    Africans must go to the moon

    Entebbe, Uganda - Africans must travel to the moon to investigate what developed nations have been doing in outer space, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said on Saturday.

    "The Americans have gone to the moon. And the Russians. The Chinese and Indians will go there soon. Africans are the only ones who are stuck here," Museveni said, addressing a meeting of the Uganda Law Society in Entebbe.

    "We must also go there and say: 'What are you people doing up here?'."

    Museveni urged the assembly of Uganda's top lawyers to support East African integration, arguing that one of the region's goals should be to develop a space programme.

    "Uganda alone cannot go to the moon. We are too small. But East Africa united can. That is what East African integration is all about," he said. "Then we can say to the Americans: 'What are you doing here all alone?'."

    Museveni has vocally campaigned for a common East African economic and political zone.

    Negotiations to establish a tariff free trade zone including Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda have been ongoing for months.

    Museveni on Saturday also called for enhanced political integration among the East African nations, suggesting the region would be strengthened by becoming one country.

    Old Mu7 must be getting nuts!
    Go to the moon and look down at the starving kids and families north of Uganda and the rest of Africa!
    Above all Mu7 was addressing a meeting of Lawyers? the more intriguing.
    Most of them must have been bemused as to what the heck he was talking about.
    I have always said this guy Mu7 gives me the creeps,the more he stays in power, the more he loses connection to the peoples needs.

    Baiskeli tunaweza kutengeneza na Rocket ship tunaweza tengeneza because they are not new things.. the only thing is that we do not have vision.. History has shown that weak nations are wiped out of the world map.. That is what shall happen to us.. because we are pulling ourselves down when we are already being pushed down by the others.. Weak leadership, illiterate population... DOOM

    Kusema ukweli hata kama Museven angekuwa ni mtu wa maana kiasi gani EAC haiwezi kuanzishwa vyema kukiwa na wazo lake la kuwa Rais wa hiyo EAC.

    You must be nuts to take M7's "going to the moon" remarks seriously.
