Dear Ikaze Iwacu readers, here is a document from Uganda governement archives, about the so-called « Hima-Tutsi » Master Plan. Publishing it does not mean now we endorse it. Rather, our intention is to take it out of the under-ground circulation and expose it to the critical eye of everybody. A wide discussion may help believers look at things more objectively. Your comments are most welcome.
MEETING HELD AT THE HOME OF H.E. PRESIDENT Y.M. MUSEVENI, THE PRESIDENT OF UGANDA AT RUSHERE NYABUSHOZI ON 15-3-1992
2. Opening Remarks by H.E. (Chairman)
3. Strategy for the next 50 years
4. Plan of Action
The meeting started with a prayer led by Rt. Rev. Bishop Ruhindi at exactly 11.00p.m. who prayed for good deliberations.
The Chairman, H.E. welcomed the Basita Clan and other clans present in his home. He briefed members present the purpose of the meeting and thanked organizers for a good job done. He told members that the only opportunity they have is this one when he is still President. He directed Hope Kivengyere to act as a link between his office and these people at grass roots. He told them that they were few in number and that he fought to liberate them so that they could be heard in society and Uganda at large. He reminded them of the need to have a master plan for at least fifty years if the Hima clan is to remain vibrant and rich.
H.E. told his listeners that if they cannot use the opportunity maximally, their daughters and sons would blame them in future. At this function he revealed to them a scheme and plan of action in order for them to achieve their desired goals as: To have the highest education qualifications during his term of office for their children. To make sure they are the richest people in Uganda with the 50 years master plan. To make sure they control the army and have the highest ranks in the army. To ensure that they take charge of all the resources in the country. To ensure none of those not concerned, not to know about the action plan.
Every one of them was directed to recruit the Bahima boys to join the army so that they could dominate the ISO, PPU, ESO and Military Police as this would assist in the resisting of other tribes that would attempt to take power by the use of force.
The chairman informed the members to unite so that they could remain the only kings in the region. He said that the master plan couldn’t be achieved unless 80% of their youths are properly trained and equipped with the best necessities to maintain these issues. At this juncture the chairman directed Mr. Elly Karuhanga to take charge of educating the sons and daughters and send them abroad in countries such as India, England, America and South Africa. Karuhanga accepted the responsibility without hesitation. The chairman also directed Mr. Kirimani to take charge of educating the daughters and sons internally, especially to ensure that he put up special school in Nyabushozi to cater for the interests of the group, On this note Mr. Kutesa suggested to upgrade Bunyanyeru Resettlement School from Nursery upto Secondary, which was passed with no arguments.
Mr. Elly Rwakakoko interjected the chairman’s speech by giving directions to members on the real discussion by introducing a new chapter of how H.E. could be succeeded after his term of office. On this point Mrs. Jovia Salim Saleh begged the members to ensure that after H.E. the next president must come from the Basita clan. She said that she had done a lot for the Basita and taken a lot of risks for the last 20 years and therefore it was important that the Basita take charge of the resources of the country. The members resolved that she was not in order.
Mzee Ephrann Rusimira suggested that the new president should be the brother to the president if the master plan is to succeed. He warned that if the Bairu and non Bahima clans got to know about the action plan, it would fail to take off.
Mzee Rutamwebwa suggested that Salim Saleh should go back to school if the objectives of the action are to be achieved. He suggested that Salim Saleh had to get a quote A0 Level Certificate and « A »Level Certificate. This was unanimously agreed to.
He also suggested that someone close, possibly the son of H.E. should be groomed to take over the reigns from Salim Saleh. This too was agreed on and the group begged H.E. to look around for a boy who would be groomed.The group also brainstormed about how to destroy those who would gang up to take power from the clan. Death was suggested for the potential leaders who would attempt to fail the master plan.
Mmute 7.00: The way Forward:
a) Deny other people access to economic resources through:
i. Overtaxing individuals and companies, which don’t belong to our people and protect those of our people.
ii. Destroying co-operative societies and unions.
iii. Selling Parastatals and public enterprises that others don’t gain from them.
iv. Commercialize education and health services.
b) Our people to be employed in lucrative public offices from which they should reap maximally while being protected from prosecution.
c) Destruction of the economic, military and political will of Northern and Eastern Uganda.
d) Immediate return of non-political Kabaka of Buganda while we promote disunity among the Buganda.
e) Uniting all Bahima in the Great Lakes Region and awakening their political, military and economic process.
f) Participating in the exploitation of economic resources of rich neighboring states.
g) Making strategic alliances with whatever power in the world that will enhance achievement of this plan.
Members recommended that all those given responsibility must ensure the achievement of the objectives. H.E. was mandated to appoint committees or individuals to implement the different aspects of the master plan. Confidentiality must be ensured at all costs.
