The Dichotomy of M7's rule in Uganda!

A dichotomy is any splitting of a whole into exactly two non-overlapping parts: jointly exhaustive: everything must belong to one part or the other, and mutually exclusive: nothing can belong simultaneously to both parts. In Uganda's case this dichotomy is exemplified by M7's adoption of the trappings of democracy alongside the pitfalls of despotism for the sole purpose of overextending his stay in power. M7 has in fact adopted "two divergent impulses": one that seems to promote civil rights and political liberties; and another that virtually curtails those same rights and liberties with violence and repression on a whim!
