Here is the bitter truth to everyone;
If you have lived long enough, you will lose your way at some point. You will lose your way, you will wake up one morning and find yourself lost. This is hard but its the simple truth. If it hasn’t happened to you yet, consider yourself lucky because this time it happened to an innocent and young soul.It is so sad because another life was wasted. A little restless spirit was roaming, crying out to GOD day and night. It’s another curse for Uganda for such an unjustifiable and senseless killing. Ha! He was just 13 years of age driven by hunger and taste. He stole to fill his hungry stomach not to buy cars or build mansions, not to send his siblings abroad or to walk with police and army escorts. He stole because times are hard. He was only a 13 years old hungry boy. It was only fried cassava that he stole and he stole it because he wanted something to eat but not to save it in the bank. The heartless fools caught him, beat him up blue and black and the little kid laid there wiping and wailing. He was then bearing not just the hunger pains in his stomach but also the endless beating. He cried out, he searched through the crowd for a heaven sent savior, the one who has ever felt his type of hunger, the only one who could say ”he is just a 13 years hungry boy”. But no one. There was no savior but only the self proclaimed righteous judges, the ones who have never stolen in their life and people who have never been hungry. And while he was still searching for help hoping for one last miracle from heaven, the beatings died down. He sighed thinking the beating had ended thinking he was going to be set free. But while still lost in his thoughts, the Tyre came heavily put around his neck and fuel was poured on him. Fuel that was worthy much more than the cassava he stole. He looked to heaven one last time and murmured a few words which seems to be a little prayer before he finally burst up in flames. And the self proclaimed saints without sins or who have never known hunger celebrated because they thought they had got rid of a bad egg in the society yet politicians steal billions of money and still walk around freely and celebrated.
He was only years old. He was just hungry. He stole fried cassava to fill his empty stomach. And the Ugandan saints killed him.
Such are the actions that keep us working so hard as Milele Foundation Uganda to leave a child torture free world because everybody deserves a happy life
Rip little boy.
Please forgive us.
Please don’t condemn us before our maker.
