Violent Instability

Uganda is “at risk of violent instability” come next year (2014), a US Intelligence threat assessment report has stated. This report is released every four years after the US President is elected, by the National Intelligence Council, and it names Uganda among 14 other countries that risk becoming a failed state, given their potential for conflict and environmental evils, which in Uganda includes poor governance, corruption and poverty.

As we know all too well from history, the first thing people tend to do in times of corruption and austerity is look for a scapegoat. Hate is an easy distraction.
