Tumuhimbise Norman is one of the few disgusted enough to take action, having stealthily smuggled pigs into Parliament to taunt one of the most repressive regimes on the African continent, his action in life speak more powerfully than any words he could put on a page. Yet this book nevertheless speaks encouragement and hope into the lives of Ugandans near and far. His approach to change, a change created from and for millions upon millions of Ugandans at the bottom, is the nation’s hope for a better future and indeed a better present.
Norman discusses the iconic political post of the NRM ruling party, a political group headed by General Museveni, the self proclaimed mustard seed who has promised to carry forward in peace, security, and economic betterment. Norman’s suggestion is that Museveni’s three decades in power only brought catastrophe, death, and poverty. If indeed it was a mustard seed that was sown, we must recognise that Uganda’s soil is not suitable for such a crop, and like any infectious species, it must be upgraded.
