President Museveni has since abandoned his socialist roots. Uganda’s economy today is operating on free-market neo-liberalism and with all the impurities and absurdities that come with it. No wonder, another Ugandan astutely noticed that: “Many years after the book was published, Clarke is now a multimillionaire (here in Uganda); while Kawoko, the home of his book, is still a backward village.” Food for thought indeed!
Castigating President Museveni for his comments diverts attention from the fact, for example, that many married professional carrier women and politicians, such as Hon. Janet Museveni, who is currently not only the First Lady, but is also the Minister of Education, likely hardly do the cooking in their homes, if at all.
