There is so many activists world over who lie through their teeth, but as is often said, you can fool people but not all the time. So many innocent people often jump into the bandwagon because a particular individual speaks to their biases. It is called confirmation bias. Then when these people ditch you on the side of the road and find a new prince, you cry salty waters: sending out all slurs and memes, cursing, hosting hate rallies online and otherwise.
Look, Bobi Wine and AshBurg are cut from the same cloth, both are fair-weather politicians. A one, Bobi Wine, who only grew to fame, politically, because he associated with Dr. Besigye through the year, an assertion so many deny; well, welcome to the human race.
Ashburg (see Bobi Wine) is a mere political intermediary: He is a young man whose besetting vices are self-righteousness and reductionism; he underestimates the force of political passions. He wishes to enjoy the fruits of politics without paying the price or noticing the pain. He likes the fruit and not the tree; he wishes to pluck each fruit: liberty, honesty in government, good Medicare, economic prosperity, employment for the populace…. etc. Thus by definition outside politics or he may think that politics is simply the acts of political parties and politicians—thus narrowing the scope of politics drastically and unrealistically. But steeply though, he draws such lines, he always leaves some place for politics. He merely tries to scrub it down, clean it up and tether it firmly until the terrier becomes a fairly lifeless, if respectable, lap-dog. Honestly, he is the guy whose last act of betrayal reads: money is better business.
I have been in the political commentary space long enough to lay claim that I know for certain what I am talking about, there is none of the two, and their cult of false worship, who has your best interests at heart, they are all using you to have an overdrive of their ego and personal ambitions. Ashburg, who claims he has worn the “engule’ first before all else is a symptom of the many reasons why Museveni and his cohort will take Uganda for a ride, even much longer than you expect: Ugandans are gullible.
In 2016, Ashburg took his very gullible echo chamber for a ride saying that he had got a note from Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerburg, thanking him for the great blogging work he was doing in Uganda. Do you know debunked his lies? I did. I brought his foolery to a quick death; I proved it was a hoax. There was an online program where you would self-generate the notes. I did the same exact note and posted to his status update, it must been cringe-inducing that evening. Certainly, more times like these, a time for the reckoning is coming, we will know them at the end: the bible says, those who believe till the end will win the crown of life. Politics too, if you start a mission just to get you five minutes to the president; you are a fraud, a scam, a con artist. We see through you.
