The last time the piglets were seen at a government facility was in August 2015; they were dropped at the Ugandan parliament.
The world’s greediest beasts were dropped by a man riding on motor cycles.
They were painted yellow (the ruling party’s favourite colour) with writings “M-Pigs”, “We are equally NRM” inscribed on their skins.
In June 2014, Robert Mayanja and Norman Tumuhimbise, dropped two piglets named “M-Pigs” at Parliament equating the country’s legislators’ greed to that of pigs.
More yellow painted pigs were later dropped at Watoto church and Total Jinja Road opposite Uganda House by a motorcyclist.
On Labour Day 2015, the yellow pigs, symbolic of corruption, were thrown on the streets of Jinja town.
The pigs had hats resembling the historical President Yoweri Museveni’s hat.
Satire meets history
Back in the 90s, a British author, George Orwell, published a famous fable titled “Animal Farm”.
In the fable that was to later conquer the world as the best depiction of the 1917 Russian Revolution, Orwell painted the picture of greedy militaristic despots through his main character, Napoleon (a prize boar).
Napoleon’s right-hand man was Squealer, a nomenclature of spy and informer taking the shape of modern government spies who bug or record politicians on tapes unknowingly.
With the help of Squealer, Napoleon was able to banish Snowball, a symbol of democracy and reinstate totalitarianism which they fought against while still under the maltreatment of farmer, Jones.
By the end of the book, Napoleon, a pig is much alike humans than farmer Jones himself.
One of the characters, Benjamin the donkey is reputed for having philosophically said: “what goes around always comes around” to summarise the failure of the Russian Revolution.
