Investigative Muleba issues forming local political debates Published 9 years ago on 08/09/2010 By Orton Kiishweko Share Tweet A few months ago, I did a story on Muleba’s changing political chess board. It was a month before the Chama Cha Mapinduzi primary polls. Todate, whatever was rumoured on the ground then, has certainly come to pass. In surveys I did among wananchi then,the same issues that were aired to likely form political debate are today haunting politicians as they return for the peoples’ votes.Or the same issues still have to be confronted by ‘first timers’ on the campaign trail. And as opposition’s Civic United Front sold their manifesto here last week,the same issues ,aired in mini surveys in early June still came up and these are issues which come with daily engagements of any ordinary family upcountry: good hospital, closer water source, school for one’s child, roads to business centre; an unfinished bridge among others. Pertinent too, villagers noted, are issues such as strengthening farmer’s market systems, water, roads, hospitals and giving a complete picture to village schools. The road from Nshambya to Kyakaboka also comes into the picture. When the Muleba speak, it is clear that ‘ndizi’ (bananas) and infrastructure play a significant part in their lives. If you want to talk about politics, then also talk about bananas. With ‘ndizi’ as the favourite agricultural product, also comes the need for irrigation. They are happy in their rural settings; they just want an improvement in their lives.

I would also, point out that the locals can organize and create somekind of farmers or trade association as a vehicle to do what is really important in the communities. Professioals, can volunteer consultation, as the start up point. Then ask the politien, support policies to improve standard of life. Frankly speaking, politian will not solve all social issues, based on historical facts. Thanks Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
