  1. This government should be appreciative that Dr. Kobusingye has been as polite and mild as reflected in the book. She has been fairer than she ought to have been.
    That aside, the book is incisive and straight forward; it talks about what every grown up including those who have with held it know as simple truth, it is not scholarly stuff.
    The last few days when the book has been held “incomunicado” have given it the required publicity and take it from me, it is only a matter of time, we will have it in the required numbers. I love my country.

  2. What is the role of the numerous “advisers” to this government? This is is betrayal of the employer in its boldest manifestation. The book should have been allowed to circulate and in a few days’ time, it would be over and out. How many Ugandans can afford to buy copies anyway when they are struggling to make aneds meet? Suffice it to mention here that the reading culture in Uganda is very shallow. Now the impounding of the book has tickled all that can read to try and know what is it that our dear leader and his system is quaking at!
    While the book can be held for some time, the contents cannot. What a fundamental change in the country!

  3. Does it not stir up any discerning mind that a government which established its first foundation stones on the abhorence of the dictatorial tendencies and actions of the past regimes ala Obote I (1965-1970), Idi Amin (1971-1979), Paul Muwanga (1980), Obote II (1981-1985), Okellos (1985) and thus the determination to establish a democratic and constitutional governance in the country thereafter should, in utter amazement, turn out to be more dictatorial and generally more decadent than all the the bad regimes of “swines” it replaced? Was the statement “The problem of Africa is its ‘leaders’ who do not want to leave power peacebly” made in a deep slumber?? Anyhow, kudos for Dr. Kobusingye’s immaturate appraisal and/or record of Mr. Museveni’s staled welcome! And whilst the copies of her book are still in “incarceletion” in Uganda, the regime has inadvently contributed to making Dr. Kobusingye’s work more sought-after. Thank you so much, Dr. Kobusingye!!

  4. If the rest of the book lives up to the standard of the preface, then I am looking forward to my chapter -a- day!

  5. People who will bring down President Museveni will not be the opposition but those inside who pupport to love him more than others. Look at the embaressment of the Consititutional ruling! I think the same fate will follow this book. I dont think President Museveni stopped the book himself, but his agents did and will end up yet embarressing our President. Everything changes except the truth. You must be exceptional intelligent to keep consistency of a lie.

  7. at this moment in time while copies of this book are being held by whoever it is has been placed in the same leauge as “GOLD”. unknowingly they have given it free and cheap publicity and now selling like hot cakes.
    we are all indebted to Dr Kobusingye for her courage and convictions and what she has done to expose the leopard dressed in the sheep’s clothings.
    all Ugandans have been yearning to toe the ‘correct line’ instaed of corruption,brown envelops and nepotism etc etc that have come to symbolise this regime.
    power to the people and long live the truth. we shall live and die by the truth rather than by lies and or deceit.

  8. This Book is equivalent to the State of Blood, with the exception that the State of Blood was written in 1976 or thereabout yet it should have applied now, when we live in both a State of Blood, deceit, theft and poverty.

    Yoweri, your time is coming to an end, the cost is what our grand kids will pay.

    Ugandans will always regret having ever met one man called Yoweri, who has brought the country to its knees

  9. Museveni has been busy digging his own grave. And it is not in anybody’s powers to stop him, you may find yourself in a safe house. But simply to advise him, His excellency has been cutting the same branch he is sitting on, only that it has taken him 23 years to realize that. Dr Olive is trying to tell the dictator that is not correct to cut the same branch you are sitting on. The branch can now be identified in the correct line book as Uganda and the tree is mother Africa. The book has been held incommunicado to silence the wise woman. The problem is that Museveni is expecting the branch to fall off, but its actually the other way round. Uganda will find it way back to the main tree (Africa) as its branch whether museveni likes it or not. My advice to Dr Kobusingye is that she better hides before Museveni finds out that her advice was true, he will call him a witch for having predicted something before it actually happened.

  10. The Museveni I know is nolonger the President of Uganda. We now have a military General or Saint who is afraid of any thing including written information not put up by his own cadres. Imagine his own press advisor- Nagenda is in support of Dr.Olive’s book, but “his own people” like Kuteesa, Mbabazi, Kyambadde have not supported the idea. Since I believe and like History, this book is part of history and we will read it.

  11. We totally appreciate the Chapter a Day idea and so far, the ones published are extremely mouth watering. Can we then keep to the promise and keep those chapters rolling. Today is the 18th and there have only been tow since the 13th….

  12. this is a book that will even inspire those with a notably poor reading culture as the majority are in this country. i love doctor.

