It was not so beautiful but fulfilled the purpose for which a name would be given. The Kampala children’s park once existed along Bombo road and was found between two great institutions. Established in a not so big but enough safe open space, under the watchful eye of every concerned citizen. With a simple circular shelter both in roofing and sitting space just in case, it rained. Indeed it had great neighbours; the Army school for the Disabled to the south, Makerere University to the west and Mulago hospital to the East. The convenience of accessibility was enabled by Bombo road and the alternate route leading to the Mulago roundabout. It was a resting place not only for children but also for those who needed the services of Mulago hospital, Makerere University and many others who had business around the area.
Its location alone provided enough security for the children in case the water channel going through was well fenced. I can’t tell how this children’s place inconvenienced Museveni so much to the extent of giving it away to the veterans of all places. There remains no other free to go open place in Kampala just for the convenience of children. I am informing all children in Uganda that the man who calls himself your grandfather even when he is not related to you because he is Rwandan gave away your park to army veterans to build shops. This is enough reason to indicate his enmity towards our children. He destroyed your park because he can fly his children out to Disney world at any particular moment in time moreover on your parents’ tax money.
In no way does he deserve the title of ‘grandfather’. The people currently occupying this space will pay to have it restored. No sound-minded person would be walking that place to buy anything sold there; a place mostly occupied by Rwandans, who are busy wasting their time thinking they will take Uganda over forcefully. To all Rwandans, your god Museveni is going to die, Muhoozi will be arrested and you will flee Uganda by all means and the children’s park will be restored.
