DRAUGHT IN UGANDA
It is sad the situation in many parts of Uganda due to draught. Many people have no food in their gardens, nor foodstuffs stored. Food security is a matter of history. Many water places have dried up, others have very little water. Trees including Coffee are drying up. You can imagine the quality of Coffer beans that will be harvested.
Everyday one sees truckfuls of Charcoal, meaning that trees are being cut at an increasing rate. Yet there is no sound policy in place to see to substitute to charcoal and firewood.
Under normal circumstances, there would be no famine in Uganda, but trust bad politics and I’ll advised policies, Uganda has got to where it is. A country with two rainy seasons with rivers and lakes here and there, it is a shame where we are.
Money is being wasted on useless projects as far as the welfare of the locals is concerned. We should by now have many farmers getting proper advice by extension officers over the strategies for better crop husbandry. The irrigation systems should be no news to our farmers. As of now, when its takes sometime without rain, majority of the farmers look on helplessly.
It is incumbent upon the NRM Government to play mature politics that will see the Agricultural sector properly nourished if Uganda is to improve on food security and as well boost the surplus for marketing internally and for export.February 10, 2017 at 10:46 pm #164February 10, 2017 at 10:49 pm #165
Big up to Islam faith.Am not a Muslim but i respect their charisma and faithfulness to Allah.
The many times prayed per day should be for all to learn in perfecting their faith too.
It was the foot of Allah watahala that scored CRANE goal.
While other players were eagerly waiting to kick start the game.
Historical scorer Farouk Miya tool a short time to recall Allah in the matter at hand.
Indeed Allah never betrayed Ugandans.

HOW COULD UGANDA PARLIAMENT SPEND SHS 2BN ON THE UNAA?
Uganda Government is better termed broke. Businesses that supplied to Government are in a fix recovering their money. A few weeks ago, the non – teaching staff in public universities were demanding for the monies as promised by none the less than the President. Some people want Intern Doctors to give their services for free. The list is endless.
How on earth does Parliament or even the Ministry of Finance end up releasing shs 2bn to MPs when the economy is in a sorry state? Did they go to counter Dr. Besigye’s allegations about the NRM Government or what?
It is not clear why it looks like the devil is in the driving seat in Uganda. Things that are going on are very disturbing. God we need Your intervention.February 10, 2017 at 11:03 pm #169
Another high profile Ugandan dies aboard a plane!
How many Ugandans will now stand up and mock Gen. #Sejusa? In 2013, 2014 and 2015 so many Ugandans made fun of this gentleman just like they mocked Hon. Mbabazi in 2014, 2015 and 2016. I do not know both these gentlemen but I read. I always paid attention to whatever they said whenever they talked.
May his soul not rest in peace until his death is avenged. The same goes for Gen. Aronda.
Doctors in South Africa are today expected to carry out a postmortem to establish the cause of death of Ambassador Najuna Njuneki, who collapsed and died aboard a plane yesterday.
“He got up from his seat, but before he could disembark, he collapsed and before they could take him to a health facility within the airport, he died,” Foreign Affairs minister Sam Kutesa told this newspaper by telephone from London.
Ambassador Njuneki was reportedly returning from a meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, with Ugandans living in Nordic countries. Vice President Edward Ssekandi attended the Diaspora gathering which, Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary James Mugume said, focused on investment.
As an Ambassador for Special Duties at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs headquarters in Kampala, Njuneki was in-charge the Diaspora community and coordinated the Ugandan aspect of the regional Northern Corridor Infrastructure projects.
“It is very unfortunate that he has died; it’s a sad thing. We don’t know the cause of death,” minister Kutesa said.
Preliminary reports suggest Ambassador Njuneki boarded the plane while seemingly in good health only to pass away upon landing in Johannesburg.
Uganda’s High Commission in Pretoria has taken charge of the body, according to Foreign Affairs ministry, and will handle it until it is flown back home on Wednesday.
“He was a hardworking person and it is a pity that we have lost him,” Ambassador Mugume said, adding: “A post-mortem will be done on Monday (today).”
Njuneki hailed from the western Mitooma District and his brother, Gerald Njuneki, in a facebook post said the ambassador was their first born and heir to the family of the late Geremu Njuneki.
“We need your prayers!” he noted.
