Angel Tyra Muwanguzi is an 8-year-old girl who was given a chance to look into the future when she was made the army chief in Uganda. The future belongs to the children of this generation. The earlier that fact is known and accepted, the better it will be for us when it comes to grooming and preparing them for the future. They are the ones who will take the reins from us when we no longer have the strength to jump and move around.
Investing in their future is a way of ensuring our grey days are taken care of, for our toil and pains will amount to no gain if they lay to ruin all we have ever worked for. Young Muwanguzi replaced General Katumba Wamal, Uganda’s chief of defense forces. She ruled as the chief for 10 minutes.
This is an interesting thing because the pupil of Train Up a Child primary school in Bugolobi was able to have an idea of what being in power feels like. The scheme was put in place in order to encourage children and show women that everything is possible. They can soar to whatever height they want to in as much as they have what it takes to fly and they are ready to. This was done to inspire women so they could operate on the same frequency as the men. Muwanguzi’s assumption of office was done to commemorate the International day of the girl child. The event was organised by Ugandan wing of Plan International in conjunction with Gals Forum International, a local NGO.
Even though this program was done to inspire and motivate the upcoming generation, it is an event that will have a lasting impact on the girls who have the opportunity to assume official positions. Raquelina Langa had a swell time experience when she asked United Nation’s secretary general, Ban Ki-moon if a girl like her could be in his position. In 2014, she had the opportunity to become the UN secretary general for a whole day. It is quite sad to know that the Mozambican young girl passed on early this year.
