FEATURED, NEWS, Politics
By Timothy Kalyegira I've not in a long time seen Baganda, elite and ordinary, feel so motivated, so filled with conviction and an uplifting of their spirit, as during this political phenomenon called People Power. It's something refreshing to witness. The region had in recent years started losing all sense of hope and self-belief. Baganda felt their area was fading into humiliating inconsequence.
