Honour Libyans Not Qidhafi!|
Below is a copy of the Email I sent to Makerere
University of Uganda!

Congratulations! On your upcoming 40th graduation
congregation.However, it is disturbing to learn that
your university is planning to award the dictator
Muamer Qidhafi of Libya with honorary doctorate law
degree. This will alert the international media
attention, therefore the well established reputation
of Makerere University is at risk.
The only law Qidhafi practices is "his own" law of
terror and oppression. There are 2500 political
prisoners in Libya without fair trials. There are 5
million Libyans under his oppressive dictatorial
regime since 1969. There is not any juridical system
in Libya, thus Libya is ruled by his ruthless
supporters under his mad man "laws". Qadhafi's very
own secret service of the evil international
terrorism! Is convicted of blowing up Pan Am flight
103 over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988.
The very same evil terrorism act has happened within
few hours of the 4th anniversary of the PAN AM
disaster! December 22, 1992, Qadhafi has committed the
traumatic act of blowing the Libyan Flight Airline
1103, one hundred and fifty seven Libyans among them
40 foreigners perished from the sky. Once again all
the reports and evidence related to the tragedy
confirmed that it has been planned and executed by
agents of the regime in accordance with orders from
the "honorary candidate Qidhafi".
Also Qidhafi has been convicted "by Law " and wanted
by a French judge for his own terrorism on the UTA
DC-10 exploded on 19 September, 1989 over Niger while
on a flight from Brazzaville, Congo, to Paris. Qadhafi
has transferred more than 200 million franc ($31m) to
compensate the families of 170 people killed in a 1989
bombing of a French airliner over Africa. In March
1999, a Paris court sentenced six Libyans to life
sentences in absentia for placing a bomb on the plane.
The most senior of them is Abdalla Senoussi, Colonel
Muammar Qadhafi's brother-in-law.
Qadhafi has supported Idi Amin in the past and the
result of that, as you are well aware! half a million
Uganda citizens killed. And the thousands of Libyans
killed in Uganda during the war with Tanzania.
How could Makerere University honour someone like
Qadhafi who turned Libyan universities 's courtyards
into horrific scene by executing and hanging students
opposed his "Law and Order"? . There is not education
infrastructure in Libya! Students across the board are
suffering from the lack of laboratory equipment,
healthy enviromenent, books-materials and most of all
a save place to learn. Do You Care?
Taken into consideration the real facts about Qadhafi!
Is it worth it for your university to associate itself
with such inhumane dictator and world-renowned
terrorist? Is it really worth it for your university
to be financially supported by the money taken from
the needy and poor Libyans?
If Makerere University ever decided to honour people,
then it should honour the oppressed Libyans by
rejecting the unwise idea of honouring Qadhafi and
firmly telling him to take care of his own people
At the end! Whatever Makerere University Council and
the Senate decide on the 24th of September, it would
"accordingly" reflect on Makerere University as an
educational institution first, and on your country
Uganda as a whole.