Ambassador Njuneki becomes the second high-level Uganda government official to died abruptly on a plane, following the death almost a year ago of then Internal Affairs minister Aronda Nyakairima aboard an Emirates Airline plane while returning from South Korea.February 10, 2017 at 11:05 pm #170
WHY MUSEVENI REGRETS HIS DELAY TO DESTROY UGANDA’S EDUCATION
During his last 30 years of military dictatorship, Uganda’s Gen. Museveni has successfully destroyed all sectors of in his efforts to suppress dissent and subdue Ugandans into submission to his military dictatorship. He has socially, politically and economically destroyed the Ugandan society. However, the only pillar though shaky that still stands out amidst the rubbles of what was once described as the Pearl of Africa is the education sector.
Uganda’s flourishing education standard was inherited from the colonial era at independence. Even the previous so called ‘bad regimes’ that preceded the current 30 years old Museveni dictatorship did not tamper with the education sector. Actually the sector flourished more during the reign of the semi illiterate President Iddi Amin.
Since coming to power, Museveni has introduced several measures aimed at destroying education but because of its strong foundation that was laid down by the British, the post independence UPC government, and the Iddi Amin era, though limping the sector has thrived. He destroyed government technical colleges (UTC), colleges of commerce (UCC), national teachers colleges (NTC) and teacher training colleges (TTC) that had been set up in different regions of the country. The education curriculum and syllabus has repeatedly been changed without consulting teachers.
Museveni has repeatedly despised the studying of arts subjects and in the same regard a total of 32 courses related to political science and other humanities were recently scrapped from public universities. They will instead be replaced by the regime’s ideology that will be taught at its indoctrination centres – Kyankwanzi, Patriotism Clubs and the National Service (mandatory military training and service). Next he will ban religious studies before declaring Uganda a secular state under the guise of promoting national unity.
After unsuccessfully attempting to introduce Kiswahili in schools with the aim of destroying local languages and English, now the regime is reintroducing vernacular as a medium of teaching in lower primary schools. Since time in memorial vernacular had been the medium of teaching at lower primary schools; then what happened so that it is now being reintroduced. The aim is to gradually destroy the English language in our education system while preparing the way for the reintroduction of Kiswahili.
Once vernacular as a medium of teaching will have proved problematic in urban schools where pupils are from different tribal backgrounds thus diverse languages then it will be accused of undermining national unity, banned, and replaced by Kiswahili. Museveni hides behind national unity to destroy local languages in preference for Kiswahili. If a single language brings about national unity countries like Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, Libya, Syria etc. wouldn’t be in turmoil.
By targeting the English language, Museveni is attempting to promote ignorance and isolate Uganda in this era of globalisation. Its a fact that the destruction of the English language in Uganda will gravely negatively impact on the quality of education and languish the country 200 years back. To better appreciate this argument, one needs to interrogate why parents from neighboring countries are craving to send their children to Uganda for primary and secondary education.
By killing the English language, Museveni aims at limiting access by Ugandans to information in the global village for information is power. For Museveni, an ignorant population is easy to manipulate and oppress as they clap hands for the oppressor thus information is power. The thriving semblance of political dissent and activism is because of the sound education base that wad laid by the previous governments and he must be regretting as to why he delayed in launching an assault on education.
His current advocacy for vocational education is not in good faith but designed to achieve the above mentioned evil designs. He is aiming at replacing knowledge based education with an illiterate and semi illiterate dominated society who know nothing other than metal fabrication, brick laying, performing artists, craftsmen, musicians, sportsmen, herdsmen, cultivators and others in that category. The current situation is that even such categories have some basic knowledge of political, social and economic dynamics that empower them with the means to question and challenge some of the regime’s actions and manipulations.
The other day a commercial motorcycle transporter challenged an attempt to manipulate their group by the Kampala region police commander thus: “Why should we fear to die while protesting for our rights when those who were killed in the Luwero bush war 30 years ago did not fear death?” This kind of reasoning is what he intends to destroy so that such people don’t understand why the shilling is loosing value, the effects of over borrowing, the job description of a Member of Parliament, their human rights, democracy, constitutionalism, rule of law, causes of unemployment etc.
However, quality education is already becoming a preserve of a few Ugandans more especially his regime cronies whose children and grand children will inherit the domination of key administrative and managerial positions of the economic, social and political arena. Poor education breeds ignorance that breeds a poverty and disease stricken society that in turn makes it easy for manipulation for political expediency. There Ugandans need to stand up and defend the education sector because its all that remains of Uganda.February 10, 2017 at 11:12 pm #171
OPEN SKY’ POLICY TO EASE TRAVEL AND BOOST EA TOURISM
Four East African countries are working on an open sky policy to make it easy for travelers and operators to move through the region.
In the deal, airlines from four member countries would operate as domestic carriers.
