I would like to thank Rama Isibo for his interesting and balanced article (“He who pays the piper calls the tune”, Jan 6).

The current debate in Uganda mirrors ongoing struggles in other parts of the Continent.
These conflicts may look uncoordinated on the surface but the bottom lines are exactly the same - global interests versus local traditions.
