to the already deranged country and finally to crown the icing gun wielding men punitively shooting dead a suspected robber before making off in ntinda and a police statement comes hours later claiming the dead guy was just injured, I love my country Uganda. we never get any better in inter state comics, we are one unrivaled lot in that.
So I guess we are a perfect destination for a gun wielding model contest, every part of the country is a potential runway for interested models, M.P’s pull them out to pump attendants, makmots pull them out to residents, plain-clothed goons jump out of taxis holding them like a perfect ki-nigeria screen-cast in bukoto south, days later another points it to a police officer at KCCA and few hours to follow, we just might see people walk freely with them into a discotheque or bank.
So inadvertently. I will declare myself police PRO for a minute and let the guns ramble, kill each other and we see who’s left for me to get my own gun and shoot the fool down as well.
To start with, getting a gun in Uganda is not as hard and neither are the bullets as well. A gun goes for 2 million in someone’s office (the most high in crime prevention) and the bullets are more often than beans in markets north of the country or neighboring S.Sudan. But alternatively, if you need one for a day’s ‘modelling contest’, a walk to cop with a 200,000 heavy wallet might just give you all you need for the night (uniform inclusive).
So whose at bay in the country? every morning we wake up to news of gunned down people in the city, people robbed at gun-point and yet we still continue to smoothly massage the perpetrators and for some reason the incidences play like a slide screen yet lives continue to slip away. Think about the continuous lives we lose? someone has to stop this!
