Uganda: Tarehe Sita (February 6th) commemorated every year by NRM/A or NRM/UPDF since 1986 as the day on which, in 1981, the liberation of Uganda started. Because Uganda stopped being a debating society, the young people have never had the opportunity to debate the two prominent schools of thought about the date 6th February.
First and dorminant School of Thought is that one associated with power since 1986. It holds that Uganda was liberated and that the liberation started on 6th February I981. It remains more of an ever armed school of thought, belligerent and least attracted to reasoning.
The other school of thought is that one which holds that Uganda was not liberated but conquered and occupied by a group of men, originally refugees in Uganda, who simply rebelled against the host government that had granted them refugee status, used Uganda as a basis for rebelling and capturing the instruments of power in Uganda, and use it to capture power in Kigali Rwanda, while holding onto power in Uganda for resources.
Both schools of thought are very broadly influential and have numerous adherents and advocates for them.
Your Response: Be honest and tell me, which School of Thought you belong to. If you want to reason do so independent mindedly to teach and inform, not to denigrate the other School of Thought.
A School of Thought are more than just a thought. They are people with plans, goals, purposes that are different from those of others.
