Rt Hon Robinah Nabanja, allow me bring you greetings from Kahengye Kebisoni Town Council- Rukungiri District.
We have been following you from the day you were appointed by President Museveni as a Prime Minister of Uganda and trust me, as much as you least expected to be appointed to that position, we were also surprised by Mr Museveni’s choice of Cabinet Ministers and a few Permanent secretaries as well the Resident District Commissioners/Resident City Commissioners (RDCs/RCCs) in this new National Resistance Movement (NRM) Government Kissanja of yours.

[Devil calling thieves to dine with him]

Thief!
It’s the banquet of the thieves!
Come and dine with me!
It’s the banquet of the thieves!

[Third world dictator thief steps forward]

I am the greatest thief there has ever been on Earth
I came to power in a military coup, I murdered the elected president
He wanted to use the resources of our country for our peoples’ benefit
I proved to masters in the west
I could kill my own people just as well as the best to keep in power
(Lyrics from Thieves Banquet by Akala)

New Land Act Amendments targeting Buganda will fail – Sekigozi Stephen

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Buganda is a Kingdom that has been in existence for centuries. Buganda has a strong culture and a set of traditional systems it believes in. Buganda also occupies a very strategic area in terms a friendly environment, fertile land, several minerals and natural resources including natural forests, fresh water lakes and rivers and vegetation. In modern days, one would call Buganda a self-contained state / nation.

Buganda is a lovely place to live in and I have heard many people from different parts of this country and elsewhere in the world wishing to settle in Buganda. No wonder there are a number of people from Eastern Uganda and from my clan who settled in Bugerere, from West Nile settled in Bulemezi and from several parts of Uganda who are in Kyadondo and Busiro.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As we celebrate world snake day 16/July 2021, many people die of snakebites despite the covid 19 pandemic and our health workers have little clue on the treatment procedures.

As Herp fauna foundation (u)Ltd we want to make all people aware about this neglected disease and how to hand a snakebite.

Snake bites are life-threatening injuries that can require intensive care. The diagnosis and treatment of venomous snake bites is sometimes difficult for clinicians because sufficient information has not been provided in clinical practice.

NTV Uganda is a thief.

“Every rascal is not a thief, but every thief is a rascal” -Aristotle

The dick in hand saga which aired live on the NTV Uganda Mix Show of Friday 25 June 2021 is a comedy of errors that started with a dubious ‘restructuring’ exercise on 25 March 2021 whereby competent experts were fired in favour of cheaper greenhorns and wannabes.

The whole shebang definitely got out of hand after Tony Glencross fired eagle-eyed veterans, leaving NTV Uganda Mix Show in the sweaty palms of 3 unqualified lackeys who couldn’t properly assess risk in broadcasting live events contributed by members of the audience.

COVID-19: My experience so far in Pallisa district – Okoler Opio Lo Amanu

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Today, we have sent off a member of the SDA Church and also a brother-in-law of our family in Osupa village, Pallisa Town Council in Pallisa District who succumbed to COVID-19 last night.

Muko Samwiri would be living if we had an oxygen facility in Pallisa General Hospital but because the health workers were unable to help without oxygen they referred him to Soroti Regional Referral Hospital, it takes an average of one hour to drive from Pallisa to Soroti but the ambulance wasn’t available either. Muko died but very painful death.

The challenge of democratic politics – Andrew M. Mwenda

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Someone sent a quote allegedly from a one “Prof.” PLO Lumumba to an internet chatgroup I belong to. Lumumba claims to have run for a parliamentary constituency and I supposed in his native country of Kenya. He is quoted saying: “I held 250 town hall meetings.

I articulated solutions to our problems in my constituency. My opponent did not campaign at all. He gathered money and showed up one day to elections. He distributed money. He won. Africans are not moved by ideas. Their stomach leads them.”

Is COVID-19 a cold world war three weapon – Akampa

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Well, as Uganda’s COVID-19 new infections and death rise each and every day.
And entire Uganda is being put on a total lockdown, my National Resistance Movement (NRM) Government through the new Prime Minister promises a COVID-19 relief cash to the vulnerable Ugandans whose numbers are not already established!

By the way this idea is so good but so impossible to be implemented due to the fact that our Country seems to be fire fighting with very many uncoordinated schemes, programmes, debts (internal and external). The pronouncement was good but a mockery to the poor Ugandans. We seem to be living in two different Countries as Ugandans and our Government.

Labour externalization a lifeline for youth affected by COVID-19 – Ronnie Mukundane

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Labour externalization was one of the subsectors of Uganda’s economy that were severely hit by the resurgent Covid-19. First, Uganda’s main destination countries for migrant workers like the Kingdoms of Saudi Arabia and Jordan and UAE were the worst hit and had to impose lockdowns. Then the Government of Uganda had to impose a national Lockdown in March 2020 and the current one of 42 days to tame the raging pandemic.
