July 25, 2010 was the opening day for the
African Union summit at the Commonwealth Resort in Munyonyo. All Heads of States from different
corners of Africa took part in the meeting, and a number of representatives from other nations like
the USA, UK, Mexico, and many others were also available for the opening of the
The delegation from the USA included Mr. Johnnie Carson the Secretary
of State for African Affairs, and Eric Holder, the current US Attorney General. In his speech, Mr.
Holder touched a number of issues, including one that is well known to the current government in
Uganda CORRUPTION. The Attorney General reiterated President Obamas clear message that the USA
will not support corrupt government in Africa.
He further made it clear
that the USA will seize assets of corrupt African leaders, for as long as they are in the west. Mr.
Holder promised that he assembled a team of prosecutors to deal exclusively with the kleptocracy of
African leaders. More support was promised to African judiciaries to better equip them in the fight
Mr. Holders promise is warmly welcomed by all Ugandans,
because Musevenis government is the most corrupt in Ugandas history, and one of the most in Africa
and the world as a whole. Mr. Museveni is also using money that should be used to improve
infrastructure, in countries like Sweden, buying properties. Sweden is not the only country where
Museveni is spending Ugandans money for his own personal use.
Nigeria for example have been able to recover some money stolen by Gen. Sani Abacha. A majority of
Ugandans outside the Museveni regime warmly welcome the USAs new measures to make sure that
Africans, especially in countries like Uganda can finally see their money put to good use, like
fighting malaria, HIV, and other diseases, instead of being piled up in western countries for a
select few. Lets hope that finally money stolen from Ugandans by Museveni along with his fellow
corrupt leaders will come back to Ugandans.
