LIZ TRUSS, BORIS JOHNSON, AND THE BRITISH REVOLVING DOOR POLITICS

British politics is such that daggers are continuously held to the back of a leader, and so it isn’t wholly surprising that the brand new Prime Minister Liz Truss has fallen spectacularly within 44 days. Six prime ministers in six years. Three-Boris Johnson, Truss and the incoming in two months. So, Labour Leader is right to describe the current acrimony as the “revolving door of chaos,” instigated by raw ambition, scandal, ineptitude and backstabbing by close allies.

OIL DEBATE; CENTURIES OF RACIST [ENTRENCHED] EUROPEAN HYPOCRISY AGAINST AFRICANS

By last Thursday, 22, Aug 2022, the reported EU parliament resolution on EACOP hadn’t been formally transmitted to Uganda or Tanzanian governments either by Brussels or diplomatic missions here.

According to some commentators on social media, they say the incident happened in Kyotera District and the victim is a S.

TITBITS TO CAPRICIOUS CRITICS TRYING TO DISCREDIT UGANDA’S ELECTIONS

In the past two weeks some fickle Ugandans have outdone themselves trying to discredit Uganda’s elections almost in its entirety comparing to Kenya where they have given a full clean bill of health, which shouldn’t pass unquestioned. Both Uganda and Kenya use similar laws and procedures for transparency and accountability in voter registration, polling, vote counting, tallying and declaration.
