Kampala, Uganda: Umoja Standard News Agency brings you events that unfolded as Uganda’s President H.E Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni was charged by the Court.
Taking to his Twitter Account this afternoon, Uganda’s president narrates;
PRESIDENT MUSEVENI ON TWITTER:
“The only time, I entered a Court of Law, was in 1956, when, being attracted by a game of football, I joined the other boys to enjoy the sport (because I was a good footballer), only to discover that the cattle I was herding had descended on a Mwananchi’s luscious millet garden”.
“………….Running at full speed, I tried to save whatever was remaining of the millet. It was, however, too late. I had committed the offence of okwonesa. From a layman’s understanding, it means one’s livestock eating the crop of another citizen”.
“This temporary attraction to village football qualified me to appear before the Parish Court at Kikoni, under a mutooma tree – omutuba – ficus nantelensis – in Mzee Katojo’s rutookye (banana plantation)”.
“I was, then, coached, I do not remember by who, to say: “omushaango ningwikyiriiza” – I plead guilty to the charge – and that by so doing, it will be better for everybody. I think Mzee Kaguta had to pay the millet owner some enkaitsi (compensation)”.
“……….Hence, Bazukulu: there is time for everything”, a time to work and a time to play. This year, let us put in equal effort in the work at hand before expecting an equal reward. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. Happy New Year!”
