“If you are angry and you are aggressive, you ask for permission and we deploy you to Somalia”, President Yoweri K Museveni tells his troops.

The President narrates a story of a retired general slapping a policewoman in Uganda.

“Slapping a Ugandan is a big issue. ,” the President said. “(In Uganda) You are not allowed to slap. We do not slap women. You are not even allowed to bark at people. Whoofff!! Whoofff!” he stated.

Somalia, he continued to say was ‘where signs of aggressiveness were needed

But to President Museveni, it was alright to slap non-Ugandan women, bark at people, and be aggressive elsewhere.

To President Museveni, obviously, the nearest, ‘no place’ place an angry Ugandan soldier can vent his anger at his heart’s content was Somalia.

In saying so, President Museveni reveals how little he knows about Somalis and the infinite love and respect they have for their mothers, sisters, daughters and wives. By making them appear as if they were there in their country as slapping boards for his soldiers, he, again, earned the wrath and the indignation of Somalis everywhere.

Earlier in the year, on 27 January to be exact, President Museveni called Somalia a country without s state or an organized authority that ran it.

“There are many countries that have no state,” he said. “They are there but they have no organized authority that runs them, Somalia is one of them”.

The federal government of Somalia, as in before, is playing hard of hearing. Somalis – again – fill the gap with some calling him to take his troops out of Somalia, immediately, if he thought their stay gave him the permission to repeatedly insult it with intent to hurt.

Below is a small sample.
