Yoweri Museveni's 'Ideology' In A Few Tweets

Last year Ugandan blogger and journalist Angelo Izama presented the project Re-Engineering Journalism which stated goal is to 'enhance effective cooperation in the Great Lakes Region of Africa'. Today he writes on twitter:
Secessionist pressures in #Africa from Mali to the Kivus to Somalia and now Kenya moot a revision of colonial era maps. Why resist? #Uganda
African nationalism is questionable ab initio since nationalism was based on colonial precedent. What is #Uganda except HM former property?
These nationalists and patriots kept colonial era institutions & boundaries but say they are #African? #Zuma joins the circus in Marikana
 What #Africa needs today is a new "social" framework of "patriotism" not based on arbitrary borders or certainly not "national identity".
Voilà the summary of Yoweri Museveni's 'ideology' in a few tweets.
