The work being done is rehabilitation, resettlement and rebuilding of Northern Uganda. Fourthly, Uganda is now being cited globally as one of the main places to visit indicating it is on a steady developmental growth,” notes the concerned music diva.

“So for the Invisible Children to irresponsibly release such a detrimental video about our country has grossly hurt us in the tourism sector and investment,” charges Katatumba, the proprietor of the magnificent Hotel Diplomate in Muyenga, Kampala.

Viewed by over 100 people across the world, the motive behind the video has been largely questioned by the Uganda government, academia and bloggers especially in Africa.

Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi last weekend responded by posting a video on Youtube as well as Tweeting his concerns regarding the irresponsible film.

Nevertheless, the gorgeous musician says the thirty-minute documentary did an amazing job by alerting the world on the atrocities Kony committed in Northern Uganda.

“I applaud the video on exposing Kony for who he is and do agree that he must go wherever he is. I just wish such an alarming video had come out six years ago when we were actually begging for help from every corner of the world to expose and end Kony’s terror in the North,” says Katatumba.

“I also question the western media’s motives of aggressively targeting Uganda when there are other countries with bigger problems than Kony whose impact has faded! Is it the discovery of oil and other natural resources they are after in the disguise of coming as saviors to “help” with Kony?” she wondered.
