Uganda in Flames

I haven’t written for a while because I have been in transit for the last few weeks moving back to the States. As I have tuned back into what has been happening in Uganda, I am in total shock. Museveni seems to have completely lost it, and is well on his way to being the oppressive dictator that he said he would never become. The military and police are shooting live bullets at peaceful protestors, beating and using pepper spray on Besigye, his main opposition, and refusing to allow anybody to speak out against his increasingly corrupt and violent regime.

I have a feeling I’ll be writing much more in the near future. In the meantime, here are some links to more information about the situation in Kampala:
