Luwero was rationalized as a war launched because the 1980 elections were allegedly rigged in favor of the UPC.
The important considerations were to conceal NRA atrocities in Luwero, retain the goodwill of the Baganda and be seen (in Buganda) as punishing the "criminal Northerners".
The Luwero war, therefore, becomes the key in finding a common factor, and for the identification of which force, in the Luwero war, had the obsession as in the on-going wars.

 The Bull Missed Because M7 Is A Fox   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
President Yoweri Museveni was wielding the auctioneer's hammer at a fundraising in Ngoma, Luwero district, when a bull that was waiting at a distance to be brought to the floor, broke loose.
Luwero is where Museveni based the five-year guerrilla struggle that brought him to power in January 1986, after he took to the bush in February 1981 to protest the election theft of December 1980.
The people in Luwero are quite angry with Museveni, accusing him of riding to power on their backs, then cheating them when he got to State House.

 After Bigombe, it's time to close the Acholi `Bantustan'   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
When the task of rehabilitating Luwero after the NRM came to power turned out to require the level of economic and political investment that the government couldn't bring itself to put up, it was (like the rebellion in the north) contracted out of mainstream politics.
When some politicians grumbled about the NRM doing nothing for Luwero inspite of its great sacrifice during the bush war, the retort was that it was Baganda politicians who stole their own people's reconstruction money, who should be blamed.
In Luwero's case, the issue is atrophied, to leave out neighbouring districts like Mubende and Mpigi which were affected (though admittedly by a far lesser extent) by the NRA vs. UNLA war.

 The EastAfrican on the Web
Major-General Mugisha-Muntu, who was in the Luwero Triangle with President Museveni during the latter’s five-year guerilla war, told the press recently that all the atrocities there were committed by Obote, who was not in Luwero.
Nevertheless, the truth is that one or the other must be lying about the Luwero massacres — the one who was expected to protect the Uganda Constitution and operated in Luwero by remote control, and the one who rebelled against the Uganda Constitution and was based in Luwero.
Both Obote and Museveni have a moral duty to accept their responsibility for the Luwero massacres — Museveni for initiating it and Obote for failing to extinguish it, thereby presiding over a country that was a killing field.

  Luwero (population 20,000) and Lugazi (population 35,000), have been served for 6 months and 1 year respectively by Kalebu Ltd.   Lyantonde (population 6,000), Kalisizo (population 10,000) and Rakai (population 5,000), have each been served for one year by WSS Services Ltd. Both of these companies are Ugandan owned and managed.
It seems that the main limitation to the Public-Private Partnership in Luwero and Lugazi is lack of education, communication, and the time for all four stakeholders to clarify terms, roles and responsibilities.
However, in these apparently early days (though in fact half-way through several of the contracts) the private operators appear to be having a positive impact in terms of efficiency, value for money, quality, service delivery, customer care, and financial sustainability.

 Uganda - THE TEN-POINT PROGRAM
Until April 1985, the war was fought exclusively in Buganda, primarily in the Luwero Triangle (named for the area included within the roads between Kampala, Hoima, and Masindi) to oust the UPC government headed by Milton Obote.
NRA soldiers were taught the reasons for their struggle, to respect the villagers among whom they lived, and to pay for food and goods they needed.
The Ten-Point Program, written during the guerrilla campaign, reflects the principles with which the NRA created a disciplined army, organized popular support through RCs, and, in particular, developed a coherent political and economic explanation of why the NRA was fighting against the Ugandan government.
