Inside Mbabazi Books on Fear, Opportunism

Mbabazi reading 'Love Leadership' during the Easter Season

At least two people were killed during the Easter season in Kabarole District, this web http://cherrylanefarms.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/3rd-party/bitly.php authorities said Monday.

The victims have been identified as Adolf Guma in his mid-40s of Kigaya village, sildenafil http://cmd-kenya.org/institute/wp-includes/session.php Kyamatanga in Buheesi Sub-county and Stephen Kyomuhendo alias Puff, store 28, of Kaguma, Rwensenene parish, Bunyangabu County, Kabarole district.

It is alleged that Stephen Kyomuhendo together with his friend David Edeni, 23, stormed the home of Guma demanding for Shs 10,000 – the balance of the payment for a pig the duo sold the latter early this year.

Guma told them he had used all the money he had for Easter shopping.

Kyomuhendo was angered by Guma’s response, sparking off a physical fight.

Edeni and Kyomuhendo clobbered Guma with clubs before carrying him to Buheesi sub-county police post.

On their way to the police post, the duo realised that Guma was bleeding profusely and had even lost consciousness.

It was decided that the victim should be abandoned near Kyamatanga Catholic Church. Edeni and Kyomuhendo disappeared to evade the long arm of the law.

According to eyewitness, Kyomuhendo committed the gruesome act at around 11:30am on Saturday.

Upon seeing the body of Guma lying on the roadside, an irate mob mounted a hunt for Kyomuhendo till they rounded him up at Rwensenene trading center before beating him to death.

Edeni is reportedly on the run.

Police handed over the bodies to the relatives for burial ceremonies which took place on Easter Sunday.

Rwenzori Police Spokesperson, Bashir Bakari Muga said they have launched investigations into the murders.

He condemned the “acts of mob justice” and advised people to “use police and local leaders in resolving disputes.”
Amama Mbabazi was last year removed from the position of Prime Minister amid fears that he was preparing ground to contest against President Museveni for the highest political seat in the land in 2016.

A few weeks later, this site http://chicken33.com/commande/wp-content/themes/sushi/ait-theme/%40theme.php Mbabazi was dislodged from his position as Secretary General by the NRM Conference at Mandela National Stadium.

These two events marked the beginning of Mbabazi’s political downfall, pills http://contemporarydancevideos.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/sharedaddy/sharing-sources.php with many pundits arguing the political base the once powerful NRM functionary needed to rise to the position of presidency had been detached from him.

With National Bank of Commerce (NBC), in which Mbabazi had a huge stake, shut down for flouting banking regulations and his political powers trimmed, Museveni’s strategists believe the former Security and Defence Minister has been controlled.

However, this could turn out to be the opposite.

Mbabazi reportedly spends the better part of his time networking, updating his close friends in the Diaspora about his future plans and reading widely.

During the Easter season, Mbabazi shared on his Facebook page photos showing how he was busy reading at his home library.

He commented: “Reading books gives one that much needed break. Not to mention the pleasure of learning something new.”

He added: “I commiserate with the parents of the Garissa students who were robbed of the right to learn.”

In his hand was a Book titled ‘Love Leadership.’

This book, which mainly advises on the “new way to lead in a fear-based world”, was a bestseller around August 2009.

The timing of the reading is crucial considering that most opposition leaders believe most Ugandan voters have failed to overcome fear about the future, a reason they keep voting to power President Museveni.

With Mbabazi refusing to rule himself out of the presidential race, the book is likely to provide him with intellectual ammunition of dealing with voters determined to keep around President Museveni.

According to Amazon.com, an online retailer of books, ‘love Leadership’ is about a dynamic young leader showing how leading with love and respect creates success in business and life.

Written by the founder of Operation HOPE and advisor to the past two U.S. presidents, the “groundbreaking book makes the case that the best way to get ahead is to figure out what you have to give to a world seemingly obsessed with the question: What do I get?”

The author’s bold approach to leadership is well-suited for today’s tough economic environment and a world gripped by fear and uncertainty.

With the commercialisation of Ugandan politics, the question of benefits for voters remains a key component in determining election results.

In most cases, candidates with huge sums of money bribe their way not power.

Aimed at a new generation of leaders and extremely relevant for today’s economic climate, ‘Love Leadership’ outlines Bryant’s five laws of love-based leadership-Loss Creates Leaders (there can be no strength without legitimate suffering), Fear Fails (only respect and love leads to success), Love Makes Money (love is at the core of true wealth), Vulnerability is Power (when you open up to people they open up to you), and Giving is Getting (the more you offer to others, the more they will give back to you).

Mbabazi said he would in future speak out about his political plans.