Kenya Civil Aviation Authority director general Gilbert Kibe said Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and South Sudan are holding talks on a multi-lateral air service agreement. “Before the end of this year, we shall know the way forward on the matter,” he said.
It is agreeable that hotels are almost empty as only a few airlines have been licensed to operate scheduled flights to particular airports in the East African region. Perhaps an open sky approach will spur travel within the region, especially in the form of citizens of East Africa visiting other parts of the East African region.
East African states are moving away from marketing individual countries, to pooling resources, and marketing East Africa, as a single tourism destination with the tagline “seamless boarders”, and using incentives like the single tourist visa which permits a traveler to visit Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda under a single visa.February 10, 2017 at 11:19 pm #172
WHY YOWERI MUSEVENI CRAVES TO STAY IN POWER
Uganda’s military dictator Gen. Museveni has been in power for the last 29 years and is seeking another five year term. This time round he is no longer pretending to be a democrat but has come out openly more determined than ever before to use fully blown military dictatorial means to remain in power. Here below are the reasons why he so much craves to remain in power:
1. Since his childhood, he craved so much to gain the presidency of Uganda; he has a feeling of being morally obliged to remain president for life. He is naturally power hungry.
2. During his presidency he has committed gross human rights violations and war crimes both in Uganda and the neighboring countries such that he fears that if he leaves power, he will be held accountable.
3. He has committed serious economic and political discrimination against Ugandans in favor of certain ethnic communities and political cliques such that he needs to stay in power so that he guarantee security of their ill-gotten privileged political positions and economic status. This is the category of Ugandans that Museveni always refers to as ‘building a middle class society’.
4. He hopes to become the first President of the East African regional political integration if he can manage to manipulate the new leadership of Tanzania the same way he has done with Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, and South Sudan
5. He hopes to preside over the oil wealth which he has publicly declared as his in order to benefit his preferred ethnic communities and regime cadres while a bigger portion will be dedicated to building a strong army with sophisticated military arsenals while majority Ugandans will be dying of hunger, ignorance and preventable diseases.
6. He is not yet done with military aggression against neighboring countries in order to influence political changes that ensure client regimes. The oil wealth will play a bigger role in regional instability. Uganda will be the hub of regional dissidents and Ugandans will bear the brunt of reprisal attacks. He won’t rest not until he succeeds in curving out independent states out of eastern DRC and possibly north western Tanzania.
7. Being a Marxist/communist, he feels he is not yet fully done with venting his anger against the capitalist world. His current honeymoon with Russia, China and North Korea points to this direction. He is aspiring to become the communist block’s regional proxy and the west is yet to suffer his worst humiliation.
8. He is buying time for his son who is currently the head of the army to take over from him.
9. He feels that he has not yet fully subdued Ugandans intellectually, psychologically, socially, politically, and economically. Once Ugandans will have lost political consciousness and unanimously adore him as God sent, then he may leave power to someone of his choice. By then the regime security forces will have taken center stage in determining who hold which public office through vetting by the secret services. They will be the ones to set and enforce terms and conditions for holding public offices, regulate all forms of freedom for Ugandans, and decide on who can live or die. At the time regular electoral processes will have become merely ceremonial. The so called national constitution will have been turned into a regime constitution and he will have earned for Ugandans the reputation of being ‘peace loving, united, and nationalistic’ people. That way, Gen. Museveni will go in the books of history as The Father of the Nation.February 10, 2017 at 11:25 pm #173

The community of Moru-Irion, Ngora Sub County in Ngora District is in need of making better a local water source which supports about 50 households with an average of 7 members each. They invited us to help them with technical assessment of the spring well for possible development and protection and our WASH volunteer specialist, Engineer Okello Deo (in whitish shirt) joined them in carrying out a feasibility of the spring well. Such water sources are usually fed by shallow ground water and because of climate change the water quantity may be a serious challenge during certain times of the year.February 10, 2017 at 11:34 pm #175February 10, 2017 at 11:38 pm #176
Alcohol and pork is against Christian beliefs
Alcohol and pork is against Christian beliefs too but some people just tend to ignore the things they don’t agree with……..For their credit: the reason why Christians eat pork and other things forbidden in Leviticus and Deuteronomy is because in the New Testament a disciple named Peter had a dream where he was told by God to eat the forbidden things, he said no because they were forbidden and the response was to stop making things that he had made clean, unclean.Catholics believe drinking is ok but most non catholic christian churches teach that alcohol is wrong. Also Jesus Christ declared all foods clean (Mark 7:14-19).Most Christians don’t read the Bible –they just follow what someone else tells them to do and says that it is in the Bible.February 10, 2017 at 11:45 pm #177
