  • Description

    Uganda's Ambassador to the United Nations charged on Tuesday that those who criticised alleged human rights violations in his country were trying to cover up their own 'diabolical plans' against Uganda. In his address to the General Assembly, Ambassador Khalid Kinene said the real reason behind this 'wild campaign' was not so much the concern for human rights.

    It is the resentment those hypocrites have against Uganda and in particular against the Conqueror of the British Empire, Life President Idi Amin Dada who put an end to their criminal exploitation of Uganda's economy when he declared economic war in 1972. They were so furious that even they even cut off their so-called technical assistance with immediate effect. That meant technicians, such as engineers, teachers and lecturers had to leave Uganda immediately. But not only that. Even doctors and nurses were ordered to leave Uganda immediately. Their calculation at that time was that Uganda's economy would collapse within three months, after which they would come back and continue with their exploitation. But of course, that was nothing but day-dreaming. It is now over five years since Ugandans took full control of their economy and today we have even more industries than we had before, before the declaration of the economic war.
