Uganda my Motherland

Margieug
Posted July 23, 2021 from Uganda

Amidst all the human rights abuses under this dictatorial government, Ugandans have kept calm. But it's getting to our nerves when the international bodies keep supporting the dictator and his regime.

Day and night Ugandans getting poorer, mother's dieing due to limited BEOS, girls forced into early marriages due to the poor education services, high inflation with limited incomes.

Ooooh maama Uganda, who on Earth will rescue my Motherland?!

A call for Ugandans to rise up for our Country.

Hello dear sister. Your love for your country branches out to me, right here where I am sitting and writing to you. Thank you for sharing this story. I am saddened for the victims, my heart goes out to them. Nobody deserves to be deprived of basic needs. Stand strong my sister! Stand strong for your country! Much love and prayers to you and yours.

Thank you dear, we shall always stand to be the voice of the voiceless.
Many people are silently crying but their voices cannot be heard.
For God and my Country.

Dear Margiug,
We are all in the hands of governments who are complicit in this system that does what many rich businesspeople command. We need strong voices like yours, unafraid to call out these governments. So many women from so many countries calling out the even new levels of violence, with these increases in girls being married off. Welcome to World Pulse where we are determined to create change. It is so good to have you with us.

Hello Margieug,

How are you doing today? Hope you are doing well. A warm welcome to World Pulse.
It is a sad picture you paint there and sadly, it seems to be the norm rather than the exception for Africa generally. It seems International bodies will continue to turn a blind eye so long as the dictators are there to serve their interest until Africans themselves work in unity and solidarity to fight off this uncomfortable yoke.

Looking forward to reading more from you.
Warm regards

Thank you dear sister, it's true the international bodies have done great job in keeping African dictators in power but it's only and only the Africans to rise up and fight for their own countries.
I am sure that with the worldpulse network we shall learn from one another enabling us to help our communities.
Together we can speak and achieve more.
God bless

A very warm welcome to the Pulse, Margie. My heart rises to your call to action through the love for your country flowing in every word. I love that the call to action is for your fellow Citizens and not international bodies, because maybe that will be Africa's salvation, when citizens say no to corrupt leaders that care little for its people.

I pray that all will be well one day, for continued courage to stand up for justice, and patient hope in these dark times.

Dear Margiug,

A warm welcome to World Pulse, and thank you so much for sharing with us your powerful first post. Courageous, real and informative for all of us to know what is happening in Uganda, keep sharing your power and your voice and having the courage to name injustice out loud, and call others in your own country to rise up -- that is something so many of us can learn from.

Thank you for bring our awareness of Uganda. Women and girls need more help in Uganda. Is there any NGO can offer assistance? Also, education is important.
Please continue to speak out to bring the awareness. Believe there is a better tomorrow!
May Almighty God bless you all!

Thank you Rebecca, I am glad to have joined this network of courageous women and am sure I will learn more from all of you sisters.
Uganda has always been blessed with very many things starting from it's hospitality, climate, and so forth.
Many organisations have really tried to help but at time they are also overwhelmed because the government has totally neglected it's people leading to many people continuing to suffer.
We shall keep our voices high to speak for the many that are voiceless.
God bless

Shame on African dictators and the international community who pretend not to notice what is going on in most African countries. We can only continue to speak up and educate community members, hoping for a change in future. Looking forward to reading from you again dear sister.
I hope you are well and keeping safe.

Greetings Margieug,
Thanks for sharing the horrific situations that are ongoing in Uganda. I work and live traveling in Africa, I can relate to your sorrow and frustrations. Fortunately women are a strong force but we too need support and helping and caring for women and girls in poverty whom are always subject to the issues you mentioned here.
The only one who will save us is us women joining forces with resources to fight, perseverence and move forward.
Be ever ready to don't give up and take a stand.
best regards.
Mama Queen