  13. I would be glad to share views with the person in question

  14. Dear Ugandans ,we seriously and strongly applaud Dr. Kobusingye , one of our own who has cut accross all obstacles to expose the tyrannical rule and indeed the rule of the minority against the majority in in our dear beloved country . This is not a wake up call but a honest call to reclaim our dignity as Ugandans in a free and democratic world, enough of blindfolding our people , enough of being hoodwinked by the elitist leadership of NRM and Museveni at the helm.We are in this together and we as agents of change.We shall govern with the required mandate of the people of Uganda that have faced huge poverty, unemployment and diseases like the jigger scandal in Busoga Region all these are the very legacy Yoweri is leaving behind for you and me as the true citizens of Uganda. 2011 is a year of history and which history will not be made by only leaders and generals but the entire masses of our motheraland. Vote out the dictator with all his agents in positions of influence in our land.

  15. It is indeed a great surprise that in this time and age, we still have people in the name of Uganda’s leaders who still think that they can block knowledge by merely impounding books at a customs section of an international airport! Hon KK is abit aged and was educated during the cold war era, where even with limited means of communication, our independence heroes managed to defeat colonialism. He should borrow a leaf from that and stop wasting time and resources on mere gymnastics and have this book released!

    Kudos for you Dr. Olive!

  16. Uganda being a Christian state i will respond by making quotes from the Bible.
    1. Scripture is being fulfilled;

    “So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. Matthew.10:26;

    “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and :nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.” Luke.8:17

    When i turn to scripture over this am not surprised. Time may just up for the truth prevail and Ugandans will need to use it to foster their destiny.

    2. Facts are Bitter. The way government has responded sends sparks. For sure i know the 10 point agenda that took M7 to the bush. This has not been fulfilled.

    Ugandan need this book. Am happy the act of gov’t to block it is turning non readers to reach it this time. WHAT A SUCCESS!!!

    Surely when hidden matter is to be revealed as referenced above nothing can block it!!!

  17. Thanks alot for providing this alternative to us! I was so eager to read it, and explore the truths in it. Now is the time to prove to Museveni and his regime that he can not control what we take in our minds. God bless the writer and all those who came up with this idea.

    Posted by yona okoth gongo | October 18, 2010, 3:06 pm
  18. Yes!!!!!!! Every Ugandan should toe the correct line. I mean not only M7 but you and I. That is when Uganda will be the country for all of us, where those waiting to form the next government will be held accountable before they sit on the hot seat. Release the book or it sells even the more.

    Posted by Katobe Wilfreds | October 18, 2010, 5:21 pm
  19. We do believe that our Man who has been fighting for democracy all his life time , will not allow this scandal continue for long . Of course president Museveni understands what will happen if the book stays under his boys custody, the author and the book are just gaining popularity without paying for it. Release the book and let people judge it by themselves only that it has come at a wrong time for the movement when elections are at the corner, accept and swallow it ! , release the book.

  20. This is a real eye opener to all Ugandans.. Hope every one reads and understand the content.
    Looking forward to all the other Uploads.

  21. The ban of this book has made me very anxious to get to know whats in stock for us the readers. Bring it on!!!

    Posted by Albert Ssimbwa | October 19, 2010, 12:07 pm
  22. The Baganda have a saying that: olumbe olunata wambwa lusoka muziba nyindo (a dog dies easily if its nose is blocked first)
    Said differently: whoever will defeat M7, exposes his lies. The Correct Line? catches M7 with his pants down. And its prominence is not so much of what it exposes, but how M7’s hegimonic control of ugandans is falling from within.
    His power-drunk boys confiscated an innocent book subsequently giving it prominance. Soon those same boys would do away with their boss.
    As for Dr. Kobusingye book, it simply reminds M7 and his kind that: you cant fool all the people all the time.
    Kudos Doc. Now i know where Besigye gets his lines to hit M7. Aluta Continua!

  23. An opportunity to analyse and make personal comparision

    Posted by Jackson | October 21, 2010, 6:01 pm
  24. I think apart from being an excellent campaign strategy for KB–basing on timing of the release of this book, and by luck that it has received free publicity, this lady has done this Country a great justice and pride by chronicling the trails of deception by a sitting President in Africa. I think she deserves to eter the annals of History for this courageous act. We pray she will not be incarcerated or forced into ‘Self Imposed Exile’.

  25. this book is real good. i feel i cannot stop reading it even when am so tired. how else can we make a change minus attacking this government from all corners. Its time is expired. Surely bigups to Dr. Kobusingye. I love patriotic people like that. Let us pray that God touches and exposes the future to us. Ugandans, take the final decision. ”Peace or pieces”

  26. it was indeed such a regrettable action by government to with hold the book,it showed how guilty this is for getting derailed from core objective that all ugandans were twenty years ago thought would indeend bring a fundamental change.yes,thr was change but was it fundamental?
