I am glad Daniel Kalinaki wrote the book, Kizza Besigye and Uganda’s Unfinished Revolution. We need the history going as far back as possible. You cannot understand the political and social forces operating in Uganda today without understanding the history of Uganda.
Part of President Museveni’s problem is that he thinks Uganda’s history begins at independence i.e. 1962. Those who think revisiting history is a waste of time are probably in an even worse state than him. They even think the history from the 1980s is irrelevant. As for me, I am dying to get hold of the whole book so that I can at least get a glimpse of what drives the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party. Up to now, FDC has been very reserved with accounts about itself. I am hoping that this book will at least lift the lead off the guarded secrets as to what FDC stands for and where it comes from.
