ARE WE FIGHTING THE WRONG ENEMY? Malaria kills more Ugandans than Al-Shabaab, ADF & LRA combined

We buy insanely expensive Jet fighters and choppers while some of our citizens can’t afford basic medical care.

Malaria kills thousands of Ugandans every year, most of which are children and pregnant women, but we allocate more resources and funds toward the security sector while our real enemy lies far from the security of the country.

In 2013, The New Vision reported that the annual death toll due to malaria had hit the 100,000 mark. (http:// www.newvision.co.ug/new_vision/news/1319285/100-ugandans-die-malaria-minister)

We spend over 1.5 trillion on security, a large portion of our security forces carry guns that cost more than their monthly salary. We spend that much while thousands continue to die of malaria.

Malaria isn’t just a disease, it could mean the difference between a good & ugly economy. Some tourists choose not to come to Uganda for fear of the disease. Doctors, teachers, civil servants, taxpayers and other contributors to the economy all get affected by malaria.

With many children dying of malaria, the age gap will grow leaving many old employees in the economy. I can’t seem to find words stressing the importance of young people in the economy.

We buy insanely expensive Jet fighters and choppers while some of our citizens can’t afford basic medical care.

Until the day we to come realise that we are fighting the wrong enemy, thousands will continue to die
