Veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda has said Uganda’s national anthem is a total disaster.
In his Saturday tweet, the controversial political analyst revealed that if he became a dictator, it would be the first thing he would abolish on his first day in office, replacing it with Buganda’s anthem.
“I would replace it with a revised Buganda anthem, which I find meaningful and inspiring!” he twitted.
Uganda’s national anthem is a total, complete and absolute disaster. If I became dictator of Uganda, it would be the first thing I would abolish on my first day in office. I would replace it with a revised Buganda anthem, which I find meaningful and inspiring!

The national anthem was adopted in 1962, with words and music by George Wilberforce Kakoma. At just eight bars of music, it is one of the shortest in the world, and it is usually performed with two verses in order to lengthen it.
