Ssebuguzi Anselm: Bayindi can be a tribe in Uganda without complexes

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I have read views from different Ugandans about the proposed bill to recognize Indians as a tribe, both educated and non educated seem to have the same understanding of a tribe. And in my view, their understanding of ‘tribe’ is wrong.

One of them is Hon. Muhammad Nsereko who is a member of parliament, and I heard that he is as well a lawyer by education.

Hon. Muhammad Nsereko argues that Indians cannot be a tribe in Uganda because in India they already have over 365 tribes already, but let me help Hon. Nsereko and the scores of others who ignorantly think that a tribe is associated to one’s race and/ colour. 

First of all, the Indians proposed bill talks about Indians of Ugandans not Indians of India. The more than 365 tribes of Indian is a non issue in this case therefore.
