Life is a state of mind.Jack Warden
- I did not, I could not and I will never invite Obote, ... This is because Obote is someone who made a lot of mistakes in our history.
- Some people say accident, it may be an accident, it may be something else. The (helicopter) was very well equipped, this was my (helicopter) the one I am flying all the time, I am not ruling anything out. Either the pilot panicked... either there was some side wind or the instruments failed or there was an external factor.
- If Gen. Omar el Bashir's government gives me permission to pursue Kony beyond the red line, it will only take me 30 minutes to finish him and his fighters.
- Even when we were still fighting in the bush against the oppressive dictatorships of Idi Amin and Milton Obote, we introduced elections for the committees of the villages under our control.
- In 1972, Idi Amin expelled 80,000 [Ugandan] Indians and confiscated their 4,000 properties. Now, after returning those properties to their rightful owners, we have ensured that security of persons and property are guaranteed under the constitution.
- Africa is wealthy in natural resources; the problem is they are not optimally utilized.
- When we sell a kilo of bean coffee in Uganda, we get one dollar per kilo. The same kilo, when it is processed [and sold in Britain], goes for $10, $11 or even more a kilo. That is the same situation [price disparity] that goes for all raw materials.
- We fought a lonely battle against terrorism sponsored by Sudan, and we have defeated it; we cannot be intimidated by any force. For us our guide is the Constitution of Uganda and the laws there under.
- I shall not be deterred by people who don't see where the future of Africa lies. It is the short-sighted people who put their opinions in writing. They don't understand that the future of all countries lies in processing.
- You cannot, for instance, sustainably protect the environment if the majority of the people are still in primitive agriculture leading to the encroachment of forest reserves.
- If we could export more finished products instead of raw materials, we could become a middle-income country.
