She continues to narrate, “We talked. We spoke Luganda. I asked him why a handsome guy like him can support the ugly brutal corrupt dictatorship misgoverning Uganda. I told him, I was working with others who are opposed to the spreading of dictator Museveni’s ideology in Uganda and the diaspora. He told me it was impossible for anyone to stop the NRM diaspora convention from sitting in Munich. I told him I want to attend the convention with the objective of debating, criticizing, and condemning the egregious atrocities committed in Uganda for four 36 years. He said I was welcome to attend.

And so, after opposing this convention, I am now an invited panelist to the re-scheduled event. My people, should I go or should I reject the invitation? , Dr. Stella Asked.
