esponse to Museveni quoted in paragraph four: Yoweri Museveni is desperately moving all over Uganda with Raila Odinga portrait talking bad. I have never seen such. He is crying at every market gathering saying how RAO, the “King of Poverty” as he has been described by the corrupt has become such a thorn in their butts and wants to ruin their sugar-milk deal with Uhuru signed recently. Yes, Raila Odinga is the King of Poverty. He has endlessly spoken for and stood by the poor who are poor not because they are not hard workers but are poor because the selected few grab their meagre earnings after their hard work! They are poor because of marginalization and seclusion from national dinner table by the governments of the day because of their tribal or political stands. Now, did Museveni and Uhuru expect the “King of Poverty” to watch them continue to syphon the poor man’s wealth and economically sabotage selected communities as they have done for years without saying a word? Did they expect Raila Odinga to stand aside and watch his poor flock in the sugar-belt areas and their industries being economically killed for the benefit of Uhuru’s milk pipeline to Uganda? The King is obligated to protect his flock. Raila Odinga will speak and protect the poor. He is obligated to move around the country to tell the poor the truth which Uhuru is trying to hide from them about the sugar-milk deal. “WE RESPECT UGANDA AS A GOOD NEIGHBOR. WE RESPECT OUR UGANDAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS. BUT WE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO EXPORT YOUR DICTATORSHIP TO KENYA. RAILA ODINGA IS NOT YOUR EQUAL. RAILA ODINGA IS THE FATHER OF DEMOCRACY IN KENYA UNLIKE YOU WHOSE WORD IS LAW IN UGANDA!”
